So long as no Event of Default shall exist, however, and so long as Mortgagor is not in default in the performance of any obligation, covenant or agreement contained in the Leases, Mortgagor shall have a license (which license shall terminate automatically and without notice upon the occurrence of an Event of Default or a default by Mortgagor under the Leases) to collect, but not prior to accrual, all Rents.

Section 2.3 Security Agreement, Fixture Filing and Financing Statement.
This Mortgage creates a security interest in the Personalty, and, to the extent the Personalty is not real property, this Mortgage constitutes a security agreement from Mortgagor to Mortgagee under the Uniform Commercial Code of the State. Notwithstanding anything herein or in any other Loan Documents to the contrary, this Mortgage does not grant to Mortgagee a security interest in any Movable Personal Property. In addition to all of its other rights under this Mortgage and otherwise, Mortgagee shall have all of the rights of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code of the State, as in effect from time to time, or under the Uniform Commercial Code in force from time to time in any other state to the extent the same is applicable Law. This Mortgage shall be effective as a financing statement filed as a fixture filing with respect to all fixtures included within the Property and is to be filed for record in the land evidence records of each city or town where any part of the Property (including such fixtures) is situated. This Mortgage shall also be effective as a financing statement with respect to any other Property as to which a security interest may be perfected by the filing of a financing statement and may be filed as such in any appropriate filing or recording office. The respective mailing addresses of Mortgagor and Mortgagee are set forth in the opening paragraph of this Mortgage. A carbon, photographic or other reproduction of this Mortgage or any other financing statement relating to this Mortgage shall be sufficient as a financing statement for any of the purposes referred to in this Section. Mortgagor hereby irrevocably authorizes Mortgagee at any time and from time to time to file any initial financing statements, amendments thereto and continuation statements as authorized by applicable Law, reasonably required by Mortgagee to establish or maintain the validity, perfection and priority of the security interests granted in this Mortgage. The foregoing authorization includes Mortgagors irrevocable authorization for Mortgagee at any time and from time to time to file any initial financing statements and amendments thereto that indicate the Personalty (a) as all assets of Mortgagor or words of similar effect, but excluding any Movable Personal Property, regardless of whether any particular asset comprised in the Personalty falls within the scope of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State or the jurisdiction where the initial financing statement or amendment is filed, or (b) as being of an equal or lesser scope or with greater detail.
Section 2.4 Release of Mortgage and Termination of Assignments and Financing Statements.
If and when Mortgagor has paid and performed all of the Obligations, and no further advances are to be made under the Loan Agreement, Mortgagee will provide a discharge of the Property and a release of the lien of this Mortgage and termination statements for filed financing statements, if any, to Mortgagor. Mortgagor shall be responsible for the recordation of such release and the payment of any recording and filing costs. Upon the recording of such release and the filing of such termination statements, the absolute assignments set forth in Section 2.2 shall automatically terminate and become null and void.

Mortgagor makes the following representations and warranties to Mortgagee:
Section 3.1 Title to Real Property.
Mortgagor (a) owns good and marketable fee simple title to the Real Property, (b) owns all of the beneficial and equitable interest in and to the Real Property, and (c) is lawfully seized and possessed of the Real Property. Mortgagor has the right and authority to mortgage and convey the Real Property and does hereby mortgage and convey the Real Property with general warranty to Mortgagee. The Real Property is subject to no Encumbrances other than the Permitted Encumbrances.
Section 3.2 Title to Other Property.
Mortgagor has good title to the Personalty, and the Personalty is not subject to any Encumbrance other than the Permitted Encumbrances. None of the Leases, Rents, Design and Construction Documents, or Contracts of Sale are subject to any Encumbrance other than the Permitted Encumbrances.
Section 3.3 Property Assessments.
The Real Property is assessed for purposes of Property Assessments as a separate and distinct parcel from any other property, such that the Real Property shall never become subject to the Lien of any Property Assessments levied or assessed against any property other than the Real Property.
Section 3.4 Independence of the Real Property.
No buildings or other improvements on property not covered by this Mortgage rely on the Real Property or any interest therein to fulfill any requirement of any Governmental Authority for the existence of such property, building or improvements; and none of the Real Property relies, or will rely, on any property not covered by this Mortgage or any interest therein to fulfill any requirement of any Governmental Authority. The Real Property has been properly subdivided from all other property in accordance with the requirements of any applicable Governmental Authorities.
