WITNESSETH: WHEREAS, pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement (as defined herein), GMAC Mortgage Corporation, as seller (in such capacity, "GMACM") and as servicer, and Walnut Grove Mortgage Loan Trust 2003-A, as seller ("WG Trust 2003" and, with GMACM, each a "Seller" and together, the "Sellers"), will sell to Residential Asset Mortgage Products, Inc. ("RAMP"), as purchaser (in such capacity, the "Purchaser"), the Initial Mortgage Loans on the Closing Date, and may sell Subsequent Mortgage Loans on one or more Subsequent Transfer Dates, together with the Related Documents on the Closing Date and any Subsequent Transfer Date; WHEREAS, RAMP, as depositor (in such capacity, the "Depositor"), will sell the Initial Mortgage Loans and assign all of its rights under the Purchase Agreement to the Issuer, together with the Related Documents on the Closing Date; WHEREAS, pursuant to the terms of the Trust Agreement, the Issuer will issue the Certificates; WHEREAS, pursuant to the terms of the Indenture, the Issuer will issue the Notes; and WHEREAS, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, the Servicer will service the Mortgage Loans directly or through one or more Subservicers.

ARTICLE II Representations and Warranties Section 2.01 Representations and Warranties Regarding the Servicer. The Servicer represents and warrants to the Issuer and for the benefit of the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans, as of the Closing Date: (a) the Servicer is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and has the corporate power to own its assets and to transact the business in which it is currently engaged. The Servicer is duly qualified to do business as a foreign corporation and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the character of the business transacted by it or properties owned or leased by it requires such qualification and in which the failure to so qualify would have a material adverse effect (not in the ordinary course of business) on the business, properties, assets, or condition (financial or other) of the Servicer; (b) the Servicer has the power and authority to make, execute, deliver and perform this Agreement and all of the transactions contemplated under this Agreement, and has taken all necessary corporate action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement. When executed and delivered, this Servicing Agreement will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Servicer enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as enforcement of such terms may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights generally and by the availability of equitable remedies; (c) the Servicer is not required to obtain the consent of any other Person or any consent, license, approval or authorization from, or registration or declaration with, any governmental authority, bureau or agency in connection with the execution, delivery, performance, validity or enforceability of this Agreement, except for such consent, license, approval or authorization, or registration or declaration, as shall have been obtained or filed, as the case may be; (d) the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the performance of the transactions contemplated hereby by the Servicer will not violate any material provision of any existing law or regulation or any order or decree of any court applicable to the Servicer or any provision of the Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws of the Servicer, or constitute a material breach of any material mortgage, indenture, contract or other agreement to which the Servicer is a party or by which the Servicer may be bound; (e) no litigation or administrative proceeding of or before any court, tribunal or governmental body is currently pending, or to the knowledge of the Servicer threatened, against the Servicer or any of its properties or with respect to this Agreement or the Securities which in the opinion of the Servicer has a reasonable likelihood of resulting in a material adverse effect on the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; (f) the Servicer is a member of MERS in good standing, and will comply in all material respects with the rules and procedures of MERS in connection with the servicing of the Mortgage Loans that are registered with MERS; and (g) the servicing of the Mortgage Loans has at all times been conducted in material compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations and there has been no material violation of any such laws, rules or regulations arising out of the servicing of the Mortgage Loans. The foregoing representations and warranties shall survive any termination of the Servicer hereunder. Section 2.02 Representations and Warranties of the Issuer. The Issuer hereby represents and warrants to the Servicer and for the benefit of the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans, as of the Closing Date: (a) the Issuer is a statutory trust duly formed and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware and has full power, authority and legal right to execute and deliver this Agreement and to perform its obligations under this Agreement, and has taken all necessary action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance by it of this Agreement; and (b) the execution and delivery by the Issuer of this Agreement and the performance by the Issuer of its obligations under this Agreement will not violate any provision of any law or regulation governing the Issuer or any order, writ, judgment or decree of any court, arbitrator or governmental authority or agency applicable to the Issuer or any of its assets. Such execution, delivery, authentication and performance will not require the authorization, consent or approval of, the giving of notice to, the filing or registration with, or the taking of any other action with respect to, any governmental authority or agency regulating the activities of limited liability companies. Such execution, delivery, authentication and performance will not conflict with, or result in a breach or violation of, any mortgage, deed of trust, lease or other agreement or instrument to which the Issuer is bound. Section 2.03 Enforcement of Representations and Warranties. The Servicer, on behalf of and subject to the direction of the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans, or the Issuer, shall enforce the representations and warranties of the Sellers pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. Upon the discovery by the Sellers, the Depositor, the Servicer, the Indenture Trustee, the Enhancer, the Issuer, or the Custodian of a breach of any of the representations and warranties made by a Seller in the Purchase Agreement, in respect of any Mortgage Loan which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Securityholders or the Enhancer, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice to the other parties (the Custodian being so obligated under the Custodial Agreement). The Servicer shall promptly notify such Seller of such breach and request that, pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Seller either (i) cure such breach in all material respects within 90 days from the date the Seller was notified of such breach, or in the case of a breach which has the effect of making the Mortgage Loan fail to be a "qualified mortgage" within the meaning of Section 860G of the Internal Revenue Code, within 90 days after the discovery thereof by the Sellers, the Depositor, the Servicer, the Indenture Trustee, the Issuer or the Purchaser or (ii) purchase such Mortgage Loan from the Issuer at the price and in the manner set forth in Section 3.1(e) of the Purchase Agreement; provided, that the Seller shall, subject to the conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, have the option to substitute an Eligible Substitute Loan or Loans for such Mortgage Loan, provided that such substitution occurs within two years following the Closing Date. In the event that the Seller elects to substitute one or more Eligible Substitute Loans pursuant to Section 3.1(e) of the Purchase Agreement, the Seller shall deliver to the Custodian or the Servicer, in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, with respect to such Eligible Substitute Loans, the original Mortgage Note, the Mortgage, and such other documents and agreements as are required by the Purchase Agreement. Payments due with respect to Eligible Substitute Loans in the month of substitution shall not be transferred to the Issuer and will be retained by the Servicer and remitted by the Servicer to such Seller on the next succeeding Payment Date except to the extent that a payment less than the applicable Monthly Payment has been received by the Issuer for such month in respect of the Mortgage Loan to be removed. The Servicer shall amend or cause to be amended the Mortgage Loan Schedule to reflect the removal of such Mortgage Loan and the substitution of the Eligible Substitute Loans and the Servicer shall promptly deliver the amended Mortgage Loan Schedule to the Owner Trustee and Indenture Trustee. It is understood and agreed that the obligation of the Sellers to cure such breach or purchase or substitute for such Mortgage Loan as to which such a breach has occurred and is continuing shall constitute the sole remedy respecting such breach available to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans, against any Seller. In connection with the purchase of or substitution for any such Mortgage Loan by such Seller, the Issuer shall assign to such Seller all of its right, title and interest in respect of the Purchase Agreement applicable to such Mortgage Loan. Upon receipt of the Repurchase Price, or upon completion of such substitution, the Servicer shall notify the Custodian, and the Custodian shall deliver the Mortgage Notes to the Servicer, together with all relevant endorsements and assignments prepared by the Servicer that the Indenture Trustee shall execute.
ARTICLE III Administration and Servicing of Mortgage Loans Section 3.01 The Servicer. (a) The Servicer shall service and administer the Mortgage Loans in a manner generally consistent with the terms of the Program Guide and in a manner consistent with the terms of this Agreement and that shall be normal and usual in its general mortgage servicing activities and consistent with the manner in which it services all other Mortgage Loans in its servicing portfolio with characteristics similar to those of the Mortgage Loans. The Servicer shall have full power and authority, acting alone or through a Subservicer, to do any and all things in connection with such servicing and administration which it may deem necessary or desirable, it being understood, however, that the Servicer shall at all times remain responsible to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans, for the performance of its duties and obligations hereunder in accordance with the terms hereof and the Program Guide. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer shall continue, and is hereby authorized and empowered by the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans, to execute and deliver, on behalf of itself, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or any of them, any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge and all other comparable instruments with respect to the Mortgage Loans and the Mortgaged Properties. The Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Custodian, as applicable, shall furnish the Servicer with any powers of attorney and other documents necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties hereunder. In addition, the Servicer may, at its own discretion and on behalf of the Indenture Trustee, obtain credit information in the form of a "credit score" from a credit repository. On the Closing Date, the Indenture Trustee shall deliver to the Servicer a limited power of attorney substantially in the form of Exhibit B hereto. The Servicer is further authorized and empowered by the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, on behalf of the Noteholders and the Indenture Trustee, in its own name or in the name of the Subservicer, when the Servicer or the Subservicer, as the case may be, believes it appropriate in its best judgment to register any Mortgage Loan on the MERS(R)System, or cause the removal from the registration of any Mortgage Loan on the MERS(R)System, to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders or any of them, any and all instruments of assignment and other comparable instruments with respect to such assignment or re-recording of a Mortgage in the name of MERS, solely as nominee for the Indenture Trustee and its successors and assigns. The Indenture Trustee shall have no ongoing responsibility to check the status of the Mortgage Loans on the MERS(R)System. Any expenses incurred in connection with the actions described in the preceding sentence shall be borne by the Servicer, with no right of reimbursement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, subject to Section 3.02(a), 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 and any proposed, temporary or final regulations promulgated thereunder and cause any REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC under the Code or, except as provided in Section 11.01(f) of the Indenture, cause the imposition of a tax upon any of the REMICs (including but not limited to the tax on prohibited transactions as defined in Section 860F(a)(2) of the Code and the tax on contributions to a REMIC set forth in Section 860G(d) of the Code). Subject to Section 3.15, if the Mortgage did not have a Lien senior to the related Mortgage Loan on the related Mortgaged Property as of the related Cut-Off Date, then the Servicer, in such capacity, may not consent to the placing of a Lien senior to that of the Mortgage on the related Mortgaged Property. Subject to Section 3.15, if the Mortgage had a Lien senior to the related Mortgage Loan on the related Mortgaged Property as of the related Cut-Off Date, then the Servicer, in such capacity, may not consent to the refinancing of such prior senior Lien; unless (i) the resulting CLTV of such Mortgage Loan is no higher than the greater of the CLTV prior to such refinancing or a 70% CLTV (or a 80% CLTV for those borrowers with a FICO "credit score" of 720 or greater) and (ii) the interest rate for the loan evidencing the refinanced senior Lien is no higher than the interest rate on the loan evidencing the existing senior Lien immediately prior to the date of such refinancing (meaning, in the case of an adjustable rate loan, a substantially similar index and a gross margin no higher than that of the existing senior Lien); provided, however, that if the loan evidencing the existing senior Lien prior to the date of refinancing is an adjustable rate loan and the loan evidencing the refinanced senior Lien is a fixed rate loan, then the interest rate on the loan evidencing the refinanced senior Lien may be up to 2.0% higher than the then-current mortgage rate of the loan evidencing the existing senior Lien and (iii) the loan evidencing the refinanced senior Lien is not subject to negative amortization. In connection with servicing the Mortgage Loans, the Servicer may take reasonable actions to encourage or effect the termination of Mortgage Notes that have become dormant. The relationship of the Servicer (and of any successor to the Servicer as servicer under this Agreement) to the Issuer under this Agreement is intended by the parties to be that of an independent contractor and not that of a joint