When should I pay certification fees for my homes project?

Answer

Certification fees can be paid on the following timeline to ensure accurate payments. Certification payment must be complete before GBCI begins the certification review.

One single family home – You can pay certification fees anytime if the single family home will be certified individually. A good example of this is a custom home.

Batch of single family homes – If your single family homes will be submitted in a batch, wait to pay the certification fees until know exactly which projects are in the batch. If you don’t know this information, you can get it from your Green Rater.

One multi-family building – Fees for any multi-family building are based on unit number and conditioned square feet. Pay the certification fees when these values are finalized. If you don’t know this information, you can get it from your Green Rater.

Batch of multi-family buildings – If your multi-family buildings will be submitted in a batch, wait to pay the certification fees until know exactly which projects are in the batch. You will also need to know the final unit number and conditioned square footage of each building. If you don’t know this information, you can get it from your Green Rater.
