(h)    Mortgagee may apply for and shall be entitled to the appointment of a receiver, trustee, liquidator or conservator of the Property, without notice and without regard for the adequacy of the security for the Secured Obligations and without regard for the solvency of any Mortgagor or Guarantor or any other guarantor or indemnitor under the Indenture or any other Person liable for the payment of the Secured Obligations.
(i)    The license granted to Mortgagor under Section 2.2 hereof shall automatically be revoked and, to the extent permitted by Applicable Laws, Mortgagee may enter into or upon the Property, either personally or by its agents, nominees or attorneys and dispossess Mortgagor and its agents and servants therefrom, without liability for trespass, damages or otherwise and exclude Mortgagor and its agents or servants wholly therefrom, and take possession of all books, records and accounts relating thereto and Mortgagor agrees to surrender possession of the Property and of such books, records and accounts to Mortgagee upon demand, and thereupon Mortgagee may (i) use, operate, manage, control, insure, maintain, repair, restore and otherwise deal with all and every part of the Property and conduct the business thereat; (ii) complete any construction on the Property in such manner and form as Mortgagee deems advisable; (iii) make alterations, additions, renewals, replacements and improvements to or on the Property; (iv) exercise all rights and powers of Mortgagor with respect to the Property, whether in the name of Mortgagor or otherwise, including, without limitation, the right to make, cancel, enforce or modify Leases, obtain and evict Tenants, and demand, sue for, collect and receive all Rents of the Property and every part thereof; (v) require Mortgagor to pay monthly in advance to Mortgagee, or any receiver appointed to collect the Rents, the fair and reasonable rental value for the use and occupation of such part of the Property as may be occupied by Mortgagor; (vi) require Mortgagor to vacate and surrender possession of the Property to Mortgagee or to such receiver and, in default thereof, Mortgagor may be evicted by summary proceedings or otherwise; and (vii) apply the receipts from the Property to the payment of the Secured Obligations, in such order, priority and proportions as Mortgagee shall deem appropriate in its sole discretion after deducting therefrom all reasonable expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with the aforesaid operations and all amounts necessary to pay the Taxes, Other Charges, insurance and other

expenses in connection with the Property, as well as just and reasonable compensation for the services of Mortgagee and Secured Parties, and their respective counsel, agents and employees.

Receipt of rents, issues and/or profits by Mortgagee shall not be deemed to constitute a pro-tanto payment of the indebtedness evidenced by, or arising under, this Security Instrument, the Indenture Notes, the Indenture or any of the other Note Documents, but shall be applied as provided in Section 9.2.
(j)    To the extent permitted by Applicable Laws, Mortgagee may exercise any and all rights and remedies granted to a secured party upon an uncured default under the Uniform Commercial Code, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing: (i) the right to take possession of the Collateral (including, without limitation, the Personal Property) or any part thereof, and to take such other measures as Mortgagee may deem necessary for the care, protection and preservation of the Collateral (including, without limitation, the Personal Property); and (ii) request Mortgagor at its expense to assemble the Collateral (including, without limitation, the Personal Property) and make it available to Mortgagee at a convenient place acceptable to Mortgagee. Any notice of sale, disposition or other intended action by Mortgagee with respect to the Collateral (including, without limitation, the Personal Property) sent to Mortgagor in accordance with the provisions hereof at least five (5) days prior to such action shall constitute commercially reasonable notice to Mortgagor.
(k)    Mortgagee may apply any sums then deposited or held in escrow or otherwise by or on behalf of Mortgagee in accordance with the terms of the Indenture, this Security Instrument or any other Note Document, to the payment of the following items in any order in its sole discretion: (i) Taxes and Other Charges; (ii) insurance premiums; (iii) interest on the unpaid principal balance of the Indenture Notes; (iv) amortization of the unpaid principal balance of the Indenture Notes; (v) all other sums payable pursuant to the Indenture Notes, the Indenture, this Security Instrument and the other Note Documents, including, without limitation, advances made by Mortgagee or any Secured Party pursuant to the terms of this Security Instrument.
(l)    Mortgagee may surrender the insurance policies maintained pursuant to the Indenture, collect the unearned insurance premiums for such insurance policies and apply such sums as a credit on the Secured Obligations in such priority and proportion as Mortgagee in its discretion shall deem proper, and in connection therewith, Mortgagor hereby appoints Mortgagee as its agent and attorney-in-fact (which is coupled with an interest and is therefore irrevocable) for Mortgagee to collect such insurance premiums.
(m)    Mortgagee may apply the undisbursed balance of any deposit made by Mortgagor with Mortgagee in connection with the restoration of the Property after a casualty thereto or condemnation thereof, together with interest thereon, to the payment of the Secured Obligations in such order, priority and proportions as Mortgagee shall deem to be appropriate in its discretion.

