In addition, promptly upon the earlier of discovery by a Servicer or receipt of notice by a Servicer of the breach of the representation or covenant of the Seller set forth in Section 5(xii) of the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Holders of the Class P Certificates in any Prepayment Charge, such Servicer shall promptly notify the Seller and the Trustee of such breach. The Trustee shall enforce the obligations of the Seller under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement to remedy such breach to the extent and in the manner set forth in the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement. (b) Any substitution of Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for Deleted Mortgage Loans made pursuant to Section 2.03(a) must be effected prior to the date which is two years after the Startup Day for REMIC I. As to any Deleted Mortgage Loan for which the Seller substitutes a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, such substitution shall be effected by the Seller delivering to the Trustee or the applicable Custodian on behalf of the Trustee, for such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, the Mortgage Note, the Mortgage, the Assignment to the Trustee, and such other documents and agreements, with all necessary endorsements thereon, as are required by Section 2 of the Custodial Agreement, as applicable, together with an Officers' Certificate providing that each such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan satisfies the definition thereof and specifying the Substitution Shortfall Amount (as described below), if any, in connection with such substitution. The applicable Custodian on behalf of the Trustee shall acknowledge receipt of such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans and, within ten (10) Business Days thereafter, review such documents and deliver to the Depositor, the Trustee and the related Servicer, with respect to such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, an initial certification pursuant to the Custodial Agreement, with any applicable exceptions noted thereon. Within one year of the date of substitution, the applicable Custodian on behalf of the Trustee shall deliver to the Depositor, the Trustee and the related Servicer a final certification pursuant to the Custodial Agreement with respect to such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, with any applicable exceptions noted thereon. Monthly Payments due with respect to Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans in the month of substitution are not part of REMIC I and will be retained by the Seller. For the month of substitution, distributions to Certificateholders will reflect the Monthly Payment due on such Deleted Mortgage Loan on or before the Due Date in the month of substitution, and the Seller shall thereafter be entitled to retain all amounts subsequently received in respect of such Deleted Mortgage Loan. The Depositor shall give or cause to be given written notice to the Certificateholders that such substitution has taken place, shall amend the Mortgage Loan Schedule to reflect the removal of such Deleted Mortgage Loan from the terms of this Agreement and the substitution of the Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans and shall deliver a copy of such amended Mortgage Loan Schedule to the Trustee and the related Servicer. Upon such substitution, such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans shall constitute part of the Trust Fund and shall be subject in all respects to the terms of this Agreement and the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement, including all applicable representations and warranties thereof included herein or in the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement. For any month in which the Seller substitutes one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for one or more Deleted Mortgage Loans, the related Servicer will determine the amount (the "Substitution Shortfall Amount"), if any, by which the aggregate Purchase Price of all such Deleted Mortgage Loans exceeds the aggregate of, as to each such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan, the Scheduled Principal Balance thereof as of the date of substitution, together with one month's interest on such Scheduled Principal Balance at the applicable Net Mortgage Rate, plus all outstanding P&I Advances and Servicing Advances (including Nonrecoverable P&I Advances and Nonrecoverable Servicing Advances) related thereto. On the date of such substitution, the Seller will deliver or cause to be delivered to the related Servicer for deposit in the related Collection Account an amount equal to the Substitution Shortfall Amount, if any, and the Trustee or the applicable Custodian on behalf of the Trustee, upon receipt of the related Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, upon receipt of a request for release in the form attached to the respective Custodial Agreement and certification by the related Servicer of such deposit, shall release to the Seller the related Mortgage File or Files and the Trustee shall execute and deliver such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, representation or warranty, as the Seller shall deliver to it and as shall be necessary to vest therein any Deleted Mortgage Loan released pursuant hereto. In addition, the Seller shall obtain at its own expense and deliver to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such substitution will not cause (a) any federal tax to be imposed on any Trust REMIC, including without limitation, any federal tax imposed on "prohibited transactions" under Section 860F(a)(1) of the Code or on "contributions after the startup date" under Section 860G(d)(1) of the Code, or (b) any Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any Certificate is outstanding. (c) Upon discovery by the Depositor, the Seller, a Servicer or the Trustee that any Mortgage Loan does not constitute a "qualified mortgage" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code, the party discovering such fact shall within two (2) Business Days give written notice thereof to the other parties. In connection therewith, the Seller shall repurchase or substitute one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for the affected Mortgage Loan within ninety (90) days of the earlier of discovery or receipt of such notice with respect to such affected Mortgage Loan. Such repurchase or substitution shall be made by (i) the Seller if the affected Mortgage Loan's status as a non-qualified mortgage is or results from a breach of any representation, warranty or covenant made by the Seller under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement or (ii) the Depositor, if the affected Mortgage Loan's status as a non-qualified mortgage does not result from a breach of a representation or warranty. Any such repurchase or substitution shall be made in the same manner as set forth in Section 2.03(a). The Trustee shall reconvey to the Seller the Mortgage Loan to be released pursuant hereto in the same manner, and on the same terms and conditions, as it would a Mortgage Loan repurchased for breach of a representation or warranty. (d) With respect to a breach of the representations made pursuant to Section 5(xii) of the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement that materially and adversely affects the value of such Mortgage Loan or the interest therein of the Certificateholders, the Seller shall be required to take the actions set forth in this Section 2.03. (e) Within ninety (90) days of the earlier of discovery by a Servicer or receipt of notice by a Servicer of the breach of any representation, warranty or covenant of such Servicer set forth in Section 2.05 which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Certificateholders in any Mortgage Loan or Prepayment Charge, such Servicer shall cure such breach in all material respects.

