    -33-


Confirmation are inconsistent with terms in this Agreement with respect to a particular Future Funding Transaction such Future Funding Transaction Request and Confirmation shall prevail.
(ii)For each proposed Future Funding Transaction, no less than five (5) Business Days prior to the proposed Future Funding Date, Seller shall deliver to Buyer a Future Funding Request Package. Buyer shall have the right to conduct such additional due diligence of any changes to the related Purchased Asset since the related initial Purchase Date as Buyer deems necessary in its sole discretion and shall have the right to ensure that such Purchased Asset has remained and continues to be an Eligible Asset.

On the related Future Funding Date, (a) if an escrow agreement has been established in connection with such Future Funding Transaction, Buyer shall remit the related Future Funding Amount to the related escrow account, (b) if the terms of the Purchased Asset Documents provide for a reserve account in connection with future advances, Buyer shall remit the related Future Funding Amount to the applicable reserve account and (c) otherwise, Buyer shall remit the related Future Funding Amount to the Loan Servicer who shall forward it directly to the related Mortgagor, or otherwise apply the related Future Funding Amount as required under the terms of the related Purchased Asset Documents.

(f)Optional Repurchase; Mandatory Repurchase.
(i)Provided that no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, no Margin Deficit (other than with respect to the asset then being repurchased) exists and no Default, Event of Default or Margin Deficit (other than with respect to the asset then being repurchased) will result therefrom, Seller may voluntarily repurchase upon payment of the Repurchase Price and subject to the other conditions set forth herein, any Purchased Asset on any Business Day by delivering to Buyer a Request for Repurchase and Confirmation no more than once per week unless consented to in writing by Buyer in its sole discretion. If Seller intends to make such a repurchase, Seller shall give at least five (5) Business Days’ prior written notice thereof to Buyer, designating the Purchased Asset(s) to be repurchased. If such notice is given and not subsequently revoked, the amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein, and, on receipt, such amount shall be applied to the Repurchase Price for the designated Purchased Assets. Any repurchase of a Purchased Asset may occur simultaneously with a sale of the Purchased Asset to a third party investor.
(ii)So long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Seller shall have the right on any Business Day, upon five (5) Business Days’ prior written notice to Buyer, to repurchase in part the Repurchase Price of any Purchased Asset, without terminating the applicable Transaction. In connection with any reduction
-34-


of outstanding Repurchase Price (other than a termination of a Transaction) pursuant to this Section 3(f)(ii), Buyer and Seller shall amend and restate the existing Confirmation for the Transaction to set forth the current outstanding Repurchase Price and any other changes related thereto.
(iii)In addition to any other rights and remedies of Buyer under any Program Document, Seller shall immediately repurchase any Purchased Asset where (A) any of the representations and warranties with respect to such Purchased Asset set forth in Schedule 1 of this Agreement are not true or correct in any respect, (B) such Purchased Asset no longer qualifies as an Eligible Asset, as determined by Buyer in its sole good faith discretion, (C) such Purchased Asset has caused any of the Sub-limits to be exceeded, or (D) any of the documents required to be delivered to Custodian under the Custodial Agreement have not been so delivered on a timely basis in accordance with the Custodial Agreement and this Agreement. In addition. Seller shall effect a partial or complete repurchase of one or more Purchased Assets, as directed by Buyer, to the extent necessary to cure a breach of a Sub-Limit.
(iv)Provided that (A) other than with respect to repayment in full of the Purchased Asset in accordance with the Purchased Asset Documents, no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and no Default or Margin Deficit will result therefrom, and (B) Buyer has received 100% of the Repurchase Price upon repurchase with respect to any Purchased Asset, Buyer agrees to release its ownership interest hereunder in such Purchased Asset (including the Repurchase Assets related thereto) and transfer such Purchased Asset to Seller pursuant to a letter agreement substantially in the form of Annex 4-C to the Custodial Agreement.
(v)On the Business Day prior to the Termination Date or, if sooner, on the Business Day on which Seller repurchases the last Purchased Asset financed hereunder and has notified Buyer that it intends to terminate its obligations under this Agreement and the other Program Documents, Seller shall repurchase all Purchased Assets for the respective Repurchase Prices therefor, and shall pay to Buyer in full in immediately available funds, the Facility Exit Fee, which fee shall be due and payable to Buyer no later than the Business Day prior to the Termination Date.
(vi)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, repurchases in whole or in part made hereunder, exclusively in connection with the repayment or prepayment in full by any Mortgator shall be permitted without regard to the existence of a Default or Event of Default hereunder.
SECTION 4.MARGIN AMOUNT MAINTENANCE
(a)If at any time after the occurrence of any event set forth in clause (b) of the definition of Market Value, Buyer has re-determined the Market Value of any Purchased Asset(s) subject to a Transaction, and the aggregate Purchase Price of all Purchased Assets exceeds the sum of the product, for all Purchased Assets, of (i) the applicable Purchase Price Percentage of each Purchased Asset and (ii) the then-current re-determined Market Value of each Purchased Asset (any such excess, a “Margin Deficit”) and such Margin Deficit is equal to or greater than the Minimum Transfer Amount, then Buyer may, by the delivery of written notice to Seller (a “Margin Call”), require Seller to, prior to the applicable Margin Deadline, at Seller’s option either (i) repurchase one or more of the Purchased Assets at their respective Repurchase Price(s), or (ii) make a payment to Buyer in reduction of the Repurchase Price of one or more of the Purchased Assets, to be applied by Buyer to reduce the unpaid Repurchase Price(s) of such Purchased Asset(s) and in such amount(s), such that, after giving effect to such repurchase or payment, all related Margin Deficit(s) shall be reduced to zero. Seller shall satisfy each Margin
    -35-


Deficit in full in the manner set forth in this Section 4(a) no later than the Initial Margin Deadline; provided that, if, on or prior to the Initial Margin Deadline, Seller has (1) paid the Initial Margin Payment Amount in cash to Buyer, and (2) Seller or Guarantor has provided evidence to Buyer reasonably satisfactory to Buyer that Guarantor has (x) sufficient capacity available on committed loan or credit facilities to satisfy the related Margin Deficit in full, and (y) Guarantor has submitted notices of borrowing under its committed loan or credit facilities in an aggregate amount sufficient to satisfy the related Margin Deficit in full, then Seller shall be permitted to pay in full the remaining balance of such Margin Deficit(s) in excess of the Initial Margin Payment Amount on or before the Extended Margin Deadline. The failure of any of Guarantor’s lenders to make any advance under any loan or credit facility shall not excuse Seller from the obligation to pay all Margin Deficit(s) in full on a timely basis, which obligations shall be absolute and unconditional notwithstanding any such failure. In making any determination that a Margin Deficit Event has occurred, Buyer shall utilize substantially similar methodologies to those that Buyer utilizes with similar-situated counterparties with similar collateral.
(b)Notice delivered pursuant to Section 4(a) of this Agreement may be given by any written or electronic means. Payment of any Margin Deficit in connection with any notice of a Margin Call shall be satisfied no later than the Initial Margin Deadline unless Seller and Guarantor satisfy the requirements set forth in the second sentence of Section 4(a), in which case only the Initial Margin Payment Amount is required to be paid on or prior to the Initial Margin Deadline and the balance of such Margin Deficit is required to be paid in full on or prior to the Extended Margin Deadline.
(c)The failure of Buyer, on any one or more occasions, to exercise its rights under this Section 4, shall not change or alter the terms and conditions to which this Agreement is subject or limit the right of Buyer to do so at a later date. Seller and Buyer each agree that a failure or delay by Buyer to exercise its rights hereunder shall not limit or waive Buyer’s rights under this Agreement or otherwise existing by law or in any way create additional rights for Seller.
SECTION 5.COLLECTIONS; INCOME PAYMENTS
(a)Each of Buyer and, subject to the reasonable consent of Buyer, Seller, shall each have the option, exercisable upon the delivery of written notice to the other, to (i) establish a demand deposit account on the books and records of the Control Account Bank in the name of Buyer or as otherwise titled as approved by Buyer (the “Control Account”), which Control Account shall be subject to a Control Agreement concurrently with the establishment of the Control Account by Seller and Buyer, (ii) also concurrently with the establishment of the Control Account and the execution and delivery of the Control Agreement, cause outside counsel to Seller to deliver a legal opinion to Buyer with respect to the due execution, delivery and enforceability of the Control Agreement, together with the creation and perfection of a perfected and first-priority security interest in the Control Account in favor of Buyer, and (iii) jointly amend the Servicer Notice to update the account instructions set forth therein (collectively, the “Control Account Option”).

(d)Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, all amounts remitted to the Control Account shall be held in trust for Buyer and shall be withdrawn from the Control Account only by and as directed by Buyer in accordance with Buyer’s rights under this Agreement and the Control Agreement and shall be applied to reduce all unpaid Obligations, including, without limitation the unpaid Repurchase Prices of one or more of the Purchased Assets, in each case in such amounts as determined and directed by Buyer in its sole discretion.

Seller shall also promptly deliver to Buyer photocopies of all periodic bank statements and other records relating to the Control Account as Buyer may from time to time request.
(f)Unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, all payments received by Buyer shall, after notice to Buyer, be applied by Buyer on the date of such receipt or, if such receipt is made and notice received after 3:00 p.m. (New York time), on the following Business Day, to reduce the Purchase Price of the related Purchased Asset.
SECTION 6.REQUIREMENTS OF LAW
(a)If any Requirements of Law from any central bank or other Governmental Authority made subsequent to the date hereof:
(i)shall subject Buyer to any Tax (in each case except for (A) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) in the definition of Excluded Taxes, (B) Connection Income Taxes, and (C) Indemnified Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto;

-38-


(iii)shall impose on Buyer any other condition (other than Taxes);
and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to Buyer, by an amount which Buyer deems to be material, of entering, continuing or maintaining any Transaction or to reduce any amount due or owing hereunder in respect thereof, or shall have the effect of reducing Buyer’s rate of return then, in any such case, Seller shall promptly pay Buyer such additional amount or amounts as calculated by Buyer in good faith as will compensate Buyer for such increased cost or reduced amount receivable on an after-tax basis; provided, however, in determining whether such increased cost has occurred, Buyer shall use the same methodology that Buyer uses with other similarly situated counterparties under repurchase agreements, warehouse facilities, credit facilities and other similar arrangements for the financing of assets similar to the Purchased Assets.
(b)If Buyer shall have determined that the adoption of or any change in any Requirements of Law regarding capital adequacy or in the interpretation or application thereof or compliance by Buyer or any corporation controlling Buyer with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority made subsequent to the date hereof shall have the effect of reducing the rate of return on Buyer’s or such corporation’s capital as a consequence of its obligations hereunder to a level below that which Buyer or such corporation could have achieved but for such adoption, change or compliance (taking into consideration Buyer’s or such corporation’s policies with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount deemed by Buyer to be material, then from time to time, Seller shall promptly pay to Buyer such additional amount or amounts as will compensate Buyer for such reduction; provided, however, in determining whether such event has occurred, Buyer shall use the same methodology that Buyer uses with other similarly situated counterparties under repurchase agreements, warehouse facilities, credit facilities and other similar arrangements for the financing of assets similar to the Purchased Assets.
(c)Notwithstanding any other provision herein, if the adoption of or any change in any Requirements of Law or Compliance Policy or in the interpretation of any such Requirements of Law or Compliance Policy, the application thereof or the compliance therewith, in each case whether by a Governmental Authority, by Buyer or by any corporation controlling Buyer, shall make it unlawful for Buyer to enter into or maintain Transactions or Future Funding Transactions as contemplated by the Program Documents, then (i) the agreement of Buyer hereunder to consider entering into new Transactions or fund additional, Future Funding Transactions and to continue Transactions as such shall forthwith be canceled, and (ii) if such adoption or change makes it unlawful to maintain Transactions with a Pricing Rate based on One-Month LIBOR, the Transactions then outstanding shall be converted automatically to Alternative Rate Transactions on the last day of the then current Pricing Rate Period or within such earlier period as may be required by law.  If any such conversion of a Transaction occurs on a day that is not the last day of the then current Pricing Rate Period with respect to such Transaction, Seller shall pay to Buyer such amounts, if any, as may be required pursuant to Section 6(e) of this Agreement.
(d)
(i)    Benchmark Replacement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Program Document if a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election, as applicable, and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred prior to the Reference Time in respect of any setting of the then-current Benchmark, then, (x) if a Benchmark Replacement is determined in accordance with clause (1) or (2) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement” for such Benchmark Replacement Date, in connection with a Benchmark Transition Event, such Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for
    -39-


all purposes hereunder and under any Program Document in respect of such Benchmark setting and subsequent Benchmark settings without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Program Document and (y) if a Benchmark Replacement is determined in accordance with clause (3) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement” for such Benchmark Replacement Date, or in connection with an Early Opt-in Election, such Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Program Document in respect of any Benchmark setting at or after 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date notice of such Benchmark Replacement is provided to Seller without any amendment to this Agreement or any other Program Document, or further action or consent of Seller.

-40-


(v)    Benchmark Unavailability Period. Upon Seller’s receipt of notice of the commencement of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, Seller may revoke any request for the sale to Buyer of a proposed Purchased Asset with a Pricing Rate based on LIBOR.

Buyer shall deliver to Seller a statement setting forth the amount and basis of determination of any Breakage Costs in reasonable detail, it being agreed that such statement and the method of its calculation shall be conclusive and binding upon Seller absent manifest error.  This Section 6(e) shall survive termination of this Agreement and the repurchase of all Purchased Assets subject to Transactions hereunder.
(f)If Buyer becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, the transfer from Buyer of this Agreement and/or the other Program Documents, and any interest and obligation in or under this Agreement and/or the other Program Documents, will be effective to the same extent as the transfer would be effective under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if this Agreement and/or the other Program Documents, and any such interest and obligation, were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States.
(g)If Buyer or a BHC Act Affiliate of Buyer becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, Default Rights under this Agreement and/or the other Program Documents that may be exercised against Buyer are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if this Agreement and/or the other Program Documents were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States.
(h)If Buyer becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this Section 6, it shall promptly notify Seller of the event by reason of which it has become so entitled.

    -41-


Section 7) Buyer receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made in respect of such Indemnified Taxes.

(e)(i) If Buyer is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Program Document, Buyer shall deliver to Seller, at the time or times reasonably requested by Seller, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by Seller as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, Buyer, if reasonably requested by Seller, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Requirements of Law or reasonably requested by Seller as will enable Seller to determine whether or not Buyer is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.