SECOND: To the Collateral Agent and Indenture Trustee for all amounts due under this Security Instrument;

-24-

 

THIRD: To the Noteholders (as such term is defined in the Indenture) for amounts then due and unpaid for principal, premium, if any, and interest on the Indenture Notes in respect of which or for the benefit of which such money has been collected ratably, without preference or priority of any kind, according to the amounts due and payable on such Indenture Notes for principal, premium, if any, and interest, respectively; and
FOURTH: To the Partnership or any of the obligors of the Indenture Notes, as their interests may appear, or as a court of competent jurisdiction may direct.
Section 9.3. RIGHT TO CURE DEFAULTS. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, Mortgagee may, but without any obligation to do so and without notice to or demand on Mortgagor and without releasing Mortgagor from any obligation hereunder, make any payment or do any act required of Mortgagor hereunder in such manner and to such extent as Secured Parties may deem necessary to protect the security hereof. Mortgagee is authorized to enter upon the Property for such purposes, or appear in, defend, or bring any action or proceeding to protect its interest in the Property or to foreclose this Security Instrument or collect the Secured Obligations, and the reasonable cost and expense thereof (including attorneys' fees to the extent permitted by Applicable Laws) with interest as provided in this Section 9.3, shall constitute a portion of the Secured Obligations and shall be due and payable to Mortgagee on behalf of Secured Parties upon demand. All such costs and expenses incurred by Mortgagee or any Secured Party remedying such Event of Default or such failed payment or act or in appearing in, defending, or bringing any such action or proceeding shall bear interest at the rate of interest specified in Section 2.14 of the Indenture, if any (the “Default Rate”), for the period after notice from Mortgagee or any Secured Party that such cost or expense was incurred to the date of payment to Mortgagee or such Secured Party. All such costs and expenses incurred by Mortgagee or any Secured Party together with interest thereon calculated at the Default Rate shall be deemed to constitute a portion of the Secured Obligations and be secured by this Security Instrument and the other Note Documents and shall be immediately due and payable upon demand by Mortgagee or such Secured Party therefor.
Section 9.4. ACTIONS AND PROCEEDINGS. Mortgagee has the right to appear in and defend any action or proceeding brought with respect to the Property and to bring any action or proceeding, in the name and on behalf of Mortgagor, which Mortgagee, in its discretion, decides should be brought to protect its interest in the Property.
Section 9.5. RECOVERY OF SUMS REQUIRED TO BE PAID. Mortgagee and Secured Parties shall have the right from time to time to take action to recover any sum or sums which constitute a part of the Secured Obligations as the same become due, without regard to whether or not the balance of the Secured Obligations shall be due, and without prejudice to the right of Mortgagee and Secured Parties thereafter to bring an action of foreclosure, or any other action, for a default or defaults by Mortgagor existing at the time such earlier action was commenced.
Section 9.6. ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS. With respect to the Collateral, from the Effective Date until the Secured Obligations are paid and performed in full or this Security Instrument is otherwise released by written instrument executed by Mortgagee and authorized to be recorded in the applicable public records of the jurisdiction in which the Property is located, Mortgagee is hereby irrevocably appointed the true and lawful attorney of the Mortgagor (coupled with an interest), in its name and stead, to make all necessary conveyances, assignments, transfers and deliveries of the Collateral, and for that purpose Mortgagee may execute all necessary instruments of conveyance, assignment, transfer and delivery, and may substitute one or more Persons with such power, Mortgagor hereby ratifying and confirming all that its said attorney or such substitute or substitutes shall lawfully do by virtue hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Mortgagor, if so requested by Mortgagee, shall ratify and confirm any such sale or sales by executing and delivering to Mortgagee or to such purchaser or purchasers all such instruments as may be advisable, in the judgment of Mortgagee, for such purpose, and as may be designated in such request. To the extent permitted by Applicable Laws, any such sale or sales made under or by virtue of this Section 9.6 shall operate to divest all the estate, right, title, interest, claim and demand whatsoever, whether at law, or in equity, of Mortgagor in and to the properties and rights so sold, and shall be a perpetual bar both at law and in equity against Mortgagor and against any and all Persons claiming or who may claim the same, or any part thereof, from, through or under Mortgagor. Upon any sale made under or by virtue of this Section 9.6, Mortgagee may, to the extent permitted by Applicable Laws, bid for and acquire the Property or any part thereof and in lieu of paying

