Some of the above described collateral is or is to become fixtures upon or minerals and mineral rights located upon the real estate described on Exhibit A, and this financing statement is to be filed for record in the public real estate records.
AND THE MORTGAGOR, for itself, its successors and assigns, does covenant with the Mortgagee, its successors and assigns, that it is lawfully seized of the Mortgaged Property and has good right to sell and convey the same; that the Mortgaged Property is free from all encumbrances except as may be further stated in this Mortgage; that the Mortgagee, its successors and assigns, shall quietly enjoy and possess the Mortgaged Property; and that the Mortgagor will WARRANT AND DEFEND the title to the same against all lawful claims not specifically excepted in this Mortgage.
The Mortgagor will not change the principal place of business or chief executive office set forth above, or change its state of incorporation, or change its name, without in each instance the prior written consent of the Mortgagee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. The Mortgagee’s consent will, however, be conditioned upon, among other things, the execution and delivery of additional financing statements, security agreements and other instruments which may be necessary to effectively evidence or perfect the Mortgagee’s security interest in the Mortgaged Property as a result of such changes.
PROVIDED, NEVERTHELESS, that if the Mortgagor shall pay the principal balance of the Note in full, plus interest at the rate set forth in the Note, which provides for a variable rate of interest, on the unpaid principal balance, as computed in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Note, and any other sums due and owing under the Note and the Loan Agreement and shall also pay or cause to be paid all other sums, with interest thereon, as may be advanced by the Mortgagee in accordance with this Mortgage either to protect the lien of this Mortgage, or by way of additional loan or for any other purpose permitted by the terms of this Mortgage, and shall also keep and perform all and singular the covenants herein, required on the part of the Mortgagor to be kept and performed (the Note, including any and all renewals, amendments, extensions and modifications thereof, the obligations of the Mortgagor under the Loan Documents and all such sums, together with interest thereon, and such covenants herein collectively referred to as the “Indebtedness Secured Hereby”), then this Mortgage shall be null and void, in which event the Mortgagee will execute and deliver to the Mortgagor in form suitable for recording a full satisfaction of this Mortgage; otherwise this Mortgage shall remain in full force and effect.
GENERAL COVENANTS, AGREEMENTS, WARRANTIES
SECTION 1.1. PAYMENT OF INDEBTEDNESS; OBSERVANCE OF COVENANTS. The Mortgagor shall duly and punctually pay each and every payment of principal, interest and all prepayment premiums and late charges, if any, required by the Note or the Loan Agreement and all other Indebtedness Secured Hereby, as and when the same shall become due, and shall duly and punctually perform and observe all of the covenants, agreements and provisions contained herein, in the Loan Agreement or in any other instrument given as security for the payment of the Indebtedness Secured Hereby.
SECTION 1.2. MAINTENANCE; REPAIRS. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.3 hereof, the Mortgagor shall keep and maintain the Mortgaged Property in good condition, repair and operating condition free from any waste or misuse, and will comply with all requirements of law, municipal ordinances and regulations, restrictions and covenants affecting the Mortgaged Property and its use, and will promptly repair or restore any building, improvements or structures now or hereafter located on the Land which may become damaged or destroyed to their condition prior to any such damage or destruction. The Mortgagor shall not acquiesce in any rezoning classification, modification or restriction affecting the Land, without the prior written consent of the Mortgagee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The Mortgagor shall not abandon the Mortgaged Property.
SECTION 1.3. PAYMENT OF UTILITY CHARGES, TAXES AND ASSESSMENTS. The Mortgagor shall, before any penalty attaches thereto, pay or cause to be paid all charges made for electricity, gas, heat, water, sewer and other utilities furnished or used in connection with the Mortgaged property, and all taxes, assessments and levies of every nature heretofore or hereafter assessed against the Mortgaged Property and, upon demand, will furnish the Mortgagee receipted bills evidencing such payment.
