This Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement (“Agreement”), dated as of August 1, 2019, is between Citigroup Commercial Mortgage Securities Inc., a Delaware corporation, as purchaser (the “Purchaser”), and Citi Real Estate Funding Inc., a New York corporation, as seller (the “Seller”).

Capitalized terms used in this Agreement and not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, dated as of August 1, 2019 (the “Pooling and Servicing Agreement”), between the Purchaser, as depositor (in such capacity, the “Depositor”), Midland Loan Services, a Division of PNC Bank, National Association (“Midland”), as master servicer (in such capacity, the “Master Servicer”), Midland, Pacific Life Insurance Company (solely with respect to the Woodlands Mall Loan Combination), and Trimont Real Estate Advisors, LLC (solely with respect to The Centre Loan Combination), each as a special servicer (each, with respect to the applicable Mortgage Loan(s) and/or Loan Combination(s), the “Special Servicer”), Pentalpha Surveillance, LLC, as operating advisor (in such capacity, the “Operating Advisor”) and asset representations reviewer (in such capacity, the “Asset Representations Reviewer”), Citibank, N.A., as certificate administrator (the “Certificate Administrator”), and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), pursuant to which the Purchaser will transfer the Mortgage Loans (as defined herein), together with certain other commercial and multifamily mortgage loans (collectively, the “Other Loans”), to a trust fund and certificates representing ownership interests in the Mortgage Loans and the Other Loans will be issued by the trust fund (the “Trust Fund”). In exchange for the Mortgage Loans and the Other Loans, the Trust Fund will issue, to or at the direction of the Depositor, certificates to be known as Benchmark 2019-B12 Mortgage Trust, Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2019-B12 (collectively, the “Certificates”). For purposes of this Agreement, “Mortgage Loans” refers to the mortgage loans listed onExhibit A to this Agreement (including as reflected in the footnotes to such exhibit) and “Mortgaged Properties” refers to the properties securing such Mortgage Loans.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, two of the Mortgage Loans are part of the same Loan Combination and secured by the Mortgaged Property identified onExhibit A hereto as “The Centre”. One of those Mortgage Loans is evidenced by a Mortgage Note identified as promissory note A-1 in the original principal amount of $30,000,000 (“The Centre Note A-1 Loan”), and the other such Mortgage Loan is evidenced by a Mortgage Note identified as promissory note B-1 in the original principal amount of $70,000,000 (“The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan”).

The Purchaser and the Seller wish to prescribe the manner of sale of the Mortgage Loans from the Seller to the Purchaser and in consideration of the premises and the mutual agreements hereinafter set forth, agree as follows:

SECTION 1       Sale and Conveyance of Mortgages; Possession of Mortgage File. The Seller does hereby sell, transfer, assign, set over and convey to the Purchaser, without recourse, representation or warranty (except as otherwise specifically set forth herein), subject to the rights of the holders of interests in any related Companion Loan (other than The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan), all of its right, title and interest in and to the Mortgage Loans secured by the Mortgaged Properties identified onExhibit A to this Agreement (the “Mortgage Loan Schedule”), including all interest and principal received or receivable on or with respect to

    

 

 

the Mortgage Loans after the Cut-Off Date (and, in any event, excluding payments of principal and interest and other amounts due and payable on the Mortgage Loans on or before the Cut-Off Date and excluding any Retained Defeasance Rights and Obligations with respect to the Mortgage Loans).

Upon the sale of the Mortgage Loans, the ownership of each related Note, the Seller’s interest in the related Mortgage represented by the Note and the other contents of the related Mortgage File (subject to the rights of the holders of interests in any related Companion Loan (other than The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan)) will be vested in the Purchaser and immediately thereafter the Trustee, and the ownership of records and documents with respect to each Mortgage Loan (other than those to be held by the holder of any related Companion Loan (other than The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan)) prepared by or which come into the possession of the Seller shall (subject to the rights of the holders of interests in any related Companion Loan (other than The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan)) immediately vest in the Purchaser and immediately thereafter the Trustee. In connection with the transfer pursuant to this Section 1 of any Mortgage Loan that is part of a Loan Combination, the Seller does hereby assign to the Purchaser all of its rights, title and interest (solely in its capacity as the holder of the subject Mortgage Loan) in, to and under the related Co-Lender Agreement (it being understood and agreed that the Seller does not assign any right, title or interest that it or any other party may have thereunder in its capacity as the holder of any related Companion Loan (other than The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan), if applicable). The Seller’s assignment of any Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan is subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable Outside Servicing Agreement and the related Co-Lender Agreement. The Purchaser will sell: (i) certain classes of the Certificates (the “Public Certificates”), excluding the VRR Interest, to the underwriters (the “Underwriters”) specified in the Underwriting Agreement, dated as of July 19, 2019 (the “Underwriting Agreement”), between the Purchaser and the Underwriters, (ii) certain classes of the Certificates (the “Private Certificates”), excluding the VRR Interest, to the initial purchasers (the “Initial Purchasers”) specified in the Purchase Agreement, dated as of July 19, 2019 (the “Certificate Purchase Agreement”), between the Purchaser and the Initial Purchasers, and (iii) certain classes of the Certificates (the “Centre Loan-Specific Certificates”), to the initial purchaser (the “Centre Initial Purchaser” and, collectively with the Underwriters and the Initial Purchasers, the “Dealers”) specified in the Purchase Agreement dated as of July 19, 2019 (the “Centre Loan-Specific Purchase Agreement”), between the Purchaser and the Centre Initial Purchaser.

