to service and administer the Mortgage Loan in accordance with the Servicing Standard as set forth in such Servicing Agreement, and any Holder who is not a Borrower or an Affiliate of a Borrower shall be deemed a third-party beneficiary of such provisions of the Servicing Agreement. It is understood that any Non-Lead Note Holder may separately appoint a servicer for its Non-Lead Note, by itself or together with other assets, but any such servicer will have no responsibility hereunder and shall be compensated solely by the applicable Non-Lead Note Holder from funds payable to it hereunder or otherwise.

 

(e)           The Holders acknowledge that the Servicer is to comply with this Agreement and the Mortgage Loan Documents in connection with the servicing of the Mortgage Loan.

 

(f)            If any Note is included as an asset of a real estate mortgage investment conduit (a “REMIC”), within the meaning of Section 860D(a) of the Code, then, any provision of this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding: (i) the Mortgage Loan shall be administered such that the Notes shall qualify at all times as (or as interests in) a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code, (ii) any real property (and related personal property) acquired by or on behalf of the Holders pursuant to a foreclosure, exercise of a power of sale or delivery of a deed in lieu of foreclosure of the Mortgage or lien on such property following a default on the Mortgage Loan shall be administered so that the interest of the pro rata share of each Holder therein shall at all times qualify as “foreclosure property” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code, and (iii) no Servicer may modify, waive or amend any provision of the Mortgage Loan, consent to or withhold consent from any action of the Borrower, or exercise or refrain from exercising any powers or rights that the Holders may have under the Mortgage Loan Documents, if any such action would constitute a “significant modification” of the Mortgage Loan, within the meaning of Section 1.860G-2(b) of the regulations of the United States Department of the Treasury, more than three (3) months after the startup day of the REMIC that includes any Note (or any portion thereof). Each Holder agrees that the provisions of this paragraph shall be effected by compliance with any REMIC provisions in the Servicing Agreement relating to the administration of the Mortgage Loan.

 

(g)           In the event that one of the Notes is included in a REMIC, the other Holders shall not be required to reimburse such Holder or any other Person for payment of any taxes imposed on such REMIC or Advances therefor or for any interest on such Advance or for deficits in other items of disbursement or income resulting from the use of funds for payment of any such taxes, nor shall any disbursement or payment otherwise distributable to the other Holders be reduced to offset or make-up any such payment or deficit.

 

3.            Priority of Notes. Note A-1 and Note A-2 shall be of equal priority, and no portion of any of Note A-1 or Note A-2 shall have priority or preference over any portion of the other Note or security therefor. Except for the Excluded Amounts, all amounts tendered by the Borrower or otherwise available for payment on the Mortgage Loan, whether received in the form of Monthly Payments, a balloon payment, Liquidation Proceeds, proceeds under any guaranty, letter of credit or other instrument serving as security on the Mortgage Loan, proceeds under title, hazard or other insurance policies or awards or settlements in respect of condemnation proceedings or similar exercise of the power of eminent domain shall be

 

 -13-

 

 

distributed by the Master Servicer and applied to Note A-1 and Note A-2 on a Pro Rata and Pari Passu Basis.

 

The Servicing Agreement may provide for the application of Penalty Charges paid in respect of the Mortgage Loan to be used to (i) pay the Master Servicer, the Trustee or the Special Servicer for interest accrued on any Property Advances, (ii) to pay the parties to any Securitization for interest accrued on any P&I Advance, (iii) to pay certain other expenses incurred with respect to the Mortgage Loan and (iv) to pay to the Master Servicer and/or the Special Servicer as additional servicing compensation.

 

4.          Workout. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, but subject to the terms and conditions of the Servicing Agreement and Section 13 of this Agreement, and the obligation to act in accordance with the Servicing Standard, if the Lead Note Holder, or any Servicer, in connection with a workout or proposed workout of the Mortgage Loan, modifies the terms thereof such that (i) the Mortgage Loan Principal Balance is decreased, (ii) the Mortgage Interest Rate is reduced, (iii) payments of interest or principal on Note A-1 or Note A-2 are waived, reduced or deferred or (iv) any other adjustment is made to any of the payment terms of the Mortgage Loan, such modification shall not alter, and any modification of the Mortgage Loan Documents shall be structured to preserve, the equal priorities of Note A-1 and Note A-2 as described in Section 3.

