(c) The unpaid principal balance of the Note, all accrued unpaid interest thereon (if not sooner paid), and all other amounts owing to Lender under the Loan Documents shall be due and payable in full on the Maturity Date.
2.4 Application of Payments. Each payment received by Lender with respect to the Note shall be applied: first, to the payment of any Prepayment Premium; second, to the payment of any Late Charge or other such Charges as provided in this Agreement or in the other Loan Documents; third, to the repayment of any amounts advanced by Lender in accordance with this Agreement or the other Loan Documents for insurance premiums, taxes, assessments, or for preservation or protection of the collateral covered by the Loan Documents (including all legal costs
Providence Square 13 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
associated therewith); fourth, to the payment of accrued unpaid interest on the Note, and the balance, if any, shall be applied to the reduction of the outstanding principal balance of the Note (subject to the terms hereof), or in such other order or proportion of said obligations as Lender may determine. Interest due hereunder shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year (composed of twelve 30-day months) except the payment due under Section 2.3(a) above which shall be calculated on the actual number of days in the Interim Interest Period. All payments on the Loan shall be made by automated clearing house (ACH) auto-debit funds transfer initiated by Lender and/or its agents.
2.5 Late Payment Charge. If any principal, interest or any other sums due under the Loan Documents is not received by Lender by the later of (a) the Payment Date or (b) the date specified by applicable Law as the last date that must pass before Lender may legally charge a Late Charge, Borrower shall pay to Lender a Late Charge to defray the expense incurred by Lender in handling and processing such delinquent payment and to compensate Lender for the loss of the use of such delinquent payment. The Late Charge shall be due and payable on the next Payment Date thereafter, whether or not Lender shall have billed Borrower for such charges, or upon demand if there shall be no succeeding Payment Date thereafter. Any such amount shall be secured by the Security Instrument and the other Loan Documents. Borrower acknowledges that the Late Charge is a fair and reasonable estimate, considering all of the circumstances existing on the date of execution of this Agreement, of the cost the Lender will incur by reason of such late payment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event the Loan is not paid in full on the Maturity Date, a Late Charge will not be assessed on the principal balance of the Loan (provided, however, the foregoing shall in no event be construed to limit any of Lender’s rights or remedies available to it in such event, including, but not limited to assessment and collection of interest at the Default Rate).
2.6 Prepayment. Borrower shall not have the right to prepay all or any part of the Loan at any time except as expressly provided for herein. Borrower shall have the right to prepay, in full but not in part, the Loan, provided that, as conditions precedent, Borrower: (i) gives Lender not less than thirty (30) days revocable prior Notice of Borrower’s intention to prepay the Loan; (ii) pays to Lender the Prepayment Premium, if any, then due and payable to Lender; and (iii) pays to Lender all other amounts then due under the Loan Documents. If all or any portion of the Prepayment Premium calculation in this Section 2.6 and in the definition of Prepayment Premium shall be amended, altered, severed, voided or determined to be not enforceable by any court or other governmental entity, or if Borrower brings an action or raises as a defense to a suit brought by Lender that the Prepayment Premium is void and/or unenforceable, the entire voluntary prepayment privilege set forth in this Section 2.6 shall be deemed null and void, and of no further force and effect. Commencing on the Payment Date that is twelve (12) months prior to the Maturity Date, provided no Event of Default then exists or the Loan has not been accelerated, Borrower may prepay the full outstanding principal balance of the Loan, at Par. If the prepayment of the Loan occurs on a date other than the Maturity Date, interest shall be calculated based upon the actual days including the day of prepayment.
2.7 Savings Clause; Severability. Notwithstanding anything in any of the Loan Documents to the contrary, if at any time the Interest Rate, together with all fees, charges, and other amounts that are treated as interest on the Loan under applicable Law (collectively the “Charges”), shall exceed the maximum lawful rate that may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by Lender in accordance with applicable Law, the Interest Rate, together with all Charges, shall be limited to the maximum lawful rate and, to the extent lawful, the interest and Charges that would
Providence Square 14 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
have been payable but were not payable as a result of the operation of this Section 2.7 shall be cumulated and the interest and Charges payable to Lender in respect of other periods shall be increased (but not above the maximum lawful rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon to the date of repayment, shall have been received by Lender. Any amount collected by Lender in excess of that which can be spread over the life of the Loan in accordance with this Section 2.7 shall be promptly refunded to Borrower and shall be deemed by the parties to never have been charged at all.

Such proceedings shall suspend the collection of such contested Impositions to the extent permitted by applicable Law, provided however, any such contest, however, shall not relieve Borrower of its obligation to pay all Impositions in full, and unless Borrower has furnished such security as may be required in connection with the contest, Lender may require Borrower to post a bond or other collateral satisfactory to Lender (and acceptable to the title company insuring the Security Instrument to insure over any Lien described in this Section 4.3(c)) as a result of Borrower’s act.

Any such agreement is hereby assigned to Lender and the rights of the manager and leasing agent thereunder shall be subordinated to the Lien of the Security Instrument and such manager and leasing agent shall consent to such subordination and assignment upon request from Lender. If any change of management or termination or modification of any such agreement occurs without Lender’s prior written approval (which will not be unreasonably withheld), it shall constitute an Event of Default.

