(iii)       consider the interests of the Trust's creditors in connection with its actions;

(iv)       hold itself out to creditors and the public as a legal entity separate and distinct from any other Person and correct any known misunderstanding regarding its separate identity and refrain from engaging in any activity that compromises the separate legal identity of the Trust;

(v)        prepare and maintain separate records, accounts and financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, consistently applied, and susceptible to audit.  To the extent it is included in consolidated financial statements or consolidated tax returns, such financial statements and tax returns will reflect the separateness of the respective entities and indicate that the assets of the Trust will not be available to satisfy the debts of any other Person;

(vi)       allocate and charge fairly and reasonably any overhead shared with any other Person;

(vii)      transact all business with affiliates on an arm’s-length basis and pursuant to written, enforceable agreements;

(x)        in the event that services have been or are in the future performed or paid by any Person on behalf of the Trust (other than the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee, the Servicer or the Tax Matters Person as permitted herein), reimburse such Person, as applicable, for the commercially reasonable value of such services or expenses provided or incurred by such Person.  Accordingly, (i) the Trust shall reimburse such Person, as applicable, for the commercially reasonable value of such services or expenses provided or incurred by such Person; (ii) to the extent invoices for such services are not allocated and separately billed to the Trust, the amount thereof that was or is to be allocated and separately billed to the Trust was or will be reasonably related to the services provided to the Trust; and (iii) any other allocation of direct, indirect or overhead expenses for items shared between the Trust and any other Person, was or will be, to the extent practicable, allocated on the basis of actual use or value of services rendered or otherwise on a basis reasonably related to actual use or the value of services rendered;

(xi)       except as expressly permitted by this Agreement, not commingle its assets or funds with those of any other Person;

(xiii)      except as expressly permitted by this Agreement, not pledge its assets for the benefit of any other Person;

(xiv)     not hold out its credit or assets as being available to satisfy the obligations of others;

(xv)      pay its liabilities only out of its funds;

(xvi)     pay the salaries of its own employees, if any; and

(xvii)     cause the agents and other representatives of the Trust, if any, to act at all times with respect to the Trust consistently and in furtherance of the foregoing.

None of the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee, the Company or the Servicer shall (except by amendment of this Agreement permitted by Section 10.01) take any action that is inconsistent with the purposes of the Trust or Section 2.02 or Section 2.03.  Neither the Company nor the Servicer shall (except by amendment of this Agreement permitted by Section 10.01) direct the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee to take any action that is inconsistent with the purposes of the Trust or Section 2.02 or Section 2.03.

Section 2.04.        Conveyance of Mortgage Pool Assets; Security Interest.

Concurrently with the execution and delivery hereof, the Company does hereby irrevocably sell, transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to the Trust, without recourse, all the Company’s right, title and interest in and to the Mortgage Pool Assets (such transfer and assignment by the Company to be referred to herein as the “Conveyance”).

It is the express intent of the parties hereto that the Conveyance of the Mortgage Pool Assets to the Trust by the Company as provided in this Section 2.04 be, and be construed as, an absolute sale of the Mortgage Pool Assets. It is, further, not the intention of the parties that such Conveyance be deemed the grant of a security interest in the Mortgage Pool Assets by the Company to the Trust to secure a debt or other obligation of the Company. However, in the event that, notwithstanding the intent of the parties, the Mortgage Pool Assets are held to be the property of the Company, or if for any other reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create a security interest in the Mortgage Pool Assets, then:

(a)        this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement;

(b)        the conveyance provided for in this Section 2.04 shall be deemed to be a grant by the Company to the Trust of, and the Company hereby grants to the Trust, to secure all of the Company’s obligations hereunder, a security interest in all of the Company’s right, title, and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to:

(I)        The Mortgage Pool Assets;

(II)       All accounts, chattel paper, deposit accounts, documents, general intangibles, goods, instruments, investment property, letter-of-credit rights, letters of credit, money, and oil, gas, and other minerals, consisting of, arising from, or relating to, any of the foregoing; and

(III)      All proceeds of the foregoing.

The Company shall file such financing statements, and the Company, the Servicer and the Trustee acting on behalf of the Trust at the direction of the Company shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such other actions as may be necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were found to create a security interest in the Mortgage Pool Assets, such security interest would be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of the Agreement. In connection herewith, the Trust shall have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party and creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code as in force in the relevant jurisdiction.

In the event that a pleading is filed in a court of competent jurisdiction asserting that this Agreement creates a security interest in the Mortgage Pool Assets, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall take actual possession of the Mortgage Pool Assets or, at the Company's option, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall be provided an Opinion of Counsel addressed to the Trust and the Trustee reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee to the effect that such security interest is a perfected security interest of first priority while the Mortgage Pool Assets are in the possession of the Company or its affiliates.

Section 2.05.        Delivery of Mortgage Files.

In connection with the sale, transfer and assignment referred to in Section 2.04, the Company, concurrently with the execution and delivery hereof, does deliver to, and deposit with, or cause to be delivered to and deposited with, the Trustee or Custodian the Mortgage Files, which shall at all times be identified in the records of the Trustee or the Custodian, as applicable, as being held by or on behalf of the Trust.

Concurrently with the execution and delivery hereof, the Company shall cause to be filed the UCC assignment or amendment referred to in clause (Y)(vii) of the definition of “Mortgage File.”  In connection with its servicing of Cooperative Loans, the Servicer will use its best efforts to file timely continuation statements, if necessary, with regard to each financing statement and assignment relating to Cooperative Loans.

In instances where the original recorded Mortgage or any intervening assignment thereof (recorded or in recordable form) required to be included in the Mortgage File pursuant to the definition of “Mortgage File” relating to a Mortgage Loan is not included in the Mortgage File delivered to the Trustee (or the Custodian) prior to or concurrently with the execution and delivery hereof (due to a delay on the part of the recording office), the Company shall deliver to the Trustee (or the Custodian) a fully legible reproduction (which may be in electronic form) of the original Mortgage or intervening assignment provided that the originator, the related Lender or the escrow or title company which provided closing services in connection with such Mortgage Loan certifies on the face of such reproduction(s) or copy as follows: “Certified true and correct copy of original which has been transmitted for recordation.” For purposes hereof, transmitted for recordation means having been mailed or otherwise delivered for recordation to the appropriate authority. In all such instances, the Company shall transmit the original recorded Mortgage and any intervening assignments with evidence of recording thereon (or a copy of such original Mortgage or intervening assignment certified by the applicable recording office) (which may be in electronic form) (collectively, “Recording Documents”) to the Trustee (or the Custodian) within 270 days after the execution and delivery hereof. In instances where, due to a delay on the part of the recording office where any such Recording Documents have been delivered for recordation, the Recording Documents cannot be delivered to the Trustee within 270 days after execution and delivery hereof, the Company shall deliver to the Trustee within such time period a certificate (a “Company Officer’s Certificate”) signed by the Chairman of the Board, President, any Vice President or Treasurer of the Company stating the date by which the Company expects to receive such Recording Documents from the applicable recording office. In the event that Recording Documents have still not been received by the Company and delivered to the Trustee (or the Custodian) by the date specified in its previous Company Officer’s Certificate delivered to the Trustee, the Company shall deliver to the Trustee by such date an additional Company Officer’s Certificate stating a revised date by which the Company expects to receive the applicable Recording Documents. This procedure shall be repeated until the Recording Documents have been received by the Company and delivered to the Trustee (or the Custodian).

For Mortgage Loans for which the Company has received a Payoff after the Cut-Off Date and prior to the date of execution and delivery hereof, the Company, in lieu of delivering the above documents, herewith delivers to the Trustee a certification of a Servicing Officer of the nature set forth in Section 3.10.

The Trustee is authorized, with the Servicer’s consent, to appoint any bank or trust company approved by each of the Company and the Servicer as Custodian of the documents or instruments referred to in this Section 2.05, Section 2.10 or Section 2.13, and to enter into a Custodial Agreement for such purpose; provided, however, that the Trustee shall be and remain liable for the acts of any such Custodian only to the extent that it is responsible for its own acts hereunder.  Any documents delivered by the Company or the Servicer to the Custodian shall be deemed to have been delivered to the Trustee for all purposes hereunder; and any documents held by the Custodian shall be deemed to be held by the Trustee for all purposes hereunder.  There shall be a written Custodial Agreement between the Trustee and each Custodian. Each Custodial Agreement shall contain an acknowledgment by the Custodian that all Mortgage Pool Assets, Mortgage Files, and other documents and property held by it at any time are held by it for the benefit of the Trust. Pursuant to the Initial Custodial Agreement, the Initial Custodian shall perform responsibilities of the Trustee with respect to the delivery, receipt, examination and custody of the Mortgage Files on the Trustee’s behalf, as provided therein.

On or promptly after the Closing Date, the Servicer shall cause the MERS® System to indicate that each MERS Loan, if any, has been assigned to “Deutsche Bank National Trust Company, as Trustee, without recourse” or to “WaMu Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates Series 2005-AR8 Trust, without recourse” by including in the MERS® System computer files (a) the code necessary to identify the Trustee and (b) the code necessary to identify the series of the Certificates issued in connection with such Mortgage Loans; provided, however, that in the event the Company acquired such Mortgage Loans from an affiliate of the Company, then the Servicer need not cause the MERS® System to indicate such assignment.  The Servicer shall not alter the codes referenced in this paragraph with respect to any MERS Loan during the term of this Agreement except in connection with an assignment of such MERS Loan or de-registration thereof from the MERS® System in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

Section 2.06.        REMIC Election for REMIC I.

The Servicer, shall, on behalf of REMIC I, elect to treat REMIC I as a REMIC within the meaning of Section 860D of the Code and, if necessary, under applicable state laws. Such election shall be included in the Form 1066 and any appropriate state return to be filed on behalf of REMIC I for its first taxable year.

The Closing Date is hereby designated as the “startup day” of REMIC I within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(9) of the Code.

The regular interests (as set forth in the table contained in the Preliminary Statement hereto) relating to REMIC I are hereby designated as “regular interests” in REMIC I for purposes of Section 860G(a)(1) of the Code. The Class R-1 Residual Interest is hereby designated as the sole class of “residual interest” in REMIC I for purposes of Section 860G(a)(2) of the Code. The REMIC I Regular Interests and the Class R-1 Residual Interest shall together be deemed to be a separate series of beneficial interests in the assets of the Trust consisting of the REMIC I Assets pursuant to Section 3806(b)(2) of the Statutory Trust Statute.

The parties intend that the affairs of REMIC I shall constitute, and that the affairs of  REMIC I shall be conducted so as to qualify REMIC I as a REMIC. In furtherance of such intention, the Servicer shall, on behalf of REMIC I: (a) prepare and file, or cause to be prepared and filed, a federal tax return using a calendar year as the taxable year and using an accrual method of accounting for REMIC I when and as required by the REMIC Provisions and other applicable federal income tax laws; (b) make an election, on behalf of the trust, for REMIC I to be treated as a REMIC on the federal tax return of  REMIC I for its first taxable year, in accordance with the REMIC Provisions; (c) prepare and forward, or cause to be prepared and forwarded, to the Holders of the REMIC I Regular Interests and the Class R-1 Residual Interest and the Trustee, all information reports as and when required to be provided to them in accordance with the REMIC Provisions, and make available the information necessary for the application of Section 860E(e) of the Code; (d) conduct the affairs of REMIC I at all times that any REMIC I Regular Interests are outstanding so as to maintain the status of REMIC I as a REMIC under the REMIC Provisions; (e) not knowingly or intentionally take any action or omit to take any action that would cause the termination of the REMIC status of REMIC I; and (f) pay the amount of any federal prohibited transaction penalty taxes imposed on REMIC I when and as the same shall be due and payable (but such obligation shall not prevent the Servicer from contesting any such tax in appropriate proceedings and shall not prevent the Servicer from withholding payment of such tax, if permitted by law, pending the outcome of such proceedings); provided, that the Servicer shall be entitled to be indemnified by REMIC I for any such prohibited transaction penalty taxes if the Servicer’s failure to exercise reasonable care was not the primary cause of the imposition of such prohibited transaction penalty taxes.

The Company and the Trustee shall promptly provide the Servicer with such information in the possession of the Trustee or the Company, respectively, as the Servicer may from time to time request for the purpose of enabling the Servicer to prepare or cause the preparation of tax returns.  If so requested by the Servicer, the Trustee shall sign tax returns on behalf of the REMICs.

In the event that a Mortgage Loan is discovered to have a defect which, had such defect been discovered before the startup day, would have prevented such Mortgage Loan from being a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code, and the Company does not repurchase such Mortgage Loan within 90 days of such date, the Servicer, on behalf of the Trustee, shall within 90 days of the date such defect is discovered sell such Mortgage Loan at such price as the Servicer in its sole discretion, determines to be the greatest price that will result in the purchase thereof within 90 days of such date, unless the Servicer delivers to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that continuing to hold such Mortgage Loan will not adversely affect the status of the electing portion of REMIC I as a REMIC for federal income tax purposes.

In the event that any tax is imposed on “prohibited transactions” of REMIC I as defined in Section 860F of the Code and not paid by the Servicer pursuant to clause (f) of the third preceding paragraph, such tax shall be charged against amounts otherwise distributable to the Class R-1 Residual Interest. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Trustee is hereby authorized to retain from amounts otherwise distributable to the Class R-1 Residual Interest on any Distribution Date sufficient funds to reimburse the Servicer, for the payment of such tax (upon the written request of the Servicer, to the extent reimbursable, and to the extent that the Servicer has not been previously reimbursed therefor).

Section 2.07.        Acceptance by Trustee. The Trustee acknowledges receipt (or with respect to any Mortgage Loan subject to a Custodial Agreement, receipt by the Custodian thereunder) on behalf of the Trust of the documents (or certified copies thereof as specified in Section 2.05) referred to in Section 2.05 above, but without having made the review required to be made within 45 days pursuant to this Section 2.07. The Trustee acknowledges that all Mortgage Pool Assets, Mortgage Files, and related documents and property held by it at any time are held by it as Trustee of the Trust for the benefit of the holders of the REMIC I Regular Interests and the Class R-1 Residual Interest. The Trustee agrees, for the benefit of the Trust, to review (or cause the Initial Custodian to review) each Mortgage File within 45 days after the Closing Date and deliver to the Company a certification (or cause the Initial Custodian to deliver to the Company a certification, which satisfies the applicable requirements of this Agreement; provided, however, that with respect to the Initial Custodian, Exhibit B-2 to the Initial Custodial Agreement is deemed to satisfy the applicable requirements of this Agreement) in the form attached as Exhibit M hereto, to the effect that, except as noted, all documents required (in the case of instruments described in clauses (X)(ii), (X)(iv) and (Y)(ix) of the definition of “Mortgage File,” known by the Trustee to be required) pursuant to the definition of “Mortgage File” and Section 2.05 have been executed and received, and that such documents relate to the Mortgage Loans identified in the Mortgage Loan Schedule. In performing such review, the Trustee may rely upon the purported genuineness and due execution of any such document, and on the purported genuineness of any signature thereon. The Trustee shall not be required to make any independent examination of any documents contained in each Mortgage File beyond the review specifically required herein. The Trustee makes no representations as to: (i) the validity, legality, enforceability or genuineness of any of the Mortgage Loans identified on the Mortgage Loan Schedule, or (ii) the collectability, insurability, effectiveness or suitability of any Mortgage Loan. If the Trustee finds any document or documents constituting a part of a Mortgage File not to have been executed or received, or to be unrelated to the Mortgage Loans identified in the Mortgage Loan Schedule, the Trustee shall promptly so notify the Company. The Company hereby covenants and agrees that, if any such defect cannot be corrected or cured, the Company shall, not later than 60 days after the Trustee’s notice to it respecting such defect, within the three-month period commencing on the Closing Date (or within the two-year period commencing on the Closing Date if the related Mortgage Loan is a “defective obligation” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(4)(B)(ii) of the Code and Treasury Regulation Section 1.860G-2(f)), either (i) repurchase the related Mortgage Loan from the Trust at the Purchase Price, or (ii) substitute for any Mortgage Loan to which such defect relates a different mortgage loan (a “Substitute Mortgage Loan”) which is a “qualified replacement mortgage” (as defined in the Code) and, (iii) after such three-month or two-year period, as applicable, the Company shall repurchase the Mortgage Loan from the Trust at the Purchase Price but only if the Mortgage Loan is in default or default is, in the judgment of the Company, reasonably imminent. If such defect would cause the Mortgage Loan to be other than a “qualified mortgage” (as defined in the Code), then notwithstanding the previous sentence or any provision in the definition of “Purchase Price,” the repurchase or substitution must occur within the sooner of (i) 90 days from the date the defect was discovered or (ii) in the case of substitution, two years from the Closing Date.