(f)If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 7 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 7), it shall promptly pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 7 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this Section 7(f) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) if such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 7(f), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 7(f) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This Section 7(f) shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
(g)Each party’s obligations under this Section 7 shall survive any assignment of rights by Buyer, the termination of this Agreement and the repurchase by Seller of any or all of the Purchased Assets.
(h)If Buyer requests compensation under Section 6, or requires the Seller to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to Buyer or any Governmental Authority for the account of Buyer pursuant to Section 7, then Buyer shall (at the request of the Seller) use reasonable efforts to designate a different office from which it books the Transactions or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of Buyer, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 6 or 7, as the case may be, in the future, and (ii) would not subject Buyer to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Buyer. The Seller hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Buyer in connection with any such designation or assignment.
(i)If Buyer requests compensation under Section 6, or if the Seller is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to Buyer or any Governmental Authority for the account of Buyer pursuant to Section 7 and, in each case, Buyer has declined or is unable to designate a different office from which it books the Transactions in accordance with Section 7(h), or if Buyer is a Defaulting Party, then the Seller may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to Buyer, require Buyer to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in, and consents required by, Section 18), all of its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Section 6 or Section 7) and obligations under this Agreement and the related Program Documents to an eligible assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Buyer, if a Buyer accepts such assignment); provided that:
(i)    Buyer shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Obligations, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other
-44-


amounts payable to it hereunder and under the other Program Documents from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Seller (in the case of all other amounts);
(ii)    in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 6 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 7, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments thereafter; and
(iii)    such assignment does not conflict with applicable law.
Buyer shall not be required to make any such assignment or delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Buyer or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Seller to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.
SECTION 8.SECURITY INTEREST; BUYER’S APPOINTMENT AS ATTORNEY-IN-FACT
(a)The parties intend that all Transactions hereunder be sales and purchases and not loans (other than as set forth in Section 21 of this Agreement for U.S. tax purposes). However, in order to protect Buyer’s rights with respect to the Purchased Assets and the Program Documents if any such Transactions are nevertheless deemed by a court or Governmental Authority to be loans, and as security for the performance by Seller of all of its Obligations, Seller hereby pledges to Buyer as security for the performance by Seller of its Obligations and hereby grants, assigns and pledges to Buyer a fully perfected first priority security interest in the Purchased Assets (including all Servicing Rights related to such Purchased Assets); the Records related to the Purchased Assets; the Program Documents (to the extent such Program Documents and Seller’s right thereunder relate to the Purchased Assets); any Property relating to any Purchased Asset; any escrow letter or settlement agreement relating to any Purchased Asset; all insurance policies and insurance proceeds relating to any property related to any Purchased Asset, including but not limited to any payments or proceeds under any related hazard insurance; the Control Account; any Hedge Agreements relating to any Purchased Asset; any accounts, instruments (including promissory notes), chattel paper (including electronic chattel paper), contract rights and other general intangibles (including payment intangibles), payments, rights to payment (including payments of interest or finance charges), goods (including equipment and inventory), software, deposit accounts, investment property (including securities, securities accounts and security entitlements) and documents, to the extent that the foregoing relates to any Purchased Asset; and any other assets relating to the Purchased Assets (including, without limitation, any other accounts and Income relating thereto) or any interest in the Purchased Assets; distributions with respect to any of the foregoing; together with all accessions and additions thereto; substitutions and replacements therefor; and all products and proceeds; in all instances, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, now existing or hereafter created and wherever located (collectively, the “Repurchase Assets”). Buyer shall have all of the rights and remedies provided to a secured party by any Requirements of Law (including the rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC and the right to set off any mutual debt and claim) and under any other agreement between Buyer and Seller or any of its Affiliates, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Buyer shall be entitled to set off the proceeds of the liquidation of the Purchased Assets against all of the Obligations, without prejudice to Buyer’s right to recover any deficiency. The possession by Buyer or any of its agents, including Custodian, of the Purchased Asset Documents, the Purchased Assets and such other items of property as constitute instruments, money, negotiable documents, securities or chattel paper shall be deemed to be possession by the secured party for purposes of perfecting such security interest under the UCC and Requirements of Law. Notifications to Persons (other than Buyer) holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from Persons (other than Buyer)
    -45-


holding such property, shall be deemed notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, securities intermediaries, bailees or agents (as applicable) of the secured party for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under the UCC and Requirements of Law. The security interest of Buyer granted herein shall be, and Seller hereby represents and warrants to Buyer that it is, a first priority perfected security interest. For the avoidance of doubt, (i) each Purchased Asset secures the Obligations of Seller with respect to all other Transactions and all other Purchased Assets, including any Purchased Assets that are junior in priority to the Purchased Asset in question, and (ii) if an Event of Default exists, no Purchased Asset will be released from Buyer’s security interest or transferred to Seller until the Obligations are indefeasibly paid in full. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Obligations shall be full recourse to Seller.
(b)Seller acknowledges that it has sold the Purchased Assets to Buyer on a servicing released basis and it has no rights to service the Purchased Assets. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing and if Seller is deemed to retain any residual Servicing Rights, and for the avoidance of doubt, Seller grants, assigns and pledges to Buyer a security interest in the Servicing Rights and proceeds related thereto and in all instances, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, now existing or hereafter created and wherever located. The foregoing provision and the provisions of Section 8(a) of this Agreement are intended to constitute a security agreement or other arrangement or other credit enhancement related to this Agreement and Transactions hereunder as defined under Sections 101(47)(v) and 741(7)(xi) of the Bankruptcy Code.
(c)Seller agrees to execute a Power of Attorney, substantially in the form of Exhibit C to this Agreement (the “Power of Attorney”), to be delivered on the date hereof.
(d)Seller Party hereby authorizes Buyer to file such financing statement or statements relating to the Repurchase Assets (including financing statements describing the collateral as “all assets” or similar description) as Buyer, at its option, may deem appropriate. Seller shall pay the searching and filing costs for any financing statement or statements prepared or searched pursuant to this Agreement.
(e)Buyer and Seller agree that the grant of a security interest under this Section 8 shall not constitute or result in the creation or assumption by Buyer of any other obligation of Seller or any other Person in connection with any Purchased Asset, or any Hedge Agreement whether or not Buyer exercises any right with respect thereto. Seller shall remain liable under the Purchased Assets, and the Purchased Asset Documents to perform all of Seller’s duties and obligations thereunder to the same extent as if the Program Documents had not been executed.
(f)Seller agrees, to the extent permitted by Requirements of Law, that neither it nor anyone claiming through or under it will set up, claim or seek to take advantage of any appraisement, valuation, stay, extension or redemption law now or hereafter in force in any locality where any Purchased Assets may be situated in order to prevent, hinder or delay the enforcement or foreclosure of this Agreement, or the absolute sale of any of the Purchased Assets or any Hedge Agreement relating to a Purchased Asset or any part thereof, or the final and absolute putting into possession thereof, immediately after such sale, of the purchasers thereof, and Seller, for itself and all who may at any time claim through or under it, hereby waives, to the full extent that it may be lawful so to do, the benefit of all such laws and any and all right to have any of the properties or assets constituting the Purchased Assets marshaled upon any such sale, and agrees that Buyer or any court having jurisdiction to foreclose the security interests granted in this Agreement may sell the Purchased Assets as an entirety or in such parcels as Buyer or such court may determine.

SECTION 9.PAYMENT, TRANSFER; ACCOUNTS
(a)Payments and Transfers of Funds. Except in accordance with Section 9(c) below, unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing, all transfers of funds to be made by Seller to Buyer hereunder shall be made in Dollars, in immediately available funds, without deduction, set off or counterclaim, to Buyer at the following account maintained by Buyer, on the date on which such payment shall become due: Account No. 101WA 786 801 001, ABA No.: 026 007 993, Name of Bank: UBS AG, Stamford, CT, Account Name: UBS AG, 1285 Branch, Reference: UBS-Terra CREW Facility.
(b)Remittance of Purchase Price. On the Purchase Date for each Transaction, ownership of the Purchased Assets on a servicing-released basis shall be transferred to Buyer or its designee against the simultaneous transfer of the Purchase Price to Seller at such account designated by Seller in writing. With respect to the Purchased Assets being sold by Seller on a Purchase Date, Seller hereby sells, transfers, conveys and assigns to Buyer or its designee without recourse, but subject to the terms of this Agreement, all the right, title and interest of Seller in and to the Purchased Assets together with all right, title and interest in and to the proceeds of any related Repurchase Assets. All transfers of cash and assets shall be made in accordance with this Agreement. The Servicing Rights and other servicing provisions under this Agreement are not severable from or to be separated from the Purchased Assets under this Agreement; and, such Servicing Rights and other servicing provisions of this Agreement constitute (i) “related terms” under this Agreement within the meaning of Section 101(47)(A)(i) of the Bankruptcy Code and/or (ii) a security agreement or other arrangement or other credit enhancement related to the Program Documents.
(c)Fees. Seller shall pay in immediately available funds to Buyer all fees as and when required hereunder. All such payments shall be made in Dollars, in immediately available funds, without deduction, set-off or counterclaim, to Buyer at such account designated by Buyer.
(d)Revocable Option to Direct Servicing. Buyer hereby grants to Seller a revocable option to direct Buyer with respect to the exercise of all voting and corporate rights with respect to the Purchased Assets (each, a “Revocable Option”) and to vote, take corporate actions and exercise any rights in connection with the Purchased Assets, so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, but subject to all of Buyer’s rights hereunder, including but not limited to, Buyer’s right to consent to Material Actions. Such Revocable Option is not evidence of any ownership or other interest or right of Seller in any Purchased Asset and Seller confirms that, notwithstanding Seller’s exercise of the Revocable Option, Buyer retains ownership of the Purchased Assets on a servicing released basis. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of a Default or Event of Default, the Revocable Option discussed above shall terminate automatically and without further notice or action by Buyer and Buyer shall immediately be entitled to exercise all voting and corporate rights with respect to the Purchased Assets without regard to Seller’s instructions (including, but not limited to, if an Insolvency Event shall occur with respect to Seller) and Buyer shall have the right to terminate any servicing arrangement with respect to any or all Purchased Assets and transfer any or all of the servicing of any or all Purchased Assets to any servicer in Buyer’s sole discretion.

Seller has complied with the covenants set forth in this Section 10 since the date of its formation.
SECTION 11.REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
Except as otherwise expressly provided below, Seller represents and warrants to Buyer that as of the Purchase Date for any Purchased Assets and as of the date of this Agreement and any Transaction hereunder and on each date while the Program Documents are in full force and effect and/or any Transaction hereunder is outstanding:
(a)Acting as Principal. Seller will engage in such Transactions as principal (or, if agreed in writing in advance of any Transaction by the other party hereto, as agent for a disclosed principal).
    -49-


(b)No Broker. Except as disclosed in writing to Buyer by Seller prior of the Purchase Date for the related Transaction, Seller has not dealt with any broker, investment banker, agent, or other Person, except for Buyer, who may be entitled to any commission or compensation in connection with the sale of Purchased Assets pursuant to this Agreement.
(c)Financial Statements. Guarantor has heretofore furnished to Buyer a copy, certified by its president, chief financial officer, treasurer or a vice president of its (a) Financial Statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 and for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, with an unqualified opinion thereon of an Approved CPA and (b) Financial Statements for Guarantor for such quarterly period(s). All such Financial Statements are complete and correct and fairly present, in all respects, the consolidated and consolidating financial condition of each Seller Party and the consolidated and consolidating results of its operations as at such dates and for such monthly periods, all in accordance with GAAP. Since the Annual Financial Statement Date, there has been no material adverse change in the consolidated business, operations or financial condition of Guarantor from that set forth in said Financial Statements nor is Seller or Guarantor aware of any state of facts which (without notice or the lapse of time) would or could be reasonably likely to result in any such material adverse change or could have a Material Adverse Effect. Neither Seller nor Guarantor has, on the Annual Financial Statement Date, any liabilities, direct or indirect, fixed or contingent, matured or unmatured, known or unknown, or liabilities for taxes, long-term leases or unusual forward or long-term commitments not disclosed by, or reserved against in, said balance sheet and related statements, and at the present time there are no unrealized or anticipated losses from any loans, advances or other commitments of either Seller or Guarantor except as heretofore disclosed promptly to Buyer in writing.
(d)Organization, Etc. Each Seller Party is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization. Each Seller Party (a) has all requisite corporate or other power, and has all governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals necessary to own its assets and carry on its business as now being or as proposed to be conducted, except where the lack of such licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals would not be reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect; (b) is qualified to do business and is in good standing in all other jurisdictions in which the nature of the business conducted by it makes such qualification necessary, except where failure so to qualify would not be reasonably likely (either individually or in the aggregate) to have a Material Adverse Effect; and (c) has full power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under the Program Documents.
(e)Authorization, Compliance, Approvals. The execution and delivery of, and the performance by each Seller Party of its obligations under, the Program Documents to which it is a party (a) are within such Seller Party’s powers, (b) have been duly authorized by all requisite action, (c) do not violate any provision of applicable law, rule or regulation, or any order, writ, injunction or decree of any court or other Governmental Authority, or its organizational documents, (d) do not violate any indenture, agreement, document or instrument to which such Seller Party or any of its Subsidiaries is a party, or by which any of them or any of their properties, any of the Repurchase Assets is bound or to which any of them is subject to the extent such conflict or breach would have a Material Adverse Effect, and (e) are not in conflict with, do not result in a breach of, or constitute (with due notice or lapse of time or both) a default under, or except as may be provided by any Program Document, result in the creation or imposition of any Lien (except for any Liens created pursuant to the Program Documents) upon any of the property or assets of such Seller Party or any of its Subsidiaries pursuant to, any such indenture, agreement, document or instrument to the extent that such creation or imposition would have a Material Adverse Effect. No Seller Party is required to obtain any consent, approval or authorization from, or to file any declaration or statement with, any Governmental Authority in connection with or as a condition to the consummation of the Transactions
-50-


contemplated herein and the execution, delivery or performance of the Program Documents to which it is a party.
(f)Litigation. There are no actions, suits, arbitrations, investigations (including, without limitation, any of the foregoing which are pending or, to the best of Seller Parties’ knowledge, threatened) or other legal or arbitrable proceedings affecting any Seller Party or any of its respective Subsidiaries or affecting any of the Repurchase Assets or any of the other properties of such Seller Party before any Governmental Authority which (i) could reasonably be expected to have an adverse and material effect on the validity or enforceability of the Program Documents or any material action to be taken in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, or makes a claim or claims against the Seller in an amount greater than $250,000 or against the Guarantor in an aggregate amount greater than the Litigation Threshold, (ii) individually or in the aggregate, if adversely determined, would be reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect, or (iii) requires a filing by any Seller Party with the SEC.
(g)Purchased Assets.
(i)Seller has not assigned, pledged, or otherwise conveyed or encumbered any Purchased Asset to any other Person other than in accordance with this Agreement, and immediately prior to the sale of such Purchased Asset to Buyer, Seller was the sole owner of such Purchased Asset and had good and marketable title thereto, free and clear of all Liens, in each case except for Liens to be released simultaneously with the sale to Buyer hereunder or created in favor of Buyer hereunder.
(ii)The provisions of this Agreement are effective to either constitute a sale of Purchased Assets to Buyer or to create in favor of Buyer a valid first priority security interest in all right, title and interest of Seller in, to and under the Repurchase Assets.
(iii)Each Purchased Asset is an Eligible Asset. Each representation and warranty of Seller set forth in the Program Documents are true and correct. Each representation and warranty set forth in Schedule 1 and set forth in the Purchased Asset Documents with respect to each Purchased Asset, are true and correct as of the related Purchase Date for such Purchased Asset except as otherwise disclosed in writing on the related Transaction Request and Confirmation or in an Approved Exceptions Report delivered prior to the Purchase Date. Seller has no knowledge of any fact that could reasonably lead it to expect that any Purchased Asset will not be paid in full. No Purchased Asset is or has been the subject of any compromise, adjustment, extension, satisfaction, subordination, rescission, setoff, counterclaim, defense, abatement, suspension, deferment, deduction, reduction, termination or modification, whether arising out of transactions concerning such Purchased Asset or otherwise, by Seller or any Affiliate of Seller, any Transferor, any Mortgagor, Guarantor or any other Person. The purchase of each proposed Purchased Asset was underwritten in accordance with and satisfies applicable standards established by Seller and Guarantor. None of the Purchased Asset Documents has any marks or notations indicating that it has been sold, assigned, pledged, encumbered or otherwise conveyed to any Person other than Buyer. If any Purchased Asset Document requires the holder or transferee of the related Purchased Asset to be a qualified transferee, qualified institutional lender or qualified lender (however defined), Seller meets such requirement. Assuming that Buyer also meets such requirement, the assignment and pledge of such Purchased Asset to Buyer pursuant to the Program Documents do not violate such Purchased Asset Document. Seller and any other Person that at any time has any or had ownership interest in any of the Servicing Rights related to any of the Purchased Assets have each sold and transferred all Servicing Rights with respect to the Purchased Assets to Buyer.
    -51-


(h)Proper Names; Chief Executive Office/Jurisdiction of Organization. Seller does not operate in any jurisdiction under a trade name, division name or name other than those names previously disclosed in writing by Seller to Buyer. Each of Seller’s and Pledgor’s jurisdiction of organization, type of organization and organizational identification number as of the date hereof is as set forth in the Pricing Letter. Guarantor’s jurisdiction of organization, type of organization and organizational identification number as of the date hereof is as set forth in the Pricing Letter. Seller’s exact legal name as of the date hereof is set forth in the preamble and signature pages of this Agreement. Seller’s location (within the meaning of Article 9 of the UCC), chief executive office and the office where Seller keeps all records (within the meaning of Article 9 of the UCC) relating to the Purchased Assets as of the date hereof is at the address of Seller referred to in the Pricing Letter. Seller has not changed its name or location within the past twelve (12) months. Seller and Pledgor shall provide Buyer with thirty (30) days advance notice of any change in its principal office or place of business or jurisdiction. During the five (5) years preceding the date of this Agreement, neither Seller nor Pledgor has been known by or done business under any other name, corporate or fictitious, and neither Seller nor Pledgor have filed or had filed against it any bankruptcy receivership or similar petitions or made any assignments for the benefit of creditors.

