This TRUST AGREEMENT (“Trust Agreement”), dated as of December 1, 2005 (the “Agreement”), is by and among STRUCTURED ASSET SECURITIES CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation, as depositor (the “Depositor”), AURORA LOAN SERVICES LLC, as master servicer (the “Master Servicer”), and CITIBANK, N.A., a national banking association, as trustee (the “Trustee”).


PRELIMINARY STATEMENT


The Depositor has acquired the Mortgage Loans from the Seller, and at the Closing Date is the owner of the Mortgage Loans and the other property being conveyed by it to the Trustee hereunder for inclusion in the Trust Fund.  On the Closing Date, the Depositor will acquire the Certificates from the Trust Fund as consideration for its transfer to the Trust Fund of the Mortgage Loans and the other property constituting the Trust Fund.  The Depositor has duly authorized the execution and delivery of this Agreement to provide for the conveyance to the Trustee of the Mortgage Loans and the other property constituting the Trust Fund.  All covenants and agreements made by the Seller in the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement and by the Depositor, the Master Servicer and the Trustee herein with respect to the Mortgage Loans and the other property constituting the Trust Fund are for the benefit of the Holders from time to time of the Certificates and, to the extent provided herein, the Certificate Insurer.  The Depositor, the Trustee and the Master Servicer are entering into this Agreement, and the Trustee is accepting the Trust Fund created hereby, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged.


As provided herein, the Trustee shall elect that the Trust Fund (exclusive of (i) the Pool 1 Basis Risk Reserve Fund, (ii) the Pool 2 Basis Risk Reserve Fund, (iii) the Class 1-A1 Cap Agreement, (iv) the Class 2-A1 Cap Agreement, (v) the Swap Agreement, (vi) the Supplemental Interest Trust (vii) the obligation to pay Class I Shortfalls, and (viii) the rights to receive (and the obligations to pay) Basis Risk Shortfalls and Unpaid Basis Risk Shortfalls (collectively, the “Excluded Trust Assets”) be treated for federal income tax purposes as comprising seven real estate mortgage investment conduits (each, a “REMIC”).  There shall be four REMICs related to Pool 1: Pooling REMIC 1, Lower-Tier REMIC 1, Middle Tier REMIC 1, and Upper-Tier REMIC 1.  There shall be three REMICs related to Pool 2: the Pooling REMIC 2, the Lower-Tier REMIC 2, and the Upper-Tier RE MIC 2.

Pooling REMIC 1 shall hold the assets of the Trust Fund related to Pool 1, other than any Excluded Trust Assets, and shall issue several uncertificated interests and shall also issue the Class LT-R-1 Certificate, which is hereby designated as the sole residual interest in Pooling REMIC 1.  Each uncertificated interest in Pooling REMIC 1 is hereby designated as a REMIC regular interest.  

Lower-Tier REMIC 1 shall hold the uncertificated interests issued by Pooling REMIC 1 and shall issue several uncertificated interests.  Each such interest, other than the Class LT1-R Interest, is hereby designated as a REMIC regular interest.  The Class LT1-R Interest is hereby designated as the sole residual interest in Lower-Tier REMIC 1.

Middle-Tier REMIC 1 shall hold the uncertificated interests issued by Lower-Tier REMIC 1, other than the Class LT1-R Interest, and shall issue several uncertificated interests.  Each such interest, other than the Class MT1-R Interest, is hereby designated as a REMIC regular interest.  The Class MT1-R Interest is hereby designated as the sole residual interest in Middle-Tier REMIC 1.

Upper-Tier REMIC 1 shall hold the uncertificated interests issued by Middle-Tier REMIC 1, other than the Class MT1-R Interest.  Each of the Group 1 Certificates (other than the Residual Certificates) represent ownership of regular interests in Upper-Tier REMIC 1.  Each of the Group 1 Certificates (other than the Residual Certificates, Class 1-X Certificates, and Class 1-P Certificates) also represent (i) the right to receive Basis Risk Shortfalls or Unpaid Basis Risk Shortfalls and (ii) the obligation to pay Class I Shortfalls.  For federal income tax purposes, the Class 1-X Certificate also represents the obligation to make payments in respect of Basis Risk Shortfalls or Unpaid Basis Risk Shortfalls to the Group 1 Certificates and beneficial ownership of the Pool 1 Basis Risk Reserve Fund, and the Class 1-A1 Cap Agreement and the Supplemental Interest Trust.  The Class R-1 Certificate represents ownership of the sole class of residual interest in Upper-Tier REMIC 1 as well as ownership of the Class LT1-R and Class MT1-R Interests.

Upper-Tier REMIC 2 shall hold the uncertificated interests issued by Lower-Tier REMIC 2, other than the Class LT2-R Interest.  Each of the Group 2 Certificates (other than the Residual Certificates) represent ownership of regular interests in Upper-Tier REMIC 2.  Each of the Group 2 Certificates (other than the Residual Certificates, the Class 2-P Certificates, and the Class 2-X Certificates) also represent the right to receive Basis Risk Shortfalls or Unpaid Basis Risk Shortfalls.  For federal income tax purposes, the Class 2-X Certificate also represents the obligation to make payments in respect of Basis Risk Shortfalls or Unpaid Basis Risk Shortfalls to the Group 2 Certificates and beneficial ownership of the Pool 2 Basis Risk Reserve Fund and the Class 2-A1 Cap Agreement.  The Class R-2 Certificate represents ownership of the sole class of residual interest i n Upper-Tier REMIC 2 as well as ownership of the Class LT2-R Interest.




Pooling REMIC 1


Pooling REMIC 1 shall issue one uncertificated interest in respect of each Pool 1 Mortgage Loan held by the Trust on the Closing Date, each of which is hereby designated as a regular interest in Pooling REMIC 1 (the “Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests”).  Pooling REMIC 1 shall also issue the Class LT-R-1 Certificate, which shall represent the sole class of residual interest in Pooling REMIC 1.  Each Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interest shall have an initial principal balance equal to the Scheduled Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loan to which it relates and shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the Net Mortgage Rate of such Mortgage Loan.  In the event a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan is substituted for such Mortgage Loan (the “Original Mortgage Loan”), no amount of interest payable on such Qualified Mortgage Loan shall be distributed on such Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interest at a rate in excess of the Net Mortgage Rate of the Original Mortgage Loan.

On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall first pay or charge as an expense of  Pooling REMIC 1 all expenses of the Trust Fund (other than any expenses with respect to the Swap Agreement) that are deducted in computing the Interest Remittance Amount for Pool 1 for such Distribution Date.

On each Distribution Date the Trustee shall distribute the aggregate Interest Remittance Amount for Pool 1 (net of expenses described in the preceding paragraph) with respect to each of the Lower-Tier Interests in Pooling REMIC 1 based on the above-described interest rates.

On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall distribute the aggregate Principal Remittance Amount for Pool 1 among the Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests in accordance with the amount of the Principal Remittance Amount attributable to the Mortgage Loan corresponding to each such Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interest.  All losses on the Mortgage Loans shall be allocated among the Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interest in the same manner that principal distributions are allocated.

On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall distribute the Prepayment Premiums with respect to Pool 1 collected during the preceding Prepayment Period, in the case of Principal Prepayments in full, or during the related Collection Period, in the case of Principal Prepayments in part, to the Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interest corresponding to the Mortgage Loan with respect to which such amounts were received.

On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall distribute the aggregate Principal Remittance Amount for Pool 1 with respect to the Lower Tier REMIC 1 Interests, first to the Class LT1-A Interest until its principal balance is reduced to zero, and then sequentially, to the other Lower Tier Interests in Lower-Tier REMIC 1 in ascending order of their numerical class designation, and, with respect to each pair of classes having the same numerical designation, in equal amounts to each such class, until the principal balance of each such class is reduced to zero.  All losses on the Pool 1 Mortgage Loans shall be allocated among the Lower Tier Interests in Lower-Tier REMIC 1 in the same manner that principal distributions are allocated.

On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall distribute the Prepayment Premiums with respect to Pool 1 collected during the preceding Prepayment Period, in the case of Principal Prepayments in full, or during the related Collection Period, in the case of Principal Prepayments in part, to the Class LT1-F36 and Class LT1-V36 Lower Tier Interests, respectively.

Middle-Tier REMIC 1:

The following table sets forth the designations, principal balances and interest rates for each interest in Middle-Tier REMIC 1, each of which (other than the Class MT1-R Interest) is hereby designated as a regular interest in Middle-Tier REMIC 1 (the “Middle-Tier REMIC 1 Regular Interests”):

For any Distribution Date (and the related Accrual Period) the interest rate for each of these Interests in Middle-Tier REMIC 1 is a per annum rate equal to the weighted average of the interest rates on the Lower Tier Interests in Lower-Tier REMIC 1 for such Distribution Date, provided, however, that for any Distribution Date on which the Class MT1-IO Interest is entitled to a portion of the interest accruals on a Lower Tier Interest in Lower-Tier REMIC 1 having an “F” in its class designation, as described in footnote two below, such weighted average shall be computed by first subjecting the rate on such Lower Tier Interest in REMIC 1 to a cap equal to Swap LIBOR for such Distribution Date.

(2)

 The Class MT1-IO is an interest only class that does not have a principal balance.  For only those Distribution Dates listed in the first column in the table below, the Class MT1-IO shall be entitled to interest accrued on the Lower Tier Interest in Lower-Tier REMIC 1 listed in second column in the table below at a per annum rate equal to the excess, if any, of (i) the interest rate for such Lower Tier Interest in Lower-Tier REMIC 1 for such Distribution Date over (ii) Swap LIBOR for such Distribution Date.

(3)

This interest shall have an initial class principal amount equal to one-half of the initial Class Principal Amount of its Corresponding Class of Certificates.

(4)

This interest shall have an initial class principal amount equal to the excess of (i) the aggregate Pool 1 Balance as of the Cut-off Date, over (ii) the aggregate initial class principal amount of each other regular interest in Middle-Tier REMIC 1.

(5)

The Class MT1-R interest is the sole class of residual interests in Middle-Tier REMIC 1.  It does not have an interest rate or a principal balance.

On each Distribution Date, interest shall be distributed on the Lower Tier Interests in Middle-Tier REMIC 1 based on the above-described interest rates, provided, however, that interest that accrues on the Class MT1-Q Interest shall be deferred in an amount equal to one-half of the increase, if any, in the Overcollateralization Amount for such Distribution Date.  Any interest so deferred shall itself bear interest at the interest rate for the Class MT1-Q Interest.  An amount equal to the interest so deferred shall be distributed as additional principal on the other interests in Middle-Tier REMIC 1 having a principal balance in the manner described under priority (a) below.

On each Distribution Date principal shall be distributed, and Realized Losses shall be allocated, among the interests in Middle-Tier REMIC 1 in the following order of priority:

(a) First, to the Class MT1-A1, Class MT1-A2, Class MT1-A3, Class MT1-A4, Class MT1-A5, Class MT1-M1, Class MT1-M2, Class MT1-M3, Class MT1-M4, Class MT1-M5, and Class MT1-M6 Interests until the principal balance of each such interest equals one-half of the Class Principal Amount of the Corresponding Class of Certificates immediately after such Distribution Date; and

(b) Second, to the Class MT1-Q Interests, any remaining amounts.

On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall be deemed to have distributed the Prepayment Premiums passed through with respect to the Class LT1-F36 and Class LT1-V36 Lower Tier Interests in Lower-Tier REMIC 1 on such Distribution Date  to the Class MT1-Q Interest.

Pooling REMIC 2


Pooling REMIC 2 shall issue one uncertificated interest in respect of each Pool 2 Mortgage Loan held by the Trust on the Closing Date, each of which is hereby designated as a regular interest in Pooling REMIC 2 (the “Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests”).  Pooling REMIC 2 shall also issue the Class LT-R-2 Certificate, which shall represent the sole class of residual interest in Pooling REMIC 2.  Each Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interest shall have an initial principal balance equal to the Scheduled Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loan to which it relates and shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the Net Mortgage Rate of such Mortgage Loan.  In the event a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan is substituted for such Mortgage Loan (the “Original Mortgage Loan”), no amount of interest payable on such Qualified Mortgage Loan shall be distributed on such Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interest at a rate in excess of the Net Mortgage Rate of the Original Mortgage Loan.

