For any period during which the provisions of Section 6 apply, any Workout Fees or Liquidation Fees shall be paid from funds available for distribution prior to the distribution of funds to the Holders in accordance with Section 6 (it being agreed that a Workout Fee and a Liquidation Fee shall not be payable with respect to the same payment or with respect to the same period of time, or otherwise simultaneously or duplicatively). The Holders acknowledge that pursuant to the Servicing Agreement, the Servicers may be entitled to receive Additional Servicing Compensation. To the extent any such Additional Servicing Compensation is actually received by a Servicer in accordance with the Servicing Agreement, such Servicer shall be entitled to retain the same. In no event, however, shall any amounts relating to Additional Servicing Compensation that are not otherwise actually received by a Servicer (or its subservicer) be deducted from any distributions to any Holder pursuant to Section 5 or Section 6.

(f)     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if each of the Lead Securitization Note and Note B cease to be an asset of the trust fund formed pursuant to the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, the provisions of this Agreement shall apply in their entirety, and each Holder hereby agrees that the Mortgage Loan shall be serviced pursuant to this Agreement. In such event, all references herein to the “Servicing Agreement” and to “from and after the Lead Securitization Date” and any ancillary provisions relating thereto shall be deemed to be inoperative and of no further force and effect; provided that the actual servicing of the Mortgage Loan under this Agreement shall be performed by a successor Master Servicer appointed by the Lead Note Holder and a successor Special Servicer shall be appointed by the Controlling Holder, both of which replacement Servicers shall be Qualified Servicers and shall be reasonably acceptable to each of the Holders. Any such entity acting as a successor Master Servicer or successor Special Servicer of the Mortgage Loan pursuant to the proviso of the preceding sentence will be required to perform such servicing in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices and the provisions of this Agreement.

(g)     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in accordance with this Agreement and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, the Lead Securitization

The Holders agree that the provisions of this Section 4(h) shall be effected by compliance by the related Holder or its assignee with this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement or any other agreement which governs the administration of the Mortgage Loan or such Holder’s interest therein. All costs and expenses of compliance with this Section 4(h), to the extent that such costs and expenses relate to administration of a REMIC or to any determination respecting the amount, payment or avoidance of any tax under the REMIC Provisions or the actual payment of any REMIC tax or expense, shall be borne by the Holders.

5.     Payments Prior to an Event of Default. If no Event of Default shall have occurred and is then continuing, all amounts tendered by the Mortgage Loan Borrower or otherwise available for payment on the Mortgage Loan (including, without limitation, payments received in connection with any guaranty or indemnity agreement), whether received as a payment of the Monthly Debt Service Payment Amount, Prepayments, Balloon Payments, Liquidation Proceeds, Penalty Charges, Cure Payments, proceeds under title, hazard or other insurance policies or awards or settlements in respect of condemnation proceedings or similar exercise of the power of eminent domain (other than any amounts for required reserves or escrows required by the Mortgage Loan Documents and proceeds, awards or settlements to be applied to the restoration or repair of a Mortgaged Property or released to the Mortgage Loan Borrower in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices or the Mortgage Loan Documents) shall be distributed by the Servicer, pursuant to and in accordance with the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, to the A Notes and Note B pro rata and pari passu, based on the outstanding principal amount due under each Note; provided that all such payments of principal and interest allocated to the A Notes shall be applied to Note A-1 and Note A-2 on a pro rata, pari passu basis (first to payments of interest

provided that it is being understood and agreed that the priority of payment set forth above is solely for purposes of allocating collections on the Mortgage Loan or the Mortgaged Properties (net of any reimbursement or payment of Advances or Trust Fund Expenses relating to the Mortgage Loan or Mortgaged Properties to the extent provided above) to each Note and that any amounts payable to or allocable to the Notes in respect of interest, principal, default interest and interest on P&I Advances will be subject to Section 1.3 and Section 3.4(c) of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement and the other applicable provisions of the Lead Securitization

Servicing Agreement and will not otherwise affect the reimbursement rights of the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee thereunder.

If any Note (or portion thereof) has been defeased, the foregoing provisions of this Section 6 will apply only to the non-defeased Notes (or portions thereof). Any Note (or portion thereof) that has been defeased will be repaid solely from the proceeds of the related defeasance collateral.

(b)     Following any period during which the terms of this Section 6 are in effect, in the event that the Mortgage Loan becomes a Corrected Mortgage Loan, or if the applicable Event of Default is no longer existing, or if the Mortgage Loan is restructured in connection with a workout such that the Mortgage Loan is no longer a Specially Serviced Mortgaged Loan and, as restructured, is transferred back to the Servicer and the applicable Event of Default is no longer continuing, then the terms of Section 5 hereof shall again be in effect, subject, however, to the terms of Section 7 hereof. For the avoidance of doubt, so long as the Mortgage Loan remains a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan, the terms of this Section 6 shall continue to be in effect.

7.     Workout. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, but subject to the terms and conditions of the Servicing Agreement and Section 20 and Section 21 of this Agreement, and the obligation to act in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, if any applicable Servicer in connection with a workout or proposed workout of the Mortgage Loan, modifies the terms thereof such that (i) the Mortgage Loan Principal Balance is decreased, (ii) the Mortgage Interest Rate (or the Note A Interest Rate or Note B Interest Rate) is reduced, (iii) payments of interest or principal on the Mortgage Loan are waived, reduced or deferred (other than due solely to an extension of the Maturity Date (that is not a forbearance) pursuant to an executed extension agreement between Lender and the Mortgage Loan Borrower, so long as no other modification under this Section 7 has occurred), or (iv) any other adjustment is made to any of the payment terms of the Mortgage Loan, all payments to each Note A Holder pursuant to Section 5 and Section 6 shall be made as though such workout did not occur, with the payment terms of the A Notes remaining the same as they are on the Closing Date, and the full economic effect of all waivers, reductions or deferrals of amounts due on the Mortgage Loan attributable to such workout shall be borne, first, by the Note B Holder (up to the Note B Principal Balance, together with accrued interest thereon at the Note B Interest Rate and any other amounts due the Note B Holder) and, second, pro rata by the Note A-1 Holder (up to the Note A-1 Principal Balance, together with accrued interest thereon at the Note A-1 Interest Rate, and any other amounts due to the Note A-1 Holder) and the Note A-2 Holder (up to the Note A-2 Principal Balance, together with accrued interest thereon at the Note A-2 Interest Rate, and any other amounts due to the Note A-2 Holder). If a Mortgaged Property shall become an REO Property, the same shall be acquired, managed and operated in substantially the manner provided in the Servicing Agreement, and the priority of distributions among the Note A Holders and the Note B Holder shall continue to be made in accordance with the terms of Section 6 that would be applicable following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default (whether or not the applicable Mortgage Loan Documents then remain in effect), with distributions on account of scheduled interest payments being deemed to be Assumed Scheduled Payments (as such term shall be defined in the Servicing Agreement) for such purpose.

(b)     For purposes of determining the identity of the Controlling Holder (and not for any other purpose, including purposes of calculations set forth in Section 5 and Section 6 hereof),

 -30-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

Appraisal Reduction Amounts shall be allocated first, to reduce the Note B Principal Balance, and then, to reduce the Note A-1 Principal Balance and the Note A-2 Principal Balance, pro rata. The Lead Note Holder (or the Special Servicer on its behalf) shall notify the Holders in writing of any Appraisal Reduction Amount calculated with respect to the Mortgage Loan and any allocation thereof to reduce the Principal Balance of any Note.

8.     Collection Accounts; Payment Procedure. (a) Pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement, the Lead Note Holder shall cause the Servicer to establish and maintain the Collection Account. Each of the Holders hereby directs the Servicer, in accordance with the priorities set forth in Section 5 and Section 6 and subject to the terms of this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement, as applicable, (i) to deposit into the applicable Collection Account within two (2) Business Days after receipt all payments received with respect to the Mortgage Loan and (ii) to remit from the applicable Collection Account (x) for deposit or credit on the Remittance Date all payments received with respect to and allocable to each A Note and Note B, by wire transfer to accounts maintained by each Holder and designated to the Servicer in writing; and (y) for such other purposes and at such times as specified in this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement.

