Ladies and Gentlemen:

Reference is hereby made to that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of June 27, 2013 (as amended, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”), among HOME LOAN SERVICING SOLUTIONS, LTD., a Cayman Islands exempted company (the “Borrower”), certain subsidiaries of the Borrower, as guarantors, each lender from time to time party thereto (collectively, the “Lenders” and individually, a “Lender”), and JPMORGAN CHASE BANK, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent (in such capacities, the “Administrative Agent”) for the Lenders. Capitalized terms used herein without definition shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Credit Agreement.

As you are aware, (a) pursuant to Section 5.01(c) of the Credit Agreement, the Borrower is required to deliver to the Administrative Agent no later than five (5) days after the date on which the Borrower is required, under the Exchange Act, to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K with the SEC (the “Annual Financial Delivery Deadline”), (i) the Consolidated balance sheet of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries at the end of such Fiscal Year and the related Consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries for such Fiscal Year and (ii) with respect to such Consolidated financial statements a report thereon of Deloitte & Touche LLP or other independent certified public accountants of recognized national standing selected by the Borrower, which report and/or the accompanying financial statements shall be unqualified as to going concern (other than as a result of a pending maturity of the Term Loans) and scope of audit, in each case, as more fully set forth in Section 5.01(c) of the Credit Agreement (the items required to be delivered thereunder, the “Audited Annual Financial Statements”) and (b) pursuant to Section 8.01(e)(ii) of the Credit Agreement, it is an Event of Default if a breach or default by any Loan Party occurs with respect to any material term (other than with respect to the payment of principal or interest or any other amount as set forth in Section 8.01(e)(i)) of any Indebtedness in an individual or aggregate amount of $20,000,000 or more beyond the grace period, if any, provided therefor, if the effect of such breach or default is to cause, or to permit the holders of that Indebtedness (or a trustee on behalf of such holder or holders), to cause, that Indebtedness to become declared due and payable (or redeemable) prior to its stated maturity

or the obligation of any underlying obligation, as the case may be, as more fully set forth in Section 8.01(e)(ii) of the Credit Agreement (such breach or default set forth in Section 8.01(e)(ii) of the Credit Agreement, the “Cross-Default”).

As of and following the date hereof, the Borrower has requested that (a) the Annual Financial Delivery Deadline for Fiscal Year 2014 be extended 25 days to April 10, 2015, (b) any Cross-Default with respect to the HSART Indenture (as defined below) (an “HSART Cross-Default”) shall not constitute an Event of Default until the earlier of (x) such time that such HSART Cross-Default has occurred and been continuing for five (5) Business Days without waiver, consent or other cure under the HSART Indenture or any refinancing or replacement thereof permitted under the Credit Agreement or (y) any obligations under the HSART Indenture have become due (automatically or otherwise) prior to its stated maturity or otherwise have been accelerated (subject to such period ceasing to apply under the circumstances set forth below) and (c) the Required Lenders consent to permit the Loan Parties to make certain amendments to the Ocwen Subservicing Agreement after the date hereof.

Notwithstanding the requirements of Sections 5.01(c) and 8.01(e)(ii) of the Credit Agreement, the Borrower has requested that Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders consent to, and subject to the terms hereof the Administrative Agent and Required Lenders hereby consent to, (a) the extension of the Annual Financial Delivery Deadline for Fiscal Year 2014 by 25 days to April 10, 2015, (b) the amendment of Section 6.14 of the Credit Agreement to add at the end of such Section: “provided that any amendment, restatement, supplement or other modification to, or waiver of, the Ocwen Subservicing Agreement after March 20, 2015 solely for the purpose of curing or waiving a Ratings Termination Event or waiving or removing the right to terminate such agreement on the basis thereof shall be deemed to not have a material adverse impact on the Lenders”; and (c) the amendment of Section 8.01(e)(ii) of the Credit Agreement to add at the end of such Section: “provided that any Cross-Default with respect with respect to the HSART Indenture (as defined below) (an “HSART Cross-Default”) shall not constitute an Event of Default under this Section 8.01(e)(ii) until the earlier of (x) such time that such HSART Cross-Default has occurred and been continuing (without waiver, consent or other cure under the HSART Indenture or any refinancing or replacement thereof permitted under the Credit Agreement) for five (5) Business Days or (y) any obligations under the HSART Indenture have become due (automatically or otherwise) prior to its stated maturity or otherwise have been accelerated (this proviso being referred to as the “HSART Cure Period”); provided further, that the HSART Cure Period shall cease to apply on the date that is the earlier of two weeks before the date scheduled for the vote by the Borrower’s shareholders to approve the transactions contemplated under the APM and June 30, 2015 if on such date, each Ratings Termination Event existing on March 20, 2015 under any Sale Supplement has not been cured, is occurring or is effective by such date or any other Ratings Termination Event has occurred and is continuing.
