ARTICLE II CONVEYANCE OF MORTGAGE LOANS; ORIGINAL ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATES SECTION 2.01 Conveyance of Mortgage Loans. The Depositor, concurrently with the execution and delivery hereof, does hereby transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey in trust to the Trustee without recourse for the benefit of the Certificateholders all the right, title and interest of the Depositor, including any security interest therein for the benefit of the Depositor, in and to (i) each Mortgage Loan identified on the Mortgage Loan Schedule, including the related Cut-off Date Principal Balance, all interest accruing thereon on and after the Cut-off Date and all collections in respect of interest and principal due after the Cut-off Date; (ii) property which secured each such Mortgage Loan and which has been acquired by foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure; (iii) its interest in any insurance policies in respect of the Mortgage Loans; (iv) the rights of the Depositor under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement, (v) the right to receive any amounts payable under the Cap Contract and the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, (vi) all other assets included or to be included in the Trust Fund and (vii) all proceeds of any of the foregoing. Such assignment includes all interest and principal due and collected by the Depositor or the Servicer after the Cut-off Date with respect to the Mortgage Loans. In connection with such transfer and assignment, the Depositor, does hereby deliver to, and deposit with the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee, the following documents or instruments with respect to each Initial Mortgage Loan so transferred and assigned, and in accordance with Section 2.08, deliver or caused to be delivered to the Trustee with respect to each Subsequent Mortgage Loan, the following documents or instruments (with respect to each Mortgage Loan, a "Mortgage File"): (i) the original Mortgage Note, endorsed either (A) in blank, or (B) in the following form: "Pay to the order of [________________], as Trustee, without recourse" or with respect to any lost Mortgage Note, an original Lost Note Affidavit stating that the original mortgage note was lost, misplaced or destroyed, together with a copy of the related mortgage note; provided, however, that such substitutions of Lost Note Affidavits for original Mortgage Notes may occur only with respect to Mortgage Loans, the aggregate Cut-off Date Principal Balance of which is less than or equal to 1.00% of the Pool Balance as of the Cut-off Date; (ii) the original Mortgage with evidence of recording thereon, and the original recorded power of attorney, if the Mortgage was executed pursuant to a power of attorney, with evidence of recording thereon or, if such Mortgage or power of attorney has been submitted for recording but has not been returned from the applicable public recording office, has been lost or is not otherwise available, a copy of such Mortgage or power of attorney, as the case may be, certified to be a true and complete copy of the original submitted for recording; (iii) an original Assignment, in form and substance acceptable for recording. The Mortgage shall be assigned either (A) in blank or (B) to "[________________], as Trustee, without recourse"; (iv) an original copy of any intervening assignment of Mortgage showing a complete chain of assignments; (v) the original or a certified copy of lender's title insurance policy; and (vi) the original or copies of each assumption, modification, written assurance or substitution agreement, if any. The Depositor herewith also delivers to the Trustee an executed copy of the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement. If any of the documents referred to in Section 2.01(ii), (iii) or (iv) above has as of the Closing Date (or Subsequent Transfer Date, with respect to Subsequent Mortgage Loans) been submitted for recording but either (x) has not been returned from the applicable public recording office or (y) has been lost or such public recording office has retained the original of such document, the obligations of the Depositor to deliver such documents shall be deemed to be satisfied upon (1) delivery to the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee no later than the Closing Date (or Subsequent Transfer Date, with respect to Subsequent Mortgage Loans), of a copy of each such document certified by the Originator in the case of (x) above or the applicable public recording office in the case of (y) above to be a true and complete copy of the original that was submitted for recording and (2) if such copy is certified by the Originator, delivery to the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee, promptly upon receipt thereof of either the original or a copy of such document certified by the applicable public recording office to be a true and complete copy of the original. If the original lender's title insurance policy, or a certified copy thereof, was not delivered pursuant to Section 2.01(v) above, the Depositor shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee, the original or a copy of a written commitment or interim binder or preliminary report of title issued by the title insurance or escrow company, with the original or a certified copy thereof to be delivered to the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee, promptly upon receipt thereof. The Servicer or the Depositor shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee promptly upon receipt thereof any other documents constituting a part of a Mortgage File received with respect to any Mortgage Loan, including, but not limited to, any original documents evidencing an assumption or modification of any Mortgage Loan. Upon discovery or receipt of notice of any materially defective document in, or that a document is missing from, a Mortgage File, the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) shall notify the Servicer and the Servicer shall enforce the obligations of the Sponsor under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement to cure such defect or deliver such missing document to the Trustee or the Custodian within 120 days. If the Sponsor does not cure such defect or deliver such missing document within such time period, the Servicer shall enforce the obligations of the Sponsor to either repurchase or substitute for such Mortgage Loan in accordance with Section 2.03. In connection with the foregoing, it is understood that the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) shall have no duty to discover any such defects except in the course of performing its review of the Mortgage Files to the extent set forth herein. The Trustee shall enforce the obligations of the Sponsor under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement to cause the Assignments which were delivered in blank to be completed and to record all Assignments referred to in Section 2.01(iii) hereof and, to the extent necessary, in Section 2.01(iv) hereof, and to deliver such assignments for recording within 180 days of the Closing Date. In the event that any such Assignment is lost or returned unrecorded because of a defect therein, the Trustee shall enforce the obligations of the Sponsor under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement to promptly have a substitute Assignment prepared or have such defect cured, as the case may be, and thereafter cause each such Assignment to be duly recorded. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for administrative convenience and facilitation of servicing and to reduce closing costs, the Assignments of Mortgage shall not be required to be submitted for recording (except with respect to any Mortgage Loan located in Maryland) unless the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) and the Depositor receive notice that such failure to record would result in a withdrawal or a downgrading by any Rating Agency of the rating on any Class of Certificates; provided, however, each Assignment shall be submitted for recording in the manner described above, at no expense to the Trust Fund or Trustee, upon the earliest to occur of: (i) reasonable direction by the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights, (ii) the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Termination, (iii) the occurrence of a bankruptcy, insolvency or foreclosure relating to the Sponsor, (iv) the occurrence of a servicing transfer as described in Section 7.02 hereof, (v) upon receipt of notice from the Servicer, the occurrence of a bankruptcy, insolvency or foreclosure relating to the Mortgagor under the related Mortgage, (vi) upon receipt of notice from the Servicer, any Mortgage Loan that is 90 days or more Delinquent and such recordation would be necessary to facilitate conversion of the Mortgaged Property in accordance with Section 3.16 and (vii) reasonable direction by the NIMS Insurer. In the event of (i) through (vi) set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, the Trustee shall enforce the obligations of the Sponsor to deliver such Assignments for recording as provided above, promptly and in any event within 30 days following receipt of notice by the Sponsor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Sponsor fails to pay the cost of recording the Assignments, such expense will be paid by the Trustee (if it reasonably believes it will be reimbursed) and the Trustee shall be reimbursed for such expenses by the Trust. The Servicer shall not be deemed to be in breach of its obligations to service in accordance with the Servicing Standard by any delay in its servicing activities resulting from the failure to submit the Assignments for recording. The Servicer shall forward to the Custodian original documents evidencing an assumption, modification, consolidation or extension of any Mortgage Loan entered into in accordance with this Agreement within two weeks of their execution; provided, however, that the Servicer shall provide the Custodian with a certified true copy of any such document submitted for recordation within two weeks of its execution, and shall provide the original of any document submitted for recordation or a copy of such document certified by the appropriate public recording office to be a true and complete copy of the original within 365 days of its submission for recordation. In the event that the Servicer cannot provide a copy of such document certified by the public recording office within such 365 day period, the Servicer shall deliver to the Custodian, within such 365 day period, an Officers' Certificate of the Servicer which shall (A) identify the recorded document, (B) state that the recorded document has not been delivered to the Custodian due solely to a delay caused by the public recording office, (C) state the amount of time generally required by the applicable recording office to record and return a document submitted for recordation, if known and (D) specify the date the applicable recorded document is expected to be delivered to the Custodian, and, upon receipt of a copy of such document certified by the public recording office, the Servicer shall immediately deliver such document to the Custodian. In the event the appropriate public recording office will not certify as to the accuracy of such document, the Servicer shall deliver a copy of such document certified by an officer of the Servicer to be a true and complete copy of the original to the Custodian. The Depositor shall deliver or cause the Sponsor to deliver (by regular mail) to the Servicer copies of all trailing documents required to be included in the Mortgage File at the same time the originals or certified copies thereof are delivered to the Custodian, such documents including but not limited to the mortgagee policy of title insurance and any mortgage loan documents upon return from the recording office. Except as provided in Section 3.17, the Servicer shall not be responsible for any Custodian fees or other costs incurred in obtaining such documents or for any such costs it may incur in connection with performing its obligations pursuant to this Agreement. The parties hereto understand and agree that it is not intended that any Mortgage Loan be included in the Trust that is a "High-Cost Home Loan" as defined by the Homeownership and Equity Protection Act of 1994 or any other applicable predatory or abusive lending laws. The Depositor hereby directs the Trustee to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement (in its capacity as Supplemental Interest Trust Trustee) and the Cap Contract. The Depositor, the Servicer and the Holders of the Floating Rate Certificates by their acceptance of such Certificates acknowledge and agree that the Trustee shall execute, deliver and perform its obligations under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement and the Cap Contract and shall do so solely in its capacity as Trustee or as Supplemental Interest Trust Trustee, as the case may be, and not in its individual capacity. Every provision of this Agreement relating to the conduct or affecting the liability of or affording protection to the Trustee shall apply to the Trustee's execution of the Interest Rate Swap Agreement and the Cap Contract, and the performance of its duties and satisfaction of its obligations thereunder. SECTION 2.02 Acceptance by Trustee. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.01 and subject to the review described below and any exceptions noted on the exception report described in the next paragraph below, the Trustee acknowledges receipt by it or by a Custodian on its behalf of the documents referred to in Section 2.01 above and all other assets included in the definition of "Trust Fund" and declares that it (or a Custodian on its behalf) holds and will hold such documents and the other documents delivered to it constituting a Mortgage File, and that it holds or will hold all such assets and such other assets included in the definition of "Trust Fund" in trust for the exclusive use and benefit of all present and future Certificateholders. The Trustee agrees that it or a Custodian on its behalf shall, for the benefit of the Certificateholders, review, or that it or a Custodian on its behalf has reviewed pursuant to Section 2.01 each Mortgage File on or prior to the Closing Date, with respect to each Initial Mortgage Loan (or, with respect to any document delivered after the Startup Day, within 45 days of receipt and with respect to any Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan, within 45 days after the assignment thereof). The Trustee further agrees that it or a Custodian on its behalf shall, for the benefit of the Certificateholders, certify to the Depositor and the Servicer (with a copy to the NIMS Insurer) in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit F-1, within 45 days after the Closing Date, with respect to each Initial Mortgage Loan, or on or prior to the Subsequent Transfer Date, with respect to each Subsequent Mortgage Loan (or, with respect to any document delivered after the Startup Day, within 45 days of receipt and with respect to any Qualified Substitute Mortgage, within 45 days after the assignment thereof) that, as to each Mortgage Loan listed in the respective Mortgage Loan Schedule (other than any Mortgage Loan paid in full or any Mortgage Loan specifically identified in the exception report annexed thereto as not being covered by such certification), (i) all documents required to be delivered to it (or a Custodian on its behalf) pursuant to Section 2.01 of this Agreement are in its possession, (ii) such documents have been reviewed by it (or a Custodian on its behalf) and have not been mutilated, damaged or torn and appear on their face to relate to such Mortgage Loan and (iii) based on its examination and only as to the foregoing, the information set forth in the Mortgage Loan Schedule that corresponds to items (1) and (3) of the Mortgage Loan Schedule accurately reflects information set forth in the Mortgage File. It is herein acknowledged that, in conducting such review, the Trustee (or the Custodian, as applicable) is under no duty or obligation to inspect, review or examine any such documents, instruments, certificates or other papers to determine that they are genuine, legally enforceable, valid or binding or appropriate for the represented purpose or that they have actually been recorded or that they are other than what they purport to be on their face. Prior to the first anniversary date of this Agreement the Trustee (or a Custodian on its behalf) shall deliver to the Depositor and the Servicer, with a copy to the NIMS Insurer, a final certification in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit F-2, with any applicable exceptions noted thereon. If in the process of reviewing the Mortgage Files and making or preparing, as the case may be, the certifications referred to above, the Trustee (or the Custodian, as applicable) finds any document or documents constituting a part of a Mortgage File to be missing or not to conform with respect to any characteristics which are within the scope of the Trustee's (or the Custodian's, as applicable) review as provided herein, at the conclusion of its review, the Trustee shall so notify (or cause a Custodian on its behalf to so notify) the Sponsor, the Depositor, the NIMS Insurer and the Servicer upon receipt by the Trustee of written notification of such findings. In addition, upon the discovery by the Depositor, the NIMS Insurer or the Servicer (or upon receipt by the Trustee of written notification of such breach) of a breach of any of the representations and warranties made by the Sponsor in the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement in respect of any Mortgage Loan which materially adversely affects such Mortgage Loan or the interests of the related Certificateholders in such Mortgage Loan, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice to the NIMS Insurer and the other parties to this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, in no event shall the Trustee be liable to any party hereto or to any third party for the performance of any custody-related functions, including without limitation with respect to which the Custodian shall fail to take action on behalf of the Trustee or, with respect to the performance of custody-related functions the Custodian shall fail to satisfy all the related requirements under this Agreement or the Custodial Agreement. The Depositor and the Trustee intend that the assignment and transfer herein contemplated constitute a sale of the Mortgage Loans, the related Mortgage Notes and the related documents, conveying good title thereto free and clear of any liens and encumbrances, from the Depositor to the Trustee in trust for the benefit of the Certificateholders and that such property not be part of the Depositor's estate or property of the Depositor in the event of any insolvency by the Depositor. In the event that such conveyance is deemed to be, or to be made as security for, a loan, the parties intend that the Depositor shall be deemed to have granted and does hereby grant to the Trustee a first priority perfected security interest in all of the Depositor's right, title and interest in and to the Mortgage Loans, the related Mortgage Notes and the related documents, and that this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law. SECTION 2.03 Repurchase or Substitution of Mortgage Loans by the Sponsor. (a) Upon discovery or receipt of written notice of any materially defective document in, or that a document is missing from, a Mortgage File or of the breach by the Sponsor of any representation, warranty or covenant under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement in respect of any Mortgage Loan which materially adversely affects the value of such Mortgage Loan or the interest therein of the Certificateholders, the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) shall promptly notify NIMS Insurer and the Servicer of such defect, missing document or breach and the Servicer shall request that the Sponsor deliver such missing document or cure such defect or breach within 120 days from the date the Sponsor was notified of such missing document, defect or breach, and if the Sponsor does not deliver such missing document or cure such defect or breach in all material respects during such period, the Servicer shall enforce the Sponsor's obligation under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement and notify the Sponsor of its obligation to repurchase such Mortgage Loan from the Trust Fund at the Purchase Price on or prior to the Determination Date following the expiration of such 120 day period (subject to Section 2.03(e)); provided that, in connection with any such breach that could not reasonably have been cured within such 120 day period, if the Sponsor has commenced to cure such breach within such 120 day period, the Sponsor shall be permitted to proceed thereafter diligently and expeditiously to cure the same within the additional period provided under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement. The Purchase Price for the repurchased Mortgage Loan shall be remitted to the Servicer for deposit in the Collection Account, and the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee), upon receipt of written certification from the Servicer of such deposit, shall release to the Sponsor the related Mortgage File and shall execute and deliver such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, as the Sponsor shall furnish to it and as shall be necessary to vest in the Sponsor any Mortgage Loan released pursuant hereto and the Trustee shall have no further responsibility with regard to such Mortgage File (it being understood that neither the Trustee nor the Custodian shall any responsibility for determining the sufficiency of such assignment for its intended purpose). In lieu of repurchasing any such Mortgage Loan as provided above, the Sponsor may cause such Mortgage Loan to be removed from the Trust Fund (in which case it shall become a Deleted Mortgage Loan) and substitute one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans in the manner and subject to the limitations set forth in Section 2.03(d); provided, however, the Sponsor may not substitute for any Mortgage Loan which breaches a representation or warranty regarding abusive or predatory lending laws. It is understood and agreed that the obligation of the Sponsor to cure or to repurchase (or to substitute for) any Mortgage Loan as to which a document is missing, a material defect in a constituent document exists or as to which such a breach has occurred and is continuing shall constitute the sole remedy against the Sponsor respecting such omission, defect or breach available to the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders. (b) Within 90 days of the earlier of discovery by the Depositor or receipt of notice by the Depositor of the breach of any representation, warranty or covenant of the Depositor set forth in Section 2.06, which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Certificateholders in any Mortgage Loan, the Depositor shall cure such breach in all material respects. (c) Within 90 days of the earlier of discovery by the Servicer or receipt of notice by the Servicer of the breach of any representation, warranty or covenant of the Servicer set forth in Section 2.05 which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Certificateholders in any Mortgage Loan, the Servicer shall cure such breach in all material respects. (d) Any substitution of Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for Deleted Mortgage Loans made pursuant to Section 2.03(a) must be effected prior to the last Business Day that is within two years after the Closing Date. As to any Deleted Mortgage Loan for which the Sponsor substitutes a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, such substitution shall be effected by the Sponsor delivering to the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee), for such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, the Mortgage Note, the Mortgage and the Assignment to the Trustee in blank and such other documents and agreements, with all necessary endorsements thereon, as are required by Section 2.01, together with an Officers' Certificate providing that each such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan satisfies the definition thereof and specifying the Substitution Adjustment (as described below), if any, in connection with such substitution. The Trustee (or a Custodian on its behalf) shall acknowledge receipt for such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans and, within 45 days thereafter, shall review such documents as specified in Section 2.02 and deliver to the Servicer, with respect to such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, a certification substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit F-1 (with a copy to the NIMS Insurer), with any applicable exceptions noted thereon. Within one year of the date of substitution, the Trustee (or the Custodian on its behalf) shall deliver to the Servicer a certification substantially in the form of Exhibit F-2 hereto (with a copy to the NIMS Insurer) with respect to such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, with any applicable exceptions noted thereon. Monthly Payments due with respect to Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans in the month of substitution are not part of the Trust Fund and will be retained by the Sponsor. For the month of substitution, distributions to Certificateholders will reflect the collections and recoveries in respect of such Deleted Mortgage Loan in the Due Period preceding the month of substitution and the Sponsor shall thereafter be entitled to retain all amounts subsequently received in respect of such Deleted Mortgage Loan. The Servicer shall give or cause to be given written notice to the NIMS Insurer and the Trustee, who shall forward such notice to the Certificateholders, that such substitution has taken place, shall amend the Mortgage Loan Schedule to reflect the removal of such Deleted Mortgage Loan from the terms of this Agreement and the substitution of the Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans and shall deliver a copy of such amended Mortgage Loan Schedule to the NIMS Insurer and the Trustee. Upon such substitution by the Sponsor such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans shall constitute part of the Mortgage Pool and shall be subject in all respects to the terms of this Agreement and the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement, including all applicable representations and warranties thereof included in the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement as of the date of substitution. For any month in which the Sponsor substitutes one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for one or more Deleted Mortgage Loans, the Servicer will determine the amount (the "Substitution Adjustment"), if any, by which the aggregate Purchase Price of all such Deleted Mortgage Loans exceeds the aggregate, as to each such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan, of the Stated Principal Balance thereof as of the date of substitution, together with one month's interest on such Stated Principal Balance at the applicable Mortgage Rate. On the date of such substitution, the Sponsor will deliver or cause to be delivered to the Servicer for deposit in the Collection Account an amount equal to the Substitution Adjustment, if any, and the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee), upon receipt of the related Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans and certification by the Servicer of such deposit, shall release to the Sponsor the related Mortgage File or Files and shall execute and deliver such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, as the Sponsor shall deliver to it and as shall be necessary to vest therein any Deleted Mortgage Loan released pursuant hereto. In addition, the Sponsor shall obtain at its own expense and deliver to the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such substitution will not cause (a) any federal tax to be imposed on the Trust Fund, including without limitation, any federal tax imposed on "prohibited transactions" under Section 860F(a)(I) of the Code or on "contributions after the startup date" under Section 860G(d)(I) of the Code or (b) any REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any Certificate is outstanding. If such Opinion of Counsel can not be delivered, then such substitution may only be effected at such time as the required Opinion of Counsel can be given. (e) Upon discovery by the Depositor, the Servicer, the NIMS Insurer or the Trustee that any Mortgage Loan does not constitute a "qualified mortgage" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code, the party discovering such fact shall within two Business Days give written notice thereof to the other parties hereto. In connection therewith, the Sponsor or the Depositor, as the case may be, shall repurchase or, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 2.03(d), substitute one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for the affected Mortgage Loan within 90 days of the earlier of discovery or receipt of such notice with respect to such affected Mortgage Loan. Such repurchase or substitution shall be made (i) by the Sponsor if the affected Mortgage Loan's status as a non-qualified mortgage is or results from a breach of any representation, warranty or covenant made by the Sponsor under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement or (ii) the Depositor, if the affected Mortgage Loan's status as a non-qualified mortgage is a breach of any representation or warranty of the Depositor set forth in Section 2.06, or if its status as a non-qualified mortgage is a breach of no representation or warranty. Any such repurchase or substitution shall be made in the same manner as set forth in Section 2.03(a) or 2.03(d), if made by the Sponsor, or Section 2.03(b), if made by the Depositor. The Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) shall reconvey to the Depositor or the Sponsor, as the case may be, the Mortgage Loan to be released pursuant hereto in the same manner, and on the same terms and conditions, as it would a Mortgage Loan repurchased for breach of a representation or warranty. SECTION 2.04 Intentionally Omitted. SECTION 2.05 Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Servicer. The Servicer hereby represents, warrants and covenants to the Trustee, for the benefit of each of the Trustee and the Certificateholders, and to the Depositor, that as of the Closing Date or as of such date specifically provided herein: (i) The Servicer is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of Delaware and is an operating subsidiary of National City Bank of Indiana.

