This Security Instrument, the Note, the Assignment, and the other documents and instruments evidencing or securing the loan evidenced by the Note (excluding the certain Environmental Indemnification Agreement, both dated as of this same date) are referred to herein collectively as the “Loan Documents.”
Mortgagor covenants and agrees with Mortgagee as follows:
Section 1. General Covenants.
1.1. Payment of Indebtedness. Mortgagor shall pay when due all amounts at any time owing under the Note secured by this Security Instrument and shall perform and observe each and every term, covenant and condition contained herein and in the Note.
1.2. Title and Instruments of Further Assurance. Mortgagor represents, warrants, covenants and agrees that it is the lawful owner of the Premises subject to the Permitted Encumbrances and that it has good right and lawful authority to mortgage, assign and pledge the same as provided herein; that it has not made, done, executed or suffered, and will not make, do, execute or suffer, any act or thing whereby its estate or interest in and title to the Premises or any part thereof shall or may be impaired or changed or encumbered in any manner whatsoever except by Permitted Encumbrances; that it does warrant and will defend the title to the Premises against all claims and demands whatsoever not specifically excepted herein; and that it will do, execute, acknowledge and deliver all and every further act, deed, conveyance, transfer and assurance necessary or proper for the carrying out more effectively of the purpose of this Security Instrument and, without limiting the foregoing, for conveying, mortgaging and collaterally assigning unto Mortgagee all of the Premises, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, including without limitation the preparation, execution and filing of any documents, such as control agreements, financing statements and continuation statements, deemed advisable by Mortgagee for maintaining its lien on any property included in the Premises.
1.3. First Lien. The lien created by this Security Instrument is a first and prior lien on the Premises and Mortgagor will keep the Premises and the rights, privileges and appurtenances thereto free from all lien claims of every kind whether superior, equal, or inferior to the lien of this Security Instrument except for that certain Junior Mortgage, Security Agreement and Fixture Filing and that certain Junior Assignment of Leases and Rents, each executed by Mortgagor in favor of Mortgagee and dated as of the date hereof (collectively, the “Junior Lien”) and Permitted Encumbrances and if any such lien be filed, Mortgagor, within twenty (20) days after such filing shall cause same to be discharged by payment, bonding or otherwise to the satisfaction of Mortgagee. Mortgagor further agrees to protect and defend the title and possession of the Premises so that this Security Instrument shall be and remain a first lien thereon until the Obligations be fully paid and performed, or if foreclosure shall be had hereunder so that the purchaser at said sale shall acquire good title in fee simple to the Premises free and clear of all liens and encumbrances except the Permitted Encumbrances.
1.4. Due on Sale or Encumbrance.
(a) Except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement, in the event Mortgagor directly or indirectly sells, conveys, transfers, disposes of, or further encumbers all or any part of the Premises or any interest therein (other than with respect to the Junior Lien), or in the event any ownership interest in Mortgagor (including without limitation voting rights in respect thereof) is directly or indirectly issued, transferred or encumbered, or in the event Mortgagor or any owner of Mortgagor agrees so to do, in any case without the written consent of Mortgagee being first obtained (which consent Mortgagee may withhold in its sole and absolute discretion), then, at the sole option of Mortgagee, Mortgagee may accelerate the Loan and declare the principal of and the accrued interest of the Note, and including all sums advanced hereunder or otherwise payable under the Loan Documents, with interest, to be forthwith due and payable, and thereupon the Note, including both principal and all interest accrued thereon, and including all sums advanced hereunder and interest thereon, shall be and become immediately due and payable without presentment, demand or further notice of any kind. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, a merger, consolidation, reorganization, entity conversion or other restructuring or transfer by operation of law, whereunder Mortgagor or, in the case of an ownership interest, the holder of an ownership interest in Mortgagor, is not the surviving entity as such entity exists on the date hereof, shall be deemed to be a transfer of the Premises or of an ownership interest in Mortgagor; and any transfer of an ownership interest in a general or limited partnership, corporation or limited liability company holding an ownership interest in Mortgagor shall be deemed to be a transfer of such ownership interest in Mortgagor. Consent as to any one transaction shall not be deemed to be a waiver of the right to require consent to future or successive transactions. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, there shall be no subordinate liens or financing relating to the Premises, other than the Junior Lien.