On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall first pay or charge as an expense of  Pooling REMIC 2 all expenses of the Trust Fund that are deducted in computing the Interest Remittance Amount for Pool 2 for such Distribution Date.

On each Distribution Date the Trustee shall distribute the Interest Remittance Amount for Pool 2 with respect to each of the Lower-Tier Interests in Pooling REMIC 2 based on the above-described interest rates.

On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall distribute the Principal Remittance Amount for Pool 2 among the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests in accordance with the amount of the Principal Remittance Amount attributable to the Mortgage Loan corresponding to each such Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interest.  All losses on the Mortgage Loans shall be allocated among the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interest in the same manner that principal distributions are allocated.

On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall distribute the Prepayment Premiums with respect to Pool 2 collected during the preceding Prepayment Period, in the case of Principal Prepayments in full, or during the related Collection Period, in the case of Principal Prepayments in part, to the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interest corresponding to the Mortgage Loan with respect to which such amounts were received.

Lower-Tier REMIC 2


The following table sets forth (or describes) the designation, interest rate, and initial principal balance of each Lower-Tier Interest in Lower-Tier REMIC 2, each of which, other than the LT2-R Lower Tier Interest) is hereby designated as a regular interest in Lower-Tier REMIC 2 (the “Lower-Tier REMIC 2 Regular Interests).

(ii)

the execution and delivery by the Depositor of this Agreement have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action on the part of the Depositor; neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement, nor the consummation of the transactions herein contemplated, nor compliance with the provisions hereof, will conflict with or result in a breach of, or constitute a default under, any of the provisions of any law, governmental rule, regulation, judgment, decree or order binding on the Depositor or its properties or the certificate of incorporation or bylaws of the Depositor;


(iii)

the execution, delivery and performance by the Depositor of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby do not require the consent or approval of, the giving of notice to, the registration with, or the taking of any other action in respect of, any state, federal or other governmental authority or agency, except such as has been obtained, given, effected or taken prior to the date hereof;


(iv)

this Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by the Depositor and, assuming due authorization, execution and delivery by the Trustee and the Master Servicer constitutes a valid and binding obligation of the Depositor enforceable against it in accordance with its terms except as such enforceability may be subject to (A) applicable bankruptcy and insolvency laws and other similar laws affecting the enforcement of the rights of creditors generally and (B) general principles of equity regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law;


(v)

there are no actions, suits or proceedings pending or, to the knowledge of the Depositor, threatened or likely to be asserted against or affecting the Depositor, before or by any court, administrative agency, arbitrator or governmental body (A) with respect to any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or (B) with respect to any other matter which in the judgment of the Depositor will be determined adversely to the Depositor and will if determined adversely to the Depositor materially and adversely affect it or its business, assets, operations or condition, financial or otherwise, or adversely affect its ability to perform its obligations under this Agreement; and


(vi)

(b)

The representations and warranties of each Transferor with respect to the related Mortgage Loans in the applicable Transfer Agreement, which have been assigned to the Trustee hereunder, were made as of the date specified in the applicable Transfer Agreement (or underlying agreement, if such Transfer Agreement is in the form of an assignment of a prior agreement).  To the extent that any fact, condition or event with respect to a Mortgage Loan constitutes a breach of both (i) a representation or warranty of the applicable Transferor under the applicable Transfer Agreement and (ii) a representation or warranty of the Seller under the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement, the only right or remedy of the Trustee or any Certificateholder hereunder (other than a breach by the Seller of the representations made pursuant to Sections 1.04(b)(xii), 1.04(b)(xiii), 1.04(b)(xiv), 1.04(b)(xv) and 1.04(b)(xvi) of the Mo rtgage Loan Sale Agreement) shall be their rights to enforce the obligations of the applicable Transferor under any applicable representation or warranty made by it.  Pursuant to the terms of the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement, the representations and warranties made by the Seller pursuant to Sections 1.04(b)(xii), 1.04(b)(xiii), 1.04(b)(xiv), 1.04(b)(xv) and 1.04(b)(xvi) of the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement shall be the direct obligations of the Seller.  With the exception of the immediately proceeding sentence, the Seller shall not have any other obligation or liability with respect to any breach of a representation or warranty made by it with respect to the Mortgage Loans sold by it if the fact, condition or event constituting such breach also constitutes a breach of a representation or warranty made by the applicable Transferor in the applicable Transfer Agreement, without regard to whether such Transferor fulfills its contractual obligations in respect of such representation or warranty.  Th e Depositor shall have no obligation or liability with respect to any breach of any representation or warranty with respect to the Mortgage Loans (except as set forth in Section 2.03(a)(vi)) under any circumstances.  


Section 2.04.

Discovery of Breach.  

It is understood and agreed that the representations and warranties (i) set forth in Section 2.03, (ii) of the Seller set forth in the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement and assigned to the Depositor by the Seller under the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement and to the Trustee by the Depositor hereunder and (iii) of each Transferor and of each Servicer assigned by the Seller to the Depositor pursuant to the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement and assigned to the Trustee by the Depositor hereunder, shall each survive delivery of the Mortgage Files and the Assignment of Mortgage of each Mortgage Loan to the Trustee and shall continue throughout the term of this Agreement.  Upon discovery by any of the Depositor, the Certificate Insurer, the Master Servicer or the Trustee of a breach of any of such representations and warranties that materially and adversely affects the value of the related Mortgage Loan, the party discover ing such breach shall give prompt written notice to the other parties.  Within 90 days of the discovery of a breach of any representation or warranty given to the Trustee and the Certificate Insurer by the Depositor or given by any Transferor or the Seller and assigned to the Trustee, the Depositor, such Transferor or the Seller, as applicable, shall either (a) cure such breach in all material respects, (b) repurchase such Mortgage Loan or any property acquired in respect thereof from the Trustee at the Purchase Price (or, with respect to Mortgage Loans as to which there is a breach of a representation or warranty set forth in Section 1.04(b)(v) of the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement, at the purchase price therefor paid by the Seller under the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement) or (c) within the two-year period following the Closing Date, substitute a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan for the affected Mortgage Loan.  In the event of discovery of a breach of any representation and warranty of any Transfer or assigned to the Trustee, the Trustee shall enforce its rights under the applicable Transfer Agreement and the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement for the benefit of Certificateholders.  As provided in the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreements, if any Transferor substitutes a mortgage loan for a Deleted Mortgage Loan pursuant to the related Transfer Agreement and such substitute mortgage loan is not a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan, then pursuant to the terms of the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement the Seller will, in exchange for such substitute mortgage loan, (i) pay to the Trust Fund the applicable Purchase Price for the affected Mortgage Loan or (ii) within two years of the Closing Date, substitute a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan.


Section 2.05.

Repurchase, Purchase or Substitution of Mortgage Loans.  

(a)

With respect to any Mortgage Loan repurchased by the Depositor pursuant to this Agreement, by the Seller pursuant to the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement, or by the Transferor pursuant to the applicable Transfer Agreement, the principal portion of the funds received by the Master Servicer in respect of such repurchase of a Mortgage Loan will be considered a Principal Prepayment and the Purchase Price shall be deposited in the Collection Account or a Custodial Account, as applicable.  The Trustee (i) upon receipt of the full amount of the Purchase Price for a Deleted Mortgage Loan, (ii) upon receipt of a written certification from the Master Servicer that it has received the full amount of the Purchase Price for a Deleted Mortgage Loan and has deposited such amount in the Collection Account or (iii) upon receipt of notification from the Custodian that it had received the Mortgage File for a Qualifying Subst itute Mortgage Loan substituted for a Deleted Mortgage Loan (and any applicable Substitution Amount), shall release or cause to be released and reassign to the Depositor, the Seller or the Transferor, as applicable, the related Mortgage File for the Deleted Mortgage Loan and shall execute and deliver such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, representation or warranty, as shall be necessary to vest in such party or its designee or assignee title to any Deleted Mortgage Loan released pursuant hereto, free and clear of all security interests, liens and other encumbrances created by this Agreement, which instruments shall be prepared by the related Servicer and the Trustee shall have no further responsibility with respect to the Mortgage File relating to such Deleted Mortgage Loan.  The Seller indemnifies and holds the Trust Fund, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Certificate Insurer, the Depositor and each Certificateholder harmless against any and all taxes, claims, l osses, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable legal fees and related costs, judgments, and any other costs, fees and expenses that the Trust Fund, the Trustee, the Certificate Insurer, the Master Servicer, the Depositor and any Certificateholder may sustain in connection with any actions of the Seller relating to a repurchase of a Mortgage Loan other than in compliance with the terms of this Section 2.05 and the Mortgage Loan Sale Agreement, to the extent that any such action causes an Adverse REMIC Event.


(b)

With respect to each Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan to be delivered to the Trustee (or the applicable Custodian) pursuant to the terms of this Article II in exchange for a Deleted Mortgage Loan:  (i) the Depositor, the Transferor or the Seller, as applicable, must deliver to the Trustee (or the applicable Custodian) the Mortgage File for the Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan containing the documents set forth in Section 2.01(b) along with a written certification certifying as to the delivery of such Mortgage File and containing the granting language set forth in Section 2.01(a); and (ii) the Depositor will be deemed to have made, with respect to such Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan, each of the representations and warranties made by it with respect to the related Deleted Mortgage Loan.  As soon as practicable after the delivery of any Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan hereunder, the M aster Servicer, at the expense of the Depositor and with the cooperation of the applicable Servicer, shall (i) with respect to a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan that is a Non-MERS Mortgage Loan, cause the Assignment of Mortgage to be recorded by the applicable Servicer if required pursuant to Section 2.01(c), or (ii) with respect to a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan that is a MERS Mortgage Loan, cause to be taken such actions as are necessary to cause the Trustee to be clearly identified as the owner of each such Mortgage Loan on the records of MERS if required pursuant to Section 2.01(c).


(c)

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the right to substitute Mortgage Loans pursuant to this Article II shall be subject to the additional limitations that no substitution of a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan for a Deleted Mortgage Loan shall be made unless the Trustee has received an Opinion of Counsel (at the expense of the party seeking to make the substitution) that, under current law, such substitution will not result in an Adverse REMIC Event.


Section 2.06.

Grant Clause.  

(a)

It is intended that the conveyance of the Depositor’s right, title and interest in and to property constituting the Trust Fund pursuant to this Agreement shall constitute, and shall be construed as, a sale of such property and not a grant of a security interest to secure a loan.  However, if such conveyance is deemed to be in respect of a loan, it is intended that:  (1) the rights and obligations of the parties shall be established pursuant to the terms of this Agreement; (2) the Depositor hereby grants to the Trustee for the benefit of the Holders and the Certificate Insurer a first priority security interest to secure repayment of an obligation in an amount equal to the aggregate Class Principal Amount of the Certificates (or the aggregate principal balance of the Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests or Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests, as applicable) in all of the Depositor’s right, tit le and interest in, to and under, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, the Trust Fund and, with respect to the Group 1 Certificateholders, the Supplemental Interest Trust and all proceeds of any and all property constituting the Trust Fund and the Supplemental Interest Trust to secure payment of the Certificates (or Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests or the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests, as applicable) (such security interest being, to the extent of the assets that constitute the Supplemental Interest Trust, pari passu with the security interest as provided in clause (4) below); (3) this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law; and (4) the Swap Counterparty shall be deemed, during the term of such agreement and while such agreement is the property of the Trustee, to have a security interest in all of the assets that constitute the Supplemental Interest Trust, but only to the extent of such Swap Counterparty’s right to payment under the Swap Agreement (such secu rity interest being pari passu with the security interest as provided in clause (2) above).  If such conveyance is deemed to be in respect of a loan and the trust created by this Agreement terminates prior to the satisfaction of the claims of any Person holding any Certificate or Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests or the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests, as applicable, the security interest created hereby shall continue in full force and effect and the Trustee shall be deemed to be the collateral agent for the benefit of such Person, and all proceeds shall be distributed as herein provided.


