interests in Specified FF&E to the providers of Indebtedness which may be incurred under said Section to the extent that such Indebtedness is permitted to be secured pursuant to Section 4.11 of the Mortgage Notes Indenture pursuant to clauses (2), (3) or (12) of the definition of Permitted Liens), the Improvements, all other personal property now or hereafter owned or leased by Trustor or in which Trustor has or will have any interest, to the extent that such property constitutes a part of the Trust Estate (whether or not such items are stored on the Site, the Project, the Improvements or elsewhere), Proceeds of the foregoing comprising a portion of the Trust Estate and all proceeds of insurance policies and consideration awards arising therefrom and all proceeds, products, substitutions, and accessions therefor and thereto, subject to Beneficiary’s rights to treat such property as real property as herein provided (collectively, the “Personal Property”).  Trustor shall execute any and all documents and writings, including, without limitation, financing statements pursuant to the UCC, as may be necessary or prudent to preserve and maintain the priority of the security interest granted hereby on property which may be deemed subject to the foregoing security agreement or as Beneficiary may reasonably request, and shall pay to Beneficiary on demand any reasonable expenses incurred by Beneficiary in connection with the preparation, execution and filing of any such documents.  Trustor hereby authorizes and empowers Beneficiary to execute and file, on Trustor’s behalf, all financing statements and refilings and continuations thereof as advisable to create, preserve and protect said security interest.  This Deed of Trust constitutes both a real property deed of trust and a “security agreement,” within the meaning of the UCC, and the Trust Estate includes both real and personal property and all other rights and interests, whether tangible or intangible in nature, of Trustor in the Trust Estate.  Trustor by executing and delivering this Deed of Trust has granted to Beneficiary, as security of the Obligations, a security interest in the Trust Estate.

 

(a)           Fixture Filing.  Without in any way limiting the generality of the immediately preceding paragraph or of the definition of the Trust Estate, this Deed of Trust constitutes a fixture filing under Section 9 502 of the UCC (NRS 104.9502(3)).  For such purposes, (i) the “debtor” is each Trustor and their respective addresses are the addresses given for each such Person in the initial paragraph of this Deed of Trust; (ii) the “secured party’ is Beneficiary, and its address for the purpose of obtaining information is the address given for it in the initial paragraph of this Deed of Trust; (iii) the real estate to which the fixtures are or are to become attached is Trustor’s interest in the Site, the Project and the Improvements; and (iv) the record owner of such real estate or interests therein is Trustor.

 

(b)           Remedies.  This Deed of Trust shall be deemed a security agreement as defined in the UCC and the remedies for any violation of the covenants, terms and conditions of the agreements herein contained shall include any or all of (i) those prescribed herein, and (ii) those available under applicable Legal Requirements, and (iii) those available under the UCC, all at Beneficiary’s sole election.  In addition, a photographic or other reproduction of this Deed of Trust shall be sufficient as a financing statement for filing wherever filing may be necessary to perfect or continue the security interest granted herein.

 



 

(c)           Derogation of Real Property.  It is the intention of the parties that the filing of a financing statement in the records normally having to do with personal property shall never be construed as in anyway derogating from or impairing the express declaration and intention of the parties hereto as hereinabove stated that everything used in connection with the production of Income from the Trust Estate and/or adapted for use therein and/or which is described or reflected in this Deed of Trust is, and at all times and for all purposes and in all proceedings both legal or equitable, shall be regarded as part of the real property encumbered by this Deed of Trust irrespective of whether (i) any such item is physically attached to the Improvements, (ii) serial numbers are used for the better identification of certain equipment items capable of being thus identified in a recital contained herein or in any list filed with Beneficiary, or (iii) any such item is referred to or reflected in any such financing statement so filed at any time.  It is the intention of the parties that the mention in any such financing statement of (1) rights in or to the proceeds of any fire and/or hazard insurance policy, or (2) any award in eminent domain proceedings for a taking or for loss of value, or (3) Trustor’s interest as lessor in any present or future Space Lease or rights to Rents, shall never be construed as in anyway altering any of the rights of Beneficiary as determined by this Deed of Trust or impugning the priority of Beneficiary’s real property Lien granted hereby or by any other recorded document, but such mention in the financing statement is declared to be for the protection of Beneficiary in the event any court or judge shall at any time hold with respect to the matters set forth in the foregoing clauses (1), (2) and (3) that notice of Beneficiary’s priority of interest to be effective against a particular class of Persons, including, but not limited to, the federal government and any subdivisions or entity of the federal government, must be filed in the UCC records.

 

(d)           Priority; Permitted Financing of Tangible Collateral.  All Personal Property of any nature whatsoever which is subject to the provisions of this security agreement shall be purchased or obtained by Trustor in its name and free and clear of any Lien or encumbrance, except for Permitted Liens, for use only in connection with the business and operation of the Project, and shall be and at all times remain free and clear of any lease or similar arrangement, chattel financing, installment sale agreement, security agreement and any encumbrance of like kind, so that Beneficiary’s security interest shall attach to and vest in Trustor for the benefit of Beneficiary, with the priority herein specified, immediately upon the installation or use of the Personal Property at the Site, the Project or the Improvements and Trustor warrants and represents that Beneficiary’s security interest in the Personal Property is a validly attached and binding security interest, properly perfected and prior to all other security interests therein subject to Permitted Liens.

 

(e)           Preservation of Contractual Rights of Collateral.  Trustor shall, prior to delinquency, default, or forfeiture, perform all obligations and satisfy all material conditions required on its part to be satisfied to preserve its rights and privileges under any contract, lease, license, permit, or other authorization (i) under which it holds any Tangible Collateral or (ii) which constitutes part of the Intangible Collateral, except where Trustor is contesting such obligations in good faith.

 



 

(f)            Removal of Collateral.  Except as permitted in the Mortgage Notes Indenture for damaged or obsolete Tangible Collateral which is either no longer usable or which is removed temporarily for repair or improvement or removed for replacement on the Trust Estate with Tangible Collateral of similar function or as otherwise permitted herein, none of the Tangible Collateral shall be removed from the Trust Estate without Beneficiary’s prior written consent.

 

(g)           Change of Name.  Trustor shall not change its corporate or business name, or do business within the State under any name other than such name, or any trade name(s) other than those as to which Trustor gives prior written notice to Beneficiary of its intent to use such trade names, or any other business names (if any) specified in the financing statements delivered to Beneficiary for filing in connection with the execution hereof, without providing Beneficiary with the additional financing statement(s) and any other similar documents deemed reasonably necessary by Beneficiary to assure that its security interest remains perfected and of undiminished priority in all such Personal Property notwithstanding such name change.

 

(h)           Release of Liens.  To the extent any property (including Specified FF&E) is financed by any lender pursuant to an FF&E Facility, the Trustee shall release the Liens in favor of the Beneficiary on such Specified FF&E and in connection therewith at the Trustor’s expense, execute and deliver to the Trustor such documents (including, without limitation UCC-3 termination statements) as the Trustor may reasonably request to evidence such termination.