(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, and provided no Event of Default (as hereinafter defined) has occurred and is continuing, one transfer or conveyance of the entire Premises to a transferee approved by Mortgagee in its sole and absolute discretion shall be permitted upon (i) execution by the transferee of an assumption agreement satisfactory to Mortgagee; (ii) receipt by Mortgagee of a non-refundable fee equal to one percent (1%) of the outstanding amount of the Note at the time of such transfer and assumption; (iii) receipt by Mortgagee of an endorsement to Mortgagee’s title policy, in form and substance acceptable to Mortgagee; and (iv) receipt by Mortgagee of opinions of counsel, and authorization documents of Mortgagor and the transferee, satisfactory to Mortgagee. Further, Mortgagee, in its sole and absolute discretion, may require individuals specifically named by Mortgagee to deliver to Mortgagee an Environmental Indemnification Agreement on Mortgagee’s standard form. The rights granted to Mortgagor in this paragraph are personal to the original Mortgagor, shall be extinguished after the exercise thereof, and shall not inure to the benefit of any transferee. Any such transfer and assumption will not release the original Mortgagor or any guarantor of any of Mortgagor’s obligations under the Note or any of the Loan Documents (a “Guarantor”) from any liability to Mortgagee without the written consent of Mortgagee, which consent may be given or withheld in Mortgagee’s sole and absolute discretion and may be conditioned upon the execution of new guaranties from the principals of the transferee, execution by the principals of the transferee of Mortgagee’s standard Environmental Indemnification Agreement, and such other requirements as Mortgagee may deem appropriate in its discretion.
(c) Additionally, and notwithstanding the foregoing, any ownership interest in Mortgagor may be voluntarily sold, transferred, conveyed or assigned by holders thereof as of the date hereof for estate planning purposes to Immediate Family Members (as defined below) or to an entity controlled by a holder of an ownership interest in Mortgagor as of the date hereof or by one or more of such Immediate Family Members, or to a trust for the benefit of any of such parties, provided (i) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing hereunder or under any of the Loan Documents or any separate documents guarantying Mortgagor’s payment and the performance of the Loan, (ii) Mortgagee is notified of such proposed transfer and provided with such documentation evidencing the transfer and identity of the transferee as reasonably requested by Mortgagee, and (iii) Mortgagor reimburses Mortgagee for all fees and expenses including reasonable attorneys’ fees associated with Mortgagee’s review and documentation of the transfer, whether or not consummated. “Immediate Family Members” shall mean the spouse, children and grandchildren of each holder of an ownership interest in Mortgagor, as comprised on the date hereof.
(d) In all events, Mortgagee shall be notified in advance of any proposed transfer, and Mortgagor shall pay, or reimburse Mortgagee for, all costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and expenses, associated with Mortgagee’s review and documentation of any proposed transfer of the Premises or interests in Mortgagor, whether or not consummated.
(e) Additionally, and notwithstanding the foregoing, the issuance or transfer of ownership interests, including without limitation common or preferred stock, common or preferred partnership interests and common or preferred membership interests, in HC Government Realty Trust Inc., a Maryland corporation (the “REIT”), HC Government Realty Holdings, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the “OP”) shall not be prohibited under this Security Instrument as long as (x) the REIT remains the general partner of the OP, (y) such transfer does not result in a change of control of Mortgagor; and (z) Mortgagor provides written notice to Mortgagee not later than thirty (30) days thereafter of any such transfer that results in any person owning twenty percent (20%) or more of the ownership interests in either the REIT or the OP.
(f) Additionally, and notwithstanding the foregoing, Holmwood Capital, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Holmwood”), the sole member and manager of Mortgagor, shall have the one-time right to contribute (the “Contribution”) one hundred percent (100%) of its membership interests in Mortgagor to HC Government Realty Holdings, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Realty Holdings”), which is an affiliate of both Holmwood and Mortgagor, in connection with an intended initial public offering (the “IPO”) of its common stock, pursuant to Regulation A promulgated by Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), in accordance with the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and a qualified Offering Statement filed with the SEC without the consent of Mortgagee. Mortgagor will provide at least fifteen (15) days prior written notice of the Contribution to Mortgagee.

Section 2. Maintenance, Obligations Under Leases, Taxes and Liens, Insurance and Financial Reports.
2.1. Maintenance. Mortgagor will cause the Premises and every part thereof to be maintained, preserved and kept in safe and good repair, working order and condition, will abstain from and not permit the commission of waste in or about the Premises, and will comply with all laws and regulations of any governmental authority with reference to the Premises and the manner of using or operating the same, and with all restrictive covenants, if any, affecting the title to the Premises, or any part thereof. Mortgagor also will from time to time make all necessary and proper repairs, renewals, replacements, additions and betterments thereto, so that the value and efficient use thereof shall be fully preserved and maintained and so as to comply with all laws and regulations as aforesaid. Mortgagor will not otherwise make any material modifications to the Premises without the written consent of Mortgagee.
