In conducting such review, the Trustee or the Custodian on its behalf will ascertain whether all required documents have been executed and received and whether those documents relate, determined on the basis of the Mortgagor name, original principal balance and loan number, to the Mortgage Loans identified in Exhibit B to this Agreement, as supplemented (provided, however, that with respect to those documents described in subclauses (iv) and (vi) of Section 2.01, such obligations shall extend only to documents actually delivered pursuant to such subclauses). In performing any such review, the Trustee and the Custodian may conclusively rely on the purported due execution and genuineness of any such document and on the purported genuineness of any signature thereon. If the Trustee or the Custodian on its behalf finds any document constituting part of the Mortgage File not to have been executed or received, or to be unrelated to the Mortgage Loans identified in Exhibit B or to appear to be defective on its face, the Trustee or the Custodian on its behalf shall include such information in the exception report attached to the Interim Certification. EMC (on its own behalf as a Seller and on behalf of Master Funding) shall correct or cure any such defect or, if prior to the end of the second anniversary of the Closing Date, EMC (on its own behalf as a Seller and on behalf of Master Funding) may substitute for the related Mortgage Loan a Replacement Mortgage Loan, which substitution shall be accomplished in the manner and subject to the conditions set forth in Section 2.03 or shall deliver to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel addressed to the Trustee to the effect that such defect does not materially or adversely affect the interests of the Certificateholders in such Mortgage Loan within 60 days from the date of notice from the Trustee of the defect and if EMC (on its own behalf as a Seller and on behalf of Master Funding) fails to correct or cure the defect or deliver such opinion within such period, EMC (on its own behalf as a Seller and on behalf of Master Funding) will, subject to Section 2.03, within 90 days from the notification of the Trustee purchase such Mortgage Loan at the Purchase Price; provided, however, that if such defect relates solely to the inability of EMC (on its own behalf as a Seller and on behalf of Master Funding) to deliver the Mortgage, assignment thereof to the Trustee, or intervening assignments thereof with evidence of recording thereon because such documents have been submitted for recording and have not been returned by the applicable jurisdiction, EMC (on its own behalf as a Seller and on behalf of Master Funding) shall not be required to purchase such Mortgage Loan if EMC delivers such documents promptly upon receipt, but in no event later than 360 days after the Closing Date.