Nothing in this Section 1.2 shall require the payment or discharge of any obligations imposed upon the Mortgagor by this Section so long as the Mortgagor shall diligently and in good faith and at its own expense contest the same or the validity thereof by appropriate legal proceedings which shall operate to prevent the collection thereof or other realization thereon and the sale or forfeiture of the Mortgaged Property or any part thereof to satisfy the same; provided, however, that during such contest the Mortgagor shall, at the reasonable request of the Mortgagee, provide security satisfactory to the Mortgagee, assuring the discharge of the Mortgagor’s obligation under this Section and of any additional charge, penalty or expense arising from or incurred as a result of such contest; and provided further, however, that if at any time payment of any obligation imposed upon the Mortgagor by this Section shall become necessary to prevent the delivery of a tax deed conveying the Land or any portion thereof because of nonpayment, then the Mortgagor shall pay the same in sufficient time to prevent the delivery of such tax deed.
SECTION 1.4. LIENS. Except for liens and encumbrances, if any, listed on Exhibit B attached hereto or otherwise consented to in writing by or granted to the Mortgagee (“Permitted Encumbrances”), the Mortgagor will keep the Mortgaged Property free from all liens (other than liens for taxes and assessments not yet due and payable) and encumbrances of every nature whatsoever heretofore or hereafter arising and, upon written demand of the Mortgagee, the Mortgagor will pay and procure the release of any such lien or encumbrance. The consent of the Mortgagee to any lien or encumbrance not listed on Exhibit B shall not be unreasonably withheld.
SECTION 1.5. COMPLIANCE WITH LAW. The Mortgagor will promptly comply with all present and future laws, ordinances, rules and regulations of any governmental authority affecting the Mortgaged Property unless the same is being diligently contested by the Mortgagor in good faith and by proper proceedings.
SECTION 1.6. RIGHT OF THE MORTGAGEE TO ENTER. The Mortgagor will permit the Mortgagee and its agents to enter and to authorize others to enter, upon any or all of the Land, at any time and from time to time, during normal business hours, to inspect the Mortgaged Property to perform or observe any covenants, conditions or terms hereunder which the Mortgagor shall fail to perform, meet or comply with, or for any other purpose in connection with the protection or preservation of the Mortgagee’s security, without thereby becoming liable to the Mortgagor or any person in possession under this Mortgage.
SECTION 1.7. RIGHT OF THE MORTGAGEE TO PERFORM. If the Mortgagor fails to pay all and singular any taxes, assessments, levies or other similar charges or encumbrances heretofore or hereafter assessed against the Mortgaged Property or fails to obtain the release of any lien or encumbrance (other than a Permitted Encumbrance) of any nature heretofore or hereafter arising upon the Mortgaged Property or fails to perform any other covenants and agreements contained in this Mortgage or if any action or proceeding is commenced which adversely affects or questions the title to or possession of the Mortgaged Property or the interest of the Mortgagor or the Mortgagee therein, then the Mortgagee, at the Mortgagee’s option, without notice to the Mortgagor, may perform such covenants and agreements, investigate and defend against such action or proceeding, and take such other action as the Mortgagee deems necessary to protect the Mortgagee’s interest in this Mortgage. Any amounts disbursed by the Mortgagee pursuant to this Section 1.7, including without limitation court costs and expenses and reasonable attorneys’ fees, with interest thereon, shall become additional indebtedness of the Mortgagor and shall be secured by this Mortgage. Such amount shall be payable upon written notice from the Mortgagee to the Mortgagor requesting payment thereof, and shall bear interest from the date of disbursement at a rate equal to the Default Rate (as defined in the Note) or, if such rate is illegal or usurious, at the maximum rate then permitted by law. Nothing contained in this Section 1.7 shall require the Mortgagee to incur any expense or to do any act or thing hereunder.
SECTION 1.8. ASSUMPTION. The Mortgagor shall not sell, assign, lease (except as permitted under the Loan Agreement), convey, mortgage or otherwise encumber or dispose of either the legal or equitable title or both to all or any portion of the Mortgaged Property or any other interest therein without the prior written consent of the Mortgagee. A sale, transfer or assignment of any ownership interest in the Mortgagor shall constitute a sale for the purposes of this Section 1.8.
SECTION 1.9. ASSIGNMENT OF RENTS. The Mortgagor does hereby sell, assign and transfer unto the Mortgagee (i) the immediate and continuing right to receive and collect all rents, income, issues and profits now due and which may hereafter become due under or by virtue of any lease or agreement (oral or written) for the leasing, subleasing, use or occupancy of all or any part of the Mortgaged Property now, heretofore or hereafter made or agreed to by the Mortgagor, and (ii) all of such leases and agreements, together with all guarantees therefor and any renewals or extensions thereof, for the purpose of securing payment of the indebtedness of the Mortgagor under the Note and the documents related thereto.
