(v) the original or copies of each assumption, modification or substitution agreement, if any; and (vi) the original lender's title insurance policy or certified copy thereof or, if the original title policy has not been issued, the irrevocable commitment to issue the same. With respect to a maximum of approximately 2.0% of the Original Mortgage Loans by outstanding Stated Principal Balance of the Original Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date, if any original Mortgage Note referred to in Section 2.01(i) above cannot be located, the obligations of the Depositor to deliver such documents shall be deemed to be satisfied upon delivery to the Trustee of a photocopy of such Mortgage Note, if available, with a lost note affidavit substantially in the form of Exhibit H attached hereto.

The Depositor shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Trustee promptly upon receipt thereof any other original documents constituting a part of a Mortgage File received with respect to any Mortgage Loan, including, but not limited to, any original documents evidencing an assumption or modification of any Mortgage Loan. The Trustee shall enforce the obligations of the Seller under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement to promptly (within sixty Business Days following the later of the Closing Date and the date of receipt by the Trustee of the recording information for a Mortgage, but in no event later than ninety days following the Closing Date) submit or cause to be submitted for recording, at the expense of the Responsible Party and at no expense to the Trust Fund, the Trustee or the Depositor, in the appropriate public office for real property records, each Assignment referred to in Sections 2.01(iii) and (iv) above and the Depositor shall execute each original Assignment or cause each original Assignment to be executed in the following form: "Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as Trustee under the applicable agreement."

EX-10.159th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 59th
cured such defect, as the case may be, and thereafter cause each such Assignment to be duly recorded. If the Responsible Party is unable to pay the cost of recording the Assignments, such expense will be paid by the Trustee and shall be reimbursable to the Trustee as an Extraordinary Trust Fund Expense. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Trustee shall not be responsible for determining whether any Assignment delivered by the Depositor hereunder is in recordable form. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, for administrative convenience and facilitation of servicing and to reduce closing costs, the Assignments shall not be required to be submitted for recording (except with respect to any Mortgage Loan located in Maryland) unless the Trustee or the Depositor receives written notice that failure to record would result in a withdrawal or a downgrading by any Rating Agency of the rating on any Class of Certificates; provided, however, the Trustee shall enforce the obligations of the Seller under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement to submit or cause to be submitted each Assignment for recording in the manner described above, at no expense to the Trust Fund or the Trustee, upon the earliest to occur of: (i) reasonable direction by Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 25% of the Voting Rights, (ii) the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Default, (iii) the occurrence of a bankruptcy, insolvency or foreclosure relating to the Servicer, (iv) the occurrence of a servicing transfer as described in Section 7.02 hereof, (v) with respect to any one Assignment, the occurrence of a bankruptcy, insolvency or foreclosure relating to the Mortgagor under the related Mortgage and (vi) any Mortgage Loan that is 90 days or more delinquent. Upon receipt of written notice by the Trustee from the Servicer that recording of the Assignments is required pursuant to one or more of the conditions set forth in the preceding sentence, the Depositor shall be required to deliver such Assignments or shall cause such Assignments to be delivered within 30 days following receipt of such notice. All original documents relating to the Mortgage Loans that are not delivered to the Trustee are and shall be held by or on behalf of the Seller, the Depositor or the Servicer, as the case may be, in trust for the benefit of the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders. In the event that any such original document is required pursuant to the terms of this Section 2.01 to be a part of a Mortgage File, such document shall be delivered promptly to the Trustee. Any such original document delivered to or held by the Depositor that is not required pursuant to the terms of this Section to be a part of a Mortgage File, shall be delivered promptly to the Servicer. The parties hereto understand and agree that it is not intended that any Mortgage Loans be included in the Trust that are (a) "high cost" loans under the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act of 1994 or (b) "high cost," "threshold," "covered" or "predatory" loans under any other applicable federal, state or local law (including without limitation any regulation or ordinance) (or a similarly classified loan using different terminology under a law imposing heightened regulatory scrutiny or additional legal liability for residential mortgage loans having high interest rates, points and/or fees). SECTION 2.02 Acceptance of REMIC I by Trustee. The Trustee acknowledges receipt subject to the provisions of Section 2.01 above and subject to any exceptions noted on the exception report described in the next paragraph below, of the documents referred to in Section 2.01 (other than such documents described in Section 2.01(v)) and all other assets included in the 52

definition of"REMIC I" under clauses (i), (iii), (iv) and (v) (to the extent of amounts attributable thereto deposited into the Certificate Account) and declares that it holds and will hold such documents and the other documents delivered to it constituting a Mortgage File, and that it holds or will hold all such assets and such other assets included in the definition of "REMIC I" in trust for the exclusive use and benefit of all present and future Certificateholders. The Trustee, for the benefit of the Certificateholders, shall review each Mortgage File on or before the Closing Date, and the Trustee shall certify in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit C-1 that, as to each Mortgage Loan listed in the Mortgage Loan Schedule (other than any Mortgage Loan paid in full or any Mortgage Loan specifically identified in the exception report annexed thereto as not being covered by such certification), (i) all documents constituting part of such Mortgage File (other than such documents described in Section 2.01(v)) required to be delivered to it pursuant to this Agreement are in its possession, (ii) such documents have been reviewed by the Trustee and appear regular on their face and relate to such Mortgage Loan and (iii) based on the Trustee's examination and only as to the foregoing, the information set forth in the Mortgage Loan Schedule that corresponds to items (i), (ii), (iii), (xii), (xiii) and (xvi) of the definition of "Mortgage Loan Schedule" accurately reflects information set forth in the Mortgage File. It is herein acknowledged that, in conducting such review, the Trustee is under no duty or obligation (i) to inspect, review or examine any such documents, instruments, certificates or other papers to determine whether they are genuine, enforceable, valid, legally binding, effective or appropriate for the represented purpose or whether they have actually been recorded or are in recordable form or that they are other than what they purport to be on their face, (ii) to determine whether any Mortgage File should include any of the documents specified in clause (v) of Section 2.01 or (iii) to determine the perfection or priority of any security interest in any such documents or instruments. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in conducting the review described in this Section 2.02, the Trustee shall not be responsible for determining (i) if an Assignment is sufficient under the laws of the jurisdiction wherein the related Mortgaged Property is located to reflect of record the sale of the Mortgage or (ii) if a Mortgage creates a first or second lien on, or first or second priority security interest in, a Mortgaged Property. Prior to the first anniversary date of this Agreement, the Trustee shall deliver to the Depositor and the Servicer a final certification in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C-2 evidencing the completeness of the Mortgage Files, with any applicable exceptions noted thereon, and the Servicer shall forward a copy thereof to any Sub-Servicer. If in the process of reviewing the Mortgage Files and making or preparing, as the case may be, the certifications referred to above, the Trustee finds any document or documents constituting a part of a Mortgage File to be missing or defective in any material respect, at the conclusion of its review the Trustee shall so notify the Depositor and the Servicer. In addition, upon the discovery by the Depositor, the Servicer or the Trustee of a breach of any of the representations and warranties made by either the Responsible Party or the Seller in the related Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement in respect of any Mortgage Loan which materially adversely affects such Mortgage Loan or the interests of the Certificateholders in such Mortgage Loan, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice to the other parties. 53
EX-10.161st Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 61st
The Trustee shall, at the written request and expense of any Certificateholder, forward a written report to such Certificateholder of all Mortgage Files released to the Servicer for servicing purposes. The Depositor and the Trustee intend that the assignment and transfer herein contemplated is absolute and constitutes a sale of the Mortgage Loans, the related Mortgage Notes and the related documents, conveying good title thereto free and clear of any liens and encumbrances, from the Depositor to the Trustee in trust for the benefit of the Certificateholders and that such property not be part of the Depositor's estate or property of the Depositor in the event of any insolvency by the Depositor. In the event that such conveyance is deemed to be, or to be made as security for, a loan, the parties intend that the Depositor shall be deemed to have granted and does hereby grant to the Trustee a first priority perfected security interest in all of the Depositor's right, title and interest in and to the Mortgage Loans, the related Mortgage Notes and the related documents, and that this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law. SECTION 2.03 Repurchase or Substitution of Mortgage Loans by the Responsible Party and the Seller. (a) Upon discovery or receipt of notice of any materially defective document in, or that a document is missing from, a Mortgage File or of the breach by the Responsible Party or the Seller of any representation, warranty or covenant under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement in respect of any Mortgage Loan that materially adversely affects the value of such Mortgage Loan or the interest therein of the Certificateholders, the Trustee shall promptly notify the Seller, the Responsible Party and the Servicer of such defect, missing document or breach and request that the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, deliver such missing document or cure such defect or breach within 60 days from the date the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, was notified of such missing document, defect or breach, and if the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, does not deliver such missing document or cure such defect or breach in all material respects during such period, the Trustee shall enforce the obligations of the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement to repurchase such Mortgage Loan from REMIC I at the Purchase Price within 90 days after the date on which the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, was notified (subject to Section 2.03(c)) of such missing document, defect or breach, if and to the extent that the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, is obligated to do so under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement. The Purchase Price for the repurchased Mortgage Loan shall be remitted to the Servicer for deposit in the Custodial Account and the Trustee, upon receipt of written certification from the Servicer of such deposit, shall release to the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, the related Mortgage File and the Trustee shall execute and deliver such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, as the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, shall furnish to it and as shall be necessary to vest in the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, any Mortgage Loan released pursuant hereto. The Trustee shall not have any further responsibility with regard to such Mortgage File. In lieu of repurchasing any such Mortgage Loan as provided above, if so provided in the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement, the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, may cause such Mortgage Loan to be removed from REMIC I (in which case it shall become a Deleted Mortgage Loan) and substitute one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans in the manner and subject to the limitations set forth in Section 2.03(b); provided, however, the 54
EX-10.162nd Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 62nd
Responsible Party may not substitute a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan for any Deleted Mortgage Loan that violates any predatory or abusive lending law. It is understood and agreed that the obligation of the Responsible Party and the Seller to cure or to repurchase (or to substitute for) any Mortgage Loan as to which a document is missing, a material defect in a constituent document exists or as to which such a breach has occurred and is continuing shall constitute the sole remedy respecting such omission, defect or breach available to the Trustee and the Certificateholders. (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 Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, substitutes a Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, such substitution shall be effected by the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, delivering to 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 2.01, 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 Trustee shall acknowledge receipt for such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans and, within ten Business Days thereafter, shall review such documents as specified in Section 2.02 and deliver to the Depositor and the Servicer, with respect to such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans, a certification substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C-1, with any applicable exceptions noted thereon. Within one year of the date of substitution, the Trustee shall deliver to the Depositor and the Servicer a certification substantially in the form of Exhibit C-2 attached hereto 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 Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable. 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 Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, 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. Upon such substitution, such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans shall constitute part of the Mortgage Pool 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 in the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement. For any month in which the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, substitutes one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for one or more Deleted Mortgage Loans, the Servicer will determine the amount (the "Substitution Shortfall Amount"), if any, by which the 55
EX-10.163rd Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 63rd
aggregate Purchase Price of all such Deleted Mortgage Loans exceeds the aggregate of, as to each such Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan, the Stated Principal Balance thereof as of the date of substitution, together with one month's interest on such Stated Principal Balance at the applicable Expense Adjusted Mortgage Rate, plus all outstanding Advances and Servicing Advances (including Nonrecoverable Advances and Nonrecoverable Servicing Advances) related thereto. On the date of such substitution, the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, will deliver or cause to be delivered to the Servicer for deposit in the Custodial Account an amount equal to the Substitution Shortfall Amount, if any, and upon receipt by the Trustee of the related Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loan or Loans and certification by the Servicer to the Trustee of such deposit, the Trustee shall release to the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, the related Mortgage File or Files and the Trustee shall execute and deliver such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, shall deliver to it and as shall be necessary to vest therein any Deleted Mortgage Loan released pursuant hereto. In addition, the Responsible Party or the Seller, as applicable, 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 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 Business Days give written notice thereof to the other parties. In connection therewith, the Responsible Party shall repurchase or, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 2.03(b), substitute one or more Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans for the affected Mortgage Loan within 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 Responsible Party or the Seller, as the case may be, 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 Responsible Party or the Seller, as the case may be, under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement, or (ii) the Depositor, if the affected Mortgage Loan's status as a non-qualified mortgage is a breach of no 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 Responsible Party 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. SECTION 2.04 [Reserved]. SECTION 2.05 Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Servicer. The Servicer hereby represents, warrants and covenants to the Trustee, for the benefit of the Certificateholders and to the Depositor that as of the Closing Date or as of such date specifically provided herein: 56

Notwithstanding the foregoing, within 90 days of the earlier of discovery by the Servicer or receipt of notice by the Servicer of the breach of the representation or covenant of the Servicer set forth in Section 2.05(ix) above, which breach materially and adversely affects the interests of the Holders of the Class P Certificates in any Prepayment Charge, the Servicer shall pay the amount of such waived Prepayment Charge, for the benefit of the Holders of the Class P Certificates, by depositing such amount into the Custodial Account.

The interests evidenced by the Class R-I Interest, together with the REMIC I Regular Interests, constitute the entire beneficial ownership interest in REMIC I. The rights of the Class R-I Interest and REMIC II (as holder of the REMIC I Regular Interest) to receive distributions from the proceeds of REMIC I in respect of the Class R-I Interest and the REMIC I Regular Interests, and all ownership interests evidenced or constituted by the Class R-I Interest and the REMIC I Regular Interests, shall be as set forth in this Agreement.

