Borrower is the sole owner of the entire landlord's interest in the Leases;


all existing Leases are valid and enforceable, and there exist no written Leases and no amendments or other agreements, written or unwritten, modifying in any way the terms of any Lease which have not been delivered or disclosed to the Lender;
to the best of Borrower's knowledge, neither the landlord nor any Tenant is in default in any material respect under the provisions of any of the Leases, and no set-off or counterclaim against Borrower exists in favor of any Tenant;
Borrower has no knowledge of any act or omission on the part of any landlord or Tenant which, with the giving of notice or the passage of time, or both, would constitute material default under the provisions of any of the Leases;
no Rents for any period after the date of this Assignment have been waived by Borrower or collected by Borrower before the time they are due; and
no Rents have been assigned or encumbered.
SECTION 3.2    Intentionally deleted.

at its expense faithfully perform and observe every material obligation to be performed and observed by the landlord under each of the Leases;

not collect Rents for any period more than thirty (30) days before they are due;
not make any additional assignment of the Leases or the Rents;
deliver to Lender immediately upon receipt, but under no circumstances more than five (5) days after demand, all schedules, notices, demands or documents given or received by Borrower and in any way referring to the Leases, the Rents; and
not cause or permit any "oil," "hazardous materials," "hazardous wastes" or "hazardous substances" (collectively "Hazardous Substances") as defined under 42 U.S.C. Section 9601, et seq., as amended, 42 U.S.C. Section 6901,


et seq., as amended, Massachusetts General Laws, Chapters 21C and 21E, as amended, and the regulations from time to time adopted under those laws (collectively, "Environmental Legal Requirements") to be released on the Premises or into the air from the Premises or into the waste disposal system servicing the Premises, except in compliance with applicable Environmental Legal Requirements; not generate, store or dispose of Hazardous Substances in the Premises or dispose of Hazardous Substances from the Premises to any other location, except in compliance with all applicable Environmental Legal Requirements.
Lender's Remedies; Expenses

SECTION 5.1    Lender's Right to Perform. If Borrower fails to perform or observe any of its obligations under the Leases so as to entitle any Tenant to terminate a Lease or recover damages, Lender may, but with no duty to do so and without releasing Borrower, perform Borrower's obligations under the Leases to the extent Lender considers necessary to protect its security.
SECTION 5.2    Lender's Remedies. At any time after a default in the payment or performance of any Obligations, which default extends beyond any applicable grace period, regardless of whether Lender elects to declare the Obligations immediately due and payable, at its option, without notice to Borrower and without waiving the default, Lender may (i) take possession of the Premises and manage, lease and operate the Premises on such terms and for such period of time as it considers to be appropriate, and (ii) with or without taking possession of the Premises, in its own name or in the name of Borrower, sue for and collect the Rents, including any that are past due, and (iii) amend or terminate any of the Leases and enter into new Leases of all or any part of the Premises on terms which Lender considers appropriate, and any amendment, termination or new Lease made by Lender will be binding on Borrower. Lender may, whether or not it takes possession of the Premises and without any obligation to do so, make alterations, renovations, repairs and improvements to the Premises. Lender may exercise its remedies provided in this Section 5.2 without regard to the adequacy of any other security for the Obligations.
SECTION 5.3    Lender's Expenses. If, in exercising its rights and pursuing its remedies under this Assignment or with respect to any of the Obligations or Lender's security for the Obligations, Lender incurs any expenses, including attorneys' fees, Borrower agrees to reimburse those expenses on demand. If Borrower fails to reimburse any of Lender's expenses, Lender may reimburse them by application of Rents, as provided in Section 6.1, or Lender may add them to the principal amount of the Obligations. Regardless of any action by Lender, failure of Borrower to reimburse Lender's expenses within ten (10) days after demand, constitutes a material default under this Assignment.
SECTION 5.4    Remedies Cumulative. The rights and remedies of Lender under this Assignment are cumulative and are not in place of, but are in addition to, any other rights and


remedies which Lender may have under the Note, the Mortgage or any other agreement made in connection with the Note, the Mortgage or any of the Obligations.
Application of Rents

SECTION 6.1    Application of Rents. After any default in the payment or performance of any Obligations, which default extends beyond any applicable grace period, regardless of whether Lender elects to declare any Obligation immediately due and payable, Lender may apply any Rents then held or in the future received by it under this Assignment to payment of the following in such order of priority and in such amounts as Lender considers appropriate:
all reasonable expenses of taking possession of, managing, operating and maintaining the Premises, including but not limited to: the salaries and benefits of a managing agent and such other employees as Lender considers necessary; all supplies, utilities and fuel; all taxes, assessments, water rates, sewer rates and any other municipal charges and liens; premiums for all insurance which Lender considers necessary; and the cost of all reasonable alterations, renovations, repairs or improvements;
the Obligations; and
all reasonable expenses, including attorney's fees, incurred by Lender in connection with this Assignment, the Note, the Mortgage or any other Obligations.
SECTION 6.2    Balance of Rents. If any balance remains after the application of the Rents as provided in Section 6.1, Lender may pay the balance to Borrower. If Lender has any reasonable doubt about Borrower's entitlement, Lender may pay the balance as ordered in a final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction in any action brought by Lender or any other person claiming an interest in the Rents.

SECTION 7.1    Liability of Lender. No act, omission or error of judgment by Lender, other than its gross negligence or willful misconduct, in connection with this Assignment shall impose any liability on Lender or give rise to any offset, counterclaim or defense to the Obligations.
SECTION 7.2    Indemnification of Lender. Lender is not required to perform or observe any obligation under the Leases. Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify Lender against all claims, losses and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, which may be imposed on or


incurred by Lender by reason of the Leases, by reason of this Assignment, or by reason of any alleged obligation or undertaking to be performed by Lender under the Leases. If Lender incurs any loss or expense under the Leases or by reason of this Assignment or in the defense of any such alleged obligation, Borrower agrees immediately, upon demand, to reimburse Lender.
SECTION 7.3    Non-waiver. The failure of Lender to avail itself of any of the provisions of this Assignment, at any time or for any period of time, shall not be construed to be a waiver of any of its rights under this Assignment.
SECTION 7.4    Notices. Any notice, request, direction, consent, approval, waiver or other communication required or permitted under this Assignment must be in writing and will become effective only when received unless sent by certified or registered mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested and addressed to the parties respectively at their addresses recited in Section 1.1, in which case it will be effective three (3) days after being mailed. Either party may change its address by written notice to the other party given at least ten (10) days before the effective date of such change.


THIS ASSIGNMENT is binding upon and will inure to the benefit of Borrower and Lender and their respective successors and assigns.
