Verifier/Rater Invoice to Builder. Measurement and Verification Form completed by Verifier/Rater ALL submitted at same time to HBADE. (This is what is needed to fund rebate to buyer, and verification fees rebate to builder, up to $500 per home).

19 RULES AND TERMS – BUILDER PAPERWORK PROCESS Highlights of the Rules and Terms to Pay Attention to. 2. Note: Not all properties will qualify for this rebate program, based on location. Homes built in level 4 areas, as established by the Strategies for State Policy and Spending, do not qualify. The only exceptions to this ruling are those in level 4 which are in one or more of the following: If builders are unsure if the property meets one of these exceptions, please the names and addresses of the property to for determination.

20 RULES AND TERMS – BUILDER PAPERWORK PROCESS 4. Non Profit Builders are eligible to receive rebates through this program. No individual may apply for a rebate through this program more than once every 36 months. 5. Homes contracted for prior to Feb may not apply for the rebate. Funds are issued direct deposit to the home purchaser's/ Non profit builder account within 30 days after closing. The funds will only be issued upon receipt of acceptable documentation that the home has received the certification required for the corresponding rebate amount and that the property has settled (HUD 1). If a home goes to settlement prior to the builder applying and being approved for a specific rebate for that specific home, then that home does not qualify for the program. 6. The funds are taxable according to the IRS and 1099's may be issued in the name of the home buyer/Non profit builders reflecting their rebate.

21 RULES AND TERMS – BUILDER PAPERWORK PROCESS 7. Acceptance of a Rebate Application does not secure funds. Funds are reserved in the name of the home buyer /Non profit builder once satisfactory proof of funds to purchase or a non-contingent mortgage commitment and all required paperwork has been received from the builder and approved by the DE Green for Green program administrator. 8. Once reserved in the name of the home buyer/Non profit builder, the funds will only be issued upon receipt of acceptable documentation that the home has received the certification required for the corresponding rebate amount and that the property has settled (HUD 1). 9. Rebates will not be made available to the buyers at settlement

22 RULES AND TERMS – BUILDER PAPERWORK PROCESS 10. Once funds have been reserved for a buyer, the buyer has 6 months in which to go to closing and meet the program requirements to receive the rebate funds. Reservation of funds will expire at 6 months from the date of the commitment to reserve funds is issued from the DE Green for Green program administrator. In the event a buyer is unable to proceed to closing within 6 months of the initial funds reservation commitment by the program administrator, then a special fund reservation extension may be requested in writing to at minimum of 14 days prior to the 6 month expiration date. 11. If a home proceeds to close without a final green certification, the builder must notify the program administrator prior to closing that there will be a delay in receiving a final certificate.

23 RULES AND TERMS – BUILDER PAPERWORK PROCESS (11 continued) In order to secure the rebate past settlement, the builder is required to have the buyer sign a rebate waiver form outlining the risks. In the event of a settlement without a green certificate, the builder has 30 days from closing to complete the certification and send a final certificate to the program administrator, at which time funds will be released to the buyer, provided all other documentation has been received by the program. If a final certificate is not issued within 30 days of the final closing or by the time a temporary certificate expires, then the rebate reservation will be considered expired and funds will not be issued to the buyers for failure to meet program requirements, regardless of any other timelines set in this program. 12. The rules and guidelines are subject to change without notice. 13. The program may be terminated at any time, regardless of the funds balance or reserves amount.
