The Indenture Trustee, by execution and delivery hereof, acknowledges receipt by it or by the Custodian on its behalf of the Mortgage Files pertaining to the Mortgage Loans listed on the Mortgage Loan Schedule, subject to review thereof by the Indenture Trustee, or by the Custodian on behalf of the Indenture Trustee, under this Section 2.02.  The Indenture Trustee, or the Custodian on behalf of the Indenture Trustee, will execute and deliver to the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Servicer (and the Indenture Trustee if delivered by the Custodian) on the Closing Date an Initial Certification in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit A-1.

(b)  Within 90 days after the Closing Date, the Indenture Trustee or the Custodian on behalf of the Indenture Trustee, will, for the benefit of Noteholders, review each Mortgage File to ascertain that all required documents set forth in Section 2.01 have been received and appear on their face to contain the requisite signatures by or on behalf of the respective parties thereto, and shall deliver to the Depositor, the Seller and the Issuer (and the Indenture Trustee if delivered by the Custodian) an Interim Certification in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit A-2 to the effect that, as to each Mortgage Loan listed in the Mortgage Loan Schedule (other than any Mortgage Loan prepaid in full or any specifically identified in such certification as not covered by such certification), (i) all of the applicable documents specified in Section 2.01(b) are in its possession and (ii) such d ocuments have been reviewed by it and appear to relate to such Mortgage Loan.  The Indenture Trustee, or the Custodian on behalf of the Indenture Trustee, shall determine whether such documents are executed and endorsed, but shall be under no duty or obligation to inspect, review or examine any such documents, instruments, certificates or other papers to determine that the same are valid, binding, legally effective, properly endorsed, genuine, enforceable or appropriate for the represented purpose or that they have actually been recorded or are in recordable form or that they are other than what they purport to be on their face. Neither the Indenture Trustee nor the Custodian shall have any responsibility for verifying the genuineness or the legal effectiveness of or authority for any signatures of or on behalf of any party or endorser or for the perfection or priority of any document.

(c)  If in the course of the review described in paragraph (b) above the Indenture Trustee discovers any document or documents constituting a part of a Mortgage File that is missing, does not appear regular on its face (i.e., is mutilated, damaged, defaced, torn or otherwise physically altered) or appears to be unrelated to the Mortgage Loans identified in the Mortgage Loan Schedule, as applicable (each, a “Material Defect”), the Indenture Trustee or the Custodian, discovering such Material Defect shall identify the Mortgage Loan to which such Material Defect relates in the Interim Certification delivered to the Depositor and the Master Servicer.  Within 90 days of its receipt of such notice, the Seller shall be required to cure such Material Defect (and, in such event, the Seller shall provide the Indenture Trustee and the Custodian with an Officer’s Certif icate confirming that such cure has been effected).  If the Seller does not so cure such Material Defect, if a loss has been incurred with respect to such Mortgage Loan that would, if such Mortgage Loan were not purchased from the Trust Estate, constitute a Realized Loss, and such loss is attributable to the failure of the Seller to cure such Material Defect, the Seller shall repurchase the related Mortgage Loan from the Trust Estate at the Purchase Price.  A loss shall be deemed to be attributable to the failure of the Seller to cure a Material Defect if, as determined by the Seller acting in good faith, absent such Material Defect, such loss would not have been incurred.  The Seller may, in lieu of repurchasing a Mortgage Loan pursuant to this Section 2.02, substitute for such Mortgage Loan a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan subject to the provisions of Section 3.03.  The failure of the Indenture Trustee or the Custodian to deliver the Interim Certification within 90 days after the C losing Date shall not affect or relieve the Seller of its obligation to repurchase any Mortgage Loan pursuant to this Section 2.02 or any other Section of this Agreement requiring the repurchase of Mortgage Loans from the Trust Estate.

(d)  Within 180 days following the Closing Date, the Indenture Trustee, or the Custodian, shall deliver to the Depositor, the Master Servicer and the Servicer (and the Indenture Trustee if delivered by the Custodian) a Final Certification substantially in the form attached as Exhibit A-3 evidencing the completeness of the Mortgage Files in its possession or control, with any exceptions noted thereto.

(e)  Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to constitute an assumption by the Trust Estate, the Indenture Trustee, the Custodian or the Noteholders of any unsatisfied duty, claim or other liability on any Mortgage Loan or to any Mortgagor.

Section 2.03.  Grant Clause.

(a)  It is intended that the conveyance by the Depositor to the Issuer of the Mortgage Loans, as provided for in Section 2.01 be construed as a sale by the Depositor to the Issuer of the Mortgage Loans and other assets in the Trust Estate for the benefit of the Noteholders.  Further, it is not intended that any such conveyance be deemed to be a pledge of the Mortgage Loans by the Depositor to the Issuer to secure a debt or other obligation of the Depositor.  However, in the event that the Mortgage Loans are held to be property of the Depositor or if for any reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create a security interest in the Mortgage Loans and other assets in the Trust Estate, then it is intended that (a) this Agreement shall also be deemed to be a security agreement within the meaning of Articles 8 and 9 of the New York UCC (or the Relevant UCC if not the New York UCC); (b) the conveyances provided for in Section 2.01 shall be deemed to be (1) a grant by the Depositor to the Issuer of a security interest in all of the Depositor’s right (including the power to convey title thereto), title and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to (A) the Mortgage Loans, including the Mortgage Notes, the Mortgages, any related insurance policies and all other documents in the related Mortgage Files, (B) all amounts payable pursuant to the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms thereof and (C) any and all general intangibles consisting of, arising from or relating to any of the foregoing, and all proceeds of the conversion, voluntary or involuntary, of the foregoing into cash, instruments, securities or other property, including without limitation all Liquidation Proceeds, all Insurance Proceeds, all amounts from time to time held or invested in the Collection Account, whether in the form of cash, instruments, securities or other property and (2) an assignment by the Depositor to the Issuer of any security interest in any and all of the Depositor’s right (including the power to convey title thereto), title and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to the property described in the foregoing clauses (1)(A) through (C); (c) the possession by the Indenture Trustee or any other agent of the Issuer of Mortgage Notes, and such other items of property as constitute instruments, money, negotiable documents or chattel paper shall be deemed to be “possession by the secured party,” or possession by a purchaser or a person designated by such secured party, for purposes of perfecting the security interest pursuant to the New York UCC and any other Relevant UCC (including, without limitation, Section 9-313, 8-313 or 8-321 thereof); and (d) notifications to persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from persons holding such property, shall be deemed notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, financial intermediaries, bailees or agents (as applicable) of the Issuer for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law.

(b)  The Depositor and, at the Depositor’s direction, the Issuer shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such reasonable actions as may be necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were deemed to create a security interest in the Mortgage Loans and the other property of the Trust Estate, such security interest would be deemed to be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of this Agreement.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Depositor shall prepare and file any UCC financing statements that are necessary to perfect the Indenture Trustee’s security interest in or lien on the Mortgage Loans, as evidenced by an Officer’s Certificate of the Depositor, and furnish a copy of each such filed financing statement to the Securities Administrator. The Indenture Trustee shall prepare and file, at the expense of the Issuer, all filings necessary to maintain the effectiveness of any original filings necessary under the Relevant UCC to perfect the Indenture Trustee’s security interest in or lien on the Mortgage Loans, including without limitation (x) continuation statements, and (y) to the extent that a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee has received written notice of such change or transfer, such other statements as may be occasioned by (1) any change of name of the Seller, the Depositor or the Issuer, (2) any change of location of the place of business or the chief executive office of the Seller or the Depositor or (3) any transfer of any interest of the Seller or the Depositor in any Mortgage Loan.

Neither the Depositor nor the Issuer shall organize under the law of any jurisdiction other than the State under which each is organized as of the Closing Date (whether changing its jurisdiction of organization or organizing under an additional jurisdiction) without giving thirty (30) days prior written notice of such action to its immediate and mediate transferee, including the Indenture Trustee.  Before effecting such change, each of the Depositor or the Issuer proposing to change its jurisdiction of organization shall prepare and file in the appropriate filing office any financing statements or other statements necessary to continue the perfection of the interests of its immediate and mediate transferees, including the Indenture Trustee, in the Mortgage Loans.  In connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Indenture, each of the Depositor and the Issuer author izes its immediate or mediate transferee to file in any filing office any initial financing statements, any amendments to financing statements, any continuation statements, or any other statements or filings described in this Section 2.03(b).

(c)  The Depositor shall not take any action inconsistent with the sale by the Depositor of all of its right, title and interest in and to the Trust Estate and shall indicate or shall cause to be indicated in its records and records held on its behalf that ownership of each Mortgage Loan and the other property of the Issuer is held by the Issuer.  In addition, the Depositor shall respond to any inquiries from third parties with respect to ownership of a Mortgage Loan or any other property of the Trust Estate by stating that it is not the owner of such Mortgage Loan and that ownership of such Mortgage Loan or other property of the Trust Estate is held by the Issuer on behalf of the Noteholders.

Section 2.04.  Option to Contribute Derivative Instrument

At any time on or after the Closing Date, the Seller shall have the right to contribute to, and deposit into, the Trust a derivative contract or comparable instrument (a “Derivative Instrument”).  The Derivative Instrument may have a notional amount in excess of the sum of the beneficial interests in the Trust.  Any such instrument shall constitute a fully prepaid agreement.  The Securities Administrator shall have no tax reporting duties with respect to any such Derivative Instrument.

Consistent with the terms of this Agreement, the Servicer may waive, modify or vary any term of any Mortgage Loan or consent to the postponement of any such term or in any manner grant indulgence to any Mortgagor if in the Servicer's reasonable and prudent determination such waiver, modification, postponement or indulgence is not materially adverse to the Issuer, Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders, provided, however, that unless the Servicer has obtained the prior written consent of the Master Servicer, the Servicer shall not permit any modification with respect to any Mortgage Loan that would change the Mortgage Rate, defer for more than ninety (90) days or forgive any payment of principal or interest, reduce or increase the outstanding principal balance (except for actual payments of principal) or change the final maturity date on such Mortgage Loan. In the event of any such modification which ha s been agreed to in writing by the Master Servicer and which permits the deferral of interest or principal payments on any Mortgage Loan, the Servicer shall, on the Business Day immediately preceding the Servicer Remittance Date in any month in which any such principal or interest payment has been deferred, deposit in the Custodial Account from its own funds, in accordance with Section 4.03(c), the difference between (a) such month's principal and one month's interest at the Net Mortgage Rate on the unpaid principal balance of such Mortgage Loan and (b) the amount paid by the Mortgagor. The Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement for such advances to the same extent as for all other advances pursuant to Section 4.03. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer shall continue, and is hereby authorized and empowered, to prepare, execute and deliver on behalf of itself, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release, di scharge and all other comparable instruments, with respect to the Mortgage Loans and with respect to the Mortgaged Properties.

(b)  Servicer Discretion.  In managing the liquidation of defaulted Mortgage Loans, the Servicer will have sole discretion, subject to the terms of this Agreement, to sell defaulted Mortgage Loans; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not take any action that is inconsistent with or prejudices the interests of the Noteholders in any Mortgage Loan or the rights and interests of the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders under this Agreement.

Foreclosure or comparable proceedings shall be initiated within ninety (90) days of default for Mortgaged Properties for which no satisfactory arrangements can be made for collection of delinquent payments, subject to state and federal law and regulation.  The Servicer shall use i ts best efforts to realize upon defaulted Mortgage Loans in such manner as will maximize the receipt of principal and interest by the Trust, taking into account, among other things, the timing of foreclosure proceedings. The Servicer, on behalf of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders, may also, in its discretion, as an alternative to foreclosure, sell defaulted Mortgage Loans at fair market value to third parties, if the Servicer reasonably believes that such sale would maximize proceeds to the Trust (on a present value basis) with respect to each such Mortgage Loan. The foregoing is subject to the provisions that, in any case in which a Mortgaged Property shall have suffered damage, the Servicer shall not be required to expend its own funds toward the restoration of such property unless it shall determine in its discretion (i) that such restoration will increase the proceeds of liquidation of the related Mortgage Loan to the Trust after reimbursement to itself for such expenses, and (ii) th at such expenses will be recoverable by the Servicer through Insurance Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds or Liquidation Proceeds from the related Mortgaged Property, as contemplated in Section 4.02(e).

The Servicer shall be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by it in any such proceedings or functions; provided, however, that it shall be entitled to reimbursement thereof from the related property, as contemplated in Section 4.02(e). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in connection with a foreclosure or acceptance of a deed in lieu of foreclosure, in the event the Servicer has reasonable cause to believe that a Mortgaged Pr operty is contaminated by hazardous or toxic substances or wastes, or if the Master Servicer or the Indenture Trustee otherwise requests an environmental inspection or review of such Mortgaged Property, such an inspection or review is to be conducted by a qualified inspector at the Master Servicer’s or Indenture Trustee’s expense, as applicable. Upon completion of the inspection, the Servicer shall promptly provide the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee with a written report of the environmental inspection. After reviewing the environmental inspection report, the Master Servicer shall determine how the Servicer shall proceed with respect to the Mortgaged Property.

