MASTER REPURCHASE AGREEMENT
THIS MASTER REPURCHASE AGREEMENT is made and entered into as of September 28, 2012, between and among Pulte Mortgage LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Seller”), and Comerica Bank, as Agent and representative of itself as a Buyer and the other Buyers (the “Agent” and sometimes “Comerica Bank”), and the other Buyers, as defined in Section 1.2.
RECITALS
1 Applicability and Defined Terms.
1.1.    Applicability. From time to time the parties hereto may enter into transactions in which the Seller agrees to transfer to the Agent on behalf of the Buyers, Eligible Loans on a servicing released basis against the transfer of funds by the Buyers, with a simultaneous agreement by the Buyers to transfer to the Seller such Eligible Loans at a date certain or on demand in the event of termination pursuant to Section 18.2 hereof, or if no demand is sooner made, on the Termination Date, against the transfer of funds by the Seller. Each such transaction shall be referred to herein as a “Transaction” and shall be governed by this Agreement, as hereinafter defined.
Comerica Bank has also agreed to provide a separate revolving swing line repurchase facility to initially and temporarily purchase Eligible Loans pending their purchase by all of the Buyers pursuant to this Agreement.
The parties hereby specifically declare that it is their intention that this Master Repurchase Agreement (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Agreement,” which term includes the preamble above) and the purchases of Eligible Loans made pursuant to it (under both its regular and swing line provisions) are to be treated as repurchase transactions under the Title 11 of the United States Code, as amended (the “Bankruptcy Code”), including all rights that accrue to the Buyers by virtue of sections 559, 561 and 562 of the Bankruptcy Code. This Agreement also contains lien provisions with respect to the Purchased Loans so that if, contrary to the intent of the parties, any court of competent jurisdiction characterizes any Transaction as a financing, rather than a purchase, under applicable law, including the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, the Agent is deemed to have a first priority perfected security interest in and to the Purchased Loans to secure the payment and performance of all of the Seller’s Obligations under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents.
The Buyers’ agreement to establish and continue the revolving repurchase facilities, and Comerica Bank’s agreement to establish and continue such revolving swing line repurchase facility, are each made upon and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If there is any conflict or inconsistency between any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement and any of the other Repurchase Documents, this Agreement shall govern and control. If there is any conflict between any provision of this Agreement and any later supplement, amendment, restatement or replacement of it, then the latter shall govern and control.

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including without limitation the terms and conditions set forth in Section 4 and Section 14) and provided no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing that has not been waived by the Buyers or the Required Buyers, as applicable (or, if one has occurred and not been so cured or declared waived, if all of the Buyers, in their sole discretion and with or without waiving such Default or Event of Default, have elected in writing that Transactions under this Agreement shall continue nonetheless), the Buyers agree to make revolving purchases of Eligible Loans on a servicing released basis through but not including the Termination Date, so long as the Aggregate Outstanding Purchase Price does not exceed the Maximum Aggregate Commitment and so long as each Buyer’s Committed Sum is not exceeded. The Buyers’ respective Committed Sums and the Maximum Aggregate Commitment are set forth on Schedule BC in effect at the relevant time, as it may have been amended or restated pursuant to this Agreement. Upon the joinder of additional Buyer(s), if any, the parties agree to approve in writing revised and updated versions of Schedule BC.

Each Buyer shall be obligated to fund only that Buyer’s own Funding Share of any Transaction requested, and no Buyer shall be obligated to the Seller or any other Buyer to fund a greater share of any Transaction. No Buyer shall be excused from funding its applicable Funding Share of any Transaction merely because any other Buyer has failed or refused to fund its relevant Funding Share of that or any other Transaction. If any Buyer fails to fund its Funding Share of any Transaction (a “Nonfunding Buyer”), the Agent (in its sole and absolute discretion) may choose to fund the amount that such Nonfunding Buyer failed or refused to fund, or the Agent as a Buyer and the other Buyers who are willing to do so may (in each of their sole and absolute discretion) do so in the proportion that the Committed Sum of each bears to the total Committed Sums of all Buyers that have funded (or are funding) their own Funding Shares of that Transaction and that are willing to fund part of the Funding Share of such Nonfunding Buyer. Should the Agent and/or any other Buyer(s) fund any or all of the Nonfunding Buyer’s Funding Share of any Transaction, then the Nonfunding Buyer shall have the obligation to deliver such amount to the Agent (for its own account and/or for distribution to the Buyer(s) who funded it, as the case may be) in immediately available funds on the next Business Day.

The obligations of the Buyers hereunder are several and not joint.
2.2.    Expiration or Termination of the Commitments. Unless extended in writing or terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement, the Buyers’ Commitments (including Comerica Bank’s Swing Line Commitment) shall automatically expire at the close of business on the Termination Date, without any requirement for notice or any other action by the Agent, any of the Buyers or any other Person.

(iii)    so long as (A) the Swing Line Limit is not exceeded and (B) such Swing Line Transaction will not cause the sum of Comerica Bank’s Funding Share of the Swing Line Transactions plus Comerica Bank’s Funding Share of all Open Transactions to exceed Comerica Bank’s Commitment;
(iv)    so long as, after giving effect to the proposed Swing Line Transaction, the Aggregate Outstanding Purchase Price would not exceed the Maximum Aggregate Commitment;
(v)    provided that a Request/Confirmation has been received by the Agent and the Swing Line Buyer by no later than 3:30 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the Business Day such Transaction is to be funded;

Detroit\1205907\17\



(b)    All Swing Line Transactions shall have a Price Differential from the date funded until the date repaid and the Repurchase Price therefor shall be due and payable to Comerica Bank at the same rate(s) as would be applicable if such Swing Line Transactions had been funded as Regular Transactions by all Buyers, instead of having been funded by the Swing Line Buyer alone as Swing Line Transactions.
(c)    On each Swing Line Refunding Due Date, each Swing Line Transaction shall terminate and the Seller shall repurchase all Purchased Loans subject to such Swing Line Transaction to the extent such Transaction is not converted to a Regular Transaction pursuant to this Section 2.5.
(d)    The Swing Line Buyer may at any time in its sole discretion with respect to any outstanding Swing Line Transaction, require each Buyer (including the Swing Line Buyer) to fund such Swing Line Transaction, by delivering notice to each Buyer. Unless an Event of Default under Section 18.1(b) shall have occurred and be continuing on such Swing Line Refunding Due Date (in which event the procedures under clause (e) shall apply), no later than 4:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on such Swing Line Refunding Due Date, each Buyer shall transfer its Funding Share in immediately available funds to Agent, at the office of Agent located at 411 W. Lafayette Blvd. Detroit, MI 48226, which shall be paid by Agent to the Swing Line Buyer for application against the Swing Line Transaction, whereupon the Swing Line Transaction shall be deemed a Regular Transaction.
(e)    If, on any Swing Line Refunding Due Date, an Event of Default under Section 18.1(b) shall have occurred and be continuing, each Buyer shall, no later than 4:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on such Swing Line Refunding Due Date, purchase a participation in the Swing Line Transaction by immediately transferring to the Agent, for the benefit of the Swing Line Buyer, in immediately available funds, an amount equal to its Funding Share of the Purchase Price of such Swing Line Transaction, and upon its receipt thereof, the Agent shall deliver to such Buyer a certificate evidencing such participation.
(f)    Unless a Buyer shall have notified the Swing Line Buyer, prior to any Swing Line Transaction, that any applicable condition precedent set forth in Sections 14.1 or 14.2 had not then been satisfied, such Buyer’s obligation to convert the Swing Line Transaction to a Regular Transaction pursuant to clause (d) of this Section 2.5 or to purchase a participation in respect of such Swing Line Transaction pursuant to clause (e) of this Section 2.5 shall be unconditional, continuing, irrevocable and absolute and shall not be affected by any circumstances, including, without limitation, (i) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Buyer may have against the Agent, the Swing Line Buyer or any other Person, (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or Event of Default, (iii) any adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise) of the Seller, (iv) the expiration, cancellation or termination, with or without cause of some or all of such Buyers’ Commitments or if such Commitment has been waived, released or excused for any reason whatsoever or (v) any other circumstances, happening or event whatsoever. In the event that any Buyer fails to make payment to the Agent of any amount due under this Section 2.5, the Agent shall be entitled to receive, retain and apply against such obligation the Repurchase Prices (including Price Differential) otherwise payable to such Buyer hereunder

31
Detroit\1205907\17\



until the Agent receives such payment from such Buyer or such obligation is otherwise fully satisfied. In addition to the foregoing, if for any reason any Buyer fails to make payment to the Agent of any amount due under this Section 2.5, such Buyer shall be deemed, at the option of the Agent, to have unconditionally and irrevocably purchased from the Swing Line Buyer, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation in the applicable Swing Line Transaction in the amount of such Buyer’s Funding Share of that Transaction, and such interest and participation may be recovered from such Buyer together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Rate for each day during the period commencing on the date of demand and ending on the date such amount is received. On the Termination Date, the Seller shall repurchase all Purchased Loans then subject to a Swing Line Transaction.
(g)    The Agent shall disburse to the Swing Line Buyer an amount equal to the sum of the Funding Shares funded by all of the other Buyers in respect of the refunding of any Swing Line Transaction; provided that if a Buyer other than the Swing Line Buyer advises the Agent by telephone and confirms the advice by fax that such Buyer has placed all of its Funding Share on the federal funds wire to the Agent, the Agent shall continue to keep the Swing Line Transaction outstanding to the extent of that Buyer’s Funding Share so wired until such Buyer’s Funding Share is received by Agent, and the Agent shall then repay the Swing Line Buyer that still-outstanding portion of the Swing Line Transaction from such funds wired to and received by the Agent, and the Price Differential accrued at the Pricing Rate(s) applicable to the Transaction on that Funding Share for the period from (and including) the relevant Swing Line Refunding Due Date to (but excluding) the date such Buyer’s Funding Share is received by the Agent shall belong to the Swing Line Buyer. If any Buyer fails to fund its Funding Share to fund a Swing Line Transaction in accordance with clause (d) of this Section 2.5, or fails to fund its Funding Share to purchase a participation in a Swing Line Transaction in accordance with clause (e) of this Section 2.5, then that Buyer shall also be obligated to pay to the Swing Line Buyer interest on the Funding Share so due from such Buyer to the Swing Line Buyer at the Federal Funds Rate from (and including) such Swing Line Refunding Due Date to (but excluding) the date of payment of such required amount.
(h)    All accrued Price Differential on Swing Line Transactions shall be due and payable by the Seller to the Agent (for distribution to the Swing Line Buyer) on the Price Differential payment due date (determined under Section 5) next following the date of the Swing Line Transaction. All Price Differential accrued on Swing Line Transactions through the applicable Swing Line Refunding Due Date shall be due and payable by the Seller to the Agent (for distribution to the Swing Line Buyer) no later than two (2) Business Days after the applicable Swing Line Refunding Due Date, but in no than event later the Termination Date.
2.6.    Optional Termination, Reduction and Increase of Buyers’ Commitments.
(a)    The Seller may, at any time, without premium or penalty, upon not less than five (5) Business Days prior written notice to the Agent, reduce or terminate the Maximum Aggregate Commitment, ratably, with such reduction in a minimum aggregate amount for all the Buyers of Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000), or, if more, in an integral multiple of

Upon termination in full of the Buyers’ Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.6, the Seller shall pay to the Agent for the ratable benefit of the Buyers the full amount of all outstanding Obligations under the Repurchase Documents.
(b)    Provided Seller has not reduced or terminated the Maximum Aggregate Commitment under paragraph (a) of this Section, the Seller shall have a one-time option, without premium or penalty, upon not less than five (5) Business Days prior written notice to the Agent, to reduce the Maximum Aggregate Commitment ratably to Seventy Five Million Dollars ($75,000,000); provided, however, that at no time may the Aggregate Outstanding Purchase Price exceed the Maximum Aggregate Commitment after giving effect to such reduction. In the event that Seller exercises the option to reduce the Maximum Aggregate Commitment under this paragraph (b), so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and Seller has not reduced or terminated the Maximum Aggregate Commitment under paragraph (a) of this Section, Seller shall have the a one-time option, without premium or penalty, upon not less than five (5) Business Days prior written notice to the Agent, to increase the Maximum Aggregate Commitment ratably back to the original amount of One Hundred Fifty Million Dollars ($150,000,000).