ARTICLE III ADMINISTRATION AND SERVICING OF THE MORTGAGE LOANS; ACCOUNTS SECTION 3.01. The Servicers to Act as Servicers. It is intended that Countrywide will purchase the servicing rights relating to the New Century Mortgage Loans on or about September 1, 2005, and will service such New Century Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In the event that Countrywide does not purchase the servicing rights relating to the New Century Mortgage Loans, a qualified successor servicer will be appointed in accordance with Section 8.02 hereof and Countrywide will not have any obligations as a Servicer with respect to the New Century Mortgage Loans under this Agreement unless otherwise agreed by the parties hereto. The obligations of each of Countrywide, Saxon and Ocwen hereunder to service and administer the Mortgage Loans shall be limited to the New Century Mortgage Loans, the Saxon Mortgage Loans (including the WMC Mortgage Loans) and the Ocwen Mortgage Loans, respectively, and with respect to the duties and obligations of each Servicer, references herein to the related Mortgage Loans shall be limited to (i) the New Century Mortgage Loans (and the related proceeds thereof and related REO Properties) in the case of Countrywide, (ii) the Saxon Mortgage Loans (and the related proceeds and related REO Properties) in the case of Saxon, and (iii) the Ocwen Mortgage Loans (and the related proceeds and related REO Properties) in the case of Ocwen, and in no event shall any Servicer have any responsibility or liability with respect to any Mortgage Loans serviced by the other Servicers hereunder. In addition, from and after the Closing Date to the Servicing Transfer Date, the New Century Mortgage Loans will be serviced and administered by the Interim Servicer pursuant to the Interim Servicing Agreement, and no Servicer will have any responsibility to service or administer such Mortgage Loans or have any other obligation with respect to such Mortgage Loans during that period. On and after the Closing Date with respect to the Ocwen Mortgage Loans and the Saxon Mortgage Loans and on and after the Servicing Transfer Date with respect to the New Century Mortgage Loans, the Servicers shall service and administer the Mortgage Loans on behalf of the Trust Fund and in the best interests of and for the benefit of the Certificateholders (as determined by the related Servicer in its reasonable judgment) in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the respective Mortgage Loans and all applicable law and regulations and, to the extent consistent with such terms, in the same manner in which it services and administers similar mortgage loans for its own portfolio, giving due consideration to customary and usual standards of practice of prudent mortgage lenders and loan servicers administering similar mortgage loans but without regard to: (i) any relationship that the related Servicer or any Affiliate of the related Servicer may have with the related Mortgagor; (ii) the ownership of any Certificate by the related Servicer or any Affiliate of such Servicer; (iii) the related Servicer's obligation to make P&I Advances or Servicing Advances; or (iv) the related Servicer's right to receive compensation for its services hereunder; provided, however, that (a) with respect to the New Century Mortgage Loans serviced pursuant to the Interim Servicing Agreement, Countrywide will be entitled to seek indemnification in accordance with Section 7.03 hereof for any liability attributable to it as a result of the acts and omissions of the Interim Servicer or any other prior servicer or the failure of an Interim Servicer or any other prior servicer to service the New Century Mortgage Loans in accordance with the Interim Servicing Agreement; and (b) with respect to the WMC Mortgage Loans serviced pursuant to the Interim Subservicing Agreement, Saxon will be entitled to seek indemnification in accordance with Section 7.03 hereof for any liability attributable to it as a result of the acts and omissions of the Interim Subservicer or the failure of the Interim Subservicer to service the WMC Mortgage Loans in accordance with the Interim Subservicing Agreement. To the extent consistent with the foregoing, each Servicer shall also seek to maximize the timely and complete recovery of principal and interest on the Mortgage Notes and shall waive (or permit a Sub-Servicer to waive) a Prepayment Charge only under the following circumstances: (i) such waiver is standard and customary in servicing similar Mortgage Loans and such waiver is related to a default or reasonably foreseeable default and would, in the reasonable judgment of such Servicer, maximize recovery of total proceeds taking into account the value of such Prepayment Charge and the related Mortgage Loan and, if such waiver is made in connection with a refinancing of the related Mortgage Loan, such refinancing is related to a default or a reasonably foreseeable default, (ii) such Prepayment Charge is unenforceable in accordance with applicable law or the collection of such related Prepayment Charge would otherwise violate applicable law or (iii) the collection of such Prepayment Charge would be considered "predatory" pursuant to written guidance published or issued by any applicable federal, state or local regulatory authority acting in its official capacity and having jurisdiction over such matters. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, in the event the Prepayment Charge payable under the terms of the Mortgage Note is less than the amount of the Prepayment Charge set forth in the Prepayment Charge Schedule or other information provided to the related Servicer, such Servicer shall not have any liability or obligation with respect to such difference, and in addition shall not have any liability or obligation to pay the amount of any uncollected Prepayment Charge if the failure to collect such amount is the direct result of inaccurate or incomplete information on the Prepayment Charge Schedule. Subject only to the above-described servicing standards (the "Accepted Servicing Practices") and the terms of this Agreement and of the related Mortgage Loans, each Servicer shall have full power and authority, to do or cause to be done any and all things in connection with such servicing and administration which it may deem necessary or desirable with the goal of maximizing proceeds of the Mortgage Loan. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Servicer in its own name is hereby authorized and empowered by the Trustee when the related Servicer believes it appropriate in its best judgment, to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Trust Fund, the Certificateholders and the Trustee or any of them, and upon written notice to the Trustee, any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge or subordination, and all other comparable instruments, with respect to the related Mortgage Loans and the related Mortgaged Properties and to institute foreclosure proceedings or obtain a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure so as to convert the ownership of such properties, and to hold or cause to be held title to such properties, on behalf of the Trustee, for the benefit of the Trust Fund and the Certificateholders. Each Servicer shall service and administer the related Mortgage Loans in accordance with applicable state and federal law and shall provide to the Mortgagors any reports required to be provided to them thereby. Each Servicer shall also comply in the performance of this Agreement with all reasonable rules and requirements of each insurer under any standard hazard insurance policy. Subject to Section 3.14, the Trustee shall execute, at the written request of a Servicer, and furnish to such Servicer a power of attorney in the form of Exhibit D hereto and other documents necessary or appropriate to enable such Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties hereunder and furnished to the Trustee by such Servicer, and the Trustee shall not be liable for the actions of such Servicer under such powers of attorney and shall be indemnified by such Servicer for any cost, liability or expense incurred by the Trustee in connection with such Servicer's use or misuse of any such power of attorney. In accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, each Servicer shall make or cause to be made Servicing Advances as necessary for the purpose of effecting the payment of taxes and assessments on the Mortgaged Properties, which Servicing Advances shall be reimbursable in the first instance from related collections from the related Mortgagors pursuant to Section 3.07, and further as provided in Section 3.09; provided, however, the related Servicer shall only make such Servicing Advance if the related Mortgagor has not made such payment and if the failure to make such Servicing Advance would result in the loss of the related Mortgaged Property due to a tax sale or foreclosure as result of a tax lien. Any cost incurred by a Servicer in effecting the payment of taxes and assessments on a Mortgaged Property shall not, for the purpose of calculating the Stated Principal Balance of such Mortgage Loan or distributions to Certificateholders, be added to the unpaid principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan, notwithstanding that the terms of such Mortgage Loan so permit. The parties to this Agreement acknowledge that Servicing Advances shall be reimbursable pursuant to Section 3.09 of this Agreement, and agree that no Servicing Advance shall be rejected or disallowed by any party unless it has been shown that such Servicing Advance was not made in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties understand and agree that, with respect to any Mortgage Loan (1) the Master Servicer shall not approve the reimbursement of any Servicing Advance made with respect to such Mortgage Loan prior to the Cut-off Date or the Subsequent Cut-off Date (each, a "Pre-Cut-off Date Advance") unless and until it has received a Servicing Advance Schedule listing the amount of Pre-Cut-off Date Advances made in respect of such Mortgage Loan from (a) the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer with respect to any Mortgage Loans or Subsequent Mortgage Loans that were transferred to such Servicer or Interim Servicer prior to the Cut-off Date or prior to the Subsequent Cut-off Date and/or (b) the Depositor with respect to any Mortgage Loans or Subsequent Mortgage Loans that were transferred to the related Servicer or Interim Servicer after the Cut-off Date or the Subsequent Cut-off Date, as applicable, (2) the aggregate Pre-Cut-off Date Advances reimbursable hereunder with respect to such Mortgage Loan shall not exceed the amount of Pre-Cut-off Date Advances for such Mortgage Loan shown on the Servicing Advance Schedule delivered to the Master Servicer, (3) the Depositor shall be deemed to have agreed with and approved the Pre-Cut-off Date Advances shown on any Servicing Advance Schedule furnished to the Master Servicer, and (4) the Master Servicer will have no liability to the Depositor, the related Servicer or any other Person, including any Certificateholder, for approving reimbursement of related Pre-Cut-off Date Advances so long as the aggregate amount of such advances reimbursed hereunder does not exceed of the amount of Pre-Cut-off Date Advances for such Mortgage Loan shown on the Servicing Advance Schedule. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, no Servicer may make any future advances with respect to a Mortgage Loan and no Servicer shall permit any modification with respect to any related Mortgage Loan that would change the Mortgage Rate, reduce or increase the principal balance (except for reductions resulting from actual payments of principal) or change the final maturity date on such related Mortgage Loan (unless, as provided in Section 3.06, the related Mortgagor is in default with respect to the related Mortgage Loan or such default is, in the judgment of the related Servicer, reasonably foreseeable) or any modification, waiver or amendment of any term of any related Mortgage Loan that would both (A) effect an exchange or reissuance of such Mortgage Loan under Section 1001 of the Code (or final, temporary or proposed Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder) and (B) cause any Trust REMIC created hereunder to fail to qualify as a REMIC under the Code or the imposition of any tax on "prohibited transactions" or "contributions after the startup date" under the REMIC Provisions. In the event that the Mortgage Loan Documents relating to a Mortgage Loan contain provisions requiring the related Mortgagor to arbitrate disputes (at the option of the Trustee, on behalf of the Trust), the Trustee hereby authorizes the related Servicer to waive the Trustee's right or option to arbitrate disputes and to send written notice of such waiver to the Mortgagor, although the Mortgagor may still require arbitration at its option. From and after the Servicing Transfer Date and the Interim Subservicing Transfer Dates, the related Servicer will fully furnish, in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and its implementing regulations, accurate and complete information (e.g., favorable and unfavorable) on its borrower credit files to Equifax, Experian and Trans Union Credit Information Company or their successors on a monthly basis. SECTION 3.02. Sub-Servicing Agreements Between a Servicer and Sub-Servicers. Each Servicer may arrange for the subservicing of any Mortgage Loan by a Sub- Servicer pursuant to a Sub-Servicing Agreement; provided that such sub-servicing arrangement and the terms of the related Sub-Servicing Agreement must provide for the servicing of such Mortgage Loans in a manner consistent with the servicing arrangements contemplated hereunder. Each Sub-Servicer shall be (i) authorized to transact business in the state or states where the related Mortgaged Properties it is to service are situated, if and to the extent required by applicable law to enable the Sub-Servicer to perform its obligations hereunder and under the Sub-Servicing Agreement and (ii) a Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae approved mortgage servicer. Notwithstanding the provisions of any Sub-Servicing Agreement, any of the provisions of this Agreement relating to agreements or arrangements between a Servicer or a Sub-Servicer or reference to actions taken through such Servicer or otherwise, the related Servicer shall remain obligated and liable to the Depositor, the Trustee and the Certificateholders for the servicing and administration of the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement without diminution of such obligation or liability by virtue of such Sub-Servicing Agreements or arrangements or by virtue of indemnification from the Sub-Servicer and to the same extent and under the same terms and conditions as if the related Servicer alone were servicing and administering the Mortgage Loans. Every Sub-Servicing Agreement entered into by a Servicer shall contain a provision giving the successor Servicer the option to terminate such agreement in the event a successor Servicer is appointed. All actions of each Sub-Servicer performed pursuant to the related Sub-Servicing Agreement shall be performed as an agent of the related Servicer with the same force and effect as if performed directly by the related Servicer. For purposes of this Agreement, the related Servicer shall be deemed to have received any collections, recoveries or payments with respect to the Mortgage Loans that are received by a Sub-Servicer regardless of whether such payments are remitted by the Sub-Servicer to the related Servicer. For purposes of this Agreement, the Assignment Agreements shall not be deemed to be Sub-Servicing Agreements. SECTION 3.03. Successor Sub-Servicers. Any Sub-Servicing Agreement shall provide that the related Servicer shall be entitled to terminate any Sub-Servicing Agreement and to either itself directly service the related Mortgage Loans or enter into a Sub-Servicing Agreement with a successor Sub-Servicer which qualifies under Section 3.02. Any Sub-Servicing Agreement shall include the provision that such agreement may be immediately terminated by any successor to the related Servicer (which may be the Trustee or the Master Servicer) without fee, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, in the event that the related Servicer (or any successor to the related Servicer) shall, for any reason, no longer be the Servicer of the related Mortgage Loans (including termination due to a Servicer Event of Default). SECTION 3.04. No Contractual Relationship Between Sub-Servicer, Trustee or the Certificateholders. Any Sub-Servicing Agreement and any other transactions or services relating to the Mortgage Loans involving a Sub-Servicer shall be deemed to be between the Sub-Servicer and the related Servicer alone and the Master Servicer, Trustee and the Certificateholders shall not be deemed parties thereto and shall have no claims, rights, obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to any Sub-Servicer except as set forth in Section 3.05. SECTION 3.05. Assumption or Termination of Sub-Servicing Agreement by Successor Servicer. In connection with the assumption of the responsibilities, duties and liabilities and of the authority, power and rights of a Servicer hereunder by a successor Servicer (which may be the Trustee or the Master Servicer) pursuant to Section 8.02, it is understood and agreed that such Servicer's rights and obligations under any Sub-Servicing Agreement then in force between such Servicer and a Sub-Servicer shall be assumed simultaneously by such successor Servicer without act or deed on the part of such successor Servicer; provided, however, that any successor Servicer may terminate the Sub-Servicer. Each Servicer shall, upon the reasonable request of the Master Servicer, but at its own expense, deliver to the assuming party documents and records relating to each Sub-Servicing Agreement and an accounting of amounts collected and held by it and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the Sub-Servicing Agreements to the assuming party. The Servicing Fee payable to any such successor Servicer shall be payable from payments received on the Mortgage Loans in the amount and in the manner set forth in this Agreement. SECTION 3.06. Collection of Certain Mortgage Loan Payments. Each Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the related Mortgage Loans, and shall, to the extent such procedures shall be consistent with this Agreement and Accepted Servicing Practices, follow such collection procedures as it would follow with respect to mortgage loans comparable to the Mortgage Loans and held for its own account. Consistent with the foregoing, each Servicer may in its discretion (i) waive any late payment charge or, if applicable, penalty interest or (ii) extend the due dates for the Monthly Payments due on a Mortgage Note related to a Mortgage Loan for a period of not greater than 180 days; provided that any extension pursuant to this clause shall not affect the amortization schedule of any Mortgage Loan for purposes of any computation hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any Mortgage Loan is in default or, in the judgment of the related Servicer, such default is reasonably foreseeable, the related Servicer, consistent with Accepted Servicing Practices may waive, modify or vary any term of such Mortgage Loan (including modifications that change the Mortgage Rate, forgive the payment of principal or interest or extend the final maturity date of such Mortgage Loan), accept payment from the related Mortgagor of an amount less than the Stated Principal Balance in final satisfaction of such Mortgage Loan, or consent to the postponement of strict compliance with any such term or otherwise grant indulgence to any Mortgagor if in the related Servicer's determination such waiver, modification, postponement or indulgence is not materially adverse to the interests of the Certificateholders (taking into account any estimated Realized Loss that might result absent such action). SECTION 3.07. Collection of Taxes, Assessments and Similar Items; Servicing Accounts. To the extent the terms of a Mortgage provide for Escrow Payments, the related Servicer shall establish and maintain one or more accounts (the "Servicing Accounts"), into which all collections from the Mortgagors (or related advances from Sub-Servicers) for the payment of taxes, assessments, fire, flood, and hazard insurance premiums, and comparable items for the account of the Mortgagors ("Escrow Payments") shall be deposited and retained. Servicing Accounts shall be Eligible Accounts. the related Servicer shall deposit in the clearing account in which it customarily deposits payments and collections on mortgage loans in connection with its mortgage loan servicing activities on a daily basis, and in no event more than one Business Day after the related Servicer's receipt thereof, all Escrow Payments collected on account of the Mortgage Loans and shall thereafter deposit such Escrow Payments in the Servicing Accounts, in no event later than the second Business Day after the deposit of good funds into the clearing account, and retain therein, all Escrow Payments collected on account of the Mortgage Loans, for the purpose of effecting the timely payment of any such items as required under the terms of this Agreement. Withdrawals of amounts from a Servicing Account may be made by the related Servicer only to (i) effect timely payment of taxes, assessments, fire, flood, and hazard insurance premiums, and comparable items; (ii) reimburse itself out of related collections for any Servicing Advances made pursuant to Section 3.01 (with respect to taxes and assessments) and Section 3.11 (with respect to fire, flood and hazard insurance); (iii) refund to Mortgagors any sums as may be determined to be overages; (iv) pay interest, if required and as described below, to Mortgagors on balances in the Servicing Account; or, only to the extent not required to be paid to the related Mortgagors, to pay itself interest on balances in the Servicing Account; or (v) clear and terminate the Servicing Account at the termination of the related Servicer's obligations and responsibilities in respect of the Mortgage Loans under this Agreement in accordance with Article X. As part of its servicing duties, each Servicer shall pay to the Mortgagors interest on funds in Servicing Accounts, to the extent required by law and, to the extent that interest earned on funds in the Servicing Accounts is insufficient, to pay such interest from its or their own funds, without any reimbursement therefor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Servicer shall be obligated to collect Escrow Payments if the related Mortgage Loan does not require such payments but each Servicer shall nevertheless be obligated to make Servicing Advances as provided in Section 3.01 and Section 3.11. In the event a Servicer shall deposit in the Servicing Accounts any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time withdraw such amount from the Servicing Accounts, any provision to the contrary notwithstanding. To the extent that a Mortgage does not provide for Escrow Payments, the related Servicer (i) shall determine whether any such payments are made by the Mortgagor in a manner and at a time that is necessary to avoid the loss of the Mortgaged Property due to a tax sale or the foreclosure as a result of a tax lien and (ii) shall ensure that all insurance required to be maintained on the Mortgaged Property pursuant to this Agreement is maintained. If any such payment has not been made and the related Servicer receives notice of a tax lien with respect to the Mortgage Loan being imposed, the related Servicer shall, promptly and to the extent required to avoid loss of the Mortgaged Property, advance or cause to be advanced funds necessary to discharge such lien on the Mortgaged Property unless the related Servicer determines the advance to be nonrecoverable. Each Servicer assumes full responsibility for the payment of all such bills and shall effect payments of all such bills irrespective of the Mortgagor's faithful performance in the payment of same or the making of the Escrow Payments and shall make Servicing Advances to effect such payments subject to its determination of recoverability. SECTION 3.08. Collection Accounts and Distribution Account. (a) On behalf of the Trust Fund, each Servicer shall establish and maintain one or more "Collection Accounts", held in trust for the benefit of the Trustee and the Certificateholders. On behalf of the Trust Fund, each Servicer shall deposit or cause to be deposited in the clearing account in which it customarily deposits payments and collections on mortgage loans in connection with its mortgage loan servicing activities on a daily basis, and in no event more than one Business Day after such Servicer's receipt thereof, and shall thereafter deposit in the related Collection Account, in no event later than two Business Days after the deposit of good funds into the clearing account, as and when received or as otherwise required hereunder, the following payments and collections received or made by it on or subsequent to the Cut-off Date other than amounts attributable to a Due Date on or prior to the Cut-off Date: (i) all payments on account of principal, including Principal Prepayments, on the related Mortgage Loans; (ii) all payments on account of interest (net of the related Servicing Fee and any Prepayment Interest Excess) on each related Mortgage Loan; (iii) all Insurance Proceeds and Liquidation Proceeds (other than proceeds collected in respect of any particular REO Property) and all Subsequent Recoveries with respect to the related Mortgage Loans; (iv) any amounts required to be deposited by the related Servicer pursuant to Section 3.10 in connection with any losses realized on Permitted Investments with respect to funds held in the Collection Account; (v) any amounts required to be deposited by the related Servicer pursuant to the second paragraph of Section 3.11(a) in respect of any blanket policy deductibles; (vi) any Purchase Price or Substitution Shortfall Amount delivered to the related Servicer and all proceeds (net of amounts payable or reimbursable to the related Servicer, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Custodians or the Securities Administrator) of Mortgage Loans purchased in accordance with Section 2.03, Section 3.13 or Section 10.01; and (vii) any Prepayment Charges collected by the related Servicer in connection with the Principal Prepayment of any of the Mortgage Loans or amounts required to be deposited by the related Servicer in connection with a breach of its obligations under Section 2.05. The foregoing requirements for deposit in the related Collection Account shall be exclusive, it being understood and agreed that, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, payments in the nature of late payment charges, assumption fees or other similar fees need not be deposited by the related Servicer in the related Collection Account and may be retained by the related Servicer as additional compensation. In the event a Servicer shall deposit in the related Collection Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time withdraw such amount from the related Collection Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. (b) On behalf of the Trust Fund, the Securities Administrator shall establish and maintain one or more accounts (such account or accounts, the "Distribution Account"), held in trust for the benefit of the Trustee, the Trust Fund and the Certificateholders. On behalf of the Trust Fund, each Servicer shall deliver to the Securities Administrator in immediately available funds for deposit in the Distribution Account on or before 12:00 noon New York time on the Servicer Remittance Date, that portion of the Available Distribution Amount (calculated without regard to the references in clause (2) of the definition thereof to amounts that may be withdrawn from the Distribution Account) for the related Distribution Date then on deposit in the related Collection Account and the amount of all Prepayment Charges collected by the related Servicer in connection with the Principal Prepayment of any of the Mortgage Loans then on deposit in the related Collection Account and the amount of any funds reimbursable to an Advance Financing Person pursuant to Section 3.25. If the balance on deposit in a Collection Account exceeds $100,000 as of the commencement of business on any Business Day and the Collection Account constitutes an Eligible Account solely pursuant to clause (ii) of the definition of "Eligible Account," the related Servicer shall, on or before 5:00 p.m. New York time on such Business Day, withdraw from the Collection Account any and all amounts payable or reimbursable to the Depositor, the related Servicer, the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator or the Seller pursuant to Section 3.09 and shall pay such amounts to the Persons entitled thereto or shall establish a separate Collection Account (which shall also be an Eligible Account) and withdraw from the existing Collection Account the amount on deposit therein in excess of $100,000 and deposit such excess in the newly created Collection Account. With respect to any remittance received by the Securities Administrator on the Servicer Remittance Date on which such payment was due, the Securities Administrator shall send written notice thereof to the related Servicer. The related Servicer shall pay to the Securities Administrator interest on any such late payment by such Servicer at an annual rate equal to Prime Rate (as defined in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL) plus one percentage point, but in no event greater than the maximum amount permitted by applicable law. Such interest shall be paid by the related Servicer to the Securities Administrator on the date such late payment is made and shall cover the period commencing with the day following such Servicer Remittance Date and ending with the Business Day on which such payment is made, both inclusive. The payment by the related Servicer of any such interest, or the failure of the Securities Administrator to notify the related Servicer of such interest, shall not be deemed an extension of time for payment or a waiver of any Event of Default by the related Servicer. (c) Funds in the Collection Accounts and funds in the Distribution Account may be invested in Permitted Investments in accordance with the provisions set forth in Section 3.10. Each Servicer shall give notice to the Trustee, the Securities Administrator and the Master Servicer of the location of the Collection Account maintained by it when established and prior to any change thereof. The Securities Administrator shall give notice to the Servicers and the Depositor of the location of the Distribution Account when established and prior to any change thereof. (d) Funds held in the Collection Account at any time may be delivered by the related Servicer in immediately available funds to the Securities Administrator for deposit in the Distribution Account. In the event a Servicer shall deliver to the Securities Administrator for deposit in the Distribution Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time request that the Securities Administrator withdraw such amount from the Distribution Account and remit to it any such amount, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. In no event shall the Securities Administrator incur liability as a result of withdrawals from the Distribution Account at the direction of a Servicer in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence. In addition, each Servicer shall deliver to the Securities Administrator no later than the Servicer Remittance Date the amounts set forth in clauses (i) through (iv) below: (i) any P&I Advances, as required pursuant to Section 5.03; (ii) any amounts required to be deposited pursuant to Section 3.21(d) or 3.21(f) in connection with any related REO Property; (iii) any amounts to be paid in connection with a purchase of Mortgage Loans and REO Properties pursuant to Section 10.01; and (iv) any amounts required to be deposited pursuant to Section 3.22 in connection with any Prepayment Interest Shortfalls. SECTION 3.09. Withdrawals from the Collection Accounts and Distribution Account. (a) Each Servicer shall, from time to time, make withdrawals from the related Collection Account for any of the following purposes or as described in Section 5.03: (i) to remit to the Securities Administrator for deposit in the Distribution Account the amounts required to be so remitted pursuant to Section 3.08(b) or permitted to be so remitted pursuant to the first sentence of Section 3.08(d); (ii) subject to Section 3.13(d), to reimburse itself (including any successor Servicer) for P&I Advances made by it, but only to the extent of amounts received which represent Late Collections (net of the related Servicing Fees) of Monthly Payments on related Mortgage Loans with respect to which such P&I Advances were made in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.03; (iii) subject to Section 3.13(d), to pay itself any unpaid Servicing Fees and reimburse itself any unreimbursed Servicing Advances with respect to each related Mortgage Loan, but only to the extent of any Liquidation Proceeds and Insurance Proceeds received with respect to such related Mortgage Loan; (iv) to pay to itself as servicing compensation (in addition to the Servicing Fee) on the Servicer Remittance Date any interest or investment income earned on funds deposited in the related Collection Account; (v) to pay to itself or the Seller, as the case may be, with respect to each related Mortgage Loan that has previously been purchased or replaced pursuant to Section 2.03 or Section 3.13(c) all amounts received thereon not included in the Purchase Price or the Substitution Shortfall Amount; (vi) to reimburse itself (including any successor to the related Servicer) for (A) any P&I Advance or Servicing Advance previously made by it which the related Servicer has determined to be a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance or a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.03 provided however, that no Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement for any Servicing Advance made prior to the Cut-off Date if such Servicer determines that such Servicing Advance constitutes a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance; or (B) any unpaid Servicing Fees to the extent not recoverable from Liquidation Proceeds, Insurance Proceeds or other amounts received with respect to the related Mortgage Loan under Section 3.06(a)(iii); (vii) to reimburse itself or the Depositor for expenses incurred by or reimbursable to itself or the Depositor, as the case may be, pursuant to Section 3.01 or Section 7.03; (viii) to reimburse itself or the Trustee, as the case may be, for expenses reasonably incurred in respect of the breach or defect giving rise to the purchase obligation under Section 2.03 of this Agreement that were included in the Purchase Price of the related Mortgage Loan, including any expenses arising out of the enforcement of the purchase obligation; (ix) to pay, or to reimburse itself for advances in respect of, expenses incurred in connection with any related Mortgage Loan pursuant to Section 3.13(b); (x) to pay to itself any Prepayment Interest Excess on the related Mortgage Loans to the extent not retained pursuant to Section 3.08(a)(ii)); and (xi) to clear and terminate the Collection Account pursuant to Section 10.01. Each Servicer shall keep and maintain separate accounting, on a Mortgage Loan by Mortgage Loan basis, for the purpose of justifying any withdrawal from the related Collection Account, to the extent held by or on behalf of it, pursuant to subclauses (ii), (iii), (v), (vi), (vii), (viii), (ix) and (x) above. (b) The Securities Administrator shall, from time to time, make withdrawals from the Distribution Account, for any of the following purposes, without priority: (i) to make distributions to Certificateholders in accordance with Section 5.01; (ii) to pay to itself, the Custodians and the Master Servicer amounts to which it is entitled pursuant to Section 9.05 or any other provision of this Agreement and any Extraordinary Trust Fund Expenses; (iii) to reimburse itself or the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 8.02; (iv) reserved; (v) to pay any amounts in respect of taxes pursuant to Section 11.01(g)(v); (vi) to pay the Master Servicing Fee to the Master Servicer; (vii) to pay the Credit Risk Management Fee to the Credit Risk Manager; and (viii) to clear and terminate the Distribution Account pursuant to Section 10.01. SECTION 3.10. Investment of Funds in the Investment Accounts. (a) Each Servicer may direct, by means of written directions (which may be standing directions), any depository institution maintaining the related Collection Account to invest the funds in such Collection Account (for purposes of this Section 3.10, an "Investment Account") in one or more Permitted Investments bearing interest or sold at a discount, and maturing, unless payable on demand, (i) no later than the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if a Person other than the Securities Administrator is the obligor thereon, and (ii) no later than the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if the Securities Administrator is the obligor on such Permitted Investment. Amounts in the Distribution Account may be invested in Permitted Investments as directed in writing by the Master Servicer and maturing, unless payable on demand, (i) no later than the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if a Person other than the Securities Administrator is the obligor thereon, and (ii) no later than the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if the Securities Administrator is the obligor thereon. All such Permitted Investments shall be held to maturity, unless payable on demand. Any investment of funds shall be made in the name of the Trustee (in its capacity as such) or in the name of a nominee of the Trustee. The Securities Administrator shall be entitled to sole possession over each such investment in the Distribution Account and, subject to subsection (b) below, the income thereon, and any certificate or other instrument evidencing any such investment shall be delivered directly to the Securities Administrator or its agent, together with any document of transfer necessary to transfer title to such investment to the Trustee or its nominee. In the event amounts on deposit in a Collection Account are at any time invested in a Permitted Investment payable on demand, the party with investment discretion over such Investment Account shall: (x) consistent with any notice required to be given thereunder, demand that payment thereon be made on the last day such Permitted Investment may otherwise mature hereunder in an amount equal to the lesser of (1) all amounts then payable thereunder and (2) the amount required to be withdrawn on such date; and (y) demand payment of all amounts due thereunder promptly upon receipt by such party of written notice from the related Servicer that such Permitted Investment would not constitute a Permitted Investment in respect of funds thereafter on deposit in the Investment Account. (b) All income and gain realized from the investment of funds deposited in a Collection Account a Servicer, shall be for the benefit of such Servicer and shall be subject to its withdrawal in accordance with Section 3.09. Each Servicer shall deposit in the Collection Account maintained by it the amount of any loss incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment made with funds in such account immediately upon realization of such loss. All earnings and gain realized from the investment of funds deposited in the Distribution Account shall be for the benefit of the Master Servicer. The Master Servicer shall remit from its own funds for deposit into the Distribution Account the amount of any loss incurred on Permitted Investments in the Distribution Account. (c) Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, if any default occurs in the making of a payment due under any Permitted Investment, or if a default occurs in any other performance required under any Permitted Investment, the Trustee may and, subject to Section 9.01 and Section 9.02(a)(v), shall, at the written direction of the related Servicer, take such action as may be appropriate to enforce such payment or performance, including the institution and prosecution of appropriate proceedings. (d) The Trustee, the Master Servicer or their respective Affiliates are permitted to receive additional compensation that could be deemed to be in the Trustee's or the Master Servicer's economic self-interest for (i) serving as investment adviser, administrator, shareholder servicing agent, custodian or sub-custodian with respect to certain of the Permitted Investments, (ii) using Affiliates to effect transactions in certain Permitted Investments and (iii) effecting transactions in certain Permitted Investments. Such compensation shall not be considered an amount that is reimbursable or payable to the Trustee or the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 3.09 or 3.10 or otherwise payable in respect of Extraordinary Trust Fund Expenses. Such additional compensation shall not be an expense of the Trust Fund. SECTION 3.11. Maintenance of Hazard Insurance, Errors and Omissions and Fidelity Coverage and Primary Mortgage Insurance. (a) The terms of each Mortgage Note require the related Mortgagor to maintain fire, flood and hazard insurance policies. To the extent such policies are not maintained, the related Servicer shall cause to be maintained for each Mortgaged Property fire and hazard insurance with extended coverage as is customary in the area where the Mortgaged Property is located in an amount which is at least equal to the lesser of the current principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan and the amount necessary to compensate fully for any damage or loss to the improvements which are a part of such property on a replacement cost basis, in each case in an amount not less than such amount as is necessary to avoid the application of any coinsurance clause contained in the related hazard insurance policy. Each Servicer shall also cause to be maintained fire and hazard insurance on each REO Property with extended coverage as is customary in the area where the Mortgaged Property is located in an amount which is at least equal to the lesser of (i) the maximum insurable value of the improvements which are a part of such property and (ii) the outstanding principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan at the time it became an REO Property. Each Servicer will comply in the performance of this Agreement with all reasonable rules and requirements of each insurer under any such hazard policies. Any amounts to be collected by a Servicer under any such policies (other than amounts to be applied to the restoration or repair of the property subject to the related Mortgage or amounts to be released to the Mortgagor in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices, subject to the terms and conditions of the related Mortgage and Mortgage Note) shall be deposited in the related Collection Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 3.09, if received in respect of a Mortgage Loan, or in the REO Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 3.21, if received in respect of an REO Property. Any cost incurred by a Servicer in maintaining any such insurance shall not, for the purpose of calculating distributions to Certificateholders, be added to the unpaid principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan, notwithstanding that the terms of such Mortgage Loan so permit. It is understood and agreed that no earthquake or other additional insurance is to be required of any Mortgagor other than pursuant to such applicable laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force and as shall require such additional insurance. If the Mortgaged Property or REO Property is at any time in an area identified in the Federal Register by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as having special flood hazards, the related Servicer will cause to be maintained a flood insurance policy in respect thereof. Such flood insurance shall be in an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the unpaid principal balance of the related Mortgage Loan and (ii) the maximum amount of such insurance available for the related Mortgaged Property under the national flood insurance program (assuming that the area in which such Mortgaged Property is located is participating in such program). In the event that the related Servicer shall obtain and maintain a blanket policy with an insurer having a General Policy Rating of B:VI or better in Best's Key Rating Guide or otherwise acceptable to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac insuring against hazard losses on all of the related Mortgage Loans, it shall conclusively be deemed to have satisfied its obligations to cause fire and hazard insurance to be maintained on the Mortgaged Properties, it being understood and agreed that such policy may contain a deductible clause, in which case the related Servicer shall, in the event that there shall not have been maintained on the related Mortgaged Property or REO Property a policy complying with the first two sentences of this Section 3.11, and there shall have been one or more losses which would have been covered by such policy, deposit to the related Collection Account from its own funds the amount not otherwise payable under the blanket policy because of such deductible clause. In connection with its activities as administrator and servicer of the related Mortgage Loans, the related Servicer agrees to prepare and present, on behalf of itself, the Trustee, the Trust Fund, the Certificateholders, claims under any such blanket policy in a timely fashion in accordance with the terms of such policy. (b) Each Servicer shall keep in force during the term of this Agreement a policy or policies of insurance covering errors and omissions for failure in the performance of its respective obligations under this Agreement, which policy or policies shall be in such form and amount that would meet the requirements of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac if it were the purchaser of the related Mortgage Loans, unless the related Servicer, has obtained a waiver of such requirements from Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Each Servicer shall also maintain a fidelity bond in the form and amount that would meet the requirements of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, unless the related Servicer, has obtained a waiver of such requirements from Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Each Servicer shall be deemed to have complied with this provision if an Affiliate of such Servicer, has such errors and omissions and fidelity bond coverage and, by the terms of such insurance policy or fidelity bond, the coverage afforded thereunder extends to such Servicer. Any such errors and omissions policy and fidelity bond shall by its terms not be cancelable without thirty days' prior written notice to the Trustee. (c) No Servicer shall take any action that would result in noncoverage under any applicable primary mortgage insurance policy of any loss which, but for the actions of such Servicer would have been covered thereunder. Each Servicer shall use its best efforts to keep in force and effect any applicable primary mortgage insurance policy and, to the extent that the related Mortgage Loan requires the Mortgagor to maintain such insurance, any other primary mortgage insurance applicable to any Mortgage Loan. Except as required by applicable law or the related Mortgage Loan Documents, the related Servicer shall not cancel or refuse to renew any such primary mortgage insurance policy that is in effect at the date of the initial issuance of the related Mortgage Note and is required to be kept in force hereunder. Each Servicer agrees to present on behalf of the Trustee and the Certificateholders claims to the applicable insurer under any primary mortgage insurance policies and, in this regard, to take such reasonable action as shall be necessary to permit recovery under any primary mortgage insurance policies respecting defaulted Mortgage Loans. Pursuant to Section 3.08, any amounts collected by a Servicer under any primary mortgage insurance policies shall be deposited in the related Collection Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 3.09. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, no Servicer shall have any responsibility with respect to a primary mortgage insurance policy unless such Servicer has been made aware of such policy, as reflected on the Mortgage Loan Schedule or otherwise and have been provided with adequate information to administer such policy. SECTION 3.12. Enforcement of Due-on-Sale Clauses; Assumption Agreements Each Servicer shall, to the extent it has knowledge of any conveyance of any related Mortgaged Property by any related Mortgagor (whether by absolute conveyance or by contract of sale, and whether or not the Mortgagor remains or is to remain liable under the Mortgage Note and/or the Mortgage), exercise its rights to accelerate the maturity of such Mortgage Loan under the "due-on-sale" clause, if any, applicable thereto; provided, however, that no Servicer shall exercise any such rights if prohibited by law from doing so. If a Servicer reasonably believes that it is unable under applicable law to enforce such "due-on-sale" clause, or if any of the other conditions set forth in the proviso to the preceding sentence apply, such Servicer shall enter into an assumption and modification agreement from or with the person to whom such property has been conveyed or is proposed to be conveyed, pursuant to which such person becomes liable under the Mortgage Note and, to the extent permitted by applicable state law, the Mortgagor remains liable thereon. Each Servicer is also authorized to enter into a substitution of liability agreement with such person, pursuant to which the original Mortgagor is released from liability and such person is substituted as the Mortgagor and becomes liable under the Mortgage Note, provided that no such substitution shall be effective unless such person satisfies the then current underwriting criteria of the related Servicer for mortgage loans similar to the related Mortgage Loans. In connection with any assumption or substitution, the related Servicer shall apply such underwriting standards and follow such practices and procedures as shall be normal and usual in its general mortgage servicing activities and as it applies to other mortgage loans owned solely by it. No Servicer shall take or enter into any assumption and modification agreement, however, unless (to the extent practicable in the circumstances) it shall have received confirmation, in writing, of the continued effectiveness of any applicable hazard insurance policy. Any fee collected by a Servicer in respect of an assumption or substitution of liability agreement will be retained by such Servicer as additional servicing compensation. In connection with any such assumption, no material term of the Mortgage Note (including but not limited to the related Mortgage Rate and the amount of the Monthly Payment) may be amended or modified, except as otherwise required pursuant to the terms thereof. Each Servicer shall notify the Trustee (or the applicable Custodian) that any such substitution or assumption agreement has been completed by forwarding to the Trustee the executed original of such substitution or assumption agreement, which document shall be added to the related Mortgage File and shall, for all purposes, be considered a part of such Mortgage File to the same extent as all other documents and instruments constituting a part thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph or any other provision of this Agreement, no Servicer shall be deemed to be in default, breach or any other violation of its obligations hereunder by reason of any assumption of a Mortgage Loan by operation of law or by the terms of the Mortgage Note or any assumption which the related Servicer may be restricted by law from preventing, for any reason whatever. For purposes of this Section 3.12, the term "assumption" is deemed to also include a sale (of the Mortgaged Property) subject to the Mortgage that is not accompanied by an assumption or substitution of liability agreement. SECTION 3.13. Realization Upon Defaulted Mortgage Loans. (a) Each Servicer shall use its best efforts, consistent with Accepted Servicing Practices, to foreclose upon or otherwise comparably convert the ownership of properties securing such of the Mortgage Loans as come into and continue in default and as to which no satisfactory arrangements can be made for collection of delinquent payments pursuant to Section 3.06. Each Servicer shall be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by it in any such proceedings; provided, however, that such costs and expenses will be recoverable as Servicing Advances by the Servicers as contemplated in Sections 3.09 and 3.21. The foregoing is subject to the provision that, in any case in which a Mortgaged Property shall have suffered damage from an Uninsured Cause, the related Servicer shall not be required to expend its own funds toward the restoration of such property unless it shall determine in its discretion that such restoration will increase the proceeds of liquidation of the related Mortgage Loan after reimbursement to itself for such expenses. (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 3.13 or any other provision of this Agreement, with respect to any Mortgage Loan as to which the related Servicer has received actual notice of, or has actual knowledge of, the presence of any toxic or hazardous substance on the related Mortgaged Property, such Servicer shall not, on behalf of the Trust Fund, either (i) obtain title to such Mortgaged Property as a result of or in lieu of foreclosure or otherwise, or (ii) otherwise acquire possession of, or take any other action with respect to, such Mortgaged Property, if, as a result of any such action, the Trust Fund, the Trustee or the Certificateholders would be considered to hold title to, to be a "mortgagee-in-possession" of, or to be an "owner" or "operator" of such Mortgaged Property within the meaning of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, as amended from time to time, or any comparable law, unless such Servicer has also previously determined, based on its reasonable judgment and a prudent report prepared by an Independent Person who regularly conducts environmental audits using customary industry standards, that: (1) such Mortgaged Property is in compliance with applicable environmental laws or, if not, that it would be in the best economic interest of the Trust Fund to take such actions as are necessary to bring the Mortgaged Property into compliance therewith; and (2) there are no circumstances present at such Mortgaged Property relating to the use, management or disposal of any hazardous substances, hazardous materials, hazardous wastes or petroleum-based materials for which investigation, testing, monitoring, containment, clean-up or remediation could be required under any federal, state or local law or regulation, or that if any such materials are present for which such action could be required, that it would be in the best economic interest of the Trust Fund to take such actions with respect to the affected Mortgaged Property. The cost of the environmental audit report contemplated by this Section 3.13 shall be advanced by the related Servicer, subject to the related Servicer's right to be reimbursed therefor from the related Collection Account as provided in Section 3.09(a)(ix), such right of reimbursement being prior to the rights of Certificateholders to receive any amount in the related Collection Account received in respect of the affected Mortgage Loan or other Mortgage Loans. If the related Servicer determines, as described above, that it is in the best economic interest of the Trust Fund to take such actions as are necessary to bring any such Mortgaged Property into compliance with applicable environmental laws, or to take such action with respect to the containment, clean-up or remediation of hazardous substances, hazardous materials, hazardous wastes, or petroleum-based materials affecting any such Mortgaged Property, then the related Servicer shall take such action as it deems to be in the best economic interest of the Trust Fund. The cost of any such compliance, containment, cleanup or remediation shall be advanced by the related Servicer, subject to the related Servicer's right to be reimbursed therefor from the related Collection Account as provided in Sections 3.09(a)(iii) or 3.09(a)(ix), such right of reimbursement being prior to the rights of Certificateholders to receive any amount in the related Collection Account received in respect of the affected Mortgage Loan or other Mortgage Loans. (c) Each Servicer shall have the right to purchase from REMIC I any defaulted Mortgage Loan serviced by it that is 90 days or more delinquent, which such Servicer determines in good faith will otherwise become subject to foreclosure proceedings (evidence of such determination to be delivered in writing to the Trustee, in form and substance satisfactory to such Servicer and the Trustee prior to purchase), at a price equal to the Purchase Price. The Purchase Price for any Mortgage Loan purchased hereunder shall be deposited in the related Collection Account, and the Trustee, upon receipt of written certification from the related Servicer of such deposit, shall release or cause to be released to the related Servicer the related Mortgage File and the Trustee shall execute and deliver such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, representation or warranty, as the related Servicer shall furnish and as shall be necessary to vest in the related Servicer title to any Mortgage Loan released pursuant hereto. (d) Proceeds received in connection with any Final Recovery Determination, as well as any recovery resulting from a partial collection of Insurance Proceeds or Liquidation Proceeds, in respect of any Mortgage Loan, will be applied in the following order of priority: first, to reimburse the related Servicer for any related unreimbursed Servicing Advances and P&I Advances, pursuant to Section 3.09(a)(ii) or (a)(iii); second, to accrued and unpaid interest on the Mortgage Loan, to the date of the Final Recovery Determination, or to the Due Date prior to the Distribution Date on which such amounts are to be distributed if not in connection with a Final Recovery Determination; and third, as a recovery of principal of the Mortgage Loan. If the amount of the recovery so allocated to interest is less than the full amount of accrued and unpaid interest due on such Mortgage Loan, the amount of such recovery will be allocated by the related Servicer as follows: first, to unpaid Servicing Fees; and second, to the balance of the interest then due and owing. The portion of the recovery so allocated to unpaid Servicing Fees shall be reimbursed to the related Servicer pursuant to Section 3.09(a)(iii). The portion of the recovery allocated to interest (net of unpaid Servicing Fees) and the portion of the recovery allocated to principal of the Mortgage Loan shall be applied as follows: first, to reimburse the related Servicer for any related unreimbursed Servicing or P&I Advances in accordance with Section 3.09(a)(ii) and any other amounts reimbursable to the related Servicer pursuant to Section 3.09, and second, as part of the amounts to be transferred to the Distribution Account in accordance with Section 3.08(b). SECTION 3.14. Trustee to Cooperate; Release of Mortgage Files. (a) Upon becoming aware of the payment in full of any Mortgage Loan, or the receipt by the related Servicer of a notification that payment in full has been escrowed in a manner customary for such purposes for payment to Certificateholders on the next Distribution Date, the related Servicer will promptly furnish to the applicable Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, two copies of a request for release substantially in the form attached to the respective Custodial Agreement signed by a Servicing Officer or in a mutually agreeable electronic format which will, in lieu of a signature on its face, originate from a Servicing Officer (which certification shall include a statement to the effect that all amounts received in connection with such payment that are required to be deposited in the related Collection Account have been or will be so deposited) and shall request that the applicable Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, deliver to the related Servicer the related Mortgage File. Upon receipt of such certification and request, the applicable Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, shall within five (5) Business Days release the related Mortgage File to the related Servicer and the Trustee and the applicable Custodian shall have no further responsibility with regard to such Mortgage File. Upon any such payment in full, the related Servicer is authorized, to give, as agent for the Trustee, as the mortgagee under the Mortgage that secured the Mortgage Loan, an instrument of satisfaction (or assignment of mortgage without recourse) regarding the Mortgaged Property subject to the Mortgage, which instrument of satisfaction or assignment, as the case may be, shall be delivered to the Person or Persons entitled thereto against receipt therefor of such payment, it being understood and agreed that no expenses incurred in connection with such instrument of satisfaction or assignment, as the case may be, shall be chargeable to the related Collection Account. (b) From time to time and as appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of any Mortgage Loan, the Trustee shall execute such documents as shall be prepared and furnished to the Trustee by the related Servicer (in form reasonably acceptable to the Trustee) and as are necessary to the prosecution of any such proceedings. The applicable Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, shall, upon the request of the related Servicer, and delivery to the applicable Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, of two copies of a request for release signed by a Servicing Officer substantially in the form attached to the respective Custodial Agreement (or in a mutually agreeable electronic format which will, in lieu of a signature on its face, originate from a Servicing Officer), release within five (5) Business Days the related Mortgage File held in its possession or control to the related Servicer. Such trust receipt shall obligate the related Servicer to return the Mortgage File to the applicable Custodian on behalf of the Trustee, when the need therefor by the related Servicer no longer exists unless the Mortgage Loan shall be liquidated, in which case, upon receipt of a certificate of a Servicing Officer similar to that hereinabove specified, the Mortgage File shall be released by the applicable Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, to the related Servicer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in connection with a Principal Prepayment in full of any Mortgage Loan, the Master Servicer may request release of the related Mortgage File from the applicable Custodian, in accordance with the provisions of the respective Custodial Agreement, in the event the related Servicer fails to do so. Upon written certification of a Servicing Officer, the Trustee shall execute and deliver to the related Servicer, any court pleadings, requests for trustee's sale or other documents prepared and delivered to the Trustee and reasonably acceptable to it and necessary to the foreclosure or trustee's sale in respect of a Mortgaged Property or to any legal action brought to obtain judgment against any Mortgagor on the Mortgage Note or Mortgage or to obtain a deficiency judgment, or to enforce any other remedies or rights provided by the Mortgage Note or Mortgage or otherwise available at law or in equity. Each such certification shall include a request that such pleadings or documents be executed by the Trustee and a statement as to the reason such documents or pleadings are required and that the execution and delivery thereof by the Trustee will not invalidate or otherwise affect the lien of the Mortgage, except for the termination of such a lien upon completion of the foreclosure or trustee's sale. So long as no Servicer Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the related Servicer shall have the right to execute any and all such court pleadings, requests and other documents as attorney-in-fact for, and on behalf of the Trustee. SECTION 3.15. Servicing Compensation. Except as otherwise provided in the Assignment Agreements with respect to the Servicer's and each Interim Subservicer's servicing compensation for the month in which servicing is transferred from such Interim Subservicer to the Servicer, as compensation for its activities hereunder, the Servicer shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee with respect to each Mortgage Loan serviced by it payable solely from payments of interest in respect of such Mortgage Loan, subject to Section 3.22. In addition, each Servicer shall be entitled to recover unpaid Servicing Fees out of Insurance Proceeds or Liquidation Proceeds to the extent permitted by Section 3.09(a)(iii) and out of amounts derived from the operation and sale of an REO Property to the extent permitted by Section 3.21. The right to receive the Servicing Fee may not be transferred in whole or in part except in connection with the transfer of all of a Servicer's responsibilities and obligations under this Agreement to the extent permitted herein. Additional servicing compensation in the form of assumption fees, late payment charges, insufficient funds charges and other miscellaneous fees (other than Prepayment Charges) and ancillary income shall be retained by the related Servicer only to the extent such fees or charges are received by the related Servicer. Each Servicer shall also be entitled pursuant to Section 3.09(a)(iv) to withdraw from the related Collection Account and pursuant to Section 3.21(b) to withdraw from any REO Account, as additional servicing compensation, interest or other income earned on deposits therein, subject to Section 3.10. In addition, the related Servicer shall be entitled to retain or withdraw from the related Collection Account, pursuant to Section 3.09(a)(x), any Prepayment Interest Excess with respect to the Mortgage Loans serviced by it as additional servicing compensation. Each Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its servicing activities hereunder and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor except as specifically provided herein. SECTION 3.16. Collection Account Statements. Upon request, not later than fifteen (15) days after each Distribution Date, each Servicer shall forward to the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee and the Depositor a statement prepared by the institution at which the related Collection Account is maintained setting forth the status of the related Collection Account as of the close of business on such Distribution Date and showing, for the period covered by such statement, the aggregate amount of deposits into and withdrawals from the related Collection Account of each category of deposit specified in Section 3.08(a) and each category of withdrawal specified in Section 3.09. Copies of such statement and any similar statements provided by each Servicer shall be provided by the Securities Administrator to any Certificateholder and to any Person identified to the Securities Administrator as a prospective transferee of a Certificate, upon request at the expense of the requesting party, provided such statement is delivered by each Servicer to the Securities Administrator. SECTION 3.17. Statement as to Compliance. Not later than March 15th of each calendar year commencing in 2006 (or, with respect to Saxon, if the Master Servicer notifies Saxon prior to February 1st in any calendar year thereafter that it has filed a Form 15 Suspension Notice, not later than March 24th of such year), each Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee, the Master Servicer and the Depositor an Officers' Certificate in a form acceptable for filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an exhibit to Form 8-K or other required form (upon which the Master Servicer can conclusively rely in connection with its obligations under Section 5.06) stating, as to each signatory thereof, that (i) a review of the activities of such Servicer during the preceding year and of performance under this Agreement has been made under such officers' supervision and (ii) to the best of such officer's knowledge, based on such review, such Servicer has fulfilled all of its obligations under this Agreement throughout such year, or, if there has been a default in the fulfillment of any such obligation, specifying each such default known to such officer and the nature and status thereof. Copies of any such statement shall be provided by the Trustee to any Certificateholder, upon request at the expense of the requesting party, provided such statement is delivered by the Servicers to the Trustee. SECTION 3.18. Independent Public Accountants' Servicing Report. Not later than March 15th of each calendar year commencing in 2006 (or, with respect to Saxon, if the Master Servicer notifies Saxon prior to February 1st in any calendar year thereafter that a Form 15 Suspension Notice has been filed, not later than March 24th of such year), each Servicer, at its expense, shall cause a nationally recognized firm of independent certified public accountants to furnish to such Servicer a report in a form acceptable for filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an exhibit to Form 10-K or other required form stating that (i) it has obtained a letter of representation regarding certain matters from the management of such Servicer which includes an assertion that such Servicer has complied with certain minimum residential mortgage loan servicing standards, identified in the Uniform Single Attestation Program for Mortgage Bankers established by the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, with respect to the servicing of residential mortgage loans during the most recently completed fiscal year and (ii) on the basis of an examination conducted by such firm in accordance with standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, such representation is fairly stated and such firm has determined that the related Servicer has complied in all material respects, subject to such exceptions and other qualifications that may be appropriate. Immediately upon receipt of such report, each Servicer shall furnish a copy of such report to the Master Servicer, the Trustee and each Rating Agency. Copies of such statement shall be provided by the Trustee to any Certificateholder upon request at the expense of the requesting party, provided that such statement is delivered by the Servicers to the Trustee. SECTION 3.19. Annual Certification. (a) Each Servicer shall deliver to the Master Servicer, (i) on or before March 15th of each calendar year beginning in 2006 (or, if any such day is not a Business Day, the immediately preceding Business Day) or such alternative date reasonably specified by the Master Servicer which shall occur not later than fifteen (15) days prior to the date any Form 10-K is required to be filed with the Commission in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, a certification in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C, or (ii) with respect to Saxon, on or before March 24th of each calendar year in which the Master Servicer notifies Saxon on or before February 1st that a Form 15 Suspension Notice has been filed. Such certification shall be signed by the senior officer in charge of servicing of the related Servicer. (b) Each Servicer shall indemnify and hold harmless the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee, the Depositor and their respective officers, directors, agents and affiliates from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon a breach by such Servicer or any of its officers, directors, agents or affiliates of its obligations under this Section 3.19 or such Servicer's negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in connection therewith. Such indemnity shall survive the termination or resignation of the parties hereto or the termination of this Agreement. If the indemnification provided for herein is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee and the Depositor, then such Servicer agrees that it shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee and the Depositor as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities of the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee and the Depositor in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee and the Depositor on the one hand and such Servicer on the other in connection with a breach of such Servicer's obligations under this Section 3.19. SECTION 3.20. Access to Certain Documentation. Each Servicer shall provide to the Office of Thrift Supervision, the FDIC, and any other federal or state banking or insurance regulatory authority that may exercise authority over any Certificate Owner, access to the documentation regarding the related Mortgage Loans required by applicable laws and regulations. Such access shall be afforded without charge, but only upon reasonable request and during normal business hours at the offices of the related Servicer designated by it. Nothing in this Section 3.20 shall limit the obligation of the related Servicer to comply with any applicable law prohibiting disclosure of information regarding the Mortgagors and the failure of the related Servicer to provide access as provided in this Section as a result of such obligation shall not constitute a breach of this Section. Nothing in this Section 3.20 shall require the related Servicer to collect, create, collate or otherwise generate any information that it does not generate in its usual course of business. No Servicer shall be required to make copies of or ship documents to any Person unless provisions have been made for the reimbursement of the costs thereof. SECTION 3.21. Title, Management and Disposition of REO Property. (a) The deed or certificate of sale of any REO Property related to a Mortgage Loan shall be taken in the name of the Trustee, or its nominee, on behalf of the Trust Fund and for the benefit of the Certificateholders. The related Servicer, on behalf of REMIC I, shall either sell any REO Property by the close of the third calendar year following the calendar year in which REMIC I acquires ownership of such REO Property for purposes of Section 860(a)(8) of the Code or request from the Internal Revenue Service, no later than sixty (60) days before the day on which the three-year grace period would otherwise expire an extension of the three-year grace period, unless the related Servicer had delivered to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel, addressed to the Trustee and the Depositor, to the effect that the holding by REMIC I of such REO Property subsequent to three (3) years after its acquisition will not result in the imposition on any Trust REMIC created hereunder of taxes on "prohibited transactions" thereof, as defined in Section 860F of the Code, or cause any Trust REMIC hereunder to fail to qualify as a REMIC under Federal law at any time that any Certificates are outstanding. The related Servicer shall manage, conserve, protect and operate each REO Property for the Certificateholders solely for the purpose of its prompt disposition and sale in a manner which does not cause such REO Property to fail to qualify as "foreclosure property" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code or result in the receipt by any Trust REMIC created hereunder of any "income from non-permitted assets" within the meaning of Section 860F(a)(2)(B) of the Code, or any "net income from foreclosure property" which is subject to taxation under the REMIC Provisions. (b) Each Servicer shall segregate and hold all funds collected and received in connection with the operation of any REO Property separate and apart from its own funds and general assets and shall establish and maintain with respect to REO Properties an account held in trust for the Trustee, on behalf of the Trust Fund and for the benefit of the Certificateholders (the "REO Account"), which shall be an Eligible Account. Each Servicer shall be permitted to allow the related Collection Account to serve as the REO Account, subject to the maintenance of separate ledgers for each REO Property. Each Servicer shall be entitled to retain or withdraw any interest income paid on funds deposited in the related REO Account. (c) Each Servicer shall have full power and authority, subject only to the specific requirements and prohibitions of this Agreement, to do any and all things in connection with any REO Property related to a Mortgage Loan serviced by it as are consistent with the manner in which such Servicer manages and operates similar property owned by it or any of its Affiliates, all on such terms and for such period as such Servicer deems to be in the best interests of Certificateholders. In connection therewith, each Servicer shall deposit, or cause to be deposited in the clearing account in which it customarily deposits payments and collections on mortgage loans in connection with its mortgage loan servicing activities on a daily basis, and in no event more than one (1) Business Day after such Servicer's receipt thereof, and shall thereafter deposit in the REO Account, in no event more than two (2) Business Days after the deposit of good funds into the clearing account, all revenues received by it with respect to an REO Property related to a Mortgage Loan serviced by it and shall withdraw therefrom funds necessary for the proper operation, management and maintenance of such REO Property including, without limitation: (i) all insurance premiums due and payable in respect of such REO Property; (ii) all real estate taxes and assessments in respect of such REO Property that may result in the imposition of a lien thereon; and (iii) all costs and expenses necessary to maintain such REO Property. To the extent that amounts on deposit in the REO Account with respect to an REO Property are insufficient for the purposes set forth in clauses (i) through (iii) above with respect to such REO Property, the related Servicer shall advance from its own funds such amount as is necessary for such purposes if, but only if, the related Servicer would make such advances if the related Servicer owned the REO Property and if in the related Servicer's judgment, the payment of such amounts will be recoverable from the rental or sale of the REO Property. Subject to compliance with applicable laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force, and notwithstanding the foregoing, the related Servicer, on behalf of the Trust Fund, shall not: (iv) enter into, renew or extend any New Lease with respect to any REO Property, if the New Lease by its terms will give rise to any income that does not constitute Rents from Real Property; (v) permit any amount to be received or accrued under any New Lease other than amounts that will constitute Rents from Real Property; (vi) authorize or permit any construction on any REO Property, other than the completion of a building or other improvement thereon, and then only if more than ten percent of the construction of such building or other improvement was completed before default on the related Mortgage Loan became imminent, all within the meaning of Section 856(e)(4)(B) of the Code; or (vii) allow any Person to Directly Operate any REO Property on any date more than ninety (90) days after its date of acquisition by the Trust Fund; unless, in any such case, the related Servicer has obtained an Opinion of Counsel, provided to the related Servicer and the Trustee, to the effect that such action will not cause such REO Property to fail to qualify as "foreclosure property" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code at any time that it is held by REMIC I, in which case the related Servicer may take such actions as are specified in such Opinion of Counsel. The related Servicer may contract with any Independent Contractor for the operation and management of any REO Property, provided that: (viii) the terms and conditions of any such contract shall not be inconsistent herewith; (ix) any such contract shall require, or shall be administered to require, that the Independent Contractor pay all costs and expenses incurred in connection with the operation and management of such REO Property, including those listed above and remit all related revenues (net of such costs and expenses) to the related Servicer as soon as practicable, but in no event later than thirty (30) days following the receipt thereof by such Independent Contractor; (x) none of the provisions of this Section 3.21(c) relating to any such contract or to actions taken through any such Independent Contractor shall be deemed to relieve the related Servicer of any of its duties and obligations to the Trustee on behalf of the Trust Fund and for the benefit of the Certificateholders with respect to the operation and management of any such REO Property; and (xi) the related Servicer shall be obligated with respect thereto to the same extent as if it alone were performing all duties and obligations in connection with the operation and management of such REO Property. The related Servicer shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with any Independent Contractor performing services for it related to its duties and obligations hereunder for indemnification of the related Servicer by such Independent Contractor, and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification. The related Servicer shall be solely liable for all fees owed by it to any such Independent Contractor, irrespective of whether the related Servicer's compensation pursuant to Section 3.15 is sufficient to pay such fees. Any such agreement shall include a provision that such agreement may be immediately terminated by the Trustee (as successor Servicer) or any other successor Servicer (including the Master Servicer) without fee, in the event the related shall for any reason, no longer be the Servicer of the related Mortgage Loans (including termination due to a Servicer Event of Default). (d) In addition to the withdrawals permitted under Section 3.21(c), the related Servicer may from time to time make withdrawals from the REO Account for any REO Property: (i) to pay itself unpaid Servicing Fees in respect of the related Mortgage Loan; and (ii) to reimburse itself or any Sub-Servicer for unreimbursed Servicing Advances and Advances made in respect of such REO Property or the related Mortgage Loan. On the Servicer Remittance Date, the related Servicer shall withdraw from each REO Account maintained by it and deposit into the Distribution Account in accordance with Section 3.08(d)(ii), for distribution on the related Distribution Date in accordance with Section 5.01, the income from the related REO Property received during the prior calendar month, net of any withdrawals made pursuant to Section 3.21(c) or this Section 3.21(d). (e) Subject to the time constraints set forth in Section 3.21(a), each REO Disposition shall be carried out by the related Servicer at such price and upon such terms and conditions as the related Servicer shall deem necessary or advisable, as shall be normal and usual in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices. (f) The proceeds from the REO Disposition, net of any amount required by law to be remitted to the Mortgagor under the related Mortgage Loan and net of any payment or reimbursement to the related Servicer as provided above, shall be deposited in the Distribution Account in accordance with Section 3.08(d)(ii) on the Servicer Remittance Date in the month following the receipt thereof for distribution on the related Distribution Date in accordance with Section 5.01. Any REO Disposition shall be for cash only (unless changes in the REMIC Provisions made subsequent to the Startup Day allow a sale for other consideration). (g) The related Servicer shall file information returns (and shall provide a certification of a Servicing Officer to the Master Servicer that such filings have been made) with respect to the receipt of mortgage interest received in a trade or business, reports of foreclosures and abandonments of any Mortgaged Property and cancellation of indebtedness income with respect to any Mortgaged Property as required by Sections 6050H, 6050J and 6050P of the Code, respectively. Such reports shall be in form and substance sufficient to meet the reporting requirements imposed by such Sections 6050H, 6050J and 6050P of the Code. SECTION 3.22. Obligations of the Servicers in Respect of Prepayment Interest Shortfalls; Relief Act Interest Shortfalls. Each Servicer shall deliver to the Securities Administrator for deposit into the Distribution Account on or before 12:00 noon New York time on the Servicer Remittance Date from its own funds an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the aggregate amount of the Prepayment Interest Shortfalls attributable to prepayments in full on the related Mortgage Loans for the related Distribution Date resulting solely from voluntary Principal Prepayments received by the related Servicer during the related Prepayment Period and (ii) the aggregate amount of the related Servicing Fees payable to related Servicer on such Distribution Date with respect to the related Mortgage Loans. No Servicer shall have the right to reimbursement for any amounts remitted to the Securities Administrator in respect of this Section 3.22. No Servicer shall be obligated to pay the amounts set forth in this Section 3.22 with respect to shortfalls resulting from the application of the Relief Act. SECTION 3.23. Obligations of the Servicers in Respect of Mortgage Rates and Monthly Payments. In the event that a shortfall in any collection on or liability with respect to any Mortgage Loan results from or is attributable to adjustments to Mortgage Rates, Monthly Payments or Stated Principal Balances that were made by a Servicer in a manner not consistent with the terms of the related Mortgage Note and this Agreement, the related Servicer, upon discovery or receipt of notice thereof, immediately shall deliver to the Securities Administrator for deposit in the Distribution Account from its own funds the amount of any such shortfall and shall indemnify and hold harmless the Trust Fund, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the Master Servicer, the Depositor and any successor Servicer in respect of any such liability. Such indemnities shall survive the termination or discharge of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 3.23 shall not limit the ability of the Servicer to seek recovery of any such amounts from the related Mortgagor under the terms of the related Mortgage Note and Mortgage, to the extent permitted by applicable law. SECTION 3.24. Reserve Fund. (a) No later than the Closing Date, the Securities Administrator shall establish and maintain a separate, segregated trust account entitled, "Reserve Fund, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., in trust for the registered holders of ACE Securities Corp. Home Equity Loan Trust, Series 2005-HE4, Asset Backed Pass-Through Certificates." On the Closing Date, the Depositor will deposit, or cause to be deposited, into the Reserve Fund $1,000. In addition, the amount deposited in the Reserve Fund shall be increased by any payments received by the Securities Administrator under the Group I Cap Contract and deposited into the Reserve Fund for the benefit of the Class A-1 Certificates, Mezzanine Certificates and the Class B Certificates and under the Group II Cap Contract and deposited in the Reserve Fund for the benefit of the Class A-2 Certificates, the Mezzanine Certificates and the Class B Certificates. (b) On each Distribution Date, the Securities Administrator shall deposit into the Reserve Fund the amounts described in Section 5.01(a)(7)(vi), rather than distributing such amounts to the Class CE-1 Certificateholders, and Section 5.01(a)(7)(vii). On each such Distribution Date, the Securities Administrator shall hold all such amounts for the benefit of the Holders of the Class A Certificates, the Mezzanine Certificates and the Class B Certificates and will distribute such amounts to the Holders of the Class A Certificates, the Mezzanine Certificates and the Class B Certificates, in the amounts and priorities set forth in Section 5.01(a). If no Net WAC Rate Carryover Amounts are payable on a Distribution Date, the Securities Administrator shall deposit, into the Reserve Fund on behalf of the Class CE-1 Certificateholders, from amounts otherwise distributable to the Class CE-1 Certificateholders, an amount such that when added to other amounts already on deposit in the Reserve Fund, the aggregate amount on deposit therein is equal to $1,000. (c) For federal and state income tax purposes, the Class CE-1 Certificateholders will be deemed to be the owners of the Reserve Fund and all amounts deposited into the Reserve Fund (other than the initial deposit therein of $1,000) and any amounts paid to the Reserve Fund from the Cap Contracts shall be treated as amounts distributed by REMIC III to the Holders of the Class CE-1 Certificates. Upon the termination of the Trust Fund, or the payment in full of the Class A Certificates, the Mezzanine Certificates and the Class B Certificates, all amounts remaining on deposit in the Reserve Fund will be released by the Trust Fund and distributed to the Class CE-1 Certificateholders or their designees. The Reserve Fund will be part of the Trust Fund but not part of any REMIC and any payments to the Holders of the Class A Certificates, the Mezzanine Certificates or the Class B Certificates of Net WAC Rate Carryover Amounts will not be payments with respect to a "regular interest" in a REMIC within the meaning of Code Section 860(G)(a)(1). (d) By accepting a Class CE-1 Certificate, each Class CE-1 Certificateholder hereby agrees that the Securities Administrator will deposit into the Reserve Fund the amounts described above on each Distribution Date rather than distributing such amounts to the Class CE-1 Certificateholders. By accepting a Class CE-1 Certificate, each Class CE-1 Certificateholder further agrees that its agreement to such action by the Securities Administrator is given for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is acknowledged by such acceptance. (e) At the direction of the Holders of a majority in Percentage Interest in the Class CE-1 Certificates, the Securities Administrator shall direct any depository institution maintaining the Reserve Fund to invest the funds in such account in one or more Permitted Investments bearing interest or sold at a discount, and maturing, unless payable on demand, (i) no later than the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if a Person other than the Securities Administrator or an Affiliate manages or advises such investment, and (ii) no later than the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if the Securities Administrator or an Affiliate manages or advises such investment. All income and gain earned upon such investment shall be deposited into the Reserve Fund. In no event shall the Securities Administrator be liable for any investments made pursuant to this clause (e). If the Holders of a majority in Percentage Interest in the Class CE-1 Certificates fail to provide investment instructions, funds on deposit in the Reserve Fund shall be held uninvested by the Securities Administrator without liability for interest or compensation. (f) For federal tax return and information reporting, the right of the Class A Certificateholders, the Mezzanine Certificateholders and Class B Certificateholders to receive payments from the Reserve Fund in respect of any Net WAC Rate Carryover Amount shall be assigned a value of $86,000.00 with respect to Certificates covered by the Group I Cap Contract and $110,000.00 with respect to Certificates covered by the Group II Cap Contract. SECTION 3.25. Advance Facility. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, (i) each Servicer is hereby authorized to enter into an advance facility ("Advance Facility") but no more than two Advance Facilities without the prior written consent of the Trustee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, under which (A) the related Servicer sells, assigns or pledges to an advancing person (an "Advance Financing Person") its rights under this Agreement to be reimbursed for any P&I Advances or Servicing Advances and/or (B) an Advance Financing Person agrees to finance some or all P&I Advances or Servicing Advances required to be made by the related Servicer pursuant to this Agreement and (ii) each Servicer is hereby authorized to assign its rights to the Servicing Fee (which rights shall terminate upon the resignation, termination or removal of the related Servicer pursuant to the terms of this Agreement); it being understood that neither the Trust Fund nor any party hereto shall have a right or claim (including without limitation any right of offset) to any amounts for reimbursement of P&I Advances or Servicing Advances so assigned or to the portion of the Servicing Fee so assigned. Subject to the provisions of the first sentence of this Section 3.25(a), no consent of the Depositor, Trustee, Master Servicer, Certificateholders or any other party is required before a Servicer may enter into an Advance Facility, but such Servicer shall provide notice to the Depositor, Master Servicer and the Trustee of the existence of any such Advance Facility promptly upon the consummation thereof stating (a) the identity of the Advance Financing Person and (b) the identity of any Person ("Servicer's Assignee") who has the right to receive amounts in reimbursement of previously unreimbursed P&I Advances or Servicing Advances. Notwithstanding the existence of any Advance Facility under which an advancing person agrees to finance P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances on such Servicer's behalf, such Servicer shall remain obligated pursuant to this Agreement to make P&I Advances and Servicing Advances pursuant to and as required by this Agreement, and shall not be relieved of such obligations by virtue of such Advance Facility. (b) Reimbursement amounts ("Advance Reimbursement Amounts") shall consist solely of amounts in respect of P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances made with respect to the related Mortgage Loans for which the related Servicer would be permitted to reimburse itself in accordance with this Agreement, assuming the related Servicer had made the related P&I Advance(s) and/or Servicing Advance(s). (c) The related Servicer shall maintain and provide to any successor Servicer (with, upon request, a copy to the Trustee) a detailed accounting on a loan-by-loan basis as to amounts advanced by, pledged or assigned to, and reimbursed to any advancing person. The successor Servicer shall be entitled to rely on any such information provided by the predecessor Servicer, and the successor Servicer shall not be liable for any errors in such information. (d) Reimbursement amounts distributed with respect to each Mortgage Loan shall be allocated to outstanding unreimbursed P&I Advances or Servicing Advances (as the case may be) made with respect to that Mortgage Loan on a "first-in, first out" (FIFO) basis. The documentation establishing any Advance Facility shall require the related Servicer to provide to the related advancing person or its designee loan-by-loan information with respect to each such reimbursement amount distributed to such advancing person or Advance Facility trustee on each Distribution Date, to enable the advancing person or Advance Facility trustee to make the FIFO allocation of each such reimbursement amount with respect to each Mortgage Loan. The related Servicer shall remain entitled to be reimbursed by the advancing person or Advance Facility trustee for all P&I Advances and Servicing Advances funded by the related Servicer to the extent the related rights to be reimbursed therefor have not been sold, assigned or pledged to an advancing person. (e) Any amendment to this Section 3.25 or to any other provision of this Agreement that may be necessary or appropriate to effect the terms of an Advance Facility as described generally in this Section 3.25, including amendments to add provisions relating to a successor Servicer, may be entered into by the Trustee, the Depositor, and the related Servicer without the consent of any Certificateholder, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, provided, that the Trustee has been provided an Opinion of Counsel that such amendment is authorized hereunder and has no material adverse effect on the Certificateholders, which opinion shall be an expense of the party requesting such opinion but in any case shall not be an expense of the Trustee or the Trust Fund; provided, further, that the amendment shall not be deemed to adversely affect in any material respect the interests of the Certificateholders if the Person requesting the amendment obtains a letter from each Rating Agency (instead of obtaining an Opinion of Counsel to such effect) stating that the amendment would not result in the downgrading or withdrawal of the respective ratings then assigned to the Certificates; it being understood and agreed that any such rating letter in and of itself will not represent a determination as to the materiality of any such amendment and will represent a determination only as to the credit issues affecting any such rating. Prior to entering into an Advance Facility, the related Servicer shall notify the lender under such facility in writing that: (a) the P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances financed by and/or pledged to the lender are obligations owed to the related Servicer on a non-recourse basis payable only from the cash flows and proceeds received under this Agreement for reimbursement of P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances only to the extent provided herein, and neither the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee nor the Trust are otherwise obligated or liable to repay any P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances financed by the lender; (b) the related Servicer will be responsible for remitting to the lender the applicable amounts collected by it as Servicing Fees and as reimbursement for P&I Advances and/or Servicing Advances funded by the lender, as applicable, subject to the restrictions and priorities created in this Agreement; and (c) neither the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator nor the Trustee shall have any responsibility to calculate any amount payable under an Advance Facility or to track or monitor the administration of the financing arrangement between the related Servicer and the lender or the payment of any amount under an Advance Facility. (f) The related Servicer shall indemnify the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee and the Trust Fund for any cost, liability or expense relating to the Advance Facility including, without limitation, a claim, pending or threatened, by an Advance Financing Person. SECTION 3.26. The Servicers Indemnification. Each Servicer agrees to indemnify the Trustee, Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator, from, and hold the Trustee, Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator harmless against, any loss, liability or expense (including reasonable attorney's fees and expenses) incurred by any such Person by reason of such Servicer's willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties under this Agreement or by reason of such Servicer's reckless disregard of its obligations and duties under this Agreement. Such indemnity shall survive the termination or discharge of this Agreement and the resignation or removal of related Servicer, the Trustee, the Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator. Any payment hereunder made by the related Servicer to any such Person shall be from the related Servicer's own funds, without reimbursement from REMIC I therefor. SECTION 3.27. Pre-Funding Account. (a) No later than the Closing Date, the Securities Administrator shall establish and maintain a trust account which shall at all times be an Eligible Account and shall be titled "Pre-Funding Account, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., in trust for the registered holders of ACE Securities Corp. Home Equity Loan Trust, Series 2005-HE4, Asset-Backed Pass Through Certificates" (the "Pre-Funding Account"). The Pre-Funding Account shall consist of two sub-accounts, the "Group I Pre-Funding Sub-Account" and the "Group II Pre-Funding Sub-Account". The Securities Administrator shall, promptly upon receipt, deposit in the Group I Pre-Funding Sub-Account and the Group II Pre-Funding Sub-Account and retain therein the Original Group I Pre-Funded Amount and the Original Group II Pre-Funded Amount remitted on the Closing Date by the Depositor. Funds deposited in the Pre-Funding Account shall be held in trust for the Certificateholders for the uses and purposes set forth herein. (b) The Securities Administrator will invest funds deposited in the Pre-Funding Account as directed by the Depositor in Permitted Investments with a maturity date (i) no later than the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if a Person other than the Securities Administrator or an Affiliate manages or advises such investment, (ii) no later than the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn from such account pursuant to this Agreement, if the Securities Administrator or an Affiliate manages or advises such investment or (iii) within one (1) Business Day of the Securities Administrator's receipt thereof. For federal income tax purposes, the Depositor shall be the owner of the Pre-Funding Account and shall report all items of income, deduction, gain or loss arising therefrom. All income and gain realized from investment of funds deposited in the Pre-Funding Account shall be transferred to the Depositor. The Depositor shall deposit in the Pre-Funding Account the amount of any net loss incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment immediately upon realization of such loss without any right of reimbursement therefor. At no time will the Pre-Funding Account be an asset of any REMIC created hereunder. (c) Amounts on deposit in the Pre-Funding Account shall be withdrawn by the Securities Administrator as follows: (i) On any Subsequent Transfer Date, the Securities Administrator shall withdraw from the Group I Pre-Funding Sub-Account or the Group II Pre-Funding Sub-Account, as applicable, an amount equal to 100% of the Stated Principal Balances of the Subsequent Group I Mortgage Loans or the Subsequent Group II Mortgage Loans, as applicable, transferred and assigned to the Trustee for deposit in the mortgage pool on such Subsequent Transfer Date and pay such amount to or upon the order of the Depositor upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 2.09 with respect to such transfer and assignment; (ii) If the amount on deposit in the Pre-Funding Account (exclusive of any investment income therein) has not been reduced to zero during the Pre-Funding Period, on the day immediately following the termination of the Pre-Funding Period, the Securities Administrator shall deposit into the Distribution Account any amounts remaining in the Pre-Funding Account (exclusive of any investment income therein) for distribution in accordance with the terms hereof; (iii) To withdraw any amount not required to be deposited in the Pre-Funding Account or deposited therein in error; and (iv) To clear and terminate the Pre-Funding Account upon the earlier to occur of (A) the Distribution Date immediately following the end of the Pre-Funding Period and (B) the termination of this Agreement, with any amounts remaining on deposit therein being paid to the Holders of the Certificates then entitled to distributions in respect of principal. Withdrawals pursuant to clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) shall be treated as contributions of cash to REMIC I on the date of withdrawal.

