in the reasonable judgment of the Master Servicer or the Trustee, as the case may be, will not be ultimately recoverable, together with any accrued and unpaid interest thereon at the Reimbursement Rate, from Late Collections or any other recovery on or in respect of such Mortgage Loan or REO Loan; provided, however, that the Special Servicer may, at its option (with respect to any Specially Serviced Loan, prior to the occurrence of a Consultation Termination Event (other than with respect to any Excluded Loan), in consultation with the Directing Certificateholder), make a determination in accordance with the Servicing Standard, that any P&I Advance previously made or proposed to be made is a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance and shall deliver to the Master Servicer (and with respect to a Serviced Mortgage Loan, the Master Servicer shall deliver to any master servicer under any Other Pooling and Servicing Agreement, and, with respect to a Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan, the Master Servicer shall deliver to the related Non-Serviced Master Servicer under the Non-Serviced PSA), the Certificate Administrator, the Trustee, the Operating Advisor and the 17g-5 Information Provider notice of such determination. Any such determination may be conclusively relied upon by, but shall not be binding upon, the Master Servicer and the Trustee, provided, however, that the Special Servicer shall have no such obligation to make an affirmative determination that any P&I Advance is or would be recoverable and in the absence of a determination by the Special Servicer that such P&I Advance is or would be a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance, such decision shall remain with the Master Servicer or Trustee, as applicable. If the Special Servicer makes a determination that only a portion, and not all, of any previously made or proposed P&I Advance is a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance, the Master Servicer and the Trustee shall have the right to make its own subsequent determination that any remaining portion of any such previously made or proposed P&I Advance is a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance. With respect to any Non-Serviced Whole Loan, if any Non-Serviced Master Servicer or Non-Serviced Special Servicer, as applicable, in connection with a securitization of the related Non-Serviced Companion Loan determines that a P&I Advance with respect to the related Non-Serviced Companion Loan, if made, would be a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance, such determination shall not be binding on the Master Servicer and the Trustee as it relates to any proposed P&I Advance with respect to the related Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan. Similarly, with respect to the related Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan, if the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, determines that any P&I Advance with respect to a related Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan, if made, would be a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance, such determination shall not be binding on the related Non-Serviced Master Servicer and related Non-Serviced Trustee as it relates to any proposed P&I Advance with respect to the related Non-Serviced Companion Loan (unless the related Non-Serviced PSA provides otherwise). In making such recoverability determination, the Master Servicer, Special Servicer or Trustee, as applicable, shall be entitled (a) to consider (among other things) (i) the obligations of the Mortgagor under the terms of the related Mortgage Loan or Companion Loan(s), as applicable, as it may have been modified and (ii) the related Mortgaged Properties in their “as-is” or then-current conditions and occupancies, as modified by such party’s assumptions (consistent with the Servicing Standard in the case of the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer or in its good faith business judgment in the case of the Trustee, solely in its capacity as Trustee) regarding the possibility and effects of future adverse change with respect to such Mortgaged Properties, (b) to estimate and consider (consistent with the Servicing Standard in the case of the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer or in its good faith business judgment in the case of the Trustee, solely in its capacity as Trustee) (among other things) future expenses, (c) to estimate and consider (consistent with the Servicing Standard in

