CONTRACT FOR PURCHASE
AND SALE OF REAL ESTATE
 
THIS CONTRACT FOR PURCHASE AND SALE OF REAL ESTATE (this "Contract" or “Agreement”) is entered into as of the last date of the signatures hereto (the "Effective Date"), by and between PCY HOLDINGS, LLC, a Colorado limited liability company ("Seller"), and RICHMOND AMERICAN HOMES OF COLORADO, INC., a Delaware corporation ("Purchaser").
 
WHEREAS, Seller is developing a master planned residential community to be known as "Sky Ranch" which is located in Arapahoe County, Colorado (“County”). The Sky Ranch master planned residential community may also be referred to herein as the "Development". The preliminary concept map for Phase A of the Development is depicted on Exhibit A attached hereto. The Development is being platted in several subdivision filings and developed in phases. Each subdivision filing is hereinafter sometimes respectively referred to as a “Filing” and collectively as “Filings”.
 
WHEREAS, Seller desires to sell to Purchaser, and Purchaser desires to purchase and obtain from Seller, approximately 190 platted single family detached residential lots (individually referred to as a "Lot" and collectively as the "Lots") in the Development which will be finished in accordance with this Contract and which will be used for the construction of single family residential dwellings upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Contract.
 
WHEREAS, Seller is selling platted residential lots within the Development to multiple homebuilders, including Purchaser. The Lots to be sold by Seller and acquired by Purchaser that are located within the Development shall be hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Property." The Lots will be conveyed at one or more Closings as more particularly provided herein and each such Closing may be referred to herein as a “Takedown.” The Lots which are to be conveyed at the first Closing shall be sometimes hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Takedown 1 Lots"; and, the Lots which are to be conveyed at the second Closing shall be sometimes hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Takedown 2 Lots".
 
WHEREAS, as of the Effective Date, the Lots have not been subdivided pursuant to a recorded final subdivision plat. The number and location of the Lots to be acquired by Purchaser are generally depicted on the preliminary concept map for Phase A of the Development attached hereto as Exhibit A (the "Lotting Diagram"). The precise number, dimension and location of the Lots will be established at the time the subdivision plat for such Lots is approved by the County and/or any other relevant governmental authority (collectively, the "Authorities" and each an “Authority”). As of the Effective Date, the parties anticipate that Purchaser will acquire approximately 190 Lots that are approximately 50 feet wide by approximately 110 feet deep for the construction of single family detached homes.
 
WHEREAS, following Purchaser’s acquisition of Lots, Seller will construct certain infrastructure improvements for the Lots as described on Exhibit C attached hereto (the "Finished Lot Improvements") pursuant to a lot development agreement executed by Seller and Purchaser in the form set forth on Exhibit F ("Lot Development Agreement").
 
 
1
 
 
1. Purchase and Sale. The Property shall be purchased at two (2) Closings. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Contract, Seller agrees to sell to Purchaser, and Purchaser agrees to purchase from Seller, on or before the dates set forth in Section 6(b) below, the Lots in each Takedown, as generally depicted on the Lotting Diagram and as follows:
 
At the Takedown 1 Closing (“First Closing”), one-hundred (100) Lots;
 
At the Takedown 2 Closing (“Second Closing”), ninety (90) Lots.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, the parties acknowledge and agree that the Parties shall negotiate during the Due Diligence Period to reach agreement on a mutually acceptable site plan for the Lots (“Final Lotting Diagram”) and that the exact number and location of the Lots within each Takedown are subject to adjustment based upon the approval by the Authorities of the Final Plat (as hereinafter defined) that includes the Lots to be acquired by Purchaser at each Takedown. The precise number, dimension (subject to the provisions of this Contract), location and legal description of the Lots will be established at the time the Final Plat for such Lots is approved by the County and/or any other Authority, and upon approval of each such Final Plat the parties shall execute an amendment to this Contract setting forth the legal description of those Lots included in the approved Final Plat.
 
2. Purchase Price. The purchase price to be paid by Purchaser to Seller for each Lot (the "Purchase Price") shall consist of the Initial Purchase Price (as hereinafter defined) and the Deferred Purchase Price (as hereinafter defined). The Purchase Price for each Lot shall be calculated as provided in the following Section 2(a) and shall be subject to adjustment as provided in Section 2(b) below:
 
(a) Purchase Price Payments. For each Lot the Purchase Price shall be the sum of the “Initial Purchase Price” of Fifteen Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($15,000.00) paid by Purchaser to Seller by wire transfer or other immediately available and collectible funds ("Good Funds"), and the “Deferred Purchase Price” of Fifty Four Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($54,000.00) paid by Purchaser to Seller for a total of Sixty Nine Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($69,000.00) per Lot (subject to adjustment as hereinafter provided in Section 2(b) of this Agreement). The Deferred Purchase Price for the Lots acquired by Purchaser at the First Closing shall be secured by a letter of credit delivered by Purchaser into escrow at the First Closing, and the Deferred Purchase Price for the Lots acquired by Purchaser at the Second Closing shall be secured by a letter of credit delivered by Purchaser into escrow at the Second Closing, as more particularly described in Section 5(c) below.
 
(b) Purchase Price Escalator. The portion of the Purchase Price of each Lot not paid at the First Closing will increase by an amount equal to the amount of simple interest that would accrue thereon for the period elapsing between the date that the First Closing occurs until the date such amount is paid, at a per annum rate equal to two and one-half percent (2.5%) (the “Escalator”). By way of example and for clarification purposes only, if the Initial Purchase Price of a Lot at the Closing of the Takedown 1 Lots is $15,000, then at a subsequent Closing occurring 12 months (365 days) following the date of the closing of the Takedown 1 Lots, the Purchase Price for a Lot at such subsequent Closing will be $15,375, which is calculated as follows: $15,000 + ($15,000 x ..025) = $15,375.

3. Payment of Purchase Price. The Purchase Price for each of the Lots, as determined pursuant to Section 2 above, shall be payable as follows:
 
(a) Earnest Money Deposit. Within three (3) business days following the Effective Date, Purchaser shall deliver to the Title Company (as defined in Section 4(a) hereof) an earnest money deposit in the amount of $100,000.00 (the “Initial Deposit”. At the end of the Due Diligence Period and within three (3) business days following the delivery of the Continuation Notice (as hereinafter defined), Purchaser shall deliver to the Title Company an additional $110,000 (the “Additional Deposit”). The Initial Deposit and the Additional Deposit and all interest earned thereon shall be referred to herein as the "Deposit." The Title Company will act as escrow agent and invest the Deposit in a federally insured institution at the highest money market rate available. The Deposit shall be paid in Good Funds. One-half of the Deposit will be applied to the Closing Purchase Price Payment for the Takedown 1 Lots and one-half of the Deposit will be applied to the Closing Purchase Price Payment for the Takedown 2 Lots. If this Contract is terminated prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period for any reason, the Initial Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser. If this Contract is terminated prior to the Deposit being fully applied to the Purchase Price at the last Closing, the unapplied portion of the Deposit shall be paid to Seller, except in the case of a termination of this Contract pursuant to a provision that expressly entitles Purchaser to a refund of the Deposit as provided elsewhere herein.
 
(b) Initial Purchase Price. That portion of the Purchase Price for each Lot that is identified as the Initial Purchase Price and calculated as provided in Section 2 above shall be paid by Purchaser to Seller in Good Funds at the Closing that is applicable to the Lot.
 
(c) Deferred Purchase Price. That portion of the Purchase Price for each Lot that is identified as the Deferred Purchase Price in Section 2 above is due and payable by Purchaser to Seller, as provided in and pursuant to the terms of the Lot Development Agreement (as hereinafter defined).
 
4. Seller’s Title
 
(a) Preliminary Title Commitment. Within ten (10) business days after the Effective Date, Seller shall furnish to Purchaser, at Seller’s expense, a current commitment for a Title Policy (as defined below) for the Property (the "Master Commitment") issued by Land Title Guarantee Company ("Title Company") and underwritten by First American Title Insurance Company, together with copies of the instruments listed in the schedule of exceptions in the Master Commitment. If the Master Commitment contains any exceptions from coverage which are unacceptable to Purchaser, then Purchaser shall object to the condition of the Master Commitment in writing within forty-five (45) days of Purchaser’s receipt of the Master Commitment together with copies of all documents constituting exceptions to title (the "Title Objections"). Upon receipt of the Title Objections, Seller may, at its option and at its sole cost and expense, clear the title to the Property of the Title Objections within twenty (20) days of receipt of the Title Objections. In the event Seller fails, or elects not to clear the title to the Property of the Title Objections on or before the date that is ten (10) days before the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, the Purchaser, as its sole remedy, may elect before the expiration of the Due Diligence Period either: (i) to terminate this Contract, in which event the Initial Deposit shall be promptly returned to Purchaser, Purchaser shall deliver to Seller all information and materials received by Purchaser from Seller pertaining to the Property and any non-confidential and non-proprietary information otherwise obtained by Purchaser pertaining to the Property, and thereafter the parties shall have no further rights or obligations under this Contract except as otherwise provided in Section 12(c) below; or (ii) to waive such objections and proceed with the transactions contemplated by this Contract, in which event Purchaser shall be deemed to have approved the title matters as to which its Title Objections have been waived. If Purchaser fails to provide the Title Objections prior to the expiration of the sixty (60) day period required by this Section 4(a), Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected to waive its objections as described in the preceding clause. If Purchaser fails to notify Seller of its election to terminate this Contract or waive it objections, Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected to waive its objections to any title matter that Seller has failed or elected not to cure. Seller shall release at or prior to the applicable Closing any monetary lien that Seller caused or created against the Property with respect to that portion of the Property to be acquired at a particular Closing other than non-delinquent real estate taxes and assessments and Permitted Exceptions, and such monetary liens shall not constitute Permitted Exceptions (as hereinafter defined). At each Closing, without the need for Purchaser to object to the same in Purchaser’s Title Objections, Seller shall execute and deliver the Title Company's standard form mechanic's lien affidavit (the “Lien Affidavit”), and to the extent required by the Title Company a commercially reasonable indemnity agreement (the “Title Company Indemnity”), in connection with the standard printed exception for liens arising against the Lots purchased at the Closing for work or materials ordered or contracted for by Seller, and any information regarding such work reasonably requested by Title Company, provided, however, if the Purchaser determines during the Due Diligence Period that the Title Company refuses or is unwilling to delete the standard printed exception for liens as part of extended coverage despite Seller’s offer to execute and deliver the Lien Affidavit and Title Company Indemnity, then Purchaser will have the right to terminate this Contract on or before the expiration of the Due Diligence Period whereupon the Deposit will be returned to Purchaser, or Purchaser may proceed with the Closing in which event the Title Policy will contain and the Lots will be conveyed subject to the standard printed exception for liens unless the Title Company thereafter agrees to delete such lien exception, however, the Purchaser has no further termination right if the Title Company does not agree to do so. Seller shall request that the Takedown Commitment (as hereinafter defined) provide for the deletion of the other standard printed exceptions from the Title Policy as part of extended coverage (provided that Seller's only obligation with respect thereto shall be to provide a copy of Seller’s existing survey ("Survey"), if any, of the land that contains the Lots, obtain and furnish a plat certification issued by a licensed surveyor, to execute the Title Company’s standard form seller-owner final affidavit and agreement as reasonably modified by Seller and as to Seller’s acts only if such affidavit is required by the Title Company for the purpose of deleting any exception for parties in possession (“Owner’s Affidavit”), and to execute the Title Company's Lien Affidavit and Title Company Indemnity with respect to Seller's acts, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Seller). Seller has no obligation to provide a new Survey or to update any existing Survey.

(b) Subsequently Disclosed Exceptions. Not less than fifteen (15) days prior to the applicable Closing, Purchaser may request that the Title Company issue an updated title commitment for that portion of the Property to be acquired at such Closing (each a "Takedown Commitment"), together with copies of any additional instruments listed in the schedule of exceptions which are not reflected in the Master Commitment furnished pursuant to Section 4(a) above or in any prior Takedown Commitment. Additional items disclosed by a Takedown Commitment or by an amendment to the Master Commitment that affect title to the subject Property are referred to as “New Exceptions”. New Exceptions affecting title to the subject Property that are allowed by the provisions of this Contract are referred to as “Permissible New Exceptions” and all other New Exceptions are referred to as “Other New Exceptions”. Purchaser has no right to object to any Permissible New Exception. Other New Exceptions which do not materially adversely affect title, as reasonably determined by Purchaser, or use of a Lot shall also be Permissible New Exceptions. Purchaser shall have a period of seven (7) days from the date of its receipt of such Takedown Commitment or amendment to the Master Commitment and a copy of the New Exceptions (the "New Exception Review Period") to review and to approve or disapprove any Other New Exceptions. If the Other New Exception is unacceptable to Purchaser, Purchaser shall object to the Other New Exception in writing within seven (7) days from the date of Purchaser’s receipt of the Takedown Commitment, together with a copy of the New Exceptions (the "New Exception Objection"). Upon receipt of the New Exception Objection, Seller shall cure the New Exception Objection (by deletion, insuring over or endorsement) to the extent that such Other New Exception was caused or created by Seller and is not otherwise permitted by this Contract ("Seller Caused Exception"). If the New Exception Objection relates to an Other New Exception that was not caused by Seller (“Non-Seller Caused Exception”), Seller may, at its sole discretion, cure the New Exception Objection, within fifteen (15) days of receipt of the New Exception Objection (“Seller Cure Period”) and the applicable Closing Date will be extended to accommodate the Seller Cure Period. In the event Seller fails, or elects not to cure a Non-Seller Caused Exception within such fifteen (15) day period, the Purchaser, as its sole remedy, may elect within five (5) days after the end of the Seller Cure Period either: (i) to terminate this Contract as to the Lots affected by such New Exception, in which event the prorata portion of the unapplied Deposit for such Lots shall be refunded to Purchaser and the parties shall have no further rights or obligations under this Contract as to such Lots; or (ii) to waive such objection and proceed with the acquisition of the Lots in such Takedown, in which event Purchaser shall be deemed to have approved the New Exception. If Purchaser fails to notify Seller of its election to terminate this Contract as to the applicable Lots in accordance with the foregoing sentences within five (5) days after the expiration of the Seller Cure Period (i) Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected to waive its objections as described in the preceding sentences (ii), and all such items shall be deemed to be Permitted Exceptions.

(c) Permitted Exceptions; Additional Easements. Seller shall convey title to the Lots included in each Takedown of the Property to Purchaser at the Closing for such Takedown subject to the Permitted Exceptions described in Section 9 hereof. Prior to each such Closing, Seller shall have the right, subject to the limitations set forth below and in Exhibit B, to utilize the reservation of rights set forth on Exhibit B hereof, to convey additional easements as Permissible New Exceptions to utility and cable service providers, governmental or quasi-governmental Authorities, metropolitan, water and sanitation districts, homeowners associations or property owners associations or other entities that serve the Development or adjacent property for construction of utilities and other facilities to support the Development or such adjacent property, including but not limited to sanitary sewer, water lines, electric, cable, broad-band and telephone transmission, storm drainage and construction access easements across the Property not yet acquired by Purchaser, allowing Seller or its assignees the right to install and maintain sanitary sewer, water lines, cable television, broad-band, electric, telephone and other utilities on the Property and on the adjacent property owned by Seller and/or its affiliates, and further, to accommodate storm drainage from the adjacent property. Such easements shall require the restoration of any surface damage or disturbance caused by the exercise of such easements, shall not be located within the building envelope of any Lot, shall not materially detract from the value, use or enjoyment of (i) the Lots affected or the remaining portion of the Property on which such easements are to be located, or (ii) any adjoining property of Purchaser.
 
