With respect to each Mortgage Loan in each Mortgage Loan Package, from and after the related Transfer Date, the Servicer, as an independent contractor, shall service and administer the Mortgage Loans pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, under the Servicer’s name on a scheduled/scheduled basis, and shall have full power and authority to do any and all things in connection with such servicing and administration which the Servicer may deem necessary or desirable, consistent with the terms of this Agreement and with Accepted Servicing Practices. The Servicer shall acknowledge by email to the Owner its receipt of each Mortgage Loan Schedule and the Servicer’s assumption of the servicing responsibilities with respect to the related Mortgage Loan Package.
 
The Servicer may not waive, modify or vary any term of any Mortgage Loan or consent to the postponement of strict compliance with any such term or in any manner grant indulgence to any Mortgagor without the prior written consent of the Owner. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer shall continue, and is hereby authorized and empowered, to execute and deliver on behalf of itself and the Owner, all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release, discharge and all other comparable instruments, with respect to the Mortgage Loans and with respect to the Mortgaged Properties. If reasonably required by the Servicer, the Owner shall furnish the Servicer with any powers of attorney and other documents necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties under this Agreement.
 
In servicing and administering the Mortgage Loans, the Servicer shall employ procedures (including collection procedures) and exercise the same care that it customarily employs and exercises in servicing and administering mortgage loans for its own account, giving due consideration to Accepted Servicing Practices where such practices do not conflict with the requirements of this Agreement, the Mortgage Loan Documents or applicable law, and the Owner’s reliance on the Servicer.
 
-14-

 
The Servicer shall keep at its servicing office books and records in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Servicer shall note transfers of Mortgage Loans. No transfer of a Mortgage Loan may be made unless such transfer is in compliance with the terms hereof. For the purposes of this Agreement, Servicer shall be under no obligation to deal with any Person with respect to this Agreement or the Mortgage Loans unless the Servicer has been notified of such transfers as provided in this Section 2.01. The Owner may sell and transfer, in whole or in part, the Mortgage Loans. Upon notice thereof, Servicer shall mark its books and records to reflect the ownership of the Mortgage Loans by such assignee, and the previous Owner shall be released from its obligations hereunder. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Owner and Servicer and their permitted successors, assignees and designees.
 
The Servicer shall notify MERS of the ownership interest of Owner in each MOM Loan through the MORNET system or MIDANET system, as applicable, or any other comparable system acceptable to MERS.

In the event that any payment due under any Mortgage Loan and not postponed pursuant to Section 2.01 is not paid when the same becomes due and payable, or in the event the Mortgagor fails to perform any other covenant or obligation under the Mortgage Loan and such failure continues beyond any applicable grace period, the Servicer shall take such action as (1) the Servicer would take under similar circumstances with respect to a similar mortgage loan held for its own account for investment, (2) shall be consistent with Accepted Servicing Practices, or (3) the Servicer shall determine prudently to be in the best interest of Owner.
 
Section 2.03 Collection of Mortgage Loan Payments.

Section 2.04 Establishment of and Deposits to Custodial Account. The Servicer shall segregate and hold all funds collected and received pursuant to the Mortgage Loans separate and apart from any of its own funds and general assets and shall establish and maintain one or more Custodial Accounts, in the form of time deposit or demand accounts, titled “Avelo Mortgage, L.L.C., in trust for [insert Owner’s name], Residential Fixed and Adjustable Rate Mortgage Loans, and various Mortgagors.” The Custodial Account shall be established with a Qualified Depository acceptable to the Owner.

Any funds deposited in the Custodial Account shall at all times be fully insured to the full extent permitted by the FDIC and as otherwise acceptable to the Rating Agencies. Funds deposited in the Custodial Account may be drawn on by the Servicer in accordance with Section 2.05. The creation of any Custodial Account shall be evidenced by a certification in the form of Exhibit 2 hereto, in the case of an account established with the Servicer, or by a letter agreement in the form of Exhibit 3 hereto, in the case of an account held by a depository other than the Servicer.