The Mortgagor does hereby irrevocably appoint the Mortgagee its true and lawful attorney in its name, place and stead, with or without taking possession of the Mortgaged Property, to rent, lease, sublease, let or sublet all or any portion of the Mortgaged Property to any party or parties at such rental and upon such terms, as it in its discretion may determine, and to collect all of said avails, rents, income, issues and profits arising from or accruing at any time hereafter under each and all of such leases and agreements, with the same rights and powers and subject to the same immunities, exoneration of liability and rights of recourse and indemnity as the Mortgagee would have upon taking possession of the Mortgaged Property.
The Mortgagor represents and agrees that no rent has been or will be paid in advance by any persons in possession of all or any portion of the Mortgaged Property for a period of more than one month and that the payment of none of the rents to accrue for all or any portion of the Mortgaged Property has or will be waived, released, reduced or discounted, or otherwise discharged or compromised, by the Mortgagor. The Mortgagor waives any right of setoff against any person in possession of all or any portion of the Mortgaged Property. The Mortgagor represents that it has not assigned any of said rents or profits to any third party and agrees that it will not so assign any of said rents or profits without the prior written consent of the Mortgagee.
Nothing contained herein shall be construed as constituting the Mortgagee “a mortgagee in possession” in the absence of the taking of actual possession of the Mortgaged Property by the Mortgagee. In the exercise of the powers herein granted to the Mortgagee, no liability shall be asserted or enforced against the Mortgagee, all such liability being expressly waived and released by the Mortgagor, except any liability arising from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Mortgagee.
The Mortgagor further agrees to assign and transfer to the Mortgagee all rents from future leases or subleases upon all or any part of the Mortgaged Property and to execute and deliver, immediately upon request of the Mortgagee, as such further assurances and assignments in the Mortgaged Property as the Mortgagee from time to time shall require.
Although it is the intention of the parties that this assignment of leases and rents shall be a present assignment, it is expressly understood and agreed that, anything herein contained to the contrary notwithstanding, the Mortgagee shall not exercise any of the rights and powers conferred upon it herein unless and until an Event of Default shall occur and nothing herein contained shall be deemed to affect or impair any rights which the Mortgagee may have under the Note, the Loan Agreement, this Mortgage or any other document or agreement related hereto or thereto.
The Mortgagor acknowledges and agrees that this assignment of leases and rents, and the Mortgagee’s rights and remedies hereunder, may be enforced by the Mortgagee throughout the entire redemption period provided by applicable law following any foreclosure sale of all or any portion of the Mortgaged Property.
At any time after the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Mortgagee, without in any way waiving such default, may:
at the Mortgagee’s option without notice to the Mortgagor and without regard to the adequacy of the security for the Note, either in person or by agent, with or without any action or proceeding, or by a receiver appointed by a court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Section 559.17, Subd. 2 and 576.25, peaceably take possession of the Mortgaged Property and have, hold, manage, lease, sublease and operate the same as a mortgagee in possession; or
without taking possession of the Mortgaged Property, sue for or otherwise collect and receive all rents, income and profits from the Mortgaged Property to which the Mortgagor would otherwise be entitled, including those past due and unpaid with full power to make from time to time all adjustments thereto, as may seem proper to the Mortgagee.
The Mortgagee shall not be obligated to perform or discharge, nor does it hereby undertake to perform or discharge, any obligation, duty or liability under any leases, sublease or rental agreements relating to the Mortgaged Property, and the Mortgagor shall and does hereby agree to indemnify and hold the Mortgagee harmless from and against any and all liability, loss or damage which it may or might incur under any such lease, sublease or agreement or under or by reason of the assignment of the rents thereof and from and against any and all claims and demands whatsoever which may be asserted against it by reason of any alleged obligations or undertakings on its part to perform or discharge any of the terms, covenants or agreements contained in any of such leases, provided that the Mortgagor shall not indemnify and hold harmless the Mortgagee from any liability loss or damage resulting from acts or omissions of the Mortgagee which first occur on or after the date the Mortgagee takes possession of the Mortgaged Property. Should the Mortgagee incur any liability, loss or damage by reason of this assignment of leases and rents, or in the defense of any claim or demand, the Mortgagor agrees to reimburse the Mortgagee for the amount thereof, including costs, expenses and reasonable attorneys’ fees, immediately upon demand.