5
 
 
(d) Master Covenants. Prior to the Takedown 1 Closing, Seller shall, subject to the limitations set forth below, prepare covenants, conditions and restrictions for the Development or the portion thereof in which the Property is located (the "Master Declaration") incorporating architectural and design standards and guidelines, use limitations and restrictions and which may establish an owners association or provide that the District shall administer the Master Declaration, among other matters, together with such supplemental declarations as may have been or may be recorded to subject the Property to the provisions of the Master Declaration (collectively, the "Master Covenants"). Seller shall provide a draft of the Master Covenants in substantially the form to be recorded to Purchaser for Purchaser’s review within thirty (30) days after the Effective Date. If the Master Covenants contain any provisions which are unacceptable to Purchaser in Purchaser’s sole discretion, Purchaser shall object to such provisions with particularity in writing within ten (10) days of receipt of the draft Master Covenants. Upon receipt of such objection, Seller may, at its option, modify the objectionable provisions of the Master Covenants within ten (10) days of receipt of such objection from Purchaser. In the event Seller fails or elects in its discretion not to modify the objectionable provisions of the Master Covenants within such ten (10) day period, Purchaser shall have the right as its sole remedy to elect either: (i) to terminate this Contract, in which event the Initial Deposit shall be promptly returned to Purchaser, Purchaser shall deliver to Seller all information and materials received by Purchaser from Seller pertaining to the Property and any non-confidential and non-proprietary information otherwise obtained by Purchaser pertaining to the Property, and thereafter the parties shall have no further rights or obligations under this Contract except as otherwise provided in Section 12(c) below; or (ii) to waive any objections to the Master Covenants and proceed with the transactions contemplated by this Contract, in which event Purchaser shall be deemed to have approved the Master Covenants as to which its objections have been waived. If Purchaser fails to provide written notice to Seller of its objection to the Master Covenants within ten (10) days of receipt of the draft Master Covenants as required by this Section 4(d), Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected to waive its objections as described in the preceding clause and the Master Covenants shall be deemed to be Permitted Exceptions. Seller shall be permitted to revise the Master Covenants at any time before the First initial Closing under this Contract without the consent of Purchaser, provided that any such revisions have no material adverse effect on the Lots acquired or to be acquired by Purchaser.
 
(e) Title Policy. Within a reasonable time after each Closing, Seller, at its expense, shall cause the Title Company to deliver a Form 2006 ALTA extended coverage owner’s policy of title insurance (“Title Policy”), insuring Purchaser’s title to the Property conveyed at such Closing, pursuant to the applicable Takedown Commitment and subject only to the Permitted Exceptions, together with such endorsements as Purchaser may request and which the Title Company agrees to issue during the Due Diligence Period. Such Title Policy shall include extended coverage subject to the provisions of Section 4(a) hereof. Seller shall pay the premium for the basic policy at such Closing and Purchaser shall pay any additional premium for extended coverage if available. The Title Policy shall provide insurance in an amount equal to the Purchase Price for all Lots purchased at such Closing. At each Closing, Seller shall offer to execute and deliver a Lien Affidavit and an Owner’s Affidavit, and shall obtain and furnish a plat certification issued by a licensed surveyor, both as provided in Section 4(a) above. Purchaser shall pay any fees charged by the Title Company to delete the standard pre-printed exceptions. Purchaser shall pay for the premiums for any endorsements requested by Purchaser, except that Seller shall pay for any endorsements that Seller agrees to provide in order to cure a Title Objection.

Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to have the Entitlements for each Takedown, respectively, to be approved by the Authorities and recorded as necessary in the County Records with applicable governmental or third-party appeal or challenge periods applicable to an approval decision of the Board of Commissioners or Planning Commission having expired without any appeal then-pending (“Final Approval”). Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain Final Approval of the Entitlements for the Takedown 1 Lots on or before nine (9) months after the expiration of the Diligence Period (or any extensions thereof). If Final Approval of the Entitlements for the Takedown 1 Lots has not been achieved as aforesaid on or before nine (9) months after the expiration of the Diligence Period (or any extensions thereof), then Seller, in its discretion, shall have the right to extend the date for obtaining such Final Approval for a period not to exceed six (6) months after the initial nine (9) month period. If Seller extends the time period for obtaining such Final Approval for the Takedown 1 Lots, then during such extended time period Seller shall continue to use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain Final Approval of such Entitlements, and failing which, Seller shall not be in default of its obligations under this Contract, but the Purchaser may as its sole remedy hereunder terminate this Contract as to such Takedown and any remaining Takedowns by written notice to Seller, delivered within ten (10) business days after the end of the time period as extended for obtaining such Final Approval, in which case each party shall thereupon be relieved of all further obligations and liabilities under this Contract, except as otherwise provided herein, and the Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser. Failure to give notice as described above shall be an irrevocable waiver of Purchaser’s right to terminate this Contract due to Seller’s failure to obtain Final Approval of the Entitlements for the Takedown 1 Lots. The timing for Final Approval of the Entitlements for Takedowns after Takedown 1 is as set forth in Section 6(b)(i) hereof. During the approval process, Seller shall keep Purchaser reasonably informed of the process and the anticipated results therefrom.

(iii) Lot Minimums for each Takedown. The Final Plat(s) for the Property and the Lots are anticipated to be in a form which is substantially consistent, with the Final Lotting Diagram, subject to changes made necessary by the Authorities and/or final engineering decisions which are necessary to properly engineer, design, and install the improvements in accordance with the requirements of the County and other applicable Authorities.
 
(iv) Recordation of Final Plat. At or before each Closing, Seller shall have caused to be recorded the Final Plat that includes the Lots that are to be purchased at that Closing.

Seller shall cause Rangeview and/or the District to install and construct in a commercially reasonable manner, and diligently pursue to substantial completion the offsite infrastructure improvements that are identified and described on Exhibit D attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference (collectively, the "Offsite Infrastructure Improvements"). The Offsite Infrastructure Improvements will be completed in a good, workmanlike and lien-free manner, in accordance with the CDs, applicable laws, codes, regulations and governmental requirements for the Development and the requirements of this Agreement. Seller shall or shall cause Rangeview and/or the District, using commercially reasonable efforts, to have the Offsite Infrastructure Improvements Substantially Complete in accordance with the Schedule set forth on Exhibit D, subject to Force Majeure, which schedule will substantially conform to the timing set forth in clause (10) of Section 5(c)(ii) below. Rangeview will be constructing a new wastewater reclamation facility (“WWRF”) for the Development. Seller shall provide evidence to Purchaser that Rangeview has received the necessary authorizations from the Water Quality Control Division of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and from the County to construct the WWRF, and has awarded a contract for the construction of the WWRF. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Purchaser specifically acknowledges and agrees that the WWRF currently planned as an Offsite Infrastructure Improvement will not be Substantially Complete on or before the date that Purchaser obtains its first building permit for a Lot. Therefore, Seller shall provide, at Seller’s sole cost, a temporary alternative service for the processing of wastewater sufficient for the issuance of building permits and certificates of occupancy consisting of two sequential batch reactor basins with a combined volume of 500,0000 gallons, along with appurtenant facilities to mitigate the development of odors, that Rangeview’s engineer will certify as having been constructed in accordance with approved plans and specifications (the “Alternative Service”). The Alternative Service shall be operational on the date that Purchaser obtains its first building permit for a Lot, and shall continue in operation until such time as the WWRF is Substantially Complete. Funding for the Alternative Service shall be included in an Offsite Infrastructure Escrow Agreement. Seller will give Purchaser written notice (“Completion Notice”) when each Offsite Infrastructure Improvement is Substantially Complete. During the construction process, Seller shall keep Purchaser reasonably informed of the progress of the construction of the Offsite Infrastructure. The term "Substantially Complete" or "Substantial Completion" means that the improvements have been completed in accordance with the CD’s subject to certain limitations and other provisions set forth in Section 4.5.1 of the Lot Development Agreement. Seller and/or Rangeview shall be responsible for obtaining final acceptance by the County and any other applicable Authority having jurisdiction in accordance with the requirements of the County or other Authority. As an addition to Purchaser’s Condition Precedent, Seller or Rangeview shall on or before the First Closing (i) have substantially completed the CDs for the Offsite Infrastructure Improvements; (ii) have obtained development permits for the Offsite Infrastructure Improvements; (iii) have let the contracts for installation of the Offsite Infrastructure Improvements and (iv) have deposited funds into a controlled disbursement account pursuant to one or more agreements (each an “Offsite Infrastructure Escrow Agreement” and in the plural “Offsite Infrastructure Escrow Agreements”) equal to the contracted cost to Substantially Complete the Offsite Infrastructure Improvements which Seller and/or Rangeview shall have the right to draw upon to pay for such Offsite Infrastructure Improvements as constructed. The form of the Offsite Infrastructure Escrow Agreement shall be subject to Purchaser’s review and approval during the Due Diligence Period and if Purchaser is not satisfied with such agreement for any reason, then Purchaser’s sole remedy shall be to terminate this Contract under Section 10(a) and if Purchaser does not so terminate this Contract then the Offsite Infrastructure Escrow Agreement(s) shall be deemed approved. At Closing the Purchaser shall become a party by joinder to the Offsite Infrastructure Escrow Agreements solely with respect to remedies for a Seller default in timely completing the Offsite Infrastructure Improvements (Seller and Purchaser agree that the Offsite Infrastructure Escrow Agreement will provide Purchaser the first right to step-in and complete the Off-site Infrastructure Improvements. In the event that Seller does not complete any Offsite Infrastructure Improvements by the required date (subject to Force Majeure), the Purchaser and all other purchasers of Lots in the Development shall have the right as their remedy to withdraw the necessary funds out of such escrow to cause completion of the applicable Offsite Infrastructure Improvements. Seller shall deliver such Offsite Infrastructure Escrow Agreements to Purchaser within 15 days following the Effective Date. Seller is not obligated to install any amenities related to the Community Park as part of the Offsite Infrastructure or the Finished Lot Improvements, but Seller and Purchaser agree to use good faith efforts during the Due Diligence Period to establish the timing, financing other relevant details pertaining to the installation of amenities on the Community Park.

The form of the Joint Improvements Memorandum shall be agreed upon during the Inspection Period and attached to the Lot Development Agreement as Exhibit J thereto. If such Joint Improvements Memorandum is not agreed upon during the Due Diligence Period, then the Purchaser shall as its sole remedy, has the right to terminate the Contract prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, in which event the Initial Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser as provided in Section 10(a) hereof.

(iii) After obtaining Final Approval of all necessary Entitlements for the applicable Lots, Seller acting as the constructing party under the Lot Development Agreement shall commence and diligently pursue completion or cause to be completed for the Lots being purchased and acquired by Purchaser at each Closing, subject to Force Majeure, the Finished Lot Improvements in accordance with the phasing, provisions and schedules of the Lot Development Agreement and all applicable laws, codes, regulations and governmental requirements for the Lots.  Seller will notify Purchaser when each phase of the Finished Lot Improvements have been Substantially Completed. Seller’s failure to comply with the foregoing covenant shall not constitute a default hereunder unless and until such failure shall constitute an event of default (as defined in the Lot Development Agreement) under the Lot Development Agreement.
 
(iv) In order to secure Purchaser’s obligation following each Closing to pay the Deferred Purchase Price in accordance with the terms of this Contract and the payment schedule set forth in the Lot Development Agreement as described in Section 5(c) of this Contract, at each Closing, Purchaser shall deliver to Title Company, acting as escrow agent, a letter of credit issued by HomeAmerican Mortgage Corporation in the form attached hereto as Exhibit G (the “Letter of Credit”) and in an amount equal to the sum of the Deferred Purchase Price for all of the Lots acquired by Purchaser at such Closing, plus the estimated Escalator thereon in an amount equal to $1,350.00 per Lot acquired at the Second Closing with respect to the Letter of Credit delivered at the Second Closing. Title Company shall hold and maintain the Letter of Credit pursuant to this Agreement in an escrow account established by Title Company for the benefit of Seller and Purchaser. The Letter of Credit for each Closing shall remain in place until the final payment of the Deferred Purchase Price applicable to such Closing has been made to the Seller following Substantial Completion of the Finished Lot Improvements which serve the Lots acquired by Purchaser at such Closing. If the Letter of Credit is scheduled to expire prior to the Substantial Completion of all of such Lots, and Purchaser has not renewed the Letter of Credit at least fifteen (15) days prior to the expiration date thereof, Title Company is authorized and directed to draw down the full amount of the Letter of Credit and deposit such funds in escrow to be used solely for the payment of any unpaid Deferred Purchase Price. The Letter of Credit may provide that it shall be reduced from time to time to the extent of payments of the Deferred Purchase Price in Good Funds are made by Purchaser for Finished Lot Improvements in accordance with the terms, including the payment schedule, set forth in the Lot Development Agreement and Section 5(c) of this Agreement.

Failure by Purchaser to pay any portion of the Deferred Purchase Price when the same shall become due and payable, provided that at such failure continues for a period of ten days after the delivery of written notice thereof from Seller to Purchaser, shall entitle Seller to enforce the collection of the delinquent Deferred Purchase Price by drawing upon the Letter of Credit or having the Title Company draw upon the Letter of Credit, and in either event the funds so drawn shall be paid to Seller as payment of any unpaid Deferred Purchase Price and such failure to pay shall be deemed cured. If Seller or Title Company is unable to draw upon the Letter of Credit, Seller may protect and enforce its rights under this Agreement pertaining to payment of the Deferred Purchase Price by (i) such suit, action, or special proceedings as Seller shall deem appropriate, including, without limitation, any proceedings for the specific performance of any covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement and the Lot Development Agreement or the enforcement of any other appropriate legal or equitable remedy, or for the recovery of actual damages (excluding consequential, punitive damages or similar damages) caused by Purchaser’s failure to pay the Deferred Purchase Price, including reasonable attorneys' fees, and (ii) enforcing Seller’s lien rights under the Lot Development Agreement. Seller’s remedies are non-exclusive.

("MDC") or MDC’s Asset Management Committee (“AMC Approval”), to issue a Continuation Notice for the transaction contemplated hereunder, and if Purchaser delivers a Continuation Notice or otherwise elects not to terminate this Agreement on or before the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, then Purchaser will be deemed to have obtained such approval and satisfied this condition to Builder’s obligation to Close;
 
(b) Approval of Property. If Purchaser gives a Continuation Notice on or before the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, except as otherwise provided in this Section 10, Purchaser shall be deemed to have approved the Property, the Development and the feasibility of Purchaser’s intended uses of the Lots (subject to the terms and conditions of Section 5(b) and Section 5(c) hereof). Such approval shall be deemed to include, but shall not be limited to, Purchaser’s approval of the following as to the Property:
 
(i) The ability of applicable utility companies to provide utility services to the Property, including the quality, sizing and cost of such services;
 
17
 
 
(ii) The soil and environmental conditions of the Property;
 
(iii) All Seller Documents delivered to Purchaser pursuant to this Contract;
 
(iv) All of the Permitted Exceptions;
 
(v) The financial condition and other factors relevant to the operation of the District;
 
(vi) Any property owners’ association to be established pursuant to the terms of the Master Covenants; and
 
(vii) Fitness for Purchaser’s intended use, accessibility of roads, and the condition and suitability for improvement and sale of the Lots, subject to Seller’s obligations under this Contract.
 