Seller has no Subsidiaries.
(i)Location of Books and Records. The location where Seller keeps its books and records, including all computer tapes, computer systems and storage media and records related to the Repurchase Assets to the extent not held by another party pursuant to the Program Documents is its chief executive office or as otherwise disclosed in writing to Buyer.
(j)Enforceability. This Agreement and all of the other Program Documents executed and delivered by each Seller Party in connection herewith are legal, valid and binding obligations of such Seller Party and are enforceable against such Seller Party in accordance with their terms except as such enforceability may be limited by (i) the effect of any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar Requirements of Law affecting creditors’ rights generally and (ii) general principles of equity.
(k)Ability to Perform. No Seller Party believes, nor does such Seller Party have any reason or cause to believe, that it cannot perform each and every covenant contained in the Program Documents to which it is a party on its part to be performed.
(l)No Default. No Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing with respect to Program Documents. No default or event of default (however defined) exists under any Indebtedness, Guarantee Obligations or contractual obligations of Seller that would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Seller reasonably expects that it is and will be able to pay and perform each agreement, duty, obligation and covenant contained in the Program Documents and Purchased Asset Documents to which it is a party, and that it is not subject to any agreement, obligation, restriction or Requirements of Law that would unduly burden its ability to do so or could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Seller has no knowledge of any actual or prospective development, event or other fact that could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Seller has delivered to Buyer all underlying servicing agreements (or provided Buyer with access to a service, internet website or other system where Buyer can successfully access such agreements) with respect to the Purchased Assets, and to Seller’s knowledge no material default or event of default (however defined) exists thereunder.
(m)No Adverse Selection. Seller has not selected the Purchased Assets in a manner so as to adversely affect Buyer’s interests.
-52-


(n)Scheduled Indebtedness. All Indebtedness of each Seller Party which is in effect and/or outstanding as of the date of this Agreement is listed on Schedule 3 hereto (the “Scheduled Indebtedness”) and no material defaults or events of default exist thereunder.
(o)Accurate and Complete Disclosure. The reports, Financial Statements, exhibits and schedules furnished in writing by or on behalf of each Seller Party to Buyer in connection with the negotiation, preparation or delivery of this Agreement or performance hereof and the other Program Documents or included herein or therein or delivered pursuant hereto or thereto, when taken as a whole, do not contain any untrue statement of material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements herein or therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. All written information furnished after the date hereof by or on behalf of each Seller Party to Buyer in connection with this Agreement and the other Program Documents and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby will be true, complete and accurate in every material respect, or (in the case of projections) based on reasonable estimates, on the date as of which such information is stated or certified. There is no fact known to Seller after due inquiry, that could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect that has not been disclosed herein, in the other Program Documents or in a report, financial statement, exhibit, schedule, disclosure letter or other writing furnished to Buyer for use in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby.
(p)Margin Regulations. The use of all funds acquired by Seller under this Agreement will not conflict with or contravene any of Regulations T, U or X promulgated by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as the same may from time to time be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified. The proceeds of the Transaction will not be used by Seller for the purpose of buying or carrying, and will not be secured directly or indirectly by, “margin stock” as such term is defined in Regulation U of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (or any successor), as the same may be modified and supplemented and in effect from time to time.

SECTION 14.REMEDIES
(a)If an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, the following rights and remedies are available to Buyer; provided, that an Event of Default shall be deemed to be continuing unless expressly waived by Buyer in writing.
(i)At the option of Buyer, exercised by written or electronic notice to Seller (which option shall be deemed to have been exercised, even if no notice is given, automatically and immediately upon the occurrence of an Insolvency Event of a Seller Party), the Repurchase Date for each Transaction hereunder, if it has not already occurred, shall be deemed immediately to occur (the “Accelerated Repurchase Date”).
(ii)If Buyer exercises or is deemed to have exercised the option referred to in subsection (a)(i) of this Section 14(a), (1) Seller’s obligations in such Transactions to repurchase all Purchased Assets, at the Repurchase Price therefor on the Accelerated Repurchase Date, shall thereupon become immediately due and payable, (2) all Income paid after such exercise or deemed exercise shall be retained by Buyer and applied to the aggregate unpaid Repurchase Price and any other amounts owed by Seller hereunder and (3) Seller shall have no further right to cure any Events of Default.
(iii)To the extent permitted by any applicable Requirements of Law, the Repurchase Price with respect to each such Transaction shall be increased to an amount equal to the aggregate amount obtained by daily application of, on a 360 day per year basis for the actual number of days during the period from and including the date of the occurrence of the related Event of Default or deemed Event of Default, to but excluding the date of payment of the Repurchase Price as so increased, (x) the Post-Default Rate in effect following an Event of Default to (y) the Repurchase Price for such Transaction as of the Accelerated Repurchase Date (decreased as of any day by (i) any amounts applied by Buyer pursuant to clause (C) of this subsection, and (ii) any proceeds from the sale of Purchased Assets applied to the Repurchase Price pursuant to subsection (a)(iv) of this Section.

    -67-


the possession of Seller or any third party acting for Seller (including Loan Servicer) and Seller shall deliver to Buyer such assignments as Buyer shall request. In addition, at any time thereafter Buyer may deliver to any Mortgagor, and any servicer, paying agent or similar Person with respect to any Purchased Asset (as applicable), a duly completed Notice to Mortgagor held by Custodian pursuant to Section 3(b)(xiv) of this Agreement), and Buyer may complete any assignments, allonges, endorsements, powers or other documents or instruments executed in blank and Seller shall deliver to Buyer such assignments and other documents with respect thereto as Buyer shall request. Buyer shall be entitled to specific performance of all agreements of Seller contained in the Program Documents.
(vi)Buyer may immediately, at any time, and from time to time, exercise either of the following remedies with respect to any or all of the Purchased Assets: (i) sell such Purchased Assets on a servicing-released basis and/or without providing any representations and warranties on an “as-is where is” basis, in a recognized market and by means of a public or private sale at such price or prices as Buyer accepts, and apply the net proceeds thereof in accordance with Section 5 of this Agreement, or (ii) retain such Purchased Assets and give Seller credit against the Repurchase Price for such Purchased Assets (or if the amount of such credit exceeds the Repurchase Price for such Purchased Assets, to credit against Obligations due and any other amounts (without duplication) then owing to Buyer by any other Person pursuant to any Program Document, in such order and in such amounts as determined by Buyer), in an amount equal to the market value of such Purchased Assets on the date of the related Event of Default. Until such time as Buyer exercises either such remedy with respect to a Purchased Asset, Buyer may hold such Purchased Asset for its own account and retain all Income with respect thereto.
(vii)Seller shall be liable to Buyer for (A) the amount of all reasonable legal or other expenses (including, without limitation, all costs and expenses of Buyer in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement or any other agreement evidencing a Transaction, whether in action, suit or litigation or bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar proceeding affecting creditors’ rights generally, further including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel (including the costs of internal counsel of Buyer) incurred in connection with or as a result of an Event of Default which is continuing, (B) damages in an amount equal to the cost (including all fees, expenses and commissions) of Buyer entering into replacement transactions and entering into or terminating hedge transactions in connection with or as a result of an Event of Default which is continuing, (C) any other loss, damage, cost or expense directly arising or resulting from the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default in respect of a Transaction, (D) any amount by which the Obligations due to Buyer exceed the aggregate of the net proceeds and credits referred to in Section 14(a)(iv) of this Agreement, (E) the amount of all actual out-of-pocket expenses, including reasonable legal fees and expenses, actually incurred by Buyer in connection with or as a consequence of an Event of Default, (iii) any costs and losses payable under Section 15(b) of this Agreement, and (F) any other actual loss, damage, cost or expense resulting from the occurrence of an Event of Default.
(viii)During the existence of one or more Events of Default and, in any event, at any time on and after the Accelerated Repurchase Date, Buyer shall have, in addition to its rights hereunder, any rights otherwise available to it under any other agreement or any applicable Requirements of Law.
(b)Buyer may exercise one or more of the remedies available hereunder immediately upon the occurrence of an Event of Default that is continuing on such date and at any time thereafter without notice to Seller. All rights and remedies of Buyer under the Program
-68-


Documents, including those set forth in this Section 14, are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies that Buyer may have and may be exercised at any time when an Event of Default exists. Such rights and remedies may be enforced without prior judicial process or hearing. Seller agrees that nonjudicial remedies are consistent with the usages of the trade, are responsive to commercial necessity and are the result of a bargain at arm’s-length. Seller hereby expressly waives any defenses Seller might have to require Buyer to enforce its rights by judicial process or otherwise arising from the use of nonjudicial process, disposition of any or all of the Purchased Assets, or any other election of remedies.
(c)Seller Parties recognize that the market for the Purchased Assets and/or Repurchase Assets may not be liquid and as a result it may not be possible for Buyer to sell all of the Purchased Assets and/or Repurchase Assets on a particular Business Day, or in a transaction with the same purchaser, or in the same manner and agree that the Purchased Assets are of such a nature that they may decline rapidly in value, and may not have a ready or liquid market. Accordingly, Buyer shall not be required to sell more than one Purchased Asset on a particular Business Day, to the same purchaser or in the same manner. Buyer may determine whether, when and in what manner a Purchased Asset shall be sold, it being agreed that both a good faith public and a good faith private sale shall be deemed to be commercially reasonable. Buyer shall not be required to give notice to Seller or any other Person prior to exercising any remedy in respect of an Event of Default. If no prior notice is given, Buyer shall give notice to Seller of the remedies exercised by Buyer promptly thereafter. In view of the nature of the Purchased Assets and Repurchase Assets, Seller Parties agree that liquidation of any Purchased Asset and/or Repurchase Asset may be conducted in a private sale. Seller Parties acknowledge and agree that any such private sale may result in prices and other terms less favorable to Buyer than if such sale were a public sale, and notwithstanding such circumstances, agrees that any such private sale shall be deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner. Seller Parties further agree that it would not be commercially unreasonable for Buyer to dispose of any Purchased Asset and/or Repurchase Asset by using internet sites that provide for the auction or sale of assets similar to the Purchased Assets and/or Repurchase Assets, or that have the reasonable capability of doing so, or that match buyers and Seller of assets.
(d)Buyer may enforce its rights and remedies hereunder without prior judicial process or hearing, and each Seller Party hereby expressly waives any defenses such Seller Party might otherwise have to require Buyer to enforce its rights by judicial process. Each Seller Party also waives any defense (other than a defense of payment or performance) such Seller Party might otherwise have arising from the use of nonjudicial process, enforcement and sale of all or any portion of the Repurchase Assets, or from any other election of remedies. Each Seller Party recognizes that nonjudicial remedies are consistent with the usages of the trade, are responsive to commercial necessity and are the result of a bargain at arm’s length.
(e)To the extent permitted by any applicable Requirements of Law, Seller shall be liable to Buyer for interest on any amounts owing by Seller hereunder, from the date Seller become liable for such amounts hereunder until such amounts are (i) paid in full by Seller or (ii) satisfied in full by the exercise of Buyer’s rights hereunder. Interest on any sum payable by Seller to Buyer under this Section 14(e) shall be at a rate equal to the Post-Default Rate.
(f)Without limiting the rights of Buyer hereto to pursue all other legal and equitable rights available to Buyer for any Seller Party’s failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement, each Seller Party acknowledges and agrees that the remedy at law for any failure to perform obligations hereunder would be inadequate and Buyer shall be entitled to specific performance, injunctive relief, or other equitable remedies in the event of any such failure. The availability of these remedies shall not prohibit Buyer from pursuing any other remedies for such breach, including the recovery of monetary damages.
    -69-


(g)After the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Seller hereby appoints Buyer as attorney-in-fact of Seller for purposes of carrying out the Program Documents, including executing, endorsing and recording any instruments or documents and taking any other actions that Buyer deems necessary or advisable to accomplish such purposes, which appointment is coupled with an interest and is irrevocable.
(h)Buyer may, without prior notice to Seller, exercise any or all of its set-off rights including those set forth in Section 22 of this Agreement and pursuant to any other Program Document, provided that Buyer will endeavor to provide Seller with notice of such exercise promptly thereafter. This Section 14(h) shall be without prejudice and in addition to any right of set-off, combination of accounts, Lien or other rights to which Buyer is at any time otherwise entitled.
(i)All amounts in the Control Account and all Income paid after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, and, in any event, at all times after the Accelerated Repurchase Date shall be retained by Buyer and applied in accordance with Section 5(d) of this Agreement.
SECTION 15.INDEMNIFICATION AND EXPENSES; RECOURSE
(a)Seller shall indemnify Buyer and each of its Affiliates (each such Person being called an “Indemnified Party”) against, and hold each Indemnified Party harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses (including the fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Indemnified Party), and shall indemnify and hold harmless each Indemnified Party from all fees and time charges and disbursements for attorneys who may be employees of any Indemnified Party, incurred by any Indemnified Party or asserted against any Indemnified Party by any Person (including Seller or any other Seller Party) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of this Agreement, any other Program Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, the performance by the parties hereto of their respective obligations hereunder or thereunder or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, (ii) any Purchased Asset or the use or proposed use of the proceeds from any Transaction, (iii) any actual or alleged presence or Release of Materials of Environmental Concern on or from any property owned or operated by Seller or any of its Affiliates, or any liability under any Environmental Law related in any way to any Purchased Asset, or Seller or any of its Affiliates, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory, whether brought by a third party or by Seller or any of its Affiliates, and regardless of whether any Indemnified Party is a party thereto; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnified Party, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses (x) are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnified Party or (y) result from a claim brought by Seller or any of its Affiliates against an Indemnified Party for breach in bad faith of such Indemnified Party's obligations hereunder or under any other Program Document, if Seller or any of its Affiliates has obtained a final and nonappealable judgment in its favor on such claim as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction. This Section 15(a) shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent losses, claims, damages, etc. arising from any non-Tax claim.
(b)Seller agrees to pay as and when billed by Buyer all of the out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by Buyer in connection with the development, preparation and execution of this Agreement, any other Program Document or any other documents prepared in connection herewith or therewith.

Buyer in connection with the preparation of the Program Documents. Seller shall pay as and when billed all of the out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by Buyer in connection with any amendment, supplement or modification to, this Agreement, any other Program Document or any other documents prepared in connection herewith or therewith.