 

1.10         Assignment of Rents and Leases.  The assignment of Rents and Leases set out above in Granting Clause (G) shall constitute an absolute and present assignment to Beneficiary, subject to the revocable license granted therein to Trustor to collect the Rents, and shall be fully operative without any further action on the part of any party, and specifically upon the occurrence of an Event of Default such license shall be automatically revoked and Beneficiary shall be entitled upon the occurrence of an Event of Default hereunder to all Rents and to enter into the Site, the Project and the Improvements to collect all such Rents until such time as such Event of Default is cured and such cure is accepted by the Beneficiary; provided, however, that Beneficiary shall not be obligated to take possession of the Trust Estate, or any portion thereof.  The absolute assignment contained in Granting Clause (G) shall not be deemed to impose upon Beneficiary any of the obligations or duties of Trustor provided in any such Space Lease (including, without limitation, any liability under the covenant of quiet enjoyment contained in any Space Lease in the event that any lessee shall have been joined as a party defendant in any action to foreclose this Deed of Trust and shall have been barred and foreclosed thereby of all right, title and interest and equity of redemption in the Trust Estate or any part thereof).

 

1.11         Beneficiary’s Cure of Trustor’s Default.  If Trustor defaults hereunder in the payment of any tax, assessment, Lien, encumbrance or other Imposition, in its obligation to furnish insurance hereunder, or in the performance or observance of any other covenant, condition or term of this Deed of Trust or the Cooperation Agreement, Beneficiary may, but is not obligated to, to preserve its interest in the Trust

 



 

Estate, perform or observe the same, but only upon not less than five Business Days notice to Trustor and all payments made (whether such payments are regular or accelerated payments) and reasonable costs and expenses incurred or paid by Beneficiary in connection therewith shall become due and payable immediately.  The amounts so incurred or paid by Beneficiary, together with interest thereon at the interest rate applicable to overdue principal set forth in Section 4.01 of the Mortgage Notes Indenture, from the date incurred until paid by Trustor, shall be added to the Obligations and secured by the Lien of this Deed of Trust.  Beneficiary is hereby empowered to enter and to authorize others to enter upon the Site, the Project or the Improvements or any part thereof for the purpose of performing or observing any such defaulted covenant, condition or term, without thereby becoming liable to Trustor or any Person in possession holding under Trustor.  No exercise of any rights under this Section 1.11 by Beneficiary shall cure or waive any Event of Default or notice of default hereunder or invalidate any act done pursuant hereto or to any such notice, but shall be cumulative of all other rights and remedies.

 

1.12         Use of Land.  Trustor covenants that the Trust Estate shall be used and operated in a manner reasonably consistent with the description of the Project in the Cooperation Agreement.

 

1.13         Affiliates and Restricted Subsidiaries.

 

(a)           Subject to Trust Deed.  Subject to compliance with requirements of applicable Nevada Gaming Laws, Trustor shall cause all of its Affiliates and Subsidiaries in any way involved with the operation of all or a portion of the Trust Estate to observe the covenants and conditions of this Deed of Trust to the extent necessary to give the full intended effect to such covenants and conditions and to protect and preserve the security of Beneficiary hereunder.  Trustor shall, at Beneficiary’s request, cause any such Affiliate or Restricted Subsidiary to execute and deliver to Beneficiary or Trustee such further instruments or documents as Beneficiary may reasonably deem necessary to effectuate the terms of this Section 1.13(a).

 

(b)           Restriction on Use of Subsidiary or Affiliate.  Except as permitted under the Notes, the Mortgage Notes Indenture or any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents, Trustor shall not use any Affiliate or Subsidiary in the operation of the Trust Estate, the Project or the Easements if such use would in any way impair the security for the Notes and the Mortgage Notes Indenture or cause a breach of any covenant of this Deed of Trust or of any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents.

CORPORATE LOAN PROVISIONS

 

2.1           Interaction with Indenture and Subsidiary Guaranty.

 



 

(a)           Incorporation by Reference.  All terms, covenants, conditions, provisions and requirements of the Mortgage Notes Indenture are incorporated by reference in this Deed of Trust.

 

(b)           Conflicts.  In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions of this Deed of Trust and those of the Mortgage Notes Indenture, the provisions of the Mortgage Notes Indenture shall govern.

 

2.2           Other Collateral.  This Deed of Trust is one of a number of security agreements to secure the Obligations delivered by or on behalf of Trustor and other Persons pursuant to the Mortgage Notes Indenture and the other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents and securing the Obligations secured hereunder.  All potential junior Lien claimants are placed on notice that, under any of the Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents or otherwise (such as by separate future unrecorded agreement between Trustor and Beneficiary), other collateral for the Obligations secured hereunder (i.e., collateral other than the Trust Estate) may, under certain circumstances, be released without a corresponding reduction in the total principal amount secured by this Deed of Trust.  Such a release would decrease the amount of collateral securing the Obligations, thereby increasing the burden on the remaining Trust Estate created and continued by this Deed of Trust.  No such release shall impair the priority of the Lien of this Deed of Trust.  By accepting its interest in the Trust Estate, each and every junior Lien claimant shall be deemed to have acknowledged the possibility of, and consented to, any such release.  Nothing in this paragraph shall impose any obligation upon Beneficiary.

 

2.3           Subordination to Bank Fee Deed of Trust.  Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, this Deed of Trust, including, without limitation, the security interest granted herein, the rights, powers and remedies of Trustee and Beneficiary and the obligations of Trustor set forth herein, shall, to the extent provided in the Intercreditor Agreement, be subject and subordinate to the Bank Deed of Trust.

 

ARTICLE THREE

DEFAULTS

 

3.1           Event of Default.  The term “Event of Default,” wherever used in this Deed of Trust, shall mean any one or more of the events of default listed in Section 6.01 of the Mortgage Notes Indenture and it shall be an Event of Default under this Deed of Trust if Trustor or any other “borrower” (as defined in NRS 106.310) who may send a notice pursuant to NRS 106.380(1) with respect to this Deed of Trust (i) delivers, sends or otherwise gives to Beneficiary (A) any notice of an election to terminate the operation of this Deed of Trust as security for any indebtedness secured by this instrument, including, without limitation, any obligation to repay any “future advance” (as defined in NRS 106.320) or “principal” (as defined in NRS 106.345), or (B) any other notice pursuant to NRS 106.380(1); (ii) records a statement pursuant to NRS 1206.380(3); or (iii) causes this Deed of Trust, any indebtedness secured by this instrument or Beneficiary to be subject to NRS 106.380(2), 106.380(3), or 106.400.

