3.10 Survival.  All representations and warranties made by Guarantor herein shall survive the execution hereof.
 
ARTICLE IV 
 
SUBORDINATION OF CERTAIN INDEBTEDNESS
 
4.1 Subordination of All Guarantor Claims.  As used herein, the term "Guarantor Claims" shall mean all debts and liabilities of Borrower to Guarantor, whether such debts and liabilities now exist or are hereafter incurred or arise, or whether the obligations of Borrower thereon be direct, contingent, primary, secondary, several, joint and several, or otherwise, and irrespective of whether such debts or liabilities are evidenced by note, contract, open account, or otherwise, and irrespective of the Person or Persons in whose favor such debts or liabilities may, at their inception, have been, or may hereafter be created, or the manner in which they have been or may hereafter be acquired by Guarantor.  Guarantor Claims shall include, without limitation, all rights and claims of Guarantor against Borrower (arising as a result of subrogation or otherwise) as a result of Guarantor's payment and performance of all or a portion of the Guaranteed Obligations.  So long as any portion of the Indebtedness, the Obligations or the Guaranteed Obligations remains outstanding, Guarantor shall not receive or collect, directly or indirectly, from Borrower or any other party any amount upon the Guarantor Claims.
 
4.2 Claims in Bankruptcy.  In the event of any receivership, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, debtor's relief, or other insolvency proceeding involving Guarantor as debtor, Lender shall have the right to prove its claim in any such proceeding so as to establish its rights hereunder and receive directly from the receiver, trustee or other court custodian dividends and payments which would otherwise be payable upon Guarantor Claims.  Guarantor hereby assigns such dividends and payments to Lender but only to the extent that the indebtedness has not been paid in full.  Should Lender receive, for application against the Guaranteed Obligations, any such dividend or payment which is otherwise payable to Guarantor and which, as between Borrower and Guarantor, shall constitute a credit against the Guarantor Claims, then upon full payment and performance to Lender of the Guaranteed Obligations, Guarantor shall become subrogated to the rights of Lender to the extent that such payments to Lender on Guarantor Claims have contributed toward the liquidation of the Guaranteed Obligations, and such subrogation shall be with respect to that proportion of the Guaranteed Obligations which would have been unpaid if Lender had not received dividends or payments upon Guarantor Claims.
 
4.3 Payments Held in Trust.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Guaranty, in the event that Guarantor should receive any funds, payment, claim or distribution which is prohibited by this Guaranty, Guarantor agrees to hold in trust for Lender an amount equal to the amount of all funds, payments, claims and distributions so received, and agrees that it shall have absolutely no dominion over the amount of such funds, payments, claims or distributions so received except to pay them promptly to Lender, and Guarantor covenants promptly to pay the same to Lender.
 
 
GUARANTY AGREEMENT (CARVEOUT) – Page 14
641938; Miami-Dade County, Florida

 
4.4 Liens Subordinate.  Guarantor agrees that any liens, security interests, judgment liens, charges or other encumbrances upon Borrower's assets securing payment of Guarantor Claims shall be and remain inferior and subordinate to any liens, security interests, judgment liens, charges or other encumbrances upon Borrower's assets securing payment and performance of the Guaranteed Obligations, regardless of whether such encumbrances in favor of Guarantor or Lender presently exist or are hereafter created or attach.  Without the prior written consent of Lender, Guarantor shall not (i) create any Lien encumbering the Mortgaged Property or any interest therein, (ii) exercise or enforce any creditor's rights it may have against Borrower, or (iii) foreclose, repossess, sequester or otherwise take steps or institute any action or proceedings (judicial or otherwise, including, without limitation, the commencement of, or joinder in, any liquidation, bankruptcy, rearrangement, debtor's relief or insolvency proceeding) to enforce any liens, mortgages, deeds of trust, security interests, collateral rights, judgments or other encumbrances on assets of Borrower held by Guarantor.  The foregoing shall in no manner vitiate or amend, nor be deemed to vitiate or amend, any prohibition in the Loan Documents against Borrower granting Liens in any of its assets to any Person other than Lender or Guarantor transferring any of its assets to any Person other than Lender.
 
4.5 No Limitations.  Nothing contained in this Guaranty shall affect or limit the ability of Lender to enforce any of Lender's rights or remedies with respect to the Mortgaged Property.  Nothing contained in this Guaranty shall affect or limit the rights of Lender to proceed against any other Person, including Borrower, or any other party with respect to the enforcement of any guarantees of payment, guarantees of performance and completion, hazardous materials indemnifications or agreements or other similar rights, including, without limitation, those indemnities contained in the Environmental Indemnity.

5.4 Invalid Provisions.  If any provision of this Guaranty is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future laws effective during the term of this Guaranty, such provision shall be fully severable and this Guaranty shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part of this Guaranty, and the remaining provisions of this Guaranty shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance from this Guaranty, unless such continued effectiveness of this Guaranty, as modified, would be contrary to the basic understandings and intentions of the parties as expressed herein.