If Mortgagee has reasonable cause to believe that the Premises is not in compliance with applicable laws and regulations (including environmental, health and safety laws and regulations), at the request of Mortgagee, from time to time, Mortgagor, at its sole cost and expense will furnish Mortgagee with engineering studies and soil tests with respect to the Premises, the form, substance and results of which shall be satisfactory and certified to Mortgagee. If any such engineering studies or soil tests indicate any violation or potential violation, of environmental, health, safety or similar laws or regulations, then Mortgagor, at its sole cost and expense, will promptly take whatever corrective action is necessary to assure the Premises is in full compliance with law.
2.2. Lease Obligations. Mortgagor has, concurrently herewith, executed and delivered to Mortgagee the Assignment, wherein and whereby, among other things, Mortgagor has assigned to Mortgagee all of the rents, issues and profits and any and all leases and the rights of management of the Premises, all as therein more specifically set forth, which Assignment is hereby incorporated herein by reference as fully and with the same effect as if set forth herein at length. Mortgagor agrees that it will duly perform and observe all of the terms and provisions on the landlord’s part to be performed and observed under any and all leases of the Premises and that it will refrain from any action or inaction which would result in the termination by the tenants thereunder of any such leases or in the diminution of the value thereof or of the rents, issues, profits and revenues thereunder. Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to obligate Mortgagee to perform or discharge any obligation, duty or liability of landlord under any lease of the Premises, and Mortgagor shall and does hereby agree to indemnify and hold Mortgagee harmless from any and all liability, loss or damage which Mortgagee may or might incur under any lease of the Premises or by reason of the Assignment except in connection with the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Mortgagee; and any and all such liability, loss or damage incurred by Mortgagee, together with the costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by Mortgagee in the defense of any claims or demands therefor (whether successful or not), shall be so much additional indebtedness hereby secured, and Mortgagor shall reimburse Mortgagee therefor on demand, together with interest at a rate the Default Rate under the Note or, if less, the highest legal rate permitted under applicable law, until paid.
Mortgagor shall not lease or sublease any portion of the Premises without the prior written consent of Mortgagee, nor will Mortgagor permit or enter into any sublease, assignment, modification, amendment or termination of any prior approved lease or sublease without the prior written consent of Mortgagee which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.
2.3. Taxes, Other Governmental Charges, Liens and Utility Charges. Mortgagor shall, before any penalty attaches thereto, pay and discharge or cause to be paid and discharged all taxes, assessments, utility charges and other governmental charges imposed upon or against the Premises or upon or against the Note and the indebtedness secured hereby, and will not suffer to exist any mechanic’s, statutory or other lien on the Premises or any part thereof unless consented to by Mortgagee in writing. If Mortgagee is required by legislative enactment or judicial decision to pay any such tax, assessment or charge, then at the option of Mortgagee, the Note and any accrued interest thereon together with any additions to the mortgage debt shall be and become due and payable at the election of Mortgagee upon notice of such election to Mortgagor; provided, however, said election shall be unavailing and this Security Instrument and the Note shall be and remain in effect as though said law had not been enacted or said decision had not been rendered if, notwithstanding such law or decision, Mortgagor lawfully pays such tax, assessments or charge to or for Mortgagee. Copies of paid tax and assessment receipts shall be furnished to Mortgagee not less than ten (10) days prior to the delinquent dates.
Nothing in this subsection shall require the payment or discharge of any obligation imposed upon Mortgagor by this subsection so long as Mortgagor, upon first notifying Mortgagee of its intent to do so, shall in good faith and at its own expense contest the same or the validity thereof by appropriate legal proceeding which permit the items contested to remain undischarged and unsatisfied during the period of such contest and any appeal therefrom, unless Mortgagee shall notify Mortgagor that, in its opinion, by nonpayment of any such items, the lien of the Security Instrument as to any part of the Premises will be materially endangered or the Premises, or any part thereof, will be subject to loss or forfeiture, in which event such taxes, assessments or charges shall be paid promptly.
(a) Mortgagor shall procure and maintain continuously in effect with respect to the Premises policies of insurance against such risks and in such amounts as are customary for a prudent owner of property comparable to that comprising the Premises. Irrespective of, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing provision, Mortgagor shall specifically maintain the following insurance coverages:
(i) Direct damage insurance providing “special form” or “other perils” coverage, including but not limited to coverage for the following risks of loss:
(B) Extended Coverage Perils,
(C) Vandalism and Malicious Mischief,
(D) Terrorism, and
on a replacement cost basis in an amount equal to the full insurable value thereof (“full insurable value” shall include the actual replacement cost of all buildings and improvements and the contents therein, without deduction for depreciation, architectural, engineering, legal and administrative fees).
