(b) Payments Current. No payment required under the Mortgage Loan is 30 days or more delinquent nor has any payment under the Mortgage Loan (other than a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan) been 30 days or more delinquent at any time since the origination of the Mortgage Loan; and, if the Mortgage Loan is a Co-op Loan, no foreclosure action or private or public sale under the Uniform Commercial Code has ever to the knowledge of Seller, been threatened or commenced with respect to the Co-op Loan.
(c) Origination Date. Unless otherwise approved by Buyer and other than with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan, the initial Purchase Date is no more than (i) with respect to Mortgage Loans other than Correspondent Mortgage Loans in non-escrow states, thirty (30) days following the origination date of the Mortgage Note; (ii) with respect to Mortgage Loans other than Correspondent Mortgage Loans in escrow states, forty-five (45) days following the origination date of the Mortgage Note and (iii) with respect to Correspondent Mortgage Loans, sixty (60) days following the origination date of the Mortgage Note.
(e) No Outstanding Charges. There are no defaults in complying with the terms of the Mortgage, and all taxes, governmental assessments, insurance premiums, water, sewer and municipal charges, leasehold payments or ground rents which previously became due and owing have been paid, or an escrow of funds has been established in an amount sufficient to pay for every such item which remains unpaid and which has been assessed but is not yet due and payable. Other than with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan, Seller has not advanced funds, or induced, solicited or knowingly received any advance of funds by a party other than the Mortgagor, directly or indirectly, for the payment of any amount required under the Mortgage Loan, except for interest accruing from the date of the Mortgage Note or date of disbursement of the Mortgage Loan proceeds, whichever is earlier, to the day which precedes by one month the Due Date of the first installment of principal and interest.
(f) Original Terms Unmodified. Other than with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan, the terms of the Mortgage Note (and the Proprietary Lease, the Assignment of Proprietary Lease and Stock Power with respect to each Co-op Loan) and Mortgage have not been impaired, waived, altered or modified in any respect, from the date of origination except by a written instrument which has been recorded, if necessary to protect the interests of Buyer, and which has been delivered to the Custodian or to such other Person as Buyer shall designate in writing, and the terms of which are reflected in the Mortgage Loan Schedule. The substance of any such waiver, alteration or modification has been approved by the issuer of any related PMI Policy and the title insurer, if any, to the extent required by the policy, and its terms are reflected on the Mortgage Loan Schedule, if applicable. No Mortgagor has been released, in whole or in part, except in connection with an assumption agreement, approved by the issuer of any related PMI Policy and the issuer of the title insurer, to the extent required by the policy, and which assumption agreement is part of the Mortgage File delivered to the Custodian or to such other Person as Buyer shall designate in writing and the terms of which are reflected in the Mortgage Loan Schedule. Each Ginnie Mae Modified Loan has been modified in accordance with the Ginnie Mae guide.
(g) No Defenses. The Mortgage Loan (and the Assignment of Proprietary Lease related to each Co-op 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 with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan, the terms of the Modification Agreement, or the exercise of any right thereunder, render either the Mortgage Note or the Mortgage or with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan, the Modification Agreement unenforceable, in whole or in part, or subject to any right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense, including without limitation the defense of usury, and no such right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense has been asserted with respect thereto, and no Mortgagor was a debtor in any state or federal bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding at, or subsequent to, the time the Mortgage Loan was originated or with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan, at the time the Modification Agreement was entered into.
(h) Hazard Insurance. Pursuant to the terms of the Mortgage, all buildings or other improvements upon the Mortgaged Property are insured by a generally acceptable insurer against loss by fire, hazards of extended coverage and such other hazards as are provided for in the Fannie Mae guides or by Freddie Mac, as well as all additional requirements set forth in the Approved Underwriting Guidelines. If required by the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, and the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended, each Mortgage Loan is covered by a flood insurance policy meeting the requirements of the current guidelines of the Federal Insurance Administration as in effect which policy conforms to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as well as all additional requirements set forth in the Servicing Agreement. All individual insurance policies contain a standard mortgagee clause naming Seller and its successors and assigns as mortgagee, and all premiums thereon have been paid and such policies may not be reduced, terminated or cancelled without 30 days prior written notice to the mortgagee. The Mortgage obligates the Mortgagor thereunder to maintain the hazard insurance policy at the Mortgagors cost and expense, and on the Mortgagors failure to do so, authorizes the holder of the Mortgage to obtain and maintain such insurance at such Mortgagors cost and expense, and to seek reimbursement therefor from the 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, is in full force and effect, and will be in full force and effect and inure to the benefit of Buyer upon the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Seller has not engaged in, and has no knowledge of the Mortgagors or any servicers 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 such policy, 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 or entity, and no such unlawful items have been received, retained or realized by Seller.
