In addition to all of its other rights under this Deed of Trust and otherwise, Beneficiary shall have all of the rights of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code of the State, as in effect from time to time, or under the Uniform Commercial Code in force from time to time in any other state to the extent the same is applicable Law. This Deed of Trust shall be effective as a financing statement filed as a fixture filing with respect to all fixtures included within the Property and is to be filed for record in the real estate records of each county where any part of the Property (including such fixtures) is situated. This Deed of Trust shall also be effective as a financing statement with respect to any other Property as to which a security interest may be perfected by the filing of a financing statement and may be filed as such in any appropriate filing or recording office. The respective mailing addresses of Grantor and Beneficiary are set forth in the opening paragraph of this Deed of Trust. A carbon, photographic or other reproduction of this Deed of Trust or any other financing statement relating to this Deed of Trust shall be sufficient as a financing statement for any of the purposes referred to in this Section. Grantor hereby irrevocably authorizes Beneficiary at any time and from time to time to file any initial financing statements, amendments thereto and continuation statements as authorized by applicable Law, reasonably required by Beneficiary to establish or maintain the validity, perfection and priority of the security interests granted in this Deed of Trust. The foregoing authorization includes Grantor’s irrevocable authorization for Beneficiary at any time and from time to time to file any initial financing statements and amendments thereto that indicate the Personalty (a) as “all assets” of Grantor or words of similar effect, regardless of whether any particular asset comprised in the Personalty falls within the scope of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State or the jurisdiction where the initial financing statement or amendment is filed, or (b) as being of an equal or lesser scope or with greater detail.
Section 2.4    Reconveyance of Deed of Trust and Termination of Assignments and Financing Statements.
If and when Borrower has paid and performed all of the Obligations, and no further advances are to be made under the Loan Agreement, Trustee, upon request by Beneficiary, will promptly provide a reconveyance of the Property from the lien of this Deed of Trust and termination statements for filed financing statements, if any, to Grantor. Grantor shall be responsible for the recordation of such reconveyance and the payment of any recording and filing costs.

To the extent permitted by Law, Beneficiary shall be subrogated, notwithstanding its release of record, to any Lien now or hereafter existing on the Property to the extent that such Lien is paid or discharged by Beneficiary whether or not from the proceeds of the Loan.

Notwithstanding anything stated to the contrary herein, any transfers (or the pledge or encumbrance) of equity interests or other interests in KBS SOR Properties, LLC, or in any of the direct or indirect owners of KBS SOR Properties, LLC (including, without limitation, KBS Strategic Opportunity Limited Partnership, KBS Strategic Opportunity Holdings, LLC, or KBS Strategic Opportunity REIT, Inc.) shall not be prohibited (and shall be expressly permitted) provided that KBS Strategic Opportunity REIT, Inc., continues to own, either directly or indirectly, not less than a fifty-one percent (51%) of the ownership interests in Grantor.

Section 5.3    Removal, Demolition or Alteration of Accessories and Improvements.
Except to the extent permitted by the following sentence, no Improvements or Accessories shall be removed, demolished or materially altered without the prior written consent of Beneficiary, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Grantor may remove and dispose of, free from the Lien of this Deed of Trust, such Accessories as from time to time become worn out or obsolete, provided that, either (a) at the time of, or prior to, such removal, any such Accessories are replaced with other Accessories which are free from Liens other than Permitted Encumbrances and have a value at least equal to that of the replaced Accessories (and by such removal and replacement Grantor shall be deemed to have subjected such Accessories to the Lien of this Deed of Trust), or (b) so long as a prepayment may be made without the imposition of any premium pursuant to the Note, such Accessories are sold at fair market value for cash and the net cash proceeds received from such disposition are paid over promptly to Beneficiary to be applied to the prepayment of the principal of the Loan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall limit Grantor’s right to undertake any tenant improvements for tenants under their Leases (approved or deemed approved by Beneficiary or otherwise existing as of the date of this Deed of Trust), tenant improvements ongoing as of the date hereof, or any capital improvements to the Property.
Section 5.4    Additional Improvements.
Grantor will not construct any Improvements other than those presently on the Land and those described in the Loan Agreement without the prior written consent of Beneficiary, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Grantor will complete and pay for, prior to delinquency, any Improvements which Grantor is permitted to construct on the Land. Grantor will construct and erect any permitted Improvements (a) strictly in accordance with all applicable Laws and any private restrictive covenants, (b) entirely on lots or parcels of the Land, (c) so as not to encroach upon any easement or right-of-way or upon the land of others, and (d) wholly within any building restriction and setback lines applicable to the Land. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall limit Grantor’s right to undertake any tenant improvements for tenants under their Leases (approved or deemed approved by Beneficiary), or any capital improvements to the Property.

-13-


Section 5.5    Restrictive Covenants, Zoning, etc.
Without the prior written consent of Beneficiary, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, Grantor will not initiate, join in, or consent to any change in, any restrictive covenant, easement, zoning ordinance, or other public or private restrictions limiting or defining the uses which may be made of the Property. Except as expressly permitted in this Deed of Trust, Grantor (a) will promptly perform and observe, and use commercially reasonable efforts to cause to be performed and observed, all of the terms and conditions of all agreements affecting the Property, and (b) will do or cause to be done all things reasonably necessary to preserve intact and unimpaired any and all easements, appurtenances and other interests and rights in favor of, or constituting any portion of, the Property.

