COMM 2012-LC4 Mortgage Trust

Filed: 13 Aug 12, 8:00pm
EXHIBIT 99.1
 
 
MORTGAGE LOAN PURCHASE AGREEMENT
 
This Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement (this “Agreement”), is dated and effective March 20, 2012 between German American Capital Corporation, as seller (the “Seller”), and Deutsche Mortgage & Asset Receiving Corporation, as purchaser (the “Purchaser”).
 
The Seller desires to sell, assign, transfer and otherwise convey to the Purchaser, and the Purchaser desires to purchase, subject to the terms and conditions set forth below, the commercial, multifamily and manufactured housing mortgage loans (collectively, the “Mortgage Loans”) identified on the schedule annexed hereto as Exhibit A (the “Mortgage Loan Schedule”).
 
It is expected that the Mortgage Loans will be transferred, together with other commercial, multifamily and manufactured housing mortgage loans (such Mortgage Loans, the “Other Mortgage Loans”) to COMM 2012-LC4 Mortgage Trust, a trust fund (the “Trust Fund”) to be formed by the Purchaser, the beneficial ownership of which will be evidenced by a series of mortgage pass-through certificates (the “Certificates”).  The offer and sale of certain classes of the Certificates (the “Registered Certificates”) will be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).  The Trust Fund will be created and the Certificates will be issued pursuant to a pooling and servicing agreement to be dated as of March 1, 2012 (the “Pooling and Servicing Agreement”), among the Purchaser, as depositor, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as master servicer (the “Master Servicer”), CWCapital Asset Management LLC, as special servicer (the “Special Servicer”), Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as certificate administrator, custodian and paying agent (in its capacity as certificate administrator, the “Certificate Administrator”), Park Bridge Lender Services LLC, as operating advisor (the “Operating Advisor”), and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”).
 
The Purchaser intends to sell the Registered Certificates to Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (“DBS”), Ladder Capital Securities LLC (“Ladder”), Guggenheim Securities, LLC (“Guggenheim”), Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC (“MS”) and RBS Securities Inc. (“RBS”  and, together with DBS, Ladder, Guggenheim and MS in such capacity, the “Underwriters”) pursuant to an underwriting agreement dated March 1, 2012 (the “Underwriting Agreement”).  The Purchaser intends to sell other Certificates (the “Non-Registered Certificates”) to DBS, Ladder and Guggenheim (together, in such capacity, the “Initial Purchasers”) pursuant to a certificate purchase agreement dated March 1, 2012 (the “Certificate Purchase Agreement”).  Capitalized terms that are used but not defined herein have the respective meanings assigned to them in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (in effect as of the Closing Date) or in the Indemnification Agreement, dated March 1, 2012 (the “Indemnification Agreement”), among the Seller, the Purchaser, the Underwriters and the Initial Purchasers.
 
Now, therefore, in consideration of the premises and the mutual agreements set forth herein, the parties agree as follows:
 
 
 

 
 
SECTION 1.          Agreement to Purchase.
 
Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, the Seller agrees to sell, assign, transfer and otherwise convey to the Purchaser upon receipt of the Mortgage Loan Purchase Price referred to in this Section 1, and the Purchaser agrees to purchase, the Mortgage Loans.  The purchase and sale of the Mortgage Loans shall take place on March 20, 2012 or such other date as shall be mutually acceptable to the parties hereto (the “Closing Date”).  As of the Cut-off Date, the Mortgage Loans will have an aggregate principal balance (the “Aggregate Cut-off Date Balance”), after application of all payments of principal due thereon on or before the Cut-off Date, whether or not received, of $418,332,854.21, subject to a variance of plus or minus 5.0%.  The purchase price of the Mortgage Loans (inclusive of accrued interest and exclusive of the Seller’s share of the costs set forth in Section 9(c) hereof) (the “Mortgage Loan Purchase Price”) shall be equal to the amount set forth on the cross receipt between the Seller and the Purchaser dated the date hereof.
 
SECTION 2.          Conveyance of Mortgage Loans.
 
(a)           On the Closing Date, subject only to receipt by the Seller of the Mortgage Loan Purchase Price, the satisfaction of the other closing conditions required to be satisfied on the part of Purchaser pursuant to Section 7 and the issuance of the Certificates, the Seller agrees to sell, transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to the Purchaser, without recourse, all the right, title and interest of the Seller from and after the Closing Date in and to the Mortgage Loans identified on the Mortgage Loan Schedule, including all rights to payment in respect thereof, which, notwithstanding the foregoing, includes all interest and principal received or receivable by the Seller on or with respect to the Mortgage Loans after the Cut-off Date (subject to the proviso in the next sentence), together with all of the Seller’s right, title and interest in and to the proceeds of any related title, hazard, or other insurance policies and any escrow, reserve or other comparable accounts related to the Mortgage Loans, subject to that certain Agreement to Appointment of Master Servicer dated as of March 1, 2012, between the Master Servicer, the Depositor and the Seller.  The Purchaser shall be entitled to (and, to the extent received by or on behalf of the Seller, the Seller shall deliver or cause to be delivered to or at the direction of the Purchaser) all scheduled payments of principal and interest due on the Mortgage Loans after the Cut-off Date, and all other recoveries of principal and interest collected thereon after the Cut-off Date; provided, however, that all scheduled payments of principal and interest due on or before the Cut-off Date and collected after the Cut-off Date shall belong to the Seller, and the Purchaser or its successors or assigns shall promptly remit any such payments to the Seller.
 
Within 45 days after the Closing Date, the Seller shall, or shall at the expense of the Seller cause a third party vendor (which may be the Trustee, Certificate Administrator or Custodian pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement or otherwise) to, (1) complete (to the extent necessary) and record (in favor of the Trustee, in trust for the Holders of Deutsche Mortgage & Asset Receiving Corporation, COMM 2012-LC4 Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates) in the appropriate public recording office (a) each Assignment of Mortgage referred to in clause (iii) of Exhibit B which has not yet been submitted for recording and (b) each Reassignment of Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits referred to in clause (viii)(B) of Exhibit B (if not otherwise included in the related Assignment of Mortgage) which has not yet been submitted for recordation; and (2) complete (to the extent necessary) and
 
 
2

 
 
file in the appropriate public filing office each UCC assignment of financing statement referred to in clause (v)(B) and (xiii) of Exhibit B which has not yet been submitted for filing or recording.  In the event that any such document or instrument is lost or returned unrecorded or unfiled, as the case may be, because of a defect therein, the Seller shall promptly prepare or cause the preparation of a substitute therefor or cure or cause the curing of such defect, as the case may be, and shall thereafter deliver the substitute or corrected document to or at the direction of the Purchaser (or any subsequent owner of the affected Mortgage Loan, including, without limitation, the Trustee) for recording or filing, as appropriate, at the Seller’s expense.  The Seller shall, or shall cause a third party vendor or any other party under its control to, promptly upon receipt of the original recorded or filed copy (and in no event later than 5 Business Days following such receipt) deliver such original to the Custodian, with evidence of filing or recording thereon.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2, in those instances where the public recording office retains the original Mortgage, Assignment of Mortgage, Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits or Reassignment of Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits, if applicable, after any has been recorded, the obligations hereunder of the Seller shall be deemed to have been satisfied upon delivery to the Custodian of a copy of the recorded original of such Mortgage, Assignment of Mortgage, Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits or Reassignment of Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits.
 
On the Closing Date, upon (i) notification from the Seller that the Mortgage Loan Purchase Price referred to in Section 1 has been received by the Seller and (ii) the issuance of the Certificates, the Purchaser shall be authorized to release to the Trustee or its designee all of the Mortgage Files in the Purchaser’s possession relating to the Mortgage Loans.
 
(b)           In connection with the Seller’s assignment pursuant to subsection (a) above, and subject to subsections (c) and (d) below, the Seller shall deliver to and deposit with, or cause to be delivered to and deposited with, the Custodian, on or before the Closing Date, the documents and/or instruments referred to in clauses (i), (ii), (vii), (xi) and (xix) of Exhibit B for each Mortgage Loan so assigned (with originals with respect to clause (i) and copies with respect to clauses (ii), (vii), (xi) and (xix)) and, except as otherwise provided in Section 2(d) below, within 30 days following the Closing Date, the remaining applicable documents in Exhibit B for each such Mortgage Loan, with copies to the Master Servicer.
 