Providence Square 26 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3

4.12 Leases and Possessory Estates.
(a) Leasing. Borrower shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to lease and keep all of the Improvements fully leased. Any and all such Leases must comply with the provisions hereof. Upon Lender’s request, Borrower shall deliver to Lender a true, complete and correct copy of all Leases. After the Closing Date, Borrower shall not amend, modify, permit an assignment or sublease, supplement, terminate, cancel or rescind any Lease after the execution thereof without the prior written consent of Lender, except such consent shall not be required for such actions as to Leases not with Major Tenants that are taken in accordance with normal and prudent property management practices. Additionally, Borrower shall not, without the prior written consent of Lender, (i) request or consent to the subordination of any Lease to any Lien subordinate to the Security Instrument; or (ii) exercise any right to relocate any tenant outside the Property pursuant to any right set forth in a Lease.
Providence Square 27 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
(b) Leases. Borrower shall only execute Leases on the form of tenant lease approved by Lender (the “Commercial Form Lease”) as part of the Closing, subject to commercially reasonable negotiations with any such Tenant. Borrower shall not, without the prior written consent of Lender, in Lender’s sole reasonable discretion, materially amend, modify or alter the Commercial Form Lease. Any change to the Commercial Form Lease affecting the tenant’s insurance, the tenant’s obligation to reimburse the landlord for the cost of taxes, insurance or operating expenses, the use of insurance or condemnation proceeds, granting any right with respect to the purchase of any part of the Property (including without limitation, any right of first offer or refusal or purchase option), or reducing Lender’s rights shall be deemed to be “material” and may not be made without Lender’s consent. If any new Lease is on a form that includes automatic subordination and attornment language consistent with the Commercial Form Lease, then Lender shall not require a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement. If Borrower requests Lender to review and/or execute any non-disturbance and attornment agreements with future tenants of the Property (as applicable), Lender will only enter into such agreements which are on Lender’s then-current standard form of such agreement or form approved by Lender in connection with any commercial lease now or hereafter affecting the whole or any part of the Property. Any other form or changes to Lender’s then-current standard form submitted by Borrower or tenant are subject to Lender’s review, in Lender’s sole discretion, and shall be subject to payment by Borrower of Lender’s reasonable legal fees (internal or external counsel) for such review. All Leases must (i) be at competitive market rents and (ii) contain a written provision acceptable to Lender whereby all rights of the tenant under the Lease are subordinated to the Liens granted in the Loan Documents or may be made superior to the lien of the Security Instrument at Lender’s option. Borrower shall not enter into or modify any Major Tenant Lease without obtaining Lender’s prior written consent.
(c) Performance of Leases. Borrower shall (i) duly and punctually perform and comply with any and all covenants and agreements which are binding on the landlord under any Lease; (ii) use commercially reasonable efforts to enforce, short of termination, the performance by each tenant under its respective Lease of all of said tenant’s obligations thereunder; (iii) appear and provide appropriate defense, with reasonable diligence, in any action or proceeding in any way connected with any Lease; and (iv) deliver to Lender such further information, and execute and deliver to Lender such further assurances, assignments, and confirmations of Lender’s rights under the Loan Documents with respect to the Leases and Rents as Lender may reasonably request. Without Lender’s prior written consent, Borrower shall not (A) do or knowingly permit to be done anything to impair the value of the Leases in the aggregate; (B) except for security or similar deposits, collect any Rents or other payments due under any of the Leases more than one (1) month in advance of the time when the same becomes due under the terms of any Lease; (C) discount any future Rents or other payments due under any of the Leases; or (D) assign or grant a security interest in or to any of the Leases or any Rents due thereunder, other than in accordance with the terms, provisions, or obligations contained in the Loan Documents. Borrower shall notify Lender in writing of any monetary default or any default beyond applicable notice and cure periods under any Lease with a Major Tenant. Lender shall have the right, but not the obligation, at its sole option, upon the occurrence of any default by Borrower under any Lease, to pay any sum required or perform any obligation required to cure such default and Borrower shall repay on demand any and all such amounts incurred by Lender, including interest on such amount at the Default Rate.
(d) Estoppel Certificates. Borrower shall use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver to Lender, upon request, tenant estoppel certificates from each lessee at the Property under
Providence Square 28 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
a Lease in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Lender (provided, however, that Borrower shall not be required to deliver such certificates more frequently than one time in any calendar year unless a default then exists under the Loan Documents).
(e) Termination Fees. Borrower shall deposit all Termination Fees from Major Tenants and those in excess of Five Hundred Thousand and NO/100 Dollars ($500,000.00) (whether or not Lender’s consent to such termination is required) into a cash collateral account controlled by Lender and use such Termination Fees to retrofit or build out the space for a new tenant(s) under terms and conditions reasonably satisfactory to Lender. During the existence of an Event of Default under the Loan Documents, all Termination Fees shall be delivered to Lender and Lender may apply the Termination Fees, including any Termination Fees held in a cash collateral account, in such order and manner of application as Lender may elect (notwithstanding the fact that the amount owing thereon may not then be due and payable or that the Indebtedness may otherwise be adequately secured).
(f) Miscellaneous Licenses, Leases and other Possessory Estates. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Borrower shall not grant any Person any possessory interest wherein such Person shall have the right to attach to any exterior portion of the Improvements or on any portion of the Real Property telecommunication, renewable energy or similar equipment, including, but not limited to: satellite dishes, antennas, cable routers, solar panels, wind turbines, etc. unless such equipment is solely providing service to the Property.
(g) Deemed Consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Lender fails to respond to a request to approve a new Lease or any Leasing Action (as defined below) with respect to a Lease that requires Lender’s approval within five (5) Business Days after the final (negotiated) version of the Lease (including all exhibits), a current rent roll for the Property, the most current quarterly operating statement for the Property and all tenant credit information, if required by the Lease, has been delivered and received by Lender, clearly marked “LEASE REVIEW – TIME SENSITIVE RESPONSE REQUIRED”, Borrower shall send a second notice by way of certified mail or overnight courier clearly marked in the same fashion. If after five (5) Business Days from receipt of the second notice, Lender has not responded, the new Lease or the Leasing Action shall be deemed approved by Lender. If all of the required information was not provided initially or additional information is required by Lender to render a decision on the Lease, the time to respond will commence upon Lender’s receipt of all required information. As used herein, “Leasing Action” shall mean the amendment, modification, assignment or sublease, supplement, termination, cancelation or rescinding of an existing Lease.
4.13 Miscellaneous Property Agreements. Borrower shall duly and punctually perform and comply with any and all covenants and agreements which are binding on the Borrower under any deed, sublease, or other form of conveyance, or any other agreement pursuant to which Borrower grants or is granted a possessory interest in the Property.
Borrower hereby unconditionally covenants and agrees with Lender, until the Indebtedness has been paid in full and the Obligations have been paid, fully performed and discharged, as follows:
Providence Square 29 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
5.1 Use Violations. Borrower will not use, maintain, operate or occupy, or allow the use, maintenance, operation or occupancy of, the Property in any manner which (a) violates any Laws; (b) may be dangerous, unless safeguarded as required by Law and/or appropriate insurance; (c) constitutes a public or private nuisance; or (d) makes void, voidable or cancellable, or increases the premium of, any insurance then in force with respect thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, matters relating to the Detention Pond Items violate Law as of the Closing Date but shall be remediated by Borrower as soon as is reasonably practicable.
5.2 Waste. Borrower will not commit or permit any physical waste or impairment of the Property, ordinary wear and tear excepted.
5.3 No Disposition. Except for Permitted Dispositions, neither Borrower nor any legal or beneficial owner of Borrower will make a Disposition without obtaining Lender’s prior written consent to the Disposition.
5.4 Change of Name or Address. Borrower shall not change its name, identity, principal places of business or its jurisdiction of organization without obtaining Lender’s prior written consent to such change. Borrower shall bear all costs incurred by Lender in connection with any such change including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees.
5.5 ERISA. Assuming Lender does not fund the Loan (initially or through participation, assignment, transfer or securitization) with the assets of any employee benefit plan unless it relies on an available prohibited transaction exemption, all of the conditions of which are satisfied, Borrower shall not engage in any transaction which would cause any obligation, or action taken or to be taken, hereunder (or the exercise by Lender of any of its rights under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents) to be a non-exempt (under a statutory or administrative class exemption) prohibited transaction under ERISA or result in a violation of a state statute regulating governmental plans.
5.6 Zoning. Borrower will not (a) initiate, support or acquiesce in any zoning reclassification of the Property, seek any variance under existing zoning ordinances applicable to the Property or use or permit the use of the Property in a manner which would result in such use becoming a non-conforming use under applicable zoning ordinances; (b) modify, amend or supplement any of the Permitted Encumbrances; (c) impose any restrictive covenants or encumbrances upon the Property, or execute or file any subdivision plat affecting the Property, or consent to the annexation of the Property to any municipality; (d) permit or suffer the Property to be used by the public or any Person in such manner as would make possible a colorable claim of adverse usage or possession or of any implied dedication or easement; (e) take any actions which results in the Property no longer being separately assessed for real property tax purposes as a separate tax lot or lots; (f) assign, transfer or in any manner change any certificates, licenses, authorizations, registrations, permits and/or approvals without first receiving the written consent of Lender; or (g) consent to the formation of any owner/tenant association or road improvement district affecting the Property.
5.7 Mineral Rights. Borrower agrees that the making of any oil, gas or mineral lease, or the sale or conveyance of any mineral interest or right to explore for minerals under, through or upon the Property, would impair the value of the Property and Borrower will not permit any drilling
Providence Square 30 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
or exploration for or extraction, removal or production of any minerals from the surface or the sub-surface of the Real Property regardless of the depth thereof or the method of mining or extraction thereof. Borrower shall have no right, power or authority to lease the Property, or any part thereof, for oil, gas or other mineral purposes, or to grant, assign or convey any mineral interest of any nature, or the right to explore for oil, gas and other minerals, without first obtaining Lender’s express written permission therefor. Whether or not Lender shall consent to such Lease or grant of mineral rights, Lender shall receive the entire consideration to be paid for any such Lease or grant of mineral rights, with the same to be applied to the Loan notwithstanding the fact that the amount owing thereon may not then be due and payable or that the Loan is otherwise adequately secured. The acceptance of such consideration shall in no way impair the Lien of the Security Instrument on the Property or cure any existing Event of Default.
5.8 Alteration, Removal, Building and Change in Use of Property. Borrower will not permit the following without the prior written consent of Lender: (a) any structural alteration of, or addition to, the Improvements now or hereafter situated upon the Real Property, or the addition of any new buildings or other structure(s) thereto, other than (i) the erection or removal of non-load bearing interior walls or alterations required by the terms of Leases which have been approved by Lender or which are not subject to Lender’s review, comment and approval, or (ii) making other immaterial alterations or improvements to the Property consistent with the ownership and operation relating to the Existing Use and otherwise as approved in writing by Lender; (b) the removal, transfer, sale or lease of the Fixtures and Security Property, except that the renewal, replacement or substitution of broken, obsolete or worn out Fixtures and Security Property may be made in the normal course of business as long as replacement or substituted items are of like or better quality, value and utility as the removed items were in their original condition; (c) building or constructing upon any portion of the Property, any building, structure or improvement of any kind whatsoever, the building or construction of which has not been previously approved by Lender in writing, which approval shall be at the discretion of Lender; and (d) the use of any of the Improvements now or hereafter situated on the Real Property for any purpose other than the Existing Use and related facilities.
5.9 Liens, Charges and Encumbrances. Borrower will not permit to be created or to exist in respect of the Property or any part thereof any Lien on parity with, superior to or inferior to any of the Liens of the Loan Documents, except for the Permitted Encumbrances. Upon becoming aware of the creation of any Lien on the Property, including without limitation a Lien resulting from or arising out of a breach of a Permitted Encumbrance, Borrower shall promptly (but not less than ten days after written notice of such Lien is sent to Borrower by Lender) pay or otherwise discharge all lawful claims and demands of mechanics, materialmen, laborers, realtors, brokers and others which if unpaid, might result in, or permit the creation of, a Lien, charge or encumbrance upon the Property or any part thereof, or on the Rents, arising therefrom. Notwithstanding the foregoing and provided no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing (unless otherwise approved by Lender), Borrower may contest, at no expense to Lender, by appropriate legal proceedings promptly initiated and conducted with due diligence, in accordance with all applicable statutes, laws, and ordinances, mechanics’, materialmen’s and other such liens filed against the Property in accordance with the terms hereof. Borrower shall give Notice to Lender of its intent to bring such action and, unless Borrower has furnished (or caused to be furnished) such security as may be required in the proceeding, Lender may, in Lender’s discretion, require Borrower to either: (i) post a bond or other
Providence Square 31 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
collateral satisfactory to Lender (and acceptable to the title company insuring the Security Instrument to insure over any Lien described in this Section 5.9); or (ii) provide Lender with a cash deposit in an amount necessary to pay any and all costs associated with having the Lien released, which deposit may be used by Lender to satisfy any Lien described in this Section 5.9 (in the event Borrower is unsuccessful contesting such Lien) within a period of ten days after written notice is sent to Borrower requiring the posting of the bond or other collateral. Upon a final, non-appealable adverse determination of such Lien, Borrower shall have a period of ten Business Days to pay all amounts secured by such Lien and provide Lender with evidence such Lien has been released.
5.10 Distributions. Borrower will not make any distributions with respect to any class of its equity or ownership interest; provided, however, that Borrower may make distributions so long as: (i) there exists no monetary Event of Default under the Loan Documents and Borrower has not received notice of a monetary default under the Loan Documents from Lender that Borrower has not cured to Lender’s satisfaction, (ii) Borrower shall, after giving effect to any such distribution, continue to be in compliance with the terms and conditions of the Loan Documents, including without limitation Section 4.11 hereof, and (iii) by making such distribution, Borrower shall be deemed to have remade the representation in Section 3.13 of this Agreement to be effective after giving effect to such distribution.
5.11 Controlled Substances.