Such Substitute Mortgage Loan shall be an adjustable rate mortgage loan with a first  Interest Rate Adjustment Date occurring on approximately the same date as the first Interest Rate Adjustment Date for the Mortgage Loan being substituted for and adjustments monthly thereafter, based on the Index, and with the same Minimum Monthly Payment Adjustment Terms as the Mortgage Loan being substituted for, mature no later than, and not more than two years earlier than, have a principal balance and Loan-to-Value Ratio equal to or less than, and have a Pass-Through Rate on the date of substitution equal to or no more than 1 percentage point greater than, and a Margin and Rate Ceiling equal to or greater than, the Mortgage Loan being substituted for. If the aggregate of the principal balances of the Substitute Mortgage Loans substituted for a Mortgage Loan is less than the Principal Balance of such Mortgage Loan, the Company shall pay the difference in cash, together with unpaid accrued interest, if any, on the difference between the aggregate of the principal balances of the Substitute Mortgage Loans and the Principal Balance of such Mortgage Loan during the calendar month in which the substitution occurs to the last day of such month at a rate equal to the applicable Pass-Through Rate, to the Trustee for deposit into the Certificate Account, and such payment by the Company shall be treated in the same manner as proceeds of the repurchase by the Company of a Mortgage Loan pursuant to this Section 2.07. Furthermore, such Substitute Mortgage Loan shall otherwise have such characteristics so that the representations and warranties of the Company set forth in Section 2.08 hereof would not have been incorrect had such Substitute Mortgage Loan originally been a Mortgage Loan, and the Company shall be deemed to have made such representations and warranties as to such Substitute Mortgage Loan. In addition, such Substitute Mortgage Loan shall not be a High Cost Loan or Covered Loan (as such terms are defined in the Standard & Poor's LEVELS® Glossary in effect on the date of substitution, with such exceptions thereto as the Company and S&P may reasonably agree). A Substitute Mortgage Loan may be substituted for a defective Mortgage Loan whether or not such defective Mortgage Loan is itself a Substitute Mortgage Loan.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, each Substitute Mortgage Loan shall be deemed to have the same Pass-Through Rate as the Mortgage Loan for which it was substituted.

The Purchase Price for each purchased or repurchased Mortgage Loan shall be deposited by the Company in the Certificate Account and, upon receipt by the Trustee of written notification of such deposit signed by a Servicing Officer, the Trustee shall (or, if applicable, shall cause the Custodian to) release to the Company the related Mortgage File and shall execute and deliver (or, in the event that the Mortgage Files are held in the name of the Custodian, shall cause the Custodian to execute and deliver) on behalf of the Trust such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, as shall be necessary to vest in the Company or its designee or assignee title to any Mortgage Loan released pursuant hereto. In furtherance of the foregoing, if such Mortgage Loan is a MERS Loan and as a result of the repurchase thereof such Mortgage Loan shall cease to be serviced by a servicer that is a member of MERS or if the Company or its assignee shall so request, the Servicer shall cause MERS to execute and deliver an assignment of the Mortgage in recordable form from MERS to the Company or its assignee and shall cause the Mortgage Loan to be removed from registration on the MERS® System in accordance with MERS’ rules and procedures. The obligation of the Company to repurchase or substitute any Mortgage Loan as to which such a defect in a constituent document exists shall constitute the sole remedy respecting such defect available to the Trust or the Holders of the REMIC I Regular Interests or the Class R-1 Residual Interest.

Section 2.08.        Representations and Warranties of the Company Concerning the Mortgage Loans.

(xxx)    No Mortgage Loan is a High Cost Loan or Covered Loan (as such terms are defined in the Standard & Poor's LEVELS® Glossary in effect on the Closing Date, which is now Version 5.6b Revised, Appendix E, applicable portions of which are attached hereto as Exhibit C) and no Mortgage Loan originated on or after October 1, 2002 through March 6, 2003 is governed by the Georgia Fair Lending Act;

(xxxi)    With respect to each Cooperative Loan, the Cooperative Stock that is pledged as security for the Cooperative Loan is held by a person as a tenant-stockholder (as defined in Section 216 of the Code) in a cooperative housing corporation (as defined in Section 216 of the Code);

(xxxii)   Each Cooperative Loan is secured by a valid, subsisting and enforceable (except as such enforcement may be limited by laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and principles of equity) perfected first lien and security interest in the related Cooperative Stock securing the related Mortgage Note, subject only to (a) liens of the Cooperative for unpaid assessments representing the Mortgagor’s pro rata share of the Cooperative’s payments for its blanket mortgage, current and future real property taxes, insurance premiums, maintenance fees and other assessments to which like collateral is commonly subject and (b) other matters to which like collateral is commonly subject which do not materially interfere with the benefits of the security intended to be provided by the Security Agreement;

It is understood and agreed that the representations and warranties set forth in this Section 2.08 shall survive delivery of the respective Mortgage Files to the Trustee or the Custodian, as the case may be, and shall continue throughout the term of this Agreement. Upon discovery by any of the Company, the Servicer, the Trustee or the Custodian of a breach of any of the foregoing representations and warranties which materially and adversely affects the value of the related Mortgage Loans or the interests of the Trust in the related Mortgage Loans, the Company, the Servicer, the Trustee or the Custodian, as the case may be, discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice to the others.  Any breach of the representation set forth in clause (xxix) or clause (xxx) of this Section 2.08 shall be deemed to materially and adversely affect the value of the related Mortgage Loans or the interests of the Trust in the related Mortgage Loans.  Within 90 days of its discovery or its receipt of notice of breach, the Company shall repurchase, subject to the limitations set forth in the definition of “Purchase Price,” or substitute for the affected Mortgage Loan or Mortgage Loans or any property acquired in respect thereof from the Trust, unless it has cured such breach in all material respects.  After the end of the three-month period beginning on the “start-up day,” any such substitution shall be made only if the Company provides to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel addressed to the Trust and the Trustee reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee that each Substitute Mortgage Loan will be a “qualified replacement mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(4) of the Code. Such substitution shall be made in the manner and within the time limits set forth in Section 2.07.  Any such repurchase by the Company shall be accomplished in the manner and at the Purchase Price, if applicable, but shall not be subject to the time limits, set forth in Section 2.07.  It is understood and agreed that the obligation of the Company to provide such substitution or to make such repurchase of any affected Mortgage Loan or Mortgage Loans or any property acquired in respect thereof as to which a breach has occurred and is continuing shall constitute the sole remedy respecting such breach available to the Holders of the REMIC I Regular Interests and the Class R-1 Residual Interest or the Trustee on behalf of the Holders of the REMIC I Regular Interests and the Class R-1 Residual Interest.

Section 2.09.        Acknowledgment of Transfer of Mortgage Pool Assets.

Section 2.10.        Conveyance of REMIC II Assets; Security Interest.  Concurrently with the execution and delivery hereof, the Company does hereby irrevocably sell, transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to the Trust, without recourse, all the Company’s right, title and interest in and to the REMIC II Assets.  Pursuant to Section 3818 of the Statutory Trust Statute, the REMIC I Regular Interests shall not be cancelled and shall be held as treasury interests owned by the Trust.  The Trustee acknowledges that the REMIC II Assets are held by it as Trustee of the Trust for the benefit of the holders of the REMIC III Assets.  It is the express intent of the parties hereto that the conveyance of the REMIC II Assets to the Trust by the Company as provided in this Section 2.10 be, and be construed as, an absolute sale of the REMIC II Assets.  It is, further, not the intention of the parties that such conveyance be deemed the grant of a security interest in the REMIC II Assets by the Company to the Trust to secure a debt or other obligation of the Company.  However, in the event that, notwithstanding the intent of the parties, the REMIC II Assets are held to be the property of the Company, or if for any other reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create a security interest in the REMIC II Assets, then:

(a)        this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement;

(b)        the conveyance provided for in this Section 2.10 shall be deemed to be a grant by the Company to the Trust of, and the Company hereby grants to the Trust, to secure all of the Company’s obligations hereunder, a security interest in all of the Company’s right, title and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to:

(I)        The REMIC I Regular Interests, including without limitation all rights represented thereby in and to the Mortgage Pool Assets and the proceeds thereof;

(II)       All accounts, chattel paper, deposit accounts, documents, general intangibles, goods, instruments, investment property, letter-of-credit rights, letters of credit, money, and oil, gas, and other minerals, consisting of, arising from, or relating to, any of the foregoing; and

(III)      All proceeds of the foregoing.

The Company shall file such financing statements, and the Company and the Trustee acting on behalf of the Trust at the direction of the Company shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such other actions as may be necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were found to create a security interest in the REMIC II Assets, such security interest would be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of this Agreement. In connection herewith, the Trust shall have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party and creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code as in force in the relevant jurisdiction.

In the event that a pleading is filed in a court of competent jurisdiction asserting that this Agreement creates a security interest in the REMIC II Assets, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall take actual possession of the REMIC II Assets or, at the Company's option, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall be provided an Opinion of Counsel addressed to the Trust and the Trustee reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee to the effect that such security interest is a perfected security interest of first priority while the REMIC II Assets are in the possession of the Company or its affiliates.

Section 2.11.        REMIC Election for REMIC II.

The Servicer shall, on behalf of REMIC II, elect to treat REMIC II as a REMIC within the meaning of Section 860D of the Code and, if necessary, under applicable state laws. Such election shall be included in the Form 1066 and any appropriate state return to be filed on behalf of REMIC II for its first taxable year.

The Closing Date is hereby designated as the “startup day” of REMIC II within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(9) of the Code.

The regular interests (as set forth in the table contained in the Preliminary Statement hereto) relating to REMIC II are hereby designated as “regular interests” in REMIC II for purposes of Section 860G(a)(1) of the Code. The Class R-2 Residual Interest is hereby designated as the sole class of “residual interest” in REMIC II for purposes of Section 860G(a)(2) of the Code. The REMIC II Regular Interests and the Class R-2 Residual Interest shall together be deemed to be a separate series of beneficial interests in the assets of the Trust consisting of the REMIC II Assets pursuant to Section 3806(b)(2) of the Statutory Trust Statute.

The parties intend that the affairs of REMIC II shall constitute, and that the affairs of REMIC II shall be conducted so as to qualify it as, a REMIC. In furtherance of such intention, the Servicer shall, on behalf of REMIC II: (a) prepare and file, or cause to be prepared and filed, a federal tax return using a calendar year as the taxable year for REMIC II when and as required by the REMIC provisions and other applicable federal income tax laws; (b) make an election, on behalf of REMIC II, to be treated as a REMIC on the federal tax return of REMIC II for its first taxable year, in accordance with the REMIC provisions; (c) prepare and forward, or cause to be prepared and forwarded, to the Holders of the REMIC II Regular Interests and the Class R-2 Residual Interest all information reports as and when required to be provided to them in accordance with the REMIC provisions; (d) conduct the affairs of REMIC II at all times that any of the REMIC II Regular Interests and the Class R-2 Regular Interest are outstanding so as to maintain the status of REMIC II as a REMIC under the REMIC provisions; (e) not knowingly or intentionally take any action or omit to take any action that would cause the termination of the REMIC status of REMIC II; and (f) pay the amount of any federal prohibited transaction penalty taxes imposed on REMIC II when and as the same shall be due and payable (but such obligation shall not prevent the Servicer or any other appropriate person from contesting any such tax in appropriate proceedings and shall not prevent the Servicer from withholding payment of such tax, if permitted by law, pending the outcome of such proceedings); provided, that the Servicer shall be entitled to be indemnified from REMIC II for any such prohibited transaction penalty taxes if the Servicer’s failure to exercise reasonable care was not the primary cause of the imposition of such prohibited transaction penalty taxes.

In the event that any tax is imposed on “prohibited transactions” of REMIC II as defined in Section 860F of the Code and not paid by the Servicer pursuant to clause (f) of the preceding paragraph, such tax shall be charged against amounts otherwise distributable to the Holders of the Class R-2 Residual Interest. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Servicer is hereby authorized to retain from amounts otherwise distributable to the Holders of the Class R-2 Residual Interest on any Distribution Date sufficient funds to reimburse the Servicer for the payment of such tax (to the extent that the Servicer has not been previously reimbursed therefor).

Section 2.12.        Acknowledgement of Transfer of REMIC II Assets. The Trustee hereby acknowledges and accepts on behalf of the Trust the assignment to the Trust of the REMIC II Assets and declares that as of the Closing Date it holds and shall hold any documents constituting a part of the REMIC II Assets, and the REMIC II Assets, as Trustee in trust, upon the trust herein set forth, for the use and benefit of all present and future Holders of the REMIC II Regular Interests and the Class R-2 Residual Interest.  In connection therewith, as of the Closing Date, in exchange for the REMIC II Assets, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall cause to be authenticated and delivered, upon and pursuant to the order of the Company, the REMIC II Regular Interests and the Class R-2 Residual Interest.

Section 2.13.        Conveyance of REMIC III Assets; Security Interest.  Concurrently with the execution and delivery hereof, the Company does hereby irrevocably sell, transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to the Trust, without recourse, all the Company’s right, title and interest in and to the REMIC III Assets.  Pursuant to Section 3818 of the Statutory Trust Statute, the REMIC II Regular Interests shall not be cancelled and shall be held as treasury interests owned by the Trust.  The Trustee acknowledges that the REMIC III Assets are held by it as Trustee of the Trust for the benefit of the holders of the Certificates.  It is the express intent of the parties hereto that the conveyance of the REMIC III Assets to the Trust by the Company as provided in this Section 2.13 be, and be construed as, an absolute sale of the REMIC III Assets.  It is, further, not the intention of the parties that such conveyance be deemed the grant of a security interest in the REMIC III Assets by the Company to the Trust to secure a debt or other obligation of the Company.  However, in the event that, notwithstanding the intent of the parties, the REMIC III Assets are held to be the property of the Company, or if for any other reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create a security interest in the REMIC III Assets, then:

(a)        this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement;

(b)        the conveyance provided for in this Section 2.13 shall be deemed to be a grant by the Company to the Trust of, and the Company hereby grants to the Trust, to secure all of the Company’s obligations hereunder, a security interest in all of the Company’s right, title and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to:

(I)        The REMIC II Regular Interests, including without limitation all rights represented thereby in and to the Mortgage Pool Assets and the proceeds thereof;

(II)       All accounts, chattel paper, deposit accounts, documents, general intangibles, goods, instruments, investment property, letter-of-credit rights, letters of credit, money, and oil, gas, and other minerals, consisting of, arising from, or relating to, any of the foregoing; and

(III)      All proceeds of the foregoing.

The Company shall file such financing statements, and the Company and the Trustee acting on behalf of the Trust at the direction of the Company shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such other actions as may be necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were found to create a security interest in the REMIC III Assets, such security interest would be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of this Agreement. In connection herewith, the Trust shall have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party and creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code as in force in the relevant jurisdiction.

In the event that a pleading is filed in a court of competent jurisdiction asserting that this Agreement creates a security interest in the REMIC III Assets, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall take actual possession of the REMIC III Assets or, at the Company's option, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall be provided an Opinion of Counsel addressed to the Trust and the Trustee reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee to the effect that such security interest is a perfected security interest of first priority while the REMIC III Assets are in the possession of the Company or its affiliates.

Section 2.14.        REMIC Election for REMIC III.

The Servicer shall, on behalf of REMIC III, elect to treat REMIC III as a REMIC within the meaning of Section 860D of the Code and, if necessary, under applicable state laws. Such election shall be included in the Form 1066 and any appropriate state return to be filed on behalf of REMIC III for its first taxable year.