venturer, partner or agent. (b) The Servicer may enter into Subservicing Agreements with Subservicers for the servicing and administration of certain of the Mortgage Loans. The Servicer shall provide notice to the Indenture Trustee upon entering into a Subservicing Agreement. References in this Agreement to actions taken or to be taken by the Servicer in servicing the Mortgage Loans include actions taken or to be taken by a Subservicer on behalf of the Servicer and any amount actually received by such Subservicer in respect of a Mortgage Loan shall be deemed to have been received by the Servicer whether or not actually received by the Servicer. Each Subservicing Agreement will be upon such terms and conditions as are not inconsistent with this Agreement and as the Servicer and the Subservicer have agreed. With the approval of the Servicer, a Subservicer may delegate its servicing obligations to third-party servicers, but such Subservicers will remain obligated under the related Subservicing Agreements. The Servicer and the Subservicer may enter into amendments to the related Subservicing Agreements; provided, however, that any such amendments shall not cause the Mortgage Loans to be serviced in a manner that would be materially inconsistent with the standards set forth in this Agreement. The Servicer shall be entitled to terminate any Subservicing Agreement in accordance with the terms and conditions thereof and without any limitation by virtue of this Agreement; provided, however, that in the event of termination of any Subservicing Agreement by the Servicer or the Subservicer, the Servicer shall either act as servicer of the related Mortgage Loan or enter into a Subservicing Agreement with a successor Subservicer which will be bound by the terms of the related Subservicing Agreement. The Servicer shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with a Subservicer for indemnification of the Servicer and nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification. In the event that the rights, duties and obligations of the Servicer are terminated hereunder, any successor to the Servicer in its sole discretion may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, terminate the existing Subservicing Agreement with any Subservicer in accordance with the terms of the applicable Subservicing Agreement or assume the terminated Servicer's rights and obligations under such subservicing arrangements which termination or assumption will not violate the terms of such arrangements. As part of its servicing activities hereunder, the Servicer, for the benefit of the Indenture Trustee, the Enhancer and the Securityholders, shall use reasonable efforts to enforce the obligations of each Subservicer under the related Subservicing Agreement, to the extent that the non-performance of any such obligation would have a material adverse effect on a Mortgage Loan. Such enforcement, including, without limitation, the legal prosecution of claims, termination of Subservicing Agreements and the pursuit of other appropriate remedies, shall be in such form and carried out to such an extent and at such time as the Servicer, in its good faith business judgment, would require were it the owner of the related Mortgage Loans. The Servicer shall pay the costs of such enforcement at its own expense, and shall be reimbursed therefor only (i) from a general recovery resulting from such enforcement to the extent, if any, that such recovery exceeds all amounts due in respect of the related Mortgage Loan or (ii) from a specific recovery of costs, expenses or attorneys fees against the party against whom such enforcement is directed. (c) All other documents contained in the Mortgage File and any original documents relating to the Mortgage Loans not contained in the Mortgage File or delivered to the Custodian, if any, or the Indenture Trustee are and shall be held by the Servicer in trust as agent for the Indenture Trustee on behalf of the Noteholders. Section 3.02 Collection of Certain Mortgage Loan Payments. (a) The Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect 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 generally consistent with the Program Guide, follow such collection procedures as shall be normal and usual in its general mortgage servicing activities and consistent with the procedures the Servicer employs in servicing all other Mortgage Loans in the servicing portfolio with characteristics similar to those of the Mortgage Loans. Consistent with the foregoing, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer may in its discretion (i) waive any late payment charge, penalty interest or other fees which may be collected in the ordinary course of servicing a Mortgage Loan and (ii) arrange with a Mortgagor a schedule for the payment of principal and interest due and unpaid; provided, that such arrangement is consistent with the Servicer's policies with respect to home equity mortgage loans; and provided further, that notwithstanding such arrangement, such Mortgage Loans will be included in the information regarding delinquent Mortgage Loans set forth in the Servicing Certificate. The Servicer may also extend the Due Date for payment due on a Mortgage Loan in accordance with the Program Guide; provided, however, that the Servicer shall first determine that any such waiver or extension will not impair the coverage of any related insurance policy or materially adversely affect the Lien of the related Mortgage or the interests of the Securityholders or the Enhancer, and the Servicer shall not grant any such waiver or extension that would have any such effect. Consistent with the terms of this Agreement, the Servicer may also: (i) waive, modify or vary any term of any Mortgage Loan; (ii) consent to the postponement of strict compliance with any such term or in any manner grant indulgence to any Mortgagor; (iii) arrange with a Mortgagor a schedule for the payment of principal and interest due and unpaid; (iv) forgive any portion of the amounts contractually owed under the Mortgage Loan; (v) capitalize past due amounts owed under the Mortgage Loan by adding any amounts in arrearage to the existing principal balance of the Mortgage Loan (a "Capitalization Workout") which will result in an increased Monthly Payment amount, provided that: (A) the amount added to the existing principal balance of the Mortgage Loan (the "Capitalized Amount") shall be no greater than five times the Mortgagor's current Minimum Monthly Payment amount; and (B) the Servicer shall not enter into a Capitalization Workout unless the CLTV of the Mortgage Loan prior to the Capitalization Workout equals or exceeds 80% and the Mortgagor has qualified for the Capitalization Workout under the Servicer's servicing guidelines; or (vi) reset the maturity date for the Mortgage Loan, but in no event shall such reset date extend beyond the end of the Collection Period preceding the Final Payment Date; or any combination of the foregoing, if in the Servicer's determination such waiver, modification, postponement or indulgence is not materially adverse to the interests of the Securityholders or the Enhancer; provided, however, that the Servicer may not modify or permit any Subservicer to modify any Mortgage Loan (including without limitation any modification that would change the Loan Rate, forgive the payment of any principal or interest (unless in connection with the liquidation of the related Mortgage Loan) or extend the final maturity date of such Mortgage Loan) unless such Mortgage Loan is in default or, in the judgment of the Servicer, such default is reasonably foreseeable. The general terms of any waiver, modification, forgiveness, postponement or indulgence with respect to any of the Mortgage Loans will be included in the Servicing Certificate, and such Mortgage Loans will not be considered "delinquent" for the purposes of the Basic Documents so long as the Mortgagor complies with the terms of such waiver, modification, forgiveness, postponement or indulgence. (b) The Servicer shall establish a Custodial Account, which shall be an Eligible Account, titled "GMACM Home Equity Loan Trust Series 2006-HE2," in which the Servicer shall deposit or cause to be deposited any amounts representing payments and collections in respect of the Initial Mortgage Loans received by it subsequent to or on the Cut-Off Date or, with respect to the Subsequent Mortgage Loans, the Subsequent Cut-Off Date (other than in respect of the payments referred to in the following paragraph), within two Business Days following receipt thereof (or otherwise on or prior to the Closing Date), including the following payments and collections received or made by it (without duplication): (i) all payments of principal of or interest on the Mortgage Loans received or advanced by the Servicer, net of any portion of the interest thereof retained by any Subservicer as subservicing fees; (ii) the aggregate Repurchase Price of the Mortgage Loans purchased by the Servicer pursuant to Section 3.15; (iii) Net Liquidation Proceeds, net of any related Foreclosure Profit and all Subsequent Net Recovery Amounts; (iv) all proceeds of any Mortgage Loans repurchased by a Seller pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, and all Substitution Adjustment Amounts required to be deposited in connection with the substitution of an Eligible Substitute Loan pursuant to the Purchase Agreement; (v) Insurance Proceeds, other than Net Liquidation Proceeds, resulting from any insurance policy maintained on a Mortgaged Property; and (vi) amounts required to be paid by the Servicer pursuant to Section 8.08; provided, however, that with respect to each Collection Period, the Servicer shall be permitted to retain from payments in respect of interest on the Mortgage Loans, the Servicing Fee for such Collection Period. The foregoing requirements respecting deposits to the Custodial Account are exclusive, it being understood that, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer need not deposit in the Custodial Account amounts representing Foreclosure Profits, fees (including annual fees) or late charge penalties, payable by Mortgagors (such amounts to be retained as additional servicing compensation in accordance with Section 3.09 hereof), or amounts received by the Servicer for the accounts of Mortgagors for application towards the payment of taxes, insurance premiums, assessments and similar items. In the event any amount not required to be deposited in the Custodial Account is so deposited, the Servicer may at any time withdraw such amount from the Custodial Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. The Servicer shall retain all Foreclosure Profits as additional servicing compensation. The Servicer, in its sole discretion, may deposit into the Custodial Account, Servicer Advances, representing installments of principal of or interest on Mortgage Loans that were delinquent as of the end of any Collection Period, provided that the Servicer reasonably believes that such amounts will be recoverable from Collections on the related Mortgage Loan. If the Servicer makes any such Servicer Advances, the Servicer shall be entitled to reimburse itself by withdrawing from the Custodial Account, as provided herein, any amounts so advanced. The Servicer may cause the institution maintaining the Custodial Account to invest any funds in the Custodial Account in Permitted Investments (including obligations of the Servicer or any of its Affiliates, if such obligations otherwise qualify as Permitted Investments), which investments shall mature not later than the Business Day preceding the next succeeding Payment Date, and which investments shall not be sold or disposed of prior to maturity. In addition, no such Permitted Investment shall be purchased at a price in excess of par. Except as provided above, all income and gain realized from any such investment shall inure to the benefit of the Servicer and shall be subject to its withdrawal or order from time to time. The amount of any losses incurred in respect of the principal amount of any such investments shall be deposited in the Custodial Account by the Servicer out of its own funds immediately as realized. (c) The Servicer shall require each Subservicer to hold all funds constituting collections on the Mortgage Loans, pending remittance thereof to the Servicer, in one or more accounts meeting the requirements of an Eligible Account, and shall require all such funds to be invested in Permitted Investments, unless all such collections are remitted on a daily basis to the Servicer for deposit into the Custodial Account. Section 3.03 Withdrawals from the Custodial Account. The Servicer shall, from time to time as provided herein, make withdrawals from the Custodial Account of amounts on deposit therein pursuant to Section 3.02 that are attributable to the Mortgage Loans for the following purposes: (a) on each Determination Date, the Servicer shall determine the aggregate amounts to be withdrawn from the Custodial Account and applied pursuant to Section 3.05(a) of the Indenture and, prior to close of business on the Business Day prior to the related Payment Date (provided, however, that the Indenture Trustee shall not be required to invest any amounts deposited into the Note Payment Account after 1:00 p.m.), shall withdraw such amounts from the Custodial Account and deposit such amounts into the Note Payment Account to be distributed by the Paying Agent in accordance with and in the order or priority set forth in Section 3.05(a) of the Indenture for such Payment Date, in accordance with the Servicing Certificate; (b) to pay to itself any monthly payments received from the Mortgagors, the amount of such payment that represents interest accrued on the related Mortgage Loan for any period prior to the Cut-Off Date; (c) to the extent deposited to the Custodial Account, to reimburse itself or the related Subservicer for previously unreimbursed expenses incurred in maintaining individual insurance policies pursuant to Section 3.04, or Liquidation Expenses, paid pursuant to Section 3.07 or otherwise reimbursable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (to the extent not payable pursuant to Section 3.09), such withdrawal right being limited to amounts received on particular Mortgage Loans (other than any Repurchase Price in respect thereof) that represent late recoveries of the payments for which such advances were made, or from related Net Liquidation Proceeds or the proceeds of the purchase of such Mortgage Loan; (d) to pay to itself out of each payment received on account of interest on a Mortgage Loan as contemplated by Section 3.09, an amount equal to the related Servicing Fee and the Recovery Fee (to the extent not retained pursuant to Section 3.02 or 3.07), and to pay to any Subservicer any subservicing fees not previously withheld by such Subservicer; (e) to the extent deposited in the Custodial Account, to pay to itself as additional servicing compensation any (i) interest or investment income earned on funds deposited in the Custodial Account that it is entitled to withdraw pursuant to Sections 3.02(b) and 5.01, and (ii) Foreclosure Profits (to the extent permitted by law); (f) to pay to itself or a Seller, with respect to any Mortgage Loan or property acquired in respect thereof that has been purchased or otherwise transferred to such Seller, the Servicer or other entity, all amounts received thereon and not required to be distributed to Securityholders as of the date on which the related Purchase Price or Repurchase Price is determined; (g) to withdraw any other amount deposited in the Custodial Account that was not required to be deposited therein pursuant to Section 3.02; (h) to pay to itself, with respect to any Mortgage Loan for which it has made a Servicer Advance of delinquent principal or interest, any previously unreimbursed Servicer Advances of such amounts theretofore made to the extent of receipts of late recoveries of such payments from the related Mortgagors, out of related Net Liquidation Proceeds or the proceeds of the purchase of such Mortgage Loans; (i) to reimburse itself for the amount of any investment earnings advanced prior to maturity pursuant to Section 5.01, to the extent not reimbursed from earnings received on the related investment at maturity; (j) at its option, for so long as it is the sole Certificateholder, to pay to itself from amounts otherwise required to be remitted to the Distribution Account in accordance with Section 3.05(a)(xvi) of the Indenture, all amounts payable to it as a Certificateholder on the related Payment Date, and (k) to reimburse itself for Servicer Advances of delinquent principal or interest on a Mortgage Loan or other advances that are made pursuant to this Agreement that are not reimbursed pursuant to clauses (c) or (h) of this Section 3.03. Since, in connection with withdrawals pursuant to clauses (c), (d), (f) and (h), 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, on a Mortgage Loan by Mortgage Loan basis, for the purpose of justifying any withdrawal from the Custodial Account pursuant to such clauses. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Servicer shall be entitled to reimburse itself for any previously unreimbursed expenses incurred pursuant to Section 3.07 or otherwise reimbursable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement that the Servicer determines to be otherwise nonrecoverable (except with respect to any Mortgage Loan as to which the Repurchase Price has been paid), by withdrawal from the Custodial Account of amounts on deposit therein attributable to the Mortgage Loans on any Business Day prior to the Payment Date succeeding the date of such determination. Section 3.04 Maintenance of Hazard Insurance; Property Protection Expenses. To the extent permitted under the related Mortgage Note and Mortgage, and to the extent the Servicer receives notice that a hazard insurance policy has been cancelled, the Servicer shall cause to be maintained for each Mortgage Loan hazard insurance naming the Servicer or related Subservicer as loss payee thereunder providing extended coverage in an amount which is at least equal to the lesser of (i) the maximum insurable value of the improvements securing such Mortgage Loan from time to time or (ii) the combined principal balance owing on such Mortgage Loan and any mortgage loan senior to such Mortgage Loan from time to time; provided, however, that such coverage may not be less than the minimum amount required to fully compensate for any loss or damage on a replacement cost basis. The Servicer shall use its best efforts to monitor that hazard insurance is maintained as described in the previous sentence in the same manner as it would for mortgage loans in its own portfolio. The Servicer shall also cause to be maintained on property acquired upon foreclosure, or deed in lieu of foreclosure, of any Mortgage Loan, fire insurance with extended coverage in an amount which is at least equal to the amount necessary to avoid the application of any co-insurance clause contained in the related hazard insurance policy. Amounts collected by the Servicer under any such policies (other than amounts to be applied to the restoration or repair of the related Mortgaged Property or property thus acquired or amounts released to the Mortgagor in accordance with the Servicer's normal servicing procedures) shall be deposited in the Custodial Account to the extent called for by Section 3.02. In cases in which any Mortgaged Property is located at any time during the life of a Mortgage Loan in a federally designated flood area, to the extent permitted under the related Mortgage Note and Mortgage, and to the extent the Servicer receives notice that the related flood insurance has been cancelled, the hazard insurance to be maintained for the related Mortgage Loan shall include flood insurance (to the extent available). All such flood insurance shall be in amounts equal to the lesser of (i) the amount required to compensate for any loss or damage to the related Mortgaged Property on a replacement cost basis and (ii) the maximum amount of such insurance available for such Mortgaged Property under the national flood insurance program (assuming that the area in which such Mortgaged Property is located is participating in such program). The Servicer shall use its best efforts to monitor such flood insurance as described in the previous sentence in the same manner as it would for mortgage loans in its own portfolio. The Servicer shall be under no obligation to require that any Mortgagor maintain earthquake or other additional insurance and shall be under no obligation itself to maintain any such additional insurance on property acquired in respect of a Mortgage Loan, other than pursuant to such applicable laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force and as shall require such additional insurance. If the Servicer shall obtain and maintain a blanket policy consistent with its general mortgage servicing activities insuring against hazard losses on all of the Mortgage Loans, it shall conclusively be deemed to have satisfied its obligations as set forth in the first sentence of this Section 3.04, it being understood and agreed that such policy may contain a deductible clause, in which case the Servicer shall, in the event that there shall not have been maintained on the related Mortgaged Property a policy complying with the first sentence of this Section 3.04 and there shall have been a loss which would have been covered by such policy, deposit in the Custodial Account the amount not otherwise payable under the blanket policy because of such deductible clause. Any such deposit by the Servicer shall be made on the last Business Day of the Collection Period in the month in which payments under any such policy would have been deposited in the Custodial Account. In connection with its activities as servicer of the Mortgage Loans, the Servicer agrees to present, on behalf of itself, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, claims under any such blanket policy. Section 3.05 Modification Agreements. The Servicer or the related Subservicer, as the case may be, shall be entitled to (a) execute assumption agreements, substitution agreements, and instruments of satisfaction or cancellation or of partial or full release or discharge, or any other document contemplated by this Agreement and other comparable instruments with respect to the Mortgage Loans and with respect to the related Mortgaged Properties (and the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee each shall promptly execute any such documents on request of the Servicer) and (b) approve the granting of an easement thereon in favor of another Person, any alteration or demolition of such Mortgaged Properties 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 Loans, that the security for, and the timely and full collectability of, such Mortgage Loans would not be adversely affected thereby. A partial release pursuant to this Section 3.05 shall be permitted only if the CLTV for the related Mortgage Loan after such partial release does not exceed the CLTV for such Mortgage Loan as of the related Cut-Off Date, and provided further that the Servicer and the Enhancer have received an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such partial release will not result in an Adverse REMIC Event. Any fee collected by the Servicer or the related Subservicer for processing such request will be retained by the Servicer or such Subservicer as additional servicing compensation. Section 3.06 Trust Estate; Related Documents. (a) When required by the provisions of this Agreement, the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee shall execute instruments to release property from the terms of the Trust Agreement, Indenture or Custodial Agreement, as applicable, or convey the Issuer's or the Indenture Trustee's interest in the same, in a manner and under circumstances that are not inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement. No party relying upon an instrument executed by the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee as provided in this Section 3.06 shall be bound to ascertain the Issuer's or the Indenture Trustee's authority, inquire into the satisfaction of any conditions precedent or see to the application of any moneys. (b) If from time to time any written assurance, assumption agreement or substitution agreement or other similar agreement shall be executed pursuant to Section 3.05, the Servicer shall check that each of such documents purports to be an original executed copy (or a copy of the original executed document if the original executed copy has been submitted for recording and has not yet been returned) and, if so, shall file such documents, and upon receipt of the original executed copy from the applicable recording office or receipt of a copy thereof certified by the applicable recording office shall file such originals or certified copies, with the Related Documents held by the Servicer. (c) Upon receipt of a Request for Release from the Servicer, substantially in the form of Exhibit C hereto, to the effect that a Mortgage Loan has been the subject of a final payment or a prepayment in full and such Mortgage Loan has been terminated or that substantially all Net Liquidation Proceeds that have been determined by the Servicer in its reasonable judgment to be finally recoverable have been recovered, and upon deposit to the Custodial Account of such final monthly payment, prepayment in full together with accrued and unpaid interest to the date of such payment with respect to such Mortgage Loan or, if applicable, Net Liquidation Proceeds, the Custodian shall promptly release the Related Documents held by the Custodian to the Servicer. The Indenture Trustee shall execute such Related Documents, along with such documents as the Servicer or the related Mortgagor may request to evidence satisfaction and discharge of such Mortgage Loan, upon request of the Servicer. If from time to time and as appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of any Mortgage Loan, the Servicer requests the Custodian to release the Related Documents held by the Custodian and delivers to the Custodian a trust receipt reasonably satisfactory to the Custodian and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Servicer, the Custodian shall release such Related Documents to the Servicer. If such Mortgage Loans shall be liquidated and the Custodian receives a certificate from the Servicer as provided above, then, upon request of the Servicer, the Custodian shall release the trust receipt to the Servicer. Section 3.07 Realization Upon Defaulted Mortgage Loans. With respect to any Mortgage Loan that comes into and continues in default, the Servicer shall decide whether to (i) foreclose upon the related Mortgaged Property, (ii) write off the unpaid Principal Balance thereof as bad debt, (iii) take a deed in lieu of foreclosure, (iv) accept a short sale (a payoff of the Mortgage Loan for an amount less than the total amount contractually owed in order to facilitate a sale of the Mortgaged Property by the Mortgagor), (v) permit a short refinancing (a payoff of the Mortgage Loan for an amount less than the total amount contractually owed in order to facilitate refinancing transactions by the Mortgagor not involving a sale of the Mortgaged Property), (vi) arrange for a repayment plan, (vii) agree to a modification in accordance with this Agreement or (viii) take an unsecured note in each case subject to the rights of any related first Lien holder; provided, that in connection with the foregoing, if the Servicer has actual knowledge that any Mortgaged Property is affected by hazardous or toxic wastes or substances and that the acquisition of such Mortgaged Property would not be commercially reasonable, then the Servicer shall not cause the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee to acquire title to such Mortgaged Property in a foreclosure or similar proceeding. In connection with such decision, the Servicer shall follow such practices (including, in the case of any default on a related senior mortgage loan, the advancing of funds to correct such default if deemed to be appropriate by the Servicer) and procedures as it shall deem necessary or advisable and as shall be normal and usual in its general mortgage servicing activities and as shall be required or permitted by the Program Guide; provided, that the Servicer shall not be liable in any respect hereunder if the Servicer is acting in connection with any such foreclosure or attempted foreclosure which is not completed or other conversion in a manner that is consistent with the provisions of this Agreement. The foregoing is subject to the proviso that the Servicer shall not be required to expend its own funds in connection with any foreclosure or attempted foreclosure which is not completed or towards the correction of any default on a related senior mortgage loan or restoration of any property unless it shall determine that such expenditure will increase the related Net Liquidation Proceeds. In the event of a determination by the Servicer that any such expenditure previously made pursuant to this Section 3.07 will not be reimbursable from Net Liquidation Proceeds, the Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement of its funds so expended pursuant to Section 3.03. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, a Mortgage Loan may be deemed to be finally liquidated if substantially all amounts expected by the Servicer to be received in connection therewith have been received; provided, however, that the Servicer may continue to pursue recovery of such Mortgage Loan and any Recovery Amount with respect to any such Mortgage Loan shall be deposited into the Custodial Account. If the Servicer continues to pursue recovery, the Servicer shall be entitled to the Recovery Fee with respect to that Mortgage Loan and to be reimbursed for any Servicer Advances and expenses from Recovery Amounts with respect to such Mortgage Loan as though such Mortgage Loan continued to be an Outstanding Mortgage Loan hereunder. For purposes of determining the amount of any Net Liquidation Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds or other unscheduled collections, the Servicer may take into account minimal amounts of additional receipts expected to be received or any estimated additional liquidation expenses expected to be incurred in connection with such Mortgage Loan. In the event that title to any Mortgaged Property is acquired in foreclosure or by deed in lieu of foreclosure, the deed or certificate of sale shall be issued to the Indenture Trustee, which shall hold the same on behalf of the Issuer in accordance with Section 3.13 of the Indenture. Notwithstanding any such acquisition of title and cancellation of the related Mortgage Loan, such Mortgaged Property shall (except as otherwise expressly provided herein) be considered to be an outstanding Mortgage Loan held as an asset of the Issuer until such time as such property shall be sold. Consistent with the foregoing for purposes of all calculations hereunder, so long as the related Mortgage Loan shall be considered to be an outstanding Mortgage Loan, it shall be assumed that, notwithstanding that the indebtedness evidenced by the related Mortgage Note shall have been discharged, such Mortgage Note in effect at the time of any such acquisition of title before any adjustment thereto by reason of any bankruptcy or similar proceeding or any moratorium or similar waiver or grace period will remain in effect. Any proceeds from foreclosure proceedings or the purchase or repurchase of any Mortgage Loan pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, as well as any recovery resulting from a collection of Net Liquidation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds, shall be applied in the following order of priority: first, to reimburse the Servicer or the related Subservicer in accordance with this Section 3.07; second, to pay the Servicer or the related Subservicer all Servicing Fees payable therefrom; third, to pay accrued and unpaid interest on such Mortgage Loan, at the Net Loan Rate to the Payment Date on which such amounts are to be deposited in the Note Payment Account or Distribution Account; and fourth, as a recovery of principal on such Mortgage Loan. Any remaining amount shall constitute Foreclosure Profits. In the event that the Trust acquires any Mortgaged Property as aforesaid or otherwise in connection with a default or imminent default on a Mortgage Loan, the Servicer on behalf the Trust shall dispose of such Mortgaged Property as soon as practicable, giving due consideration to the interests of the Noteholders, the Certificateholders and the Enhancer, but in all cases within three full years after the taxable year of its acquisition by the Trust for purposes of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code (or such shorter period as may be necessary under applicable state (including any state in which such property is located) law to maintain the status of any REMIC as a REMIC under applicable state law and avoid taxes resulting from such property failing to be foreclosure property under applicable state law) or, at the expense of the Trust, request, more than 60 days before the day on which such grace period would otherwise expire, an extension of such grace period unless the Servicer obtains for the Indenture Trustee an Opinion of Counsel, addressed to the Indenture Trustee, the Enhancer and the Servicer, to the effect that the holding by the Trust of such Mortgaged Property subsequent to such period will not result in the imposition of taxes on "prohibited transactions" as defined in Section 860F of the Code or cause the Trust to fail to qualify as a REMIC (for federal (or any applicable State or local) income tax purposes) at any time that any Certificates are outstanding, in which case the Trust may continue to hold such Mortgaged Property (subject to any conditions contained in such Opinion of Counsel). The Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed from the Custodial Account for any costs incurred in obtaining such Opinion of Counsel, as provided in Section 3.03. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Mortgaged Property acquired by the Trust shall be rented (or allowed to continue to be rented) or otherwise used by or on behalf of the Trust in such a manner or pursuant to any terms that would (i) cause such Mortgaged Property to fail to qualify as "foreclosure property" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code or (ii) subject any REMIC to the imposition of any federal income taxes on the income earned from such Mortgaged Property, including any taxes imposed by reason of Section 860G(c) of the Code, unless the Servicer has agreed to indemnify and hold harmless the Trust and the Enhancer with respect to the imposition of any such taxes. Section 3.08 Issuer and Indenture Trustee to Cooperate. On or before each Payment Date, the Servicer will notify the Indenture Trustee or the Custodian, with a copy to the Issuer, of the termination of or the payment in full and the termination of any Mortgage Loan during the preceding Collection Period. Upon receipt of payment in full, the Servicer is authorized to execute, pursuant to the authorization contained in Section 3.01, an instrument of satisfaction regarding the related Mortgage, which instrument of satisfaction shall be recorded by the Servicer if required by applicable law and be delivered to the Person entitled thereto and to cause the removal from the registration on the MERS(R)System of such Mortgage. It is understood and agreed that any expenses incurred in connection with such instrument of satisfaction or transfer shall be reimbursed from amounts deposited in the Custodial Account. From time to time and as appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of any Mortgage Loan, the Custodian shall, upon request of the Servicer and delivery to the Custodian, with a copy to the Issuer, of a Request for Release, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C, signed by a Servicing Officer, release or cause to be released the related Mortgage Note to the Servicer. The Issuer or Indenture Trustee shall promptly execute such documents, in the forms provided by the Servicer, as shall be necessary for the prosecution of any such proceedings or the taking of other servicing actions. Such trust receipt shall obligate the Servicer to return such Mortgage Note to the Custodian (as specified in such receipt) 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 specified above, such trust receipt shall be released to the Servicer. In order to facilitate the foreclosure of the Mortgage securing any Mortgage Loan that is in default following recordation of the related Assignment of Mortgage in accordance with the provisions of the Purchase Agreement, the Indenture Trustee or the Issuer shall, if so requested in writing by the Servicer, promptly execute an appropriate assignment in the form provided by the Servicer to assign such Mortgage Loan for the purpose of collection to the Servicer (any such assignment shall unambiguously indicate that the assignment is for the purpose of collection only), and, upon such assignment, such assignee for collection will thereupon bring all required actions in its own name and otherwise enforce the terms of such Mortgage Loan and deposit or credit the Net Liquidation Proceeds, exclusive of Foreclosure Profits, received with respect thereto into the Custodial Account. In the event that all delinquent payments due under any such Mortgage Loan are paid by the Mortgagor and any other defaults are cured, then the assignee for collection shall promptly reassign such Mortgage Loan to the Indenture Trustee and return all Related Documents to the place where the related Mortgage File was being maintained. In connection with the Issuer's obligation to cooperate as provided in this Section 3.08 and all other provisions of this Agreement requiring the Issuer to authorize or permit any actions to be taken with respect to the Mortgage Loans, the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans and as assignee of record of the Mortgage Loans on behalf of the Issuer pursuant to Section 3.13 of the Indenture, expressly agrees, on behalf of the Issuer, to take all such actions on behalf of the Issuer and to promptly execute and return all instruments reasonably required by the Servicer in connection therewith; provided, that if the Servicer requests a signature of the Indenture Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, then the Servicer shall deliver to the Indenture Trustee an Officer's Certificate stating that such signature is necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties under this Agreement. Section 3.09 Servicing Compensation; Payment of Certain Expenses by Servicer. The Servicer shall be entitled to receive the Servicing Fee in accordance with Section 3.03 as compensation for its services in connection with servicing the Mortgage Loans. Moreover, late payment charges and other receipts not required to be deposited in the Custodial Account as specified in Section 3.02 shall be retained by the Servicer as additional servicing compensation. The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its activities hereunder (including payment of all other fees and expenses not expressly stated hereunder to be for the account of the Securityholders), including the fees and expenses of the Owner Trustee, Indenture Trustee and the Custodian, and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor. Section 3.10 Annual Statement as to Compliance. (a) The Servicer will deliver to the Depositor, the Credit Enhancer and the Indenture Trustee on or before the earlier of (a) March 31 of each year or (b) with respect to any calendar year during which the Depositor's annual report on Form 10-K is required to be filed in accordance with the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission, the date on which the annual report on Form 10-K is required to be filed in accordance with the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission, a servicer compliance certificate, signed by an authorized officer of the Servicer, as described in Item 1123 of Regulation AB, to the effect that: (i) A review of the Servicer's activities during the reporting period and of its performance under this Servicing 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 of its obligations under this Servicing Agreement in all materials respects throughout the reporting period or, if there has been a failure to fulfill any such obligation in any material respect, specifying each such failure known to such officer and the nature and status thereof. The Servicer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain from all other parties participating in the servicing function any additional certifications required under Item 1123 of Regulation AB to the extent required to be included in a Report on Form 10-K; provided, however, that a failure to obtain such certifications shall not be a breach of the Servicer's duties hereunder if any such party fails to deliver such a certification. (b) The Servicer shall deliver to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, with a copy to the Enhancer, promptly after having obtained knowledge thereof, but in no event later than five Business Days thereafter, written notice by means of an Officer's Certificate of any event which with the giving of notice or the lapse of time or both, would become a Servicing Default. Section 3.11 Annual Independent Public Accountants' Servicing Report. On or before the earlier of (a) March 31 of each year or (b) with respect to any calendar year during which the Depositor's annual report on Form 10-K is required to be filed in accordance with the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission, the date on which the annual report is required to be filed in accordance with the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission, the Servicer at its expense shall cause a firm of independent public accountants, which shall be members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, to furnish a report to the Depositor and the Indenture Trustee the attestation required under Item 1122(b) of Regulation AB. In rendering such statement, such firm may rely, as to matters relating to the direct servicing of Home Loans by Subservicers, upon comparable statements for examinations conducted by independent public accountants substantially in accordance with standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (rendered within one year of such statement) with respect to such Subservicers. Section 3.12 Access to Certain Documentation and Information Regarding the Mortgage Loans. Whenever required by statute or regulation, the Servicer shall provide to the Enhancer, any Securityholder upon reasonable request (or a regulator for a Securityholder) or the Indenture Trustee, reasonable access to the documentation regarding the Mortgage Loans. Such access shall be afforded without charge, but only upon reasonable request and during normal business hours at the offices of the Servicer. Nothing in this Section 3.12 shall derogate from the obligation of the Servicer to observe any applicable law prohibiting disclosure of information regarding Mortgagors, and the failure of the Servicer to provide access as provided in this Section 3.12 as a result of such obligation shall not constitute a breach of this Section 3.12. Section 3.13 Maintenance of Certain Servicing Insurance Policies. The Servicer shall, during the term of its service as servicer, maintain in force and effect (i) a policy or policies of insurance covering errors and omissions in the performance of its obligations as Servicer hereunder and (ii) a fidelity bond in respect of its officers, employees or agents. Each such policy or policies and fidelity bond shall be at least equal to the coverage that would be required by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, whichever is greater, for Persons performing servicing for mortgage loans purchased by such entity. Section 3.14 Information Required by the Internal Revenue Service and Reports of Foreclosures and Abandonments of Mortgaged Property. The Servicer shall prepare and deliver all federal and state information reports with respect to the Mortgage Loans when and as required by all applicable state and federal income tax laws. In particular, with respect to the requirement under Section 6050J of the Code to the effect that the Servicer or Subservicer shall make reports of foreclosures and abandonments of any mortgaged property for each year beginning in 2005, the Servicer or Subservicer shall file reports relating to each instance occurring during the previous calendar year in which the Servicer (a) on behalf of the Issuer, acquired an interest in any Mortgaged Property through foreclosure or other comparable conversion in full or partial satisfaction of a Mortgage Loan, or (b) knew or had reason to know that any Mortgaged Property had been abandoned. The reports from the Servicer or Subservicer shall be in form and substance sufficient to meet the reporting requirements imposed by Section 6050J and Section 6050H (reports relating to mortgage interest received) of the Code. Section 3.15 Optional Repurchase or Transfer of Mortgage Loans. (a) Notwithstanding any provision in Section 3.07 to the contrary, the Servicer, at its option and in its sole discretion, may repurchase any Mortgage Loan that is delinquent in payment by a period of ninety (90) days or longer for a price equal to the Repurchase Price, provided that any such repurchase shall occur only during the 60-day period commencing on the first day of the next calendar month. (b) The Servicer shall repurchase any Mortgage Loan for a price equal to the Repurchase Price (i) if the related Mortgage did not have a Lien senior to it as of the related Cut-Off Date, and, at the request of the related Mortgagor, the Servicer at its option and in its sole discretion agrees to the placement of a Lien on the related Mortgaged Property senior to that of such Mortgage or (ii) at the request of the Mortgagor, the Servicer agrees to the refinancing of the Lien senior to that of the related Mortgage resulting in a CLTV that does not satisfy the conditions set forth in Section 3.01(a) herein. (c) Subject to the conditions set forth below, the Servicer, upon receipt of written notice and direction from the Issuer, shall cause the retransfer of Mortgage Loans from the Trust Estate to the Issuer as of the close of business on a Payment Date (the "Transfer Date"). On the fifth Business Day (the "Transfer