-2- 

 

$43,500,000 (and only such Mortgage Note(s) will constitute a “Mortgage Loan” or “Mortgage Note(s)” hereunder). The purchase and sale of the Mortgage Loans shall take place on October 7, 2021 or such other date as shall be mutually acceptable to the parties hereto (the “Closing Date”). As of the Cut-off Date, the Mortgage Loans will have an aggregate principal balance, after application of all payments of principal due on the Mortgage Loans, if any, on or before such date, whether or not received, of (i) $497,276,548, plus (ii) $43,435,081, representing the 58.0% pari passu interest of the Mortgage Loan Seller in the Arizona Mills Mortgage Loan, which pari passu interest is represented by the related Mortgage Note(s) in favor of the Mortgage Loan Seller (or one of its affiliates) and its successors and assigns. The purchase price for the Mortgage Loans shall be a combination of (i) the portion of the RR Interest transferred to the Mortgage Loan Seller pursuant to the RR Interest Transfer Agreement and (ii) a cash amount set forth on the cross receipt between the Mortgage Loan Seller and the Purchaser dated the Closing Date (which price reflects no deduction for any transaction expenses for which the Mortgage Loan Seller is responsible). The Purchaser shall pay and/or direct to be paid the cash portion of such purchase price to the Mortgage Loan Seller on the Closing Date by wire transfer in immediately available funds or by such other method as shall be mutually acceptable to the parties hereto.

Section 2.                Conveyance of the Mortgage Loans. (a) Effective as of the Closing Date, subject only to receipt of the purchase price referred to in Section 1 hereof and the satisfaction of the other conditions to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s obligations set forth herein, the Mortgage Loan Seller does hereby sell, assign, transfer, set over and otherwise convey to the Purchaser, without recourse, representation or warranty, other than as set forth herein, all of the right, title and interest of the Mortgage Loan Seller in, to and under the Mortgage Loans and all documents included in the related Mortgage Files and Servicing Files, with the understanding that a servicing rights purchase and sale agreement or comparable agreement may be executed by the Mortgage Loan Seller and the General Master Servicer. Such assignment includes all scheduled payments of principal and interest under and proceeds of the Mortgage Loans received after their respective Cut-off Dates (other than scheduled payments of interest and principal due on or before their respective Cut-off Dates, which shall belong and be promptly remitted to the Mortgage Loan Seller) together with all documents delivered or caused to be delivered hereunder with respect to such Mortgage Loans by the Mortgage Loan Seller (including all documents included in the related Mortgage Files and Servicing Files and any other documents required to be delivered by the Mortgage Loan Seller under Sections 2.01(b) and (c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement). The Purchaser shall be entitled to receive all scheduled payments of principal and interest due on the Mortgage Loans after their respective Cut-off Dates, and all other recoveries of principal and interest collected thereon after their respective Cut-off Dates (other than scheduled payments of principal and interest due on the Mortgage Loans on or before their respective Cut-off Dates and collected after such respective Cut-off Dates or, in the case of Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans (if any), due on or prior to the related date of substitution and collected after such date, in each case, which shall belong to the Mortgage Loan Seller), except any Seller Defeasance Rights and Obligations.

After the Mortgage Loan Seller’s transfer of the Mortgage Loans to the Purchaser, as provided herein, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall not take any action inconsistent with the Purchaser’s ownership of the Mortgage Loans. Except for actions that are the express responsibility of another party hereunder or under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, and further except for actions that the Mortgage Loan Seller is expressly permitted to complete

-3- 

 

subsequent to the Closing Date, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall, on or before the Closing Date, take all actions required under applicable law to effectuate the transfer of the Mortgage Loans by the Mortgage Loan Seller to the Purchaser.

It is expressly agreed and understood that, notwithstanding the assignment of the Mortgage Loan documents, it is expressly intended that the Mortgage Loan Seller will receive the benefit of any securitization indemnification provisions in the Mortgage Loan documents.

(b)               The conveyance of the Mortgage Loans and the related rights and property accomplished hereby is intended by the parties hereto to constitute a sale by the Mortgage Loan Seller of all the Mortgage Loan Seller’s right, title and interest in and to such Mortgage Loans and such other related rights and property by the Mortgage Loan Seller to the Purchaser. Furthermore, it is not intended that such conveyance be a pledge of security for a loan. If such conveyance is determined to be a pledge of security for a loan, however, then: (i) this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law; (ii) the Mortgage Loan Seller shall be deemed to have granted to the Purchaser, and in any event, the Mortgage Loan Seller hereby grants to the Purchaser, a first priority security interest in all of the Mortgage Loan Seller’s right, title and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to (1) the Mortgage Loans, (2) all documents included in the related Mortgage Files and Servicing Files, (3) all scheduled payments of principal and interest due on the Mortgage Loans after their respective Cut-off Dates, and (4) all other recoveries of principal and interest collected thereon after their respective Cut-off Dates (other than scheduled payments of principal and interest due on the Mortgage Loans on or before their respective Cut-off Dates and collected after such respective Cut-off Dates or, in the case of Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans (if any), due on or prior to the related date of substitution and collected after such date); (iii) the assignment by the Purchaser to the Trustee of its interests in the Mortgage Loans as contemplated by Section 16 hereof shall be deemed to be an assignment of any security interest created hereunder; (iv) the possession by the Purchaser (or the Custodian) of the Mortgage Notes with respect to the Mortgage Loans subject hereto from time to time and such other items of property as constitute instruments, money, negotiable documents or chattel paper shall be deemed to be “possession by the secured party” or possession by a purchaser or person designated by such secured party for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law; and (v) notifications to, and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, Persons holding such property, shall be deemed to be notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, securities intermediaries, bailees or agents (as applicable) of the Purchaser for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law. The Mortgage Loan Seller and the Purchaser shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such actions as may be reasonably necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were deemed to create a security interest in the Mortgage Loans, such security interest would be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of this Agreement and the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

(c)                In connection with the Mortgage Loan Seller’s assignment pursuant to Section 2(a) above, the Mortgage Loan Seller, at its expense, shall deliver to and deposit with, or cause to be delivered to and deposited with, the Custodian, (x) on or before the Closing Date, the Mortgage Note relating to each Mortgage Loan so assigned, endorsed to the Trustee or in blank as specified in clause (i) of the definition of “Mortgage File” in Section 1.01 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (or, alternatively, if the original executed Mortgage Note has been lost, a lost

note affidavit and indemnity with a copy of such Mortgage Note as specified in clause (i) of the definition of “Mortgage File”) and (y) on or before the date that is forty-five (45) days following the Closing Date (or such later date as may be provided under Sections 2.01(b) or (c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement with respect to any item), the remainder of the Mortgage File for each Mortgage Loan and, except in the case of a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Non-Serviced Whole Loan as of the Closing Date (which delivery shall be subject to clauses (e) and (f) in the proviso of the definition of “Mortgage File”), any other items required to be delivered or deposited by the Mortgage Loan Seller under Sections 2.01(b) and (c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (other than amounts from reserve accounts and originals of letters of credit, which shall be transferred to the General Master Servicer) for each Mortgage Loan, and shall take such other actions and pay such costs with respect to the Mortgage Loans as may be required under Sections 2.01(b) and (c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, with respect to any Joint Mortgage Loan, the obligations of each of the Mortgage Loan Seller and any other Mortgage Loan Seller with respect to such Joint Mortgage Loan (an “Other Mortgage Loan Seller”) to deliver a Mortgage Note to the Custodian shall be limited to delivery of only the Mortgage Note(s) held by such party to the Custodian. With respect to any Joint Mortgage Loan, the obligations of the Mortgage Loan Seller and any Other Mortgage Loan Seller to deliver the remaining portion of the related Mortgage File or any document required to be delivered with respect thereto shall be joint and several, provided that either of the Mortgage Loan Seller or any Other Mortgage Loan Seller may deliver one Mortgage File or one of any other document required to be delivered with respect to such Joint Mortgage Loan hereunder, and such delivery shall satisfy such delivery requirements for the Mortgage Loan Seller and each such Other Mortgage Loan Seller.

In addition, on or prior to the fifth (5th) Business Day after the Closing Date, the Mortgage Loan Seller, at its expense, shall deliver to the Custodian five (5) limited powers of attorney substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit F in favor of the Custodian (on behalf of the Trustee) and the General Special Servicer to empower the Custodian (on behalf of the Trustee) and, in the event of the failure or incapacity of the Custodian (on behalf of the Trustee), the General Special Servicer, to sign and/or deliver to a third party for submission, or to cause the Custodian to sign and/or deliver to a third party for submission, at the expense of the Mortgage Loan Seller, any Mortgage Loan documents required to be recorded as described in Section 2.01 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and any intervening assignments with evidence of recording thereon that are required to be included in the Mortgage Files (so long as original counterparts have previously been delivered to the Trustee (or the Custodian on its behalf)). The Mortgage Loan Seller agrees to reasonably cooperate with the Custodian, the Trustee and the General Special Servicer in connection with any additional powers of attorney or revisions thereto that are requested by such parties for purposes of such recordation. The parties hereto agree that no such power of attorney shall be used with respect to any Mortgage Loan by or under authorization by any party hereto except to the extent that the absence of a document described in the second preceding sentence with respect to such Mortgage Loan remains unremedied as of the earlier of (i) the date that is one hundred eighty (180) days following the delivery of notice of such absence to the Mortgage Loan Seller, but in no event earlier than eighteen (18) months from the Closing Date, and (ii) the date (if any) on which such Mortgage Loan becomes a Specially Serviced Mortgage Loan. The Custodian or the General Special Servicer, as applicable, shall submit such documents for recording, at the Mortgage Loan Seller’s expense, after the periods set forth above,

-5- 

 

provided, the Custodian or the General Special Servicer, as applicable, shall not submit such assignments for recording if the Mortgage Loan Seller produces evidence that it or a third-party on its behalf has sent any such assignment for recording and certifies that the Mortgage Loan Seller is awaiting its return from the applicable recording office.

