In consideration of the mutual agreements contained herein, Seller and Purchaser hereby agree as follows:

 

1.             AGREEMENT TO PURCHASE.

 

1.1           Seller agrees to sell, and Purchaser agrees to purchase, on a servicing released basis, the Mortgage Loans identified on the schedule (the “Mortgage Loan Schedule”) annexed hereto asExhibit 1, as such schedule may be amended to reflect the actual Mortgage Loans accepted by Purchaser pursuant to the terms hereof. The Cut-off Date with respect to the Mortgage Loans is September 1, 2015;provided, that for purposes of determining amounts allocable to the related Seller, with respect to any Mortgage Loans not having due dates on the first day of each month, the scheduled payments of principal and/or interest due thereon during September 2015 are deemed to have been due and received on September 1, 2015 rather than the actual date of receipt. The Mortgage Loans will have an aggregate principal balance as of the close of business on the Cut-off Date, after giving effect to any payments during or prior to September 2015, whether or not received, of $123,157,000. The sale of the Mortgage Loans shall take place on September 24, 2015 or such other date as shall be mutually acceptable to the parties hereto (the “Closing Date”). The purchase price to be paid by Purchaser for the Mortgage Loans shall equal the amount to be set forth as such purchase price in the Bill of Sale (substantially in the form ofExhibit 3 hereto), to be entered into between the parties to this Agreement in connection with this Agreement and the issuance of the Certificates (the “Bill of Sale”). The purchase price shall be paid to Seller by wire transfer in immediately available funds on the Closing Date.

 

1.2           On the Closing Date, Purchaser will assign to the Trustee pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement all of its right, title and interest in and to the Mortgage Loans and its rights under this Agreement (to the extent set forth inSection 14 hereof), and the Trustee shall succeed to such right, title and interest in and to the Mortgage Loans and Purchaser’s rights under this Agreement (to the extent set forth inSection 14 hereof).

 

2.              CONVEYANCE OF MORTGAGE LOANS.

 

2.1           Effective as of the Closing Date, subject only to receipt of the consideration referred to inSection 1 hereof and the satisfaction of the conditions specified inSections 6 and7 hereof, Seller does hereby transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to Purchaser, without recourse, except as specifically provided herein all the right, title and interest of Seller in and to the Mortgage Loans identified on the Mortgage Loan Schedule as of the Closing Date, with the understanding that a servicing rights purchase and sale agreement or comparable agreement may be executed by Seller and the Master Servicer. The Mortgage Loan Schedule, as it may be amended from time to time on or prior to the Closing Date, shall conform to the requirements of this Agreement and the Pooling and Servicing Agreement. In connection with such transfer and assignment, Seller shall deliver to the Trustee (or the Custodian on its behalf), on behalf of Purchaser, on or prior to the Closing Date, the Mortgage Note (as described inclause 2.2.1 hereof) for each Mortgage Loan and on or prior to the fifth Business Day after the Closing Date, five limited powers of attorney substantially in the form attached hereto asExhibit 4 in favor of the Custodian (on behalf of the Trustee) and the Special Servicer to empower the Custodian (on behalf of the Trustee) and, in the event of the failure or incapacity of the Custodian (on behalf of

Seller agrees to reasonably cooperate with the Custodian, the Trustee and the Special Servicer in connection with any additional powers of attorney or revisions thereto that are requested by such parties for purposes of such recordation. The parties hereto agree that no such power of attorney shall be used with respect to any Mortgage Loan by or under authorization by any party hereto except to the extent that the absence of a document described in the second preceding sentence with respect to such Mortgage Loan remains unremedied as of the earlier of (i) the date that is one-hundred eighty (180) days following the delivery of notice of such absence to Seller, but in no event earlier than eighteen (18) months from the Closing Date, and (ii) the date (if any) on which such Mortgage Loan becomes a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan. The Custodian shall submit such documents for recording, at Seller’s expense, after the periods set forth above, provided, the Custodian shall not submit such assignments for recording if Seller produces evidence that it has sent any such assignment for recording and certifies that Seller is awaiting its return from the applicable recording office.

If any such document or instrument is lost or returned unrecorded or unfiled, as the case may be, because of a defect therein, Seller shall prepare a substitute therefor or cure such defect, and Seller shall, at its own expense (except in the case of a document or instrument that is lost by the Custodian), record or file, as the case may be, and deliver such document or instrument in accordance with thisSection 2.

 

2.7           Documents that are in the possession of Seller, its agents or its subcontractors that relate to the Mortgage Loans and that are not required to be delivered to the Trustee (or the Custodian on its behalf) shall be shipped by Seller to or at the direction of the Master Servicer, on behalf of Purchaser, on or prior to the 45th day after the Closing Date, in accordance with Section 2.1(d) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, if applicable.

Seller’s and Purchaser’s records shall reflect the transfer of each Mortgage Loan from Seller to Purchaser and its assigns as a sale.

However, if, notwithstanding the intent of the parties, the Mortgage Loans or any related property are held to be the property of Seller, or if for any other reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create a security interest in the Mortgage Loans or any related property, then:

 

2.10.1      this Agreement shall be deemed to be a security agreement; and

 

2.10.2      the conveyance provided for in thisSection 2 shall be deemed to be a grant by Seller to Purchaser of, and Seller hereby grants to Purchaser, a security interest in all of Seller’s right, title, and interest, whether now owned or existing or hereafter acquired or arising, in, to and under:

2.11         The possession by Purchaser or its designee (including, with respect to any Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan, the Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan Trustee for the benefit of, among others, the Trustee, as holder of such Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan) of the Mortgage Notes, the Mortgages, 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 for purposes of perfecting the security interest pursuant to the UCC (including, without limitation, Section 9-313 thereof) as in force in the relevant jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller makes no representation or warranty as to the perfection of any such security interest.

 

2.12         Notifications to Persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts, or 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, Purchaser or its designee, as applicable, for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law.

 

2.13         The Seller hereby agrees to provide the Purchaser with prompt notice of any information it receives which indicates that the transfer of each Mortgage Loan from the Seller to the Purchaser may not be treated as a sale. The Seller shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such reasonable actions as may be necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were deemed to create a security interest in the property described above, such security interest would be deemed to be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of the Agreement. In such case, the Seller hereby authorizes the Master Servicer, the Trustee and the Custodian to file all filings necessary to maintain the effectiveness of any original filings necessary under the UCC as in effect in any jurisdiction to perfect such security interest in such property. In connection herewith, the Purchaser shall have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party and creditor under the UCC as in force in the relevant jurisdiction.

 

2.14         Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, and subject toSection 2.1 hereof, Purchaser shall not be required to purchase any Mortgage Loan as to which any Mortgage Note (endorsed as described inclause 2.2.1 hereof) required to be delivered to the Trustee (or the Custodian on its behalf) or the Master Servicer pursuant to thisSection 2 on or before the Closing Date is not so delivered, or is not properly executed or is defective on its face, and Purchaser’s acceptance of the related Mortgage Loan on the Closing Date shall in no way constitute a waiver of such omission or defect or of Purchaser’s or its successors’ and assigns’ rights in respect thereof pursuant toSection 5 hereof.

 

2.15         The Seller shall not (i) re-acquire the Mortgage Loans or any portion thereof or interest therein (other than as required in order to comply with its obligations under this Agreement) or (ii) acquire any Certificates or interests therein in amounts that may cause the Seller to recognize the Mortgage Loans (or any portion thereof) as an asset of such Seller in its books and records. The Seller has internal accounting and finance controls in place to, in each case (a) monitor any such re-acquisition of the Mortgage Loans or acquisition of the Certificates

 

-10-
 

 

and (b) prevent any such recognition of the Mortgage Loans (or any portion thereof) as an asset of the Seller. In the event the Seller is required to recognize the Mortgage Loans (or any portion thereof) as an asset of the Seller for tax and/or accounting purposes, the Seller shall take immediate corrective action, such that the Mortgage Loans shall not be treated as an asset of the Seller for tax or accounting purposes.

 

2.16         The Seller (solely in respect of the Franchise Mortgage Loans it is selling to the Depositor) or its designee shall, within thirty (30) days of the Closing Date (or any shorter period if required by the applicable comfort letter) and with a copy to the Master Servicer, notify the related franchisor in writing that such Franchise Mortgage Loan has been transferred to the Trust and request a replacement comfort letter (or any such new document or acknowledgement as may be contemplated under the existing comfort letter).

The fact that Purchaser has conducted or has failed to conduct any partial or complete examination of the credit files, underwriting documentation or Mortgage Files for the Mortgage Loans shall not affect the right of Purchaser or the Trust to cause Seller to cure any Material Document Defect or Material Breach (each as defined below), or to repurchase or replace the defective Mortgage Loans pursuant toSection 5 hereof.

 

3.2           On or prior to the Closing Date, Seller shall allow representatives of Purchaser and any designees thereof to examine and audit all books, records and files pertaining to the Mortgage Loans, Seller’s underwriting procedures and Seller’s ability to perform or observe all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Agreement. Such examinations and audits shall take place upon reasonable prior advance notice at one or more offices of Seller during normal business hours and shall not be conducted in a manner that is disruptive to Seller’s normal business operations. In the course of such examinations and audits, Seller will make available to such representatives of Purchaser and any designees thereof reasonably adequate facilities, as well as the assistance of a sufficient number of knowledgeable and responsible individuals who are familiar with the Mortgage Loans and the terms of this Agreement, and Seller shall cooperate fully with any such examination and audit in all material respects. On or prior to the Closing Date, Seller shall provide Purchaser with all material information regarding Seller’s financial condition and access to knowledgeable financial or accounting officers for the purpose of answering questions with respect to Seller’s financial condition, financial statements as provided to Purchaser or other developments affecting Seller’s ability to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby or otherwise affecting Seller in any material respect.

3.4           Purchaser shall keep confidential any information regarding Seller and, to the extent required pursuant to the terms of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, the Mortgage Loans that has been delivered into Purchaser’s possession and that is not otherwise publicly available;provided, that such information shall not be kept confidential (and the right to require confidentiality under any confidentiality agreement is hereby waived) to the extent Purchaser deems such information necessary and appropriate or required to be included in the Preliminary PPM, the Final PPM, the Prospectus Supplement, the Free Writing Prospectus (as defined in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement) or any other disclosure document relating to the Certificates or Purchaser is required by law or court order to disclose such information. If Purchaser is required or otherwise deems it necessary and appropriate to disclose in the Free Writing Prospectus, the Preliminary PPM, the Final PPM, the Prospectus Supplement or any other disclosure document relating to the Certificates confidential information regarding Seller as described in the preceding sentence, Purchaser shall provide to Seller a copy of the proposed form of such disclosure prior to making such disclosure and Seller shall promptly, and in any event within two (2) Business Days, notify Purchaser of any inaccuracies therein, in which case Purchaser shall modify such form in a manner that corrects such inaccuracies. If Purchaser is required by law or court order to disclose confidential information regarding Seller as described in the second preceding sentence, Purchaser shall notify Seller and cooperate in Seller’s efforts to obtain a protective order or other reasonable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded such information and, if in the absence of a protective order or such assurance, Purchaser is compelled as a matter of law to disclose such information, Purchaser shall, prior to making such disclosure, advise and consult with Seller and its counsel as to such disclosure and the nature and wording of such disclosure and Purchaser shall use reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment therefor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if reasonably advised by counsel that Purchaser is required by a regulatory agency or court order to make such disclosure immediately, then Purchaser shall be permitted to make such disclosure without prior review by Seller and shall give Seller prompt notice of such disclosure.