The trust is hereby authorized to engage in the foregoing activities. The Trustee shall not cause the trust to engage in any activity other than in connection with the foregoing or other than as required or authorized by the terms of this Agreement while any Certificate is outstanding, and this Section 2.07 may not be amended, without the consent of the Certificateholders evidencing 51% or more of the aggregate voting rights of the Certificates. ARTICLE III ADMINISTRATION AND SERVICING OF THE MORTGAGE LOANS SECTION 3.01 Servicer to Act as Servicer. The Servicer shall service and administer the Mortgage Loans on behalf of the Trust and in the best interests of and for the benefit of the Certificateholders (as determined by the Servicer in its reasonable judgment) in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Mortgage Loans and, to the extent consistent with such terms, in the same manner in which it services and administers similar mortgage loans for its own portfolio, giving due consideration to customary and usual standards of practice of mortgage lenders and loan servicers administering similar mortgage loans but without regard to: (i) any relationship that the Servicer, any Sub-Servicer or any Affiliate of the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer may have with the related Mortgagor; (ii) the ownership or non-ownership of any Certificate by the Servicer or any Affiliate of the Servicer; (iii) the Servicer's obligation to make Advances or Servicing Advances; or (iv) the Servicer's or any Sub-Servicer's right to receive compensation for its services hereunder or with respect to any particular transaction. To the extent consistent with the foregoing, the Servicer (a) shall seek the timely and complete recovery of principal and interest on the Mortgage Notes and (b) shall waive (or permit a Sub-Servicer to waive) a Prepayment Charge only under the following circumstances: (i) such waiver is standard and customary in servicing similar Mortgage Loans and (ii) such waiver relates to a default or a reasonably foreseeable default and would, in the reasonable judgment of the Servicer, maximize recovery of total proceeds taking into account the value of such Prepayment Charge and the related Mortgage Loan or (iii) the collection of such Prepayment Charge would be in violation of applicable laws. If a Prepayment Charge is waived as permitted by meeting the standard described in clause (iii) above, then the Servicer shall make commercially reasonable efforts to enforce the Trustee's rights under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement including the obligation of the Sponsor to pay the amount of such waived Prepayment Charge to the Servicer for deposit in the Collection Account for the benefit of the Holders of the Class P Certificates. If the Servicer makes a good faith determination that the Servicer's efforts are not reasonably expected to be successful in enforcing such rights, it shall notify the Trustee of such failure, and the Trustee, with the cooperation of the Servicer, shall enforce the obligation of the Sponsor under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement to pay to the Servicer the amount of such waived Prepayment Charge. If the Sponsor fails to pay the amount of such waived Prepayment Charge in accordance with its obligations under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement, the Trustee, the Servicer and the Depositor shall consult on further actions to be taken against the Sponsor. Subject only to the above-described servicing standards and the terms of this Agreement and of the Mortgage Loans, the Servicer shall have full power and authority, acting alone or through Sub-Servicers as provided in Section 3.02, to do or cause to be done any and all things in connection with such servicing and administration which it may deem necessary or desirable. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer, in the name of the Trust Fund, is hereby authorized and empowered by the Trustee when the Servicer believes it appropriate in its best judgment in accordance with the Servicing Standard, to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Certificateholders and the Trustee, 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 the Mortgaged Properties and to institute foreclosure proceedings or obtain a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure so as to convert the ownership of such properties, and to hold or cause to be held title to such properties, on behalf of the Trustee and Certificateholders. The Servicer shall service and administer the Mortgage Loans in accordance with applicable state and federal law and shall provide to the Mortgagors any reports required to be provided to them thereby. The Servicer shall also comply in the performance of this Agreement with all reasonable rules and requirements of each insurer under any standard hazard insurance policy. Subject to Section 3.17, on the Closing Date, the Trustee shall execute and furnish to the Servicer and any Sub-Servicer any special or limited powers of attorney and other documents necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer to carry out their servicing and administrative duties hereunder; provided, such limited powers of attorney or other documents shall be prepared by the Servicer and submitted to the Trustee for execution. The Trustee shall not be liable for the actions by the Servicer or any Sub-Servicers under such powers of attorney. Subject to Section 3.09 hereof, in accordance with the standards of the preceding paragraph, the Servicer, on escrowed accounts, shall advance or cause to be advanced funds as necessary for the purpose of effecting the payment of taxes and assessments on the Mortgaged Properties, which advances shall be Servicing Advances reimbursable in the first instance from related collections from the Mortgagors pursuant to Section 3.09, and further as provided in Section 3.11. Any cost incurred by the Servicer or by Sub-Servicers in effecting the payment of taxes and assessments on a Mortgaged Property shall not, for the purpose of calculating distributions to Certificateholders, be added to the unpaid Stated Principal Balance of the related Mortgage Loan, notwithstanding that the terms of such Mortgage Loan so permit. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Servicer may not make any future advances with respect to a Mortgage Loan (except as provided in Section 4.04) and the Servicer shall not (i) permit any modification with respect to any Mortgage Loan that would change the Mortgage Rate, reduce or increase the Stated Principal Balance (except for reductions resulting from actual payments of principal) or change the final maturity date on such Mortgage Loan (unless, in any such case, as provided in Section 3.07, the Mortgagor is in default with respect to the Mortgage Loan or such default is, in the judgment of the Servicer, reasonably foreseeable) or (ii) permit any modification, waiver or amendment of any term of any Mortgage Loan that would both (A) effect an exchange or reissuance of such Mortgage Loan under Section 1001 of the Code (or Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder) and (B) cause any REMIC created hereunder to fail to qualify as a REMIC under the Code or the imposition of any tax on "prohibited transactions" or "contributions after the startup date" under the REMIC Provisions. The Servicer shall also undertake to defend, with respect to a claim against the Trustee or the Trust, any claims against the Trust, the Trustee or itself by a Mortgagor which relate to or affect the servicing of any Mortgage Loan. This shall not be construed as an assumption of liability in such matters. The Trustee shall notify the Servicer of any such claim as soon as practicable after receiving notice of such claim. The Servicer shall not be liable for any delay in responding to any claim of which it has not received timely notice. The Trustee shall cooperate with the Servicer in all aspects of the defense of such claims, including the timely delivery of all relevant litigation files and other related information. In the event the Servicer acts on behalf of the Trustee, the Trust or itself in any such litigation, the Trust shall pay all costs and expenses (including attorneys' fees, court costs, settlements and judgments) associated with the defense and management of such claim; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not be indemnified for any such cost or expense relating to claims against the Servicer and incurred by reason of its willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of its duties hereunder. SECTION 3.02 Sub-Servicing Agreements Between Servicer and Sub-Servicers. (a) The Servicer may enter into Sub-Servicing Agreements with Sub-Servicers, which may be Affiliates of the Servicer, for the servicing and administration of the Mortgage Loans; provided, however, (i) such sub-servicing arrangement and the terms of the related Sub-Servicing Agreement must provide for the servicing of the Mortgage Loans in a manner consistent with the servicing arrangement contemplated hereunder and (ii) the NIMS Insurer shall have consented to such sub-servicing agreement. The Trustee is hereby authorized to acknowledge, at the request of the Servicer, any Sub-Servicing Agreement. No such acknowledgment shall be deemed to imply that the Trustee has consented to any such Sub-Servicing Agreement, has passed upon whether such Sub-Servicing Agreement meets the requirements applicable to Sub-Servicing Agreements set forth in this Agreement or has passed upon whether such Sub-Servicing Agreement is otherwise permitted under this Agreement. Each Sub-Servicer shall be (i) authorized to transact business 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 Sub-Servicer to perform its obligations hereunder and under the Sub-Servicing Agreement and (ii) a Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae approved mortgage servicer. Each Sub-Servicing Agreement must impose on the Sub-Servicer requirements conforming to the provisions set forth in Section 3.08 and provide for servicing of the Mortgage Loans consistent with the terms of this Agreement. The Servicer will examine each Sub-Servicing Agreement and will be familiar with the terms thereof. The terms of any Sub-Servicing Agreement will not be inconsistent with any of the provisions of this Agreement. Any variation in any Sub-Servicing Agreements from the provisions set forth in Section 3.08 relating to insurance or priority requirements of Sub-Servicing Accounts, or credits and charges to the Sub-Servicing Accounts or the timing and amount of remittances by the Sub-Servicers to the Servicer, are conclusively deemed to be inconsistent with this Agreement and therefore prohibited. The Servicer shall deliver to the NIMS Insurer and the Trustee copies of all Sub-Servicing Agreements, and any amendments or modifications thereof, promptly upon the Servicer's execution and delivery of such instruments. (b) As part of its servicing activities hereunder, the Servicer, for the benefit of the Trustee and the Certificateholders, shall enforce the obligations of each Sub-Servicer under the related Sub-Servicing Agreement, including, without limitation, any obligation to make advances in respect of delinquent payments as required by a Sub-Servicing Agreement. Such enforcement, including, without limitation, the legal prosecution of claims, termination of Sub-Servicing Agreements, 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 Servicer, in its good faith business judgment, would require were it the owner of the related Mortgage Loans. The Servicer shall pay the costs of such enforcement at its own expense, and shall be reimbursed therefor only (i) from a general recovery resulting from such enforcement, to the extent, if any, that such recovery exceeds all amounts due in respect of the related Mortgage Loans, or (ii) from a specific recovery of costs, expenses or attorneys' fees against the party against whom such enforcement is directed. SECTION 3.03 Successor Sub-Servicers. The Servicer, with the consent of the NIMS Insurer, shall be entitled to terminate any Sub-Servicing Agreement and the rights and obligations of any Sub-Servicer pursuant to any Sub-Servicing Agreement in accordance with the terms and conditions of such Sub-Servicing Agreement. In the event of termination of any Sub-Servicer, all servicing obligations of such Sub-Servicer shall be assumed simultaneously by the Servicer without any act or deed on the part of such Sub-Servicer or the Servicer, and the Servicer either shall service directly the related Mortgage Loans or shall enter into a Sub-Servicing Agreement with a successor Sub-Servicer which qualifies under Section 3.02. Any Sub-Servicing Agreement shall include the provision that such agreement may be immediately terminated by the Servicer or the Trustee (if the Trustee is acting as Servicer) without fee, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, in the event that the Servicer (or the Trustee, if such party is then acting as Servicer) shall, for any reason, no longer be the Servicer (including termination due to a Servicer Event of Termination). SECTION 3.04 Liability of the Servicer. Notwithstanding any Sub-Servicing Agreement or the provisions of this Agreement relating to agreements or arrangements between the Servicer and a Sub-Servicer or reference to actions taken through a Sub-Servicer or otherwise, the Servicer shall remain obligated and primarily liable to the Trustee and the Certificateholders for the servicing and administering of the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.01 without diminution of such obligation or liability by virtue of such Sub-Servicing Agreements or arrangements or by virtue of indemnification from the Sub-Servicer and to the same extent and under the same terms and conditions as if the Servicer alone were servicing and administering the Mortgage Loans. The Servicer shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with a Sub-Servicer for indemnification of the Servicer by such Sub-Servicer and nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification. SECTION 3.05 No Contractual Relationship Between Sub-Servicers and the NIMS Insurer, the Trustee or Certificateholders. Any Sub-Servicing Agreement that may be entered into and any transactions or services relating to the Mortgage Loans involving a Sub-Servicer in its capacity as such shall be deemed to be between the Sub-Servicer and the Servicer alone, and the NIMS Insurer, the Trustee or Certificateholders shall not be deemed parties thereto and shall have no claims, rights, obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to the Sub-Servicer except as set forth in Section 3.06. The Servicer shall be solely liable for all fees owed by it to any Sub-Servicer, irrespective of whether the Servicer's compensation pursuant to this Agreement is sufficient to pay such fees. SECTION 3.06 Assumption or Termination of Sub-Servicing Agreements by Trustee. In the event the Servicer shall for any reason no longer be the servicer (including by reason of the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Termination), the Trustee, pursuant to its duties under Section 7.02, shall thereupon assume all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer under each Sub-Servicing Agreement that the Servicer may have entered into, unless the Trustee elects to terminate any Sub-Servicing Agreement in accordance with its terms as provided in Section 3.03. Upon such assumption, the Trustee (or the successor servicer appointed pursuant to Section 7.02) shall be deemed, subject to Section 3.03, to have assumed all of the departing Servicer's interest therein and to have replaced the departing Servicer as a party to each Sub-Servicing Agreement to the same extent as if each Sub-Servicing Agreement had been assigned to the assuming party, except that (i) the departing Servicer shall not thereby be relieved of any liability or obligations under any Sub-Servicing Agreement that arose before it ceased to be the Servicer and (ii) neither the Trustee nor any successor Servicer shall be deemed to have assumed any liability or obligation of the Servicer that arose before it ceased to be the Servicer. The Servicer at its expense shall, upon request of the Trustee, deliver to the assuming party all documents and records relating to each Sub-Servicing Agreement and the Mortgage Loans then being serviced and an accounting of amounts collected and held by or on behalf of it, and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the Sub-Servicing Agreements to the assuming party. All Servicing Transfer Costs shall be paid by the predecessor Servicer upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs, and if such predecessor Servicer defaults in its obligation to pay such costs, such costs shall be paid by the successor Servicer or the Trustee (in which case the successor Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, shall be entitled to reimbursement therefor from the assets of the Trust). SECTION 3.07 Collection of Certain Mortgage Loan Payments. The Servicer shall make reasonable efforts, in accordance with the Servicing Standard, to collect all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Mortgage Loans and the provisions of any applicable insurance policies provided to the Servicer. Consistent with the foregoing, the Servicer may in its discretion (i) waive any late payment charge or, if applicable, any penalty interest, or any provisions of any Mortgage Loan requiring the related Mortgagor to submit to mandatory arbitration with respect to disputes arising thereunder or (ii) extend the due dates for the Monthly Payments due on a Mortgage Note for a period of not greater than 180 days; provided, however, that any extension pursuant to clause (ii) above shall not affect the amortization schedule of any Mortgage Loan for purposes of any computation hereunder, except as provided below. In the event of any such arrangement pursuant to clause (ii) above, the Servicer shall make timely Advances on such Mortgage Loan during such extension pursuant to Section 4.04 and in accordance with the amortization schedule of such Mortgage Loan without modification thereof by reason of such arrangement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any Mortgage Loan is in default or, in the judgment of the Servicer, such default is reasonably foreseeable, the Servicer, consistent with the standards set forth in Section 3.01, may also waive, modify or vary any term of such Mortgage Loan (including modifications that would change the Mortgage Rate, forgive the payment of principal or interest or extend the final maturity date of such Mortgage Loan), accept payment from the related Mortgagor of an amount less than the Stated Principal Balance in final satisfaction of such Mortgage Loan, or consent to the postponement of strict compliance with any such term or otherwise grant indulgence to any Mortgagor (any and all such waivers, modifications, variances, forgiveness of principal or interest, postponements, or indulgences collectively referred to herein as "forbearance"), provided, however, that the NIMS Insurer's prior written consent shall be required for any modification, waiver or amendment if the aggregate number of outstanding Mortgage Loans which have been modified, waived or amended exceeds 5% of the number of Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date. The Servicer's analysis supporting any forbearance and the conclusion that any forbearance meets the standards of Section 3.01 shall be reflected in writing in the Mortgage File. SECTION 3.08 Sub-Servicing Accounts. In those cases where a Sub-Servicer is servicing a Mortgage Loan pursuant to a Sub- Servicing Agreement, the Sub-Servicer will be required to establish and maintain one or more accounts (collectively, the "Sub-Servicing Account"). The Sub-Servicing Account shall be an Eligible Account and shall comply with all requirements of this Agreement relating to the Collection Account. The Sub-Servicer shall deposit in the clearing account in which it customarily deposits payments and collections on mortgage loans in connection with its mortgage loan servicing activities on a daily basis, and in no event more than one Business Day after the Sub-Servicer's receipt thereof, all proceeds of Mortgage Loans received by the Sub-Servicer less its servicing compensation to the extent permitted by the Sub-Servicing Agreement, and shall thereafter deposit such amounts in the Sub-Servicing Account, in no event more than two Business Days after the receipt of such amounts. The Sub-Servicer shall thereafter deposit such proceeds in the Collection Account or remit such proceeds to the Servicer for deposit in the Collection Account not later than two Business Days after the deposit of such amounts in the Sub-Servicing Account. For purposes of this Agreement, the Servicer shall be deemed to have received payments on the Mortgage Loans when the Sub-Servicer receives such payments. SECTION 3.09 Collection of Taxes, Assessments and Similar Items; Escrow Accounts. To the extent required by the related Mortgage Note, the Servicer shall establish and maintain, or cause to be established and maintained, one or more accounts (the "Escrow Accounts"), into which all Escrow Payments shall be deposited and retained. Escrow Accounts shall be Eligible Accounts. The Servicer shall deposit in the clearing account in which it customarily deposits payments and collections on mortgage loans in connection with its mortgage loan servicing activities, all Escrow Payments collected on account of the Mortgage Loans and shall deposit in the Escrow Accounts, in no event more than two Business Days after the receipt of such Escrow Payments, all Escrow Payments collected on account of the Mortgage Loans for the purpose of effecting the payment of any such items as required under the terms of this Agreement. Withdrawals of amounts from an Escrow Account may be made only to (i) effect payment of taxes, assessments, hazard insurance premiums, and comparable items in a manner and at a time that assures that the lien priority of the Mortgage is not jeopardized (or, with respect to the payment of taxes, in a manner and at a time that avoids the loss of the Mortgaged Property due to a tax sale or the foreclosure as a result of a tax lien); (ii) reimburse the Servicer (or a Sub-Servicer to the extent provided in the related Sub-Servicing Agreement) out of related collections for any Servicing Advances made pursuant to Section 3.01 (with respect to taxes and assessments) and Section 3.14 (with respect to hazard insurance); (iii) refund to Mortgagors any sums as may be determined to be overages; (iv) pay interest, if required and as described below, to Mortgagors on balances in the Escrow Account; or (v) clear and terminate the Escrow Account at the termination of the Servicer's obligations and responsibilities in respect of the Mortgage Loans under this Agreement in accordance with Article X. In the event the Servicer shall deposit in a Escrow Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time withdraw such amount from such Escrow Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. The Servicer will be responsible for the administration of the Escrow Accounts and will be obligated to make Servicing Advances to such accounts when and as necessary to avoid the lapse of insurance coverage on the Mortgaged Property, or which the Servicer knows, or in the exercise of the required standard of care of the Servicer hereunder should know, is necessary to avoid the loss of the Mortgaged Property due to a tax sale or the foreclosure as a result of a tax lien. If any such payment has not been made and the Servicer receives notice of a tax lien with respect to the Mortgage being imposed, the Servicer will, within 10 Business Days of receipt of such notice, advance or cause to be advanced funds necessary to discharge such lien on the Mortgaged Property. As part of its servicing duties, the Servicer or any Sub-Servicers shall pay to the Mortgagors interest on funds in the Escrow Accounts, to the extent required by law and, to the extent that interest earned on funds in the Escrow Accounts is insufficient, to pay such interest from its or their own funds, without any reimbursement therefor. The Servicer may pay to itself any excess interest on funds in the Escrow Accounts, to the extent such action is in conformity with the Servicing Standard, is permitted by law and such amounts are not required to be paid to Mortgagors or used for any of the other purposes set forth above. SECTION 3.10 Collection Account and Distribution Account. (a) On behalf of the Trust Fund, the Servicer shall establish and maintain, or cause to be established and maintained, one or more accounts (such account or accounts, the "Collection Account"), held in trust for the benefit of the Trustee and the Certificateholders. On behalf of the Trust Fund, the Servicer shall deposit or cause to be deposited in the Collection Account, in no event more than two Business Days after the Servicer's receipt thereof, as and when received or as otherwise required hereunder, the following payments and collections received or made by it subsequent to the Cut-off Date (other than in respect of principal or interest on the Mortgage Loans due on or before the Cut-off Date) or payments (other than Principal Prepayments) received by it on or prior to the Cut-off Date but allocable to a Due Period subsequent thereto: (i) all payments on account of principal, including Principal Prepayments (but not Prepayment Charges), on the Mortgage Loans; (ii) all payments on account of interest (net of the Servicing Fee) on each Mortgage Loan; (iii) all Insurance Proceeds, Liquidation Proceeds, Subsequent Recoveries and condemnation proceeds (other than proceeds collected in respect of any particular REO Property and amounts paid in connection with a purchase of Mortgage Loans and REO Properties pursuant to Section 10.01); (iv) any amounts required to be deposited pursuant to Section 3.12 in connection with any losses realized on Permitted Investments with respect to funds held in the Collection Account; (v) any amounts required to be deposited by the Servicer pursuant to the second paragraph of Section 3.14(a) in respect of any blanket policy deductibles; (vi) all proceeds of any Mortgage Loan repurchased or purchased in accordance with Section 2.03, Section 3.16(c) or Section 10.01; (vii) all amounts required to be deposited in connection with Substitution Adjustments pursuant to Section 2.03; and (viii) all Prepayment Charges collected by the Servicer and any Servicer Prepayment Charge Payment Amounts in connection with the Principal Prepayment of any of the Mortgage Loans. The foregoing requirements for deposit in the Collection Account shall be exclusive, it being understood and agreed that, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, payments in the nature of Servicing Fees, late payment charges, assumption fees, insufficient funds charges and ancillary income (other than Prepayment Charges) need not be deposited by the Servicer in the Collection Account and may be retained by the Servicer as additional compensation. In the event the Servicer shall deposit in the Collection Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time withdraw such amount from the Collection Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. (b) On behalf of the Trust Fund, the Trustee shall establish and maintain one or more segregated, non-interest bearing trust accounts (such account or accounts, the "Distribution Account"), held in trust for the benefit of the Trustee and the Certificateholders. On behalf of the Trust Fund, the Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee in immediately available funds for deposit in the Distribution Account on or before 1:00 p.m. New York time on the Servicer Remittance Date, that portion of the Available Funds (calculated without regard to the references in the definition thereof to amounts that may be withdrawn from the Distribution Account) for the related Distribution Date then on deposit in the Collection Account, the amount of all Prepayment Charges collected during the applicable Prepayment Period by the Servicer and Servicer Prepayment Charge Payment Amounts in connection with the Principal Prepayment of any of the Mortgage Loans then on deposit in the Collection Account, the amount of any funds reimbursable to an Advancing Person pursuant to Section 3.29 (unless such amounts are to be remitted in another manner as specified in the documentation establishing the related Advance Facility). If, by 1:00 p.m. New York time, on the Servicer Remittance Date, the Servicer fails to remit to the Trustee for deposit into the Distribution Account any amounts required to be so remitted by the Servicer pursuant to this Agreement, the Servicer shall pay to the Trustee, for its own account, interest on such amounts at the prime rate for such date (as set forth in the WALL STREET JOURNAL) for the period commencing on the Servicer Remittance Date through the Business Day on which such failure is remedied. (c) Funds in the Collection Account and the Distribution Account may be invested in Permitted Investments in accordance with the provisions set forth in Section 3.12. The Servicer shall give notice to the NIMS Insurer and the Trustee of the location of the Collection Account maintained by it when established and prior to any change thereof. The Trustee shall give notice to the NIMS Insurer, the Servicer and the Depositor of the location of the Distribution Account when established and prior to any change thereof. (d) Funds held in the Collection Account at any time may be delivered by the Servicer to the Trustee for deposit in an account (which may be the Distribution Account and must satisfy the standards for the Distribution Account as set forth in the definition thereof) and for all purposes of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a part of the Collection Account; provided, however, that the Trustee shall have the sole authority to withdraw any funds held pursuant to this subsection (d). In the event the Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee for deposit in the Distribution Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time request that the Trustee withdraw such amount from the Distribution Account and remit to it any such amount, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. In addition, the Servicer, with respect to items (i) through (iv) below, shall deliver to the Trustee from time to time for deposit, and the Trustee, with respect to items (i) through (iv) below, shall so deposit, in the Distribution Account: (i) any Advances, as required pursuant to Section 4.04; (ii) any amounts required to be deposited pursuant to Section 3.24(d) or (f) in connection with any REO Property; (iii) any amounts to be paid by the Servicer in connection with a purchase of Mortgage Loans and REO Properties pursuant to Section 10.01; (iv) any Compensating Interest to be deposited pursuant to Section 3.25 in connection with any Prepayment Interest Shortfall; and (v) any amounts required to be paid to the Trustee pursuant to the Agreement, including but not limited to Section 3.06 and Section 7.02. SECTION 3.11 Withdrawals from the Collection Account and Distribution Account. (a) The Servicer shall, from time to time, make withdrawals from the Collection Account for any of the following purposes or as described in Section 4.04: (i) to remit to the Trustee for deposit in the Distribution Account the amounts required to be so remitted pursuant to Section 3.10(b) or permitted to be so remitted pursuant to the first sentence of Section 3.10(d); (ii) subject to Section 3.16(d), to reimburse the Servicer for (a) any unreimbursed Advances to the extent of amounts received which represent Late Collections (net of the related Servicing Fees), Liquidation Proceeds and Insurance Proceeds on Mortgage Loans or REO Properties with respect to which such Advances were made in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.04; or (b) without limiting any right of withdrawal set forth in clause (vi) below, any unreimbursed Advances that, upon a Final Recovery Determination with respect to such Mortgage Loan, are Nonrecoverable Advances, but only to the extent that Late Collections (net of the related Servicing Fees), Liquidation Proceeds and Insurance Proceeds received with respect to such Mortgage Loan are insufficient to reimburse the Servicer for such unreimbursed Advances; (iii) subject to Section 3.16(d), to pay the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer (a) any unpaid Servicing Fees, (b) any unreimbursed Servicing Advances with respect to each Mortgage Loan, but only to the extent of any Late Collections, Liquidation Proceeds and Insurance Proceeds received with respect to such Mortgage Loan or REO Property, and (c) without limiting any right of withdrawal set forth in clause (vi) below, any Servicing Advances made with respect to a Mortgage Loan that, upon a Final Recovery Determination with respect to such Mortgage Loan are Nonrecoverable Advances, but only to the extent that Late Collections, Liquidation Proceeds and Insurance Proceeds received with respect to such Mortgage Loan are insufficient to reimburse the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer for Servicing Advances; (iv) to pay to the Servicer as additional servicing compensation (in addition to the Servicing Fee) on the Servicer Remittance Date any interest or investment income earned on funds deposited in the Collection Account; (v) to pay itself, the NIMS Insurer or the Sponsor with respect to each Mortgage Loan that has previously been purchased or replaced pursuant to Section 2.03 or Section 3.16(c) all amounts received thereon subsequent to the date of purchase or substitution, as the case may be; (vi) to reimburse the Servicer for any Advance or Servicing Advance previously made which the Servicer has determined to be a Nonrecoverable Advance in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.04; (vii) to pay, or to reimburse the Servicer for Servicing Advances in respect of, expenses incurred in connection with any Mortgage Loan pursuant to Section 3.16(b); (viii) to reimburse the Servicer for expenses incurred by or reimbursable to the Servicer pursuant to Section 6.03; (ix) to pay itself any Prepayment Interest Excess; and (x) to clear and terminate the Collection Account pursuant to Section 10.01. The foregoing requirements for withdrawal from the Collection Account shall be exclusive. In the event the Servicer shall deposit in the Collection Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time withdraw such amount from the Collection Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. The Servicer shall keep and maintain separate accounting, on a Mortgage Loan by Mortgage Loan basis, for the purpose of justifying any withdrawal from the Collection Account, to the extent held by or on behalf of it, pursuant to subclauses (ii), (iii), (iv), (v), (vi) and (vii) above. The Servicer shall provide written notification to the NIMS Insurer and the Trustee, on or prior to the next succeeding Servicer Remittance Date, upon making any withdrawals from the Collection Account pursuant to subclause (vi) above; provided that an Officers' Certificate in the form described under Section 4.04(d) shall suffice for such written notification to the Trustee in respect hereof. (b) The Trustee shall, from time to time, make withdrawals from the Distribution Account, for any of the following purposes, without priority: (i) to make distributions in accordance with Section 4.01; (ii) to pay any amounts in respect of taxes pursuant to Section 9.01(g); (iii) to reimburse itself for expenses incurred pursuant to Section 9.01(c)(i); (iv) to clear and terminate the Distribution Account pursuant to Section 10.01; (v) to pay any amounts required to be paid to the Trustee pursuant to this Agreement, including but not limited to funds required to be paid pursuant to Section 3.06, Section 4.01, Section 7.02 and Section 8.05; (vi) to pay to the Trustee, any Trustee Compensation; and (vii) to pay to an Advancing Person reimbursements for Advances and/or Servicing Advances pursuant to Section 3.30. SECTION 3.12 Investment of Funds in the Collection Account, the Distribution Account, the Pre-Funding Accounts and the Interest Coverage Accounts. (a) The Servicer may direct any depository institution maintaining the Collection Account and any REO Account to invest the funds on deposit in such accounts, the Depositor may direct any depository institution maintaining the Pre-Funding Accounts and the Interest Coverage Accounts, if any, and the Trustee may invest the funds on deposit in the Distribution Account or hold such funds uninvested (each such account, for the purposes of this Section 3.12, an "Investment Account"). All investments pursuant to this Section 3.12 shall be in one or more Permitted Investments bearing interest or sold at a discount, and maturing, unless payable on demand, (i) no later than the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if a Person other than the Trustee is the obligor thereon or if such investment is managed or advised by a Person other than the Trustee or an Affiliate of the Trustee, and (ii) no later than the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if the Trustee is the obligor thereon or if such investment is managed or advised by the Trustee or any Affiliate. All such Permitted Investments shall be held to maturity, unless payable on demand. Any investment of funds in an Investment Account shall be made in the name of the Trustee (in its capacity as such), or in the name of a nominee of the Trustee. The Trustee shall be entitled to sole possession (except with respect to investment direction of funds held in the Collection Account, any REO Account and the Pre-Funding Accounts, and any income and gain realized thereon) over each such investment, and any certificate or other instrument evidencing any such investment shall be delivered directly to the Trustee or its agent, together with any document of transfer necessary to transfer title to such investment to the Trustee or its nominee. In the event amounts on deposit in an Investment Account are at any time invested in a Permitted Investment payable on demand, the Trustee shall: (x) consistent with any notice required to be given thereunder, demand that payment thereon be made on the last day such Permitted Investment may otherwise mature hereunder in an amount equal to the lesser of (1) all amounts then payable thereunder and (2) the amount required to be withdrawn on such date; and (y) demand payment of all amounts due thereunder promptly upon determination by a Responsible Officer of the Trustee that such Permitted Investment would not constitute a Permitted Investment in respect of funds thereafter on deposit in the Investment Account. (b) All income and gain realized from the investment of funds deposited in the Collection Account and any REO Account held by or on behalf of the Servicer shall be for the benefit of the Servicer and shall be subject to its withdrawal in accordance with Section 3.11 or Section 3.24, as applicable. The Servicer shall deposit in the Collection Account or any REO Account, as applicable, the amount of any loss of principal incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment made with funds in such Account immediately upon realization of such loss. All income and gain realized from the investment of funds deposited in the Pre-Funding Accounts held by or on behalf of the Depositor shall be for the benefit of the Depositor and shall be subject to its withdrawal in accordance with Section 4.05. The Depositor shall deposit in the Pre-Funding Accounts the amount of any loss of principal incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment made with funds in such accounts immediately upon realization of such loss. (c) All income and gain realized from the investment of funds deposited in the Distribution Account shall be for the benefit of the Trustee. The Trustee shall deposit in the Distribution Account the amount of any loss of principal incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment made with funds in such Account immediately upon realization of such loss. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Trustee may at its discretion, and without liability, hold the funds in the Distribution Account uninvested. (d) Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, if any default occurs in the making of a payment due under any Permitted Investment, or if a default occurs in any other performance required under any Permitted Investment, the Trustee may and, subject to Section 8.01 and Section 8.02(a)(v), upon the request of the NIMS Insurer or the Holders of Certificates representing more than 50% of the Voting Rights allocated to any Class of Certificates, shall take such action as may be appropriate to enforce such payment or performance, including the institution and prosecution of appropriate proceedings. (e) The Trustee or its Affiliates are permitted to receive additional compensation that could be deemed to be in the Trustee's economic self-interest for (i) serving as investment adviser, administrator, shareholder servicing agent, custodian or sub-custodian with respect to certain of the Permitted Investments, (ii) using Affiliates to effect transactions in certain Permitted Investments and (iii) effecting transactions in certain Permitted Investments. Such compensation shall not be considered an amount that is reimbursable or payable to the Trustee pursuant to Section 3.11 or 3.12 or otherwise payable in respect of extraordinary Trust Fund expenses. SECTION 3.13 [Reserved]. SECTION 3.14 Maintenance of Hazard Insurance and Errors and Omissions and Fidelity Coverage. (a) The Servicer shall cause to be maintained for each Mortgage Loan hazard insurance with extended coverage on the Mortgaged Property in an amount which is at least equal to the lesser of (i) the current Principal Balance of such Mortgage Loan and (ii) the amount necessary to fully compensate for any damage or loss to the improvements that are a part of such property on a replacement cost basis, in each case in an amount not less than such amount as is necessary to avoid the application of any coinsurance clause contained in the related hazard insurance policy. The Servicer shall also cause to be maintained hazard insurance with extended coverage on each REO Property in an amount which is at least equal to the lesser of (i) the maximum insurable value of the improvements which are a part of such property and (ii) the outstanding Principal Balance of the related Mortgage Loan at the time it became an REO Property. The Servicer will comply in the performance of this Agreement with all reasonable rules and requirements of each insurer under any such hazard policies. Any amounts to be collected by the Servicer under any such policies (other than amounts to be applied to the restoration or repair of the property subject to the related Mortgage or amounts to be released to the Mortgagor in accordance with the procedures that the Servicer would follow in servicing loans held for its own account, subject to the terms and conditions of the related Mortgage and Mortgage Note) shall be deposited in the Collection Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 3.11, if received in respect of a Mortgage Loan, or in the REO Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 3.24, if received in respect of an REO Property. Any cost incurred by the Servicer in maintaining any such insurance shall not, for the purpose of calculating distributions to Certificateholders, be added to the unpaid Principal Balance of the related Mortgage Loan, notwithstanding that the terms of such Mortgage Loan so permit. It is understood and agreed that no earthquake or other additional insurance is to be required of any Mortgagor other than pursuant to such applicable laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force and as shall require such additional insurance. If the Mortgaged Property or REO Property is at any time in an area identified in the Federal Register by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as having special flood hazards and flood insurance has been made available, the Servicer will cause to be maintained a flood insurance policy in respect thereof. Such flood insurance shall be in an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the unpaid Principal Balance of the related Mortgage Loan and (ii) the maximum amount of such insurance available for the related Mortgaged Property under the national flood insurance program (assuming that the area in which such Mortgaged Property is located is participating in such program). In the event that the Servicer shall obtain and maintain a blanket policy insuring against hazard losses on all of the Mortgage Loans, it shall conclusively be deemed to have satisfied its obligations as set forth in the first two sentences of this Section 3.14, it being understood and agreed that such policy may contain a deductible clause on terms substantially equivalent to those commercially available and maintained by competent servicers, 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 the first two sentences of this Section 3.14, and there shall have been one or more losses which would have been covered by such policy, deposit to the Collection Account from its own funds 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 itself, the Depositor, the Trustee and Certificateholders, claims under any such blanket policy in a timely fashion in accordance with the terms of such policy. (b) The Servicer shall keep in force during the term of this Agreement a policy or policies of insurance covering errors and omissions for failure in the performance of the Servicer's obligations under this Agreement, which policy or policies shall be in such form and amount that would meet the requirements of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac if it were the purchaser of the Mortgage Loans, unless the Servicer has obtained a waiver of such requirements from Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. The Servicer shall provide the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer, upon request, with copies of such insurance policies and fidelity bond. The Servicer shall also maintain a fidelity bond in the form and amount that would meet the requirements of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, unless the Servicer has obtained a waiver of such requirements from Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. The Servicer shall be deemed to have complied with this provision if an Affiliate of the Servicer has such errors and omissions and fidelity bond coverage and, by the terms of such insurance policy or fidelity bond, the coverage afforded thereunder extends to the Servicer. Any such errors and omissions policy and fidelity bond shall by its terms not be cancelable without thirty days' prior written notice to the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer. The Servicer shall also cause each Sub-Servicer to maintain a policy of insurance covering errors and omissions and a fidelity bond which would meet such requirements. SECTION 3.15 Enforcement of Due-On-Sale Clauses; Assumption Agreements. The Servicer will, to the extent it has knowledge of any conveyance or prospective conveyance of any Mortgaged Property by any Mortgagor (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 the "due-on-sale" clause, if any, applicable thereto; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not be required to take such action if in its sole business judgment the Servicer believes it is not in the best interests of the Trust Fund and shall not exercise any such rights if prohibited by law from doing so. If the Servicer reasonably believes it is unable under applicable law to enforce such "due-on-sale" clause, or if any of the other conditions set forth in the proviso to the preceding sentence apply, the Servicer will enter into an assumption and modification agreement from or with the person to whom such 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. The Servicer is also authorized, to the extent permitted under the related Mortgage Note, to enter into a substitution of liability agreement with such person, pursuant to which the original Mortgagor is released from liability and such person is substituted as the Mortgagor and becomes liable under the Mortgage Note, provided that no such substitution shall be effective unless such person satisfies the current underwriting criteria of the Servicer for a mortgage loan similar to the related Mortgage Loan. In connection with any assumption, modification or substitution, the Servicer or an agent of the Servicer shall apply such underwriting standards and follow such practices and procedures as shall be normal and usual in its general mortgage servicing activities and as it applies to other mortgage loans owned solely by it. The Servicer shall not take or enter into any assumption and modification agreement, however, unless (to the extent practicable in the circumstances) it shall have received confirmation, in writing, of the continued effectiveness of any applicable hazard insurance policy. Any fee collected by the Servicer in respect of an assumption, modification or substitution of liability agreement shall be retained by the Servicer as additional servicing compensation. In connection with any such assumption, no material term of the Mortgage Note (including but not limited to the related Mortgage Rate and the amount of the Monthly Payment) may be amended or modified, except as otherwise required pursuant to the terms thereof. The Servicer shall notify the Trustee that any such substitution, modification or assumption agreement has been completed by forwarding to the Trustee the executed original of such substitution, modification or assumption agreement, which document 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. Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph 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 by the terms of the Mortgage Note or any assumption which the Servicer may be restricted by law from preventing, for any reason whatsoever. For purposes of this Section 3.15, 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. SECTION 3.16 Realization Upon Defaulted Mortgage Loans. (a) The Servicer shall use its reasonable efforts, consistent with the Servicing Standard, to foreclose upon or otherwise comparably convert the ownership of properties securing such of the Mortgage Loans as come into and continue in default and as to which no satisfactory arrangements can be made for collection of delinquent payments pursuant to Section 3.07. Title to any such property shall be taken in the name of the Trustee or its nominee, on behalf of the Certificateholders, subject to applicable law. The Servicer shall be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by it in any such proceedings; provided, however, that such costs and expenses will be recoverable as Servicing Advances by the Servicer as contemplated in Section 3.11(a) and Section 3.24. The foregoing is subject to the provision that, in any case in which a Mortgaged Property shall have suffered damage from an Uninsured Cause, the Servicer shall not be required to expend its own funds toward the restoration of such property unless it shall determine in its discretion that such restoration will increase the proceeds of liquidation of the related Mortgage Loan after reimbursement to itself for such expenses. (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 3.16 or any other provision of this Agreement, with respect to any Mortgage Loan as to which the Servicer has received actual notice of, or has actual knowledge of, the presence of any toxic or hazardous substance on the related Mortgaged Property, the Servicer shall not, on behalf of the Trustee, either (i) obtain title to such Mortgaged Property as a result of or in lieu of foreclosure or otherwise, or (ii) otherwise acquire possession of, or take any other action with respect to, such Mortgaged Property, if, as a result of any such action, the Trustee, the Trust Fund or the Certificateholders would be considered to hold title to, to be a "mortgagee-in-possession" of, or to be an "owner" or "operator" of such Mortgaged Property within the meaning of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, as amended from time to time, or any comparable law, unless the Servicer has also previously determined, based on its reasonable judgment and a report prepared by a Person who regularly conducts environmental audits using customary industry standards, that: (1) such Mortgaged Property is in compliance with applicable environmental laws or, if not, that it would be in the best economic interest of the Trust Fund to take such actions as are necessary to bring the Mortgaged Property into compliance therewith; and (2) there are no circumstances present at such Mortgaged Property relating to the use, management or disposal of any hazardous substances, hazardous materials, hazardous wastes, or petroleum-based materials for which investigation, testing, monitoring, containment, clean-up or remediation could be required under any federal, state or local law or regulation, or that if any such materials are present for which such action could be required, that it would be in the best economic interest of the Trust Fund to take such actions with respect to the affected Mortgaged Property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such environmental audit reveals, or if the Servicer has actual knowledge or notice, that such Mortgaged Property contains such wastes or substances, the Servicer shall not foreclose or accept a deed in lieu of foreclosure without the prior written consent of the NIMS Insurer. The cost of the environmental audit report contemplated by this Section 3.16 shall be advanced by the Servicer, subject to the Servicer's right to be reimbursed therefor from the Collection Account as provided in Section 3.11(a)(vii), such right of reimbursement being prior to the rights of Certificateholders to receive any amount in the Collection Account received in respect of the affected Mortgage Loan or other Mortgage Loans. If the Servicer determines, as described above, that it is in the best economic interest of the Trust Fund to take such actions as are necessary to bring any such Mortgaged Property into compliance with applicable environmental laws, or to take such action with respect to the containment, clean-up or remediation of hazardous substances, hazardous materials, hazardous wastes or petroleum-based materials affecting any such Mortgaged Property, then the Servicer shall take such action as it deems to be in the best economic interest of the Trust Fund; provided that any amounts disbursed by the Servicer pursuant to this Section 3.16(b) shall constitute Servicing Advances, subject to Section 4.04(d). The cost of any such compliance, containment, clean-up or remediation shall be advanced by the Servicer, subject to the Servicer's right to be reimbursed therefor from the Collection Account as provided in Section 3.11(a)(vii), such right of reimbursement being prior to the rights of Certificateholders to receive any amount in the Collection Account received in respect of the affected Mortgage Loan or other Mortgage Loans. (c) The Servicer may, at its option, purchase a Mortgage Loan which has become 90 or more days delinquent or for which the Servicer has accepted a deed in lieu of foreclosure. Prior to purchase pursuant to this Section 3.16(c), the Servicer shall be required to continue to make Advances pursuant to Section 4.04. The Servicer shall not use any procedure in selecting Mortgage Loans to be repurchased which is materially adverse to the interests of the Certificateholders. The Servicer shall purchase such delinquent Mortgage Loan at a price equal to the Purchase Price of such Mortgage Loan. Any such purchase of a Mortgage Loan pursuant to this Section 3.16(c) shall be accomplished by deposit in the Collection Account of the amount of the Purchase Price. Upon the satisfaction of the requirements set forth in Section 3.17(a), the Trustee shall immediately deliver the Mortgage File and any related documentation to the Servicer and will execute such documents provided to it as are necessary to convey the Mortgage Loan to the Servicer. (d) Proceeds received in connection with any Final Recovery Determination, as well as any recovery resulting from a partial collection of Insurance Proceeds, Liquidation Proceeds or condemnation proceeds, in respect of any Mortgage Loan, will be applied in the following order of priority: first, to unpaid Servicing Fees; second, to reimburse the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer for any related unreimbursed Servicing Advances pursuant to Section 3.11(a)(iii) and Advances pursuant to Section 3.11(a)(ii); third, to accrued and unpaid interest on the Mortgage Loan, to the date of the Final Recovery Determination, or to the Due Date prior to the Distribution Date on which such amounts are to be distributed if not in connection with a Final Recovery Determination; and fourth, as a recovery of principal of the Mortgage Loan. The portion of the recovery so allocated to unpaid Servicing Fees shall be reimbursed to the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer pursuant to Section 3.11(a)(iii). SECTION 3.17 Trustee to Cooperate; Release of Mortgage Files. (a) Upon the payment in full of any Mortgage Loan, or the receipt by the Servicer of a notification that payment in full shall be escrowed in a manner customary for such purposes, the Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee), in written (with two executed copies) or electronic format, a Request for Release in the form of Exhibit E hereto (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 Collection Account pursuant to Section 3.10 have been or will be so deposited) signed by a Servicing Officer (or in a mutually agreeable electronic format that will, in lieu of a signature on its face, originate from a Servicing Officer) and shall request delivery to it or its designee of the Mortgage File. Upon receipt of such certification and request, the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) shall, within three Business Days, release the related Mortgage File to the Servicer or its designee (which, shall be sent by overnight mail at the Servicer's expense). Except as otherwise provided herein, no expenses incurred in connection with any instrument of satisfaction or deed of reconveyance shall be chargeable to the Collection Account or the Distribution Account. (b) From time to time and as appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of any Mortgage Loan, including, for this purpose, collection under any insurance policy relating to the Mortgage Loans, the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) shall, upon any request made by or on behalf of the Servicer and delivery to the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) of two executed copies of a written Request for Release in the form of Exhibit E hereto signed by a Servicing Officer (or in a mutually agreeable electronic format that will, in lieu of a signature on its face, originate from a Servicing Officer), release the related Mortgage File to the Servicer or its designee within three Business Days, which shall be sent by overnight mail, at the expense of the Servicer or the related Mortgagor, and the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) shall, at the written direction of the Servicer, execute such documents provided to it by the Servicer as shall be necessary to the prosecution of any such proceedings. Such Request for Release shall obligate the Servicer to return each and every document previously requested from the Mortgage File to the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) when the need therefor by the Servicer no longer exists, unless the Mortgage Loan has been liquidated and the Liquidation Proceeds relating to the Mortgage Loan have been deposited in the Collection Account or the Mortgage File or such document has been delivered to an attorney, or to a public trustee or other public official as required by law, for purposes of initiating or pursuing legal action or other proceedings for the foreclosure of the Mortgaged Property either judicially or non-judicially, and the Servicer has delivered, or caused to be delivered, to the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) an additional Request for Release certifying as to such liquidation or action or proceedings. Upon the request of the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee), the Servicer shall provide notice to the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) of the name and address of the Person to which such Mortgage File or such document was delivered and the purpose or purposes of such delivery. Upon receipt of a Request for Release, in written (with two executed copies) or electronic format (or in a mutually agreeable electronic format that will, in lieu of a signature on its face, originate from a Servicing Officer), from a Servicing Officer stating that such Mortgage Loan was liquidated and that all amounts received or to be received in connection with such liquidation that are required to be deposited into the Collection Account have been so deposited, or that such Mortgage Loan has become an REO Property, such Mortgage Loan shall be released by the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) to the Servicer or its designee within three Business Days. (c) Upon written certification of a Servicing Officer, the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) shall execute and deliver to the Servicer or the Sub-Servicer, as the case may be, copies of any court pleadings, requests for trustee's sale or other documents necessary to the foreclosure or trustee's sale in respect of a Mortgaged Property or to any legal action brought to obtain judgment against any Mortgagor on the Mortgage Note or Mortgage or to obtain a deficiency judgment, or to enforce any other remedies or rights provided by the Mortgage Note or Mortgage or otherwise available at law or in equity. Each such certification shall include a request that such pleadings or documents be executed by the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) and a statement as to the reason such documents or pleadings are required and that the execution and delivery thereof by the Trustee (or the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee) will not invalidate or otherwise affect the lien of the Mortgage, except for the termination of such a lien upon completion of the foreclosure or trustee's sale. SECTION 3.18 Servicing Compensation. As compensation for its activities hereunder, the Servicer shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee with respect to each Mortgage Loan payable solely from payments of interest in respect of such Mortgage Loan, subject to Section 3.24. In addition, the Servicer shall be entitled to recover unpaid Servicing Fees out of Insurance Proceeds, Liquidation Proceeds or condemnation proceeds to the extent permitted by Section 3.11(a)(iii) and out of amounts derived from the operation and sale of an REO Property to the extent permitted by Section 3.24. Except as provided in Section 3.30, the right to receive the Servicing Fee may not be transferred in whole or in part except in connection with the transfer of all of the Servicer's responsibilities and obligations under this Agreement; provided, however, that the Servicer may pay from the Servicing Fee any amounts due to a Sub-Servicer pursuant to a Sub-Servicing Agreement entered into under Section 3.02. Additional servicing compensation in the form of assumption fees, late payment charges, insufficient funds charges, ancillary income or otherwise (other than Prepayment Charges) shall be retained by the Servicer only to the extent such fees or charges are received by the Servicer. The Servicer shall also be entitled pursuant to Section 3.11(a)(iv) to withdraw from the Collection Account and pursuant to Section 3.24(b) to withdraw from any REO Account, as additional servicing compensation, interest or other income earned on deposits therein, subject to Section 3.12 and Section 3.25. The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its servicing activities hereunder (including premiums for the insurance required by Section 3.14, to the extent such premiums are not paid by the related Mortgagors or by a Sub-Servicer, and servicing compensation of each Sub-Servicer) and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor except as specifically provided herein. The Servicer shall be entitled to any Prepayment Interest Excess, which it may withdraw from the Collection Account pursuant to Section 3.11(a)(ix). SECTION 3.19 Reports to the Trustee; Collection Account Statements. Not later than thirty days after each Distribution Date, the Servicer shall forward, upon request, to the NIMS Insurer and, upon request, to the Trustee and the Depositor the most current available bank statement for the Collection Account. Copies of such statement shall be provided by the Trustee to any Certificateholder and to any Person identified to the Trustee as a prospective transferee of a Certificate, upon request at the expense of the requesting party, provided such statement is delivered by the Servicer to the Trustee. SECTION 3.20 Statement as to Compliance. The Master Servicer and each Servicer shall deliver to the Master Servicer, the Depositor and the Trustee, not later than March 1st of each calendar year beginning in 2007, an Officer's Certificate (an "Annual Statement of Compliance") stating, as to each signatory thereof, that (i) a review of the activities of the Master Servicer or the related Servicer (as the case may be) during the preceding calendar year and of its performance under this Agreement or other applicable servicing agreement (including, but not limited to the related Servicing Agreement) has been made under such officer's supervision and (ii) to the best of such officers' knowledge, based on such review, the Master Servicer or the related Servicer (as the case may be) has fulfilled all of its obligations under this Agreement or other applicable servicing agreement (including, but not limited to the related Servicing Agreement) in all material respects throughout such year, or, if there has been a failure to fulfill any such obligation in any material respect, specifying each such failure known to such officer and the nature and status of cure provisions thereof. Such Annual Statement of Compliance shall contain no restrictions or limitations on its use. In the event that the Master Servicer or the related Servicer (as the case may be) has delegated any servicing responsibilities with respect to the Mortgage Loans to a subservicer, the Master Servicer or the related Servicer (as the case may be)shall deliver a similar Annual Statement of Compliance by that subservicer to the Trustee as described above as and when required with respect to the Master Servicer or the related Servicer (as the case may be). If the Master Servicer or the related Servicer (as the case may be) cannot deliver the related Annual Statement of Compliance by March 1st of such year, the Trustee, at its sole option, may permit a cure period for the Master Servicer or the related Servicer (as the case may be) to deliver such Annual Statement of Compliance, but in no event later than March 10th of such year. Failure of the Master Servicer to timely comply with this Section 3.13 shall be deemed an Event of Default, and the Trustee may, in addition to whatever rights the Trustee may have under this Agreement and at law or equity or to damages, including injunctive relief and specific performance, upon notice immediately terminate all the rights and obligations of the Master Servicer under this Agreement and in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof without compensating the Master Servicer for the same. This paragraph shall supercede any other provision in this Agreement or any other agreement to the contrary. SECTION 3.21 Assessments of Compliance and Attestation Reports. On and after January 1, 2006, the Master Servicer shall service and administer the Mortgage Loans in accordance with all applicable requirements of the Servicing Criteria. Pursuant to Rules 13a-18 and 15d-18 of the Exchange Act and Item 1123 of Regulation AB, the Master Servicer and the Custodian (the "Attesting Party") shall deliver to theTrustee on or before March 1 of each calendar year beginning in 2007, a report regarding the Master Servicer's assessment of compliance (an "Assessment of Compliance") with the Servicing Criteria during the preceding calendar year. The Assessment of Compliance, as set forth in Regulation AB, must contain the following: (a) statement by such officer of its responsibility for assessing compliance with the Servicing Criteria applicable to the related Attesting Party; (b) statement by such officer that such Attesting Party used the Servicing Criteria attached as Exhibit U hereto, and which will also be attached to the Assement of Compliance, to assess compliance with the Servicing Criteria applicable to the related Attesting Party; (c) An assessment by such officer of the related Attesting Party's compliance with the applicable Servicing Criteria for the period consisting of the preceding calendar year, including disclosure of any material instance of noncompliance with respect thereto during such period, which assessment shall be based on the activities such Attesting Party performs with respect to asset-backed securities transactions taken as a whole involving the Master Servicer, that are backed by the same asset type as the Mortgage Loans; (d) A statement that a registered public accounting firm has issued an attestation report on the related Attesting Party's Assessment of Compliance for the period consisting of the preceding calendar year; and (e) A statement as to which of the Servicing Criteria, if any, are not applicable to such Attesting Party, which statement shall be based on the activities such Attesting Party performs with respect to asset-backed securities transactions taken as a whole involving such Attesting Party, that are backed by the same asset type as the Mortgage Loans. Such report at a minimum shall address each of the Servicing Criteria specified on Exhibit U hereto which are indicated as applicable to the related Attesting Party. On or before March 1st of each calendar year beginning in 2007, each Attesting Party shall furnish to the Master Servicer, the Depositor and the Trustee a report (an "Attestation Report") by a registered public accounting firm that attests to, and reports on, the Assessment of Compliance made by the Company, as required by Rules 13a-18 and 15d-18 of the Exchange Act and Item 1122(b) of Regulation AB, which Attestation Report must be made in accordance with standards for attestation reports issued or adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. The Master Servicer shall cause any subservicer, and each subcontractor determined by the Master Servicer to be "participating in the servicing function" within the meaning of Item 1122 of Regulation AB, to deliver to the Trustee and the Depositor an Assessment of Compliance and Attestation Report as and when provided above. Such Assessment of Compliance, as to any subservicer, shall at a minimum address each of the Servicing Criteria specified on Exhibit U hereto which are indicated as applicable to any "primary servicer." Notwithstanding the foregoing, as to any subcontractor (as defined in the related servicing agreement), an Assessment of Compliance is not required to be delivered unless it is required as part of a Form 10-K with respect to the Trust Fund. If the Master Servicer cannot deliver any Assessment of Compliance or Attestation Report by March 1st of such year, the Trustee, at its sole option, may permit a cure period for the Master Servicer to deliver such Assessment of Compliance or Attestation Report, but in no event later than March 10th of such year. Failure of the Master Servicer to timely comply with this Section 3.14 shall be deemed an Event of Default, and the Trustee may, in addition to whatever rights the Trustee may have under this Agreement and at law or equity or to damages, including injunctive relief and specific performance, upon notice immediately terminate all the rights and obligations of the Master Servicer under this Agreement and in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof without compensating the Master Servicer for the same. This paragraph shall supercede any other provision in this Agreement or any other agreement to the contrary. The Trustee shall also provide an Assessment of Compliance and Attestation Report, as and when provided above, which shall at a minimum address each of the Servicing Criteria specified on Exhibit U hereto which are indicated as applicable to the "trustee." In addition, the Trustee shall cause the Custodian to deliver to the Trustee and the Depositor an Assessment of Compliance and Attestation Report, as and when provided above, which shall at a minimum address each of the Servicing Criteria specified on Exhibit U hereto which are indicated as applicable to a "custodian." Notwithstanding the foregoing, as to any Custodian, an Assessment of Compliance is not required to be delivered unless it is required as part of a Form 10-K with respect to the Trust Fund. Each Attesting Party shall indemnify and hold harmless the Trustee and each of its directors, officers, employees, agents, and affiliates from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon (a) any breach by such Attesting Party of any if its obligations under hereunder, including particularly its obligations to provide any Assessment of Compliance, Attestation Report, Compliance Statement or any information, data or materials required to be included in any Echange Act Report, (b) any misstatement or omission in any information, data or materials provided by such Attesting Party, or (c) the negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of such Attesting Party in connection with its performance hereunder. If the indemnification provided for herein is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless the Trustee, then each Attesting Party agrees that it shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the Trustee as a result of any claims, losses, damages or liabilities incurred by the Trustee in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Trustee on the one hand and such Attesting Party on the other. This indemnification shall survive the termination of this Agreement or the termination of any party to this Agreement. SECTION 3.22 Intention of the Parties and Interpretation. Each of the parties acknowledges and agrees that the purpose of Sections 3.20 and 3.21 of this Agreement is to facilitate compliance by the Sponsor and the Depositor with the provisions of Regulation AB. Therefore, each of the parties agrees that (a) the obligations of the parties hereunder shall be interpreted in such a manner as to accomplish that purpose, (b) the parties' obligations hereunder will be supplemented and modified as necessary to be consistent with any such amendments, interpretive advice or guidance, convention or consensus among active participants in the asset-backed securities markets, advice of counsel, or otherwise in respect of the requirements of Regulation AB, (c) the parties shall comply with reasonable requests made by the Sponsor or the Depositor for delivery of additional or different information as the Sponsor or the Depositor may determine in good faith is necessary to comply with the provisions of Regulation AB, and (d) no amendment of this Agreement shall be required to effect any such changes in the parties' obligations as are necessary to accommodate evolving interpretations of the provisions of Regulation AB. SECTION 3.23 Access to Certain Documentation; Filing of Reports by Trustee. (a) The Servicer shall provide to the Office of Thrift Supervision, the FDIC, and any other federal or state banking or insurance regulatory authority that may exercise authority over any Certificateholder, access to the documentation regarding the Mortgage Loans required by applicable laws and regulations. Such access shall be afforded without charge, but only upon reasonable request