Section 5.       Administration of the Mortgage Loan.

(a)       Subject to this Agreement (including, without limitation, Section 5(g) below) and the Servicing Agreement, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Noteholder) shall have the sole and exclusive authority with respect to the administration of, and exercise of rights and remedies with respect to, the Mortgage Loan, including, without limitation, the sole authority to modify or waive any of the terms of the Mortgage Loan Documents or consent to any action or failure to act by the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any other party to the Mortgage Loan Documents, call or waive any Event of Default, accelerate the Mortgage Loan or institute any foreclosure action or other remedy and no other Noteholder shall have any voting, consent or other rights whatsoever with respect to the Lead Securitization Noteholder’s administration of, or exercise of its rights and remedies with respect to, the Mortgage Loan. Subject to this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement (including, without limitation, Section 5(g) below), each of the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders, the Note A-2 Holder and the Note B Holder agrees that it shall have no right to, and hereby presently and irrevocably assigns and conveys to the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Noteholder) the rights, if any, that the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders, the Note A-2 Holder and the Note B Holder have to, (i) call or cause the Lead Securitization Noteholder to call an Event of Default under the Mortgage Loan, or (ii) exercise any remedies with respect to the Mortgage Loan or the Mortgage Loan Borrower, including, without limitation, filing or causing the Lead Securitization Noteholder to file any bankruptcy petition against the Mortgage Loan Borrower.

 35

Upon the Mortgage Loan becoming a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan and the determination by the Special Servicer to sell the Lead Securitization Note in accordance with the Servicing Agreement, subject to the rights of the Note B Holder pursuant to Section 12 hereof, each Noteholder hereby acknowledges the right and obligation of the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Special Servicer acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Noteholder) to sell the Non-Lead Securitization Notes and Note B together with the Lead Securitization Note as notes evidencing one whole loan in accordance with the terms of the Servicing Agreement.

In connection with any such sale, the Special Servicer shall sell the applicable Notes in the manner set forth in the Servicing Agreement and shall require that all offers be submitted to the Trustee or Special Servicer, as applicable, in accordance with the terms of the Servicing Agreement. Whether any cash offer constitutes a fair price for the applicable Notes shall be determined by the Trustee or Special Servicer, as applicable, in accordance with the terms of the Servicing Agreement. The Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Special Servicer acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Noteholder) shall not be permitted to sell the Mortgage Loan if it becomes a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan without the written consent of each Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder (provided that such consent is not required if any Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder is the Mortgage Loan Borrower or an affiliate of the Mortgage Loan Borrower) unless the Special Servicer has delivered to the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders: (a) at least fifteen (15) Business Days’ prior written notice of any decision to attempt to sell the Mortgage Loan; (b) at least ten (10) days prior to the proposed sale date, a copy of each bid package (together with any material amendments to such bid packages) received by the Special Servicer in connection with any such proposed sale, (c) at least ten (10) days prior to the proposed sale date, a copy of the most recent Appraisal for the Mortgage Loan, and any documents in the Mortgage File reasonably requested by any Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder that are material to the sale price of the Mortgage Loan and (d) until the sale is completed and a reasonable period of time (but no less time than is afforded to other offerors and the Controlling Class Representative (as such term is defined in the Servicing Agreement)) prior to the proposed sale date, all information and other documents being provided to other offerors and all leases or other documents that are approved by any Servicer in connection with the proposed sale; provided, however, that any such Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder may waive any of the delivery or timing requirements set forth in this sentence as to itself. Subject to the foregoing, any Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder, any Non-Lead Securitization Controlling Class Representative and any B Noteholder shall be permitted to submit an offer at any sale of the Mortgage Loan unless such Person is the Mortgage Loan Borrower or an agent or Affiliate of the Mortgage Loan Borrower.

Each Noteholder hereby irrevocably appoints the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer and the Trustee in the Lead Securitization as such Noteholder’s attorney-in-fact to sign any documents reasonably required with respect to the administration and servicing of the

 36 

 

Mortgage Loan on its behalf under the Servicing Agreement (subject at all times to the rights of the Noteholder set forth herein and in the Servicing Agreement).

Each Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder, the Note A-2 Holder and the Note B Holder each hereby appoints the Lead Securitization Noteholder as its agent, and grants to the Lead Securitization Noteholder an irrevocable power of attorney coupled with an interest, and its proxy, for the purpose of soliciting and accepting offers for and consummating the sale of the Non-Lead Securitization Notes, Note A-2 and Note B. Each Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder, the Note A-2 Holder and the Note B Holder each further agrees that, upon the request of the Lead Securitization Noteholder, it shall execute and deliver to or at the direction of Lead Securitization Noteholder such powers of attorney or other instruments as the Lead Securitization Noteholder may reasonably request to better assure and evidence the foregoing appointment and grant, in each case promptly following request, and shall deliver the related original of its Note, endorsed in blank, to or at the direction of the Lead Securitization Noteholder in connection with the consummation of any such sale.

(b)  The Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative) shall have, with respect to the Mortgage Loan, all of the same rights and powers the Controlling Class Representative has under the Servicing Agreement with respect to the Mortgage Loan, including without limitation, the right to consent and/or consult regarding Major Decisions and other servicing matters, the right to advise (1) the Special Servicer with respect to the Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan and (2) the Special Servicer with respect to non-Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan as to all matters for which the Master Servicer must obtain the consent or deemed consent of the Special Servicer, and the right to direct the Special Servicer to take, or to refrain from taking, such other actions with respect to the Mortgage Loan as the Controlling Class Representative may deem advisable or as to which provision is otherwise made therein, in each case subject to the terms and conditions of the Servicing Agreement.

(c)The administration of the Mortgage Loan shall be governed by this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement. Each Noteholder agrees to be bound by the terms of the Servicing Agreement. The Servicer shall service the Mortgage Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, including without limitation the rights of the Note B Holder set forth in Section 5(g) below. Servicing of the Mortgage Loan shall be carried out by the Master Servicer and, if the Mortgage Loan is a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan, by the Special Servicer, in each case pursuant to the Servicing Agreement and this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in accordance with the Servicing Agreement, the Lead Securitization Noteholder shall cause the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer to service and administer the Mortgage Loan in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, taking into account the interests of the Note A-1 Holders, the Note A-2 Holder and the Note B Holder (it being understood that the interests of each of the Note A-2 Holder and the Note B Holder is a junior Note interest, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement), and any Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder or the Note B Holder who is not the Mortgage Loan Borrower or a Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party shall be deemed a third party beneficiary of such provisions of the Servicing Agreement. The foregoing provisions of this Section 5(c) shall not limit or modify the rights of the Controlling Noteholder and/or the Controlling Noteholder Representative to exercise their respective rights specifically set forth under this Agreement.

(d)  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, but subject to the terms and conditions of the Servicing Agreement and this Agreement (including, without limitation, Section 6), if the Servicer (on behalf of the Noteholders) in connection with a Workout of the Mortgage Loan modifies the terms thereof such that (i) the unpaid principal balance of the Mortgage Loan is decreased, (ii) the Mortgage Loan Rate or scheduled amortization payments on such Mortgage Loan are reduced, (iii) payments of interest or principal on such Mortgage Loan are waived, reduced or deferred or (iv) any other adjustment (other than an increase in the Mortgage Loan Rate or increase in scheduled amortization payments) is made to any of the terms of the Mortgage Loan, all payments to the Note A-1 Holders pursuant to Section 3 and Section 4, as applicable, shall be made as though such Workout did not occur, with the payment terms of each Note A-1 remaining the same as they are on the date hereof, and the full economic effect of all waivers, reductions or deferrals of amounts due on the Mortgage Loan attributable to such Workout shall be borne, first, by the Note B Holder (up to its Principal Balance, together with accrued interest thereon at the applicable Note Rate and any other amounts due to the Note B Holder), second, by the Note A-2 Holder (up to its Principal Balance, together with accrued interest thereon at the applicable Note Rate and any other amounts due to the Note A-2 Holder), and then, by the Note A-1 Holders, on a Pro Rata and Pari Passu Basis (up to their respective Principal Balances, together with accrued interest thereon at the applicable Note Rate and any other amounts due to each Note A-1 Holder, as applicable). Any recoveries in connection with a workout of the Mortgage Loan will be allocated first, to the Note A-1 Holders, on a Pro Rata and Pari Passu Basis, based on their respective Principal Balances (up to their respective Principal Balances, together with accrued interest thereon at the applicable Note Rate and any other amounts due to each Note A-1 Holder, as applicable), second, to the Note A-2 Holder (up to its Principal Balance, together with accrued interest thereon at the applicable Note Rate and any other amounts due to the Note A-2 Holder), and then, to the Note B Holder (up to its Principal Balance, together with accrued interest thereon at the applicable Note Rate and any other amounts due to the Note B Holder). Subject to the Servicing Agreement and this Agreement (including without limitation Section 6), in the case of any modification or amendment described above, the Servicer (on behalf of the Noteholders) shall have the sole authority and ability to revise the payment provisions set forth in Section 3 and Section 4 above in a manner that reflects the subordination of Note B to each Note A-1 and Note A-2, and the subordination of Note A-2 to each Note A-1, with respect to the loss that is the result of such amendment or modification, including: (i) the ability to increase the aggregate Percentage Interests of each Note A-1 and to reduce the Percentage Interests of Note A-2 and Note B in a manner that reflects a loss in principal as a result of such amendment or modification and (ii) the ability to change the Note Rate with respect to any Note, in order to reflect a reduction in the Mortgage Loan Rate of the Mortgage Loan but shall not be permitted to change the order of the clauses set forth in Section 3 and Section 4 hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Workout, modification or amendment of the Mortgage Loan extends the original maturity date of the Mortgage Loan, for purposes of this paragraph, the Balloon Payment shall be deemed not to be due on the original maturity date of the Mortgage Loan but shall be deemed due on the extended maturity date of the Mortgage Loan.

