d.                  The Seller may voluntarily repurchase Purchased Assets without penalty or premium on any Business Day by delivering to Administrative Agent a Request for Repurchase and Confirmation no more than once per week unless consented to in writing by Administrative Agent in its sole discretion.

The Administrative Agent shall deliver to the Seller a statement setting forth the amount and basis of determination of any Breakage Costs in such detail as determined by the Administrative Agent to be adequate, it being agreed that such statement and the method of its calculation shall be adequate and shall be conclusive and binding upon the Seller, absent manifest error.

a.                   On the beginning of each Pricing Period that a Transaction is outstanding, the Pricing Rate shall be reset and, unless otherwise agreed between Administrative Agent and Seller, the accrued and unpaid Price Differential shall be settled in cash on each related Price Differential Payment Date. Two (2) Business Days prior to the Price Differential Payment Date, Administrative Agent shall give Seller written or electronic notice of the amount of the Price Differential due on such Price Differential Payment Date. On the Price Differential Payment Date, Seller shall pay to Administrative Agent (to the extent not paid on such date through the payments required pursuant to Sections 7(d) or 7(e) hereof) the accrued but unpaid Price Differential for the benefit of Buyers for such Price Differential Payment Date (along with any other amounts to be paid pursuant to Section 7 and Section 34), by wire transfer in immediately available funds.

b.                  If Seller fails to pay all or part of the Price Differential by 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the related Price Differential Payment Date, with respect to any Purchased Asset, unless there exists sufficient funds in the Deposit Account, Seller shall be obligated to pay to Administrative Agent for the benefit of Buyers (in addition to, and together with, the amount of such Price Differential) interest on the unpaid Repurchase Price at a rate per annum equal to the Post Default Rate calculated from and after such Price Differential Payment Date and until the Price Differential is received in full by Administrative Agent for the benefit of Buyers or until such time that there are sufficient funds in the Deposit Account.

c.                   If prior to any Pricing Period, Administrative Agent determines that, by reason of circumstances affecting the relevant market, adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining LIBOR for such Pricing Period, Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to Seller, whereupon if Administrative Agent is also then converting the pricing rates or interest rates of similarly situated counterparties with similar assets in similar facilities, Pricing Rate for such Pricing Period, and for all subsequent Pricing Periods until such notice has been withdrawn by Administrative Agent, shall be an alternative per annum rate based on an index approximating the behavior of LIBOR, as determined by Administrative Agent.

6.                  Margin Maintenance

a.                   If at any time the Asset Value of any or all of the Purchased Assets subject to Transactions is less than the aggregate Purchase Price for such Purchased Asset or for the then outstanding Transactions, as applicable (a “Margin Deficit”), then, if such Margin Deficit is greater than the Permitted Amount, Administrative Agent may by notice to Seller require Seller to transfer to Administrative Agent for the benefit of Buyers cash in an amount equal to the Margin Deficit (such requirement, a “Margin Call”).

b.                  Notice delivered pursuant to Section 6(a) may be given by any written means.

The failure of Administrative Agent, on any one or more occasions, to exercise its rights hereunder, shall not change or alter the terms and conditions to which this Agreement is subject or limit the right of Administrative Agent to do so at a later date. Seller and Administrative Agent each agree that a failure or delay by Administrative Agent to exercise its rights hereunder shall not limit or waive Administrative Agent’s or Buyers’ rights under this Agreement or otherwise existing by law or in any way create additional rights for Seller.

c.                   In the event that a Margin Deficit exists with respect to any Purchased Asset, Administrative Agent may retain any funds received by it to which the Seller would otherwise be entitled hereunder, which funds (i) shall be held by Administrative Agent against the related Margin Deficit and (ii) shall be applied by Administrative Agent against the Purchase Price of any Purchased Asset for which the related Margin Deficit remains otherwise unsatisfied. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Administrative Agent retains the right, in its sole discretion, to make a Margin Call in accordance with the provisions of this Section 6.

d.                  Upon the occurrence of any Purchase Price Reset, Seller shall, unless waived in writing by Administrative Agent, on the following Business Day, remit to Administrative Agent an amount, if any (the “Reset Payment”) such that the then current Asset Value (calculated with the newly applicable Purchase Price Percentage) shall be greater than the Purchase Price then outstanding after application of such payment. Any such amount shall be applied by Administrative Agent to the Repurchase Price of each Purchased Asset pro-rata or as otherwise agreed by Administrative Agent and Seller. Such Reset Payment shall be deemed a margin payment or settlement payment hereunder.

7.                  Income Payments

a.                   The Seller shall cause the Servicer to deposit all Income into the Servicer Account pursuant to the terms of the Servicing Agreement.

b.                  The Deposit Account shall be established by the Seller in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Control Account Agreement concurrently with the execution and delivery of this Agreement by Seller and Administrative Agent.

26 

 

 

b.                  If any Buyer determines that due to the introduction of any change in, or the compliance by, such Buyer with (i) any eurocurrency reserve requirement or (ii) the interpretation of any law, regulation or any guideline or request from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law), (A) there shall be an increase in the cost to such Buyer in engaging in the present or any future Transactions, or (B) such Buyer shall be subject to any Taxes (other than (1) Indemnified Taxes, (2) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (3) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto, then Seller agrees to pay to such Buyer, from time to time, upon demand by such Buyer (with a copy to Custodian) the actual cost of additional amounts as specified by such Buyer to compensate such Buyer for such increased costs.

c.                   With respect to any Transaction, Administrative Agent and Buyers may conclusively rely upon, and shall incur no liability to Seller in acting upon, any request or other communication that Administrative Agent and Buyers reasonably believe to have been given or made by a person authorized to enter into a Transaction on Seller’s behalf, whether or not such person is listed on the certificate delivered pursuant to Section 10(a)(5) hereof. In each such case, Seller hereby waives the right to dispute Administrative Agent’s record of the terms of the Transaction Request and Confirmation, request or other communication.

d.                  Notwithstanding the assignment of the Program Agreements with respect to each Purchased Asset to Administrative Agent for the benefit of Buyers, Seller agrees and covenants with Administrative Agent and Buyers to enforce diligently Seller’s rights and remedies set forth in the Program Agreements.

e.                   Taxes.

(1)               Defined Terms. For purposes of this Section 11(e), the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.

 

(2)               Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of Seller or Guarantor under the Program Agreements shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law. If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable Withholding Agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Withholding Agent, then the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by Seller or Guarantor, as applicable, shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 11(e)) Administrative Agent receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.

(3)               Payment of Other Taxes. Seller shall timely pay or cause Guarantor to timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law any Other Taxes.

27 

 

 

(4)               Indemnification. Seller and Guarantor shall jointly and severally indemnify Administrative Agent or a Buyer, within ten (10) Business Days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 11(e)) payable or paid by Administrative Agent or such Buyer or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to Administrative Agent or such Buyer and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to Seller or Guarantor by Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(5)               Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by Seller or Guarantor to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 11(e), Seller shall deliver or cause Guarantor to deliver to Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent.

(6)               Status of Administrative Agent or Any Buyer. (i) If any Buyer or Buyer assignee is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Program Agreement, Administrative Agent shall cause each Buyer or Buyer assignee to deliver to Seller, at the time or times reasonably requested by Seller, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by Seller as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, Administrative Agent shall cause each Buyer and Buyer assignee, if reasonably requested by Seller, to deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by Seller as will enable Seller to determine whether or not such Buyer or Buyer assignee is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 11(e)(6)(ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D) below) shall not be required if in such Buyer’s or such Buyer’s assignee’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Buyer or such Buyer assignee to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Buyer or such Buyer assignee.

(ii) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that the Seller is a U.S. Person,

 

(A) If any Buyer or any Buyer assignee is a U.S. Person, such Buyer or such Buyer assignee shall deliver to Seller on or prior to the date on which such Buyer or such Buyer assignee becomes a party under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Seller), executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Buyer or such Buyer assignee is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;

 

(B) Any Foreign Buyer shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to Seller (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Buyer becomes a party under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Seller), whichever of the following is applicable:

 

28 

 

 

(i) In the case of a Foreign Buyer claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Program Agreement, executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E (as applicable) establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Program Agreement, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E (as applicable) establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;

 

(ii) executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI;

 

(iii) In the case of a Foreign Buyer claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit F-1 to the effect that such Foreign Buyer is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of Seller within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E (as applicable); or

 

(iv) to the extent a Foreign Buyer is not the beneficial owner, executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN, IRS Form W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit F-2 or Exhibit F-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Buyer is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Buyer are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Buyer may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit F-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;

 

(C) Any Foreign Buyer shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to Seller (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Buyer becomes a party under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Seller), executed originals of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit Seller to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

 

(D) If a payment made to any Buyer or Buyer assignee under any Program Agreement would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Buyer or Buyer assignee were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), Administrative Agent on behalf of such Buyer or such Buyer assignee shall deliver to Seller at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by Seller such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by Seller as may be necessary for Seller to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Buyer or such Buyer assignee has complied with such Buyer’s or such Buyer’s assignee’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

29 

 

 

Each Buyer or each Buyer assignee agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify Seller in writing of its legal inability to do so.

 

(7)               Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 11(e) (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 11(e)), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 11(e) with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (7) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (7), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (7) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

f.                   Each party’s obligations under this Section 11 shall survive any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Buyer or a Buyer assignee, the termination of the Transactions and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Program Agreement.

g.                   Each party to this Agreement acknowledges that it is its intent for purposes of U.S. federal, state, and local income and franchise taxes to treat each Transaction as indebtedness of Seller that is secured by the Purchased Assets, and the Purchased Assets as owned by Seller in the absence of an Event of Default by Seller. Buyers and Seller agree that they will treat and report for all tax purposes the Transactions entered into hereunder as one or more loans from any Buyer to Seller secured by the Purchased Assets, unless otherwise prohibited by law or upon a final determination by any taxing authority that the Transactions are not loans for tax purposes.