ARTICLE III ADMINISTRATION AND SERVICING OF THE MORTGAGE LOANS SECTION 3.01 Servicer to Act as Servicer. The Servicer 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 Servicer in its reasonable judgment) in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the respective Mortgage Loans 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, and in accordance with customary and usual standards of practice of mortgage lenders and loan servicers administering similar mortgage loans but without regard to: (i) any relationship that the Servicer, any Sub-Servicer or any Affiliate of the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer may have with the related Mortgagor; (ii) the ownership or non-ownership of any Certificate by the Servicer or any Affiliate of the Servicer; (iii) the Servicer's obligation to make Advances or Servicing Advances; or (iv) the Servicer's or any Sub-Servicer's right to receive compensation for its services hereunder or with respect to any particular transaction. To the extent consistent with the foregoing, the Servicer (a) shall seek to maximize the timely and complete recovery of principal and interest on the Mortgage Notes and (b) 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 (ii) such waiver would, in the reasonable judgment of the 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 or (iii) collection of the related Prepayment Charge would violate applicable law. If a Prepayment Charge is waived as permitted by meeting both of the standards described in clauses (i) and (ii) above, then the Servicer is required to pay the amount of such waived Prepayment Charge, for the benefit of the Holders of the Class P Certificates, by depositing such amount into the Custodial Account together with and at the time that the amount prepaid on the related Mortgage Loan is required to be deposited into the Custodial Account. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, any payments made by the Servicer in respect of any waived Prepayment Charges pursuant to clauses (i) and (ii) shall be deemed to be paid outside of the Trust Fund. Subject only to the above-described servicing standards and the terms of this Agreement and of the respective Mortgage Loans, the Servicer shall have full power and authority, acting alone or through Sub-Servicers as provided in Section 3.02, 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. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer in its own name or in the 60
EX-10.168th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 68th
name of a Sub-Servicer is hereby authorized and empowered by the Trustee when the Servicer believes it appropriate in its best judgment, for the benefit of the Certificateholders, in accordance with the servicing standards set forth above, 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, and all other comparable instruments, with respect to the Mortgage Loans and the 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 and Certificateholders. The Servicer shall service and administer the 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. The 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 3.17, the Trustee shall execute, at the written request of the Servicer, and furnish to the Servicer and any Sub-Servicer any special or limited powers of attorney and other documents necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer to carry out their servicing and administrative duties hereunder and the Trustee shall not be liable for the actions of the Servicer or any Sub-Servicers under such powers of attorney. Subject to Section 3.09 hereof, in accordance with the standards of the preceding paragraph, the Servicer shall advance or cause to be advanced funds as necessary for the purpose of effecting the timely payment of taxes and assessments on the Mortgaged Properties, which advances shall be Servicing Advances reimbursable in the first instance from related collections from the Mortgagors pursuant to Section 3.09, and further as provided in Section 3.11. Any cost incurred by the Servicer or by Sub-Servicers in effecting the timely payment of taxes and assessments on a Mortgaged Property 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. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Servicer may not make any future advances with respect to a Mortgage Loan (except as provided in Section 4.03) and the Servicer shall not (i) permit any modification with respect to any 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 Mortgage Loan (unless, as provided in Section 3.07, the Mortgagor is in default with respect to the Mortgage Loan or such default is, in the judgment of the Servicer, reasonably foreseeable) or (ii) permit any modification, waiver or amendment of any term of any Mortgage Loan that would both (A) effect an exchange or reissuance of such Mortgage Loan under Section 1001 of the Code (or Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder) and (B) cause any Trust REMIC 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. The Servicer may delegate its responsibilities under this Agreement; provided, however, that no such delegation shall release the Servicer from the responsibilities or liabilities arising under this Agreement. 61

SECTION 3.02 Sub-Servicing Agreements Between Servicer and Sub-Servicers. (a)Subject to Section 14.01(d), the Servicer may enter into Sub-Servicing Agreements with Sub-Servicers for the servicing and administration of the Mortgage Loans; provided, however, that such agreements would not result in a withdrawal or a downgrading by any Rating Agency of the rating on any Class of Certificates. The Trustee is hereby authorized to acknowledge, at the request of the Servicer, any Sub-Servicing Agreement that, based on an Officers' Certificate of the Servicer delivered to the Trustee (upon which the Trustee can conclusively rely), meets the requirements applicable to Sub-Servicing Agreements set forth in this Agreement and that is otherwise permitted under this Agreement. Each Sub-Servicer shall be 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. Each Sub-Servicing Agreement must impose on the Sub-Servicer requirements conforming to the provisions set forth in Section 3.08 and provide for servicing of the Mortgage Loans consistent with the terms of this Agreement. The Servicer will examine each Sub-Servicing Agreement and will be familiar with the terms thereof. The terms of any Sub-Servicing Agreement will not be inconsistent with any of the provisions of this Agreement. The Servicer and the Sub-Servicers may enter into and make amendments to the Sub-Servicing Agreements or enter into different forms of Sub-Servicing Agreements; provided, however, that any such amendments or different forms shall be consistent with and not violate the provisions of this Agreement, and that no such amendment or different form shall be made or entered into which could be reasonably expected to be materially adverse to the interests of the Certificateholders without the consent of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 66% of the Voting Rights; provided, further, that the consent of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 66% of the Voting Rights shall not be required (i) to cure any ambiguity or defect in a Sub-Servicing Agreement, (ii) to correct, modify or supplement any provisions of a Sub-Servicing Agreement, or (iii) to make any other provisions with respect to matters or questions arising under a Sub-Servicing Agreement, which, in each case, shall not be inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement. Any variation without the consent of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 66% of the Voting Rights from the provisions set forth in Section 3.08 relating to insurance or priority requirements of Sub-Servicing Accounts, or credits and charges to the Sub-Servicing Accounts or the timing and amount of remittances by the Sub-Servicers to the Servicer, are conclusively deemed to be inconsistent with this Agreement and therefore prohibited. The Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee, upon its request, copies of all Sub-Servicing Agreements, and any amendments or modifications thereof, promptly upon the Servicer's execution and delivery of such instruments. (b) As part of its servicing activities hereunder, the Servicer, for the benefit of the Trustee and the Certificateholders, shall enforce the obligations of each Sub-Servicer under the related Sub-Servicing Agreement, including, without limitation, any obligation of a Sub-Servicer to make advances in respect of delinquent payments as required by a Sub-Servicing Agreement. Such enforcement, including, without limitation, the legal prosecution of claims, termination of Sub-Servicing Agreements, 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 Servicer, in its good faith business judgment, would require were it the owner of the related Mortgage Loans. The Servicer shall 62
EX-10.170th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 70th
pay the costs of enforcing the obligations of a Sub-Servicer at its own expense, and shall be reimbursed therefor only (i) from a general recovery resulting from such enforcement, to the extent, if any, that such recovery exceeds all amounts due in respect of the related Mortgage Loans, or (ii) from a specific recovery of costs, expenses or attorneys' fees against the party against whom such enforcement is directed. SECTION 3.03 Successor Sub-Servicers. The Servicer shall be entitled to terminate any Sub-Servicing Agreement and the rights and obligations of any Sub-Servicer pursuant to any Sub-Servicing Agreement in accordance with the terms and conditions of such Sub-Servicing Agreement. In the event of termination of any Sub-Servicer, all servicing obligations of such Sub-Servicer shall be assumed simultaneously by the Servicer without any act or deed on the part of such Sub-Servicer or the Servicer, and the Servicer either shall service directly the related Mortgage Loans or shall 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 the Trustee (if the Trustee is acting as Servicer) without fee, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, in the event that the Servicer (or the Trustee, if it is then acting as Servicer) shall, for any reason, no longer be the Servicer (including termination due to a Servicer Event of Default). SECTION 3.04 Liability of the Servicer. Notwithstanding any Sub-Servicing Agreement or the provisions of this Agreement relating to agreements or arrangements between the Servicer and a Sub-Servicer or reference to actions taken through a Sub-Servicer or otherwise, the Servicer shall remain obligated and primarily liable to the Trustee and the Certificateholders for the servicing and administering of the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.01 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 Servicer alone were servicing and administering the Mortgage Loans. The Servicer shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with a Sub-Servicer for indemnification of the Servicer by such Sub-Servicer and nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification. SECTION 3.05 No Contractual Relationship Between Sub-Servicers, the Trustee or the Certificateholders. Any Sub-Servicing Agreement that may be entered into and any other transactions or services relating to the Mortgage Loans involving a Sub-Servicer in its capacity as such shall be deemed to be between the Sub-Servicer and the Servicer alone, and the Trustee and the Certificateholders shall not be deemed parties thereto and shall have no claims, rights, obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to the Sub-Servicer except as set forth in Section 3.06. The Servicer shall be solely liable for all fees owed by it to any Sub-Servicer, irrespective of whether the Servicer's compensation pursuant to this Agreement is sufficient to pay such fees. The foregoing provision shall not in any way limit a Sub-Servicer's obligation to cure an omission or defect. 63

SECTION 3.06 Assumption or Termination of Sub-Servicing Agreements by the Trustee. In the event the Servicer shall for any reason no longer be the Servicer (including by reason of the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Default), the Trustee, its designee or other successor Servicer shall thereupon assume all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer under each Sub-Servicing Agreement that the Servicer may have entered into, unless the Trustee, such designee or other successor Servicer elects to terminate any Sub-Servicing Agreement in accordance with its terms as provided in Section 3.03. Upon such assumption, the Trustee, its designee or the successor Servicer for the Trustee appointed pursuant to Section 7.02 shall be deemed, subject to Section 3.03, to have assumed all of the Servicer's interest therein and to have replaced the Servicer as a party to each Sub-Servicing Agreement to the same extent as if each Sub-Servicing Agreement had been assigned to the assuming party, except that (i) the Servicer shall not thereby be relieved of any liability or obligations under any Sub-Servicing Agreement that arose before it ceased to be the Servicer and (ii) none of the Trustee, its designee or any successor Servicer shall be deemed to have assumed any liability or obligation of the Servicer that arose before it ceased to be the Servicer. The Servicer at its expense shall, upon request of the Trustee, deliver to the assuming party all documents and records relating to each Sub-Servicing Agreement and the Mortgage Loans then being serviced and an accounting of amounts collected and held by or on behalf of it, and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of each Sub-Servicing Agreement to the assuming party. The Servicing Fee payable to the Trustee as successor Servicer or other 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 3.07 Collection of Certain Mortgage Loan Payments. The Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Mortgage Loans, and shall, to the extent such procedures shall be consistent with this Agreement and the terms and provisions of any applicable insurance policies, 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, the Servicer may in its discretion (i) waive any late payment charge or, if applicable, any penalty interest, or (ii) extend the due dates for the Monthly Payments due on a Mortgage Note for a period of not greater than 180 days; provided, however, that any extension pursuant to clause (ii) above shall not affect the amortization schedule of any Mortgage Loan for purposes of any computation hereunder, except as provided below. In the event of any such arrangement pursuant to clause (ii) above, the Servicer shall make timely advances on such Mortgage Loan during such extension pursuant to Section 4.03 and in accordance with the amortization schedule of such Mortgage Loan without modification thereof by reason of such arrangement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any Mortgage Loan is in default or, in the judgment of the Servicer, such default is reasonably foreseeable, the Servicer, consistent with the standards set forth in Section 3.01, may also waive, modify or vary any term of such Mortgage Loan (including modifications that would 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 (such payment, 64
EX-10.172nd Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 72nd
a "Short Pay-off"), or consent to the postponement of strict compliance with any such term or otherwise grant indulgence to any Mortgagor. SECTION 3.08 Sub-Servicing Accounts. In those cases where a Sub-Servicer is servicing a Mortgage Loan pursuant to a Sub-Servicing Agreement, the Sub-Servicer will be required to establish and maintain one or more accounts (collectively, the "Sub-Servicing Account"). The Sub-Servicing Account shall be an Eligible Account and shall comply with all requirements of this Agreement relating to the Custodial Account. The Sub-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 Sub-Servicer's receipt thereof, all proceeds of Mortgage Loans received by the Sub-Servicer less its servicing compensation to the extent permitted by the Sub-Servicing Agreement, and shall thereafter deposit such amounts in the Sub- Servicing Account, in no event more than two Business Days after the receipt of such amounts. The Sub-Servicer shall thereafter deposit such proceeds in the Custodial Account or remit such proceeds to the Servicer for deposit in the Custodial Account not later than two Business Days after the deposit of such amounts in the Sub-Servicing Account. For purposes of this Agreement, the Servicer shall be deemed to have received payments on the Mortgage Loans when the Sub-Servicer receives such payments. SECTION 3.09 Collection of Taxes, Assessments and Similar Items; Servicing Accounts. The Servicer shall establish and maintain, or cause to be established and maintained, 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, 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 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 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 more than two Business Days after the receipt of such Escrow Payments, 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 only to (i) effect payment of taxes, assessments, hazard insurance premiums, and comparable items in a manner and at a time that assures that the lien priority of the Mortgage is not jeopardized (or, with respect to the payment of taxes, in a manner and at a time that avoids the loss of the Mortgaged Property due to a tax sale or the foreclosure as a result of a tax lien); (ii) reimburse the Servicer (or a Sub-Servicer to the extent provided in the related Sub-Servicing Agreement) out of related collections for any advances made pursuant to Section 3.01 (with respect to taxes and assessments) and Section 3.14 (with respect to 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 (v) clear and terminate the Servicing Account at the termination of the Servicer's obligations and responsibilities in respect of the Mortgage Loans under this Agreement in accordance with Article IX. As part of its servicing duties, the Servicer or Sub-Servicers shall pay to the Mortgagors interest on funds in the 65
EX-10.173rd Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 73rd
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. SECTION 3.10 Custodial Account and Certificate Account. (a) On behalf of the Trust Fund, the Servicer shall establish and maintain, or cause to be established and maintained, one or more accounts (such account or accounts, the "Custodial Account"), held in trust for the benefit of the Trustee and the Certificateholders. On behalf of the Trust Fund, the 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 the Servicer's receipt thereof, and shall thereafter deposit in the Custodial Account, in no event more than two Business Days after the Servicer's receipt thereof, as and when received or as otherwise required hereunder, the following payments and collections received or made by it subsequent to the Cut-off Date (other than in respect of principal or interest on the related Mortgage Loans due on or before the Cut-off Date), or payments (other than Principal Prepayments) received by it on or prior to the Cut-off Date but allocable to a Due Period subsequent thereto: (i) all payments on account of principal, including Principal Prepayments, on the Mortgage Loans; (ii) all payments on account of interest (net of the related Servicing Fee) on each Mortgage Loan; (iii) all Insurance Proceeds, Liquidation Proceeds (other than proceeds collected in respect of any particular REO Property and amounts paid in connection with a purchase of Mortgage Loans and REO Properties pursuant to Section 9.01) and Subsequent Recoveries; (iv) any amounts required to be deposited pursuant to Section 3.12 in connection with any losses realized on Permitted Investments with respect to funds held in the Custodial Account; (v) any amounts required to be deposited by the Servicer pursuant to the second paragraph of Section 3.14(a) in respect of any blanket policy deductibles; (vi) all proceeds of any Mortgage Loan repurchased or purchased in accordance with Section 2.03, Section 3.16 or Section 9.01; (vii) all amounts required to be deposited in connection with shortfalls in principal amount of Qualified Substitute Mortgage Loans pursuant to Section 2.03; and (viii) all Prepayment Charges collected by the Servicer and any Servicer Prepayment Charge Payment Amounts in connection with the Principal Prepayment of any of the Mortgage Loans. 66
EX-10.174th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 74th
The foregoing requirements for deposit in the Custodial 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, modification or assumption fees, or insufficient funds charges need not be deposited by the Servicer in the Custodial Account and may be retained by the Servicer as additional compensation. In the event the Servicer shall deposit in the Custodial Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at any time withdraw such amount from the Custodial Account, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. (b) On behalf of the Trust Fund, the Trustee shall establish and maintain one or more accounts (such account or accounts, the "Certificate Account"), held in trust for the benefit of the Trustee, the Trust Fund and the Certificateholders. On behalf of the Trust Fund, the Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee in immediately available funds for deposit in the Certificate Account by 3:00 p.m. New York time (i) 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 Certificate Account) for the related Distribution Date then on deposit in the Custodial Account and the amount of all Prepayment Charges collected during the applicable Prepayment Period by the Servicer and Servicer Prepayment Charge Payment Amounts in connection with the Principal Prepayment of any of the Mortgage Loans then on deposit in the Custodial Account and the amount of any funds reimbursable to an Advancing Person pursuant to Section 3.26 and (ii) on each Business Day as of the commencement of which the balance on deposit in the Custodial Account exceeds $75,000 following any withdrawals pursuant to the next succeeding sentence, the amount of such excess, but only if the Custodial Account constitutes an Eligible Account solely pursuant to clause (ii) of the definition of "Eligible Account." If the balance on deposit in the Custodial Account exceeds $75,000 as of the commencement of business on any Business Day and the Custodial Account constitutes an Eligible Account solely pursuant to clause (ii) of the definition of "Eligible Account," the Servicer shall, by 3:00 p.m. New York time on such Business Day, withdraw from the Custodial Account any and all amounts payable or reimbursable to the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee, the Responsible Party, the Seller or any Sub-Servicer pursuant to Section 3.11 and shall pay such amounts to the Persons entitled thereto. (c) Funds in the Custodial Account and the Certificate Account may be invested in Permitted Investments in accordance with the provisions set forth in Section 3.12. The Servicer shall give notice to the Trustee of the location of the Custodial Account maintained by it when established and prior to any change thereof. The Trustee shall give notice to the Servicer and the Depositor of the location of the Certificate Account when established and prior to any change thereof. (d) Funds held in the Custodial Account at any time may be delivered by the Servicer to the Trustee for deposit in an account (which may be the Certificate Account and must satisfy the standards for the Certificate Account as set forth in the definition thereof) and for all purposes of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a part of the Custodial Account (and in such event, the Servicer shall provide the Trustee with written instructions regarding the investment of such funds); provided, however, that the Trustee shall have the sole authority to withdraw any funds held pursuant to this subsection (d). In the event the Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee for deposit in the Certificate Account any amount not required to be deposited therein, it may at 67
EX-10.175th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 75th
any time request in writing that the Trustee withdraw such amount from the Certificate Account and remit to it any such amount, any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding. In no event shall the Trustee incur liability as a result of withdrawals from the Certificate Account at the direction of the Servicer in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence.