Section 7.1    Acceleration.
Beneficiary may accelerate all Obligations under the Loan Documents whereupon such Obligations shall become immediately due and payable, without notice of default, notice of acceleration or intention to accelerate, presentment or demand for payment, protest, notice of protest, notice of nonpayment or dishonor, or notices or demands of any kind or character (all of which are hereby waived by Grantor).
Section 7.2    Appraisal; Inspection.
Following the occurrence, and during the continuance, of an Event of Default, Beneficiary may pay such sums as may be necessary to obtain a current appraisal of the Real Property and/or other Property, to inspect and test the Real Property and/or other Property, to pay any tax, assessment, insurance premium, lien, encumbrance or other charge against the Property, to obtain a title report and/or Trustee’s sale guaranty, all such expenditures to be paid by Grantor on demand and added to the Obligations.
Section 7.3    Foreclosure; Power of Sale.
Trustee, if and as directed by Beneficiary, shall have all of the rights and may exercise all of the powers set forth in applicable Law of the State, including those powers set forth in Sections 2924 et seq. and Section 2938 of the California Civil Code or any successor provision of Law. Trustee may sell the Property in its entirety or in parcels, and by one or by several sales, as deemed appropriate by Trustee in its sole and absolute discretion. If Trustee chooses to have more than one foreclosure sale, Trustee may cause the foreclosure sales to be held simultaneously or successively, on the same day, or on such different days and at such different times as Trustee may elect. Trustee shall receive and apply the proceeds from the sale of the Property, or any portion thereof, in accordance with Section 2924k of the California Civil Code or any successor provision of Law. Before any foreclosure sale, Beneficiary or Trustee shall give such notice of default and election to sell as may be required by Law. After the lapse of

-15-


such time as may then be required by Law following the recordation of such notice of default, and notice of sale having been given as then required by Law, Trustee shall sell the property being sold at a public auction to be held at the time and place specified in the notice of sale. Neither Trustee nor Beneficiary shall have any obligation to make demand on Grantor before any foreclosure sale. From time to time in accordance with then-applicable Law, Trustee may, and in any event at Beneficiary’s request shall, postpone any foreclosure sale by public announcement at the time and place noticed for that sale. At any foreclosure sale, Trustee shall sell to the highest bidder at public auction for cash in lawful money of the United States (or cash equivalents acceptable to Trustee to the extent permitted by applicable Law), payable at the time of sale. Trustee shall execute and deliver to the purchaser(s) a deed or deeds conveying the property being sold without any covenant or warranty whatsoever, expressed or implied. The recitals in any such deed of any matters of fact, including any facts bearing upon the regularity or validity of any foreclosure sale, shall be conclusive proof of their truthfulness. Any such deed shall be conclusive against all Persons as to the facts recited therein. Any Person, including Trustee or Beneficiary, may purchase at such sale, and any bid by Beneficiary may be, in whole or in part, in the form of cancellation of all or any part of the Obligations.
Section 7.4    Judicial Action.
Beneficiary and Trustee, if and as directed by Beneficiary, shall have the right to bring an action in any court of competent jurisdiction for foreclosure of this Deed of Trust and a deficiency judgment as provided by Law, or for specific enforcement of any of the covenants or agreements of this Deed of Trust.
Section 7.5    Collection of Rents.
Upon the occurrence, and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the license granted to Grantor to collect the Rents shall be automatically and immediately revoked, without further notice to or demand upon Grantor. Beneficiary may, but shall not be obligated to, exercise any or all of the rights and remedies provided in Section 2938 of the California Civil Code and perform any or all obligations of the landlord under any or all of the Leases, and Beneficiary may, but shall not be obligated to, exercise and enforce any or all of Grantor’s rights under the Leases. Without limitation to the generality of the foregoing, Beneficiary may notify the tenants under the Leases that all Rents are to be paid to Beneficiary, and following such notice all Rents shall be paid directly to Beneficiary and not to Grantor or any other Person other than as directed by Beneficiary, it being understood that a demand by Beneficiary on any tenant under the Leases for the payment of Rent shall be sufficient to warrant payment by such tenant of Rent to Beneficiary without the necessity of further consent by Grantor. Grantor hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs the tenants under the Leases to pay all Rents to Beneficiary instead of to Grantor, upon receipt of written notice from Beneficiary, without the necessity of any inquiry of Grantor and without the necessity of determining the existence or non-existence of an Event of Default. Grantor hereby appoints Beneficiary as Grantor’s attorney-in-fact with full power of substitution, which appointment shall take effect upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and is coupled with an interest and is irrevocable prior to the full and final payment and performance of the Obligations, in Grantor’s name or in Beneficiary’s name: (a) to endorse all checks and other instruments received in payment of Rents and to deposit the same in any account selected by Beneficiary; (b) to give receipts and releases in relation thereto; (c) to institute, prosecute and/or settle actions for the recovery of Rents; (d) to modify the terms of any

