Section 1.03 Security Agreement. This Deed of Trust is both a real property mortgage and a “security agreement” within the meaning of the Uniform Commercial Code. The Property includes both real and personal property and all other rights and interests, whether tangible or intangible in nature, of Trustor in the Property. By executing and delivering this Deed of Trust, Trustor hereby grants to Beneficiary, as security for the Obligations, a security interest in the Fixtures, the Equipment, the Personal Property and the other property constituting the Property to the full extent that the Fixtures, the Equipment, the Personal Property and such other property may be subject to the Uniform Commercial Code (said portion of the Property so subject to the Uniform Commercial Code being called the Collateral). If an Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, Beneficiary, in addition to any other rights and remedies which it may have, shall have and may exercise immediately and without demand, any and all rights and remedies granted to a secured party upon default under the Uniform Commercial Code, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the right to take possession of the Collateral or any part thereof, and to take such other measures as Beneficiary may deem necessary for the care, protection and preservation of the Collateral. Upon request or demand of Beneficiary after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Trustor shall, at its expense, assemble the Collateral and make it available to Beneficiary at a convenient place (at the Land if tangible property) reasonably acceptable to Beneficiary. Trustor shall pay to Beneficiary on demand any and all expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, incurred or paid by Beneficiary in protecting its interest in the Collateral and in enforcing its rights hereunder with respect to the Collateral after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default. Any notice of sale, disposition or other intended action by Beneficiary with respect to the Collateral sent to Trustor in accordance with the provisions hereof at least ten (10) Business Days prior to such action, shall, except as otherwise provided by applicable law or the Loan Agreement, constitute reasonable notice to Trustor. The proceeds of any disposition of the Collateral, or any part thereof, may, except as otherwise required by applicable law, be applied by Beneficiary to the payment of the Debt in such priority and proportions as Beneficiary in its discretion shall deem proper. The principal place of business of Trustor (Debtor) is as set forth on page one hereof and the address of Beneficiary (Secured Party) is as set forth on page one hereof. Trustor hereby authorizes Beneficiary to file or record any Uniform Commercial Code financing statements as Beneficiary deems to be reasonably necessary to perfect its security interest in the property described in this Section 1.03, and in the fixtures described in Section 1.04, without any signature of Trustor, and to file any amendments, modifications, assignments and terminations thereof, all without the signature of Trustor.

 

Section 1.04 Fixture Filing. Certain of the Property is or will become “fixtures” (as that term is defined in the Uniform Commercial Code) on the Land, described or referred to in this Deed of Trust, and this Deed of Trust, upon being filed for record in the real estate records of the city or county wherein such fixtures are situated, shall operate also as a financing statement naming Trustor as the Debtor and Beneficiary as the Secured Party filed as a fixture filing in accordance with the applicable provisions of said Uniform Commercial Code upon such of the Property that is or may become fixtures.

 

CONDITIONS TO GRANT

 

TO HAVE AND TO HOLD the above granted and described Property unto and to the use and benefit of Beneficiary and its successors and assigns, forever;

 

PROVIDED, HOWEVER, these presents are upon the express condition that, if Trustor shall well and truly pay and perform the Obligations (including the payment of the Debt) at the time and in the manner provided in this Deed of Trust, the Note, the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and shall well and truly abide by and comply with each and every covenant and condition set forth herein and in the Note, the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents, these presents and the estate hereby granted shall cease, terminate and be void; provided, however, that Trustor’s obligation to indemnify and hold harmless Beneficiary pursuant to the provisions hereof shall survive any such payment or release.

Section 14.02 No “Mortgagee-in-Possession” Status. Neither the assignment of Leases and Rents contained in this Deed of Trust, nor the exercise by Beneficiary of any of its rights or remedies under this Deed of Trust shall be deemed to make Beneficiary a “mortgagee-in-possession” or otherwise liable in any manner with respect to the Property, unless Beneficiary, in person or by agent, assumes actual possession thereof. Nor shall appointment of a receiver for the Property by any court at the request of Beneficiary or by agreement with Trustor, or the entering into possession of the Property by such receiver, be deemed to make Beneficiary a “mortgagee-in-possession” or otherwise liable in any manner with respect to the Property.