The Mortgagee, or such agent or receiver, in the exercise of the rights and powers conferred upon it by this assignment of leases and rents shall have the full power to use and apply the avails, rents, issues, income and profits of the Mortgaged Property to which the Mortgagor would otherwise be entitled to the payment of or on account of the following items in the order determined by the Mortgagee or receiver to preserve the value of the Mortgaged Property:
Reasonable receiver’s fees;
Application of tenant security deposits as required by Minnesota Statutes, Section 504B.178;
Payment, when due, of prior or current real estate taxes or special assessments with respect to the Mortgaged Property, or the periodic escrow for the payment of the taxes or special assessments;
Payment, when due, of premiums for insurance of the type required by this Mortgage, or the periodic escrow for the payment of the premiums; and
All expenses for normal maintenance of the Mortgaged Property;
provided, however, that nothing herein shall prohibit the right to reinstate pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Section 580.30, or the right to redeem granted pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Sections 580.23 and 581.10.
Any excess cash remaining after paying the expenses listed in clauses I. through V. above shall be applied to the payment of the Note and shall be deemed to be credited to the amount required to be paid to effect a reinstatement or redemption or, if the period of redemption ends without redemption, such remaining amounts shall be paid to the purchaser at the foreclosure sale, its successors or assigns.
The Mortgagor does further specifically authorize and instruct each and every present and future lessee, sublessee, tenant or subtenant of the whole or any part of the Mortgaged Property to pay all unpaid rental agreed upon in any lease or sublease to the Mortgagee upon receipt of demand from the Mortgagee so to pay the same.
Any tenants, subtenants or other occupants of all or any part of the Mortgaged Property are hereby authorized to recognize the claims of the Mortgagee hereunder without investigating the reason for any action taken by the Mortgagee, or the validity or the amount of indebtedness owing to the Mortgagee, or the occurrence or existence of any Event of Default, or the application to be made by the Mortgagee of any amounts to be paid to the Mortgagee. The sole signature of any officer or attorney of the Mortgagee shall be sufficient for the exercise of any rights under this assignment of leases and rents and the sole receipt of the Mortgagee for any sums received by such tenants, subtenants or other occupants shall be a full discharge and release therefor. Checks for all or any part of the rentals collected under this assignment of leases and rents shall be drawn to the exclusive order of the Mortgagee.
SECTION 1.10. FURTHER ASSURANCES. At any time and from time to time, upon request by the Mortgagee, the Mortgagor will make, execute and deliver or cause to be made, executed and delivered, to the Mortgagee, any and all other further instruments, certificates and other documents as may, in the reasonable opinion of the Mortgagee, be necessary or desirable in order to effectuate, complete or perfect, or to continue and preserve, the obligations of the Mortgagor hereunder and under the Note, the Loan Agreement and the mortgage and security interest granted by this Mortgage. Upon any failure by the Mortgagor so to do, the Mortgagee may make, execute and record any and all such instruments, certificates and documents for and in the name of the Mortgagor and the Mortgagor hereby irrevocably appoints the Mortgagee its agent and attorney in fact of the Mortgagor so to do.
SECTION 1.11. EXPENSES. The Mortgagor will pay or reimburse the Mortgagee for all reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses incurred by the Mortgagee in any legal proceeding or dispute of any kind in which the Mortgagee is made a party, or appears as party plaintiff or defendant, affecting the Indebtedness Secured Hereby, this Mortgage, the interest created herein or the Mortgaged Property, including but not limited to the exercise of the power of sale set forth in this Mortgage, any condemnation action involving the Mortgaged Property or any action to protect the security hereof and any such amounts paid by the Mortgagee shall be added to the indebtedness secured by this Mortgage.
SECTION 1.12. BOOKS AND RECORDS; FINANCIAL STATEMENTS. The Mortgagor will keep and maintain full, true and accurate books of account adequate to reflect correctly the results of the operation of the Mortgaged Property, all of which books and records relating thereto shall be open to inspection by the Mortgagee or its representative during normal business hours of the Mortgagor.