-16-


Leases including terms relating to the Rents payable thereunder; (e) to cancel any Leases; (f) to enter into new Leases; and (g) to do all other acts and things with respect to the Leases and Rents which Beneficiary may deem necessary or desirable to protect the security for the Obligations. Any Rents received shall be applied first to pay all Expenses and next in reduction of the other Obligations. Grantor shall pay, on demand, to Beneficiary, the amount of any deficiency between (i) the Rents received by Beneficiary, and (ii) all Expenses incurred together with interest thereon as provided in the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
Section 7.6    Taking Possession or Control of the Property.
Upon the occurrence, and during the continuance, of an Event of Default, as a matter of right without bond and without regard to the adequacy of the security, and to the extent permitted by Law without notice to Grantor, Beneficiary shall be entitled, upon application to a court of competent jurisdiction, to the immediate appointment of a receiver for all or any part of the Property and the Rents, whether such receivership may be incidental to a proposed sale of the Property or otherwise, and Grantor hereby consents to the appointment of such a receiver and agrees that such receiver shall have all of the rights and powers granted to Beneficiary pursuant to Section 7.4. In addition, upon the occurrence, and during the continuance, of an Event of Default to the extent permitted by Law, and with or without the appointment of a receiver, or an application therefor, Beneficiary may (a) enter upon, and take possession of (and Grantor shall surrender actual possession of), the Property or any part thereof, without notice to Grantor and without bringing any legal action or proceeding, or, if necessary by force, legal proceedings, ejectment or otherwise, and (b) remove and exclude Grantor and its agents and employees therefrom.
Section 7.7    Management of the Property.
Upon obtaining possession of the Property or upon the appointment of a receiver as described in Section 7.5, Beneficiary, Trustee or the receiver, as the case may be, may, at its sole option, (a) make all necessary or proper repairs and Additions to or upon the Property, (b) operate, maintain, control, make secure and preserve the Property, and (c) complete the construction of any unfinished Improvements on the Property and, in connection therewith, continue any and all outstanding contracts for the erection and completion of such Improvements and make and enter into any further contracts which may be necessary, either in their or its own name or in the name of Grantor (the costs of completing such Improvements shall be Expenses secured by this Deed of Trust and shall accrue interest as provided in the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents). Beneficiary, Trustee or such receiver shall be under no liability for, or by reason of, any such taking of possession, entry, holding, removal, maintaining, operation or management, except for gross negligence or willful misconduct. The exercise of the remedies provided in this Section shall not cure or waive any Event of Default, and the enforcement of such remedies, once commenced, shall continue for so long as Beneficiary shall elect, notwithstanding the fact that the exercise of such remedies may have, for a time, cured the original Event of Default.
Section 7.8    Uniform Commercial Code.
Beneficiary may proceed under the Uniform Commercial Code as to all or any part of the Personalty, and in conjunction therewith may exercise all of the rights, remedies and powers of a secured creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code. Upon the occurrence of any Event of

-17-


Default, Grantor shall assemble all of the Accessories and make the same available within the Improvements. Any notification required by the Uniform Commercial Code shall be deemed reasonably and properly given if sent in accordance with the Notice provisions of this Deed of Trust at least ten (10) days before any sale or other disposition of the Personalty. Disposition of the Personalty shall be deemed commercially reasonable if made pursuant to a public sale advertised at least twice in a newspaper of general circulation in the community where the Property is located. It shall be deemed commercially reasonable for the Trustee to dispose of the Personalty without giving any warranties as to the Personalty and specifically disclaiming all disposition warranties. Alternatively, Beneficiary may choose to dispose of some or all of the Property, in any combination consisting of both Personalty and Real Property, in one sale to be held in accordance with the Law and procedures applicable to real property, as permitted by Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Grantor agrees that such a sale of Personalty together with Real Property constitutes a commercially reasonable sale of the Personalty.
Section 7.9    Application of Proceeds.
Unless otherwise required by applicable Law, all proceeds from the sale of the Property or any part thereof pursuant to the rights and remedies set forth in this Article VII and any other proceeds received by Beneficiary from the exercise of any of its other rights and remedies hereunder or under the other Loan Documents shall be applied first to pay all Expenses and next in reduction of the other Obligations, in such manner and order as Beneficiary may elect.
Section 7.10    Other Remedies.
Beneficiary shall have the right from time to time to protect, exercise and enforce any legal or equitable remedy against Grantor provided under the Loan Documents or by applicable Laws.
Article VIII
Trustee.
Section 8.1    Liability of Trustee.
Trustee shall have no liability or responsibility for, and make no warranties in connection with, the validity or enforceability of any of the Loan Documents or the description, value or status of title to the Property. Trustee shall be protected in acting upon any notice, request, consent, demand, statement, note or other paper or document believed by Trustee to be genuine and to have been signed by the party or parties purporting to sign the same. Trustee shall not be liable for any error of judgment, nor for any act done or step taken or omitted, nor for any mistakes of law or fact, nor for anything which Trustee may do or refrain from doing in good faith, nor generally shall Trustee have any accountability hereunder except for willful misconduct or gross negligence. The powers and duties of Trustee hereunder may be exercised through such attorneys, agents or servants as Trustee may in good faith and reasonably appoint, and Trustee shall have no liability or responsibility for any act, failure to act, negligence or willful conduct of such attorney, agent or servant, so long as the selection was made with reasonable care. In addition, Trustee may consult with legal counsel selected by Trustee, and Trustee shall have no liability or responsibility by reason of any act or failure to act in accordance with the opinions of such counsel. To the extent permitted by applicable Laws, Trustee may act hereunder and may sell or otherwise dispose of the Property or any part thereof

