We consider Green's functions $G(z):=(H-z)^{-1}$ of Hermitian random band matrices $H$ on the $d$-dimensional lattice $(\Z/L\Z)^d$. The entries $h_{xy}=\overline h_{yx}$ of $H$ are independent centered complex Gaussian random variables with variances $s_{xy}=\mathbb E|h_{xy}|^2$, which satisfy a banded profile so that $s_{xy}$ is negligible if $|x-y|$ exceeds the band width $W$. For any fixed $n\in \N$, we construct an expansion of the $T$-variable, $T_{xy}=|m|^2 \sum_{\alpha}s_{x\alpha}|G_{\alpha y}|^2$, with an error $\OO(W^{-nd/2})$, and use it to prove a local law on the Green's function. This $T$-expansion was the main tool to prove the delocalization and quantum diffusion of random band matrices for dimensions $d\ge 8$ in part I \cite{PartI_high} of this series.