(e)All rights and obligations of the Lead Securitization Noteholder described hereunder may be exercised by the Servicer on behalf of the Lead Securitization Noteholder in accordance with the Servicing Agreement and this Agreement.

 38 

 

(f)If any Note is included as an asset of a REMIC, then, any provision of this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding: (i) the Mortgage Loan shall be administered such that the Notes shall each qualify at all times as (or as interests in) a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code, (ii) any real property (and related personal property) acquired by or on behalf of the Noteholders pursuant to a foreclosure, exercise of a power of sale or delivery of a deed in lieu of foreclosure of the Mortgage or lien on such property following a default on the Mortgage Loan shall be administered so that the interests of the Noteholders therein shall at all times qualify as “foreclosure property” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code and (iii) the Lead Securitization Noteholder may not modify, waive or amend any provision of the Mortgage Loan, consent to or withhold consent from any action of the Mortgage Loan Borrower, or exercise or refrain from exercising any powers or rights which the Lead Securitization Noteholder may have under the Mortgage Loan Documents, if any such action would constitute a “significant modification” of the Mortgage Loan, within the meaning of Section 1.860G 2(b) of the regulations of the United States Department of the Treasury, more than three months after the earliest startup day of any REMIC which includes any of the Notes (or any portion thereof). The Noteholders agree that the provisions of this Section 5(f) shall be effected by compliance by the Lead Securitization Noteholder or its assignees with this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement or any other agreement which governs the administration of the Mortgage Loan or the Lead Securitization Noteholder’s interests therein. All costs and expenses of compliance with this Section 5(f), to the extent that such costs and expenses relate to administration of a REMIC or to any determination respecting the amount, payment or avoidance of any tax under the REMIC Provisions or the actual payment of any REMIC tax or expense, shall be borne solely by each Senior Note on a pro rata and pari passu basis.

A Noteholder shall not be required to reimburse any other Noteholder or any other Person for the payment of the following items related to any REMIC that does not include such Noteholder’s Note: (i) any taxes imposed on such REMIC, (ii) any costs or expenses relating to the administration of such REMIC or to any determination respecting the amount, payment or avoidance of any tax under such REMIC or (iii) any advances for any of the foregoing or any interest thereon or for deficits in other items of disbursement or income resulting from the use of funds for payment of any such taxes, costs or expenses or advances, nor shall any disbursement or payment otherwise distributable to the other Noteholders be reduced to offset or make-up any such payment or deficit.

(g)If any consent, modification, amendment or waiver under or other action in respect of the Mortgage Loan (whether or not a Special Servicing Loan Event has occurred and is continuing) that would constitute a Major Decision has been requested or proposed, prior to the occurrence of a Control Termination Event (as defined in the Servicing Agreement), the Special Servicer may not take any action constituting a Major Decision (or consent to the taking of any such action by the Servicer) without providing at least ten (10) Business Days’ prior notice of such action to the Directing Holder in accordance with the terms of the Servicing Agreement and obtaining the consent of the Directing Holder (or its deemed consent, in the event the Directing Holder has not objected to such action within such ten (10) Business Day period) in accordance with the terms of the Servicing Agreement.

 39 

 

If the Servicer has not received a response from the Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative) with respect to such Major Decision within five (5) Business Days after delivery of the notice of a Major Decision, the Servicer shall deliver an additional copy of the notice of a Major Decision in all caps bold 14-point font: “This is a Second Notice. Failure to respond within five (5) Business Days of this Second Notice will result in a loss of your right to consent with respect to this decision.” and if the Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative) fails to respond to the Servicer with respect to any such proposed action within five (5) Business Days after receipt of such second notice, the Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative), as applicable, shall have no further consent rights with respect to such action.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Servicer or the Special Servicer, as applicable, in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, determines that immediate action is necessary to protect the Mortgaged Property or the interests of the Noteholders (as a collective whole) with respect to any Major Decision, the Servicer or the Special Servicer, as applicable, may take such action notwithstanding the time periods set forth above, if the Servicer or the Special Servicer, as applicable, has first made a reasonable effort to contact the Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer shall not follow any advice or consultation provided by the Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative) that would require or cause the Servicer to violate any applicable law, including the REMIC Provisions, be inconsistent with Accepted Servicing Practices, require or cause the Servicer to violate provisions of this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement, require or cause the Servicer to violate the terms of the Mortgage Loan, or materially expand the scope of any Servicer’s responsibilities under this Agreement.

(h)  Notwithstanding the foregoing, during the continuation of a Control Appraisal Period, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer acting on its behalf) shall be required:

(i)  to provide copies of any notice, information and report that it is required to provide to the Controlling Class Representative pursuant to the Servicing Agreement with respect to any Major Decisions or the implementation of any recommended actions outlined in an Asset Status Report relating to the Mortgage Loan, to each Non-Controlling Noteholder (or its controlling class representative), within the same time frame it is required to provide to the Controlling Class Representative (for this purpose, without regard to whether such items are actually required to be provided to the Controlling Class Representative under the Servicing Agreement due to the occurrence of a Control Termination Event (as defined in the Servicing Agreement) or a Consultation Termination Event (as defined in the Servicing Agreement)); and

(ii)  to consult with each Non-Controlling Noteholder (or its controlling class representative) on a strictly non-binding basis, to the extent having received such notices, information and reports, such Non-Controlling Noteholder (or its controlling class representative) requests consultation with respect to any such Major Decisions or the implementation of any recommended actions outlined in an Asset Status Report

 40 

 

relating to the Mortgage Loan, and consider alternative actions recommended by such Non-Controlling Noteholder (or its controlling class representative); provided that after the expiration of a period of ten (10) Business Days from the delivery to the Non-Controlling Noteholders (or their respective controlling class representatives) by the Lead Securitization Noteholder of written notice of a proposed action, together with copies of the notice, information and report required to be provided to the Controlling Class Representative, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer acting on its behalf) shall no longer be obligated to consult with the Non-Controlling Noteholders (or their respective controlling class representatives), whether or not the Non-Controlling Noteholders (or their respective controlling class representatives) have responded within such ten (10) Business Day period (unless, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer acting on its behalf) proposes a new course of action that is materially different from the action previously proposed, in which case such ten (10) Business Day period shall be deemed to begin anew from the date of such proposal and delivery of all information relating thereto).

Notwithstanding the consultation rights of the Non-Controlling Noteholders (or their respective controlling class representatives) set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or Servicer acting on its behalf) may make any Major Decision or take any action set forth in the Asset Status Report before the expiration of the aforementioned ten (10) Business Day period if the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or Servicer acting on its behalf) determines that immediate action with respect thereto is necessary to protect the interests of the Noteholders. In no event shall the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or Servicer acting on its behalf) be obligated at any time to follow or take any alternative actions recommended by a Non-Controlling Noteholder (or its controlling class representative).

In addition to the consultation rights of the Non-Controlling Noteholders (or their respective controlling class representatives) during the continuation of a Control Appraisal Period, as provided in the immediately preceding paragraph, the Non-Controlling Noteholders shall have the right to attend annual meetings (either telephonically or in person, in the discretion of the Servicer) with the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer acting on its behalf) at the offices of the Servicer, as applicable, upon reasonable notice and at times reasonably acceptable to the Servicer, as applicable, in which servicing issues related to the Mortgage Loan are discussed.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Non-Controlling Noteholder that is the Mortgage Loan Borrower or an Affiliate of the Mortgage Loan Borrower shall not have or be entitled to exercise any information or consultation rights granted to a Non-Controlling Noteholder hereunder.

(i)The Note B Holder in its capacity as Controlling Noteholder shall be entitled to avoid a Control Appraisal Period caused by application of an Appraisal Reduction Amount upon satisfaction of the following (which must be completed within thirty (30) days of the receipt of a third party Appraisal that indicates such Control Appraisal Period has occurred): (i) such Controlling Noteholder shall have delivered as a supplement to the appraised value of the Mortgaged Property, in the amount specified in clause (ii) below, to the Servicer, together with documentation acceptable to the Servicer in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices to

 41 

 

create and perfect a first priority security interest in favor of the Servicer on behalf of the Lead Securitization Noteholder in such collateral (a) cash collateral for the benefit of, and acceptable to, the Servicer or (b) an unconditional and irrevocable standby letter of credit with the Servicer as the beneficiary, issued by a bank or other financial institutions the long term unsecured debt obligations of which are at all times rated at least “AA” by S&P, “A” by Fitch and “Aa2” by Moody’s or the short term obligations of which are rated at least “A-1+” by S&P, “F-1” by Fitch and “P-1” by Moody’s (either (a) or (b), the “Threshold Event Collateral”), and (ii) the Threshold Event Collateral shall be in an amount which, when added to the appraised value of the Mortgaged Property as determined pursuant to the Servicing Agreement, would cause the applicable Control Appraisal Period not to occur. If the requirements of this paragraph are satisfied by the Note B Holder in its capacity as Controlling Noteholder (a “Threshold Event Cure”), no Control Appraisal Period caused by application of an Appraisal Reduction Amount shall be deemed to have occurred. If a letter of credit is furnished as Threshold Event Collateral, the applicable Controlling Noteholder shall be required to renew such letter of credit not later than thirty (30) days prior to expiration thereof or to replace such letter of credit with a substitute letter of credit or other Threshold Event Collateral with an expiration date that is greater than forty-five (45) days from the date of substitution; provided, however, that, if a letter of credit is not renewed prior to thirty (30) days prior to the expiration date of such letter of credit, the letter of credit shall provide that the Servicer may (and at the direction of the applicable Controlling Noteholder, shall) draw upon such letter of credit and hold the proceeds thereof as Threshold Event Collateral. If a letter of credit is furnished as Threshold Event Collateral, the Note B Holder as Controlling Noteholder shall be required to replace such letter of credit with other Threshold Event Collateral within thirty (30) days if the credit ratings of the issuing entity are downgraded below the required ratings; provided, however, that, if such Threshold Collateral is not so replaced, the Servicer shall draw upon such letter of credit and hold the proceeds thereof as Threshold Event Collateral. The Threshold Event Cure shall continue until (i) the appraised value of the Mortgaged Property plus the value of the Threshold Event Collateral would not be sufficient to prevent a Control Appraisal Period from occurring; or (ii) final liquidation of the Mortgage Loan or Foreclosed Property. If the appraised value of the Mortgaged Property, upon any redetermination thereof, is sufficient to avoid the occurrence of a Control Appraisal Period without taking into consideration any, or some portion of, Threshold Event Collateral previously delivered by the Note B Holder as Controlling Noteholder, any or such portion of Threshold Event Collateral held by the Servicer shall promptly be returned to such Controlling Noteholder (at its sole expense). Upon final liquidation or repayment of the Mortgage Loan or Foreclosed Property with respect to the Mortgage Loan, such Threshold Event Collateral shall be available to reimburse each Noteholder for any realized loss pursuant to Section 3 or Section 4, as applicable, with respect to the Mortgage Loan after application of the net proceeds of liquidation, not in excess of the Principal Balances of the Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon at the applicable interest rate and all other Additional Servicing Expenses reimbursable under this Agreement and under the Servicing Agreement. Any Threshold Event Collateral shall be treated as an “outside reserve fund” for purposes of the REMIC Provisions and such property (and the right to reimbursement of any amounts with respect thereto from a REMIC) shall be beneficially owned by the posting Noteholder who shall be taxed on all income with respect thereto. The entire amount of Threshold Event Collateral, without a haircut or other reduction, shall be considered in determining the sufficiency of such Threshold Event Collateral to avoid a Control Appraisal Period.

