Notwithstanding the provisions of NRS 40.600 to 40.695, inclusive, a claimant may not commence an action against a subdivider or master developer for a constructional defect in an appurtenance constructed on behalf of the subdivider or master developer in a planned unit development, to the extent that the appurtenance was constructed by or through a licensed general contractor, unless:
The subdivider or master developer fails to provide to the claimant the name, address and telephone number of each contractor hired by the subdivider or master developer to construct the appurtenance within 30 days of the receipt by the subdivider or master developer of a request from the claimant for such information; or
After the claimant has made a good faith effort to obtain full recovery from the contractors hired by the subdivider or master developer to construct the appurtenance, the claimant has not obtained a full recovery.
All statutes of limitation or repose applicable to a claim governed by this section are tolled from the time the claimant notifies a contractor hired by the subdivider or master developer of the claim until the earlier of the date:
A court determines that the claimant cannot obtain a full recovery against those contractors; or
The claimant receives notice that those contractors are bankrupt, insolvent or dissolved.Ê Tolling pursuant to this subsection applies only to the subdivider or master developer. Notwithstanding any applicable statute of limitation or repose, the claimant may commence an action against the subdivider or master developer for the claim within 1 year after the end of the tolling described in this subsection.

Nothing in this section prohibits a person other than the claimant from commencing an action against a subdivider or master developer to enforce the person’s own rights.
The provisions of this section do not apply to a subdivider or master developer who acts as a general contractor or uses the subdivider’s or master developer’s license as a general contractor in the course of constructing the appurtenance that is the subject of the action.
