By the Seller Subject to Section 7.1(E) hereof, the Seller shall indemnify, save, defend and hold harmless the Parent and Buyer and their respective shareholders, directors, officers, partners, agents and employees (collectively, the "Buyer Indemnified Parties") from and against any and all costs, lawsuits, losses, liabilities, deficiencies, claims and expenses, including interest, penalties, attorneys' fees and all amounts paid in investigation, defense or settlement of any of the foregoing (collectively referred to herein as "Damages"), (i) incurred in connection with or arising out of or resulting from or incident to any breach of any covenant, breach of warranty as of the Effective Date, or the inaccuracy of any representation as of the Effective Date, made by the Seller in or pursuant to this Agreement or the Ancillary Agreements, or any other agreement contemplated hereby or in any schedule, certificate, exhibit, or other instrument furnished or to be furnished by the Seller under this Agreement, (ii) based upon, arising out of, or otherwise in respect of any liability or obligation of the Business or relating to the Assets (a) relating to any period prior to the Effective Date, other than those Damages based upon or arising out of the Assumed Liabilities, or (b) arising out of facts or circumstances existing prior to the Effective Date, other than those Damages based upon or arising out of the Assumed Liabilities; provided however, that the Seller shall not be liable for any such Damages to the extent, if any, such Damages result from or arise out of a breach or violation of this Agreement by any Buyer Indemnified Parties, and (iii) any liability under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act or other federal or state law or regulation, at common law or otherwise, arising out of or based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a Material fact relating to the Seller, and provided to Parent or its counsel by the Seller, contained in the Registration Statement or any prospectus forming a part thereof, or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto, or arising out of or based upon any omission or alleged omission to state therein a Material fact relating to the Seller required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, provided however, that such indemnity shall not inure to the benefit of Parent and Buyer to the extent such untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) was made in, or omission (or alleged omission) occurred in, any preliminary prospectus and Seller provided, in writing, corrected information to Parent and Parent's counsel for inclusion in the Final Prospectus, and such information was not included or properly delivered.
Assignment by the Depositor or the Servicer Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, except as provided in Sections 6.04 and 7.03 herein and as provided in the provisions of this Agreement concerning the resignation of the Servicer, this Agreement may not be assigned by the Depositor or the Servicer.
Advances by the Servicer If, on any Determination Date, the Servicer determines that any Monthly Payments due on the immediately preceding Due Date have not been received, the Servicer shall, unless it determines in its sole discretion that such amounts will not be recoverable from Late Collections, Liquidation Proceeds or otherwise, make an Advance on or before the related Distribution Date in an amount equal to the amount of such delinquent Monthly Payments, after adjustment of any delinquent interest payment for the Servicing Fee. For purposes of this Section 6.03, the delinquent Monthly Payments referred to in the preceding sentence shall be deemed to include an amount equal to the Monthly Payments that would have been due on Mortgage Loans which have been foreclosed or otherwise terminated and in connection with which the Servicer acquired and continues to own the Mortgaged Properties on behalf of the Certificateholders. If the Servicer makes an Advance, it shall on or prior to such Distribution Date either (i) deposit in the Collection Account an amount equal to such Advance, (ii) cause to be made an appropriate entry in the records of the Collection Account that funds in such account being held for future distribution or withdrawal have been, as permitted by this Section 6.03, used by the Servicer to make such Advance or (iii) make Advances in the form of any combination of clauses (i) and (ii) aggregating the amount of such Advance. Any funds being held in the Collection Account for future distribution to Certificateholders and so used pursuant to clause (ii) or (iii) above shall be replaced by the Servicer from its own funds by deposit into the Collection Account on or before any subsequent Distribution Date to the extent that funds in the Collection Account on such Distribution Date shall be less than the amount of payments required to be made to Certificateholders on such Distribution Date. Any such Advance shall be included with the distribution to the Certificateholders on the related Distribution Date. If the Servicer determines not to make a Nonrecoverable Advance, it shall on the related Determination Date furnish to the Trustee, any co-trustee, and each Rating Agency notice of such determination. The Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed from the Collection Account for all Advances and Nonrecoverable Advances as provided in Section 5.09.
