ARTICLE II:
SALE AND CONVEYANCE OF MORTGAGE LOANS; POSSESSION OF MORTGAGE FILES; BOOKS AND RECORDS; DELIVERY OF MORTGAGE LOAN DOCUMENTS
 
Section 2.01  Sale and Conveyance of Mortgage Loans
 
Seller agrees to sell and Purchaser agrees to purchase, from time to time, those certain Mortgage Loans identified in a Mortgage Loan Schedule, at the price and on the terms set forth herein and in the related Purchase Price and Terms Letter. Purchaser, on any Funding Date, shall be obligated to purchase only such Mortgage Loans set forth in the applicable Mortgage Loan Schedule, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the related Purchase Price and Terms Letter.
 
Purchaser will purchase Mortgage Loan(s) from Seller, up to four (4) times per month on such Funding Dates as may be agreed upon by Purchaser and Seller. The closing shall, at Purchaser’s option be either: by telephone, confirmed by letter or wire as the parties shall agree; or conducted in person at such place as the parties shall agree. On the Funding Date and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Seller will sell, transfer, assign, set over and convey to the Purchaser, without recourse except as set forth in this Agreement, and the Purchaser will purchase, all of the right, title and interest of the applicable Seller in and to the Mortgage Loans being conveyed by it hereunder, as identified on the Mortgage Loan Schedule.
 
Examination of the Mortgage Files may be made by Purchaser or its designee as follows. No later than 5 Business Days prior to the Funding Date, Seller will deliver to Purchaser or its custodian, Legal Documents required pursuant to Schedule B-1. Upon Purchaser’s request, Seller shall make the Credit Documents available in either original paper form or electronic imaged format to Purchaser for review, at Seller’s place of business and during reasonable business hours. If Purchaser makes such examination prior to the Funding Date and identifies any Mortgage Loans that do not conform to the PHH Guide, such Mortgage Loans will be deleted from the Mortgage Loan Schedule at Purchaser’s discretion. Purchaser may, at its option and without notice to Seller, purchase all or part of the Mortgage Loans without conducting any partial or complete examination. The fact that Purchaser has conducted or has failed to conduct any partial or complete examination of the Mortgage Loan files shall not affect Purchaser’s rights to demand repurchase, substitution or other relief as provided herein.
 
On the Funding Date and in accordance with the terms herein, Purchaser will pay to Seller by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, the Purchase Price, together with interest, if any, accrued from the Cut-off Date through the day immediately preceding the Funding Date, according to the instructions to be provided, respectively, by PHH Mortgage and the Trust. Seller, simultaneously with the payment of the Purchase Price, shall execute and deliver to Purchaser a Warranty Bill of Sale with respect to the Mortgage Loans in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit 10.
 
Purchaser shall be entitled to all scheduled principal due after the Cut-off Date, all other recoveries of principal collected after the Cut-off Date and all payments of interest on the Mortgage Loans (minus that portion of any such payment which is allocable to the period prior to the Cut-off Date). Notwithstanding the foregoing, on the first Remittance Date after the Funding Date the Purchaser shall be entitled to receive the interest accrued from the Cut-off Date through the day immediately preceding the Funding Date. The principal balance of each Mortgage Loan as of the Cut-off Date is determined after application of payments of principal due on or before the Cut-off Date whether or not collected. Therefore, payments of scheduled principal and interest prepaid for a due date beyond the Cut-off Date shall not be applied to the principal balance as of the Cut-off Date. Such prepaid amounts shall be the property of Purchaser. Seller shall hold any such prepaid amounts for the benefit of Purchaser for subsequent remittance by Seller to Purchaser. All scheduled payments of principal due on or before the Cut-off Date and collected by Servicer after the Cut-off Date shall belong to Seller.
 
Section 2.02  Possession of Mortgage Files
 
Upon the sale of any Mortgage Loan, the ownership of such Mortgage Loan, including the Mortgage Note, the Mortgage, the contents of the related Mortgage File and all rights, benefits, payments, proceeds and obligations arising therefrom or in connection therewith, shall then be vested in the Purchaser, and the ownership of all records and documents with respect to such Mortgage Loan prepared by or which come into the possession of the Seller shall immediately vest in the Purchaser and, to the extent retained by the Seller, shall be retained and maintained, in trust, by the Seller at the will of the Purchaser in a custodial capacity only. The contents of such Mortgage File not delivered to the Purchaser are and shall be held in trust by the Seller for the benefit of the Purchaser as the owner thereof and the Sellers’ possession of the contents of each Mortgage File so retained is at the will of the Purchaser for the sole purpose of servicing the related Mortgage Loan, and such retention and possession by the Seller is in a custodial capacity only. Mortgage Files shall be maintained by the Seller and shall be marked to clearly reflect the sale of the related Mortgage Loan to the Purchaser. Each Seller shall release from its custody of the contents of any Mortgage File only in accordance with written instructions from the Purchaser, except where such release is required as incidental to the Servicer’s servicing of the Mortgage Loans or is in connection with a repurchase or substitution of any such Mortgage Loan pursuant to Section 3.04.
 
Any documents released to a Seller or the Servicer in connection with the foreclosure or servicing of any Mortgage Loan shall be held by such Person in trust for the benefit of the Purchaser in accordance with this Section 2.02. Such Person shall return to the Purchaser such documents when such Person’s need therefor in connection with such foreclosure or servicing no longer exists (unless sooner requested by the Purchaser); provided that, if such Mortgage Loan is liquidated, then, upon the delivery by a Seller or the Servicer to the Purchaser of a request for the release of such documents and a certificate certifying as to such liquidation, the Purchaser shall promptly release and, to the extent necessary, deliver to such Person such documents.
 
Section 2.03  Books and Records
 
The sale of each of its Mortgage Loans shall be reflected on the applicable Seller’s balance sheet and other financial statements as a sale of assets by the applicable Seller. Each Seller shall be responsible for maintaining, and shall maintain, a complete set of books and records for the Mortgage Loans it conveyed to the Purchaser which shall be clearly marked to reflect the sale of each Mortgage Loan to the Purchaser and the ownership of each Mortgage Loan by the Purchaser. The consideration received by the applicable Seller upon the sale of the Mortgage Loans shall constitute fair consideration and reasonably equivalent value for such Mortgage Loans. Each Seller is solvent and will not be rendered insolvent by the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated hereby. Neither Seller is transferring any Mortgage Loan with any intent to hinder, delay or defraud any of its creditors.
 
Section 2.04  Defective Documents; Delivery of Mortgage Loan Documents
 
If, subsequent to the related Funding Date, the Purchaser or either Seller finds any document or documents constituting a part of a Mortgage File to be defective or missing in any material respect (in this Section 2.04, a “Defect”), the party discovering such Defect shall promptly so notify the other parties. If the Defect pertains to the Mortgage Note or the Mortgage, then the applicable Seller shall have a period of 60 days within which to correct or cure any such defect after the earlier of such Seller’s discovery of same or such Seller being notified of same. If such Defect can ultimately be cured but is not reasonably expected to be cured within such 60 day period, such Seller shall have such additional time as is reasonably determined by the Purchaser to cure or correct such Defect provided that such Seller has commenced curing or correcting such Defect and is diligently pursuing same. If the Defect pertains to any other document constituting a part of a Mortgage File, then such Seller shall have a period of 60 days within which to correct or cure any such Defect after the earlier of such Seller’s discovery of same or such Seller being notified of same. If such Defect can ultimately be cured but is not reasonably expected to be cured within the 60 day period, then such Seller shall have such additional time as is reasonably determined by the Purchaser to cure or correct such Defect provided such Seller has commenced curing or correcting such Defect and is diligently pursuing same. PHH Mortgage hereby covenants and agrees that, if any material defect cannot be corrected or cured, the related Mortgage Loan shall automatically constitute, upon the expiration of the applicable cure period described above and without any further action by any other party, a Defective Mortgage Loan, whereupon PHH Mortgage shall repurchase such Mortgage Loan by paying to the Purchaser the Repurchase Price therefor in accordance with Section 3.04.
 
The applicable Seller will, with respect to each Mortgage Loan to be purchased by the Purchaser, deliver and release to the Purchaser the Legal Documents as set forth in Section 2.01. If the applicable Seller cannot deliver an original Mortgage with evidence of recording thereon, original assumption, modification and substitution agreements with evidence of recording thereon or an original intervening assignment with evidence of recording thereon within the applicable time periods, then such Seller shall promptly deliver to the Purchaser such original Mortgages and original intervening assignments with evidence of recording indicated thereon upon receipt thereof from the public recording official, except in cases where the original Mortgage or original intervening assignments are retained permanently by the recording office, in which case, such Seller shall deliver a copy of such Mortgage or intervening assignment, as the case may be, certified to be a true and complete copy of the recorded original thereof. If the applicable Seller cannot deliver the original security instrument or if an original intervening assignment has been lost, then the applicable Seller will deliver a copy of such security instrument or intervening assignment, certified by the local public recording official. If the original title policy has been lost, the applicable Seller will deliver a duplicate original title policy.
 