4.1.2        This Agreement has been duly and validly authorized, executed and delivered by Seller, and assuming the due authorization, execution and delivery hereof by Purchaser, this Agreement constitutes the valid, legal and binding agreement of Seller, enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be limited by (A) laws relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership or moratorium, (B) other laws relating to or affecting the rights of creditors generally, (C) general equity principles (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law) or (D) public policy considerations underlying the securities laws, to the extent that such public policy considerations limit the enforceability of the provisions of this Agreement that purport to provide indemnification from liabilities under applicable securities laws.

 

4.1.3        No consent, approval, authorization or order of, registration or filing with, or notice to, any governmental authority or court is required, under federal or state law, for the execution, delivery and performance of or compliance by Seller with this Agreement, or the consummation by Seller of any transaction contemplated hereby, other than (A) such qualifications as may be required under state securities or blue sky laws, (B) the filing or recording of financing statements, instruments of assignment and other similar documents necessary in connection with Seller’s sale of the Mortgage Loans to Purchaser, (C) such consents, approvals, authorizations, qualifications, registrations, filings or notices as have been obtained and (D) where the lack of such consent, approval, authorization, qualification, registration, filing or notice would not have a material adverse effect on the performance by Seller under this Agreement.

4.1.6        On the Closing Date, the sale of the Mortgage Loans pursuant to this Agreement will effect a transfer by Seller of all of its right, title and interest in and to the Mortgage Loans to Purchaser.

 

4.1.7        To Seller’s knowledge, the information in the Free Writing Prospectus, the Preliminary PPM, the Final PPM and the Prospectus Supplement as to which the Seller is providing indemnification pursuant to that certain indemnification agreement, dated the date hereof, between Seller, Purchaser, the Underwriters, and the Initial Purchasers (the “Indemnification Agreement”, and such information the “Seller’s Information”) does not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein (solely in the case of the Prospectus Supplement) or necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. The Seller has complied with the disclosure requirements of Regulation AB that arise from its role as “originator” and “sponsor” (or, if Seller was not the originator with respect to any Mortgage Loan, the role of the related originator as “originator”) in connection with the issuance of the Public Certificates. The review described under “Transaction Parties—The Sponsors, Mortgage Loan Sellers and Originators—Bank of America, National Association–Review of Bank of America Mortgage Loans” in the Prospectus Supplement was designed and effected to provide reasonable assurance that the disclosure regarding the Mortgage Loans in the Prospectus Supplement is accurate in all material respects. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, this subparagraph 4.1.7 shall run exclusively to the benefit of Purchaser and no other party.

 

4.1.8        The Seller hereby agrees to deliver to the Purchaser (or with respect to any Serviced Companion Loan that is deposited into an Other Securitization, the depositor in such Other Securitization) and to the Certificate Administrator or the Trustee, as applicable, any Additional Form 10-D Disclosure, any Additional Form 10-K Disclosure and any Form 8-K Disclosure Information set forth next to the Seller’s name on Schedule IX, Schedule X or Schedule XI of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (in formatting reasonably appropriate for inclusion in such form) (collectively, “Seller Reporting Information”);provided, that the Seller Reporting Information shall not be exclusive of any additional disclosure items specifically related to the Seller or any related Mortgage Loan originator that may be added to Form 10-K, Form 10-D or Form 8-K subsequent to the date hereof that are required to be included in the Exchange Act reports related to the Trust if the Depositor or the Certificate Administrator provides the Seller with notice of such additional requirements. The Seller shall use its best efforts to deliver proposed disclosure language relating to any such event described under Items 1100(e), 1117, 1119 and/or 1124 of Regulation AB and Item 1.03 to Form 8-K to the Certificate Administrator or the Trustee, as applicable, and the Purchaser within one (1) Business Day and in any event no later than two (2) Business Days of the Seller becoming aware of such event and shall provide disclosure relating to any other Seller Reporting Information required to be disclosed by Seller pursuant to thisSection 4.1.8 on Form 8-K, Form 10-D or Form 10-K within two (2) Business Days following the Purchaser’s request for such disclosure language. In

 

-14-
 

 

connection with providing such disclosure language and Seller’s reporting obligations under Item 1119 of Regulation AB, upon reasonable request by Seller, Purchaser shall provide Seller with a list of all parties to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and any Servicing Function Participant with respect to which it has received notice pursuant to the terms of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement. The obligation of the Seller to provide the above-referenced disclosure materials shall be suspended (for so long as neither the Trust nor, with respect to any Serviced Companion Loan related to a Serviced Pari Passu Mortgage Loan sold to the Trust by the Seller, the trust in the related Other Securitization, is subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act), as to any fiscal year, upon the Certificate Administrator or the Trustee, as applicable, filing the form necessary to be filed with the Commission to suspend the Trust’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act as to that fiscal year in accordance with Section 13.8 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement or the reporting requirements with respect to the Trust under the Exchange Act have otherwise been automatically suspended;provided, that for the avoidance of doubt, the suspension of such information reporting does not apply to Seller Reporting Information that is required to be provided for the fiscal year prior to suspension of the Trust’s reporting requirements under the Exchange Act (including Additional Form 10-K Disclosure required to be disclosed on the Form 10-K related to the fiscal year preceding the year in which the form necessary to be filed with the Commission to suspend the Trust’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act was filed). The Purchaser shall provide the Seller with notice (which notice may be sent via facsimile or by email) if the Certificate Administrator or the Trustee, as applicable, does file the form necessary to be filed with the Commission to suspend the Trust’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act pursuant to Section 13.8 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement. The Seller hereby acknowledges that the information to be provided by it pursuant to this Section will be used in the preparation of reports meeting the reporting requirements of the Trust under Section 13(a) and/or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act.

 

The Seller hereby further agrees that with respect to any Serviced Companion Loan that is deposited into an Other Securitization, it shall, to the extent required under Section 13.2(c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, (i) pay or cause to be paid the out-of-pocket cost (including any reasonable attorney fees) of providing the information, opinion(s) of counsel, certifications and indemnification agreement(s) to the related Other Depositor by or on behalf of the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Trustee, the Custodian or the Certificate Administrator pursuant to Section 13.2(c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and (ii) take all actions reasonably requested of it by the related Other Depositor to enable such Other Securitization to comply with Regulation AB.

 

4.1.9        Except for the agreed-upon procedures report obtained from the accounting firm engaged to provide procedures involving a comparison of information in loan files for the Mortgage Loans to information on a data tape relating to the Mortgage Loans (the “Accountant’s Due Diligence Report”), the Seller has not obtained (and, through and including the Closing Date, will not obtain) any “third party due diligence report” (as defined in Rule 15Ga-2 under the Exchange Act (“Rule 15Ga-2”)) in connection with the transactions contemplated herein and in the Prospectus Supplement and, except for the accountants with respect to the Accountants’ Due Diligence Report, the Seller has not employed (and, through and including the Closing Date, will not employ) any third party to engage in any activity that constitutes “due diligence services” within the meaning of Rule 17g-10 under the Exchange Act

 

-15-
 

 

in connection with the transactions contemplated herein and in the Prospectus Supplement. The Underwriters and Initial Purchasers are intended third-party beneficiaries of the provisions set forth in thisSection 4.1.9.

 

To induce Purchaser to enter into this Agreement, Seller hereby covenants that the foregoing representations and warranties and those set forth onExhibit 2 hereto, subject to the exceptions set forth inSchedule 2-A toExhibit 2, will be true and correct in all material respects on and as of the Closing Date with the same effect as if made on the Closing Date.

 

Each of the representations, warranties and covenants made by Seller pursuant to thisSection 4.1 shall survive the sale of the Mortgage Loans and shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding any restrictive or qualified endorsement on the Mortgage Notes.

 

4.2           To induce Seller to enter into this Agreement, Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to Seller as of the date hereof:

 

4.2.1        Purchaser is a corporation duly organized, validly existing, and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware with full power and authority to carry on its business as presently conducted by it.

This Agreement, assuming due authorization, execution and delivery by Seller, constitutes the valid, legal and binding obligation of Purchaser, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and 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.

 

4.2.3        No consent, approval, authorization or order of, registration or filing with, or notice to, any governmental authority or court is required, under federal or state law, for the execution, delivery and performance of or compliance by Purchaser with this Agreement, or the consummation by Purchaser of any transaction contemplated hereby that has not been obtained or made by Purchaser.

 

4.2.4        Neither the purchase of the Mortgage Loans nor the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Purchaser will violate Purchaser’s certificate of incorporation or by-laws or constitute a default (or an event that, with notice or lapse of time or both, would constitute a default) under, or result in a breach of, any material agreement, contract, instrument or indenture to which Purchaser is a party or that may be applicable to Purchaser or its assets.

 

4.2.5        Purchaser’s execution and delivery of this Agreement and its performance and compliance with the terms of this Agreement will not constitute a violation of any law, rule, writ, injunction, order or decree of any court, or order or regulation of any federal, state or municipal government agency having jurisdiction over Purchaser or its assets, which violation

 

-16-
 

 

could materially and adversely affect the condition (financial or otherwise) or the operation of Purchaser or its assets or could materially and adversely affect its ability to perform its obligations and duties hereunder.

 

4.2.6        There are no actions or proceedings against, or investigations of, Purchaser pending or, to Purchaser’s knowledge, threatened against Purchaser before any court, administrative agency or other tribunal, the outcome of which could reasonably be expected to adversely affect the transfer of the Mortgage Loans, the issuance of the Certificates, the execution, delivery or enforceability of this Agreement or have an effect on the financial condition of Purchaser that would materially and adversely affect the ability of Purchaser to perform its obligations under this Agreement.

 

4.2.7        Purchaser has not dealt with any broker, investment banker, agent or other person, other than Seller, 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 consummation of any of the transactions contemplated hereby.

To induce Seller to enter into this Agreement, Purchaser hereby covenants that the foregoing representations and warranties will be true and correct in all material respects on and as of the Closing Date with the same effect as if made on the Closing Date.