(c) Radon. Purchaser acknowledges that radon gas and naturally occurring radioactive materials (“NORM”) each naturally occurs in many locations in Colorado. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (the "EPA") have detected elevated levels of naturally occurring radon gas in residential structures in many areas of Colorado, including the County and all of the other counties along the front range of Colorado. The EPA has raised concerns with respect to adverse effects on human health from long-term exposure to high levels of radon and recommends that radon levels be tested in all Residences. Purchaser acknowledges that Seller neither claims nor possesses any special expertise in the measurement or reduction of radon or NORM. Purchaser further acknowledges that Seller has not undertaken any evaluation of the presence or risks of radon or NORM with respect to the Property nor has it made any representation or given any other advice to Purchaser as to acceptable levels or possible health hazards of radon and NORM. SELLER HAS MADE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, CONCERNING THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF RADON, NORM OR OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTANTS WITHIN THE PROPERTY OR THE RESIDENCES TO BE CONSTRUCTED ON THE LOTS OR THE SOILS BENEATH OR ADJACENT TO THE PROPERTY OR THE RESIDENCES TO BE CONSTRUCTED ON THE LOTS PRIOR TO, ON OR AFTER THE CLOSING DATE. Purchaser, on behalf of itself and its successors and assigns, hereby releases the Seller from any and all liability and claims with respect to radon gas. Every home sales contract entered in to by Purchaser with respect to subsequent sales of Lots shall include any disclosures with respect to radon as required by applicable Colorado law.
 
 
18
 
 
(d) Soils. Purchaser acknowledges that soils within the State of Colorado consist of both expansive soils and low-density soils, and certain areas contain potential heaving bedrock associated with expansive, steeply dipping bedrock, which will adversely affect the integrity of a dwelling unit constructed on a Lot if the dwelling unit and the Lot on which it is constructed are not properly maintained.  Expansive soils contain clay mineral, which have the characteristic of changing volume with the addition or subtraction of moisture, thereby resulting in swelling and/or shrinking soils.  The addition of moisture to low-density soils causes a realignment of soil grains, thereby resulting in consolidation and/or collapse of the soils.  Purchaser agrees that it shall obtain a current geotechnical report for the Property and an individual lot soils report for each Lot containing design recommendations from a licensed geotechnical engineer for all structures to be placed upon the Lot. Purchaser shall require all homes to have engineered footing and foundations consistent with results of the individual lot soils report for each Lot and shall take reasonable action as shall be necessary to ensure that the homes to be constructed upon the Lots shall be done in accordance with proper design and construction techniques. Purchaser shall also provide a copy of the geotechnical report for the Property and the individual lot soils report for each Lot to Seller within seven (7) days after Seller’s request for the same, and agrees in the event that this Contract terminates for any reason Purchaser shall use reasonable efforts to assign, without liability or recourse to Purchaser, at Seller’s request, the geotechnical report for the Property and the individual lot soils report for each Lot to any subsequent homebuilder who enters into a purchase and sale agreement with Seller to purchase all of a portion of the Lots. SELLER HAS MADE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, CONCERNING THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF EXPANSIVE SOILS, LOW-DENSITY SOILS OR DIPPING BEDROCK UPON THE PROPERTY AND PURCHASER SHALL UNDERTAKE SUCH INVESTIGATION AS SHALL BE REASONABLE AND PRUDENT TO DETERMINE THE EXISTENCE OF THE SAME. Purchaser shall provide all disclosures required by C.R.S. Section 6-6.5-101 in every home sales contract entered in to by Purchaser with respect to subsequent sales of a Lot to a homebuyer. Purchaser, on behalf of itself and its successors and assigns, hereby releases the Seller from any and all liability and claims with respect to expansive and low-density soils and dipping bedrock located within the Property.
 
(e)  Over Excavation. The Finished Lot Improvements required for each Lot do not include any “over excavation” or comparable preparation or mitigation of the soil (the “Overex”) on the Property and Purchaser shall have sole responsibility at Purchaser’s sole expense with respect to the Overex and shall have the right (pursuant to a license agreement to be provided by Seller) to enter such Lots for the purposes of performing the Overex; provided, however, that such entry shall be performed in a manner that does not materially interfere with or result in a material delay or an increase in the costs or any expenses in the construction of the Finish Lot Improvements, and provided further that Purchaser shall promptly repair any portion of the Lots and adjacent property that is materially damaged by Purchaser or its agents, designees, employees, contractors, or subcontractors in performing the Overex. Purchaser shall obtain, at its cost, a current geotechnical report for the Property and an individual lot soils report for each Lot containing design recommendations from a licensed geotechnical engineer for all structures to be placed upon the Lot (“Purchaser’s Geotechnical Reports”) shall not rely upon any geotechnical or soils report furnished by Seller, and Seller shall have no responsibility or liability with respect to the Overex, Purchaser’s Geotechnical Reports or any matters related thereto. The parties shall reasonably cooperate in coordinating Purchaser’s completion of the Overex so that the Overex can be properly sequenced with Seller’s completion of the Finished Lot Improvements. In no event shall the Seller be liable to Purchaser for any delay or costs or damages incurred by Purchaser with respect to such Overex, even if caused by any delay in installation of Finished Lot Improvements sequenced ahead of the Overex. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT SELLER IS NOT PERFORMING ANY OVER-EXCAVATION OF THE LOTS AND THAT SELLER SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO OR ARISING OUT OF ANY OVER-EXCAVATION OF THE LOTS OR EXPANSIVE SOILS PRESENT ON THE LOTS AND SELLER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY OVER-EXCAVATION OF THE LOTS AND EXPANSIVE SOILS PRESENT ON THE LOTS.

Purchaser shall promptly refill holes dug and otherwise repair any damage to the Property as a result of its activities. Purchaser and its agents shall not have the right to conduct any invasive testing (e.g., borings, drilling, soil/water sampling, etc.), except standard geotech preliminary investigation, on the Lots, including, without limitation, any so-called "Phase II" environmental testing, without first obtaining Seller's written consent (and providing Seller at least seventy-two (72) hours' prior written notice), which consent may be withheld by Seller in its reasonable discretion and shall be subject to any terms and conditions imposed by Seller in its reasonable discretion. In the event that Purchaser fails to obtain Seller's written consent prior to any invasive testing, in addition to and without limiting any other obligations Purchaser may have under this Section, Purchaser shall be fully responsible and liable for all costs of remediation with respect to any materials disturbed in any manner that requires remediation or that are removed in connection with such invasive testing and including, but not limited to, costs for disposal of materials removed during any invasive testing.

(i) Purchaser shall submit to Seller the Purchaser’s elevations, floor plans, typical landscape plans, exterior color palettes for homes and other buildings, structures and improvements to be located on the Lots (“House Plans”) within 20 days following the Effective Date of this Contract. Seller will review the House Plans and Seller shall deliver notice to Purchaser of the Seller’s preliminary approval or disapproval of the House Plans within ten (10) business days after receipt of the House Plans, with such approval not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. If Seller fails to so notify Purchaser of preliminary approval or disapproval within such 10-business day period, the Purchaser shall provide Seller with written notice of the same and Seller shall notify Purchaser within three (3) business days of its approval of disapproval. If Seller fails to approve or disapprove within such 3-business day period, the House Plans shall be deemed preliminarily approved. In the event of disapproval, Purchaser shall revise and resubmit the House Plans to the Seller for reconsideration, addressing the matters disapproved by the Seller, and the procedure set forth above shall be repeated until the House Plans are approved by the Seller. Seller will use reasonable efforts to confirm that Purchaser’s House Plans, as approved by Seller, are compatible with the SDP Criteria. Upon County approval of the SDP, Seller will conduct a second review of the House Plans for compliance and compatibility with the SDP Criteria. If the House Plans do not materially comply with the County-approved SDP Criteria applicable to the Property, Seller will notify Purchaser. If Purchaser and Seller are unable to agree upon mutually acceptable revisions to the House Plans so that they comply with the SDP Criteria, then Purchaser may terminate this Contract, in which event the Deposit shall be promptly returned to Purchaser, Purchaser shall deliver to Seller all information and materials received by Purchaser from Seller pertaining to the Property and any non-confidential and non-proprietary information otherwise obtained by Purchaser pertaining to the Property, and thereafter the parties shall have no further rights or obligations under this Contract except those that expressly survive termination of this Contract. After Seller approves the Purchaser’s House Plans, and before Purchaser commences construction of homes on the Lots, Purchaser shall submit to Seller any material changes in the approved House Plans. Seller shall review the material changes for general consistency and compatibility with the standards and criteria set forth in the SDP Criteria and the Master Covenants and if Seller approves such changes, Seller shall notify Purchaser within ten (10) business days of its approval, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.
 
(ii) Purchaser shall obtain Seller approval of House Plans before commencing construction on a Lot. Purchaser shall perform all construction, development and landscaping in accordance with the approved House Plans and in conformity with the Master Covenants and SDP Criteria and all other requirements, rules, regulations of any local jurisdictional authority. Purchaser and Seller acknowledge that the County will not conduct architectural review nor issue approval of Purchaser’s house plans, but rather requires the building permit applicant to comply with the SDP Criteria. Seller’s approval of Purchaser’s House Plans is only intended as a review for compatibility with other residential construction in the Development and the SDP Criteria and does not constitute a representation or warranty that Purchaser’s House Plans comply with SDP Criteria and Purchaser shall be responsible for confirming such compliance.

(e) Disclosures to Homebuyers. Purchaser shall include in each contract for the sale of any Home constructed by Purchaser in the Development all disclosures required by applicable laws, including, but not limited to the Special District Disclosure, Common Interest Community Disclosure, Mineral Disclosure and Source of Potable Water Disclosure, and any other disclosure that applicable laws require to be made to each homebuyer regarding expansive/low-density soils, radon and other matters (“Homebuyer Disclosures”). Purchaser shall furnish to Seller upon request a copy of Purchaser’s disclosures to homebuyers which includes the Homebuyer Disclosures.
 
13. Force Majeure. A delay in or failure to perform any obligations required of Seller or Purchaser under this Contract shall not constitute a default to the extent such delay or failure is caused by Force Majeure and all times for performance shall be extended by the number of days of Force Majeure. "Force Majeure" shall be limited to acts of God, war, terrorism, fire, flood, earthquake, hurricane, weather conditions, strike, delay or unavailability of labor or materials, delay or unavailability of utilities, delays in obtaining governmental approvals to the extent not caused by the party seeking approval, moratoria, injunctions, orders or directives of any court or governmental body, or other actions of third parties (but not including financial inability) which, despite the exercise of reasonable diligence, the party required to perform is unable to prevent, avoid or remove. Force Majeure does not apply to the failure of a party to make a payment when due and payable under the terms of this Contract.
 
14. Cooperation. Purchaser shall reasonably cooperate with and require its agents, employees, subcontractors and other representatives to cooperate with all other parties involved in construction within the Development, including, where applicable, the granting of a nonexclusive license to enter upon the Property conveyed to Purchaser. Purchaser shall execute any and all documentation reasonably required by Seller or the Authorities to effectuate any desired modification or change in connection with Seller’s activities in the Development including, without limitation, amendments or restatements of the Master Covenants, or any Final Plat; provided, however, Purchaser shall not be obligated to execute any such documentation if, in Purchaser’s reasonable judgment, it will materially adversely affect the fair market value of the Property or Purchaser’s ability to construct or to sell its proposed homes within the Property, or if in Purchaser’s reasonable judgment, it will materially increase the cost of such construction, interfere with or delay such construction.
  
15. Fees. Subject to the provisions of Sections 16 and 17 below:
 
(a) FHA/VA. Seller shall not be required to obtain any approvals pursuant to FHA, VA or other governmental programs relating to the Lots or the financing of improvements thereon.
 
(b) Utility Company Refunds. Any refunds from utility providers relating to construction deposits for the Property shall be the exclusive property of Seller. Purchaser shall cooperate with Seller in turning over any such funds and directing those funds to Seller.
 
16. Water and Sewer Taps; Fees; and District Matters.
 
28
 
 
(a) Rangeview Metropolitan District. The water and sewer service provider for the Lots is the Rangeview Metropolitan District (“Rangeview”) and Purchaser shall be required to purchase water and sewer taps for the Lots from Rangeview. During the Due Diligence Period, Purchaser shall negotiate in good faith to reach agreement with Rangeview on terms and provisions of a Tap Purchase Agreement (the "Tap Purchase Agreement") in which Rangeview agrees to sell to Purchaser, and Purchaser agrees to purchase from Rangeview, a water and sewer tap for each Lot in accordance with an agreed-upon purchase schedule, but in no event later than the issuance of a building permit for a Lot. If Rangeview and Purchaser agree upon a Tap Purchase Agreement before the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, they shall prepare and execute an amendment to this Contract to set forth and attach to this Contract the agreed-upon Tap Purchase Agreement and execute the Tap Purchase Agreement on or before the date of the First Closing. If Rangeview and Purchaser are unable to agree on a Tap Purchase Agreement before the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, the Initial Deposit shall be promptly returned to Purchaser, Purchaser shall deliver to Seller all information and materials received by Purchaser from Seller pertaining to the Property and any non-confidential and non-proprietary information otherwise obtained by Purchaser pertaining to the Property, and thereafter the parties shall have no further rights or obligations under this Contract except as otherwise provided in Section 24 below. The combined cost to purchase a water tap and sewer will be dependent on Lot size, house square footage, number of floors, driveway lanes, outdoor irrigated square footage, and xeriscape square footage. For example, based on Rangeview’s rates and charges as of the Effective Date, a 5,500 square foot lot with a 2,400 square foot house 2 story 2 car garage with 1,500 square feet of grass would have a computed water/sewer tap fee of $25,500.
 
(b) Sky Ranch Metropolitan District No. 1. The Property is included within the boundaries of the Sky Ranch Metropolitan District No. 1 (“District”). Persons affiliated with Seller have been elected or appointed to the board of directors (“Board”) of the District and Rangeview and serve in that capacity. Purchaser shall not qualify any persons affiliated with Purchaser as its representative to serve on the Board of the District or Rangeview and this prohibition shall survive the Closing and delivery of deeds hereunder until no person affiliated with Seller serves on the Board. The District has been formed for purposes that include, but are not limited to financing, owning, maintaining and/or managing certain tracts and infrastructure improvements (“District Improvements”) to serve the Development, including the Lots. Purchaser acknowledges that: (i) the construction of District Improvements shall be without compensation or reimbursement to Purchaser; and (ii) any reimbursements, credits, payments, or other amounts payable by the District or Rangeview on account of the construction of District Improvements or any other matters related thereto (“Metro District Payments”) shall remain the property of the Seller and shall not be conveyed to or otherwise be claimed by Purchaser. Upon request of Seller, the District or Rangeview, Purchaser will execute any and all documents that may be reasonably required to confirm Purchaser’s waiver of any right to Metro District Payments. The provisions of this Section are material in determining the Purchase Price, and the Purchase Price would have been higher but for the provisions of this Section. This Section shall survive Closing .
 
(c) Fees.
 
(i) Seller shall pay any and all of the following to the extent imposed by any Authority in connection with the Property conveyed to Purchaser: (i) any parks and recreation fees (including park dedication requirements and/or cash-in-lieu payments related to the Property as part of the platting thereof); (ii) drainage fees; and (iii) fees for payment-in-lieu of school land dedications.
 
