All matters shown on the Title Commitment and Survey, and any amendment to the Title Commitment or Survey, or which would have been shown on a title commitment or survey or amendment thereto if such had been obtained by Purchaser, and which are not objected to pursuant to the terms herein, shall be deemed Permitted Exceptions. Within five (5) days after receipt of the Title Objections, Seller shall notify Purchaser either that: (i) Seller shall correct such Title Objections; or (ii) Seller shall not correct such Title Objections.