Section 3.5 Existing Improvements.
The existing Improvements, if any, were constructed, and are being used and maintained, in accordance with all applicable Laws, including zoning Laws.
Section 3.6 Leases and Tenants.
The Leases are valid and are in full force and effect, and Mortgagor is not in default under any of the terms thereof. Except as expressly permitted in the Loan Agreement, Mortgagor has not accepted any Rents in advance of the time the same became due under the Leases and has not forgiven, compromised or discounted any of the Rents. Mortgagor has title to and the right to assign the Leases and Rents to Mortgagee, and no other assignment of the Leases or Rents has been granted. To the best of Mortgagors knowledge and belief, no tenant or tenants occupying, individually or in the aggregate, more than five percent (5%) of the net rentable area of the Improvements are in default under their Lease(s) or are the subject of any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding.
Section 4.1 Obligations.
Mortgagor agrees to promptly pay and perform all of the Obligations, time being of the essence in each case.
Section 4.2 Property Assessments; Documentary Taxes.
Mortgagor (a) will promptly pay in full and discharge all Property Assessments, and (b) will furnish to Mortgagee, upon demand, the receipted bills for such Property Assessments prior to the day upon which the same shall become delinquent. Property Assessments shall be considered delinquent as of the first day any interest or penalty commences to accrue thereon. Mortgagor will promptly pay all stamp, documentary, recordation, transfer and intangible taxes and all other taxes that may from time to time be required to be paid with respect to the Loan, the Note, this Mortgage or any of the other Loan Documents.
Section 4.3 Permitted Contests.
Mortgagor shall not be required to pay any of the Property Assessments, or to comply with any Law, so long as Mortgagor shall in good faith, and at its cost and expense, contest the amount or validity thereof, or take other appropriate action with respect thereto, in good faith and in an appropriate manner or by appropriate proceedings; provided that (a) such proceedings operate to prevent the collection of, or other realization upon, such Property Assessments or enforcement of the Law so contested, (b) there will be no sale, forfeiture or loss of the Property during the contest, (c) Mortgagee or the Property is not subject to any Claim as a result of such contest, other than if paid or discharged as required below, and (d) Mortgagor provides assurances satisfactory to Mortgagee (including the establishment of an appropriate reserve account with Mortgagee) of its ability to pay such Property Assessments or comply with such Law in the event Mortgagor is unsuccessful in its contest. Each such contest shall be promptly prosecuted to final conclusion or settlement, and Mortgagor shall indemnify and save Mortgagee harmless against all Claims in connection therewith. Promptly after the settlement or conclusion of such contest or action, Mortgagor shall comply with such Law and/or pay and discharge the amounts which shall be levied, assessed or imposed or determined to be payable, together with all penalties, fines, interests, costs and expenses in connection therewith.
Section 4.4 Compliance with Laws.
Except as expressly set forth in the Loan Agreement, Mortgagor will comply with and not violate, and cause to be complied with and not violated, all present and future Laws applicable to the Property and its use and operation.
Section 4.5 Maintenance and Repair of the Property.
Mortgagor, at Mortgagors sole expense, will (a) keep and maintain Improvements and Accessories in as good a condition as exists as of the Effective Date, ordinary wear and tear excepted, (b) make all necessary or appropriate repairs and Additions to Improvements and Accessories, so that each part of the Improvements and all of the Accessories shall at all times be in good condition and fit and proper for the respective purposes for which they were originally intended, erected, or installed, and (c) commit or permit no waste.
Section 4.6 Additions to Security.
All right, title and interest of Mortgagor in and to all Improvements and Additions hereafter constructed or placed on the Property and in and to any Accessories hereafter acquired shall, without any further mortgage, conveyance, assignment or other act by Mortgagor, become subject to the Lien of this Mortgage as fully and completely, and with the same effect, as though now owned by Mortgagor and specifically described in the granting clauses hereof. Mortgagor agrees, however, to execute and deliver to Mortgagee such further documents as may be required by the terms of the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
Section 4.7 Subrogation.
To the extent permitted by Law, Mortgagee shall be subrogated, notwithstanding its release of record, to any Lien now or hereafter existing on the Property to the extent that such Lien is paid or discharged by Mortgagee whether or not from the proceeds of the Loan. This Section shall not be deemed or construed, however, to obligate Mortgagee to pay or discharge any Lien.
Section 4.8 Leases.
