(c) Lender’s Right to Obtain Insurance: Notwithstanding this Section 3.3, upon an Event of Default under this Agreement or a Default under any of the other Loan Documents, Lender or Mortgage Correspondent shall have the right (but not the obligation) to place and maintain insurance required to be placed and maintained by Borrower hereunder, and use funds on deposit in the Escrow Account for the payment of insurance to pay for same.

Failure of Borrower to provide such notice and agreement shall constitute a default under the Loan Documents.
In connection with Lender’s consideration for approval of a proposed Substitute Indemnitor, Borrower shall cause such proposed Substitute Indemnitor to deliver to Lender a current financial statement, certified as correct by Indemnitor, along with such other information concerning such proposed Substitute Indemnitor as Lender may reasonably require.

5. CASUALTY AND CONDEMNATION.
5.1 Lender’s Right to Settle Claims; Election to Apply Insurance and Condemnation Proceeds to Indebtedness. Except as otherwise provided in this Section, in the event of any loss or damage to any portion of the Project due to fire or other casualty, or any taking of any portion of the Project by condemnation or under power of eminent domain, Lender may, in its sole and absolute discretion, either apply the proceeds to the Loan balance or disburse them for the purposes of repair and restoration. Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, Borrower has the right to use insurance or condemnation proceeds to rebuild following a casualty or a condemnation of the Improvements, or to remedy the effect on the Project of any condemnation, provided that (i) Lender shall have the right to settle any claim or award that Borrower has not settled on or before one hundred twenty (120) days after the date of such loss or prior to the date of such taking and (ii) each of the following is satisfied in the determination of Lender: (a) no Default exists, (b) no payment Event of Default has occurred during the preceding twelve months, (c) the proceeds received by Lender, together with any additional funds deposited with Lender by Borrower, are sufficient, in Lender’s sole and absolute discretion, either to restore the Project to its condition before the casualty or to remedy the condemnation, (d) local building and zoning laws allow the Project to be rebuilt to that which existed prior to the casualty or condemnation, (e) a loss of no more than 5% of the commercial tenant rental income results through commercial tenants exercising rights to terminate their leases as a result of casualty or condemnation, and (f) the Loan-to-Value ratio of the Project on completion will be 55% or less, as determined by an Appraisal (provided, however, in the event the casualty or condemnation proceeds received are less than 3% of the original Loan amount, Borrower will not have to satisfy this subpart (f) to rebuild). The Appraisal required pursuant to the foregoing provision shall be at Borrower’s expense and Borrower is required to provide proof of such payment to Lender and Lender’s Mortgage Correspondent.
Provided that no Event of Default exists, Borrower may settle all claims up to the lesser of (1) $50,000 or (2) 1% of the original Loan Amount directly with the insurance company without the prior consent of Lender provided that (i) Borrower uses the proceeds of any claim to rebuild or restore the Project to its condition prior to the casualty, (ii) Borrower provides Lender with written notice of the casualty, and (iii) local building and zoning laws allow the Project to be rebuilt to the condition prior to the casualty. Failure to rebuild and restore will constitute an Event of Default under the Loan Documents. Failure to use the insurance proceeds received directly from the insurance company to rebuild and restore is a Recourse Event as defined in Section 9.18 of this Agreement.
Loan Agreement

 

21


 