 



 

ARTICLE FOUR

REMEDIES

 

4.1           Acceleration of Maturity.  If an Event of Default occurs, Beneficiary may (except that such acceleration shall be automatic if the Event of Default is caused by reason of an Event of Default under Section 6.01(i) or (j) of the Mortgage Notes Indenture) declare the Notes and all Obligations or sums secured hereby, to be due and payable immediately, and upon such declaration such principal and interest and other sums shall immediately become due and payable without demand, presentment, notice or other requirements of any kind (all of which Trustor waives) notwithstanding anything in this Deed of Trust or any Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document or applicable law to the contrary.

 

4.2           Protective Advances.  If LVSI, Venetian or Trustor fails to make any payment or perform any other obligation under the Notes or any other Financing Agreement, then without thereby limiting Beneficiary’s other rights or remedies, waiving or releasing any of Trustor’s obligations, or imposing any obligation on Beneficiary, Beneficiary may either advance any amount owing or perform any or all actions that Beneficiary considers necessary or appropriate to cure such default.  All such advances shall constitute “Protective Advances.”  No sums advanced or performance rendered by Beneficiary shall cure, or be deemed a waiver of any Event of Default.

 

4.3           Institution of Equity Proceedings.  If an Event of Default occurs, Beneficiary may institute an action, suit or proceeding in equity for specific performance of the Notes, this Deed of Trust or any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document, all of which shall be specifically enforceable by injunction or other equitable remedy.  Trustor waives any defense based on laches or any applicable statute of limitations.

 

4.4           Beneficiary’s Power of Enforcement.

 

(a)           If an Event of Default occurs, Beneficiary shall be entitled, at its option and in its sole and absolute discretion, to prepare and record on its own behalf, or to deliver to Trustee for recording, if appropriate, written declaration of default and demand for sale and written Notice of Default and Election to Sell (NRS 107.080) (or other statutory notice) to cause the Trust Estate to be sold to satisfy the obligations hereof, and in the case of delivery to Trustee, Trustee shall cause said notice to be filed for record.

 

(b)           After the lapse of such time as may then be required by law following the recordation of said Notice of Breach and Election to Sell, and notice of sale having been given as then required by law, including compliance with all applicable Nevada Gaming Laws, Trustee without demand on Trustor, shall sell the Trust Estate or any portion thereof at the time and place fixed by it in said notice, either as a whole or in separate parcels, and in such order as it may determine, at public auction to the highest bidder, of cash in lawful money of the United States payable at the time of sale.  Trustee

 



 

may, for any cause it deems expedient, postpone the sale of all or any portion of said property until it shall be completed and, in every case, notice of postponement shall be given by public announcement thereof at the time and place last appointed for the sale and from time to time thereafter Trustee may postpone such sale by public announcement at the time fixed by the preceding postponement.  Trustee shall execute and deliver to the purchaser its Deed, Bill of Sale, or other instrument conveying said property so sold, but without any covenant or warranty, express or implied.  The recitals in such instrument of conveyance of any matters or facts shall be conclusive proof of the truthfulness thereof.  Any Person, including Beneficiary, may bid at the sale.

 

(c)           After deducting all costs, fees and expenses of Trustee and of this Deed of Trust, including, without limitation, costs of evidence of title and reasonable attorneys’ fees of Trustee or Beneficiary in connection with a sale, Trustee shall apply the proceeds of such sale to payment of all sums expended under the terms hereof not then repaid, with accrued interest at the rate applicable to overdue principal set forth in Section 4.01 of the Mortgage Notes Indenture to the payment of all other sums then secured hereby and the remainder, if any, to the Person or Persons legally entitled thereto as provided in NRS 40.462.

 

(d)           Subject to compliance with applicable Nevada Gaming Laws, if any Event of Default occurs, Beneficiary may, either with or without entry or taking possession of the Trust Estate, and without regard to whether or not the Obligations and other sums secured hereby shall be due and without prejudice to the right of Beneficiary thereafter to bring an action or proceeding to foreclose or any other action for any default existing at the time such earlier action was commenced, proceed by any appropriate action or proceeding:  (1) to enforce payment of the Obligations, to the extent permitted by law, or the performance of any term hereof or any other right; (2) to foreclose this Deed of Trust in any manner provided by law for the foreclosure of mortgages or deeds of trust on real property and to sell, as an entirety or in separate lots or parcels, the Trust Estate or any portion thereof pursuant to applicable Legal Requirements or under the judgment or decree of a court or courts of competent jurisdiction, and Beneficiary shall be entitled to recover in any such proceeding all costs and expenses incident thereto, including reasonable attorneys’ fees in such amount as shall be awarded by the court; (3) to exercise any or all of the rights and remedies available to it under the Mortgage Notes Indenture and the other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents; and (4) to pursue any other remedy available to it.  Beneficiary shall take action either by such proceedings or by the exercise of its powers with respect to entry or taking possession, or both, as Beneficiary may determine.

 

(e)           The remedies described in this Section 4.4 may be exercised with respect to all or any portion of the Personal Property, either simultaneously with the sale of any real property encumbered hereby or independent thereof.  Beneficiary shall at any time be permitted to proceed with respect to all or any portion of the Personal Property in any manner permitted by the UCC.  Trustor agrees that Beneficiary’s inclusion of all or any portion of the Personal Property (and all personal property that is subject to a security interest in favor, or for the benefit, of Beneficiary) in a sale or other remedy exercised with respect to the real property

 



 

encumbered hereby, as permitted by the UCC, is a commercially reasonable disposition of such property.

 

4.5           Beneficiary’s Right to Enter and Take Possession, Operate and Apply Income.

 

(a)           Subject to compliance with applicable Nevada Gaming Laws, if an Event of Default occurs, (i) Trustor, upon demand of Beneficiary, shall forthwith surrender to Beneficiary the actual possession and, if and to the extent permitted by law, Beneficiary itself, or by such officers or agents as it may appoint, may enter and take possession of all the Trust Estate including the Personal Property, without liability for trespass, damages or otherwise, and may exclude Trustor and its agents and employees wholly therefrom and may have joint access with Trustor to the books, papers and accounts of Trustor; and (ii) Trustor shall pay monthly in advance to Beneficiary on Beneficiary’s entry into possession, or to any receiver appointed to collect the Rents, all Rents then due and payable.

 

(b)           If Trustor shall for any reason fail to surrender or deliver the Trust Estate, the Personal Property or any part thereof after Beneficiary’s demand, Beneficiary may obtain a judgment or decree conferring on Beneficiary or Trustee the right to immediate possession or requiring Trustor to deliver immediate possession of all or part of such property to Beneficiary or Trustee and Trustor hereby specifically consents to the entry of such judgment or decree.  Trustor shall pay to Beneficiary or Trustee, upon demand, all reasonable costs and expenses of obtaining such judgment or decree and reasonable compensation to Beneficiary or Trustee, their attorneys and agents, and all such costs, expenses and compensation shall, until paid, be secured by the Lien of this Deed of Trust.