 

5.          Accounts; Payment Procedure. The Servicing Agreement shall provide that the Master Servicer shall establish and maintain the Collection Account or Collection Accounts, as applicable. Each of the Note A-1 Holder and the Note A-2 Holder hereby directs the Master Servicer, in accordance with the priorities set forth in Section 3 hereof, and subject to the terms of the Servicing Agreement, (i) to deposit into the applicable Collection Account within the time period specified in the Servicing Agreement all payments received with respect to the Mortgage Loan and (ii) to remit from the applicable Collection Account for deposit or credit on the applicable Master Servicer Remittance Date all payments received with respect to and allocable to Note A-1 and Note A-2 by wire transfer to accounts maintained by the Note A-1 Holder and the Note A-2 Holder, respectively; provided that delinquent payments received by the Master Servicer after the related Master Servicer Remittance Date shall be remitted by the Master Servicer to such accounts within the time period specified in the Servicing Agreement.

 

If any Servicer holding or having distributed any amount received or collected in respect of Note A-1 or Note A-2 determines, or a court of competent jurisdiction orders, at any time that any amount received or collected in respect of Note A-1 or Note A-2 must, pursuant to any insolvency, bankruptcy, fraudulent conveyance, preference or similar law, be returned to the Borrower or paid to the Note A-1 Holder, the Note A-2 Holder or any Servicer or paid to any other Person, then, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Servicer shall be required to distribute any portion thereof to the Note A-1 Holder or the Note A-2 Holder, as applicable, and the Note A-1 Holder or the Note A-2 Holder, as applicable, shall promptly on demand repay to such Servicer the portion thereof which shall have been theretofore distributed to the Note A-1 Holder or the Note A-2 Holder, as applicable, together with interest thereon at such rate, if any, as such Servicer shall have been required to pay to the Borrower, the Note A-1 Holder, the Note A-2 Holder, any Servicer or such other person or entity with respect thereto.

 

 -14-

 

 

Each of the Note A-1 Holder and the Note A-2 Holder agrees that if at any time it shall receive from any sources whatsoever any payment on account of the Mortgage Loan in excess of its distributable share thereof, it will promptly remit such excess to the Master Servicer. The Master Servicer shall have the right to offset any amounts due hereunder from the Note A-1 Holder or the Note A-2 Holder, as applicable, with respect to the Mortgage Loan against any future payments due to the Note A-1 Holder or the Note A-2 Holder, as applicable, under the Mortgage Loan, provided, that the obligations of the Note A-1 Holder and the Note A-2 Holder under this Section 5 are separate and distinct obligations from one another and in no event shall any Servicer enforce the obligations of any Holder against any other Holder. The obligations of the Note A-1 Holder and the Note A-2 Holder under this Section 5 constitute absolute, unconditional and continuing obligations and each Servicer shall be deemed a third-party beneficiary of these provisions.

 

6.          Limitation on Liability. Subject to the terms of the Servicing Agreement, no Holder (including the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer on its behalf) shall have any liability to any other Holder with respect to any Note, except (1) with respect to the Advance reimbursement provisions set forth in Section 17 and (2) with respect to losses actually suffered due to the gross negligence, willful misconduct or material breach of this Agreement on the part of such Holder (including the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer on its behalf, except that the Master Servicer’s or Special Servicer’s liability may be further limited or expanded as set forth in the Servicing Agreement).

 

7.          Representations of the Holders. (a) Each of the initial Holders hereby represents and warrants to, and covenants with each other Holder that, as of the date hereof:

 

(i)         It is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State under which it is organized.

 

(ii)        The execution and delivery of this Agreement by such Holder, and performance of, and compliance with, the terms of this Agreement by such Holder, will not violate its organizational documents or constitute a default (or an event which, with notice or lapse of time, or both, would constitute a default) under, or result in the breach of, any material agreement or other instrument to which it is a party or that is applicable to it or any of its assets, in each case which materially and adversely affect its ability to carry out the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

 

(iii)       Such Holder has the full power and authority to enter into and consummate all transactions contemplated by this Agreement, has duly authorized the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and has duly executed and delivered this Agreement.

 

(iv)       This Agreement is the legal, valid and binding obligation of such Holder enforceable against such Holder in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity

 

 -15-

 

 

or at law), and except that the enforcement of rights with respect to indemnification and contribution obligations may be limited by applicable law.

 

(v)        It has the right to enter into this Agreement without the consent of any third party.

 

(vi)       It is the holder of the respective Note for its own account in the ordinary course of its business.

 

(vii)      It has not dealt with any broker, investment banker, agent or other person, that may be entitled to any commission or compensation in connection with the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated hereby.