In all other cases, Lender shall have the right (but not the obligation) to collect, retain and apply to the indebtedness of Borrower under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents all insurance and condemnation proceeds (after deduction of all expense of collection and settlement, including attorney and adjusters’ fees and expenses), and if such proceeds are insufficient to pay such amount in full, to declare the balance remaining unpaid on the Note and Security Instrument to be due and payable forthwith and to avail itself of any of the remedies afforded thereby as in the case of any Event of Default. Any proceeds remaining after application to the indebtedness of Borrower under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be paid by Lender to Borrower or the party then entitled thereto.
5.2 Borrower’s Obligation to Rebuild and Use of Proceeds Therefor. If Lender does not elect to or is not entitled to apply fire or casualty insurance proceeds to the indebtedness, all insurance proceeds received will be deposited into a third party escrow account controlled by Lender or its Mortgage Correspondent. Lender may also require that Borrower deposit any deficit between the business interruption or loss of rents proceeds received and the debt service due under the Loan Documents during the period of rebuilding or restoration of the Improvements. As provided under Section 5.1 of this Agreement, Lender shall have the right (but not the obligation) to settle, collect and retain such proceeds, and after deduction of all expenses of collection and settlement, including attorney and adjusters’ fees and expenses, to release the same to Borrower periodically provided that Borrower shall:
(a) Expeditiously repair and restore all damage to the portion of the Project in question resulting from such fire or other casualty, including completion of the construction if such fire or other casualty shall have occurred prior to completion, so that the Project will be completed in accordance with the plans and specifications therefor; and
(b) If the proceeds of fire or casualty insurance (and the undisbursed available Loan proceeds for construction) are, in Lender’s sole judgment, insufficient to complete the repair and restoration of the buildings, structures and other improvements constituting the Project, then Borrower shall promptly deposit with Lender the amount of such deficiency.
Any request by Borrower for a disbursement by Lender of fire or casualty insurance proceeds and funds deposited by Borrower pursuant to this Section 5.2 and the disbursement thereof shall be conditioned upon Borrower’s compliance with and satisfaction of the same conditions precedent as would be applicable in connection with construction loans made by institutional lenders for projects similar to the Project, including approval of plans and specifications, submittal of evidence of completion, updated title insurance, lien waivers, and other customary safeguards.

6. ASSIGNMENTS.
6.1 Lender’s Right to Assign. Lender shall have the right to assign, transfer, sell, negotiate, pledge or otherwise hypothecate this Agreement and any of its rights and security hereunder, including the Note, Security Instrument, and any other Loan Documents. Lender shall have the right to hire outside firms it deems necessary to assist with the servicing, administration and monitoring of the Loan. Borrower hereby agrees that all of the rights and remedies of Lender in connection with the interest so assigned shall be enforceable against Borrower by such assignee with the same force and effect and to the same extent as the same would have been enforceable by Lender but for such assignment. Borrower agrees that Lender shall have the right to sell participations in the Loan or to include the Note in a securitized pool of indebtedness without the consent of Borrower.
6.2 Prohibition of Assignments by Borrower. Borrower shall not assign or attempt to assign its rights under this Agreement. Borrower will not suffer or permit any of its interest or rights in the Project to be assigned, transferred, sold, pledged, vested, encumbered, hypothecated or otherwise disposed of (the foregoing are hereinafter referred to individually as a “Transfer,” collectively as “Transfers”) until the provisions of this Agreement have been fully complied with and the Loan and all other sums evidenced by the Note and/or secured by the Security Instrument and other Loan Documents, have been repaid in full. Borrower shall promptly notify Lender of the death or incapacity of any Indemnitor or any other individual(s) having direct or indirect management or control over the Property and/or Borrower. Failure of Borrower to provide such notice shall constitute a default under the Loan Documents.
6.3 Transfers of Interests in Borrower. For estate-planning purposes only, Borrower, or any partner, member or shareholder of Borrower shall be permitted to make a Transfer of any direct or indirect interest in Borrower (other than a general partnership interest in Borrower if Borrower is a partnership, or a Managing Member or Manager interest in Borrower, if Borrower is a limited liability company) to or for the benefit of a spouse or lineal descendant (including by adoption), up to an aggregate of 49% of the total interests of Borrower, without the prior consent of Lender, provided that any such Transfer does not change the direct or indirect control or management of Borrower. Copies of any and all documents evidencing any such Transfer must be provided to Lender within fifteen (15) days after the occurrence of said Transfer including, without limitation, a statement detailing the Transfer and a listing of reallocations and percentages of ownership interest in Borrower. Other than for estate-planning purposes as outlined above, no direct or indirect managing or controlling interest, nor any other interest representing (directly or indirectly) a more than ten percent (10%) interest in the Borrower or the Project, may be Transferred (including without limitation any Transfer resulting from death of any natural person holding any direct or indirect interest in Borrower or the Project) without the prior written consent of Lender (which Lender may withhold at its sole discretion); and the occurrence of such an event will constitute an Event of Default under the Loan Documents. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing any Transfers that would result in there being any co-borrowers, other than or in addition to Borrower, shall be strictly prohibited.

