4. INTEREST; PAYMENTS.

 

  4.1 Interest Accrual. Interest on the outstanding principal balance of this Note shall accrue from the Disbursement Date at the Note Rate calculated on an Actual/360 Basis.

 

  4.2 Payments. Monthly payments, each in the Interest Only Payment Amount, shall commence on the First Interest Only Due Date and continue on each Due Date thereafter. In addition, if the Disbursement Date is not the first day of a calendar month, an interest-only payment shall be due on the First Due Date. Borrower acknowledges that the Interest Only Payment Amount was determined using a 30/360 Basis despite the fact that interest on this Note accrues on an Actual /360 Basis. During a Cash Management Period, and on each Due Date thereafter so long as a Cash Management Period is continuing, all deposits and payments shall be made and applied in accordance with Section 4 of the Cash Management Agreement. All interest shall be paid in arrears. On the Maturity Date, all unpaid principal and accrued but unpaid interest shall be due and owing in full. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Note or the other Loan Documents, all payments and deposits due under this Note or the other Loan Documents shall be made to Lender not later than 12:00 noon, Pacific time, on the day on which such payment or deposit is due.

  4.3 Acknowledgments. Borrower acknowledges that interest calculated on an Actual/360 Basis exceeds interest calculated on a 30/360 Basis and, therefore: (a) a greater portion of each monthly installment of principal and interest will be applied to interest using the Actual/360 Basis than would be the case if interest accrued on a 30/360 Basis; and (b) the unpaid principal balance of this Note on the Maturity Date will be greater using the Actual/360 Basis than would be the case if interest accrued on a 30/360 Basis.

 

  4.4

Application of Payments. In the absence of a specific determination by Lender to the contrary, and subject to Borrower’s right to receive Permitted REIT Distributions, all payments paid by Borrower to Lender in connection

 

3


 

with the obligations of Borrower under this Note and under the other Loan Documents shall be applied in the following order of priority: (a) to amounts, other than principal and interest, due to Lender pursuant to this Note or the other Loan Documents; (b) to accrued but unpaid interest on this Note; and (c) to the unpaid principal balance of this Note. Subject to the foregoing, Borrower irrevocably waives the right to direct the application of any payments at any time received by Lender from or on behalf of Borrower, and Borrower agrees that Lender shall have the continuing exclusive right to apply any such payments to the then due and owing obligations of Borrower in such order of priority as Lender may deem advisable.

 

5. LATE CHARGE; DEFAULT RATE.

 

  5.1 Late Charge. If all or any portion of any payment (including, without limitation, any payment of any interest, Interest Only Payment amount, impound or other deposit) required pursuant to the Cash Management Agreement or hereunder (other than the payment due on the Maturity Date) is not paid or deposited on or before the fifth day following the day on which the payment is due, Borrower shall pay a late or collection charge, as liquidated damages, equal to 5% of the amount of such unpaid payment. If all or any portion of the payment due on the Maturity Date is paid after the Maturity Date and on a date which is not the first day of a calendar month, Borrower shall pay a late or collection charge, as liquidated damages, equal to the interest which would have accrued on such amount during the period commencing on the date payment of such amount is actually made and ending on the last day of the calendar month in which payment of such amount is actually made. Borrower acknowledges that Lender will incur additional expenses as a result of any late payments or deposits hereunder, which expenses would be impracticable to quantify, and that Borrower’s payments under this Section 5.1 are a reasonable estimate of such expenses.

 

  5.2 Default Rate. Commencing upon a Default and continuing until such Default shall have been cured by Borrower, all sums owing on this Note shall bear interest until paid in full at the Default Rate.