-25-

 

cash therefor may make settlement for the purchase price by crediting upon the Secured Obligations secured hereby the net sales price after deducting therefrom the expenses of the sale and the cost of the auction and any other sums which Mortgagee is authorized to deduct by Applicable Laws or under this Security Instrument. At any sale pursuant to this Section 9.6, whether made under power herein granted, under or as otherwise authorized by Applicable Laws, or by virtue of any judicial proceeding or any other legal right, remedy or recourse, it shall not be necessary for Mortgagee to be physically present, or to have constructive possession of, the Property, and the title to and right of possession of any such property shall pass to the purchaser thereof as completely as if the same had been actually presented and delivered to the purchaser at such sale.
Section 9.7. OTHER RIGHTS, ETC.
(a)    The failure of Secured Parties or Mortgagee to insist upon strict performance of any term hereof shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any term of this Security Instrument or any other Note Document. Mortgagor shall not be relieved of Mortgagor's obligations hereunder by reason of (i) the failure of Secured Parties or Mortgagee to comply with any request of Mortgagor or any guarantor or indemnitor with respect to the Indenture to take any action to foreclose this Security Instrument or otherwise enforce any of the provisions hereof or of the Indenture Notes or the other Note Documents, (ii) the release, regardless of consideration, of less than the whole of the Property, or of any Person liable for the Secured Obligations or any portion thereof unless, in connection with such release, Mortgagee releases of record this Security Instrument in its entirety, or (iii) any written agreement or stipulation by Mortgagee or Secured Parties extending the time of payment or otherwise modifying or supplementing the terms of the Indenture Notes, this Security Instrument or the other Note Documents (except to the extent of any such modification).
(b)    It is agreed that the risk of loss or damage to the Property is on Mortgagor, and none of Mortgagee nor Secured Parties shall have any liability whatsoever for decline in the value of the Property, for failure to maintain the insurance policies required to be maintained pursuant to the Indenture or for failure to determine whether insurance in force is adequate as to the amount of risks insured. Possession by Mortgagee shall not be deemed an election of judicial relief if any such possession is requested or obtained with respect to any Property or collateral not in Mortgagee's possession.
(c)    Mortgagee or Secured Parties may resort for the payment of the Secured Obligations to any other security held by Mortgagee or Secured Parties in such order and manner as Mortgagee or Secured Parties, in their discretion, may elect. Mortgagee or Secured Parties may take action to recover the Secured Obligations, or any portion thereof, or to enforce any covenant hereof without prejudice to the right of Mortgagee or Secured Parties thereafter to foreclose this Security Instrument. The rights of Mortgagee and Secured Parties under this Security Instrument shall be separate, distinct and cumulative and none shall be given effect to the exclusion of the others. No act of Secured Parties or Mortgagee shall be construed as an election to proceed under any one provision herein to the exclusion of any other provision. None of Secured Parties or Mortgagee shall be limited exclusively to the rights and remedies herein stated but shall be entitled to every right and remedy now or hereafter afforded at law or in equity.
(d)    In the event of a foreclosure sale, whether made under the terms hereof, or under judgment of a court, the Collateral may, at the option of Mortgagee, be sold as a whole with the Land and Improvements.
Section 9.8. RIGHT TO RELEASE ANY PORTION OF THE PROPERTY. Subject to the provisions of the Indenture, Mortgagee may release any portion of the Property for such consideration as Mortgagee may require without, as to the remainder of the Property, in any way impairing or affecting the Lien or priority of this Security Instrument, or improving the position of any subordinate lien holder with respect thereto, except to the extent that the obligations hereunder shall have been reduced by the actual monetary consideration, if any, received by Mortgagee or any Secured Party for such release, and may accept by assignment, pledge or otherwise any other property in place thereof as Mortgagee may require without being accountable for so doing to any other lien holder. This Security Instrument shall continue as a Lien and security interest in the remaining portion of the Property.
Section 9.9. RIGHT OF ENTRY. Upon reasonable notice to Mortgagor, Mortgagee and its agents shall have the right to enter and inspect the Property at all reasonable times.