(c)           If the Seller cannot deliver, or cause to be delivered, as to any Mortgage Loan, the original Note, the Seller shall deliver a copy or duplicate original of such Note, together with an affidavit certifying that the original thereof has been lost or destroyed and an indemnification in connection therewith in favor of the Trustee.
 
(d)           If the Seller cannot deliver, or cause to be delivered, as to any Mortgage Loan, the original or a copy of any of the documents and/or instruments referred to in clauses (ii), (v)(A), (viii)(A), (xiv) and (xvi) of Exhibit B and the UCC financing statements and UCC assignments of financing statements referred to in clause (xiii) of Exhibit B, with evidence of recording or filing thereon, solely because of a delay caused by the public recording or filing office where such document or instrument has been delivered for recordation or filing, or because such original recorded or filed document has been lost or returned from the recording or filing office and subsequently lost, as the case may be, the delivery requirements of Section 2(b) shall be deemed to have been satisfied as to such missing item, and such missing item shall be
 
 
3

 
 
deemed to have been included in the related Mortgage File, provided that a copy of such document or instrument (without evidence of recording or filing thereon, but certified (which certificate may relate to multiple documents and/or instruments) by the applicable public recording or filing office, the applicable title insurance company or by the Seller to be a true and complete copy of the original thereof submitted for recording or filing, as the case may be) has been delivered to the Custodian within 45 days after the Closing Date, and either the original of such missing document or instrument, or a copy thereof, with evidence of recording or filing, as the case may be, thereon, is delivered to or at the direction of the Purchaser (or any subsequent owner of the affected Mortgage Loan, including without limitation the Trustee) within 180 days after the Closing Date (or within such longer period after the Closing Date as the Custodian may consent to, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed so long as the Seller has provided the Custodian with evidence of such recording or filing, as the case may be, or has certified to the Custodian as to the occurrence of such recording or filing, as the case may be, and is, as certified to the Custodian no less often than quarterly, in good faith attempting to obtain from the appropriate public recording or filing office such original or copy, provided such extensions do not exceed 24 months in the aggregate).
 
If the Seller cannot deliver, or cause to be delivered, as to any Mortgage Loan, the original or a copy of the related lender’s title insurance policy referred to in clause (vii) of Exhibit B solely because such policy has not yet been issued, the delivery requirements of  Section 2(b) shall be deemed to be satisfied as to such missing item, and such missing item shall be deemed to have been included in the related Mortgage File, provided that the Seller has delivered to the Custodian a binder marked as binding and countersigned by the title insurer or its authorized agent (which may be a pro forma or specimen title insurance policy which has been accepted or approved in writing as binding by the related title insurance company) or an acknowledged closing instruction or escrow letter, and the Seller shall deliver to the Custodian or at the direction of the Purchaser (or any subsequent owner of the affected Mortgage Loan, including without limitation the Trustee), promptly following the receipt thereof, the original related lender’s title insurance policy (or a copy thereof).
 
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, with respect to the documents referred to in clause (xix) and clause (xx) on Exhibit B, the Seller acknowledges that the Master Servicer will hold the original of each such document in trust on behalf of the Trustee in order to draw on such letter of credit on behalf of the Trust and the Seller shall be deemed to have satisfied the delivery requirements of this Agreement by delivering the original of each such document to the Master Servicer.  The Seller shall pay any costs of assignment or amendment of such letter of credit required (which assignment or amendment shall change the beneficiary of the letter of credit to the Trust in care of the Master Servicer) in order for the Master Servicer to draw on such letter of credit on behalf of the Trust.  In the event that the documents specified in clause (xx) on Exhibit B are missing because the related assignment or amendment documents have not been completed, the Seller shall take all reasonably necessary steps to enable the Master Servicer to draw on the related letter of credit on behalf of the Trust including, if necessary, drawing on the letter of credit in its own name pursuant to written instructions from the Master Servicer and immediately remitting such funds (or causing such funds to be remitted) to the Master Servicer.

Contemporaneously with the execution of this Agreement by the Purchaser and the Seller, the Seller shall deliver a power of attorney substantially in the form of Exhibit C hereto to each of the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer, that permits such parties to take such other action as is necessary to effect the delivery, assignment and/or recordation of any documents and/or instruments relating to any Mortgage Loan which have not been delivered, assigned or recorded at the time required for enforcement by the Trust Fund.  The Seller will be required to effect at its expense the assignment and, if applicable, recordation of its Loan Documents until the assignment and recordation of all such Loan Documents has been completed.
 
(e)           Except as provided below, all documents and records in the Seller’s possession (or under its control) relating to the Mortgage Loans that are not required to be a part of a Mortgage File in accordance with Exhibit B but that are reasonably required to service the Mortgage Loans and copies of the documents in the Mortgage File (all such other documents and records, including Environmental Reports, as to any Mortgage Loan, the “Servicing File”), together with all escrow payments, reserve funds and other comparable funds in the possession of the Seller (or under its control) with respect to the Mortgage Loans, shall (unless they are held by a sub-servicer that shall, as of the Closing Date, begin acting on behalf of the Master Servicer pursuant to a written agreement between such parties) be delivered by the Seller (or its agent) to the Master Servicer (as the Purchaser’s designee) no later than the Closing Date; provided, however, the Seller shall not be required to deliver, and the Servicing File shall not be deemed to include drafts of Loan Documents, attorney-client or internal communications of the Seller or its affiliates or Seller’s credit underwriting or due diligence analyses or related data (as distinguished from Environmental Reports, financial statements, credit reports, title reports, structural and engineering reports, appraisals and other reports, analyses or data provided by the Borrowers or third parties other than the Seller’s attorneys).  If a sub-servicer shall, as of the Closing Date, begin acting on behalf of the Master Servicer with respect to any Mortgage Loan pursuant to a written agreement between such parties, the Seller or its agent shall deliver a copy of the related Servicing File to the Master Servicer.
 
(f)           Each of the Seller and the Purchaser will treat, and their respective records will reflect, the transfer of the Mortgage Loans to the Purchaser as a sale, including for tax and accounting purposes.  Following the transfer of the Mortgage Loans to the Purchaser, the Seller will not take any action inconsistent with the ownership of the Mortgage Loans by the Purchaser or its assignees.
 
(g)           Furthermore, it is the express intent of the parties hereto that the conveyance of the Mortgage Loans by Seller to Purchaser as provided in this Agreement be, and be construed as, a sale of the Mortgage Loans by Seller to Purchaser and not a pledge of the Mortgage Loans by Seller to Purchaser to secure a debt or other obligation of Seller.  However, in the event that, notwithstanding the intent of the parties, the Mortgage Loans are held to be property of Seller or if for any reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create a security interest in the Mortgage Loans:
 
(i)           this Agreement shall hereby create a security agreement within the meaning of Articles 8 and 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code in effect in the applicable state;
 
 
5

 
 
(ii)          the conveyance provided for in this Agreement shall hereby grant from Seller to Purchaser a security interest in and to all of Seller’s right, title, and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to:
 
(A)           all accounts, contract rights (including any guarantees), general intangibles, chattel paper, instruments, documents, money, deposit accounts, certificates of deposit, goods, letters of credit, advices of credit and investment property consisting of, arising from or relating to any of the property described in the Mortgage Loans, including the related Notes, Mortgages and title, hazard and other insurance policies, identified on the Mortgage Loan Schedule, and all distributions with respect thereto payable after the Cut-off Date;
 
(B)           all accounts, contract rights, general intangibles, chattel paper, instruments, documents, money, deposit accounts, certificates of deposit, goods, letters of credit, advices of credit and investment property arising from or by virtue of the disposition of, or collections with respect to, or insurance proceeds payable with respect to, or claims against other Persons with respect to, all or any part of the collateral described in clause (A) above (including any accrued discount realized on liquidation of any investment purchased at a discount), in each case, payable after the Cut-off Date; and
 
(C)           all cash and non-cash proceeds of the collateral described in clauses (A) and (B) above payable after the Cut-off Date;
 
(iii)         the possession by Purchaser or its assignee of the Notes and such other goods, letters of credit, advices of credit, instruments, money, documents, chattel paper or certificated securities shall be deemed to be possession by the secured party or possession by a purchaser or a Person designated by him or her, for purposes of perfecting the security interest pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code (including, without limitation, Sections 9-306, 9-313 and 9-314 thereof) as in force in the relevant jurisdiction; and
 
(iv)          notifications to Persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts, confirmations from Persons holding such property, shall be deemed to be notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, securities intermediaries, bailees or agents of, or Persons holding for (as applicable), Purchaser or its assignee for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law.
 