and during normal business hours at the offices of the Servicer designated by it. In addition, access to the documentation regarding the Mortgage Loans will be provided to the Trustee, the NIMS Insurer and to any Person identified to the Servicer as a prospective transferee of a Certificate, upon reasonable request during normal business hours at the offices of the Servicer designated by it, at the expense of the Person requesting such access. (b) (i) Within 15 days after each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall, in accordance with industry standards, file with the Commission via the Electronic Data Gathering and Retrieval System ("EDGAR"), a Distribution Report on Form 10-D, signed by the Master Servicer, with a copy of the monthly statement to be furnished by the Trustee to the Certificateholders for such Distribution Date and detailing all data elements specified in Item 1121(a) of Regulation AB as part of the monthly statement; provided that the Trustee shall have received no later than [5] days prior to the date such Distribution Report on Form 10-D is required to be filed, all information required to be provided to the Trustee as described in clause (a)(iv) below. The Trustee will prepare and file Current Reports on Form 8-K in respect of the Trust, signed by the Master Servicer, as and when required; provided, that, the Trustee shall have received no later than one Business Day prior to the filing deadline for such Current Report, all information, data, and exhibits required to be provided or filed with such Current Report and required to be provided to the Trustee as described in clause (a)(iv) below. Prior to January 30 in each year commencing in 2007, the Trustee shall, in accordance with industry standards, file a Form 15 Suspension Notice with respect to the Trust Fund, if applicable. Prior to (x) March 15, 2007 and (y) unless and until a Form 15 Suspension Notice shall have been filed, prior to March 15 of each year thereafter, the Master Servicer shall provide the Trustee with an Annual Compliance Statement, together with a copy of the Assessment of Compliance and Attestation Report to be delivered by each Attesting Party (including without limitation the Master Servicer) pursuant to Sections 3.13 and 3.14 (including with respect to any subservicer or subcontractor, if required to be filed). Prior to (x) March 31, 2007 and (y) unless and until a Form 15 Suspension Notice shall have been filed, March 31 of each year thereafter, the Trustee shall, subject to subsection (d) below, file a Form 10-K, in substance conforming to industry standards, with respect to the Trust Fund. Such Form 10-K shall include the Assessment of Compliance, Attestation Report, Annual Compliance Statements and other documentation provided by each Attesting Party (including without limitation the Master Servicer) pursuant to Sections 3.13 and 3.14 (including with respect to any subservicer or subcontractor, if required to be filed) and with respect to the Trustee and the Custodian, and the Form 10-K certification signed by the Master Servicer; provided that the Trustee shall have received no later than March 15 of each calendar year prior to the filing deadline for the Form 10-K all information, data and exhibits required to be provided or filed with such Form 10-K and required to be provided to the Trustee as described in clause (a)(iv) below. As to each item of information required to be included in any Form 10-D, Form 8-K or Form 10-K relating to the Trust Fund, the related Attesting Party's obligation to include the information in the applicable report is subject to receipt from the entity that is indicated in Exhibit V as the responsible party for providing that information, if other than the Trustee, as and when required as described above. Each of the Master Servicer, Sponsor and Depositor hereby agree to notify and provide to the Trustee all information that is required to be included in any Form 10-D, Form 8-K or Form 10-K relating to the Trust Fund, with respect to which the related Attesting Party is indicated in Exhibit V as the responsible party for providing that information. The Swap Provider will be obligated pursuant to the Swap Agreement to provide to the Trustee any information that may be required to be included in any Form 10-D, Form 8-K or Form 10-K. The Trustee shall be responsible for determining the significance percentage (as defined in Item 1115 of Regulation AB) of the Swap Provider at any time. The Master Servicer shall be responsible for determining the pool concentration applicable to any subservicer or originator at any time, for purposes of disclosure as required by Items 1117 and 1119 of Regulation AB. The Depositor agrees to promptly furnish to the Trustee, from time to time upon request, such further information, reports and financial statements within its control related to this Agreement, the Mortgage Loans as the Trustee reasonably deems appropriate to prepare and file all necessary reports with the Commission. The Trustee shall have no responsibility to file any items other than those specified in this Section 3.16; provided, however, the Trustee will cooperate with the Depositor in connection with any additional filings with respect to the Trust Fund as the Depositor deems necessary under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). Copies of all reports filed by the Trustee under the Exchange Act shall be sent to: the Depositor [__________]. Fees and expenses incurred by the Trustee in connection with this Section 3.16 shall not be reimbursable from the Trust Fund. In connection with the filing of any 10-K hereunder, the Trustee shall sign a certification (a "Form of Back-Up Certification for Form 10-K Certificate," substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit T) for the Depositor regarding certain aspects of the Form 10-K certification signed by the Depositor, provided, however, that the Trustee shall not be required to undertake an analysis of any accountant's report attached as an exhibit to the Form 10-K. The Depositor agrees to furnish promptly to the Trustee, from time to time upon request, such additional information, data, reports, documents, and financial statements within the Depositor's possession or control as the Trustee reasonably requests as necessary or appropriate to prepare and file the foregoing reports. The Trustee shall make available to the Depositor copies of all Exchange Act Reports filed hereunder. Other than the Exchange Act Reports specified above, the Trustee shall have no responsibility to file any items or reports with the SEC under the 1934 Act or otherwise; provided, however, the Trustee will cooperate with the Depositor in connection with any additional filings with respect to the Trust as the Depositor deems necessary under the 1934 Act. The Trustee shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor and its officers, directors and affiliates from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon a breach of the Trustee's obligations under this Section 3.16 or the Trustee's negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in connection therewith. [The Sponsor shall pay all costs and expenses of the Trustee related to the preparation and filing of any Current Report on Form 8-K, any Distribution Report on Form 10-D (other than the costs and expense of the Trustee associated with the preparation and filing of the Statement to Certificateholders), or any amendment to any Exchange Act Report. Except as otherwise provided herein, all expenses incurred by the Trustee in connection with its preparation and filing of Exchange Act Report s hereunder shall not be reimbursable from the Trust.][Bear and EMC to discuss] Any party that signs any Exchange Act Report that the Trustee is required to file shall provide to the Trustee prompt notice of the execution of such Exchange Act Report along with the name and contact information for the person signing such report and shall promptly deliver to the Trustee the original executed signature page for such report. In addition, each of the parties agrees to provide to the Trustee such additional information related to such party as the Trustee may reasonably request, including evidence of the authorization of the person signing any certification or statement, financial information and reports, and such other information related to such party or its performance hereunder. The Depositor shall indemnify and hold harmless the Trustee and its officers, directors and affiliates from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon a breach of the obligations of the Depositor under this Section 3.16 or the Depositor's negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in connection therewith. The Master Servicer shall indemnify and hold harmless the Trustee and the Depositor and their respective officers, directors and affiliates from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon a breach of the obligations of the Master Servicer under this Section 3.16 or the Master Servicer's negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in connection therewith. [The Trustee shall not be responsible or liable in any respect for any failure to file timely any Exchange Act Report in respect of the Trust or for any incomplete or deficient filing of any Exchange Act Report in respect of the Trust resulting from any failure of the Depositor, any Servicer or any other transaction party to comply fully and timely with any of its obligations to provide any information or data to the Trustee. In addition, if the Trustee determines, in its reasonable judgment, that any Exchange Act Report proposed to be filed in respect of the Trust contains any material misstatement or omission, the Trustee shall thenceforth be relieved of any and all obligations hereunder to provide any certification in respect of the Trust (including, particularly, the certification specified in Item 601(b)(31)(ii) of Regulation S-K) or to execute and file any Exchange Act Report in respect of the Trust.] If the indemnification provided for herein is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless the Depositor or the Trustee, as applicable, then the defaulting party, in connection with a breach of its respective obligations under this Section 3.16 or its respective negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in connection therewith, agrees that it shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the other parties as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities of the other party in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault and the relative benefit of the Depositor on the one hand and the Trustee on the other. Nothing shall be construed from the foregoing subsections (a), (b) and (c) to require the Trustee or any officer, director or Affiliate thereof to sign any Form 10-K or any certification contained therein. Furthermore, the inability of the Trustee to file a Form 10-K as a result of the lack of required information as set forth in Section 3.16(a) or required signatures on such Form 10-K or any certification contained therein shall not be regarded as a breach by the Trustee of any obligation under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 11.01, this Section 3.16 may be amended without the consent of the Certificateholders. SECTION 3.24 Title, Management and Disposition of REO Property. (a) The deed or certificate of sale of any REO Property shall, subject to applicable laws, be taken in the name of the Trustee, or its nominee, in trust for the benefit of the Certificateholders. The Servicer, on behalf of REMIC 1, shall sell any REO Property as soon as practicable and in any event no later than the end of the third full taxable year after the taxable year in which such REMIC acquires ownership of such REO Property for purposes of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code or request from the Internal Revenue Service, no later than 60 days before the day on which the three-year grace period would otherwise expire, an extension of such three-year period, unless the Servicer shall have delivered to the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer an Opinion of Counsel acceptable to the NIMS Insurer and addressed to the Trustee, the NIMS Insurer and the Depositor, to the effect that the holding by the REMIC of such REO Property subsequent to three years after its acquisition will not result in the imposition on the REMIC of taxes on "prohibited transactions" thereof, as defined in Section 860F of the Code, or cause any of the REMICs created hereunder to fail to qualify as a REMIC under Federal law at any time that any Certificates are outstanding. The Servicer shall manage, conserve, protect and operate each REO Property for the Certificateholders solely for the purpose of its prompt disposition and sale in a manner which does not cause such REO Property to fail to qualify as "foreclosure property" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code or result in the receipt by any of the REMICs created hereunder of any "income from non-permitted assets" within the meaning of Section 860F(a)(2)(B) of the Code, or any "net income from foreclosure property" which is subject to taxation under the REMIC Provisions. (b) The Servicer shall separately account for all funds collected and received in connection with the operation of any REO Property and shall establish and maintain, or cause to be established and maintained, with respect to REO Properties an account held in trust for the Trustee for the benefit of the Certificateholders (the "REO Account"), which shall be an Eligible Account. The Servicer shall be permitted to allow the Collection Account to serve as the REO Account, subject to separate ledgers for each REO Property. The Servicer shall be entitled to retain or withdraw any interest income paid on funds deposited in the REO Account. (c) The Servicer shall have full power and authority, subject only to the specific requirements and prohibitions of this Agreement, to do any and all things in connection with any REO Property as are consistent with the manner in which the Servicer manages and operates similar property owned by the Servicer or any of its Affiliates, all on such terms and for such period (subject to the requirement of prompt disposition set forth in Section 3.24(a)) as the Servicer deems to be in the best interests of Certificateholders. In connection therewith, the Servicer shall deposit, or cause to be deposited in the REO Account, in no event more than two Business Days after the Servicer's receipt thereof, all revenues received by it with respect to an REO Property and shall withdraw therefrom funds necessary for the proper operation, management and maintenance of such REO Property including, without limitation: (i) all insurance premiums due and payable in respect of such REO Property; (ii) all real estate taxes and assessments in respect of such REO Property that may result in the imposition of a lien thereon; and (iii) all costs and expenses necessary to maintain, operate and dispose of such REO Property. To the extent that amounts on deposit in the REO Account with respect to an REO Property are insufficient for the purposes set forth in clauses (i) through (iii) above with respect to such REO Property, the Servicer shall advance from its own funds such amount as is necessary for such purposes if, but only if, the Servicer would make such advances if the Servicer owned the REO Property and if in the Servicer's judgment, the payment of such amounts will be recoverable from the rental or sale of the REO Property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither the Servicer nor the Trustee shall: (1) authorize the Trust Fund to enter into, renew or extend any New Lease with respect to any REO Property, if the New Lease by its terms will give rise to any income that does not constitute Rents from Real Property; (2) authorize any amount to be received or accrued under any New Lease other than amounts that will constitute Rents from Real Property; (3) authorize any construction on any REO Property, other than the completion of a building or other improvement thereon, and then only if more than ten percent of the construction of such building or other improvement was completed before default on the related Mortgage Loan became imminent, all within the meaning of Section 856(e)(4)(B) of the Code; or (4) authorize any Person to Directly Operate any REO Property on any date more than 90 days after its date of acquisition by the Trust Fund; unless, in any such case, the Servicer has obtained an Opinion of Counsel, provided to the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer, to the effect that such action will not cause such REO Property to fail to qualify as "foreclosure property" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code at any time that it is held by the REMIC, in which case the Servicer may take such actions as are specified in such Opinion of Counsel. The Servicer may contract with any Independent Contractor for the operation and management of any REO Property, provided that: (1) the terms and conditions of any such contract shall not be inconsistent herewith; (2) any such contract shall require, or shall be administered to require, that the Independent Contractor pay all costs and expenses incurred in connection with the operation and management of such REO Property, including those listed above and remit all related revenues (net of such costs and expenses) to the Servicer as soon as practicable, but in no event later than thirty days following the receipt thereof by such Independent Contractor; (3) none of the provisions of this Section 3.24(c) relating to any such contract or to actions taken through any such Independent Contractor shall be deemed to relieve the Servicer of any of its duties and obligations to the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders with respect to the operation and management of any such REO Property; and (4) the Servicer shall be obligated with respect thereto to the same extent as if it alone were performing all duties and obligations in connection with the operation and management of such REO Property. The Servicer shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with any Independent Contractor performing services for it related to its duties and obligations hereunder for indemnification of the Servicer by such Independent Contractor, and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification. The Servicer shall be solely liable for all fees owed by it to any such Independent Contractor, irrespective of whether the Servicer's compensation pursuant to Section 3.18 is sufficient to pay such fees; provided, however, that to the extent that any payments made by such Independent Contractor would constitute Servicing Advances if made by the Servicer, such amounts shall be reimbursable as Servicing Advances made by the Servicer. (d) In addition to the withdrawals permitted under Section 3.24(c), the Servicer may from time to time make withdrawals from the REO Account for any REO Property: (i) to pay itself or any Sub-Servicer unpaid Servicing Fees in respect of the related Mortgage Loan; and (ii) to reimburse itself or any Sub-Servicer for unreimbursed Servicing Advances and Advances made in respect of such REO Property or the related Mortgage Loan. On the Servicer Remittance Date, the Servicer shall withdraw from each REO Account maintained by it and deposit into the Distribution Account in accordance with Section 3.10(d)(ii), for distribution on the related Distribution Date in accordance with Section 4.01, the income from the related REO Property received during the prior calendar month, net of any withdrawals made pursuant to Section 3.24(c) or this Section 3.24(d). (e) Subject to the time constraints set forth in Section 3.24(a), each REO Disposition shall be carried out by the Servicer in a manner, at such price and upon such terms and conditions as shall be normal and usual in the Servicing Standard. (f) The proceeds from the REO Disposition, net of any amount required by law to be remitted to the Mortgagor under the related Mortgage Loan and net of any payment or reimbursement to the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer as provided above, shall be deposited in the Distribution Account in accordance with Section 3.10(d)(ii) on the Servicer Remittance Date in the month following the receipt thereof for distribution on the related Distribution Date in accordance with Section 4.01. Any REO Disposition shall be for cash only (unless changes in the REMIC Provisions made subsequent to the Startup Day allow a sale for other consideration). (g) The Servicer shall file information returns with respect to the receipt of mortgage interest received in a trade or business, reports of foreclosures and abandonments of any Mortgaged Property and cancellation of indebtedness income with respect to any Mortgaged Property as required by the Code. Such reports shall be in form and substance sufficient to meet the reporting requirements of the Code. SECTION 3.25 Obligations of the Servicer in Respect of Prepayment Interest Shortfalls. Not later than 1:00 p.m. New York time on each Servicer Remittance Date, the Servicer shall remit to the Distribution Account an amount ("Compensating Interest") equal to the lesser of (A) the aggregate of the Prepayment Interest Shortfalls for the related Distribution Date and (B) its aggregate Servicing Fee received in the related Due Period. The Servicer shall not have the right to reimbursement for any amounts remitted to the Trustee in respect of Compensating Interest. Such amounts so remitted shall be included in the Available Funds and distributed therewith on the next Distribution Date. The Servicer shall not be obligated to pay Compensating Interest with respect to Relief Act Interest Shortfalls. SECTION 3.26 [Reserved]. SECTION 3.27 Obligations of the Servicer in Respect of Mortgage Rates and Monthly Payments. In the event that a shortfall in any collection on or liability with respect to the Mortgage Loans in the aggregate results from or is attributable to adjustments to Mortgage Rates, Monthly Payments or Stated Principal Balances that were made by the Servicer in a manner not consistent with the terms of the related Mortgage Note and this Agreement, the Servicer, upon discovery or receipt of notice thereof, immediately shall deposit in the Collection Account from its own funds the amount of any such shortfall and shall indemnify and hold harmless the Trust Fund, the Trustee, the Depositor and any successor servicer in respect of any such liability. Such indemnities shall survive the termination or discharge of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 3.27 shall not limit the ability of the Servicer to seek recovery of any such amounts from the related Mortgagor under the terms of the related Mortgage Note, as permitted by law. SECTION 3.28 [Reserved]. SECTION 3.29 [Reserved]. SECTION 3.30 Advance Facility. The Servicer, with the consent of the NIMS Insurer, is hereby authorized to enter into a financing or other facility (any such arrangement, an "Advance Facility") under which (1) the Servicer sells, assigns or pledges to another Person (together with such Person's successors and assigns, an "Advancing Person") the Servicer's rights under this Agreement to be reimbursed for any Advances or Servicing Advances and/or (2) an Advancing Person agrees to fund some or all Advances and/or Servicing Advances required to be made by the Servicer pursuant to this Agreement. No consent of the Depositor, the Trustee, the Certificateholders or any other party (other than the NIMS Insurer consent) shall be required before the Servicer may enter into an Advance Facility. The Servicer shall notify the NIMS Insurer and each other party to this Agreement prior to or promptly after entering into or terminating any Advance Facility. Notwithstanding the existence of any Advance Facility under which an Advancing Person agrees to fund Advances and/or Servicing Advances on the Servicer's behalf, the Servicer shall remain obligated pursuant to this Agreement to make Advances and Servicing Advances pursuant to and as required by this Agreement. If the Servicer enters into an Advance Facility, and for so long as an Advancing Person remains entitled to receive reimbursement for any Advances including Nonrecoverable Advances ("Advance Reimbursement Amounts") and/or Servicing Advances including Nonrecoverable Advances ("Servicing Advance Reimbursement Amounts" and together with Advance Reimbursement Amounts, "Reimbursement Amounts") (in each case to the extent such type of Reimbursement Amount is included in the Advance Facility), as applicable, pursuant to this Agreement, then the Servicer shall identify such Reimbursement Amounts consistent with the reimbursement rights set forth in Section 3.11(a)(ii), (iii), (vi) and (vii) and remit such Reimbursement Amounts in accordance with Section 3.10(b) or otherwise in accordance with the documentation establishing the Advance Facility to such Advancing Person or to a trustee, agent or custodian (an "Advance Facility Trustee") designated by such Advancing Person. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if so required pursuant to the terms of the Advance Facility, the Servicer may direct, and if so directed the Trustee is hereby authorized to and shall pay to the Advance Facility Trustee the Reimbursement Amounts identified pursuant to the preceding sentence. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in no event shall Advance Reimbursement Amounts or Servicing Advance Reimbursement Amounts be included in the Available Funds or distributed to Certificateholders. If the terms of a facility proposed to be entered into with an Advancing Person by the Trust Fund would not materially and adversely affect the interests of any Certificateholder, then the NIMS Insurer shall not withhold its consent to the Trust Fund's entering such facility. Reimbursement Amounts shall consist solely of amounts in respect of Advances and/or Servicing Advances made with respect to the Mortgage Loans for which the Servicer would be permitted to reimburse itself in accordance with this Agreement, assuming the Servicer or the Advancing Person had made the related Advance(s) and/or Servicing Advance(s). Notwithstanding the foregoing, except with respect to reimbursement of Nonrecoverable Advances as set forth in this Agreement, no Person shall be entitled to reimbursement from funds held in the Collection Account for future distribution to Certificateholders pursuant to this Agreement. None of the Depositor or the Trustee shall have any duty or liability with respect to the calculation of any Reimbursement Amount, nor shall the Depositor or the Trustee have any responsibility to track or monitor the administration of the Advance Facility and the Depositor shall not have any responsibility to track, monitor or verify the payment of Reimbursement Amounts to the related Advancing Person or Advance Facility Trustee. The Servicer shall maintain and provide to any successor servicer and (upon request) the Trustee a detailed accounting on a loan by loan basis as to amounts advanced by, sold, pledged or assigned to, and reimbursed to any Advancing Person. The successor servicer shall be entitled to rely on any such information provided by the predecessor servicer, and the successor servicer shall not be liable for any errors in such information. Any successor Servicer shall reimburse the predecessor Servicer and itself for outstanding Advances and Servicing Advances, respectively, with respect to each Mortgage Loan on a first in, first out ("FIFO") basis; provided that the successor Servicer has received prior written notice from the predecessor Servicer or the Advancing Person of reimbursement amounts owed to the predecessor Servicer. Liquidation Proceeds with respect to a Mortgage Loan shall be applied to reimburse Advances outstanding with respect to that Mortgage Loan before being applied to reimburse Servicing Advances outstanding with respect to that Mortgage Loan. An Advancing Person who receives an assignment or pledge of the rights to be reimbursed for Advances and/or Servicing Advances, and/or whose obligations hereunder are limited to the funding or purchase of Advances and/or Servicing Advances shall not be required to meet the criteria for qualification of a subservicer set forth in this Agreement. Upon the direction of and at the expense of the Servicer, the Trustee agrees to execute such acknowledgments, certificates, and other documents provided by the Servicer recognizing the interests of any Advance Facility Trustee in such Reimbursement Amounts as the Servicer may cause to be made subject to Advance Facilities pursuant to this Section 3.30. The Servicer shall remain entitled to be reimbursed for all Advances and Servicing Advances funded by the Servicer to the extent the related rights to be reimbursed therefor have not been sold, assigned or pledged to an Advancing Person. The Servicer shall indemnify the Depositor, the Trustee, the NIMS Insurer, any successor servicer and the Trust Fund for any loss, liability or damage resulting from any claim by the related Advancing Person, except to the extent that such claim, loss, liability or damage resulted from or arose out of negligence, recklessness or willful misconduct or breach of its duties hereunder on the part of the Depositor, the Trustee, the NIMS Insurer or any successor servicer. Any amendment to this Section 3.30 or to any other provision of this Agreement that may be necessary or appropriate to effect the terms of an Advance Facility as described generally in this Section 3.30, including amendments to add provisions relating to a successor servicer, may be entered into by the Trustee, the Depositor and the Servicer without the consent of any Certificateholder but the consent of the NIMS Insurer, provided such amendment complies with Section 11.01 hereof. All reasonable costs and expenses (including attorneys' fees) of each party hereto of any such amendment shall be borne solely by the Servicer. Prior to entering into an Advance Facility, the Servicer shall notify the Advancing Person in writing that: (a) the Advances and/or Servicing Advances purchased, financed by and/or pledged to the Advancing Person are obligations owed to the Servicer on a non-recourse basis payable only from the cash flows and proceeds received under this Agreement for reimbursement of Advances and/or Servicing Advances only to the extent provided herein, and the Trustee and the Trust are not otherwise obligated or liable to repay any Advances and/or Servicing Advance financed by the Advancing Person and (b) the Trustee shall not have any responsibility to track or monitor the administration of the Advance Facility between the Servicer and the Advancing Person.

(e) On each Distribution Date, after making the distributions of the Available Funds, Net Monthly Excess Cashflow and amounts on deposit in the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account as set forth above, the Trustee shall distribute the amount on deposit in the Swap Account as follows: (i) to the Swap Provider, any Net Swap Payment owed to the Swap Provider pursuant to the Interest Rate Swap Agreement for such Distribution Date; (ii) to the Swap Provider, any Swap Termination Payment owed to the Swap Provider not due to a Swap Provider Trigger Event pursuant to the Interest Rate Swap Agreement; (iii) concurrently, to each Class of Class A Certificates, the related Monthly Interest Distributable Amount and Unpaid Interest Shortfall Amount remaining undistributed after the distributions of the Group I Interest Remittance Amount and the Group II Interest Remittance Amount, on a PRO RATA basis based on such respective remaining Monthly Interest Distributable Amount and Unpaid Interest Shortfall Amount; (iv) sequentially, to the Class M-1, Class M-2, Class M-3, Class M-4, Class M-5, Class M-6, Class M-7, Class M-8, Class M-9 and Class M-10 Certificates, in that order, the related Monthly Interest Distributable Amount and Unpaid Interest Shortfall Amount, to the extent remaining undistributed after the distributions of the Group I Interest Remittance Amount, the Group II Interest Remittance Amount and the Net Monthly Excess Cashflow; (v) to the Holders of the Class or Classes of Certificates then entitled to receive distributions in respect of principal, in an amount equal to any Extra Principal Distribution Amount, without taking into account amounts, if any, received under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, distributable to such Holders as part of the Group I Principal Distribution Amount and/or the Group II Principal Distribution Amount, after taking into account distributions made pursuant to Section 4.01(a)(4)(i); (vi) sequentially to the Class M-1, Class M-2, Class M-3, Class M-4, Class M-5, Class M-6, Class M-7, Class M-8, Class M-9 and Class M-10 Certificates, in that order, in each case up to the related Allocated Realized Loss Amount related to such Certificates for such Distribution Date remaining undistributed after distribution of the Net Monthly Excess Cashflow; (vii) concurrently, to each Class of Class A Certificates, the related Net WAC Rate Carryover Amount, to the extent remaining undistributed after distributions are made from the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account, on a PRO RATA basis based on such respective Net WAC Rate Carryover Amounts remaining; and (viii) sequentially, to the Class M-1, Class M-2, Class M-3, Class M-4, Class M-5, Class M-6, Class M-7, Class M-8, Class M-9 and Class M-10 Certificates, in that order, the related Net WAC Rate Carryover Amount, to the extent remaining undistributed after distributions are made from the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account. (f) On each Distribution Date, all amounts representing Prepayment Charges in respect of the Mortgage Loans received during the related Prepayment Period and any Servicer Prepayment Charge Amounts paid by the Servicer during the related Prepayment Period will be withdrawn from the Distribution Account and distributed by the Trustee to the Holders of the Class P Certificates and shall not be available for distribution to the Holders of any other Class of Certificates. The payment of the foregoing amounts to the Holders of the Class P Certificates shall not reduce the Certificate Principal Balances thereof. (g) The Trustee shall make distributions in respect of a Distribution Date to each Certificateholder of record on the related Record Date (other than as provided in Section 10.01 respecting the final distribution), in the case of Certificateholders of the Regular Certificates, by check or money order mailed to such Certificateholder at the address appearing in the Certificate Register, or by wire transfer. Distributions among Certificateholders shall be made in proportion to the Percentage Interests evidenced by the Certificates held by such Certificateholders. (h) Each distribution with respect to a Book-Entry Certificate shall be paid to the Depository, which shall credit the amount of such distribution to the accounts of its Depository Participants in accordance with its normal procedures. Each Depository Participant shall be responsible for disbursing such distribution to the Certificate Owners that it represents and to each indirect participating brokerage firm (a "brokerage firm" or "indirect participating firm") for which it acts as agent. Each brokerage firm shall be responsible for disbursing funds to the Certificate Owners that it represents. All such credits and disbursements with respect to a Book-Entry Certificate are to be made by the Depository and the Depository Participants in accordance with the provisions of the Certificates. None of the Trustee, the Depositor or the Servicer shall have any responsibility therefor except as otherwise provided by applicable law. On each Distribution Date, following the foregoing distributions, an amount equal to the amount of Subsequent Recoveries deposited into the Collection Account pursuant to Section 3.10 shall be applied to increase the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class of Certificates with the Highest Priority up to the extent of such Realized Losses previously allocated to that Class of Certificates pursuant to Section 4.08. An amount equal to the amount of any remaining Subsequent Recoveries shall be applied to increase the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class of Certificates with the next Highest Priority, up to the amount of such Realized Losses previously allocated to that Class of Certificates pursuant to Section 4.08. Holders of such Certificates will not be entitled to any distribution in respect of interest on the amount of such increases for any Interest Accrual Period preceding the Distribution Date on which such increase occurs. Any such increases shall be applied to the Certificate Principal Balance of each Certificate of such Class in accordance with its respective Percentage Interest. (i) It is the intention of all of the parties hereto that the Class C Certificates receive all principal and interest received by the Trust on the Mortgage Loans that is not otherwise distributable to any other Class of Regular Certificates or REMIC Regular Interests and that the Residual Certificates are to receive no principal and interest. If the Trustee determines that the Residual Certificates are entitled to any distributions, the Trustee, prior to any such distribution to any Residual Certificate, shall notify the Depositor of such impending distribution but shall make such distribution in accordance with the terms of this Agreement until this Agreement is amended as specified in the following sentence. Upon such notification, the Depositor will request an amendment to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to revise such mistake in the distribution provisions. The Residual Certificate Holders, by acceptance of their Certificates, and the Servicer(s), hereby agree to any such amendment and no further consent shall be necessary, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 11.01 of this Pooling and Servicing Agreement; provided, however, that such amendment shall otherwise comply with Section 11.01 hereof.