 

(viii)     It is a Qualified Transferee.

 

8.          Independent Analyses of each Holder. Each Holder acknowledges that, except for the representations made in Section 7, it has, independently and without reliance upon any other Holders and based on such documents and information as such Holder has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to purchase its respective Note. Each Holder hereby acknowledges that the other Holders shall have no responsibility for (i) the collectability of the Mortgage Loan, (ii) the validity, enforceability or legal effect of any of the Mortgage Loan Documents or the title insurance policy or policies or any survey furnished or to be furnished in connection with the origination of the Mortgage Loan, (iii) the validity, sufficiency or effectiveness of the lien created or to be created by the Mortgage Loan Documents, or (iv) the financial condition of the Borrower. Each Holder assumes all risk of loss in connection with its respective Note for reasons other than gross negligence, willful misconduct or breach of this Agreement by any other Holder or gross negligence, willful misconduct or bad faith by any Servicer.

 

9.          No Creation of a Partnership or Exclusive Purchase Right. Nothing contained in this Agreement, and no action taken pursuant hereto, shall be deemed to constitute among any Holder (or the Master Servicer, Special Servicer or Trustee on its behalf) and any other Holder a partnership, association, joint venture or other entity. Each Holder (or the Master Servicer, Special Servicer or Trustee on its behalf) shall have no obligation whatsoever to offer to the other Holders the opportunity to purchase notes or interests relating to any future loans originated by such Holder or any of its Affiliates, and if any Holder chooses to offer to any of the other Holders, the opportunity to purchase notes or interests in any future mortgage loans originated by such Holder or its Affiliates, such offer shall be at such purchase price and interest rate as such Holder chooses, in its sole and absolute discretion. None of the Holders shall have any obligation whatsoever to purchase from any other Holder any notes or interests in any future loans originated by any other Holder or any of its Affiliates.

 

10.        Not a Security. Neither of Note A-1 nor Note A-2 shall be deemed to be a security within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

 

 -16-

 

 

11.          Other Business Activities of the Holders. Each Holder acknowledges that the other Holders may make loans or otherwise extend credit to, and generally engage in any kind of business with, any Affiliate of any Borrower, and receive payments on such other loans or extensions of credit to any Affiliate of any Borrower and otherwise act with respect thereto freely and without accountability, but only if none of the foregoing violate the Mortgage Loan Documents, in the same manner as if this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby were not in effect.

 

12.          Transfer of Notes. (a) Each Holder may Transfer up to 49% of its beneficial interest in its Note whether or not the related transferee is a Qualified Transferee without a Rating Agency Confirmation. Each Holder shall not Transfer more than 49% of its beneficial interest in its Note unless (i) prior to a Securitization of any Note, the other Holder has consented to such Transfer, in which case the related transferee shall thereafter be deemed to be a “Qualified Transferee” for all purposes under this Agreement, (ii) after a Securitization of any Note, a Rating Agency Confirmation has been received with respect to such Transfer, in which case the related transferee shall thereafter be deemed to be a “Qualified Transferee” for all purposes under this Agreement, (iii) such Transfer is to a Qualified Transferee or (iv) such Transfer is in connection with a sale by a Securitization Trust; provided that if such Transfer is a Transfer of the Lead Note, such Transfer is to a Qualified Transferee. Any such transferee must assume in writing the obligations of the transferring Holder hereunder and agree to be bound by the terms and provisions of this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement. Such proposed transferee (except in the case of Transfers that are made in connection with a Securitization) shall also remake each of the representations and warranties contained herein for the benefit of the other Holder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, without the non-transferring Holder’s prior consent (which will not be unreasonably withheld), and, if such non-transferring Holder’s Note is in a Securitization, without a Rating Agency Confirmation from each Rating Agency that has been engaged by the Depositor to rate the securities issued in connection with such Securitization, no Holder shall Transfer all or any portion of its Note to a Borrower or an Affiliate of a Borrower and any such Transfer shall be absolutely null and void and shall vest no rights in the purported transferee. None of the provisions of this Section 12(a) shall apply in the case of a sale of Note A-1 together with Note A-2, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Lead Securitization PSA.

 

(b)          Except for a Transfer made in connection with a Securitization, or a Transfer made by an initial Holder to an Affiliate, at least five (5) days prior to a transfer of any Note, the transferring Holder shall provide to the other Holders and, if any Certificates are outstanding, to the Rating Agencies, a certification that such transfer will be made in accordance with this Section 12, such certification to include (1) the name and contact information of the transferee and (2) if applicable, a certification by the transferee that it is a Qualified Transferee.