Notwithstanding the generality of the preceding paragraph, the Servicer shall take such actions generally in accordance with the Servicer’s established default timeline and in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices with respect to each Mortgage Loan and Mortgagor for which there is a delinquency until such time as the related Mortgagor is current with all payments due under the Mortgage Loan.

(h)  Payment of Taxes, Insurance and Other Charges; Maintenance of Primary Mortgage Insurance Policies; Collections Thereunder.  

(i)         With respect to each Mortgage Loan, the Servicer shall maintain accurate records reflecting the status of ground rents, taxes, assessments, water rates and other charges which are or may become a lien upon the Mortgaged Property and the status of primary mortgage insurance premiums and fire and hazard insurance coverage and shall obtain, from time to time, all bills for the payment of such charges, including renewal premiums and shall effect payment thereof prior to the applicable penalty or termination date and at a time appropriate for securing maximum discounts allowable, employing for such purpose deposits of the Mortgagor in the Escrow Account which shall have been estimated and accumulated by the Servicer in amounts sufficient for such purposes, as allowed under the terms of the Mortgage or applicable law. To the extent that the Mortgage does not provide for Escrow Payments, the Servicer shall determine that any such payments are made by the Mortgagor at the time they first become due. The Servicer assumes full responsibility for the timely payment of all such bills and shall effect timely payments of all such bills irrespective of the Mortgagor's faithful performance in the payment of same or the making of the Escrow Payments and shall make advances from its own funds to effect such payments (which will constitute a Servicing Advance).

(ii)        The Servicer will maintain in full force and effect Primary Mortgage Insurance Policies or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policies issued by a Qualified Insurer with respect to each Mortgage Loan for which such coverage is herein required. Such coverage will be terminated only with the approval of Purchaser, or as required by applicable law or regulation. The Servicer will not cancel or refuse to renew any Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy in effect on the Closing Date that is required to be kept in force under this Agreement unless a replacement Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy for such canceled or nonrenewed policy is obtained from and maintained with a Qualified Insurer. The Servicer shall not take any action which would result in non-coverage under any applicable Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy of any loss which, but for the actions of the Servicer would have been covered thereunder. In connection with any assumption or substitution agreement entered into or to be entered into pursuant to Section 4.04(a), the Servicer shall promptly notify the insurer under the related Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy, if any, of such assumption or substitution of liability in accordance with the terms of such policy and shall take all actions which may be required by such insurer as a condition to the continuation of coverage under the Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy. If such Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy is terminated as a result of such assumption or substitution of liability, the Servicer shall obtain a replacement Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage I nsurance Policy as provided above.

In connection with its activities as servicer, the Servicer agrees to prepare and present, on behalf of itself and the Issuer, claims to the insurer under any Private Mortgage Insurance Policy in a timely fashion in accordance with the terms of such Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy and, in this regard, to take such action as shall be necessary to permit recovery under any Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy respecting a defaulted Mortgage Loan. Pursuant to Section 4.02(d), any amounts collected by the Servicer under any Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy shall be deposited in the Custodial Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 4.02(e).

(i)   Protection of Accounts.  The Servicer may transfer the Custodial Account or the Escrow Account to a different Eligible Institution from time to time.  Such transfer shall be made only upon obtaining the consent of the Master Servicer, which consent shall not be withheld unreasonably, and the Servicer shall give notice to the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee of any change in the location of the Custodial Account.

(j)   Maintenance of Hazard Insurance.  The Servicer shall cause to be maintained for each Mortgage Loan fire and hazard insurance with extended coverage as is acceptable to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac and customary in the area where the Mortgaged Property is located in an amount which is equal to the lesser of (i) the maximum insurable value of the improvements securing such Mortgage Loan or (ii) the greater of (a) the outstanding principal balance of the Mortgage Loan, and (b) an amount such that the proceeds thereof shall be sufficient to prevent the Mortgagor and/or the mortgagee from becoming a co-insurer. If required by the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended, each Mortgage Loan shall be covered by a flood insurance policy meeting the requirements of the current guidelines of the Federal Insurance Administration in effect with an insurance car rier acceptable to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, in an amount representing coverage not less than the least of (i) the outstanding principal balance of the Mortgage Loan, (ii) the maximum insurable value of the improvements securing such Mortgage Loan or (iii) the maximum amount of insurance which is available under the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended. If at any time during the term of the Mortgage Loan, the Servicer determines in accordance with applicable law and pursuant to the Fannie Mae Guides that a Mortgaged Property is located in a special flood hazard area and is not covered by flood insurance or is covered in an amount less than the amount required by the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended, the Servicer shall notify the related Mortgagor that the Mortgagor must obtain such flood insurance coverage, and if said Mortgagor fails to obtain the required flood insurance coverage within forty-five (45) days after such notification, the Servicer shall immediately force place t he required flood insurance on the Mortgagor's behalf. The Servicer shall also maintain on each REO Property, fire and hazard insurance with extended coverage in an amount which is at least equal to the maximum insurable value of the improvements which are a part of such property, and, to the extent required and available under the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended, flood insurance in an amount as provided above. Any amounts collected by the Servicer under any such policies other than amounts to be deposited in the Escrow Account and applied to the restoration or repair of the Mortgaged Property or REO Property, or released to the Mortgagor in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, shall be deposited in the Custodial Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 4.02(e). It is understood and agreed that no other additional insurance need be required by the Servicer of the Mortgagor or maintained on property acquired in respect of the Mortgage Loan, other than pursuant to this Agre ement, the Fannie Mae Guides or such applicable state or federal laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force and as shall require such additional insurance. All such policies shall be endorsed with standard mortgagee clauses with loss payable to the Servicer and its successors and/or assigns and shall provide for at least thirty (30) days prior written notice of any cancellation, reduction in the amount or material change in coverage to the Servicer. The Servicer shall not interfere with the Mortgagor's freedom of choice in selecting either his insurance carrier or agent, provided, however, that the Servicer shall not accept any such insurance policies from insurance companies unless such companies are Qualified Insurers.

(k)  Maintenance of Mortgage Impairment Insurance.  In the event that the Servicer shall obtain and maintain a blanket policy issued by an insurer acceptable to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac insuring against hazard losses on all of the Mortgage Loans, then, to the extent such policy provides coverage in an amount equal to the amount required pursuant to Section 4.02(j) and otherwise complies with all other requirements of Section 4.02(j), it shall conclusively be deemed to have satisfied its obligations as set forth in Section 4.02(j), it being understood and agreed that such policy may contain a deductible clause, in which case the Servicer shall, in the event that there shall not have been maintained on the related Mortgaged Property or REO Property a policy complying with Section 4.02(j), and there shall have been a loss which would have been covered by such policy, deposit in the Custodial Account the amount not otherwise payable under the blanket policy because of such deductible clause. In connection with its activities as servicer of the Mortgage Loans, the Servicer agrees to prepare and present, on behalf of the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee, claims under any such blanket policy in a timely fashion in accordance with the terms of such policy. Upon request of the Master Servicer or Indenture Trustee, the Servicer shall cause to be delivered to the Master Servicer or the Indenture Trustee, as applicable, a certified true copy of such policy and shall use its best efforts to obtain a statement from the insurer thereunder that such policy shall in no event be terminated or materially modified without thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee.

(l)    Maintenance of Fidelity Bond and Errors and Omissions Insurance.  The Servicer shall maintain, at its own expense, a blanket fidelity bond and an errors and omissions insurance policy, with broad coverage with responsible companies on all officers, employees or other persons acting in any capacity with regard to the Mortgage Loan to handle funds, money, documents and papers relating to the Mortgage Loan. The Servicer Fidelity Bond shall be in the form of the Mortgage Banker's Blanket Bond and shall protect and insure the Servicer against losses, including forgery, theft, embezzlement and fraud of such persons. The Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy shall protect and insure the Servicer against losses arising out of errors and omissions and negligent acts of such persons. Such Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy shall also prot ect and insure the Servicer against losses in connection with the failure to maintain any insurance policies required pursuant to this Agreement and the release or satisfaction of a Mortgage Loan without having obtained payment in full of the indebtedness secured thereby. No provision of this Section 4.02(l) requiring the Servicer Fidelity Bond or the Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy shall diminish or relieve the Servicer from its duties and obligations as set forth in this Agreement. The minimum coverage under any such bond and insurance policy shall be at least equal to the corresponding amounts required by Fannie Mae in the Fannie Mae Guides. Upon request of the Master Servicer or the Indenture Trustee, the Servicer shall deliver to the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee a certificate from the surety and the insurer as to the existence of the Servicer Fidelity Bond and the Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy and shall obtain a statement from the surety and the insurer that such Servicer Fidelity Bond or Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy shall in no event be terminated or materially modified without thirty (30) days prior written notice to the Master Servicer. The Servicer shall notify the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee within five (5) business days of receipt of notice that such Servicer Fidelity Bond or Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy will be, or has been, materially modified or terminated. The Issuer must be named as a loss payee on the Servicer Fidelity Bond and as an additional insured on the Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy. Upon request by the Master Servicer, the Servicer shall provide the Master Servicer with an insurance certificate certifying coverage under this Section 4.02(l), and will provide an update to such certificate upon request, or upon renewal or material modification of coverage.

(m)  Inspections.  The Servicer shall inspect the Mortgaged Property as often as deemed necessary by the Servicer to assure itself that the value of the Mortgaged Property is being preserved.  In addition, the Servicer shall inspect the Mortgaged Property and/or take such other actions as may be necessary or appropriate in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices or as may be required by the primary mortgage guaranty insurer.  The Servicer shall keep a written report of each such inspection.

(n)   Restoration of Mortgaged Property.  The Servicer need not obtain the approval of the Master Servicer prior to releasing any Insurance Proceeds or Condemnation Proceeds to the Mortgagor to be applied to the restoration or repair of the Mortgaged Property if such release is in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices.  At a minimum, the Servicer shall comply with the following conditions in connection with any such release of Insurance Proceeds or Condemnation Proceeds:

(i)         the Servicer shall receive satisfactory independent verification of completion of repairs and issuance of any required approvals with respect thereto;

(ii)        the Servicer shall take all steps necessary to preserve the priority of the lien of the Mortgage, including, but not limited to requiring waivers with respect to mechanics’ and materialmen’s liens; and

(iii)      pending repairs or restoration, the Servicer shall place the Insurance Proceeds or Condemnation Proceeds in the Escrow Account.

(o)  Title, Management and Disposition of REO Property.  In the event that title to the Mortgaged Property is acquired in foreclosure or by deed in lieu of foreclosure, the deed or certificate of sale shall be taken in the name of the Indenture Trustee or its designee, or in the event the Indenture Trustee or its designee is not authorized or permitted to hold title to real property in the state where the REO Property is located, or would be adversely affected under the “doing business” or tax laws of such state by so holding title, the deed or certificate of sale shall be taken in the name of such Person or Persons as shall be consistent with an Opinion of Counsel obtained by the Servicer from an attorney duly licensed to practice law in the state where the REO Property is located. Any Person or Persons holding such title other than the Issuer shall ackno wledge in writing that such title is being held as nominee for the benefit of the Issuer.

The Servicer shall notify the Master Servicer in accordance with the Fannie Mae Guides of each acquisition of REO Property upon such acquisition (and, in any event, shall provide notice of the consummation of any foreclosure sale within three (3) Business Days from the date the Servicer receives notice of such consummation), together with a copy of the drive by appraisal or brokers price opinion of the Mortgaged Property obtained in connection with such acquisition, and thereafter assume the responsibility for marketing such REO property in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices. Thereafter, the Servicer shall continue to provide certain administrative services to the Master Servicer relating to such REO Property as set forth in this Section 4.02(o). No Servicing Fee shall be assessed or otherwise accrue on any REO Property from and after the date on which it becomes an REO Property.

The Servicer shall, either itself or through an agent selected by the Servicer, and in accordance with the Fannie Mae Guides manage, conserve, protect and operate each REO Property in the same manner that it manages, conserves, protects and operates other foreclosed property for its own account, and in the same manner that similar property in the same locality as the REO Property is managed. The Servicer shall cause each REO Property to be inspected promptly upon the acquisition of title thereto and shall cause each REO Property to be inspected at least monthly thereafter or more frequently as required by the circumstances. The Servicer shall make or cause to be made a written report of each such inspection.