 

Each of the representations and warranties made by Purchaser pursuant to thisSection 4.2 shall survive the purchase of the Mortgage Loans.

 

5.             REMEDIES UPON BREACH OF REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES MADE BY SELLER.

 

5.1           It is hereby acknowledged that Seller shall make for the benefit of the Trustee on behalf of the holders of the Certificates, whether directly or by way of Purchaser’s assignment of its rights hereunder to the Trustee, the representations and warranties set forth onExhibit 2 hereto (each as of the date hereof unless otherwise specified).

 

5.2           It is hereby further acknowledged that if any document required to be delivered to the Trustee (or the Custodian on its behalf) pursuant toSection 2 hereof is not delivered as and when required, not properly executed or is defective on its face, or if there is a breach of any of the representations and warranties required to be made by Seller regarding the characteristics of the Mortgage Loans and/or the related Mortgaged Properties as set forth inExhibit 2 hereto, and in either case (i) the defect or breach materially and adversely affects the interests of the holders of the Certificates in the related Mortgage Loan or (ii) both (A) the defect or breach materially and adversely affects the value of the Mortgage Loan and (B) the Mortgage Loan is a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan or Rehabilitated Mortgage Loan (any such defect described in the

 

-17-
 

 

precedingclause (i) or(ii), a “Material Document Defect” and any such breach described in the precedingclause (i) or(ii), a “Material Breach”), the Pooling and Servicing Agreement requires any party thereunder that determines such Material Document Defect or Material Breach exists, to promptly so notify Seller, among others, in writing. Seller may or, following receipt of a request to cure the related Material Document Defect or Material Breach as provided under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement by a party thereto (a “Cure Request”), Seller shall, not later than ninety (90) days from Seller’s receipt of the notice of, and a Cure Request with respect to, such Material Document Defect or Material Breach, cure such Material Document Defect or Material Breach, as the case may be, in all material respects;provided, that if such Material Document Defect or Material Breach, as the case may be, cannot be corrected or cured in all material respects within such ninety (90) day period, and such Material Document Defect or Material Breach would not cause the Mortgage Loan to be other than a “qualified mortgage” (as defined in the Code) but Seller is diligently attempting to effect such correction or cure, as certified by Seller in an Officer’s Certificate delivered to the Trustee and the Custodian, then the cure period will be extended for an additional ninety (90) days unless, solely in the case of a Material Document Defect, (x) the Mortgage Loan is then a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan and a Servicing Transfer Event has occurred as a result of a monetary default or as described in clause (ii) or clause (v) of the definition of “Servicing Transfer Event” in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and (y) the Material Document Defect was identified in a certification delivered to Seller by the Custodian (on behalf of the Trustee) pursuant to Section 2.2 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement not less than ninety (90) days prior to the Seller’s receipt of the notice of such Material Document Defect. The parties acknowledge that neither delivery of a certification or schedule of exceptions to Seller pursuant to Section 2.2 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement or otherwise nor possession of such certification or schedule by Seller shall, in and of itself, constitute delivery of notice of any Material Document Defect or knowledge or awareness by Seller, the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer of any Material Document Defect listed therein.

 

5.3           Seller hereby covenants and agrees that, if any such Material Document Defect or Material Breach that exists cannot be corrected or cured in all material respects or Seller otherwise fails to correct or cure within the above cure periods, Seller shall, on or before the termination of such cure periods, either (i) repurchase the affected Mortgage Loan or REO Mortgage Loan or interest in the foregoing from Purchaser or its assignee at the Purchase Price as defined in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, or (ii) if within the three-month period commencing on the Closing Date (or prior to the second anniversary of the Closing Date if the affected Mortgage Loan is a “defective obligation” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(4)(B)(ii) of the Code and Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(f)), at its option replace, without recourse (other than the representations and warranties made with respect thereto), any Mortgage Loan or successor REO Mortgage Loan to which such defect or breach relates with a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan. If such Material Document Defect or Material Breach would cause the Mortgage Loan to be other than a “qualified mortgage” (as defined in the Code), then notwithstanding the previous sentence or the previous paragraph, the cure, repurchase or substitution must occur within eighty-five (85) days from the date Seller was notified of the defect or breach;provided, that in any event, any such cure, repurchase or substitution must occur no later than eighty-five (85) days from the date of determination of the existence of a Material Document Defect or Material Breach as determined inSection 5.2 hereof. Seller agrees that any substitution shall be completed in accordance with the terms, conditions

 

-18-
 

 

and requirements of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, including the payment of a substitution shortfall amount equal to the excess, if any, of the applicable Purchase Price for the Mortgage Loan or REO Mortgage Loan to be replaced, over the Stated Principal Balance of the applicable Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan (together with any additional amounts specified in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement).

 

5.4           If (x) a Mortgage Loan is to be repurchased or replaced as contemplated above (a “Defective Mortgage Loan”), (y) such Defective Mortgage Loan is cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted with one or more other Mortgage Loans (such Defective Mortgage Loan and such other Mortgage Loans, collectively, “Crossed Mortgage Loans”) and (z) the applicable document defect or breach does not constitute a Material Document Defect or Material Breach, as the case may be, as to such other Crossed Mortgage Loans (without regard to this paragraph), then the applicable document defect or breach (as the case may be) shall be deemed to constitute a Material Document Defect or Material Breach, as the case may be, as to each such other Crossed Mortgage Loan for purposes of the above provisions, and Seller shall be obligated to repurchase or replace each such other Crossed Mortgage Loan in accordance with the provisions above, unless, in the case of such breach or document defect, (A) Seller provides a Nondisqualification Opinion to the Trustee at the expense of Seller and (B) both of the following conditions would be satisfied if Seller were to repurchase or replace only those Mortgage Loans as to which a Material Breach or Material Document Defect had occurred without regard to this paragraph (the “Affected Loan(s)”): (i) the Debt Service Coverage Ratio for all those Crossed Mortgage Loans (excluding the Affected Loan(s)) for the four (4) calendar quarters immediately preceding the repurchase or replacement is not less than the lesser of (A) 0.10x below the debt service coverage ratio for all such Crossed Mortgage Loans (including the Affected Loans(s)) set forth in Appendix I to the Prospectus Supplement and (B) the Debt Service Coverage Ratio for all such Crossed Mortgage Loans (including the Affected Loan(s)) for the four (4) preceding calendar quarters preceding the repurchase or replacement, and (ii) the Loan-to-Value Ratio for all such Crossed Mortgage Loans (excluding the Affected Loan(s)) is not greater than the greater of (A) the loan-to-value ratio, expressed as a whole number (taken to one decimal place), for all such Crossed Mortgage Loans (including the Affected Loan(s)) set forth in Appendix I to the Prospectus Supplementplus 10% and (B) the Loan-to-Value Ratio for all such Crossed Mortgage Loans (including the Affected Loans(s)), at the time of repurchase or replacement. The determination of the Master Servicer as to whether the conditions set forth above have been satisfied shall be conclusive and binding in the absence of manifest error. The Master Servicer will be entitled to cause to be delivered, or direct Seller to (in which case Seller shall) cause to be delivered to the Master Servicer, an Appraisal of any or all of the related Mortgaged Properties for purposes of determining whether the condition set forth inclause (ii) above has been satisfied, in each case at the expense of Seller if the scope and cost of the Appraisal is approved by Seller (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld).

 

5.5           With respect to any Defective Mortgage Loan, to the extent that Seller is required to repurchase or substitute for such Defective Mortgage Loan in the manner set forth inSection 5.4 while the Custodian (on behalf of the Trustee, as assignee of Purchaser) continues to hold any related Crossed Mortgage Loan, Seller and Purchaser hereby agree to forebear from enforcing any remedies against the other’s Primary Collateral but may exercise remedies against the Primary Collateral securing their respective Mortgage Loans, including with respect to the Trustee, the Primary Collateral securing the Mortgage Loans still held by the Trustee, so long as

 

-19-
 

 

such exercise does not impair the ability of the other party to exercise its remedies against its Primary Collateral. If the exercise of remedies by one party would impair the ability of the other party to exercise its remedies with respect to the Primary Collateral securing the Mortgage Loan or Mortgage Loans held by such party, then both parties shall forbear from exercising such remedies until the loan documents evidencing and securing the relevant Mortgage Loans can be modified in a manner that complies with the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to remove the threat of impairment as a result of the exercise of remedies. Any reserve or other cash collateral or letters of credit securing the Crossed Mortgage Loans shall be allocated between such Mortgage Loans in accordance with the Mortgage Loan documents, or otherwise on apro rata basis based upon their outstanding principal balances. All other terms of the Mortgage Loans shall remain in full force and effect, without any modification thereof. The Mortgagors set forth onSchedule A hereto are intended third-party beneficiaries of the provisions set forth inSection 5.4and thisSection 5.5. The provisions of this paragraph and the preceding paragraph may not be modified with respect to any Mortgage Loan without the related Mortgagor’s consent.

 

5.6           Any of the following document defects shall be conclusively presumed to materially and adversely affect the interests of Certificateholders in a Mortgage Loan and be a Material Document Defect: (a) the absence from the Mortgage File of the original signed Mortgage Note, unless the Mortgage File contains a signed lost note affidavit and indemnity that appears to be regular on its face (if such absence results from Seller’s failure to deliver such item); (b) the absence from the Mortgage File of the original signed Mortgage (or, with respect to any Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan, a copy thereof) that appears to be regular on its face, unless there is included in the Mortgage File a certified copy of the Mortgage by the local authority with which the Mortgage was recorded (if such absence results from Seller’s failure to deliver such item); (c) the absence from the Mortgage File of the item specified in paragraph 2.2.8 (if such absence results from Seller’s failure to deliver such item); (d) the absence from the Mortgage File of the original or a copy of any letter of credit in effect as of the Closing Date (if such absence results from Seller’s failure to deliver such item); or (e) the absence from the Mortgage File of a copy of the item specified in paragraph 2.2.10 (if such absence results from Seller’s failure to deliver such item) if the related Mortgage Loan is secured only by the related ground lease, space lease or air rights lease.