(d)               In accordance with Section 2.01(b) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, with respect to the delivery of a letter of credit in the manner described in clause (A) of clause (xii) of the definition of “Mortgage File”, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall be deemed to have satisfied the delivery requirements of this Agreement and the Pooling and Servicing Agreement by delivering to the Custodian within ten (10) Business Days following the Closing Date with respect to any such letter(s) of credit a copy of such letter of credit, the transfer documentation and such transmittal communication to the issuing bank indicating that such document has been delivered to the issuing bank for reissuance. If a letter of credit is not in a form that would allow the General Master Servicer to draw on such letter of credit on behalf of the Trust in accordance with the applicable terms thereof and/or of the related Mortgage Loan documents, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall deliver copies of the appropriate transfer or assignment documents to the Custodian promptly following receipt of written notification thereof. If not otherwise paid by the related Mortgagor, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall pay any transfer fee required in order to transfer the beneficiary's interest from such Mortgage Loan Seller to the General Master Servicer on behalf of the Trust as required hereunder and shall cooperate with the reasonable requests of the General Master Servicer in connection with effectuating a draw under any such letter of credit prior to the date such letter of credit is reissued to the General Master Servicer on behalf of the Trust.

With respect to letters of credit delivered in accordance with subclause (B) of clause (xii) of the definition of “Mortgage File”, within sixty (60) days of the Closing Date or such shorter period as is required by the terms of such letter of credit or other applicable Mortgage Loan documents, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall notify the bank issuing the letter of credit that the General Master Servicer on behalf of the Trustee shall be the beneficiary under such letter of credit. Section 3.01(f) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement requires the General Master Servicer to present such letter of credit and the related assignment documentation delivered by the Mortgage Loan Seller to the letter of credit bank issuing such letter of credit and request that such letter of credit bank reissue the letter of credit in the name of “Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as General Master Servicer, on behalf of Wilmington Trust, National Association, as Trustee, for the benefit of registered holders of BANK 2021-BNK36, Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2021-BNK36”. Section 3.01(f) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement further requires the General Master Servicer to use reasonable efforts to obtain such reissued letter of credit back from the issuing letter of credit bank within sixty (60) days (and in any event within ninety (90) days) following the Closing Date. The Mortgage Loan Seller shall provide such reasonable cooperation as requested by the General Master Servicer, including without limitation by delivering such additional assignment or amendment documents required by the issuing bank in order to reissue a letter of credit as provided above.

(e)                [Reserved.]

(f)                In connection with the Mortgage Loan Seller’s assignment pursuant to Section 2(a) above, the Mortgage Loan Seller, at its expense, shall deliver to and deposit with, or cause to be delivered to and deposited with, or make available or cause to be made available to,

In addition, not later than the Closing Date, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall provide to the General Master Servicer the initial data with respect to each Mortgage Loan that is necessary for the preparation of the initial CREFC® Financial File and CREFC® Loan Periodic Update File required to be delivered by the General Master Servicer under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

(g)               Under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and for federal income tax purposes, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall report its transfer of the Mortgage Loans to the Purchaser, as provided herein, as a sale of the Mortgage Loans to the Purchaser in exchange for the consideration specified in Section 1 hereof. In connection with the foregoing, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall cause all of its records to reflect such transfer as a sale (as opposed to a secured loan) and to reflect that the Mortgage Loans are no longer property of the Mortgage Loan Seller. In no event shall the Mortgage Loan Seller take any action that is inconsistent with the Trust’s ownership of each Mortgage Loan following the Closing Date.

(h)               The Mortgage Loan Schedule, as it may be amended from time to time, shall conform to the requirements set forth in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (except with respect to the Administrative Cost Rate).

(i)                 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the Purchaser and the Mortgage Loan Seller hereby acknowledge and agree that with respect to each Mortgage Loan subject to defeasance (except with respect to the Mortgage Loans identified on Exhibit A hereto as One North Wacker and Arizona Mills), the Mortgage Loan Seller has transferred to a third party or has retained the right of the lender under the Mortgage Loan documents to receive a percentage of the economic benefit associated with the ownership of the successor borrower, to designate or establish the successor borrower and/or to purchase (or cause the purchase on behalf of the related borrower of) the related defeasance collateral, in each case if there is a defeasance of such Mortgage Loan (“Seller Defeasance Rights and Obligations”). The Purchaser shall cause the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to provide that: (i) if the General Master Servicer receives notice of a defeasance request to a Mortgage Loan subject to defeasance, then the General Master Servicer shall provide upon receipt of such notice, written notice of such defeasance request to the Mortgage Loan Seller or its assignee; and (ii) until such time as the Mortgage Loan Seller provides written notice to the contrary, notice of a defeasance of a Mortgage Loan with Seller Defeasance Rights and Obligations shall be delivered to the Mortgage Loan Seller pursuant to the notice provisions of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Mortgage Loan Seller shall reasonably cooperate with any examination of the Mortgage Files for, and any other documents and records relating to, the Mortgage Loans, that may be undertaken by or on behalf of the Purchaser on or before the Closing Date. The fact that the Purchaser has conducted or has failed to conduct any partial or complete examination of any of the Mortgage Files for, and/or any of such other documents and records relating to, the Mortgage Loans, shall not affect the Purchaser’s right to pursue any remedy available in equity or at law for a breach of the Mortgage Loan Seller’s representations and warranties made pursuant to Section 4, except as expressly set forth in Section 5.

Section 4.                Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Mortgage Loan Seller and the Purchaser.

(h)               Within sixty (60) days after the Closing Date, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall deliver or cause to be delivered an electronic copy of the Diligence File for each Mortgage Loan to the Depositor by uploading such Diligence File (including, if applicable, any additional documents that the Mortgage Loan Seller believes should be included to enable the Asset Representations Reviewer to perform an Asset Review on such Mortgage Loan; provided that such documents are clearly labeled and identified) to the Designated Site, each such Diligence File being organized and categorized in accordance with the electronic file structure reasonably agreed to by the Depositor and the Mortgage Loan Seller.

(i)                 Within sixty (60) days after the Closing Date, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall provide the Depositor a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit E (which may be sent by email to todd.stillerman@bofa.com and leland.f.bunch@bofa.com).

(k)               Upon the completion of an Asset Review with respect to each Mortgage Loan in accordance with the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and receipt of a written invoice from the Asset Representations Reviewer, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall pay the Asset Representations Reviewer Asset Review Fee for the Mortgage Loans subject to that Asset Review (or, with respect to any Joint Mortgage Loan, a fee equal to the Asset Representations Reviewer

Asset Review Fee for the entire Joint Mortgage Loan, multiplied by the Mortgage Loan Seller’s Mortgage Loan Seller Percentage Interest) within sixty (60) days of such written invoice by the Asset Representations Reviewer; provided, that if any fees payable pursuant to this Section 4(k) are paid by the Trust pursuant to Section 12.02(b) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall reimburse the Trust for the amount of any such fees (or, with respect to any Joint Mortgage Loan, for its Mortgage Loan Seller Percentage Interest of the amount of such fees).

(l)                 The Mortgage Loan Seller acknowledges and agrees that in the event an Enforcing Party elects a dispute resolution method pursuant to Section 2.03 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall abide by the selected dispute resolution method and otherwise comply with the terms and provisions set forth in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (including the exhibits thereto) related to such dispute resolution method.

(m)             The Mortgage Loan Seller shall indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser against any and all expenses, losses, claims, damages and other liabilities, including without limitation the costs of investigation, legal defense and any amounts paid in settlement of any claim or litigation arising out of or based upon any failure by the Mortgage Loan Seller to (A) pay the fees described under Section 4(k) above within sixty (60) days of written invoice by the Asset Representations Reviewer or (B) within sixty (60) days of the Closing Date (or such later date specified herein or in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement), provide all documents required to be delivered by it pursuant to Section 4(h) of this Agreement.

(n)               The Mortgage Loan Seller covenants with the Purchaser that if, on or prior to the later of (i) the ninetieth (90th) day following the Closing Date and (ii) the date upon which all Certificates have been sold to parties unaffiliated with the Depositor, as a result of the occurrence of any event that occurred prior to the Closing Date with respect to the Mortgage Loans or the Mortgage Loan Seller (and the Mortgage Loan Seller hereby covenants to promptly notify the Depositor, the Underwriters and the Initial Purchasers of the occurrence of any such event to the extent it has knowledge thereof), an amendment or supplement to the Prospectus or Private Placement Memorandum, including Annexes A-1, A-2 and A-3 of the Prospectus, with respect to any information regarding the Mortgage Loans or the Mortgage Loan Seller, is necessary to be delivered in connection with sales of the Certificates by the Underwriters, the Initial Purchasers or a dealer, in order to correct any untrue statement of a material fact or any omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein (solely in the case of the Prospectus) or necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances when the Prospectus or Private Placement Memorandum is delivered to a purchaser, not misleading, or an amendment or supplement to the Prospectus or Private Placement Memorandum, including Annexes A-1, A-2 and A-3 of the Prospectus, with respect to any information regarding the Mortgage Loans or the Mortgage Loan Seller, is necessary to comply with applicable law, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall do all things necessary (or, with respect to information relating to the Mortgage Loans, provide all information in its possession) to assist the Depositor to prepare and furnish, at the expense of the Mortgage Loan Seller (to the extent that such amendment or supplement relates to the Mortgage Loan Seller, the Mortgage Loans and/or any information describing the same, as provided by the Mortgage Loan Seller), to the Underwriters and Initial Purchasers such amendments or supplements to the Prospectus or Private Placement Memorandum as may be necessary, so that the statements in the Prospectus or Private Placement Memorandum as so amended or

-11- 

 

supplemented, including Annexes A-1, A-2 and A-3 of the Prospectus, with respect to any information regarding the Mortgage Loans or the Mortgage Loan Seller, will not so contain an untrue statement of material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein (solely in the case of the Prospectus) or necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances when the Prospectus or Private Placement Memorandum is delivered to a purchaser, not misleading or so that the Prospectus or Private Placement Memorandum (as so annexed or supplemented), including Annexes A-1, A-2 and A-3 of the Prospectus, with respect to any information regarding the Mortgage Loans or the Mortgage Loan Seller, will not so fail to comply with applicable law. All terms used in this Section 4(n) and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Indemnification Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall have no affirmative obligation to monitor the performance of the Mortgage Loans or any changes in condition or circumstance of any Mortgaged Property, Mortgagor, guarantor or any of their Affiliates after the Closing Date in connection with its obligations under this Section 4(n). The Underwriters and Initial Purchasers are third-party beneficiaries of the provisions set forth in this Section 4(n).