The Master Servicer shall, from and after the Closing Date supervise, monitor and oversee the obligations of the Servicers under this Agreement and the Interim Servicer under the Interim Servicing Agreement to service and administer the related Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Interim Servicing Agreement and shall have full power and authority to do any and all things which it may deem necessary or desirable in connection with such master servicing and administration. In performing its obligations hereunder, the Master Servicer shall act in a manner consistent with Accepted Master Servicing Practices. Furthermore, the Master Servicer shall oversee and consult with the Servicers and the Interim Servicer as necessary from time-to-time to carry out the Master Servicer's obligations hereunder, shall receive, review and evaluate all reports, information and other data provided to the Master Servicer by the Servicers and the Interim Servicer and shall cause the Servicers and the Interim Servicer to perform and observe the covenants, obligations and conditions to be performed or observed by the Servicers under this Agreement or the Interim Servicer under the Interim Servicing Agreement. The Master Servicer shall independently and separately monitor the Servicers' and the Interim Servicer's servicing activities with respect to each related Mortgage Loan, reconcile the results of such monitoring with such information provided in the previous sentence on a monthly basis and coordinate corrective adjustments to the Servicers' or the Interim Servicer's and Master Servicer's records, and based on such reconciled and corrected information, prepare the statements specified in Section 5.03 and any other information and statements required to be provided by the Master Servicer hereunder. The Master Servicer shall reconcile the results of its Mortgage Loan monitoring with the actual remittances of the Servicers or the Interim Servicer to the Distribution Account pursuant to the terms hereof based on information provided to the Master Servicer by the Servicers and the Interim Servicer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Master Servicer shall have no obligation to supervise, monitor or oversee the performance of (i) the Interim Servicer under the Interim Servicing Agreement on or after the related Servicing Transfer Date, or (ii) the Interim Subservicer. The Trustee shall furnish the related Servicer, the Interim Servicer and the Master Servicer with any limited powers of attorney and other documents in form as provided to it necessary or appropriate to enable the related Servicer, the Interim Servicer and the Master Servicer to service and administer the related Mortgage Loans and REO Property. The Trustee shall have no responsibility for any action of the Master Servicer, the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer pursuant to any such limited power of attorney and shall be indemnified by the Master Servicer, the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer, as applicable, for any cost, liability or expense incurred by the Trustee in connection with such Person's misuse of any such power of attorney. The Trustee, the Custodians and the Securities Administrator shall provide access to the records and documentation in possession of the Trustee, the Custodians or the Securities Administrator regarding the related Mortgage Loans and REO Property and the servicing thereof to the Certificateholders, the FDIC, and the supervisory agents and examiners of the FDIC, such access being afforded only upon reasonable prior written request and during normal business hours at the office of the Trustee, the Custodians or the Securities Administrator; provided, however, that, unless otherwise required by law, none of the Trustee, the Custodians or the Securities Administrator shall be required to provide access to such records and documentation if the provision thereof would violate the legal right to privacy of any Mortgagor. The Trustee, the Custodians and the Securities Administrator shall allow representatives of the above entities to photocopy any of the records and documentation and shall provide equipment for that purpose at a charge that covers the Trustee's, the Custodians' or the Securities Administrator's actual costs. The Trustee shall execute and deliver to the related Servicer, the Interim Servicer or the Master Servicer upon request any court pleadings, requests for trustee's sale or other documents necessary or desirable to (i) the foreclosure or trustee's sale with respect to a Mortgaged Property; (ii) any legal action brought to obtain judgment against any Mortgagor on the Mortgage Note or any other Mortgage Loan Document; (iii) obtain a deficiency judgment against the Mortgagor; or (iv) enforce any other rights or remedies provided by the Mortgage Note or any other Mortgage Loan Document or otherwise available at law or equity. SECTION 4.02. REMIC-Related Covenants. For as long as each REMIC shall exist, the Trustee and the Securities Administrator shall act in accordance herewith to treat such REMIC as a REMIC, and the Trustee and the Securities Administrator shall comply with any directions of the Seller, the related Servicer, the Interim Servicer or the Master Servicer to assure such continuing treatment. In particular, the Trustee shall not (a) sell or permit the sale of all or any portion of the Mortgage Loans or of any investment of deposits in an Account unless such sale is as a result of a repurchase of the Mortgage Loans pursuant to this Agreement or the Trustee has received a REMIC Opinion prepared at the expense of the Trust Fund; and (b) other than with respect to a substitution pursuant to the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement or Section 2.03 of this Agreement, as applicable, accept any contribution to any REMIC after the Startup Day without receipt of an Opinion of Counsel stating that such contribution will not result in an Adverse REMIC Event as defined in Section 11.01(f).