Section 9.10. BANKRUPTCY.
(a)    Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Mortgagee shall have the right to proceed in its own name or in the name of Secured Parties or in the name of Mortgagor in respect of any claim, suit, action or proceeding relating to the rejection of any Lease, including, without limitation, the right to file and prosecute, to the exclusion of Mortgagor, any proofs of claim, complaints, motions, applications, notices and other documents, in any case in respect of the lessee under such Lease under the Bankruptcy Code.
(b)    If there shall be filed by or against Mortgagor a petition under the Bankruptcy Code, as the same may be amended from time to time, and Mortgagor, as lessor under any Lease, shall determine to reject such Lease pursuant to Section 365(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, then Mortgagor shall give Mortgagee not less than ten (10) days' prior notice of the date on which Mortgagor shall apply to the bankruptcy court for authority to reject the Lease. Mortgagee shall have the right, but not the obligation, to serve upon Mortgagor within such ten-day period a notice stating that (i) Mortgagee demands that Mortgagor assume and assign the Lease to Mortgagee pursuant to Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code and (ii) Mortgagee covenants to cure or provide adequate assurance of future performance under the Lease. If Mortgagee serves upon Mortgagor the notice described in the preceding sentence, Mortgagor shall not seek to reject the Lease and shall comply with the demand provided for in clause (i) of the preceding sentence within thirty (30) days after the notice shall have been given, subject to the performance by Mortgagee of the covenant provided for in clause (ii) of the preceding sentence.
Section 9.11. SALE OF OPERATING LEASE. The word “sale” as used in this Article 9 with respect to the Operating Lease [or the Ground Lease, as applicable] shall mean the sale, transfer, assignment or conveyance for value of the leasehold interest of the Mortgagor in such Lease, together with all of the Mortgagor's right, title and interest in and to the other items comprising the Property.
Section 9.12. SUBROGATION. If any or all of the proceeds of the Indenture Notes have been used to extinguish, extend or renew any indebtedness heretofore existing against all or any portion of the Property, then, to the extent of the funds so used, Mortgagee and Secured Parties shall be subrogated to all of the rights, claims, Liens, titles, and interests existing against the Property heretofore held by, or in favor of, the holder of such indebtedness and such former rights, claims, Liens, titles, and interests, if any, are not waived but rather are continued in full force and effect in favor of Mortgagee and Secured Parties and are merged with the Lien and security interest created herein as cumulative security for the payment and performance of the Secured Obligations.

-28-

 

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAWS, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS SECURITY INSTRUMENT OR ANY OTHER NOTE DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY).