The Closing Date is hereby designated as the “startup day” of REMIC III within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(9) of the Code.

In the event that any tax is imposed on “prohibited transactions” of REMIC III as defined in Section 860F of the Code and not paid by the Servicer pursuant to clause (f) of the preceding paragraph, such tax shall be charged against amounts otherwise distributable to the Holders of the Class R-3 Residual Interest.

ARTICLE III

Administration and Servicing of Mortgage Loans

Section 3.01.        The Servicer.  Washington Mutual Bank shall act as Servicer to service and administer the Mortgage Loans on behalf of the Trust in accordance with the terms hereof, consistent with prudent mortgage loan servicing practices and (unless inconsistent with prudent mortgage loan servicing practices) in the same manner in which, and with the same care, skill, prudence and diligence with which, it services and administers similar mortgage loans for other portfolios, and shall have full power and authority to do or cause to be done any and all things in connection with such servicing and administration which a prudent servicer of mortgage loans would do under similar circumstances, including, without limitation, the power and authority to bring actions and defend the Mortgage Pool Assets on behalf of the Trust in order to enforce the terms of the Mortgage Notes.  The Servicer may perform its servicing responsibilities through agents or independent contractors, but shall not thereby be released from any of its responsibilities hereunder and the Servicer shall diligently pursue all of its rights against such agents or independent contractors.

The Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect or cause to be collected all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Mortgage Loans and shall, to the extent such procedures shall be consistent with this Agreement and the terms and provisions of any Primary Insurance Policy, any FHA insurance policy or VA guaranty, any hazard insurance policy, and federal flood insurance, cause to be followed such collection procedures as are followed with respect to mortgage loans comparable to the Mortgage Loans and held in portfolios of responsible mortgage lenders in the local areas where each Mortgaged Property is located. The Servicer shall enforce “due-on-sale” clauses with respect to the related Mortgage Loans, to the extent permitted by law, subject to the provisions set forth in Section 3.08.

Consistent with the foregoing, the Servicer may, in accordance with prudent mortgage loan servicing practices, (i) waive or cause to be waived any assumption fee or late payment charge in connection with the prepayment of any Mortgage Loan and (ii) only upon determining that the coverage of any applicable insurance policy or guaranty related to a Mortgage Loan will not be materially adversely affected, arrange a schedule, running for no more than 180 days after the first delinquent Due Date, for payment of any delinquent installment on any Mortgage Note or for the liquidation of delinquent items.

Consistent with the terms of this Section 3.01, the Servicer may waive, modify or vary any term of any Mortgage Loan or consent to the postponement of strict compliance with any such term or in any manner grant indulgence to any Mortgagor if it has determined, exercising its good faith business judgment in the same manner as it would if it were the owner of the related Mortgage Loan, that the security for, and the timely and full collectability of, such Mortgage Loan would not be adversely affected by such waiver, modification, postponement or indulgence; provided, however, that (unless the Mortgagor is in default with respect to the Mortgage Loan or in the reasonable judgment of the Servicer such default is imminent) the Servicer shall not permit any modification with respect to any Mortgage Loan that would (i) change the applicable Mortgage Interest Rate, defer or forgive the payment of any principal or interest, reduce the outstanding principal balance (except for actual payments of principal) or extend the final maturity date with respect to such Mortgage Loan, or (ii) be inconsistent with the terms of any applicable Primary Insurance Policy, FHA insurance policy, VA guaranty, hazard insurance policy or federal flood insurance policy. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer shall not permit any modification with respect to any Mortgage Loan that would both constitute a sale or exchange of such Mortgage Loan within the meaning of Section 1001 of the Code (including any proposed, temporary or final regulations promulgated thereunder) (other than in connection with a proposed conveyance or assumption of such Mortgage Loan that is treated as a Principal Prepayment or in a default situation) and cause any REMIC to fail to qualify as such under the Code. The Servicer shall be entitled to approve a request from a Mortgagor for a partial release of the related Mortgaged Property, the granting of an easement thereon in favor of another Person, any alteration or demolition of the related Mortgaged Property or other similar matters if it has determined, exercising its good faith business judgment in the same manner as it would if it were the owner of the related Mortgage Loan, that the security for, and the timely and full collectability of, such Mortgage Loan would not be adversely affected thereby and that REMIC I, REMIC II and REMIC III would not fail to continue to qualify as REMICs under the Code as a result thereof and that no tax on “prohibited transactions” or “contributions” after the startup day would be imposed on any REMIC as a result thereof.

The Servicer is hereby authorized and empowered by the Trust to execute and deliver or cause to be executed and delivered on behalf of the Holders of the REMIC I Regular Interests and the Class R-1 Residual Interest, and the Trust or any of them, any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release, discharge or modification, assignments of Mortgages and endorsements of Mortgage Notes in connection with refinancings (in jurisdictions where such assignments are the customary and usual standard of practice of mortgage lenders) and all other comparable instruments, with respect to the Mortgage Loans and with respect to the Mortgaged Properties. The Servicer is hereby further authorized and empowered by the Trust to execute and deliver or cause to be executed and delivered on behalf of the Holders of the REMIC I Regular Interests and the Class R-1 Residual Interest and the Trust, or any of them, such instruments of assignment or other comparable instruments as the Servicer shall, in its sole judgment, deem appropriate in order to register any Mortgage Loan on the MERS® System or to cause the removal of any Mortgage Loan from registration thereon. Any expenses incurred in connection with the actions described in the preceding sentence shall be borne by the Servicer with no right of reimbursement; provided, however, that any such expenses incurred as a result of any termination by MERS of the MERS® System shall be reimbursable to the Servicer.  The Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall execute and furnish to the Servicer, at the Servicer’s direction, any powers of attorney and other documents prepared by the Servicer and determined by the Servicer to be necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its supervisory, servicing and administrative duties under this Agreement.

The Servicer shall obtain (to the extent generally commercially available) and maintain fidelity bond and errors and omissions coverage acceptable to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac with respect to its obligations under this Agreement.  The Servicer shall establish escrow accounts for, or pay when due (by means of an advance), any tax liens in connection with the Mortgaged Properties that are not paid by the Mortgagors when due to the extent that any such payment would not constitute a Nonrecoverable Advance when made.

In connection with the servicing and administering of each Mortgage Loan, the Servicer and any affiliate of the Servicer (i) may perform services such as appraisals, default management and (in the case of affiliates only) brokerage services that are not customarily provided by servicers of mortgage loans, and shall be entitled to reasonable compensation therefor and (ii) may, at its own discretion and on behalf of the Trust, obtain credit information in the form of a “credit score” from a credit repository.

Section 3.02.        Custodial Accounts and Buydown Fund Accounts. The Servicer shall establish and maintain the Custodial Account for P&I, Buydown Fund Accounts (if any) and the special Custodial Account for Reserves and shall deposit or cause to be deposited therein within 48 hours of receipt the following amounts received or advanced by the Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loans:

(i)         all scheduled payments of principal;

(ii)        all scheduled payments of interest, net of the Servicing Fee due to the Servicer;

(iii)       all Curtailments and Payoffs; and

(iv)       all Insurance Proceeds, Liquidation Proceeds, Excess Liquidation Proceeds and Subsequent Recoveries;

provided, however, that (x) proceeds received with respect to individual Mortgage Loans from any title, hazard, or FHA insurance policy, VA guaranty, Primary Insurance Policy or other insurance policy (other than any Special Primary Insurance Policy) covering such Mortgage Loans, if required for the restoration or repair of the related Mortgaged Property, may be deposited either in the Custodial Account for Reserves or the Custodial Account for P&I and (y) such proceeds (other than proceeds from any Special Primary Insurance Policy), if not required for the restoration or repair of the related Mortgaged Property, and if not released to the Mortgagor in accordance with prudent mortgage loan servicing practices, shall be deposited in the Custodial Account for P&I, and shall be applied to the balances of the related Mortgage Loans as payments of interest and principal.

The Servicer is hereby authorized to make withdrawals from and to issue drafts against the Custodial Accounts for P&I and the Custodial Accounts for Reserves for the purposes required or permitted by this Agreement.

The Servicer hereby undertakes to assure remittance to the Certificate Account of all amounts relating to the Mortgage Loans that have been collected by the Servicer and are due to the Certificate Account pursuant to Section 4.01 of this Agreement.

Funds held in the Custodial Account for P&I and the Custodial Account for Reserves may, at the Servicer’s option, be invested in (i) one or more Eligible Investments which shall in no event mature later than the Business Day prior to the related Withdrawal Date (except if such Eligible Investments are obligations of the Trustee, such Eligible Investments may mature on the Withdrawal Date), or (ii) such other instruments as shall be required to maintain the Ratings.

Section 3.03.        The Investment Account; Eligible Investments. (a)    Not later than the Withdrawal Date, the Servicer shall withdraw or direct the withdrawal of funds in the Custodial Accounts for P&I, for deposit in the Investment Account, in an amount representing:

(i)                  Scheduled installments of principal and interest on the Mortgage Loans received by the Servicer which were due on the related Due Date, net of the Servicing Fees and less any amounts to be withdrawn later by the Servicer from the applicable Buydown Fund Accounts;

(ii)                Payoffs and the proceeds of other types of liquidations of the Mortgage Loans received by the Servicer for such Mortgage Loans during the applicable Payoff Period, with interest to the date of Payoff or liquidation less any amounts to be withdrawn later by the Servicer from the applicable Buydown Fund Accounts; and

(iii)               Curtailments received by the Servicer in the Prior Period.

At its option, the Servicer may invest funds withdrawn from the Custodial Accounts for P&I, as well as any Buydown Funds, Insurance Proceeds and Liquidation Proceeds previously received by the Servicer (including amounts paid by the Company in respect of any Purchase Obligation or its substitution obligations set forth in Section 2.07 or Section 2.08 or by the Servicer in connection with the exercise of the option to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.01) for its own account and at its own risk, during any period prior to their deposit in the Certificate Account. Such funds, as well as any funds which were withdrawn from the Custodial Accounts for P&I on or before the Withdrawal Date, but not yet deposited into the Certificate Account, shall immediately be deposited by the Servicer with the Investment Depository in an Investment Account in the name of the Servicer and the Trust for investment only as set forth in this Section 3.03. The Servicer shall bear any and all losses incurred on any investments made with such funds and shall be entitled to retain all gains realized on such investments as additional servicing compensation. Not later than the Business Day prior to the Distribution Date, the Servicer shall deposit such funds, net of any gains (except Payoff Earnings to the extent used to pay Compensating Interest) earned thereon, in the Certificate Account.

(b)        Funds held in the Investment Account shall be invested in (i) one or more Eligible Investments which shall in no event mature later than the Business Day prior to the related Distribution Date (except if such Eligible Investments are obligations of the Trustee, such Eligible Investments may mature on the Distribution Date), or (ii) such other instruments as shall be required to maintain the Ratings.

Section 3.04.        The Certificate Account.

(a)        On or prior to the Closing Date, the Trustee shall establish the Certificate Account, which shall be entitled “Washington Mutual Mortgage Securities Corp. Certificate Account under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, dated as of July 1, 2005, among Washington Mutual Mortgage Securities Corp., as Depositor and Servicer, Deutsche Bank National Trust Company, as the Trustee, and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Delaware, as the Delaware Trustee, for the benefit of WaMu Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates Series 2005-AR8 Trust created pursuant thereto”.  Promptly after the Closing Date, the Trustee shall communicate to the Servicer the account number and wiring instructions for the Certificate Account.

Not later than the Business Day prior to the related Distribution Date, the Servicer shall direct the Investment Depository to deposit into the Certificate Account the amounts previously deposited into the Investment Account (which may include a deposit of Eligible Investments) to which the Holders of the REMIC I Regular Interests and the Class R-1 Residual Interest are entitled or which are necessary for payment of any Special Primary Insurance Premiums. In addition, not later than the Business Day prior to the Distribution Date, the Servicer shall deposit into the Certificate Account any Monthly P&I Advances or other payments required to be made by the Servicer pursuant to Section 4.02 of this Agreement and any Insurance Proceeds or Liquidation Proceeds (including amounts paid by the Company in respect of any Purchase Obligation) not previously deposited in the Custodial Accounts for P&I or the Investment Account, and any amounts paid by the Servicer in connection with the exercise of its option to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.01 or any other purchase of Mortgage Loans permitted by this Agreement.

(b)        Funds held in the Certificate Account shall be invested at the written direction of the Servicer in (i) one or more Eligible Investments which shall in no event mature later than the Business Day prior to the related Distribution Date (except if such Eligible Investments are obligations of the Trustee, such Eligible Investments may mature on the Distribution Date), or (ii) such other instruments as shall be required to maintain the Ratings.  The Servicer shall be entitled to receive any gains earned on such Eligible Investments and shall bear any losses suffered in connection therewith.  If the Trustee has not received such written investment directions from the Servicer, the Trustee shall not invest funds held in the Certificate Account.  The Trustee shall have no liability for any losses on investments of funds held in the Certificate Account.

In the event the Trustee makes such investments, the parties acknowledge that the Trustee or its affiliates may receive additional compensation (not payable pursuant to this Agreement) that could be deemed to be in the Trustee's economic self-interest for (i) serving as investment adviser, administrator, shareholder, servicing agent, custodian or sub-custodian with respect to certain of the Eligible Investments, (ii) using affiliates to effect transactions in certain Eligible Investments and (iii) effecting transactions in certain Eligible Investments.

Section 3.05.        Permitted Withdrawals from the Certificate Account, the Investment Account, Custodial Accounts for P&I and Custodial Accounts for Reserves and of Buydown Funds from the Buydown Fund Accounts.

(a)        The Servicer is authorized to make withdrawals (or, in the case of the Certificate Account, to direct the Trustee to make withdrawals), from time to time, from the Investment Account, the Certificate Account, the Custodial Accounts for P&I or the Custodial Accounts for Reserves of amounts deposited therein in respect of the Certificates (and, to the extent applicable, to make deposits of the amounts withdrawn), as follows:

(i)                  To reimburse itself for Monthly P&I Advances made pursuant to Section 4.02, such right to reimbursement pursuant to this paragraph (i) being limited to amounts received on particular Mortgage Loans (including, for this purpose, Insurance Proceeds and Liquidation Proceeds) which represent late recoveries of principal and/or interest respecting which any such Monthly P&I Advance was made;

(ii)                To reimburse itself for amounts expended by or for the account of the Servicer pursuant to Section 3.09 in connection with the restoration of property damaged by an Uninsured Cause or in connection with the liquidation of a Mortgage Loan;

(iii)               To pay to itself, with respect to the related Mortgage Loans, the Servicing Fee (net of Compensating Interest reduced by Payoff Earnings and Payoff Interest) as to which no prior withdrawals from funds deposited by the Servicer have been made;

(iv)              To reimburse itself for the following amounts advanced with respect to Mortgage Loans (except for Mortgage Loans purchased by the Servicer): (A) amounts advanced with respect to payments of taxes referred to in the last sentence of the sixth paragraph of Section 3.01 (to the extent that such amounts have not otherwise been recovered by the Servicer), (B) amounts incurred in maintaining any insurance described in Section 3.07 and (C) amounts which the Servicer has determined to be Nonrecoverable Advances;

(v)                To pay to itself reinvestment earnings deposited or earned in the Investment Account and the Certificate Account to which it is entitled and to reimburse itself for expenses incurred by and reimbursable to it pursuant to Section 6.03;

(vi)              To deposit to the Investment Account amounts in the Certificate Account not required to be on deposit therein at the time of such withdrawal;

(vii)             To deposit in the Certificate Account, not later than the Business Day prior to the related Distribution Date, the amounts in the Investment Account specified in Section 3.04(a);

(viii)           To pay on behalf of the Trustee any Special Primary Insurance Premium payable by the Trustee pursuant to Section 4.05(a); provided, the Servicer shall give written notice thereof to the Trustee prior to noon New York City time two Business Days prior to the applicable Distribution Date; and

after making or providing for the above withdrawals

(ix)              To clear and terminate the Investment Account and the Certificate Account following termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.01.

Since, in connection with withdrawals pursuant to paragraphs (i) and (ii), the Servicer’s entitlement thereto is limited to collections or other recoveries on the related Mortgage Loan, the Servicer shall keep and maintain, separate accounting for each Mortgage Loan, for the purpose of justifying any such withdrawals.