12.              Servicing

a.                   Seller, on Administrative Agent’s and Buyers’ behalf, shall contract with Servicer to, or if Seller is the Servicer, Seller shall, service the Purchased Assets pursuant to the Servicing Agreement, consistent with the degree of skill and care that Servicer customarily requires with respect to similar Purchased Assets owned or managed by it and in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices. The Servicing Agreement shall require, inter alia, that Servicer (i) comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations; (ii) maintain all state and federal licenses necessary for it to perform its servicing responsibilities hereunder; and (iii) not impair the rights of Administrative Agent or Buyers in any Purchased Assets or any payment thereunder. In addition, the Servicing Agreement shall require that the Servicer deposit all collections of Income (other than amounts deposited in escrow accounts pursuant to the Servicing Agreement) received by Servicer on account of the Purchased Assets in the Deposit Account no later than two (2) Business Days following receipt.

30 

 

 

b.                  Upon the occurrence of any of (i) an Event of Default hereunder or (ii) an event of default by Servicer under the Servicing Agreement (each a “Servicer Termination Event”), Administrative Agent shall have the right to immediately terminate the Servicer’s right to service the Purchased Assets without payment of any penalty or termination fee. Seller and Servicer shall cooperate in transferring the servicing of the Purchased Assets to a successor servicer appointed by Administrative Agent in its sole discretion.

c.                   If Seller should discover that, for any reason whatsoever, Servicer or any entity responsible for managing or servicing any Purchased Assets has failed to perform in all material respects any of the obligations of such entities with respect to the Purchased Assets, or that an event of default under the Servicing Agreement has occurred, Seller shall promptly notify Administrative Agent.

d.                  In the event that the Servicer is a master servicer of a Purchased Asset which is serviced by a Third Party Servicer, the Seller shall provide promptly to Administrative Agent a Servicer Notice and Acknowledgement addressed to and agreed to by the Third Party Servicer of the related Purchased Assets, advising such Third Party Servicer of such matters as Administrative Agent may reasonably request, including, without limitation, recognition by the master servicer of Administrative Agent’s and Buyers’ interest in such Purchased Assets and the Third Party Servicer’s agreement that upon receipt of notice of an Event of Default from Administrative Agent, it will follow the instructions of Administrative Agent with respect to the Purchased Assets and any related Income with respect thereto.

e.                   Seller shall not employ sub-servicers (other than the Servicer or Affiliates thereof or Third Party Servicers) to service the Purchased Assets without the prior written approval of Administrative Agent, which such approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. If the Purchased Assets are serviced, in whole or in part, by a sub-servicer (i) Servicer shall nevertheless remain primarily liable to Administrative Agent for the servicing of the Purchased Assets under the Servicing Agreement; and (ii) any agreement with a sub-servicer shall entitle Administrative Agent to terminate such sub-servicer without fee or penalty in the event that Servicer is replaced subject to the terms of the applicable sub-servicing agreement.

f.                   Seller shall cause Servicer to provide to Administrative Agent, electronically, in a format mutually acceptable to Administrative Agent and Seller, by no later than the Reporting Date, the Servicing Report.

g.                   For the avoidance of doubt, Seller retains no rights to the servicing other than Seller’s rights under the Servicing Agreement. As such, Seller expressly acknowledges that the Purchased Assets are sold to Administrative Agent for the benefit of Buyers on a “servicing released” basis with such servicing retained by the Servicer.

13.              Representations and Warranties

a.                   Seller represents and warrants to Administrative Agent and Buyers as of the date hereof and as of each Purchase Date for any Transaction and at all times while the Program Agreements are in full force and effect and/or any Transaction under the Agreement is outstanding that:

(1)               Seller Existence. Seller has been duly organized and is validly existing as a limited liability company in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware.

31 

 

 

(2)               Licenses. Seller is duly licensed or is otherwise qualified in each jurisdiction in which it transacts business for the business which it conducts and is not in default of any federal, state or local laws, rules and regulations unless, in any instance, the failure to take such action or to so comply or such default is not reasonably likely (either individually or in the aggregate) to cause a Material Adverse Effect. Seller has the requisite power and authority and legal right to originate and purchase Eligible Assets (as applicable) and to own, sell and grant a lien on all of its right, title and interest in and to the Eligible Assets, and to execute and deliver, engage in the transactions contemplated by, and perform and observe the terms and conditions of, this Agreement, each Program Agreement and any Transaction Request and Confirmation.

(3)               Power. Seller has all requisite corporate or other power, and has all governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals necessary to own its assets and carry on its business as now being or as proposed to be conducted, except where the lack of such licenses, authorizations, consents, and approvals would not be reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(4)               Due Authorization. Seller has all necessary corporate or other power, authority and legal right to execute, deliver, and perform its obligations under each of the Program Agreements, as applicable. This Agreement, any Transaction Request and Confirmation and the Program Agreements have been (or, in the case of Program Agreements and any Transaction Request and Confirmation not yet executed, will be) duly authorized, executed and delivered by Seller, all requisite or other corporate action having been taken, and each is valid, binding and enforceable against Seller in accordance with its terms except as such enforcement may be affected by bankruptcy, by other insolvency laws, or by general principles of equity.

(5)               Reserved.

(6)               Event of Default. There exists no Event of Default under Section 15(b) hereof, which default gives rise to a right to accelerate indebtedness as referenced in Section 15(b) hereof, under any mortgage, borrowing agreement or other instrument or agreement pertaining to indebtedness for borrowed money or to the repurchase of mortgage loans or securities.

(7)               Solvency. Seller is solvent and will not be rendered insolvent by any Transaction and, after giving effect to such Transaction, will not be left with an unreasonably small amount of capital with which to engage in its business. Seller neither intends to incur, nor believes that it has incurred, debts beyond its ability to pay such debts as they mature and is not contemplating the commencement of insolvency, bankruptcy, liquidation or consolidation proceedings or the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, conservator, trustee or similar official in respect of such entity or any of its assets. The amount of consideration being received by Seller upon the sale of the Purchased Assets to Administrative Agent for the benefit of Buyers constitutes reasonably equivalent value and fair consideration for such Purchased Assets. Seller is not transferring any Purchased Assets with any intent to hinder, delay, or defraud any of its creditors.

32 

 

 

(8)               No Conflicts. The execution, delivery, and performance by Seller of this Agreement, any Transaction Request and Confirmation hereunder, and the Program Agreements do not conflict with any term or provision of the organizational documents of Seller or any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment, writ, injunction, or decree applicable to Seller of any court, regulatory body, administrative agency, or governmental body having jurisdiction over Seller, which conflict would have a Material Adverse Effect and will not result in any violation of any such mortgage, instrument, agreement, or obligation to which Seller is a party.

(9)               True and Complete Disclosure. All information, reports, exhibits, schedules, financial statements, or certificates of Seller or any Affiliate thereof or any of their officers furnished or to be furnished to Administrative Agent or Buyers in connection with the initial or any ongoing due diligence of Seller or any Affiliate or officer thereof, or the negotiation, preparation, or delivery of the Program Agreements are true and complete and do not omit to disclose any material facts necessary to make the statements herein or therein, in light of the circumstances in which they are made, not misleading. All financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(10)           Approvals. No consent, approval, authorization or order of, registration or filing with, or notice to any governmental authority or court is required under applicable law in connection with the execution, delivery and performance by Seller of this Agreement, any Transaction Request and Confirmation and the Program Agreements.

(11)           Litigation. There is no action, proceeding or investigation pending with respect to which Seller has received service of process or, to the best of Seller’s knowledge, threatened against it before any court, administrative agency, or other tribunal (A) asserting the invalidity of this Agreement, any Transaction, Transaction Request and Confirmation, or any Program Agreement, (B) seeking to prevent the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, any Transaction Request and Confirmation or any Program Agreement, (C) makes a claim individually in an amount greater than $500,000 or in an aggregate amount greater than $500,000, (D) which requires filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission in accordance with the 1934 Act or any rules thereunder, or (E) which might materially and adversely affect the validity of the Mortgage Loans or the performance by it of its obligations under, or the validity or enforceability of, this Agreement, any Transaction Request and Confirmation or any Program Agreement.

(12)           Material Adverse Change. There has been no change having a Material Adverse Effect.

(13)           Ownership. Upon payment of the Purchase Price and the filing of the financing statement and delivery of the Asset Files to the Custodian and the Custodian’s receipt of the related Purchased Asset Schedule, Administrative Agent shall become the sole owner of the Purchased Assets and related Repurchase Assets, free and clear of all liens and encumbrances.

33 

 

 

(14)           Taxes. Seller is a U.S. Person. Seller has timely filed all income and other material tax returns required to be filed by it, and has timely paid all income and other material Taxes required to be paid by it (whether or not such Taxes are shown as due on such returns), other than Taxes that are being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and for which adequate reserves have been made in accordance with GAAP. There are no Liens for Taxes on any of Seller’s assets or income, other than statutory Liens for Taxes not yet due and payable and with respect to which adequate reserves have been made in accordance with GAAP.

(15)           Investment Company. Seller is not required to register as an “investment company”, or a company “controlled” by an “investment company,” within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

(16)           Chief Executive Office; Jurisdiction of Organization. On the Effective Date, Seller’s chief executive office, is, and has been, located at c/o InPoint Commercial Real Estate Income, Inc., 375 Park Avenue, 25th Floor, New York, New York 10152. On the Effective Date, Seller’s jurisdiction of organization is Delaware. Seller shall provide Administrative Agent with thirty (30) days’ advance notice of any change in Seller’s principal office or place of business or jurisdiction. Seller has no trade name. During the preceding five years, Seller has not been known by or done business under any other name, corporate or fictitious, and has not filed or had filed against it any bankruptcy receivership or similar petitions nor has it made any assignments for the benefit of creditors.

For the avoidance of doubt and without limiting the generality of Section 6 hereof or the definitions of “Market Value” or “Asset Value” hereof, Administrative Agent’s approval of any amendment, modification, or waiver shall not preclude Administrative Agent’s ability to re-determine Market Value of any Purchased Asset as a result of such amendment, modification, or waiver; provided that any such approval and re-determination of Market Value shall in no way limit the Administrative Agent’s right to determine Market Value in the manner and at the times otherwise permitted under the Program Agreements.

