ARTICLE III
THE CERTIFICATES AND TRANSFERS OF INTERESTS

Section 3.01.  The Certificates.  

The Trust Certificate and the Class X Certificate shall each initially be issued as a single certificate in definitive, fully registered form and shall each initially be registered in the name of the Initial Holder.  No Trust Certificate or Class X Certificate shall be issued in authorized denominations of less than a 100% Percentage Interest in such Certificates.  The Certificates shall be executed on behalf of the Trust by manual or facsimile signature of an Authorized Officer of the Owner Trustee and authenticated in the manner provided in Section 3.02.  A Certificate bearing the manual signatures of individuals who were, at the time when such signatures shall have been affixed, authorized to sign on behalf of the Trust, shall be validly issued and entitled to the benefit of this Agreement, notwithstanding that such individuals or any of them shall have ceased to be so authorized prior to the authentication and delivery of such Certificate or did not hold such offices at the date of authentication and delivery of such Certificate.  A Person shall become a Certificateholder and shall be entitled to the rights and subject to the obligations of a Certificateholder hereunder upon such Person’s acceptance of a Certificate duly registered in such Person’s name pursuant to Section 3.03.

Section 3.02.  Execution, Authentication and Delivery of Certificates.  

Concurrently with the sale of the Collateral to the Trust pursuant to the Sale and Servicing Agreement, the Owner Trustee shall cause any Certificate issued hereunder to be executed and authenticated on behalf of the Trust and delivered to or upon the written order of the Depositor, signed by its chairman of the board, its president or any vice president, without further corporate action by the Depositor, in authorized denominations.  No Certificate shall entitle its Holder to any benefits under this Agreement or be valid for any purpose unless there shall appear on such Certificate a certificate of authentication substantially in the form set forth in Exhibit A or Exhibit B hereto, as applicable, executed by the Owner Trustee or the Administrator, as the Owner Trustee’s authenticating agent, by manual signature; such authentication shall constitute conclusive evidence that such Certificate shall have been duly authenticated and delivered hereunder.  All Certificates shall be dated the date of their authentication.

Section 3.03.  Registration of and Limitations on Transfers and Exchanges of Certificates.  

The Certificate Registrar shall keep or cause to be kept, at the office or agency maintained pursuant to Section 3.08, a Certificate Register in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Certificate Registrar shall provide for the registration of Certificates and of transfers and exchanges of Certificates as herein provided; provided, however, that the Certificates to be issued in connection with any such transfer or exchange shall comply with the minimum denomination requirements set forth in Section 3.01 hereof.  The Administrator shall be the initial Certificate Registrar.  If the Certificate Registrar resigns or is removed, the Owner Trustee, at the written direction of the Depositor, shall appoint a successor Certificate Registrar.

Subject to satisfaction of the conditions set forth below, upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Certificate at the office or agency maintained pursuant to Section 3.08, the Owner Trustee shall execute, authenticate and deliver (or cause the Administrator as its authenticating agent to authenticate and deliver), in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new Certificates evidencing in aggregate the Percentage Interest of the Certificates so surrendered and dated the date of authentication by the Owner Trustee or the Certificate Registrar.  At the option of the Holder, Certificates may be exchanged for other Certificates evidencing in the aggregate the Percentage Interest of the Certificates to be surrendered in such exchange at the office or agency maintained pursuant to Section 3.08.

Every Certificate presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Owner Trustee and the Certificate Registrar duly executed by the Holder or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing. Each Certificate surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall be cancelled and subsequently disposed of by the Certificate Registrar in accordance with its customary practice.

No service charge shall be made for any registration of transfer or exchange of Certificates, but the Owner Trustee or the Certificate Registrar may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any transfer or exchange of Certificates or any other expense arising as a result of any registration of transfer or exchange.

The preceding provisions of this Section notwithstanding, the Owner Trustee shall not make and the Certificate Registrar shall not register transfer or exchanges of Certificates for a period of 15 days preceding the due date for any payment with respect to such Certificates.