the case of the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer or in its good faith business judgment in the case of the Trustee, solely in its capacity as Trustee) (among other things) the timing of recoveries, (d) to give due regard to the existence of any Nonrecoverable Advances which, at the time of such consideration, the recovery of which are being deferred or delayed by the Master Servicer, the Trustee or the Special Servicer, in light of the fact that related proceeds are a source of recovery not only for the Advance under consideration but also a potential source of recovery for such delayed or deferred Advance and (e) with respect to a Non-Serviced Whole Loan, any non-recoverability determination of the Non-Serviced Master Servicer or Non-Serviced Trustee under the related Non-Serviced PSA relating to a principal and interest advance for a Non-Serviced Companion Loan. In addition, any Person, in considering whether a P&I Advance is a Nonrecoverable Advance, shall be entitled to give due regard to the existence of any outstanding Nonrecoverable Advance or Workout-Delayed Reimbursement Amount with respect to other Mortgage Loans, the reimbursement of which, at the time of such consideration, is being deferred or delayed by the Master Servicer, the Trustee or the Special Servicer because there is insufficient principal available for such recovery, in light of the fact that proceeds on the related Mortgage Loan are a source of recovery not only for the P&I Advance under consideration, but also as a potential source of reimbursement of such Nonrecoverable Advance or Workout-Delayed Reimbursement Amounts which are or may be being deferred or delayed. In addition, any such Person may update or change its recoverability determinations at any time (but not reverse any other Person’s determination that an Advance is a Nonrecoverable Advance) and, consistent with the Servicing Standard, in the case of the Master Servicer or in its good faith business judgment in the case of the Trustee (solely in its capacity as Trustee), may obtain at the expense of the Trust any reasonably required analysis, Appraisals or market value estimates or other information for making a recoverability determination (and, upon the reasonable request by the Trustee, Master Servicer or Special Servicer, as applicable, the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer shall deliver any relevant Appraisals or market value estimates in its possession to the requesting party for such purpose). Absent bad faith, the Master Servicer’s, Special Servicer’s or the Trustee’s determination as to the recoverability of any P&I Advance shall be conclusive and binding on the Certificateholders. The determination by the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, as the case may be, that a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance has been made or that any proposed P&I Advance, if made, would constitute a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance, or any updated or changed recoverability determination, shall be evidenced by an Officer’s Certificate delivered by either the Special Servicer or the Master Servicer to the other and to the Trustee, the Certificate Administrator, the Directing Certificateholder (but only prior to the occurrence of a Consultation Termination Event and only with respect to any Mortgage Loan other than an Excluded Loan) (and, in the case of a Serviced Mortgage Loan, any Other Servicer), the Operating Advisor (but only in the case of the Special Servicer) and the Depositor, or by the Trustee to the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Operating Advisor and the Certificate Administrator (and, in the case of a Serviced Mortgage Loan, any Other Servicer). The Officer’s Certificate shall set forth such determination of nonrecoverability and the considerations of the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, forming the basis of such determination (which shall be accompanied by, to the extent available, related income and expense statements, rent rolls, occupancy status, property inspections and any other information used by the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, to make such determination and shall include any existing Appraisal of the related Mortgage Loan or the related Mortgaged Property). The Trustee shall be entitled to conclusively rely on

the Master Servicer’s or Special Servicer’s determination that a P&I Advance is or would be nonrecoverable, and the Master Servicer shall be entitled to conclusively rely on the Special Servicer’s determination that a P&I Advance is or would be nonrecoverable. In the case of a cross-collateralized Mortgage Loan (if any), such recoverability determination shall take into account the cross-collateralization of the related cross-collateralized Mortgage Loan.

 

Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance”: Any Servicing Advance previously made or proposed to be made in respect of a Mortgage Loan (other than a Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan), Whole Loan or REO Property which, in the reasonable judgment of the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, as the case may be, will not be ultimately recoverable, together with any accrued and unpaid interest thereon, at the Reimbursement Rate, from Late Collections or any other recovery on or in respect of such Mortgage Loan, Whole Loan or REO Property. In making such recoverability determination, such Person shall be entitled (a) to consider (among other things) (i) the obligations of the Mortgagor under the terms of the related Mortgage Loan or Companion Loan, as applicable, as it may have been modified and (ii) the related Mortgaged Properties in their “as-is” or then-current conditions and occupancies, as modified by such party’s assumptions (consistent with the Servicing Standard in the case of the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer or in its good faith business judgment in the case of the Trustee, solely in its capacity as Trustee) regarding the possibility and effects of future adverse change with respect to such Mortgaged Properties, (b) to estimate and consider (consistent with the Servicing Standard in the case of the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer or in its good faith business judgment in the case of the Trustee, solely in its capacity as Trustee) (among other things) future expenses, (c) to estimate and consider (consistent with the Servicing Standard in the case of the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer or in its good faith business judgment in the case of the Trustee, solely in its capacity as Trustee) (among other things) the timing of recoveries and (d) to give due regard to the existence of any Nonrecoverable Advances which, at the time of such consideration, the recovery of which are being deferred or delayed by the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee because there is insufficient principal available for such reimbursement, in light of the fact that related proceeds are a source of recovery not only for the Advance under consideration but also a potential source of recovery for such delayed or deferred Advance. In addition, any Person, in considering whether a Servicing Advance is a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance, shall be entitled to give due regard to the existence of any Nonrecoverable Advance or Workout-Delayed Reimbursement Amounts with respect to other Mortgage Loans, the reimbursement of which, at the time of such consideration, is being deferred or delayed by the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, in light of the fact that proceeds on the related Mortgage Loan are a source of recovery not only for the Servicing Advance under consideration, but also as a potential source of recovery of such Nonrecoverable Advance or Workout-Delayed Reimbursement Amounts which are or may be being deferred or delayed. In addition, any such Person may update or change its recoverability determinations at any time (but not reverse any other Person’s determination that an Advance is a Nonrecoverable Advance) and, consistent with the Servicing Standard, in the case of the Master Servicer or in its good faith business judgment in the case of the Trustee (solely in its capacity as Trustee), may obtain at the expense of the Trust any reasonably required analysis, Appraisals or market value estimates or other information for making a recoverability determination (and, upon the reasonable request by the Trustee, Master Servicer or Special Servicer, as applicable, the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer shall deliver any relevant Appraisals or market value estimates in its possession to the requesting party for such purpose).