Notice Date") prior to the Transfer Date designated in such notice, the Servicer shall give the Indenture Trustee, the Rating Agencies and the Enhancer a notice of the proposed retransfer that contains a list of the Mortgage Loans to be retransferred. Such retransfers of Mortgage Loans shall be permitted upon satisfaction of the following conditions: (i) On the Transfer Date, the Overcollateralization Amount (after giving effect to the removal from the Trust Estate of the Mortgage Loans proposed to be retransferred) will equal or exceed the Overcollateralization Target Amount; (ii) On or before the Transfer Date, the Servicer shall have delivered to the Indenture Trustee a revised Mortgage Loan Schedule showing that the Mortgages Loans transferred to the Certificateholders are no longer owned by the Trust Estate; (iii) The Servicer shall represent and warrant that the Mortgage Loans to be removed from the Trust Estate were selected at random and the Servicer shall have received the consent of the Enhancer as to the selection of the particular Mortgage Loans to be removed; and (iv) The Servicer shall have delivered to the Indenture Trustee and the Enhancer an officer's certificate certifying that the items set forth in subparagraphs (i) through (v), inclusive, have been performed or are true and correct, as the case may be. The Indenture Trustee may conclusively rely on such officer's certificate, shall have no duty to make inquiries with regard to the matters set forth therein and shall incur no liability in so relying. The Servicer shall not be permitted to effect the retransfer of any Mortgage Loan except under the conditions specified above. Upon receiving the requisite notice and direction from the Issuer, the Servicer shall perform in a timely manner those acts required of it, as specified above. Upon satisfaction of the above conditions, on the Transfer Date the Indenture Trustee shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the Issuer a written itemization of each Mortgage Loan being transferred, together with the Mortgage File for each such Mortgage Loan, and the Indenture Trustee shall execute and deliver to the Issuer or its designee such other documents prepared by the Servicer as shall be reasonably necessary to transfer such Mortgage Loans to the Certificateholders. Any such transfer of the Trust Estate's right, title and interest in and to Mortgage Loans shall be without recourse, representation or warranty by or of the Indenture Trustee or the Trust Estate to the Issuer or its designee. Section 3.16 Reserved. Section 3.17 Reserved Section 3.18 Pre-Funding Account. (a) No later than the Closing Date, the Indenture Trustee shall establish and maintain on behalf of itself one or more segregated trust accounts, which shall be Eligible Accounts, titled "Pre-Funding Account, JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, as Indenture Trustee for GMACM Home Equity Loan Trust 2006-HE2" (the "Pre-Funding Account"). Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Pre-Funding Account shall not be an asset of any REMIC. To the extent that the Pre-Funding Account constitutes a reserve fund for federal income tax purposes, (1) it shall be an outside reserve fund and not an asset any REMIC, (2) it shall be owned by GMACM, as Seller and (3) amounts transferred any REMIC to the Pre-Funding Account shall be treated as transferred to GMACM, as Seller, or any successor, all within the meaning of Section 1.860G-2(h) of the Treasury Regulations. On the Closing Date, GMACM shall deposit into the Pre-Funding Account an amount equal to the Original Pre-Funded Amount from the proceeds of the sale of the Securities. On each Subsequent Transfer Date, the Servicer shall instruct the Indenture Trustee in writing to withdraw from the Pre-Funding Account an amount equal to the aggregate Principal Balance as of the related Subsequent Cut-Off Date of the Subsequent Mortgage Loans to be sold to the Trust on such Subsequent Transfer Date and purchased with funds on deposit in the Pre-Funding Account, and to pay such amount to or upon the order of GMACM upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth in this Agreement, in the Purchase Agreement and in the related Subsequent Transfer Agreement with respect thereto. (b) If the Pre-Funded Amount has not been reduced to zero at the close of business on the last day of the Pre-Funding Period, after giving effect to any withdrawal therefrom on such day, any remaining Pre-Funded Amount shall be deposited in the Note Payment Account and applied as a principal distribution on the Notes on the next succeeding Payment Date in accordance with the terms of the Indenture. (c) The Servicer may cause the institution maintaining the Pre-Funding Account to invest any funds therein in Permitted Investments having a maturity of up to 90 days or maturing or otherwise available not later than the Business Day preceding the related Payment Date on which funds are scheduled to be withdrawn to purchase Subsequent Mortgage Loans; provided, that any investment in an obligation of the institution with which the Pre-Funding Account is maintained may mature on or before 10:30 a.m., New York time, on such Payment Date; and provided further, that no such investment may be sold or disposed of prior to maturity. In addition, no such Permitted Investment shall be purchased at a price in excess of par. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event investment earnings have not matured on any Payment Date, the amount of such earnings accrued as of such Payment Date shall be advanced by the Servicer for deposit into the Note Payment Account (which advance shall be reimbursed to the Servicer from such investment earnings at maturity). At any time when the Indenture Trustee is maintaining the Pre-Funding Account, any request by the Servicer to invest funds on deposit therein shall be in writing, delivered to the Indenture Trustee at or before 10:30 a.m., New York time, if such investment is to be made on such day. The Servicer shall certify that the requested investment is a Permitted Investment maturing at or prior to the time required hereby. Any such investment shall be registered in the name of the Indenture Trustee or its nominee, and to the extent that any such investment is certificated, such investment shall be maintained with the Indenture Trustee at its Corporate Trust Office. All net income or other gain received from any such investment shall be deposited into or credited to the Note Payment Account, and may be withdrawn therefrom in accordance with Section 3.05 of the Indenture. In no event shall the Indenture Trustee be liable for any investment losses on Permitted Investments held in or credited to the Pre-Funding Account, provided that such investments are made in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Indenture Trustee is not the obligor under the Permitted Investment. Section 3.19 Capitalized Interest Account. (a) No later than the Closing Date, the Indenture Trustee shall establish and maintain on behalf of itself one or more segregated trust accounts, which shall be Eligible Accounts, titled "Capitalized Interest Account, JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, as Indenture Trustee for GMACM Home Equity Loan Trust 2006-HE2" (the "Capitalized Interest Account"). The Indenture Trustee shall, promptly upon receipt, deposit in the Capitalized Interest Account and retain therein the Interest Coverage Amount. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Capitalized Interest Account shall not be an asset of any REMIC. To the extent that the Capitalized Interest Account constitutes a reserve fund for federal income tax purposes, (1) it shall be an outside reserve fund and not an asset any REMIC, (2) it shall be owned by GMACM, as Seller and (3) amounts transferred any REMIC to the Capitalized Interest Account shall be treated as transferred to GMACM, as Seller, or any successor, all within the meaning of Section 1.860G-2(h) of the Treasury Regulations. If the Indenture Trustee shall not have received an investment direction from GMACM, the Indenture Trustee shall invest funds on deposit in the Capitalized Interest Account in Permitted Investments of the kind described in clause (v) of the definition of Permitted Investments having a maturity date no later than the next succeeding Payment Date. In addition, no such Permitted Investment shall be purchased at a price in excess of par. The Servicer shall be entitled to retain any investment earnings on amounts on deposit in the Capitalized Interest Account and shall deposit into the Capitalized Interest Account the amount of any net loss incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment immediately upon realization of such loss without any right of reimbursement therefor. The Servicer shall be the owner of the Capitalized Interest Account and shall report all items of income, deduction, gain or loss arising therefrom. In no event shall the Indenture Trustee be liable for any investment losses on Permitted Investments held in or credited to the Capitalized Interest Account, provided that such investments are made in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Indenture Trustee is not the obligor under the Permitted Investment. (b) On each Payment Date during the Pre-Funding Period and on the Payment Date immediately after the end of the Pre-Funding Period, the Indenture Trustee, at the written direction of the Servicer, shall withdraw from the Capitalized Interest Account and deposit into the Note Payment Account an amount equal to the Capitalized Interest Requirement for such Payment Date. (c) In connection with each Subsequent Transfer Date occurring in the Pre-Funding Period, the Servicer, at its option, may recalculate the Interest Coverage Amount and shall notify the Indenture Trustee of such calculation taking into account the amount remaining in the Pre-Funding Account following the sale of Subsequent Mortgage Loans to the Trust on such date. The recomputed Interest Coverage Amount shall be not less than the amount necessary to cover the Capitalized Interest Requirement for each remaining Payment Date in the Pre-Funding Period. On any such Subsequent Transfer Date, GMACM shall instruct in writing the Indenture Trustee to pay to it from funds in the Capitalized Interest Account the excess of the amount on deposit therein over the recomputed Interest Coverage Amount notified to the Indenture Trustee. (d) Upon the earlier of (i) termination of the Trust Agreement in accordance with Section 8.01 thereof and (ii) the Payment Date following the end of the Pre-Funding Period, any amount remaining on deposit in the Capitalized Interest Account shall be withdrawn by the Indenture Trustee and paid to GMACM. Section 3.20 Enforcement of Due-on-Sale Clauses; Assumption and Modification Agreements; Certain Assignments. (a) When any Mortgaged Property is conveyed by the Mortgagor, the Servicer or Subservicer, to the extent it has knowledge of such conveyance, shall enforce any due-on-sale clause contained in any Mortgage Note or Mortgage, to the extent permitted under applicable law and governmental regulations, but only to the extent that such enforcement will not adversely affect or jeopardize coverage under any Required Insurance Policy. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (i) the Servicer shall not be deemed to be in default under this Section 3.20(a) by reason of any transfer or assumption which the Servicer is restricted by law from preventing; and (ii) if the Servicer determines that it is reasonably likely that any Mortgagor will bring, or if any Mortgagor does bring, legal action to declare invalid or otherwise avoid enforcement of a due-on-sale clause contained in any Mortgage Note or Mortgage, the Servicer shall not be required to enforce the due-on-sale clause or to contest such action. (b) Subject to the Servicer's duty to enforce any due-on-sale clause to the extent set forth in Section 3.20(a), in any case in which a Mortgaged Property is to be conveyed to a Person by a Mortgagor, and such Person is to enter into an assumption or modification agreement or supplement to the Mortgage Note or Mortgage which requires the signature of the Indenture Trustee, or if an instrument of release signed by the Indenture Trustee is required releasing the Mortgagor from liability on the Mortgage Loan, the Servicer is authorized, subject to the requirements of the sentence next following, to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Indenture Trustee, the assumption agreement with the Person to whom the Mortgaged Property is to be conveyed and such modification agreement or supplement to the Mortgage Note or Mortgage or other instruments as are reasonable or necessary to carry out the terms of the Mortgage Note or Mortgage or otherwise to comply with any applicable laws regarding assumptions or the transfer of the Mortgaged Property to such Person provided, however, none of such terms and requirements shall either (i) both (A) constitute a "significant modification" effecting an exchange or reissuance of such Mortgage Loan under the REMIC Provisions and (B) cause any REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC under the Code, or (subject to Section 11.01(f) of the Indenture), result in the imposition of any tax on "prohibited transactions" or (ii) constitute "contributions" after the start-up date under the REMIC Provisions. The Servicer shall execute and deliver such documents only if it reasonably determines that (i) its execution and delivery thereof will not conflict with or violate any terms of this Agreement or cause the unpaid balance and interest on the Mortgage Loan to be uncollectible in whole or in part, (ii) any required consents of insurers under any Required Insurance Policies have been obtained and (iii) subsequent to the closing of the transaction involving the assumption or transfer (A) such transaction will not adversely affect the coverage under any Required Insurance Policies, (B) the Mortgage Loan will fully amortize over the remaining term thereof, (C) no material term of the Mortgage Loan (including the interest rate on the Mortgage Loan) will be altered nor will the term of the Mortgage Loan be changed and (D) if the seller/transferor of the Mortgaged Property is to be released from liability on the Mortgage Loan, such release will not (based on the Servicer's or Subservicer's good faith determination) adversely affect the collectability of the Mortgage Loan. Upon receipt of appropriate instructions from the Servicer in accordance with the foregoing, the Indenture Trustee shall execute any necessary instruments for such assumption or substitution of liability as directed in writing by the Servicer. Upon the closing of the transactions contemplated by such documents, the Servicer shall cause the originals or true and correct copies of the assumption agreement, the release (if any), or the modification or supplement to the Mortgage Note or Mortgage to be delivered to the Indenture Trustee or the Custodian and deposited with the Mortgage File for such Mortgage Loan. Any fee collected by the Servicer or such related Subservicer for entering into an assumption or substitution of liability agreement will be retained by the Servicer or such Subservicer as additional servicing compensation. Section 3.21 Advance Facility. (a) The Servicer is hereby authorized to enter into any facility (an "Advance Facility") with any Person (any such Person, an "Advance Facility Counterparty"), without the consent of any party to this Agreement or the Enhancer, which provides that the Servicer may pledge or sell its rights to receive reimbursement of Servicer Advances pursuant to this Agreement ("Advance Reimbursement Rights") pursuant to credit facilities, repurchase facilities, or similar facilities providing liquidity for the funding of the Servicer Advances, including facilities providing that such Advance Facility Counterparty may make all or a portion of the Servicer Advances. Notwithstanding the existence of any Advance Facility under which an Advance Facility Counterparty agrees to fund Servicer Advances on the Servicer's behalf, the Servicer shall remain obligated pursuant to this Agreement to make any Servicer Advances as required by this Agreement, and shall not be relieved of such obligations by virtue of such Advance Facility. (b) If the Servicer enters into an Advance Facility, and for so long as an Advance Facility Counterparty remains entitled to receive reimbursement for any Servicer Advances ("Advance Reimbursement Amount"), then the Servicer shall identify such Advance Reimbursement Amount as received, consistently with the reimbursement rights set forth in Sections 3.03 of this Agreement, and shall remit such Advance Reimbursement Amount in accordance with the documentation establishing the Advance Facility to such Advance Facility Counterparty or to a trustee, agent or custodian (an "Advance Facility Trustee") designated by such Advance Facility Counterparty. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if so required pursuant to the terms of the Advance Facility, the Servicer may withdraw from the Custodial Account or direct the Indenture Trustee to withdraw, as applicable, and the Servicer shall, or if so directed, the Indenture Trustee is hereby authorized to and shall pay to the Advance Facility Counterparty or the Advance Facility Trustee the Advance Reimbursement Amount identified pursuant to the preceding sentence. (c) The Advance Reimbursement Amount shall consist solely of amounts in respect of Servicer Advances made with respect to the Mortgage Loans for which the Servicer would be permitted to reimburse itself in accordance with this Agreement, assuming the Servicer had made the related Servicer Advances. Any Advance Reimbursement Amount that the Servicer, in its capacity as Servicer, is entitled to be paid shall not be included in distributions to Noteholders. An Advance Facility Counterparty whose obligations are limited to the making of Servicer Advances will not be deemed to be a Subservicer under this Agreement or be required to meet the criteria for qualification as a Subservicer under this Agreement. (d) Any Advance Reimbursement Amount allocated to reimburse Servicer Advances made with respect to any particular Mortgage Loan shall be allocated to the reimbursement of the unreimbursed Servicer Advances made with respect to that Mortgage Loan on a "first-in, first out" ("FIFO") basis, such that the Advance Reimbursement Amount shall be applied to reimburse the Servicer Advance for that Mortgage Loan that was disbursed earliest in time first, and to reimburse the Servicer Advance for that Mortgage Loan that was disbursed latest in time, last. The Servicer shall provide to the related Advance Facility Counterparty or Advance Facility Trustee loan-by-loan information with respect to each Advance Reimbursement Amount remitted to such Advance Facility Counterparty or Advance Facility Trustee, to enable the Advance Facility Counterparty or Advance Facility Trustee to make the FIFO allocation of each such Advance Reimbursement Amount with respect to each Mortgage Loan. (e) Upon request of the Servicer, the Indenture Trustee agrees to execute such acknowledgments, certificates, and other documents recognizing the interests of any Advance Facility Counterparty in such Advance Reimbursement Rights as the Servicer may cause to be made subject to Advance Facilities pursuant to this Section 3.21. (f) The Indenture Trustee shall not, as a result of the existence of any Advance Facility, have any duty or liability with respect to the calculation of any Advance Reimbursement Amount nor have any responsibility to track or monitor the administration of the Advance Facility.

Any Person into which the Servicer may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Servicer shall be a party, or any Person succeeding to the business of the Servicer, shall be the successor of the Servicer 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. The Servicer may assign its rights and delegate its duties and obligations under this Agreement; provided, that the Person accepting such assignment or delegation shall be a Person qualified to service mortgage loans, is reasonably satisfactory to the Enhancer (provided, that such consent to assignment may not be unreasonably withheld), is willing to service the Mortgage Loans and executes and delivers to the Issuer (with a copy to the Enhancer) an agreement, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Enhancer, that contains an assumption by such Person of the due and punctual performance and observance of each covenant and condition to be performed or observed by the Servicer under this Agreement; and provided further, that no Rating Event will occur as a result of such assignment and delegation (as evidenced by a letter to such effect from each Rating Agency), if determined without regard to the Policy; and provided further, that the Owner Trustee shall receive an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such assignment or delegation will not result in an Adverse REMIC Event. Section 6.03 Limitation on Liability of the Servicer and Others. Neither the Servicer nor any of the directors or officers or employees or agents of the Servicer shall be under any liability to the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee or the Securityholders for any action taken or for refraining from the taking of any action in good faith pursuant to this Agreement; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect the Servicer or any such Person against any liability that would otherwise be imposed by reason of its willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties hereunder or by reason of its reckless disregard of its obligations and duties hereunder. The Servicer and any director or officer or employee or agent of the Servicer may rely in good faith on any document of any kind prima facie properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder. The Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Servicer shall be indemnified by the Issuer and held harmless against any loss, liability or expense incurred in connection with any legal action relating to this Agreement or the Securities, including any amount paid to the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee pursuant to Section 6.06(b), other than any loss, liability or expense related to any specific Mortgage Loan or Mortgage Loans (except as any such loss, liability or expense shall be otherwise reimbursable pursuant to this Agreement) and any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of its willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties hereunder or by reason of its reckless disregard of its obligations and duties hereunder. The Servicer shall not be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute or defend any legal action that is not incidental to its duties to service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with this Agreement, and that in its opinion may involve it in any expense or liability; provided, however, that the Servicer may in its sole discretion undertake any such action that it may deem necessary or desirable in respect of this Agreement, the rights and duties of the parties hereto and the interests of the Securityholders. In such event, the reasonable legal expenses and costs of such action and any liability resulting therefrom shall be expenses, costs and liabilities of the Issuer, and the Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed therefor. The Servicer's right to indemnity or reimbursement pursuant to this Section 6.03 shall survive any resignation or termination of the Servicer pursuant to Section 6.04 or 7.01 with respect to any losses, expenses, costs or liabilities arising prior to such resignation or termination (or arising from events that occurred prior to such resignation or termination). Section 6.04 Servicer Not to Resign. Subject to the provisions of Section 6.02, the Servicer shall not resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it except (a) upon determination that the performance of its obligations or duties hereunder are no longer permissible under applicable law or are in material conflict by reason of applicable law with any other activities carried on by it or its subsidiaries or Affiliates, the other activities of the Servicer so causing such a conflict being of a type and nature carried on by the Servicer or its subsidiaries or Affiliates at the date of this Agreement or (b) upon satisfaction of the following conditions: (i) the Servicer shall have proposed a successor Servicer to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee in writing and such proposed successor Servicer is reasonably acceptable to the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Enhancer; (ii) each Rating Agency shall have delivered a letter to the Issuer, the Enhancer and the Indenture Trustee prior to the appointment of the successor Servicer stating that the proposed appointment of such successor Servicer as Servicer hereunder will not cause a Rating Event, if determined without regard to the Policy; and (iii) such proposed successor Servicer is reasonably acceptable to the Enhancer, as evidenced by a letter to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee; provided, however, that no such resignation by the Servicer shall become effective until such successor Servicer or, in the case of (a) above, the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans, shall have assumed the Servicer's responsibilities and obligations hereunder or the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans, shall have designated a successor Servicer in accordance with Section 7.02. Any such resignation shall not relieve the Servicer of responsibility for any of the obligations specified in Sections 7.01 and 7.02 as obligations that survive the resignation or termination of the Servicer. Any such determination permitting the resignation of the Servicer shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect delivered to the Indenture Trustee and the Enhancer. Section 6.05 Delegation of Duties. In the ordinary course of business, the Servicer at any time may delegate any of its duties hereunder to any Person, including any of its Affiliates, that agrees to conduct such duties in accordance with standards comparable to those with which the Servicer complies pursuant to Section 3.01. Such delegation shall not relieve the Servicer of its obligations, liabilities and responsibilities with respect to such duties and shall not constitute a resignation within the meaning of Section 6.04. Section 6.06 Payment of Indenture Trustee's and Owner Trustee's Fees and Expenses; Indemnification. (a) After the Closing Date, the Servicer covenants and agrees to pay to the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and any co-trustee of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee from time to time, and the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and any such co-trustee shall be entitled to, reasonable compensation (which shall not be limited by any provision of law in regard to the compensation of a trustee of an express trust and, in the case of the Indenture Trustee, for so long as GMAC Mortgage Corporation is the Servicer shall be as set forth in the letter agreement between the Indenture Trustee and the Servicer dated as of June 22, 2006) for all services rendered by each of them in the execution of the trusts created under the Trust Agreement and the Indenture and in the exercise and performance of any of the powers and duties under the Trust Agreement or the Indenture, as the case may be, of the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and any co-trustee, and the Servicer will pay or reimburse the Indenture Trustee and any co-trustee upon request for all reasonable expenses, disbursements and advances incurred or made by the Indenture Trustee or any co-trustee in accordance with any of the provisions of this Agreement, the Indenture or the Trust Agreement except any such expense, disbursement or advance as may arise from its negligence, willful misfeasance or bad faith. In addition, the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to be reimbursed from the Servicer for all reasonable costs associated with the transfer of servicing from the predecessor servicer pursuant to Section 7.02 hereunder, including, without limitation, any reasonable costs or expenses associated with the complete transfer of all servicing data and the completion, correction or manipulation of such servicing data as may be required by the Indenture Trustee to correct any errors or insufficiencies in the servicing data or otherwise to enable the Indenture Trustee to service the Mortgage Loans properly and effectively. (b) The Servicer agrees to indemnify the Indenture Trustee and the Owner Trustee for, and to hold the Indenture Trustee and the Owner Trustee, as the case may be, harmless against, any loss, liability or expense incurred without negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct on the part of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, as the case may be, arising out of, or in connection with, the acceptance and administration of the Issuer and the assets thereof, including the costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) of defending the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, as the case may be, against any claim in connection with the exercise or performance of any of its powers or duties under any Basic Document; provided that: (i) with respect to any such claim, the Indenture Trustee or Owner Trustee, as the case may be, shall have given the Servicer written notice thereof promptly after the Indenture Trustee or Owner Trustee, as the case may be, shall have actual knowledge thereof; (ii) while maintaining control over its own defense, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or Owner Trustee, as the case may be, shall cooperate and consult fully with the Servicer in preparing such defense; and (iii) notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Servicer shall not be liable for settlement of any claim by the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, as the case may be, entered into without the prior consent of the Servicer. No termination of this Agreement or resignation or removal of the Indenture Trustee shall affect the obligations created by this Section 6.06 of the Servicer to indemnify the Indenture Trustee and the Owner Trustee under the conditions and to the extent set forth herein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the indemnification provided by the Servicer in this Section 6.06(b) shall not pertain to any loss, liability or expense of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, including the costs and expenses of defending itself against any claim, incurred in connection with any actions taken by the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee at the direction of the Noteholders or Certificateholders, as the case may be, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.