If the original Mortgage was not delivered pursuant to the preceding paragraph, then the applicable Seller shall use its best efforts to promptly secure the delivery of such originals and shall cause such originals to be delivered to the Purchaser promptly upon receipt thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the original Mortgage, original assumption, modification, and substitution agreements, the original of any intervening assignment or the original policy of title insurance is not so delivered to the Purchaser within 180 days following the Funding Date, then, upon written notice by the Purchaser to PHH Mortgage, the Purchaser may, in its sole discretion, then elect (by providing written notice to PHH Mortgage) to treat such Mortgage Loan as a Defective Mortgage Loan, whereupon PHH Mortgage shall repurchase such Mortgage Loan by paying to the Purchaser the Repurchase Price therefor in accordance with Section 3.04. It is understood that from time to time certain local recorder offices become backlogged with document volume. It is agreed that the Seller will provide an Officer’s Certificate to document that the Seller has performed all necessary tasks to insure delivery of the required documentation within 180 days and the delay beyond 180 is caused by the backlog. If the delay exceeds 360 days, regardless of the backlog the Purchaser may elect to collect the documents with its own resources with the reasonable cost and expense to be borne by the Seller. The fact that the Purchaser has conducted or failed to conduct any partial or complete examination of the Mortgage Files shall not affect its right to demand repurchase or any other remedies provided in this Agreement.
 
At the Purchaser’s request, the Assignments shall be promptly recorded in the name of the Purchaser or in the name of a Person designated by the Purchaser in all appropriate public offices for real property records. If any such Assignment is lost or returned unrecorded because of a defect therein, then the applicable Seller shall promptly prepare a substitute Assignment to cure such defect and thereafter cause each such Assignment to be duly recorded. All recording fees related to such a one-time recordation of the Assignments to or by a Seller shall be paid by the applicable Seller.
 
Section 2.05  Transfer of Mortgage Loans
 
Subject to the provisions of this Section 2.05, the Purchaser shall have the right, without the consent of the Sellers, at any time and from time to time, to assign any of the Mortgage Loans and all or any part of its interest under this Agreement and designate any person to exercise any rights of the Purchaser hereunder, and the assignees or designees shall accede to the rights and obligations hereunder of the Purchaser with respect to such Mortgage Loans. The Sellers recognize that the Mortgage Loans may be divided into “packages” for resale (“Mortgage Loan Packages”).
 
All of the provisions of this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of the Purchaser and any such assignees or designees. All references to the Purchaser shall be deemed to include its assignees or designees. Utilizing resources reasonably available to the Seller without incurring any cost except the Seller’s overhead and employees’ salaries, the applicable Seller shall cooperate in any such assignment of the Mortgage Loans and this Agreement; provided that the Purchaser shall bear all costs associated with any such assignment of the Mortgage Loans and this Agreement other than such Seller’s overhead or employees’ salaries.
 
The Servicer and Purchaser agree that in no event will the Servicer be required to remit funds or make available via Servicer’s website remittance reports to more than four (4) Persons (not including the Servicer or any Affiliate or transferee thereof) at any given time with respect to any Mortgage Loans sold on a particular Funding Date, unless otherwise set forth in the related Purchase Price and Terms Letter.
 
The Servicer and the Purchaser acknowledge that the Servicer shall continue to remit payments to the Purchaser on the Remittance Date after the transfer of the Mortgage Loans, unless the Servicer was notified in writing of the new record owner of the Mortgage Loans 3 Business Days prior to the Record Date, in which case, the Servicer shall remit to the new record owner (or trustee or master servicer, as the case may be) of the Mortgage Loans.
 
Any prospective assignees of the Purchaser who have entered into a commitment to purchase any of the Mortgage Loans may review and underwrite the Servicer’s servicing and origination operations, upon reasonable prior notice to the Servicer, and the Servicer shall cooperate with such review and underwriting to the extent such prospective assignees request information or documents that are reasonably available and can be produced without unreasonable expense or effort. The Servicer shall make the Mortgage Files related to the Mortgage Loans held by the Servicer available at the Servicer’s principal operations center for review by any such prospective assignees during normal business hours upon reasonable prior notice to the Servicer (in no event less than 15 Business Days prior notice). The Servicer may, in its sole discretion, require that such prospective assignees sign a confidentiality agreement with respect to such information disclosed to the prospective assignee which is not available to the public at large and a release agreement with respect to its activities on the Servicer’s premises.
 
The Servicer shall keep at its servicing office books and records in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Servicer shall note transfers of Mortgage Loans. The Purchaser may, subject to the terms of this Agreement, sell and transfer, in whole or in part, any or all of the Mortgage Loans; provided that no such sale and transfer shall be binding upon the Servicer unless such transferee shall agree in writing to an Assignment, Assumption and Recognition Agreement, in substantially the form of Exhibit 2.05 attached hereto, and an executed copy of such Assignment, Assumption and Recognition Agreement shall have been delivered to the Servicer. The Servicer shall evidence its acknowledgment of any transfers of the Mortgage Loans to any assignees of the Purchaser by executing such Assignment, Assumption and Recognition Agreement. The Servicer shall mark its books and records to reflect the ownership of the Mortgage Loans by any such assignees, and the previous Purchaser shall be released from its obligations hereunder accruing after the date of transfer to the extent such obligations relate to Mortgage Loans sold by the Purchaser. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Purchaser and the Servicer and their permitted successors, assignees and designees.

Each imaged document is clear and legible, including, but not limited to, accurate reproductions of photographs. No original documents have been or will be altered in any manner;
 
(52)  No predatory or deceptive lending practices, including but not limited to, the extension of credit to a mortgagor without regard for the mortgagor’s ability to repay the Mortgage Loan and the extension of credit to a mortgagor which has no apparent benefit to the mortgagor, were employed in connection with the origination of the Mortgage Loan. Each Mortgage Loan is in compliance with the anti-predatory lending eligibility for purchase requirements of the Fannie Mae Guides;
 
(53)  No Mortgagor was required to purchase any credit life, disability, accident or health insurance product as a condition of obtaining the extension of credit. No Mortgagor obtained a prepaid single premium credit life, disability, accident or health insurance policy in connection with the origination of the Mortgage Loan. No proceeds from any Mortgage Loan were used to purchase single premium credit insurance policies as part of the origination of, or as a condition to closing, such Mortgage Loan;
 
(54)  None of the Mortgage Loans are subject to a prepayment penalty.
 
(55)  The Seller has complied with all applicable anti-money laundering laws and regulations, including without limitation the USA Patriot Act of 2001 (collectively, the “Anti-Money Laundering Laws”); the Seller has established an anti-money laundering compliance program as required by the Anti-Money Laundering Laws, has conducted the requisite due diligence in connection with the origination of each Mortgage Loan for purposes of the Anti-Money Laundering Laws, including with respect to the identity of the applicable Mortgagor and, other than with respect to any Mortgage Loan originated pursuant to a “specialty/Alt-A” program, the origin of the assets used by the said Mortgagor to purchase the property in question, and maintains, and will maintain, sufficient information to identify the applicable Mortgagor for purposes of the Anti-Money Laundering Laws.

(56)  No Mortgagor was encouraged or required to select a Mortgage Loan product offered by the Mortgage Loan’s originator which is a higher cost product designed for less creditworthy borrowers, unless at the time of the Mortgage Loan’s origination, such Mortgagor did not qualify taking into account credit history and debt to income ratios for a lower cost credit product then offered by the Mortgage Loan’s originator or any affiliate of the Mortgage Loan’s originator. If, at the time of loan application, the Mortgagor may have qualified for a for a lower cost credit product then offered by any mortgage lending affiliate of the Mortgage Loan’s originator, the Mortgage Loan’s originator referred the Mortgagor’s application to such affiliate for underwriting consideration;
 
(57)  The methodology used in underwriting the extension of credit for each Mortgage Loan employs objective mathematical principles which relate the Mortgagor’s income, assets and liabilities to the proposed payment and such underwriting methodology does not rely on the extent of the Mortgagor’s equity in the collateral as the principal determining factor in approving such credit extension. Such underwriting methodology confirmed that at the time of origination (application/approval) the Mortgagor had a reasonable ability to make timely payments on the Mortgage Loan;
 
(58)  All points and fees related to each Mortgage Loan were disclosed in writing to the related Borrower in accordance with applicable state and federal law and regulation.

