Sale of Defaulted Mortgage Loans and REO Properties (a) (i) Within thirty (30) days after a Defaulted Mortgage Loan has become a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan, the Special Servicer shall order (but shall not be required to have received) an Appraisal and within thirty (30) days of receipt of the Appraisal shall determine the fair value of such Defaulted Mortgage Loan in accordance with the Servicing Standard; provided, however, that if the Special Servicer is then in the process of obtaining an Appraisal with respect to the related Mortgaged Property, the Special Servicer shall make its fair value determination as soon as reasonably practicable (but in any event within thirty (30) days) after its receipt of such an Appraisal. The Special Servicer may, from time to time, adjust its fair value determination based upon changed circumstances, new information and other relevant factors, in each instance in accordance with a review of such circumstances and new information in accordance with the Servicing Standard; provided that the Special Servicer shall promptly notify the Master Servicer in writing of the initial fair value determination and any adjustment to its fair value determination.
Special Serviced Mortgage Loans If directed by the Special Servicer and solely at the Special Servicer’s option, each Servicer, other than WMMSC (a “Transferring Servicer”), shall transfer the servicing of any Mortgage Loan (other than a WMMSC Serviced Mortgage Loan) 90 days or more delinquent to the Special Servicer. The Special Servicer shall thereupon assume all of the rights and obligations of the Transferring Servicer, as Servicer, hereunder arising thereafter and the Transferring Servicer shall have no further rights or obligations, as Servicer, hereunder with respect to such Mortgage Loan (except that the Special Servicer shall not be (i) liable for losses of the Transferring Servicer pursuant to Section 3.09 hereof or for any acts or omissions of the Transferring Servicer hereunder prior to the servicing transfer date, (ii) obligated to effectuate repurchases or substitutions of Mortgage Loans hereunder including, but not limited to, repurchases or substitutions of Mortgage Loans pursuant to Section 2.02 or 2.03 hereof or (iii) deemed to have made any representations and warranties of the Transferring Servicer hereunder). Upon the transfer of the servicing of any such Mortgage Loan to the Special Servicer, the Special Servicer shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee and other compensation accruing after the servicing transfer date with respect to such Mortgage Loans pursuant to Section 3.14. In connection with the transfer of the servicing of any Mortgage Loan to the Special Servicer, the Transferring Servicer, at the Special Servicer’s expense, shall deliver to the Special Servicer all documents and records relating to such Mortgage Loans and an accounting of amounts collected or held by it and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the servicing to the Special Servicer. On the servicing transfer date, the Special Servicer shall reimburse the Transferring Servicer for all unreimbursed Advances, Servicing Advances and Servicing Fees relating to the Mortgage Loans for which the servicing is being transferred. The Special Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed pursuant to Section 3.08 or otherwise pursuant to this Agreement for all such Advances, Servicing Advances and Servicing Fees paid by the Transferring Servicer pursuant to this Section 3.19. In addition, the Special Servicer shall notify the Master Servicer of such transfer and the effective date of such transfer, and amend the Mortgage Loan Schedule to reflect that such Mortgage Loans are Special Serviced Mortgage Loans.
Purchase and Sale of the Mortgage Loans and Related Rights (a) Upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 10 hereof, the Mortgage Loan Seller agrees to sell, and the Purchaser agrees to purchase Mortgage Loans having an aggregate outstanding principal balance as of the Cut-off Date equal to the Cut-off Date Balance.