 

(c)          The Holders acknowledge that any Rating Agency Confirmation may be granted or denied by the Rating Agencies in their sole and absolute discretion and that such Rating Agencies may charge the transferring Holder customary fees in connection with providing such Rating Agency Confirmation.

 

(d)          Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, each Holder may pledge or transfer (a “Pledge”) its Note to any entity (other than a Borrower or any Affiliate

 

 -17-

 

 

of a Borrower) that has extended a credit facility to such Holder or has entered into a repurchase agreement with such Holder and that, in each case, is either a Qualified Transferee or a financial institution whose long-term unsecured debt is rated at least “A” (or the equivalent) or better by each Rating Agency (a “Note Pledgee”), or to a Person with respect to which a Rating Agency Confirmation has been obtained, on terms and conditions set forth in this Section 12(d), it being further agreed that a financing provided by a Note Pledgee to any Holder or any Affiliate that controls such Holder that is secured by such Holder’s interest in its respective Note and is structured as a repurchase arrangement, shall qualify as a “Pledge” hereunder on the condition that all applicable terms and conditions of this Section 12 are complied with. A Note Pledgee that is not a Qualified Transferee may not take title to a Note without a Rating Agency Confirmation. Upon written notice, if any, by the pledging Holder to the other Holders and the Servicer that a Pledge has been effected (including the name and address of the applicable Note Pledgee), the other Holders agree to acknowledge receipt of such notice and thereafter agree: (i) to give such Note Pledgee written notice of any default by the pledging Holder in respect of its obligations under this Agreement of which default such Holder has actual knowledge and which notice shall be given simultaneously with the giving of such notice to the pledging Holder; (ii) to allow such Note Pledgee a period of ten (10) Business Days to cure a default by the pledging Holder in respect of its obligations to the other Holders hereunder, but such Note Pledgee shall not be obligated to cure any such default; (iii) that no amendment, modification, waiver or termination of this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement (if the pledging Holder had the right to consent to such amendment, modification, waiver or termination pursuant to the terms hereof) shall be effective against such Note Pledgee without the written consent of such Note Pledgee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed and which consent shall be deemed to be given if Note Pledgee shall fail to respond to any request for consent to any such amendment, modification, waiver or termination within 10 days after request therefor; (iv) that the other Holders shall accept any cure by such Note Pledgee of any default of the pledging Holder which such pledging Holder has the right to effect hereunder, as if such cure were made by such pledging Holder; (v) that the other Holders or Servicer shall deliver to Note Pledgee such estoppel certificate(s) as Note Pledgee shall reasonably request, provided that any such certificate(s) shall be in a form reasonably satisfactory to the other Holders; and (vi) that, upon written notice (a “Redirection Notice”) to the Servicer by such Note Pledgee that the pledging Holder is in default beyond any applicable cure periods with respect to the pledging Holder’s obligations to such Note Pledgee pursuant to the applicable credit agreement or other agreements relating to the Pledge between the pledging Holder and such Note Pledgee (which notice need not be joined in or confirmed by the pledging Holder), and until such Redirection Notice is withdrawn or rescinded by such Note Pledgee, Note Pledgee (or at any time that pledging Holder otherwise directs that such payment be made to Note Pledgee pursuant to a separate notice) shall be entitled to receive any payments that any Servicer would otherwise be obligated to make to the pledging Holder from time to time pursuant to this Agreement or any Servicing Agreement. Any pledging Holder hereby unconditionally and absolutely releases the other Holders and any Servicer from any liability to the pledging Holder on account of any Holder’s or Servicer’s compliance with any Redirection Notice believed by any Servicer or other Holders in good faith to have been delivered by a Note Pledgee. Note Pledgee shall be permitted to exercise fully its rights and remedies against the pledging Holder (and accept an assignment in lieu of foreclosure as to such collateral), in accordance with applicable law, the pledge agreement, repurchase agreement or similar agreement between the pledging Holder and the

 

 -18-

 

 

Note Pledgee and this Agreement. In such event, or if the pledging holder otherwise assigns its interests to the Note Pledgee, the other Holders and the Servicer shall recognize such Note Pledgee (and any transferee (other than a Borrower or any Affiliate of a Borrower) that is also a Qualified Transferee at any foreclosure or similar sale held by such Note Pledgee or any transfer in lieu of foreclosure), and such Person’s successor and assigns, as the successor to the pledging Holder’s rights, remedies and obligations under this Agreement, and any such Note Pledgee or Qualified Transferee shall assume in writing the obligations of the pledging Holder hereunder accruing from and after such Transfer (i.e., realization upon the collateral by such Note Pledgee) and agrees to be bound by the terms and provisions of this Agreement. The rights of a Note Pledgee under this Section 12(d) shall remain effective as to any Holder (and any Servicer) unless and until such Note Pledgee shall have notified such Holder (and any Servicer, as applicable) in writing that its interest in the pledged Note has terminated.