(b)     If any Servicer holding or having distributed any amount received or collected in respect of any Note determines, or a court of competent jurisdiction orders, at any time that any amount received or collected in respect of any Note must, pursuant to any insolvency, bankruptcy, fraudulent conveyance, preference or similar law, be returned to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or paid to any Holder, any Servicer or any other Person, then, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, such Servicer shall not be required to distribute any portion thereof to the Holder of such Note, and such Holder, shall promptly on demand repay to such Servicer the portion thereof which shall have been theretofore distributed to the related Holder, together with interest thereon at such rate, if any, as such Servicer shall have been required to pay to the applicable Mortgage Loan Borrower, the Holders, any other Servicer or such other Person with respect thereto, and, if the amount in question had been advanced by the Servicer, then with interest thereon at the Advance Rate. Each Holder agrees that if at any time it shall receive from any sources whatsoever any payment on account of the Mortgage Loan in excess of its distributable share thereof, it will promptly remit such excess to the Servicer. The Servicer shall have the right to offset any amounts due hereunder from any Holder, with respect to the Mortgage Loan against any future payments due to such Holder under the Mortgage Loan, provided that the obligations of each Holder under this Section 8 are separate and distinct obligations from one another, and in no event shall any Servicer be permitted or required under the Servicing Agreement to enforce the obligations of any Holder against the other Holders. The obligations of each Holder under this Section 8 constitute absolute, unconditional and continuing obligations and each Servicer shall be deemed a third party beneficiary of these provisions.

9.     Advances; Default Interest; Penalty Charges.

(a)     Prior to the Lead Securitization Date, if the Lead Note Holder elects, in its reasonable good faith discretion and in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, to make a Property Advance, the Lead Note Holder shall notify the other Holders promptly, which notice shall set forth the amount of the additional funds required, the date such funds are required and a summary

 -31-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

of the need for such advance. The other Holders shall be required to advance on or before the date specified in the related notice their respective Percentage Interest of such Property Advance. If any Holder fails or refuses to advance the foregoing share of such Property Advance, the Lead Note Holder shall have the right to advance the portion of such Property Advance not advanced by such other Holders. Repayment of any and all such Property Advances made by any Holder together with interest thereon at the Advance Rate, if applicable, shall be paid to such Holder from the collections on the Mortgage Loan in accordance with the priority of payments provided in Section 6 hereof. To the extent that any such Property Advance made by any such Holder becomes a Nonrecoverable Property Advance, each Holder that did not make its Percentage Interest of such Property Advance shall be required to, promptly following notice from the Holder that made such advance, reimburse the Holder that made such advance for non-advancing Holder’s pro rata share of such Nonrecoverable Property with interest thereon at the Advance Rate.

(b)     From and after the Lead Securitization Date, the Servicer and/or the Trustee may be obligated to make Property Advances and (to the extent that such Servicer or Trustee, as applicable, has determined that such Advance, together with interest thereon at the Advance Rate would not constitute a Nonrecoverable Advance (as defined in the Servicing Agreement) if made) the right of such party to reimbursement for any such Property Advances and interest thereon is prior to the rights of the Holders to receive any distributions or amounts recovered with respect to the Mortgage Loan or the Mortgaged Properties to the extent provided in this Agreement and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. To the extent the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, obtains funds from general collections of the Lead Securitization as a reimbursement for a Nonrecoverable Property Advance or any related Advance Interest Amount, the Non-Lead A Note Holder (including any Securitization Trust into which the Non-Lead A Note is deposited) shall be required to, promptly following notice from the Master Servicer, reimburse the Lead Securitization for its pro rata share of such Nonrecoverable Property Advance or Advance Interest Amount.

(c)     If any party to the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement or any Non-Lead Servicing Agreement makes a P&I Advance in respect of any Note, such P&I Advance and any interest accrued thereon shall be reimbursable to such advancing party solely as provided under the terms of this Agreement and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement or Non-Lead Servicing Agreement, as applicable.

10.     Limitation on Liability. Neither the Note A Holders nor any Servicer acting on its behalf shall have any liability to the Note B Holder with respect to Note B, except with respect to losses actually suffered due to the gross negligence, willful misconduct or breach of this Agreement on the part of such Note A Holder or the Servicer. The Note B Holder shall have no liability to any Note A Holder with respect to its respective A Note except with respect to losses actually suffered due to the gross negligence, willful misconduct or breach of this Agreement on the part of the Note B Holder.

Upon the consummation of a Transfer of all or any portion of Note B, the transferring Person shall be released from all liability arising under this Agreement with respect to Note B (or the portion thereof that was the subject of such Transfer), for the period after the effective date of such Transfer (it being understood and agreed that the foregoing release shall not apply in the case of a sale, assignment, transfer or other disposition of a participation interest in Note B as described in clause (b) below) and the transferee shall be the Note B Holder with respect to Note B for all purposes hereunder with all of the rights, interests and obligations related thereto. The foregoing provision of this Section 18(a) shall not apply to a Transfer of Note B to the Lead Securitization Trust.

(b)     In the case of any sale, assignment, transfer or other disposition of a participation interest in Note B, (i) the transferring Note B Holder’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) the transferring Note B Holder shall remain solely responsible for the performance of such obligations, and (iii) the Lead Note Holder shall continue to deal solely and directly with the transferring Note B Holder in connection with its rights and obligations under this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement, and all amounts payable hereunder shall be determined as if the Note B Holder had not sold such participation interest; provided, however, that if the applicable participant is a Qualified Institutional Lender but not the Mortgage Loan Borrower or a Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party (and delivers to the Lead Note Holder a certification from an authorized officer confirming the foregoing status), then, the Note B Holder by written notice to the Lead Note Holder, may delegate to such participant the Note B Holder’s right to exercise the rights of the Controlling Holder hereunder and under the Servicing Agreement; provided, further, however, that upon the occurrence of a Control Appraisal Event, the aforesaid delegation of rights shall terminate and be of no further force and effect.

(c)     Each Note A Holder agrees that it shall not Transfer all or any portion of its respective A Note, except as follows: (i) to a Qualified Institutional Lender, (ii) to the Depositor, or any other Person designated by such Note A Holder to act as the depositor and/or any other Affiliate of such Note A Holder in connection with a Securitization or to the trustee in connection with a Securitization of the related A Note, (iii) to a purchaser upon a foreclosure, sale or other liquidation of a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or an REO Property, as expressly provided in the Servicing Agreement or (iv) as otherwise expressly provided or contemplated by the Servicing

Agreement. In addition, each Note A Holder may split its respective A Note into multiple participations without the consent of the Note B Holder or any other Person (it being understood that no participant shall be entitled to amounts other than what is allocated to the related A Note hereunder had such Note A Holder not participated its related A Note). Notwithstanding the foregoing, each A Note may not be Transferred to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party without the prior written consent of the Note B Holder and, following the Lead Securitization Date, a Rating Agency Confirmation (it being understood that any costs and expenses incurred in connection with any such transfer following the Lead Securitization Date shall be borne by the related Note A Holder). Except with respect to the Transfer referred to in clause (ii) of the first sentence, any such Transfer shall be made upon at least three (3) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Note B Holder.

(d)     No Note A Holder shall give its consent to any action (whether through marketing, advertising, public disclosure or otherwise) that would result in potential investors becoming aware of any proposed Non-Lead Securitization until (i) the establishment of the time of the contract of sale for each purchaser of certificates for the Lead Securitization or (ii) the Lead Note Holder gives its consent to such marketing, advertising, disclosure or other related activity.