Indemnities by the Servicer (a) Without limiting any other rights that any such Person may have hereunder or under Applicable Law, the Servicer hereby agrees to indemnify each Indemnified Party, forthwith on demand, from and against any and all Indemnified Amounts (calculated without duplication of Indemnified Amounts paid by the Borrower pursuant to Section 9.1 above) awarded against or incurred by any such Indemnified Party by reason of any acts, omissions or alleged acts or omissions of the Servicer, including, but not limited to (i) any representation or warranty made by the Servicer under or in connection with any Transaction Documents to which it is a party, any Monthly Report, Servicer’s Certificate or any other information or report delivered by or on behalf of the Servicer pursuant hereto, which shall have been false, incorrect or misleading in any material respect when made or deemed made, (ii) the failure by the Servicer to comply with any Applicable Law, (iii) the failure of the Servicer to comply with its duties or obligations in accordance with the Agreement or (iv) any litigation, proceedings or investigation against the Servicer, excluding, however, (a) Indemnified Amounts to the extent resulting from gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of such Indemnified Party, and (b) under any Federal, state or local income or franchise taxes or any other Tax imposed on or measured by income (or any interest or penalties with respect thereto or arising from a failure to comply therewith) required to be paid by such Indemnified Party in connection herewith to any taxing authority. The provisions of this indemnity shall run directly to and be enforceable by an injured party subject to the limitations hereof. If the Servicer has made any indemnity payment pursuant to this Section 9.2 and such payment fully indemnified the recipient thereof and the recipient thereafter collects any payments from others in respect of such Indemnified Amounts, the recipient shall repay to the Servicer an amount equal to the amount it has collected from others in respect of such indemnified amounts.
Successor to the Servicer Simultaneously with the termination of the Servicer's responsibilities and duties under this Agreement pursuant to Sections 6.02, 7.03, 8.03, 9.01 or 9.02, the Owner shall (i) succeed to and assume all of the Servicer's responsibilities, rights, duties and obligations under this Agreement, or (ii) appoint a successor having the characteristics set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) of Section 8.01 and which shall succeed to all rights and assume all of the responsibilities, duties and liabilities of the Servicer under this Agreement simultaneously with the termination of the Servicer's responsibilities, duties and liabilities under this Agreement. In connection with such appointment and assumption, the Owner may make such arrangements for the compensation of such successor out of payments on Mortgage Loans as it and such successor shall agree, provided, however, that no such compensation shall be in excess of that permitted the Servicer under this Agreement without the consent of the Owner. In the event that the Servicer's duties, responsibilities and liabilities under this Agreement should be terminated pursuant to the aforementioned sections, the Servicer shall discharge such duties and responsibilities during the period from the date it acquires knowledge of such termination until the effective date thereof with the same degree of diligence and prudence which 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 its successor. The resignation or removal of the Servicer pursuant to the aforementioned sections shall not become effective until a successor shall be appointed pursuant to this Section 10.01 and shall in no event relieve the Servicer of the representations and warranties made pursuant to Sections 6.01 and the remedies available to the Owner under Section 6.02 and 7.03, it being understood and agreed that the provisions of such Sections 6.01, 6.02 and 7.03 shall be applicable to the Servicer notwithstanding any such resignation or termination of the Servicer, or the termination of this Agreement. Within 30 days of the appointment of a successor entity by the Owner, the Servicer shall prepare, execute and deliver to the successor entity any and all documents and other instruments, place in such successor's possession all Servicing Files, and do or cause to be done all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such notice of termination, 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, at the discretion of the Owner and, at the Owner's sole expense. The Servicer shall cooperate with the Owner and such successor in effecting the termination of the Servicer's responsibilities and rights hereunder and the transfer of servicing responsibilities to the successor servicer, including without limitation, the transfer to such successor for administration by it of all cash amounts which shall at the time be credited by the Servicer to the Custodial Account or Escrow Account or thereafter received with respect to the Mortgage Loans. Any successor appointed as provided herein shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Servicer and to the Owner an instrument accepting such appointment, wherein the successor shall make the representations and warranties set forth in Section 6.01, whereupon such successor shall become fully vested with all the rights, powers, duties, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities of the Servicer, with like effect as if originally named as a party to this Agreement. Any termination or resignation of the Servicer or termination of this Agreement pursuant to Sections 6.02, 7.03, 8.03, 9.01 or 9.02 shall not affect any claims that the Owner may have against the Servicer arising out of the Servicer's actions or failure to act prior to any such termination or resignation. The Servicer shall deliver promptly to the successor servicer the funds in the Custodial Account and Escrow Account and all Mortgage Loan documents and related documents and statements held by it hereunder and the Servicer 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 all such rights, powers, duties, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities of the Servicer. Upon a successor's acceptance of appointment as such, the Servicer shall notify by mail the Owner of such appointment in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 10.07.