SECTION 1.13. HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES. The Mortgagor warrants, covenants and represents that, to the actual knowledge of the Mortgagor, there does not exist in or under the Mortgaged Property any pollutant, toxic or hazardous waste or substance, or any other material the release or disposal of which is regulated by any law, regulation, ordinance or code related to pollution or environmental contamination, and, that, to the actual knowledge of the Mortgagor, no part of the Mortgaged Property was ever used for any industrial or manufacturing purpose or as a dump, sanitary landfill, or gasoline service station, and that, to the actual knowledge of the Mortgagor, there exists on the Mortgaged Property no storage tanks, electrical transformers or other equipment containing PCBs or material amounts of asbestos. The Mortgagor represents that it has received no summons, citations, directives, letters or other written communications from any federal, state or local agency or department concerning the storing, releasing, pumping, pouring, emitting, emptying or dumping of any pollutant, toxic or hazardous waste or substance on the Mortgaged Property.
The Mortgagor covenants and agrees that it shall not, nor shall it permit others to, use the Mortgaged Property for the business of generating, transporting, storing, treating or disposing of any pollutant, toxic or hazardous waste or substance, nor shall it either take or fail to take any action which may result in a release of any hazardous substance from or onto the Mortgaged Property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Mortgagor and its tenants at the Premises shall be entitled to store, use and dispose of hazardous materials on the Premises in the ordinary course of their business provided such storage, use and disposal is in compliance with all applicable local, state and federal laws and regulations. In addition to all rights of access granted the Mortgagee pursuant to Section 1.6 hereof, during the term of the loan provided for under the Loan Agreement, the Mortgagee, or any authorized agent, contractor or representative of the Mortgagee, is hereby irrevocably authorized to enter upon the Mortgaged Property at any time and from time to time for the purpose of performing inspections, taking soil borings or other borings, or conducting any other tests or procedures on, in or about the Mortgaged Property as the Mortgagee deems necessary or appropriate to determine whether any hazardous or toxic substances, including without limitation asbestos or PCBs, are present on, under or about the Mortgaged Property.
The Mortgagor agrees to indemnify and to hold the Mortgagee harmless from any and all claims, causes of action, damages, penalties, and costs (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, consultants’ fees and related expenses which may be asserted against, or incurred by, the Mortgagee resulting from or due to release of any hazardous substance or waste on the Mortgaged Property or arising out of any injury to human health or the environment by reason of the condition of or past activity upon the Mortgaged Property. The Mortgagor’s duty to indemnify and hold harmless includes, but is not limited to, proceedings or actions commenced by any person (including, but not limited to, any federal, state, or local governmental agency or entity) before any court or administrative agency. The Mortgagor further agrees that pursuant to its duty to indemnify under this section, the Mortgagor shall indemnify the Mortgagee against all such expenses incurred by the Mortgagee as they become due and not waiting for the ultimate outcome of the litigation or administrative proceeding. The Mortgagor’s obligations to indemnify and hold the Mortgagee harmless hereunder shall survive repayment of the Mortgage Amount and satisfaction or foreclosure of this Mortgage.
SECTION 1.14. TAX ESCROW. Upon request by the Mortgagee after the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Mortgagor shall pay to the Mortgagee, on each day monthly installments of principal and/or interest are payable under the Note, until the Note is paid in full, a sum equal to one-twelfth (1/12th) of the annual taxes and assessments payable with respect to the Mortgaged Property, all as estimated initially and from time to time determined by the Mortgagee, to be applied by the Mortgagee to pay said taxes and assessments (such amounts being hereinafter referred to as the “Funds”). The Mortgagee shall apply the Funds to pay said taxes and assessments prior to the date that penalty attaches for non-payment. The Funds are hereby pledged as additional security for the Indebtedness Secured Hereby. No interest shall accrue on the Funds.
If the amount of the Funds held by the Mortgagee shall exceed at any time the amount deemed necessary by the Mortgagee to provide for the payment of taxes and assessments, such excess shall, at the option of the Mortgagee, either be promptly repaid to the Mortgagor or be credited to the Mortgagor on the next monthly installment of Funds due. If at any time the Funds are less than the amount deemed necessary by the Mortgagee to pay taxes and assessments as they fall due, the Mortgagor shall promptly pay to the Mortgagee any amount necessary to make up the deficiency upon written notice from the Mortgagee to the Mortgagor requesting payment thereof.
Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under the Loan Agreement, the Mortgagee may apply in any order as the Mortgagee shall determine in its sole discretion, any Funds held by the Mortgagee at the time of application to pay taxes and assessments which are then or will thereafter become due or as a credit against the Indebtedness Secured Hereby. Upon payment in full of all Indebtedness Secured Hereby, the Mortgagee shall promptly refund to the Mortgagor any Funds held by the Mortgagee.
INSURANCE, CONDEMNATION AND USE OF PROCEEDS
SECTION 2.1. INSURANCE. Until the Indebtedness Secured Hereby has been paid in full, the Mortgagor shall obtain and maintain the following:
(a) The Mortgagor shall keep the buildings, structures, fixtures and other improvements now existing or hereafter erected on the Land insured against loss by fire, vandalism, and malicious mischief, perils of extended coverage, and such other hazards, casualties and contingencies as may be specified by the Mortgagee, in an amount not less than the greater of (i) the full replacement cost thereof, and (ii) the full insurable value thereof, and naming the Mortgagee as mortgagee and loss payee. The Mortgagor shall also maintain rent loss or business interruption insurance with respect to such exposures and perils in an amount sufficient to enable the Mortgagor to make the required monthly payments under the Note, to pay taxes and insurance and to continue operations during an assumed reconstruction period of one (1) year, naming the Mortgagee as mortgagee and loss payee. The Mortgagor shall also maintain comprehensive general public liability insurance providing for limits of coverage of not less than $2,000,000 combined single limit coverage, and naming the Mortgagee as an additional insured.
(b) The Mortgagor shall also maintain flood insurance in the event the Mortgagee notifies the Mortgagor that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”) has determined that the Mortgaged Property is located in a flood hazard area. Such insurance must meet FEMA coverage requirements, must name the Mortgagee as loss payee, and must be in an amount equal to the lesser of the Mortgage Amount or the maximum insurance available under the National Flood Insurance Program. The Mortgagor understands and agrees that even though the Mortgaged Property may not be currently located within a FEMA designated flood hazard area or that the community in which the Mortgaged Property is located does not currently participate in the federal flood insurance program, this may change in the future. In the event of the change of such designation, the Mortgagor agrees to obtain the flood insurance required above within forty-five (45) days after receipt of notice thereof from the Mortgagee. The Mortgagor shall reimburse the Mortgagee for all costs and expenses incurred by the Mortgagee in ascertaining from time to time whether the Mortgaged Property is located in a flood hazard area.
(c) All insurance shall be carried in companies licensed to do business in the State of Minnesota and the policies and renewals thereof shall (i) contain a waiver of defense based on coinsurance, (ii) be constantly assigned and pledged to and held by the Mortgagee as additional security for the Indebtedness Secured Hereby, (iii) have attached thereto loss payable clauses (with respect to property insurance) in favor of and in form reasonably acceptable to the Mortgagee, and (iv) provide that the Mortgagee shall receive at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice of cancellation or any substantial modification of the policy; provided, however, if the insurance company fails or refuses to give such notice, the Mortgagor shall do so. The Mortgagor shall provide the Mortgagee with written evidence acceptable to the Mortgagee of all such insurance on the date hereof and prior to each renewal date of such policies of insurance. In default thereof, the Mortgagee may effect any insurance required to be maintained by the Mortgagor pursuant to this Section 2.1 and the amount paid therefor shall become immediately due and payable with interest at a rate equal to the Default Rate (as defined in the Note) or, if such rate is illegal or usurious, at the maximum rate permitted by law, and shall be secured by this Mortgage. The Mortgagor acknowledges that any insurance obtained by the Mortgagee hereunder may be more expensive than the insurance which could be obtained by the Mortgagor and that such coverage may not be as inclusive as the coverage obtained by the Mortgagor due to the fact that it may not include contents coverage or liability coverage. In the event of loss or damage to the Mortgaged Property, the Mortgagor will give prompt written notice thereof to the Mortgagee, who may make proof of loss or damage if not made promptly by the Mortgagor. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Mortgagor hereby authorizes the Mortgagee to settle and compromise all claims on such policies and hereby authorizes and directs each insurance company concerned to make payment for any such loss to the Mortgagor and the Mortgagee jointly. In the event of foreclosure of this Mortgage, all right, title and interest of the Mortgagor in and to any property insurance policies then in force shall pass to the purchaser at the foreclosure sale.