The Trustee will make such statement (and, at its option, any additional files containing the same information in an alternative format) available each month to Certificateholders, the NIMS Insurer, the Credit Risk Manager and the Rating Agencies via the Trustee's internet website. The Trustee's internet website shall initially be located at "https://www.tss.db.com/invr". Assistance in using the website can be obtained by calling the Trustee's customer service desk at (800) 735-7777. Parties that are unable to use the above distribution option are entitled to have a paper copy mailed to them via first class mail by calling the customer service desk and indicating such. The Trustee shall have the right to change the way such statements are distributed in order to make such distribution more convenient and/or more accessible to the above parties and the Trustee shall provide timely and adequate notification to all above parties regarding any such changes. As a condition to access to the Trustee's internet website, the Trustee may require registration and the acceptance of a disclaimer. The Trustee will not be liable for the dissemination of information in accordance with this Agreement. The Trustee shall also be entitled to rely on but shall not be responsible for the content or accuracy of any information provided by third parties for purposes of preparing the Distribution Date statement and may affix thereto any disclaimer it deems appropriate in its reasonable discretion (without suggesting liability on the part of any other party thereto). In the case of information furnished pursuant to subclauses (i) through (iii) above, the amounts shall be expressed in a separate section of the report as a dollar amount for each Class for each $1,000 original dollar amount as of the Cut-off Date. (b) Within a reasonable period of time after the end of each calendar year, the Trustee shall, upon written request, furnish to the NIMS Insurer and each Person who at any time during the calendar year was a Certificateholder of a Regular Certificate, if requested in writing by such Person, such information as is reasonably necessary to provide to such Person a statement containing the information set forth in subclauses (i) and (ii) above, aggregated for such calendar year or applicable portion thereof during which such Person was a Certificateholder. Such obligation of the Trustee shall be deemed to have been satisfied to the extent that substantially comparable information shall be prepared and furnished by the Trustee to Certificateholders pursuant to any requirements of the Code as are in force from time to time. (c) On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall make available to the NIMS Insurer and the Residual Certificateholders a copy of the reports forwarded to the Regular Certificateholders in respect of such Distribution Date with such other information as the Trustee deems necessary or appropriate. (d) Within a reasonable period of time after the end of each calendar year, the Trustee shall deliver to the NIMS Insurer, upon request, and each Person who at any time during the calendar year was a Residual Certificateholder, if requested in writing by such Person, such information as is reasonably necessary to provide to such Person a statement containing the information provided pursuant to the previous paragraph aggregated for such calendar year or applicable portion thereof during which such Person was a Residual Certificateholder. Such obligation of the Trustee shall be deemed to have been satisfied to the extent that substantially comparable information shall be prepared and furnished to Certificateholders by the Trustee pursuant to any requirements of the Code as from time to time in force. SECTION 4.04 Remittance Reports; Advances. (a) By the second Business Day following each Determination Date, but in no event later than such date which would allow the indenture trustee to submit a claim to the NIMS Insurer under the Indenture so as to allow a timely payment by the NIMS Insurer under the insurance policy related to the notes insured by the NIMS Insurer, the Servicer shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Trustee by telecopy or electronic mail (or by such other means as the Servicer and the Trustee may agree from time to time) up to two Remittance Reports with respect to the related Distribution Date, which Remittance Reports the Trustee shall use in preparing the statement pursuant to Section 4.03. No later than the second Business Day following each Determination Date, the Servicer shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Trustee in addition to the information provided on the Remittance Report, such other information reasonably available to it with respect to the Mortgage Loans as the Trustee may reasonably require to perform the calculations necessary to make the distributions contemplated by Section 4.01 and to prepare the statements to Certificateholders contemplated by Section 4.03. The Trustee shall not be responsible to recompute, recalculate or verify any information provided to it by the Servicer. (b) The amount of Advances to be made by the Servicer for any Distribution Date shall equal, subject to Section 4.04(d), the sum of (i) the aggregate amount of Monthly Payments (net of the related Servicing Fee), due during the related Due Period in respect of the Mortgage Loans, which Monthly Payments were delinquent on a contractual basis as of the Close of Business on the related Determination Date and (ii) with respect to each REO Property, which REO Property was acquired during or prior to the related Due Period and as to which REO Property an REO Disposition did not occur during the related Due Period, an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the REO Imputed Interest on such REO Property for the most recently ended calendar month, over the net income from such REO Property transferred to the Distribution Account pursuant to Section 3.24 for distribution on such Distribution Date. On or before 3:00 p.m. New York time on the Servicer Remittance Date, the Servicer shall remit in immediately available funds to the Trustee for deposit in the Distribution Account an amount equal to the aggregate amount of Advances, if any, to be made in respect of the Mortgage Loans and REO Properties for the related Distribution Date either (i) from its own funds or (ii) from the Collection Account, to the extent of funds held therein for future distribution (in which case it will cause to be made an appropriate entry in the records of Collection Account that amounts held for future distribution have been, as permitted by this Section 4.04, used by the Servicer in discharge of any such Advance) or (iii) in the form of any combination of (i) and (ii) aggregating the total amount of Advances to be made by the Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loans and REO Properties. Any amounts held for future distribution used by the Servicer to make an Advance as permitted in the preceding sentence shall be appropriately reflected in the Servicer's records and replaced by the Servicer by deposit in the Collection Account on or before any future Servicer Remittance Date to the extent that the Available Funds for the related Distribution Date (determined without regard to Advances to be made on the Servicer Remittance Date) shall be less than the total amount that would be distributed to the Classes of Certificateholders pursuant to Section 4.01 on such Distribution Date if such amounts held for future distributions had not been so used to make Advances. The Trustee will provide notice to the NIMS Insurer and the Servicer by telecopy by the Close of Business on any Servicer Remittance Date in the event that the amount remitted by the Servicer to the Trustee on such date is less than the Advances required to be made by the Servicer for the related Distribution Date, as set forth in the related Remittance Report. (c) The obligation of the Servicer to make such Advances is mandatory, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement but subject to (d) below, and, with respect to any Mortgage Loan, shall continue until the Mortgage Loan is paid in full or until all Liquidation Proceeds thereon have been recovered, or a Final Recovery Determination has been made thereon. (d) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no Advance or Servicing Advance shall be required to be made hereunder by the Servicer if such Advance or Servicing Advance would, if made, constitute a Nonrecoverable Advance. The determination by the Servicer that it has made a Nonrecoverable Advance or that any proposed Advance or Servicing Advance, if made, would constitute a Nonrecoverable Advance, shall be evidenced by an Officers' Certificate of the Servicer delivered to the NIMS Insurer, the Depositor and the Trustee. Furthermore, the Servicer shall not be required to advance Relief Act Interest Shortfalls. SECTION 4.05 Pre-Funding Accounts. (a) No later than the Closing Date, the Trustee shall establish and maintain two segregated trust accounts that are each Eligible Accounts, which shall be titled "[________]" (the "Group I Pre-Funding Account") and "[________]" (the "Group II Pre-Funding Account"). The Trustee shall, promptly upon receipt, deposit in the applicable Pre-Funding Account and retain therein the Original Group I Pre-Funded Amount and the Original Group II Pre-Funded Amount, as applicable, remitted on the Closing Date to the Trustee by the Depositor. Funds deposited in the Pre-Funding Accounts shall be held in trust by the Trustee for the Certificateholders for the uses and purposes set forth herein. (b) The Trustee will invest funds deposited in the Pre-Funding Accounts as directed by the Depositor in Permitted Investments with a maturity date (i) no later than the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if a Person other than the Trustee or an Affiliate manages or advises such investment, (ii) no later than the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if the Trustee or an Affiliate manages or advises such investment or (iii) within one Business Day of the Trustee's receipt thereof. For federal income tax purposes, the Depositor shall be the owner of the Pre-Funding Accounts and shall report all items of income, deduction, gain or loss arising therefrom. All income and gain realized from investment of funds deposited in the Pre-Funding Accounts shall be transferred to the Depositor. The Depositor shall deposit in the Pre-Funding Accounts the amount of any net loss incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment immediately upon realization of such loss without any right of reimbursement therefor. At no time will the Pre-Funding Accounts be assets of any REMIC created hereunder. (c) Amounts on deposit in the Pre-Funding Accounts shall be withdrawn by the Trustee as follows: (i) On any Subsequent Transfer Date, the Trustee shall withdraw from the Group I Pre-Funding Account or the Group II Pre-Funding Account, as applicable, an amount equal to 100% of the Stated Principal Balances of the Subsequent Group I Mortgage Loans or the Subsequent Group II Mortgage Loans, as applicable, transferred and assigned to the Trustee for deposit in the Mortgage Pool on such Subsequent Transfer Date and pay such amount to or upon the order of the Depositor upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 2.08 with respect to such transfer and assignment; (ii) If the amount on deposit in the Pre-Funding Accounts (exclusive of any investment income therein) has not been reduced to zero during the Funding Period, on the day immediately following the termination of the Funding Period, the Trustee shall deposit into the Distribution Account any amounts remaining in the Pre-Funding Accounts (exclusive of any investment income therein) for distribution in accordance with the terms hereof; (iii) Pay to the Depositor any income and gain realized from the investment of funds in the Pre-Funding Accounts; (iv) To withdraw any amount not required to be deposited in the Pre-Funding Accounts or deposited therein in error; and (v) To clear and terminate the Pre-Funding Accounts upon the earlier to occur of (A) the Distribution Date immediately following the end of the Funding Period and (B) the termination of this Agreement, with any amounts remaining on deposit therein being paid to the Holders of the Certificates then entitled to distributions in respect of principal. Withdrawals pursuant to clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) shall be treated as contributions of cash to REMIC 1 on the date of withdrawal. SECTION 4.06 Interest Coverage Accounts. (a) If amounts are required to be deposited in the Interest Coverage Accounts, no later than the Closing Date, the Trustee shall establish and maintain a segregated non-interest bearing trust account that is an Eligible Account, which shall be titled (i) "[________]" (the "Group I Interest Coverage Account") and (ii) "[________]" (the "Group II Interest Coverage Account"). The Trustee shall, promptly upon receipt, deposit in each Interest Coverage Account and retain therein the related Interest Coverage Amount, remitted on the Closing Date to the Trustee by the Depositor. Funds deposited in the Interest Coverage Accounts shall be held in trust by the Trustee for the Certificateholders for the uses and purposes set forth herein. (b) The Trustee shall invest funds deposited in the Interest Coverage Accounts in Permitted Investments of the kind described in clauses (i), (v) or (vi) of the definition of Permitted Investments, as specified in a written direction from the Depositor, with a maturity date no later than the second Business Day preceding each Distribution Date. For federal income tax purposes, the holder of the largest Percentage Interest of the Residual Certificates shall be the owner of the Interest Coverage Accounts and shall report all items of income, deduction, gain or loss arising therefrom. At no time shall either Interest Coverage Account be an asset of any Trust REMIC. All income and gain realized from investment of funds deposited in the Interest Coverage Accounts shall be for the sole and exclusive benefit of the Depositor and shall be remitted by the Trustee to the Depositor on the first Business Day following each Distribution Date. The Depositor shall deposit in the Interest Coverage Accounts the amount of any net loss incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment immediately upon realization of such loss. (c) On each Distribution Date during the Funding Period and on the last day of the Funding Period, the Trustee shall withdraw from the related Interest Coverage Account and deposit in the Distribution Account an amount equal to 30 days' interest on the excess, if any, of the related Original Pre-Funded Amount, over the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of related Subsequent Mortgage Loans that both (i) had a Due Date during the Due Period relating to such Distribution Date and (ii) had a Subsequent Cut-off Date prior to the first day of the month in which such Distribution Date occurs, at a per annum rate equal to the weighted average Pass-Through Rate of the related Offered Certificates for such Distribution Date, with the Pass-Through Rate on the related Offered Certificates, solely for the purposes of the foregoing calculation, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the actual number of days in the Accrual Period for such Class for such Distribution Date, and the denominator of which is 30. Such withdrawal and deposit shall be treated as a contribution of cash by the Servicer to REMIC I. Immediately following any such withdrawal and deposit, and immediately following the conveyance of any Subsequent Mortgage Loans to the Trust on any Subsequent Transfer Date, the Trustee shall withdraw from the Interest Coverage Accounts and remit to the Depositor or its designee an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the amount remaining in such Interest Coverage Account over the amount that would be required to be withdrawn therefrom (assuming sufficient funds therein) pursuant to the second preceding sentence on each subsequent Distribution Date, if any, that shall occur during the Funding Period or that shall be the last day of the Funding Period, if no Subsequent Mortgage Loans were acquired by the Trust Fund after the end of the Prepayment Period relating to the current Distribution Date (assuming that LIBOR remains constant at the level of LIBOR applicable to the calculation of the Pass-Through Rate for the Class A Certificates and Mezzanine Certificates for the current Distribution Date). (d) Upon the earlier of (i) the Distribution Date immediately following the end of the Funding Period, (ii) the reduction of the aggregate Certificate Principal Balance of the Class A Certificates and the Mezzanine Certificates to zero or (iii) the termination of this Agreement in accordance with Section 10.01, any amount remaining on deposit in the Interest Coverage Accounts after distributions pursuant to paragraph (c) above shall be withdrawn by the Trustee and paid to the Depositor or its designee. SECTION 4.07 Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account. No later than the Closing Date, the Trustee shall establish and maintain with itself a separate, segregated trust account titled, "[________]." All amounts deposited in the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account shall be distributed to the Holders of the Adjustable-Rate Certificates in the manner set forth in Section 4.01(d). On each Distribution Date as to which there is a Net WAC Rate Carryover Amount payable to the Adjustable-Rate Certificates, the Trustee has been directed by the Class C Certificateholders to, and therefore will, deposit into the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account the amounts described in Section 4.01(d)(iv), rather than distributing such amounts to the Class C Certificateholders. In addition, any payments received by the Trustee under the Cap Contract on each Distribution Date will be deposited into the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account. On each such Distribution Date, the Trustee shall hold all such amounts for the benefit of the Holders of the Adjustable-Rate Certificates, and will distribute such amounts to the Holders of the Adjustable-Rate Certificates in the amounts and priorities set forth in Section 4.01(d). On each Distribution Date, any amounts remaining in the Net WAC Rate Reserve Account (representing payments received by the Trustee under the Cap Contract) after the payment of any Net WAC Rate Carryover Amounts on the Adjustable-Rate Certificates for such Distribution Date, shall be payable to the Trustee. For so long as any Adjustable-Rate Certificates are beneficially owned by the Depositor or any of its Affiliates, the Depositor shall refund or cause such Affiliate to refund any amounts paid to it under the Cap Contract to the Trustee who shall, pursuant to the terms of the Cap Contract, return such amount to the counterparty thereunder. It is the intention of the parties hereto that, for federal and state income and state and local franchise tax purposes, the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account be disregarded as an entity separate from the Holder of the Class C Certificates unless and until the date when either (a) there is more than one Class C Certificateholder or (b) any Class of Certificates in addition to the Class C Certificates is recharacterized as an equity interest in the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account for federal income tax purposes, in which case it is the intention of the parties hereto that, for federal and state income and state and local franchise tax purposes, the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account be treated as a grantor trust. All amounts deposited into the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account (other than amounts received under the Cap Contract) shall be treated as amounts distributed by REMIC 4 to the Holder of the Class C Interest and by REMIC 5 to the Holder of the Class C Certificates. The Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account will be an "outside reserve fund" within the meaning of Treasury regulation Section 1.860G-2(h). Upon the termination of the Trust, or the payment in full of the Adjustable-Rate Certificates, all amounts remaining on deposit in the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account will be released by the Trust and distributed to the Holder of the Class C Certificates or its designee. The Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account will be part of the Trust but not part of any REMIC and any payments to the Holders of the Adjustable-Rate Certificates of Net WAC Rate Carryover Amounts will not be payments with respect to a "regular interest" in a REMIC within the meaning of Code Section 860(G)(a)(1). By accepting a Class C Certificate, each Class C Certificateholder hereby agrees to direct the Trustee, and the Trustee hereby is directed, to deposit into the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account the amounts described above on each Distribution Date as to which there is any Net WAC Rate Carryover Amount rather than distributing such amounts to the Class C Certificateholders. By accepting a Class C Certificate, each Class C Certificateholder further agrees that such direction is given for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is acknowledged by such acceptance. Amounts on deposit in the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account shall remain uninvested. For federal tax return and information reporting, the right of the Holders of the Adjustable-Rate Certificates to receive payments from the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account in respect of any Net WAC Cap Carry Forward Amounts may have more than a DE MINIMIS value. SECTION 4.08 Distributions on the REMIC Regular Interests. (a) On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall cause in the following order of priority, the following amounts which shall be deemed to be distributed by REMIC 1 to REMIC 2 on account of the REMIC 1 Regular Interests or withdrawn from the Distribution Account and distributed to the holders of the Class R Certificates (in respect of the Class R-1 Interest), as the case may be: With respect to the Group I Mortgage Loans: (1)(i) to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1, REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1PF and REMIC 1 Regular Interest LTP in an amount equal to (A) the Uncertificated Accrued Interest for each REMIC 1 Regular Interest for such Distribution Date, plus (B) any amounts in respect thereof remaining unpaid from previous Distribution Dates; and (ii) to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LTP, on the Distribution Date immediately following the expiration of the latest Prepayment Charge as identified on the Prepayment Charge Schedule or any Distribution Date thereafter until $100 has been distributed pursuant to this clause; (2) to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1 and REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1PF, in an amount equal to the remainder of the Available Funds for such Distribution Date after the distributions made pursuant to clause (1) above, allocated as follows: (a) first, to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1 is reduced to zero; then, to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1PF, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1PF is reduced to zero; provided however, with respect to the first Distribution Date, principal payments on the Initial Group I Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1 until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of each such REMIC 1 Regular Interest has been reduced to zero, and all principal payments on the Subsequent Group I Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1PF until the Uncertificated Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; and (b) any remaining amount to the Holders of the Class R Certificates (in respect of the Class R-1 Interest). With respect to the Group II Mortgage Loans: (1) to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2 and REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2PF in an amount equal to (A) the Uncertificated Accrued Interest for each REMIC 1 Regular Interest for such Distribution Date, plus (B) any amounts in respect thereof remaining unpaid from previous Distribution Dates; (2) to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2 and REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2PF, in an amount equal to the remainder of the Available Funds for such Distribution Date after the distributions made pursuant to clause (1) above, allocated as follows: (a) first, to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2 is reduced to zero; then, to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2PF, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2PF is reduced to zero; provided however, with respect to the first Distribution Date, principal payments on the Initial Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2 until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of each such REMIC 1 Regular Interest has been reduced to zero, and all principal payments on the Subsequent Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2PF until the Uncertificated Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; and (b) any remaining amount to the Holders of the Class R Certificates (in respect of the Class R-1 Interest). On each Distribution Date, all amounts representing Prepayment Charges in respect of the Mortgage Loans received during the related Prepayment Period will be distributed by REMIC 1 to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LTP. The payment of the foregoing amounts to the Holders of REMIC 1 Regular Interest LTP shall not reduce the Uncertificated Principal Balance thereof. (b) On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall cause in the following order of priority, the following amounts which shall be deemed to be distributed by REMIC 2 to REMIC 3 on account of the REMIC 2 Regular Interests or withdrawn from the Distribution Account and distributed to the holders of the Class R Certificates (in respect of the Class R-2 Interest), as the case may be: (1) to Holders of each of REMIC 2 Regular Interest I and REMIC 2 Regular Interest I-1-A through I-40-B, pro rata, in an amount equal to (A) Uncertificated Accrued Interest for such REMIC 2 Regular Interests for such Distribution Date, plus (B) any amounts payable in respect thereof remaining unpaid from previous Distribution Dates; (2) to the extent of amounts remaining after the distributions made pursuant to clause (A) above, payments of principal shall be allocated as follows: first, to REMIC 2 Regular interests I-1-A through I-40-B starting with the lowest numerical denomination until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of each such REMIC 2 Regular Interest is reduced to zero, provided that, for REMIC 2 Regular Interests with the same numerical denomination, such payments of principal shall be allocated pro rata between such REMIC 2 Regular Interests, and second, to the extent of the Overcollateralization Release Amounts, to REMIC 2 Regular Interest I-40B until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of such REMIC 2 Regular Interest is reduced to zero; and (3) to the Holders of REMIC 2 Regular Interest P, (A) on each Distribution Date, 100% of the amount paid in respect of Prepayment Charges and (B) on the Distribution Date immediately following the expiration of the latest Prepayment Charge as identified on the Prepayment Charge Schedule or any Distribution Date thereafter until $100 has been distributed pursuant to this clause. (c) On each Distribution Date, the Trustee shall cause in the following order of priority, the following amounts which shall be deemed to be distributed by REMIC 3 to REMIC 4 on account of the REMIC 3 Regular Interests or withdrawn from the Distribution Account and distributed to the holders of the Class R Certificates (in respect of the Class R-3 Interest), as the case may be: (i) first, to the Holders of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIO, in an amount equal to (A) Uncertificated Accrued Interest for such REMIC 3 Regular Interest for such Distribution Date, plus (B) any amounts in respect thereof remaining unpaid from previous Distribution Dates; (ii) second, to the extent of Available Funds, to Holders of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIA1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA2, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA3, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA4, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM2, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM3, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM4, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM5, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM6, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM7, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM8, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM9, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM10, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB2, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB3, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTP, on a PRO RATA basis, in an amount equal to (A) the Uncertificated Accrued Interest for such Distribution Date, plus (B) any amounts in respect thereof remaining unpaid from previous Distribution Dates. Amounts payable as Uncertificated Accrued Interest in respect of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ shall be reduced and deferred when the REMIC 3 Overcollateralization Amount is less than the REMIC 3 Overcollateralization Target Amount, by the lesser of (x) the amount of such difference and (y) the Maximum Uncertificated Accrued Interest Deferral Amount and such amount will be payable to the Holders of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIA1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA2, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA3, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA4, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM2, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM3, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM4, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM5, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM6, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM7, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM8, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM9, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM10, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB2 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB3 in the same proportion as the Overcollateralization Deficiency Amount is allocated to the Corresponding Certificates and the Uncertificated Principal Balance of the REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ shall be increased by such amount; and (iii) third, to the Holders of REMIC 3 Regular Interests, in an amount equal to the remainder of the Available Funds for such Distribution Date after the distributions made pursuant to clause (i) above, allocated as follows: (a) 98.00% of such remainder to the Holders of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTP, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of such Uncertificated REMIC 3 Regular Interest is reduced to zero; provided, however, that REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTP shall not be reduced until the Distribution Date immediately following the expiration of the latest Prepayment Charge as identified on the Prepayment Charge Schedule or any Distribution Date thereafter, at which point such amount shall be distributed to REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTP, until $100 has been distributed pursuant to this clause; (b) 2.00% of such remainder first, to the Holders of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIA1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA2, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA3, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTIIA4, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM2, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM3, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM4, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM5, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM6, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM7, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM8, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM9, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM10, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB1, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB2 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB3, of and in the same proportion as principal payments are allocated to the Corresponding Certificates, until the Uncertificated Principal Balances of such REMIC 3 Regular Interests are reduced to zero, and second, to the Holders of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of such REMIC 3 Regular Interest is reduced to zero; and (c) any remaining amount to the Holders of the Class R Certificates (in respect of the Class R-3 Interest). SECTION 4.09 Allocation of Realized Losses. (a) All Realized Losses on the Mortgage Loans allocated to any Regular Certificate shall be allocated by the Trustee on each Distribution Date as follows: first, to Net Monthly Excess Cashflow; second, to the Class C Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; third, to the Class B-3 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; fourth, to the Class B-2 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; fifth, to the Class B-1 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; sixth, to the Class M-10 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; seventh, to the Class M-9 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; eighth, to the Class M-8 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; ninth, to the Class M-7 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; tenth, to the Class M-6 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; eleventh, to the Class M-5 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; twelfth, to the Class M-4 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; thirteenth, to the Class M-3 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; fourteenth, to the Class M-2 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero and fifteenth, to the Class M-1 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero. All Realized Losses to be allocated to the Certificate Principal Balances of all Classes on any Distribution Date shall be so allocated after the actual distributions to be made on such date as provided above. All references above to the Certificate Principal Balance of any Class of Certificates shall be to the Certificate Principal Balance of such Class immediately prior to the relevant Distribution Date, before reduction thereof by any Realized Losses, in each case to be allocated to such Class of Certificates, on such Distribution Date. Any allocation of Realized Losses to a Mezzanine Certificate on any Distribution Date shall be made by reducing the Certificate Principal Balance thereof by the amount so allocated; any allocation of Realized Losses to a Class C Certificates shall be made first by reducing the amount otherwise payable in respect thereof pursuant to Section 4.01(d)(iv). No allocations of any Realized Losses shall be made to the Certificate Principal Balances of the Class A Certificates or the Class P Certificates. (b) All Realized Losses on the Group I Mortgage Loans shall be allocated by the Trustee on each Distribution Date to the REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1 and REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1PF until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of each such REMIC 1 Regular Interest has been reduced to zero; provided however, with respect to the first Distribution Date, all Realized Losses on the Initial Group I Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1 until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of each such REMIC 1 Regular Interest has been reduced to zero, and all Realized Losses on the Subsequent