DEVELOPER 1% TRANSFER FEE - released/discharged

Based on this Declaration, a company named Covenant Clearinghouse, LLC was collecting a 1% Transfer Fee from some homeowners when they sold their homes. Covenant Clearinghouse, LLC has now filed a Release of this Declaration stating, “the real property identified in the Declaration… is hereby RELEASED, EXONERATED and DISCHARGED from all claims and obligations” in the Declaration.