All fees and charges (including finance charges) and whether or not financed, assessed, collected or to be collected in connection with the origination and servicing of each such Mortgage Loan were disclosed in writing to the related Mortgagor in accordance with applicable state and federal laws and regulations;

(61)  With respect to any Mortgage Loan for which a mortgage loan application was submitted by the Mortgagor after April 1, 2004, no such Mortgage Loan secured by Mortgaged Property in the State of Illinois which has a mortgage rate in excess of 8.0% per annum has lender-imposed fees (or other charges) in excess of 3.0% of the original principal balance of the Mortgage Loan;

Upon discovery by either of the Sellers or the Purchaser of a breach of any of the representations and warranties contained in Sections 3.01, 3.02 or 3.03 that materially and adversely affects the interest of the Purchaser (or that materially and adversely affects the interests of the Purchaser in the related Mortgage Loan, in the case of a representation or warranty relating to a particular Mortgage Loan), the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice to the other.
 
Unless permitted a greater period of time to cure as set forth in Section 2.04, the applicable Seller shall have a period of 60 days from the earlier of either discovery by or receipt of written notice from the Purchaser to the Seller of any breach of any of the representations and warranties contained in Sections 3.01, 3.02 or 3.03 that materially and adversely affects the interest of the Purchaser (or that materially and adversely affects the interests of the Purchaser in the related Mortgage Loan, in the case of a representation or warranty relating to a particular Mortgage Loan) (a “Defective Mortgage Loan”; provided that “Defective Mortgage Loan” shall also include (a) any Mortgage Loan treated or designated as such in accordance with Section 2.04 and (b) in the event that (i) the first due date for a Mortgage Loan is subsequent to the Cut-off Date and the initial monthly payment is not made by the last day of the month in which such payment was due, or (ii) the first monthly payment due following the Cut-off Date on any Mortgage Loan is not made by the last day of the month in which such payment was due will be repurchased by the applicable Seller at the Repurchase Price. If such breach can ultimately be cured but is not reasonably expected to be cured within the 60-day period, then, at the option of the Purchaser, the applicable Seller shall have such additional time, if any, as is reasonably determined by the Purchaser to cure such breach provided that the Seller has commenced curing or correcting such breach and is diligently pursuing same. Each Seller hereby covenants and agrees with respect to each Mortgage Loan conveyed by it that, if any breach relating thereto cannot be corrected or cured within the applicable cure period or such additional time, if any, as is reasonably determined by the Purchaser, then such Seller shall, at the direction of the Purchaser, repurchase the Defective Mortgage Loan at the applicable Repurchase Price. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if the first regularly scheduled payment of principal and interest due to the Purchaser under any Mortgage Loan has been delinquent more than 30 days, the Purchaser may, by written notice to the applicable Seller, require that the Seller repurchase the related Mortgage Loan at the Repurchase Price. However, if the Seller provides evidence that the delinquency was due to a servicing setup error, no repurchase shall be required. Within 10 Business Days following the delivery of any such written notice from the Purchaser, the applicable Seller shall repurchase the specified Mortgage Loan by paying the Repurchase Price therefor by wire transfer of immediately available funds directly to the Purchaser’s Account.
 
Notwithstanding the previous paragraph, the applicable Seller may, at its option and assuming that such Seller has a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, rather than repurchase the Mortgage Loan as provided above, remove such Mortgage Loan (“Deleted Mortgage Loan”) and substitute in its place a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans. If the applicable Seller has no Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan, it shall repurchase the Defective Mortgage Loan.
 
As to any Deleted Mortgage Loan for which the applicable Seller substitutes a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, the applicable Seller shall effect such substitution by delivering to the Purchaser or its designee for such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans the Legal Documents as are required by Section 2. Upon such substitution, such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans shall be subject to the terms of this Agreement in all respects, and the applicable Seller shall be deemed to have made with respect to such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, as of the date of substitution, the covenants, representations and warranties set forth in Sections 3.01, 3.02 and 3.03.
 
For any month in which the applicable Seller substitutes one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for one or more Deleted Mortgage Loans, the applicable Seller will determine the amount (if any) by which the aggregate principal balance of all such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans as of the date of substitution (after application of scheduled principal payments due in the month of substitution which have been received or as to which an advance has been made) is less than the aggregate outstanding principal balance of all such Deleted Mortgage Loans. The amount of such shortfall shall be paid by the applicable Seller on the date of such substitution) by wire transfer of immediately available funds directly to the Purchaser’s Account.
 
Any repurchase of a Defective Mortgage Loan required hereunder shall be accomplished by payment of the applicable Repurchase Price within 3 Business Days of expiration of the applicable time period referred to above in paragraph 3.04 by wire transfer of immediately available funds directly to the Purchaser’s Account. It is understood and agreed that the obligations of a Seller (a) set forth in this Section 3.04 to cure any breach of such Seller’s representations and warranties contained in Sections 3.01, 3.02 and 3.03 or to repurchase the Defective Mortgage Loan(s) and (b) set forth in Section 9.01 to indemnify the Purchaser in connection with any breach of a Seller’s representations and warranties contained in Sections 3.01, 3.02 and 3.03 shall constitute the sole remedies of the Purchaser respecting a breach of such representations and warranties.
 
If set forth in the related Purchase Price and Terms Letter, in the event that the principal balance due on a Mortgage Loan is paid in full within six months following the related Funding Date, the Seller shall reimburse Purchaser the amount (if any) by which the Purchase Price paid by Purchaser to Seller exceeded 100% of the Unpaid Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loan as of the date of such prepayment in full, within ten days of such payoff.
 
In the event of a repurchase or substitution, the Seller shall, simultaneously with such repurchase or substitution, give written notice (by telecopier, electronically or otherwise) to the Purchaser that such repurchase or substitution has taken place, amend the related Mortgage Loan Schedule to reflect the withdrawal of the Deleted Mortgage Loan from this Agreement, and in the case of substitution, identify the Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan(s) and amend the related Mortgage Loan Schedule to reflect the addition of such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan(s) this Agreement.
 
The parties further agree that, in recognition of the Trust’s rights against PHH Mortgage with respect to the Mortgage Loans acquired by it from PHH Mortgage and conveyed to the Purchaser hereunder, the Purchaser shall have the right to cause PHH Mortgage to repurchase directly any Defective Mortgage Loan (other than as a result of a breach by the Trust of Section 3.03 (3) or 3.03(16) hereof, in which case the Purchaser shall have the right to cause the Trust to repurchase directly the Defective Mortgage Loan) acquired hereunder by the Purchaser from the Trust.
 
Section 3.05  Certain Covenants of each Seller and the Servicer.
 
Without incurring undue effort or any cost except the Seller’s overhead or employees ’ salaries, each Seller shall take reasonable steps to assist the Purchaser, if the Purchaser so requests by 10 days’ advance written notice to the related Seller or Sellers (provided that in the event Purchaser provides less than 10 days’ advance written notice, the related Seller or Sellers will use their best commercially reasonable efforts to assist the Purchaser), in re-selling the Mortgage Loans in a whole loan sale or in securitizing the Mortgage Loans and selling undivided interests in such Mortgage Loans in a public offering or private placement or selling participating interests in such Mortgage Loans, which steps may include, (a) providing any information relating to the Mortgage Loans reasonably necessary to assist in the preparation of any disclosure documents, (b) providing information relating to delinquencies and defaults with respect to the Servicer’s servicing portfolio (or such portion thereof as is similar to the Mortgage Loans), (c) entering into any other servicing, custodial or other similar agreements, that are consistent with the provisions of this Agreement, and which contain such provisions as are customary in securitizations rated “AAA” (including a securitization involving a REMIC) (a “Securitization”), (d) to restate the representations and warranties contained in Article III hereof as of the closing date of such Securitization or whole loan sale; provided, however, Servicer may qualify and/or modify any such representations or warranties to reflect any facts or circumstances arising subsequent to the related Funding Date, (e) provide such opinions of counsel as are customary in such transactions, provided, however, that any opinion of outside counsel shall be provided at Purchaser’s expense, (f) provide Sarbanes-Oxley certification in the form of Exhibit 11 and (g) to indemnify the Purchaser and its affiliates for material misstatements or omissions contained (i) in such information provided by the Seller and (ii) on the Mortgage Loan Schedule (provided that Purchaser shall indemnify Seller for material misstatements or omissions contained in any offering document in connection with a Securitization (other than the information provided by the Seller)). In connection with such a Securitization, the Purchaser may be required to engage a master servicer or trustee to determine the allocation of payments to and make remittances to the certificateholders, at the Purchaser’s sole cost and expense. In the event that a master servicer or trustee is requested by the Purchaser to determine the allocation of payments and to make remittances to the certificateholders, the Servicer agrees to service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the reasonable and customary requirements of such Securitization, which may include the Servicer’s acting as a subservicer in a master servicing arrangement. With respect to the then owners of the Mortgage Loans, the Servicer shall thereafter deal solely with such master servicer or trustee, as the case may be with respect to such Mortgage Loans which are subject to the Securitization and shall not be required to deal with any other party with respect to such Mortgage Loans. The cost of such securitization shall be borne by the Purchaser, other than the Seller’s overhead or employees’ salaries.
 
