(a) Upon entering into a contract for construction or remodel of a dwelling, the contractor shall provide notice to the potential claimant of the contractor's right to offer to repair construction defects before a claimant may commence litigation against the contractor. Such notice shall be conspicuous and may be included as part of the underlying contract.

(b) Such notice shall be in substantially the following form: Kansas law contains important requirements you must follow before you may file a lawsuit for defective construction against the contractor who constructed your home. Ninety days before you file your lawsuit, you must deliver to the contractor a written notice of any construction conditions you allege are defective and provide your contractor the opportunity to make an offer to repair or pay for the defects. You are not obligated to accept any offer made by the contractor. There are strict deadlines and procedures under state law, and failure to follow them may affect your ability to file a lawsuit.