Section 5.                Notice of Breach; Cure, Repurchase and Substitution. (a) The Mortgage Loan Seller shall, not later than ninety (90) days after (i) except in the case of the succeeding clause (ii), the Mortgage Loan Seller’s receipt of notice of or, if earlier, the Mortgage Loan Seller’s discovery of, a Material Defect or (ii) in the case of a Material Defect relating to a Mortgage Loan not being a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code, but without regard to the rule of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(f)(2) that causes a defective Mortgage Loan to be treated as a qualified mortgage, the earlier of (x) the discovery by the Mortgage Loan Seller or any party to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement of such Material Defect and (y) receipt of notice of the Material Defect from any party to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (such ninety (90) day period, the “Initial Cure Period”), (A) cure such Material Defect in all material respects, at the Mortgage Loan Seller’s own expense, including reimbursement of any related reasonable additional expenses of the Trust reasonably incurred by any party to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, (B) repurchase the affected Mortgage Loan or REO Loan (excluding any related Companion Loan, if applicable), at the applicable Purchase Price and in conformity with this Agreement and Section 2.03 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement or (C) substitute a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan (other than with respect to the Whole Loans, for which no substitution will be permitted) for such affected Mortgage Loan or REO Loan (provided that in no event shall any such substitution occur on or after the second anniversary of the Closing Date) and pay the General Master Servicer for deposit into the Collection Account, any Substitution Shortfall Amount in connection therewith and in conformity with this Agreement and Section 2.03 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement; provided, however, that except with respect to a Material Defect resulting solely from the failure by the Mortgage Loan Seller to deliver to the Trustee or Custodian the actual policy of lender’s title insurance required pursuant to clause (viii) of the definition of Mortgage File by a date not later than eighteen (18) months following the Closing Date, if such Material Defect is capable of being cured but is not cured within the Initial Cure Period, and the Mortgage Loan Seller has commenced and is diligently proceeding with the cure of such Material Defect within the Initial Cure Period, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall have an additional ninety (90) days commencing immediately upon the expiration of the Initial Cure Period (such additional ninety (90) day period, the “Extended Cure Period”) to complete such cure (or, failing such cure, to repurchase the related Mortgage Loan or REO Loan (excluding any related Companion Loan, if applicable) or substitute a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan (other than

-12- 

 

with respect to the Whole Loans, for which no substitution will be permitted)); provided, further, that with respect to such Extended Cure Period the Mortgage Loan Seller has delivered an officer’s certificate to the Trustee, the Certificate Administrator, the General Master Servicer, the General Special Servicer, the Operating Advisor and (with respect to any Mortgage Loan other than an Excluded Loan with respect to the Directing Certificateholder or the Holder of the majority of the Controlling Class, prior to the occurrence of a Consultation Termination Event) the Directing Certificateholder, setting forth the reason such Material Defect is not capable of being cured within the Initial Cure Period and what actions the Mortgage Loan Seller is pursuing in connection with the cure thereof and stating that the Mortgage Loan Seller anticipates that such Material Defect will be cured within the Extended Cure Period; and provided, further, that, if any such Material Defect is not cured after the Initial Cure Period and any such Extended Cure Period solely due to the failure of the Mortgage Loan Seller to have received the recorded document, then the Mortgage Loan Seller shall be entitled to continue to defer its cure, repurchase and/or substitution obligations in respect of such Material Defect until eighteen (18) months after the Closing Date so long as the Mortgage Loan Seller certifies to the Trustee, the General Master Servicer, the General Special Servicer, the Directing Certificateholder (prior to the occurrence and continuance of a Consultation Termination Event) and the Certificate Administrator no less than every ninety (90) days, beginning at the end of such Extended Cure Period, that the Material Defect is still in effect solely because of its failure to have received the recorded document and that the Mortgage Loan Seller is diligently pursuing the cure of such Material Defect (specifying the actions being taken). Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Defect or Breach that causes any Mortgage Loan not to be a “qualified mortgage” (within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code, but without regard to the rule of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(f)(2) that causes a defective Mortgage Loan to be treated as a qualified mortgage) shall be deemed to materially and adversely affect the interests of Certificateholders therein, and (subject to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s right to cure such Defect or Breach during the Initial Cure Period) such Mortgage Loan shall be repurchased or substituted for without regard to the Extended Cure Period described in the preceding sentence. If the affected Mortgage Loan is to be repurchased, the funds in the amount of the Purchase Price remitted by the Mortgage Loan Seller are to be remitted by wire transfer to the General Master Servicer for deposit into the Collection Account. Any such repurchase or substitution of a Mortgage Loan shall be on a whole loan, servicing released basis.

If the Mortgage Loan Seller, in connection with a Material Defect (or an allegation of a Material Defect) pertaining to a Mortgage Loan, agrees to a Loss of Value Payment, pursuant to any agreement or a settlement between the Mortgage Loan Seller and the Enforcing Servicer on behalf of the Trust (and, with respect to any Mortgage Loan other than an Excluded Loan with respect to the Directing Certificateholder or the Holder of the majority of the Controlling Class, with the consent of the Directing Certificateholder if no Control Termination Event has occurred and is continuing) with respect to such Mortgage Loan, the amount of such Loss of Value Payment shall be remitted by wire transfer to the Enforcing Servicer for deposit into the Loss of Value Reserve Fund. The Loss of Value Payment shall include the portion of any Liquidation Fees payable to the General Special Servicer in respect of such Loss of Value Payment and the portion of fees of the Asset Representations Reviewer payable pursuant to Section 4(k) above attributable to the Asset Review of such Mortgage Loan and not previously paid by the Mortgage Loan Seller. If such Loss of Value Payment is made, the Loss of Value Payment shall serve as the sole remedy available to the Certificateholders and the Trustee on their behalf regarding any such Material Defect in lieu of any obligation of the Mortgage Loan Seller to otherwise cure such Material Defect

-13- 

 

or repurchase or substitute for the affected Mortgage Loan based on such Material Defect under any circumstances. This paragraph is intended to apply only to a mutual agreement or settlement between the Mortgage Loan Seller and the Enforcing Servicer on behalf of the Trust. The following terms shall apply to any Loss of Value Payment: (i) prior to any agreement or settlement between the Mortgage Loan Seller and the Enforcing Servicer nothing in this paragraph shall preclude the Mortgage Loan Seller or the Enforcing Servicer from exercising any of its rights related to a Material Defect in the manner and timing set forth in this Agreement (excluding this paragraph) or the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (including any right to cure, repurchase or substitute for such Mortgage Loan), (ii) such Loss of Value Payment shall not be greater than the Purchase Price of the affected Mortgage Loan; and (iii) a Material Defect as a result of a Mortgage Loan not constituting a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code (but without regard to the rule of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(f)(2) that causes a defective Mortgage Loan to be treated as a “qualified mortgage”) may not be cured by a Loss of Value Payment.

The Mortgage Loan Seller’s obligation to cure any Material Defect, repurchase or substitute for any affected Mortgage Loan or pay the Loss of Value Payment or other required payment pursuant to this Section 5 shall constitute the sole remedy available to the Purchaser in connection with a Material Defect; provided, however, that no limitation of remedy is implied with respect to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s breach of its obligation to cure, repurchase or substitute in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. It is acknowledged and agreed that the representations and warranties are being made for risk allocation purposes.

The remedies provided for in this subsection with respect to any Material Defect with respect to any Mortgage Loan shall also apply to the related REO Property.

If any Breach that constitutes a Material Defect pertains to a representation or warranty that the related Mortgage Loan documents or any particular Mortgage Loan document requires the related Mortgagor to bear the costs and expenses associated with any particular action or matter under such Mortgage Loan document(s), then the Mortgage Loan Seller may cure such Breach within the applicable cure period (as the same may be extended) by reimbursing the Trust (by wire transfer of immediately available funds) for (i) the reasonable amount of any such costs and expenses incurred by the General Master Servicer, the General Special Servicer, the Certificate Administrator, the Trustee or the Trust that are incurred as a result of such Breach and have not been reimbursed by the related Mortgagor and (ii) the amount of any fees payable pursuant to Section 4(k) above to the extent not previously paid by the Mortgage Loan Seller to the Asset Representations Reviewer attributable to the Asset Review of such Mortgage Loan; provided, that if the Breach relates to a Joint Mortgage Loan, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall only be responsible for its Mortgage Loan Seller Percentage Interest of all such costs and expenses unless such Breach relates solely to the Mortgage Note(s) sold by the Mortgage Loan Seller. Except as provided in the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall remit the amount of such costs and expenses to the General Special Servicer for disbursement to the applicable Persons and upon its making such remittance, the Mortgage Loan Seller shall be deemed to have cured such Breach in all respects. To the extent any fees or expenses that are the subject of a cure by the Mortgage Loan Seller are subsequently obtained from the related Mortgagor, the portion of the cure payment made by the Mortgage Loan Seller equal to such fees or expenses obtained from the related Mortgagor shall promptly be returned to the Mortgage Loan Seller.

Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement or the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, a delay in either the discovery of a Material Defect or in providing notice of such Material Defect shall relieve the Mortgage Loan Seller of its obligation to cure, repurchase or substitute for (or make a Loss of Value Payment with respect to) the related Mortgage Loan under this Agreement if (i) the Mortgage Loan Seller did not otherwise discover or have knowledge of such Material Defect, (ii) such delay is a result of the failure by the Purchaser or any other party to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to provide prompt notice as required by the terms of this Agreement or the Pooling and Servicing Agreement after such party has actual knowledge of such Material Defect (it being understood that knowledge shall not be deemed to exist by reason of the Custodial Exception Report or possession of the Mortgage File), (iii) such Material Defect does not relate to the applicable Mortgage Loan not being a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Code Section 860G(a)(3), but without regard to the rule of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(f)(2) that causes a defective obligation to be treated as a qualified mortgage, and (iv) such delay precludes the Mortgage Loan Seller from curing such Material Defect and such Material Defect was otherwise curable. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement, if a Mortgage Loan is not secured by a Mortgaged Property that is, in whole or in part, a hotel or other hospitality property, 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 pursuant to Section 2 hereof 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 Mortgage Loan Seller shall not be obligated to repurchase the Mortgage Loan if (i) the affected Mortgaged Property may be released pursuant to the terms of any partial release provisions in the related Mortgage Loan documents (and such Mortgaged Property is, in fact, released), (ii) the remaining Mortgaged Property(ies) satisfy the requirements, if any, set forth in the Mortgage Loan documents and the Mortgage Loan Seller provides an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such release would not cause an Adverse REMIC Event and (iii) each applicable Rating Agency has provided a Rating Agency Confirmation.

