It is herein acknowledged that, in conducting such review, neither the Trustee nor the Custodian was under any duty or obligation (i) to inspect, review or examine any such documents, instruments, certificates or other papers to determine whether they are genuine, enforceable, or appropriate for the represented purpose (including with respect to Section 2.01(a)(vi), whether such title insurance policy insures the priority of the Mortgage as a first lien) or whether they have actually been recorded or that they are other than what they purport to be on their face or (ii) to determine whether any Mortgage File should include any of the documents specified in Section 2.01(a)(iv). Prior to the first anniversary date of this Agreement, the Trustee shall cause the Custodian to deliver to the Depositor, the Trustee, the Seller and the Servicer a final certification in substantially the form annexed hereto as Exhibit C-2 (the “Final Certification”) evidencing the completeness of the Mortgage Files, with any applicable exceptions noted thereon.