To the extent that a Mortgage does not provide for Escrow Payments, the Servicer shall determine that any such payments are made by the Mortgagor at the time they first become due. The Servicer shall monitor the Mortgagor’s payment of such bills and shall promptly notify any Mortgagor in breach of timely payments of such bills to remedy such breach. If after such notification, such Mortgagor continues to fail to remedy the breach, the Servicer shall arrange for the purchase of insurance coverage which satisfied the requirements of Section 2.10 of this Agreement on behalf of such Mortgagor. The Servicer shall advance property taxes to protect each Mortgaged Property as may be provided for in the related Mortgage Loan Documents.
 
-19-

The Servicer shall bear any expenses, losses or damages sustained by the Owner because the Custodial Account and/or the Escrow Account are not demand deposit accounts.
 
Amounts on deposit in the Custodial Account and the Escrow Account may at the option of the Servicer be invested in Eligible Investments; provided that in the event that amounts on deposit in the Custodial Account or the Escrow Account exceed the amount fully insured by the FDIC (the “Insured Amount”) the Servicer shall be obligated to invest the excess amount over the Insured Amount in Eligible Investments on the same Business Day as such excess amount becomes present in the Custodial Account or the Escrow Account. Any such Eligible Investment shall mature no later than the Determination Date next following the date of such Eligible Investment, provided, however, that if such Eligible Investment is an obligation of a Qualified Depository (other than the Servicer) that maintains the Custodial Account or the Escrow Account, then such Eligible Investment may mature on such Remittance Date. Any such Eligible Investment shall be made in the name of the Servicer in trust for the benefit of the Owner. All income on or gain realized from any such Eligible Investment shall be for the benefit of the Servicer and may be withdrawn at any time by the Servicer. Any losses incurred in respect of any such investment shall be deposited in the Custodial Account or the Escrow Account, by the Servicer out of its own funds immediately as realized.
 
Section 2.10 Maintenance of Hazard Insurance. The Servicer shall cause to be maintained for each First Lien Loan, hazard insurance such that all buildings upon the Mortgaged Property are insured by a generally acceptable insurer which satisfies the hazard insurer ratings requirements of each of the Rating Agencies, against loss by fire, hazards of extended coverage and such other hazards as are customary in the area where the Mortgaged Property is located, in an amount which is at least equal to the lesser of (i) the maximum insurable value of the improvements securing such First Lien Loan and (ii) the greater of (a) the outstanding principal balance of the First Lien Loan and (b) an amount such that the proceeds thereof shall be sufficient to prevent the Mortgagor or the loss payee from becoming a co-insurer.
 
If upon origination of the First Lien Loan, the related Mortgaged Property was located in an area identified in the Federal Register by the Flood Emergency Management Agency as having special flood hazards (and such flood insurance has been made available) a flood insurance policy meeting the requirements of the current guidelines of the Federal Insurance Administration is in effect with a generally acceptable insurance carrier which satisfies the flood insurer ratings requirements of each of the Rating Agencies, in an amount representing coverage equal to the lesser of (i) the minimum amount required, under the terms of coverage, to compensate for any damage or loss on a replacement cost basis (or the unpaid balance of the mortgage if replacement cost coverage is not available for the type of building insured) and (ii) the maximum amount of insurance which is available under the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended. If at any time during the term of the First Lien Loan, the Servicer determines in accordance with applicable law and pursuant to the Fannie Mae Guides that a Mortgaged Property is located in a special flood hazard area and is not covered by flood insurance or is covered in an amount less than the amount required by the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended, the Servicer shall notify the related Mortgagor that the Mortgagor must obtain such flood insurance coverage, and if said Mortgagor fails to obtain the required flood insurance coverage within forty-five (45) days after such notification, the Servicer shall immediately force place the required flood insurance on the Mortgagor’s behalf.

If a Mortgage is secured by a unit in a condominium project, the Servicer shall verify that the coverage required of the owner’s association, including hazard, flood, liability, and fidelity coverage, is being maintained in accordance with then current Fannie Mae requirements, and secure from the owner’s association its agreement to notify the Servicer promptly of any change in the insurance coverage or of any condemnation or casualty loss that may have a material effect on the value of the Mortgaged Property as security.
 
The Servicer shall cause to be maintained on each Mortgaged Property earthquake or such other or additional insurance as may be required pursuant to such applicable laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force and as shall require such additional insurance, or pursuant to the requirements of any private mortgage guaranty insurer, or as may be required to conform with Accepted Servicing Practices, in any instance, only to the extent permitted by applicable laws or regulations and subject to the availability of such additional insurance in the marketplace.
 
In the event that the Owner or the Servicer shall determine that the Mortgaged Property should be insured against loss or damage by hazards and risks not covered by the insurance required to be maintained by the Mortgagor pursuant to the terms of the Mortgage, the Servicer shall communicate and consult with the Mortgagor with respect to the need for such insurance and bring to the Mortgagor’s attention the desirability of protection of the Mortgaged Property.
 
All policies required hereunder shall name the Servicer as loss payee and shall be endorsed with standard or New York mortgagee clauses, without contribution, which shall provide for at least 30 days prior written notice of any cancellation, reduction in amount or material change in coverage.
 
The Servicer shall not interfere with the Mortgagor’s freedom of choice in selecting either his insurance carrier or agent, provided, however, that the Servicer shall not accept any such insurance policies from insurance companies unless such companies satisfy the insurer ratings requirements of each of the Rating Agencies and are licensed to do business in the jurisdiction in which the Mortgaged Property is located. The Servicer shall determine that such policies provide sufficient risk coverage and amounts, that they insure the property owner, and that they properly describe the property address. The Servicer shall ensure that appropriate insurance policies are in place in the required coverages.
 
Pursuant to Section 2.04, any amounts collected by the Servicer under any such policies (other than amounts to be deposited in the Escrow Account and applied to the restoration or repair of the related Mortgaged Property, or property acquired in liquidation of the First Lien Loan, or to be released to the Mortgagor, in accordance with the Servicer’s normal servicing procedures as specified in Section 2.13) shall be deposited in the Custodial Account subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 2.05.
 
-21-

 
With respect to each Second Lien Loan, the Servicer shall obtain and maintain the blanket hazard insurance policy in an amount equal to the unpaid principal balance of such Second Lien Loan. Any amounts collected by the Servicer under any such policy relating to a Second Lien Loan shall be deposited in the Custodial Account subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 2.05. Such policy may contain a standard deductible clause. Upon request of the Owner, the Servicer shall cause to be delivered to the Owner a certified true copy of such policy and a statement from the insurer thereunder that such policy shall in no event be terminated or materially modified without 30 days’ prior written notice to the Owner.

ARTICLE IV
 
GENERAL SERVICING PROCEDURES
 
Section 4.01 Transfers of Mortgaged Property. The Servicer shall use its best efforts to enforce any “due-on-sale” provision contained in any Mortgage or Mortgage Note and to deny assumption by the person to whom the Mortgaged Property has been or is about to be sold whether by absolute conveyance or by contract of sale, and whether or not the Mortgagor remains liable on the Mortgage and the Mortgage Note. When the Mortgaged Property has been conveyed by the Mortgagor, the Servicer shall, to the extent it has knowledge of such conveyance, exercise its rights to accelerate the maturity of such Mortgage Loan under the “due-on-sale” clause applicable thereto.
 
If the Servicer reasonably believes it is unable under applicable law to enforce such “due-on-sale” clause, the Servicer shall enter into (i) an assumption and modification agreement with the person to whom such property has been conveyed, pursuant to which such person becomes liable under the Mortgage Note and the original Mortgagor remains liable thereon or (ii) in the event the Servicer is unable under applicable law to require that the original Mortgagor remain liable under the Mortgage Note and the Servicer has the prior consent of the primary mortgage guaranty insurer, a substitution of liability agreement with the purchaser of the Mortgaged Property pursuant to which the original Mortgagor is released from liability and the purchaser of the Mortgaged Property is substituted as Mortgagor and becomes liable under the Mortgage Note. The Servicer shall be entitled to retain as additional servicing compensation any assumption fees collected by the Servicer in connection with a Mortgagor entering into an assumption agreement. In connection with any such assumption, neither the Mortgage Interest Rate borne by the related Mortgage Note, the term of the Mortgage Loan nor the outstanding principal amount of the Mortgage Loan shall be changed.
 
To the extent that any Mortgage Loan is assumable, the Servicer shall inquire diligently into the creditworthiness of the proposed transferee, and shall use the underwriting criteria for approving the credit of the proposed transferee which are used by the Servicers and their affiliates with respect to underwriting mortgage loans of the same type as the Mortgage Loans. If the credit of the proposed transferee does not meet such underwriting criteria, the Servicer diligently shall, to the extent permitted by the Mortgage or the Mortgage Note and by applicable law, accelerate the maturity of the Mortgage Loan.
 
Section 4.02 Satisfaction of Mortgages and Release of Mortgage Files. Upon the payment in full of any Mortgage Loan, or the receipt by the Servicer of a notification that payment in full will be escrowed in a manner customary for such purposes, the Servicer shall notify the Owner in the monthly remittance advice as provided in Section 3.02, and may request the release of any Mortgage Loan Documents from the Owner in accordance with this Section 4.02 hereof.
 
-28-

 
If the Servicer satisfies or releases a Mortgage without first having obtained payment in full of the indebtedness secured by the Mortgage (or such lesser amount in connection with a discounted payoff accepted by the Servicer with respect to a defaulted Mortgage Loan) or should the Servicer otherwise prejudice any rights the Owner may have under the mortgage instruments, if Servicer is unable to reasonably demonstrate that it will be able to cause the amount of the unpaid indebtedness to be reinstated and secured under the related Mortgage, or if the Mortgagor becomes thirty (30) or more days delinquent following such erroneous release, regardless of Servicer’s ability to obtain reinstatement, upon the Servicer’s receiving knowledge of such an event or upon written demand of the Owner, whichever is earlier, the Servicer shall deposit the amount of any shortfall thereof in the Custodial Account within 2 Business Days of receipt of such demand by the Owner; provided, however, that with respect to any such Mortgage Loan subject to judicial action, the Servicer’s obligations under this sentence shall be limited to giving the Owner notice of such judicial action and using good faith efforts to reinstate and secure the amount of the unpaid indebtedness under the related Mortgage. The Servicer shall maintain the Fidelity Bond and Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy as provided for in Section 2.11 insuring the Servicer against any loss it may sustain with respect to any Mortgage Loan not satisfied in accordance with the procedures set forth herein.
 
Section 4.03 Servicing Compensation. As consideration for servicing the Mortgage Loans pursuant to this Agreement, the Servicer shall be entitled to retain the applicable Servicing Fee from payments on the Mortgage Loans or to withdraw the applicable Servicing Fee with respect to each Mortgage Loan from the Custodial Account pursuant to Section 2.05 hereof. The obligation of the Owner to pay, and the Servicer’s right to withdraw, the Servicing Fee is limited to, and the Servicing Fee is payable solely from, the interest portion (including recoveries with respect to interest from Liquidation Proceeds, to the extent permitted by Section 2.05) of such Monthly Payment collected by the Servicer, or as otherwise provided under Section 2.05. The Servicer shall be entitled to all accrued and unpaid Servicing Fees upon the termination of its servicing of the related Mortgage Loans.
 
Additional servicing compensation in the form of Ancillary Income shall be retained by the Servicer to the extent not required to be deposited in the Custodial Account. The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its servicing activities hereunder and shall not be entitled to reimbursement thereof except as specifically provided for herein.
 
Section 4.04 Right to Examine Servicer Records.

Section 8.03 Limitation on Resignation and Assignment by Servicer.
 
The Owner has entered into this Agreement with the Servicer and subsequent purchasers will purchase the Mortgage Loans in reliance upon the independent status of the Servicer, and the representations as to the adequacy of its servicing facilities, plant, personnel, records and procedures, its integrity, reputation and financial standing, and the continuance thereof. Therefore, the Servicer shall not assign this Agreement or the servicing hereunder or delegate its rights or duties hereunder or any portion hereof or sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its property or assets without the prior written consent of the Owner, which consent shall be granted or withheld in the reasonable discretion of the Owner.
 
The Servicer may, without the consent of the Owner, retain third party contractors to perform certain servicing and loan administration functions, including without limitation, hazard insurance administration, tax payment and administration, flood certification and administration, collection services and similar functions; provided, that the retention of such contractors by Servicer shall not limit the obligation of the Servicer to service the Mortgage Loans pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
 
The Servicer shall not resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it except by mutual consent of the Servicer and the Owner or upon the determination that its duties hereunder are no longer permissible under applicable law and such incapacity cannot be cured by the Servicer. Any such determination permitting the resignation of the Servicer shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect delivered to the Owner which Opinion of Counsel shall be in form and substance acceptable to the Owner. No such resignation shall become effective until a successor shall have assumed the Servicer’s responsibilities and obligations hereunder in the manner provided in Section 6.02.
 
Without in any way limiting the generality of this Section 8.03, in the event that the Servicer either shall assign this Agreement or the servicing responsibilities hereunder or delegate its duties hereunder or any portion thereof or sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its property or assets without the prior written consent of the Owner, then the Owner shall have the right to terminate this Agreement upon notice given as set forth in Section 6.02(a), without any payment of any penalty or damages and without any liability whatsoever to the Servicer or any third party.
 
-34-

 
Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, the Servicer may at any time upon notice to the Owner, or trustee in the case of a Reconstitution, and without the consent of any party, solely in connection with a financing or other facility (any such arrangement, an “Advance Facility”), assign as collateral security or pledge to another Person all its rights, title and interest under this Agreement to its rights to reimbursement of Servicing Advances.
 
Section 8.04 Assignment by Owner.
 
Subject to the limitations and requirements set forth in this Agreement, the Owner shall have the right, to assign, in whole or in part, its interest under this Agreement with respect to some or all of the Mortgage Loans, and designate any person to exercise any rights of the Owner hereunder.
 
Section 8.05 Merger or Consolidation of the Servicer.
 
The Servicer will keep in full effect its existence, rights and franchises as a limited liability company under the laws of the state of its filing except as permitted herein, and will obtain and preserve its qualification to do business as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction in which such qualification is or shall be necessary to protect the validity and enforceability of this Agreement, or any of the Mortgage Loans and to perform its duties under this Agreement. Any Person into which the Servicer may be merged or consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation (including by means of the sale of all or substantially all of the Servicer’s assets to such Person) to which the Servicer shall be a party, or any Person succeeding to the business of the Servicer (whether or not related to loan servicing), shall be the successor of the Servicer hereunder, without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not, without the prior written approval of the Owner, be a party to any such merger, conversion or consolidation, or sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its business or assets if, (i) as a result of such merger, conversion or consolidation, sale or other disposition, an Event of Default under Section 11.01 hereof would exist with respect to such successor Servicer or (ii) such successor has (a) a residential primary servicer rating for servicing of mortgage loans issued by Standard & Poor’s Rating Services, a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., Fitch, Inc. or Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. below “average” or its equivalent or (b) a net worth of less than $25,000,000.
 
The Servicer shall give 90 days’ prior written notice to the Owner to the extent permitted by applicable law of any such merger, conversion, consolidation, sale or other disposition to which the Servicer proposes to be a party. In the event that any successor entity to the Servicer fails to meet the requirements set forth in this Section 8.05 and the Owner does not consent to such successor becoming the servicer hereunder, then the Servicer shall have the right to terminate this Agreement with respect to the Servicer and any such successor upon notice given as set forth in Section 6.01, without any payment of any termination penalty or termination damages and without any additional liability whatsoever to the Servicer or any third party, except for liabilities accrued under this Agreement prior to the date of termination and for liabilities resulting from Owner’s obligations hereunder, including the payment of the Servicing Fee pursuant to Section 4.03.

ARTICLE XII
 
COMPLIANCE WITH REGULATION AB
 
Section 12.01 Intent of the Parties; Reasonableness. The Owner and the Servicer acknowledge and agree that the purpose of Article XII of this Agreement is to facilitate compliance by the Owner and any Depositor with the provisions of Regulation AB and related rules and regulations of the Commission. Although Regulation AB is applicable by its terms only to offerings of asset-backed securities that are registered under the Securities Act, the Servicer acknowledges that investors in privately offered securities may require that the Owner or any Depositor provide comparable disclosure in unregistered offerings. References in this Agreement to compliance with Regulation AB include provision of comparable disclosure in private offerings.
 