The sale and conveyance of the Mortgage Loans is being conducted on an arms-length basis and upon commercially reasonable terms. As the consideration for the Mortgage Loans, the Purchaser shall: (i) pay, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, to the Seller or at the Seller’s direction that sum set forth in the funding schedule executed by the Seller and the Purchaser relating to the sale of the Mortgage Loans contemplated hereby (but subject to certain post-settlement adjustments for expenses incurred by the Underwriters and the Initial Purchasers on behalf of the Depositor and for which the Seller is specifically responsible); and (ii) deliver or cause the delivery of Class VRR Certificates (registered in the name of the Seller) with a $9,744,358 initial aggregate Certificate Balance and representing approximately 28.6% of the VRR Interest (by Certificate Balance), to the Certificate Administrator to be held in the Retained Interest Safekeeping Account on behalf of the Seller in accordance with the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

(e)                Pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, the Enforcing Servicer is required to determine whether any such Document Defect or Breach with respect to any Mortgage Loan materially and adversely affects, or such Document Defect is deemed in accordance with Section 2.03 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to materially and adversely affect, the value of the Mortgage Loan, the value of the related Mortgaged Property (or any related REO Property) or the interests of the Trustee or any Certificateholder in the related Mortgage Loan or the related Mortgaged Property (or any related REO Property) or causes any Mortgage Loan to fail to be a Qualified Mortgage (any such Document Defect shall constitute a “Material Document Defect” and any such Breach shall constitute a “Material Breach”; and a Material Breach and/or a Material Document Defect, as the case may be, shall constitute a “Material Defect”). If such Document Defect or Breach has been determined to be a Material Defect, then the Enforcing Servicer will be required to give prompt written notice thereof to the Seller, demanding that the Seller cure such Material Defect. Promptly upon becoming aware of any such Material Defect (including, without limitation, through a written notice given by any party to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, as provided above if the Document Defect or Breach identified therein is a Material Defect), the Seller shall, not later than 90 days from the earlier of the Seller’s (x) discovery of, and (y) receipt of notice of and receipt of a demand to take action with respect to such Material Defect (or, in the case of a Material Defect relating to a Mortgage Loan not being a Qualified Mortgage, not later than 90 days from any party discovering such Material Defect), cure the same in all material respects (which cure shall include payment of any losses and Additional Trust Fund Expenses associated therewith (including, if applicable, the amount of any fees of the Asset Representations Reviewer payable pursuant to Section 5(j) above attributable to the Asset Review of such Mortgage Loan)) or, if such Material Defect cannot be cured within such 90-day period, the Seller shall (before the end of such 90-day period) either: (i) repurchase the affected Mortgage Loan or any related REO Property (or the Trust Fund’s interest therein) at the applicable Purchase Price by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the Collection Account; or (ii) substitute a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan for such affected Mortgage Loan (provided that in no event shall any such substitution occur later than the second anniversary of the Closing Date and in no event shall any substitution be effected with respect to The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan) and pay the Master Servicer, for deposit into the Collection Account, any Substitution Shortfall Amount in connection therewith;provided, that the Seller may not repurchase The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan without repurchasing The Centre Note A-1 Loan (so long as there is a Material Defect with respect to each such Mortgage Loan); andprovided,however, that if (i) such Material Defect is capable of being cured but not within such 90-day period, (ii) such Material Defect is not related to any Mortgage Loan’s not being a Qualified Mortgage and (iii) the Seller has commenced and is diligently proceeding with the cure of such Material Defect within such 90-day period, then the Seller shall have an additional 90 days to complete such cure (or, in

 - 13 - 

 

 

the event of a failure to so cure, to complete such repurchase of the related Mortgage Loan or substitute a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan as described above) it being understood and agreed that, in connection with the Seller’s receiving such additional 90-day period, the Seller shall deliver an Officer’s Certificate to the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer and the Certificate Administrator setting forth the reasons such Material Defect is not capable of being cured within the initial 90-day period and what actions the Seller is pursuing in connection with the cure thereof and stating that the Seller anticipates that such Material Defect will be cured within such additional 90-day period; andprovided,further, that, if any such Material Defect is still not cured after the initial 90-day period and any such additional 90-day period solely due to the failure of the Seller to have received the recorded document, then the Seller shall be entitled to continue to defer its cure, repurchase and/or substitution obligations in respect of such Material Defect so long as the Seller certifies to the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer and the Certificate Administrator every 30 days thereafter that the Material Defect is still in effect solely because of its failure to have received the recorded document and that the Seller is diligently pursuing the cure of such defect (specifying the actions being taken), except that no such deferral of cure, repurchase or substitution may continue beyond the date that is 18 months following the Closing Date. Any such repurchase or substitution of a Mortgage Loan shall be on a whole loan, servicing released basis. The Seller shall have no obligation to monitor the Mortgage Loans regarding the existence of a Breach or a Document Defect, but if the Seller discovers a Material Defect with respect to a Mortgage Loan, it will notify the Purchaser. Monthly Payments due with respect to each Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan (if any) after the related Due Date in the month of substitution, and Monthly Payments due with respect to each Mortgage Loan being repurchased or replaced after the related Cut-Off Date and received by the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer on behalf of the Trust on or prior to the related date of repurchase or substitution, shall be part of the Trust Fund. Monthly Payments due with respect to each Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan (if any) on or prior to the related Due Date in the month of substitution, and Monthly Payments due with respect to each Mortgage Loan being repurchased or replaced and received by the Master Servicer or the Special Servicer on behalf of the Trust after the related date of repurchase or substitution, shall not be part of the Trust Fund and shall be required, under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, to be remitted by the Master Servicer to the Seller promptly following receipt. From and after the date of substitution, each Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan, if any, that has been substituted shall be deemed to constitute a “Mortgage Loan” hereunder for all purposes. No mortgage loan may be substituted for a Defective Mortgage Loan as contemplated by thisSection 6(e) if the Mortgage Loan to be replaced was itself a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan that had replaced a prior Mortgage Loan, in which case, absent a cure (including by the making of a Loss of Value Payment pursuant to the following paragraph) of the relevant Material Defect, the affected Mortgage Loan will be required to be repurchased.

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of thisSection 6(e), in lieu of the Seller performing its obligations with respect to any Material Defect as set forth in the preceding paragraph, to the extent that the Seller and the Enforcing Servicer (subject to the consent of the Controlling Class Representative so long as the Controlling Class Representative is the applicable Directing Holder or, in the case of The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan, subject to the consent of the Centre Controlling Class Representative so long as the Centre Controlling Class Representative is the applicable Directing Holder) as provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, are able to agree upon a cash payment payable by the Seller to the Purchaser or the Trust, as applicable, that would be deemed sufficient to compensate the Purchaser or the Trust, as

 - 14 - 

 

 

applicable, for a Material Defect (a “Loss of Value Payment”), the Seller may elect, in its sole discretion, to pay such Loss of Value Payment to the Purchaser or the Trust, as applicable;provided that a Material Defect as a result of a Mortgage Loan not constituting a Qualified Mortgage, may not be cured by a Loss of Value Payment; andprovided,further, that the Loss of Value Payment shall include the portion of any Liquidation Fees payable to the Special Servicer in respect of such Loss of Value Payment and the portion of fees of the Asset Representations Reviewer attributable to any Asset Review of such Mortgage Loan. Upon its making a Loss of Value Payment, the Seller shall be deemed to have cured the subject Material Defect in all respects. Provided that such Loss of Value Payment is made, this paragraph describes the sole remedy available to the Purchaser or the Trust, as applicable, and its assignees regarding any such Material Defect, and the Seller shall not be obligated to repurchase or replace the affected Mortgage Loan or otherwise cure such Material Defect. This paragraph is intended to apply only to a mutual agreement or settlement between the Seller and the Enforcing Servicer,provided that, prior to any such agreement or settlement, nothing in this paragraph shall preclude the Seller or the Enforcing Servicer, from exercising any of its rights related to a Material Defect in the manner and within the time frames set forth in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement or thisSection 6(e) (excluding this paragraph) (including any right to cure, repurchase or substitute for a Mortgage Loan).

