(j) The Part I of Schedule 1 of the Agreement is hereby amended by deleting sub-section (i) in its entirety and replacing it with the following:
(f) Hazard Insurance. The Mortgaged Property is insured by a fire and extended perils insurance policy, issued by a Qualified Insurer, and such other hazards as are customary in the area where the Mortgaged Property is located, and to the extent required by the Seller as of the date of origination consistent with the Underwriting Guidelines, against earthquake and other risks insured against by Persons operating like properties in the locality of the Mortgaged Property, in an amount not less than the least of (i) 100% of the replacement cost of all improvements to the Mortgaged Property, (ii) the outstanding principal balance of the Mortgage Loan, or (iii) the amount necessary to avoid the operation of any co-insurance provisions with respect to the Mortgaged Property, and consistent with the amount that would have been required as of the date of origination in accordance with the Underwriting Guidelines. If any portion of the Mortgaged Property is in an area identified by any federal Governmental Authority as having special flood hazards, and flood insurance is available, a flood insurance policy
meeting the current guidelines of the Federal Emergency Management Agency is in effect with a generally acceptable insurance carrier, in an amount representing coverage not less than the least of (1) the outstanding principal balance of the Mortgage Loan, (2) the full insurable value of the Mortgaged Property, and (3) the maximum amount of insurance available under the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended by the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1974. All such insurance policies (collectively, the hazard insurance policy) contain a standard mortgagee clause naming the Seller, its successors and assigns (including without limitation, subsequent owners of the Mortgage Loan), as mortgagee, and may not be reduced, terminated or canceled without 30 days prior written notice to the mortgagee. No such notice has been received by the Seller. All premiums on such insurance policy have been paid. The related Mortgage obligates the Mortgagor to maintain all such insurance and, at such Mortgagors failure to do so, authorizes the mortgagee to maintain such insurance at the Mortgagors cost and expense and to seek reimbursement therefor from such Mortgagor. Where required by state law or regulation, the Mortgagor has been given an opportunity to choose the carrier of the required hazard insurance, provided the policy is not a master or blanket hazard insurance policy covering a condominium, or any hazard insurance policy covering the common facilities of a planned unit development. The hazard insurance policy is the valid and binding obligation of the insurer and is in full force and effect. The Seller has not engaged in, and has no knowledge of the Mortgagors having engaged in, any act or omission which would impair the coverage of any such policy, the benefits of the endorsement provided for herein, or the validity and binding effect of either including, without limitation, no unlawful fee, commission, kickback or other unlawful compensation or value of any kind has been or will be received, retained or realized by any attorney, firm or other Person, and no such unlawful items have been received, retained or realized by the Seller.
(k) Part I of Schedule 1 of the Agreement is hereby amended by deleting sub-section (i) in its entirety and replacing it with the following:
(l) Full Disbursement of Proceeds. The Mortgage Loan (unless it is a [***]) has been closed and, except with respect to any holdback that is permitted under the applicable Agency Guide, the proceeds of the Mortgage Loan have been fully disbursed and there is no further requirement for future advances thereunder, and any and all requirements as to completion of any on-site or off-site improvement and as to disbursements of any escrow funds therefor have been complied with. All costs, fees and expenses incurred in making or closing the Mortgage Loan and the recording of the Mortgage were paid, and the Mortgagor is not entitled to any refund of any amounts paid or due under the Mortgage Note or Mortgage.
(l) Part I of Schedule 1 of the Agreement is hereby amended by deleting sub-section (i) in its entirety and replacing it with the following:
(ll) Construction or Rehabilitation of Mortgaged Property. No Mortgage Loan (other than a [***]) was made in connection with the construction or rehabilitation of a Mortgaged Property or facilitating the trade-in or exchange of a Mortgaged Property (other than trade equity as permitted by the applicable Agency Guide). With respect to a [***], either (i) Seller is monitoring timely completion of the renovation work during the applicable renovation period and an escrow account contains the necessary contingency reserve and adequate funds to cover the remaining renovation costs, or (ii) the renovation work is complete and
Seller has obtained a certification of completion. With respect to any [***], a [***] appraiser has issued a Notice of Value and completed the final inspection of the Mortgaged Property and the Loan Guaranty Certificate has been issued.
(m) Exhibit 7 to of the Agreement is hereby amended to read as set forth below:
(n) Exhibit C to of the Agreement is hereby amended by deleting such Exhibit C and replacing it with [Reserved].
(o) Exhibit L to of the Agreement is hereby amended to include the following entities:

SECTION 4. Representations. Seller hereby represents to Buyer and Agent that as of the date hereof, Seller is in full compliance with all of the terms and conditions of the Agreement and each other Repurchase Document and no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing under the Agreement or any other Repurchase Document.
SECTION 5. Binding Effect; Governing Law. THIS AMENDMENT NUMBER EIGHT SHALL BE BINDING AND INURE TO THE BENEFIT OF THE PARTIES HERETO AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUCCESSORS AND PERMITTED ASSIGNS.

SECTION 6. Counterparts. This Amendment Number Eight may be executed by each of the parties hereto on any number of separate counterparts, each of which shall be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