29
 
 
(ii) Following Closing, Purchaser shall pay all costs and expenses for all water meter fees, sewer fees, connection fees, facility fees or assessments, PIF fees, building and other permit costs, and any other costs or fees that may be imposed by the District, Rangeview or any Authority relating to the construction, use or occupancy of the homes to be constructed on the Lots. Without limiting the foregoing, and except for the fees to be paid by Seller pursuant to Section 16(c)(i) above, Purchaser shall pay any and all of the following to the extent imposed in connection with the Property conveyed to Purchaser: (i) any infrastructure (facility) fee, including, without limitation, any transportation/road fee, which may be imposed either by the County, the District or other Authority; (ii) any impact fees and payment-in-lieu of land dedication fees imposed for roads or other facilities that are payable at issuance of a building permit for a home constructed on a Lot; and (iii) any excise fees.
 
(iii) As of the Effective Date, the District does not levy a system development fee (“SDF”) against property within the District. If the District at any time before a Closing adopts a SDF, then at the Closing the Purchaser shall pay the District’s SDF applicable to the Lots acquired at such Closing. In order to offset Purchaser’s payment of the District’s SDF for a Lot at a Closing, Purchaser shall receive a credit against the Purchase Price paid by Purchaser for such Lot at such Closing equal to the amount of the District’s SDF paid by Purchaser for the Lot. If representatives of Seller constitute a majority of the board of the District and the Seller controlled board adopts and levies any new SDF after a Closing, Seller shall pay such SDF levied against any Lot that has been acquired by Purchaser for so long as Purchaser owns such Lot.
 
(iv) The covenants set forth in this Section 16 shall survive each respective Closing and shall represent a continuing obligation until the complete satisfaction or payment thereof.
 
17. Reimbursements and Credits. Purchaser shall have no right to any reimbursements and/or cost-sharing agreements pursuant to any agreements entered into between Seller or any of Seller’s affiliates and third parties which may or may not affect the Property. In addition, Purchaser acknowledges that Seller, its affiliates or one (1) or more metropolitan district(s) have installed or may install certain infrastructure improvements ("Infrastructure Improvements") and/or donate, dedicate and/or convey certain rights, improvements and/or real property ("Dedications") to the County or other Authority which benefit all or any part of the Property, together with adjacent properties, and which entitle Seller or its affiliates and/or the Property or any part thereof to certain reimbursements by the County or other Authority or credits by the County or other Authority for open space fees, school impact fees, capital expansion fees, transportation/road fees, traffic impact fees and other governmental fees which would otherwise be required to be paid to the County or other governmental or quasi-governmental entity by the owner of the Property or any part thereof from time to time ("Governmental Fees"). In the event Purchaser is entitled to a credit or waiver of Governmental Fees by the County and/or other governmental or quasi-governmental entity as a result of the Infrastructure Improvements and/or Dedications, then, in such event, Purchaser shall pay to or reimburse Seller and/or its designated affiliates in an amount equal to such credited or waived Governmental Fees at the same time that the Governmental Fees would otherwise be payable by Purchaser or its assignees to the County or other Authority but for the construction of the Infrastructure Improvements and/or the Dedications by Seller, its affiliates and/or metropolitan district(s), excluding in all events the fees to be paid by Seller pursuant to Section 16(c)(i) above. In addition, Purchaser acknowledges that Seller or its affiliate(s) may have negotiated or may negotiate with the County or other Authority for reimbursements to Seller or its affiliates. Purchaser acknowledges that certain Governmental Fees which may be paid by Purchaser to the County or other Authority may be reimbursed to Seller and/or its affiliates pursuant to the terms of said agreement. The obligations and covenants set forth in this Section 17 shall survive the Closing of the purchase and sale of the Property and shall represent a continuing obligation of Purchaser until complete satisfaction thereof. Purchaser shall be released from the obligations in this Section 17 to the extent such obligations are assumed in writing by a subsequent owner of all or a portion of the Property and a copy of such written assumption is furnished to Seller. Each special warranty deed conveying the applicable portion of the Property at each Closing shall contain the foregoing reimbursement covenant.
 
30
 
 
18. Name and Logo ; Sales Activity.
 
(a) The name and logo of "Sky Ranch" are wholly owned by Seller. Purchaser agrees that it shall not use or allow the use of the name "Sky Ranch" or any logo, symbol or other words or phrases which are names or trademarks used or registered by Seller or any of its affiliates in any manner to name, designate, advertise, sell or develop the Property or in connection with the operation or business located or to be located upon the Property without the prior written consent of Seller, which consent may be withheld for any reason. Any consent to the use of such names or logos may be conditioned upon Purchaser entering into a license agreement with Seller, as applicable, at no additional cost to Purchaser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, Purchaser shall have a non-exclusive, royalty-free license for so long as Purchaser is building and selling homes in the Development, without the need for any further consent or approval by Seller, to use the name and logo of "Sky Ranch" in connection with the use, marketing, sales, development and operation of the Property, provided that Purchaser shall comply with any requirements that Seller promulgates with respect to such usage.
 
(b) Following Closing, Purchaser may conduct sales activities (a) from a sales trailer placed on the Development by Purchaser in a reasonable location approved by Seller, subject to relocation at Purchaser’s cost if necessary to accommodate ongoing development and sales activities, or (b) from any other site owned or leased by Purchaser.
 
19. Renderings. All renderings, plans or drawings of the Property or the Development locating landscaping, trees and any improvements are artists’ conceptions only and may not accurately reflect their actual location. Purchaser waives any claims based upon any inaccuracy in the location of such items as depicted on the renderings, plans or drawings.
 
20. Communications Improvements. Seller may, but is not obligated to, enter into an agreement with a service provider for the development and installation of Communication Improvements in all or any portion of the Development. “Communications Improvements” means any equipment, property and facilities, if used or useful in connection with the delivery, deployment, provision or modification of (a) broadband Internet access service; (b) monitoring service, for the benefit of governmental entities, quasi-governmental entities, or utilities, regarding the usage of electricity, gas, water and other resources; (c) video programming or content, including Internet protocol television (a/k/a “IPTV”) service; (d) voice over Internet protocol (a/k/a “VoIP”) service; (e) telecommunications services, including voice; (f) any other service or services delivered by means of the Internet or otherwise delivered by means of digital signals; and (g) any other service or services based on technology that is similar to or is a technological extension of any of the foregoing (“Service”). Communications Improvements do not include any equipment, facilities or property located or in the home of a person who receives services from the service provider, such as, but not limited to routers, wireless access points, in-house wiring, set-top boxes, game consoles, gateways and other equipment under the control of the owner or occupant of the home. Seller may grant to such service provider one or more permanent, non-exclusive, perpetual, assignable and recordable easements (collectively referred to as the “Easement”) to access and use the Property and other property within the Development, as necessary, appropriate or desirable, to lay, install, construct, reconstruct, modify, operate, maintain, repair, enhance, upgrade, regulate, remove, replace and otherwise use the Communications Improvements. So long as any such Easement does not materially interfere with Purchaser’s ability to construct its intended single family homes on the Lots, Purchaser shall not object to and shall cooperate with Seller in connection with the installation and operation of the Communications Improvements.
 
 
31
 
 
21. Soil Hauling. Purchaser shall be responsible for relocating from the Property all surplus soil generated during Purchaser's construction of structures on the Property. At the option of Seller in its sole discretion, the surplus soil shall be transported at Purchaser’s expense to a site designated by Seller within the Development, provided that Seller has designated and made such a site available to Purchaser at the time Purchaser is ready to transport surplus soils. If and to the extent that Seller establishes a stock pile site within the Development, Seller may modify any such stock pile locations from time to time in Seller’s discretion (but Purchaser shall not have any obligation to relocate any soil Purchaser previously delivered to the prior designated stock pile site). At Seller’s request, Purchaser shall supply copies of any reports or field assessments identifying the material characteristics of the excess soil prior to accepting such soil for fill purposes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Seller does not establish a stock pile site or elects not to accept any surplus soils from Purchaser, then Purchaser shall, at its sole expense, find a purchaser or taker or otherwise transport and dispose of such surplus soil upon such terms as it shall desire, but such surplus soil must still be removed from the Property and may not be stockpiled on the Property or within the Development after construction has been completed.
 
22. Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List. Purchaser represents and warrants to Seller that Purchaser and all persons and entities owning (directly or indirectly) an ownership interest in Purchaser are currently in compliance with and shall at all times prior to the Closing of this transaction remain in compliance with the regulations of the Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") of the United States Department of the Treasury (including those named on OFAC’s Specially Designated and Blocked Persons List) and any statute, executive order (including the September 24, 2001, Executive Order Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Persons Who Commit, Threaten to Commit or Support Terrorism), or other governmental action relating thereto. Seller represents and warrants to Purchaser that Seller and all persons and entities owning (directly or indirectly) an ownership interest in Seller are currently in compliance with and shall at all times prior to the Closing of this transaction remain in compliance with the regulations of the OFAC (including those named on OFAC’s Specially Designated and Blocked Persons List) and any statute, executive order (including the September 24, 2001, Executive Order Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Persons Who Commit, Threaten to Commit or Support Terrorism), or other governmental action relating thereto.
 
32
 
 
23. Assignment.
 
(a) Seller's Assignment. Seller may assign its rights and obligations under this Contract with respect to the Lots not yet Closed without the consent of, but with prior notice to, Purchaser: (i) to any entity that acquires all or substantially all of the Seller’ interests in such Lots which Seller reasonably believes has the financial ability and experience to perform Seller’s obligations under this Contract; or (ii) to an entity that controls, is controlled by, or under common control with, Seller.
 
(b) Purchaser's Assignment. The obligations of the Purchaser under this Contract are personal in nature, and neither this Contract nor any rights, interests, or obligations of Purchaser under this Contract may be transferred or assigned without the prior written consent of Seller, except that Purchaser may assign its rights or obligations under this Agreement, without the prior written consent of Seller, to (i) any affiliate of Purchaser, or (ii) any third-party from which Purchaser has a contractual right to acquire the Lots pursuant to an option agreement or similar arrangement with such third-party, but Purchaser shall not be released from any obligations hereunder.
 
24. Survival. All covenants and agreements of either party which are intended to be performed in whole or in part after any Closing or termination of this Contract, and all representations, warranties and indemnities by either party to the other under this Contract shall survive such Closing or termination of this Contract and shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns; provided, however, that Seller’s Representations pursuant to this Contract shall survive each respective Closing for a period of nine (9) months, and any action by Purchaser based on a breach of any of such Seller’s Representations must be brought within such nine (9) month period.
 
25. Condemnation. If a condemnation action is filed or either party receives written notice from any competent condemning authority of intent to condemn which directly affects any Lot or Lots which Purchaser has a right to purchase, either party may at its sole discretion by written notice to the other party within ten (10) days following receipt of such condemnation notice terminate this Contract as to the Lots subject to the condemnation action and receive a refund of a prorata portion of the Deposit with respect to those Lots only, and the parties shall have no further rights or obligations with respect to those Lots. If the right to terminate is not exercised by either party, this Contract shall remain in full force and effect with respect to the Lot in question and upon exercise of the right to purchase the Lot, the Closing shall proceed in accordance with the terms of this Contract. Any condemnation award shall be paid to the party who is the owner of the affected Lot at the time the award is determined by the condemning authority.
 
 
33
 
 
26. Brokers. Each Party does hereby represent that it has not engaged any broker, finder, or real estate agent in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Contract. Each party agrees to and does hereby indemnify and hold the other harmless from any and all fees, brokerage and other commissions or costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), liabilities, losses, damages or claims which may result from any broker, agent or finder, licensed or otherwise, claiming through, under or by reason of the conduct of either of them respectively in connection with the purchase of the Lots by Purchaser.
 
27. Default and Remedies. Time is of the essence hereof. If any amount received as a Deposit hereunder or any other payment due hereunder is not paid by Purchaser, honored or tendered when due and payable, or if each Closing is not consummated as required in accordance with this Contract, or if any other covenant, agreement, obligation or condition hereunder is not performed or waived as herein provided within five (5) days (or such longer period as required under this Contract) after the party failing to perform the same has received written notice of such failure, there shall be the following remedies:
 
(a) Purchaser’s Default. If Purchaser is in default under this Contract, Seller may terminate this Contract, in which event the Deposit shall be forfeited and retained on behalf of Seller, and both parties shall, except as otherwise provided herein, thereafter be released from all obligations hereunder. It is agreed that, except as otherwise provided in this subpart (a) and in subparts (c) and (d) below and except with respect to the indemnification by Purchaser in Sections 10, 12 and 26 above, such payments and things of value are LIQUIDATED DAMAGES and are SELLER’S SOLE AND ONLY REMEDY for Purchaser’s failure to perform the obligations of this Contract prior to the Closing. Except as otherwise provided in this Contract, Seller expressly waives the remedies of specific performance and additional damages with respect to a default by Purchaser. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other contrary provision of this Contract, any and all provisions of this Contract pursuant to which Purchaser agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and defend Seller from and against any losses, costs, claims, causes of action or liabilities of any kind or nature, or pursuant to which Purchaser waives any rights or claims that it may have against Seller, shall survive any termination of this Contract, and shall be and remain fully enforceable against Purchaser in accordance with the terms of this Contract and applicable laws.
 
(b) Seller’s Default. If Seller is in default under this Contract, Purchaser may elect AS ITS SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY either: (i) to treat this Contract as canceled, in which case the unapplied Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser, and Purchaser shall have the right to recover, as damages, all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by it in negotiating this Contract and in inspecting, analyzing or otherwise performing its rights and obligations pursuant to this Contract, but in no event will the amount of such damages exceed Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00); or (ii) Purchaser may elect to treat this Contract as being in full force and effect and Purchaser shall have a right to specific performance, provided that any such action for specific performance must be commenced within sixty (60) days after the expiration of the applicable notice and cure period provided herein, and, in the event specific performance is not available, than Purchaser may pursue the remedy set forth in clause (i) above. Seller shall not be liable for and Purchaser shall not be entitled to recover exemplary, punitive, special, indirect, consequential, lost profits or any other damages (except for recovery of out-of-pocket expenses as set forth in clause (i) above).
 
34
 
 
(c) Indemnity. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of this Contract, any and all provisions of this Contract pursuant to which a party agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and defend the other party from and against any losses, costs, claims, causes of action or liabilities of any kind or nature, or pursuant to which a party waives any rights or claims that it may have against the other party, shall survive any termination of this Contract, and shall be and remain fully enforceable against a party in accordance with the terms of this Contract and applicable laws.
 
(d) Award of Costs and Fees. Anything to the contrary herein notwithstanding, in the event of any litigation arising out of this Contract related to an action for specific performance brought by either party as permitted in accordance with the terms of this Contract, the court shall award the substantially prevailing party all reasonable costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by the substantially prevailing party in the litigation or other proceedings.
 
(e) Post-Closing Defaults. With respect to post-closing defaults, the parties agree that the non-defaulting party shall be entitled to exercise all remedies available at law or in equity, except that damages shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred. The foregoing does not limit or control the remedies as are to be separately provided in the Lot Development Agreement.
 
28. General Provisions. The parties hereto further agree as follows:
 
(a) Time of the Essence. Time is of the essence under this Contract. In computing any period of time under this Contract, the date of the act or event from which the designated period of time begins to run shall not be included. The last day of the period so computed shall be included unless it is a Saturday, Sunday, or federal legal holiday, in which event the period shall run until the end of the next day which is not a Saturday, Sunday, or federal legal holiday.
 
(b) Governing Law. This Contract shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado.
 