(b)        The Servicer is authorized to make withdrawals, from time to time, of Buydown Funds from the Buydown Fund Account or Custodial Account for P&I (and, to the extent applicable, to make deposits of the amounts withdrawn), as follows:

(i)         To deposit each month in the Investment Account the amount necessary to supplement payments received on Buydown Loans;

(ii)        In the event of a Payoff of any Mortgage Loan having a related Buydown Fund, to apply amounts remaining in Buydown Fund Accounts to reduce the required amount of such principal Payoff (or, if the Mortgagor has made a Payoff, to refund such remaining Buydown Fund amounts to the Person entitled thereto);

(iii)       In the event of foreclosure or liquidation of any Mortgage Loan having a Buydown Fund, to deposit remaining Buydown Fund amounts in the Investment Account as Liquidation Proceeds; and

(iv)       To clear and terminate the portion of any account representing Buydown Funds following termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.01;

(c)        The Trustee is authorized to make withdrawals from time to time from the Certificate Account to reimburse itself for advances it has made as successor Servicer pursuant to Section 7.01(a) hereof that it has determined to be Nonrecoverable Advances.

Section 3.06.        Maintenance of Primary Insurance Policies; Collections Thereunder. The Servicer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to keep in full force and effect each Primary Insurance Policy (except any Special Primary Insurance Policy) required with respect to a Mortgage Loan until no longer required, and the Servicer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to keep in full force and effect each Special Primary Insurance Policy, if any. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer shall have no obligation to maintain any Primary Insurance Policy for a Mortgage Loan for which the outstanding Principal Balance thereof at any time subsequent to origination was 80% or less of the Appraised Value of the related Mortgaged Property, unless required by applicable law.

Unless required by applicable law, the Servicer shall not cancel or refuse to renew any Primary Insurance Policy in effect at the date of the initial issuance of the Certificates that is required to be kept in force hereunder; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not advance funds for the payment of any premium due under (i) any Primary Insurance Policy (other than a Special Primary Insurance Policy) if it shall determine that such an advance would be a Nonrecoverable Advance or (ii) any Special Primary Insurance Policy.

Section 3.07.        Maintenance of Hazard Insurance. The Servicer shall cause to be maintained for each Mortgage Loan (other than a Cooperative Loan) fire insurance with extended coverage in an amount which is not less than the original principal balance of such Mortgage Loan, except in cases approved by the Servicer in which such amount exceeds the value of the improvements to the Mortgaged Property. The Servicer shall also require fire insurance with extended coverage in a comparable amount on property acquired upon foreclosure, or deed in lieu of foreclosure, of any Mortgage Loan (other than a Cooperative Loan). Any amounts collected under any such policies (other than amounts to be applied to the restoration or repair of the related Mortgaged Property) shall be deposited into the Custodial Account for P&I, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 3.03 and Section 3.05. Any unreimbursed costs incurred in maintaining any insurance described in this Section 3.07 shall be recoverable as an advance by the Servicer from the Custodial Account for P&I, the Investment Account or the Certificate Account. Such insurance shall be with insurers approved by the Servicer or Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Other additional insurance may be required of a Mortgagor, in addition to that required pursuant to such applicable laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force and as shall require such additional insurance. Where any part of any improvement to the Mortgaged Property (other than a Mortgaged Property secured by a Cooperative Loan) is located in a federally designated special flood hazard area and in a community which participates in the National Flood Insurance Program at the time of origination of the related Mortgage Loan, the Servicer shall cause flood insurance to be provided. The hazard insurance coverage required by this Section 3.07 may be met with blanket policies providing protection equivalent to individual policies otherwise required.  The Servicer shall be responsible for paying any deductible amount on any such blanket policy.  The Servicer agrees to present, or cause to be presented, on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trust, claims under the hazard insurance policy respecting any Mortgage Loan, and in this regard to take such reasonable actions as shall be necessary to permit recovery under such policy.

Section 3.08.        Enforcement of Due-on-Sale Clauses; Assumption Agreements. When any Mortgaged Property is about to be conveyed by the Mortgagor, the Servicer shall, to the extent it has knowledge of such prospective conveyance and prior to the time of the consummation of such conveyance, exercise on behalf of the Trust the Trust’s rights to accelerate the maturity of such Mortgage Loan, to the extent that such acceleration is permitted by the terms of the related Mortgage Note, under any “due-on-sale” clause applicable thereto; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not exercise any such right if the due-on-sale clause, in the reasonable belief of the Servicer, is not enforceable under applicable law or if such exercise would result in non-coverage of any resulting loss that would otherwise be covered under any insurance policy. In the event the Servicer is prohibited from exercising such right, the Servicer is authorized to take or enter into an assumption and modification agreement from or with the Person to whom a Mortgaged Property has been or is about to be conveyed, pursuant to which such Person becomes liable under the Mortgage Note and, unless prohibited by applicable state law or unless the Mortgage Note contains a provision allowing a qualified borrower to assume the Mortgage Note, the Mortgagor remains liable thereon; provided that the Mortgage Loan shall continue to be covered (if so covered before the Servicer enters such agreement) by any related Primary Insurance Policy. The Servicer is also authorized to enter into a substitution of liability agreement with such Person, pursuant to which the original Mortgagor is released from liability and such Person is substituted as Mortgagor and becomes liable under the Mortgage Note.  The Servicer shall not enter into any substitution or assumption with respect to a Mortgage Loan if such substitution or assumption shall (i) both constitute a “significant modification” effecting an exchange or reissuance of such Mortgage Loan under the Code (or Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder) and cause the REMICs to fail to qualify as a REMIC under the REMIC Provisions or (ii) cause the imposition of any tax on “prohibited transactions” or “contributions” after the startup day under the REMIC Provisions.  The Servicer shall notify the Trustee that any such substitution or assumption agreement has been completed by forwarding to the Trustee the original copy of such substitution or assumption agreement and other documents and instruments constituting a part thereof. In connection with any such assumption or substitution agreement, the terms of the related Mortgage Note shall not be changed. Any fee collected by the Servicer for entering into an assumption or substitution of liability agreement shall be retained by the Servicer as additional servicing compensation.

Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph or any other provision of this Agreement, the Servicer shall not be deemed to be in default, breach or otherwise in violation of any of its obligations hereunder by reason of any assumption of a Mortgage Loan by operation of law or any assumption which the Servicer may be restricted by law from preventing, for any reason whatsoever.

Section 3.09.        Realization Upon Defaulted Mortgage Loans. The Servicer shall foreclose upon or otherwise comparably convert, or cause to be foreclosed upon or comparably converted, the ownership of any Mortgaged Property securing a Mortgage Loan which comes into and continues in default and as to which no satisfactory arrangements can be made for collection of delinquent payments pursuant to Section 3.01. In lieu of such foreclosure or other conversion, and taking into consideration the desirability of maximizing net Liquidation Proceeds after taking into account the effect of Insurance Proceeds upon Liquidation Proceeds, the Servicer may, to the extent consistent with prudent mortgage loan servicing practices, accept a payment of less than the outstanding Principal Balance of a delinquent Mortgage Loan in full satisfaction of the indebtedness evidenced by the related Mortgage Note and release the lien of the related Mortgage upon receipt of such payment. The Servicer shall not foreclose upon or otherwise comparably convert a Mortgaged Property if the Servicer is aware of evidence of toxic waste, other hazardous substances or other evidence of environmental contamination thereon and the Servicer determines that it would be imprudent to do so. In connection with such foreclosure or other conversion, the Servicer shall cause to be followed such practices and procedures as it shall deem necessary or advisable and as shall be normal and usual in general mortgage servicing activities. The foregoing is subject to the provision that, in the case of damage to a Mortgaged Property from an Uninsured Cause, the Servicer shall not be required to advance its own funds towards the restoration of the property unless it shall be determined in the sole judgment of the Servicer, (i) that such restoration will increase the proceeds of liquidation of the Mortgage Loan to Certificateholders after reimbursement to itself for such expenses, and (ii) that such expenses will be recoverable to it through Liquidation Proceeds. The Servicer shall be responsible for all other costs and expenses incurred by it in any such proceedings; provided, however, that it shall be entitled to reimbursement thereof (as well as its normal servicing compensation) as an advance. The Servicer shall maintain information required for tax reporting purposes regarding any Mortgaged Property which is abandoned or which has been foreclosed or otherwise comparably converted. The Servicer shall report such information to the Internal Revenue Service and the Mortgagor in the manner required by applicable law.

The Servicer may enter into one or more special servicing agreements with a Lowest Class B Owner, subject to each Rating Agency's acknowledgment that the Ratings of the Certificates in effect immediately prior to the entering into of such agreement would not be qualified, downgraded or withdrawn and the Certificates would not be placed on credit review status (except for possible upgrading) as a result of such agreement.  Any such agreement may contain provisions whereby such Lowest Class B Owner may (a) instruct the Servicer to commence or delay foreclosure proceedings with respect to related delinquent Mortgage Loans, provided that the Lowest Class B Owner deposits a specified amount of cash with the Servicer that will be available for distribution to Certificateholders if Liquidation Proceeds are less than they otherwise may have been had the Servicer acted pursuant to its normal servicing procedures, (b) purchase such delinquent Mortgage Loans from the Trust immediately prior to the commencement of foreclosure proceedings at a price equal to the aggregate outstanding Principal Balance of such Mortgage Loans plus accrued interest thereon at the applicable Mortgage Interest Rate through the last day of the month in which such Mortgage Loans are purchased and/or (c) assume all of the servicing rights and obligations with respect to such delinquent Mortgage Loans so long as (i) the Servicer has the right to transfer the servicing rights and obligations of such Mortgage Loans to another servicer and (ii) such Lowest Class B Owner will service such Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

REMIC I shall not acquire any real property (or personal property incident to such real property) except in connection with a default or imminent default of a Mortgage Loan. In the event that REMIC I acquires any real property (or personal property incident to such real property) in connection with a default or imminent default of a Mortgage Loan, such property shall be disposed of by the Servicer as soon as practicable in a manner that, consistent with prudent mortgage loan servicing practices, maximizes the net present value of the recovery to the Trust, but in any event within three years after its acquisition by the Servicer for REMIC I unless the Servicer provides to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that the holding by REMIC I of such Mortgaged Property subsequent to three years after its acquisition will not result in the imposition of taxes on “prohibited transactions” of REMIC I as defined in Section 860F of the Code or under the law of any state in which real property securing a Mortgage Loan owned by REMIC I is located or cause REMIC I to fail to qualify as a REMIC for federal income tax purposes or for state tax purposes under the laws of any state in which real property securing a Mortgage Loan owned by REMIC I is located at any time that any Certificates are outstanding. The Servicer shall conserve, protect and operate each such property for the Certificateholders solely for the purpose of its prompt disposition and sale in a manner which does not cause such property to fail to qualify as “foreclosure property” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) or result in the receipt by the REMIC of any “income from non-permitted assets” within the meaning of Section 860F(a)(2)(B) of the Code or any “net income from foreclosure property” which is subject to taxation under the REMIC Provisions. Pursuant to its efforts to sell such property, the Servicer shall either itself or through an agent selected by the Servicer protect and conserve such property in the same manner and to such extent as is customary in the locality where such property is located and may, incident to its conservation and protection of the assets of the Trust, rent the same, or any part thereof, as the Servicer deems to be in the best interest of the Servicer and the Trust for the period prior to the sale of such property. Additionally, the Servicer shall perform the tax withholding and shall file information returns with respect to the receipt of mortgage interests received in a trade or business, the reports of foreclosures and abandonments of any Mortgaged Property and the information returns relating to cancellation of indebtedness income with respect to any Mortgaged Property required by Sections 6050H, 6050J and 6050P, respectively, of the Code, and deliver to the Trustee an Officers’ Certificate on or before March 31 of each year stating that such reports have been filed.  Such reports shall be in form and substance sufficient to meet the reporting requirements imposed by Sections 6050H, 6050J and 6050P of the Code.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Servicer and the Trustee, as applicable, shall comply with all federal withholding requirements with respect to payments to Certificateholders of interest or original issue discount that the Servicer or the Trustee reasonably believes are applicable under the Code.  The consent of Certificateholders shall not be required for any such withholding.  Without limiting the foregoing, the Servicer agrees that it will not withhold with respect to payments of interest or original issue discount in the case of a Certificateholder that has furnished or caused to be furnished an effective Form W-8 or an acceptable substitute form or a successor form and who is not a “10 percent shareholder” within the meaning of Code Section 871(h)(3)(B) or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Code Section 881(c)(3)(C) with respect to REMIC I, REMIC II, REMIC III or the  depositor.  In the event the Trustee withholds any amount from interest or original issue discount payments or advances thereof to any Certificateholder pursuant to federal withholding requirements, the Trustee shall indicate the amount withheld to such Certificateholder.

Section 3.10.        Trustee to Cooperate; Release of Mortgage Files. Upon the Payoff or scheduled maturity of any Mortgage Loan, the Servicer shall cause such final payment to be deposited within 48 hours in the related Custodial Account for P&I or the Investment Account.  The Servicer shall promptly notify the Trustee thereof by a certification (which certification shall include a statement to the effect that all amounts received in connection with such payment which are required to be deposited in either such account have been so deposited) of a Servicing Officer and shall request delivery to it of the Mortgage File; provided, however, that such certification shall not be required if the Mortgage File is held by a Custodian which is also the Servicer of the Mortgage Loan. Upon receipt of such certification and request, the Trustee shall, not later than the fifth succeeding Business Day, release, or cause to be released, the related Mortgage File to the Servicer. With any such Payoff or other final payment, the Servicer is authorized (i) to prepare for and procure from the trustee or mortgagee under the Mortgage which secured the Mortgage Note a deed of full reconveyance or other form of satisfaction or assignment of Mortgage and endorsement of Mortgage Note in connection with a refinancing covering the Mortgaged Property, which satisfaction, endorsed Mortgage Note or assigning document shall be delivered by the Servicer to the person or persons entitled thereto, and (ii) with respect to any MERS Loan, to cause the removal of such Mortgage Loan from registration on the MERS® System. No expenses incurred in connection with such satisfaction or assignment shall be payable to the Servicer by the Trustee or from the Certificate Account, the related Investment Account or the related Custodial Account for P&I. From time to time as appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of any Mortgage Loan, including, for this purpose, collection under any Primary Insurance Policy, the Trustee shall, upon request of the Servicer and delivery to it of a trust receipt signed by a Servicing Officer, release not later than the fifth Business Day following the date of receipt of such request and trust receipt the related Mortgage File to the Servicer and shall execute such documents as shall be necessary to the prosecution of any such proceedings. Such trust receipt shall obligate the Servicer to return the Mortgage File to the Trustee when the need therefor by the Servicer no longer exists, unless the Mortgage Loan shall be liquidated, in which case, upon receipt of a certificate of a Servicing Officer similar to that herein above specified, the trust receipt shall be released by the Trustee to the Servicer.

Section 3.11.        Compensation to the Servicer. As compensation for its activities hereunder, the Servicer shall be entitled to receive from the accounts listed in Section 3.05(a) the amounts provided for by Section 3.05(a)(iii). The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its activities hereunder and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor, except as specifically provided herein.

Section 3.12.        Reports to the Trustee; Certificate Account Statement. Not later than 15 days after each Distribution Date, the Servicer shall forward a statement, certified by a Servicing Officer, to the Trustee setting forth the status of the Certificate Account as of the close of business on such Distribution Date and showing, for the period covered by such statement, the aggregate of deposits into and withdrawals from the Certificate Account for each category of deposit specified in Section 3.04 and each category of withdrawal specified in Section 3.05, and stating that all distributions required by this Agreement have been made (or if any required distribution has not been made, specifying the nature and amount thereof).  The Trustee shall make available such statements to any Certificateholder upon request at the expense of the Servicer.  Such statement shall also, to the extent available, include information regarding delinquencies on the Mortgage Loans, indicating the number and aggregate Principal Balance of Mortgage Loans which are one, two, three or more months delinquent, the number and aggregate Principal Balance of Mortgage Loans with respect to which foreclosure proceedings have been initiated and the book value of any Mortgaged Property acquired by the Trust through foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure or other exercise of the Trust’s security interest in the Mortgaged Property.