If (x) a Mortgage Loan is to be repurchased or replaced as described above (a “Defective Mortgage Loan”), (y) such Defective Mortgage Loan is part of a Cross-Collateralized Group and (z) the applicable Document Defect or Breach does not constitute a Material Defect as to the other Mortgage Loan(s) that are a part of such Cross-Collateralized Group (the “Other Crossed 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 Defect as to each such Other Crossed Loan for purposes of the above provisions, and the Seller shall be obligated to repurchase or replace each such Other Crossed Loan in accordance with the provisions above unless, in the case of such Breach or Document Defect, as applicable:

(A)   the Seller (at its expense) delivers or causes to be delivered to the Trustee, the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such Seller’s repurchase or replacement of only those Mortgage Loans as to which a Material Defect has actually occurred without regard to the provisions of this paragraph (the “Affected Loan(s)”) and the operation of the remaining provisions of thisSection 6(e) (i) will not cause any Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC or cause the Grantor Trust to fail to qualify as a grantor trust under subpart E, part I of subchapter J of the Code for federal income tax purposes at any time that any Certificate is outstanding and (ii) will not result in the imposition of a tax upon any Trust REMIC or the Trust Fund (including but not limited to the tax on “prohibited transactions” as defined in Section 860F(a)(2) of the Code and the tax on contributions to a REMIC set forth in Section 860G(d) of the Code); and

(B)   each of the following conditions would be satisfied if the Seller were to repurchase or replace only the Affected Loans and not the Other Crossed Loans:

(1)    the debt service coverage ratio for such Other Crossed Loan(s) (excluding the Affected Loan(s)) for the four calendar quarters immediately preceding the repurchase or replacement is not less than the lesser of

 - 15 - 

 

 

(A) 0.10x below the debt service coverage ratio for the Cross-Collateralized Group (including the Affected Loan(s)) set forth inAnnex A to the Prospectus and (B) the debt service coverage ratio for the Cross-Collateralized Group (including the Affected Loan(s)) for the four preceding calendar quarters preceding the repurchase or replacement;

(2)    the loan-to-value ratio for the Other Crossed Loans (excluding the Affected Loan(s)) is not greater than the greatest of (A) the loan-to-value ratio, expressed as a whole number percentage (taken to one decimal place), for the Cross-Collateralized Group (including the Affected Loan(s)) set forth inAnnex A to the Prospectusplus 10%, (B) the loan-to-value ratio, expressed as a whole number percentage (taken to one decimal place), for the Cross-Collateralized Group (including the Affected Loan(s)) at the time of repurchase or replacement and (C) 75%; and

(3)    either (x) the exercise of remedies against the Primary Collateral of any Mortgage Loan in the Cross-Collateralized Group will not impair the ability to exercise remedies against the Primary Collateral of the other Mortgage Loans in the Cross-Collateralized Group or (y) the Loan Documents evidencing and securing the relevant Mortgage Loans have been modified in a manner that complies with this Agreement and the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and that removes any threat of impairment of the ability to exercise remedies against the Primary Collateral of the other Mortgage Loans in the Cross-Collateralized Group as a result of the exercise of remedies against the Primary Collateral of any Mortgage Loan in the Cross-Collateralized Group.

The determination of the Enforcing Servicer as to whether the conditions set forth above have been satisfied shall be conclusive and binding in the absence of manifest error on the Certificateholders, other parties to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and the Seller. The Enforcing Servicer will be entitled to cause to be delivered, or direct the Seller to (in which case the Seller shall) cause to be delivered, to the Enforcing Servicer an Appraisal of any or all of the related Mortgaged Properties for purposes of determining whether the condition set forth inclause (B)(2) above has been satisfied, in each case at the expense of the Seller if the scope and cost of the Appraisal is approved by the Seller and, prior to the occurrence and continuance of a Control Termination Event, the Controlling Class Representative (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld in each case).

With respect to any Defective Mortgage Loan that forms a part of a Cross-Collateralized Group and as to which the conditions described in the second preceding paragraph are satisfied, such that the Trust Fund will continue to hold the Other Crossed Loans, the Seller and the Depositor agree to forbear from enforcing any remedies against the other’s Primary Collateral but each is permitted to exercise remedies against the Primary Collateral securing its respective Mortgage Loans, including with respect to the Trustee, the Primary Collateral securing the Affected Loan(s) still held by the Trust Fund. If the exercise of remedies by one such party would impair the ability of the other such party to exercise its remedies with respect to the Primary Collateral securing the Affected Loan or the Other Crossed Loans, as the case may be, held by the

 - 16 - 

 

 

other such party, then both parties shall forbear from exercising such remedies unless and until the Loan Documents evidencing and securing the relevant Mortgage Loans can be modified in a manner that complies with this 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 any of the Mortgage Loans that form a Cross-Collateralized Group shall be allocated between such Mortgage Loans in accordance with the related Loan Documents, or otherwise on apro rata basis based upon their outstanding Stated Principal Balances. All other terms of the Mortgage Loans shall remain in full force and effect, without any modification thereof. The provisions of this paragraph shall be binding on all future holders of each Mortgage Loan that forms part of a Cross-Collateralized Group.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement provides that, to the extent necessary and appropriate, the Master Servicer or Special Servicer, as applicable, will execute (pursuant to a limited power of attorney provided by the Trustee who will not be liable for any misuse of any such power of attorney by the Master Servicer or Special Servicer, as applicable, or any of its agents or subcontractors) the modification of the Loan Documents that complies with this Agreement to remove the threat of impairment of the ability of the Seller or the Trust Fund to exercise its remedies with respect to the Primary Collateral securing the Mortgage Loan(s) held by such party resulting from the exercise of remedies by the other such party. All costs and expenses incurred by the Trustee, the Special Servicer and the Master Servicer with respect to any Cross-Collateralized Group pursuant to this paragraph and the first, second and third preceding paragraphs shall be advanced by the Master Servicer as provided for in Section 2.03(a) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, and such advances and interest thereon shall be included in the calculation of Purchase Price for the Affected Loan(s) to be repurchased or replaced.