(b)               Whenever one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans are substituted for a Defective Loan by the Responsible Repurchase Party as contemplated by this Section 5, upon direction by the General Master Servicer or the General Special Servicer, as applicable, the Responsible Repurchase Party shall deliver to the Custodian the related Mortgage File and a certification to the effect that such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan satisfies or such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans satisfy, as the case may be, all of the requirements of the definition of “Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan” in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement. No mortgage loan may be substituted for a Defective Loan as contemplated by this Section 5 if the Mortgage Loan to be replaced was itself a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan, in which case, absent a cure of the relevant Material Defect, the affected Mortgage Loan will be required to be repurchased as contemplated hereby. Periodic Payments due with respect to each Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan (if any) after the related date of substitution, and Periodic Payments due with respect to each corresponding Deleted Mortgage Loan (if any) after its respective Cut-off Date and on or prior to the related date of substitution, shall be part of the Trust Fund. Periodic Payments due with respect to each Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan (if any) on or prior to the related date of substitution, and Periodic Payments due with respect to each corresponding Defective Loan that is purchased or repurchased, as the case may be, or replaced with one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage

-15- 

 

Loans (any such Mortgage Loan, a “Deleted Mortgage Loan”) (if any) after the related date of substitution, shall not be part of the Trust Fund and are to be remitted by the General Master Servicer to the Responsible Repurchase Party promptly following receipt.

If any Mortgage Loan is to be repurchased or replaced as contemplated by this Section 5, upon direction by the General Master Servicer or the General Special Servicer, as applicable, the Mortgage Loan 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 one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for a Deleted Mortgage Loan, such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan(s) shall become part of the Trust Fund and be subject to the terms of this Agreement in all respects.

If any Mortgage Loan that is part of a Crossed Mortgage Loan Group is required to be repurchased or substituted, the provisions of Section 2.03(h), Section 2.03(i) and Section 2.03(j) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement shall apply.

(c)                The Responsible Repurchase Party shall be entitled, and the Purchaser shall cause the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to entitle the Responsible Repurchase Party, upon the date when the full amount of the Purchase Price or Substitution Shortfall Amount (as the case may be) for any Mortgage Loan repurchased or replaced as contemplated by this Section 5 has been deposited in the account designated therefor by the Trustee as the assignee of the Purchaser (or the General Master Servicer on behalf of the Trustee) and, if applicable, receipt by the Trustee as the assignee of the Purchaser (or the Custodian) of the Mortgage File for each Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan (if any) to be substituted for a Deleted Mortgage Loan, together with any certifications and/or opinions required pursuant to this Section 5 to be delivered by the Responsible Repurchase Party, to (i) a release of the Mortgage File and any other items required to be delivered by the Mortgage Loan Seller under Sections 2.01(b) and (c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement for the Deleted Mortgage Loan to the Responsible Repurchase Party or its designee, (ii) the execution and delivery of such instruments of release, transfer and/or assignment, in each case without recourse, as shall be prepared by the Responsible Repurchase Party and are reasonably necessary to vest in the Responsible Repurchase Party or its designee the ownership of such Deleted Mortgage Loan, and (iii) the execution and delivery of notice to the affected Mortgagor of the retransfer of such Deleted Mortgage Loan. In connection with any such repurchase or substitution by the Responsible Repurchase Party, the Purchaser shall also cause the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to require each of the General Master Servicer and the General Special Servicer to deliver to the Responsible Repurchase Party or its designee, and the Responsible Repurchase Party or its designee shall be entitled to delivery from the General Master Servicer and the General Special Servicer of, any portion of the related Servicing File (as such term is defined in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement), together with any Escrow Payments, reserve funds and any other items required to be delivered by the Mortgage Loan Seller under Sections 2.01(b) and (c) of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, held by or on behalf of the General Master Servicer or the General Special Servicer, as the case may be, with respect to the Deleted Mortgage Loan, in each case at the expense of the Responsible Repurchase Party.

(e)                The Mortgage Loan Seller acknowledges and agrees that the Purchaser shall have no liability to the Mortgage Loan Seller or otherwise for any failure of the Mortgage Loan Seller or any other party to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to perform its obligations provided for thereunder.

(f)                The Mortgage Loan Seller (to the extent it receives any request or demand, whether oral or written, that a Mortgage Loan be repurchased or replaced, whether arising from a Material Defect or other breach of a representation or warranty, such recipient a “Seller Request Recipient” and such request or demand, a “Repurchase Request”) agrees to provide to the Purchaser: (i) written notice of any Repurchase Request, which notice will specify if such Repurchase Request is a 15Ga-1 Notice; (ii) written notice of (A) the existence of any dispute regarding such Repurchase Request, whether written or oral, between such Seller Request Recipient and the Person making such Repurchase Request, (B) the expiration of any applicable Initial Cure Period, or, if applicable, any Extended Cure Period, (C) the withdrawal of such Repurchase Request by the Person making such Repurchase Request, (D) the rejection of such Repurchase Request by the Seller Request Recipient and (E) the repurchase or replacement of any Mortgage Loan pursuant to this Section 5 and Section 2.03 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement; and (iii) upon reasonable request of the Purchaser (subject to Section 5(g)), such other information in the Seller Request Recipient’s possession as would be necessary to permit the Purchaser to comply with its obligations under Rule 15Ga-1 under the Exchange Act to disclose fulfilled and unfulfilled repurchase or replacement requests or demands of any Person relating to any Mortgage Loan or to comply with any other obligations applicable to it under law or regulation.

Each notice required to be delivered pursuant to this Section 5(f) may be delivered by electronic means. Each notice required to be delivered pursuant to clauses (i) and (ii) of the immediately preceding paragraph shall be given not later than the tenth (10th) Business Day after the event giving rise to the requirement for such notice and any information requested pursuant to clause (iii) of the immediately preceding paragraph shall be provided as promptly as practicable after such request is made.

EXHIBIT C

MORTGAGE LOAN REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

For purposes of this Exhibit C, the phrases the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledgeor “the Mortgage Loan Seller’s belief” and other words and phrases of like import shall mean, except where otherwise expressly set forth below, the actual state of knowledge or belief of the Mortgage Loan Seller, its officers and employees directly responsible for the underwriting, origination, servicing or sale of the Mortgage Loans regarding the matters expressly set forth below in each case without having conducted any independent inquiry into such matters and without any obligation to have done so (except (i) having sent to the servicers servicing the Mortgage Loans on behalf of the Mortgage Loan Seller, if any, specific inquiries regarding the matters referred to and (ii) as expressly set forth herein). All information contained in documents which are part of or required to be part of a Mortgage File, as specified in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (to the extent such documents exist) shall be deemed within the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge.

The Mortgage Loan Seller hereby represents and warrants that, as of the date herein below specified or, if no such date is specified, as of the date hereof, except with respect to the Exceptions described on Schedule C to this Agreement.

1.                  Intentionally Omitted.

2.                  Whole Loan; Ownership of Mortgage Loans. Except with respect to a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Whole Loan, each Mortgage Loan is a whole loan and not a participation interest in a mortgage loan. At the time of the sale, transfer and assignment to the Depositor, no Mortgage Note or Mortgage was subject to any assignment (other than assignments to the Mortgage Loan Seller or (with respect to any Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan) to the related Non-Serviced Trustee for the related Non-Serviced Trust), participation (it being understood that a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Whole Loan does not constitute a participation) or pledge, and the Mortgage Loan 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 (other than with respect to agreements among noteholders with respect to a Whole Loan), any other ownership interests and other interests on, in or to such Mortgage Loan other than any servicing rights appointment, subservicing or similar agreement. The Mortgage Loan Seller has full right and authority to sell, assign and transfer each Mortgage Loan, and the assignment to the Depositor 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.

3.                  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 as such enforcement may be limited by (i) bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent transfer, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws

Exh. C-1

 

affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and (ii) general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law) and except that certain provisions in such Mortgage Loan documents (including, without limitation, provisions requiring the payment of default interest, late fees or Prepayment Premium/Yield Maintenance Charge) may be further limited or rendered unenforceable by applicable law, but (subject to the limitations set forth above) such limitations or unenforceability will not render such Mortgage Loan documents invalid as a whole or materially interfere with the Mortgagee’s realization of the principal benefits and/or security provided thereby (clauses (i) and (ii) collectively, the “Standard Qualifications”).

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

4.                  Mortgage Provisions. The Mortgage Loan documents for each Mortgage Loan, together with applicable state law, 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.

5.                  Intentionally Omitted.

6.                  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 Mortgage Loan documents (a) (1) to the knowledge of the Mortgage Loan Seller, there has been no forbearance, waiver or modification of the material terms of the Mortgage Loan which such forbearance, waiver, or modification relates to the COVID-19 emergency and (2) other than as related to the COVID-19 emergency, the material terms of such Mortgage, Mortgage Note, Mortgage Loan guaranty and related Mortgage Loan documents have not been waived, impaired, modified, altered, satisfied, canceled, subordinated or rescinded in any respect which materially interferes with the security intended to be provided by such mortgage; (b) no related Mortgaged Property or any portion thereof has been released from the lien of the related Mortgage in any manner which materially interferes with the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage or the use or operation of the remaining portion of such Mortgaged Property; and (c) neither the Mortgagor nor the 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 Mortgage Loan Seller on or after the Cut-off Date.

7.                  Lien; Valid Assignment. Subject to the Standard Qualifications, each endorsement or assignment of Mortgage and assignment of Assignment of Leases from the

Exh. C-2

 

Mortgage Loan Seller or its Affiliate is in recordable form (but for the insertion of the name of the assignee and any related recording information which is not yet available to the Mortgage Loan Seller) and constitutes a legal, valid and binding endorsement or assignment from the Mortgage Loan Seller, or its Affiliate, as applicable. 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 if identified on the Mortgage Loan Schedule, 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 8 below (each such exception, a “Title Exception”)), except as the enforcement thereof may be limited by the Standard Qualifications. Such Mortgaged Property (subject to Permitted Encumbrances and Title Exceptions) as of origination and, to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge, as of the Cut-off Date, is free and clear of any recorded mechanics’ or materialmen’s liens and other recorded encumbrances that would be prior to or equal with the lien of the related mortgage (which lien secures the related Whole Loan, in the case of a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Whole Loan), except those which are bonded over, escrowed for or insured against by the applicable Title Policy (as described below), and as of origination and, to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge, as of the Cut-off Date, 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 the applicable Title Policy. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no representation is made as to the perfection of any security interest in rents or other personal property to the extent that possession or control of such items or actions other than the filing of Uniform Commercial Code financing statements is required to effect such perfection.