 

(c)           Subject to compliance with applicable Nevada Gaming Laws, upon every such entering upon or taking of possession, Beneficiary or Trustee may hold, store, use, operate, manage and control the Trust Estate and conduct the business thereof, and, from time to time in its sole and absolute discretion and without being under any duty to so act:

 

(i)            make all necessary and proper maintenance, repairs, renewals, replacements, additions, betterments and improvements thereto and thereon and purchase or otherwise acquire additional fixtures, personality and other property;

 

(ii)           insure or keep the Trust Estate insured;

 

(iii)          manage and operate the Trust Estate and exercise all the rights and powers of Trustor in their name or otherwise with respect to the same;

 

(iv)          enter into agreements with others to exercise the powers herein granted Beneficiary or Trustee, all as Beneficiary or Trustee from time to time may determine; and, subject to the absolute assignment of the Rents and Leases to Beneficiary, Beneficiary or Trustee may collect and receive all the Rents, including those

 



 

past due as well as those accruing thereafter; and shall apply the monies so received by Beneficiary or Trustee in such priority as Beneficiary may determine to (1) the payment of interest and principal due and payable on the Notes, (2) the deposits for Impositions and insurance premiums due, (3) the cost of insurance, Impositions and other proper charges upon the Trust Estate or any part thereof; (4) the compensation, expenses and disbursements of the agents, attorneys and other representatives of Beneficiary or Trustee; and (5) any other charges or costs required to be paid by Trustor under the terms hereof; and

 

(v)           rent or sublet the Trust Estate or any portion thereof for any purpose permitted by this Deed of Trust.

 

Beneficiary or Trustee shall surrender possession of the Trust Estate and the Personal Property to Trustor only when all that is due upon such interest and principal, Imposition and insurance deposits, and all amounts under any of the terms of the Mortgage Notes Indenture or this Deed of Trust, shall have been paid and other Obligations performed.  The same right of taking possession, however, shall exist if any subsequent Event of Default shall occur and be continuing.

 

4.6           Leases.  Beneficiary is authorized to foreclose this Deed of Trust subject to the rights of any tenants of the Trust Estate, and the failure to make any such tenants parties defendant to any such foreclosure proceedings and to foreclose their rights shall not be, nor be asserted by Trustor to be, a defense to any proceedings instituted by Beneficiary to collect the sums secured hereby or to collect any deficiency remaining unpaid after the foreclosure sale of the Trust Estate, or any portion thereof.  Unless otherwise agreed by Beneficiary in writing, all Space Leases executed subsequent to the date hereof, or any part thereof, shall be subordinate and inferior to the Lien of this Deed of Trust; provided, however, from time to time Beneficiary may execute and record among the land records of the jurisdiction where this Deed of Trust is recorded, subordination statements with respect to such of said Space Leases as Beneficiary may designate in its sole discretion, whereby the Space Leases so designated by Beneficiary shall be made superior to the Lien of this Deed of Trust for the term set forth in such subordination statement.  From and after the recordation of such subordination statements, and for the respective periods as may be set forth therein, the Space Leases therein referred to shall be superior to the Lien of this Deed of Trust and shall not be affected by any foreclosure hereof.  All such Space Leases shall contain a provision to the effect that the Trustor and Space Lessee recognize the right of Beneficiary to elect and to effect such subordination of this Deed of Trust and consents thereto.

 

4.7           Purchase by Beneficiary.  Upon any foreclosure sale (whether judicial or nonjudicial), Beneficiary may bid for and purchase the property subject to such sale and, upon compliance with the terms of sale, may hold, retain and possess and dispose of such property in its own absolute right without further accountability.

 

4.8           Waiver of Appraisement, Valuation, Stay, Extension and Redemption Laws.  Trustor agrees to the full extent permitted by Legal Requirements that if an Event of Default occurs, neither Trustor nor anyone claiming through or under

 



 

it shall or will set up, claim or seek to take advantage of any appraisement, valuation, stay, extension or redemption laws now or hereafter in force, in order to prevent or hinder the enforcement or foreclosure of this Deed of Trust or the absolute sale of the Trust Estate or any portion thereof or the final and absolute putting into possession thereof, immediately after such sale, of the purchasers thereof, and Trustor for itself and all who may at any time claim through or under it, hereby waives, to the full extent that it may lawfully so do, the benefit of all such Legal Requirements, and any and all right to have the assets comprising the Trust Estate marshalled upon any foreclosure of the Lien hereof and agrees that Trustee or any court having jurisdiction to foreclose such Lien may sell the Trust Estate in part or as an entirety.

 

4.9           Receiver.  If an Event of Default occurs, Beneficiary, to the extent permitted by law and subject to compliance with all applicable Nevada Gaming Laws, and without regard to the value, adequacy or occupancy of the security for the Obligations and other sums secured hereby, shall be entitled as a matter of right if it so elects to the appointment of a receiver to enter upon and take possession of the Trust Estate and to collect all Rents and apply the same as the court may direct, and such receiver may be appointed by any court of competent jurisdiction upon application by Beneficiary.  Beneficiary may have a receiver appointed without notice to Trustor or any third party, and Beneficiary may waive any requirement that the receiver post a bond.  Beneficiary shall have the power to designate and select the Person who shall serve as the receiver and to negotiate all terms and conditions under which such receiver shall serve.  Any receiver appointed on Beneficiary’s behalf may be an Affiliate of Beneficiary.  The expenses, including receiver’s fees, attorneys’ fees, costs and agent’s compensation, incurred pursuant to the powers herein contained shall be secured by this Deed of Trust.  The right to enter and take possession of and to manage and operate the Trust Estate and to collect all Rents, whether by a receiver or otherwise, shall be cumulative to any other right or remedy available to Beneficiary under this Deed of Trust, the Mortgage Notes Indenture or otherwise available to Beneficiary and may be exercised concurrently therewith or independently thereof.  Beneficiary shall be liable to account only for such Rents (including, without limitation, security deposits) actually received by Beneficiary, whether received pursuant to this Section 4.9 or any other provision hereof.  Notwithstanding the appointment of any receiver or other custodian, Beneficiary shall be entitled as pledgee to the possession and control of any cash, deposits, or instruments at the time held by, or payable or deliverable under the terms of this Deed of Trust to, Beneficiary.

 

4.10         Suits to Protect the Trust Estate.  Beneficiary shall have the power and authority to institute and maintain any suits and proceedings as Beneficiary, in its sole and absolute discretion, may deem advisable (a) to prevent any impairment of the Trust Estate by any acts which may be unlawful or in violation of this Deed of Trust, (b) to preserve or protect its interest in the Trust Estate, or (c) to restrain the enforcement of or compliance with any Legal Requirement that may be unconstitutional or otherwise invalid, if the enforcement of or compliance with such enactment, rule or order might impair the security hereunder or be prejudicial to Beneficiary’s interest.