(b)Seller agrees that Buyer is the owner of all Servicing Rights and all Servicing Records, including, but not limited to, any and all servicing agreements (including, without limitation, the Servicing Agreement or any other servicing and/or subservicing agreement relating to the servicing of any or all of the Purchased Assets), together with all files, documents, records, data bases, computer tapes, copies of computer tapes, proof of insurance coverage, insurance policies, appraisals, other closing documentation, payment history records, and any other records relating to or evidencing the servicing and/or subservicing of Purchased Assets (the “Servicing Records”), so long as the Purchased Assets are subject to this Agreement. Seller covenants to safeguard such Servicing Records and to deliver them promptly to Buyer or its designee (including Custodian) at Buyer’s request.
(c)Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Buyer may, in its sole discretion, (i) sell its right to the Purchased Assets on a servicing released basis and/or (ii) terminate Loan Servicer or any other servicer or sub servicer of the Purchased Assets (including, without limitation, Seller, in its capacity as servicer of the Purchased Assets), with or without cause, in each case without payment of any termination fee.

Each Seller Party acknowledges that Buyer has the right to perform continuing due diligence reviews with respect to the Purchased Assets, Seller Parties, Loan Servicer and other parties which may be involved in or related to Transactions (but, with respect to Loan Servicer, subject to the requirements of the Servicing Agreement) (collectively, “Third Party Transaction Parties”), as deemed appropriate by Buyer in its sole good faith discretion, for purposes of verifying compliance with the representations, warranties and specifications made hereunder, and Seller Parties and Loan Servicer each agree that upon reasonable prior notice to Seller Parties or Loan Servicer, as applicable, unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, in which case no notice is required, Buyer or its authorized representatives will be permitted at reasonable times, upon reasonable notice, to examine, inspect, and make copies and extracts of, the Mortgage Asset Files and any and all documents, records, agreements, instruments or information relating to such Purchased Assets in the possession or under the control of any Seller Party or Loan Servicer; provided however, that unless a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Seller shall only be responsible one (1) time in any one (1) year period to pay for Buyer’s reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in connection with such a review. Any inspection during any time that a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing shall be at Seller’s sole cost and expense. Seller Parties
-72-


will use commercially reasonable efforts to cause Third Party Transaction Parties to cooperate with any due diligence requests of Buyer. Seller Parties and Loan Servicer shall also make available to Buyer upon reasonable prior notice a knowledgeable financial or accounting officer for the purpose of answering questions respecting the Asset Files and the Purchased Assets. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Seller acknowledges that Buyer may purchase Purchased Assets from Seller based solely upon the information provided by Seller to Buyer in the Transaction Request and Confirmation and the representations, warranties and covenants contained herein, and that Buyer, at its option, has the right at any time to cause Loan Servicer or its agent to conduct a partial or complete due diligence review on some or all of the Purchased Assets purchased in a Transaction, including, without limitation, ordering new Qualified Appraisals on the related Mortgaged Properties and otherwise re-generating the information used to originate such Purchased Asset and reviewing intercreditor agreements, property management agreements, formation documents of the property owners and their direct and indirect owners, financial statements, environmental and engineering reports, underlying title policies including owner’s and UCC-9 title insurance policies, legal opinions and other documents as may be mutually agreed among Seller and Buyer. For the avoidance of doubt, Buyer shall have the right to perform due diligence on the Purchased Assets prior to the Purchase Date and as necessary during the term of this Agreement, as determined by Buyer in is sole discretion, subject to the terms of the Mortgage Loan Documents. Buyer may underwrite such Purchased Assets itself or engage a mutually agreed upon third party underwriter to perform such underwriting. Seller and Loan Servicer agree to cooperate with Buyer and any third party underwriter in connection with such underwriting, including, but not limited to, providing Buyer and any third party underwriter with access to any and all documents, records, agreements, instruments or information relating to such Purchased Assets in the possession, or under the control, of Seller Parties or Loan Servicer. Seller further agrees that it shall pay, to the extent Seller has received an invoice therefor, all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by Buyer in connection with Buyer’s activities pursuant to this Section 17.
SECTION 18.ASSIGNABILITY
The rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement and under any Transaction shall not be assigned by any Seller Party without the prior written consent of Buyer. Buyer may from time to time, without the consent of Seller, assign all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and the Program Documents to any party including, without limitation, any Affiliate of Buyer, pursuant to an executed assignment and acceptance by Buyer and assignee (“Assignment and Acceptance”), specifying the percentage or portion of such rights and obligations assigned; provided, however, that so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, any such assignee is not a Prohibited Transferee; provided further, however, Seller shall not be charged for, incur or be required to reimburse Buyer or any other Person for any cost or expense relating to such assignment. Upon such assignment and assumption, (a) such assignee shall be a party hereto and to each Program Document to the extent of the percentage or portion set forth in the Assignment and Acceptance, and shall succeed to the applicable rights and obligations of Buyer hereunder, and (b) Buyer shall, to the extent that such rights and obligations have been so assigned by it be released from its obligations hereunder and under the Program Documents. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement and any Transactions shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and assigns. Nothing in this Agreement express or implied, shall give to any Person, other than the parties to this Agreement and their successors hereunder, any benefit of any legal or equitable right, power, remedy or claim under this Agreement. Unless otherwise stated in the Assignment and Acceptance, Seller shall continue to take directions solely from Buyer unless otherwise notified by Buyer in writing.
Buyer may sell participations to one or more Persons in or to all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement; provided however, that so long as no Event of
    -73-


Default has occurred and is continuing, any such assignee is not a Prohibited Transferee; provided, further, however, that (i) Buyer’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) Buyer shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, (iii) Seller shall continue to deal solely and directly with Buyer in connection with Buyer’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Program Documents and (iv) Seller shall not be charged for, incur or be required to reimburse Buyer or any other Person for any cost or expense relating to such participation. Seller agrees that any participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 6(a) and Section 7 of this Agreement (subject to the limitations and requirements under Section 7 of this Agreement (it being understood that the applicable documentation required under Section 7(e) of this Agreement shall be delivered to the participating Buyer)); provided that, no participant will be entitled to any greater payment under Section 6(a) or Section 7 of this Agreement, than its participating Buyer would have been entitled to receive with respect to the applicable participated rights and obligations.
Buyer may, in connection with any assignment or participation or proposed assignment or participation pursuant to this Section 18, disclose to the assignee or participant or proposed assignee or participant, as the case may be, any information relating to any Seller Party or to any aspect of the Transactions that has been furnished to Buyer by or on behalf of any Seller Party; provided that such assignee or participant agrees to hold such information subject to the confidentiality provisions of this Agreement and any confidentiality provisions applicable to any of the documents related thereto.
In the event Buyer assigns all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement, the parties hereto agree to negotiate in good faith an amendment to this Agreement to add agency provisions similar to those included in agreements for similar syndicated repurchase facilities and that Seller shall not be charged for, incur or be required to reimburse Buyer or any other Person for any cost or expense relating to such sale, participation, assignment or transfer.
SECTION 19.TRANSFER AND MAINTENANCE OF REGISTER.
(a)Subject to acceptance and recording thereof pursuant to Section 19(b) of this Agreement from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Acceptance the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Acceptance, have the rights and obligations of Buyer under this Agreement. Any assignment or transfer by Buyer of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 19 shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Buyer of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with Section 19(b) of this Agreement.
(b)Buyer shall maintain, on Seller’s behalf, a register (the “Register”) on which it will record each Assignment and Acceptance and participation. The Register shall include the names and addresses of Buyer (including all assignees, successors and participants) and the percentage or portion of such rights and obligations assigned; provided that, no Buyer shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Register to the extent that it relates to participants (including the identity of any participant or any information relating to a participant’s interest in any rights or obligations under this Agreement and the other Program Documents) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such rights or obligations are in registered form in accordance with Section 5f.103-1(c) of the Treasury Regulations. Failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation shall not affect Seller’s obligations in respect of such rights. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error and the parties shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Buyer or participant, as applicable, for all
-74-


purposes of this Agreement. No assignment shall be effective unless recorded in the Register. This Section 19(b) shall be construed so that all Obligations are at all times maintained in “registered form” within the meaning of Section 163(f), 871(h)(2) and 881(c)(2) of the Code and any related Treasury regulations (or any other relevant or successor provisions of the Code or of such Treasury regulations).
SECTION 20.HYPOTHECATION OR PLEDGE OF PURCHASED ASSETS
Title to all Purchased Assets and Repurchase Assets shall pass to Buyer and Buyer shall have free and unrestricted use of all Purchased Assets. Nothing in this Agreement shall preclude Buyer from engaging in repurchase transactions with the Purchased Assets or otherwise pledging, repledging, transferring, hypothecating, or rehypothecating the Purchased Assets to any Person, subject to Buyer’s obligations to resell the Purchased Assets to Seller as provided in this Agreement. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall obligate Buyer to segregate any Purchased Assets delivered to Buyer by Seller.
SECTION 21.TAX TREATMENT
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Program Documents, each party to this Agreement acknowledges that it is its intent for U.S. federal, state and local income and franchise tax purposes to treat each (i) Transaction as Indebtedness of Seller that is secured by the Purchased Assets and (ii) the Purchased Assets as owned by Seller in the absence of an Event of Default which is continuing. All parties to this Agreement agree to such treatment and agree to take no action inconsistent with this treatment, unless required by any Requirements of Law (in which case such party shall promptly notify the other party of such Requirements of Law).
SECTION 22.SET-OFF
In addition to any rights and remedies of Buyer hereunder and by law, Buyer shall have the right, without prior notice to any Seller Party, any such notice being expressly waived by each Seller Party to the extent permitted by applicable law, to set-off and appropriate and apply against any Obligation from any Seller Party or any Affiliate thereof to Buyer or any of its Affiliates any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other obligation (including to return excess margin), credits, indebtedness or claims or cash, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, at any time held or owing by or due from Buyer or any Affiliate thereof to or for the credit or the account of any Seller Party or any Affiliate thereof. Buyer agrees promptly to notify Seller Parties after any such set-off and application made by Buyer; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.
Buyer shall at any time have the right, in each case until such time as Buyer determines otherwise, to retain, to suspend payment or performance of, or to decline to remit, any amount or property that Buyer would otherwise be obligated to pay, remit or deliver to Seller hereunder if an Event of Default or Default has occurred and is continuing.
SECTION 23.SURVIVAL
Each representation and warranty made or deemed to be made by entering into a Transaction, herein or pursuant hereto shall survive the making of such representation and warranty, and Buyer shall not be deemed to have waived any Default or Event of Default that may arise because any such representation or warranty shall have proved to be false or misleading, notwithstanding that Buyer may have had notice or knowledge or reason to believe that such representation or warranty was false or misleading at the time the Transaction was
    -75-


made. Notwithstanding any such termination or the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default, all of the representations and warranties and covenants hereunder shall continue and survive (other than the representations and warranties set forth in Schedule 1, which shall survive with respect to the Purchased Asset until each such Purchased Asset is repurchased in accordance with this Agreement). The obligations of each Seller Party under Sections 6, 7, 15, and 31 of this Agreement shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
SECTION 24.NOTICES AND OTHER COMMUNICATIONS
Except as otherwise expressly permitted by this Agreement, all notices, requests and other communications provided for herein (including without limitation any modifications of, or waivers, requests or consents under, this Agreement) shall be given or made in writing (including without limitation by electronic transmission) delivered to the intended recipient at the “Address for Notices” specified below its name on the signature pages hereof or thereof); and as to any party, at such other address as shall be designated by such party in a written notice to each other party. In all cases, to the extent that the related individual set forth in the respective “Attention” line is no longer employed by the respective Person, such notice may be given to the attention of a Responsible Officer of the respective Person or to the attention of such individual or individuals as subsequently notified in writing by a Responsible Officer of the respective Person. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement and except for notices given under Section 3 of this Agreement (which shall be effective only on receipt), all such communications shall be deemed to have been duly given when successfully transmitted electronically or personally delivered or, in the case of a mailed notice, upon receipt, in each case given or addressed as aforesaid.
SECTION 25.USE OF ELECTRONIC MEDIA
Seller acknowledges and agrees that Buyer may require or permit certain transactions with Buyer be conducted electronically using Electronic Records and/or Electronic Signatures. Seller consents to the use of Electronic Records and/or Electronic Signatures whenever expressly required or permitted by Buyer and acknowledges and agrees that Seller shall be bound by their respective Electronic Signature and by the terms, conditions, requirements, information and/or instructions contained in any such Electronic Records.
Seller agrees to adopt as its Electronic Signature its user identification codes, passwords, personal identification numbers, access codes, a facsimile image of a written signature and/or other symbols or processes as provided or required by Buyer from time to time (as a group, any subgroup thereof or individually, hereinafter referred to as Seller’s Electronic Signature). Seller acknowledges that Buyer will rely on any and all Electronic Records and on Seller’s Electronic Signature transmitted or submitted to Buyer.
Buyer shall not be liable for the failure of either its or Seller’s internet service provider, or any other telecommunications company, telephone company, satellite company or cable company to timely, properly and accurately transmit any Electronic Record or fax copy.
Before engaging in Electronic Transactions with Seller, Buyer may provide Seller, or require Seller to create, user identification codes, passwords, personal identification numbers and/or access codes, as applicable, to permit access to Buyer’s computer information processing system. Seller shall be fully responsible for protecting and safeguarding any and all user identification codes, passwords, personal identification numbers and access codes provided or required by Buyer. Seller shall adopt and maintain security measures to prevent the loss, theft or unauthorized or improper disclosure or use of any and all user identification codes, passwords, personal identification numbers and/or access codes by Persons other than the individual Person who is authorized to use such information.
-76-


Seller understands and agrees that they shall be fully responsible for protecting and safeguarding their computer hardware and software from any and all (a) computer “viruses,” “time bombs,” “trojan horses” or other harmful computer information, commands, codes or programs that may cause or facilitate the destruction, corruption, malfunction or appropriation of, or damage or change to, any of Seller’s computer information processing systems, including without limitation, all hardware, software, Electronic Records, information, data and/or codes and (b) computer “worms,” “trap doors” or other harmful computer information, commands, codes or programs that enable unauthorized access to Seller’s computer information processing systems, including without limitation, all hardware, software, Electronic Records, information, data and/or codes.
If Buyer, from time to time, establishes minimum security standards, Seller shall comply with such minimum security standards within the time period established by Buyer. Buyer shall have the right to confirm Seller’s compliance with any such minimum security standards. Seller’s compliance with such minimum security standards shall not relieve Seller from any of its liability set forth herein.
Whether or not Buyer establishes minimum security standards, Seller shall continue to be fully responsible for adopting and maintaining security measures that are consistent with the risks associated with conducting Electronic Transactions with Buyer. Seller’s failure to adopt and maintain appropriate security measures or to comply with any minimum security standards established by Buyer may result in, among other things, termination of Seller’s access to Buyer’s computer information processing systems.
SECTION 26.ENTIRE AGREEMENT; SEVERABILITY; SINGLE AGREEMENT
This Agreement, together with the other Program Documents, constitute the entire understanding between Buyer and Seller Parties with respect to the subject matter they cover and shall supersede any existing agreements between the parties containing general terms and conditions for repurchase transactions involving Purchased Assets. By acceptance of this Agreement, Buyer and Seller Parties each acknowledge that they have not made, and are not relying upon, any statements, representations, promises or undertakings not contained in this Agreement. Each provision and agreement herein shall be treated as separate and independent from any other provision or agreement herein and shall be enforceable notwithstanding the unenforceability of any such other provision or agreement.

SECTION 29.NO WAIVERS, ETC.
No failure on the part of Buyer to exercise and no delay in exercising, and no course of dealing with respect to, any right, power or privilege under any Program Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege under any Program Document preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.

