1.

Recitals Incorporated; Certain Defined Terms.  The recitals set forth above are incorporated into this Amendment and shall be deemed terms and provisions hereof, the same as if fully set forth in this Section 1.  All capitalized terms used herein but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Agreement.

2.

Deposit Money.  On or before December 2, 2010, Buyer shall deposit with Escrow Agent the additional $300,000.00 of the Deposit (resulting in an aggregate Deposit of $500,000.00) to be held and disbursed in accordance with Article 12 of the Agreement.

3.

4.

Limited Extension of Due Diligence.  Buyer hereby waives its right to terminate the Agreement pursuant to Article 4 of the Agreement.  Buyer certifies that it has engaged EMG to prepare updates (the “Updates”) of the Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments described on Appendix 2 attached hereto (the “Existing Reports”).  Buyer covenants to use reasonable efforts to ensure that the Updates are completed and delivered on or before December 10, 2010.  Notwithstanding the first sentence of this Section 4, if Buyer is not reasonably satisfied with the Updates or the Updates are not delivered to Buyer on or before December 10, 2010, Buyer may terminate the Agreement in its entirety by written notice to Seller given in accordance with the provisions of Section 13.9 of the Agreement at any ti me prior to 5:00 p.m. Central Time on December 10, 2010, and, in the event of such termination, neither Seller nor Buyer shall have any liability under the Agreement except for those obligations which expressly survive the termination of the Agreement, and Buyer shall be entitled to the return of the Deposit.  Buyer acknowledges and agrees that, (i) unless the Updates reflect one or more material issues or concerns related to the Property that are not reflected in the Existing Reports, or (ii) if Buyer



EAST\43915120.4




receives verbal confirmation from EMG that the Updates when issued will not reflect any material issues or concerns related to the Property that are not reflected in the Existing Reports (and a commitment from EMG that written Updates consistent with the foregoing will be delivered to Buyer prior to Closing), then, in the case of clause (i) or (ii) above, Buyer shall be deemed to be satisfied with the Updates and Buyer shall be deemed to have waived its rights to terminate the Agreement in accordance with this Section 4.  In addition, if Buyer fails to terminate the Agreement prior to 5:00 p.m. Central Time on December 10, 2010, Buyer shall be deemed to have waived its rights to terminate the Agreement in accordance with this Section 4.

5.

Seller’s Representations.  Section 8.2 of the Agreement is modified to add a new Seller representation as Section 8.2.8 immediately following current Section 8.2.7, which new Section 8.2.8 reads as follows:

“8.2.8

Repurchase Obligation Agreement.  The “Repurchase Price” and the “Buyback %” reflected on Exhibit B to the form of Repurchase Obligation Agreement attached hereto as Appendix 1 reflect the same amounts and percentages, respectively, to which Seller would be subject under the 21st Agreements if Seller were subject to a Repossession Purchase Obligation under the 21st Agreements”.

In addition, Appendix 1 attached hereto is hereby added to the end of the Agreement as Appendix 1 and any references in the Agreement, as modified by this Amendment, to Appendix 1 shall mean Appendix 1 attached hereto.

6.

7.

Effect of Amendment.  This Amendment modifies and amends the Agreement and the terms and provisions hereof shall supersede and control over any contrary or conflicting terms and provisions set forth in the Agreement.  The Agreement, as amended by this Amendment, is in full force and effect.

8.

Counterparts.  This Amendment may be executed in multiple counterparts, each of which, when assembled to include an original signature for each party contemplated to sign this Amendment, will constitute a complete and fully executed original.  All such fully executed original counterparts will collectively constitute a single agreement.  Each counterpart may be delivered by facsimile transmission.

This Repurchase Obligation Agreement (this “ROA”), dated December __, 2010 (the “Effective Date”), is by and between ARCPA PROPERTIES LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“ARCPA”), ARC Dealership LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Dealership"), Enspire Finance, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Enspire"), UMH PROPERTIES, INC., a Maryland corporation (“UMH”), and joined by 21st Mortgage Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("21st), as to its acknowledgement of this ROA.   

RECITALS

A.

ARCPA and UMH have entered into that certain Purchase and Sale Agreement dated effective as of October 31, 2010 (the “Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which ARCPA is selling to UMH, and UMH is purchasing from ARCPA all of ARCPA’s right, title and interest in and to the Property, as defined in the Purchase Agreement (the “Property”), which Property is comprised of those certain parcels referenced in Exhibit A attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference, for and in consideration and on the terms set forth in the Purchase Agreement.

B.

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, UMH and ARCPA have acknowledged and agreed that the "Recourse Notes" (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) shall be transferred to UMH as part of the purchase and sale transaction unless ARCPA causes Dealership and/or Enspire (collectively referred to herein as "ARC") to assign to UMH and UMH assumes certain obligations of ARC with respect to such Recourse Notes that are secured by liens on the manufactured homes (each a "Home") located at the Property (the "Repurchase Obligation").  

C.

UMH hereby elects to assume the Repurchase Obligation of ARC with respect to the Recourse Notes specifically referenced on Exhibit B attached hereto (the "PA 5 Notes)". Accordingly, ARCPA will not cause ARC to transfer the PA 5 Notes to UMH at the closing of the Purchase Agreement and the PA 5 Notes will continue to be owned by 21st.  

D.

The execution of this ROA in a form acceptable to ARCPA and UMH is a condition precedent to the satisfaction of the 21st Assumption Conditions (as defined in the Purchase Agreement).  