The Seller at the direction of the Purchaser or its assignee, shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such actions as may be reasonably necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were deemed to create a security interest in the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof, such security interest would be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of this Agreement.  In connection herewith, Purchaser and its assignee shall have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party and creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code as in force in the relevant jurisdiction and may execute and file such UCC Financing Statements as may be reasonably necessary or appropriate to accomplish the foregoing.
 
 
6

 
 
(h)           It is further acknowledged and agreed by the Seller that the Purchaser intends to convey all right, title and interest of the Purchaser from and after the Closing Date in and to the Mortgage Loans and all rights and remedies under this Agreement (excluding the Purchaser’s rights and remedies under Sections 6(e)-(g), 9 and 11 of this Agreement) to the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders, including, without limitation, all rights and remedies as may be available under Section 6 to the Purchaser in the event of a Material Breach or a Material Defect, and the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders, as assignee of the Purchaser, or such other party as may be specified in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, shall be entitled to enforce any obligations of the Seller hereunder in connection with a Material Breach or a Material Defect as if the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders had been an original party to this Agreement.
 
SECTION 3.          Examination of Mortgage Files and Due Diligence Review.
 
The Seller shall reasonably cooperate with any examination of the Mortgage Files and Servicing Files that may be undertaken by or on behalf of the Purchaser.  The fact that the Purchaser has conducted or has failed to conduct any partial or complete examination of the Mortgage Files and/or Servicing Files shall not affect the Purchaser’s right to pursue any remedy available in equity or at law under Section 6 for a breach of the Seller’s representations, warranties and covenants set forth in or contemplated by Section 4.
 
SECTION 4.          Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Seller.

(ii)           The execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Seller, and the performance of, and compliance with, the terms of this Agreement by the Seller, do not violate the Seller’s organizational documents or constitute a default (or an event which, with notice or lapse of time, or both, would constitute a default) under, or result in the breach of, any material agreement or other instrument to which it is a party or which is applicable to it or any of its assets, in each case which materially and adversely affects the ability of the Seller to carry out the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

(vii)       The Seller has not dealt with any broker, investment banker, agent or other Person, other than the Purchaser, the Underwriters, the Initial Purchasers, and their respective affiliates, that may be entitled to any commission or compensation in connection with the sale of the Mortgage Loans or the consummation of any of the other transactions contemplated hereby.

SECTION 6.         Repurchases; Substitutions.
 
(a)           If the Purchaser discovers that any document constituting a part of a Mortgage File has not been delivered within the time periods provided for herein, has not been properly executed, is missing, does not appear to be regular on its face or contains information that does not conform in any material respect with the corresponding information set forth in the Mortgage Loan Schedule (each, a “Defect”), or discovers or receives notice of a breach of any representation or warranty of the Seller made pursuant to Section 4(a) of this Agreement with respect to any Mortgage Loan (a “Breach”), and if such Defect is a Material Defect or such Breach is a Material Breach, then the Purchaser (or, following the assignment of the Mortgage Loans to the Trust Fund, the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Trustee, the Certificate Administrator, the Operating Advisor or the Custodian, on behalf of the Trust Fund) shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Seller.  If any such Defect or Breach materially and adversely affects the value of any Mortgage Loan, the value of the related Mortgaged Property or the interests in such Mortgage Loan or Mortgaged Property of the Purchaser, then such Defect shall constitute a “Material Defect” or such Breach shall constitute a “Material Breach,” as the case may be; provided, however, that if any of the documents specified in clauses (i), (ii), (vii),

(xi) and (xix) of the definition of “Mortgage File” is (subject to Sections 2(c) and 2(d) hereof) not delivered, and is certified as missing pursuant to Section 2.02 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, it shall be deemed a Material Defect.  Promptly upon receiving written notice of any Material Defect or Material Breach with respect to a Mortgage Loan, accompanied by a written demand to take the actions contemplated by this sentence, the Seller shall, not later than 90 days from the Seller’s receipt from the Purchaser (or, following the assignment of the Mortgage Loans to the Trust Fund, the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Trustee, the Certificate Administrator, the Operating Advisor or the Custodian, on behalf of the Trust Fund) of notice of, and demand to take action with respect to, such Material Defect or Material Breach, as the case may be (or, in the case of a Material Defect or Material Breach relating to a Mortgage Loan not being a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of the REMIC Provisions, not later than 90 days after the Seller or any party to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement discovers such Material Defect or Material Breach) (any such 90-day period, the “Initial Resolution Period”), (i) cure the same in all material respects, (ii) repurchase the affected Mortgage Loan at the applicable Repurchase Price or (iii) substitute a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan for such affected Mortgage Loan (provided that in no event shall such substitution occur later than the second anniversary of the Closing Date) and pay to the Master Servicer for deposit into the Collection Account any Substitution Shortfall Amount in connection therewith; provided that if (i) such Material Defect or Material Breach (other than one relating to a deemed Material Defect under the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence) is capable of being cured but not within the Initial Resolution Period, (ii) such Material Defect or Material Breach is not related to any Mortgage Loan’s not being a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of the REMIC Provisions and (iii) the Seller has commenced and is diligently proceeding with the cure of such Material Defect or Material Breach within the Initial Resolution Period, then the Seller shall have an additional period equal to the applicable Resolution Extension Period to complete such cure or, failing such cure, to repurchase the Mortgage Loan or substitute a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Mortgage Loan is not secured by a hotel, restaurant (operated by a Borrower), healthcare facility, nursing home, assisted living facility, self-storage facility, theatre or fitness center (operated by a Borrower) property, then the failure to deliver to the Trustee copies of the UCC financing statements with respect to such Mortgage Loan shall not be a Material Defect.
 
If the Seller is notified of a Defect in any Mortgage File that also affects information set forth in the Mortgage Loan Schedule, the Seller shall promptly correct such Defect and provide a new, corrected Mortgage Loan Schedule to the Purchaser, which corrected Mortgage Loan Schedule shall be deemed to amend and replace the existing Mortgage Loan Schedule for all purposes.  The failure of the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Operating Advisor, the Certificate Administrator or the Trustee to notify the Seller of a Material Defect or Material Breach shall not constitute a waiver of any cure or repurchase obligation, provided that the Seller must receive written notice thereof as described in this Section 6(a) before commencement of the Initial Resolution Period.
 
If (x) there exists a Breach of any representation or warranty on the part of the Seller as set forth in, or made pursuant to, representation 36 or 37 of Exhibit D to this Agreement relating to fees and expenses payable by the Borrower associated with the exercise of a defeasance option, a waiver of a “due-on-sale” provision or a “due-on-encumbrance” provision or the release of any Mortgaged Property, and (y) the related Loan Documents specifically
 
 
11

 
 
prohibit the Master Servicer or Special Servicer from requiring the related Borrower to pay such fees and expenses, then, upon notice by the Master Servicer or Special Servicer, the Seller may cure such breach by transferring to the Collection Account, within 90 days of the Seller’s receipt of such notice, the amount of any such fees and expenses borne by the Trust Fund that are the basis of such Breach. Upon its making such deposit, the Seller shall be deemed to have cured such Breach in all respects.  Provided such payment is made, this paragraph describes the sole remedy available to the Purchaser and its assignees regarding any such Breach, regardless of whether it constitutes a Material Breach, and the Seller shall not be obligated to repurchase or otherwise cure such Breach.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 6(a), in lieu of the Seller performing its obligations with respect to any Material Breach or Material Defect provided in the three preceding paragraphs, to the extent that the Seller and the Purchaser (or, following the assignment of the Mortgage Loans to the Trust Fund, the Special Servicer on behalf of the Trust Fund, and, if no Control Termination Event has occurred and is continuing, with the consent of the Controlling Class Representative) are able to agree upon a cash payment payable by the Seller to the Purchaser that would be deemed sufficient to compensate the Purchaser for a Material Breach or Material Defect (a “Loss of Value Payment”), the Seller may elect, in its sole discretion, to pay such Loss of Value Payment to the Purchaser; provided that a Material Defect or a Material Breach as a result of a Mortgage Loan not constituting a “qualified mortgage”, within the meaning of Code Section 860G(a)(3), may not be cured by a Loss of Value Payment.  Upon its making such payment, the Seller shall be deemed to have cured such Material Breach or Material Defect in all respects.  Provided such payment is made, this paragraph describes the sole remedy available to the Purchaser and its assignees regarding any such Material Breach or Material Defect, and the Seller shall not be obligated to repurchase or otherwise cure such Material Breach or Material Defect.
 
