The proceeds from any sale of the Mortgaged Property shall, after deduction of all costs and expenses incurred by the Mortgagee in making such sale, be applied to the repayment of the Indebtedness and all other obligations, costs and expenses owing to the Mortgagee hereunder, under the Loan Documents or otherwise, whether or not then due, and/or may be held in whole or in part by the Mortgagee pending the expiry of any contingent liability undertaken by the Mortgagee for the Mortgagor's or the Debtor's account (“Contingent Obligations”). In the event that such sales proceeds are insufficient to cover all sums due or to become due to the Mortgagee, plus the Mortgagee's potential liability under the Contingent Obligations, the Mortgagor or the Debtor shall immediately pay to the Mortgagee the balance thereof.