(f) If any assignment, pledge, encumbrance, transfer, hypothecation, failure of notice or other disposition is made in violation of Section 6.2 or Section 6.3 of this Agreement;
(g) If Borrower, any general partner of Borrower or Indemnitor shall fail to pay any debt owed by it or is in default under any agreement with Lender or any other party (other than a failure or default for which the maximum liability of Borrower or such general partner or Indemnitor does not exceed 25% of their respective assets) and such failure or default continues after any applicable grace period specified in the instrument or agreement relating thereto;
(h) If a default (other than those set forth in this Section 7.1) occurs under any of the Loan Documents and continues beyond the applicable grace period, if any, contained therein; or

Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, including without limitation the filing, by Borrower, of a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, Lender shall have the right (but not the obligation) to pursue any one or more of the following remedies concurrently or successively, it being the intent hereof that all such remedies shall be cumulative and that no such remedy shall be to the exclusion of any other:
(a) Declare the Note to be immediately due and payable;
(b) Use and apply any monies deposited by Borrower with Lender, including amounts in the Escrow Account, regardless of the purpose for which the same was deposited, to cure any such default or to apply on account of any indebtedness under this Agreement which is due and owing to Lender;
(c) Exercise or pursue any other right or remedy permitted under this Agreement or any of the Loan Documents or conferred upon or available to Lender at law or in equity or otherwise; and
(d) To correct any such Event of Default in such manner and to such extent as Lender may deem necessary to protect the security hereof, including, without limitation, the right (but not the obligation) to appear in and defend any action or proceeding purporting to affect the security hereof or the rights or powers of Lender, and also the right (but not the obligation) to perform and discharge each and every obligation, covenant, condition and agreement of Borrower under the Service Agreements and the Permits. Lender shall not be obligated to perform or discharge, nor does it hereby undertake to perform or discharge, any obligation, duty or liability under any of the Service Agreements nor any of the Permits, or by reason of this Agreement, unless or until Lender exercises its rights hereunder. Lender may, at its option, upon written notice to the appropriate Consenting Party in the case of a Service Agreement, exercise any or all of the rights and remedies granted to Borrower under any Service Agreement or Permit, including any right or remedy with respect to the Consenting Party in question in the case of a Service Agreement, as if Lender had been an original party to such Service Agreement or the permittee under the Permit. After an Event of Default, upon giving such notice to any Consenting Party with respect to a Service Agreement, Lender may elect to assume all obligations of Borrower under any Service Agreement between Borrower and the Consenting Party or with respect to any Permit; but in any case Lender shall not be responsible for any default of Borrower under the Service Agreement occurring prior to the time Lender gives such notice to the Consenting Party or assumes the obligations under any Permit. Each Consenting Party is hereby authorized by Borrower to perform its obligations under the Service Agreements to which it is a party for the benefit of Lender without any obligation to determine whether or not an Event of Default has in fact occurred.
8.2 Non-Waiver of Remedies. No waiver of any breach or default hereunder shall constitute or be construed as a waiver by Lender of any subsequent breach or default or of any breach or default of any other provision of this Agreement.
8.3 Cash Collateral Account. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Lender may require Borrower to deposit all revenues from the operation of the Project into an account held by and pledged to Lender (“Cash Collateral Account”) after Borrower has failed to promptly cure as provided for in the Loan Documents. Lender shall not pay interest on any amounts held on deposit in the Cash Collateral Account, unless required to do so under applicable Laws. Borrower shall execute such documents as Lender, in its sole discretion, deems necessary to perfect its interest in the Cash Collateral Account.