 

5.7           If Seller disputes that a Material Document Defect or Material Breach exists with respect to a Mortgage Loan or otherwise refuses (i) to effect a correction or cure of such Material Document Defect or Material Breach, (ii) to repurchase the affected Mortgage Loan from Purchaser or its assignee or (iii) to replace such Mortgage Loan with a Qualifying Substitute Mortgage Loan, each in accordance with this Agreement, thenprovided that (x) the period of time provided for Seller to correct, repurchase or cure has expired and (y) the Mortgage Loan is then in default and is then a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan, the Special Servicer may, subject to the Servicing Standard, modify, workout or foreclose, sell or otherwise liquidate (or permit the liquidation of) the Mortgage Loan pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, while pursuing the repurchase claim. Seller acknowledges and agrees that any modification of the Mortgage Loan pursuant to a workout shall not constitute a defense to any repurchase claim nor shall such modification and workout change the Purchase Price due from Seller for any repurchase claim. In the event of any such modification and workout, Seller shall be obligated to repurchase the Mortgage Loan as modified and the Purchase Price shall include any Workout

 

-20-
 

 

Fee paid to the Special Servicer up to the date of repurchaseplus the present value (calculated at the applicable Calculation Rate) of the Workout Fee that would have been payable to the Special Servicer in respect of such Mortgage Loan if the Mortgage Loan had performed in accordance with its terms to its Maturity Date,provided that no amount shall be paid by Seller in respect of any Workout Fee if a Liquidation Fee already comprises a portion of the Purchase Price or if the related Mortgagor has already paid such fee. Seller is entitled to be notified promptly and in writing by the Special Servicer of any offer that it receives to purchase the applicable Mortgage Loan or related REO Property, each in connection with such liquidation. Any sale of the related Mortgage Loan, or foreclosure upon such Mortgage Loan and sale of the related REO Property, to a Person other than Seller shall be without (i) recourse of any kind (either expressed or implied) by such Person against Seller and (ii) representation or warranty of any kind (either expressed or implied) by Seller to or for the benefit of such Person.

 

5.8           (a) If Seller (i) receives from any Person (other than the Depositor) any request or demand for repurchase or replacement of a Mortgage Loan because of a breach of a representation or warranty or a document defect (any such request or demand for repurchase or replacement, 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 any withdrawal of a Repurchase Request by the Person making such Repurchase Request, then Seller shall deliver notice of such Repurchase Request, rejection, Dispute or withdrawal (each, a “15Ga-1 Notice”) to the Depositor within ten (10) Business Days of Seller’s receipt thereof (or in the case of a rejection or Dispute, the occurrence thereof).

 

(b)           Seller shall provide to the Depositor relevant portions of any Form ABS-15G that Seller is required to file with the Commission (only to the extent that such portions relate to the Mortgage Loans) 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 Commission. Promptly upon request, the Depositor shall provide or cause to be provided to Seller such information regarding the principal balances of the Mortgage Loans in order for Seller to prepare any such form ABS-15G.

 

(c)           Seller agrees that a Repurchase Request Recipient (as defined in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement) will not, in connection with providing Seller with any 15Ga-1 Notice (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, Seller hereby acknowledges that (i) any 15Ga-1 Notice provided pursuant to Section 2.3(e) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement is so provided only to assist the Purchaser, Seller and their respective 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 Repurchase Request Recipient and (B) no information provided pursuant to Section 2.3(e) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement by a Repurchase Request Recipient shall be deemed to constitute a waiver or defense to the exercise of any legal right the Repurchase Request Recipient may have with respect to this Agreement, including with respect to any Repurchase Request that is the subject of a Rule 15Ga-1 Notice (as defined in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement).

 

-21-
 

 

(d)           Seller represents and warrants that any information Seller provides to the Depositor pursuant to thisSection 5.8 shall be true, complete and correct as of the date Seller provides such information to the Depositor.

 

5.9           The fact that a Material Document Defect or Material Breach is not discovered until after completion of foreclosure (but in all instances prior to the sale of the related REO Property) shall not prejudice any claim against Seller for repurchase of the REO Property (or the Trust’s interest therein). If the Master Servicer or Special Servicer, as applicable, notifies Seller of the discovery of the Material Document Defect or Material Breach then Seller shall have ninety (90) days to correct or cure such Material Document Defect or Material Breach or purchase the REO Property (or the Trust’s interest therein) at the Purchase Price. After a final liquidation of the Mortgage Loan or REO Property, if a court of competent jurisdiction issues a final order after the expiration of any applicable appeal period that Seller is or was obligated to repurchase the related Mortgage Loan or REO Property (or the Trust’s interest therein) (a “Final Judicial Determination”) or Seller otherwise accepts liability, then, but in no event later than the termination of the Trust pursuant to Section 11.1 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, Seller will be obligated to pay to the Trust the difference between any Liquidation Proceeds received upon such liquidation in accordance with the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (including those arising from any sale to Seller) and the Purchase Price.

 

5.10         Reserved.

 

5.11         The obligations of Seller set forth in thisSection 5 to cure a Material Document Defect or a Material Breach or repurchase or replace a defective Mortgage Loan constitute the sole remedies of Purchaser or its assignees with respect to a Material Document Defect or Material Breach in respect of an outstanding Mortgage Loan;provided, that this limitation shall not in any way limit Purchaser’s rights or remedies upon breach of any other representation or warranty or covenant by Seller set forth in this Agreement (other than those set forth inExhibit 2).

 

5.12         Notwithstanding the foregoing, if there is a breach of the representations and warranties set forth in paragraph 30 or paragraph 32 inExhibit 2 hereto, and as a result the payments, by a Mortgagor, of reasonable costs and expenses associated with securing the consent or approval of the holder of the Mortgage for a waiver of a “due-on-sale” or “due-on-encumbrance” clause or the defeasance of a Mortgage Loan are insufficient such that the Trust incurs an Additional Trust Expense in an amount equal to such reasonable costs and expenses not paid by such Mortgagor, Seller hereby covenants and agrees to reimburse the Trust within ninety (90) days of the receipt of notice of such breach in an amount sufficient to avoid such Additional Trust Expense. The parties hereto acknowledge that such reimbursement shall be the only obligation of Seller with respect to the breach discussed in the previous sentence.

 

5.13         Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser and Seller hereby acknowledge and agree that Seller has retained the right of the lender under the Mortgage Loan documents with respect to the Mortgage Loans to receive a percentage of the economic benefit associated with the ownership of the successor borrower, and to designate and establish the successor borrower and to purchase or cause the purchase on behalf of the related borrower of the related defeasance collateral, if there is a defeasance of such Mortgage Loan (“Bank of America Lender Successor

 

-22-
 

 

Borrower Right”). Purchaser shall cause the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to provide that (i) if the Master Servicer receives notice of a defeasance request with respect to a Mortgage Loan subject to defeasance, then the Master Servicer shall provide upon receipt of such notice, written notice of such defeasance request to Seller or its assignee and (ii) until such time as Seller provides written notice to the contrary, notice of a defeasance of a Mortgage Loan with Bank of America Lender Successor Borrower Right shall be delivered to Seller pursuant to the notice provisions of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

 

5.14         The Pooling and Servicing Agreement shall provide that (a) any party that is required to report the discovery of a Material Document Defect or Material Breach shall give written notice promptly to Seller of any such discovery and (b) the Master Servicer shall give prompt written notice to Seller if any Mortgage Loan becomes a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan (as defined in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement).

 

5.15         If Seller repurchases any Mortgage Loan pursuant to thisSection 5, Purchaser or its assignee, following receipt by the Trustee of the Purchase Price therefor, promptly shall deliver or cause to be delivered to Seller all Mortgage Loan documents with respect to such Mortgage Loan, and each document that constitutes a part of the Mortgage File that was endorsed or assigned to the Trustee shall be endorsed and assigned to Seller in the same manner such that Seller shall be vested with legal and beneficial title to such Mortgage Loan, in each case without recourse, including any property acquired in respect of such Mortgage Loan or proceeds of any insurance policies with respect thereto.

 

6.             CLOSING.

 

6.1           The closing of the sale of the Mortgage Loans shall be held at the offices of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, 227 West Trade Street, 24th Floor, Charlotte, North Carolina 28202 at 9:00 a.m., Charlotte, North Carolina time, on the Closing Date.

EXHIBIT 2
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES REGARDING
INDIVIDUAL MORTGAGE LOANS

 

(1)Whole Loan; Ownership of Mortgage Loans. Each Mortgage Loan is a whole loan and not a participation interest in a Mortgage Loan. At the time of the sale, transfer and assignment to Purchaser, no Mortgage Note or Mortgage was subject to any assignment (other than assignments to Seller), participation or pledge, and Seller had good title to, and was the sole owner of, each Mortgage Loan free and clear of any and all liens, charges, pledges, encumbrances, participations, any other ownership interests on, in or to such Mortgage Loan other than any servicing rights appointment or similar agreement. Seller has full right and authority to sell, assign and transfer each Mortgage Loan, and the assignment to Purchaser constitutes a legal, valid and binding assignment of such Mortgage Loan free and clear of any and all liens, pledges, charges or security interests of any nature encumbering such Mortgage Loan.

 

(2)Mortgage Loan Document Status. Each related Mortgage Note, Mortgage, Assignment of Leases (if a separate instrument), guaranty and other agreement executed by or on behalf of the related Mortgagor, guarantor or other obligor in connection with such Mortgage Loan is the legal, valid and binding obligation of the related Mortgagor, guarantor or other obligor (subject to any non-recourse provisions contained in any of the foregoing agreements and any applicable state anti-deficiency or market value limit deficiency legislation), as applicable, and is enforceable in accordance with its terms, except (i) as such enforcement may be limited by (a) bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent transfer, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and (b) general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law) and (ii) that certain provisions in such Mortgage Loan documents (including, without limitation, provisions requiring the payment of default interest, late fees or prepayment/yield maintenance fees, charges and/or premiums) are, or may be, further limited or rendered unenforceable by or under applicable law, but (subject to the limitations set forth inclause (i) above) such limitations or unenforceability will not render such Mortgage Loan documents invalid as a whole or materially interfere with the Mortgagee’s realization of the principal benefits and/or security provided thereby (clauses (i) and(ii) collectively, the “Standard Qualifications”).

 

Except as set forth in the immediately preceding sentences, there is no valid offset, defense, counterclaim or right of rescission available to the related Mortgagor with respect to any of the related Mortgage Notes, Mortgages or other Mortgage Loan documents, including, without limitation, any such valid offset, defense, counterclaim or right based on intentional fraud by Seller in connection with the origination of the Mortgage Loan, that would deny the Mortgagee the principal benefits intended to be provided by the Mortgage Note, Mortgage or other Mortgage Loan documents.

 

(3)Mortgage Provisions. The Mortgage Loan documents for each Mortgage Loan contain provisions that render the rights and remedies of the holder thereof adequate for the

 

2-1
 

 

 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, nonjudicial foreclosure subject to the limitations set forth in the Standard Qualifications.

  

(4)Mortgage Status; Waivers and Modifications. Since origination and except by written instruments set forth in the related Mortgage File (a) the material terms of such Mortgage, Mortgage Note, Mortgage Loan guaranty, and related Mortgage Loan documents have not been waived, impaired, modified, altered, satisfied, canceled, subordinated or rescinded in any respect which materially interferes with the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage; (b) no related Mortgaged Property or any portion thereof has been released from the lien of the related Mortgage in any manner which materially interferes with the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage or the use or operation of the remaining portion of such Mortgaged Property; and (c) neither the related Mortgagor nor the related guarantor has been released from its material obligations under the Mortgage Loan.