(b)

The Depositor shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such reasonable actions as may be necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were deemed to create a security interest in the Mortgage Loans and the other property described above, such security interest would be deemed to be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and shall be maintained as such throughout the term of this Agreement.  The Depositor shall, at its own expense, make all initial filings on or about the Closing Date and shall forward a copy of such filing or filings to the Trustee.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Depositor shall prepare and forward for filing, or shall cause to be forwarded for filing, at the expense of the Depositor, all filings necessary to maintain the effectiveness of any original filings necessary under the relevant UCC to perfect the Trust ee’s security interest in or lien on the Mortgage Loans, including without limitation (x) continuation statements, and (y) such other statements as may be occasioned by (1) any change of name of the Seller, the Depositor or the Trustee, (2) any change of location of the jurisdiction of organization of the Seller or the Depositor, (3) any transfer of any interest of the Seller or the Depositor in any Mortgage Loan or (4) any change under the relevant UCC or other applicable laws.  Neither the Seller nor the Depositor shall organize under the law of any jurisdiction other than the State under which each is organized as of the Closing Date (whether changing its jurisdiction of organization or organizing under an additional jurisdiction) without giving 30 days prior written notice of such action to its immediate and intermediate transferee, including the Trustee.  Before effecting such change, the Seller or the Depositor proposing to change its jurisdiction of organization shall prepare and file i n the appropriate filing office any financing statements or other statements necessary to continue the perfection of the interests of its immediate and mediate transferees, including the Trustee, in the Mortgage Loans.  In connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, the Seller and the Depositor authorizes its immediate or mediate transferee to file in any filing office any initial financing statements, any amendments to financing statements, any continuation statements, or any other statements or filings described in this paragraph (b).

The Trustee is hereby appointed, and hereby accepts its appointment as, Certificate Registrar in respect of the Certificates (and, after a Section 7.01(d) Purchase Event, the applicable Pooling REMIC Regular Interests) and shall maintain books for the registration and for the transfer of Certificates (and, after a Section 7.01(d) Purchase Event, the applicable Pooling REMIC Regular Interests) (the “Certificate Register”).  The Trustee may appoint a bank or trust company to act as Certificate Registrar.  A registration book shall be maintained for the Certificates (and, after a Section 7.01(d) Purchase Event, the applicable Pooling REMIC Regular Interests) collectively.  The Certificate Registrar may resign or be discharged or removed and a new successor may be appointed in accordance with the procedures and requirements set forth in Sections 6.06 and 6.07 hereof with respect to the resignation, discharge or removal of the Trustee and the appointment of a successor Trustee.  The Certificate Registrar may appoint, by written instrument delivered to the Holders and the Master Servicer, any bank or trust company to act as co-registrar under such conditions as the Certificate Registrar may prescribe; provided, however, that the Certificate Registrar shall not be relieved of any of its duties or responsibilities hereunder by reason of such appointment.


Upon the occurrence of a Section 7.01(d) Purchase Event, the Master Servicer shall provide the Trustee with written notice of the identity of any transferee of the Master Servicer’s interest in the Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests or the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests which notice shall contain a certification that such transferee is a permitted LTURI holder hereunder.  The Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests or the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests may only be transferred in whole and not in part to no more than one LTURI-holder at a time who is either (1) an affiliate of the Master Servicer or (2) a trustee of a privately placed securitization.  The Trustee and the Depositor shall treat the Person in whose name the Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests or the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests are registered on the books of the Certificate Registrar as the LTURI-holder for all purposes hereund er.

(b)

A Certificate may be exchanged by the Holder thereof for any number of new Certificates of the same Class, in authorized denominations, representing in the aggregate the same Certificate Principal Amount or Percentage Interest as the Certificate surrendered, upon surrender of the Certificate to be exchanged at the office of the Certificate Registrar duly endorsed or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer duly executed by such Holder or his duly authorized attorney in such form as is satisfactory to the Certificate Registrar.  Certificates delivered upon any such exchange will evidence the same obligations, and will be entitled to the same rights and privileges, as the Certificates surrendered.  No service charge shall be made to a Certificateholder for any exchange of Certificates, but the Certificate Registrar may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charg e that may be imposed in connection with any exchange of Certificates.  Whenever any Certificates are so surrendered for exchange, the Trustee shall execute, and the Trustee or the Authenticating Agent shall authenticate, date and deliver the Certificates which the Certificateholder making the exchange is entitled to receive.


(c)

By acceptance of a Restricted Certificate, whether upon original issuance or subsequent transfer, each Holder of such a Certificate acknowledges the restrictions on the transfer of such Certificate set forth thereon and agrees that it will transfer such a Certificate only as provided herein.  


The following restrictions shall apply with respect to the transfer and registration of transfer of a Restricted Certificate to a transferee that takes delivery in the form of a Definitive Certificate:


(i)

The Certificate Registrar shall register the transfer of a Restricted Certificate if the requested transfer is (x) to the Depositor or an affiliate (as defined in Rule 405 under the 1933 Act) of the Depositor or (y) being made to a “qualified institutional buyer” (a “QIB”) as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”) by a transferor that has provided the Trustee with a certificate in the form of Exhibit F hereto; and


(ii)

The Certificate Registrar shall register the transfer of a Restricted Certificate if the requested transfer is being made to an “accredited investor” under Rule 501(a)(1), (2), (3) or (7) under the Act, or to any Person all of the equity owners in which are such accredited investors, by a transferor who furnishes to the Trustee a letter of the transferee substantially in the form of Exhibit G hereto.


(d)

(i)

No transfer of an ERISA-Restricted Certificate in the form of a Definitive Certificate shall be made to any Person or shall be effective unless the Trustee has received (A) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit H hereto (or Exhibit D-1, in the case of a Residual Certificate) from such transferee or (B) an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that the purchase and holding of such a Certificate will not constitute or result in prohibited transactions under Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code and will not subject the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Depositor or any NIMS Insurer to any obligation in addition to those undertaken in the Agreement; provided, however, that the Trustee will not require such certificate or opinion in the event that, as a result of a change of law or otherwise, the Trustee receives an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that the purchase and holding of an ERIS A-Restricted Certificate by a Plan or a Person that is purchasing or holding such a Certificate with the assets of a Plan will not constitute or result in a prohibited transaction under Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code.  Each Transferee of an ERISA-Restricted Certificate that is a Book-Entry Certificate shall be deemed to have made the representations set forth in Exhibit H.  The preparation and delivery of the certificate and opinions referred to above shall not be an expense of the Trust Fund, the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the NIMS Insurer or the Depositor.


Notwithstanding the foregoing, no opinion or certificate shall be required for the initial issuance of the ERISA-Restricted Certificates.  The Trustee shall have no obligation to monitor transfers of Book-Entry Certificates that are ERISA-Restricted Certificates and shall have no liability for transfers of such Certificates in violation of the transfer restrictions.  The Trustee shall be under no liability to any Person for any registration of transfer of any ERISA-Restricted Certificate that is in fact not permitted by this Section 3.03(d) or for making any payments due on such Certificate to the Holder thereof or taking any other action with respect to such Holder under the provisions of this Agreement so long as the transfer was registered by the Trustee in accordance with the foregoing requirements.  The Trustee shall be entitled, but not obligated, to recover from any Holder of any ERISA - -Restricted Certificate that was in fact a Plan or a Person acting on behalf of a Plan, any payments made on such ERISA-Restricted Certificate at and after either such time.  Any such payments so recovered by the Trustee shall be paid and delivered by the Trustee to the last preceding Holder of such Certificate that is not such a Plan or Person acting on behalf of a Plan.


(ii)

No transfer of an ERISA-Restricted Swap Certificate prior to the termination of the Swap Agreement shall be made unless the Trustee shall have received a representation letter from the transferee of such Certificate, substantially in the form set forth in Exhibit H, to the effect that either (i) such transferee is neither a Plan nor a Person acting on behalf of any such Plan or using the assets of any such Plan to effect such transfer or (ii) the acquisition and holding of the ERISA-Restricted Swap Certificate are eligible for exemptive relief under Prohibited Transaction Class Exemption (“PTCE”) 84-14, PTCE 90-1, PTCE 91-38, PTCE 95-60 or PTCE 96-23.  Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary herein, any purported transfer of an ERISA-Restricted Swap Certificate prior to the termination of the Swap Agreement or on behalf of a Plan without the delivery to the Trust ee of a representation letter as described above shall be void and of no effect.  If the ERISA-Restricted Swap Certificate is a Book-Entry Certificate, the transferee will be deemed to have made a representation as provided in clause (i) or (ii) of this paragraph, as applicable.

If any ERISA-Restricted Swap Certificate, or any interest therein, is acquired or held in violation of the provisions of the preceding paragraph, the next preceding permitted beneficial owner will be treated as the beneficial owner of that Certificate, retroactive to the date of transfer to the purported beneficial owner.  Any purported beneficial owner whose acquisition or holding of an ERISA-Restricted Swap Certificate, or interest therein, was effected in violation of the provisions of the preceding paragraph shall indemnify to the extent permitted by law and hold harmless the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee, any NIMS Insurer and the Master Servicer from and against any and all liabilities, claims, costs or expenses incurred by such parties as a result of such acquisition or holding.

To the extent permitted under applicable law (including, but not limited to, ERISA), the Trustee shall be under no liability to any Person for any registration of transfer of any ERISA-Restricted Swap Certificate that is in fact not permitted by this Section 3.03(d)(ii) or for making any payments due on such Certificate to the Holder thereof or taking any other action with respect to such Holder under the provisions of this Agreement so long as the transfer was registered by the Trustee in accordance with the foregoing requirements.

(e)

As a condition of the registration of transfer or exchange of any Certificate, the Certificate Registrar may require the certified taxpayer identification number of the owner of the Certificate and the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge imposed in connection therewith; provided, however, that the Certificate Registrar shall have no obligation to require such payment or to determine whether or not any such tax or charge may be applicable.  No service charge shall be made to the Certificateholder for any registration, transfer or exchange of a Certificate.


(f)

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no Residual Certificate may be owned, pledged or transferred, directly or indirectly, by or to (i) a Disqualified Organization or (ii) an individual, corporation or partnership or other person unless such person is (A) not a Non-U.S. Person or (B) is a Non-U.S. Person that holds a Residual Certificate in connection with the conduct of a trade or business within the United States and has furnished the transferor and the Trustee with an effective Internal Revenue Service W-8ECI or successor form at the time and in the manner required by the Code (any such person who is not covered by clause (A) or (B) above is referred to herein as a “Non-permitted Foreign Holder”).


Prior to and as a condition of the registration of any transfer, sale or other disposition of a Residual Certificate, the proposed transferee shall deliver to the Trustee an affidavit in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit D-1 representing and warranting, among other things, that such transferee is neither a Disqualified Organization, an agent or nominee acting on behalf of a Disqualified Organization, nor a Non-Permitted Foreign Holder (any such transferee, a “Permitted Transferee”), and the proposed transferor shall deliver to the Trustee an affidavit in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit D-2.  In addition, the Trustee may (but shall have no obligation to) require, prior to and as a condition of any such transfer, the delivery by the proposed transferee of an Opinion of Counsel, addressed to the Depositor, the Master Servicer and the Trustee satisfactory in form and substance to the Depositor, that such proposed transferee or, if the proposed transferee is an agent or nominee, the proposed beneficial owner, is not a Disqualified Organization, agent or nominee thereof, or a Non-Permitted Foreign Holder.  Notwithstanding the registration in the Certificate Register of any transfer, sale, or other disposition of a Residual Certificate to a Disqualified Organization, an agent or nominee thereof, or Non-Permitted Foreign Holder, such registration shall be deemed to be of no legal force or effect whatsoever and such Disqualified Organization, agent or nominee thereof, or Non-Permitted Foreign Holder shall not be deemed to be a Certificateholder for any purpose hereunder, including, but not limited to, the receipt of distributions on such Residual Certificate.  The Trustee shall not be under any liability to any person for any registration or transfer of a Residual Certificate to a Disqualified Organization, agent or nominee thereof or Non-permitted Foreign Hold er or for the maturity of any payments due on such Residual Certificate to the Holder thereof or for taking any other action with respect to such Holder under the provisions of the Agreement, so long as the transfer was effected in accordance with this Section 3.03(f), unless the Trustee shall have actual knowledge at the time of such transfer or the time of such payment or other action that the transferee is a Disqualified Organization, or an agent or nominee thereof, or Non-permitted Foreign Holder.  The Trustee shall be entitled to recover from any Holder of a Residual Certificate that was a Disqualified Organization, agent or nominee thereof, or Non-permitted Foreign Holder at the time it became a Holder or any subsequent time it became a Disqualified Organization, agent or nominee thereof, or Non-permitted Foreign Holder, all payments made on such Residual Certificate at and after either such times (and all costs and expenses, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, incurred in connectio n therewith).  Any payment (not including any such costs and expenses) so recovered by the Trustee shall be paid and delivered to the last preceding Holder of such Residual Certificate.