(a) The Master Servicer shall be responsible for monitoring the compliance by the Servicers with their respective duties under this Agreement and the Interim Servicer with their respective duties under the Interim Servicing Agreement.

In the event that the Master Servicer, in its judgment, determines that the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer should be terminated in accordance with the terms hereof or the terms of the Interim Servicing Agreement or that a notice should be sent pursuant to the terms hereof or the terms of the Interim Servicing Agreement with respect to the occurrence of an event that, unless cured, would constitute a Servicer Event of Default, or an event of default under the Interim Servicing Agreement, the Master Servicer shall notify the related Servicer, the Interim Servicer, the Seller and the Trustee thereof and the Master Servicer shall issue such notice or take such other action as it deems appropriate. (b) The Master Servicer, for the benefit of the Trustee and the Certificateholders, shall enforce the obligations of the Servicers under this Agreement and the Interim Servicer under the Interim Servicing Agreement and shall, in the event that a Servicer fails to perform its obligations in accordance with this Agreement, subject to this Section and Article VIII, the Trustee shall terminate the rights and obligations of such Servicer hereunder in accordance with the provisions of Article VIII. In the event that the Interim Servicer fails to perform its obligations in accordance with the Interim Servicing Agreement, the Master Servicer shall terminate the rights and obligations of the Interim Servicer, as servicer, in accordance with the Interim Servicing Agreement. Such enforcement, including, without limitation, the legal prosecution of claims and the pursuit of other appropriate remedies, shall be in such form and carried out to such an extent and at such time as the Master Servicer, in its good faith business judgment, would require were it the owner of the related Mortgage Loans. The Master Servicer shall pay the costs of such enforcement at its own expense, provided that the Master Servicer shall not be required to prosecute or defend any legal action except to the extent that the Master Servicer shall have received reasonable indemnity for its costs and expenses in pursuing such action. (c) The Master Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed by the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer, as applicable (or from amounts on deposit in the Distribution Account if the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer is unable to fulfill its obligations hereunder or under the Interim Servicing Agreement) for all reasonable out-of-pocket or third party costs associated with the transfer of servicing from the predecessor Servicer (or if the predecessor Servicer is the Master Servicer, from the Servicer immediately preceding the Master Servicer) or the Interim Servicer, including without limitation, any reasonable out-of-pocket or third party costs or expenses associated with the complete transfer of all servicing data and the completion, correction or manipulation of such servicing data as may be required by the Master Servicer to correct any errors or insufficiencies in the servicing data or otherwise to enable the Master Servicer to service the related Mortgage Loans properly and effectively, upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs and expenses. (d) The Master Servicer shall require the Servicers and the Interim Servicer to comply with the remittance requirements and other obligations set forth in this Agreement and the Interim Servicing Agreement. (e) If the Master Servicer acts as successor to a Servicer or the Interim Servicer, it will not assume liability for the representations and warranties of the terminated Servicer or Interim Servicer. SECTION 4.04. Fidelity Bond. The Master Servicer, at its expense, shall maintain in effect a blanket fidelity bond and an errors and omissions insurance policy, affording coverage with respect to all directors, officers, employees and other Persons acting on such Master Servicer's behalf, and covering errors and omissions in the performance of the Master Servicer's obligations hereunder. The errors and omissions insurance policy and the fidelity bond shall be in such form and amount generally acceptable for entities serving as master servicers or trustees. SECTION 4.05. Power to Act; Procedures. The Master Servicer shall master service the Mortgage Loans and shall have full power and authority, subject to the REMIC Provisions and the provisions of Article XI, to do any and all things that it may deem necessary or desirable in connection with the master servicing and administration of the Mortgage Loans, including but not limited to the power and authority (i) to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Certificateholders and the Trustee, customary consents or waivers and other instruments and documents, (ii) to consent to transfers of any Mortgaged Property and assumptions of the Mortgage Notes and related Mortgages, (iii) to collect any Insurance Proceeds and Liquidation Proceeds, and (iv) to effectuate foreclosure or other conversion of the ownership of the Mortgaged Property securing any Mortgage Loan, in each case, in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement; provided, however, that the Master Servicer shall not (and, consistent with its responsibilities under Section 4.03, shall not permit the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to) knowingly or intentionally take any action, or fail to take (or fail to cause to be taken) any action reasonably within its control and the scope of duties more specifically set forth herein, that, under the REMIC Provisions, if taken or not taken, as the case may be, would cause REMIC I, REMIC II or REMIC III to fail to qualify as a REMIC or result in the imposition of a tax upon the Trust Fund (including but not limited to the tax on prohibited transactions as defined in Section 860F(a)(2) of the Code and the tax on contributions to a REMIC set forth in Section 860G(d) of the Code) unless the Master Servicer has received an Opinion of Counsel (but not at the expense of the Master Servicer) to the effect that the contemplated action will not cause REMIC I, REMIC II or REMIC III to fail to qualify as a REMIC or result in the imposition of a tax upon REMIC I, REMIC II or REMIC III, as the case may be. The Trustee shall furnish the Master Servicer, upon written request from a Servicing Officer, with any powers of attorney prepared and delivered to it and reasonably acceptable to it by empowering the Master Servicer, the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to execute and deliver instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge, and to foreclose upon or otherwise liquidate Mortgaged Property, and to appeal, prosecute or defend in any court action relating to the Mortgage Loans or the Mortgaged Property, in accordance with this Agreement or the Interim Servicing Agreement, and the Trustee shall execute and deliver such other documents prepared and delivered to it and reasonably acceptable to it, as the Master Servicer, the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer may request, to enable the Master Servicer to master service and administer the related Mortgage Loans and carry out its duties hereunder, in each case in accordance with Accepted Master Servicing Practices (and the Trustee shall have no liability for misuse of any such powers of attorney by the Master Servicer, the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer and shall be indemnified by the Master Servicer, the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer, as applicable, for any cost, liability or expense incurred by the Trustee in connection with such Person's use or misuse of any such power of attorney). If the Master Servicer or the Trustee has been advised that it is likely that the laws of the state in which action is to be taken prohibit such action if taken in the name of the Trustee or that the Trustee would be adversely affected under the "doing business" or tax laws of such state if such action is taken in its name, the Master Servicer shall join with the Trustee in the appointment of a co-trustee pursuant to Section 9.10. In the performance of its duties hereunder, the Master Servicer shall be an independent contractor and shall not, except in those instances where it is taking action in the name of the Trustee, be deemed to be the agent of the Trustee. SECTION 4.06. Due-on-Sale Clauses; Assumption Agreements. To the extent Mortgage Loans contain enforceable due-on-sale clauses, the Master Servicer shall cause the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer, as applicable, to enforce such clauses in accordance with this Agreement or the Interim Servicing Agreement. If applicable law prohibits the enforcement of a due-on-sale clause or such clause is otherwise not enforced in accordance with this Agreement or the Interim Servicing Agreement and, as a consequence, a Mortgage Loan is assumed, the original Mortgagor may be released from liability in accordance with this Agreement or the Interim Servicing Agreement. SECTION 4.07. Documents, Records and Funds in Possession of Master Servicer To Be Held for Trustee. (a) The Master Servicer shall transmit to the Trustee or the applicable Custodian such documents and instruments coming into the possession of the Master Servicer from time to time as are required by the terms hereof to be delivered to the Trustee or the applicable Custodian. Any funds received by the Master Servicer in respect of any Mortgage Loan or which otherwise are collected by the Master Servicer as Liquidation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds in respect of any Mortgage Loan shall be remitted to the Securities Administrator for deposit in the Distribution Account. The Master Servicer shall, and, subject to Section 3.20 of this Agreement or, to the extent provided therein, the Interim Servicing Agreement, shall cause the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to, provide access to information and documentation regarding the Mortgage Loans to the Trustee, its agents and accountants at any time upon reasonable request and during normal business hours, and to Certificateholders that are savings and loan associations, banks or insurance companies, the Office of Thrift Supervision, the FDIC and the supervisory agents and examiners of such Office and Corporation or examiners of any other federal or state banking or insurance regulatory authority if so required by applicable regulations of the Office of Thrift Supervision or other regulatory authority, such access to be afforded without charge but only upon reasonable request in writing and during normal business hours at the offices of the Master Servicer designated by it. In fulfilling such a request the Master Servicer shall not be responsible for determining the sufficiency of such information. (b) All Mortgage Files and funds collected or held by, or under the control of, the Master Servicer, in respect of any Mortgage Loans, whether from the collection of principal and interest payments or from Liquidation Proceeds or Insurance Proceeds, shall be remitted to the Trustee for deposit in the Distribution Account.

It is understood and agreed that such insurance shall be with insurers meeting the eligibility requirements set forth in Section 3.11 of the Agreement or the eligibility requirements set forth in the Interim Servicing Agreement and that no earthquake or other additional insurance is to be required of any Mortgagor or to be maintained on property acquired in respect of a defaulted loan, other than pursuant to such applicable laws and regulations as shall at any time be in force and as shall require such additional insurance. SECTION 4.09. Presentment of Claims and Collection of Proceeds. The Master Servicer shall enforce each Servicer's obligations under this Agreement and the Interim Servicer's obligations under the Interim Servicing Agreement to prepare and present on behalf of the Trustee and the Certificateholders all claims under the Insurance Policies and take such actions (including the negotiation, settlement, compromise or enforcement of the insured's claim) as shall be necessary to realize recovery under such policies. Any proceeds disbursed to the Master Servicer in respect of such policies, bonds or contracts shall be promptly remitted to the Trustee for deposit in the Distribution Account upon receipt, except that any amounts realized that are to be applied to the repair or restoration of the Mortgaged Property as a condition precedent to the presentation of claims on the related Mortgage Loan to the insurer under any applicable insurance policy need not be so or remitted. SECTION 4.10. Maintenance of Primary Mortgage Insurance Policies. (a) The Master Servicer shall not take, or permit the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to take (to the extent such action is prohibited by this Agreement or the Interim Servicing Agreement), any action that would result in noncoverage under any primary mortgage insurance policy of any loss which, but for the actions of the Master Servicer, the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer, as applicable, would have been covered thereunder. The Master Servicer shall use its best reasonable efforts to cause the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to keep in force and effect (to the extent that the Mortgage Loan requires the Mortgagor to maintain such insurance), primary mortgage insurance applicable to each Mortgage Loan in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement or the Interim Servicing Agreement. The Master Servicer shall not, and shall not permit the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to, cancel or refuse to renew any primary mortgage insurance policy that is in effect at the date of the initial issuance of the Mortgage Note and is required to be kept in force hereunder except in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement or the Interim Servicing Agreement. (b) The Master Servicer agrees to cause the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to present, on behalf of the Trustee and the Certificateholders, claims to the insurer under any primary mortgage insurance policies and, in this regard, to take such reasonable action as shall be necessary to permit recovery under any primary mortgage insurance policies respecting defaulted Mortgage Loans. SECTION 4.11. Trustee to Retain Possession of Certain Insurance Policies and Documents. The Trustee or the applicable Custodian, shall retain possession and custody of the originals (to the extent available) of any primary mortgage insurance policies, or certificate of insurance if applicable, and any certificates of renewal as to the foregoing as may be issued from time to time as contemplated by this Agreement. Until all amounts distributable in respect of the Certificates have been distributed in full and the Master Servicer and the related Servicer and the Interim Servicer have otherwise fulfilled their respective obligations under this Agreement and the Interim Servicing Agreement, the Trustee or the applicable Custodian shall also retain possession and custody of each Mortgage File in accordance with and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Custodial Agreement. The Master Servicer shall promptly deliver or cause to be delivered to the Trustee or the applicable Custodian, upon the execution or receipt thereof the originals of any primary mortgage insurance policies, any certificates of renewal, and such other documents or instruments that constitute Mortgage Loan Documents that come into the possession of the Master Servicer from time to time.

The Master Servicer shall cause the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to foreclose upon, repossess or otherwise comparably convert the ownership of Mortgaged Properties securing such of the Mortgage Loans as come into and continue in default and as to which no satisfactory arrangements can be made for collection of delinquent payments, all in accordance with this Agreement or the Interim Servicing Agreement. SECTION 4.13. Compensation for the Master Servicer.

Further, the Master Servicer shall cause the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to sell any REO Property prior to three years after the end of the calendar year of its acquisition by REMIC I unless (i) the Trustee shall have been supplied by the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer with an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that the holding by the Trust Fund of such REO Property subsequent to such three-year period will not result in the imposition of taxes on "prohibited transactions" of any REMIC hereunder as defined in section 860F of the Code or cause any REMIC hereunder to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any Certificates are outstanding, in which case the Trust Fund may continue to hold such Mortgaged Property (subject to any conditions contained in such Opinion of Counsel) or (ii) the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer shall have applied for, prior to the expiration of such three-year period, an extension of such three-year period in the manner contemplated by Section 856(e)(3) of the Code, in which case the three-year period shall be extended by the applicable extension period. The Master Servicer shall cause the related Servicer or the Interim Servicer to protect and conserve, such REO Property in the manner and to the extent required by this Agreement or the Interim Servicing Agreement in accordance with the REMIC Provisions and in a manner that does not result in a tax on "net income from foreclosure property" or cause such REO Property to fail to qualify as "foreclosure property" within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code.

(b) Copies of such statements shall be provided to any Certificateholder upon request, by the Master Servicer or by the Trustee at the Master Servicer's expense if the Master Servicer failed to provide such copies (unless (i) the Master Servicer shall have failed to provide the Trustee with such statement or (ii) the Trustee shall be unaware of the Master Servicer's failure to provide such statement). SECTION 4.16. Annual Independent Accountant's Servicing Report. If the Master Servicer has, during the course of any calendar year, directly serviced any of the Mortgage Loans, then the Master Servicer at its expense shall cause a nationally recognized firm of independent certified public accountants to furnish a statement to the Trustee, the Rating Agencies and the Seller on or before March 15 of each year, commencing on March 15, 2006 to the effect that, with respect to the most recently ended fiscal year, such firm has examined certain records and documents relating to the Master Servicer's performance of its servicing obligations under this Agreement and pooling and servicing and trust agreements in material respects similar to this Agreement and to each other and that, on the basis of such examination conducted substantially in compliance with the audit program for mortgages serviced for Freddie Mac or the Uniform Single Attestation Program for Mortgage Bankers, such firm is of the opinion that the Master Servicer's activities have been conducted in compliance with this Agreement, or that such examination has disclosed no material items of noncompliance except for (i) such exceptions as such firm believes to be immaterial, (ii) such other exceptions as are set forth in such statement and (iii) such exceptions that the Uniform Single Attestation Program for Mortgage Bankers or the Audit Program for Mortgages Serviced by Freddie Mac requires it to report.

