Experience and Financing (up to 50 points)
Neighborhood Benefit (up to 10 points)
Local Person or Business (10 points)
To receive points for Neighborhood Benefit, respondents must meet with neighborhood representatives and introduce their proposed project.

Project Completion Requirements
Buyer will be required to complete the project within 1 year of sale. Buyer will accept a Quit Claim Deed at closing with the following deed restriction. Buyer will also sign a reconveyance Deed at closing in the event the project is not completed.
This property is conveyed pursuant to a Purchase & Development Agreement between GCLBA and Grantee (the "Agreement") and on the express condition that Grantee fulfill all the terms and conditions applicable to Grantee set forth in the Agreement. If Grantee fails to fulfill all the terms of the Agreement applicable to Grantee, GCLBA will have the right to reconvey the property back to its ownership which will be evidenced by the recording of a deed to that effect. Upon Grantee fulfilling all the terms and conditions applicable to Grantee set forth in the Agreement, GCLBA will record a release of interest (a "Release of Interest").
Until a Release of Interest is recorded, Grantee is restricted from transferring or encumbering this property without the prior written consent of GCLBA. If, prior to a Release of Interest being recorded, Grantee transfers or encumbers this property without the prior written consent of GCLBA, GCLBA will have the right to reconvey the property back to its ownership by the recording of a reconveyance deed.
5/50 Tax Capture Disclaimer
Buyers seeking certain tax abatements or lot combinations that conflict with the land bank’s 5/50 tax capture may have to make an additional payment to the Genesee County Land Bank. After a Michigan land bank conveys property to a non-tax-exempt entity, the land bank receives 50% of taxes collected on that property for five years, known as a 5/50 (P.A. 260 & 261). The Assessor’s office places properties sold by a land bank on a specific tax roll to process the tax capture. However, the Assessor’s office also uses specific tax rolls for other abatements such as the Brownfield. Since the State of Michigan does not allow a property to be on two specific tax rolls at the same time, GCLBA buyers need a 5/50 waiver from the GCLBA before seeking applicable tax abatements and lot combinations. If buyers seek a waiver, the GCLBA requests payment of the estimated five-year tax capture amount upfront.