If any purported transferee shall become a registered Holder of a Residual Certificate in violation of the provisions of this Section 3.03(f), then upon receipt of written notice to the Trustee that the registration of transfer of such Residual Certificate was not in fact permitted by this Section 3.03(f), the last preceding Permitted Transferee shall be restored to all rights as Holder thereof retroactive to the date of such registration of transfer of such Residual Certificate.  The Trustee shall be under no liability to any Person for any registration of transfer of a Residual Certificate that is in fact not permitted by this Section 3.03(f), for making any payment due on such Certificate to the registered Holder thereof or for taking any other action with respect to such Holder under the provisions of this Agreement so long as the transfer was registered upon receipt of the affidavit described in t he preceding paragraph of this Section 3.03(f).


(g)

Each Holder or Certificate Owner of a Restricted Certificate, ERISA-Restricted Certificate, ERISA-Restricted Swap Certificate or Residual Certificate, or an interest therein, by such Holder’s or Owner’s acceptance thereof, shall be deemed for all purposes to have consented to the provisions of this section.

Subject to the provisions of Section 3.09 with respect to Book-Entry Certificates, the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Certificate Registrar and any agent of any of them may treat the Person in whose name any Certificate is registered upon the books of the Certificate Registrar as the owner of such Certificate for the purpose of receiving distributions pursuant to Sections 5.01 and 5.02 and for all other purposes whatsoever, and neither the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Certificate Registrar nor any agent of any of them shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

(vii)

subject to Section 5.05, to pay to itself income earned on the investment of funds deposited in the Collection Account;


(viii)

(xiii)

to reimburse any Servicer for such amounts as are due thereto under the applicable Servicing Agreement and have not been retained by or paid to such Servicer, to the extent provided in such Servicing Agreement.


If provided in the related Servicing Agreement, each Servicer shall be entitled to retain as additional servicing compensation any Prepayment Interest Excess (to the extent not offset by Prepayment Interest Shortfalls).

(b)

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event that the Master Servicer or Servicer fails for any reason to make an Advance required to be made pursuant to this Section 5.04 on or before the Master Servicer Remittance Date, the Trustee, in its capacity as successor Master Servicer pursuant to Section 6.14, shall, on or before the related Distribution Date, deposit in the Certificate Account an amount equal to the excess of (a) Advances required to be made by the Master Servicer or the Servicers that would have been deposited in such Certificate Account over (b) the amount of any Advance made by the Master Servicer or any Servicer with respect to such Distribution Date; provided, however, that the Trustee shall be required to make such Advance only if it is not prohibited by law from doing so and it has determined that such Advance would be recoverable from amounts to be received with r espect to such Mortgage Loan, including late payments, Liquidation Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds, or otherwise.  The Trustee shall be entitled to be reimbursed from the Certificate Account for Advances made by it pursuant to this Section 5.04 as if it were the Master Servicer.

(a)  

If, on the second Business Day before any Distribution Date, the Trustee determines that an Insured Amount is required to be made by the Certificate Insurer on such Distribution Date, the Trustee shall determine the amount of any such Insured Amount and shall give written notice to the Certificate Insurer by completing a Notice of Nonpayment in the form of Exhibit A to the Certificate Insurance Policy and submitting such Notice of Nonpayment by 12:00 noon, New York City time on such second Business Day as a claim for an Insured Amount.  The Trustee’s responsibility for delivering a Notice of Nonpayment to the Certificate Insurer, as provided in the preceding sentence, is limited to the availability, timeliness and accuracy of the information provided to it by the Master Servicer.

In the event the Trustee receives a certified copy of an order of the appropriate court that any scheduled payment of principal or interest on a Guaranteed Certificate has been voided in whole or in part as a preference payment under applicable bankruptcy law, the Trustee shall promptly notify the Certificate Insurer in writing, as appropriate, and the fiscal agent, if any, and the Trustee shall make a claim on the Certificate Insurance Policy in accordance with the provisions thereof to obtain payment by the Certificate Insurer of such voided scheduled payment.  In addition, the Trustee shall mail notice to all Holders of the Insured Certificates so affected that, in the event that any such Holder’s scheduled payment is so recovered, such Holder will be entitled to payment pursuant to the terms of the Certificate Insurance Policy, a copy of which shall be made available to such Holders by the Trustee.  The Trustee shall furnish to the Certificate Insurer and the appropriate fiscal agent, if any, its records listing the payments on the affected Insured Certificates, if any, that have been made by the Trustee and subsequently recovered from the affected Holders, and the dates on which such payments were made by the Trustee.

(b)  

At the time of the execution hereof, and for the purposes hereof, the Trustee shall establish the Policy Payments Account over which the Trustee shall have exclusive control and sole right of withdrawal.  The Policy Payments Account shall be an Eligible Account.  The Trustee shall deposit any amount paid under the Certificate Insurance Policy into the Policy Payments Account and distribute such amount only for the purposes of making payments to Holders of the Insured Certificates in respect of the Guaranteed Distributions (or other amounts payable pursuant to the second paragraph of subsection (a) above on the Insured Certificates by the Certificate Insurer pursuant to the Certificate Insurance Policy) for which the related claim was made under such Certificate Insurance Policy.  Such amounts shall be allocated by the Trustee to Holders of Insured Certificates entitled to such payments in the same manner as principal and interest distributions are to be allocated with respect to such Certificates pursuant to Section 5.02.  It shall not be necessary for such payments to be made by checks or wire transfers separate from the checks or wire transfers used to make regular payments hereunder with funds withdrawn from the Certificate Account.  However, any payments made on the Insured Certificates from funds in the Policy Payments Account shall be noted as provided in subsection (e) below.  Funds held in the Policy Payments Account shall not be invested by the Trustee.

(c)  

Any funds received from the Certificate Insurer for deposit into the Policy Payments Account pursuant to the Certificate Insurance Policy in respect of a Distribution Date or otherwise as a result of any claim under such Certificate Insurance Policy shall be applied by the Trustee directly to the payment in full (i) of the Insured Amounts due on such Distribution Date on the Insured Certificates or (ii) of other amounts to which payments under such Certificate Insurance Policy are to be applied.  Funds received by the Trustee as a result of any claim under the Certificate Insurance Policy shall be used solely for payment to the Holders of the related Insured Certificates and may not be applied for any other purpose, including, without limitation, satisfaction of any costs, expenses or liabilities of the Trustee or the Trust Fund.  Any funds remaining in the Policy Payments Account on the first Business Day after each Distribution Date (other than the final Distribution Date to the extent of funds remaining in the Policy Payments Account required to be paid to Holders of the Insured Certificates) shall be remitted promptly to the Certificate Insurer pursuant to the written instruction of the Certificate Insurer.

(e)  

The Trustee acknowledges, and each Holder of a Guaranteed Certificate by their acceptance of such Certificate agree, that, without the need for any further action on the part of the Certificate Insurer or the Trustee, to the extent the Certificate Insurer pays Insured Amounts or Preference Amounts, directly or indirectly, on account of principal of or interest on any such Class of Certificates, the Certificate Insurer will be fully subrogated to the rights of the Holders of such Class to receive the related Reimbursement Amount pursuant to Section 5.02(b)(iv) or Section 5.02(c)(iii), as applicable.  The Holders of each Guaranteed Certificate, by acceptance of their respective Classes of Certificates assign their rights as Holders of such Class of Certificates to the extent of the Certificate Insurer’s interest with respect to amounts paid under the Certificate Insurance Pol icy.  Each of the Depositor and Trustee agrees to such subrogation and, further agrees to execute such instruments and to take such actions as, in the sole judgment of the Certificate Insurer are necessary to evidence such subrogation and, subject to the priority of payment provisions of this Agreement, to perfect the rights of the Certificate Insurer to receive any moneys paid or payable in respect of the Insured Certificates under this Agreement or otherwise.  Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, solely for purposes of determining the Certificate Insurer’s rights as subrogee for payments distributable pursuant to Section 5.02, any payment with respect to distributions to the Insured Certificates that is made with funds received pursuant to the terms of the Certificate Insurance Policy shall not be considered payment of such Class of Certificates from the Trust Fund and shall not result in the distribution or the provision for the distribution in reduction of the Class Principal A mount of such Class of Certificates or Current Interest thereon, within the meaning of Article V.

(f)  

The Trustee shall promptly notify the Certificate Insurer of either of the following as to which a Responsible Officer has actual knowledge:  (A) the commencement of any proceeding by or against the Depositor commenced under the Bankruptcy Code or any other applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, rehabilitation or similar law (an “Insolvency Proceeding”) and (B) the making of any claim in connection with any Insolvency Proceeding seeking the avoidance as a preferential transfer (a “Preference Claim”) of any distribution made with respect to the Insured Certificates.  Each Holder of a Guaranteed Certificate, by its purchase of its respective Class of Certificate, and the Trustee hereby agree that the Certificate Insurer (so long as no Certificate Insurer Default exists) may at any time during the continuation of any proceeding relating to a Prefe rence Claim direct all matters relating to such Preference Claim, including, without limitation, (i) the direction of any appeal of any order relating to any Preference Claim and (ii) the posting of any surety, supersedes or performance bond pending any such appeal.  In addition and without limitation of the foregoing, the Certificate Insurer shall be subrogated to the rights of the Trustee and each Holder of a Guaranteed Certificate in the conduct of any Preference Claim, including, without limitation, all rights of any party to an adversary proceeding action with respect to any court order issued in connection with any such Preference Claim.

(g)  

The Trustee shall surrender the Certificate Insurance Policy to the Certificate Insurer for cancellation upon the termination of the Trust Fund pursuant to Article VII hereof.

Section 5.08.

Supplemental Interest Trust.

(a)  A separate trust is hereby established (the “Supplemental Interest Trust”), the corpus of which shall be held by the Trustee, in trust, for the benefit of the holders of the Group 1 Certificates.  The Trustee, as trustee of the Supplemental Interest Trust, shall establish an account (the “Supplemental Interest Trust Account”), into which LBH shall initially deposit $1,000.  The Supplemental Interest Trust Account shall be an Eligible Account, and funds on deposit therein shall be held separate and apart from, and shall not be commingled with, any other moneys, including, without limitation, other moneys of the Trustee held pursuant to this Agreement.  

(b)  The Trustee shall deposit into the Supplemental Interest Trust Account any Net Swap Payment required pursuant to Sections 5.02(b), (d), and (f), any Swap Termination Payment required pursuant to Sections 5.02(b), (d) and (f), any amounts received from the Swap Counterparty under the Swap Agreement and any amounts distributed from the Pool 1 Basis Risk Reserve Fund required pursuant to Sections 5.02(f)(iii), and shall distribute from the Supplemental Interest Trust Account any Net Swap Payment required pursuant to Section 5.02(h)(i) or Swap Termination Payment required pursuant to Sections 5.02(h)(ii) and (x).