9.1 Captions. The captions and headings of various Articles and Sections of this Agreement and Exhibits pertaining hereto are for convenience only and are not to be considered as defining or limiting in any way, the scope or intent of the provisions hereof.
9.2 Merger. This Agreement, the Application/Commitment and the Loan Documents and instruments delivered in connection herewith, as may be amended from time to time in writing, constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the Project and the Loan, and all prior discussions, negotiations and document drafts are merged herein and therein. If there are any inconsistencies between the Application/Commitment and this Agreement or the Loan Documents, the terms contained in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall prevail. Neither Lender nor any employee of Lender has made or is authorized to make any representation or agreement upon which Borrower may rely unless such matter is made for the benefit of Borrower and is in writing signed by an authorized officer of Lender. Borrower agrees that it has not and will not rely on any custom or practice of Lender, or on any course of dealing with Lender, in connection with the Loan unless such matters are set forth in this Agreement or the Loan Documents or in an instrument made for the benefit of Borrower and in a writing signed by an authorized officer of Lender.
9.3 Notices. Any notice, demand, request or other communication which any party hereto may be required or may desire to give hereunder shall be in writing, in capitalized, bold letters using a font size of at least 12 pts., addressed as follows and shall be deemed to have been properly given if hand delivered, if sent by reputable overnight courier (effective the business day following delivery to such courier) or if mailed (effective two business days after mailing) by United States registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested to such addresses (for the applicable person or party) as set forth on Exhibit B hereto; or at such other address as the party to be served with notice may have furnished in writing to the party seeking or desiring to serve notice as a place for the service of notice. Notices given in any other fashion shall be deemed effective only upon receipt. The communication shall clearly state, in the same format as above, the number of days, business or otherwise, in which Lender has to review the communication before consent is deemed given, when applicable.
9.4 Modification; Waiver. No modification, waiver, amendment, discharge or change of this Agreement shall be valid unless the same is in writing and signed by the party against which the enforcement of such modification, waiver, amendment, discharge or change is sought.

9.6 Acquiescence Not to Constitute Waiver of Lender’s Requirements. Lender may at any time by a specific writing waive compliance by Borrower with any covenant in any Loan Document, consent to Borrower’s doing any act which in any Loan Document Borrower is prohibited from doing, or to Borrower’s failing to do any act which in any Loan Document Borrower is required to do, release any part of the Project or any interest therein from the lien and security interest of the Security Instrument, or release any person liable for any part of the Loan without impairing or releasing the liability of any other person. Lender may waive any Default without waiving any other prior or subsequent Default. Lender may remedy any Default without waiving the Default remedied. Neither failure by Lender to exercise, nor delay by Lender in exercising, nor discontinuance of the exercise of any right, power or remedy upon any Default shall be construed as a waiver of such Default or as a waiver of the right to exercise any such right, power or remedy (including the right to accelerate the maturity of the Loan or any part thereof) at a later date. No single or partial exercise by Lender of any right, power or remedy under any Loan Document shall exhaust the same or shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof, and every such right, power or remedy under any Loan Document may be exercised at any time and from time to time. No modification or waiver of any provision of any Loan Document nor consent to any departure by Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless in writing signed by Lender and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance, for the purpose for which given and to the extent therein specified. No notice to nor demand on Borrower in any case shall of itself entitle Borrower to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances.
9.7 Disclaimer by Lender.
(a) This Agreement is made for the sole benefit of Borrower and Lender (and Lender’s successors and assigns and participants, if any), and no other person or persons shall have any benefits, rights or remedies under or by reason of this Agreement, or by reason of any actions taken by Lender pursuant to this Agreement. Lender shall not be liable for any debts or claims accruing in favor of any third parties against Borrower or others or against the Project. Borrower is not and shall not be an agent of Lender for any purposes. Except as expressly set forth in the Loan Documents, Lender is not and shall not be an agent of Borrower for any purposes. Lender, by making the Loan or taking any action pursuant to any of the Loan Documents, shall not be deemed a partner or a joint venturer with Borrower or fiduciary of Borrower.
(b) Any review, investigation or inspection conducted by Lender, any architectural or engineering consultants retained by Lender or any agent or representative of Lender in order to verify independently Borrower’s satisfaction of any conditions precedent to the disbursement of the Loan, Borrower’s performance of any of the covenants, agreements and obligations of Borrower under this Agreement, or the truth of any representations and warranties made by Borrower hereunder (regardless of whether or not the party conducting such review, investigation or inspection should have discovered that any of such conditions precedent were not satisfied or that any such covenants, agreements or obligations were not performed or that any such representations or warranties were not true), shall not affect (or constitute a waiver by Lender of) (i) any of Borrower’s representations and warranties under this Agreement or Lender’s reliance thereon, or (ii) Lender’s reliance upon any certifications required under this Agreement or any other facts, information or reports furnished Lender by Borrower hereunder.
Loan Agreement