SECTION 2.2. CONDEMNATION. The Mortgagor shall give the Mortgagee immediate written notice of the actual or threatened commencement of any proceedings under condemnation or eminent domain affecting all or any part of the Mortgaged Property or any easement therein or appurtenance thereof. If all or any part of the Mortgaged Property is damaged, taken or acquired, either temporarily or permanently, in any condemnation proceeding, or by exercise of the right of eminent domain, the amount of any award or other payment for such taking, acquisition or damages made in consideration thereof, to the extent of the full amount of the remaining unpaid indebtedness secured by this instrument, is hereby assigned to the Mortgagee, who is empowered to collect and receive the any award or payment in excess of $100,000, and to give proper receipts therefor in the name of the Mortgagor and the same shall be paid forthwith to the Mortgagee, to be applied to the Indebtedness Secured Hereby, and any excess shall be paid to the Mortgagor.
SECTION 2.3. THE MORTGAGOR TO REPAIR, REPLACE, REBUILD OR RESTORE. If any Indebtedness Secured Hereby is outstanding when all or any part of the Mortgaged Property is destroyed or damaged:
(a) all proceeds of any insurance claim shall be paid directly to the Mortgagee. Unless the Mortgagor is in full compliance with all of the terms and conditions contained in subsection (b) of this Section 2.3, the Mortgagee may, at its option, apply all such proceeds as a prepayment of the Note; and
(b) the Mortgagee shall make available the proceeds, less such sum, if any, required for payment of all expenses reasonably incurred by Mortgage in collecting the same (the “Net Proceeds”), to payment of the costs of repair, replacement, rebuilding or restoration of the Mortgaged Property (collectively, the “Restoration”) provided:
(i) no Event of Default, and no event which with the giving of notice or passage of time or both would constitute an Event of Default, has occurred or is then continuing;
(ii) the Mortgagor provides reasonable evidence to the Mortgagee that the Restoration will be completed by the maturity date of the Note, as the same may be extended, and within one (1) year after the date of casualty;
(iii) the Net Proceeds shall be applied by the Mortgagee under such construction and disbursement terms as the Mortgagee may deem reasonably necessary, including, without limitation, deposit by the Mortgagor with the Mortgagee of such additional funds of the Mortgagor as may be required to insure payment of all costs of the Restoration;
(iv) the Mortgagee receives evidence reasonably acceptable to it that the Mortgagor has received all necessary zoning approvals, conditional use permits and/or building permits for the Restoration of the Mortgaged Property;
(v) the Mortgagee receives and approves the plans and specifications for the Restoration, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld; and
(vi) the Mortgaged Property is reappraised at the cost of the Mortgagor, and the outstanding principal balance of the Note is less than or equal to seventy-five percent (75%) of the appraised value of land after completion of the Restoration.
SECTION 3.1. REMEDIES. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default or at any time thereafter, the Mortgagee may, at its option, exercise any and all of the following rights and remedies (and any other rights and remedies available to it under applicable law or any document related hereto):
(a) the Mortgagee shall be entitled to seek immediate appointment of a receiver for the Mortgaged Property in accordance with applicable law; and

(c) the Mortgagee may exercise any of the remedies made available to a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code in effect in the State of Minnesota, or other applicable law, with respect to any of the Mortgaged Property which constitutes personal property, including without limitation the right to take possession thereof, proceeding without judicial process or by judicial process (without a prior hearing or notice thereof, which the Mortgagor hereby waives), and the right to sell, lease or otherwise dispose of or use any or all of such personal property. The Mortgagee may require the Mortgagor to assemble such personal property and make it available to the Mortgagee at a place designated by the Mortgagee which is reasonably convenient to both the Mortgagor and the Mortgagee. If notice to the Mortgagor of any intended disposition of any of the Mortgaged Property constituting personal property or any other intended action is required by law in a particular instance, such notice shall be deemed commercially reasonable if given (in the manner specified in Section 4.2 hereof) at least ten (10) calendar days prior to the date of intended disposition or other action.
In the event of a sale under this Mortgage, whether by virtue of judicial proceedings or otherwise, the Mortgaged Property may, at the option of the Mortgagee, be sold as one parcel and as an entirety or in such parcels, manner and order as the Mortgagee in its sole discretion may elect.