In the event that an Event of Default shall have occurred and is continuing:

a.                   Administrative Agent may, at its option (which option shall be deemed to have been exercised immediately upon the occurrence of an Act of Insolvency of Seller, Guarantor, or any of their respective Affiliates), declare an Event of Default to have occurred hereunder and, upon the exercise or deemed exercise of such option, the Repurchase Date for each Transaction hereunder shall, if it has not already occurred, be deemed immediately to occur (except that, in the event that the Purchase Date for any Transaction has not yet occurred as of the date of such exercise or deemed exercise, such Transaction shall be deemed immediately canceled). Administrative Agent shall (except upon the occurrence of an Act of Insolvency of Seller, Guarantor or any of their respective Affiliates) give notice to Seller of the exercise of such option as promptly as practicable.

42 

 

 

b.                  If Administrative Agent exercises or is deemed to have exercised the option referred to in subparagraph (a) of this Section, (i) Seller’s obligations in such Transactions to repurchase all Purchased Assets, at the Repurchase Price therefor on the Repurchase Date determined in accordance with subparagraph (a) of this Section, shall thereupon become immediately due and payable, (ii) all Income paid after such exercise or deemed exercise shall be retained by Administrative Agent and applied, in Administrative Agent’s sole discretion, to the aggregate unpaid Repurchase Prices for all outstanding Transactions and any other amounts owing by Seller hereunder, and (iii) Seller shall immediately deliver to Administrative Agent the Asset Files relating to any Purchased Assets subject to such Transactions then in Seller’s possession or control.

c.                   Administrative Agent also shall have the right to obtain physical possession, and to commence an action to obtain physical possession, of all Records and files of Seller relating to the Purchased Assets and all documents relating to the Purchased Assets (including, without limitation, any legal, credit or servicing files with respect to the Purchased Assets) which are then or may thereafter come in to the possession of Seller or any third party acting for Seller. To obtain physical possession of any Purchased Assets held by Custodian, Administrative Agent shall present to Custodian a Trust Receipt. Without limiting the rights of Administrative Agent hereto to pursue all other legal and equitable rights available to Administrative Agent for Seller’s or Guarantor’s failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement, Seller acknowledges and agrees that the remedy at law for any failure to perform obligations hereunder would be inadequate and Administrative Agent shall be entitled to specific performance, injunctive relief, or other equitable remedies in the event of any such failure. The availability of these remedies shall not prohibit Administrative Agent from pursuing any other remedies for such breach, including the recovery of monetary damages.

d.                  Administrative Agent shall have the right to direct all servicers then servicing any Purchased Assets to remit all collections thereon to Administrative Agent, and if any such payments are received by Seller, Seller shall not commingle the amounts received with other funds of Seller and shall promptly pay them over to Administrative Agent. Administrative Agent shall also have the right to terminate any one or all of the servicers then servicing any Purchased Assets with or without cause. In addition, Administrative Agent shall have the right to immediately sell the Purchased Assets and liquidate all Repurchase Assets. Such disposition of Purchased Assets may be, at Administrative Agent’s option, on either a servicing-released or a servicing-retained basis. Administrative Agent shall not be required to give any warranties as to the Purchased Assets with respect to any such disposition thereof. Administrative Agent may specifically disclaim or modify any warranties of title or the like relating to the Purchased Assets. The foregoing procedure for disposition of the Purchased Assets and liquidation of the Repurchase Assets shall not be considered to adversely affect the commercial reasonableness of any sale thereof. Seller agrees that it would not be commercially unreasonable for Administrative Agent to dispose of the Purchased Assets or the Repurchase Assets or any portion thereof by using Internet sites that provide for the auction of assets similar to the Purchased Assets or the Repurchase Assets, or that have the reasonable capability of doing so, or that match buyers and sellers of assets. Administrative Agent shall be entitled to place the Purchased Assets in a pool for issuance of mortgage-backed securities at the then-prevailing price for such securities and to sell such securities for such prevailing price in the open market. Administrative Agent shall also be entitled to sell any or all of such Purchased Assets individually for the prevailing price. Administrative Agent shall also be entitled, in its sole discretion to elect, in lieu of selling all or a portion of such Purchased Assets, to give the Seller credit for such Purchased Assets and the Repurchase Assets in an amount equal to the Market Value of the Purchased Assets against the aggregate unpaid Repurchase Price and any other amounts owing by the Seller hereunder.

43 

 

 

e.                   Upon the happening of one or more Events of Default, Administrative Agent may apply any proceeds from the liquidation of the Purchased Assets and Repurchase Assets to the Repurchase Prices hereunder and all other Obligations in the manner Administrative Agent deems appropriate in its sole discretion and subject to the Administration Agreement.

f.                   Seller shall be liable to Administrative Agent and each Buyer for (i) the amount of all reasonable legal or other expenses (including, without limitation, all costs and expenses of Administrative Agent and each Buyer in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement or any other agreement evidencing a Transaction, whether in action, suit or litigation or bankruptcy, insolvency, or other similar proceeding affecting creditors’ rights generally, further including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel (including the costs of internal counsel of Administrative Agent and Buyers) incurred in connection with or as a result of an Event of Default, (ii) damages in an amount equal to the cost (including all fees, expenses and commissions) of entering into replacement transactions and entering into or terminating hedge transactions in connection with or as a result of an Event of Default, and (iii) any other loss, damage, cost or expense directly arising or resulting from the occurrence of an Event of Default in respect of a Transaction.

g.                   To the extent permitted by applicable law, Seller shall be liable to Administrative Agent and each Buyer for interest on any amounts owing by Seller hereunder, from the date Seller becomes liable for such amounts hereunder until such amounts are (i) paid in full by Seller or (ii) satisfied in full by the exercise of Administrative Agent’s and Buyers’ rights hereunder. Interest on any sum payable by Seller under this Section 16(g) shall be at a rate equal to the Post Default Rate.

h.                  Administrative Agent shall have, in addition to its rights hereunder, any rights otherwise available to it under any other agreement or applicable law.

i.                    Administrative Agent may exercise one or more of the remedies available to Administrative Agent immediately upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and, except to the extent provided in subsections (a) and (d) of this Section, at any time thereafter without notice to Seller. All rights and remedies arising under this Agreement as amended from time to time hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies which Administrative Agent may have.

j.                    Administrative Agent may enforce its rights and remedies hereunder without prior judicial process or hearing, and Seller hereby expressly waives any defenses Seller might otherwise have to require Administrative Agent to enforce its rights by judicial process. Seller also waives any defense (other than a defense of payment or performance) Seller might otherwise have arising from the use of nonjudicial process, enforcement and sale of all or any portion of the Repurchase Assets, or from any other election of remedies. Seller recognizes that nonjudicial remedies are consistent with the usages of the trade, are responsive to commercial necessity and are the result of a bargain at arm’s length.

k.                  Administrative Agent shall have the right to perform due diligence with respect to Seller and the Purchased Assets, which review shall be at the expense of Seller.

l.                    The Seller recognizes that the Administrative Agent may be unable to effect a public sale of any or all of the Purchased Assets. The Seller acknowledges and agrees that any such private sale may result in prices and other terms less favorable to the Administrative Agent than if such sale were a public sale and, notwithstanding such circumstances, agrees that any such private sale shall be deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner.

44 

 

 

m.                Nothing contained in the Agreement shall obligate Administrative Agent to segregate any Purchased Assets delivered to Administrative Agent by Seller. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in the Agreement, in no event shall the Purchased Assets remain in the custody of Seller or any Affiliate of Seller.

In furtherance, and not by limitation of, the foregoing, it is acknowledged that each counterparty under a Repledge Transaction (a “Repledgee”), is a repledgee as contemplated by Sections 9-207 and 9-623 of the UCC (and the relevant Official Comments thereunder). Administrative Agent and Buyers are each hereby authorized to share any information delivered hereunder with the Repledgee.

Administrative Agent, Buyers, and Seller acknowledge that, and have entered hereunto, and will enter into each Transaction hereunder, in consideration of and in reliance upon the fact that, all Transactions hereunder constitute a single business and contractual relationship and have been made in consideration of each other. Accordingly, each of Administrative Agent, Buyers, and Seller agrees (i) to perform all of its obligations in respect of each Transaction hereunder, and that a default in the performance of any such obligations shall constitute a default by it in respect of all Transactions hereunder and (ii) that payments, deliveries and other transfers made by either of them in respect of any Transaction shall be deemed to have been made in consideration of payments, deliveries, and other transfers in respect of any other Transactions hereunder, and the obligations to make any such payments, deliveries and other transfers may be applied against each other and netted.

21.              Entire Agreement; Severability

This Agreement and the Administration Agreement shall supersede any existing agreements between the parties containing general terms and conditions for repurchase transactions. Each provision and agreement herein shall be treated as separate and independent from any other provision or agreement herein and shall be enforceable notwithstanding the unenforceability of any such other provision or agreement.

22.              Non assignability

The Program Agreements are not assignable by Seller or Guarantor. Subject to Section 36 (Acknowledgement of Assignment and Administration of Repurchase Agreement) hereof, Administrative Agent and Buyers may from time to time assign all or a portion of their rights and obligations under this Agreement and the Program Agreements pursuant to the Administration Agreement; provided, however that Administrative Agent shall maintain, solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of Seller, for review by Seller upon written request, a register of assignees (the “Register”) and a copy of an executed assignment and acceptance by Administrative Agent and assignee (“Assignment and Acceptance”), specifying the percentage or portion of such rights and obligations assigned.  The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Seller, Guarantor, Administrative Agent and Buyers shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the preceding sentence as a Buyer hereunder. Upon such assignment and recordation in the Register, (a) such assignee shall be a party hereto and to each Program Agreement to the extent of the percentage or portion set forth in the Assignment and Acceptance, and shall succeed to the applicable rights and obligations of Administrative Agent and Buyers hereunder, as applicable, and (b) Administrative Agent and Buyers, as applicable, shall be released from its obligations hereunder and under the Program Agreements. Any assignment hereunder shall be deemed a joinder of such assignee as a Buyer hereto. Unless otherwise stated in the Assignment and Acceptance, Seller shall continue to take directions solely from Administrative Agent unless otherwise notified by Administrative Agent in writing. Administrative Agent and Buyers may distribute to any prospective or actual assignee any document or other information delivered to Administrative Agent and/or Buyers by Seller.