-18-


as herein provided, although Trustee has been, may now be or may hereafter be, an attorney, officer, agent or employee of Beneficiary, in respect of any matter or business whatsoever. Trustee, however, shall have no obligation to sell all or any part of the Property following an Event of Default or to take any other action authorized to be taken by Trustee hereunder except upon the demand of Beneficiary.
Section 8.2    Indemnification of Trustee.
Grantor agrees to indemnify Trustee and to hold Trustee harmless from and against any and all Claims and Expenses directly or indirectly arising out of or resulting from any transaction, act, omission, event or circumstance in any way connected with the Property or the Loan, including but not limited to any Claim arising out of or resulting from any assertion or allegation that Trustee is liable for any act or omission of Grantor or any other Person in connection with the ownership, development, financing, operation or sale of the Property; provided, however, that Grantor shall not be obligated to indemnify Trustee with respect to any Claim arising solely from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Trustee or Beneficiary. The agreements and indemnifications contained in this Section shall apply to Claims arising both before and after the repayment of the Loan and shall survive the repayment of the Loan, any foreclosure or deed, conveyance or assignment in lieu thereof and any other action by Trustee to enforce the rights and remedies of Beneficiary or Trustee hereunder or under the other Loan Documents.
Section 8.3    Substitution of Trustee; Multiple Trustees.
Beneficiary shall have, and is hereby granted, the irrevocable power to appoint a new or replacement or substitute Trustee. Such power may be exercised at any time without notice, without cause and without specifying any reason therefor, by filing for record in the office where this Deed of Trust is recorded a Substitution of Trustee. The power of appointment of a successor Trustee may be exercised as often as and whenever Beneficiary may choose, and the exercise of the power of appointment, no matter how often, shall not be an exhaustion thereof. Upon the recordation of such Substitution of Trustee, the Trustee so appointed shall thereupon, without any further act or deed of conveyance, become fully vested with identically the same title and estate in and to the Property and with all the rights, powers, trusts and duties of its predecessor in the trust hereunder with like effect as if originally named as Trustee hereunder. Whenever in this Deed of Trust reference is made to Trustee, it shall be construed to mean each Person appointed as Trustee for the time being, whether original or successor in trust. All title, estate, rights, powers, trusts and duties granted to Trustee shall be in each Person appointed as Trustee so that any action hereunder by any Person appointed as Trustee shall for all purposes be deemed to be, and as effective as, the action of all Trustees.
Article IX
Miscellaneous.
Section 9.1    Rights, Powers and Remedies Cumulative.
Each right, power and remedy of Beneficiary or Trustee as provided for in this Deed of Trust, or in any of the other Loan Documents or now or hereafter existing by Law, shall be cumulative and concurrent and shall be in addition to every other right, power or remedy provided for in this Deed of Trust, or in any of the other Loan Documents or now or hereafter

