Any of such funds remaining after such application shall be paid as soon as reasonably practicable by Assignee to such persons as Assignor may designate to Assignee in writing. 2.4 Assignee shall be accountable to Assignor only for monies actually received by Assignee pursuant to this Assignment and the acceptance of this Assignment shall not constitute a satisfaction of any indebtedness, liability or obligations, or any part thereof, now or hereafter owed by Assignor to Assignee, except to the extent of amounts actually received and applied by Assignee on account of the same. 2.5 The rights and powers of Assignee hereunder shall continue and remain in full force and effect until all amounts secured hereby, including any deficiency resulting from foreclosure sale, are paid in full, and shall continue after commencement of foreclosure and after foreclosure sale and until expiration of the equity of redemption, notwithstanding sale of the Property to a purchaser other than Assignee.

Covenants of Assignor. Assignor, for itself and for its successors and assigns, covenants and warrants as follows: 4 (a) that each of the Leases now or hereafter in effect is and shall be a valid and existing lease or sublease and that there are, to the extent ascertainable by Assignor, no defaults on the part of any of the parties thereto; (b) that Assignor has not sold, assigned, transferred, mortgaged or pledged any of the rents, issues or profits from the Property or any part thereof, whether now or hereafter to become due, to any person, firm or corporation other than Assignee; (c) that no rents, issues, deposits or profits of the Property, or any part thereof, becoming due subsequent to the date hereof have been collected nor has payment of any of the sums been anticipated, waived, released, discounted or otherwise discharged or compromised; (d) that Assignor will not assign, pledge or otherwise encumber any of the Leases or any of the rents thereunder unless the prior written consent of Assignee shall have been obtained thereto and unless the instrument creating such assignment, pledge or encumbrance shall expressly state that the same is subject to this Assignment; (e) that Assignor will not, without in each case having obtained the prior written consent of Assignee, which shall be withheld in Assignor's sole and absolute discretion, enter into any new lease agreement with respect to all or any portion of the Property or amend, modify, terminate or accept any surrender of any Lease; (f) that Assignor will not waive or give any consent with respect to any default or variation in the performance of any of the terms, covenants and conditions on the part of any lessee, sublessee, tenant or other occupant to be performed under any of the Leases without the written consent of Assignee, but will at all times take proper steps to enforce all of the provisions and conditions thereof; (g) that Assignor will not collect or receive, without in each case having obtained the prior written consent of Assignee thereto, from any such lessee, sublessee, tenant or other occupant, any installment of rent in advance of the respective dates prescribed in the Leases, except for Permitted Advance Rental Payments; (h) that Assignor will perform and observe, or cause to be performed and observed, all of the terms, covenants and conditions on its part to be performed and observed with respect to each of the Leases; (i) that Assignor will notify Assignee promptly when any Lease is hereafter executed, extended, renewed, amended or modified and that it will furnish to Assignee, on demand, true copies of all Leases hereafter executed and true copies of each agreement or letter effecting the renewal, amendment or modification of any Assigned Lease; and (j) any Leases hereafter executed shall provide that within thirty (30) days after written request from Assignee (i) the lessee shall agree to furnish to Assignee a financial statement on a form reasonably satisfactory to Assignee and such other documentation which would reflect the status of the Lease and/or the financial condition of such lessee and (ii) Assignor and such lessee shall agree to amend the Lease to make reasonable changes required by Assignee provided, however, such changes do not materially alter the terms and conditions of the Lease. 5 Assignor acknowledges and agrees that the approval (directly or indirectly) of any Lease by Assignee shall not be construed in any manner to create any liability or responsibility as to Assignee in the event that such Lease or the tenant thereunder should default. The review of any Lease by Assignee shall be solely for Assignee's own purposes, shall not constitute any representation by Assignee as to the subject Lease or as to the tenant thereunder and may not and shall not be relied upon by Assignor in any manner. Assignee shall independently review and approve any Lease and the tenant thereunder prior to execution thereof by Assignor. 5. Indemnification. 