8.                  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 or a “marked up” commitment, in each case with escrow instructions and 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 Whole Loan, in the case of a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Whole Loan), 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 specifically identified in the Title Policy; (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; (f) if the related Mortgage Loan constitutes a Crossed Underlying Loan, the lien of the Mortgage for another Mortgage Loan contained in the same Crossed Mortgage Loan Group, and (g) condominium declarations of record and identified in such Title Policy, provided that none of clauses (a) through (g), individually or in the aggregate, materially and adversely interferes with the value or principal use of the Mortgaged Property, the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage, or the current ability of the related Mortgaged Property to generate net cash flow sufficient to service the related Mortgage Loan or the

Exh. C-3

 

Mortgagor’s ability to pay its obligations when they become due (collectively, the “Permitted Encumbrances”). For purposes of clause (a) of the immediately preceding sentence, any such taxes, assessments and other charges shall not be considered due and payable until the date on which interest and/or penalties would be payable thereon. Except as contemplated by clause (f) of the second 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 Mortgage Loan Seller thereunder and no claims have been paid thereunder. Neither the Mortgage Loan Seller, nor to the Mortgage Loan 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. Each Title Policy contains no exclusion for, or affirmatively insures (except for any Mortgaged Property located in a jurisdiction where such affirmative insurance is not available in which case such exclusion may exist), (a) that the Mortgaged Property shown on the survey is the same as the property legally described in the Mortgage and (b) to the extent that the Mortgaged Property consists of two or more adjoining parcels, such parcels are contiguous.

9.                  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 Mortgage Loan that is cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted with another Mortgage Loan, as of the Cut-off Date there are no subordinate mortgages or junior mortgage liens encumbering the related Mortgaged Property other than Permitted Encumbrances, mechanics’ or materialmen’s liens (which are the subject of the representation in paragraph (7) above), and equipment and other personal property financing. The Mortgage Loan Seller has no knowledge of any mezzanine debt secured directly by interests in the related Mortgagor other than as set forth on Exhibit C-32-1.

10.              Assignment of Leases and Rents. There exists as part of the related Mortgage File an Assignment of Leases (either as a separate instrument or incorporated into the related Mortgage). Subject to the Permitted Encumbrances and Title Exceptions (and, in the case of a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Whole Loan, subject to the related Assignment of Leases constituting security for the entire Whole Loan), 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 and the Standard Qualifications, provides that, upon an event of default under the Mortgage Loan, a receiver may 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.

11.              Financing Statements. Subject to the Standard Qualifications, each Mortgage Loan or related security agreement establishes a valid security interest in, and a UCC-1 financing statement has been filed and/or recorded (or, in the case of fixtures, the Mortgage constitutes a fixture filing) in all places necessary at the time of the origination of the Mortgage Loan (or, if not filed and/or recorded, has submitted or caused to be submitted in proper form for filing and/or recording) to perfect a valid security interest in, the personal property (creation and

Exh. C-4

 

perfection of which is governed by the UCC) owned by the Mortgagor and necessary to operate such Mortgaged Property in its current use other than (1) non-material personal property, (2) personal property subject to purchase money security interests and (3) personal property that is leased equipment. Each UCC-1 financing statement, if any, filed with respect to personal property constituting a part of the related Mortgaged Property and each UCC-3 assignment, if any, filed with respect to such financing statement was in suitable form for filing in the filing office in which such financing statement was filed. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no representation is made as to the perfection of any security interest in rents or other personal property to the extent that possession or control of such items or actions other than the filing of Uniform Commercial Code financing statements is required to effect such perfection.

12.              Condition of Property. The Mortgage Loan 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 Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge, based solely upon due diligence customarily performed in connection with the origination of comparable mortgage loans, as of the Closing Date, each related Mortgaged Property was free and clear of any material damage (other than (i) deferred maintenance for which escrows were established at origination and (ii) any damage fully covered by insurance) that would affect materially and adversely the use or value of such Mortgaged Property as security for the Mortgage Loan.

13.              Taxes and Assessments. As of the date of origination and, to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge, as of the Cut-off Date, all taxes, governmental assessments and other outstanding governmental charges (including, without limitation, water and sewage charges) due with respect to the Mortgaged Property (excluding any related personal property) securing a Mortgage Loan that is or could become a lien on the related Mortgaged Property that became due and owing prior to the Cut-off Date with respect to each related Mortgaged Property have been paid, or, if the appropriate amount of such taxes or charges is being appealed or is otherwise in dispute, the unpaid taxes or charges are covered by an escrow of funds or other security sufficient to pay such tax or charge and reasonably estimated interest and penalties, if any, thereon. For purposes of this representation and warranty, any such taxes, assessments and other charges shall not be considered due and payable until the date on which interest and/or penalties would be payable thereon.

14.              Condemnation. As of the date of origination and to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge as of the Cut-off Date, there is no proceeding pending and, to the Mortgage Loan 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.

15.              Actions Concerning Mortgage Loan. To the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge, based on evaluation of the Title Policy (as defined in paragraph 8), an engineering report or property condition assessment as described in paragraph 12, applicable local law compliance materials as described in paragraph 26, and the ESA (as defined in paragraph 43), as

Exh. C-5

 

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

16.              Escrow Deposits. All escrow deposits and escrow payments currently required to be escrowed with the Mortgagee pursuant to each Mortgage Loan (including capital improvements and environmental remediation reserves) are in the possession, or under the control, of the Mortgage Loan Seller or its servicer, and there are no delinquencies (subject to any applicable grace or cure periods) in connection therewith, and all such escrows and deposits (or the right thereto) that are required under the related Mortgage Loan documents are being conveyed by the Mortgage Loan Seller to the Depositor or its servicer (or, in the case of a Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan, to the related Non-Serviced Depositor or Non-Serviced Master Servicer for the related Non-Serviced Trust).

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

18.              Insurance. Each related Mortgaged Property is, and is required pursuant to the related Mortgage to be, insured by a property insurance policy providing coverage for loss in accordance with coverage found under a “special cause of loss form” or “all risk form” that includes replacement cost valuation issued by an insurer meeting the requirements of the related Mortgage Loan documents and having a claims-paying or financial strength rating meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements (as defined below), in an amount (subject to customary deductibles) 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 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 (1) a claims paying or financial strength rating of at least “A-:VIII” from A.M. Best Company (“A.M. Best”) or “A3” (or the equivalent) from Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. (“Moody’s”) or “A-” from S&P Global Ratings (“S&P”) or (2) 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

Exh. C-6

 

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 or at least “Baa3” by Moody’s, 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 or at least “Baa3” by Moody’s.

Each related Mortgaged Property is also covered, and required to be covered pursuant to the related Mortgage Loan documents, by business interruption or rental loss insurance which (subject to a customary deductible) covers a period of not less than 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 an amount equal to the least of (a) the maximum amount available under the National Flood Insurance Program, plus such additional excess flood coverage in an amount as is generally required by prudent institutional commercial mortgage lenders originating mortgage loans for securitization, (b) the outstanding principal amount of the Mortgage Loan and (c) the insurable value of the Mortgaged Property.

If the Mortgaged Property is located within 25 miles of the coast of the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic coast of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina or North Carolina, the related Mortgagor is required to maintain coverage for windstorm and/or windstorm related perils and/or “named storms” issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements or endorsement covering damage from windstorm and/or windstorm related perils and/or named storms, in an amount 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 by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements.

The Mortgaged Property is covered, and required to be covered pursuant to the related Mortgage Loan documents, by a commercial general liability insurance policy issued by an insurer meeting the Insurance Rating Requirements including coverage for property damage, contractual damage and personal injury (including bodily injury and death) in amounts as are generally required by the Mortgage Loan Seller for similar commercial and multifamily loans intended 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 seismic condition of such property, for the sole purpose of assessing the probable maximum loss or scenario expected loss (“PML”) for the Mortgaged Property in the event of an earthquake. In such instance, the PML

Exh. C-7

 

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 PML 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 or “A3” (or the equivalent) from Moody’s or “A-” by S&P in an amount not less than 100% of the PML.

The Mortgage Loan documents require insurance proceeds (or an amount equal to such 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 Whole Loan, as applicable, the Mortgagee (or a trustee appointed by it) having the right to hold and disburse such proceeds as the repair or restoration progresses, or (b) to the payment of the outstanding principal balance of such Mortgage Loan together with any accrued interest thereon.

All premiums on all insurance policies referred to in this section that are required by the Mortgage Loan documents to be paid as of the Cut-off Date have been paid, and such insurance policies name the Mortgagee 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 Non-Serviced Mortgage Loan, the applicable Non-Serviced 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 Mortgagee 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 Mortgagee of termination or cancellation arising because of nonpayment of a premium and at least 30 days’ prior notice to the Mortgagee of 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 Mortgage Loan Seller.

19.              Access; Utilities; Separate Tax Parcels. Based solely on evaluation of the Title Policy (as defined in paragraph 8) and survey, if any, an engineering report or property condition assessment as described in paragraph 12, applicable local law compliance materials as described in paragraph 26, and the ESA (as defined in paragraph 43), each Mortgaged Property (a) is located on or adjacent to a public road and has direct legal access to such road, or has permanent access from a recorded easement or right of way permitting ingress and egress to/from a public road, (b) is served by or has access rights to public or private water and sewer (or well and septic) and other utilities necessary for the current use of the Mortgaged Property, all of which are adequate 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 made or is required to be made to the applicable governing authority for creation of separate tax parcels (or the Mortgage Loan documents so require such application in the future), 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 parcels are created.