(a)    Pursuant to the Parent Repurchase Agreement, the Seller has sold certain Mortgage Loans and related rights to Parent prior to the Effective Date (collectively, the “Existing Mortgage Loan Portfolio”) with Seller having the right, and obligation, to repurchase the Existing Mortgage Loan Portfolio. The Basic Papers for such Mortgage Loans to be repurchased are held by Bank of New York Mellon Trust Co., N.A., as custodian for Parent (in such capacity, “Parent Custodian”). Prior to the Effective Date, the Seller has furnished to the Agent (i) a Request/Confirmation for the initial Transaction to purchase all or a portion of the Existing Mortgage Loan Portfolio (such Mortgage Loans to be purchased under such Request/Confirmation being referred to herein as “Initial Loans to be Purchased”), and (ii) a letter signed by the Parent (the “Parent Repurchase Letter”) which shall (A) state the repurchase price required to be paid to Parent for Seller to repurchase the Initial Loans to be Purchased from the Parent on the Effective Date (the “Initial Loans Repurchase Price”), (B) provide that upon receipt of the Initial Loans Repurchase Price, Parent automatically releases any security interest it may have in the Initial Loans to be

Purchased or the Collateral with respect thereto, and Parent shall have no further ownership, security interest or other interest therein, (C) irrevocably authorize and direct the Parent Custodian, upon payment by Agent to Parent of the Initial Loans Repurchase Price, to deliver to Custodian all Basic Papers and other documents in Parent Custodian’s possession evidencing or relating to any of the Initial Loans to be Purchased, and deliver to Agent any escrows, principal and interest payments and other funds in Parent Custodian’s possession constituting Collateral relating to any of the Initial Loans to be Purchased, and (D) provide that, upon payment by Agent to Parent of the Initial Loans Repurchase Price, Parent shall pay over to Agent any escrows, principal and interest payments and other funds in Parent’s possession constituting Collateral relating to any of the Initial Loans to be Purchased. Agent shall deposit any escrows or principal and interest payments with respect to any Initial Loans to be Purchased received under this paragraph into the Escrow Account or Income Account, as applicable. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, on the Effective Date the Buyers shall purchase all Initial Loans to be Purchased (such Transaction being referred to herein as the “Initial Transaction”). Seller represents and warrants to the Agent and the Buyers that all Initial Loans to be Purchased will, upon purchase by Buyers, be Eligible Loans. To the extent the Initial Loans Repurchase Price is greater than the Purchase Price for the Initial Loans to be Purchased under this Agreement, prior to the Effective Date Seller shall transfer to Agent (in the case of cash) or the Custodian (in the case of Additional Purchased Loans), either (at the Seller’s option) cash, Additional Purchased Loans, or a combination of cash and Additional Purchased Loans, so that the cash and the aggregate Purchase Value of the Initial Loans to be Purchased and Additional Purchased Loans will thereupon at least equal the Purchase Price for the Initial Loans to be Purchased. On the Effective Date, the proceeds of the Initial Transaction together with the amount of any cash required to be paid by Seller to Agent as aforesaid, shall be paid to Parent by wire transfer in accordance with the wire instructions provided in the Parent Repurchase Letter, to enable the Seller to repurchase from Parent the Initial Loans to be Purchased.

With respect to any Repurchase Settlement Account Disbursement Request furnished by Seller to Agent, if, and only if, (i) no Default has occurred unless it has been either cured by the Seller or waived in writing by the Agent (acting with the requisite consent of the Buyers as provided in this Agreement), (ii) no Event of Default has occurred unless it has been either cured by the Seller or waived in writing by the Agent (acting with the requisite consent of the Buyers as provided in this Agreement), (iii) no Margin Deficit exists that would not be eliminated by disbursements in accordance with such Repurchase Settlement Account Disbursement Request, and (iv) no Default or Event of Default or Margin Deficit will result from the making of the disbursements requested in such Repurchase Settlement Account Disbursement Request, then Agent shall disburse the funds in the Repurchase Settlement Account in accordance with the Repurchase Settlement Account Disbursement Request. After the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Seller shall have no further right to request disbursements of funds in the Repurchase Settlement Account, and Agent may at any time and from time to time apply funds in the Repurchase Settlement Account to pay Seller’s Obligations whether or not then

36
Detroit\1205907\17\



due.
3.8.    Delivery of Additional Mortgage Loans. The Seller may from time to time deliver to the Custodian for and on behalf of Agent Mortgage Loans that are also Eligible Loans without entering into a new Transaction by providing to the Custodian the documents required under Section 3.1(a) with respect to such Mortgage Loans. The Seller and the Buyers agree that such Mortgage Loans delivered pursuant to this Section 3.8 shall be treated as Purchased Loans subject to the existing Transactions hereunder from the date of such delivery.
3.9.    Application of Purchase Price Decreases . Upon receipt by the Agent of amounts paid or prepaid as Purchase Price Decreases (except upon the exercise of remedies provided in Section 18) the Agent shall apply amounts so received to outstanding Purchase Price.
3.10.    Defaulting Buyers. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Buyer becomes a Defaulting Buyer, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Buyer is a Defaulting Buyer:
(a)    applicable fees shall cease to accrue on the unfunded portion of the Commitment of such Defaulting Buyer pursuant to Section 9.1;
(b)    the Commitment of and the outstanding Purchase Prices paid by such Defaulting Buyer shall not be included in determining whether all Buyers or the Required Buyers have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment or waiver pursuant to Section 22), provided that any waiver, amendment or modification requiring the consent of all Buyers or each affected Buyer which affects such Defaulting Buyer differently than other affected Buyers shall require the consent of such Defaulting Buyer;
(c)    if any Swing Line Transactions shall exist at the time a Buyer becomes a Defaulting Buyer then the Seller shall within one Business Day following notice by the Agent repurchase the Purchased Loans subject to such Swing Line Transactions;
(d)    the respective ownership interests of both (i) the Defaulting Buyer and (ii) the Buyer (or Buyers) that funded the Defaulting Buyer’s Funding Share(s) of any Transaction shall be proportionately decreased and increased, respectively, to the same extent as if their respective Committed Sums were changed in direct proportion to the unreimbursed balance outstanding from time to time thereafter of the amount so funded;
(e)    if no other Buyer funds any of the Defaulting Buyer’s Funding Share, then the Pro Rata ownership interests of the Buyers in the Purchased Loans shall be changed, so that each Buyer’s Pro Rata ownership interest in the Purchased Loans is equal to the ratio of (i) the sum of the portions of the Purchase Prices paid by that Buyer in all Open Transactions on that day to (ii) the total of the Purchase Prices paid by all Buyers in all Open Transactions on that day, but the Defaulting Buyer’s share of all subsequent distributions of any Repurchase Price and Margin Deficit payments shall be paid to the other Buyers, pro rata among them in the ratio that the Pro Rata ownership interest in the Purchased Loans owned by each bears to the aggregate Pro Rata ownership interests in the Purchased Loans

37
Detroit\1205907\17\



of all such other Buyers, and the Buyers’ respective Pro Rata ownership interests in the Purchased Loans shall be readjusted after each such payment, until their Pro Rata ownership interests are restored to what they were before any Defaulting Buyer failed to fund. Notwithstanding any such changes in the Buyers’ Pro Rata ownership interests in any Purchased Loan due to any Buyer’s failure to fund its Funding Share(s) of any Transaction, such failure to fund shall not diminish any Buyer’s Funding Share(s) for subsequent Transactions; and
(f)    any amount payable to such Defaulting Buyer hereunder (whether on account of Repurchase Price, Price Differential, Margin Deficits, Purchase Price Decrease, fees or otherwise and including any amount that would otherwise be payable to such Defaulting Buyer pursuant to Section 20.2 but excluding Section 6.4) shall, in lieu of being distributed to such Defaulting Buyer, be retained by the Agent in a segregated account and, subject to any applicable requirements of law, be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Agent (i) first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Buyer to the Agent hereunder, (ii) second, pro rata, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Buyer to the Swing Line Buyer hereunder, (iii) third, to the funding of any Transaction or the funding of any participating interest in any Swing Line Transaction in respect of which such Defaulting Buyer has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Agent, (iv) fourth, if so determined by the Agent and the Seller, held in such account as cash collateral for future funding obligations of the Defaulting Buyer under this Agreement, (v) fifth, pro rata, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Seller or the Buyers as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Seller or any Buyer against such Defaulting Buyer as a result of such Defaulting Buyer’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement, and (vi) sixth, to such Defaulting Buyer or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided, that if such payment is (x) a Purchase Price Decrease and (y) made at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 14.2 are satisfied, such payment shall be applied solely to reduce the Purchase Prices owed to all Buyers that are not Defaulting Buyers Pro Rata prior to being applied to any Purchase Prices owed to any Defaulting Buyer.
In the event that the Agent, the Seller and the Swing Line Buyer each agrees that a Defaulting Buyer has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Buyer to be a Defaulting Buyer (“Redeemed Buyer”), then the Swing Line Exposure of the other Buyers shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Redeemed Buyer’s Commitment and on such date such Redeemed Buyer shall purchase from the other Buyers at par a portion of the Open Transactions as the Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Redeemed Buyer to participate in such Open Transactions in accordance with its Pro Rata share. For purposes of this Section 3.11, “Swing Line Exposure” means, with respect to any Buyer at any time, such Buyer’s Pro Rata share of the aggregate Purchase Prices of all Swing Line Transactions outstanding at such time.
Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be deemed to constitute a waiver by the Seller of any of its rights or remedies (whether in equity or law) against any Buyer which fails to fund any Transaction hereunder at the time or in the amount required to be funded under the terms of this Agreement.

Prior to or concurrently with the execution of any Price Differential Adjustment Agreement, any such Buyer shall inform the Agent of the terms of any such adjustments (such

40
Detroit\1205907\17\

If cash is to be remitted the Agent shall treat the receipt of the written request of the Seller under this Section 6.1(b) as if it were a request for a Transaction. To the extent the Agent remits cash to the Seller, such cash shall be (A) additional Purchase Price with respect to the Transactions, and (B) subject in all respects to the provisions and limitations of this Agreement. Each Buyer shall fund its Pro Rata share of such additional Purchase Price as if the remission of such Margin Excess were the initiation of a Transaction hereunder.
6.2.    Margin Call Deadline. If the Agent delivers a Margin Call to the Seller at or before 11:00 a.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on any Business Day, then the Seller shall transfer cash and/or Additional Purchased Loans as provided in Section 6.1 on the same Business Day. If the Agent delivers a Margin Call to the Seller after 11:00 a.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on any Business Day, then the Seller shall transfer cash and/or Additional Purchased Loans by no later than 11:00 a.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the next following Business Day.

Detroit\1205907\17\



6.3.    Application of Cash. Any cash transferred to the Agent (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers) pursuant to this Section 6 shall be applied by the Buyers on receipt from the Agent which shall occur on the date received from the Seller or the next Business Day if received after 1:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time).
6.4.    Increased Cost. If any Change in Law:
(a)    shall subject such Buyer (or its LIBOR Lending Office) to any tax, duty or other charge with respect to this Agreement or any Transaction or change the basis of taxation of payments to the Buyer in respect thereof (except for changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of Buyer or its LIBOR Lending Office imposed by the jurisdiction in which Buyer's principal executive office or LIBOR Lending Office is located);
(b)    shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve (including, without limitation, any imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System), special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by Buyer (or its LIBOR Lending Office), or shall impose on Buyer (or its LIBOR Lending Office) or the foreign exchange and interbank markets any other condition affecting this Agreement or the making or maintaining of Transactions hereunder; or
(c)    shall impose on the Buyer any other condition:
and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Buyer, by an amount which the Buyer deems to be material, of entering, continuing or maintaining any Transaction or to reduce any amount due or owing hereunder in respect thereof, then in any such case, the Seller shall promptly pay the Agent (for distribution to such Buyer) such additional amount or amounts as calculated by the Buyer in good faith as will compensate the Buyer for such increased cost or reduced amount. A certificate of a Buyer, prepared in good faith and in reasonable detail by such Buyer and submitted to the Seller and the Agent, setting forth the basis for determining such additional amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Buyer shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
6.5    Capital Adequacy.
If any Change in Law affects or would affect the amount of capital or liquidity required or expected to be maintained by such Buyer (or any corporation controlling such Buyer), and such Buyer determines that the amount of such capital is increased by or based upon the existence of any its obligations hereunder or the maintaining of any Transactions, and such increase has the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Buyer's (or such controlling corporation's) capital as a consequence of such obligations or the maintaining of such Transactions to a level below that which such Buyer (or such controlling corporation) could have achieved but for such circumstances (taking into consideration its policies with respect to capital adequacy), then the Seller shall pay to such Buyer, within fifteen (15) days of the Seller's receipt of written notice from such Buyer demanding such compensation, additional amounts as are sufficient to compensate such Buyer (or such controlling corporation) for any increase in the amount of capital and reduced rate of return which Buyer reasonably determines to be allocable to the existence of any obligations of the Buyer hereunder or to maintaining any Transactions hereunder. A certificate of a Buyer as to the amount

42
Detroit\1205907\17\



of such compensation, prepared in good faith and in reasonable detail by the Buyer and submitted to the Seller, shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes absent manifest error.
6.6.     Market Valuations for Purchase Values. In the discretion of the Agent or Required Buyers if it or they reasonably determine that market conditions warrant (except that the Agent shall have no obligation to make such determination more frequently than once per day), the Agent may (a) notify Custodian that Agent desires to re-calculate the Purchase Values of all or a portion of the Purchased Loans using the Market Values of such Purchased Loans, which notice shall include the Market Values determined by Agent for such Purchased Loans, and (b) obtain from Custodian an updated Purchased Loan Collateral Activity Summary Report taking into account such Market Values.
6.7.    Provisions Relating to Daily Adjusting LIBOR Rate.
(a)    If the Agent or the Required Buyers (after consultation with the Agent) shall determine in good faith that, (a) it is or they are unable to determine or ascertain the Daily Adjusting LIBOR Rate, or (b) by reason of circumstances affecting the foreign exchange and interbank markets generally, deposits in eurodollars in the applicable amounts or for the relative maturities are not being offered to Agent or such Buyers, or (c) the Daily Adjusting LIBOR Rate will not accurately or fairly cover or reflect the cost of making, maintaining or funding any Transaction based upon the Daily Adjusting LIBOR Rate, then Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to the Seller. Thereafter, until Agent notifies the Seller that such conditions or circumstances no longer exist, the Prime Referenced Rate shall be the applicable Pricing Rate for all Transactions during such period of time, and each Transaction which bears interest at or by reference to the Daily Adjusting LIBOR Rate shall automatically be converted into a Transaction with a Pricing Rate determined by reference to the Prime Referenced Rate.
(b)    If any Change in Law shall make it unlawful or impossible for any of the Buyers (or any of their respective LIBOR Lending Offices) to honor its obligations hereunder to make or maintain any Transaction which bears interest at or by reference to the Daily Adjusting LIBOR Rate, such Buyer shall give notice thereof to the Seller and the Agent. Thereafter, until such Buyer notifies the Seller that such conditions or circumstances no longer exist, the Prime Referenced Rate shall be the applicable Pricing Rate for all Transactions hereunder during such period of time, and if any of the Buyers may not lawfully continue to maintain any existing Transaction with a Pricing Rate determined at or by reference to the Daily Adjusting LIBOR Rate, the applicable Transaction shall immediately be converted to a Transaction with a Pricing Rate determined by reference to the Prime Referenced Rate. For purposes of this Section, a change in law, rule, regulation, interpretation or administration shall include, without limitation, any change made or which becomes effective on the basis of a law, rule, regulation, interpretation or administration presently in force, the effective date of which change is delayed by the terms of such law, rule, regulation, interpretation or administration.

