buildeRs buZZ BY Nick GreeN Green's Plumbing and Heating President, LRBA I hope this fall season finds everyone busy enough to sustain through the winter! Because I am waiting for our baby to be born soon, I missed the last BAM Board, so I have nothing to report. There are several articles you will want to read in our newsletter, especially the benefits of being a member of LRBA, which brings me to the point that our association needs members to continue to grow. There are members that will be retiring, or have closed their business and we need to increase our membership, not see it decline. The list is unlimited, bankers that do mortgages, title companies, attorneys that work with builders, heating, plumbing, roofers, landscapers, the list goes on and on. If you are doing business with someone that is not a member, ask them to join and tell them why you are a member. Check out the dates of the continuing education classes and mark the dates on your calendar. Members get a discount from LRBA over non-members. See you at the meeting on October 10th.

MEETING FOR SEPTEMBER WAS HELD ON THE 12TH and about 40 people attended. Wayne Peterson from the Builders Group was our host for the evening, providing dinner and a talk on Fall Protection. Remi Stone from BAM was also there to talk about the new tax laws.

OUR NEXT MEETING IS SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 10TH. ARVIG IS OUR HOST FOR THE EVENING. The meeting will be held at the Holiday Inn. Social is at 6:30 with the meeting starting at 7:00 p.m. They are providing the food for the evening. Please RSVP! Arvig is a member of our Association, so let’s show our appreciation with a great turn out.

Brenda Eidenschink

Hello members; What a beautiful time of the year! This is my favorite season; I wish it would stay like this all year. We are very busy at the office as we are in the process of getting information out for our 3 continuing education classes/expos. In the next few weeks, we will be sending out information about our Electrical Continuing Education on Jan 17th; our Plumbing Continuing Education on Jan 23rd and our Builders Continuing Education on Jan 31st. There will also be Expo’s during these classes. If you would like to have a display table at one of these, please let us know and we can get the information out to you. SAVE THE DATES. We just had our open house and some of you stopped by to see our new office. If you didn’t get a chance to do so, please stop in if you are driving by. We will also be starting on the Home and Sport Show registration forms so watch for them to come out. The show is March 22nd & 23rd. Mark your calendars. A big Thank You to Bryan Schoenberger for hanging our sign and Ed Lillis and Ray for putting together our filing cabinets and our shelving unit. Sharon and I could not figure them out… We had our first meeting of the year and we were really pleased with the turn out. Our next month’s meeting will be sponsored by Arvig. They will be talking about security systems and sponsoring the food for that evening. We hope to see you there. See you in a few weeks. Brenda

New Radon Disclosures Required for Minnesota Residential Sales By Joseph G. Springer, Chair, Construction Group Fredrikson & Byron, P.A. The newly enacted Minnesota Radon Awareness Act becomes effective January 1, 2014. The Act requires sellers of residential real property in Minnesota to make certain disclosures pertaining to the seller’s knowledge of radon levels within the residential dwelling. Disclosure is required for both newly-constructed and existing homes. Failure to comply with the detailed requirements of the Act may subject sellers to civil liability and could possibly lead the invalidation of the transfer by a court. Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas produced by the natural decay of uranium in nearly all soils. When inhaled, the radon gas releases radioactive particles that can damage the cells that line the lungs. Long-term exposure to radon gas can lead to lung cancer. High levels of radon exist in nearly every state in the United States, including Minnesota. In fact, according to the Minnesota Department of Health, radon levels that pose a significant risk to human health can be found in one in three homes in Minnesota. Nearly 80% of Minnesota counties are rated as “high radon zones.” The Minnesota Radon Awareness Act applies only to transfers of residential real property. Residential real property for purposes of the Act includes single family homes and units in Common Interest Communities, such as condominiums and town homes. The Act applies to most agreements and contracts that will result in the transfer of title of these properties. This includes transfer of title by sale, exchange, deed, contract for deed, a lease with an option to purchase, or any other purchase option. However, there are exceptions to when the Act applies. For instance, the Act does not apply to transfers by gift, foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure, transfers upon death, and transfers made between certain family members or