Subject to the Seller’s right to cure set forth above in this Section 6(e), and further subject to Sections 2.01(b) and 2.01(c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, failure of the Seller to deliver the documents referred to in clauses (1), (2), (7), (8) and (18) in the definition of “Mortgage File” in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement in accordance with this Agreement and the Pooling and Servicing Agreement for any Mortgage Loan shall be deemed a Material Document Defect;provided,however, that no Document Defect (except such deemed Material Document Defect described above) shall be considered to be a Material Document Defect unless the document with respect to which the Document Defect exists is required in connection with an imminent enforcement of the lender’s rights or remedies under the related Mortgage Loan, defending any claim asserted by any Mortgagor or third party with respect to the Mortgage Loan, establishing the validity or priority of any lien on any collateral securing the Mortgage Loan or for any immediate significant servicing obligation.

Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, if a Mortgage Loan is not secured by a Mortgaged Property that is, in whole or in part, a hotel, restaurant (operated by a Mortgagor), healthcare facility, nursing home, assisted living facility, self-storage facility, theater or fitness center (operated by a Mortgagor), then the failure to deliver copies of the UCC financing statements with respect to such Mortgage Loan shall not be a Material Defect.

If there is a Material Defect with respect to one or more Mortgaged Properties securing a Mortgage Loan, the Seller shall not be obligated to repurchase such Mortgage Loan if (i) the affected Mortgaged Property(ies) may be released pursuant to the terms of any partial

 - 17 - 

 

 

release provisions in the related Loan Documents (and such Mortgaged Property(ies) are, in fact, released), (ii) the remaining Mortgaged Property(ies) satisfy the requirements, if any, set forth in the related Loan Documents and the Seller provides an opinion of counsel to the effect that such release would not (A) cause any Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC or (B) result in the imposition of a tax upon any Trust REMIC or the Trust and (iii) each Rating Agency has provided a Rating Agency Confirmation.

(f)                 In connection with any repurchase or substitution of one or more Mortgage Loans pursuant to thisSection 6, the Pooling and Servicing Agreement shall provide that the Trustee, the Certificate Administrator, the Custodian, the Master Servicer and the Special Servicer shall each tender to the repurchasing entity, upon delivery to each of them of a receipt executed by the repurchasing entity evidencing such repurchase or substitution, all portions of the Mortgage File (including, without limitation, the Servicing File) and other documents and all Escrow Payments and reserve funds pertaining to such Mortgage Loan possessed by it, and each document that constitutes a part of the Mortgage File shall be endorsed or assigned to the extent necessary or appropriate to the repurchasing or substituting entity or its designee in the same manner, but only if the respective documents have been previously assigned or endorsed to the Trustee, and pursuant to appropriate forms of assignment, substantially similar to the manner and forms pursuant to which such documents were previously assigned to the Trustee or as otherwise reasonably requested to effect the retransfer and reconveyance of the Mortgage Loan and the security therefor to the Seller or its designee;provided that such tender by the Trustee, the Certificate Administrator and/or the Custodian shall be conditioned upon its receipt from the Master Servicer of a Request for Release and an Officer’s Certificate to the effect that the requirements for repurchase or substitution have been satisfied. In the event a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan is substituted for a Defective Mortgage Loan by the Seller as contemplated by thisSection 6, the Seller shall deliver to the Custodian the related Mortgage File and to the Master Servicer all Escrow Payments and reserve funds pertaining to such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan possessed by it and a certification to the effect that such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan satisfies all of the requirements of the definition of “Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan” in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

If any Mortgage Loan is to be repurchased or replaced as contemplated by thisSection 6, the Seller shall amend the Mortgage Loan Schedule to reflect the removal of any deleted Mortgage Loan and, if applicable, the substitution of the related Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan(s) and deliver or cause the delivery of such amended Mortgage Loan Schedule to the parties to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement. Upon any substitution of a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan for a deleted Mortgage Loan, such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan shall become part of the Trust Fund and be subject to the terms of this Agreement in all respects.

(g)                The representations and warranties of the parties hereto shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and shall inure to the benefit of the respective parties, notwithstanding any restrictive or qualified endorsement on the Notes or Assignment of Mortgage or the examination of the Mortgage Files.

(h)                Each party hereto agrees to promptly notify the other party of any breach of a representation or warranty contained inSection 6(c) of this Agreement. The Seller’s obligation to cure any Material Defect or to repurchase, or substitute for, or make a Loss of Value Payment

 - 18 - 

 

 

with respect to, any affected Mortgage Loan pursuant to thisSection 6 shall constitute the sole remedy available to the Purchaser in connection with a breach of any of the Seller’s representations or warranties contained inSection 6(c) of this Agreement or a Document Defect with respect to any Mortgage Loan.

(i)                  The Seller shall promptly notify the Depositor if (i) the Seller receives a Repurchase Communication of a Repurchase Request (other than from the Depositor), (ii) the Seller repurchases or replaces a Mortgage Loan, (iii) the Seller receives a Repurchase Communication of a Repurchase Request Withdrawal (other than from the Depositor) or (iv) the Seller rejects or disputes any Repurchase Request. Each such notice shall be given no later than the tenth (10th) Business Day after (A) with respect to clauses (i) and (iii) of the preceding sentence, receipt of a Repurchase Communication of a Repurchase Request or a Repurchase Request Withdrawal, as applicable, and (B) with respect to clauses (ii) and (iv) of the preceding sentence, the occurrence of the event giving rise to the requirement for such notice, and shall include (1) the identity of the related Mortgage Loan and the person making the Repurchase Request, (2) the date (x) such Repurchase Communication of such Repurchase Request or Repurchase Request Withdrawal was received, (y) the related Mortgage Loan was repurchased or replaced or (z) the Repurchase Request was rejected or disputed, as applicable, and (3) if known, the basis for (x) the Repurchase Request (as asserted in the Repurchase Request) or (y) any rejection or dispute of a Repurchase Request, as applicable.

