(i) all books, documents, files, ledgers and records (whether on computer or otherwise) covering or otherwise related to any of the property described in the foregoing granting clauses.
No submission by the Debtor to the Lender of a schedule or other particular identification of Property shall be necessary to vest in the Lender the Liens contemplated by this Agreement in each and every item of Property of the Debtor now existing or hereafter acquired, incurred, created, arising or entered into, but rather such Liens shall vest in the Lender immediately upon the acquisition, creation, incurring or arising of, or entering into, any such item of Property without the necessity for any other or further action by the Debtor or by the Lender. The Debtor shall take such steps and observe such formalities as the Lender may request from time to time to create and maintain in favor of the Lender the Liens contemplated by this Agreement in all of the Property, whether now owned or hereafter acquired by the Debtor, and whether now existing or hereafter incurred, created, arising or entered into.
Section 2.2 Absolute Assignment. Debtor absolutely and unconditionally assigns and transfers to Lender all Leases and Rents.

EVENTS OF DEFAULT
Section 5.1 Events of Default. The occurrence of any of the following events shall constitute an event of default (an “Event of Default”) under this Agreement (whatever the reason for such event and whether or not it shall be voluntary or involuntary or be effected by operation of law or pursuant to any Governmental Requirement):
(a) an “Event of Default” shall occur under the Loan Agreement; or
(b) any representation or warranty made in this Agreement or in any of the other Loan Documents shall prove to be false or misleading in any material respect as of the time made; or
(c) any report, certificate, financial statement or other instrument furnished in connection with the Loan, this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, shall prove to be false or misleading in any material respect as of the time made; or
(d) default shall be made in the due observance or performance of any covenant, condition or agreement on the part of the Debtor to be observed or performed pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (other than any covenant, condition or agreement, default in the observance or performance of which is elsewhere in this Section 5.1 specifically dealt with) and such default shall continue unremedied until the date that is 15 days after written notice by the Lender to the Debtor; provided that if such default is of a kind which cannot reasonably be cured within such thirty-day period, the Debtor shall have a reasonable period of time (not to exceed 30 days from the receipt said notice) within which to cure such default, provided that it begins to cure the default promptly after its receipt of such written notice, and proceeds in good faith, and with due diligence, to cure such default; or
(e) any default or event of default, as therein defined, shall occur under any of the other Loan Documents (after giving effect to any applicable notice, grace or cure period specified therein).
Section 6.1 Certain Rights of Lender After Default. If an Event of Default exists that does not already result in the automatic acceleration of the Obligations under another Loan Document, the Lender shall have, in addition to any other rights under this Agreement or the UCC or under applicable law, the right, without notice to the Debtor (or with notice to the Debtor if notice is required and cannot be waived under applicable law), to take any or all of the following actions at the same or different times:
(a) The Lender may exercise any rights, powers and remedies of the Debtor in connection with any Contract or otherwise in respect of the Property, including any rights of the Debtor to demand or otherwise require payment of any amount under, or performance of any provision of, any Contract, and to modify, amend, terminate, replace, settle or compromise any Contract or any sum payable thereunder.
(b) The Lender may (1) notify account debtors that Accounts and Contracts have been assigned to the Lender, demand and receive information from account debtors with respect to Accounts and Contracts, forward invoices to account debtors directing them to make payments to the Lender, collect all Accounts and Contracts in the Lender’s or the Debtor’s name and take control of any cash or non-cash proceeds of Property; (2) enforce payment of any Accounts and Contracts, prosecute any action or proceeding with respect to Accounts and Contracts, extend the time of payment of Accounts and Contracts, make allowances and adjustments with respect to Accounts and Contracts and issue credits against Accounts and Contracts, all in the name of the Lender or the Debtor; (3) settle, compromise, extend, renew, release, terminate or discharge, in whole or in part, any Account or Contract or deal with the same as the Lender may deem advisable; and (4) require the Debtor to open all mail only in the presence of a representative of the Lender, who may take therefrom any remittance on any of the Property.
