  be held by, the Mortgagee in trust to pay said ground rents, premiums, water rates, taxes and special assessments.

No amount applied to the reduction of the principal amount due in accordance with (1) shall be considered an optional prepayment as the term is used in this mortgage and the note secured hereby, nor relieve the Mortgagor from making regular monthly payments commencing on the first day of the first month following the date of receipt of

11.   That it will not permit or suffer the use of any of the property for any purpose other than that for which the same is now agreed upon to be used; nor will it permit to suffer any alteration of or addition to the buildings or improvements hereafter constructed in or upon said property without the consent of the Mortgagee.

12.   That should any default be made in the covenants of this mortgage, the Mortgagee may cause the abstract or abstracts of title and the tax histories of said premises to be certified to date, or may procure new abstracts of title and tax histories or title search in case none were furnished to the Mortgagee, and may pay therefor such sums as it may deem to be necessary to be paid therefor.

13.   That it will pay to the Mortgagee forthwith the amounts of all sums of money which the Mortgagee, shall pay or expend pursuant to the provisions, or any of them, including any amount required to pay mortgage insurance not provided for by payments made by the Mortgagor hereinbefore contained, together with interest, upon each of said amounts until paid from the time of the payment thereof at the rate of Five and fifty-five one-hundredths per centum (5.55%) per annum, and such payments shall be a further lien on the premises under this mortgage.

16.   That should any default be made in the payment of principal or interest or of any sum payable under subparagraphs (a) or (b) above, which is not made good before the due date of the next such payment, or should default be made in the performance of any other covenant of this mortgage or the note secured hereby or any part thereof, when the same is payable or the time of performance has arrived, as above provided, then all the remainder of the aforesaid sum with all sums due hereunder shall at the option of the Mortgagee without notice become immediately payable thereafter, although the period above limited for the payment thereof may not have expired, anything hereinbefore or in said note contained to the contrary notwithstanding, and any failure to exercise said option shall not constitute a waiver of the right to exercise the same at any other time.

17.   That no sale of the premises hereby mortgaged and no forbearances on the part of the Mortgagee and no extension of the time for the payment of the debt hereby secured given by the Mortgagee shall operate to release, discharge, modify, change or affect the original liability of the Mortgagor herein either in whole or in part.

18.   That upon default being made in the payment of the sums of money herein agreed to be paid or in the performance of any of the covenants or agreements herein contained according to the terms hereof or of the note secured hereby the Mortgagee is hereby authorized and empowered to sell or cause to be sold the property hereby mortgaged, and to convey the same to the purchaser, pursuant to the statute in such case made and provided, and out of the proceeds of such sale to retain the moneys due under the terms of this mortgage, the costs and charges of such sale and also the attorney’s fee provided by statute, rendering the surplus moneys (if any there should be) to the said Mortgagor. In the event of public sale, the mortgaged premises may, at the option of the Mortgagee, be sold in one parcel.
