A complete list can be found last https://www.rhove.com/legal. Further, in order to be eligible for the closing cost credit or real estate commission rebate credit outlined herein, you must use of one of our actively participating real estate brokerage or mortgage lender vendor partners, in your acquisition of a new home.

You acknowledge reviewing the said agreement prior to executing this Agreement.
Home Purchase Credit: Home Purchase Credits are earned in monthly increments as an eligible participant every month that you make contributions to your Rhove Account under the account agreement. If you close on the purchase of a home and use a real estate agent as your buyer’s side agent from one of our real estate broker Vendor Partners, within 365 days after your last contribution deposit under Rhove’s Fiduciary Deposit Account Agreement, then you become a Qualified Homebuyer. As a Qualified Homebuyer, you can redeem your Home Purchase Credits to receive an equivalent amount of Buyer Rebate of Commission credits, not to exceed the lesser of fifteen percent (15%) of the commission payable to the Qualified Homebuyer’s real estate agent or two thousand dollars ($2,000) on the settlement statement at closing. The Rebate of Commission credit is based on a standard 3% real estate agent commission. If for some reason the buyer’s agent commission is lower than the standard, the credit will be adjusted and lowered proportionally. Any such credit given is provided solely by the Vendor Partner, and is in no manner attributable to a discount or rebate provided by us, and we are not receiving any portion or compensation from the Vendor Partner related to such commission rebate. Any commission rebate, and the corresponding credit on the Settlement Statement is subject to both federal lending and settlement laws, as well as the laws of the state in which the property is located, which may limit or affect the amount of, or the disclosure of, such credit.
Home Loan Credit: Home Loan Credits are earned in monthly increments as an eligible participant every month that you make contributions to your Rhove Account under the account agreement. If you close on a purchase-money mortgage loan used to purchase a home by and through one of our mortgage lender Vendor Partners, within 365 days after your last contribution deposit under Rhove’s Fiduciary Deposit Account Agreement, then you become a Qualified Homebuyer. As a Qualified Homebuyer, you can redeem your Home Loan Credits to receive an equivalent amount of closing cost credits, not to exceed the lesser of one-half percent (0.5%) of the mortgage loan value or two thousand dollars ($2,000). This credit applies towards loan-program qualified closing expenses, including escrow items for taxes and insurance, pre-paid expenses, home appraisal, and other customary costs associated with the mortgage or home closing. Any such closing cost credit given is provided solely by the Vendor Partner, and is in no manner attributable to a discount or rebate provided by us, and we are not receiving any portion or compensation from the Vendor Partner related to such closing cost lender credit. Any lender credit shown on the Settlement Statement is subject to both federal lending and settlement laws, as well as the laws of the state in which the property is located, which may limit or affect the amount of, or the disclosure of, such credit.
Anti-Inducement: You acknowledge that the Home Purchase Credit or Home Loan Credit is not an inducement to have you enter into any specific real estate contract for the purchase of any particular home. Each purchase contract offer, and each home considered for purchase, must be evaluated by you independently of such credit, and said credit doesn’t increase or decrease based on any contractual terms related to the purchase of a home. You further understand that the Home Purchase Credit or Home Loan Credit is not provided by us, and therefore is not an inducement to choose any particular Vendor Partner. You may choose whomever you want to provide your real estate brokerage or mortgage loan, and we are only notifying you that our Vendor Partners have agreed to offer you such a Credit, without receiving any compensation for any perceived referral.
Commencement, Revision, and Termination: These Terms and Conditions for The Program are effective on April 1, 2019, and revised December 2019. The Program may terminated or revised by us at any time, provided that we provide you written notice before the revision or cancellation shall take effect. In the event The Program is terminated, any desired extension or honoring of a Home Purchase Credit or Home Loan Credit must be negotiated with the Vendor Partner, and is not our responsibility.
Fees: At this time, Rhove does not charge any services fees for the services it provides. However, we reserves the right to charge Service Fees at a later date by providing you with 30 days advance notice, and where such fees are allowed by law.