(a) Except as expressly permitted in the Loan Agreement, Mortgagor shall not enter into any Lease with respect to all or any portion of the Property without the prior written consent of Mortgagee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.
(b) Mortgagee shall not be obligated to perform or discharge any obligation of Mortgagor under any Lease. The assignment of Leases provided for in this Mortgage in no manner places on Mortgagee any responsibility for (i) the control, care, management or repair of the Property, (ii) the carrying out of any of the terms and conditions of the Leases, (iii) any waste committed on the Property, or (iv) any dangerous or defective condition on the Property (whether known or unknown).
(c) No approval of any Lease by Mortgagee shall be for any purpose other than to protect Mortgagees security and to preserve Mortgagees rights under the Loan Documents, and no such approval shall result in a waiver of a Default or Event of Default.
Section 4.9 Statutory Condition
This Mortgage is upon the STATUTORY CONDITION and upon the further condition that there be no breach of or default under any of the terms, provisions, covenants and agreements of any of the Loan Documents or any other instruments or agreements to secure the indebtedness secured hereby and that all such terms, provisions and agreements be duly and fully kept and performed.
Section 5.1 Encumbrances.
Mortgagor will not permit any of the Property to become subject to any Encumbrance other than the Permitted Encumbrances. Within thirty (30) days after the filing of any mechanics lien or other Lien or Encumbrance against the Property, Mortgagor will promptly discharge or stay execution of the same by payment or filing a bond or otherwise as permitted by Law. So long as Mortgagees security has been protected by the filing of a bond or otherwise in a manner satisfactory to Mortgagee in its sole and absolute discretion, Mortgagor shall have the right to contest in good faith any Claim, Lien or Encumbrance, provided that Mortgagor does so diligently and without prejudice to Mortgagee or delay in completing construction of the Improvements. Mortgagor shall give Mortgagee Notice of any default under any Lien and Notice of any foreclosure or threat of foreclosure with respect to any of the Property. Mortgagor agrees that it shall indemnify and hold Mortgagee harmless against any loss or liability, cost or expense, including any judgments, attorneys fees and costs, costs of appeal bonds and printing costs, arising out of or relating to any proceeding instituted by any claimant alleging priority over the lien of this Mortgage.
Section 5.2 Transfer of the Property.
Mortgagor will not Transfer, or contract to Transfer, all or any part of the Property or any legal or beneficial interest therein (except for certain Transfers of the Accessories expressly permitted in this Mortgage and except for Transfers permitted under the Loan Agreement). Any Disposition (as defined in the Loan Agreement) prohibited under the terms of the Loan Agreement shall be deemed to be a prohibited Transfer of the Property.
Section 5.3 Removal, Demolition or Alteration of Accessories and Improvements.
Except to the extent permitted by the following sentence and the Loan Agreement, no Improvements or Accessories shall be removed, demolished or materially altered without the prior written consent of Mortgagee. Provided no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Mortgagor may remove and dispose of, free from the Lien of this Mortgage, such Accessories as from time to time become worn out or obsolete, provided that, at the time of, or prior to, such removal, any such Accessories that, in the Mortgagors reasonable business judgment, are material to the operation of the Property or the Mortgagors business with respect thereto are replaced with other Accessories which are free from Liens other than Permitted Encumbrances (and by such removal and replacement Mortgagor shall be deemed to have subjected such Accessories to the Lien of this Mortgage).
Section 5.4 Additional Improvements.
Mortgagor will not construct any Improvements other than those presently on the Land and those described in the Loan Agreement without the prior written consent of Mortgagee. Mortgagor will complete and pay for, within a reasonable time, any Improvements that Mortgagor is permitted to construct on the Land. Mortgagor will construct and erect any permitted Improvements (a) strictly in accordance with all applicable Laws and any private restrictive covenants, (b) entirely on lots or parcels of the Land, (c) so as not to encroach upon any easement or right of way or upon the land of others, and (d) wholly within any building restriction and setback lines applicable to the Land.
Section 5.5 Restrictive Covenants, Zoning, etc.
Without the prior written consent of Mortgagee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed absent an Event of Default, Mortgagor will not initiate, join in, or consent to any change in, any restrictive covenant, easement, zoning ordinance, or other public or private restrictions limiting or defining the uses which may be made of the Property. Mortgagor (a) will promptly perform and observe, and cause to be performed and observed, all of the terms and conditions of all material agreements affecting the Property, and (b) will do or cause to be done all things necessary to preserve intact and unimpaired any and all easements, appurtenances and other interests and rights in favor of, or constituting any portion of, the Property.