Collection of Taxes, Assessments and Similar Items; Servicing Accounts The Master Servicer shall establish and maintain, or cause to be established and maintained, one or more accounts (the "Servicing Accounts"), into which all Escrow Payments shall be deposited and retained. Servicing Accounts shall be Eligible Accounts. The Master Servicer shall deposit in the clearing account in which it customarily deposits payments and collections on mortgage loans in connection with its mortgage loan servicing activities on a daily basis, and in no event more than one Business Day after the Master Servicer's receipt thereof, all Escrow Payments collected on account of the Mortgage Loans and shall thereafter deposit such Escrow Payments in the Servicing Accounts, in no event more than two Business Days after the receipt of such Escrow Payments, all Escrow Payments collected on account of the Mortgage Loans for the purpose of effecting the timely payment of any such items as required under the terms of this Agreement. Withdrawals of amounts from a Servicing Account may be made only to (i) effect payment of taxes, assessments, hazard insurance premiums, and comparable items in a manner and at a time that assures that the lien priority of the Mortgage is not jeopardized (or, with respect to the payment of taxes, in a manner and at a time that avoids the loss of the Mortgaged Property due to a tax sale or the foreclosure as a result of a tax lien); (ii) reimburse the Master Servicer (or a Sub-Servicer to the extent provided in the related Sub-Servicing Agreement) out of related collections for any Servicing Advances made pursuant to Section 3.01 (with respect to taxes and assessments) and Section 3.14 (with respect to hazard insurance); (iii) refund to Mortgagors any sums as may be determined to be overages; (iv) pay interest, if required and as described below, to Mortgagors on balances in the Servicing Account; or (v) clear and terminate the Servicing Account at the termination of the Master Servicer's obligations and responsibilities in respect of the Mortgage Loans under this Agreement in accordance with Article X. In the event the Master Servicer shall deposit in a Servicing Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time withdraw such amount from such Servicing Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. The Master Servicer will be responsible for the administration of the Servicing Accounts and will be obligated to make Servicing Advances to such accounts when and as necessary to avoid the lapse of insurance coverage on the Mortgaged Property, or which the Master Servicer knows, or in the exercise of the required standard of care of the Master Servicer hereunder should know, is necessary to avoid the loss of the Mortgaged Property due to a tax sale or the foreclosure as a result of a tax lien. If any such payment has not been made and the Master Servicer receives notice of a tax lien with respect to the Mortgage being imposed, the Master Servicer will, within 10 business days of such notice, advance or cause to be advanced funds necessary to discharge such lien on the Mortgaged Property. As part of its servicing duties, the Master Servicer or Sub-Servicers shall pay to the Mortgagors interest on funds in the Servicing Accounts, to the extent required by law and, to the extent that interest earned on funds in the Servicing Accounts is insufficient, to pay such interest from its or their own funds, without any reimbursement therefor. The Master Servicer may pay to itself any excess interest on funds in the Servicing Accounts, to the extent such action is in conformity with the Servicing Standard, is permitted by law and such amounts are not required to be paid to Mortgagors or used for any of the other purposes set forth above.

Realization Upon Defaulted Mortgage Loans; REO Property (a) The Servicer shall use reasonable efforts to foreclose upon or otherwise comparably convert the ownership of Mortgaged Properties securing such of the Mortgage Loans as come into and continue in default and as to which no satisfactory arrangements can be made for collection of delinquent payments. In connection with such foreclosure or other conversion, the Servicer shall follow Customary Servicing Procedures and shall meet the requirements of the insurer under any Required Insurance Policy; provided, however, that the Servicer may enter into a special servicing agreement with an unaffiliated Holder of 100% Percentage Interest of a Class of Class B Certificates or a holder of a class of securities representing interests in the Class B Certificates alone or together with other subordinated mortgage pass-through certificates. Such agreement shall be substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit K or subject to each Rating Agency's acknowledgment that the ratings of the Certificates in effect immediately prior to the entering into such agreement would not be qualified, downgraded or withdrawn and the Certificates would not be placed on credit review status (except for possible upgrading) as a result of such agreement. Any such agreement may contain provisions whereby such holder may instruct the Servicer to commence or delay foreclosure proceedings with respect to delinquent Mortgage Loans and will contain provisions for the deposit of cash by the holder that would be available for distribution to Certificateholders if Liquidation Proceeds are less than they otherwise may have been had the Servicer acted in accordance with its normal procedures. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer shall not be required to expend its own funds in connection with any foreclosure or towards the restoration of any Mortgaged Property unless it shall determine (i) that such restoration and/or foreclosure will increase the proceeds of liquidation of the Mortgage Loan after reimbursement to itself of such expenses and (ii) that such expenses will be recoverable to it through proceeds of the liquidation of the Mortgage Loan (respecting which it shall have priority for purposes of withdrawals from the Servicer Custodial Account). Any such expenditures shall constitute Servicing Advances for purposes of this Agreement. The decision of the Servicer to foreclose on a defaulted Mortgage Loan shall be subject to a determination by the Servicer that the proceeds of such foreclosure would exceed the costs and expenses of bringing such a proceeding. With respect to any REO Property, the deed or certificate of sale shall be taken in the name of the Trustee for the benefit of the Certificateholders, or its nominee, on behalf of the Certificateholders. The Trustee's name shall be placed on the title to such REO