BACKGROUND INFORMATION - ORIGINS OF WORK IN PROGRESS POLICY FORM

Contractors Bonding and Insurance Company has offered this work in progress general liability insurance form with less
coverage than our standard policy in an effort to address the lack of available liability insurance for construction
contractors in Oregon. The following are among the governmental expressions of concern over this issue:

1. Chapter 766 Oregon Laws 2003 Effective date September 17, 2003, "AN ACT SB 943 Relating to construction
contractors; creating new provisions; amending ORS 701.105; and declaring an emergency." and "(2) The Construction
Contractors Board by rule, in consultation with the Department of Consumer and Business Services, may allow a general
or specialty contractor that is a residential-only contractor to provide an alternative form of security approved by the board
instead of procuring a public liability, personal injury and property damage insurance policy."

2. Chapter 283 Oregon Laws 2003 Effective date January 1, 2004 AN ACT HB 3145 Relating to home protection
insurance; amending ORS 731.164. "731.164. (1)(a) “Home protection insurance” means that part of casualty insurance
that includes only insurance which undertakes to perform or provide repair or replacement service or indemnification
therefore for the operational or structural failure of the insured home, components of the home or personal property
relating to the home or its components, and does not include protection against consequential damage from the
operational or structural failure."
3. The Oregon Office of Insurance Division's Market Assistance Plan (MAP) for contractors' liability insurance. "A MAP is
a clearinghouse formed by insurers at the request of the Department of Consumer & Business Services (DCBS) to match
businesses — in this case construction contractors — with insurance companies that can offer them coverage. ORS
735.210 provides for the creation of a MAP if businesses are having difficulty obtaining commercial liability insurance, and
if a MAP could help them do so." from the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services Office of Insurance
Division web site at: http://www.cbs.state.or.us/external/ins/docs/contractors_liability/map_q-a.htm
4. The Oregon Construction Contractors Board minutes of March 23, 2004 stated:
"Board member Mike Smith stated that someone has to do something about the liability insurance. I am not saying it is
not, it is a legislative mandate, it is not our mandate, we understand that. The Insurance Division manages it and they
have affect over it. But this is where the rubber meets the road for these people. I don’t see anyone else and I don’t see
any other place where the rubber meets the road. If that is where the problem is, then my own feeling is that is where the
solution has to come from. Somebody has to take leadership and I think it needs to be us."
"We have the ear of the legislature and of the Governor’s office in a unique way that none of the particular industry groups
have. We have relationships with lobbyists and we have relationships with the association groups. We could declare an
emergency. This is an emergency situation; we need a high level commitment to this problem. We want the Governor to
recognize that we have declared that and made a high level commitment to it and we want the legislature to do the same
and we want all the power and resources of government to pull together the people necessary to really sit down and solve
this problem. I mean you talk about economic impact and regulatory streamlining, you know, well I can’t find a better
example for need for that than this problem." Board members determined that the liability insurance problem is an
emergency, that the agency sees this as its top priority to resolve this issue and they are directing staff to use their time as
well to find and research this problem in its totality and to wobe improved on my base. With the Coast Guard tightining
possibilities, and find a solution."
"MOTION: Board member Mike Smith moved the adoption of the following resolution: "That this organization finds that
the cost and availability of state mandated liability insurance for CCB licensees constitutes an emergency and has
directed staff to prioritize their efforts and dedicate all available resources to finding a solutions to this problem." "VOTE:
6-0, Ayes—Fairchild, Gamble, Harkins, Smith, Tolvstad and Trainor."
5. Contractors Bonding and Insurance Company, has taken a leadership role in the Oregon Market Assistance Plan,
MAP,      by     producing   Internet   database     tools    for    locating   available   insurance     markets,

Ario.
PROTECTING YOURSELF AGAINST UNCOVERED LIABILITY - WORK IN PROGRESS POLICY

Construction contractors doing business with the Work in Progress Policy Form, or with other insurance forms containing
policy exclusions, do so with the risk that claims filed against them or their business may not be covered by insurance. In
this event, the contractor will have to retain their own lawyer, and will have to pay the amount of any judgment awarded
against them out of their own assets. Depending upon the amount of the claim and the legal fees and expenses involved,
the contractor may have no choice but to file bankruptcy.

