AS 34.08.630. Express Warranties of Quality.

(a) An express warranty made by a seller to a purchaser of a unit, if relied upon by the purchaser, is created as follows:

(1) any affirmation of fact or promise that relates to the unit, its use, or rights appurtenant to the unit, area improvements to the common interest community that would directly benefit the unit, or the right to use or have the benefit of facilities not located in the common interest community, creates an express warranty that the unit and related rights and uses will conform to the affirmation or promise;

(2) a model or description of the physical characteristics of the common interest community, including plans and specifications of or for improvements, creates an express warranty that the common interest community will conform to the model or description;

(3) a description of the quantity or extent of the real estate comprising the common interest community, including plats of surveys, creates an express warranty that the common interest community will conform to the description, subject to customary tolerances; and

(4) a provision that a purchaser may put a unit only to a specified use is an express warranty that the specified use is lawful.

(b) Formal words such as "warranty" or "guarantee" and the specific intention to make a warranty are not necessary to create an express warranty of quality, but a statement purporting to be merely an opinion or commendation of the real estate or its value does not create a warranty.

(c) A conveyance of a unit transfers to the purchaser each express warranty of quality made by a previous seller.