ARTICLE VII Default Section 7.01 Servicing Default. (a) If a Servicing Default shall occur and be continuing, then, and in every such case, so long as a Servicing Default shall not have been remedied by the Servicer, either the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee, upon actual knowledge of the occurrence of a Servicing Default (in each case with the consent of the Enhancer so long as no Enhancer Default exists), or the Enhancer, by notice then given in writing to the Servicer, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, may terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer as servicer under this Agreement other than its right to receive servicing compensation and expenses for servicing the Mortgage Loans hereunder during any period prior to the date of such termination, and the Enhancer or the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee (in each case with the consent of the Enhancer so long as no Enhancer Default exists), may exercise any and all other remedies available at law or equity. Any such notice to the Servicer shall also be given to each Rating Agency, the Enhancer and the Issuer. 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 Securities or the Mortgage Loans or otherwise, shall pass to and be vested in the Indenture Trustee, subject to Section 7.02 hereof, as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans, pursuant to and under this Section 7.01; and, without limitation, the Indenture 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 of each Mortgage Loan and related documents, or otherwise. The Servicer agrees to cooperate with the Issuer, the Enhancer and Indenture Trustee, as the case may be, in effecting the termination of the responsibilities and rights of the Servicer hereunder, including, without limitation, the transfer to the Indenture Trustee for the administration by it of all cash amounts relating to the Mortgage Loans that shall at the time be held by the Servicer and to be deposited by it in the Custodial Account, or that have been deposited by the Servicer in the Custodial Account or thereafter received by the Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loans, the recordation of Assignments of Mortgages to the Indenture Trustee if MERS is not the mortgagee of a Mortgage Loan, and the delivery of the Mortgage Files in its possession to the Indenture Trustee. All reasonable costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with amending this Agreement to reflect such succession as Servicer pursuant to this Section 7.01 shall be paid by the predecessor Servicer (or if the predecessor Servicer is the Indenture Trustee, the initial Servicer) upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs and expenses. (b) Notwithstanding any termination of the activities of the Servicer hereunder, the Servicer shall be entitled to receive, out of any late collection of a payment on a Mortgage Loan which was due prior to the notice terminating the Servicer's rights and obligations hereunder and received after such notice, that portion to which the Servicer would have been entitled pursuant to Sections 3.03 and 3.09 as well as its Servicing Fee in respect thereof, and any other amounts payable to the Servicer hereunder the entitlement to which arose prior to the termination of its activities hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a delay in or failure of performance under clause (i) or (ii) of the definition of Servicing Default, after the applicable grace periods specified therein, shall not constitute a Servicing Default if such delay or failure could not be prevented by the exercise of reasonable diligence by the Servicer and such delay or failure was caused by an act of God or the public enemy, acts of declared or undeclared war, public disorder, rebellion or sabotage, epidemics, landslides, lightning, fire, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods or similar causes. The preceding sentence shall not relieve the Servicer from using reasonable efforts to perform its respective obligations in a timely manner in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. The Servicer shall provide the Indenture Trustee, the Enhancer and the Securityholders with notice of any such failure or delay by it, together with a description of its efforts to so perform its obligations. The Servicer shall immediately notify the Indenture Trustee, the Enhancer and the Issuer in writing of any Servicing Default. Section 7.02 Indenture Trustee to Act; Appointment of Successor. (a) (a) On and after the time the Servicer receives a notice of termination pursuant to Section 7.01 or sends a notice pursuant to Section 6.04, the Indenture Trustee as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans shall itself become, or shall with the consent of the Enhancer appoint an affiliate of the Indenture Trustee to become the successor in all respects to the Servicer in its capacity as servicer under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for herein and shall immediately assume all of the obligations of the Servicer to make advances on Mortgage Loans under Section 3.02(b) and will be subject to all other responsibilities, duties and liabilities relating thereto placed on the Servicer by the terms and provisions hereof as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 90 days after the Indenture Trustee becomes successor servicer. During such 90 day period, the Indenture Trustee, with the consent of the Enhancer, may require the Servicer being terminated to continue to perform such servicing responsibilities (other than making advances on the Mortgage Loans under Section 3.02(b)) as the Indenture Trustee deems appropriate. In such event, the Servicer being terminated shall provide such services as directed by the Indenture Trustee until the earliest of the date the Indenture Trustee notifies such Servicer to discontinue providing such services, the date on which a successor servicer or the Indenture Trustee has assumed all responsibilities, duties and liabilities of the Servicer hereunder or the expiration of the 90 day period. The Servicer shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee hereunder for any period during which the Servicer is obligated to provide such services as if no termination of the Servicer had occurred. Nothing in this Agreement or in the Trust Agreement shall be construed to permit or require the Indenture Trustee to (i) succeed to the responsibilities, duties and liabilities of the initial Servicer in its capacity as Seller under the Purchase Agreement, (ii) be responsible or accountable for any act or omission of the Servicer prior to the issuance of a notice of termination hereunder, (iii) require or obligate the Indenture Trustee, in its capacity as successor Servicer, to purchase, repurchase or substitute any Mortgage Loan, (iv) fund any losses on any Permitted Investment directed by any other Servicer, or (v) be responsible for the representations and warranties of the Servicer. As compensation therefor, the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to such compensation as the Servicer would have been entitled to hereunder if no such notice of termination had been given. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Indenture Trustee is (x) unwilling to act as successor Servicer itself or to appoint an affiliate to become successor Servicer, or (y) legally unable so to act, the Indenture Trustee as pledgee of the Mortgage Loans may (in the situation described in clause (x)) or shall (in the situation described in clause (y)) appoint at the direction of the Enhancer or, if the Enhancer fails to make such direction, petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint any established housing and home finance institution, bank or other mortgage loan servicer 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; provided, that any such successor Servicer shall be acceptable to the Enhancer, as evidenced by the Enhancer's prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld; and provided further, that the appointment of any such successor Servicer will not result in a Rating Event, if determined without regard to the Policy. Pending appointment of a successor to the Servicer hereunder, unless the Indenture Trustee is prohibited by law from so acting, the Indenture Trustee itself shall act or appoint an affiliate to act in such capacity as provided above. In connection with such appointment and assumption, the successor shall be entitled to receive compensation out of payments on Mortgage Loans in an amount equal to the compensation that the Servicer would otherwise have received pursuant to Section 3.09 (or such other compensation as the Indenture Trustee and such successor shall agree). The appointment of a successor Servicer shall not affect any liability of the predecessor Servicer that may have arisen under this Agreement prior to its termination as Servicer (including the obligation to purchase Mortgage Loans pursuant to Section 3.01, to pay any deductible under an insurance policy pursuant to Section 3.04 or to indemnify the Indenture Trustee pursuant to Section 6.06), nor shall any successor Servicer be liable for any acts or omissions of the predecessor Servicer or for any breach by such Servicer of any of its representations or warranties contained herein or in any related document or agreement. The Indenture Trustee and such successor shall take such action, consistent with this Agreement and the requirements (including any notice requirements) of applicable law, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indenture Trustee, in its capacity as successor Servicer, shall not be responsible for the lack of information and/or documents that it cannot obtain through reasonable efforts or for failing to take any action that the Indenture Trustee is legally prohibited from taking by applicable law. (b) Any successor, including the Indenture Trustee, to the Servicer as servicer shall during its term as Servicer (i) continue to service and administer the Mortgage Loans for the benefit of the Securityholders, (ii) maintain in force a policy or policies of insurance covering errors and omissions in the performance of its obligations as Servicer hereunder and a fidelity bond in respect of its officers, employees and agents to the same extent as the Servicer is so required pursuant to Section 3.13 and (iii) be bound by the terms of the Insurance Agreement. (c) Any successor Servicer, including the Indenture Trustee, shall not be deemed in default or to have breached its duties hereunder if the predecessor Servicer shall fail to deliver any required deposit to the Custodial Account or otherwise cooperate with any required servicing transfer or succession hereunder. (d) In connection with the termination or resignation of the Servicer hereunder, either (i) the successor Servicer, including the Indenture Trustee if the Indenture 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 Mortgage Loans that are registered with MERS, in which case the predecessor Servicer shall cooperate with the successor Servicer in causing MERS to revise its records to reflect the transfer of servicing to the successor Servicer as necessary under MERS' rules and regulations, or (ii) the predecessor Servicer shall cooperate with the successor Servicer in causing MERS to execute and deliver an assignment of Mortgage in recordable form to transfer the Mortgage from MERS to the Indenture Trustee and to execute and deliver such other notices, documents and other instruments as may be necessary or desirable to effect a transfer of such Mortgage Loan or servicing of such Mortgage Loan on the MERS(R)System to the successor Servicer. The predecessor Servicer shall file or cause to be filed any such assignment in the appropriate recording office. The predecessor Servicer shall bear any and all fees of MERS, costs of preparing any assignments of Mortgage, and fees and costs of filing any assignments of Mortgage that may be required under this subsection (d). The successor Servicer shall cause such assignment to be delivered to the Indenture Trustee or the Custodian promptly upon receipt of the original with evidence of recording thereon or a copy certified by the public recording office in which such assignment was recorded. Section 7.03 Notification to Securityholders. Upon any termination of or appointment of a successor to the Servicer pursuant to this Article VII or Section 6.04, the Indenture Trustee shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Securityholders, the Enhancer, the Issuer and each Rating Agency. Section 7.04 Servicing Termination Event; Removal of Servicer . (a) Upon determination by the Credit Enhancer that a Servicing Termination Event has occurred, the Credit Enhancer shall give written notice of such Servicing Termination Event to the Servicer, the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee and to each Rating Agency. (b) At any time after such determination and while a Servicing Termination Event is continuing, the Credit Enhancer may direct the Indenture Trustee in writing to remove the Servicer if the Credit Enhancer makes a determination that the manner of servicing was a factor contributing to the size of the delinquencies or losses incurred in the Trust Estate. (c) Upon receipt of directions to remove the Servicer pursuant to the preceding clause (b), the Indenture Trustee shall notify the Servicer that it has been terminated and the Servicer shall be terminated in the same manner as specified in Sections 7.01 and 7.02. (d) After notice of occurrence of a Servicing Termination Event has been given and while a Servicing Termination Event is continuing, until and unless the Servicer has been removed as provided in clause (b), the Servicer covenants and agrees to act as the Servicer for a term from the occurrence of the Servicing Termination Event to the end of the calendar quarter in which such Servicing Termination Event occurs, which term may at the Credit Enhancer's discretion be extended by written notice to the Indenture Trustee and the Servicer for successive terms of three (3) calendar months each, until the termination of the Trust Estate. The Servicer will, upon the receipt of each such notice of extension (a "Servicer Extension Notice") become bound for the duration of the term covered by such Servicer Extension Notice to continue as Servicer subject to and in accordance with this Servicing Agreement. If, as of the fifteenth (15th) day prior to the last day of any term as the Servicer, the Indenture Trustee shall not have received any Servicer Extension Notice from the Credit Enhancer, the Indenture Trustee shall, within five (5) days thereafter, give written notice of such nonreceipt to the Credit Enhancer and the Servicer. If any such term expires without a Servicer Extension Notice then a successor Servicer shall be appointed as provided in Section 7.02. (e) No provision of this Section 7.04 shall have the effect of limiting the rights of the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee, the Noteholders or the Credit Enhancer under Section 7.01.
ARTICLE VIII Miscellaneous Provisions Section 8.01 Amendment. This Agreement may be amended from time to time by the parties hereto; provided, that any such amendment shall be accompanied by a letter from each Rating Agency to the effect that such amendment will not result in a Rating Event, if determined without regard to the Policy; and provided further, that the Enhancer and the Indenture Trustee shall consent thereto.

Section 8.08 Termination Upon Purchase by the Servicer or Liquidation of All Mortgage Loans; Partial Redemption. (a) The respective obligations and responsibilities of the Servicer, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee created hereby shall terminate upon the last action required to be taken by the Issuer pursuant to the Trust Agreement and by the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture following the earlier of: (i) the date on or before which the Indenture or the Trust Agreement is terminated, or (ii) the purchase by the Servicer from the Issuer of all Mortgage Loans and REO Property in accordance with Section 8.08(b). (b) The Servicer shall have the right to purchase from the Issuer all of the Mortgage Loans and related REO Property if the aggregate Note Balance of the Notes as of any Payment Date, prior to giving effect to any payments on such Payment Date, is less than 10% of the aggregate Note Balance of the Notes as of the Closing Date (provided that a draw on the Policy would not occur as a result of such purchase and provided further that the purchase price will provide sufficient funds to pay the outstanding Note Balance and accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes to the Payment Date on which such amounts are to be distributed to the Securityholders), at a price equal to 100% of the aggregate unpaid Principal Balance of all such remaining Mortgage Loans, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon at the weighted average of the Loan Rates thereon up to the date preceding the Payment Date on which such amounts are to be distributed to the Securityholders (and in the case of REO Property, the fair market value of the REO Property), plus any amounts due and owing to the Enhancer under the Insurance Agreement related to the Mortgage Loans or the Notes (and any unpaid Servicing Fee relating to the Mortgage Loans shall be deemed to have been paid at such time), The Servicer shall send written notice to the Enhancer of its intent to exercise its right to purchase any of the Mortgage Loans pursuant to this Section 8.08(b). In the event that the Servicer fails to exercise its right set forth in this Section 8.08(b) on or prior to the third Payment Date that it can exercise such right and if there is an unreimbursed draw on the Policy, or the Enhancer, in its reasonable judgment factoring in among other things the Overcollateralization Amount, reasonably believes that there will be a draw on the Policy, the Enhancer may exercise such right of the Servicer upon notice to the Servicer of its intent. If such right is exercised by the Servicer or the Enhancer, as applicable, the Servicer or Enhancer, as applicable, shall deposit the amount calculated pursuant to this Section 8.08(b) with the Indenture Trustee pursuant to Section 4.10 of the Indenture and, upon the receipt of such deposit, the Indenture Trustee or Custodian shall release to the Servicer or Enhancer, as applicable, the files pertaining to the Mortgage Loans being purchased.

Section 8.09 Certain Matters Affecting the Indenture Trustee.

Section 8.10 Owner Trustee Not Liable for Related Documents. The recitals contained herein shall be taken as the statements of the Servicer, and the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee assume no responsibility for the correctness thereof.

ARTICLE IX Compliance With Regulation AB Section 9.01 Intent of the Parties; Reasonableness. The Depositor, the Indenture Trustee and the Servicer acknowledge and agree that the purpose of this Article IX is to facilitate compliance by the Depositor with the provisions of Regulation AB and related rules and regulations of the Commission. The Depositor shall not exercise its right to request delivery of information or other performance under these provisions other than in good faith, or for purposes other than compliance with the Securities Act, the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act. Each of the Servicer and the Indenture Trustee acknowledges that interpretations of the requirements of Regulation AB may change over time, whether due to interpretive guidance provided by the Commission or its staff, consensus among participants in the mortgage-backed securities markets, advice of counsel, or otherwise, and agrees to comply with reasonable requests made by the Depositor in good faith for delivery of information under these provisions on the basis of evolving interpretations of Regulation AB. Each of the Servicer and the Indenture Trustee shall cooperate reasonably with the Depositor to deliver to the Depositor (including any of its assignees or designees), any and all disclosure, statements, reports, certifications, records and any other information necessary in the reasonable, good faith determination of the Depositor to permit the Depositor to comply with the provisions of Regulation AB. Section 9.02 Additional Representations and Warranties of the Indenture Trustee. (a) The Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to represent and warrant to the Depositor as of the date hereof and on each date on which information is provided to the Depositor under Sections 9.01, 9.02(b) or 9.03 that, except as disclosed in writing to the Depositor prior to such date: (i) there are no material legal or governmental proceedings pending (or known to be contemplated) against it that would be material to Noteholders; (ii) there are no relationships or transactions (as described in Item 1119(b) of Regulation AB) relating to the Indenture Trustee with respect to the Depositor or any sponsor, issuing entity, servicer, trustee, originator, significant obligor, enhancement or support provider or other material transaction party (as each of such terms are used in Regulation AB) relating to the Securitization Transaction contemplated by the Servicing Agreement, as identified by the Depositor to the Indenture Trustee in writing as of the Closing Date (each, a "Transaction Party") that are outside the ordinary course of business or on terms other than would be obtained in an arm's length transaction with an unrelated third party, apart from the Securitization Transaction, and that are material to the investors' understanding of the Notes; and (iii) the Indenture Trustee is not an affiliate (as contemplated by Item 1119(a) of Regulation AB) of any Transaction Party. The Depositor shall notify the Indenture Trustee of any change in the identity of a Transaction Party after the Closing Date. (b) If so requested by the Depositor on any date following the Closing Date, the Indenture Trustee shall, within five Business Days following such request, confirm in writing the accuracy of the representations and warranties set forth in paragraph (a) of this Section or, if any such representation and warranty is not accurate as of the date of such confirmation, provide the pertinent facts, in writing, to the Depositor. Any such request from the Depositor shall not be given more than once each calendar quarter, unless the Depositor shall have a reasonable basis for questioning the accuracy of any of the representations and warranties. Section 9.03 Information to Be Provided by the Indenture Trustee. For so long as the Company is subject to Exchange Act reporting requirements with respect to the Trust Fund, for the purpose of satisfying the Depositor's reporting obligation under the Exchange Act with respect to any class of Notes, the Indenture Trustee shall provide to the Depositor a written description of (a) any litigation or governmental proceedings pending against the Indenture Trustee as of the last day of each calendar month that would be material to Noteholders, and (b) any affiliations or relationships (as described in Item 1119 of Regulation AB) that develop following the Closing Date between the Indenture Trustee and any Transaction Party of the type described in Section 9.02(a)(ii) or 9.02(a)(iii) as of the last day of each calendar year. Any descriptions required with respect to legal proceedings, as well as updates to previously provided descriptions, under this Section 9.03 shall be given no later than five Business Days prior to the Determination Date following the month in which the relevant event occurs, and any notices and descriptions required with respect to affiliations, as well as updates to previously provided descriptions, under this Section 9.03 shall be given no later than January 31 of the calendar year following the year in which the relevant event occurs. As of the related Payment Date with respect to each Report on Form 10-D with respect to the Notes filed by or on behalf of the Depositor, and as of March 15 preceding the date each Report on Form 10-K with respect to the Notes is filed, the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to represent and warrant that any information previously provided by the Indenture Trustee under this Article IX is materially correct and does not have any material omissions unless the Indenture Trustee has provided an update to such information. The Depositor will allow the Indenture Trustee to review any disclosure relating to material litigation against the Indenture Trustee prior to filing such disclosure with the Commission to the extent the Depositor changes the information provided by the Indenture Trustee. Section 9.04 Report on Assessment of Compliance and Attestation. On or before March 15 of each calendar year, the Indenture Trustee shall: (a) deliver to the Depositor a report (in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Depositor) regarding the Indenture Trustee's assessment of compliance with the applicable Servicing Criteria during the immediately preceding calendar year, as required under Rules 13a-18 and 15d-18 of the Exchange Act and Item 1122 of Regulation AB. Such report shall be signed by an authorized officer of the Indenture Trustee, and shall address each of the Servicing Criteria specified on Exhibit G hereto; and (b) deliver to the Depositor a report of a registered public accounting firm satisfying the requirements of Rule 2-01 of Regulation S-X under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act that attests to, and reports on, the assessment of compliance made by the Indenture Trustee and delivered pursuant to the preceding paragraph. Such attestation shall be in accordance with Rules 1-02(a)(3) and 2-02(g) of Regulation S-X under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act. Section 9.05 Indemnification; Remedies. (a) The Indenture Trustee shall indemnify the Depositor, each affiliate of the Depositor, the Servicer and each affiliate of the Servicer, and the respective present and former directors, officers, employees and agents of each of the foregoing, and shall hold each of them harmless from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, legal fees and expenses and related costs, judgments, and any other costs, fees and expenses that any of them may sustain arising out of or based upon: (i) (A) any untrue statement of a material fact contained or alleged to be contained in any information, report, certification, accountants' attestation or other material provided under this Article IX by or on behalf of the Indenture Trustee (collectively, the "Indenture Trustee Information"), or (B) the omission or alleged omission to state in the Indenture Trustee Information a material fact required to be stated in the Indenture Trustee Information or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; or (ii) any failure by the Indenture Trustee to deliver any information, report, certification, or other material when and as required under this Article IX, other than a failure by the Indenture Trustee to deliver an accountants' attestation. (b) In the case of any failure of performance described in clause (ii) of Section 9.05(a), as well as a failure to deliver an accountants' attestation, the Indenture Trustee shall (i) promptly reimburse the Depositor for all costs reasonably incurred by the Depositor in order to obtain the information, report, certification, accountants' attestation or other material not delivered by the Indenture Trustee as required and (ii) cooperate with the Depositor to mitigate any damages that may result from such failure.