Independence of the Servicer For all purposes of this Agreement, the Servicer shall be an independent contractor and shall not be subject to the supervision of the Issuer, the Trust Collateral Agent, the Trustee or the Owner Trustee with respect to the manner in which it accomplishes the performance of its obligations hereunder. Unless expressly authorized by this Agreement or any other Basic Document, the Servicer shall have no authority to act for or represent the Issuer or the Owner Trustee in any way and shall not otherwise be deemed an agent of the Issuer or the Owner Trustee.
Appointment of the Servicer (a) The servicing, administering and collection of the Pool Receivables shall be conducted by the Person so designated from time to time as the Servicer in accordance with this Section. Until the Administrator gives notice to Peabody (in accordance with this Section) of the designation of a new Servicer, Peabody is hereby designated as, and hereby agrees to perform the duties and obligations of, the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof. Upon the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Administrator may designate as Servicer any Person (including itself) to succeed Peabody or any successor Servicer, on the condition in each case that any such Person so designated shall agree to perform the duties and obligations of the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof.
Authorization of the Servicer (a) Each of the Borrower, each Managing Agent, on behalf of itself and the related Lenders, the Administrative Agent and each Hedge Counterparty hereby authorizes the Servicer (including any successor thereto) to take any and all reasonable steps in its name and on its behalf necessary or desirable and not inconsistent with the pledge of the Transferred Loans to the Lender, each Hedge Counterparty, and the Collateral Custodian, in the determination of the Servicer, to collect all amounts due under any and all Transferred Loans, including, without limitation, endorsing any of their names on checks and other instruments representing Collections, executing and delivering any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge, and all other comparable instruments, with respect to the Transferred Loans and, after the delinquency of any Transferred Loan and to the extent permitted under and in compliance with Applicable Law, to commence proceedings with respect to enforcing payment thereof, to the same extent as the Originator could have done if it had continued to own such Loan; provided, however, that the Servicer may not execute any document in the name of, or which imposes any direct obligation on, any Lender. The Borrower shall furnish the Servicer (and any successors thereto) with any powers of attorney and other documents necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties hereunder, and shall cooperate with the Servicer to the fullest extent in order to ensure the collectibility of the Transferred Loans. In no event shall the Servicer be entitled to make the Borrower, any Lender, any Managing Agent, any Hedge Counterparty, the Collateral Custodian or the Administrative Agent a party to any litigation without such party’s express prior written consent, or to make the Borrower a party to any litigation (other than any routine foreclosure or similar collection procedure) without the Administrative Agent’s consent.
Monthly Advances by the Servicer On the Business Day immediately preceding each Remittance Date, the Servicer shall deposit in the Custodial Account from its own funds or from amounts held for future distribution an amount equal to all Monthly Payments (with interest adjusted to the Mortgage Loan Remittance Rate) which were due on the Mortgage Loans during the applicable Due Period and which were delinquent at the close of business on the immediately preceding Determination Date or which were deferred pursuant to Section 4.01. Any amounts held for future distribution and so used shall be replaced by the Servicer by deposit in the Custodial Account on or before any future Remittance Date if funds in the Custodial Account on such Remittance Date shall be less than payments to the Owner required to be made on such Remittance Date. The Servicer's obligation to make such Monthly Advances as to any Mortgage Loan will continue through the last Monthly Payment due prior to the payment in full of the Mortgage Loan, or through the last Remittance Date prior to the Remittance Date for the distribution of all Liquidation Proceeds and other payments or recoveries (including REO Disposition Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds and Condemnation Proceeds) with respect to the Mortgage Loan; provided, however, that such obligation shall cease if the Servicer determines, in its sole reasonable opinion, that advances with respect to such Mortgage Loan are non-recoverable by the Servicer from Liquidation Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds, or otherwise with respect to a particular Mortgage Loan. In the event that the Servicer determines that any such advances are non-recoverable, the Servicer shall provide the Owner with a certificate signed by an officer of the Servicer evidencing such determination.