Section 6.2 Transfers.
Mortgagor Transfers, or contracts to Transfer, all or any part of the Property or any legal or beneficial interest therein (except for Transfers of the Accessories expressly permitted under this Mortgage or the Loan Agreement).

Section 6.3 Other Obligations.
Mortgagor fails to promptly perform or comply with any of the Obligations set forth in this Mortgage (other than those expressly described in other Sections of this Article), and such failure continues uncured for a period of thirty (30) days after Notice from Mortgagee to Mortgagor, unless (a) such failure, by its nature, is not capable of being cured within such period, and (b) within such period, Mortgagor commences to cure such failure and thereafter diligently prosecutes the cure thereof, and (c) Mortgagor causes such failure to be cured no later than ninety (90) days after the date of such Notice from Mortgagee.

Rights and Remedies.
Upon the happening of any Event of Default, Mortgagee shall have the right, in addition to any other rights or remedies available to Mortgagee under any of the Loan Documents, applicable Law, or equity to exercise any one or more of the following rights, powers or remedies:
Section 7.1 Acceleration.
Mortgagee may accelerate any or all (as determined by Mortgagee in its sole discretion) of the Obligations, whereupon such Obligations shall become immediately due and payable, and Mortgagee may also terminate any Hedge Agreement and such Hedge Agreement shall immediately terminate, all of the foregoing without notice of default, notice of acceleration or intention to accelerate, presentment or demand for payment, protest, notice of protest, notice of nonpayment or dishonor, or notices or demands of any kind or character (all of which are hereby expressly waived by Mortgagor).
Section 7.2 Mortgagees Right to Enter and Take Possession, Operate and Apply Income.
(i) Mortgagee may demand that Mortgagor surrender the actual possession of the Property and upon such demand, Mortgagor shall forthwith surrender same to Mortgagee and, to the extent permitted by law, Mortgagee itself, or by such officers or agents as it may appoint, may enter and take possession of all of the Property and may exclude Mortgagor and its agents and employees wholly therefrom.
(ii) If Mortgagor shall for any reason fail to surrender or deliver the Property or any part thereof after Mortgagees demand, Mortgagee may obtain a judgment or order conferring on Mortgagee the right to immediate possession or requiring the Mortgagor to deliver immediate possession to Mortgagee, to the entry of which judgment or decree the Mortgagor hereby specifically consents.
(iii) Mortgagee may from time to time: (A) continue and complete construction of, hold, store, use, operate, manage and control the Property and conduct the business thereof; (B) make all reasonably necessary maintenance, repairs, renewals, replacements, additions, betterments and improvements thereto and thereon and purchase or otherwise acquire additional Personalty; (C) insure or keep the Property insured; (D) exercise all the rights and powers of the Mortgagor in its name or otherwise with respect to the same; and (E) enter into agreements with others (including new Leases or amendments, extensions, or cancellations to existing Leases) all as Mortgagee from time to time may determine in its sole discretion. Mortgagor hereby constitutes and irrevocably appoints Mortgagee its true and lawful attorney-in-fact, which appointment is coupled with an interest, with full power of substitution, and empowers said attorney or attorneys in the name of Mortgagor, but at the option of said attorney-in-fact, to do any and all acts and execute any and all agreements that Mortgagee may deem necessary or proper to implement and perform any and all of the foregoing.
Section 7.3 Collection of Rents.
Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the license granted to Mortgagor to collect the Rents shall be automatically and immediately revoked, without further notice to or demand upon Mortgagor. Mortgagee may, but shall not be obligated to perform any or all obligations of the landlord under any or all of the Leases, and Mortgagee may, but shall not be obligated to, exercise and enforce any or all of Mortgagors rights under the Leases. Without limitation to the generality of the foregoing, Mortgagee may notify the tenants under the Leases that all Rents are to be paid to Mortgagee, and following such notice all Rents shall be paid directly to Mortgagee and not to Mortgagor or any other Person other than as directed by Mortgagee, it being understood that a demand by Mortgagee on any tenant under the Leases for the payment of Rent shall be sufficient to warrant payment by such tenant of Rent to Mortgagee without the necessity of further consent by Mortgagor. Mortgagor hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs the tenants under the Leases to pay all Rents to Mortgagee instead of to Mortgagor, upon receipt of written notice from Mortgagee, without the necessity of any inquiry of Mortgagor and without the necessity of determining the existence or non-existence of an Event of Default. Mortgagor hereby appoints Mortgagee as Mortgagors attorney-in-fact with full power of substitution, which appointment shall take effect upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and is coupled with an interest and is irrevocable prior to the full and final payment and performance of the Obligations, in Mortgagors name or in Mortgagees name: (a) to endorse all checks and other instruments received in payment of Rents and to deposit the same in any account selected by Mortgagee; (b) to give receipts and releases in relation thereto; (c) to institute, prosecute and/or settle actions for the recovery of Rents; (d) to modify the terms of any Leases including terms relating to the Rents payable thereunder; (e) to cancel any Leases; (f) to enter into new Leases; and (g) to do all other acts and things with respect to the Leases and Rents which Mortgagee may deem necessary or desirable to protect the security for the Obligations. Any Rents received shall be applied first to pay all Expenses and next in reduction of the other Obligations. Mortgagor shall pay, on demand, to Mortgagee, the amount of any deficiency between (i) the Rents received by Mortgagee, and (ii) all Expenses incurred together with interest thereon as provided in the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
Section 7.4 Foreclosure.
Mortgagee may exercise the STATUTORY POWER OF SALE. Any sale made hereunder may be as an entirety or in such parcels as Mortgagee may request. To the extent permitted by applicable Law, any sale may be adjourned by announcement at the time and place appointed for such sale without further notice except as may be required by law. If the proceeds of such sale of less than the whole of the Property shall be less than the aggregate of the Obligations, this Mortgage and the lien hereof shall remain in full force and effect as to the unsold portion of the Property just as though no sale had been made and
the STATUTORY POWER OF SALE shall also apply to any future sales. A sale may cover not only the Real Property but also the Personalty and other interests which are a part of the Property, or any part thereof, as a unit and as a part of a single sale, or the sale may be of any part of the Property separately from the remainder of the Property. After each sale, the Mortgagee shall make to the purchaser or purchasers at such sale good and sufficient conveyances, conveying the property so sold to the purchaser or purchasers in fee simple, subject to the Permitted Encumbrances (and to such leases and other matters, if any), and shall receive the proceeds of said sale or sales and apply the same as herein provided. In the event any sale hereunder is not completed or is defective in the opinion of Mortgagee, such sale shall not exhaust the power of sale hereunder and Mortgagee shall have the right to cause a subsequent sale or sales to be made hereunder. Any and all statements of fact or other recitals made in any deed or deeds or other conveyances given by the Mortgagee as to nonpayment of the Obligations or as to the occurrence of any default, or as to Mortgagees having declared all of said indebtedness to be due and payable, or as to the request to sell, or as to notice of time, place and terms of sale and the properties to be sold having been duly given, or as to any other act or thing having been duly done by Mortgagee shall be taken as prima facie evidence of the truth of the facts so stated and recited.
Section 7.5 Receiver.
Mortgagee may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction to have a receiver appointed to enter upon and take possession of the Property, collect the Rents therefrom and apply the same as the court may direct, such receiver to have all of the rights and powers permitted under the Laws of the State. To the extent permitted by law, the right of the appointment of such receiver shall be a matter of strict right without regard to the value or the occupancy of the Property or the solvency or insolvency of Mortgagor. The expenses, including receivers fees, reasonable attorneys fees, costs and agents commission incurred pursuant to the powers herein contained, together with interest thereon at the default rate under the Note, shall be secured hereby and shall be due and payable by Mortgagor immediately without notice or demand. Notwithstanding the appointment of any receiver or other custodian, Mortgagee shall be entitled as pledgee to the possession and control of any cash or deposits at the time held by, payable, or deliverable under the terms of this Mortgage to the Mortgagee, and the Mortgagee shall have the right to offset the unpaid Obligations against any such cash or deposits in such order as Mortgagee may elect.
Section 7.6 Uniform Commercial Code.