Group I Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT1PF until the Uncertificated Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero. All Realized Losses on the Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated by the Trustee on each Distribution Date to the REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2 and REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2PF until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of each such REMIC 1 Regular Interest has been reduced to zero; provided however, with respect to the first Distribution Date, all Realized Losses on the Initial Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2 until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of each such REMIC 1 Regular Interest has been reduced to zero, and all Realized Losses on the Subsequent Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC 1 Regular Interest LT2PF until the Uncertificated Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero. (c) With respect to the REMIC 2 Regular Interests, all Realized Losses on the Mortgage Loans shall be allocated shall be allocated by the Trustee on each Distribution Date, first to REMIC 2 Regular Interest I until the Uncertificated Principal Balance has been reduced to zero, and second, to REMIC 2 Regular Interest I-1-A through REMIC 2 Regular Interest I-40-B, starting with the lowest numerical denomination until such REMIC 2 Regular Interest has been reduced to zero, provided that, for REMIC 2 Regular Interests with the same numerical denomination, such Realized Losses shall be allocated pro rata between such REMIC 2 Regular Interests. (d) All Realized Losses on the Mortgage Loans shall be deemed to have been allocated in the specified percentages, as follows: first, to Uncertificated Accrued Interest payable to the REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ up to an aggregate amount equal to the REMIC 3 Interest Loss Allocation Amount, 98% and 2%, respectively; second, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ up to an aggregate amount equal to the REMIC 3 Principal Loss Allocation Amount, 98% and 2%, respectively; third, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB3 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB3 has been reduced to zero; fourth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB2 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB2 has been reduced to zero; fifth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB1 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTB1 has been reduced to zero; sixth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM10 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM10 has been reduced to zero; seventh, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM9 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM9 has been reduced to zero; eighth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM8 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM8 has been reduced to zero; ninth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM7 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM7 has been reduced to zero; tenth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM6 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM6 has been reduced to zero; eleventh, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM5 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM5 has been reduced to zero; twelfth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM4 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM4 has been reduced to zero; thirteenth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM3 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM3 has been reduced to zero; fourteenth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM2 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM2 has been reduced to zero; and fifteenth, to the Uncertificated Principal Balances of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTAA, REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM1 and REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTZZ, 98%, 1% and 1%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Principal Balance of REMIC 3 Regular Interest LTM1 has been reduced to zero. SECTION 4.10 Swap Account. (a) On the Closing Date, there is hereby established a separate trust (the "Supplemental Interest Trust"), into which the Depositor shall deposit the Interest Rate Swap Agreement. The Supplemental Interest Trust shall be maintained by the Supplemental Interest Trust Trustee, who initially, shall be the Trustee. No later than the Closing Date, the Supplemental Interest Trust Trustee shall establish and maintain a separate, segregated trust account to be held in the Supplemental Interest Trust, titled, "Swap Account, Deutsche Bank National Trust Company, as Supplemental Interest Trust Trustee, in trust for the registered Certificateholders of First Franklin Mortgage Loan Trust 2005-FFH4, Asset-Backed Certificates, Series 2005-FFH4." Such account shall be an Eligible Account and funds on deposit therein shall be held separate and apart from, and shall not be commingled with, any other moneys, including, without limitation, other moneys of the Trustee held pursuant to this Agreement. Amounts therein shall be held uninvested. (b) On each Distribution Date, prior to any distribution to any Certificate, the Supplemental Interest Trust Trustee shall deposit into the Swap Account: (i) the amount of any Net Swap Payment or Swap Termination Payment (other than any Swap Termination Payment resulting from a Swap Provider Trigger Event) owed to the Swap Provider (after taking into account any upfront payment received from the counterparty to a replacement interest rate swap agreement) from funds collected and received with respect to the Mortgage Loans prior to the determination of Available Funds. For federal income tax purposes, any amounts paid to the Swap Provider on each Distribution Date shall first be deemed paid to the Swap Provider in respect of REMIC 7 Regular Interest SWAP IO to the extent of the amount distributable on REMIC 7 Regular Interest SWAP IO on such Distribution Date, and any remaining amount shall be deemed paid to the Swap Provider in respect of a Class IO Distribution Amount (as defined below). (c) It is the intention of the parties hereto that, for federal and state income and state and local franchise tax purposes, the Supplemental Interest Trust be disregarded as an entity separate from the Holder of the Class C Certificates unless and until the date when either (a) there is more than one Class C Certificateholder or (b) any Class of Certificates in addition to the Class C Certificates is recharacterized as an equity interest in the Supplemental Interest Trust for federal income tax purposes, in which case it is the intention of the parties hereto that, for federal and state income and state and local franchise tax purposes, the Supplemental Interest Trust be treated as a grantor trust. (d) To the extent that the Supplemental Interest Trust is determined to be a separate legal entity from the Supplemental Interest Trust Trustee, any obligation of the Supplemental Interest Trust Trustee under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement shall be deemed to be an obligation of the Supplemental Interest Trust. (e) The Trustee shall treat the Holders of Certificates (other than the Class P, Class C and Class R Certificates) as having entered into a notional principal contract with respect to the Holders of the Class C Certificates. Pursuant to each such notional principal contract, all Holders of Certificates (other than the Class P, Class C and Class R Certificates) shall be treated as having agreed to pay, on each Distribution Date, to the Holder of the Class C Certificates an aggregate amount equal to the excess, if any, of (i) the amount payable on such Distribution Date on the REMIC 3 Regular Interest corresponding to such Class of Certificates over (ii) the amount payable on such Class of Certificates on such Distribution Date (such excess, a "Class IO Distribution Amount"). A Class IO Distribution Amount payable from interest collections shall be allocated PRO RATA among such Certificates based on the excess of (a) the amount of interest otherwise payable to such Certificates over (ii) the amount of interest payable to such Certificates at a per annum rate equal to the Net WAC Rate, and a Class IO Distribution Amount payable from principal collections shall be allocated to the most subordinate Class of Certificates with an outstanding principal balance to the extent of such balance. In addition, pursuant to such notional principal contract, the Holder of the Class C Certificates shall be treated as having agreed to pay Net WAC Rate Carryover Amounts to the Holders of the Certificates (other than the Class C, Class P and Class R Certificates) in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Any payments to the Certificates from amounts deemed received in respect of this notional principal contract shall not be payments with respect to a Regular Interest in a REMIC within the meaning of Code Section 860G(a)(1). However, any payment from the Certificates (other than the Class C, Class P and Class R Certificates) of a Class IO Distribution Amount shall be treated for tax purposes as having been received by the Holders of such Certificates in respect of their interests in REMIC 3 and as having been paid by such Holders pursuant to the notional principal contract. Thus, each Certificate (other than the Class P and Class R Certificates) shall be treated as representing not only ownership of Regular Interests in REMIC 3, but also ownership of an interest in, and obligations with respect to, a notional principal contract. SECTION 4.11 Tax Treatment of Swap Payments and Swap Termination Payments. For federal income tax purposes, each holder of a Floating Rate Certificate is deemed to own an undivided beneficial ownership interest in a REMIC regular interest and the right to receive payments from either the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account or the Swap Account in respect of the Net WAC Rate Carryover Amount or the obligation to make payments to the Swap Account. For federal income tax purposes, the Trustee will account for payments to each Floating Rate Certificates as follows: each Floating Rate Certificate will be treated as receiving their entire payment from REMIC 3 (regardless of any Swap Termination Payment or obligation under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement) and subsequently paying their portion of any Swap Termination Payment in respect of each such Class' obligation under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement. In the event that any such Class is resecuritized in a REMIC, the obligation under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement to pay any such Swap Termination Payment (or any shortfall in Swap Provider Fee), will be made by one or more of the REMIC Regular Interests issued by the resecuritization REMIC subsequent to such REMIC Regular Interest receiving its full payment from any such Floating Rate Certificate. Resecuritization of any Floating Rate Certificate in a REMIC will be permissible only if the Trust Administrator hereunder is the trustee in such resecuritization. The REMIC regular interest corresponding to a Floating Rate Certificate will be entitled to receive interest and principal payments at the times and in the amounts equal to those made on the certificate to which it corresponds, except that (i) the maximum interest rate of that REMIC regular interest will equal the Net WAC Rate computed for this purpose by limiting the Base Calculation Amount of the Interest Rate Swap Agreement to the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans and (ii) any Swap Termination Payment will be treated as being payable solely from Net Monthly Excess Cashflow. As a result of the foregoing, the amount of distributions and taxable income on the REMIC regular interest corresponding to a Floating Rate Certificate may exceed the actual amount of distributions on the Floating Rate Certificate ARTICLE V THE CERTIFICATES SECTION 5.01 The Certificates. Each of the Adjustable-Rate Certificates, the Class P Certificates, the Class C Certificates and the Residual Certificates shall be substantially in the forms annexed hereto as exhibits, and shall, on original issue, be executed, authenticated and delivered by the Trustee to or upon the order of the Depositor concurrently with the sale and assignment to the Trustee of the Trust Fund. The Adjustable-Rate Certificates shall be initially evidenced by one or more Certificates representing a Percentage Interest with a minimum dollar denomination of $25,000 and integral dollar multiples of $1.00 in excess thereof, provided, that the Adjustable-Rate Certificates must be purchased in minimum total investments of $100,000 per Class and that one Certificate of each such Class of Certificates may be in a different denomination so that the sum of the denominations of all outstanding Certificates of such Class shall equal the Certificate Principal Balance of such Class on the Closing Date. The Class P Certificates, the Class C Certificates and the Residual Certificates are issuable in any Percentage Interests; provided, however, that the sum of all such percentages for each such Class totals 100% and no more than ten Certificates of each Class may be issued and outstanding at any one time. The Certificates shall be executed on behalf of the Trust by manual or facsimile signature on behalf of the Trustee by a Responsible Officer. Certificates bearing the manual or facsimile signatures of individuals who were, at the time when such signatures were affixed, authorized to sign on behalf of the Trustee shall bind the Trust, notwithstanding that such individuals or any of them have ceased to be so authorized prior to the authentication and delivery of such Certificates or did not hold such offices at the date of such Certificate. No Certificate shall be entitled to any benefit under this Agreement or be valid for any purpose, unless such Certificate shall have been manually authenticated by the Trustee substantially in the form provided for herein, and such authentication upon any Certificate shall be conclusive evidence, and the only evidence, that such Certificate has been duly authenticated and delivered hereunder. All Certificates shall be dated the date of their authentication. Subject to Section 5.02(c), the Adjustable-Rate Certificates shall be Book-Entry Certificates. The other Classes of Certificates shall not be Book-Entry Certificates. SECTION 5.02 Registration of Transfer and Exchange of Certificates. (a) The Certificate Registrar shall cause to be kept at the Corporate Trust Office a Certificate Register in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Certificate Registrar shall provide for the registration of Certificates and of transfers and exchanges of Certificates as herein provided. The Trustee shall initially serve as Certificate Registrar for the purpose of registering Certificates and transfers and exchanges of Certificates as herein provided. Upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Certificate at any office or agency of the Certificate Registrar maintained for such purpose pursuant to the foregoing paragraph which office shall initially be the offices of the Trustee's agent located at [________] and, in the case of a Residual Certificate, upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth below, the Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall execute, authenticate and deliver, in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new Certificates of the same aggregate Percentage Interest. At the option of the Certificateholders, Certificates may be exchanged for other Certificates in authorized denominations and the same aggregate Percentage Interests, upon surrender of the Certificates to be exchanged at any such office or agency. Whenever any Certificates are so surrendered for exchange, the Trustee shall execute on behalf of the Trust and authenticate and deliver the Certificates which the Certificateholder making the exchange is entitled to receive. Every Certificate presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall (if so required by the Trustee or the Certificate Registrar) be duly endorsed by, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer satisfactory to the Trustee and the Certificate Registrar duly executed by, the Holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing. In addition, (i) with respect to each Class R Certificate, the holder thereof may exchange, in the manner described above, such Class R Certificate for four separate certificates, each representing such holder's respective Percentage Interest in the Class R-1 Interest, the Class R-2 Interest, the Class R-3 Interest and the Class R-4 Interest that was evidenced by the Class R Certificate being exchanged and (ii) with respect to each Class R-X Certificate, the holder thereof may exchange, in the manner described above, such Class R-X Certificate for three separate certificates, each representing such holder's respective Percentage Interest in the Class R-5 Interest, the Class R-6 Interest and the Class R-7 Interest that was evidenced by the Class R-X Certificate being exchanged. (b) Except as provided in paragraph (c) below, the Book-Entry Certificates shall at all times remain registered in the name of the Depository or its nominee and at all times: (i) registration of such Certificates may not be transferred by the Trustee except to another Depository; (ii) the Depository shall maintain book-entry records with respect to the Certificate Owners and with respect to ownership and transfers of such Certificates; (iii) ownership and transfers of registration of such Certificates on the books of the Depository shall be governed by applicable rules established by the Depository; (iv) the Depository may collect its usual and customary fees, charges and expenses from its Depository Participants; (v) the Trustee shall for all purposes deal with the Depository as representative of the Certificate Owners of the Certificates for purposes of exercising the rights of Holders under this Agreement, and requests and directions for and votes of such representative shall not be deemed to be inconsistent if they are made with respect to different Certificate Owners; (vi) the Trustee may rely and shall be fully protected in relying upon information furnished by the Depository with respect to its Depository Participants and furnished by the Depository Participants with respect to indirect participating firms and Persons shown on the books of such indirect participating firms as direct or indirect Certificate Owners; and (vii) the direct participants of the Depository shall have no rights under this Agreement under or with respect to any of the Certificates held on their behalf by the Depository, and the Depository may be treated by the Trustee and its agents, employees, officers and directors as the absolute owner of the Certificates for all purposes whatsoever. All transfers by Certificate Owners of Book-Entry Certificates shall be made in accordance with the procedures established by the Depository Participant or brokerage firm representing such Certificate Owners. Each Depository Participant shall only transfer Book-Entry Certificates of Certificate Owners that it represents or of brokerage firms for which it acts as agent in accordance with the Depository's normal procedures. The parties hereto are hereby authorized to execute a Letter of Representations with the Depository or take such other action as may be necessary or desirable to register a Book-Entry Certificate to the Depository. In the event of any conflict between the terms of any such Letter of Representation and this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control. (c) If (i)(x) the Depository or the Depositor advises the Trustee in writing that the Depository is no longer willing or able to discharge properly its responsibilities as Depository and (y) the Trustee or the Depositor is unable to locate a qualified successor or (ii) after the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Termination, the Certificate Owners of the Book-Entry Certificates representing Percentage Interests of such Classes aggregating not less than 51% advise the Trustee and Depository through the Financial Intermediaries and the Depository Participants in writing that the continuation of a book-entry system through the Depository to the exclusion of definitive, fully registered certificates (the "Definitive Certificates") to Certificate Owners is no longer in the best interests of the Certificate Owners. Upon surrender to the Certificate Registrar of the Book-Entry Certificates by the Depository, accompanied by registration instructions from the Depository for registration, the Trustee shall, in the case of (i) and (ii) above, execute on behalf of the Trust and authenticate the Definitive Certificates. Neither the Depositor nor the Trustee shall be liable for any delay in delivery of such instructions and may conclusively rely on, and shall be protected in relying on, such instructions. Upon the issuance of Definitive Certificates, the Trustee, the Certificate Registrar, the Servicer, any Paying Agent and the Depositor shall recognize the Holders of the Definitive Certificates as Certificateholders hereunder. (d) No transfer, sale, pledge or other disposition of any Class B Certificate, Class C Certificate, Class P Certificate or Residual Certificate (the "Private Certificates") shall be made unless such disposition is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act"), and any applicable state securities laws or is made in accordance with the 1933 Act and laws. In the event of any such transfer (other than in connection with (i) the initial transfer of any such Certificate by the Depositor to an Affiliate of the Depositor or, in the case of the Class R-X Certificates, the first transfer by an Affiliate of the Depositor, (ii) the transfer of any such Class C, Class P or Residual Certificate to the issuer under the Indenture or the indenture trustee under the Indenture or (iii) a transfer of any such Class C, Class P or Residual Certificate from the issuer under the Indenture or the indenture trustee under the Indenture to the Depositor or an Affiliate of the Depositor), (i) unless such transfer is made in reliance upon Rule 144A (as evidenced by the investment letter delivered to the Trustee, in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit J) under the 1933 Act, the Trustee and the Depositor shall require a written Opinion of Counsel (which may be in-house counsel) acceptable to and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee and the Depositor that such transfer may be made pursuant to an exemption, describing the applicable exemption and the basis therefor, from the 1933 Act or is being made pursuant to the 1933 Act, which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Trustee or the Depositor or (ii) the Trustee shall require the transferor to execute a transferor certificate (in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit L) and the transferee to execute an investment letter (in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit J) acceptable to and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Depositor and the Trustee certifying to the Depositor and the Trustee the facts surrounding such transfer, which investment letter shall not be an expense of the Trustee or the Depositor. The Holder of a Private Certificate desiring to effect such transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Trustee and the Depositor against any liability that may result if the transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with such federal and state laws. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of any such transfer of any Ownership Interest in any Private Certificate that is a Book-Entry Certificate, except with respect to the initial transfer of any such Ownership Interest by the Depositor, such transfer shall be required to be made in reliance upon Rule 144A under the 1933 Act, and the transferor will be deemed to have made each of the transferor representations and warranties set forth Exhibit L hereto in respect of such interest as if it was evidenced by a Definitive Certificate and the transferee will be deemed to have made each of the transferee representations and warranties set forth Exhibit J hereto in respect of such interest as if it was evidenced by a Definitive Certificate. The Certificate Owner of any such Ownership Interest in any such Book-Entry Certificate desiring to effect such transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Trustee and the Depositor against any liability that may result if the transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with such federal and state laws. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no certification or Opinion of Counsel described above in this Section 5.02(d) will be required in connection with the transfer, on the Closing Date, of any Residual Certificate by the Depositor to an "accredited investor" within the meaning of Rule 501 of the 1933 Act. No transfer of a Class C Certificate, Class P Certificate or Residual Certificate or any interest therein shall be made to any Plan subject to ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code, any Person acting, directly or indirectly, on behalf of any such Plan or any Person acquiring such Certificates with "Plan Assets" of a Plan within the meaning of the Department of Labor regulation promulgated at 29 C.F.R. ss. 2510.3-101 ("Plan Assets"), as certified by such transferee in the form of Exhibit M, unless the Trustee is provided with an Opinion of Counsel for the benefit of the Depositor, the Trustee and the Servicer and on which they may rely which establishes to the satisfaction of the Trustee that the purchase of such Certificates is permissible under applicable law, will not constitute or result in any prohibited transaction under ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code and will not subject the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee or the Trust Fund to any obligation or liability (including obligations or liabilities under ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code) in addition to those undertaken in this Agreement, which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee or the Trust Fund. Neither a certification nor an Opinion of Counsel will be required in connection with (i) the initial transfer of any such Certificate by the Depositor to an Affiliate of the Depositor, (ii) the transfer of any such Class C, Class P or Residual Certificate to the issuer under the Indenture or the indenture trustee under the Indenture or (iii) a transfer of any such Class C, Class P or Residual Certificate from the issuer under the Indenture or the indenture trustee under the Indenture to the Depositor or an Affiliate of the Depositor (in which case, the Depositor or any Affiliate thereof shall have deemed to have represented that such Affiliate is not a Plan or a Person investing Plan Assets) and the Trustee shall be entitled to conclusively rely upon a representation (which, upon the request of the Trustee, shall be a written representation) from the Depositor of the status of such transferee as an affiliate of the Depositor. Each beneficial owner of an Offered Certificate or any interest therein acquired when the Supplemental Interest Trust is in existence, shall be deemed to have represented, by virtue of its acquisition or holding of the Offered Certificate, or interest therein, that either (i) it is not a Plan or (ii) (A) it is an accredited investor within the meaning of the Exemption and (B) the acquisition and holding of such Certificate and the separate right to receive payment from the Supplemental Interest Trust are eligible for the exemptive relief available under one of PTCE 95-60 in the case of a Class B Certificate and in the case of the Class A and Mezzanine Certificates PTCE 84-14, 91-38, 90-1, 95-60 and 96-23. Subsequent to the termination of the Supplemental Interest Trust, each Transferee of a Mezzanine Certificate or Class B Certificate will be deemed to have represented by virtue of its purchase or holding of such Certificate (or interest therein) (or in the case a Class B Certificate, must represent) that either (a) such Transferee is not a Plan or purchasing such Certificate with Plan Assets or (b) the following conditions are satisfied: (i) such Transferee is an insurance company, (ii) the source of funds used to purchase or hold such Certificate (or interest therein) is an "insurance company general account" (as defined in U.S. Department of Labor Prohibited Transaction Class Exemption ("PTCE") 95-60, and (iii) the conditions set forth in Sections I and III of PTCE 95-60 have been satisfied. If any Mezzanine Certificate or Private Certificate or any interest therein is acquired or held in violation of the provisions of the two preceding paragraphs, the next preceding permitted beneficial owner will be treated as the beneficial owner of that Certificate retroactive to the date of transfer to the purported beneficial owner. Any purported beneficial owner whose acquisition or holding of any such Certificate or interest therein was effected in violation of the provisions of the two preceding paragraphs shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor, the Servicer, the NIMS Insurer, the Trustee and the Trust from and against any and all liabilities, claims, costs or expenses incurred by those parties as a result of that acquisition or holding. Each Person who has or who acquires any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall be deemed by the acceptance or acquisition of such Ownership Interest to have agreed to be bound by the following provisions and to have irrevocably appointed the Depositor or its designee as its attorney-in-fact to negotiate the terms of any mandatory sale under clause (v) below and to execute all instruments of transfer and to do all other things necessary in connection with any such sale, and the rights of each Person acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate are expressly subject to the following provisions: (i) Each Person holding or acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall be a Permitted Transferee and shall promptly notify the Trustee of any change or impending change in its status as a Permitted Transferee. (ii) No Person shall acquire an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate unless such Ownership Interest is a PRO RATA undivided interest. (iii) In connection with any proposed transfer of any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate, the Trustee shall as a condition to registration of the transfer, require delivery to it, in form and substance satisfactory to it, of each of the following: (A) an affidavit in the form of Exhibit K hereto from the proposed transferee to the effect that such transferee is a Permitted Transferee and that it is not acquiring its Ownership Interest in the Residual Certificate that is the subject of the proposed transfer as a nominee, trustee or agent for any Person who is not a Permitted Transferee; and (B) a covenant of the proposed transferee to the effect that the proposed transferee agrees to be bound by and to abide by the transfer restrictions applicable to the Residual Certificates. (iv) Any attempted or purported transfer of any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate in violation of the provisions of this Section shall be absolutely null and void and shall vest no rights in the purported transferee. If any purported transferee shall, in violation of the provisions of this Section, become a Holder of a Residual Certificate, then the prior Holder of such Residual Certificate that is a Permitted Transferee shall, upon discovery that the registration of transfer of such Residual Certificate was not in fact permitted by this Section, be restored to all rights as Holder thereof retroactive to the date of registration of transfer of such Residual Certificate. The Trustee shall be under no liability to any Person for any registration of transfer of a Residual Certificate that is in fact not permitted by this Section or for making any distributions due on such Residual Certificate to the Holder thereof or taking any other action with respect to such Holder under the provisions of this Agreement so long as the Trustee received the documents specified in clause (iii). The Trustee shall be entitled to recover from any Holder of a Residual Certificate that was in fact not a Permitted Transferee at the time such distributions were made all distributions made on such Residual Certificate. Any such distributions so recovered by the Trustee shall be distributed and delivered by the Trustee to the prior Holder of such Residual Certificate that is a Permitted Transferee. (v) If any Person other than a Permitted Transferee acquires any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate in violation of the restrictions in this Section, then the Trustee shall have the right but not the obligation, without notice to the Holder of such Residual Certificate or any other Person having an Ownership Interest therein, to notify the Depositor to arrange for the sale of such Residual Certificate. The proceeds of such sale, net of commissions (which may include commissions payable to the Depositor or its affiliates in connection with such sale), expenses and taxes due, if any, will be remitted by the Trustee to the previous Holder of such Residual Certificate that is a Permitted Transferee, except that in the event that the Trustee determines that the Holder of such Residual Certificate may be liable for any amount due under this Section or any other provisions of this Agreement, the Trustee may withhold a corresponding amount from such remittance as security for such claim. The terms and conditions of any sale under this clause (v) shall be determined in the sole discretion of the Trustee and it shall not be liable to any Person having an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate as a result of its exercise of such discretion. (vi) If any Person other than a Permitted Transferee acquires any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate in violation of the restrictions in this Section, then the Trustee upon receipt of reasonable compensation will provide to the Internal Revenue Service, and to the persons specified in Sections 860E(e)(3) and (6) of the Code, information needed to compute the tax imposed under Section 860E(e)(5) of the Code on transfers of residual interests to disqualified organizations. The foregoing provisions of this Section shall cease to apply to transfers occurring on or after the date on which there shall have been delivered to the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer, in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer, (i) written notification from each Rating Agency that the removal of the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Section will not cause such Rating Agency to downgrade its rating of the Certificates and (ii) an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such removal will not cause any REMIC created hereunder to fail to qualify as a REMIC. (e) No service charge shall be made for any registration of transfer or exchange of Certificates of any Class, but the Certificate Registrar may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any transfer or exchange of Certificates. All Certificates surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall be canceled by the Certificate Registrar and disposed of pursuant to its standard procedures. SECTION 5.03 Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost or Stolen Certificates. If (i) any mutilated Certificate is surrendered to the Certificate Registrar or the Certificate Registrar receives evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Certificate and (ii) there is delivered to the Trustee, the Depositor, the NIMS Insurer and the Certificate Registrar such security or indemnity as may be required by them to save each of them harmless, then, in the absence of notice to the Trustee or the Certificate Registrar that such Certificate has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, the Trustee shall execute on behalf of the Trust, authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate, a