 

(e)          The parties hereto acknowledge that (i) the sale of all or any portion of Note A-2 under the terms of a repurchase facility qualifies as a “Pledge” hereunder and that a buyer under such repurchase facility is a Qualified Transferee (ii) all of the terms of this Section 12 have been satisfied with respect to such Pledge, and (iii) the buyer under such repurchase facility qualifies as a “Note Pledgee” and is entitled to all of the rights, privileges and benefits afforded to a Note Pledgee hereunder. In addition, while the Pledge to a buyer under a repurchase facility is in effect, such buyer shall have all rights as Note A-2 Holder under all applicable documentation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no notice shall be required pursuant to Section 12(b) in connection with the Pledge to a buyer under a repurchase facility.

 

13.          Exercise of Remedies by the Servicer. (a) Subject to the terms of this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement and subject to the rights and consents, where required, of the Directing Holder, the Servicer shall have the sole and exclusive authority with respect to the administration of, and exercise of rights and remedies with respect to, the Mortgage Loan, including, without limitation, the sole and exclusive authority to (i) modify or waive any of the terms of the Mortgage Loan Documents, (ii) consent to any action or failure to act by the Borrower or any party to the Mortgage Loan Documents, (iii) vote all claims with respect to the Mortgage Loan in any bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar proceedings and (iv) to take legal action to enforce or protect the Holders’ interests with respect to the Mortgage Loan or to refrain from exercising any powers or rights under the Mortgage Loan Documents, including the right at any time to call or waive any Events of Default, or accelerate or refrain from accelerating the Mortgage Loan or institute any foreclosure action, and the Holders shall have no voting, consent or other rights whatsoever with respect to the Servicer’s administration of, or exercise of its rights and remedies with respect to, the Mortgage Loan other than as provided in the Servicing Agreement. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Servicing Agreement, the Servicer shall have the sole and exclusive authority to make Property Advances with respect to the Mortgage Loan. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, each Holder agrees that it shall have no right to, and hereby presently and irrevocably assigns and conveys to the Servicer the rights, if any, that such Holder has to (A) call or cause the Servicer to call an Event of Default under the Mortgage Loan, or (B) exercise any remedies with respect to the Mortgage Loan or the Borrower, including, without limitation, filing or causing the Lead Note Holder or such Servicer to file any bankruptcy petition against the Borrower. Each Holder shall, from time to time,

 

 -19-

 

 

execute such documents as any Servicer shall reasonably require to evidence such assignment with respect to the rights described in clause (iii) of the first sentence in this Section 13(a).

 

(b)          The Lead Servicer and the related Trustee shall not have any fiduciary duty to the Non-Lead Note Holders in connection with the administration of the Mortgage Loan (but the foregoing shall not relieve the Lead Servicer and the related Trustee from their respective obligation under the Servicing Agreement to make any disbursement of funds as set forth herein).

 

(c)          The Holders hereby acknowledge and agree that the Servicing Agreement shall provide that, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in the next sentence, upon the Mortgage Loan becoming a Defaulted Mortgage Loan, if the Special Servicer determines to sell the Defaulted Mortgage Loan (or the Lead Note), it will be required to sell the entire Defaulted Mortgage Loan as a single whole loan (i.e., both the Lead Note and Non-Lead Note). Any such sale of the entire Defaulted Mortgage Loan is subject to the satisfaction of the following:

 

(i)           Each Non-Lead Note Holder has provided written consent to such sale; or

 

(ii)          The Special Servicer has delivered the following notices and information to each Non-Lead Note Holder:

 

(1)          at least 15 Business Days prior written notice of any decision to attempt to sell the Defaulted Mortgage Loan;

 

(2)          at least 10 days prior to the proposed sale date, a copy of each bid package (together with any amendments to such bid packages) received by the Special Servicer in connection with any such proposed sale;

 

(3)          at least 10 days prior to the proposed sale date, a copy of the most recent Appraisal for the Mortgage Loan, and any documents in the Servicing File requested by a Non-Lead Note Holder; and

 

(4)          until the sale is completed and a reasonable period of time (but no less time than is afforded to other offerors and the Directing Holder) prior to the proposed sale date, all information and other documents being provided to other offerors and all leases or other documents that are approved by the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer in connection with the proposed sale.