Mortgagee may exercise any or all of its rights and remedies under the Uniform Commercial Code as adopted by the State as in effect from time to time, (or under the Uniform Commercial Code in force from time to time in any other state to the extent the same is applicable Law) or other applicable Law as well as all other rights and remedies possessed by Mortgagee, all of which shall be cumulative. Mortgagee is hereby authorized and empowered to enter the Property or other place where the Personalty may be located without legal process, and to take possession of the Personalty without notice or demand, which hereby are waived to the maximum extent permitted by the Laws of the State. Upon demand by Mortgagee, Mortgagor shall make the Personalty available to Mortgagee at a place reasonably convenient to Mortgagee. Mortgagee may proceed under the Uniform Commercial Code as to all or any part of the Personalty, and in conjunction therewith may exercise all of the rights, remedies and powers of a secured creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code. Any notification required by the Uniform Commercial Code shall be deemed reasonably and properly given if sent in accordance with the Notice provisions of this Mortgage at least ten (10) days before any sale or other disposition of the Personalty. Mortgagee may choose to dispose of some or all of the property, in any combination consisting of both Personalty and Real Property, in one or more public or private sales to be held in accordance with the Law and procedures applicable to real property, as permitted by Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Mortgagor agrees that such a sale of Personalty together with Real Property constitutes a commercially reasonable sale of the Personalty.
Section 7.7 Application of Proceeds
Unless otherwise provided by applicable Law, all proceeds from the sale of the Property or any part thereof pursuant to the rights and remedies set forth in this Article and any other proceeds received by Mortgagee from the exercise of any of its other rights and remedies hereunder or under the other Loan Documents shall be applied first to pay all Expenses and next in reduction of the other Obligations, in such manner and order as Mortgagee may elect.
Section 7.8 Remedies Cumulative and Concurrent.
No right, power or remedy of Mortgagee as provided in the Note, this Mortgage, the Guaranty, or the other Loan Documents is intended to be exclusive of any other right, power, or remedy of Mortgagee, but each and every such right, power and remedy shall be cumulative and concurrent and in addition to any other right, power or remedy available to Mortgagee now or hereafter existing at law or in equity and may be pursued separately, successively or together against Mortgagor, any guarantor, or any endorser, co-maker, or surety of the Obligations, or the Property or any part thereof, or any one or more of them, at the sole discretion of Mortgagee. The failure of Mortgagee to exercise any such right, power or remedy shall in no event be construed as a waiver or release thereof.
Section 7.9 Waiver, Delay or Omission.
No waiver of any Event of Default hereunder shall extend to or affect any subsequent or any other Event of Default then existing, or impair any rights, powers or remedies consequent thereon, and no delay or omission of Mortgagee to exercise any right, power or remedy shall be construed to waive any such Event of Default or to constitute acquiescence therein.
Section 7.10 Credit of Mortgagee.
To the maximum extent permitted by the Laws of the State, upon any sale made under or by virtue of this Article, Mortgagee may bid for and acquire the Property, or any part thereof, and in lieu of paying cash therefor may apply to the purchase price, any portion of or all of the unpaid Obligations in such order as Mortgagee may elect.
Section 7.11 Sale.
Any sale or sales made under or by virtue of this Article shall operate to divest all the estate, right, title, interest, claim and demand whatsoever at law or in equity, of the Mortgagor and all Persons, except tenants pursuant to Leases approved by Mortgagee, claiming by, through or under Mortgagor in and to the properties and rights so sold, whether sold to Mortgagee or to others.
Section 7.12 Proofs of Claim.
In the case of any receivership, insolvency, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, composition, seizure of the Property by any Governmental Authority, or other judicial proceedings affecting the Mortgagor, any guarantor, any endorser, co-maker, or surety of the Obligations, or any of their respective properties, the Mortgagee, to the extent permitted by law, shall be entitled to file such proofs of claim and other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have its claim allowed in such proceedings for the entire unpaid Obligations at the date of the institution of such proceedings, and for any additional amounts which may become due and payable after such date.
Section 7.13 Waiver of Redemption, Notice, Marshaling, Etc.
Mortgagor hereby waives and releases, for itself and anyone claiming through, by, or under it, to the maximum extent permitted by the Laws of the State:
(i) all benefit that might accrue to Mortgagor by virtue of any present or future Law exempting the Property, or any part of the proceeds arising from any sale thereof, from attachment, levy or sale on execution, or providing for any appraisement, valuation, stay of execution, exemption from civil process, redemption or extension of time for payment,
(ii) unless specifically required herein, all notices of default, or Mortgagees actual exercise of any option or remedy under the Loan Documents, or otherwise, and
(iii) any right to have the Property marshaled.
Section 7.14 Discontinuance of Proceedings.