(b)          In connection with any repurchase of, or substitution for, a Mortgage Loan contemplated by this Section 6:
 
(i)          the Trustee, the Master Servicer (with respect to any such Mortgage Loan other than a Specially Serviced Loan) and the Special Servicer (with respect to any such Mortgage Loan that is a Specially Serviced Loan), pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, shall each be required to tender to the Seller, and the Seller shall be entitled to receive therefrom, all portions of the Mortgage File and other documents pertaining to such Mortgage Loan possessed by it, upon delivery:
 
(A)            to the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer, as applicable, of a trust receipt, and
 
(B)            to the Trustee by the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer, as applicable, of a Request for Release and an acknowledgement by the Master Servicer or Special Servicer, as applicable, of its receipt of the Repurchase Price or the Substitution Shortfall Amount from the Seller;
 
(ii)         each document that constitutes a part of the Mortgage File that was endorsed or assigned to the Trustee shall be endorsed or assigned without recourse in the
 
 
12

 
 
form of endorsement or assignment provided to the Trustee by the Seller, as the case may be, to the Seller as shall be necessary to vest in the Seller the legal and beneficial ownership of each Removed Mortgage Loan to the extent such ownership was transferred to the Trustee; and
 
(iii)         the Trustee, the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer shall release, or cause the release of, any escrow payments and reserve funds held by or on behalf of the Trustee, the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer, as the case may be, in respect of such Removed Mortgage Loan(s) to the Seller.
 
(c)           This Section 6 provides the sole remedies available to the Purchaser, and its successors and permitted assigns (i.e., the Trustee and the holders of the Certificates) in respect of any Defect in a Mortgage File or any Breach.  If the Seller defaults on its obligations to cure, to repurchase, or to substitute for, any Mortgage Loan in accordance with this Section 6, or disputes its obligation to cure, to repurchase, or to substitute for, any Mortgage Loan in accordance with Section 6, the Purchaser may take such action as is appropriate to enforce such payment or performance, including, without limitation, the institution and prosecution of appropriate proceedings.  To the extent the Purchaser prevails in such proceeding, the Seller shall reimburse the Purchaser for all necessary and reasonable costs and expenses incurred in connection with the enforcement of such obligation of the Seller to cure, to repurchase, or to substitute for, any Mortgage Loan in accordance with this Section 6.  To the extent the Seller prevails in such proceeding, the Purchaser shall reimburse the Seller for all necessary and reasonable costs and expenses incurred in connection with such proceeding.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if there is a Material Breach or Material Defect with respect to one or more Mortgaged Properties securing a Mortgage Loan, the Seller will not be obligated to repurchase the Mortgage Loan if (i) the affected Mortgaged Property may be released pursuant to the terms of any partial release provisions in the related Loan Documents (and such Mortgaged Property is, in fact, released), (ii) the remaining Mortgaged Property(ies) satisfy the requirements, if any, set forth in the Loan Documents and the Seller provides an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such release would not cause an Adverse REMIC Event to occur and (iii) each Rating Agency then rating the Certificates shall have provided a No Downgrade Confirmation with respect to such release.
 
(d)           As to any Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan, at the direction of the Trustee, the Seller shall deliver to the Custodian for such Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan (with a copy to the Master Servicer), the related Mortgage File with the related Note endorsed as required by Exhibit B hereto.  Pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, Monthly Payments due with respect to Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loans in or prior to the month of substitution shall not be part of the Trust Fund and, if received by the Master Servicer, shall be remitted by the Master Servicer to the related Seller on the next succeeding Distribution Date.  For the month of repurchase or substitution, distributions to Certificateholders pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement will include the Monthly Payment(s) due on the related Removed Mortgage Loan and received by the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer on behalf of the Trust on or prior to the related date of repurchase or substitution, as applicable, and the Seller shall be entitled to retain all amounts received thereafter in respect of such Removed Mortgage Loan.
 
 
13

 
 
In any month in which the Seller substitutes one or more Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loans for one or more Removed Mortgage Loans, pursuant to this Agreement, the Master Servicer will determine the applicable Substitution Shortfall Amount.  At the direction of the Certificate Administrator, the Seller shall deposit, or deliver to the Master Servicer for deposit, into the Collection Account cash equal to such amount concurrently with the delivery of the Mortgage Files for such Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loans, without any reimbursement thereof.  Any Mortgage Loan that is repurchased or replaced by the Seller pursuant to this Section 6 shall constitute a “Removed Mortgage Loan”.
 
(e)           If the Seller (i) receives from any Person (other than the Depositor) any Repurchase Communication of a Repurchase Request; (ii) rejects any Repurchase Request or is in dispute with the Person making any Repurchase Request as to the merits of such Repurchase Request (a “Dispute”); or (iii) receives a Repurchase Communication of a Repurchase Request Withdrawal, then the Seller shall deliver notice thereof (each, a “15Ga-1 Notice”) to the Depositor within ten Business Days of the Seller’s receipt thereof (or in the case of a rejection or Dispute, the occurrence thereof).  Each 15Ga-1 Notice shall include (i) the identity of the related Mortgage Loan, (ii) the date the Repurchase Communication of the Repurchase Request or the Repurchase Request Withdrawal was received, as applicable, and (iii) in the case of a Repurchase Request, the identity of the Person making such Repurchase Request and, if known, the basis for the Repurchase Request (as asserted in the Repurchase Request).
 
Repurchase Communication” means, for purposes of this Section 6(e) only, any communication, whether oral or written, which need not be in any specific form.
 
(f)           The Seller shall provide to the Depositor relevant portions of any Form ABS-15G that the Seller is required to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (only to the extent that such portions relate to any Mortgage Loan) on or before the date that is five (5) Business Days before the date such Form ABS-15G is required to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  In connection with such filing, upon the request of the Seller, the Depositor shall provide to the Seller the Trust Fund’s Central Index Key (CIK) number and such other information regarding the principal balances of the Mortgage Loans as is reasonably necessary for the Seller to complete and file such Form ABS-15G.
 
(g)           The Seller agrees that a 15Ga-1 Notice Provider will not, in connection with providing the Seller with any 15Ga-1 Notice (for purposes of this Section 6(g) only, as defined in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement), be required to provide any information protected by the attorney-client privilege or attorney work product doctrines.  In addition, the Seller hereby acknowledges that (i) any 15Ga-1 Notice provided pursuant to Section 2.03(d) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement is so provided only to assist the Seller, the Depositor and its Affiliates to comply with Rule 15Ga-1 under the Exchange Act, Items 1104 and 1121 of Regulation AB and any other requirement of law or regulation and (ii) (A) no action taken by, or inaction of, a 15Ga-1 Notice Provider and (B) no information provided pursuant to Section 2.03(d) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement by a 15Ga-1 Notice Provider, shall be deemed to constitute a waiver or defense to the exercise of any legal right the 15Ga-1 Notice Provider may have with respect to this Agreement, including with respect to any Repurchase Request that is the subject of a 15Ga-1 Notice.
 
 
14

 
 
(h)           Each party hereto agrees that the receipt of a 15Ga-1 Notice or the delivery of any notice required to be delivered pursuant to this Section 6 shall not, in and of itself, constitute delivery of notice of, receipt of notice of, or knowledge of the Seller of, any Material Defect or Material Breach.
 
SECTION 7.          Closing.
 
The closing of the purchase and sale of the Mortgage Loans (the “Closing”) shall be held at the offices of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, One World Financial Center, New York, New York 10281 at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the Closing Date.

(vi)        The Seller shall have received the Mortgage Loan Purchase Price, and the Seller shall have paid or agreed to pay all fees, costs and expenses payable by it to the Purchaser as of the Closing Date pursuant to this Agreement; and

MORTGAGE LOAN REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
 
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE SELLER
REGARDING THE INDIVIDUAL MORTGAGE LOANS
 
With respect to each Mortgage Loan, the Seller hereby represents and warrants, as of the date herein specified or, if no such date is specified, as of the Closing Date, except as set forth on Schedule D-1 hereto, that:
 
1)           Payment Record.  No Mortgage Loan is 30 days or more delinquent in payment of principal and interest (without giving effect to any applicable grace period in the related Note) and no Mortgage Loan has been 30 days or more (without giving effect to any applicable grace period in the related Note) past due.
 