AGREEMENT

NOW, THEREFORE, this ROA is made in consideration of the respective representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained in the Purchase Agreement and each of the parties to this ROA agrees as follows:

1.1

Assignment of Repurchase Obligation.  For the consideration as provided in the Purchase Agreement, ARC hereby transfers, conveys and assigns to UMH, and UMH hereby assumes and accepts from ARC, all of ARC’s right, title, interest and obligation in and to the Repurchase Obligation in connection with the PA 5 Notes.

1.2

 Repurchase Obligation.  In connection with UMH's assumption of the Repurchase Obligation under this ROA, UMH agrees to the following:   

(a)

Reserves.  UMH agrees, as of the Closing Date (as defined in the Purchase Agreement), to fund to a reserve with 21st an amount equal to 20% of the then unpaid aggregate principal balance of the PA 5 Notes to secure the Repurchase Obligation set forth herein.  Thereafter, on a quarterly basis (as of the end of each calendar quarter period), UMH and 21st shall perform a true-up of the then unpaid aggregate principal balance of the PA 5 Notes and 21st shall refund the applicable amount, if any, necessary to maintain 20% reserve ratio set forth above.  

(b)

Repurchase Obligation- Notes.  The PA 5 Notes as listed in Exhibit B are comprised of the "MHDA-PA 5 Notes" and the "LPA-PA 5 Notes" and the following shall apply to each, respectively:

(i) MHDA-PA 5 Notes.  If 21st provides written notice within one hundred eighty (180) days of 21st's purchase of any MHDA-PA 5 Note that such note has defaulted before two monthly payments were paid thereunder, UMH will repurchase such defaulted MHDA-PA 5 Note at 21st's Payoff. For purposes of this paragraph 1.2(b)(i), "21st's Payoff" shall mean the customer's original outstanding principal balance: (1) minus, the cumulative principal portion of each payment received from customer prior to such payoff date to reduce such principal balance, (2) minus, any other principal balance that has been written off or otherwise reduced prior to such payoff date, (3) plus, accrued interest, but not to exceed 120 days of accrued interest, unless there has been filed a bankruptcy petition by or against the customer, or customer and 21st, or customer, 21st, Dealership and/or UMH have been involved in a lawsuit that delays 21st’s ability to cause the defaulted MHDA-PA 5 Note to be repurchased, (4) plus, any amounts paid by 21st and owed (but not paid) by customer for insurances and/or taxes as of such payoff date, (5) minus, any amounts remaining in any insurance and/or tax escrow account of 21st as of such payoff date, and (vi) plus, any reasonable legal fees, late fees, and/or such other fees permissible under the terms of the defaulted MHDA-PA 5 Note.

(ii) LPA-PA 5 Notes:  If any LPA-PA 5 Note defaults prior to January 23, 2011, then, within 30 days following receipt of notice of such default, UMH will repurchase such defaulted LPA-PA 5 Note at the "Pre-January 23, 2011 Repurchase Price" set forth for such LPA-PA 5 Note on Exhibit B attached hereto.

(c)

Repurchase Obligation- Home.  

(i)  Notice.  In the event of a default under a PA 5 Note other than as specified in Section 1.2(b) above, 21st will notify UMH of such repurchase default event, including sufficient information to identify the Home to be repurchased by UMH, the present location of the Home and the outstanding balance of the Note (the “Repurchase Default Notice”).

(ii)  Repurchase Following Repossession.  Upon confirmation that a Home securing any such defaulted PA 5 Note has been repossessed, 21st will provide written notice to

 UMH of the Repossession (the "Repossession Notice") and demand the purchase price amount, calculated by multiplying the applicable buyback percentage for such Home (as set forth in Exhibit B) by the applicable 21st Payoff Amount for the Home (the "Defaulted Loan Repurchase Price").  UMH will deliver the Defaulted Loan Repurchase Price to 21st within 14 days of 21st's delivery of the Repossession Notice.  Upon payment in full of the Defaulted Loan Repurchase Price, clear title of the Home will pass to UMH.

For purposes hereof, (i) "Repossession" shall mean a judicial or voluntary, non-judicial possession or exercise of any other remedy in which possession of a Home securing or related to a PA 5 Note is transferred from Obligor under the Note to 21st and (ii) "21st Payoff Amount" shall mean the original outstanding principal balance of the PA 5 Note secured by such Home: (1) minus, the cumulative principal portion of each payment received prior to such payoff date to reduce such principal balance, (2) minus, any other principal balance that has been written off or otherwise reduced prior to such payoff date, (3) plus, accrued interest, but not to exceed 120 days of accrued interest, unless (A) there has been filed a bankruptcy petition by or against any of the respective Obligor(s) under such PA 5 Note or (B) t he Obligor, 21st and UMH have been involved in a lawsuit or other proceedings that delays 21st's ability to cause UMH to repurchase a Home, in which case there shall be no cap on accrued interest, (4) plus, any amounts paid by 21st and owed (but not paid) by the respective Obligor(s) for insurances and/or taxes as of such payoff date, (5) minus, any amounts remaining in any insurance and/or tax escrow account of 21st as of such payoff date, and (6) plus, any reasonable legal fees, late fees, and/or such other fees permissible under the terms of the PA 5 Note.  For purposes hereof, "Obligor" shall mean the person or persons obligated to repay the PA 5 Note.

(iii)  Sale Without Recourse.  In the event of a repurchase contemplated in this Section 1.2(c), UMH shall take all reasonable actions requested by 21st for an orderly sale of the respective Home to UMH and any such sale and transfer by 21st in connection with such a repurchase shall be without recourse to, or representation or warranty from, 21st.


1.3

Dissociation.

As of the Effective Date, neither ARCPA nor ARC, nor any of their affiliates, shall have any obligation to UMH with respect to the PA 5 Notes or to any party with respect to the Repurchase Obligations set forth in Section 1.2 above.