SECTION 3.11 Withdrawals from the Custodial Account and Certificate Account.

(iv) to pay to the Servicer 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 Custodial Account; (v) to pay to the Servicer, the Depositor, the Responsible Party or the Seller, as the case may be, with respect to each Mortgage Loan that has previously been purchased or replaced pursuant to Section 2.03 or Section 3.16(c) all amounts received thereon subsequent to the date of purchase or substitution, as the case may be; (vi) to reimburse the Servicer for any Advance previously made which the Servicer has determined to be a Nonrecoverable Advance in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.03; (vii) to reimburse the Servicer or the Depositor for expenses incurred by or reimbursable to the Servicer or the Depositor, as the case may be, pursuant to Section 3.02(b) and Section 6.03; (viii) to reimburse the Servicer or Trustee for expenses reasonably incurred in connection with any breach or defect giving rise to the purchase obligation under Section 2.03 of this Agreement, including any expenses arising out of the enforcement of the purchase obligation; (ix) to pay, or to reimburse the Servicer for Servicing Advances in respect of, expenses incurred in connection with any Mortgage Loan pursuant to Section 3.16(b); and (x) to clear and terminate the Custodial Account pursuant to Section 9.01.

The Servicer shall provide written notification to the Trustee, on or prior to the next succeeding Servicer Remittance Date, upon making any withdrawals from the Custodial Account pursuant to subclauses (vi) and (vii) above; provided that an Officers' Certificate in the form described under Section 4.03(d) shall suffice for such written notification to the Trustee in respect of clause (vi) hereof. (b) The Trustee shall, from time to time, make withdrawals from the Certificate Account, for any of the following purposes, without priority: (i) to make distributions to Certificateholders in accordance with Section 4.01; (ii) to pay to itself amounts to which it is entitled pursuant to Section 8.05 or for Extraordinary Trust Fund Expenses; (iii) to reimburse itself pursuant to Section 7.02; 69
EX-10.177th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 77th
(iv) to pay any amounts in respect of taxes pursuant to Section 10.01(g)(iii); (v) to pay to an Advancing Person reimbursements for Advances and/or Servicing Advances pursuant to Section 3.26; and (vi) to clear and terminate the Certificate Account pursuant to Section 9.01. SECTION 3.12 Investment of Funds in the Custodial Account and the Certificate Account. (a) The Servicer may direct any depository institution maintaining the Custodial Account (for purposes of this Section 3.12, an "Investment Account") to invest the funds in such 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 Trustee 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 Trustee is the obligor thereon. Amounts in the Certificate Account shall be held uninvested. All such Permitted Investments shall be held to maturity, unless payable on demand. Any investment of funds in an Investment Account shall be made in the name of the Trustee for the benefit of the Certificateholders. The Trustee shall be entitled to sole possession (except with respect to investment direction of funds held in the Custodial Account and any income and gain realized thereon) over each such investment, and any certificate or other instrument evidencing any such investment shall be delivered directly to the Trustee 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 an Investment 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 determination by a Responsible Officer of the Trustee 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 the Custodial Account and any REO Account held by or on behalf of the Servicer, shall be for the benefit of the Servicer and shall be subject to its withdrawal in accordance with Section 3.11 or Section 3.23, as applicable. The Servicer shall deposit in the Custodial Account or any REO Account, as applicable, the amount of any loss of principal incurred in respect of any such Permitted Investment made with funds in such accounts immediately upon realization of such loss. 70
EX-10.178th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 78th
(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 (of which a Responsible Officer of the Trustee obtains actual knowledge), the Trustee may and, subject to Section 8.01 and Section 8.02(v), upon the request of the Holders of Certificates representing more than 50% of the Voting Rights allocated to any Class of Certificates, shall take such action as may be appropriate to enforce such payment or performance, including the institution and prosecution of appropriate proceedings. (d) The Trustee or its Affiliates are permitted to receive additional compensation that could be deemed to be in the Trustee'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 and (ii) effecting or using Affiliates to effect transactions in certain Permitted Investments. Such compensation shall not be considered an amount that is reimbursable or payable to the Trustee pursuant to Section 3.11 or 3.12 or otherwise payable in respect of Extraordinary Trust Fund Expenses. SECTION 3.13 [Reserved]. SECTION 3.14 Maintenance of Hazard Insurance and Errors and Omissions and Fidelity Coverage. (a) The Servicer shall cause to be maintained for each Mortgage Loan fire insurance with extended coverage on the related Mortgaged Property in an amount which is at least equal to the lesser of the current principal balance of such Mortgage Loan and the amount necessary to fully compensate for any damage or loss to the improvements that 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. The Servicer shall also cause to be maintained fire insurance with extended coverage on each REO Property 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, plus accrued interest at the Mortgage Rate and related Servicing Advances. The 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 the 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 the procedures that the Servicer would follow in servicing loans held for its own account, subject to the terms and conditions of the related Mortgage and Mortgage Note) shall be deposited in the Custodial Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 3.11, if received in respect of a Mortgage Loan, or in the REO Account, subject to withdrawal pursuant to Section 3.23, if received in respect of an REO Property. Any cost incurred by the 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 71
EX-10.179th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 79th
Federal Register by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as having special flood hazards and flood insurance has been made available, the 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 Servicer shall obtain and maintain a blanket policy with an insurer having a General Policy Rating of B or better in Best's Key Rating Guide (or such other rating that is comparable to such rating) insuring against hazard losses on all of the Mortgage Loans, it shall conclusively be deemed to have satisfied its obligations as set forth in the first two sentences of this Section 3.14, it being understood and agreed that such policy may contain a deductible clause, in which case the 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 3.14, and there shall have been one or more losses which would have been covered by such policy, deposit to the Custodial 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 Mortgage Loans, the Servicer agrees to prepare and present, on behalf of itself, the Trustee and Certificateholders, claims under any such blanket policy in a timely fashion in accordance with the terms of such policy. (b) The 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 the Servicer's obligations under this Agreement, which policy or policies shall be in such form and amount that would meet the requirements of the FDIC. The Servicer shall also maintain a fidelity bond in the form and amount that would meet the requirements of the FDIC. The Servicer shall be deemed to have complied with this provision if an Affiliate of the 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 the 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. The Servicer shall also cause each Sub-Servicer to maintain a policy of insurance covering errors and omissions and a fidelity bond which would meet such requirements. SECTION 3.15 Enforcement of Due-On-Sale Clauses; Assumption Agreements. The Servicer will, to the extent it has knowledge of any conveyance or prospective conveyance of any Mortgaged Property by any 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 the Servicer shall not be required to take such action if in its sole business judgment the Servicer believes it is not in the best interests of the Trust Fund and shall not exercise any such rights if prohibited by law from doing so. If the Servicer reasonably believes 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, the Servicer will enter into an assumption and modification agreement 72
EX-10.180th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 80th
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. The 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 underwriting criteria of the Originator and has a credit risk rating at least equal to that of the original Mortgagor. In connection with any assumption or substitution, the Servicer shall apply the Originator's 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. The Servicer shall not 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 the Servicer in respect of an assumption, modification or substitution of liability agreement shall be retained by the 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. The Servicer shall notify the Trustee that any such substitution, modification or assumption agreement has been completed by forwarding to the Trustee the executed original of such substitution, modification 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, the Servicer shall not 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 Servicer may be restricted by law from preventing, for any reason whatever. For purposes of this Section 3.15, 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 3.16 Realization Upon Defaulted Mortgage Loans. (a) The Servicer shall exercise its discretion, consistent with customary servicing procedures and the terms of this Agreement, with respect to the enforcement and servicing of defaulted Mortgage Loans in such manner as will maximize the receipt of principal and interest with respect thereto, including, but not limited to, the modification of such Mortgage Loan, or foreclosure upon the related Mortgaged Property and disposition thereof. In furtherance of the foregoing, the 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 3.07. The 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 73
EX-10.181st Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 81st
Servicing Advances by the Servicer as contemplated in Section 3.11 and Section 3.23. The foregoing is subject to the provision that, in any case in which Mortgaged Property shall have suffered damage from an Uninsured Cause, the 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 3.16 or any other provision of this Agreement, with respect to any Mortgage Loan as to which the Servicer has received actual notice of, or has actual knowledge of, the presence of any toxic or hazardous substance on the related Mortgaged Property, the 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 Trustee, the Trust Fund 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 the Servicer has also previously determined, based on its reasonable judgment and a 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 3.16 shall be advanced by the Servicer, subject to the Servicer's right to be reimbursed therefor from the Custodial Account as provided in Section 3.11(a)(ix), such right of reimbursement being prior to the rights of Certificateholders to receive any amount in the Custodial Account received in respect of the affected Mortgage Loan or other Mortgage Loans. If the 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 Servicer shall take such action as it deems to be in the best economic interest of the Trust Fund; provided 74
EX-10.182nd Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 82nd
that any amounts disbursed by the Servicer pursuant to this Section 3.16(b) shall constitute Servicing Advances, subject to Section 4.03(d). The cost of any such compliance, containment, cleanup or remediation shall be advanced by the Servicer, subject to the Servicer's right to be reimbursed therefor from the Custodial Account as provided in Section 3.11(a)(iii) and (a)(ix), such right of reimbursement being prior to the rights of Certificateholders to receive any amount in the Custodial Account received in respect of the affected Mortgage Loan or other Mortgage Loans. (c) The Servicer may at its option purchase from REMIC I any Mortgage Loan or related REO Property that is 90 days or more delinquent, which the 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 the Trustee prior to purchase), at a price equal to the Purchase Price; provided, however, that the Servicer shall purchase any such Mortgage Loans or related REO Properties on the basis of delinquency, purchasing the most delinquent Mortgage Loans or related REO Properties first. The Purchase Price for any Mortgage Loan or related REO Property purchased hereunder shall be deposited in the Custodial Account, and the Trustee, upon receipt of written certification from the Servicer of such deposit, shall release or cause to be released to the Servicer the related Mortgage File and the Trustee shall execute and deliver such instruments of transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse, as the Servicer shall furnish and as shall be necessary to vest in the Servicer title to any Mortgage Loan or related REO Property 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, Liquidation Proceeds or Subsequent Recoveries, in respect of any Mortgage Loan, will be applied in the following order of priority: first, to reimburse the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer for any related unreimbursed Servicing Advances and Advances, pursuant to Section 3.11(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 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 Servicer or any Sub-Servicer pursuant to Section 3.11(a)(iii). SECTION 3.17 Trustee to Cooperate; Release of Mortgage Files. (a) Upon the payment in full of any Mortgage Loan, or upon the receipt by the Servicer of a notification that payment in full shall be escrowed in a manner customary for such purposes, the Servicer shall immediately notify or cause to be notified the Trustee by a certification in the form of Exhibit E (which certification shall include a statement to the effect that all amounts received or to be received in connection with such payment which are required to be deposited in the Custodial Account pursuant to Section 3.10 have been or will be so deposited) of a Servicing Officer and shall request delivery to it of the Mortgage File. Upon receipt of such certification and request, the Trustee shall promptly release the related Mortgage File to the Servicer at no cost to the 75
EX-10.183rd Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 83rd
Trustee or the Trust Fund. No expenses incurred in connection with any instrument of satisfaction or deed of reconveyance shall be chargeable to the Custodial Account or the Certificate Account. (b) From time to time and as appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of any Mortgage Loan, including, for this purpose, collection under any insurance policy relating to the Mortgage Loans, the Trustee shall, upon any request made by or on behalf of the Servicer and delivery to the Trustee of a Request for Release in the form of Exhibit E, release the related Mortgage File to the Servicer, and the Trustee shall, at the direction of the Servicer, execute such documents as shall be necessary to the prosecution of any such proceedings. Such Request for Release shall obligate the Servicer to return each and every document previously requested from the Mortgage File to the Trustee when the need therefor by the Servicer no longer exists, unless (i) the Mortgage Loan has been liquidated and the Liquidation Proceeds relating to the Mortgage Loan have been deposited in the Custodial Account or (ii) the Mortgage File or such document has been delivered to an attorney, or to a public trustee or other public official as required by law, for purposes of initiating or pursuing legal action or other proceedings for the foreclosure of the Mortgaged Property either judicially or non-judicially, and the Servicer has delivered, or caused to be delivered, to the Trustee an additional Request for Release certifying as to such liquidation or action or proceedings. Upon the request of the Trustee, the Servicer shall provide notice to the Trustee of the name and address of the Person to which such Mortgage File or such document was delivered and the purpose or purposes of such delivery. Upon receipt of a certificate of a Servicing Officer stating that such Mortgage Loan was liquidated and that all amounts received or to be received in connection with such liquidation that are required to be deposited into the Custodial Account have been so deposited, or that such Mortgage Loan has become an REO Property, any outstanding Requests for Release with respect to such Mortgage Loan shall be released by the Trustee to the Servicer or its designee. (c) Upon written certification of a Servicing Officer, the Trustee shall execute and deliver to the Servicer or the Sub-Servicer, as the case may be, any court pleadings, requests for trustee's sale or other documents 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. SECTION 3.18 Servicing Compensation. As compensation for the activities of the Servicer hereunder, the Servicer shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee with respect to each Mortgage Loan payable solely from payments of interest in respect of such Mortgage Loan, subject to Section 3.24. In addition, the Servicer shall be entitled to recover unpaid Servicing Fees out of Insurance Proceeds, Liquidation Proceeds or Subsequent Recoveries to the extent permitted by Section 3.11(a)(iii) and out of amounts derived from the operation and sale of an REO Property to the extent permitted by Section 3.23. Except as provided in Sections 3.26, the 76
EX-10.184th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 84th