DOLI UPDATE: The LRBA receives updates from the Department of Labor & Industry. You can go online to the sites shown and read all the details. A new edition of the CCLD Review newsletter is now available at www.dli.mn.gov/ccld/review.asp The CCLD Review is a publication of the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. Its purpose is to inform construction and code professionals about the purpose, plans and progress of the Construction Codes and Licensing Division. It is sent to those with an interest in the construction, design, inspection and related fields in Minnesota. Some of the stories in this edition include: • Legislative changes affect construction codes • Plumbing plan review and inspection requirements • Plumbing handouts available online • Two CCLD seminars scheduled for fall ’13

between spouses resulting from a divorce decree or settlement agreement. The Act requires that before signing an agreement to sell or transfer residential real property, the seller must make certain disclosures, in writing, to the buyer. The seller must disclose any knowledge that the seller has of radon concentrations within the dwelling, including any records or reports that the seller has pertaining to radon concentrations. The disclosure must include: • Whether radon testing has been performed. • A description of any known radon concentrations. • A description of any mitigation or remediation efforts taken to reduce radon concentrations within the home. • If a radon mitigation system has been installed in the home, a description of the system and any relevant documentation. • A “Radon Warning Statement,” that includes the specific language provided in the statute. The seller must also provide the buyer with a copy of the Minnesota Department of Health publication, Radon in Real Estate Transactions. Notably, the Act does not require or mandate radon testing within the residence. The consequences for failing to comply with the requirements of the Act can be serious. If a buyer is injured by a failure to make a required disclosure and the seller is aware of material facts about radon concentrations in the home, the buyer may bring a civil action against the seller to recover damages and other relief. This action must be brought within two years after the date of the transfer. Also, although the Act provides that the transfer will not be invalidated solely for failure to make the required disclosures, the statute leaves open the possibility that a court may invalidate the transfer on this basis. Whether courts will actually do so is uncertain, and will likely require further clarification by the judicial system or the legislature

SuMMARy OF OuR RENEGOTIATED CONTRACT WITH VERIzON Employees Retain 18% Savings if Enrolled in Paperless Billing

JACKPOT DRAWING WINNERS WILL BE HELD AGAIN STARTING IN SEPTEMBER SPONSORS FOR THE DRAWING NEXT YEAR ARE MIDWEST BANK AND THE BUILDERS GROUP. $40.00 A MONTH WILL BE GIVEN OUT, IF YOUR NAME IS CALLED AND YOU ARE THERE.

JACKPOT WINNER!

The Jackpot winner for September was Tom Crowell – Crowell Construction. Have fun with the $40.00 Tom.

Dear NPP Member, We recently renegotiated our contract with Verizon, and wanted to give you details about it. Of note, there is a slight change to the structure of the employee personal lines, as well as a few changes to the data and text portions of the wireless plan. The most significant change to the contract is that employees will need to enroll in paperless billing to continue receiving 18% off their personal lines. Signing up for online billing is easy, and we have attached a document you can share with your employees which provides instructions on how to do so. The basics are straightforward, though… • Sign in to My Verizon. • Hover over "My Verizon." • Under "My Bill" click "Paperless Billing." Please encourage your employees to sign up for paperless billing. If the employee doesn’t enroll by June 7, the discount will drop to 15%. Once they do sign up, they will again receive the maximum 18% discount for which they are eligible. If your employees aren't already receiving an employee discount, they can go to verizonwireless.com/getdiscounts to register. Following are more specifics of our updated Verizon contract: Corporate Liable Plans: • 22% off corporate lines. • Data for 3G/4G devices is now $20 for 3GB. Data for 4G smartphones is now $30 for 5GB with Mobile Hotspot. The previous unlimited data feature will be grandfathered onto the account until a price plan change or device upgrade occurs. • New Text - $250 text messages package at no charge - $5 for 500 texts - $10 for Unlimited - Does not include picture or video (.25 per picture/video message additional) • Machine to Machine plans added to portfolio Employee Personal Line Plans: To continue to receive the 18% employee discount, employee must be enrolled in paperless billing. If not enrolled in paperless billing, the discount will be lowered to 15% If employees are enrolled in paperless billing by June 7 they will not see any change on their bills. If they are not enrolled by June 7, the discount will drop to 15%. The 3% will be added to the account when they enroll in paperless billing. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly at 800.810.3909 or e-mail customerservice@mynpp.com.
