(the “New Home”), during the period of, or about, May 9, 2016, and March 15, 2017.

- immediately register the New Home for coverage by HWI provided by a warranty provider pursuant to section 22(1) of the Act;
- provide BCH Compliance Department with proof that the New Home is currently enrolled in a policy of HWI pursuant to section 22(1) of the Act.