(e)     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Note B Holder may pledge (a “Pledge”) Note B or any interest therein to any entity (other than the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party) which has extended a credit facility to the Note B Holder or has entered into a repurchase agreement with the Note B Holder and that, in each case, is either a Qualified Institutional Lender or a financial institution whose long-term unsecured debt is rated at least “A” (or the equivalent) or better by each Rating Agency (a “Note Pledgee”), on terms and conditions set forth in this Section 18(d), it being further agreed that a financing provided by a Note Pledgee to the Note B Holder or any Affiliate which controls the Note B Holder that is secured by the Note B Holder’s interest in Note B and is structured as a repurchase arrangement, shall qualify as a “Pledge” hereunder, provided all applicable terms and conditions of this Section 18 are complied with; provided that a Note Pledgee which is not a Qualified Institutional Lender may not take title to Note B after a Securitization without a Rating Agency Confirmation and no Note Pledgee may take title to Note B without satisfying the requirements for transfer set forth in this Section 18. Upon written notice, if any, by the Note B Holder to the Lead Note Holder that a Pledge has been effected (including the name and address of the applicable Note Pledgee), the Lead Note Holder agrees to acknowledge receipt of such notice and thereafter agrees: (i) to give such Note Pledgee written notice of any default by the Note B Holder in respect of its obligations under this Agreement of which default such Lead Note Holder has actual knowledge and which notice shall be given simultaneously with the giving of such notice to the Note B Holder; (ii) to allow such Note Pledgee a period of ten (10) Business Days to cure a default by the Note B Holder in respect of its obligations to hereunder, but such Note Pledgee shall not be obligated to cure any such default; (iii) that no amendment, modification, waiver or termination of this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement (if the Note B Holder had the right to consent to such amendment, modification, waiver or termination pursuant to the terms hereof) shall be effective against such Note Pledgee without the written consent of such Note Pledgee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed and which consent shall be deemed to be given if Note Pledgee shall fail to respond to any request for

 -38-

Co-Lender Agreement

consent to any such amendment, modification, waiver or termination within 10 days after request therefor; (iv) that such Lead Note Holder shall accept any cure by such Note Pledgee of any default of the Note B Holder which the Note B Holder has the right to effect hereunder, as if such cure were made by the Note B Holder; (v) that such Lead Note Holder shall deliver to Note Pledgee such estoppel certificate(s) as Note Pledgee shall reasonably request, provided that any such certificate(s) shall be in a form reasonably satisfactory to such Lead Note Holder; and (vi) that, upon written notice (a “Redirection Notice”) to such Note A Holder and any Servicer by such Note Pledgee that the Note B Holder is in default beyond any applicable cure periods with respect to the Note B Holder’s obligations to such Note Pledgee pursuant to the applicable credit agreement or other agreements relating to the Pledge between the Note B Holder and such Note Pledgee (which notice need not be joined in or confirmed by the Note B Holder), and until such Redirection Notice is withdrawn or rescinded by such Note Pledgee, Note Pledgee shall be entitled to receive any payments that any Servicer would otherwise be obligated to pay to the Note B Holder from time to time pursuant to this Agreement or any Servicing Agreement. The Note B Holder hereby unconditionally and absolutely releases the Lead Note Holder from any liability to the Note B Holder on account of such Lead Note Holder’s (or Servicer’s) compliance with any Redirection Notice believed by the Lead Note Holder in good faith to have been delivered by a Note Pledgee. Note Pledgee shall be permitted to exercise fully its rights and remedies against the Note B Holder (and accept an assignment in lieu of foreclosure as to such collateral), in accordance with applicable law and this Agreement. In such event, the Lead Note Holder shall recognize such Note Pledgee (and any transferee (other than the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party) which is also a Qualified Institutional Lender at any foreclosure or similar sale held by such Note Pledgee or any transfer in lieu of foreclosure), and its successor and assigns, as the successor to the Note B Holder’s rights, remedies and obligations under this Agreement, and any such Note Pledgee or Qualified Institutional Lender shall assume in writing the obligations of the Note B Holder hereunder accruing from and after such Transfer (i.e., realization upon the collateral by such Note Pledgee) and agrees to be bound by the terms and provisions of this Agreement. The rights of a Note Pledgee under this Section 18(e) shall remain effective as to the Lead Note Holder unless and until such Note Pledgee shall have notified the Lead Note Holder in writing that its interest in Note B has terminated.

19.     Other Business Activities of the Holders. Each of the Holders acknowledges that the other Holders may make loans or otherwise extend credit to, and generally engage in any kind of business with, any Affiliate of the Mortgage Loan Borrower (“Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Parties”), and receive payments on such other loans or extensions of credit to the Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Parties and otherwise act with respect thereto freely and without accountability in the same manner as if this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby were not in effect.

20.     Exercise of Remedies by the Servicer.

(a)     Each of the Holders acknowledges that, subject to the terms of this Agreement (including without limitation, the Controlling Holder’s rights under Section 21 hereof) and the Servicing Agreement, (i) the Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer or Trustee (if any) on its behalf) may exercise or refrain from exercising any rights that such Lead Note Holder (or such Servicer or Trustee (if any)) may have hereunder or under the Servicing Agreement in a manner

 -39-

Co-Lender Agreement

that may be adverse to the interests of the other Holders, so long as such actions are in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices and the other terms of this Agreement, (ii) the Lead Note Holder shall have no liability whatsoever to the other Holders as a result of such Lead Note Holder’s (or any Servicer’s or Trustee’s) exercise of such rights or any omission by such Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer or Trustee) to exercise such rights, except as expressly provided herein or for acts or omissions that are taken or omitted to be taken by such Lead Note Holder that constitute the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Lead Note Holder or a breach of this Agreement, and (iii) the Servicer and the Special Servicer shall (and shall be required under the Servicing Agreement to) service and administer the Mortgage Loan on behalf of each Note A Holder and the Note B Holder (as a collective whole) in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, taking into account the interests of each Note A Holder and the Note B Holder; but in all cases giving due consideration to the fact that Note B is subject and subordinate to each A Note in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Each Note A Holder and the Note B Holder agree that the Servicer, to the extent consistent with the terms of this Agreement (including, without limitation, Section 21) and after the Lead Securitization Date subject to and in accordance with the Servicing Agreement, shall have the sole and exclusive authority (in each case, subject to the Accepted Servicing Practices and the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, including without limitation the rights of the Controlling Holder) with respect to the administration of, and exercise of rights and remedies with respect to, the Mortgage Loan, including, without limitation, the sole and exclusive authority (i) to modify or waive any of the terms of the Mortgage Loan Documents, (ii) to consent to any action or failure to act by the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any party to the Mortgage Loan Documents, (iii) to vote all claims with respect to the Mortgage Loan in any bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar proceedings and (iv) to take legal action to enforce or protect the Holders’ interests with respect to the Mortgage Loan or to refrain from exercising any powers or rights under the Mortgage Loan Documents, including the right at any time to call or waive any Events of Default, or accelerate or refrain from accelerating the Mortgage Loan or institute any foreclosure action and in all cases acting in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices and the terms of this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement, and except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement, the other Holders shall have no voting, consent or other rights whatsoever with respect to the Lead Note Holder’s or Servicer’s administration of, or exercise of its rights and remedies with respect to, the Mortgage Loan. Each Holder agrees that it shall have no right to, and hereby presently and irrevocably assigns and conveys to the Lead Note Holder and the Servicer and the Special Servicer the rights, if any, that such Holder has (i) to declare or cause the Lead Note Holder or the Servicer to declare an Event of Default under the Mortgage Loan (ii) to exercise any remedies with respect to the Mortgage Loan, including, without limitation, filing or causing the Lead Note Holder or the Servicer to file any bankruptcy petition against the Mortgage Loan Borrower or (iii) to vote any claims with respect to the Mortgage Loan in any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar type of proceeding of the Mortgage Loan Borrower. Each Holder shall, from time to time, execute such documents as the Lead Note Holder, the Servicer or the Special Servicer shall reasonably request to evidence such assignment with respect to the rights described in clause (iii) of the preceding sentence. Except when acting in the capacity of trustee or paying agent, the Lead Note Holder shall not have any fiduciary duty to the other Holders in connection with the administration of the Mortgage Loan but shall in all events be obligated to act in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices. Each Holder expressly and irrevocably waives for itself and any Person claiming through or under such Holder any and

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

all rights that it may have under Section 1315 of the New York Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law or the provisions of any similar law that purports to give a junior noteholder, mortgagee or loan participant the right to initiate any loan enforcement or foreclosure proceedings.

(b)     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the exercise by the Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer or the Trustee (if any) acting on its behalf) of its rights under this Section 20 shall be subject in all respects to any sections of the Servicing Agreement governing REMIC administration, and in no event shall the Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer or the Trustee (if any) acting on its behalf) be permitted to take any action or refrain from taking any action which would violate the laws of any applicable jurisdiction, breach the Mortgage Loan Documents, be inconsistent with Accepted Servicing Practices or violate any other provisions of the Servicing Agreement or cause the arrangement evidenced hereby not to be treated as a “grantor trust” for Federal income tax purposes. The Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer or the Trustee (if any) acting on its behalf) shall exercise such rights and powers described in this Section 20 on the understanding that the Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer or the Trustee (if any) acting on its behalf) shall administer the Mortgage Loan in a manner consistent with the Servicing Agreement and this Agreement, provided that neither the Lead Note Holder nor any Servicer or the Trustee (if any) acting on its behalf shall be liable to the other Holders with respect to anything the Lead Note Holder or such Servicer or the Trustee (if any) may do or omit to do in relation to the Mortgage Loan, other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Lead Note Holder and any Servicer or the Trustee (if any) acting on its behalf may rely on the advice of legal counsel, accountants and other experts (including those retained by the Mortgage Loan Borrower) and upon any written communication or telephone conversation which the Lead Note Holder or such Servicer or the Trustee (if any) believes to be genuine and correct or to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person.

