W I T N E S S E T H: In consideration of the mutual agreements herein contained, the parties hereto agree as follows: PRELIMINARY STATEMENT The Securities Administrator, on behalf of the Trustee, shall elect that four segregated asset pools within the Trust Fund (exclusive of (i) the Prepayment Premiums, (ii) the Swap Assets, (iii) the Excess Reserve Fund Account, and (iv) the right of the Offered Certificates to receive Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts including, but without duplication, Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and the obligation to pay Class IO Shortfalls) be treated for federal income tax purposes as comprising four REMICs (each, a "Trust REMIC" or, in the alternative, Pooling-Tier REMIC-1, Pooling-Tier REMIC-2, the Lower-Tier REMIC and the Upper-Tier REMIC, respectively). The Class X Interest, Class IO Interest and each Class of Offered Certificates (other than the right of each Class of Offered Certificates to receive Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts including, but without duplication, Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and the obligation to pay Class IO Shortfalls) represents ownership of a regular interest in a REMIC for purposes of the REMIC Provisions. The Class R Certificates represent ownership of the sole class of residual interest in each Trust REMIC for purposes of the REMIC Provisions. The Startup Day for each Trust REMIC described herein is the Closing Date. The latest possible maturity date for each regular interest is the latest date referenced in Section 2.05. The Upper-Tier REMIC shall hold as assets the several classes of uncertificated Lower-Tier Regular Interests, set out below. The Lower-Tier REMIC shall hold as assets the several classes of uncertificated Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests. Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 shall hold as assets the several classes of uncertificated Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests. Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 shall hold as assets the assets of the Trust Fund (exclusive of (i) the Prepayment Premiums, (ii) the Swap Assets, (iii) the Excess Reserve Fund Account, and (iv) the right of the Offered Certificates to receive Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts including, but without duplication, Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and the obligation to pay Class IO Shortfalls). For federal income tax purposes, each Class of Offered Certificates represents a beneficial ownership of a regular interest in the Upper-Tier REMIC, the right to receive Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts (including, but without duplication, Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts), and the obligation to pay Class IO Shortfalls; the Class X Certificates represent beneficial ownership of the Class X Interest, the Class IO Interest, the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, the Swap Account, the Excess Reserve Fund Account and the right to receive Class IO Shortfalls, subject to the obligation to pay Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts (including, but without duplication, Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts); and the Class P Certificates represent beneficial ownership of the Prepayment Premiums, which portions of the Trust Fund shall be treated as a grantor trust. Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 shall issue the following interests in Pooling-Tier REMIC-1, and each such interest, other than the Class PT1-R Interest is hereby designated as a regular interest in the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1. Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interests with an "I" in their designation shall relate to Loan Group I and Pooling Tier REMIC-1 Interests with a "II" in their designation shall relate to Loan Group II. Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 shall also issue the Class PT1-R Interest, which is hereby designated as the sole class of residual interest in Pooling-Tier REMIC-1. The Class PT1-R Interest shall be represented by the Class R Certificates, shall not have a principal balance and shall have no interest rate.

- ---------------------- (1) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rate") equal to the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Loan Group I WAC Rate. (2) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rate") equal to the product of (i) 2 and (ii) the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Loan Group I WAC Rate, subject to a maximum rate of 10.30%. (3) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rate") equal to the excess, if any, of (A) the product of (i) 2 and (ii) the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Loan Group I WAC Rate over (B) 10.30%. (4) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rate") equal to the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Loan Group II WAC Rate. (5) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rate") equal to the product of (i) 2 and (ii) the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Loan Group II WAC Rate, subject to a maximum rate of 10.30%. (6) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rate") equal to the excess, if any, of (A) the product of (i) 2 and (ii) the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Loan Group II WAC Rate over (B) 10.30%. (7) The Class PT1-R Interest shall not have a principal balance and shall not bear interest. On each Distribution Date, the Securities Administrator shall first pay from the Trust Fund and charge as an expense of Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 all expenses of the Trust for such Distribution Date. Such expense, other than Servicing Fees and Custodian Fees, shall be allocated in the same manner as Realized Losses. On each Distribution Date, the interest distributable in respect of the Mortgage Loans from the related Loan Group for such Distribution Date shall be deemed to be distributed to the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests at the rates shown above. On each Distribution Date, Realized Losses, Subsequent Recoveries and payments of principal in respect of the Group I Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to the outstanding Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest relating to the Group I Mortgage Loans with the lowest numerical denomination until the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Principal Amount of such interest is reduced to zero, provided that, with respect to Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests relating to Loan Group I with the same numerical denomination, such Realized Losses, Subsequent Recoveries and payments of principal shall be allocated pro rata between such Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests, until the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Principal Amount of such interests is reduced to zero. On each Distribution Date, Realized Losses, Subsequent Recoveries and payments of principal in respect of the Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to the outstanding Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest relating to the Group II Mortgage Loans with the lowest numerical denomination until the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Principal Amount of such interest is reduced to zero, provided that, with respect to Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests relating to Loan Group II with the same numerical denomination, such Realized Losses, Subsequent Recoveries and payments of principal shall be allocated pro rata between such Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests, until the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Principal Amount of such interests is reduced to zero. Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 shall issue the following interests in Pooling-Tier REMIC-2, and each such interest, other than the Class PT2-R Interest, is hereby designated as a regular interest in Pooling-Tier REMIC-2. Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interests with an "I" in their designation shall relate to the Group I Mortgage Loans and Pooling Tier REMIC-2 Interests with a "II" in their designation shall relate to the Group II Mortgage Loans. The Class PT2-R Interest is hereby designated as the sole class of residual interest in Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 and shall be represented by the Class R Certificates.

- ---------------------------- (1) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rate") equal to the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Loan Group I WAC Rate. (2) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rate") equal to the weighted average of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rates on the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests relating to Loan Group I and having an "A" in their class designation, provided that, on each Distribution Date on which interest is distributable on the Corresponding Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO Interest, this Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to Swap LIBOR subject to a maximum rate equal to the weighted average of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rates on the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests relating to Loan Group I and having an "A" in their class designation. (3) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rate") equal to the weighted average of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rates on the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests relating to Loan Group I and having a "B" in their class designation. (4) Each Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO is an interest-only interest and does not have a principal balance but has a notional balance ("Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO Notional Balance") equal to the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Principal Amount of the Corresponding Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest. From the Closing Date through and including the Corresponding Actual Crossover Distribution Date, each Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO Interest shall be entitled to receive interest that accrues on the Corresponding Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest at a rate equal to the excess, if any, of (i) the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rate for the Corresponding Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interest over (ii) Swap LIBOR. After the Corresponding Actual Crossover Distribution Date, the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO Interest shall not accrue interest. (5) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rate") equal to the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Loan Group II WAC Rate. (6) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rate") equal to the weighted average of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rates on the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests relating to the Group II Mortgage Loans and having an "A" in their class designation, provided that, on each Distribution Date on which interest is distributable on the Corresponding Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO Interest, this Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to Swap LIBOR subject to a maximum rate equal to the weighted average of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rates on the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests relating to Loan Group II and having an "A" in their class designation. (7) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period), this Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a per annum rate (its "Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rate") equal to the weighted average of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Interest Rates on the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 Regular Interests relating to Loan Group II and having a "B" in their class designation. (8) The Class PT2-R Interest shall not have a principal balance and shall not bear interest. On each Distribution Date, the interest distributable in respect of the Mortgage Loans from the related Loan Group for such Distribution Date shall be distributed to the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests at the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rates shown above. On each Distribution Date, Realized Losses, Subsequent Recoveries and payments of principal in respect of the Group I Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to the then outstanding Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests (other than the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO Interests) relating to the Group I Mortgage Loans with the lowest numerical denomination until the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Principal Amount of such interest is reduced to zero, provided that, for Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests relating to the Group I Mortgage Loans with the same numerical denomination, such Realized Losses, Subsequent Recoveries and payments of principal shall be allocated pro rata between such Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests, until the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Principal Amount of such interests is reduced to zero. On each Distribution Date, Realized Losses, Subsequent Recoveries and payments of principal in respect of the Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to the then outstanding Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests (other than the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO Interests) relating to Loan Group II with the lowest numerical denomination until the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Principal Amount of such interest is reduced to zero, provided that, for Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests relating to the Group II Mortgage Loans with the same numerical denomination, such Realized Losses and payments of principal shall be allocated pro rata between such Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests, until the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Principal Amount of such interests is reduced to zero.

- ---------------------------- (1) The interest rate with respect to any Distribution Date for these interests is a per annum variable rate equal to the weighted average of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rates of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests (other than the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO Interests). (2) The interest rate with respect to any Distribution Date for the Class LT-Group I Interest is a per annum variable rate (expressed as a percentage rounded to eight decimal places) equal to the weighted average of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rates of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests (other than the Pooling Tier REMIC-2 IO Interests) relating to the Group I Mortgage Loans. (3) The interest rate with respect to any Distribution Date for the Class LT-Group II Interest is a per annum variable rate (expressed as a percentage rounded to eight decimal places) equal to the weighted average of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Interest Rates of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 Regular Interests (other than the Pooling Tier REMIC-2 IO Interests) relating to the Group II Mortgage Loans. (4) For all Distribution Dates, the Lower-Tier Principal Amount of these Lower-Tier Regular Interests shall be rounded to eight decimal places. (5) This Lower-Tier Regular Interest is an interest-only interest and does not have a Lower-Tier Principal Amount. On each Distribution Date, this Lower-Tier Regular Interest shall be entitled to receive all interest distributable on the Pooling-Tier REMIC-2 IO Interests. (6) The Class LT-R Interest is the sole class of residual interest in the Lower-Tier REMIC and it does not have a principal amount or an interest rate. Each Lower-Tier Regular Interest is hereby designated as a regular interest in the Lower-Tier REMIC. The Class LT-A-1, Class LT-A-2a, Class LT-A-2b, Class LT-A-2c, Class LT-A-2d, Class LT-M-1, Class LT-M-2, Class LT-M-3, Class LT-M-4, Class LT-M-5, Class LT-M-6, Class LT-B-1, Class LT-B-2 and Class LT-B-3 Interests are hereby designated the LT-Accretion Directed Classes (the "LT-Accretion Directed Classes"). On each Distribution Date, 50% of the increase in the Subordinated Amount shall be payable as a reduction of the Lower-Tier Principal Amount of the LT-Accretion Directed Classes (each such Class will be reduced by an amount equal to 50% of any increase in the Subordinated Amount that is attributable to a reduction in the Class Certificate Balance of its Corresponding Class) and shall be accrued and added to the Lower-Tier Principal Amount of the Class LT-Accrual Interest. On each Distribution Date, the increase in the Lower-Tier Principal Amount of the Class LT-Accrual Interest shall not exceed interest accruals for such Distribution Date for the Class LT-Accrual Interest. In the event that: (i) 50% of the increase in the Subordinated Amount exceeds (ii) interest accruals on the Class LT-Accrual Interest for such Distribution Date, the excess for such Distribution Date (accumulated with all such excesses for all prior Distribution Dates) will be added to any increase in the Subordinated Amount for purposes of determining the amount of interest accrual on the Class LT-Accrual Interest payable as principal on the LT-Accretion Directed Classes on the next Distribution Date pursuant to the first sentence of this paragraph. All payments of scheduled principal and prepayments of principal generated by the Mortgage Loans and all Subsequent Recoveries allocable to principal shall be allocated (i) 50% to the Class LT-Accrual Interest, the Class LT-Group I Interest and Class LT-Group II Interest (and further allocated among these Lower-Tier Regular Interests in the manner described below) and (ii) 50% to the LT-Accretion Directed Classes (such principal payments and Subsequent Recoveries shall be allocated among such LT-Accretion Directed Classes in an amount equal to 50% of the principal amounts and Subsequent Recoveries allocated to their respective Corresponding Classes), until paid in full. Notwithstanding the above, principal payments allocated to the Class X Interest that result in the reduction in the Subordinated Amount shall be allocated to the Class LT-Accrual Interest (until paid in full). Realized Losses shall be applied so that after all distributions have been made on each Distribution Date (i) the Lower-Tier Principal Amount of each of the LT-Accretion Directed Classes is equal to 50% of the Class Certificate Balance of their Corresponding Class, and (ii) the Class LT-Accrual Interest, the Class LT-Group I Interest and the Class LT-Group II Interest (and further allocated among these Lower-Tier Regular Interests in the manner described below) is equal to 50% of the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans plus 50% of the Subordinated Amount. Any increase in the Class Certificate Balance of a Class of Offered Certificates as a result of a Subsequent Recovery shall increase the Lower-Tier Principal Amount of the Corresponding Lower-Tier Regular Interest by 50% of such increase, and the remaining 50% of such increase shall increase the Lower-Tier Principal Amount of the Class LT-Accrual Interest, the Class LT-Group I Interest and the Class LT-Group II Interest (such increase shall be further allocated among such Lower-Tier Regular Interests in the manner described below). As among the Class LT-Accrual Interest, the Class LT-Group I Interest and the Class LT-Group II Interest, all payments of scheduled principal and prepayments of principal generated by the Mortgage Loans, all Subsequent Recoveries and all Realized Losses, allocable to such Lower-Tier Regular Interests and all increases in the Lower-Tier Principal Amount of such Lower-Tier Regular Interests as a result of Subsequent Recoveries shall be allocated (i) to the Class LT-Group I Interest and the Class LT-Group II Interest, each from the related Loan Group so that their respective Lower-Tier Principal Amounts (computed to at least eight decimal places) are equal to 0.001% of the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans in the related Loan Group and (ii) the remainder to the Class LT-Accrual Interest. Upper-Tier REMIC The Upper-Tier REMIC shall issue the following interests, and each such interest, other than the Class UT-R Interest, is hereby designated as a regular interest in the Upper-Tier REMIC. The Class UT-R Interest is hereby designated as the sole class of residual interests in the Upper-Tier REMIC and shall be represented by the Class R Certificates.

- ----------------- (1) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period) this interest shall bear interest at the least of (i) the Pass-Through Rate (determined without regard to the Loan Group I Cap or WAC Cap) for the Corresponding Class of Certificates, (ii) the Lower-Tier Interest Rate for the Class LT-Group I Interest (the "Upper-Tier REMIC Loan Group I Rate") and (ii) the Upper-Tier REMIC WAC Rate. (2) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period) this interest shall bear interest at the least of (i) the Pass-Through Rate (determined without regard to the Loan Group II Cap or WAC Cap) for the Corresponding Class of Certificates, (ii) the Lower-Tier Interest Rate for the Class LT-Group II Interest (the "Upper-Tier REMIC Loan Group II Rate") and (ii) the Upper-Tier REMIC WAC Rate. (3) For any Distribution Date (and the related Interest Accrual Period) this interest shall bear interest at the lesser of (i) the Pass-Through Rate (determined without regard to the WAC Cap) for the Corresponding Class of Certificates and (ii) the Upper-Tier REMIC WAC Rate. (4) This interest is an interest-only interest and does not have a principal balance. On each Distribution Date, the Class IO Interest shall be entitled to receive all interest distributable on the Class LT-IO Interest. This interest shall be beneficially owned by the holders of the Class X Certificates and shall be held as an asset of the Swap Account. (5) The Class X Interest has an initial principal balance of $79,340,639 but will not accrue interest on such balance but will accrue interest on a notional principal balance. As of any Distribution Date, the Class X Interest shall have a notional principal balance equal to the aggregate of the Lower-Tier Principal Amounts of the Lower-Tier Regular Interests (other than the Class LT-IO Interest) as of the first day of the related Interest Accrual Period. With respect to any Interest Accrual Period, the Class X Interest shall bear interest at a rate equal to the excess, if any, of the Upper-Tier REMIC WAC Rate over the product of (i) 2 and (ii) the weighted average of the Lower-Tier Interest Rates of the Lower-Tier REMIC Interests (other than the Class LT-IO Interest), where the Lower-Tier Interest Rate on each of the Class LT-Accrual Interest, Class LT-Group I Interest and Class LT-Group II Interest is subject to a cap equal to zero and each LT-Accretion Directed Class is subject to a cap equal to the Upper-Tier Interest Rate on its Corresponding Class of Upper-Tier Regular Interest. With respect to any Distribution Date, interest that so accrues on the notional principal balance of the Class X Interest shall be deferred in an amount equal to any increase in the Subordinated Amount on such Distribution Date. Such deferred interest shall not itself bear interest. (6) The Class UT-R Interest does not have an interest rate or a principal balance. On each Distribution Date, interest distributable in respect of the Lower-Tier Interests for such Distribution Date shall be deemed to be distributed on the interests in the Upper-Tier REMIC at the rates shown above, provided that the Class IO Interest shall be entitled to receive interest before any other interest in the Upper-Tier REMIC. On each Distribution Date, all Realized Losses, Subsequent Recoveries and all payments of principal shall be allocated to the Upper-Tier Interests until the outstanding principal balance of each such interest equals the outstanding Class Certificate Balance of the Corresponding Class of Certificates as of such Distribution Date.

(7) The Class X Certificates will represent beneficial ownership of the Class X Interest, the Class IO Interest, the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, the right to Class IO Shortfalls and amounts in the Excess Reserve Fund Account and the Swap Account, subject to the obligation to make payments from the Excess Reserve Fund Account in respect of Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and amounts in the Swap Account subject to the obligation to make Net Swap Payments, Swap Termination Payments and Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and, without duplication, Upper Tier Carryforward Amounts. For federal income tax purposes, the Securities Administrator will treat a Class X Certificateholder's obligation to make payments from the Excess Reserve Fund Account or the Swap Account as payments made pursuant to an interest rate cap contract written by the Class X Certificateholders in favor of each Class of Offered Certificates. Such rights of the Class X Certificateholders and Offered Certificateholders shall be treated as held in a portion of the Trust Fund that is treated as a grantor trust under subpart E, Part I of subchapter J of the Code. (8) The Class UT-R Interest does not have an interest rate or a principal balance. (9) Each of these Certificates will represent not only the ownership of the Corresponding Class of Upper-Tier Regular Interest but also the right to receive payments from the Excess Reserve Fund Account and the Swap Account in respect of any Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and, without duplication, Upper Tier CarryForward Amounts. Each of these Certificates will also be subject to the obligation to pay Class IO Shortfalls as described in Section 8.13. For federal income tax purposes, any amount distributed on the Offered Certificates on any such Distribution Date in excess of the amount distributable on their Corresponding Class of Upper-Tier Regular Interest on such Distribution Date shall be treated as having been paid from the Excess Reserve Fund Account or the Swap Account, as applicable, and any amount distributable on such Corresponding Class of Upper-Tier Regular Interest on such Distribution Date in excess of the amount distributable on the Offered Certificates on such Distribution Date shall be treated as having been paid to the Swap Account, all pursuant to, and as further provided in, Section 8.13. For federal income tax purposes, the Securities Administrator will treat a Certificateholder's right to receive payments from the Excess Reserve Fund Account or the Swap Account as payments made pursuant to an interest rate cap contract written by the Class X Certificateholders. The minimum denomination for each Class of Certificates, other than the Class P, Class R and the Class X Certificates, will be $25,000 with integral multiples of $1 in excess thereof. The minimum denomination for the Class P and the Class X Certificates will each be a 1% Percentage Interest in such Class. The Class R Certificate will represent a 100% Percentage Interest in such Class. It is expected that each Class of Certificates will receive its final distribution of principal and interest on or prior to the Final Scheduled Distribution Date.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.01, in those instances where the public recording office retains or loses the original Mortgage or assignment after it has been recorded, the obligations of the applicable Responsible Party shall be deemed to have been satisfied upon delivery by the applicable Responsible Party to the applicable Custodian prior to the Closing Date of a copy of such Mortgage or assignment, as the case may be, certified (such certification to be an original thereof) by the public recording office to be a true and complete copy of the recorded original thereof.

Scheduled Payments due with respect to Substitute Mortgage Loans in the Due Period of substitution shall not be part of the Trust Fund and will be retained by the Depositor or the applicable Responsible Party, as applicable, on the next succeeding Distribution Date. For the Due Period of substitution, distributions to Certificateholders will include the Scheduled Payment due on any Deleted Mortgage Loan for such Due Period and thereafter the Depositor or the applicable Responsible Party, as applicable, shall be entitled to retain all amounts received in respect of such Deleted Mortgage Loan. (j) The applicable Servicer, based upon information provided by the Depositor or the applicable Responsible Party, as applicable, shall amend the Mortgage Loan Schedule for the benefit of the Certificateholders to reflect the removal of such Deleted Mortgage Loan and the substitution of the Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans and such Servicer shall deliver the amended Mortgage Loan Schedule to the Securities Administrator and the applicable Custodian.

Upon receipt of a Request for Release in connection with any such substitution indicating the deposit into the applicable Collection Account of the amount required to be deposited therein in connection with such substitution as described in Section 2.03(k), the applicable Custodian shall release the Mortgage File held for the benefit of the Certificateholders relating to such Deleted Mortgage Loan to the applicable Responsible Party and the Trustee shall execute and deliver at the direction of the Depositor or the applicable Responsible Party, as applicable, such instruments of transfer or assignment prepared by the Depositor or the applicable Responsible Party, as applicable, in each case without recourse, as shall be necessary to vest title in the Depositor or the applicable Responsible Party, as applicable, of the Trustee's interest in any Deleted Mortgage Loan substituted for pursuant to this Section 2.03. (k) For any month in which the Depositor or any Responsible Party substitutes one or more Substitute Mortgage Loans for one or more Deleted Mortgage Loans, the applicable Servicer will determine the amount (if any) by which the aggregate unpaid principal balance of all such Substitute Mortgage Loans as of the date of substitution is less than the aggregate unpaid principal balance of all such Deleted Mortgage Loans. The amount of such shortage, plus an amount equal to the sum of (i) any accrued and unpaid interest on the Deleted Mortgage Loans and (ii) all unreimbursed Servicing Advances with respect to such Deleted Mortgage Loans, or the amount of any similar shortage with respect to a Substitute Mortgage Loan substituted by a Responsible Party under this Agreement (collectively, the "Substitution Adjustment Amount"), shall be deposited into the applicable Collection Account of the related Servicer by the Depositor or the Responsible Party, as applicable, on or before the Distribution Account Deposit Date for the Distribution Date following the Prepayment Period during which the related Mortgage Loan became required to be purchased or replaced hereunder. (l) Any Mortgage Loan repurchased pursuant to this Section 2.03 will be removed from the Trust Fund. The applicable Servicer shall amend the Mortgage Loan Schedule for the benefit of the Certificateholders to reflect the removal of any Mortgage Loan repurchased and such Servicer shall deliver the amended Mortgage Loan Schedule to the Securities Administrator and the applicable Custodian. For purposes of determining the applicable Repurchase Price, any such repurchase shall occur or shall be deemed to occur as of the last day of the applicable Prepayment Period. (m) In the event that the Depositor or any Responsible Party shall have repurchased a Mortgage Loan pursuant to this Agreement, the Repurchase Price therefor shall be deposited by the applicable Servicer in the applicable Collection Account of the related Servicer pursuant to Section 3.10 on or before the Distribution Account Deposit Date for the Distribution Date following the Prepayment Period during which the Depositor or such Responsible Party, as applicable, repurchased such Mortgage Loan and upon such deposit of the Repurchase Price and receipt of a Request for Release in the form of Exhibit J hereto, indicating such deposit, the applicable Custodian shall release the related Custodial File held for the benefit of the Certificateholders to such Person as directed by the applicable Servicer, and the Trustee shall execute and deliver at such Person's direction such instruments of transfer or assignment prepared by such Person, in each case without recourse, representation or warranty, as shall be necessary to transfer title from the Trustee. (n) In addition to any repurchase or substitution obligation by any Responsible Party under this Agreement, each Responsible Party shall indemnify the Depositor and its Affiliates, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers, the Sponsor, the Trustee, the Custodians and the Trust for any breach of any representation and warranty of such Responsible Party set forth in this Agreement, in accordance with the indemnification provisions relating to breaches of representations and warranties (including without limitation, the representations and warranties set forth in paragraph (aaa) of Schedule VI and paragraph (yy) of Schedule VIII, as applicable, to this Agreement) and defective Mortgage Loans set forth in the WMC Purchase Agreement or the Decision One Purchase Agreement, as applicable, as if such indemnification provisions were set forth herein for the benefit of the Depositor and its Affiliates, the Servicers, the Sponsor, the Trustee, the Custodians and the Trust. This indemnity shall survive the termination of this Agreement. (o) It is understood and agreed by the parties hereto that the obligation of the Depositor under this Agreement or any Responsible Party under this Agreement to cure, repurchase or substitute any Mortgage Loan as to which a breach of a representation and warranty has occurred and is continuing, together with any related indemnification obligations set forth herein, shall constitute the sole remedies against such Persons respecting such breach available to Certificateholders, the Depositor (if applicable), or the Trustee on their behalf.

Section 2.04 Execution and Delivery of Certificates. The Trustee acknowledges the transfer and assignment to it of the Trust Fund and, concurrently with such transfer and assignment, the Securities Administrator has executed and delivered to or upon the order of the Depositor, the Certificates in authorized Denominations evidencing directly or indirectly the entire ownership of the Trust Fund. The Trustee agrees to hold the Trust Fund and exercise the rights referred to above for the benefit of all present and future Holders of the Certificates. Section 2.05 REMIC Matters. The Preliminary Statement sets forth the designations for federal income tax purposes of all interests created hereby. The "Startup Day" of each Trust REMIC for purposes of the REMIC Provisions shall be the Closing Date.

Amounts distributable to the Class X Certificates (prior to any reduction for any Basis Risk Payment or Swap Termination Payment), exclusive of any amounts received from the Swap Provider, shall be deemed paid from the Upper-Tier REMIC in respect of the Class X Interest to the Holders of the Class X Certificates prior to distribution of any Basis Risk Payments to the Offered Certificates. For federal income tax purposes, any amount distributed on the Offered Certificates on any Distribution Date in excess of the amount distributable on their Corresponding Class of Upper-Tier Regular Interest on such Distribution Date shall be treated as having been paid from the Excess Reserve Fund Account or the Swap Account, as applicable, and any amount distributable on such Corresponding Class of Upper-Tier Regular Interest on such Distribution Date in excess of the amount distributable on the Corresponding Class of Offered Certificates on such Distribution Date shall be treated as having been paid to the Swap Account, all pursuant to and as further provided in Section 8.13.

ARTICLE III ADMINISTRATION AND SERVICING OF MORTGAGE LOANS Section 3.01 Servicers to Service Mortgage Loans. (a) For and on behalf of the Certificateholders, each Servicer shall service and administer the Mortgage Loans for which it is acting as Servicer in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the respective Mortgage Loans and, to the extent consistent with such terms, in the same manner in which it services and administers similar mortgage loans for its own portfolio, giving due consideration to customary and usual standards of practice of mortgage lenders and loan servicers administering similar mortgage loans but without regard to: (i) any relationship that such Servicer, any Subservicer or any Affiliate of such Servicer or any Subservicer may have with the related Mortgagor; (ii) the ownership or non-ownership of any Certificate by such Servicer or any Affiliate of such Servicer; (iii) such Servicer's obligation to make P&I Advances or Servicing Advances; or (iv) such Servicer's or any Subservicer's right to receive compensation for its services hereunder or with respect to any particular transaction. To the extent consistent with the foregoing, each Servicer shall seek to maximize the timely and complete recovery of principal and interest on the Mortgage Notes. Subject only to the above-described servicing standards and the terms of this Agreement and of the respective Mortgage Loans, each Servicer shall have full power and authority, acting alone or through Subservicers as provided in Section 3.02, to do or cause to be done any and all things in connection with such servicing and administration which it may deem necessary or desirable.

Each Servicer shall service and administer the Mortgage Loans in accordance with applicable state and federal law and shall provide to the Mortgagors any reports required to be provided to them thereby. Each Servicer covenants that its computer and other systems used in servicing the Mortgage Loans operate in a manner such that the applicable Servicer can service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms of this Pooling and Servicing Agreement. Each Servicer shall also comply in the performance of this Agreement with all reasonable rules and requirements of each insurer under any standard hazard insurance policy. Subject to Section 3.16, the Trustee or the Custodian, as applicable, shall execute, at the written request of a Servicer, and furnish to such Servicer and any Subservicer such documents provided to the Trustee or the Custodian, as applicable, as are necessary or appropriate to enable such Servicer or any Subservicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties hereunder, and the Trustee hereby grants to each Servicer, and this Agreement shall constitute, a power of attorney to carry out such duties, including a power of attorney in the form of Exhibit Q hereto to take title to Mortgaged Properties after foreclosure in the name of and on behalf of the Trustee. The Trustee shall execute a separate power of attorney in favor of each Servicer for the purposes described herein to the extent necessary or desirable to enable each Servicer to perform its duties hereunder. The Trustee shall not be liable for the actions of any Servicer or any Subservicers under such powers of attorney. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, no Servicer or Subservicer shall without the Trustee's consent: (i) initiate any action, suit or proceeding solely under the Trustee's name without indicating such Servicer's or Subservicer's, as applicable, representative capacity, or (ii) take any action with the intent to, or which actually does cause, the Trustee to be registered to do business in any state.

Any cost incurred by a Servicer or by Subservicers in effecting the timely payment of taxes and assessments on a Mortgaged Property shall not be added to the unpaid principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan, notwithstanding that the terms of such Mortgage Loan so permit. (c) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, a Servicer may not make any future advances with respect to a Mortgage Loan (except as provided in Section 4.01) and none of the Servicers shall (i) permit any modification with respect to any Mortgage Loan that would change the Mortgage Rate, reduce or increase the principal balance (except for reductions resulting from actual payments of principal) or change the final maturity date on such Mortgage Loan (except for a reduction of interest payments resulting from the application of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act or any similar state statutes) or (ii) permit any modification, waiver or amendment of any term of any Mortgage Loan that would both (A) effect an exchange or reissuance of such Mortgage Loan under Section 1001 of the Code (or final, temporary or proposed Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder) and (B) cause any Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC under the Code or the imposition of any tax on "prohibited transactions" or "contributions after the startup date" under the REMIC Provisions, or (iii) except as provided in Section 3.07(a), waive any Prepayment Charges. (d) Each Servicer may delegate its responsibilities under this Agreement; provided, however, that no such delegation shall release such Servicer from the responsibilities or liabilities arising under this Agreement. (e) In the event that the Mortgage Loan Documents relating to any Mortgage Loan contain provisions requiring the related Mortgagor to submit to binding arbitration any disputes arising in connection with such Mortgage Loan, the applicable Servicer shall be entitled to waive any such provisions on behalf of the Trust and to send written notice of such waiver to the related Mortgagor, although the Mortgagor may still require arbitration of such disputes at its option. Section 3.02 Subservicing Agreements between a Servicer and Subservicers. (a) Each Servicer may enter into subservicing agreements with Subservicers for the servicing and administration of the Mortgage Loans ("Subservicing Agreements"). Each Servicer represents and warrants to the other parties hereto that, except as otherwise set forth herein, no Subservicing Agreement is in effect as of the Closing Date with respect to any Mortgage Loans required to be serviced by it hereunder. The applicable Servicer shall give notice to the Depositor and the Securities Administrator of any such Subservicer and Subservicing Agreement, which notice shall contain all information (including without limitation a copy of the Subservicing Agreement) reasonably necessary to enable the Securities Administrator, pursuant to Section 8.12(g), to accurately and timely report the event under Item 6.02 of Form 8-K pursuant to the Exchange Act (if such reports under the Exchange Act are required to be filed under the Exchange Act). No Subservicing Agreement shall be effective until 30 days after such written notice is received by both the Depositor and the Securities Administrator. The Securities Administrator shall not be required to review or consent to such Subservicing Agreements and shall have no liability in connection therewith. (b) Each Subservicer shall be (i) authorized to transact business in the state or states in which the related Mortgaged Properties it is to service are situated, if and to the extent required by applicable law to enable the Subservicer to perform its obligations hereunder and under the Subservicing Agreement, (ii) an institution approved as a mortgage loan originator by the Federal Housing Administration or an institution that has deposit accounts insured by the FDIC and (iii) a Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae approved mortgage servicer. Each Subservicing Agreement must impose on the Subservicer requirements conforming to the provisions set forth in Section 3.08 and provide for servicing of the Mortgage Loans consistent with the terms of this Agreement. Each Servicer will examine each Subservicing Agreement to which it is a party and will be familiar with the terms thereof. The terms of any Subservicing Agreement will not be inconsistent with any of the provisions of this Agreement. Each Servicer and the respective Subservicers may enter into and make amendments to the Subservicing Agreements or enter into different forms of Subservicing Agreements; provided, however, that any such amendments or different forms shall be consistent with and not violate the provisions of this Agreement, and that no such amendment or different form shall be made or entered into which could be reasonably expected to be materially adverse to the interests of the Trustee, without the consent of the Trustee. Any variation without the consent of the Trustee from the provisions set forth in Section 3.08 relating to insurance or priority requirements of Subservicing Accounts, or credits and charges to the Subservicing Accounts or the timing and amount of remittances by the Subservicers to such Servicer, are conclusively deemed to be inconsistent with this Agreement and therefore prohibited. Each Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee, the Securities Administrator and the Depositor copies of all Subservicing Agreements, and any amendments or modifications thereof, promptly upon such Servicer's execution and delivery of such instruments. (c) As part of its servicing activities hereunder, each Servicer (except as otherwise provided in the last sentence of this paragraph), for the benefit of the Trustee, shall enforce the obligations of each Subservicer under the related Subservicing Agreement to which such Servicer is a party, including, without limitation, any obligation to make advances in respect of delinquent payments as required by a Subservicing Agreement. Such enforcement, including, without limitation, the legal prosecution of claims, termination of Subservicing Agreements, and the pursuit of other appropriate remedies, shall be in such form and carried out to such an extent and at such time as such Servicer, in its good faith business judgment, would require were it the owner of the related Mortgage Loans. Each Servicer shall pay the costs of such enforcement at its own expense, and shall be reimbursed therefor only (i) from a general recovery resulting from such enforcement, to the extent, if any, that such recovery exceeds all amounts due in respect of the related Mortgage Loans or (ii) from a specific recovery of costs, expenses or attorneys' fees against the party against whom such enforcement is directed. (d) Each Servicer shall cause any Subservicer engaged by such Servicer (or by any Subservicer) for the benefit of the Depositor and the Trustee to comply with the provisions of this Section 3.02 and with Sections 3.22, 3.23, 6.02 and 6.05 of this Agreement to the same extent as if such Subservicer were such Servicer, and to provide the information required with respect to such Subservicer under Section 8.12 of this Agreement. Such Servicer shall be responsible for obtaining from each such Subservicer and delivering to applicable Persons any servicer compliance statement required to be delivered by such Subservicer under Section 3.22 and any assessment of compliance report and related accountant's attestation required to be delivered by such Subservicer under Section 3.23, in each case as and when required to be delivered. (e) Subject to the conditions set forth in this Section 3.02(e), each Servicer and any Subservicer engaged by such Servicer is permitted to utilize one or more Subcontractors to perform certain of its obligations hereunder. Such Servicer shall promptly upon request provide to the Depositor a written description (in form and substance satisfactory to the Depositor) of the role and function of each Subcontractor utilized by such Servicer or any such Subservicer, specifying no later than the date specified for delivery of the annual report on assessment of compliance set forth in Section 3.23(d) (i) the identity of each such Subcontractor, if any, that is "participating in the servicing function" within the meaning of Item 1122 of Regulation AB, and (ii) which elements of the Servicing Criteria will be addressed in assessments of compliance provided by each Subcontractor identified pursuant to clause (i) of this paragraph. As a condition to the utilization by such Servicer or any such Subservicer of any Subcontractor determined to be "participating in the servicing function" within the meaning of Item 1122 of Regulation AB, such Servicer shall cause any such Subcontractor used by such Servicer (or by any such Subservicer) for the benefit of the Depositor and the Trustee to comply with the provisions of Section 3.23 of this Agreement to the same extent as if such Subcontractor were such Servicer. Such Servicer shall be responsible for obtaining from each such Subcontractor and delivering to the applicable Persons any assessment of compliance report and related accountant's attestation required to be delivered by such Subcontractor under Section 3.23, in each case as and when required to be delivered. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Servicer engages a Subcontractor in connection with the performance of any of its duties under this Agreement, such Servicer shall be responsible for determining whether such Subcontractor is a "servicer" within the meaning of Item 1101 of Regulation AB and whether any such affiliate or third-party vendor meets the criteria in Item 1108(a)(2)(i) through (iii) of Regulation AB. If a Servicer determines, pursuant to the preceding sentence, that such Subcontractor is a "servicer" within the meaning of Item 1101 of Regulation AB and meets the criteria in Item 1108(a)(2)(i) through (iii) of Regulation AB, then such Subcontractor shall be deemed to be a Subservicer for purposes of this Agreement, the engagement of such Subservicer shall not be effective unless and until notice is given pursuant to Section 3.02(a) and such Servicer shall comply with Section 3.02(d) with respect thereto. (f) As of the Closing Date, JPMorgan has appointed Chase Home Finance LLC ("CHF") to act as the sole Subservicer pursuant to a Subservicing Agreement (a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit W) with respect to JPMorgan's servicing obligations under this Agreement. So long as JPMorgan is not a rated servicer by each Rating Agency, JPMorgan agrees that prior to replacing CHF as Subservicer, other than with an affiliate of JPMorgan that is a rated servicer, it will obtain confirmation from each Rating Agency that such replacement of CHF as Subservicer with respect to JPMorgan's servicing obligations related to the Mortgage Loans will not cause the then current rating on any Class of Certificates to be qualified, withdrawn or lowered by any Rating Agency and agrees that any replacement subservicer shall agree to subservice in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, including but not limited to the consideration of whether to waive a Prepayment Charge hereunder. Section 3.03 Successor Subservicers. Each Servicer shall be entitled to terminate any Subservicing Agreement to which such Servicer is a party and the rights and obligations of any Subservicer pursuant to any such Subservicing Agreement in accordance with the terms and conditions of such Subservicing Agreement; provided, however, that the termination, resignation or removal of a Subservicer shall not be effective until 30 days after written notice is received by both the Depositor and the Securities Administrator that contains all information reasonably necessary to enable the Securities Administrator, pursuant to Section 8.12(g), to accurately and timely report the event under Item 6.02 of Form 8-K pursuant to the Exchange Act (if such reports under the Exchange Act are required to be filed under the Exchange Act). In the event of termination of any Subservicer, all servicing obligations of such Subservicer shall be assumed simultaneously by the applicable Servicer party to the related Subservicing Agreement without any act or deed on the part of such Subservicer or such Servicer, and such Servicer either shall service directly the related Mortgage Loans or shall enter into a Subservicing Agreement with a successor Subservicer which qualifies under Section 3.02. Any Subservicing Agreement shall include the provision that such agreement may be immediately terminated by the Depositor or the Trustee without fee, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, in the event that the Servicer who is party to the related Subservicing Agreement shall, for any reason, no longer be a Servicer (including termination due to an Event of Default). Section 3.04 Liability of the Servicers. Notwithstanding any Subservicing Agreement, any of the provisions of this Agreement relating to agreements or arrangements between a Servicer and a Subservicer or reference to actions taken through a Subservicer or otherwise, such Servicer shall remain obligated and primarily liable to the Trustee for the servicing and administering of the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.01 without diminution of such obligation or liability by virtue of such Subservicing Agreements or arrangements or by virtue of indemnification from the Subservicer and to the same extent and under the same terms and conditions as if such Servicer alone were servicing and administering such Mortgage Loans. Each Servicer shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with a Subservicer for indemnification of such Servicer by such Subservicer and nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification. Section 3.05 No Contractual Relationship between Subservicers and the Trustee. Any Subservicing Agreement that may be entered into and any transactions or services relating to the Mortgage Loans involving a Subservicer in its capacity as such shall be deemed to be between the Subservicer and the related Servicer alone, and the Trustee (or any other successor to such Servicer) shall not be deemed a party thereto and shall have no claims, rights, obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to the Subservicer except as set forth in Section 3.06. Each Servicer shall be solely liable for all fees owed by it to any Subservicer, irrespective of whether such Servicer's compensation pursuant to this Agreement is sufficient to pay such fees. Section 3.06 Assumption or Termination of Subservicing Agreements by Trustee. In the event a Servicer at any time shall for any reason no longer be a Servicer (including by reason of the occurrence of an Event of Default), the Trustee, as successor servicer, or its designee, or another successor servicer if the successor is not the Trustee, shall thereupon assume all of the rights and obligations of such Servicer under each Subservicing Agreement that such Servicer may have entered into, with copies thereof provided to the Trustee, or another successor servicer if the successor is not the Trustee, prior to the Trustee, or such other successor servicer if the successor is not the Trustee, assuming such rights and obligations, unless the Trustee elects to terminate any Subservicing Agreement in accordance with its terms as provided in Section 3.03. Upon such assumption, the Trustee, as successor servicer, its designee or the successor servicer shall be deemed, subject to Section 3.03, to have assumed all of such Servicer's interest therein and to have replaced such Servicer as a party to each Subservicing Agreement to which the predecessor servicer was a party to the same extent as if each Subservicing Agreement had been assigned to the assuming party, except that (i) such Servicer shall not thereby be relieved of any liability or obligations under any such Subservicing Agreement that arose before it ceased to be a Servicer and (ii) none of the Depositor, the Trustee, their designees or any successor to such Servicer shall be deemed to have assumed any liability or obligation of such Servicer that arose before it ceased to be a Servicer. Each Servicer at its expense shall, upon request of the Trustee, its designee or the successor servicer deliver to the assuming party all documents and records relating to each Subservicing Agreement to which it is a party and the Mortgage Loans then being serviced by it and an accounting of amounts collected and held by or on behalf of it, and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the Subservicing Agreements to the assuming party. Section 3.07 Collection of Certain Mortgage Loan Payments. (a) Each Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Mortgage Loans, and shall, to the extent such procedures shall be consistent with this Agreement and the terms and provisions of any applicable Insurance Policies, follow such collection procedures as it would follow with respect to mortgage loans comparable to the Mortgage Loans and held for its own account. Consistent with the foregoing and Accepted Servicing Practices, each Servicer may (i) waive any late payment charge or, if applicable, any penalty interest, or (ii) extend the Due Dates for the Scheduled Payments due on a Mortgage Note for a period of not greater than 180 days; provided that any extension pursuant to clause (ii) above shall not affect the amortization schedule of any Mortgage Loan for purposes of any computation hereunder, except as provided below. In the event of any such arrangement pursuant to clause (ii) above, the applicable Servicer shall make timely advances on such Mortgage Loan during such extension pursuant to Section 4.01 and in accordance with the amortization schedule of such Mortgage Loan without modification thereof by reason of such arrangements, subject to Section 4.01(d) pursuant to which such Servicer shall not be required to make any such advances that are Nonrecoverable P&I Advances. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Servicer may waive, or permit a Subservicer to waive, in whole or in part, a Prepayment Charge only under the following circumstances: (i) such waiver relates to a default or a reasonably foreseeable default and would, in the reasonable judgment of such Servicer, maximize recovery of total proceeds taking into account the value of such Prepayment Charge and the related Mortgage Loan; provided, however, that the applicable Servicer or Subservicer shall waive such Prepayment Charge if the Mortgage Loan is accelerated or paid-off in connection with the workout of a delinquent Mortgage Loan or due to the related Mortgagor's default, notwithstanding that the terms of the Mortgage Loan or federal or state law might permit the imposition of such Prepayment Charge, (ii) such Prepayment Charge is not permitted to be collected by applicable federal, state or local law or regulation or (iii) the collection of such Prepayment Charge would be considered "predatory" pursuant to written guidance published or issued by any applicable federal, state or local regulatory authority acting in its official capacity and having jurisdiction over such matters. If a Prepayment Charge is waived other than as permitted by the prior sentence, then the applicable Servicer is required to pay the amount of such waived Prepayment Charge, for the benefit of the Holders of the Class P Certificates, by depositing such amount into the related Collection Account together with and at the time that the amount prepaid on the related Mortgage Loan is required to be deposited into the related Collection Account; provided, however, that the applicable Servicer shall not have an obligation to pay the amount of any uncollected Prepayment Charge if the failure to collect such amount is the direct result of inaccurate or incomplete information on the Mortgage Loan Schedule in effect at such time. (b) (i) The Securities Administrator shall establish and maintain the Excess Reserve Fund Account, on behalf of the Class X Certificateholders, to receive any Basis Risk Payment and to secure their limited recourse obligation to pay to the Offered Certificateholders Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts (prior to using any Net Swap Receipts). For the avoidance of doubt, any Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts shall be paid to the Offered Certificates first from the Excess Reserve Fund Account and then from the Swap Account. (ii) On each Distribution Date, the Securities Administrator shall deposit the amount of any Basis Risk Payment for such date into the Excess Reserve Fund Account. (c) (i) On each Distribution Date on which there exists a Basis Risk CarryForward Amount on any Class of Certificates, the Securities Administrator shall (1) withdraw from the Distribution Account and deposit in the Excess Reserve Fund Account, as set forth in Section 4.02(a)(iii)(S), the lesser of (x) the Class X Distributable Amount (without regard to the reduction in clause (iii) in the definition thereof) (to the extent remaining after the distributions specified in Sections 4.02(a)(iii)(A)-(R)) and (y) the aggregate Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts for such Distribution Date and (2) withdraw from the Excess Reserve Fund Account amounts necessary to pay to such Class or Classes of Certificates the Basis Risk CarryForward Amount. Such payments, along with payments from the Swap Account, shall be allocated to those Classes on a pro rata basis based upon the amount of Basis Risk CarryForward Amount owed to each such Class and shall be paid in the priority set forth in Section 4.02(a)(iii)(T). (ii) The Securities Administrator shall account for the Excess Reserve Fund Account as an asset of a grantor trust under subpart E, Part I of the subchapter J of the Code and not an asset of any Trust REMIC. The beneficial owners of the Excess Reserve Fund Account are the Class X Certificateholders. For all federal tax purposes, amounts transferred by the Upper-Tier REMIC to the Excess Reserve Fund Account shall be treated as distributions by the Securities Administrator to the Class X Certificateholders. (iii) Any Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts paid by the Securities Administrator to the Offered Certificateholders shall be accounted for by the Securities Administrator as amounts paid first to the Holders of the Class X Certificates and then to the respective Class or Classes of Offered Certificates. In addition, the Securities Administrator shall account for the Offered Certificateholders' rights to receive payments of Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts (along with payments of Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts from the Swap Account) as rights in a limited recourse interest rate cap contract written by the Class X Certificateholders in favor of the Offered Certificateholders. (iv) Notwithstanding any provision contained in this Agreement, the Securities Administrator shall not be required to make any payments from the Excess Reserve Fund Account except as expressly set forth in this Section 3.07(c) and Sections 4.02(a)(iii)(T) and (V). (d) The Securities Administrator shall establish and maintain the Distribution Account on behalf of the Certificateholders. The Depositor shall cause to be deposited into the Distribution Account on the Closing Date the Closing Date Deposit Amount. The Securities Administrator shall, promptly upon receipt, deposit in the Distribution Account and retain therein the following: (i) the aggregate amounts remitted by the Servicers to the Securities Administrator pursuant to Section 3.11; (ii) any amounts deposited by the Servicers pursuant to Section 3.12(b) in connection with any losses on Permitted Investments; and (iii) any other amounts deposited hereunder which are required to be deposited in the Distribution Account. In the event that any Servicer shall remit any amount not required to be remitted, it may at any time direct the Securities Administrator in writing to withdraw such amount from the Distribution Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. Such direction may be accomplished by delivering notice to the Securities Administrator which describes the amounts deposited in error in the Distribution Account. All funds deposited in the Distribution Account shall be held by the Securities Administrator in trust for the Certificateholders until disbursed in accordance with this Agreement or withdrawn in accordance with Section 4.02. (e) The Securities Administrator may invest the funds in the Distribution Account, in one or more Permitted Investments, in accordance with Section 3.12. Each Servicer shall direct the Securities Administrator to withdraw from the Distribution Account and to remit to such Servicer no less than monthly, all income and gain realized from the investment of the portion of funds deposited in the Distribution Account by such Servicer (except during the Securities Administrator Float Period). The Securities Administrator may withdraw from the Distribution Account any income or gain earned from the investment of funds deposited therein during the Securities Administrator Float Period for its own benefit. (f) Each Servicer shall give notice to the Securities Administrator, and the Securities Administrator shall give notice to each Rating Agency and the Depositor of any proposed change of the location of the related Collection Account within a reasonable period of time prior to any change thereof. (g) In order to comply with its duties under the USA Patriot Act of 2001, the Securities Administrator shall obtain and verify certain information and documentation from the other parties to this Agreement including, but not limited to, each such party's name, address and other identifying information. (h) In order to comply with laws, rules and regulations applicable to banking institutions, including those relating to the funding of terrorist activities and money laundering, the Trustee is required to obtain, verify and record certain information relating to individuals and entities which maintain a business relationship with the Trustee. Accordingly, each of the parties agrees to provide to the Trustee upon its request from time to time such party's complete name, address, tax identification number and such other identifying information together with copies of such party's constituting documentation, securities disclosure documentation and such other identifying documentation as may be available for such party. (i) On or prior to the Determination Date, each Custodian shall deliver an invoice to the Securities Administrator, setting forth the amount of each Custodian Fee for the related Distribution Date. On each Distribution Date, the Securities Administrator shall remit each Custodian Fee to the applicable Custodian from funds in the Distribution Account. Section 3.08 Subservicing Accounts. In those cases where a Subservicer is servicing a Mortgage Loan pursuant to a Subservicing Agreement, the Subservicer will be required to establish and maintain one or more segregated accounts (collectively, the "Subservicing Account"). The Subservicing Account shall be an Eligible Account and shall otherwise be acceptable to the related Servicer. The Subservicer shall deposit in the clearing account (which account must be an Eligible Account) in which it customarily deposits payments and collections on mortgage loans in connection with its mortgage loan servicing activities on a daily basis, and in no event more than one Business Day after the Subservicer's receipt thereof, all proceeds of Mortgage Loans received by the Subservicer less its servicing compensation to the extent permitted by the Subservicing Agreement, and shall thereafter deposit such amounts in the Subservicing Account, in no event more than two Business Days after the deposit of such funds into the clearing account. The Subservicer shall thereafter deposit such proceeds in the related Collection Account of the applicable Servicer or remit such proceeds to such Servicer for deposit in the related Collection Account of such Servicer not later than two Business Days after the deposit of such amounts in the Subservicing Account. For purposes of this Agreement, such Servicer shall be deemed to have received payments on the Mortgage Loans when the Subservicer receives such payments. Section 3.09 Collection of Taxes, Assessments and Similar Items; Escrow Accounts. (a) Each Servicer shall enforce the obligations under each paid-in-full, life-of-the-loan tax service contract in effect with respect to each First Lien Mortgage Loan (each, a "Tax Service Contract") serviced by such Servicer. Each Tax Service Contract shall be assigned to the Trustee, or a successor servicer at the applicable Servicer's expense in the event that a Servicer is terminated as Servicer of the related Mortgage Loan. (b) To the extent that the services described in this paragraph (b) are not otherwise provided pursuant to the Tax Service Contracts described in paragraph (a) above, each Servicer undertakes to perform such functions with respect to the Mortgage Loans serviced by such Servicer. To the extent the related Mortgage provides for Escrow Payments, the related Servicer shall establish and maintain, or cause to be established and maintained, one or more segregated accounts (the "Escrow Accounts"), which shall be Eligible Accounts. Each Servicer shall deposit in the clearing account (which account must be an Eligible Account) in which it customarily deposits payments and collections on mortgage loans in connection with its mortgage loan servicing activities on a daily basis, and in no event more than one Business Day after such Servicer's receipt thereof, all collections from the Mortgagors (or related advances from Subservicers) for the payment of taxes, assessments, hazard insurance premiums and comparable items for the account of the Mortgagors ("Escrow Payments") collected on account of the Mortgage Loans and shall thereafter deposit such Escrow Payments in the Escrow Accounts, in no event more than two Business Days after the deposit of such funds in the clearing account, for the purpose of effecting the payment of any such items as required under the terms of this Agreement. Withdrawals of amounts from an Escrow Account may be made only to (i) effect payment of taxes, assessments, hazard insurance premiums, and comparable items; (ii) reimburse such Servicer (or a Subservicer to the extent provided in the related Subservicing Agreement) out of related collections for any advances made pursuant to Section 3.01 (with respect to taxes and assessments) and Section 3.13 (with respect to hazard insurance); (iii) refund to Mortgagors any sums as may be determined to be overages; (iv) pay interest, if required and as described below, to Mortgagors on balances in the Escrow Account; (v) clear and terminate the Escrow Account at the termination of such Servicer's obligations and responsibilities in respect of the Mortgage Loans under this Agreement; (vi) to transfer such funds to a replacement Escrow Account that meets the requirements hereof; or (vii) recover amounts deposited in error. As part of its servicing duties, each Servicer or Subservicers shall pay to the Mortgagors interest on funds in Escrow Accounts, to the extent required by law and, to the extent that interest earned on funds in the Escrow Accounts is insufficient, to pay such interest from its or their own funds, without any reimbursement therefor. To the extent that a Mortgage does not provide for Escrow Payments, the applicable Servicer shall determine whether any such payments are made by the Mortgagor in a manner and at a time that avoids the loss of the Mortgaged Property due to a tax sale or the foreclosure of a tax lien. The applicable Servicer assumes full responsibility for the payment of all such bills within such time and shall effect payments of all such bills irrespective of the Mortgagor's faithful performance in the payment of same or the making of the Escrow Payments and shall make advances from its own funds to effect such payments; provided, however, that such advances are deemed to be Servicing Advances. Section 3.10 Collection Accounts. (a) On behalf of the Trustee, each Servicer shall establish and maintain, or cause to be established and maintained, one or more separate Eligible Accounts (each such account or accounts, a "Collection Account"), held in trust for the benefit of the Trustee. On behalf of the Trustee, each Servicer shall deposit or cause to be deposited in the clearing account (which account must be an Eligible Account) in which it customarily deposits payments and collections on mortgage loans in connection with its mortgage loan servicing activities on a daily basis, and in no event more than one Business Day after such Servicer's receipt thereof, and shall thereafter deposit in the related Collection Account, in no event more than two Business Days after the deposit of such funds into the clearing account, as and when received or as otherwise required hereunder, the following payments and collections received or made by it subsequent to the Cut-off Date (other than in respect of principal or interest on the related Mortgage Loans due on or before the Cut-off Date), or payments (other than Principal Prepayments) received by it on or prior to the Cut-off Date but allocable to a Due Period subsequent thereto: (i) all payments on account of principal, including Principal Prepayments, on the Mortgage Loans; (ii) all payments on account of interest (net of the related Servicing Fee) on each Mortgage Loan; (iii) all Insurance Proceeds and Condemnation Proceeds to the extent such Insurance Proceeds and Condemnation Proceeds are not to be applied to the restoration of the related Mortgaged Property or released to the related Mortgagor in accordance with the express requirements of law or in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices and Liquidation Proceeds; (iv) any amounts required to be deposited pursuant to Section 3.12 in connection with any losses realized on Permitted Investments with respect to funds held in the related Collection Account; (v) any amounts required to be deposited by such Servicer pursuant to the second paragraph of Section 3.13(a) in respect of any blanket policy deductibles; (vi) all proceeds of any Mortgage Loan repurchased or purchased in accordance with this Agreement; and (vii) all Prepayment Charges collected or paid (pursuant to Section 3.07(a)) by such Servicer. The foregoing requirements for deposit in the Collection Accounts shall be exclusive, it being understood and agreed that, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, payments in the nature of late payment charges, NSF fees, reconveyance fees, assumption fees and other similar fees and charges need not be deposited by each Servicer in the related Collection Account and shall, upon collection, belong to the applicable Servicer as additional compensation for its servicing activities. In the event a Servicer shall deposit in the related Collection Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time withdraw such amount from its Collection Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. (b) Funds in the Collection Accounts may be invested in Permitted Investments in accordance with the provisions set forth in Section 3.12. Each Servicer shall give notice to the Securities Administrator of the location of the related Collection Account maintained by it when established and prior to any change thereof in accordance with Section 3.07(f). Section 3.11 Withdrawals from the Collection Accounts. (a) Each Servicer shall, from time to time, make withdrawals from the related Collection Account for any of the following purposes or as described in Section 4.01: (i) on or prior to each Remittance Date, to remit to the Securities Administrator all Available Funds (without reduction for amounts owed to the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee or the Custodians as provided for in the definition of "Available Funds") in respect of the related Distribution Date together with all amounts representing Prepayment Charges from the Mortgage Loans received by the applicable Servicer during the related Prepayment Period; (ii) to reimburse such Servicer for P&I Advances, but only to the extent of amounts received which represent Late Collections (net of the related Servicing Fees) of Scheduled Payments on Mortgage Loans with respect to which such P&I Advances were made in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.01 (such Servicer's right for recovery or reimbursement has priority over the Trust as stated in the definition of "Available Funds"); (iii) to pay such Servicer or any Subservicer (a) any unpaid Servicing Fees or (b) any unreimbursed Servicing Advances with respect to each Mortgage Loan serviced by such Servicer or Subservicer, but only to the extent of any Late Collections, Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds or other amounts as may be collected by such Servicer from a Mortgagor, or otherwise received with respect to such Mortgage Loan (or the related REO Property) (such Servicer's right for recovery or reimbursement has priority over the Trust as stated in the definition of "Available Funds"); (iv) to pay to such Servicer as servicing compensation (in addition to the Servicing Fee) on each Remittance Date any interest or investment income earned on funds deposited in its Collection Account; (v) to pay to the applicable Responsible Party or the Depositor, as applicable, with respect to each Mortgage Loan that has previously been repurchased or replaced pursuant to this Agreement, all amounts received thereon subsequent to the date of purchase or substitution, as further described herein; (vi) to reimburse such Servicer for (A) any P&I Advance or Servicing Advance previously made which such Servicer has determined to be a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance or Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.01 and (B) any unpaid Servicing Fees related to any Second Lien Mortgage Loan to the extent not recoverable from Liquidation Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds or other amounts received with respect to the related Second Lien Mortgage Loan under Section 3.11(a)(iii) (such Servicer's right for recovery or reimbursement has priority over the Trust as stated in the definition of "Available Funds"); (vii) to pay, or to reimburse such Servicer for advances in respect of, expenses incurred in connection with any Mortgage Loan serviced by such Servicer pursuant to Section 3.15 (such Servicer's right for recovery or reimbursement has priority over the Trust); (viii) to reimburse such Servicer or the Depositor for expenses incurred by or reimbursable to such Servicer or the Depositor, as the case may be, pursuant to Section 6.03 (such Servicer's right for recovery or reimbursement has priority over the Trust as stated in the definition of "Available Funds"); (ix) to reimburse such Servicer or the Trustee, as the case may be, for expenses reasonably incurred in respect of the breach or defect giving rise to the repurchase obligation of any Responsible Party or the Depositor, as applicable, that were included in the Repurchase Price of the Mortgage Loan, including any expenses arising out of the enforcement of the repurchase obligation, to the extent not otherwise paid pursuant to the terms hereof (such Servicer's right for recovery or reimbursement has priority over the Trust as stated in the definition of "Available Funds"); (x) to withdraw any amounts deposited in the related Collection Account in error; (xi) to withdraw any amounts held in the related Collection Account and not required to be remitted to the Securities Administrator on the Remittance Date occurring in the month in which such amounts are deposited into such Collection Account, to reimburse such Servicer for unreimbursed P&I Advances; (xii) to invest funds in Permitted Investments in accordance with Section 3.12; and (xiii) to clear and terminate the related Collection Account upon termination of this Agreement. (b) Each Servicer shall keep and maintain separate accounting, on a Mortgage Loan by Mortgage Loan basis, for the purpose of justifying any withdrawal from the related Collection Account, to the extent held by or on behalf of it, pursuant to subclauses (a)(ii), (iii), (v), (vi), (vii), (viii) and (ix) above. Each Servicer shall provide written notification (as set forth in Section 4.01(d)) to the Securities Administrator, on or prior to the next succeeding Remittance Date, upon making any withdrawals from the related Collection Account pursuant to subclause (a)(vi) above. (c) Each Servicer shall be responsible for reviewing and reconciling the applicable Collection Account in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices. Each Servicer shall act promptly to resolve any discrepancies. Section 3.12 Investment of Funds in the Collection Accounts and the Distribution Account. (a) Each Servicer may invest the funds in the related Collection Account and the related Escrow Account (to the extent permitted by law and the related Mortgage Loan documents) and the Securities Administrator may (but is not obligated to) invest funds in the Distribution Account during the Securities Administrator Float Period, and, with respect to the portion of funds in the Distribution Account deposited by a Servicer, shall (except during the Securities Administrator Float Period) invest such funds in the Distribution Account at the direction of such Servicer in the Wells Fargo Advantage Prime Investments Money Market Fund (for purposes of this Section 3.12, such Account is referred to as the "Investment Account"). All such Permitted Investments shall be held to maturity, unless payable on demand. Any investment of funds in an Investment Account (other than investments made during the Securities Administrator Float Period) shall be made in the name of the Securities Administrator in Permitted Investments selected by the applicable Servicer. The applicable Servicer shall be entitled to the income from (except with respect to investment direction of funds and any income and gain realized on any investment in the Distribution Account during the Securities Administrator Float Period, which shall be for the sole benefit of the Securities Administrator) such related investment, and any certificate or other instrument evidencing any such investment shall be delivered directly to the applicable Servicer, or with respect to investments during the Securities Administrator Float Period, the Securities Administrator or its agent (with a copy to the Securities Administrator or its agent if related to investment of funds in the Distribution Account not during the Securities Administrator Float Period), together with any document of transfer necessary to transfer title to such investment to the applicable Servicer, or with respect to investments during the Securities Administrator Float Period, the Securities Administrator or its agent. In the event amounts on deposit in an Investment Account are at any time invested in a Permitted Investment payable on demand, the applicable Servicer, or with respect to investments during the Securities Administrator Float Period, the Securities Administrator may: (x) consistent with any notice required to be given thereunder, demand that payment thereon be made on the last day such Permitted Investment may otherwise mature hereunder in an amount equal to the lesser of (1) all amounts then payable thereunder and (2) the amount required to be withdrawn on such date; and (y) demand payment of all amounts due thereunder that such Permitted Investment would not constitute a Permitted Investment in respect of funds thereafter on deposit in an Investment Account. (b) All income and gain realized from the investment of funds deposited in the related Collection Account or Escrow Account held by or on behalf of the related Servicer, shall be for the benefit of such Servicer and shall be subject to its withdrawal in the manner set forth in Section 3.11. Such Servicer shall deposit in its Collection Account or Escrow Account, as applicable, the amount of any loss of principal incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment made with funds in such accounts immediately upon realization of such loss. (c) All income and gain realized from the investment of the portion of funds deposited in the Distribution Account by a Servicer and held by the Securities Administrator, shall be for the benefit of such Servicer (except for any income or gain realized from the investment of funds on deposit in the Distribution Account during the Securities Administrator Float Period, which shall be for the benefit of the Securities Administrator) and shall be subject to the Securities Administrator's withdrawal in the manner set forth in Section 3.07(e). Each Servicer shall deposit in the Distribution Account (except with respect to losses incurred during the Securities Administrator Float Period) the amount of any loss of principal incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment made with funds in such accounts immediately upon realization of such loss. (d) Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, if any default occurs in the making of a payment due under any Permitted Investment, or if a default occurs in any other performance required under any Permitted Investment, the Securities Administrator shall take such action as may be appropriate to enforce such payment or performance, including the institution and prosecution of appropriate proceedings. (e) The Securities Administrator shall not be liable for the amount of any loss incurred with respect of any investment or lack of investment of funds held in any Investment Account or the Distribution Account (except that if any losses are incurred from the investment of funds deposited in the Distribution Account during the Securities Administrator Float Period, the Securities Administrator shall be responsible for reimbursing the Trust for such loss immediately upon realization of such loss) if made in accordance with this Section 3.12. (f) The Securities Administrator or its Affiliates shall be permitted to receive additional compensation that could be deemed to be in the Securities Administrator's economic self-interest for (i) serving as investment adviser, administrator, shareholder, servicing agent, custodian or sub-custodian with respect to certain of the Permitted Investments, (ii) using Affiliates to effect transactions in certain Permitted Investments and (iii) effecting transactions in certain Permitted Investments. Such compensation shall not be considered an amount that is reimbursable or payable pursuant to this Agreement. Section 3.13 Maintenance of Hazard Insurance and Errors and Omissions and Fidelity Coverage. (a) Each Servicer shall cause to be maintained for each Mortgage Loan serviced by such Servicer fire insurance with extended coverage on the related Mortgaged Property in an amount which is at least equal to the least of (i) the outstanding principal balance of such Mortgage Loan, (ii) the amount necessary to fully compensate for any damage or loss to the improvements that are a part of such property on a replacement cost basis and (iii) the maximum insurable value of the improvements which are a part of such Mortgaged Property, in each case in an amount not less than such amount as is necessary to avoid the application of any coinsurance clause contained in the related hazard insurance policy. Each Servicer shall also cause to be maintained fire insurance with extended coverage on each REO Property serviced by such Servicer in an amount which is at least equal to the lesser of (i) the maximum insurable value of the improvements which are a part of such property and (ii) the outstanding principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan at the time it became an REO Property. Each Servicer will comply in the performance of this Agreement with all reasonable rules and requirements of each insurer under any such hazard policies. Any amounts to be collected by any Servicer under any such policies (other than amounts to be applied to the restoration or repair of the property subject to the related Mortgage or amounts to be released to the Mortgagor in accordance with the procedures that such Servicer would follow in servicing loans held for its own account, subject to the terms and conditions of the related Mortgage and Mortgage Note) shall be deposited in the related Collection Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 3.11. Any cost incurred by any Servicer in maintaining any such insurance shall not, for the purpose of calculating distributions to the Securities Administrator, be added to the unpaid principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan, notwithstanding that the terms of such Mortgage Loan so permit. It is understood and agreed that no earthquake or other additional insurance is to be required of any Mortgagor other than pursuant to the applicable laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force and as shall require such additional insurance. If the Mortgaged Property or REO Property is at any time in an area identified in the Federal Register by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as having special flood hazards and flood insurance has been made available, the applicable Servicer will cause to be maintained a flood insurance policy in respect thereof. Such flood insurance shall be in an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the amount necessary to fully compensate for any damage or loss to the improvements that are a part of such property on a replacement cost basis and (ii) the maximum amount of such insurance available for the related Mortgaged Property under the national flood insurance program (assuming that the area in which such Mortgaged Property is located is participating in such program). In the event that any Servicer shall obtain and maintain a blanket policy with an insurer either (i) acceptable to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac or (ii) having a General Policy Rating of B:III or better from Best's (or such other rating that is comparable to such rating) insuring against hazard losses on all of the Mortgage Loans, it shall conclusively be deemed to have satisfied its obligations as set forth in the first two sentences of this Section 3.13, it being understood and agreed that such policy may contain a deductible clause, in which case such Servicer shall, in the event that there shall not have been maintained on the related Mortgaged Property or REO Property a policy complying with the first two sentences of this Section 3.13, and there shall have been one or more losses which would have been covered by such policy, deposit to the related Collection Account from its own funds the amount not otherwise payable under the blanket policy because of such deductible clause. In connection with its activities as administrator and servicer of the Mortgage Loans, each Servicer agrees to prepare and present, on behalf of itself and the Trustee claims under any such blanket policy in a timely fashion in accordance with the terms of such policy. (b) Each Servicer shall keep in force during the term of this Agreement a policy or policies of insurance covering errors and omissions for failure in the performance of such Servicer's obligations under this Agreement, which policy or policies shall be in such form and amount that would meet the requirements of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac if it were the purchaser of the Mortgage Loans, unless such Servicer has obtained a waiver of such requirements from Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Each Servicer shall also maintain a fidelity bond in the form and amount that would meet the requirements of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, unless such Servicer has obtained a waiver of such requirements from Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Each Servicer shall provide the Trustee upon request with copies of any such insurance policies and fidelity bond. Each Servicer shall be deemed to have complied with this provision if an Affiliate of the applicable Servicer has such errors and omissions and fidelity bond coverage and, by the terms of such insurance policy or fidelity bond, the coverage afforded thereunder extends to such Servicer. Any such errors and omissions policy and fidelity bond shall by its terms not be cancelable without thirty days' prior written notice to the Trustee. Each Servicer shall also cause each Subservicer to maintain a policy of insurance covering errors and omissions and a fidelity bond which would meet such requirements. Section 3.14 Enforcement of Due-on-Sale Clauses; Assumption Agreements. Each Servicer will, to the extent it has knowledge of any conveyance or prospective conveyance of any Mortgaged Property by any Mortgagor (whether by absolute conveyance or by contract of sale, and whether or not the Mortgagor remains or is to remain liable under the Mortgage Note and/or the Mortgage), exercise its rights to accelerate the maturity of such Mortgage Loan under the "Due-on-Sale" clause, if any, applicable thereto; provided, however, that no Servicer shall be required to take such action if, in its sole business judgment, such Servicer believes it is not in the best interests of the Trust Fund and shall not exercise any such rights if prohibited by law from doing so. If a Servicer reasonably believes it is unable under applicable law to enforce such "Due-on-Sale" clause or if any of the other conditions set forth in the proviso to the preceding sentence apply, such Servicer will enter into an assumption and modification agreement from or with the person to whom such property has been conveyed or is proposed to be conveyed, pursuant to which such person becomes liable under the Mortgage Note and, to the extent permitted by applicable state law, the Mortgagor remains liable thereon. Each Servicer is also authorized to enter into a substitution of liability agreement with such person, pursuant to which the original Mortgagor is released from liability and such person is substituted as the Mortgagor and becomes liable under the Mortgage Note; provided, that no such substitution shall be effective unless such person satisfies the underwriting criteria of such Servicer and such substitution is in the best interest of the Certificateholders as determined by such Servicer. In connection with any assumption, modification or substitution, such Servicer shall apply such underwriting standards and follow such practices and procedures as shall be normal and usual in its general mortgage servicing activities and as it applies to other mortgage loans owned solely by it. No Servicer shall take or enter into any assumption and modification agreement, however, unless (to the extent practicable in the circumstances) it shall have received confirmation, in writing, of the continued effectiveness of any applicable hazard insurance policy, or a new policy meeting the requirements of this Section is obtained. Any fee collected by a Servicer in respect of an assumption or substitution of liability agreement will be retained by such Servicer as additional servicing compensation. In connection with any such assumption, no material term of the Mortgage Note (including but not limited to the related Mortgage Rate and the amount of the Scheduled Payment) may be amended or modified, except as otherwise required pursuant to the terms thereof. Each Servicer shall notify the Trustee that any such substitution, modification or assumption agreement has been completed and shall forward to the applicable Custodian the executed original of such substitution or assumption agreement, which document shall be added to the related Mortgage File and shall, for all purposes, be considered a part of such Mortgage File to the same extent as all other documents and instruments constituting a part thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph or any other provision of this Agreement, a Servicer shall not be deemed to be in default, breach or any other violation of its obligations hereunder by reason of any assumption of a Mortgage Loan by operation of law or by the terms of the Mortgage Note or any assumption which such Servicer may be restricted by law from preventing, for any reason whatsoever. For purposes of this Section 3.14, the term "assumption" is deemed to also include a sale (of the Mortgaged Property) subject to the Mortgage that is not accompanied by an assumption or substitution of liability agreement. Section 3.15 Realization upon Defaulted Mortgage Loans. Each Servicer shall use its best efforts, consistent with Accepted Servicing Practices, to foreclose upon or otherwise comparably convert (which may include an acquisition of REO Property) the ownership of properties securing such of the Mortgage Loans as come into and continue in default and as to which no satisfactory arrangements can be made for collection of delinquent payments pursuant to Section 3.07, and which are not released from this Agreement pursuant to any other provision hereof. Each Servicer shall use reasonable efforts to realize upon such defaulted Mortgage Loans in such manner as will maximize the receipt of principal and interest by the Securities Administrator, taking into account, among other things, the timing of foreclosure proceedings; provided, however, with respect to any Second Lien Mortgage Loan for which the related first lien mortgage loan is not included in the Trust Fund, if, after such Mortgage Loan becomes 180 days or more delinquent, the applicable Servicer determines that a significant net recovery is not possible through foreclosure, such Mortgage Loan may be charged off and the Mortgage Loan will be treated as a Liquidated Mortgage Loan giving rise to a Realized Loss. The foregoing is subject to the provisions that, in any case in which Mortgaged Property shall have suffered damage from an uninsured cause, a Servicer shall not be required to expend its own funds toward the restoration of such property unless it shall determine in its sole discretion (i) that such restoration will increase the net proceeds of liquidation of the related Mortgage Loan to the Securities Administrator, after reimbursement to itself for such expenses, and (ii) that such expenses will be recoverable by such Servicer through Insurance Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds or Liquidation Proceeds from the related Mortgaged Property, as contemplated in Section 3.11. Each Servicer shall be responsible for all other costs and expenses incurred by it in any such proceedings; provided, however, that it shall be entitled to reimbursement thereof from the related property, as contemplated in Section 3.11. The proceeds of any liquidation or REO Disposition, as well as any recovery resulting from a partial collection of Insurance Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds or Liquidation Proceeds or any income from an REO Property, will be applied in the following order of priority: first, to reimburse the applicable Servicer or any Subservicer for any related unreimbursed Servicing Advances, pursuant to Section 3.11 or 3.17; second, to reimburse the applicable Servicer for any related unreimbursed P&I Advances, pursuant to Section 3.11; third, to accrued and unpaid interest on the Mortgage Loan or REO Imputed Interest, at the Mortgage Rate, to the date of the liquidation or REO Disposition, or to the Due Date prior to the Remittance Date on which such amounts are to be distributed if not in connection with a liquidation or REO Disposition; and fourth, as a recovery of principal of the Mortgage Loan. If the amount of the recovery so allocated to interest is less than a full recovery thereof, that amount will be allocated as follows: first, to unpaid Servicing Fees; and second, as interest at the Mortgage Rate (net of the Servicing Fee Rate). The portion of the recovery so allocated to unpaid Servicing Fees shall be reimbursed to the applicable Servicer or any Subservicer pursuant to Section 3.11 or 3.17. The portions of the recovery so allocated to interest at the Mortgage Rate (net of the Servicing Fee Rate) and to principal of the Mortgage Loan shall be applied as follows: first, to reimburse the applicable Servicer or any Subservicer for any related unreimbursed Servicing Advances in accordance with Section 3.11 or 3.17, and second, to the Securities Administrator in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.02, subject to the last paragraph of Section 3.17(f) with respect to certain excess recoveries from an REO Disposition. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in connection with a foreclosure or acceptance of a deed in lieu of foreclosure, in the event a Servicer has received actual notice of, or has actual knowledge of the presence of, hazardous or toxic substances or wastes on the related Mortgaged Property, or if the Trustee otherwise requests, such Servicer shall cause an environmental inspection or review of such Mortgaged Property to be conducted by a qualified inspector. Upon completion of the inspection, such Servicer shall promptly provide the Trustee and the Depositor with a written report of the environmental inspection. After reviewing the environmental inspection report, the applicable Servicer shall determine consistent with Accepted Servicing Practices how such Servicer shall proceed with respect to the Mortgaged Property. In the event (a) the environmental inspection report indicates that the Mortgaged Property is contaminated by hazardous or toxic substances or wastes and (b) the applicable Servicer determines, consistent with Accepted Servicing Practices, to proceed with foreclosure or acceptance of a deed in lieu of foreclosure, such Servicer shall be reimbursed for all reasonable costs associated with such foreclosure or acceptance of a deed in lieu of foreclosure and any related environmental clean-up costs, as applicable, from the related Liquidation Proceeds, or if the Liquidation Proceeds are insufficient to fully reimburse such Servicer, such Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed from amounts in the related Collection Account pursuant to Section 3.11. In the event the applicable Servicer determines not to proceed with foreclosure or acceptance of a deed in lieu of foreclosure, such Servicer shall be reimbursed from general collections for all Servicing Advances made with respect to the related Mortgaged Property from the related Collection Account pursuant to Section 3.11. The Trustee shall not be responsible for any determination made by the applicable Servicer pursuant to this paragraph or otherwise. In the event Wells Fargo or HomEq elects to charge-off a Second Lien Mortgage Loan 180 days or more delinquent pursuant to this Section 3.15, no Second Lien Mortgage Loan shall be characterized as a Liquidated Mortgage Loan, unless the Depositor consents in writing to such characterization after Wells Fargo or HomEq, as applicable, has provided the Depositor with a combined equity analysis of such Second Lien Mortgage Loan and the related first lien mortgage loan; provided, that if the Depositor has failed to notify Wells Fargo or HomEq, as applicable, within 3 Business Days of receipt of such combined equity analysis, then the Depositor shall be deemed to have consented to such characterization. In the event Wells Fargo or HomEq elects to charge off a Second Lien Mortgage Loan 180 days or more delinquent pursuant to this Section 3.15, Wells Fargo or HomEq, as applicable, shall notify the Securities Administrator of such election, which notice may be provided in a Servicer Remittance Report delivered pursuant to Section 4.03(d). JPMorgan may elect to charge-off a Second Lien Mortgage Loan pursuant to this Section 3.15 without such written consent, so long as such Second Lien Mortgage Loan is 180 days or more delinquent. JPMorgan shall notify the Securities Administrator of such election, which notice may be provided in a Servicer Remittance Report delivered pursuant to Section 4.03(d). Section 3.16 Release of Mortgage Files. (a) Upon the payment in full of any Mortgage Loan, or the receipt by a Servicer of a notification that payment in full shall be escrowed in a manner customary for such purposes, such Servicer will, on or before the last day of the month in which such payment in full occurs, notify the applicable Custodian by a certification (which certification shall include a statement to the effect that all amounts received or to be received in connection with such payment which are required to be deposited in the related Collection Account pursuant to Section 3.10 have been or will be so deposited) of a Servicing Officer and shall request delivery to it of the Custodial File by submitting a Request for Release (in writing or an electronic format acceptable to the Custodian) to the Custodian. Upon receipt of such certification and Request for Release, such Custodian shall promptly release the related Custodial File to such Servicer within two (2) Business Days. No expenses incurred in connection with any instrument of satisfaction or deed of reconveyance shall be chargeable to the related Collection Account or to the Trustee. (b) From time to time and as appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of any Mortgage Loan, including, for this purpose, collection under any Insurance Policy relating to the Mortgage Loans, the applicable Custodian shall, upon request of a Servicer and delivery to such Custodian of a Request for Release in written or electronic form, release the related Custodial File to such Servicer, and the Trustee shall, at the direction of such Servicer, execute such documents as shall be necessary to the prosecution of any such proceedings and such Servicer shall retain the Mortgage File in trust for the benefit of the Trustee. Such Request for Release shall obligate the applicable Servicer to return each and every document previously requested from the Custodial File to such Custodian when the need therefor by such Servicer no longer exists, unless the Mortgage Loan has been charged off or liquidated and the Liquidation Proceeds relating to the Mortgage Loan have been deposited in the related Collection Account or the Mortgage File or such document has been delivered to an attorney, or to a public trustee or other public official as required by law, for purposes of initiating or pursuing legal action or other proceedings for the foreclosure of the Mortgaged Property either judicially or non judicially, and such Servicer has delivered to the applicable Custodian a certificate of a Servicing Officer certifying as to the name and address of the Person to which such Mortgage File or such document was delivered and the purpose or purposes of such delivery. Upon receipt of a certificate of a Servicing Officer stating that such Mortgage Loan was charged off or liquidated and that all amounts received or to be received in connection with such liquidation that are required to be deposited into the related Collection Account have been so deposited, or that such Mortgage Loan has become an REO Property, a copy of the Request for Release shall be released by the applicable Custodian to the applicable Servicer or its designee upon request therefor. Upon receipt of a Request for Release under this Section 3.16, the applicable Custodian shall deliver the related Custodial File to the requesting Servicer; provided, however, that in the event a Servicer has not previously received copies of the relevant Mortgage Loan Documents necessary to service the related Mortgage Loan in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, the applicable Responsible Party shall reimburse the applicable Custodian for any overnight courier charges incurred for the requested Custodial Files. Upon written certification of a Servicing Officer, the Trustee shall execute and deliver to the applicable Servicer copies of any court pleadings, requests for trustee's sale or other documents reasonably necessary to the foreclosure or trustee's sale in respect of a Mortgaged Property or to any legal action brought to obtain judgment against any Mortgagor on the Mortgage Note or Mortgage or to obtain a deficiency judgment, or to enforce any other remedies or rights provided by the Mortgage Note or Mortgage or otherwise available at law or in equity, or shall exercise and deliver to such Servicer a power of attorney sufficient to authorize such Servicer to execute such documents on its behalf. Each such certification shall include a request that such pleadings or documents be executed by the Trustee and a statement as to the reason such documents or pleadings are required and that the execution and delivery thereof by the Trustee will not invalidate or otherwise affect the lien of the Mortgage, except for the termination of such a lien upon completion of the foreclosure or trustee's sale. Section 3.17 Title, Conservation and Disposition of REO Property. (a) This Section shall apply only to REO Properties acquired for the account of the Trustee and shall not apply to any REO Property relating to a Mortgage Loan which was purchased or repurchased from the Trustee pursuant to any provision hereof. In the event that title to any such REO Property is acquired, the applicable Servicer shall cause the deed or certificate of sale to be issued in the name of the Trustee, on behalf of the Certificateholders. Upon written request by the applicable Servicer, the Trustee shall provide such Servicer with a power of attorney prepared by such Servicer with respect to such REO Property in the form of Exhibit Q. (b) Each Servicer shall manage, conserve, protect and operate each related REO Property for the Trustee solely for the purpose of its prompt disposition and sale. Each Servicer, either itself or through an agent selected by such Servicer, shall manage, conserve, protect and operate the REO Property in the same manner that it manages, conserves, protects and operates other foreclosed property for its own account, and in the same manner that similar property in the same locality as the REO Property is managed. Each Servicer shall attempt to sell the same (and may temporarily rent the same for a period not greater than one year, except as otherwise provided below) on such terms and conditions as such Servicer deems to be in the best interest of the Trustee. The Trustee shall have no obligations with respect to any REO Dispositions. (c) Each Servicer shall segregate and hold all funds collected and received in connection with the operation of any REO Property separate and apart from its own funds and general assets and shall deposit such funds in the related Collection Account. (d) Each Servicer shall deposit net of reimbursement to such Servicer for any related outstanding Servicing Advances and unpaid Servicing Fees provided in Section 3.11, or cause to be deposited, in no event more than two (2) Business Days following such Servicer's receipt thereof, in the related Collection Account all revenues received with respect to the related REO Property and shall withdraw therefrom funds necessary for the proper operation, management and maintenance of the REO Property. (e) Each Servicer, upon an REO Disposition, shall be entitled to reimbursement for any related unreimbursed Servicing Advances as well as any unpaid Servicing Fees from proceeds received in connection with the REO Disposition, as further provided in Section 3.11. (f) Any net proceeds from an REO Disposition which are in excess of the unpaid principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan, plus all unpaid REO Imputed Interest thereon through the date of the REO Disposition, shall be retained by the applicable Servicer as additional servicing compensation. (g) Each Servicer shall use its reasonable best efforts, to sell, or cause its Subservicer to sell, in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, any REO Property serviced by such Servicer or Subservicer as soon as possible, but in no event later than the conclusion of the third calendar year beginning after the year of its acquisition by Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 unless (i) such Servicer applies for and receives an extension of such period from the Internal Revenue Service pursuant to the REMIC Provisions and Code Section 856(e)(3), in which event such REO Property shall be sold within the applicable extension period, or (ii) such Servicer obtains for the Trustee and the Securities Administrator an Opinion of Counsel, addressed to the Depositor, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator and such Servicer, to the effect that the holding by the Pooling Tier REMIC 1 of such REO Property subsequent to such period will not result in the imposition of taxes on "prohibited transactions" as defined in Section 860F of the Code or cause any Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC under the REMIC Provisions or comparable provisions of relevant state laws at any time. Each Servicer shall manage, conserve, protect and operate each REO Property serviced by such Servicer for the Trustee solely for the purpose of its prompt disposition and sale in a manner which does not cause such REO Property to fail to qualify as "foreclosure property" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) or result in the receipt by the Pooling Tier REMIC 1 of any "income from non permitted assets" within the meaning of Section 860F(a)(2)(B) of the Code or any "net income from foreclosure property" which is subject to taxation under Section 860G(a)(1) of the Code. Pursuant to its efforts to sell such REO Property, the applicable Servicer shall either itself or through an agent selected by such Servicer protect and conserve such REO Property in the same manner and to such extent as is customary in the locality where such REO Property is located and may, incident to its conservation and protection of the interests of the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders, rent the same, or any part thereof, as such Servicer deems to be in the best interest of the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders for the period prior to the sale of such REO Property; provided, however, that any rent received or accrued with respect to such REO Property qualifies as "rents from real property" as defined in Section 856(d) of the Code. Section 3.18 Notification of Adjustments. With respect to each Adjustable Rate Mortgage Loan, the applicable Servicer shall adjust the Mortgage Rate on the related Adjustment Date and shall adjust the Scheduled Payment on the related mortgage payment adjustment date, if applicable, in compliance with the requirements of applicable law and the related Mortgage and Mortgage Note. In the event that an Index becomes unavailable or otherwise unpublished, the related Servicer shall select a comparable alternative index over which it has no direct control and which is readily verifiable. Each Servicer shall execute and deliver any and all necessary notices required under applicable law and the terms of the related Mortgage Note and Mortgage regarding the Mortgage Rate and Scheduled Payment adjustments. Each Servicer shall promptly, upon written request therefor, deliver to the Securities Administrator such notifications and any additional applicable data regarding such adjustments and the methods used to calculate and implement such adjustments. Upon the discovery by a Servicer or the receipt of notice from the Securities Administrator that a Servicer has failed to adjust a Mortgage Rate or Scheduled Payment in accordance with the terms of the related Mortgage Note, such Servicer shall deposit in the related Collection Account from its own funds the amount of any interest loss caused as such interest loss occurs. Section 3.19 Access to Certain Documentation and Information Regarding the Mortgage Loans. The applicable Servicer shall provide, or cause the Subservicer to provide, to the Depositor, the Trustee, the OTS or the FDIC and the examiners and supervisory agents thereof, access to the documentation regarding the Mortgage Loans in its possession required by applicable regulations of the OTS. Such access shall be afforded without charge, but only upon five (5) Business Days' prior written request and during normal business hours at the offices of the applicable Servicer or any Subservicer. Nothing in this Section shall derogate from the obligation of any such party to observe any applicable law prohibiting disclosure of information regarding the Mortgagors and the failure of any such party to provide access as provided in this Section as a result of such obligation shall not constitute a breach of this Section. Section 3.20 Documents, Records and Funds in Possession of the Servicers to Be Held for the Trustee. Each Servicer shall account fully to the Securities Administrator for any funds received by such Servicer or which otherwise are collected by such Servicer as Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds in respect of any Mortgage Loan serviced by such Servicer. All Mortgage Files and funds collected or held by, or under the control of, a Servicer in respect of any Mortgage Loans, whether from the collection of principal and interest payments or from Liquidation Proceeds, including, but not limited to, any funds on deposit in its Collection Account, shall be held by such Servicer for and on behalf of the Trustee and shall be and remain the sole and exclusive property of the Trustee, subject to the applicable provisions of this Agreement. Each Servicer also agrees that it shall not create, incur or subject any Mortgage File or any funds that are deposited in any Collection Account, the Distribution Account or any Escrow Account, or any funds that otherwise are or may become due or payable to the Securities Administrator for the benefit of the Certificateholders, to any claim, lien, security interest, judgment, levy, writ of attachment or other encumbrance, or assert by legal action or otherwise any claim or right of setoff against any Mortgage File or any funds collected on, or in connection with, a Mortgage Loan, except, however, that such Servicer shall be entitled to set off against and deduct from any such funds any amounts that are properly due and payable to such Servicer under this Agreement. Section 3.21 Servicing Compensation. (a) As compensation for its activities hereunder, each Servicer shall, with respect to each Mortgage Loan serviced by it, be entitled to retain from deposits to its Collection Account and from Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds and REO Proceeds related to such Mortgage Loan, the Servicing Fee with respect to each Mortgage Loan (less any portion of such amounts retained by any Subservicer). In addition, each Servicer shall be entitled to recover unpaid Servicing Fees out of related late collections to the extent permitted in Section 3.11. The right to receive the Servicing Fee may not be transferred in whole or in part except in connection with the transfer of all of a Servicer's responsibilities and obligations under this Agreement; provided, however, that each Servicer may pay from the Servicing Fee any amounts due to a Subservicer pursuant to a Subservicing Agreement entered into under Section 3.02. (b) Additional servicing compensation in the form of assumption or modification fees, late payment charges, NSF fees, reconveyance fees and other similar fees and charges (other than Prepayment Charges) shall be retained by a Servicer only to the extent such fees or charges are received by such Servicer. Each Servicer shall also be entitled pursuant to Section 3.11(a)(iv) to withdraw from the related Collection Account, and pursuant to Section 3.07(e), to direct the Securities Administrator to withdraw from the Distribution Account and remit to the applicable Servicer (except for monies invested during the Securities Administrator Float Period), as additional servicing compensation, interest or other income earned on the related portions of deposits therein. Each Servicer shall also be entitled, as additional servicing compensation, to interest or other income earned on deposits in the related Escrow Account (to the extent permitted by law and the related Mortgage Loan documents) in accordance with Section 3.12. Each Servicer shall also be entitled to retain net Prepayment Interest Excesses (to the extent not required to offset Prepayment Interest Shortfalls), but only to the extent such amounts are received by such Servicer. (c) Each Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its servicing activities hereunder (including payment of premiums for any blanket policy insuring against hazard losses pursuant to Section 3.13, servicing compensation of the Subservicer to the extent not retained by it and the fees and expenses of independent accountants and any agents appointed by such Servicer), and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor from the Trust Fund except as specifically provided in Section 3.11. Section 3.22 Annual Statement as to Compliance. Each Servicer and the Securities Administrator shall deliver and shall cause each Subservicer engaged by such Servicer or the Securities Administrator, as applicable, to deliver or cause to be delivered to the Securities Administrator (and the Securities Administrator shall deliver or otherwise make available to the Depositor, the Rating Agencies and the Trustee) on or before March 5th of each calendar year, commencing in 2007, an Officer's Certificate stating, as to each signatory thereof, that (i) a review of the activities of the Securities Administrator, such Servicer or Subservicer, as applicable, during the preceding calendar year and of its performance under this Agreement or the applicable Subservicing Agreement, as the case may be, has been made under such officers' supervision, and (ii) to the best of such officers' knowledge, based on such review, the Securities Administrator, such Servicer or Subservicer, as applicable, has fulfilled all of its obligations under this Agreement or the applicable Subservicing Agreement, as the case may be, in all material respects, throughout such year, or, if there has been a default in the fulfillment of any such obligation in any material respect, specifying each such default known to such officers and the nature and status thereof. Promptly after receipt of each such Officer's Certificate, the Depositor shall review each such Officer's Certificate and, if applicable, consult with the Securities Administrator, the applicable Servicer or Subservicer as to the nature of any defaults by the Securities Administrator, such Servicer or any related Subservicer in the fulfillment of any of the Securities Administrator's, such Servicer's or any related Subservicer's obligations. The obligations of the Securities Administrator, each Servicer and each Subservicer under this Section apply to the Securities Administrator, each Servicer and each Subservicer that serviced a Mortgage Loan during the applicable period, whether or not the Securities Administrator, such Servicer or such Subservicer is acting as the Securities Administrator, a Servicer or a Subservicer at the time such Officer's Certificate is required to be delivered. None of the Servicers, the Securities Administrator or any Servicing Function Participant shall be required to cause the delivery of any Officer's Certificate required by this Section until March 10th in any given year so long as it has received written confirmation from the Depositor that a Form 10-K is not required to be filed in respect of the Trust for the preceding calendar year. Section 3.23 Annual Reports on Assessment of Compliance with Servicing Criteria; Annual Independent Public Accountants' Attestation Report.

(xxiv) the amount distributed on the Class X Certificates; (xxv) the amount of any Subsequent Recoveries for such Distribution Date; and (xxvi) the number of Mortgage Loans at the end of the applicable reporting period, the pool factor, and the weighted average interest rate, and weighted average remaining term; In addition, each Form 10-D prepared and filed by the Securities Administrator pursuant to Section 8.12 shall include the following information with respect to the related distribution (to the extent such information is provided by the Trustee to the Securities Administrator): (i) material breaches of Mortgage Loan representations and warranties of which the Securities Administrator has knowledge or has received written notice; and (ii) material breaches of any covenants under this Agreement of which the Securities Administrator has knowledge or received written notice. (b) The Securities Administrator's responsibility for providing the above statement to the Certificateholders, each Rating Agency and the Depositor is limited, if applicable, to the availability, timeliness and accuracy of the information derived from the Servicers and the Swap Provider. The Securities Administrator shall make available the above statement via the Securities Administrator's internet website. The Securities Administrator's website will initially be located at http://www.ctslink.com and assistance in using the website can be obtained by calling the Securities Administrator's customer service desk at (301) 815-6600. Parties that are unable to use the website are entitled to have a paper copy mailed to them via first class mail by calling the customer service desk and indicating such. The Securities Administrator may change the way the monthly statements to Certificateholders are distributed in order to make such distribution more convenient and/or more accessible to the above parties and the Securities Administrator shall provide timely and adequate notification to all above parties regarding any such changes. The Securities Administrator will not be liable for the dissemination of information in accordance with this Agreement. The Securities Administrator shall make available to each Analytics Company, either electronically or via the Securities Administrator's internet website, each statement to Certificateholders prepared pursuant to this Section 4.03(a). The Securities Administrator (and the applicable Servicer, if such discrepancy results from or arises out of any information provided by such Servicer pursuant to this Agreement) shall cooperate in good faith with the Depositor to reconcile any discrepancies in such statements, and the Securities Administrator shall provide any corrections to such statements to each Analytics Company no more than 10 Business Days after such discrepancies have been identified and resolved. The Securities Administrator will also be entitled to rely on but shall not be responsible for the content or accuracy of any information provided by third parties for purposes of preparing the monthly statement to Certificateholders and may affix thereto any disclaimer it deems appropriate in its reasonable discretion (without suggesting liability on the part of any other party hereto). (c) Within a reasonable period of time after the end of each calendar year, the Securities Administrator shall cause to be furnished to each Person who at any time during the calendar year was a Certificateholder, a statement containing the information set forth in clauses (a)(i) and (a)(ii) of this Section 4.03 aggregated for such calendar year or applicable portion thereof during which such Person was a Certificateholder. Such obligation of the Securities Administrator shall be deemed to have been satisfied to the extent that substantially comparable information shall be provided by the Securities Administrator pursuant to any requirements of the Code as from time to time in effect. (d) The Securities Administrator shall be entitled to rely on information provided by third parties for purposes of preparing the foregoing report, but shall not be responsible for the accuracy of such information. (e) Not later than the Determination Date for each Distribution Date (and in the case of JPMorgan, not later than three Busienss Days after the end of the related Prepayment Period in the case of any supplemental reporting of Principal Prepayments made during such Prepayment Period) each Servicer shall furnish to the Securities Administrator, a monthly remittance advice statement (the "Servicer Remittance Report") containing the data fields set forth on Exhibit X attached hereto (in such format mutually agreed upon by such Servicer and the Securities Administrator) such information as shall be reasonably requested (i) by the Depositor to enable the Depositor to disclose "static pool information", as required by Item 1105 of Regulation AB, with respect to the Mortgage Loans, and (ii) by the Securities Administrator to enable the Securities Administrator to provide the reports required by Section 4.03(a) as to the accompanying remittance and applicable Due Period and Prepayment Period to which such remittance relates. The Servicer Remittance Report shall, at a minimum, document, on such Determination Date, Mortgage Loan payment activity on an individual Mortgage Loan basis, as follows: (i) with respect to each Scheduled Payment, the amount of such remittance allocable to principal (including a separate breakdown of any Principal Prepayment, including the date of such prepayment, and any Prepayment Charges, received during the related Prepayment Period along with a detailed report of interest on principal prepayment amounts remitted in accordance with Section 3.25); (ii) with respect to each Scheduled Payment, the amount of such remittance allocable to interest; (iii) the amount of servicing compensation received by such Servicer during the prior distribution period; and (iv) the individual and aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans. (v) the aggregate expenses reimbursed to such Servicer during the prior distribution period pursuant to Section 3.11; and (vi) the number and aggregate outstanding principal balances of Mortgage Loans (a) delinquent 31 to 60 days, 61 to 90 days and 91 or more days; (b) as to which foreclosure or bankruptcy proceedings of the related mortgagor have commenced; and (c) as to which REO Property has been acquired. (f) Notwithstanding anything in Section 4.03(e) to the contrary (other than any supplemental reports of Principal Prepayments by JPMorgan), the Servicers shall be deemed to have satisfied the requirement to timely deliver the Servicer Remittance Report if such report is received by the Securities Administrator and the Depositor on or prior to the 18th calendar day of such month in which the related Determination Date occurs; provided, however, that if such 18th calendar day is a Sunday or a Monday which is not a Business Day, the Servicers shall be deemed to have satisfied the requirement to timely deliver the Servicer Remittance Report if the Securities Administrator and the Depositor receive such report (i) on the next Business Day succeeding such 18th calendar day, or (ii) on the Business Day immediately preceding such 18th calendar day, if such succeeding Business Day is later than the 20th calendar day of such calendar month. (g) For all purposes of this Agreement, with respect to any Mortgage Loan, delinquencies shall be determined by the Securities Administrator from information provided by the Servicers and reported by the Securities Administrator based on the "OTS" methodology for determining delinquencies on mortgage loans similar to the Mortgage Loans. By way of example, a Mortgage Loan would be delinquent with respect to a Scheduled Payment due on a Due Date if such Scheduled Payment is not made by the close of business on the Mortgage Loan's next succeeding Due Date, and a Mortgage Loan would be more than 30-days Delinquent with respect to such Scheduled Payment if such Scheduled Payment were not made by the close of business on the Mortgage Loan's second succeeding Due Date. Each Servicer hereby represents and warrants to the Depositor that such Servicer is not subject to any delinquency recognition policy established by the primary safety and soundness regulator, if any, of such Servicer, that is more restrictive than the foregoing delinquency recognition policy. Section 4.04 Certain Matters Relating to the Determination of LIBOR. LIBOR shall be calculated by the Securities Administrator in accordance with the definition of LIBOR. Until all of the Offered Certificates are paid in full, the Securities Administrator shall at all times retain at least four Reference Banks for the purpose of determining LIBOR with respect to each LIBOR Determination Date. The Securities Administrator initially shall designate the Reference Banks (after consultation with the Depositor). Each "Reference Bank" shall be a leading bank engaged in transactions in Eurodollar deposits in the international Eurocurrency market, shall not control, be controlled by, or be under common control with, the Securities Administrator and shall have an established place of business in London. If any such Reference Bank should be unwilling or unable to act as such or if the Securities Administrator should terminate its appointment as Reference Bank, the Securities Administrator shall promptly appoint or cause to be appointed another Reference Bank (after consultation with the Depositor). The Securities Administrator shall have no liability or responsibility to any Person for (i) the selection of any Reference Bank for purposes of determining LIBOR or (ii) any inability to retain at least four Reference Banks which is caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control. The Pass-Through Rate for each Class of Offered Certificates for each Interest Accrual Period shall be determined by the Securities Administrator on each LIBOR Determination Date so long as the Offered Certificates are Outstanding on the basis of LIBOR and the respective formulae appearing in footnotes corresponding to the Offered Certificates in the table relating to the Certificates in the Preliminary Statement. The Securities Administrator shall not have any liability or responsibility to any Person for its inability, following a good-faith reasonable effort, to obtain quotations from the Reference Banks or to determine the arithmetic mean referred to in the definition of LIBOR, all as provided for in this Section 4.04 and the definition of LIBOR. The establishment of LIBOR and each Pass-Through Rate for the Offered Certificates by the Securities Administrator shall (in the absence of manifest error) be final, conclusive and binding upon each Holder of a Certificate and the Securities Administrator. Section 4.05 Allocation of Applied Realized Loss Amounts. Any Applied Realized Loss Amounts shall be allocated by the Securities Administrator to the most junior Class of Subordinated Certificates then Outstanding in reduction of the Class Certificate Balance thereof. Section 4.06 Swap Account. On the Closing Date, the Securities Administrator shall establish and maintain in its name, a separate non-interest bearing trust account for the benefit of the holders of the Certificates (the "Swap Account") as a part of the Trust Fund. The Swap Account shall be an Eligible Account, and funds on deposit therein shall be held separate and apart from, and shall not be commingled with, any other moneys, including, without limitation, other moneys of the Securities Administrator held pursuant to this Agreement. On the Business Day immediately preceding each Distribution Date, Swap Termination Payments, Net Swap Payments owed to the Swap Provider and Net Swap Receipts for that Distribution Date will be deposited into the Swap Account. Funds in the Swap Account will be distributed in the following order of priority: (i) to the Swap Provider, all Net Swap Payments, if any, owed to the Swap Provider for that Distribution Date; (ii) to the Swap Provider, any Swap Termination Payment, including, without limitation, any Senior Defaulted Swap Termination Payment but not including any other Defaulted Swap Termination Payment owed to the Swap Provider for that Distribution Date; (iii) to the Class A Certificates, to pay Accrued Certificate Interest Distribution Amounts and, if applicable, any Unpaid Interest Amounts as described in Section 4.02(a)(i), to the extent unpaid from Available Funds; (iv) sequentially, to the Class M-1, Class M-2, Class M-3, Class M-4, Class M-5, Class M-6, Class B-1, Class B-2 and Class B-3 Certificates, in that order, to pay Accrued Certificate Interest Distribution Amounts and, if applicable, any Unpaid Interest Amounts as described in Section 4.02(a)(i) and Section 4.02(a)(iii), to the extent unpaid from Available Funds; (v) to the Offered Certificates, to pay principal as described and, in the same manner and order of priority as set forth, in Section 4.02(a)(ii)(A) or Section 4.02(a)(ii)(B), as applicable, but only to the extent necessary to restore the Subordinated Amount to the Specified Subordinated Amount for prior or current Realized Losses not previously reimbursed, after giving effect to payments and distributions from Available Funds; (vi) to the Class A Certificates, to pay Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and, without duplication, Upper Tier CarryForward Amounts, pro rata, based on their Class Certificate Balances for such Distribution Date, up to the Swap Payment Allocation for each Class of Class A Certificates and to the extent unpaid from Available Funds (including Basis Risk Payments on deposit in the Excess Reserve Fund Account); (vii) sequentially, to the Class M-1, Class M-2, Class M-3, Class M-4, Class M-5, Class M-6, Class B-1, Class B-2 and Class B-3 Certificates, to pay Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts, and, without duplication, Upper Tier CarryForward Amounts, up to the Swap Payment Allocation for each Class of Class M and Class B Certificates and to the extent unpaid from Available Funds (including Basis Risk Payments on deposit in the Excess Reserve Fund Account); (viii) to the Offered Certificates, any remaining unpaid Basis Risk CarryForward Amount, and, without duplication, Upper Tier CarryForward Amounts, pro rata, based on their respective remaining unpaid Basis Risk CarryForward Amount after the allocation of payments as set forth in clauses (vi) and (vii) above; (ix) sequentially, to the Class M-1, Class M-2, Class M-3, Class M-4, Class M-5, Class M-6, Class B-1, Class B-2 and Class B-3 Certificates, to pay any Unpaid Realized Loss Amount, to the extent unpaid from Available Funds; (x) to the Swap Provider, any remaining Defaulted Swap Termination Payment owed to the Swap Provider for that Distribution Date; and (xi) to the holders of the Class X Certificates, any remaining amounts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the Trust receives a Swap Termination Payment, the Securities Administrator shall use the Swap Termination Payment to enter into a replacement interest rate swap agreement as directed by the Depositor with a successor Swap Provider (or its guarantor) meeting the ratings requirements set forth in the Interest Rate Swap Agreement being terminated on the same remaining terms as those in the Interest Rate Swap Agreement being terminated, so long as the Swap Termination Payment is sufficient to obtain such replacement interest rate swap agreement. In the event that the Trust receives a Swap Termination Payment and a successor Swap Provider cannot be obtained, then the Securities Administrator shall deposit the Swap Termination Payment into the reserve account that is a sub-account of the Swap Account. On each subsequent Distribution Date (so long as funds are available in the reserve account), the Securities Administrator shall withdraw from the reserve account and deposit into the Swap Account an amount equal to the amount of any Net Swap Receipt due the Trust (calculated in accordance with the terms of the original Interest Rate Swap Agreement) and treat such amount as a Net Swap Receipt for purposes of determining the distributions from the Swap Account. In no event shall the Securities Administrator be responsible for the selection of any successor or replacement swap provider or any shortfalls caused by a failure to enter into a replacement interest rate swap agreement. Upon termination of the Trust, any amounts remaining in the Swap Account shall be distributed pursuant to the priorities set forth in this Section 4.06. In the event that, upon the Trust entering into a replacement interest rate swap following the occurrence of an Additional Termination Event of the type described in Part 1(h)(ii) of the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, the Trust is entitled to receive a payment from a replacement swap provider, the Securities Administrator shall direct the replacement swap provider to make such payment to the Swap Account. Any Senior Defaulted Swap Termination Payment shall be made from the Swap Account to the Swap Provider immediately upon receipt of such payment, regardless of whether the date of receipt thereof is a Distribution Date. To the extent that any Replacement Swap Provider Payment is made to an account other than the Swap Account, then, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, any Senior Defaulted Swap Termination Payment shall be paid to the Swap Provider immediately upon receipt of such Replacement Swap Provider Payment, regardless of whether the date of receipt thereof is a Distribution Date and without regard to anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the parties agree that the Swap Provider shall have first priority to any Replacement Swap Provider Payment over the payment by the Trust to Certificateholders, the Securities Administrator, any Servicer, any Custodian, any Responsible Party, the Trustee or any other Person. The Securities Administrator shall account for the Swap Account as an asset of a grantor trust under subpart E, Part I of subchapter J of the Code and not as an asset of any Trust REMIC created pursuant to this Agreement. The beneficial owners of the Swap Account are the Class X Certificateholders. For federal income tax purposes, Net Swap Payments and Swap Termination Payments (other than Senior Defaulted Swap Termination Payments) payable to the Swap Provider shall be deemed to be paid to the Swap Account from the Upper-Tier REMIC, first, by the Holder of the Class X Certificates (in respect of the Class IO Interest and, if applicable, the Class X Interest) and second, other than any Defaulted Swap Termination Payment, from the Upper-Tier REMIC by the Holders of the applicable Class or Classes of Offered Certificates (in respect of Class IO Shortfalls) as and to the extent provided in Section 8.13. Any Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and, without duplication, Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts distributed by the Securities Administrator to the Offered Certificateholders shall be accounted for by the Securities Administrator, for federal income tax purposes, as amounts paid first to the Holders of the Class X Certificates in respect of the Class X Interest and (to the extent remaining after payments to the Swap Provider) the Class IO Interest, and then to the respective Class or Classes of Offered Certificates. In addition, the Securities Administrator shall account for the rights of Holders of each Class of Offered Certificates to receive payments of Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts (including, but without duplication Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts) from the Swap Account (along with Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts payable from the Excess Reserve Fund Account) as rights in a separate limited recourse interest rate cap contract written by the Class X Certificateholders in favor of Holders of each such Class. The Swap Account shall be an "outside reserve fund" for federal income tax purposes and not an asset of any Trust REMIC. Furthermore, the Holders of the Class X Certificates shall be the beneficial owners of the Swap Account for all federal income tax purposes, and shall be taxable on all income earned thereon. With respect to the failure of the Swap Provider to perform any of its obligations under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, the breach by the Swap Provider of any of its representations and warranties made pursuant to the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, or the termination of the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, the Securities Administrator shall send any notices and make any demands, on behalf of the Trust as are required under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement. To the extent that the Swap Provider fails to make any payment required under terms of the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, the Securities Administrator shall immediately demand that Morgan Stanley, the guarantor of the Swap Provider's obligations under the guarantee of Morgan Stanley relating to the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, make any and all payments then required to be made by Morgan Stanley pursuant to such guarantee. The Securities Administrator shall cause any replacement swap provider to provide a copy of the related replacement interest rate swap agreement to the Securities Administrator and the Depositor. ARTICLE V THE CERTIFICATES Section 5.01 The Certificates. The Certificates shall be substantially in the forms attached hereto as exhibits. The Certificates shall be issuable in registered form, in the minimum denominations, integral multiples in excess thereof (except that one Certificate in each Class may be issued in a different amount) and aggregate denominations per Class set forth in the Preliminary Statement. The Depositor hereby directs the Securities Administrator to register the Class X and Class P Certificates in the name of the Depositor or its designee. On a date as to which the Depositor notifies the Securities Administrator, the Securities Administrator shall transfer the Class X and Class P Certificates in the name of the NIM Trustee, or such other name or names as the Depositor shall request, and to deliver the Class X and Class P Certificates to the NIM Trustee or to such other Person or Persons as the Depositor shall request. Subject to Section 10.02 respecting the final distribution on the Certificates, on each Distribution Date the Securities Administrator shall make distributions to each Certificateholder of record on the preceding Record Date either (x) by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account of such Holder at a bank or other entity having appropriate facilities therefor, if such Holder has so notified the Securities Administrator at least five Business Days prior to the related Record Date or (y) by check mailed by first class mail to such Certificateholder at the address of such Holder appearing in the Certificate Register. The Certificates shall be executed by manual or facsimile signature on behalf of the Securities Administrator by an authorized officer. Certificates bearing the manual or facsimile signatures of individuals who were, at the time such signatures were affixed, authorized to sign on behalf of the Securities Administrator shall bind the Securities Administrator, notwithstanding that such individuals or any of them have ceased to be so authorized prior to the authentication and delivery of any such Certificates or did not hold such offices at the date of such Certificate. No Certificate shall be entitled to any benefit under this Agreement, or be valid for any purpose, unless authenticated by the Securities Administrator by manual signature, and such authentication upon any Certificate shall be conclusive evidence, and the only evidence, that such Certificate has been duly executed and delivered hereunder. All Certificates shall be dated the date of their authentication. On the Closing Date, the Securities Administrator shall authenticate the Certificates to be issued at the direction of the Depositor or any Affiliate thereof. Section 5.02 Certificate Register; Registration of Transfer and Exchange of Certificates. (a) The Securities Administrator shall maintain, or cause to be maintained in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.06, a Certificate Register for the Trust Fund in which, subject to the provisions of subsections (b) and (c) below and to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Securities Administrator shall provide for the registration of Certificates and of transfers and exchanges of Certificates as herein provided. Upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Certificate, the Securities Administrator shall execute and deliver, in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new Certificates of the same Class and aggregate Percentage Interest. At the option of a Certificateholder, Certificates may be exchanged for other Certificates of the same Class in authorized denominations and evidencing the same aggregate Percentage Interest upon surrender of the Certificates to be exchanged at the office or agency of the Securities Administrator. Whenever any Certificates are so surrendered for exchange, the Securities Administrator shall execute, authenticate, and deliver the Certificates which the Certificateholder making the exchange is entitled to receive. Every Certificate presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Securities Administrator duly executed by the Holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing. No service charge to the Certificateholders shall be made for any registration of transfer or exchange of Certificates, but payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any transfer or exchange of Certificates may be required. All Certificates surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall be cancelled and subsequently destroyed by the Securities Administrator in accordance with the Securities Administrator's customary procedures. (b) No transfer of a Private Certificate shall be made unless such transfer is made pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws or is exempt from the registration requirements under said Act and such state securities laws. In determining whether a transfer is being made pursuant to an effective registration statement, the Securities Administrator shall be entitled to rely solely upon a written notice to such effect from the Depositor. Except with respect to (i) the transfer of the Class X, Class P or Class R Certificates to the Depositor or an Affiliate of the Depositor, (ii) the transfer of the Class X or Class P Certificates to the NIM Issuer or the NIM Trustee, or (iii) a transfer of the Class X or Class P Certificates from the NIM Issuer or the NIM Trustee to the Depositor or an Affiliate of the Depositor, in the event that a transfer of a Private Certificate which is a Physical Certificate is to be made in reliance upon an exemption from the Securities Act and such laws, in order to assure compliance with the Securities Act and such laws, the Certificateholder desiring to effect such transfer shall certify to the Securities Administrator in writing the facts surrounding the transfer in substantially the form set forth in Exhibit H (the "Transferor Certificate") and either (i) there shall be delivered to the Securities Administrator a letter in substantially the form of Exhibit I (the "Rule 144A Letter") or (ii) there shall be delivered to the Securities Administrator at the expense of the transferor an Opinion of Counsel that such transfer may be made without registration under the Securities Act. In the event that a transfer of a Private Certificate which is a Book-Entry Certificate is to be made in reliance upon an exemption from the Securities Act and such laws, in order to assure compliance with the Securities Act and such laws, the Certificateholder desiring to effect such transfer will be deemed to have made as of the transfer date each of the certifications set forth in the Transferor Certificate in respect of such Certificate and the transferee will be deemed to have made as of the transfer date each of the certifications set forth in the Rule 144A Letter in respect of such Certificate, in each case as if such Certificate were evidenced by a Physical Certificate. The Depositor shall provide to any Holder of a Private Certificate and any prospective transferee designated by any such Holder, information regarding the related Certificates and the Mortgage Loans and such other information as shall be necessary to satisfy the condition to eligibility set forth in Rule 144A(d)(4) for transfer of any such Certificate without registration thereof under the Securities Act pursuant to the registration exemption provided by Rule 144A. The Securities Administrator and the Servicers shall cooperate with the Depositor in providing the Rule 144A information referenced in the preceding sentence, including providing to the Depositor such information regarding the Certificates, the Mortgage Loans and other matters regarding the Trust Fund as the Depositor shall reasonably request to meet its obligation under the preceding sentence. Each Holder of a Private Certificate desiring to effect such transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Trustee, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator and each Servicer against any liability that may result if the transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with such federal and state laws. Except with respect to (i) the transfer of the Class R, Class X or Class P Certificates to the Depositor or an Affiliate of the Depositor, (ii) the transfer of the Class X or Class P Certificates to the NIM Issuer or the NIM Trustee, or (iii) a transfer of the Class X or Class P Certificates from the NIM Issuer or the NIM Trustee to the Depositor or an Affiliate of the Depositor, no transfer of an ERISA-Restricted Certificate shall be made unless the Securities Administrator shall have received either (i) a representation from the transferee of such Certificate acceptable to and in form and substance satisfactory to the Securities Administrator (in the event such Certificate is a Private Certificate or a Residual Certificate, such requirement is satisfied only by the Securities Administrator's receipt of a representation letter from the transferee substantially in the form of Exhibit I), to the effect that such transferee is not an employee benefit plan or arrangement subject to Section 406 of ERISA, a plan subject to Section 4975 of the Code or a plan subject to any Federal, state or local law ("Similar Law") materially similar to the foregoing provisions of ERISA or the Code, nor a Person acting on behalf of any such plan or arrangement nor using the assets of any such plan or arrangement to effect such transfer, or (ii) in the case of an ERISA-Restricted Certificate other than a Residual Certificate or a Class P Certificate that has been the subject of an ERISA-Qualifying Underwriting, and the purchaser is an insurance company, a representation that the purchaser is an insurance company that is purchasing such Certificates with funds contained in an "insurance company general account" (as such term is defined in Section V(e) of Prohibited Transaction Class Exemption 95-60 ("PTCE 95-60")) and that the purchase and holding of such Certificates are covered under Sections I and III of PTCE 95-60 or (iii) in the case of any such ERISA-Restricted Certificate other than a Residual Certificate or Class P Certificate presented for registration in the name of an employee benefit plan subject to Title I of ERISA, a plan or arrangement subject to Section 4975 of the Code (or comparable provisions of any subsequent enactments), or a plan subject to Similar Law, or a trustee of any such plan or any other person acting on behalf of any such plan or arrangement or using such plan's or arrangement's assets, an Opinion of Counsel satisfactory to the Securities Administrator, which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Servicers, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator or the Trust Fund, addressed to the Securities Administrator, to the effect that the purchase or holding of such ERISA-Restricted Certificate will not constitute or result in a non-exempt prohibited transaction within the meaning of ERISA, Section 4975 of the Code or any Similar Law and will not subject the Depositor, the Securities Administrator or the Servicers to any obligation in addition to those expressly undertaken in this Agreement or to any liability. For purposes of the preceding sentence, with respect to an ERISA-Restricted Certificate that is not a Private Certificate or a Residual Certificate, in the event the representation letter referred to in the preceding sentence is not furnished, such representation shall be deemed to have been made to the Securities Administrator by the transferee's (including an initial acquirer's) acceptance of the ERISA-Restricted Certificates. Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary herein, (a) any purported transfer of an ERISA-Restricted Certificate, other than a Class P Certificate or Residual Certificate, to or on behalf of an employee benefit plan subject to ERISA, the Code or Similar Law without the delivery to the Securities Administrator of an Opinion of Counsel satisfactory to the Securities Administrator as described above shall be void and of no effect and (b) any purported transfer of a Class P Certificate or Residual Certificate to a transferee that does not make the representation in clause (i) above shall be void and of no effect. To the extent permitted under applicable law (including, but not limited to, ERISA), the Securities Administrator shall be under no liability to any Person for any registration of transfer of any ERISA-Restricted Certificate that is in fact not permitted by this Section 5.02(b) or for making any payments due on such Certificate to the Holder thereof or taking any other action with respect to such Holder under the provisions of this Agreement so long as the transfer was registered by the Securities Administrator in accordance with the foregoing requirements. As long as the Interest Rate Swap Agreement is in effect, each beneficial owner of a Certificate other than an ERISA-Restricted Certificate, or any interest therein, shall be deemed to have represented that either (i) it is not a Plan or (ii) the acquisition and holding of the Certificate are eligible for the exemptive relief available under at least one of the Investor-Based Exemptions. (c) Each Person who has or who acquires any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall be deemed by the acceptance or acquisition of such Ownership Interest to have agreed to be bound by the following provisions, and the rights of each Person acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate are expressly subject to the following provisions: (i) Each Person holding or acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall be a Permitted Transferee and shall promptly notify the Securities Administrator of any change or impending change in its status as a Permitted Transferee; (ii) No Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate may be registered on the Closing Date or thereafter transferred, and the Securities Administrator shall not register the Transfer of any Residual Certificate unless, in addition to the certificates required to be delivered to the Securities Administrator under subparagraph (b) above, the Securities Administrator shall have been furnished with an affidavit (a "Transfer Affidavit") of the initial owner or the proposed transferee in the form attached hereto as Exhibit G; (iii) Each Person holding or acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall agree (A) to obtain a Transfer Affidavit from any other Person to whom such Person attempts to Transfer its Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate, (B) to obtain a Transfer Affidavit from any Person for whom such Person is acting as nominee, trustee or agent in connection with any Transfer of a Residual Certificate and (C) not to Transfer its Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate or to cause the Transfer of an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate to any other Person if it has actual knowledge that such Person is a Non-Permitted Transferee; (iv) Any attempted or purported Transfer of any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate in violation of the provisions of this Section 5.02(c) shall be absolutely null and void and shall vest no rights in the purported Transferee. If any purported transferee shall become a Holder of a Residual Certificate in violation of the provisions of this Section 5.02(c), then the last preceding Permitted Transferee shall be restored to all rights as Holder thereof retroactive to the date of registration of Transfer of such Residual Certificate. The Securities Administrator shall not have any liability to any Person for any registration of Transfer of a Residual Certificate that is in fact not permitted by Section 5.02(b) and this Section 5.02(c) or for making any payments due on such Certificate to the Holder thereof or taking any other action with respect to such Holder under the provisions of this Agreement so long as the Transfer was registered after receipt of the related Transfer Affidavit, Transferor Certificate and the Rule 144A Letter. The Securities Administrator shall be entitled but not obligated to recover from any Holder of a Residual Certificate that was in fact a Non-Permitted Transferee at the time it became a Holder or, at such subsequent time as it became a Non-Permitted Transferee, all payments made on such Residual Certificate at and after either such time. Any such payments so recovered by the Securities Administrator shall be paid and delivered by the Securities Administrator to the last preceding Permitted Transferee of such Certificate; and (v) The Depositor shall use its best efforts to make available, upon receipt of written request from the Securities Administrator, all information necessary to compute any tax imposed under Section 860E(e) of the Code as a result of a Transfer of an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate to any Holder who is a Non-Permitted Transferee. The restrictions on Transfers of a Residual Certificate set forth in this Section 5.02(c) shall cease to apply (and the applicable portions of the legend on a Residual Certificate may be deleted) with respect to Transfers occurring after delivery to the Securities Administrator of an Opinion of Counsel, which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Trust Fund or the Securities Administrator, to the effect that the elimination of such restrictions will not cause any Trust REMIC hereunder to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that the Certificates are Outstanding or result in the imposition of any tax on the Trust Fund, a Certificateholder or another Person. Each Person holding or acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate hereby consents to any amendment of this Agreement which, based on an Opinion of Counsel furnished to the Securities Administrator, is reasonably necessary (a) to ensure that the record ownership of, or any beneficial interest in, a Residual Certificate is not transferred, directly or indirectly, to a Person that is a Non-Permitted Transferee and (b) to provide for a means to compel the Transfer of a Residual Certificate which is held by a Person that is a Non-Permitted Transferee to a Holder that is a Permitted Transferee. (d) The preparation and delivery of all certificates and opinions referred to above in this Section 5.02 in connection with transfer shall be at the expense of the parties to such transfers. (e) Except as provided below, the Book-Entry Certificates shall at all times remain registered in the name of the Depository or its nominee and at all times: (i) registration of the Certificates may not be transferred by the Securities Administrator except to another Depository; (ii) the Depository shall maintain book-entry records with respect to the Certificate Owners and with respect to ownership and transfers of such Book-Entry Certificates; (iii) ownership and transfers of registration of the Book-Entry Certificates on the books of the Depository shall be governed by applicable rules established by the Depository; (iv) the Depository may collect its usual and customary fees, charges and expenses from its Depository Participants; (v) the Securities Administrator shall deal with the Depository, Depository Participants and indirect participating firms as representatives of the Certificate Owners of the Book-Entry Certificates for purposes of exercising the rights of holders under this Agreement, and requests and directions for and votes of such representatives shall not be deemed to be inconsistent if they are made with respect to different Certificate Owners; and (vi) the Securities Administrator may rely and shall be fully protected in relying upon information furnished by the Depository with respect to its Depository Participants and furnished by the Depository Participants with respect to indirect participating firms and persons shown on the books of such indirect participating firms as direct or indirect Certificate Owners. All transfers by Certificate Owners of Book-Entry Certificates shall be made in accordance with the procedures established by the Depository Participant or brokerage firm representing such Certificate Owner. Each Depository Participant shall only transfer Book-Entry Certificates of Certificate Owners it represents or of brokerage firms for which it acts as agent in accordance with the Depository's normal procedures. If (x) (i) the Depository or the Depositor advises the Securities Administrator in writing that the Depository is no longer willing or able to properly discharge its responsibilities as Depository, and (ii) the Securities Administrator or the Depositor is unable to locate a qualified successor, or (y) the Depositor notifies the Depository (and the Securities Administrator consents) of its intent to terminate the book-entry system through the Depository, and, upon receipt of notice of such intent from the Depository, the Depository Participants holding beneficial interests in the Book-Entry Certificates agree to initiate such termination, the Securities Administrator shall notify all Certificate Owners, through the Depository, of the occurrence of any such event and of the availability of definitive, fully-registered Certificates (the "Definitive Certificates") to Certificate Owners requesting the same. Upon surrender to the Securities Administrator of the related Class of Certificates by the Depository, accompanied by the instructions from the Depository for registration, the Securities Administrator shall issue the Definitive Certificates. None of the Servicers, the Depositor or the Securities Administrator shall be liable for any delay in delivery of such instruction and each may conclusively rely on, and shall be protected in relying on, such instructions. The Depositor shall provide the Securities Administrator with an adequate inventory of Certificates to facilitate the issuance and transfer of Definitive Certificates. Upon the issuance of Definitive Certificates all references herein to obligations imposed upon or to be performed by the Depository shall be deemed to be imposed upon and performed by the Securities Administrator, to the extent applicable with respect to such Definitive Certificates and the Securities Administrator and the Trustee shall recognize the Holders of the Definitive Certificates as Certificateholders hereunder; provided that the Securities Administrator shall not by virtue of its assumption of such obligations become liable to any party for any act or failure to act of the Depository. (f) Each Private Certificate presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer and accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, W-8BEN, W-8IMY (and all appropriate attachments) or W-9 in form satisfactory to the Securities Administrator, duly executed by the Certificateholder or his attorney duly authorized in writing. Each Certificate presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall be canceled and subsequently disposed of by the Securities Administrator in accordance with its customary practice. No service charge shall be made for any registration of transfer or exchange of Private Certificates, but the Securities Administrator may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any transfer or exchange of Private Certificates. Section 5.03 Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost or Stolen Certificates. If (a) any mutilated Certificate is surrendered to the Securities Administrator, or the Securities Administrator receives evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Certificate and (b) there is delivered to the Depositor, the Servicers and the Securities Administrator such security or indemnity as may be required by them to hold each of them harmless, then, in the absence of notice to the Securities Administrator that such Certificate has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, the Securities Administrator shall execute, authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate, a new Certificate of like Class, tenor and Percentage Interest. In connection with the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section 5.03, the Securities Administrator may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Securities Administrator) connected therewith. Any replacement Certificate issued pursuant to this Section 5.03 shall constitute complete and indefeasible evidence of ownership, as if originally issued, whether or not the lost, stolen or destroyed Certificate shall be found at any time. Section 5.04 Persons Deemed Owners. The Servicers, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee, the Depositor, and any agent of a Servicer, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name any Certificate is registered as the owner of such Certificate for the purpose of receiving distributions as provided in this Agreement and for all other purposes whatsoever, and none of the Servicers, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee, the Depositor, or any agent of a Servicer, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, or the Trustee shall be affected by any notice to the contrary. Section 5.05 Access to List of Certificateholders' Names and Addresses. If three or more Certificateholders (a) request such information in writing from the Securities Administrator, (b) state that such Certificateholders desire to communicate with other Certificateholders with respect to their rights under this Agreement or under the Certificates, and (c) provide a copy of the communication which such Certificateholders propose to transmit, or if the Depositor, the Trustee or a Servicer shall request such information in writing from the Securities Administrator, then the Securities Administrator shall, within ten Business Days after the receipt of such request, provide the Depositor, the Trustee, such Servicer or the Certificateholders at such recipients' expense the most recent list of the Certificateholders of such Trust Fund held by the Securities Administrator, if any. The Depositor and every Certificateholder, by receiving and holding a Certificate, agree that the Securities Administrator shall not be held accountable by reason of the disclosure of any such information as to the list of the Certificateholders hereunder, regardless of the source from which such information was derived. Section 5.06 Maintenance of Office or Agency. The Securities Administrator initially designates its Corporate Trust Office for registration of transfer or exchange purposes located at Sixth Street and Marquette Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55479, Attention: Corporate Trust Services - MSM 2006-HE2. The Securities Administrator shall give prompt written notice to the Certificateholders of any change in such location of any such office or agency. ARTICLE VI THE DEPOSITOR AND THE SERVICERS Section 6.01 Respective Liabilities of the Depositor and the Servicers. The Depositor and each of the Servicers shall each be liable in accordance herewith only to the extent of the obligations specifically and respectively imposed upon and undertaken by them herein. Section 6.02 Merger or Consolidation of the Depositor or a Servicer. The Depositor and each of the Servicers will each keep in full effect its existence, rights and franchises as a corporation or federally chartered savings bank, as the case may be, under the laws of the United States or under the laws of one of the states thereof and will each 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 respective duties under this Agreement. Any Person into which the Depositor or a Servicer may be merged or consolidated, or any Person resulting from any merger or consolidation to which the Depositor or a Servicer shall be a party, or any person succeeding to the business of the Depositor or a Servicer, shall be the successor of the Depositor or such Servicer, as the case may be, 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 successor or surviving Person to such Servicer shall be qualified to service mortgage loans on behalf of, Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. As a condition to any succession to any Servicer under this Agreement by any Person (i) into which a Servicer may be merged or consolidated, or (ii) which may be appointed as a successor to a Servicer, such Servicer shall provide to the Depositor, at least 15 calendar days prior to the effective date of such succession or appointment, (x) written notice to the Depositor of such succession or appointment and (y) in writing and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Depositor, all information reasonably necessary to enable the Securities Administrator, pursuant to Section 8.12(g), to accurately and timely report the event under Item 6.02 of Form 8-K pursuant to the Exchange Act (if such reports under the Exchange Act are then required to be filed under the Exchange Act). Section 6.03 Limitation on Liability of the Depositor, the Servicers and Others. Neither the Depositor, the Servicers nor any of their respective directors, officers, employees or agents shall be under any liability to the Certificateholders for any action taken or for refraining from the taking of any action in good faith pursuant to this Agreement, or for errors in judgment; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect the Depositor, the Servicers or any such Person against any breach of representations or warranties made by it herein or protect the Depositor, the Servicers or any such Person from any liability which would otherwise be imposed by reasons of willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence (or gross negligence in the case of the Depositor) in the performance of duties or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder. The Depositor, each Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Depositor and each Servicer may rely in good faith on any document of any kind prima facie properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder. The Depositor and its Affiliates, the Sponsor, each Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Depositor, the Sponsor or each Servicer shall be indemnified by the Trust Fund and held harmless against any loss, liability or expense incurred in connection with any audit, controversy or judicial proceeding relating to a governmental taxing authority or any legal action relating to this Agreement or the Certificates other than any loss, liability or expense related to any specific Mortgage Loan or Mortgage Loans (except as any such loss, liability or expense shall be otherwise reimbursable pursuant to this Agreement) and any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence (or gross negligence in the case of the Depositor) in the performance of duties hereunder or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder. Neither the Depositor nor any Servicer shall be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute or defend any legal action that is not incidental to its respective duties hereunder and which in its opinion may involve it in any expense or liability; provided, however, that each of the Depositor and each Servicer may in its discretion undertake any such action (or direct the Trustee to undertake such actions pursuant to Section 2.03 for the benefit of the Certificateholders) that it may deem necessary or desirable in respect of this Agreement and the rights and duties of the parties hereto and interests of the Trustee and the Certificateholders hereunder. In such event, the legal expenses and costs of such action and any liability resulting therefrom shall be expenses, costs and liabilities of the Trust Fund, and the Depositor and the applicable Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed therefor out of the applicable Collection Account. Section 6.04 Limitation on Resignation of a Servicer. Subject to Sections 7.01 and 10.07, no Servicer shall assign this Agreement or resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it except by mutual consent of the applicable Servicer, the Depositor and the Trustee or upon the determination that its duties hereunder are no longer permissible under applicable law and such incapacity cannot be cured by such Servicer without the incurrence of unreasonable expense. Any such determination permitting the resignation of a Servicer shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect delivered to the Depositor and the Trustee which Opinion of Counsel shall be in form and substance acceptable to the Depositor and the Trustee. No such resignation shall become effective until a successor shall have assumed such Servicer's responsibilities and obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 6.04 herein to the contrary, in the event that a Servicer determines that it will no longer engage in the business of servicing mortgage loans, such Servicer may assign its rights under this Agreement, provided that, (i) the Depositor in its sole discretion has consented, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, (ii) the Rating Agencies' ratings of the Certificates in effect immediately prior to such action will not be qualified, reduced or withdrawn as a result thereof (as evidenced by a letter to such effect from the Rating Agencies) and (iii) such Servicer shall be liable for all costs and expenses associated with the transfer of servicing, provided, further, that such Servicer shall indemnify and hold each of the Trust Fund, the Trustee, the Custodians, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, the other Servicers hereunder, any sub-servicer, the successor servicer and each Certificateholder harmless against any and all claims, losses, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable legal fees and related costs, judgments, and any other costs, fees and expenses that such party may sustain in any way related to such assignment except with respect to a successor servicer's failure to comply with the terms of this Agreement. No assignment by such Servicer shall become effective until a successor servicer acceptable to the Depositor and the Trustee shall have assumed in writing such Servicer's responsibilities, duties, liabilities (other than those liabilities arising prior to the appointment of such successor) and obligations under this Agreement. Any such assignment shall not relieve the applicable Servicer of responsibility for any of the obligations specified herein except to the extent that such responsibilities have been expressly assumed by the successor servicer. Section 6.05 Additional Indemnification by the Servicers; Third-Party Claims. (a) Each Servicer, severally and not jointly, shall indemnify the applicable Responsible Party, the Depositor, the Sponsor, the Securities Administrator and the Trustee and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Depositor, the Sponsor, the Securities Administrator or the Trustee and hold them harmless against any and all claims, losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments, and any other costs, fees and expenses that any of them may sustain in any way related to (i) any breach by such Servicer of any of its representations and warranties referred to in Section 2.03(a), (ii) any error in any tax or information return prepared by such Servicer or (iii) the failure of such Servicer to perform its duties and service the Mortgage Loans in compliance with the terms of this Agreement (including, without limitation, the failure to deliver accurate and complete information on a timely basis pursuant to Section 4.03(e). The applicable Servicer immediately shall notify the Depositor, the Securities Administrator and the Trustee if such claim is made by a third-party with respect to this Agreement or the Mortgage Loans, assume (with the prior written consent of the Depositor and the Securities Administrator) the defense of any such claim and pay all expenses in connection therewith, including reasonable counsel fees, and promptly pay, discharge and satisfy any judgment or decree which may be entered against it or the Depositor, the Sponsor, the applicable Responsible Party, the Securities Administrator or the Trustee in respect of such claim. (b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, each Servicer shall indemnify the Depositor, the Sponsor, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Depositor, the Sponsor, the Trustee or the Securities Administrator and hold them harmless against any and all claims, losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments, and any other costs, fees and expenses that any of them may sustain in any way related to any failure by such Servicer or any Subservicer engaged by such Servicer or any Subcontractor utilized by such Servicer to deliver any information, report, certification or accountants' letter when and as required under Sections 3.22, 3.23, 6.02 or 8.12, including without limitation any failure by such Servicer to identify pursuant to Section 3.02(e) any Subcontractor "participating in the servicing function" within the meaning of Item 1122 of Regulation AB. (c) If the indemnification provided for in this Section 6.05 is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless any Person entitled to indemnification thereunder, then such Servicer shall contribute to the amount paid or payable to the Person entitled to indemnification as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities of such Person in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of such Person on the one hand and such Servicer, on the other, in connection with the Servicer's obligations pursuant to this Section 6.05. This Section 6.05 shall survive the termination of this Agreement or the earlier resignation or removal of each Servicer. ARTICLE VII DEFAULT Section 7.01 Events of Default. "Event of Default", wherever used herein, means, with respect to each Servicer individually, any one of the following events: (a) any failure by a Servicer to remit to the Securities Administrator any payment required to be made under the terms of this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of one Business Day, or in the case of Wells Fargo, two Business Days, after the date upon which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to such Servicer by the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, or to such Servicer, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator and the Trustee by Certificateholders entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights in the Certificates; or (b) any failure on the part of a Servicer duly to observe or perform in any material respect any other of the covenants or agreements on the part of such Servicer set forth in this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of sixty (60) days (except that (x) such number of days shall be fifteen in the case of a failure to pay any premium for any insurance policy required to be maintained under this Agreement and (y) such number of days shall be nine in the case of a failure to observe or perform any of the obligations set forth in Sections 3.02, 3.22, 3.23, 6.02 or 8.12), after the earlier of (i) the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to such Servicer by the Depositor, the Securities Administrator or the Trustee, or to such Servicer, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator and the Trustee by Certificateholders entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights in the Certificates and (ii) actual knowledge of such failure by a Servicing Officer of such Servicer; or (c) a decree or order of a court or agency or supervisory authority having jurisdiction for the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, bankruptcy, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings, or for the winding-up or liquidation of its affairs, shall have been entered against a Servicer and such decree or order shall have remained in force undischarged or unstayed for a period of sixty days; or (d) a Servicer shall consent to the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, bankruptcy, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings of or relating to a Servicer or of or relating to all or substantially all of its property; or (e) a Servicer shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, file a petition to take advantage of any applicable insolvency or reorganization statute, make an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or voluntarily suspend payment of its obligations; or (f) a breach of any representation and warranty of a Servicer referred to in Section 2.03(a), which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Certificateholders and which continues unremedied for a period of thirty days after the date upon which written notice of such breach is given to such Servicer by the Trustee, the Securities Administrator or the Depositor, or to such Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator or the Depositor by Certificateholders entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights in the Certificates; or (g) either (i) with respect to Wells Fargo or JPMorgan, any withdrawal or downgrade of two or more levels (i.e., from "Above Average" to "Below Average" or the equivalent) of the servicer rating, as of the Closing Date, of such Servicer by any Rating Agency which results in a downgrade, qualification or withdrawal of the rating assigned to any Class of Certificates by any Rating Agency or (ii) with respect to HomEq, Fitch reduces its servicer rating of HomEq to "RPS2-" or lower, Moody's reduces its servicer rating of HomEq to "SQ3" or lower, or S&P reduces its servicer rating of HomEq to "Average" or lower. If an Event of Default described in clauses (a) through (g) of this Section 7.01 shall occur, then, and in each and every such case, so long as such Event of Default shall not have been remedied, the Trustee may, and at the direction of a majority of the Voting Rights, the Trustee shall, by notice in writing to the applicable Servicer (with a copy to the Securities Administrator and each Rating Agency), terminate all of the rights and obligations of such Servicer under this Agreement and in and to the Mortgage Loans serviced by such Servicer and the proceeds thereof, other than its rights as a Certificateholder hereunder; provided, however, that the Trustee shall not be required to give written notice to such Servicer of the occurrence of an Event of Default described in clauses (b) through (g) of this Section 7.01 unless and until a Responsible Officer of the Trustee has actual knowledge of the occurrence of such an event. In the event that a Responsible Officer of the Trustee has actual knowledge of the occurrence of an Event of Default described in clause (a) of this Section 7.01, the Trustee shall give written notice to the applicable Servicer of the occurrence of such an event within one Business Day of the first day on which such Responsible Officer obtains actual knowledge of such occurrence; provided, that if such failure is the failure to make a P&I Advance, the Trustee shall send such notice prior to 12:00 noon New York time on the Distribution Date and, if the Event of Default of such Servicer was the failure to make a P&I Advance, the Trustee, as successor servicer, shall make such P&I Advance on the Distribution Date that such notice was delivered. On and after the receipt by such Servicer of such written notice, all authority and power of such Servicer hereunder, whether with respect to the Mortgage Loans or otherwise, shall pass to and be vested in the Trustee. Subject to Section 7.02, the Trustee is hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of such Servicer, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, any and all documents and other instruments, and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such notice of termination, whether to complete the transfer and endorsement or assignment of the Mortgage Loans and related documents, or otherwise. Unless expressly provided in such written notice, no such termination shall affect any obligation of such Servicer to pay amounts owed pursuant to Article VIII. Such Servicer agrees to cooperate with the Trustee in effecting the termination of such Servicer's responsibilities and rights hereunder, including, without limitation, the transfer to the Trustee of all cash amounts which shall at the time be credited to the related Collection Account of such predecessor Servicer, or thereafter be received with respect to the Mortgage Loans. Notwithstanding any termination of the activities of a Servicer hereunder, such Servicer shall be entitled to receive from the Trust Fund, prior to transfer of its servicing obligations hereunder, payment of all accrued and unpaid Servicing Fees and reimbursement for all outstanding P&I Advances and Servicing Advances. Section 7.02 Trustee to Act; Appointment of Successor. On and after the time a Servicer receives a notice of termination pursuant to Section 3.24 or Section 7.01, the Trustee shall, subject to and to the extent provided in Section 3.05, be the successor to such Servicer in its capacity as servicer under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for herein and shall be subject to all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities relating thereto placed on such Servicer by the terms and provisions hereof and applicable law including the obligation to make P&I Advances or Servicing Advances pursuant to Section 3.24 or Section 7.01. As compensation therefor, the Trustee shall be entitled to all funds relating to the Mortgage Loans that such Servicer would have been entitled to charge to its Collection Account if such Servicer had continued to act hereunder including, if such Servicer was receiving the Servicing Fee, the Servicing Fee and the income on investments or gain related to its Collection Account and the Distribution Account which such Servicer would be entitled to receive. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Trustee has become the successor to such Servicer in accordance with Section 7.01, (a) the Trustee shall have a period not to exceed 90 days to complete the transfer of servicing and all data and to correct or manipulate such servicing data as may be required by the Trustee to correct any errors or insufficiencies in the servicing data or otherwise enable the Trustee or other successor servicer to service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices and (b) the Trustee may, if it shall be unwilling to so act, or shall, if it is prohibited by applicable law from making P&I Advances and Servicing Advances pursuant to Section 4.01, if it is otherwise unable to so act or at the written request of Certificateholders entitled to at least a majority of the Voting Rights, appoint, or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint, any established mortgage loan servicing institution the appointment of which does not adversely affect the then current rating of the Certificates by each Rating Agency, as the successor to such servicer hereunder in the assumption of all or any part of the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of such servicer hereunder. Any successor to such servicer shall be an institution which is a Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac approved servicer in good standing, which has a net worth of at least $30,000,000, which is willing to service the Mortgage Loans and which executes and delivers to the Depositor and the Trustee an agreement accepting such delegation and assignment, containing an assumption by such Person of the rights, powers, duties, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities of such terminated servicer (other than liabilities of such terminated servicer under Section 6.03 incurred prior to termination of such Servicer under Section 7.01), with like effect as if originally named as a party to this Agreement; provided, that each Rating Agency acknowledges that its rating of the Certificates in effect immediately prior to such assignment and delegation will not be qualified or reduced, as a result of such assignment and delegation. Pending appointment of a successor to a servicer hereunder, the Trustee, unless the Trustee is prohibited by law from so acting, shall, subject to Section 3.05, act in such capacity as hereinabove provided. In connection with such appointment and assumption, the Trustee may make such arrangements for the compensation of such successor out of payments on Mortgage Loans as it and such successor shall agree; provided, however, that no such compensation shall be in excess of the Servicing Fee Rate and amounts paid to the predecessor servicer from investments. The Trustee and such successor shall take such action, consistent with this Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession. Neither the Trustee nor any other successor servicer shall be deemed to be in default hereunder by reason of any failure to make, or any delay in making, any distribution hereunder or any portion thereof or any failure to perform, or any delay in performing, any duties or responsibilities hereunder, in either case caused by the failure of the predecessor servicer to deliver or provide, or any delay in delivering or providing, any cash, information, documents or records to it. In the event that a Servicer is terminated pursuant to Section 7.01, such terminated Servicer shall be responsible for the servicing transfer, provide notices to the Mortgagors, arrange for and transfer the Servicing Files to a successor servicer, pay all of its own out-of-pocket costs and expenses at its own expense and pay all costs and expenses of all other parties hereto relating to the transfer of the related Servicing Files to a successor servicer (excluding set-up costs and other administrative expenses of the successor servicer), and in all other cases the successor servicer shall pay for such costs and expenses but shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor from the Trust Fund. Such amounts payable by the terminated Servicer shall be paid by the terminated Servicer promptly upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs. If the Trustee is the predecessor Servicer (except in the case where the Trustee in its role as successor servicer is being terminated pursuant to Section 7.01 by reason of an Event of Default caused solely by the Trustee as the successor servicer and not by the predecessor Servicer's actions or omissions), such costs shall be paid by the prior terminated Servicer promptly upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs. Any successor to a Servicer as servicer shall give notice to the related Mortgagors of such change of servicer and shall, during the term of its service as servicer, maintain in force the policy or policies that each Servicer is required to maintain pursuant to Section 3.13. Section 7.03 Notification to Certificateholders. (a) Upon any termination of or appointment of a successor to a Servicer, the Securities Administrator shall give prompt written notice thereof to Certificateholders and to each Rating Agency. (b) Within 60 days after the occurrence of any Event of Default, the Securities Administrator shall transmit by mail to all Certificateholders and each Rating Agency notice of each such Event of Default hereunder known to the Securities Administrator, unless such event shall have been cured or waived. ARTICLE VIII CONCERNING THE TRUSTEE Section 8.01 Duties of the Trustee. The Trustee, before the occurrence of an Event of Default and after the curing of all Events of Default that may have occurred, shall undertake to perform such duties and only such duties as are specifically set forth in this Agreement.

The recitals contained herein and in the Certificates shall be taken as the statements of the Depositor and the Trustee assumes no responsibility for their correctness. The Trustee makes no representations as to the validity or sufficiency of this Agreement or of the Certificates or of any Mortgage Loan or related document. The Trustee shall not be accountable for the use or application by the Depositor, the Securities Administrator or a Servicer of any funds paid to the Depositor, the Securities Administrator or a Servicer in respect of the Mortgage Loans or deposited in or withdrawn from any Collection Account or the Distribution Account by the Depositor, the Securities Administrator or a Servicer. The Trustee shall have no responsibility for filing or recording any financing or continuation statement in any public office at any time or to otherwise perfect or maintain the perfection of any security interest or lien granted to it hereunder (unless the Trustee shall have become the successor servicer). Section 8.04 Trustee May Own Certificates. The Trustee in its individual or any other capacity may become the owner or pledgee of Certificates with the same rights as it would have if it were not the Trustee. Section 8.05 Trustee's Fees and Expenses. As compensation for its activities under this Agreement, the Trustee shall be paid its fee by the Securities Administrator from the Securities Administrator's own funds pursuant to a separate agreement. The Trustee and any director, officer, employee, or agent of the Trustee shall be indemnified by the Trust Fund against any loss, liability, or expense (including reasonable attorney's fees) resulting from any error in any tax or information return prepared by any Servicer or incurred in connection with any claim or legal action relating to (a) this Agreement, (b) the Certificates or the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, or (c) the performance of any of the Trustee's duties under this Agreement (including any unreimbursed out-of-pocket costs resulting from a servicing transfer), the Certificates or the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, other than any loss, liability, or expense (i) resulting from any breach of any Servicer's obligations in connection with this Agreement for which the related Servicer has performed its obligation to indemnify the Trustee pursuant to Section 6.05, (ii) resulting from any breach of any Responsible Party's obligations in connection with this Agreement for which the related Responsible Party has performed its obligations to indemnify the Trustee pursuant to Section 2.03(j) or (iii) incurred because of willful misconduct, bad faith, or negligence in the performance of any of the Trustee's duties under this Agreement. This indemnity shall survive the termination of this Agreement or the resignation or removal of the Trustee under this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, except as otherwise agreed upon in writing by the Depositor and the Trustee, and except for any expense, disbursement, or advance arising from the Trustee's negligence, bad faith, or willful misconduct, the Trust Fund shall pay or reimburse the Trustee, for all reasonable expenses, disbursements, and advances incurred or made by the Trustee in accordance with this Agreement with respect to: (A) the reasonable compensation, expenses, and disbursements of its counsel not associated with the closing of the issuance of the Certificates, and (B) the reasonable compensation, expenses, and disbursements of any accountant, engineer, or appraiser that is not regularly employed by the Trustee, to the extent that the Trustee must engage them to perform services under this Agreement. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or a separate letter agreement between the Trustee and the Depositor, the Trustee shall not be entitled to payment or reimbursement for any routine ongoing expenses incurred by the Trustee in the ordinary course of its duties as Trustee under this Agreement or for any other expenses incurred by the Trustee; provided, however, that no expense shall be reimbursed by the Trust Fund under this Agreement if it would not constitute an "unanticipated expense incurred by the REMIC" within the meaning of the REMIC Provisions. Section 8.06 Eligibility Requirements for the Trustee. The Trustee hereunder shall at all times be a corporation or association organized and doing business under the laws of a state or the United States of America, authorized under such laws to exercise corporate trust powers, having a combined capital and surplus of at least $50,000,000, subject to supervision or examination by federal or state authority and with a credit rating which would not cause any of the Rating Agencies to reduce their respective then current ratings of the Certificates (or having provided such security from time to time as is sufficient to avoid such reduction) as evidenced in writing by each Rating Agency. If such corporation or association publishes reports of condition at least annually, pursuant to law or to the requirements of the aforesaid supervising or examining authority, then for the purposes of this Section 8.06 the combined capital and surplus of such corporation or association shall be deemed to be its combined capital and surplus as set forth in its most recent report of condition so published. In case at any time the Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with this Section 8.06, the Trustee shall resign immediately in the manner and with the effect specified in Section 8.07. The entity serving as Trustee may have normal banking and trust relationships with the Depositor and its Affiliates or the Servicers and their Affiliates; provided, however, that such entity cannot be an Affiliate of the Depositor or a Servicer other than the Trustee in its role as successor to a Servicer. Section 8.07 Resignation and Removal of the Trustee. The Trustee may at any time resign and be discharged from the trusts hereby created by giving written notice of resignation to the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers and each Rating Agency not less than 60 days before the date specified in such notice, when, subject to Section 8.08, such resignation is to take effect, and acceptance by a successor trustee in accordance with Section 8.08 meeting the qualifications set forth in Section 8.06. If no successor trustee meeting such qualifications shall have been so appointed and have accepted appointment within 30 days after the giving of such notice or resignation, the resigning Trustee may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor trustee. If at any time the Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with Section 8.06 and shall fail to resign after written request thereto by the Depositor, or if at any time the Trustee shall become incapable of acting, or shall be adjudged as bankrupt or insolvent, or a receiver of the Trustee or of its property shall be appointed, or any public officer shall take charge or control of the Trustee or of its property or affairs for the purpose of rehabilitation, conservation or liquidation, or a tax is imposed with respect to the Trust Fund by any state in which the Trustee or the Trust Fund is located and the imposition of such tax would be avoided by the appointment of a different trustee, then the Depositor may remove the Trustee and appoint a successor trustee by written instrument, in triplicate, one copy of which shall be delivered to the Trustee, one copy to each Servicer and one copy to the successor trustee. The Holders of Certificates entitled to at least a majority of the Voting Rights may at any time remove the Trustee and appoint a successor trustee by written instrument or instruments, in triplicate, signed by such Holders or their attorneys-in-fact duly authorized, one complete set of which shall be delivered by the successor Trustee to each Servicer, one complete set to the Trustee so removed and one complete set to the successor so appointed. The successor trustee shall notify each Rating Agency of any removal of the Trustee. Any resignation or removal of the Trustee and appointment of a successor trustee pursuant to this Section 8.07 shall become effective upon acceptance of appointment by the successor trustee as provided in Section 8.08. Section 8.08 Successor Trustee. Any successor trustee appointed as provided in Section 8.07 shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Depositor and to its predecessor trustee and the Servicers an instrument accepting such appointment hereunder and thereupon the resignation or removal of the predecessor trustee shall become effective and such successor trustee, without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall become fully vested with all the rights, powers, duties and obligations of its predecessor hereunder, with the like effect as if originally named as trustee herein. The Depositor, the Servicers and the predecessor trustee shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things as may reasonably be required for more fully and certainly vesting and confirming in the successor trustee all such rights, powers, duties, and obligations. No successor trustee shall accept appointment as provided in this Section 8.08 unless at the time of its acceptance, the successor trustee is eligible under Section 8.06 and its appointment does not adversely affect the then current rating of the Certificates. Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor trustee as provided in this Section 8.08, the Depositor shall mail notice of the succession of such trustee hereunder to all Holders of Certificates. If the Depositor fails to mail such notice within 10 days after acceptance of appointment by the successor trustee, the successor trustee shall cause such notice to be mailed at the expense of the Depositor. Section 8.09 Merger or Consolidation of the Trustee. Any corporation into which the Trustee may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Trustee shall be a party, or any corporation succeeding to the business of the Trustee, shall be the successor of the Trustee hereunder; provided, that such corporation shall be eligible under Section 8.06 without the execution or filing of any paper or further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding. In connection with the succession to the Trustee under this Agreement by any Person (i) into which the Trustee may be merged or consolidated, or (ii) which may be appointed as a successor to the Trustee, the Trustee shall notify the Depositor of such succession or appointment and shall furnish to the Depositor in writing and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Depositor, all information reasonably necessary for the Depositor to accurately and timely report, pursuant to Section 8.12(g), the event under Item 6.02 of Form 8-K pursuant to the Exchange Act (if such reports under the Exchange Act are required to be filed under the Exchange Act). Section 8.10 Appointment of Co-Trustee or Separate Trustee. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, at any time, for the purpose of meeting any legal requirements of any jurisdiction in which any part of the Trust Fund or property securing any Mortgage Note may at the time be located, the applicable Servicer and the Trustee acting jointly shall have the power and shall execute and deliver all instruments to appoint one or more Persons approved by the Trustee to act as co-trustee or co-trustees jointly with the Trustee, or separate trustee or separate trustees, of all or any part of the Trust Fund, and to vest in such Person or Persons, in such capacity and for the benefit of the Certificateholders, such title to the Trust Fund or any part thereof, whichever is applicable, and, subject to the other provisions of this Section 8.10, such powers, duties, obligations, rights and trusts as the applicable Servicer and the Trustee may consider appropriate. If any Servicer shall not have joined in such appointment within 15 days after the receipt by such Servicer of a request to do so or in the case an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Trustee alone shall have the power to make such appointment. No co-trustee or separate trustee hereunder shall be required to meet the terms of eligibility as a successor trustee under Section 8.06 and no notice to Certificateholders of the appointment of any co-trustee or separate trustee shall be required under Section 8.08. Every separate trustee and co-trustee shall, to the extent permitted by law, be appointed and act subject to the following provisions and conditions: (a) To the extent necessary to effectuate the purposes of this Section 8.10, all rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Trustee, except for the obligation of the Trustee as successor Servicer under this Agreement to advance funds, shall be conferred or imposed upon and exercised or performed by the Trustee and such separate trustee or co-trustee jointly (it being understood that such separate trustee or co-trustee is not authorized to act separately without the Trustee joining in such act), except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed (whether as Trustee hereunder or as successor to a Servicer hereunder), the Trustee shall be incompetent or unqualified to perform such act or acts, in which event such rights, powers, duties and obligations (including the holding of title to the applicable Trust Fund or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed singly by such separate trustee or co-trustee, but solely at the direction of the Trustee; (b) No trustee hereunder shall be held personally liable because of any act or omission of any other trustee hereunder and such appointment shall not, and shall not be deemed to, constitute any such separate trustee or co-trustee as agent of the Trustee; (c) The Trustee may at any time accept the resignation of or remove any separate trustee or co-trustee; and (d) The Trust Fund, and not the Trustee, shall be liable for the payment of reasonable compensation, reimbursement and indemnification to any such separate trustee or co-trustee. Any notice, request or other writing given to the Trustee shall be deemed to have been given to each of the separate trustees and co-trustees, when and as effectively as if given to each of them. Every instrument appointing any separate trustee or co-trustee shall refer to this Agreement and the conditions of this Article VIII. Each separate trustee and co-trustee, upon its acceptance of the trusts conferred, shall be vested with the estates or property specified in its instrument of appointment, either jointly with the Trustee or separately, as may be provided therein, subject to all the provisions of this Agreement, specifically including every provision of this Agreement relating to the conduct of, affecting the liability of, or affording protection to, the Trustee. Every such instrument shall be filed with the Trustee and a copy thereof given to each Servicer and the Depositor. Any separate trustee or co-trustee may, at any time, constitute the Trustee its agent or attorney-in-fact, with full power and authority, to the extent not prohibited by law, to do any lawful act under or in respect of this Agreement on its behalf and in its name. If any separate trustee or co-trustee shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and trusts shall vest in and be exercised by the Trustee, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor trustee. Section 8.11 Tax Matters. It is intended that the assets with respect to which any REMIC election pertaining to the Trust Fund is to be made, as set forth in the Preliminary Statement, shall constitute, and that the conduct of matters relating to such assets shall be such as to qualify such assets as, a "real estate mortgage investment conduit" as defined in and in accordance with the REMIC Provisions. In furtherance of such intention, the Securities Administrator covenants and agrees that it shall act as agent (and the Securities Administrator is hereby appointed to act as agent) on behalf of each Trust REMIC and that in such capacity it shall: (a) prepare for the Trustee to sign, and the Trustee shall sign, and the Securities Administrator shall file, in a timely manner, a U.S. Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit (REMIC) Income Tax Return (Form 1066 or any successor form adopted by the Internal Revenue Service) and prepare for the Trustee to sign, and the Trustee shall sign, and the Securities Administrator shall file with the Internal Revenue Service and applicable state or local tax authorities income tax or information returns for each taxable year with respect to each Trust REMIC containing such information and at the times and in the manner as may be required by the Code or state or local tax laws, regulations, or rules, and furnish to Certificateholders the schedules, statements or information at such times and in such manner as may be required thereby; (b) within thirty days of the Closing Date, apply for an employer identification number from the Internal Revenue Service via Form SS-4 or any other acceptable method for all tax entities and shall also furnish to the Internal Revenue Service, on Form 8811 or as otherwise may be required by the Code, the name, title, address, and telephone number of the person that the Holders of the Certificates may contact for tax information relating thereto, together with such additional information as may be required by such Form, and update such information at the time or times in the manner required by the Code; (c) make an election that each of Pooling-Tier REMIC-1, Pooling-Tier REMIC-2, the Lower-Tier REMIC and the Upper-Tier REMIC be treated as a REMIC on the federal tax return for its first taxable year (and, if necessary, under applicable state law); (d) prepare and forward to the Certificateholders and to the Internal Revenue Service and, if necessary, state tax authorities, all information returns and reports as and when required to be provided to them in accordance with the REMIC Provisions, including the calculation of any original issue discount using the prepayment assumption (as described in the Prospectus Supplement); (e) provide information necessary for the computation of tax imposed on the Transfer of a Residual Certificate to a Person that is a Non-Permitted Transferee, or an agent (including a broker, nominee or other middleman) of a Non-Permitted Transferee, or a pass-through entity in which a Non-Permitted Transferee is the record holder of an interest (the reasonable cost of computing and furnishing such information may be charged to the Person liable for such tax); (f) to the extent that they are under its control, conduct matters relating to such assets at all times that any Certificates are Outstanding so as to maintain the status of each Trust REMIC as a REMIC under the REMIC Provisions; (g) not knowingly or intentionally take any action or omit to take any action that would cause the termination of the REMIC status of any Trust REMIC created hereunder; (h) pay, from the sources specified in the last paragraph of this Section 8.11, the amount of any federal or state tax, including prohibited transaction taxes as described below, imposed on any Trust REMIC created hereunder before its termination when and as the same shall be due and payable (but such obligation shall not prevent the Securities Administrator or any other appropriate Person from contesting any such tax in appropriate proceedings and shall not prevent the Securities Administrator from withholding payment of such tax, if permitted by law, pending the outcome of such proceedings); (i) cause federal, state or local income tax or information returns to be signed by the Trustee or such other Person as may be required to sign such returns by the Code or state or local laws, regulations or rules; and (j) maintain records relating to each Trust REMIC created hereunder, including the income, expenses, assets, and liabilities thereof on a calendar year basis and on the accrual method of accounting and the fair market value and adjusted basis of the assets determined at such intervals as may be required by the Code, as may be necessary to prepare the foregoing returns, schedules, statements or information. The Holder of the largest Percentage Interest of the Class R Certificates shall act as Tax Matters Person for each Trust REMIC, within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860F-4(d), and the Securities Administrator is hereby designated as agent of such Certificateholder for such purpose (or if the Securities Administrator is not so permitted, such Holder shall be the Tax Matters Person in accordance with the REMIC Provisions). In such capacity, the Securities Administrator shall, as and when necessary and appropriate, represent each Trust REMIC created hereunder in any administrative or judicial proceedings relating to an examination or audit by any governmental taxing authority, request an administrative adjustment as to any taxable year of each Trust REMIC created hereunder, enter into settlement agreements with any governmental taxing agency, extend any statute of limitations relating to any tax item of each Trust REMIC created hereunder, and otherwise act on behalf of each Trust REMIC in relation to any tax matter or controversy involving it. The Securities Administrator shall treat the rights of the Class P Certificateholders to Prepayment Charges, the rights of the Class X Certificateholders to receive amounts in the Excess Reserve Fund Account and the Swap Account (subject to the obligation to pay Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts) and the rights of the Offered Certificateholders to receive Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts as the beneficial ownership of interests in a grantor trust, and not as obligations of any Trust REMIC created hereunder, for federal income tax purposes. The Securities Administrator shall file or cause to be filed with the Internal Revenue Service Form 1041 or such other form as may be applicable and shall furnish or cause to be furnished, to the Class P Certificateholders, Class X Certificateholders and Offered Certificateholders, the respective amounts described above that are received, in the time or times and in the manner required by the Code. To enable the Securities Administrator to perform its duties under this Agreement, the Depositor shall provide to the Securities Administrator within ten days after the Closing Date all information or data that the Securities Administrator requests in writing and determines to be relevant for tax purposes to the valuations and offering prices of the Certificates, including the price, yield, prepayment assumption, and projected cash flows of the Certificates and the Mortgage Loans. Moreover, the Depositor shall provide information to the Securities Administrator concerning the value, if any, to each Class of Certificates of the right to receive Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts from the Excess Reserve Fund Account and Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts from the Swap Account. Thereafter, the Depositor shall provide to the Securities Administrator promptly upon written request therefor any additional information or data that the Securities Administrator may, from time to time, reasonably request to enable the Securities Administrator to perform its duties under this Agreement; provided, however, that the Depositor shall not be required to provide any information regarding the Mortgage Loans that the applicable Servicer is required to provide to the Securities Administrator pursuant to this Agreement. The Depositor hereby indemnifies the Securities Administrator for any losses, liabilities, damages, claims, or expenses of the Securities Administrator arising from any errors or miscalculations of the Securities Administrator that result from any failure of the Depositor to provide pursuant to this paragraph accurate information or data to the Securities Administrator on a timely basis. None of the Servicers, the Trustee or the Securities Administrator shall (i) permit the creation of any interests in any Trust REMIC other than the regular and residual interests set forth in the Preliminary Statement, (ii) receive any amount representing a fee or other compensation for services (except as otherwise permitted by this Agreement or the related Mortgage Loan documents) or (iii) otherwise knowingly or intentionally take any action, cause the Trust Fund to take any action or fail to take (or fail to cause to be taken) any action reasonably within its control and the scope of duties more specifically set forth herein, that, under the REMIC Provisions, if taken or not taken, as the case may be, could (i) endanger the status of any Trust REMIC as a REMIC or (ii) result in the imposition of a tax upon any Trust REMIC or the Trust Fund (including but not limited to the tax on "prohibited transactions" as defined in Section 860F(a)(2) of the Code and the tax on contributions to a REMIC set forth in Section 860G(d) of the Code, or the tax on "net income from foreclosure property") unless the Trustee and the Securities Administrator receive an Opinion of Counsel (at the expense of the party seeking to take such action or, if such party fails to pay such expense, and the Securities Administrator determines that taking such action is in the best interest of the Trust Fund and the Certificateholders, at the expense of the Trust Fund, but in no event at the expense of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator) to the effect that the contemplated action will not, with respect to the Trust Fund, any Trust REMIC created hereunder, endanger such status or, unless the Trustee determines in its sole discretion to indemnify the Trust Fund against such tax, result in the imposition of such a tax). If any tax is imposed on "prohibited transactions" of any Trust REMIC as defined in Section 860F(a)(2) of the Code, on the "net income from foreclosure property" of the Pooling-Tier REMIC-1 as defined in Section 860G(c) of the Code, on any contribution to any Trust REMIC after the Start-up Day pursuant to Section 860G(d) of the Code, or any other tax is imposed, including, if applicable, any minimum tax imposed on any Trust REMIC pursuant to Sections 23153 and 24878 of the California Revenue and Taxation Code, if not paid as otherwise provided for herein, the tax shall be paid by (i) the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, respectively, if such tax arises out of or results from negligence of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator in the performance of any of its obligations under this Agreement, (ii) the applicable Servicer and the Responsible Party, jointly, in the case of any such minimum tax, and the applicable Servicer if such tax arises out of or results from a breach by such Servicer of any of its obligations under this Agreement, (iii) the applicable Responsible Party if such tax arises out of or results from the applicable Responsible Party's obligation to repurchase a Mortgage Loan pursuant to Section 2.03, or (iv) in all other cases, or if the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the applicable Servicer or the applicable Responsible Party fails to honor its obligations under the preceding clause (i), (ii), or (iii), any such tax will be paid with amounts otherwise to be distributed to the Certificateholders, as provided in Section 4.02(a). Section 8.12 Periodic Filings. (a) The Securities Administrator and each Servicer shall reasonably cooperate with the Depositor in connection with the reporting requirements of the Trust under the Exchange Act. The Securities Administrator shall prepare for execution by the Depositor any Forms 8-K (other than the initial Form 8-K relating to this Agreement, which shall be the responsibility of the Depositor to prepare and file), 10-D and 10-K required by the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder, in order to permit the timely filing thereof, pursuant to the terms of this Section 8.12, and the Securities Administrator shall file (via the Commission's Electronic Data Gathering and Retrieval System, or EDGAR) such Forms executed by the Depositor. (b) The Securities Administrator shall prepare and file on behalf of the Trust any Form 10-D required by the Exchange Act, in form and substance as required by the Exchange Act. The Securities Administrator will utilize reasonable best efforts to file such Form 10-D on or by the 14th calendar day after each Distribution Date, but in no event later than the filing deadline for such Form 10-D (subject to permitted extensions under the Exchange Act). The Securities Administrator shall file each Form 10-D with a copy of the related Monthly Statement attached thereto. Any disclosure in addition to the Monthly Statement that is required to be included on Form 10-D ("Additional Form 10-D Disclosure") shall be prepared by the party responsible for preparing such disclosure as set forth in Exhibit S hereto and the Securities Administrator shall compile such disclosure pursuant to the following paragraph. The Securities Administrator will have no duty or liability for any failure hereunder to determine or prepare any Additional Form 10-D Disclosure, except as set forth in the next paragraph. As set forth on Exhibit S hereto, within 5 calendar days after the related Distribution Date, the parties to this Agreement shall be required to provide to the Securities Administrator and the Depositor, in EDGAR-compatible format, or in such other form as otherwise agreed upon by the Securities Administrator and such party, to the extent known by such applicable parties, any Additional Form 10-D Disclosure, if applicable. The Depositor will approve as to form and substance, or disapprove, as the case may be, the inclusion of the Additional Form 10-D Disclosure. The Depositor will be responsible for all reasonable fees and expenses assessed or incurred by the Securities Administrator in connection with including any Additional Form 10-D Disclosure on Form 10-D pursuant to this paragraph, including converting any such disclosure to an EDGAR-compatible format. The Securities Administrator shall prepare and forward electronically a draft copy of the Form 10-D to the Depositor sufficiently far in advance of, but in no event later than the 11th calendar day after the related Distribution Date, for the Depositor to review, verify and execute such Form 10-D. No later than 2 Business Days prior to the 15th calendar day after the related Distribution Date, an officer of the Depositor shall sign the Form 10-D and return an electronic or fax copy of such signed Form 10-D (with an original executed hard copy to follow by overnight mail) to the Securities Administrator. If a Form 10-D cannot be filed on time or if a previously filed Form 10-D needs to be amended, the Securities Administrator will follow the procedures set forth in Section 8.12(e)(ii). Promptly (but in any case within one Business Day) after filing with the Commission, the Securities Administrator will make available on its internet website a final executed copy of each Form 10-D prepared and filed by the Securities Administrator. The signing party at the Depositor can be contacted at the Depositor's address for notices set forth in Section 11.05(b)(ii)(a) or such other address as to which the Depositor has provided prior written notice to the Securities Administrator. The Depositor acknowledges that the performance by the Securities Administrator of its duties under this Section 8.12(b) related to the timely preparation and filing of Form 10-D is contingent, in part, upon the Servicers, the Depositor and any other Person obligated to provide Additional Form 10-D Disclosure as set forth on Exhibit R hereto, observing all applicable deadlines in the performance of their duties under this Section 8.12(b). The Securities Administrator shall have no liability for any loss, expense, damage, claim arising out of or with respect to any failure to properly prepare and/or timely file such Form 10-D, where such failure results from the Securities Administrator's inability or failure to obtain or receive, on a timely basis, any information from any party hereto (other than the Securities Administrator or any Subcontractor utilized by the Securities Administrator) needed to prepare, arrange for execution or file such Form 10-D, not resulting from its own negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct. (c) On any date within 90 days (including the 90th day) after the end of each fiscal year of the Trust or such earlier date as may be required by the Exchange Act (the "10-K Filing Deadline"), commencing in March 2007, the Securities Administrator shall prepare and file on behalf of the Trust a Form 10-K, in form and substance as required by the Exchange Act. Each such Form 10-K shall include the following items, in each case to the extent they have been delivered to the Securities Administrator within the applicable time frames set forth in this Agreement, (i) an annual compliance statement for the Securities Administrator, each Servicer and each Subservicer engaged by a Servicer and the Securities Administrator, as described under Section 3.22, (ii)(A) the annual reports on assessment of compliance with servicing criteria for the Securities Administrator, each Servicer, each Custodian, each Subservicer engaged by a Servicer and each Servicing Function Participant utilized by a Servicer, each Custodian or the Securities Administrator, as described under Section 3.23, and (B) if any such report on assessment of compliance with servicing criteria described under Section 3.23 identifies any material instance of noncompliance, disclosure identifying such instance of noncompliance, or such report on assessment of compliance with servicing criteria described under Section 3.23 is not included as an exhibit to such Form 10-K, disclosure that such report is not included and an explanation why such report is not included, (iii)(A) the registered public accounting firm attestation report for the Securities Administrator, each Servicer, each Custodian, each Subservicer engaged by a Servicer and each Servicing Function Participant utilized by a Servicer, the Securities Administrator or any Custodian, as described under Section 3.23, and (B) if any registered public accounting firm attestation report described under Section 3.23 identifies any material instance of noncompliance, disclosure identifying such instance of noncompliance, or if any such registered public accounting firm attestation report is not included as an exhibit to such Form 10-K, disclosure that such report is not included and an explanation why such report is not included, and (iv) a certification in the form attached hereto as Exhibit L, with such changes as may be necessary or appropriate as a result of changes promulgated by the Commission (the "Sarbanes Certification"), which shall be signed by the senior officer of the Depositor in charge of securitization. Any disclosure or information in addition to (i) through (iv) above that is required to be included on Form 10-K ("Additional Form 10-K Disclosure") shall be prepared by the party responsible for preparing such disclosure as set forth on Exhibit T hereto, and the Securities Administrator shall compile such disclosure pursuant to the following paragraph. The Securities Administrator will have no duty or liability for any failure hereunder to determine or prepare any Additional Form 10-K Disclosure, except as set forth in the next paragraph. As set forth on Exhibit T hereto, no later than March 1st of each year (or, in the case of each Servicer, March 5th of each year) that the Trust is subject to the Exchange Act reporting requirements, commencing in 2007, the parties to this Agreement shall be required to provide to the Securities Administrator and the Depositor, in EDGAR-compatible format, or in such other form as otherwise agreed upon by the Securities Administrator and such party, to the extent known by such applicable parties, any Additional Form 10-K Disclosure, if applicable. The Depositor will approve as to form and substance, or disapprove, as the case may be, the inclusion of the Additional Form 10-K Disclosure. The Depositor will be responsible for all reasonable fees and expenses assessed or incurred by the Securities Administrator in connection with including any Additional Form 10-K Disclosure on Form 10-K pursuant to this paragraph, including converting any such disclosure to an EDGAR-compatible format. The Securities Administrator shall compile all such information provided to it in a Form 10-K prepared by it. The Securities Administrator shall prepare and forward electronically a draft copy of the Form 10-K to the Depositor sufficiently far in advance of, but in no event less than three (3) Business Days prior to, when the Depositor is required to execute such Form 10-K to permit the Depositor to review, verify and execute such Form 10-K. No later than 5:00 p.m. EST on the 4th Business Day prior to the 10-K Filing Deadline, an officer of the Depositor shall sign the Form 10-K and return an electronic or fax copy of such signed Form 10-K (with an original executed hard copy to follow by overnight mail) to the Securities Administrator. If a Form 10-K cannot be filed on time or if a previously filed Form 10-K needs to be amended, the Securities Administrator will follow the procedures set forth in Section 8.12(f)(ii). Promptly (but in any case within one Business Day) after filing with the Commission, the Securities Administrator will make available on its internet website a final executed copy of each Form 10-K prepared and filed by the Securities Administrator. The Depositor acknowledges that the performance by the Securities Administrator of its duties under this Section 8.12(c) related to the timely preparation and filing of Form 10-K is contingent, in part, upon the Servicers (and any Subservicer or Servicing Function Participant engaged by a Servicer) and the Depositor and any other Person obligated to provide Additional Form 10-K Disclosure as set forth on Exhibit T hereto, observing all applicable deadlines in the performance of their duties under this Section 8.12(c), Section 8.12(d), Section 3.22 and Section 3.23. The Securities Administrator shall have no liability for any loss, expense, damage or claim arising out of or with respect to any failure to properly prepare and/or timely file such Form 10-K, where such failure results from the Securities Administrator's inability or failure to obtain or receive, on a timely basis, any information from any party hereto (other than the Securities Administrator or any Subcontractor utilized by the Securities Administrator) needed to prepare, arrange for execution or file such Form 10-K, not resulting from its own negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct. (d) In connection with the execution of a Sarbanes Certification, the Securities Administrator shall sign a certification (in the form attached hereto as Exhibit M, with such changes as may be necessary or appropriate as a result of changes promulgated by the Commission) for the benefit of the Depositor and its officers, directors and Affiliates, and each Servicer shall sign a certification solely with respect to such Servicer (substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit N, with such changes as may be necessary or appropriate as a result of changes promulgated by the Commission) for the benefit of the Depositor, the Securities Administrator and their respective officers, directors and Affiliates. Each such certification shall be delivered to the Depositor no later than March 10th of each year (or if such day is not a Business Day, the immediately preceding Business Day) and the Depositor shall deliver the Sarbanes Certification no later than the time set forth for the delivery to the Securities Administrator of the signed Form 10-K pursuant to Section 8.12(d) for such year. In the event that prior to the filing date of the Form 10-K in March of each year, a Servicer or the Securities Administrator has actual knowledge of information material to the Sarbanes Certification, that party shall promptly notify the Depositor and each of the other parties signing the certifications. In addition, (i) the Securities Administrator shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor and the Sponsor and their officers, directors, employees, agents and Affiliates from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon any breach of the Securities Administrator's obligations under this Section 8.12(d) or any material misstatement or material omission in (w) any compliance certificate delivered by the Securities Administrator or any Subcontractor of the Securities Administrator pursuant to Section 3.22 of this Agreement, (x) any assessment or attestation delivered by or on behalf of the Securities Administrator or any Subcontractor of the Securities Administrator pursuant to Section 3.23 of this Agreement, (y) any back-up certification in the form of Exhibit M delivered by the Securities Administrator pursuant to Section 8.12(d) of this Agreement or (z) any information about the Securities Administrator provided by it pursuant to Item 2 (Legal Proceedings) of Exhibit S, Item 1117 and Item 1119 of Exhibit T or Item 6.02 (Change of Securities Administrator) of Exhibit U (collectively, the "Securities Administrator Information"), or the Securities Administrator's negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in connection therewith, and (ii) each Servicer shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor, the Sponsor, the Securities Administrator and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents and Affiliates from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon any breach of such Servicer's obligations under this Section 8.12(d) or any material misstatement or material omission, negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of such Servicer in connection therewith. If the indemnification provided for herein is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless any indemnified party, then (i) the Securities Administrator agrees in connection with a breach of the Securities Administrator's obligations under this Section 8.12(d) or any material misstatement or material omission contained in any Securities Administrator Information, negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in connection therewith that it shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the Depositor and the Sponsor as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities of the Depositor and the Sponsor in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Depositor and the Sponsor on the one hand and the Securities Administrator on the other and (ii) each Servicer, several and not jointly, agrees that it shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities of such indemnified party in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of such indemnified party, on the one hand, and such Servicer, on the other hand, in connection with a breach of such Servicer's obligations under this Section 8.12(d) or any material misstatement or material omission, negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of such Servicer in connection therewith. (e) (i) The obligations set forth in paragraphs (a) through (d) of this Section shall only apply with respect to periods for which reports are required to be filed with respect to the Trust under the Exchange Act. Prior to January 30 of the first year in which the Securities Administrator is able to do so under applicable law, the Securities Administrator shall prepare and file a Form 15 Suspension Notification with respect to the Trust, with a copy to the Depositor. At the beginning of the immediately succeeding calendar year after the filing of a Form 15 Suspension Notification, if the number of Holders of the Offered Certificates of record exceeds the number set forth in Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act or the regulations promulgated pursuant thereto which would cause the Trust to again become subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act, the Securities Administrator shall recommence preparing and filing reports on Form 10-K, 10-D and 8-K as required pursuant to this Section 8.12 and the parties hereto shall again have the obligations set forth in this Section. (ii) In the event that the Securities Administrator is unable to timely file with the Commission all or any required portion of any Form 8-K (other than the initial Form 8-K filed by the Depositor with respect to this Agreement), 10-D or 10-K required to be filed pursuant to this Agreement because required disclosure information was either not delivered to it or delivered to it after the delivery deadlines (and the expiration of the applicable grace period with respect to such deadline prior to such failure to deliver resulting in an Event of Default) set forth in this Agreement, the Securities Administrator will promptly notify the Depositor and if necessary, or applicable, the Servicers. In the case of Form 10-D and 10-K, the Depositor, Servicers and the Securities Administrator will thereupon cooperate to prepare and file a Form 12b-25 and a 10-DA and 10-KA as applicable, pursuant to Rule 12b-25 of the Exchange Act. In the case of Form 8-K, the Securities Administrator will, upon receipt of all disclosure information required to be included on Form 8-K, include such disclosure information on the next Form 10-D. In the event that any previously filed Form 8-K, 10-D or 10-K needs to be amended, the party to this Agreement deciding that an amendment to such Form 8-K, 10-D or 10-K is required will notify the Depositor if the amendment pertains to an additional disclosure item and the Depositor will cooperate to prepare any necessary Form 8-KA, 10-DA or 10-KA. Any Form 15, Form 12b-25 or any amendment to Form 8-K, 10-D or 10-K shall be signed by an officer of the Depositor. The Depositor acknowledges that the performance by the Securities Administrator of its duties under this Section 8.12(f) related to the timely preparation and filing of Form 15, a Form 12b-25 or any amendment to Form 8-K, 10-D or 10-K is contingent upon the Servicers and the Depositor observing all applicable deadlines (and the related grace periods thereto) in the performance of their duties under this Section 8.12 and Section 3.22 and Section 3.23. The Securities Administrator shall have no liability for any loss, expense, damage, claim arising out of or with respect to any failure to properly prepare and/or timely file any such Form 15, Form 12b-25 or any amendments to Forms 8-K, 10-D or 10-K, where such failure results from the Securities Administrator's inability or failure to obtain or receive, on a timely basis, any information from any party hereto (other than the Securities Administrator or any Subcontractor utilized by the Securities Administrator) needed to prepare, arrange for execution or file such Form 15, Form 12b-25 or any amendments to Forms 8-K, 10-D or 10-K, not resulting from its own negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct. (f) On any date within four (4) Business Days after the occurrence of an event requiring disclosure on Form 8-K (each such event, a "Reportable Event"), and if requested by the Depositor, the Securities Administrator shall prepare and file on behalf of the Trust any Form 8-K, as required by the Exchange Act, provided that the Depositor shall file the initial Form 8-K in connection with the issuance of the Certificates. Any disclosure or information related to a Reportable Event or that is otherwise required to be included on Form 8-K ("Form 8-K Disclosure Information") shall be prepared by the party responsible for preparing such disclosure as set forth on Exhibit U hereto and compiled by the Securities Administrator pursuant to the following paragraph. The Securities Administrator will have no duty or liability for any failure hereunder to determine or prepare any Form 8-K Disclosure Information or any Form 8-K, except as set forth in the next paragraph. As set forth on Exhibit U hereto, for so long as the Trust is subject to the Exchange Act reporting requirements, no later than noon Eastern Time on the 2nd Business Day after the occurrence of a Reportable Event, the parties to this Agreement shall be required to provide to the Depositor and the Securities Administrator, in EDGAR-compatible format, or in such other form as otherwise agreed upon by the Securities Administrator and such party, to the extent known by such applicable parties, any Form 8-K Disclosure Information, if applicable. The Depositor will be responsible for all reasonable fees and expenses assessed or incurred by the Securities Administrator in connection with including any Form 8-K Disclosure Information on Form 8-K pursuant to this paragraph, including the conversion of any such disclosure into an EDGAR-compatible format. The Depositor will approve as to form and substance, or disapprove, as the case may be, the inclusion of the Form 8-K Disclosure Information. (g) The Securities Administrator shall prepare and forward electronically a draft copy of the Form 8-K to the Depositor sufficiently far in advance of, but in no event later than noon (Eastern Standard Time) on the 3rd Business Day after a Reportable Event, when the Depositor is required to execute such Form 8-K to permit the Depositor to review, verify and execute such Form 8-K. No later than noon Eastern Time on the 4th Business Day after the Reportable Event, an officer of the Depositor shall sign the Form 8-K and return an electronic or fax copy of such signed Form 8-K (with an original executed hard copy to follow by overnight mail) to the Securities Administrator. If a Form 8-K cannot be filed on time or if a previously filed Form 8-K needs to be amended, the Securities Administrator will follow the procedures set forth in Section 8.12(e)(ii). Promptly (but in any case within one Business Day) after filing with the Commission, the Securities Administrator will, make available on its internet website a final executed copy of each Form 8-K prepared and filed by the Securities Administrator. The Depositor acknowledges that the performance by the Securities Administrator of its duties under this Section 8.12(g) related to the timely preparation and filing of Form 8-K is contingent, in part, upon the Servicers, the Depositor and any other Person obligated to provide Form 8-K Disclosure Information as set forth on Exhibit U hereto, observing all applicable deadlines in the performance of their duties under this Section 8.12(f). The Securities Administrator shall have no liability for any loss, expense, damage or claim arising out of or with respect to any failure to properly prepare and/or timely file such Form 8-K, where such failure results from the Securities Administrator's inability or failure to obtain or receive, on a timely basis, any information from any party hereto (other than the Securities Administrator or any Subcontractor utilized by the Securities Administrator) needed to prepare, arrange for execution or file such Form 8-K, not resulting from its own negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct. (h) The Securities Administrator shall have no liability for any loss, expense, damage or claim arising out of or resulting from (i) the accuracy or inaccuracy of any Additional Form 10-D Disclosure, Additional Form 10-K Disclosure or Form 8-K Disclosure Information (excluding any information therein provided by the Securities Administrator or any Subcontractor utilized by the Securities Administrator) provided to the Securities Administrator in connection with the preparation of Forms 10-D, 10-K and 8-K pursuant to this Section 8.12, or (ii) the failure of the Depositor to timely execute and return for filing any Forms 10-D, 10-K and 8-K required to be filed by the Securities Administrator pursuant to this Section 8.12, in either case, not resulting from the Securities Administrator's own negligence, bad faith or misconduct. Section 8.13 Tax Treatment of Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts, Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and Class IO Shortfalls; Tax Classification of the Excess Reserve Fund Account, Swap Account and the Interest Rate Swap Agreement. For federal income tax purposes, the Securities Administrator shall treat the Excess Reserve Fund Account and the Swap Account as beneficially owned by the holders of the Class X Certificates and shall treat such portion of the Trust Fund as a grantor trust, within the meaning of subpart E, Part I of subchapter J of the Code. The Securities Administrator shall treat the rights that each Class of Offered Certificates has to receive payments of Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts, and to the extent not paid from the Excess Reserve Fund Account, Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts and, without duplication, Upper Tier CarryForward Amounts from the Swap Account (together with Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts from the Excess Reserve Fund Account) as rights to receive payments under an interest rate cap contract written by the Class X Certificateholder in favor of each such Class and beneficially owned by each such Class through the grantor trust. Accordingly, each Class of Certificates (excluding the Class X, Class P and Class R Certificates) will be comprised of two components - an Upper-Tier Regular Interest and an interest in an interest rate cap contract, and the Class X Certificates will be comprised of four components - two Upper-Tier Regular Interests (the Class X Interest and the Class IO Interest), an interest in the Excess Reserve Fund Account, subject to obligation to pay Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts, and ownership of the Swap Account and the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, subject to the obligation to pay Upper-Tier CarryForward Amounts including, but without duplication, Basis Risk CarryForward Amounts. The Securities Administrator shall allocate the issue price for a Class of Certificates among the respective components for purposes of determining the issue price of the Upper-Tier Regular Interest component based on information received from the Depositor. Unless otherwise advised by the Depositor in writing, for federal income tax purposes, the Securities Administrator is hereby directed to assign a value of zero to the right of each Holder of an Offered Certificate to receive the related Upper-Tier CarryForward Amount and, without duplication, the related Basis Risk CarryForward Amount for purposes of allocating the purchase price of an Offered Certificate acquired by an initial Holder thereof between such right and the related Upper-Tier Regular Interest. Holders of Offered Certificates shall also be treated as having agreed to pay, on each Distribution Date, to the Holders of the Class X Certificates an aggregate amount equal to the excess, if any, of (i) Net Swap Payments and Swap Termination Payments (other than Defaulted Swap Termination Payments) over (ii) the sum of amounts payable on the Class X Interest available for such payments and amounts payable on the Class IO Interest (such excess, a "Class IO Shortfall"), first from interest and then from principal distributable on the Offered Certificates. A Class IO Shortfall payable from interest collections shall be allocated pro rata among such Offered Certificates based on the amount of interest otherwise payable to such Class of Offered Certificates, and a Class IO Shortfall payable from principal collections shall be allocated in reverse sequential order beginning with the most subordinate Class of Offered Certificates then Outstanding. Any payments of Class IO Shortfalls shall be treated for tax purposes as having been received by the Holders of such Class of Offered Certificates in respect of the corresponding Upper-Tier Regular Interest and as having been paid by such Holders to the Holders of the Class X Certificates through the Swap Account. In the event any class of Upper-Tier Regular Interest corresponding to a class of Offered Certificates is subject to the Upper-Tier REMIC Loan Group I Rate, the Upper-Tier REMIC Loan Group II Rate or the Upper-Tier REMIC WAC Rate, and such rate exceeds the applicable Pass-Through Rate of the Corresponding Class of Certificates as a result of a Swap Termination Payment or otherwise, such excess shall be deemed first paid to the related Upper-Tier Regular Interest and then paid to the Class X Certificates in a manner analogous to Class IO Shortfalls. Section 8.14 Custodial Responsibilities. (a) Each Custodian shall provide access to the Mortgage Loan Documents in possession of such Custodian regarding the related Mortgage Loans and REO Property and the servicing thereof to the Trustee, the Certificateholders, the FDIC, and the supervisory agents and examiners of the FDIC, such access being afforded only upon two (2) Business Days' prior written request and during normal business hours at the office of the applicable Custodian. Each Custodian shall allow representatives of the above entities to photocopy any of the records and documentation and shall provide equipment for that purpose at the expense of the person requesting such access. Upon receipt of a written request made by a Servicer in the form of the Request for Release, the applicable Custodian shall release within five Business Days the related Mortgage File in accordance with Section 3.16. (b) Each Custodian and any of its respective directors, officers, employees or agents shall be indemnified by the Trust Fund and held harmless against any loss, liability, or expense (including reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with any claim or legal action relating to this Agreement or the performance of any of the Custodian's duties under this Agreement other than any loss, liability, or expense incurred (i) resulting from any breach of a Servicer's obligations in connection with this Agreement for which such Servicer has performed its obligations to indemnify the Custodians pursuant to Section 6.05, (ii) resulting from any breach of the applicable Responsible Party's obligations in connection with this Agreement for which the applicable Responsible Party has performed its obligations to indemnify the Custodians pursuant to Section 2.03(k), or (iii) because of willful misfeasance, bad faith, or negligence in the performance of any of the Custodian's duties under this Agreement. This indemnity shall survive the termination of this Agreement or the earlier resignation or removal of the Custodian. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or a separate letter agreement between the Depositor and the applicable Custodian, such Custodian shall not be entitled to payment or reimbursement for any routine ongoing expenses incurred by such Custodian in the ordinary course of its duties as Custodian under this Agreement or for any other expenses incurred by the Custodian; provided, however, that no expense shall be reimbursed by the Trust Fund under this Agreement if it would not constitute an "unanticipated expense incurred by the REMIC" within the meaning of the REMIC Provisions. (c) Each Custodian may resign from its obligations hereunder upon 60 days' prior written notice to the Trustee, the Depositor and the Servicers. Such resignation shall take effect upon (i) the appointment of a successor Custodian reasonably acceptable to the Trustee within such 60 day period; and (ii) delivery of all Custodial Files to the successor Custodian. The Trustee shall have the right, but not the obligation, to become the successor Custodian. If no successor Custodian is appointed within 60 days after written notice of the applicable Custodian's resignation is received by the Trustee, such Custodian may petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint a successor Custodian. Upon such resignation and appointment of successor Custodian, the applicable Custodian shall, at such Custodian's expense (unless for nonpayment, then at the expense of the Trust), promptly transfer to the successor Custodian, as directed in writing by the Trustee, all Mortgage Files being administered under this Agreement. (d) For so long as reports are required to be filed with the Commission under the Exchange Act with respect to the Trust, the Custodians shall not utilize any Subcontractor for the performance of its duties hereunder if such Subcontractor would be "participating in the servicing function" within the meaning of Item 1122 of Regulation AB. Each Custodian shall indemnify the Depositor, the Sponsor and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Depositor or the Sponsor and hold them harmless against any and all claims, losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments, and any other costs, fees and expenses that any of them may sustain in any way related to the breach by the applicable Custodian of its obligation set forth in the preceding sentence or the failure of any Custodian to perform any of its obligations under Section 3.23. This indemnity shall survive the termination of this Agreement or the earlier resignation or removal of the Custodian. (e) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, no Custodian shall be required to deliver, or to cause to be delivered, information relating to Item 1117 of Regulation AB pursuant to Sections 8.12(b) and (c) and Exhibits S and T to this Agreement for any reporting period of the Trust in which the Custodian's Weighted Average Percentage is less than 20%. The "Custodian's Weighted Average Percentage" means, for the applicable reporting period of the Trust and each Custodian, the quotient, expressed as a percentage, of (A) the aggregate of the Stated Principal Balance for each Distribution Date in such reporting period of the Mortgage Loans for which such Custodian acted as Custodian divided by (B) the aggregate of the Pool Stated Principal Balance for each Distribution Date in such reporting period.

The Depositor shall appoint a successor to the Securities Administrator in accordance with Section 9.07. The Trustee shall notify the Rating Agencies of any change of Securities Administrator. Section 9.07 Resignation and Removal of Securities Administrator. The Securities Administrator may at any time resign by giving written notice of resignation to the Depositor and the Trustee and each Rating Agency not less than 60 days before the date specified in such notice when, subject to Section 9.08, such resignation is to take effect, and acceptance by a successor Securities Administrator in accordance with Section 9.08 meeting the qualifications set forth in Section 9.06. If no successor Securities Administrator meeting such qualifications shall have been so appointed by the Depositor and have accepted appointment within 30 days after the giving of such notice of resignation, the resigning Securities Administrator may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Securities Administrator. If at any time the Securities Administrator shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of Section 9.06 hereof and shall fail to resign after written request thereto by the Depositor, or if at any time the Securities Administrator shall become incapable of acting, or shall be adjudged as bankrupt or insolvent, or a receiver of the Securities Administrator or of its property shall be appointed, or any public officer shall take charge or control of the Securities Administrator or of its property or affairs for the purpose of rehabilitation, conservation or liquidation, or a tax is imposed with respect to the Trust Fund by any state in which the Securities Administrator or the Trust Fund is located and the imposition of such tax would be avoided by the appointment of a different Securities Administrator, then the Depositor may remove the Securities Administrator and appoint a successor Securities Administrator by written instrument, in triplicate, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the Securities Administrator so removed, one copy of which shall be delivered to the Master Servicer and one copy to the successor Securities Administrator. The Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 51% of the Voting Rights may at any time remove the Securities Administrator and appoint a successor Securities Administrator by written instrument or instruments, in triplicate, signed by such Holders or their attorneys in fact duly authorized, one complete set of which instruments shall be delivered by the successor Securities Administrator to the Trustee, one complete set to the Securities Administrator so removed and one complete set to the successor so appointed. Notice of any removal of the Securities Administrator shall be given to each Rating Agency by the successor Securities Administrator. Any resignation or removal of the Securities Administrator and appointment of a successor Securities Administrator pursuant to any of the provisions of this Section 9.07 shall become effective upon acceptance by the successor Securities Administrator of appointment as provided in Section 9.08 hereof. Section 9.08 Successor Securities Administrator. Any successor Securities Administrator (which may be the Trustee) appointed as provided in Section 9.07 hereof shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Depositor and to its predecessor Securities Administrator and the Trustee an instrument accepting such appointment hereunder and thereupon the resignation or removal of the predecessor Securities Administrator shall become effective and such successor Securities Administrator, without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall become fully vested with all the rights, powers, duties and obligations of its predecessor hereunder, with the like effect as if originally named as Securities Administrator herein. The Depositor, the Trustee, the Master Servicer and the predecessor Securities Administrator shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things as may reasonably be required for more fully and certainly vesting and confirming in the successor Securities Administrator all such rights, powers, duties, and obligations. No successor Securities Administrator shall accept appointment as provided in this Section 9.08 unless at the time of such acceptance such successor Securities Administrator shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 9.06 hereof and its appointment shall not adversely affect the then current rating of the Certificates, as confirmed in writing by each Rating Agency. Upon acceptance by a successor Securities Administrator of appointment as provided in this Section 9.08, the Depositor shall mail notice of the succession of such Securities Administrator hereunder to all Holders of Certificates. If the Depositor fails to mail such notice within 10 days after acceptance by the successor Securities Administrator of appointment, the successor Securities Administrator shall cause such notice to be mailed at the expense of the Depositor. Section 9.09 Merger or Consolidation of Securities Administrator. Any corporation or other entity into which the Securities Administrator may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated or any corporation or other entity resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Securities Administrator shall be a party, or any corporation or other entity succeeding to the business of the Securities Administrator, shall be the successor of the Securities Administrator hereunder, provided that such corporation or other entity shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 9.06 hereof, without the execution or filing of any paper or further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding. Section 9.10 Assignment or Delegation of Duties by the Securities Administrator. Except as expressly provided herein, the Securities Administrator shall not assign or transfer any of its rights, benefits or privileges hereunder to any other Person, or delegate to or subcontract with, or authorize or appoint any other Person to perform any of the duties, covenants or obligations to be performed by the Securities Administrator; provided, however, that the Securities Administrator shall have the right with the prior written consent of the Depositor (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), and upon delivery to the Trustee and the Depositor of a letter from each Rating Agency to the effect that such action shall not result in a downgrade of the ratings assigned to any of the Certificates, to delegate or assign to or subcontract with or authorize or appoint any qualified Person to perform and carry out any duties, covenants or obligations to be performed and carried out by the Securities Administrator hereunder. Notice of such permitted assignment shall be given promptly by the Securities Administrator to the Depositor and the Trustee. If, pursuant to any provision hereof, the duties of the Securities Administrator are transferred to a successor securities administrator, the entire compensation payable to the Securities Administrator pursuant hereto shall thereafter be payable to such successor securities administrator but in no event shall the fee payable to the successor Securities Administrator exceed that payable to the predecessor Securities Administrator. ARTICLE X TERMINATION Section 10.01 Termination upon Liquidation or Purchase of the Mortgage Loans. Subject to Section 10.03, the obligations and responsibilities of the Depositor, the Servicers, the Securities Administrator and the Trustee created hereby with respect to the Trust Fund shall terminate upon the earlier of (a) the purchase, on or after the Optional Termination Date, by any Servicer individually, or all of the Servicers together, of all Mortgage Loans (and REO Properties) at the price equal to the sum of (i) 100% of the unpaid principal balance of each Mortgage Loan (other than in respect of REO Property) plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon at the applicable Mortgage Rate, (ii) the lesser of (x) the appraised value of any REO Property as determined by the higher of two appraisals completed by two independent appraisers selected by such Servicer(s) at the expense of such Servicer(s), plus accrued and unpaid interest on each Mortgage Loan at the applicable Mortgage Rate and (y) the unpaid principal balance of each Mortgage Loan related to any REO Property, in each case plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon at the applicable Mortgage Rate, and (iii) any Swap Termination Payment owed to the Swap Provider pursuant to the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, and (b) the later of (i) the maturity or other liquidation (or any Advance with respect thereto) of the last Mortgage Loan remaining in the Trust Fund and the disposition of all REO Property and (ii) the distribution to Certificateholders of all amounts required to be distributed to them pursuant to this Agreement. In no event shall the trusts created hereby continue beyond the expiration of 21 years from the death of the survivor of the descendants of Joseph P. Kennedy, the late Ambassador of the United States to the Court of St. James's, living on the date hereof. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no such purchase shall be permitted, unless (i) after distribution of the proceeds thereof to the Certificateholders (other than the Holders of the Class X, Class P and Residual Certificates) pursuant to Section 10.02, the distribution of the remaining proceeds to the Class X and Class P Certificates is sufficient to pay the outstanding principal amount of and accrued and unpaid interest on the NIM Securities, to the extent the NIM Securities are then outstanding, or (ii) prior to such purchase, the purchasing Servicer(s) shall have deposited in the related Collection Account an amount to be remitted to the NIM Trustee that, together with such remaining proceeds, will be sufficient to pay the outstanding principal amount of and accrued and unpaid interest on the NIM Securities, to the extent the NIM Securities are then outstanding. Section 10.02 Final Distribution on the Certificates. If on any Remittance Date, the Servicers determines that there are no Outstanding Mortgage Loans and no other funds or assets in the Trust Fund other than the funds in the Collection Account, the Servicers shall direct the Securities Administrator promptly to send a Notice of Final Distribution to each Certificateholder and the Swap Provider. If any Servicer individually elects to terminate the Trust Fund pursuant to clause (a) of Section 10.01, such Servicer shall notify the other Servicer of such election by the 15th day of the month preceding the month of the final distribution and the other Servicer shall have 5 days to elect, by notice to the other Servicer, to purchase the Mortgage Loans it services. If any Servicer or all of the Servicers so elect to terminate the Trust Fund pursuant to clause (a) of Section 10.01, by the 25th day of the month preceding the month of the final distribution, such Servicer or Servicers shall notify the Depositor and the Securities Administrator of the date such Servicer or Servicers intend to terminate the Trust Fund and of the applicable repurchase price of the Mortgage Loans and REO Properties. A Notice of Final Distribution, specifying the Distribution Date on which Certificateholders may surrender their Certificates for payment of the final distribution and cancellation, shall be given promptly by the Securities Administrator by letter to Certificateholders mailed not earlier than the 10th day and not later than the 15th day of the month of such final distribution. Any such Notice of Final Distribution shall specify (a) the Distribution Date upon which final distribution on the Certificates will be made upon presentation and surrender of Certificates at the office therein designated, (b) the amount of such final distribution, (c) the location of the office or agency at which such presentation and surrender must be made, and (d) that the Record Date otherwise applicable to such Distribution Date is not applicable, distributions being made only upon presentation and surrender of the Certificates at the office therein specified. The Securities Administrator will give such Notice of Final Distribution to each Rating Agency at the time such Notice of Final Distribution is given to Certificateholders. In the event such Notice of Final Distribution is given, each Servicer shall cause all funds in the Collection Account to be remitted to the Securities Administrator for deposit in the Distribution Account on the Business Day prior to the applicable Distribution Date in an amount equal to the final distribution in respect of the Certificates. Upon such final deposit with respect to the Trust Fund and the receipt by the applicable Custodian of a Request for Release therefor, the applicable Custodian shall promptly release to the applicable Servicer the Custodial Files for the Mortgage Loans. Upon presentation and surrender of the Certificates, the Securities Administrator shall cause to be distributed to the Certificateholders of each Class (after reimbursement of all amounts due to the Servicers, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator and the Trustee hereunder), in each case on the final Distribution Date and in the order set forth in Section 4.02, in proportion to their respective Percentage Interests, with respect to Certificateholders of the same Class, up to an amount equal to (i) as to each Class of Regular Certificates (except the Class X Certificates), the Certificate Balance thereof plus for each such Class and the Class X Certificates accrued interest thereon in the case of an interest-bearing Certificate and all other amounts to which such Classes are entitled pursuant to Section 4.02 and (ii) as to the Residual Certificates, the amount, if any, which remains on deposit in the Distribution Account (other than the amounts retained to meet claims) after application pursuant to clause (i) above. In the event that any affected Certificateholders shall not surrender Certificates for cancellation within six months after the date specified in the above mentioned written notice, the Securities Administrator shall give a second written notice to the remaining Certificateholders to surrender their Certificates for cancellation and receive the final distribution with respect thereto. If within six months after the second notice all the applicable Certificates shall not have been surrendered for cancellation, the Securities Administrator may take appropriate steps, or may appoint an agent to take appropriate steps, to contact the remaining Certificateholders concerning surrender of their Certificates, and the cost thereof shall be paid out of the funds and other assets which remain a part of the Trust Fund. If within one year after the second notice all Certificates shall not have been surrendered for cancellation, the Class R Certificateholders shall be entitled to all unclaimed funds and other assets of the Trust Fund which remain subject hereto. Section 10.03 Additional Termination Requirements. In the event the applicable Servicer or all of the Servicers exercise their purchase option with respect to the Mortgage Loans as provided in Section 10.01, the Trust Fund shall be terminated in accordance with the following additional requirements, unless the Trustee has been supplied with an Opinion of Counsel, at the expense of the applicable Servicer or all of the Servicers, as the case may be, to the effect that the failure to comply with the requirements of this Section 10.03 will not (i) result in the imposition of taxes on "prohibited transactions" on any Trust REMIC as defined in Section 860F of the Code, or (ii) cause any Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any Certificates are Outstanding: (a) The Securities Administrator shall sell all of the assets of the Trust Fund to the applicable Servicer and, no later than the next Distribution Date after such sale, shall distribute to the Certificateholders the proceeds of such sale in complete liquidation of each Trust REMIC; and (b) The Securities Administrator shall attach a statement to the final federal income tax return for each Trust REMIC stating that pursuant to Treasury Regulations Section 1.860F-1, the first day of the 90-day liquidation period for each such Trust REMIC was the date on which the Securities Administrator sold the assets of the Trust Fund to the applicable Servicer or Servicers, as the case may be. ARTICLE XI MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS Section 11.01 Amendment. This Agreement may be amended from time to time by the Depositor, the Servicers, the Securities Administrator, the Responsible Parties, the Custodians and the Trustee without the consent of any of the Certificateholders (i) to cure any ambiguity or mistake, (ii) to correct any defective provision herein or to supplement any provision herein which may be inconsistent with any other provision herein, (iii) to add to the duties of the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, the Custodians or the Servicers, (iv) to add any other provisions with respect to matters or questions arising hereunder or (v) to modify, alter, amend, add to or rescind any of the terms or provisions contained in this Agreement; provided that any amendment pursuant to clauses (iv) or (v) above shall not, as evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel (which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Trustee, the Securities Administrator or the Trust Fund), adversely affect in any material respect the interests of any Certificateholder; and provided, further, that any such amendment pursuant to clause (iv) or (v) above shall not be deemed to adversely affect in any material respect the interests of the Certificateholders if the Person requesting the amendment obtains a letter from each Rating Agency stating that the amendment would not result in the downgrading or withdrawal of the respective ratings then assigned to the Certificates; it being understood and agreed that any such letter in and of itself will not represent a determination as to the materiality of any such amendment and will represent a determination only as to the credit issues affecting any such rating. The Trustee, the Custodians, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, the Responsible Parties and the Servicers also may at any time and from time to time amend this Agreement, but without the consent of the Certificateholders to modify, eliminate or add to any of its provisions to such extent as shall be necessary or helpful to (i) maintain the qualification of each Trust REMIC under the Code, (ii) avoid or minimize the risk of the imposition of any tax on any Trust REMIC pursuant to the Code that would be a claim at any time prior to the final redemption of the Certificates or (iii) comply with any other requirements of the Code; provided that the Trustee has been provided an Opinion of Counsel, which opinion shall be an expense of the party requesting such opinion but in any case shall not be an expense of the Trustee or the Trust Fund, to the effect that such action is necessary or helpful to, as applicable, (i) maintain such qualification, (ii) avoid or minimize the risk of the imposition of such a tax or (iii) comply with any such requirements of the Code. This Agreement may also be amended from time to time by the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers, the Responsible Parties, the Custodians and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of Certificates evidencing Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 66(2)/3% of each Class of Certificates affected thereby for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions of this Agreement or of modifying in any manner the rights of the Holders of Certificates; provided, however, that no such amendment shall (i) reduce in any manner the amount of, or delay the timing of, payments required to be distributed on any Certificate without the consent of the Holder of such Certificate, (ii) adversely affect in any material respect the interests of the Holders of any Class of Certificates in a manner other than as described in clause (i), without the consent of the Holders of Certificates of such Class evidencing, as to such Class, Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 66(2)/3%, or (iii) reduce the aforesaid percentages of Certificates the Holders of which are required to consent to any such amendment, without the consent of the Holders of all such Certificates then Outstanding. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of this Agreement, the Trustee shall not consent to any amendment to this Agreement unless (i) it shall have first received an Opinion of Counsel, which opinion shall not be an expense of the Trustee or the Trust Fund, to the effect that such amendment will not cause the imposition of any tax on any Trust REMIC or the Certificateholders or cause any such Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC or the grantor trust to fail to qualify as a grantor trust at any time that any Certificates are Outstanding and (ii) the party seeking such amendment shall have provided written notice to the Rating Agencies (with a copy of such notice to the Trustee) of such amendment, stating the provisions of the Agreement to be amended. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 11.01, with respect to any amendment that significantly modifies the permitted activities of the Trustee or the Servicers, any Certificate beneficially owned by the Depositor shall be deemed not to be Outstanding (and shall not be considered when determining the percentage of Certificateholders consenting or when calculating the total number of Certificates entitled to consent) for purposes of determining if the requisite consents of Certificateholders under this Section 11.01 have been obtained. Promptly after the execution of any amendment to this Agreement requiring the consent of Certificateholders, the Trustee shall furnish written notification of the substance or a copy of such amendment to each Certificateholder and each Rating Agency. It shall not be necessary for the consent of Certificateholders under this Section 11.01 to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment, but it shall be sufficient if such consent shall approve the substance thereof. The manner of obtaining such consents and of evidencing the authorization of the execution thereof by Certificateholders shall be subject to such reasonable regulations as the Trustee may prescribe. Nothing in this Agreement shall require the Trustee or the Securities Administrator to enter into an amendment without receiving an Opinion of Counsel (which Opinion shall not be an expense of the Trustee, the Securities Administrator or the Trust Fund), satisfactory to the Trustee or the Securities Administrator that (i) such amendment is permitted and is not prohibited by this Agreement and that all requirements for amending this Agreement have been complied with (including the obtaining of any required consents); and (ii) either (A) the amendment does not adversely affect in any material respect the interests of any Certificateholder or (B) the conclusion set forth in the immediately preceding clause (A) is not required to be reached pursuant to this Section 11.01. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any amendment to this Agreement shall require the prior written consent of the Swap Provider if such amendment materially and adversely affects the rights or interests of the Swap Provider. Section 11.02 Recordation of Agreement; Counterparts. This Agreement is subject to recordation in all appropriate public offices for real property records in all the counties or other comparable jurisdictions in which any or all of the Mortgaged Properties are situated, and in any other appropriate public recording office or elsewhere, such recordation to be effected by the applicable Servicer at the direction and expense of the Depositor, but only upon receipt of an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such recordation materially and beneficially affects the interests of the Certificateholders. For the purpose of facilitating the recordation of this Agreement as herein provided and for other purposes, this Agreement may be executed simultaneously in any number of counterparts, each of which counterparts shall be deemed to be an original, and such counterparts shall constitute but one and the same instrument. Section 11.03 Governing Law. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH AND GOVERNED BY THE SUBSTANTIVE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPLICABLE TO AGREEMENTS MADE AND TO BE PERFORMED IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HERETO AND THE CERTIFICATEHOLDERS SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS. Section 11.04 Intention of Parties. It is the express intent of the parties hereto that the conveyance (i) of the Mortgage Loans by the Depositor and (ii) of the Trust Fund by the Depositor to the Trustee each be, and be construed as, an absolute sale thereof. It is, further, not the intention of the parties that such conveyances be deemed a pledge thereof. However, in the event that, notwithstanding the intent of the parties, such assets are held to be the property of the Depositor, as the case may be, or if for any other reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create a security interest in either such assets, then (i) this Agreement shall be deemed to be a security agreement within the meaning of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of New York and (ii) the conveyances provided for in this Agreement shall be deemed to be an assignment and a grant by the Depositor to the Trustee, for the benefit of the Certificateholders, of a security interest in all of the assets transferred, whether now owned or hereafter acquired. The Depositor, for the benefit of the Certificateholders, shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such actions as may be necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were deemed to create a security interest in the Trust Fund, such security interest would be deemed to be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of the Agreement. The Depositor shall arrange for filing any Uniform Commercial Code continuation statements in connection with any security interest granted or assigned to the Trustee for the benefit of the Certificateholders. Section 11.05 Notices.