 

6. MAXIMUM RATE PERMITTED BY LAW. Neither this Note nor any of the other Loan Documents shall require the payment or permit the payment, taking, reserving, receiving, collection or charging of any sums constituting interest in excess of the maximum amount permitted by law. If any such excess interest is called for, contracted for, charged, taken, reserved, or received in connection with the Loan, or in the event all or part of the principal or interest under this Note shall be prepaid or accelerated, so that under any of such circumstances or under any other circumstance the amount of interest contracted for, charged, taken, reserved, or received on the amount of principal actually outstanding from time to time shall exceed the maximum amount of interest permitted by applicable usury laws, if any, then in any such event it is agreed as follows: (i) the provisions of this paragraph shall govern and control, (ii) neither the Borrower nor any other person shall be obligated to pay the amount of such interest to the extent such interest is in excess of the maximum amount of interest permitted by applicable usury laws, (iii) any such excess which is or has been received notwithstanding this paragraph shall be credited against the then unpaid principal balance of the Loan or, if the Loan has been or would be paid in full, refunded to the Borrower, and (iv) the provisions of this Note and other Loan Documents shall immediately be deemed reformed and such excess interest reduced, without the necessity of executing any other document, to the maximum lawful rate allowed. Without limiting the foregoing, all calculations of the rate of interest for the purpose of determining whether such rate exceeds the maximum lawful rate shall be made to the extent permitted by applicable laws by amortizing, prorating, allocating and spreading during the period of the full term of the Loan, all interest at any time contracted for, charged, taken, reserved, or received.

 

7. ACCELERATION. If (a) Borrower shall fail to pay when due any sums payable under this Note following the expiration of notice, grace or cure periods, if any; (b) any other Default shall occur; or (c) any other event or condition shall occur which, under the terms of the Deed of Trust or any other Loan Document, gives rise to a right of acceleration of sums owing under this Note following the expiration of notice, grace or cure periods, if any, then Lender, at its sole option, shall have the right to declare all sums owing under this Note immediately due and payable; provided, however, that if the Deed of Trust or any other Loan Document provides for the automatic acceleration of payment of sums owing under this Note, all sums owing under this Note shall be automatically due and payable in accordance with the terms of the Deed of Trust or such other Loan Document.

 

8. BORROWER’S LIABILITY.

 

  8.1 Limitation. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 8, Lender’s recovery against Borrower under this Note and the other Loan Documents shall be limited solely to the Property and the Collateral.

  8.3 No Release or Impairment. Nothing contained in Section 8.1 shall be deemed to release, affect or impair the indebtedness evidenced by this Note or the obligations of Borrower under, or the liens and security interests created by the Loan Documents, or Lender’s rights to enforce its remedies under this Note and the other Loan Documents, including, without limitation, the right to pursue any remedy for injunctive or other equitable relief, or any suit or action in connection with the preservation, enforcement or foreclosure of the liens, mortgages, assignments and security interests which are now or at any time hereafter security for the payment and performance of all obligations under this Note or the other Loan Documents.

 

  8.4 Prevail and Control. The provisions of this Section 8 shall prevail and control over any contrary provisions elsewhere in this Note or the other Loan Documents.

 

9. NON-TRUSTOR BORROWER. If any Borrower is not also a Trustor (as defined in the Deed of Trust), such Borrower hereby makes all representations and warranties contained in Article 5 of the Deed of Trust, all covenants contained in Section 6.15 of the Deed of Trust, and all indemnities contained in Section 6.19 of the Deed of Trust, jointly and severally with the Trustor, to and for the benefit of Beneficiary and Beneficiary Group (both as defined in the Deed of Trust).

 

10. MISCELLANEOUS.

 

  10.1 Joint and Several Liability. If this Note is executed by more than one person or entity as Borrower, the obligations of each such person or entity shall be joint and several. No person or entity shall be a mere accommodation maker, but each shall be primarily and directly liable hereunder.

 

  10.2 Waiver of Presentment. Except as otherwise provided in any other Loan Document, Borrower hereby waives presentment, demand, notice of dishonor, notice of default or delinquency, notice of intent to accelerate, notice of acceleration, notice of nonpayment, notice of costs, expenses or losses and interest thereon, and notice of interest on interest and late charges.