(c)     If title to a Mortgaged Property is acquired for the benefit of the Holders in foreclosure, by deed-in-lieu of foreclosure or upon abandonment or reclamation from bankruptcy, the deed or certificate of sale shall be taken in the name of the Lead Note Holder or its nominee (which shall not include any Servicer) on behalf of the Holders. The applicable Servicer, on behalf of the Holders, shall dispose of any REO Property utilizing reasonable best efforts, consistent with Accepted Servicing Practices, to maximize the proceeds of such disposal to the Holders (as a collective whole) if and when such Servicer determines, consistent with Accepted Servicing Practices, that such disposal would be in the best economic interest of the Holders (as a collective whole). The applicable Servicer shall (and shall be required under the Servicing Agreement to) manage, conserve, protect and operate each REO Property for the Holders solely for the purpose of its prompt disposition and sale in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices.

(d)     The applicable Servicer shall have full power and authority, subject only to the specific requirements and prohibitions of this Agreement, to do any and all things in connection with any REO Property as are consistent with Accepted Servicing Practices and the terms of this Agreement, all on such terms and for such period as such Servicer deems to be in the best interests of Holders (as a collective whole) and, in connection therewith, such Servicer shall only agree to the payment of management fees that are consistent with general market standards or to terms that are more favorable to the Holders. The applicable Servicer shall (and shall be required under the Servicing Agreement to) segregate and hold all revenues received by it with

 -41-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

respect to any REO Property separate and apart from its own funds and general assets and shall establish and maintain with respect to any REO Property a segregated custodial account (each, an “REO Account”). The applicable Servicer shall (and shall be required under the Servicing Agreement to) deposit or cause to be deposited in the REO Account within one Business Day after receipt all revenues received by it with respect to any REO Property (other than Liquidation Proceeds, which shall be remitted to the Collection Account), and shall withdraw therefrom funds necessary for the proper operation,

management and maintenance of such REO Property and for other Costs with respect to such REO Property, including:

(i)     all insurance premiums due and payable in respect of any REO Property;

(ii)    all real estate taxes and assessments in respect of any REO Property that may result in the imposition of a lien thereon;

(iii)   all ground rents in respect of any REO Property;

(iv)   all costs and expenses reasonable and necessary to protect, maintain, manage, operate, repair and restore any REO Property; and

(v)     to the extent that such REO Proceeds are insufficient for the purposes set forth in clauses (i) through (iv) above and the applicable Servicer has provided written notice of such shortfall to the Holders of the necessity to take actions pursuant to this subsection (d), any expenditure associated with such actions taken by the applicable Servicer shall be payable by the Holders at their option pursuant to Section 9.

(e)     The applicable Servicer shall contract with an independent contractor, the fees and expenses of which shall be an expense of the Holders and payable out of REO Proceeds, for the operation and management of any REO Property, within forty-five (45) days after the Holders’ acquisition thereof (unless the Holders approve otherwise), provided that:

(i)     the terms and conditions of any such contract shall be reasonable and consistent with the terms of this Agreement and customary for the area and type of property and shall not be inconsistent herewith;

(ii)     any such contract shall require, or shall be administered to require, that the independent contractor pay all costs and expenses incurred in connection with the operation and management of such REO Property, including those listed above, and remit all related revenues (net of such costs and expenses) to the applicable Servicer as soon as practicable, but in no event later than thirty (30) days following the receipt thereof by such independent contractor;

(iii)    none of the provisions of this subsection (e) relating to any such contract or to actions taken through any such independent contractor shall be deemed to relieve the applicable Servicer of any of its duties and obligations to the Holders or the Lead Note Holder on behalf of the Holders with respect to the operation and management of any such REO Property; and

 -42-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

(iv)   the applicable Servicer shall be obligated with respect thereto to the same extent as if it alone were performing all duties and obligations in connection with the operation and management of such REO Property.

(f)     The applicable Servicer shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with any independent contractor performing services for it related to its duties and obligations hereunder for indemnification of such Servicer by such independent contractor, and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification. When and as necessary, the applicable Servicer shall send to the Holders a statement prepared by the applicable Servicer setting forth the amount of net income or net loss, as determined for federal income tax purposes, resulting from the operation and management of a trade or business on, the furnishing or rendering of a non-customary service to the tenants of, or the receipt of any other amount not constituting rents in respect of, any REO Property.

(g)     With respect to any Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property which the applicable Servicer has determined to sell in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, the applicable Servicer shall deliver to the Holders an officers’ certificate to the effect that, the applicable Servicer has determined to sell such Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property in accordance with this subsection (g). The applicable Servicer may then offer to sell to any Person the Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan which is in Default or the REO Property (and shall on a monthly basis advise the Holders in writing of the status of such Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property) or, subject to the following sentence, purchase any such Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property (in each case at the Defaulted Mortgage Loan Purchase Price), but shall, in any event, so offer to sell any REO Property no later than the time determined by the applicable Servicer to be sufficient to result in the sale of such REO Property within the period specified in the REMIC Provisions. The applicable Servicer shall deliver such officers’ certificate and give the Holders not less than ten (10) Business Days’ prior written notice of its intention to sell any Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property, in which case the applicable Servicer shall accept the highest offer received from any Person for the Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or any REO Property in an amount at least equal to the Defaulted Mortgage Loan Purchase Price or, at its option, if it has received no offer at least equal to the Defaulted Mortgage Loan Purchase Price therefor, purchase the Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property at the Defaulted Mortgage Loan Purchase Price.

(h)     In the absence of any such offer at the Defaulted Mortgage Purchase Price, or purchase by the applicable Servicer at the Defaulted Mortgage Purchase Price, such Servicer shall accept the highest offer received from any Person that is determined by such Servicer to be a fair price for such Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property; provided that the Lead Note Holder (or the applicable Servicer, if the applicable Servicer or any Affiliate of the applicable Servicer is not an offeror) shall be entitled to engage, at the expense of the Holders, an Appraiser to determine whether the highest offer is a fair price. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, neither the Mortgage Loan Borrower nor any Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party may make an offer or purchase any Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or any REO Property pursuant hereto.

 -43-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

(i)     The applicable Servicer shall not be obligated by either of the foregoing paragraphs or otherwise to accept the highest offer if the applicable Servicer determines, in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, that rejection of such offer would be in the best interests of the Holders as a collective whole. In addition, the applicable Servicer may accept a lower offer if it determines, in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, that acceptance of such offer would be in the best interests of the Holders as a collective whole (for example, if the prospective buyer making the lower offer is more likely to perform its obligations, or the terms offered by the prospective buyer making the lower offer are more favorable), provided that the offeror is not the applicable Servicer or an Affiliate of the applicable Servicer. The applicable Servicer shall in no event sell the Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or the REO Property other than for cash.

(j)     Subject to the other provisions of this Section 20, the applicable Servicer shall act on behalf of the Holders in negotiating and taking other action necessary or appropriate in connection with the sale of a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property, including the collection of all amounts payable in connection therewith. Any sale of a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property shall be without recourse to, or representation or warranty by, any Servicer or any Holder, and, if such sale is consummated in accordance with the duties of the applicable Servicer pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, no such Person who so performed shall have any liability to any Holders with respect to the purchase price therefor accepted by the applicable Servicer.

(k)     The proceeds of any sale of the Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or REO Property after deduction of the direct out-of-pocket expenses of such sale incurred in connection therewith shall be promptly, and in any event within one (1) Business Day following receipt thereof, deposited in the Collection Account. Within thirty (30) days after the sale of the REO Property, the applicable Servicer shall provide to the Holders a statement of accounting for such REO Property, including without limitation, (i) the date of disposition of the REO Property, (ii) the gross sales price, the selling and other expenses and the net sales price, (iii) accrued interest on the Note A Principal Balance at the applicable Note A Interest Rate, and on the Note B Principal Balance at the applicable Note B Interest Rate calculated from the date of acquisition to the disposition date, and (iv) such other information as the Holders may reasonably request. The applicable Servicer shall file information returns regarding the abandonment or foreclosure of a Mortgaged Property with the Internal Revenue Service at the time and in the manner required by the Code.