right to receive the Servicing Fee may not be transferred in whole or in part except in connection with the transfer of all of the Servicer's responsibilities and obligations under this Agreement; provided, however, that the Servicer may pay from the Servicing Fee any amounts due to a Sub-Servicer pursuant to a Sub-Servicing Agreement entered into under Section 3.02. Additional servicing compensation in the form of assumption fees, late payment charges, insufficient funds charges or otherwise (subject to Section 3.24 and other than Prepayment Charges) shall be retained by the Servicer only to the extent such fees or charges are received by the Servicer. The Servicer shall also be entitled pursuant to Section 3.11(a)(iv) to withdraw from the Custodial Account and pursuant to Section 3.23(b) to withdraw from any REO Account, as additional servicing compensation, interest or other income earned on deposits therein, subject to Section 3.12 and Section 3.24. The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its servicing activities hereunder (including premiums for the insurance required by Section 3.14, to the extent such premiums are not paid by the related Mortgagors or by a Sub-Servicer, servicing compensation of each Sub-Servicer, and to the extent provided herein in Section 8.05, the expenses of the Trustee) and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor except as specifically provided herein. SECTION 3.19 Reports to the Trustee and Others; Custodial Account Statements. Not later than twenty days after each Distribution Date, the Servicer shall forward to the Trustee (upon the Trustee's request) and the Depositor the most current available bank statement for the Custodial Account. Copies of such statement shall be provided by the Trustee to any Certificateholder and to any Person identified to the Trustee as a prospective transferee of a Certificate, upon request at the expense of the requesting party, provided such statement is delivered by the Servicer to the Trustee. SECTION 3.20 [Reserved]. SECTION 3.21 [Reserved]. SECTION 3.22 Access to Certain Documentation. The 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 Certificateholder or Certificate Owner, access to the documentation in the Servicer's possession regarding the 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 Servicer designated by it. In addition, access to the documentation in the Servicer's possession regarding the Mortgage Loans will be provided to any Certificateholder or Certificate Owner, the Trustee and to any Person identified to the Servicer as a prospective transferee of a Certificate; provided, however, that providing access to such Person will not violate any applicable laws, upon reasonable request during normal business hours at the offices of the Servicer designated by it at the expense of the Person requesting such access. SECTION 3.23 Title, Management and Disposition of REO Property. (a) The deed or certificate of sale of any REO Property 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 Servicer, on behalf 77
EX-10.185th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 85th
of REMIC I, shall either sell any REO Property prior to the end of the third taxable year after REMIC I acquires ownership of such REO Property for purposes of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code or request from the Internal Revenue Service, no later than 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 Servicer shall have 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 years after its acquisition will not result in the imposition on any Trust REMIC of taxes on "prohibited transactions" thereof, as defined in Section 860F of the Code, or cause any Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC under Federal law at any time that any Certificates are outstanding. The 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 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) The 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, or cause to be established and maintained, with respect to REO Properties, an account held in trust for the Trustee for the benefit of the Certificateholders (the "REO Account"), which shall be an Eligible Account. The Servicer shall be permitted to allow the Custodial Account to serve as the REO Account, subject to separate ledgers for each REO Property. The Servicer shall be entitled to retain or withdraw any interest income paid on funds deposited in the REO Account. (c) The Servicer shall have the sole discretion to determine whether an immediate sale of an REO Property or continued management of such REO Property is in the best interests of the Certificateholders. In furtherance of the foregoing, the 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 as are consistent with the manner in which the Servicer manages and operates similar property owned by the Servicer or any of its Affiliates, all on such terms and for such period as the Servicer deems to be in the best interests of Certificateholders. In connection therewith, the 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 the Servicer's receipt thereof, and shall thereafter deposit in the REO Account, in no event more than two Business Days after the Servicer's receipt thereof, all revenues received by it with respect to an REO Property 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 78
EX-10.186th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 86th
(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 Servicer shall advance from its own funds such amount as is necessary for such purposes if, but only if, the Servicer would make such advances if the Servicer owned the REO Property and if in the Servicer's judgment, the payment of such amounts will be recoverable from the rental or sale of the REO Property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer shall not and the Trustee shall not knowingly authorize the Servicer to: (i) authorize the Trust Fund to 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; (ii) authorize any amount to be received or accrued under any New Lease other than amounts that will constitute Rents from Real Property; (iii) authorize 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 (iv) authorize any Person to Directly Operate any REO Property on any date more than 90 days after its date of acquisition by the Trust Fund; unless, in any such case, the Servicer has obtained an Opinion of Counsel, provided to the 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 Servicer may take such actions as are specified in such Opinion of Counsel. The Servicer may contract with any Independent Contractor for the operation and management of any REO Property, provided that: (i) the terms and conditions of any such contract shall not be inconsistent herewith; (ii) 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 Servicer as soon as practicable, but in no event later than thirty days following the receipt thereof by such Independent Contractor; 79
EX-10.187th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 87th
(iii) none of the provisions of this Section 3.23(c) relating to any such contract or to actions taken through any such Independent Contractor shall be deemed to relieve the Servicer of any of its duties and obligations to the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders with respect to the operation and management of any such REO Property; and (iv) the 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 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 Servicer by such Independent Contractor, and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification. The Servicer shall be solely liable for all fees owed by it to any such Independent Contractor, irrespective of whether the Servicer's compensation pursuant to Section 3.18 is sufficient to pay such fees; provided, however, that to the extent that any payments made by such Independent Contractor would constitute Servicing Advances if made by the Servicer, such amounts shall be reimbursable as Servicing Advances made by the Servicer. (d) In addition to the withdrawals permitted under Section 3.23(c), the Servicer may from time to time make withdrawals from the REO Account for any REO Property: (i) to pay itself or any Sub-Servicer 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 Servicer shall withdraw from each REO Account maintained by it and deposit into the Certificate Account in accordance with Section 3.10(d)(ii), for distribution on the related Distribution Date in accordance with Section 4.01, the income from the related REO Property received during the prior calendar month, net of any withdrawals made pursuant to Section 3.23(c) or this Section 3.23(d). (e) Subject to the time constraints set forth in Section 3.23(a), each REO Disposition shall be carried out by the Servicer at such price and upon such terms and conditions as the Servicer shall deem necessary or advisable, as shall be normal and usual in its 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 Servicer or any Sub-Servicer as provided above, shall be deposited in the Certificate Account in accordance with Section 3.10(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 4.01. 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 Servicer shall file information returns with respect to the receipt of mortgage interest received in a trade or business, reports of foreclosures and abandonments of any 80
EX-10.188th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 88th
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 3.24 Obligations of the Servicer in Respect of Prepayment Interest Shortfalls. The Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee for deposit into the Certificate Account by 1:00 p.m. New York time on the Servicer Remittance Date from its own funds an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the aggregate of the Prepayment Interest Shortfalls for the related Distribution Date resulting from full Principal Prepayments during the related Prepayment Period and (ii) the aggregate Servicing Fee for the related Prepayment Period. Any amounts paid by the Servicer pursuant to this Section 3.24 shall not be reimbursed by any Trust REMIC or the Trust Fund. SECTION 3.25 Obligations of the Servicer 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 the Servicer in a manner not consistent with the terms of the related Mortgage Note applicable laws, regulations and rulings and this Agreement, the Servicer, upon discovery or receipt of notice thereof, shall immediately deliver to the Trustee for deposit in the Certificate Account from its own funds the amount of any such shortfall and shall indemnify and hold harmless the Trust Fund, the Trustee, 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 3.25 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, as permitted by law. SECTION 3.26 Advance Facility. (a) The Servicer is hereby authorized to enter into a financing or other facility (any such arrangement an "Advance Facility") with any Person which provides that such Person (an "Advancing Person") may fund Advances and/or Servicing Advances to the Trust Fund under this Agreement, although no such facility shall reduce or otherwise affect the Servicer's obligation to fund such Advances and/or Servicing Advances. If the Servicer enters into such an Advance Facility pursuant to this Section 3.26, upon reasonable request of the Advancing Person, the Trustee shall execute a letter of acknowledgment, confirming its receipt of notice of the existence of such Advance Facility. To the extent that an Advancing Person funds any Advance or any Servicing Advance and the Servicer provides the Trustee with an Officers' Certificate that such Advancing Person is entitled to reimbursement, such Advancing Person shall be entitled to receive reimbursement pursuant to this Agreement for such amount to the extent provided in Section 3.26(b). Such Officers' Certificate must specify the amount of the reimbursement, the Section of this Agreement that permits the applicable Advance or Servicing Advance to be reimbursed and the section(s) of the Advance Facility that entitle the Advancing Person to request reimbursement from the Trustee, rather than the Servicer or proof of an event of default under the Advance Facility. The Trustee shall have no duty or liability with respect to any calculation of any reimbursement to be paid to an Advancing Person and shall be entitled to rely without independent investigation on the Advancing Person's notice provided pursuant to this Section 3.26. The Trustee shall have no responsibility to track or monitor the administration of the Advance Facility. An Advancing Person whose obligations 81
EX-10.189th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 89th
hereunder are limited to the funding of Advances and/or Servicing Advances shall not be required to meet the qualifications of the Servicer or a Sub-Servicer pursuant to Section 3.02 hereof and will not be deemed to be a Sub-Servicer under this Agreement. (b) If an advancing facility is entered into, then the Servicer shall not be permitted to reimburse itself therefor under Section 3.11(a)(ii), Section 3.11(a)(iii) and Section 3.11(a)(vi) prior to the remittance to the Trust Fund, but instead the Servicer shall remit such amounts in accordance with the documentation establishing the Advance Facility to such Advancing Person or to a trustee, agent or custodian (an "Advance Facility Trustee") designated by such Advancing Person. The Trustee is hereby authorized to pay to the Advancing Person, reimbursements for Advances and Servicing Advances from the Certificate Account to the same extent the Servicer would have been permitted to reimburse itself for such Advances and/or Servicing Advances in accordance with Section 3.11(a)(ii), Section 3.11(a)(iii) and Section 3.11(a)(vi), as the case may be, had the Servicer itself funded such Advance or Servicing Advance. The Trustee is hereby authorized to pay directly to the Advancing Person such portion of the Servicing Fee as the parties to any advancing facility agree in writing. (c) All Advances and Servicing Advances made pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be deemed made and shall be reimbursed on a "first in-first out" (FIFO) basis. (d) Any amendment to this Section 3.26 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 3.26, including amendments to add provisions relating to a successor Servicer, may be entered into by the Trustee and the Servicer without the consent of any Certificateholder, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement; provided, however, such amendment shall otherwise comply with Section 13.01 hereof. All costs and expenses (including attorneys' fees) of each party hereto related to such amendment shall be borne by the Servicer without reimbursement from the Trust Fund. SECTION 3.27 Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account. (a) No later than the Closing Date, the Trustee shall establish and maintain with itself, a separate, segregated trust account (the "Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account") titled, "Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as Trustee, in trust for the registered holders of Carrington Mortgage Loan Trust, Series 2006-FRE1, Asset Backed Pass-Through Certificates." On the Business Day prior to each Distribution Date, the Trustee will deposit any amounts received under the Cap Contracts into the Net WAC Carryover Reserve Account. All amounts deposited in the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account shall be distributed to the Holders of the Class A Certificates and the Mezzanine Certificates in the manner set forth in Section 4.01(a)(4). (b) On each Distribution Date as to which there is a Net WAC Rate Carryover Amount payable to the Class A Certificates or the Mezzanine Certificates, the Trustee has been directed by the Class CE Certificateholders to, and therefore will, deposit into the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account the amounts described in Section 4.01(a)(4), rather than distributing such amounts to the Class CE Certificateholders. On each such Distribution Date, the Trustee shall hold all such amounts for the benefit of the Holders of the Class A Certificates and the 82
EX-10.190th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 90th
Mezzanine Certificates, and will distribute such amounts to the Holders of the Class A Certificates and the Mezzanine Certificates in the amounts and priorities set forth in Section 4.01(a)(4). (c) For federal and state income tax purposes, the Class CE Certificateholders will be deemed to be the owners of the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account and amounts deposited into the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account (other than amounts paid on the Cap Contracts) shall be treated as amounts distributed by REMIC II to the Holders of the Class CE Certificates. Upon the termination of the Trust Fund, or the payment in full of the Class A Certificates and the Mezzanine Certificates, all amounts remaining on deposit in the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account will be released by the Trust Fund and distributed to the Class CE Certificateholders or their designees. The Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account will be part of the Trust Fund but not part of any REMIC and any payments to the Holders of the Class A Certificates or the Mezzanine 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 Certificate, each Class CE Certificateholder hereby agrees to direct the Trustee, and the Trustee hereby is directed, to deposit into the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account the amounts described above on each Distribution Date as to which there is any Net WAC Rate Carryover Amount rather than distributing such amounts to the Class CE Certificateholders. By accepting a Class CE Certificate, each Class CE Certificateholder further agrees that such direction is given for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is acknowledged by such acceptance. (e) Amounts on deposit in the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account shall remain uninvested. (f) For federal tax return and information reporting, the right of the Holders of the Class A Certificates and the Mezzanine Certificates to receive payments from the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account in respect of any Net WAC Rate Carryover Amount shall be assigned a value of $1,000 and $1,000, respectively. ARTICLE IV PAYMENTS TO CERTIFICATEHOLDERS SECTION 4.01 Distributions. (a) (1) On each Distribution Date, the following amounts, in the following order of priority, shall be distributed by REMIC I to REMIC II on account of the REMIC I Regular Interests or withdrawn from the Certificate Account and distributed to the holders of the Class R-I Interest, as the case may be: (i) first, to Holders of REMIC I Regular Interest I-LTAA, REMIC I Regular Interest I-LTA1, REMIC I Regular Interest I-LTA2, REMIC I Regular Interest I-LTA3, REMIC I Regular Interest I-LTA4, REMIC I Regular Interest I-LTM1, REMIC I Regular Interest I-LTM2, REMIC I Regular Interest I-LTM3, 83