The Servicer shall use its best efforts to dispose of the REO Property as soon as possible and shall sell such REO Property in any event within one year after title has been taken to such REO Property, unless the Servicer determines, and gives an appropriate notice to the Master Servicer to such effect, that a longer period is necessary for the orderly liquidation of such REO Property. If a longer period than one (1) year is permitted under the foregoing sentence and is necessary to sell any REO Property, the Servicer shall report monthly to the Master Servicer as to the progress being made in selling such REO Property. No REO Property shall be marketed for less than the Appraised Value, without the prior consent of Master Servicer. No REO Property shall be sold for less than ninety five percent (95%) of its Appraised Value, without the prior consent of Indenture Trustee. All requests for reimbursemen t of Servicing Advances shall be in accordance with the Fannie Mae Guides. The disposition of REO Property shall be carried out by the Servicer at such price, and upon such terms and conditions, as the Servicer deems to be in the best interests of the Trust (subject to the above conditions) only with the prior written consent of the Master Servicer. The Servicer shall provide monthly reports to the Master Servicer in reference to the status of the marketing of the REO Properties.

(p)  Compliance with Safeguarding Customer Information Requirements.  The Servicer has implemented and will maintain security measures designed to meet the objectives of the Interagency Guidelines Establishing Standards for Safeguarding Customer Information published in final form on February 1, 2001, 66 Fed.

(r)  Purchase of Defaulted Mortgage Loans.  The Servicer, in its sole discretion, shall have the right to elect (by written notice sent to the Indenture Trustee, the Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator) to purchase for its own account from the Trust Estate any Mortgage Loan that is (as of the first day of a calendar quarter) 90 days or more Delinquent or is an REO Property at a price equal to the Purchase Price; provided, however, that (i) such Mortgage Loan is still 90 days or more delinquent or is an REO Property as of the date of such purchase and (ii) this purchase option, if not theretofore exercised, shall terminate on the date prior to the last day of the related calendar quarter.  This purchase option, if not exercised, shall not be thereafter reinstated unless the delinquency is cured and the Mortgage Loan thereafter again becomes 9 0 days or more delinquent or becomes an REO Property, in which case the option shall again become exercisable as of the first day of the related calendar quarter.  The principal portion of the funds in respect of such purchase of a Mortgage Loan will be considered a Principal Prepayment and the Purchase Price shall be deposited in the Collection Account.  Upon receipt by the Securities Administrator of the full amount of the Purchase Price for such Mortgage Loan and notification thereof has been made to the Indenture Trustee, the Indenture Trustee shall release or cause to be released and reassign to the Servicer the related Mortgage File for such Mortgage Loan and shall execute and deliver such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, representation or warranty, as shall be necessary to vest in such party or its designee or assignee title to any such Mortgage Loan released pursuant hereto, free and clear of all security interests, liens and other encumbrances created b y this Agreement and the Indenture, which instruments shall be prepared by the Servicer and the Indenture Trustee shall have no further responsibility with respect to the Mortgage File relating to such 90 days Delinquent Mortgage Loan purchased by the Servicer.

Such interest shall cover the period commencing with the day following the Business Day such payment was due and ending with the Business Day on which such payment is made to the Master Servicer, both inclusive.

(a)  Transfers of Mortgaged Property.  The Servicer will, to the extent it has actual knowledge of any conveyance or prospective conveyance by any Mortgagor of the Mortgaged Property (whether by absolute conveyance or by contract of sale, and whether or not the Mortgagor remains or is to remain liable under the Mortgage Note and/or the Mortgage), exercise its rights to accelerate the maturity of such Mortgage Loan under any “due-on-sale” clause to the extent permitted by law; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not exercise any such rights if prohibited by law or the terms of the Mortgage Note from doing so or if the exercise of such rights would impair or threaten to impair any recovery under the related Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy or Lender Primary Mortgage Insurance Policy, if any. If the Servicer reasonably believes it is unable under appl icable law to enforce such “due-on- sale” clause, the Servicer will enter into an assumption agreement with the person to whom the Mortgaged Property has been conveyed or is proposed to be conveyed, pursuant to which such person becomes liable under the Mortgage Note and, to the extent permitted by applicable state law, the Mortgagor remains liable thereon. Where an assumption is allowed pursuant to this Section 4.04(a), the Servicer, with the prior consent of the Master Servicer, the Indenture Trustee and the primary mortgage insurer, if any, is authorized to enter into a substitution of liability agreement with the person to whom the Mortgaged Property has been conveyed or is proposed to be conveyed pursuant to which the original mortgagor is released from liability and such Person is substituted as mortgagor and becomes liable under the related Mortgage Note. Any such substitution of liability agreement shall be in lieu of an assumption agreement.

In connection with any such assumption or substitution of liability, the Servicer shall follow the underwriting practices and procedures of the Servicer. With respect to an assumption or substitution of liability, the Mortgage Rate borne by the related Mortgage Note, the amount of the Monthly Payment and the maturity date may not be changed (except pursuant to the terms of the Mortgage Note). If the credit of the proposed transferee does not meet such underwriting criteria, the Servicer diligently shall, to the extent permitted by the Mortgage or the Mortgage Note and by applicable law, accelerate the maturity of the Mortgage Loan. The Servicer shall notify the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee that any such substitution of liability or assumption agreement has been completed and shall forward to the Custodian the original of any such substitution of liability or assumption agreement, which do cument shall be added to the related Mortgage File and shall, for all purposes, be considered a part of such Mortgage File to the same extent as all other documents and instruments constituting a part thereof. All fees collected by the Servicer for entering into an assumption or substitution of liability agreement shall belong to the Servicer.

Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraphs of this Section or any other provision of this Agreement, the Servicer shall not be deemed to be in default, breach or any other violation of its obligations hereunder by reason of any assumption of a Mortgage Loan by operation of law or any assumption which the Servicer may be restricted by law from preventing, for any reason whatsoever. For purposes of this Section 4.04(a), the term "assumption" is deemed to also include a sale of the Mortgaged Property subject to the Mortgage that is not accompanied by an assumption or substitution of liability agreement.

(b)  Satisfaction of Mortgages and Release of Mortgage Files.  Upon the payment in full of any Mortgage Loan, or the receipt by the Servicer of a notification that payment in full will be escrowed in a manner customary for such purposes, the Servicer shall immediately notify the Master Servicer by a certification of a Servicing Officer, which certification shall include a statement to the effect that all amounts received or to be received in connection with such payment which are required to be deposited in the Custodial Account pursuant to Section 4.02(d) have been or will be so deposited, and the Servicer shall request delivery to it of the portion of the Mortgage File held by the Custodian in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.12.

In the event the Servicer satisfies or releases a Mortgage without having obtained payment in full of the indebtedness secured by the Mortgage or should it otherwise prejudice any right the Trust may have under the mortgage instruments, the Servicer, upon written demand, shall remit within two (2) Business Days to the Trust the then outstanding principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan by deposit thereof in the Custodial Account. The Servicer shall maintain the Servicer Fidelity Bond and the Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy insuring the Servicer against any loss it may sustain with respect to any Mortgage Loan not satisfied in accordance with the procedures set forth herein.

(c)  Servicing Compensation.  As compensation for its services hereunder, the Servicer shall be entitled to withdraw from the Custodial Account (to the extent of interest payments collected on the Mortgage Loans) or to retain from interest payments collected on the Mortgage Loans, the Servicing Fee, subject to Compensating Interest Payments.  Additional servicing compensation in the form of assumption fees, as provided in Section 4.04(a), and late payment charges or otherwise shall be retained by the Servicer to the extent not required to be deposited in the Custodial Account. No Servicing Fee shall be payable in connection with partial Monthly Payments. The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its servicing activities hereunder and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor except as specifically provided for in this Agreement.

(d)  Annual Audit Report.  On or before February 28th of each year beginning February 28, 2006, the Servicer at its expense shall cause a firm of independent public accountants which is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants to furnish a statement to the Seller, the Master Servicer, the Indenture Trustee and the Depositor in a form acceptable for filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an exhibit to a Form 10-K to the effect that such firm has examined certain documents and records relating to the Servicer's servicing of mortgage loans of the same type as the Mortgage Loans pursuant to servicing agreements substantially similar to this Agreement, which agreements may include this Agreement, and that, on the basis of such an examination, conducted substantially in the Uniform Single Audit Program for Mortgage Banke rs, such firm is of the opinion that the Servicer's servicing has been conducted in compliance with the agreements examined pursuant to this Section 4.04(d), except for (i) such exceptions as such firm shall believe to be immaterial, and (ii) such other exceptions as shall be set forth in such statement. In addition, on an annual basis, Servicer shall provided the Seller, the Master Servicer, the Indenture Trustee and the Depositor with copies of its audited financial statements.

(e)  Annual Compliance Certifications.

(i)         On or before February 28th of each year beginning February 28, 2006, the Servicer shall deliver to the Seller, the Master Servicer, the Indenture Trustee and the Depositor a servicer’s certificate stating, as to each signer thereof, that (i) a review of the activities of the Servicer during such preceding fiscal year and of performance under this Agreement has been made under such officers’ supervision, and (ii) to the best of such officers’ knowledge, based on such review, the Servicer has fulfilled all its obligations under this Agreement for such year, or, if there has been a default in the fulfillment of any such obligation, specifying each such default known to such officers and the nature and status thereof, including the steps being taken by the Servicer to remedy such default.

(ii)        For so long as a certificate under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, as amended is required to be delivered on behalf of the Trust, a Servicing Officer shall execute and deliver on or prior to February 28th of each applicable year, commencing in 2006, or at any other time upon thirty (30) days written request, an Officer’s Certificate to the Depositor for the benefit of the Depositor and its officers, directors and affiliates, certifying as to the following matters:

(1)      Based on my knowledge, the information in the Annual Statement of Compliance, the Annual Independent Public Accountant's Servicing Report and all servicing reports, officer's certificates and other information relating to the servicing of the Mortgage Loans submitted to the Master Servicer taken as a whole, does not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which such statements were made, not misleading as of the date of this certification;

(2)      The servicing information required to be provided to the Master Servicer by the Servicer under this Agreement has been provided to the Master Servicer;

(3)      I am responsible for reviewing the activities performed by the Servicer under the Agreement and based upon the review required by this Agreement, and except as disclosed in the Annual Statement of Compliance or the Annual Independent Public Accountant's Servicing Report submitted to the Master Servicer, the Servicer has, as of the date of this certification fulfilled its obligations under this Agreement; and

(4)      I have disclosed to the Master Servicer all significant deficiencies relating to the Servicer's compliance with the minimum servicing standards in accordance with a review conducted in compliance with the Uniform Single Attestation Program for Mortgage Bankers or similar standard as set forth in the Agreement.

(iii)      The Servicer shall indemnify and hold harmless the Issuer, the Depositor and the Master Servicer and their respective officers, directors, agents and affiliates from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon a breach by the Servicer or any of its officers, directors, agents or affiliates of its obligations under this Section 4.04(e) for the negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of the Servicer in connection therewith.  If the indemnification provided for herein is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless  any of the foregoing parties, then the Servicer agrees that it shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the indemnified party or parties as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabi lities of the indemnified party or parties in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnified party or parties on the one hand and the Servicer on the other in connection with a breach of the Servicer’s obligations under this Section 4.04(e) or the Servicer’s negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in connection therewith.

Section 4.05.  Representations, Warranties and Agreements.

(a)  Representations, Warranties and Agreements of the Servicer.  The Servicer, as a condition to the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, hereby makes the following representations and warranties to the Master Servicer, the Depositor, the Seller, the Indenture Trustee and the Securities Administrator, as of the Closing Date:

(iv)       Ability to Perform.  The Servicer does not believe, nor does it have any reason or cause to believe, that it cannot perform each and every covenant contained in this Agreement;

(v)        No Litigation Pending.  There is no litigation, suit, proceeding or investigation pending or, to the best of the Servicer’s knowledge, threatened, or any order or decree outstanding, with respect to the Servicer which, either in any one instance or in the aggregate, is reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the sale of the Mortgage Loans, the execution, delivery, performance or enforceability of this Agreement, or which is reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the financial condition of the Servicer;

(vi)       No Consent Required.  No consent, approval, authorization or order of any court or governmental agency or body is required for the execution, delivery and performance by the Servicer of or compliance by the Servicer with this Agreement, or if required, such approval has been obtained prior to the Closing Date;

The Servicer is duly qualified, licensed, registered and otherwise authorized under all applicable federal, state and local laws, and regulations, if applicable, and is in good standing to sell mortgage loans to and service mortgage loans for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and no event has occurred which would make Servicer unable to comply with eligibility requirements or which would require notification to either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac;

(x)        No Commissions to Third Parties.  The Servicer has not dealt with any broker or agent or anyone else who might be entitled to a fee or commission in connection with this transaction other than the Seller.

(b)  Remedies for Breach of Representations and Warranties of the Servicer.  It is understood and agreed that the representations and warranties set forth in Sections 4.05(a) shall survive the engagement of the Servicer to perform the servicing responsibilities as of the Closing Date hereunder and the delivery of the Servicing Files to the Servicer and shall inure to the benefit of the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee.  Upon discovery by either the Servicer, the Master Servicer or the Indenture Trustee of a breach of any of the foregoing representations and warranties which materially and adversely affects the ability of the Servicer to perform its duties and obligations under this Agreement or otherwise materially and adversely affects the value of the Mortgage Loans, the Mortgaged Property or the priority of the security interest on such Mortgaged Pr operty or the interests of the Master Servicer or the Indenture Trustee, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice to the other parties.

