You forget -- the learned jurists and legislators make enough money to
afford a custom-built home designed by a legitimate architect or designer.
They can also afford a decent contractor who doesn't cut corners.

They're response to the above question would be something on the order of
"Get references and hire a better contractor."

It's the people who can only afford shoddily-built "speculation" homes built
by Jimbo Billy Bob's Konstruction Kompany that get screwed.

The best way to fix something that's broken is to require the people who
make the decisions *use* the thing that is broken.