Property solely as the Trustee hereunder and not in its individual capacity. The Servicer shall ensure that the title to such REO Property references this Agreement and the Trustee's capacity hereunder. Pursuant to its efforts to sell such REO Property, the Servicer shall either itself or through an agent selected by the Servicer manage, conserve, protect and operate such REO Property in the same manner that it manages, conserves, protects and operates other foreclosed property for its own account and in the same manner that similar property in the same locality as the REO Property is managed. Incident to its conservation and protection of the interests of the Certificateholders, the Servicer may rent the same, or any part thereof, as the Servicer deems to be in the best interest of the Certificateholders for the period prior to the sale of such REO Property. The Servicer shall prepare for and deliver to the Trustee a statement with respect to each REO Property that has been rented, if any, showing the aggregate rental income received and all expenses incurred in connection with the management and maintenance of such REO Property at such times as is necessary to enable the Trustee to comply with the reporting requirements of the REMIC Provisions; provided, however, that the Servicer shall have no duty to rent any REO Property on behalf of the Trust. The net monthly rental income, if any, from such REO Property shall be deposited in the Servicer Custodial Account no later than the close of business on each Determination Date. The Servicer shall perform, with respect to the Mortgage Loans, the tax reporting and withholding required by Sections 1445 and 6050J of the Code with respect to foreclosures and abandonments, the tax reporting required by Section 6050H of the Code with respect to the receipt of mortgage interest from individuals and, if required by Section 6050P of the Code with respect to the cancellation of indebtedness by certain financial entities, by preparing such tax and information returns as may be required, in the form required. The Servicer shall deliver copies of such reports to the Trustee. If the Trust acquires any Mortgaged Property as described above or otherwise in connection with a default or a default which is reasonably foreseeable on a Mortgage Loan, the Servicer shall dispose of such Mortgaged Property prior to the end of the third calendar year following the year of its acquisition by the Trust (such period, the "REO Disposition Period") unless (A) the Trustee shall have been supplied by the Servicer with an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that the holding by the Trust of such Mortgaged Property subsequent to the REO Disposition Period will not result in the imposition of taxes on "prohibited transactions" on the REMIC (as defined in Section 860F of the Code) or cause the Trust Estate to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any Certificates are outstanding, or (B) the Trustee (at the Servicer's expense) or the Servicer shall have applied for, prior to the expiration of the REO Disposition Period, an extension of the REO Disposition Period in the manner contemplated by Section 856(e)(3) of the Code. If such an Opinion of Counsel is provided or such an exemption is obtained, the Trust may continue to hold such Mortgaged Property (subject to any conditions contained in such Opinion of Counsel) for the applicable period. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Mortgaged Property acquired by the Trust shall be rented (or allowed to continue to be rented) or otherwise used for the production of income by or on behalf of the Trust in such a manner or pursuant to any terms that would (i) cause such Mortgaged Property to fail to qualify as "foreclosure property" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code or (ii) subject the REMIC to the imposition of any federal, state or local income taxes on the income earned from such Mortgaged Property under Section 860G(c) of the Code or otherwise, unless the Servicer has agreed to indemnify and hold harmless the Trust with respect to the imposition of any such taxes. The Servicer shall identify to the Trustee any Mortgaged Property relating to a Mortgage Loan held by the Trust for 30 months for which no plans to dispose of such Mortgaged Property by the Servicer have been made. After delivery of such identification, the Servicer shall proceed to dispose of any such Mortgaged Property by holding a commercially reasonable auction for such property. The income earned from the management of any REO Properties, net of reimbursement to the Servicer for expenses incurred (including any property or other taxes) in connection with such management and net of unreimbursed Servicing Fees, Periodic Advances and Servicing Advances, shall be applied to the payment of principal of and interest on the related defaulted Mortgage Loans (solely for the purposes of allocating principal and interest, interest shall be treated as accruing as though such Mortgage Loans were still current) and all such income shall be deemed, for all purposes in this Agreement, to be payments on account of principal and interest on the related Mortgage Notes and shall be deposited into the Servicer Custodial Account. To the extent the net income received during any calendar month is in excess of the amount attributable to amortizing principal and accrued interest at the related Mortgage Interest Rate on the related Mortgage Loan for such calendar month, such excess shall be considered to be a partial prepayment of principal of the related Mortgage Loan. The proceeds from any liquidation of a Mortgage Loan, as well as any income from an REO Property, will be applied in the following order of priority: first, to reimburse the Servicer for any related unreimbursed Servicing Advances and Servicing Fees; second, to reimburse the Servicer for any unreimbursed Periodic Advances and to reimburse the Servicer Custodial Account for any Nonrecoverable Advances (or portions thereof) that were previously withdrawn by the Servicer pursuant to Section 3.11(a)(iii) that related to such Mortgage Loan; third, to accrued and unpaid interest (to the extent no Periodic Advance has been made for such amount or any such Periodic Advance has been reimbursed) on the Mortgage Loan or related REO Property, at the Mortgage Rate to the Due Date occurring in the month in which such amounts are required to be distributed; and fourth, as a recovery of principal of the Mortgage Loan. Excess Proceeds, if any, from the liquidation of a Liquidated Mortgage Loan will be retained by the Servicer as additional servicing compensation pursuant to Section 3.17.
