(b) In the event of default in payment or performance of the Guaranteed Obligations, or any part thereof, when such Guaranteed Obligations become due, whether by its terms, by acceleration, or otherwise, Guarantor shall promptly pay the amount due thereon to Lender without notice or demand, of any kind or nature, in lawful money of the United States of America or perform the obligations to be performed hereunder, and it shall not be necessary for Lender in order to enforce such payment and performance by Guarantor first, or contemporaneously, to institute suit or exhaust remedies against Borrower or others liable on the Guaranteed Obligations, or to enforce any rights, remedies, powers, privileges or benefits of Lender against any property covered by a lien created under the Security Instrument or any other security or collateral which shall ever have been given to secure the Guaranteed Obligations.

Section 5. Other Guaranteed Debt. If Guarantor becomes liable for any indebtedness owing by Borrower to Lender, by endorsement or otherwise, other than under this Guaranty, such liability shall not be in any manner impaired or affected hereby, and the Rights hereunder shall be cumulative of any and all other Rights that Lender may ever have against Guarantor. The exercise by Lender of any Right hereunder or under any other instrument, or at law or in equity, shall not preclude the concurrent or subsequent exercise of any other Right by Lender.
Section 6. Subrogation. Until the Guaranteed Obligations have been paid, in full, Guarantor hereby covenants and agrees that it shall not assert, enforce, or otherwise exercise (a) any right of subrogation to any of the Rights or liens of Lender or any other beneficiary against Borrower or its Affiliates or any other guarantor of the Guaranteed Obligations or any collateral or other security, or (b) unless such rights are expressly made subordinate to the Guaranteed Obligations (in form and upon terms acceptable to Lender) and the rights of Lender under this Guaranty and the Loan Documents, any right of recourse, reimbursement, contribution, indemnification, or similar right against Borrower or its Affiliates or any other guarantor of all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations.
Section 7. Subordinated Debt. All principal of and interest on all indebtedness, liabilities, and obligations of Borrower or its Affiliates to Guarantor (the “Subordinated Debt”) now or hereafter existing, due or to become due to Guarantor, or held or to be held by Guarantor, whether created directly or acquired by assignment or otherwise, and whether evidenced by written instrument or not, shall be expressly subordinated to the Guaranteed Obligations. Until such time as the Guaranteed Obligations are paid and performed in full and all commitments to lend under the Loan Documents have terminated, Guarantor agrees not to receive or accept any payment from Borrower with respect to the Subordinated Debt at any time an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing; and, in the event Guarantor receives any payment on the Subordinated Debt in violation of the foregoing, Guarantor will hold any such payment in trust for Lender and forthwith turn it over to Lender in the form received, to be applied to the Guaranteed Obligations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Guaranty shall preclude MHP from receiving distributions of net proceeds as a member of Borrower after adequate provision is made for the payment of amounts then owed under the Loan Documents together with Borrower’s costs and expenses of operation of the Property then due and payable.
Section 8. Obligations Not to be Diminished. Guarantor hereby agrees that its obligations under this Guaranty shall not be released, discharged, diminished, impaired, reduced, or affected for any reason or by the occurrence of any event, including, without limitation, one or more of the following events, whether or not with notice to or the consent of Guarantor: (a) the taking or accepting of collateral as security for any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations or the release, surrender, exchange, or subordination of any collateral now or hereafter securing any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (b) any partial release of the liability of Borrower, Guarantor hereunder, or the full or partial release of any other guarantor or obligor from liability for any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (c) any disability of Borrower, or the dissolution, insolvency, or bankruptcy of Borrower, or any other guarantor, or any other party at any time liable for the payment of any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (d) any renewal, extension, modification, waiver, amendment, or rearrangement of any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations or any instrument, document, or agreement evidencing, securing, or otherwise relating to any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (e) any adjustment, indulgence, forbearance, waiver, or compromise that may be granted or given by Lender to Borrower, Guarantor, or any other party ever liable for any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (f) any neglect, delay, omission, failure, or refusal of Lender to take or prosecute any action for the collection of any of the Guaranteed Obligations or to foreclose or take or prosecute any action in connection with any instrument, document, or agreement evidencing, securing, or otherwise relating to any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (g) the unenforceability or invalidity of any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations or of any instrument, document, or agreement evidencing, securing, or otherwise relating to any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (h) any payment by Borrower or any other party to Lender is held to constitute a preference under applicable bankruptcy or insolvency law or if for any other reason Lender is required to refund any payment or pay the amount thereof to someone else; (i) the settlement or compromise of any other guaranty or security for the Guaranteed Obligations; (j) the non-perfection of any security interest or lien securing any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (k) any impairment of any collateral securing any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (l) the failure of Lender to sell any collateral securing any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations in a commercially reasonable manner or as otherwise required by law; (m) any change in the corporate existence, structure, or ownership of Borrower; or (n) any other circumstance which might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or discharge of, Borrower or Guarantor.
Section 9. Waivers.