-19-


existing by Law, and the exercise or beginning of the exercise by Beneficiary or Trustee of any one or more of such rights, powers or remedies shall not preclude the simultaneous or later exercise by Beneficiary or Trustee of any or all such other rights, powers or remedies.
Section 9.2    No Waiver by Beneficiary or Trustee.
No course of dealing or conduct by or among Beneficiary, Trustee and Grantor shall be effective to amend, modify or change any provisions of this Deed of Trust or the other Loan Documents. No failure or delay by Beneficiary or Trustee to insist upon the strict performance of any term, covenant or agreement of this Deed of Trust or of any of the other Loan Documents, or to exercise any right, power or remedy consequent upon a breach thereof, shall constitute a waiver of any such term, covenant or agreement or of any such breach, or preclude Beneficiary or Trustee from exercising any such right, power or remedy at any later time or times. By accepting payment after the due date of any of the Obligations, neither Beneficiary nor Trustee shall be deemed to waive the right either to require prompt payment when due of all other Obligations, or to declare an Event of Default for failure to make prompt payment of any such other Obligations. Neither Grantor nor any other Person now or hereafter obligated for the payment of the whole or any part of the Obligations shall be relieved of such liability by reason of (a) the failure of Beneficiary to comply with any request of Grantor or of any other Person to take action to foreclose this Deed of Trust or otherwise enforce any of the provisions of this Deed of Trust, or (b) any agreement or stipulation between any subsequent owner or owners of the Property and Beneficiary, or (c) Beneficiary’s extending the time of payment or modifying the terms of this Deed of Trust or any of the other Loan Documents without first having obtained the consent of Grantor or such other Person. Regardless of consideration, and without the necessity for any notice to or consent by the holder of any subordinate Lien on the Property, Beneficiary may release any Person at any time liable for any of the Obligations or any part of the security for the Obligations and may extend the time of payment or otherwise modify the terms of this Deed of Trust or any of the other Loan Documents without in any way impairing or affecting the Lien of this Deed of Trust or the priority of this Deed of Trust over any subordinate Lien. The holder of any subordinate Lien shall have no right to terminate any Lease regardless of whether or not such Lease is subordinate to this Deed of Trust. Beneficiary may resort to the security or collateral described in this Deed of Trust or any of the other Loan Documents in such order and manner as Beneficiary may elect in its sole discretion.
Section 9.3    Waivers and Agreements Regarding Remedies.
To the fullest extent Grantor may do so, Grantor hereby:
(a)    to the full extent permitted by Law, hereby voluntarily and knowingly waives its rights to reinstatement and redemption, and to the full extent permitted by Law, waives the benefits of all present and future valuation, appraisement, homestead, exemption, stay, extension or redemption, right to notice of election to accelerate the Obligations, and moratorium laws under any state or federal law;
(b)    waives all rights to a marshalling of the assets of Grantor, including the Property, or to a sale in the inverse order of alienation in the event of a foreclosure of the Property, and agrees not to assert any right under any Law pertaining to the marshalling of assets, the sale in inverse order of alienation, the exemption of homestead, the administration of estates of decedents, or other matters whatsoever to defeat, reduce or affect the right of Beneficiary under

-20-


the terms of this Deed of Trust to a sale of the Property without any prior or different resort for collection, or the right of Beneficiary to the payment of the Obligations out of the proceeds of sale of the Property in preference to every other claimant whatsoever;
(c)    waives any right to bring or utilize any defense, counterclaim or setoff, other than one which denies the existence or sufficiency of the facts upon which any foreclosure action is grounded. If any defense, counterclaim or setoff, other than one permitted by the preceding clause, is timely raised in a foreclosure action, such defense, counterclaim or setoff shall be dismissed. If such defense, counterclaim or setoff is based on a Claim which could be tried in an action for money damages, such Claim may be brought in a separate action which shall not thereafter be consolidated with the foreclosure action. The bringing of such separate action for money damages shall not be deemed to afford any grounds for staying the foreclosure action; and
(d)    waives and relinquishes any and all rights and remedies which Grantor may have or be able to assert by reason of the provisions of any Laws pertaining to the rights and remedies of sureties.
Section 9.4    Successors and Assigns.
All of the grants, covenants, terms, provisions and conditions of this Deed of Trust shall run with the Land and shall apply to and bind the successors and assigns of Grantor (including any permitted subsequent owner of the Property), and inure to the benefit of Beneficiary, its successors and assigns and to the successors in trust of Trustee.
Section 9.5    No Warranty by Beneficiary or Trustee.
By inspecting the Property or by accepting or approving anything required to be observed, performed or fulfilled by Grantor or to be given to Beneficiary or Trustee pursuant to this Deed of Trust or any of the other Loan Documents, Beneficiary and Trustee shall not be deemed to have warranted or represented the condition, sufficiency, legality, effectiveness or legal effect of the same, and such acceptance or approval shall not constitute any warranty or representation with respect thereto by Beneficiary or Trustee.
Section 9.6    Amendments.
This Deed of Trust may not be modified or amended except by an agreement in writing, signed by the party against whom enforcement of the change is sought.
Section 9.7    Severability.
In the event any one or more of the provisions of this Deed of Trust or any of the other Loan Documents shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part or in any other respect, or in the event any one or more of the provisions of the Loan Documents operates or would prospectively operate to invalidate this Deed of Trust or any of the other Loan Documents, then and in either of those events, at the option of Beneficiary, such provision or provisions only shall be deemed null and void and shall not affect the validity of the remaining Obligations, and the remaining provisions of the Loan Documents shall remain

-21-


operative and in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, prejudiced or disturbed thereby.
Section 9.8    Notices.
All Notices required or which any party desires to give hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be in writing and, unless otherwise specifically provided in such other Loan Document, shall be deemed sufficiently given or furnished if delivered by personal delivery, by nationally recognized overnight courier service or by certified United States mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the party to whom directed at the applicable address specified in the Preamble to this Deed of Trust (unless changed by similar notice in writing given by the particular party whose address is to be changed) or by facsimile. Any Notice shall be deemed to have been given either at the time of personal delivery or, in the case of courier or mail, as of the date of first attempted delivery at the address and in the manner provided herein, or, in the case of facsimile, upon receipt; provided that service of a Notice required by any applicable statute shall be considered complete when the requirements of that statute are met. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no notice of change of address shall be effective except upon actual receipt. This Section shall not be construed in any way to affect or impair any waiver of notice or demand provided in this Deed of Trust or in any other Loan Document or to require giving of notice or demand to or upon any Person in any situation or for any reason.
Section 9.9    Joint and Several Liability.
If Grantor consists of two (2) or more Persons, the term “Grantor” shall also refer to all Persons signing this Deed of Trust as Grantor, and to each of them, and all of them are jointly and severally bound, obligated and liable hereunder. Trustee or Beneficiary may release, compromise, modify or settle with any of Grantor, in whole or in part, without impairing, lessening or affecting the obligations and liabilities of the others of Grantor hereunder or under the Note. Any of the acts mentioned aforesaid may be done without the approval or consent of, or notice to, any of Grantor.
Section 9.10    Rules of Construction.