(d) The rights of the Certificateholders to receive distributions in respect of the Certificates, and all interests of the Certificateholders in such distributions, shall be as set forth in this Agreement. None of the Holders of any Class of Certificates, the Trustee or the Servicer shall in any way be responsible or liable to the Holders of any other Class of Certificates in respect of amounts properly previously distributed on the Certificates. (e) Except as otherwise provided in Section 9.01, whenever the Trustee expects that the final distribution with respect to any Class of Certificates will be made on the next Distribution Date, the Trustee shall, no later than three (3) days before the related Distribution Date (to the extent that an accurate Remittance Report is received in a timely manner by the Trustee), mail to each Holder on such date of such Class of Certificates a notice to the effect that: (i) the Trustee expects that the final distribution with respect to such Class of Certificates will be made on such Distribution Date but only upon presentation and surrender of such Certificates at the office of the Trustee therein specified, and (ii) no interest shall accrue on such Certificates from and after the end of the related Interest Accrual Period. Any funds not distributed to any Holder or Holders of Certificates of such Class 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 by the Trustee 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 4.01(e) shall not have been surrendered for cancellation within six months after the time specified in such notice, the Trustee 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 Trustee shall, directly or through an agent, mail a final notice to the remaining non-tendering Certificateholders concerning surrender of their Certificates and shall continue to hold any remaining funds for the benefit of non-tendering Certificateholders.

No interest shall accrue or be payable to any Certificateholder on any amount held in trust by the Trustee as a result of such Certificateholder's failure to surrender its Certificate(s) for final payment thereof in accordance with this Section 4.01(e). Any such amounts held in trust by the Trustee shall be held in an Eligible Account and shall be held uninvested. (f) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, (i) in no event shall the Certificate Principal Balance of a Class A Certificate or a Mezzanine Certificate be reduced more than once in respect of any particular amount allocated to such Certificate in respect of Realized Losses pursuant to Section 4.04 and (ii) in no event shall the Uncertificated Balance of a REMIC I Regular Interest be reduced more than once in respect of any particular amount both (a) allocated to such REMIC I Regular Interest in respect of Realized Losses pursuant to Section 4.04 and (b) distributed on such REMIC I Regular Interest in reduction of the Uncertificated Balance thereof pursuant to this Section 4.01.

(d) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no Advance or Servicing Advance shall be required to be made hereunder by the Servicer if such Advance or Servicing Advance would, if made, constitute a Nonrecoverable Advance or Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance, respectively. The determination by the Servicer that it has made a Nonrecoverable Advance or a Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance or that any proposed Advance or Servicing Advance, if made, would constitute a Nonrecoverable Advance or Nonrecoverable Servicing Advance, respectively, shall be evidenced by a certification of a Servicing Officer delivered to the Depositor and the Trustee. SECTION 4.04 Allocation of Realized Losses.

The information described in the two preceding sentences that is to be supplied by the Servicer shall be evidenced by an Officers' Certificate delivered to the Trustee by the Servicer prior to the Determination Date immediately following the end of (i) in the case of Bankruptcy Losses allocable to interest, the Due Period during which any such Realized Loss was incurred, and (ii) in the case of all other Realized Losses, the Prepayment Period during which any such Realized Loss was incurred. (b) All Realized Losses on the Mortgage Loans shall be allocated or covered by the Trustee on each Distribution Date as follows: first, to the Accrued Certificate Interest for the Class CE Certificates for the related Interest Accrual Period; second, to the Class CE Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; third, to the Class M-10 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; fourth, to the Class M-9 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; fifth, to the Class M-8 Certificates, until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; sixth, to the Class M-7 Certificates until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; seventh, to the Class M-6 Certificates until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; eighth, to the Class M-5 Certificates until the Certificate Principal Balance thereof has been reduced to zero; ninth, to the 95

Any allocation of Realized Losses to a Class A Certificate or Mezzanine Certificate on any Distribution Date shall be made by reducing the Certificate Principal Balance thereof by the amount so allocated and any allocation of Realized Losses to a Class CE Certificates shall be made by reducing the amount otherwise payable in respect thereof pursuant to Section 4.01(a)(4)(vi). No allocations of any Realized Losses shall be made to the Certificate Principal Balances of the 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.

Promptly (but no later than 1 Business Day) after filing with the Commission, the Trustee will, make available on its internet website a final executed copy of each Form 8-K. The signing party at the Depositor can be contacted as described in Section 13.05. The parties to this Agreement acknowledge that the performance by the Trustee of its duties under this Section 4.06(c) related to the timely preparation and filing of Form 8-K is contingent upon such parties strictly observing all applicable deadlines in the performance of their duties under this Section 4.06(c). The Trustee shall have no liability for any loss, expense, damage, claim arising out of or with respect to any failure to properly prepare and/or timely file such Form 8-K, where such failure results from the Trustee's inability or failure to receive, on a timely basis, any information from any other party hereto needed to prepare, arrange for execution or file such Form 8-K, not resulting from its own negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct. (d) On or prior to January 30 of the first year in which the Trustee is able to do so under applicable law, the Trustee shall prepare and file a Form 15 Suspension Notification relating to the automatic suspension of reporting in respect of the Trust under the Exchange Act. In the event that the Trustee is unable to timely file with the Commission all or any required portion of any Form 8-K, 10-D or 10-K required to be filed by this Agreement because required disclosure information was either not delivered to it or delivered to it after the delivery deadlines set forth in this Agreement or for any other reason, the Trustee will promptly notify the Depositor and the Servicer of such inability to make a timely filing with the Commission. In the case of Form 10-D and 10-K, the Depositor, Servicer and Trustee will cooperate to prepare and file a Form 12b-25 and a 10-DA and 10-KA as applicable, pursuant to Rule 12b-25 of the Exchange Act. In the case of Form 8-K, the Trustee will, upon receipt of all required Form 8-K Disclosure Information and upon the approval and direction of the Depositor, include such disclosure information on the next succeeding Form 10-D to be filed for the Trust. In the event that any previously filed Form 8-K, 10-D or 10-K needs to be amended, the Trustee will notify the Depositor and the Servicer and such parties agree to cooperate to prepare any necessary 8-KA, 10-DA or 10-KA. Any Form 15, Form 12b-25 or any amendment to Form 8-K or 10-K shall be signed by a senior officer of the Depositor and any amendment to Form 10-D shall be signed by a senior officer of the Depositor. The Depositor and Servicer acknowledge that the performance by the Trustee of its duties under this Section 4.06(d) related to the timely preparation and filing of Form 15, a Form 12b-25 or any amendment to Form 8-K, 10-D or 10-K is contingent upon the Servicer and the Depositor performing their duties under this Section. The Trustee shall have no liability for any loss, expense, damage, claim arising out of or with respect to any failure to properly prepare and/or timely file any such Form 15, Form 12b-25 or any amendments to Forms 8-K, 10-D or 10-K, where such failure results from the Trustee's inability or failure to receive, on a timely basis, any information from any other party hereto needed to prepare, arrange for execution or file such Form 15, Form 12b-25 or any amendments to Forms 8-K, 10-D or 10-K, not resulting from its own negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct. 101