 

Any Non-Lead Note Holder may waive any delivery or timing requirements set forth above only for itself. Subject to the foregoing, each of the Lead Note Holder, the Directing Holder, the Non-Lead Note Holders and the Non-Directing Holders shall be permitted to submit an offer at any sale of the Defaulted Mortgage Loan (unless such Person is a Borrower or an agent or Affiliate of a Borrower).

 

 -20-

 

 

The Non-Lead Note Holders hereby appoint the Lead Note Holder as their agent, and grant to the Lead Note Holder an irrevocable power of attorney coupled with an interest, and its proxy, for the purpose of soliciting and accepting offers for and consummating the sale of the Non-Lead Notes. Each Non-Lead Note Holder further agrees that, upon the request of the Lead Note Holder, such Non-Lead Note Holder shall execute and deliver to or at the direction of Lead Note Holder such powers of attorney or other instruments as the Lead Note Holder may reasonably request to better assure and evidence the foregoing appointment and grant, in each case promptly following such request, and shall deliver the related original Non-Lead Note, endorsed in blank, to or at the direction of the Lead Note Holder in connection with the consummation of any such sale.

 

(d)          Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the exercise by the Servicer on behalf of the Holders of its rights under this Section 13 shall be subject in all respects to any section of the Servicing Agreement governing REMIC administration, and in no event shall the Servicer be permitted to take any action or refrain from taking any action if taking or failing to take such action, as the case may be, would violate the laws of any applicable jurisdiction, breach the Mortgage Loan Documents or be inconsistent with the Servicing Standard or violate any other provisions of the Servicing Agreement or violate the REMIC provisions of the Code or any regulations promulgated thereunder, including, without limitation, the provisions of Section 2(f) of this Agreement.

 

14.          Rights of the Directing Holder. (a) The Directing Holder shall be entitled to exercise the rights and powers granted to the Directing Holder hereunder and the rights and powers granted to the “Directing Holder,” “Controlling Class Certificateholder,” “Controlling Class Representative” or similar party under, and as defined in, the Servicing Agreement with respect to the Mortgage Loan. In addition, the Directing Holder shall be entitled to advise (1) the Special Servicer with respect to all matters related to a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan and (2) the Special Servicer with respect to all matters for which the Master Servicer must obtain the consent or deemed consent of the Special Servicer, and, except as set forth below (i) the Master Servicer shall not be permitted to take any Major Action unless it has obtained the prior written consent of the Special Servicer and (ii) the Special Servicer shall not be permitted to consent to the Master Servicer’s taking any Major Action nor will the Special Servicer itself be permitted to take any Major Action as to which the Directing Holder has objected in writing within ten (10) Business Days (or 30 days with respect to an Acceptable Insurance Default) after receipt of the written recommendation and analysis and such additional information requested by the Directing Holder as may be necessary in the reasonable judgment of the Directing Holder in order to make a judgment with respect to such Major Action. The Directing Holder may also direct the Special Servicer to take, or to refrain from taking, such other actions with respect to the Mortgage Loan as the Directing Holder may deem advisable, subject to the terms of the Servicing Agreement.

 

(b)          If the Directing Holder fails to notify the Special Servicer of its approval or disapproval of any proposed Major Action within ten (10) Business Days (or 30 days with respect to an Acceptable Insurance Default) after delivery to the Directing Holder by the applicable Servicer of written notice of a proposed Major Action together with any information requested by the Directing Holder as may be necessary in the reasonable judgment of the Directing Holder in order to make a judgment, then upon the expiration of such ten (10)

 

 -21-

 

 

Business Day (or 30 days with respect to an Acceptable Insurance Default) period, such Major Action shall be deemed to have been approved by the Directing Holder.

 

(c)          In the event that the Special Servicer or Master Servicer (in the event the Master Servicer is otherwise authorized by the Servicing Agreement to take such action), as applicable, determines that immediate action, with respect to the foregoing matters, or any other matter requiring consent of the Directing Holder is necessary to protect the interests of the Holders (as a collective whole) and the Special Servicer has made a reasonable effort to contact the Directing Holder, the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer, as the case may be, may take any such action without waiting for the Directing Holder’s response.