 

  10.3 Delay In Enforcement. No previous waiver or failure or delay by Lender in acting with respect to the terms of this Note or the Deed of Trust shall constitute a waiver of any breach, default or failure of condition under this Note, the Deed of Trust or the obligations secured thereby. A waiver of any term of this Note, the Deed of Trust or of any of the obligations secured thereby must be made in writing signed by Lender, shall be limited to the express terms of such waiver, and shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent obligation of Borrower. The acceptance at any time by Lender of any past-due amount shall not be deemed to be a waiver of the right to require prompt payment when due of any other amounts then or thereafter due and payable.

  10.4 Time of the Essence. Time is of the essence with respect to every provision hereof.

 

  10.5 Governing Law.

  10.12 Exhibits. Exhibits A and B attached hereto are incorporated herein by this reference.

 

11. PREPAYMENT—DEFEASANCE ONLY. Borrower acknowledges that any prepayment of this Note will cause Lender to lose its interest rate yield on this Note and will possibly require that Lender reinvest any such prepayment amount in loans of a lesser interest rate yield (including, without limitation, in debt obligations other than first mortgage loans on commercial properties). As a consequence, Borrower agrees as follows, as an integral part of the consideration for Lender’s making the Loan:

 

  11.1 Voluntary Prepayment. Any voluntary prepayment of this Note: (a) is prohibited during the Prepayment Lockout Period, and (b) is permitted in full only, and not in part.

 

  11.2 Prepayment Charge.

 

  a. Basic Charge. Except as provided below, if this Note is prepaid prior to the Open Period Start Date, whether such prepayment is involuntary or upon acceleration of the principal amount of this Note by Lender following a Default, Borrower shall pay to Lender on the prepayment date (in addition to all other sums then due and owing to Lender under the Loan Documents) a prepayment charge equal to the greater of the following two amounts: (i) an amount equal to 1% of the amount prepaid; or (ii) an amount equal to (A) the amount, if any, by which the sum of the present values as of the prepayment date of all unpaid principal and interest payments required under this Note, calculated by discounting such payments from their respective Due Dates (or, with respect to the payment required on the Maturity Date, from the Maturity Date) back to the prepayment date at a discount rate equal to the Periodic Treasury Yield (defined below) exceeds the outstanding principal balance of the Loan as of the prepayment date, multiplied by (B) a fraction whose numerator is the amount prepaid and whose denominator is the outstanding principal balance of the Loan as of the prepayment date. For purposes of the foregoing, “Periodic Treasury Yield” means (iii) the annual yield to maturity of the actively traded non-callable United States Treasury fixed interest rate security (other than any such security which can be surrendered at the option of the holder at face value in payment of federal estate tax or which was issued at a substantial discount) that has a maturity closest to (whether before, on or after) the Maturity Date (or if two or more such securities have maturity dates equally close to the Maturity Date, the average annual yield to maturity of all such securities), as reported in The Wall Street Journal or other authoritative publication or news retrieval service on the fifth Business Day preceding the prepayment date, divided by (iv) 12.

 

  b. Additional Charge. If this Note is prepaid on any day other than a Due Date, whether such prepayment is voluntary, involuntary or upon full acceleration of the principal amount of this Note by Lender following a Default, Borrower shall pay to Lender on the prepayment date (in addition to the basic prepayment charge described in Section 11.2 a above and all other sums then due and owing to Lender under this Note and the other Loan Documents) an additional prepayment charge equal to the interest which would otherwise have accrued on the amount prepaid (had such prepayment not occurred) during the period from and including the prepayment date to and including the last day of the calendar month in which the prepayment occurred.

 

  c. Exclusion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no prepayment charge of any kind shall apply in respect to any prepayment resulting from Lender’s application of any insurance proceeds or condemnation awards to the outstanding principal balance of the Loan.

 

  11.3 Effect of Prepayment. No partial prepayment of this Note shall change any Due Date or the Interest Only Payment Amount, unless Lender otherwise agrees in writing.