 

Section 14.03 Power of Sale. This instrument may be foreclosed in any manner permitted by the laws of the State of California. The sale or sales of less than the whole of the Property shall not exhaust the power of sale herein granted, and Trustee is specifically empowered to make successive sales under such power until the whole of the Property shall be sold. Should Beneficiary elect to invoke the power of sale the Property, or any part thereof, which is real property as provided above, Beneficiary or Trustee shall give such notice of default and election to sell as may then be required by law. Thereafter, upon the expiration of such time and the giving of such notice of sale as may then be required by law, and without the necessity of any demand on Trustor, Trustee, at the time and place specified in the notice of sale, shall sell the Property or any part thereof at public auction to the highest bidder for cash in lawful money of the United States, or cash equivalent acceptable to Trustee and Beneficiary, payable at time of sale. After deducting all costs, fees and expenses of Trustee and of this trust, including costs of evidence of title in connection with the sale, Trustee shall apply the proceeds of sale to payment of: all sums expended under this Deed of Trust, not then repaid, with interest thereon from the date of expenditure until paid at the Default Rate; all indebtedness and other obligations secured hereby; and the remainder, if any, to the person or persons legally entitled thereto. Trustee may, and upon request of Beneficiary shall, from time to time, postpone any sale hereunder by public announcement thereof at the time and place noticed therefor or by giving notice of the time and place of the postponed sale in the manner required by law. If the Property consists of several lots, parcels or items of property, Beneficiary may designate the order in which such lots, parcels or items shall be offered for sale or sold. Should Beneficiary desire that more than one sale or other disposition of the Property be conducted, Beneficiary may, at its option, cause the same to be conducted simultaneously, or successively, on the same day, or at such different times and in such order as Beneficiary may deem to be in its best interests, and no such sale shall terminate or otherwise affect the lien of this Deed of Trust on any part of the Property not sold until all indebtedness secured hereby has been fully paid.

If Beneficiary should institute a suit for judicial foreclosure or enforcement of the assignments, liens, and security interests hereof, Beneficiary may, at any time before the entry of a final judgment in such suit, dismiss the same, and sell the Property, or any part thereof, in accordance with the power of sale provisions of this Deed of Trust.

Section 14.05 Rights Cumulative. Every right, power and remedy granted to Trustee or Beneficiary in this Deed of Trust shall be cumulative and not exclusive, and in addition to all right, powers and remedies granted at law or in equity or by statute, and the exercise of any such right, power or remedy shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to exercise, at the same time or thereafter, any other right, power or remedy.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Loan Agreement, Beneficiary may waive its lien against the Property or any portion thereof, whether fixtures or personal property, to the extent such property is found to be “environmentally impaired” or an “affected parcel” in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure Section 726.5 and may exercise any and all rights and remedies of an unsecured creditor against Trustor and all of Trustor’s assets and property for the recovery of any deficiency and Environmental Costs (as hereinafter defined), including, but not limited to, seeking an attachment order under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 483.010. The term Environmental Costs shall mean any costs, damages, expenses, fees, penalties, fines, judgments, indemnification payments to third parties, and other out-of-pocket costs or expenses actually incurred or advanced by Beneficiary relating to the cleanup, remediation or other response action required by Environmental Laws or which Beneficiary believes necessary to protect the Property. As between Beneficiary and Trustor, for purposes of California Code of Civil Procedure Section 726.5, Trustor shall have the burden of proving that Trustor or any related party (or any Affiliate or agent of Trustor or any related party) was not in any way negligent in permitting the release or threatened release of Hazardous Substances. Trustor acknowledges and agrees that, subject to any term or provision contained herein or in the other Loan Documents, all judgments and awards entered against Trustor pursuant to this paragraph, paragraph (e) of Section 14.07 below, and all Environmental Costs, shall be exceptions to any nonrecourse or exculpatory provision of the Loan Documents, and Trustor shall be fully and personally liable for all judgments and awards entered against Trustor under this paragraph, paragraph (e) below, and Environmental Costs, and such liability shall not be limited to the original principal amount of the obligations secured by this Deed of Trust and Trustor’s obligations shall survive the foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure, release, reconveyance or any other transfer of the Property or this Deed of Trust. For the purpose of any action brought under this Section or Section 14.07 below, Trustor waives the defense of laches and any applicable statute of limitations.