Section 11.06 Severability of Provisions. If any one or more of the covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement shall be for any reason whatsoever held invalid, then such covenants, agreements, provisions or terms shall be deemed severable from the remaining covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement and shall in no way affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions of this Agreement or of the Certificates or the rights of the Holders thereof. Section 11.07 Assignment; Sales; Advance Facilities. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, except as provided in Section 6.04, this Agreement may not be assigned by any Servicer without the prior written consent of the Trustee and the Depositor; provided, however, each Servicer is hereby authorized to enter into an Advance Facility under which (l) such Servicer sells, assigns or pledges to an Advancing Person the Servicer's rights under this Agreement to be reimbursed for any P&I Advances or Servicing Advances and/or (2) an Advancing Person agrees to fund some or all P&I Advances or Servicing Advances required to be made by such Servicer pursuant to this Agreement. No consent of the Trustee, Certificateholders or any other party is required before a Servicer may enter into an Advance Facility. Notwithstanding the existence of any Advance Facility under which an Advancing Person agrees to fund P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances on a Servicer's behalf, such Servicer shall remain obligated pursuant to this Agreement to make P&I Advances and Servicing Advances pursuant to and as required by this Agreement, and shall not be relieved of such obligations by virtue of such Advance Facility. Reimbursement amounts shall consist solely of amounts in respect of P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances made with respect to the Mortgage Loans for which a Servicer would be permitted to reimburse itself in accordance with this Agreement, assuming such Servicer had made the related P&I Advance(s) and/or Servicing Advance(s). The applicable Servicer shall maintain and provide to any successor servicer a detailed accounting on a loan-by-loan basis as to amounts advanced by, pledged or assigned to, and reimbursed to any Advancing Person. The successor servicer shall be entitled to rely on any such information provided by the predecessor Servicer, and the successor servicer shall not be liable for any errors in such information. An Advancing Person who purchases or receives an assignment or pledge of the rights to be reimbursed for P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances, and/or whose obligations hereunder are limited to the funding of P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances shall not be required to meet the criteria for qualification of a Subservicer set forth in this Agreement. The documentation establishing any Advance Facility shall require that reimbursement amounts distributed with respect to each Mortgage Loan be allocated to outstanding unreimbursed P&I Advances or Servicing Advances (as the case may be) made with respect to that Mortgage Loan on a "first-in, first out" (FIFO) basis. Such documentation shall also require the applicable Servicer to provide to the related Advancing Person or its designee loan-by-loan information with respect to each such reimbursement amount distributed to such Advancing Person or Advance Facility trustee on each Distribution Date, to enable the Advancing Person or Advance Facility trustee to make the FIFO allocation of each such reimbursement amount with respect to each applicable Mortgage Loan. The applicable Servicer shall remain entitled to be reimbursed by the Advancing Person or Advance Facility trustee for all P&I Advances and Servicing Advances funded by such Servicer to the extent the related rights to be reimbursed therefor have not been sold, assigned or pledged to an Advancing Person. Any amendment to this Section 11.07 or to any other provision of this Agreement that may be necessary or appropriate to effect the terms of an Advance Facility as described generally in this Section 11.07, including amendments to add provisions relating to a successor servicer, may be entered into by the Trustee, the Depositor, the Securities Administrator, the Responsible Parties, the Custodians and the Servicers without the consent of any Certificateholder, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, upon receipt by the Trustee of an Opinion of Counsel that such amendment has no material adverse effect on the Certificateholders or written confirmation from the Rating Agencies that such amendment will not adversely affect the ratings on the Certificates. Prior to entering into an Advance Facility, the applicable Servicer shall notify the lender under such facility in writing that: (a) the Advances financed by and/or pledged to the lender are obligations owed to such Servicer on a non-recourse basis payable only from the cash flows and proceeds received under this Agreement for reimbursement of Advances only to the extent provided herein, and none of the Trustee, the Securities Administrator and the Trust are otherwise obligated or liable to repay any Advances financed by the lender; (b) such Servicer will be responsible for remitting to the lender the applicable amounts collected by it as reimbursement for Advances funded by the lender, subject to the restrictions and priorities created in this Agreement; and (c) neither the Securities Administrator nor the Trustee shall have any responsibility to track or monitor the administration of the financing arrangement between the applicable Servicer and the lender. Section 11.08 Limitation on Rights of Certificateholders.

