No Defenses. The Mortgage Loan (and the Assignment of Proprietary Lease to each Cooperative Loan) is not subject to any right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense, including, without limitation, the defense of usury, nor will the operation of any of the terms of the Mortgage Note or the Mortgage, or the exercise of any right thereunder, render either the Mortgage Note or the Mortgage unenforceable, in whole or in part and no such right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense has been asserted with respect thereto, and no Mortgagor in respect of the Mortgage Loan was a debtor in any state or federal bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding at the time the Mortgage Loan was originated.

13.3 Adding the following clauses:
Cooperative Loan: Valid First Lien. With respect to each Cooperative Loan, the related Mortgage is a valid, enforceable and subsisting first security interest on the related cooperative shares securing the related cooperative note and lease, subject only to (a) liens of the cooperative for unpaid assessments representing the Mortgagors pro rata share of the cooperatives payments for its blanket mortgage, current and future real property taxes, insurance premiums, maintenance fees and other assessments to which like collateral is commonly subject and (b) other matters to which like collateral is commonly subject which do not materially interfere with the benefits of the security intended to be provided by the security interest.

Cooperative Loan: Compliance with Law. With respect to each Cooperative Loan, the related cooperative corporation that owns title to the related cooperative apartment building is a cooperative housing corporation within the meaning of Section 216 of the Code, and is in material compliance with applicable federal, state and local laws which, if not complied with, could have a material adverse effect on the Mortgaged Property.
