Arbitration – Real Property – Sale of Completed Home – FAA Inapplicable – Intrastate Contract – First Impression (access required)

Bradley v. Brentwood Homes, Inc. When a buyer contracts to buy a completed house, the fact that out-of-state contractors were involved in building the house does not convert an intrastate contract into one involving interstate commerce. Therefore, the Federal Arbitration Act is inapplicable. Since the contract did not satisfy the requirements of the S.C. Uniform Arbitration Act, the buyer was not required to submit his claims to arbitration.