To the extent Borrower should nonetheless become aware of any Drug-Related Activities occurring at the Property, Borrower shall immediately provide notice of such information to Lender. Nothing contained herein or in section 5.11(b) shall preclude Borrower or any tenant or occupant of the Property from engaging in the sale creation, production, manufacture, storage, distribution, possession or handling of any Controlled Substances in accordance with all applicable federal laws and State laws.
(b) Payments to Lender. Borrower shall not make any payments to Lender from funds derived from Drug-Related Activities.
(c) Supersedes Local Law. The provisions of this Section 5.11 are intended and shall apply notwithstanding any state or local law permitting the Controlled Substances Uses or Drug-Related Activities.

All property policies shall (i) be with insurers licensed to do business in the State and who have and maintain a rating of at least A:X or better from AM Best’s Insurance Guide; provided, however, if insurance coverage is provided and maintained by a blanket policy, so long as the first $50,000,000 of loss is insured with a company or companies with a rating of at least A-:X, then Borrower shall have met this requirement; (ii) contain the complete address of the Property (or a complete legal description); (iii) be for a term of at least one (1) year; (iv) contain deductibles no greater than $25,000 for Special Form or All Risk property insurance coverage or as otherwise required by Lender; and (v) be subject to the approval of Lender as to insurance companies, amounts, content, forms of policies, method by which premiums are paid and expiration dates. Borrower shall as of the date hereof deliver to Lender evidence that said insurance policies have been paid current as of the date hereof and evidence of insurance satisfactory to Lender shall be provided in the form of declaration pages and/or policy endorsements, statements/schedules of values or other proof of insurance and if statements of value are required, for non-subject property only zip codes in a five (5) mile radius of the Property will be provided and not property addresses (“Evidence of Insurance”). Borrower shall renew all such insurance and deliver to Lender the Evidence of Insurance for such renewals (other than for the Required Environmental Insurance) at least thirty (30) days before any such insurance shall expire. Without limiting the required endorsements to insurance policies, Borrower further agrees that all such policies shall provide that proceeds thereunder shall be payable directly to Lender, its successors and assigns, pursuant and subject to a Non-Contributory Standard Lender Clause and a Lender’s Loss Payable Endorsement or an equivalent if approved by Lender, or otherwise made a part of such policy in favor of Lender, and that Lender, its successors and assigns, shall be named as an additional insured under all liability insurance policies. Borrower further agrees that all such insurance policies: (A) shall provide for at least thirty (30) days’ prior Notice to Lender prior to any cancellation or termination thereof (except that only ten (10) days’ prior Notice shall be required for cancellation due to the non-payment of premiums); and (B) shall contain an endorsement or agreement by the insurer that any loss shall be payable to Lender in accordance with the terms of such policy notwithstanding any act or negligence of Borrower which might otherwise result in forfeiture of such insurance.
(c) Effect. The delivery to Lender of the Evidence of Insurance, as provided above shall constitute an assignment of all proceeds payable under such insurance policies by Borrower to Lender as further security for the Loan. In the event of foreclosure of the Security Instrument, or other transfer of title to the Property in extinguishment in whole or in part of the Indebtedness, all right, title and interest of Borrower in and to all proceeds payable under such policies then in force concerning the Property shall thereupon vest in the purchaser at such foreclosure, or in Lender or other Transferee in the event of such other transfer of title. Approval