7 Taxes.
7.1.    Payments to be Free of Taxes; Withholding. Any and all payments by the Seller under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Repurchase Documents to which the Seller is a party shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities (including penalties, interest and additions to tax) with respect thereto, whether now or hereafter imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any taxation authority or other Governmental Authority (collectively, “Taxes”), unless required by any Legal Requirement. If the Seller shall be required under any applicable Legal Requirement to deduct or withhold any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable under or in respect of this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents to the Agent (for the account of the Buyers), (a) the Seller shall make all such deductions and withholdings in respect of Taxes, (b) the Seller shall pay the full amount deducted or withheld in respect of Taxes to the relevant taxation authority or other Governmental Authority in accordance with any applicable Legal Requirement and (c) the sum payable by the Seller shall be increased as may be necessary so that after the Seller has made all required deductions and withholdings (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional amounts payable under this Section 7) each Buyer receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made in respect of Non-excluded Taxes. For purposes of this Agreement the term “Non-excluded Taxes” means Taxes other than, in the case of any Person, Taxes that are imposed on its overall net income (and franchise taxes imposed in lieu thereof) by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Person is organized or of its applicable lending office, or any political subdivision thereof.
7.2.    Other Taxes. In addition, the Seller hereby agrees to pay any present or future stamp, recording, documentary, excise, property or value-added taxes, or similar taxes, charges or levies (including any interest or penalties arising in connection therewith) that arise from any payment made under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Repurchase Document or from the execution, delivery or registration of, any performance under, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or any other Repurchase Documents (collectively, “Other Taxes”).
7.3.    Taxes Indemnity. The Seller hereby agrees to indemnify the Buyers and the Agent for, and to hold each of them harmless against, the full amount of Non-excluded Taxes and Other Taxes, and the full amount of Taxes (other than Taxes that are imposed on its overall net income (and franchise taxes imposed in lieu thereof) by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Person is organized or of its applicable lending office, or any political subdivision thereof) of any kind imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 7 imposed on or paid by the Buyers or the Agent and any liability (including penalties, additions to tax, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto. The indemnity by the Seller provided for in this Section 7.3 shall apply and be made whether or not the Non-excluded Taxes or Other Taxes for which indemnification hereunder is sought have been correctly or legally asserted. Amounts payable by the Seller under the indemnity set forth in this Section 7.3 shall be paid within fifteen (15) days from the date on which the Agent or any Buyer makes written demand therefor.


44
Detroit\1205907\17\



7.4.    Receipt. Within thirty (30) days after the date of any payment of Taxes, the Seller (or any Person making such payment on behalf of the Seller) shall furnish to the Agent for each Buyer’s account a certified copy of the original official receipt evidencing payment thereof.
7.5.    Non-Exempt Buyer. For purposes of this Section 7.5, the terms “United States” and “United States person” shall have the meanings specified in Section 7701 of the Internal Revenue Code. Each Buyer (including, for avoidance of doubt, any assignee, successor or participant) that either (x) is not incorporated under the laws of the United States, any State thereof or the District of Columbia or (y) whose name does not include “Incorporated”, “Inc.”, “Corporation”, “Corp.”, “P.C.”, “insurance company” or “assurance company” (a “Non-Exempt Buyer”) shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Agent two originals of each of the following properly completed and duly executed documents:
(a)    in the case of a Non-Exempt Buyer that is not a United States person, (i) a complete and executed (A) U.S. Internal Revenue Form W-8BEN with Part II completed in which the Buyer claims the benefits of a tax treaty with the United States providing for a zero or reduced rate of withholding (or any successor forms thereto), including all appropriate attachments or (B) U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI (or any successor forms thereto) and (ii) if such Non-Exempt Buyer is treated as a corporation for United States federal tax purposes, a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit D (a “Corporation Tax Treatment Certificate”); or
(b)    in the case of an individual, (i) a complete and executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN (or any successor forms thereto) and a Corporation Tax Treatment Certificate or (ii) a complete and executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 (or any successor forms thereto); or
(c)    in the case of a Non-Exempt Buyer that is organized under the laws of the United States, any State thereof, or the District of Columbia, (i) a complete and executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 (or any successor forms thereto), including all appropriate attachments, and (ii) if such Non-Exempt Buyer is treated as a corporation for United States federal tax purposes, a Corporation Tax Treatment Certificate; or
(d)    in the case of a Non-Exempt Buyer that (i) is not organized under the laws of the United States, any State thereof, or the District of Columbia and (ii) is treated as a corporation for U. S. federal income tax purposes, a complete and executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN claiming a zero rate of withholding (or any successor forms thereto) and a Corporation Tax Treatment Certificate; or
(e)    in the case of a Non-Exempt Buyer that (i) is treated for U.S. federal income tax purposes as a partnership or other non-corporate entity, and (ii) is not organized under the laws of the United States, any State thereof, or the District of Columbia, (A)(1) a complete and executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY (or any successor forms thereto) (including all required documents and attachments) and (2) a Corporation Tax Treatment Certificate, and (ii) without duplication, with respect to each of its beneficial owners and the beneficial owners of such beneficial owners looking through chains of owners to

45
Detroit\1205907\17\



individuals or entities that are treated as corporations for U.S. federal income tax purposes (all such owners, “Beneficial Owners”), the documents that would be required by this Section 7.5 with respect to each such Beneficial Owner if such Beneficial Owner were a Buyer, provided that no such documents will be required with respect to a Beneficial Owner to the extent the actual Buyer is determined to be in compliance with the requirements for certification on behalf of its Beneficial Owner as may be provided in applicable U.S. Treasury regulations, or the requirements of this Section 7.5 are otherwise determined to be unnecessary, all such determinations under this Section 7.5 to be made in the sole discretion of the Seller, provided that each such Buyer shall be provided an opportunity to establish such compliance as reasonable; or
(f)    in the case of a Non-Exempt Buyer that is disregarded for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the document that would be required by this Section 7.5 with respect to its Beneficial Owner if such Beneficial Owner were a Buyer; or
(g)    in the case of a Non-Exempt Buyer that (i) is not a United States person and (ii) is acting in the capacity as an “intermediary” (as defined in U.S. Treasury regulations), (A)(1) a U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY (or any successor form thereto) (including all required documents and attachments) and (2) a Corporation Tax Treatment Certificate, and (B) if the intermediary is a “non-qualified intermediary” (as defined in U.S. Treasury regulations), from each person upon whose behalf the “non-qualified intermediary” is acting the documents that would be required by this Section 7.5 with respect to each such person if each such person were a Buyer.
If the forms referred to in this Section 7.5 that are provided by a Buyer at the time such Buyer first becomes a party to this Agreement, a successor to a Buyer or, with respect to a permitted assignment of or a grant of a participation in the interests of a Buyer hereunder, the effective date thereof, indicate a United States interest withholding tax rate in excess of zero, withholding tax at such rate shall be treated as Taxes other than Non-excluded Taxes (“Excluded Taxes”) and shall not qualify as Non-Excluded Taxes unless and until such Buyer provides the appropriate form certifying that a lesser rate applies, whereupon withholding tax at such lesser rate shall be considered Excluded Taxes solely for the periods governed by such form. If, however, on the date a Person becomes an assignee, successor or participant to this Agreement, the Buyer transferor was entitled to indemnification or additional amounts under this Section 7, then the Buyer assignee, successor or participant shall be entitled to indemnification or additional amounts to the extent (and only to the extent), that the Buyer transferor was entitled to such indemnification or additional amounts for Non-excluded Taxes, and the Buyer assignee, successor or participant shall be entitled to additional indemnification or additional amounts for any other or additional Non-excluded Taxes.
7.6.    If Buyer Fails to Provide Form. For any period with respect to which a Buyer required to do so has failed to provide the Seller with the appropriate form, certificate or other document described in Section 7.5 (other than (a) if such failure is due to a change in any applicable Legal Requirement, or in the interpretation or application thereof, occurring after the date on which a form, certificate or other document originally was required to be provided, (b) if such form, certificate or other document otherwise is not required under Section 7.5 or (c) if it is legally inadvisable or otherwise commercially disadvantageous for such Buyer to deliver such

46
Detroit\1205907\17\



form, certificate or other document), such Buyer shall not be entitled to indemnification or additional amounts under Section 7.2 or Section 7.3 with respect to Non-excluded Taxes imposed by the United States by reason of such failure; provided that should a Buyer become subject to Non-excluded Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form, certificate or other document required hereunder, the Seller shall take such steps as such Buyer shall reasonably request, to assist such Buyer in recovering such Non-excluded Taxes.
7.7.    Refunds. If the Agent or any Buyer, in its sole opinion, determines that it has finally and irrevocably received or been granted a refund in respect of any Taxes paid as to which indemnification has been paid by the Seller pursuant to this Section, it shall promptly remit such refund, net of all reasonable out of pocket costs and expenses, to the Seller; provided, that the Seller agrees to promptly return any such refund to the Agent or such Buyer, as applicable, if such person is required to repay such refund to the relevant taxing authority. Nothing contained herein shall impose an obligation on the Agent or any Buyer to apply for any such refund.
7.8.    Survival. Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Seller hereunder, the agreements and obligations of the Seller contained in this Section 7 shall survive the termination of this Agreement. Nothing contained in this Section 7 shall require the Buyer to make available any of its tax returns or any other information that it deems to be confidential or proprietary.
8 Income and Escrow Payments; Control.
8.1.    Income and Escrow Payments. Notwithstanding that the Buyers, the Agent and the Seller intend that the Transactions be sales to the Buyers of the Purchased Loans, where a particular Transaction’s term extends over an Income payment date on the Purchased Loans subject to that Transaction, all payments and distributions, whether in cash or in kind, made on or with respect to the Purchased Loans shall be paid directly to the Seller or its designee by the relevant Customer, and the Agent (and the Buyers) shall have no obligation to collect or apply any Income to prevent or reduce any Margin Deficit, unless the Seller (a) arranges for such Income to be paid to the Agent (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers), (b) requests that the Agent apply such Income when received against the Seller’s Margin Deficit(s) and (c) concurrently transfers to the Agent either (i) cash or (ii) at the Agent’s option and with the Agent’s written approval, Additional Purchased Loans, sufficient to eliminate such Margin Deficit. Amounts paid to the Seller by the relevant Customer shall be deposited by the Seller into the Income Account within two (2) Business Days of receipt by the Seller and, as to amounts so paid to the Seller for escrow payments, into the Escrow Account. The Income Account and the Escrow Account shall be maintained by the Seller with Comerica Bank and shall be subject to the control of the Agent. The Income Account and Escrow Account may be interest bearing accounts if allowed or required by applicable law. At all times, other than during the existence of an Event of Default, the Seller may have full use of all Income and amounts on deposit in the Income Account, subject to the provisions of Section 8.2.
8.2.    Income and Escrow Accounts. Other than during the existence of an Event of Default and so long as the Seller is also the Servicer, the Seller shall make payments from the Escrow Account of all appropriate amounts payable with respect to each Purchased Loan for

47
Detroit\1205907\17\



taxes, insurance and other purposes for which the funds are paid into the Escrow Account. Subject to Section 8.3, amounts on deposit in the Income Account shall be used by the Seller to pay its fees as Servicer while it serves in such capacity, and may be used to pay to the Agent amounts due under this Agreement for Margin Deficit or Price Differential and for any other lawful purpose.
8.3.    Income and Escrow Accounts after Default. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, the Seller shall have no right to direct withdrawal or application of funds in the Income Account and the Escrow Account unless authorized to do so in writing by the Agent. The Agent may cause all amounts on deposit in the Income Account to be paid to it or its designee for application as provided in Section 18.4. The Agent or its designee shall direct payments from the Escrow Account for the purposes for which such funds are deposited into the Escrow Account and shall comply with all Legal Requirements applicable to the operation of the Income Account and the Escrow Account, including any Agency guidelines with respect thereto.
9 Facility Fee; Agent’s Fee.
9.1.    Facility Fee. The Seller agrees to pay to the Agent (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers) a facility fee (the “Facility Fee”) on the Maximum Aggregate Commitment at a rate of one hundred twenty-five thousandths of one percent (0.125%) per annum, computed on the actual number of days elapsed using a year of 360 days. The Facility Fee shall be payable in arrears within ten (10) days after the end of each calendar quarter, commencing with the quarter ending September 30, 2012, and on the Termination Date. The calculation by Agent of the Amount of the Facility Fee shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error. Such fee shall be deemed fully earned upon receipt by Agent and shall not be refundable for any reason.
9.2.    Agent’s Fees. The Seller agrees to pay to the Agent the fees set forth in the Fee Letter.
10 Security Interest; License.
10.1.    Intent of the Parties. The parties intend that all Transactions hereunder be sales and purchases (other than for accounting and tax purposes) and not loans; nonetheless, as a security agreement under the UCC and as a security agreement or other arrangement or other credit enhancement related to this Agreement and transactions hereunder as provided for in Section 101(47) (A)(v) of the Bankruptcy Code, the Seller hereby pledges to the Agent for the benefit of the Buyers as security for the performance by the Seller of the Obligations and hereby grants, assigns and pledges to the Agent for the benefit of the Buyers a fully perfected first priority security interest in all of the following, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, wherever located (the “Collateral”):