(c)  Funds in the Supplemental Interest Trust Account shall be invested in Eligible Investments.  Any earnings on such amounts shall be distributed on each Distribution Date pursuant to Section 5.02(h).  The Class 1-X Certificates shall evidence ownership of the Supplemental Interest Trust Account for federal income tax purposes and the Holder thereof shall direct the Trustee, in writing, as to investment of amounts on deposit therein.  The Class 1-X Certificateholders shall be liable for any losses incurred on such investments.  In the absence of written instructions from the Class 1-X Certificateholders as to investment of funds on deposit in the Supplemental Interest Trust Account, such funds remain uninvested.  Any amounts on deposit in the Supplemental Interest Trust Account in excess of the Supplemental Interest Trust Amount on any Distribution Dat e shall be held for distribution pursuant to Section 5.02(h) on the following Distribution Date.

(d)  Upon termination of the Trust Fund, any amounts remaining in the Supplemental Interest Trust Account shall be distributed pursuant to the priorities set forth in Section 5.02(h).

(e)  It is the intention of the parties hereto that, for federal and state income and state and local franchise tax purposes, the Supplemental Interest Trust be disregarded as an entity separate from the holder of the Class 1-X Certificates unless and until the date when either (a) there is more than one Class 1-X Certificateholder or (b) any Class of Certificates in addition to the Class 1-X Certificates is recharacterized as an equity interest in the Supplemental Interest Trust for federal income tax purposes.  The Trustee shall not be responsible for any entity level tax reporting for the Supplemental Interest Trust.

To the extent that the Supplemental Interest Trust is determined to be a separate legal entity from the Trustee, any obligation of the Trustee under the Swap Agreement shall be deemed to be an obligation of the Supplemental Interest Trust.

Section 5.09.

Rights of Swap Counterparty.  

The Swap Counterparty shall be deemed a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement to the same extent as if it were a party hereto and shall have the right, upon designation of an “Early Termination Date” (as defined in the Swap Agreement), to enforce its rights under this Agreement, which rights include but are not limited to the obligation of the Trustee (A) to deposit any Net Swap Payment required pursuant to Sections 5.02(b), (d) and (f), and any Swap Termination Payment required pursuant to Sections 5.02(b), (d) and (f), into the Supplemental Interest Trust Account, (B) to deposit any amounts from the Pool 1 Basis Risk Reserve Fund required pursuant to Sections 5.02(f)(iii) into the Supplemental Interest Trust Account, (C) to pay any Net Swap Payment required pursuant to Section 5.02(h)(i) or Swap Termination Payment required pursuant to Sections 5.02(h)(ii) and (x) to the Swap Counterparty and (D) to establish and maintain the Supplemental Interest Trust Account, to make such deposits thereto, investments therein and distributions therefrom as are required pursuant to Section 5.07.  For the protection and enforcement of the provisions of this Section the Swap Counterparty shall be entitled to such relief as can be given either at law or in equity.

Section 5.10.

Termination Receipts.  

In the event of an “Early Termination Event” as defined under the Swap Agreement, (i) any Swap Termination Payment made by the Swap Counterparty to the Supplemental Interest Trust and paid pursuant to Section 5.02(h)(ix) (“Termination Receipts”) will be deposited in a segregated non-interest bearing account which shall be an Eligible Account established by the Trustee (the “Termination Receipts Account”) and (ii) any amounts received from a replacement Swap Counterparty (“Replacement Receipts”) will be deposited in a segregated non-interest bearing account which shall be an Eligible Account established by the Trustee (the “Replacement Receipts Account”).  Solely upon written direction of the Depositor, the Trustee shall invest, or cause to be invested, funds held in the Termination Receipts Account and the Replacement Receipts Ac count in time deposits of the Trustee as permitted by clause (ii) of the definition of Eligible Investments or as otherwise directed in writing by a majority of the Certificateholders.  All such investments must be payable on demand or mature on a Distribution Date or such other date as directed by the Certificateholders.  If no such direction is given by the Depositor, such funds shall remain uninvested.  All such Eligible Investments will be made in the name of the Trustee of the Supplemental Interest Trust (in its capacity as such) or its nominee.  All income and gain realized from any such investment shall be deposited in the Termination Receipts Account or the Replacement Receipts Account, as applicable, and all losses, if any, shall be borne by the related account.

(b)

The Trustee, upon receipt of all resolutions, certificates, statements, opinions, reports, documents, orders or other instruments furnished to the Trustee which are specifically required to be furnished pursuant to any provision of this Agreement, shall examine them to determine whether they are in the form required by this Agreement; provided, however, that the Trustee shall not be responsible for the accuracy or content of any such resolution, certificate, statement, opinion, report, document, order or other instrument furnished by the Master Servicer, any Servicer or the Swap Counterparty to the Trustee pursuant to this Agreement, and shall not be required to recalculate or verify any numerical information furnished to the Trustee pursuant to this Agreement.

(i)

The Trustee shall not be personally liable with respect to any action taken, suffered or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with the direction or with the consent of Holders of Certificates as provided in Section 6.18 hereof;

(iii)

No provision of this Agreement shall require the Trustee to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur any financial liability in the performance of any of its duties hereunder, or in the exercise of any of its rights or powers, if it shall have reasonable grounds for believing that repayment of such funds or adequate indemnity against such risk or liability is not reasonably assured to it; and none of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall in any event require the Trustee to perform, or be responsible for the manner of performance of, any of the obligations of the Depositor or the Master Servicer under this Agreement or the Certificate Insurer under the Certificate Insurance Policy; and

Notwithstanding the termination of its activities as Master Servicer, each terminated Master Servicer shall continue to be entitled to reimbursement to the extent provided in Section 4.02(i), (ii), (iii), (v), (vii) and (ix) to the extent such reimbursement relates to the period prior to such Master Servicer’s termination.


If any Event of Default shall occur of which a Responsible Officer of the Trustee has actual knowledge, the Trustee, shall promptly notify the Certificate Insurer, the Swap Counterparty, any NIMS Insurer and each Rating Agency of the nature and extent of such Event of Default.  The Trustee shall immediately give written notice to the Master Servicer upon the Master Servicer’s failure to remit funds on the Master Servicer Remittance Date.

Upon exercise of such option with respect to Pool 1, the Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests shall be sold to the Master Servicer at a price (the “Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests Purchase Price”) equal to the sum of (i) 100% of the unpaid principal balance of each Pool 1 Mortgage Loan on the day of such purchase plus interest accrued thereon at the applicable Mortgage Rate with respect to any such Mortgage Loan to the Due Date in the Collection Period immediately preceding the related Distribution Date to the date of such repurchase and (ii) the fair market value of any REO Property and any other property held by any Pool 1 REMIC, such fair market value to be determined by an independent appraiser or appraisers mutually agreed upon by the Master Servicer, any NIMS Insurer and the Trustee (reduced, in the case of REO Property, by (1) reasonably anticipa ted disposition costs and (2) any amount by which the fair market value as so reduced exceeds the outstanding principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan plus interest accrued thereon at the applicable Net Mortgage Rate to the date of such purchase).  If the Master Servicer elects to exercise such option, each Pool 1 REMIC created pursuant to this Agreement (other than Pooling REMIC 1) shall be terminated in such a manner so that the termination of each such REMIC shall qualify as a “qualified liquidation” under the REMIC Provisions and the Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests and the Class LT-R-1 Certificates will evidence the entire beneficial interest in the property of the Trust Fund relating to Pool 1.  Following a purchase of the Pooling REMIC 1 Regular Interests pursuant to this subsection, the Trust Fund (and Pooling REMIC 1) will remain outstanding and final payment on the Group 1 Certificates (other than the Class LT-R-1 Certificates) will be made in accordance with Section 7.03 (a)(iii) and 5.02.  The Trust Fund, as it relates Pool 1, will terminate upon the occurrence of a Trust Fund Termination Event, in accordance with Section 7.01(a).

In addition, upon exercise of such option with respect to Pool 2, the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests shall be sold to the Master Servicer at a price (the “Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests Purchase Price”) equal to the sum of (i) 100% of the unpaid principal balance of each Pool 2 Mortgage Loan on the day of such purchase plus interest accrued thereon at the applicable Mortgage Rate with respect to any such Mortgage Loan to the Due Date in the Collection Period immediately preceding the related Distribution Date to the date of such repurchase and (ii) the fair market value of any REO Property and any other property held by any Pool 2 REMIC, such fair market value to be determined by an independent appraiser or appraisers mutually agreed upon by the Master Servicer, any NIMS Insurer and the Trustee (reduced, in the case of REO Property, by (1) reasonably anticipated disposition costs and (2) any amount by which the fair market value as so reduced exceeds the outstanding principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan plus interest accrued thereon at the applicable Net Mortgage Rate to the date of such purchase).  If the Master Servicer elects to exercise such option, each Pool 2 REMIC created pursuant to this Agreement (other than Pooling REMIC 2) shall be terminated in such a manner so that the termination of each such REMIC shall qualify as a “qualified liquidation” under the REMIC Provisions and the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests and the Class LT-R-2 Certificates will evidence the entire beneficial interest in the property of the Trust Fund.  Following a purchase of the Pooling REMIC 2 Regular Interests pursuant to this subsection, the Trust Fund (and Pooling REMIC 2) will remain outstanding and final payment on the Group 2 Certificates (other than the Class LT-R-2 Certificates) will be made in accordance with Section 7.03(a)(iii) and 5.02.  The Trust Fund, as it relat es to Pool 2, will terminate upon the occurrence of a Trust Fund Termination Event, in accordance with Section 7.01(a).


The Trust Fund will terminate upon the occurrence of a Trust Fund Termination Event, in accordance with Section 7.01(a).

Power to Act; Procedures.  

(a)

The Master Servicer shall master service the Mortgage Loans and shall have full power and authority, subject to the REMIC Provisions and the provisions of Article X hereof, and each Servicer shall have full power and authority (to the extent provided in the applicable Servicing Agreement) to do any and all things that it may deem necessary or desirable in connection with the servicing and administration of the Mortgage Loans, including but not limited to the power and authority (i) to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Certificateholders and the Trustee, customary consents or waivers and other instruments and documents, (ii) to consent to transfers of any Mortgaged Property and assumptions of the Mortgage Notes and related Mortgages, (iii) to collect any Insurance Proceeds and Liquidation Proceeds, and (iv) to effectuate foreclosure or other conversion of the ownership of the Mortgaged Property securing any Mortgage Loan, in each case, in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the applicable Servicing Agreement, as applicable; provided that the Master Servicer shall not take, or knowingly permit any Servicer to take, any action that is inconsistent with or prejudices the interests of the Trust Fund or the Certificateholders in any Mortgage Loan or the rights and interests of the Depositor, the Trustee, the Certificateholders under this Agreement.  The Master Servicer further is authorized and empowered by the Trustee, on behalf of the Certificateholders and the Trustee, in its own name or in the name of any Servicer (to the extent permitted in the related Servicing Agreement), when the Master Servicer or a Servicer, as the case may be, believes it is appropriate in its best judgment to register any Mortgage Loan with MERS, or cause the removal from the registration of any Mortgage Loan on the MERS system, to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Trustee and the Certificateholders or any o f them, any and all instruments of assignment and other comparable instruments with respect to such assignment or re-recording of a Mortgage in the name of MERS, solely as nominee for the Trustee and its successor and assigns.  The Master Servicer shall represent and protect the interests of the Trust Fund in the same manner as it protects its own interests in mortgage loans in its own portfolio in any claim, proceeding or litigation regarding a Mortgage Loan and shall not make or knowingly permit any Servicer to make any modification, waiver or amendment of any term of any Mortgage Loan that would cause an Adverse REMIC Event.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Master Servicer in its own name or in the name of a Servicer, and each Servicer, to the extent such authority is delegated to such Servicer under the applicable Servicing Agreement, is hereby authorized and empowered by the Trustee when the Master Servicer or such Servicer, as the case may be, believes it appropriate in its best judgment and in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices and the applicable Servicing Agreement, to execute and deliver, on behalf of itself and the Certificateholders, the Trustee or any of them, any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge and all other comparable instruments, with respect to the Mortgage Loans and with respect to the Mortgaged Properties.  The Trustee shall execute, upon request, any powers of attorney furnished to it by the Master Servicer empowering the Master Servicer or any Servicer to execute and deliver instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge, and to foreclose upon or otherwise liquidate Mortgaged Property, and to appeal, prosecute or defend in any court action relating to the Mortgage Loans or the Mortgaged Property, in accordance with the applicable Servicing Agreement and this Agreement, and the Trustee shall execute and deliver such other documents, as the Mas ter Servicer may request, necessary or appropriate to enable the Master Servicer to master service the Mortgage Loans and carry out its duties hereunder and to allow such Servicer to service the Mortgage Loans, in each case in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices (and the Trustee shall have no liability for misuse of any such powers of attorney by the Master Servicer or any Servicer).  If the Master Servicer or the Trustee has been advised that it is likely that the laws of the state in which action is to be taken prohibit such action if taken in the name of the Trustee or that the Trustee would be adversely affected under the “doing business” or tax laws of such state if such action is taken in its name, then upon request of the Trustee the Master Servicer shall join with the Trustee in the appointment of a co-trustee pursuant to Section 6.09 hereof.  In the performance of its duties hereunder, the Master Servicer shall be an independent contractor and shall not, except in those instances where it is taking action in the name of the Trustee, be deemed to be the agent of the Trustee.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the Master Servicer shall not without the Trustee’s written consent:  (i) initiate any action, suit or proceeding solely under the Trustee’s name without indicating the Master Servicer’s representative capacity or (ii) take any action with the intent to cause, and which actually does cause, the Trustee to be registered to do business in any state.