4813-0380-2520, v. 3
of any insurance by Lender shall not be a representation of the solvency of any insurer or the sufficiency of any amount of insurance.
(d) Remedial Rights. In the event Borrower fails to provide, maintain, keep in force or deliver and furnish to Lender the Evidence of Insurance required by this Agreement or evidence of their renewal as required herein, Lender may, but shall not be obligated to, procure such insurance and Borrower shall pay all amounts advanced by Lender, together with interest thereon at the Default Rate from and after the date advanced by Lender until actually repaid by Borrower, promptly upon demand by Lender. Any amounts so advanced by Lender, together with interest thereon, shall be secured by the Security Instrument and by all of the other Loan Documents securing all or any part of the Indebtedness. Lender shall not be responsible for nor incur any liability for the insolvency of the insurer or other failure of the insurer to perform, even though Lender has caused the insurance to be placed with the insurer after failure of Borrower to furnish such insurance.
(e) Required Environmental Insurance. At Borrower’s sole cost and expense, Borrower shall maintain in full force and effect on the Property an environmental insurance policy (the “Required Environmental Insurance”) that satisfies the following conditions:
(i) The initial term of the policy will be for ten (10) years, however, Borrower shall cause the policy to renew during the term of the Loan prior to its expiration (or add the Property to a blanket insurance policy acceptable to Lender prior to its expiration so as to cause the Required Environmental Insurance to remain in full force and effect) or such failure shall constitute an Event of Default;
(ii) The policy shall provide for an automatic extended reporting period such that claims accruing during the term of the Loan may be made under the Required Environmental Insurance until three (3) years after the earlier of (1) the date on which Borrower paid and satisfied all of the Obligations, in full, in the ordinary course or (ii) the closing date of a transfer permitted under this Agreement (the “Automatic Extended Reporting Period”) with Lender named as an additional insured and, as applicable, as mortgagee, until the expiration of such three (3) year period; and
(iii) Borrower represents and warrants that, to Borrower’s Knowledge, Borrower has disclosed any and all environmental claims to the insurance company carrying the Required Environmental Insurance and has provided a copy of all environmental reports to such company. Borrower shall disclose any environmental claim arising during the term of the Loan to such company.
6.2 Borrower’s Casualty Obligations.
(a) General Requirements. In the event of any damage to or loss or destruction of the Property (“Casualty”), Borrower shall: (i) promptly notify Lender of such event (except that if the Casualty is $250,000.00 or less, Borrower shall not be required to notify Lender of such Casualty) and take such steps as shall be necessary to preserve any undamaged portion of the Property, (ii) promptly pay all required insurance deductibles, and (iii) subject to the terms hereof, promptly commence and diligently pursue to completion (taking into account the time necessary to adjust the loss, obtain permits and enter into restoration contracts), the restoration, replacement
Providence Square 35 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
and rebuilding of the Property, as nearly as possible to their value, condition and character immediately prior to the Casualty (collectively, the “Restoration”); provided, however, in the event Lender applies the insurance proceeds to the Indebtedness, pursuant to Section 6.3, Borrower shall have no obligation to commence the Restoration. The Restoration shall be completed in a good and workmanlike manner, in accordance with all applicable Laws, and with other provisions for the preservation of the security hereunder reasonably established by Lender, including, the Restoration Conditions (as defined below).
(b) Settlement. Borrower may settle and adjust all insurance claims up to Five Hundred Thousand and NO/00 Dollars ($500,000.00) directly with the insurance company without the prior consent of Lender and the net proceeds will be disbursed to Borrower for the Restoration subject to the following: (i) no Event of Default then exists, (ii) Borrower uses the proceeds of any claim for the Restoration, (iii) local building and zoning Laws allow the Property to be rebuilt to its condition prior to the Casualty and for the Existing Use, and (iv) the claim is settled on or before the date that is one hundred twenty days (120) after the date of any such Casualty. Any such proceeds that are not promptly utilized for Restoration shall be applied against the Indebtedness, in the order and manner determined by Lender (provided that to the extent that any Indebtedness shall remain outstanding after such application, such unpaid Indebtedness shall continue in full force and effect and Borrower shall not be excused in the payment thereof).
6.3 Lender’s Rights.
(a) Insured Casualty. In the event of any Casualty which is covered, in whole or in part, by insurance described in Section 6.1 or any other insurance maintained by Borrower with respect to the Property, then:
(i) Except as expressly provided in Section 6.2(b), Lender shall have the right to, but shall not be obligated to, make proof of loss if not made promptly by Borrower, and is hereby authorized and empowered by Borrower to settle, adjust or compromise any claims for damage, loss or destruction thereunder. Unless a default then exists under the Loan Documents, Lender shall consult with Borrower (but shall not be required to obtain Borrower’s consent) regarding any such settlement, adjustment or compromise;
(ii) Each insurance company concerned is hereby authorized and directed to make payment therefor directly to Lender; and
(iii) Borrower or Lender, as the case may be, shall apply the insurance proceeds, first, to reimburse Lender for all costs and expenses, including, without limitation, adjustors’ and attorneys’ fees and disbursements, incurred in connection with the collection of such proceeds, and, second, at Lender’s option, (A) in payment of all or any part of the Indebtedness, at Par (so long as no Event of Default then exists) in the order and manner determined by Lender (provided that to the extent that any Indebtedness shall remain outstanding after such application, such unpaid Indebtedness shall continue in full force and effect and Borrower shall not be excused in the payment thereof); (B) to the cure of any default hereunder; or (C) to the Restoration, in whole or in part, of the portion of the Property so damaged, lost or destroyed, provided, that, in the opinion and discretion of Lender, either: (1) the insurance proceeds so collected are sufficient to cover the cost of the Restoration or
Providence Square 36 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
repair of the damage or destruction with respect to which such proceeds were paid; or (2) the insurance proceeds so collected are not sufficient alone to cover the cost of the Restoration or repair but are sufficient therefor when taken together with funds provided and made available, and deposited into cash collateral account controlled by Lender, by Borrower from other sources. In the event Lender shall make such insurance proceeds available to Borrower, subject to the Restoration Conditions, for the purpose of effecting such Restoration, Lender shall not be obligated to see to the proper application of such insurance proceeds nor shall the amount of funds so released or used be deemed to be payment of or on account of the Loan. Lender shall have sole and exclusive dominion and control over such proceeds.
(iv) If Lender elects to apply the insurance proceeds to the Indebtedness and such proceeds are insufficient to pay the Indebtedness in full and subject to Borrower’s right to pay the remainder of the Indebtedness at Par pursuant to Section 6.2, Lender may declare the remaining unpaid Indebtedness to be immediately due and payable in full, at Par; provided, however, if (A) no Event of Default then exists under the Loan or the Loan Documents, (B) Borrower delivers to Lender Notice of such intent to prepay the Loan within five (5) days following the date of Lender’s application of the casualty proceeds to the Indebtedness, and (C) any failure to satisfy the Lender’s standard restoration conditions with respect to the casualty is not the result of an act or omission of Borrower, Lender shall refrain from accelerating the Loan for a period of ninety (90) days from Lender’s receipt of such Notice. Any costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) related to Lender’s determination of whether or not to waive such requirement shall be paid by Borrower upon demand.
(b) Release of Proceeds. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and provided no default then exists under the Loan Documents (provided Borrower shall have the right to cure such default within any applicable cure period), in the event of loss or damage to the Property by fire, earthquake, other catastrophe or event for which insurance has been maintained by Borrower, and the amount of such loss or damage does not exceed fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding principal balance of the Loan, Lender hereby agrees to allow the proceeds of insurance to be used for the Restoration and to release such insurance proceeds to Borrower as the Restoration progresses, subject to the following conditions (collectively, the “Restoration Conditions”):
(i) on a proforma basis, the Improvements shall be at least eighty percent (80%) leased within twelve (12) months after the estimated completion of the Restoration;
(ii) Lender shall be satisfied that the Restoration is expected to be completed in accordance with the terms hereof no later than ninety (90) days prior to the Maturity Date;
(iii) the plans and specifications for the Restoration shall have been approved in writing by Lender in advance;
(iv) at all times during the Restoration, Borrower has deposited with Lender funds which, when added to the insurance proceeds received by Lender, are sufficient to complete the Restoration in accordance with the approved plans and specifications, and
Providence Square 37 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
all applicable building codes, zoning ordinances, regulations and Laws, and the funds on deposit with Lender are sufficient to complete the Restoration of the Property as certified to Lender by Lender’s inspecting architect/engineer;
(v) Borrower provides suitable completion, payment and performance bonds, and builders’ all risk insurance in such amounts, with such deductibles and upon such other terms and conditions as are acceptable to Lender, together with all necessary licenses and permits for such Restoration in form and amount acceptable to Lender;
(vi) Lender shall have the option, upon the completion of the Restoration of the Property, to apply any surplus insurance proceeds remaining after the completion of the Restoration to the reduction, at Par, of the outstanding principal balance of the Note, notwithstanding the fact that the amount owing thereon may not then be due and payable or that said Loan is otherwise adequately secured;
(vii) the insurance proceeds and any other funds held by Lender shall be disbursed by Lender no more often than once per month and in amounts of not less than $50,000 each, except the final disbursement may be in an amount less than $50,000;
(viii) Lender’s obligation to make any such disbursement shall be conditioned upon Lender’s receipt of written certification from Lender’s inspecting architect/engineer (whose fees shall be reimbursed to Lender by Borrower) that all construction and work for which such disbursement is requested has been completed in accordance with the approved plans and specifications and in accordance with all applicable building codes, zoning ordinances and all other Laws and, further, that Borrower has deposited with Lender sufficient funds to complete such Restoration; and
(ix) Lender shall be entitled to require and to impose such other conditions to the release of such funds as would be customarily required and imposed by institutional mortgage lenders or that are otherwise commercially reasonable.
Borrower’s failure to timely commence Restoration and diligently pursue the completion thereof, subject to the Restoration Conditions, will constitute an Event of Default under the Loan Documents. Furthermore, Borrower’s failure to use the insurance proceeds received directly from the insurance company to rebuild and restore shall trigger recourse liability pursuant to Section 10.1(c) of this Agreement.
(a) Borrower’s Obligations; Proceedings. Borrower covenants and agrees to provide Lender with immediate Notice of any actual or threatened commencement of any proceedings under eminent domain, including, but not limited to any taking by eminent domain, recovery for inverse condemnation or by deed in lieu thereof, whether permanent or temporary, of all or any part of the Property including any easement or any appurtenance thereto, including any change in grade of any right of way, street, or public place (collectively, a “Taking”) and to deliver to Lender copies of any and all papers served in connection with any Taking. Lender may participate in any such proceedings, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense, and Borrower from time to time will
Providence Square 38 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
execute and deliver to Lender all instruments requested by Lender or as may be required to permit such participation. Borrower shall, at its expense, diligently prosecute any such proceedings and shall consult and cooperate with Lender, its attorneys and agents, in the carrying on and defense of any such proceedings. No settlement of any such proceeding shall be made by Borrower without Lender’s prior written consent.
(b) Lender’s Rights to Awards. All Taking proceeds, including awards or proceeds of sale in lieu of condemnation, and all judgments, decrees and awards for injury or damage to the Property (an “Award” or “Awards”) are hereby assigned and shall be paid to Lender. Borrower shall execute and deliver to Lender, at any time, upon request, free, clear and discharged of any encumbrance of any kind whatsoever, any further assignments and/or other instruments deemed necessary by Lender for the purpose of validly and sufficiently assigning Awards made to Lender (including the assignment of any Award from the United States government at any time after the allowance of the claim therefor, the ascertainment of the amount thereof and the issuance of the warrant for payment thereof). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if no Event of Default then exists, in the event any Awards are equal to or less than $500,000.00, Borrower shall be entitled to receive the proceeds for Restoration, or to the extent such proceeds are not promptly utilized for Restoration, for application against the Indebtedness, at Par, in the order and manner determined by Lender (provided that to the extent that any Indebtedness shall remain outstanding after such application, such unpaid Indebtedness shall continue in full force and effect and Borrower shall not be excused in the payment thereof).
(c) Application of Awards. Lender shall have the right to apply any Awards as follows: first, to reimburse Lender for all costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in connection with such Taking, and, second, at Lender’s option, (i) in payment of all or any part of the Indebtedness, at Par (so long as no Event of Default then exists), in the order and manner determined by Lender (provided that to the extent that any Indebtedness shall remain outstanding after such application, such unpaid Indebtedness shall continue in full force and effect and Borrower shall not be excused in the payment thereof); (ii) to the cure of any default hereunder; or (iii) to the Restoration, in whole or in part, of the portion of the Property remaining after the Taking; provided, however, Lender shall hold said Awards without any allowance of interest, and make the same available to restore, replace and rebuild the Property, as nearly as possible to its value, condition and character immediately prior to the Taking if such Taking does not result in the following, as determined by Lender, in Lender’s discretion: (A) a Material Adverse Change, (B) a violation of any Laws (including any zoning ordinances), or (C) a default under any Lease. In the event that Lender elects to make the Awards available to reimburse Borrower for the cost of the Restoration of the Improvements on the Real Property, such proceeds shall be made available in the manner and under the same conditions as required under Section 6.3(b). In the event Lender applies such Awards to the reduction of the outstanding Loan or if any surplus remains out of the Award after payment of such cost of Restoration, such amounts shall be applied on account of the Loan at Par, so long as no Event of Default then exists (notwithstanding the fact that the amount owing thereon may not then be due and payable or that the Loan may otherwise be adequately secured). If the Taking results in a Material Adverse Change, as determined by Lender, and Lender elects to apply the Awards to the Indebtedness and such proceeds are insufficient to pay the Indebtedness in full and subject to Borrower’s right to pay the remainder of
Providence Square 39 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
the Indebtedness at Par pursuant to Section 6.3(a)(iv), Lender may declare the remaining unpaid Indebtedness to be immediately due and payable in full, at Par.
Borrower’s failure to timely commence Restoration following a Taking and diligently pursue the completion thereof, subject to the terms hereof, will constitute an Event of Default under the Loan Documents. Furthermore, Borrower’s failure to use the Award received directly from the condemning authority to rebuild and restore or pay down the indebtedness pursuant to Section 6.4(b) above shall trigger recourse liability pursuant to Section 10.1(c) of this Agreement.
TRANSFERS AND DISPOSITIONS
7.1 Transfers and Dispositions. Except for the Permitted Dispositions described in Sections 7.2, it shall be an Event of Default if, without Lender’s prior written consent (which consent may be given or withheld for any or for no reason subject to such conditions as Lender may establish, in Lender’s discretion) a Disposition shall occur (other than a Permitted Disposition). For the purposes of the foregoing, each of the following shall be deemed a “Disposition”:

7.2 Permitted Dispositions. The following transfers shall be “Permitted Dispositions”:
(a) Third Party Permitted Transfer. Borrower shall have a one-time right to transfer the Property upon not less than thirty (30) days advance written notice (subject to the limitations provided herein), to another party or parties (each a “Transferee”), without a change in the Interest Rate, amortization or other terms (except that Section 7.2(a) of this Agreement shall not apply to the Transferee), provided the Transferee assumes in writing all of the obligations of the Loan Documents first arising after the Transfer and is acceptable to Lender, in its sole and absolute discretion subject to the following conditions: (i) the Transferee shall be a Qualified Transferee or a Qualified Institutional Investor (as defined below); (ii) Borrower shall pay Lender at the time of transfer a cash assumption fee equal to one percent (1.00%) of the outstanding principal balance of the Loan and all of Lender’s actual costs and expenses incurred in connection with the assumption (including legal costs); (iii) Lender’s receipt and approval of a title endorsement; (iv) Lender’s approval of any replacement management and leasing companies (including their respective engagement agreements); (v) satisfaction of all of the Transfer Conditions; (vi) Intentionally Omitted; and (vii) at the time of transfer, the following conditions shall be satisfied: (x) the loan-to-purchase shall not exceed 60% (the “Loan-to-Purchase Threshold”) and (y) a debt service coverage ratio of at least 2.00x (the “Debt Service Coverage Threshold”), based upon the Interest Rate and an interest-only schedule (any leases with tenants not in occupancy or more than 30 days delinquent or with less than 12 months of term left (unless such tenant has given notice of its intent to renew its lease) shall not be included in these calculations). The Loan-to-Purchase Threshold and Debt Service Coverage Threshold shall be collectively defined as the “Loan Assumption Thresholds,” which satisfaction shall be reasonably determined by Lender based upon Lender’s then current underwriting methodology for similar properties, including, but not limited to both historical operating reviews and performance and forward-looking proforma underwriting, property condition, operating history, current occupancy, net operating income, debt service

Borrower and/or Transferee shall have the right, in the event the Loan Assumption Thresholds are not satisfied, to make a partial prepayment of the Loan to satisfy the Loan Assumption Thresholds; provided, however, any such partial prepayment permitted in this Section shall be subject to payment of the Prepayment Premium. For the purposes hereof, the term “Qualified Institutional Investor” shall mean an entity that satisfies, or whose Controlling owner satisfies, as reasonably determined by Lender, the following conditions: (1) the proposed Transferee, or its owner, shall be a reputable institutional investor (such as a pension fund, REIT, real estate operating company, insurance company, or other financial institution) or a reputable developer, owner, or manager with adequate qualifications, operating and management experience, and creditworthiness of owning and managing first class, commercial real estate comparable to the Property; (2) the proposed Transferee, or its owner just prior to the transfer, has real estate assets with a current market value of at least $200,000,000 and a net worth of at least $75,000,000; (3) neither the proposed Transferee, nor any principal, partner, member, Controlling Affiliate, parent, or any entity with more than a 20% beneficial ownership interest in the proposed Transferee, is (A) in default of any indebtedness, (B) involved in any loan workout, restructure, foreclosure, or deed in lieu of foreclosure, (C) involved in any litigation, investigations, indictments, or convictions of any civil or criminal activities or there are any outstanding convictions or money judgment(s) which in Lender’s sole and absolute discretion would have a materially adverse impact on the proposed Transferee’s financial condition or ability to repay the Loan; (4) the proposed Transferee shall be domiciled in the United States of America; (5) the proposed Transferee shall be in compliance with any applicable provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or the various sanctions programs administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control; and (6) the proposed Transferee (including its Controlling Affiliates) not having a prior negative borrowing history.

(or any entity which is substituted for RREEF America L.L.C. in accordance with this provision) as manager/investment advisor to Borrower and/or to RREEF Property Trust, Inc., provided that Borrower provides Lender (i) at least fourteen (14) days prior written Notice of the proposed substitution and (ii) a written acknowledgment from the replacement investment advisor that it is serving as investment advisor to Borrower.
(c) Minority Transfers. The transfer of beneficial ownership interests in Borrower shall be permitted from time to time during the term of the Loan without a change in the Loan terms and shall not be subject to a transfer fee so long as (i) at all times, RREEF Property Trust, Inc. shall own (directly or indirectly) at least 51% of the beneficial ownership interests in Borrower and shall maintain ultimate control of Borrower and the right to remove the investment advisor, (ii) any transferee must comply with applicable provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or the various sanctions programs administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control and shall not have a prior negative borrowing history (as a borrower or an advisor), (iii) no Event of Default exists nor any event that with notice or passage of time will become an Event of Default, (iv) Lender has reviewed and approved all of the transfer documents

in its reasonable discretion, and (v) Borrower shall pay all of Lender’s actual costs and expenses in connection with such transfer and assumption, including any processing fees or attorneys’ fees (internal and/or external).
(d) Shares in RREEF Property Trust. Lender shall permit the assignment or transfer of shares in RREEF Property Trust, Inc., without notice to Lender or the payment of any fee, provided that upon completion of such an assignment or transfer, such assignment or transfer (i) does not result in a breach of any provisions of the Loan Documents (including, but not limited to those sections related to ERISA, the Bank Secrecy Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or the various sanctions programs administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, or Section 4.11 of this Agreement) and (ii) does not result (either singularly or in the aggregate with prior assignments or transfers) in any Person as to which Lender has not undertaken its normal credit and/or regulatory review process (with satisfactory results) becoming an owner, directly or indirectly, in twenty percent (20%) or more of Borrower or RREEF Property Trust, Inc..
7.3 Dealing with Transferees. In the event the ownership of the Property, or any part thereof, shall become vested in a Transferee, whether with or without the prior written consent of Lender, Lender may, without notice to Borrower, deal with such Transferee with reference to the Property and the Loan Documents, in the same manner and to the same extent as with Borrower without in any way vitiating or discharging Borrower’s liability hereunder or under any of the Loan Documents. No sale, transfer or conveyance of the Property, no forbearance on the part of Lender and no extension of time given by Lender to Borrower for the payment of the Note shall operate to release, discharge, modify, change or affect the original liability of Borrower, either in whole or in part, unless expressly set forth in writing executed by Lender.
EVENTS OF DEFAULT
8.1 Event of Default. The term “Event of Default,” as used herein and in the other Loan Documents, shall mean the happening or occurrence, at any time and from time to time, of any one or more of the following (and any Event of Default that has occurred shall continue unless and until Lender accepts a cure in accordance with the terms hereof or waives (in writing) such Event of Default in its discretion):
(a) Payments. Borrower shall fail, refuse or neglect to make any payment or deposit required under the Loan Documents when due and payable, whether at the due date thereof stipulated in the Loan Documents including, without limitation, upon the Maturity Date, acceleration or otherwise;
(b) Performance of Obligations. Borrower shall fail, refuse or neglect or cause the failure, refusal or neglect to comply with, perform and discharge fully and timely as and when required any of the Obligations other than a failure or breach otherwise referred to in other subsections of this Section 8.1 and such failure or breach shall either not be curable or, if curable, shall remain uncured for a period of thirty (30) days after the date Lender gives Notice thereof to Borrower; provided, however, that if such failure or breach is curable but requires work to be performed, acts to be done or conditions to be remedied which, by their nature, cannot be performed, done or remedied, as the case may be, within such thirty (30) day period, no Event of Default shall
Providence Square 43 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
be deemed to have occurred if Borrower commences same within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently and continuously prosecutes the same to completion within ninety (90) days after such Notice;
(c) False Representation. Any representation, warranty or statement made by Borrower, Guarantor or others under or pursuant to the Loan Documents or any affidavit or other instrument executed or delivered with respect to the Loan Documents or the Indebtedness, including, but not limited to the Application, is determined by Lender to be false or misleading in any material respect as of the date hereof or when made;