Section 14.07 BREACH OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROVISIONS.

 

(a) Subject to the terms and conditions of the Loan Agreement, Beneficiary may seek a judgment that Trustor has breached its covenants, representations, warranties and/or other provisions with respect to environmental matters contained in this Deed of Trust or any other Loan Document, by commencing and maintaining an action or actions in any court of competent jurisdiction for breach of contract pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Section 736, whether commenced prior to or after foreclosure of the Property, and may seek the recovery of Environmental Costs, it being conclusively presumed between Beneficiary and Trustor that all such Environmental Costs incurred or advanced by Beneficiary relating to the cleanup, remediation or other action of or to the Property were made by Beneficiary in good faith. All Environmental Costs incurred by Beneficiary under this Section shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date of expenditure until said sums have been paid. Beneficiary shall be entitled to bid, at any sale of the Property under this Deed of Trust, the amount Environmental Costs so incurred in addition to the amount of the other obligations hereby secured as a credit bid, the equivalent of cash.

 

(b) Without limiting any of the remedies provided in the Loan Documents, Trustor acknowledges and agrees that the provisions of the Environmental Indemnity are environmental provisions (as defined in Section 736(f)(2) of the California Code of Civil Procedure) made by Trustor relating to the real property security (the “Environmental Provisions”). Trustor’s breach or a failure to comply with the Environmental Provisions shall constitute a breach of contract entitling Beneficiary to all remedies provided under Section 736 of the California Code of Civil Procedure for the recovery of damages and for the enforcement of the Environmental Provisions. Pursuant to Section 736, Beneficiary’s action for recovery of damages or enforcement of the Environmental Provisions shall not constitute an action within the meaning of Section 726(a) of the California Code of Civil Procedure or constitute a money judgment for a deficiency or a deficiency judgment within the meaning of Sections 580a, 580b, 580d and 726(b) of the California Code of Civil Procedure. The rights and remedies provided for under the Loan Documents are separate and distinct causes of action that shall not be abrogated, modified, limited or otherwise affected by the remedies provided under Section 736(a) of the California Code of Civil Procedure.

 

(c) In the event Beneficiary elects, in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure Section 726.5, to waive all or part of the security of this Deed of Trust and proceed against Trustor on an unsecured basis, the valuation of the real property, the determination of the environmentally impaired status of such security and any cause of action for a money judgment shall, at the request of Beneficiary, be referred to a referee in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 638 et seq. Such referee shall be an M.A.I. appraiser selected by Beneficiary and approved by Trustor, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. If the parties cannot agree on an M.A.I. appraiser, either party may apply to the presiding judge of the Superior Court in which the Property is located to make such appointment. The decision of such referee shall be binding upon both Trustor and Beneficiary, and judgment upon the award rendered by such referee shall be entered in the court in which such proceeding was commenced in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 644 and 645. Trustor shall pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Beneficiary in connection with any proceeding under California Code of Civil Procedure 726.5, as such Section may be amended from time to time.