(b)

In master servicing and administering the Mortgage Loans, the Master Servicer shall employ procedures, and shall exercise the same care that it customarily employs and exercises master servicing and administering loans for its own account, giving due consideration to Accepted Servicing Practices where such practices do not conflict with this Agreement.  Consistent with the foregoing, the Master Servicer may, and may permit any Servicer to, in its discretion (i) waive any late payment charge (but not any Prepayment Premium, except as set forth below) and (ii) extend the due dates for payments due on a Mortgage Note for a period not greater than 120 days; provided, however, that the maturity of any Mortgage Loan shall not be extended past the date on which the final payment is due on the latest maturing Mortgage Loan as of the Cut-off Date.  In the event of any extension described in clause ( ii) above, the Master Servicer shall make or cause such Servicer (if required by the applicable Servicing Agreement) to make Advances on the related Mortgage Loan in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.04 on the basis of the amortization schedule of such Mortgage Loan without modification thereof by reason of such extension.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Master Servicer shall not make or knowingly permit any modification, waiver or amendment of any material term of any Mortgage Loan unless:  (1) such Mortgage Loan is in default or default by the related Mortgagor is, in the reasonable judgment of the Master Servicer or the applicable Servicer, reasonably foreseeable, (2) in the case of a waiver of a Prepayment Premium if (a) such Mortgage Loan is in default or default by the related Mortgagor is, in the reasonable judgment of the Master Servicer or applicable Servicer, reasonably foreseeable, and such waiver would maximize recovery of total proceeds taking into account the value of such Prepayment Premium and the related Mortgage Loan or (b) if the prepayment is not a result of a refinancing by the Servicer or any of its affiliates and (i) such Mortgage Loan is in default or default by the related Mortgagor is, in the reasonable judgment of the Master Servicer or the applicable Servicer, reasonably foreseeable, and such waiver would maximize recovery of total proceeds taking into account the value of such Prepayment Premium and the related Mortgage Loan, or (ii) the collection of the Prepayment Premium would be in violation of applicable laws or (iii) the collection of such Prepayment Premium would be considered “predatory” pursuant to written guidance published or issued by any applicable federal, state or local regulatory authority acting in its official capacity and having jurisdiction over such matters, and (3) the Master Servicer shall have provided or caused to be provided to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel (if required by the applicable Ser vicing Agreement) (which opinion shall, if provided by the Master Servicer, be an expense reimbursed from the Collection Account pursuant to Section 4.02(v)) in writing to the effect that such modification, waiver or amendment would not cause an Adverse REMIC Event; provided, in no event shall an Opinion of Counsel be required for the waiver of a Prepayment Premium under clause (2) above.


Section 9.05.

Enforcement of Servicer’s and Master Servicer’s Obligations.  

(a)

Each Servicing Agreement requires the applicable Servicer, respectively, to service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the provisions thereof.  References in this Agreement to actions taken or to be taken by the Master Servicer include actions taken or to be taken by a Servicer on behalf of the Master Servicer.  Any fees and other amounts payable to a Servicer shall be deducted from amounts remitted to the Master Servicer by such Servicer to the extent permitted by the applicable Servicing Agreement and shall not be an obligation of the Trust Fund, the Trustee or the Master Servicer.


(b)

The Master Servicer shall not be required to (i) take any action with respect to the servicing of any Mortgage Loan that the related Servicer is not required to take under the related Servicing Agreement and (ii) cause a Servicer to take any action or refrain from taking any action if the related Servicing Agreement does not require the Servicer to take such action or refrain from taking such action; in both cases notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement that requires the Master Servicer to take such action or cause the Servicer to take such action.


(c)

The Master Servicer, for the benefit of the Trustee and the Certificateholders, shall use its reasonable best efforts to enforce the obligations of each Servicer under the related Servicing Agreement, and shall, upon obtaining actual knowledge of the failure of a Servicer to perform its obligations in accordance therewith, to the extent that such non-performance of such obligations would have a material adverse effect on a Mortgage Loan, the Trust Fund or the Certificateholders (determined in the case of the Insured Certificates without regard to the Certificate Insurance Policy), terminate the rights and obligations of such Servicer thereunder and either act as servicer of the related Mortgage Loans or cause the other parties hereto to enter into a Servicing Agreement (and such parties hereby agree to execute and deliver any such successor Servicing Agreement), with a successor Servicer.  Such enforce ment, including, without limitation, the legal prosecution of claims, termination of Servicing Agreements and the pursuit of other appropriate remedies, shall be in such form and carried out to such an extent and at such time as the Master Servicer, in its good faith business judgment, would require were it the owner of the related Mortgage Loans.  The Master Servicer shall pay the costs of such enforcement at its own expense, and shall be reimbursed therefor initially (i) from a general recovery resulting from such enforcement only to the extent, if any, that such recovery exceeds all amounts due in respect of the related Mortgage Loans, (ii) from a specific recovery of costs, expenses or attorneys’ fees against the party against whom such enforcement is directed, and then, (iii) to the extent that such amounts are insufficient to reimburse the Master Servicer for the costs of such enforcement, from the Collection Account.


(d)

The Master Servicer shall be entitled to conclusively rely on any certifications or other information provided by the Servicers under the terms of the applicable Servicing Agreement, in its preparation of any certifications, filings or reports, in accordance with the terms hereof or as may be required by applicable law or regulation.


Section 9.06.

Collection of Taxes, Assessments and Similar Items.  

(a)

To the extent provided in the applicable Servicing Agreement, the Master Servicer shall cause each Servicer to establish and maintain one or more custodial accounts at a depository institution (which may be a depository institution with which the Master Servicer or any Servicer establishes accounts in the ordinary course of its servicing activities), the accounts of which are insured to the maximum extent permitted by the FDIC (each, an “Escrow Account”) and to deposit therein any collections of amounts received with respect to amounts due for taxes, assessments, water rates, Standard Hazard Insurance Policy premiums, Payaheads, if applicable, or any comparable items for the account of the Mortgagors.  Withdrawals from any Escrow Account may be made (to the extent amounts have been escrowed for such purpose) only in accordance with the applicable Servicing Agreement.  Each Servicer shall be entitled to all investment income not required to be paid to Mortgagors on any Escrow Account maintained by such Servicer.  The Master Servicer shall make (or cause to be made) to the extent provided in the applicable Servicing Agreement advances to the extent necessary in order to effect timely payment of taxes, water rates, assessments, Standard Hazard Insurance Policy premiums or comparable items in connection with the related Mortgage Loan (to the extent that the Mortgagor is required, but fails, to pay such items), provided that it or the applicable Servicer has determined that the funds so advanced are recoverable from escrow payments, reimbursement pursuant to Section 4.02 or otherwise.


(b)

Costs incurred by the Master Servicer or by any Servicer in effecting the timely payment of taxes and assessments on the properties subject to the Mortgage Loans may be added to the amount owing under the related Mortgage Note where the terms of the Mortgage Note so permit; provided, however, that the addition of any such cost shall not be taken into account for purposes of calculating the distributions to be made to Certificateholders.  Such costs, to the extent that they are unanticipated, extraordinary costs, and not ordinary or routine costs shall be recoverable as a Servicing Advance by the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 4.02.


Section 9.07.

Termination of Servicing Agreements; Successor Servicers.  

(a)

The Master Servicer shall be entitled to terminate the rights and obligations of any Servicer under the applicable Servicing Agreement in accordance with the terms and conditions of such Servicing Agreement and without any limitation by virtue of this Agreement; provided, however, that in the event of termination of any Servicing Agreement by the Master Servicer or the related Servicer, the Master Servicer shall either act as Servicer of the related Mortgage Loans or provide for the servicing of the Mortgage Loans by a successor Servicer to be appointed as provided in the applicable Servicing Agreement.


The parties acknowledge that notwithstanding the preceding sentence, there may be a transition period, not to exceed 90 days, in order to effect the transfer of servicing to a successor Servicer.  The Master Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed from each Servicer (or by the Trust Fund, if the Servicer is unable to fulfill its obligations hereunder) for all costs associated with the transfer of servicing from the predecessor servicer, including without limitation, any costs or expenses associated with the complete transfer or all servicing data and the completion, correction or manipulation of such servicing data, as may be required by the Master Servicer to correct any errors or insufficiencies in the servicing data or otherwise to enable the Master Servicer to service the Mortgage Loans properly and effectively.


(b)

If the Master Servicer acts as a successor Servicer, it will not assume liability for the representations and warranties of the Servicer, if any, that it replaces.  The Master Servicer shall use reasonable efforts to have the successor Servicer assume liability for the representations and warranties made by the terminated Servicer in the related Servicing Agreement, and in the event of any such assumption by the successor Servicer, the Trustee or the Master Servicer, as applicable, may, in the exercise of its business judgment, release the terminated Servicer from liability for such representations and warranties.


(c)

If the Master Servicer acts as a successor Servicer, it will have no obligation to make an Advance if it determines in its reasonable judgment that such Advance is non-recoverable.  To the extent that the Master Servicer is unable to find a successor Servicer that is willing to service the Mortgage Loans for the Servicing Fee because of the obligation of the Servicer to make Advances regardless of whether such Advance is recoverable, the applicable Servicing Agreement may be amended to provide that the successor Servicer shall have no obligation to make an Advance if it determines in its reasonable judgment that such Advance is non-recoverable and provides an Officer’s Certificate to such effect to the Master Servicer and the Trustee.


Section 9.08.

Master Servicer Liable for Enforcement.  

Notwithstanding any Servicing Agreement, the Master Servicer shall remain obligated and liable to the Trustee and the Certificateholders in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, to the extent of its obligations hereunder, without diminution of such obligation or liability by virtue of such Servicing Agreements.  The Master Servicer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Mortgage Loans are serviced in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to enforce the provisions of each Servicing Agreement for the benefit of the Certificateholders.  The Master Servicer shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with any Servicer for indemnification of the Master Servicer and nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification.  Except as expressly set forth herein, the Master Servicer shall have no liability for the acts or omissions of any Servicer in the performance by such Servicer of its obligations under the related Servicing Agreement.


Section 9.09.

No Contractual Relationship Between Any Servicer and Trustee or Depositor.  

Any Servicing Agreement that may be entered into and any other transactions or services relating to the Mortgage Loans involving any Servicer in its capacity as such and not as an originator shall be deemed to be between such Servicer, the Seller and the Master Servicer, and the Trustee and the Depositor shall not be deemed parties thereto and shall have no obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to such Servicer except as set forth in Section 9.10 hereof, but shall have rights thereunder as third party beneficiaries.


Section 9.10.

Assumption of Servicing Agreement by Trustee.  