Section 3.13.        Annual Statement as to Compliance. The Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee, on or before April 30 of each year, beginning with the first April 30 succeeding the Cut-Off Date by at least six months, an Officer’s Certificate stating as to the signer thereof, that (i) a review of the activities of the Servicer during the preceding calendar year and performance under this Agreement has been made under such officer’s supervision, and (ii) to the best of such officer’s knowledge, based on such review, the Servicer has fulfilled all 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. Copies of such statement shall be provided by the Servicer to Certificateholders upon request or by the Trustee (solely to the extent that such copies are available to the Trustee) at the expense of the Servicer, should the Servicer fail to so provide such copies.

Section 3.14.        Access to Certain Documentation and Information Regarding the Mortgage Loans. In the event that the Certificates are legal for investment by federally-insured savings associations, the Servicer shall provide to the OTS, the FDIC and the supervisory agents and examiners of the OTS and the FDIC access to the documentation regarding the related Mortgage Loans required by applicable regulations of the OTS or the FDIC, as applicable, and shall in any event provide such access to the documentation regarding such Mortgage Loans to the Trustee and its representatives, such access being afforded without charge, but only upon reasonable request and during normal business hours at the offices of the Servicer designated by it.

Section 3.15.        Annual Independent Public Accountants’ Servicing Report. On or before April 30 of each year, beginning with the first April 30 succeeding the Cut-Off Date by at least six months, the Servicer, at its expense, shall furnish to the Trustee a copy of a report delivered to the Servicer by a firm of independent public accountants (who may also render other services to the Servicer or any affiliate thereof) to the effect that, on the basis of an examination conducted by such firm in accordance with standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Servicer has complied with certain minimum residential mortgage loan servicing standards in its role as Servicer with respect to the servicing of residential mortgage loans (including the Mortgage Loans) during the most recently completed fiscal year.  In rendering its report such firm may rely, (a) as to matters relating to the Certificates, upon a statistical sampling of series of mortgage-backed certificates which may include the Certificates and (b) as to matters relating to the direct servicing of residential mortgage loans by subservicers, upon comparable reports of firms of independent certified public accountants rendered on the basis of examinations conducted in accordance with the same standards (rendered within one year of such report) with respect to those subservicers.

Section 3.16.        Yield Maintenance Account. On or prior to the Closing Date, the Trustee shall cause to be established and maintained the Yield Maintenance Account, into which amounts received by the Trustee from the Cap Counterparty pursuant to the Yield Maintenance Agreements shall be deposited for the benefit of the Class A Certificates.  On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall withdraw from the Yield Maintenance Account to the extent funds are available therein and in accordance with the statement received from the Servicer pursuant to Section 4.02(b), the Yield Maintenance Payment Amounts for the related Class A Certificates for such Distribution Date, and deposit such amounts in the Certificate Account for payment to the related Class A Certificates pursuant to Section 4.05(a).

Amounts on deposit in the Yield Maintenance Account shall not be invested and shall not be held in an interest-bearing account.

The Trustee shall withdraw from the Yield Maintenance Account and pay to itself any amounts remaining in the Yield Maintenance Account after the Final Yield Maintenance Payment Date.

To the extent that it constitutes a “reserve fund” for purposes of the REMIC Provisions, the Yield Maintenance Account established hereunder shall be an “outside reserve fund” as defined in Treasury Regulation 1.860G-2(h), and in that regard (i) such fund shall be an outside reserve fund and not an asset of any REMIC, (ii) such fund shall be owned for federal tax purposes by the Trustee, and the Trustee shall report all amounts of income, deduction, gain or loss accruing therefrom, and (iii) amounts transferred by the REMIC to the fund shall be treated as distributed by the REMIC to the Trustee. 

Section 3.17.        [Reserved.]

Section 3.18.        [Reserved.]

Section 3.19.        Determination of LIBOR by Servicer.  

(a)        With respect to each Distribution Date, the Servicer will determine LIBOR on the related LIBOR Determination Date on the basis of the “Interest Settlement Rate” for United States dollar deposits of one-month maturity set by the British Bankers’ Association (the “BBA”) as of 11:00 a.m. (London time) on such LIBOR Determination Date as found on any of the Moneyline Telerate Service (formerly the Dow Jones Markets) page 3750, the Reuters Monitor Money Rates Service page “LIBOR01” or the Bloomberg L.P. page “BBAM” (each such page, or such other page as may replace any of the foregoing on such service or such other service as may be nominated by the BBA as the information vendor for the purpose of displaying the BBA’s Interest Settlement Rates for deposits in United States dollars, each, a “Designated Telerate Page”).

(b)        If on any LIBOR Determination Date, such Interest Settlement Rates are not available from any Designated Telerate Page, LIBOR for the related accrual period will be the most recently published Interest Settlement Rate.  In the event that the BBA no longer sets an Interest Settlement Rate, the Servicer shall calculate LIBOR for the immediately following accrual period as follows:  the Servicer will determine LIBOR by reference to the quotations offered by the principal London office of each of the designated Reference Banks meeting the criteria set forth below for making one-month United States dollar deposits in leading banks in the London Interbank market, as of 11:00 a.m. (London time) on the LIBOR Determination Date.  Under this method LIBOR will be established by the Servicer on each LIBOR Determination Date as follows:

(i)         If on any LIBOR Determination Date two or more Reference Banks provide offered quotations, LIBOR for the next interest accrual period shall be the arithmetic mean of the offered quotations, carrying the result (expressed as a percentage) out to six decimal places, and rounding to five decimal places.

(ii)        If on any LIBOR Determination Date only one or none of the Reference Banks provides offered quotations, LIBOR for the next interest accrual period shall be the greater of:

·        LIBOR as determined on the previous LIBOR Determination Date or

·        the Reserve Interest Rate.

The “Reserve Interest Rate” shall be the rate per annum that the Servicer determines to be either:

·        the arithmetic mean, (expressed as a percentage) carried out to six decimal places, and rounded to five decimal places, of the one-month United States dollar lending rates that New York City banks selected by the Servicer are quoting, on the relevant LIBOR Determination Date, to the principal London offices of at least two of the Reference Banks to which the quotations are, in the opinion of the Servicer, being so made, or

·        if the Servicer cannot determine the arithmetic mean, the lowest one-month United States dollar lending rate which New York City banks selected by the Servicer are quoting on the LIBOR Determination Date to leading European banks.

(iii)       If on any LIBOR Determination Date the Servicer is required but is unable to determine the Reserve Interest Rate in the manner provided in paragraph (ii) above, LIBOR for the next interest accrual period shall be LIBOR as determined on the preceding LIBOR Determination Date, or, in the case of the first LIBOR Determination Date, LIBOR shall be considered to be the per annum rate specified in the Prospectus Supplement, if so specified.

Each Reference Bank (i) will be a leading bank engaged in transactions in Eurodollar deposits in the international Eurocurrency market, (ii) will not control, be controlled by, or be under common control with, the Servicer and (iii) will have an established place of business in London.  If any Reference Bank should be unwilling or unable to act as such or if the Servicer should terminate the designation of any such reference bank, the Servicer will promptly designate another leading bank meeting the criteria specified above.  If on any such LIBOR Determination Date, the Servicer calculates LIBOR on the basis of the provisions of this Section 3.19(b), the Servicer shall designate the Reference Banks. 

(c)        The establishment of LIBOR on each LIBOR Determination Date by the Servicer for the related accrual period will, in the absence of manifest error, be final and binding.

Section 4.01.        Distributions to Holders of REMIC I Regular Interests and Class R-1 Residual Interest.  On each Distribution Date, the Trustee (or any duly appointed paying agent) (i) shall be deemed to have distributed from the Certificate Account the REMIC I Distribution Amount to the Holders of the REMIC I Regular Interests, and to have deposited such amounts for their benefit into the Certificate Account and (ii) from the Certificate Account shall distribute to the Class R Certificateholders, in accordance with the written statement received from the Servicer pursuant to Section 4.02(b), the sum of (a) the Excess Liquidation Proceeds and (b) the amounts to be distributed to the Holders of the Class R-1 Residual Interest pursuant to the definition of “REMIC I Distribution Amount” for such Distribution Date.  Amounts distributed pursuant to clause (ii) above shall be distributed by wire transfer in immediately available funds for the account of each Class R Certificateholder, or by any other means of payment acceptable to each Class R Certificateholder of record on the immediately preceding Record Date (other than as provided in Section 9.01 respecting the final distribution), as specified by each such Certificateholder and at the address of such Holder appearing in the Certificate Register.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no actual distributions pursuant to clause (i) of this Section 4.01 shall be made on account of the deemed distributions described in this paragraph except in the event of a liquidation of REMIC II or REMIC III and not REMIC I.

Section 4.02.        Monthly P&I Advances; Distribution Reports to the Trustee.

(a)        To the extent described below, the Servicer is obligated to advance its own funds to the Custodial Account for P&I, or apply funds held in the Custodial Account for P&I for future distribution, to cover any shortfall between (i) Minimum Monthly Payments scheduled to be received in respect of Mortgage Loans and (ii) the amounts actually received.  The Servicer’s obligation to make any advance or advances described in this Section 4.02 is effective only to the extent that such advance is, in the good faith judgment of the Servicer made not later than the second Business Day prior to each Distribution Date, reimbursable from Insurance Proceeds or Liquidation Proceeds of the related Mortgage Loans or recoverable as late Minimum Monthly Payments with respect to the related Mortgage Loans or otherwise.

Prior to the close of business on the second Business Day prior to each Distribution Date, the Servicer shall determine whether or not it will make a Monthly P&I Advance not later than the second Business Day prior to such Distribution Date and shall furnish a written statement to the Trustee, the Paying Agent, if any, and to any Certificateholder requesting the same, setting forth the aggregate amount to be advanced on account of principal and interest in respect of the Mortgage Loans, stated separately.

In the event that the Servicer shall be required to make a Monthly P&I Advance, it shall not later than the second Business Day prior to the related Distribution Date either (i) deposit in the Custodial Account for P&I an amount equal to such Monthly P&I Advance, (ii) make an appropriate entry in the records of the Custodial Account for P&I that funds in such account being held for future distribution or withdrawal have been, as permitted by this Section 4.02, used by the Servicer to make such Monthly P&I Advance or (iii) make advances in the form of any combination of (i) and (ii) aggregating the amount of such Monthly P&I Advance.  Any funds being held for future distribution and so used shall be replaced by the Servicer by deposit in the Custodial Account for P&I not later than the second Business Day prior to any future Distribution Date to the extent that funds otherwise available for distribution on such Distribution Date with respect to the Mortgage Loans shall be less than payments required to be made hereunder on such Distribution Date.

(b)        Prior to noon New York City time two Business Days prior to each Distribution Date, the Servicer shall provide (x) the Trustee and (y) the Company with a statement in writing of (1) the amount, as applicable, of (i) interest, (ii) the interest portion, if any, of Realized Losses, (iii) Uncompensated Interest Shortfall, (iv) scheduled principal, (v) Net Negative Amortization Amounts, (vi) Principal Prepayments, (vii) Liquidation Principal, (viii) Subsequent Recoveries, (ix) the principal portion of Realized Losses (after giving effect to any reduction thereof by application of any Cumulative Carry-Forward Subsequent Recoveries Amount), (x) the Residual Distribution Amount and (xi) the Excess Liquidation Proceeds to be distributed or allocated, as applicable, to each Class of Certificates on such Distribution Date (such amounts to be determined in accordance with the definitions of “REMIC I Distribution Amount”, “REMIC II Distribution Amount” and “REMIC III Distribution Amount,” Section 4.01, Section 4.04 and Section 4.05 hereof and other related definitions set forth in Article I hereof); (2) the applicable Class Principal Balance after giving effect to such distributions and allocations; (3) the Cumulative Carry-Forward Subsequent Recoveries Amount for such Distribution Date; (4) the amount of any Special Primary Insurance Premium payable on such Distribution Date; (5) for each Class of the Class A and Class B Certificates, any portion of the Carryover Shortfall Amount for such Class remaining after distributions on such Distribution Date; and (6) the related Yield Maintenance Payments for the related Class A Certificates for such Distribution Date.

Section 4.03.        Nonrecoverable Advances. Any advance previously made by the Servicer that the Servicer shall determine in its good faith judgment not to be ultimately recoverable from Insurance Proceeds or Liquidation Proceeds or otherwise with respect to such Mortgage Loan or recoverable as late Minimum Monthly Payments with respect to such Mortgage Loan shall be a Nonrecoverable Advance.  The determination by the Servicer that it has made a Nonrecoverable Advance or that any advance would constitute a Nonrecoverable Advance, shall be evidenced by an Officer’s Certificate of the Servicer delivered to the Trustee on the Determination Date and detailing the reasons for such determination.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, any insurance policy relating to the Mortgage Loans, or any other agreement relating to the Mortgage Loans to which the Company or the Servicer is a party, (a) the Servicer shall not be obligated to, and shall not, make any advance that, after reasonable inquiry and in its sole discretion, the Servicer shall determine would be a Nonrecoverable Advance and (b) the Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement for any advance as provided in Section 3.05(a)(i), (ii) and (iv) and Section 3.05(d) of this Agreement.

Section 4.04.        Distributions to Holders of REMIC II Regular Interests and Class R-2 Residual Interest . On each Distribution Date, the Trustee (or any duly appointed paying agent) (i) shall be deemed to have distributed from the Certificate Account the REMIC II Distribution Amount to the Holders of the REMIC II Regular Interests, and to have deposited such amount for their benefit into the Certificate Account and (ii) shall distribute from the Certificate Account to the Class R Certificateholders, in accordance with the written statement received from the Servicer pursuant to Section 4.02(b), the amounts to be distributed to the Holders of the Class R-2 Residual Interest pursuant to the definition of “REMIC II Distribution Amount” for such Distribution Date.  Amounts distributed to the Class R Certificateholders pursuant to clause (ii) above shall be distributed by wire transfer in immediately available funds for the account of each Class R Certificateholder, or by any other means of payment acceptable to each Class R Certificateholder of record on the immediately preceding Record Date (other than as provided in Section 9.01 respecting the final distribution), as specified by each Class R Certificateholder and at the address of such Holder appearing in the Certificate Register.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no actual distributions pursuant to clause (i) of this Section 4.04 shall be made on account of the deemed distributions described in this paragraph except in the event of a liquidation of REMIC III and not REMIC II.

Section 4.05.        Distributions to Certificateholders; Payment of Special Primary Insurance Premiums

(a)        On each Distribution Date, the Trustee (or any duly appointed paying agent) shall (i) subject to Section 3.05(a)(viii), withdraw from the Certificate Account any Special Primary Insurance Premium payable on such Distribution Date and pay such amount to the insurer under the applicable Special Primary Insurance Policy and (ii) withdraw from the Certificate Account the REMIC III Available Distribution Amount for such Distribution Date and distribute, from the amount so withdrawn, to the extent of the REMIC III Available Distribution Amount, the REMIC III Distribution Amount to the Holders of the REMIC III Regular Interests and the Class R-3 Residual Interest. 

Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, on each Distribution Date, the Trustee (or any duly appointed paying agent) shall, from the amount otherwise distributable to the Class X-L Regular Interest on such Distribution Date pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence, distribute, to the extent thereof, to the Holders of each Class of Class A and Class B Certificates, the Carryover Shortfall Payment, if any, for each such Class.  Each Holder of a Class X Certificate is deemed to have accepted the terms for payment of the Carryover Shortfall Payments to the Holders of the Class A and Class B Certificates pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence and the provisions of Section 2.19.  Each Holder of a Class A, Class B or Class X Certificate is deemed, by acceptance of such Certificate, to have accepted the provisions of Section 2.19.

Furthermore, on each Distribution Date from and including September 2005 to and including the Final Yield Maintenance Payment Date, the Trustee shall withdraw from the Certificate Account and distribute to the Holders of the related Class A Certificates, the related Yield Maintenance Payment.