Within sixty (60) days of the earlier of either discovery by or notice to the Servicer of any breach of a representation or warranty set forth in Section 4.05(a) which materially and adversely affects the ability of the Servicer to perform its duties and obligations under this Agreement or otherwise materially and adversely affects the value of the Mortgage Loans, the Mortgaged Property or the priority of the security interest on such Mortgaged Property, the Servicer shall use its best efforts promptly to cure such breach in all material respects and, if such breach cannot be cured, the Servicer shall, at the Master Servicer’s option, assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement (or respecting the affected Mortgage Loans) to a successor servicer.

In addition, the Servicer shall indemnify all other parties to this Agreement and hold each of them harmless against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments, and other costs and expenses resulting from any claim, demand, defense or assertion based on or grounded upon, or resulting from, a breach of the Servicer’s representations and warranties contained in Section 4.05(a).

Any cause of action against the Servicer relating to or arising out of the breach of any representations and warranties made in Section 4.05(a) shall accrue upon (i) discovery of such breach by the Servicer or notice thereof by the Master Servicer or the Indenture Trustee to the Servicer, (ii) failure by the Servicer to cure such breach within the applicable cure period, and (iii) demand upon the Servicer by the Master Servicer or the Indenture Trustee for compliance with this Agreement.

(c)        Additional Indemnification by the Servicer.  The Servicer shall indemnify the Master Servicer, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, and the Securities Administrator and hold each of them harmless against any and all claims, losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments, and any other costs, fees and expenses (collectively, the “Liabilities”) that the indemnified party may sustain in any way related to the failure of the Servicer to perform its duties and service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. The Servicer shall immediately notify the Master Servicer, the Indenture Trustee and the Securities Administrator if a claim is made by a third party with respect to this Agreement or the Mortgage Loans that may result in such Liabilities, and the Servicer shall assume (with the prior written consent of the indemnified party) the defense of any such claim and pay all expenses in connection therewith, including counsel fees, promptly pay, discharge and satisfy any judgment or decree which may be entered against it or any indemnified party in respect of such claim and follow any written instructions received from such indemnified party in connection with such claim.  The Servicer shall be reimbursed promptly from the Custodial Account for all amounts advanced by it pursuant to the preceding sentence except when the claim is in any way related to the Servicer’s indemnification pursuant to this Section 4.05(c), the failure of the Servicer to service and administer the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the breach of a representation or warranty set forth in Section 4.05(a) or the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of the Servicer.

Section 4.06.  The Servicer.

(a)  Merger or Consolidation of the Servicer.  The Servicer shall keep in full effect its existence, rights and franchises as a corporation under the laws of the state of its incorporation except as permitted herein, and shall obtain and preserve its qualification to do business as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction in which such qualification is or shall be necessary to protect the validity and enforceability of this Agreement, or any of the Mortgage Loans and to perform its duties under this Agreement.

Any Person into which the Servicer may be merged or consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Servicer shall be a party, or any Person succeeding to the business of the Servicer whether or not related to loan servicing, shall be the successor of the Servicer hereunder, without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding; provided, however, that the successor or surviving Person, or the parent company of such successor or surviving Person, shall be an institution (i) having a generally accepted accounting principals (“GAAP”)  net worth not less than $25,000,000, (ii) which is a HUD-approved mortgagee whose primary business is in origination and servicing of residential mortgage loans, and (iii) who is a Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac approved seller/servicer in good standing; provided, however, that if such successor or surviving Person does not have a GAAP net worth of at least $25,000,000, the parent company of such successor or surviving Person shall act as guarantor with respect to such successor's obligations under this Agreement.

(b)  Limitation on Liability of the Servicer and Others.  Neither the Servicer nor any of the directors, officers, employees or agents of the Servicer shall be under any liability to the Master Servicer, the Depositor, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or the Securities Administrator for any action taken or for refraining from the taking of any action in good faith pursuant to this Agreement, or for errors in judgment; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect the Servicer or any such person against any breach of warranties or representations made herein, or failure to perform its obligations in strict compliance with any standard of care set forth in this Agreement, or any liability which would otherwise be imposed by reason of any breach of the terms and conditions of this Agreement (except to the extent otherwise covered by Section 4.05(c)).  The Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Servicer may rely in good faith on any document of any kind prima facie properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder.  The Servicer shall not be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute or defend any legal action which is not incidental to its duties to service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with this Agreement and which in its opinion may involve it in any expense or liability; provided, however, that the Servicer may undertake any such action which it may deem necessary or desirable in respect of this Agreement and the rights and duties of the parties hereto.  In such event, the Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement from the Custodial Account for the reasonable legal expenses and costs of such action.  

The Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Servicer shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Trust against any and all Liabilities incurred in connection with any legal action relating to this Agreement or the Notes, except to the extent such Liabilities resulted from or arose out of the negligence, bad faith or willful misfeasance in the performance of the Servicer’s (or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Servicer) duties hereunder or by reason of its reckless disregard of its obligations and duties hereunder.

(c)  Limitation on Resignation and Assignment by the Servicer.  The Servicer shall not assign this Agreement or resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it except by mutual consent of the Servicer and the Master Servicer or upon the determination that its duties hereunder are no longer permissible under applicable law and such incapacity cannot be cured by the Servicer. Any such determination permitting the resignation of the Servicer shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect delivered to the Seller, the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee, which Opinion of Counsel shall be in form and substance acceptable to each of them. No such resignation shall become effective until a successor shall have assumed the Servicer's responsibilities and obligations hereunder in the manner provided in Section 4.08.

With respect to the retention of the Servicer to service the Mortgage Loans hereunder, the Servicer acknowledges that the Seller, Master Servicer and Indenture Trustee have acted in reliance upon the Servicer's independent status, the adequacy of its servicing facilities, plan, personnel, records and procedures, its integrity, reputation and financial standing and the continuance thereof. Without in any way limiting the generality of this Section, the Servicer shall not either assign this Agreement or the servicing hereunder or delegate its rights or duties hereunder or any portion thereof, or sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its property or assets, other than in the normal course of business, without the prior written approval of the Seller, the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld; provided that the Servicer may as sign the Agreement and the servicing hereunder without the consent of the Seller, the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee to an affiliate of the Servicer to which all servicing of the Servicer is assigned so long as (i) such affiliate is a Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac approved servicer and (ii) if it is intended that such affiliate be spun off to the shareholders of the Servicer, such affiliate has a GAAP net worth of at least $25,000,000 and (iii) such affiliate shall deliver to the Seller, the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee a certification pursuant to which such affiliate shall agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement and shall certify that such affiliate is a Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac approved servicer in good standing.

Without in any way limiting the generality of this Section 4.06(c), in the event that the Servicer shall assign this Agreement or the servicing responsibilities hereunder or delegate its duties hereunder or any portion thereof without (i) satisfying the requirements set forth herein or (ii) the prior written consent of the then such parties shall have the right to terminate this Agreement, without any payment of any penalty or damages and without any liability whatsoever to the Servicer (other than with respect to accrued but unpaid Servicing Fees and Servicing Advances remaining unpaid) or any third party. Nothing in this Section shall restrict the right of the Servicer to cause the Mortgage Loans to be subserviced as provided in this Agreement.

(d)  Successor Servicers.  The provisions of Sections 4.06(a), (b) and (c) shall apply to any successor to the Servicer hereunder.

Section 4.07.  Termination for Cause.  

Any of the following occurrences shall constitute an event of default (each, a “Servicer Event of Default”) on the part of the Servicer:

(i)         any failure by the Servicer to remit to the Master Servicer any payment required to be made under the terms of this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of one (1) Business Day; or

(ii)        failure by the Servicer duly to observe or perform in any material respect any other of the covenants or agreements on the part of the Servicer set forth in this Agreement (other than Sections 4.04(d) and 4.04(e)) which continues unremedied for a period of thirty (30) days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to the Servicer by the Master Servicer and the remedial period provided for herein has expired; or

(iii)      the Servicer ceases to be qualified to transact business in any jurisdiction where it is currently so qualified, but only to the extent such non-qualification materially and adversely affects the Servicer's ability to perform its obligations hereunder; or

(iv)       a decree or order of a court or agency or supervisory authority having jurisdiction for the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, readjustment of debt, including bankruptcy, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings, or for the winding-up or liquidation of its affairs, shall have been entered against the Servicer and such decree or order shall have remained in force undischarged or unstayed for a period of sixty (60) days; or

(v)        the Servicer shall consent to the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings of or relating to the Servicer or of or relating to all or substantially all of its property; or

(vi)       the Servicer shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts as they become due, file a petition to take advantage of any applicable insolvency or reorganization statute, make an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, voluntarily suspend payment of its obligations; or

(vii)      the Servicer ceases to be approved by either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac as a mortgage loan seller or servicer for more than thirty (30) days; or

(viii)    the Servicer attempts to assign its right to servicing compensation hereunder or the Servicer attempts, without the consent of the Master Servicer, to sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its property or assets or to assign this Agreement or the servicing responsibilities hereunder or to delegate its duties hereunder or any portion thereof; or

(ix)       the Servicer fails to meet the eligibility criteria set forth in the last sentence of Section 4.06(a); or

(x)        failure by the Servicer to duly perform, within the required time period, its obligations under Sections 4.04(d) or 4.04(e) which failure continues unremedied for a period of fifteen (15) days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to the Servicer by the Master Servicer.

Then, and in each and every such case, so long as an Event of Default shall not have been remedied, the Master Servicer, by notice in writing to the Servicer, in addition to whatever rights the Master Servicer may have under Sections 3.03 and 4.05(c) and at law or equity or to damages, including injunctive relief and specific performance, may, and shall, if so directed by the Majority Noteholders, terminate all the rights and obligations of the Servicer under this Agreement and in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof without compensating the Servicer for the same. On or after the receipt by the Servicer of such written notice, all authority and power of the Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Mortgage Loans or otherwise, shall pass to and be vested in the successor appointed pursuant to Section 4.08. Upon written request from the Master Servicer, the Servicer shall prepare, execute and deliver, any and all documents and other instruments, place in such successor's possession all Mortgage Files, and do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such notice of termination, whether to complete the transfer and endorsement or assignment of the Mortgage Loans and related documents, or otherwise, at the Servicer's sole expense. The Servicer agrees to cooperate with the Master Servicer and such successor in effecting the termination of the Servicer's responsibilities and rights hereunder, including, without limitation, the transfer to such successor for administration by it of all cash amounts which shall at the time be credited by the Servicer to the Custodial Account or Escrow Account or thereafter received with respect to the Mortgage Loans or any REO Property.

By a written notice, the Master Servicer may waive any default by the Servicer in the performance of its obligations hereunder and its consequences.  Upon any waiver of a past default, such default shall cease to exist, and any Event of Default arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been remedied for every purpose of this Agreement.  No such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other default or impair any right consequent thereon except to the extent expressly so waived.

Section 4.08.  Successor to Servicer.  Prior to termination of the Servicer's responsibilities and duties under this Agreement pursuant to Sections 4.06(c), 4.07 and 5.10, the Master Servicer shall (i) succeed to and assume all of the Servicer's responsibilities, rights, duties and obligations under this Agreement, or (ii) appoint a successor having the characteristics set forth in Section 4.06(a) hereof acceptable to the Rating Agencies, as evidenced by a letter from each Rating Agency to the effect that such an appointment will not result in a qualification, withdrawal or downgrade of the then current rating of any of the Notes, and which shall succeed to all rights and assume all of the responsibilities, duties and liabilities of the Servicer under this Agreement prior to the termination of the Servicer's responsibilities, duties and liabilities under th is Agreement. In connection with such appointment and assumption, the Master Servicer may make such arrangements for the compensation of such successor out of payments on Mortgage Loans as the Master Servicer and such successor shall agree. In the event that the Servicer's duties, responsibilities and liabilities under this Agreement should be terminated pursuant to the aforementioned Sections, the Servicer shall discharge such duties and responsibilities during the period from the date it acquires knowledge of such termination until the effective date thereof with the same degree of diligence and prudence which it is obligated to exercise under this Agreement, and shall take no action whatsoever that might impair or prejudice the rights or financial condition of its successor. The resignation or removal of the Servicer pursuant to the aforementioned Sections shall not become effective until a successor shall be appointed pursuant to this Section and shall in no event relieve the Servicer of the representati ons and warranties made pursuant to Section 4.05(a) and the remedies available to the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee under Sections 4.05(b) and 4.05(c), it being understood and agreed that the provisions of such Sections 4.05(a), 4.05(b) and 4.05(c) shall be applicable to the Servicer notwithstanding any such resignation or termination of the Servicer, or the termination of this Agreement.