50
Detroit\1205907\17\



The Seller hereby authorizes the Agent to file any financing or continuation statements under the applicable UCC to perfect or continue such security interest in any and all applicable filing offices. The Seller shall pay all customary fees and expenses associated with perfecting such security interest including the costs of filing financing and continuation statements under the UCC and recording assignments of Mortgages as and when required by the Agent in its reasonable discretion.
10.2.    Remedies. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Agent shall have the following rights and remedies (in addition to the other rights and remedies under in this Agreement or any other Repurchase Document or applicable law):
(h)    all of the rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC (whether or not the UCC applies to the affected Collateral) and the Agent may also, without previous demand or notice except as specified herein or required by applicable law, sell, lease or otherwise dispose of the Collateral, or any part thereof, in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at the Agent’s offices or elsewhere, for cash, on credit or for future delivery, and upon such other terms as the Agent may, in its reasonable discretion, deem commercially reasonable or otherwise as may be permitted by law; collect, receive or take possession of the Collateral or any part thereof, and the Agent and, subject to the terms of this Agreement, each of the Buyers shall have the right at any public sale or sales, and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, at any private sale or sales, to bid (which bid may be, in whole or in part, in the form of cancellation of indebtedness) and become a purchaser of the Collateral or any part thereof free of any right of redemption on the part of the Seller, which right of redemption is hereby expressly waived and released by the Seller to the extent permitted by applicable law. The Seller agrees that, in the event that applicable law requires such notice, the Agent shall not be obligated to give more than ten (10) days prior written notice of the time and place of any public sale or of the time after which any private sale may take place and that such notice shall constitute reasonable notice of such matters. The Agent shall not be obligated to make any sale of Collateral if, in the exercise of its reasonable discretion, it shall determine not to do so, regardless of the fact that notice of sale of Collateral may have been given. On any sale of the Collateral, the Agent is hereby authorized to comply with any limitation or restriction with which compliance is necessary (based on a reasoned opinion of the Agent’s counsel) in order to avoid any violation of applicable law or in order to obtain any required approval of the purchaser or purchasers by any applicable Governmental Authority. The Agent shall apply the proceeds from the sale of the Collateral hereunder against the Indebtedness as set forth in Section 18.4;
(i)    The Agent may cause any or all of the Collateral held by it to be transferred into the name of the Agent or the name or names of the Agent’s nominee or nominees.
(j)    The Agent may exercise any and all rights and remedies of the Seller under or in respect of the Collateral, including, without limitation, any and all rights of the Seller to demand or otherwise require payment of any amount under, or performance of any provision of any of the Collateral.

51
Detroit\1205907\17\



(k)    The Agent may direct any parties liable for any payment under any of the Collateral to make payment of any and all monies due and to become due thereunder directly to the Agent or as the Agent shall direct.
11 Substitution.
11.1.    Seller May Substitute Other Mortgage Loans with Notice to and Approval of Agent. So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and no Margin Deficit exists or occurs as a consequence thereof, the Seller may request to substitute Mortgage Loans for any substantially similar Purchased Loans by giving notice to the Agent and Custodian on or before 12:00 noon (Detroit, Michigan time) on a Business Day, and delivering to the Custodian the Mortgage Loan Transmission File with respect to the Mortgage Loans to be substituted and other documents required to be delivered in connection with any new Transaction. Upon receipt of such request, and an updated Eligible Loans Report from the Custodian that takes into account the requested substitution of Mortgage Loans, the Agent may elect in its sole discretion, by 5:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the Business Day notice is received or by 5:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the next Business Day if notice is given after 12:00 noon (Detroit, Michigan time), to accept such substitution. If such substitution is accepted by the Agent, such substitution shall be made by the Seller’s transfer to the Agent of such other Mortgage Loans on a servicing released basis and the Agent’s transfer to the Seller of the Purchased Loans to be replaced, and after such substitution, the substituted Mortgage Loans shall be deemed to be Purchased Loans. If the Agent elects not to accept such substitution, the Seller shall offer the Agent and the Buyers the right to terminate the related Transaction. If Agent, in its sole discretion, accepts such offer, then the Transaction shall be terminated as if a Disqualifier had occurred with respect to such Transaction in accordance with Section 3.3(b).
11.2.    Payment to Accompany Substitution. If a substitution of Mortgage Loans or termination of a Transaction occur under this Section 11, the Seller shall be obligated to pay to the Agent (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers) by the close of the Business Day on the date of such substitution or termination, as the case may be, an amount equal to the sum of (a) actual cost (including all customary fees, expenses and commissions) to the Agent and the Buyers of (i) entering into replacement Transactions; (ii) entering into or terminating hedge transactions and/or (iii) terminating Transactions or substituting securities in like transactions with third parties in connection with or as a result of such substitution or termination, and (b) to the extent the Agent determines not to enter into replacement Transactions, the loss incurred by the Agent and the Buyers directly arising or resulting from such substitution or termination. The foregoing amounts shall be solely determined and calculated by the Agent and the applicable Buyers in good faith.
12 Payment and Transfer.
12.1.    Immediately Available Funds; Notice to Custodian. All transfers of funds hereunder shall be in immediately available funds. All Mortgage Loans transferred by one party hereto to any other party shall be transferred by notice to the Custodian to the effect that the Custodian is then holding for the benefit of the transferee the related documents and assignment forms delivered to it under the Custody Agreement.

Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, all payments required by this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents to be made to the Agent shall be paid to the Agent by no later than 1:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the day when due (funds received after 1:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) shall be conclusively deemed to have been paid by the Seller on the next following Business Day unless the Agent shall agree otherwise) and without set-off, counterclaim or deduction, in lawful money of the United States of America in immediately available funds as provided in Section 24.4, or at such other place as the Agent shall designate from time to time. Whenever any payment to be made under this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents shall be stated to be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the due date for that payment shall be automatically extended to the next day that is a Business Day, and (if applicable) Price Differential at the applicable rate (determined in accordance with this Agreement) shall continue to accrue during the period of such extension.
12.3.    If Payment Not Made When Due. If and to the extent any payment is not made when due under this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents, the Seller authorizes the Agent and each Buyer (for the Pro Rata account and benefit of all of the Buyers) then or at any time thereafter to charge any amounts so due and unpaid against any or all of the Seller’s accounts with the Agent or any of the Buyers; provided that such right to charge the Seller’s accounts shall not apply to any escrow, trust or other deposit accounts designated as being held by the Seller on behalf of third party owners of the escrowed funds other than Affiliates of the Seller. The Agent and each Buyer agrees to use reasonable efforts to promptly advise the Seller of any charge made pursuant to this Section 12.3, but the failure to do so will not affect the validity or collectability of such charge. Neither the Agent nor any Buyer shall have any obligation to charge any Seller account, merely the right to do so.
12.4.    Payments Valid and Effective. Each payment received by the Agent in accordance with this Agreement is valid and effective to satisfy and discharge the Seller’s liability under the Repurchase Documents to the extent of the payment.
12.5.    Pro Rata Distribution of Payments. The Agent shall distribute all payments of Repurchase Price (whether voluntary or involuntary and from whatever source) received to the Buyers Pro Rata with their respective ownership interests in the Purchased Loans on the next Swing Line Refunding Due Date. The distribution from the Agent to each Buyer shall be made by the Agent’s initiating a federal funds wire transfer by 3:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on such Swing Line Refunding Due Date, in immediately available funds directly to such Buyer or to such account at another financial institution as is designated from time to time by such Buyer in writing.
13 Segregation of Documents Relating to Purchased Loans.
All documents relating to Purchased Loans in the possession of the Seller or its designee (including its agent, or any subservicer) shall be segregated from other documents and securities in its or its designee’s possession and shall be identified as being owned by the Buyers and held by the Agent on behalf of the Buyers (which shall be referenced in the relevant books and records as “Comerica Bank, Agent”) and subject to this Agreement. Segregation may be accomplished by

appropriate identification of ownership on the books and records of the holder of such documents, including MERS, a documents custodian, a financial or securities intermediary, or a clearing corporation. All of the Seller’s interest in the Purchased Loans shall pass to the Buyers on the Purchase Date and nothing in this Agreement shall preclude the Agent and the Buyers, in each case with the Buyers’ consent, from engaging with others in repurchase transactions with the Purchased Loans or otherwise selling, transferring, pledging, or hypothecating the Purchased Loans, but no such transaction shall relieve the Buyers of their obligations to transfer Purchased Loans to the Seller pursuant to Section 2.6 or 18, or of the Agent’s obligation to credit or pay Income to, or apply Income to the obligations of, the Seller pursuant to Section 8.

18.9.    Sale of Purchased Loans.

80
Detroit\1205907\17\



provided by the Seller pursuant to Section 16.4(d). The parties further recognize that it may not be possible to purchase or sell all of the Purchased Loans on a particular Business Day, or in a transaction with the same purchaser, or in the same manner because the market for such Purchased Loans may not be liquid at such time. In view of the nature of the Purchased Loans, the parties agree that liquidation of a Transaction or the underlying Purchased Loans does not require a public purchase or sale and that a good faith private purchase or sale shall be deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner. Accordingly, the Agent may elect the time and manner of liquidating any Purchased Loan and nothing contained herein shall obligate the Agent to liquidate any Purchased Loan on the occurrence of an Event of Default or to liquidate all Purchased Loans in the same manner or on the same Business Day and no such exercise of any right or remedy shall constitute a waiver of any other right or remedy of the Agent or the Buyers.
19 Servicing of the Purchased Loans.
19.1.    Servicing Released Basis. Consistent with the Buyers’ purchase of the Purchased Loans on a servicing-released basis, the Seller shall have no ownership right whatsoever as to any of the Purchased Loans or the servicing rights related thereto, unless and until such Purchased Loans are repurchased by the Seller. Rather, the Seller shall have only servicing responsibilities with respect to the Purchased Loans that are subject to termination in accordance with Section 19.7. The Seller and the Buyers hereby acknowledge and agree that the provisions contained in this Section 19 are intended to be for the benefit of the Buyers and are an essential part of this Agreement, and that the nature and purpose of the purchase and sale obligations and the servicing obligations hereunder are interrelated. The Seller acknowledges that if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Agent for the benefit of the Buyers may, upon written notice to the Seller, without payment of any termination fee or other amount to the Seller, sell any or all of the Purchased Loans on a servicing released basis at the cost and expense of the Seller.
19.2.    Servicing and Subservicing. The Seller hereby agrees, for the benefit of the Buyers, to service or contract with Subservicers to service the Purchased Loans in accordance with this Agreement and Accepted Servicing Practices. The Seller’s fees for its duties as Servicer, until terminated under Section 19.7, shall be twenty-five (25) basis points per annum on the unpaid principal balance of each Purchased Loan, payable from Income in accordance with the provisions of Section 8.2. The Servicer shall, and shall cause each Subservicer to, (a) comply with all applicable Federal, State and local laws and regulations in all material respects, (b) maintain all state and federal licenses necessary for it to perform its servicing responsibilities hereunder and (c) not impair the rights of the Buyers in any Purchased Loans or any payment thereunder. The Agent may terminate the servicing of any Purchased Loan with the then existing Servicer in accordance with Section 19.7. The Seller shall not be entitled to any servicing fee or other compensation in connection with its performance of the servicing responsibilities with respect to the Purchased Loans except to the extent that the Seller is Servicer. Nothing in this Section 19.2 shall be deemed to impair the rights of any Subservicer to fees and other compensation to which it is entitled under the applicable Servicing Agreement.
19.3.    Escrow Payments. The Seller shall cause Servicer and any Subservicers to hold or cause to be held all escrow payments collected by the Seller with respect to any Purchased

81
Detroit\1205907\17\



Loans in trust accounts and shall apply the same for the purposes for which such funds were collected.
19.4.    Escrow and Income after Event of Default. After the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, (a) all funds received on or in connection with a Purchased Loan shall be received and held by the Seller, Servicer and each Subservicer in trust for the benefit of the Agent on behalf of the Buyers as owner of the Purchased Loans, and (b) neither the Seller nor Servicer shall be deemed to have any rights or ownership interest in such funds prior to their being remitted to the Agent on behalf of the Buyers.
19.5.    Servicing Records. The Seller agrees that the Agent, on behalf of the Buyers, is the owner of all servicing records, including but not limited to any and all servicing agreements, files, documents, records, data bases, computer tapes, copies of computer tapes, proof of insurance or guaranty coverage, insurance or guaranty policies, appraisals, other closing documentation, payment history records, and any other records relating to or evidencing the servicing of Purchased Loans (the “Servicing Records”). The Servicing Records are and shall be held in trust by the Seller, Servicer and each Subservicer for the benefit of the Agent as the owner thereof on behalf of the Buyers. Upon notice from the Agent after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Seller will cause Servicer and each Subservicer to (a) designate the Buyers as the owner of each Purchased Loan in its collateral tracking system, (b) segregate such Servicing Records from any and all servicing agreements, 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 of assets that are not Purchased Loans, (c) safeguard such Servicing Records and (d) deliver them promptly to the Agent or its designee (including the Custodian) at the Agent’s request.
19.6.    Subservicer Instruction Letter. The Seller shall, prior to the initial Purchase Date of Purchased Loans serviced by any Subservicer, provide to the Buyers a Subservicer Instruction Letter addressed to and agreed to by such Subservicer of the related Purchased Loans.
19.7.    Termination of Servicing. At any time during the existence of a Default or an Event of Default in the Agent’s sole discretion, the Agent may, and at the direction of the Required Buyers, shall (a) terminate the Seller’s rights as Servicer, and any Subservicer’s rights, if any, and obligations with respect to servicing of the Purchased Loans without payment of any penalty or termination fee (i) immediately with respect to the Seller and (ii) with respect to any Servicer (other than the Seller) or Subservicer, as promptly as possible subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable Servicing Agreement and Subservicer Instruction Letter; provided that any such termination shall be deemed to have occurred automatically upon the occurrence of an Event of Default set forth in Section 18.1(b), (b) require the Seller to enforce its rights and remedies, as agent for and for the benefit of the Buyers in accordance with the Agent’s commercially reasonable instructions, with respect to any Purchased Loans under any Servicing Agreement, and (c) succeed to the rights and remedies of the Seller with respect to any Purchased Loans under any Servicing Agreement to the extent permitted by, and subject to, the terms of such Servicing Agreement (but not the obligations or liabilities of the Seller incurred prior to the date of such succession) and related Subservicer Instruction Letter. Upon any such termination, the Seller