The net distributions to the Certificates pursuant to this Section 4.05(a) shall be made in accordance with the written statement received from the Servicer pursuant to Section 4.02(b).  Any Special Primary Insurance Premiums distributed pursuant to clause (i) above shall be distributed by any method specified in the respective Special Primary Insurance Policy as directed by the related insurer to the Servicer.  Amounts distributed to the Certificateholders pursuant to clause (ii) above shall be distributed by wire transfer in immediately available funds for the account of, or by check mailed to, each such Certificateholder of record on the immediately preceding Record Date (other than as provided in Section 9.01 respecting the final distribution), as specified by each such Certificateholder and at the address of such Holder appearing in the Certificate Register. 

(b)        All reductions in the Certificate Principal Balance of a Certificate effected by distributions of principal and all allocations of Realized Losses made on any Distribution Date shall be binding upon all Holders of such Certificate and of any Certificate issued upon the registration of transfer or exchange therefor or in lieu thereof, whether or not such distribution is noted on such Certificate.  The final distribution of principal of each Certificate (and the final distribution upon the Class R Certificates upon (i) the termination of REMIC I and REMIC II and (ii) the payment, or making provision for payment, of all liabilities of the Trust) shall be payable in the manner provided above only upon presentation and surrender thereof on or after the Distribution Date therefor at the office or agency of the Certificate Registrar specified in the notice delivered pursuant to Section 4.05(c)(ii) and Section 9.01(b).

(c)        Whenever, on the basis of Curtailments, Payoffs and Minimum Monthly Payments on the Mortgage Loans and Insurance Proceeds and Liquidation Proceeds received and expected to be received during the Payoff Period, the Servicer has notified the Trustee in writing by the 15th day of the month that it believes that the entire remaining unpaid Class Principal Balance of any Class of Certificates will become distributable on the next Distribution Date, the Trustee shall, no later than the 18th day of the month of such Distribution Date, mail or cause to be mailed to each Person in whose name a Certificate to be so retired is registered at the close of business on the Record Date and to the Rating Agencies a notice to the effect that:

(i)                  it is expected that funds sufficient to make such final distribution will be available in the Certificate Account on such Distribution Date, and

(ii)                if such funds are available, (A) such final distribution will be payable on such Distribution Date, but only upon presentation and surrender of such Certificate at the office or agency of the Certificate Registrar maintained for such purpose (the address of which shall be set forth in such notice), and (B) no interest shall accrue on such Certificate after such Distribution Date.

Section 4.06.        Statements to Certificateholders. With each distribution from the Certificate Account on a Distribution Date, the Trustee shall send to each Rating Agency and shall make available to each Certificateholder the statement required by Section 4.02(b).  The Trustee may make available such statement and certain other information, including, without limitation, information required to be provided by the Trustee pursuant to Sections 3.12 and 3.13, to Certificateholders through the Trustee’s web site. Such web site is currently located at “https://www.tss.db.com/invr”.  Assistance in using the web site can currently be obtained by calling the Trustee’s investor relations desk at 800-735-7777.

No Certificate shall be entitled to any benefit under this Agreement, or be valid for any purpose, unless there appears on such Certificate a certificate of authentication substantially in the form provided for herein executed by the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent by manual signature, and such certificate upon any Certificate shall be conclusive evidence, and the only evidence, that such Certificate has been duly authenticated and delivered hereunder. All Certificates shall be dated the date of their authentication.

(b)        The following definitions apply for purposes of this Section 5.01: “Disqualified Organization” means any Person which is not a Permitted Transferee, but does not include any “Pass-Through Entity” which owns or holds a Residual Certificate and of which a Disqualified Organization, directly or indirectly, may be a stockholder, partner or beneficiary; “Pass-Through Entity” means any regulated investment company, real estate investment trust, common trust fund, partnership, trust or estate and any organization to which Section 1381 of the Code applies; “Ownership Interest” means, with respect to any Residual Certificate, any ownership or security interest in such Residual Certificate, including any interest in a Residual Certificate as the Holder thereof and any other interest therein whether direct or indirect, legal or beneficial, as owner or as pledgee; “Transfer” means any direct or indirect transfer or sale of, or directly or indirectly transferring or selling any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate; and “Transferee” means any Person who is acquiring by Transfer any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate.

(c)        Restrictions on Transfers of the Residual Certificates to Disqualified Organizations are set forth in this Section 5.01(c).

(i)                  Each Person who has or who acquires any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall be deemed by the acceptance or acquisition of such Ownership Interest to have agreed to be bound by the following provisions and to have irrevocably authorized the Trustee or its designee under clause (iii)(A) below to deliver payments to a Person other than such Person and to negotiate the terms of any mandatory sale under clause (iii)(B) below and to execute all instruments of transfer and to do all other things necessary in connection with any such sale. The rights of each Person acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate are expressly subject to the following provisions:

(A)       Each Person holding or acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall be a Permitted Transferee and shall promptly notify the Trustee of any change or impending change in its status as a Permitted Transferee.

(B)       In connection with any proposed Transfer of any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate to a U.S. Person, the Trustee shall require delivery to it, and shall not register the Transfer of any Residual Certificate until its receipt of (1) an affidavit and agreement (a “Transferee Affidavit and Agreement”) attached hereto as Exhibit J from the proposed Transferee, in form and substance satisfactory to the Company, representing and warranting, among other things, that it is not a Non-U.S. Person, that such transferee is a Permitted Transferee, that it is not acquiring its Ownership Interest in the Residual Certificate that is the subject of the proposed Transfer as a nominee, trustee or agent for any Person who is not a Permitted Transferee, that for so long as it retains its Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate, it will endeavor to remain a Permitted Transferee, and that it has reviewed the provisions of this Section 5.01(c) and agrees to be bound by them, and (2) a certificate, attached hereto as Exhibit I, from the Holder wishing to transfer the Residual Certificate, in form and substance satisfactory to the Company, representing and warranting, among other things, that no purpose of the proposed Transfer is to allow such Holder to impede the assessment or collection of tax.

(C)       Notwithstanding the delivery of a Transferee Affidavit and Agreement by a proposed Transferee under clause (B) above, if the Trustee has actual knowledge that the proposed Transferee is not a Permitted Transferee, no Transfer of an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate to such proposed Transferee shall be effected.

(D)       Each Person holding or acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate agrees by holding or acquiring such Ownership Interest (i) to require a Transferee Affidavit and Agreement from any other Person to whom such Person attempts to transfer its Ownership Interest and to provide a certificate to the Trustee in the form attached hereto as Exhibit J; (ii) to obtain the express written consent of the Company prior to any transfer of such Ownership Interest, which consent may be withheld in the Company’s sole discretion; and (iii) to provide a certificate to the Trustee in the form attached hereto as Exhibit I.

(ii)                The Trustee shall register the Transfer of any Residual Certificate only if it shall have received the Transferee Affidavit and Agreement, a certificate of the Holder requesting such transfer in the form attached hereto as Exhibit J and all of such other documents as shall have been reasonably required by the Trustee as a condition to such registration.

(iii)       (A)       If any “disqualified organization” (as defined in Section 860E(e)(5) of the Code) shall become a holder of a Residual Certificate, then the last preceding Permitted Transferee shall be restored, to the extent permitted by law, to all rights and obligations as Holder thereof retroactive to the date of registration of such Transfer of such Residual Certificate. If any Non-U.S. Person shall become a holder of a Residual Certificate, then the last preceding holder which is a U.S. Person shall be restored, to the extent permitted by law, to all rights and obligations as Holder thereof retroactive to the date of registration of the Transfer to such Non-U.S. Person of such Residual Certificate. If a transfer of a Residual Certificate is disregarded pursuant to the provisions of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860E-1 or Section 1.860G-3, then the last preceding Permitted Transferee shall be restored, to the extent permitted by law, to all rights and obligations as Holder thereof retroactive to the date of registration of such Transfer of such Residual Certificate. Neither the Trust nor the Trustee shall be under any liability to any Person for any registration of Transfer of a Residual Certificate that is in fact not permitted by this Section 5.01(c) or for making any payments due on such Certificate to the holder thereof or for taking any other action with respect to such holder under the provisions of this Agreement.

(B)       If any purported Transferee shall become a Holder of a Residual Certificate in violation of the restrictions in this Section 5.01(c) and to the extent that the retroactive restoration of the rights of the Holder of such Residual Certificate as described in clause (iii)(A) above shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, then the Company shall have the right, without notice to the Holder or any prior Holder of such Residual Certificate, to sell such Residual Certificate to a purchaser selected by the Company on such terms as the Company may choose. Such purported Transferee shall promptly endorse and deliver each Residual Certificate in accordance with the instructions of the Company. Such purchaser may be the Company itself or any affiliate of the Company. The proceeds of such sale, net of the commissions (which may include commissions payable to the Company or its affiliates), expenses and taxes due, if any, shall be remitted by the Company to such purported Transferee. The terms and conditions of any sale under this clause (iii)(B) shall be determined in the sole discretion of the Company, and the Company shall not be liable to any Person having an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate as a result of its exercise of such discretion.

(iv)       The Servicer, on behalf of the Trustee, shall make available, upon written request from the Trustee, all information necessary to compute any tax imposed (A) as a result of the Transfer of an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate to any Person who is not a Permitted Transferee, including the information regarding “excess inclusions” of such Residual Certificates required to be provided to the Internal Revenue Service and certain Persons as described in Treasury Regulation Section 1.860D-1(b)(5), and (B) as a result of any regulated investment company, real estate investment trust, common trust fund, partnership, trust, estate or organizations described in Section 1381 of the Code having as among its record holders at any time any Person who is not a Permitted Transferee. Reasonable compensation for providing such information may be required by the Servicer from such Person.

(v)        The provisions of this Section 5.01 set forth prior to this Section (v) may be modified, added to or eliminated by the Company, the Servicer and the Trustee, provided that there shall have been delivered to the Trustee the following:

(A)       written notification from each of the Rating Agencies to the effect that the modification, addition to or elimination of such provisions will not cause such Rating Agency to downgrade its then-current Ratings of the Certificates; and

(B)       an Opinion of Counsel, in form and substance satisfactory to the Company (as evidenced by a certificate of the Company), to the effect that such modification, addition to or absence of such provisions will not cause REMIC I, REMIC II and REMIC III to cease to qualify as a REMIC and will not create a risk that (1) REMIC I, REMIC II and REMIC III may be subject to an entity-level tax caused by the Transfer of any Residual Certificate to a Person which is not a Permitted Transferee or (2) a Certificateholder or another Person will be subject to a REMIC-related tax caused by the Transfer of a Residual Certificate to a Person which is not a Permitted Transferee.

(vi)       The following legend shall appear on all Residual Certificates:

ANY RESALE, TRANSFER OR OTHER DISPOSITION OF THIS CERTIFICATE MAY BE MADE ONLY IF THE PROPOSED TRANSFEREE PROVIDES A TRANSFER AFFIDAVIT TO THE COMPANY AND THE TRUSTEE THAT (1) SUCH TRANSFEREE IS NOT EITHER (A) THE UNITED STATES, ANY STATE OR POLITICAL SUBDIVISION THEREOF, ANY FOREIGN GOVERNMENT, ANY INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION, OR ANY AGENCY OR INSTRUMENTALITY OF ANY OF THE FOREGOING, (B) ANY ORGANIZATION (OTHER THAN A COOPERATIVE DESCRIBED IN SECTION 521 OF THE CODE) WHICH IS EXEMPT FROM THE TAX IMPOSED BY CHAPTER 1 OF THE CODE UNLESS SUCH ORGANIZATION IS SUBJECT TO THE TAX IMPOSED BY SECTION 511 OF THE CODE, (C) ANY ORGANIZATION DESCRIBED IN SECTION 1381(a)(2)(C) OF THE CODE (ANY SUCH PERSON DESCRIBED IN THE FOREGOING CLAUSES (A), (B), OR (C) BEING HEREINAFTER REFERRED TO AS A “DISQUALIFIED ORGANIZATION”), OR (D) AN AGENT OF A DISQUALIFIED ORGANIZATION AND (2) NO PURPOSE OF SUCH TRANSFER IS TO ENABLE THE TRANSFEROR TO IMPEDE THE ASSESSMENT OR COLLECTION OF TAX. SUCH AFFIDAVIT SHALL INCLUDE CERTAIN REPRESENTATIONS AS TO THE FINANCIAL CONDITION OF THE PROPOSED TRANSFEREE. NOTWITHSTANDING THE REGISTRATION IN THE CERTIFICATE REGISTER OF ANY TRANSFER, SALE OR OTHER DISPOSITION OF THIS CLASS R CERTIFICATE TO A DISQUALIFIED ORGANIZATION OR AN AGENT OF A DISQUALIFIED ORGANIZATION, SUCH REGISTRATION SHALL BE DEEMED TO BE OF NO LEGAL FORCE OR EFFECT WHATSOEVER AND SUCH PERSON SHALL NOT BE DEEMED TO BE A CERTIFICATEHOLDER FOR ANY PURPOSE HEREUNDER, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE RECEIPT OF DISTRIBUTIONS ON THIS CERTIFICATE. EACH HOLDER OF THE CLASS R CERTIFICATE BY ACCEPTANCE OF THIS CERTIFICATE SHALL BE DEEMED TO HAVE CONSENTED TO THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH.

(vii)      The Tax Matters Person for each of REMIC I, REMIC II and REMIC III, while not a Disqualified Organization, shall be the tax matters person for the related REMIC within the meaning of Section 6231(a)(7) of the Code and Treasury Regulation Section 1.860F-4(d).

(d)        In the case of any Junior Subordinate Certificate presented for registration in the name of any Person, the Trustee shall require (i) an officer’s certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit N attached hereto acceptable to and in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee and the Company, which officer’s certificate shall not be an expense of the Trust, the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee, the Servicer or the Company and (ii) only if such officer’s certificate indicates that a Benefit Plan Opinion is delivered in connection therewith, a Benefit Plan Opinion.

In the case of any Residual Certificate presented for registration in the name of any Person, the Trustee shall require (i) a Transferee Affidavit and Agreement which includes the representation set forth in paragraph 19 of the form attached hereto as Exhibit J and (ii) only if the representation set forth in such paragraph 19 indicates that a Benefit Plan Opinion is delivered in connection therewith, a Benefit Plan Opinion.

(e)        No transfer, sale, pledge or other disposition of a Junior Subordinate Certificate shall be made unless such transfer, sale, pledge or other disposition is made in accordance with this Section 5.01(e) or Section 5.01(f).  Each Person who, at any time, acquires any ownership interest in any Junior Subordinate Certificate shall be deemed by the acceptance or acquisition of such ownership interest to have agreed to be bound by the following provisions of this Section 5.01(e) and Section 5.01(f), as applicable.  No transfer of a Junior Subordinate Certificate shall be deemed to be made in accordance with this Section 5.01(e) unless such transfer is made pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act or unless the Trustee is provided with the certificates and an Opinion of Counsel, if required, on which the Trustee may conclusively rely, to the effect that such transfer is exempt from the registration requirements under the Securities Act, as follows:  In the event that a transfer is to be made in reliance upon an exemption from the Securities Act, the Trustee shall require, in order to assure compliance with the Securities Act, that the Certificateholder desiring to effect such transfer certify to the Trustee in writing, in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit F, the facts surrounding the transfer, with such modifications to such Exhibit F as may be appropriate to reflect the actual facts of the proposed transfer, and that the Certificateholder’s proposed transferee certify to the Trustee in writing, in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit G, the facts surrounding the transfer, with such modifications to such Exhibit G as may be appropriate to reflect the actual facts of the proposed transfer. If such certificate of the proposed transferee does not contain substantially the substance of Exhibit G, the Trustee shall require an Opinion of Counsel that such transfer may be made without registration, which Opinion of Counsel shall not be obtained at the expense of the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee, the Trust, the Servicer or the Company. Such Opinion of Counsel shall allow for the forwarding, and the Trustee shall forward, a copy thereof to the Rating Agencies. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Junior Subordinate Certificate may be transferred, sold, pledged or otherwise disposed of in accordance with the requirements set forth in Section 5.01(f).