It is the intent of Mortgagee, Secured Parties and Mortgagor in the execution of the Indenture and the other Note Documents and any other written or oral agreement by Mortgagor in favor of Mortgagee and Secured Parties to contract in strict compliance with Applicable Laws with respect to usury. In furtherance thereof, Mortgagee, Secured Parties and Mortgagor stipulate and agree that none of the terms and provisions contained in the Indenture and the other Note Documents or in any other written or oral agreement by Mortgagor, the Companies or the Issuer in favor of Mortgagee and Secured Parties, shall ever be construed to create a contract to pay for the use, forbearance or detention of money, or interest at a rate in excess of the maximum interest rate permitted to be charged by Applicable Laws; that neither Mortgagor nor any guarantors, endorsers or other Persons now or hereafter becoming liable for payment of the Secured Obligations are agreeing to pay at a rate in excess of the maximum interest that may be lawfully charged under Applicable Laws; and that the provisions of this subsection shall control over all other provisions of the Indenture, the other Note Documents or any other oral or written agreements which may be in apparent conflict herewith.

In the event that Mortgagee and Secured Parties shall contract for, charge or receive any amount or amounts and/or any other thing of value which are determined to constitute interest which would increase the effective interest rate on the Indenture Notes or the Secured Obligations to a rate in excess of that permitted to be charged by Applicable Laws, an amount equal to interest in excess of the lawful rate shall, upon such determination, at the option of Mortgagee, be either immediately returned to Mortgagor or credited

-29-

 

against the Secured Obligations then outstanding, in which event any and all penalties of any kind under Applicable Laws as a result of such excess interest shall be inapplicable.

CROSS-COLLATERALIZATION
Section 12.1. CROSS-COLLATERALIZATION. Mortgagor acknowledges that the Secured Obligations are secured by this Security Instrument together with those certain other Deeds of Trust (as defined in the Indenture) now or hereafter given by Mortgagor or certain Affiliates of Mortgagor to Mortgagee or to certain trustees in trust and for the benefit of Mortgagee (whether one or more, collectively, the “Other Mortgages”) securing the Secured Obligations and encumbering the real and personal property more particularly described in the Other Mortgages (such real and personal property, collectively, the “Other Properties”), all as more particularly set forth in the Indenture. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Mortgagee shall have the right to institute (or, if applicable, with respect to Other Mortgages, direct the trustees appointed pursuant to such Other Mortgages) to institute a proceeding or proceedings for the total or partial foreclosure of this Security Instrument and any or all of the Other Mortgages whether by court action, power of sale or otherwise, under Applicable Laws, for all of the Secured Obligations and the Lien and the security interest created by the Other Mortgages shall continue in full force and effect without loss of priority as a Lien and security interest securing the payment of that portion of the Secured Obligations then due and payable but still outstanding. Mortgagor acknowledges and agrees that the Property and the Other Properties are located in one or more states and/or counties, and therefore Mortgagee shall be permitted to, or as the case may be, to direct certain named trustees to, enforce payment and performance of the Secured Obligations and the performance of any term, covenant or condition of the Indenture, this Security Instrument, the Other Mortgages or the other Note Documents and exercise any and all rights and remedies under the Indenture, this Security Instrument, the other Note Documents or the Other Mortgages or, as provided by law or at equity, by one or more proceedings, whether contemporaneous, consecutive or both, to be determined by Mortgagee, in its sole discretion, in any one or more of the states or counties in which the Property or any of the Other Properties are located. Neither the acceptance of this Security Instrument, the Other Mortgages or the other Note Documents nor the enforcement thereof in any one state or county, whether by court action, foreclosure, power of sale or otherwise, shall prejudice or in any way limit or preclude enforcement by court action, foreclosure, power of sale or otherwise, of the Indenture Notes, this Security Instrument, the Other Mortgages or the other Note Documents through one or more additional proceedings in that state or county or in any other state or county. Any and all sums received by Mortgagee or any Secured Party under the Indenture Notes, this Security Instrument, and the other Note Documents shall be applied to the Secured Obligations in such order and priority as Mortgagee shall determine, in its sole discretion, without regard to any portion of the Secured Obligations allocated to any Property or any of the Other Properties or the appraised value of the Property or any of the Other Properties.