(l)     The provisions of subsections (c) through (k) of this Section 20 shall be of no further force and effect from and after the Lead Securitization Date, and the analogous provisions of the Servicing Agreement shall control.

21.     Certain Powers of the Controlling Holder. The following provisions shall apply during the term of this Agreement:

(a)     The Controlling Holder shall be entitled to appoint (or act as) a “directing lender” (the “Directing Holder”) with respect to the Mortgage Loan and to exercise the rights and powers granted to the Directing Holder and the Controlling Holder hereunder and under the

 -44-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

Servicing Agreement (such designation to be made by written notice to the Lead Note Holder); provided that if the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party owns any portion of Note B, the ownership interests of such Person shall be deemed to equal zero for the purposes of determining which owners can vote to elect the Directing Holder; and provided, further, that in no event may the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party serve as the Directing Holder. Such designation shall remain in effect until it is revoked by the Controlling Holder by a writing delivered to each of the other parties hereto.

(b)     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein (but subject to Section 21(d)), the Lead Note Holder shall, prior to taking any Major Decision, be required to notify in writing the Directing Holder of any proposal to take any of such actions (and to provide the Directing Holder with such information requested by such Directing Holder as may be necessary in the reasonable judgment of such Directing Holder in order to make a judgment) and to receive the written approval of the Directing Holder (which approval may be withheld in its sole discretion);

(c)     If the Directing Holder fails to notify the Lead Note Holder of its approval or disapproval of any such Major Decision within ten (10) Business Days after delivery to the Directing Holder by the Lead Note Holder of written notice (“Action Notice”) of such a Major Decision together with any information requested by the Directing Holder pursuant to this Section 21(b) or Section 21(c), then if the Directing Holder fails to approve or reject the Major Decision within such ten (10) Business Day period, the Directing Holder’s approval will be deemed to have been given for such Major Decision. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any amounts funded by any Holder under the Mortgage Loan Documents as a result of (1) the making of any protective Advances or (2) interest accruals or accretions and any compounding thereof (including default interest) with respect to the Notes shall not at any time be deemed to require prior notice to the Directing Holder (except as otherwise expressly required by this Agreement) or otherwise contravene this subsection. To the extent the Mortgage Loan Borrower requests or the Servicer or Special Servicer structures, as part of a workout or otherwise, an extension of the Mortgage Loan for two or more years beyond the Maturity Date, the Servicer or Special Servicer, as applicable, shall obtain the prior written consent of the Lead Note Holder (in the same manner as the Directing Holder) in addition to the consent of the Directing Holder. The provisions of Section 21(c) shall be of no further force and effect from and after the Lead Securitization Date, and the analogous provisions of the Servicing Agreement shall control.

(d)     With respect to any proposed action requiring consultation with or approval of the Directing Holder pursuant to Section 21(b), the Lead Note Holder shall prepare a summary of such proposed action and an analysis of whether or not such action is reasonably likely to produce a greater recovery on a present value basis than not taking such action, setting forth the basis on which the Lead Note Holder made such determination, and shall promptly provide to each Holder copies of such summary and any other material documents and items reasonably necessary to make such determination by hard copy or electronic means on a timely basis. If any such proposed action is disapproved by the Directing Holder, the Servicer shall propose an alternate action (based on any counter-proposals received from the Directing Holder, to the extent such counter-proposal is consistent with Section 21(d) or, if no such counter-proposal is received by the Servicer when the disapproval of the Directing Holder is delivered to the Servicer, then based on any alternate course

 -45-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

of action that the Lead Note Holder may deem appropriate) until the approval of the Directing Holder is obtained; provided that if the Servicer and Directing Holder do not agree on a proposed course of action within sixty (60) days after the date on which the Servicer first proposed a course of action and the counter-proposals received from the Directing Holder would, in the judgment of the Special Servicer, be permitted to be ignored by the Special Servicer in accordance with clause (d) below), then after giving due consideration (subject to Section 21(d) hereof) to the alternatives and counterproposals, if any, provided by the Directing Holder the Lead Note Holder shall take such action as it deems appropriate in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, (i) the Lead Note Holder determines that emergency action is necessary to protect a Mortgaged Property or the interests of the Holders (as a collective whole) at a time earlier than the time that such Servicer would otherwise be entitled to take such action pursuant to this Section 21(c) or otherwise under this Agreement and (ii) such action requires consultation with and/or consent of the Directing Holder, then it shall contact the Directing Holder (by telephone, email or fax) promptly and shall discuss (unless the Directing Holder shall fail to respond in a reasonable time frame under the circumstances) the proposed action with such Directing Holder and, if the consent of the Directing Holder would ordinarily be required, attempt to reach agreement within the revised time frame prior to taking the proposed action, but shall be entitled to take the necessary emergency action within the necessary time frame regardless of whether it has been able to contact or obtained the agreement of the Directing Holder. If such emergency action is taken, the Lead Note Holder will promptly notify the Directing Holder of the action so taken, the Servicer’s reasons for determining that immediate action was necessary and how the action differs from the proposed actions, if any, that had theretofore been approved by the Directing Holder. The provisions of Section 21(d) shall be of no further force and effect from and after the Lead Securitization Date, and the analogous provisions of the Servicing Agreement shall control.

(e)     Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no advice, direction or objection from or by the Directing Holder, as contemplated by this Section 21, or no advice, direction or objection, if any, from or by any Non-Controlling Holder, may (and the related Holder shall ignore and act without regard to any such advice, direction or objection that such Holder (or Servicer on its behalf) has determined, in its reasonable, good faith judgment, would): (A) require or cause such Holder to violate applicable law, the terms of the Mortgage Loan Documents or any section of this Agreement or any Servicing Agreement, including such Servicer’s obligation to act in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, (B) result in the imposition of federal income tax on any Securitization Trust, cause any REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC, (C) expose any Securitization Trust, any certificateholder of any related Securitization, the Depositor or the depositor of any Non-Lead Securitization, the Holders, the Servicer, the Trustee or the trustee of any Non-Lead Securitization, the Certificate Administrator or any certificate administrator of any Non-Lead Securitization, the Operating Advisor or the operating advisor of any Non-Lead Securitization or their respective Affiliates, members, managers, officers, directors, employees or agents, to any material claim, suit or liability or (D) materially expand the scope of the Servicer’s responsibilities under this Agreement or the related Servicing Agreement.

(f)     No Controlling Holder or Directing Holder shall owe any fiduciary duty to the Trustee, any Servicer, any Special Servicer, any certificateholder in any Securitization, or the

other Holders. No Controlling Holder or Directing Holder shall have any liability to any the Trustee, any Servicer, any Special Servicer, any certificateholder in any Securitization or the other Holders for any action taken, or for refraining from the taking of any action or the giving of any consent or for errors in judgment. By its acceptance of a Note in the Mortgage Loan, each Holder shall be deemed to have confirmed its understanding that (i) a Directing Holder may take or refrain from taking actions that favor the interests of the related Controlling Holder or its affiliates over the other Holder, (ii) a Controlling Holder may take or refrain from taking actions (or cause the related Directing Holder to take or refrain from taking actions) that favor its interest or the interests of its affiliates over the other Holder, (iii) that a Controlling Holder or Directing Holder may have special relationships and interests that conflict with the interest of the other Holder and shall be deemed to have agreed to take no action against a Controlling Holder, a Directing Holder or any of their officers, directors, employees, principals or agents as a result of such a special relationships or conflicts, (iv) that no Controlling Holder shall be liable by reason of its having acted or refrained from acting solely in its interest or in the interest of its affiliates, and (v) that no Directing Holder shall be liable by reason of its having acted or refrained from acting solely in the interests of the related Controlling Holder or its affiliates.