 42 

 

(j)       The Servicer or Special Servicer shall obtain Appraisals that meet the requirements of, and at the times required pursuant to, the terms of the Servicing Agreement.

(k)      Following Securitization of a Non-Lead Securitization Note, all notices, reports, information or other deliverables required to be delivered to the related Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder or the related Non-Controlling Noteholder pursuant to this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement by the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer acting on its behalf) shall be delivered to the related Non-Lead Master Servicer and the Non-Lead Special Servicer (who then may forward such items to the party entitled to receive such items as and to the extent provided in the related Non-Lead Servicing Agreement) and, when so delivered to such Non-Lead Master Servicer and Non-Lead Special Servicer, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer acting on its behalf) shall be deemed to have satisfied its delivery obligations with respect to such items hereunder or under the Servicing Agreement.

Section 6.       Appointment of Controlling Noteholder Representative.

(a)The Controlling Noteholder shall have the right at any time to appoint a representative in connection with the exercise of its rights and obligations with respect to the Mortgage Loan (the “Controlling Noteholder Representative”). The Controlling Noteholder shall have the right in its sole discretion at any time and from time to time to remove and replace the Controlling Noteholder Representative. When exercising its various rights under Section 5 and elsewhere in this Agreement, the Controlling Noteholder may, at its option, in each case, act through the Controlling Noteholder Representative. The Controlling Noteholder Representative may be any Person (other than the Mortgage Loan Borrower, its principal or any Affiliate of the Mortgage Loan Borrower), including, without limitation, the Controlling Noteholder, any officer or employee of the Controlling Noteholder, any Affiliate of the Controlling Noteholder or any other unrelated third party. No such Controlling Noteholder Representative shall owe any fiduciary duty or other duty to any other Person (other than the Controlling Noteholder). All actions that are permitted to be taken by the Controlling Noteholder under this Agreement may be taken by the Controlling Noteholder Representative acting on behalf of the Controlling Noteholder. No Servicer, Operating Advisor, Asset Representations Reviewer, Trustee or Certificate Administrator acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Noteholder shall be required to recognize any Person as an Controlling Noteholder Representative until the Controlling Noteholder has notified each Servicer, Operating Advisor, Asset Representations Reviewer, Trustee and Certificate Administrator of such appointment and, if the Controlling Noteholder Representative is not the same Person as the Controlling Noteholder, the Controlling Noteholder Representative provides each Servicer, Operating Advisor, Asset Representations Reviewer, Trustee and Certificate Administrator with written confirmation of its acceptance of such appointment, an address and facsimile number for the delivery of notices and other correspondence and a list of officers or employees of such person with whom the parties to this Agreement may deal (including their names, titles, work addresses and facsimile numbers). The Controlling Noteholder shall promptly deliver such information to each Servicer, Operating Advisor, Asset Representations Reviewer, Trustee and Certificate Administrator. If the Lead Securitization Noteholder is the Controlling Noteholder, no Controlling Noteholder Representative shall be appointed and the rights of the Lead Securitization Noteholder exercisable by the Controlling Class Representative shall be as set forth in the Servicing

 43 

 

Agreement. Similarly, if the Lead Securitization Noteholder is the Controlling Noteholder, the rights of each Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder shall be exercisable by a controlling class representative or directing holder as set forth in the related Non-Lead Servicing Agreement.

(b)  Neither the Controlling Noteholder Representative nor the Controlling Noteholder shall have any liability to the other Noteholders or any other Person for any action taken, or for refraining from the taking of any action or the giving of any consent or the failure to give any consent pursuant to this Agreement or the Servicing Agreement, or errors in judgment, absent any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of its willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence. The Noteholders agree that the Controlling Noteholder Representative and the Controlling Noteholder (whether acting in place of the Controlling Noteholder Representative when no Controlling Noteholder Representative shall have been appointed hereunder or otherwise exercising any right, power or privilege granted to the Controlling Noteholder hereunder) may take or refrain from taking actions, or give or refrain from giving consents, that favor the interests of one Noteholder over the other Noteholder, and that the Controlling Noteholder Representative may have special relationships and interests that conflict with the interests of a Noteholder and, absent willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence on the part of the Controlling Noteholder Representative or the Controlling Noteholder, as the case may be, agree to take no action against the Controlling Noteholder Representative, the Controlling Noteholder or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, principals or agents as a result of such special relationships or interests, and that neither the Controlling Noteholder Representative nor the Controlling Noteholder will be deemed to have been grossly negligent or reckless, or to have acted in bad faith or engaged in willful misfeasance or to have recklessly disregarded any exercise of its rights by reason of its having acted or refrained from acting, or having given any consent or having failed to give any consent, solely in the interests of any Noteholder.

(c)  If the Lead Securitization Noteholder is the Controlling Noteholder, the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders and the Note B Holder acknowledge and agree (i) all of the aforementioned rights and obligations of the Controlling Noteholder and the Controlling Noteholder Representative set forth in Section 5(g) and 5(h) and this Section 6 shall be exercisable by the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the applicable Person specified in the Servicing Agreement) to the extent set forth in the Servicing Agreement and (ii) the Controlling Class Representative may exercise all rights with respect to the Mortgage Loan and any decisions or consents or other powers with respect thereto as are set forth in the Servicing Agreement.

    (d)  With respect to any Non-Controlling Note, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer acting on its behalf) shall not be required at any time to deal with more than one party exercising the rights of any particular “Non-Controlling Noteholder” herein or under the Servicing Agreement and, (x) to the extent that the related Non-Lead Servicing Agreement assigns such rights to more than one party, or (y) to the extent a Non-Controlling Note is split into two or more New Notes pursuant to Section 40, for purposes of this Agreement, the Non-Lead Servicing Agreement or the holders of such New Notes shall designate one party to deal with the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer acting on its behalf) and provide written notice of such designation to the Lead Securitization Noteholder (and the Master Servicer and the Special

 44 

 

Servicer acting on its behalf); provided that, in the absence of such designation and notice, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer acting on its behalf) shall be entitled to treat the last party as to which it has received written notice as having been designated as the Non-Controlling Noteholder with respect to such Non-Controlling Note, as the Non-Controlling Noteholder for such Non-Controlling Note for all purposes of this Agreement. As of the date hereof and until further notice from a Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Non-Lead Master Servicer or another party acting on its behalf), the Note A-1A Holder is the Non-Controlling Noteholder with respect to Note A-1A, the Note A-1B Holder is the Non-Controlling Noteholder with respect to Note A-1B, the Note A-1C Holder is the Non-Controlling Noteholder with respect to Note A-1C, the Note A-1D Holder is the Non-Controlling Noteholder with respect to Note A-1D and the Note A-2 Holder is the Non-Controlling Noteholder with respect to Note A-2.

Section 7.       Special Servicer. The Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative), at its expense (including, without limitation, the reasonable costs and expenses of counsel to any third parties and costs and expenses of the terminated Special Servicer), shall have the right to appoint the Special Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loan; provided that either (x) any Special Servicer appointed by the Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative) shall have the Required Special Servicer Rating or (y) the Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative) shall have received Rating Agency Confirmation with respect to the appointment of such Special Servicer from each Rating Agency then rating a Securitization. The Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative) shall be entitled to terminate the rights and obligations of the Special Servicer under the Servicing Agreement, with or without cause, upon at least ten (10) Business Days’ prior notice to the Special Servicer (provided, however, that the Controlling Noteholder and/or Controlling Noteholder Representative shall not be liable for any termination or similar fee in connection with the removal of the Special Servicer in accordance with this Section 7) and satisfaction of the other conditions to such replacement as set forth in the Servicing Agreement.