(a)

In the event the Master Servicer shall for any reason no longer be the Master Servicer (including by reason of any Event of Default under this Agreement), after a period not to exceed ninety days after the issuance of any notice of termination pursuant to Section 6.14 or Section 9.28, as applicable, the Trustee shall, in accordance with Section 6.14, thereupon assume all of the rights and obligations of such Master Servicer hereunder and under each Servicing Agreement entered into with respect to the Mortgage Loans.  The Trustee, its designee or any successor master servicer appointed by the Trustee shall be deemed to have assumed all of the Master Servicer’s interest herein and therein to the same extent as if such Servicing Agreement had been assigned to the assuming party, except that the Master Servicer shall not thereby be relieved of any liability or obligations of the Master Servicer under such Servicing Agreement accruing prior to its replacement as Master Servicer, and shall be liable to the Trustee, and hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Trustee from and against all costs, damages, expenses and liabilities (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by the Trustee as a result of such liability or obligations of the Master Servicer and in connection with the Trustee’s assumption (but not its performance, except to the extent that costs or liability of the Trustee are created or increased as a result of negligent or wrongful acts or omissions of the Master Servicer prior to its replacement as Master Servicer) of the Master Servicer’s obligations, duties or responsibilities thereunder; provided that the Master Servicer shall not indemnify or hold harmless the Trustee against negligent or willful misconduct of the Trustee.


(b)

The Master Servicer that has been terminated shall, upon request of the Trustee but at the expense of such Master Servicer, deliver to the assuming party all documents and records relating to each Servicing Agreement and the related Mortgage Loans and an accounting of amounts collected and held by it and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of each Servicing Agreement to the assuming party.


Section 9.11.

Due-on-Sale Clauses; Assumption Agreements; Easements.

(a)

To the extent provided in the applicable Servicing Agreement, to the extent Mortgage Loans contain enforceable due-on-sale clauses, and to the extent that the Master Servicer has knowledge of the conveyance of a Mortgaged Property, the Master Servicer shall cause the related Servicer to enforce such clauses in accordance with the applicable Servicing Agreement.  If applicable law prohibits the enforcement of a due-on-sale clause or such clause is otherwise not enforced in accordance with the applicable Servicing Agreement, and, as a consequence, a Mortgage Loan is assumed, the original Mortgagor may be released from liability in accordance with the applicable Servicing Agreement.


(b)

The Master Servicer or the related Servicer, as the case may be, shall be entitled to approve a request from a Mortgagor for the granting of an easement thereon in favor of another Person or any alteration or demolition of the related Mortgaged Property if it has determined, exercising its good faith business judgment in the same manner as it would if it were the owner of the related Mortgage Loan, that the security for, and the timely and full collectability of, such Mortgage Loan would not be materially adversely affected thereby.  Any fee collected by the Master Servicer or the related Servicer for processing such a request will be retained by the Master Servicer or such Servicer as additional servicing compensation.


Section 9.12.

Release of Mortgage Files.

(a)

Upon (i) becoming aware of the payment in full of any Mortgage Loan or (ii) the receipt by the Master Servicer of a notification that payment in full has been or will be escrowed in a manner customary for such purposes, the Master Servicer shall, or shall cause the applicable Servicer to, promptly notify the Trustee (or the applicable Custodian) by a certification (which certification shall include a statement to the effect that all amounts received in connection with such payment that are required to be deposited in the Collection Account maintained by the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 4.01 hereof have been or will be so deposited) of a Servicing Officer and shall request (on the form attached hereto as Exhibit C or on the form attached to the related Custodial Agreement) the Trustee or the applicable Custodian, to deliver to the applicable Servicer the related Mortgage File; provided, however, that in lieu of sending a hard copy certification of a Servicing Officer, the Master Servicer may, or may cause, the Servicer to, deliver the request for release in a mutually agreeable electronic format, and to the extent that such a request, on its face, originates from a Servicing Officer, no original signature shall be required.  Upon receipt of such certification and request, the Trustee or the applicable Custodian (with the consent, and at the direction of the Trustee), shall promptly release the related Mortgage File to the applicable Servicer and neither the Trustee nor the applicable Custodian shall have any further responsibility with regard to such Mortgage File.  Upon any such payment in full, the Master Servicer is authorized, and each Servicer, to the extent such authority is provided for under the applicable Servicing Agreement, is authorized, to give, as agent for the Trustee, as the mortgagee under the Mortgage that secured the Mortgage Loan, an instrument of satisfaction (or ass ignment of mortgage without recourse) regarding the Mortgaged Property subject to the Mortgage, which instrument of satisfaction or assignment, as the case may be, shall be delivered to the Person or Persons entitled thereto against receipt therefor of such payment, it being understood and agreed that no expenses incurred in connection with such instrument of satisfaction or assignment, as the case may be, shall be chargeable to the Collection Account.


(b)

From time to time and as appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of any Mortgage Loan and in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices and the applicable Servicing Agreement, the Trustee shall execute such documents as shall be prepared and furnished to the Trustee by the Master Servicer, or by a Servicer (in form reasonably acceptable to the Trustee) and as are necessary to the prosecution of any such proceedings.  The Trustee or the applicable Custodian, shall, upon request of the Master Servicer, or of a Servicer, and delivery to the Trustee or the applicable Custodian, of a trust receipt signed by a Servicing Officer substantially in the form of Exhibit C, release the related Mortgage File held in its possession or control to the Master Servicer (or the applicable Servicer).  Such trust receipt shall obligate the Master Servicer or Servicer to return the Mortgage File to the Trustee or the applicable Custodian, as applicable, when the need therefor by the Master Servicer or Servicer no longer exists unless (i) the Mortgage Loan shall be liquidated, in which case, upon receipt of a certificate of a Servicing Officer similar to that hereinabove specified, the trust receipt shall be released by the Trustee or the applicable Custodian, as applicable, to the Master Servicer (or the applicable Servicer) or (ii) the Mortgage File has been delivered directly or through a Servicer to an attorney, or to a public trustee or other public official as required by law, for purposes of initiating or pursuing legal action or other proceedings for the foreclosure of the Mortgaged Property either judicially or non-judicially, and the Master Servicer has delivered directly or through a Servicer to the Trustee a certificate of a Servicing Officer certifying as to the name and address of the Person to which such Mortgage File or such document was delivered and the purpose of such delivery.


Section 9.13.

(b)

All Mortgage Files and funds collected or held by, or under the control of, the Master Servicer, or any Servicer, in respect of any Mortgage Loans, whether from the collection of principal and interest payments or from Liquidation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds, shall be held by the Master Servicer, or by any Servicer, for and on behalf of the Trustee and the Certificateholders and shall be and remain the sole and exclusive property of the Trustee; provided, however, that the Master Servicer and each Servicer shall be entitled to setoff against, and deduct from, any such funds any amounts that are properly due and payable to the Master Servicer or such Servicer under this Agreement or the applicable Servicing Agreement and shall be authorized to remit such funds to the Trustee in accordance with this Agreement.


(c)

The Master Servicer hereby acknowledges that concurrently with the execution of this Agreement, the Trustee shall own or, to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction shall deem the conveyance of the Mortgage Loans from the Seller to the Depositor not to constitute a sale, the Trustee shall have a security interest in the Mortgage Loans and in all Mortgage Files representing such Mortgage Loans and in all funds and investment property now or hereafter held by, or under the control of, a Servicer or the Master Servicer that are collected by any Servicer or the Master Servicer in connection with the Mortgage Loans, whether as scheduled installments of principal and interest or as full or partial prepayments of principal or interest or as Liquidation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds or otherwise, and in all proceeds of the foregoing and proceeds of proceeds (but excluding any fee or other amounts to whic h a Servicer is entitled under the applicable Servicing Agreement, or the Master Servicer or the Depositor is entitled to hereunder); and the Master Servicer agrees that so long as the Mortgage Loans are assigned to and held by the Trustee or any Custodian, all documents or instruments constituting part of the Mortgage Files, and such funds relating to the Mortgage Loans which come into the possession or custody of, or which are subject to the control of, the Master Servicer or any Servicer shall be held by the Master Servicer or such Servicer for and on behalf of the Trustee as the Trustee’s agent and bailee for purposes of perfecting the Trustee’s security interest therein as provided by the applicable Uniform Commercial Code or other applicable laws.


(d)

The Master Servicer agrees that it shall not, and shall not authorize any Servicer to, create, incur or subject any Mortgage Loans, or any funds that are deposited in any Custodial Account, Escrow Account or the Collection Account, or any funds that otherwise are or may become due or payable to the Trustee, to any claim, lien, security interest, judgment, levy, writ of attachment or other encumbrance, nor assert by legal action or otherwise any claim or right of setoff against any Mortgage Loan or any funds collected on, or in connection with, a Mortgage Loan.

Section 9.21.

Compensation to the Master Servicer.  

The Master Servicer shall be entitled to withdraw from the Collection Account, subject to Section 5.05, the Master Servicing Fee to the extent permitted by Section 4.02.  Servicing compensation in the form of assumption fees, if any, late payment charges, as collected, if any, or otherwise (but not including any Prepayment Premium) shall be retained by the Master Servicer (or the applicable Servicer) and shall not be deposited in the Collection Account.  If the Master Servicer does not retain or withdraw the Master Servicing Fee from the Collection Account as provided herein, the Master Servicer shall be entitled to direct the Trustee to pay the Master Servicing Fee to such Master Servicer by withdrawal from the Certificate Account to the extent that payments have been received with respect to the applicable Mortgage Loan.  The Master Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its activities hereunder and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor except as provided in this Agreement.  Pursuant to Section 4.01(e), all income and gain realized from any investment of funds in the Collection Account shall be for the benefit of the Master Servicer as compensation.  The provisions of this Section 9.21 are subject to the provisions of Section 6.14.

(b)

The Closing Date is hereby designated as the “Startup Day” of each REMIC within the meaning of section 86OG(a)(9) of the Code.  The latest possible maturity date for purposes of Treasury Regulation 1.86OG-1(a)(4) will be the Latest Possible Maturity Date.


(c)

The Trustee shall represent the Trust Fund in any administrative or judicial proceeding relating to an examination or audit by any governmental taxing authority with respect thereto.  The Trustee shall pay any and all tax related expenses (not including taxes) of each REMIC, including but not limited to any professional fees or expenses related to audits or any administrative or judicial proceedings with respect to such REMIC that involve the Internal Revenue Service or state tax authorities, but only to the extent that (i) such expenses are ordinary or routine expenses, including expenses of a routine audit but not expenses of litigation (except as described in (ii)); or (ii) such expenses or liabilities (including taxes and penalties) are attributable to the negligence or willful misconduct of the Trustee in fulfilling its duties hereunder (including its duties as tax return preparer).  The Trus tee shall be entitled to reimbursement of expenses to the extent provided in clause (i) above from the Certificate Account; provided, however, the Trustee shall not be entitled to reimbursement for expenses incurred in connection with the preparation of tax returns and other reports as required by Section 6.20 and this Section.


(d)

The Trustee shall prepare, the Trustee shall sign, and the Trustee will file, all of each REMIC’s federal and applicable state tax and information returns as such REMIC’s direct representative.  As used herein, applicable state tax and information returns shall mean returns as may be required by the laws of any state the applicability of which to the Trust Fund shall have been confirmed to the Trustee in writing either by the delivery to the Trustee of an Opinion of Counsel to such effect, or by delivery to the Trustee of a written notification to such effect by the taxing authority of such state.  The expenses of preparing and filing such returns shall be borne by the Trustee.


(e)

The Trustee or its designee shall perform on behalf of each REMIC all reporting and other tax compliance duties that are the responsibility of such REMIC under the Code, the REMIC Provisions, or other compliance guidance issued by the Internal Revenue Service or any state or local taxing authority.  Among its other duties, if required by the Code, the REMIC Provisions, or other such guidance, the Trustee shall provide (i) to the Treasury or other governmental authority such information as is necessary for the application of any tax relating to the transfer of a Residual Certificate to any disqualified person or organization pursuant to Treasury Regulation 1.860E-2(a)(5) and any person designated in Section 860E(e)(3) of the Code and (ii) to the Certificateholders such information or reports as are required by the Code or REMIC Provisions.