    -79-


Transactions, without the prior written consent of Buyer. The provisions set forth in this Section 31 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
SECTION 32.INTENT
(a)The parties intend and recognize that (i) this Agreement, together with all Transactions, constitutes a single agreement; (ii) this Agreement and each Transaction, to the extent that it has a Repurchase Date less than one year after the Purchase Date, qualifies as a “repurchase agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code; (iii) this Agreement and each Transaction is a “securities contract” as that term is defined in Section 741 of the Bankruptcy Code; (iv) this Agreement is a “master netting agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101(38A)(A) of the Bankruptcy Code; (v) each payment hereunder has been made by, to or for the benefit of a “financial institution” as defined in section 101(22) of the Bankruptcy Code, a “financial participant” as defined in section 101(22A) of the Bankruptcy Code or “repo participant” as defined in section 101(46) of the Bankruptcy Code; and (vi) the grant of a security interest set forth in Section 8 of this Agreement constitutes “a security agreement or other arrangement or other credit enhancement” that is “related to” this Agreement and Transactions hereunder within the meaning of Sections 101(38A)(A), 101(47)(A)(v) and 741(7)(A)(xi) of the Bankruptcy Code. Seller and Buyer further recognize and intend that this Agreement is an agreement to provide financial accommodations and is not subject to assumption pursuant to Bankruptcy Code Section 365(a).
(b)Buyer’s right to liquidate the Purchased Assets delivered to it in connection with the Transactions hereunder or to accelerate or terminate this Agreement or otherwise exercise any other remedies pursuant to Section 14 of this Agreement is a contractual right to liquidate, accelerate or terminate such Transaction as described in Bankruptcy Code Sections 555, 559 and 561 and the Buyer shall be entitled to, without limitation, the liquidation, termination, acceleration, offset, net out and non-avoidability rights afforded to parties to repurchase agreements, securities contracts, and master netting agreements under Sections 362(b)(6), 362(b)(7), 362(b)(27), 362(o), 546(e), 546(f), 546(j), 555, 559 and 561 of the Bankruptcy Code.
(c)The parties agree and acknowledge that if a party hereto is an “insured depository institution,” as such term is defined in the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, as amended (“FDIA”), then each Transaction hereunder is a “qualified financial contract,” as that term is defined in FDIA and any rules, orders or policy statements thereunder (except insofar as the type of assets subject to such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable).
(d)It is understood that this Agreement constitutes a “netting contract” as defined in and subject to Title IV of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (“FDICIA”) and each payment entitlement and payment obligation under any Transaction hereunder shall constitute a “covered contractual payment entitlement” or “covered contractual payment obligation”, respectively, as defined in and subject to FDICIA (except insofar as one or both of the parties is not a “financial institution” as that term is defined in FDICIA).
(e)Each party agrees that this Agreement is intended to create mutuality of obligations among the parties, and as such, this Agreement constitutes a contract which (i) is between all of the parties and (ii) places each party in the same right and capacity.

-80-


Exchange Commission (“SEC”) under Section 15 of the 1934 Act, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation has taken the position that the provisions of the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970 do not protect the other party with respect to any Transaction hereunder and (b) in the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a financial institution, funds held by the financial institution pursuant to a Transaction hereunder are not a deposit and therefore are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, as applicable.

SCHEDULE 1
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
REGARDING EACH INDIVIDUAL PURCHASED ASSET THAT IS A
COMMERCIAL MORTGAGE LOAN

With respect to each Purchased Asset that is a Commercial Mortgage Loan, Seller hereby represents and warrants, as of the date herein specified or, if no such date is specified, as of the Purchase Date, that; provided that such representations and warranties with respect to any Purchased Asset shall be deemed to be modified by any Approved Exceptions Report with respect to such Purchased Asset:
1.Whole Loan; Ownership of Purchased Assets. Except with respect to any Purchased Asset that is a Participation Interest, each Purchased Asset is a whole loan and not a Participation Interest in a Mortgage Loan. Each Participation Interest is a senior portion (or a pari passu portion of a senior portion) of a whole Mortgage Loan evidenced by a senior note. At the time of the sale, transfer and assignment to Buyer, no Mortgage Note or Mortgage was subject to any assignment (other than assignments to Seller), participation (other than with respect to any Purchased Asset that is a Participation Interest) or pledge, and Seller had good title to, and was the sole record, beneficial owner of, each Purchased Asset free and clear of any and all Liens, charges, pledges, encumbrances, participations (other than with respect to a Purchased Asset that is a Participation Interest), any other ownership interests (other than with respect to a Purchased Asset that is a Participation Interest) on, in or to such Purchased Asset other than any servicing rights appointment or similar agreement. Seller has full right and authority to sell, assign and transfer each Purchased Asset, and, upon the completion of the assignee information therein and Buyer’s countersignature where applicable, the assignment to Buyer constitutes a legal, valid and binding assignment of such Purchased Asset free and clear of any and all Liens, pledges, charges or security interests of any nature encumbering such Purchased Asset.
2.Loan Document Status. Each related Mortgage Note, Mortgage, Assignment of Leases (if a separate instrument), guaranty and other agreement executed by or on behalf of the related Mortgagor, guarantor or other obligor in connection with such Purchased Asset is the legal, valid and binding obligation of the related Mortgagor, guarantor or other obligor (subject to any non-recourse provisions contained in any of the foregoing agreements and any applicable state anti-deficiency, one action, or market value limit deficiency legislation), as applicable, and is enforceable in accordance with its terms, except (i) as such enforcement may be limited by (a) bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent transfer, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and (b) general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law) and (ii) those certain provisions in such Purchased Asset Documents (including, without limitation, provisions requiring the payment of default interest, late fees or prepayment/yield maintenance fees, charges and/or premiums) are, or may be, further limited or rendered unenforceable by or under applicable law, but (subject to the limitations set forth in clause (i) above) such limitations or unenforceability will not render such Purchased Asset Documents invalid as a whole or materially interfere with the mortgagee’s realization of the principal benefits and/or security provided thereby (clauses (i) and (ii) collectively, the “Standard Qualifications”).
Except as set forth in the immediately preceding sentences, there is no valid offset, defense, counterclaim or right of rescission available to the related Mortgagor with respect to any of the related Mortgage Notes, Mortgages or other Purchased Asset Documents, including, without limitation, any such valid offset, defense, counterclaim or right based on intentional fraud by Seller in connection with the origination of the Purchased Asset, that would
    Sched. 1-1


deny the mortgagee the principal benefits intended to be provided by the Mortgage Note, Mortgage or other Purchased Asset Documents.
3.Mortgage Provisions. The Purchased Asset Documents for each Purchased Asset contain provisions that render the rights and remedies of the holder thereof adequate for the practical realization against the Mortgaged Property of the principal benefits of the security intended to be provided thereby, including realization by judicial or, if applicable, non-judicial foreclosure subject to the limitations set forth in the Standard Qualifications.
4.Mortgage Status; Waivers and Modifications. Since origination and except by written instruments set forth in the related Mortgage Asset File (a) the material terms of such Mortgage, Mortgage Note, Purchased Asset guaranty, and related Purchased Asset Documents have not been waived, impaired, modified, altered, satisfied, canceled, subordinated or rescinded in any respect that could be reasonably expected to have a material adverse effect on such Mortgage Loan; (b) no related Mortgaged Property or any portion thereof has been released from the lien of the related Mortgage in any manner which materially interferes with the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage or the use or operation of the remaining portion of such Mortgaged Property; and (c) neither the related Mortgagor nor the related guarantor has been released from its material obligations under the Purchased Asset. With respect to each Purchased Asset, except as contained in a written document included in the related Mortgage Asset File, there have been no modifications, amendments or waivers, that could be reasonably expected to have a material adverse effect on such Purchased Asset consented to by Seller on or after the Purchase Date.
5.Hospitality Provisions. The Purchased Asset Documents for each Purchased Asset that is secured by a hospitality property operated pursuant to a franchise or license agreement includes an executed comfort letter or similar agreement signed by the related Mortgagor and franchisor or licensor of such property that, subject to the applicable terms of such franchise or license agreement and comfort letter or similar agreement, is enforceable by the holder of the Purchased Asset against such franchisor or licensor either (A) directly or as an assignee of the originator, or (B) upon Seller’s or its designee’s providing notice of the transfer of the Purchased Asset in accordance with the terms of such executed comfort letter or similar agreement. The Mortgage or related security agreement for each Purchased Asset secured by a hospitality property creates a security interest in the revenues of such Mortgaged Property for which a UCC financing statement has been filed in the appropriate filing office. For the avoidance of doubt, no representation is made as to the perfection of any security interest in revenues to the extent that possession or control of such items or actions other than the filing of Uniform Commercial Code financing statements is required to effect such perfection.
6.Lien; Valid Assignment. Subject to the Standard Qualifications, each Assignment of Mortgage and assignment of Assignment of Leases from Seller constitutes a legal, valid and binding assignment from Seller. Each related Mortgage and Assignment of Leases is freely assignable without the consent of the related Mortgagor. Each related Mortgage is a legal, valid and enforceable first lien on the related Mortgagor’s fee (or if identified on the Transaction Request and Confirmation, leasehold) interest in the Mortgaged Property in the principal amount of such Purchased Asset or allocated loan amount (subject only to Permitted Encumbrances (as defined below) and the exceptions to paragraph (7) set forth in part 1 of this Schedule 1 (each such exception, a “Title Exception”)), except as the enforcement thereof may be limited by the Standard Qualifications. Such Mortgaged Property (subject to and excepting Permitted Encumbrances and the Title Exceptions) as of origination was, and as of the Purchase Date, to the best knowledge of Seller (as defined in the Agreement to which this Schedule 1 is attached), is free and clear of any recorded mechanics’ liens, recorded materialmen’s liens and other recorded encumbrances which are prior to or equal with the lien of the related Mortgage, except those which are bonded over, escrowed for or insured against by a lender’s title insurance policy
    Sched. 1-2


(as described below), and, to Seller’s best knowledge and subject to the rights of tenants (as tenants only) (subject to and excepting Permitted Encumbrances and the Title Exceptions), no rights exist which under law could give rise to any such lien or encumbrance that would be prior to or equal with the lien of the related Mortgage, except those which are bonded over, escrowed for or insured against by a lender’s title insurance policy (as described below). Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no representation is made as to the perfection of any security interest in rents or other personal property to the extent that possession or control of such items or actions other than the filing of UCC financing statements is required in order to effect such perfection.
7.Permitted Liens; Title Insurance. Each Mortgaged Property securing a Purchased Asset is covered by an American Land Title Association loan title insurance policy or a comparable form of loan title insurance policy approved for use in the applicable jurisdiction (or, if such policy is yet to be issued, by a pro forma policy, a preliminary title policy with escrow instructions or a “marked up” commitment, in each case binding on the title insurer) (the “Title Policy”) in the original principal amount of such Purchased Asset (or with respect to a Purchased Asset secured by multiple properties, an amount equal to at least the allocated loan amount with respect to the Title Policy for each such property) after all advances of principal (including any advances held in escrow or reserves), that insures for the benefit of the owner of the Indebtedness secured by the Mortgage, the first priority lien of the Mortgage, which lien is subject only to (a) the lien of current real property taxes, water charges, sewer rents and assessments not yet due and payable; (b) covenants, conditions and restrictions, rights of way, easements and other matters of public record; (c) the exceptions (general and specific) and exclusions set forth in such Title Policy or appearing of record; (d) other matters to which like properties are commonly subject; (e) the rights of tenants (as tenants only) under leases (including subleases) pertaining to the related Mortgaged Property and condominium declarations; and (f) if the related Purchased Asset is cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted with another Purchased Asset (each, a “Crossed Mortgage Loan”), the lien of the Mortgage for another Purchased Asset that is cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted with such Crossed Mortgage Loan, provided that none of which items (a) through (f), individually or in the aggregate, materially and adversely interferes with the value or current use of the Mortgaged Property or the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage or the Mortgagor’s ability to pay its obligations when they become due (collectively, the “Permitted Encumbrances”). Except as contemplated by clause (f) of the preceding sentence, none of the Permitted Encumbrances are mortgage liens that are senior to or coordinate and co-equal with the lien of the related Mortgage. Such Title Policy (or, if it has yet to be issued, the coverage to be provided thereby) is in full force and effect, all premiums thereon have been paid and no claims have been made by Seller thereunder and no claims have been paid thereunder. Neither Seller, nor to the best knowledge of Seller, any other holder of the Purchased Asset, has done, by act or omission, anything that would materially impair the coverage under such Title Policy.
8.Junior Liens. It being understood that B notes secured by the same Mortgage as a Purchased Asset are not subordinate mortgages or junior liens, except for any Crossed Mortgage Loan, there are, as of origination, and to the best knowledge of Seller, as of the Purchase Date, no subordinate mortgages or junior liens securing the payment of money encumbering the related Mortgaged Property (other than Permitted Encumbrances and the Title Exceptions, taxes and assessments, mechanics and materialmen’s liens (which are the subject of the representation in paragraph (5) above), and equipment and other personal property financing. Seller has no knowledge of any mezzanine debt secured directly by interests in the related Mortgagor.
9.Assignments of Leases. There exists as part of the related Mortgage Asset File an Assignment of Leases (either as a separate instrument or incorporated into the related Mortgage). Subject to the Permitted Encumbrances and the Title Exceptions, each related Assignment of Leases creates a valid first-priority collateral assignment of, or a valid first-priority lien or
    Sched. 1-3


security interest in, rents and certain rights under the related lease or leases, subject only to a license granted to the related Mortgagor to exercise certain rights and to perform certain obligations of the lessor under such lease or leases, including the right to operate the related leased property, except as the enforcement thereof may be limited by the Standard Qualifications. The related Mortgage or related Assignment of Leases, subject to applicable law, provides that, upon an event of default under the Purchased Asset, a receiver is permitted to be appointed for the collection of rents or for the related mortgagee to enter into possession to collect the rents or for rents to be paid directly to the mortgagee.
10.UCC Filings. If the related Mortgaged Property is operated as a hospitality property, Seller has filed and/or recorded or caused to be filed and/or recorded (or, if not filed and/or recorded, have been submitted in proper form for filing and/or recording), UCC financing statements in the appropriate public filing and/or recording offices necessary at the time of the origination of the Purchased Asset to perfect a valid security interest in all items of physical personal property reasonably necessary to operate such Mortgaged Property owned by such Mortgagor and located on the related Mortgaged Property (other than any non-material personal property, any personal property subject to a purchase money security interest, a sale and leaseback financing arrangement as permitted under the terms of the related Purchased Asset Documents or any other personal property leases applicable to such personal property), to the extent perfection may be effected pursuant to applicable law by recording or filing, as the case may be. Subject to the Standard Qualifications, each related Mortgage (or equivalent document) creates a valid and enforceable lien and security interest on the items of personalty described above. No representation is made as to the perfection of any security interest in rents or other personal property to the extent that possession or control of such items or actions other than the filing of UCC financing statements are required in order to effect such perfection.
11.Condition of Property. Seller or the originator of the Purchased Asset inspected or caused to be inspected each related Mortgaged Property within six (6) months of origination of the Purchased Asset and within twelve (12) months of the Purchase Date.
An engineering report or property condition assessment was prepared in connection with the origination of each Purchased Asset no more than twelve months prior to the Purchase Date. To Seller’s knowledge, based solely upon due diligence customarily performed in connection with the origination of comparable Purchased Assets, as of the Purchase Date, each related Mortgaged Property was free and clear of any material damage (other than (i) any damage or deficiency that is estimated to cost less than $50,000 to repair, (ii) any deferred maintenance for which escrows were established at origination and (iii) any damage fully covered by insurance) that would affect materially and adversely the use or value of such Mortgaged Property as security for the Purchased Asset.
12.Taxes and Assessments. All real estate taxes, governmental assessments and other similar outstanding governmental charges (including, without limitation, water and sewage charges), or installments thereof, that could be a lien on the related Mortgaged Property that would be of equal or superior priority to the lien of the Mortgage and that prior to the Purchase Date have become delinquent in respect of each related Mortgaged Property have been paid, or an escrow of funds has been established in an amount sufficient to cover such payments and reasonably estimated interest and penalties, if any, thereon. For purposes of this representation and warranty, real estate taxes and governmental assessments and other outstanding governmental charges and installments thereof shall not be considered delinquent until the earlier of (a) the date on which interest and/or penalties would first be payable thereon and (b) the date on which enforcement action is entitled to be taken by the related taxing authority.
13.Condemnation. As of the date of origination and to Seller’s knowledge as of the Purchase Date, there is no proceeding pending, and, to Seller’s knowledge as of the date of
    Sched. 1-4


