STANDARDS COMMITMENT FORM



As a commitment to membership in the Dearborn County Home Builders Association, every builder, remodeler and interim builder member (hereinafter referred to as "member") shall sign and agree to the following conditions:

1. The Indiana Quality Assurance Standards manual must be provided to every customer at the time of contract signing for each new construction and/or remodeling project undertaken by the member.

2. All contracts must include language incorporating the Standards as part of each new construction and/or remodeling project undertaken by the member. (Recommended contract language included in attached 1a and 1b).

3. A third party dispute resolution mechanism, selected by the member to handle disputes arising from the Standards shall be part of all contracts for construction and/or remodeling projects undertaken by the member.

4. The member understands that non-compliance with these commitments unresolved dispute resolutions, or a large number of complaints against the member may require that the member address the Indiana Quality Assurance Builder Standards Review Committee of the Association. The Committee may recommend that the Board of Directors impose sanctions on the member. Those potential sanctions may include, but are not limited to eliminating membership privileges and/or expulsion from the Association.

5. Notwithstanding the above Section 1, with respect to remodeling projects, to the extent practical for the given scope of a remodeling project, the member shall provide a complete Quality Assurance Builder Standards manual (hereinafter referred to as "manual") to each customer and include the Standards into the contract for the project. If, due to the limited scope of the remodeling project, the member deems it not practical to provide a manual to the customer and/or not include the Standards in the contract, the member understands that they do so at their own risk and will hold the Association harmless from any legal action taken against the member.

6. Notwithstanding the above Section 5, with respect to remodeling projects, the member shall comply with all Standards applicable to the project, regardless of having given the customer a manual and/or included in the Standards into the contract for the project. In addition, member agrees to provide a manual to any customer requesting one regardless of the extent or nature of the project.

Finally, with respect to remodeling projects, it is understood that the decision to not provide a manual to their customer will not necessarily be the basis by which a complaint and determination regarding adherence to the Standards' commitment will be reviewed. A review of member's membership in accordance with the Standards' commitment will predominantly be based on that member's adherence to the Standards.

I have read and understand, and agree to the above described commitment, including all exhibits as a part of my membership in the Dearborn County Home Builders Association. This commitment is valid until written notification is given by either party to cancel my membership.