(f)         To effectuate a Certificate transfer of a Junior Subordinate Certificate in accordance with this Section 5.01(f), the proposed transferee of such Certificate must provide the Trustee and the Company with an investment letter substantially in the form of Exhibit L attached hereto, which investment letter shall not be an expense of the Trust, the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee or the Company, and which investment letter states that, among other things, such transferee (i) is a “qualified institutional buyer” as defined under Rule 144A, acting for its own account or the accounts of other “qualified institutional buyers” as defined under Rule 144A, and (ii) is aware that the proposed transferor intends to rely on the exemption from registration requirements under the Securities Act provided by Rule 144A. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the proposed transferee of such Certificate shall not be required to provide the Trustee or the Company with Annex 1 or Annex 2 to the form of Exhibit L attached hereto if the Company so consents prior to each such transfer. Such transfers shall be deemed to have complied with the requirements of this Section 5.01(f). The Holder of a Certificate desiring to effect such transfer does hereby agree to indemnify the Trust, the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee, the Servicer, the Company, and the Certificate Registrar against any liability that may result if transfer is not made in accordance with this Agreement.

(g)        (1)        In the case of any ERISA Restricted Certificate presented for registration in the name of any Person, the prospective transferee shall be required to provide the Trustee and the Company (A) an officer’s certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit O attached hereto acceptable to and in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee and the Company, which officer’s certificate shall not be an expense of the Trust, the Servicer, the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee, the Servicer or the Company, and (B) only if such officer’s certificate indicates that a Benefit Plan Opinion is delivered in connection therewith, a Benefit Plan Opinion.

(2)        Notwithstanding the foregoing, a certification (and, if applicable, a Benefit Plan Opinion) as described in Section 5.01(g)(1) above will not be required with respect to the transfer of any ERISA Restricted Certificate to a Clearing Agency, or for any subsequent transfer of any interest in a ERISA Restricted Certificate for so long as such Certificate is a Book-Entry Certificate (each such ERISA Restricted Certificate, a “Book-Entry ERISA Restricted Certificate”).  Any transferee of a Book-Entry ERISA Restricted Certificate will be deemed to have represented, by virtue of its acquisition or holding of such Certificate (or interest therein), that either (i) such transferee is not an employee benefit or other plan subject to the prohibited transaction provisions of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code, or any person (including an investment manager, a named fiduciary or a trustee of any such plan) acting, directly or indirectly, on behalf of or purchasing such Certificate with “plan assets” of any such plan (a “Plan Investor”), (ii) such transferee is an insurance company, the source of funds to be used by it to acquire or hold such Certificate is an “insurance company general account” (within the meaning of Department of Labor Prohibited Transaction Class Exemption (“PTCE”) 95-60), and the conditions in Sections I and III of PTCE 95-60 have been satisfied (each entity that satisfies this clause (ii), a “Complying Insurance Company”) or (iii) such Certificate was rated “BBB-” or better (or its equivalent) by at least one of the Rating Agencies at the time of such transferee’s acquisition of such Certificate (or interest therein).

(3)        If any Book-Entry ERISA Restricted Certificate (or any interest therein) is acquired or held in violation of the provisions of Section 5.01(g)(2) above, then the last preceding transferee that either (i) is not a Plan Investor, (ii) is a Complying Insurance Company or (iii) acquired such Certificate at a time when such Certificate was rated “BBB-” or better (or its equivalent) by at least one of the Rating Agencies shall be restored, to the extent permitted by law, to all rights and obligations as Beneficial Holder thereof retroactive to the date of transfer of such Certificate by such preceding transferee.  Neither the Trust nor the Trustee shall be under any liability to any Person for making any payments due on such Certificate to such preceding transferee.

(4)        Any purported Beneficial Holder whose acquisition or holding of any Book-Entry ERISA Restricted Certificate (or interest therein) was effected in violation of the restrictions in this Section 5.01(g) shall indemnify and hold harmless the Company, the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee, the Servicer, the Trust and the Underwriters from and against any and all liabilities, claims, costs or expenses incurred by such parties as a result of such acquisition or holding.

Section 5.02.        Certificates Issuable in Classes; Distributions of Principal and Interest; Authorized Denominations. The aggregate principal amount of the Certificates that may be authenticated and delivered under this Agreement is limited to the aggregate Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-Off Date, as specified in the Preliminary Statement to this Agreement, except for Certificates authenticated and delivered upon registration of transfer of, or in exchange for, or in lieu of, other Certificates pursuant to Section 5.03. Such aggregate principal amount shall be allocated among one or more Classes having designations, types of interests, initial per annum Certificate Interest Rates, initial Class Principal Balances and Final Maturity Dates as specified in the Preliminary Statement to this Agreement. The aggregate Percentage Interest of each Class of Certificates of which the Class Principal Balance equals zero as of the Cut-Off Date that may be authenticated and delivered under this Agreement is limited to 100%. Certificates shall be issued in Authorized Denominations.

Section 5.03.        Registration of Transfer and Exchange of Certificates. The Trustee shall cause to be maintained at one of its offices or at its designated agent, a Certificate Register in which there shall be recorded the name and address of each Certificateholder. Subject to such reasonable rules and regulations as the Trustee may prescribe, the Certificate Register shall be amended from time to time by the Trustee or its agent to reflect notice of any changes received by the Trustee or its agent pursuant to Section 10.06. The Trustee hereby appoints itself as the initial Certificate Registrar.

Upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Certificate to the Trustee at the office of the Trustee’s agent at DTC Transfer Agent Services, 55 Water Street, Jeanette Park Entrance, New York, New York 10041, or at DB Services Tennessee, Inc., 648 Grassmere Park Road, Nashville, TN 37211, Attention: Transfer Department, or such other address or agency as may hereafter be provided to the Servicer in writing by the Trustee, the Trustee shall execute, and the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent shall authenticate and deliver, in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new Certificates of Authorized Denominations. At the option of the Certificateholders, Certificates may be exchanged for other Certificates in Authorized Denominations of like Certificate Principal Balance or Percentage Interest, as applicable, upon surrender of the Certificates to be exchanged at any such office or agency. Whenever any Certificates are so surrendered for exchange, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall execute, and the Trustee, or any Authenticating Agent, shall authenticate and deliver, the Certificates which the Certificateholder making the exchange is entitled to receive. Every Certificate presented or surrendered for transfer shall (if so required by the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent) be duly endorsed by, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent and duly executed by, the Holder thereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing.

A reasonable service charge may be made for any such exchange or transfer of Certificates, and the Trustee may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any exchange or transfer of Certificates.

All Certificates surrendered for exchange or transfer shall be cancelled by the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent.

Section 5.04.        Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost or Stolen Certificates. If (i) any mutilated Certificate is surrendered to the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent, or (ii) the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent receives evidence to their satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Certificate, and there is delivered to the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent such security or indemnity as may be required by them to save each of them and the Trust harmless, then, in the absence of notice to the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent that such Certificate has been acquired by a protected purchaser, the Trustee shall execute and the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent shall authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate, a new Certificate of like Certificate Principal Balance or Percentage Interest as applicable. Upon the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section 5.04, the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent) connected therewith. Any replacement Certificate issued pursuant to this Section 5.04 shall constitute complete and indefeasible evidence of ownership in REMIC II (or with respect to the Class R Certificates, the residual ownership interests in REMIC I and REMIC II) as if originally issued, whether or not the lost or stolen Certificate shall be found at any time.

Section 5.05.        Persons Deemed Owners. The Company, the Servicer, the Trust, the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee and any agent of any of them may treat the Person in whose name any Certificate is registered as the owner of such Certificate for the purpose of receiving distributions pursuant to Section 4.01, Section 4.04 and Section 4.05 and for all other purposes whatsoever, and none of the Company, the Servicer, the Trust, the Trustee, the Delaware Trustee, the Certificate Registrar or any agent thereof shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

Section 5.06.        Temporary Certificates. Upon the initial issuance of the Certificates, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust may execute, and the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent shall authenticate and deliver, temporary Certificates which are printed, lithographed, typewritten or otherwise produced, in any Authorized Denomination, of the tenor of the definitive Certificates in lieu of which they are issued and with such variations in form from the forms of the Certificates set forth as Exhibits A, B and H hereto as the Trustee’s officers executing such Certificates may determine, as evidenced by their execution of the Certificates.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Certificates may remain in the form of temporary Certificates.

If temporary Certificates are issued, the Trustee shall cause definitive Certificates to be prepared within ten Business Days after the Closing Date or as soon as practicable thereafter. After preparation of definitive Certificates, the temporary Certificates shall be exchangeable for definitive Certificates upon surrender of the temporary Certificates at the office or agency of the Trustee to be maintained as provided in Section 5.10 hereof, without charge to the holder. Any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any such exchange shall be borne by the Servicer. Upon surrender for cancellation of any one or more temporary Certificates, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall execute and the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent shall authenticate and deliver in exchange therefor a like principal amount of definitive Certificates of Authorized Denominations. Until so exchanged, the temporary Certificates shall in all respects be entitled to the same benefits under this Agreement as definitive Certificates.

Section 5.07.        Book-Entry for Book-Entry Certificates. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Book-Entry Certificates, upon original issuance, shall be issued in the form of one or more typewritten Certificates of Authorized Denomination representing the Book-Entry Certificates, to be delivered to DTC, the initial Clearing Agency, by, or on behalf of, the Company.  The Book-Entry Certificates shall initially be registered on the Certificate Register in the name of Cede & Co., the nominee of DTC, as the initial Clearing Agency, and no Beneficial Holder shall receive a definitive certificate representing such Beneficial Holder’s interest in any Class of Book-Entry Certificate, except as provided above and in Section 5.09.  Each Book-Entry Certificate shall bear the following legend:

Unless this Certificate is presented by an authorized representative of The Depository Trust Company, a New York corporation (“DTC”), to the Company or its agent for registration of transfer, exchange, or payment, and any Certificate issued is registered in the name of Cede & Co. or such other name as is requested by an authorized representative of DTC (and any payment is made to Cede & Co. or to such other entity as is requested by an authorized representative of DTC), ANY TRANSFER, PLEDGE OR OTHER USE HEREOF FOR VALUE OR OTHERWISE BY OR TO ANY PERSON IS WRONGFUL inasmuch as the registered owner hereof, Cede & Co., has an interest herein.

Unless and until definitive, fully registered Book-Entry Certificates (the “Definitive Certificates”) have been issued to the Beneficial Holders pursuant to Section 5.09:

(a)        the provisions of this Section 5.07 shall be in full force and effect with respect to the Book-Entry Certificates;

(b)        the Servicer and the Trustee may deal with the Clearing Agency for all purposes with respect to the Book-Entry Certificates (including the making of distributions on the Book-Entry Certificates) as the sole Certificateholder;

(c)        to the extent that the provisions of this Section 5.07 conflict with any other provisions of this Agreement, the provisions of this Section 5.07 shall control; and

(d)        the rights of the Beneficial Holders shall be exercised only through the Clearing Agency and the DTC Participants and shall be limited to those established by law and agreements between such Beneficial Holders and the Clearing Agency and/or the DTC Participants. Pursuant to the Depositary Agreement, unless and until Definitive Certificates are issued pursuant to Section 5.09, the initial Clearing Agency will make book-entry transfers among the DTC Participants and receive and transmit distributions of principal and interest on the related Class of Book-Entry Certificates to such DTC Participants.

For purposes of any provision of this Agreement requiring or permitting actions with the consent of, or at the direction of, Holders of Book-Entry Certificates evidencing a specified Percentage Interest, such direction or consent may be given by the Clearing Agency at the direction of Beneficial Holders owning Book-Entry Certificates evidencing the requisite Percentage Interest represented by the Book-Entry Certificates. The Clearing Agency may take conflicting actions with respect to the Book-Entry Certificates to the extent that such actions are taken on behalf of the Beneficial Holders.

Section 5.08.        Notices to Clearing Agency. Whenever notice or other communication to the Certificateholders is required under this Agreement, unless and until Definitive Certificates shall have been issued to the related Certificateholders pursuant to Section 5.09, the Trustee shall give all such notices and communications specified herein to be given to Holders of the Book-Entry Certificates to the Clearing Agency which shall give such notices and communications to the related DTC Participants in accordance with its applicable rules, regulations and procedures.

Section 5.09.        Definitive Certificates. If (a) the Clearing Agency or the Servicer notifies the Trustee in writing that the Clearing Agency is no longer willing or able to discharge properly its responsibilities under the Depositary Agreement with respect to the Book-Entry Certificates and the Trustee or the Servicer is unable to locate a qualified successor, (b) the Servicer, with the consent of the related DTC Participants, advises the Trustee in writing that it elects to terminate the book-entry system with respect to the Book-Entry Certificates through the Clearing Agency or (c) after the occurrence of an Event of Default, Certificateholders holding Book-Entry Certificates evidencing Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 66⅔% of the aggregate Class Principal Balance of such Certificates advise the Trustee and the Clearing Agency through DTC Participants in writing that the continuation of a book-entry system with respect to the Book-Entry Certificates through the Clearing Agency is no longer in the best interests of the Certificateholders with respect to such Certificates, the Trustee shall notify all Certificateholders of Book-Entry Certificates of the occurrence of any such event and of the availability of Definitive Certificates.  Upon surrender to the Trustee of the Book-Entry Certificates by the Clearing Agency, accompanied by registration instructions from the Clearing Agency for registration, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall execute and the Trustee or any Authenticating Agent shall authenticate and deliver the Definitive Certificates.  Neither the Company, the Servicer, the Trust nor the Trustee shall be liable for any delay in delivery of such instructions and may conclusively rely on, and shall be protected in relying on, such instructions.  Upon the issuance of Definitive Certificates for all of the Certificates all references herein to obligations imposed upon or to be performed by the Clearing Agency shall be deemed to be imposed upon and performed by the Trustee, to the extent applicable with respect to such Definitive Certificates, and the Trustee shall recognize the Holders of Definitive Certificates as Certificateholders hereunder.

Section 5.10.        Office for Transfer of Certificates. The Trustee shall maintain in New York, New York an office or agency where Certificates may be surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange. The office of the Trustee’s agent at DTC Transfer Agent Services, 55 Water Street, Jeanette Park Entrance, New York, New York 10041, is initially designated for said purposes.

Section 5.11.        Nature of Certificates. The Certificates shall be personal property giving only the rights specifically set forth therein and in this Agreement.  The Certificates shall have no preemptive or similar rights and when issued and delivered to the Holders against payment of the purchase price therefor will be fully paid and nonassessable by the Trust.  The Holders of the Certificates, in their capacities as such, shall be entitled to the same limitation of personal liability extended to stockholders of private corporations for profit organized under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. THE RECEIPT AND ACCEPTANCE OF A CERTIFICATE OR ANY INTEREST THEREIN BY OR ON BEHALF OF A HOLDER OR ANY BENEFICIAL OWNER, WITHOUT ANY SIGNATURE OR FURTHER MANIFESTATION OF ASSENT, SHALL CONSTITUTE THE UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE BY THE HOLDER AND ALL OTHERS HAVING A BENEFICIAL INTEREST IN SUCH CERTIFICATE OF ALL THE TERMS AND PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND SHALL CONSTITUTE THE AGREEMENT OF THE TRUST, SUCH HOLDER AND SUCH OTHERS THAT THE TERMS AND PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE BINDING, OPERATIVE AND EFFECTIVE AS BETWEEN THE TRUST AND SUCH HOLDER AND SUCH OTHERS.

Section 6.02.        Merger or Consolidation of the Company, or the Servicer. Any Corporation into which either the Company or the Servicer may be merged or consolidated, or any Corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which either the Company or the Servicer shall be a party, or any Corporation succeeding to the business of either the Company or the Servicer, shall be the successor of the Company or the Servicer, as applicable, 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.

Each of the Company, the Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Company or the Servicer, as applicable, may rely in good faith on any document of any kind properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder. Each of the Company, the Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Company or the Servicer, as applicable, shall be indemnified by the Trust and held harmless against any loss, liability or expense incurred in connection with any legal action relating to this Agreement or the Certificates, other than any loss, liability or expense relating to any Mortgage Loan (other than as otherwise permitted in this Agreement) or incurred by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of duties hereunder or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder. Neither the Company nor the Servicer shall be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute or defend any legal action which is not incidental to its duties related to the Mortgage Loans in accordance with this Agreement and which in its opinion may involve it in any expense or liability; provided, however, that each of the Company and the Servicer may in its discretion undertake any such action which it may deem necessary or desirable with respect to the Mortgage Loans, this Agreement, the Certificates or the rights and duties of the parties hereto and the interests of the Certificateholders hereunder. In such event, the legal expenses and costs of such action and any liability resulting therefrom shall be expenses, costs and liabilities of the Trust and the Company and the Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed, as applicable, therefor out of the Certificate Account, as provided by Section 3.05.