(g)     The Directing Holder shall have the right at any time and from time to time, with or without cause, to replace the Special Servicer then acting with respect to the Mortgage Loan and appoint a replacement Special Servicer in lieu thereof. Any such replacement Special Servicer shall be a Qualified Servicer in accordance with this Section 21(g). The Directing Holder shall designate a Person to serve as Special Servicer by delivering to the Non-Controlling Holders, the Servicer and the then existing Special Servicer a written notice stating such designation and by satisfying the other conditions required under the Servicing Agreement (including a Rating Agency Confirmation, if required by the terms of the Servicing Agreement), and by delivering to any Holder that is a Non-Lead Securitization a Rating Agency Confirmation with respect to any rated securities issued in such Non-Lead Securitization. The Directing Holder shall promptly pay any expenses incurred by the Lead Note Holder in connection with such replacement. The Directing Holder shall notify the other parties hereto of its termination of the then currently serving Special Servicer and its appointment of a replacement Special Servicer in accordance with this Section 21(g). The fees payable to any replacement Special Servicer contemplated in this Section 21(g) at any time, following the Lead Securitization, when the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement is no longer in effect, shall be at then market rates for such services. Upon the occurrence of the Lead Securitization governing the servicing of the Mortgage Loan, the initial Special Servicer designated in the applicable Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement shall serve as the initial Special Servicer. If a Servicer Termination Event on the part of the Special Servicer has occurred that affects the Non-Controlling Holder, the Non-Controlling Holder shall have the right to direct the Trustee (or at any time that the Mortgage Loan is no longer included in a Securitization, the Controlling Holder) to terminate the Special Servicer under the applicable Servicing Agreement solely with respect to the Mortgage Loan pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of the Servicing Agreement. The Controlling Holder and the Non-Controlling Holder acknowledge and agree that any successor special servicer appointed to replace the Special Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loan that was terminated for cause at the Non-Controlling Holder’s direction cannot at any time be the person (or an Affiliate thereof) that was so terminated without the prior written consent of the Non-Controlling Holder.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Controlling Holder agrees and acknowledges that the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement may contain provisions such that the Special Servicer could be terminated under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement based on a recommendation by the Operating Advisor if (A) the Operating Advisor determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that (1) the Special Servicer has failed to comply with Accepted Servicing Practices and (2) a replacement of the Special Servicer would be in the best interest of the holders of certificates issued under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement (as a collective whole) and (B) an affirmative vote of requisite certificate holders is obtained. The Controlling Holder will retain its right to remove and replace the Special Servicer, but the Controlling Holder may not restore a Special Servicer that has been removed in accordance with the preceding sentence.

(h)     Notwithstanding the foregoing, within ten (10) Business Days after receipt by the Note B Holder of notice indicating that the Note B Holder is no longer the Controlling Holder, the Note B Holder may, at its option, post with the Lead Note Holder (a) cash collateral for the benefit of, and reasonably acceptable to the Lead Note Holder or (b) a Letter of Credit (in each case, if there has been a Securitization, together with documentation reasonably acceptable to the Lead Note Holder to create and perfect a first priority security interest in favor of the Securitization in such collateral) (to be held by the Lead Note Holder in a segregated securities account solely and exclusively in the name of each Note A Holder, meeting the Rating Agency criteria for an “eligible account” on behalf of each Note A Holder) in an amount which, when added to and for this purpose considered a part of the appraised value of the Mortgaged Properties, will cause the Note B Holder to remain the Controlling Holder (such cash or Letter of Credit, “Reserve Collateral”). The Note B Holder may make such election upon written notice to the Lead Note Holder of its intention to post Reserve Collateral, and upon notifying the Lead Note Holder of such intention, the Note B Holder shall post such Reserve Collateral as quickly as practicable (but in no event more than three (3) Business Days following the receipt of the above notice) by delivering such Reserve Collateral to the Lead Note Holder. The Note B Holder shall grant to and create in favor of each Note A Holder a first priority perfected pledge and security interest in the Reserve Collateral in a manner reasonably satisfactory to the Lead Note Holder. The Note B Holder shall provide an opinion to the Lead Note Holder, in form and substance and from counsel reasonably acceptable to the Lead Note Holder, regarding the validity, perfection and priority of each Note A Holder’s interest in any Reserve Collateral. In addition, the Note B Holder shall pay or cause to be paid any and all reasonable out of pocket costs and expenses incurred by each Note A Holder (and any servicing party on its behalf) associated with the delivery and/or pledge of such Reserve Collateral, including the costs and expenses of any opinion of counsel. Upon the posting of such Reserve Collateral and satisfaction of the other conditions set forth above, the Note B Holder may exercise all of the rights of the Controlling Holder hereunder; provided, however, that such posting of such collateral and such satisfaction of conditions will not prevent the Note B Holder from losing its status as the Controlling Holder again (provided that such collateral shall be taken into account in determining the Mortgaged Properties’ value when calculating whether the Note B Holder is the Controlling Holder), in which event the foregoing provisions of this paragraph will not again apply and the Note B Holder may not again post Reserve Collateral. Any Reserve Collateral must be treated as an “outside reserve fund” for purposes of the REMIC provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and such property (and the right to reimbursement of any amounts with respect thereto from a REMIC) will be beneficially owned by the Note B Holder, who will be taxed on all income with respect thereto. The

 -48-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

provisions of Section 21(h) will be of no further force and effect from and after the Lead Securitization Date.

(i)     Following a Final Recovery Determination with respect to the Mortgage Loan and application of all proceeds of the liquidation of the Mortgage Loan, a Mortgaged Property or any REO Property, the Lead Note Holder may draw on or liquidate the Reserve Collateral and apply the proceeds thereof to reimburse each Note A Holder for any Trust Fund Expense or Realized Loss borne or experienced by each Note A Holder, plus interest thereon from the date such Trust Fund Expenses or Realized Loss was borne or experienced to the date of reimbursement. Within ten (10) Business Days following such Final Recovery Determination and application, the Lead Note Holder shall pay any remaining portion of such proceeds of the Reserve Collateral to the Note B Holder. The provisions of Section 21(i) shall be of no further force and effect from and after the Lead Securitization Date.

(j)     Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Letter of Credit is posted as Reserve Collateral, then Note B Holder shall provide a replacement Letter of Credit from an Approved Bank in form and substance satisfactory to the Lead Note Holder and each of such Rating Agencies (i) at least fifteen (15) Business Days before the expiration of the delivered Letter of Credit, and (ii) if the issuer of such Letter of Credit is at any time not an Approved Bank, within five (5) Business Days following written notice from the Lead Note Holder to such effect. If the Note B Holder does not effect such a replacement within the periods set forth in the preceding sentence, the Lead Note Holder shall be entitled immediately thereupon to draw on such Letter of Credit to the full extent of the amount then remaining available thereunder, in which case the Lead Note Holder shall hold the proceeds of such draw as Reserve Collateral and may hold and apply such Reserve Collateral in the manner and for the purposes otherwise set forth above and below. The provisions of Section 21(j) will be of no further force and effect from and after the Lead Securitization Date.

22.     Further Assurances. Each Holder acknowledges and agrees that each Holder may sell all or any portion of its respective Note, subject to the rights of the other Holders and the terms of this Agreement, and the related Mortgage Loan Documents in connection with the related Securitization. At the request and at the sole cost and expense of a requesting Holder, and to the extent not already required to be provided by the other Holders under this Agreement, each Holder shall reasonably cooperate with such requesting Holder and take such steps as may be reasonably required by such requesting Holder or any Rating Agency in order to satisfy the market standards to which the requesting Holder customarily adheres or which may be reasonably required by the Rating Agencies in connection with the related Securitization. Such cooperation shall include, without limitation, each Holder’s agreement to:

(a)     execute such amendments to this Agreement as may be requested by the requesting Holder or the Rating Agencies to effect the related Securitization, provided that no such amendments shall materially and adversely affect any of the rights or remedies granted to the Note B Holder hereunder (including, without limitation, the timing and amount of payment and the rights granted to a “Controlling Holder” or “Directing Holder”) or increase the obligations of such Holder hereunder;

 -49-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

(b)     cooperate with the reasonable requests from third-party service providers engaged by the requesting Holder to obtain, collect, and deliver information requested or required by such Note A Holder or the Rating Agencies in connection with the Holders, the Notes or the Mortgage Loan; and

(c)     execute amendments to the Mortgage Loan Documents to further sever the Notes.

No Holder shall take any action or refrain from taking any action that would violate any law of any applicable jurisdiction, would be inconsistent with the Accepted Servicing Practices or would violate the REMIC Provisions of the Servicing Agreement or any other provision of this Agreement.

23.     Reserved.

24.     No Pledge or Loan. This Agreement shall not be deemed to represent a pledge of any interest in the Mortgage Loan by the Note A Holders to the Note B Holder, or a loan from the Note B Holder to the Note A Holders. The Note B Holder shall not have any interest in any property taken as security for the Mortgage Loan; provided, however, that if any such property or the proceeds thereof shall be applied in respect of payments due under the Mortgage Loan, then the Note B Holder shall be entitled to receive its share of such application in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and/or the Servicing Agreement. The Holders acknowledge and agree that the Mortgage Loan represents a single “claim” under Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code, and that the Note B Holder shall not be a separate creditor of the Mortgage Loan Borrower under the Bankruptcy Code.