Contractors can reduce their exposure to the most common source of uncovered liability by taking the following steps,
under the guidance of their attorney, before a claim arises:
1. Form an LLC or Corporation. Contractors can reduce their personal liability by operating their business as a Limited
Liability Company or Corporation. These entities can be created with a single sheet of paper and can protect the
contractor’s personal assets in the event uncovered claims are made against the contractor’s business. The protection is
not complete, however, the additional time, risk, and expense necessary for claimants to pierce the corporate veil can
provide substantial negotiating leverage to the contractor.
2. Liability Releases. Most states recognize enforcement of releases whereby one party to a contract releases the other
from liability for certain risks. Based on the difficulty or impossibility of contractors obtaining liability insurance to cover
many construction defect claims, it may be appropriate for contractors to include release provisions in their contracts with
homeowners. Contract language which prohibits or limits homeowner claims to risks covered by the contractor’s liability
insurance can protect the contractor against uncovered liability, and will put the homeowner on notice that they and their
homeowners insurance are assuming these risks. Although these clauses are not always enforceable under state law,
contractors can take advantage of whatever release protection is available by including liability release provisions in their
3. Subrogation Waivers. Subrogation waiver clauses protect the contractor from being sued by the homeowner’s
insurance carrier in the event the carrier pays a water damage, fire loss, or other claim which can be blamed on the
contractor. Since homeowners already pay insurance premiums covering such damages, subrogation waiver clauses
protecting the contractor are uncontroversial. The following is an example of a typical subrogation waiver clause:
Subrogation Waiver: All parties to this contract waive their rights against each other for any damages caused by fire or
other peril covered by any property insurance. This waiver of subrogation shall be effective as to a person or entity even
though that person or entity would otherwise have a duty of indemnification, contractual or otherwise. These clauses are
4. Additional Insureds. Many subcontractors have insurance policies which automatically make the general contractor an
insured on the subcontractor’s policy if there is a clause in the subcontract requiring the subcontractor to do so. Although
these clauses are not always present or enforceable under state law, any contractor who hires subcontractors can take
advantage of whatever additional insured protection may be available by including an additional insured requirement in
their contract.
5. Indemnity Agreements. Many states recognize enforcement of indemnity provisions which require one party to a
contract to defend and indemnify the other party against certain risks. Although these clauses are not always enforceable
under state law, contractors can take advantage of whatever indemnity protection is available by including an indemnity
provision in their contract.
6. Guard Against Water Intrusion Claims. The majority of uncovered construction defect claims arise out of slowly
progressing water or moisture damage to a customer’s residence. These claims most frequently arise out of improper
caulking, flashing, or lapping of building paper at window, door, or deck openings. These claims are exacerbated when
mold occurs and by the presence of OSB plywood and other engineered wood products which often must be replaced
rather than merely dried out after a water problem is solved. Based on the lack of insurance coverage for claims of this
type, prudent contractors take every possible precaution to assure that moisture intrusion or buildup never becomes an
issue on their projects.
                                       Work in Progress Policy Limitations
*** Separate Notarized Signatures Required from Insured and Agent ***

This Notice is incorporated into and becomes part of your insurance policy identified as “Commercial General Liability
Coverage Form – Coverage for Work in Progress”. This policy is not effective unless this Notice is separately signed by
Named Insured and Agent and notarized prior to the effective date in the policy declaration sheet.