Exh. C-8

 

20.              No Encroachments. To the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge based solely on surveys obtained in connection with origination and the Title Policy obtained in connection with the origination of each Mortgage Loan, and except for encroachments that do not materially and adversely affect the current marketability or principal use of the Mortgaged Property: (a) 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 for encroachments that are insured against by the applicable Title Policy; (b) no material improvements on adjoining parcels encroach onto the related Mortgaged Property except for encroachments that are insured against by the applicable Title Policy; and (c) no material improvements encroach upon any easements except for encroachments that are insured against by the applicable Title Policy.

21.              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 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 Mortgage Loan Seller.

22.              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 distinct structural components, such as wiring, plumbing 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 was originated at least equal to 80% of the adjusted issue price of the Mortgage Loan (together with any related Pari Passu Companion Loans) on such date or (ii) at the Closing Date at least equal to 80% of the adjusted issue price of the Mortgage Loan (together with any related Pari Passu Companion Loans) 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 either sub-clause (B)(a)(i) above (substituting the date of the last such modification for the date the Mortgage Loan was originated) or sub-clause (B)(a)(ii), including the proviso thereto. For purposes of the preceding sentence, the Mortgage Loan will not be considered “significantly modified” solely by reason of the Mortgagor having been granted a COVID-19 related forbearance provided that: (a) such Mortgage Loan forbearance is covered by Revenue Procedure 2020-26 (as modified by Revenue Procedure 2021-12) by reason of satisfying

Exh. C-9

 

the requirements for such coverage stated in Section 5.02(2) thereof; and (b) the Mortgage Loan Seller shall have notified the depositor that such forbearance has occurred and notified the depositor of (x) the date on which such forbearance was granted, (y) the length in months of the forbearance, and (z) how the payments in forbearance will be paid (that is, by extension of maturity, change of amortization schedule, etc.). Any Prepayment Premiums 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.

23.              Compliance with Usury Laws. The mortgage rate (exclusive of any default interest, late charges, Yield Maintenance Charge or Prepayment Premium) 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.

24.              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.

25.              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 Mortgage Loan 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.

26.              Local Law Compliance. To the Mortgage Loan 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, a survey, or other affirmative investigation of local law compliance consistent with the investigation conducted by the Mortgage Loan Seller for similar commercial and multifamily mortgage loans intended for securitization, the improvements located on or forming part of each Mortgaged Property securing a Mortgage Loan are in material compliance with applicable laws, zoning ordinances, rules, covenants, and restrictions (collectively “Zoning Regulations”) governing the occupancy, use, and operation of such Mortgaged Property or constitute a legal non-conforming use or structure and any non-conformity with zoning laws constitutes a legal non-conforming use or structure which does not materially and adversely affect the use, operation or value of such Mortgaged Property. In the event of casualty or destruction, (a) the Mortgaged Property may be restored or repaired to the full extent necessary to maintain the use of the structure immediately prior to such casualty or destruction, (b) law and ordinance insurance coverage has been obtained for the Mortgaged Property in amounts customarily required by the Mortgage Loan Seller for similar commercial and multifamily loans intended for securitization, (c) title insurance policy coverage has been obtained with respect to any non-conforming use or structure, or (d) the inability to restore the Mortgaged Property to the full extent of the use or structure immediately prior to the casualty would not materially and adversely affect the use or operation of such Mortgaged Property. The Mortgage

Exh. C-10

 

Loan documents require the related Mortgagor to be qualified to do business in the jurisdiction in which the related Mortgaged Property is located.

27.              Licenses and Permits. Each Mortgagor covenants in the Mortgage Loan documents that it shall keep all material licenses, permits, franchises, certificates of occupancy and applicable governmental approvals necessary for the operation of the Mortgaged Property in full force and effect, and to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge based upon any of 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 Mortgage Loan Seller for similar commercial and multifamily mortgage loans intended for securitization; all such material licenses, permits, franchises, certificates of occupancy and applicable governmental approvals are in effect or the failure to obtain or maintain such material licenses, permits, franchises or certificates of occupancy and applicable governmental approvals does not materially and adversely affect the use and/or operation of the Mortgaged Property as it was used and operated as of the date of origination of the Mortgage Loan or the rights of a holder of the related Mortgage Loan. The Mortgage Loan documents require the related Mortgagor to comply in all material respects with all applicable regulations, zoning and building laws.

28.              Recourse Obligations. The Mortgage Loan documents for each Mortgage Loan (a) provide that such Mortgage Loan becomes full recourse to the Mortgagor and guarantor (which is a natural person or persons, or an entity or entities distinct from the Mortgagor (but may be affiliated with the Mortgagor) that collectively, as of the date of origination of the related Mortgage Loan, have assets other than equity in the related Mortgaged Property that are not de minimis) in any of the following events (or negotiated provisions of substantially similar effect): (i) if any petition for bankruptcy, insolvency, dissolution or liquidation pursuant to federal bankruptcy law, or any similar federal or state law, shall be filed by, consented to, or acquiesced in by, the Mortgagor; (ii) the Mortgagor or guarantor shall have solicited or caused to be solicited petitioning creditors to cause an involuntary bankruptcy filing with respect to the Mortgagor or (iii) voluntary transfers of either the Mortgaged Property or controlling equity interests in the Mortgagor made in violation of the Mortgage Loan documents; and (b) contains provisions for recourse against the Mortgagor and guarantor (which is a natural person or persons, or an entity or entities distinct from the Mortgagor (but may be affiliated with the Mortgagor) that collectively, as of the date of origination of the related Mortgage Loan, have assets other than equity in the related Mortgaged Property that are not de minimis), for losses and damages resulting from the following (or negotiated provisions of substantially similar effect): (i) the Mortgagor’s misappropriation of rents after an event of default, security deposits, insurance proceeds, or condemnation awards; (ii) the Mortgagor’s fraud or intentional material misrepresentation; (iii)  breaches of the environmental covenants in the Mortgage Loan documents; or (iv) the Mortgagor’s commission of intentional material physical waste at 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).

29.              Mortgage Releases. The terms of the related Mortgage or related Mortgage Loan documents do not provide for release of any material portion of the Mortgaged Property from the lien of the Mortgage except (a) a partial release, accompanied by principal repayment, or partial defeasance (as described in paragraph 34) of not less than a specified percentage at least equal to 110% of the related allocated loan amount of such portion of the Mortgaged Property, (b) upon

Exh. C-11

 

payment in full of such Mortgage Loan, (c) upon a Defeasance (defined in paragraph 34 below), (d) releases of out-parcels that are unimproved or other portions of the Mortgaged Property which will not have a material adverse effect on the underwritten value of the Mortgaged Property and which were not afforded any material value in the appraisal obtained at the origination of the Mortgage Loan and are not necessary for physical access to the Mortgaged Property or compliance with zoning requirements, or (e) as required pursuant to an order of condemnation. With respect to any partial release under the preceding clauses (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 Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(b)(2) and (ii) would not cause the subject Mortgage Loan to fail to be a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3)(A) of the Code; or (y) the Mortgagee or servicer can, in accordance with the related Mortgage Loan documents, condition such release of collateral on the related Mortgagor’s delivery of an opinion of tax counsel to the effect specified in the immediately preceding clause (x). For purposes of the preceding clause (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 (together with any related Pari Passu Companion Loans) outstanding after the release, the Mortgagor is required to make a payment of principal in an amount not less than the amount required by the REMIC Provisions.

In the case of any Mortgage Loan, in the event of a taking of any portion of a Mortgaged Property by a State or any political subdivision or authority thereof, whether by legal proceeding or by agreement, unless an opinion of counsel is delivered as specified in clause (y) of the preceding paragraph, the Mortgagor can be required to pay down the principal balance of the Mortgage Loan (together with any related Pari Passu Companion Loans) in an amount not less than the amount required by the REMIC Provisions and, to such extent, the award from any such taking 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 (together with any related Pari Passu Companion Loans).

No such Mortgage Loan that is secured by more than one Mortgaged Property or that is cross-collateralized with another Mortgage Loan permits the release of cross-collateralization of the related Mortgaged Properties or a portion thereof, including due to a partial condemnation, other than in compliance with the REMIC Provisions.

30.              Financial Reporting and Rent Rolls. Each Mortgage Loan requires the Mortgagor to provide the owner or holder of the Mortgage Loan with (a) quarterly (other than for single-tenant properties) and annual operating statements, (b) quarterly (other than for single-tenant properties) rent rolls (or maintenance schedules in the case of Mortgage Loans secured by residential cooperative properties) for properties that have any individual lease which accounts for more than 5% of the in-place base rent, and (c) annual financial statements.

Exh. C-12

 

31.              Acts of Terrorism Exclusion. With respect to each Mortgage Loan over $20 million, and to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge with respect to each Mortgage Loan of $20 million or less, as of origination 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 (collectively referred to as “TRIPRA”), from coverage, or if such coverage is excluded, it is covered by a separate terrorism insurance policy. With respect to each Mortgage Loan, the related Mortgage Loan documents do not expressly waive or prohibit the Mortgagee from requiring coverage for Acts of Terrorism, as defined in TRIPRA, 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 on Schedule C; provided, that if TRIPRA or a similar or subsequent statute is not in effect, then, provided that terrorism insurance is commercially available, the Mortgagor under each Mortgage Loan is required to carry terrorism insurance, but in such event the Mortgagor shall not be required to spend on terrorism insurance coverage more than two times the amount of the insurance premium that is payable in respect of the property and business interruption/rental loss insurance required under the related Mortgage Loan documents (without giving effect to the cost of terrorism and earthquake components of such casualty and business interruption/rental loss insurance) at the time of the origination of the Mortgage Loan, and if the cost of terrorism insurance exceeds such amount, the Mortgagor is required to purchase the maximum amount of terrorism insurance available with funds equal to such amount.

