If any amount is not paid either when due under the Terms of Payment or on acceleration of maturity, Borrower promises to pay any unpaid amounts plus interest from the date the payment was due to the date of payment at the Annual Interest Rate on Matured, Unpaid Amounts.





Defaults and Remedies


If Borrower defaults in the payment of this Note or in the performance of any obligation in any instrument securing or collateral to this Note, Lender may declare the unpaid principal balance, earned interest, and any other amounts owed on the note immediately due. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Note, in the event of a default, before exercising any of Lender’s remedies under this Note, Lender will first give Borrower written notice of default and Borrower will have ten (10) days after notice is given in which to cure the default. If the default is not cured ten (10) days after notice, Borrower and each surety, endorser, and guarantor waive all demand for payment, presentation for payment, notice of intention to accelerate maturity, notice of acceleration of maturity, protest, notice of protest, rights under sections 51.003, 51.004, and 51.005 of the Texas Property Code and rights under section 17.001 and chapter 43 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code and rule 31 of the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, to the extent permitted by law.


Origination Fees and Attorney’s Fees


Borrower also promises to pay reasonable attorney’s fees and court and other costs if an attorney is retained to collect or enforce the note. The attorney’s fees and court and other costs if an attorney is retained to collect or enforce the note will bear interest from the date of advance at the Annual Interest Rate on Matured, Unpaid Amounts. Borrower will pay Lender these expenses and interest on demand at the Place for Payment. These expenses and interest will become part of the debt evidenced by the note and will be secured by any security for payment.


Prepayment: This Note may be prepaid in full or in part without the prior written consent of Lender at any time and shall promptly be prepaid pursuant to any liquidation of the Security as defined herein.


Usury Savings


Interest on the debt evidenced by this Note will not exceed the maximum rate or amount of nonusurious interest that may be contracted for, taken, reserved, charged, or received under law. Any interest in excess of that maximum amount will be credited on the Principal Amount or, if the Principal Amount has been paid, refunded. On any acceleration or required or permitted prepayment, any excess interest will be canceled automatically as of the acceleration or prepayment or, if the excess interest has already been paid, credited on the Principal Amount or, if the Principal Amount has been paid, refunded. This provision overrides any conflicting provisions in this Note and all other instruments concerning the debt.