remedies available to Lender at law or in equity, under the terms of the Security Instrument, or any of the following rights, remedies and recourses, either successively or concurrently:

(viii) after notification, Lender may sell, lease or otherwise dispose of the Security Property, or any part thereof, in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at Lender’s offices or elsewhere, for cash, on credit or for future delivery. Borrower shall be liable for all expenses of retaking, holding, preparing for sale or the like and all attorneys’ fees, legal expenses and all other costs and expenses incurred by Lender in connection with the collection of the Indebtedness and the enforcement of Lender’s rights under the Loan Documents. Lender shall apply the proceeds of the sale of the Security Property against the Indebtedness in accordance with the provisions of Section 8.3 of this Agreement.

(xi) Lender may appoint or delegate any one or more Persons as agent to perform any act or acts necessary or incident to any sale held by Lender, including the sending of notices and the conduct of the sale, but in the name and on behalf of Lender; and

The failure to exercise any remedy available to Lender shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any rights or remedies of Lender under the Loan Documents, at law or in equity.
(d) Prepayments after Event of Default. If, after the occurrence of an Event of Default, payment of all or any part of the Indebtedness is tendered by Borrower and accepted by Lender in Lender’s sole and absolute discretion or is otherwise recovered by Lender (including
Providence Square 47 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
through application of any reserve funds), such tender or recovery shall be deemed to be a voluntary prepayment by Borrower in violation of the prohibition against prepayment set forth in Section 2.6 hereof, and Borrower shall pay, as part of the Indebtedness, all of the following: (i) all accrued interest and, if such tender and acceptance is not made on a Payment Date, interest that would have accrued on the Indebtedness to, but not including, the next Payment Date and (ii) an amount equal to the Prepayment Premium.

The proceeds from any sale, lease, or other disposition made pursuant to this Article VIII shall be applied by Lender to the Indebtedness in the following order and priority: (a) to the payment of all expenses of advertising, selling, and conveying the Property or part thereof, and/or prosecuting or otherwise collecting Rents, other payments, proceeds, premiums, or other sums, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and a reasonable fee or commission to the party conducting the sale on behalf of Lender, not to exceed five percent of the proceeds thereof or sums so received; (b) to the remainder of the Indebtedness as follows: first, to the remaining accrued but unpaid interest, second, to the matured portion of principal of the Indebtedness, and third, to prepayment of the unmatured portion, if any, of principal of the Indebtedness applied to installments of principal in inverse order of maturity; (c) the balance, if any and to the extent applicable, remaining after the full and final payment of the Indebtedness and full performance and discharge of the Obligations, to the holder or beneficiary of any inferior Liens covering the Property, if any, in order of the priority of such inferior Liens (Lender shall hereby be entitled to rely exclusively upon a commitment for title insurance issued to determine such Liens and their priority); and (d) the cash balance, if any, to the Borrower. The application of proceeds of sale or other proceeds as otherwise provided herein shall be deemed to be a payment of the Indebtedness like any other payment. The balance of the Indebtedness remaining unpaid, if any, shall remain fully due and owing in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents.
8.4 Payment of Costs. To the fullest extent allowable under applicable Law, Borrower shall pay all costs incurred or paid by Lender in connection with the Indebtedness, the Obligations, or the Loan Documents (a) in collecting payment, whether or not suit is filed; (b) in defending and/or bringing suit, or if Lender otherwise becomes a party to any suit or proceeding where the Indebtedness, Obligations, or any Loan Documents are involved, or if Lender is required to respond to any service of process, including a subpoena; (c) in foreclosing or taking any other actions to secure possession and exercise Lender’s rights with respect to any collateral; (d) in connection with any bankruptcy, reorganization, or other similar proceeding, or any probate proceeding, involving Borrower, any Guarantor, or any Borrower Control Party which in any way affects the exercise by Lender of its rights and remedies; (e) to otherwise enforce Lender’s rights and remedies pursuant to or which arise out of this Agreement and/or any other Loan Document; (f) in connection with the negotiation, preparation, and execution hereof and of any other Loan Document and any amendment hereto or thereto, or any release, consent, approval, or waiver hereunder or under any other Loan Document; (g) in connection with the making of any advance under the Note; (h) incurred by Lender which are payable or reimbursable by Borrower pursuant to any Loan Document; and (i) which are the obligation of Borrower or incurred by Lender pursuant to any of the Loan Documents. All such costs shall be and become a part of the Indebtedness. Except as otherwise expressly provided for herein, all such costs shall be due and payable when incurred and shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date such costs are paid by Lender until Lender is reimbursed for the respective costs and interest.

8.5 Setoff. In addition to all other rights under any of the Loan Documents, Borrower grants to Lender the right, without any notice or demand, to set off against all money, securities, Termination Fees held by Lender or any agent of Lender, and similar assets of Borrower, now or hereafter in possession of or on deposit with Lender, whether held in a general or special account or deposit, to apply such to any Indebtedness which is due and payable by Borrower to Lender in any order that Lender may determine in Lender’s discretion.
(a) Right to Perform Borrower’s Covenants. If Borrower has failed to keep or perform any covenant whatsoever contained in any of the Loan Documents, Lender may, but shall not be obligated to any Person to do so, perform or attempt to perform said covenant, and any payment made or expense incurred (individually or collectively, a “Protective Advance”) in the performance or attempted performance of any such covenant shall be and become a part of the Obligations, and Borrower promises to pay to Lender, at the place where the Note is payable, all sums so advanced or paid by Lender, with interest from the date when paid or incurred by Lender at the Default Rate upon the earlier of the date that is ninety (90) days after Lender made the Protective Advance and five (5) days after Borrower receives written demand from Lender. No such payment by Lender shall constitute a waiver of any Event of Default. In addition to the Liens hereof, Lender shall be subrogated to all rights, titles, Liens securing the payment of any debt, claim, tax or assessment for the payment of which Lender may make an advance, or which Lender may pay.
(b) Discontinuance of Remedies. In case Lender shall have proceeded to invoke any right, remedy or recourse permitted under the Loan Documents and shall thereafter elect to discontinue or abandon same for any reason, Lender shall have the unqualified right so to do, and in such event, Borrower and Lender shall be restored to their former positions with respect to the Indebtedness, the Loan Documents, the Property or otherwise, and the rights, remedies, recourses and powers of Lender shall continue as if same had never been invoked.
(c) Other Remedies. In addition to the remedies set forth in this Article and in the Security Instrument, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Lender shall, in addition, have all other remedies available to it at law or in equity.
(d) Remedies Cumulative; Non‑Exclusive; Etc. All rights, remedies and recourses of Lender granted in the Loan Documents, any other pledge of collateral or otherwise available at law or in equity: (i) shall be cumulative and concurrent; (ii) may be pursued separately, successively or concurrently against Borrower, the Property or any one or more of them, at the discretion of Lender; (iii) may be exercised as often as occasion therefor shall arise, it being agreed by Borrower that the exercise or failure to exercise any of same shall in no event be construed as a waiver or release thereof or of any other right, remedy or recourse; (iv) shall be nonexclusive; (v) shall not be conditioned upon Lender exercising or pursuing any remedy in relation to the Property prior to Lender bringing suit to recover the Indebtedness or suit on the Obligations; and (vi) in the event Lender elects to bring suit on the Indebtedness and/or the Obligations and obtains a judgment against Borrower prior to exercising any remedies in relation to the Property, all Liens including the Lien of the Security Instrument, shall remain in full force and effect and may be exercised at Lender’s option.