If Mortgagee shall have proceeded to enforce any right under any Loan Document and such proceedings shall have been discontinued or abandoned for any reason, then except as may be provided in any written agreement between Mortgagor and Mortgagee providing for the discontinuance or abandonment of such proceedings, Mortgagor and Mortgagee shall be restored to their former positions and the rights, remedies and powers of Mortgagee shall continue as if no such proceedings had been instituted.
Section 7.15 Mortgagees Actions.
Mortgagee may, at any time without notice to any Person and without consideration, do or refrain from doing any or all of the following actions, and neither the Mortgagor, any guarantor, any endorser, co-maker, or surety of the Obligations, nor any other Person (hereinafter in this Section collectively referred to as the Obligor) now or hereafter liable for the payment and performance of the Obligations shall be relieved from the payment and performance thereof, unless specifically released in writing by Mortgagee: (a) agree to renew, extend or modify the terms of the Note, this Mortgage and the other Loan Documents, or any of them; (b) forbear or extend the time for the payment or performance of any or all of the Obligations; (c) apply payments by any Obligor to the reduction of the unpaid Obligations in such manner, in such amounts, and at such times and in such order and priority as Mortgagee may see fit; (d) release any Obligor; (e) substitute or release in whole or in part the Property or any other collateral or any portion thereof now or hereafter held as security for the Obligations without affecting, disturbing or impairing in any manner whatsoever the validity and priority of the lien of this Mortgage upon the Property which is not released or substituted, or the validity and priority of any security interest of the Mortgagee in such other collateral which is not released or substituted; (f) subordinate the lien of this Mortgage or the lien of any other security interest in any other collateral now or hereafter held as security for the Obligations; (g) join in the execution of a plat or replat of the Land (provided, however, notwithstanding the foregoing, Mortgagee will join in such plat or replat of the Land so long as such plat or replat is acceptable to Mortgagee); (h) join in and consent to the filing of a declaration of condominium or declaration of restrictive covenants regarding all or any part of the Land; (i) consent to the granting of any easement on the Land; and (j) generally deal with any Obligor or any other party as Mortgagee may see fit.

Mortgagee shall have the right from time to time to protect, exercise and enforce any legal or equitable remedy against Mortgagor provided under the Loan Documents or by applicable Laws.
Section 8.1 Rights, Powers and Remedies Cumulative.
Each right, power and remedy of Mortgagee as provided for in this Mortgage, or in any of the other Loan Documents or now or hereafter existing by Law, shall be cumulative and concurrent and shall be in addition to every other right, power or remedy provided for in this Mortgage, or in any of the other Loan Documents or now or hereafter existing by Law, and the exercise or beginning of the exercise by Mortgagee of any one or more of such rights, powers or remedies shall not preclude the simultaneous or later exercise by Mortgagee of any or all such other rights, powers or remedies.
Section 8.2 No Waiver by Mortgagee.
No course of dealing or conduct by or among Mortgagee and Mortgagor shall be effective to amend, modify or change any provisions of this Mortgage or the other Loan Documents. No failure or delay by Mortgagee to insist upon the strict performance of any term, covenant or agreement of this Mortgage or of any of the other Loan Documents, or to exercise any right, power or remedy consequent upon a breach thereof, shall constitute a waiver of any such term, covenant or agreement or of any such breach, or preclude Mortgagee from exercising any such right, power or remedy at any later time or times. By accepting payment after the due date of any of the Obligations, Mortgagee shall not be deemed to waive the right either to require prompt payment when due of all other Obligations, or to declare an Event of Default for failure to make prompt payment of any such other Obligations. Neither Mortgagor nor any other Person now or hereafter obligated for the payment of the whole or any part of the Obligations shall be relieved of such liability by reason of (a) the failure of Mortgagee to comply with any request of Mortgagor or of any other Person to take action to foreclose this Mortgage or otherwise enforce any of the provisions of this Mortgage, or (b) any agreement or stipulation between any subsequent owner or owners of the Property and Mortgagee, or (c) Mortgagees extending the time of payment or modifying the terms of this Mortgage or any of the other Loan Documents without first having obtained the consent of Mortgagor or such other Person. Regardless of consideration, and without the necessity for any notice to or consent by the holder of any subordinate Lien on the Property, Mortgagee may release any Person at any time liable for any of the Obligations or any part of the security for the Obligations and may extend the time of payment or otherwise modify the terms of this Mortgage or any of the other Loan Documents without in any way impairing or affecting the Lien of this Mortgage or the priority of this Mortgage over any subordinate Lien. The holder of any subordinate Lien shall have no right to terminate any Lease regardless of whether or not such Lease is subordinate to this Mortgage. Mortgagee may resort to the security or collateral described in this Mortgage or any of the other Loan Documents in such order and manner as Mortgagee may elect in its sole discretion.
