What are "3rd party reports" costs?

Prior to closing the client is responsible, at client expense, for any and all underwriting fees, reports, appraisals and any other type of third party compilation reports needed to close the project.

How much is the Bond Fee?

Bond fee is typically between 1% - 3% cash against total project costs. In our experience, the fee is rarely more than 3%. Third party fees are the responsibility of the client.

Is the Bond Fee refundable?

The initial $3500 retainer fee is refundable (less any fees) if the bond consulting company refuses or declines the project. All other fees are accessed by third parties and may be subject to their terms and conditions.

What is the Bond program process like?

  1. After the client has agreed to working with Grand Elevation Group, the bond consulting company will issue their Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that outlines the terms.
  2. The client gives us their verbal request for the engagement agreement based on their satisfaction with the MOU and signs the agreement.
  3. The client pays the initial Bond fee to the consulting company.
  4. The bond consultants perform their phase one work which includes due diligence and assistance with the preparation of a package to be used for marketing of the bonds.
  5. The bond company then forwards the materials to their securities attorney for review.
  6. After review a conference call is scheduled between the client, the attorney and the principal of the bond consulting company.
  7. The client will engage the securities attorney and complete forms needed to proceed to the next step.
  8. The securities attorney will then prepare the offering plan to be sent to the FINRA broker deals for marketing to sell the bonds.

* The 144A bond program is a 1990 SEC rule that facilitates the resale of privately placed securities that are without public SEC registration. The rule was designed to develop a more liquid and efficient institutional resale market for unregistered securities.