49 

 

 

Any Buyer may sell participations to one or more Persons in or to all or a portion of its rights and obligations under the Agreement; provided, however, (i) such Buyer’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged; (ii) such Buyer shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations; and (iii) the Seller shall continue to deal solely and directly with the Administrative Agent and Buyers in connection with such Buyer’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Program Agreements, and whereby any such participant shall be subject to the obligations of Section 11(e) hereof.

Seller and Guarantor agree that each participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 4(e), Section 11(b), and Section 11(e) (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 11(e) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 11(e)(6) shall be delivered to the participating Buyer)) to the same extent as if it were a Buyer and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to this Section 22; provided that such participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 11(b) or Section 11(e), with respect to any participation, than its participating Buyer would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a change in any applicable law or in the interpretation or application thereof by a Governmental Authority that occurs after the participant acquired the applicable participation. To the extent permitted by applicable law, each Participant shall also be entitled to the benefits of Section 23 to the same extent as if it had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to this Section 22.

The Administrative Agent and each Buyer may, in connection with any assignment or participation or proposed assignment or participation pursuant to this Section 22, disclose to the assignee or participant or proposed assignee or participant, as the case may be, any information relating to Seller, Guarantor or to any aspect of the Transactions that has been furnished to Administrative Agent and Buyers by or on behalf of Seller; provided that such assignee or participant agrees to hold such information subject to the confidentiality provisions of this Agreement.

23.              Set-off

In addition to any rights and remedies of Administrative Agent and Buyers hereunder and by law, Administrative Agent and Buyers shall have the right, without prior notice to Seller or Guarantor, any such notice being expressly waived by Seller or Guarantor to the extent permitted by applicable law, upon any amount becoming due and payable by Seller or Guarantor hereunder (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) to set-off and appropriate and apply against such amount from Seller, Guarantor or any Affiliate thereof to a Buyer or any of its Affiliates any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other credits, indebtedness or claims, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, at any time held or owing by a Buyer or any Affiliate thereof to or for the credit or the account of Seller or Guarantor or any Affiliate thereof. Administrative Agent agrees promptly to notify Seller and Guarantor after any such set-off and application made by Administrative Agent; provided, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.

24.              Binding Effect; Governing Law; Jurisdiction

a.                   This Agreement shall be binding and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Seller acknowledges that the obligations of Administrative Agent and Buyers hereunder or otherwise are not the subject of any guaranty by, or recourse to, any direct or indirect parent or other Affiliate of Administrative Agent and Buyers. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, AND GOVERNED BY, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO THE CONFLICT OF LAWS PRINCIPLES THEREOF (OTHER THAN SECTION 5-1401 OF THE NEW YORK GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW).

b.                  EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES TRIAL BY JURY. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY CONSENTS TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF ANY COURT IN THE BOROUGH OF MANHATTAN IN NEW YORK CITY OR IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE PROGRAM AGREEMENTS IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY SUBMITS TO, AND WAIVES ANY OBJECTION THEY MAY HAVE TO, EXCLUSIVE PERSONAL JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN ANY COURT IN THE BOROUGH OF MANHATTAN IN NEW YORK CITY OR IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK, WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE PROGRAM AGREEMENTS.

25.              No Waivers, Etc.

No express or implied waiver of any Event of Default by either party shall constitute a waiver of any other Event of Default and no exercise of any remedy hereunder by any party shall constitute a waiver of its right to exercise any other remedy hereunder. No modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement and no consent by any party to a departure herefrom shall be effective unless and until such shall be in writing and duly executed by both of the parties hereto. Without limitation on any of the foregoing, the failure to give a notice pursuant to Section 6(a), 6(b), 16(a) or otherwise, will not constitute a waiver of any right to do so at a later date.

26.              Intent

a.                   The parties recognize that each Transaction is a “repurchase agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101 of Title 11 of the United States Code, as amended, a “securities contract” as that term is defined in Section 741 of Title 11 of the United States Code, as amended, and a “master netting agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101(38A)(A) of the Bankruptcy Code, that all payments hereunder are deemed “margin payments” or “settlement payments” as defined in Title 11 of the United States Code, and that the pledge of the Repurchase Assets constitutes “a security agreement or other arrangement or other credit enhancement” that is “related to” the Agreement and Transactions hereunder within the meaning of Sections 101(38A)(A), 101(47)(A)(v) and 741(7)(A)(xi) of the Bankruptcy Code. Seller, Administrative Agent and Buyers further recognize and intend that this Agreement is an agreement to provide financial accommodations and is not subject to assumption pursuant to Bankruptcy Code Section 365(a).

51 

 

 

b.                  Administrative Agent’s or a Buyer’s right to liquidate the Purchased Assets delivered to it in connection with the Transactions hereunder or to accelerate or terminate this Agreement or otherwise exercise any other remedies pursuant to Section 16 hereof is a contractual right to liquidate, accelerate or terminate such Transaction as described in Bankruptcy Code Sections 555, 559 and 561; any payments or transfers of property made with respect to this Agreement or any Transaction to satisfy a Margin Deficit or Purchase Price Reset shall be considered a “margin payment” as such term is defined in Bankruptcy Code Section 741(5).

c.                   The parties agree and acknowledge that if a party hereto is an “insured depository institution,” as such term is defined in the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, as amended (“FDIA”), then each Transaction hereunder is a “qualified financial contract,” as that term is defined in FDIA and any rules, orders or policy statements thereunder (except insofar as the type of assets subject to such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable).

d.                  It is understood that this Agreement constitutes a “netting contract” as defined in and subject to Title IV of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (“FDICIA”) and each payment entitlement and payment obligation under any Transaction hereunder shall constitute a “covered contractual payment entitlement” or “covered contractual payment obligation”, respectively, as defined in and subject to FDICIA (except insofar as one or both of the parties is not a “financial institution” as that term is defined in FDICIA).

e.                   This Agreement is intended to be a “repurchase agreement” and a “securities contract,” within the meaning of Section 101(47), Section 555, Section 559 and Section 741 under the Bankruptcy Code.

f.                   Each party agrees that this Agreement is intended to create mutuality of obligations among the parties, and as such, the Agreement constitutes a contract which (i) is between all of the parties and (ii) places each party in the same right and capacity.

27.              Disclosure Relating to Certain Federal Protections

The parties acknowledge that they have been advised that:

a.                   in the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a broker or dealer registered with the SEC under Section 15 of the 1934 Act, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation has taken the position that the provisions of the SIPA do not protect the other party with respect to any Transaction hereunder;

b.                  in the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a government securities broker or a government securities dealer registered with the SEC under Section 15C of the 1934 Act, SIPA will not provide protection to the other party with respect to any Transaction hereunder; and

c.                   in the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a financial institution, funds held by the financial institution pursuant to a Transaction hereunder are not a deposit and therefore are not insured by the FDIC or the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, as applicable.

52 

 

 

28.              Power of Attorney

Seller hereby authorizes Administrative Agent to file such financing statement or statements relating to the Repurchase Assets without Seller’s signature thereon as Administrative Agent, at its option, may deem appropriate. Seller hereby appoints Administrative Agent as Seller’s agent and attorney-in-fact to (i) execute any such financing statement or statements in Seller’s name and to perform all other acts which Administrative Agent deems appropriate to perfect and continue its ownership interest in and/or the security interest granted hereby, if applicable, and to protect, preserve and realize upon the Repurchase Assets, including, but not limited to, the right to endorse notes, complete blanks in documents, transfer servicing, and sign assignments on behalf of Seller as its agent and attorney-in-fact and (ii) to pay or discharge Taxes and Liens levied or placed on or threatened against the Repurchase Assets. This agency and power of attorney is coupled with an interest and is irrevocable without Administrative Agent’s consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the power of attorney hereby granted may be exercised only during the occurrence and continuance of any Event of Default hereunder. Seller shall pay the filing costs for any financing statement or statements prepared pursuant to this Section 28. In addition the foregoing, the Seller agrees to execute a Power of Attorney, in the form of Exhibit C hereto, to be delivered on the date hereof.

29.              Buyers May Act Through Administrative Agent

Each Buyer has designated the Administrative Agent under the Administration Agreement for the purpose of performing any action hereunder.

30.              Indemnification; Obligations; Recourse

a.                   Each of Seller and Guarantor agrees to hold Administrative Agent, Buyers and each of their respective Affiliates and their officers, directors, employees, agents and advisors (each, an “Indemnified Party”) harmless from and indemnify each Indemnified Party (and will reimburse each Indemnified Party as the same is incurred) against all actual, out-of-pocket, and not imputed, liabilities, losses, damages (other than consequential, special, or punitive damages), judgments, costs, and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees, and expenses of counsel) of any kind which may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against any Indemnified Party relating to or arising out of this Agreement, any Transaction Request and Confirmation, any Program Agreement or any transaction contemplated hereby or thereby resulting from anything other than the Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Seller and Guarantor also agree to reimburse each Indemnified Party for all reasonable expenses in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement and the exercise of any right or remedy provided for herein, any Transaction Request and Confirmation and any Program Agreement, including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel. Seller’s and Guarantor’s agreements in this Section 30 shall survive the payment in full of the Repurchase Price and the expiration or termination of this Agreement. Each of Seller and Guarantor hereby acknowledges that its obligations hereunder are recourse obligations of Seller and Guarantor are not limited to recoveries each Indemnified Party may have with respect to the Purchased Assets. Seller and Guarantor also agrees not to assert any claim against Administrative Agent, each Buyer or any of its Affiliates, or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, attorneys, and agents, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages arising out of or otherwise relating to the facility established hereunder, the actual or proposed use of the proceeds of the Transactions, this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated thereby. This Section 30(a) shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent liabilities, losses, damages, costs, or expenses arising from any non-Tax claim. THE FOREGOING INDEMNITY AND AGREEMENT NOT TO ASSERT CLAIMS EXPRESSLY APPLIES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TO THE NEGLIGENCE (BUT NOT GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT) OF THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES.