 

27


 

(c) By accepting or approving anything required to be observed, performed, fulfilled or given to Lender pursuant to the Loan Documents, including any certificate, statement of profit and loss or other financial statement, survey, appraisal, lease or insurance policy, Lender shall not be deemed to have warranted or represented the sufficiency, legality, effectiveness or legal effect of the same, or of any term provision or condition thereof, and such acceptance or approval thereof shall not constitute a warranty or representation to anyone with respect thereto by Lender.
9.8 Right of Lender to Make Advances to Cure Borrower’s Defaults. If Borrower shall fail to perform in a timely fashion any of Borrower’s covenants, agreements or obligations contained in this Agreement or the Loan Documents, Lender may (but shall not be required to) perform any of such covenants, agreements and obligations. Any funds advanced by Lender in the exercise of its judgment that the same are needed to protect its security for the Loan are deemed to be obligatory advances hereunder and any amounts expended (whether by disbursement of undisbursed Loan proceeds or otherwise) by Lender in so doing, shall constitute additional indebtedness evidenced and secured by the Note, the Security Instrument and the other Loan Documents, shall bear interest from the date expended at the Default Rate and be payable together with such interest upon demand.
9.9 Definitions Include Amendments. Definitions contained in this Agreement which identify documents, including the Loan Documents, shall be deemed to include all amendments and supplements to such documents from the date hereof, and all future amendments and supplements thereto entered into from time to time to satisfy the requirements of this Agreement or otherwise with the consent of the Lender. Reference to this Agreement contained in any of the foregoing documents shall be deemed to include all amendments and supplements to this Agreement.
9.10 Time Is of the Essence. Time is hereby declared to be of the essence of this Agreement and of every part hereof.
9.11 Execution in Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.
9.12 Waiver of Consequential Damages. In no event shall Lender be liable to Borrower for consequential damages, whatever the nature of a breach by Lender of its obligations under this Agreement, or any of the Loan Documents, and Borrower for itself and all Affiliated Parties hereby waives all claims for consequential damages.
9.13 Claims Against Lender. Lender shall not be in default under this Agreement, or under any other Loan Documents, unless a written notice specifically setting forth the claim of Borrower shall have been given to Lender within thirty (30) days after Borrower first had knowledge of, or reasonably should have had knowledge of, the occurrence of the event which Borrower alleges gave rise to such claim and Lender does not remedy or cure the default, if any there be, promptly thereafter. If it is determined in any proceedings that Lender has improperly failed to grant its consent or approval, where such consent or approval is required by this Agreement or any other Loan Documents, Borrower’s sole remedy shall be to obtain declaratory relief determining such withholding to have been improper, and for itself and all Affiliated Parties, Borrower hereby waives all claims for damages or set-off against Lender resulting from any withholding of consent or approval by Lender.
Loan Agreement