 

  11.4

Waiver. Borrower waives any right to prepay this Note except under the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 11 and agrees that if this Note is prepaid, Borrower shall pay the prepayment charge set forth above. Borrower hereby acknowledges that: (a) the inclusion of this waiver of prepayment rights and agreement to pay the prepayment charge for the right to prepay this Note was separately negotiated with Lender; (b) the

 

7


 

economic value of the various elements of this waiver and agreement was discussed; (c) the consideration given by Borrower for the Loan was adjusted to reflect the specific waiver and agreement negotiated between Borrower and Lender and contained herein; and (d) this waiver is intended to comply with California Civil Code Section 2954.10.

Borrower’s Initials:             

 

12. DEFEASANCE-FULL.

 

  12.1 Borrower Right to Defease. At any time during the Defeasance Option Period, Borrower may elect to effect a Defeasance in accordance with the provisions of this Section 12, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense.

 

  12.2 Conditions. Borrower shall only have the right to cause a Defeasance if all of the following conditions have been satisfied:

 

  a. Notice. Borrower shall give at least 60 days but not more than 90 days written notice to Lender specifying the Borrower’s intended Defeasance Date. Simultaneously with the delivery of such notice, Borrower shall deposit with Lender an amount estimated by Lender to be sufficient to reimburse Lender’s anticipated expenses in connection with the Defeasance, for which Borrower shall be solely responsible whether or not the Defeasance shall be completed. If any such notice shall have been given by Borrower, Borrower shall be obligated to complete the Defeasance on the Defeasance Date, unless such notice is revoked in writing by Borrower prior to the Defeasance Date. Upon completion of the Defeasance or revocation by Borrower as specified above, Lender shall return any surplus deposit to Borrower;

 

  b. No Default. No Default shall exist or would exist with notice or passage of time, or both, either on the date of receipt of Borrower’s notice under Section 12.2 a above or on the Defeasance Date;

 

  c. Payments. Borrower shall pay in full, on or before the Defeasance Date (i) all unpaid interest accruing under this Note to and including the Defeasance Date (or otherwise cause Successor Borrower to assume liability for such interest), (ii) all other sums due under this Note and the other Loan Documents on or before the Defeasance Date, (iii) all escrow, closing, recording, legal, appraisal, Rating Agency and other fees, costs and expenses paid or incurred by Lender or its agents in connection with the Defeasance, the release of the lien of the Deed of Trust on the Property, the review of the proposed Defeasance Collateral and the preparation of the Defeasance Security Agreements and related documentation, and (iv) any revenue, documentary stamp, intangible or other taxes, charges or fees due in connection with the transfer or assumption of this Note or the Defeasance;

 

  d. Deliveries. Borrower shall, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense, deliver the following items to Lender on or before the Defeasance Date:

 

  (i) The Defeasance Collateral, as substitute collateral for the Loan, provided, however, the principal and interest payments under the Defeasance Collateral (without regard to earnings from reinvestment of proceeds) must be, in timing and amounts, sufficient to provide for payment prior, but as close as possible, to (A) all Due Dates occurring after the Defeasance Date, with each such payment being equal to or greater than the amount of the corresponding Interest Only Payment Amount and (B) the Maturity Date (with such payment being equal to or greater than the amount of the principal and interest payment due on the Maturity Date); and provided further, however, that Borrower shall take such actions, enter such agreements and issue such orders or directions (including those specified below), as are necessary or appropriate and in accordance with customary commercial standards to effectuate book-entry transfers and pledges through the book-entry facilities of the institution holding the Defeasance Collateral or otherwise to create and perfect a valid, enforceable, first priority security interest in the Defeasance Collateral in favor of Lender;

specifically intended to survive the repayment of the Loan or other termination, satisfaction or assignment of this Note, the Defeasance Security Agreements or the other Loan Documents or Lender’s exercise of its rights and remedies under any of such documents and instruments.