53 

 

 

b.                  Without limitation to the provisions of Section 4, if any payment of the Repurchase Price of any Transaction is made by Seller other than on the then scheduled Repurchase Date thereto as a result of an acceleration of the Repurchase Date pursuant to Section 16 or for any other reason, Seller shall, upon demand by Administrative Agent, pay to Administrative Agent on behalf of Buyers an amount sufficient to compensate Buyers for any actual, out-of-pocket, and not imputed, losses, costs or expenses that they may reasonably incur as of a result of such payment.

c.                   Without limiting the provisions of Section 30(a) hereof, if Seller fails to pay when due any costs, expenses or other amounts payable by it under this Agreement, including, without limitation, fees and expenses of counsel and indemnities, such amount may be paid on behalf of Seller by Administrative Agent (subject to reimbursement by Seller), in its sole discretion.

d.                  The obligations of the Seller from time to time to pay the Repurchase Price, the Price Differential, and all other amounts due and Obligations owing under this Repurchase Agreement shall be full recourse obligations of the Seller.

31.              Counterparts

This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, and all such counterparts shall together constitute one and the same instrument. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement in Portable Document Format (PDF) or by facsimile shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed original counterpart of this Agreement.

32.              Confidentiality

This Agreement and its terms, provisions, supplements and amendments, and notices hereunder, are proprietary to Administrative Agent and Buyers and shall be held by Seller and Guarantor in strict confidence and shall not be disclosed to any third party without the written consent of Administrative Agent except for (i) disclosure to Administrative Agent’s and Buyers’, Seller’s or Guarantor’s direct and indirect Affiliates and Subsidiaries, attorneys or accountants, but only to the extent such disclosure is necessary and such parties agree to hold all information in strict confidence, (ii) disclosure required by law, rule, regulation or order of a court or other regulatory body.

Administrative Agent, Buyers, Seller and Guarantor consent to the admissibility of such tape recordings in any court, arbitration, or other proceedings. The parties agree that a duly authenticated transcript of such a tape recording shall be deemed to be a writing conclusively evidencing the parties’ agreement.

34.              Periodic Due Diligence Review

Seller acknowledges that Administrative Agent and Buyers have the right to perform continuing due diligence reviews with respect to the Seller and the Purchased Assets, for purposes of verifying compliance with the representations, warranties, and specifications and updating Market Value determinations, made hereunder, or otherwise, and Seller agrees that upon reasonable (but no less than one (1) Business Day) prior notice unless an Event of Default shall have occurred, in which case no notice is required, to Seller, Administrative Agent, Buyers, or their authorized representatives will be permitted during normal business hours to examine, inspect, and make copies and extracts of, the Asset Files and any and all documents, data, records, agreements, instruments or information relating to such Purchased Assets in the possession or under the control of Seller, Guarantor, and/or the Custodian. Seller also shall make available to Administrative Agent and Buyers a knowledgeable financial or accounting officer for the purpose of answering questions respecting the Asset Files and the Purchased Assets.

55

Seller hereby acknowledges and agrees to the joinder of such Additional Buyers and the assignments and the terms and provisions set forth in the Administration Agreement. The Administrative Agent shall administer the provisions of this Agreement, subject to the terms of the Administration Agreement for the benefit of the Buyers and any Repledgees, as applicable. For the avoidance of doubt, all payments, notices, communications and agreements pursuant to this Agreement shall be delivered to, and entered into by, the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Buyers and/or the Repledgees, as applicable.

SCHEDULE 1(a)

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

RE: PURCHASED ASSETS CONSISTING OF COMMERCIAL MORTGAGE LOANS

 

Seller represents and warrants to Administrative Agent, with respect to each Purchased Asset which is a Commercial Mortgage Loan, that as of the Purchase Date and as of each date while the Program Agreements and the related Transaction hereunder is in full force and effect, the following are true and correct in all material respects. With respect to those representations and warranties which are made to the knowledge of Seller or to the best of Seller’s knowledge or if there is any limitation as to the scope any representation by a knowledge qualifier, if it is discovered by either Seller or Administrative Agent that the substance of such representation and warranty is inaccurate, notwithstanding the lack of knowledge with respect to the substance of such representation and warranty, such inaccuracy shall be deemed a breach of the applicable representation and warranty.

(a)                The Commercial Mortgage Loan is a performing mortgage loan, and is secured by a first priority security interest in the Mortgaged Property.

(b)               Such Commercial Mortgage Loan is secured by a Mortgaged Property that is a commercial (including retail, office or industrial) and/or multifamily property that is an Income Producing Property.

(c)                Such Commercial Mortgage Loan complies in all material respects with, or is exempt from, all requirements of federal, state or local law relating to such Commercial Mortgage Loan.

(d)               Immediately prior to the sale, transfer and assignment to Administrative Agent thereof, Seller had good and marketable title to, and was the sole owner and holder of, such Commercial Mortgage Loan, and Seller is transferring such Commercial Mortgage Loan free and clear of any and all liens, pledges, encumbrances, charges, security interests or any other ownership interests of any nature encumbering such Commercial Mortgage Loan, and no Mortgage Note or Mortgage is subject to any assignment, participation, or pledge. Upon consummation of the transfers to the Administrative Agent that are contemplated to occur in respect of such Commercial Mortgage Loan on the Purchase Date therefor, Seller will have validly and effectively conveyed to the Administrative Agent all legal and beneficial interest in and to such Commercial Mortgage Loan free and clear of any pledge, lien, encumbrance or security interest.

(e)                No fraudulent acts were committed by Seller in connection with the Seller’s acquisition or origination of such Commercial Mortgage Loan nor were any fraudulent acts committed by any other Person in connection with the origination of such Commercial Mortgage Loan nor were any fraudulent acts committed by any other Person after the date of origination with respect to any Commercial Mortgage Loan.

(f)                The information pertaining to each Commercial Mortgage Loan contained in each of the Complete Submission is true and correct in all material respects as of the Purchase Date and contains all information required by this Agreement to be contained therein.

(g)                Seller is not a party to any document, instrument or agreement, and there is no document that by its terms modifies or affects the rights and obligations of any holder of such Commercial Mortgage Loan and Seller has not consented to any material change or waiver to any term or provision of any such document, instrument or agreement and no such change or waiver exists.

Schedule 1(a)-1 

 

 

(h)               Such Commercial Mortgage Loan is presently outstanding, the proceeds thereof have been fully and properly disbursed and there is no requirement for any future advances thereunder (except (x) with respect to a Commercial Mortgage Loan with a Future Funding Obligation and (y) in those cases where the full amount of the Commercial Mortgage Loan has been disbursed but a portion thereof is being held in escrow or reserve accounts pending the satisfaction of certain conditions relating to leasing, repairs or other matters with respect to the related Mortgaged Property, the Mortgagor or other considerations determined by Seller or originator to merit such holdback).

(i)                 Seller has full right, power and authority to sell and assign such Commercial Mortgage Loan and such Commercial Mortgage Loan and any related Mortgage Note has not been cancelled, satisfied or rescinded in whole or part nor has any instrument been executed that would effect a cancellation, satisfaction or rescission thereof.

(j)                 Other than consents and approvals obtained as of the related Purchase Date or those already granted in the related Mortgage and/or Mortgage Note, no consent or approval by any Person is required in connection with (i) Seller’s sale, and Administrative Agent’s acquisition of, such Commercial Mortgage Loan, (ii) Administrative Agent’s exercise of any rights or remedies in respect of such Commercial Mortgage Loan or (iii) Administrative Agent’s sale, pledge or other disposition of such Commercial Mortgage Loan. No third party holds any “right of first refusal”, “right of first negotiation”, “right of first offer”, purchase option, or other similar rights of any kind with respect to the Commercial Mortgage Loan, and no other impediment exists to any such transfer or exercise of rights or remedies.

(k)               No consent, approval, authorization or order of, or registration or filing with, or notice to, any court or governmental agency or body having jurisdiction or regulatory authority (other than those that have been obtained or made) is required for any transfer, pledge, or assignment by the holder of such Commercial Mortgage Loan.

(l)                 Seller does not have notice or knowledge of any outstanding liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind related to such Commercial Mortgage Loan, for which the holder of such Commercial Mortgage Loan is or may become obligated, or with respect to which such Commercial Mortgage Loan is or may become subject.

(m)             Each related Mortgage Note, Mortgage, Assignment of Leases (if a document separate from the Mortgage) and other agreement executed by the related Mortgagor in connection with such Commercial Mortgage Loan is the legal, valid and binding obligation of the related Mortgagor (subject to any non-recourse provisions therein and any applicable state anti-deficiency, one action or market value limit deficiency legislation), enforceable in accordance with its terms, except (i) that certain provisions contained in such Commercial Mortgage Loan documents are or may be unenforceable in whole or in part under any applicable state or federal laws, but neither the application of any such laws to any such provision nor the inclusion of any such provisions renders any of the Commercial Mortgage Loan documents invalid as a whole and such Commercial Mortgage Loan documents taken as a whole are enforceable to the extent necessary and customary for the practical realization of the rights and benefits afforded thereby and (ii) as such enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, reorganization, moratorium, redemption, liquidation or other laws relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, or by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law). The related Mortgage Note and Mortgage contain no provision limiting the right or ability of Seller to assign, transfer and convey the related Commercial Mortgage Loan to any other Person. With respect to any Mortgaged Property that has tenants, there exists as either part of the Mortgage or as a separate document, an assignment of leases.

Schedule 1(a)-2 

 

 

(n)               There is no offset, defense, counterclaim, abatement or right to rescission with respect to any related Mortgage Note, Mortgage or other agreements executed in connection therewith.

