SECTION 2.  Takeout Investor.  The Existing MLPSA is hereby amended by deleting all references to “Approved Investor” (other than in the definition of “Approved Investor”) in their entirety and replacing them with “Takeout Investor”.

SECTION 3.  Procedures for Purchases of Participation Certificates; Facility FeeSection 2(b) of the Existing MLPSA is hereby amended by deleting such subsection in its entirety and replacing it with the following:

(b)        If Purchaser elects to purchase any Participation Certificate, Purchaser shall pay (i) to Seller, or (ii) upon the receipt of a Warehouse Lender’s Release, to the applicable Warehouse Lender, on the Purchase Date, the amount of the Purchase Price (less the Holdback Amount) for such Participation Certificate upon receipt of a duly executed and properly completed Participation Certificate; provided that, if the Purchase Price (less the Holdback Amount) is insufficient to pay the release amount due to the Warehouse Lender, Seller shall remit to Purchaser the difference between the Purchase Price (less the Holdback Amount) and such release amount and Purchaser shall remit the full release amount to the Warehouse Lender.  Effective upon (i) execution of the Participation Certificate by an authorized representative of Seller (as set forth in the resolutions of the board of directors of Seller (or its equivalent governing body) as delivered to Purchaser) or, any additional signatory designated by such authorized representative of Seller to Purchaser from time to time (it being understood that the addition of a user on Purchaser’s warehouse lending website by an authorized representative of Seller shall be deemed a valid designation of such user as an additional signatory) and (ii) delivery of such Participation Certificate to Purchaser, Seller hereby assigns to Purchaser all of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to such Participation Certificate and a 100% undivided beneficial interest in the Related Mortgage Loans.  In the event that Purchaser does not transmit such payment, (i) any Participation Certificate delivered by Custodian to Purchaser in anticipation of such purchase shall automatically be null and void, and (ii) Purchaser will not consummate the transactions contemplated in the applicable Trade Assignment.


 

SECTION 4.   Record Title to Mortgage Loans; Intent of Parties; Security InterestSection 8(c) of the Existing MLPSA is hereby amended by deleting such subsection in its entirety and replacing it with the following:

(c)        Purchaser and Seller confirm that the transactions contemplated herein are intended to be sales of the Participation Certificates by Seller to Purchaser rather than borrowings secured by the Participation Certificates.  In the event, for any reason, any transaction is construed by any court or regulatory authority as a borrowing rather than as a sale, Seller and Purchaser intend that Purchaser or its Assignee, as the case may be, shall have a perfected first priority security interest in Seller’s interest in the Participation Certificates; all of the servicing rights with respect to the Related Mortgage Loans, and all documentation and rights to receive documentation related to such servicing rights and the servicing of the Related Mortgage Loans; the Custodial Account and all amounts on deposit therein, the Related Mortgage Loans subject to each Participation Certificate, all documents, records (including, without limitation, Servicing Records and copies of all documentation in connection with the underwriting and origination of any Related Mortgage Loan that evidences compliance with the Ability to Repay Rule and the QM Rule), instruments and data evidencing the Related Mortgage Loans and the servicing thereof, the Securities to be issued as contemplated hereunder and all proceeds thereof, the Takeout Commitments, any funds of the Seller at any time deposited or held in the Over/Under Account and the proceeds of any and all of the foregoing (collectively, the “Collateral”), free and clear of adverse claims.  In any case, Seller hereby grants to Purchaser or its Assignee, as the case may be, a first priority security interest in and lien upon the Collateral, free and clear of adverse claims.  This Agreement shall constitute a security agreement, the Custodian shall be deemed to be an independent custodian for purposes of perfection of the security interest herein granted to Purchaser, and Purchaser or each such Assignee shall have all of the rights of a secured party under applicable law.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing and for the avoidance of doubt, if any determination is made that the servicing rights with respect to the Related Mortgage Loans were not sold by Seller to Purchaser or that that such servicing rights are not an interest in the Related Mortgage Loans and are severable from the Related Mortgage Loans despite Purchaser’s and Seller’s express intent herein to treat them as included in the purchase and sale transaction, Seller hereby expressly pledges, assigns and grants to Purchaser a continuing first priority security interest in and lien upon the servicing rights and all documentation and rights to receive documentation related to such servicing rights and the servicing of each of the Related Mortgage Loans (the “Related Credit Enhancement”).  The Collateral and Related Credit Enhancement is hereby pledged as further security for Seller’s obligations to Purchaser hereunder.

SECTION 5.   Representations and WarrantiesSection 9 of the Existing MLPSA is hereby amended by (i) deleting “and” at the end of subsection (a)(xi); (ii) deleting “.” at the end of subsection (a)(xii) and replacing it with “;”; and (iii) adding the following new subsections (a)(xiii), (a)(xiv) and (a)(xx) at the end thereof:
