By executing and delivering this Security Instrument, Borrower hereby grants to Lender, as security for the Obligations (hereinafter defined), a security interest in the Fixtures, the Equipment and the Personal Property and other property constituting the Property, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, to the full extent that the Fixtures, the Equipment and the Personal Property and such other property may be subject to the Uniform Commercial Code (said portion of the Property so subject to the Uniform Commercial Code being called the “Collateral”). If an Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, Lender, in addition to any other rights and remedies which it may have, shall have and may exercise immediately and without demand, any and all rights and remedies granted to a secured party upon default under the Uniform Commercial Code, including the right to take possession of the Collateral or any part thereof, and to take such other measures as Lender may deem necessary for the care, protection and preservation of the Collateral. Upon request or demand of Lender after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Borrower shall, at its expense, assemble the Collateral and make it available to Lender at a convenient place (at the Land if tangible property) reasonably acceptable to Lender. Borrower shall pay to Lender on demand any and all expenses, including reasonable legal expenses and attorneys’ fees, incurred or paid by Lender in protecting its interest in the Collateral and in enforcing its rights hereunder with respect to the Collateral after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default. Any notice of sale, disposition or other intended action by

 

5


Lender with respect to the Collateral sent to Borrower in accordance with the provisions hereof at least ten (10) business days prior to such action, shall, except as otherwise provided by applicable law, constitute reasonable notice to Borrower. The proceeds of any disposition of the Collateral, or any part thereof, may, except as otherwise required by applicable law, be applied by Lender to the payment of the Debt in such priority and proportions as Lender in its discretion shall deem proper. Borrower’s (debtor’s) principal place of business is as set forth on page one hereof and the address of Lender (secured party) is as set forth on page one hereof.

Borrower shall promptly notify Lender of the existence of any commercial tort claim now or hereafter existing for the benefit of Borrower or the Property, and shall execute, acknowledge and deliver a security agreement or other documentation as Lender shall from time to time require to acquire and perfect a valid and binding security interest in such commercial tort claim.

Section 1.4 Fixture Filing. Certain of the Property is or will become “fixtures” (as that term is defined in the Uniform Commercial Code) on the Land, and this Security Instrument, upon being filed for record in the real estate records of the city or county wherein such fixtures are situated, shall operate also as a financing statement filed as a fixture filing in accordance with the applicable provisions of said Uniform Commercial Code upon such of the Property that is or may become fixtures.

Section 1.5 Pledges of Monies Held. Borrower hereby pledges to Lender any and all monies now or hereafter held by Lender or on behalf of Lender, including any sums deposited in the Lockbox Account, the Cash Management Account, the Reserve Funds and Net Proceeds, as additional security for the Obligations until expended or applied as provided in this Security Instrument or the Loan Agreement.

Section 1.6 Common Law Pledge/Assignment. To the extent that the Uniform Commercial Code does not apply to any item of the Personal Property, it is the intention of this Security Instrument that Lender have a common law pledge and/or collateral assignment of such item of Personal Property.

ARTICLE VI - DUE ON SALE/ENCUMBRANCE

Section 6.1 Lender Reliance. Borrower acknowledges that Lender has examined and relied on the experience of Borrower and its general partners, members, principals and (if Borrower is a trust) beneficial owners in owning and operating properties such as the Property in agreeing to make the Loan, and will continue to rely on Borrower’s ownership of the Property as a means of maintaining the value of the Property as security for repayment of the Debt and the performance of the Other Obligations. Borrower acknowledges that Lender has a valid interest in maintaining the value of the Property so as to ensure that, should Borrower default in the repayment of the Debt or the performance of the Other Obligations, Lender can recover the Debt by a sale of the Property.

Section 6.2 No Sale/Encumbrance. Neither Borrower nor any Restricted Party (as defined in the Loan Agreement) shall Transfer the Property or any part thereof or any interest therein or permit or suffer the Property or any part thereof or any interest therein to be Transferred other than as expressly permitted pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement.

ARTICLE VII - RIGHTS AND REMEDIES UPON DEFAULT

Section 7.1 Remedies. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default (as defined in the Loan Agreement), Borrower agrees that Lender may take such action, without notice or demand, but only to the to the extent permitted by applicable California law, as it deems advisable to protect and enforce its rights against Borrower and in and to the Property, including the following actions, each of which may be pursued concurrently or otherwise, at such time and in such order as Lender may determine, in its discretion, without, to the extent permitted by applicable California law, impairing or otherwise affecting the other rights and remedies of Lender:

(a) declare the entire unpaid Debt to be immediately due and payable;

(b) institute judicial foreclosure proceedings for the complete foreclosure of this Security Instrument under the applicable provisions of California law, in which case the Property or any interest therein may, to the extent permitted by applicable California law, be sold for cash or upon credit in one or more parcels or in several interests or portions and in any order or manner; (d) Exercise the power of sale contained in this Security Instrument and deliver to Trustee a written statement of breach, notice of default and election to cause Borrower’s interest in the Property to be sold, all in accordance with applicable law.

(c) exercise the power of sale contained in this Security Instrument and deliver to Trustee a written statement of breach, notice of default and election to cause Borrower’s interest in the Property to be sold, all in accordance with applicable law.

(i) If Lender elects to exercise the power of sale contained in this Security Instrument, Lender shall notify Trustee and shall deposit with Trustee copies of this Security Instrument and the Notes and such receipts and evidence of expenditures made and secured hereby as Trustee may require.

(ii) Upon receipt of such notice from Lender and at the direction of Lender, Trustee shall cause to be recorded, published or delivered such notices of default and notices of sale as may then be required by law or this Security Instrument. Trustee shall, only at the direction of Lender and without demand on Borrower, after such time as may then be required by law and after recordation of such notice of default and after notice of sale having been given as required by law, sell Borrower’s interest in the Property at the time and place of sale fixed by it in such notice of sale, either as a whole, or in separate lots or parcels or items as Lender shall deem expedient, and in such order as it may determine, at public auction to the highest bidder for cash in lawful money of the United States payable at the time of sale, or as otherwise may then be required by law. Trustee shall deliver to such purchaser or purchasers thereof its good and sufficient deed or deeds conveying the property so sold, without any covenant or warranty, express or implied. The recitals in such deed of any matters or facts shall be conclusive proof of the truthfulness thereof. Any person, including, without limitation, Borrower, Trustee, Lender, or any Lender, may purchase at such sale, and Borrower covenants to warrant and defend the title of such purchaser or purchasers. Lender and Lenders shall have the right to credit bid at any such sale.

 

13


(iii) Trustee or Lender may sell not only the real property but also the personal property and other interests which are a part of the Property, or any part thereof, as a unit and as a part of a single sale, or may sell any part of the Property separately from the remainder of the Property. Neither Trustee nor Lender shall be required to take possession of any part of the Property or to have any of the personal property present at any sale of the Property. Trustee or Lender may appoint or delegate any one or more persons as agent to perform any act or acts necessary or incident to any sale held by Trustee or Lender, including the posting of notices and the conduct of sale, but in the name and on behalf of Lender. If any sale hereunder is not completed or is defective in the opinion of Trustee or Lender, such sale shall not exhaust the power of sale hereunder, and Trustee or Lender shall have the right to cause a subsequent sale or sales to be made hereunder.

(iv) As may be permitted by, but subject to, applicable law, after deducting all costs, fees and expenses of Trustee and of this Security Instrument, including costs of evidence of title in connection with sale, Trustee or Lender shall apply the proceeds of sale (A) first, to payment of all costs, fees and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred by Lender in exercising the power of sale or foreclosing this Security Instrument, (B) second, to the payment of the Secured Obligations (including, without limitation, the principal, accrued interest and other sums due and owing under the Notes and the amounts due and owing to Lender and Lenders under this Security Instrument) in such manner and order as Lender may elect, and (C) third, the remainder, if any, shall be paid to Borrower, or such other persons as may be legally entitled thereto.

(v) Trustee may, in the manner provided by law, postpone sale of all or any portion of the Property by public announcement at such time and place of sale, and from time to time thereafter may postpone such sale by public announcement or subsequently noticed sale, and without further notice make such sale at the time fixed by the last postponement, or may, in its discretion, give a new notice of sale.

(d) institute an action, suit or proceeding in equity for the specific performance of any covenant, condition or agreement contained herein, in the Note, the Loan Agreement or in the other Loan Documents;

(e) apply for and obtain the appointment, on an ex parte basis (any required notice of such appointment or any proceeding to appoint the same being hereby expressly waived) and without regard for the adequacy of the security for the Debt and without regard for the solvency of Borrower, any guarantor, indemnitor or of any Person liable for the payment of the Debt, of a receiver, trustee, liquidator or conservator of the Property to do all of the actions set forth in subparagraph (h) below and to, with the consent of Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable California law, dispose (by lease, sale or otherwise) of some or all of the Property in the course of the proceeding in which such receiver, trustee, liquidator or conservator is appointed;

 

14


(f) the license granted to Borrower under Section 1.2 hereof shall automatically be revoked and Lender may enter into or upon the Property, either personally or by its agents, nominees or attorneys and dispossess Borrower and its agents and servants therefrom, without liability for trespass, damages or otherwise and exclude Borrower and its agents or servants wholly therefrom, and take possession of all books, records and accounts relating thereto and Borrower agrees to surrender possession of the Property and of such books, records and accounts to Lender upon demand, and thereupon Lender may (i) use, operate, manage, control, insure, maintain, repair, restore and otherwise deal with all and every part of the Property and conduct the business thereat; (ii) complete any construction on the Property in such manner and form as Lender deems advisable; (iii) make alterations, additions, renewals, replacements and improvements to or on the Property; (iv) exercise all rights and powers of Borrower with respect to the Property, whether in the name of Borrower or otherwise, including the right to make, cancel, enforce or modify Leases, obtain and evict tenants, and demand, sue for, collect and receive all Rents of the Property and every part thereof; (v) require Borrower to pay monthly in advance to Lender, or any receiver appointed to collect the Rents, the fair and reasonable rental value for the use and occupation of such part of the Property as may be occupied by Borrower; (vi) require Borrower to vacate and surrender possession of the Property to Lender or to such receiver and, in default thereof, Borrower may be evicted by summary proceedings or otherwise; and (vii) apply the receipts from the Property to the payment of the Debt, in such order, priority and proportions as Lender shall deem appropriate in its discretion after deducting therefrom all expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with the aforesaid operations and all amounts necessary to pay the Taxes, Other Charges, insurance and other expenses in connection with the Property, as well as just and reasonable compensation for the services of Lender, its counsel, agents and employees;

(g) exercise any and all rights and remedies granted to a secured party upon default under the Uniform Commercial Code, including: (i) the right to take possession of the Fixtures, the Equipment, the Personal Property or any part thereof, and to take such other measures as Lender may deem necessary for the care, protection and preservation of the Fixtures, the Equipment, the Personal Property, and (ii) request Borrower at its expense to assemble the Fixtures, the Equipment, the Personal Property and make it available to Lender at a convenient place acceptable to Lender. Any notice of sale, disposition or other intended action by Lender with respect to the Fixtures, the Equipment, the Personal Property sent to Borrower in accordance with the provisions hereof at least five (5) days prior to such action, shall constitute commercially reasonable notice to Borrower;

(h) apply any sums then deposited or held in escrow or otherwise by or on behalf of Lender in accordance with the terms of the Loan Agreement, this Security Instrument or any other Loan Document to the payment of the following items in any order in its discretion: (i) Taxes and Other Charges; (ii) Insurance Premiums; (iii) interest on the unpaid principal balance of the Note; (iv) amortization of the unpaid principal balance of the Note; and (v) all other sums payable pursuant to the Note, the Loan Agreement, this Security Instrument and the other Loan Documents, including advances made by Lender pursuant to the terms of this Security Instrument;

and proportion as Lender shall deem proper, and in connection therewith, Borrower hereby appoints Lender as agent and attorney-in-fact (which is coupled with an interest and is therefore irrevocable) for Borrower to collect such Insurance Premiums;

(j) prohibit Borrower and anyone claiming for or through Borrower from making use of or withdrawing any sums from any lockbox, escrow or similar account;

(k) pursue such other remedies as Lender may have under applicable law; or

Section 7.3 Right to Cure Defaults. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, or if Borrower fails to make any payment or to do any act as herein provided, Lender may, but without any obligation to do so and without notice to or demand on Borrower and without releasing Borrower from any obligation hereunder, make any payment or do any act required of Borrower hereunder in such manner and to such extent as Lender may deem necessary to protect the security hereof. Lender is authorized to enter upon the Property for such purposes, or appear in, defend, or bring any action or proceeding to protect its interest in the Property or to foreclose this Security Instrument or collect the Debt, and the cost and expense thereof (including reasonable attorneys’ fees to the extent permitted by law), with interest as provided in this Section 7.3, shall constitute a portion of the Debt and shall be due and payable to Lender upon demand. All such costs and expenses incurred by Lender in remedying such Event of Default or such failed payment or act or in appearing in, defending, or bringing any such action or proceeding shall bear interest at the Default Rate (as defined in the Note), for the period after notice from Lender that such cost or expense was incurred to the date of payment to Lender. All such costs and expenses incurred by Lender together with interest thereon calculated at the Default Rate shall be deemed to constitute a portion of the Debt and be secured by this Security Instrument and the other Loan Documents and shall be immediately due and payable upon demand by Lender therefor.

Section 7.4 Actions and Proceedings. Lender has the right to appear in and defend any action or proceeding brought with respect to the Property and to bring any action or proceeding, in the name and on behalf of Borrower, which Lender, in its discretion, decides should be brought to protect its interest in the Property.

Section 7.5 Recovery of Sums Required To Be Paid. Lender shall have the right from time to time to take action to recover any sum or sums which constitute a part of the Debt as the same become due, without regard to whether or not the balance of the Debt shall be due, and without prejudice to the right of Lender thereafter to bring an action of foreclosure, or any other action, for a default or defaults by Borrower existing at the time such earlier action was commenced.

Lender and its agents shall have the right to make copies and extracts from the foregoing records and other papers. In addition, at reasonable times and upon reasonable notice, Lender, its agents, accountants and attorneys shall have the right to examine and audit the books and records of Borrower pertaining to the income, expenses and operation of the Property during reasonable business hours at any office of Borrower where the books and records are located. This Section 7.6 shall apply throughout the term of the Note and without regard to whether an Event of Default has occurred or is continuing.

Section 7.7 Other Rights, etc. (a) The failure of Lender to insist upon strict performance of any term hereof shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any term of this Security Instrument. Borrower shall not be relieved of Borrower’s obligations hereunder by reason of (i) the failure of Lender to comply with any request of Borrower or any guarantor or any indemnitor with respect to the Loan to take any action to foreclose this Security Instrument or otherwise enforce any of the provisions hereof or of the Note or the other Loan Documents, (ii) the release, regardless of consideration, of the whole or any part of the Property, or of any person liable for the Debt or any portion thereof, or (iii) any agreement or stipulation by Lender extending the time of payment or otherwise modifying or supplementing the terms of the Note, this Security Instrument or the other Loan Documents.

(b) It is agreed that the risk of loss or damage to the Property is on Borrower, and Lender shall have no liability whatsoever for decline in value of the Property, for failure to maintain the Policies, or for failure to determine whether insurance in force is adequate as to the amount of risks insured. Possession by Lender shall not be deemed an election of judicial relief if any such possession is requested or obtained with respect to any Property or collateral not in Lender’s possession.

(c) Lender may resort for the payment of the Debt to any other security held by Lender in such order and manner as Lender, in its discretion, may elect. Lender may take action to recover the Debt, or any portion thereof, or to enforce any covenant hereof without prejudice to the right of Lender thereafter to foreclose this Security Instrument. The rights of Lender under this Security Instrument shall be separate, distinct and cumulative and none shall be given effect to the exclusion of the others. No act of Lender shall be construed as an election to proceed under any one provision herein to the exclusion of any other provision. Lender shall not be limited exclusively to the rights and remedies herein stated but shall be entitled to every right and remedy now or hereafter afforded at law or in equity.

Section 7.8 Right to Release Any Portion of the Property. Lender may, to the extent permitted by applicable California law, release any portion of the Property for such consideration as Lender may require without, as to the remainder of the Property, in any way impairing or affecting the lien or priority of this Security Instrument, or improving the position of any

 

17


subordinate lienholder with respect thereto, except to the extent that the obligations hereunder shall have been reduced by the actual monetary consideration, if any, received by Lender for such release, and may accept by assignment, pledge or otherwise any other property in place thereof as Lender may require without being accountable for so doing to any other lienholder. This Security Instrument shall continue as a lien and security interest in the remaining portion of the Property.

(f) an Event of Default shall “continue” or be “continuing” until such Event of Default has been waived in writing by Lender;

(g) No inference in favor of or against any party shall be drawn from the fact that such party has drafted any portion hereof or any other Loan Document;

Such Decision Power and each other power granted to Lender upon this Security Instrument or any other Loan Document may be exercised by Lender or by any authorized agent of Lender (including any servicer and/or

If foreclosure sale occurs hereunder after the recording of any such declaration, the title received by the purchaser at such sale shall be subject to the matters specified in such declaration, but such declaration shall not otherwise affect the validity or terms of this Security Instrument or any other Loan Document or the priority of any lien or security interest created hereunder or under any other Loan Document. Without limitation of the foregoing, Lender shall have the right to unilaterally modify any Loan Document to release any lien on any portion of the Property

Trustee shall not be personally liable in case of entry by Trustee, or anyone entering by virtue of the powers herein granted to Trustee, upon the Property for debts contracted for or liability or damages incurred in the management or operation of the Property. Trustee shall have the right to rely on any instrument, document, or signature authorizing or supporting an action taken or proposed to be taken by Trustee hereunder, believed by Trustee in good faith to be genuine. Trustee shall be entitled to reimbursement for actual expenses incurred by Trustee in the performance of Trustee’s duties hereunder and to reasonable compensation for such of Trustee’s services hereunder as shall be rendered.

Section 16.4 Retention of Money. All moneys received by Trustee shall, until used or applied as herein provided, be held in trust for the purposes for which they were received, but need not be segregated in any manner from any other moneys (except to the extent required by applicable law) and Trustee shall be under no liability for interest on any moneys received by Trustee hereunder.

Section 16.5 Perfection of Appointment. Should any deed, conveyance, or instrument of any nature be required from Borrower by any Trustee or substitute trustee to more fully and certainly vest in and confirm to the Trustee or substitute trustee such estates rights, powers, and duties, then, upon request by the Trustee or substitute trustee, any and all such deeds, conveyances and instruments shall be made, executed, acknowledged, and delivered and shall be caused to be recorded and/or filed by Borrower.

Any substitute trustee appointed pursuant to any of the provisions hereof shall, without any further act, deed, or conveyance, become vested with all the estates, properties, rights, powers, and trusts of its or his/her predecessor in the rights hereunder with like effect as if originally named as Trustee herein; but nevertheless, upon the written request of Lender or of the substitute trustee, the Trustee ceasing to act shall execute and deliver any instrument transferring to such substitute trustee, upon the trusts herein expressed, all the estates, properties, rights, powers, and trusts of the Trustee so ceasing to act, and shall duly assign, transfer and deliver any of the property and moneys held by such Trustee to the substitute trustee so appointed in the Trustee’s place.

(b) Lender may, in its sole discretion, elect to (i) apply the Net Proceeds of any Condemnation Proceeds in reduction of the Debt in such order and manner as Lender may elect, whether due or not or (ii) make the proceeds available to Borrower for Restoration. Any implied covenant in this Security Instrument or the Loan Agreement restricting the right of Lender to make such an election is waived by Borrower. In addition, Borrower hereby waives the provisions of any law prohibiting Lender from making such an election, including, without limitation, the provisions of California Code of Civil Procedure commencing with Section 1265.210.

Section 17.5 Notices Of Default. All notices and cure periods described in Section 8.1 of the Loan Agreement shall not be applicable to any event which with the giving of notice, the passage of time or both would constitute an Event of Default, if such event has occurred as of the date on which Lender commences a nonjudicial foreclosure proceeding with respect to another Event or Event of Default. Such event shall constitute an independent Event of Default hereunder and under the Loan Agreement.

Section 17.6 Recovery of Sums Required to be Paid. The following sentence is inserted at the end of Section 7.5: “This Section 7.5 is separate and several, and shall survive the merger of this provision into any judgment.”

Section 17.8 Environmental Compliance.

(a) With or without notice, and without releasing Borrower from any obligation hereunder or under the Loan Agreement, Lender shall have the right, but shall not be obligated, to cure any default of Borrower under this Section 5.1.19 of the Loan Agreement, and, in connection therewith, Lender or its agents, acting by themselves or through a court-appointed receiver, may enter upon the Property or any part thereof and perform such acts and things as Lender deems necessary or desirable to inspect, investigate, assess, and protect the security hereof, including without limitation, the right to: (i) obtain a court order to enforce Lender’s rights to enter and inspect the Property under California Civil Code Section 2929.5, to which the decision of Lender as to whether there exists a release or threatened release of Hazardous Substances in or onto the Property shall be deemed reasonable and conclusive as between the parties hereto; and (ii) have a receiver appointed under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 564 to enforce Lender’s right to enter and inspect the Property for Hazardous Substances. All costs and expenses reasonably incurred by Lender with respect to the audits, tests, inspections, and examinations which Lender or its agents or employees may conduct, including the fees of the engineers, laboratories, contractor, consultants, and attorneys, shall be paid by Borrower. All reimbursement costs and expenses incurred by Trustee and Lender pursuant to this subparagraph (including, without limitation, court costs, consultant fees and attorney fees, whether incurred in litigation or otherwise and whether before or after judgment) shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date such costs and expenses are incurred until said sums have been fully paid.

(b) At Lender’s option, Lender shall be entitled to seek a judgment that Borrower has breached its covenants, representations and/or warranties with respect to the environmental matters set forth in the Environmental Indemnity Agreement of even date herewith between Borrower and Lender, by commencing and maintaining an action or actions in any court of competent jurisdiction for breach of contract pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Section 736, whether commenced prior to foreclosure of the Property or otherwise, and to seek the recovery of any and all costs, damages, expenses, fees, penalties, fines, judgments, indemnification payments to third parties, and other out-of-pocket costs or expenses actually incurred or advanced by Lender relating to the cleanup, remediation or other response action, required by applicable law or to which Lender believes necessary to protect the Property (collectively, the “Environmental Costs”) (excluding, however, any Environmental Costs not permitted to be recovered pursuant to Section 736 of the California Code of Civil Procedure), it being conclusively presumed between Lender and Borrower that all such Environmental Costs incurred or advanced by Lender relating to the cleanup, remediation, or other response action of or to the Property were made by Lender in good faith. Environmental Costs that are not permitted to be recovered pursuant to Section 736 may be referred to hereinafter as the “Unsecured Environmental Costs,” and Environmental Costs other than the Unsecured Environmental Costs may be referred to hereinafter as the “Secured Environmental Costs.” Any Unsecured Environmental Costs shall not be secured by this Security Instrument; provided, however, nothing herein shall prevent Lender from recovering any Unsecured Environmental Costs pursuant to the unsecured Environmental Indemnity, to the extent they are recoverable in accordance with said Environmental Indemnity. All Environmental Costs under this subparagraph (including, without limitation, court costs, consultant fees and attorneys’ fees, whether incurred in litigation or otherwise and whether before or after judgment) shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date of such costs and expenses have been incurred until said sums have been fully paid. Lender shall be entitled to bid, at a sale of the Property held as provided herein, the amount of such Secured Environmental Costs (including interest thereon) in addition to the amount of the other obligations hereby secured as a credit bid, the equivalent of cash.

(c) At Lender’s option, Lender shall be entitled to waive its lien against the Property or any portion thereof, whether fixtures or personal property, to the extent such property is found to be environmentally impaired in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure Section 726.5 and to exercise any and all rights and remedies of an unsecured creditor against Borrower and all of Borrower’s assets and property for the recovery of any deficiency and Environmental Costs, including, but not limited to, seeking an attachment order under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 483.010. As between Lender and Borrower, for purposes of California Code of Civil Procedure Section 726.5, Borrower shall have the burden of proving that Borrower or any related party (or any affiliate or agent of Borrower or any related party) was not in any way negligent in permitting the release or threatened release of Hazardous Substances.

(d) Borrower acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding any term or provision contained herein or in the Loan Documents, Environmental Costs shall be exceptions to any nonrecourse or exculpatory provisions of the Loan Documents. Borrower shall be fully and personally liable for the Environmental Costs hereunder, and such liability shall

 

30


not be limited to the original principal amount of the obligation secured by this Security Instrument. Borrower’s obligations for Environmental Costs shall survive a foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure, release, reconveyance, or any other transfer of the Property or this Security Instrument. For the purposes of any action brought under subparagraphs (b) and (c) of this Section 12.5, Borrower hereby waives the defense of laches and any applicable statute of limitations.