 

13. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. TO THE EXTENT NOW OR HEREAFTER PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, LENDER AND BORROWER HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHTS THEY MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION BASED HEREON, OR ARISING OUT OF, UNDER, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THIS NOTE OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT, OR ANY COURSE OF CONDUCT, COURSE OF DEALING, STATEMENTS (WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN), OR ACTIONS OF LENDER OR BORROWER. THIS PROVISION IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR LENDER TO MAKE THE LOAN TO BORROWER.

 

14. PERMITTED REIT DISTRIBUTIONS. Borrower’s right to make Permitted REIT Distributions shall be subject to the following terms and conditions. At least 14 days prior to the end of the then current Projection Period (as defined below), Borrower shall deliver to Lender: (a) written notice setting forth an estimate of the REIT’s taxable income for the Property and the Permitted REIT Operating Expenses (the “REIT Distribution Notice”) for the immediate succeeding period of no less than one fiscal quarter and no more than one fiscal year (each, a “Projection Period”), which REIT Distribution Notice shall also set forth the amount of cash flow from the Property needed to make Permitted REIT Distributions related to such Projection Period, and (b) written confirmation from Ernst & Young or another “Big 4” accounting firm that the estimate of the REIT’s taxable income generated by the Property for the applicable Projection Period, as reflected in the REIT Distribution Notice, is a reasonable estimate of the same, all in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Lender. Such estimate shall be based on (1) the REIT’s actual taxable income for the Property and the actual Permitted REIT Operating Expenses for the then current calendar year and (2) the REIT’s projected taxable income for the Property and the projected Permitted REIT Operating Expenses for the remainder of such calendar year. Within 30 days following the end of each fiscal quarter, Borrower shall deliver to Lender a statement of the REIT’s actual taxable income for the Property and the actual Permitted REIT Operating Expenses for the immediately ended fiscal quarter and evidence supporting such statement and (A) if the Permitted REIT Distributions made for such fiscal quarter exceeded the estimate set forth in the REIT Distribution Notice applicable to such fiscal quarter, the estimate of the Permitted REIT Distributions for the immediately succeeding fiscal quarter shall be adjusted to reduce the estimated amount of the Permitted REIT Distributions by the amount of such excess and (B) if the Permitted REIT Distributions made for such fiscal quarter was less than the estimate set forth in the REIT Distribution Notice applicable to such fiscal quarter, the estimate of the Permitted REIT Distributions for the immediately succeeding fiscal quarter shall be adjusted to increase the estimated amount of the Permitted REIT Distributions by the amount of such shortfall. Notwithstanding anything stated to the contrary in this Note (including the provisions of Exhibit A attached hereto), Lender acknowledges and agrees that, at all times prior to the Maturity Date, the funding of all reserves and other amounts are expressly subject to the provisions permitting disbursement to Borrower of Permitted REIT Distributions as provided herein.

WINDSTORM INSURANCE DEDUCTIBLE. Borrower acknowledges that Lender is making the Loan notwithstanding the fact that Borrower’s insurance deductible for windstorm coverage, as set forth in the Agreement Regarding Required Insurance, is the sum of 10% of the insurable replacement cost of the Property plus rental income.

insurance deductible for windstorm coverage that is not greater than the sum of 7.5% of the insurable replacement cost of the Property plus rental income (the “Required Deductible”). Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees that it shall deliver evidence of insurance coverage required by the Agreement Regarding Required Insurance, including evidence of the Required Deductible, in a form reasonably satisfactory to Lender, using commercial standards customarily applied by prudent institutional mortgage lenders for similar loans, on or before the date that is sixty (60) calendar days after the date hereof. Borrower further agrees that Borrower’s failure to deliver evidence of insurance as required by the Agreement Regarding Required Insurance, including evidence of the Required Deductible, shall constitute an “Optional Default” under the provisions of Section 7.1.a of the Deed of Trust, but that the Borrower shall not be entitled to the cure period set forth in Section 7.1.a.(ii) for Borrower’s failure to perform the obligations required under this Section 16.