(e) Subject to and in accordance with the provisions of Article VIII, in the event a Servicer fails to make any required P&I Advance, then the Master Servicer (in its capacity as successor servicer) or any other successor Servicer shall be required to make such P&I Advance on the Distribution Date on which such Servicer was required to make such Advance, subject to its determination of recoverability. In addition, in the event that the Interim Servicer fails to make a required P&I Advance under the Interim Servicing Agreement, the Master Servicer (in its capacity as successor servicer) or any other successor servicer will be required to make such P&I Advance, subject to its determination of recoverability. SECTION 5.04. Allocation of Realized Losses. (a) Prior to the Determination Date, each Servicer and the Interim Servicer shall determine as to each Mortgage Loan serviced by such Servicer or the Interim Servicer and any related REO Property and include in the monthly remittance report provided to the Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator (substantially in the form of Schedule 4 hereto) such information as is reasonably available to the Servicers and the Interim Servicer as the Master Servicer or the Securities Administrator may reasonably require so as to enable the Master Servicer to master service the Mortgage Loans and oversee the servicing by the Servicers and the Interim Servicer and the Securities Administrator to fulfill its obligations hereunder with respect to securities and tax reporting, which shall include, but not be limited to: (i) the total amount of Realized Losses, if any, incurred in connection with any Final Recovery Determinations made during the related Prepayment Period; and (ii) the respective portions of such Realized Losses allocable to interest and allocable to principal. Prior to each Determination Date, each Servicer and the Interim Servicer shall also determine as to each Mortgage Loan: (i) the total amount of Realized Losses, if any, incurred in connection with any Deficient Valuations made during the related Prepayment Period; and (ii) the total amount of Realized Losses, if any, incurred in connection with Debt Service Reductions in respect of Monthly Payments due during the related Due Period. (b) All Realized Losses on the Mortgage Loans allocated to any REMIC II Regular Interest pursuant to Section 5.04(d) on the Mortgage Loans shall be allocated by the Securities Administrator on each Distribution Date as follows: FIRST, to Net Monthly Excess Cashflow; SECOND, to the Class CE-1 Certificates; THIRD, to the Class B-3 Certificates until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class B-3 Certificates has been reduced to zero; FOURTH, to the Class B-2 Certificates until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class B-2 Certificates has been reduced to zero; FIFTH, to the Class B-1 Certificates until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class B-1 Certificates has been reduced to zero; SIXTH, to the Class M-10 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-10 Certificates has been reduced to zero; SEVENTH, to the Class M-9 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-9 Certificates has been reduced to zero; EIGHTH, to the Class M-8 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-8 Certificates has been reduced to zero; NINTH, to the Class M-7 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-7 Certificates has been reduced to zero; TENTH, to the Class M-6 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-6 Certificates has been reduced to zero; ELEVENTH, to the Class M-5 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-5 Certificates has been reduced to zero; TWELFTH, to the Class M-4 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-4 Certificates has been reduced to zero; THIRTEENTH, to the Class M-3 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-3 Certificates has been reduced to zero; FOURTEENTH, to the Class M-2 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-2 Certificates has been reduced to zero; and FIFTEENTH, to the Class M-1 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class M-1 Certificates has been reduced to zero. All Realized Losses to be allocated to the Certificate Principal Balances of all Classes on any Distribution Date shall be so allocated after the actual distributions to be made on such date as provided above. All references above to the Certificate Principal Balance of any Class of Certificates shall be to the Certificate Principal Balance of such Class immediately prior to the relevant Distribution Date, before reduction thereof by any Realized Losses, in each case to be allocated to such Class of Certificates, on such Distribution Date. Any allocation of Realized Losses to a Mezzanine Certificate or Class B Certificate on any Distribution Date shall be made by reducing the Certificate Principal Balance thereof by the amount so allocated; any allocation of Realized Losses to a Class CE-1 Certificates shall be made by reducing the amount otherwise payable in respect thereof pursuant to Section 5.01(a)(7)(viii). No allocations of any Realized Losses shall be made to the Certificate Principal Balances of the Class A Certificates or Class P Certificates. As used herein, an allocation of a Realized Loss on a "PRO RATA basis" among two or more specified Classes of Certificates means an allocation on a PRO RATA basis, among the various Classes so specified, to each such Class of Certificates on the basis of their then outstanding Certificate Principal Balances prior to giving effect to distributions to be made on such Distribution Date. All Realized Losses and all other losses allocated to a Class of Certificates hereunder will be allocated among the, Certificates of such Class in proportion to the Percentage Interests evidenced thereby. In addition, in the event that a Servicer receives any Subsequent Recoveries with respect to a Mortgage Loan serviced by it, the related Servicer shall deposit such funds into the related Collection Account pursuant to Section 3.08. If, after taking into account such Subsequent Recoveries and any Subsequent recoveries received by the Interim Servicer, the amount of a Realized Loss is reduced, the amount of such Subsequent Recoveries will be applied to increase the Certificate Principal Balance of the Class of Subordinate Certificates with the highest payment priority to which Realized Losses have been allocated, but not by more than the amount of Realized Losses previously allocated to that Class of Subordinate Certificates pursuant to this Section 5.04 and not previously reimbursed to such Class of Subordinate Certificates with Net Monthly Excess Cashflow pursuant to Section 5.01(a)(7). The amount of any remaining Subsequent Recoveries will be applied to sequentially increase the Certificate Principal Balance of the Subordinate Certificates, beginning with the Class of Subordinate Certificates with the next highest payment priority, up to the amount of such Realized Losses previously allocated to such Class of Subordinate Certificates pursuant to this Section 5.04 and not previously reimbursed to such Class of Subordinate Certificates with Net Monthly Excess Cashflow pursuant to Section 5.01(a)(7)(iii). Holders of such Certificates will not be entitled to any payment in respect of current interest on the amount of such increases for any Interest Accrual Period preceding the Distribution Date on which such increase occurs. Any such increases shall be applied to the Certificate Principal Balance of each Subordinate Certificate of such Class in accordance with its respective Percentage Interest. (c) All Realized Losses on the Mortgage Loans shall be allocated by the Trustee, based solely on the instructions of the Securities Administrator, on each Distribution Date to the following REMIC I Regular Interests, as follows: to REMIC I Regular Interest LT1 and REMIC I Regular Interest LT1PF until the Uncertificated Balance of each such REMIC I Regular Interest has been reduced to zero; provided however, with respect to the first three Distribution Dates, all Realized Losses on the Initial Group I Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC I Regular Interest LT1 until the Uncertificated Balance of each such REMIC I Regular Interest has been reduced to zero, and all Realized Losses on the Subsequent Group I Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC I Regular Interest LT1PF until the Uncertificated Balance thereof has been reduced to zero. All Realized Losses on the Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated by the Trustee on each Distribution Date to REMIC I Regular Interest LT2 and REMIC I Regular Interest LT2PF until the Uncertificated Balance of each such REMIC I Regular Interest has been reduced to zero; provided however, with respect to the first three Distribution Dates, all Realized Losses on the Initial Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC I Regular Interest LT2 until the Uncertificated Balance of such REMIC I Regular Interest has been reduced to zero, and all Realized Losses on the Subsequent Group II Mortgage Loans shall be allocated to REMIC I Regular Interest LT2PF until the Uncertificated Balance thereof has been reduced to zero. (d) (i) The REMIC II Marker Percentage of all Realized Losses on the Mortgage Loans shall be allocated by the Trustee, based solely on the instructions of the Securities Administrator, on each Distribution Date to the following REMIC II Regular Interests in the specified percentages, as follows: FIRST, to Uncertificated Interest payable to the REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ up to an aggregate amount equal to the REMIC II Interest Loss Allocation Amount, 98.00% and 2.00%, respectively; SECOND, to the Uncertificated Balances of the REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ up to an aggregate amount equal to the REMIC II Principal Loss Allocation Amount, 98.00% and 2.00%, respectively; THIRD, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTB3 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTB3 has been reduced to zero; FOURTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTB2 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTB2 has been reduced to zero; FIFTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTB1 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTB1 has been reduced to zero; SIXTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM10 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM10 has been reduced to zero; SEVENTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM9 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM9 has been reduced to zero; EIGHTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM8 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM8 has been reduced to zero; NINTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM7 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM7 has been reduced to zero; TENTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM6 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM6 has been reduced to zero; ELEVENTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM5 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM5 has been reduced to zero; TWELFTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM4 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM4 has been reduced to zero; THIRTEENTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM3 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM3 has been reduced to zero; FOURTEENTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM2 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM2 has been reduced to zero; and FIFTEENTH, to the Uncertificated Balances of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTAA, REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM1 and REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTZZ, 98.00%, 1.00% and 1.00%, respectively, until the Uncertificated Balance of REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTM1 has been reduced to zero. (ii) The REMIC II Sub WAC Allocation Percentage of all Realized Losses shall be applied after all distributions have been made on each Distribution Date first, so as to keep the Uncertificated Balance of each REMIC II Regular Interest ending with the designation "GRP" equal to 0.01% of the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans in the related Loan Group; second, to each REMIC II Regular Interest ending with the designation "SUB," so that the Uncertificated Balance of each such REMIC II Regular Interest is equal to 0.01% of the excess of (x) the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans in the related Loan Group over (y) the current Certificate Principal Balance of the Class A Certificate in the related Loan Group (except that if any such excess is a larger number than in the preceding distribution period, the least amount of Realized Losses shall be applied to such REMIC II Regular Interests such that the REMIC II Subordinated Balance Ratio is maintained); and third, any remaining Realized Losses shall be allocated to REMIC II Regular Interest II-LTXX. SECTION 5.05. Compliance with Withholding Requirements. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Trustee and the Securities Administrator shall comply with all federal withholding requirements respecting payments to Certificateholders of interest or original issue discount that the Trustee reasonably believes are applicable under the Code. The consent of Certificateholders shall not be required for such withholding. In the event the Securities Administrator does withhold any amount from interest or original issue discount payments or advances thereof to any Certificateholder pursuant to federal withholding requirements, the Securities Administrator shall indicate the amount withheld to such Certificateholders. SECTION 5.06. Reports Filed with Securities and Exchange Commission. The Depositor shall prepare or cause to be prepared the initial current report on Form 8-K. Within fifteen (15) days after each Distribution Date, the Securities Administrator shall, in accordance with industry standards, file with the Commission via the Electronic Data Gathering and Retrieval System ("EDGAR"), a Form 8-K (or other comparable Form containing the same or comparable information or other information mutually agreed upon) with a copy of the statement to be furnished to the Certificateholders for such Distribution Date as an exhibit thereto. Prior to January 30, 2006, the Securities Administrator shall, in accordance with industry standards, file a Form 15 Suspension Notice with respect to the Trust Fund, if applicable. Prior to (i) March 20, 2006 and (ii) unless and until a Form 15 Suspension Notice shall have been filed, prior to March 20th of each year thereafter, the Master Servicer shall provide the Securities Administrator with a Master Servicer Certification, together with a copy of the annual independent accountant's servicing report and annual statement of compliance of the Servicer to be delivered pursuant to this Agreement and, if applicable, the annual independent accountant's servicing report and annual statement of compliance to be delivered by the Master Servicer pursuant to Sections 4.15 and 4.16.

ARTICLE VI THE CERTIFICATES SECTION 6.01. The Certificates. (a) The Certificates in the aggregate will represent the entire beneficial ownership interest in the Mortgage Loans and all other assets included in REMIC I and REMIC II. The Certificates will be substantially in the forms annexed hereto as Exhibits A-1 through A-6. The Certificates of each Class will be issuable in registered form only, in denominations of authorized Percentage Interests as described in the definition thereof. Each Certificate will share ratably in all rights of the related Class. Upon original issue, the Certificates shall be executed and authenticated by the Securities Administrator and delivered by the Trustee to and upon the written order of the Depositor. The Certificates shall be executed by manual or facsimile signature on behalf of the Trust by the Securities Administrator by an authorized signatory. Certificates bearing the manual or facsimile signatures of individuals who were at any time the proper officers of the Securities Administrator shall bind the Trust, notwithstanding that such individuals or any of them have ceased to hold such offices prior to the authentication and delivery of such Certificates or did not hold such offices at the date of such Certificates. No Certificate shall be entitled to any benefit under this Agreement or be valid for any purpose, unless there appears on such Certificate a certificate of authentication substantially in the form provided herein executed by the Securities Administrator by manual signature, and such certificate of authentication shall be conclusive evidence, and the only evidence, that such Certificate has been duly authenticated and delivered hereunder. All Certificates shall be dated the date of their authentication. (b) The Class A Certificates and the Mezzanine Certificates shall initially be issued as one or more Certificates held by the Book-Entry Custodian or, if appointed to hold such Certificates as provided below, the Depository and registered in the name of the Depository or its nominee and, except as provided below, registration of such Certificates may not be transferred by the Securities Administrator except to another Depository that agrees to hold such Certificates for the respective Certificate Owners with Ownership Interests therein. The Certificate Owners shall hold their respective Ownership Interests in and to such Certificates through the book-entry facilities of the Depository and, except as provided below, shall not be entitled to definitive, fully registered Certificates ("Definitive Certificates") in respect of such Ownership Interests. All transfers by Certificate Owners of their respective Ownership Interests in the Book-Entry Certificates shall be made in accordance with the procedures established by the Depository Participant or brokerage firm representing such Certificate Owner. Each Depository Participant shall only transfer the Ownership Interests in the Book-Entry Certificates of Certificate Owners it represents or of brokerage firms for which it acts as agent in accordance with the Depository's normal procedures. The Securities Administrator is hereby initially appointed as the Book-Entry Custodian and hereby agrees to act as such in accordance herewith and in accordance with the agreement that it has with the Depository authorizing it to act as such. The Book-Entry Custodian may, and, if it is no longer qualified to act as such, the Book-Entry Custodian shall, appoint, by a written instrument delivered to the Depositor, the Servicers and, if the Trustee is not the Book-Entry Custodian, the Trustee, any other transfer agent (including the Depository or any successor Depository) to act as Book-Entry Custodian under such conditions as the predecessor Book-Entry Custodian and the Depository or any successor Depository may prescribe, provided that the predecessor Book-Entry Custodian shall not be relieved of any of its duties or responsibilities by reason of any such appointment of other than the Depository. If the Securities Administrator resigns or is removed in accordance with the terms hereof, the successor Securities Administrator or, if it so elects, the Depository shall immediately succeed to its predecessor's duties as Book-Entry Custodian. The Depositor shall have the right to inspect, and to obtain copies of, any Certificates held as Book-Entry Certificates by the Book-Entry Custodian. (c) The Class B Certificates initially offered and sold in offshore transactions in reliance on Regulation S shall be issued in the form of a temporary global certificate in definitive, fully registered form (each, a "Regulation S Temporary Global Certificate"), which shall be deposited with the Securities Administrator or an agent of the Securities Administrator as custodian for the Depository and registered in the name of Cede & Co. as nominee of the Depository for the account of designated agents holding on behalf of Euroclear or Clearstream. Beneficial interests in each Regulation S Temporary Global Certificate may be held only through Euroclear or Clearstream; provided, however, that such interests may be exchanged for interests in a Definitive Certificate in accordance with the requirements described in Section 6.02. After the expiration of the Release Date, a beneficial interest in a Regulation S Temporary Global Certificate may be exchanged for a beneficial interest in the related permanent global certificate of the same Class (each, a "Regulation S Permanent Global Certificate"), in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 6.02. Each Regulation S Permanent Global Certificate shall be deposited with the Securities Administrator or an agent of the Securities Administrator as custodian for the Depository and registered in the name of Cede & Co. as nominee of the Depository. The Class B Certificates offered and sold to Qualified Institutional Buyers ("QIBs") in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act ("Rule 144A") or institutional investors that are accredited investors within the meaning of Rule 501(a)(1), (2), (3) or (7) of Regulation D under the Securities Act ("Institutional Accredited Investors") will be issued in the form of Book-Entry Certificates. (d) The Class CE-1 Certificates, Class CE-2 Certificates and Class P Certificates offered and sold to QIBs in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act ("Rule 144A") will be issued in the form of Definitive Certificates. (e) The Trustee, the Servicers, the Securities Administrator, the Master Servicer and the Depositor may for all purposes (including the making of payments due on the Book-Entry Certificates and Global Certificates) deal with the Depository as the authorized representative of the Certificate Owners with respect to the Book-Entry Certificates and Global Certificates for the purposes of exercising the rights of Certificateholders hereunder. The rights of Certificate Owners with respect to the Book-Entry Certificates and Global Certificates shall be limited to those established by law and agreements between such Certificate Owners and the Depository Participants and brokerage firms representing such Certificate Owners. Multiple requests and directions from, and votes of, the Depository as Holder of the Book-Entry Certificates and Global Certificates with respect to any particular matter shall not be deemed inconsistent if they are made with respect to different Certificate Owners. The Securities Administrator may establish a reasonable record date in connection with solicitations of consents from or voting by Certificateholders and shall give notice to the Depository of such record date. If (i)(A) the Depositor advises the Securities Administrator in writing that the Depository is no longer willing or able to properly discharge its responsibilities as Depository, and (B) the Depositor is unable to locate a qualified successor, (ii) the Depositor at its option advises the Securities Administrator in writing that it elects to terminate the book-entry system through the Depository or (iii) after the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Default, Certificate Owners representing in the aggregate not less than 51% of the Ownership Interests of the Book-Entry Certificates advise the Securities Administrator through the Depository, in writing, that the continuation of a book-entry system through the Depository is no longer in the best interests of the Certificate Owners, the Securities Administrator shall notify all Certificate Owners, through the Depository, of the occurrence of any such event and of the availability of Definitive Certificates to Certificate Owners requesting the same. With respect to a Global Certificate, the related Certificate Owner (other than a Holder of a Regulation S Temporary Global Certificate) may request that its interest in a Global Certificate be exchanged for a Definitive Certificate. Upon surrender to the Securities Administrator of the Book-Entry Certificates by the Book-Entry Custodian or the Depository, as applicable, or the Global Certificates by the Depository accompanied by registration instructions from the Depository for registration of transfer, the Securities Administrator shall cause the Definitive Certificates to be issued. Such Definitive Certificates will be issued in minimum denominations of $10,000 except that any beneficial ownership that was represented by a Book-Entry Certificate, or a Global Certificate, as applicable in an amount less than $10,000 immediately prior to the issuance of a Definitive Certificate shall be issued in a minimum denomination equal to the amount represented by such Book-Entry Certificate or a Global Certificate, as applicable. None of the Depositor, the Servicers, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator or the Trustee shall be liable for any delay in the delivery of such instructions and may conclusively rely on, and shall be protected in relying on, such instructions. Upon the issuance of Definitive Certificates all references herein to obligations imposed upon or to be performed by the Depository shall be deemed to be imposed upon and performed by the Securities Administrator, to the extent applicable with respect to such Definitive Certificates, and the Securities Administrator shall recognize the Holders of the Definitive Certificates as Certificateholders hereunder. SECTION 6.02. Registration of Transfer and Exchange of Certificates. (a) The Securities Administrator shall cause to be kept at one of the offices or agencies to be appointed by the Securities Administrator in accordance with the provisions of Section 9.11, a Certificate Register for the Certificates in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Securities Administrator shall provide for the registration of Certificates and of transfers and exchanges of Certificates as herein provided. (b) No transfer of any Class B Certificate, Class CE-1 Certificate, Class CE-2 Certificate, Class P Certificate or Residual Certificate shall be made unless that transfer is made pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, and effective registration or qualification under applicable state securities laws, or is made in a transaction that does not require such registration or qualification. In the event that such a transfer of a Class B Certificate, Class CE-1 Certificate, Class CE-2 Certificate, Class P Certificate or Residual Certificate is to be made without registration or qualification (other than in connection with the initial transfer of any such Certificate by the Depositor), the Securities Administrator shall require receipt of: (i) if such transfer is purportedly being made in reliance upon Rule 144A under the Securities Act, written certifications from the Certificateholder desiring to effect the transfer and from such Certificateholder's prospective transferee, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B-1; (ii) if such transfer is purportedly being made in reliance upon Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act, written certifications from the Certificateholder desiring to effect the transfer and from such Certificateholder's prospective transferee, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B-2; (iii) if such transfer is purportedly being made in reliance on Regulation S, a written certification from the prospective transferee, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B-1 and (iv) in all other cases, an Opinion of Counsel satisfactory to the Securities Administrator that such transfer may be made without such registration or qualification (which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Trust Fund or of the Depositor, the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator or the Servicers), together with copies of the written certification(s) of the Certificateholder desiring to effect the transfer and/or such Certificateholder's prospective transferee upon which such Opinion of Counsel is based, if any. Neither of the Depositor nor the Securities Administrator is obligated to register or qualify any such Certificates under the Securities Act or any other securities laws or to take any action not otherwise required under this Agreement to permit the transfer of such Certificates without registration or qualification. Any Certificateholder desiring to effect the transfer of any such Certificate shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Trustee, the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator and the Servicers against any liability that may result if the transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with such federal and state laws. A holder of a beneficial interest in a Regulation S Temporary Global Certificate must provide Euroclear or Clearstream, as the case may be, with a certificate in the form of Annex A to Exhibit B-1 hereto certifying that the beneficial owner of the interest in such Global Certificate is not a U.S. Person (as defined in Regulation S), and Euroclear or Clearstream, as the case may be, must provide to the Trustee and Securities Administrator a certificate in the form of Exhibit B-1 hereto prior to (i) the payment of interest or principal with respect to such holder's beneficial interest in the Regulation S Temporary Global Certificate and (ii) any exchange of such beneficial interest for a beneficial interest in a Regulation S Permanent Global Certificate. (c) No transfer of a Class CE-1 Certificate, Class CE-2 Certificate, Class P Certificate or a Residual Certificate or any interest therein shall be made to any Plan subject to ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code, any Person acting, directly or indirectly, on behalf of any such Plan or any Person acquiring such Certificates with "Plan Assets" of a Plan within the meaning of the Department of Labor regulation promulgated at 29 C.F.R. ss. 2510.3-101 ("Plan Assets") unless the Securities Administrator is provided with an Opinion of Counsel on which the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee and the Servicers may rely, which establishes to the satisfaction of the Securities Administrator that the purchase of such Certificates is permissible under applicable law, will not constitute or result in any prohibited transaction under ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code and will not subject the Depositor, the Servicers, the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator or the Trust Fund to any obligation or liability (including obligations or liabilities under ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code) in addition to those undertaken in this Agreement, which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Depositor, the Servicers, the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trust Fund. An Opinion of Counsel will not be required in connection with the initial transfer of any such Certificate by the Depositor to an affiliate of the Depositor (in which case, the Depositor or any affiliate thereof shall have deemed to have represented that such affiliate is not a Plan or a Person investing Plan Assets) and the Securities Administrator shall be entitled to conclusively rely upon a representation (which, upon the request of the Securities Administrator, shall be a written representation) from the Depositor of the status of such transferee as an affiliate of the Depositor. Each Transferee of a Mezzanine Certificate or Class B Certificate will be deemed to have represented by virtue of its purchase or holding of such Certificate (or interest therein) that either (a) such Transferee is not a Plan or purchasing such Certificate with Plan Assets, (b) in the case of a Mezzanine Certificate, or a Class B-1 Certificate, it has acquired and is holding such Certificate in reliance on Prohibited Transaction Exemption ("PTE") 94-84 or FAN 97-03E, as amended by PTE 97-34, 62 Fed. Reg. 39021 (July 21, 1997), PTE 2000-58, 65 Fed. Reg. 67765 (November 13, 2000) and PTE 2002-41, 67 Fed. Reg. 54487 (August 22, 2002) (the "Exemption"), and that it understands that there are certain conditions to the availability of the Exemption including that such Certificate must be rated, at the time of purchase, not lower than "BBB-" (or its equivalent) by a Rating Agency and, in the case of the Class B-1 Certificates, that it will represent that it is an "accredited investor" as defined in Rule 501(a)(1) of Regulation D issued under the Securities Act and will obtain a representation from any transferee that such transferee is an accredited investor so long as it is required to obtain a representation regarding compliance with the Securities Act or (c) the following conditions are satisfied: (i) such Transferee is an insurance company, (ii) the source of funds used to purchase or hold such Certificate (or interest therein) is an "insurance company general account" (as defined in PTCE 95-60, and (iii) the conditions set forth in Sections I and III of PTCE 95-60 have been satisfied. If any Certificate or any interest therein is acquired or held in violation of the conditions described in this Section 6.02(c), the next preceding permitted beneficial owner will be treated as the beneficial owner of that Certificate, retroactive to the date of transfer to the purported beneficial owner. Any purported beneficial owner whose acquisition or holding of any certificate or interest therein was effected in violation of the conditions described in this Section 6.02(c) shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor, the Trustee, the Servicers, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator and the Trust Fund from and against any and all liabilities, claims, costs or expenses incurred by those parties as a result of that acquisition or holding. (d) (i) Each Person who has or who acquires any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall be deemed by the acceptance or acquisition of such Ownership Interest to have agreed to be bound by the following provisions and to have irrevocably authorized the Securities Administrator or its designee under clause (iii)(A) below to deliver payments to a Person other than such Person and to negotiate the terms of any mandatory sale under clause (iii)(B) below and to execute all instruments of Transfer and to do all other things necessary in connection with any such sale. The rights of each Person acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate are expressly subject to the following provisions: (A) Each Person holding or acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall be a Permitted Transferee and shall promptly notify the Securities Administrator of any change or impending change in its status as a Permitted Transferee. (B) In connection with any proposed Transfer of any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate, the Trustee shall require delivery to it, and shall not register the Transfer of any Residual Certificate until its receipt of, an affidavit and agreement (a "Transfer Affidavit and Agreement," in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B-3) from the proposed Transferee, in form and substance satisfactory to the Securities Administrator, representing and warranting, among other things, that such Transferee is a Permitted Transferee, that it is not acquiring its Ownership Interest in the Residual Certificate that is the subject of the proposed Transfer as a nominee, trustee or agent for any Person that is not a Permitted Transferee, that for so long as it retains its Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate, it will endeavor to remain a Permitted Transferee, and that it has reviewed the provisions of this Section 6.02(d) and agrees to be bound by them. (C) Notwithstanding the delivery of a Transfer Affidavit and Agreement by a proposed Transferee under clause (B) above, if an authorized officer of the Securities Administrator who is assigned to this transaction has actual knowledge that the proposed Transferee is not a Permitted Transferee, no Transfer of an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate to such proposed Transferee shall be effected. (D) Each Person holding or acquiring any Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate shall agree (x) to require a Transfer Affidavit and Agreement from any other Person to whom such Person attempts to transfer its Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate and (Y) not to transfer its Ownership Interest unless it provides a Transferor Affidavit (in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B-2) to the Securities Administrator stating that, among other things, it has no actual knowledge that such other Person is not a Permitted Transferee. (E) Each Person holding or acquiring an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate, by purchasing an Ownership Interest in such Certificate, agrees to give the Securities Administrator written notice that it is a "pass-through interest holder" within the meaning of temporary Treasury regulation Section 1.67-3T(a)(2)(i)(A) immediately upon acquiring an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate, if it is, or is holding an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate on behalf of, a "pass-through interest holder." (ii) The Securities Administrator will register the Transfer of any Residual Certificate only if it shall have received the Transfer Affidavit and Agreement and all of such other documents as shall have been reasonably required by the Securities Administrator as a condition to such registration. In addition, no Transfer of a Residual Certificate shall be made unless the Securities Administrator shall have received a representation letter from the Transferee of such Certificate to the effect that such Transferee is a Permitted Transferee. (iii) (A) If any purported Transferee shall become a Holder of a Residual Certificate in violation of the provisions of this Section 6.02(d), then the last preceding Permitted Transferee shall be restored, to the extent permitted by law, to all rights as holder thereof retroactive to the date of registration of such Transfer of such Residual Certificate. The Securities Administrator shall be under no liability to any Person for any registration of Transfer of a Residual Certificate that is in fact not permitted by this Section 6.02(d) or for making any payments due on such Certificate to the holder thereof or for taking any other action with respect to such holder under the provisions of this Agreement. (B) If any purported Transferee shall become a holder of a Residual Certificate in violation of the restrictions in this Section 6.02(d) and to the extent that the retroactive restoration of the rights of the holder of such Residual Certificate as described in clause (iii)(A) above shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, then the Securities Administrator shall have the right, without notice to the holder or any prior holder of such Residual Certificate, to sell such Residual Certificate to a purchaser selected by the Securities Administrator on such terms as the Securities Administrator may choose. Such purported Transferee shall promptly endorse and deliver each Residual Certificate in accordance with the instructions of the Securities Administrator. Such purchaser may be the Securities Administrator itself or any Affiliate of the Securities Administrator. The proceeds of such sale, net of the commissions (which may include commissions payable to the Securities Administrator or its Affiliates), expenses and taxes due, if any, will be remitted by the Securities Administrator to such purported Transferee. The terms and conditions of any sale under this clause (iii)(B) shall be determined in the sole discretion of the Securities Administrator, and the Securities Administrator shall not be liable to any Person having an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate as a result of its exercise of such discretion. (iv) The Securities Administrator shall make available to the Internal Revenue Service and those Persons specified by the REMIC Provisions all information necessary to compute any tax imposed (A) as a result of the Transfer of an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate to any Person who is a Disqualified Organization, including the information described in Treasury regulations sections 1.860D-1(b)(5) and 1.860E-2(a)(5) with respect to the "excess inclusions" of such Residual Certificate and (B) as a result of any regulated investment company, real estate investment trust, common trust fund, partnership, trust, estate or organization described in Section 1381 of the Code that holds an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate having as among its record holders at any time any Person which is a Disqualified Organization. Reasonable compensation for providing such information may be charged or collected by the Securities Administrator. (v) The provisions of this Section 6.02(d) set forth prior to this subsection (v) may be modified, added to or eliminated, provided that there shall have been delivered to the Securities Administrator at the expense of the party seeking to modify, add to or eliminate any such provision the following: (A) written notification from each Rating Agency to the effect that the modification, addition to or elimination of such provisions will not cause such Rating Agency to downgrade its then-current ratings of any Class of Certificates; and (B) an Opinion of Counsel, in form and substance satisfactory to the Securities Administrator, to the effect that such modification of, addition to or elimination of such provisions will not cause any Trust REMIC to cease to qualify as a REMIC and will not cause any Trust REMIC, as the case may be, to be subject to an entity-level tax caused by the Transfer of any Residual Certificate to a Person that is not a Permitted Transferee or a Person other than the prospective transferee to be subject to a REMIC-tax caused by the Transfer of a Residual Certificate to a Person that is not a Permitted Transferee. (e) Subject to the preceding subsections, upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Certificate at any office or agency of the Securities Administrator maintained for such purpose pursuant to Section 9.11, the Securities Administrator shall execute, authenticate and deliver, in the name of the designated Transferee or Transferees, one or more new Certificates of the same Class of a like aggregate Percentage Interest. (f) At the option of the Holder thereof, any Certificate may be exchanged for other Certificates of the same Class with authorized denominations and a like aggregate Percentage Interest, upon surrender of such Certificate to be exchanged at any office or agency of the Securities Administrator maintained for such purpose pursuant to Section 9.11. Whenever any Certificates are so surrendered for exchange, the Securities Administrator shall execute, authenticate and deliver, the Certificates which the Certificateholder making the exchange is entitled to receive. Every Certificate presented or surrendered for transfer or exchange shall (if so required by the Securities Administrator) be duly endorsed by, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in the form satisfactory to the Securities Administrator duly executed by, the Holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing. In addition, with respect to each Class R Certificate, the holder thereof may exchange, in the manner described above, such Class R Certificate for three separate certificates, each representing such holder's respective Percentage Interest in the Class R-I Interest, the Class R-II Interest and the Class R-III Interest, respectively, in each case that was evidenced by the Class R Certificate being exchanged. (g) No service charge to the Certificateholders shall be made for any transfer or exchange of Certificates, but the Securities Administrator may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any transfer or exchange of Certificates. (h) All Certificates surrendered for transfer and exchange shall be canceled and destroyed by the Securities Administrator in accordance with its customary procedures. SECTION 6.03. Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost or Stolen Certificates. If (i) any mutilated Certificate is surrendered to the Securities Administrator, or the Securities Administrator receives evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Certificate and of the ownership thereof, and (ii) there is delivered to Securities Administrator such security or indemnity as may be required by it to save it harmless, then, in the absence of actual knowledge by the Securities Administrator that such Certificate has been acquired by a protected purchaser, the Securities Administrator, shall execute, authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate, a new Certificate of the same Class and of like denomination and Percentage Interest. Upon the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section, the Securities Administrator may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Securities Administrator) connected therewith. Any replacement Certificate issued pursuant to this Section shall constitute complete and indefeasible evidence of ownership in the applicable REMIC created hereunder, as if originally issued, whether or not the lost, stolen or destroyed Certificate shall be found at any time. SECTION 6.04. Persons Deemed Owners. The Depositor, the Servicers, the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator and any agent of any of them may treat the Person in whose name any Certificate is registered as the owner of such Certificate for the purpose of receiving distributions pursuant to Section 4.01 and for all other purposes whatsoever, and none of the Depositor, the Servicers, the Trustee, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator or any agent of any of them shall be affected by notice to the contrary. SECTION 6.05. Certain Available Information. On or prior to the date of the first sale of any Class B Certificate, Class CE-1 Certificate, Class CE-2 Certificate, Class P Certificate or Residual Certificate to an Independent third party, the Depositor shall provide to the Securities Administrator ten copies of any private placement memorandum or other disclosure document used by the Depositor in connection with the offer and sale of such Certificate. In addition, if any such private placement memorandum or disclosure document is revised, amended or supplemented at any time following the delivery thereof to the Securities Administrator, the Depositor promptly shall inform the Securities Administrator of such event and shall deliver to the Securities Administrator ten copies of the private placement memorandum or disclosure document, as revised, amended or supplemented. The Securities Administrator shall maintain at its office as set forth in Section 12.05 hereof and shall make available free of charge during normal business hours for review by any Holder of a Certificate or any Person identified to the Securities Administrator as a prospective transferee of a Certificate, originals or copies of the following items: (i) in the case of a Holder or prospective transferee of a Class B Certificate, Class CE-1 Certificate, Class CE-2 Certificate, Class P Certificate or Residual Certificate, the related private placement memorandum or other disclosure document relating to such Class of Certificates, in the form most recently provided to the Securities Administrator; and (ii) in all cases, (A) this Agreement and any amendments hereof entered into pursuant to Section 11.01, (B) all monthly statements required to be delivered to Certificateholders of the relevant Class pursuant to Section 4.02 since the Closing Date, and all other notices, reports, statements and written communications delivered to the Certificateholders of the relevant Class pursuant to this Agreement since the Closing Date and (C) any copies of all Officers' Certificates of the Servicers since the Closing Date delivered to the Master Servicer to evidence such Person's determination that any P&I Advance or Servicing Advance was, or if made, would be a Nonrecoverable P&I Advance or Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance. Copies and mailing of any and all of the foregoing items will be available from the Securities Administrator upon request at the expense of the Person requesting the same.