Absent bad faith, the Master Servicer’s, Special Servicer’s or the Trustee’s determination as to the recoverability of any Servicing Advance shall be conclusive and binding on the Certificateholders. The determination by the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, as the case may be, that a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance has been made or that any proposed Servicing Advance, if made, would constitute a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance, or any updated or changed recoverability determination, shall be evidenced by an Officer’s Certificate delivered by either of the Special Servicer or Master Servicer to the other and to the Trustee, the Certificate Administrator, the Directing Certificateholder (but only prior to the occurrence of a Consultation Termination Event and only with respect to any Mortgage Loan other than an Excluded Loan) (and in the case of a Serviced Mortgage Loan, any Other Servicer and Other Trustee), the Operating Advisor (but only in the case of the Special Servicer) and the Depositor, or by the Trustee to the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Operating Advisor and the Certificate Administrator (and in the case of a Serviced Mortgage Loan, any Other Servicer); provided, however, that the Special Servicer may, at its option (with respect to any Specially Serviced Loan, prior to the occurrence of a Consultation Termination Event (other than with respect to any Excluded Loan), in consultation with the Directing Certificateholder) make a determination in accordance with the Servicing Standard, that any Servicing Advance previously made or proposed to be made is a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance and shall deliver to the Master Servicer (and with respect to a Serviced Mortgage Loan, the Master Servicer shall deliver to the applicable master servicer under the related Other Pooling and Servicing Agreement, and with respect to a Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan, the Master Servicer shall deliver to the related Non-Serviced Master), the Certificate Administrator, the Trustee, the Operating Advisor and the 17g-5 Information Provider notice of such determination. Any such determination may be conclusively relied upon by, but shall not be binding upon, the Master Servicer and the Trustee, provided, however, that the Special Servicer shall have no such obligation to make an affirmative determination that any Servicing Advance is or would be recoverable and in the absence of a determination by the Special Servicer that such Servicing Advance is or would be a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance, such decision shall remain with the Master Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable. If the Special Servicer makes a determination that only a portion, and not all, of any previously made or proposed Servicing Advance is a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance, the Master Servicer and the Trustee shall each have the right to make its own subsequent determination that any remaining portion of any such previously made or proposed Servicing Advance is a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance. The Officer’s Certificate shall set forth such determination of nonrecoverability and the considerations of the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, forming the basis of such determination (which shall be accompanied by, to the extent available, related income and expense statements, rent rolls, occupancy status, property inspections and any other information used by the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, to make such determination and shall include any existing Appraisal with respect to the related Mortgage Loan, Serviced Companion Loan or related Mortgaged Property). The Special Servicer shall promptly furnish any party required to make Servicing Advances hereunder with any information in its possession regarding the Specially Serviced Loans and REO Properties as such party required to make Servicing Advances may reasonably request for purposes of making recoverability determinations. The Trustee shall be entitled to conclusively rely on the Master Servicer’s or Special Servicer’s determination that a Servicing Advance is or would be nonrecoverable, and the Master Servicer shall be entitled to conclusively rely on the Special

Servicer’s determination that a Servicing Advance is or would be nonrecoverable. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if the Special Servicer requests that the Master Servicer make a Servicing Advance, the Master Servicer may conclusively rely on such request as evidence that such advance is not a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance; provided, however, the Special Servicer shall not be entitled to make such a request more frequently than once per calendar month with respect to Servicing Advances other than emergency advances (although such request may relate to more than one Servicing Advance). In the case of a cross-collateralized Mortgage Loan (if any), such recoverability determination shall take into account the cross-collateralization of the related cross-collateralized Mortgage Loan. The determination as to the recoverability of any Servicing Advance previously made or proposed to be made in respect of a Non-Serviced Whole Loan shall be made by the related Non-Serviced Master Servicer, Non-Serviced Special Servicer or Non-Serviced Trustee, as the case may be, pursuant to the related Non-Serviced PSA.
