ARTICLE I

 

NATURE AND SCOPE OF GUARANTY

 

1.1           Guaranty of Obligations.

 

Guarantor hereby absolutely, irrevocably and unconditionally guarantees to Lender the full and timely payment and performance of all of the Guaranteed Obligations as and when the same shall be due and payable under the Loan Documents, whether by lapse of time, by acceleration of maturity or otherwise. Guarantor hereby absolutely, irrevocably and unconditionally covenants and agrees that it is liable for the Guaranteed Obligations as primary obligor.

 

1.2           Definition of Guaranteed Obligations. As used herein, the term “Guaranteed Obligations” means all obligations and liabilities of Borrower to fund the costs of the Unfunded Obligations as set forth in Section 3.9(c) of the Mortgage Loan Agreement in an amount up to $5,309,628 (in the aggregate with any obligations of Guarantor in respect of Unfunded Obligations under the Unfunded Obligations Guaranty delivered in connection with the Mortgage Loan).

 

1.3           Nature of Guaranty. This Guaranty is an irrevocable, absolute and continuing guaranty of payment and not a guaranty of collection. No exculpatory language contained in any of the other Loan Documents shall in any event or under any circumstances modify, qualify or affect the obligations and liabilities of Guarantor hereunder. This Guaranty may not be revoked by Guarantor and shall continue to be effective with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations arising or created after any attempted revocation by Guarantor and, if Guarantor is a natural person, after Guarantor’s death, in which event this Guaranty shall be binding upon Guarantor’s estate and Guarantor’s legal representatives and heirs. It is the intent of Guarantor and Lender that the obligations and liabilities of Guarantor hereunder are absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances (other than payment in full of the Indebtedness) and that, so long as any portion of the Indebtedness shall be outstanding, such obligations and liabilities shall not be discharged or released in whole or in part, by any act or occurrence (including the fact that at any time or from time to time the Indebtedness or the Guaranteed Obligations may be increased or reduced) that might, but for the provisions of this Guaranty, be deemed a legal or equitable discharge or release of Guarantor. This Guaranty may be enforced by Lender and any subsequent holder of any Note or any part thereof and shall not be discharged by the assignment or negotiation of all or any part of any Note.

 

1.4           Joint and Several Liability. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, if Guarantor is comprised of more than one Person, the obligations and liabilities of each such Person under this Guaranty shall be joint and several.

 

1.5           Guaranteed Obligations Not Reduced by Set-Off. The Guaranteed Obligations and the liabilities and obligations of Guarantor to Lender hereunder shall not be reduced, discharged or released because or by reason of any existing or future set-off, offset, claim or defense (other than the defense of payment) of any kind or nature that Borrower, Guarantor or any other Person has or may hereafter have against Lender or against payment of the Indebtedness or the Guaranteed Obligations, whether such set-off, offset, claim or defense arises in connection with the Guaranteed Obligations or otherwise.

1.6           No Duty to Pursue Others; No Duty to Mitigate. It shall not be necessary for Lender (and Guarantor hereby waives any rights that Guarantor may have to require Lender) to take any action, obtain any judgment or file any claim prior to enforcing this Guaranty, including to (i) institute suit or otherwise enforce Lender’s rights, or exhaust its remedies, against Borrower or any other Person liable on all or any part of the Indebtedness or the Guaranteed Obligations, or against any other Person, (ii) enforce Lender’s rights, or exhaust any remedies available to Lender, against any collateral that shall ever have been given to secure all or any part of the Indebtedness or the Guaranteed Obligations, (iii) join Borrower or any other Person liable on the Guaranteed Obligations in any action seeking to enforce this Guaranty or (iv) resort to any other means of obtaining payment of all or any part of the Indebtedness or the Guaranteed Obligations. Lender shall not be required to mitigate damages or take any other action to reduce, collect or enforce the Guaranteed Obligations.

 

1.7           Payment by Guarantor. If all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations shall not be punctually paid or performed when due, whether at demand, maturity, acceleration or otherwise, Guarantor shall, immediately upon demand by Lender and without presentment, protest, notice of protest, notice of non-payment, notice of intention to accelerate the maturity, notice of acceleration of the maturity or any other notice whatsoever other than notice to Guarantor of the Guaranteed Obligations payable by Guarantor, pay in lawful money of the United States of America, the amount due thereon to Lender. Amounts not paid when due hereunder shall accrue interest at the Default Rate, unless such amounts already include interest at the Default Rate pursuant to the terms of the other Loan Documents. Such demands may be made at any time coincident with or after the time for payment of all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations and may be made from time to time with respect to the same or different Guaranteed Obligations.