Section 15.10. CONCERNING MORTGAGEE.
(a)    The Mortgagee has been appointed as Collateral Agent pursuant to the Indenture. The actions of the Mortgagee hereunder are subject to the provisions of the Indenture. The Mortgagee shall have the right hereunder to make demands, to give notices, to exercise or refrain from exercising any rights, and to take or refrain from taking action (including, without limitation, the release or substitution of the Property), in accordance with this Security Instrument and the Indenture. The Mortgagee may employ agents and attorneys-in-fact in connection herewith and shall not be liable for the negligence or misconduct of any such agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by it in good faith. The Mortgagee may resign and a successor Mortgagee may be appointed in the manner provided in the Indenture. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as the Mortgagee by a successor Mortgagee, that successor Mortgagee shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of, and assume, from and after the date of acceptance of any such appointment, the obligations of, the retiring Mortgagee under this Security Instrument, and the retiring Mortgagee shall thereupon be discharged from its duties and obligations under this Security Instrument. After any retiring Mortgagee's resignation, the provisions hereof shall bind and inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it under this Security Instrument while it was the Mortgagee.
(b)    The Mortgagee shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation

-32-

 

of the Property in its possession if such Property is accorded treatment substantially equivalent to that which the Mortgagee, in its individual capacity, accords its own property consisting of similar property, instruments or interests, it being understood that neither the Mortgagee nor any of the Secured Parties shall have responsibility for taking any necessary steps to preserve rights against any Person with respect to any Property.
(c)    The Mortgagee shall be entitled to rely upon any written notice, statement, certificate, order or other document or any telephone message believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person, and, with respect to all matters pertaining to this Security Instrument and its duties hereunder, upon advice of counsel selected by it.
(d)    With respect to any of its rights and obligations as a Secured Party, the Mortgagee shall have and may exercise the same rights and powers hereunder. The Mortgagee may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust or other business with the Mortgagor or any Affiliate of the Mortgagor to the same extent as if the Mortgagee were not acting as Collateral Agent.
Section 15.11. MORTGAGEE MAY PERFORM; MORTGAGEE APPOINTED ATTORNEY-IN-FACT. If the Mortgagor shall fail to perform any covenants contained in this Security Instrument (including, without limitation, the Mortgagor's covenants to (i) pay the premiums in respect of all required insurance policies hereunder or under the Indenture, (ii) pay Other Charges, (iii) make repairs, (iv) discharge Liens or (v) pay or perform any obligations of the Mortgagor under any Property) or if any warranty on the part of the Mortgagor contained herein shall be breached, the Mortgagee may (but shall not be obligated to), do the same or cause it to be done or remedy any such breach, and may expend funds for such purpose; provided, however, that the Mortgagee shall in no event be bound to inquire into the validity of any tax, Lien, imposition or other obligation which the Mortgagor fails to pay or perform as and when required hereby and which the Mortgagor does not contest in accordance with the provisions of the Indenture. Any and all amounts so expended by the Mortgagee shall be paid by the Mortgagor in accordance with the provisions of the Indenture and repayment shall be secured by this Security Instrument. Neither the provisions of this Section 15.11 nor any action taken by the Mortgagee pursuant to the provisions of this Section 15.11 shall prevent any such failure to observe any covenant contained in this Security Instrument nor any breach of warranty from constituting an Event of Default. The Mortgagor hereby appoints the Mortgagee as attorney-in-fact, with full power and authority in the place and stead of the Mortgagor and in the name of the Mortgagor, or otherwise, from time to time in the Mortgagee's discretion to take any action and to execute any instrument consistent with the terms hereof and the other Note Documents which the Mortgagee may deem necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes hereof (but the Mortgagee shall not be obligated to and shall have no liability to the Mortgagor or any third party for failure to so do or take action). The foregoing grant of authority is a power of attorney coupled with an interest and such appointment shall be irrevocable for the term hereof. The Mortgagor hereby ratifies all that such attorney shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue hereof.
Section 15.12. CONTINUING SECURITY INTEREST; ASSIGNMENT. This Security Instrument shall create a continuing Lien on and security interest in the Property and shall (i) be binding upon the Mortgagor, its successors and assigns and (ii) inure, together with the rights and remedies of the Mortgagee hereunder, to the benefit of the Mortgagee for the benefit of the Secured Parties and each of their respective successors, transferees and assigns. No other Persons (including, without limitation, any other creditor of any of the Companies, the Issuer or Mortgagor) shall have any interest herein or any right or benefit with respect hereto. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing clause (ii), any Secured Party may assign or otherwise transfer any indebtedness held by it secured by this Security Instrument to any other Person, and such other Person shall thereupon become vested with all the benefits in respect thereof granted to such Secured Party, herein or otherwise, subject, however, to the provisions of the Indenture and this Security Instrument. The Mortgagor agrees that its obligations hereunder and the security interest created hereunder shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as applicable, if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of all or any part of the Secured Obligations is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by the Secured Party upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of any of the Mortgagor, the Issuer or the Companies or otherwise.
Section 15.13. TERMINATION; RELEASE. In accordance with the terms of the Indenture and this Security Instrument, when all the Secured Obligations have been paid in full this Security Instrument shall terminate. Upon termination hereof or any release of the Property or any portion thereof in accordance with the

