Master Servicer The Master Servicer shall supervise, monitor and oversee the obligation of the Servicers to service and administer their respective Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms of the applicable Servicing Agreement and, where applicable, the Correspondent Sellers Guide and the Master Servicing Guide, and shall have full power and authority to do any and all things which it may deem necessary or desirable in connection with such master servicing and administration. In performing its obligations hereunder, the Master Servicer shall act in a manner consistent with Accepted Master Servicing Practices and, where applicable, the Master Servicing Guide. Furthermore, the Master Servicer shall oversee and consult with each Servicer as necessary from time-to-time to carry out the Master Servicer's obligations hereunder, shall receive, review and evaluate all reports, information and other data provided to the Master Servicer by each Servicer and shall cause each Servicer to perform and observe the covenants, obligations and conditions to be performed or observed by such Servicer under the applicable Servicing Agreement. The Master Servicer shall independently and separately monitor each Servicer's servicing activities with respect to each related Mortgage Loan, reconcile the results of such monitoring with such information provided in the previous sentence on a monthly basis and coordinate corrective adjustments to the Servicers' and Master Servicer's records, and based on such reconciled and corrected information, prepare the statements specified in Section 6.04 and any other information and statements required hereunder. The Master Servicer shall reconcile the results of its Mortgage Loan monitoring with the actual remittances of the Servicers to the related Servicer Accounts pursuant to the applicable Servicing Agreements. The Trustee shall furnish the Servicers and the Master Servicer with any limited powers of attorney and other documents in form as provided to it necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicers and the Master Servicer to service and administer the related Mortgage Loans and REO Property, which limited powers of attorney shall provide that the Trustee will not be liable for the actions or omissions of the Servicers or Master Servicer in exercising such powers. The Trustee shall provide access to the records and documentation in possession of the Trustee (including in its capacity as Custodian hereunder) regarding the related Mortgage Loans and REO Property and the servicing thereof to the Certificateholders, the FDIC, and the supervisory agents and examiners of the FDIC, such access being afforded only upon reasonable prior written request and during normal business hours at the office of the Trustee; provided, however, that, unless otherwise required by law, the Trustee shall not be required to provide access to such records and documentation if the provision thereof would violate the legal right to privacy of any Mortgagor. The Trustee shall allow representatives of the above entities to photocopy any of the records and documentation and shall provide equipment for that purpose at a charge that covers the Trustee's actual costs. The Trustee shall execute and deliver to the related Servicer and the Master Servicer any court pleadings, requests for trustee's sale or other documents necessary or desirable to (i) the foreclosure or trustee's sale with respect to a Mortgaged Property; (ii) any legal action brought to obtain judgment against any Mortgagor on the Mortgage Note or Security Instrument; (iii) obtain a deficiency judgment against the Mortgagor; or (iv) enforce any other rights or remedies provided by the Mortgage Note or Security Instrument or otherwise available at law or equity.

Depositor as Certificateholder The Depositor in its individual or any other capacity may become the owner or pledgee of Certificates and may otherwise deal with the Owner Trustee or its Affiliates as if it were not the Depositor.
Insurer The Insurer shall be bound only by the terms of the Policy. Any payments the Insurer makes or actions it takes in accordance with the Policy shall fully discharge it from all claims, suits and demands of all entities or persons.

Trustee and Certificate Administrator May Own Certificates The Trustee, the Certificate Administrator and any agent of the Trustee or the Certificate Administrator, each, in its individual capacity or any other capacity, may become the owner or pledgee of Certificates, and may deal with the Depositor and the Master Servicer in banking transactions, with the same rights it would have if it were not Trustee, the Certificate Administrator or such agent, as the case may be.
No Contractual Relationship Between Subservicer and Trustee or Certificateholders Any Subservicing Agreement that may be entered into and any other transactions or services relating to the Mortgage Loans involving a Subservicer in its capacity as such and not as an originator shall be deemed to be between the Subservicer and the Master Servicer alone and the Trustee and the Certificateholders shall not be deemed parties thereto and shall have no claims, rights, obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to the Subservicer in its capacity as such except as set forth in Section 3.06. The foregoing provision shall not in any way limit a Subservicer's obligation to cure an omission or defect or to repurchase a Mortgage Loan as referred to in Section 2.02 hereof.
Indemnification of the Trustee, the Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator (a) The Master Servicer agrees to indemnify the Indemnified Persons for, and to hold them harmless against, any loss, liability or expense (except as otherwise provided herein with respect to expenses) (including reasonable legal fees and disbursements of counsel) incurred on their part that may be sustained in connection with, arising out of, or relating to this Agreement or the Certificates (i) related to the Master Servicer’s failure to perform its duties in compliance with this Agreement (except as any such loss, liability or expense shall be otherwise reimbursable pursuant to this Agreement) or (ii) incurred by reason of the Master Servicer’s willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of duties hereunder or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder, provided, in each case, that with respect to any such claim or legal action (or pending or threatened claim or legal action), an Indemnified Person shall have given the Master Servicer and the Depositor written notice thereof promptly after such Indemnified Person shall have with respect to such claim or legal action knowledge thereof. The Indemnified Person’s failure to give such notice shall not affect the Indemnified Person’s right to indemnification hereunder. This indemnity shall survive the resignation or removal of the Trustee, the Master Servicer or the Securities Administrator and the termination of this Agreement.