The Seller shall provide to the Depositor and the Certificate Administrator the Seller’s “Central Index Key” number assigned by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) and a true, correct and complete copy of the relevant portions of any Form ABS-15G that the Seller is required to file with the Commission under Rule 15Ga-1 under the Exchange Act with respect 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.

In addition, the Seller shall provide the Depositor, upon request, such other information in its possession as would permit the Depositor to comply with its obligations under Rule 15Ga-1 under the Exchange Act to disclose fulfilled and unfulfilled repurchase requests. Any such information requested shall be provided as promptly as practicable after such request is made.

The Seller agrees that no Rule 15Ga-1 Notice Provider will be required to provide information in a Rule 15Ga-1 Notice that is protected by the attorney-client privilege or attorney work product doctrines. In addition, the Seller hereby acknowledges that (i) any Rule 15Ga-1 Notice provided pursuant to Section 2.03(a) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement is so provided only to assist the Seller, the Depositor 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 Rule 15Ga-1 Notice Provider and (B) no information provided pursuant to Section 2.03(a) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement by a Rule 15Ga-1 Notice Provider shall be deemed to constitute a waiver or defense to the exercise of any legal right the Rule 15Ga-1 Notice Provider may have with respect to this Agreement, including with respect to any Repurchase Request that is the subject of a Rule 15Ga-1 Notice.

 - 19 - 

 

 

Each party hereto agrees that the receipt of a Rule 15Ga-1 Notice or the delivery of any notice required to be delivered pursuant to thisSection 6(i) shall not, in and of itself, constitute delivery of notice of, receipt of notice of, or knowledge of the Seller of, any Material Defect.

The Servicing Fee Rate with respect to The Centre Trust Subordinate Companion Loan is 0.00250% per annum (0.00125% per annum for master servicer and 0.00125% per annum for primary servicer). The Servicing Fee Rate with respect to each The Centre Pari Passu Companion Loan is 0.00125% per annum.

 

 

 

EXHIBIT B-1

MORTGAGE LOAN REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES (OTHER THAN THE CENTRE SUBORDINATE COMPANION LOAN)

(1)Whole Loan; Ownership of Mortgage Loans. Except with respect to a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Loan Combination, each Mortgage Loan is a whole loan and not a participation interest in a Mortgage Loan. Each Mortgage Loan that is part of a Loan Combination is a portion of a whole loan evidenced by a Mortgage Note. 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 the Seller or, with respect to any Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan, to the trustee for the related Other Securitization Trust), participation or pledge, and the 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. The 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)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 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 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 Loan Documents, including, without limitation, any such valid offset, defense, counterclaim or right based on intentional fraud by the 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 Loan Documents.

 B-1-1 

 

 

(3)Mortgage Provisions. The Loan Documents for each Mortgage Loan contain provisions that render the rights and remedies of the holder thereof adequate for the practical realization against the Mortgaged Property of the principal benefits of the security intended to be provided thereby, including realization by judicial or, if applicable, non-judicial foreclosure 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 or as otherwise provided in the related Loan Documents (a) the material terms of such Mortgage, Mortgage Note, Mortgage Loan guaranty, and related Loan Documents have not been waived, impaired, modified, altered, satisfied, canceled, subordinated or rescinded in any respect; (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. With respect to each Mortgage Loan, except as contained in a written document included in the Mortgage File, there have been no modifications, amendments or waivers, that could be reasonably expected to have a material adverse effect on such Mortgage Loan consented to by the Seller on or after July 9, 2019.
(5)Lien; Valid Assignment. Subject to the Standard Qualifications, each assignment of Mortgage and assignment of Assignment of Leases to the Trust (or, with respect to an Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan, to the related Outside Trustee) constitutes a legal, valid and binding assignment to the Trust (or, with respect to an Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan, to the related Outside Trustee). 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 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 onExhibit C (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 the 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 (which lien secures the related Loan Combination, in the case of a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Loan Combination), except those which are bonded over, escrowed for or insured against by a lender’s title insurance policy (as described below), and, to the 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

 B-1-2 

 

 

  other than the filing of Uniform Commercial Code (“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 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 secures the related Loan Combination, in the case of a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Loan Combination), 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 is cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted with another Mortgage Loan (each a “Crossed Mortgage Loan”), the lien of the Mortgage for another Mortgage Loan that is cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted with such Crossed Mortgage Loan,provided that none of which 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 and no claims have been made by the Seller thereunder and no claims have been paid thereunder. Neither the Seller, nor to the 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 Loan, there are, as of origination, and to the 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 onExhibit B-30-1, the Seller has no knowledge of any mezzanine debt secured directly by interests in the related Mortgagor.

 B-1-3 

 

 

(8)Assignment of Leases, Rents and Profits. 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 (and, in the case of a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Loan Combination, subject to the related Assignment of Leases constituting security for the entire Loan Combination), 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 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, have been 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 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. The Seller or the originator of the Mortgage Loan inspected or caused to be inspected each related Mortgaged Property within six months of origination of the Mortgage Loan and within twelve 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 months prior to the Cut-Off Date. To the 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) any damage or deficiency that is estimated to cost less than $50,000 to repair, (ii) any deferred maintenance for which escrows were established at origination and (iii) 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.

 B-1-4 

 

 

(11)Taxes and Assessments. All taxes, governmental assessments and other outstanding governmental charges (including, without limitation, water and sewage charges), or installments thereof, that 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 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 the Seller’s knowledge as of the Cut-Off Date, there is no proceeding pending, and, to the 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 the 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 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 the 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 Loan Documents are being conveyed by the Seller to Purchaser or its servicer (or, with respect to any Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan, to the depositor or servicer for the related Other Securitization Trust).
(15)No Holdbacks. The Stated Principal Balance as of the Cut-Off Date of the Mortgage Loan set forth on the mortgage loan schedule attached asExhibit A to this Agreement 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 the Seller to merit such holdback).

 B-1-5 

 

 

(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 Loan Documents and having a claims-paying or financial strength rating meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements (as defined below), 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 endorsements as are necessary to avoid the operation of any coinsurance provisions with respect to the related Mortgaged Property.

