N.J. Admin. Code § 7:22-4.44 - Termination of loans

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) Termination of Trust loans by the Trust shall be conducted as follows:
1. The Trust may terminate a Trust loan in whole or in part for good cause. The term "good cause" shall include but not be limited to:
i. Substantial failure to comply with the terms and conditions of the Trust loan agreement;
ii. Default by the recipient;
iii. A determination that the Trust loan was obtained by fraud;
iv. Without good cause therefor, substantial performance of the project work has not occurred;
v. Gross abuse or corrupt practices in the administration of the project have occurred; or
vi. Trust funds have been used for non-allowable costs.
2. The Trust shall give written notice to the recipient (certified mail, return receipt requested) of its intent to terminate a Trust loan, in whole or in part, at least 30 days prior to the intended date of termination.
3. The Trust shall afford the recipient an opportunity for consultation prior to any termination. After such opportunity for consultation, the Trust may, in writing (certified mail, return receipt requested), terminate the Trust loan in whole or in part.
(b) Project termination by the recipient shall be subject to the following:
1. A recipient shall not unilaterally terminate the project work for which a Trust loan has been awarded, except for good cause and subject to negotiation and payment of appropriate termination settlement costs. The recipient shall promptly give written notice to the Trust of any complete or partial termination of the project work by the recipient.
2. If the Trust determines that there is good cause for the termination of all or any portion of a project for which the Trust loan has been awarded, the Trust may enter into a termination agreement or unilaterally terminate the Trust loan effective with the date of cessation of the project work by the recipient. The determination to terminate the Trust loan shall be solely within the discretion of the Trust. If the Trust determines not to terminate, the recipient shall remain bound by the terms and conditions of the Trust loan agreement.
3. If the Trust determines that a recipient has ceased work on a project without good cause, the Trust may unilaterally terminate the Trust loan pursuant to this section.
(c) The Trust and recipient may enter into a mutual agreement to terminate at any time pursuant to terms which are consistent with this subchapter. The agreement shall establish the effective date of termination of the project and the schedule for repayment of the Trust loan.
(d) Upon termination, the recipient may be required to immediately refund or repay the entire amount of the Trust loan moneys received from the Trust. If the Trust loan is guaranteed by a security/deficiency agreement, such agreement may have to be brought into effect to ensure the entire repayment of the Trust loan. The Trust may, at its discretion, authorize the immediate repayment of a specific portion of the Trust loan and allow the remaining balance to be repaid in accordance with a revised Trust loan repayment schedule.
(e) The recipient shall reduce the amount of outstanding commitments insofar as possible and report to the Trust the uncommitted balance of funds awarded under the Trust loan. The recipient shall make no new commitments without the Trust's specific approval thereof. The Trust shall make the final determination of the allowability of termination costs.
(f) In addition to any termination action, the Trust retains the right to pursue other legal remedies as may be available under federal, State and local law as warranted.
