We are looking at advertising a commercial construction project we are financing. As part of the ad, we are wanting to include the logo of the builder on the project. While the project is commercial, the builder also builds residential properties. If we do not require that the builder pay their fair and equitable share on this ad for a commercial construction project, could it be seen as a "thing of value" in exchange for referrals of residential deals, leading to a RESPA section 8 issue?