 

1.8           Application of Payments. If, at any time, there is any Indebtedness or obligations of Borrower to Lender that is not guaranteed by Guarantor, Lender, without in any manner impairing its rights hereunder, may, at its option, apply all amounts realized by Lender from any collateral or security held by Lender first to the payment of such unguaranteed Indebtedness or obligations, with the remaining amounts, if any, to then be applied to the payment of the Indebtedness or obligations guaranteed by Guarantor.

ARTICLE IV

 

SUBORDINATION OF CERTAIN INDEBTEDNESS

 

4.1           Subordination of Guarantor’s Conditional Rights. As used herein, the term “Guarantor’s Conditional Rights” shall mean any and all debts and liabilities of Borrower owed to Guarantor, whether such debts and liabilities now exist or are hereafter incurred or arise, or whether the obligations of Borrower thereon be direct, contingent, primary, secondary, several, joint and several or otherwise, and irrespective of whether such debts or liabilities be evidenced by note, contract, open account or otherwise, and irrespective of the Person or Persons in whose favor such debts or liabilities may, at their inception, have been or may hereafter be created or the manner in which they have been or may hereafter be acquired by Guarantor. Prior to the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, Guarantor’s Conditional Rights hereunder shall not include Guarantor’s right to receive equity distributions from Borrower directly or indirectly from time to time.

 

4.2           Liens Subordinate; Standstill. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Guaranty to the contrary, until the repayment in full of the Indebtedness, Guarantor hereby agrees that (i) all Guarantor’s Conditional Rights and any and all liens, security interests, judgment liens, charges or other encumbrances upon Borrower’s assets securing payment of the Guarantor’s Conditional Rights shall be and remain, at all times, inferior and subordinate in all respects to the payment and performance in full of the Indebtedness and any and all liens, security interests, judgment liens, charges or other encumbrances upon Borrower’s assets securing payment of the Indebtedness, regardless of whether such encumbrances in favor of Guarantor or Lender presently exist or are hereafter created or attach, (ii) prior to the occurrence and during the continuance of a Cash Flow Sweep Period or Event of Default, Guarantor shall not be entitled to, and shall not, receive or collect, directly or indirectly, from Borrower or any other Person any amount pursuant to or in satisfaction of any of the Guarantor’s Conditional Rights and (iii) Guarantor shall not, without the prior written consent of Lender, (x) exercise or enforce any creditor’s right it may have against Borrower in respect of any of the Guarantor’s Conditional Rights or (y) foreclose, repossess, sequester or otherwise take steps or institute any action or proceedings (judicial or otherwise, including the commencement of, or joinder in, any liquidation, bankruptcy, rearrangement, debtor’s relief or insolvency proceeding) to enforce any liens, security interests, collateral rights, judgments or other encumbrances on assets of Borrower held by Guarantor in respect of any of Guarantor’s Conditional Rights. The foregoing shall in no way limit the complete waiver of subrogation rights contained in Section 1.10.

 

4.3           Claims in Bankruptcy. In the event of receivership, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, debtor’s relief or other insolvency proceedings involving Guarantor as debtor, Lender shall have the right and authority, either in its own name or as attorney-in-fact for Guarantor, to prove its claim in any such proceeding and to take such other steps as may be necessary so as to establish its rights hereunder and receive directly from the receiver, trustee or other court custodian and payments that would otherwise be payable pursuant to or in satisfaction of any of the Guarantor’s Conditional Rights. Guarantor hereby assigns any and all such payments to Lender.

4.4           Payments Held in Trust. In the event that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Guaranty, Guarantor should receive any funds, payment or claim that is prohibited by this Guaranty on account of any of the Guarantor’s Conditional Rights (for avoidance of doubt the foregoing excludes equity distributions made by Borrower from time to time directly or indirectly so long as no Event of Default is continuing) and either (i) such amount is paid to Guarantor at any time when any part of the Indebtedness or the Guaranteed Obligations shall not have been paid or performed in full or, (ii) regardless of when such amount is paid to Guarantor, any payment made by, or on behalf of, Borrower to Lender is subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required to be repaid by Lender or paid over to a trustee, receiver or any other Person, whether under any bankruptcy act or otherwise (such payment, a “Preferential Payment”), then such amount paid to Guarantor shall be held in trust for the benefit of Lender and shall forthwith be paid to Lender to be credited and applied upon the Indebtedness or the Guaranteed Obligations, whether matured or unmatured, in such order as Lender, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall determine. To the extent that any of the provisions of this Article 4 shall not be enforceable, Guarantor agrees that until such time as the Indebtedness and the Guaranteed Obligations have been paid and performed in full and the period of time has expired during which any payment made by Borrower to Lender may be determined to be a Preferential Payment, all of the Guarantor’s Conditional Rights, to the extent not validly waived, shall be subordinate to Lender’s right to full payment and performance of the Indebtedness and the Guaranteed Obligations and Guarantor shall not enforce any of the Guarantor’s Conditional Rights during such period.