4813-0380-2520, v. 3
(e) Partial Release; Etc. Lender may release, regardless of consideration, any part of the Property without, as to the remainder, in any way impairing, affecting, subordinating or releasing the Lien evidenced by the Loan Documents or affecting the obligations of Borrower or any other party to pay the Indebtedness or perform and discharge the Obligations. For payment of the Indebtedness, Lender may resort to any of the collateral therefor in such order and manner as Lender may elect. No collateral heretofore, herewith or hereafter taken by Lender shall in any manner impair or affect the collateral given pursuant to the Loan Documents, and all collateral shall be taken, considered and held as cumulative. The taking of additional collateral, or the amendment, extension, renewal, or rearrangement of the Indebtedness or Obligations, or any part thereof, shall not release or impair the Lien, or other rights granted by any of the Loan Documents, or affect the liability of Borrower, any endorser, constituent party, or Guarantor, or any other Person or entity obligated for payment or performance of any portion of the Indebtedness or Obligations, or improve the right of any junior lienholder.
(f) Waiver and Release. Borrower, each Borrower Party and Guarantor, and all endorsers of the Note, hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waive and release: (i) all benefits that might accrue to Borrower by virtue of any present or future Law exempting the Property from attachment, levy or sale on execution or providing for any appraisement, stay of execution, exemption from civil process, redemption, or extension of time for payment; (ii) except as otherwise expressly required in any Loan Documents, all notice of any Event of Default, notice of the exercise of any right, remedy, or recourse provided for under the Loan Documents, or any other notice under or with respect to all of the Loan Documents or any action taken by Lender in connection therewith; (iii) any right to a marshaling of assets or a sale in inverse order of alienation; (iv) any right to be released, or any claim that a release has occurred, by reason of any extension of time or any modification to the terms of any of the Loan Documents, except a party will not be liable for an increase in the amount of principal, or interest on such increased principal, pursuant to any such modification if such principal increase was not contemplated in the Loan Documents (absent such modification) or agreed to in writing by such party; and (v) all rights to the benefits of any statute of limitations, moratorium, or laches now provided or which may hereafter be provided by federal or state Law or pursuant to common law, to the fullest extent such rights can be waived and released pursuant to applicable Law.
(g) No Implied Covenants. There are no, nor shall there be any, implied covenants of good faith and fair dealing or other similar covenants or agreements in any of the Loan Documents. All agreed contractual duties are set forth in the Loan Documents.
(h) Real Property Laws Govern. The remedies in this Article VIII shall be available under and governed by the real property Laws of the State and shall not be governed by the personal property Laws of the State provided Lender elects to proceed as to the Security Property together with the other Property under and pursuant to the real property remedies of this Article VIII.
(i) Attorneys’ Fees. Notwithstanding any provision herein or in any other Loan Document, the words “reasonable attorneys’ fees” and words of similar import as used in any Loan Document shall mean only reasonable attorneys’ and paralegals’ fees and costs as actually incurred, without reference to any formula contained in Section 13-1-11 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated or any other statute.

This Agreement is also evidenced and/or secured by the terms, conditions and provisions of the Note, Security Instrument, Assignment, and additionally, may be secured by other contracts, agreements of guaranty or other security instruments. The terms, covenants, conditions and agreements of each security instrument shall be considered a part hereof as fully as if set forth herein verbatim. Any default continuing beyond any applicable notice and cure periods under any of the Loan Documents shall constitute an Event of Default hereunder and under each of the other Loan Documents. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the enforcement or attempted enforcement of the Loan Documents now or hereafter held by Lender shall not prejudice or in any manner affect the right of Lender to enforce any other Loan Document.

Lender’s rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies which Lender may have under other agreements, at law or in equity.
9.3 Illegality. If any provision contained in this Agreement should be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, it shall not affect or impair the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lender may modify any of the Loan Documents for the purposes of completing missing content or correcting erroneous content, without the need for a written amendment, provided that Lender shall send a copy of any such modification to Borrower (which notice may be given by electronic mail). No notice to or demand on Borrower will entitle Borrower to any other or further notice or demand in the same, similar or other circumstance.
9.5 Entire Agreement. This Agreement together with the other Loan Documents constitute the entire agreement and supersede all other prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof.
9.6 Counterparts. This Agreement may be signed in any number of counterpart copies and by the parties hereto on separate counterparts, but all such copies shall constitute one and the same instrument. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Agreement by electronic transmission shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart. Any party so executing this Agreement by electronic transmission shall promptly deliver a manually executed counterpart, provided that any failure to do so shall not affect the validity of the counterpart executed by electronic transmission.
9.7 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of Borrower and Lender and their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns; provided, however, that Borrower may not assign this Agreement in whole or in part without Lender’s prior written consent and Lender at any time may assign this Agreement in whole or in part.

In this Agreement, unless Lender and Borrower otherwise agree in writing, the singular includes the plural and the plural the singular; words importing any gender include the other genders; references to statutes are to be construed as including all statutory provisions consolidating, amending or replacing the statute referred to; the word “or” shall be deemed to include “and/or”, the words “including”, “includes” and “include” shall be deemed to
Providence Square 52 Loan No. 00-1103028

be followed by the words “without limitation”; references to articles, sections (or subdivisions of sections) or exhibits are to those of this Agreement; and references to agreements and other contractual instruments shall be deemed to include all subsequent amendments and other modifications to such instruments, but only to the extent such amendments and other modifications are not prohibited by the terms of this Agreement. Section headings in this Agreement are included for convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part of this Agreement for any other purpose. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, all accounting terms shall be interpreted and all accounting determinations shall be made in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied. If this Agreement is executed by more than one party as Borrower, the obligations of such Persons will be joint and several.

9.10 Governing Law and Jurisdiction. This Agreement has been delivered to and accepted by Lender and will be deemed to be made in the State.

The venue provided above is the most convenient forum for both Lender and Borrower. Borrower waives any objection to venue and any objection based on a more convenient forum in any action instituted under this Agreement.
9.11 Modification Not an Impairment of Security. Lender, without notice, may release any part of the security described herein or may release any Person liable for the Loan without in any way affecting the priority of the Security Instrument, to the full extent of the Loan remaining unpaid hereunder, upon any part of the security not expressly released. Lender, at its option and within Lender’s discretion, may agree with any party obligated on the Loan or having any interest in the security described herein, to extend the time for payment of any part or all of the Loan, and such agreement shall not, in any way, release or impair the Security Instrument, but shall extend the same as against the title of all parties having any interest in said security, which interest is subject to the Security Instrument. In the event Lender (a) releases, as aforesaid, any part of the security described herein or any Person liable for the Loan; (b) grants an extension of time for the payment of the Note; (c) takes other or additional security for the payment of the Note; or (d) waives or fails to exercise any rights granted in any of the Loan Documents, any said act or omission shall not release Borrower, subsequent purchasers of the Property or any part thereof, or any Guarantor from any obligation or any covenant of any of the Loan Documents, nor preclude Lender from exercising any right, power or privilege herein granted or intended to be granted in the event of any other default then made or any subsequent default.
9.12 Replacement Documents. Upon receipt of an affidavit of an officer of Lender as to the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of the Note or any other Loan Document which is not of

9.13 Sole Discretion of Lender. Wherever pursuant to this Agreement Lender exercises any right given to it to approve or disapprove, or any arrangement or term is to be satisfactory to Lender, the decision of Lender to approve or disapprove or to decide that arrangements or terms are satisfactory or not satisfactory shall be in the sole discretion of Lender and shall be final and conclusive, except as may be otherwise expressly and specifically provided herein.
9.14 Expenses. Borrower shall pay Lender, upon the execution of this Agreement, and otherwise on demand, all costs and expenses incurred by Lender in connection with the preparation, negotiation and delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and any modifications thereto, and the collection of all of the Obligations, including but not limited to enforcement actions, relating to the Loan, whether through judicial proceedings or otherwise, or in defending or prosecuting any actions or proceedings arising out of or relating to this Agreement, including reasonable fees and expenses of counsel (which may include costs of in‑house counsel), expenses for auditors, appraisers and environmental consultants, lien searches, recording and filing fees and taxes.