 

(d)          No objection, direction or advice contemplated by the preceding paragraphs may require or cause the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer, as applicable, to violate any provision of the Mortgage Loan Documents, applicable law, the Servicing Agreement, this Agreement, the REMIC provisions of the Code or the Master Servicer or Special Servicer’s obligation to act in accordance with the Servicing Standard or expose the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer to liability, or materially expand the scope of the Master Servicer’s or the Special Servicer’s responsibilities under the Servicing Agreement.

 

(e)          The Directing Holder shall have no liability to the other Holders or any other Person for any action taken, or for refraining from the taking of any action or the giving of any consent or the failure to give any consent pursuant to this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement, or errors in judgment, absent any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of its willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence. The Holders agree that the Directing Holder may take or refrain from taking actions, or give or refrain from giving consents, that favor the interests of one Holder over the other Holder, and that the Directing Holder may have special relationships and interests that conflict with the interests of another Holder and, absent willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence on the part of the Directing Holder agree to take no action against the Directing Holder or any of its officers, directors, employees, principals or agents as a result of such special relationships or interests, and that the Directing Holder will not be deemed to have been grossly negligent or reckless, or to have acted in bad faith or engaged in willful misfeasance or to have recklessly disregarded any exercise of its rights by reason of its having acted or refrained from acting, or having given any consent or having failed to give any consent, solely in the interests of any Holder.

 

15.          Appointment of Special Servicer. Subject to the terms of the Servicing Agreement, the Directing Holder shall have the right at any time and from time to time, with or without cause, to replace the Special Servicer then acting with respect to the Mortgage Loan and appoint a Qualified Servicer as the replacement Special Servicer in lieu thereof. The Directing Holder shall designate a Person to serve as Special Servicer by delivering to the other Holders and the parties to the Note A-1 PSA and the Note A-2 PSA a written notice stating such designation and by satisfying the other conditions required under the Servicing Agreement (including, without limitation, a Rating Agency Confirmation, if required by the terms of the Servicing Agreement), if any.

 

 -22-

 

 

16.         Rights of the Non-Directing Holders. (a) The Lead Securitization PSA shall provide that the Servicer shall be required:

 

(i)          to provide copies of the same notices, information and reports that it is required to provide to the Directing Holder pursuant to the Servicing Agreement with respect to any Major Actions or the implementation of any recommended actions outlined in an Asset Status Report relating to the Mortgage Loan to the Non-Directing Holders (but without regard to whether or not the Directing Holder actually has lost any rights to receive such information as a result of a Consultation Termination Event), within the same time frame as specified with respect to the Directing Holder (but without regard to whether or not the Directing Holder actually has lost any rights to receive such information as a result of a Consultation Termination Event), provided, however, that if Note A-2 has been included in a Securitization transaction, then for any information for which the Special Servicer would be required to provide to such Non-Directing Holder, the Special Servicer shall provide such notice to the master servicer of the other Securitization transaction, who shall forward such notice as and when required under the terms of the related Securitization documents; and

 

(ii)         to consult with each Non-Directing Holder on a strictly non-binding basis, if, having received such notices, information and reports, such Non-Directing Holder requests consultation with respect to any such Major Action or the implementation of any recommended actions outlined in an Asset Status Report relating to the Mortgage Loan, and consider alternative actions recommended by such Non-Directing Holder; provided that after the expiration of a period of ten (10) Business Days from the delivery to each Non-Directing Holder of written notice of a proposed action, together with copies of the notice, information and report required to be provided to the Directing Holder, the Servicer shall no longer be obligated to consult with the Non-Directing Holders, whether or not the Non-Directing Holders have responded within such ten (10) Business Day period (unless the Servicer proposes a new course of action that is materially different from the action previously proposed, in which case such ten (10) Business Day period shall be begin anew from the date of such proposal and delivery of all information relating thereto).

 

(b)         Notwithstanding the foregoing non-binding consultation rights of the Non-Directing Holders, the Servicer may take any Major Action or any action set forth in the Asset Status Report before the expiration of the aforementioned ten (10) Business Day period if the Servicer determines that immediate action with respect thereto is necessary to protect the interests of the Holders.

 

(c)         In addition to the foregoing non-binding consultation rights, the Non-Directing Holders shall have the right to annual conference calls with the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer upon reasonable notice and at times reasonably acceptable to the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer, as applicable, in which servicing issues related to the Mortgage Loan are discussed.