With respect to each whole loan transfer and pass-through transfer, the Seller shall establish and maintain one or more Collection Accounts and Escrow Accounts with respect to the Mortgage Loans sold pursuant to such whole loan transfer or pass-through transfer, which accounts shall be established and maintained in addition to, and separate and apart from, any other Collection Account or Collection Accounts and Escrow Account or Escrow Accounts established and maintained pursuant to this Agreement. The sale or transfer of the Mortgage Loans pursuant to a whole loan transfer or pass-through transfer shall be deemed to create a separate and distinct servicing agreement by the Seller with respect to such Mortgage Loan or Loans. In connection therewith, the obligation of the Seller in respect of compensating interest payments for Prepayment Interest Shortfall Amounts with respect to the Mortgage Loans sold pursuant to a whole loan transfer or pass-through transfer, or sold pursuant to one whole loan transfer or pass-through transfer and separated by loan group (each, a “Loan Group”), shall accrue with respect to the related Mortgage Loans or Loan Group, and shall not be made on an aggregate basis with all of the Mortgage Loans purchased pursuant to or in connection with this Agreement or with the Mortgage Loans of a different Loan Group.

The sale or transfer of the Mortgage Loans pursuant to a whole loan transfer or pass-through transfer shall be deemed to create a separate and distinct servicing agreement by the Seller with respect to such Mortgage Loan or Loans.

Furthermore, the Servicer shall ascertain and estimate annual ground rents, taxes, assessments, fire and hazard insurance premiums, mortgage insurance premiums, and all other charges that, as provided in the Mortgages, will become due and payable to the end that the installments payable by the Mortgagors will be sufficient to pay such charges as and when they become due and payable.

The Servicer may, from time to time in accordance with the provisions hereof, withdraw amounts from the Collection Account for the following purposes (without duplication):
 
(1)  to reimburse itself for unreimbursed Monthly Advances and Servicing Advances that the Servicer has determined to be Non-Recoverable Advances as provided in Section 6.04;

(5)  to pay to itself as additional servicing compensation any interest earned on funds in the Collection Account (all such interest to be withdrawn monthly not later than each Remittance Date), any Foreclosure Profits and any prepayment penalties or premiums relating to any Principal Prepayments; provided that no such amounts shall be payable as servicing compensation to the extent they relate to a Mortgage Loan with respect to which a default, breach, violation, or event of acceleration exists or would exist but for the lapse of time, the giving of notice, or both;
 
(6)  to pay to itself with respect to each Mortgage Loan that has been repurchased pursuant to Sections 2.04, 3.04 and/or 7.02 all amounts received thereon and not distributed as of the date on which the related Repurchase Price is determined (except to the extent that such amounts constitute part of the Repurchase Price to be remitted to the Purchaser);

(8)  to clear and terminate the Collection Account in the event a new Collection Account has been established, or upon the termination of this Agreement, with any funds contained therein to be distributed in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
 
The Servicer shall keep and maintain a separate, detailed accounting, on a Mortgage Loan-by-Mortgage Loan basis, for the purpose of justifying any withdrawal from the Collection Account pursuant to this Section.
 
Section 5.06  Establishment of Escrow Accounts; Deposits in Escrow
 
The Servicer shall segregate and hold all funds collected and received pursuant to each Mortgage Loan which constitute Escrow Payments separate and apart from any of its own funds and general assets and shall establish and maintain one or more Escrow Accounts which shall be an Eligible Account. The creation of any Escrow Account shall be evidenced by a letter agreement in the form shown on Exhibit 5.06 attached hereto. A copy of such letter agreement shall be furnished to the Purchaser.
 
The Servicer shall deposit in each Escrow Account within two Business Days after receipt, and retain therein, (i) all Escrow Payments collected on account of the related Mortgage Loans for the purpose of effecting timely payment of any such items as required under the terms of this Agreement, and (ii) all Insurance Proceeds which are to be applied to the restoration or repair of any Mortgaged Property. The Servicer shall make withdrawals therefrom only to effect such payments as are required under Sections 5.07 and/or 5.08. The Servicer shall be entitled to retain any interest paid on funds deposited in the Escrow Account by the depository institution other than interest on escrowed funds required by law to be paid to the Mortgagor and, to the extent required by law, the Servicer shall pay interest on escrowed funds to the Mortgagor notwithstanding that the Escrow Account is non-interest bearing or that interest paid thereon is insufficient for such purposes, without any right of reimbursement therefor.
 
Section 5.07  Permitted Withdrawals From Escrow Accounts
 
Withdrawals from any Escrow Account may be made by the Servicer only (i) to effect timely payments of ground rents, taxes, assessments, hazard insurance premiums, Primary Insurance Policy premiums, if applicable, and comparable items constituting Escrow Payments for the related Mortgage, (ii) to reimburse the Servicer for any Servicing Advance made by the Servicer with respect to a related Mortgage Loan but only from amounts received on the related Mortgage Loan that represent late payments or collections of Escrow Payments thereunder, (iii) to refund to the Mortgagor any funds as may be determined to be overages, (iv) if permitted by applicable law, for transfer to the Collection Account in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, (v) for application to the restoration or repair of the Mortgaged Property in accordance with the terms of the related Mortgage Loan, (vi) to pay to the Servicer, or to the Mortgagor to the extent required by law, any interest paid on the funds deposited in the Escrow Account, (vii) to reimburse a Mortgagor in connection with the making of the Payoff of the related Mortgage Loan or the termination of all or part of the escrow requirement in connection with the Mortgage Loan, (viii) to remove any amounts deposited into the Escrow Account in error; or (ix) to clear and terminate the Escrow Account in the event a new Escrow Account has been established or upon the termination of this Agreement.
 
Section 5.08  Payment of Taxes, Insurance and Other Charges; Maintenance of Primary Insurance Policies; Collections Thereunder
 
With respect to each Mortgage Loan, the Servicer shall maintain accurate records reflecting the status of ground rents, taxes, assessments, and other charges which are or may become a lien upon the Mortgaged Property and the status of Primary Insurance Policy premiums and fire and hazard insurance coverage and shall obtain, from time to time, all bills for the payment of such charges, including renewal premiums, and shall effect payment thereof prior to the applicable penalty or termination date and at a time appropriate for securing maximum discounts allowable, employing for such purpose deposits of the Mortgagor in the Escrow Account which shall have been estimated and accumulated by the Servicer in amounts sufficient for such purposes, as allowed under the terms of the Mortgage and applicable law. If a Mortgage does not provide for Escrow Payments, then the Servicer shall require that any such payments be made by the Mortgagor at the time they first become due. The Servicer assumes full responsibility for the timely payment of all such bills and shall effect timely payments of all such bills irrespective of the Mortgagor’s faithful performance in the payment of same or the making of the Escrow Payments and shall make advances from its own funds to effect such payments but shall be entitled to reimbursement thereof in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
 
The Servicer shall maintain in full force and effect a Primary Insurance Policy, conforming in all respects to the description set forth in Section 3.03(30), issued by an insurer described in that Section, with respect to each Mortgage Loan for which such coverage is required. Such coverage will be maintained until the Loan-to-Value Ratio of the related Mortgage Loan is reduced to 75% or less in the case of a Mortgage Loan having a Loan-to-Value Ratio at origination in excess of 80% or until such time, if any, as such insurance is required to be released in accordance with the provisions of applicable law including, but not limited to, the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998. The Servicer shall assure that all premiums due under any Primary Insurance Policy are paid in a timely manner, but, shall be entitled to reimbursement pursuant to the terms of this Agreement for premiums paid by the Servicer on behalf of any Mortgagor who is obligated to pay such premiums but fails to do so. The Servicer shall not cancel or refuse to renew any Primary Insurance Policy in effect on the Funding Date that is required to be kept in force under this Agreement unless a replacement Primary Insurance Policy for such canceled or nonrenewed policy is obtained from and maintained with an insurer that satisfies the standards set forth in Section 3.03(30). The Servicer shall not take any action which would result in noncoverage under any applicable Primary Insurance Policy of any loss which, but for the actions of the Servicer, would have been covered thereunder. In connection with any assumption or substitution agreement entered into or to be entered into pursuant to Section 7.01, the Servicer shall promptly notify the insurer under the related Primary Insurance Policy, if any, of such assumption or substitution of liability in accordance with the terms of such policy and shall take all actions which may be required by such insurer as a condition to the continuation of coverage under the Primary Insurance Policy. If such Primary Insurance Policy is terminated as a result of such assumption or substitution of liability, then the Servicer shall obtain, and, except as otherwise provided above, maintain, a replacement Primary Insurance Policy as provided above.
 