SECTION 7.03. Limitation on Liability of the Depositor, the Servicers, the Master Servicer and Others. None of the Depositor, the Servicers, the Securities Administrator, the Master Servicer or any of the directors, officers, employees or agents of the Depositor, the Servicer or the Master Servicer shall be under any liability to the Trust Fund or the Certificateholders for any action taken or for refraining from the taking of any action in good faith pursuant to this Agreement, or for errors in judgment; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect the Depositor, a Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Master Servicer or any such person against any breach of warranties, representations or covenants made herein or against any specific liability imposed on any such Person pursuant hereto or against any liability which would otherwise be imposed by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of duties or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder. The Depositor, each Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Master Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Depositor, each Servicer, the Securities Administrator and the Master Servicer may rely in good faith on any document of any kind which, prima facie, is properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder. The Depositor, each Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Master Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Depositor, each Servicer, the Securities Administrator or the Master Servicer shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Trust Fund against any loss, liability or expense incurred in connection with any legal action relating to this Agreement, the Certificates or any Credit Risk Management Agreement or any loss, liability or expense incurred (including, without limitation, the acts or omissions of the Interim Servicer or the Interim Subservicer or the failure of the Interim Servicer or the Interim Subservicer to perform in accordance with the Interim Servicing Agreement; provided, however, that the Trust Fund shall have no obligation to indemnify any Servicer for any such acts or omissions of the Interim Servicer or the Interim Subservicer unless and until the related Servicer has first sought (employing commercially reasonable efforts) indemnification from the Interim Servicer or the Interim Subservicer, as applicable) other than by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of duties hereunder or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder. None of the Depositor, any Servicer, the Securities Administrator or the Master Servicer shall be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute or defend any legal action unless such action is related to its respective duties under this Agreement and, in its opinion, does not involve it in any expense or liability; provided, however, that each of the Depositor, each Servicer, the Securities Administrator and the Master Servicer may in its discretion undertake any such action which it may deem necessary or desirable with respect to this Agreement and the rights and duties of the parties hereto and the interests of the Certificateholders hereunder. In such event, the legal expenses and costs of such action and any liability resulting therefrom (except any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of duties hereunder or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder) shall be expenses, costs and liabilities of the Trust Fund, and the Depositor, the related Servicer, the Securities Administrator and the Master Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed therefor from the related Collection Account or the Distribution Account as and to the extent provided in Article III and Article IV, any such right of reimbursement being prior to the rights of the Certificateholders to receive any amount in the related Collection Account and the Distribution Account. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no Servicer shall be liable for any actions or inactions prior to the Cut-off Date of any prior servicer of the related Mortgage Loans and the Master Servicer shall not be liable for any action or inaction of any Servicer or the Interim Servicer, except to the extent expressly provided herein, or the Credit Risk Management Agreement. SECTION 7.04. Limitation on Resignation of the Servicers. (a) Except as expressly provided herein, no Servicer shall neither assign all or substantially all of its rights under this Agreement or the servicing hereunder nor delegate all or substantially all of its duties hereunder nor sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its property or assets without, in each case, the prior written consent of the Master Servicer, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld; provided, that in each case, there must be delivered to the Trustee and the Master Servicer a letter from each Rating Agency to the effect that such transfer of servicing or sale or disposition of assets will not result in a qualification, withdrawal or downgrade of the then-current rating of any of the Certificates. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Servicer, without the consent of the Trustee or the Master Servicer, may retain third-party contractors to perform certain servicing and loan administration functions, including without limitation hazard insurance administration, tax payment and administration, flood certification and administration, collection services and similar functions, provided, however, that the retention of such contractors by a Servicer shall not limit the obligation of such Servicer to service the related Mortgage Loans pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. No Servicer shall resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it except (i) upon determination that its duties hereunder are no longer permissible under applicable law, (ii) upon the related Servicer's written proposal of a successor servicer reasonably acceptable to each of the Seller, the Depositor and the Master Servicer or (iii) as provided in Section 7.04(c). No such resignation under clause (i) above shall become effective unless evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect obtained at the expense of such Servicer and delivered to the Trustee and the Rating Agencies. No such resignation of a Servicer under clause (ii) shall be effective unless: (i) the proposed successor Servicer is (1) an affiliate of the Master Servicer that services mortgage loans similar to the Mortgage Loans in the jurisdictions in which the related Mortgaged Properties are located or (2) the proposed successor Servicer has a rating of at least "Above Average" by S&P and either a rating of at least "RPS2" by Fitch or a rating of at least "SQ2" by Moody's; (ii) the Rating Agencies have confirmed to the Trustee that the appointment of the proposed successor servicer as the servicer under this Agreement will not result in the reduction or withdrawal of the then current ratings of any of the Certificates; and (iii) the proposed successor Servicer has a net worth of at least $25,000,000. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, no resignation of a Servicer shall become effective until the Master Servicer or a successor Servicer shall have assumed such Servicer's responsibilities, duties, liabilities (other than those liabilities arising prior to the appointment of such successor) and obligations under this Agreement. (b) Except as expressly provided herein, no Servicer shall assign or transfer any of its rights, benefits or privileges hereunder to any other Person, or delegate to or subcontract with, or authorize or appoint any other Person to perform any of the duties, covenants or obligations to be performed by such Servicer hereunder. The foregoing prohibition on assignment shall not prohibit a Servicer from designating a Sub-Servicer as payee of any indemnification amount payable to such Servicer hereunder; provided, however, that as provided in Section 3.02, no Sub-Servicer shall be a third-party beneficiary hereunder and the parties hereto shall not be required to recognize any Sub-Servicer as an indemnitee under this Agreement. (c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, each Servicer may pledge or assign as collateral all its rights, title and interest under this Agreement to a lender (the "Servicing Rights Lender"), provided, that: (i) upon a Servicer Event of Default and receipt of a notice of termination by such Servicer, the Servicing Rights Lender may direct such Servicer or its designee to appoint a successor Servicer pursuant to the provisions, and subject to the conditions, set forth in Section 8.02 regarding such appointment of a successor Servicer; (ii) the Servicing Rights Lender's rights are subject to this Agreement; and (iii) such Servicer shall remain subject to termination as servicer under this Agreement pursuant to the terms hereof. SECTION 7.05. Limitation on Resignation of the Master Servicer. The Master Servicer shall not resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it except upon determination that its duties hereunder are no longer permissible under applicable law. Any such determination pursuant to the preceding sentence permitting the resignation of the Master Servicer shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect obtained at the expense of the Master Servicer and delivered to the Trustee and the Rating Agencies. No resignation of the Master Servicer shall become effective until the Trustee or a successor Master Servicer meeting the criteria specified in Section 7.06 shall have assumed the Master Servicer's responsibilities, duties, liabilities (other than those liabilities arising prior to the appointment of such successor) and obligations under this Agreement. SECTION 7.06. Assignment of Master Servicing. The Master Servicer may sell and assign its rights and delegate its duties and obligations in its entirety as Master Servicer under this Agreement; provided, however, that: (i) the purchaser or transferee accept in writing such assignment and delegation and assume the obligations of the Master Servicer hereunder (a) shall have a net worth of not less than $15,000,000 (unless otherwise approved by each Rating Agency pursuant to clause (ii) below); (b) shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee (as evidenced in a writing signed by the Trustee); and (c) shall execute and deliver to the Trustee an agreement, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee, which contains an assumption by such Person of the due and punctual performance and observance of each covenant and condition to be performed or observed by it as master servicer under this Agreement, any custodial agreement from and after the effective date of such agreement; (ii) each Rating Agency shall be given prior written notice of the identity of the proposed successor to the Master Servicer and each Rating Agency's rating of the Certificates in effect immediately prior to such assignment, sale and delegation will not be downgraded, qualified or withdrawn as a result of such assignment, sale and delegation, as evidenced by a letter to such effect delivered to the Master Servicer and the Trustee; and (iii) the Master Servicer assigning and selling the master servicing shall deliver to the Trustee an officer's certificate and an Opinion of Independent counsel, each stating that all conditions precedent to such action under this Agreement have been completed and such action is permitted by and complies with the terms of this Agreement. No such assignment or delegation shall affect any liability of the Master Servicer arising out of acts or omissions prior to the effective date thereof. SECTION 7.07. Rights of the Depositor in Respect of the Servicers and the Master Servicer. Each of the Master Servicer and the Servicers shall afford (and any Sub-Servicing Agreement shall provide that each Sub-Servicer shall afford) the Depositor and the Trustee, upon reasonable notice, during normal business hours, access to all records maintained by the Master Servicer or the related Servicer (and any such Sub-Servicer) in respect of the related Servicer's rights and obligations hereunder and access to officers of the Master Servicer or the related Servicer (and those of any such Sub-Servicer) responsible for such obligations, and the Master Servicer shall have access to all such records maintained by the related Servicer and any Sub-Servicers. Upon request, each of the Master Servicer and such Servicer shall furnish to the Depositor and the Trustee its (and any such Sub-Servicer's) most recent financial statements and such other information relating to the Master Servicer's or such Servicer's capacity to perform its obligations under this Agreement as it possesses (and that any such Sub-Servicer possesses). To the extent such information is not otherwise available to the public, the Depositor and the Trustee shall not disseminate any information obtained pursuant to the preceding two sentences without the Master Servicer's or the related Servicer's written consent, except as required pursuant to this Agreement or to the extent that it is appropriate to do so (i) to its legal counsel, auditors, taxing authorities or other governmental agencies and the Certificateholders, (ii) pursuant to any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment, writ, injunction or decree of any court or governmental authority having jurisdiction over the Depositor and the Trustee or the Trust Fund, and in any case, the Depositor or the Trustee, (iii) disclosure of any and all information that is or becomes publicly known, or information obtained by the Trustee from sources other than the Depositor, the related Servicer or the Master Servicer, (iv) disclosure as required pursuant to this Agreement or (v) disclosure of any and all information (A) in any preliminary or final offering circular, registration statement or contract or other document pertaining to the transactions contemplated by the Agreement approved in advance by the Depositor, the related Servicer or the Master Servicer or (B) to any affiliate, independent or internal auditor, agent, employee or attorney of the Trustee having a need to know the same, provided that the Trustee advises such recipient of the confidential nature of the information being disclosed, shall use its best efforts to assure the confidentiality of any such disseminated non-public information. Nothing in this Section 7.07 shall limit the obligation of the Servicer to comply with any applicable law prohibiting disclosure of information regarding the Mortgagors and the failure of the related Servicer to provide access as provided in this Section 7.07 as a result of such obligation shall not constitute a breach of this Section. Nothing in this Section 7.07 shall require the related Servicer to collect, create, collate or otherwise generate any information that it does not generate in its usual course of business. No Servicer shall be required to make copies of or ship documents to any party unless provisions have been made for the reimbursement of the costs thereof. The Depositor may, but is not obligated to, enforce the obligations of the Master Servicer and the Servicers under this Agreement and may, but is not obligated to, perform, or cause a designee to perform, any defaulted obligation of the Master Servicer or any Servicer under this Agreement or exercise the rights of the Master Servicer or any Servicer under this Agreement; provided that neither the Master Servicer nor the Servicer shall be relieved of any of its obligations under this Agreement by virtue of such performance by the Depositor or its designee. The Depositor shall not have any responsibility or liability for any action or failure to act by the Master Servicer or the Servicer and is not obligated to supervise the performance of the Master Servicer or any Servicer under this Agreement or otherwise. SECTION 7.08. Duties of the Credit Risk Manager. For and on behalf of the Depositor, the Credit Risk Manager will provide reports and recommendations concerning certain delinquent and defaulted Mortgage Loans, and as to the collection of any Prepayment Charges with respect to the Mortgage Loans. Such reports and recommendations will be based upon information provided to the Credit Risk Manager pursuant to the Credit Risk Management Agreements, and the Credit Risk Manager shall look solely to the Servicers and/or Master Servicer for all information and data (including loss and delinquency information and data) relating to the servicing of the related Mortgage Loans. Upon any termination of the Credit Risk Manager or the appointment of a successor Credit Risk Manager, the Depositor shall give written notice thereof to the Servicer, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Trustee, and each Rating Agency. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the termination of the Credit Risk Manager pursuant to this Section shall not become effective until the appointment of a successor Credit Risk Manager. SECTION 7.09. Limitation Upon Liability of the Credit Risk Manager. Neither the Credit Risk Manager, nor any of its directors, officers, employees, or agents shall be under any liability to the Trustee, the Certificateholders, or the Depositor for any action taken or for refraining from the taking of any action made in good faith pursuant to this Agreement, in reliance upon information provided by the Servicer under the related Credit Risk Management Agreement, or for errors in judgment; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect the Credit Risk Manager or any such person against liability that would otherwise be imposed by reason of willful malfeasance or bad faith in its performance of its duties. The Credit Risk Manager and any director, officer, employee, or agent of the Credit Risk Manager may rely in good faith on any document of any kind prima facie properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder, and may rely in good faith upon the accuracy of information furnished by the Servicer pursuant to the related Credit Risk Management Agreement in the performance of its duties thereunder and hereunder. SECTION 7.10. Removal of the Credit Risk Manager. The Credit Risk Manager may be removed as Credit Risk Manager by Certificateholders holding not less than 66 2/3% of the Voting Rights in the Trust Fund, in the exercise of its or their sole discretion. The Certificateholders shall provide written notice of the Credit Risk Manager's removal to the Trustee. Upon receipt of such notice, the Trustee shall provide written notice to the Credit Risk Manager of its removal, which shall be effective upon receipt of such notice by the Credit Risk Manager, with a copy to the Securities Administrator and the Master Servicer.