“Insurance Ratings Requirements” means either (i) a claims paying or financial strength rating of any of the following; (a) at least “A-:VIII” from A.M. Best Company, (b) at least “A3” (or the equivalent) from Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. or (c) at least “A-” from S&P Global Ratings or (ii) the Syndicate Insurance Ratings Requirements. “Syndicate Insurance Ratings Requirements” means insurance provided by a syndicate of insurers, as to which (i) if such syndicate consists of 5 or more members, at least 60% of the coverage is provided by insurers that meet the Insurance Ratings Requirements (under clause (1) of the definition of such term) and up to 40% of the coverage is provided by insurers that have a claims paying or financial strength rating of at least “BBB-” by S&P Global Ratings or at least “Baa3” by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc., and (ii) if such syndicate consists of 4 or fewer members, at least 75% of the coverage is provided by insurers that meet the Insurance Ratings Requirements (under clause (1) of the definition of such term) and up to 25% of the coverage is provided by insurers that have a claims paying or financial strength rating of at least “BBB-” by S&P Global Ratings or at least “Baa3” by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc.

Each related Mortgaged Property is also covered, and required to be covered pursuant to the related Loan Documents, by business interruption or rental loss insurance which (subject to a customary deductible) covers a period of not less than 12 months (or with respect to each Mortgage Loan on a single asset with a principal balance of $50 million or more, 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, plus such additional excess flood coverage in an amount as is generally required by the Seller originating mortgage loans for securitization.

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

 B-1-6 

 

 

endorsement covering damage from windstorm and/or windstorm related perils and/or named storms, in an amount not less than the lesser of (1) the original principal balance of the Mortgage Loan and (2) 100% of the full insurable value on a replacement cost basis of the improvements and personalty and fixtures owned by the Mortgagor and included in the related Mortgaged Property by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements.

The Mortgaged Property is covered, and required to be covered pursuant to the related 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 either the scenario expected limit (“SEL”) or the probable maximum loss (“PML”) for the Mortgaged Property in the event of an earthquake. In such instance, the SEL or PML, as applicable, was based on a 475-year return period, an exposure period of 50 years and a 10% probability of exceedance. If the resulting report concluded that the SEL or PML, as applicable, 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 Investors Service, Inc. or “A-” by S&P Global Ratings in an amount not less than 100% of the SEL or PML, as applicable.

The 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 (or Loan Combination, if applicable), 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 (or Loan Combination, if applicable) together with any accrued interest thereon.

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 (or, in the case of a Mortgage Loan that is an Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan, the applicable Other 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 10 days’ prior notice to the lender of termination or cancellation arising because of nonpayment of a premium and at least 30 days prior notice to the lender of

 B-1-7 

 

 

termination or cancellation (or such lesser period, not less than 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 the 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 the 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 feature (except that an ARD Mortgage 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 the 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 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 permanently affixed buildings and structural components, such as wiring, plumbing

 B-1-8 

 

 

  systems and central heating and air-conditioning systems, that are integrated into such buildings, serve such buildings in their passive functions and do not produce or contribute to the production of income other than consideration for the use or occupancy of space, but excluding personal property) having a fair market value (i) at the date the Mortgage Loan (or related Loan Combination) was originated at least equal to 80% of the adjusted issue price of the Mortgage Loan (or related Loan Combination) on such date or (ii) at the Closing Date at least equal to 80% of the adjusted issue price of the Mortgage Loan (or related Loan Combination) 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 Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(a)(1)(ii)). If the Mortgage Loan was “significantly modified” prior to the Closing Date so as to result in a taxable exchange under Section 1001 of the Code, it either (x) was modified as a result of the default or reasonably foreseeable default of such Mortgage Loan or (y) satisfies the provisions of 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 Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-1(b)(2). All terms used in this paragraph shall have the same meanings as set forth in the related Treasury Regulations.
(21)Compliance with Usury 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 the 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 law or may be substituted in accordance with the Mortgage and applicable law by the related mortgagee.
(24)Local Law Compliance. To the 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 the Seller for similar

 B-1-9 

 

 

  commercial, multifamily or, if applicable, manufactured housing community mortgage loans intended for securitization, with respect to 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) constitute a legal non-conforming use or structure, as to which as the Mortgaged Property may be restored or repaired to the full extent necessary to maintain the use of the structure immediately prior to a casualty or the inability to restore or repair to the full extent necessary to maintain the use or structure immediately prior to the casualty would not materially and adversely affect the use or operation of the Mortgaged Property, (ii) are insured by the Title Policy or other insurance policy, (iii) are insured by law and ordinance insurance coverage in amounts customarily required by the Seller for loans originated for securitization that provides coverage for additional costs to rebuild and/or repair the property to current Zoning Regulations or (iv) would not have a material adverse effect on the Mortgage Loan. The terms of the 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 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 the Seller’s knowledge based upon a letter from any government authorities, zoning consultant’s report or other affirmative investigation of local law compliance consistent with the investigation conducted by the Seller for similar commercial, multifamily or, if applicable, manufactured housing community 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 Loan Documents for each Mortgage Loan provide that (a) the related Mortgagor and at least one individual or entity shall be fully liable for actual losses, liabilities, costs and damages arising from certain acts of the related Mortgagor and/or its principals specified in the related Loan Documents, which acts generally include the following: (i) acts of fraud or intentional material misrepresentation, (ii) misapplication or misappropriation of rents (if after an event of default under the Mortgage Loan), insurance proceeds or condemnation awards, (iii) intentional material physical waste of the Mortgaged Property (but, in some cases, only to the extent there is sufficient cash flow generated by the related Mortgaged Property to prevent such waste), and (iv) any breach of the environmental covenants contained in the related Loan Documents, and (b) the Mortgage Loan shall become full recourse to the related Mortgagor and at least one individual or entity, if the related Mortgagor files a voluntary petition under federal or state bankruptcy or insolvency law.
(27)Mortgage Releases. The terms of the related Mortgage or related 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)), in each case, 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)), (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 or taking by a State or any political subdivision or authority thereof. With respect to any partial release (including in connection with any partial Defeasance) 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 Code Section 860G(a)(3)(A); or (y) the mortgagee or servicer can, in accordance with the related 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 (reduced by (1) the amount of any lien on the real property that is senior to the Mortgage Loan and (2) a proportionate amount of any lien on the real property that is in parity with the Mortgage Loan) after the release is not equal to at least 80% of the principal balance of the Mortgage Loan (or Loan Combination, as applicable) 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 condemnation or 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 REMIC Provisions and, to such extent, condemnation proceeds 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 (reduced by (1) the amount of any lien on the real property that is senior to the Mortgage Loan and (2) a proportionate amount of any lien on the real property that is in parity with the Mortgage Loan) is not equal to at least 80% of the remaining principal balance of the Mortgage Loan (or Loan Combination, as applicable).