Special Servicer The Controlling Noteholder, at its expense (including, without limitation, the reasonable costs and expenses of counsel to any third parties and costs and expenses of the terminated Special Servicer), shall have the right, at any time from time to time, to appoint a replacement Special Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loan. The Controlling Noteholder shall be entitled to terminate the rights and obligations of the Special Servicer under the Servicing Agreement, with or without cause, upon at least ten (10) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Special Servicer (provided, however, that the Controlling Noteholder shall not be liable for any termination or similar fee in connection with the removal of the Special Servicer in accordance with this Section 5); such termination not be effective unless and until (A) each Rating Agency delivers a Rating Agency Confirmation (to the extent any portion of the Mortgage Loan has been securitized); (B) the initial or successor Special Servicer has assumed in writing (from and after the date such successor Special Servicer becomes the Special Servicer) all of the responsibilities, duties and liabilities of the Special Servicer under the Servicing Agreement from and after the date it becomes the Special Servicer as they relate to the Mortgage Loan pursuant to an assumption agreement reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee; and (C) the Trustee shall have received an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee to the effect that (x) the designation of such replacement to serve as Special Servicer is in compliance with the Servicing Agreement, (y) such replacement will be bound by the terms of the Servicing Agreement with respect to such Mortgage Loan and (z) subject to customary qualifications and exceptions, the applicable Servicing Agreement will be enforceable against such replacement in accordance with its terms. The Lead Securitization Noteholder shall promptly provide copies to any terminated Special Servicer of the documents referred to in the preceding sentence. The Lead Securitization Noteholder will reasonably cooperate with the Controlling Noteholder in order to satisfy the foregoing conditions, including the Rating Agency Confirmation. The Controlling Noteholder agrees and acknowledges that the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement may contain provisions such that any Special Servicer could be terminated under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement based on a recommendation by the Operating Advisor if (A) the Operating Advisor determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that (1) the Special Servicer has failed to comply with the Servicing Standard and (2) a replacement of the Special Servicer would be in the best interest of the holders of securities issued under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement (as a collective whole) and (B) an affirmative vote of requisite certificateholders is obtained. The Controlling Noteholder will retain its right to remove and replace the Special Servicer, but the Controlling Noteholder may not restore a Special Servicer that has been removed in accordance with the preceding sentence.
Trustee and Securities Administrator Not Liable for Certificates or Mortgage Loans The recitals contained herein and in the Certificates (other than the signature and countersignature of the Trustee on the Certificates) shall be taken as the statements of the Seller, and neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall have any responsibility for their correctness. Neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator makes any representation as to the validity or sufficiency of the Certificates (other than the signature and countersignature of the Trustee on the Certificates) or of any Mortgage Loan except as expressly provided in Sections 2.02 and 2.05 hereof; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not relieve the Trustee of the obligation to review the Mortgage Files pursuant to Sections 2.02 and 2.04. The Trustee's signature and countersignature (or countersignature of its agent) on the Certificates shall be solely in its capacity as Trustee and shall not constitute the Certificates an obligation of the Trustee in any other capacity. Neither the Trustee or the Securities Administrator shall be accountable for the use or application by the Seller of any of the Certificates or of the proceeds of such Certificates, or for the use or application of any funds paid to the Seller with respect to the Mortgage Loans. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.05, neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall not be responsible for the legality or validity of this Agreement or any document or instrument relating to this Agreement, the validity of the execution of this Agreement or of any supplement hereto or instrument of further assurance, or the validity, priority, perfection or sufficiency of the security for the Certificates issued hereunder or intended to be issued hereunder. Neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall at any time have any responsibility or liability for or with respect to the legality, validity and enforceability of any Mortgage or any Mortgage Loan, or the perfection and priority of any Mortgage or the maintenance of any such perfection and priority, or for or with respect to the sufficiency of the Trust Fund or its ability to generate the payments to be distributed to Certificateholders, under this Agreement. Neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall have any responsibility for filing any financing or continuation statement in any public office at any time or to otherwise perfect or maintain the perfection of any security interest or lien granted to it hereunder or to record this Agreement other than any continuation statements filed by the Trustee pursuant to Section 3.20.
Certificateholders The death or incapacity of any Certificateholder shall neither operate to terminate this Trust Agreement, nor entitle such Certificateholder’s legal representative or heirs to claim an accounting or to take any action or proceeding in any court for a partition or winding up of the affairs of the Trust Fund, nor otherwise affect the rights, duties and obligations of any of the parties to this Trust Agreement. Except as provided in Article V and Article VII, no Certificateholder shall have any right to vote or in any manner otherwise control the operation and management of the Trust Fund, or the obligations of the parties hereto, nor shall anything herein set forth, or contained in the terms of the Certificates, be construed so as to constitute the Certificateholders from time to time as partners or members of an association; nor shall any Certificateholder be under any liability to any third person by reason of any action taken by the parties to this Trust Agreement pursuant to any provision hereof. No Certificateholder shall have any right by virtue of any provision of this Trust Agreement to institute any suit, action or proceeding in equity or at law upon or under or with respect to this Trust Agreement unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing in respect of the Trust Agreement. It is understood and intended, and is expressly covenanted by each Certificateholder with every other Certificateholder and the Trustee, that no one or more Holders of Certificates shall have any right in any manner whatever by virtue of any provision of this Trust Agreement to affect, disturb or prejudice the rights of the Holders of any other such Certificates, or to obtain or seek to obtain priority over or preference to any other such Holder, or to enforce any right under this Trust Agreement, except in the manner herein provided and for the equal, ratable and common benefit of all Certificateholders. For the protection and enforcement of the provisions of this Section, each and every Certificateholder and the Trustee shall be entitled to such relief as can be given either at law or in equity.