 



 

4.11         Proofs of Claim.  In the case of any receivership, Insolvency, Bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, composition or other judicial proceedings affecting Trustor, or, to the extent the same would result in an Event of Default hereunder, any Subsidiary, or any guarantor, co maker or endorser of any of Trustor’s obligations, its creditors or its property, Beneficiary, to the extent permitted by law, shall be entitled to file such proofs of claim or other documents as it may deem to be necessary or advisable in order to have its claims allowed in such proceedings for the entire amount due and payable by Trustor under the Notes, any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document, at the date of the institution of such proceedings, and for any additional amounts which may become due and payable by Trustor after such date.

 

4.12         Trustor to Pay the Notes on Any Default in Payment; Application of Monies by Beneficiary.

 

(a)           In case of a foreclosure sale of all or any part of the Trust Estate and of the application of the proceeds of sale to the payment of the sums secured hereby, Beneficiary shall be entitled to enforce payment from Trustor of any additional amounts then remaining due and unpaid with respect to the Obligations and to recover judgment against Trustor for any portion thereof remaining unpaid, with interest at the interest rate applicable to overdue principal as set forth in Section 4.01 of the Mortgage Notes Indenture.

 

(b)           Trustor hereby agrees to the extent permitted by law, that no recovery of any such judgment by Beneficiary or other action by Beneficiary and no attachment or levy of any execution upon any of the Trust Estate or any other property shall in any way affect the Lien and security interest of this Deed of Trust upon the Trust Estate or any part thereof or any Lien, rights, powers or remedies of Beneficiary hereunder, but such Lien, rights, powers and remedies shall continue unimpaired as before.

 

4.13         Delay or Omission; No Waiver.  No delay or omission of Beneficiary to exercise any right, power or remedy upon any Event of Default shall exhaust or impair any such right, power or remedy or shall be construed to waive any such Event of Default or to constitute acquiescence therein.  Every right, power and remedy given to Beneficiary whether contained herein or in the Mortgage Notes Indenture or otherwise available to Beneficiary may be exercised from time to time and as often as may be deemed expedient by Beneficiary.

 

4.14         No Waiver of One Default to Affect Another.  No waiver of any Event of Default hereunder shall extend to or affect any subsequent or any other Event of Default then existing, or impair any rights, powers or remedies consequent thereon.  If Beneficiary or, to the extent applicable under the Mortgage Notes Indenture, the holders of the portion of the principal amount of the then outstanding Notes required to approve such action thereunder:  (a) grants forbearance or an extension of time for the payment of any sums secured hereby; (b) takes other or additional security for the payment thereof; (c) waives or does not exercise any right granted in the Notes, the Mortgage Notes Indenture, this Deed of Trust or any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document;

 



 

(d) releases any part of the Trust Estate from the Lien or security interest of this Deed of Trust or any other instrument securing the Obligations; (e) consents to the filing of any map, plat or replat of the Site (to the extent such consent is required); (f) consents to the granting of any easement on the Site, the Project or the Improvements (to the extent such consent is required); or (g) makes or consents to any agreement changing the terms of this Deed of Trust, the Subsidiary Guaranty or any other Loan Document for the benefit of Beneficiary subordinating the Lien or any charge hereof, no such act or omission shall release, discharge, modify, change or affect the original liability of Trustor under the Notes, this Deed of Trust or any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document or otherwise, or any subsequent purchaser of the Trust Estate or any part thereof or any maker, co signer, surety or guarantor.  No such act or omission shall preclude Beneficiary from exercising any right, power or privilege herein granted or intended to be granted in case of any Event of Default then existing or of any subsequent Event of Default, nor, except as otherwise expressly provided in an instrument or instruments executed by Beneficiary, shall the Lien or security interest of this Deed of Trust be altered thereby, except to the extent expressly provided in any releases, maps, easements or subordinations described in clause (d), (e), (f) or (g) above of this Section 4.14.  In the event of the sale or transfer by operation of law or otherwise of all or any part of the Trust Estate, Beneficiary, without notice to any Person is hereby authorized and empowered to deal with any such vendee or transferee with reference to the Trust Estate or the Obligations secured hereby, or with reference to any of the terms or conditions hereof, as fully and to the same extent as it might deal with the original parties hereto and without in any way releasing or discharging any of the liabilities or undertakings hereunder, or waiving its right to declare such sale or transfer an Event of Default as provided herein.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Deed of Trust or any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document, (i) in the case of any non-monetary Event of Default, Beneficiary may continue to accept payments due hereunder without thereby waiving the existence of such or any other Event of Default and (ii) in the case of any monetary Event of Default, Beneficiary may accept partial payments of any sums due hereunder without thereby waiving the existence of such Event of Default if the partial payment is not sufficient to completely cure such Event of Default.

 

4.15         Discontinuance of Proceedings; Position of Parties Restored.  If Beneficiary shall have proceeded to enforce any right or remedy under this Deed of Trust by foreclosure, entry of judgment or otherwise and such proceedings shall have been discontinued or abandoned for any reason, or such proceedings shall have resulted in a final determination adverse to Beneficiary, then and in every such case Trustor and Beneficiary shall be restored to their former positions and rights hereunder, and all rights, powers and remedies of Beneficiary shall continue as if no such proceedings had occurred or had been taken.

 

4.16         Remedies Cumulative.  No right, power or remedy, including without limitation remedies with respect to any security for the Obligations, conferred upon or reserved to Beneficiary by this Deed of Trust or any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document is exclusive of any other right, power or remedy, but each

 



 

and every such right, power and remedy shall be cumulative and concurrent and shall be in addition to any other right, power and remedy given hereunder or under any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document, now or hereafter existing at law, in equity or by statute, and Beneficiary shall be entitled to resort to such rights, powers, remedies or security as Beneficiary shall in its sole and absolute discretion deem advisable.

 

4.17         Interest After Event of Default.  If an Event of Default shall have occurred and is continuing, all outstanding and unpaid Obligations under the Notes and this Deed of Trust shall, at Beneficiary’s option, bear interest at the rate applicable to overdue principal set forth in Section 4.01 of the Mortgage Notes Indenture until such Event of Default has been cured.  Trustor’s obligation to pay such interest shall be secured by this Deed of Trust and the other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents.

