All references herein to the respective duties of the Primary Servicer and the Special Servicer, and to the areas in which they may exercise discretion, shall be subject to Section 3.23 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, as modified herein, and to the Special Servicer’s rights to service Specially Serviced Loans.

as if fully set forth herein, and, for purposes of this Agreement, in addition to the References Modification, are hereby further modified as set forth below:

 

(1)          Section 1.02. The determination as to the application of amounts collected in respect of any Mortgage Loan, in the absence of express provisions in the related Loan Documents or to the extent that such terms authorize the lender to use its discretion, shall be made by the Master Servicer.

 

(2)          Section 2.04(a). Section 2.04(a)(i) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement shall be deemed modified to read “The Primary Servicer is a national banking association, duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the United States of America, and the Primary Servicer is in compliance with the laws of each State (within the United States of America) in which any related Mortgaged Property is located to the extent necessary to perform its obligations under this Agreement.” The Primary Servicer hereby represents and warrants, as of the date hereof, that (i) each insurance policy and fidelity bond referenced in Section 3.08(d) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement names the Master Servicer as a loss payee; (ii) the Primary Servicer is authorized to transact business in the state or states in which the Mortgaged Properties for the Mortgage Loans are situated, if and to the extent required by applicable law, except where the failure to so comply would not adversely affect the Primary Servicer’s ability to perform its obligations in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; and (iii) the Primary Servicer is not a Prohibited Party.

 

(3)          Sections 3.01(a) and (b). Without limiting the generality of the obligations of the Primary Servicer hereunder, the Primary Servicer shall monitor and certify on a quarterly basis, starting with the quarter ending June of 2016, within thirty (30) days of the end of such quarter the information on each Mortgage Loan as required by, and in the form of, Exhibit E attached hereto, pursuant to Section 3.01(c)(24) of this Agreement.

(4)          Sections 3.01(c) and (d). References to the Master Servicer shall not be deemed to be references to the Primary Servicer for purposes of Sections 3.01(c) and (d) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement. Each provision of Sections 3.01(c) and (d) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement shall be enforceable against the Primary Servicer in accordance with the terms thereof. The Primary Servicer may not enter into Sub-Servicing Agreements in connection with the Mortgage Loans, but the Primary Servicer may delegate its duties to agents or Subcontractors so long as the related agreements or arrangements with such agents or Subcontractors are consistent with the provisions of Section 3.01(c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (including, for the avoidance of doubt, that no such agent or Subcontractor is a Prohibited Party at the time the related delegation arrangement is entered into). This Agreement will be assumed by the Trustee if the Trustee has assumed the duties of the Master Servicer or by an successor Master Servicer without cost or obligation to the assuming party or the Trust Fund, upon the assumption by such party of the obligations of the Master Servicer pursuant to Section

The Primary Servicer shall give the Master Servicer not less than five (5) Business Days’ notice before the date on which the Master Servicer is required to make any Servicing Advance with respect to any Mortgage Loan. In addition, the Primary Servicer shall provide the Master Servicer with such information in its possession as the Master Servicer may reasonably request to enable the Master Servicer to determine whether a requested Servicing Advance would constitute a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance.

 

(10)        Section 3.05(a).

Each indemnified party hereunder shall give prompt written notice to the indemnitor of matters which may give rise to liability of such indemnitor hereunder; provided, however, that failure to give such notice shall not relieve the indemnitor of any liability except to the extent of actual prejudice.

If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, then, and in each and every such case, so long as such Event of Default shall not have been remedied, the Master Servicer or, with respect to any Event of Default under clause (k) above, the Depositor, may terminate, by notice in writing to the Primary Servicer, all of the rights and obligations of the Primary Servicer as Primary Servicer under this Agreement and in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof. From and after the receipt by the Primary Servicer of such written notice, all authority and power of the Primary Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Mortgage Loans or otherwise, shall pass to and be vested in the Master Servicer pursuant to and under Section 4.01 of this Agreement, and, without limitation, the Master Servicer is hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of and at the expense of the Primary Servicer, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, any and all documents and other instruments, and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such notice of termination, whether to complete the transfer and endorsement or assignment of the Mortgage Loans and related documents, or otherwise. The Primary Servicer agrees that if it is terminated pursuant to Section 4.01 of this Agreement, it shall promptly (and in any event no later than five (5) Business Days subsequent to its receipt of the notice of termination) provide the Master Servicer with all documents and records (including, without limitation, those in electronic form) requested by it to enable it to assume the Primary Servicer’s functions hereunder, and shall cooperate with the Master Servicer in effecting the termination of the Primary Servicer’s responsibilities and rights hereunder and the assumption by a successor of the Primary Servicer’s obligations hereunder, including, without limitation, the transfer within one (1) Business Day to the Master Servicer for administration by it of all cash amounts which shall at the time be or should have been credited by the Primary Servicer to the Primary Servicer Collection Account, the Collection Account, any Escrow Account, any Reserve Account, any Lock-Box Account, or any Cash Collateral Account, or thereafter be received with respect to the Mortgage Loans or any REO Property (provided, however, that the Primary Servicer shall continue to be entitled to receive all amounts accrued or owing to it under this Agreement on or prior to the date of such termination, and it and its directors, officers, employees and agents shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Section 3.03 of this Agreement notwithstanding any such termination).

Section 4.02          Waiver of Defaults.

 

The Master Servicer may waive any default by the Primary Servicer in the performance of its obligations hereunder and its consequences. Upon any such waiver of a past default, such default shall cease to exist, and any Event of Default arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been remedied for every purpose of this Agreement. No such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other default or impair any right consequent thereon except to the extent expressly so waived.

 

22
 

 

Section 4.03          Other Remedies of Master Servicer.

 

During the continuance of any Event of Default, so long as such Event of Default shall not have been remedied, the Master Servicer, in addition to the rights specified in Section 4.01 of this Agreement, shall have the right, in its own name, to take all actions now or hereafter existing at law, in equity or by statute to enforce its rights and remedies (including the institution and prosecution of all judicial, administrative and other proceedings and the filing of proofs of claim and debt in connection therewith). Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, no remedy provided for by this Agreement shall be exclusive of any other remedy, and each and every remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to any other remedy and no delay or omission to exercise any right or remedy shall impair any such right or remedy or shall be deemed to be a waiver of any Event of Default.