-33-

 

provisions of the Indenture and this Security Instrument, the Mortgagee shall, upon the request and at the sole cost and expense of the Mortgagor, forthwith assign, transfer and deliver to the Mortgagor, against receipt and without recourse to or warranty by the Mortgagee, such of the Property to be released (in the case of a release) as may be in possession of the Mortgagee and as shall not have been sold or otherwise applied pursuant to the terms hereof, and, with respect to any such Property, proper documents and instruments (including UCC-3 termination statements or releases) acknowledging the termination hereof or the release of such Property, as the case may be.
Section 15.14. RELATIONSHIP. The relationship of the Mortgagee to the Mortgagor hereunder is strictly and solely that of mortgagor and mortgagee and nothing contained in the Indenture, this Security Instrument, or any other document or instrument now existing and delivered in connection therewith or otherwise in connection with the Secured Obligations is intended to create, or shall in any event or under any circumstance be construed as creating a partnership, joint venture, tenancy‑in‑common, joint tenancy or other relationship of any nature whatsoever between the Mortgagee and the Mortgagor other than as mortgagor and mortgagee.
ARTICLE 16
THIRD PARTY GRANTOR PROVISIONS
Section 16.1. THIRD PARTY GRANTOR. Each Mortgagor agrees to the provisions of this Article 16 with respect to its interest in the Property encumbered by this Security Instrument and the obligations secured hereby to the extent the proceeds of the Secured Obligations have been paid to or for the benefit of a Person (the “Third Party Borrower”) other than such Mortgagor (including, without limitation, the Issuer and the Companies).
Section 16.2. AUTHORIZATIONS TO MORTGAGEE. Mortgagor authorizes Mortgagee, without notice or demand and without affecting their liability hereunder, from time to time to (i) renew, extend, accelerate or otherwise change the time for payment of, or otherwise change the terms of the Secured Obligations or any part thereof, including increase or decrease of the rate of interest thereon; (ii) take and hold other security for the payment of the Secured Obligations, and exchange, enforce, waive and release any such security; (iii) apply such security and direct the order or manner of sale thereof, including, without limitation, a non-judicial sale permitted by the terms of this Security Instrument or the Indenture as Mortgagee in its discretion may determine; and (iv) release or substitute any one or more of the endorsers or guarantors of any Secured Obligations.
Section 16.3. MORTGAGOR'S WARRANTIES. Mortgagor warrants that: (i) this Security Instrument is executed at the request of Third Party Borrower; and (ii) Mortgagor has adequate means of obtaining from Third Party Borrower on a continuing basis financial and other information pertaining to Third Party Borrower's financial condition without relying on Mortgagee therefor. Mortgagor agrees to keep adequately informed from such means of any facts, events or circumstances which Mortgagor considers material or which might in any way affect Mortgagor's risks hereunder. With respect to information or material acquired in the normal course of Mortgagee's relationship with Third Party Borrower, Mortgagor agrees that Mortgagee shall have no obligation to disclose such information or material to Mortgagor.
Section 16.4. MORTGAGOR'S WAIVERS.
(a)    Mortgagor waives any right to require Mortgagee to (A) proceed against any Person, including Third Party Borrower; (B) proceed against or exhaust any Collateral held from Third Party Borrower, any endorser or guarantor or any other person; (C) give notice of terms, time and place of any public or private sale of personal property or real property security held from Mortgagors; (D) pursue any other remedy in Mortgagee's power; or (E) make any presentments, demands for performance, or give any notices of nonperformance, protests, notices of protests or notices of dishonor in connection with any obligations or evidences of indebtedness held by Mortgagee as security, in connection with any obligations or evidences of indebtedness which constitute in whole or in part the indebtedness secured hereunder, or in connection with the creation of new or additional indebtedness. Mortgagor agrees that, in case of an Event of Default and foreclosure, Mortgagee may enforce this Security Instrument against any or all interests encumbered by this Security Instrument in a single proceeding.