Section 8.3 Waivers and Agreements Regarding Remedies.
To the full extent Mortgagor may do so under applicable law, Mortgagor hereby voluntarily and knowingly:
(a) agrees that it will not at any time plead, claim or take advantage of any Laws now or hereafter in force providing for any appraisement, valuation, stay, extension or redemption, and waives and releases all rights of redemption, valuation, appraisement, stay of execution, exemption from civil process, extension of time for payment and notice of election to accelerate the Obligations;
(b) waives all rights to a marshaling of the assets of Mortgagor, including the Property, or to a sale in the inverse order of alienation in the event of a foreclosure of the Property, and agrees not to assert any right under any Law pertaining to the marshaling of assets, the sale in inverse order of alienation, the exemption of homestead, the administration of estates of decedents, or other matters whatsoever to defeat, reduce or affect the right of Mortgagee under the terms of this Mortgage to a sale of the Property without any prior or different resort for collection, or the right of Mortgagee to the payment of the Obligations out of the proceeds of sale of the Property in preference to every other claimant whatsoever;
(c) waives any right to bring or utilize any defense, counterclaim or setoff, other than one which denies the existence or sufficiency of the facts upon which any foreclosure action is grounded. If any defense, counterclaim or setoff, other than one permitted by the preceding clause, is timely raised in a foreclosure action, such defense, counterclaim or setoff shall be dismissed. If such defense, counterclaim or setoff is based on a Claim which could be tried in an action for money damages, such Claim may be brought in a separate action which shall not thereafter be consolidated with the foreclosure action. The bringing of such separate action for money damages shall not be deemed to afford any grounds for staying the foreclosure action; and
(d) waives and relinquishes any and all rights and remedies which Mortgagor may have or be able to assert by reason of the provisions of any Laws pertaining to the rights and remedies of sureties.
Section 8.4 Successors and Assigns.
All of the grants, covenants, terms, provisions and conditions of this Mortgage shall run with the Land and shall apply to and bind the successors and assigns of Mortgagor (including any permitted subsequent owner of the Property), and inure to the benefit of Mortgagee, its successors and assigns.
Section 8.5 No Warranty by Mortgagee.
By inspecting the Property or by accepting or approving anything required to be observed, performed or fulfilled by Mortgagor or to be given to Mortgagee pursuant to this Mortgage or any of the other Loan Documents, Mortgagee shall not be deemed to have warranted or represented the condition, sufficiency, legality, effectiveness or legal effect of the same, and such acceptance or approval shall not constitute any warranty or representation with respect thereto by Mortgagee.
Section 8.6 Amendments.
This Mortgage may not be modified or amended except by an agreement in writing, signed by the party against whom enforcement of the change is sought.
Section 8.7 Severability.
In the event any one or more of the provisions of this Mortgage or any of the other Loan Documents shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part or in any other respect, or in the event any one or more of the provisions of the Loan Documents operates or would prospectively operate to invalidate this Mortgage or any of the other Loan Documents, then and in either of those events, at the option of Mortgagee, such provision or provisions only shall be deemed null and void and shall not affect the validity of the remaining Obligations, and the remaining provisions of the Loan Documents shall remain operative and in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, prejudiced or disturbed thereby.
Section 8.8 Notices.
All Notices required or which any party desires to give hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be in writing and, unless otherwise specifically provided in such other Loan Document, shall be deemed sufficiently given or furnished if delivered by personal delivery, by nationally recognized overnight courier service or by certified United States mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the party to whom directed at the applicable address specified in the Preamble to this Mortgage (unless changed by similar notice in writing given by the particular party whose address is to be changed).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, no notice of change of address shall be effective except upon actual receipt. This Section shall not be construed in any way to affect or impair any waiver of notice or demand provided in this Mortgage or in any other Loan Document or to require giving of notice or demand to or upon any Person in any situation or for any reason.
Section 8.9 Joint and Several Liability.
If Mortgagor consists of two (2) or more Persons, the term Mortgagor shall also refer to all Persons signing this Mortgage as Mortgagor, and to each of them, and all of them are jointly and severally bound, obligated and liable hereunder.