(c) The Lender may (1) enter upon the Premises or any other place where any Property is located, and through self-help and without judicial process, without first obtaining a final judgment or giving the Debtor notice and opportunity for a hearing and without any obligation to pay rent, (A) remove the Property therefrom to the premises of the Lender or its agent for such time as the Lender may desire to collect or liquidate the Property or (B) take possession of any or all of the Property, exclude the Debtor therefrom, and hold, use, administer, manage and operate the same to the extent that the Debtor could do so, without any liability to the Lender resulting therefrom; and the Lender may collect, receive and receipt for all proceeds accruing from such operation and management, and exercise every power, right and privilege of the Debtor with respect to the Property; (2) render any Property unusable; (3) require the Debtor to assemble the Tangible Property and make it available to the Lender at the Debtor’s premises or any other place selected by the Lender, and to make available to the Lender all of the Debtor’s premises and facilities for the purpose of the Lender’s taking possession of, removing or putting the Tangible Property in salable form; and (4) use, and permit the Lender or any purchaser of any of the Property from the Lender to use, without charge, the Debtor’s labels, General Intangibles and advertising matter or any property of a similar nature, as it pertains to or is included in the Property, in advertising, preparing for sale and selling any Property; and the Debtor’s rights under all licenses, franchise agreements and other General Intangibles shall inure to the Lender’s benefit.
(d) The Lender at its option, shall have the right, power and authority without the need to take possession of the Debtor’s Homes or to obtain the appointment of a receiver, to exercise and enforce any or all of the following rights and remedies with respect to Rents and Leases:
(1) to terminate the license granted to the Debtor to collect the Rents under Sections 2.1 and 2.2, to notify the tenants under the Leases or any other parties in possession of any of the Debtor’s Homes to pay all Rents directly to the Lender and, without taking possession, in the Lender’s own name to demand, collect, receive, sue for, attach and levy the Rents, to give proper receipts, releases and acquittances therefor; and
(2) to take whatever legal proceedings may appear necessary or desirable to enforce any obligation of the Debtor under this Agreement.
(e) The Lender, without demand of performance or other demand, advertisement or notice of any kind (except any notice required by law of a proposed disposition of a Property, which may be given in the manner specified in Section 7.1) to or upon the Debtor or any other person (all of which demands, advertisements and notices are hereby expressly waived, to the extent permitted by law), may forthwith collect, receive, appropriate, repossess and realize upon all or any part of the Property, and may forthwith sell, lease, license, assign, give options to purchase, or sell or otherwise dispose of and deliver all or any part of the Property (or contract to do so), in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at any exchange, broker’s board or at any of the Lender’s offices or while situated on the Debtor’s premises or elsewhere at such prices as the Lender may deem best, for cash or on credit or for future delivery without assumption of any credit risk. To the extent permitted by law, the Property shall be sold free of any right of redemption, which right of redemption the Debtor hereby releases. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Debtor waives all claims, damages, and demands against the Lender arising out of the repossession, retention or sale of the Property.
(f) Lender may terminate the revocable license granted to Debtor, and Lender shall immediately have all rights, powers and authority granted to Debtor under any Lease (including the right, power and authority to modify the terms of any such Lease, or extend or terminate any such Lease) and, without notice, Lender shall be entitled to all Rents as they become due and payable, including Rents then due and unpaid. During the continuance of an Event of Default, Debtor authorizes Lender to collect, sue for and compromise Rents and directs each tenant of the Property to pay all Rents to, or as directed by, Lender, and Debtor shall, upon Debtor’s receipt of any Rents from any sources, pay the total amount of such receipts to Lender. Although the foregoing rights of Lender are self-effecting, at any time during the continuance of an Event of Default, Lender may make demand for all Rents, and Lender may give, and Debtor hereby irrevocably authorizes Lender to give, notice to all tenants of the Property instructing them to pay all Rents to Lender. No tenant shall be obligated to inquire further as to the occurrence or continuance of an Event of Default, and no tenant shall be obligated to pay to Debtor any amounts that are actually paid to Lender in response to such a notice. Any such notice by Lender shall be delivered to each tenant personally, by mail or by delivering such demand to each rental unit.
Section 6.2 Repossession of the Property; Care and Custody of the Property; etc.
(a) The Debtor shall give the Lender written notice in the manner set forth in Section 7.1 within 24 hours of the date of repossession if the Debtor alleges that any other property of the Debtor was left on or in the repossessed Property at the time of repossession; and such notice shall be an express condition precedent to any action for loss or damages in connection therewith. After receiving any such notice the Lender will have a reasonable time to notify the Debtor as to where the Debtor can collect such property.