(c) Severability. Should any provisions of this Contract or the application thereof, to any extent, be held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Contract and the application thereof, other than those provisions which shall have been held invalid or unenforceable, shall not be affected thereby and shall continue in full force and effect and shall be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted at law or in equity.
 
(d) Entire Contract. This Contract embodies the entire agreement between the parties hereto concerning the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior conversations, proposals, negotiations, understandings and agreements, whether written or oral.
 
(e) Exhibits. All schedules, exhibits and addenda attached to this Contract and referred to herein shall for all purposes be deemed to be incorporated in this Contract by this reference and made a part hereof.

Each of the parties hereto represents to the other that each such party has full power and authority to execute, deliver and, subject to Purchaser obtaining AMC Approval, perform this Contract, that the individuals executing this Contract on behalf of said party are fully empowered and authorized to do so, that this Contract constitutes a valid and legally binding obligation of such party enforceable against such party in accordance with its terms, that such execution, delivery and performance will not contravene any legal or contractual restriction binding upon such party or any of its assets and that there is no legal action, proceeding or investigation of any kind now pending or to the knowledge of each such party threatened against or affecting such party or affecting the execution, delivery or performance of this Contract. Each of the parties hereto represents to the other that each such party is a duly organized, legal entity and is validly existing in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its formation.
 
(j) Notices. All notices, statements, demands, requirements, or other communications and documents (collectively, "Communications") required or permitted to be given, served, or delivered by or to either party or any intended recipient under this Contract shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given (i) on the date and at the time of delivery if delivered personally to the party to whom notice is given at the address specified below; or (ii) on the date and at the time of delivery or refusal of acceptance of delivery if delivered or attempted to be delivered by an overnight courier service to the party to whom notice is given at the address specified below; or (iii) on the date of delivery or attempted delivery shown on the return receipt if mailed to the party to whom notice is to be given by first-class mail, sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid and properly addressed as specified below; or (iv) on the date and at the time shown on the facsimile or electronic mail message if telecopied or sent electronically to the number or address specified below (provided, however, any notice of default to Purchaser may not be sent by electronic mail and must be sent by one of the other methods of delivery set forth above):

2. Dry Utilities. Electricity, natural gas, and telephone service will be installed by local utility companies. The installations may not be completed at the time of a Closing, and are not part of the Finish Lot Improvements; provided, however, that: (i) with respect to electric distribution lines and street lights, Seller will have signed an agreement with the electric utility service provider and paid all costs and fees for the installation of electric distribution lines and facilities to serve the Lots, and all sleeves necessary for electric, gas, telephone and/or cable television service to the Lots will be installed; (ii) with respect to gas distribution lines, Seller will have signed an agreement with the gas utility service provider and paid all costs and fees for the installation of gas distribution lines and facilities to serve the Lots; and (iii) Seller will seek to coordinate the activities of the utility service provider with development of the Property for the timely installation of such utilities.

4. Tree Lawns/Sidewalks. Notwithstanding anything in this Contract to the contrary, Seller shall have no obligation to construct, install, maintain or pay for the maintenance, construction and installation of (i) any landscaping or irrigation for such landscaping behind the curb on any Lot that is to be maintained by the owner of such lot (collectively, “Tree Lawns”), but Seller shall be responsible for constructing and installing the detached sidewalks and ramps (collectively, “Sidewalks”) that are located immediately adjacent to any Lot or on a tract as required by the approved CDs, County, or any other Authority and/or applicable laws as provided in this Contract.

5. Warranty.
 
(a) Government Warranty Period. The Authorities require warranty periods (each a “Government Warranty Period”) after the final completion that is applicable to those Finished Lots Improvements that are dedicated to or owned, and accepted for maintenance by the Authorities (the “Public Improvements”). In the event defects in the Public Improvements to which a governmental warranty (each a “Governmental Warranty”) applies become apparent during the applicable Government Warranty Period, then Seller shall coordinate the repairs with the applicable Authorities and cause the service provider(s) who performed the work or supplied the materials in which the defect(s) appear to complete such repairs or, if such service providers fail to correct such defects, otherwise cause such defects to be repaired to the satisfaction of the Authorities.

(b) Non-Government Warranty Period. Seller warrants (“Non-Government Warranty”) to Purchaser that each Finished Lot Improvement, other than the Public Improvements, shall have been constructed in accordance with the CDs for one (1) year from the date of Final Completion of the Improvement (the “Non-Government Warranty Period”). If Purchaser delivers written notice to Seller of breach of the Non-Government Warranty during the Non-Government Warranty Period, then Seller shall coordinate the corrections with Purchaser and cause the service provider(s) who performed the work or supplied the materials in which the breach of Non-Government Warranty appears to complete such corrections or, if such service providers fail to make such corrections, otherwise cause such corrections to be made to the reasonable satisfaction of Purchaser.

3.4 Taxes, Fees and Permits. Developer or the Service Providers shall pay all applicable sales, use, and other similar taxes pertaining to the construction of the Improvements, and shall secure and pay for all approvals, easements, assessments, charges, permits and governmental fees, licenses and inspections necessary for proper construction and completion of the Improvements, subject to the terms of the Contract and except as provided otherwise in this LDA. Developer and the Service Providers shall not defer the payment of any use taxes pertaining to the Improvements except as may be authorized under law or agreement with the applicable taxing authorities.
 
3.5 Dedications. Developer and each Builder upon whose property the Improvements are located shall timely make all conveyances and dedications of the Improvements as to any Improvements owned by such Party if and as required by the Approving Authorities, free and clear of all liens and encumbrances.
 
3.6 Indemnity. Developer shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Builder and its owners, employees, members, managers, directors, officers, agents, affiliates, successors and assigns (each a “Builder Indemnitee” and collectively, the “Builder Indemnitees”) for, from and against all claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages (exclusive of special, consequential, punitive, consequential and lost profits damages), costs and expenses, including but not limited to court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of (a) Off-Lot Soils Conditions, or (b) material damage caused by Developer’s negligence or willful misconduct in the performance of the construction of the Improvements. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Developer shall not be obligated under this LDA to indemnify the Builder Indemnitees to the extent such liabilities result from the negligence or willful misconduct of any Builder Indemnitee. Builder shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Developer and its respective owners, affiliates, employees, members, managers, directors, officers, agents, successors and assigns (each an “Developer Indemnitee” and collectively, the “Developer Indemnitees”) for, from and against all claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, costs and expenses, including but not limited to court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of or relating to (a) On-Lot Soils Conditions, (b) Builder’s development, construction, use, ownership, management, marketing or sale activities associated with the initial home construction on the Lots (including, without limitation, land development, grading, excavation, trenching, soils compaction and construction on the Lots performed by or on behalf of Builder); (c) Intentionally Deleted; (d) any change subsequent to the Effective Date in the Entitlements to the extent that the change was caused, requested or made by Builder or the design of any residences (“Homes”) constructed on the Builder Lots other than claims arising out of Developer’s negligence or willful misconduct in the performance of Developer’s obligations under this LDA; or (e) homeowner claims asserting or relating to any implied warranty of habitability, merchantability, or fitness for any particular purpose in connection with Builder’s construction of one or more Homes on the Builder Lots. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Builder shall not, as to any Builder Lot, be obligated under this LDA to indemnify, defend or hold harmless Developer Indemnitees from claims arising out of development, construction, use, ownership, management, marketing or sales activities associated with the initial construction of homes on Builder Lots which occurs after Builder conveys such Builder Lot if such successor is reasonably approved by Developer and gives Developer a substitute indemnity that is equivalent to the indemnity provided by the Builder under this Section 3.6 and such successor is financially sound as reasonably determined by Developer. Developer covenants with Builder that Developer has and will include geologic, soils and groundwater provisions in the indemnities Developer obtains from other builders within the Development that are at least as protective of Developer as those provided in Sections 3.6 and 4.7 of this Agreement.  Obligations under this Section shall survive the termination or expiration of this LDA.
 
F-3
 
 
3.7 Insurance. Developer shall procure and maintain, and shall cause the Service Providers to procure and maintain, the insurance described in Exhibit C attached hereto during the construction of the Improvements and any warranty work performed on the Improvements.
 
3.8 Independent Contractor. Developer is an independent contractor and neither Developer nor its employees are entitled to worker’s compensation benefits or unemployment insurance benefits through any Builder as a result of performing under the LDA. The Developer is responsible for and obligated to pay all assessable federal and state income tax on amounts earned or paid under this LDA.
 
4. Construction of Improvements.
 
4.1 Plans and Specifications. Developer shall (i) diligently finalize, process and obtain approval of the Plans for the Improvements from the applicable Approving Authorities to the extent required by such entities, and (ii) apply to the utility service provider for the preparation of dry utility plans (“Utility Plans”). Upon receipt of the approved Plans for the Improvements and the Utility Plans for the dry utilities from the utility service provider, Developer will furnish a copy of such Utility Plans to the Builder. After replacement of Exhibit B by the Revised Exhibit B, if Developer elects to amend the Plans in a manner that will result in a Material Change (defined below), then Developer shall provide written notice of the Material Change (a “Notice of Material Change”) to Builder if the Builder Lots are affected by the change. The Notice of Material Change shall describe the modification to the Plans requested by Developer. Builder shall have five (5) business days after receipt of the Notice of Material Change to provide written notice to the Developer if it objects to the proposed Material Change (a “Notice of Material Change Objection”), which shall describe revisions to the Material Change that would render it acceptable to Builder. If Builder fails to give a timely Notice of Material Change Objection to Developer, the Material Change shall be deemed approved by Builder. If Developer performs any Material Change without first providing Builder with a Notice of Material Change, or after Receiving a Notice of Material Change Objection, which objection has not been resolved in accordance with the following provisions, then Developer shall assume responsibility for the cost of correcting any such change, as well as the time impacts for making such correction. Within five (5) business days after delivery to Developer of a Notice of Material Change Objection, said Developer and the Builder shall meet to approve or reject the Material Change. If Developer and Builder cannot reach an acceptable resolution regarding the Notice of Material Change Objection, the dispute shall be resolved pursuant to the arbitration provision set forth in Section 7 below. For purposes of this Section 4.1, a “Material Change” shall consist only of the following changes to the approved Plans for the Improvements to be installed for the benefit of the Property which have previously been approved by the applicable Approving Authorities:
 
F-4
 
 
4.1.1 Reduction of the total number of Builder Lots available for the construction of residences by more than 10%.
 
4.1.2 With respect to those certain Lots identified in Exhibit H attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference, material adverse impact on the ability to serve basements with nine (9) foot foundation wall heights with gravity flow sanitary sewer service on the Builder Lots.
 
4.1.3 Changes greater than one half (1/2) of one (1) foot to the proposed finish grade elevation for any of the Builder Lots.
 
4.2 Construction Standard. Developer shall cause the applicable Improvements to be constructed in accordance with the Construction Standard and shall obtain preliminary and final acceptance thereof by all Approving Authorities. As used herein, the term “Construction Standard” means construction and installation of the Improvements in a good, workmanlike and lien-free manner and in substantial conformity with the Plans (as may be modified pursuant to the terms hereof), the applicable requirements of the Approving Authorities, and the “Finished Lot Standard” set forth on Exhibit D attached hereto. The Construction Standard does not include any so-called “over excavation” or comparable preparation or mitigation of the soil (hereinafter defined as the “Overex”) on the Builder Lots and Builder has sole responsibility with respect to any Overex that the Builder determines to undertake on the Builder Lots. The terms and provision of Section 10(e) (Over Excavation) of the Contract are hereby incorporated herein by this reference. The Parties shall reasonably cooperate in coordinating the Builder’s completion of the Overex so that the Overex can be properly sequenced with Developer’s completion of the Improvements. In no event shall Developer be liable to Builder for any delay, costs or damages incurred with respect to such Overex, even if caused by any delay in installation of Improvements sequenced ahead of the Overex, and all timeframes shall be deemed extended appropriately in the event of any delay in completing such Overex in accordance with the Construction Schedule (as hereinafter defined).
 
4.3 Construction Contracts for Work. Developer and contractors of Developer shall contract for all of the work and materials comprising the applicable Improvements. Developer shall have the right to bid, pursue, negotiate, agree to and execute contracts and agreements with Service Providers for the work and materials comprising the Improvements (each a “Construction Contract” and collectively, the “Construction Contracts”), based upon forms that Developer deems necessary or appropriate in its commercially reasonable discretion; provided, however, that Developer shall deliver written notice to Builder after it shall enter into any Construction Contract, which notice shall identify the Service Provider(s). Developer shall attempt to cause each Construction Contract, in addition to other matters, to (i) allow for the automatic assignment, without need for further action, of all of Developer’s rights (including, without limitation, the warranty and indemnity provisions thereof) to Builder on a non-exclusive basis in the event of replacement of Developer pursuant to the terms of this LDA, and identify Builder as an intended third-party beneficiaries of the Construction Contract, (ii) require the Service Provider to name the Builder as additional insureds on all required insurance maintained by the Service Provider for a period expiring not sooner than final acceptance of the Improvements by the applicable Approving Authority for which such Service Provider furnished materials or work, (iii) require the Service Providers to provide a warranty on materials and labor supplied by such Service Provider for a period coterminous with the warranty period required by the applicable Approving Authorities for Improvements to be dedicated to an Approving Authority, but in no event less than one (1) year for any Improvement, (iv) require the Service Provider to perform its work in accordance with the Construction Standard, (v) require the Service Provider to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Developer from all claims and causes of action arising from the negligent acts or omissions or intentional misconduct of the Service Provider or its employees or agents, (vi) permit retainage in an amount of at least five percent (5%) of the amounts payable to the Service Provider, until the work to be completed pursuant to such contract has been substantially completed and, if applicable, granted initial acceptance by the applicable Approving Authority; (vii) provide the Developer the right, but not the obligation, to pay subcontractors and suppliers of the Service Provider directly or by joint check, and (viii) provide for no limitation on remedies against the Service Provider for a default except the prohibition of recovery of punitive damages. Upon receipt of written request from Builder, Developer shall deliver a copy of each Construction Contract to such Builder.

4.4 Commencement and Completion Dates. Developer shall cause construction of the Improvements to be commenced and completed as follows:
 
4.4.1 Commencement; Construction Schedule; Completion. The Improvements will be completed in phases consisting of two phases with respect to the Takedown 1 Lots and two subsequent phases with respect to the Takedown 2 Lots for a total of four phases (each a “Phase”). Developer shall commence and complete each component of the Improvements in each Phase in accordance with the construction schedule set forth on Exhibit E attached hereto (the “Construction Schedule”), and cause Substantial Completion of the Improvements in each Phase to occur on or before the applicable deadline therefor as set forth in the Construction Schedule (the “Substantial Completion Deadline”); provided, however, subject to Section 4.4.2 below. The Construction Schedule will provide for the first Phase (“Phase 1”) to be substantially completed ten (10) months after the First Closing, with the second Phase (“Phase 2”) to be substantially completed nine (9) months after substantial completion of Phase 1, with the third Phase (“Phase 3”) to be substantially completed nine (9) months after the Second Closing and the fourth Phase (“Phase 4”) to be substantially completed nine (9) months after substantial completion of Phase 3, all subject to Section 4.4.2 below. Developer may cause Improvements to be constructed and installed as Developer deems necessary, in the Developer’s commercially reasonable discretion, to coordinate such Improvements with the development of portions of the Development other than the Property; or cause Improvements to be constructed and installed in accordance with scheduling requirements of the County and other Approving Authorities. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the Developer shall have no obligation to install landscaping during the months of October through April.
 