2)           Fixed Rate Loan.  Each Mortgage Loan (exclusive of any default interest, late charges or prepayment premiums) is a fixed rate mortgage loan with a term to maturity, at origination or as of the most recent modification, as set forth in the Mortgage Loan Schedule.
 
3)           Mortgage Loan Schedule.  The information pertaining to each Mortgage Loan set forth on the Mortgage Loan Schedule is true and correct in all material respects as of the Cut-off Date.
 
4)           Ownership of Mortgage Loan.  At the time of the assignment of the Mortgage Loans to the Purchaser, the Seller had good and marketable title to and was the sole owner and holder of, each Mortgage Loan, free and clear of any pledge, lien, encumbrance or security interest (subject to certain agreements regarding servicing as provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, any subservicing agreements permitted thereunder and that certain Servicing Rights Purchase Agreement, dated as of the Closing Date between the Master Servicer and the Seller) and such assignment validly and effectively transfers and conveys all legal and beneficial ownership of the Mortgage Loans to the Purchaser free and clear of any pledge, lien, encumbrance or security interest (subject to certain agreements regarding servicing as provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, any subservicing agreements permitted thereunder and that certain Servicing Rights Purchase Agreement, dated as of the Closing Date between the Master Servicer and the Seller).
 
5)           Borrower; Bankruptcy.  In respect of each Mortgage Loan, as of the origination date and, to the Seller’s actual knowledge, as of the Closing Date, (A) in reliance on public documents or certified copies of the incorporation or partnership or other entity documents, as applicable, delivered in connection with the origination of such Mortgage Loan, the related Borrower is an entity organized under the laws of a state of the United States of America, the District of Columbia or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and (B) the related Borrower is not a debtor in any bankruptcy, receivership, conservatorship, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or similar proceeding.
 
 
D-1

 
 
6)           Mortgage Lien; Assignment of Leases.  Each Mortgage Loan is secured by the related Mortgage which establishes and creates a valid and subsisting first priority lien on the related Mortgaged Property, or leasehold interest therein, comprising real estate, free and clear of any liens, claims, encumbrances, participation interests, pledges, charges or security interests subject only to Permitted Encumbrances.  Such Mortgage, together with any separate security agreement, UCC Financing Statement or similar agreement, if any, establishes and creates a first priority security interest in favor of the Seller in all personal property owned by the Borrower that is used in, and is reasonably necessary to, the operation of the related Mortgaged Property and, to the extent a security interest may be created therein and perfected by the filing of a UCC Financing Statement under the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect in the relevant jurisdiction, the proceeds arising from the Mortgaged Property and other collateral securing such Mortgage Loan, subject only to Permitted Encumbrances.  There exists with respect to such Mortgaged Property an assignment of leases and rents provision, either as part of the related Mortgage or as a separate document or instrument, which establishes and creates a first priority security interest in and to leases and rents arising in respect of the related Mortgaged Property, subject only to Permitted Encumbrances.  To the Seller’s knowledge, no Person other than the related Borrower and the mortgagee own any interest in any payments due under the related leases.  The related Mortgage or such assignment of leases and rents provision provides for the appointment of a receiver for rents or allows the holder of the related Mortgage to enter into possession of the related Mortgaged Property to collect rent or provides for rents to be paid directly to the holder of the related Mortgage in the event of a default beyond applicable notice and grace periods, if any, under the related Loan Documents.  As of the origination date, there were, and, to the Seller’s knowledge as of the Closing Date, there are, no mechanics’ or other similar liens or claims which have been filed for work, labor or materials affecting the related Mortgaged Property which are or may be prior or equal to the lien of the Mortgage, except those that are bonded or escrowed for or which are insured against pursuant to the applicable Title Insurance Policy (as defined below) and except for Permitted Encumbrances.  No Mortgaged Property secures any mortgage loan not represented on the Mortgage Loan Schedule.  No Mortgage Loan is cross-collateralized or cross-defaulted with any other mortgage loan, other than a Mortgage Loan listed on the Mortgage Loan Schedule.  No Mortgage Loan is secured by property that is not a Mortgaged Property.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no representation is made as to the perfection of any security interest in rent, operating revenues or other personal property to the extent that possession or control of such items or actions other than the recordation of the Mortgage or the Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits or the filing of UCC Financing Statements are required in order to effect such perfection.
 
7)           Title.  The related Borrower under each Mortgage Loan has good and indefeasible fee simple or, if representation (25) hereof is applicable to such Mortgage Loan, leasehold title to the related Mortgaged Property comprising real estate, subject to Permitted Encumbrances, if any.
 
8)           Title Insurance.  The Seller has received an American Land Title Association (ALTA) lender’s title insurance policy or a comparable form of lender’s title insurance policy (or escrow instructions binding on the Title Insurer (as defined below)
 
 
D-2

 
 
and irrevocably obligating the Title Insurer to issue such title insurance policy or a title policy commitment or pro-forma “marked up” at the closing of the related Mortgage Loan and countersigned or otherwise approved by the Title Insurer or its authorized agent) as adopted in the applicable jurisdiction (the “Title Insurance Policy”), which was issued by a nationally recognized title insurance company (the “Title Insurer”) qualified to do business in the jurisdiction where the applicable Mortgaged Property is located (unless such jurisdiction is the State of Iowa), covering the portion of each Mortgaged Property comprised of real estate and insuring that the related Mortgage is a valid first lien in the original principal amount of the related Mortgage Loan on the Borrower’s fee simple interest (or, if applicable, leasehold interest) in such Mortgaged Property comprised of real estate, subject only to Permitted Encumbrances.  Such Title Insurance Policy was issued in connection with the origination of the related Mortgage Loan. No claims have been made under such Title Insurance Policy.  Such Title Insurance Policy is in full force and effect and all premiums thereon have been paid and will provide that the insured includes the owner of the Mortgage Loan and its successors and/or assigns. No holder of the related Mortgage has done, by act or omission, anything that would, and the Seller has no actual knowledge of any other circumstance that would, impair the coverage under such Title Insurance Policy.  Such Title Insurance Policy contains no exception regarding the encroachment upon any material easements of any material permanent improvements located at the Mortgaged Property for which the grantee of such easement has the ability to force removal of such improvement, or such Title Insurance Policy affirmatively insures (unless the related Mortgaged Property is located in a jurisdiction where such affirmative insurance is not available) against losses caused by forced removal of any material permanent improvements on the related Mortgaged Property that encroach upon any material easements.
 
9)           Valid Assignment.  The related Assignment of Mortgage and the related assignment of the Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits executed in connection with each Mortgage, if any, have been recorded in the applicable jurisdiction (or, if not recorded, have been submitted for recording or are in recordable form (but for the insertion of the name and address of the assignee and any related recording information which is not yet available to the Seller)) and constitute the legal, valid and binding assignment of such Mortgage and the related Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits from the Seller to the Purchaser.  The endorsement of the related Note by the Seller constitutes the legal, valid, binding and enforceable (except as such enforcement may be limited by anti-deficiency laws or bankruptcy, receivership, conservatorship, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law)) assignment of such Note, and together with such Assignment of Mortgage and the related assignment of Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits, legally and validly conveys all right, title and interest in such Mortgage Loan and Loan Documents to the Purchaser.
 
10)           Nonrecourse.  The Loan Documents for each Mortgage Loan provide that such Mortgage Loan is non-recourse to the related parties thereto except that the related Borrower and at least one individual or entity shall be fully liable for actual losses, liabilities, costs and damages arising from certain acts of the related Borrower and/or its
 
 
D-3

 
 
principals specified in the related Loan Documents, which acts generally include the following: (i) acts of fraud or intentional material misrepresentation, (ii) misapplication or misappropriation of rents, insurance proceeds or condemnation awards, (iii)  material physical waste of the Mortgaged Property, and (iv) any breach of the environmental covenants contained in the related Loan Documents.
 