 

4.18         Foreclosure; Expenses of Litigation.  If Trustee forecloses, reasonable attorneys’ fees for services in the supervision of said foreclosure proceeding shall be allowed to the Trustee and Beneficiary as part of the foreclosure costs.  In the event of foreclosure of the Lien hereof, there shall be allowed and included as additional Obligations all reasonable expenditures and expenses which may be paid or incurred by or on behalf of Beneficiary for attorneys’ fees, appraiser’s fees, outlays for documentary and expert evidence, stenographers’ charges, publication costs, and costs (which may be estimated as to items to be expended after foreclosure sale or entry of the decree) of procuring all such abstracts of title, title searches and examinations, title insurance policies and guarantees, and similar data and assurances with respect to title as Beneficiary may deem reasonably advisable either to prosecute such suit or to evidence to a bidder at any sale which may be had pursuant to such decree the true condition of the title to or the value of the Trust Estate or any portion thereof.  All expenditures and expenses of the nature in this Section 4.18 mentioned, and such expenses and fees as may be incurred in the protection of the Trust Estate and the maintenance of the Lien and security interest of this Deed of Trust, including the fees of any attorney employed by Beneficiary in any litigation or proceeding affecting this Deed of Trust or any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document, the Trust Estate or any portion thereof, including, without limitation, civil, probate, appellate and bankruptcy proceedings, or in preparation for the commencement or defense of any proceeding or threatened suit or proceeding, shall be immediately due and payable by Trustor, with interest thereon at the rate applicable to overdue principal set forth in Section 4.01 of the Mortgage Notes Indenture, and shall be secured by this Deed of Trust and the other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents.  Trustee waives its right to any statutory fee in connection with any judicial or nonjudicial foreclosure of the Lien hereof and agrees to accept a reasonable fee for such services.

 

4.19         Deficiency Judgments.  If after foreclosure of this Deed of Trust or Trustee’s sale hereunder, there shall remain any deficiency with respect to any Obligations, and Beneficiary shall institute any proceedings to recover such deficiency or deficiencies, all such amounts shall continue to bear interest at the rate applicable to overdue principal set forth in Section 4.01 of the Mortgage Notes Indenture.  Trustor

 



 

waives any defense to Beneficiary’s recovery against Trustor of any deficiency after any foreclosure sale of the Trust Estate.  Trustor expressly waives any defense or benefits that may be derived from any statute granting Trustor any defense to any such recovery by Beneficiary.  In addition, Beneficiary and Trustee shall be entitled to recovery of all of their reasonable costs and expenditures (including without limitation any court imposed costs) in connection with such proceedings, including their reasonable attorneys’ fees, appraisal fees and the other costs, fees and expenditures referred to in Section 4.18 above.  This provision shall survive any foreclosure or sale of the Trust Estate, any portion thereof and/or the extinguishment of the Lien hereof.

 

4.20         Waiver of July Trial.  Beneficiary and Trustor each waive any right to have a jury participate in resolving any dispute whether sounding in contract, tort or otherwise arising out of, connected with, related to or incidental to the relationship established between them in connection with the Obligations, this Deed of Trust or any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document.  Any such disputes shall be resolved in a bench trial without a jury.

 

4.21         Exculpation of Beneficiary.  The acceptance by Beneficiary of the assignment contained herein with all of the rights, powers, privileges and authority created hereby shall not, prior to entry upon and taking possession of the Trust Estate by Beneficiary, be deemed or construed to make Beneficiary a “mortgagee in possession”; nor thereafter or at any time or in any event obligate Beneficiary to appear in or defend any action or proceeding relating to the Space Leases, the Rents or the Trust Estate, or to take any action hereunder or to expend any money or incur any expenses or perform or discharge any obligation, duty or liability under any Space Lease or to assume any obligation or responsibility for any security deposits or other deposits except to the extent such deposits are actually received by Beneficiary, nor shall Beneficiary, prior to such entry and taking, be liable in any way for any injury or damage to person or property sustained by any Person in or about the Trust Estate.

 

ARTICLE FIVE

RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF TRUSTEE;
OTHER PROVISIONS RELATING TO TRUSTEE

 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Deed of Trust, Trustor and Beneficiary agree as follows.

 

5.1           Exercise of Remedies by Trustee.  To the extent that this Deed of Trust or applicable law, including all applicable Nevada Gaming Laws, authorizes or empowers, or does not require approval for, Beneficiary to exercise any remedies set forth in Article 4 hereof or otherwise, or perform any acts in connection therewith, Trustee (but not to the exclusion of Beneficiary unless so required under the law of the State) shall have the power to exercise any or all such remedies, and to perform any acts provided for in this Deed of Trust in connection therewith, all for the benefit of Beneficiary and on Beneficiary’s behalf in accordance with applicable law of the State.  In connection therewith, Trustee:  (a) shall not exercise, or waive the exercise of, any

 



 

Beneficiary’s remedies (other than any rights of Trustee to any indemnity or reimbursement), except at Beneficiary’s request, and (b) shall exercise, or waive the exercise of, any or all of Beneficiary’s remedies at Beneficiary’s request, and in accordance with Beneficiary’s directions as to the manner of such exercise or waiver.  Trustee may, however, decline to follow Beneficiary’s request or direction if Trustee shall be advised by counsel that the action or proceeding, or manner thereof, so directed may not lawfully be taken or waived.

 

5.2           Rights and Privileges of Trustee.  To the extent that this Deed of Trust requires Trustor to indemnify Beneficiary or reimburse Beneficiary for any expenditures Beneficiary may incur, Trustee shall be entitled to the same indemnity and the same rights to reimbursement of expenses as Beneficiary, subject to such limitations and conditions as would apply in the case of Beneficiary.  To the extent that this Deed of Trust negates or limits Beneficiary’s liability as to any matter, Trustee shall be entitled to the same negation or limitation of liability.  To the extent that Trustor, pursuant to this Deed of Trust, appoints Beneficiary as Trustor’s attorney in fact for any purpose, Beneficiary or (when so instructed by Beneficiary) Trustee shall be entitled to act on Trustor’s behalf without joinder or confirmation by the other.

 

5.3           Resignation or Replacement of Trustee.  Trustee may resign by an instrument in writing addressed to Beneficiary, and Trustee may be removed at any time with or without cause (i.e., in Beneficiary’s sole and absolute discretion) by an instrument in writing executed by Beneficiary.  In case of the death, resignation, removal or disqualification of Trustee or if for any reason Beneficiary shall deem it desirable to appoint a substitute, successor or replacement Trustee to act instead of Trustee originally named (or in place of any substitute, successor or replacement Trustee), then Beneficiary shall have the right and is hereby authorized and empowered to appoint a successor, substitute or replacement Trustee, without any formality other than appointment and designation in writing executed by Beneficiary, which instrument shall be recorded if required by the law of the State.  The laws of the State (including, without limitation, the Nevada Gaming Laws) shall govern the qualification of any Trustee.  The authority conferred upon Trustee by this Deed of Trust shall automatically extend to any and all other successor, substitute and replacement Trustee(s) successively until the obligations secured hereunder have been paid in full or the Trust Estate has been sold hereunder or released in accordance with the provisions of the Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents.  Beneficiary’s written appointment and designation of any Trustee shall be full evidence of Beneficiary’s right and authority to make the same and of all facts therein recited.  No confirmation, authorization, approval or other action by Trustor shall be required in connection with any resignation or other replacement of Trustee.