5.1 Assignor hereby agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Assignee harmless (except to the extent caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Assignee) (a) against and from any and all liability, loss, damage and expense, including reasonable attorneys' fees, which it may or shall incur under or in connection with any of the Leases, or by reason of any of the Obligations, or by reason of any action taken by Assignee under any of the Obligations (including, without limitation, any action which Assignee in its discretion may take to protect its interest in the Property, including, without limitation, the making of advances and the entering into of any action or proceeding arising out of or connected with the Leases or the Obligations), and (b) against and from any and all claims and demand whatsoever which may be asserted against Assignor by reason of any alleged obligations or undertakings on its part to perform or discharge any of the terms, covenants and conditions contained in any of the Leases. 5.2 Should Assignee incur any such liability, loss, damage or expense, the amount thereof, together with interest thereon at the highest rate permitted under Florida law, shall be payable by Assignor to Assignee immediately upon demand, or at the option of Assignee, Assignee may reimburse itself therefor out of any rents, issues or profits of the Property collected by Assignee. 5.3 Nothing contained herein shall operate or be construed to obligate Assignee to perform any of the terms, covenants or conditions contained in any Lease, or to take any measures, legal or otherwise, to enforce collection of any of said rents or other payments, or otherwise to impose any obligation upon Assignee with respect to any of said Leases, including but not limited to, any obligation arising out of any covenant of quiet enjoyment therein contained. 5.4 Prior to actual entry into any taking possession of the Property by Assignee, this Assignment shall not operate to place upon Assignee any responsibility for the operation, control, care, management or repair of the Property, and the execution of this Assignment by Assignor shall constitute conclusive evidence that all responsibility for the operation, control care, management and repair of the Property is and shall be that of Assignor prior to such actual entry and taking of possession. 6 6. Exercise of Remedies. Failure of Assignee to avail itself of any of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Assignment for any period of time, or at any time or times, shall not be construed or deemed to be a waiver of any of its rights hereunder. The rights and remedies of Assignee under this Assignment are cumulative and are not in lieu of but are in addition to any other rights and remedies which Assignee shall have under or by virtue of any other of the Obligations. The rights and remedies of Assignee hereunder may be exercised from time to time and as often as such exercise is deemed expedient. 7. Assignment by Assignee. Assignee shall have the right to assign to any subsequent holder of the Mortgage, or to any person acquiring title to the Property, Assignor's rights, title and interest in any Lease or sublease hereby or hereafter assigned, subject, however, to the provisions of this Assignment. After Assignor shall have been barred and foreclosed of all right, title and interest and equity of redemption in said Property, no assignee of Assignor's interest in said Leases shall be liable to account to Assignor for any rents, income, revenue, issues or profits thereafter accruing. 8. Termination of this Agreement. Upon payment in full of all the indebtedness secured by the Mortgage, as evidenced by a recorded satisfaction or release of Mortgage, as well as any sums which may be payable hereunder, this Assignment shall become and be void and of no further effect and, in that event, upon the request of Assignor, Assignee covenants to execute and deliver to Assignor instruments effective to evidence the termination of this Assignment and/or the reassignment to Assignor of the rights, power and authority granted herein. 9. No Merger of Assigned Leases. As against Assignee, at all times during which this Assignment shall be in effect, there shall be no merger of the Leases or the leasehold estate created thereby with the fee estate in the Property by reason of the fact that the Leases or any interest therein may be held by or for the account of any person, firm or corporation which may be or become the owner of said fee estate, unless Assignee shall consent in writing to said merger. 10. Notice. Any notice, demand, request or other communication given hereunder or in connection herewith (hereinafter "Notices") shall be deemed sufficient if in writing and sent by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, addressed to the party to receive such Notice at such address as each party has provided to the other in the Mortgage, or at such other address as such party may hereafter designate by Notice given in like fashion. Notice shall be deemed given when mailed.

Notwithstanding anything in this instrument to the contrary, all requirements of notice shall be deemed inapplicable if Assignee is prevented from giving such notice by bankruptcy or any other applicable law.