11)           Mortgage Provisions.  The Loan Documents for each Mortgage Loan contain enforceable provisions such as to render the rights and remedies of the holder thereof adequate for the practical realization against the Mortgaged Property of the principal benefits of the security intended to be provided thereby, including realization by judicial or, if applicable, non-judicial foreclosure, and there is no exemption available to the related Borrower which would interfere with such right of foreclosure except any statutory right of redemption or as may be limited by anti-deficiency or one form of action laws or by bankruptcy, receivership, conservatorship, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).
 
12)           Enforceability.  Each of the related Notes and Mortgages are the legal, valid and binding obligations of the related Borrower named on the Mortgage Loan Schedule and each of the other related Loan Documents is the legal, valid and binding obligation of the parties thereto (subject to any non-recourse provisions therein), enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be limited by anti-deficiency or one form of action laws or bankruptcy, receivership, conservatorship, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law), and except that certain provisions of such Loan Documents are or may be unenforceable in whole or in part under applicable state or federal laws, but the inclusion of such provisions does not render any of the Loan Documents invalid as a whole, and such Loan Documents taken as a whole are enforceable to the extent necessary and customary for the practical realization of the principal rights and benefits afforded thereby.
 
13)           Modifications.  Neither the terms of the Mortgage Loans nor the related Loan Documents have been altered, impaired, modified or waived in any material respect, except prior to the Cut-off Date by written instrument duly submitted for recordation, to the extent required, and as specifically set forth in the related Mortgage File and posted on the website or otherwise made available to the Controlling Class Representative, and no such alterations, impairments, modifications, or waivers have been completed or consented to after the Cut-off Date.
 
14)           Deed of Trust.  With respect to each Mortgage which is a deed of trust, a trustee, duly qualified under applicable law to serve as such, currently so serves and is named in the deed of trust or may be substituted in accordance with applicable law, and no fees or expenses are or will become payable to the trustee under the deed of trust, except in connection with a trustee’s sale after default by the Borrower and fees paid in
 
 
D-4

iii)           such Ground Lease or other agreement provides that upon foreclosure of the related Mortgage or assignment of the Borrower’s interest in such Ground Lease in lieu thereof, the mortgagee under such Mortgage is entitled to become the owner of such interest upon notice to, but without the consent of, the lessor thereunder and, in the event that such mortgagee (or any of its successors and assigns under the Mortgage) becomes the owner of such interest, such interest is further assignable by such mortgagee (or any of its successors and

iv)           such Ground Lease is in full force and effect and no default of tenant or ground lessor was in existence at origination, or to the Seller’s knowledge, is in existence as of the Closing Date, under such Ground Lease, nor at origination was, or to the Seller’s knowledge, is there any condition which, but for the passage of time or the giving of notice, would result in a default under the terms of such Ground Lease; either such Ground Lease or a separate agreement contains the ground lessor’s covenant that it shall not amend, modify, cancel or terminate such Ground Lease without the prior written consent of the mortgagee under such Mortgage and any amendment, modification, cancellation or termination of the Ground Lease without the prior written consent of the related mortgagee, or its successors or assigns is not binding on such mortgagee, or its successor or assigns;
 
v)           such Ground Lease or other agreement requires the lessor thereunder to give written notice of any material default by the lessee to the mortgagee under the related Mortgage, provided that such mortgagee has provided the lessor with notice of its lien in accordance with the provisions of such Ground Lease; and such Ground Lease or other agreement provides that no such notice of default and no termination of the Ground Lease in connection with such notice of default shall be effective against such mortgagee unless such notice of default has been given to such mortgagee and any related Ground Lease or other agreement contains the ground lessor’s covenant that it will give to the related mortgagee, or its successors or assigns, any notices it sends to the Borrower;

viii)           under the terms of such Ground Lease and the related Mortgage, taken together, any related insurance proceeds will be applied either to the repair or restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property, with the mortgagee under such Mortgage or a financially responsible institution acting as trustee appointed by it, or consented to by it, or by the lessor having the right to hold and disburse such proceeds as the repair or restoration progresses (except in such cases where a provision entitling another party to hold and disburse such proceeds would not be viewed as commercially unreasonable by a prudent commercial mortgage lender), or to the payment in whole or in part of the outstanding principal balance of such Mortgage Loan, together with any accrued and unpaid interest thereon; and
 
ix)           such Ground Lease does not impose any restrictions on subletting which would be viewed as commercially unreasonable by the Seller; such Ground Lease contains a covenant (or applicable laws provide) that the lessor thereunder is not permitted, in the absence of an uncured default, to disturb the possession, interest or quiet enjoyment of any lessee in the relevant portion of such Mortgaged Property subject to such Ground Lease for any reason, or in any manner, which would materially adversely affect the security provided by the related Mortgage.

ii)            To the Seller’s actual knowledge and in reliance upon the Environmental Site Assessment, except for any Hazardous Materials being handled in accordance with applicable Environmental Laws and except for any Hazardous Materials present at such Mortgaged Property for which, to the extent that an Environmental Site Assessment recommends remediation or other action, (A) there is either (i) environmental insurance with respect to such Mortgaged Property (as set forth on Annex A hereto) or (ii) an amount in an escrow account pledged as security for such Mortgage Loan under the relevant Loan Documents equal to no less than 125% of the amount estimated in such Environmental Site Assessment as sufficient to pay the cost of such remediation or other action in accordance with such Environmental Site Assessment or (B) one of the statements set forth in representation (26)(i) above is true, (1) such Mortgaged Property is not being used for the treatment or disposal of Hazardous Materials; (2) no Hazardous Materials are being used or stored or generated for off-site disposal or otherwise present at such Mortgaged Property other than Hazardous Materials of such types and in such quantities as are customarily used or stored or generated for off-site disposal or otherwise present in or at properties of the relevant property type; and (3) such Mortgaged Property is not subject to any environmental hazard (including, without limitation, any situation involving Hazardous Materials) which under the Environmental Laws would have to be eliminated before the sale of, or which could otherwise reasonably be expected to adversely affect in more than a de minimis manner the value or marketability of, such Mortgaged Property.
 
 
D-11

 
 
iii)           The related Mortgage or other Loan Documents contain covenants on the part of the related Borrower requiring its compliance with any present or future federal, state and local Environmental Laws and regulations in connection with the Mortgaged Property.  The related Borrower (or an affiliate thereof) has agreed to indemnify, defend and hold the Seller, and its successors and assigns, harmless from and against any and all losses, liabilities, damages, penalties, fines, expenses and claims of whatever kind or nature (including attorneys’ fees and costs) imposed upon or incurred by or asserted against any such party resulting from a breach of the environmental representations, warranties or covenants given by the related Borrower in connection with such Mortgage Loan.
 
iv)           Each of the Mortgage Loans covered by a lender’s environmental insurance policy obtained in lieu of an Environmental Site Assessment (“In Lieu of Policy”) is identified on Annex A hereto and has a term ending no sooner than the date which is two years after the maturity date of the related Mortgage Loan, is non-cancelable by the insurer during such term and the premium for such policy has been paid in full.  All environmental assessments or updates that were in the possession of the Seller and that relate to a Mortgaged Property identified on Annex A hereto as being insured by an In Lieu of Policy have been delivered to or disclosed to the In Lieu of Policy carrier issuing such policy prior to the issuance of such policy.
 