 

(5)Lien; Valid Assignment. Subject to the Standard Qualifications, each assignment of Mortgage and assignment of Assignment of Leases from Seller constitutes a legal, valid and binding assignment from Seller. Each related Mortgage and Assignment of Leases is freely assignable without the consent of the related Mortgagor. Each related Mortgage is a legal, valid and enforceable first lien on the related Mortgagor’s fee (or with respect to those Mortgage Loans described in paragraph (34) hereof, leasehold) interest in the Mortgaged Property in the principal amount of such Mortgage Loan or allocated loan amount (subject only to Permitted Encumbrances (as defined below) and the exceptions to paragraph (6) set forth inSchedule 2-A to thisExhibit 2 (each such exception, a “Title Exception”)), except as the enforcement thereof may be limited by the Standard Qualifications. Such Mortgaged Property (subject to and excepting Permitted Encumbrances and the Title Exceptions) as of origination was, and as of the Cut-off Date, to Seller’s knowledge, is free and clear of any recorded mechanics’ liens, recorded materialmen’s liens and other recorded encumbrances which are prior to or equal with the lien of the related Mortgage, except those which are bonded over, escrowed for or insured against by a lender’s title insurance policy (as described below), and, to Seller’s knowledge and subject to the rights of tenants (as tenants only) (subject to and excepting Permitted Encumbrances and the Title Exceptions), no rights exist which under law could give rise to any such lien or encumbrance that would be prior to or equal with the lien of the related Mortgage, except those which are bonded over, escrowed for or insured against by a lender’s title insurance policy (as described below). Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no representation is made as to the perfection of any security interest in rents or other personal property to the extent that possession or control of such items or actions other than the filing of UCC financing statements is required in order to effect such perfection.

 

(6)Permitted Liens; Title Insurance. Each Mortgaged Property securing a Mortgage Loan is covered by an American Land Title Association loan title insurance policy or a comparable form of loan title insurance policy approved for use in the applicable jurisdiction (or, if such policy is yet to be issued, by a pro forma policy, a preliminary

 

2-2
 

 

 title policy with escrow instructions or a “marked up” commitment, in each case binding on the title insurer) (the “Title Policy”) in the original principal amount of such Mortgage Loan (or with respect to a Mortgage Loan secured by multiple properties, an amount equal to at least the allocated loan amount with respect to the Title Policy for each such property) after all advances of principal (including any advances held in escrow or reserves), that insures for the benefit of the owner of the indebtedness secured by the Mortgage, the first priority lien of the Mortgage, which lien is subject only to (a) the lien of current real property taxes, water charges, sewer rents and assessments not yet due and payable; (b) covenants, conditions and restrictions, rights of way, easements and other matters of public record; (c) the exceptions (general and specific) and exclusions set forth in such Title Policy; (d) other matters to which like properties are commonly subject; (e) the rights of tenants (as tenants only) under leases (including subleases) pertaining to the related Mortgaged Property and condominium declarations; and (f) if the related Mortgage Loan constitutes a Crossed Mortgage Loan, the lien of the Mortgage for the related Crossed Mortgage Loan or Crossed Mortgage Loans;provided that none of such items (a) through (f), individually or in the aggregate, materially and adversely interferes with the value or current use of the Mortgaged Property or the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage or the Mortgagor’s ability to pay its obligations when they become due (collectively, the “Permitted Encumbrances”). Except as contemplated byclause (f) of the preceding sentence none of the Permitted Encumbrances are mortgage liens that are senior to or coordinate and co-equal with the lien of the related Mortgage. Such Title Policy (or, if it has yet to be issued, the coverage to be provided thereby) is in full force and effect, all premiums thereon have been paid, no claims have been made by Seller thereunder and no claims have been paid thereunder. Neither Seller nor, to Seller’s knowledge, any other holder of the Mortgage Loan, has done, by act or omission, anything that would materially impair the coverage under such Title Policy.

 

(7)Junior Liens. It being understood that B Notes secured by the same Mortgage as a Mortgage Loan are not subordinate mortgages or junior liens, except for any Crossed Mortgage Loans, there are, as of origination, and to Seller’s knowledge, as of the Cut-off Date, no subordinate mortgages or junior liens securing the payment of money encumbering the related Mortgaged Property (other than Permitted Encumbrances and the Title Exceptions, taxes and assessments, mechanics’ and materialmen’s liens (which are the subject of the representation in paragraph (5) above), and equipment and other personal property financing). Except as set forth inSchedule 2-A to thisExhibit 2, Seller has no knowledge of any mezzanine debt secured directly by interests in the related Mortgagor.

 

(8)Assignment of Leases and Rents. There exists as part of the related Mortgage File an Assignment of Leases (either as a separate instrument or incorporated into the related Mortgage). Subject to the Permitted Encumbrances and the Title Exceptions, each related Assignment of Leases creates a valid first-priority collateral assignment of, or a valid first-priority lien or security interest in, rents and certain rights under the related lease or leases, subject only to a license granted to the related Mortgagor to exercise certain rights and to perform certain obligations of the lessor under such lease or leases, including the right to operate the related leased property, except as the enforcement thereof may be limited by the Standard Qualifications. The related Mortgage or related Assignment of

 

2-3
 

 

 Leases, subject to applicable law, provides that, upon an event of default under the Mortgage Loan, a receiver is permitted to be appointed for the collection of rents or for the related Mortgagee to enter into possession to collect the rents or for rents to be paid directly to the Mortgagee.

 

(9)UCC Filings. If the related Mortgaged Property is operated as a hospitality property, the Seller has filed and/or recorded or caused to be filed and/or recorded (or, if not filed and/or recorded, has submitted or caused to be submitted in proper form for filing and/or recording), UCC financing statements in the appropriate public filing and/or recording offices necessary at the time of the origination of the Mortgage Loan to perfect a valid security interest in all items of physical personal property reasonably necessary to operate such Mortgaged Property owned by such Mortgagor and located on the related Mortgaged Property (other than any non-material personal property, any personal property subject to a purchase money security interest, a sale and leaseback financing arrangement as permitted under the terms of the related Mortgage Loan documents or any other personal property leases applicable to such personal property), to the extent perfection may be effected pursuant to applicable law by recording or filing, as the case may be. Subject to the Standard Qualifications, each related Mortgage (or equivalent document) creates a valid and enforceable lien and security interest on the items of personalty described above. No representation is made as to the perfection of any security interest in rents or other personal property to the extent that possession or control of such items or actions other than the filing of UCC financing statements are required in order to effect such perfection.

 

(10)Condition of Property. Seller or the originator of the Mortgage Loan inspected or caused to be inspected each related Mortgaged Property within six (6) months of origination of the Mortgage Loan and within twelve (12) months of the Cut-off Date.

 

An engineering report or property condition assessment was prepared in connection with the origination of each Mortgage Loan no more than twelve (12) months prior to the Cut-off Date. To Seller’s knowledge, based solely upon due diligence customarily performed in connection with the origination of comparable mortgage loans, as of the Closing Date, each related Mortgaged Property was free and clear of any material damage (other than (i) deferred maintenance for which escrows were established at origination and (ii) any damage fully covered by insurance) that would affect materially and adversely the use or value of such Mortgaged Property as security for the Mortgage Loan.

 

(11)Taxes and Assessments. All taxes, governmental assessments and other outstanding governmental charges (including, without limitation, water and sewage charges), or installments thereof, which could be a lien on the related Mortgaged Property that would be of equal or superior priority to the lien of the Mortgage and that prior to the Cut-off Date have become delinquent in respect of each related Mortgaged Property have been paid, or an escrow of funds has been established in an amount sufficient to cover such payments and reasonably estimated interest and penalties, if any, thereon. For purposes of this representation and warranty, real estate taxes and governmental assessments and other outstanding governmental charges and installments thereof shall not be considered delinquent until the earlier of (a) the date on which interest and/or penalties would first be

 

2-4
 

 

 payable thereon and (b) the date on which enforcement action is entitled to be taken by the related taxing authority.

 

(12)Condemnation. As of the date of origination and to Seller’s knowledge as of the Cut-off Date, there is no proceeding pending, and, to Seller’s knowledge as of the date of origination and as of the Cut-off Date, there is no proceeding threatened, for the total or partial condemnation of such Mortgaged Property that would have a material adverse effect on the value, use or operation of the Mortgaged Property.

 

(13)Actions Concerning Mortgage Loan. As of the date of origination and to Seller’s knowledge as of the Cut-off Date, there was no pending or filed action, suit or proceeding, arbitration or governmental investigation involving any Mortgagor, guarantor or Mortgagor’s interest in the Mortgaged Property, an adverse outcome of which would reasonably be expected to materially and adversely affect (a) such Mortgagor’s title to the Mortgaged Property, (b) the validity or enforceability of the Mortgage, (c) such Mortgagor’s ability to perform under the related Mortgage Loan, (d) such guarantor’s ability to perform under the related guaranty, (e) the principal benefit of the security intended to be provided by the Mortgage Loan documents or (f) the current principal use of the Mortgaged Property.

 

(14)Escrow Deposits. All escrow deposits and payments required to be escrowed with lender pursuant to each Mortgage Loan are in the possession, or under the control, of Seller or its servicer, and there are no deficiencies (subject to any applicable grace or cure periods) in connection therewith, and all such escrows and deposits (or the right thereto) that are required to be escrowed with lender under the related Mortgage Loan documents are being conveyed by Seller to Purchaser or its servicer.

 

(15)No Holdbacks. The principal amount of the Mortgage Loan stated on the Mortgage Loan Schedule has been fully disbursed as of the Closing Date and there is no requirement for future advances thereunder (except in those cases where the full amount of the Mortgage Loan has been disbursed but a portion thereof is being held in escrow or reserve accounts pending the satisfaction of certain conditions relating to leasing, repairs or other matters with respect to the related Mortgaged Property, the Mortgagor or other considerations determined by Seller to merit such holdback).

 

(16)Insurance. Each related Mortgaged Property is, and is required pursuant to the related Mortgage to be, insured by a property insurance policy providing coverage for loss in accordance with coverage found under a “special cause of loss form” or “all risk form” that includes replacement cost valuation issued by an insurer meeting the requirements of the related Mortgage Loan documents and having a claims-paying or financial strength rating of at least “A-:VIII” from A.M. Best Company or “A3” (or the equivalent) from Moody’s or “A-” from S&P (collectively the “Insurance Rating Requirements”), in an amount (subject to a customary deductible) not less than the lesser of (1) the original principal balance of the Mortgage Loan and (2) the full insurable value on a replacement cost basis of the improvements, furniture, furnishings, fixtures and equipment owned by the Mortgagor and included in the Mortgaged Property (with no deduction for physical depreciation), but, in any event, not less than the amount necessary, or containing such

 

2-5
 

 

 endorsements as are necessary, to avoid the operation of any coinsurance provisions with respect to the related Mortgaged Property.