(j) No Satisfaction of Mortgage. The Mortgage has not been satisfied, canceled, subordinated or rescinded, in whole or in part, and the Mortgaged Property has not been released from the lien of the Mortgage, in whole or in part, nor has any instrument been executed that would affect any such release, cancellation, subordination or rescission. Other than with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan, Seller has not waived the performance by the Mortgagor of any action, if the Mortgagors failure to perform such action would cause the Mortgage Loan to be in default, nor has Seller waived any default resulting from any action or inaction by the Mortgagor.
(t) No Defaults. Other than payments due but not yet 30 days or more delinquent, there is no default, breach, violation or event which would permit acceleration existing under the Mortgage or the Mortgage Note and no event which, with the passage of time or with notice and the expiration of any grace or cure period, would constitute a default, breach, violation or event which would permit acceleration, and neither Seller nor any of its affiliates nor any of their respective predecessors, have waived any default, breach, violation or event which would permit acceleration other than with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan in accordance with the Ginnie Mae guide and the Modification Agreement; and with respect to each Co-op Loan, there is no default in complying with the terms of the Mortgage Note, the Assignment of Proprietary Lease and the Proprietary Lease and all maintenance charges and assessments (including assessments payable in the future installments, which previously became due and owing) have been paid, and Seller has the right under the terms of the Mortgage Note, Assignment of Proprietary Lease and Recognition Agreement to pay any maintenance charges or assessments owed by the Mortgagor.
(w) Origination; Payment Terms. Except with respect to a Correspondent Mortgage Loan, the Mortgage Loan was originated by Seller. Seller is a mortgagee approved by the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development pursuant to Sections 203 and 211 of the National Housing Act, a savings and loan association, a savings bank, a commercial bank, credit union, insurance company or other similar institution which is supervised and examined by a federal or state authority. The documents, instruments and agreements submitted for loan underwriting were not falsified and contain no untrue statement of material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the information and statements therein not misleading. No Mortgage Loan contains terms or provisions which would result in negative amortization. Principal payments on the Mortgage Loan that is not a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan commenced no more than sixty days after funds were disbursed in connection with the Mortgage Loan. The mortgage interest rate as well as the lifetime rate cap and the periodic cap are as set forth on the Mortgage Loan Schedule. The Mortgage Note is payable in equal monthly installments of principal and interest, which installments of interest, with respect to adjustable rate Mortgage Loans, are subject to change due to the adjustments to the mortgage interest rate on each interest rate adjustment date, with interest calculated and payable in arrears, sufficient to amortize the Mortgage Loan fully by the stated maturity date, over an original term of not more than thirty years from commencement of amortization. Unless otherwise specified, the Mortgage Loan is payable on the first day of each month. There are no Mortgage Loans which contain a provision allowing the Mortgagor to convert the Mortgage Note from an adjustable interest rate Mortgage Note to a fixed interest rate Mortgage Note.
(dd) Delivery of Mortgage Documents. The Mortgage Note, the Mortgage, the Assignment of Mortgage and any other documents required to be delivered under the Custodial Agreement for each Mortgage Loan have been delivered to the Custodian including, the Modification Agreement with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan. Seller is in possession of a complete, true and accurate Mortgage File, except for such documents the originals of which have been delivered to the Custodian.
(kk) Mortgaged Property Undamaged; No Condemnation Proceedings. There is no proceeding pending or, to the knowledge of the Seller, threatened for the total or partial condemnation of the Mortgaged Property, other than with respect to a Ginnie Mae Modified Loan. The Mortgaged Property is undamaged by waste, fire, earthquake or earth movement, windstorm, flood, tornado or other casualty so as to affect adversely the value of the Mortgaged Property as security for the Mortgage Loan or the use for which the premises were intended and each Mortgaged Property is in good repair.
(ggg) Recordation. Each original Mortgage was recorded and, except for those Mortgage Loans subject to the MERS identification system, all subsequent assignments of the original Mortgage (other than the assignment to Buyer) have been recorded in the appropriate jurisdictions wherein such recordation is necessary to perfect the lien thereof as against creditors of Seller, or is in the process of being recorded. With respect to each Ginnie Mae Modified Loan, the related Modification Agreement has been recorded or has been sent for recordation.