The policies required by this subsection 2.4(a)(i) shall be either subject to no coinsurance clause or contain an agreed amount clause and may include a deductibility provision not exceeding Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00).
(ii) Commercial general liability insurance against liability for injuries to or death of any person or damage to or loss of property arising out of or in any way relating to the Premises or any part thereof, and any activities thereon, in the maximum amounts required by any of the leases of the Premises, but in no event less than a minimum annual aggregate limit of Two Million and No/100 Dollars ($2,000,000.00), provided that the foregoing requirements of this paragraph (ii) with respect to the amount of insurance may be satisfied by an excess coverage policy; and in addition, if the Note has an original principal balance of $15,000,000.00 or more, excess liability coverage in an amount not less than $5,000,000.00.
(iii) Business interruption or loss of rental income insurance (A) in an amount equal to not less than the gross revenue from the operation and rental of all improvements now or hereafter forming part of the Premises for a period of twelve (12) months, or (B) on an actual-losses-sustained basis for a minimum period of twelve (12) months, naming Mortgagee in a standard mortgagee loss payable clause thereunder.
(iv) Insurance against such other casualties and contingencies as Mortgagee may from time to time require, if such insurance against such other casualties and contingencies is available, all in such manner and for such amounts as may be reasonably satisfactory to Mortgagee.
(b) All insurance provided for in subsection 2.4(a) shall be effective under a valid and enforceable policy or policies issued by an insurer of recognized responsibility approved by Mortgagee (an insurer with a Best Class rating of at least A-/VIII shall be deemed approved).
(c) All policies of insurance required in subsections 2.4(a)(i) and (iii) shall be written in the names of Mortgagor and Mortgagee as their respective interests may appear. These policies shall provide that the proceeds of such insurance shall be payable to Mortgagee pursuant to a standard mortgagee clause to be attached to each such policy. The policy required in subsection 2.4(a)(ii) shall name Mortgagee as an additional insured on a primary and noncontributory basis.
(d) Mortgagor shall deposit with Mortgagee policies evidencing all such insurance, or a certificate or certificates of the respective insurers stating that such insurance is in force and effect. At least seven (7) days prior to the date the premiums on each such policy shall become due and payable, Mortgagee shall be furnished with proof of such payment reasonably satisfactory to it. Each policy of insurance herein required shall contain a provision that the insurer shall not cancel, refuse to renew or materially modify it without giving written notice to Mortgagee at least thirty (30) days before the cancellation, non-renewal or modification becomes effective. Before the expiration of any policy of insurance herein required, Mortgagor shall furnish Mortgagee with evidence satisfactory to Mortgagee that the policy has been renewed or replaced by another policy conforming to the provisions of this Section or that there is no necessity therefor under the terms hereof. In lieu of separate policies, Mortgagor may maintain blanket policies having the coverage required herein, in which event it shall deposit with Mortgagee a certificate or certificates of the respective insurance as to the amount of coverage in force on the Premises.
2.5. Advances. If Mortgagor shall fail to comply with any of the terms, covenants and conditions herein with respect to the procuring of insurance, the payment of taxes, assessments and other charges, the keeping of the Premises in repair, or any other term, covenant or condition herein contained, Mortgagee may make advances to perform the same and, where necessary, enter the Premises for the purpose of performing any such term, covenant or condition, and without limitation of the foregoing, Mortgagee may procure and place insurance coverage in accordance with the requirements of subsection 2.4 above. Mortgagor agrees to repay all sums so advanced upon demand, with interest at the Default Rate under the Note or, if less, the highest legal rate permitted under applicable law, until paid. All sums so advanced, with interest, shall be secured hereby in priority to the indebtedness evidenced by the Note, but no such advance shall be deemed to relieve Mortgagor from any default hereunder. After making any such advance, payments made pursuant to the Note shall be first applied toward reimbursement for any such advance and interest thereon, prior to the application toward accrued interest and principal payments due pursuant to the Note.
2.6. Financial Information.
(a) Mortgagor shall keep and maintain books and records of account, or cause books and records of account to be kept and maintained in which full, true and correct entries shall be made of all dealings and transactions relative to the Premises, which books and records of account shall, at reasonable times during business hours and on reasonable notice, be open to inspection by Mortgagee and Mortgagee’s accountants and other duly authorized representatives. Such books of record and account shall be kept and maintained either (i) in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied, or (ii) in accordance with a cash basis or other recognized comprehensive basis of accounting consistently applied.
