22

 

 

due, payable or reimbursable to any Servicer, Certificate Administrator or Trustee with respect to the Mortgage Loan pursuant to the Servicing Agreement, shall be applied by the Note A Holder (or its designee) and distributed by the Servicer for payment in the following order of priority without duplication (and payments shall be made at such times as are set forth in the Servicing Agreement):

 

(a)           first, on a Pro Rata and Pari Passu Basis, to each Note A Holder in an amount equal to the accrued and unpaid interest on the Note Principal Balance for each A Note at the Net Note A Rate;

 

(b)           second, on a Pro Rata and Pari Passu Basis based on the outstanding principal balances of each Note A, to each Note A Holder in an amount equal to the principal payments received, if any, with respect to such Monthly Payment Date with respect to the Mortgage Loan, until such Note Principal Balance for each A Note has been reduced to zero;

 

(c)           third, on a Pro Rata and Pari Passu Basis, to each Note A Holder up to the amount of any unreimbursed costs and expenses paid by such Note A Holder including any Recovered Costs not previously reimbursed to such Note A Holder (or paid or advanced by any Servicer on its behalf and not previously paid or reimbursed) with respect to the Mortgage Loan pursuant to this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement;

 

(d)           fourth, on a Pro Rata and Pari Passu Basis, any Prepayment Premium, to the extent paid by the Mortgage Loan Borrower, shall be paid to each Note A Holder in an amount up to its pro rata interest therein, based on the product of the Note A Percentage Interests multiplied by its Relative Spread;

(h)           eighth, if the proceeds of any foreclosure sale or any liquidation of a Mortgage Loan or Mortgaged Property exceed the amounts required to be applied in accordance with the foregoing clauses (a)-(g) and, as a result of a Workout the Note Principal Balance for each Note B has been reduced, such excess amount shall be paid to the Note B Holder in an amount up to the reduction, if any, of the Note Principal Balance for each Note B as a result of such Workout, plus interest on such amount at the related Note B Rate;

 

(i)            ninth, to the extent assumption or transfer fees actually paid by the Mortgage Loan Borrower are not required to be otherwise applied under the Servicing Agreement, including, without limitation, to provide reimbursement for interest on any

 

23

 

 

Advances, to pay any Additional Servicing Expenses or to compensate a Servicer (in each case provided that such reimbursements or payments relate to the Mortgage Loan), any such assumption or transfer fees, to the extent actually paid by the Mortgage Loan Borrower, shall be paid to each Note A Holder and each Note B Holder, pro rata, based on their respective Percentage Interests; and

 

(j)            tenth, if any excess amount is available to be distributed in respect of the Mortgage Loan, and not otherwise applied in accordance with the foregoing clauses (a)-(i), any remaining amount shall be paid pro rata to each Note A Holder and each Note B Holder in accordance with their respective initial Percentage Interests.

 

All expenses and losses relating to the Mortgage Loan and the Mortgaged Property, including without limitation losses of principal and interest, Servicing Advances, advance interest, Special Servicing Fees, Liquidation Fees and Workout Fees, Appraisal Reduction Amounts and certain other trust expenses, shall be allocated in Reverse Sequential Order. Any realized losses (including reductions by a bankruptcy court) applied to reduce the principal balance of the Mortgage Loan shall be reimbursed in Sequential Order after all amounts of interest and principal have otherwise been paid in full on all the Notes.

 

Section 4.          Workout. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, but subject to the terms and conditions of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, and the obligation to act in accordance with the Servicing Standard, if the Lead Securitization Note Holder, or any Servicer, in connection with a workout or proposed workout of the Mortgage Loan, modifies the terms thereof such that (i) the principal balance of the Mortgage Loan is decreased, (ii) the Interest Rate on any Note is reduced, (iii) payments of interest or principal on any Note are waived, reduced or deferred or (iv) any other adjustment is made to any of the payment terms of the Mortgage Loan, such modification shall not alter, and any modification of the Mortgage Loan Documents shall be structured to preserve, the Sequential Order of payment of the Notes as set forth therein, and all payments to the Note A Holders pursuant to Section 3 shall be made as though such workout did not occur, with the payment terms of each A Note remaining the same as they are on the date hereof, and the full economic effect of all waivers, reductions or deferrals of amounts due on the Mortgage Loan attributable to such workout shall be borne, first, by the Note B Holders, on a Pro Rata and Pari Passu Basis, based on their respective Note Principal Balances (up to their respective Note Principal Balances, together with accrued interest thereon at the Note Rate and any other amounts due to each Note B Holder, as applicable) and then, by the Note A Holders, on a Pro Rata and Pari Passu Basis (up to their respective Note Principal Balances, together with accrued interest thereon at the Note Rate and any other amounts due to each Note A Holder, as applicable).

 

Section 5.          Administration of the Mortgage Loan.

 

(a)           Subject to this Agreement (including but not limited to Section 5(c)) and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement and subject to the rights and consent, where required, of the Controlling Note Holder Representative, the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Note Holder) shall have the sole and exclusive authority with respect to the administration of, and exercise of rights and remedies with respect to, the Mortgage Loan,

 

24

 

 

including, without limitation, the sole authority to modify or waive any of the terms of the Mortgage Loan Documents or consent to any action or failure to act by the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any other party to the Mortgage Loan Documents, call or waive any Event of Default, accelerate the Mortgage Loan or institute any foreclosure action or other remedy, and no Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder shall have any voting, consent or other rights whatsoever except as explicitly set forth herein with respect to the Lead Securitization Note Holder’s administration of, or exercise of its rights and remedies with respect to, the Mortgage Loan. Subject to this Agreement and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder agrees that it shall have no right to, and hereby presently and irrevocably assigns and conveys to the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Note Holder) the rights, if any, that such Note Holder has to, (i) call or cause the Lead Securitization Note Holder to call an Event of Default under the Mortgage Loan, or (ii) exercise any remedies with respect to the Mortgage Loan or the Mortgage Loan Borrower, including, without limitation, filing or causing the Lead Securitization Note Holder to file any bankruptcy petition against the Mortgage Loan Borrower. The Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Note Holder) shall not have any fiduciary duty to any Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder in connection with the administration of the Mortgage Loan (but the foregoing shall not relieve the Lead Securitization Note Holder from the obligation to make any disbursement of funds as set forth herein or its obligation to follow the Servicing Standard (in the case of the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer) or any liability for failure to do so).