82
Detroit\1205907\17\



shall, and shall cause each Subservicer to, (A) perform the servicing responsibilities with respect to the Purchased Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement until the transfer of servicing responsibilities is effectuated and (B) cooperate, at the Seller’s expense, in transferring such servicing responsibilities with respect to the Purchased Loans to a successor Servicer appointed by the Agent in its sole discretion. Upon termination of the Seller as Servicer and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Seller shall, in the manner and at such times as the successor servicer or the Agent shall request, (1) promptly transfer all data in the Servicing Records relating to the Purchased Loans to the successor servicer in such electronic format as the successor servicer may reasonably request, (2) promptly transfer to the successor servicer, the Agent or its designee, all other files, records correspondence and documents relating to the Purchased Loans and (3) use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate and coordinate with the successor servicer and the Agent to comply with any applicable so-called “goodbye” letter requirements or other applicable requirements of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act or other applicable legal or regulatory requirement associated with the transfer of the servicing of the Purchased Loans. Servicer acknowledges and agrees that if it fails to cooperate with the Agent or any successor servicer in effecting the termination of the Seller as Servicer of any Purchased Loan or the transfer of all authority to service such Purchased Loan to such successor servicer in accordance with the terms hereof, the Agent and the Buyers will be irreparably harmed and entitled to injunctive relief.
19.8.    Notice from Seller. If the Seller should discover that, for any reason whatsoever, any entity responsible to the Seller by contract for managing or servicing any Purchased Loan has failed to perform in any material respects the Seller’s obligations under the Repurchase Documents or any of the material obligations of such entities with respect to the Purchased Loans, the Seller shall promptly notify the Agent.
19.9.    Seller Remains Liable. Notwithstanding any Servicing Agreement or the provisions of this Agreement relating to agreements or arrangements between the Seller and a Subservicer or reference to actions taken through a Subservicer or otherwise, and unless the Agent has terminated the Seller’s rights pursuant to Section 19.7, the Seller shall remain obligated and primarily liable to the Buyers for servicing and administering of the Purchased Loans in accordance with the provisions hereof without diminution of such obligation or liability by virtue of such Servicing Agreements or arrangements or by virtue of indemnification from a Subservicer and to the same extent and under the same terms and conditions as if the Seller alone were servicing and administering the Purchased Loans. All actions of each Subservicer performed pursuant to the related Servicing Agreement shall be performed as an agent of the Seller with the same force and effect as if performed directly by the Seller and the Buyers shall have no obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to any Subservicer including no obligation, duty or liability of the Buyers to pay any Subservicer’s fees and expenses, provided, however, that each Subservicer may retain any amounts collected by it that it is entitled to retain pursuant to the applicable Servicing Agreement or Subservicer Instruction Letter. The Seller shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with each Subservicer for indemnification of the Seller by the Subservicer and nothing contained in this Repurchase Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification.
19.10.    Backup Servicer. The Agent shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to appoint

83
Detroit\1205907\17\



a Backup Servicer that will (a) serve as a backup servicer of the Purchased Loans until such time as the Agent shall appoint a successor servicer of the Purchased Loans and (b) become the successor servicer of the Purchased Loans at the Agent’s option. In connection with the appointment of a Backup Servicer as provided in the preceding sentence, the Agent may make such arrangements for the compensation of the Backup Servicer out of Income on the Mortgage Loans or otherwise as the Agent and such Backup Servicer shall agree. The Seller shall provide Backup Servicer with such data, files and information, in form, format and content as the Backup Servicer may request, in order to permit the Backup Servicer to service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices; all such data, files and information shall be updated by the Seller on a monthly basis as required by the Backup Servicer.
19.11.    Successor Servicer. If the Backup Servicer or any other Person is appointed by the Agent to act as a successor servicer of the Purchased Loans pursuant to the preceding section, the Seller (in its capacity as Servicer hereunder) shall, and shall cause each Subservicer to, subject to such Subservicer’s rights under any applicable Servicing Agreement, and Subservicer Instruction Letter, discharge its servicing duties and responsibilities during the period from the date it acquires knowledge of such transfer of servicing until the effective date thereof with the same degree of diligence and prudence that it is obligated to exercise under this Agreement, and shall take no action whatsoever that might impair or prejudice the rights or financial condition of the successor Servicer. Within five (5) Business Days of the appointment of a successor Servicer of the Purchased Loans, the Seller shall, and shall cause each Subservicer to, prepare, execute and deliver to such successor Servicer any and all documents and other instruments, place in such successor’s possession all Servicing Records, and do or cause to be done all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the transfer of servicing to the successor Servicer, including but not limited to the transfer and endorsement of the Mortgage Notes and related documents, and the preparation and recordation of assignments of Mortgage. The Seller shall (and shall cause each Subservicer to) cooperate with the Agent and the successor Servicer in effecting the transfer of servicing responsibilities to the Backup Servicer, including execution and delivery of servicing transfer notices to Mortgagors, MERS (if applicable), taxing authorities and insurance companies, the transfer to the Backup Servicer or successor Servicer for administration by it of all Income with respect to the Purchased Loans that shall at the time be held or received by the Seller or any Subservicer. The Seller shall deliver immediately to the successor Servicer all Purchased Loan documents and related documents and statements held by it or any Subservicer hereunder and the Seller shall account for all funds and shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things as may reasonably be required to more fully and definitively vest in the successor Servicer all such rights, powers, duties, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities of the Seller as servicer of the Purchased Loans.

The Seller shall pay, and indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Agent, the Buyers and any of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, advisors and Affiliates (collectively “Indemnified Parties” and each an “Indemnified Party”) from and against, the “Indemnified Liabilities”, which means any and all claims, liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, judgments, suits, disbursements and reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and disbursements of in-house or outside counsel) of any kind whatsoever that may be imposed upon, incurred by or asserted against any of the Indemnified Parties in any way relating to or arising out of any of the Repurchase Documents or any of the transactions contemplated thereby or the use of proceeds or proposed use of proceeds thereof, including, but not limited to, (a) Seller’s failure to comply with, or breach of, any provision of any of the Repurchase Documents, or (b) the failure of Seller, any Indemnified Party or any Purchased Loan to comply with, observe or perform any Legal Requirement with respect to any Purchased Loan; provided, however, that to the extent, if any, that any Indemnified Liabilities are caused by any Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct, the indemnity payable to that Indemnified Party shall be equitably and proportionately reduced, although (i) to the full extent permitted under applicable law, such indemnity shall not be reduced on account of such claims, liabilities, etc. to any extent (x) owed, in whole or in part, under any claim or theory of strict liability, or (y) caused or contributed to by any Indemnified Party’s sole

or concurrent ordinary negligence that does not amount to gross negligence or willful misconduct, it being the Seller’s intention to hereby indemnify the Indemnified Parties against their own strict liability and their own sole or concurrent ordinary negligence, and (ii) such gross negligence and willful misconduct exception to the foregoing indemnity shall, in the case of any failure under paragraph (b) above, only be applicable to a failure which first occurs subsequent to termination by Agent of Seller’s rights as Servicer under Section 19.7 hereof.

The Buyers, the Agent and the Seller acknowledge that, and have entered into this Agreement and will enter into each Transaction hereunder in consideration of and in reliance upon the fact that, all Transactions hereunder constitute a single business and contractual relationship and have been made in consideration of each other. Accordingly, each of the Agent, the Buyers and the Seller agrees (a) to perform all of its obligations in respect of each Transaction hereunder, and that a default in the performance of any such obligations shall constitute a default by it in respect of all Transactions hereunder, (b) that each of them shall be entitled to set off claims and apply property held by them in respect of any Transaction against obligations owing to them in respect of any other Transactions hereunder and (c) that payments, deliveries and other transfers made by any of them in respect of any Transaction shall be deemed to have been made in consideration of payments, deliveries and other transfers in respect of any other Transactions hereunder, and the obligations to make any such payments, deliveries and other transfers may be applied against each other and netted.
22 Relationships among the Agent and the Buyers.
22.1.    Appointment of Agent. Each Buyer irrevocably appoints and authorizes the Agent to act on behalf of such Buyer or holder under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents and to exercise such powers hereunder and thereunder as are specifically delegated to Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as may be reasonably incidental thereto, including without limitation the power to execute or authorize the execution of financing or similar statements or notices, and other documents. In performing its functions and duties under this Agreement, the Agent shall act solely as agent of the Buyers and does not assume and shall not be deemed to have assumed any obligation towards or relationship of agency or trust with or for the Seller or any other Person.
22.2.    Scope of Agent’s Duties.
(h)    The Agent shall have no duties or responsibilities except those expressly set forth herein, and shall not, by reason of this Agreement or otherwise, have a fiduciary relationship with any Buyer (and no implied covenants or other obligations shall be read into this Agreement against the Agent). None of Agent, its Affiliates nor any of their respective directors, officers, employees or agents shall be liable to any Buyer for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them under this Agreement or any document executed pursuant hereto, or in connection herewith or therewith with the consent or at the request of the Required Buyers (or all of the Buyers for those acts requiring consent of all of the Buyers) (except for its or their own willful misconduct or gross negligence), nor be responsible for or have any duties to ascertain, inquire into or verify (a) any recitals or

86
Detroit\1205907\17\



warranties made by the Seller or any Affiliate of the Seller, or any officer thereof contained herein or therein, (b) the effectiveness, enforceability, validity or due execution of this Agreement or any document executed pursuant hereto or any security thereunder, (c) the performance by the Seller of its obligations hereunder or thereunder, or (d) the satisfaction of any condition hereunder or thereunder, including without limitation in connection with the making of any Transaction. The Agent and its Affiliates shall be entitled to rely upon any certificate, notice, document or other communication (including any cable, telegraph, telex, facsimile transmission or oral communication) believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been sent or given by or on behalf of a proper person. The Agent may employ agents and may consult with legal counsel, independent public accountants and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable to the Buyers (except as to money or property received by them or their authorized agents), for the negligence or misconduct of any such agent selected by it with reasonable care or for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts.
(i)    Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, whenever the Agent is authorized and empowered hereunder on behalf of the Buyers to give any approval or consent, or to make any request, or to take any other action on behalf of the Buyers (including without limitation the exercise of any right or remedy hereunder or under the other Repurchase Documents), the Agent shall be required to give such approval or consent, or to make such request or to take such other action only when so requested in writing by the Required Buyers or the Buyers, as applicable hereunder. Action that may be taken by the Required Buyers, any other specified Percentage of the Buyers or all of the Buyers, as the case may be (as provided for hereunder) may be taken (i) pursuant to a vote of the requisite percentages of the Buyers as required hereunder at a meeting (which may be held by telephone conference call), provided that Agent exercises good faith, diligent efforts to give all of the Buyers reasonable advance notice of the meeting, or (ii) pursuant to the written consent of the requisite percentages of the Buyers as required hereunder, provided that all of the Buyers are given reasonable advance notice of the requests for such consent.
(j)    Except as otherwise expressly provided under this Agreement or in any of the other Repurchase Documents and subject to the terms hereof, Agent will take such action, assert such rights and pursue such remedies under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents as the Required Buyers or all of the Buyers, as the case may be (as provided for hereunder), shall direct; provided, however, that the Agent shall not be required to act or omit to act if, in the reasonable judgment of the Agent, such action or omission may expose the Agent to personal liability for which Agent has not been satisfactorily indemnified hereunder or is contrary to this Agreement, any of the Repurchase Documents or applicable law. Except as expressly provided above or elsewhere in this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents, no Buyer (other than the Agent, acting in its capacity as agent) shall be entitled to take any enforcement action of any kind under this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents.
22.3.    Limitation on Duty to Disclose. Except as expressly set forth herein, the Agent shall not have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any

information relating to the Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the bank serving as Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.
22.4.    Authority of Agent to Enforce this Agreement. Each Buyer, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, grants the Agent full power and authority as attorney-in-fact to institute and maintain actions, suits or proceedings for the collection and enforcement of any Indebtedness outstanding under this Agreement or any other Repurchase Document and to file such proofs of debt or other documents as may be necessary to have the claims of the Buyers allowed in any proceeding relative to the Seller, or its creditors or affecting its properties, and to take such other actions which Agent considers to be necessary or desirable for the protection, collection and enforcement of this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents.
22.5.    Agent in its Individual Capacity. Comerica Bank and its Affiliates, successors and assigns shall each have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Buyer and may exercise or refrain from exercising the same as though such Buyer were not the Agent. Comerica Bank and its Affiliates may (without having to account therefor to any Buyer) accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust, financial advisory or other business with the Credit Parties as if such Buyer were not acting as the Agent hereunder, and may accept fees and other consideration therefor without having to account for the same to the Buyers.
22.6.    Actions Requiring All Buyers’ Consent. No amendment or waiver of, or any action with respect to, any provision of this Agreement or any of the Repurchase Documents shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing signed by all the Buyers with respect to any amendment or waiver or any action that:
(a)    Increases the Maximum Aggregate Commitment or increases any Buyer’s Commitment (it being understood that, for the purposes of this Section 22.6(a), the Buyers’ execution of this Agreement evidences such Buyers’ consent to increasing the Maximum Aggregate Commitment and Buyer’s Commitment in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.6 hereof).
(b)    Agrees to any reduction in any Pricing Rate, Repurchase Price or fee provisions of this Agreement, excluding the provisions relating to the Agent’s Fee and other fees owing to the Agent only.

In the event of any conflict between the provisions of this Section 22.6 and any other provisions of this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents, this Section 22.6 shall govern.
22.7.    Actions Requiring Required Buyers’ Consent. All amendments hereto, waivers or actions taken hereunder that are not described in Section 6 and Section 22.8 require the written consent or ratification of the Required Buyers except for actions that are specifically reserved to the Agent under Sections 6.1 and 6.6 or elsewhere in this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents; provided that no amendments, waivers or actions taken hereunder that relate to the rights or obligations of the Agent shall be effective without the prior written consent of the Agent. The Agent will, at the direction of the Required Buyers, take any enforcement action or exercise any remedies under this Agreement and the Repurchase Documents that arise after the occurrence of an Event of Default.
22.8.     Agent’s Discretionary Actions. Subject to the limitations of Sections 22.6 and 22.7, in its capacity as Agent and without seeking or obtaining the consent of any of the other Buyers (although it may elect to obtain such consent before acting it if deems that desirable), the Agent may:
(a)    With respect to Purchased Loans having an aggregate Purchase Value of not more than the Discretionary Loan Sublimit at any time, waive the effects of one or more of the sublimits set forth in Section 4.2(b) or Section 4.2(c), one or more Disqualifiers for Purchased Loans, one or more of the representations or warranties concerning Purchased Loans under Section 15.3, or any other requirements for Purchased Loans set forth in this Agreement;

(d)    do or perform any act or thing that, in the Agent’s reasonable judgment, is necessary or appropriate to enable the Agent to properly discharge and perform its duties under this Agreement, the Custody Agreement or the MBS Custodial Agreement or that in its reasonable judgment is necessary or appropriate to preserve or protect the validity, integrity or enforceability of the Purchased Loans and/or the Repurchase Documents, the Buyers’ Pro Rata undivided ownership interests in and to the Purchased Loans, the Lien created by this Agreement and its priority, or any of the Central Elements in respect of the Seller or any of its Subsidiaries, or to preserve and protect the interest of the Buyers in any of the foregoing.
22.9.    Buyers’ Cooperation. The Buyers agree to cooperate among themselves and with the Agent and from time to time upon the Agent’s request, to execute and deliver such papers as may be reasonably necessary to enable the Agent, in its capacity as Agent, to effectively administer this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents, the Purchased Loans and each Buyer’s Pro Rata undivided ownership interest in the Purchased Loans in the manner contemplated by this Agreement.
22.10.    Buyers’ Sharing Arrangement.
(d)    Each of the Buyers agrees that if it should receive any amount (whether by voluntary payment, realization upon security, the exercise of the right of set-off, or otherwise) that is applicable to the payment of Repurchase Price, Margin Deficit, Price Differential or any fees, that with respect to the related sum or sums received (or receivable) by the other Buyers is in greater proportion than that Buyer’s Pro Rata ownership of the Purchased Loans (after taking into account any waiver or adjustments in the Price Differential or fee owing to such Buyer in accordance with Sections 5.4 and 36 of this Agreement), then such Buyer receiving such excess amount shall purchase from the other Buyers a participation interest in the Purchased Loans in such amount as shall result in Pro Rata participation and ownership by all of the Buyers in such excess amount; provided that if all or any portion of such excess amount is thereafter recovered from such Buyer, such purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery; and provided further that the provisions of this Section 22.10 shall not apply to any fees that the Agent may be entitled to from time to time or to any fees that the Custodian or any successor custodian might be paid pursuant to the Custody Agreement.
(e)    To the extent that the Seller fails to pay any amount required to be paid to the Agent under Section 20, each Buyer severally agrees to pay to the Agent such Buyer's Funding Share (determined as of the time that the unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided, that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified payment, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Agent in its capacity as such.

Detroit\1205907\17\



22.11.    Buyers’ Acknowledgment.
(a)    Each Buyer other than Comerica Bank hereby acknowledges that Comerica Bank has made no representations or warranties with respect to any Purchased Loan other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement and that Comerica Bank shall have no responsibility (in its capacity as a Buyer, the Agent, or any other capacity or role) for:
(i)    the marketability or collectability of the Purchased Loans;
(ii)    the genuineness, validity, likelihood of performance as and when due or enforceability of any Investor Commitment or the solvency or performance record of any Approved Investor;
(iii)    the validity, enforceability or any legal effect of any of the Repurchase Documents, any Loan Papers or any insurance, bond or similar device purportedly protecting any obligation to the Buyers or any Purchased Loans; or
(iv)    the financial condition of the Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates, the status, health or viability of any industry in which any of them is involved, the prospects for repurchase of the Purchased Loans, the genuineness, validity or enforceability of any warehousing facility or repurchase agreement between the Seller and any other lender or repurchase agreement counterparty, the value of any Purchased Loans, the effectiveness of any of the provisions of the Repurchase Documents (including the financial covenants, tests and hedging requirements) or any aspect of their implementation or administration at any time to reduce or control risks of any type, to produce returns, profits, yields or spreads or to reduce or control losses or the accuracy of any information supplied by or to be supplied in connection with any of the Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates, or otherwise with respect to this Agreement, any Purchased Loans or any source of equity or other financing for any of the Seller, any of its Affiliates or any other warehouse lender or repurchase agreement counterparty.
(b)    Each Buyer acknowledges that it has, independently of Agent and each other Buyer and based on the financial statements of Seller and such other documents, information and investigations as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit decision to extend credit hereunder from time to time. Each Buyer also acknowledges that it will, independently of Agent and each other Buyer and based on such other documents, information and investigations as it shall deem appropriate at any time, continue to make its own credit decisions as to exercising or not exercising from time to time any rights and privileges available to it under this Agreement, any Repurchase Document or any other document executed pursuant hereto.
22.12.     Agent Market Value Determinations. The parties hereto agree and acknowledge that, in determining the Market Value of the Purchased Loans, the Agent (a) shall determine Market Value as a third party service provider, in accordance with standards customarily applicable in the financial industry to third party service providers providing values on

91
Detroit\1205907\17\



comparable assets to be used in connection with the financing of such assets, and (b) shall not be obligated to do that same or similar amount of work or analysis as if it were valuing its own assets, or as if it were valuing such assets for the purchase or sale thereof by it or any other party.  The parties hereto agree and acknowledge that any asset valuation information produced by the Agent is intended to be and should be used solely for the limited uses specified in this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents, and is not intended to be and should not be used by any Person for any other purpose.  The parties hereto further agree and acknowledge that the Agent may elect to determine the Market Value for any Purchased Loan by determining the market bid price for a portfolio containing all Purchased Loans and allocating such portfolio market bid price among each individual Purchased Loan.
22.13.     Agent’s Duty of Care, Express Negligence Waiver and Release. At all times until all Purchased Loans have all been repurchased by the Seller and the Buyers have no further commitments or other obligations under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents, the Agent shall exercise the same degree of care in handling the Purchased Loans as Comerica Bank exercises with respect to loans that are held solely by Comerica Bank for its own account, and the Agent, in its capacity as Agent shall have no responsibility to the Buyers other than to exercise such standard of care and, in any event, Comerica Bank shall have no liability with respect to any other Buyer’s Pro Rata interest in the Purchased Loans except for Comerica Bank’s own fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct. Except in the case of its own fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct, neither the Agent, any Buyer, nor any of their officers, directors, employees, attorneys or agents shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them under this Agreement, the Custody Agreement, the MBS Custodial Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents reasonably believed by it or them to be within the discretion or power conferred upon it or them by the Repurchase Documents or be responsible for consequences of any error of judgment, the Buyers expressly intending to hereby waive and release all present and future claims and rights against the Agent (a) owed, in whole or in part, under any claim or theory of strict liability or (b) for damages or injuries caused or contributed to by any Indemnified Party’s sole or concurrent ordinary negligence that does not amount to gross negligence or willful misconduct. Except as otherwise specifically and expressly set forth in this Agreement, the Agent shall not be responsible in any manner to anyone for the effectiveness, enforceability, genuineness, validity or due execution of this Agreement, any supplement, amendment or restatement of it or of any other Repurchase Documents or for any representation, warranty, document, certificate, report or statement made or furnished in, under or in connection with this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents or be under any obligation to anyone to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or observation of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement or of the other Repurchase Documents on the part of the Seller or anyone else. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing provisions of this Section 22.13, the Agent, in its capacity as Agent, may seek and rely upon the advice of legal counsel in taking or refraining to take any action under any of the Repurchase Documents or otherwise in respect of any Purchased Loans, this Agreement and its parties, and shall be fully protected in relying upon such advice.
22.14.    Calculations of Shares of Principal and Other Sums. Except as provided to the contrary in Section 6.4 (“Increased Cost”), Section 6.5 (“Capital Adequacy”), Section 7.1

92
Detroit\1205907\17\



(“Payments to be free of Taxes; Withholding”), Section 7.3 (“Taxes Indemnity”), Section 9.2 (“Agent’s Fee”), and Section 20 (“Payment of Expenses; Indemnity”), Comerica Bank’s and each other Buyer’s respective shares of Repurchase Prices and other sums received by the Agent on account of the Purchased Loans or with respect to them shall be calculated on the basis of each Buyer’s (including Comerica Bank’s) respective Pro Rata ownership interests in the Purchased Loans from time to time.
22.15.    Successor Agent. Agent may resign as such at any time upon at least thirty (30) days prior notice to the Seller and each of the Buyers. If Agent at any time shall resign or if the office of Agent shall become vacant for any other reason, Required Buyers shall, by written instrument, appoint successor agent(s) (“Successor Agent”) satisfactory to such Required Buyers and, so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, approved by the Seller (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Such Successor Agent shall thereupon become the Agent hereunder, as applicable, and Agent shall deliver or cause to be delivered to any successor agent such documents of transfer and assignment as such Successor Agent may reasonably request. If a Successor Agent is not so appointed or does not accept such appointment before the resigning Agent’s resignation becomes effective, the resigning Agent may appoint a temporary successor to act until such appointment by the Required Buyers and, if applicable, the Seller, is made and accepted, or if no such temporary successor is appointed as provided above by the resigning Agent, the Required Buyers shall thereafter perform all of the duties of the resigning Agent hereunder until such appointment by the Required Buyers and, if applicable, the Seller, is made and accepted. Such Successor Agent shall succeed to all of the rights and obligations of the resigning Agent as if originally named. The resigning Agent shall duly assign, transfer and deliver to such Successor Agent all moneys at the time held by the resigning Agent hereunder after deducting therefrom its expenses for which it is entitled to be reimbursed hereunder. Upon such succession of any such Successor Agent, the resigning Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations, in its capacity as Agent hereunder, except for its gross negligence or willful misconduct arising prior to its resignation hereunder, and the provisions of this Article 12 shall continue in effect for the benefit of the resigning Agent in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as Agent.
22.16.    Merger of the Agent. Any Person into which the Agent may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any Person surviving or resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Agent shall be a party or any Person succeeding to the commercial banking business of the Agent shall be the successor Agent without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties.
22.17.    Participation; Assignment by Buyers.
(a)    Assignments. Any Buyer may at any time assign in such Buyer’s rights and obligations hereunder and under the other Repurchase Documents by way of assignment to any Eligible Assignee in accordance with clause (d) of this Section 22.17, (and any other attempted assignment or transfer by any Buyer shall be deemed to be null and void). Each assignment by a Buyer of all or any portion of its rights and obligations hereunder and under the other Repurchase Documents, shall be subject to the following terms and conditions: (i) each such assignment shall be in a minimum amount of the lesser of (x) Five Million Dollars

93
Detroit\1205907\17\



($5,000,000) or such lesser amount as the Agent shall agree and (y) the entire remaining amount of assigning Buyer’s Committed Sum; provided however that, after giving effect to such assignment, in no event shall the entire remaining amount (if any) of assigning Buyer’s Committed Sum be less than $5,000,000; (ii) each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Buyer’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, and (iii) the parties to any assignment shall execute and deliver to Agent an Assignment and Assumption substantially (as determined by Agent) in the form attached hereto as Exhibit E (with appropriate insertions acceptable to Agent), together with a processing and recordation fee in the amount, if any, required as set forth in the Assignment and Assumption. Until the Assignment and Assumption becomes effective in accordance with its terms, and Agent has confirmed that the assignment satisfies the requirements of this Section 22.17, the Seller and the Agent shall be entitled to continue to deal solely and directly with the assigning Buyer in connection with the interest so assigned. From and after the effective date of each Assignment and Assumption that satisfies the requirements of this Section 22.17, the assignee thereunder shall be deemed to be a party to this Agreement, such assignee shall have the rights and obligations of a Buyer under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents (including without limitation the right to receive fees payable hereunder in respect of the period following such assignment) and the assigning Buyer shall relinquish its rights and be released from its obligations under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents. Upon request, the Seller shall execute and deliver to the Agent, documents reasonably necessary to such assignment process;
(b)    Participations. The Seller and the Agent acknowledge that each of the Buyers may at any time and from time to time, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, sell participations in all or any part of such Buyer’s Commitment and Pro Rata ownership share of the Purchased Loans to any Person (other than a natural person or to the Seller or any of the Seller’s Affiliates or Subsidiaries); provided that any participation permitted hereunder shall comply with all applicable laws and shall be subject to a participation agreement that incorporates the following restrictions:
(i)    such Buyer shall remain the holder of its Notes hereunder (if such Notes are issued), notwithstanding any such participation;
(ii)    a participant shall not reassign or transfer, or grant any sub-participations in its participation interest hereunder or any part thereof; and
(iii)    such Buyer shall retain the sole right and responsibility to enforce the obligations of the Seller relating to this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents, including, without limitation, the right to proceed against any Guarantors, or cause the Agent to do so (subject to the terms and conditions hereof), and the right to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement without the consent of the participant (unless such participant is a Buyer Affiliate), except to the extent such amendment, modification or waiver requires the consent of all Buyers under Section 22.6. In those cases (if any) where a Buyer grants rights to any of its participants to approve amendments, modifications