(d) Beneficiary or its agents, acting by themselves or through a court appointed receiver, may upon reasonable advance notice to Trustor and an opportunity to be present, enter upon the Property or any part thereof and may perform such acts and things as Beneficiary deems reasonably necessary or desirable to inspect, investigate, assess, and protect the security hereof, including without limitation of any of its other rights: (i) obtain a court order to enforce Beneficiary’s right to enter and inspect the Property under California Civil Code Section 2929.5, to which the decision of Beneficiary as to whether there exists a release or threatened release of a Hazardous Substance onto the Property shall be deemed reasonable and conclusive as between the parties hereto; and (ii) have a receiver appointed under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 564 to enforce Beneficiary’s right to enter and inspect Property for Hazardous Substances. Subject to the Loan Documents, all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Beneficiary with respect to the audits, tests, inspections and examinations which Beneficiary or its agents or employees may conduct, including the reasonable fees of the engineers, laboratories, contractors, consultants and attorneys, shall become part of the indebtedness secured hereby and shall be paid by Trustor upon demand with interest at the Default Rate from the date when paid by Beneficiary. Beneficiary may seek a judgment that Trustor has breached its covenants, representations, warranties and/or other provisions with respect to this Deed of Trust or the other Loan Documents by commencing and maintaining an action or actions in any court of competent jurisdiction for breach of contract pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Section 736, whether commenced prior to or after foreclosure of the Property, and may seek the recovery of Environmental Costs, it being conclusively presumed between Beneficiary and Trustor that all such Environmental Costs incurred or advanced by Beneficiary relating to the cleanup, remediation or other response action of or to the Property were made by Beneficiary in good faith. Trustor acknowledges that such an action shall not constitute an action within the meaning of Section 726(a) of the California Code of Civil Procedure or constitute a money judgment for a deficiency or a deficiency judgment within the meaning of Sections 580a, 580b, 580d or 726(b) of the California Code of Civil Procedure. All Environmental Costs incurred by Beneficiary under this clause (including court costs, reasonable consultant fees and reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements, whether incurred in litigation or not and whether before or after judgment) shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date of expenditure until said sums have been paid. Beneficiary shall be entitled to bid, at the sale of the Property held under any provision of this Deed of Trust, the amount of said costs, expenses and interest in addition to the amount of the other obligations hereby secured as a credit bid, the equivalent of cash.

 

(e) Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit the right of Beneficiary to recover, in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure Section 736 (as such Section may be amended from time to time), any reasonable costs, expenses, liabilities or damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, incurred by Beneficiary and arising from any covenant, obligation, liability, representation or warranty contained in any Loan Document given to Beneficiary (including, without limitation, the environmental indemnity provisions of the Loan Agreement), or any order, consent decree or settlement relating to the cleanup of Hazardous Substances or any other “environmental provision” (as defined in such Section 736) relating to the Property or any portion thereof or the right of Beneficiary to waive, in accordance with the California Code of Civil Procedure Section 726.5 (as such Section may be amended from time to time), the security of this Deed of Trust as to any parcel of the Property that is “environmentally impaired” or is an “affected parcel” (as such terms are defined in such Section 726.5), and as to any personal property attached to such parcel, and thereafter to exercise against Trustor, to the extent permitted by such Section 726.5, the rights and remedies of any unsecured creditor, including reduction of Beneficiary’s claim against Trustor to judgment, and any other rights and remedies permitted by law.

Section 14.08 Trustee’s Deed Recitals. The recitals of facts in any instrument delivered upon completion of any sales, as described above in this Article XV, such as the existence of a default, the giving of written notice of default and notice of sale, and other facts affecting the regularity or validity of such sale or disposition, shall be conclusive proof of the truth of such facts and any such instruments shall be conclusive against all persons as to such fact recited therein.

