Megastar Closing Guarantee Program Disclosure
MegaStar Financial Corp. (“MegaStar”) takes pride in the four promises all MegaStar employees have committed to since 1999. One of the promises is closing on time. Should a closing be delayed due to Megastar, MegaStar will pay both the Borrower and the Seller listed in the Purchase Agreement, individually, an amount equal to the Earnest Money Deposit of Borrower not to exceed $5,000, subject to the following terms and conditions:
a. The MegaStar Closing Guarantee Program only applies to Purchase Transactions on qualified loan programs for the MegaStar Closing Guarantee Program.
II. Certificate Acknowledgment
a. Borrower must receive a MegaStar Closing Guarantee Program Certificate, signed by a MegaStar Corporate Underwriter, acknowledging that Borrower is eligible for the MegaStar Closing Guarantee Program.
III. The Guarantee
a. The MegaStar Closing Guarantee Program provides that if MegaStar does not close the loan “On-Time,” MegaStar will pay the Borrower and the Seller, individually, an amount equal to the Earnest Money Deposit of Borrower not to exceed $5,000.
i. For example, if the Earnest Money Deposit ranges from $1.00-$5,000 and MegaStar does not close the loan on-time, MegaStar will pay the Borrower and the Seller, individually, an amount equal to the Earnest Money Deposit.
ii. For example, if the Earnest Money Deposit ranges from $5,001-$10,000+ and MegaStar does not close the loan on-time, MegaStar will pay the Borrower a maximum of $5,000 and the Seller a maximum of $5,000.
b. This Guarantee only applies when the Earnest Money Deposit is deemed forfeited due to MegaStar’s performance specific to credit approval.
IV. On-Time Requirement
a. “On-Time,” for purposes of the MegaStar Closing Guarantee Program, shall mean that MegaStar closes Borrower’s loan by the closing date specified in the Purchase Agreement only if MegaStar receives a complete application from Borrower no less than 21 calendar days prior to the closing date specified in the Purchase Agreement.

viii. Delays due to third-parties not on behalf of Borrower and/or Seller and/or MegaStar;

xvi. If any required condition to close specified in the Purchase Agreement is not completed by either Borrower or Seller, e.g. construction, repairs, replacements, lien clearance , government inspections, etc.;
xvii. If the sale of Borrower’s primary residence is a contingency specified in the Purchase Agreement and which is not cleared prior to or at closing;