new Certificate of like tenor and Percentage Interest. Upon the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section, the Trustee or the Certificate Registrar may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Trustee and the Certificate Registrar) in connection therewith. Any duplicate Certificate issued pursuant to this Section, shall constitute complete and indefeasible evidence of ownership in the Trust, as if originally issued, whether or not the lost, stolen or destroyed Certificate shall be found at any time. SECTION 5.04 Persons Deemed Owners. The Servicer, the Depositor, the Trustee, the NIMS Insurer, the Certificate Registrar, any Paying Agent and any agent of the Servicer, the Depositor, the Trustee, the NIMS Insurer, the Certificate Registrar or any Paying Agent may treat the Person, including a Depository, in whose name any Certificate is registered as the owner of such Certificate for the purpose of receiving distributions pursuant to Section 4.01 and for all other purposes whatsoever, and none of the Servicer, the Trust, the Trustee nor any agent of any of them shall be affected by notice to the contrary. SECTION 5.05 Appointment of Paying Agent. (a) The Paying Agent shall make distributions to Certificateholders from the Distribution Account pursuant to Section 4.01 and shall report the amounts of such distributions to the Trustee. The duties of the Paying Agent may include the obligation (i) to withdraw funds from the Collection Account pursuant to Section 3.11(a) and for the purpose of making the distributions referred to above and (ii) to distribute statements and provide information to Certificateholders as required hereunder. The Paying Agent hereunder shall at all times be an entity duly organized and validly existing under the laws of the United States of America or any state thereof, authorized under such laws to exercise corporate trust powers and subject to supervision or examination by federal or state authorities. The Paying Agent shall initially be the Trustee. The Trustee may appoint a successor to act as Paying Agent, which appointment shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Depositor and the NIMS Insurer. (b) The Trustee shall cause the Paying Agent (if other than the Trustee) to execute and deliver to the Trustee an instrument in which such Paying Agent shall agree with the Trustee that such Paying Agent shall hold all sums, if any, held by it for payment to the Certificateholders in trust for the benefit of the Certificateholders entitled thereto until such sums shall be paid to such Certificateholders and shall agree that it shall comply with all requirements of the Code regarding the withholding of payments in respect of Federal income taxes due from Certificate Owners and otherwise comply with the provisions of this Agreement applicable to it. ARTICLE VI THE SERVICER AND THE DEPOSITOR SECTION 6.01 Liability of the Servicer and the Depositor. The Servicer shall be liable in accordance herewith only to the extent of the obligations specifically imposed upon and undertaken by Servicer herein. The Depositor shall be liable in accordance herewith only to the extent of the obligations specifically imposed upon and undertaken by the Depositor. SECTION 6.02 Merger or Consolidation of, or Assumption of the Obligations of, the Servicer or the Depositor. Any entity into which the Servicer or Depositor may be merged or consolidated, or any entity resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Servicer or the Depositor shall be a party, or any corporation succeeding to the business of the Servicer or the Depositor, shall be the successor of the Servicer or the Depositor, as the case may be, 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 Servicer shall satisfy all the requirements of Section 7.02 with respect to the qualifications of a successor Servicer. SECTION 6.03 Limitation on Liability of the Servicer and Others. Neither the Servicer nor the Depositor nor any of the directors or officers or employees or agents of the Servicer or the Depositor shall be under any liability to the Trust or the Certificateholders for any action taken or for refraining from the taking of any action by the Servicer or the Depositor in good faith pursuant to this Agreement, or for errors in judgment; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect the Servicer, the Depositor or any such Person against any liability which would otherwise be imposed by reason of its willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of duties of the Servicer or the Depositor, as the case may be, or by reason of its reckless disregard of its obligations and duties as Servicer or Depositor, as the case may be, hereunder. The Servicer and any director or officer or 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 and the Depositor, and any director or officer or employee or agent of the Servicer or the Depositor, shall be indemnified by the Trust and held harmless against any loss, liability or expense incurred in connection with (i) any legal action relating to this Agreement or the Certificates, other than any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of its willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence or by reason of its reckless disregard of its obligations and duties hereunder or by reason of its failure to perform its obligations or duties hereunder and (ii) any breach of a representation or warranty regarding the Mortgage Loans. The Servicer or the Depositor 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 and the interests of the Certificateholders hereunder. In such event, unless the Depositor or the Servicer acts without the consent of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 51% of the Voting Rights, the reasonable legal expenses and costs of such action and any liability resulting therefrom shall be expenses, costs and liabilities of the Trust and the Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed therefor from the Collection Account as and to the extent provided in Section 3.11, any such right of reimbursement being prior to the rights of the Certificateholders to receive any amount in the Collection Account. The Servicer's right to indemnity or reimbursement pursuant to this Section shall survive any resignation or termination of the Servicer pursuant to Section 6.04 or 7.01 with respect to any losses, expenses, costs or liabilities arising prior to such resignation or termination (or arising from events that occurred prior to such resignation or termination). This paragraph shall apply to the Servicer solely in its capacity as Servicer hereunder and in no other capacities. The Credit Risk Manager and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Credit Risk Manager shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Trust Fund against any loss, liability or expense (not including expenses, disbursements and advances incurred or made by the Credit Risk Manager, including the compensation and the expenses and disbursements of its agents and counsel, in the ordinary course of its appointment as Credit Risk Manager or its performance of its duties as such) incurred in connection with any claim or legal action or any pending or threatened claim or legal action relating to this Agreement, the Credit Risk Management Agreement or the Certificates, other than any loss, liability or expense (i) resulting from a breach of the Servicer's obligations and duties under the Pooling Agreement or Credit Risk Manager Agreement for which the Credit Risk Manager is indemnified by the Servicer under the Credit Risk Manager Agreement or (ii) incurred by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of duties under the Credit Risk Manager Agreement or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties thereunder. Any payment to the Credit Risk Manager pursuant to this Section 6.03 shall be prior to any distributions to the Certificateholders. SECTION 6.04 Servicer Not to Resign. The Servicer shall not resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it except (i) upon determination that its duties hereunder are no longer permissible under applicable law or are in material conflict by reason of applicable law with any other activities carried on by it or its subsidiaries or Affiliates, the other activities of the Servicer so causing such a conflict being of a type and nature carried on by the Servicer or its subsidiaries or Affiliates at the date of this Agreement or (ii) upon satisfaction of the following conditions: (a) the Servicer has proposed a successor servicer to the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer in writing and such proposed successor servicer is reasonably acceptable to the Trustee, the Depositor and the NIMS Insurer and the requirements of Section 7.02 and (b) each Rating Agency shall have delivered a letter to the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer prior to the appointment of the successor servicer stating that the proposed appointment of such successor servicer as Servicer hereunder will not result in the reduction or withdrawal of the then current rating of the Certificates; provided, however, that no such resignation by the Servicer shall become effective until such successor servicer or, in the case of (i) above, the Trustee shall have assumed the Servicer's responsibilities and obligations hereunder or the Trustee shall have designated, with the consent of the NIMS Insurer, a successor servicer in accordance with Section 7.02. Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, the Servicer shall not assign or transfer any of its rights, benefits or privileges hereunder to any other Person, or delegate to or subcontract with, or authorize or appoint any other Person to perform any of the duties, covenants or obligations to be performed by the Servicer hereunder. The foregoing prohibition on assignment shall not prohibit the Servicer from designating a Sub-Servicer as payee of any indemnification amount payable to the Servicer hereunder; provided, however, no Sub-Servicer shall be a third-party beneficiary hereunder and the parties hereto shall not be required to recognize any Subservicer as an indemnitee under this Agreement. SECTION 6.05 Delegation of Duties. In the ordinary course of business, the Servicer at any time may delegate any of its duties hereunder to any Person, including any of its Affiliates, who agrees to conduct such duties in accordance with standards comparable to those set forth in Section 3.01. Such delegation shall not relieve the Servicer of its liabilities and responsibilities with respect to such duties and shall not constitute a resignation within the meaning of Section 6.04. Except as provided in Section 3.02, no such delegation is permitted that results in the delegee subservicing any Mortgage Loans. The Servicer shall provide the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer with 60 days prior written notice prior to the delegation of any of its duties to any Person other than any of the Servicer's Affiliates or their respective successors and assigns. SECTION 6.06 Credit Risk Manager. For and on behalf of the Depositor, the Credit Risk Manager will provide reports and recommendations concerning certain delinquent and defaulted Mortgage Loans, and as to the collection of any Prepayment Charges with respect to the Mortgage Loans. Such reports and recommendations will be based upon information provided to the Credit Risk Manager pursuant to the Credit Risk Management Agreement, and the Credit Risk Manager shall look solely to the Servicer for all information and data (including loss and delinquency information and data) relating to the servicing of the Mortgage Loans. Upon any termination of the Credit Risk Manager or the appointment of a successor Credit Risk Manager, the Trustee, if it has been notified in writing of such termination or appointment, shall give written notice thereof to the Servicer and the Depositor. If Holders of the Certificates entitled to 66 2/3% or more of the Voting Rights request in writing to the Trustee to terminate the Credit Risk Manager under this Agreement, the Credit Risk Manager shall be removed pursuant to this Section 6.06. Upon receipt of such notice, the Trustee shall provide written notice to the Credit Risk Manager of its removal, which shall be effective upon receipt of such notice by the Credit Risk Manager. SECTION 6.07 Inspection. The Servicer, in its capacity as Servicer, shall afford the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer, upon reasonable notice, during normal business hours, access to all records maintained by the Servicer in respect of its rights and obligations hereunder and access to officers of the Servicer responsible for such obligations. Upon request, the Servicer shall furnish to the Trustee its most recent publicly available financial statements and such other information relating to its capacity to perform its obligations under this Agreement.

New York time on the Servicer Remittance Date), the Trustee shall, at the direction of the NIMS Insurer, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer under this Agreement, to the extent permitted by law, and in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof and the Trustee, or a successor servicer appointed in accordance with Section 7.02, shall immediately make such Advance and assume, pursuant to Section 7.02, the duties of a successor Servicer and (y) in the case of (i)(B), (ii), (iii) and (iv) above, the Trustee shall, at the direction of the NIMS Insurer or the Holders of each Class of Regular Certificates evidencing Percentage Interests aggregating not less than 51%, by notice then given in writing to the Servicer (and to the Trustee if given by the NIMS Insurer or the Holders of Certificates), terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer as servicer under this Agreement. Any such notice to the Servicer shall also be given to each Rating Agency, the Depositor and the Servicer. On or after the receipt by the Servicer (and by the Trustee if such notice is given by the Holders) of such written notice, all authority and power of the Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Certificates or the Mortgage Loans or otherwise, shall pass to and be vested in the Trustee pursuant to and under this Section; and, without limitation, and the Trustee is hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of the 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 of each Mortgage Loan and related documents or otherwise. The Servicer agrees to cooperate with the Trustee (or the applicable successor Servicer) in effecting the termination of the responsibilities and rights of the Servicer hereunder, including, without limitation, the delivery to the Trustee of all documents and records requested by it to enable it to assume the Servicer's functions under this Agreement within ten Business Days subsequent to such notice, the transfer within one Business Day subsequent to such notice to the Trustee (or the applicable successor Servicer) for the administration by it of all cash amounts that shall at the time be held by the Servicer and to be deposited by it in the Collection Account, the Distribution Account, any REO Account or any Servicing Account or that have been deposited by the Servicer in such accounts or thereafter received by the Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loans or any REO Property received by the Servicer. All reasonable costs and expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with transferring the Mortgage Files to the successor Servicer and amending this Agreement to reflect such succession as Servicer pursuant to this Section shall be paid by the predecessor Servicer (or if the predecessor Servicer is the Trustee, the initial Servicer) upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs and expenses and to the extent not paid by the Servicer, by the Trust. Notwithstanding the termination of the Servicer hereunder, the Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement of all unpaid Servicing Fees and all unreimbursed Advances and Servicing Advances in the manner and at the times set forth herein. SECTION 7.02 Trustee to Act; Appointment of Successor. (a) From the time the Servicer (and the Trustee, if notice is sent by the Holders) receives a notice of termination pursuant to Section 7.01 or 6.04, the Trustee (or such other successor Servicer as is approved in accordance with this Agreement) shall be the successor in all respects to the Servicer in its capacity as servicer under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for herein and shall be subject to all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities relating thereto placed on the Servicer by the terms and provisions hereof arising on and after its succession. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereto agree that the Trustee, in its capacity as successor Servicer, immediately will assume all of the obligations of the Servicer to make advances. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Trustee, in its capacity as successor Servicer, shall not be responsible for the lack of information and/or documents that it cannot obtain through reasonable efforts. It is understood and agreed by the parties hereto that there will be a period of transition (not to exceed 90 days) before the transition of servicing obligations is fully effective. As compensation therefor, the Trustee (or such other successor Servicer) shall be entitled to such compensation as the Servicer would have been entitled to hereunder if no such notice of termination had been given. Notwithstanding the above, (i) if the Trustee is unwilling to act as successor Servicer or (ii) if the Trustee is legally unable so to act, the Trustee shall appoint or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint, any established housing and home finance institution, bank or other mortgage loan or home equity loan servicer having a net worth of not less than $50,000,000 as the successor to the Servicer hereunder in the assumption of all or any part of the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of the Servicer hereunder; provided, that the appointment of any such successor Servicer shall by approved by the NIMS Insurer (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld), as evidenced by the prior written consent of the NIMS Insurer, and will not result in the qualification, reduction or withdrawal of the ratings assigned to the Certificates by the Rating Agencies as evidenced by a letter to such effect from the Rating Agencies. Pending appointment of a successor to the Servicer hereunder, unless the Trustee is prohibited by law from so acting, the Trustee shall act in such capacity as hereinabove provided. In connection with such appointment and assumption, the successor shall be entitled to receive compensation out of payments on Mortgage Loans in an amount equal to the compensation which the Servicer would otherwise have received pursuant to Section 3.18 (or such other compensation as the Trustee and such successor shall agree, not to exceed the Servicing Fee). The appointment of a successor Servicer shall not affect any liability of the predecessor Servicer which may have arisen under this Agreement prior to its termination as Servicer to pay any deductible under an insurance policy pursuant to Section 3.14 or to reimburse the Trustee pursuant to Section 3.06 or to indemnify the Trustee or the NIMS Insurer pursuant to Section 8.05(b)), nor shall any successor Servicer be liable for any acts or omissions of the predecessor Servicer or for any breach by such Servicer of any of its representations or warranties contained herein or in any related document or agreement. The Trustee and such successor shall take such action, consistent with this Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession. All reasonable Servicing Transfer Costs shall be paid by the predecessor Servicer upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs, and if such predecessor Servicer defaults in its obligation to pay such costs, such costs shall be paid by the successor Servicer or the Trustee (in which case the successor Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, shall be entitled to reimbursement therefor from the assets of the Trust). (b) Any successor to the Servicer, including the Trustee, shall during the term of its service as servicer continue to service and administer the Mortgage Loans for the benefit of Certificateholders, and maintain in force a policy or policies of insurance covering errors and omissions in the performance of its obligations as Servicer hereunder and a fidelity bond in respect of its officers, employees and agents to the same extent as the Servicer is so required pursuant to Section 3.14. SECTION 7.03 Waiver of Defaults. The Majority Certificateholders may, on behalf of all Certificateholders and with the consent of the NIMS Insurer, waive any events permitting removal of the Servicer as servicer pursuant to this Article VII, provided, however, that the Majority Certificateholders may not waive a default in making a required distribution on a Certificate without the consent of the Holder of such Certificate and the consent of the NIMS Insurer. Upon any waiver of a past default, such default shall cease to exist and any Servicer Event of Termination 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 thereto except to the extent expressly so waived. Notice of any such waiver shall be given by the Trustee to the Rating Agencies and the NIMS Insurer. SECTION 7.04 Notification to Certificateholders. (a) Upon any termination or appointment of a successor to the Servicer pursuant to this Article VII or Section 6.04, the Trustee shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Certificateholders at their respective addresses appearing in the Certificate Register, the NIMS Insurer and each Rating Agency. (b) No later than 60 days after the occurrence of any event which constitutes or which, with notice or lapse of time or both, would constitute a Servicer Event of Termination or within five Business Days after a Responsible Officer of the Trustee becomes aware of the occurrence of such an event, the Trustee shall transmit by mail to all Certificateholders and to the NIMS Insurer notice of such occurrence unless such default or Servicer Event of Termination shall have been waived or cured. SECTION 7.05 Survivability of Servicer Liabilities. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, upon termination of the Servicer hereunder, any liabilities of the Servicer which accrued prior to such termination shall survive such termination. ARTICLE VIII THE TRUSTEE SECTION 8.01 Duties of Trustee. The Trustee, prior to the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Termination and after the curing of all Servicer Events of Termination which may have occurred, undertakes to perform such duties and only such duties as are specifically set forth in this Agreement. If a Servicer Event of Termination has occurred (which has not been cured) of which a Responsible Officer has knowledge, the Trustee shall exercise such of the rights and powers vested in it by this Agreement, and use the same degree of care and skill in their exercise, as a prudent man would exercise or use under the circumstances in the conduct of his own affairs. The Trustee, upon receipt of all resolutions, certificates, statements, opinions, reports, documents, orders or other instruments furnished to the Trustee which are specifically required to be furnished pursuant to any provision of this Agreement, shall examine them to determine whether they conform to the requirements of this Agreement; provided, however, that the Trustee will not be responsible for the accuracy or content of any such resolutions, certificates, statements, opinions, reports, documents or other instruments. If any such instrument is found not to conform to the requirements of this Agreement in a material manner the Trustee shall take such action as it deems appropriate to have the instrument corrected, and if the instrument is not corrected to the Trustee's satisfaction, the Trustee will provide notice thereof to the Certificateholders and the NIMS Insurer. No provision of this Agreement shall be construed to relieve the Trustee from liability for its own negligent action, its own negligent failure to act or its own misconduct; provided, however, that: (i) prior to the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Termination, and after the curing of all such Servicer Events of Termination which may have occurred, the duties and obligations of the Trustee shall be determined solely by the express provisions of this Agreement, the Trustee shall not be liable except for the performance of such duties and obligations as are specifically set forth in this Agreement, no implied covenants or obligations shall be read into this Agreement against the Trustee and, in the absence of bad faith on the part of the Trustee, the Trustee may conclusively rely, as to the truth of the statements and the correctness of the opinions expressed therein, upon any certificates or opinions furnished to the Trustee and conforming to the requirements of this Agreement; (ii) the Trustee shall not be personally liable for an error of judgment made in good faith by a Responsible Officer of the Trustee, unless it shall be proved that the Trustee was negligent in ascertaining the pertinent facts; (iii) the Trustee shall not be personally liable with respect to any action taken, suffered or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with the direction of the NIMS Insurer or the Majority Certificateholders relating to the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Trustee, or exercising or omitting to exercise any trust or power conferred upon the Trustee, under this Agreement; and (iv) the Trustee shall not be charged with knowledge of any failure by the Servicer to comply with the obligations of the Servicer referred to in clauses (i) and (ii) of Section 7.01(a) or of the existence of any Servicer Termination Event unless a Responsible Officer of the Trustee at the Corporate Trust Office obtains actual knowledge of such failure or the Trustee receives written notice of such failure from the Depositor, the Servicer, the NIMS Insurer or the Majority Certificateholders. The Trustee shall not be required to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur financial liability in the performance of any of its duties hereunder, or in the exercise of any of its rights or powers, if there is reasonable ground for believing that the repayment of such funds or adequate indemnity against such risk or liability is not reasonably assured to it, and none of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall in any event require the Trustee to perform, or be responsible for the manner of performance of, any of the obligations of the Servicer under this Agreement, except during such time, if any, as the Trustee shall be the successor to, and be vested with the rights, duties, powers and privileges of, the Servicer in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. SECTION 8.02 Certain Matters Affecting the Trustee. (a) Except as otherwise provided in Section 8.01: (i) the Trustee may request and rely upon, and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon, any resolution, Officers' Certificate, certificate of auditors or any other certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, consent, order, appraisal, bond or other paper or document reasonably believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties, and the manner of obtaining consents and of evidencing the authorization of the execution thereof by Certificateholders shall be subject to such reasonable regulations as the Trustee may prescribe; (ii) the Trustee may consult with counsel and any Opinion of Counsel shall be full and complete authorization and protection in respect of any action taken or suffered or omitted by it hereunder in good faith and in accordance with such Opinion of Counsel; (iii) the Trustee shall be under no obligation to exercise any of the rights or powers vested in it by this Agreement, or to institute, conduct or defend any litigation hereunder or in relation hereto, at the request, order or direction of any of the Certificateholders or the NIMS Insurer, pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, unless such Certificateholders or the NIMS Insurer, as applicable, shall have offered to the Trustee reasonable security or indemnity against the costs, expenses and liabilities which may be incurred therein or thereby; the right of the Trustee to perform any discretionary act enumerated in this Agreement shall not be construed as a duty, and the Trustee shall not be answerable for other than its negligence or willful misconduct in the performance of any such act; (iv) the Trustee shall not be personally liable for any action taken, suffered or omitted by it in good faith and believed by it to be authorized or within the discretion or rights or powers conferred upon it by this Agreement; (v) prior to the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Termination and after the curing of all Servicer Events of Termination which may have occurred, the Trustee shall not be bound to make any investigation into the facts or matters stated in any resolution, certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, consent, order, approval, bond or other paper or documents, unless requested in writing to do so by the NIMS Insurer or the Majority Certificateholder; provided, however, that if the payment within a reasonable time to the Trustee of the costs, expenses or liabilities likely to be incurred by it in the making of such investigation is, in the opinion of the Trustee, not reasonably assured to the Trustee by the security afforded to it by the terms of this Agreement, the Trustee may require reasonable indemnity against such cost, expense or liability as a condition to such proceeding. The reasonable expense of every such examination shall be paid by the Servicer or the NIMS Insurer (if requested by the NIMS Insurer) or, if paid by the Trustee, shall be reimbursed by the Servicer or the NIMS Insurer (if requested by the NIMS Insurer) upon demand and, if not reimbursed by the Servicer or the NIMS Insurer (if not requested by the NIMS Insurer), shall be reimbursed by the Trust. Nothing in this clause (v) shall derogate from the obligation of the Servicer to observe any applicable law prohibiting disclosure of information regarding the Mortgagors; (vi) the Trustee shall not be accountable, shall have no liability and makes no representation as to any acts or omissions hereunder of the Servicer until such time as the Trustee may be required to act as Servicer pursuant to Section 7.02 and thereupon only for the acts or omissions of the Trustee as successor Servicer; (vii) the Trustee may execute any of the trusts or powers hereunder or perform any duties hereunder either directly or by or through agents or attorneys, custodians or nominees; (viii) the right of the Trustee to perform any discretionary act enumerated in this Agreement shall not be construed as a duty, and the Trustee shall not be answerable for other than its negligence or willful misconduct in the performance of such act; (ix) the Trustee shall not be personally liable for any loss resulting from the investment of funds held in the Collection Account or the REO Account made at the direction of the Servicer pursuant to Section 3.12; and (x) The Trustee or its Affiliates are permitted to receive compensation that could be deemed to be in the Trustee's economic self-interest for (i) serving as investment adviser, administrator, shareholder, servicing agent, custodian or sub-custodian with respect to certain of the Permitted Investments, (ii) using Affiliates to effect transactions in certain Permitted Investments and (iii) effecting transactions in certain Permitted Investments. Such compensation shall not be considered an amount that is reimbursable or payable pursuant to Section 3.11. In order to comply with its duties under the U.S.A. Patriot Act, the Trustee shall obtain and verify certain information and documentation from the other parties hereto, including, but not limited to, such parties' name, address and other identifying information. SECTION 8.03 Trustee Not Liable for Certificates or Mortgage Loans. The recitals contained herein and in the Certificates (other than the authentication of the Trustee on the Certificates) shall be taken as the statements of the Depositor, and the Trustee assumes no responsibility for the correctness of the same. The Trustee makes no representations as to the validity or sufficiency of this Agreement or of the Certificates (other than the signature and authentication of the Trustee on the Certificates) or of any Mortgage Loan or related document, other than with respect to the Trustee's execution and authentication of the Certificates. The Trustee shall not be accountable for the use or application by the Servicer, or for the use or application of any funds paid to the Servicer in respect of the Mortgage Loans or deposited in or withdrawn from the Collection Account by the Servicer. The Trustee shall at no time have any responsibility or liability for or with respect to the legality, validity and enforceability of any Mortgage or any Mortgage Loan, or the perfection and priority of any Mortgage or the maintenance of any such perfection and priority, or for or with respect to the sufficiency of the Trust or its ability to generate the payments to be distributed to Certificateholders under this Agreement, including, without limitation: the existence, condition and ownership of any Mortgaged Property; the existence and enforceability of any hazard insurance thereon (other than if the Trustee shall assume the duties of the Servicer pursuant to Section 7.02); the validity of the assignment of any Mortgage Loan to the Trustee or of any intervening assignment; the completeness of any Mortgage Loan; the performance or enforcement of any Mortgage Loan (other than if the Trustee shall assume the duties of the Servicer pursuant to Section 7.02); the compliance by the Depositor, the Originator, the Sponsor or the Servicer with any warranty or representation made under this Agreement or in any related document or the accuracy of any such warranty or representation prior to the Trustee's receipt of notice or other discovery of any non-compliance therewith or any breach thereof; any investment of monies by or at the direction of the Servicer or any loss resulting therefrom, it being understood that the Trustee shall remain responsible for any Trust property that it may hold in its individual capacity; the acts or omissions of any of the Servicer (other than if the Trustee shall assume the duties of the Servicer pursuant to Section 7.02), any Sub-Servicer or any Mortgagor; any action of the Servicer (other than if the Trustee shall assume the duties of the Servicer pursuant to Section 7.02), or any Sub- Servicer taken in the name of the Trustee; the failure of the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer to act or perform any duties required of it as agent of the Trustee hereunder; or any action by the Trustee taken at the instruction of the Servicer (other than if the Trustee shall assume the duties of the Servicer pursuant to Section 7.02); provided, however, that the foregoing shall not relieve the Trustee of its obligation to perform its duties under this Agreement, including, without limitation, the Trustee's duty to review the Mortgage Files pursuant to Section 2.01. The Trustee shall have no responsibility for filing any financing or continuation statement in any public office at any time or to otherwise perfect or maintain the perfection of any security interest or lien granted to it hereunder (unless the Trustee shall have become the successor Servicer). SECTION 8.04 Trustee May Own Certificates. The Trustee in its individual or any other capacity may become the owner or pledgee of Certificates with the same rights as it would have if it were not Trustee and may transact any banking and trust business with the Originator, the Servicer, the Depositor or their Affiliates. SECTION 8.05 Trustee Compensation and Expenses. (a) The Trustee shall withdraw from the Distribution Account on each Distribution Date and pay to itself the Trustee Compensation prior to making any distributions to Certificateholders consisting of income earned on amounts on deposit