Design Professionals Bill Becomes Law

4-24-13  SB 286 was signed by the Governor becoming law Chapter No. 2013-028, Laws of Florida

Senator Negron's bill allowing individual design professionals (including surveyors) to limit their liability for professional malpractice in their contracts has passed both houses and been submitted to the Governor.  The Governor must act on this bill by April 29.

This is very similar to the issue facing the title industry (and many others) following the Supreme Court's limitation of the economic loss rule to product liability cases.   An unhappy homebuyer will be able to sue their title agent in negligence notwithstanding any limitation contained in the title policy or even policy limits.