9.15 UCC Financing Statements. Borrower authorizes Lender to file such financing statements, with or without the signature of Borrower, as Lender may elect, as may be necessary or desirable to perfect the Lender’s Lien in the Security Property. Without limiting any other provision herein, Borrower hereby authorizes Lender to file one or more financing statements and any renewal or continuation statements thereof, describing the Property and the proceeds of the Property, including, without limitation, a financing statement covering “all assets of Borrower, all proceeds therefrom, and all rights and privileges with respect thereto.” Borrower further authorizes Lender to file, with or without any additional signature from Borrower, as Lender may elect, such amendments and continuation statements as Lender may deem necessary or desirable from time to time to perfect or continue the Lender’s Lien in the Security Property. Borrower hereby ratifies any financing statements that may have been filed by Lender in advance of the date hereof to perfect Lender’s security interest in the Security Property.
9.16 Secondary Market. Lender may, at any time, sell, transfer or assign any of the Loan Documents, any or all servicing rights with respect thereto, or grant participations therein or issue mortgage pass-through certificates or other securities evidencing a beneficial interest in a rated or unrated public offering or private placement. Lender may forward to each purchaser, transferee, assignee, servicer or participant (collectively, “Investor”), and each prospective Investor, all documents and information which Lender now has or may hereafter acquire relating to the Loan and to Borrower, any Guarantor and the Property, whether furnished by Borrower, any Guarantor or otherwise, as Lender determines necessary or desirable. In connection therewith, Borrower agrees that it shall cooperate with Lender and use commercially reasonable efforts to facilitate the

consummation of any such sale, transfer, assignment, participation or grant which may include the execution of more than one Note secured by the Loan Documents, provided that the total amount of indebtedness under such Notes shall not exceed the amount owing by Borrower under the Loan. Lender shall be responsible for all of Borrower’s reasonable expenses incurred in connection with any such sale, transfer, assignment, participation or grant.
9.17 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EACH OF BORROWER AND LENDER IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR CLAIM OF ANY NATURE RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, ANY DOCUMENTS EXECUTED IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY TRANSACTION CONTEMPLATED IN ANY OF SUCH DOCUMENTS. BORROWER AND LENDER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE FOREGOING WAIVER IS KNOWING AND VOLUNTARY.
9.18 Time of the Essence. Time is of the essence with respect to the performance of Borrower’s and Guarantor’s obligations under the Loan Documents.
9.19 Electronic Images. Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees that Lender may create electronic images and destroy paper originals of any imaged documents received or generated by Lender in connection with the Loan. Any such images maintained by Lender as part of its normal business processes shall be given the same legal effect as the paper original(s) thereof. Borrower hereby agrees that Lender may convert any instrument into a “electronic record” under the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (Ohio Uniform Commercial Code Section 1306.01, et seq.) (the “UETA”), and that the image of such instrument in Lender’s possession shall constitute an “authoritative copy” under the UETA.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
10.1 Non-Recourse Liability. Except as hereinafter provided, the liability of Borrower and any Guarantor with respect to the payment of principal and interest hereunder shall be “non-recourse,” and Lender’s source of satisfaction of the Indebtedness and Borrower’s and Guarantor’s other obligations under the Loan Documents shall be limited to the Property and Lender’s receipt of the Rents from the Property and any other security or collateral now or hereafter held by Lender. Lender shall not seek to procure payment out of other assets of Borrower, any Guarantor or any Person comprising Borrower, nor seek any judgment (except as hereinafter provided) for any sums that are or may be payable under the Loan Documents, including any claim or judgment (except as hereafter provided) for any deficiency remaining after foreclosure of the Security Instrument. The above provisions shall not be deemed to be a release or impairment of the Loan evidenced by the Note or the security therefor intended by the other Loan Documents, nor be deemed to preclude Lender from exercising its rights to foreclose the Security Instrument or to enforce any of its other rights or remedies under the Loan Documents, including but not limited to the Guaranty Agreement. It is expressly understood and agreed that the aforementioned limitation on liability shall in no way affect or apply to the continued personal liability of Borrower or any Guarantor, jointly and severally, for all Enforcement Costs and any and all actual costs, expenses (including Protective Advances), losses and/or damages incurred (other than consequential, punitive, special, or exemplary damages) by Lender as a result of any of the following:

(b) Failure to pay any taxes which accrue prior to Lender taking title to the Property (except to the extent Lender is holding impounds for the same), or to pay assessments, charges for labor or materials, or any other charges that could result in Liens on all or any portion of the Property (except to the extent that sums sufficient to pay such amounts have been deposited into an escrow account with Lender for the purposes of paying such assessments and charges); provided, however, any such failure shall only trigger recourse liability if at the time of such failure, (A) Borrower had sufficient cash flow (i.e., Borrower has not made any distributions (excluding all commercially reasonable third party operating expenses) from the Property over the previous twelve month period) from the Property to pay such amounts but failed to do so; or (B) Borrower (x) had insufficient cash flow from the Property to pay such amounts, (y) failed to give Lender immediate written notice that Borrower would have insufficient cash flow from the Property to pay any amounts owed prior to their delinquency, and (z) is not cooperating with Lender in completing a deed in lieu of foreclosure, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense, to the extent Lender has requested a deed in lieu of foreclosure;

(f) Borrower’s material amendment, modification, renewal, extension, or termination of any Lease (except as expressly provided for therein), without Lender’s consent, if required pursuant to the terms hereof, and the failure to deliver to Lender any Termination Fees (if required pursuant to the terms of the Loan Documents), including any amounts paid in connection with the bankruptcies or insolvencies of such tenants, and Borrower’s failure to assign any claims, proofs of claims or other rights relating to the future right to receive payment of such amounts;
(g) Loss by fire, casualty, acts of terrorism, or other events, not compensated by insurance proceeds collected by or remitted to Lender as a result of Borrower’s failure to comply with Lender’s insurance requirements (including the payment of any required deductibles);
(h) Failure to return to Lender or reimburse Lender for all Security Property owned by Borrower taken from the Property by or on behalf of Borrower out of the ordinary course of business and not replaced by items of like or greater value than the original value of the Security Property so removed;
Providence Square 56 Loan No. 00-1103028
4813-0380-2520, v. 3
(i) Any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or indemnity obligations under the Indemnity Agreement; and
(j) Borrower’s failure to timely pay any amounts payable for all state documentary stamp taxes, recording and transfer taxes, and intangible personal property taxes, if any, which may be levied or assessed against the Loan, or any of the Loan Documents, together with all interest, penalties or charges in connection therewith.
The obligations of Borrower and Carveout Guarantor in subsections (a) through (j) above shall survive (1) foreclosure under the Security Instrument (or Lender’s acceptance of a deed in lieu thereof); or (2) the satisfaction of all Obligations (including the full repayment of the Loan) under the Loan Documents, but only as to claims, or matters which are based upon or arise out of circumstances or conditions which are first created or which first arise or come into existence prior to the events described in (1) and (2) above. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the obligations in subsection (i) above shall be deemed terminated upon the termination of the corresponding obligations pursuant to Section 6.12 of the Indemnity Agreement.
10.2 Full Recourse Liability. Borrower and Guarantor shall become personally liable, jointly and severally, for the entire amount of the Loan (including all principal, interest and other charges associated therewith) and performance under the Loan Documents in the event that: (a) Borrower or any Person having a direct or indirect interest in Borrower violates the covenant governing the placing of secondary financing pursuant to Sections 4.11(a)(ix), 7.1(m), or 8.1(g) of this Agreement, (b) Borrower or any Person having a direct or indirect interest in Borrower violates the covenant restricting Dispositions pursuant to Article VII of this Agreement, (c) Borrower or Carveout Guarantor files a petition in bankruptcy or for the appointment of a receiver, or commences under any bankruptcy or insolvency law, proceedings for its relief or for the compromise, extension, arrangement or adjustment of its obligations, (d) Borrower colludes in an involuntary bankruptcy proceeding filed against Borrower or Carveout Guarantor which is not dismissed within ninety (90) days after the filing of same, (e) there is filed against Borrower any claim, which is not released within ninety (90) days after the filing, by reason of the operation of federal bankruptcy, state insolvency or similar creditors’ rights laws that is based on (i) the Loan being deemed a fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer; or (ii) the Loan being deemed a preferential transfer, (f) in the event any Borrower Parties or any affiliate thereof challenges or disputes the validity or enforceability of any of the provisions of the Loan Documents following a Material Default, seeks to delay or impair the enforcement of Lender’s remedial rights under the Loan Documents following a Material Default under the Loan Documents, or challenges the validity, enforceability or first priority of the liens and security interests securing payment of amounts owing or payable under the terms of the Loan Documents (unless prior to such challenge Borrower has either commenced turning over all revenue (including any security deposits) from the Property or Borrower has cooperated with the appointment of a receiver to preserve and protect the Property during the pendency of such challenge), or (g) Borrower or its assets are substantively consolidated with or into any other entity or such entity’s estate in bankruptcy and a material violation of Section 4.11 of this Agreement was a contributing factor in such consolidation.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, each of the parties hereto has caused this Agreement to be duly executed and delivered as of the date first above written.
