Additional Rights and Remedies of Grantee
5.1 Rights Upon an Event of Default.

Grantor also agrees that any of the foregoing rights and remedies of Grantee may be exercised at any time upon the occurrence of an Event of Default independently of the exercise of any other such rights and remedies, and Grantee may continue to exercise any or all such rights and remedies until the Event(s) of Default are cured or waived or until foreclosure and the conveyance of the Premises or until the Secured Obligations are satisfied or paid in full and all of Grantor’ commitments are terminated.
5.2 Appointment of Receiver. Upon the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, Grantee as a matter of right shall be entitled to the appointment of a receiver or receivers for all or any part of the Premises, to take possession of and to operate the Premises, and to collect the rents, issues, profits, and income thereof, all expenses of which shall become Secured Obligations, whether such receivership be incident to a proposed sale (or sales) of such property or otherwise, and without regard to the value of the Premises or the solvency of any Person or Persons liable for the payment of any Secured Obligations. Nothing herein is to be construed to deprive Grantee of any other right, remedy or privilege it may have under the law to have a receiver appointed. Any money advanced by Grantee in connection with any such receivership shall be a demand obligation (which obligation Grantor hereby promises to pay) owing by Grantor to Grantee pursuant to this Security Instrument.
5.3 Waivers. No waiver of any Event of Default shall at any time thereafter be held to be a waiver of any rights of Grantee stated anywhere in the Note or this Security Instrument, nor shall any waiver of a prior Event of Default operate to waive any subsequent Event(s) of Default. All remedies provided in Note and this Security Instrument are cumulative and may, at the election of Grantee, be exercised alternatively, successively, or in any manner and are in addition to any other rights provided by law.
5.4 Protection of Premises. If Grantor fails to perform the covenants and agreements contained in this Security Instrument, and such failure continues beyond any applicable grace, notice and cure periods, except in the case of an emergency in which event Grantee may act immediately, then Grantee may take such actions, including, but not limited to, disbursements of such sums, as Grantee in its sole reasonable discretion deems necessary to protect Grantee’s interest in the Premises.
Additional Rights of Grantor
6.1 Despite anything in this Security Instrument or the Note to the contrary:
(a) Grantor shall have the right to obtain from Grantee partial releases of this Security Instrument with regard to any portion of the Premises upon payment to Grantee of that percentage of the then unpaid principal balance of the Note equal to the number of acres of land within the Land being released divided by the number of acres of land within the Land then remaining encumbered by this Security Instrument. Any prepayment made hereunder shall be credited toward the next payment due under the Note and shall reduce such payment. In addition, if the Grantor is required to dedicate or grant any portion of the Premises to any public entity during the development process, Grantee, upon written request by Grantor, shall release from this Security Instrument any such portion of the Premises dedicated or granted to the public entity without any payment on the Note.
(b) Upon written request by Grantor, Grantee agrees to subordinate the lien of this Security Instrument to the lien or liens of a loan or loans, provided that the proceeds of such loan or loans are used solely to construct (including without limitation design, approval, financing and other “soft” costs associated therewith), within or serving the Land, subdivision infrastructure or subdivision improvements that are required by a governmental authority with proper jurisdiction as a condition of platting or development approval or that are necessary or desirable to Grantor to fully develop a single family residential development on the Land.

7.10 Saving Clause. In the event of any inconsistencies between this Section and any of the other terms and provisions of this Security Instrument, the terms and provisions of this Section shall control and be binding. Grantor is aware of the provisions of Section 58-6-5, New Mexico Statutes Annotated, which, to the extent, if any, they apply to this transaction, provide that “A contract, promise or commitment to loan money or to grant, extend or renew credit or any modification thereof, in any amount greater than twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000), not primarily for personal, family or household purpose, made by a financial institution shall not be enforceable unless in writing and signed by the party to be charged or that party’s authorized representative. . . .” To the extent, if at all, a court of competent jurisdiction determines that NMSA 1978 § 56-7-1 applies to any indemnification provisions in this Security Instrument, including certain types of insurance coverage as set forth in NMSA 1978 § 56-7-1, such provisions shall not apply to or extend to liability, claims, damages, losses or expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of bodily injury to persons or damage to property caused by or resulting from, in whole or in part, the negligence, act or omission of the indemnitee or additional insured, as the case may be, its officers, employees or agents and shall further be limited, if required, by the provisions of NMSA 1978 § 56-7-1B.
PROVIDED ALWAYS, and it is the intent and meaning of Grantor and Grantee, that if the Secured Obligations shall be fully and finally paid and discharged, this Security Instrument and all other commitments are terminated, then this Security Instrument shall cease and be void, otherwise it shall remain in full force and virtue.