If a Servicer Termination Event on the part of the Special Servicer has occurred that affects a Non-Controlling Noteholder, such Non-Controlling Noteholder shall have the right to direct the Trustee (or at any time that the Mortgage Loan is no longer included in a Securitization Trust, the Controlling Noteholder) to terminate the Special Servicer under the Servicing Agreement (or at any time that the Mortgage Loan is no longer subject to the provisions of the Servicing Agreement, the successor servicing agreement pursuant to which the Mortgage Loan is being serviced) solely with respect to the Mortgage Loan pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of the Servicing Agreement (or at any time that the Mortgage Loan is no longer subject to the provisions of the Servicing Agreement, the successor servicing agreement pursuant to which the Mortgage Loan is being serviced). The Controlling Noteholder shall be entitled to appoint a replacement special servicer in connection with a termination of the Special Servicer at the direction of a Non-Controlling Noteholder, subject to the satisfaction of the requirements of the Servicing Agreement and this Agreement. The Controlling Noteholder and the Non-Controlling Noteholders acknowledge and agree that any successor special servicer appointed to replace the Special Servicer with respect to the Mortgage Loan that was terminated for cause at a Non-Controlling Noteholder’s direction cannot at any time be the person (or an Affiliate thereof) that was so terminated without the prior written consent of such Non-Controlling Noteholder. The Non-Controlling Noteholder that directs the Trustee to terminate

 45 

 

the Special Servicer shall be solely responsible for reimbursing the Trustee’s or the Controlling Noteholder’s, as applicable, costs and expenses for such termination and replacement, if not paid within a reasonable time by the terminated special servicer and, in the case of the Trustee, that would otherwise be reimbursed to the Trustee from amounts on deposit in the Collection Account or Companion Distribution Account.

For the avoidance of doubt, in no event will the rights of the Non-Controlling Noteholders set forth in the immediately preceding paragraph in any way limit or diminish the rights of the Controlling Noteholder otherwise set forth in this Section 7.

Section 8.       Payment Procedure.

(a)       The Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf), in accordance with the priorities set forth in Section 3 or Section 4, as applicable, and subject to the terms of the Servicing Agreement, shall deposit or cause to be deposited all payments allocable to the Notes to the Collection Account or Companion Distribution Account for the Notes established pursuant to the Servicing Agreement. The Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer acting on its behalf) shall deposit such amounts to the applicable account within two (2) Business Days following receipt of properly identified and available funds by the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer acting on its behalf) from or on behalf of the Mortgage Loan Borrower.

(b)      If the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) determines, or a court of competent jurisdiction orders, at any time that any amount received or collected in respect of a Note must, pursuant to any insolvency bankruptcy, fraudulent conveyance, preference or similar law, be returned to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or paid to such Noteholder or any Servicer or paid to any other Person, then, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) shall not be required to distribute any portion thereof to such Noteholder and such Noteholder will promptly on demand by the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) repay to the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) any portion thereof that the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) shall have theretofore distributed to such Noteholder together with interest thereon at such rate, if any, as the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) shall have been required to pay to any Mortgage Loan Borrower, the Lead Securitization Noteholder, Master Servicer, Special Servicer or such other Person with respect thereto.

(c)       If, for any reason, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) makes any payment to a Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder or Note B Holder before the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) has received the corresponding payment (it being understood that the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) is under no obligation to do so), and the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) does not receive the corresponding payment within three (3) Business Days of its payment to the applicable Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder, the applicable Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder or Note B Holder shall, at the Lead Securitization Noteholder’s (or the Servicer’s on its behalf) request, promptly return that payment to the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf).

 46 

 

(d)  Each Noteholder agrees that if at any time it shall receive from any sources whatsoever any payment on account of the Mortgage Loan in excess of its distributable share thereof, it will promptly remit such excess to the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) subject to this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement. The Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) shall have the right to offset any amounts due hereunder from any Noteholder with respect to the Mortgage Loan against any future payments due to such Noteholder under the Mortgage Loan, provided, that each Noteholder’s obligations under this Section 8 are separate and distinct obligations from one another and in no event shall the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) enforce the obligations of one of the Noteholder against the other Noteholders. Each Noteholder’s obligations under this Section 8 constitute absolute, unconditional and continuing obligations.

Section 9.       Limitation on Liability of the Noteholders. No Noteholder (including any Servicer on a Noteholder’s behalf, but only to the extent that the Servicing Agreement does not impose any other standard upon any Servicer, in which case the Servicing Agreement shall control) shall have any liability to any other Noteholder except with respect to losses actually suffered due to the gross negligence, willful misconduct or breach of this Agreement on the part of such Noteholder.

The Noteholders acknowledge that, subject to the terms and conditions hereof and the obligation of the Lead Securitization Noteholder (including any Servicer) to comply with, and except as otherwise required by, Accepted Servicing Practices, the Lead Securitization Noteholder (including any Servicer) may exercise, or omit to exercise, any rights that the Lead Securitization Noteholder may have under this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement in a manner that may be adverse to the interests of Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders and the Note B Holder and that the Lead Securitization Noteholder (including any Servicer) shall have no liability whatsoever to the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders or the Note B Holder in connection with the Lead Securitization Noteholder’s exercise of rights or any omission by the Lead Securitization Noteholder to exercise such rights other than as described above; provided, however, that the Servicer must act in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices.

The Noteholders acknowledge that, subject to the terms and conditions hereof and the obligations of the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders (including any Non-Lead Servicer) to comply with, and except as otherwise required by, Accepted Servicing Practices, the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders (including any Non-Lead Servicer) may exercise, or omit to exercise, any rights that a Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder may have under this Agreement and the applicable Non-Lead Servicing Agreement in a manner that may be adverse to the interests of the other Noteholders and that each Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder (including any Non-Lead Servicer) shall have no liability whatsoever to the other Noteholders in connection with such Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders’ exercise of rights or any omission by the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders to exercise such rights other than as described above; provided, however, that the Non-Lead Servicer must act in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices.

The Lead Securitization Noteholder and the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders acknowledge that, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Note B Holder may exercise, or omit to exercise, any rights that the Note B Holder may have under this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement in a manner that may be adverse to the interests of the Lead Securitization

 47 

 

Noteholder or the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders and that the Note B Holder shall have no liability whatsoever to the Lead Securitization Noteholder and the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders in connection with the Note B Holder’s exercise of rights or any omission by the Note B Holder to exercise such rights; provided, however, that the Note B Holder shall not be protected against any liability to the Lead Securitization Noteholder and the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders that would otherwise be imposed by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence.

Section 10.     Bankruptcy.

Each of the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders and the Note B Holder hereby appoints the Lead Securitization Noteholder as its agent, and grants to the Lead Securitization Noteholder an irrevocable power of attorney coupled with an interest, and its proxy, for the purpose of exercising any and all rights and taking any and all actions available to each of the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders and the Note B Holder in connection with any case by or against the Mortgage Loan Borrower under the Bankruptcy Code or in any other Insolvency Proceeding, including, without limitation, the right to file and/or prosecute any claim, vote to accept or reject a plan, to make any election under Section 1111(b) of the Bankruptcy Code with respect to the Mortgage Loan, and to file a motion to modify, lift or terminate the automatic stay with respect to the Mortgage Loan.

Section 11.     Cure Rights of the Note B Holder.

(a)       Subject to Section 11(b) below, in the event that the Mortgage Loan Borrower fails to make any payment of principal or interest on the Mortgage Loan by the end of the applicable grace period (the “Grace Period”) for such payment permitted under the applicable Mortgage Loan Documents (a “Monetary Default”), the Lead Securitization Noteholder shall provide notice to the Note B Holder and the Controlling Noteholder Representative (in each

 48 

 

case, unless a Control Appraisal Period has occurred and is continuing) of such default (the “Monetary Default Notice”). If the Note B Holder or the Controlling Noteholder Representative (in each case, unless a Control Appraisal Period has occurred and is continuing) has not cured such Monetary Default within ten (10) Business Days after receiving the Monetary Default Notice, the Lead Securitization Noteholder shall deliver an additional copy of the Monetary Default Notice that contains a statement in boldface font that this is a second notice and that the Note B Holder’s or the Controlling Noteholder Representative’s failure to cure such Monetary Default within ten (10) Business Days after receiving such second notice will result in the termination of the right to cure such Monetary Default. The Note B Holder (unless a Control Appraisal Period has occurred and is continuing) shall have the right, but not the obligation, to cure such Monetary Default after receiving the first Monetary Default Notice and until the period ending ten (10) Business Days after receiving the second Monetary Default Notice (the “Cure Period”) and at no other times. At the time a payment is made to cure a Monetary Default, the Note B Holder (unless a Control Appraisal Period has occurred and is continuing) shall pay or reimburse the Lead Securitization Noteholder for all unreimbursed Advances (whether or not recoverable with respect to the Lead Securitization Note and each Non-Lead Securitization Note, including principal and interest advances made with respect to such Non-Lead Securitization Note under the related Non-Lead Servicing Agreement), Advance Interest Amounts, any unpaid fees to any Servicer specifically provided for in the Servicing Agreement and any Additional Servicing Expenses. The Note B Holder shall not be required, in order to effect a cure hereunder, to pay any default interest or late charges under the Mortgage Loan Documents. So long as a Monetary Default exists for which a cure payment permitted hereunder is made, such Monetary Default shall not be treated as an Event of Default by the Lead Securitization Noteholder (including for purposes of (i) the definition of “Sequential Pay Event,” (ii) accelerating the Mortgage Loan, modifying, amending or waiving any provisions of the Mortgage Loan Documents or commencing proceedings for foreclosure or the taking of title by deed-in-lieu of foreclosure or other similar legal proceedings with respect to the Mortgaged Property; or (iii) treating the Mortgage Loan as a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan); provided that such limitation shall not prevent the Lead Securitization Noteholder from collecting Default Interest or late charges from the Mortgage Loan Borrower to be applied in accordance with this Agreement and the Lead Securitization Servicing Agreement. Any amounts advanced by a Noteholder on behalf of the Mortgage Loan Borrower to effect any cure shall be reimbursable to such Noteholder under Section 3 or Section 4, as applicable.

(b)      Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 11(a), the Note B Holder shall be limited to a combined total of six (6) cures of Monetary Defaults, no more than three (3) of which may be consecutive, or Non-Monetary Defaults over the term of the Mortgage Loan. Additional Cure Periods shall only be permitted with the consent of the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or, if the Lead Securitization Note is included in a Securitization, the Special Servicer on its behalf) which may be withheld in its sole and absolute discretion.