94
Detroit\1205907\17\



or waivers of any Repurchase Documents pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence, such Buyer must include a voting mechanism as to all such approval rights in the relevant participation agreement(s) whereby a readily-determinable fraction of such Buyer’s portion of the Purchased Loans (whether held by such Buyer or participated) shall control the vote for all of such Buyer’s portion of the Purchased Loans; provided that if no such voting mechanism is provided for or is fully and immediately effective, then the vote of such Buyer itself shall be the vote for all of such Buyer’s portion of the Purchased Loans; and provided further that a participant may exercise approval rights over such matters only on an indirect basis, acting through such Buyer, and the Seller, Agent and the other Buyers may continue to deal directly with such Buyer in connection with such Buyer’s rights and duties hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, in the case of any participation granted by any Buyer hereunder, the participant shall not have any rights under this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents against the Agent, any other Buyer or the Seller; provided, however that the participant may have rights against such Buyer in respect of such participation as may be set forth in the applicable participation agreement and all amounts payable by the Seller hereunder shall be determined as if such Buyer had not sold such participation. Each such participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 6.4, 6.5, and 7.1 of this Agreement to the same extent as if it were a Buyer and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to clause (a) of this Section 22.17, provided that no participant shall be entitled to receive any greater amount pursuant to such the provisions of Sections 6.4, 6.5 and 7.1 than the issuing Buyer would have been entitled to receive in respect of the amount of the participation transferred by such issuing Buyer to such participant had no such transfer occurred and each such participant shall also be entitled to the same rights of set-off as though it were a Buyer, provided that such participant agrees to be subject to Section 22.10 hereof as though it were a Buyer.
(c)    Other Permitted Transfers. Any Buyer may at any time pledge, collaterally assign or grant a security interest in any or all of its interests under this Agreement and in the Purchased Loans to any Federal Reserve Bank or to any other Person to secure obligations of such Buyer, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank; provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Buyer from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledge or assignee for such Buyer as a party hereto.
(d)    Register. The Agent shall maintain at its principal office a copy of each Assignment Agreement delivered to it and a register (the “Register”) for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Buyers and the Committed Sum of, and amount owing to, each Buyer. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive evidence, absent manifest error, and the Seller, the Agent, and the Buyers may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as the owner of the Advances recorded therein for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Seller or any Buyer (but only with respect to any entry relating to such Buyer’s Committed Sum) upon reasonable notice to the Agent and a copy of such information shall be provided to any such party on their prior

95
Detroit\1205907\17\



written request. The Agent shall give prompt written notice to the Seller of the making of any entry in the Register or any change in such entry.
(e)    Disclosure of Seller Information. The Seller authorizes each Buyer to disclose to any prospective assignee or participant which has satisfied the requirements hereunder, any and all financial information in such Buyer’s possession concerning the Seller which has been delivered to such Buyer pursuant to this Agreement, provided that each such prospective assignee or participant shall execute a confidentiality agreement consistent with the terms of Section 24.6 hereof or shall otherwise agree to be bound by the terms thereof.
(f)    Nothing in this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents, expressed or implied, is intended to or shall confer on any Person other than the respective parties hereto and thereto and their successors and assignees and participants permitted hereunder and thereunder any benefit or any legal or equitable right, remedy or other claim under this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents.
(g)    If any interest in this Agreement is so transferred to any Person that is organized under the Legal Requirements of any jurisdiction other than the United States of America or any State thereof, the transferor Buyer shall cause such Person, concurrently with the effectiveness of such transfer, to comply with the relevant provisions of Section 7.5.
(h)    The Seller shall not be required to incur any cost or expense incident to any sale to a Person of any interest in the Repurchase Documents and the Purchased Loans pursuant to this Section 22.17 and all such costs and expenses shall be for the account of the Buyer selling its rights in the Purchased Loans to such Person.
22.18.    The Agent and the Buyers are the only Beneficiaries of this Section. Other than the provisions of Section 22.15 and Section 22.17, this Section 22 is intended to bind and benefit only Comerica Bank and the other Buyers, and does not benefit and shall not be enforceable by the Seller or any other Person whatsoever.
22.19.    Knowledge of Default. It is expressly understood and agreed that the Agent shall be entitled to assume that no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, unless the officers of the Agent immediately responsible for matters concerning this Agreement shall have received a written notice from a Buyer or the Seller specifying such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a “notice of default”. Upon receiving such a notice, the Agent shall promptly notify each Buyer of such Default or Event of Default and provide each Buyer with a copy of such notice and shall endeavor to provide such notice to the Buyers within three (3) Business Days (but without any liability whatsoever in the event of its failure to do so). The Agent shall also furnish the Buyer, promptly upon receipt, with copies of all other notices or other information required to be provided by the Seller hereunder.

(a)    Each Buyer acknowledges and agrees that neither such Buyer, nor any of its Affiliates, participants or assignees, may relay on the Agent to carry out such Buyer’s, Affiliate’s, participant’s or assignee’s customer identification program, or other obligations required or imposed under or pursuant to the USA Patriot Act or the regulations thereunder, including the regulations contained in 31 CFR 103.121 (as hereafter amended or replaced, the “CIP Regulations”), or any other Anti-Terrorism Law, including any programs involving any of the following items relating to or in connection with Seller or any of its Subsidiaries, any of their respective Affiliates or agents, the Repurchase Documents or the transactions hereunder: (i) any identify verification procedures, (ii) any record keeping, (iii) any comparisons with government lists, (iv) any customer notices or (v) any other procedures required under the CIP Regulations or such other laws.

22.21.    Other Titles. Any Buyer identified on the facing page or signature page of this Agreement or in any amendment hereto or as designated with consent of the Agent in any assignment agreement as Lead Arranger, Documentation Agent, or any similar titles, shall not have any right, power, obligation, liability, responsibility or duty under this Agreement as a result of such title other than those applicable to all Buyers as such. Without limiting the foregoing, the Buyers so identified shall not have or be deemed to have any fiduciary relationship with any Buyer as a result of such title. Each Buyer acknowledges that it has not relied, and will not rely, on the Buyer so identified in deciding to enter into this Agreement or in taking or not taking action hereunder.
22.22.    Other Agreements. Each Buyer hereby irrevocably appoints, designates and authorizes Agent to enter into any Subordination Agreement, the Custody Agreement, the MBS Custodial Agreement and the Electronic Tracking Agreement, on its behalf and to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of any such agreement.

(d)    Each of the Agent, the Seller, the Buyers, and each of their Affiliates is authorized (but not required) to transmit, post or otherwise make or communicate, in its sole discretion, Electronic Transmissions in connection with any Repurchase Document and the transactions contemplated therein. The Seller hereby acknowledges and agrees that the use of Electronic Transmissions is not necessarily secure and that there are risks associated with such use, including risks of interception, disclosure and abuse and each indicates it assumes and accepts such risks by hereby authorizing the transmission of Electronic Transmissions.
(d)    All uses of an E-System shall be governed by and subject to, in addition to this Section 23, separate terms and conditions posted or referenced in such E-System and related contractual obligations executed by the Agent, the Seller and the Buyers in connection with the use of such E-System.
(e)    All E-Systems and Electronic Transmissions shall be provided “as is” and “as available”. None of the Agent or any of its Affiliates warrants the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of any E-Systems or Electronic Transmission, and each disclaims all liability for errors or omissions therein. No warranty of any kind is made by the Agent or any of its Affiliates in connection with any E Systems or Electronic Transmission, including any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third-party rights or freedom from viruses or other code defects. The Agent, the Seller and the Buyers agree that the Agent has no responsibility for maintaining or providing any equipment, software, services or any testing required in connection with any Electronic Transmission or otherwise required for any E-System.
24 Miscellaneous.
24.1.    Further Assurances. At any time and from time to time, at the sole expense of the Seller, the Seller or the Servicer shall promptly provide such further reasonable assurances, documents and agreements and undertake such actions as the Agent may reasonably request in order to effect the purposes of this Agreement, including the assignment, conveyance and transfer of all right, title and interest of each Purchased Loan from the Seller to the Agent, or to otherwise obtain or preserve the benefits or rights granted under this Agreement. In the event the Seller, Servicer or any subservicer, in the performance of the Servicing Functions shall foreclose any Mortgage for which the Agent and the Buyers have not received the Repurchase Price, all such actions shall be taken in the name of the Agent for the benefit of the Buyers and in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices.
24.2.     Agent as Attorney in Fact. The Agent is hereby appointed the attorney-in-fact of the Seller for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this Agreement and taking any action and executing any instruments or documents that the Agent may deem reasonably necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes hereof, which appointment as attorney-in-fact is irrevocable and coupled with an interest, although the Agent agrees not to exercise its rights under this power of attorney unless, in its opinion or the opinion of its legal counsel, an Event of Default has occurred that has not been cured by the Seller or that the Agent has not declared in writing to have been waived in accordance with Section 22. Without limiting the

100
Detroit\1205907\17\



generality of the foregoing, but subject to Section 18.3, the Agent shall have the right and power during the occurrence and continuation of any Event of Default to receive, endorse, collect and control all checks or instruments made payable to the order of the Seller and all other forms of payment to the Seller that represent any payment on account of the principal of or interest on or proceeds from any of the Purchased Loans and to give full discharge for the same.
24.3.    Wires to Seller. Any amounts to be transferred by the Agent to the Seller hereunder (other than Purchases Prices for the Purchased Loans) shall be sent by journal entry (or wire transfer) in immediately available funds to the Operating Account.
24.4.    Wires to Agent. Except as may be otherwise expressly provided herein, any amounts to be transferred by the Seller to the Agent hereunder shall be sent by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the Repurchase Settlement Account.
24.5.    Receipt; Available Funds. Amounts received after 1:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on any Business Day shall be deemed to have been paid and received on the next succeeding Business Day. All payments and transfers of cash pursuant to this Agreement shall be made (only if the paying and receiving accounts are with the same financial institution) by journal entries, or (otherwise) by wire transfer, of immediately available funds in U.S. dollars.
24.6.    Privacy of Customer Information. The Seller’s Customer Information in the possession of the Agent or the Buyers, other than information independently obtained by the Agent or the Buyers and not derived in any manner from or using information obtained under or in connection with this Agreement, is and shall remain confidential and proprietary information of the Seller. Except in accordance with this Section 24.6, the Agent and the Buyers shall not use any Seller’s Customer Information for any purpose, including the marketing of products or services to, or the solicitation of business from, Customers, or disclose any Seller’s Customer Information to any Person, including any of the Agent’s or the Buyers’ employees, agents or contractors or any third party not affiliated with the Agent or a Buyer. The Agent and the Buyers may use or disclose the Seller’s Customer Information only to the extent necessary (a) for examination and audit of the Agent’s or the Buyers’ respective activities, books and records by their regulatory authorities, (b) to market or sell Purchased Mortgage Loans or to enforce or exercise their rights under any Repurchase Document, (c) to carry out the Agent’s, the Buyers’, the Custodian’s and the Approved MBS Custodian’s express rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents (including providing the Seller’s Customer Information to Approved Investors), or (d) in connection with an assignment or participation as authorized by Section 22 or in connection with any hedging transaction related to the Purchased Loans and for no other purpose; provided that the Agent and the Buyers may also use and disclose the Seller’s Customer Information as expressly permitted by the Seller in writing, to the extent that such express permission is in accordance with the Privacy Requirements. The Agent and the Buyers shall ensure that each Person to which the Agent or a Buyer intends to disclose Seller’s Customer Information, before any such disclosure of information, agrees to keep confidential any such Seller’s Customer Information and to use or disclose such Seller’s Customer Information only to the extent necessary to protect or exercise the Agent’s, the Buyers’, the Custodian’s and the Approved MBS Custodian’s rights and privileges, or to carry out the Agent’s, the Buyers’, the Custodian’s and the Approved MBS Custodian’s express obligations under this Agreement

101
Detroit\1205907\17\



and the other Repurchase Documents (including providing the Seller’s Customer Information to Approved Investors). The Agent agrees to maintain an Information Security Program and to assess, manage and control risks relating to the security and confidentiality of the Seller’s Customer Information pursuant to such program in the same manner as the Agent does in respect of its own customers’ information, and shall implement the standards relating to such risks in the manner set forth in the Interagency Guidelines Establishing Standards for Safeguarding Company Customer Information set forth in 12 CFR Parts 30, 208, 211, 225, 263, 308, 364, 568 and 570. Without limiting the scope of the foregoing sentence, the Agent and the Buyers shall use at least the same physical and other security measures to protect all of the Seller’s Customer Information in their possession or control as each of them uses for its own customers’ confidential and proprietary information.
25 Entire Agreement; Severability.
This Agreement supersedes any existing agreements between the parties containing general terms and conditions for repurchase transactions. This Agreement may not be amended, modified or supplemented except in accordance with the provisions of Section 22 and such amendment, modification or supplement must be set forth in a writing signed by the parties required to do so in accordance with Section 22. 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.
26 Non-assignability; Termination.
26.1.    Limited Assignment. Except with respect to any repurchase transaction, sale, transfer, pledge or hypothecation by the Agent or any Buyer pursuant to Section 22.17, the rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement and under any Transaction shall not be assigned by any party without the prior written consent of the other parties and any such assignment without the prior written consent of the other parties shall be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement and any Transactions shall bind and benefit the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
26.2.    Remedies Exception. Section 26.1 shall not preclude a party from assigning, charging or otherwise dealing with all or any part of its interest in any sum payable to it under Section 18.
26.3.    Agreement Termination. This Agreement shall terminate, automatically and without any requirement for notice, on the date after the Termination Date on which all Obligations (other than contingent reimbursement or indemnification obligations as to which no claim has been asserted) have been indefeasibly paid in full, provided, that the provisions of Sections 6.4, 6.5, 7 and 20 shall survive the termination of this Agreement, provided further, that this Agreement and any Open Transactions may be extended by mutual agreement of the Buyers, the Agent and the Seller; and provided further, that no such party shall be obligated to agree to such an extension.
27 Counterparts.