In connection with its activities as servicer, the Servicer agrees to prepare and present, on behalf of itself and the Purchaser, claims to the insurer under any Primary Insurance Policy in a timely fashion in accordance with the terms of such policies and, in this regard, to take such action as shall be necessary to permit recovery under any Primary Insurance Policy respecting a defaulted Mortgage Loan. Pursuant to Section 5.04, any amounts collected by the Servicer under any Primary Insurance Policy shall be deposited in the Collection Account, subject to withdrawal in accordance with Section 5.05.
 
Section 5.09  Transfer of Accounts
 
The Servicer may transfer the Collection Account or any Escrow Account to a different depository institution from time to time; provided that (i) no such transfer shall be made unless all certifications or letter agreements required under Section 5.04 have been executed and delivered by the parties thereto; and (ii) concurrently upon any such transfer, the Servicer shall give written notice thereof to the Purchaser. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Collection Account and each Escrow Account shall at all times constitute Eligible Accounts.
 
Section 5.10  Maintenance of Hazard Insurance
 
The Servicer shall cause to be maintained for each Mortgage Loan fire and hazard insurance with extended coverage as is customary in the area where the Mortgaged Property is located in an amount that is at least equal to the lesser of (a) the maximum insurable value of the improvements securing such Mortgage Loan and (b) the greater of (1) the Unpaid Principal Balance of such Mortgage Loan or (2) an amount such that the proceeds thereof shall be sufficient to prevent the Mortgagor and/or the loss payee from becoming a co-insurer.
 
If any Mortgaged Property is in an area identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as having special flood hazards and such flood insurance has been made available, then the Servicer will cause to be maintained a flood insurance policy meeting the requirements of the current guidelines of the Federal Insurance Administration with a generally acceptable insurance carrier, in an amount representing coverage not less than the lesser of (a) the minimum amount required, under the terms of coverage, to compensate for any damage or loss on a replacement cost basis (or the outstanding principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan if replacement cost coverage is not available for the type of building insured) or (b) the maximum amount of insurance which is available under the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended (assuming that the area in which such Mortgaged Property is located is participating in such program).
 
The Servicer shall also maintain on each REO Property fire, hazard and liability insurance, and to the extent required and available under the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended, flood insurance with extended coverage in an amount which is at least equal to the lesser of (a) the maximum insurable value of the improvements which are a part of such property and (b) the outstanding principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan at the time it became an REO Property plus accrued interest at the Note Rate and related Servicing Advances.
 
All such policies shall be endorsed with standard mortgagee clauses with loss payable to the Servicer, or upon request to the Purchaser, and shall provide for at least 30 days prior written notice of any cancellation, reduction in the amount of, or material change in, coverage to the Servicer. The Servicer shall not interfere with the Mortgagor’s freedom of choice in selecting either his insurance carrier or agent, provided that the Servicer shall not accept any such insurance policies from insurance companies unless such companies (a) currently reflect (1) a general policyholder’s rating of B+ or better and a financial size category of III or better in Best’s Key Rating Guide, or (2) a general policyholder’s rating of “A” or “A-“ or better in Best’s Key Rating Guide, and (b) are licensed to do business in the state wherein the related Mortgaged Property is located. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer may accept a policy underwritten by Lloyd’s of London or, if it is the only coverage available, coverage under a state’s Fair Access to Insurance Requirement (FAIR) Plan. If a hazard policy becomes in danger of being terminated, or the insurer ceases to have the ratings noted above, the Servicer shall notify the related Mortgagor, and shall use its best efforts, as permitted by applicable law, to obtain from another qualified insurer a replacement hazard insurance policy substantially and materially similar in all respects to the original policy. In no event, however, shall a Mortgage Loan be without a hazard insurance policy at any time.
 
Pursuant to Section 5.04, any amounts collected by the Servicer under any such policies other than amounts to be deposited in the Escrow Account and applied to the restoration or repair of the Mortgaged Property or REO Property, or released to the Mortgagor in accordance with the Servicer’s normal servicing procedures, shall be deposited in the Collection Account within two Business Days after receipt, subject to withdrawal in accordance with Section 5.05. Any cost incurred by the Servicer in maintaining any such insurance shall not, for the purpose of calculating remittances to the Purchaser, be added to the Unpaid Principal Balance of the related Mortgage Loan, notwithstanding that the terms of such Mortgage Loan so permit.
 
It is understood and agreed that no earthquake or other additional insurance need be required by the Servicer of the Mortgagor or maintained on property acquired in respect of the Mortgage Loan, other than pursuant to such applicable laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force and as shall require such additional insurance.
 
Section 5.11  Reserved
 
Section 5.12  Fidelity Bond; Errors and Omissions Insurance
 
The Servicer shall maintain, at its own expense, a blanket fidelity bond and an errors and omissions insurance policy, with broad coverage with responsible companies that would meet the requirements of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac on all officers, employees or other Persons acting in any capacity with regard to the Mortgage Loans to handle funds, money, documents and papers relating to the Mortgage Loans. The Fidelity Bond and errors and omissions insurance shall be in the form of the “Mortgage Banker’s Blanket Bond” and shall protect and insure the Servicer against losses, including losses arising by virtue of any Mortgage Loan not being satisfied in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 7.02 and/or losses resulting from or arising in connection with forgery, theft, embezzlement, fraud, errors and omissions and negligent acts of or by such Persons. Such Fidelity Bond shall also protect and insure the Servicer against losses in connection with the failure to maintain any insurance policies required pursuant to this Agreement and the release or satisfaction of a Mortgage Loan without having obtained payment in full of the indebtedness secured thereby. No provision of this Section 5.12 requiring the Fidelity Bond and errors and omissions insurance shall diminish or relieve the Servicer from its duties and obligations as set forth in this Agreement. The minimum coverage under any such bond and insurance policy shall be at least equal to the corresponding amounts required by Fannie Mae in the Fannie Mae Guide or by Freddie Mac in the Freddie Mac Servicing Guide. The Servicer shall cause to be delivered to the Purchaser upon request: (i) a certified true copy of the Fidelity Bond and insurance policy; and (ii) a written statement from the surety and the insurer that such Fidelity Bond or insurance policy shall in no event be terminated or materially modified without 30 days’ prior written notice to the Purchaser.
 
Section 5.13  Management of REO Properties
 
If title to any Mortgaged Property is acquired in foreclosure or by deed in lieu of foreclosure (each, an “REO Property”), the deed or certificate of sale shall be taken in the name of the Purchaser or the Person designated by the Purchaser. The Servicer (acting alone or through a subservicer), on behalf of the Purchaser, shall, subject to Section 5.01(3)(c), dispose of any REO Property pursuant to Section 5.14. Promptly following any acquisition by the Purchaser (through the Servicer) of an REO Property, the Servicer shall obtain a narrative appraisal thereof (at the expense of the Purchaser) in order to determine the fair market value of such REO Property. The Servicer shall also cause each REO Property to be inspected promptly upon the acquisition of title thereto and shall cause each REO Property to be inspected at least annually thereafter, and Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed for expenses in connection therewith in accordance with this Agreement. The Servicer shall make or cause to be made a written report of each such inspection. Such reports shall be retained in the Mortgage File and copies thereof shall be forwarded by the Servicer to the Purchaser. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if a REMIC election has been or is to be made with respect to the arrangement under which the Mortgage Loans and the REO Properties are held, then the Servicer shall manage, conserve, protect and operate each REO Property in a manner that does not cause such REO Property to fail to qualify as “foreclosure property” within the meaning of Section 86OG(a)(8) of the Code or result in the receipt by such REMIC of any “income from non-permitted assets” within the meaning of Section 86OF(a)(2)(B) or any “net income from foreclosure property” within the meaning of Section 86OG(c)(2) of the Code (or comparable provisions of any successor or similar legislation).
 