(b) The Debtor irrevocably invites the Lender and its agents to enter upon any premises on which any of the Property is now or hereafter located for all purposes related to the Property, including repossession thereof, and consents to any such entry and repossession. Any such entry by the Lender or its agents shall not be a trespass upon such premises, and any such repossession shall not constitute conversion of any Property. The Debtor agrees to indemnify and hold the Lender harmless against, and hereby releases the Lender from, any actions, claims, costs, liabilities or expenses arising directly or indirectly from any entry upon such premises and any repossession of any Property.
(c) If the Lender shall repossess any Property at a time when no Event of Default exists and the repossessed Property is thereafter returned to the Debtor, the damages therefor, if any, shall not exceed the fair rental value of the repossessed Property for the time it was in the Lender’s possession.
(d) The Lender shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of any Property in its possession if it takes such reasonable actions for that purpose as the Debtor shall request in writing, but the Lender shall have sole power to determine whether such actions are reasonable. Any omission to do any act not requested by the Debtor shall not be deemed a failure to exercise reasonable care.
Section 6.3 Application of Proceeds. Unless prohibited by applicable law, the Lender shall have the continuing exclusive right to apply and reapply the proceeds, including cash and noncash proceeds (sales on credit or notes and otherwise) resulting from the exercise of any of the rights, powers and remedies of the Lender under this Agreement, against the Obligations, in such order and in such proportions as the Lender may deem advisable. All expenses incurred, including all costs and expenses incurred in securing the possession of Property, moving, storing, repairing or finishing the manufacture of Property, and preparing the same for sale, shall become part of the Obligations secured hereby. The Guarantors shall remain liable to the Lender for any deficiency.
Section 6.4 Attorney-in-Fact After Default. The Debtor hereby constitutes and appoints the Lender, or any other person whom the Lender may designate, as the Debtor’s attorney-in-fact, at the Debtor’s cost and expense, to exercise at any time when an Event of Default exists, the following powers, all of which, being coupled with an interest, shall be irrevocable until the Lender’s Liens hereunder have been terminated in accordance with Section 7.17: (a) to sell or assign any of the Property upon such terms, for such amounts and at such times as the Lender deems advisable and to execute any bills of sale or assignments in the name of the Debtor in relation thereto; (b) to take control, in any manner, of any item of payment on, or proceeds of the Property; (c) to use the information recorded on or contained in any data processing equipment and computer hardware and software relating to the Property to which the Debtor has access; (d) to settle, adjust, compromise, extend, renew, discharge, terminate or release the Property in whole or in part; (e) settle, adjust or compromise any legal proceedings brought to collect the Property; (f) to prepare, file and sign the Debtor’s name on any proof of claim in bankruptcy or similar document against any Account debtor; (g) to prepare, file and sign the Debtor’s name on any notice of Lien, assignment or satisfaction or termination of Lien or similar document in connection with the Property; (h) to sign, authenticate or endorse the name of the Debtor upon any chattel paper (tangible or electronic), document, instrument, invoice or similar document or agreement relating to the Property; (i) to use the Debtor’s stationery and to sign the name of the Debtor to verifications of the Accounts and Contracts and notices thereof to Account debtors; (j) to notify postal authorities to change the Debtor’s mailing address to an address designated by the Lender for receipt of payments on Accounts and Contracts; (k) to receive all cash dividends otherwise payable to the Debtor; (l) exercise all of the Debtor’s other rights, powers and remedies with respect to the Property; and (m) to do all acts and things necessary, in the Lender’s sole judgment, to carry out the purposes of this Agreement or to fulfill the Debtor’s obligations hereunder.
Section 6.5 No Obligation to Pursue Others. The Debtor agrees that the Lender has no obligation to attempt to satisfy the Obligations by collecting them from any other person liable for them and the Lender may release, modify or waive any collateral provided by any other person to secure any of the Obligations, all without affecting the Lender’s rights against the Debtor. The Debtor waives any right it may have to require the Lender to pursue any other person for any of the Obligations, and that each of the Obligations may be enforced against the Debtor without the necessity of joining any other Person, any other holders of Liens in any Property or any other Person, as a party.
Section 6.6 Compliance with Other Laws. The Lender may comply with any applicable state or federal law requirements in connection with a disposition of the Property and such compliance will not be considered adversely to affect the commercial reasonableness of any sale of the Property.
Section 6.7 Warranties of Title. The Lender may in its sole discretion disclaim any warranties of title or the like in the sale or other disposition of the Property. Such disclaimer will not be considered adversely to affect the commercial reasonableness of any sale of the Property.
