Responding to the concerns of the title and escrow industry, East Bay Municipal Utility District (“EBMUD”) has revised its guidelines for the Regional Private Sewer Later Ordinance No. 311 (the “Ordinance”). The revised guidelines clarify escrow’s role with respect to Compliance, Exemption or Time Extension Certificates. Specifically, a copy of the Compliance Certificate or Exemption Certificate is to be provided to the buyer, and language in the previous guidelines which stated that the certificate was to be included in your escrow package has been removed. In addition, the $4,500 deposit required for a Time Extension Certificate Application must now be deposited with EBMUD rather than escrow.