Collection of Taxes, Assessments and Similar Items; Servicing Accounts; Reserve Accounts (a) Each Master Servicer shall establish and maintain one or more segregated accounts (“Servicing Accounts”), in which all Escrow Payments received by it with respect to any Serviced Mortgage Loans or Serviced Pari Passu Companion Loan, shall be deposited and retained, separate and apart from its own funds. Subject to any terms of the related Mortgage Loan Documents that specify the nature of the account in which Escrow Payments shall be held, each Servicing Account shall be an Eligible Account. As and to the extent consistent with the Servicing Standard, applicable law and the related Mortgage Loan Documents, the applicable Master Servicer may make withdrawals from the Servicing Accounts maintained by it, and may apply Escrow Payments held therein with respect to any Serviced Mortgage Loan or Serviced Pari Passu Companion Loan (together with interest earned thereon), only as follows: (i) to effect the payment of real estate taxes, assessments, insurance premiums (including, premiums on any Environmental Insurance Policy), ground rents (if applicable) and comparable items in respect of the related Mortgaged Property; (ii) to reimburse the applicable Master Servicer, the applicable Special Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, for any unreimbursed Servicing Advances made thereby with respect to such Mortgage Loan or Serviced Pari Passu Companion Loan to cover any of the items described in the immediately preceding clause (i); (iii) to refund to the related Borrower any sums as may be determined to be overages; (iv) to pay interest or other income, if required and as described below, to the related Borrower on balances in the Servicing Account (or, if and to the extent not payable to the related Borrower to pay such interest or other income (up to the amount of any Net Investment Earnings in respect of such Servicing Account for each Collection Period) to the applicable Master Servicer); (v) disburse Insurance Proceeds if required to be applied to the repair or restoration of the related Mortgaged Property, (vi) after an event of default, to pay the principal of, accrued interest on and any other amounts payable with respect to such Mortgage Loan or Serviced Pari Passu Companion Loan; (vii) to withdraw amounts deposited in the Servicing Account in error; or (viii) to clear and terminate the Servicing Account at the termination of this Agreement in accordance with Section 9.01. The applicable Master Servicer shall pay or cause to be paid to the related Borrowers interest and other income, if any, earned on the investment of funds in Servicing Accounts maintained thereby, if and to the extent required by law or the terms of the related Mortgage Loan Documents. If a Master Servicer shall deposit in a Servicing Account maintained by it any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time withdraw such amount from such Servicing Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. Promptly after any Escrow Payments are received by the applicable Special Servicer from the Borrower under any Serviced Mortgage Loan or Serviced Pari Passu Companion Loan, and in any event within one Business Day after any such receipt, such Special Servicer shall remit such Escrow Payments to the applicable Master Servicer for deposit in the applicable Servicing Account(s).
REO Property (a) In the event the Trust Fund acquires ownership of any REO Property in respect of any Mortgage Loan, the deed or certificate of sale shall be issued to the Trustee, or to its nominee, on behalf of the Certificateholders. The Master Servicer shall use its reasonable best efforts to sell, or cause the applicable Servicer, to the extent provided in the applicable Servicing Agreement any REO Property as expeditiously as possible and in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the related Servicing Agreement, as applicable, but in all events within the time period, and subject to the conditions set forth in Article X hereof. Pursuant to its efforts to sell such REO Property, the Master Servicer shall protect and conserve, or cause the applicable Servicer to protect and conserve, such REO Property in the manner and to such extent required by the applicable Servicing Agreement, subject to Article X hereof.