The Servicer shall deposit and hold all revenues and funds collected and received in connection with the operation of each REO Property in the Collection Account, and the Servicer shall account separately for revenues and funds received or expended with respect to each REO Property.
 
The Servicer shall have full power and authority, subject only to the specific requirements and prohibitions of this Agreement (and, in particular, Section 5.01(3)(c)), to do any and all things in connection with any REO Property as are consistent with the servicing standards set forth in Section 5.01. In connection therewith, the Servicer shall deposit or cause to be deposited within two (2) Business Day of receipt in the Collection Account all revenues and collections received or collected by it with respect to each REO Property, including all proceeds of any REO Disposition. Subject to Section 5.15, the Servicer shall withdraw (without duplication) from the Collection Account and or Escrow Account, but solely from the revenues and collections received or collected by it with respect to a specific REO Property, such funds necessary for the proper operation, management and maintenance of such REO Property, including the following:
 
(1)  all insurance premiums due and payable in respect of such REO Property;
 
(2)  all real estate taxes and assessments in respect of such REO Property that may result in the imposition of a lien thereon;
 
(3)  all customary and reasonable costs and expenses necessary to maintain, repair, appraise, evaluate, manage or operate such REO Property (including the customary and reasonable costs incurred by any “managing agent” retained by the Servicer in connection with the maintenance, management or operation of such REO Property);
 
(4)  all reasonable costs and expenses of restoration improvements, deferred maintenance and tenant improvements; and
 
(5)  all other reasonable costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, that the Servicer may suffer or incur in connection with its performance of its obligations under this Section (other than costs and expenses that the Servicer is expressly obligated to bear pursuant to this Agreement).
 
To the extent that amounts on deposit in the Collection Account are insufficient for the purposes set forth in clauses (1) through (5) above, the Servicer shall, subject to Section 6.04, advance the amount of funds required to cover the shortfall with respect thereto. The Servicer shall promptly notify the Purchaser in writing of any failure by the Servicer to make a Servicing Advance of the type specified in clauses (1) or (2) above (irrespective of whether such Servicing Advance is claimed to be non-recoverable by the Servicer pursuant to Section 6.04).
 
Following the consummation of an REO Disposition, the Servicer shall remit to the Purchaser, in accordance with Section 6.01, any proceeds from such REO Disposition in the Collection Account following the payment of all expenses and Servicing Advances relating to the subject REO Property.
 
Section 5.14  Sale of Specially Serviced Mortgage Loans and REO Properties
 
The Servicer shall offer to sell any REO Property in the manner that is in the best interests of the Purchaser or other owner of the REO, but no later than the time determined by the Servicer to be sufficient to result in the sale of such REO Property on or prior to the time specified in Section 5.15. In accordance with the servicing standards set forth in Section 5.01, the Servicer or designated agent of the Servicer shall solicit bids and offers from Persons for the purchase of any Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property.
 
The Servicer shall act on behalf of the Purchaser in negotiating and taking any other action necessary or appropriate in connection with the sale of any Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property, including the collection of all amounts payable in connection therewith. The Servicer shall manage and negotiate terms of sale on Specially Serviced Mortgage Loans or REO Properties with the same care, skill, prudence and diligence with which Servicer manages its own REO Properties. The proceeds of any sale after deduction of the expenses of such sale incurred in connection therewith shall be promptly deposited in (a) if such sale is an REO Disposition, in the Collection Account in accordance with Section 5.13 and (b) in any other circumstance, the Collection Account in accordance with Section 5.04.
 
Section 5.15  Realization Upon Specially Serviced Mortgage Loans and REO Properties
 
The Servicer shall foreclose upon or otherwise comparably convert the ownership of properties securing such of the Specially Serviced Mortgage Loans as come into and continue in default and as to which (a) in the reasonable judgment of the Servicer, no satisfactory arrangements can, in accordance with prudent lending practices, be made for collection of delinquent payments pursuant to Section 5.01 and (b) such foreclosure or other conversion is otherwise in accordance with Section 5.01. The Servicer shall not be required to expend its own funds in connection with any foreclosure or towards the restoration, repair, protection or maintenance of any property unless it shall determine that such expenses will be recoverable to it as Servicing Advances either through Liquidation Proceeds or through Insurance Proceeds (in accordance with Section 5.05) or from any other source relating to the Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan. The Servicer shall be required to advance funds for all other costs and expenses incurred by it in any such foreclosure proceedings; provided that it shall be entitled to reimbursement thereof from the proceeds of liquidation of the related Mortgaged Property, as contemplated by Section 5.05.
 
Upon any Mortgaged Property becoming an REO Property, the Servicer shall promptly notify the Purchaser thereof, specifying the date on which such Mortgaged Property became an REO Property. Pursuant to its efforts to sell such REO Property, the Servicer shall, either itself or through an agent selected by it, protect and conserve such REO Property in accordance with the servicing standards set forth in Section 5.01 and may, subject to Section 5.01(3)(c) and incident to its conservation and protection of the interests of the Purchaser, rent the same, or any part thereof, for the period to the sale of such REO Property.
 
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Purchaser shall not, and the Servicer shall not on the Purchaser’s behalf, acquire any real property (or personal property incident to such real property) except in connection with a default or a default that is imminent on a Mortgage Loan. If the Purchaser acquires any real property (or personal property incident to such real property) in connection with such a default, then such property shall be disposed of by the Servicer in accordance with this Section and Section 5.14 as soon as possible but in no event later than 3 years after its acquisition by the Servicer on behalf of the Purchaser, unless the Servicer obtains, at the expense of the Purchaser, in a timely fashion an extension from the Internal Revenue Service for an additional specified period.
 
If, in the exercise of its servicing obligations with respect to any Mortgaged Property hereunder, the Servicer deems it is necessary or advisable to obtain an Environmental Assessment, then the Servicer shall so obtain an Environmental Assessment, it being understood that all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the Servicer in connection with any such Environmental Assessment (including the cost thereof) shall be deemed to be Servicing Advances recoverable by the Servicer pursuant to Section 5.13(4). Such Environmental Assessment shall (a) assess whether (1) such Mortgaged Property is in material violation of applicable Environmental Laws or (2) after consultation with an environmental expert, taking the actions necessary to comply with applicable Environmental Laws is reasonably likely to produce a greater recovery on a net present value basis than not taking such actions, and (b) identify whether (1) any circumstances are present at such Mortgaged Property relating to the use, management or disposal of any hazardous materials for which investigation, testing, monitoring, containment, clean-up or re mediation could be required under any federal, state or local law or regulation, or (2) if such circumstances exist, after consultation with an environmental expert, taking such actions is reasonably likely to produce a greater recovery on a present value basis than not taking such actions. (The conditions described in the immediately preceding clauses (a) and (b) shall be referred to herein as “Environmental Conditions Precedent to Foreclosure.”) If any such Environmental Assessment so warrants, the Servicer is hereby authorized to and shall perform such additional environmental testing as it deems necessary and prudent to establish the satisfaction of the foregoing Environmental Conditions Precedent to Foreclosure or to proceed as set forth below (such additional testing thereafter being included in the term “Environmental Assessment”).
 
If an Environmental Assessment deemed necessary or advisable by the Servicer in accordance with this Section 5.15 establishes that any of the Environmental Conditions Precedent to Foreclosure is not satisfied with respect to any Mortgaged Property, but the Servicer in good faith reasonably believes that it is in the best economic interest of the Purchaser to proceed against such Mortgaged Property and, if title thereto is acquired, to take such remedial, corrective or other action with respect to the unsatisfied condition or conditions as may be prescribed by applicable law to satisfy such condition or conditions, then the Servicer shall so notify the Purchaser. If, pursuant to Section 5.01(3)(c), the Purchaser has notified the Servicer in writing to proceed against such Mortgaged Property, then the Servicer shall so proceed. The cost of any remedial, corrective or other action contemplated by the preceding sentence in respect of any of the Environmental Conditions Precedent to Foreclosure that is not satisfied shall not be an expense of the Servicer and the Servicer shall not be required to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur any financial liability in connection with any such action.
 
If an Environmental Assessment deemed necessary or advisable by the Servicer in accordance with this Section 5.15 establishes that any of the Environmental Conditions Precedent to Foreclosure is not satisfied with respect to any Mortgaged Property and, in accordance with Section 5.01(3)(c), the Purchaser elects or is deemed to have elected not to proceed against such Mortgaged Property, then the Servicer shall, subject to Section 5.01(3)(c), take such action as it deems to be in the best economic interest of the Purchaser (other than proceeding against the Mortgaged Property or directly or indirectly becoming the owner or operator thereof) as determined in accordance with the servicing standard set forth in Section 5.01 and is hereby authorized at such time as it deems appropriate to release such Mortgaged Property from the lien of the related Mortgage.
 