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

 B-1-11 

 

 

(28)Financial Reporting and Rent Rolls. Each Mortgage Loan 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-form 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 the 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 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, or as otherwise indicated onExhibit C;provided,however, 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 Loan Documents (without giving effect to the cost of terrorism and earthquake components of such casualty and business interruption/rental loss insurance) at such time, 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 Loan Documents (which provide for transfers without the consent of the lender which are customarily acceptable to the Seller lending on the security of property comparable to the related Mortgaged Property, including, without limitation, transfers of worn-out or obsolete furnishings,

 B-1-12 

 

 

  fixtures, or equipment promptly replaced with property of equivalent value and functionality and transfers by leases entered into in accordance with the 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 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 Loan Documents or a Person satisfying specific criteria identified in the related Loan Documents, such as a qualified equityholder, (v) transfers of stock or similar equity units in publicly traded companies, (vi) a substitution or release of collateral within the parameters of paragraphs (27) and (32) herein or the exceptions thereto set forth onExhibit C, or (vii) by reason of any mezzanine debt that existed at the origination of the related Mortgage Loan as set forth onExhibit B-30-1, or future permitted mezzanine debt in each case as set forth onExhibit B-30-2 or (b) the related Mortgaged Property is encumbered with a subordinate lien or security interest against the related Mortgaged Property, other than (i) any Companion Loan or any subordinate debt that existed at origination and is permitted under the related Loan Documents, (ii) purchase money security interests, (iii) any Crossed Mortgage Loan as set forth onExhibit B-30-3or (iv) Permitted Encumbrances. The Mortgage or other 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 Loan Documents and the organizational documents of the Mortgagor with respect to each Mortgage Loan with a Cut-Off Date Balance in excess of $5 million provide that the Mortgagor is a Single-Purpose Entity, and each Mortgage Loan with a Cut-Off Date 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 Balance equal to $5 million or less, its organizational documents or the related 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 Properties, and whose organizational documents further provide, or which entity represented in the related 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 Properties, or any indebtedness other than as permitted by the related Mortgage(s) or the other related Loan 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.

 B-1-13 

 

 

(32)Defeasance. With respect to any Mortgage Loan that, pursuant to the Loan Documents, can be defeased (a “Defeasance”), (i) the Loan Documents provide for Defeasance as a unilateral right of the Mortgagor, subject to satisfaction of conditions specified in the Loan Documents; (ii) the Mortgage Loan cannot be defeased within two 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 Mortgage Loan, the entire principal balance outstanding on the Anticipated Repayment Date (or on or after the first date on which payment may be made without payment of a yield maintenance charge or prepayment penalty), 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 Mortgage Loans and situations where default interest is imposed.
(34)Ground Leases. For purposes of this 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 (IDA) or similar leases for purposes of conferring a tax abatement or other benefit.

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

 B-1-14 

 

 

of the Ground Lease and any estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor in favor of the Seller, its successors and assigns, the 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 term plus 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 20 years beyond the stated maturity of the related Mortgage Loan, or 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 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)The Seller has not received any written notice of material default under or notice of termination of such Ground Lease. To the 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 Ground Lease and to the Seller’s knowledge, such Ground Lease is in full force and effect as of the Closing Date;

 B-1-15 

 

 

(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 the 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 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.
(35)Servicing. The servicing and collection practices used by the Seller with respect to the Mortgage Loan have been, in all respects, legal and have met customary industry standards for servicing of commercial loans for conduit loan programs.
(36)Origination and Underwriting. The origination practices of the Seller (or the related originator if the Seller was not the originator) with respect to each Mortgage Loan have been, in all material respects, legal and as of the date of its origination, such Mortgage Loan

 B-1-16 

 

 

  and the origination thereof complied in all material respects with, or was exempt from, all requirements of federal, state or local law relating to the origination of such Mortgage Loan;provided that such representation and warranty does not address or otherwise cover any matters with respect to federal, state or local law otherwise covered in thisExhibit B-1.
(37)No Material Default; Payment Record. No Mortgage Loan has been more than 30 days delinquent, without giving effect to any grace or cure period, in making required payments since origination, and as of the date hereof, no Mortgage Loan is more than 30 days delinquent (beyond any applicable grace or cure period) in making required payments as of the Closing Date. To the 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, however, 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 the Seller in thisExhibit B-1. 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 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, 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 under another Mortgage Loan. (An “Affiliate” for purposes of this paragraph (39) means, a Mortgagor that is under direct or indirect common ownership and control with another Mortgagor.)
(40)Environmental Conditions. A Phase I environmental site assessment (or update of a previous Phase I and or Phase II site assessment) and, with respect to certain Mortgage Loans, a Phase II environmental site assessment (collectively, an “ESA”) meeting ASTM requirements conducted by a reputable environmental consultant in connection with such Mortgage Loan within 12 months prior to its origination date (or an update of a previous ESA was prepared), and such ESA either (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 with respect to any Environmental Condition that was identified, or

 B-1-17 

 

 

  (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, and 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 or abated in all material respects prior to the date hereof, and, if and as appropriate, a no further action or closure letter 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 is required); (D) a secured creditor environmental policy or a 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 such 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. To the Seller’s knowledge, except as set forth in the ESA, there is no Environmental Condition (as such term is defined in ASTM E1527-05 or its successor) at the related Mortgaged Property.
(41)Appraisal. The Servicing File contains an appraisal of the related Mortgaged Property with an appraisal date within 6 months of the Mortgage Loan origination date, and within 12 months of the Closing Date. The appraisal is signed by an appraiser who is either a Member of the Appraisal Institute (“MAI”) and/or has been licensed and certified to prepare appraisals in the state where the Mortgaged Property is located. 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 and has certified that such appraiser had no interest, direct or indirect, in the Mortgaged Property or the Mortgagor or in any loan made on the security thereof, and its compensation is not affected by the approval or disapproval of the Mortgage Loan.
(42)Mortgage Loan Schedule. The information pertaining to each Mortgage Loan which is set forth in the mortgage loan schedule attached asExhibit A to this Agreement is true and correct in all material respects as of the Cut-Off Date and contains all information required by this Agreement to be contained therein.
(43)Cross-Collateralization. No Mortgage Loan is cross-collateralized or cross-defaulted with any mortgage loan that is outside the Trust, except as set forth onExhibit B-30-3.