 

Upon the Mortgage Loan becoming a Defaulted Mortgage Loan, each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder hereby acknowledges the right and obligation of the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Special Servicer acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Note Holder) to sell the Non-Lead Securitization Notes together with the Lead Securitization Note as notes evidencing one whole loan in accordance with the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. In connection with any such sale, the Special Servicer shall be required to sell each Non-Lead Securitization Note together with the Lead Securitization Note in the manner set forth in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Special Servicer acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Note Holder) shall not be permitted to sell the Mortgage Loan if it becomes a Defaulted Mortgage Loan without the written consent of each Non-Controlling Note Holder (provided that such consent is not required if the Non-Controlling Note Holder is the Mortgage Loan Borrower or an affiliate of the Mortgage Loan Borrower) unless the Special Servicer has delivered to each Non-Controlling Note Holder: (a) at least 15 Business Days’ prior written notice of any decision to attempt to sell the Mortgage Loan; (b) at least 10 days prior to the permitted sale date, a copy of each bid package (together with any material amendments to such bid packages) received by the Special Servicer in connection with any such proposed sale; (c) at least 10 days prior to the proposed sale date, a copy of the most recent appraisal for the Mortgaged Property, and any documents in the Loan File reasonably requested by such Non-Controlling Note Holder that are material to the price of the Mortgage Loan; and (d) until the sale is completed, and a reasonable period of time (but not less time than is afforded to other offerors) prior to the proposed sale date, all information and other documents being provided to other offerors and all leases or other documents that are approved by the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer in connection with the proposed sale; provided, that such Non-Controlling Note

 

25

 

 

Holder may waive any of the delivery or timing requirements set forth in this sentence. Subject to the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, each Non-Controlling Note Holder shall be permitted to bid at any sale of the Mortgage Loan, unless such Person is the Mortgage Loan Borrower or an agent or Affiliate of the Mortgage Loan Borrower.

 

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

 

The authority of the Lead Securitization Note Holder to sell the Non-Lead Securitization Notes, and the obligations of the Non-Lead Securitization Note Holders to execute and deliver instruments or deliver the Non-Lead Securitization Note upon request of the Lead Securitization Note Holder, shall terminate and cease to be of any further force or effect upon the date, if any, upon which the Lead Securitization is terminated in accordance with its terms.

 

(b)           The administration of the Mortgage Loan shall be governed by this Agreement and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. The servicing of the Mortgage Loan shall be carried out by the Master Servicer and, if the Mortgage Loan is a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan (or to the extent otherwise provided in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement), by the Special Servicer, in each case pursuant to the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in accordance with the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, the Lead Securitization Note Holder shall cause the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer to service and administer the Mortgage Loan in accordance with the Servicing Standard, taking into account the interests of each of the Note Holders as a collective whole (taking into account that Note B is junior to the A Notes). The Note Holders agree to be bound by the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. All rights and obligations of the Lead Securitization Note Holder described hereunder may be exercised by the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Certificate Administrator and/or the Trustee on behalf of the Lead Securitization Note Holder. The Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement shall not be amended in any manner that may adversely affect any Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder in its capacity as Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder without such Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder’s prior written consent. Each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder (unless it is the same Person as or an Affiliate of the Mortgage Loan Borrower) shall be a third-party beneficiary to the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement with respect to its rights as specifically provided for therein.

 

26

 

 

(c)           The Controlling Note Holder (or its Controlling Note Holder Representative) shall have, with respect to the Mortgage Loan, all of the rights and powers of the Lead Securitization Subordinate Class Representative under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, including without limitation, the right to consent and/or consult regarding Major Decisions and other servicing matters, the right to advise (1) the Special Servicer with respect to all Specially Serviced Loans and (2) the Special Servicer with respect to non-Specially Serviced Loans as to all matters for which the Master Servicer must obtain the consent or deemed consent of the Special Servicer, and the right to direct the Special Servicer to take, or to refrain from taking, such other actions with respect to the Mortgage Loan as the Lead Securitization Subordinate Class Representative may deem advisable or as to which provision is otherwise made therein, in each case subject to the terms and conditions of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement.

 

(d)           Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer acting on its behalf) shall be required (i) to provide copies of any notice, information and report that it is required to provide to the Lead Securitization Subordinate Class Representative pursuant to the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement with respect to any Major Decisions or the implementation of any recommended actions outlined in an Asset Status Report relating to the Mortgage Loan, to each Non-Controlling Note Holder or its Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative, within the same time frame it is required to provide to the Lead Securitization Subordinate Class Representative (for this purpose, without regard to whether such items are actually required to be provided to the Lead Securitization Subordinate Class Representative under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement due to the occurrence of a Control Termination Event or a Consultation Termination Event or effectively equivalent period, but subject to any limitations in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement regarding providing such information to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or those who have certain relationships with the Mortgage Loan Borrower) and (ii) to consult on a non-binding basis with each Non-Controlling Note Holder (or its Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative) and consider alternative actions recommended by such Non-Controlling Note Holder (or its Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative) with respect to any such Major Decisions or the implementation of any recommended actions outlined in an Asset Status Report relating to the Mortgage Loan; provided that that after the expiration of a period of 10 Business Days from the delivery to each Non-Controlling Note Holder (or its Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative) by the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer acting on its behalf) of written notice of a proposed action, together with copies of the notice, information and report required to be provided to the Lead Securitization Subordinate Class Representative, the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer acting on its behalf) shall no longer be obligated to consult with such Non-Controlling Note Holder (or its Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative), whether or not such Non-Controlling Note Holder (or its Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative) has responded within such ten (10) Business Day period (unless, the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer acting on its behalf) proposes a new course of action that is materially different from the action previously proposed, in which case such 10 Business Day period shall be deemed to begin anew from the date of such proposal and delivery of all information relating thereto). Notwithstanding the consultation rights of each Non-Controlling Note Holder (or its Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative) set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, the Lead Securitization Note

 

27

 

 

Holder (or Servicer or Special Servicer, acting on its behalf) may make any Major Decision or take any action set forth in the Asset Status Report before the expiration of the aforementioned 10 Business Day period if the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or Master Servicer or Special Servicer, as applicable) determines that immediate action with respect thereto is necessary to protect the interests of the Note Holders. In no event shall the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or Master Servicer or Special Servicer, acting on its behalf) be obligated at any time to follow or take any alternative actions recommended by each Non-Controlling Note Holder (or its Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative).