Section 17.9 Waiver Of Trial By Jury. BORROWER HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, RELATING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY TO THE LOAN EVIDENCED BY THE NOTE, THE APPLICATION FOR THE LOAN EVIDENCED BY THE NOTE, THE NOTE, THIS SECURITY INSTRUMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR ANY ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF LENDER, ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS OR AGENTS IN CONNECTION THEREWITH.

Borrower’s Initials

Section 17.10 Leasing Matters. Lender is authorized to foreclose this Security Instrument subject to the rights of any tenants of the Property, and the failure to make any such tenants parties defendant to any such foreclosure proceedings and to foreclose their rights will not be, nor be asserted by Borrower to be, a defense to any proceedings instituted by Lender to collect the sums secured hereby or to collect any deficiency remaining unpaid after the foreclosure sale of the Property. Unless otherwise agreed by Lender in writing, all leases and tenancies of the Property executed subsequent to the date hereof, or any part thereof, shall be subordinate and inferior to the lien of this Security Instrument, but superior to any other lien on the Property and shall contain an attornment provision pursuant to which the tenant agrees to attorn to the successful bidder at the foreclosure sale of this Security Instrument at the option of such successful bidder. Additionally, from time to time Lender may execute and record among the land records of the jurisdiction where this Security Instrument is recorded, subordination statements with respect to such of said leases as Lender may designate, whereby the leases so designated by Lender will be made superior to the lien of this Security Instrument. From and after the recordation of such subordination statements, the leases therein referred to shall be superior to the lien of this Security Instrument. From and after the recordation of such subordination statements, the leases therein referred to shall be superior to the lien of this Security Instrument and shall not be affected by any foreclosure hereof. All such leases and tenancies shall contain a provision to the effect that the tenant recognizes the right of Lender to effect such subordination of this Security Instrument and consents thereto. Further, all such leases and tenancies shall contain a provision obligating the tenant to attorn to the Lender or the successful bidder at a foreclosure sale following such foreclosure sale.

Section 17.11 Waivers. Borrower waives, to the extent permitted by law, (a) the benefit of all laws now existing or that may hereafter be enacted providing for any appraisement before sale of any portion of the Property, (b) all rights of redemption, valuation, appraisement, stay of execution, notice of intent to accelerate, notice of acceleration, notice of election to mature or

 

31


declare due the whole of the Debt in the event of foreclosure of the liens hereby created, (c) all rights and remedies which Borrower may have or be able to assert by reason of the laws of the State of California pertaining to the rights and remedies of sureties, (d) the right to assert any statute of limitations as a bar to the enforcement of the lien of this Security Instrument or to any action brought to enforce the Note or any other obligation, and (e) any rights, legal or equitable, to require marshaling of assets or to require foreclosure sales in a particular order, including any rights under California Civil Code Sections 2899 and 3433, and all rights of Borrower under California Civil Code Section 2822. Lender shall have the right to determine the order in which any or all of the Property shall be subjected to the remedies provided herein. Lender shall have the right to determine the order in which any or all portions of the Indebtedness are satisfied from the proceeds realized upon the exercise of the remedies provided herein. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to be a waiver of Borrower’s rights under Section 2924c of the California Civil Code.

Section 17.12 Dwellings. No portion of the proceeds of the Loan shall be used by Borrower to finance the purchase or construction of real property containing four (4) or fewer residential units or on which four (4) or fewer residential units are to be constructed. No portion of the Property is or will be a “dwelling” within the meaning of Section 10240.1 or Section 10240.2 of the California Business and Professions Code.

Section 17.13 Reconveyance. Upon written request of the Lender and surrender of this Security Instrument and the Note to Trustee for cancellation or endorsement, and upon payment of its fees and charges, Trustee shall reconvey, without warranty, all or any part of the property then subject to this Security Instrument. Any reconveyance, whether full or partial, may be made in terms to “the person or persons legally entitled thereto,” and the recitals in such reconveyance of any matters or facts shall be conclusive proof of the truthfulness thereof.