origination and as of the Purchase Date, there is no proceeding threatened, for the total or partial condemnation of such Mortgaged Property that would have a material adverse effect on the value, use or operation of the Mortgaged Property.
14.Actions Concerning Mortgage Loan. To Seller’s knowledge, based on evaluation of the Title Policy (as defined in paragraph 7), an engineering report or property condition assessment as described in paragraph 11, applicable local law compliance materials as described in paragraph 25, reasonable and customary bankruptcy, civil records, UCC-1, and judgment searches of the borrowers and guarantors, and the ESA (as defined in paragraph 41), on and as of the date of origination and as of the Purchase Date, there was no pending or filed action, suit or proceeding involving any Mortgagor, guarantor, or Mortgagor’s interest in the Mortgaged Property, an adverse outcome of which would reasonably be expected to materially and adversely affect (a) such Mortgagor’s title to the Mortgaged Property, (b) the validity or enforceability of the Mortgage, (c) such Mortgagor’s ability to perform under the related Purchased Asset, (d) such guarantor’s ability to perform under the related guaranty, (e) the principal benefit of the security intended to be provided by the Purchased Asset Documents or (f) the current principal use of the Mortgaged Property.
15.Escrow Deposits. All escrow deposits and payments required to be escrowed with lender pursuant to each Purchased Asset are in the possession, or under the control, of Seller or its servicer, and there are no deficiencies (subject to any applicable grace or cure periods) in connection therewith, and all such escrows and deposits (or the right thereto) that are required to be escrowed with lender under the related Purchased Asset Documents are being conveyed by Seller to Buyer or its servicer.
16.No Holdbacks. The principal amount of the Purchased Asset stated on the Transaction Request and Confirmation has been fully disbursed as of the Purchase Date and there is no requirement for future advances thereunder (except in those cases where the full amount of the Purchased Asset has been disbursed but a portion thereof is being held in escrow or reserve accounts pending the satisfaction of certain conditions relating to leasing, repairs or other matters with respect to the related Mortgaged Property, the Mortgagor or other considerations determined by Seller to merit such holdback).
17.Insurance. Each related Mortgaged Property is, and is required pursuant to the related Mortgage to be, insured by a property insurance policy providing coverage for loss in accordance with coverage found under a “special cause of loss form” or “all risk form” that includes replacement cost valuation issued by an insurer meeting the requirements of the related Purchased Asset Documents and having a claims-paying or financial strength rating of the Insurance Rating Requirements, in an amount (subject to a customary deductible) not less than the lesser of (1) the original principal balance of the Purchased Asset and (2) the full insurable value on a replacement cost basis of the improvements, furniture, furnishings, fixtures and equipment owned by the Mortgagor and included in the Mortgaged Property (with no deduction for physical depreciation), but, in any event, not less than the amount necessary or containing such endorsements as are necessary to avoid the operation of any coinsurance provisions with respect to the related Mortgaged Property.
Each related Mortgaged Property is also covered, and required to be covered pursuant to the related Purchased Asset Documents, by business interruption or rental loss insurance which (subject to a customary deductible) covers a period of not less than 12 months (or with respect to each Purchased Asset on a single asset with a principal balance of $50 million or more, 18 months).
If any material part of the improvements, exclusive of a parking lot, located on a Mortgaged Property is in an area identified in the Federal Register by the Federal Emergency
    Sched. 1-5


Management Agency as having special flood hazards, the related Mortgagor is required to maintain insurance in an amount that is at least equal to the lesser of (1) the outstanding principal balance of the Purchased Asset and (2) the maximum amount of such insurance available under the National Flood Insurance Program.
If the Mortgaged Property is located within 25 miles of the coast of the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic coast of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina or North Carolina, the related Mortgagor is required to maintain coverage for windstorm and/or windstorm related perils and/or “named storms”.
The Mortgaged Property is covered, and required to be covered pursuant to the related Purchased Asset Documents, by a commercial general liability insurance policy issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements including coverage for property damage, contractual damage and personal injury (including bodily injury and death) in amounts as are generally required by Seller for loans originated for securitization, and in any event not less than $1 million per occurrence and $2 million in the aggregate.
An architectural or engineering consultant has performed an analysis of each of the Mortgaged Properties located in seismic zones 3 or 4 in order to evaluate the structural and seismic condition of such property, for the sole purpose of assessing either the scenario expected limit (“SEL”) or the probable maximum loss (“PML”) for the Mortgaged Property in the event of an earthquake. In such instance, the SEL or PML, as applicable, was based on a 475-year return period, an exposure period of 50 years and a 10% probability of exceedance. If the resulting report concluded that the SEL or PML, as applicable, would exceed 20% of the amount of the replacement costs of the improvements, earthquake insurance on such Mortgaged Property was obtained by an insurer rated at least “A:VII” by A.M. Best Company or “A3” (or the equivalent) from Moody’s or “A-” by S&P, in an amount not less than 100% of the SEL or PML, as applicable.
The Purchased Asset Documents require insurance proceeds in respect of a property loss to be applied either (a) to the repair or restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property, with respect to all property losses in excess of 5% of the then outstanding principal amount of the related Purchased Asset, the lender (or a trustee appointed by it) having the right to hold and disburse such proceeds as the repair or restoration progresses, or (b) to the payment of the outstanding principal balance of such Purchased Asset together with any accrued interest thereon.
All premiums on all insurance policies referred to in this section required to be paid as of the Purchase Date have been paid, and such insurance policies name the lender under the Purchased Asset and its successors and assigns as a loss payee under a mortgagee endorsement clause or, in the case of the general liability insurance policy, as named or additional insured. Such insurance policies will inure to the benefit of Buyer. Each related Purchased Asset obligates the related Mortgagor to maintain all such insurance and, at such Mortgagor’s failure to do so, authorizes the lender to maintain such insurance at the Mortgagor’s cost and expense and to charge such Mortgagor for related premiums. All such insurance policies (other than commercial liability policies) require at least ten (10) days’ prior notice to the lender of termination or cancellation arising because of nonpayment of a premium and at least thirty (30) days prior notice to the lender of termination or cancellation (or such lesser period, not less than ten (10) days, as may be required by applicable law) arising for any reason other than non-payment of a premium and no such notice has been received by Seller.
18.Access; Utilities; Separate Tax Lots. Each Mortgaged Property (a) is located on or adjacent to a public road and has direct legal access to such road, or has access via an irrevocable easement or irrevocable right of way permitting ingress and egress to/from a public
    Sched. 1-6


road, (b) is served by or has uninhibited access rights to public or private water and sewer (or well and septic) and all required utilities, all of which are appropriate for the current use of the Mortgaged Property, and (c) constitutes one or more separate tax parcels which do not include any property which is not part of the Mortgaged Property or is subject to an endorsement under the related Title Policy insuring the Mortgaged Property, or in certain cases, an application has been, or will be, made to the applicable governing authority for creation of separate tax lots, in which case the Purchased Asset requires the Mortgagor to escrow an amount sufficient to pay taxes for the existing tax parcel of which the Mortgaged Property is a part until the separate tax lots are created or the non-recourse carveout guarantor under the Purchased Asset has indemnified the mortgagee for any loss suffered in connection therewith.
19.No Encroachments. To Seller’s knowledge based solely on surveys obtained in connection with origination (which may have been a previously existing “as built” survey) and the lender’s Title Policy (or, if such policy is not yet issued, a pro forma title policy, a preliminary title policy with escrow instructions or a “marked up” commitment) obtained in connection with the origination of each Purchased Asset, all material improvements that were included for the purpose of determining the Appraised Value of the related Mortgaged Property at the time of the origination of such Purchased Asset are within the boundaries of the related Mortgaged Property, except encroachments that do not materially and adversely affect the value or current use of such Mortgaged Property or for which insurance or endorsements were obtained under the Title Policy. No improvements on adjoining parcels encroach onto the related Mortgaged Property except for encroachments that do not materially and adversely affect the value or current use of such Mortgaged Property or for which insurance or endorsements were obtained under the Title Policy. No material improvements encroach upon any easements except for encroachments the removal of which would not materially and adversely affect the value or current use of such Mortgaged Property or for which insurance or endorsements have been obtained under the Title Policy.
20.No Contingent Interest or Equity Participation. No Purchased Asset has a shared appreciation feature, any other contingent interest feature or a negative amortization feature (except that an ARD Loan (as defined below) may provide for the accrual of the portion of interest in excess of the rate in effect prior to the Anticipated Repayment Date (as defined below)) or an equity participation by Seller.
21.[reserved].
22.Compliance with Usury Laws. The interest rate (exclusive of any default interest, late charges, yield maintenance charges, exit fees, or prepayment premiums) of such Purchased Asset complied as of the date of origination with, or was exempt from, applicable state or federal laws, regulations and other requirements pertaining to usury.
23.Authorized to do Business. To the extent required under applicable law, as of the Purchase Date or as of the date that such entity held the Mortgage Note, each holder of the Mortgage Note was authorized to transact and do business in the jurisdiction in which each related Mortgaged Property is located, or the failure to be so authorized does not materially and adversely affect the enforceability of such Purchased Asset by the trust.
24.Trustee under Deed of Trust. With respect to each Mortgage which is a deed of trust, as of the date of origination and, to Seller’s knowledge, as of the Purchase Date, a trustee, duly qualified under applicable law to serve as such, currently so serves and is named in the deed of trust or has been substituted in accordance with the Mortgage and applicable law or may be substituted in accordance with the Mortgage and applicable law by the related mortgagee.
    Sched. 1-7


25.Local Law Compliance. To Seller’s knowledge, based upon any of a letter from any Governmental Authorities, a legal opinion, an architect’s letter, a zoning consultant’s report, an endorsement to the related Title Policy, or other affirmative investigation of local law compliance consistent with the investigation conducted by Seller for similar commercial, multifamily and manufactured housing community mortgage loans intended for securitization, with respect to the improvements located on or forming part of each Mortgaged Property securing a Purchased Asset as of the date of origination of such Purchased Asset and as of the Purchase Date, there are no material violations of applicable zoning ordinances, building codes and land laws (collectively “Zoning Regulations”) other than those which (i) constitute a legal non-conforming use or structure, as to which the Mortgaged Property may be restored or repaired to the full extent necessary to maintain the use of the structure immediately prior to a casualty or the inability to restore or repair to the full extent necessary to maintain the use or structure immediately prior to the casualty would not materially and adversely affect the use or operation of the Mortgaged Property, (ii) are insured by the Title Policy or other insurance policy, (iii) are insured by law and ordinance insurance coverage in amounts customarily required by Seller for loans originated for securitization that provides coverage for additional costs to rebuild and/or repair the property to current Zoning Regulations or (iv) would not have a material adverse effect on the Purchased Asset. The terms of the Purchased Asset Documents require the Mortgagor to comply in all material respects with all applicable governmental regulations, zoning and building laws.
26.Licenses and Permits. Each Mortgagor covenants in the Purchased Asset Documents that it shall keep all material licenses, permits and applicable governmental authorizations necessary for its operation of the Mortgaged Property in full force and effect, and to Seller’s knowledge based upon a letter from any government authorities or other affirmative investigation of local law compliance consistent with the investigation conducted by Seller for similar commercial, multifamily and manufactured housing community mortgage loans intended for securitization, all such material licenses, permits and applicable governmental authorizations are in effect. The Purchased Asset requires the related Mortgagor to be qualified to do business in the jurisdiction in which the related Mortgaged Property is located.
27.Recourse Obligations. The Purchased Asset Documents for each Purchased Asset provide that such Purchased Asset is non-recourse to the related parties thereto except that (a) the related Mortgagor and at least one individual or entity shall be fully liable for actual losses, liabilities, costs and damages arising from certain acts of the related Mortgagor and/or its principals specified in the related Purchased Asset Documents, which acts generally include the following: (i) acts of fraud or intentional material misrepresentation, (ii) misappropriation of rents (following an Event of Default), insurance proceeds or condemnation awards, (iii) intentional material physical waste of the Mortgaged Property, and (iv) any breach of the environmental covenants contained in the related Purchased Asset Documents, and (b) the Purchased Asset shall become full recourse to the related Mortgagor and at least one individual or entity, if the related Mortgagor files a voluntary petition under federal or state bankruptcy or Insolvency Law.
28.Mortgage Releases. The terms of the related Mortgage or related Purchased Asset Documents do not provide for release of any material portion of the Mortgaged Property from the lien of the Mortgage except (a) a partial release, accompanied by principal repayment, or a partial Defeasance, (as defined in paragraph (33)) of not less than a specified percentage at least equal to the lesser of (i) 110% of the related allocated loan amount of such portion of the Mortgaged Property and (ii) the outstanding principal balance of the Purchased Asset, (b) upon payment in full of such Purchased Asset, (c) upon a Defeasance (as defined in paragraph (33)), (d) releases of out-parcels that are unimproved or other portions of the Mortgaged Property which will not have a material adverse effect on the underwritten value of the Mortgaged Property and which were not afforded any material value in the appraisal obtained at the
    Sched. 1-8


origination of the Purchased Asset and are not necessary for physical access to the Mortgaged Property or compliance with zoning requirements, or (e) as required pursuant to an order of condemnation or taking by a State or any political subdivision or authority thereof.
29.Financial Reporting and Rent Rolls. The Purchased Asset Documents for each Purchased Asset require the Mortgagor to provide the owner or holder of the Mortgage with quarterly (other than for single-tenant properties) and annual operating statements, and quarterly or monthly (other than for single-tenant properties) rent rolls for properties that have leases contributing more than 5% of the in-place base rent and annual financial statements, which annual financial statements with respect to each Purchased Asset with more than one borrower are in the form of an annual combined balance sheet of the borrower entities (and no other entities), together with the related combined statements of operations, members’ capital and cash flows, including a combining balance sheet and statement of income for the Mortgaged Properties on a combined basis.
30.Acts of Terrorism Exclusion. With respect to each Purchased Asset with a principal balance on the related Purchase Date that exceeds $20 million, the related special-form all-risk insurance policy and business interruption policy (issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements) do not specifically exclude Acts of Terrorism, as defined in the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, as amended by the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2007 and further amended by the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2015 (collectively referred to as “TRIA”), from coverage, or if such coverage is excluded, it is covered by a separate terrorism insurance policy. With respect to each other Purchased Asset, the related special-form all-risk insurance policy and business interruption policy (issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements) did not, as of the date of origination of the Purchased Asset, and, to Seller’s knowledge, do not, as of the Purchase Date, specifically exclude Acts of Terrorism, as defined in TRIA, from coverage, or if such coverage is excluded, it is covered by a separate terrorism insurance policy. With respect to each Purchased Asset, the related Purchased Asset Documents generally only require that the related borrower take commercially reasonable efforts to obtain insurance against damage resulting from Acts of Terrorism and other acts of sabotage unless lack of such insurance will result in a downgrade of the ratings of the related Purchased Asset. With respect to each Purchased Asset, the related Purchased Asset Documents do not expressly waive or prohibit the mortgagee from requiring coverage for Acts of Terrorism, as defined in TRIA, or damages related thereto except to the extent that any right to require such coverage may be limited by commercial availability on commercially reasonable terms; provided, however, that if TRIA or a similar or subsequent statute is not in effect, then, provided that terrorism insurance is commercially available, the Mortgagor under each Purchased Asset is required to carry terrorism insurance, but in such event the Mortgagor shall not be required to spend on terrorism insurance coverage more than two times the amount of the insurance premium that is payable in respect of the property and business interruption/rental loss insurance required under the related Purchased Asset Documents (without giving effect to the cost of terrorism and earthquake components of such casualty and business interruption/rental loss insurance) at such time, and if the cost of terrorism insurance exceeds such amount, the Mortgagor is required to purchase the maximum amount of terrorism insurance available with funds equal to such amount.
31.Due on Sale or Encumbrance. Subject to specific exceptions set forth below, each Purchased Asset contains a “due on sale” or other such provision for the acceleration of the payment of the unpaid principal balance of such Purchased Asset if, without the consent of the holder of the Mortgage (which consent, in some cases, may not be unreasonably withheld) and/or complying with the requirements of the related Purchased Asset Documents (which provide for transfers without the consent of the lender which are customarily acceptable to Seller lending on the security of property comparable to the related Mortgaged Property, including, without limitation, transfers of worn-out or obsolete furnishings, fixtures, or equipment promptly
    Sched. 1-9