102
Detroit\1205907\17\



This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which counterparts shall be deemed to be an original, and such counterparts shall constitute but one and the same instrument.
28 Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Venue.
THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING THIS CHOICE-OF-LAW PROVISION) AND THE OTHER REPURCHASE DOCUMENTS SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED AND ALL CONTROVERSIES AND DISPUTES ARISING UNDER, IN CONNECTION WITH OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER REPURCHASE DOCUMENTS SHALL BE RESOLVED, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA APPLICABLE TO CONTRACTS MADE AND TO BE WHOLLY PERFORMED WITHIN SUCH STATE. THE SELLER, THE AGENT AND THE BUYERS EACH HEREBY IRREVOCABLY SUBMITS TO THE NONEXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN OR, IF SUCH COURT DOES NOT HAVE JURISDICTION, MICHIGAN STATE COURT SITTING IN DETROIT, FOR THE PURPOSE OF ANY ACTION OR OTHER PROCEEDING ARISING UNDER, IN CONNECTION WITH OR RELATING TO THE REPURCHASE DOCUMENTS OR ANY RELATED TRANSACTION. Seller irrevocably consents to the service of any and all process in any such action or proceeding brought in any court in or of the State of Michigan by the delivery of copies of such process to it at the applicable addresses specified on in Section 23 in a notice to the other parties that complies as to delivery with the terms of Section 23. Nothing in this Section 28 shall affect the right of the Buyers and the Agent to serve process in any other manner permitted by law or limit the right of the Buyers or the Agent (or any of them) to bring any such action or proceeding against Seller or any of their property in the courts with subject matter jurisdiction of any other jurisdiction. Seller irrevocably waives any objection to the laying of venue of any such suit or proceeding in the above described courts.
29 Waiver of Jury Trial.
EACH OF THE SELLER (IN ITS CAPACITY AS SELLER AND SERVICER), THE BUYERS AND THE AGENT HEREBY (a) COVENANTS AND AGREES NOT TO ELECT A TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY ISSUE TRIABLE OF RIGHT BY A JURY, AND (b) WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY FULLY TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY SUCH RIGHT SHALL NOW OR HEREAFTER EXIST. THIS WAIVER OF RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IS SEPARATELY GIVEN, KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY, BY EACH OF THE SELLER, THE BUYERS AND THE AGENT, AND THIS WAIVER IS INTENDED TO ENCOMPASS INDIVIDUALLY EACH INSTANCE AND EACH ISSUE AS TO WHICH THE RIGHT OF A JURY TRIAL WOULD OTHERWISE ACCRUE. THE AGENT IS HEREBY AUTHORIZED AND REQUESTED TO SUBMIT THIS AGREEMENT TO ANY COURT HAVING JURISDICTION OVER THE SUBJECT MATTER AND THE PARTIES HERETO, SO AS TO SERVE AS CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE OF THE FOREGOING WAIVER OF THE RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL. FURTHER, THE SELLER HEREBY CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE OR AGENT OF THE BUYERS OR THE

103
Detroit\1205907\17\



AGENT HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, TO ANY STOCKHOLDER, DIRECTOR, OFFICER, AGENT OR REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SELLER THAT THE BUYERS OR THE AGENT WILL NOT SEEK TO ENFORCE THIS WAIVER OF RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL PROVISION.
30 Relationship of the Parties.
This Agreement provides for the sale by the Seller and the purchase by the Buyers (acting through their agent and representative, the Agent) of Eligible Loans and the obligation of the Seller to repurchase them upon termination of each Transaction. The relationship between the Seller and the Buyers (and the Agent) is limited to that of seller and repurchaser on the one hand and buyers and resellers (and the Agent as the Buyers’ agent and representative) on the other. The provisions in this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents for compliance with financial covenants and delivery of financial statements are intended solely for the benefit of the Buyers and the Agent, to protect the interests of the Buyers as buyers, including the Buyers’ and the Agent’s interest in assuring repurchase of Purchased Loans at the termination of each Transaction, and nothing contained in this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents shall be construed as permitting or obligating any Buyer or the Agent to act as a financial or business advisor or consultant to the Seller, as permitting or obligating any Buyer or the Agent to control the Seller or to conduct the Seller’s operations, as creating any fiduciary obligation on the part of the Buyers or the Agent to the Seller, or as creating any joint venture, agency or other relationship between the parties other than as explicitly and specifically stated in this Agreement. The Seller acknowledges that it has had the opportunity to obtain the advice of experienced counsel of its own choosing in connection with the negotiation and execution of this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents and to obtain the advice of such counsel with respect to all matters contained in the Repurchase Documents including the provision for waiver of trial by jury. The Seller further acknowledges that it is experienced with respect to financial and credit matters and has made its own independent decisions to apply to the Buyers and the Agent to enter into this Agreement, and to execute and deliver this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents.
31 No Waivers, Etc.
No express or implied waiver of any Event of Default by any party shall constitute a waiver of any other Event of Default and no exercise of any remedy hereunder by any party shall constitute a waiver of its right to exercise any other remedy hereunder. No modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement and no consent by any party to a departure herefrom shall be effective unless and until such shall be in writing and duly executed by the Seller and the parties required to do so pursuant to Section 23. Without limitation on any of the foregoing, the failure to give a notice pursuant to Section 23 will not constitute a waiver of any right to do so at a later date. The rights and remedies of the Buyers hereunder shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights and remedies that the Buyers would otherwise have. No failure or delay on the part of the Buyers in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.


104
Detroit\1205907\17\



32 Use of Employee Plan Assets.
32.1.    Prohibited Transactions. If assets of an employee benefit plan subject to any provision of ERISA are intended to be used by any party hereto (the “Plan Party”) in a Transaction, the Plan Party shall so notify the other parties prior to the Transaction. The Plan Party shall represent in writing to the other parties that the Transaction does not constitute a prohibited transaction under ERISA or is otherwise exempt therefrom, and the other parties may proceed in reliance thereon but shall not be required so to proceed.
32.2.    Audited Financial Statements Required. Subject to the last sentence of Section 32.1, any such Transaction shall proceed only if the Seller furnishes or has furnished to the Agent its most recent available audited statement of its financial condition and its most recent subsequent unaudited statement of its financial condition.
32.3.    Representations. By entering into a Transaction pursuant to this Section 32, the Seller shall be deemed (a) to represent to the Buyers and the Agent that since the date of the Seller’s latest such financial statements, there has been no material adverse change in the Seller’s financial condition that the Seller has not disclosed to the Agent, and (b) to agree to provide the Agent with future audited and unaudited statements of its financial condition as they are issued, so long as it is a Seller in any Open Transaction involving a Plan Party.
33 Intent.
33.1.    Transactions are Repurchase Agreements and Securities Contracts. The parties intend and acknowledge that each Transaction is a “repurchase agreement” and a “master netting agreement” as such terms are defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code (except insofar as the type of Mortgage Loans subject to such Transaction or the term of such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable), and a “securities contract” as that term is defined in Section 741 of the Bankruptcy Code (except insofar as the type of assets subject to such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable). This Agreement also 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 any or all of the parties is not a “financial institution” as that term is defined in FDICIA). The Seller hereby agrees that it shall not challenge the characterization of this Agreement as a “repurchase agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code, or as a “securities contract” as that term is defined in Section 741 of the Bankruptcy Code in any dispute or proceeding.
33.2.    Contractual Rights, Etc.Any party’s right to liquidate Mortgage Loans delivered to it in connection with Transactions hereunder or to exercise any other remedies pursuant to Section 18 is a contractual right to liquidate, terminate or accelerate such Transaction as described in Sections 555, 559 and 561 of the Bankruptcy Code.
33.3.    FDIA. 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

105
Detroit\1205907\17\



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).
33.4.    Master Netting Agreement. It is understood and agreed that this Agreement constitutes a “master netting agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code, and that a party’s right to cause the termination, liquidation, or acceleration of, or to offset net termination values, payment amounts or other transfer obligations arising under or in connection with, this Agreement or any Transaction is a contractual right to cause the termination, liquidation, or acceleration of, or to offset net termination values, payment amounts or other transfer obligations arising under or in connection with, this Agreement or any Transaction as described in Section 561 of the Bankruptcy Code.
34 Disclosure Relating to Certain Federal Protections.
The parties acknowledge that they have been advised that:
34.1.    Parties not Protected by SIPA or Insured by FDIC or NCUSIF. In the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a broker or dealer registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) under Section 15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“1934 Act”), the Securities Investor Protection Corporation has taken the position that the provisions of SIPA do not protect the other party with respect to any Transaction hereunder.
34.2.    SIPA Does Not Protect Government Securities Broker or Dealer Counterparty. In the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a government securities broker or a government securities dealer registered with the SEC under Section 15C of the 1934 Act, SIPA will not provide protection to the other party with respect to any Transaction hereunder.
34.3.    Transaction Funds Are Not Insured Deposits. In the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a financial institution, funds held by such financial institution pursuant to a Transaction hereunder are not a deposit and therefore are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (through either the Bank Insurance Fund or the Savings Association Insurance Fund) or the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, as applicable.
35 USA Patriot Act Notification.
Pursuant to Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act, the Agent and the Buyers hereby notify the Seller that if they or any of their Subsidiaries open an account, including any loan, deposit account, treasury management account, or other extension of credit with Agent or any Buyer, the Agent or the applicable Buyer will request the applicable Person’s name, tax identification number, business address and other information necessary to identify such Person (and may request such Person’s organizational documents or other identifying documents) to the extent necessary for the Agent and the applicable Buyer to comply with the USA Patriot Act.



106
Detroit\1205907\17\



36 Waiver of Fees, Costs and Expenses.
Agent, Custodian, Approved MBS Custodian and each Buyer shall have the right, in their sole discretion, at any time and from time to time, to waive or reduce (but not increase) any fees (including the Facility Fee, the Agent’s Fee, and Custodian Fees) owing to it by the Seller, and/or any costs and expenses (including without limitation attorney's fees and third party audit fees) incurred by Agent, Custodian, Approved MBS Custodian or such Buyer for which the Seller is obligated to reimburse Agent, Custodian, Approved MBS Custodian or such Buyer. Custodian and each Buyer shall promptly inform the Agent of any waiver of all or any portion of the Facility Fee, Custodian Fees, account-related charges or fees, or any other fees, costs or expenses (including without limitation attorney's fees and third party audit fees) owing by Seller to such Buyer or Custodian under this Agreement. Such Buyer shall notify Seller and Agent of any waiver or reduction in the amount of the Facility Fee or other costs and expenses payable by the Seller to such Buyer. The waivers and adjustments identified in such notice shall become effective on a date determined by Agent (but in any event shall not become effective prior to the date such notice is received). The Seller hereby acknowledges and agrees that nothing in this Section 36 shall obligate any Buyer to grant any such waiver or reduction.
37 Amended and Restated.
This Agreement amends, restates, replaces and supersedes in its entirety the Master Repurchase Agreement between Seller, Comerica Bank, as agent, lead arranger and a buyer, and certain other buyers dated October 25, 2010, as amended by Amendment No. 1 dated October 20, 2011, (as amended, the “Prior Agreement”); provided, however, nothing contained herein shall impair the liens, security interests and other rights established or continued by the Prior Agreement, which liens, security interests and other rights shall continue in full force and effect. All “Purchased Loans” (as defined in the Prior Agreement) (the “Existing Purchased Loans”), shall be Purchased Loans under this Agreement as if originally funded under this Agreement so long as such Existing Purchased Loans meet all of the requirements for eligibility and inclusion under this Agreement, provided, however, (a) the determination of the Purchase Date under paragraph 9 of Schedule DQ under this Agreement shall be calculated based on the original Purchase Date as determined under the Prior Agreement, and (b) such Existing Purchased Loans shall be deemed to comply with the requirement of paragraph 8 of Schedule EL under this Agreement if the date of each underlying Mortgage Note for such Existing Purchased Loans was not earlier than 30 days prior to the date such Existing Purchased Loan was purchased under the Prior Agreement. On the Effective Date, each Buyer shall (i) have Committed Sums equal to the applicable amounts set forth in Schedule BC hereto and (ii) have funded its Funding Share of all Transactions (and participation in Swing Line Transactions) outstanding on the Effective Date. To facilitate the foregoing, each Buyer which as a result of the adjustments of Committed Sums and Funding Shares evidenced by Schedule BC hereto is to have a greater principal amount of the Transactions outstanding than such Buyer had outstanding under the Prior Agreement immediately prior to the Effective Date, shall deliver to the Agent immediately available funds to cover such Transactions (and the Agent shall, to the extent of the funds so received, disburse funds to each Buyer which, as a result of the adjustment of the Funding Shares, is to have a lesser principal amount of Transactions outstanding than such Buyer had under the Prior Agreement). The Buyers agree that any Price Differential, Facility Fees and

107
Detroit\1205907\17\



other fees accrued under the Prior Agreement shall constitute the property of the Buyers which were parties to the Prior Agreement and shall be distributed (to the extent received from the Seller) to such Buyers on the basis of the Funding Shares in effect under the Prior Agreement. Furthermore, it is acknowledged and agreed that all fees paid under the Prior Agreement shall not be recalculated, redistributed or reallocated by Agent among the Buyers.
