Usury Laws. This Security Instrument and the Note are subject to the express condition that at no time shall Borrower be obligated or required to pay interest on the Debt at a rate which could subject the holder of the Note to either civil or criminal liability as a result of being in excess of the maximum interest rate which Borrower is permitted by applicable law to contract or agree to pay. If by the terms of this Security Instrument or the Note, Borrower is at any time required or obligated to pay interest on the Debt at a rate in excess of such maximum rate, the rate of interest under the Security Instrument and the Note shall be deemed to be immediately reduced to such maximum rate and the interest payable shall be computed at such maximum rate and all prior interest payments in excess of such maximum rate shall be applied and shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of the principal balance of the Note. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Lender for the use, forbearance, or detention of the Debt shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated, and spread throughout the full stated term of the Note until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of the Debt does not exceed the maximum lawful rate of interest from time to time in effect and applicable to the Debt for so long as the Debt is outstanding.
Usury Laws. It is the intention of the Company and the Holder to conform strictly to all applicable usury laws now or hereafter in force, and any interest payable under this Note shall be subject to reduction to the amount not in excess of the maximum legal amount allowed under the applicable usury laws as now or hereafter construed by the courts having jurisdiction over such matters. The aggregate of all interest (whether designated as interest, service charges, points, or otherwise) contracted for, chargeable, or receivable under this Note shall under no circumstances exceed the maximum legal rate upon the unpaid principal balance of this Note remaining unpaid from time to time. If such interest does exceed the maximum legal rate, it shall be deemed a mistake and such excess shall be canceled automatically and, if theretofore paid, rebated to the Company or credited on the principal amount of this Note, or if this Note has been repaid, then such excess shall be rebated to the Company.
Usury Laws. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, (a) all agreements and communications between Borrower and Lender are hereby and shall automatically be limited so that, after taking into account all amounts deemed interest, the interest contracted for, charged or received by Lender shall never exceed the maximum lawful rate or amount, (b) in calculating whether any interest exceeds the lawful maximum, all such interest shall be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread over the full amount and term of all principal indebtedness of Borrower to Lender, and (c) if through any contingency or event, Lender receives or is deemed to receive interest in excess of the lawful maximum, any such excess shall be deemed to have been applied toward payment of the principal of any and all then outstanding indebtedness of Borrower to Lender, or if there is no such indebtedness, shall immediately be returned to Borrower.
Usury Laws. The parties intend to contract in strict compliance with the usury Laws of the State of California and, to the extent applicable, the U.S. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Operative Documents, LESSEE will not be obligated to pay Default Interest or other interest in excess of the maximum non-usurious interest rate, as in effect from time to time, which may by applicable Law be charged, contracted for, reserved, received or collected by LESSOR in connection with the Operative Documents. During any period of time in which the then-applicable highest lawful rate is lower than the Default Interest rate, Default Interest will accrue and be payable at such highest lawful rate; however, if at later times such highest lawful rate is greater than the Default Interest rate, then LESSEE will pay Default Interest at the highest lawful rate until the Default Interest which is paid by LESSEE equals the amount of interest that would have been payable in accordance with the interest rate set forth in Article 5.5.
Usury Laws. Regardless of any provisions contained in this Note, the Payee shall never be deemed to have contracted for or be entitled to receive, collect, or apply as interest on the Note, any amount in excess of the Maximum Rate, and, in the event Payee ever receives, collects, or applies as interest any such excess, such amount which would be excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the unpaid principal balance of this Note, and, if the principal balance of this Note is paid in full, then any remaining excess shall forthwith be paid to Maker. In determining whether or not the interest paid or payable under any specific contingency exceeds the highest lawful rate, Maker and Payee shall, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, (a) characterize any non-principal payment (other than payments which are expressly designated as interest payments hereunder) as an expense, fee, or premium, rather than as interest, (b) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effect thereof, and (c) spread the total amount of interest throughout the entire contemplated term of this Note so that the interest rate is uniform throughout such term.
Usury Laws. It is the intention of the parties hereto to comply strictly with all applicable usury laws. All agreements between Borrower and Lender, whether now existing or hereafter arising and whether written or oral, are hereby expressly limited so that in no contingency or event whatsoever, whether by reason of acceleration of the maturity hereof, or otherwise, shall the amount paid, or agreed to be paid to Lender for the use, forbearance, or detention of the money to be loaned hereunder or otherwise or for the payment or performance of any covenant or obligation contained herein or in any other document evidencing, securing, or pertaining to the indebtedness evidenced hereby, exceed the maximum amount permissible under applicable law. If from any circumstance whatsoever fulfillment of any provision hereof or of such other documents, at the time performance of such provision shall be due, shall involve transcending the limit of validity prescribed by law, then ipso facto, the obligation to be fulfilled shall be reduced to the limit of such validity, and if from any such circumstance Lender shall ever receive as interest or otherwise an amount which would exceed the highest lawful rate, such amount which would be excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the principal indebtedness of Borrower to Lender, and not to the payment of interest, or if such excessive interest exceeds the unpaid balance of principal hereof, such excess shall be refunded to
Usury Laws. The Borrowers and Lenders and all other parties to the Loan Documents intend to conform to and contract in strict compliance with all Applicable Usury Laws from time to time in effect. All agreements between the Borrowers and Lenders (or any other party liable with respect to any Obligations under the Loan Documents) are hereby limited by the provisions of this Section 12.16 which shall override and control all such agreements, whether now existing or hereafter arising. In no way, nor in any event or contingency (including but not limited to prepayment, default, demand for payment, or acceleration of the maturity of any Obligation), shall the interest taken, reserved, contracted for, charged, chargeable, or received under this Agreement, the Notes, any of the other Loan Documents, or otherwise, exceed the Highest Lawful Rate. If, from any possible construction of any document, interest would otherwise be payable in excess of the Highest Lawful Rate, any such construction shall be subject to the provisions of this Section and such document shall ipso facto be automatically reformed and the interest payable shall be automatically reduced to the Highest Lawful Rate, without the necessity of execution of any amendment or new document. If (a) the maturity of any Obligation is accelerated for any reason, (b) any Obligation is prepaid and as a result any amounts held to constitute interest are determined to be in excess of the Highest Lawful Rate, or (c) any Lender or any other holder of any or all of the Obligations shall otherwise collect moneys which are determined to constitute interest which would otherwise increase the interest on any or all of the Obligations to an amount in excess of the Highest Lawful Rate, then all such sums determined to constitute interest in excess of such legal limit shall, without penalty, be promptly applied to reduce the then outstanding principal of the related Obligations or, at such Lender’s or such holder’s option, promptly returned to the Borrowers or the other payor thereof upon such determination. In determining whether or not the interest paid or payable under any specific circumstance exceeds the Highest Lawful Rate, Lenders and the Borrowers (and any other payors thereof) shall to the greatest extent permitted under applicable law, (x) characterize any non-principal payment as an expense, fee or premium rather than as interest, (y) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effects thereof, and (z) amortize, prorate, allocat...