(c)       No action taken by the Note B Holder in accordance with this Agreement shall excuse performance by the Mortgage Loan Borrower of its obligations under the Mortgage Loan Documents and the Lead Securitization Noteholder’s and the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders’ rights under the Mortgage Loan Documents shall not be waived or prejudiced by virtue of such Note B Holder’s actions under this Agreement. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Note B Holder shall be subrogated to the Lead Securitization Noteholder’s and

 49 

 

the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders’ rights to any payment owing to the Lead Securitization Noteholder and the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders for which the Note B Holder makes a cure payment as permitted under this Section 11 but such subrogation rights may not be exercised against the Mortgage Loan Borrower until 91 days after the Note is paid in full.

(d)      If an Event of Default (other than a Monetary Default) occurs and is continuing under the Mortgage Loan Documents (a “Non-Monetary Default”), the Lead Securitization Noteholder shall promptly provide notice to the Note B Holder and the Controlling Noteholder Representative (in each case, unless a Control Appraisal Period has occurred and is continuing) of such failure (the “Non-Monetary Default Notice”) and the Note B Holder (unless a Control Appraisal Period has occurred and is continuing) shall have the right, but not the obligation, to cure such Non-Monetary Default within the same period of time as the Mortgage Loan Borrower under the Mortgage Loan Documents, without regard for the date of receipt by the Note B Holder and the Controlling Noteholder Representative of the Non-Monetary Default Notice, or in any event, up to thirty (30) days, to cure such Non-Monetary Default; provided, however, if such Non-Monetary Default is susceptible of cure but cannot reasonably be cured within such period and if curative action was promptly commenced and is being diligently pursued by the Note B Holder, the Note B Holder (unless a Control Appraisal Period has occurred and is continuing) shall be given an additional period of time as is reasonably necessary to enable the Note B Holder in the exercise of due diligence to cure such Non-Monetary Default for so long as (i) the Note B Holder diligently and expeditiously proceed to cure such Non-Monetary Default, (ii) the Note B Holder s make all cure payments that it is permitted to make in accordance with the terms and provisions of Section 11(a) hereof, (iii) such additional period of time does not exceed ninety (90) days, (iv) such Non-Monetary Default is not caused by an Insolvency Proceeding or during such period of time that the Note B Holder have to cure a Non-Monetary Default in accordance with this Section 11(d) (the “Non-Monetary Default Cure Period”), an Insolvency Proceeding does not occur and (v) during such Non-Monetary Default Cure Period, there is no material adverse effect on the Mortgage Loan Borrower or the Mortgaged Property or the value of the Mortgage Loan as a result of such Non-Monetary Default or the attempted cure. The Non-Monetary Default Notice shall contain a statement in boldface font that the Note B Holder’s and the Controlling Noteholder Representative’s failure to cure such Non-Monetary Default within the applicable Non-Monetary Default Cure Period after receiving such notice will result in the termination of the right to cure such Non-Monetary Default. The Note B Holder and the Controlling Noteholder Representative shall not contact the Mortgage Loan Borrower in order to effect any cures under Sections 11(a) or this 11(d) unless it is in conjunction with the Special Servicer or the Note B Holder has obtained the prior written consent of the Lead Securitization Noteholder.

Section 12.     Purchase Rights of the Note B Holder. The Note B Holder shall have the right, by written notice to the Senior Noteholders (a “Noteholder Purchase Notice”), delivered at any time an Event of Default under the Mortgage Loan has occurred and is continuing, to purchase, in immediately available funds, the Senior Notes in whole but not in part at the applicable Defaulted Mortgage Loan Purchase Price. For avoidance of doubt, if the Note B Holder elects to exercise its right to purchase a Note pursuant to this Section 12, it must purchase each of Senior Notes. Upon the delivery of the Noteholder Purchase Notice to the Senior Noteholders, Senior Noteholders shall sell (and the Note B Holder shall purchase) the Senior Notes (including, without limitation, any interests therein) at the applicable Defaulted Mortgage

 50 

 

Loan Purchase Price, on a date (the “Defaulted Note Purchase Date”) not less than ten (10) and not more than thirty (30) days after the date of the Noteholder Purchase Notice, as shall be established by the Lead Securitization Noteholder. The Note B Holder agrees that the sale of the Senior Notes shall comply with all requirements of the Servicing Agreement and that all costs and expenses related thereto shall be paid by the Note B Holder. The Defaulted Mortgage Loan Purchase Price shall be calculated by the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) three (3) Business Days prior to the Defaulted Note Purchase Date (and such calculation shall be accompanied by a listing of all amounts included in the Defaulted Mortgage Loan Purchase Price), and shall, absent manifest error, be binding upon the Note B Holder. Concurrently with the payment to the Senior Noteholders in immediately available funds of its respective portion of the applicable Defaulted Mortgage Loan Purchase Price, the Senior Noteholders shall execute at the sole cost and expense of the Note B Holder in favor of the Note B Holder assignment documentation which will assign the Senior Notes, as applicable, and the Mortgage Loan Documents without recourse, representations or warranties (except the Senior Noteholders, as applicable, shall represent and warrant that it had good and marketable title to, was the sole owner and holder of, and had power and authority to deliver the Mortgage Loan or Note, as applicable, free and clear of all liens and encumbrances (other than the interest created by the Note B Holder)). The right of the Note B Holder to purchase the Senior Notes shall automatically terminate upon a foreclosure sale, sale by power of sale or delivery of a deed in lieu of foreclosure with respect to the Mortgaged Property (and the Lead Securitization Noteholder shall give the Note B Holder ten (10) days’ notice of its intent with respect to such action). Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, if title to the Mortgaged Property is transferred to the Servicer (or other nominee on behalf of the Noteholders) less than ten (10) days after the acceleration of the Mortgage Loan, the Lead Securitization Noteholder shall notify the Note B Holder of such transfer and the Note B Holder shall have a ten (10) day period from the date of such notice from the Lead Securitization Noteholder to deliver the Noteholder Purchase Notice to the Senior Noteholders, in which case the Note B Holder will be obligated to purchase the Mortgaged Property, in immediately available funds, within such thirty (30) day period at the applicable Defaulted Mortgage Loan Purchase Price. Any such purchase of the Senior Notes by the Note B Holder shall be free and clear of any liens.

Section 13.     Representations of the Note B Holder. The Note B Holder represents, and it is specifically understood and agreed, that it is acquiring Note B for its own account in the ordinary course of its business and the Senior Noteholders shall otherwise have no liability or responsibility to the Note B Holder except as expressly provided herein or for actions that are taken or omitted to be taken by the Senior Noteholders that constitute gross negligence or willful misconduct or that constitute a breach of this Agreement.

The Note B Holder acknowledges that the Senior Noteholders do not owe the Note B Holder any fiduciary duty with respect to any action taken under the Mortgage Loan Documents and, except as provided herein, need not consult with the Note B Holder with respect to any action taken by the Senior Noteholders in connection with the Mortgage Loan.

The Note B Holder expressly and irrevocably waives for itself and any Person claiming through or under the Note B Holder any and all rights that it may have under Section 1315 of the New York Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law or the provisions of any similar law which purports to give a junior loan Noteholder the right to initiate any loan enforcement or foreclosure proceedings.

Section 14.     Representations of the Initial Senior Noteholders. Each of the Senior Noteholders represents and warrants that the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement is within its corporate powers, has been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action, and does not contravene the applicable Senior Noteholder’s charter or any law or contractual restriction binding upon such Senior Noteholder, and that this Agreement is the legal, valid and binding obligation of each Senior Noteholder, enforceable against each of them in accordance with its terms.

The Note B Holder acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Initial Senior Noteholders, except with respect to the representations and warranties provided by the Initial Senior Noteholders herein, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to purchase the Note B Holder and the Note B Holder accepts responsibility therefor. The Note B Holder hereby acknowledges that, other than the representations and warranties provided herein, the Senior Noteholders have made no representations or warranties with respect to the Mortgage Loan, subject to such representations

 52 

 

and warranties as provided by the Senior Noteholders herein, and that the Senior Noteholders shall have no responsibility for (i) the collectibility of the Mortgage Loan, (ii) the validity, enforceability or legal effect of any of the Mortgage Loan Documents or the title insurance policy or policies or any survey furnished or to be furnished to the Senior Noteholders in connection with the origination of the Mortgage Loan, (iii) the validity, sufficiency or effectiveness of the lien created or to be created by the Mortgage Loan Documents, or (iv) the financial condition of the Mortgage Loan Borrower. The Note B Holder assumes all risk of loss in connection with Note B except as specifically set forth herein.

Section 16.     No Creation of a Partnership or Exclusive Purchase Right. Nothing contained in this Agreement, and no action taken pursuant hereto shall be deemed to constitute the relationship created hereby among any of the Noteholders as a partnership, association, joint venture or other entity. No Noteholder shall have no obligation whatsoever to offer to the other Noteholders the opportunity to purchase a participation interest in any future loans originated by such Noteholder or their Affiliates and if any Noteholder chooses to offer to the other Noteholders the opportunity to purchase a participation interest in any future loans originated by such Noteholder or their Affiliates, such offer shall be at such purchase price and interest rate as such Noteholder chooses, in its sole and absolute discretion. No Noteholder shall have any obligation whatsoever to purchase from the other Noteholders a Note interest in any future loans originated by such Noteholders or their Affiliates.

Section 17.     Not a Security. Note B shall not be deemed to be a security within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Section 18.     Other Business Activities of the Noteholders. Each Noteholder acknowledges that the other Noteholders or their Affiliates may make loans or otherwise extend credit to, and generally engage in any kind of business with, the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any direct or indirect parent or Affiliate thereof, any entity that is a holder of debt secured by direct or indirect ownership interests in the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Affiliate thereof or any entity that is a holder of a preferred equity interest in the Mortgage Loan Borrower, any principal thereof or any Affiliate thereof (each, a “Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party”), and receive payments on such other loans or extensions of credit to Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Parties and otherwise act with respect thereto freely and without accountability in the same manner as if this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby were not in effect.

Section 19.     Sale of the Notes.