No transfer of a Trust Certificate or a Class X Certificate shall be made unless such transfer is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws or is made in accordance with such act and laws.  Except in the case of the issuance of the Trust Certificate and the Class X Certificate to the Initial Holder or any subsequent transfer to an affiliate of the Initial Holder, in the event of any such transfer, the Certificate Registrar or the Depositor shall prior to such transfer require the transferee to execute  an investment letter (in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D) certifying to the Trust, the Owner Trustee, the Administrator, the Certificate Registrar, the Master Servicer and the Depositor that such transferee is a “qualified institutional buyer” under Rule 144A under the Securities Act, which certifi cate shall not be an expense of the Trust, the Owner Trustee, the Administrator, the Certificate Registrar, the Master Servicer or the Depositor.  The Holder of the Trust Certificate or the Class X Certificate desiring to effect such transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Trust, the Owner Trustee, the Administrator, the Certificate Registrar, the Certificate Paying Agent, the Master Servicer and the Depositor against any and all liability that may result if the transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with such federal and state laws.

Except in the case of the initial transfer of the Trust Certificate and the Class X Certificate to the Initial Holder or any subsequent transfer to an affiliate thereof, no transfer of a Certificate shall be made unless the Certificate Registrar shall have received a transfer affidavit (in the form attached hereto as Exhibit E) from the proposed transferee of such Certificate to the effect that such proposed transferee is not acquiring such Certificate for, or with the assets of, an employee benefit plan or other retirement arrangement that is subject to Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code or any substantially similar law (“Similar Law”), or any entity deemed to hold the plan assets of the foregoing (collectively, “Benefit Plans”), which representation letter shall not be an expense of the Trust, the Owner Trustee, the Administrator, the Certificate R egistrar, the Certificate Paying Agent, the Master Servicer or the Depositor; provided that, in the case of a Book-Entry Certificate, such representations shall be deemed to have been made to the Certificate Registrar by the transferee’s acceptance of such Book-Entry Certificate (or the acceptance of the beneficial interest in such Certificate).

Prior to and as a condition of the registration of any transfer, sale or other disposition of the Trust Certificate and the Class X Certificate, each Initial Holder of the Trust Certificate and the Class X Certificate and each prospective Holder of a Trust Certificate or a Class X Certificate shall represent and warrant in writing, in substantially the form set forth in Exhibit F hereto, to the Owner Trustee, the Administrator and the Certificate Registrar and any of their respective successors that:

(i)

Such Person is duly authorized to purchase a Trust Certificate or a Class X Certificate and its purchase of investments having the characteristics of a Trust Certificate or a Class X Certificate is authorized under, and not directly or indirectly in contravention of, any law, charter, trust instrument or other operative document, investment guidelines or list of permissible or impermissible investments that is applicable to the investor;

Such Person understands that each holder of a Trust Certificate or a Class X Certificate, by virtue of its acceptance thereof, assents to the terms, provisions and conditions of the Agreement; and

(iii)

So long as any Notes are Outstanding, such Person is a REIT or a Qualified REIT Subsidiary.

The Certificate Registrar shall cause each Trust Certificate and Class X Certificate to contain a legend, substantially similar to the applicable legends provided in Exhibit A hereto, stating that transfer of such Trust Certificate or Class X Certificate is subject to certain restrictions and referring prospective purchasers of the Trust Certificate and the Class X Certificate to this Section 3.03 with respect to such restrictions.

Without limitation to the foregoing, neither the Class X Certificate nor the Trust Certificate may be transferred, sold or otherwise disposed of except to a Person that acquires a 100% Percentage Interest in both such Classes of Certificates.  Any transfer, sale or other disposition in violation of the foregoing shall be void ab initio.    

Section 3.04.  Lost, Stolen, Mutilated or Destroyed Certificates.  