4.4.2 Force Majeure. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of this LDA, the completion dates and all interim milestones (if any) set forth on the Construction Schedule, the Substantial Completion Deadline, and the time for performance of Developer’s other obligations under the Construction Schedule or this LDA shall be extended by a period of time equal to any period that such performance or progress in construction of the Improvements is delayed due to any Dispute, as defined below, acts or failure to act of any Approving Authority, strike, riot, act of war, act of terrorism, act of violence, weather, act of God, or any other act, occurrence or non-occurrence beyond Developer’s reasonable control (each, an “Uncontrollable Event”).
 
F-6
 
 
4.5 Substantial Completion.
 
4.5.1 Definition of Substantial Completion. “Substantial Completion” of the Improvements (or applicable component thereof) shall be deemed to have occurred when all of the following have occurred with respect to the Improvements (or applicable component thereof):
 
(a) Subject to Section 4.5.1(c) below, Developer has substantially completed or corrected all punchlist items provided by the Approving Authorities and the Builders affecting the Improvements (or applicable component thereof) in accordance with Section 4.5.2 below so that Builder is not precluded from obtaining from the Approving Authorities building permits for houses constructed, or to be constructed (or certificates of occupancy therefor), on any Builder Lots solely as a result of such punchlist items (or applicable component thereof) not being complete, and Developer has obtained lien releases reasonably acceptable to Builder from all contractors performing work related to the Improvements;
 
(b) Subject to Section 4.5.1(c) below, the Improvements (or applicable component thereof) have been installed pursuant to the Construction Standard and shall be substantially complete so that Builder is not precluded from obtaining from the Approving Authorities building permits for houses constructed, or to be constructed (or certificates of occupancy therefor), on any Builder Lots solely as a result of such Improvements (or applicable component thereof) not being complete;
 
(c) Any Improvements (or applicable component thereof) that are intended to be dedicated to or accepted by an Approving Authority shall have been inspected and preliminarily accepted by the applicable Approving Authority (subject to the Government Warranty Period (as defined below)); except that those Improvements that are (x) to be phased, if any, as set forth in the Entitlements, or (y) not necessary or required by the Approving Authority to occur prior to issuance of a building permit or certificate of occupancy for Homes on the Lots, (collectively, the “Additional Improvements”), will not be required to achieve Substantial Completion, but Developer shall nevertheless be required to complete construction and obtain acceptance of such Additional Improvements by the applicable Approving Authority after Substantial Completion at such time as is required by the applicable Approving Authorities and so that Builder is not precluded from obtaining from the Approving Authorities building permits or certificate of occupancy for houses constructed, or to be constructed, on any Builder Lots solely as a result of such Additional Improvements (or applicable component thereof) not being complete.
 
(d) No mechanics’ or materialmen’s liens shall have then been filed against any of the Builder Lots with respect to the Improvements and lien waivers have been obtained from the Service Providers that constructed the Improvements (or applicable portion thereof), or the Developer has obtained a bond to insure over any such mechanics’ or materialmen’s liens.
 
F-7
 
 
(e) With respect to any Improvements that are required by the Construction Standard or that are required by the subdivision improvement agreement applicable to the Builder Lots but which are not addressed as part of the Construction Standard or the Finished Lot Standard, and any other Improvements which are not required for the issuance of building permits but which are required by the Approving Authorities so that Homes and other improvements constructed by Builder on the Builder Lots are eligible for the issuance of certificates of occupancy for homes, the Developer shall complete or cause the completion of such other Improvements, to the extent required by the Approving Authorities, so as not to delay the issuance of certificates of occupancy for Homes constructed by Builder on the Builder Lots.
 
4.5.2 Inspection.
 
(a) Notice to Builder. Developer shall notify Builder in writing when Substantial Completion of the Improvements (or applicable component thereof) on the Builder Lots has been achieved, except for minor punch-list work which does not affect the ability to obtain building permits or certificates of occupancy, as applicable, for Homes on the Lots, and the date(s) and time(s) the Approving Authorities will inspect such Improvements (or applicable component thereof). Within ten (10) days after receipt by Builder of such notice from the Developer, Developer and Builder shall jointly inspect the Improvements (or applicable component thereof) on the Builder Lots and produce a punchlist (“Builder Punchlist”). The Builder Punchlist may not contain any items other than incomplete Improvements or components thereof, deficient or defective construction of the Improvements or components thereof, or failure to construct the Improvements or components thereof in accordance with the Construction Standard. Builder shall not be able to object or provide Builder Punchlist items for any portion of the Improvements previously inspected by the Builder. If the Parties are unable to agree upon a Builder Punchlist within five (5) days after the joint inspection described above, then any dispute related to such punchlist shall be submitted to the expedited dispute resolution procedures in accordance with Section 7 below. Developer will give Builder notice of the date and time of inspections of the Improvements by the Approving Authorities and Builder may attend such inspections. Developer will attempt to provide Builder with copies of any inspection reports or punchlists received from the Approving Authorities in connection with the inspection of the Improvements, and Developer shall be responsible to correct punchlist items from the Approving Authority and items set forth on the Builder Punchlist. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary including any Builder Punchlist, if an Approving Authority grants preliminary approval or construction acceptance to any of the Improvements, or if the engineer issues a certification with respect to the grading, fill and compaction in accordance with item (g) of Exhibit D, then it shall conclusively be presumed that such Improvement or work was completed in accordance with the Construction Standard, subject to completion of the punchlist items provided by the Approving Authority. If an item is not identified as incomplete on the Builder Punchlist, then it shall conclusively be presumed that such Improvement was completed in accordance with the Construction Standard, and thereafter the Builder and not Developer shall be responsible for repairing damage to such Improvement occurring after completion of the Builder Punchlist work unless such damage is determined either by agreement of the parties or pursuant to Section 7 of this LDA to be the result of a design or construction defect. Disputes regarding Builder Punchlist items and matters will be resolved pursuant to the expedited dispute resolution procedures set forth in Section 7 of this LDA.
 
F-8
 
 
(b) Correction of Punchlist Items. Developer shall cause any punchlist items to be corrected within the time required by the County or other applicable Approving Authorities, or such shorter time as may be required pursuant to the Construction Schedule.
 
(c) Interim Inspections. Upon reasonable prior notice, each Builder may inspect the construction of the Improvements on the Builder Lots; provided, however, such inspection shall be (i) at the sole risk of Builder, (ii) such inspection shall be non-invasive and shall be performed in a manner that does not interfere with or result in a delay in the construction of the Improvements, and (iii) Builder shall indemnify Developer for any damage resulting from such inspection.
 
4.6 Self-Help Remedy.
 
4.6.1 Notice of Default. If Developer: (a) breaches its obligation under this LDA to complete or cause the completion of any Improvement in accordance with the Plans or Construction Schedule (as extended by any Uncontrollable Event); (b) otherwise breaches any material obligation under this LDA; (c) fails to comply with any material provision of its Construction Contracts with Service Providers beyond any applicable express notice or cure periods; or (d) files a petition for relief in bankruptcy or makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or admits in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due (each a “Bankruptcy Event”), then the Builder may deliver written notice of the breach to Developer (a “Notice of Default”). Each of the events set forth in Subsections (a) through (d) inclusive of the preceding sentence shall be herein referred to as a “Constructing Party Default.” For any Constructing Party Default other than a Bankruptcy Event, the Developer shall have thirty (30) days after Developer’s receipt of the Notice of Default from the Builder to cure the Constructing Party Default (the “Cure Period”); provided, however, if the nature of the Constructing Party Default is such that it cannot reasonably be cured within thirty (30) days, the Cure Period shall be deemed extended for a reasonable period of time (not to exceed an additional sixty (60) days) so long as Developer commenced in good faith and with due diligence to cause such Constructing Party Default to be remedied. If Developer does not cause the cure of the Constructing Party Default within the Cure Period (as may be extended pursuant to the preceding sentence, and subject to Uncontrollable Events), or if a Bankruptcy Event occurs (either, an “Event of Default”), then the Builder may elect to appoint either itself or another qualified third party (which may include another builder under contract with Developer to purchase lots within the Development, provided that such builder agrees to, and accepts, such appointment) (“Substitute Constructing Party”) to assume and take over the construction of the Improvements by providing written notice to Developer of its election (the “Assumption Notice”). Substitute Constructing Party’s assumption of the construction of the Improvements shall not include the assumption of any liability for acts or omissions occurring prior to the Assumption Notice, or payment of any “Constructing Party Cost Overruns” (as defined below) incurred prior to the Assumption Notice, which Constructing Party Cost Overruns shall remain the sole responsibility of the Developer, or receipt of any cost savings prior to the Assumption Notice; provided, however, that the Substitute Constructing Party shall be entitled to an administrative fee in an amount equal to two percent (2%) of the remaining Costs (as defined below) actually paid, which administrative fee shall be included in the Constructing Party Cost Overruns. The Builder’s election to appoint a Substitute Constructing Party to assume and take over the construction of the Improvements and to exercise and enforce the rights and obligations set forth in Section 4.6.2 below shall thereafter be the Builder’s sole and exclusive remedy.
 
F-9
 
 
4.6.2 Assumption Right. If Builder delivers an Assumption Notice, then: (i) Developer shall cooperate to allow the Substitute Constructing Party to take over and complete the incomplete Improvements, including the execution and delivery to the Substitute Constructing Party of such agreements, documents or instruments as may be reasonably necessary to assign to the Substitute Constructing Party all Construction Contracts with third parties pertaining to the Improvements; (ii) Developer shall remain responsible for all Constructing Party Cost Overruns (as hereinafter defined), but Developer shall be relieved of all further obligations under this LDA with respect to the completion of the incomplete Improvements subsequent to such assumption; (iii) Developer shall remain liable for its negligence or willful misconduct, and any indemnification obligations specified herein incurred prior to the date of such assumption; and (v) Substitute Constructing Party shall assume and perform all obligations under all Contracts for Improvements which Substitute Constructing Party will complete to the extent such obligations are to be performed after the date of delivery of the Assumption Notice. Upon delivery of an Assumption Notice, Substitute Constructing Party shall be obligated to complete the Improvements and pay the Costs incurred thereafter by Substitute Constructing Party to complete the Improvements. If a Substitute Constructing Party assumes the obligation to construct the Improvements, the Builder’s obligation for the payment of costs under Section 6.1 which are due and payable after the date of the Assumption Notice shall be suspended and thereafter terminated if the Substitute Constructing Party achieves Substantial Completion of any unfinished Improvements, and the Substitute Constructing Party shall be entitled to recover the Constructing Party Cost Overruns incurred by the Substitute Constructing Party from the Developer. In the event of an Assumption Notice, the Substitute Constructing Party shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Developer and its members, managers, shareholders, employees, directors, officers, agents, affiliates, successors and assigns for, from and against all claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages (exclusive of special, consequential, punitive, speculative or lost profits damages), costs and expenses, including but not limited to court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees, that accrue after the date of the Assumption Notice and arise out of the Substitute Constructing Party’s completion of the Improvements, and this indemnity shall not apply to any claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, costs, expenses, acts or omissions arising or accruing before the date of the Assumption Notice. The obligations under this Section shall survive the termination or expiration of this LDA.
 
F-10
 
 
4.6.3 Appointment of Substitute Constructing Party. For purposes of exercising the self-help remedies set forth in this Section 4.6 with respect to an Event of Default, Builder may elect to appoint either itself or another Substitute Constructing Party (which may include another builder under contract with Developer to purchase lots within the Development, provided that such builder agrees to, and accepts, such appointment) who shall then have the right and authority to act pursuant to the self-help provisions of this Section 4.6 (“Designated Builder”). If the cure of an Event of Default requires the construction or completion of Improvements that serve both the Builder Lots and other lots that are owned by another homebuilder that is under contract with Developer for the completion of such Improvements (the “Joint Improvements”), then the Builder shall, at Builder’s election, have the first right and option (ahead of all other builders within the Development) to step in and act on behalf of all such builders pursuant to the self-help provisions of this Section 4.6 with respect to the Joint Improvements (“Builder’s Step-In Option”). Builder may exercise the Builder Step-In Option by giving notice to Developer and the other builders within fifteen (15) days following the Event of Default (“Builder’s Step-In Deadline”). If Builder does not exercise Builder’s Step-in Option prior to the Builder Step-In Deadline, then the other builders shall have the right to exercise an option to step-in and select a Substitute Contracting Party to act on behalf of all such builders pursuant to the self-help provisions of this Section 4.6 with respect to the Joint Improvements by giving notice to Developer and the other builders within fifteen (15) days following the expiration of Builder’s Step-In Deadline. The Developer, builder, the other builders(s) affected by any joint improvements and the Title Company will at Closing execute a “Joint Improvements Memorandum” that describes the rights and obligations of Developer, Builder, such other builder(s) and Title Company and such document will supplement this Lot Development Agreement regarding the installation and construction of any Joint Improvements. The form of the Joint Improvements Memorandum shall be agreed upon during the Inspection Period under the Contract and attached to this Lot Development Agreement as Exhibit J.
 
4.7 Over-Excavation of Lots. The Parties acknowledge that the Improvements shall not include Overex of the Lots. Builder, with respect to its Builder Lots shall, at its sole cost, cause the Overex to be performed, and shall have the right to enter such Builder Lots for the purposes of performing the Overex; provided, however, that such entry shall be performed in a manner that does not materially interfere with or result in a material delay or an increase in the Costs or any expenses in the construction of the Improvements, and provided further that Builder shall promptly repair any portion of the Builder Lots and adjacent property that is materially damaged by Builder or its agents, designees, employees, contractors, or subcontractors in performing the Overex. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT DEVELOPER IS NOT PERFORMING ANY OVER-EXCAVATION OF THE BUILDER LOTS AND THAT THE DEVELOPER SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO OR ARISING OUT OF ANY OVER-EXCAVATION OF THE BUILDER LOTS OR EXPANSIVE SOILS PRESENT ON THE BUILDER LOTS AND DEVELOPER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY OVER-EXCAVATION OF THE LOTS AND EXPANSIVE SOILS PRESENT ON THE BUILDER LOTS. BUILDER SHALL INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD HARMLESS DEVELOPER AND ITS SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS, AFFILIATES, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS FOR, FROM AND AGAINST ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, LIABILITIES, LOSSES, DAMAGES (EXCLUSIVE OF SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, SPECULATIVE OR LOST PROFITS DAMAGES), COSTS AND EXPENSES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO COURT COSTS AND REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES, ARISING OUT OF BUILDER’S OVER-EXCAVATION OR OTHER SOIL MITIGATION OR BUILDER’S ELECTION NOT TO PERFORM SOILS MITIGATION, ON OR PERTAINING TO THE BUILDER LOTS. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 4.7 SHALL EXPRESSLY SURVIVE THE EXPIRATION OR TERMINATION OF THIS LDA.
 
F-11
 
 
4.8 Warranty Periods.
 
4.8.1 Government Warranty Period. The Approving Authorities may require a warranty period after the Substantial Completion of the Improvements (a “Government Warranty Period”). In the event defects in the Improvements to which a governmental warranty applies become apparent during the Government Warranty Period, then Developer shall coordinate the repairs with the applicable Approving Authorities and cause the Service Provider(s) who performed the work or supplied the materials in which the defect(s) appear to complete such repairs or, if such Service Providers fail to correct such defects, otherwise cause such defects to be repaired to the satisfaction of the Approving Authorities. Any costs and expenses incurred in connection with any repairs or warranty work performed during the Government Warranty Period (including, but not limited to, any costs or expenses incurred to enforce any warranties against any Service Providers) shall be borne by Developer and shall be included in the Constructing Party Cost Overruns, unless such defect or damage was caused by Builder or its contractors, subcontractors, employees, or agents, in which event Builder shall pay all such costs and expenses to the extent caused by Builder or its contractors, subcontractors, employees, or agents. Any damage to an Improvement that was not listed on the Builder Punchlist shall be presumed to have been caused by Builder or its contractors, subcontractors, employees, or agents, unless the Builder conclusively proves that the damage was caused as the result of a design or construction defect in the original construction by Developer as determined by agreement of the parties or as determined pursuant to the Expedited Dispute procedure in Section 7, below.
 