Section 10. Insolvency. Should Guarantor become insolvent, or fail to pay Guarantor’s debts generally as they become due, or voluntarily seek, consent to, or acquiesce in the benefit or benefits of any Debtor Relief Law, or become a party to (or be made the subject of) any proceeding provided for by any Debtor Relief Law (other than as a creditor or claimant) that could suspend or otherwise adversely affect the rights of Lender granted hereunder, then, in any such event, the Guaranteed Obligations shall be, as between Guarantor and Lender, a fully matured, due, and payable obligation of Guarantor to Lender (without regard to whether Borrower is then in default under the Loan Agreement or whether the Obligations, or any part thereof is then due and owing by Borrower to Lender), payable in full by Guarantor to Lender upon demand, which shall be the estimated amount owing in respect of the contingent claim created hereunder. In the event of the death of Guarantor, the obligations hereunder shall not terminate, and it will not be a default hereunder if the persons or entities succeeding to the interests of Guarantor in Borrower each execute a guaranty in the same form as this Guaranty within ninety (90) days of succeeding to such interests.
Section 11. Termination. Except to the extent of any earlier termination of the Guaranteed Obligations in the manner contemplated above, Guarantor’s obligations hereunder shall remain in full force and effect until all commitments to lend under the Loan Documents have terminated, and the Guaranteed Obligations has been paid in full. If at any time any payment of the principal of or interest or any other amount payable by Borrower under the Loan Documents is rescinded or must be otherwise restored or returned upon the insolvency, bankruptcy, or reorganization of Borrower or otherwise, Guarantor’s obligations hereunder with respect to such payment shall be reinstated as though such payment had been due but not made at such time.
Section 12. Representations and Warranties. Guarantor represents and warrants as follows:
(a) Guarantor has the power and authority and legal right to execute, deliver, and perform its obligations under this Guaranty and this Guaranty constitutes the legal, valid, and binding obligation of Guarantor, enforceable against Guarantor in accordance with its terms, except as limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, or other laws of general application relating to the enforcement of creditor’s rights.
(b) The execution, delivery, and performance by Guarantor of this Guaranty do not and will not violate or conflict with any law, rule, or regulation or any order, writ, injunction, or decree of any court, governmental authority or agency, or arbitrator and do not and will not conflict with, result in a breach of, or constitute a default under, or result in the imposition of any lien upon any assets of Guarantor pursuant to the provisions of any indenture, Security Instrument, security agreement, franchise, permit, license, or other instrument or agreement to which Guarantor or its properties are bound.
(c) No authorization, approval, or consent of, and no filing or registration with, any court, governmental authority, or third party is necessary for the execution, delivery, or performance by Guarantor of this Guaranty or the validity or enforceability thereof.
(d) Guarantor has, independently and without reliance upon Lender and based upon such documents and information as Guarantor has deemed appropriate, made its own analysis and decision to enter into this Guaranty, and Guarantor has adequate means to obtain from Borrower on a continuing basis information concerning the financial condition and assets of Borrower, and Guarantor is not relying upon Lender to provide (and Lender shall have no duty to provide) any such information to Guarantor either now or in the future.
Section 13. Value of Consideration. The value of the consideration received and to be received by Guarantor is reasonably worth at least as much as the liability and obligation of Guarantor hereunder, and such liability and obligation may reasonably be expected to benefit Guarantor directly or indirectly.
GUARANTY AGREEMENT – Page 4
Section 14. Covenants. So long as this Guaranty remains in full force and effect, Guarantor shall, unless Lender shall otherwise consent in writing:
(a) Furnish to Lender as soon as available, and in any event within ninety (90) days after the end of each fiscal year of Guarantor, beginning with the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021, in such detail as required by Lender, (i) a copy of the financial statements of Guarantor for such fiscal year and (ii) a certificate of Guarantor to Lender (A) stating that to the best of Guarantor’s knowledge no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, or if in Guarantor’s opinion a Default or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, a statement as to the nature thereof and (B) disclosing and certifying as to all material changes in Guarantor’s debt or net worth or otherwise certifying that there has been no material change in Guarantor’s personal debt or net worth since the previous financial statement delivered to Lender;
(b) Furnish to Lender written notice of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default promptly upon obtaining knowledge thereof;