Where required by state law or regulation, the Mortgagor has been given the opportunity to choose the carrier of the required mortgage title insurance.

The Seller has not advanced funds, or induced, solicited or knowingly received any advance of funds by a party other than the Mortgagor, directly or indirectly, for the payment of any amount required under the Mortgage Loan, except for interest accruing from the date of the Mortgage Note or date of disbursement of the Mortgage Loan proceeds, whichever is earlier, to the day which precedes by one month the related Due Date of the first installment of principal and interest; (d) Original Terms Unmodified. The terms of the Mortgage Note and Mortgage have not been impaired, waived, altered or modified in any respect, from the date of origination except by a written instrument which has been recorded, if necessary to protect the interests of the Purchaser, and which has been delivered to the Custodian or to such other Person as the Purchaser shall designate in writing, and the terms of which are reflected in the related Mortgage Loan Schedule. The substance of any such waiver, alteration or modification has been approved by the title insurer, if any, to the extent required by the policy, and its terms are reflected on the related Mortgage Loan Schedule, if applicable.

The Mortgage Loan is not subject to any right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense, including without limitation the defense of usury, nor will the operation of any of the terms of the Mortgage Note or the Mortgage, or the exercise of any right thereunder, render either the Mortgage Note or the Mortgage unenforceable, in whole or in part and no such right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense has been asserted with respect thereto, and no Mortgagor was a debtor in any state or Federal bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding at the time the Mortgage Loan was originated; (f) Hazard Insurance.

Unless otherwise specified on the related Mortgage Loan Schedule, the Mortgage Loan is payable on the first day of each month. The Mortgage Loan does not require a balloon payment on its stated maturity date, unless otherwise specified in the related Mortgage Loan Schedule; (u) Customary Provisions.

The Assignment of Mortgage (except with respect to any Mortgage that has been recorded in the name of MERS or its designee) with respect to each Mortgage Loan is in recordable form and is acceptable for recording under the laws of the jurisdiction in which the Mortgaged Property is located. The transfer, assignment and conveyance of the Mortgage Notes and the Mortgages by the Seller are not subject to the bulk transfer or similar statutory provisions in effect in any applicable jurisdiction; (dd) Due-On-Sale.

The consolidated principal amount does not exceed the original principal amount of the Mortgage Loan; (hh) Mortgaged Property Undamaged; No Condemnation Proceedings. There is no proceeding pending or threatened for the total or partial condemnation of the Mortgaged Property.

No predatory or deceptive lending practices, including, without limitation, the extension of credit without regard to the ability of the Mortgagor to repay and the extension of credit which has no apparent benefit to the Mortgagor, were employed in the origination of the Mortgage Loan; (ddd) Recordation. Each original Mortgage was recorded and all subsequent assignments of the original Mortgage (other than the assignment to the Purchaser) have been recorded in the appropriate jurisdictions wherein such recordation is necessary to perfect the lien thereof as against creditors of the Seller, or is in the process of being recorded; (eee) Mortgagor Bankruptcy. On or prior to the date 60 days after the related Closing Date, the Mortgagor has not filed and will not file a bankruptcy petition or has not become the subject and will not become the subject of involuntary bankruptcy proceedings or has not consented to or will not consent to the filing of a bankruptcy proceeding against it or to a receiver being appointed in respect of the related Mortgaged Property; (fff) No Prior Offer. The Mortgage Loan has not previously been offered for sale; (ggg) Fannie Mae Guides Anti-Predatory Lending Eligibility. Each Mortgage Loan is in compliance with the anti-predatory lending eligibility for purchase requirements of Fannie Mae Guides. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (hhh) Mortgagor Selection. No Mortgagor was encouraged or required to select a Mortgage Loan product offered by the Originator which is a higher cost product designed for less creditworthy mortgagors, unless at the time of the Mortgage Loan's origination, such Mortgagor did not qualify taking into account credit history and debt-to-income ratios for a lower-cost credit product then offered by the Originator or any Affiliate of the Originator. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (iii) Underwriting Methodology. The methodology used in underwriting the extension of credit for each Mortgage Loan employs objective mathematical principles which relate the related Mortgagor's income, assets and liabilities to the proposed payment and such underwriting methodology does not rely on the extent of the related Mortgagor's equity in the collateral as the principal determining factor in approving such credit extension. Such underwriting methodology confirmed that at the time of origination (application/approval) the related Mortgagor had a reasonable ability to make timely payments on the Mortgage Loan. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (jjj) Mortgage Loans with Prepayment Premiums. With respect to any Mortgage Loan that contains a provision permitting imposition of a premium upon a prepayment prior to maturity: (i) prior to the Mortgage Loan's origination, the related Mortgagor agreed to such premium in exchange for a monetary benefit, including but not limited to a rate or fee reduction, (ii) prior to the Mortgage Loan's origination, the related Mortgagor was offered the option of obtaining a mortgage loan that did not require payment of such a premium, (iii) the prepayment premium is disclosed to the related Mortgagor in the Mortgage Loan documents pursuant to applicable state and federal law, and (iv) notwithstanding any state or federal law to the contrary, the Originator, as servicer, shall not impose such prepayment premium in any instance when the mortgage debt is accelerated as the result of the related Mortgagor's default in making the Mortgage Loan payments. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (kkk) Purchase of Insurance. No Mortgagor was required to purchase any single premium credit insurance policy (e.g., life, mortgage, disability, property, accident, unemployment or health insurance product) or debt cancellation agreement as a condition of obtaining the extension of credit. No Mortgagor obtained a prepaid single-premium credit insurance policy (e.g., life, mortgage, disability, property, accident, unemployment, mortgage or health insurance) in connection with the origination of the Mortgage Loan. No proceeds from any Mortgage Loan were used to purchase single premium credit insurance policies as part of the origination of, or as a condition to closing, such Mortgage Loan. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (lll) Points and Fees. All points and fees related to each Mortgage Loan were disclosed in writing to the Mortgagor in accordance with applicable state and federal law and regulation. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (mmm) Disclosure of Fees and Charges. All fees and charges (including finance charges), whether or not financed, assessed, collected or to be collected in connection with the origination and servicing of each Mortgage Loan, have been disclosed in writing to the Mortgagor in accordance with applicable state and federal law and regulation. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (nnn) No Arbitration. No Mortgage Loan originated on or after July 1, 2004 requires the related Mortgagor to submit to arbitration to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating in any way to the Mortgage Loan transaction. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (ooo) Request for Notice; No Consent Required. With respect to any Second Lien Loan, where required or customary in the jurisdiction in which the Mortgaged Property is located, the original lender has filed for record a request for notice of any action by the related senior lienholder, and the Seller has notified the senior lienholder in writing of the existence of the Second Lien Loan and requested notification of any action to be taken against the Mortgagor by the senior lienholder. Either (a) no consent for the Second Lien Loan is required by the holder of the related first lien or (b) such consent has been obtained and is contained in the Mortgage File. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (ppp) No Default Under First Lien. With respect to each Second Lien Loan, the related First Lien Loan related thereto is in full force and effect, and there is no default, breach, violation or event which would permit acceleration existing under such first Mortgage or Mortgage Note, and no event which, with the passage of time or with notice and the expiration of any grace or cure period, would constitute a default, breach, violation or event which would permit acceleration thereunder. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (qqq) Right to Cure First Lien. With respect to each Second Lien Loan, the related first lien Mortgage contains a provision which provides for giving notice of default or breach to the mortgagee under the Mortgage Loan and allows such mortgagee to cure any default under the related first lien Mortgage. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (rrr) No Failure to Cure Default. The Seller has not received a written notice of default of any senior mortgage loan related to the Mortgaged Property which has not been cured; (sss) No Negative Amortization of Related First Lien Loan. With respect to each Second Lien Loan, the related First Lien Loan does not permit negative amortization. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; and (ttt) Principal Residence. With respect to each Second Lien Loan, the related Mortgaged Property was the Mortgagor's principal residence at the time of the origination of such Second Lien Loan. This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation. SCHEDULE IX Morgan Stanley Capital I Inc.

Capitalized terms used, but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Agreement. The Transferee has authorized the undersigned to make this affidavit on behalf of the Transferee for the benefit of the Depositor and the Trustee. (2) The Transferee is, as of the date hereof, and will be, as of the date of the Transfer, a Permitted Transferee. The Transferee is acquiring its Ownership Interest in the Certificate for its own account. The Transferee has no knowledge that any such affidavit is false. (3) The Transferee has been advised of, and understands that (i) a tax will be imposed on Transfers of the Certificate to Persons that are Non-Permitted Transferees; (ii) such tax will be imposed on the transferor, or, if such Transfer is through an agent (which includes a broker, nominee or middleman) for a Person that is a Non-Permitted Transferee, on the agent; and (iii) the Person otherwise liable for the tax shall be relieved of liability for the tax if the subsequent Transferee furnished to such Person an affidavit that such subsequent Transferee is a Permitted Transferee and, at the time of Transfer, such Person does not have actual knowledge that the affidavit is false. (4) The Transferee has been advised of, and understands that a tax will be imposed on a "pass-through entity" holding the Certificate if at any time during the taxable year of the pass-through entity a Person that is a Non-Permitted Transferee is the record holder of an interest in such entity. The Transferee understands that such tax will not be imposed for any period with respect to which the record holder furnishes to the pass-through entity an affidavit that such record holder is a Permitted Transferee and the pass-through entity does not have actual knowledge that such affidavit is false. (For this purpose, a "pass-through entity" includes a regulated investment company, a real estate investment trust or common trust fund, a partnership, trust or estate, and certain cooperatives and, except as may be provided in Treasury Regulations, persons holding interests in pass-through entities as a nominee for another Person.) (5) The Transferee has reviewed the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement and understands the legal consequences of the acquisition of an Ownership Interest in the Certificate including, without limitation, the restrictions on subsequent Transfers and the provisions regarding voiding the Transfer and mandatory sales. The Transferee expressly agrees to be bound by and to abide by the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement and the restrictions noted on the face of the Certificate. The Transferee understands and agrees that any breach of any of the representations included herein shall render the Transfer to the Transferee contemplated hereby null and void. (6) The Transferee agrees to require a Transfer Affidavit from any Person to whom the Transferee attempts to Transfer its Ownership Interest in the Certificate, and in connection with any Transfer by a Person for whom the Transferee is acting as nominee, trustee or agent, and the Transferee will not Transfer its Ownership Interest or cause any Ownership Interest to be Transferred to any Person that the Transferee knows is a Non-Permitted Transferee. In connection with any such Transfer by the Transferee, the Transferee agrees to deliver to the Securities Administrator a certificate substantially in the form set forth as Exhibit H to the Agreement (a "Transferor Certificate") to the effect that, among other things, such Transferee has no actual knowledge that the Person to which the Transfer is to be made is a Non-Permitted Transferee. (7) The Transferee does not have the intention to impede the assessment or collection of any tax legally required to be paid with respect to the Certificate. The Transferee has historically paid its debts as they have come due and intends to pay its debts as they come due in the future. The Transferee intends to pay all taxes due with respect to the Certificate as they become due. (8) The Transferee's taxpayer identification number is __________. (9) The Transferee is a U.S. Person as defined in Code Section 7701(a)(30). (10) The Transferee is aware that the Certificate may be a "noneconomic residual interest" within the meaning of proposed Treasury regulations promulgated pursuant to the Code and that the transferor of a noneconomic residual interest will remain liable for any taxes due with respect to the income on such residual interest, unless no significant purpose of the transfer was to impede the assessment or collection of tax. (11) The Transferee will not cause income from the Residual Certificate to be attributable to a foreign permanent establishment or fixed base, within the meaning of an applicable income tax treaty, of the Transferee or any other U.S. Person. (12) Check the applicable paragraph: / / The present value of the anticipated tax liabilities associated with holding the Certificate, as applicable, does not exceed the sum of: (i) the present value of any consideration given to the Transferee to acquire such Certificate; (ii) the present value of the expected future distributions on such Certificate; and (iii) the present value of the anticipated tax savings associated with holding such Certificate as the related REMIC generates losses. For purposes of this calculation, (i) the Transferee is assumed to pay tax at the highest rate currently specified in Section 11(b) of the Code (but the tax rate in Section 55(b)(1)(B) of the Code may be used in lieu of the highest rate specified in Section 11(b) of the Code if the Transferee has been subject to the alternative minimum tax under Section 55 of the Code in the preceding two years and will compute its taxable income in the current taxable year using the alternative minimum tax rate) and (ii) present values are computed using a discount rate equal to the short-term Federal rate prescribed by Section 1274(d) of the Code for the month of the transfer and the compounding period used by the Transferee. / / The transfer of the Certificate complies with U.S. Treasury Regulations Sections 1.860E-1(c)(5) and (6) and, accordingly, (i) the Transferee is an "eligible corporation," as defined in U.S. Treasury Regulations Section 1.860E-1(c)(6)(i), as to which income from the Certificate will only be taxed in the United States; (ii) at the time of the transfer, and at the close of the Transferee's two fiscal years preceding the year of the transfer, the Transferee had gross assets for financial reporting purposes (excluding any obligation of a person related to the Transferee within the meaning of U.S. Treasury Regulations Section 1.860E-1(c)(6)(ii)) in excess of $100 million and net assets in excess of $10 million; (iii) the Transferee will transfer the Certificate only to another "eligible corporation," as defined in U.S. Treasury Regulations Section 1.860E-1(c)(6)(i), in a transaction that satisfies the requirements of Sections 1.860E-1(c)(4)(i), (ii) and (iii) and Section 1.860E-1(c)(5) of the U.S. Treasury Regulations; and (iv) the Transferee determined the consideration paid to it to acquire the Certificate based on reasonable market assumptions (including, but not limited to, borrowing and investment rates, prepayment and loss assumptions, expense and reinvestment assumptions, tax rates and other factors specific to the Transferee) that it has determined in good faith. / / None of the above. (13) The Transferee is not an employee benefit plan that is subject to Title I of ERISA or a plan that is subject to Section 4975 of the Code or a plan subject to any Federal, state or local law that is substantially similar to Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code, and the Transferee is not acting on behalf of or investing plan assets of such a plan. *** IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Transferee has caused this instrument to be executed on its behalf, pursuant to authority of its Board of Directors, by its duly authorized officer and its corporate seal to be hereunto affixed, duly attested, this ___ day of _____, 20__. ________________________________________ Print Name of Transferee By: ____________________________________ Name: Title: [Corporate Seal] ATTEST: [Assistant] Secretary Personally appeared before me the above-named __________, known or proved to me to be the same person who executed the foregoing instrument and to be the ___________ of the Transferee, and acknowledged that he executed the same as his free act and deed and the free act and deed of the Transferee.

All payments required to be made up to the related Closing Date for the Mortgage Loan under the terms of the Mortgage Note, other than payments not yet 30 days delinquent, have been made and credited. No payment required under the Mortgage Loan is 30 days or more delinquent nor has any payment under the Mortgage Loan been 30 days or more delinquent, exclusive of any period of grace, at any time since the origination of the Mortgage Loan. The first Monthly Payment shall be made with respect to the Mortgage Loan on its related Due Date or within the grace period, all in accordance with the terms of the related Mortgage Note; (c) No Outstanding Charges.

The terms of the Mortgage Note and Mortgage have not been impaired, waived, altered or modified in any respect, from the date of origination except by a written instrument which has been recorded, if necessary to protect the interests of the Purchaser, and which has been delivered to the Custodian or to such other Person as the Purchaser shall designate in writing, and the terms of which are reflected in the related Mortgage Loan Schedule. The substance of any such waiver, alteration or modification has been approved by the title insurer, if any, to the extent required by the policy, and its terms are reflected on the related Mortgage Loan Schedule, if applicable. No Mortgagor has been released, in whole or in part, except in connection with an assumption agreement, approved by the issuer of the title insurer, to the extent required by the policy, and which assumption agreement is part of the Mortgage Loan File delivered to the Custodian or to such other Person as the Purchaser shall designate in writing and the terms of which are reflected in the related Mortgage Loan Schedule; (e) No Defenses. The Mortgage Loan is not subject to any right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense, including without limitation the defense of usury, nor will the operation of any of the terms of the Mortgage Note or the Mortgage, or the exercise of any right thereunder, render either the Mortgage Note or the Mortgage unenforceable, in whole or in part and no such right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense has been asserted with respect thereto, subject to bankruptcy, equitable principles and laws affecting creditor rights; (f) Hazard Insurance. Pursuant to the terms of the Mortgage, all buildings or other improvements upon the Mortgaged Property are insured by an insurer acceptable in accordance with Seller's Underwriting Guidelines against loss by fire, hazards of extended coverage and such other hazards as are customary in the area where the Mortgaged Property is situated as well as all additional requirements set forth in Section 2.10 of the Interim Servicing Agreement.

All individual insurance policies contain a standard mortgagee clause naming the originator and its successors and assigns as mortgagee, and all premiums thereon have been paid. The Mortgage obligates the Mortgagor thereunder to maintain the hazard insurance policy at the Mortgagor's cost and expense, and on the Mortgagor's failure to do so, authorizes the holder of the Mortgage to obtain and maintain such insurance at such Mortgagor's cost and expense, and to seek reimbursement therefor from the Mortgagor. Where required by state law or regulation, the Mortgagor has been given an opportunity to choose the carrier of the required hazard insurance, provided the policy is not a "master" or "blanket" hazard insurance policy covering a condominium, or any hazard insurance policy covering the common facilities of a planned unit development.

The Seller has not engaged in, and has no knowledge of the Mortgagor's having engaged in, any act or omission which would impair the coverage of any such policy, the benefits of the endorsement provided for herein, or the validity and binding effect of either including, without limitation, no unlawful fee, commission, kickback or other unlawful compensation or value of any kind has been or will be received, retained or realized by any attorney, firm or other person or entity, and no such unlawful items have been received, retained or realized by the Seller; (g) Compliance with Applicable Laws.

This representation and warranty is a Deemed Material and Adverse Representation; (h) No Satisfaction of Mortgage. The Mortgage has not been satisfied, canceled, subordinated or rescinded, in whole or in part, and the Mortgaged Property has not been released from the lien of the Mortgage, in whole or in part, nor has any instrument been executed that would effect any such release, cancellation, subordination or rescission. The Seller has not waived the performance by the Mortgagor of any action, if the Mortgagor's failure to perform such action would cause the Mortgage Loan to be in default, nor has the Seller waived any default resulting from any action or inaction by the Mortgagor; (i) Type of Mortgaged Property. The Mortgaged Property is a fee simple estate, or a leasehold estate located in a jurisdiction in which the use of a leasehold estate for residential properties is a widely-accepted practice, that consists of one or more separate and complete tax parcels of real property improved by a Residential Dwelling; provided, however, that any condominium unit or planned unit development (other than a de minimis planned unit development) shall conform with the Underwriting Guidelines. In the case of any Mortgaged Properties that are Manufactured Homes (a "Manufactured Home Mortgage Loans"), (i) the related manufactured dwelling is permanently affixed to the land, (ii) the related manufactured dwelling and the related land are subject to a Mortgage properly filed in the appropriate public recording office and naming Seller as mortgagee, (iii) the applicable laws of the jurisdiction in which the related Mortgaged Property is located will deem the manufactured dwelling located on such Mortgaged Property to be a part of the real property on which such dwelling is located, (iv) as of the origination date of such Manufactured Home Mortgage Loan, the related Mortgagor occupied the related Manufactured Home as its primary residence, and (v) such Manufactured Home Mortgage Loan is (x) a qualified mortgage under Section 860G(a)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended and (y) secured by manufactured housing treated as a single family residence under Section 25(e)(10) of the Code.

Any security agreement, chattel mortgage or equivalent document related to and delivered in connection with the Mortgage Loan establishes and creates a valid, subsisting, enforceable and first lien (with respect to a First Lien Loan) or second lien (with respect to a Second Lien Loan) and first priority (with respect to a First Lien Loan) or second priority (with respect to a Second Lien Loan) security interest on the property described therein and the Seller has full right to sell and assign the same to the Purchaser subject to the Permitted Exceptions; (k) Validity of Mortgage Documents.