(a)The Note B Holder agrees that it will not Transfer all or any portion of Note B without the prior written consent of the other Noteholders, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, provided that (i) the Note B Holder shall have the right to Transfer Note B, or any portion thereof, to a Qualified Institutional Lender without obtaining such prior written consent, provided that promptly after the Transfer, (x) the other Noteholders are provided with (I) a representation from a transferee or the Note B Holder certifying that such transferee is a Qualified Institutional Lender and (II) a copy of the assignment and assumption agreement referred to in Section 20 and (y) such transfer would not cause Note B to be held by more than five persons nor cause there to be no one Person owning a

 53 

 

majority of Note B and (ii) if the Note B Holder wishes to Transfer its Note B, or any portion thereof, to an entity that is not a Qualified Institutional Lender after a Securitization, no consent of the other Noteholders shall be required, but the Note B Holder shall first obtain (and deliver to the other Noteholders) Rating Agency Confirmation with respect to each Securitization. If Note B is held by more than one holder at any time, the holders of a majority of the Principal Balance of Note B shall immediately appoint a representative to exercise all rights of the Note B Holder hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, without the prior consent of the Senior Noteholders, which may be withheld in such Noteholders’ sole discretion, the Note B Holder shall not Transfer all or any portion of Note B to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or a Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party without obtaining Rating Agency Confirmation with respect to each Securitization and any such Transfer shall be absolutely null and void and shall vest no rights in the purported transferee. The Note B Holder agrees it will pay the expenses of the other Noteholders (including all expenses of the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer) in connection with any such Transfer. The Agent shall provide two (2) Business Days prior written notice to each Rating Agency of any Transfer.

(b)      Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Note B Holder shall have the right, without the need to obtain the consent of the other Noteholders or any other Person, to Transfer 49% or less (in the aggregate) of its interest in Note B to a Person that has no direct rights with respect to Note B or to a Qualified Institutional Lender; provided that any such Transfer shall be made in accordance with the terms of this Section 19. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Note B Holder shall not Transfer all or any portion of Note B to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or a Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party and any such Transfer shall be absolutely null and void and shall vest no rights in the purported transferee. All Transfers under Section 19(a) and (b) shall be made upon written notice to the other Noteholders not later than the date of such Transfer, and each transferee shall (i) execute an assignment and assumption agreement whereby such transferee assumes all or a ratable portion, as the case may be, of the obligations of the Note B Holder hereunder with respect to Note B first arising from and after the date of such assignment (or, in the case, of a pledge, collateral assignment or other encumbrance made in accordance with Section 19(e) by the Note B Holder of Note B solely as security for a loan to the Note B Holder made by a third-party lender whereby the Note B Holder remains fully liable under this Agreement, on or before the date on which such lender succeeds to the rights of the Note B Holder by foreclosure or otherwise, such third-party lender executes an agreement that such lender shall be bound by the terms and provisions of this Agreement and the obligations of the Note B Holder hereunder) and (ii) agree in writing to be bound by the Servicing Agreement, unless the Servicing Agreement is not then in effect with respect to the Mortgage Loan, in which event the parties will enter into or agree to be bound by any replacement servicing agreement therefor in accordance with the provisions hereof. Upon the consummation of a Transfer of all or any portion of Note B in accordance with this Agreement, the transferring Person shall be released from all liability arising under this Agreement with respect to Note B (or the portion thereof that was the subject of such Transfer), for the period after the effective date of such Transfer (it being understood and agreed that the foregoing release shall not apply in the case of a sale, assignment, transfer or other disposition of a participation interest in Note B as described in clause (c) below). In connection with any such permitted Transfer of a portion of Note B and for all purposes of this Agreement, the other Noteholders need only recognize the majority holder of Note B for purposes of notices, consents and other communications between Noteholders, and such majority holder of Note B shall be the only Person authorized hereunder

 54 

 

to exercise any rights of the Note B Holder under this Agreement; provided, however, the majority holder of Note B may from time to time designate any other Person as an additional party entitled to receive notices, consents and other communications and/or to exercise rights on behalf of the Note B Holder hereunder by delivering written notice thereof to the other Noteholders, and, from and after delivery of such notice, such designee shall be so authorized hereunder and shall be the only party entitled to receive such notices, consents and such other communications and/or to exercise such rights.

(c)       In the case of any sale, assignment, transfer or other disposition of a participation interest in a Note, (i) such Noteholder’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Noteholder shall remain solely responsible for the performance of such obligations, (iii) the other Noteholders and any Persons acting on its behalf shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Noteholder in connection with such Noteholder’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement, and (iv) all amounts payable hereunder shall be determined as if such Noteholder had not sold such participation interest; provided, however, that if the applicable participant is a Qualified Institutional Lender (and delivers to the other Noteholders a certification from an authorized officer confirming its status as a Qualified Institutional Lender), such Noteholder, by written notice to the other Noteholders, may delegate to such participant such Noteholder’s right to exercise the rights of the Controlling Noteholder hereunder and under the Servicing Agreement; provided, further, however, that upon the occurrence of a Control Appraisal Period with respect to Note B, the aforesaid delegation of rights shall terminate and be of no further force and effect.

(d)      The Senior Noteholders shall each have the right to Transfer all or any portion of its respective Note without the prior consent of any other Noteholder to (i) the depositor for a Securitization of all or any portion of such Note and the related Securitization Trust, (ii) prior to the occurrence of a Securitization of all or any portion of such Note, a Qualified Institutional Lender (provided that any Transferee in connection with the Securitization of such Note shall not be required to be a Qualified Institutional Lender) and (iii) after the occurrence of a Securitization of all or any portion of such Note, to any party in accordance with the applicable Pooling and Servicing Agreement, except that such Noteholder shall not Transfer all or any portion of such Note to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or a Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party without obtaining Rating Agency Confirmation with respect to each Securitization and any such Transfer to the Mortgage Loan Borrower or a Mortgage Loan Borrower Related Party shall be absolutely null and void and shall vest no rights in the purported transferee; provided that, after a Securitization, if a Senior Noteholder intends to transfer its Note to an entity that is not a Qualified Institutional Lender it must first obtain Rating Agency Confirmation from each Rating Agency rating a Securitization.

(e)       Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, any Noteholder may pledge (a “Pledge”) its Note to any entity (other than the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Affiliate thereof) which has extended a credit or repurchase facility to such Noteholder and that is either a Qualified Institutional Lender or a financial institution whose long-term unsecured debt is rated at least “A” (or the equivalent) or better by each Rating Agency (a “Note Pledgee”), on terms and conditions set forth in this Section 19(e), it being further agreed that a financing provided by a Note Pledgee to a Noteholder or any person which Controls such Noteholder that is secured by such Noteholder’s interest in the applicable Note and is structured as a repurchase arrangement,

 55 

 

shall qualify as a “Pledge” hereunder, provided that a Note Pledgee which is not a Qualified Institutional Lender may not take title to the pledged Note without (a) prior to a Securitization, the consent of each other Noteholder and, (b) after a Securitization, Rating Agency Confirmation. Upon written notice by the applicable Noteholder to the other Noteholders and any Servicer that a Pledge has been effected (including the name and address of the applicable Note Pledgee), each of the other Noteholders agrees to acknowledge receipt of such notice and thereafter agrees: (i) to give the Note Pledgee written notice of any default by the pledging Noteholder in respect of its obligations under this Agreement of which default such Noteholder has actual knowledge; (ii) to allow such Note Pledgee a period of ten (10) days to cure a default by the pledging Noteholder in respect of its obligations to the other Noteholder hereunder, but such Note Pledgee shall not be obligated to cure any such default; (iii) that no amendment, modification, waiver or termination of this Agreement shall be effective against such Note Pledgee without the written consent of such Note Pledgee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; (iv) that such other Noteholder shall give to such Note Pledgee copies of any notice of default under this Agreement simultaneously with the giving of same to the pledging Noteholder and accept any cure thereof by such Note Pledgee which such pledging Noteholder has the right (but not the obligation) to effect hereunder, as if such cure were made by such pledging Noteholder; (v) that such other Noteholder shall deliver to Note Pledgee such estoppel certificate(s) as Note Pledgee shall reasonably request, provided that any such certificate(s) shall be in a form reasonably satisfactory to such other Noteholder; and (vi) that, upon written notice (a “Redirection Notice”) to the other Noteholders and any Servicer by such Note Pledgee that the pledging Noteholder is in default, beyond any applicable cure periods, under the pledging Noteholder’s obligations to such Note Pledgee pursuant to the applicable credit agreement between the pledging Noteholder and such Note Pledgee (which notice need not be joined in or confirmed by the pledging Noteholder), and until such Redirection Notice is withdrawn or rescinded by such Note Pledgee, Note Pledgee shall be entitled to receive any payments that any Noteholder or Servicer would otherwise be obligated to pay to the pledging Noteholder from time to time pursuant to this Agreement or any Servicing Agreement. Any pledging Noteholder hereby unconditionally and absolutely releases the other Noteholders and any Servicer from any liability to the pledging Noteholder on account of any Noteholder’s or Servicer’s compliance with any Redirection Notice believed in good faith by any Servicer or any such other Noteholder to have been delivered by a Note Pledgee. Note Pledgee shall be permitted to exercise fully its rights and remedies against the pledging Noteholder to such Note Pledgee (and accept an assignment in lieu of foreclosure as to such collateral), in accordance with applicable law and this Agreement. In such event, the Noteholders and any Servicer shall recognize such Note Pledgee (and any transferee other than the Mortgage Loan Borrower or any Affiliate thereof which is also a Qualified Institutional Lender at any foreclosure or similar sale held by such Note Pledgee or any transfer in lieu of foreclosure), and its successor and assigns, as the successor to the pledging Noteholder’s rights, remedies and obligations under this Agreement, and any such Note Pledgee or Qualified Institutional Lender shall assume in writing the obligations of the pledging Noteholder hereunder accruing from and after such Transfer (i.e., realization upon the collateral by such Note Pledgee) and agrees to be bound by the terms and provisions of this Agreement. The rights of a Note Pledgee under this Section 19(e) shall remain effective as to any Noteholder (and any Servicer) unless and until such Note Pledgee shall have notified any such Noteholder (and any Servicer, as applicable) in writing that its interest in the pledged Note has terminated.