Any such determination permitting the resignation of the Company, the Servicer or any successor Servicer shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect delivered to the Trustee. No such resignation shall become effective until the Trustee or a successor Servicer shall have assumed the Servicer's responsibilities and obligations in accordance with Section 7.02 hereof.

If Washington Mutual Bank is no longer acting as Servicer, then the successor Servicer shall give prompt written notice to the Company of any information received by such successor Servicer which affects or relates to an ongoing obligation or right of the Company under this Agreement.

ARTICLE VII

Default
 

Section 7.01.        Events of Default. (a) In case one or more of the following Events of Default by the Servicer or by a successor Servicer shall occur and be continuing, that is to say:

(i)                  Any failure by the Servicer to deposit into the Certificate Account any payment required to be deposited therein by the Servicer under the terms of this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of five Business Days after the date upon which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to the Servicer by the Trustee or to the Servicer and the Trustee by the Holders of Certificates evidencing Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 25% of REMIC III; or

(ii)                Failure on the part of the Servicer duly to observe or perform in any material respect any other of the covenants or agreements on the part of the Servicer contained in the Certificates or in this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of 60 days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to the Servicer by the Trustee, or to the Servicer and the Trustee by the Holders of Certificates evidencing Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 25% of REMIC III; or

(iii)               A decree or order of a court or agency or supervisory authority having jurisdiction in the premises for the appointment of a trustee in bankruptcy, conservator or receiver or liquidator in any bankruptcy, insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings, or for the winding‑up or liquidation of its affairs, shall have been entered against the Servicer and such decree or order shall have remained in force undischarged or unstayed for a period of 60 days; or

(iv)              The Servicer shall consent to the appointment of a trustee in bankruptcy, conservator or receiver or liquidator in any bankruptcy, insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings of or relating to the Servicer or of or relating to all or substantially all of its property; or

(v)                The Servicer shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, file a petition to take advantage of any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization statute, make an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or voluntarily suspend payment of its obligations; or

(vi)              Any failure of the Servicer to make any Monthly P&I Advance (other than a Nonrecoverable Advance) which continues unremedied at the opening of business on the Distribution Date in respect of which such Monthly P&I Advance was to have been made;

then, and in each and every such case, so long as an Event of Default shall not have been remedied, either the Trustee or the Holders of Certificates evidencing Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 25% of REMIC III, by notice in writing to the Company and the Servicer (and to the Trustee if given by the Certificateholders, in which case such notice shall set forth evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee that such Event of Default has occurred and shall not have been remedied) may terminate all of the rights (other than its right to reimbursement for advances) and obligations of the Servicer, including its right to the Servicing Fee, under this Agreement and in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof, if any. Such determination shall be final and binding. On or after the receipt by the Servicer of such written notice, all authority and power of the Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Certificates or the Mortgage Loans or otherwise, shall pass to and be vested in the Trustee pursuant to and under this Section 7.01; and, without limitation, the Trustee is hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of the 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 Servicer agrees to cooperate with the Trustee in effecting the termination of the Servicer's responsibilities and rights hereunder, including, without limitation, the transfer to the Trustee for administration by it of all cash amounts which shall at the time be credited by the Servicer to the Certificate Account or thereafter be received with respect to the Mortgage Loans.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an Event of Default described in clause (vi) of this Section 7.01(a) shall occur, the Trustee shall, by notice in writing to the Servicer, which may be delivered by telecopy, immediately suspend all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer thereafter arising under this Agreement, but without prejudice to any rights it may have as a Certificateholder or to reimbursement of Monthly P&I Advances and other advances of its own funds, and the Trustee shall act as provided in Section 7.02 to carry out the duties of the Servicer, including the obligation to make any Monthly P&I Advance the nonpayment of which was an Event of Default described in clause (vi) of this Section 7.01(a). Any such action taken by the Trustee must be prior to the distribution on the relevant Distribution Date. If the Servicer shall within two Business Days following such suspension remit to the Trustee the amount of any Monthly P&I Advance the nonpayment of which by the Servicer was an Event of Default described in clause (vi) of this Section 7.01(a), the Trustee, subject to the last sentence of this paragraph, shall permit the Servicer to resume its rights and obligations as Servicer hereunder. The Servicer agrees that it will reimburse the Trustee for actual, necessary and reasonable costs incurred by the Trustee because of action taken pursuant to clause (vi) of this Section 7.01(a). The Servicer agrees that if an Event of Default as described in clause (vi) of this Section 7.01(a) shall occur more than two times in any twelve month period, the Trustee shall be under no obligation to permit the Servicer to resume its rights and obligations as Servicer hereunder.

(b)        In case one or more of the following Events of Default by the Company shall occur and be continuing, that is to say:

(i)         Failure on the part of the Company duly to observe or perform in any material respect any of the covenants or agreements on the part of the Company contained in the Certificates or in this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of 60 days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to the Company by the Trustee, or to the Company and the Trustee by the Holders of Certificates evidencing Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 25% of REMIC III; or

(ii)        A decree or order of a court or agency or supervisory authority having jurisdiction in the premises for the appointment of a trustee in bankruptcy, conservator or receiver or liquidator in any bankruptcy, insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings, or for the winding‑up or liquidation of its affairs, shall have been entered against the Company and such decree or order shall have remained in force undischarged or unstayed for a period of 60 days; or

(iii)       The Company shall consent to the appointment of a trustee in bankruptcy, conservator or receiver or liquidator in any bankruptcy, insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings of or relating to the Company or of or relating to all or substantially all of its property; or

(iv)       The Company shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, file a petition to take advantage of any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization statute, make an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or voluntarily suspend payment of its obligations;

then, and in each and every such case, so long as such Event of Default shall not have been remedied, the Holders of Certificates evidencing Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 25% of REMIC III, by notice in writing to the Company and the Trustee, may direct the Trustee in accordance with Section 10.03 to institute an action, suit or proceeding in its own name as Trustee hereunder to enforce the Company's obligations hereunder.

(c)        In any circumstances in which this Agreement states that Certificateholders owning Certificates evidencing a certain Percentage Interest in REMIC III may take certain action, such action shall be taken by the Trustee, but only if the requisite percentage of Certificateholders required under this Agreement for taking like action or giving like instruction to the Trustee under this Agreement shall have so directed the Trustee in writing.

Section 7.02.        Trustee to Act; Appointment of Successor.

(a)        On and after the date on which the Servicer receives a notice of termination pursuant to Section 7.01 or the Servicer resigns pursuant to Section 6.04, the Trustee shall be the successor in all respects to the Servicer under this Agreement with respect to the Mortgage Loans in the Mortgage Pool and with respect to the transactions set forth or provided for herein and shall have all the rights and powers and be subject to all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities relating thereto arising on or after such date of termination or resignation placed on the Servicer by the terms and provisions hereof and thereof, and shall have the same limitations on liability herein granted to the Servicer; provided, that the Trustee shall not under any circumstances be responsible for any representations and warranties or any Purchase Obligation of the Company or any liability incurred by the Servicer prior to such date of termination or resignation and the Trustee shall not be obligated to make a Monthly P&I Advance if it is prohibited by law from so doing. As compensation therefor, the Trustee shall be entitled to all funds relating to the Mortgage Loans which the Servicer would have been entitled to retain or to withdraw from the Certificate Account if the Servicer had continued to act hereunder, except for those amounts due to the Servicer as reimbursement for advances previously made or amounts previously expended and are otherwise reimbursable hereunder. Notwithstanding the above, the Trustee may, if it shall be unwilling to so act, or shall if it is unable to so act, appoint, or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint, any established housing and home finance institution having a net worth of not less than $10,000,000 as the successor to the Servicer hereunder in the assumption of all or any part of the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of the Servicer hereunder. Pending any such appointment, the Trustee is obligated to act in such capacity. In connection with such appointment and assumption, the Trustee may make such arrangements for the compensation of such successor out of payments on Mortgage Loans as it and such successor shall agree; provided, however, that no such compensation shall, together with the compensation to the Trustee, be in excess of that permitted the Servicer hereunder. The Trustee and such successor shall take such actions, consistent with this Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession.

(b)        In connection with any termination or resignation of the Servicer hereunder, in the event that any of the Mortgage Loans are MERS Loans, either (i) the successor Servicer (including the Trustee if the Trustee is acting as successor Servicer) shall represent and warrant that it is a member of MERS in good standing and shall agree to comply in all material respects with the rules and procedures of MERS in connection with the servicing of the MERS Loans, in which case the predecessor Servicer shall cooperate with the successor Servicer in registering the transfer of servicing of the MERS Loans to the successor Servicer on the MERS® System in accordance with MERS’ rules and procedures, or (ii) if the successor Servicer is not a member of MERS, the predecessor Servicer shall cooperate with the successor Servicer in (A) de-registering the MERS Loans from the MERS® System and (B) causing MERS to execute and deliver an assignment from MERS to the Trust of the Mortgage securing each MERS Loan in recordable form and in the form otherwise provided under clause (X)(iii) of the definition of “Mortgage File” herein and to execute and deliver such other notices, documents and other instruments as may be necessary or desirable to effect such de-registration and assignment. The predecessor Servicer shall bear any and all fees of MERS and all fees and costs of preparing and recording any assignments of Mortgages as required under this Section 7.02(b).

Section 7.03.        Notification to Certificateholders. Upon any such termination or appointment of a successor to the Servicer, the Trustee shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Certificateholders at their respective addresses appearing in the Certificate Register.

ARTICLE VIII

Concerning the Trustees
 

Section 8.01.        Duties of Trustees.

(a)        The Trustee, prior to the occurrence of an Event of Default and after the curing of all Events of Default which may have occurred, undertakes to perform such duties and only such duties as are specifically set forth in this Agreement. In case an Event of Default has occurred (which has not been cured or waived) the Trustee shall exercise such of the rights and powers vested in it by this Agreement, and use the same degree of care and skill in its exercise as a prudent person would exercise or use under the circumstances in the conduct of such person’s own affairs.

(b)        The Trustee, upon receipt of all resolutions, certificates, statements, opinions, reports, documents, orders or other instruments furnished to it which are specifically required to be furnished pursuant to any provision of this Agreement, shall examine them to determine whether they are in the form required by this Agreement; provided, however, that the Trustee shall not be responsible for the accuracy or content of any such certificate, statement, opinion, report, or other order or instrument furnished by the Company or Servicer to the Trustee pursuant to this Agreement.

(c)        No provision of this Agreement shall be construed to relieve the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee from liability for its own negligent action, its own negligent failure to act or its own willful misconduct; provided, however, that:

(i)                  Prior to the occurrence of an Event of Default and after the curing of all such Events of Default which may have occurred, the duties and obligations of the Trustee shall be determined solely by the express provisions of this Agreement,

(ii)                Neither the Trustee nor the Delaware Trustee shall be liable except for the performance of such duties and obligations as are specifically set forth in this Agreement, no implied covenants or obligations shall be read into this Agreement against the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, and, in the absence of bad faith on the part of the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, such trustee may conclusively rely, as to the truth of the statements and the correctness of the opinions expressed therein, upon any certificates or opinions furnished to such trustee and conforming to the requirements of this Agreement; and

(iii)               Neither the Trustee nor the Delaware Trustee shall be personally liable with respect to any action taken or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with the direction of the Certificateholders holding Certificates which evidence Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 25% of REMIC III relating to the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to such trustee, or relating to the exercise of any trust or power conferred upon such trustee under this Agreement.

(d)        Within ten Business Days after the occurrence of any Event of Default known to the Trustee, the Trustee shall transmit by mail to the Rating Agencies notice of each Event of Default. Within 90 days after the occurrence of any Event of Default known to the Trustee, the Trustee shall transmit by mail to all Certificateholders (with a copy to the Rating Agencies) notice of each Event of Default, unless such Event of Default shall have been cured or waived; provided, however, the Trustee shall be protected in withholding such notice if and so long as a Responsible Officer of the Trustee in good faith determines that the withholding of such notice is in the best interests of the Certificateholders; and provided, further, that in the case of any Event of Default of the character specified in Section 7.01(i) and Section 7.01(ii) no such notice to Certificateholders or to the Rating Agencies shall be given until at least 30 days after the occurrence thereof.

(e)        The immediately following sentence shall constitute the Trustee's notice required by the U.S.A. Patriot Act.  In order to comply with its duties under the U.S.A. Patriot Act, the Trustee shall obtain and verify certain information and documentation from the other parties to this Agreement including, but not limited to, each such party’s name, address and other identifying information.

Section 8.02.        Certain Matters Affecting the Trustees. Except as otherwise provided in Section 8.01:

(i)         Each of the Trustee and the Delaware Trustee may request and rely upon and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon any resolution, Officer’s Certificate, certificate of auditors or any other certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, consent, order, approval, bond or other paper or document believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties;

(ii)        Each of the Trustee and the Delaware Trustee may consult with counsel and any Opinion of Counsel shall be full and complete authorization and protection in respect of any action taken or suffered or omitted by it hereunder in good faith and in accordance with such Opinion of Counsel;

Section 8.10.        Appointment of Co-Trustee or Separate Trustee. Notwithstanding any other provisions hereof, at any time, for the purpose of meeting any legal requirements of any jurisdiction in which any part of the assets of the Trust may at the time be located, the Servicer and the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable, acting jointly shall have the power and shall execute and deliver all instruments to appoint one or more Persons approved by such trustee to act as co-trustee or co-trustees, jointly with such trustee, or separate trustee or separate trustees, of all or any part of the assets of the Trust and to vest in such Person or Persons, in such capacity, such title to the assets of the Trust, or any part thereof, and, subject to the other provisions of this Section 8.10, such powers, duties, obligations, rights and trusts as the Servicer and the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable, may consider necessary or desirable; provided, that the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable, shall remain liable for all of its obligations and duties under this Agreement. If the Servicer shall not have joined in such appointment within 15 days after the receipt by it of a request so to do, or in case an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable, alone shall have the power to make such appointment; provided, that such trustee shall remain liable for all of its obligations and duties under this Agreement.

In the case of any appointment of a co-trustee or separate trustee pursuant to this Section 8.10, all rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable, shall be conferred or imposed upon and exercised or performed by the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable, and such separate trustee or co-trustee jointly and severally, except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed by the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable (whether as Trustee or Delaware Trustee hereunder or as successor to the Servicer hereunder), such trustee shall be incompetent or unqualified to perform such act or acts, in which event such rights, powers, duties and obligations (including the holding of title to the assets of the Trust or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed by such separate trustee or co-trustee at the direction of the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable.

Any notice, request or other writing given to the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee shall be deemed to have been given to each of the then related separate trustee(s) and co-trustee(s), as effectively as if given to each of them. Every instrument appointing any separate trustee(s) or co-trustee(s) shall refer to this Agreement and the conditions of this Article VIII. Each separate trustee and co-trustee, upon its acceptance of the trusts conferred, shall be vested with the estates or property specified in its instrument of appointment, either jointly with the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable, or separately, as may be provided therein, subject to all the provisions of this Agreement, specifically including every provision of this Agreement relating to the conduct of, affecting the liability of, or affording protection to, the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable. Every such instrument shall be filed with the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable.

If any separate trustee or co-trustee shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and the trust shall vest in and be exercised by the Trustee or the Delaware Trustee, as applicable, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor trustee.

Any Paying Agent may at any time resign by giving written notice of resignation to the Trustee and to the Servicer; provided, that the Paying Agent has returned to the Certificate Account or otherwise accounted, to the reasonable satisfaction of the Servicer, for all amounts it has withdrawn from the Certificate Account. The Trustee may, upon prior written approval of the Servicer, at any time terminate the agency of any Paying Agent by giving written notice of termination to such Paying Agent and to the Servicer.