4.8.2 Non-Government Warranty Period. Developer warrants (“Non-Government Warranty”) to Builder that each Improvement to which a Governmental Warranty Period does not apply shall have been constructed in accordance with the Plans for one (1) year from the date of Substantial Completion of the Improvement (the “Non-Government Warranty Period”). If Builder delivers written notice to Developer of breach of the Non-Government Warranty during the Non-Government Warranty Period, then Developer shall coordinate the corrections with the Builder and cause the Service Provider(s) who performed the applicable work or supplied the applicable materials to complete such corrections or, if such Service Providers fail to make such corrections, otherwise cause such corrections to be made. Any costs and expenses incurred in connection with a breach of the Non-Government Warranty shall be borne by Developer (including, but not limited to, any costs or expenses incurred to enforce any warranties against Service Providers), and shall be included in the Constructing Party Cost Overruns, unless such breach was caused by Builder or its contractors, subcontractors, employees, or agents, in which event the Builder shall pay all such costs and expenses to the extent caused by Builder or its contractors, subcontractors, employees, or agents. Any damage to an Improvement that was not listed on the Builder Punchlist shall be presumed to have been caused by Builder or its contractors, subcontractors, employees, or agents, unless Builder conclusively proves that the damage was caused as the result of a design or construction defect in the original construction by Developer. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN SECTION 4.8.1 OR 4.8.2, THE DEVELOPER PARTIES MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND TO BUILDER IN RELATION TO THE IMPROVEMENTS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF HABITABILITY, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OF THE SAME AND SHALL HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO REPAIR OR CORRECT ANY DEFECT IN IMPROVEMENTS FOR WHICH NO CLAIM IS ASSERTED DURING THE APPLICABLE WARRANTY PERIOD. The preceding sentence does not affect, alter or modify any Service Provider’s obligations to repair or correct any defects in Improvements and shall not be construed as a limitation on the Builder’s statutory rights or remedies which may not be modified by contract.
 
F-12
 
 
4.9 License for Construction. Each Party hereby grants to Developer or the Substitute Constructing Party (as applicable) and the Service Providers a temporary, non-exclusive license to enter upon the parcel within the Property owned by such Party as reasonably necessary for the installation of the Improvements, rough grading of the Builder Lots, stubbing of utilities and/or the performance of Developer’s (or Substitute Constructing Party’s, as applicable) responsibilities under this LDA. Each Party further agrees to grant such separate written rights of entry and/or licenses in or upon the parcel owned by such Party as may be reasonably necessary for installation of the Improvements, rough grading of the Builder Lots and stubbing of utilities. No rights of entry and/or licenses over any portion of the Property may be exercised or used by a Party in any fashion that would unreasonably interfere with or adversely impact any other Party’s development of its parcel. The rights under this Section or any instruments delivered hereunder shall terminate upon the expiration of all Government Warranty Periods.
 
4.10 Liens. Developer shall pay, or cause to be paid, when due, all liens and claims for labor and/or materials furnished to the Builder Lots pursuant to this LDA to prevent the filing or recording by any third party of any mechanics’, materialmen’s or other lien, stop notice or bond claim or any attachments, levies or garnishments (collectively “Liens”) involving the Improvements. Developer will, within forty-five (45) calendar days after written notice from Builder or after Developer otherwise become aware of such Liens, terminate the effect of any Liens by filing or recording an appropriate release or bond if so requested by Builder. If a Builder requests a Developer to file and obtain any such release or bond and Developer fails to do so within forty-five (45) calendar days of such request (which 45-day period may be extended by Developer to 60 days provided that Developer has proceeded in good faith and with diligence and not achieved the filing or recording of an appropriate release or bond by the end of the 45-day period), Builder may obtain such bond or secure such release on behalf of Developer, and Developer shall reimburse Builder for all costs and fees related thereto within thirty (30) days after receipt of written request therefor.
 
4.11 Tree Lawns/Sidewalks. Notwithstanding anything in this LDA to the contrary, Developer shall have no obligation to construct, install, maintain or pay for the maintenance, construction and installation of (i) any landscaping or irrigation for such landscaping behind the curb on any Builder Lot that is to be maintained by the owner of such lot (collectively, “Tree Lawns”), but Developer shall be responsible for constructing and installing the detached sidewalks and ramps (collectively, “Sidewalks”) that are located immediately adjacent to any Builder Lot or on a tract as required by the approved Plans, County, or any other Approving Authority and/or applicable laws as provided in this LDA. Builders shall be responsible for installing any other lead walks, pathways, and driveways and any other flatwork on the Builder Lots. Builder shall install all Tree Lawns on or adjacent to its Builder Lots in accordance with all applicable Plans, requirements, regulations, laws, development codes and building codes of all Approving Authorities and such Tree Lawns shall not be considered part of the Improvements.
 
F-13
 
 
4.12 Soil Hauling. Builder shall be responsible for relocating from the Builder Lots all surplus soil generated during Builder’s construction of structures on the Builder Lots. At the option of the Seller under the Contract, in its sole discretion, the surplus soil shall be transported at Builder’s expense to a site designated by Seller within the Development. If and to the extent that Seller establishes stock pile site within the Property, Seller may modify any such stock pile locations from time to time in Seller’s discretion. At Seller’s request, Builder shall supply copies of any reports or field assessments identifying the material characteristics of the excess soil prior to accepting such soil for fill purposes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Seller does not establish a stock pile site or elects not to accept any surplus soils from Builder, then Builder shall, at its sole expense, find a purchaser or taker or otherwise transport and dispose of such surplus soil upon such terms as it shall desire, but such surplus soil must still be removed from the Property and may not be stockpiled on the Property or within the Development after construction has been completed.
 
5. Costs of Improvements.
 
5.1 Definition of Costs. As used herein, the term “Costs” shall mean all hard and soft costs incurred in connection with the design (including all engineering expenses), construction and installation of the Improvements, including, but not limited to, costs of labor, materials and suppliers, engineering, design and consultant fees and costs, blue printing services, construction staking, demolition, soil amendments or compaction, any processing, plan check or permit fees for the Improvements, engineering services required to obtain a permit for and complete the Improvements, costs of compliance with all applicable laws, costs of insurance required by this LDA, costs of any financial assurances, any corrections, changes or additions to work required by the Approving Authorities or necessitated by site conditions, municipal, state and county taxes imposed in connection with construction of the Improvements, any warranty work, and any other costs incurred in connection with the performance of the obligations of Developer or the Substitute Constructing Party (as applicable) hereunder to complete the Improvements.
 
5.2 Budget. Attached hereto as Exhibit F is an estimate of the Costs to construct the Improvements (the “Budget”). The Costs identified on the Budget are referred to herein as “Budgeted Costs.” Builders shall pay or cause to be paid pursuant to Article 6 below a share of the Budgeted Costs. The costs identified on the Budget are referred to herein as (“Budgeted Costs”). As consideration for the Developer’s performance under this LDA and the construction of the Improvements, Builder shall pay the Deferred Purchase Price which is equal to (i) a share of the Budgeted Costs in the amount of Fifty Four Thousand Dollars ($54,000.00) per Builder Lot plus the Escalator (which based on a total of 190 Builder Lots is equal to $10,260,000.00 plus the Escalator), and (ii) the Builder Cost Overruns, as defined below (collectively, the “Maximum Builder Costs”).
 
5.3 Cost Overruns. Notwithstanding anything in this LDA to the contrary, the Developer shall pay (i) all costs for changes to the Plans or Improvements required by any Approving Authority or to correct any error or defect in the Plans that cause the Costs to exceed the Budgeted Costs, (ii) the costs of all other changes to the Plans or Improvements requested by the Developer that cause the Costs to exceed the Budgeted Costs, and (iii) all other costs and charges that cause the Costs to exceed the Budged Costs (with the exception of Builder Cost Overruns) (collectively, the “Constructing Party Cost Overruns”). The Builder shall immediately pay all costs of changes to the Plans or Improvements requested by Builder that causes the Costs to exceed the Budgeted Costs (“Builder Cost Overruns”) and Builder shall not have any responsibility for Constructing Party Cost Overruns unless such Constructing Party Cost Overruns occur as a result of Builder’s breach of its obligations under this LDA.
 
F-14
 
 
5.4 Accounting. Developer shall keep good and accurate books and records in sufficient detail to allow the Costs to be calculated, which books and records shall be made available for review (upon reasonable prior written notice) by the Parties. Within thirty (30) days after Substantial Completion of the Improvements, the Developer shall deliver to Builder a reasonably detailed final accounting of the Costs.
 
5.5 Progress Reports. Developer shall, no less frequently than once per month, provide Builder with a progress report setting forth the amount of Costs expended to date, a list of Improvements completed, to date, and an estimate by a project manager of Developer of the status of overall completion of the Improvements, in such form as Developer deems reasonably appropriate (“Progress Report”).
 
6. Payment of Costs.
 
6.1 Payment.
 
6.1.1 Payment. Pursuant to the terms of the Contract, Builder shall pay to Developer, as Seller, part of the Purchase Price in cash at each closing (the “Initial Purchase Price”), and pay in accordance with the terms of this LDA a deferred portion of the Purchase Price (“Deferred Purchase Price”) equal to the Maximum Builder Costs (including Builder Cost Overruns, if any) which represents Builder’s share of the Budgeted Costs of the Improvements. After Builder pays the Initial Purchase Price, Builder has no responsibility for payment of any funds in excess of the Maximum Builder Costs. The Deferred Purchase Price is payable to Developer in installments based upon completion of the Improvements that serve each phase of the Builder Lots as follows:
 
(a) Takedown 1 Lots – Phase 1. Phase 1 consists of approximately 50 Lots that are a part of the Takedown 1 Lots as identified on the Concept Plan (the “Phase 1 Lots”). Upon Substantial Completion of the Wet Utilities that serve the Phase 1 Lots in accordance with Section 4.5 above, Builder shall pay the Developer a portion of the Deferred Purchase Price for Phase 1 in the amount of $1,350,000.00 plus the Escalator. Upon Substantial Completion of the Improvements that serve the Phase 1 Lots in accordance with Section 4.5 above, Builder shall pay the Developer the balance of the Deferred Purchase Price in the amount of $1,350,000.00 plus the Escalator.
 
F-15
 
 
(b)  Takedown 1 Lots – Phase 2. Phase 2 consists of approximately 50 Lots that are a part of the Takedown 1 Lots as identified on the Concept Plan (the “Phase 2 Lots”). Upon Substantial Completion of the Wet Utilities that serve the Phase 2 Lots in accordance with Section 4.5 above, Builder shall pay the Developer a portion of the Deferred Purchase Price for Phase 2 in the amount of $1,350,000.00 plus the Escalator. Upon Substantial Completion of the Improvements that serve the Phase 2 Lots in accordance with Section 4.5 above, Builder shall pay the Developer the balance of the Deferred Purchase Price in the amount of $1,350,000.00 plus the Escalator.
 
(c) Takedown 2 Lots – Phase 3. Phase 3 consists of approximately 45 Lots that are a part of the Takedown 2 Lots as identified on the Concept Plan (the “Phase 3 Lots”). Upon Substantial Completion of the Wet Utilities that serve the Phase 3 Lots in accordance with Section 4.5 above, Builder shall pay the Developer a portion of the Deferred Purchase Price for Phase 3 in the amount of $1,215,000.00 plus the Escalator. Upon Substantial Completion of the Improvements that serve the Phase 3 Lots in accordance with Section 4.5 above, Builder shall pay the Developer the balance of the Deferred Purchase Price in the amount of $1,215,000.00 plus the Escalator.
 
(d)  Takedown 2 Lots – Phase 4. Phase 4 consists of approximately 45 Lots that are a part of the Takedown 2 Lots as identified on the Concept Plan (the “Phase 4 Lots”). Upon Substantial Completion of the Wet Utilities that serve the Phase 4 Lots in accordance with Section 4.5 above, Builder shall pay the Developer a portion of the Deferred Purchase Price for Phase 4 in the amount of $1,215,000.00 plus the Escalator. Upon Substantial Completion of the Improvements that serve the Phase 4 Lots in accordance with Section 4.5 above, Builder shall pay the Developer the balance of the Deferred Purchase Price in the amount of $1,215,000.00 plus the Escalator.
 
(e) Escalator. All payments of the Deferred Purchase Price shall be subject to the Escalator as provided in Section 2(b) of the Contract.
 
(f) Invoice. After Substantial Completion is achieved as described above, Builder shall pay the applicable portion of the Deferred Purchase within five (5) business days after an invoice for payment is delivered to Builder by Developer.
 
(g) Definition of Wet Utilities. The Wet Utilities that serve each Phase of the Builder Lots that will trigger the Builder’s payment obligation upon Substantial Completion thereof are identified on Exhibit G.
 
(h) Security for Payment of Deferred Purchase Price - Letter of Credit. In order to secure Builder’s obligation following each Closing to pay the Deferred Purchase Price in accordance with the terms of the Contract and the payment obligations set forth above in this Section 6.1, at each Closing, Builder shall deliver to Title Company, acting as escrow agent, a letter of credit issued by HomeAmerican Mortgage Corporation in the form attached to the Contract as Exhibit G and to this LDA as Exhibit I (the “Letter of Credit”) and in an amount equal to the sum of the Deferred Purchase Price for all of the Lots acquired by Builder at such Closing plus the estimated Escalator thereon in an amount equal to $1,350.00 per Lot acquired at the Second Closing with respect to the Letter of Credit delivered at the Second Closing. Title Company shall hold and maintain the Letter of Credit pursuant to this LDA and the Contract in an escrow account established by Title Company for the benefit of Developer and Builder (pursuant to the terms of an escrow agreement to be agreed upon by Developer, Builder and Title Company during the Due Diligence Period). The Letter of Credit for each Closing shall remain in place until the final payment of the Deferred Purchase Price applicable to such Closing has been made to the Developer following Substantial Completion of the Improvements which serve the Lots acquired by Builder at such Closing. If the Letter of Credit is scheduled to expire prior to the Substantial Completion of all of such Lots, and Builder has not renewed the Letter of Credit at least fifteen (15) days prior to the expiration date thereof, Title Company is authorized and directed to draw down the full amount of the Letter of Credit and deposit such funds in escrow to be used solely for the payment of any unpaid Deferred Purchase Price. The Letter of Credit may provide that it shall be reduced from time to time to the extent of payments of the Deferred Purchase Price in Good Funds made by Purchaser for Improvements in accordance with the terms, including the payment schedule, set forth in this LDA and the Contract. The Letter of Credit for each Closing shall be returned to Builder, together with an executed reduction certificate reducing the face amount thereof to $0.00, upon payment in full of the Deferred Purchaser Price in Good Funds for all of the Lots in such Closing. Failure by Builder to pay any portion of the Deferred Purchase Price when the same shall become due and payable, provided that at such failure continues for a period of ten days after the delivery of written notice thereof from Developer to Builder, shall entitle Developer to enforce the collection of the delinquent Deferred Purchase Price by drawing upon the Letter of Credit or having the Title Company draw upon the Letter of Credit, and in either event the funds so drawn shall be paid to Developer as payment of any unpaid Deferred Purchase Price and such failure to pay shall be deemed cured. If Developer or Title Company is unable to draw upon the Letter of Credit, Developer may protect and enforce its rights under this LDA pertaining to payment of the Deferred Purchase Price by (i) such suit, action, or special proceedings as Developer shall deem appropriate, including, without limitation, any proceedings for the specific performance of any covenant or agreement contained in this LDA or the Contract or the enforcement of any other appropriate legal or equitable remedy, or for the recovery of actual damages (excluding consequential, punitive damages or similar damages) caused by Builder’s failure to pay the Deferred Purchase Price, including reasonable attorneys' fees, and (ii) enforcing Developer’s lien rights set forth in this LDA. Developer’s remedies are non-exclusive.