Any successor appointed as provided herein shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Servicer and to the Master Servicer an instrument accepting such appointment, whereupon such successor shall become fully vested with all the rights, powers, duties, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities of the Servicer, with like effect as if originally named as a party to this Agreement. Any termination or resignation of the Servicer or this Agreement pursuant to Section 4.06(c), 4.07 or 5.10 shall not affect any claims that the Master Servicer may have against the Servicer arising prior to any such termination or resignation.

The Servicer shall promptly deliver to the successor the funds in the Custodial Account and the Escrow Account and the Mortgage Files and related documents and statements held by it hereunder and the Servicer shall account for all funds. The Servicer shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things all as may reasonably be required to more fully and definitely vest and confirm in the successor all such rights, powers, duties, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities of the Servicer. Within ten (10) Business Days of the execution and delivery of such instruments, the successor shall reimburse the Servicer for unrecovered Servicing Advances which the successor retains hereunder and which would otherwise have been recovered by the Servicer pursuant to this Agreement but for the appointment of the successor servicer.

Upon a successor's acceptance of appointment as such, the Servicer shall notify by mail the Indenture Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Seller and the Depositor of such appointment.

Section 4.09.  Subservicers and Subservicing Agreements.

(a)  The Mortgage Loans may be subserviced by a subservicer on behalf of the Servicer provided that the subservicer is an entity that engages in the business of servicing loans, and in either case shall be authorized to transact business, and licensed to service mortgage loans, in the state or states where the related Mortgaged Properties it is to service are situated, if and to the extent required by applicable law to enable the subservicer to perform its obligations hereunder and under the related subservicing Agreement, and in either case shall be a Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae approved mortgage servicer in good standing, and no event has occurred, including but not limited to a change in insurance coverage, which would make it unable to comply with the eligibility requirements for lenders imposed by Fannie Mae or for seller/servicers imposed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac , or which would require notification to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.  In addition, each Subservicer will obtain and preserve its qualifications to do business as a foreign corporation and its licenses to service mortgage loans, in each jurisdiction in which such qualifications and/or licenses are or shall be necessary to protect the validity and enforceability of this Agreement, or any of the Mortgage Loans and to perform or cause to be performed its duties under the related subservicing Agreement.  The Servicer may perform any of its servicing responsibilities hereunder or may cause the subservicer to perform any such servicing responsibilities on its behalf, but the use by the Servicer of the subservicer shall not release the Servicer from any of its obligations hereunder and the Servicer shall remain responsible hereunder for all acts and omissions of the subservicer as fully as if such acts and omissions were those of the Servicer. The Servicer shall pay all fees and expenses of the subservicer from its own funds, and the subservicer's fee shall not exceed the Servicing Fee.  Servicer shall notify the master Servicer promptly in writing upon the appointment of any subservicer.  

(b)  At the cost and expense of the Servicer, without any right of reimbursement from the Custodial Account, the Servicer shall be entitled to terminate the rights and responsibilities of the subservicer and arrange for any servicing responsibilities to be performed by a successor subservicer meeting the requirements in the preceding paragraph, provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be deemed to prevent or prohibit the Servicer, at the Servicer’s option, from electing to service the Mortgage Loans itself.  In the event that the Servicer’s responsibilities and duties under this Agreement are terminated and if requested to do so by the Master Servicer, the Servicer shall at its own cost and expense terminate the rights and responsibilities of the subservicer effective as of the date of termination of the Servicer.  The Servicer shall pay all fe es, expenses or penalties necessary in order to terminate the rights and responsibilities of the subservicer from the Servicer’s own funds without reimbursement from the Trust Estate.

(c)  Any subservicing agreement and any other transactions or services relating to the Mortgage Loans involving a subservicer shall be deemed to be between the subservicer and the Servicer alone and the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee shall not be deemed parties thereto and shall have no claims, rights, obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to any subservicer, except that the Indenture Trustee shall have such claims or rights that arise as a result of any funds held by a subservicer in trust for or on behalf of the Issuer.  Notwithstanding the execution of any subservicing agreement, the Servicer shall not be relieved of any liability hereunder and shall remain obligated and liable for the servicing and administration of the Mortgage Loans.

(d)  Any subservicing agreement and any other transactions or services relating to the Mortgage Loans involving the subservicer shall be deemed to be between the subservicer and Servicer alone, and none of the Master Servicer, the Indenture Trustee, the Depositor or the Issuer shall have no obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to the subservicer including no obligation, duty or liability of such parties to pay the subservicer's fees and expenses.  For purposes of distributions and advances by the Servicer pursuant to this Agreement, the Servicer shall be deemed to have received a payment on a Mortgage Loan when the subservicer has received such payment.

Section 4.10.  Superior Liens.

(a)  The Servicer shall file (or cause to be filed) a request for notice of any action by a superior lienholder under a Superior Lien for the protection of the Indenture Trustee’s interest, where permitted by local law and whenever applicable state law does not require that a junior lienholder be named as a party defendant in foreclosure proceedings in order to foreclosure such junior lienholder’s equity of redemption.

(b)   If the Servicer is notified that any superior lienholder has accelerated or intends to accelerate the obligations secured by the Superior Lien, or has declared or intends to declare a default under the mortgage or the promissory note secured thereby, or has filed or intends to file an election to have the Mortgaged Property sold or foreclosed, the Servicer shall take, on behalf of the Trust, whatever actions are necessary to protect the interests of the Trust in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices.  The Servicer shall not make such a Servicing Advance except to the extent that it determines in its reasonable good faith judgment that such advance would be recoverable from Liquidation Proceeds on the related Mortgage Loan.  The Servicer shall thereafter take such action as is necessary to recover the amount so advanced.

(c)  The Servicer may, in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, consent to the refinancing of any Superior Lien on a Mortgaged Property.

(b)  It is understood and agreed that the representations and warranties set forth in this Section 5.01 shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement.  The Master Servicer shall indemnify the Seller, the Depositor, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, the Owner Trustee, the Securities Administrator and the Servicer and hold them harmless against any loss, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, legal fees and related costs, judgments, and other costs and expenses resulting from any claim, demand, defense or assertion based on or grounded upon, or resulting from, a breach of the Master Servicer’s representations and warranties contained in this Section 5.01.  It is understood and agreed that the enforcement of the obligation of the Master Servicer set forth in this Section to indemnify the foregoing parties as provided in this Section constitutes the so le remedy (other than as set forth in Section 8.01) of such parties respecting a breach of the foregoing representations and warranties.  Such indemnification shall survive any termination of the Master Servicer as Master Servicer hereunder, and any termination of this Agreement.

Any cause of action against the Master Servicer relating to or arising out of the breach of any representations and warranties made in this Section shall accrue upon discovery of such breach by the Seller, the Depositor, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, the Securities Administrator or the Servicer or notice thereof by any one of such parties to the other parties.  Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Master Servicer shall not be liable for special, indirect or consequential losses or damages of any kind whatsoever (including, but not limited to, lost profits).

(a)  The Master Servicer, at its expense, shall maintain in effect a Master Servicer Fidelity Bond and a Master Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy, affording coverage with respect to all directors, officers, employees and other Persons acting on such Master Servicer’s behalf, and covering errors and omissions in the performance of the Master Servicer’s obligations hereunder.  The Master Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy and the Master Servicer Fidelity Bond shall be in such form and amount that would be consistent with coverage customarily maintained by master servicers of mortgage loans similar to the Mortgage Loans and shall by its terms not be cancelable without thirty days’ prior written notice to the Indenture Trustee.  The Master Servicer shall provide the Depositor and the Indenture Trustee, upon request, with a copy of s uch policy and fidelity bond.  The Master Servicer shall (i) require the Servicer to maintain a Servicer Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy and a Servicer Fidelity Bond in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.02(l) of this Agreement, (ii) cause the Servicer to provide to the Master Servicer certificates evidencing that such policy and bond is in effect and to furnish to the Master Servicer any notice of cancellation, non-renewal or modification of the policy or bond received by it, as and to the extent provided in Section 4.02(l) of the Agreement, and (iii) furnish copies of such policies and of the certificates and notices referred to in clause (ii) to the Indenture Trustee upon request.

Section 5.03.  Master Servicer’s Financial Statements and Related Information.  For each year this Agreement is in effect, the Master Servicer shall deliver to the Securities Administrator, the Indenture Trustee, each Rating Agency and the Depositor a copy of its annual unaudited financial statements on or prior to May 31 of each year, beginning May 31, 2006.  Such financial statements shall include a balance sheet, income statement, statement of retained earnings, statement of additional paid-in capital, statement of changes in financial position and all related notes and schedules and shall be in comparative form, certified by a nationally recognized firm of Independent Accountants to the effect that such statements were examined and prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year.

Section 5.04.  Power to Act; Procedures.

(a)  The Master Servicer shall master service the Mortgage Loans, provided that the Master Servicer shall not take, or knowingly permit the Servicer to take, any action that is inconsistent with or prejudices the interests of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders in any Mortgage Loan or the rights and interests of the Depositor, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders under this Agreement and the Indenture.  The Master Servicer shall represent and protect the interests of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders in the same manner as it protects its own interests in mortgage loans in its own portfolio in any claim, proceeding or litigation regarding a Mortgage Loan.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Master Servicer in its own name, and the Servicer, to the extent such authority is delegated to such Servicer under this Agreement, is hereby authorized and empowered by the Indenture Trustee when the Master Servicer or such Servicer, as the case may be, believes it appropriate in its best judgment and in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, to execute and deliver, on behalf of itself and the Noteholders, the Securities Administrator, the Indenture Trustee or any of them, any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge and all other comparable instruments, with respect to the Mortgage Loans and with respect to the Mortgaged Properties.  The Indenture Trustee shall furnish the Master Servicer, upon request, with any powers of attorney (on the standard form used by the Indenture Trustee) empowering the Master Servicer or the Servicer to execute and deliver instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge, and to foreclose upon or otherwise liquidate Mortgaged Property, and to appeal, prosecute or defend in any court action relating to the Mortgage Loans or the Mortgaged Property, in accordance with this Agreement, and the Indenture Trustee shall execute and deliver such other documents as the Master Servicer may request, necessary or appropriate to enable the Master Servicer to master service the Mortgage Loans and carry out its duties hereunder, and to allow the Servicer to service the Mortgage Loans in each case in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices (and the Indenture Trustee or the Securities Administrator shall have no liability for misuse of any such powers of attorney by the Master Servicer or the Servicer).  If the Master Servicer or the Indenture Trustee has been advised that it is likely that the laws of the state in which action is to be taken prohibit such action if taken in the name of the Indenture Trustee or that the Indenture Trustee would be adversely affected under the “doing business” or tax laws of such state if such action is taken in its name, then upon request of the Indenture Trustee, the Master Servicer shall join with the Indenture Trustee in the appointment of a co-trustee pursuant to Section 6.10 of the Indenture.  In no event shall the Master Servicer, without the Indenture Trustee’s written consent:  (i) initiate any action, suit or proceeding solely under the Indenture Trustee’s name without indicating the Master Servicer’s representative capacity or (ii) take any action with the intent to cause, and which actually does cause, the Indenture Trustee to be registered to do business in any state.  The Master Servicer shall indemnify the Indenture Trustee for any and all costs, liabilities and expenses incurred by the Indenture Trustee in connection with the negligent or willful misuse of such powers of attorney by the Master Servicer.  In the performance of its duties hereunder, the Master Servicer shall be an independent contractor and shall not, except in those instances where it is taking action in the name of the Indenture Trustee, be deemed to be the agent of the Indenture Trustee.

(b)  In master servicing and administering the Mortgage Loans, the Master Servicer shall employ procedures and exercise the same care that it customarily employs and exercises in master servicing and administering loans for its own account, giving due consideration to Accepted Servicing Practices where such practices do not conflict with this Agreement.  

Section 5.05.  Enforcement of Servicer’s and Master Servicer’s Obligations.  

(a)  The Master Servicer shall not be required to (i) take any action with respect to the servicing of any Mortgage Loan that the Servicer is not required to take under this Agreement and (ii) cause the Servicer to take any action or refrain from taking any action if this Agreement does not require the Servicer to take such action or refrain from taking such action.