27)           Insurance.  As of the date of origination of the related Mortgage Loan, and, as of the Closing Date, the Mortgaged Property is covered by insurance policies providing the coverage described below and the Loan Documents permit the mortgagee to require the coverage described below.  All premiums with respect to the insurance policies insuring each Mortgaged Property have been paid in a timely manner or escrowed to the extent required by the Loan Documents, and the Seller has not received (1) any notice of non-payment of premiums that has not been cured in a timely manner by the related Borrower or (2) any notice of cancellation or termination of such insurance policies.  The relevant Servicing File contains the insurance policy required for such Mortgage Loan or a certificate of insurance for such insurance policy.  Each Mortgage or Loan Agreement requires that the related Mortgaged Property and all improvements thereon are covered by insurance policies providing (a) coverage in an amount at least equal to the lesser of full replacement cost of such Mortgaged Property and the outstanding principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan (subject to customary deductibles) for losses sustained by fire and for losses or damages from other risks and hazards covered by a standard extended coverage insurance policy providing “special form” coverage in an amount sufficient to prevent the Borrower from being deemed a co-insurer and to provide coverage on a full replacement cost basis of such Mortgaged Property (in some cases, full replacement excludes excavations, underground utilities, foundations and footings) with an agreed amount endorsement to avoid application of any coinsurance provision; such policy contains a standard mortgagee clause naming the mortgagee and its successor in interest as additional insureds or loss payee, as applicable; and such policy contains no provisions for a deduction for depreciation, except that the policy may permit a deduction for depreciation in connection with a cash settlement after a casualty if the insurance proceeds are not being applied to rebuild or repair the damaged
 
 
D-12

 
 
improvements; (b) business interruption or rental loss insurance in an amount at least equal to (i) 12 months of operations or (ii) in some cases all rents and other amounts customarily insured under this type of insurance of the Mortgaged Property; (c) flood insurance, if any portion of the improvements, exclusive of a parking lot, on the Mortgaged Property is located in an area identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, with respect to certain Mortgage Loans, or the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, with respect to other Mortgage Loans, as having special flood hazards, to the extent flood insurance is available; (d) workers’ compensation, if required by law; and (e) comprehensive general liability insurance in an amount not less than $1 million.  All such insurance policies referred to in the prior sentence that are currently in place contain clauses providing they are not terminable and may not be terminated without thirty (30) days prior written notice to the mortgagee (except where applicable law requires a shorter period or except for nonpayment of premiums, in which case not less than ten (10) days prior written notice to the mortgagee is required).  In addition, each Mortgage and/or Loan Agreement permits the related mortgagee to make premium payments to prevent the cancellation of such insurance policies with respect to the Mortgaged Property and shall entitle such mortgagee to reimbursement therefor.  Any insurance proceeds in respect of a casualty loss or taking will be applied either to the repair or restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property or the payment of the outstanding principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan together with any accrued interest thereon.  If the Mortgaged Property is located within 25 miles of the coast of the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic coast of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina or North Carolina, such Mortgaged Property is insured by windstorm insurance in an amount at least equal to the lesser of (i) the outstanding principal balance of such Mortgage Loan, and (ii) 100% of the full insurable value, or 100% of the replacement cost, of the improvements located on the related Mortgaged Property.  The related Mortgaged Property is insured by an insurance policy, issued by an insurer meeting the requirements of such Mortgage Loan and having a claims-paying or financial strength rating of at least “A-:V” from A.M. Best Company or “A-” (or the equivalent) from Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services, Fitch, Inc. or Moody’s Investors Service, Inc.  An architectural or engineering consultant has performed an analysis of each of the Mortgaged Properties located in seismic zones 3 or 4 in order to evaluate the structural and seismic condition of such property, for the sole purpose of assessing the probable maximum loss (“PML”) for the Mortgaged Property in the event of an earthquake.  In such instance, the PML was based on a 450 or 475 year return period, an exposure period of 50 years and a 10% probability of exceedance.  If the resulting report concluded that the PML would exceed 20% of the amount of the replacement costs of the improvements, earthquake insurance for such Mortgaged Property was obtained from an insurer rated at least “A-:V” by A.M. Best Company or “A-” (or the equivalent) from Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services, Fitch, Inc. or Moody’s Investors Service, Inc.  To the Seller’s actual knowledge, the insurer issuing each of the foregoing insurance policies is qualified to write insurance in the jurisdiction where the related Mortgaged Property is located.
 
28)           Escrows.  All amounts required to be deposited by each Borrower at origination under the related Loan Documents have been deposited or have been withheld from the related Mortgage Loan proceeds at origination and there are no deficiencies with

29)           Litigation.  To the Seller’s knowledge, with respect to each Mortgage Loan, as of the date of origination of such Mortgage Loan, and, to the Seller’s actual knowledge, with respect to each Mortgage Loan, as of the Closing Date, there are no actions, suits, arbitrations or governmental investigations or proceedings by or before any court or other governmental authority or agency now pending against or affecting the Borrower under any Mortgage Loan or any of the Mortgaged Properties which, if determined against such Borrower or such Mortgaged Property, would materially and adversely affect the value of such Mortgaged Property, the security intended to be provided with respect to the related Mortgage Loan, or the ability of such Borrower and/or the current use of such Mortgaged Property to generate net cash flow to pay principal, interest and other amounts due under the related Mortgage Loan; and to the Seller’s actual knowledge there are no such actions, suits or proceedings threatened against such Borrower.
 
30)           Servicing.  The servicing and collection practices used by Seller in respect of each Mortgage Loan have been in all material respect legal, proper and prudent, in accordance with customary commercial mortgage servicing practices.
 
31)           Inspection.  The originator of the Mortgage Loan or the Seller has inspected or caused to be inspected each related Mortgaged Property within the 12 months prior to the Closing Date.
 
32)           Financial Reporting.  The Loan Documents require the Borrower to provide the holder of the Mortgage Loan with at least the following: annual operating statements, financial statements and, except for Mortgage Loans for which the related Mortgaged Property is leased to a single tenant or is a multifamily or similar property, rent rolls.

34)           Single Purpose Entity.  Each Borrower with respect to a Mortgage Loan with a principal balance as of the Cut-off Date in excess of $15,000,000 included in the Trust Fund is an entity whose organizational documents or related Loan Documents provide that it is, and at least so long as the Mortgage Loan is outstanding will continue to be, a Single Purpose Entity.  For this purpose, “Single Purpose Entity” shall mean a
 
 
D-14

 
 
Person, other than an individual, whose organizational documents or related Loan Documents provide that it shall engage solely in the business of owning and operating the Mortgaged Property and which does not engage in any business unrelated to such property and the financing thereof, does not have any assets other than those related to its interest in the Mortgaged Property or the financing thereof or any indebtedness other than as permitted by the related Mortgage or the other Loan Documents, and the organizational documents of which require that it have its own separate books and records and its own accounts, in each case which are separate and apart from the books and records and accounts of any other Person.
 
35)           REMIC.  The Mortgage Loan is a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code (but determined without regard to the rule in Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(f)(2) that treats certain defective mortgage loans as qualified mortgages) and, accordingly, (A) the gross proceeds of the Mortgage Loan to the related Borrower at origination did not exceed the non-contingent principal amount of the Mortgage Loan and (B) either:  (a) such Mortgage Loan is secured by an interest in real property (including land, buildings and structural components thereof, but excluding personal property) having a fair market value (i) at the date the Mortgage Loan was originated at least equal to 80% of the principal balance of the Mortgage Loan on such date or (ii) at the Closing Date at least equal to 80% of the unpaid principal balance of the Mortgage Loan on such date; provided that for purposes hereof, the fair market value of the real property interest must first be reduced by (A) the amount of any lien on the real property interest that is senior to the Mortgage Loan and (B) a proportionate amount of any lien that is in parity with the Mortgage Loan; or (b) substantially all the proceeds of such Mortgage Loan were used to acquire, improve or protect the real property which served as the only security for such Mortgage Loan (other than a recourse feature or other third party credit enhancement within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(a)(1)(ii)).  If the Mortgage Loan was “significantly modified” prior to the Closing Date so as to result in a taxable exchange under Section 1001 of the Code, it either (x) was modified as a result of the default or reasonably foreseeable default of such Mortgage Loan or (y) satisfies the provisions of either sub-clause (a)(i) above (substituting the date of the last such modification for the date the Mortgage Loan was originated) or sub-clause (B)(a)(ii), including the proviso thereto.  Any prepayment premium and yield maintenance charges applicable to the Mortgage Loan constitute “customary prepayment penalties” within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-1(b)(2).
 