 

5.4           Authority of Beneficiary.  If Beneficiary is a banking corporation, state banking corporation or a national banking association and the instrument of appointment of any successor or replacement Trustee is executed on Beneficiary’s behalf by an officer of such corporation, state banking corporation or national banking association, then such appointment shall be conclusively presumed to be executed with

 



 

authority and shall be valid and sufficient without proof of any action by the board of directors or any superior officer of Beneficiary.

 

5.5           Effect of Appointment of Successor Trustee.  Upon the appointment and designation of any successor, substitute or replacement Trustee, and subject to compliance with applicable Nevada Gaming Laws and other applicable Legal Requirements, Trustee’s entire estate and title in the Trust Estate shall vest in the designated successor, substitute or replacement Trustee.  Such successor, substitute or replacement Trustee shall thereupon succeed to and shall hold, possess and execute all the rights, powers, privileges, immunities and duties herein conferred upon Trustee.  All references herein to Trustee shall be deemed to refer to Trustee (including any successor or substitute appointed and designated as herein provided) from time to time acting hereunder.

 

5.6           Confirmation of Transfer and Succession.  Upon the written request of Beneficiary or of any successor, substitute or replacement Trustee, any former Trustee ceasing to act shall execute and deliver an instrument transferring to such successor, substitute or replacement Trustee all of the right, title, estate and interest in the Trust Estate of Trustee so ceasing to act, together with all the rights, powers, privileges, immunities and duties herein conferred upon Trustee, and shall duly assign, transfer and deliver all properties and moneys held by said Trustee hereunder to said successor, substitute or replacement Trustee.

 

5.7           Exculpation.  Trustee shall not be liable for any error of judgment or act done by Trustee in good faith, or otherwise be responsible or accountable under any circumstances whatsoever, except for Trustee’s gross negligence, willful misconduct or knowing violation of any Legal Requirement.  Trustee shall have the right to rely on any instrument, document or signature authorizing or supporting any action taken or proposed to be taken by it hereunder, believed by it in good faith to be genuine.  All moneys received by Trustee shall, until used or applied as herein provided, be held in trust for the purposes for which they were received, but need not be segregated in any manner from any other moneys (except to the extent required by law).  Trustee shall be under no liability for interest on any moneys received by it hereunder.

 

5.8           Endorsement and Execution of Documents.  Upon Beneficiary’s written request, Trustee shall, without liability or notice to Trustor, execute, consent to, or join in any instrument or agreement in connection with or necessary to effectuate the purposes of the Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents.  Trustor hereby irrevocably designates Trustee as its attorney in fact to execute, acknowledge and deliver, on Trustor’s behalf and in Trustor’s name, all instruments or agreements necessary to implement any provision(s) of this Deed of Trust or to further perfect the Lien created by this Deed of Trust on the Trust Estate.  This power of attorney shall be deemed to be coupled with an interest and shall survive any disability of Trustor.

 

5.9           Multiple Trustees.  If Beneficiary appoints multiple trustees, then any Trustee, individually, may exercise all powers granted to Trustee under this instrument, without the need for action by any other Trustee(s).

 



 

5.10         Terms of Trustee’s Acceptance.  Trustee accepts the trust created by this Deed of Trust upon the following terms and conditions:

 

(a)           Delegation.  Trustee may exercise any of its powers through appointment of attorney(s) in fact or agents.

 

(b)           Counsel.  Trustee may select and employ legal counsel (including any law firm representing Beneficiary).  Trustor shall reimburse all reasonable legal fees and expenses that Trustee may thereby incur.

 

(c)           Security.  Trustee shall be under no obligation to take any action upon any Event of Default unless furnished security or indemnity, in form satisfactory to Trustee, against costs, expenses, and liabilities that Trustee may incur.

 

(d)           Costs and Expenses.  Trustor shall reimburse Trustee, as part of the Obligations secured hereunder, for all reasonable disbursements and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses and any expenses incurred by Trustee in complying with the Nevada Gaming Laws and Gaming Licenses) incurred by reason of and as provided for in this Deed of Trust, including any of the foregoing incurred in Trustee’s administering and executing the trust created by this Deed of Trust and performing Trustee’s duties and exercising Trustee’s powers under this Deed of Trust.

 

(e)           Release.  Upon satisfaction of the conditions for reconveyance contained in Section 6.10 hereof, Beneficiary shall request that Trustee release this Deed of Trust and Trustee shall release this Deed of Trust and reconvey to the Trust Estate in accordance with Section 6.10 hereof, provided, however, that Trustor shall pay all costs of recordation, if any, and all of Trustee’s and Beneficiary’s costs and expenses in connection with such release, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees.

6.7           Estoppel Certificates.  Within ten (10) Business Days after Beneficiary’s written request, Trustor shall from time to time execute a certificate, in recordable form (an “Estoppel Certificate”), stating, except to the extent it would be inaccurate to so state:  (a) the current amount of the Obligations secured hereunder and all elements thereof, including principal, interest, and all other elements; (b) that Trustor has no defense, offset, claim, counterclaim, right of recoupment, deduction, or reduction against any of the Obligations secured hereunder; (c) that none of the Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents have been amended, whether orally or in writing; (d) that Trustor has no claims against Beneficiary of any kind; (e) that any power of attorney granted to Beneficiary is in full force and effect; and (f) such other matters relating to this Deed of Trust, any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents and the relationship of Trustor and Beneficiary as Beneficiary shall request.  In addition, the Estoppel Certificate shall set forth the reasons why it would be inaccurate to make any of the foregoing assurances (“a” through “f”).

 

6.8           Waiver of Setoff and Counterclaim.  All amounts due under this Deed of Trust, the Notes, or any other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Document shall be payable without setoff, counterclaim or any deduction whatsoever.  Trustor hereby waives the right to assert a counterclaim (other than a compulsory counterclaim) in any action or proceeding brought against it by Beneficiary and/or any Mortgage Notes Holder(s) under the Mortgage Notes Indenture, or arising out of or in any way connected with this Deed of Trust or the other Mortgage Notes Indenture Security Documents or the Obligations.

 

6.9           Governing Law.  The Mortgage Notes Indenture and the Notes provide that they are governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York.  This Deed of Trust shall also be construed under and governed by the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to the conflicts of law rules and principles of the State of New York; provided, however, that (i) the terms and provisions of this Deed of Trust pertaining to the priority, perfection, enforcement or realization by Beneficiary of its respective rights and remedies under this Deed of Trust with respect to the Trust Estate shall be governed and construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State without giving effect to the conflicts of law rules and principles of the State; (ii) Trustor agrees that to the extent deficiency judgments are available under the laws of the State after a foreclosure (judicial or nonjudicial) of the Trust Estate, or any portion thereof, or any other realization thereon by Beneficiary or any Mortgage Notes Holder(s) under the Mortgage Notes Indenture, Beneficiary or such Mortgage Notes Holder(s), as the case may be, shall have the right to seek such a deficiency judgment against Trustor in the State; and (iii) Trustor agrees that if Beneficiary or any Mortgage Notes Holder(s) under the Mortgage Notes Indenture obtains a deficiency judgment in another state against Trustor, then Beneficiary or such Mortgage Notes Holder(s), as the case may be, shall have the right to enforce such judgment in the State to the extent permitted under the laws of the State, as well as in

 



 

other states.  Nothing contained in this Section 6.9 shall be deemed to expand the limitations set forth in Section 13.08 of the Mortgage Notes Indenture.