This insurance policy contains significant non-standard restrictions on coverage and is offered in response to notice
of the lack of availability of contractor liability insurance from the Oregon Construction Contractor Board and Oregon
Department of Consumer and Business Services Insurance Division. This policy is intended for contractors unable to
obtain affordable insurance elsewhere, and the undersigned prospective insured represents that they have read the
policy and have made a diligent search for unrestricted liability insurance coverage.

The undersigned hereby acknowledges the following specific limitations on their liability coverage:
Completed Operation and Latent Injury Claims:
 This policy does not cover claims for bodily injury or property damage unless it is discovered before your work at
 the jobsite is completed or abandoned.
Contractual liability Coverage:
 The policy provides coverage for your contractual assumption of someone else's liability only to the extent that an
 owner or general contractor is held liable for your own negligence in injuring one of your employees.
Allocation Between Covered and Uncovered Damages and Arbitration of Coverage Disputes:
  In the event the insured determination of the amount of damages to be allocated between covered and uncovered
  claims, or regarding our determination of the insured's entitlement to a defense against any claim, the insured's sole
  means of disputing our decision is via the arbitration provisions set forth in the policy. The insured has no right to
  litigate coverage disputes in court, and no right to assign any claim against us to others.

This Notice does not change the terms of coverage set forth in the attached policy forms. This Notice is meant only
to call your attention to some of the significant coverage limitations. The attached policy forms contain other
significant limitations on coverage and you must read the attached policy forms that determine the extent of your
coverage.
By signing below the insured also acknowledges that the premium rate charged for this policy may be different
from the rate on file with the Department of Insurance as allowed by ORS 737.325(2), and the insured hereby
requests, based on the lack of availability of admitted carriers writing these risks, that the following rate be used on
this specific risk: per quote attached .

INDEMNITY AGREEMENT                                                                            **Insert Principal's name exactly as it is to appear in Bond
 I request that Contractors Bonding and Insurance Company ("CBIC") execute a Bond and consider executing future Bonds for (Company Name)
                                                                                                                                                                 **("Principal").