 B-1-18 

 

 

(44)Hospitality Provisions. The Mortgage Loan documents for each Mortgage Loan that is secured by a hospitality property operated pursuant to a franchise or license agreement includes an executed comfort letter or similar agreement signed by the related Mortgagor and franchisor or licensor of such property that, subject to the applicable terms of such franchise or license agreement and comfort letter or similar agreement, is enforceable by the Trust (or, in the case of an Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan, by the related Other Securitization Trust) against such franchisor or licensor either (A) directly or as an assignee of the originator, or (B) upon the Seller’s or its designee’s providing notice of the transfer of the Mortgage Loan to the Trust (or, in the case of an Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan, by the seller of the note which is contributed to the related Other Securitization Trust or its designee providing notice of the transfer of such note to the related Other Securitization Trust) in accordance with the terms of such executed comfort letter or similar agreement, which the Seller or its designee (except in the case of an Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan) shall provide, or if neither (A) nor (B) is applicable, except in the case of an Outside Serviced Mortgage Loan, the Seller or its designee shall apply for, on the Trust’s behalf, a new comfort letter or similar agreement as of the Closing Date. The mortgage or related security agreement for each Mortgage Loan secured by a hospitality property creates a security interest in the revenues of such property for which a UCC financing statement has been filed in the appropriate filing office. For the avoidance of doubt, no representation is made as to the perfection of any security interest in revenues to the extent that possession or control of such items or actions other than the filing of Uniform Commercial Code financing statements is required to effect such perfection.
(45)Advance of Funds by the Seller. After origination, no advance of funds has been made by the Seller to the related Mortgagor other than in accordance with the Loan Documents, and, to the 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 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 Loan Documents). Neither the 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.
(46)Compliance with Anti-Money Laundering Laws. The 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 mean, except where otherwise expressly set forth in these representations and warranties, 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 in these representations and warranties.

EXHIBIT B-2

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE SELLER REGARDING THE CENTRE SUBORDINATE COMPANION LOAN

 

1.                  Immediately prior to the sale of The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan to the Purchaser, the Seller was the lawful owner and holder of The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan with the right to transfer The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan, and the Seller will transfer The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan to the Purchaser subject to no lien, adverse claim, mortgage, security interest, pledge, charge, participation or other encumbrance created by the Seller.

2.                  Except as set forth in the Mortgage File, the Loan Documents have not been modified since the origination of The Centre Loan Combination and no portion of The Centre Mortgaged Property has been released from the lien of the Mortgage.

3.                  The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan constitutes a whole loan and not a participation interest or certificate.

4.                  (A) There is no material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration existing under the related Mortgage Loan agreement, the related Note(s) or the Mortgage in respect of any payment due and owing the Seller from the related Borrower; (B) to the Actual Knowledge of the Seller, there is no other material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration existing under the related Mortgage Loan agreement, the related Note(s) or the Mortgage nor is there any event that, with the passage of time or with notice and the expiration of any grace or cure period, would constitute such a material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration under the related Mortgage Loan agreement, the related Note(s) or the Mortgage; and (C) the Seller has not waived any material default, breach, violation or event of acceleration under the related Mortgage Loan agreement, the related Note(s) or the Mortgage.

5.                  The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan is a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code (but without regard to the rule in Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(f)(2) that treats certain defective mortgage loans as qualified mortgages), which means that the gross proceeds of The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan at origination did not exceed the non-contingent principal amount of The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan and either: (a) The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan is secured by an interest in real property (including for this purpose, land and buildings but excluding personal property and going concern value, if any) having a fair market value (reduced for any lien senior to and any lien in parity with the lien of The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan) (i) at the date The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan was originated at least equal to 80% of the original principal balance of The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan or (ii) at the Closing Date at least equal to 80% of the original principal balance of The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan on such date; or (b) substantially all the proceeds of The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan were used to acquire, improve or protect the real property which served as the only security for The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan (other than a recourse feature or other third party credit enhancement within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(a)(1)(ii)). If The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan

 B-2-1 

 

 

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 The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan or (y) satisfies the provisions of either sub-clause (a)(i) above (substituting the date of the last such modification for the date The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan was originated) or sub-clause (a)(ii). Any prepayment premium and yield maintenance charges applicable to The Centre Subordinate Companion Loan constitute “customary prepayment penalties” within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-1(b)(2).

According to the Phase I ESA consultant, groundwater remediation activities have been and are continuing to be performed by the responsible party identified as Thermo Fisher (formerly Spectra Physics). As part of the remediation, soil vapor extraction/mitigation systems have been installed at the 1245 Terra Bella and the 1277 Terra Bella

  Mortgaged Properties, and a system has been proposed at the 1255 Terra Bella Mortgaged Property. The identified responsible party is also conducting vapor intrusion investigations and monitoring activities at certain properties within the area overlying the groundwater plume. While Thermo Fisher remains responsible and liable for investigation and remediation of the groundwater plume underlying the Mortgaged Properties, the Regional Water Quality Control Board (“RWQCB”) has recommended that the related borrower under the Mortgage Loan share in the cost of the soil vapor mitigation at 1277 Terra Bella Avenue due to a low concentration of an Halogenated Volatile Organic Compound identified in the soil in such Mortgaged Property, the source of which is unknown and possibly not related to the Thermo Fisher plume.
(40) Environmental ConditionsMichigan Self Storage Portfolio (Loan No. 26)The Phase I ESA with respect to the Compass Self Storage Jackson Mortgaged Property identifies as a REC elevated levels of arsenic in groundwater associated with historic operations. The impacts to groundwater were identified during a Phase II subsurface investigation in September 2013. As a result of the findings of the Phase II ESA, a Baseline Environmental Assessment (“BEA”) and Due Care Plan (“DCP”) were implemented at the Mortgaged Property in December 2013. A BEA allows the person(s) on whose behalf it is performed to purchase or begin operating at a property without taking on liability for historic impacts identified in the BEA. The BEA process requires the preparation of a DCP, which establishes requirements for the safe utilization of impacted property. The Phase I ESA consultant recommends that a new BEA and DCP (based on the September 2013 Phase II investigation) be completed for any new owner of the related Mortgaged Property in accordance with Part 201 of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of 1994, as amended (P.A. 451). The BEA and DCP have not yet been completed.