If a term is defined in Article 9 of the

-22-


Uniform Commercial Code of the State differently than in another Article of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State, the term shall have the meaning specified in Article 9.
Section 9.11    Governing Law.

(c)    Beneficiary may take and hold security for the Third Party Secured Obligations, accept additional or substituted security for that obligation, and subordinate, exchange, enforce, waive, release, reconvey, compromise, fail to perfect and sell or otherwise dispose of any such security.
(d)    Beneficiary may direct the order and manner of any sale of all or any part of any security now or later to be held for the Third Party Secured Obligations, and Beneficiary may also bid at any such sale and may apply all or any part of the Third Party Secured Obligations against the amount so bid.
(e)    Beneficiary may apply any payments or recoveries from Borrower (or any of them), Grantor or any other source, and any proceeds of any security, to the Third Party Secured Obligations in such manner, order and priority as Beneficiary may elect, whether that obligation is secured by this Deed of Trust or not at the time of the application.
(f)    Beneficiary may substitute, add or release any Borrower, guarantors or endorsers.
(g)    In addition to the Third Party Secured Obligation, Beneficiary may extend other credit to any Borrower, and may take and hold security for the credit so extended, whether or not such security is also security for the Third Party Secured Obligations, all without affecting Beneficiary’s rights or Grantor’s liability under this Deed of Trust.
Section 10.3    Deed of Trust to be Absolute.
Grantor expressly agrees that until the earlier of (i) the release and reconveyance of this Deed of Trust in accordance with Section 2.6 of the Loan Agreement, or (ii) the date that the Third Party Secured Obligations are paid and performed in full, and each and every term, covenant and condition of this Deed of Trust is fully performed, Grantor shall not be released by or because of:
(a)    Any act or event which might otherwise discharge, reduce, limit or modify Grantor’s obligations under this Deed of Trust;
(b)    Any waiver, extension, modification, forbearance, delay or other act or omission of Beneficiary, or the failure by Beneficiary to proceed promptly or otherwise against any Borrower, Grantor or any security;
(c)    Any action, omission or circumstance which might increase the likelihood that Grantor may be called upon to perform under this Deed of Trust or which might affect the rights or remedies of Grantor against any Borrower; or
(d)    Any Borrower becoming insolvent or subject to any bankruptcy or other voluntary or involuntary proceeding, in or out of court, for the adjustment of debtor-creditor relationships (an “Insolvency Proceeding”) and as a result thereof some or all of the Third Party Secured Obligations being terminated, rejected, discharged, modified or abrogated.
This Deed of Trust shall remain in full force and effect without regard to, and shall not be affected or impaired, by any invalidity, irregularity or unenforceability, in whole or in part (including with respect to any netting provision) of any Loan Document or Swap Contract or any

-24-


limitation on the liability of any Borrower thereunder or any limitation on the method or terms of payment thereunder which may now or in the future be caused or imposed in any manner whatsoever. Grantor hereby acknowledges that absent this Section 10.3, Grantor might have a defense to the enforcement of this Deed of Trust as a result of one or more of the foregoing acts, omissions, agreements, waivers or matters. Grantor hereby expressly waives and surrenders any defense to any liability under this Deed of Trust based upon any of such acts, omissions, agreements, waivers or matters. It is the express intent of Grantor that Grantor’s obligations under this Deed of Trust are and shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable.
Section 10.4    Grantor’s Waivers.
Grantor waives:
(a)    All statutes of limitations as a defense to any action or proceeding brought against Grantor by Beneficiary, to the fullest extent permitted by law;
(b)    Any right it may have to require Beneficiary to proceed against any Borrower or any other party, proceed against or exhaust any security held from any Borrower or any other party, or pursue any other remedy in Beneficiary’s power to pursue;
(c)    To the extent permitted by applicable law, the benefit of all laws now existing or which may hereafter be enacted providing for any appraisement, valuation, stay, extension, redemption or moratorium;
(d)    All rights of marshaling in the event of foreclosure;
(e)    Any defense based on any claim that Grantor’s obligations exceed or are more burdensome than those of any other Borrower;
(f)    Any defense based on: (i) any legal disability of any Borrower, (ii) any release, discharge, modification, impairment or limitation of the liability of any Borrower to Beneficiary from any cause, whether consented to by Beneficiary or arising by operation of law or from any Insolvency Proceeding, and (iii) any rejection, disallowance or disaffirmance of any of the Third Party Secured Obligations, or any part of them, or any security held for any of them, in any such Insolvency Proceeding;
(g)    Any defense based on any action taken or omitted by Beneficiary in any Insolvency Proceeding involving any Borrower, including. without limitation, filing, defending, settling or obtaining a judgment or order on any proof of claim or any adversary proceeding, making any election to have Beneficiary’s claim allowed as being secured, partially secured or unsecured, including any election under 11 U.S.C. Section 1111(b), seeking relief from the automatic stay or adequate protection, including submitting an appraisal of any security, voting to reject or accept or failing to vote on any reorganization plan, making any extension of credit by Beneficiary to any Borrower in any Insolvency Proceeding, and the taking and holding by Beneficiary of any security for any such extension of credit, whether or not such security is also security for the Third Party Secured Obligations;
(h)    All presentments, demands for performance, notices of nonperformance, protests, notices of protest, notices of dishonor, notices of acceptance of this Deed of Trust and of the