 

ARTICLE V

 

MISCELLANEOUS

 

5.1           Lender’s Benefit; No Impairment of Loan Documents. This Guaranty is for the benefit of Lender and its successors and assigns and nothing contained herein shall impair, as between Borrower and Lender, the obligations of Borrower under the Loan Documents. Lender and its successors and assigns shall have the right subject to and in accordance with the terms of the Loan Agreement to assign, in whole or in part, this Guaranty and the other Loan Documents to any Person and to participate all or any portion of the Loan, including any servicer or trustee in connection with a Securitization.

 

5.2           Successors and Assigns; Binding Effect. This Guaranty shall be binding upon Guarantor and its heirs, executors, legal representatives, successors and assigns, whether by voluntary action of the parties or by operation of law. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Guarantor may in no event delegate or transfer its obligations under, or be released from, this Guaranty, except in accordance with the terms of the Loan Agreement and this Guaranty.

 

5.3           Costs and Expenses. If Guarantor should breach or fail to timely perform any provision of this Guaranty, Guarantor shall, immediately upon demand by Lender, pay to Lender any and all costs and expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) incurred by Lender in connection with the enforcement hereof or the preservation of Lender’s rights hereunder. The covenant contained in this Section shall survive the payment and performance of the Guaranteed Obligations.

 

 14 

 

 

5.4           Not a Waiver; No Set-Off. The failure of any party to enforce any right or remedy hereunder, or to promptly enforce any such right or remedy, shall not constitute a waiver thereof, nor give rise to any estoppel against such party, nor excuse any other party from its obligations hereunder, nor shall a single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other future exercise, or the exercise of any other right, power, remedy or privilege. In particular, and not by way of limitation, by accepting payment after the due date of any amount payable under this Guaranty, Lender shall not be deemed to have waived any right either to require prompt payment when due of all other amounts due under this Guaranty or to declare a default for failure to effect prompt payment of any such other amount. Lender shall not be required to mitigate damages or take any other action to reduce, collect or enforce any of the Indebtedness or the Guaranteed Obligations. No set-off, counterclaim (other than compulsory counterclaims), reduction, diminution of any obligations or any defense (other than the defense of payment) of any kind or nature that Guarantor has or may hereafter have against Borrower or Lender shall be available hereunder to Guarantor.

 

5.5           PRIOR AGREEMENTS. THIS GUARANTY CONTAINS THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT OF THE PARTIES HERETO IN RESPECT OF THE GUARANTY DESCRIBED HEREIN, AND ALL PRIOR AGREEMENTS AMONG OR BETWEEN SUCH PARTIES, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, INCLUDING ANY TERM SHEETS, CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENTS AND COMMITMENT LETTERS, ARE SUPERSEDED BY THE TERMS OF THIS GUARANTY AS THEY RELATE TO THE GUARANTY DESCRIBED HEREIN.

 

5.6           No Oral Change. No modification, amendment, extension, discharge, termination or waiver of any provision of this Guaranty, nor consent to any departure by Guarantor therefrom, shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in a writing signed by Lender, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance, and for the purpose, for which given. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, no notice to, or demand on, Guarantor, shall entitle Guarantor to any other or future notice or demand in the same, similar or other circumstances.

 

5.7           Separate Remedies. Each and all of Lender’s rights and remedies under this Guaranty and each of the other Loan Documents are intended to be distinct, separate and cumulative and no such right or remedy herein or therein mentioned is intended to be in exclusion of or a waiver of any other right or remedy available to Lender.

 

5.8           Severability. Wherever possible, each provision of this Guaranty shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Guaranty shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Guaranty.

 

5.9           Rules of Construction. All references to sections and exhibits are to sections and exhibits in or to this Guaranty unless otherwise specified. Unless otherwise specified: (i) all meanings attributed to defined terms in this Guaranty shall be equally applicable to both the singular and plural forms of the terms so defined, (ii) “including” means “including, but not limited to” and “including, without limitation” and (iii) the words “hereof,” “herein,” “hereby,” “hereunder” and words of similar import when used in this Guaranty shall refer to this Guaranty as a whole and not to any particular provision, article, section or other subdivision of this Guaranty.