The Trustee shall have no responsibility to file any items other than those specified in this Section 4.06; provided, however, the Trustee and the Servicer will cooperate with the Depositor in connection with any additional filings with respect to the Trust Fund as the Depositor deems necessary under the Exchange Act. ARTICLE V THE CERTIFICATES SECTION 5.01 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. The Certificates will be substantially in the forms annexed hereto as Exhibits A-1 through A-17. 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, authenticated and delivered by the Trustee to or upon the written order of the Depositor. The Certificates shall be executed by manual or facsimile signature on behalf of the Trustee by an authorized signatory. Certificates bearing the manual or facsimile signatures of individuals who were at any time the proper officers of the Trustee shall bind the Trustee 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 Trustee 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 Trustee 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 Trustee is hereby initially appointed as the Book-Entry Custodian and 102
EX-10.1110th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 110th
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 Servicer, the Trustee 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 Trustee resigns or is removed in accordance with the terms hereof, the successor Trustee 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. The Trustee, the Servicer and the Depositor may for all purposes (including the making of payments due on the respective Classes of Book-Entry Certificates) deal with the Depository as the authorized representative of the Certificate Owners with respect to the respective Classes of Book-Entry Certificates for the purposes of exercising the rights of Certificateholders hereunder. The rights of Certificate Owners with respect to the respective Classes of Book-Entry 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 any Class of Book-Entry Certificates with respect to any particular matter shall not be deemed inconsistent if they are made with respect to different Certificate Owners. The Trustee 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 Trustee 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 or (ii) after the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Default, Certificate Owners representing in the aggregate not less than 66% of the Ownership Interests of the Book-Entry Certificates advise the Trustee 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 Trustee 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. Upon surrender to the Trustee of the Book-Entry Certificates by the Book-Entry Custodian or the Depository, as applicable, accompanied by registration instructions from the Depository for registration of transfer, the Trustee shall cause the Definitive Certificates to be issued. Such Definitive Certificates will be issued in minimum denominations of $25,000, except that any beneficial ownership that was represented by a Book-Entry Certificate in an amount less than $25,000 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. None of the Depositor, the Servicer 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 103
EX-10.1111th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 111th
imposed upon and performed by the Trustee, to the extent applicable with respect to such Definitive Certificates, and the Trustee shall recognize the Holders of the Definitive Certificates as Certificateholders hereunder. SECTION 5.02 Registration of Transfer and Exchange of Certificates. (a) The Trustee shall cause to be kept at one of the offices or agencies to be appointed by the Trustee in accordance with the provisions of Section 8.11, a Certificate Register for the Certificates in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Trustee shall provide for the registration of Certificates and of transfers and exchanges of Certificates as herein provided. (b) No transfer of any Class M-10 Certificate, Class CE Certificate, Class P Certificate or Residual Certificate (the "Private Certificates") shall be made unless that transfer is made pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 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 Private Certificate is to be made without registration or qualification (other than in connection with (i) the initial transfer of any such Certificate by the Depositor to an Affiliate of the Depositor, (ii) the transfer of any such Class CE or Class P Certificate to the issuer under the Indenture or the indenture trustee under the Indenture or (iii) a transfer of any such Class CE or Class P Certificate from the issuer under the Indenture or the indenture trustee under the Indenture to the Depositor or an Affiliate of the Depositor), the Trustee 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 Certificateholder desiring to effect the transfer and from such Certificateholder's prospective transferee, substantially in the forms attached hereto as Exhibit F-1; and (ii) in all other cases, an Opinion of Counsel satisfactory to it that such transfer may be made without such registration (which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Trust Fund or of the Depositor, the Trustee, the Servicer in its capacity as such or any Sub-Servicer), 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. None of the Depositor or the Trustee is obligated to register or qualify any such Certificates under the 1933 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 and the Servicer 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. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of any such transfer of any Ownership Interest in any Private Certificate that is a Book-Entry Certificate, except with respect to the initial transfer of any such Ownership Interest by the Depositor, such transfer shall be required to be made in reliance upon Rule 144A under the 1933 Act, and the transferee will be deemed to have made each of the transferee representations and warranties set forth Exhibit F-1 hereto in respect of such interest as if it was evidenced by a Definitive Certificate. The Certificate Owner of any such Ownership Interest in any such Book-Entry Certificate desiring to effect such transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Trustee and the Depositor against any 104
EX-10.1112th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 112th
liability that may result if the transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with such federal and state laws. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no certification or Opinion of Counsel described in this Section 5.02(b) will be required in connection with the transfer, on the Closing Date, of any Class R Certificate by the Depositor to an "accredited investor" within the meaning of Rule 501(d) of the 1933 Act. (c) (i) No purchase or transfer of a Private Certificate (other than a Class M-10 Certificate) or any interest therein shall be made to any Plan, any Person acting, directly or indirectly, on behalf of any such Plan or any Person acquiring such Private Certificates with "plan assets" (within the meaning of the Department of Labor regulation promulgated at 29 C. F. R. ss. 2510.3-101 ("Plan Assets")) of a Plan, as certified by each beneficial owner in the form of Exhibit G, unless the beneficial owner provides the Trustee with an Opinion of Counsel acceptable to and in form and substance satisfactory to the Depositor, the Trustee and the Servicer to the effect that the purchase and holding of such Private Certificates is permissible under applicable law, will not constitute or result in any non-exempt prohibited transaction under Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code (or comparable provisions of any subsequent enactments) and will not subject the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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 Servicer, the Trustee or the Trust Fund. (ii) In the case of a Class A Certificate, Class M-1 Certificate, Class M-2 Certificate, Class M-3 Certificate, Class M-4 Certificate, Class M-5 Certificate, Class M-6 Certificate, Class M-7 Certificate, Class M-8 Certificate, Class M-9 Certificate or Class M-10 Certificate, each beneficial owner of such a Certificate or any interest therein shall be deemed to have represented, by virtue of its acquisition or holding of such Certificate or any interest therein, that either (A) it is not a Plan or using Plan Assets, (B) it has acquired and is holding such Certificate in reliance on the Underwriters' Exemption, and that it understands that there are certain conditions to the availability of the Underwriters' Exemption, including that such Certificate must be rated, at the time of purchase, not lower than "BBB-" (or its equivalent) by Fitch, S&P or Moody's and the Certificates are so rated, that it is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501(a)(1) of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and that it will obtain a representation from any transferee that such transferee is an accredited investor, or (C)(1) it is an insurance company, (2) the source of funds used to acquire or hold such Certificate or any interest therein is an "insurance company general account," as such term is defined in Prohibited Transaction Class Exemption ("PTCE") 95-60, and (3) the conditions in Sections I and III of PTCE 95-60 have been satisfied. (iii) Neither a certification nor an Opinion of Counsel shall be required in connection with (A) the initial transfer of any such Certificate by the Depositor to an Affiliate of the Depositor, (B) the transfer of any such Certificate to the issuer under the Indenture or the indenture trustee under the Indenture or (C) a transfer of any such Certificate from the issuer under the Indenture or the indenture trustee under the Indenture to the Depositor or an Affiliate of the Depositor (in which case such transferee shall be deemed to have represented that it is not 105
EX-10.1113th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 113th
purchasing with Plan Assets) and the Trustee shall be entitled to conclusively rely upon a representation (which, upon the request of the Trustee, shall be a written representation) from the Depositor of the status of such transferee as an affiliate of the Depositor. (iv) If any Certificate or any interest therein is acquired or held in violation of the provisions of this Section 5.02(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 such Certificate or any interest therein was effected in violation of the provisions of this Section 5.02(c) shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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 Trustee 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 Trustee 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 F-2) from the proposed Transferee, in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee, 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 5.02(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 a Responsible Officer of the Trustee 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 in the form 106
EX-10.1114th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 114th
attached hereto as Exhibit F-2 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 F-2) to the Trustee 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 Trustee 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 Trustee 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 Trustee as a condition to such registration. In addition, no Transfer of a Residual Certificate shall be made unless the Trustee 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 5.02(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 Trustee 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 5.02(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 5.02(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 Trustee shall have the right, but not the obligation, without notice to the holder or any prior holder of such Residual Certificate, to sell such Residual Certificate to a purchaser selected by the Trustee on such terms as the Trustee may choose. Such purported Transferee shall promptly endorse and deliver each Residual Certificate in accordance with the instructions of the Trustee. Such purchaser may be the Trustee itself or any Affiliate of the Trustee. The proceeds of such sale, net of the commissions (which may include commissions payable to the Trustee or its Affiliates), expenses and taxes due, if any, will be remitted by the Trustee 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 Trustee, and the Trustee shall not be liable to any Person having an Ownership Interest in a Residual Certificate as a result of its exercise of such discretion. 107
EX-10.1115th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 115th
(iv) The Trustee 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 accepted by the Trustee. (v) The provisions of this Section 5.02(d) set forth prior to this subsection (v) may be modified, added to or eliminated, provided that there shall have been delivered to the Trustee 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 Trustee, 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 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 Trustee maintained for such purpose pursuant to Section 8.12, the Trustee 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 Trustee maintained for such purpose pursuant to Section 8.12. Whenever any Certificates are so surrendered for exchange, the Trustee 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 Trustee) be duly endorsed by, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in the form satisfactory to the Trustee 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 two separate Certificates, each representing 108
EX-10.1116th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 116th
such Holder's respective Percentage Interest in the Class R-I Interest and the Class R-II 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 Trustee 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 Trustee in accordance with its customary procedures. SECTION 5.03 Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost or Stolen Certificates. If (i) any mutilated Certificate is surrendered to the Trustee, or the Trustee receives evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Certificate, and (ii) there is delivered to the Trustee such security or indemnity as may be required by it to save it harmless, then, in the absence of actual knowledge by the Trustee that such Certificate has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, the Trustee 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 but bearing a number not contemporaneously outstanding. Upon the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section, the Trustee 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 Trustee) 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 5.04 Persons Deemed Owners. Prior to due presentation of a Certificate for registration of transfer, the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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 Servicer, the Trustee or any agent of any of them shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

On or prior to the date of the first sale of any Private Certificate to an Independent third party, the Depositor shall provide to the Trustee a copy of any private placement memorandum or other disclosure document used by the Depositor in connection with the offer and sale of such Certificates. 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 Trustee, the Depositor promptly shall inform the Trustee of such event and shall deliver to the Trustee a copy of the private placement memorandum or disclosure document, as revised, amended or supplemented. The Trustee shall maintain at its Corporate Trust Office and shall make available free of charge during normal business hours for review by any Holder of a Certificate, a Certificate Owner or any Person identified to the Trustee as a prospective transferee of a Certificate, originals or copies of the following items: (i) in the case of a Holder, a Certificate Owner or prospective transferee of a Private Certificate, the related private placement memorandum or other disclosure document 109

ARTICLE VI THE DEPOSITOR AND THE SERVICER SECTION 6.01 Respective Liabilities of the Depositor and the Servicer. The Depositor and the Servicer each shall be liable in accordance herewith only to the extent of the obligations specifically imposed by this Agreement upon them in their respective capacities as Depositor and Servicer and undertaken hereunder by the Depositor and the Servicer herein. SECTION 6.02 Merger or Consolidation of the Depositor or the Servicer. Subject to the following paragraph, the Depositor will keep in full effect its existence, rights and franchises as a corporation under the laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation.

The Depositor and the Servicer each will obtain and preserve its qualification to do business as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction in which such qualification is or shall be necessary to protect the validity and enforceability of this Agreement, the Certificates or any of the Mortgage Loans and to perform its respective duties under this Agreement. The Depositor or the Servicer may be merged or consolidated with or into any Person, or transfer all or substantially all of its assets to any Person, in which case any Person resulting from any merger or consolidation to which the Depositor or the Servicer shall be a party, or any Person succeeding to the business of the Depositor or the Servicer, shall be the successor of the Depositor or the Servicer, as the case may be, hereunder, 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; provided, however, that the Rating Agencies' ratings of the Class A Certificates and the Mezzanine Certificates in effect immediately prior to such merger or consolidation will not be qualified, reduced or withdrawn as a result thereof (as evidenced by a letter to such effect from S&P and Fitch, with respect to their respective ratings).

Depositor or the Servicer shall be under any liability to the Trustee, 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, the Servicer or any such person against any breach of warranties, representations or covenants made herein, or against any specific liability imposed on the Servicer pursuant hereto, or against any liability which would otherwise be imposed by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of duties or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder. The Depositor, the Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Depositor or the 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, the Servicer and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Depositor or the Servicer shall be indemnified by the Trust Fund and held harmless against any loss, liability or expense (including reasonable legal fees and disbursements of counsel) incurred on their part that may be sustained in connection with, arising out of, or related to, any claim or legal action (including any pending or threatened claim or legal action) relating to this Agreement or the Certificates, other than any loss, liability or expense relating to any specific Mortgage Loan or Mortgage Loans (except as any such loss, liability or expense shall be otherwise reimbursable pursuant to this Agreement) or any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of duties hereunder or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder. Neither the Depositor nor the Servicer shall be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute or defend any legal action that is not incidental to its duties under this Agreement and that in its opinion may involve it in any expense or liability; provided, however, that the Depositor or the 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 shall be expenses, costs and liabilities of the Trust Fund, and the Depositor or the Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed therefor from the Custodial Account as and to the extent provided in Section 3.11, any such right of reimbursement being prior to the rights of the Certificateholders to receive any amount in the Custodial Account. Nothing in this Subsection 6.03(a) shall affect the Servicer's obligation to supervise, or to take such actions as are necessary to ensure, the servicing and administration of the Mortgage Loans pursuant to Subsection 3.01(a). (b) In taking or recommending any course of action pursuant to this Agreement, unless specifically required to do so pursuant to this Agreement, the Servicer shall not be required to investigate or make recommendations concerning potential liabilities which the Trust might incur as a result of such course of action by reason of the condition of the Mortgaged Properties but shall give notice to the Trustee if it has notice of such potential liabilities. SECTION 6.04 Limitation on Resignation of the Servicer. (a) The 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 or as provided in Section 6.04(c). Any such determination pursuant to the preceding sentence permitting the resignation of the Servicer shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect obtained at the expense of the Servicer and delivered to the Trustee. No resignation of the Servicer shall become 111
EX-10.1119th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 119th
effective until the Trustee or a successor servicer shall have assumed the 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, the Servicer shall not 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 the Servicer hereunder. The foregoing prohibition on assignment shall not prohibit the Servicer from designating a Sub-Servicer as payee of any indemnification amount payable to the Servicer hereunder; provided, however, that as provided in Section 3.06 hereof, 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. SECTION 6.05 Rights of the Depositor in Respect of the Servicer. The Servicer 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 Servicer (and any such Sub-Servicer) in respect of the Servicer's rights and obligations hereunder and access to officers of the Servicer (and those of any such Sub-Servicer) responsible for such obligations. Upon request, the 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 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 Servicer's written consent, except as required pursuant to this Agreement or to the extent that it is appropriate to do so (i) in working with legal counsel, auditors, taxing authorities or other governmental agencies, (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) in disclosure of any and all information that is or becomes publicly known, or information obtained by the Trustee from sources other than the Depositor or the Servicer, (iv) disclosure as required pursuant to this Agreement or (v) in 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 or the 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, and uses its best efforts to assure the confidentiality of any such disseminated non-public information. The Depositor may, but is not obligated to, enforce the obligations of the Servicer under this Agreement and may, but is not obligated to, perform, or cause a designee to perform, any defaulted obligation of the Servicer under this Agreement or exercise the rights of the Servicer under this Agreement; provided that the Servicer shall not 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 Servicer and is not obligated to supervise the performance of the Servicer under this Agreement or otherwise. 112