-25-


existence, creation, or incurring of new or additional indebtedness, and demands and notices of every kind; and
(i)    Any defense based on or arising out of any defense that any Borrower may have to the payment or performance of the Third Party Secured Obligations or any part of them other than payment and performance in full.
Section 10.5    Grantor’s Additional Waivers.
Grantor waives:
(a)    The obligations of Grantor hereunder are independent of the obligations of any other Borrower, and a separate action or actions may be brought against Grantor whether or not action or suit is brought against any other Borrower or any other Borrower is joined in any such action or actions. At the option of Beneficiary, Grantor may be joined in any action or proceeding commenced by Beneficiary against any other Borrower in connection with or based on the Third Party Secured Obligations or any security therefor, and recovery may be had against Grantor in such action or proceeding without any requirement that Beneficiary first assert, prosecute or exhaust any remedy or claim against any other Borrower.
(b)    Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default under any of the Loan Documents, Beneficiary in its sole discretion, without prior notice to or consent of Grantor, may elect to: (i) foreclose either judicially or nonjudicially against any real or personal property security that Beneficiary may hold for the Third Party Secured Obligations other than the Property hereby encumbered, (ii) accept a transfer of any such security in lieu of foreclosure, (iii) compromise or adjust any of the Third Party Secured Obligations or any part of them or make any other accommodation with any other Borrower or Grantor, or (iv) exercise any other remedy against any Borrower or any security other than the Property hereby encumbered. With respect to security other than the Property hereby encumbered, no such action by Beneficiary shall release or limit the liability of Grantor, who shall remain liable under this Deed of Trust after the action, even if the effect of the action is to deprive Grantor of any subrogation rights, rights of indemnity, rights of contribution, or other rights to collect reimbursement from any Borrower for any recovery by Beneficiary against Grantor, whether contractual or arising by operation of law or otherwise. After any foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure of any real or personal property pledged to secure any of the Third Party Secured Obligations, Grantor shall under no circumstances be deemed to have any right, title, interest or claim in or to such property, whether it is held by Beneficiary or any third party.
(c)    Regardless of whether Beneficiary may have recovered against Grantor, Grantor hereby waives, to the extent permitted by applicable law: (i) all rights of subrogation, all rights of indemnity, and any other rights to collect reimbursement or contribution from any other Borrower or any other party for any recovery by Beneficiary against Grantor, whether contractual or arising by operation of law (including the United States Bankruptcy Code or any successor or similar statute) or otherwise (collectively, “Reimbursement Rights”), (ii) all rights to enforce any remedy that Beneficiary may have against any other Borrower, and (iii) all rights to participate in any security now or later to be held by Beneficiary for the Third Party Secured Obligations. To the extent Grantor’s waiver of Reimbursement Rights is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void or voidable for any reason, any Reimbursement Rights Grantor may have against any other Borrower or any collateral or security shall be junior and subordinate

-26-


to any rights Beneficiary may have against such Borrower and to all right, title and interest Beneficiary may have in any such collateral or security. If any amount should be paid to Grantor on account of any Reimbursement Rights at any time when any the Third Party Secured Obligations have not been paid in full, such amount shall be held in trust for Beneficiary and shall immediately be paid over to Beneficiary to be credited and applied against the Third Party Secured Obligations, whether matured or unmatured, in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents. The covenants and waivers of Grantor set forth in this Section 10.5(c) shall be effective until all of the Third Party Secured Obligations have been paid and performed in full and are made solely for the benefit of Beneficiary.
(d)    Grantor waives any rights and defenses described in Section 2856(a) of the California Civil Code that are or may become available to Grantor, including, without limitation, any rights and defenses by reason of Sections 2787 to 2855, inclusive, of the California Civil Code.
(e)    Grantor waives all rights and defenses that Grantor may have because the Third Party Secured Obligation may be secured by real property other than the Property hereby encumbered. This means, among other things.
(i)    Beneficiary may collect from Grantor (including enforcing this Deed of Trust against Grantor) without first foreclosing on any real or personal property collateral pledged by Borrower;
(ii)    If Beneficiary forecloses on any real property collateral pledged by Borrower:
(A)    The amount of the Third Party Secured Obligation may be reduced only by the price for which that collateral is sold at the foreclosure sale, even if the collateral is worth more than the sale price.
(B)    Beneficiary may collect from Grantor (including enforcing this Deed of Trust against Grantor) even if Beneficiary, by foreclosing on the real property collateral pledged by Borrower, has destroyed any right Grantor may have to collect from Borrower.
This subsection 10.5(e) is an unconditional and irrevocable waiver of any rights and defenses Grantor may have because the Third Party Secured Obligation may be secured by real property other the Property hereby encumbered. These rights and defenses include, but are not limited to, any rights or defenses based upon Section 580a, 580b, 580d, or 726 of the California Code of Civil Procedure.
(f)    Without limiting the generality of the foregoing subsection 10.5(e), Grantor understands and acknowledges that if Beneficiary forecloses judicially or nonjudicially against any real property securing the Third Party Secured Obligation other than the Property hereby encumbered, that foreclosure could impair or destroy any ability that Grantor may have to seek reimbursement, contribution or indemnification from Borrower or others based on any Reimbursement Right Grantor may have for any recovery by Beneficiary under this Deed of Trust. Grantor further understands and acknowledges that in the absence of this Section 10.5, such potential impairment or destruction of Grantor’s rights, if any, may entitle Grantor to assert