Section 6.8 Default Rate. If an Event of Default exists, the Obligations shall bear interest at the Default Rate, until the earlier of (a) such time as all of the Obligations are paid in full or (b) no such Event of Default exists.

Section 7.2 Expenses. The Debtor shall promptly on demand pay all costs and expenses, including the reasonable and actual fees and disbursements of counsel to the Lender, incurred by the Lender in connection with (a) the negotiation, preparation and review of this Agreement (whether or not the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be consummated), (b) the enforcement of this Agreement, (c) the custody and preservation of the Property, (d) the protection or perfection of the Lender’s rights and interests under this Agreement in the Property, (e) the exercise by or on behalf of the Lender of any of its rights, powers or remedies under this Agreement and (f) the prosecution or defense of any action or proceeding by or against the Lender, the Debtor, any Guarantor, any Account debtor, or any one or more of them, concerning any matter related to this Agreement, any of the Property, or any of the Obligations. All such amounts shall bear interest from the date demand is made at the Default Rate and shall be included in the Obligations secured hereby. The Debtor’s obligations under this Section 7.2 shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.
Section 7.3 Successors and Assigns. Whenever in this Agreement any party hereto is referred to, such reference shall be deemed to include the successors and assigns of such party or any other person who becomes bound by this Agreement as a debtor, except that the Debtor may not assign or transfer this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Lender; and all covenants and agreements of the Debtor contained in this Agreement shall bind the Debtor’s successors and assigns or any other person who becomes bound by this Agreement as a debtor and shall inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the Lender.

Section 7.5 Independent Obligations. The Debtor agrees that each of the obligations of the Debtor to the Lender under this Agreement may be enforced against the Debtor without the necessity of joining any other obligor, any other holders of Liens in any Property or any other Person, as a party.
Section 7.6 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the internal laws of the State of Tennessee (without regard to conflict of law principles) except as required by mandatory provisions of law and except to the extent that the validity, perfection and enforcement of the Liens on the Property are governed by the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Tennessee.
Section 7.7 Date of Agreement. The date of this Agreement is intended as a date for the convenient identification of this Agreement and is not intended to indicate that this Agreement was executed and delivered on that date.

Section 7.9 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which so executed shall be deemed an original, but all such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same agreement.
Section 7.10 No Oral Agreements. This Agreement is the final expression of the agreement between the parties hereto, and this Agreement may not be contradicted by evidence of any prior oral agreement between such parties. All previous oral agreements between the parties hereto have been incorporated into this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and there is no unwritten oral agreement between the parties hereto in existence.
Section 7.11 Waiver and Election. The exercise by the Lender of any option given under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of the right to exercise any other option. No failure or delay on the part of the Lender in exercising any right, power or remedy under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right, power or remedy preclude any further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy. No modification, termination or waiver of any provisions of the Loan Documents, nor consent to any departure by the Debtor therefrom, shall be effective unless in writing and signed by an authorized officer of the Lender, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given. No notice to or demand on the Debtor in any case shall entitle the Debtor to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances.

The Lender does not by virtue of this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents assume any duties, liabilities or obligations with respect to any of the Property unless expressly assumed by the Lender under a separate agreement in writing, and this Agreement shall not be deemed to confer on the Lender any duties or obligations that would make the Lender directly or derivatively liable for any person’s negligent, reckless or willful conduct.

The provisions of this Section 7.12 shall survive the payment of the Obligations in full and the termination, satisfaction, release (in whole or in part) and foreclosure of this Agreement.
Section 7.13 Advances by the Lender. If the Debtor shall fail to comply with any of the provisions of this Agreement, the Lender may (but shall not be required to) make advances to perform the same, and where necessary enter any premises where any Property is located for the purpose of performing the Debtor’s obligations under any such provision. The Debtor agrees to repay all such sums advanced upon demand, with interest from the date such advances are made at the Default Rate, and all sums so advanced with interest shall be a part of the Obligations. The making of any such advances shall not be construed as a waiver by the Lender of any Event of Default resulting from the Debtor’s failure to pay such amounts.
Section 7.14 Rights, Liens and Obligations Absolute. All rights of the Lender hereunder, all Liens granted to the Lender hereunder, and all obligations of the Debtor hereunder, shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by (a) any lack of validity or enforceability as to any other person of any of the Loan Documents, (b) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or any other term of the Obligations, (c) any amendment or waiver of any of the provisions of the Loan Documents as to any other person, and (d) any exchange, release or non-perfection of any other collateral or any release, termination or waiver of any guaranty, for any of the Obligations.
