shall be entitled to fees and other compensation in connection with such originations based on market-based pricing and terms that are consistent with the pricing and terms offered by the Servicer to unaffiliated third parties on a retail basis.  The amount of the compensation and the pricing and terms offered by the Servicer shall be subject to review by the Owner and the Servicer from time to time to reflect market rates.  The Owner shall reimburse the Servicer for any out of pocket expenses that the Servicer incurs in connection with any such origination, including title fees, legal fees and closing costs.