(o)               Seller has delivered to Administrative Agent or its designee the original Mortgage Note(s) made in respect of such Commercial Mortgage Loan, together with an original endorsement thereof executed by Seller in blank and the related Asset File.

(p)               Each related Assignment of Mortgage and assignment of Assignment of Leases from Seller in blank constitutes the legal, valid and binding first priority assignment from Seller (assuming the insertion of the Administrative Agent’s name), except as such enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, reorganization, moratorium, redemption, liquidation or other laws relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, or by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law). Each Mortgage and Assignment of Leases is freely assignable without the consent of any Person.

(q)               Such Commercial Mortgage Loan is secured by one or more Mortgages and each such Mortgage with respect to a Commercial Mortgage Loan is a valid and enforceable first priority lien on the related Mortgaged Property subject only to the exceptions set forth in paragraph (m) above and the following title exceptions (each such title exception, a “Title Exception”, and collectively, the “Title Exceptions”): (i) the lien of current real property taxes, water charges, sewer rents and assessments not yet due and payable, (ii) covenants, conditions and restrictions, rights of way, easements and other matters of public record, none of which, individually or in the aggregate, materially and adversely interferes with the current use of the Mortgaged Property or the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage or with the Mortgagor’s ability to pay its obligations under the Commercial Mortgage Loan when they become due or materially and adversely affects the value of the Mortgaged Property, (iii) the exceptions (general and specific) and exclusions set forth in the applicable policy described in paragraph (u) below or appearing of record, none of which, individually or in the aggregate, materially and adversely interferes with the current use of the Mortgaged Property or the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage or with the Mortgagor’s ability to pay its obligations under the Commercial Mortgage Loan when they become due or materially and adversely affects the value of the Mortgaged Property, (iv) other matters to which like properties are commonly subject, none of which, individually or in the aggregate, materially and adversely interferes with the current use of the Mortgaged Property or the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage or with the Mortgagor’s ability to pay its obligations under the Commercial Mortgage Loan when they become due or materially and adversely affects the value of the Mortgaged Property, (v) the rights of tenants (as tenants only) under leases (including subleases) pertaining to the related Mortgaged Property, and (vi) if such Commercial Mortgage Loan is cross-collateralized with any other Commercial Mortgage Loan, the lien of the Mortgage for such Commercial Mortgage Loan, none of which, individually or in the aggregate, materially and adversely interferes with the current use of the Mortgaged Property or the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage or with the Mortgagor’s ability to pay its obligations under the Commercial Mortgage Loan when they become due or materially and adversely affects the value of the Mortgaged Property. Except with respect to cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted Commercial Mortgage Loans that are sold to Administrative Agent pursuant to this Agreement and disclosed to Administrative Agent in writing, and as provided below, there are no mortgage loans that are senior or pari passu with respect to the related Mortgaged Property or such Commercial Mortgage Loan.

Schedule 1(a)-3 

 

 

(r)                 Uniform Commercial Code financing statements have been filed and/or recorded (or, if not filed and/or recorded, have been submitted in proper form for filing and recording), in all public places to the extent necessary, to perfect a valid first priority security interest in all items of personal property located on the Mortgaged Property that are owned by the Mortgagor and either (i) are reasonably necessary to operate the Mortgaged Property or (ii) are (as indicated in the appraisal obtained in connection with the origination of the related Commercial Mortgage Loan) material to the value of the Mortgaged Property (other than any personal property subject to a purchase money security interest or a sale and leaseback financing arrangement permitted under the terms of such Commercial Mortgage Loan or any other personal property leases applicable to such personal property), to the extent perfection may be effected pursuant to applicable law by recording or filing, and the Mortgages, security agreements, chattel mortgages or equivalent documents related to and delivered in connection with the related Commercial Mortgage Loan establish and create a valid and enforceable lien and priority security interest on such items of personalty except as such enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, reorganization, moratorium, redemption, liquidation or other laws relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditor’s rights generally, or by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law). Notwithstanding the foregoing, no representation is made as to perfection of security interests in personal property to the extent action, possession or control beyond the filing of the Uniform Commercial Code financing statements is required in order to effect such perfection.

(s)                All real estate taxes and governmental assessments, or installments thereof, which would be a lien on the Mortgaged Property and that have become delinquent in respect of the Mortgaged Property have been paid, or an escrow of funds in an amount sufficient to cover such payments and reasonably estimated interest and penalties, if any, has been established in connection with the Mortgage Loan. For purposes of this representation and warranty, real estate taxes and governmental assessments and installments thereof shall not be considered delinquent until the earlier of (i) the date on which interest and/or penalties would first be payable thereon and (ii) the date on which enforcement action is entitled to be taken by the related taxing authority.

(t)                 (i) An engineering report or property condition assessment and (ii) an appraisal (each such appraisal, a “Qualified Appraisal”) of the related Mortgaged Property signed by a qualified appraiser who had no interest, direct or indirect, in the Mortgaged Property or in any loan made on the security thereof; and whose compensation was and is not affected by the approval or disapproval of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, and such appraisal and appraiser both satisfied either (A) the requirements of the “Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice” as adopted by the Appraisal Standards Board of the Appraisal Foundation, or (B) the guidelines in Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act or 1989, in either case as in effect on the date such Commercial Mortgage Loan was originated, were prepared in connection with the origination of each Commercial Mortgage Loan no more than twelve months prior to the origination date of such Commercial Mortgage Loan. The related Mortgaged Property is free and clear of any material damage (other than deferred maintenance for which adequate escrows were established at origination) that would affect materially and adversely the value of such Mortgaged Property as security for the Commercial Mortgage Loan and there is no proceeding pending or threatened for the total or partial condemnation of such Mortgaged Property.

Schedule 1(a)-4 

 

 

(u)               The lien of each related Mortgage as a first priority lien in the original principal amount of such Commercial Mortgage Loan after all advances of principal is insured by an ALTA lender’s title insurance policy (or a binding, irrevocable and unconditional commitment therefor), or with respect to any Commercial Mortgage Loan for which the related Mortgaged Property is located in California a CLTA lender’s title insurance policy (or a binding, irrevocable and unconditional commitment therefor), or its equivalent as adopted in the applicable jurisdiction (the “Title Policy”) in the original principal amount of such Commercial Mortgage Loan (or with respect to a Commercial Mortgage Loan secured by multiple properties, an amount equal to at least the allocated loan amount with respect to the Title Policy for each such property) after all advances of principal (including any advances held in escrow or reserves), that insures for the benefit of the owner of the indebtedness secured by the Mortgage, the first priority lien of the Mortgage, which lien is subject only to Title Exceptions; the mortgagee or its successors or assigns is the sole named insured of such Title Policy; such Title Policy is assignable without consent of the insurer and will inure to the benefit of the mortgagee of record; such Title Policy is in full force and effect upon the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; all premiums thereon have been paid; no claims have been made under such Title Policy and no circumstance exists which would impair or diminish the coverage of such Title Policy. The insurer issuing such Title Policy is (x) a nationally recognized title insurance company and (y) qualified to do business in the jurisdiction in which the related Mortgaged Property is located to the extent required; such Title Policy contains no material exclusions for, or affirmatively insures (except for any Mortgaged Property located in a jurisdiction where such insurance is not available) (i) access to a public road or (ii) against any loss due to encroachments of any material portion of the improvements thereon. Neither Seller nor any other holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, has done, by act or omission, anything that would materially impair the coverage under such Title Policy.

(v)               Each related Mortgaged Property is, and is required pursuant to the related Mortgage to be, insured by a property insurance policy providing coverage for loss in accordance with coverage found under a “special cause of loss form” or “all risk form” that includes replacement cost valuation issued by an insurer meeting the requirements of the related Mortgage and meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements, is in an amount (subject to a customary deductible) at least equal to the lesser of (i) the replacement cost of improvements, furniture, fixtures, furnishings and equipment owned by Mortgagor and located on such Mortgaged Property, or (ii) the outstanding principal balance of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, and in any event, the amount necessary to prevent operation of any co-insurance provisions; and is also covered by business interruption or rental loss insurance, in an amount (subject to the customary deductible and except where an applicable tenant lease does not permit the tenant to abate rent under any circumstances) at least equal to twelve (12) months of operations of the related Mortgaged Property, all of which was in full force and effect with respect to the related Mortgaged Property; and all insurance coverage required under the related Commercial Mortgage Loan documents, which insurance covers such risks and is in such amounts as are customarily acceptable to prudent commercial and multifamily mortgage lending institutions lending on the security of property comparable to the related Mortgaged Property in the jurisdiction in which such Mortgaged Property is located, is in full force and effect with respect to the related Mortgaged Property; all premiums due and payable are current and have been paid (or have been financed or are being paid currently in installments); and no notice of termination or cancellation with respect to any such insurance policy has been received by Seller; and except for certain amounts not greater than amounts which would be considered prudent by an institutional commercial and/or multifamily mortgage lender with respect to a similar Commercial Mortgage Loan and which are set forth in the related Commercial Mortgage Loan documents, any insurance proceeds in respect of a casualty loss or condemnation awards, will be applied either (i) to the repair or restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property, with respect to all property losses (and, with respect to all insurance proceeds, all property losses in excess of 5% (or such other fixed

Schedule 1(a)-5 

 

 

percentage as shall be expressly indicated in the Commercial Mortgage Loan documents for the related Mortgaged Property) of the then outstanding principal amount of the related Commercial Mortgage Loan, the mortgagee (or a trustee appointed by it) having the right to hold and disburse such proceeds as the repair or restoration progresses, or (ii) the reduction of the outstanding principal balance of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, subject in either case to requirements with respect to leases at the related Mortgaged Property and to other exceptions customarily provided for by prudent institutional lenders for similar loans. The Mortgaged Property is also covered by comprehensive general liability insurance against claims for personal and bodily injury, death or property damage occurring on, in or about the related Mortgaged Property, in an amount customarily required by prudent institutional lenders. An architectural or engineering consultant has performed an analysis of the Mortgaged Properties located in seismic zone 3 or 4 in order to evaluate the structural and seismic condition of such property, for the sole purpose of assessing the probable maximum loss (“PML”) for the Mortgaged Property in the event of an earthquake. In such instance, the PML was based on a 475 year lookback with a 10% probability of exceedance in a fifty (50) year period. If the resulting report concluded that the PML would exceed 20% of the amount of the replacement costs of the improvements, earthquake insurance on such Mortgaged Property was obtained by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements. If the Mortgaged Property is located in Florida or within twenty-five (25) miles of the coast of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina or South Carolina such Mortgaged Property is insured by windstorm and/or windstorm related perils and/or “named storms” insurance issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements or endorsement covering damage from windstorm and/or windstorm related perils and/or named storms in an amount at least equal to the lesser of (i) the outstanding principal balance of such Commercial Mortgage Loan, (ii) 100% of the full insurable value, or 100% of the replacement cost, of the improvements located on the related Mortgaged Property, or (iii) such other amounts (expressly indicated in the Commercial Mortgage Loan documents) as shall not be less than limits which would be considered prudent by an institutional commercial and/or multifamily mortgage lender with respect to a Commercial Mortgage Loan in the amount of the Commercial Mortgage Loan and secured by property similar to the Mortgaged Property.