 

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

 

Anything herein or in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that one of the Notes is included in a REMIC and the other is not, such other Note Holder shall not be required to reimburse such Note Holder or any other Person for payment of (i) any taxes imposed on such REMIC, (ii) any costs or expenses relating to the administration of such REMIC or to any determination respecting the amount, payment or avoidance of any tax under such REMIC or (iii) any advances for any of the foregoing or any interest thereon or for deficits in other items of disbursement or income resulting from the use of funds for payment of any such taxes, costs or expenses or advances, nor shall any disbursement or payment otherwise distributable to the other Note Holders be reduced to offset or make-up any such payment or deficit.

 

Section 6.           Appointment of Controlling Note Holder Representative and Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative.

 

(a)           The Controlling Note Holder shall have the right at any time to appoint a representative in connection with the exercise of its rights and obligations with respect to the Mortgage Loan (the “Controlling Note Holder Representative”). The Controlling Note Holder shall have the right in its sole discretion at any time and from time to time to remove and

 

28

 

 

replace the Controlling Note Holder Representative in accordance with the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. When exercising its various rights under Section 5 and elsewhere in this Agreement, the Controlling Note Holder may, at its option, in each case, act through the Controlling Note Holder Representative. The Controlling Note Holder Representative may be any Person (other than the Mortgage Loan Borrower, its principal or any Affiliate of the Mortgage Loan Borrower), including, without limitation, the Controlling Note Holder, any officer or employee of the Controlling Note Holder, any affiliate of the Controlling Note Holder or any other unrelated third party. No such Controlling Note Holder Representative shall owe any fiduciary duty or other duty to any other Person (other than the Controlling Note Holder). All actions that are permitted to be taken by the Controlling Note Holder under this Agreement may be taken by the Controlling Note Holder Representative acting on behalf of the Controlling Note Holder. No Servicer, Trustee or Certificate Administrator acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Note Holder shall be required to recognize any Person as a Controlling Note Holder Representative until the Controlling Note Holder has notified each Servicer, Trustee and Certificate Administrator of such appointment and, if the Controlling Note Holder Representative is not the same Person as the Controlling Note Holder, the Controlling Note Holder Representative provides each Servicer, Trustee and Certificate Administrator with written confirmation of its acceptance of such appointment, an address and facsimile number for the delivery of notices and other correspondence and a list of officers or employees of such Person with whom the parties to this Agreement may deal (including their names, titles, work addresses and facsimile numbers). The Controlling Note Holder shall promptly deliver such information to each Servicer, Trustee and Certificate Administrator. So long as no Consultation Termination Event (including any such deemed event) is in effect pursuant to the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, the Controlling Note Holder Representative shall be the Lead Securitization Subordinate Class Representative.

 

(b)           Neither the Controlling Note Holder Representative nor the Controlling Note Holder will have any liability to the other Note Holders or any other Person for any action taken, or for refraining from the taking of any action or the giving of any consent or the failure to give any consent pursuant to this Agreement or the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, or errors in judgment, absent any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of its willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence. The Note Holders agree that the Controlling Note Holder Representative and the Controlling Note Holder (whether acting in place of the Controlling Note Holder Representative when no Controlling Note Holder Representative shall have been appointed hereunder or otherwise exercising any right, power or privilege granted to the Controlling Note Holder hereunder) may take or refrain from taking actions, or give or refrain from giving consents, that favor the interests of one Note Holder over the other Note Holder, and that the Controlling Note Holder Representative may have special relationships and interests that conflict with the interests of a Note Holder and, absent willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence on the part of the Controlling Note Holder Representative or the Controlling Note Holder, as the case may be, agree to take no action against the Controlling Note Holder Representative, the Controlling Note Holder or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, principals or agents as a result of such special relationships or interests, and that neither the Controlling Note Holder Representative nor the Controlling Note Holder will be deemed to have been negligent, or to have acted in bad faith or engaged in willful misfeasance or to have disregarded any exercise of its rights by reason of its having acted or refrained from

 

29

 

 

acting, or having given any consent or having failed to give any consent, solely in the interests of any Note Holder.

 

(c)           Each Non-Controlling Note Holder shall have the right at any time to appoint a representative in connection with the exercise of its rights and obligations with respect to the Mortgage Loan (each, a “Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative”). All of the provisions relating to Controlling Note Holder and the Controlling Note Holder Representative set forth in Section 6(a) (except those contained in the last sentence thereof) and Section 6(b) shall apply to each Non-Controlling Note Holder and its Non-Controlling Note Holder Representative mutatis mutandis.