The Lead Servicer, each Non-Lead Master Servicer and any Trustee will be entitled to interest on any Advance made in the manner and from the sources provided in the Note A-1 PSA or the Note A-2 PSA, as applicable.

 

(b)          The Lead Servicer and the related Trustee, as applicable, will be entitled to reimbursement for a Property Advance, first from the Collection Account established with respect to the Mortgage Loan, and then, if such Property Advance is a Nonrecoverable Advance, if such funds on deposit in the Collection Account are insufficient, from general collections of the Lead Securitization as provided in the Servicing Agreement.

 

(c)          To the extent amounts on deposit in the Collection Account with respect to the Mortgage Loan are insufficient to reimburse the Lead Servicer for any Property Advance and/or interest thereon and the Lead Servicer or the related Trustee, as applicable, obtains funds from general collections of the Lead Securitization as a reimbursement for a Property Advance or interest thereon, each Non-Lead Note Holder (including any Securitization into which any Non-Lead Note is deposited) shall be required to, promptly following notice from the Lead Servicer, pay to the Lead Securitization for its pro rata share of such Property Advance and/or interest thereon at the Reimbursement Rate. In addition, each Non-Lead Note Holder (including any Securitization into which any Non-Lead Note is deposited) shall promptly reimburse the Lead Servicer or the related Trustee for such Non-Lead Note Holder’s pro rata share of any fees, costs or expenses incurred in connection with the servicing and administration of the Mortgage Loan as to which the Lead Securitization or any of the parties thereto are entitled to be reimbursed pursuant to the terms of the Servicing Agreement (to the extent amounts on deposit in the Collection Account with respect to the Mortgage Loan are insufficient for reimbursement of such amounts).

 

(d)          The parties to each of the Note A-1 PSA and the Note A-2 PSA shall each be entitled to make their own recoverability determination with respect to a P&I Advance based on the information that they have on hand and in accordance with the Note A-1 PSA or the Note A-2 PSA, as applicable.

(ii)          if the applicable master servicer, special servicer or Trustee determines that a proposed P&I Advance, if made, or any outstanding P&I Advance previously made, would be, or is, as applicable, a nonrecoverable advance, the master servicer shall provide the other servicers written notice of such determination within 2 Business Days after such determination was made;

 

(iii)        in the event such Non-Lead Note Holder is responsible for its proportionate share of any Nonrecoverable Advances (or any other portion of a Nonrecoverable Advance) (and advance interest thereon) or other fee or expense pursuant to Section 17 and funds received with respect to such Non-Lead Note are insufficient to cover such

(iv)        each of the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer shall be indemnified (as and to the same extent the Lead Securitization Trust is required to indemnify each such party) against any claims, losses, penalties, fines, forfeitures, legal fees and related costs, judgments and any other costs, liabilities, fees and expenses, incurred in connection with any PSA that relate solely to its servicing of the Mortgage Loan, as applicable, and the master servicer under the related Non-Lead Servicing Agreement will be required to reimburse the Master Servicer, Special Servicer or Trustee under the Servicing Agreement, as applicable, out of general funds in the collection account (or equivalent account) established under the related Non-Lead Servicing Agreement;

 

(v)          each of Trustee and the master servicer under the Non-Lead Servicing Agreement, as applicable, shall acknowledge that, (i) each of the Master Servicer and the Trustee under the Servicing Agreement will be a third party beneficiary under the Non-Lead Servicing Agreement with respect to any provisions therein relating to (1) the reimbursement of any nonrecoverable advances made with respect to such Non-Lead Note by the Master Servicer or the Trustee under the Servicing Agreement and (2) as to the Master Servicer only, the indemnification of the Master Servicer against any claims, losses, penalties, fines, forfeitures, legal fees and related costs, judgments and any other costs, liabilities, fees and expenses, incurred in connection with any PSA and relating to such Non-Lead Note and (ii) the Special Servicer will be a third party beneficiary under the related Non-Lead Servicing Agreement with respect to any provisions therein relating to (1) the reimbursement of any nonrecoverable advances made with respect to such Non-Lead Note by the Special Servicer (it being understood that the Special Servicer is not required to make any Advances) and (2) the indemnification of the Special Servicer against any claims, losses, penalties, fines, forfeitures, legal fees and related costs, judgments and any other costs, liabilities, fees and expenses, incurred in connection with any PSA and relating to such Non-Lead Note; and