 

Section 14.09 Right of Entry. In addition to any other rights or remedies granted under this Deed of Trust but subject to the terms and conditions of the Loan Agreement and the rights of lessees, Beneficiary and its agents, acting by themselves or through a court appointed receiver, upon reasonable advance notice to Trustor and an opportunity to be present, shall have the right to enter upon the Property or any part thereof and perform such acts and things as Beneficiary deems necessary or desirable to inspect, investigate, assess, and protect the security thereof. Without limitation of any of its other rights and subject to the provisions of the Loan Agreement, Beneficiary shall have the right to: (i) obtain a court order to enforce Beneficiary’s right to enter and inspect the Property under California Civil Code Section 2929.5 to which the decision of Beneficiary as to whether there exists a release or threatened release of Hazardous Substances onto the Property shall be deemed reasonable and conclusive as between the parties hereto and (ii) have a receiver appointed under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 564 to enforce Beneficiary’s right to enter and inspect the Property for Hazardous Substances. All reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Beneficiary with respect to the audits, tests, inspections, and examinations which Beneficiary or its agents or employees may conduct, including the reasonable fees of the engineers, laboratories, contractors, consultants, and attorneys, shall be paid by Trustor five Business Days following demand with interest at the Default Rate from the date paid by Beneficiary. Such costs, if not paid for by Trustor following demand, may be added to the principal balance of the sums due under the Note and this Deed of Trust and shall bear interest thereafter until paid at the Default Rate.

 

Section 14.10 Reconveyance. If the Debt is paid and all obligations secured by this Deed of Trust are fully performed in accordance with the terms of this Deed of Trust, the Note and the other Loan Documents, then Beneficiary agrees to request Trustee to reconvey the Property and upon payment by Trustor of Trustee’s fees and all other sums owing to it under this Deed of Trust, Trustee will reconvey the Property without warranty to the person or persons legally entitled thereto. The grantee in the reconveyance may be described as “the person or persons legally entitled thereto.” No reconveyance hereof shall impair Trustor’s warranties and indemnities contained herein.

Section 14.11 Border Zone Property. To Trustor’s actual knowledge and except as disclosed in the Environmental Report, Trustor represents and warrants that the Premises have not been designated as Border Zone Property under the provisions of California Health and Safety Code, Sections 25220 et seq. or any regulation adopted in accordance therewith, and there has been no occurrence or condition on any real property adjoining the Property that is reasonably likely to cause the Property or any part thereof to be designated as Border Zone Property.

 

Section 14.12 Insurance Notice. Beneficiary hereby notifies Trustor of the provisions of Section 2955.5(a) of the California Civil Code, which reads as follows:

 

“No lender shall require a borrower, as a condition of receiving or maintaining a loan secured by real property, to provide hazard insurance coverage against risks to the improvements on that real property in an amount exceeding the replacement value of the improvements on the property.”

 

This disclosure is being made by Beneficiary to Trustor pursuant to Section 2955.5(b) of the California Civil Code. Trustor hereby acknowledges receipt of this disclosure and acknowledges that this disclosure has been made by Beneficiary before execution of any note or security document evidencing or securing the Loan.

 

Section 14.13 Commercial Loan. Trustor represents and warrants that the Loan is for commercial purposes, and not for personal, household or consumer purposes.

 

Section 14.14 Other Loan Documents. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein or in the other Loan Documents with respect to the Obligations under any of the other Loan Documents, including the Environmental Indemnity or the Guaranty, this Deed of Trust secures only such Obligations of Trustor under such agreements and does not secure the obligation of any other Person party to such agreements.

 

Section 14.15 PRIORITY OF LEASES. Beneficiary may at any time and from time to time by specific written instrument intended for such purpose, unilaterally subordinate the lien of this Deed of Trust to any Lease, without joinder or consent of, or notice to, Trustor, any tenant or any other person. Notice is hereby given to each tenant under a Lease of such right to subordinate. No subordination referred to in this Section shall constitute a subordination to any lien or other encumbrance, whenever arising, or improve the right of any junior lienholder. Nothing herein shall be construed as subordinating this Deed of Trust to any Lease.