 

Section 7.          Appointment of Special Servicer. Subject to the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, the Controlling Note Holder (or its Controlling Note Holder Representative) shall have the right at any time and from time to time, with or without cause, to replace the Special Servicer then acting with respect to the Mortgage Loan and appoint a replacement Special Servicer in lieu thereof. Any designation by the Controlling Note Holder (or its Controlling Note Holder Representative) of a Person to serve as Special Servicer shall be made by delivering to the other Note Holder, the Master Servicer, the then existing Special Servicer and other parties to the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement a written notice stating such designation and satisfying the other conditions to such replacement as set forth in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. The Controlling Note Holder and the Non-Controlling Note Holder acknowledge and agree that any successor special servicer appointed to replace the Special Servicer shall meet the Required Special Servicer Rating for each Rating Agency (or, with respect to any such Rating Agency, a Rating Agency Confirmation is obtained or deemed obtained pursuant to the terms of the related Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement or Non-Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, as applicable). The Controlling Note Holder shall be solely responsible for any expenses incurred in connection with any such replacement without cause. The Controlling Note Holder shall notify the other parties hereto of its termination of the then currently serving Special Servicer and its appointment of a replacement Special Servicer in accordance with this Section 7. If the Controlling Note Holder has not appointed a Special Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loan as of the consummation of the securitization under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, then the initial Special Servicer designated in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement shall serve as the initial Special Servicer but this shall not limit the right of the Controlling Note Holder (or its Controlling Note Holder Representative) to designate a replacement Special Servicer for the Mortgage Loan as aforesaid. If a Servicer Termination Event on the part of the Special Servicer has occurred that affects any Non-Controlling Note Holder, such Non-Controlling Note Holder shall have the right to direct the Trustee (or at any time that the Mortgage Loan is no longer included in a Securitization Trust, the Controlling Note Holder) to terminate the Special Servicer under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement solely with respect to the Mortgage Loan pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. The Controlling Note Holder and each Non-Controlling Note Holder acknowledge and agree that any successor special servicer appointed to replace the Special Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loan that was terminated for cause at a Non-Controlling Note Holder’s direction cannot at any time be the person (or an Affiliate thereof) that was so terminated without the prior written consent of such Non-Controlling Note Holder. In connection with such termination and appointment, the related Non-Controlling Note Holder shall be solely responsible for reimbursing the Trustee’s or the

 

30

 

 

Controlling Note Holder’s, as applicable, costs and expenses, if not paid within a reasonable time by the terminated special servicer and, in the case of the Trustee, that would otherwise be reimbursed to the Trustee from amounts on deposit in the Collection Account

 

Section 8.          Payment Procedure.

 

(a)           The Lead Securitization Note Holder, in accordance with the priorities set forth in Section 3 and subject to the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, will deposit or cause to be deposited all payments allocable to the Notes to the Collection Account pursuant to and in accordance with the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. The Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Master Servicer acting on its behalf) shall (i) deposit such amounts to the applicable account within two (2) Business Days after receipt of properly identified funds by the Lead Securitization Note Holder (or the Master Servicer acting on its behalf) from or on behalf of the Mortgage Loan Borrower and (ii) remit from the applicable account (A) prior to the Securitization Date, within two Business Days of receipt of properly identified funds (unless otherwise specified pursuant to an interim servicing agreement) and (B) on or after the Securitization Date, (A) with respect to the Lead Securitization Notes, the remittance date under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement for the Lead Securitization Notes and (B) with respect to each Non-Lead Securitization Note, (x) prior to the Non-Lead Securitization, the remittance date under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement for the Lead Securitization Notes and (y) on or after the Non-Lead Securitization, the earlier of the remittance date under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement and the business day immediately succeeding the “determination date” set forth in the related Non-Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement for such Non-Lead Securitization Notes as long as such determination date is no earlier than the 6th day of the calendar month, all payments received and allocable pursuant to this Agreement and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement with respect to the Non-Lead Securitization Notes (net of amounts payable or reimbursable from such account) by wire transfer to accounts maintained by the applicable Note Holder.

 

(b)           If the Lead Securitization Note Holder determines, or a court of competent jurisdiction orders, at any time that any amount received or collected in respect of any Note must, pursuant to any insolvency, bankruptcy, fraudulent conveyance, preference or similar law, be returned to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or paid to the Lead Securitization Note Holder, a Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder or any Servicer or paid to any other Person, then, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, a Lead Securitization Note Holder shall not be required to distribute any portion thereof to the Non-Lead Securitization Note Holders and each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder will promptly on demand by the Lead Securitization Note Holder repay to the Lead Securitization Note Holder any portion thereof that the Lead Securitization Note Holder shall have theretofore distributed to such Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder, together with interest thereon at such rate, if any, as the Lead Securitization Note Holder shall have been required to pay to any Mortgage Loan Borrower, Master Servicer, Special Servicer or such other Person with respect thereto.

 

(c)           If, for any reason, the Lead Securitization Note Holder makes any payment to a Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder before the Lead Securitization Note Holder has received the corresponding payment (it being understood that the Lead Securitization Note Holder is under no obligation to do so), and the Lead Securitization Note Holder does not

 

31

 

 

receive the corresponding payment within five (5) Business Days of its payment to the related Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder, the related Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder shall, at the Lead Securitization Note Holder’s request, promptly return that payment to the Lead Securitization Note Holder.

 

(d)           Each Note Holder agrees that if at any time it shall receive from any sources whatsoever any payment on account of the Mortgage Loan in excess of its distributable share thereof, it shall promptly remit such excess to the applicable Note Holder, subject to this Agreement and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. The Lead Securitization Note Holder shall have the right to offset any amounts due hereunder from a Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder with respect to the Mortgage Loan against any future payments due to such Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder under the Mortgage Loan. Such Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder’s obligations under this Section 8 constitute absolute, unconditional and continuing obligations.

 

Section 9.          Limitation on Liability of the Note Holders. Subject to the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement governing limitation on the liabilities of the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Trustee, the Certificate Administrator and the Operating Advisor each Note Holder shall have no liability to any other Note Holder with respect to its Note except with respect to losses actually suffered due to the negligence, willful misconduct or breach of this Agreement on the part of such Note Holder.

 

The Note Holders acknowledge that, subject to the obligation of the Lead Securitization Note Holder (including any Servicer and the Trustee) to comply with, and except as otherwise required by, the Servicing Standard, the Lead Securitization Note Holder (including any Servicer and the Trustee) may exercise, or omit to exercise, any rights that the Lead Securitization Note Holder may have under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement in a manner that may be adverse to the interests of any Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder and that the Lead Securitization Note Holder (including any Servicer and the Trustee) shall have no liability whatsoever to any Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder in connection with the Lead Securitization Note Holder’s exercise of rights or any omission by the Lead Securitization Note Holder to exercise such rights other than as described above; provided, however, that the Servicer must act in accordance with the Servicing Standard.

