BASURA v. US HOME CORP., B151131

Code of Civil Procedure section 1298.7 is preempted by the Federal Arbitration Act where undisputed facts indicate that agreements involve interstate commerce, thus arbitration of construction defect claims is compelled; where seller failed to initial arbitration clauses in sales agreements with certain buyers, factual inquiry must determine whether seller intended to be bound by arbitration with those buyers.