Section 15. No Fraudulent Transfer. It is the intention of Guarantor and Lender that the amount of the Guaranteed Obligations guaranteed by Guarantor by this Guaranty shall be in, but not in excess of, the maximum amount permitted by fraudulent conveyance, fraudulent transfer, or similar laws applicable to Guarantor. Accordingly, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Guaranty or any other agreement or instrument executed in connection with the payment of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, the amount of the Guaranteed Obligations guaranteed by Guarantor by this Guaranty shall be limited to that amount which after giving effect thereto would not (a) render Guarantor insolvent, (b) result in the fair saleable value of the assets of Guarantor being less than the amount required to pay its debts and other liabilities (including contingent liabilities) as they mature, or (c) leave Guarantor with unreasonably small capital to carry out its business as now conducted and as proposed to be conducted, including its capital needs, as such concepts described in clauses (a), (b) and (c) of this Section 14, are determined under applicable law, if the obligations of Guarantor hereunder would otherwise be set aside, terminated, annulled or avoided for such reason by a court of competent jurisdiction in a proceeding actually pending before such court. For purposes of this Guaranty, the term “applicable law” means as to Guarantor each statute, law, ordinance, regulation, order, judgment, injunction or decree of the United States or any state or commonwealth, any municipality, any foreign country, or any territory, possession or tribunal applicable to Guarantor.
Section 16. Successors and Assigns. This Guaranty is for the benefit of Lender and its successors and assigns, and, in the event of an assignment of the Guaranteed Obligations in accordance with the provisions of the Loan Agreement, or any part thereof, the rights hereunder, to the extent applicable to the indebtedness so assigned, may be transferred with such indebtedness. This Guaranty is binding on Guarantor, and its successors and permitted assigns; provided that, Guarantor may not assign its obligations under this Guaranty without obtaining Lender’s prior written consent, and any assignment purported to be made without Lender’s prior written consent shall be null and void.
Section 17. Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement, and all of the terms thereof, are incorporated herein by reference, the same as if stated verbatim herein, and Guarantor agrees that Lender may exercise any and all rights granted to it under the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents without affecting the validity or enforceability of this Guaranty.
Section 18. Amendments. No amendment or waiver of any provision herein nor consent to any departure therefrom by Guarantor shall be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by Lender, and then, such amendment, waiver, or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given.

Section 19. Setoff Rights. Lender shall have the right to set off and apply against this Guaranty or the Guaranteed Obligations or both, at any time and without notice to Guarantor, any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) or other sums at any time credited by or owing from Lender to Guarantor whether or not the Guaranteed Obligations is then due and irrespective of whether or not Lender shall have made any demand under this Guaranty.

Section 21. Governing Law. This Guaranty is executed and delivered as an incident to a lending transaction negotiated and consummated in Franklin or Granville County, North Carolina, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of North Carolina. Borrower, for itself and its successors and assigns, hereby irrevocably (a) submits to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in North Carolina, (b) waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, and objection that it may now or in the future have to the laying of venue of any litigation arising out of or in connection with any Loan Document brought in the state and federal courts in North Carolina, (c) waives any objection it may now or hereafter have as to the venue of any such action or proceeding brought in such court or that such court is an inconvenient forum, and (d) agrees that any legal proceeding against any party to this Guaranty arising out of or in connection with this Guaranty may be brought in one of the foregoing courts. Borrower agrees that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, service of process upon it may be made by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, at its address specified herein. Nothing herein shall affect the right of Lender to serve process in any other manner permitted by law or shall limit the right of Lender to bring any action or proceeding against Guarantor or with respect to any of Guarantor’s property in courts in other jurisdictions. The scope of each of the foregoing waivers is intended to be all encompassing of any and all disputes that may be filed in any court and that relate to the subject matter of this transaction, including, without limitation, contract claims, tort claims, breach of duty claims, and all other common law and statutory claims. Guarantor acknowledges that these waivers are a material inducement to Lender’s agreement to enter into agreements and obligations evidenced by the Loan Agreement, that Lender has already relied on these waivers and will continue to rely on each of these waivers in related future dealings. The waivers in this section are irrevocable, meaning that they may not be modified either orally or in writing, and these waivers apply to any future renewals, extensions, amendments, modifications, or replacements in respect of the documents related in any manner to the transactions evidenced by the Loan Agreement. In connection with any litigation, this Guaranty may be filed as a written consent to a trial by the court.
Section 22. Waiver Of Right To Trial By Jury. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, GUARANTOR HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, SUIT, PROCEEDING, OR COUNTERCLAIM THAT RELATES TO OR ARISES OUT OF THIS GUARANTY OR ANY OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR THE ACTS OR FAILURE TO ACT OF OR BY BENEFICIARY IN THE ENFORCEMENT OF ANY OF THE TERMS OR PROVISIONS OF THIS GUARANTY OR THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS.