Section 7.15 Debtor Liable on Contracts. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary (a) the Debtor shall remain liable under the Contracts to perform all of the Debtor’s duties and obligations thereunder to the same extent as if this Agreement had not been executed, (b) the exercise by the Lender of any rights hereunder shall not release the Debtor from any of the Debtor’s obligations under the Contracts, and (c) the Lender shall not have any obligation or liability under the Contracts by reason of this Agreement or the receipt by the Lender of any payment hereunder, nor shall the Lender be obligated to perform any of the obligations of the Debtor under the Contracts, to take any action to collect, file and enforce any claim for payment assigned to the Lender hereunder, or to make any inquiry as to the nature or sufficiency of any payment received by it or the adequacy of any performance by any party.
Section 7.16 Security Instrument. If any of the Property is also subject to a valid and enforceable Lien under the Security Instrument and the terms of the Security Instrument are inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement, then, at the option of the Lender, the terms of the Security Instrument shall be controlling with respect to Property that relates to the real property described in the Security Instrument, and the terms of this Agreement shall be controlling in the case of all other Property.
Section 7.17 Termination. This Agreement and the Lender’s Liens in the Property hereunder will not be terminated until one of the Lender’s officers signs a written termination agreement. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in this Agreement, no termination of this Agreement shall in any way affect or impair the representations, warranties, agreements or other obligations of the Debtor or the rights, powers and remedies of the Lender under this Agreement with respect to any transaction or event occurring prior to such termination, all of which shall survive such termination. Even if all of the Obligations outstanding at any one time should be paid in full, this Agreement will continue to secure any Obligations that might later be owed the Lender until such written termination agreement has been executed by the Lender. Except as otherwise provided herein or in the Loan Agreement, in no event shall the Lender be obligated to terminate its Liens under this Agreement or return or release any of the Property to the Debtor (a) until the payment in full of all Obligations then outstanding, (b) if the Lender is obligated to extend credit to the Debtor, (c) if any contingent obligation of the Debtor to the Lender remains outstanding, or (d) until the expiration of any period for avoiding or setting aside any payment to the Lender under bankruptcy or insolvency laws.
Section 7.18 Reinstatement. This Agreement, the obligations of the Debtor hereunder, and the Liens, rights, powers and remedies of the Lender hereunder, shall continue to be effective, or be automatically reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time any amount applied to the payment of any of the Obligations is rescinded or must otherwise be restored or returned to the Debtor, any Guarantor, or any other person (or paid to the creditors of any of them, or to any custodian, receiver, trustee or other officer with similar powers with respect to any of them, or with respect to any part of their property) upon the insolvency, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation or reorganization of the Debtor, any Guarantor, or any such person, or upon or as a result of the appointment of a custodian, receiver, trustee or other officer with respect to any of them, or with respect to any part of their property, or otherwise, all as though such payment had not been made.
Section 7.19 Submission to Jurisdiction. The Debtor irrevocably (a) acknowledges that this Agreement will be accepted by the Lender and performed by the Debtor in the State of Tennessee; (b) submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, Knoxville Division and, outside the subject matter jurisdiction of such court, to the state courts of Blount County, Tennessee (collectively, the “Courts”) over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement to determine any issues arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents (individually, an “Agreement Action”); (c) waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection or defense that the Debtor may now or hereafter have based on improper venue, lack of personal jurisdiction, inconvenience of forum or any similar matter in any Agreement Action brought in any of the Courts; (d) agrees that final judgment in any Agreement Action brought in any of the Courts shall be conclusive and binding upon the Debtor and may be enforced in any other court to the jurisdiction of which the Debtor is subject, by a suit upon such judgment; and (e) AGREES THAT THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION, EVEN IF FOUND NOT TO BE STRICTLY ENFORCEABLE BY ANY COURT, SHALL CONSTITUTE “FAIR WARNING” TO THE DEBTOR THAT THE EXECUTION OF THIS AGREEMENT MAY SUBJECT THE DEBTOR TO THE JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS WITH RESPECT TO ANY AGREEMENT ACTIONS, AND THAT IT IS FORESEEABLE BY THE DEBTOR THAT THE DEBTOR MAY BE SUBJECTED TO THE JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS AND MAY BE SUED IN THE STATE OF TENNESSEE IN ANY AGREEMENT ACTIONS.