replaced with property of equivalent value and functionality and transfers by leases entered into in accordance with the Purchased Asset Documents), (a) the related Mortgaged Property, or any equity interest of greater than 50% in the related Mortgagor, is directly or indirectly pledged, transferred or sold, other than as related to (i) family and estate planning transfers or transfers upon death or legal incapacity, (ii) transfers to certain affiliates as defined in the related Purchased Asset Documents, (iii) transfers that do not result in a Change in Control of the related borrower or transfers of passive interests so long as the guarantor retains Control, (iv) transfers to another holder of direct or indirect equity in the Mortgagor, a specific Person designated in the related Purchased Asset Documents or a Person satisfying specific criteria identified in the related Purchased Asset Documents, such as a qualified equityholder, (v) transfers of stock or similar equity units in publicly traded companies or (vi) a substitution or release of collateral within the parameters of paragraphs (28) and (33) herein by reason of any mezzanine debt that existed at the origination of the related Purchased Asset (and which is disclosed in writing to Buyer and approved by Buyer in its sole discretion prior to the Purchase Date of such Purchased Asset), or (b) the related Mortgaged Property is encumbered with a subordinate lien or security interest against the related Mortgaged Property, other than (i) any subordinate debt that existed at origination and is permitted under the related Purchased Asset Documents, (ii) purchase money security interests, (iii) any Crossed Mortgage Loan, or (iv) Permitted Encumbrances. For purposes of the foregoing representation, “Control” means the power to direct the management and policies of an entity, directly or indirectly, whether through the ownership of voting securities or other beneficial interests, by contract or otherwise.
32.Single-Purpose Entity. Each Purchased Asset requires the Mortgagor to be a Single-Purpose Entity for at least as long as the Purchased Asset is outstanding. Both the Purchased Asset Documents and the organizational documents of the Mortgagor with respect to each Purchased Asset with principal balance on the related Purchase Date that exceeds $5 million provide that the Mortgagor is a Single-Purpose Entity, and each Purchased Asset with a principal balance on the related Purchase Date that exceeds $20 million has a counsel’s opinion regarding non-consolidation of the Mortgagor. For this purpose, a “Single-Purpose Entity” shall mean an entity, other than an individual, whose organizational documents (or if the Purchased Asset has a principal balance on the related Purchase Date that is $5 million or less, its organizational documents or the related Purchased Asset Documents) provide substantially to the effect that it was formed or organized solely for the purpose of owning and operating one or more of the Mortgaged Properties securing the Purchased Assets and prohibit it from engaging in any business unrelated to such Mortgaged Property or Properties, and whose organizational documents further provide, or which entity represented in the related Purchased Asset Documents, substantially to the effect that it does not have any assets other than those related to its interest in and operation of such Mortgaged Property or Properties, or any Indebtedness other than as permitted by the related Mortgage(s) or the other related Purchased Asset Documents, that it has its own books and records and accounts separate and apart from those of any other person (other than a Mortgagor for a Crossed Mortgage Loan), and that it holds itself out as a legal entity, separate and apart from any other person or entity.
33.Defeasance. With respect to any Purchased Asset that, pursuant to the Purchased Asset Documents, can be defeased (a “Defeasance”), (i) the Purchased Asset Documents provide for Defeasance as a unilateral right of the Mortgagor, subject to satisfaction of conditions specified in the Purchased Asset Documents; (ii) the Purchased Asset cannot be defeased within two years after the closing date of the related securitization of such Purchased Asset; (iii) the Mortgagor is permitted to pledge only United States “government securities” within the meaning of Section 1.860G-2(a)(8)(ii) of the Treasury Regulations, the revenues from which will, in the case of a full Defeasance, be sufficient to make all scheduled payments under the Purchased Asset when due, including the entire remaining principal balance on the maturity date (or on or after the first date on which payment may be made without payment of a yield maintenance charge or prepayment premium) or, if the Purchased Asset is an ARD Loan, the entire principal
    Sched. 1-10


balance outstanding on the Anticipated Repayment Date (or on or after the first date on which payment may be made without payment of a yield maintenance charge or prepayment premium), and if the Purchased Asset permits partial releases of real property in connection with partial Defeasance, the revenues from the collateral will be sufficient to pay all such scheduled payments calculated on a principal amount equal to a specified percentage at least equal to the lesser of (a) 110% of the allocated loan amount for the real property to be released and (b) the outstanding principal balance of the Purchased Asset; (iv) the Mortgagor is required to provide a certification from an independent certified public accountant that the collateral is sufficient to make all scheduled payments under the Mortgage Note as set forth in clause (iii) above; (v) if the Mortgagor would continue to own assets in addition to the Defeasance collateral, the portion of the Purchased Asset secured by Defeasance collateral is required to be assumed (or the mortgagee may require such assumption) by a Single-Purpose Entity; (vi) the Mortgagor is required to provide an opinion of counsel that the mortgagee has a perfected security interest in such collateral prior to any other claim or interest; and (vii) the Mortgagor is required to pay all rating agency fees associated with defeasance (if rating confirmation is a specific condition precedent thereto) and all other reasonable expenses associated with Defeasance, including, but not limited to, accountant’s fees and opinions of counsel.
34.Ground Leases. For purposes of this Agreement, a “Ground Lease” shall mean a lease creating a leasehold estate in real property where the fee owner as the ground lessor or sub ground lessor conveys for a term or terms of years its entire interest in the land and buildings and other improvements, if any, comprising the premises demised under such lease to the ground lessee (who may, in certain circumstances, own the building and improvements on the land), subject to the reversionary interest of the ground lessor as fee owner and does not include industrial development agency (IDA) or similar leases for purposes of conferring a tax abatement or other benefit.
With respect to any Purchased Asset where the Purchased Asset is secured by a leasehold estate under a Ground Lease in whole or in part, and the related Mortgage does not also encumber the related lessor’s fee interest in such Mortgaged Property, based upon the terms of the Ground Lease and any estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor in favor of Seller, its successors and assigns, Seller represents and warrants that:
(a)The Ground Lease or a memorandum regarding such Ground Lease has been duly recorded or submitted for recordation in a form that is acceptable for recording in the applicable jurisdiction. The Ground Lease or an estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor permits the interest of the lessee to be encumbered by the related Mortgage and does not restrict the use of the related Mortgaged Property by such lessee, its successors or assigns in a manner that would materially adversely affect the security provided by the related Mortgage;
(b)The lessor under such Ground Lease has agreed in a writing included in the related Mortgage Asset File (or in such Ground Lease) that the Ground Lease may not be amended or modified, or canceled or terminated by agreement of lessor and lessee, without the prior written consent of the lender (except termination or cancellation if (i) notice of a default under the Ground Lease is provided to lender and (ii) such default is curable by lender as provided in the Ground Lease but remains uncured beyond the applicable cure period), and no such consent has been granted by Seller since the origination of the Purchased Asset except as reflected in any written instruments which are included in the related Mortgage Asset File;
(c)The Ground Lease has an original term (or an original term plus one or more optional renewal terms, which, under all circumstances, may be exercised, and will be enforceable, by either borrower or the mortgagee) that extends not less than 20
    Sched. 1-11


years beyond the stated maturity of the related Purchased Asset, or 10 years past the stated maturity if such Purchased Asset fully amortizes by the stated maturity (or with respect to a Purchased Asset that accrues on an actual 360 basis, substantially amortizes);
(d)The Ground Lease either (i) is not subject to any liens or encumbrances superior to, or of equal priority with, the Mortgage, except for the related fee interest of the ground lessor and the Permitted Encumbrances, or (ii)  is subject to a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement to which the mortgagee on the lessor’s fee interest in the Mortgaged Property is subject;
(e)The Ground Lease does not place commercially unreasonable restrictions on the identity of the Mortgagee and the Ground Lease is assignable to the holder of the Purchased Asset and its successors and assigns without the consent of the lessor thereunder, and in the event it is so assigned, it is further assignable by the holder of the Purchased Asset and its successors and assigns without the consent of the lessor;
(f)Seller has not received any written notice of material default under or notice of termination of such Ground Lease. To Seller’s knowledge, there is no material default under such Ground Lease and no condition that, but for the passage of time or giving of notice, would result in a material default under the terms of such Ground Lease and to the best knowledge of Seller, such Ground Lease is in full force and effect as of the Purchase Date;
(g)The Ground Lease or ancillary agreement between the lessor and the lessee requires the lessor to give to the lender written notice of any default, and provides that no notice of default or termination is effective against the lender unless such notice is given to the lender;
(h)A lender is permitted a reasonable opportunity (including, where necessary, sufficient time to gain possession of the interest of the lessee under the Ground Lease through legal proceedings) to cure any default under the Ground Lease which is curable after the lender’s receipt of notice of any default before the lessor may terminate the Ground Lease;
(i)The Ground Lease does not impose any restrictions on subletting that would be viewed as commercially unreasonable by Seller in connection with loans originated for securitization;
(j)Under the terms of the Ground Lease, an estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor and the related Mortgage (taken together), any related insurance proceeds or the portion of the condemnation award allocable to the ground lessee’s interest (other than (i) de minimis amounts for minor casualties or (ii) in respect of a total or substantially total loss or taking as addressed in clause (k) below) will be applied either to the repair or to restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property with (so long as such proceeds are in excess of the threshold amount specified in the related Mortgage Loan Documents) the lender or a trustee appointed by it having the right to hold and disburse such proceeds as repair or restoration progresses, or to the payment of the outstanding principal balance of the Purchased Asset, together with any accrued interest;
(k)In the case of a total or substantially total taking or loss, under the terms of the Ground Lease, an estoppel or other agreement and the related Mortgage (taken together), any related insurance proceeds, or portion of the condemnation award
    Sched. 1-12


allocable to ground lessee’s interest in respect of a total or substantially total loss or taking of the related Mortgaged Property to the extent not applied to restoration, will be applied first to the payment of the outstanding principal balance of the Purchased Asset, together with any accrued interest; and
(l)Provided that the lender cures any defaults which are susceptible to being cured, the ground lessor has agreed to enter into a new lease with lender upon termination of the Ground Lease for any reason, including rejection of the Ground Lease in a bankruptcy proceeding.
35.Servicing. The servicing and collection practices used by Seller with respect to the Purchased Asset have been, in all material respects, legal and have met customary industry standards for servicing of similar commercial loans.
36.Origination and Underwriting. The origination practices of Seller (or the related originator if Seller was not the originator) with respect to each Purchased Asset have been, in all material respects, legal and as of the date of its origination, such Purchased Asset and the origination thereof complied in all material respects with, or was exempt from, all requirements of federal, state or local law relating to the origination of such Purchased Asset; provided that such representation and warranty does not address or otherwise cover any matters with respect to federal, state or local law otherwise covered in this Schedule 1.
37.No Material Default; Payment Record. No Purchased Asset has been more than thirty (30) days delinquent, without giving effect to any grace or cure period, in making required payments since origination, and as of the date hereof, no Purchased Asset is more than thirty (30) days delinquent (beyond any applicable grace or cure period) in making required payments as of the Purchase Date. To the best knowledge of Seller, there is (a) no material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration existing under the related Purchased Asset, or (b) no event (other than payments due but not yet delinquent) which, with the passage of time or with notice and the expiration of any grace or cure period, would constitute a material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration, which default, breach, violation or event of acceleration, in the case of either clause (a) or clause (b), materially and adversely affects the value of the Purchased Asset or the value, use or operation of the related Mortgaged Property, provided, however, that this representation and warranty does not cover any default, breach, violation or event of acceleration that specifically pertains to or arises out of an exception scheduled to any other representation and warranty made by Seller in this Schedule 1. No Person other than the holder of such Purchased Asset may declare any event of default under the Purchased Asset or accelerate any Indebtedness under the Mortgage Loan Documents.
38.Bankruptcy. As of the date of origination of the related Purchased Asset and to Seller’s knowledge as of the Purchase Date, no Mortgagor, guarantor or tenant occupying a single-tenant property is a debtor in state or federal bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding.
39.Organization of Mortgagor. With respect to each Purchased Asset, in reliance on certified copies of the organizational documents of the Mortgagor delivered by the Mortgagor in connection with the origination of such Purchased Asset, the Mortgagor is an entity organized under the laws of a state of the United States of America, the District of Columbia or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Except with respect to any Crossed Mortgage Loan, no Purchased Asset has a Mortgagor that is an Affiliate of another Mortgagor under another Purchased Asset. (An “Affiliate” for purposes of this paragraph (40) means, a Mortgagor that is under direct or indirect common ownership and control with another Mortgagor.)
    Sched. 1-13


40.Environmental Conditions. A Phase I environmental site assessment (or update of a previous Phase I and or Phase II site assessment) and, with respect to certain Purchased Assets, a Phase II environmental site assessment (collectively, an “ESA”) meeting ASTM requirements conducted by a reputable environmental consultant in connection with such Purchased Asset within 12 months prior to its origination date (or an update of a previous ESA was prepared), and such ESA either (i) did not identify the existence of recognized Environmental Conditions at the related Mortgaged Property or the need for further investigation with respect to any Environmental Condition that was identified, or (ii) if the existence of an Environmental Condition or need for further investigation was indicated in any such ESA, then at least one of the following statements is true: (A) an amount reasonably estimated by a reputable environmental consultant to be sufficient to cover the estimated cost to cure any material noncompliance with applicable Environmental Laws or the Environmental Condition has been escrowed by the related Mortgagor and is held or controlled by the related lender; (B) if the only Environmental Condition relates to the presence of asbestos-containing materials, radon in indoor air, lead based paint or lead in drinking water, and the only recommended action in the ESA is the institution of such a plan, an operations or maintenance plan has been required to be instituted by the related Mortgagor that can reasonably be expected to mitigate the identified risk; (C) the Environmental Condition identified in the related environmental report was remediated or abated in all material respects prior to the date hereof, and, if and as appropriate, a no further action or closure letter was obtained from the applicable governmental regulatory authority (or the Environmental Condition affecting the related Mortgaged Property was otherwise listed by such Governmental Authority as “closed” or a reputable environmental consultant has concluded that no further action is required); (D) a secured creditor environmental policy or a pollution legal liability insurance policy that covers liability for the Environmental Condition was obtained from an insurer rated no less than A- (or the equivalent) by Moody’s, S&P and/or Fitch, Inc.; (E) a party not related to the Mortgagor was identified as the responsible party for such Environmental Condition and such responsible party has financial resources reasonably estimated to be adequate to address the situation; or (F) a party related to the Mortgagor having financial resources reasonably estimated to be adequate to address the situation is required to take action. To Seller’s knowledge, except as set forth in the ESA, there is no Environmental Condition (as such term is defined in ASTM E1527-05 or its successor) at the related Mortgaged Property.
41.Appraisal. The Mortgage Asset File contains an appraisal of the related Mortgaged Property with an appraisal date within six (6) months of the Purchased Asset origination date, and within six (6) months of the Purchase Date. The appraisal is signed by an appraiser who is either a Member of the Appraisal Institute and/or has been licensed and certified to prepare appraisals in the state where the Mortgaged Property is located. Each appraiser has represented in such appraisal or in a supplemental letter that the appraisal satisfies the requirements of the “Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice” as adopted by the Appraisal Standards Board of the Appraisal Foundation and has certified that such appraiser had no interest, direct or indirect, in the Mortgaged Property or the Mortgagor or in any loan made on the security thereof, and its compensation is not affected by the approval or disapproval of the Purchased Asset.
42.Transaction Request and Confirmation. The information pertaining to each Purchased Asset which is set forth in the Transaction Request and Confirmation is true and correct in all material respects as of the Purchase Date and contains all information required by the Agreement to be contained therein.
43.Cross-Collateralization. No Purchased Asset is cross-collateralized or cross-defaulted with any other mortgage loan that is not a Purchased Asset.
    Sched. 1-14