Prior to the Servicer taking any action with respect to the use, management or disposal of any hazardous materials for which investigation, testing, monitoring, containment, clean-up or re mediation could be required under any federal, state or local law or regulation on any Mortgaged Property, the Servicer shall request the approval of the Purchaser in accordance with Section 5.01(3)(c) and, if such action is approved by the Purchaser, (a) keep the Purchaser apprised of the progress of such action; and (b) take such action in compliance with all applicable Environmental Laws.
 
Section 5.16  Investment of Funds in the Collection Account
 
The Servicer may direct any depository institution which holds the Collection Account to invest the funds in the Collection Account in one or more Permitted Investments bearing interest. All such Permitted Investments shall be held to maturity, unless payable on demand. In the event amounts on deposit in the Collection Account are at any time invested in a Permitted Investment payable on demand, the Servicer shall:
 
(a)  
consistent with any notice required to be given thereunder, demand that payment thereon be made on the last day such Permitted Investment may otherwise mature hereunder in an amount equal to the lesser of (1) all amounts then payable thereunder and (2) the amount required to be withdrawn on such date; and
 
(b)  
demand payment of all amounts due thereunder promptly upon determination by the Servicer or notice from the Purchaser that such Permitted Investment would not constitute a Permitted Investment in respect of funds thereafter on deposit in the Collection Account.
 
All income and gain realized from investment of funds deposited in the Collection Account shall be for the benefit of the Servicer and shall be subject to its withdrawal in accordance with Section 5.05. The Servicer shall deposit in the Collection Account the amount of any loss incurred in respect of any Permitted Investment immediately upon realization of such loss.
 
Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, if any default occurs in the making of a payment due under any Permitted Investment, or if a default occurs in any other performance required under any Permitted Investment, the Purchaser may elect to take such action, or instruct the Servicer to take such action, as may be appropriate to enforce such payment or performance, including the institution and prosecution of appropriate proceedings, at the expense of the Servicer.

(2)  
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, except as provided below in this subsection (c)(2), the Servicer shall have no duty or obligation to service and administer the Pledged Assets, and the Servicer shall not be deemed to be the Pledged Asset Servicer with respect to any Pledged Asset Mortgage Loan, unless and until the related Pledged Asset Servicer’s obligations to administer the Pledged Asset as provided in the related Pledged Asset Servicing Agreement have been terminated with respect to such Pledged Asset Mortgage Loans sold hereunder, in which case the Servicer shall be bound to service and administer the related Pledged Assets and the related Surety Bond in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the related Pledge Agreements, from the date of such termination.

Such enforcement, including without limitation, the legal prosecution of claims, termination of the related Pledged Asset Servicing Agreement with respect to the related Pledged Asset Mortgage Loans, and the pursuit of other appropriate remedies, shall be carried out as the Servicer, in its good faith business judgment, would require were it the owner of the related Securities Accounts and other Pledged Assets.

Such interest shall be paid by the Servicer to the Purchaser on the date such late payment is made and shall cover the period commencing with the Business Day on which such payment was due and ending with the Business Day on which such payment is made, both inclusive. Such interest shall be remitted along with such late payment. Neither the payment by the Servicer nor the acceptance by the Purchaser of any such interest shall be deemed an extension of time for payment or a waiver by the Purchaser of any Event of Default.
 
Section 6.02  Reporting
 
On or before the 5th Business Day following the Accounting Cut-off Date of each month during the term hereof, the Servicer shall deliver to the Purchaser monthly accounting reports in the form of Exhibits 6.02(a) through 6.02(g) attached hereto with respect to the most recently ended Due Period.

Utilizing resources reasonably available to the Servicer and to the extent the requested data is contained within the Servicer’s electronic systems without incurring any cost except the Servicer’s overhead and employees’ salaries, the Servicer shall furnish to the Purchaser during the term of this Agreement such periodic, special or other reports, information or documentation, whether or not provided for herein, as shall be reasonably requested by the Purchaser with respect to Mortgage Loans or REO Properties (provided the Purchaser shall have given the Servicer reasonable notice and opportunity to prepare such reports, information or documentation), including any reports, information or documentation reasonably required to comply with any regulations of any governmental agency or body having jurisdiction over the Purchaser, all such reports or information to be as provided by and in accordance with such applicable instructions and directions as the Purchaser may reasonably request. If any of such reports, periodic, special or other reports, information or documentation are not customarily prepared by the Servicer or require that the Servicer program data processing systems to create the reports, information or documentation, then the Purchaser shall pay to the Servicer a fee mutually agreed to by the Purchaser and the Servicer taking into account the Servicer’s actual time and cost in preparing such reports, information or documentation. The Servicer agrees to execute and deliver all such instruments and take all such action as the Purchaser, from time to time, may reasonably request in order to effectuate the purposes and to carry out the terms of this Agreement.

(3)  On the Business Day prior to the Remittance Date, the Servicer shall deposit into the Collection Account payments on account of Prepayment Interest Shortfall Amount in an aggregate amount equal to the lesser of (i) the aggregate amount of Prepayment Interest Shortfall Amount for the related Remittance Date resulting solely from Principal Prepayments during the related Due Period, and (ii) the total amount of the servicing compensation that would be payable to the Servicer if no Principal Prepayment was made during the Due Period related to such Remittance Date. Such payments shall be deposited into the Collection Account.
 
Section 6.04  Non-recoverable Advances

ARTICLE VII:
GENERAL SERVICING PROCEDURE
 
Section 7.01  Enforcement of Due-on-Sale Clauses, Assumption Agreements
 
(1)  The Servicer will, to the extent it has knowledge of any conveyance or prospective conveyance by any Mortgagor of the Mortgaged Property (whether by absolute conveyance or by contract of sale, and whether or not the Mortgagor remains or is to remain liable under the Mortgage Note and/or the Mortgage), exercise its rights to accelerate the maturity of such Mortgage Loan under any “ due-on-sale” clause applicable thereto; provided that the Servicer shall not exercise any such rights if prohibited by law from doing so or if the exercise of such rights would impair or threaten to impair any recovery under the related Primary Insurance Policy, if any.
 
(2)  If the Servicer is prohibited from enforcing such “due-on-sale” clause, then the Servicer will attempt to enter into an assumption agreement with the Person to whom the Mortgaged Property has been conveyed or is proposed to be conveyed, pursuant to which such Person becomes liable under the Mortgage Note and, to the extent permitted by applicable state law, the Mortgagor remains liable thereon. (For purposes of this Section 7.01, the term “assumption” is deemed to also include a sale of the Mortgaged Property subject to the Mortgage that is not accompanied by an assumption or substitution of liability agreement.)
 
(3)  If the Servicer receives a request for any Mortgage Loan to be assumed, then the Servicer shall inquire into the creditworthiness of the proposed transferee and shall use the same underwriting criteria for approving the credit of the proposed transferee that are used with respect to underwriting mortgage loans of the same type as the Mortgage Loans. Where an assumption is allowed, the Servicer, with the prior written consent of the primary mortgage insurer, if any, and subject to the conditions of Section 7.01(3), shall, and is hereby authorized to, enter into a substitution of liability agreement with the Person to whom the Mortgaged Property is proposed to be conveyed pursuant to which the original mortgagor is released from liability and such Person is substituted as mortgagor and becomes liable under the related Mortgage Note. Any such substitution of liability agreement shall be in lieu of an assumption agreement. In no event shall the Note Rate, the amount of the Monthly Payment or the final maturity date be changed. The Servicer shall notify the Purchaser that any such substitution of liability or assumption agreement has been completed by forwarding to the Purchaser the original of any such substitution of liability or assumption agreement, which document shall be added to the related Purchaser’s Mortgage File and shall, for all purposes, be considered a part of such Purchaser’s Mortgage File to the same extent as all other documents and instruments constituting a part thereof. Any fee collected by the Servicer for entering into an assumption or substitution of liability agreement shall be retained by the Servicer as additional compensation for servicing the Mortgage Loans.
 
If the credit of the proposed transferee does not meet such underwriting criteria, then the Servicer shall, to the extent permitted by the Mortgage or the Mortgage Note and by applicable law, accelerate the maturity of the Mortgage Loan.
 