The Trustee shall be entitled to receive reasonable compensation from the Trust Fund for the performance of its duties under this subsection (e); provided, however, that such compensation shall not exceed $5,000 per year ; provided, further, that, after a Section 7.01(d) Purchase Event, any expenses incurred by the Trustee in connection with such Section 7.01(d) Purchase Event shall be reimbursed to the Trustee, regardless of the limitation set forth above, in accordance with Section 4.04(b).


(f)

The Trustee, the Master Servicer and the Holders of Certificates shall take any action, within their respective control and scope of their duties, or cause any REMIC to take any action necessary to create or maintain the status of any REMIC as a REMIC under the REMIC Provisions and shall assist each other as necessary to create or maintain such status.  Neither the Trustee, the Master Servicer nor the Holder of any Residual Certificate shall knowingly take any action, within their respective control, cause any REMIC to take any action or fail to take (or fail to cause to be taken) any action, within their respective control and scope of their duties, that, under the REMIC Provisions, if taken or not taken, as the case may be, could result in an Adverse REMIC Event unless the Trustee and the Master Servicer have received an Opinion of Counsel (at the expense of the party seeking to take such action) to the effect that the contemplated action will not result in an Adverse REMIC Event.  In addition, prior to taking any action with respect to any REMIC or the assets therein, or causing any REMIC to take any action, which is not expressly permitted under the terms of this Agreement, any Holder of a Residual Certificate will consult with the Trustee, the Master Servicer or their respective designees, in writing, with respect to whether such action could cause an Adverse REMIC Event to occur with respect to any REMIC, and no such Person shall take any such action or cause any REMIC to take any such action as to which the Trustee or the Master Servicer has advised it in writing that an Adverse REMIC Event could occur.


(g)

Each Holder of a Residual Certificate shall pay when due any and all taxes imposed on the related REMIC by federal or state governmental authorities.  To the extent that such taxes are not paid by a Residual Certificateholder, the Trustee shall pay any remaining REMIC taxes out of current or future amounts otherwise distributable to the Holder of the Residual Certificate in any such REMIC or, if no such amounts are available, out of other amounts held in the Collection Account, and shall reduce amounts otherwise payable to holders of regular interests in any such REMIC, as the case may be.


(h)

The Trustee shall, for federal income tax purposes, maintain books and records with respect to each REMIC on a calendar year and on an accrual basis.


(i)

No additional contributions of assets shall be made to any REMIC, except as expressly provided in this Agreement.


(j)

Neither the Trustee nor the Master Servicer shall enter into any arrangement by which any REMIC will receive a fee or other compensation for services.


(k)

Upon the request of any Rating Agency, the Trustee shall deliver an Officer’s Certificate stating, without regard to any actions taken by any party other than the Trustee, the Trustee’s compliance with provisions of this Section 10.01.


(l)

The Trustee shall treat each of the Pool 1 Basis Risk Reserve Fund and the Supplemental Interest Trust as an outside reserve fund within the meaning of Treasury Regulation 1.860G-2(h) that is owned by the Holder of the Class 1-X Certificates and that is not an asset of any REMIC.  The Trustee shall treat the Pool 2 Basis Risk Reserve Fund as an outside reserve fund within the meaning of Treasury Regulation 1.860G-2(h) that is owned by the Holder of the Class 2-X Certificates and that is not an asset of any REMIC.  The Trustee shall treat the rights of the Certificateholders (other than the Holders of the Class 1-X, Class 2-X, Class LT-R-1, Class LT-R-2, Class R-1, Class R-2, Class 1-P and Class 2-P Certificates) to receive Basis Risk Shortfalls and Unpaid Basis Risk Shortfalls as rights in an interest rate cap contract written by the Class 1-X Certificateholder in favor of the holders of the Group 1 Certificates and by the Class 2-X Certificateholders in favor of the holders of Group 2 Certificates.  Thus, each Certificateholder (other than the Holders of the Class 1-X, Class 2-X, Class LT-R-1, Class LT-R-2, Class R-1, Class R-2, Class 1-P and Class 2-P Certificates) shall be treated as representing not only ownership of regular interests in a REMIC, but also ownership of an interest in an interest rate cap contract.  Pursuant to each such notional principal contract, all beneficial owners of Group 1 Certificates shall be treated as having agreed to pay, on each Distribution Date, to the beneficial owners of the Class 1-X Certificates an aggregate amount equal to the excess, if any, of (i) the amount payable on such Distribution Date on the interest in the Upper Tier REMIC 1 corresponding to such Class of Certificates over (ii) the amount payable on such Class of Certificates on such Distribution Date (such excess, a “Class I Shortfall”).  A Class I Shortfall payable f rom interest collections shall be allocated to each Class of Certificates to the extent that interest accrued on such Class for the related Accrual Period at the Certificate Interest Rate for a Class, computed by substituting “REMIC 1 Net Funds Cap” for “Pool 1 Net Funds Cap” in the definition thereof, exceeds the amount of interest accrued for the related Accrual Period based on the Pool 1 Net Funds Cap, and a Class I Shortfall payable from principal collections shall be allocated to the most subordinate Class of Certificates with an outstanding principal balance to the extent of such balance.  However, any payment from the Group 1 Certificates of a Class I Shortfall shall be treated for tax purposes as having been received by the beneficial owners of such Certificates in respect of their Interests in the Upper Tier REMIC 1 and as having been paid by such beneficial owners to the Supplemental Interest Trust pursuant to the notional principal contract.    For ta x purposes, the notional principal contract shall be deemed to have a value in favor of the Certificates entitled to receive Basis Risk Shortfalls and Unpaid Basis Risk Shortfalls of $5,000 with respect to the Group 1 Certificates and of $4,970 with respect to the Group 2 Certificates as of the Closing Date.


(m)

[Reserved]


(n)

Notwithstanding the priority and sources of payments set forth in Article 5 hereof or otherwise, the Trustee shall account for all distributions with respect to a Class of Certificates in amounts that differ from those payable pursuant to the REMIC regular interest corresponding to such Class as amounts paid or received (as appropriate) pursuant to the interest rate cap contracts provided for in this Section.  In no event shall any such amounts be treated as payments with respect to a “regular interest” in a REMIC within the meaning of Code Section 860G(a)(1).


Section 10.02.

Prohibited Transactions and Activities.  

None of the Depositor, the Master Servicer or the Trustee shall sell, dispose of, or substitute for any of the Mortgage Loans, except in a disposition pursuant to (i) the foreclosure of a Mortgage Loan, (ii) the bankruptcy of the Trust Fund, (iii) the termination of each REMIC pursuant to Article VII of this Agreement, (iv) a substitution pursuant to Article II of this Agreement or (v) a repurchase of Mortgage Loans pursuant to Article II of this Agreement, nor acquire any assets for any REMIC, nor sell or dispose of any investments in the Certificate Account for gain, nor accept any contributions to any REMIC after the Closing Date, unless it has received an Opinion of Counsel (at the expense of the party causing such sale, disposition, or substitution) that such disposition, acquisition, substitution, or acceptance will not (a) result in an Adverse REMIC Event, (b) affect the distribution of interest or p rincipal on the Certificates, or (c) result in the encumbrance of the assets transferred or assigned to the Trust Fund (except pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement).  


Section 10.03.

Indemnification with Respect to Certain Taxes and Loss of REMIC Status.   

Upon the occurrence of an Adverse REMIC Event due to the negligent performance by the Trustee of its duties and obligations set forth herein, the Trustee shall indemnify the Holder of the related Residual Certificate or the Trust Fund, as applicable, against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses (“Losses”) resulting from such negligence; provided, however, that the Trustee shall not be liable for any such Losses attributable to the action or inaction of the Master Servicer, the Depositor, the Class 1-X or Class 2-X Certificateholder or the Holder of a Residual Certificate, as applicable, nor for any such Losses resulting from misinformation provided by the Holder of such Residual Certificate on which the Trustee has relied.  The foregoing shall not be deemed to limit or restrict the rights and remedies of the Holder of such Residual Certificate now or hereafter e xisting at law or in equity.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, in no event shall the Trustee have any liability (1) for any action or omission that is taken in accordance with and in compliance with the express terms of, or which is expressly permitted by the terms of, this Agreement or any Servicing Agreement, (2) for any Losses other than arising out of a negligent performance by the Trustee of its duties and obligations set forth herein, and (3) for any special or consequential damages to Certificateholders (in addition to payment of principal and interest on the Certificates).


Section 10.04.

REO Property.  

(a)

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Master Servicer, acting on behalf of the Trustee hereunder, shall not, except to the extent provided in the applicable Servicing Agreement, knowingly permit any Servicer to, rent, lease, or otherwise earn income on behalf of any REMIC with respect to any REO Property which might cause an Adverse REMIC Event unless the Master Servicer has advised, or has caused the applicable Servicer to advise, the Trustee in writing to the effect that, under the REMIC Provisions, such action would not result in an Adverse REMIC Event.


(b)

The Master Servicer shall cause the applicable Servicer (to the extent provided in its Servicing Agreement) to make reasonable efforts to sell any REO Property for its fair market value.  In any event, however, the Master Servicer shall, or shall cause the applicable Servicer to, dispose of any REO Property within three years of its acquisition by the Trust Fund unless the Master Servicer has received a grant of extension from the Internal Revenue Service to the effect that, under the REMIC Provisions, the REMIC may hold REO Property for a longer period without causing an Adverse REMIC Event.  If the Master Servicer has received such an extension, then the Master Servicer, acting on the Trustee’s behalf hereunder, shall, or shall cause the applicable Servicer to, continue to attempt to sell the REO Property for its fair market value for such period longer than three years as such extension pe rmits (the “Extended Period”).  If the Master Servicer has not received such an extension and the Master Servicer or the applicable Servicer, acting on behalf of the Trustee hereunder, is unable to sell the REO Property within 33 months after its acquisition by the Trust Fund or if the Master Servicer has received such an extension, and the Master Servicer or the applicable Servicer is unable to sell the REO Property within the period ending three months before the close of the Extended Period, the Master Servicer shall cause the applicable Servicer, before the end of the three year period or the Extended Period, as applicable, to (i) purchase such REO Property at a price equal to the REO Property’s fair market value or (ii) auction the REO Property to the highest bidder (which may be the applicable Servicer) in an auction reasonably designed to produce a fair price prior to the expiration of the three-year period or the Extended Period, as the case may be.

(vi)

The Seller shall, at its cost and expense, take such steps, or cause the transferring Servicer to take such steps, as may be necessary or appropriate to effectuate and evidence the transfer of the servicing of the specified Mortgage Loans to such successor or replacement servicer, including, but not limited to, the following: (A) to the extent required by the terms of the Mortgage Loans and by applicable federal and state laws and regulations, the Seller shall cause the prior Servicer to timely mail to each obligor under a Mortgage Loan any required notices or disclosures describing the transfer of servicing of the Mortgage Loans to the successor or replacement servicer; (B) prior to the effective date of such transfer of servicing, the Seller shall cause the prior Servicer to transmit to any related insurer notification of such transfer of servicing; (C) on or prior to the effective dat e of such transfer of servicing, the Seller shall cause the prior Servicer to deliver to the successor or replacement servicer all Mortgage Loan Documents and any related records or materials; (D) on or prior to the effective date of such transfer of servicing, the Seller shall cause the prior Servicer to transfer to the successor or replacement servicer, or, if such transfer occurs after a Servicer Remittance Date but before the next succeeding Master Servicer Remittance Date, to the Trustee, all funds held by the prior Servicer in respect of the Mortgage Loans; (E) on or prior to the effective date of such transfer of servicing, the Seller shall cause the prior Servicer to, after the effective date of the transfer of servicing to the successor or replacement servicer, continue to forward to such successor or replacement servicer, within one Business Day of receipt, the amount of any payments or other recoveries received by the prior Servicer, and to notify the successor or replacement servicer of the sourc e and proper application of each such payment or recovery; and (F) the Seller shall cause the prior Servicer to, after the effective date of transfer of servicing to the successor or replacement servicer, continue to cooperate with the successor or replacement servicer to facilitate such transfer in such manner and to such extent as the successor or replacement servicer may reasonably request.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the prior Servicer shall be obligated to perform the items listed above to the extent provided in the Servicing Agreement.