 

Each related Mortgaged Property is also covered, and required to be covered pursuant to the related Mortgage Loan documents, by business interruption or rental loss insurance which (subject to a customary deductible) covers a period of not less than twelve (12) months (or with respect to each Mortgage Loan on a single asset with a principal balance of $50 million or more, eighteen (18) months).

 

If any material part of the improvements, exclusive of a parking lot, located on a Mortgaged Property is in an area identified in the Federal Register by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as having special flood hazards, the related Mortgagor is required to maintain insurance in the maximum amount available under the National Flood Insurance Program.

 

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, the related Mortgagor is required to maintain coverage for windstorm and/or windstorm related perils and/or “named storms” issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements or endorsement covering damage from windstorm and/or windstorm related perils and/or named storms.

 

The Mortgaged Property is covered, and required to be covered pursuant to the related Mortgage Loan documents, by a commercial general liability insurance policy issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements including coverage for property damage, contractual damage and personal injury (including bodily injury and death) in amounts as are generally required by the Seller for loans originated for securitization, and in any event not less than $1 million per occurrence and $2 million in the aggregate.

 

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 scenario expected limit (“SEL”) for the Mortgaged Property in the event of an earthquake. In such instance, the SEL was based on a 475-year return period, an exposure period of fifty (50) years and a 10% probability of exceedance. If the resulting report concluded that the SEL would exceed 20% of the amount of the replacement costs of the improvements, earthquake insurance on such Mortgaged Property was obtained by an insurer rated at least “A:VIII” by A.M. Best Company or “A3” (or the equivalent) from Moody’s or “A-” by S&P in an amount not less than 100% of the SEL.

 

The Mortgage Loan documents require insurance proceeds in respect of a property loss to be applied either (a) to the repair or restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property, with respect to all property losses in excess of 5% of the then outstanding principal amount of the related Mortgage Loan, the lender (or a trustee appointed by it) having the right to hold and disburse such proceeds as the repair or restoration progresses, or (b) to the payment of the outstanding principal balance of such Mortgage Loan together with any accrued interest thereon.

 

2-6
 

 

All premiums on all insurance policies referred to in this section required to be paid as of the Cut-off Date have been paid, and such insurance policies name the lender under the Mortgage Loan and its successors and assigns as a loss payee under a mortgagee endorsement clause or, in the case of the general liability insurance policy, as named or additional insured. Such insurance policies will inure to the benefit of the Trustee. Each related Mortgage Loan obligates the related Mortgagor to maintain all such insurance and, at such Mortgagor’s failure to do so, authorizes the lender to maintain such insurance at the Mortgagor’s cost and expense and to charge such Mortgagor for related premiums. All such insurance policies (other than commercial liability policies) require at least ten (10) days’ prior notice to the lender of termination or cancellation arising because of nonpayment of a premium and at least thirty (30) days prior notice to the lender of termination or cancellation (or such lesser period, not less than ten (10) days, as may be required by applicable law) arising for any reason other than non-payment of a premium and no such notice has been received by Seller.

 

(17)Access; Utilities; Separate Tax Lots. Each Mortgaged Property (a) is located on or adjacent to a public road and has direct legal access to such road, or has access via an irrevocable easement or irrevocable right of way permitting ingress and egress to/from a public road, (b) is served by or has uninhibited access rights to public or private water and sewer (or well and septic) and all required utilities, all of which are appropriate for the current use of the Mortgaged Property, and (c) constitutes one or more separate tax parcels which do not include any property which is not part of the Mortgaged Property or is subject to an endorsement under the related Title Policy insuring the Mortgaged Property, or in certain cases, an application has been, or will be, made to the applicable governing authority for creation of separate tax lots, in which case the Mortgage Loan requires the Mortgagor to escrow an amount sufficient to pay taxes for the existing tax parcel of which the Mortgaged Property is a part until the separate tax lots are created.

 

(18)No Encroachments. To Seller’s knowledge based solely on surveys obtained in connection with origination and the lender’s Title Policy (or, if such policy is not yet issued, a pro forma title policy, a preliminary title policy with escrow instructions or a “marked up” commitment) obtained in connection with the origination of each Mortgage Loan, all material improvements that were included for the purpose of determining the appraised value of the related Mortgaged Property at the time of the origination of such Mortgage Loan are within the boundaries of the related Mortgaged Property, except encroachments that do not materially and adversely affect the value or current use of such Mortgaged Property or for which insurance or endorsements were obtained under the Title Policy. No improvements on adjoining parcels encroach onto the related Mortgaged Property except for encroachments that do not materially and adversely affect the value or current use of such Mortgaged Property or for which insurance or endorsements were obtained under the Title Policy. No improvements encroach upon any easements except for encroachments the removal of which would not materially and adversely affect the value or current use of such Mortgaged Property or for which insurance or endorsements obtained with respect to the Title Policy.

 

(19)No Contingent Interest or Equity Participation. No Mortgage Loan has a shared appreciation feature, any other contingent interest feature or a negative amortization

 

2-7
 

 

 feature (except that an ARD Loan may provide for the accrual of the portion of interest in excess of the rate in effect prior to the Anticipated Repayment Date) or an equity participation by Seller.

 

(20)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 the U.S. Department of Treasury regulations (the “Treasury Regulations”) Section 1.860G-2(f)(2) that treats certain defective mortgage loans as qualified mortgages), and, accordingly, (A) the issue price of the Mortgage Loan to the related Mortgagor 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 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 adjusted issue price of the Mortgage Loan on such date or (ii) at the Closing Date at least equal to 80% of the adjusted issue price 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 of 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 Section 1.860G-2(a)(1)(ii) of the Treasury Regulations). 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 eithersub-clause (B)(a)(i) above (substituting the date of the last such modification for the date the Mortgage Loan was originated) orsub-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 Section 1.860G-1(b)(2) of the Treasury Regulations. All terms used in this paragraph shall have the same meanings as set forth in the related Treasury Regulations.

 

(21)Compliance with Certain Laws. The Mortgage Rate (exclusive of any default interest, late charges, yield maintenance charge, or prepayment premiums) of such Mortgage Loan complied as of the date of origination with, or was exempt from, applicable state or federal laws, regulations and other requirements pertaining to usury.

 

(22)Authorized to do Business. To the extent required under applicable law, as of the Cut-off Date or as of the date that such entity held the Mortgage Note, each holder of the Mortgage Note was authorized to transact and do business in the jurisdiction in which each related Mortgaged Property is located, or the failure to be so authorized does not materially and adversely affect the enforceability of such Mortgage Loan by the Trust.

 

(23)Trustee under Deed of Trust. With respect to each Mortgage which is a deed of trust, as of the date of origination and, to Seller’s knowledge, as of the Closing Date, a trustee, duly qualified under applicable law to serve as such, currently so serves and is named in the deed of trust or has been substituted in accordance with the Mortgage and applicable

 

2-8
 

 

law or may be substituted in accordance with the Mortgage and applicable law by the related Mortgagee.

 

(24)Local Law Compliance. To Seller’s knowledge, based upon any of a letter from any governmental authorities, a legal opinion, an architect’s letter, a zoning consultant’s report, an endorsement to the related Title Policy, or other affirmative investigation of local law compliance consistent with the investigation conducted by Seller for similar commercial and multifamily mortgage loans intended for securitization, the improvements located on or forming part of each Mortgaged Property securing a Mortgage Loan as of the date of origination of such Mortgage Loan and as of the Cut-off Date, there are no material violations of applicable zoning ordinances, building codes and land laws (collectively “Zoning Regulations”) other than those which (i) are insured by the Title Policy or a law and ordinance insurance policy or (ii) would not have a material adverse effect on the Mortgage Loan. The terms of the Mortgage Loan documents require the Mortgagor to comply in all material respects with all applicable governmental regulations, zoning and building laws.

 

(25)Licenses and Permits. Each Mortgagor covenants in the Mortgage Loan documents that it shall keep all material licenses, permits and applicable governmental authorizations necessary for its operation of the Mortgaged Property in full force and effect, and to Seller’s knowledge based upon a letter from any government authorities or other affirmative investigation of local law compliance consistent with the investigation conducted by Seller for similar commercial and multifamily mortgage loans intended for securitization, all such material licenses, permits and applicable governmental authorizations are in effect. The Mortgage Loan requires the related Mortgagor to be qualified to do business in the jurisdiction in which the related Mortgaged Property is located.

 

(26)Recourse Obligations. The Mortgage Loan documents for each Mortgage Loan provide that such Mortgage Loan (a) becomes full recourse to the Mortgagor and guarantor (which is a natural person or persons, or an entity distinct from the Mortgagor (but may be affiliated with the Mortgagor) that has assets other than equity in the related Mortgaged Property that are notde minimis) in any of the following events: (i) if any voluntary petition for bankruptcy, insolvency, dissolution or liquidation pursuant to federal bankruptcy law, or any similar federal or state law, shall be filed by the Mortgagor; (ii) Mortgagor or guarantor shall have colluded with (or, alternatively, solicited or caused to be solicited) other creditors to cause an involuntary bankruptcy filing with respect to the Mortgagor or (iii) voluntary transfers of either the Mortgaged Property or equity interests in Mortgagor made in violation of the Mortgage Loan documents; and (b) contains provisions providing for recourse against the Mortgagor and guarantor (which is a natural person or persons, or an entity distinct from the Mortgagor (but may be affiliated with the Mortgagor) that has assets other than equity in the related Mortgaged Property that are notde minimis), for losses and damages sustained by reason of Mortgagor’s (i) misappropriation of rents after the occurrence of an event of default under the Mortgage Loan; (ii) misappropriation of (A) insurance proceeds or condemnation awards or (B) security deposits or, alternatively, the failure of any security deposits to be delivered to lender upon foreclosure or action in lieu thereof (except to the

 

2-9
 

 

 extent applied in accordance with leases prior to a Mortgage Loan event of default); (iii) fraud or intentional material misrepresentation; (iv) breaches of the environmental covenants in the Mortgage Loan documents; or (v) commission of intentional material physical waste at the Mortgaged Property.