Section 7.02  Satisfaction of Mortgages and Release of Mortgage Files
 
Upon the payment in full of any Mortgage Loan, the Servicer will immediately notify the Purchaser by a certification of a Servicing Officer, which certification shall include a statement to the effect that all amounts received or to be received in connection with such payment which are required to be deposited in the Collection Account pursuant to Section 5.04 have been or will be so deposited and shall request delivery to it of the Purchaser’s Mortgage File held by the Purchaser. Upon receipt of such certification and request, the Purchaser shall promptly release the related mortgage documents to the Servicer and the Servicer shall promptly prepare and process any satisfaction or release. No expense incurred in connection with any instrument of satisfaction or deed of reconveyance shall be chargeable to the Collection Account.
 
If the Servicer satisfies or releases a Mortgage without having obtained payment in full of the indebtedness secured by the Mortgage, or should it otherwise take such action which results in a reduction of the coverage under the Primary Insurance Policy, if any, then the Servicer shall promptly give written notice thereof to the Purchaser, and, within 10 Business Days following written demand therefor from the Purchaser to the Servicer, the Servicer shall repurchase the related Mortgage Loan by paying to the Purchaser the Repurchase Price therefor by wire transfer of immediately available funds directly to the Purchaser’s Account.
 
From time to time and as appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of the Mortgage Loan, including for this purpose collection under any Primary Insurance Policy, the Purchaser shall, upon request of the Servicer and delivery to the Purchaser of a servicing receipt signed by a Servicing Officer, release the Purchaser’s Mortgage File held by the Purchaser to the Servicer. Such servicing receipt shall obligate the Servicer to return the related mortgage documents to the Purchaser when the need therefor by the Servicer no longer exists, unless the Mortgage Loan has been liquidated and the Liquidation Proceeds relating to the Mortgage Loan have been deposited in the Collection Account or the Purchaser’s Mortgage File or such document has been delivered 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 nonjudicially, and the Servicer has delivered to the Purchaser a certificate of a Servicing Officer certifying as to the name and address of the Person to which such Purchaser’s Mortgage File or such document was delivered and the purpose or purposes of such delivery. Upon receipt of a certificate of a Servicing Officer stating that such Mortgage Loan was liquidated and the Liquidation Proceeds were deposited in the Collection Account, the servicing receipt shall be released by the Purchaser to the Servicer.
 
Section 7.03  Servicing Compensation
 
As compensation for its services hereunder, the Servicer shall be entitled to retain from interest payments on the Mortgage Loans the amounts provided for as the Servicing Fee. The Servicing Fee in respect of a Mortgage Loan for a particular month shall become payable only upon the receipt by the Servicer from the Mortgagor of the full Monthly Payment in respect of such Mortgage Loan. Additional servicing compensation in the form of assumption fees, as provided in Section 7.01, late payment charges and other servicer compensation for modifications, short sales as provided in Section 5.01(e), and other shall be retained by the Servicer to the extent not required to be deposited in the Collection Account. In the event that Liquidation Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds and proceeds from any REO Disposition exceeds the Unpaid Principal Balance of such Mortgage Loan plus unpaid interest accrued thereon at a per annum rate equal to the related Remittance Rate, the Servicer shall be entitled to retain therefrom and pay to itself any Foreclosure Profits and any Servicing Fee considered to be accrued but unpaid. The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its servicing activities hereunder and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor except as specifically provided for herein.
 
Section 7.04  Annual Statement as to Compliance
 
The Servicer will deliver to the Purchaser or the Purchaser’s designee on or before March 15 of each year, beginning with March 15, 2005, an Officers’ Certificate in the form of Exhibit 11 stating that (i) a review of the activities of the Servicer during the preceding calendar year and of performance under this Agreement has been made under such officers’ supervision, (ii) the Servicer has fully complied with the provisions of this Agreement and (iii) to the best of such officers’ knowledge, based on such review, the Servicer has fulfilled all of its obligations under this Agreement throughout such year, or, if there has been a default in the fulfillment of any such obligation, specifying each such default known to such officer and the nature and status thereof.
 
Section 7.05  Annual Independent Certified Public Accountants’ Servicing Report
 
On or before February 28 of each year beginning February 28, 2005 the Servicer at its expense shall cause a firm of independent public accountants which is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants to furnish a statement to the Purchaser to the effect that such firm has examined certain documents and records relating to the servicing of mortgage loans by the Servicer generally that include a sampling of the Mortgage Loans, the provisions of Article VI have been complied with and, on the basis of such an examination conducted substantially in accordance with the Uniform Single Attestation Program for Mortgage Bankers, such servicing has been conducted in compliance with this Agreement, except for (i) such exceptions as such firm shall believe to be immaterial, and (ii) such other exceptions as shall be set forth in such statement.
 
Section 7.06  Purchaser’s Right to Examine Servicer Records
 
The Purchaser shall have the right to examine and audit, during business hours or at such other times as are reasonable under applicable circumstances, upon 15 Business Days advance notice any and all of (i) the credit and other loan files relating to the Mortgage Loans or the Mortgagors, (ii) any and all books, records, documentation or other information of the Servicer (whether held by the Servicer or by another) relating to the servicing of the Mortgage Loans and (iii) any and all books, records, documentation or other information of the Servicer (whether held by the Servicer or by another) that are relevant to the performance or observance by the Servicer of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement. The Servicer shall be obligated to make the foregoing information available to the Purchaser at the site where such information is stored; provided that the Purchaser shall be required to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the Servicer in making such information available.

During the term hereof, the Servicer will deliver to the Purchaser audited financial statements for each of its fiscal years following the Funding Date and all other financial statements prepared following the Funding Date to the extent any such statements are available upon request to the public at large.

The Servicer shall be reimbursed from amounts on deposit in the Collection Account for all amounts advanced by it pursuant to the second preceding sentence except when the claim in any way relates to the Servicer’s indemnification pursuant to this Section 9.01.

Each Seller will keep in full effect its existence, rights and franchises as a corporation or a Delaware business trust, as applicable, under the laws of the state of its organization and will obtain and preserve its qualification to do business as a foreign entity in each jurisdiction in which such qualification is or shall be necessary to protect the validity and enforceability of this Agreement or any of the Mortgage Loans and to perform its duties under this Agreement.
 
Any Person into which a Seller may be merged or consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation (including by means of the sale of all or substantially all of such Seller’s assets to such Person) to which the Seller shall be a party, or any Person succeeding to the business of the Seller, shall be the successor of the Seller hereunder, without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding; provided that, unless otherwise consented to by the Purchaser, the successor or surviving Person, in the case of a merger or consolidation, etc. of the Servicer, shall be an institution qualified to service mortgage loans on behalf of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac in accordance with the requirements of Section 3.02(1) and shall not cause a rating on any security backed by a Mortgage Loan to be downgraded.

Section 9.04  Servicer Not to Resign
 
With respect to the retention by PHH Mortgage of the servicing of the Mortgage Loans and the REO Properties hereunder, PHH Mortgage acknowledges that the Purchaser has acted in reliance upon PHH Mortgage’s independent status, the adequacy of its servicing facilities, plan, personnel, records and procedures, its integrity, reputation and financial standing and the continuance thereof.

In case one or more of the following events shall occur and be continuing:
 
(1)  any failure by the Servicer to remit to the Purchaser any payment required to be made under the terms of this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of 1 Business Day unless such failure to remit is due to a cause beyond the Servicer’s control, including an act of God, act of civil, military or governmental authority, fire, epidemic, flood, blizzard, earthquake, riot, war, or sabotage, provided that the Servicer gives the Purchaser notice of such cause promptly and uses its reasonable efforts to correct such failure to remit and does so remit within 2 Business Days following the end of the duration of the cause of such failure to remit;
 
(2)  any failure on the part of a Seller/Servicer duly to observe or perform in any material respect any of the covenants or agreements on the part of such Seller/Servicer set forth in this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of 30 days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to the applicable Seller/Servicer by the Purchaser; provided that such 30-day period shall not begin with respect to any failure to cure, repurchase or substitute in accordance with Sections 2.04 and/or 3.04 until the expiration of the cure periods provided for in Sections 2.04 and/or 3.04, as applicable;
 
(3)  any filing of an Insolvency Proceeding by or on behalf of a Seller/Servicer, any consent by or on behalf of a Seller/Servicer to the filing of an Insolvency Proceeding against a Seller/Servicer, or any admission by or on behalf of a Seller/Servicer of its inability to pay its debts generally as the same become due;
 
(4)  any filing of an Insolvency Proceeding against a Seller/Servicer that remains undismissed or unstayed for a period of 60 days after the filing thereof;
 
(5)  any issuance of any attachment or execution against, or any appointment of a conservator, receiver or liquidator with respect to, all or substantially all of the assets of a Seller/Servicer;

(8)  any failure by the Seller to be in compliance with applicable “doing business” or licensing laws of any jurisdiction where Mortgaged Property is located;