(a) "Servicer Event of Default," wherever used herein, means any one of the following events: (i) any failure by a Servicer to remit to the Securities Administrator for distribution to the Certificateholders any payment (other than a P&I Advance required to be made from its own funds on any Servicer Remittance Date pursuant to Section 5.03) required to be made by such Servicer under the terms of the Certificates and this Agreement which continues unremedied for a period of one Business Day after the date upon which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to such Servicer by the Depositor or the Trustee (in which case notice shall be provided by telecopy), or to such Servicer, the Depositor, the Trustee and by the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights; or (ii) any failure on the part of a Servicer duly to observe or perform in any material respect any other of the covenants or agreements on the part of such Servicer contained in this Agreement, or the material breach by a Servicer of any representation and warranty contained in Section 2.05, which continues unremedied for a period of thirty (30) days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to such Servicer by the Depositor or the Trustee or to such Servicer, the Depositor and the Trustee by the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights; provided, however, that in the case of a failure that cannot be cured within thirty (30) days, the cure period may be extended for an additional thirty (30) days if such Servicer can demonstrate to the reasonable satisfaction of the Trustee that the Servicer is diligently pursuing remedial action; or (iii) a decree or order of a court or agency or supervisory authority having jurisdiction in the premises in an involuntary case under any present or future federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law or the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceeding, or for the winding-up or liquidation of its affairs, shall have been entered against a Servicer and such decree or order shall have remained in force undischarged or unstayed for a period of ninety (90) days; or (iv) a Servicer shall consent to the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings of or relating to it or of or relating to all or substantially all of its property; or (v) a Servicer shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, file a petition to take advantage of any applicable insolvency or reorganization statute, make an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or voluntarily suspend payment of its obligations; (vi) failure by a Servicer to duly perform, within the required time period, its obligations under Section 3.17, 3.18 or 3.19 which failure continues unremedied for a period of ten (10) days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to the Servicer by any party to this Agreement; or (vii) any failure of a Servicer to make any P&I Advance on any Servicer Remittance Date required to be made from its own funds pursuant to Section 5.03 which continues unremedied until 3:00 p.m. New York time on the Business Day immediately following the Servicer Remittance Date; or (viii) failure of a Servicer (other than Countrywide) to maintain at least an "average" rating from the Rating Agencies. If a Servicer Event of Default described in clauses (i) through (vi) or (viii) of this Section shall occur, then, and in each and every such case, so long as such Servicer Event of Default shall not have been remedied, the Depositor or the Trustee may, and at the written direction of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 51% of Voting Rights, the Trustee shall, by notice in writing to the defaulting Servicer (and to the Depositor if given by the Trustee or to the Trustee if given by the Depositor) with a copy to the Master Servicer and each Rating Agency, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the defaulting Servicer in its capacity as a Servicer under this Agreement, to the extent permitted by law, and in and to the related Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof. If a Servicer Event of Default described in clause (vii) hereof shall occur, the Trustee shall, by notice in writing to the defaulting Servicer, the Depositor and the Master Servicer, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the defaulting Servicer in its capacity as a Servicer under this Agreement and in and to the related Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof. Subject to Section 8.02, on or after the receipt by the defaulting Servicer of such written notice, all authority and power of the defaulting Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Certificates (other than as a Holder of any Certificate) or the related Mortgage Loans or otherwise, shall pass to and be vested in the Master Servicer pursuant to and under this Section, and, without limitation, the Master Servicer is hereby authorized and empowered, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, to execute and deliver, on behalf of and at the expense of the defaulting Servicer, any and all documents and other instruments and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such notice of termination, whether to complete the transfer and endorsement or assignment of the related Mortgage Loans and related documents, or otherwise. The defaulting Servicer agrees promptly (and in any event no later than ten (10) Business Days subsequent to such notice) to provide the Master Servicer with all documents and records requested by it to enable it to assume the defaulting Servicer's functions under this Agreement, and to cooperate with the Master Servicer in effecting the termination of the defaulting Servicer's responsibilities and rights under this Agreement, including, without limitation, the transfer within one (1) Business Day to the Master Servicer for administration by it of all cash amounts which at the time shall be or should have been credited by the defaulting Servicer to the related Collection Account held by or on behalf of the defaulting Servicer or thereafter be received with respect to the related Mortgage Loans or any related REO Property (provided, however, that the defaulting Servicer shall continue to be entitled to receive all amounts accrued or owing to it under this Agreement on or prior to the date of such termination, whether in respect of P&I Advances, Servicing Advances, accrued and unpaid Servicing Fees or otherwise, and shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Section 7.03, notwithstanding any such termination, with respect to events occurring prior to such termination). Reimbursement of unreimbursed P&I Advances, Servicing Advances and accrued and unpaid Servicing Fees shall be made on a first in, first out ("FIFO") basis no later than the Servicer Remittance Date. For purposes of this Section 8.01(a), the Trustee shall not be deemed to have knowledge of a Servicer Event of Default unless a Responsible Officer of the Trustee assigned to and working in the Trustee's Corporate Trust Office has actual knowledge thereof or unless written notice of any event which is in fact such a Servicer Event of Default is received by the Trustee at its Corporate Trust Office and such notice references the Certificates, the Trust or this Agreement. The Trustee shall promptly notify the Master Servicer and the Rating Agencies of the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Default of which it has knowledge as provided above. The Master Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed by the defaulting Servicer (or from amounts on deposit in the Distribution Account if the defaulting Servicer is unable to fulfill its obligations hereunder) for all reasonable out-of-pocket or third party costs associated with the transfer of servicing from the defaulting Servicer, including without limitation, any reasonable out-of-pocket or third party costs or expenses associated with the complete transfer of all servicing data and the completion, correction or manipulation of such servicing data as may be required by the Master Servicer to correct any errors or insufficiencies in the servicing data or otherwise to enable the Master Servicer to service the related Mortgage Loans properly and effectively, upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs and expenses. (b) "Master Servicer Event of Default," wherever used herein, means any one of the following events: (i) any failure on the part of the Master Servicer duly to observe or perform in any material respect any other of the covenants or agreements on the part of the Master Servicer contained in this Agreement, or the breach by the Master Servicer of any representation and warranty contained in Section 2.04, which continues unremedied for a period of 30 days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given to the Master Servicer by the Depositor or the Trustee or to the Master Servicer, the Depositor and the Trustee by the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights; or (ii) a decree or order of a court or agency or supervisory authority having jurisdiction in the premises in an involuntary case under any present or future federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law or the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceeding, or for the winding-up or liquidation of its affairs, shall have been entered against the Master Servicer and such decree or order shall have remained in force undischarged or unstayed for a period of 90 days; or (iii) the Master Servicer shall consent to the appointment of a conservator or receiver or liquidator in any insolvency, readjustment of debt, marshalling of assets and liabilities or similar proceedings of or relating to it or of or relating to all or substantially all of its property; or (iv) the Master Servicer shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, file a petition to take advantage of any applicable insolvency or reorganization statute, make an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or voluntarily suspend payment of its obligations. If a Master Servicer Event of Default shall occur, then, and in each and every such case, so long as such Master Servicer Event of Default shall not have been remedied, the Depositor or the Trustee may, and at the written direction of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 51% of Voting Rights, the Trustee shall, by notice in writing to the Master Servicer (and to the Depositor if given by the Trustee or to the Trustee if given by the Depositor) with a copy to each Rating Agency, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Master Servicer in its capacity as Master Servicer under this Agreement, to the extent permitted by law, and in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof. On or after the receipt by the Master Servicer of such written notice, all authority and power of the Master Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Certificates (other than as a Holder of any Certificate) or the Mortgage Loans or otherwise including, without limitation, the compensation payable to the Master Servicer under this Agreement, shall pass to and be vested in the Trustee pursuant to and under this Section, and, without limitation, the Trustee is hereby authorized and empowered, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, to execute and deliver, on behalf of and at the expense of the Master Servicer, any and all documents and other instruments and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such notice of termination, whether to complete the transfer and endorsement or assignment of the Mortgage Loans and related documents, or otherwise. The Master Servicer agrees promptly (and in any event no later than ten Business Days subsequent to such notice) to provide the Trustee with all documents and records requested by it to enable it to assume the Master Servicer's functions under this Agreement, and to cooperate with the Trustee in effecting the termination of the Master Servicer's responsibilities and rights under this Agreement (provided, however, that the Master Servicer shall continue to be entitled to receive all amounts accrued or owing to it under this Agreement on or prior to the date of such termination and shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Section 7.03, notwithstanding any such termination, with respect to events occurring prior to such termination). For purposes of this Section 8.01(b), the Trustee shall not be deemed to have knowledge of a Master Servicer Event of Default unless a Responsible Officer of the Trustee assigned to and working in the Trustee's Corporate Trust Office has actual knowledge thereof or unless written notice of any event which is in fact such a Master Servicer Event of Default is received by the Trustee and such notice references the Certificates, the Trust or this Agreement. The Trustee shall promptly notify the Rating Agencies of the occurrence of a Master Servicer Event of Default of which it has knowledge as provided above. To the extent that the costs and expenses of the Trustee related to the termination of the Master Servicer, appointment of a successor Master Servicer or the transfer and assumption of the master servicing by the Trustee (including, without limitation, (i) all legal costs and expenses and all due diligence costs and expenses associated with an evaluation of the potential termination of the Master Servicer as a result of a Master Servicer Event of Default and (ii) all costs and expenses associated with the complete transfer of the master servicing, including all servicing files and all servicing data and the completion, correction or manipulation of such servicing data as may be required by the successor Master Servicer to correct any errors or insufficiencies in the servicing data or otherwise to enable the successor Master Servicer to master service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with this Agreement) are not fully and timely reimbursed by the terminated Master Servicer, the Trustee shall be entitled to reimbursement of such costs and expenses from the Distribution Account. SECTION 8.02. Master Servicer to Act; Appointment of Successor. (a) On and after the time a Servicer receives a notice of termination, the Master Servicer shall be the successor in all respects to such Servicer in its capacity as a Servicer under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for herein, and all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities relating thereto and arising thereafter shall be assumed by the Master Servicer (except for any representations or warranties of such Servicer under this Agreement, the responsibilities, duties and liabilities contained in Section 2.03 and the obligation to deposit amounts in respect of losses pursuant to Section 3.10(b)) by the terms and provisions hereof including, without limitation, such Servicer's obligations to make P&I Advances pursuant to Section 5.03 of this Agreement; provided, however, that if the Master Servicer is prohibited by law or regulation from obligating itself to make advances regarding delinquent mortgage loans, then the Master Servicer shall not be obligated to make P&I Advances pursuant to Section 5.03 of this Agreement; and provided further, that any failure to perform such duties or responsibilities caused by such Servicer's failure to provide information required by Section 8.01 shall not be considered a default by the Master Servicer as successor to such Servicer hereunder; provided, however, that (1) it is understood and acknowledged by the parties hereto that there will be a period of transition (not to exceed 120 days) before the actual servicing functions can be fully transferred to the Master Servicer or any successor Servicer appointed in accordance with the following provisions and (2) any failure to perform such duties or responsibilities caused by such Servicer's failure to provide information required by Section 8.01 of this Agreement shall not be considered a default by the Master Servicer as successor to such Servicer. As compensation therefor, the Master Servicer shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee and all funds relating to the related Mortgage Loans to which the terminated Servicer would have been entitled if it had continued to act hereunder. Notwithstanding the above and subject to the immediately following paragraph, the Master Servicer may, if it shall be unwilling to so act, or shall, if it is unable to so act promptly appoint or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint, a Person that satisfies the eligibility criteria set forth below as the successor to the terminated Servicer under this Agreement in the assumption of all or any part of the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of the terminated Servicer under this Agreement. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, for a period of 30 days following the date on which Ocwen shall have received a notice of termination pursuant to Section 8.01 of this Agreement, Ocwen or its designee may appoint a successor Servicer that satisfies the eligibility criteria of a successor Servicer set forth below, which appointment shall be subject to the consent of the Depositor, the Seller, the Master Servicer, and the Trustee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; provided that such successor Servicer agrees to fully effect the servicing transfer within 120 days following the termination of Ocwen and to make all P&I Advances that would otherwise be made by the Master Servicer under Section 8.01 as of the date of such appointment, and to reimburse the Master Servicer for any unreimbursed P&I Advances they have made and any reimbursable expenses that they may have incurred in connection with this Section 8.02. Any proceeds received in connection with the appointment of such successor Servicer shall be the property of Ocwen or its designee. This 30-day period shall terminate immediately (i) at the close of business on the second Business Day of such 30-day period if (A) Ocwen was terminated because of an Event of Default described in Section 8.01(a)(vii) for failing to make a required P&I Advance, and (B) Ocwen shall have failed to make (or cause to be made) such P&I Advance, or shall fail to reimburse (or cause to be reimbursed) the Master Servicer for a P&I Advance made by the Master Servicer, by the close of business on such second Business Day, or (ii) at the close of business on the second Business Day following the date (if any) during such 30-day period on which a P&I Advance is due to be made, if Ocwen shall have failed to make (or caused to be made) such P&I Advance, or Ocwen shall have failed to reimburse (or cause to be reimbursed) the Master Servicer for such P&I Advance, by the close of business on such second Business Day; provided, that such 30-day period shall only be terminated to the extent that the Lender has received notice of such failure from the Master Servicer and the Lender has not cured or caused the cure of such failure within two (2) Business Days following receipt of notice, provided, however, that such notice requirement shall only be applicable to the extent that the Master Servicer has been provided with the written address and contact information for the lender. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in no event shall the Trustee or the Master Servicer be liable for any Servicing Fee or for any differential in the amount of the Servicing Fee paid hereunder and the amount necessary to induce any successor Servicer to act as successor Servicer under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for herein. Any successor Servicer appointed under this Agreement must (i) be an established mortgage loan servicing institution that is a Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac approved seller/servicer, (ii) be approved by each Rating Agency by a written confirmation from each Rating Agency that the appointment of such successor Servicer would not result in the reduction or withdrawal of the then current ratings of any outstanding Class of Certificates, (iii) have a net worth of not less than $15,000,000 and (iv) assume all the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of the related Servicer (other than liabilities of the related Servicer hereunder incurred prior to termination of the related Servicer under Section 8.01 herein) under this Agreement as if originally named as a party to this Agreement. In addition, (i) until Countrywide purchases the servicing rights with respect to the New Century Mortgage Loans, the Depositor shall have the right to appoint a qualified successor servicer in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein to service the New Century Mortgage Loans, and (ii) unless Ocwen purchase the servicing rights with respect to the Ocwen Mortgage Loans, the Depositor shall have the right to appoint a qualified successor servicer in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein to service the Ocwen Mortgage Loans. (b) (1) All servicing transfer costs (including, without limitation, servicing transfer costs of the type described in Section 8.02(a) and incurred by the Trustee, the Master Servicer and any successor Servicer under paragraph (b)(2) below) shall be paid by the terminated Servicer upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs, and if such predecessor or initial Servicer, as applicable, defaults in its obligation to pay such costs, the successor Servicer, the Master Servicer and the Trustee shall be entitled to reimbursement therefor from the assets of the Trust Fund. (2) No appointment of a successor to a Servicer under this Agreement shall be effective until the assumption by the successor of all of such Servicer's responsibilities, duties and liabilities hereunder. In connection with such appointment and assumption described herein, the Trustee may make such arrangements for the compensation of such successor out of payments on Mortgage Loans as it and such successor shall agree; provided, however, that no such compensation shall be in excess of that permitted the related Servicer as such hereunder. The Depositor, the Trustee and such successor shall take such action, consistent with this Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession. Pending appointment of a successor to the related Servicer under this Agreement, the Master Servicer shall act in such capacity as hereinabove provided. SECTION 8.03. Notification to Certificateholders. (a) Upon any termination of a Servicer or the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 8.01(a) or (b) or any appointment of a successor to a Servicer or the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 8.02, the Trustee shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Certificateholders at their respective addresses appearing in the Certificate Register. (b) Not later than the later of sixty (60) days after the occurrence of any event, which constitutes or which, with notice or lapse of time or both, would constitute a Servicer Event of Default or a Master Servicer Event of Default or five (5) days after a Responsible Officer of the Trustee becomes aware of the occurrence of such an event, the Trustee shall transmit by mail to all Holders of Certificates notice of each such occurrence, unless such default or Servicer Event of Default or Master Servicer Event of Default shall have been cured or waived. SECTION 8.04. Waiver of Servicer Events of Default. The Holders representing at least 66% of the Voting Rights evidenced by all Classes of Certificates affected by any default, Servicer Event of Default or Master Servicer Event of Default hereunder may waive such default, Servicer Event of Default or Master Servicer Event of Default; provided, however, that a Servicer Event of Default under clause (i) or (vii) of Section 8.01(a) may be waived only by all of the Holders of the Regular Certificates. Upon any such waiver of a default, Servicer Event of Default or Master Servicer Event of Default, such default, Servicer Event of Default or Master Servicer Event of Default shall cease to exist and shall be deemed to have been remedied for every purpose hereunder. No such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other default, Servicer Event of Default or Master Servicer Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereon except to the extent expressly so waived.

ARTICLE IX CONCERNING THE TRUSTEE AND THE SECURITIES ADMINISTRATOR SECTION 9.01. Duties of Trustee and Securities Administrator. The Trustee, prior to the occurrence of a Master Servicer Event of Default and after the curing or waiver of all Master Servicer Events of Default which may have occurred, and the Securities Administrator each undertake to perform such duties and only such duties as are specifically set forth in this Agreement as duties of the Trustee and the Securities Administrator, respectively. During the continuance of a Master Servicer Event of Default, the Trustee shall exercise such of the rights and powers vested in it by this Agreement, and use the same degree of care and skill in its exercise as a prudent person would exercise or use under the circumstances in the conduct of such person's own affairs. Any permissive right of the Trustee enumerated in this Agreement shall not be construed as a duty. Each of the Trustee and the Securities Administrator, upon receipt of all resolutions, certificates, statements, opinions, reports, documents, orders or other instruments furnished to it, which are specifically required to be furnished pursuant to any provision of this Agreement, shall examine them to determine whether they conform to the requirements of this Agreement. If any such instrument is found not to conform to the requirements of this Agreement in a material manner, the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, as the case may be, shall take such action as it deems appropriate to have the instrument corrected, and if the instrument is not corrected to its satisfaction, the Securities Administrator will provide notice to the Trustee thereof and the Trustee will provide notice to the Certificateholders. The Trustee shall promptly remit to the related Servicer any complaint, claim, demand, notice or other document (collectively, the "Notices") delivered to the Trustee as a consequence of the assignment of any Mortgage Loan hereunder and relating to the servicing of the Mortgage Loans; provided than any such notice (i) is delivered to the Trustee at its Corporate Trust Office, (ii) contains information sufficient to permit the Trustee to make a determination that the real property to which such document relates is a Mortgaged Property. The Trustee shall have no duty hereunder with respect to any Notice it may receive or which may be alleged to have been delivered to or served upon it unless such Notice is delivered to it or served upon it at its Corporate Trust Office and such Notice contains the information required pursuant to clause (ii) of the preceding sentence. No provision of this Agreement shall be construed to relieve the Trustee or the Securities Administrator from liability for its own negligent action, its own negligent failure to act or its own misconduct; provided, however, that: (i) Prior to the occurrence of a Master Servicer Event of Default, and after the curing or waiver of all such Master Servicer Events of Default which may have occurred with respect to the Trustee and at all times with respect to the Securities Administrator, the duties and obligations of the Trustee shall be determined solely by the express provisions of this Agreement, neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall be liable except for the performance of such duties and obligations as are specifically set forth in this Agreement, no implied covenants or obligations shall be read into this Agreement against the Trustee or the Securities Administrator and, in the absence of bad faith on the part of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, respectively, the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, respectively, may conclusively rely, as to the truth of the statements and the correctness of the opinions expressed therein, upon any certificates or opinions furnished to the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, respectively, that conform to the requirements of this Agreement; (ii) Neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall be liable for an error of judgment made in good faith by a Responsible Officer or Responsible Officers of the Trustee or an officer or officers of the Securities Administrator, respectively, unless it shall be proved that the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, respectively, was negligent in ascertaining the pertinent facts; and (iii) Neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall be liable with respect to any action taken, suffered or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with the direction of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights relating to the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Trustee or the Securities Administrator or exercising any trust or power conferred upon the Trustee or the Securities Administrator under this Agreement. SECTION 9.02. Certain Matters Affecting Trustee and Securities Administrator. (a) Except as otherwise provided in Section 9.01: (i) The Trustee and the Securities Administrator may request and rely upon and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon any resolution, Officers' Certificate, certificate of auditors or any other certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, consent, order, appraisal, bond or other paper or document reasonably believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties; (ii) The Trustee and the Securities Administrator may consult with counsel of its selection and any advice of such counsel or any Opinion of Counsel shall be full and complete authorization and protection in respect of any action taken or suffered or omitted by it hereunder in good faith and in accordance with such advice or Opinion of Counsel; (iii) Neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall be under any obligation to exercise any of the trusts or powers vested in it by this Agreement or to institute, conduct or defend any litigation hereunder or in relation hereto at the request, order or direction of any of the Certificateholders, pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, unless such Certificateholders shall have offered to the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, as the case may be, reasonable security or indemnity satisfactory to it against the costs, expenses and liabilities which may be incurred therein or thereby; nothing contained herein shall, however, relieve the Trustee of the obligation, upon the occurrence of a Master Servicer Event of Default (which has not been cured or waived), to exercise such of the rights and powers vested in it by this Agreement, and to use the same degree of care and skill in their exercise as a prudent person would exercise or use under the circumstances in the conduct of such person's own affairs; (iv) Neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall be liable for any action taken, suffered or omitted by it in good faith and believed by it to be authorized or within the discretion or rights or powers conferred upon it by this Agreement; (v) Prior to the occurrence of a Master Servicer Event of Default hereunder and after the curing or waiver of all Master Servicer Events of Default which may have occurred with respect to the Trustee and at all times with respect to the Securities Administrator, neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall be bound to make any investigation into the facts or matters stated in any resolution, certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, consent, order, approval, bond or other paper or document, unless requested in writing to do so by the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights; provided, however, that if the payment within a reasonable time to the Trustee or the Securities Administrator of the costs, expenses or liabilities likely to be incurred by it in the making of such investigation is, in the opinion of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, as applicable, not reasonably assured to the Trustee or the Securities Administrator by such Certificateholders, the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, as applicable, may require reasonable indemnity satisfactory to it against such expense, or liability from such Certificateholders as a condition to taking any such action; (vi) The Trustee may execute any of the trusts or powers hereunder or perform any duties hereunder either directly or by or through agents or attorneys and the Trustee shall not be responsible for any misconduct or negligence on the part of any agent or attorney appointed with due care by it hereunder; (vii) The Trustee shall not be liable for any loss resulting from the investment of funds held in the Collection Account, for any loss resulting from the investment of funds held in the Reserve Fund or for any loss resulting from the redemption or sale of any such investment as therein authorized; (viii) The Trustee shall not be deemed to have notice of any default, Master Servicer Event of Default or Servicer Event of Default unless a Responsible Officer of the Trustee has actual knowledge thereof or unless written notice of any event which is in fact such a default is received by a Responsible Officer of the Trustee at the Corporate Trust Office of the Trustee, and such notice references the Certificates and this Agreement; and (ix) The rights, privileges, protections, immunities and benefits given to the Trustee, including, without limitation, its right to be indemnified, are extended to, and shall be enforceable by, each agent, custodian and other Person employed to act hereunder. (b) All rights of action under this Agreement or under any of the Certificates, enforceable by the Trustee, may be enforced by it without the possession of any of the Certificates, or the production thereof at the trial or other proceeding relating thereto, and any such suit, action or proceeding instituted by the Trustee shall be brought in its name for the benefit of all the Holders of such Certificates, subject to the provisions of this Agreement. (c) The Trustee is hereby directed by the Depositor to execute the Cap Contracts on behalf of the Trust Fund in the form presented to it by the Depositor and shall have no responsibility for the contents of the Cap Contracts, including, without limitation, the representations and warranties contained therein. Any funds payable by the Trustee under the Cap Contracts at closing shall be paid by the Depositor. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in the Cap Contracts, the Trustee shall not be required to make any payments to the counterparty under the Cap Contracts. (d) None of the Securities Administrator, the Master Servicer, the Servicer, the Seller, the Depositor, the Custodians or the Trustee shall be responsible for the acts or omissions of the others, it being understood that this Agreement shall not be construed to render those partners joint venturers or agents of one another. SECTION 9.03. Trustee and Securities Administrator not Liable for Certificates or Mortgage Loans. The recitals contained herein and in the Certificates (other than the signature of the Securities Administrator, the authentication of the Securities Administrator on the Certificates, the acknowledgments of the Trustee contained in Article II and the representations and warranties of the Trustee in Section 9.12) shall be taken as the statements of the Depositor and neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator assumes any responsibility for their correctness. Neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator makes any representations or warranties as to the validity or sufficiency of this Agreement (other than as specifically set forth in Section 9.12) or of the Certificates (other than the signature of the Securities Administrator and authentication of the Securities Administrator on the Certificates) or of any Mortgage Loan or related document. The Trustee and the Securities Administrator shall not be accountable for the use or application by the Depositor of any of the Certificates or of the proceeds of such Certificates, or for the use or application of any funds paid to the Depositor or the Master Servicer in respect of the Mortgage Loans or deposited in or withdrawn from any Collection Account by the related Servicer, other than with respect to the Securities Administrator any funds held by it or on behalf of the Trustee in accordance with Section 3.23 and 3.24. SECTION 9.04. Trustee and Securities Administrator May Own Certificates. Each of the Trustee and the Securities Administrator in its individual capacity or any other capacity may become the owner or pledgee of Certificates and may transact business with other interested parties and their Affiliates with the same rights it would have if it were not Trustee or the Securities Administrator. SECTION 9.05. Fees and Expenses of Trustee and Securities Administrator. The fees of the Trustee and the Securities Administrator hereunder, of Wells Fargo as the Custodian under the Wells Fargo Custodial Agreement or of DBNT as the Custodian under the DBNT Custodial Agreement shall be paid in accordance with a side letter agreement with the Master Servicer and at the sole expense of the Master Servicer. In addition, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the Custodians and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee, the Securities Administrator and the Custodians shall be indemnified by the Trust and held harmless against any loss, liability or expense (including reasonable attorney's fees and expenses) incurred by the Trustee, the Custodians or the Securities Administrator in connection with any claim or legal action or any pending or threatened claim or legal action arising out of or in connection with the acceptance or administration of its respective obligations and duties under this Agreement, including the Cap Contracts and any and all other agreements related hereto, other than any loss, liability or expense (i) for which the Trustee is indemnified by the Master Servicer or any Servicer, (ii) that constitutes a specific liability of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator pursuant to Section 11.01(g) or (iii) any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of duties hereunder by the Trustee or the Securities Administrator or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder. In no event shall the Trustee or the Securities Administrator be liable for special, indirect or consequential loss or damage of any kind whatsoever (including but not limited to lost profits), even if it has been advised of the likelihood of such loss or damage and regardless of the form of action. The Master Servicer agrees to indemnify the Trustee, from, and hold the Trustee harmless against, any loss, liability or expense (including reasonable attorney's fees and expenses) incurred by the Trustee by reason of the Master Servicer's willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties under this Agreement or by reason of the Master Servicer's reckless disregard of its obligations and duties under this Agreement. In addition, the Seller agrees to indemnify the Trustee for, and to hold the Trustee harmless against, any loss, liability or expense arising out of, or in connection with, the provisions set forth in the last paragraph of Section 2.01, including, without limitation, all costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) of investigating and defending itself against any claim, action or proceeding, pending or threatened, relating to the provisions of such paragraph. The indemnities in this Section 9.05 shall survive the termination or discharge of this Agreement and the resignation or removal of the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator or the Custodians. Any payment hereunder made by the Master Servicer to the Trustee shall be from the Master Servicer's own funds, without reimbursement from REMIC I therefor. SECTION 9.06. Eligibility Requirements for Trustee and Securities Administrator. The Trustee and the Securities Administrator shall at all times be a corporation or an association (other than the Depositor, the Seller, the Master Servicer or any Affiliate of the foregoing) organized and doing business under the laws of any state or the United States of America, authorized under such laws to exercise corporate trust powers, having a combined capital and surplus of at least $50,000,000 (or a member of a bank holding company whose capital and surplus is at least $50,000,000) and subject to supervision or examination by federal or state authority. If such corporation or association publishes reports of conditions at least annually, pursuant to law or to the requirements of the aforesaid supervising or examining authority, then for the purposes of this Section the combined capital and surplus of such corporation or association shall be deemed to be its combined capital and surplus as set forth in its most recent report of conditions so published. In case at any time the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, as applicable, shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of this Section, the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, as applicable, shall resign immediately in the manner and with the effect specified in Section 9.07. SECTION 9.07. Resignation and Removal of Trustee and Securities Administrator. The Trustee and the Securities Administrator may at any time resign and be discharged from the trust hereby created by giving written notice thereof to the Depositor, to the Master Servicer, to the Securities Administrator (or the Trustee, if the Securities Administrator resigns) and to the Certificateholders. Upon receiving such notice of resignation, the Depositor shall promptly appoint a successor trustee or successor securities administrator by written instrument, in duplicate, which instrument shall be delivered to the resigning Trustee or Securities Administrator, as applicable, and to the successor trustee or successor securities administrator, as applicable. A copy of such instrument shall be delivered to the Certificateholders, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator and the Master Servicer by the Depositor. If no successor trustee or successor securities administrator shall have been so appointed and have accepted appointment within thirty (30) days after the giving of such notice of resignation, the resigning Trustee or Securities Administrator, as the case may be, may, at the expense of the Trust Fund, petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor trustee, successor securities administrator, Trustee or Securities Administrator, as applicable. If at any time the Trustee or the Securities Administrator shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of Section 9.06 and shall fail to resign after written request therefor by the Depositor, or if at any time the Trustee or the Securities Administrator shall become incapable of acting, or shall be adjudged bankrupt or insolvent, or a receiver of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator or of its property shall be appointed, or any public officer shall take charge or control of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator or of its property or affairs for the purpose of rehabilitation, conservation or liquidation, then the Depositor may remove the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, as applicable and appoint a successor trustee or successor securities administrator, as applicable, by written instrument, in duplicate, which instrument shall be delivered to the Trustee or the Securities Administrator so removed and to the successor trustee or successor securities administrator. A copy of such instrument shall be delivered to the Certificateholders, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator and the Master Servicer by the Depositor. The Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 51% of the Voting Rights may at any time remove the Trustee or the Securities Administrator and appoint a successor trustee or successor securities administrator by written instrument or instruments, in triplicate, signed by such Holders or their attorneys-in-fact duly authorized, one complete set of which instruments shall be delivered to the Depositor, one complete set to the Trustee or the Securities Administrator so removed and one complete set to the successor so appointed. A copy of such instrument shall be delivered to the Certificateholders, the Trustee (in the case of the removal of the Securities Administrator), the Securities Administrator (in the case of the removal of the Trustee) and the Master Servicer by the Depositor. Any resignation or removal of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator and appointment of a successor trustee or successor securities administrator pursuant to any of the provisions of this Section shall not become effective until acceptance of appointment by the successor trustee or successor securities administrator, as applicable, as provided in Section 9.08. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator shall at all times be the same Person. SECTION 9.08. Successor Trustee or Securities Administrator. Any successor trustee or successor securities administrator appointed as provided in Section 9.07 shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Depositor and its predecessor trustee or predecessor securities administrator an instrument accepting such appointment hereunder, and thereupon the resignation or removal of the predecessor trustee or predecessor securities administrator shall become effective and such successor trustee or successor securities administrator without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall become fully vested with all the rights, powers, duties and obligations of its predecessor hereunder, with the like effect as if originally named as trustee or securities administrator herein. The predecessor trustee or predecessor securities administrator shall deliver to the successor trustee or successor securities administrator all Mortgage Loan Documents and related documents and statements to the extent held by it hereunder, as well as all monies, held by it hereunder, and the Depositor and the predecessor trustee or predecessor securities administrator shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things as may reasonably be required for more fully and certainly vesting and confirming in the successor trustee or successor securities administrator all such rights, powers, duties and obligations. No successor trustee or successor securities administrator shall accept appointment as provided in this Section unless at the time of such acceptance such successor trustee or successor securities administrator shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 9.06 and the appointment of such successor trustee or successor securities administrator shall not result in a downgrading of any Class of Certificates by any Rating Agency, as evidenced by a letter from each Rating Agency. Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor trustee or successor securities administrator as provided in this Section, the Depositor shall mail notice of the succession of such trustee hereunder to all Holders of Certificates at their addresses as shown in the Certificate Register. If the Depositor fails to mail such notice within ten (10) days after acceptance of appointment by the successor trustee or successor securities administrator, the successor trustee or successor securities administrator shall cause such notice to be mailed at the expense of the Depositor. SECTION 9.09. Merger or Consolidation of Trustee or Securities Administrator. Any corporation or association into which the Trustee or the Securities Administrator may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated or any corporation or association resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Trustee or the Securities Administrator shall be a party, or any corporation or association succeeding to the business of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator shall be the successor of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator hereunder, provided such corporation or association shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 9.06, without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding. SECTION 9.10. Appointment of Co-Trustee or Separate Trustee. Notwithstanding any other provisions hereof, at any time, for the purpose of meeting any legal requirements of any jurisdiction in which any part of the REMIC I or property securing the same may at the time be located, the Trustee shall have the power and shall execute and deliver all instruments to appoint one or more Persons approved by the Trustee to act as co-trustee or co-trustees, jointly with the Trustee, or separate trustee or separate trustees, of all or any part of REMIC I, and to vest in such Person or Persons, in such capacity, and for the benefit of the Holders of the Certificates, such title to REMIC I, or any part thereof, and, subject to the other provisions of this Section 9.10, such powers, duties, obligations, rights and trusts as the Trustee may consider necessary or desirable. No co-trustee or separate trustee hereunder shall be required to meet the terms of eligibility as a successor trustee under Section 9.06 hereunder and no notice to Holders of Certificates of the appointment of co-trustee(s) or separate trustee(s) shall be required under Section 9.08 hereof. In the case of any appointment of a co-trustee or separate trustee pursuant to this Section 9.10 all rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Trustee shall be conferred or imposed upon and exercised or performed by the Trustee and such separate trustee or co-trustee jointly, except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed by the Trustee (whether as Trustee hereunder or as successor to a defaulting Master Servicer hereunder), the Trustee shall be incompetent or unqualified to perform such act or acts, in which event such rights, powers, duties and obligations (including the holding of title to REMIC I or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed by such separate trustee or co-trustee at the direction of the Trustee. Any notice, request or other writing given to the Trustee shall be deemed to have been given to each of the then separate trustees and co-trustees, as effectively as if given to each of them. Every instrument appointing any separate trustee or co-trustee shall refer to this Agreement and the conditions of this Article IX. Each separate trustee and co-trustee, upon its acceptance of the trust conferred, shall be vested with the estates or property specified in its instrument of appointment, either jointly with the Trustee, or separately, as may be provided therein, subject to all the provisions of this Agreement, specifically including every provision of this Agreement relating to the conduct of, affecting the liability of, or affording protection to, the Trustee. Every such instrument shall be filed with the Trustee. Any separate trustee or co-trustee may, at any time, constitute the Trustee, its agent or attorney-in-fact, with full power and authority, to the extent not prohibited by law, to do any lawful act under or in respect of this Agreement on its behalf and in its name. If any separate trustee or co-trustee shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and trusts shall vest in and be exercised by the Trustee, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor trustee or co-trustee. SECTION 9.11. Appointment of Office or Agency. The Certificates may be surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange at the Securities Administrator's office located at Sixth and Marquette, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55479, and presented for final distribution at the Corporate Trust Office of the Securities Administrator where notices and demands to or upon the Securities Administrator in respect of the Certificates and this Agreement may be served. SECTION 9.12. Representations and Warranties. The Trustee hereby represents and warrants to the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers and the Depositor as applicable, as of the Closing Date, that: (i) It is a national banking association duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the United States of America. (ii) The execution and delivery of this Agreement by it, and the performance and compliance with the terms of this Agreement by it, will not violate its articles of association or bylaws or constitute a default (or an event which, with notice or lapse of time, or both, would constitute a default) under, or result in the breach of, any material agreement or other instrument to which it is a party or which is applicable to it or any of its assets. (iii) It has the full power and authority to enter into and consummate all transactions contemplated by this Agreement, has duly authorized the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement, and has duly executed and delivered this Agreement. (iv) This Agreement, assuming due authorization, execution and delivery by the other parties hereto, constitutes a valid, legal and binding obligation of it, enforceable against it in accordance with the terms hereof, subject to (A) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, reorganization, moratorium and other laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights generally, and (B) general principles of equity, regardless of whether such enforcement is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law. (v) It is not in violation of, and its execution and delivery of this Agreement and its performance and compliance with the terms of this Agreement will not constitute a violation of, any law, any order or decree of any court or arbiter, or any order, regulation or demand of any federal, state or local governmental or regulatory authority, which violation, in its good faith and reasonable judgment, is likely to affect materially and adversely either the ability of it to perform its obligations under this Agreement or its financial condition. (vi) No litigation is pending or, to the best of its knowledge, threatened against it, which would prohibit it from entering into this Agreement or, in its good faith reasonable judgment, is likely to materially and adversely affect either the ability of it to perform its obligations under this Agreement or its financial condition.