If (a) a mutilated Certificate is surrendered to the Certificate Registrar, or (b) the Certificate Registrar receives evidence to its satisfaction that a Certificate has been destroyed, lost or stolen, and there is delivered to the Certificate Registrar proof of ownership satisfactory to the Certificate Registrar, together with such security or indemnity as required by the Certificate Registrar and the Owner Trustee to save each of them harmless, then in the absence of notice to the Certificate Registrar or the Owner Trustee that such Certificate has been acquired by a protected purchaser, the Owner Trustee shall execute on behalf of the Trust, and the Owner Trustee or the Certificate Registrar shall authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate, a new Certificate of like tenor and Percentage Interest.  In conne ction with the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section 3.04, the Owner Trustee or the Certificate Registrar may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any expenses of the Owner Trustee or the Certificate Registrar (including any fees and expenses of counsel) and any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection therewith.  Any duplicate Certificate issued pursuant to this Section 3.04 shall constitute conclusive evidence of an interest in the Trust, as if originally issued, whether or not the lost, stolen or destroyed Certificate shall be found at any time.

Section 3.05.  Persons Deemed Certificateholders.  

Prior to due presentation of a Certificate for registration of transfer, the Owner Trustee, the Certificate Registrar or any Certificate Paying Agent may treat the Person in whose name any Certificate is registered in the Certificate Register as the owner of such Certificate for the purpose of receiving distributions pursuant to Section 4.02 and for all other purposes whatsoever, and none of the Trust, the Owner Trustee, the Certificate Registrar or any Certificate Paying Agent shall be bound by any notice to the contrary.

Section 3.07.  Book-Entry Certificates.  

(a)  Any Book–Entry Certificates shall be registered initially on the Certificate Register in the name of Cede & Co., the nominee of DTC, and no owner thereof will receive a definitive Certificate representing such Owner’s interest in such Certificate, except as provided in Section 3.07(c).  Unless and until definitive, fully registered Certificates (the “Definitive Certificates”) have been issued to such Owners pursuant to Section 3.07(c):

(v)

whenever this Agreement or any other Operative Agreement requires or permits actions to be taken based upon instructions or directions of Holders of Certificates evidencing a Percentage Interest of the Book-Entry Certificates, the Clearing Agency shall be deemed to represent such percentage only to the extent that it has received instructions to such effect from Owners and/or Clearing Agency Participants owning or representing, respectively, such required percentage of the beneficial interest in the Book-Entry Certificates and has delivered such instructions to the Owner Trustee.

(b)

 Notices to Clearing Agency.  

Whenever a notice or other communication to the Certificateholders is required under this Agreement, unless and until Definitive Certificates shall have been issued to such Owners pursuant to Section 3.07(c), the Owner Trustee shall give all such notices and communications specified herein to be given to Holders of the Book-Entry Certificates to the Clearing Agency, and shall have no obligation to such Owners.

(c)

Definitive Certificates.  

If (i) DTC or the Depositor advises the Owner Trustee in writing that the Clearing Agency is no longer willing or able to properly discharge its responsibilities with respect to the Book–Entry Certificates and the Depositor or the Owner Trustee is unable to locate a qualified successor or (ii) the Trust at its option advises the Owner Trustee in writing that it elects to terminate the book–entry system through the Clearing Agency, then the Clearing Agency shall notify all Owners and the Owner Trustee of the occurrence of such event and of the availability of Definitive Certificates to Owners requesting the same.  Upon surrender to the Owner Trustee of the typewritten Certificates representing the Book–Entry Certificates by the Clearing Agency, accompanied by registration instructions, the Owner Trustee shall cause the execution and authentication of the Definitive Certificates in accordance with the instructions of the Clearing Agency.  None of the Trust, the Certificate Registrar or the Owner Trustee shall be liable for any delay in delivery of such instructions and may conclusively rely on, and shall be protected in relying on, such instructions.  Upon the issuance of Definitive Certificates, the Owner Trustee shall recognize the Holders of the Definitive Certificates as Certificateholders.