9.14 Jurisdiction and Venue. With respect to any suit, action or proceedings relating to this Agreement, the Project, or any of the other Loan Documents (“Proceedings”) each party irrevocably (i) submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the State where the Project is located, and (ii) waives any objection which it may have at any time to the laying of venue of any proceedings brought in any such court, waives any claim that such Proceedings have been brought in an inconvenient forum and further waives the right to object, with respect to such Proceedings, that such court does not have jurisdiction over such party. Nothing in this Agreement shall preclude either party from bringing Proceedings in any other jurisdiction nor will the bringing of Proceedings in any one or more jurisdictions preclude the bringing of Proceedings in any other jurisdiction.
9.15 Severability. The parties hereto intend and believe that each provision in this Agreement comports with all applicable local, state and federal Laws. However, if any provision or provisions, or if any portion of any provision or provisions, in this Agreement is found by a court of law to be in violation of any applicable Laws, and if such court declares such portion, provision, or provisions of this Agreement to be illegal, invalid, unlawful, void or unenforceable as written, then it is the intent of all parties hereto that such portion, provision, or provisions shall be given force to the fullest possible extent that they are legal, valid and enforceable, and that the remainder of this Agreement shall be construed as if such illegal, invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable portion, provision, or provisions were not contained herein, and that the rights, obligations, and interests of Borrower and Lender under the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
9.16 Incorporation of Recitals. The Recitals set forth herein and the Exhibits attached hereto are incorporated herein and expressly made a part hereof.
9.17 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. BORROWER AND LENDER EACH HEREBY WAIVE (TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW) ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, RELATING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY TO THE LOAN, THE APPLICATION FOR THE LOAN, THIS AGREEMENT, THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS OR ANY ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF NOTEHOLDER, ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS OR AGENTS IN CONNECTION THEREWITH; AND AGREE THAT ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING SHALL BE TRIED BEFORE A COURT AND NOT BEFORE A JURY.
Loan Agreement

9.18 Limitation of Liability. Subject to the provisions of this Section 9.18, the Lender agrees that it shall not seek to enforce any monetary judgment with respect to the indebtedness evidenced by the Note against Borrower except through recourse to the Project. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Borrower and, if Borrower is a partnership, its general partner, shall be liable for and SHALL INDEMNIFY AND DEFEND THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES AGAINST, AND HOLD THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES HARMLESS FROM AND REIMBURSE THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES FOR, ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, JUDGMENTS, PENALTIES, LIABILITIES, COSTS, DAMAGES AND EXPENSES, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY INCURRED BY THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES, INCLUDING COURT COSTS AND ATTORNEY FEES (PRIOR TO TRIAL, AT TRIAL AND ON APPEAL), DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY CAUSED BY, RESULTING FROM OR ARISING OUT OF ANY OF THE FOLLOWING ACTS OR OMISSIONS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “RECOURSE EVENTS”) committed, permitted or omitted by any of the Indemnitor, Borrower or any of their respective agents, employees and/or contractors: (i) waste to or of the Project or a failure to maintain the condition of the Project in the manner required by the Loan Documents; (ii) fraud or material misrepresentation by Borrower or Indemnitor; (iii) failure to pay (unless separately escrowed for under the Loan Documents) insurance premiums, taxes, assessments, ground rent or any other lienable impositions as required under the Loan Documents, failure to furnish sums toward restoration of the Project (in an amount equal to the deductible referenced in Exhibit E attached hereto and by this reference incorporated herein), or failure to apply insurance proceeds that are not deposited with Lender to the restoration of the Project; (iv) misapplication of tenant escrows, security deposits, insurance proceeds or condemnation proceeds; (v) failure while in monetary default to pay to Lender all rents, income and profits of and from the Project, net of reasonable and customary operating expenses; (vi) breach of, or failure to perform the environmental warranties, representations, covenants or indemnifications described in the Environmental Indemnity Agreement; (vii) destruction or removal of fixtures or personal property securing the Loan from the Project, unless replaced by items of equal value; (viii) terminating, settling, amending or entering into a lease of the Project in violation of the Loan Documents; (ix) failure of the Project to comply with any Building Laws after any Governmental Authority has notified Borrower, its agents, employees and/or contractors of such non-compliance; (x) breaches of representations or covenants contained in the Loan Documents relating to compliance with the Executive Order or the Patriot Act; (xi) failure to pay to Lender any rent, income or profits of and from the Project which have been prepaid more than thirty (30) days in advance; (xii) willful or grossly negligent violation of applicable Laws; and (xiii) failure to pay all amounts payable under the Note in full, together with reasonable attorney fees, if Borrower transfers or encumbers the Project in contravention of the Loan Documents, or if Borrower files a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code prior to the two-year anniversary of the transfer of title to the Project to Lender by a Foreclosure Conveyance.
Nothing contained herein shall be construed to prevent Lender from exercising any remedy allowed by Law or by the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document which does not result in an obligation by Borrower or, if Borrower is a general partnership, any of its general partners, to pay money with respect to the Note.
9.19 Payment of Interest. With respect to any disbursement of the Loan by Lender, the obligation of Borrower to pay interest to Lender under the Note shall begin at the time that Lender initiates its wire transfer of Loan proceeds.