 56 

 

(f)       Notwithstanding any provisions herein to the contrary, if a conduit (“Conduit”) which is not a Qualified Institutional Lender provides financing to a Noteholder then such Noteholder shall have the right to grant a security interest in its Note to such Conduit notwithstanding that such Conduit is not a Qualified Institutional Lender, if the following conditions are satisfied:

(i)     The loan (the “Conduit Inventory Loan”) made by the Conduit to such Noteholder to finance the acquisition and holding of its Note will require a third party (the “Conduit Credit Enhancer”) to provide credit enhancement;

(ii)     The Conduit Credit Enhancer and conduit manager (if Moody’s rates the Securitization) will be a Qualified Institutional Lender;

(iii)     Such Noteholder will pledge (or sell, transfer or assign as part of a repurchase facility) its interest in the applicable Note to the Conduit as collateral for the Conduit Inventory Loan;

(iv)     The Conduit Credit Enhancer and the Conduit will agree that, if such Noteholder defaults under the Conduit Inventory Loan, or if the Conduit is unable to refinance its outstanding commercial paper even if there is no default by such Noteholder, the Conduit Credit Enhancer will purchase the Conduit Inventory Loan from the Conduit, and the Conduit will assign the pledge of such Noteholder’s Note to the Conduit Credit Enhancer; and

(v)     Unless the Conduit is in fact then a Qualified Institutional Lender, the Conduit will not, without obtaining the consent of each other Noteholder, have any greater right to acquire the interests in the Note pledged by such Noteholder, by foreclosure or otherwise, than would any other purchaser that is not a Qualified Institutional Lender at a foreclosure sale conducted by a Note Pledgee.

Section 20.     Registration of Transfer. In connection with any Transfer of a Note (but excluding any Pledgee unless and until it realizes on its Pledge), a transferee shall execute an assignment and assumption agreement whereby such transferee assumes all of the obligations of the applicable Noteholder hereunder with respect to such Note thereafter accruing and agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, including the restriction on Transfers set forth in Section 19, from and after the date of such assignment. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, a Trustee shall not be required to execute an assignment and assumption agreement in connection with any Transfer of a Note if the obligations are assumed pursuant to the Servicing Agreement. No transfer of a Note may be made unless it is registered on the Note Register, and the Agent shall not recognize any attempted or purported Transfer of any Note in violation of the provisions of Section 19 and this Section 20. Any such purported Transfer shall be absolutely null and void and shall vest no rights in the purported transferee. Each Noteholder desiring to effect such Transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Agent and any other Noteholder against any liability that may result if the Transfer is not made in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. Upon a Securitization of the Lead Securitization Note, the Certificate Administrator shall automatically become and be the Agent.

 57 

 

Section 21.     Registration of Notes. The Agent shall keep or cause to be kept at the Agent Office books (the “Note Register”) for the registration and transfer of the Notes. The Agent shall serve as the initial Note registrar and the Agent hereby accepts such appointment. The names and addresses of the holders of the Notes and the names and addresses of any transferee of any Note of which the Agent has received notice, in the form of a copy of the assignment and assumption agreement referred to in Section 20, shall be registered in the Note Register. The Person in whose name a Note is so registered shall be deemed and treated as the sole owner and holder thereof for all purposes of this Agreement, except in the case of the Initial Noteholders who may hold their Notes through a nominee. Upon request of a Noteholder, the Agent shall provide such party with the names and addresses of the Noteholders. To the extent another party is appointed as Agent hereunder, the Noteholders hereby designate such person as its agent under this Section 21 solely for purposes of maintaining the Note Register.

Section 22.     Statement of Intent. The Agent and each Noteholder intend that the Notes be classified and maintained as a grantor trust under subpart E, part I of subchapter J of chapter 1 of the Code that is a fixed investment trust within the meaning of Treasury Regulation §301.7701-4(c), and the parties will not take any action inconsistent with such classification. It is neither the purpose nor the intent of this Agreement to create a partnership, joint venture, “taxable mortgage pool” or association taxable as a corporation among the parties.

Section 23.     No Pledge. This Agreement shall not be deemed to represent a pledge of any interest in any Mortgage Loan by any Noteholder to another Noteholder. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement and the Servicing Agreement, the Note B Holder shall not have any interest in any property taken as security for any Mortgage Loan, provided, however, that if any such property or the proceeds of any sale, lease or other disposition thereof shall be received, then the Note B Holder shall be entitled to receive its share of such application in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and/or the Servicing Agreement.

Section 24.     Cooperation in Securitization.

(a)Each Noteholder acknowledges that any Noteholder may elect, in its sole discretion, and at its sole cost and expense, to include its Note in a Securitization. In connection with a Securitization and subject to the terms of the preceding sentence, (x) at the request of the securitizing Noteholder, each non-securitizing Noteholder shall use commercially reasonable efforts, at the securitizing Noteholder’s expense, to satisfy, and to cooperate with the securitizing Noteholder in attempting to cause the Mortgage Loan Borrower to satisfy, the market standards to which such securitizing Noteholder customarily adheres or which may be reasonably required in the marketplace or by the Rating Agencies in connection with the Securitization, including, entering into (or consenting to, as applicable) any modifications to this Agreement or the Mortgage Loan Documents and to cooperate with the securitizing Noteholder in attempting to cause the Mortgage Loan Borrower to execute such modifications to the Mortgage Loan Documents, in any such case, as may be reasonably requested by the Rating Agencies to effect the Securitization; provided, however, that no non-securitizing Noteholder shall be required to modify or amend this Agreement or any Mortgage Loan Documents (or consent to such modification, as applicable) in connection therewith, if such modification or amendment would (i) change the interest allocable to, or the amount of any payments due to or priority of such payments, such Noteholder or (ii) increase such Noteholder’s obligations (other than to an

 58 

 

immaterial extent) or decrease such Noteholder’s rights, remedies or protections (other than to an immaterial extent). In connection with the Securitization, each non-securitizing Noteholder shall, at the sole cost and expense of the securitizing Noteholder, to provide for inclusion in any disclosure document relating to the related Securitization such information concerning such non-securitizing Noteholder and the other Notes as the securitizing Noteholder reasonably determines to be necessary or appropriate; and (y) each non-securitizing Noteholder shall cooperate, at the sole cost and expense of the securitizing Noteholder, with the reasonable requests of each Rating Agency and the securitizing Noteholder in connection with the Securitization, as well as in connection with all other matters and the preparation of any offering documents thereof and to review and respond reasonably promptly with respect to any information relating to it and the other Notes in any Securitization document. Each Noteholder acknowledges that any information provided by it to a securitizing Noteholder may be incorporated into the offering documents for a Securitization. Each securitizing Noteholder and each Rating Agency shall be entitled to rely on the information supplied by, or on behalf of, the non-securitizing Noteholders.

(b)  A securitizing Noteholder may, at its election, deliver to the other Noteholders drafts of the preliminary and final Securitization offering memoranda, prospectus supplement, free writing prospectus and any other disclosure documents and the servicing agreement at such time as it deems necessary or appropriate in connection with the Securitization of the related Note. Each of the non-securitizing Noteholders may, at its election, review and comment thereon insofar as it relates to such Noteholder or its Note, and, if such non-securitizing Noteholder elects to review and comment, such non-securitizing Noteholder shall review and comment thereon as soon as possible but in no event later than two (2) Business Days of its receipt thereof (or five (5) Business Days after receipt, in the case of the first draft thereof delivered to such non-securitizing Noteholder) and if such non-securitizing Noteholder fails to respond within such time, such non-securitizing Noteholder shall be deemed to have elected to not comment thereon, provided that if such non-securitizing Noteholder elects to review and comment, any such review and comments with respect to the final draft distributed in connection with the preparation of the preliminary and final offering memoranda for printing shall be made no later than 9:00 am, New York City time, on the Business Day following its receipt thereof and if such non-Securitizing Noteholder fails to respond by such time, such non-Securitizing Noteholder shall be deemed to have elected to not comment thereon. In the event of any disagreement between such non-Securitizing Noteholder with respect to the preliminary and final offering memoranda, prospectus supplement, free writing prospectus or any other disclosure documents the Securitizing Noteholder’s determination shall control. A non-Securitizing Noteholder has no obligation and shall have no liability with respect to any such offering documents other than the accuracy of any comments it elects to make or refrain from making, regarding itself.

(c)Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, each Senior Noteholder acknowledge and agree that (i) the Note B Holder shall not be required to incur any out-of-pocket expenses in connection with a Securitization of the Senior Notes and (ii) the Note B Holder shall not be required to disclose any beneficial owner of a managed account on behalf of which it is holding Note B.

 59

(b)      CONSENTS THAT ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING MAY BE BROUGHT IN SUCH COURTS AND, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WAIVES ANY OBJECTION THAT IT MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE TO THE VENUE OF ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING IN ANY SUCH COURT OR THAT SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING WAS BROUGHT IN AN INCONVENIENT COURT AND AGREES NOT TO PLEAD OR CLAIM THE SAME;

(c)       AGREES THAT SERVICE OF PROCESS IN ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING MAY BE EFFECTED BY MAILING A COPY THEREOF BY REGISTERED OR CERTIFIED MAIL (OR ANY SUBSTANTIALLY SIMILAR FORM OF MAIL), POSTAGE PREPAID, TO ITS ADDRESS SET FORTH HEREIN OR AT SUCH OTHER ADDRESS OF WHICH A PARTY HEREIN SHALL HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED; AND

(d)      AGREES THAT NOTHING HEREIN SHALL AFFECT THE RIGHT TO EFFECT SERVICE OF PROCESS IN ANY OTHER MANNER PERMITTED BY LAW OR SHALL LIMIT THE RIGHT TO SUE IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION.