The insurance policies contain a standard mortgagee clause naming the mortgagee of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, its successors and assigns as loss payee, in the case of a property insurance policy, and additional insured in the case of a liability insurance policy and provide that they are not terminable without thirty (30) days prior written notice to such mortgagee (or, with respect to non-payment, ten (10) days prior written notice to such mortgagee) or such lesser period as prescribed by applicable law. Each Mortgage requires that the Mortgagor maintain insurance as described above or permits the mortgagee of the Commercial Mortgage Loan to require insurance as substantially described above, and permits such mortgagee to purchase such insurance at the Mortgagor’s expense if Mortgagor fails to do so.

(w)              (i) Other than payments due but not yet thirty (30) days or more delinquent, there is no material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration existing under the related Mortgage or the related Mortgage Note or the related Commercial Mortgage Loan documents, and no event has occurred (other than payments due but not yet delinquent) which, with the passage of time or with notice and the expiration of any grace or cure period, would constitute a material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration, and (ii) Seller has not waived any material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration under such Mortgage or Mortgage Note or the related Commercial Mortgage Loan documents, which in the case of either (i) or (ii), materially and adversely affects the value of the Commercial Mortgage Loan or the value, use or operation of the related Mortgaged Property. Pursuant to the terms of the related Mortgage or the related Mortgage Note and other documents in the related Commercial Mortgage Loan documents no Person or party other than the holder or Servicer of such Mortgage Note may declare any event of default or accelerate the related indebtedness under such Mortgage, Mortgage Note or Commercial Mortgage Loan documents.

Schedule 1(a)-6 

 

 

(x)               The Commercial Mortgage Loan is not past due in respect of any scheduled payment or part thereof and such Commercial Mortgage Loan has not, since origination, been 30 days or more past due in respect of any scheduled payment or part thereof, and the Commercial Mortgage Loan documents do not provide for any grace period in excess of ten (10) calendar days with respect to delinquent scheduled payments.

(y)               No related Mortgage provides for or permits, without the prior written consent of the holder of the Mortgage Note, the related Mortgaged Property to secure any other promissory note or obligation except as expressly described in such Mortgage.

(z)                The Commercial Mortgage Loan is a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3)(A) of the Code (but determined without regard to the rule in Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(f)(2) that treats certain defective mortgage loans as qualified mortgages), and, accordingly, either: (A) such Commercial Mortgage Loan is secured by an interest in real property (within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Sections 1.856-3(c) and 1.856-3(d)) having a fair market value (1) at the date the Commercial Mortgage Loan was originated at least equal to 80% of the adjusted issue price of the Commercial Mortgage Loan on such date or (2) at the Purchase Date at least equal to 80% of the adjusted issue price of the Commercial Mortgage Loan on such date, provided that for purposes hereof, the fair market value of the real property interest must first be reduced by (x) the amount of any lien on the real property interest that is senior to the Commercial Mortgage Loan and (y) a proportionate amount of any lien on the real property interest that is in parity with the Commercial Mortgage Loan; or (B) substantially all of the proceeds of such Commercial Mortgage Loan were used to acquire, improve or protect the real property which served as the only security for such Commercial Mortgage Loan (other than a recourse feature or other third-party credit enhancement within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(a)(1)(ii)). If the Commercial Mortgage Loan was “significantly modified” prior to the Purchase Date so as to result in a taxable exchange under Section 1001 of the Code, it either (x) was so modified as a result of the default or reasonably foreseeable default of such Commercial Mortgage Loan or (y) meets the requirements described in sub-clause (A)(1) above (substituting the date of the last such modification for the date the Commercial Mortgage Loan was originated) or sub-clause (A)(2) above. Any prepayment premium and yield maintenance charges applicable to the Commercial Mortgage Loan constitute “customary prepayment penalties” within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-1(b)(2). All terms used in this paragraph shall have the same meanings as set forth in the related Treasury Regulations.

(aa)            Except as set forth on the Phase I Environmental Report with respect to the Mortgaged Property delivered to Administrative Agent, (i) there is no material and adverse environmental condition or circumstance affecting the Mortgaged Property; (ii) Seller has no knowledge of any material violation of any applicable Environmental Law with respect to the Mortgaged Property; (iii) neither Seller nor the Mortgagor has taken any actions which would cause the Mortgaged Property not to be in compliance with all applicable Environmental Laws; (iv) the Mortgage Loan documents require the Mortgagor to comply with all Environmental Laws; and (v) each Mortgagor has agreed to indemnify the mortgagee for any losses resulting from any material, adverse environmental condition or failure of the Mortgagor to abide by such Environmental Laws or has provided environmental insurance. A Phase I environmental site assessment (or update of a previous Phase I and/or Phase II site assessment) and, with respect to certain Commercial Mortgage Loans, a Phase II environmental site assessment (collectively, an “Environmental Site Assessment”) meeting the American Society for Testing and Materials (“ASTM”)

Schedule 1(a)-7 

 

 

requirements conducted by a reputable environmental consultant in connection with such Commercial Mortgage Loan within twelve (12) months prior to its origination date (or an update of a previous Environmental Site Assessment was prepared), and such Environmental Site Assessment (i) did not identify the existence of recognized Environmental Conditions at the related Mortgaged Property or the need for further investigation, or (ii) if the existence of an Environmental Condition or need for further investigation was indicated in any such Environmental Site Assessment, then at least one of the following statements is true: (A) 100% or more of the funds reasonably estimated by a reputable environmental consultant to be sufficient to cover the estimated cost to cure any material noncompliance with applicable Environmental Laws or the Environmental Condition has been escrowed by the related Mortgagor and is held or controlled by the related mortgagee; (B) if the only Environmental Condition relates to the presence of asbestos-containing materials, radon in indoor air, lead based paint or lead in drinking water, the only recommended action in the Environmental Site Assessment is the institution of an operations or maintenance plan, and such a plan has been required to be instituted by the related Mortgagor that, based on the Environmental Site Assessment, can reasonably be expected to mitigate the identified risk; (C) the Environmental Condition identified in the related environmental report was remediated or abated in all material respects prior to the Purchase Date, and, if and as appropriate, a no further action or closure letter was obtained from the applicable governmental regulatory authority (or the environmental issue affecting the related Mortgaged Property was otherwise listed by such governmental authority as “closed” or a reputable environmental consultant has concluded that no further action is required); (D) an environmental policy or a lender’s pollution legal liability insurance policy meeting the requirements set forth below that covers liability for the identified circumstance or condition was obtained from an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements; (E) a party not related to the Mortgagor was identified as the responsible party for such condition or circumstance and such responsible party has financial resources reasonably estimated to be adequate to address the situation; or (F) a party related to the Mortgagor having financial resources reasonably estimated to be adequate to address the situation is required to take action.

The Commercial Mortgage Loan documents require the Mortgagor to pay all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Mortgagor with respect to any transfer, assumption or encumbrance requiring lender’s approval.

(ff)             Except as set forth in the related Complete Submission, the terms of the related Commercial Mortgage Loan documents have not been waived, modified, altered, satisfied, impaired, canceled, subordinated or rescinded in any manner which materially interferes with the security intended to be provided by such Commercial Mortgage Loan documents, and no such waiver, modification, alteration, satisfaction, impairment, cancellation, subordination or rescission has occurred since the date upon which the Complete Submission for such Commercial Mortgage Loan were delivered to Administrative Agent or its designee.

(vv)           The Commercial Mortgage Loan documents for each Commercial Mortgage Loan provide (or have substantially similar language providing) that such Commercial Mortgage Loan (i) becomes full recourse to the Mortgagor and a guarantor (which is a natural person or persons, or an entity or entities, distinct from the Mortgagor (but may be affiliated with the Mortgagor) that has assets other than equity in the related Mortgaged Property that are not de minimis) in any of the following events: (A) if any voluntary petition for bankruptcy, insolvency, dissolution or liquidation pursuant to federal bankruptcy law, or any similar federal or state law, shall be filed by the Mortgagor; (B) Mortgagor or guarantor shall have colluded with (or, alternatively, solicited or caused to be solicited) other creditors to cause an involuntary bankruptcy filing with respect to the Mortgagor; (C) voluntary transfers of either the Mortgaged Property or equity interests in Mortgagor made in violation of the Commercial Mortgage Loan documents; (D) any transfer in violation of transfer restrictions set forth in the related Commercial Mortgage Loan documents; or (E) after an event of default under the underlying Mortgage Loan (after the expiration of any applicable notice or cure periods, if any) that results in lender accelerating the indebtedness, and after exercising remedies against the Mortgaged Property, Mortgagor or any guarantor

(ww)        Subject to applicable law and the exceptions set forth in paragraph (m) and upon possession of the Mortgaged Property as required under applicable state law, any Assignment of Leases set forth in the Mortgage or separate from the related Mortgage and related to and delivered in connection with such Commercial Mortgage Loan establishes and creates a valid, subsisting and enforceable lien and security interest in the related Mortgagor’s interest in all leases, subleases, licenses or other agreements with Mortgagor pursuant to which any Person is entitled to occupy, use or possess all or any portion of the real property.