Section 4.01.  Certificate Account.  

All of the right, title and interest of the Trust in all funds on deposit from time to time in the Certificate Account and in all proceeds thereof shall be held for the benefit of the Certificateholders and such other persons entitled to distributions therefrom.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein or in the Sale and Servicing Agreement, the Certificate Account shall be under the sole dominion and control of the Owner Trustee for the benefit of the Certificateholders.

The Certificate Account shall be subject to and established and maintained in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Sale and Servicing Agreement and the Indenture, including, without limitation, the provisions of Section 3.22 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement regarding distributions from the Certificate Account.

Section 4.02.  Application of Trust Funds.

(a)

  The Certificate Paying Agent is hereby directed to distribute to the Certificateholders on each Payment Date amounts on deposit in the Certificate Account with respect to such Payment Date and payable to the Certificates in accordance with Section 3.22 and Section 4.1 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement and the Certificate Paying Agent hereby acknowledges such direction.  The Certificate Paying Agent shall pay amounts in the Certificate Account on each Payment Date up to the Released Principal Amount for such Payment Date to the Holder of the Trust Certificate and shall pay all other amounts in the Certificate Account on each Payment Date to the Holder of the Class X Certificate.    

(b)

All payments to be made under this Agreement by the Certificate Paying Agent shall be made only from the income and proceeds, including net proceeds from the sale of the Offered Securities, of the Trust Estate and only to the extent that the Certificate Paying Agent has received such income or proceeds.  The Certificate Paying Agent shall not be liable to the Certificateholders, the Indenture Trustee or the Administrator for any amounts payable pursuant to this Section 4.02 except to the extent that non-payment is due to the Certificate Paying Agent’s acts or omissions amounting to willful misconduct or gross negligence.

(c)

In the event that any withholding tax is imposed on the distributions (or allocations of income) to the Certificateholders, such tax shall reduce the amount otherwise distributable to the Certificateholders in accordance with this Section 4.02.  The Certificate Paying Agent, if instructed by the Master Servicer or Owner Trustee, is hereby authorized and directed to retain or cause to be retained from amounts otherwise distributable to the Certificateholders sufficient funds (as determined by the Master Servicer or Owner Trustee) for the payment of any tax that is legally owed by the Trust (but such authorization shall not prevent the Trust from contesting any such tax in appropriate proceedings, and withholding payment of such tax, if permitted by law, pending the outcome of such proceedings).  The amount of any withholding tax imposed with respect to a Certificateholder sh all be treated as cash distributed to such Certificateholder at the time it is withheld by the Certificate Paying Agent and remitted to the appropriate taxing authority.  If there is a possibility that withholding tax is payable with respect to a distribution (such as a distribution to a non-U.S. Certificateholder), the Certificate Paying Agent shall withhold such amounts in accordance with this paragraph (c).  In the event that the Certificateholder wishes to apply for a refund of any such withholding  tax, the Administrator shall reasonably cooperate with such Certificateholder in making such a claim so long as such Certificateholder agrees to reimburse the Administrator for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred.

(d)

Distributions to the Holders of the Certificates shall be subordinated to the creditors of the Trust, including, without limitation, the Noteholders and the Owner Trustee.

Section 4.03.  Method of Payment.  

Subject to Section 8.01(c), distributions required to be made to the Certificateholders on any Payment Date as provided in Section 4.02 shall be made to the Certificateholders of record on the preceding Record Date either by, in the case of the Initial Holder and any other Certificateholder owning a Single Certificate, wire transfer, in immediately available funds, to the account of such Holder at a bank or other entity having appropriate facilities therefor, if such Certificateholder shall have provided to the Certificate Registrar appropriate written instructions at least five Business Days prior to such Payment Date or, if not, by check mailed to such Certificateholder at the address of such Holder appearing in the Certificate Register; provided that, unless Definitive Certificates have been issued pursuant to Section 3.07(c), with respect to Certificates registered on the Record Date in the name of the nominee of the Clearing Agency (initially, such nominee to be Cede & Co.), payment will be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated by such nominee.

Section 4.04.  Tax Returns.  

The Depositor shall (a) maintain (or cause to be maintained) the books of the Trust on a calendar year basis using the accrual method of accounting, (b) deliver (or cause to be delivered) to each Certificateholder as may be required by the Code and applicable Treasury Regulations, such information as may be required to enable each Certificateholder to prepare its federal and state income tax returns, (c) prepare and file or cause to be prepared and filed such tax returns relating to the Trust as may be required by the Code and applicable Treasury Regulations (making such elections as may from time to time be required or appropriate under any applicable state or federal statutes, rules or regulations) and (d) collect or cause to be collected any withholding tax as described in and in accordance with Section 4.02 of this Agreement with respect to income or distributions to Certificateh olders and prepare or cause to be prepared the appropriate forms relating thereto; provided, however, that the Depositor shall not be required to compute the Trust’s gross income and provided, further, that the Depositor shall not be required to prepare and file partnership or corporation  income tax returns on behalf of the Trust, or any additional tax work caused by Section 3.11, unless it receives an Opinion of Counsel (which shall not be at the Depositor’s expense, but shall be an expense of the Trust or other party requesting such opinion) as to the necessity of such filings, and a copy of the partnership agreement or comparable documentation, if available, and reimbursement for related reasonable expenses from the Trust not to exceed $5,000 per year.  The parties hereto intend that the Trust will be treated as a Qualified REIT Subsidiary of the Initial Holder (or a subsequent single Holder of the Trust Certificate and the Class X Certificate ), and therefore, all assets, liabilities, and items of income, deduction, and credit of the Trust shall be treated as assets, liabilities, and items of income, deduction, and credit of the Initial Holder (or a subsequent single Holder of the Trust Certificate and the Class X Certificate) on the federal income tax return of the Initial Holder (or a subsequent single Holder of the Trust Certificate and the Class X Certificate).

The Owner Trustee shall sign all tax and information returns prepared or caused to be prepared by the Depositor pursuant to this Section 4.04 at the written request of the Depositor, and in doing so shall rely entirely upon, and shall have no liability for information or calculations provided by, the Depositor, or any other Person.  In no event shall the Depositor be liable for any errors or omissions in preparing or filing the tax returns or errors or omissions in maintaining the books of the Trust if such errors or omissions were due to errors or omissions in the information contained in the reports delivered by the Servicer or the Master Servicer pursuant to the Sale and Servicing Agreement.  Anything to the contrary notwithstanding, in no event shall the Depositor be liable for any errors or omissions in the preparing or filing of any tax returns or in maintaining the b ooks of the Trust unless such error or omissions are due to the Depositor’s negligence or willful misconduct in so preparing, filing or maintaining.

If no Note is Outstanding and the Trust is classified as a partnership for federal income tax purposes, the Depositor shall cause the Trust to maintain capital accounts and make partnership allocations in accordance with Section 704 of the Code.  The holder of the Trust Certificates evidencing the largest Percentage Interest shall be designated as the “tax matters partner” of the Trust.

all rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Owner Trustee shall be conferred upon and exercised or performed by the Owner Trustee and such separate trustee or co-trustee jointly (it being understood that such separate trustee or co-trustee is not authorized to act separately without the Owner Trustee joining in such act), except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed, the Owner Trustee shall be incompetent or unqualified to perform such act or acts, in which event such rights, powers, duties, and obligations (including the holding of title to the Trust or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed singly by such separate trustee or co-trustee, but solely at the direction of the Owner Trustee;

(ii)

no trustee under this Agreement shall be personally liable by reason of any act or omission of any other trustee under this Agreement; and

(iii)

the Administrator and the Owner Trustee acting jointly may at any time accept the resignation of or remove any separate trustee or co-trustee.

Any notice, request or other writing given to the Owner Trustee shall be deemed to have been given to the separate trustees and co-trustees, as if given to each of them.  Every instrument appointing any separate trustee or co-trustee, other than this Agreement, shall refer to this Agreement and to the conditions of this Article.

Any separate trustee or co-trustee may at any time appoint the Owner Trustee as its Agent or attorney-in-fact with full power and authority, to the extent not prohibited by law, to do any lawful act under or in respect of this Agreement on its behalf and in its name.  If any separate trustee or co-trustee shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and trusts shall vest in and be exercised by the Owner Trustee, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor trustee.

This Agreement may be amended by the Depositor, the Administrator and the Owner Trustee, with the consent of the Certificateholders and with prior written notice to the Rating Agencies, but without the consent of any of the Noteholders or the Indenture Trustee, to cure any ambiguity, to correct or supplement any provisions in this Agreement or for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions in this Agreement or of modifying in any manner the rights of the Noteholders or the Certificateholders; provided, however, that such action shall not, as evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel, adversely affect in any material respect the interests of any Noteholder or Certificateholder or cause the Trust to be subject to an entity level tax for federal income tax purposes.  An amendment shall not be deemed to adversely affect in any material respect the interests of any Noteholder or Certificateholder and no opinion referred to in the preceding proviso shall be required to be delivered if the Person requesting the amendment obtains a letter from each Rating Agency stating that the amendment would not result in the downgrading or withdrawal of the respective ratings then assigned to each Class of Notes and Certificates.  Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, an opinion shall be required with respect to tax matters as set forth in this paragraph.

This Agreement may also be amended from time to time by the Depositor, the Administrator and the Owner Trustee, with the prior written consent of the Rating Agencies and with the prior written consent of the Indenture Trustee, the Holders (as defined in the Indenture) of Notes evidencing more than 662/3% of the Outstanding Amount of the Notes, and the consent of the Holders of 662/3% of the Percentage Interests in each Class of Certificates, for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions of this Agreement or of modifying in any manner the rights of the Certificateholders; provided, however, that no such amendment shall (a) increase or reduce in any manner the amount of, or accelerate or delay the timing of, collections of payments on the Collateral or distributions that are required to be made for the benefit of the Noteholders or the Certificateholders or (b) reduce the aforesaid percentage of the Outstanding Amount of the Notes and the Percentage Interests of Holders of Certificates required to consent to any such amendment, in either case of clause (a) or (b) without the consent of the holders of all the outstanding Notes and Certificates, respectively.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, no provision of Section 2.03 hereof may be amended in any manner unless (i) 100% of the Outstanding Amount of the Noteholders have consented in writing thereto, (ii) the Rating Agencies have consented in writing thereto or (iii) the Notes have been paid in full and the Indenture has been discharged.

Promptly after the execution of any such amendment or consent, the Administrator shall furnish written notification of the substance of such amendment or consent to each Certificateholder, the Indenture Trustee and the Rating Agencies.

It shall not be necessary for the consent of Certificateholders, the Noteholders or the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Section 10.01 to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment or consent, but it shall be sufficient if such consent shall approve the substance thereof.  The manner of obtaining such consents (and any other consents of Certificateholders provided for in this Agreement or in any other Operative Agreement) and of evidencing the authorization of the execution thereof by Certificateholders shall be subject to such reasonable requirements as the Owner Trustee may prescribe.

Promptly after the execution of any amendment to the Certificate of Trust, the Owner Trustee shall cause the filing of such amendment with the Secretary of State.

Prior to the execution of any amendment to this Agreement or the Certificate of Trust, the Owner Trustee and the Administrator shall be entitled to receive and rely upon an Opinion of Counsel, at the expense of the Trust, stating that the execution of such amendment is authorized or permitted by this Agreement.  Neither the Owner Trustee nor the Administrator shall be obligated to enter into any such amendment which affects the Owner Trustee’s or Administrator’s own rights, duties or immunities under this Agreement or otherwise.

Section 10.03.  Pledge of Collateral by Owner Trustee is Binding.  

The pledge of the Collateral to the Indenture Trustee by the Trust made under the Indenture and pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall bind the Certificateholders and shall be effective to transfer or convey the rights of the Trust and the Certificateholders in and to such Collateral to the extent set forth in the Indenture.  No purchaser or other grantee shall be required to inquire as to the authorization, necessity, expediency or regularity of such pledge or as to the application of any proceeds with respect thereto by the Owner Trustee.

Section 10.04.  Limitations on Rights of Others.  

Nothing in this Agreement, whether express or implied (except for Section 7.04), shall be construed to give to any Person other than the Owner Trustee and the Certificateholders any legal or equitable right in the Trust Estate or under or in respect of this Agreement or any covenants, conditions or provisions contained herein.

Section 10.06.  Severability.  

Any provision of this Agreement which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

Section 10.07.  Separate Counterparts.

The Agreement permits the amendment thereof as specified below, provided that any amendment be accompanied by an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such amendment complies with the provisions of the Agreement and would not cause the Trust to be subject to an entity level tax.  If the purpose of the amendment is to correct any mistake, eliminate any inconsistency, cure any ambiguity or deal with any matter not covered, it shall not be necessary to obtain the consent of any Noteholder or the Indenture Trustee.  If the purpose of the amendment is to add or eliminate or change any provision of the Agreement, other than as specified in the preceding sentence, the amendment shall require the consent of the Holders of 662/3% of the Percentage Interests in each Class of Certificates, the consent of Noteholders evidencing more than 662/3% at the Outst anding Amount of the Notes and the Indenture Trustee; provided, however, that no such amendment shall (i) reduce in any manner the amount of, or delay the time of, payments received that are required to be distributed to any Certificateholder or Noteholder, or (ii) reduce the aforesaid percentage of Certificateholders and Noteholders which are required to consent to any such amendment, in the case of either clause (i) or (ii), without the consent of the holders of all the outstanding Notes and Certificates, as applicable.

As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the transfer of this Trust Certificate is registerable in the Certificate Register upon surrender of this Trust Certificate for registration of transfer at the offices or agencies of the Certificate Registrar maintained by the Trust in the State of New York, accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Certificate Registrar duly executed by the Holder hereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Trust Certificates of authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate interest in the Trust will be issued to the designated transferee.  The initial Certificate Registrar appointed under the Agreement is the Administrator.

Except as provided in the Agreement, the Trust Certificates are issuable only in a minimum Percentage Interest of 100%.  As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Trust Certificates are exchangeable for new Trust Certificates evidencing in the aggregate the Percentage Interest of the Trust Certificate surrendered in the exchange, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same.  No service charge will be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Owner Trustee or the Certificate Registrar may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge payable in connection therewith or any expense incurred thereby.

The Owner Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Certificate Paying Agent, the Administrator, the Certificate Registrar and any agent of the Owner Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Certificate Paying Agent, the Administrator and the Certificate Registrar may treat the Person in whose name this Trust Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Owner Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Certificate Paying Agent, the Administrator, the Certificate Registrar or any such agent shall be affected by any notice to the contrary.

[REVERSE OF CLASS X CERTIFICATE]

The Class X Certificates do not represent an obligation of, or an interest in, the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee, the Owner Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Bank or any Affiliates of any of them and no recourse may be had against any such parties or their assets, except as expressly set forth or contemplated herein or in the Agreement or the other Operative Agreements.  In addition, this Class X Certificate is not guaranteed by any governmental agency or instrumentality and is limited in right of payment to certain collections and recoveries with respect to the Collateral, all as more specifically set forth herein.  A copy of the Agreement may be examined by any Certificateholder upon written request during normal business hours at the principal office of the Depositor and at such other places, if any, designated by the Depositor.

The Agreement permits the amendment thereof as specified below, provided that any amendment be accompanied by an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such amendment complies with the provisions of the Agreement and would not cause the Trust to be subject to an entity level tax.  If the purpose of the amendment is to correct any mistake, eliminate any inconsistency, cure any ambiguity or deal with any matter not covered, it shall not be necessary to obtain the consent of any Noteholder or the Indenture Trustee.  If the purpose of the amendment is to add or eliminate or change any provision of the Agreement, other than as specified in the preceding sentence, the amendment shall require the consent of the Holders of 662/3% of the Percentage Interests in each Class of Certificates, the consent of Noteholders evidencing more than 662/3% at the Outst anding Amount of the Notes and the Indenture Trustee; provided, however, that no such amendment shall (i) reduce in any manner the amount of, or delay the time of, payments received that are required to be distributed to any Certificateholder or Noteholder, or (ii) reduce the aforesaid percentage of Certificateholders and Noteholders which are required to consent to any such amendment, in the case of either clause (i) or (ii), without the consent of the holders of all the outstanding Notes and Certificates, as applicable.

As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the transfer of this Class X Certificate is registerable in the Certificate Register upon surrender of this Class X Certificate for registration of transfer at the offices or agencies of the Certificate Registrar maintained by the Trust in the State of New York, accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Certificate Registrar duly executed by the Holder hereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Class X Certificates of authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate interest in the Trust will be issued to the designated transferee.  The initial Certificate Registrar appointed under the Agreement is the Administrator.

Except as provided in the Agreement, the Class X Certificates are issuable only in a minimum Percentage Interest of 100%.  As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Class X Certificates are exchangeable for new Class X Certificates evidencing in the aggregate the Percentage Interest of the Class X Certificate surrendered in the exchange, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same.  No service charge will be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Owner Trustee or the Certificate Registrar may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge payable in connection therewith or any expense incurred thereby.

The Owner Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Certificate Paying Agent, the Administrator, the Certificate Registrar and any agent of the Owner Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Certificate Paying Agent, the Administrator and the Certificate Registrar may treat the Person in whose name this Class X Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Owner Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Certificate Paying Agent, the Administrator, the Certificate Registrar or any such agent shall be affected by any notice to the contrary.

The obligations and responsibilities created by the Agreement and the Trust created thereby shall terminate upon the satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture pursuant to Section 4.01 thereof and the termination of the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

Re:

Ladies and Gentlemen:

In connection with our acquisition of Saxon Asset Securities Trust 2005-3 Certificates (the “Securities”), we certify that (a) we understand that the Security has not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), or any state securities laws and is being transferred to us in a transaction that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Act and any such laws, (b) we have such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that we are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of investments in the Security, (c) we have had the opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers from the Depositor concerning the purchase of the Security and all matters relating thereto or any additional information deemed necessary to our decision to purchase the Security, (d) we have not, nor has anyone acting on our behalf, offered, transferred, pledged, sold or otherwise disposed of the Security or any interest in the Security, or solicited any offer to buy, transfer, pledge or otherwise dispose of the Security or any interest in the Security from any person in any manner, or made any general solicitation by means of general advertising or in any other manner, or taken any other action that would constitute a distribution of the Security under the Act or that would render the disposition of the Security a violation of Section 5 of the Act or any state securities laws or require registration pursuant thereto, and we will not act, or authorize any person to act, in such manner with respect to the Security and (e) we are a “qualified institutional buyer” as that term is defined in Rule 144A under the Act (“Rule 144A”).  We are aware that the sale to us is being made in reliance on Rule 144A.

We are acquiring the Security for our own account or for resale pursuant to Rule 144A and understand that such Security may be resold, pledged or transferred only (1) to a person reasonably believed to be a qualified institutional buyer that purchases for its own account or for the account of a qualified institutional buyer to whom notice is given that the resale, pledge or transfer is being made in reliance on Rule 144A or (2) pursuant to another exemption from registration under the Act.