Section 27.     Modifications. This Agreement shall not be modified, cancelled or terminated except by an instrument in writing signed by the parties hereto (other than as set forth in Section 5(b)). Additionally, from and after a Securitization, this Agreement may not be modified in any manner that is materially adverse to the Senior Noteholders unless a Rating Agency Confirmation has been delivered with respect to each Securitization, except that no Rating Agency Confirmation shall be required in connection with a modification pursuant to Section 40 or to cure any ambiguity or to correct or supplement any provision herein that may be defective or inconsistent with any other provisions herein or with the Servicing Agreement.

Section 31.     Severability. Wherever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable laws, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Agreement.

Section 32.     Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter contained in this Agreement and supersedes all prior agreements, understandings and negotiations between the parties.

Section 33.     Withholding Taxes.

(a)       If the Lead Securitization Noteholder or the Mortgage Loan Borrower shall be required by law to deduct and withhold Taxes from interest, fees or other amounts payable to any Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder or the Note B Holder with respect to the Mortgage Loan as a result of any Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder or the Note B Holder constituting a Non-Exempt Person, the Lead Securitization Noteholder, in its capacity as Servicer, shall be entitled to do so with respect to such Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder’s or the Note B Holder’s interest in such payment (all withheld amounts being deemed paid to such Noteholder), provided that the Lead Securitization Noteholder shall furnish such Noteholder with a statement setting forth the amount of Taxes withheld, the applicable rate and other information which may reasonably be requested for purposes of assisting such Noteholder to seek any allowable credits or deductions for the Taxes so withheld in each jurisdiction in which such Noteholder is subject to tax.

(b)      Each Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder (to the extent it is not the same entity as the Lead Securitization Noteholder) and the Note B Holder shall and hereby agree to indemnify the Lead Securitization Noteholder against and hold the Lead Securitization

 61 

 

Noteholder harmless from and against any Taxes, interest, penalties and reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements arising or resulting from any failure of the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) to withhold Taxes from payment made to such Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder or the Note B Holder in reliance upon any representation, certificate, statement, document or instrument made or provided by such Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder or the Note B Holder to the Lead Securitization Noteholder in connection with the obligation of the Lead Securitization Noteholder to withhold Taxes from payments made to such Noteholders, it being expressly understood and agreed that (i) the Lead Securitization Noteholder shall be absolutely and unconditionally entitled to accept any such representation, certificate, statement, document or instrument as being true and correct in all respects and to fully rely thereon without any obligation or responsibility to investigate or to make any inquiries with respect to the accuracy, veracity, correctness or validity of the same and (ii) each Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder and the Note B Holder shall, upon request of the Lead Securitization Noteholder and at its sole cost and expense, defend any claim or action relating to the foregoing indemnification using counsel reasonably acceptable to the Lead Securitization Noteholder.

(c)       Each Non-Lead Securitization Noteholder (to the extent it is not the same entity as the Lead Securitization Noteholder) and the Note B Holder represents to the Lead Securitization Noteholder (for the benefit of the Mortgage Loan Borrower) that it is not a Non-Exempt Person. Contemporaneously with the execution of this Agreement and from time to time as necessary during the term of this Agreement, the Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders (to the extent it is not the same entity as the Lead Securitization Noteholder) and the Note B Holder shall deliver to the Lead Securitization Noteholder or Servicer, as applicable, evidence satisfactory to the Lead Securitization Noteholder substantiating that such Noteholder is not a Non-Exempt Person and that the Lead Securitization Noteholder is not obligated under applicable law to withhold Taxes on sums paid to it with respect to the Mortgage Loan or otherwise under this Agreement. Without limiting the effect of the foregoing, (i) if such Noteholder is created or organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia, it shall satisfy the requirements of the preceding sentence by furnishing to the Lead Securitization Noteholder an Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 and (ii) if such Noteholder is not created or organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia, and if the payment of interest or other amounts by the Mortgage Loan Borrower is treated for United States income tax purposes as derived in whole or part from sources within the United States, such Noteholder shall satisfy the requirements of the preceding sentence by furnishing to the Lead Securitization Noteholder Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI, Form W-8IMY (with appropriate attachments) or Form W-8BEN, or successor forms, as may be required from time to time, duly executed by such Noteholder, as evidence of such Noteholder’s exemption from the withholding of United States tax with respect thereto. The Lead Securitization Noteholder shall not be obligated to make any payment hereunder to any Non-Lead Securitization Noteholders or the Note B Holder in respect of their respective Notes or otherwise until such Noteholder shall have furnished to the Lead Securitization Noteholder the requested forms, certificates, statements or documents.

Section 34.     Custody of Mortgage Loan Documents. The originals of all of the Mortgage Loan Documents (other than the Non-Lead Securitization Notes and Note B) will be

 62 

 

held by the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or a custodian acting on behalf of the Lead Securitization Noteholder) on behalf of the registered holders of the Notes.

Section 35.     [Reserved]

Section 36.     Notices. All notices required hereunder shall be given by (i) telephone (confirmed promptly in writing) or shall be in writing and personally delivered, (ii) sent by facsimile transmission (during business hours) if the sender on the same day sends a confirming copy of such notice by reputable overnight delivery service (charges prepaid), (iii) reputable overnight delivery service (charges prepaid) or (iv) certified United States mail, postage prepaid return receipt requested, and addressed to the respective parties at their addresses set forth on Exhibit B hereto, or at such other address as any party shall hereafter inform the other party by written notice given as aforesaid. All written notices so given shall be deemed effective upon receipt.

All notices and reports (including, without limitation, Asset Status Reports) required to be delivered hereunder by the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf) to the Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative), or by the Controlling Noteholder (or its Controlling Noteholder Representative) to the Lead Securitization Noteholder (or the Servicer on its behalf), shall also be delivered by the applicable party to the other Noteholders.

Section 37.     Broker. Each Noteholder represents to each other Noteholder that no broker was responsible for bringing about this transaction.

Section 38.     Certain Matters Affecting the Agent.

(a)       The Initial Agent is hereby appointed to serve as the Agent in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and shall serve in such capacity until a successor Agent is appointed in accordance with the terms of this Agreement;

(b)      The Agent may request and/or rely upon and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon any officer’s certificate or assignment and assumption agreement delivered to the Agent pursuant to Section 20;

(c)       The Agent 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;

(d)      The Agent shall be under no obligation to institute, conduct or defend any litigation hereunder or in relation hereto at the request, order or direction of any of the Noteholders pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, unless it has received indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it;

(e)       The Agent or any of its directors, officers, employees, Affiliates, agents or “control” persons within the meaning of the Act, shall not be personally liable for any action taken, suffered or omitted by it in good faith and reasonably believed by the Agent to be authorized or within the discretion or rights or powers conferred upon it by this Agreement;

 63 

 

(f)       The Agent shall not be bound to make any investigation into the facts or matters stated in any officer’s certificate or assignment and assumption agreement delivered to the Agent pursuant to Section 20; and

(g)      The Agent may execute any of the powers hereunder or perform any duties hereunder either directly or by or through agents or attorneys but shall not be relieved of its obligations hereunder.

Section 39.     Termination of Agent. The Agent may be terminated at any time upon ten (10) days prior written notice from the Lead Securitization Noteholder. In the event that the Agent is terminated pursuant to this Section 39, all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement shall be terminated, other than any rights or obligations that accrued prior to the date of such termination.

The Agent may resign at any time on ten (10) days’ prior notice, so long as a successor Agent, reasonably satisfactory to the Noteholders (it being agreed that the Servicer, the Trustee or a Certificate Administrator in a Securitization is satisfactory to the Noteholders), has agreed to be bound by this Agreement and perform the duties of the Agent hereunder. SGFC, as Initial Agent, may transfer its rights and obligations to the Servicer, the Trustee or the Certificate Administrator, as successor Agent, at any time without the consent of any Noteholder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Noteholders hereby agree that, simultaneously with the closing of the Lead Securitization, the Certificate Administrator shall be deemed to have been automatically appointed as the successor Agent under this Agreement in place of SGFC without any further notice or other action. The termination or resignation of such Certificate Administrator, as Certificate Administrator under the Servicing Agreement, shall be deemed a termination or resignation of such Certificate Administrator as Agent under this Agreement, and any successor certificate administrator shall be deemed to have been automatically appointed as the successor Agent under this Agreement in place thereof without any further notice or other action.

Section 40.     Resizing. For so long as any Non-Lead Securitization Note is not in a Securitization, the related Noteholder shall have the right, subject to the terms of the Mortgage Loan Documents, to cause the Borrower to execute amended and restated notes or additional notes (in either case, “New Notes”), reallocating the principal of such Note among New Notes; reducing the Interest Rates of such New Notes or severing such Note into one or more further “component” notes in an aggregate principal amount equal to the then outstanding principal balance of such Note, provided that (i) the aggregate principal balance of the New Notes following such amendments is no greater than the principal balance of such Note prior to such amendments, (ii) all such New Notes continue to have the same or a lower interest rate as such Note prior to such amendments, (iii) all such New Notes pay pro rata and on a pari passu basis and such reallocated or component notes shall be automatically subject to the terms of this Agreement and (iv) the Noteholder holding such New Notes shall notify the parties to the Servicing Agreement in writing of such modified allocations and principal amounts. In connection with the foregoing, (1) the Master Servicer is hereby authorized to execute amendments to the Mortgage Loan Agreement and this Agreement (or to amend and restate the Mortgage Loan Agreement and this Agreement) on behalf of any or all of the Holders solely for the purpose of reflecting such reallocation of principal, reduction of Interest Rates or such

 64 

 

severing of such Note, (2) if such Note is severed into “component” notes, such component notes shall each have their same rights as the respective original Note and (3) the definition of the term “Securitization” and all of the related defined terms may be amended (and new terms added, as necessary) to reflect the New Notes. Rating Agency Confirmation shall not be required for any amendments to this Agreement required to facilitate the terms of this Section 40.

SCHEDULE I

 

The Servicing Agreement shall:
