I am in Oklahoma. My wife and I recently purchased a new home. Since moving in we have come across several problems which are covered under the warranty for the house. The problem is, we can no longer locate the builder. All phone numbers we have for him have been disconnected and he is not responding to any mail that is sent to the address that we have for him. Is there any action we can take to show that these problems existed before the warranty runs out (in about 6 months), or any other action we can take to have the repairs made under the warranty even though we can't find the builder? I would hate to get stuck paying to repair something that the builder should be responsible for just because he's made himself hard to find.

Thanks for any help,

If the warranty is from a third party company, file a claim. If the waranty came form the builder, well, you know it's as good as nothing.