-34-

 

(b)    Mortgagor waives any defense arising by reason of (A) any disability or other defense of Third Party Borrower, any endorser or guarantor or any other Person; (B) the cessation from any cause whatsoever, other than payment in full of the indebtedness of Third Party Borrower, of the liability of any endorser or guarantor or any other Person; (C) the application by Third Party Borrower of the proceeds of any indebtedness for purposes other than the purpose represented by Third Party Borrower to Mortgagee or intended or understood by Mortgagee or Mortgagor; (D) any act or omission by Mortgagee which directly or indirectly results in or aids the discharge of Third Party Borrower or of any indebtedness by operation of law or otherwise; (E) any modification to any secured indebtedness, and including, without limitation, the renewal, extension, acceleration or other change in time for payment of the indebtedness, or other change in the terms of the indebtedness or any part thereof, including an increase or decrease of the rate of interest thereon; and (F) all suretyship and guarantor's defenses generally.
(c)    Mortgagor shall have no right of subrogation, and Mortgagor further waives any right to enforce any remedy which Mortgagee now has or may hereafter have against Third Party Borrower, any endorser or guarantor or any other Person, and waives any benefit of, or any right to participate in, any security whatsoever now or hereafter held by Mortgagee from Third Party Borrower or any other Person.
Section 16.5. FURTHER EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS. Mortgagor waives all rights and defenses that the Mortgagor may have because the Third Party Borrower's debt is secured by real property. This means, among other things:
(a)    The Mortgagee may foreclose against the Mortgagor's interests without first foreclosing on any real or personal property collateral pledged by the Third Party Borrower;
(b)    If the Mortgagee forecloses on any real property collateral pledged by the Third Party Borrower: (A) the amount of the debt may be reduced only by the price for which that collateral is sold at the foreclosure sale, even if the collateral is worth more than the sale price; and (B) the Mortgagee may foreclose against the Mortgagor's interests even if the Mortgagee, by foreclosing on the Third Party Borrower's interests, has destroyed any right the Mortgagor may have to collect from the Third Party Borrower.
This is an unconditional and irrevocable waiver of any rights and defenses the Mortgagor may have because the Third Party Borrower's debt is secured by the Third Party Borrower's interest in real property.  
Section 16.6. MORTGAGOR'S UNDERSTANDINGS WITH RESPECT TO WAIVERS.
(a)    Mortgagor warrants and agrees that Mortgagor has had all necessary opportunity to secure any advice which Mortgagor desires with respect to each of the waivers set forth above, that such waivers are made with Mortgagor's full knowledge of their significance and consequences, and that under the circumstances, the waivers are reasonable and not contrary to public policy or law.
(b)    Notwithstanding the foregoing, all waivers in this Article 16 shall be effective only to the extent permitted by Applicable Laws.