Section 17.14 Notice of Default/Notice of Sale. Borrower hereby requests that any notice of default and any notice of sale hereunder be mailed to them at their respective addresses set forth in the introductory paragraph of this Security Instrument.

Section 17.15 Hazard Insurance Disclosure. This Section is being furnished by Lender in compliance with Section 2955.5(b) of the California Civil Code. California Civil Code Section 2955.5(a) reads as follows: “No lender shall require a borrower, as a condition of receiving or maintaining a loan secured by real property, to provide hazard insurance coverage against risks to the improvements on that real property in an amount exceeding the replacement value of the improvements on the property.” Borrower acknowledges and agrees that the above disclosure was made by Lender to Borrower prior to execution of this Security Instrument, the Note or the other Loan Documents.

ARTICLE XVIII - ADDITIONAL OR SPECIAL PROVISIONS OR MODIFICATIONS

Section 18.1 Principles of Construction. In the event of any inconsistencies between the terms and conditions of this Article 18 and the terms and conditions of this Security Instrument, the terms and conditions of this Article 18 shall control and be binding.

Section 18.2 Other Security Instruments; No Election of Remedies.

(a) The Debt is now or may hereafter be secured by one or more other mortgages, deeds of trust and other security agreements (collectively, as the same may be amended and in effect from time to time, are herein collectively called the “Other Security Instruments”), which cover or will hereafter cover other properties that are or may be located in various states (the “Other Collateral”). The Other Security Instruments will secure the Debt and the performance of the other covenants and agreements of Borrower set forth in the Loan Documents. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Lender may proceed under this Security Instrument and/or any or all the Other Security Instruments against either the Property and/or any or all of the Other Collateral in one or more parcels and in such manner and order as Lender shall elect, to the extent permitted by applicable law. Borrower hereby irrevocably waives and releases, to the extent permitted by law, and whether now or hereafter in force, any right to have the Property or the Other Collateral marshaled upon any foreclosure of this Security Instrument or any Other Security Instrument.

(b) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and without limitation as to any other right or remedy provided to Lender in this Security Instrument or the other Loan Documents, in the case of an Event of Default, in each instance to the extent permitted by applicable California law, (i) Lender shall have the right to pursue all of the rights and remedies under this Security Instrument and the Loan Documents, at law and/or in equity, in one proceeding, or separately and independently in separate proceedings from time to time, as Lender in its sole and absolute discretion, shall determine from time to time, (ii) Lender shall not be required to either marshal assets, sell the Property and/or any Other Collateral in any particular order of alienation (and may sell the same simultaneously and together or separately), or be subject to any “one action” or “election of remedies” law or rule with respect to the Property or any Other Collateral, (iii) the exercise by Lender of any remedies against any one item of Property or any Other Collateral will not impede Lender from subsequently or simultaneously exercising remedies against any other item of Property or Other Collateral, (iv) all liens and other rights, remedies or privileges provided to Lender herein shall remain in full force and effect until Lender has exhausted all of its remedies against the Property and all Property has been foreclosed, sold and/or otherwise realized upon in satisfaction of the Debt, and (v) Lender may resort for the payment of the Debt to any security held by Lender in such order and manner Lender, in its discretion, may elect and Lender may take action to recover the Debt, or any portion thereof, or to enforce any covenant hereof without prejudice to the right of Lender thereafter to foreclose this Security Instrument.

(c) Without notice to or consent of Borrower and without impairment of the lien and rights created by this Security Instrument, Lender may, at any time (in its sole and absolute discretion, but Lender shall have no obligation to), execute and deliver to Borrower a written instrument releasing all or a portion of the lien of this Security Instrument as security for any or all of the obligations of Borrower now existing or hereafter arising under or in respect of the Note, the Loan Agreement and each of the other Loan Documents, whereupon following the execution and delivery by Lender to Borrower of any such written instrument of release, this Security Instrument shall no longer secure such obligations of Borrower so released.

Section 18.3 Incorporation by Reference. Section 3.2 is hereby modified by adding the following to the end thereof: “In the event of any conflict between this Security Instrument and the Loan Agreement, the terms of the Loan Agreement shall control.”

 

33


Section 18.4 Maintenance of Property. The second sentence of Section 3.4 is hereby modified by adding the following to the end thereof: “except as my be permitted in accordance with the Loan Agreement.”