7. Expedited Dispute Resolution.
 
7.1 Disputes Related to Material Changes, Draw Requests and Punchlist Items. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, disputes related to Material Changes, any Builder Punchlist item or matter, objections to Construction Contracts, determination of Substantial Completion or the amount of or responsibility for Constructing Party Cost Overruns or Builder Cost Overruns (“Expedited Disputes”) shall all be resolved by an independent, impartial third party qualified to resolve such disputes as determined by the Parties involved in the Expedited Dispute (“Informal Arbitrator”). If such Parties cannot agree on an Informal Arbitrator, then the Parties involved shall select one (1) registered engineer and the Builder shall select one (1) registered engineer and the engineers so selected by such Parties shall promptly select an independent, impartial third party qualified to act as the Informal Arbitrator and resolve the Expedited Dispute. Within five (5) business days after a Party delivers a Dispute Notice, the Developer and the Builder shall deliver to the Informal Arbitrator a written statement of how such Party believes the Expedited Dispute should be resolved, together with reasonable supporting documentation of such position (“Resolution Notice”). Within ten (10) business days after receipt of Resolution Notices from both such Parties, the Informal Arbitrator shall approve one (1) of the Parties’ Resolution Notice and shall deliver written notice of such approval to each Party. The decision of the Informal Arbitrator shall be binding on all Parties with respect to the applicable Expedited Dispute. All Parties shall timely cooperate with the Informal Arbitrator in rendering his or her decision. The party that is not the prevailing party in the resolution of any Expedited Dispute shall promptly pay the Informal Arbitrator’s fee, and the prevailing party’s other fees and costs of any such expedited dispute resolution process and reasonable attorney’s fees. The term “prevailing party” means the party who successfully obtains substantially all of the relief sought by such party or is successful in denying substantially all of the relief sought by the other party. The Parties acknowledge that there is a benefit to the Parties in having work done as expeditiously as possible and that there is a need for a streamlined method of making decisions described in this Section so that work is not delayed. A Party and shall not be entitled to recover from any other Party exemplary, punitive, special, indirect, consequential or any other damages other than actual damages (unless the Informal Arbitrator finds intentional abuse or frustration of the arbitration process) in connection with an Expedited Dispute.
 
F-17
 
 
7.2 Standards of Conduct. The Parties agree that with respect to all aspects of the expedited dispute resolution process contained herein they will conduct themselves in a manner intended to assure the integrity and fairness of that process. To that end, if an Expedited Dispute is submitted to expedited dispute resolution process, the Parties agree that they will not contact or communicate with the Informal Arbitrator who was appointed with respect to any Expedited Dispute either ex parte or outside of the contacts and communications contemplated by this Article 7, and the Parties further agree that they will cooperate in good faith in the production of evidence in a prompt and efficient manner to permit the review and evaluation thereof by the other Parties.
 
8. Progress Meetings. From and after the date of this LDA and until Substantial Completion of the Improvements, the Parties shall cause their designated representatives to meet within five (5) business days following a request from a Party regarding the status of construction of the Improvements, scheduling and coordination issues, engineering and design issues, and other similar issues. Any Party may change its designated representative under this LDA at any time by written notice to the other parties. The initial designated representative for each Party for the purpose of this Section shall be the individual listed on each Party’s respective signature page attached hereto. All inquiries, requests, instructions, authorizations, and other communications with respect to the matters covered by this LDA shall be made to such representatives. Any Party may without further or independent inquiry, assume and rely at all times that the representatives of the other parties designated hereunder have the power and authority to make decisions on behalf of such other parties, to communicate such decisions to the other Party and to bind such Party by his acts and deeds, unless otherwise notified in writing by the Party designating the representative. Any Party may change its representative under this LDA at any time by written notice to the other Parties.
 
9. Builder’s Stormwater Permit Responsibilities. During any Overex construction activities performed on the Builder Lots by Builder and following Substantial Completion of the Improvements and prior to Builder engaging in any construction activities upon the Builder Lots, Builder shall obtain from the Colorado Department of Public Health, Water Quality Control Division, a Colorado Construction Stormwater Discharge Permit issued to Builder with respect to the Builder Lots. No fewer than five (5) business days prior to the initiation of Overex or construction activities on any Builder Lot, Builder shall deliver a copy of at least one (1) of the following documents to Developer:
 
F-18
 
 
9.1.1 Such valid Colorado Construction Stormwater Discharge Permit for the Builder Lots;

To the extent required by the County, Builder shall also obtain a Stormwater Quality Permit issued to Builder by the County for the Builder Lots. Builder shall be responsible to obtain and maintain any State of Colorado dewatering permits if required for Builder’s further construction within the Builder Lots. If requested by Developer, Builder shall execute a Notice of Property Conveyance and Change in Responsibility for the Colorado Discharge Permit held by Developer or an affiliated entity with respect to the Property. In all cases, Builder shall obtain from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment Water Quality Control Division, a Notice of Property Conveyance and Change in Responsibility on a form acceptable to the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment Water Quality Control Division executed by Builder, for the Colorado Stormwater Discharge Permit held by Developer with respect to the Builder Lots prior to any construction by Builder on the Builder Lots.
 
9.2 Developer’s Stormwater Permit responsibilities. Developer shall obtain and comply with all necessary permits related to stormwater and erosion control from all Approving Authorities, in relation to the construction, repair, and maintenance of the Improvements.

11. Attorneys’ Fees. Except as provided in Section 7.1, should any action be brought in connection with this LDA, including, without limitation, actions based on contract, tort or statute, the prevailing Party in such action shall be awarded all costs and expenses incurred in connection with such action, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. The provisions of this Section shall survive the expiration or termination of this LDA.
 
12. Further Acts. Each of the Parties hereto shall execute and deliver all such documents and perform all such acts as reasonably necessary, from time to time, to carry out the matters contemplated by this LDA.
 
13. No Partnership; Third Parties. It is not intended by this LDA to, and nothing contained in this LDA shall, create any partnership, joint venture or other arrangement among the Parties hereto. No term or provision of this LDA is intended to, or shall, be for the benefit of any person, firm, organization or corporation not a Party hereto, and no such other person, firm, organization or corporation shall have any right or cause of action hereunder.
 
14. Entire Agreement; Headings for Convenience Only; Not to be Construed Against Drafter; No Implied Waiver. This LDA and all other written agreements among the Parties constitute the entire agreement among the Parties hereto pertaining to the subject matter hereof. No change or addition is to be made to this LDA except by written amendment executed by the Parties. The headings, captions and titles contained in this LDA are intended for convenience of reference only and are of no meaning in the interpretation or effect of this LDA. This LDA shall not be construed more strictly against one (1) Party than another merely by virtue of the fact that it may have been initially drafted by one (1) of the Parties or its counsel, since all Parties have contributed substantially and materially to the preparation hereof. No failure by a Party to insist upon the strict performance of any term, covenant or provision contained in this LDA, no failure by a Party to exercise any right or remedy under this LDA, and no acceptance of full or partial payment owed to a Party during the continuance of any default by the other Party(ies), shall constitute a waiver of any such term, covenant or provision, or a waiver of any such right or remedy, or a waiver of any such default unless such waiver is made in writing by the Party to be bound thereby. Any waiver of a breach of a term or a condition of this LDA shall not prevent a subsequent act, which would have originally constituted a default under this LDA, from having all the force and effect of a default.
 
15. Governing Law. This LDA is entered into in Colorado and shall be construed and interpreted under the law of the State of Colorado without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law which would result in the application of any law other than the law of the State of Colorado.
 
F-21
 
 
16. Severability. If any provision of this LDA is declared void or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed from this LDA and shall not affect the enforceability of the remaining provisions of this LDA.
 
17. Assignment; Binding Effect. This LDA shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Neither Builder or Developer may assign any of its rights or obligations under this LDA without the prior written consent of the other Party(ies), which consent may be withheld in each Party’s sole and absolute discretion; provided, however, that:
 
17.1 Builder may assign, without consent, its rights under this LDA in full, but not in part: (i) to a third party which acquires all of Builder’s Builder Lots, or (ii) to an entity that controls, is controlled by, or under common control with, Builder; provided further, however that Developer approves the form of assignment, which approval shall be in Developer’s reasonable discretion; and
 
17.2 Developer may assign, without consent (but with prior notice to Builder), its rights under this LDA: (i) to an entity that controls, is controlled by, or under common control with, Developer; (ii) to any entity that acquires all or substantially all of the Developer’s interests in the Builder Lots which Seller reasonably believes has the financial ability and experience to perform Seller’s obligations under this LDA.
 
18. Counterparts; Copies of Signatures. This LDA may be executed in two (2) or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one (1) and the same instrument. The signature pages from one (1) or more counterparts may be removed from such counterparts and such signature pages all attached to a single instrument so that the signatures of all Parties may be physically attached to a single document. This LDA may be executed and delivered by facsimile or by electronic mail in portable document format (.pdf) or similar means and delivery of the signature page by such method will be deemed to have the same effect as if the original signature had been delivered to the other party. Upon execution of this LDA by Developer and Builder, Developer shall provide a fully executed copy of this LDA to Builder for its records.
 
19. Time of the Essence. Time is of the essence for performance or satisfaction of all requirements, conditions, or other provisions of this LDA, subject to any specific time extensions set forth herein.
 
20. Computation of Time Periods. All time periods referred to in this LDA shall include all Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, unless the period of time specifies business days. If the date to perform any act or give a notice with respect to this LDA shall fall on a Saturday, Sunday or national or state holiday, the act or notice may be timely performed on the next succeeding day which is not a Saturday, Sunday or a national or state holiday.
 
21. Remedies.
 
F-22
 
 
21.1 Except as hereinafter provided with regard to Expedited Disputes and the self-help remedy under Section 4.6, if any Party is in default of any of its obligations under this LDA beyond any applicable notice or cure periods, the other Party(ies) may avail itself to any rights and remedies available at law and equity, but may only recover its actual, out-of-pocket damages (excluding any incidental, consequential, speculative, punitive or lost profits damages) incurred as a result of such default. For Expedited Disputes, the sole and exclusive remedy of the Parties is set forth in Section 7 of this LDA, and for Developer Defaults, the sole and exclusive remedy of the Parties is set forth in Section 4.6 of this LDA.
 
21.2 In addition to the remedies permitted under Section 21.1, any claim by Developer against Builder for breach of Builder’s obligation hereunder to pay of any portion of the Deferred Purchase Price, together with simple interest at the rate of 12% per annum from the date such payment is due and payable, and all costs and expenses including reasonable attorneys' fees awarded to Developer in enforcing any payment in any suit or proceeding under this LDA, shall constitute a lien ("Lien") against the applicable Phase of Builder Lots to which the payment pertains until paid, effective upon the recording of a notice of lien with respect thereto in the Office of the Clerk and Recorder of the County; provided, however, that any such Lien shall be subject and subordinate to (i) liens for taxes and other public charges which by applicable law are expressly made superior, and (ii) all liens recorded in the Office of the Clerk and Recorder of the County prior to the date of recordation of said notice of lien. All liens recorded subsequent to the recordation of the notice of lien described herein shall be junior and subordinate to the Lien. The notice of lien will be signed and acknowledged by Developer and will contain the following: (a) a statement of all amounts due and payable; (b) a description sufficient for identification of the applicable Phase of Builder Lots to which the notice relates; (c) the name of the Builder as owner of such Builder Lots; and (d) the name and address of the Developer causing the notice to be recorded. Developer has the right to enforce the Lien by foreclosing the Lien against the applicable Phase of Builder Lots under the prevailing Colorado law relating to the foreclosure of realty mortgages. Upon the timely curing by the defaulting Builder of any default for which a notice of lien was recorded, the Developer shall record an appropriate release of such notice of lien and Lien. The sale or transfer of a Builder Lot by Builder does not affect the Lien.
 
22. Jury Waiver. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE PARTIES HEREBY KNOWINGLY, INTENTIONALLY AND VOLUNTARILY, WITH AND UPON THE ADVICE OF COMPETENT COUNSEL, WAIVE, RELINQUISH AND FOREVER FORGO THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING BASED UPON, ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THE PROVISIONS OF THIS LDA.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Mill Levy Cap may be increased or decreased as to all taxable property in the District to reflect any legislation implementing changes in the ratio of actual valuation to assessed valuation for residential real property, pursuant to Article X, Section 3(1)(b) of the Colorado Constitution, so that, to the extent possible, the actual tax revenues generated by the District imposed mill levy, as adjusted, are neither diminished nor enhanced as a result of such changes (“Gallagher Adjustment”). For purposes of the foregoing, a change in the ratio of actual valuation shall be deemed to be a change in the method of calculating assessed valuation; (3) after the Effective Date, Seller shall not cause, agree to or acquiesce to any change, modification, alteration, termination or extension to any of the documents which govern the Metro Districts, if the same would have a material impact on Purchaser or its Lots without the prior written consent of Purchaser, which will not be unreasonably withheld; and (4) if at any time Purchaser is required to pay any amounts to the Metro Districts other than the mill levies as set forth above and the system development fees addressed in Section 16 of the Contract and except for assessments and/or charges for covenant control and common area and amenity maintenance, repair and operations, then Seller shall pay such amounts on behalf of Purchaser or reimburse Purchaser within thirty (30) days of demand for such amounts if then paid by Purchaser. This provision shall survive the Closing and be enforceable by Purchaser by all legal and equitable means, including without limitation specific performance.

10.           Marketing Sales Activities. From and after the First Closing, Purchaser may construct and maintain upon portions of the Development owned by Purchaser such facilities, activities, and things as, in Purchaser’s reasonable opinion, may be required, convenient, or incidental to the construction or sale of Lots and single family homes located thereon. Such permitted facilities, activities, and things shall include, without limitation, business offices, signs, flags (whether hung from flag poles or attached to a structure), model Lots, model homes, parking lots, sales offices, sales trailers, construction offices, construction trailers, holding or sponsoring special events, and exterior lighting features or displays, subject to compliance with all laws (collectively “Marketing Activities”). In addition, from and after the First Closing, Purchaser shall have the right to place signage on those portions of the Development owned by Seller that have been identified by Seller as appropriate locations for such signage, and subject to reasonable rules and regulations established by Seller for the homebuilders within the Development. If, following the Effective Date of this Amendment, the Seller establishes a signage program for the Development, the Parties will meet and agree in good faith upon the terms of such program, and the Parties will enter into an amendment to the Contract to reflect the terms of such program. This provision shall survive closing.

b. 
the Joint Improvement Memorandum;
 
c.