25.     Governing Law; Waiver of Jury Trial. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE RESPECTIVE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH AND GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPLICABLE TO CONTRACTS MADE AND TO BE PERFORMED ENTIRELY WITHIN SUCH STATE. EACH OF THE PARTIES HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT.

26.     Modifications. This Agreement shall not be modified, cancelled or terminated except by an instrument in writing signed by the parties hereto. The party seeking modification of this Agreement shall be solely responsible for any and all reasonable expenses that may arise in order to modify this Agreement. Additionally, from and after a Securitization, the Holders shall not amend or modify this Agreement without first receiving (i) an opinion of counsel experienced in REMIC matters that such amendment or modification, in and of itself, would not adversely affect the REMIC status of the Mortgage Loan or this Agreement, and (ii) a Rating Agency Confirmation, except that no Rating Agency Confirmation shall be required in connection with a modification (x) prior to the Lead Securitization Date, (y) to cure any ambiguity, to correct or supplement any provision herein that may be defective or inconsistent with any other provisions herein or with the Servicing Agreement, or (z) to make other provisions with respect to matters or questions arising under this Agreement, which shall not be inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement, and (iii) if such modification, cancellation or termination would adversely affect the

 -50-

rights or materially affect the duties of any Servicer or Trustee, the written consent of such affected party.

27.     Successors and Assigns; Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns; provided that no successors or assigns of any Initial Note A Holder shall have any liability for a breach of representation or warranty set forth in this Agreement (including Exhibit C). Each Servicer and Trustee (if any) is an intended third-party beneficiary of this Agreement. Except as provided in Section 8 and the preceding sentence, none of the provisions of this Agreement shall be for the benefit of or enforceable by any Person not a party hereto or a successor or assign of a party hereto.

28.     Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and all of such counterparts shall together constitute one and the same instrument.

29.     Captions. The titles and headings of the paragraphs of this Agreement have been inserted for convenience of reference only and are not intended to summarize or otherwise describe the subject matter of the paragraphs and shall not be given any consideration in the construction of this Agreement.

30.     Notices.

All written notices so given shall be deemed effective upon receipt or, if mailed, upon the earlier to occur of receipt or the expiration of the fourth (4th) day following the date of mailing.

31.     Note Holder’s Access to Information. The Lead Note Holder shall provide to the other Holders and, after the Lead Securitization Date, the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement shall provide that such other Holders shall have access to, upon written request to the Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, subject to any restrictions on the distribution of such information contained in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, (a) a summary of the current status of principal and interest payments on the Mortgage Loan, (b) copies of the Mortgage Loan Borrower’s current financial statements, to the extent in the Servicer’s possession, (c) the most recent appraisals, if any, as to the value of the Mortgaged Properties, to the extent in the Servicer’s possession, (d) a copy of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, (e) copies of any Default or acceleration notices sent to the Mortgage Loan Borrower with respect to the Mortgage Loan and all material correspondence related thereto, (f) material notices delivered to any Servicer by the Mortgage Loan Borrower, (g) copies of each other report provided to the Certificateholders in accordance with the express terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement (but only to the extent such other reports relate to the Mortgage Loan or the Mortgage Loan Borrower), and (h) other information with respect to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or the Mortgage Loan, reasonably requested by such other Holder, to the extent required to be provided by the Servicer

32.     Custody of Mortgage Loan Documents. The originals of all of the Mortgage Loan Documents (other than Note A-2 and Note B) will be held by the Lead Note Holder on behalf of each of the other Holders, or, following the Lead Securitization Date, shall be held by the Servicer, Trustee or custodian on its behalf, or other applicable Person under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement.

33.     Statement of Intent. It is the intention of the parties hereto that, for purposes of federal income taxes, state and local income and franchise taxes and any other taxes imposed upon, measured by or based upon gross or net income, this Agreement shall be treated as a grantor trust. The terms of this Agreement shall be interpreted to further this intention of the parties. The parties hereto agree that, unless otherwise required by appropriate tax authorities, the Lead Note Holder shall file or cause to be filed annual or other necessary returns, reports and other forms consistent with such intended characterization. Each other Holders, by its acceptance of its interest herein, agrees, unless otherwise required by appropriate tax authorities, to file its own tax returns and reports in a manner consistent with such characterization. If the Internal Revenue Service were to characterize this Agreement as a partnership for federal income tax purposes, then each such other Holders authorizes and directs the Lead Note Holder to elect out of partnership accounting pursuant to Treasury Regulation 1.761-2, and agrees to file its own tax returns and reports in a manner consistent therewith.

34.     Powers. Except as expressly provided herein, the grantor trust created pursuant to this Agreement will not engage in any activity that is inconsistent with the classification of this arrangement as a grantor trust for federal income tax purposes. Further, this grantor trust shall not (a) acquire any additional assets or (b) modify (or agree to the modification of) or dispose of its assets other than pursuant to the terms hereof. The grantor trust shall take no action (or fail to take any action) that will cause it to be classified as other than a grantor trust for federal income tax purposes.

35.     Servicing of the Loan. Pursuant to this Agreement or the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, the Master Servicer (whose identity may change from time to time as provided in this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement) will be appointed as the servicer of the Mortgage Loan. Pursuant to the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement, the Special Servicer will be appointed as the special servicer of the Mortgage Loan. The parties agree that the Servicers shall service the Mortgage Loan on behalf of the Holders. Prior to the Lead Securitization Date, the Lead Note Holder shall have the right to appoint and remove the Interim Servicer with or without cause under this Agreement and from and after the Lead Securitization Date, the Lead Note Holder shall have the right to appoint and remove the Master Servicer in accordance with the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. The Lead Note Holder has appointed KeyBank National Association to serve as the initial Interim Servicer. All rights and obligations of the Lead Note Holder described hereunder may be exercised by the Servicer and/or the Special Servicer (except as set forth in the preceding sentence) and, to the extent

 -52-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

applicable, the Certificate Administrator, the Trustee or the paying agent on behalf of the Lead Note Holder and the other Holders agree to cooperate with any such Persons with respect to its exercise of such rights and obligations.

36.     Registration of Transfers. The Lead Note Holder shall maintain a register on which it shall record the names and addresses of, and wire transfer instructions for, the Holders from time to time, to the extent such information is provided in writing to it by any other Holders. Any transfer of a Note hereunder shall be recorded on such register. The transferring Holder (or the transferee) shall reimburse the Lead Note Holder for the Lead Note Holder’s reasonable third party out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements) incurred in connection with the terms of this Section 36.

37.     Non-Recourse Obligations of the Holders. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or the Servicing Agreement (but subject to Section 10 and Section 40 hereof), no Holder shall be personally liable hereunder or under the Servicing Agreement other than to the extent of cash, property or other value realized or derived from its Note either (i) prior to its disbursement and receipt by the Holder or (ii) after its receipt by the Holder under the circumstances and to the extent provided under Section 8(b) hereof.

38.     Termination. This Agreement and the respective obligations and responsibilities under this Agreement of the parties hereto shall terminate upon (a) mutual agreement by the parties hereto, evidenced in writing; (b) thirty (30) days after each of the Notes is paid in full; or (c) payment (or provision for payment) to the Holders of all amounts held by or on behalf of the Servicer and required under the Servicing Agreement, to be so paid on the last Remittance Date following final payment or other liquidation (or any advance with respect thereto) of the Mortgage Loan or the Mortgaged Properties; provided, however, that in no event shall the arrangement created hereby continue beyond the expiration of 21 years from the death of the last survivor of the descendants of Joseph P. Kennedy, the late Ambassador of the United States to the Court of St. James, living on the date hereof.

39.     Withholding Taxes.

(a)     If the Lead Note Holder or the Mortgage Loan Borrower is required by law to deduct and withhold Taxes from interest, fees or other amounts payable to the other Holders with respect to the Mortgage Loan as a result of such Holder constituting a Non-Exempt Person, the Servicer may do so with respect to such Holder’s interest in such payment (all withheld amounts being deemed paid to such Holder), provided that the Servicer shall furnish such Holder with a statement setting forth the amount of Taxes withheld, the applicable rate and other information which may reasonably be requested for purposes of assisting such Holder to seek any allowable credits or deductions for the Taxes so withheld in each jurisdiction in which such Holder is subject to tax.