reorganization statute, make an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or voluntarily suspend payment of its obligations; or (vi) any failure by the Servicer of the Servicer Termination Test; or (vii) any failure of the Servicer to make any Advance on any Servicer Remittance Date required to be made from its own funds pursuant to Section 4.03 which continues unremedied until 12:00 p.m. New York time on the Business Day immediately following the Servicer Remittance Date. If a Servicer Event of Default described in clauses (i) through (vi) 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 Trustee may, and at the written direction of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 66% of Voting Rights, the Trustee shall, by notice in writing to the Servicer and to the Depositor, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer in its capacity as Servicer under this Agreement, to the extent permitted by law, in and to the 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 Servicer, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer in its capacity as Servicer under this Agreement in and to the Mortgage Loans and the proceeds thereof and the Trustee as successor Servicer, or another successor servicer appointed in accordance with Section 7.02, shall immediately make such Advance. On or after the receipt by the Servicer of such written notice, all authority and power of the Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Certificates (other than as a Holder of any Certificate) or the Mortgage Loans or otherwise, 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 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, provided, however, the parties acknowledge that notwithstanding the preceding sentence there may be a transition period, not to exceed 90 days, in order to effect the transfer of the Servicing obligations to the Trustee or other successor servicer. The 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 Servicer's functions under this Agreement, and to cooperate with the Trustee in effecting the termination of the Servicer's responsibilities and rights under this Agreement, including, without limitation, the transfer within one Business Day to the Trustee for administration by it of all cash amounts which at the time shall be or should have been credited by the Servicer to the Custodial Account held by or on behalf of the Servicer, the Certificate Account or any REO Account or Servicing Account held by or on behalf of the Servicer or thereafter be received with respect to the Mortgage Loans or any REO Property serviced by the Servicer (provided, however, that the 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 Advances, Servicing Advances or otherwise, and shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Section 6.03, notwithstanding any such termination, with respect to events occurring prior to such termination). For purposes of this Section 7.01, the Trustee shall not be deemed to 114
EX-10.1122nd Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 122nd
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 and such notice references the Certificates, the Trust Fund or this Agreement. SECTION 7.02 Trustee to Act; Appointment of Successor. (a) (1) On and after the time the Servicer receives a notice of termination in accordance with Section 13.05 hereof, the Trustee, or such other person appointed by the Trustee pursuant to this paragraph, shall separately assume and become the successor in all respects to the Servicer in its capacity as 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 Trustee (except for any representations or warranties of the Servicer under this Agreement, the responsibilities, duties and liabilities contained in Section 2.05 and the obligation to deposit amounts in respect of losses pursuant to Section 3.12) by the terms and provisions hereof including, without limitation, the Servicer's obligations to make Advances pursuant to Section 4.03; provided, however, that if the Trustee is prohibited by law or regulation from obligating itself to make advances regarding delinquent mortgage loans, then the Trustee shall not be obligated to make Advances pursuant to Section 4.03; and provided further, that any failure to perform such duties or responsibilities caused by the Servicer's failure to provide information required by Section 7.01 shall not be considered a default by the Trustee as successor to the Servicer hereunder. As compensation therefor, the Trustee shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee and all funds relating to the Mortgage Loans to which the Servicer would have been entitled if it had continued to act hereunder. Notwithstanding the above and subject to Section 7.02(a)(2) below, the Trustee may, if it shall be unwilling to so act, or shall, if it is unable to so act or if it is prohibited by law from making advances regarding delinquent mortgage loans or if the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 66% of the Voting Rights so request in writing to the Trustee promptly appoint or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint, a Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac approved mortgage loan servicing institution acceptable to each Rating Agency without qualification, withdrawal or downgrading of the ratings then assigned to any of the Certificates and having a net worth of not less than $10,000,000, as the successor to the Servicer under this Agreement in the assumption of all or any part of the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of the Servicer under this Agreement. All Servicing Transfer Costs shall be paid by the predecessor Servicer upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs (provided, that if the Trustee is the predecessor Servicer by reason of this Section 7.02, such costs shall be paid by the Servicer preceding the Trustee as successor servicer), and if such predecessor or initial Servicer, as applicable, defaults in its obligation to pay such costs, such costs shall be paid by the successor Servicer or the Trustee (in which case the successor Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, shall be entitled to reimbursement therefor from the assets of the Trust Fund). (2) No appointment of a successor to the Servicer under this Agreement shall be effective until the assumption by the successor of all of the 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; 115
EX-10.1123rd Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 123rd
provided, however, that no such compensation shall be in excess of that permitted the 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 Servicer under this Agreement, the Trustee shall act in such capacity as hereinabove provided. SECTION 7.03 Notification to Certificateholders. (a) Upon any termination of the Servicer pursuant to Section 7.01 above or any appointment of a successor to the Servicer pursuant to Section 7.02 above, the Trustee shall give prompt written notice thereof to Certificateholders at their respective addresses appearing in the Certificate Register. (b) Not later than the later of 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 five 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 shall have been cured or waived. SECTION 7.04 Waiver of Servicer Events of Default. Holders representing at least 66% of the Voting Rights evidenced by all Classes of Certificates affected by any default or Servicer Event of Default hereunder may waive such default or Servicer Event of Default; provided, however, that a default or Servicer Event of Default under clause (i) or (vii) of Section 7.01 may be waived only by all of the Holders of the Regular Certificates. Upon any such waiver of a default or Servicer Event of Default, such default or 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 or Servicer Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereon except to the extent expressly so waived. ARTICLE VIII CONCERNING THE TRUSTEE SECTION 8.01 Duties of Trustee. (a) The Trustee, prior to the occurrence of a Servicer Event of Default and after the curing of all Servicer Events of Default which may have occurred, undertakes to perform such duties and only such duties as are specifically set forth in this Agreement. During a Servicer Event of Default (which has not been cured or waived), 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 their 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. (b) The Trustee, upon receipt of all resolutions, certificates, statements, opinions, reports, documents, orders or other instruments furnished to the Trustee which are specifically required to be furnished pursuant to any provision of this Agreement, shall examine them to determine whether they conform on their face to the requirements of this Agreement. If any such instrument is found not to conform on its face to the requirements of this Agreement in a 116
EX-10.1124th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 124th
material manner, the Trustee shall take such action as it deems appropriate to have the instrument corrected, and if the instrument is not corrected to its satisfaction, will provide notice thereof to the Certificateholders. (c) No provision of this Agreement shall be construed to relieve the Trustee 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 Servicer Event of Default, and after the curing of all such Servicer Events of Default which may have occurred, the duties and obligations of the Trustee shall be determined solely by the express provisions of this Agreement, the Trustee shall not 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 and, in the absence of bad faith on the part of the Trustee, the Trustee 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 that conform to the requirements of this Agreement; (ii) The Trustee shall not be personally liable for an error of judgment made in good faith by a Responsible Officer or Responsible Officers of the Trustee unless it shall be proved that the Trustee was negligent in ascertaining the pertinent facts; and (iii) The Trustee shall not be personally 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 exercising any trust or power conferred upon it, under this Agreement. (d) The Trustee shall timely pay, from its own funds, the amount of any and all federal, state and local taxes imposed on the Trust Fund or its assets or transactions including, without limitation, (A) "prohibited transaction" penalty taxes as defined in Section 860F of the Code, if, when and as the same shall be due and payable, (B) any tax on contributions to a Trust REMIC after the Closing Date imposed by Section 860G(d) of the Code and (C) any tax on "net income from foreclosure property" as defined in Section 860G(c) of the Code, but only if such taxes arise out of a breach by the Trustee of its obligations hereunder, which breach constitutes negligence or misconduct of the Trustee. SECTION 8.02 Certain Matters Affecting the Trustee. (a) Except as otherwise provided in Section 8.01: (i) The Trustee may request and conclusively rely upon and shall be fully 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; 117
EX-10.1125th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 125th
(ii) The Trustee may consult with counsel and 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 Opinion of Counsel; (iii) The Trustee shall not 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 security or indemnity reasonably 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 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) The Trustee shall not be personally 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 Servicer Event of Default hereunder and after the curing of all Servicer Events of Default which may have occurred, the Trustee shall not 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 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 not reasonably assured to the Trustee by such Certificateholders, the Trustee may require indemnity reasonably 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, accountants or attorneys, and the Trustee shall not be responsible for any misconduct or negligence on the part of any agents, accountants or attorneys appointed with due care by it hereunder; (vii) The Trustee shall have no obligation to invest and reinvest any cash held in the absence of timely and specific written investment direction from the Servicer or the Depositor. In no event shall the Trustee be liable for the selection of investments or for investment losses incurred thereon. The Trustee shall have no liability in respect of losses incurred as a result of the liquidation of any investment incurred as a result of the liquidation of any investment prior to its stated maturity or the failure of the Servicer or the Depositor to provide timely written investment direction; and 118
EX-10.1126th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 126th
(viii) In order to comply with its duties under the USA Patriot Act of 2001, the Trustee shall obtain and verify certain information and documentation from the other parties to this Agreement including, but not limited to, each such party's name, address and other identifying information. (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 the name of the Trustee for the benefit of all the Holders of such Certificates, subject to the provisions of this Agreement. SECTION 8.03 Trustee Not Liable for Certificates or Mortgage Loans. The recitals contained herein and in the Certificates (other than the signature of the Trustee, the authentication of the Certificate Registrar on the Certificates, the acknowledgments of the Trustee contained in Article II and the representations and warranties of the Trustee in Section 8.13) shall be taken as the statements of the Depositor and the Trustee assumes no responsibility for their correctness. The Trustee makes no representations or warranties as to the validity or sufficiency of this Agreement (other than as specifically set forth with respect to such party in Section 8.13) or of the Certificates (other than the signature of the Trustee and authentication of the Certificate Registrar on the Certificates) or of any Mortgage Loan or related document or of MERS or the MERS(R) System. The Trustee 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 Servicer in respect of the Mortgage Loans or deposited in or withdrawn from the Custodial Account by the Servicer, other than any funds held by or on behalf of the Trustee in accordance with Section 3.10, subject to Section 8.01. SECTION 8.04 Trustee May Own Certificates. The Trustee in its individual capacity or any other capacity may become the owner or pledgee of Certificates with the same rights it would have if it were not Trustee. SECTION 8.05 Trustee's Fees and Expenses. (a) The Trustee shall withdraw from the Certificate Account on each Distribution Date and pay to itself the Trustee Fee. The Trustee, or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee shall be indemnified by the Trust Fund and held harmless against any loss, liability or expense (not including expenses, disbursements and advances incurred or made by the Trustee including the compensation and the expenses and disbursements of its agents and counsel, in the ordinary course of the Trustee's performance in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement) incurred by the Trustee in connection with any Servicer Event of Default (not including expenses, disbursements and advances incurred or made by the Trustee in its capacity as successor Servicer), default, 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 obligations and duties under this Agreement or the Cap Contracts, other than any loss, liability or expense (i) resulting from a breach of the Servicer's obligations and duties under this Agreement (for which the Servicer indemnifies pursuant to Sections 8.05(b) and 10.03(b)), (ii) for the expenses of preparing and filing Tax Returns pursuant to Section 10.01(d) 119
EX-10.1127th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 127th
or (iii) any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of its willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of its duties hereunder or by reason of reckless disregard of its respective obligations and duties hereunder. Any amounts payable to the Trustee, or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee in respect of the indemnification provided by this paragraph (a), or pursuant to any other right of reimbursement from the Trust Fund that the Trustee, or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee, may have hereunder in its capacity as such, may be withdrawn by the Trustee from the Certificate Account at any time. (b) The Servicer agrees to indemnify the Trustee from, and hold it harmless against, any loss, liability or expense (including reasonable legal fees and disbursements of counsel) resulting from a breach of the Servicer's obligations and duties under this Agreement. Such indemnity shall survive the termination or discharge of this Agreement and the resignation or removal of the Trustee. Any payment hereunder made by the Servicer to the Trustee shall be from the Servicer's own funds, without reimbursement from the Trust Fund therefor. The provisions of this Section 8.05 shall survive the termination of this Agreement or the earlier resignation or removal of the Trustee. SECTION 8.06 Eligibility Requirements for Trustee. The Trustee hereunder shall at all times be a corporation or an association (other than the Depositor, the Seller, the 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 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 condition so published. Any successor trustee appointed pursuant to Section 8.07 shall have a sufficient rating so as to maintain the then-current ratings of the Certificates. In case at any time the Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of this Section, the Trustee shall resign immediately in the manner and with the effect specified in Section 8.07. SECTION 8.07 Resignation and Removal of the Trustee. The Trustee may at any time resign and be discharged from the trust hereby created by giving written notice thereof to the Depositor, the Servicer and the Certificateholders. Upon receiving such notice of resignation of the Trustee, the Depositor shall promptly appoint a successor trustee by written instrument, in duplicate, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the resigning Trustee and one copy to the successor trustee. A copy of such instrument shall be delivered to the Certificateholders, the Trustee and the Servicer by the Depositor. If no successor trustee shall have been so appointed and have accepted appointment within 30 days after the giving of such notice of resignation or removal, the Trustee may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor trustee. If at any time the Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of Section 8.06 and shall fail to resign after written request therefor by the Depositor, or if at any 120
EX-10.1128th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 128th
time the Trustee shall become incapable of acting, or shall be adjudged bankrupt or insolvent, or a receiver of the Trustee or of its property shall be appointed, or any public officer shall take charge or control of the Trustee or of its property or affairs for the purpose of rehabilitation, conservation or liquidation, then the Depositor may remove the Trustee and appoint a successor trustee by written instrument, in duplicate, which instrument shall be delivered to the Trustee so removed and to the successor trustee. A copy of such instrument shall be delivered to the Certificateholders and the Servicer by the Depositor. The Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 66% of the Voting Rights may at any time remove the Trustee and appoint a successor trustee 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 so removed and one complete set to the successor so appointed. A copy of such instrument shall be delivered to the Certificateholders and the Servicer by the Depositor. Any resignation or removal of the Trustee and appointment of a successor trustee pursuant to any of the provisions of this Section shall not become effective until acceptance of appointment by the successor trustee as provided in Section 8.08. Any costs associated with removing and replacing the Trustee shall be payable by the Trustee being removed or replaced if such Trustee is being removed or replaced for cause. SECTION 8.08 Successor Trustee. Any successor trustee appointed as provided in Section 8.07 shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Depositor and to its predecessor trustee an instrument accepting such appointment hereunder, and thereupon the resignation or removal of the predecessor trustee shall become effective and such successor trustee 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 herein. The predecessor trustee shall deliver to the successor trustee all Mortgage Files and related documents and statements, as well as all moneys, held by it hereunder (other than any Mortgage Files at the time held by a custodian, which custodian shall become the agent of any successor trustee hereunder), and the Depositor and the predecessor trustee 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 all such rights, powers, duties and obligations. No successor trustee shall accept appointment as provided in this Section unless at the time of such acceptance such successor trustee shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 8.06 and the appointment of such successor trustee shall not result in a downgrading of any Class of Certificates by either Rating Agency, as evidenced by a letter from each Rating Agency. Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor trustee 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 10 days after acceptance of appointment by the successor trustee, the successor trustee shall cause such notice to be mailed at the expense of the Depositor. 121

SECTION 8.09 Merger or Consolidation of Trustee. Any corporation or association into which the Trustee 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 shall be a party, or any corporation or association succeeding to the business of the Trustee shall be the successor of the Trustee hereunder, provided such corporation or association shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 8.06, 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 8.10 Appointment of Co-Trustee or Separate Trustee.