 

(27)Mortgage Releases. The terms of the related Mortgage or related Mortgage Loan documents do not provide for release of any material portion of the Mortgaged Property from the lien of the Mortgage except (a) a partial release, accompanied by principal repayment, or partial Defeasance (as defined in paragraph (32) below), of not less than a specified percentage at least equal to the lesser of (i) 110% of the related allocated loan amount of such portion of the Mortgaged Property and (ii) the outstanding principal balance of the Mortgage Loan, (b) upon payment in full of such Mortgage Loan, (c) upon a Defeasance (as defined in paragraph (32) below), (d) releases of out-parcels that are unimproved or other portions of the Mortgaged Property which will not have a material adverse effect on the underwritten value of the Mortgaged Property and which were not afforded any material value in the appraisal obtained at the origination of the Mortgage Loan and are not necessary for physical access to the Mortgaged Property or compliance with zoning requirements, or (e) as required pursuant to an order of condemnation. With respect to any partial release under the precedingclauses (a) or(d), either: (x) such release of collateral (i) would not constitute a “significant modification” of the subject Mortgage Loan within the meaning of Section 1.860G-2(b)(2) of the Treasury Regulations and (ii) would not cause the subject Mortgage Loan to fail to be a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3)(A) of the Code; or (y) the Mortgagee or servicer can, in accordance with the related Mortgage Loan documents, condition such release of collateral on the related Mortgagor’s delivery of an opinion of tax counsel to the effect specified in the immediately precedingclause (x). For purposes of the precedingclause (x), 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 balance of the Mortgage Loan outstanding after the release, the Mortgagor is required to make a payment of principal in an amount not less than the amount required by the REMIC Provisions.

 

In the case of any Mortgage Loan, in the event of a taking of any portion of a Mortgaged Property by a State or any political subdivision or authority thereof, whether by legal proceeding or by agreement, the Mortgagor can be required to pay down the principal balance of the Mortgage Loan in an amount not less than the amount required by the loan-to-value ratio and other requirements of the REMIC Provisions and, to such extent, condemnation awards may not be required to be applied to the restoration of the Mortgaged Property or released to the Mortgagor, 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.

 

No Mortgage Loan that is secured by more than one Mortgaged Property or that is a Crossed Mortgage Loan permits the release of cross-collateralization of the related Mortgaged Properties or a portion thereof, including due to a partial condemnation, other

 

2-10
 

 

than in compliance with loan-to-value ratio and other requirements of the REMIC Provisions.

 

(28)Financial Reporting and Rent Rolls. Each Mortgage requires the Mortgagor to provide the owner or holder of the Mortgage with quarterly (other than for single-tenant properties) and annual operating statements, and quarterly (other than for single-tenant properties) rent rolls for properties that have leases contributing more than 5% of the in-place base rent and annual financial statements, which annual financial statements with respect to each Mortgage Loan with more than one Mortgagor are in the form of an annual combined balance sheet of the Mortgagor entities (and no other entities), together with the related combined statements of operations, members’ capital and cash flows, including a combining balance sheet and statement of income for the Mortgaged Properties on a combined basis.

 

(29)Acts of Terrorism Exclusion. With respect to each Mortgage Loan over $20 million, the related special-form all-risk insurance policy and business interruption policy (issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements) do not specifically exclude Acts of Terrorism, as defined in the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, as amended by the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2007 and the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2015 (collectively referred to as “TRIA”), from coverage, or if such coverage is excluded, it is covered by a separate terrorism insurance policy. With respect to each other Mortgage Loan, the related special all-risk insurance policy and business interruption policy (issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements) did not, as of the date of origination of the Mortgage Loan, and, to Seller’s knowledge, do not, as of the Cut-off Date, specifically exclude Acts of Terrorism, as defined in TRIA, from coverage, or if such coverage is excluded, it is covered by a separate terrorism insurance policy. With respect to each Mortgage Loan, the related Mortgage Loan documents do not expressly waive or prohibit the Mortgagee from requiring coverage for Acts of Terrorism, as defined in TRIA, or damages related thereto except to the extent that any right to require such coverage may be limited by commercial availability on commercially reasonable terms;provided, that if TRIA or a similar or subsequent statute is not in effect, then,provided that terrorism insurance is commercially available, the Mortgagor under each Mortgage Loan is required to carry terrorism insurance, but in such event the Mortgagor shall not be required to spend on terrorism insurance coverage more than two times the amount of the insurance premium that is payable in respect of the property and business interruption/rental loss insurance required under the related Mortgage Loan documents (without giving effect to the cost of terrorism and earthquake components of such casualty and business interruption/rental loss insurance) at the time of the origination of the Mortgage Loan, and if the cost of terrorism insurance exceeds such amount, the Mortgagor is required to purchase the maximum amount of terrorism insurance available with funds equal to such amount.

 

(30)Due on Sale or Encumbrance. Subject to specific exceptions set forth below, each Mortgage Loan contains a “due on sale” or other such provision for the acceleration of the payment of the unpaid principal balance of such Mortgage Loan if, without the consent of the holder of the Mortgage (which consent, in some cases, may not be unreasonably withheld) and/or complying with the requirements of the related Mortgage

 

2-11
 

 

 Loan documents (which provide for transfers without the consent of the lender which are customarily acceptable to Seller lending on the security of property comparable to the related Mortgaged Property, including, without limitation, transfers of worn-out or obsolete furnishings, fixtures, or equipment promptly replaced with property of equivalent value and functionality and transfers by leases entered into in accordance with the Mortgage Loan documents), (a) the related Mortgaged Property, or any equity interest of greater than 50% in the related Mortgagor, is directly or indirectly pledged, transferred or sold, other than as related to (i) family and estate planning transfers or transfers upon death or legal incapacity, (ii) transfers to certain affiliates as defined in the related Mortgage Loan documents, (iii) transfers of less than, or other than, a controlling interest in the related Mortgagor, (iv) transfers to another holder of direct or indirect equity in the Mortgagor, a specific Person designated in the related Mortgage Loan documents or a Person satisfying specific criteria identified in the related Mortgage Loan documents, such as a qualified equityholder, (v) transfers of stock or similar equity units in publicly traded companies or (vi) a substitution or release of collateral within the parameters of paragraphs (27) and (32) herein or the exceptions thereto set forth inSchedule 2-A to thisExhibit 2, or (vii) by reason of any mezzanine debt that existed at the origination of the related Mortgage Loan, or future permitted mezzanine debt or (b) the related Mortgaged Property is encumbered with a subordinate lien or security interest against the related Mortgaged Property, other than (i) any Serviced Companion Loan or Non-Serviced Companion Loan or any subordinate debt that existed at origination and is permitted under the related Mortgage Loan documents, (ii) purchase money security interests, (iii) any Crossed Mortgage Loan, as set forth on Appendix I to the Prospectus Supplement or (iv) Permitted Encumbrances. The Mortgage or other Mortgage Loan documents provide that to the extent any Rating Agency fees are incurred in connection with the review of and consent to any transfer or encumbrance, the Mortgagor is responsible for such payment along with all other reasonable fees and expenses incurred by the Mortgagee relative to such transfer or encumbrance.

 

(31)Single-Purpose Entity. Each Mortgage Loan requires the Mortgagor to be a Single-Purpose Entity for at least as long as the Mortgage Loan is outstanding. Both the Mortgage Loan documents and the organizational documents of the Mortgagor with respect to each Mortgage Loan with a Cut-off Date Principal Balance in excess of $5 million provide that the Mortgagor is a Single-Purpose Entity, and each Mortgage Loan with a Cut-off Date Principal Balance of $20 million or more has a counsel’s opinion regarding non-consolidation of the Mortgagor. For this purpose, a “Single-Purpose Entity” shall mean an entity, other than an individual, whose organizational documents (or if the Mortgage Loan has a Cut-off Date Principal Balance equal to $5 million or less, its organizational documents or the related Mortgage Loan documents) provide substantially to the effect that it was formed or organized solely for the purpose of owning and operating one or more of the Mortgaged Properties securing the Mortgage Loans and prohibit it from engaging in any business unrelated to such Mortgaged Property or Mortgaged Properties, and whose organizational documents further provide, or which entity represented in the related Mortgage Loan documents, substantially to the effect that it does not have any assets other than those related to its interest in and operation of such Mortgaged Property or Mortgaged Properties, or any indebtedness other than as permitted by the related Mortgage(s) or the other related Mortgage Loan

 

2-12
 

 

 documents, that it has its own books and records and accounts separate and apart from those of any other person (other than a Mortgagor for a Crossed Mortgage Loan), and that it holds itself out as a legal entity, separate and apart from any other person or entity.

 

(32)Defeasance. With respect to any Mortgage Loan that, pursuant to the Mortgage Loan documents, can be defeased (a “Defeasance”), (i) the Mortgage Loan documents provide for Defeasance as a unilateral right of the Mortgagor, subject to satisfaction of conditions specified in the Mortgage Loan documents; (ii) the Mortgage Loan cannot be defeased within two (2) years after the Closing Date; (iii) the Mortgagor is permitted to pledge only United States “government securities” within the meaning of Section 1.860G-2(a)(8)(ii) of the Treasury Regulations, the revenues from which will, in the case of a full Defeasance, be sufficient to make all scheduled payments under the Mortgage Loan when due, including the entire remaining principal balance on the maturity date (or on or after the first date on which payment may be made without payment of a yield maintenance charge or prepayment penalty) or, if the Mortgage Loan is an ARD Loan, the entire principal balance outstanding on the Anticipated Repayment Date, and if the Mortgage Loan permits partial releases of real property in connection with partial Defeasance, the revenues from the collateral will be sufficient to pay all such scheduled payments calculated on a principal amount equal to a specified percentage at least equal to the lesser of (a) 110% of the allocated loan amount for the real property to be released and (b) the outstanding principal balance of the Mortgage Loan; (iv) the Mortgagor is required to provide a certification from an independent certified public accountant that the collateral is sufficient to make all scheduled payments under the Mortgage Note as set forth inclause (iii) above; (v) if the Mortgagor would continue to own assets in addition to the defeasance collateral, the portion of the Mortgage Loan secured by Defeasance collateral is required to be assumed (or the Mortgagee may require such assumption) by a Single-Purpose Entity; (vi) the Mortgagor is required to provide an opinion of counsel that the Mortgagee has a perfected security interest in such collateral prior to any other claim or interest; and (vii) the Mortgagor is required to pay all rating agency fees associated with Defeasance (if rating confirmation is a specific condition precedent thereto) and all other reasonable expenses associated with Defeasance, including, but not limited to, accountant’s fees and opinions of counsel.

 

(33)Fixed Interest Rates. Each Mortgage Loan bears interest at a rate that remains fixed throughout the remaining term of such Mortgage Loan, except in the case of ARD loans and situations where default interest is imposed.