(xx)           If such Commercial Mortgage Loan contains a provision for any defeasance of mortgage collateral, such Commercial Mortgage Loan (A) permits defeasance (1) no earlier than the later of two years after (x) the date of origination of such Commercial Mortgage Loan or (y) the “startup day” (within the meaning of Section 860(G)(a)(9) of the Code) of the REMIC holding such Commercial Mortgage Loan and (2) only with substitute collateral constituting “government securities” within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(a)(8)(ii)(A) in an amount sufficient to make all scheduled payments under the Mortgage Note through the related maturity date (or first day of the open period) and (B) provides that such Commercial Mortgage Loan was not originated with the intent to collateralize a REMIC offering with obligations that are not real estate mortgages.

Schedule 1(a)-13 

 

 

(yy)           The originator of such Commercial Mortgage Loan was authorized to do business in the jurisdiction in which the related Mortgaged Property is located at all times when it originated and held the Commercial Mortgage Loan, and as of the date that such entity held the Mortgage Note, each holder of the Mortgage Note was authorized to originate, acquire and/or hold (as applicable) the Mortgage Note in the jurisdiction in which each related Mortgaged Property is located, or the failure to be so authorized does not materially and adversely affect the enforceability of such Commercial Mortgage Loan.

(fff)          The Mortgaged Property is a real property type that is an office building, a retail property, a Multi-Family Property, a self-storage property, a manufactured housing community, a hotel, an industrial property or other type of Mortgaged Property approved by Administrative Agent.

(ggg)         With respect to any Commercial Mortgage Loan where the Commercial Mortgage Loan is secured by a leasehold estate under a Ground Lease in whole or in part, and the related Mortgage does not also encumber the related lessor’s fee interest in such Mortgaged Property, based upon the terms of the Ground Lease and any estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor in favor of Seller, its successors and assigns, Seller represents and warrants that:

(i)     The Ground Lease or a memorandum regarding such Ground Lease has been duly recorded or submitted for recordation in a form that is acceptable for recording in the applicable jurisdiction. The Ground Lease or an estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor permits the interest of the lessee to be encumbered by the related Mortgage (or, if consent of the lessor thereunder is required, it has been obtained prior to the Purchase Date) and does not restrict the use of the related Mortgaged Property by such lessee, its successors or assigns in a manner that would materially and adversely affect the security provided by the related Mortgage. No material change in the terms of the Ground Lease has occurred since the origination of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, except as reflected in any written instruments which are included in the related Asset File.

(ii)   The lessor under such Ground Lease has agreed in a writing included in the related Asset File (or in such Ground Lease) that the Ground Lease may not be amended or modified, or canceled or terminated by agreement of lessor and lessee, without the prior written consent of the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, and any such action without such consent is not binding on the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, its successors or assigns, except termination or cancellation if (i) an event of default occurs under the Ground Lease, (ii) notice thereof is provided to the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan and (iii) such default is curable by the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan as provided in the Ground Lease but remains uncured beyond the applicable cure period.

(iii) Such Ground Lease is in full force and effect, there is no material default under such Ground Lease, and there is no event which, with the passage of time or with notice and the expiration of any grace or cure period, would constitute a material default under such Ground Lease.

(iv) The Ground Lease or ancillary agreement between the lessor and the lessee requires the lessor to give notice of any default by the lessee to the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan. The Ground Lease or ancillary agreement further provides that no notice given is effective against the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan unless a copy has been given to the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan in a manner described in the Ground Lease or ancillary agreement.

(v)   The Ground Lease (i) is not subject to any liens or encumbrances superior to, or of equal priority with, the Mortgage, subject, however, to only the ground lessor’s fee interest and the Title Exceptions or (ii) is subject to a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement to which the mortgagee of the lessor’s fee interest in the Mortgaged Property is subject.

(vi) The holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan is permitted a reasonable opportunity (including, where necessary, sufficient time to gain possession of the interest of the lessee under the Ground Lease) to cure any curable default under such Ground Lease after the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan’s receipt of notice of any default before the lessor thereunder may terminate such Ground Lease.

Schedule 1(a)-15 

 

 

(vii)        Such Ground Lease has an original term (together with any extension options, whether or not currently exercised, set forth therein all of which can be exercised by the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan if the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan acquires the lessee’s rights under the Ground Lease) that extends not less than forty (40) years beyond the loan closing date of such Commercial Mortgage Loan.

(viii)      Under the terms of such Ground Lease and/or in any writing included in the related Asset File, including any estoppel or consent letter received by the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan from the lessor, and the related Mortgage, taken together, any related insurance proceeds or condemnation award allocable to Ground Lessee’s interest (other than a de minimis amount for minor casualties in respect of a total or substantially total loss or taking) will be applied either to the repair or restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property, with the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan or a trustee appointed by it having the right to hold and disburse such proceeds as repair or restoration progresses, or to the payment or defeasance of the outstanding principal balance of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, together with any accrued interest (except in cases where a different allocation would not be viewed as commercially unreasonable by any commercial mortgage lender, taking into account the relative duration of the Ground Lease and the related Mortgage and the ratio of the market value of the related Mortgaged Property to the outstanding principal balance of such Commercial Mortgage Loan).

(ix) Provided that the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan cures any defaults which are susceptible to being cured, the ground lessor has agreed to enter into a new lease with holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan upon termination of the Ground Lease for any reason, including rejection of the Ground Lease in a bankruptcy proceeding.

(x)   The Ground Lease does not place commercially unreasonable restrictions on the identity of the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, and the Ground Lease is assignable to the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan and its successors and assigns without the consent of the lessor thereunder (provided that proper notice is delivered to the extent required in accordance with such Ground Lease), and in the event it is so assigned, it is further assignable by the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan and its successors and assigns without the consent of (but with prior notice to) the lessor.

(xi) There are no commercially unreasonable restrictions on the subletting of such Mortgaged Property in such Ground Lease.

(xii)        In the case of a total or substantially total taking or loss, under the terms of such Ground Lease and/or in any writing included in the related Asset File, including any estoppel or consent letter received by the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan from the lessor, and the related Mortgage, taken together, any related insurance proceeds or condemnation award allocable to Ground Lessee’s interest (other than a de minimis amount for minor casualties in respect of a total or substantially total loss or taking) in respect of a total or substantially total taking or loss to the extent not applied to the repair or restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property, with the holder of the Commercial Mortgage Loan or a trustee appointed by it having the right to hold and disburse such proceeds as repair or restoration progresses, will be applied first to the payment or defeasance of the outstanding principal balance of the Commercial Mortgage Loan, together with any accrued interest (except in cases where a different allocation would not be viewed as commercially unreasonable by any commercial mortgage lender, taking into account the relative duration of the Ground Lease and the related Mortgage and the ratio of the market value of the related Mortgaged Property to the outstanding principal balance of such Commercial Mortgage Loan).

Schedule 1(a)-16 

 

 

(hhh)       The Mortgagor under such Commercial Mortgage Loan is not an Affiliate of Seller.

(iii)             Except as disclosed in the Summary Diligence Materials delivered to the Administrative Agent and previous intercompany transfers, no Commercial Mortgage Loan has been acquired by an Affiliate of Seller other than a direct parent of Seller.

(jjj)             The Mortgagor is an entity organized under the laws of a state of the United States of America, the District of Columbia or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Except as disclosed in writing to Administrative Agent, no Commercial Mortgage Loan has a Mortgagor that is an affiliate of another Mortgagor under another Commercial Mortgage Loan that is also a Purchased Asset.

(lll)             There exists as part of the related Asset File an Assignment of Leases (either as a separate instrument or incorporated into the related Mortgage). Subject to the Title Exceptions, each related Assignment of Leases creates a valid collateral assignment of, or a valid lien or security interest in, rents and certain rights under the related lease or leases, subject only to a license granted to the related Mortgagor to exercise certain rights and to perform certain obligations of the lessor under such lease or leases, including the right to operate the related leased property, except as the enforcement thereof may be limited by the exceptions in paragraph (m). The related Mortgage or related Assignment of Leases, subject to applicable law, provides that, upon an event of default under the Commercial Mortgage Loan, a receiver is permitted to be appointed for the collection of rents or for the related mortgagee to enter into possession to collect the rents or for rents to be paid directly to the mortgagee.

(mmm) The related special-form all-risk insurance policy and business interruption policy (issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements) do not specifically exclude Acts of Terrorism, as defined in the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, as amended by the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2007 (collectively referred to as “TRIA”), from coverage, or if such coverage is excluded, it is covered by a separate terrorism insurance policy. With respect to each Commercial Mortgage Loan, the related Commercial Mortgage Loan documents do not expressly waive or prohibit the mortgagee from requiring coverage for Acts of Terrorism, as defined in TRIA, or damages related thereto; provided, however, that if TRIA or a similar or subsequent statute is not in effect, then, provided that terrorism insurance is commercially available, the Mortgagor under each Commercial Mortgage Loan is required to carry terrorism insurance, but in such event the Mortgagor shall not be required to spend on terrorism insurance coverage more than 200% of the amount of the insurance premium that is payable at such time in respect of the property and business interruption/rental loss insurance required under the related Asset File (without giving effect to the cost of terrorism and earthquake components of such casualty and business interruption/rental loss insurance), and if the cost of terrorism insurance exceeds such amount, the Mortgagor is required to purchase the maximum amount of terrorism insurance available with funds equal to such amount.

(nnn)       Pursuant to the terms of the Commercial Mortgage Loan documents, Seller satisfied any transfer conditions or requirements (or such conditions or requirements were validly waived by any requisite parties) in the Commercial Mortgage Loan documents with respect to the pledge of the Commercial Mortgage Loan to the Administrative Agent and the transfer of the Commercial Mortgage Loan to Administrative Agent.

Schedule 1(a)-17

(qqq)       Reserved.