Any such co-trustee or separate trustee shall be subject to the written approval of the Servicer. If the Servicer shall not have joined in such appointment within 15 days after the receipt by it of a request so to do, or in case a Servicer Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Trustee alone shall have the power to make such appointment. No co-trustee or separate trustee hereunder shall be required to meet the terms of eligibility as a successor trustee under Section 8.06 hereunder and no notice to Holders of Certificates of the appointment of co-trustee(s) or separate trustee(s) shall be required under Section 8.08 hereof. The Servicer shall be responsible for the fees of any co-trustee or separate trustee appointed under this Section 8.10. (b) In the case of any appointment of a co-trustee or separate trustee pursuant to this Section 8.10, 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 the 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. (c) 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 VIII. 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 122

EX-10.1135th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 135th
Counsel, addressed to the Trustee (at the expense of the party seeking to take such action but in no event at the expense of the Trustee) 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 shall the Servicer 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 Servicer 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 Servicer 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 Servicer 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; provided that the Servicer may conclusively rely on such writing and shall incur no liability for its action or failure to act in accordance with such writing. The Trustee may consult with counsel to make such written advice, and the cost of same shall be borne 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. At all times as may be required by the Code, the Trustee will ensure that substantially all of the assets of REMIC I will consist of "qualified mortgages" as defined in Section 860G(a)(3) of the Code and "permitted investments" as defined in Section 860G(a)(5) of the Code, to the extent such obligations are within the Trustee's control and not otherwise inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement. (g) In the event that any tax is imposed on "prohibited transactions" of any Trust 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 10.03 hereof, if such tax arises out of or results from a breach by the Trustee of any of its obligations under this Article X, (ii) to the Servicer pursuant to Section 10.03 hereof, if such tax arises out of or results from a breach by the Servicer of any of its obligations under Article III or this Article X, or (iii) in all other cases, against amounts on deposit in the Certificate Account and shall be paid by withdrawal therefrom. (h) On or before April 15 of each calendar year, commencing April 15, 2007, the Trustee shall deliver to each Rating Agency an Officer's Certificate of the Trustee stating the Trustee's compliance with this Article X. (i) The Trustee 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. (j) Following the Startup Day, neither the Servicer 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 128
EX-10.1136th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 136th
an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that the inclusion of such assets in the Trust Fund will not cause any Trust REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any Certificates are outstanding or subject any Trust REMIC to any tax under the REMIC Provisions or other applicable provisions of federal, state and local law or ordinances. (k) Neither the Trustee nor the Servicer shall enter into any arrangement by which any Trust REMIC will receive a fee or other compensation for services nor knowingly permit any Trust 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.

SECTION 10.03 Servicer and Trustee Indemnification. (a) The Trustee agrees to indemnify the Trust Fund, the Depositor and the Servicer for any taxes and costs including, without limitation, any reasonable attorneys' fees imposed on or incurred by the Trust Fund, the Depositor or the Servicer as a result of a breach of the Trustee's covenants set forth in this Article X.

SECTION 13.08 Article and Section References. All article and section references used in this Agreement, unless otherwise provided, are to articles and sections in this Agreement. SECTION 13.09 Grant of Security Interest. It is the express intent of the parties hereto that the conveyance of the Mortgage Loans by the Depositor to the Trustee, be, and be construed as, a sale of the Mortgage Loans by the Depositor and not a pledge of the Mortgage Loans to secure a debt or other obligation of the Depositor. However, in the event that, notwithstanding the aforementioned intent of the parties, the Mortgage Loans are held to be property of the Depositor, then, (a) it is the express intent of the parties that such conveyance be deemed a pledge of the Mortgage Loans by the Depositor to the Trustee to secure a debt or other obligation of the Depositor and (b) (1) this Agreement shall also be deemed to be a security agreement within the meaning of Articles 8 and 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect from time to time in the State of New York; (2) the conveyance provided for in Section 2.01 hereof shall be deemed to be a grant by the Depositor to the Trustee of a security interest in all of the Depositor's right, title and interest in and to (i) such Mortgage Loans and all amounts payable to the holders of the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms thereof and all proceeds of the conversion voluntary or involuntary, of the foregoing into cash, instruments, securities or other property and Prepayment Charges related thereto as from time to time are subject to this Agreement, together with the Mortgage Files relating thereto, and together with all collections thereon and proceeds thereof; (ii) any REO Property, together with all collections thereon and proceeds thereof; (iii) the Depositor's rights with respect to the Mortgage Loans under all insurance policies required to be maintained pursuant to this Agreement and any proceeds thereof; (iv) the Depositor's rights under the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement (including any security interest created thereby); (v) the Custodial Account (other than any amounts representing any Servicer Prepayment Charge Payment Amount), the Certificate Account (other 142
EX-10.1150th Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 150th
than any amounts representing any Servicer Prepayment Charge Payment Amount) and any REO Account, and such assets that are deposited therein from time to time and any investments thereof, together with any and all income, proceeds and payments with respect thereto; (vi) the Net WAC Rate Carryover Reserve Account; and (vii) the Depositor's rights under the Cap Contracts and all payments received under the Cap Contracts; (3) the obligations secured by such security agreement shall be deemed to be all of the Depositor's obligations under this Agreement, including the obligation to provide to the Certificateholders the benefits of this Agreement relating to the Mortgage Loans and the Trust Fund; and (4) notifications to persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from persons holding such property, shall be deemed notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, financial intermediaries, bailees or agents (as applicable) of the Trustee for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law. Accordingly, the Depositor hereby grants to the Trustee 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. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereto intend the conveyance pursuant to Section 2.01 to be a true, absolute and unconditional sale of the Mortgage Loans and assets constituting the Trust Fund by the Depositor to the Trustee. SECTION 13.10 Intention of Parties. It is the express intent of the parties hereto that the conveyance of the Mortgage Notes, Mortgages, assignments of Mortgages, title insurance policies and any modifications, extensions and/or assumption agreements and private mortgage insurance policies relating to the Mortgage Loans by the Seller to the Depositor, and by the Depositor to the Trustee be, and be construed as, an absolute sale thereof to the Depositor or the Trustee, as applicable. It is, further, not the intention of the parties that such conveyance be deemed a pledge thereof by the Seller to the Depositor, or by the Depositor to the Trustee. However, in the event that, notwithstanding the intent of the parties, such assets are held to be the property of the Seller or the Depositor, as applicable, or if for any other reason the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement or this Agreement is held or deemed to create a security interest in such assets, then (i) the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement and this Agreement shall each be deemed to be a security agreement within the meaning of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of New York and (ii) the conveyance provided for in the Mortgage Loan Purchase Agreement from the Seller to the Depositor, and the conveyance provided for in this Agreement from the Depositor to the Trustee, shall be deemed to be an assignment and a grant by the Seller or the Depositor, as applicable, for the benefit of the Certificateholders, of a security interest in all of the assets that constitute the Trust Fund, whether now owned or hereafter acquired. The Depositor for the benefit of the Certificateholders shall, to the extent consistent with this Agreement, take such actions as may be necessary to ensure that, if this Agreement were deemed to create a security interest in the assets of the Trust Fund, such security interest would be deemed to be a perfected security interest of first priority under applicable law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of the Agreement. SECTION 13.11 Assignment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, except as provided pursuant to Section 6.02, this Agreement may not be assigned by the Servicer or the Depositor. 143

Any out-of-pocket expense incident to the exercise by the Depositor or the Trustee of any right under this Section 13.12 shall be borne by the party requesting such inspection, subject to such party's right to reimbursement hereunder (in the case of the Trustee, pursuant to Section 8.05 hereof). SECTION 13.13 Certificates Nonassessable and Fully Paid. It is the intention of the Depositor that Certificateholders shall not be personally liable for obligations of the Trust Fund, that the interests in the Trust Fund represented by the Certificates shall be nonassessable for any reason whatsoever, and that the Certificates, upon due authentication thereof by the Trustee pursuant to this Agreement, are and shall be deemed fully paid.

EX-10.1153rd Page of 355TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 153rd
including for purposes of fulfilling its reporting obligations under this Section 14.01, on the accuracy and completeness of any information provided to it by the applicable subservicer.

(e) The Servicer shall permit the Class CE Certificateholder to conduct an on-site review and evaluation of the Servicer's operations as they relate to the Mortgage Loans no more than annually, unless circumstances warrant special review. Such review and evaluation will be conducted upon at least 30 days written notice to the Servicer by the Class CE Certificateholder, and shall be conducted at the Class CE Certificateholder's expense. The review is intended to benefit the Servicer, as well as to assist the Class CE Certificateholder in adjusting its monitoring approach to fit the default procedures in place.

During the course of the on-site evaluation, the Servicer will make available to the Class CE Certificateholder access to the Servicer's policies and procedures regarding the management and liquidation of defaulted Mortgage Loans. The written findings of such review and evaluation will be presented to the Servicer for review and comment. Other than a comfort letter to the Depositor summarizing the review and evaluation of the Servicer, the Class CE Certificateholder will not divulge the written findings of such review to any party without the prior written consent of the Servicer.

(b) The Class CE Certificateholder may provide the Servicer with advice regarding the management of specific defaulted Mortgage Loans.

The advice may include comparable analysis of the performance of the Mortgage Loans in the Trust Fund with similar mortgage loans serviced by other mortgage loan servicers. Such advice also may take the form of benchmark comparisons that identify and interpret the Servicer's strengths and weaknesses relative to similar, unidentified servicers in the industry.

Under no circumstances will the Class CE Certificateholder divulge any materials confidential of the Servicer, whether a party to this Agreement or not, or the details of any Servicer's proprietary system or approaches. 146

(e) The Servicer's obligations under this Article XIV shall terminate upon the termination of the Trust Fund pursuant to Section 9.01.

As provided in the Agreement, withdrawals from the Custodial Account and the Certificate Account may be made from time to time for purposes other than distributions to Certificateholders, such purposes including reimbursement of advances made, or certain expenses incurred, with respect to the Mortgage Loans. The Agreement permits, with certain exceptions therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee, and the rights of the Certificateholders under the Agreement at any time by the Depositor, the Servicer and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of Certificates entitled to at least 66% of the Voting Rights. Any such consent by the Holder of this Certificate shall be conclusive and binding on such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Certificate and of any Certificate issued upon the transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent is made upon this Certificate. 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 Trustee 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 Trustee 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. Each beneficial owner of this Certificate or any interest therein shall be deemed to have represented, by virtue of its acquisition or holding of such Certificate or any interest therein, that either (A) it is not an "employee benefit plan" as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended ("ERISA"), that is subject to Title I of ERISA, any "plan" as defined in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), that is subject to Section 4975 of the Code or any entity deemed to hold plan assets of any of the foregoing, (B) it has acquired and is holding this Certificate in reliance on the underwriters' exemption, and that it understands that there are certain conditions to the availability of the underwriters' exemption, including that this Certificate must be rated, at A-1-3

the time of purchase, not lower than "BBB-" (or its equivalent) by Fitch, S&P or Moody's and the Certificate is so rated, that it is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501(a)(1) of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and that it will obtain a representation from any transferee that such transferee is an accredited investor, or (C)(1) it is an insurance company, (2) the source of funds used to acquire or hold this Certificate or any interest therein is an "insurance company general account," as such term is defined in Prohibited Transaction Class Exemption ("PTCE") 95-60, and (3) the conditions in Sections I and III of PTCE 95-60 have been satisfied. If this Certificate or any interest therein is acquired or held in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement, the next preceding permitted beneficial owner will be treated as the beneficial owner of this Certificate retroactive to the date of transfer to the purported beneficial owner. Any purported beneficial owner whose acquisition or holding of any this Certificate or any interest therein was effected in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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. 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 Trustee 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 Servicer, the Trustee and any agent of the Depositor, the Servicer or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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 Trustee 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 and REO Property 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 10% of the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date.

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.

If this Certificate or any interest therein is acquired or held in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement, the next preceding permitted beneficial owner will be treated as the beneficial owner of this Certificate retroactive to the date of transfer to the purported beneficial owner. Any purported beneficial owner whose acquisition or holding of any this Certificate or any interest therein was effected in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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. 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 Trustee 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 Servicer, the Trustee and any agent of the Depositor, the Servicer or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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 Trustee 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 and REO Property 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 10% of the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date.

If this Certificate or any interest therein is acquired or held in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement, the next preceding permitted beneficial owner will be treated as the beneficial owner of this Certificate retroactive to the date of transfer to the purported beneficial owner. Any purported beneficial owner whose acquisition or holding of any this Certificate or any interest therein was effected in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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. 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 Trustee 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 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 10% of the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date.

If this Certificate or any interest therein is acquired or held in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement, the next preceding permitted beneficial owner will be treated as the beneficial owner of this Certificate retroactive to the date of transfer to the purported beneficial owner. Any purported beneficial owner whose acquisition or holding of any this Certificate or any interest therein was effected in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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. 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 Trustee 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 Servicer, the Trustee and any agent of the Depositor, the Servicer or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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 Trustee 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 and REO Property 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 10% of the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date.

Any such consent by the Holder of this Certificate shall be conclusive and binding on such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Certificate and of any Certificate issued upon the transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent is made upon this Certificate. 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 Trustee 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 Trustee 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. Each beneficial owner of this Certificate or any interest therein shall be deemed to have represented, by virtue of its acquisition or holding of such Certificate or any interest therein, that either (A) it is not an "employee benefit plan" as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended ("ERISA"), that is subject to Title I of ERISA, any "plan" as defined in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), that is subject to Section 4975 of the Code or any entity deemed to hold plan assets of any of the foregoing, (B) it has acquired and is holding this Certificate in reliance on the underwriters' exemption, and that it understands that there are certain conditions to the availability of the underwriters' exemption, including that this Certificate must be rated, at A-13-4

the time of purchase, not lower than "BBB-" (or its equivalent) by Fitch, S&P or Moody's and the Certificate is so rated, that it is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501(a)(1) of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and that it will obtain a representation from any transferee that such transferee is an accredited investor, or (C)(1) it is an insurance company, (2) the source of funds used to acquire or hold this Certificate or any interest therein is an "insurance company general account," as such term is defined in Prohibited Transaction Class Exemption ("PTCE") 95-60, and (3) the conditions in Sections I and III of PTCE 95-60 have been satisfied. If this Certificate or any interest therein is acquired or held in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement, the next preceding permitted beneficial owner will be treated as the beneficial owner of this Certificate retroactive to the date of transfer to the purported beneficial owner. Any purported beneficial owner whose acquisition or holding of any this Certificate or any interest therein was effected in violation of the provisions of Section 5.02(c) of the Agreement shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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. 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 Trustee 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 Servicer, the Trustee and any agent of the Depositor, the Servicer or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee 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 Trustee 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 and REO Property 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 10% of the aggregate Stated Principal Balance of the Mortgage Loans as of the Cut-off Date.