Kennedy, the late ambassador of the United States to the Court of St. James, living on the date hereof and (ii) the Last Scheduled Distribution Date. The purchase by the Terminator of all Mortgage Loans and each REO Property remaining in REMIC I shall be at a price (the "Termination Price") equal to the sum of (i) the greater of (A) the aggregate Purchase Price of all the Mortgage Loans included in REMIC I, plus the appraised value of each REO Property, if any, included in REMIC I, such appraisal to be conducted by an appraiser mutually agreed upon by the Master Servicer and the Trustee in their reasonable discretion and (B) the aggregate fair market value of all of the assets of REMIC I (as determined by the Master Servicer and the Trustee, as of the close of business on the third Business Day next preceding the date upon which notice of any such termination is furnished to Certificateholders pursuant to the third paragraph of this Section 10.01) plus (ii) any amounts due the Servicer and the Master Servicer in respect of unpaid Servicing Fees and outstanding P&I Advances and Servicing Advances. (b) The Master Servicer or, if the Master Servicer fails to exercise such optional termination right, the first of either Countrywide, Saxon or Ocwen to fulfill the requirements set forth in this paragraph (either the Master Servicer, Countrywide, Saxon or Ocwen, the "Terminator") shall have the right to purchase all of the Mortgage Loans and each REO Property remaining in REMIC I pursuant to clause (i) of the preceding paragraph no later than the Determination Date in the month immediately preceding the Distribution Date on which the Certificates will be retired; provided, however, that the Terminator may elect to purchase all of the Mortgage Loans and each REO Property remaining in REMIC I pursuant to clause (i) above only if the aggregate Scheduled Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans and each REO Property remaining in the Trust Fund at the time of such election is reduced to less than or equal to 10% of the sum of the aggregate Scheduled Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date plus the Original Pre-Funded Amount.

(d) Upon presentation of the Certificates by the Certificateholders on the final Distribution Date, the Securities Administrator shall distribute to each Certificateholder so presenting and surrendering its Certificates the amount otherwise distributable on such Distribution Date in accordance with Section 5.01 in respect of the Certificates so presented and surrendered. Any funds not distributed to any Holder or Holders of Certificates being retired on such Distribution Date because of the failure of such Holder or Holders to tender their Certificates shall, on such date, be set aside and held in trust and credited to the account of the appropriate non-tendering Holder or Holders. If any Certificates as to which notice has been given pursuant to this Section 10.01 shall not have been surrendered for cancellation within six months after the time specified in such notice, the Securities Administrator shall mail a second notice to the remaining non-tendering Certificateholders to surrender their Certificates for cancellation in order to receive the final distribution with respect thereto. If within one year after the second notice all such Certificates shall not have been surrendered for cancellation, the Securities Administrator shall, directly or through an agent, mail a final notice to the remaining non-tendering Certificateholders concerning surrender of their Certificates. The costs and expenses of maintaining the funds in trust and of contacting such Certificateholders shall be paid out of the assets remaining in the trust funds. If within one (1) year after the final notice any such Certificates shall not have been surrendered for cancellation, the Securities Administrator shall pay to the Depositor all such amounts, and all rights of non-tendering Certificateholders in or to such amounts shall thereupon cease. No interest shall accrue or be payable to any Certificateholder on any amount held in trust by the Securities Administrator as a result of such Certificateholder's failure to surrender its Certificate(s) on the final Distribution Date for final payment thereof in accordance with this Section 10.01. Any such amounts held in trust by the Securities Administrator shall be held uninvested in an Eligible Account. SECTION 10.02. Additional Termination Requirements.

ARTICLE XI REMIC PROVISIONS SECTION 11.01. REMIC Administration. (a) The Trustee shall elect to treat each Trust REMIC as a REMIC under the Code and, if necessary, under applicable state law. Each such election will be made by the Securities Administrator on Form 1066 or other appropriate federal tax or information return or any appropriate state return for the taxable year ending on the last day of the calendar year in which the Certificates are issued. For the purposes of the REMIC election in respect of REMIC I, the REMIC I Regular Interests shall be designated as the Regular Interests in REMIC I and the Class R-I Interest shall be designated as the Residual Interests in REMIC I. For the purposes of the REMIC election in respect of REMIC II, the REMIC II Regular Interests shall be designated as the Regular Interests in REMIC II and the Class R-II Interest shall be designated as the Residual Interests in REMIC II. The Class A Certificates, the Mezzanine Certificates, the Class B Certificates, the Class P Certificates, the Class CE-1 Certificates and the Class CE-2 Certificates (exclusive of any right to receive payments from the Reserve Fund) shall be designated as the Regular Interests in REMIC III and the Class R-III Interest shall be designated as the Residual Interests in REMIC III. The Trustee shall not permit the creation of any "interests" in each Trust REMIC (within the meaning of Section 860G of the Code) other than the REMIC I Regular Interests, the REMIC II Regular Interests and the interests represented by the Certificates. (b) The Closing Date is hereby designated as the "Startup Day" of each Trust REMIC within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(9) of the Code. (c) The Securities Administrator shall be reimbursed for any and all expenses relating to any tax audit of the Trust Fund (including, but not limited to, any professional fees or any administrative or judicial proceedings with respect to each Trust REMIC that involve the Internal Revenue Service or state tax authorities), including the expense of obtaining any tax related Opinion of Counsel except as specified herein. The Securities Administrator, as agent for each Trust REMIC's tax matters person shall (i) act on behalf of the Trust Fund in relation to any tax matter or controversy involving any Trust REMIC and (ii) represent the Trust Fund in any administrative or judicial proceeding relating to an examination or audit by any governmental taxing authority with respect thereto. The holder of the largest Percentage Interest of each Class of Residual Certificates shall be designated, in the manner provided under Treasury regulations section 1.860F-4(d) and Treasury regulations section 301.6231(a)(7)-1, as the tax matters person of the related REMIC created hereunder. By their acceptance thereof, the holder of the largest Percentage Interest of the Residual Certificates hereby agrees to irrevocably appoint the Securities Administrator or an Affiliate as its agent to perform all of the duties of the tax matters person for the Trust Fund. (d) The Securities Administrator shall prepare and file and the Trustee shall sign all of the Tax Returns in respect of each REMIC created hereunder. The expenses of preparing and filing such returns shall be borne by the Securities Administrator without any right of reimbursement therefor. (e) The Securities Administrator shall perform on behalf of each Trust REMIC all reporting and other tax compliance duties that are the responsibility of such REMIC under the Code, the REMIC Provisions or other compliance guidance issued by the Internal Revenue Service or any state or local taxing authority. Among its other duties, as required by the Code, the REMIC Provisions or other such compliance guidance, the Securities Administrator shall provide (i) to any Transferor of a Residual Certificate such information as is necessary for the application of any tax relating to the transfer of a Residual Certificate to any Person who is not a Permitted Transferee upon receipt of additional reasonable compensation, (ii) to the Certificateholders such information or reports as are required by the Code or the REMIC Provisions including reports relating to interest, original issue discount and market discount or premium (using the Prepayment Assumption as required) and (iii) to the Internal Revenue Service the name, title, address and telephone number of the person who will serve as the representative of each Trust REMIC. The Depositor shall provide or cause to be provided to the Securities Administrator, within ten (10) days after the Closing Date, all information or data that the Securities Administrator reasonably determines to be relevant for tax purposes as to the valuations and issue prices of the Certificates, including, without limitation, the price, yield, prepayment assumption and projected cash flow of the Certificates. (f) To the extent in the control of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator, each such Person (i) shall take such action and shall cause each REMIC created hereunder to take such action as shall be necessary to create or maintain the status thereof as a REMIC under the REMIC Provisions, (ii) shall not take any action, cause the Trust Fund to take any action or fail to take (or fail to cause to be taken) any action that, under the REMIC Provisions, if taken or not taken, as the case may be, could (A) endanger the status of each Trust REMIC as a REMIC or (B) result in the imposition of a tax upon the Trust Fund (including but not limited to the tax on prohibited transactions as defined in Section 860F(a)(2) of the Code and the tax on contributions to a REMIC set forth in Section 860G(d) of the Code) (either such event, an "Adverse REMIC Event") unless such action or inaction is permitted under this Agreement or the Trustee and the Securities Administrator have received an Opinion of Counsel, addressed to the them (at the expense of the party seeking to take such action but in no event at the expense of the Trustee or the Securities Administrator) to the effect that the contemplated action will not, with respect to any Trust REMIC, endanger such status or result in the imposition of such a tax, nor (iii) shall the Securities Administrator take or fail to take any action (whether or not authorized hereunder) as to which the Trustee has advised it in writing that it has received an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that an Adverse REMIC Event could occur with respect to such action; provided that the Securities Administrator may conclusively rely on such Opinion of Counsel and shall incur no liability for its action or failure to act in accordance with such Opinion of Counsel. In addition, prior to taking any action with respect to any Trust REMIC or the respective assets of each, or causing any Trust REMIC to take any action, which is not contemplated under the terms of this Agreement, the Securities Administrator will consult with the Trustee or its designee, in writing, with respect to whether such action could cause an Adverse REMIC Event to occur with respect to any Trust REMIC, and the Securities Administrator shall not take any such action or cause any Trust REMIC to take any such action as to which the Trustee has advised it in writing that an Adverse REMIC Event could occur. The Trustee may consult with counsel to make such written advice, and the cost of same shall be home by the party seeking to take the action not permitted by this Agreement, but in no event shall such cost be an expense of the Trustee. (g) In the event that any tax is imposed on "prohibited transactions" of any REMIC created hereunder as defined in Section 860F(a)(2) of the Code, on the "net income from foreclosure property" of such REMIC as defined in Section 860G(c) of the Code, on any contributions to any such REMIC after the Startup Day therefor pursuant to Section 860G(d) of the Code, or any other tax is imposed by the Code or any applicable provisions of state or local tax laws, such tax shall be charged (i) to the Trustee pursuant to Section 11.03, if such tax arises out of or results from a breach by the Trustee of any of its obligations under this Article XI, (ii) to the Securities Administrator pursuant to Section 11.03, if such tax arises out of or results from a breach by the Securities Administrator of any of its obligations under this Article XI, (iii) to the Master Servicer pursuant to Section 11.03, if such tax arises out of or results from a breach by the Master Servicer of any of its obligations under Article IV or under this Article XI, (iv) to the related Servicer pursuant to Section 11.03, if such tax arises out of or results from a breach by such Servicer of any of its obligations under Article III or under this Article XI, or (v) in all other cases, against amounts on deposit in the Distribution Account and shall be paid by withdrawal therefrom. (h) The Securities Administrator shall, for federal income tax purposes, maintain books and records with respect to each Trust REMIC on a calendar year and on an accrual basis. (i) Following the Startup Day, neither the Securities Administrator nor the Trustee shall accept any contributions of assets to any Trust REMIC other than in connection with any Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan delivered in accordance with Section 2.03 unless it shall have received an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that the inclusion of such assets in the Trust Fund will not cause the related REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any Certificates are outstanding or subject such REMIC to any tax under the REMIC Provisions or other applicable provisions of federal, state and local law or ordinances. (j) Neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator shall knowingly enter into any arrangement by which any Trust REMIC will receive a fee or other compensation for services nor permit either REMIC to receive any income from assets other than "qualified mortgages" as defined in Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code or "permitted investments" as defined in Section 860G(a)(5) of the Code. (k) The Securities Administrator shall apply for an employer identification number with the Internal Revenue Service via a Form SS-4 or other comparable method for each REMIC. In connection with the foregoing, the Securities Administrator shall provide the name and address of the person who can be contacted to obtain information required to be reported to the holders of Regular Interests in each REMIC as required by IRS Form 8811. SECTION 11.02. Prohibited Transactions and Activities.

No amendment shall be deemed to adversely affect in any material respect the interests of any Certificateholder who shall have consented thereto, and no Opinion of Counsel shall be required to address the effect of any such amendment on any such consenting Certificateholder. This Agreement may also be amended from time to time by the Depositor, each Servicer, the Master Servicer, the Securities Administrator and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 66% of the Voting Rights for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions of this Agreement or of modifying in any manner the rights of the Holders of Certificates; provided, however, that no such amendment shall (i) reduce in any manner the amount of, or delay the timing of, payments received on Mortgage Loans which are required to be distributed on any Certificate without the consent of the Holder of such Certificate, (ii) adversely affect in any material respect the interests of the Holders of any Class of Certificates in a manner, other than as described in (i), without the consent of the Holders of Certificates of such Class evidencing at least 66% of the Voting Rights allocated to such Class, or (iii) modify the consents required by the immediately preceding clauses (i) and (ii) without the consent of the Holders of all Certificates then outstanding.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any amendment to this Agreement required in connection with the compliance with or the clarification of any reporting obligations described in Section 5.06 hereof shall not require the consent of any Certificateholder and without the need for any Opinion of Counsel or Rating Agency confirmation. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of this Agreement, the Trustee shall not consent to any amendment to this Agreement unless it shall have first received an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such amendment is permitted hereunder and will not result in the imposition of any tax on any Trust REMIC pursuant to the REMIC Provisions or cause any Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any Certificates are outstanding and that such amendment is authorized or permitted by this Agreement. Promptly after the execution of any such amendment the Trustee shall furnish a copy of such amendment to each Certificateholder. It shall not be necessary for the consent of Certificateholders under this Section 12.01 to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment, but it shall be sufficient if such consent shall approve the substance thereof.

Accordingly, the Depositor hereby grants to the Trustee, on behalf of the Trust and for the benefit of the Certificateholders, a security interest in the Mortgage Loans and all other property described in clause (2) of the preceding sentence, for the purpose of securing to the Trustee the performance by the Depositor of the obligations described in clause (3) of the preceding sentence.

As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the transfer of this Certificate is registrable in the Certificate Register upon surrender of this Certificate for registration of transfer at the offices or agencies appointed by the Securities Administrator as provided in the Agreement, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by an assignment in the form below or other written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Securities Administrator duly executed by, the Holder hereof or such Holder's attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Certificates of the same Class in authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate Percentage Interest will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees. The Certificates are issuable in fully registered form only without coupons in Classes and denominations representing Percentage Interests specified in the Agreement. As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the Certificates are exchangeable for new Certificates of the same Class in authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate Percentage Interest, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same. No service charge will be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange of Certificates, but the Securities Administrator may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any transfer or exchange of Certificates. The Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers and any agent of the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator or the Servicers may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary. The obligations created by the Agreement and the Trust Fund created thereby shall terminate upon payment to the Certificateholders of all amounts held by the Securities Administrator and required to be paid to them pursuant to the Agreement following the earlier of (i) the final payment or other liquidation (or any advance with respect thereto) of the last Mortgage Loan remaining in REMIC I and (ii) the purchase by the party designated in the Agreement at a price determined as provided in the Agreement from REMIC I of all the Mortgage Loans and all property acquired in respect of such Mortgage Loans. The Agreement permits, but does not require, the party designated in the Agreement to purchase from REMIC I all the Mortgage Loans and all property acquired in respect of any Mortgage Loan at a price determined as provided in the Agreement. The exercise of such right will effect early retirement of the Certificates; however, such right to purchase is subject to the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans at the time of purchase being less than or equal to 10% of the aggregate principal balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date (which includes the Identified Subsequent Mortgage Loans). The recitals contained herein shall be taken as statements of the Depositor and neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator assumes any responsibility for their correctness. Unless the certificate of authentication hereon has been executed by the Securities Administrator, by manual signature, this Certificate shall not be entitled to any benefit under the Agreement or be valid for any purpose.

The Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers and any agent of the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator or the Servicers may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary. The obligations created by the Agreement and the Trust Fund created thereby shall terminate upon payment to the Certificateholders of all amounts held by the Securities Administrator and required to be paid to them pursuant to the Agreement following the earlier of (i) the final payment or other liquidation (or any advance with respect thereto) of the last Mortgage Loan remaining in REMIC I and (ii) the purchase by the party designated in the Agreement at a price determined as provided in the Agreement from REMIC I of all the Mortgage Loans and all property acquired in respect of such Mortgage Loans. The Agreement permits, but does not require, the party designated in the Agreement to purchase from REMIC I all the Mortgage Loans and all property acquired in respect of any Mortgage Loan at a price determined as provided in the Agreement. The exercise of such right will effect early retirement of the Certificates; however, such right to purchase is subject to the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans at the time of purchase being less than or equal to 10% of the aggregate principal balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date (which includes the Identified Subsequent Mortgage Loans). The recitals contained herein shall be taken as statements of the Depositor and neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator assume any responsibility for their correctness.

The Agreement permits, with certain exceptions therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers and the rights of the Certificateholders under the Agreement at any time by the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator and the Servicers with the consent of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 66% of the Voting Rights.

The Agreement also permits the amendment thereof, in certain limited circumstances, without the consent of the Holders of any of the Certificates. As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the transfer of this Certificate is registrable in the Certificate Register upon surrender of this Certificate for registration of transfer at the offices or agencies appointed by the Securities Administrator as provided in the Agreement, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by an assignment in the form below or other written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Securities Administrator duly executed by, the Holder hereof or such Holder's attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Certificates of the same Class in authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate Percentage Interest will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees. The Certificates are issuable in fully registered form only without coupons in Classes and denominations representing Percentage Interests specified in the Agreement. As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Certificates are exchangeable for new Certificates of the same Class in authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate Percentage Interest, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same. No transfer of this Certificate shall be made unless the transfer is made pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act"), and an effective registration or qualification under applicable state securities laws, or is made in a transaction that does not require such registration or qualification. In the event that such a transfer of this Certificate is to be made without registration or qualification, the Securities Administrator shall require receipt of (i) if such transfer is purportedly being made in reliance upon Rule 144A under the 1933 Act, written certifications from the Holder of the Certificate desiring to effect the transfer, and from such Holder's prospective transferee, substantially in the forms attached to the Agreement as Exhibit B-1, and (ii) in all other cases, an Opinion of Counsel satisfactory to it that such transfer may be made without such registration or qualification (which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Trust Fund or of the Depositor, the Trustee, the Master Servicer or the Securities Administrator in their respective capacities as such), together with copies of the written certification(s) of the Holder of the Certificate desiring to effect the transfer and/or such Holder's prospective transferee upon which such Opinion of Counsel is based. None of the Depositor, the Trustee or the Securities Administrator is obligated to register or qualify the Class of Certificates specified on the face hereof under the 1933 Act or any other securities law or to take any action not otherwise required under the Agreement to permit the transfer of such Certificates without registration or qualification. Any Holder desiring to effect a transfer of this Certificate shall be required to indemnify the Trustee, the Depositor, the Master Servicer and the Securities Administrator against any liability that may result if the transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with such federal and state laws. No transfer of this Certificate to a Plan subject to ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code, any Person acting, directly or indirectly, on behalf of any such Plan or any Person using "Plan Assets" to acquire this Certificate shall be made except in accordance with Section 6.02 of the Agreement. Prior to registration of any transfer, sale or other disposition of this Certificate, the proposed transferee shall provide to the Securities Administrator (i) an affidavit to the effect that such transferee is any Person other than a Disqualified Organization or the agent (including a broker, nominee or middleman) of a Disqualified Organization, and (ii) a certificate that acknowledges that (A) the Class R Certificates have been designated as representing the beneficial ownership of the residual interests in each of REMIC I and REMIC II, (B) it will include in its income a PRO RATA share of the net income of the Trust Fund and that such income may be an "excess inclusion," as defined in the Code, that, with certain exceptions, cannot be offset by other losses or benefits from any tax exemption, and (C) it expects to have the financial means to satisfy all of its tax obligations including those relating to holding the Class R Certificates. Notwithstanding the registration in the Certificate Register of any transfer, sale or other disposition of this Certificate to a Disqualified Organization or an agent (including a broker, nominee or middleman) of a Disqualified Organization, such registration shall be deemed to be of no legal force or effect whatsoever and such Person shall not be deemed to be a Certificateholder for any purpose, including, but not limited to, the receipt of distributions in respect of this Certificate. The Holder of this Certificate, by its acceptance hereof, shall be deemed to have consented to the provisions of Section 6.02 of the Agreement and to any amendment of the Agreement deemed necessary by counsel of the Depositor to ensure that the transfer of this Certificate to any Person other than a Permitted Transferee or any other Person will not cause any portion of the Trust Fund to cease to qualify as a REMIC or cause the imposition of a tax upon any REMIC. No service charge will be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange of Certificates, but the Securities Administrator may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any transfer or exchange of Certificates. The Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers and any agent of the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator or the Servicers may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Depositor, the Master Servicer, the Trustee, the Securities Administrator, the Servicers nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary. The obligations created by the Agreement and the Trust Fund created thereby shall terminate upon payment to the Certificateholders of all amounts held by the Securities Administrator and required to be paid to them pursuant to the Agreement following the earlier of (i) the final payment or other liquidation (or any advance with respect thereto) of the last Mortgage Loan remaining in REMIC I and (ii) the purchase by the party designated in the Agreement at a price determined as provided in the Agreement from REMIC I of all the Mortgage Loans and all property acquired in respect of such Mortgage Loans. The Agreement permits, but does not require, the party designated in the Agreement to purchase from REMIC I all the Mortgage Loans and all property acquired in respect of any Mortgage Loan at a price determined as provided in the Agreement. The exercise of such right will effect early retirement of the Certificates; however, such right to purchase is subject to the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans at the time of purchase being less than or equal to 10% of the aggregate principal balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date (which includes the Identified Subsequent Mortgage Loans). The recitals contained herein shall be taken as statements of the Depositor and neither the Trustee nor the Securities Administrator assume any responsibility for their correctness. Unless the certificate of authentication hereon has been executed by the Securities Administrator, by manual signature, this Certificate shall not be entitled to any benefit under the Agreement or be valid for any purpose.