 

6.10         Reconveyance.  In the event that (i) the Obligations are indefeasibly repaid in full, (ii) any part of the Trust Estate is sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of by Trustor in accordance with the Mortgage Notes Indenture or (iii) any part of the Trust Estate is otherwise released in accordance with the Mortgage Notes Indenture or with the consent of the Mortgage Notes Indenture Trustee, the Trust Estate (in the case of clause (i) of this Section 6.10) or portion thereof (in the case of clauses (ii) or (iii) of this Section 6.10) will be sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of, and released free and clear of the Liens created by this Deed of Trust and the Beneficiary, at the request and expense of the Trustor, will duly and promptly assign, transfer, deliver and release to the Trustor or its designee (without recourse and without any representation or warranty) such of the Trust Estate as is then being (or has been) so sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of or released.  In connection with any disposition or release pursuant to this Section 6.10, Beneficiary shall, at Trustor’s expense, cause Trustee to reconvey, without warranty the Trust Estate or portion thereof being disposed or released, as the case may be, and to execute and deliver to Trustor such documents (including UCC-3 termination statements) as Trustor may reasonably request.  The recitals in such reconveyance of any matters or facts shall be conclusive proof of the truthfulness thereof.  The grantee in such reconveyance may be described as “the person or persons legally entitled thereto.”

 

6.11         Attorneys’ Fees.  Without limiting any other provision contained herein, Trustor agrees to pay all costs of Beneficiary or Trustee incurred in connection with the enforcement of this Deed of Trust, the Subsidiary Guaranty or the Notes, including, without limitation, all reasonable attorneys’ fees whether or not suit is commenced, and including, without limitation, fees incurred in connection with any probate, appellate, bankruptcy, deficiency or any other litigation proceedings, all of which sums shall be secured hereby.

 

6.12         Late Charges.  By accepting payment of any sum secured hereby after its due date, Beneficiary does not waive its right to collect any late charge thereon or interest thereon at the interest rate on the Notes, if so provided, not then paid or its right either to require prompt payment when due of all other sums so secured or to declare default for failure to pay any amounts not so paid.

 

6.13         Cost of Accounting.  Trustor shall pay to Beneficiary, for and on account of the preparation and rendition of any accounting, which Trustor may be entitled to require under any law or statute now or hereafter providing therefor, the reasonable costs thereof.

 

6.14         Right of Entry.  Subject to compliance with applicable Nevada Gaming Laws and the terms of the Space Leases, Beneficiary may at any reasonable time or times and on reasonable prior written notice to Trustor make or cause to be made entry upon and inspections of the Trust Estate or any part thereof in person or by agent.

 



 

6.15         Corrections.  Trustor shall, upon request of Beneficiary or Trustee, promptly correct any defect, error or omission which may be discovered in the contents of this Deed of Trust (including, but not limited to, in the exhibits and schedules attached hereto) or in the execution or acknowledgement hereof, and shall execute, acknowledge and deliver such further instruments and do such further acts as may be necessary or as may be reasonably requested by Trustee to carry out more effectively the purposes of this Deed of Trust, to subject to the Lien and security interest hereby created any of Trustor’s properties, rights or interest covered or intended to be covered hereby, and to perfect and maintain such Lien and security interest.

 

6.16         Statute of Limitations.  To the fullest extent allowed by the law, the right to plead, use or assert any statute of limitations as a plea or defense or bar of any kind, or for any purpose, to any debt, demand or obligation secured or to be secured hereby, or to any complaint or other pleading or proceeding filed, instituted or maintained for the purpose of enforcing this Deed of Trust or any rights hereunder, is hereby waived by Trustor.

 

6.17         Subrogation.  Should the proceeds of any loan or advance made by Beneficiary or any Mortgage Note Holder(s) under the Mortgage Notes Indenture to Trustor, repayment of which is hereby secured, or any part thereof, or any amount paid out or advanced by Beneficiary or any Mortgage Note Holder(s) under the Mortgage Notes Indenture, be used directly or indirectly to pay off, discharge, or satisfy, in whole or in part, any prior or superior Lien or encumbrance upon the Trust Estate, or any part thereof, then, as additional security hereunder, Trustee, on behalf of Beneficiary, shall be subrogated to any and all rights, superior titles, Liens, and equities owned or claimed by any owner or holder of said outstanding Liens, charges, and indebtedness, however remote, regardless of whether said Liens, charges, and indebtedness are acquired by assignment or have been released of record by the holder thereof upon payment.

 

6.18         Joint and Several Liability.  All obligations of Trustor hereunder, if more than one, are joint and several.  Recourse for deficiency after sale hereunder may be had against the property of Trustor, without, however, creating a present or other Lien or charge thereon.

 

6.19         Homestead.  Trustor hereby waives and renounces all homestead and exemption rights provided by the constitution and the laws of the United States and of any state, in and to the Trust Estate as against the collection of the Obligations, or any part hereof.

 

6.20         Context.  In this Deed of Trust, whenever the context so requires, the neuter includes the masculine and feminine, and the singular including the plural, and vice versa.

 

6.21         Time.  Time is of the essence of each and every term, covenant and condition hereof.  Unless otherwise specified herein, any reference to “days” in this Deed of Trust shall be deemed to mean “calendar days.”

 



 

6.22         Interpretation.  As used in this Deed of Trust unless the context clearly requires otherwise:   The terms “herein” or “hereunder” and similar terms without reference to a particular section shall refer to the entire Deed of Trust and not just to the section in which such terms appear.

 

6.23         Effect of NRS § 107.030.  To the extent not inconsistent with the other provisions of this Deed of Trust, the following covenants are hereby adopted and made a part of this Deed of Trust:  Nos. 1; 2 (pursuant to Section 1.5 above); 3; 4 (at the Default Rate); 5; 6; 7 (in a reasonable percentage); 8 and 9 of NRS 107.030.

 

6.24         Amendments.  This Deed of Trust cannot be waived, changed, discharged or terminated orally, but only by an instrument in writing signed by the party against whom enforcement of any waiver, change, discharge or termination is sought and only as permitted by the provisions of the Mortgage Notes Indenture.

 

6.25         No Conflicts.  In the event that any of the provisions contained herein conflict with the Security Agreement, then the provisions contained in the Security Agreement shall prevail.