(b)  The Master Servicer, for the benefit of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders, shall enforce the obligations of the Servicer hereunder, and shall, in the event that the Servicer fails to perform its obligations in accordance herewith, terminate the rights and obligations of the Servicer hereunder and either act as servicer of the related Mortgage Loans or cause other parties hereto to either assume the obligations of the Servicer under this Agreement (or agree to execute and deliver a successor servicing or subservicing agreement with a successor servicer).  Such enforcement, including, without limitation, the legal prosecution of claims, termination of servicing or subservicing rights and the pursuit of other appropriate remedies, shall be in such form and carried out to such an extent and at such time as the Master Servicer, in its good faith busines s judgment, would require were it the owner of the related Mortgage Loans.  The Master Servicer shall pay the costs of such enforcement at its own expense, and shall be reimbursed therefor initially (i) from a general recovery resulting from such enforcement only to the extent, if any, that such recovery exceeds all amounts due in respect of the related Mortgage Loans, (ii) from a specific recovery of costs, expenses or attorneys’ fees against the party against whom such enforcement is directed, and then, (iii) to the extent that such amounts are insufficient to reimburse the Master Servicer for the costs of such enforcement, from the Collection Account.

Section 5.06.  Collection Account.

(a)  On the Closing Date, the Master Servicer shall open and shall thereafter maintain a segregated account held in trust in the name of the Indenture Trustee (the “Collection Account”), entitled “Collection Account, U.S. Bank National Association, as Indenture Trustee, in trust for Holders of the HomeBanc Mortgage Trust 2005-4, Mortgage Backed Notes.”  The Collection Account shall relate solely to the Notes issued by the Issuer, and funds deposited in the Collection Account shall not be commingled with any other monies.

(b)  The Collection Account shall be an Eligible Account.  If an existing Collection Account ceases to be an Eligible Account, the Securities Administrator shall establish a new Collection Account that is an Eligible Account within ten (10) days and transfer all funds and investment property on deposit in such existing Collection Account into such new Collection Account.

(c)  The Master Servicer shall give to the Securities Administrator and the Indenture Trustee prior written notice of the name and address of the depository institution at which the Collection Account is maintained and the account number of such Collection Account.  The Master Servicer shall take such actions as are necessary to cause the depository institution holding the Collection Account to hold such account in the name of the Indenture Trustee.  On each Payment Date, the entire amount on deposit in the Collection Account relating to the Mortgage Loans (subject to permitted withdrawals set forth in Section 5.07), other than amounts not included in Interest Funds or Principal Funds to be paid to Noteholders for such Payment Date, shall be applied to make the requested payment of principal and/or interest on each Class of Notes.

(d)  The Master Servicer shall deposit or cause to be deposited in the Collection Account on the earlier of the applicable Payment Date and one Business Day following receipt thereof, the following amounts received or payments made by the Master Servicer (other than in respect of principal of and interest on the Mortgage Loans due on or before the Cut-off Date):

(i)         all remittances from the Custodial Account to the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 4.03;

(ii)        all Monthly Advances made by the Servicer or the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 6.04 hereof and any payment in respect of Prepayment Interest Shortfalls paid by the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 5.16 hereof; and

(iii)      the Purchase Price of any Mortgage Loan repurchased by the Depositor or the Seller during the related Prepayment Period or any other Person and any Substitution Amount related to any Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan.

(e)  Funds in the Collection Account may be invested by the Master Servicer in Eligible Investments selected by and at the written direction of the Master Servicer, which shall mature not later than one Business Day prior to the next Payment Date (or on the Payment Date with respect to any Eligible Investment of the Master Servicer or any other fund managed or advised by it or any Affiliate) and any such Eligible Investment shall not be sold or disposed of prior to its maturity.  All such Eligible Investments shall be made in the name of the Master Servicer in trust for the benefit of the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders.  All income and gain net of the Indenture Trustee Fee, the Owner Trustee Fee, the Custodian Fee and any losses realized from any such investment of funds on deposit in the Collection Account shall be for the benefit of the Master Servicer and sh all be subject to its withdrawal or order from time to time, subject to Section 5.07 and shall not be part of the Trust Estate.  The amount of any losses incurred in respect of any such investments shall be deposited in such Collection Account by the Master Servicer out of its own funds, without any right of reimbursement therefor, immediately as realized.  The foregoing requirements for deposit in the Collection Account are exclusive, it being understood and agreed that, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, payments of interest on funds in the Collection Account and payments in the nature of late payment charges, assumption fees and other incidental fees and charges relating to the Mortgage Loans need not be deposited by the Master Servicer in the Collection Account and may be retained by the Master Servicer or the Servicer, as applicable, as additional servicing compensation.  If the Master Servicer deposits in the Collection Account any amount not required to be deposited there in, it may at any time withdraw such amount from such Collection Account.  

Section 5.07.  Application of Funds in the Collection Account.  The Master Servicer shall withdraw funds from the Collection Account for payments to the Note Payment Account pursuant to Section 6.01.  In addition, the Master Servicer may prior to making the payment pursuant to Section 6.01 from time to time make withdrawals from the Collection Account for the following purposes:

(i)         to pay to the Indenture Trustee and the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee Fee and the Owner Trustee Fee, respectively, and to pay to the Custodian its fees, in each case on the Payment Date each year in the month in which such Indenture Trustee Fee and Owner Trustee Fee, and the fees of the Custodian, as applicable, are due and payable pursuant to the terms of the respective fee letter agreements with the Indenture Trustee, the Owner Trustee and the Custodian;

(ii)        to reimburse the Master Servicer or the Servicer, as applicable, for any previously unreimbursed Monthly Advances or Servicing Advances made by any such party, such right to reimbursement pursuant to this subclause (ii) being limited to amounts received on or in respect of a particular Mortgage Loan (including, for this purpose, Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds and amounts representing Insurance Proceeds with respect to the property subject to the related Mortgage) which represent late recoveries (net of the applicable Servicing Fee) of payments of principal or interest respecting which any such Monthly Advance was made, it being understood, in the case of any such reimbursement, that the Master Servicer’s or Servicer’s right thereto shall be prior to the rights of the Noteholders;

(iii)      to reimburse the Master Servicer or the Servicer following a final liquidation of a Mortgage Loan for any previously unreimbursed Monthly Advances made by any such party (A) that such party determines in good faith will not be recoverable from amounts representing late recoveries of payments of principal or interest respecting the particular Mortgage Loan as to which such Monthly Advance was made or from Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds with respect to such Mortgage Loan and/or (B) to the extent that such unreimbursed Monthly Advances exceed the related Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds, it being understood, in the case of each such reimbursement, that the Master Servicer’s or Servicer’s right thereto shall be prior to the rights of the Noteholders;

(iv)       to reimburse the Master Servicer or the Servicer from Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds for Liquidation Expenses and for amounts expended by it pursuant to Section 4.02(n) in good faith in connection with the restoration of damaged property and, to the extent that Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds after such reimbursement exceed the unpaid principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon at the applicable Mortgage Rate less the Servicing Fee Rate for such Mortgage Loan to the Due Date next succeeding the date of its receipt of such Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds, to pay to the Master Servicer or the Servicer out of such excess the amount of any unpaid assumption fees, late payment charges or other Mortgagor charges on the related Mortgage Loan and to retain any excess remaining thereafter as additional servicing compensation, it being understood, in the case of any such reimbursement or payment, that such Master Servicer’s or Servicer’s right thereto shall be prior to the rights of the Noteholders;

(v)        to pay to the Depositor or the Seller or any other Person, as applicable, with respect to each Mortgage Loan or REO Property acquired in respect thereof that has been purchased pursuant to this Agreement, all amounts received thereon and not paid on the date on which the related repurchase was effected, and to pay to the applicable party any Monthly Advances and Servicing Advances to the extent specified in the definition of Purchase Price;

(vi)       to the extent not paid by the Servicer, to pay any insurance premium with respect to a Mortgage Loan;

(vii)      to pay to the Master Servicer income earned on the investment of funds on deposit in the Collection Account;

(viii)    to make payment to itself, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Servicer, the Indenture Trustee, the Custodian, the Owner Trustee and others pursuant to any provision of any Operative Agreement;

(ix)       to withdraw funds deposited in error in the Collection Account;

(x)        to clear and terminate the Collection Account pursuant to Article IX; and

(xi)       to reimburse a successor master servicer (solely in its capacity as successor master servicer), for any fee or advance occasioned by a termination of the Master Servicer and the assumption of such duties by the Indenture Trustee as successor master servicer or a successor master servicer appointed by the Indenture Trustee pursuant to Section 8.01, in each case to the extent not reimbursed by the terminated Master Servicer, it being understood, in the case of any such reimbursement or payment, that the right of the Master Servicer or the Indenture Trustee thereto shall be prior to the rights of the Noteholders.

In connection with withdrawals pursuant to subclauses (ii) through (iv) above, the Master Servicer’s or the Servicer’s or such other Person’s entitlement thereto is limited to collections or other recoveries on the related Mortgage Loan.  The Master Servicer shall therefore keep and maintain a separate accounting for each Mortgage Loan for the purpose of justifying any withdrawal from the Collection Account it maintains pursuant to such subclauses.

(b)  If the Master Servicer acts as a successor Servicer, it shall not assume liability for the representations and warranties of the Servicer that it replaces.  The Master Servicer shall use reasonable efforts to have the successor Servicer assume liability for the representations and warranties made by the terminated Servicer and in the event of any such assumption by the successor servicer, the Master Servicer may, in the exercise of its business judgment, release the terminated Servicer from liability for such representations and warranties.

(c)  If the Master Servicer acts as a successor Servicer, it will have no obligation to make a Monthly Advance if it determines in its reasonable judgment that such Monthly Advance would constitute a Nonrecoverable Advance.

(b)  The Master Servicer that has been terminated shall, upon request of the Indenture Trustee but at the expense of such Master Servicer, deliver to the assuming party all documents and records relating to the Mortgage Loans and an accounting of amounts collected and held by it and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of master servicing to the assuming party.

(d)  The Master Servicer agrees that it shall not, and shall not authorize the Servicer to, create, incur or subject any Mortgage Loans, or any funds that are deposited in any Custodial Account, Escrow Account or the Collection Account, or any funds that otherwise are or may become due or payable to or for the benefit of the Indenture Trustee, to any claim, lien, security interest, judgment, levy, writ of attachment or other encumbrance, nor assert by legal action or otherwise any claim or right of setoff against any Mortgage Loan or any funds collected on, or in connection with, a Mortgage Loan.

(b)  With respect to the Trust Account Property credited to the Trust Accounts, the Securities Intermediary agrees that:

(i)         with respect to any Trust Account Property that is held in deposit accounts, each such deposit account shall be subject to the exclusive custody and control of the Securities Intermediary, and the Securities Intermediary shall have sole signature authority with respect thereto;

(ii)        the sole assets permitted in each Trust Account shall be those as the Securities Intermediary agrees to treat as Financial Assets; and

(iii)      any such Trust Account Property that is, or is treated as, a Financial Asset shall be physically delivered (accompanied by any required endorsements) to, or credited to an account in the name of, the Securities Intermediary or other eligible institution maintaining each Trust Account in accordance with the Securities Intermediary’s customary procedures such that the Securities Intermediary or such other institution establishes a Security Entitlement in favor of the Indenture Trustee with respect thereto over which the Securities Intermediary or such other institution has Control;

(c)  The Securities Intermediary hereby confirms that (A) each Trust Account is an account to which Financial Assets are or may be credited, and the Securities Intermediary shall, subject to the terms of this Agreement, treat the Indenture Trustee, as collateral agent, as entitled to exercise the rights that comprise any Financial Asset credited to each Trust Account, (B) all Trust Account Property in respect of each Trust Account will be promptly credited by the Securities Intermediary to such account, and (C) all securities or other property underlying any Financial Assets credited to each Trust Account shall be registered in the name of the Securities Intermediary, endorsed to the Securities Intermediary or in blank or credited to another securities account maintained in the name of the Securities Intermediary and in no case will any Financial Asset credited to any Trust Acc ount be registered in the name of the Depositor or the Issuer, payable to the order of the Depositor or the Issuer or specially endorsed to the Depositor or the Issuer, except to the extent the foregoing have been specially endorsed to the Securities Intermediary or in blank;

(f)  In the event that the Securities Intermediary has or subsequently obtains by agreement, operation of law or otherwise a security interest in a Trust Account or any Financial Asset credited thereto, the Securities Intermediary hereby agrees that such security interest shall be subordinate to the security interest of the Indenture Trustee.  The Financial Assets credited to each Trust Account will not be subject to deduction, set-off, banker’s lien, or any other right in favor of any Person other than the Indenture Trustee (except that the Securities Intermediary may set-off (i) all amounts due to it in respect of its customary fees and expenses for the routine maintenance and operation of a Trust Account and (ii) the face amount of any checks which have been credited to a Trust Account but are subsequently returned unpaid because of uncollected or insufficient fund s);

(g)  There are no other agreements entered into between the Securities Intermediary in such capacity and the Depositor or the Issuer with respect to the Trust Accounts.  In the event of any conflict between this Agreement (or any provision of this Agreement) and any other agreement now existing or hereafter entered into, the terms of this Agreement shall prevail;

(h)  The rights and powers granted under the Indenture and herein to the Indenture Trustee have been granted in order to perfect its security interest in each Trust Account and the Security Entitlements to the Financial Assets credited thereto, and are powers coupled with an interest and will neither be affected by the bankruptcy of the Depositor or the Issuer nor by the lapse of time.  The obligations of the Securities Intermediary hereunder shall continue in effect until the security interest of the Indenture Trustee in the Trust Accounts, and in such Security Entitlements, has been terminated pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and the Indenture Trustee or the Issuer, as applicable, has notified the Securities Intermediary of such termination in writing; and

(i)   Notwithstanding anything else contained herein, the Depositor and the Issuer agree that each Trust Account will be established only with the Securities Intermediary or another institution meeting the requirements of this Section, which by acceptance of its appointment as Securities Intermediary agrees substantially as follows:  (1) it will comply with Entitlement Orders related to each Trust Account issued by the Indenture Trustee, as collateral agent, without further consent by the Depositor or the Issuer, without further consent by the Depositor; (2) until termination of the Issuer or discharge of the Indenture, it will not enter into any other agreement related to such accounts pursuant to which it agrees to comply with Entitlement Orders of any Person other than the Indenture Trustee, as collateral agent, or the Securities Administrator on its behalf; and (3 ) all assets delivered or credited to it in connection with such account and all investments thereof will be promptly credited to the applicable account.