Neither the Owner nor any Depositor shall exercise its right to request delivery of information or other performance under these provisions other than in good faith, or for purposes other than compliance with the Securities Act, the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder (or the provision in a private offering of disclosure comparable to that required under the Securities Act). The Servicer acknowledges that interpretations of the requirements of Regulation AB may change over time, whether due to interpretive guidance provided by the Commission or its staff, consensus among participants in the asset-backed securities markets, advice of counsel, or otherwise, and agrees to comply with requests made by the Owner or any Depositor in good faith for delivery of information under these provisions on the basis of evolving interpretations of Regulation AB. In connection with any Securitization Transaction, the Servicer shall cooperate fully with the Owner to deliver to the Owner (including any of its assignees or designees) and any Depositor, any and all statements, reports, certifications, records and any other information necessary in the good faith determination of the Owner or any Depositor to permit the Owner or such Depositor to comply with the provisions of Regulation AB, together with such disclosures relating to the Servicer, any Subservicer and the Mortgage Loans, or the servicing of the Mortgage Loans, reasonably believed by the Owner or any Depositor to be necessary in order to effect such compliance.
 
-44-

 
The Owner (including any of its assignees or designees) shall cooperate with the Servicer by providing timely notice of requests for information under these provisions and by reasonably limiting such requests to information required, in the Owner’s reasonable judgment, to comply with Regulation AB.
 
Section 12.02 Additional Representations and Warranties of the Servicer.
 
(a) The Servicer shall be deemed to represent to the Owner and to any Depositor, as of the date on which information is first provided to the Owner or any Depositor under Section 12.03 that, except as disclosed in writing to the Owner or such Depositor prior to such date: (i) the Servicer is not aware and has not received notice that any default, early amortization or other performance triggering event has occurred as to any other securitization due to any act or failure to act of the Servicer; (ii) the Servicer has not been terminated as servicer in a residential mortgage loan securitization, either due to a servicing default or to application of a servicing performance test or trigger; (iii) no material noncompliance with the applicable servicing criteria with respect to other securitizations of residential mortgage loans involving the Servicer as servicer has been disclosed or reported by the Servicer; (iv) no material changes to the Servicer’s policies or procedures with respect to the servicing function it will perform under this Agreement and any Reconstitution Agreement for mortgage loans of a type similar to the Mortgage Loans have occurred during the three-year period immediately preceding the related Securitization Transaction; (v) there are no aspects of the Servicer’s financial condition that could have a material adverse effect on the performance by the Servicer of its servicing obligations under this Agreement or any Reconstitution Agreement; (vi) there are no material legal or governmental proceedings pending (or known to be contemplated) against the Servicer or any Subservicer; and (vii) there are no affiliations, relationships or transactions relating to the Servicer or any Subservicer with respect to any Securitization Transaction and any party thereto identified by the related Depositor of a type described in Item 1119 of Regulation AB.
 
(b) If so requested by the Owner or any Depositor on any date following the date on which information is first provided to the Owner or any Depositor under Section 12.03, the Servicer shall, within five Business Days following such request, confirm in writing the accuracy of the representations and warranties set forth in paragraph (a) of this Section or, if any such representation and warranty is not accurate as of the date of such request, provide reasonably adequate disclosure of the pertinent facts, in writing, to the requesting party.
 
Section 12.03 Information to Be Provided by the Servicer. In connection with any Securitization Transaction the Servicer shall (i) within five Business Days following request by the Owner or any Depositor, provide to the Owner and such Depositor (or cause each Subservicer to provide), in writing and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Owner and such Depositor, the information and materials specified in paragraphs (a), (c) and (f) of this Section, and (ii) as promptly as practicable following notice to or discovery by the Servicer, provide to the Owner and any Depositor (in writing and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Owner and such Depositor) the information specified in paragraph (d) of this Section.