 

(34)Ground Leases. For purposes of the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement, a “Ground Lease” shall mean a lease creating a leasehold estate in real property where the fee owner as the ground lessor conveys for a term or terms of years its entire interest in the land (or, with respect to air rights leases, the air) and buildings and other improvements, if any, comprising the premises demised under such lease to the ground lessee (who may, in certain circumstances, own the building and improvements on the land), subject to the reversionary interest of the ground lessor as fee owner and does not include industrial development agency or similar leases for purposes of conferring a tax abatement or other benefit.

 

2-13
 

 

With respect to any Mortgage Loan where the Mortgage Loan is secured by a leasehold estate under a Ground Lease in whole or in part, and the related Mortgage does not also encumber the related lessor’s fee interest in such Mortgaged Property, based upon the terms of the Ground Lease and any estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor in favor of Seller, its successors and assigns, Seller represents and warrants that:

 

(a)The Ground Lease or a memorandum regarding such Ground Lease has been duly recorded or submitted for recordation in a form that is acceptable for recording in the applicable jurisdiction. The Ground Lease or an estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor permits the interest of the lessee to be encumbered by the related Mortgage and does not restrict the use of the related Mortgaged Property by such lessee, its successors or assigns in a manner that would materially adversely affect the security provided by the related Mortgage;

 

(b)The lessor under such Ground Lease has agreed in a writing included in the related Mortgage File (or in such Ground Lease) that the Ground Lease may not be amended or modified, or canceled or terminated by agreement of lessor and lessee, without the prior written consent of the lender, and no such consent has been granted by the Seller since the origination of the Mortgage Loan except as reflected in any written instruments which are included in the related Mortgage File;

 

(c)The Ground Lease has an original term (or an original termplus one or more optional renewal terms, which, under all circumstances, may be exercised, and will be enforceable, by either Mortgagor or the Mortgagee) that extends not less than twenty (20) years beyond the stated maturity of the related Mortgage Loan, or ten (10) years past the stated maturity if such Mortgage Loan fully amortizes by the stated maturity (or with respect to a Mortgage Loan that accrues on an actual 360 basis, substantially amortizes);

 

(d)The Ground Lease either (i) is not subject to any liens or encumbrances superior to, or of equal priority with, the Mortgage, except for the related fee interest of the ground lessor and the Permitted Encumbrances, or (ii) is subject to a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement to which the Mortgagee on the lessor’s fee interest in the Mortgaged Property is subject;

 

(e)The Ground Lease does not place commercially unreasonable restrictions on the identity of the Mortgagee and the Ground Lease is assignable (including pursuant to foreclosure) to the holder of the Mortgage Loan and its successors and assigns without the consent of the lessor thereunder, and in the event it is so assigned, it is further assignable by the holder of the Mortgage Loan and its successors and assigns without the consent of the lessor;

 

(f)Seller has not received any written notice of material default under or notice of termination of such Ground Lease. To Seller’s knowledge, there is no material default under such Ground Lease and no condition that, but for the passage of time or giving of notice, would result in a material default under the terms of such

 

2-14
 

 

 Ground Lease and to Seller’s knowledge, such Ground Lease is in full force and effect as of the Closing Date;

 

(g)The Ground Lease or ancillary agreement between the lessor and the lessee requires the lessor to give to the lender written notice of any default, and provides that no notice of default or termination is effective against the lender unless such notice is given to the lender;

 

(h)A lender is permitted a reasonable opportunity (including, where necessary, sufficient time to gain possession of the interest of the lessee under the Ground Lease through legal proceedings) to cure any default under the Ground Lease which is curable after the lender’s receipt of notice of any default before the lessor may terminate the Ground Lease;

 

(i)The Ground Lease does not impose any restrictions on subletting that would be viewed as commercially unreasonable by Seller in connection with loans originated for securitization;

 

(j)Under the terms of the Ground Lease, an estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor and the related Mortgage (taken together), any related insurance proceeds or the portion of the condemnation award allocable to the ground lessee’s interest (other than (i) de minimis amounts for minor casualties or (ii) in respect of a total or substantially total loss or taking as addressed inclause (k) below) will be applied either to the repair or to restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property with (so long as such proceeds are in excess of the threshold amount specified in the related Mortgage Loan documents) the lender or a trustee appointed by it having the right to hold and disburse such proceeds as repair or restoration progresses, or to the payment of the outstanding principal balance of the Mortgage Loan, together with any accrued interest;

 

(k)In the case of a total or substantially total taking or loss, under the terms of the Ground Lease, an estoppel or other agreement and the related Mortgage (taken together), any related insurance proceeds, or portion of the condemnation award allocable to ground lessee’s interest in respect of a total or substantially total loss or taking of the related Mortgaged Property to the extent not applied to restoration, will be applied first to the payment of the outstanding principal balance of the Mortgage Loan, together with any accrued interest; and

 

(l)Provided that the lender cures any defaults which are susceptible to being cured, the ground lessor has agreed to enter into a new lease with lender upon termination of the Ground Lease for any reason, including rejection of the Ground Lease in a bankruptcy proceeding.

To Seller’s knowledge, there is (a) no material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration existing under the related Mortgage Loan, or (b) no event (other than payments due but not yet delinquent) which, with the passage of time or with notice and the expiration of any grace or cure period, would constitute a material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration, which default, breach, violation or event of acceleration, in the case of eitherclause (a) orclause (b), materially and adversely affects the value of the Mortgage Loan or the value, use or operation of the related Mortgaged Property,provided, that this representation and warranty does not cover any default, breach, violation or event of acceleration that specifically pertains to or arises out of an exception scheduled to any other representation and warranty made by Seller in thisExhibit 2. No person other than the holder of such Mortgage Loan may declare any event of default under the Mortgage Loan or accelerate any indebtedness under the Mortgage Loan documents.

 

(38)Bankruptcy. As of the date of origination of the related Mortgage Loan and to the Seller’s knowledge as of the Cut-off Date, neither the Mortgaged Property (other than any tenants of such Mortgaged Property), nor any portion thereof, is the subject of, and no Mortgagor, guarantor or tenant occupying a single-tenant property is a debtor in state or federal bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding.

 

(39)Organization of Mortgagor. With respect to each Mortgage Loan, in reliance on certified copies of the organizational documents of the Mortgagor delivered by the Mortgagor in connection with the origination of such Mortgage Loan, the Mortgagor 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. Except with respect to any Crossed Mortgage Loan, no Mortgage Loan has a Mortgagor that is an Affiliate of another Mortgagor.

2-16
 

 

 previous ESA was prepared), and such ESA (i) did not identify the existence of Recognized Environmental Conditions (as such term is defined in ASTM E1527-05 or its successor, hereinafter “Environmental Condition”) at the related Mortgaged Property or the need for further investigation, or (ii) if the existence of an Environmental Condition or need for further investigation was indicated in any such ESA, then at least one of the following statements is true: (A) an amount reasonably estimated by a reputable environmental consultant to be sufficient to cover the estimated cost to cure any material noncompliance with applicable Environmental Laws or the Environmental Condition has been escrowed by the related Mortgagor and is held or controlled by the related lender; (B) if the only Environmental Condition relates to the presence of asbestos-containing materials, radon in indoor air, lead based paint or lead in drinking water, the only recommended action in the ESA is the institution of such a plan, an operations or maintenance plan has been required to be instituted by the related Mortgagor that can reasonably be expected to mitigate the identified risk; (C) the Environmental Condition identified in the related environmental report was remediated, abated or contained in all material respects prior to the date hereof, and, if and as appropriate, a no further action, completion or closure letter or its equivalent, was obtained from the applicable governmental regulatory authority (or the Environmental Condition affecting the related Mortgaged Property was otherwise listed by such governmental authority as “closed” or a reputable environmental consultant has concluded that no further action or investigation is required); (D) an environmental policy or a lender’s pollution legal liability insurance policy that covers liability for the Environmental Condition was obtained from an insurer rated no less than “A-” (or the equivalent) by Moody’s, S&P and/or Fitch; (E) a party not related to the Mortgagor was identified as the responsible party for the Environmental Condition and such responsible party has financial resources reasonably estimated to be adequate to address the situation; or (F) a party related to the Mortgagor having financial resources reasonably estimated to be adequate to address the situation is required to take action.

(41)Appraisal. The Mortgage File contains an appraisal of the related Mortgaged Property with an appraisal date within six (6) months of the Mortgage Loan origination date, and within twelve (12) months of the Closing Date. The appraisal is signed by an appraiser who is a Member of the Appraisal Institute (“MAI”) and that (i) was engaged directly by the originator of the Mortgage Loan or Seller, or a correspondent or agent of the originator of the Mortgage Loan or Seller, and (ii) to Seller’s knowledge, had no interest, direct or indirect, in the Mortgaged Property or the Mortgagor or in any loan made on the security thereof, and whose compensation is not affected by the approval or disapproval of the Mortgage Loan. Each appraiser has represented in such appraisal or in a supplemental letter that the appraisal satisfies the requirements of the “Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice” as adopted by the Appraisal Standards Board of the Appraisal Foundation.

 

(42)Mortgage Loan Schedule. The information pertaining to each Mortgage Loan which is set forth in the Mortgage Loan Schedule attached as an exhibit to the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement is true and correct in all material respects as of the Cut-off Date and

 

2-17
 

 

 contains all information required by the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to be contained therein.

 

(43)Cross-Collateralization. No Mortgage Loan is cross-collateralized or cross-defaulted with any other Mortgage Loan that is outside the Trust, except as set forth onSchedule 2-B of thisExhibit 2.

 

(44)Advance of Funds by Seller. After origination, no advance of funds has been made by Seller to the related Mortgagor other than in accordance with the Mortgage Loan documents, and, to Seller’s knowledge, no funds have been received from any person other than the related Mortgagor or an affiliate for, or on account of, payments due on the Mortgage Loan (other than as contemplated by the Mortgage Loan documents, such as, by way of example and not in limitation of the foregoing, amounts paid by the tenant(s) into a lender-controlled lockbox if required or contemplated under the related lease or Mortgage Loan documents). Neither Seller nor any affiliate thereof has any obligation to make any capital contribution to any Mortgagor under a Mortgage Loan, other than contributions made on or prior to the date hereof.

 

(45)Compliance with Anti-Money Laundering Laws. Seller has complied in all material respects with all applicable anti-money laundering laws and regulations, including without limitation the USA Patriot Act of 2001 with respect to the origination of the Mortgage Loan, the failure to comply with which would have a material adverse effect on the Mortgage Loan.

 

For purposes of these representations and warranties, the phrases “the Seller’s knowledge” or “the Seller’s belief” and other words and phrases of like import shall mean, except where otherwise expressly set forth herein, the actual state of knowledge or belief of the Seller, its officers and employees directly responsible for the underwriting, origination, servicing or sale of the Mortgage Loans regarding the matters expressly set forth herein.