in the Distribution Account. The Trustee shall pay the Custodian (as compensation for the Custodian's services under the Custodial Agreement) any amount payable to the Custodian in accordance with a fee schedule attached as an exhibit to the Custodial Agreement from amounts on deposit in the Distribution Account. In addition, on each Distribution Date the Trustee shall pay the Custodian amounts, if any, from the Distribution Account required to reimburse the Custodian for expenses, costs and liabilities incurred by or reimbursable to the Custodian accordance with the Custodial Agreement, but not otherwise covered by the indemnification to the Custodian contemplated in the next paragraph, as such expenses are set forth in writing by the Custodian to the Trustee by the related Determination Date. The Trustee, or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee, shall be indemnified by the Trust Fund and held harmless against any loss, liability or expense (not including expenses and disbursements incurred or made by the Trustee, including the compensation and the expenses and disbursements of its agents and counsel, in the ordinary course of the Trustee's performance in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement) incurred by the Trustee arising out of or in connection with the acceptance or administration of its obligations and duties under this Agreement, other than any loss, liability or expense (i) resulting from a breach of the Servicer's obligations and duties under this Agreement for which the Trustee is indemnified under Section 8.05(b) or (ii) any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence of the Trustee in the performance of its duties hereunder or by reason of the Trustee's reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder or as a result of a breach of the Trustee's obligations under Article X hereof. It is understood by the parties hereto that a "claim" as used in the preceding sentence includes any claim for indemnification made by the Custodian under Section 22 of the Custodial Agreement; provided such claim for indemnification relates to a loss, liability or expense incurred by the Custodian that either (A) is not an expense or disbursement incurred or made by the Custodian, including the compensation and the expenses and disbursements of its agents and counsel, in the ordinary course of the Custodian's performance in accordance with the provisions of the Custodial Agreement or (B) relates to Mortgage Loans which are in default or as to which default is reasonably foreseeable (as determined by the Servicer and communicated to the Trustee); and provided, further, that the Trustee shall not lose any right it may have to indemnification under this Section 8.05 due to the willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence of the Custodian in the performance of its duties under the Custodial Agreement or by reason of the Custodian's reckless disregard of its obligations and duties under the Custodial Agreement. Any amounts payable to the Trustee, or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee, in respect of the indemnification provided by this Section 8.05(a), or pursuant to any other right of reimbursement from the Trust Fund that the Trustee, or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee, may have hereunder in its capacity as such, may be withdrawn by the Trustee from the Distribution Account at any time. The foregoing indemnity shall survive the resignation or removal of the Trustee. (b) The Servicer agrees to indemnify the Trustee, the NIMS Insurer or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee or the NIMS Insurer from, and hold it harmless against, any loss, liability or expense resulting from a breach of the Servicer's obligations and duties under this Agreement. Such indemnity shall survive the termination or discharge of this Agreement and the resignation or removal of the Trustee and the Servicer for actions prior to such resignation or removal. Any payment hereunder made by the Servicer to the Trustee shall be from the Servicer's own funds, without reimbursement from the Trust Fund therefor. SECTION 8.06 Eligibility Requirements for Trustee. The Trustee hereunder shall at all times be an entity duly organized and validly existing under the laws of the United States of America or any state thereof, authorized under such laws to exercise corporate trust powers, having a combined capital and surplus of at least $50,000,000 and subject to supervision or examination by federal or state authority. If such entity publishes reports of condition at least annually, pursuant to law or to the requirements of the aforesaid supervising or examining authority, then for the purposes of this Section 8.06, the combined capital and surplus of such entity shall be deemed to be its combined capital and surplus as set forth in its most recent report of condition so published. The principal office of the Trustee (other than the initial Trustee) shall be in a state with respect to which an Opinion of Counsel has been delivered to such Trustee and the NIMS Insurer at the time such Trustee is appointed Trustee to the effect that the Trust will not be a taxable entity under the laws of such state. In case at any time the Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of this Section 8.06, the Trustee shall resign immediately in the manner and with the effect specified in Section 8.07. SECTION 8.07 Resignation or Removal of Trustee. The Trustee may at any time resign and be discharged from the trusts hereby created by giving written notice thereof to the NIMS Insurer, the Depositor, the Servicer and each Rating Agency. Upon receiving such notice of resignation, the Depositor shall promptly appoint a successor Trustee acceptable to the NIMS Insurer by written instrument, in duplicate, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the resigning Trustee and one copy to the successor Trustee. If no successor Trustee shall have been so appointed and having accepted appointment within 30 days after the giving of such notice of resignation, the resigning Trustee may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Trustee. If at any time the Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of Section 8.06 and shall fail to resign after written request therefor by the Depositor or the NIMS Insurer or if at any time the Trustee shall be legally unable to act, or shall be adjudged a bankrupt or insolvent, or a receiver of the Trustee or of its property shall be appointed, or any public officer shall take charge or control of the Trustee or of its property or affairs for the purpose of rehabilitation, conservation or liquidation, then the Depositor, the NIMS Insurer or the Servicer may remove the Trustee. If the Depositor, the NIMS Insurer or the Servicer removes the Trustee under the authority of the immediately preceding sentence, the Depositor, with the consent of the NIMS Insurer, shall promptly appoint a successor Trustee by written instrument, in duplicate, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the Trustee so removed and one copy to the successor trustee. The Majority Certificateholders (or the NIMS Insurer upon the failure of the Trustee to perform its obligations hereunder) may at any time remove the Trustee by written instrument or instruments delivered to the Servicer, the Depositor and the Trustee; the Depositor shall thereupon use its best efforts to appoint a successor trustee acceptable to the NIMS Insurer in accordance with this Section. Any resignation or removal of the Trustee and appointment of a successor Trustee pursuant to any of the provisions of this Section 8.07 shall not become effective until acceptance of appointment by the successor Trustee as provided in Section 8.08. SECTION 8.08 Successor Trustee. Any successor Trustee appointed as provided in Section 8.07 shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the NIMS Insurer, the Depositor, the Servicer and to its predecessor Trustee an instrument accepting such appointment hereunder, and thereupon the resignation or removal of the predecessor Trustee shall become effective, and such successor Trustee, without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall become fully vested with all the rights, powers, duties and obligations of its predecessor hereunder, with like effect as if originally named as Trustee. The Depositor, the Servicer and the predecessor Trustee shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things as may reasonably be required for fully and certainly vesting and confirming in the successor Trustee all such rights, powers, duties and obligations. No successor Trustee shall accept appointment as provided in this Section 8.08 unless at the time of such acceptance such successor Trustee shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 8.06 and the appointment of such successor Trustee shall not result in a downgrading of the Regular Certificates by either Rating Agency, as evidenced by a letter from each Rating Agency. Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor Trustee as provided in this Section 8.08, the successor Trustee shall mail notice of the appointment of a successor Trustee hereunder to all Holders of Certificates at their addresses as shown in the Certificate Register and to each Rating Agency. SECTION 8.09 Merger or Consolidation of Trustee. Any entity into which the Trustee may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any entity resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Trustee shall be a party, or any entity succeeding to the business of the Trustee, shall be the successor of the Trustee hereunder, provided such entity shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 8.06 and 8.08, 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. SECTION 8.10 Appointment of Co-Trustee or Separate Trustee. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, at any time, for the purpose of meeting any legal requirements of any jurisdiction in which any part of the Trust or any Mortgaged Property may at the time be located, the Depositor and the Trustee acting jointly shall have the power and shall execute and deliver all instruments to appoint one or more Persons approved by the Trustee and the NIMS Insurer to act as co-trustee or co-trustees, jointly with the Trustee, or separate trustee or separate trustees, of all or any part of the Trust, and to vest in such Person or Persons, in such capacity and for the benefit of the Certificateholders, such title to the Trust, or any part thereof, and, subject to the other provisions of this Section 8.10, such powers, duties, obligations, rights and trusts as the Servicer and the Trustee may consider necessary or desirable. Any such co-trustee or separate trustee shall be subject to the written approval of the Servicer and the NIMS Insurer. If the Servicer and NIMS Insurer shall not have joined in such appointment within 15 days after the receipt by it of a request so to do, or in the case a Servicer Event of Termination shall have occurred and be continuing, the Trustee alone shall have the power to make such appointment. No co-trustee or separate trustee hereunder shall be required to meet the terms of eligibility as a successor trustee under Section 8.06, and no notice to Certificateholders of the appointment of any co-trustee or separate trustee shall be required under Section 8.08. The Servicer shall be responsible for the fees of any co-trustee or separate trustee appointed hereunder. Every separate trustee and co-trustee shall, to the extent permitted by law, be appointed and act subject to the following provisions and conditions: (i) all rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Trustee shall be conferred or imposed upon and exercised or performed by the Trustee and such separate trustee or co-trustee jointly (it being understood that such separate trustee or co-trustee is not authorized to act separately without the Trustee joining in such act), except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed (whether as Trustee hereunder or as successor to the Servicer hereunder), the Trustee shall be incompetent or unqualified to perform such act or acts, in which event such rights, powers, duties and obligations (including the holding of title to the Trust or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed singly by such separate trustee or co-trustee, but solely at the direction of the Trustee; (ii) no trustee hereunder shall be held personally liable by reason of any act or omission of any other trustee hereunder; and (iii) the Servicer and the Trustee, acting jointly, and with the consent of the NIMS Insurer, may at any time accept the resignation of or remove any separate trustee or co-trustee except that following the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Termination, the Trustee acting alone may accept the resignation or remove any separate trustee or co-trustee. Any notice, request or other writing given to the Trustee shall be deemed to have been given to each of the then separate trustees and co-trustees, as effectively as if given to each of them. Every instrument appointing any separate trustee or co-trustee shall refer to this Agreement and the conditions of this Article VIII. Each separate trustee and co-trustee, upon its acceptance of the trusts conferred, shall be vested with the estates or property specified in its instrument of appointment, either jointly with the Trustee or separately, as may be provided therein, subject to all the provisions of this Agreement, specifically including every provision of this Agreement relating to the conduct of, affecting the liability of, or affording protection to, the Trustee. Every such instrument shall be filed with the Trustee and a copy thereof given to the Depositor, the NIMS Insurer and the Servicer. Any separate trustee or co-trustee may, at any time, constitute the Trustee, its agent or attorney-in-fact, with full power and authority, to the extent not prohibited by law, to do any lawful act under or in respect of this Agreement on its behalf and in its name. If any separate trustee or co-trustee shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and trusts shall vest in and be exercised by the Trustee, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor Trustee. SECTION 8.11 Limitation of Liability. The Certificates are executed by the Trustee, not in its individual capacity but solely as Trustee of the Trust, in the exercise of the powers and authority conferred and vested in it by the Trust Agreement. Each of the undertakings and agreements made on the part of the Trustee in the Certificates is made and intended not as a personal undertaking or agreement by the Trustee but is made and intended for the purpose of binding only the Trust. SECTION 8.12 Trustee May Enforce Claims Without Possession of Certificates. (a) All rights of action and claims under this Agreement or the Certificates may be prosecuted and enforced by the Trustee without the possession of any of the Certificates or the production thereof in any proceeding relating thereto, and such proceeding instituted by the Trustee shall be brought in its own name or in its capacity as Trustee for the benefit of all Holders of such Certificates, subject to the provisions of this Agreement. Any recovery of judgment shall, after provision for the payment of the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursement and advances of the Trustee, its agents and counsel, be for the ratable benefit of the Certificateholders in respect of which such judgment has been recovered. (b) The Trustee shall afford the Sponsor, the Depositor, the Servicer, the NIMS Insurer and each Certificateholder upon reasonable prior notice during normal business hours, access to all records maintained by the Trustee in respect of its duties hereunder and access to officers of the Trustee responsible for performing such duties. Upon request, the Trustee shall furnish the Depositor, the Servicer, the NIMS Insurer and any requesting Certificateholder with its most recent financial statements. The Trustee shall cooperate fully with the Sponsor, the Servicer, the Depositor and such Certificateholder and shall make available to the Sponsor, the Servicer, the Depositor, the NIMS Insurer and such Certificateholder for review and copying such books, documents or records as may be requested with respect to the Trustee's duties hereunder.

ARTICLE X TERMINATION SECTION 10.01 Termination. (a) The respective obligations and responsibilities of the Servicer, the Depositor and the Trustee created hereby (other than the obligation of the Trustee to make certain payments to Certificateholders after the final Distribution Date and the obligation of the Servicer to send certain notices as hereinafter set forth) shall terminate upon notice to the Trustee upon the earliest of (i) the Distribution Date on which the Certificate Principal Balances of the Regular Certificates have been reduced to zero, (ii) the final payment or other liquidation of the last Mortgage Loan in the Trust, (iii) the optional purchase by the Terminator of the Mortgage Loans as described below and (iv) the Distribution Date in [________]. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the trust created hereby continue beyond the expiration of 21 years from the death of the last survivor of the descendants of Joseph P. Kennedy, the late ambassador of the United States to the Court of St. James's, living on the date hereof. The Servicer (in such context, the "Terminator"), may, at its option, terminate this Agreement on any date on which the aggregate of the Stated Principal Balances of the Mortgage Loans (after giving effect to scheduled payments of principal due during the related Due Period, to the extent received or advanced, and unscheduled collections of principal received during the related Prepayment Period) on such date is equal to or less than 10% of the sum of (i) the aggregate Stated Principal Balances of the Initial Mortgage Loans on the Cut-off Date and (ii) the Original Pre-Funded Amounts, by purchasing, on the next succeeding Distribution Date, all of the outstanding Mortgage Loans and REO Properties at a price equal to the greater of (i) the Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans (after giving effect to scheduled payments of principal due during the related Due Period, to the extent received or advanced, and unscheduled collections of principal received during the related Prepayment Period) and the appraised value of the REO Properties and (ii) fair market value of the Mortgage Loans and REO Properties (as determined and as agreed upon as of the close of business on the third Business Day next preceding the date upon which notice of any such termination is furnished to the related Certificateholders pursuant to Section 10.01(c) by (x) the Terminator, (y) the Holders of a majority in Percentage Interest in the Class C Certificates and (z) if the Adjustable Rate Certificates will not receive all amounts owed to it as a result of the termination, the Trustee, provided that if this clause (z) applies to such determination, notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, such determination shall be based solely upon an appraisal obtained as provided in the last sentence of this paragraph), plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon at the weighted average of the Mortgage Rates through the end of the Due Period preceding the final Distribution Date plus unreimbursed Servicing Advances, Advances, any unpaid Servicing Fees allocable to such Mortgage Loans and REO Properties and any accrued and unpaid Net WAC Rate Carryover Amounts and any Swap Termination payment payable to the Swap Provider (the "Termination Price"); provided, however, such option may only be exercised if the Termination Price is sufficient to result in the payment of all interest accrued on, as well as amounts necessary to retire the principal balance of, each class of notes issued pursuant to the Indenture and any amounts owned to the NIMS Insurer (as it notifies the Trustee and Servicer in writing). If the determination of the fair market value of the Mortgage Loans and REO Properties shall be required to be made and agreed upon by the Terminator, the Holders of a majority in Percentage Interest in the Class C Certificates and the Trustee as provided in (ii) above, such determination shall be based on an appraisal of the value of the Mortgage Loans and REO Properties conducted by an independent appraiser mutually agreed upon by the Terminator, the Holders of a majority in Percentage Interest in the Class C Certificates and the Trustee in their reasonable discretion, and (A) such appraisal shall be obtained at no expense to the Trustee and (B) notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, the Trustee may conclusively rely on, and shall be fully protected in relying on, such appraisal. In connection with any such purchase pursuant to the preceding paragraph, the Terminator shall deposit in the Distribution Account all amounts then on deposit in the Collection Account, which deposit shall be deemed to have occurred immediately preceding such purchase. Any such purchase shall be accomplished by deposit into the Distribution Account on the Determination Date before such Distribution Date of the Termination Price. (b) Notice of any termination, specifying the Distribution Date (which shall be a date that would otherwise be a Distribution Date) upon which the Certificateholders may surrender their Certificates to the Trustee for payment of the final distribution and cancellation, shall be given promptly by the Trustee upon the Trustee receiving notice of such date from the Terminator, by letter to the Certificateholders mailed not earlier than the 15th day and not later than the 25th day of the month next preceding the month of such final distribution specifying (1) the Distribution Date upon which final distribution of the Certificates will be made upon presentation and surrender of such Certificates at the office or agency of the Trustee therein designated, (2) the amount of any such final distribution and (3) that the Record Date otherwise applicable to such Distribution Date is not applicable, distributions being made only upon presentation and surrender of the Certificates at the office or agency of the Trustee therein specified. (c) Upon presentation and surrender of the Certificates, the Trustee shall cause to be distributed to the Holders of the Certificates on the Distribution Date for such final distribution, in proportion to the Percentage Interests of their respective Class and to the extent that funds are available for such purpose, an amount equal to the amount required to be distributed to such Holders in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.01 for such Distribution Date. By acceptance of the Residual Certificates, the Holders of the Residual Certificates agree, in connection with any termination hereunder, to assign and transfer any amounts in excess of the par value of the Mortgage Loans, and to the extent received in respect of such termination, to pay any such amounts to the Holders of the Class C Certificates. (d) In the event that all Certificateholders shall not surrender their Certificates for final payment and cancellation on or before such final Distribution Date, the Trustee shall promptly following such date cause all funds in the Distribution Account not distributed in final distribution to Certificateholders to be withdrawn therefrom and credited to the remaining Certificateholders by depositing such funds in a separate Servicing Account for the benefit of such Certificateholders, and the Servicer (if the Servicer has exercised its right to purchase the Mortgage Loans) or the Trustee (in any other case) shall give a second written notice to the remaining Certificateholders, to surrender their Certificates for cancellation and receive the final distribution with respect thereto. If within nine months after the second notice all the Certificates shall not have been surrendered for cancellation, the Residual Certificateholders shall be entitled to all unclaimed funds and other assets which remain subject hereto, and the Trustee upon transfer of such funds shall be discharged of any responsibility for such funds, and the Certificateholders shall look to the Residual Certificateholders for payment. SECTION 10.02 Additional Termination Requirements. (a) In the event that the Terminator exercises its purchase option as provided in Section 10.01, each REMIC shall be terminated in accordance with the following additional requirements, unless the Trustee shall have been furnished with an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that the failure of the Trust to comply with the requirements of this Section will not (i) result in the imposition of taxes on "prohibited transactions" of the Trust as defined in Section 860F of the Code or (ii) cause any REMIC constituting part of the Trust Fund to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any Certificates are outstanding: (i) Within 90 days prior to the final Distribution Date, the Terminator shall adopt and the Trustee shall sign a plan of complete liquidation of each REMIC created hereunder meeting the requirements of a "Qualified Liquidation" under Section 860F of the Code and any regulations thereunder; and (ii) At or after the time of adoption of such a plan of complete liquidation and at or prior to the final Distribution Date, the Trustee shall sell all of the assets of the Trust Fund to the Terminator for cash pursuant to the terms of the plan of complete liquidation. (b) By their acceptance of Certificates, the Holders thereof hereby agree to appoint the Trustee as their attorney in fact to: (i) adopt such a plan of complete liquidation (and the Certificateholders hereby appoint the Trustee as their attorney in fact to sign such plan) as appropriate and (ii) to take such other action in connection therewith as may be reasonably required to carry out such plan of complete liquidation all in accordance with the terms hereof.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither an Opinion of Counsel nor written notice to the Depositor, the Servicer and the Trustee from the Rating Agencies will be required in connection with an amendment to the provisions of Section 3.23(b). In addition, this Agreement may be amended from time to time by the Depositor, the Servicer and the Trustee with the consent of the NIMS Insurer and the Majority Certificateholders 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 Swap Provider or the Holders of Certificates; provided, however, that no such amendment or waiver shall (x) reduce in any manner the amount of, or delay the timing of, payments on the Certificates or distributions which are required to be made on any Certificate without the consent of the Holder of such Certificate, (y) adversely affect in any material respect the interests of the Swap Provider or the Holders of any Class of Certificates (as evidenced by either (i) an Opinion of Counsel delivered to the Trustee or (ii) written notice to the Depositor, the Servicer and the Trustee from each Rating Agency that such action will not result in the reduction or withdrawal of the rating of any outstanding Class of Certificates with respect to which it is a Rating Agency) in a manner other than as described in clause (x) above, without the consent of the Holders of Certificates of such Class evidencing at least a 66% Percentage Interest in such Class, or (z) reduce the percentage of Voting Rights required by clause (y) above without the consent of the Holders of all Certificates of such Class then outstanding.

Notwithstanding any of the other provisions of this Section 11.01, none of the Depositor, the Servicer or the Trustee shall enter into any amendment to Section 4.10 or Section 11.10 of this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Swap Provider.

It shall not be necessary for the consent of Certificateholders under this Section 11.01 to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment; instead 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 Certificateholders shall be subject to such reasonable regulations as the Trustee may prescribe.

The undersigned is an officer of, the proposed Transferee of an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate (the "Certificate") issued pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement dated as of November 1, 2005 (the "Agreement"), among Financial Asset Securities Corp., as depositor (the "Depositor"), National City Home Loan Services, Inc., as servicer (the "Servicer") and Deutsche Bank National Trust Company, as trustee (the "Trustee"). Capitalized terms used, but not defined herein or in Exhibit 1 hereto, shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Agreement. The Transferee has authorized the undersigned to make this affidavit on behalf of the Transferee for the benefit of the Depositor and the Trustee. 2. The Transferee is, as of the date hereof, and will be, as of the date of the Transfer, a Permitted Transferee. The Transferee is acquiring its Ownership Interest in the Certificate for its own account. The Transferee has no knowledge that any such affidavit is false. 3. The Transferee has been advised of, and understands that (i) a tax will be imposed on Transfers of the Certificate to Persons that are not Permitted Transferees; (ii) such tax will be imposed on the transferor, or, if such Transfer is through an agent (which includes a broker, nominee or middleman) for a Person that is not a Permitted Transferee, on the agent; and (iii) the Person otherwise liable for the tax shall be relieved of liability for the tax if the subsequent Transferee furnished to such Person an affidavit that such subsequent Transferee is a Permitted Transferee and, at the time of Transfer, such Person does not have actual knowledge that the affidavit is false. 4. The Transferee has been advised of, and understands that a tax will be imposed on a "pass-through entity" holding the Certificate if at any time during the taxable year of the pass-through entity a Person that is not a Permitted Transferee is the record holder of an interest in such entity. The Transferee understands that such tax will not be imposed for any period with respect to which the record holder furnishes to the pass-through entity an affidavit that such record holder is a Permitted Transferee and the pass-through entity does not have actual knowledge that such affidavit is false. (For this purpose, a "pass-through entity" includes a regulated investment company, a real estate investment trust or common trust fund, a partnership, trust or estate, and certain cooperatives and, except as may be provided in Treasury Regulations, persons holding interests in pass-through entities as a nominee for another Person.) 5. The Transferee has reviewed the provisions of Section 5.02(d) of the Agreement and understands the legal consequences of the acquisition of an Ownership Interest in the Certificate including, without limitation, the restrictions on subsequent Transfers and the provisions regarding voiding the Transfer and mandatory sales. The Transferee expressly agrees to be bound by and to abide by the provisions of Section 5.02(d) of the Agreement and the restrictions noted on the face of the Certificate. The Transferee understands and agrees that any breach of any of the representations included herein shall render the Transfer to the Transferee contemplated hereby null and void. 6. The Transferee agrees to require a Transfer Affidavit from any Person to whom the Transferee attempts to Transfer its Ownership Interest in the Certificate, and in connection with any Transfer by a Person for whom the Transferee is acting as nominee, trustee or agent, and the Transferee will not Transfer its Ownership Interest or cause any Ownership Interest to be Transferred to any Person that the Transferee knows is not a Permitted Transferee. In connection with any such Transfer by the Transferee, the Transferee agrees to deliver to the Trustee a certificate substantially in the form set forth as Exhibit L to the Agreement (a "Transferor Certificate") to the effect that such Transferee has no actual knowledge that the Person to which the Transfer is to be made is not a Permitted Transferee. 7. The Transferee has historically paid its debts as they have come due, intends to pay its debts as they come due in the future, and understands that the taxes payable with respect to the Certificate may exceed the cash flow with respect thereto in some or all periods and intends to pay such taxes as they become due. The Transferee does not have the intention to impede the assessment or collection of any tax legally required to be paid with respect to the Certificate. 8. The Transferee's taxpayer identification number is ___________. 9. The Transferee is a U.S. Person as defined in Code Section 7701(a)(30). 10. The Transferee is aware that the Certificate may be a "noneconomic residual interest" within the meaning of proposed Treasury regulations promulgated pursuant to the Code and that the transferor of a noneconomic residual interest will remain liable for any taxes due with respect to the income on such residual interest, unless no significant purpose of the transfer was to impede the assessment or collection of tax. 11. The Transferee will not cause income from the Certificate to be attributable to a foreign permanent establishment or fixed base, within the meaning of an applicable income tax treaty, of the Transferee or any other U.S. person. 12. Check one of the following: [_] The present value of the anticipated tax liabilities associated with holding the Certificate, as applicable, does not exceed the sum of: (i) the present value of any consideration given to the Transferee to acquire such Certificate; (ii) the present value of the expected future distributions on such Certificate; and (iii) the present value of the anticipated tax savings associated with holding such Certificate as the related REMIC generates losses. For purposes of this calculation, (i) the Transferee is assumed to pay tax at the highest rate currently specified in Section 11(b) of the Code (but the tax rate in Section 55(b)(1)(B) of the Code may be used in lieu of the highest rate specified in Section 11(b) of the Code if the Transferee has been subject to the alternative minimum tax under Section 55 of the Code in the preceding two years and will compute its taxable income in the current taxable year using the alternative minimum tax rate) and (ii) present values are computed using a discount rate equal to the short-term Federal rate prescribed by Section 1274(d) of the Code for the month of the transfer and the compounding period used by the Transferee. [_] The transfer of the Certificate complies with U.S. Treasury Regulations Sections 1.860E-1(c)(5) and (6) and, accordingly, (i) the Transferee is an "eligible corporation," as defined in U.S. Treasury Regulations Section 1.860E-1(c)(6)(i), as to which income from the Certificate will only be taxed in the United States; (ii) at the time of the transfer, and at the close of the Transferee's two fiscal years preceding the year of the transfer, the Transferee had gross assets for financial reporting purposes (excluding any obligation of a person related to the Transferee within the meaning of U.S. Treasury Regulations Section 1.860E-1(c)(6)(ii)) in excess of $100 million and net assets in excess of $10 million; (iii) the Transferee will transfer the Certificate only to another "eligible corporation," as defined in U.S. Treasury Regulations Section 1.860E-1(c)(6)(i), in a transaction that satisfies the requirements of Sections 1.860E-1(c)(4)(i), (ii) and (iii) and Section 1.860E-1(c)(5) of the U.S. Treasury Regulations; and (iv) the Transferee determined the consideration paid to it to acquire the Certificate based on reasonable market assumptions (including, but not limited to, borrowing and investment rates, prepayment and loss assumptions, expense and reinvestment assumptions, tax rates and other factors specific to the Transferee) that it has determined in good faith. [_] None of the above. 13. The Transferee is not an employee benefit plan that is subject to Title I of ERISA or a plan that is subject to Section 4975 of the Code or a plan subject to any Federal, state or local law that is substantially similar to Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code, and the Transferee is not acting on behalf of or investing plan assets of such a plan.
