                                             The closings should be completed on Lots 18 and 1223.  It was noted to the general manager that the closing costs for Lots sold by FII should be at the expense of the buyers – not FII.  (The only closing cost to FII should be 1) ensuring that in the case of privacy lots that the deeds are properly prepared to reflect the building restrictions, and 2) preparing the note for lots financed by FII).

                                             The sale of Lot 1331 has been posted for the required length of time, and no competing bids have been received.  It was noted that the closing costs should be at the expense of the buyer.  (Again FII cost should be limited to ensuring that the deed restricts building).