(b)     Each Holder shall and hereby agrees to indemnify the Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer on its behalf) against and hold the Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer on its behalf) harmless from and against any Taxes, interest, penalties and attorneys’ fees and disbursements arising or resulting from any failure of the Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer on its behalf) to

 -53-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

withhold Taxes from payment made to such Holder in reliance upon any representation, certificate, statement, document or instrument made or provided by such Holder to the Lead Note Holder in connection with the obligation of the Lead Note Holder (or any Servicer on its behalf) to withhold Taxes from payments made to such Holder, it being expressly understood and agreed that (i) the Lead Note Holder may accept and rely on any such representation, certificate, statement, document or instrument as being true and correct in all respects without any obligation or responsibility to investigate or to make any inquiries with respect to the accuracy, veracity, correctness or validity of the same and (ii) such Holder shall, upon request of the Lead Note Holder and at its sole cost and expense, defend any claim or action relating to the foregoing indemnification using counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Lead Note Holder.

(c)     Each Holder represents to the Lead Note Holder (for the benefit of the Mortgage Loan Borrower) that it is not a Non-Exempt Person and that neither the Lead Note Holder nor the Mortgage Loan Borrower is obligated under applicable law to withhold Taxes on sums paid to it with respect to the Mortgage Loan or otherwise pursuant to this Agreement. Contemporaneously with the execution of this Agreement and from time to time as necessary during the term of this Agreement, each Holder shall deliver to the Lead Note Holder evidence satisfactory to the Lead Note Holder substantiating that it is not a Non-Exempt Person and that the Lead Note Holder is not obligated under applicable law to withhold Taxes on sums paid to it with respect to the Mortgage Loan or otherwise under this Agreement. Without limiting the effect of the foregoing, (a) if a Holder is created or organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia, it shall satisfy the requirements of the preceding sentence by furnishing to the Lead Note Holder an Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 and (b) if a Holder is not created or organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia, and if the payment of interest or other amounts by the Mortgage Loan Borrower is treated for United States income tax purposes as derived in whole or part from sources within the United States, such Holder shall satisfy the requirements of the preceding sentence by furnishing to the Lead Note Holder Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI, Form W-8BEN or Form W-8BEN, as applicable, or successor forms, as may be required from time to time, duly executed by such Holder, as evidence of such Holder’s exemption from the withholding of United States tax with respect thereto. The Lead Note Holder shall not be obligated to make any payment hereunder to each other Holder in respect of its Note or otherwise until such Holder shall have furnished to the Lead Note Holder the requested forms, certificates, statements or documents.

40.     Cooperation in Securitization; Re-Sizing of A Note; Provisions Relating to Securitization.

(a)     In connection with the Lead Securitization or any Non-Lead Securitization, Note B Holder hereby consents to the inclusion in any disclosure document relating to the Lead Securitization or such Non-Lead Securitization of the identity of the Note B Holder and the identification of other Persons that control Note B (other than the identification of its limited partners or other non-controlling investors). The Note B Holder covenants and agrees that in the event any A Note is to be included as an asset of the Lead Securitization or any Non-Lead Securitization, the Note B Holder shall, at the related Initial Note A Holder’s sole cost and expense (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and disbursements reasonably incurred by the Note B Holder) and request, (i) meet with representatives of the Rating Agencies to discuss the business and operations of the

 -54-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

Note B Holder, (ii) cooperate with the reasonable requests of each Rating Agency and such Initial Note A Holder in connection with the Lead Securitization or such Non-Lead Securitization, as well as in connection with all other matters and the preparation of any offering documents thereof and (iii) review and respond promptly with respect to any information (except as permitted above) relating to the Note B Holder in the Lead Securitization or such Non-Lead Securitization document.

(b)     Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, for so long as Column or any affiliate of Column (an “Initial Holder”) is the owner of an A Note (each, an “Owned Note”), such Initial Holder shall have the right, subject to the terms of the Mortgage Loan Documents, to cause the Mortgage Loan Borrower to execute amended and restated notes or additional notes (in either case, “New Notes”) reallocating the principal of an Owned Note to such New Notes; or severing an Owned Note into one or more further “component” notes in the aggregate principal amount equal to the then outstanding principal balance of such Owned Note provided that (i) the aggregate principal balance of all outstanding New Notes following such amendments is no greater than the aggregate principal of such Owned Note prior to such amendments, (ii) all Notes continue to have the same weighted average interest rate as the Notes prior to such amendments, (iii) all New Notes pay pro rata and on a pari passu basis and such reallocated or component notes shall be automatically subject to the terms of this Agreement, (iv) the Initial Holder holding the New Notes shall notify the Lead Note Holder, the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Certificate Administrator and the Trustee in writing of such modified allocations and principal amounts, and (v) the execution of such amendments and New Notes does not violate Accepted Servicing Practices. If the Lead Note Holder so requests, the Initial Holder holding the New Notes (and any subsequent holder of such Notes) shall execute a confirmation of the continuing applicability of this Agreement to the New Notes as so modified. In connection with the foregoing (provided the conditions set forth in clauses (i) through (v) above are satisfied, with respect to clauses (i) through (iv), as certified by the applicable Initial Holder, on which certification the Master Servicer can rely), the Master Servicer is hereby authorized and directed to execute amendments to the Mortgage Loan Documents and this Agreement on behalf of any or all of the Note Holders solely for the purpose of reflecting such reallocation of principal.

(c)     The Lead Note Holder acknowledges and agrees that it shall cause the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement to provide that (and, to the extent such provisions are not included in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement they shall be deemed incorporated therein and made a part thereof):

(i)     the Master Servicer, Special Servicer and Trustee for such Lead Securitization shall be required to notify the master servicer, special servicer and trustee under each Non-Lead Servicing Agreement of the amount of any P&I Advance it has made with respect to any of Note A-1, Note A-2 or Note B or Property Advances it has made with respect to the Mortgaged Properties within two Business Days of making any such advance;

(ii)     if the Master Servicer determines that a proposed P&I Advance or Property Advance, if made, or any outstanding P&I Advance or Property Advance previously made, would be, or is, as applicable, a “nonrecoverable advance,” the Master Servicer shall

 -55-

Co-Lender Agreement

(DDR JV Portfolio)

 

provide the servicers under any Non-Lead Servicing Agreement written notice of such determination within two Business Days after such determination was made;

(iii)    the Master Servicer shall remit all payments received during the related Collection Period with respect to Note A-2, net of the Servicing Fee payable with respect to each such Note, and any other applicable fees and reimbursements payable to the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer and the Trustee, to the Holders of such Notes on or prior to the Remittance Date;

(iv)   on a monthly basis, with respect to each other Note that is held by a Non-Lead Securitization, the Master Servicer shall make available CREFC® Reports (except the CREFC® Bond Level File, the CREFC® Collateral Summary File, the CREFC® Special Servicer Loan File, the CREFC® Operating Statement Analysis Report and the CREFC® NOI Adjustment Worksheet) available pursuant to the terms of the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement;

(v)    the Master Servicer and Special Servicer shall provide to the Holder of Note A-2 all documents, certificates, instruments, notices, reports, operating statements, rent rolls and other information regarding the Mortgage Loan provided to the “Controlling Class Representative” (or analogous term) as such term is defined in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement at the time provided to such other party;

(vi)    the servicing duties of each of the Master Servicer and Special Servicer under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement shall include the duty to service the Mortgage Loan and all of the Notes on behalf of the Holders (including the respective trustees and certificateholders) in accordance with the terms and provisions of this Agreement, the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement and Accepted Servicing Practices;

(vii)    the Holder of Note A-2 shall be entitled to the same indemnity with respect to the Mortgage Loan as the Lead Note Holder and Note B is provided with respect to the Mortgage Loan under the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement; the Master Servicer, any primary servicer, the Special Servicer, the trustee, the certificate administrator and operating advisor shall be required to indemnify each “certification party” and the depositors under each Non-Lead Servicing Agreement related to any public Non-Lead Securitization to the same extent that they indemnify the Lead Securitization “certification party” and depositor for their failure to deliver the items in clause (viii) below in a timely manner and for any Deficient Exchange Act Deliverable (as defined in the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement or any similar term thereto) regarding, and delivered by or on behalf of, such party;

(viii)    with respect to any Non-Lead Securitization that is subject to following reporting requirements under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (including Rule 15Ga-1), as amended, and Regulation AB, (a) the Master Servicer, any primary servicer, the Special Servicer and the Trustee, certificate administrator or other party acting as custodian under the Lead Securitization Servicing
