As of the time of making this application, any inaccuracy in the status of the subject property as my principal residence, shall be grounds for rescission and recapture of any retrofit work made to the undersigned by the Chicago Bungalow Association. I agree that in such instance, my proceeds shall be immediately due and payable in full to the Chicago Bungalow Association.