-27-


a defense to this Deed of Trust based on Section 580d of the California Code of Civil Procedure as interpreted in Union Bank v. Gradsky, 265 Cal.App.2d 40 (1968). By executing this Deed of Trust, Grantor freely, irrevocably and unconditionally: (i) waives and relinquishes that defense and agrees that Grantor will be fully liable under this Deed of Trust even though Beneficiary may foreclose judicially or nonjudicially against any real property security for the Third Party Secured Obligation other than the Property; (ii) agrees that Grantor will not assert that defense in any action or proceeding which Beneficiary may commence to enforce this Deed of Trust; (iii) acknowledges and agrees that the rights and defenses waived by Grantor under this Deed of Trust include any right or defense that Grantor may have or be entitled to assert based upon or arising out of any one or more of Sections 580a, 580b, 580d or 726 of the California Code of Civil Procedure or Section 2848 of the California Civil Code; and (iv) acknowledges and agrees that Beneficiary is relying on this waiver in extending credit to Borrower in the form of the Third Party Secured Obligation, and that this waiver is a material part of the consideration which Beneficiary is receiving for extending such credit to Borrower.
(g)    Grantor waives any right or defense it may have at law or equity, including California Code of Civil Procedure Section 580a, to a fair market value hearing or action to determine a deficiency judgment after a foreclosure of any property other than the Property hereby encumbered.
(h)    No provision or waiver in this Deed of Trust shall be construed as limiting the generality of any other provision or waiver contained in this Deed of Trust.
Section 10.6    Revival and Reinstatement.
If Beneficiary is required to pay, return or restore to any Borrower or any other person any amounts previously paid on any of the Third Party Secured Obligations because of any Insolvency Proceeding of any Borrower, any stop notice or any other reason, the obligations of Grantor shall be reinstated and revived and the rights of Beneficiary shall continue with regard to such amounts, all as though they had never been paid, and this Deed of Trust shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be.
Section 10.7    Information Regarding Borrowers.
Grantor represents that: (a) Beneficiary has not made any representation to Grantor as to the creditworthiness of any Borrower, and (b) no oral promises, assurances, representations or warranties have been made by or on behalf of Beneficiary to induce Grantor to execute and deliver this Deed of Trust. Grantor has received and approved copies of all other requested Loan Documents. Before signing this Deed of Trust, Grantor investigated the financial condition and business operations of each other Borrower and such other matters as Grantor deemed appropriate to assure itself of each such Borrower’s ability to discharge its obligations in connection with the Third Party Secured Obligations. Grantor assumes full responsibility for that due diligence and for keeping informed of all matters which may affect any Borrower’s ability to pay and perform its obligations to Beneficiary. Beneficiary has no any duty to disclose to Grantor any information which Beneficiary may have or receive about any Borrower’s financial condition or business operations or any other circumstances bearing on any Borrower’s ability to perform.

Section 10.8    Counsel; Integration; Miscellaneous.
Grantor acknowledges that Grantor has had adequate opportunity to carefully read this Deed of Trust and to consult with an attorney of Grantor’s choice prior to signing it. No consent, approval or authorization of or notice to any person or entity is required in connection with Grantor’s execution of and obligations under this Deed of Trust, and Grantor acknowledges its execution and delivery of this Deed of Trust is made voluntarily without any duress or undue influence of any kind. No course of prior dealing, usage of trade, parol or extrinsic evidence of any nature shall be used to supplement, modify or vary any of the terms hereof. This Deed of Trust is intended by the parties to be a fully integrated and final expression of their agreement. This Deed of Trust and the other Loan Documents incorporate all negotiations of the parties and constitute the parties’ entire agreement. Grantor acknowledges that is relying on no written or oral agreement, representation, warranty or understanding of any kind made by Beneficiary, or any employee, attorney or agent of Beneficiary, except for the agreements of Beneficiary set forth herein and in the Loan Documents.