32.              Due on Sale or Encumbrance. Subject to specific exceptions set forth below, each Mortgage Loan contains a “due-on-sale” or other such provision for the acceleration of the payment of the unpaid principal balance of such Mortgage Loan if, without the consent of the holder of the Mortgage (which consent, in some cases, may not be unreasonably withheld) and/or complying with the requirements of the related Mortgage Loan documents (which provide for transfers without the consent of the Mortgagee which are customarily acceptable to the Mortgage Loan Seller, including, but not limited to, transfers of worn-out or obsolete furnishings, fixtures, or equipment promptly replaced with property of equivalent value and functionality and transfers by leases entered into in accordance with the Mortgage Loan documents), (a) the related Mortgaged Property, or any equity interest of greater than 50% in the related Mortgagor, is directly or indirectly pledged, transferred or sold (in each case, a “Transfer”), other than as related to (i) family and estate planning Transfers or Transfers upon death or legal incapacity, (ii) Transfers to certain affiliates as defined in the related Mortgage Loan documents, (iii) Transfers of less than, or other than, a controlling interest in a Mortgagor, (iv) Transfers to another holder of direct or indirect equity in the Mortgagor, a specific Person designated in the related Mortgage Loan documents or a Person satisfying specific criteria identified in the related Mortgage Loan documents, (v) Transfers of common stock in publicly traded companies or (vi) a substitution or release of collateral within the parameters of paragraphs 29 and 34 herein, or (vii) by reason of any mezzanine debt that existed at the origination of the related Mortgage Loan as set forth on Exhibit C-32-1, or future permitted mezzanine debt as set forth on Exhibit C-32-2, 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 of any Mortgage Loan or any subordinate debt that existed at origination and is permitted under the related Mortgage Loan documents, (ii) purchase money security interests (iii) any Mortgage Loan that is cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted with another Mortgage Loan as set forth on Exhibit C-32-3 or (iv) Permitted

Exh. C-13

 

Encumbrances. The Mortgage or other Mortgage Loan documents provide that to the extent any Rating Agency fees are incurred in connection with the review of and consent to any transfer or encumbrance, the Mortgagor is responsible for such payment along with all other reasonable fees and expenses incurred by the Mortgagee relative to such transfer or encumbrance.

33.              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. Each Mortgage Loan with a Cut-off Date Balance of $30 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 and the related Mortgage Loan documents (or if the Mortgage Loan has a Cut-off Date Balance equal to $10 million or less, its organizational documents or the related Mortgage Loan documents) provide substantially to the effect that it was formed or organized solely for the purpose of owning and operating one or more of the Mortgaged Properties and prohibit it from engaging in any business unrelated to such Mortgaged Property or Mortgaged Properties, and whose organizational documents further provide, or which entity represented in the related Mortgage Loan documents, substantially to the effect that it does not have any assets other than those related to its interest in and operation of such Mortgaged Property or Mortgaged Properties, or any indebtedness other than as permitted by the related Mortgage(s) or the other related Mortgage Loan 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 Mortgage Loan that is cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted with the related Mortgage Loan), and that it holds itself out as a legal entity, separate and apart from any other person or entity.

34.              Defeasance. With respect to any Mortgage Loan that, pursuant to the Mortgage Loan documents, can be defeased (a “Defeasance”), (i) the Mortgage Loan documents provide for defeasance as a unilateral right of the Mortgagor, subject to satisfaction of conditions specified in the Mortgage Loan documents; (ii) the Mortgage Loan cannot be defeased within two years after the Closing Date; (iii) the Mortgagor is permitted to pledge only United States “government securities” within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.860G-2(a)(8)(ii), the revenues from which will 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 Premium) or, if the Mortgage Loan is an ARD 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 Premium), 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 110% of the allocated loan amount for the real property to be released; (iv) the defeasance collateral is not permitted to be subject to prepayment, call, or early redemption; (v) 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 in clause (iii) above; (vi) the defeased note and the defeasance collateral are required to be assumed by a Single-Purpose Entity; (vii) the Mortgagor is required to provide an opinion of counsel that the Trustee has a perfected security interest in such collateral prior to any other claim or interest; and (viii) the Mortgagor is required to pay all rating agency fees associated with defeasance (if rating

Exh. C-14

 

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.

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

36.              Ground Leases. For purposes of this Exhibit C, 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 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.

With respect to any Mortgage Loan where the Mortgage Loan is secured by a Ground Leasehold estate in whole or in part, and the related Mortgage does not also encumber the related lessor’s fee interest in such Mortgaged Property, based upon the terms of the Ground Lease and any estoppel or other agreement received from the ground lessor in favor of Mortgage Loan Seller, its successors and assigns (collectively, the “Ground Lease and Related Documents”), Mortgage Loan 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 and Related Documents permit the interest of the lessee to be encumbered by the related Mortgage and do 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. No material change in the terms of the Ground Lease has occurred since its recordation, except by any written instruments which are included in the related Mortgage File;

(B)              The lessor under such Ground Lease has agreed in a writing included in the related Mortgage File (or in such Ground Lease and Related Documents) that the Ground Lease may not be amended, modified, canceled or terminated by agreement of lessor and lessee without the prior written consent of the Mortgagee and that any such action without such consent is not binding on the Mortgagee, its successors or assigns, provided that the Mortgagee has provided lessor with notice of its lien in accordance with the terms of the Ground Lease;

(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 the 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 interests, estates, liens or encumbrances superior to, or of equal priority with, the Mortgage, except for the related

Exh. C-15

 

fee interest of the ground lessor and the Permitted Encumbrances and Title Exceptions; or (ii) is the subject of a subordination, non-disturbance or attornment agreement or similar agreement to which the Mortgagee on the lessor’s fee interest is subject;

(E)              Subject to the notice requirements of the Ground Lease and Related Documents, 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 (or, if such consent is required it either has been obtained or cannot be unreasonably withheld, provided that such Ground Lease has not been terminated and all amounts due thereunder have been paid), 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 (or, if such consent is required it either has been obtained or cannot be unreasonably withheld, provided that such Ground Lease has not been terminated and all amounts due thereunder have been paid);

(F)               The Mortgage Loan Seller has not received any written notice of material default under or notice of termination of such Ground Lease. To the Mortgage Loan 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 Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge, such Ground Lease is in full force and effect as of the Closing Date;

(G)             The Ground Lease and Related Documents require the lessor to give to the Mortgagee written notice of any default and provide that no notice of default or termination is effective against the Mortgagee unless such notice is given to the Mortgagee;

(H)             A Mortgagee 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 Mortgagee’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 Mortgage Loan Seller in connection with the origination of similar commercial or multifamily loans intended for securitization;

(J)                Under the terms of the Ground Lease and Related Documents, any related insurance proceeds or the portion of the condemnation award allocable to the ground lessee’s interest (other than in respect of a total or substantially total loss or taking as addressed in subpart (K)) will be applied either to the repair or to restoration of all or part of the related Mortgaged Property with (so long as such proceeds are in excess of the threshold amount specified in the related Mortgage Loan documents) the Mortgagee 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;

Exh. C-16

 

(K)             In the case of a total or substantially total taking or loss, under the terms of the Ground Lease and Related Documents, 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 Mortgagee cures any defaults which are susceptible to being cured, the ground lessor has agreed to enter into a new lease with the Mortgagee upon termination of the Ground Lease for any reason, including rejection of the Ground Lease in a bankruptcy proceeding.

37.              Servicing. The servicing and collection practices used by the Mortgage Loan Seller with respect to the Mortgage Loan have been, in all respects legal and have met with customary industry standards for servicing of commercial loans for conduit loan programs.

38.              Origination and Underwriting. The origination practices of the Mortgage Loan Seller (or the related originator if the Mortgage Loan 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 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 this Exhibit C.

39.              Intentionally Omitted.

40.              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 in the prior 12 months (or since origination if such Mortgage Loan has been originated within the past 12 months), and as of Cut-off Date, no Mortgage Loan is delinquent (beyond any applicable grace or cure period) in making required payments. To the Mortgage Loan 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 either clause (a) or clause (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 Mortgage Loan Seller in this Exhibit C. No person other than the holder of such Mortgage Loan may declare any event of default under the Mortgage Loan or accelerate any indebtedness under the Mortgage Loan documents.

41.              Bankruptcy. As of the date of origination of the related Mortgage Loan and to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge as of the Cut-off Date, neither the Mortgaged Property (other than any tenants of such Mortgaged Property), nor any portion thereof, is the subject of, and

Exh. C-17

 

no Mortgagor, guarantor or tenant occupying a single-tenant property is a debtor in state or federal bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding.

42.              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 Mortgage Loan that is cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted with another Mortgage Loan and other than as set forth on Exhibit C-32-4, no Mortgage Loan has a Mortgagor that is an Affiliate of a Mortgagor with respect to another Mortgage Loan. An “Affiliate” for purposes of this paragraph (42) means, a Mortgagor that is under direct or indirect common ownership and control with another Mortgagor.

43.              Environmental Conditions. A Phase I environmental site assessment (or update of a previous Phase I and or Phase II environmental site assessment) and, with respect to certain Mortgage Loans, a Phase II environmental site assessment (collectively, an “ESA”) meeting ASTM requirements was 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 (i) did not identify the existence of recognized environmental conditions (as such term is defined in ASTM E1527-13 or its successor, hereinafter “Environmental Condition”) at the related Mortgaged Property or the need for further investigation, or (ii) if the existence of an Environmental Condition or need for further investigation was indicated in any such ESA, then at least one of the following statements is true: (A) an amount reasonably estimated by a reputable environmental consultant to be sufficient to cover the estimated cost to cure any material noncompliance with applicable Environmental Laws or the Environmental Condition has been escrowed by the related Mortgagor and is held or controlled by the related Mortgagee; (B) if the only Environmental Condition relates to the presence of asbestos-containing materials, radon in indoor air, lead based paint or lead in drinking water, the only recommended action in the ESA is the institution of such a plan, an operations or maintenance plan has been required to be instituted by the related Mortgagor that can reasonably be expected to mitigate the identified risk; (C) the Environmental Condition identified in the related environmental report was remediated or abated or contained in all material respects prior to the date hereof, and, if and as appropriate, a no further action, completion or closure letter or its equivalent was obtained from the applicable governmental regulatory authority (or the environmental issue 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) an environmental policy or a lender’s pollution legal liability insurance policy that covers liability for the identified circumstance or condition was obtained from an insurer rated no less than “A-” (or the equivalent) by Moody’s, S&P, Fitch Ratings, Inc. and/or A.M. Best; (E) a party not related to the Mortgagor was identified as the responsible party for such condition or circumstance 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 Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge, except as set forth in the ESA, there is no Environmental Condition (as such term is defined in ASTM E1527-13 or its successor) at the related Mortgaged Property.