36)           Due-on-Sale or Encumbrance.  Each of the Mortgage Loans contains a “due-on-sale” clause, which provides for the acceleration of the payment of the unpaid principal balance of the Mortgage Loan if, without the prior written consent of the holder of the Mortgage Loan, the property subject to the Mortgage, or any controlling interest therein, is directly or indirectly transferred or sold (except that it may provide for transfers by devise, descent or operation of law upon the death of a member, manager, general partner or shareholder of a Borrower and that it may provide for transfers subject to the Mortgage Loan holder’s approval of transferee, transfers of worn out or obsolete furnishings, fixtures, or equipment promptly replaced with property of equivalent value and functionality, transfers of leases entered into in accordance with the Loan

Mortgage except in compliance with REMIC Provisions and only (i) in consideration of payment in full (or in certain cases in which partial prepayment is permitted, in an amount equal to no less than 125% of the Allocated Loan Amount) therefor, (ii) in connection with the substitution of all or a portion of the Mortgaged Property in exchange for delivery of U.S. “government securities” within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(a)(8)(ii), in a defeasance meeting the requirements of representation (37) hereof, provided that in the case of a partial defeasance, the portion of the principal balance of the Mortgage Loan secured by the defeasance collateral is not less than 125% of the Allocated Loan Amount, (iii) where such portion to be released was not considered material for purposes of underwriting the Mortgage Loan or the appraisal obtained at origination of the Mortgage Loan and such release was contemplated at origination, (iv) conditioned on the satisfaction of certain underwriting and other requirements, including payment of a release price in an amount equal to not less than 125% of the Allocated Loan Amount for such Mortgaged Property or the portion thereof to be released or (v) as set forth on Schedule D-2 to this Exhibit D, in connection with the substitution of a replacement property in compliance with REMIC Provisions; provided that, in the case of clauses (i), (iii) and (iv), for any Mortgage Loan originated after December 6, 2010, if the fair market value of the real property constituting such Mortgaged Property after the release is not equal to at least 80% of the principal amount of the Mortgage Loan outstanding after the release, the Borrower is required to make a payment of principal in an amount not less than the amount required by the REMIC Provisions, unless the Borrower delivers an opinion of counsel to the effect that the failure to make that payment will not cause any REMIC that holds the Mortgage Loan to cease to be a REMIC.
 
39)           Commercial Property.  Each Mortgaged Property is owned by the related Borrower, except for Mortgaged Properties which are secured in whole or in a part by a Ground Lease and for out-parcels, and is used and occupied for commercial or multifamily residential purposes in accordance with applicable law.
 
40)           Casualty.  In the event of casualty or destruction of the Mortgaged Property, any non-conformity with applicable zoning laws as of the origination date will not prohibit the Mortgaged Property from being restored or repaired in all material respects, to the use or structure at the time of such casualty, except for restrictions on its use or rebuildability for which (i) law and ordinance insurance coverage has been obtained in amounts consistent with the standards utilized by the Seller or (ii) the Title Insurance Policy insures against such non-conformity.  For purposes of the foregoing sentence, it is understood that any change to the use or structure of the Mortgaged Property which materially and adversely affects the related Borrower’s ability to timely make payments on the related Mortgage Loan shall be deemed to be a material change to such use or structure.
 
41)           Capital Contribution; Construction.  Neither the Seller nor any affiliate thereof has any obligation to make any capital contributions to the related Borrower under the Mortgage Loan.  The Mortgage Loan was not originated for the sole purpose of financing the construction of incomplete improvements on the related Mortgaged Property.
 
 
D-17

 
 
42)           No Fraud.  No court of competent jurisdiction will determine in a final decree that fraud with respect to the Mortgage Loans has taken place on the part of the Seller or, to the Seller’s actual knowledge, on the part of any originator, in connection with the origination of such Mortgage Loan.
 
43)           Grace Periods.  If the related Mortgage or other Loan Documents provide for a grace period for delinquent Monthly Payments, such grace period is no longer than ten (10) days from the applicable payment date.
 
44)           Access.  The following statements are true with respect to the related Mortgaged Property:  (a) the Mortgaged Property is located on or adjacent to a dedicated road or has access to an irrevocable easement permitting ingress and egress and (b) the Mortgaged Property is served by public or private utilities, water and sewer (or septic facilities)  appropriate for the current use of the Mortgaged Property.
 
45)           Terrorism Insurance.  None of the Loan Documents contain any provision that expressly excuses the related borrower from obtaining and maintaining insurance coverage for acts of terrorism or, in circumstances where terrorism insurance is not expressly required, the mortgagee is not prohibited from requesting that the related borrower maintain such insurance, in each case, to the extent such insurance coverage is generally available for like properties in such jurisdictions at commercially reasonable rates.  Each Mortgaged Property is insured by a “standard extended coverage” casualty insurance policy that does not contain an express exclusion for (or, alternatively, is covered by a separate policy that insures against property damage resulting from) acts of terrorism.
 
46)           Appraisal.  An appraisal of the related Mortgaged Property was conducted in connection with the origination of such Mortgage Loan, and such appraisal contained a statement, or was accompanied by a letter from the appraiser, to the effect that the appraisal was performed in accordance with the requirements of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989, as in effect on the date such Mortgage Loan  was originated.
 
47)           Condemnation.  In the case of any Mortgage Loan originated after December 6, 2010, in the event of a taking of any portion of a Mortgaged Property by the United States, a State or any political subdivision or authority thereof, whether by legal proceeding or by agreement, the Borrower is required to pay down the principal balance of the Mortgage Loan in an amount required by the REMIC Provisions, and such amount may not be required to be applied to the restoration of the Mortgaged Property or released to the Borrower, if, immediately after the release of such portion of the Mortgaged Property from the lien of the Mortgage (but taking into account the planned restoration), the fair market value of the real property constituting the remaining Mortgaged Property is not equal to at least 80% of the remaining principal balance of the Mortgage Loan, unless the Borrower delivers an opinion of counsel to the effect that the failure to make that payment will not cause any REMIC that holds the Mortgage Loan to cease to be a REMIC.
 
 
D-18

 
 
48)           Release of Cross-Collateralization.  In the case of any Mortgage Loan originated after December 6, 2010, no such Mortgage Loan that is secured by more than one Mortgaged Property or that is cross-collateralized with another Mortgage Loan permits the release of cross-collateralization of the related Mortgaged Properties, other than in compliance with the REMIC Provisions.

The term “Environmental Site Assessment” shall mean a Phase I environmental report meeting the requirements of the American Society for Testing and Materials, and, if in accordance with customary industry standards a reasonable lender would require it, a Phase II environmental report, each prepared by a licensed third party professional experienced in environmental matters.

(iii)           the Seller’s reliance on such document or other information is consistent with the standard of care exercised by prudent lending institutions originating commercial mortgage loans; and
 
(iv)          although the Seller is under no obligation to verify independently the information contained in any document specified as being relied upon by it, the Seller believes the information contained therein to be true, accurate and complete in all material respects and has no actual knowledge of any facts or circumstances which would render reliance thereon unjustified without further inquiry.
 
The term “Mortgage Interest Rate” shall mean the fixed rate of interest per annum that each Mortgage Loan bears as of the Cut-off Date.
 
 
D-19

 
 
The term “Permitted Encumbrances” shall mean:

(iv)        the rights of tenants, as tenants only, whether under ground leases or space leases at the Mortgaged Property;
 
which together do not materially and adversely affect the related Borrower’s ability to timely make payments on the related Mortgage Loan, which do not materially interfere with the benefits of the security intended to be provided by the related Mortgage or the use, for the use currently being made, the operation as currently being operated, enjoyment, value or marketability of such Mortgaged Property, provided, however, that, for the avoidance of doubt, Permitted Encumbrances shall exclude all pari passu, second, junior and subordinated mortgages.
 
The term “UCC Financing Statement” shall mean a financing statement prepared and filed pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code, as in effect in the relevant jurisdiction.
 
Other.  For purposes of these representations and warranties, the term “to the Seller’s knowledge” shall mean that no officer, employee or agent of the Seller responsible for the underwriting, origination or sale of the Mortgage Loans or of any servicer responsible for servicing the Mortgage Loan on behalf of the Seller, believes that a given representation or warranty is not true or is inaccurate based upon the Seller’s reasonable inquiry, and that during the course of such inquiry, no such officer, employee or agent of the Seller has obtained any actual knowledge of any facts or circumstances that would cause such Person to believe that such representation or warranty was inaccurate.  Furthermore, all information contained in documents which are part of or required to be part of a Mortgage File shall be deemed to be within the Seller’s knowledge.  For purposes of these representations and warranties, the term “to the Seller’s actual knowledge” shall mean that an officer, employee or agent of the Seller responsible for the underwriting, origination and sale of the Mortgage Loans does not actually know of any facts or circumstances that would cause such Person to believe that such representation or warranty was inaccurate.
 
It is understood and agreed that the representations and warranties set forth in this Exhibit D shall survive delivery of the respective Mortgage Files to the Purchaser and/or the Trustee and shall inure to the benefit of the Purchaser and its successors and assigns (including without limitation the Trustee and the holders of the Certificates), notwithstanding any restrictive or qualified endorsement or assignment.