 

Section 10.        Bankruptcy. Subject to Section 5(c), each Note Holder hereby covenants and agrees that only the Lead Securitization Note Holder has the right to institute, file, commence, acquiesce, petition under Bankruptcy Code Section 303 or otherwise or join any Person in any such petition or otherwise invoke or cause any other Person to invoke an Insolvency Proceeding with respect to or against the Mortgage Loan Borrower or seek to appoint a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, custodian, sequestrator or other similar official with respect to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or all or any part of its property or assets or ordering the winding-up or liquidation of the affairs of the Mortgage Loan Borrower. Each Note Holder further agrees that only the Lead Securitization Note Holder, and not the Non-Lead Securitization Note Holders, can make any election, give any consent, commence any action or file any motion, claim, obligation, notice or application or take any other action in any case by or against the Mortgage Loan Borrower under the Bankruptcy Code or in any other Insolvency Proceeding. The Note Holders hereby appoint the Lead Securitization Note Holder as their

agent, and grant to the Lead Securitization Note Holder an irrevocable power of attorney coupled with an interest, and their proxy, for the purpose of exercising any and all rights and taking any and all actions available to the Non-Lead Securitization Note Holders in connection with any case by or against the Mortgage Loan Borrower under the Bankruptcy Code or in any other Insolvency Proceeding, including, without limitation, the right to file and/or prosecute any claim, vote to accept or reject a plan, to make any election under Section 1111(b) of the Bankruptcy Code with respect to the Mortgage Loan, and to file a motion to modify, lift or terminate the automatic stay with respect to the Mortgage Loan. The Note Holders hereby agree that, upon the request of the Lead Securitization Note Holder, each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Lead Securitization Note Holder all and every such further deeds, conveyances and instruments as the Lead Securitization Note Holder may reasonably request for the better assuring and evidencing of the foregoing appointment and grant. All actions taken by the Servicer in connection with any Insolvency Proceeding are subject to and must be in accordance with the Servicing Standard.

 

Section 11.        Representations of the Note Holders. Each Note Holder represents and warrants that the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement is within its corporate powers, has been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action, and does not contravene such Note Holder’s charter or any law or contractual restriction binding upon such Note Holder, and that this Agreement is the legal, valid and binding obligation of such Note Holder enforceable against such Note Holder in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law), and except that the enforcement of rights with respect to indemnification and contribution obligations may be limited by applicable law. Each Note Holder represents and warrants that it is duly organized, validly existing, in good standing and in possession of all licenses and authorizations necessary to carry on its business. Each Note Holder represents and warrants that (a) this Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by such Note Holder, (b) to such Note Holder’s actual knowledge, all consents, approvals, authorizations, orders or filings of or with any court or governmental agency or body, if any, required for the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by such Note Holder have been obtained or made and (c) to such Note Holder’s actual knowledge, there is no pending action, suit or proceeding, arbitration or governmental investigation against such Note Holder, an adverse outcome of which would materially and adversely affect its performance under this Agreement.

 

Section 12.        No Creation of a Partnership or Exclusive Purchase Right. Nothing contained in this Agreement, and no action taken pursuant hereto shall be deemed to constitute the relationship created hereby between the Note Holders as a partnership, association, joint venture or other entity. No Note Holder shall have any obligation whatsoever to offer to any other Note Holder the opportunity to purchase a participation interest in any future loans originated by such Note Holder or its Affiliates and if any Note Holder chooses to offer to any other Note Holder the opportunity to purchase a participation interest in any future mortgage loans originated by such Note Holder or its Affiliates, such offer shall be at such purchase price and interest rate as such Note Holder chooses, in its sole and absolute discretion. No Note Holder shall have any obligation whatsoever to purchase from any other Note Holder a participation interest in any future loans originated by such Note Holder or its Affiliates.

 

33

 

 

Section 13.        Other Business Activities of the Note Holders. Each Note Holder acknowledges that the other Note Holders or their Affiliates may make loans or otherwise extend credit to, and generally engage in any kind of business with, the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Affiliate thereof, any entity that is a holder of debt secured by direct or indirect ownership interests in the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any entity that is a holder of a preferred equity interest in the Mortgage Loan Borrower (each, a “Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party”), and receive payments on such other loans or extensions of credit to Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Parties and otherwise act with respect thereto freely and without accountability in the same manner as if this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby were not in effect.

 

Section 14.        Sale of the Notes.

 

(a)           Each Note Holder agrees that it will not sell, assign, transfer, pledge, syndicate, participate, hypothecate, contribute, encumber or otherwise dispose (either (i) directly or (ii) indirectly through entering into a derivatives contract or any other similar agreement, excluding a repo financing or a Pledge in accordance with Section 14(d)) of a Note (a “Transfer”) except to a Qualified Institutional Lender. Promptly after the Transfer, the non-transferring Note Holders shall be provided with (x) a representation from a transferee or the applicable Note Holder certifying that such transferee is a Qualified Institutional Lender (except in the case of a Transfer to a Securitization (and the related pooling and servicing or similar agreement requires the parties thereto to comply with this Agreement) or in accordance with the immediately following sentence) and (y) a copy of the assignment and assumption agreement referred to in Section 15. If a Note Holder intends to Transfer its respective Note, or any portion thereof, to an entity that is not a Qualified Institutional Lender, it must first obtain the consent of each non-transferring Note Holder and, if such non-transferring Note -Holder’s Note is held in a Securitization Trust, a Rating Agency Confirmation from each Rating Agency relating to such Securitization Trust. Notwithstanding the foregoing, without the non-transferring Note Holder’s prior consent (which will not be unreasonably withheld), and, if such non-transferring Note Holder’s Note is held in a Securitization Trust, without Rating Agency Confirmation from each Rating Agency relating to such Securitization Trust, no Note Holder shall Transfer all or any portion of its Note (or a participation interest in such Note) to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or a Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party and any such Transfer shall be absolutely null and void and shall vest no rights in the purported transferee. The transferring Note Holder agrees that it will pay the expenses of the non-transferring Note Holder (including all expenses of the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer and the Trustee) and all expenses relating to the confirmation from the Rating Agencies in connection with any such Transfer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Note Holder shall have the right, without the need to obtain the consent of any other Note Holder, the Rating Agencies or any other Person, to Transfer 49% or less (in the aggregate) of its Note or any beneficial interest in its Note. None of the provisions of this Section 14(a) shall apply in the case of (1) a sale of all of the Notes in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement or (2) a transfer by the Special Servicer, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, of the Mortgage Loan or the Mortgaged Property, upon the Mortgage Loan becoming a Defaulted Loan, to a single member limited liability or limited partnership, 100% of the equity interest in which is owned directly or indirectly, through one or more single member limited liability companies or limited partnerships, by the Lead Securitization Trust.

 

34

 

 

For the purposes of this Agreement, if any Rating Agency shall, in writing, waive, decline or refuse to review or otherwise engage any request for a Rating Agency Confirmation hereunder from such Rating Agency that a proposed action will not result in a qualification, downgrade or withdrawal of its then current rating of the securities issued pursuant to the related Securitization, such waiver, declination, or refusal shall be deemed to eliminate, for such request only, the condition that such confirmation by such Rating Agency (only) be obtained for purposes of this Agreement. For purposes of clarity, any such waiver, declination or refusal to review or otherwise engage in any request for such confirmation hereunder shall not be deemed a waiver, declination or refusal to review or otherwise engage in any subsequent request for such Rating Agency Confirmation hereunder and the condition for such Rating Agency Confirmation pursuant to this Agreement for any subsequent request shall apply regardless of any previous waiver, declination or refusal to review or otherwise engage in such prior request.

 

(b)           In the case of any Transfer of a participation interest in any of the Notes, (i) the respective Note Holders’ obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Note Holders shall remain solely responsible for the performance of such obligations, and (iii) the Lead Securitization Note Holder and any Persons acting on its behalf shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Note Holder in connection with such Note Holder’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, and all amounts payable hereunder shall be determined as if such Note Holder had not sold such participation interest.

 

(c)           Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, any Note Holder may pledge (a “Pledge”) its Note to any entity (other than the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Affiliate thereof) which has extended a credit facility to such Note Holder and that is either a Qualified Institutional Lender or a financial institution whose long-term unsecured debt is rated at least “A” (or the equivalent) or better by each Rating Agency (a “Note Pledgee”), on terms and conditions set forth in this Section 14(c), it being further agreed that a financing provided by a Note Pledgee to a Note Holder or any Person which Controls such Note that is secured by its Note and is structured as a repurchase arrangement, shall qualify as a “Pledge” hereunder, provided that a Note Pledgee which is not a Qualified Institutional Lender may not take title to the pledged Note without a Rating Agency Confirmation. Upon written notice by the applicable Note Holder to any other Note Holder and any Servicer that a Pledge has been effected (including the name and address of the applicable Note Pledgee), such other Note Holder agrees to acknowledge receipt of such notice and thereafter agrees: (i) to give Note Pledgee written notice of any default by the pledging Note Holder in respect of its obligations under this Agreement of which default such Note Holder has actual knowledge; (ii) to allow such Note Pledgee a period of ten (10) days to cure a default by the pledging Note Holder in respect of its obligations to any other Note Holder hereunder, but such Note Pledgee shall not be obligated to cure any such default; (iii) that no amendment, modification, waiver or termination of this Agreement shall be effective against such Note Pledgee without the written consent of such Note Pledgee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; (iv) that such other Note Holder shall give to such Note Pledgee copies of any notice of default under this Agreement simultaneously with the giving of same to the pledging Note Holder; (v) that such other Note Holder shall deliver to Note Pledgee such estoppel certificate(s) as Note Pledgee shall reasonably request, provided that any such certificate(s) shall be in a form reasonably satisfactory to such other Note Holder; and (vi) that, upon written

 

35

 

 

notice (a “Redirection Notice”) to the other Note Holders and any Servicer by such Note Pledgee that the pledging Note Holder is in default, beyond any applicable cure periods, under the pledging Note Holder’s obligations to such Note Pledgee pursuant to the applicable credit agreement between the pledging Note Holder and such Note Pledgee (which notice need not be joined in or confirmed by the pledging Note Holder), and until such Redirection Notice is withdrawn or rescinded by such Note Pledgee, Note Pledgee shall be entitled to receive any payments that any Note Holder or Servicer would otherwise be obligated to pay to the pledging Note Holder from time to time pursuant to this Agreement or the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. Any pledging Note Holder hereby unconditionally and absolutely releases the other Note Holders and any Servicer from any liability to the pledging Note Holder on account of such other Note Holder’s or Servicer’s compliance with any Redirection Notice believed by any Servicer or such other Note Holder to have been delivered by a Note Pledgee. A Note Pledgee shall be permitted to exercise fully its rights and remedies against the pledging Note Holder to such Note Pledgee (and accept an assignment in lieu of foreclosure as to such collateral), in accordance with applicable law and this Agreement. In such event, the Note Holders and any Servicer shall recognize such Note Pledgee (and any transferee other than the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Affiliate thereof which is also a Qualified Institutional Lender at any foreclosure or similar sale held by such Note Pledgee or any transfer in lieu of foreclosure), and its successor and assigns, as the successor to the pledging Note Holder’s rights, remedies and obligations under this Agreement, and any such Note Pledgee or Qualified Institutional Lender shall assume in writing the obligations of the pledging Note Holder hereunder accruing from and after such Transfer (i.e., realization upon the collateral by such Note Pledgee) and agrees to be bound by the terms and provisions of this Agreement. The rights of a Note Pledgee under this Section 14(c) shall remain effective as to any Note Holder (and any Servicer) unless and until such Note Pledgee shall have notified any such Note Holder (and any Servicer, as applicable) in writing that its interest in the pledged Note has terminated.

 

(d)           Notwithstanding any provisions herein to the contrary, if a conduit (“Conduit”) which is not a Qualified Institutional Lender provides financing to a Note Holder then such Note Holder shall have the right to grant a security interest in its Note to such Conduit notwithstanding that such Conduit is not a Qualified Institutional Lender, if the following conditions are satisfied:

 

(i)            The loan (the “Conduit Inventory Loan”) made by the Conduit to such Note Holder to finance the acquisition and holding of its Note requires a third party (the “Conduit Credit Enhancer”) to provide credit enhancement;

 

(ii)           The Conduit Credit Enhancer is a Qualified Institutional Lender;

 

(iii)          Such Note Holder pledges its interest in its Note to the Conduit as collateral for the Conduit Inventory Loan;

 

(iv)          The Conduit Credit Enhancer and the Conduit agree that, if such Note Holder defaults under the Conduit Inventory Loan, or if the Conduit is unable to refinance its outstanding commercial paper even if there is no default by such Note Holder, the Conduit Credit Enhancer will purchase the Conduit Inventory Loan from the

 

36

 

 

Conduit, and the Conduit will assign the pledge of such Note Holder’s Note to the Conduit Credit Enhancer; and

 

(v)           Unless the Conduit is in fact then a Qualified Institutional Lender, the Conduit will not without obtaining a Rating Agency Confirmation from each Rating Agency have any greater right to acquire the interests in the Note pledged by such Note Holder, by foreclosure or otherwise, than would any other purchaser that is not a Qualified Institutional Lender at a foreclosure sale conducted by a Note Pledgee.

 

Section 15.        Registration of the Notes and Each Note Holder. The Agent shall keep or cause to be kept at the Agent Office books (the “Note Register”) for the registration and transfer of the Notes. The Agent shall serve as the initial note registrar and the Agent hereby accepts such appointment. The names and addresses of the holders of the Notes and the names and addresses of any transferee of any Note of which the Agent has received notice, in the form of a copy of the assignment and assumption agreement referred to in this Section 15, shall be registered in the Note Register. The Person in whose name a Note Holder is so registered shall be deemed and treated as the sole owner and holder thereof for all purposes of this Agreement. Upon request of a Note Holder (including the Servicer or Special Servicer on the Lead Securitization Note Holder’s behalf), the Agent shall notify such party of the names and addresses of the other Note Holders, and such party may conclusively rely on such notification. To the extent the Trustee or another party is appointed as Agent hereunder, each Note Holder hereby designates such Person as its agent under this Section 15 solely for purposes of maintaining the Note Register.

 

In connection with any Transfer of a Note (but excluding any Pledgee unless and until it realizes on its Pledge), a transferee shall execute an assignment and assumption agreement (unless the transferee is a Securitization Trust and the related pooling and servicing agreement requires the parties thereto to comply with this Agreement), whereby such transferee assumes all of the obligations of the applicable Note Holder hereunder with respect to such Note thereafter accruing and agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, including the applicable restriction on Transfers set forth in Section 14, from and after the date of such assignment. No transfer of a Note may be made unless it is registered on the Note Register, and the Agent shall not recognize any attempted or purported transfer of any Note in violation of the provisions of Section 14 and this Section 15. Any such purported transfer shall be absolutely null and void and shall vest no rights in the purported transferee. Each Note Holder desiring to effect such transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Agent and the other Note Holders against any liability that may result if the transfer is not made in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.

Except as provided herein, including without limitation, with respect to the Trustee, Certificate Administrator, Master Servicer, Special Servicer, Non-Lead Master Servicer, Non-Lead Special Servicer, Non-Lead Trustee, none of the provisions of this Agreement shall be for the benefit of or enforceable by any Person not a party hereto.

(c)           Each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder represents to the Lead Securitization Note Holder (for the benefit of the Mortgage Loan Borrower) that it is not a Non-Exempt Person and that neither the Lead Securitization Note Holder nor the Mortgage Loan Borrower is obligated under applicable law to withhold Taxes on sums paid to it with respect to the Mortgage Loan or otherwise pursuant to this Agreement. Contemporaneously with the execution of this Agreement and from time to time as necessary during the term of this Agreement, each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder shall deliver to the Lead Securitization Note Holder or Servicer, as applicable, evidence satisfactory to the Lead Securitization Note Holder substantiating that such Note Holder is not a Non-Exempt Person and that the Lead Securitization Note Holder is not obligated under applicable law to withhold Taxes on sums paid to it with respect to the Mortgage Loan or otherwise under this Agreement. Without limiting the effect of the foregoing, (i) if a Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder is created or organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia, it shall satisfy the requirements of the preceding sentence by furnishing to the Lead Securitization Note Holder an Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 and (ii) if a Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder is not created or organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia, and if the payment of interest or other amounts by the Mortgage Loan Borrower is treated for United States income tax purposes as derived in whole or part from sources within the United States, such Note Holder shall satisfy the requirements of the preceding sentence by furnishing to the Lead Securitization Note Holder Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI, Form W-8IMY (with appropriate attachments) or Form W-8BEN, or successor forms, as may be required from time to time, duly executed by such Note Holder, as evidence of such Note Holder’s exemption from the withholding of United States tax with respect thereto.

Section 26.        Cooperation in Securitization.

 

(a)           Each Note Holder acknowledges that any Note Holder may elect, in its sole discretion, to include its Note in a Securitization. In connection with a Securitization and subject to the terms of the preceding sentence, at the request of the Lead Securitization Note Holder, each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder shall use reasonable efforts, at the Lead Securitization Note Holder’s expense, to satisfy, and to cooperate with the Lead Securitization Note Holder in attempting to cause the Mortgage Loan Borrower to satisfy, the market standards to which the Lead Securitization Note Holder customarily adheres or which may be reasonably required in the marketplace or by the Rating Agencies in connection with the Securitization, including, entering into (or consenting to, as applicable) any modifications to this Agreement or the Mortgage Loan Documents and to cooperate with the Lead Securitization Note Holder in attempting to cause the Mortgage Loan Borrower to execute such modifications to the Mortgage Loan Documents, in any such case, as may be reasonably requested by the Rating Agencies to effect the Securitization; provided, however, that either in connection with the Lead Securitization or otherwise at any time prior to the Lead Securitization, none of the Non-Lead Securitization Note Holders shall be required to modify or amend this Agreement or any Mortgage Loan Documents (or consent to such modification, as applicable) in connection therewith, if such modification or amendment would (i) change the interest allocable to, or the amount of any payments due to or priority of such payments to, a Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder or (ii) materially increase a Non-Lead Securitization Note Holders’ obligations or materially decrease any Non-Lead Securitization Note Holders’ rights, remedies or protections. In connection with the Lead Securitization, each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder agrees to provide for inclusion in any disclosure document relating to the Lead Securitization such information concerning such Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder and the related Non-Lead Securitization Note as the Lead Securitization Note Holder reasonably determines to be necessary or appropriate, and each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder covenants and agrees that it shall, at the Lead Securitization Note Holder’s expense, cooperate with the reasonable requests of each Rating Agency and Lead Securitization Note Holder in connection with the Lead Securitization (including, without limitation, reasonably cooperating with the Lead Securitization Noteholder (without any obligation to make additional representations and warranties) to enable the Lead Securitization Noteholder to make all necessary certifications and deliver all necessary opinions (including customary securities law opinions) in connection with the Mortgage Loan and the Lead Securitization), as well as in connection with all other matters and the preparation of any offering documents thereof and to review and respond reasonably promptly with respect to any information relating to a Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder and the related Non-Lead Securitization Note in any Securitization document. Each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder acknowledges that the information provided by it to the Lead Securitization Note Holder may be incorporated into the offering documents for the Lead Securitization. The Lead Securitization Note Holder and each Rating Agency shall be entitled to rely on the information supplied by, or on behalf of, each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder. The Lead Securitization Note Holder will reasonably cooperate with each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holder by providing all information reasonably requested that is in the Lead

 

41

 

 

Securitization Note Holder’s possession in connection with each Non-Lead Securitization Note Holders’ preparation of disclosure materials in connection with a Securitization.

All written notices so given shall be deemed effective upon receipt.

Section 29.        Certain Matters Affecting the Agent.

 

(a)           The Agent may request and/or rely upon and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon any officer’s certificate or assignment and assumption agreement delivered to the Agent pursuant to Section 14 and Section 15;

 

(b)           The Agent may consult with counsel and any opinion of counsel shall be full and complete authorization and protection in respect of any action taken or suffered or omitted by it hereunder in good faith and in accordance with such opinion of counsel;

 

(c)           The Agent shall be under no obligation to institute, conduct or defend any litigation hereunder or in relation hereto at the request, order or direction of any Note Holder pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, unless it has received indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it;

(e)           The Agent shall not be bound to make any investigation into the facts or matters stated in any officer’s certificate or assignment and assumption agreement delivered to the Agent pursuant to Section 15;

Section 30.        Termination and Resignation of Agent.

 

(a)           The Agent may resign at any time on ten (10) days’ prior notice, so long as a successor Agent, reasonably satisfactory to the Note Holders (it being agreed that a Servicer, the Trustee or a Certificate Administrator in a Securitization is satisfactory to the Note Holders), has agreed to be bound by this Agreement and perform the duties of the Agent hereunder. CCRE, as Initial Agent, may transfer its rights and obligations to a Servicer, the Trustee or the Certificate Administrator, as successor Agent, at any time without the consent of any Note Holder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Note Holders hereby agree that, simultaneously with the closing of the Lead Securitization, the Master Servicer shall be deemed to have been automatically appointed as the successor Agent under this Agreement in place of CCRE without any further notice or other action. The termination or resignation of such Master Servicer, as Master Servicer under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, shall be deemed a termination or resignation of such Master Servicer as Agent under this Agreement, and any successor master servicer shall be deemed to have been automatically appointed as the successor Agent under this Agreement in place thereof without any further notice or other action.

 

Section 31.        Resizing. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, for so long as an Initial Note Holder is the owner of a Non-Lead Securitization Note (the “Owned Note”), such Initial Note Holder shall have the right, subject to the terms of the Mortgage Loan Documents, to cause the Mortgage Loan Borrower to execute amended and restated notes or additional notes (in either case, “New Notes”) reallocating the principal of the Owned Note to such New Notes; or severing the Owned Note into one or more further “component” notes in the aggregate principal amount equal to the then outstanding principal balance of the Owned Note provided that (i) the aggregate principal balance of all outstanding New Notes following such amendments is no greater than the aggregate principal of the Owned Note prior to such amendments, (ii) all Notes continue to have the same weighted average interest rate as the Notes prior to such amendments, (iii) all Notes pay pro rata and on a pari passu basis and such reallocated or component notes shall be automatically subject to the terms of this Agreement, (iv) the Initial Note Holder holding the New Notes shall notify the Lead Securitization Note Holder, the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Certificate Administrator and the Trustee in writing of such modified allocations and principal amounts, and (v) the execution of such amendments and New Notes does not violate the Servicing Standard. If the Lead Securitization Note Holder so requests, the Initial Note Holder holding the New Notes (and any subsequent holder of such Notes) shall execute a confirmation of the continuing applicability of this Agreement to the New Notes, as so modified. Except for the foregoing reallocation and for modifications pursuant to the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement (as discussed in Section 5), no Note may be modified or amended without the consent of its holder and the consent of the holders of the other Notes. In connection with the foregoing (provided the

 

43

 

 

conditions set forth in (i) through (v) above are satisfied, with respect to (i) through (iv), as certified by the Initial Note Holder, on which certification the Master Servicer can rely), the Master Servicer is hereby authorized and directed to execute amendments to the Mortgage Loan Documents and this Agreement on behalf of any or all of the Note Holders, as applicable, solely for the purpose of reflecting such reallocation of principal. If more than one New Note is created hereunder, for purposes of exercising the rights of a Non-Controlling Note Holder hereunder, the “Non-Controlling Note Holder” of such New Notes shall be as provided in the definition of such term in this Agreement.