44.Advance of Funds by Seller. After origination, no advance of funds has been made by Seller to the related Mortgagor other than in accordance with the Mortgage Loan Documents, and, to Seller’s knowledge, no funds have been received from any person other than the related Mortgagor or an Affiliate for, or on account of, payments due on the Purchased Asset (other than as contemplated by the Mortgage Loan Documents, such as, by way of example and not in limitation of the foregoing, amounts paid by the tenant(s) into a lender-controlled lockbox if required or contemplated under the related lease or Purchased Asset Documents). Neither Seller nor any Affiliate thereof has any obligation to make any capital contribution to any Mortgagor under a Purchased Asset, other than contributions made on or prior to the date hereof.
45.Compliance with Anti-Money Laundering Laws. Seller has complied in all material respects with all applicable Anti-Money Laundering Laws and regulations, including without limitation the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 with respect to the origination of the Purchased Asset, the failure to comply with which would have a material adverse effect on the Purchased Asset.
For purposes of this Schedule 1, the following terms shall have the following meanings:
Anticipated Repayment Date”: With respect to any Purchased Asset that is indicated on the Transaction Request and Confirmation as having a Revised Rate, the date upon which such Purchased Asset commences accruing interest at such Revised Rate.
ARD Loan”: Any Purchased Asset the terms of which provide that if, after an Anticipated Repayment Date, the Mortgagor has not prepaid such Purchased Asset in full, any principal outstanding on that date will accrue interest at the Revised Rate rather than the initial rate specified in the related Purchased Asset Documents.
Revised Rate”: With respect to those Purchased Assets on the Transaction Request and Confirmation indicated as having a revised rate, the increased interest rate after the Anticipated Repayment Date (in the absence of a default) for each applicable Purchased Asset, as calculated and as set forth in the related Purchased Asset Documents.

    Sched. 1-15

3.There exists no material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration (and no event that, with the passage of time or the giving of notice, or both, would constitute any of the foregoing) under the documents evidencing or securing the Purchased Asset, in any such case to the extent the same materially and adversely affects the value of the Purchased Asset and the related underlying real property.
4.Except with respect to the enforceability of any provisions requiring the payment of default interest, late fees, additional interest, prepayment premiums or yield maintenance charges, neither the Purchased Asset nor any of the related Purchased Asset Documents is subject to any right of rescission, set-off, abatement, diminution, valid counterclaim or defense, including the defense of usury, nor will the operation of any of the terms of any such Purchased Asset Documents, or the exercise (in compliance with procedures permitted under applicable law) of any right thereunder, render any Purchased Asset Documents subject to any right of rescission, set-off, abatement, diminution, valid counterclaim or defense, including the defense of usury (subject to anti-deficiency or one form of action laws and to bankruptcy, receivership, conservatorship, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditor’s rights generally and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law)), and no such right of rescission, set-off, abatement, diminution, valid counterclaim or defense has been asserted with respect thereto.
5.The Purchased Asset Documents have been duly and properly executed by the originator of the Purchased Asset, and each is the legal, valid and binding obligation of the parties thereto, enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, moratorium or other laws relating to or affecting the rights of creditors generally and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).

8.All representations and warranties in the Purchased Asset Documents and in the underlying documents for the Commercial Mortgage Loan secured by a first lien on a multifamily or commercial property to which such Purchased Asset relates are true and correct in all material respects, and there has been no adverse change with respect to the Purchased Asset, the related underlying Mortgage Loan, the related Mortgagor in respect thereof or the underlying Mortgaged Property that would render any such representation or warranty not true or correct in any material respect as of the Purchase Date.
9.The servicing and collection practices used by Seller for the Purchased Asset have complied with applicable law in all material respects and are consistent with those employed by prudent servicers of comparable Purchased Assets.

Attention: ___________
Re:    Uncommitted Master Repurchase Agreement, dated as of November 8, 2021 (as such agreement may be amended, modified and/or restated, the “Repurchase Agreement”), by and between Terra Mortgage Capital III, LLC, (“Seller”), and UBS AG, by and through its branch office at 1285 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York (“Buyer”).
Ladies and Gentlemen:
[SERVICER] (“Loan Servicer”) is servicing certain mortgage loans and/or participation interests for Seller pursuant to that certain [Servicing Agreement], dated as of [__________], by and between Loan Servicer and [_________] (“Original Owner”) (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Servicing Agreement”). A copy of the Servicing Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit A. Pursuant to the Repurchase Agreement, Loan Servicer is hereby notified that Seller has sold to Buyer and may in the future continue to sell to Buyer certain mortgage loans and/or participation interests (as more fully defined in the Repurchase Agreement, the “Purchased Assets”), and such Purchased Assets are subject to a security interest in favor of Buyer. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings assigned thereto in the Repurchase Agreement.
Section 1.    Acts as Loan Servicer.
(a)    Loan Servicer is hereby further notified pursuant to this instruction letter that Seller has sold, and expects from time to time to sell Purchased Assets to Buyer on a “servicing released” basis pursuant to the Repurchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit B, and that the Purchased Assets, together with all Servicing Rights with respect thereto, are sold, transferred and assigned to Buyer pursuant to the Repurchase Agreement and, in connection therewith, the Purchased Assets and all Servicing Rights are also being pledged to Buyer. All of the rights (but none of the obligations, which shall remain solely with Seller) of Seller and each of its Affiliates under the Servicing Agreement with respect to the Purchased Assets, including but not limited to the related Servicing Rights, are assigned to Buyer pursuant to the Repurchase Agreement at the time of sale, and Loan Servicer acknowledges and consents to such assignment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Buyer has agreed to retain Loan Servicer, for a term of 30-days, as may be extended in writing by Buyer for one or more additional 30-day periods, which extension notice may be included by Buyer in the monthly remittance instructions delivered by Buyer to Loan Servicer under the Repurchase Agreement, to service the Purchased Assets at Seller’s sole cost and expense for the benefit of Buyer pursuant to the Servicing Agreement, and subject to the terms of this instruction letter. Where there is a conflict between the Servicing Agreement and this instruction letter, as with respect to the servicing of, and Servicing Rights in connection with, the Purchased Assets, this instruction letter shall govern. Each party to the Servicing Agreement agrees that Buyer is and shall be a direct express third-party beneficiary of the Servicing Agreement with all of the rights of Seller with respect to the Purchased Assets, but none of the obligations of Seller. Loan Servicer acknowledges and agrees that Buyer shall have direct recourse against Loan Servicer (i) with respect to the rights of Buyer
USActive 54634370.26    Exh. J-1


as specified in this instruction letter in connection with (A) Loan Servicer’s willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties under the Servicing Agreement or this instruction letter, (b) a breach of Loan Servicer’s representations and warranties as set forth in the Servicing Agreement, or (c) by reason of reckless disregard of Loan Servicer’s obligations or duties under the Servicing Agreement or this instruction letter, and (ii) the right, subject to all terms and conditions of the Repurchase Agreement, to exercise all rights of Seller as an “Owner” under the Servicing Agreement with respect to the Purchased Assets. Each party to the Servicing Agreement acknowledges and agrees that (I) it retains no economic rights to the servicing of the Purchased Assets, (II) Buyer has granted to Seller a revocable license to cause Loan Servicer to service the Purchased Assets pursuant to the Servicing Agreement, as supplemented and modified by this instruction letter, for the benefit of Buyer only, (III) neither Loan Servicer nor any other Person other than Buyer owns or has any rights with respect to the Servicing Rights of the Purchased Assets, and (IV) in no event shall Loan Servicer or any other Person have any rights to any Income generated by or otherwise received in connection with any of the Purchased Assets to compensate Loan Servicer for any fees, costs or expenses (however defined), including but not limited to reimbursement of any servicing advances in connection with any of the Purchased Assets or transactions contemplated by or services otherwise rendered pursuant to the Servicing Agreement with respect to the Purchased Assets.
(b)    Loan Servicer agrees to service the Purchased Assets pursuant to the Servicing Agreement and this instruction letter for the benefit of Buyer, and, except as otherwise expressly provided herein and subject to the terms and conditions of the Repurchase Agreement, Buyer shall have all of the rights, but none of the duties or obligations (including, without limitation, any obligations regarding the payment of any fees, indemnification, costs, reimbursement or expenses) of Seller [or any Original Owner] under the Servicing Agreement. It is expressly acknowledged and agreed that certain terms relating to the servicing of the Purchased Assets and the rights of Buyer and its Affiliates are contained in the Repurchase Agreement, and it is further acknowledged and agreed that these rights shall be incorporated by reference herein and in the Servicing Agreement, as amended hereby. Loan Servicer has been provided with, and has reviewed a copy of the Repurchase Agreement, in particular, Section 16 thereof, and agrees to take no action that would violate or be otherwise inconsistent with the requirements set forth in the Repurchase Agreement. Loan Servicer shall not make any servicing advances with respect to any of the Purchased Assets without Buyer’s prior written consent.
(c)    Loan Servicer agrees to notify Buyer and Seller in writing (a) of any default (or any payment default that is reasonably foreseeable in accordance with the Servicing Standard (as defined in the Servicing Agreement) with respect to any Purchased Asset (or any underlying Mortgage Loan), (b) if Loan Servicer becomes aware that a loan file for any Purchased Asset is incomplete in any way that could be reasonably likely to adversely affect Loan Servicer’s ability to service the Purchased Assets, (c) if Loan Servicer becomes aware that property insurance is not maintained on any Mortgaged Property securing a Purchased Asset (or any underlying Mortgage Loan) and/or (d) of any other acts, omissions or events with respect to which notice is required to be given to any party pursuant to the Servicing Agreement.
(d)    Loan Servicer further agrees (a) to provide Buyer with copies of any notice, report, advice or summary relating to the Purchased Assets prepared or provided by Loan Servicer pursuant to the Servicing Agreement, or prepared by any other Person as and when received by Loan Servicer, and (b) upon the request of Buyer or its designee, to promptly provide Buyer or its designee a [Servicing Tape]1 for any month (or any portion thereof) as requested by Buyer or its designee.

Section 3.    Material Modifications. Loan Servicer agrees to notify Buyer in writing whenever a borrower under a Purchased Asset requests any review, approval or action described in Sections 12(w) of the Repurchase Agreement (any such review, approval or action, a “Material Modification”), and Loan Servicer further agrees that Loan Servicer will not make any Material Modification or take any action requiring Loan Servicer to make a Material Modification, without Buyer’s prior written consent, as determined in its sole discretion.
Section 4.    Collections. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Servicing Agreement, Loan Servicer hereby agrees that it shall (i) maintain, for the duration of the Repurchase Agreement, a schedule identifying the loan and participation interests that are subject to this notice, maintain a segregated account (the “Servicer Account”), which shall not be commingled with any other moneys other than Income relating to the Purchased Assets, (ii) give Buyer written notice of any change of the location or account number of the Servicer Account promptly after the date of such change, (iii) deposit any and all Income received by Loan Servicer relating to the Purchased Assets, other than payments received with respect to a Purchased Asset that are designated for payment of escrows pursuant to the express terms of the Purchased Asset Documents, into the Servicer Account and (iv) within two (2) Business Days of receipt thereof by Loan Servicer, remit all Income (other than payments received with respect to a Purchased Asset that are designated for payment of escrows pursuant to the express terms of the Purchased Asset Documents) related in any way to any of the Purchased Assets, including all amounts in the Servicer Account, and all such other amounts related to the Purchased Assets that are otherwise required to be remitted to Seller or any other Person pursuant to the Servicing Agreement, in accordance with the wiring instructions provided below (such account information, the “Control Account”), or in accordance with any other instructions that may be delivered to Loan Servicer by Buyer or its designee:

USActive 54634370.26    Exh. J-3


the Purchased Assets, (iv) Buyer may, in its sole discretion, sell its right to the Purchased Assets on a servicing released basis, and (v) Loan Servicer shall treat this instruction letter as a separate and distinct servicing agreement between Loan Servicer and Buyer (incorporating the terms of the Servicing Agreement by reference), subject to no setoff or counterclaims arising in Loan Servicer’s favor (or in the favor of any third party claiming through Loan Servicer) under any other agreement or arrangement between Loan Servicer, Seller or otherwise. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in the Servicing Agreement, in no event shall Buyer be liable for any fees, indemnities, costs, reimbursements or expenses incurred by Loan Servicer or Seller, or any of their respective Affiliates, or otherwise owed to Loan Servicer or Seller, or any of Loan Servicer’s or Seller’s respective Affiliates, at any time.
Section 6.    Reliance by Loan Servicer. Loan Servicer may rely and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon any notice, request, each consent, order, certificate, report, opinion or document (including, but not limited to, electronically confirmed facsimiles thereof) believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties. Loan Servicer shall have no obligation to review or confirm that actions taken pursuant to the foregoing in accordance with this instruction letter comply with any other agreement or document to which it is not a party. In particular, Loan Servicer need not investigate whether Buyer is entitled under the Repurchase Agreement to give a Default Notice.
Section 7.    Servicing Fees and Expenses. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in the Servicing Agreement, all [Servicing Fees and Servicing Expenses]2 (each as defined in the Servicing Agreement), together with any other unreimbursed fees (including, without limitation, termination fees), costs, advances and expenses otherwise due and payable thereunder to Loan Servicer (to the extent related to the Purchased Assets), shall not be withheld from Income prior to the remittance thereof to the Control Account. Instead, all such amounts shall be deposited by Loan Servicer as Income directly into the Control Account. All such amounts which are otherwise due and owing to Loan Servicer under the Servicing Agreement shall be separately and independently paid to Loan Servicer directly by Seller. For the avoidance of doubt, all Servicing Rights belong to Buyer, and no such Servicing Rights are owned by Loan Servicer or Seller in any respect.
Buyer, its Affiliates, and any director, officer, employee or agent of any of them, together with their successors and assigns, shall be indemnified and held harmless by Loan Servicer against any loss, liability or expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees of outside counsel) incurred by reason of (i) Loan Servicer’s willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties under the Servicing Agreement or this instruction letter, (ii) a breach of Loan Servicer’s representations and warranties as set forth in the Servicing Agreement or (iii) by reason of reckless disregard of Loan Servicer’s obligations or duties under the Servicing Agreement or this instruction letter.
Section 8.    Servicing Termination.
(a)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in the Servicing Agreement, Loan Servicer’s rights to service the Purchased Assets shall automatically terminate (i) upon Loan Servicer receiving a written termination notice from Buyer or its designee, or (ii) on the thirtieth (30th) day following the execution of this instruction letter, or if the term of this instruction letter is extended in writing by Buyer or its designee for the applicable additional thirty (30) day period, on the thirtieth (30th) day following the effective date of such extension (in each case, a “Servicing Termination”). In no event shall the term of the Servicing Agreement be extended for more than thirty (30) days in any single extension.