(j)   Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Issuer shall have the power, revocable by the Indenture Trustee or by the Owner Trustee with the consent of the Indenture Trustee, to instruct the Indenture Trustee, the Securities Administrator and the Master Servicer to make withdrawals and payments from each Trust Account for the purpose of permitting the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator or the Owner Trustee to carry out its respective duties hereunder or permitting the Indenture Trustee to carry out its duties under the Indenture.

(k)  Each of the Depositor and the Issuer agrees to take or cause to be taken such further actions, to execute, deliver and file or cause to be executed, delivered and filed such further documents and instruments (including, without limitation, any financing statements under the Relevant UCC or this Agreement) as may be necessary to perfect the interests created by this Section in favor of the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee and otherwise fully to effectuate the purposes, terms and conditions of this Section.  The Depositor shall:

(i)         promptly execute, deliver and file any financing statements, amendments, continuation statements, assignments, certificates and other documents with respect to such interests and perform all such other acts as may be necessary in order to perfect or to maintain the perfection of the Issuer’s and the Indenture Trustee’s security interest in the Trust Account Property; and

None of the Securities Intermediary or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Securities Intermediary shall be under any liability to the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders for any action taken, or not taken, in good faith pursuant to this Agreement, or for errors in judgment; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect the Securities Intermediary against any liability to the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders which would otherwise be imposed by reason of the Securities Intermediary’s willful misconduct, bad faith or negligence in the performance of its obligations or duties hereunder.  The Securities Intermediary and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Securities Intermediary may rely in good faith on any document of any kind which, prima facie, is properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder.  The S ecurities Intermediary shall be under no duty to inquire into or investigate the validity, accuracy or content of such document.  The Issuer shall indemnify the Securities Intermediary for and hold it harmless against any loss, liability or expense arising out of or in connection with this Agreement and carrying out its duties hereunder, including the costs and expenses of defending itself against any claim of liability, except in those cases where the Securities Intermediary has been guilty of bad faith, negligence or willful misconduct.  The foregoing indemnification shall survive any termination of this Agreement or the resignation or removal of the Securities Intermediary.

(b)  In the event that the Master Servicer or Servicer fails for any reason to make a Monthly Advance required to be made pursuant to this Section 6.04, the Indenture Trustee, as successor Master Servicer, shall, on or before the related Payment Date, deposit in the Collection Account an amount equal to the excess of (a) Monthly Advances required to be made by the Master Servicer or the Servicer that would have been deposited in such Collection Account over (b) the amount of any Monthly Advance made by the Master Servicer or the Servicer with respect to such Payment Date; provided, however, that the Indenture Trustee as successor Master Servicer shall be required to make such Monthly Advance only if it is not prohibited by law from doing so and it has determined that such Monthly Advance would be recoverable from amounts to be received with respect to such Mortgage Loan, including late payments, Liquidation Proceeds, Condemnation Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds, or otherwise.  The Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to be reimbursed from the Collection Account for Monthly Advances made by it pursuant to this Section 6.04 as if it were the Master Servicer and shall be entitled to receive all compensation and fees of the Master Servicer in accordance with Section 8.01(b).

(ii)        Any failure on the part of the Master Servicer duly to observe or perform in any material respect any other of the covenants or agreements on the part of the Master Servicer contained in this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of 60 days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to the Master Servicer by the Indenture Trustee or the Securities Administrator or to the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee by the Majority Noteholders; or

(iii)      A decree or order of a court or agency or supervisory authority having jurisdiction for the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings, or for the winding-up or liquidation of its affairs, shall have been entered against the Master Servicer, and such decree or order shall have remained in force undischarged or unstayed for a period of 60 days or any Rating Agency reduces or withdraws or threatens to reduce or withdraw the rating of the Notes because of the financial condition or loan servicing capability of such Master Servicer; or

(iv)       The Master Servicer shall consent to the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities, voluntary liquidation or similar proceedings of or relating to the Master Servicer or of or relating to all or substantially all of its property; or

(v)        The Master Servicer shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, file a petition to take advantage of any applicable insolvency or reorganization statute, make an assignment for the benefit of its creditors or voluntarily suspend payment of its obligations; or

(vi)       The Master Servicer shall be dissolved, or shall dispose of all or substantially all of its assets, or consolidate with or merge into another entity or shall permit another entity to consolidate or merge into it, such that the resulting entity does not meet the criteria for a successor servicer as specified in Section 5.19 hereof; or

(vii)      If a representation or warranty set forth in Section 5.01 hereof shall prove to be incorrect as of the time made in any respect that materially and adversely affects the interests of the Noteholders, and the circumstance or condition in respect of which such representation or warranty was incorrect shall not have been eliminated or cured within 30 days after the date on which written notice of such incorrect representation or warranty shall have been given to the Master Servicer by the Indenture Trustee or the Securities Administrator, or to the Master Servicer and the Indenture Trustee by the Majority Noteholders; or

(viii)    A sale or pledge of any of the rights of the Master Servicer hereunder or an assignment of this Agreement by the Master Servicer or a delegation of the rights or duties of the Master Servicer hereunder shall have occurred in any manner not otherwise permitted hereunder and without the prior written consent of the Indenture Trustee and the Majority Noteholders; or

(ix)       The Master Servicer has notice or actual knowledge that the Servicer at any time is not either a Fannie Mae- or Freddie Mac-approved Seller/Servicer, and the Master Servicer has not terminated the rights and obligations of such Servicer under this Agreement and replaced the Servicer with an Fannie Mae- or Freddie Mac-approved servicer within 60 days of the date the Master Servicer receives such notice or acquires such actual knowledge; or

(x)        Any failure of the Master Servicer to remit to the Securities Administrator any Monthly Advance required to be made to the Securities Administrator for the benefit of Noteholders under the terms of this Agreement, which failure continues unremedied as of the close of business on the Business Day prior to a Payment Date.

If a Master Servicer Event of Default described in clauses (i) through (ix) of this Section 8.01 shall occur, then, in each and every case, subject to applicable law, so long as any such Master Servicer Event of Default shall not have been remedied within any period of time prescribed by this Section 8.01, the Indenture Trustee, upon obtaining actual knowledge thereof, by notice in writing to the Master Servicer may, and shall, if so directed by the Majority Noteholders, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Master Servicer hereunder and in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof.  If a Master Servicer Event of Default described in clause (x) of this Section 8.01 shall occur, then, in each and every case, subject to applicable law, so long as such Master Servicer Event of Default shall not have been remedied within the time period prescribed by clause (x) of this Section 8 .01, the Indenture Trustee, by notice in writing to the Master Servicer, shall promptly terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Master Servicer hereunder and in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof.  On or after the receipt by the Master Servicer of such written notice, all authority and power of the Master Servicer, and only in its capacity as Master Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Mortgage Loans or otherwise, shall pass to and be vested in the Indenture Trustee pursuant to and under the terms of this Agreement; and the Indenture Trustee is hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of the defaulting Master Servicer as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, any and all documents and other instruments, and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such notice of termination, whether to complete the transfer and endorsement or assignment of the Mortgage Loans and related documents or o therwise.  The defaulting Master Servicer agrees to cooperate with the Indenture Trustee in effecting the termination of the defaulting Master Servicer’s responsibilities and rights hereunder as Master Servicer including, without limitation, notifying the Servicer of the assignment of the master servicing function and providing the Indenture Trustee or its designee all documents and records in electronic or other form reasonably requested by it to enable the Indenture Trustee or its designee to assume the defaulting Master Servicer’s functions hereunder and the transfer to the Indenture Trustee for administration by it of all amounts which shall at the time be or should have been deposited by the defaulting Master Servicer in the Collection Account maintained by such defaulting Master Servicer and any other account or fund maintained with respect to the Notes or thereafter received with respect to the Mortgage Loans.  The Master Servicer being terminated shall bear all reasonable out-of-p ocket costs of a master servicing transfer, including but not limited to those of the Indenture Trustee, legal fees and expenses, accounting and financial consulting fees and expenses, and costs of amending the Agreement, if necessary.

The Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to be reimbursed from the Master Servicer (or by the Trust Estate, if the Master Servicer is unable to fulfill its obligations hereunder) for all costs associated with the transfer of servicing from the predecessor Master Servicer, including, without limitation, any costs or expenses associated with the complete transfer of all servicing data and the completion, correction or manipulation of such servicing data as may be required by the Indenture Trustee to correct any errors or insufficiencies in the servicing data or otherwise to enable the Indenture Trustee to master service the Mortgage Loans properly and effectively.  If the terminated Master Servicer does not pay such reimbursement within thirty (30) days of its receipt of an invoice therefore, such reimbursement shall be an expense of the Trust Estate and the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to wi thdraw such reimbursement from amounts on deposit in the Collection Account pursuant to Section 5.07(viii); provided that the terminated Master Servicer shall reimburse the Trust Estate for any such expense incurred by the Trust Estate; and provided, further, that the Indenture Trustee shall take such action, if any, as provided in the Indenture and as directed by the Noteholders pursuant thereto with respect to pursuing any remedy against any party obligated to make such reimbursement.

Notwithstanding the termination of its activities as Master Servicer, each terminated Master Servicer shall continue to be entitled to reimbursement to the extent provided in Section 5.07 to the extent such reimbursement relates to the period prior to such Master Servicer’s termination.

If any Master Servicer Event of Default shall occur, of which a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee has actual knowledge, the Indenture Trustee shall promptly notify each Rating Agency of the nature and extent of such Master Servicer Event of Default.  The Securities Administrator or the Master Servicer shall immediately give written notice by facsimile to the Indenture Trustee upon the Master Servicer’s failure to remit Monthly Advances on the date specified herein.

(b)  On and after the time the Master Servicer receives a notice of termination from the Indenture Trustee pursuant to Section 8.01(a) or the Indenture Trustee receives the resignation of the Master Servicer evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel pursuant to Section 5.20, the Indenture Trustee, unless another master servicer shall have been appointed, shall be the successor in all respects to the Master Servicer in its capacity as such under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for herein and shall have all the rights and powers and be subject to all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities relating thereto and arising thereafter placed on the Master Servicer hereunder, including the obligation to make Monthly Advances; provided, however, that any failure to perform such duties or responsibilities caused by the Master Servicer’s failure to provi de information required by this Agreement shall not be considered a default by the Indenture Trustee hereunder.  In addition, the Indenture Trustee shall have no responsibility for any act or omission of the Master Servicer prior to the issuance of any notice of termination and shall have no liability relating to the representations and warranties of the Master Servicer set forth in Section 5.01.  In the Indenture Trustee’s capacity as such successor, the Indenture Trustee shall have the same limitations on liability herein granted to the Master Servicer.  As compensation therefor, the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to receive all compensation payable to the Master Servicer under this Agreement.