44.              Intentionally Omitted.

45.              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 Cut-off Date. The appraisal is signed by an appraiser that (i) (A) is a Member of the Appraisal Institute or (B) has a comparable professional designation and possesses the level of experience required to evaluate commercial real estate collateral, and (ii) to the Mortgage Loan Seller’s knowledge, had no interest, direct or indirect, in the Mortgaged Property or the Mortgagor or in any loan made on the security thereof, and whose compensation is not affected by the approval or disapproval of the Mortgage Loan. Each appraiser has represented in such appraisal or in a supplemental letter that the appraisal satisfies the requirements of the “Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice” as adopted by the Appraisal Standards Board of the Appraisal Foundation.

46.              Mortgage Loan Schedule. The information pertaining to each Mortgage Loan which is set forth in the Mortgage Loan Schedule attached as an exhibit to this Agreement is true and correct in all material respects as of the Cut-off Date and contains all information required by the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to be contained therein.

47.              Cross-Collateralization. No Mortgage Loan is cross-collateralized or cross-defaulted with any other mortgage loan that is outside the Mortgage Pool, except in the case of a Mortgage Loan that is part of a Whole Loan.

48.              Advance of Funds by the Mortgage Loan Seller. Except for loan proceeds advanced at the time of loan origination or other payments contemplated by the Mortgage Loan documents, no advance of funds has been made by the Mortgage Loan Seller to the related Mortgagor, and no funds have been received from any person other than the related Mortgagor or an affiliate, directly, or, to the knowledge of the Mortgage Loan Seller, indirectly for, or on account of, payments due on the Mortgage Loan. Neither the Mortgage Loan 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.

49.              Compliance with Anti-Money Laundering Laws. The Mortgage Loan Seller has complied in all material respects with all applicable anti-money laundering laws and regulations, including without limitation the U.S. Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 and USA Patriot Act of 2001 with respect to the origination of the Mortgage Loan.

For purposes of this Exhibit C, “Mortgagee” means the mortgagee, grantee or beneficiary under any Mortgage, any holder of legal title to any portion of any Mortgage Loan or, if applicable, any agent or servicer on behalf of such party.

For purposes of this Exhibit C, “Mortgagor” means the obligor or obligors on a Mortgage Note, including without limitation, any person that has acquired the related Mortgaged Property and assumed the obligations of the original obligor under the Mortgage Note and including in connection with any Mortgage Loan that utilizes an indemnity deed of trust structure, the borrower and the Mortgaged Property owner/payment guarantor/mortgagor individually and collectively, as the context may require.

The related Whole Loan agreement permits the borrower to enter into a PACE Loan for an amount not to exceed $5,000,000, subject to the lender’s approval and delivery of a rating agency confirmation. The related Whole Loan agreement defines “PACE Loan” as (x) any “Property-Assessed Clean Energy loan” or (y) any other indebtedness, without regard to the name given to such indebtedness, which is (i) incurred for improvements to the Mortgaged Property for the purpose of increasing energy efficiency, increasing use of renewable energy sources, resource conservation, or a combination of the foregoing, and (ii) repaid through multi-year assessments against the Mortgaged Property.

Joe’s Crab Shack (“Joe’s”), a tenant at the Mortgaged Property, has an option to purchase fee simple title to its leased premises (the “Joe’s Release Parcel”) at the expiration of its lease term on August 31, 2025. Joe’s must provide written notice to the borrower at least six months prior to lease expiration, in order to exercise such option.

The Phase I environmental site assessment obtained in connection with the Mortgage Loan identified a controlled recognized environmental condition related to the historical use of the Mortgaged Property as a department store with a tire, battery and accessories store (“TBA”) from July 1976 to August 1987. The TBA utilized four in-ground lifts, a 500-gallon waste oil underground storage tank (“UST”) and an oil-water separator.  In addition, a gasoline service station was operated at the site from July 1976 to 1985, with three 10,000-gallon USTs. All of the USTs were removed in 1985, prior to UST regulations being implemented.  Subsurface investigations identified contamination associated with the former TBA facility, including a benzene plume.  Remedial action conducted at the property consisted of excavating approximately 657 tons of benzene-contaminated soil from an approximately 12,000 square-foot area. On May 19, 2003, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency issued a No Further Remediation letter for the property, which included certain restrictions on the property, including limiting the property to only industrial or commercial use, prohibiting the installation of a groundwater well at the property, and requiring

In March, 2021, Jack Evans, who owns less than 1% of the non-recourse guarantor relating to such Mortgage Loans, but controls the borrower and the non-recourse carveout guarantor in his role as manager of such entities, was named a defendant in a lawsuit relating to disputes among various individuals and entities over the ownership and control of several entities that own and/or control parcels of real property in Utah. Four causes of action name Mr. Evans and/or an entity that he controls: (i) aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty, (ii) civil conspiracy, (iii) tortious interference with economic relations and (iv) injunctive relief to prohibit further alleged misconduct. The plaintiff seeks compensatory damages of at least $3 million, but is also seeking punitive damages of at least 300% of all proven compensatory damages. The non-recourse guarantor is not currently a party to the lawsuit, and the complaint does not allege any wrongdoing by such guarantor. In order to mitigate against any possible change of control that could result from Mr. Evans’ removal as manager of the borrower and guarantor, the loan documents require that, if Mr. Evans is found liable under the lawsuit, each of the borrower and guarantor are required to cause Todd Pedersen (who, along with Mr. Evans, is a co-founder of the guarantor) in the borrower and guarantor to become the replacement manager until the judgment against Mr. Evans is satisfied. In addition, any unauthorized change in control of the guarantor would result in an event of default under the loan documents and could result in full recourse liability to the guarantor.

(Loan No. 23)

There is an existing non-monetary default with respect to the Whole Loan, resulting from the borrower's failure to comply with the cash management provisions in the loan documents. In accordance with the loan documents, the borrower delivered tenant direction letters at origination (October 29, 2020) instructing tenants to deposit rent payments into the established lockbox account. Subsequently, on December 14, 2020, the borrower instructed tenants to deliver rent payments directly to the borrower and not into such lockbox account, in contravention of the loan documents and without the consent of the lender. Since that time, the borrower has been making monthly debt service payments directly to the applicable master servicer instead of having rents deposited and swept from the lockbox account as required by the loan documents. The borrower has expressed concerns regarding the loan boarding process and initial administration of the free rent reserve by the applicable master servicer. The applicable master servicer believes it has addressed these concerns and, on July 28, 2021, sent the borrower a formal reservation of rights and urged compliance with the cash management procedures set forth in the loan documents. To date, the borrower has not provided any evidence that it has cured the non-compliance.

The northerly adjacent property was previously developed with an automotive dealership from the early 1970s until the late 1980s or early 1990s.  Such former dealership was identified on the leaking petroleum storage tank (“LPST”) regulatory database. Review of regulatory information identified two separate LPST cases (one in 1989 and one in 1991) that both received regulatory closure per the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (“TCEQ”). The 1989 LPST case listed soil contamination only, while the 1991 case listed groundwater contamination. The environmental consultant attempted to obtain information from the TCEQ regarding the potential presence of residual groundwater contamination that could be a concern to the Mortgaged Property, however, at the

Sch. C-8

 

time the ESA was issued, no additional information had been received. The foregoing is considered a recognized environmental condition with respect to the Mortgaged Property. The environmental consultant recommended a review of the regulatory file information for the adjacent LPST case in order to evaluate the potential for residual sub-surface contamination on the Mortgaged Property that would be a current concern. The environmental consultant estimated the cost of such review to be $1,000.

43The Court at Oxford Valley (Loan No. 6)

The Mortgaged Property was formerly used as a landfill and firing range. As a result, numerous environmental investigations have occurred on the Mortgaged Property since 1989 that identified contamination of soil and groundwater. In 1995, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (the “PADEP”) approved a Landfill Closure Plan with respect to the Mortgaged Property, which proposed closure of the landfill, off-site disposal of surface waste piles, and remediation of three areas of lead-contaminated surface soils. The PADEP also required that groundwater and methane monitoring be conducted until stated otherwise. A subsequent 1999 letter prepared by the PADEP reportedly stated that the groundwater monitoring was no longer required. The ongoing methane monitoring required by the PADEP is considered a recognized environmental condition. The environmental consultant recommended continuation of the quarterly methane monitoring until otherwise stated and/or no longer required by the PADEP.

43Raymour & Flanigan Campus
(Loan No. 12)

The Phase I environmental site assessment obtained in connection with the Mortgage Loan identified a REC related to the use of a portion of the property as a truck maintenance facility since at least the early 1990s. While such facility has never used in-ground automotive lifts, operations include automotive maintenance, oil changes, tire changes and truck washing. The building is equipped with an oil/water separator (OWS) to filter waste liquid waste streams entering floor drains.

Reportedly, the OWS was formerly equipped with an underground, 300-gallon holding tank for capturing residual oil, which was reportedly closed in-place in 2005 because of its location beneath the building. The environmental consultant observed numerous 55-gallon drums of engine oil and grease being stored in the, along with a 500-gallon and a 250-gallon waste oil ASTs. Most of the observed drums of automotive oil and other products were noted to be stored upon secondary containment pallets. The property appears to utilize a waste oil burner system to dispose of waste oil when possible. A trench drain was observed beneath the pallet storing the waste oil collection drums. The environmental consultant found that the trench drain system and OWS have the potential to contribute to a release of hazardous substances to the site subsurface, should they become compromised. The lender obtained a remedial cost estimate of $454,425 to determine the worst case costs to assess the systems and their impact to soil and groundwater and to achieve regulatory closure. Additionally, little is known about the abandonment of the reported 300-gallon residual oil UST that formerly operated in connection with the OWS, and no records of subsurface sampling were available related to the OWS area. As such, the property’s approximately 30-year history of on-site truck maintenance, presence of an OWS and abandoned residual oil collection UST are considered to represent a recognized environmental condition.

43Monte Cristo Adult Community
(Loan No. 58)

Based on a review of 1937, 1942, 1946, 1950 and 1957 aerial photographs, the environmental consultant concluded that the Mortgaged Property was used for agricultural purposes, which appeared to be row-crop in nature. Based on a review of 1976, 1984 and 1998 aerial photographs, the environmental consultant concluded that the Mortgaged Property appeared to be used for tree-crop type agricultural use. The 1960/1961, 1961/1962 and 1987 topographic maps depict orchards on the south portion of the Mortgaged Property. Based on the former agricultural operations and the current residential use, the environmental consultant recommended that the owner of the Mortgaged Property provide prior environmental reports. Pending availability, the environmental consultant recommended further investigation of the Mortgaged Property.