  I make the following promises so that CBIC will execute a Bond and consider executing future Bonds:
 1. I agree that the following definitions apply: (a) Bond means (i) any surety bond, undertaking, or other express or implied obligation of guaranty or suretyship, signed or
 committed to by CBIC at the request of Principal, or any of the indemnitors (regardless of what business entity is named on the Bond), on, before, or after the date of this
 agreement pursuant to which CBIC is or may be made liable for Loss, whether or not Principal is also liable; and (ii) all riders, endorsements, continuations, renewals,
 substitutions, modifications, extensions, replacements and reinstatements thereto; and changes in the penal sum thereto; and (b) Loss means any payment or expense
 either incurred or anticipated by CBIC in connection with any Bond or this agreement, including but not limited to: payment of bond proceeds or any other expense in
 connection with claims, potential claims, or demands; claim fees; penalties; interest; court costs; collection agency fees; costs related to taking, protecting, administering,
 realizing upon, or releasing collateral; and attorneys' fees (including but not limited to those incurred in defense of bond claims or pursuing any rights of indemnification or
 subrogation and in obtaining and enforcing any judgment arising from those rights).
 2. I, individually, and jointly and severally with Principal and all other indemnitors, agree to hold CBIC harmless from all Loss and to pay back or reimburse CBIC for all Loss,
 plus interest thereon at the highest legal rate allowed by law from the date CBIC sustained the Loss until CBIC has been paid in full.
 3. I agree to provide adequate collateral to CBIC in the event that CBIC is required or deems it necessary to establish a reserve for Loss for any Bond. The reserve for Loss
 may vary from time to time as CBIC deems necessary to protect itself from Loss. Cash collateral equal to the reserve for Loss shall be adequate. Other collateral shall be
 adequate if the net equity value of the collateral is equal to 166% of the reserve for Loss and the collateral is otherwise acceptable to CBIC. CBIC may insist upon cash
 collateral. Collateral may be held by CBIC until CBIC has determined it is no longer exposed to Loss as a matter of law, and CBIC may retain or sell collateral to reimburse
 itself for Loss. Specific performance of this paragraph shall be a remedy available to CBIC, and all procedures for executing on judgments may be used to enforce CBIC's
 decree(s) of specific performance. In the event that CBIC suffers a Loss, prior to being provided with collateral, CBIC may enforce any decree of specific performance, up to
 the amount of such decree, as a money judgment (in addition to any other judgments) to reimburse itself for such Loss without further notice or motion.
 4. I agree that premium for a Bond is fully earned upon execution of a Bond and is not refundable.
 5. I agree that a facsimile copy of this agreement shall be considered an original and shall be admissable in a court of law to the same extent as the original agreement.
 6. I agree that CBIC may obtain a release from its obligations as surety on a Bond whenever any such release is authorized by law.
 7. Unless a Bond specifically states (i) that it cannot be cancelled, or (ii) the manner in which notice of cancellation must be given, CBIC may cancel a Bond by mailing a
 notice of cancellation in the regular U.S. Mails to the obligee and to Principal, or Principal's representative, at the latest address provided to CBIC, and I agree to accept
 service of notice in such manner. I designate my insurance agent as my representative and Principal's representative for such service. Unless a Bond, statute or lawful
 governmental regulation specifically provides otherwise, cancellation shall be effective 30 days after CBIC deposits the requisite notice of cancellation in the U.S. Mails. I
 WAIVE ANY CLAIM AGAINST CBIC FOR DAMAGES which I may suffer as a result of cancellation of a Bond or any release from any obligation of CBIC on any Bond.
 8. I agree that CBIC has the exclusive right to decide whether to pay, compromise, defend, or appeal any claim against a Bond.
 9. I agree that I CANNOT TERMINATE my LIABILITY to CBIC created by this agreement except by sending written notice of intent to terminate to CBIC. Written notice to
 terminate shall be sent to CBIC at its home office, 1213 Valley Street, P.O. Box 9271, Seattle, WA 98109-0271. I AGREE that the termination will be effective thirty working
 days after actual receipt of such notice by CBIC, but only for Bonds signed or committed to by CBIC after the effective date. Thus, I agree that I will REMAIN LIABLE to CBIC
 for LOSS on BONDS SIGNED OR COMMITTED TO BY CBIC PRIOR TO THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF TERMINATION.
 10. I agree that CBIC can bring any legal action arising out of or in any way related to any Bond or this agreement in Multnomah County, Oregon, and that Oregon law shall
 apply where CBIC makes such election.
 11. I agree that CBIC shall have the right to fill in any blanks left herein and to correct any errors made by me in filling in any blanks.
 12. I agree that I have READ AND UNDERSTOOD this agreement, that I am signing as a PERSONAL INDEMNITOR, on behalf of my MARITAL COMMUNITY, and in
 my CORPORATE, PARTNERSHIP, or LLC CAPACITY, if any. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision hereof shall in no way affect the validity or
 enforceability of any other provision. No missing signature shall invalidate this agreement.




AGENT CANNOT BIND COVERAGE
I understand that my insurance agent has no authority to bind coverages, I will know applicant has the bond only when applicant receives the bond, and I will know applicant
has the insurance only when applicant receives either the insurance certificate signed by an employee of Contractors Bonding and Insurance Co. or a copy of the insurance
policy itself. I understand that my insurance agent has no authority to issue policy endorsements. I acknowledge that applicant received a copy of the application, of which my
signature below is part. I agree to pay to CBIC each annual premium due according to the rates in effect when each payment is due.


PERMISSION TO INVESTIGATE CREDIT
I authorize CBIC or its agents to periodically investigate and review my credit, and Principal's/Insured's credit, with any credit reporting agency or any other person or entity.
Authorization is hereby granted to any of the aforementioned, now and at any time in the future, to release information to CBIC pertaining to credit.