(c)  Notwithstanding the above, the Indenture Trustee may, if it shall be unwilling to continue to so act, or shall, if it is unable to so act, appoint, or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint, any established housing and home finance institution servicer, master servicer, servicing or mortgage servicing institution having a net worth of not less than $15,000,000 and meeting such other standards for a successor master servicer as are set forth in this Agreement, as the successor to such Master Servicer in the assumption of all of the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of a master servicer, like the Master Servicer.  Such successor Master Servicer may be an Affiliate of the Indenture Trustee; provided, however, that, unless such Affiliate meets the net worth requirements and other standards set forth herein for a successor master servicer, the I ndenture Trustee, in its individual capacity shall agree, at the time of such designation, to be and remain liable to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee for such Affiliate’s actions and omissions in performing its duties hereunder.  In connection with such appointment and assumption, the Indenture Trustee may make such arrangements for the compensation of such successor out of payments on the Mortgage Loans as it and such successor shall agree; provided, however, that no such compensation shall be in excess of that permitted to the Master Servicer hereunder.  The Indenture Trustee and such successor shall take such actions, consistent with this Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession and may make other arrangements with respect to the servicing to be conducted hereunder which are not inconsistent herewith.  The Master Servicer shall cooperate with the Indenture Trustee and any successor master servicer in effecting the termination of the Master Servicer ’s responsibilities and rights hereunder including, without limitation, notifying the Servicer of the assignment of the master servicing functions and providing the Indenture Trustee and successor master servicer, as applicable, all documents and records in electronic or other form reasonably requested by it to enable it to assume the Master Servicer’s functions hereunder and the transfer to the Indenture Trustee or such successor master servicer, as applicable, all amounts or investment property which shall at the time be or should have been deposited by the Master Servicer in the Collection Account and any other account or fund maintained with respect to the Notes or thereafter be received with respect to the Mortgage Loans.  Neither the Indenture Trustee nor any other successor master servicer shall be deemed to be in default hereunder by reason of any failure to make, or any delay in making, any payment hereunder or any portion thereof caused by (i) the failure of the Master Servicer to de liver, or any delay in delivering, cash, documents or records to it, (ii) the failure of the Master Servicer to cooperate as required by this Agreement, (iii) the failure of the Master Servicer to deliver the Mortgage Loan data to the Indenture Trustee as required by this Agreement or (iv) restrictions imposed by any regulatory authority having jurisdiction over the Master Servicer.

Section 8.02.  Additional Remedies of Indenture Trustee Upon Event of Default.  During the continuance of any Master Servicer Event of Default, so long as such Master Servicer Event of Default shall not have been remedied, the Indenture Trustee, in addition to the rights specified in Section 8.01, shall have the right, in its own name and as trustee of an express trust, to take all actions now or hereafter existing at law, in equity or by statute to enforce its rights and remedies and to protect the interests, and enforce the rights and remedies, of the Noteholders (including the institution and prosecution of all judicial, administrative and other proceedings and the filings of proofs of claim and debt in connection therewith).  Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, no remedy provided for by this Agreement shall be exclusive of any other remedy, and each and every remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to any other remedy, and no delay or omission to exercise any right or remedy shall impair any such right or remedy or shall be deemed to be a waiver of any Event of Default.

Section 8.03.  Waiver of Defaults.  The Majority Noteholders may, on behalf of all Noteholders, waive any default or Master Servicer Event of Default by the Master Servicer in the performance of its obligations hereunder, except that a default in the making of any required deposit to the Collection Account that would result in a failure of the Securities Administrator to make any required payment of principal of or interest on the Notes may only be waived with the consent of 100% of the affected Noteholders.  Upon any such waiver of a past default, such default shall cease to exist, and any Event of Default arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been remedied for every purpose of this Agreement.  No such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other default or impair any right consequent thereon except to the extent expressly so waived.

Section 8.04.  Notification to Holders.  Upon termination of the Master Servicer or appointment of a successor to the Master Servicer, in each case as provided herein, the Indenture Trustee shall promptly mail notice thereof by first class mail to the Noteholders at their respective addresses appearing on the applicable Register.  The Indenture Trustee shall also, within 45 days after the occurrence of any Master Servicer Event of Default known to the Indenture Trustee, give written notice thereof to Noteholders, unless such Event of Default shall have been cured or waived prior to the issuance of such notice and within such 45-day period.

Section 8.05.  Directions by Noteholders and Duties of Indenture Trustee During Master Servicer Event of Default.  During the continuance of any Master Servicer Event of Default, the Majority Noteholders may direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Indenture Trustee, or exercising any trust or power conferred upon the Indenture Trustee, under this Agreement; provided, however, that the Indenture Trustee shall be under no obligation to pursue any such remedy, or to exercise any of the trusts or powers vested in it by this Agreement (including, without limitation, (i) the conducting or defending of any administrative action or litigation hereunder or in relation hereto and (ii) the terminating of the Master Servicer or any successor master servicer from its rights and duties as master servicer hereu nder) at the request, order or direction of any of the Noteholders, unless such Noteholders shall have offered to the Indenture Trustee security or indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it against the cost, expenses and liabilities which may be incurred therein or thereby; and, provided further, that, the Indenture Trustee shall have the right to decline to follow any such direction if the Indenture Trustee, in accordance with an Opinion of Counsel, determines that the action or proceeding so directed may not lawfully be taken or if the Indenture Trustee in good faith determines that the action or proceeding so directed would involve it in personal liability for which it is not indemnified to its satisfaction or be unjustly prejudicial to the non-assenting Noteholders.

Section 8.06.  Action Upon Certain Failures of the Master Servicer and Upon Master Servicer Event of Default.  In the event that a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee or the Securities Administrator shall have actual knowledge of any action or inaction of the Master Servicer that would become a Master Servicer Event of Default upon the Master Servicer’s failure to remedy the same after notice, the Indenture Trustee or Securities Administrator, as applicable, shall give notice thereof to the Master Servicer.

Section 8.07.  Preparation of Reports.  

(a)  The Depositor shall prepare or cause to be prepared the initial current report on Form 8-K.  Thereafter, within 15 days after each Payment Date, the Securities Administrator shall, in accordance with industry standards customary for securities similar to the Notes as required by the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), file with the Commission via the Electronic Data Gathering and Retrieval System (EDGAR), a Form 8-K with a copy of the statement to the Noteholders for such Payment Date as an exhibit thereto.  Prior to January 30, 2006, the Securities Administrator shall, in accordance with industry standards applicable to the Notes, file a Form 15 Suspension Notification with respect to the Issuer, if applicable.  Prior to March 31, 2006 and prior to March 31 in each succeeding yea r so long as a Form 15 has not been filed for the prior calendar year, the Securities Administrator shall file (and the Master Servicer will execute) a Form 10-K, in substance conforming to industry standards applicable to the Notes, with respect to the Issuer.  The Form 10-K shall include the certification required pursuant to Rule 13a-14 under the Exchange Act (the “Form 10-K Certification,” which Form 10-K Certification shall be signed by the Master Servicer).  The Indenture Trustee and the Securities Administrator shall have no liability for any delay in filing the Form 10-K due to the failure of such party to timely sign the Form 10-K or Form 10-K Certification.  The Depositor hereby grants, and in the case of the Form 10-K Certification, an Authorized Officer of the Depositor will grant, to the Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator a limited power of attorney to execute and file each such document on behalf of the Depositor.  Such power of attorney shall continu e until either the earlier of (i) receipt by the Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator from the Depositor of written termination of such power of attorney and (ii) the termination of the Issuer.  The Depositor agrees to promptly furnish to the Securities Administrator, from time to time upon request, in EDGAR format or in a format easily convertible to EDGAR, such further information, reports, and financial statements within its control related to this Agreement and the Mortgage Loans as the Securities Administrator reasonably deems appropriate to prepare and file all necessary reports with the Commission.  The Securities Administrator shall have no responsibility to file any items other than those specified in this section.

(b)  Each person (including their officers or directors) that signs any Form 10-K Certification shall be entitled to indemnification from the Trust Estate for any liability or expense incurred by it in connection with such certification, other than any liability or expense attributable to such Person’s own bad faith, negligence or willful misconduct.  The provisions of this subsection shall survive any termination of this Agreement and the resignation or removal of such Person.

(c)  To the extent that, following the Closing Date, the contents of Forms 8-K, 10-K or other Forms required by the Exchange Act and the Rules and Regulations of the Commission and the time by which such Forms are required to be filed, differs from the provisions of this Agreement, the parties hereto hereby agree that each shall reasonably cooperate to amend the provisions of this Agreement (in accordance with Section 10.03) in order to comply with such amended reporting requirements and such amendment of this Agreement.  Any such amendment may result in the reduction of the reports filed by the Servicer under the Exchange Act.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, none of the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Servicer or the Securities Administrator shall be obligated to enter into any amendment pursuant to this Section that adversely affects its obligations and immuniti es under this Agreement.

Section 10.02.  Entire Agreement.  This Agreement contains the entire agreement and understanding among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, understandings, inducements and conditions, express or implied, oral or written, of any nature whatsoever with respect to the subject matter hereof.  The express terms hereof control and supersede any course of performance and/or usage of the trade inconsistent with any of the terms hereof.

Section 10.03.  Amendment.

(a)  This Agreement may be amended from time to time by the parties hereto, without notice to or the consent of the Swap Counterparty (except to the extent that the rights or obligations of the Swap Counterparty hereunder or under any Swap Agreement are affected thereby, and except to the extent the ability of the Securities Administrator on behalf of the Trust to perform fully and timely its obligations under any Swap Agreement is adversely affected, in which case prior written consent of the Swap Counterparty is required) or any of the Holders of the Notes, (i) to cure any ambiguity, (ii) to cause the provisions herein to conform to or be consistent with or in furtherance of the statements made with respect to the Notes, the Trust or this Agreement in any Offering Document, or to correct or supplement any provision herein which may be inconsistent with any other provisions he rein or in any other Operative Agreement, to make any other provisions with respect to matters or questions arising under this Agreement, (iii) to make any other provision with respect to matters or questions arising under this Agreement (iv) to add, delete, or amend any provisions to the extent necessary or desirable relating to any Class of Notes issued pursuant to a supplemental indenture to the Indenture that is subordinate in rights of payment of interest and principal to each Class of Notes issued pursuant to the Indenture on the Closing Date, or (v) to add, delete, or amend any provisions to the extent necessary or desirable to comply with any requirements imposed by the Code or ERISA and applicable regulations.  No such amendment effected pursuant to the preceding sentence shall, as evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel (which shall be an expense of the party requesting such amendment and shall not be an expense of the Trust or the Indenture Trustee), (1) affect the status of the Notes as debt for federal income tax purposes and (2) nor shall such amendment effected pursuant to clauses (iii) or (iv) of such sentence adversely affect in any material respect the interests of any Holder.  Prior to entering into any amendment without the consent of Holders pursuant to this paragraph, the Indenture Trustee may require an Opinion of Counsel (at the expense of the party requesting such amendment) to the effect that such amendment is permitted under this paragraph.  Any such amendment shall be deemed not to adversely affect in any material respect any Holder, if the Indenture Trustee receives written confirmation from each Rating Agency that such amendment will not cause such Rating Agency to reduce the then current rating assigned to the Notes.

(b)  This Agreement may also be amended from time to time by the parties hereto without the consent of the Swap Counterparty (except to the extent that the rights or obligations of the Swap Counterparty hereunder or under any Swap Agreement are affected thereby, and except to the extent the ability of the Securities Administrator on behalf of the Trust to perform fully and timely its obligations under any Swap Agreement is adversely affected, in which case prior written consent of the Swap Counterparty is required), but with the consent of the Noteholders representing 66-2/3% Voting Interests 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 Holders; provided, however, that no such amendment may (i) reduce in any manner the amount of, or delay the ti ming of, payments which are required to be paid on any Class of Notes, without the consent of the Noteholders of such Class or (ii) reduce the aforesaid percentages of Class Principal Amount of Notes, the Holders of which are required to consent to any such amendment without the consent of the Holders of 100% of the Class Principal Amount of the Notes.  For purposes of this paragraph, references to “Holder” or “Holders” shall be deemed to include, in the case of Book-Entry Notes, the related Note Owners.

(c)  Promptly after the execution of any such amendment, the Indenture Trustee shall furnish written notification of the substance of such amendment to each Holder, the Depositor and to each Rating Agency.

(d)  It shall not be necessary for the consent of Holders under this Section 10.03 to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment, but it shall be sufficient if such consent shall approve the substance thereof.  The manner of obtaining such consents and of evidencing the authorization of the execution thereof by Holders shall be subject to such reasonable regulations as the Indenture Trustee may prescribe.

Section 10.04.  Acts of Noteholders.  Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, whenever Noteholder action, consent or approval is required under this Agreement, such action, consent or approval shall be deemed to have been taken or given on behalf of, and shall be binding upon, all Noteholders if the Majority Noteholders agree to take such action or give such consent or approval.

Section 10.05.  Recordation of Agreement.  To the extent permitted by applicable law, this Agreement, or a memorandum thereof if permitted under applicable law, is subject to recordation in all appropriate public offices for real property records in all of the counties or other comparable jurisdictions in which any or all of the properties subject to the Mortgages are situated, and in any other appropriate public recording office or elsewhere, such recordation to be effected by the Depositor on direction and at the expense of Holders of not less than 66-2/3% of the Note Principal Balance of the Notes and of the Holder of the Ownership Certificate requesting such recordation, but only when accompanied by an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such recordation materially and beneficially affects the interests of the Noteholders, or is necessary for the admi nistration or servicing of the Mortgage Loans.

Section 10.06.  Governing Law.  THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, WITHOUT REFERENCE TO ITS CONFLICT OF LAW PROVISIONS (OTHER THAN SECTION 5-1401 OF THE GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW), AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS.
