Abstract: In Korea, defect disputes regarding apartment buildings are becoming social issues. In particular, the term of warranty liability, which is an important criterion for defect disputes, lacks sufficient groundings for its establishment, leading to increased number of conflicts about the timing of defect occurrence as well as responsibilities for the defects. In the present research, we compare the trend of defect occurrence between painting work and finish work in apartment buildings during the last ten years to determine the validity of the current term of warranty liability. As a result, defect occurrence in painting work occurs from the first year to the fifth year. This trend is different from the finish work as a whole and also from the work which has one or two years of the term of warranty liability. Therefore, we recommend establishing a separate criterion for the term of warranty liability of painting work, which is different from other types of finish work.