(f) The sale, conveyance, transfer or other vesting of any direct or indirect interest in Borrower with or without Lender’s consent.
This waiver of reserves is personal to Borrower (and to any transferee or successor for which there is no prohibition nor Lender consent requirement as set forth in Section 6.2 of this Agreement) and is not assignable nor transferable.
(2) Leasing Guidelines. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING CONTAINED HEREIN, COPIES OF ALL LEASES, NEW LEASES, LEASE AMENDMENTS OR MODIFICATIONS, LEASE EXTENSIONS, LEASE ASSIGNMENTS AND RENEWALS MUST BE FORWARDED TO LENDER IMMEDIATELY UPON EXECUTION THROUGHOUT THE TERM OF THE LOAN.

(b) The term (including the base term and all optional or mandatory extension terms that do not adjust rent under the applicable lease to a market rate at the time of the applicable extension) of the lease subject to the proposed Leasing Action is (and would be after consummation of the proposed Leasing Action) ten years or less;

Loan Agreement — Exhibit B

 

3


 

(d) The lease shall contain a base year expense stop;
(e) The lease to which the proposed Leasing Action relates, together with all documentation related to the proposed Leasing Action, is in the same form as a standard form of lease for the Borrower approved by Lender in writing as such “standard form of lease” without any material deviations or alterations therefrom (to facilitate Lender’s review of Leasing Actions, Borrower shall submit a black-lined lease showing any alteration or deletion to the proposed lease from the “standard form of lease”);
(f) The lease to which the applicable Leasing Action relates, together with all documentation related to the proposed Leasing Action, does not contain any obligation of any Borrower with respect to property other than the Project subject to the applicable Leasing Action, including, without limitation, any rental space takeover, any take back provisions, any option to lease additional space which would cause the occupied square footage to exceed the limits of item (a) above, nor any rights or options of the applicable tenant to purchase all or any portion of the Project subject to the applicable Leasing Action or any interest therein. No lease shall (i) contain any representations, warranties or indemnifications by the landlord with respect to hazardous substances or asbestos, (ii) permit prepayment of rent more than one month in advance;
(g) The proposed Leasing Action is the result of an arm’s length negotiation and transaction with a tenant that is not affiliated with any Borrower; and
(h) No Default or Event of Default under the Loan Documents is continuing on the date any Borrower takes the applicable Leasing Action.
Borrower will provide copies of all documentation for any Leasing Action not requiring Lender approval within ten (10) business days of the occurrence of such Leasing Action. Lender will require executed Estoppel Certificates and Subordination, Non-Disturbance and Attornment Agreements on Lender’s standard form when Leasing Actions occur. For a Leasing Action which does not meet the above criteria, Lender approval of the Leasing Action is required. Lender will be deemed to have consented to any Leasing Action if it does not notify Borrower that it is withholding its consent within ten (10) business days of its receipt of (a) notification of the proposed Leasing action and (b) all materials reasonably requested to permit Lender to review the proposed leasing action.
(3) Repairs. With respect to the disbursement of the proceeds of the Loan (the “Disbursement”), Borrower has advised Lender that, prior to the Disbursement, Borrower will be unable to complete the repair and/or satisfy the property condition objection matters set forth on Exhibit F attached hereto and incorporate herein by reference (such matters singularly and collectively referred to as the “Immediate Repair Items”). Lender has agreed to enter into the Loan and to make the Disbursement notwithstanding the existence of the Immediate Repair Items, based solely upon Borrower’s representation, warranty, covenant and agreement that the Immediate Repair Items shall be repaired, remediated or otherwise satisfied on or before ninety (90) days following the date of this Agreement. Accordingly, Borrower represents, warrants, covenants and agrees with Lender that the Immediate Repair Items shall be repaired, remediated or otherwise satisfied on or before ninety (90) days following the date of this Agreement and the failure to perform the same shall, in Lender’s sole discretion, constitute an Event of Default.