(b) (i) Mortgagor covenants and agrees to furnish, or cause to be furnished to Mortgagee, annually within ninety (90) days following the end of each fiscal year of Mortgagor, unaudited annual financial reports prepared on a cash basis, including balance sheets, income statements and cash flow statements, covering the operation of the Premises, Mortgagor, and any guarantors for the previous fiscal year, and a current rent roll of the Premises, all certified to Mortgagee to be complete, correct and accurate by Mortgagor, or an officer, manager or a general partner of any corporate, limited liability company or partnership Mortgagor, or by the individual or the managing partner or chief financial officer of such other party as the report concerns.
(ii) Mortgagee shall have the right at any time and from time-to-time to request such additional financial information as Mortgagee determines is necessary or appropriate, and updated rent rolls for the Premises for purposes of monitoring current leasing.
(c) After an Event of Default (including the failure of Mortgagor to deliver any report or statement required by this Section 2.6), Mortgagee may elect, in addition to exercising any remedy for an Event of Default as provided for in this Security Instrument, to make an audit of all books and records of Mortgagor including its bank accounts that in any way pertain to the Premises and to have prepared a statement or statements as required by Mortgagee. Such audit shall be made and such statement or statements shall be prepared by an independent certified public accountant to be selected by Mortgagee. Mortgagor shall pay all reasonable expenses of the audit and other services, which expenses shall be secured hereby as additional indebtedness and shall be immediately due and payable with interest thereon at the Default Rate of interest as set forth in the Note and shall be secured by this Security Instrument.
2.7. Use of Premises. Mortgagor shall furnish and keep in force a Certificate of Occupancy, or its equivalent, and comply with all restrictions affecting the Premises and with all laws, ordinances, acts, rules, regulations and orders of any legislative, executive, administrative or judicial body, commission or officer (whether Federal, State or local), exercising any power of regulation or supervision over Mortgagor, or any part of the Premises, whether the same be directed to the erection, repair, manner of use or structural alteration of buildings or otherwise. Mortgagor shall not initiate, join in, acquiesce in, or consent to any change in any private restrictive covenant, zoning law or other public or private restriction, limiting or defining the uses which may be made of the Premises or any part thereof, nor shall Mortgagor initiate, join in, acquiesce in, or consent to any zoning change or zoning matter affecting the Premises. If under applicable zoning provisions the use of all or any portion of the Premises is or shall become a nonconforming use, Mortgagor will not cause or permit such nonconforming use to be discontinued or abandoned without the express written consent of Mortgagee. Mortgagor shall not permit or suffer to occur any waste on or to the Premises or to any portion thereof and shall not take any steps whatsoever to convert the Premises, or any portion thereof, to a condominium or cooperative form of management. Mortgagor will not install or permit to be installed on the Premises any underground storage tank.
2.8. Escrows. Mortgagor shall pay to Mortgagee, together with and in addition to the monthly payments of principal and interest provided for in the Note (which shall be by Automated Clearing House if provided for in the Note for installment payments thereunder), an amount reasonably estimated by Mortgagee to be sufficient to pay one twelfth (1/12) of the estimated annual real estate taxes (including other charges against the Premises by governmental or quasi-governmental bodies but excluding special assessments which are to be paid as the same become due and payable) and one-twelfth (1/12) of the annual premiums on insurance required in subsection 2.4 hereof to be held by Mortgagee and used to pay said taxes and insurance premiums when same shall fall due; provided that upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Mortgagee may apply such funds as Mortgagee shall deem appropriate. If at the time that payments are to be made, the funds set aside for payment of either taxes or insurance premiums are insufficient, Mortgagor shall upon demand pay such additional sums as Mortgagee shall determine to be necessary to cover the required payment. Mortgagee need not segregate such funds. No interest shall be payable to Mortgagor upon any such payments.

(“Phase I”), neither Mortgagor nor the Premises or any occupant thereof are in violation of, or subject to any existing, pending or threatened investigation or inquiry by any governmental authority pertaining to, any Environmental Law. Mortgagor shall not cause or permit the Premises to be in violation of, or do anything which would subject the Premises to any remedial obligations under, any Environmental Law, and shall promptly notify Mortgagee in writing of any existing, pending or threatened investigation or inquiry by any governmental authority in connection with any Environmental Law. In addition, Mortgagor shall provide Mortgagee with copies of any and all material written communications with any governmental authority in connection with any Environmental Law, concurrently with Mortgagor’s giving or receiving of same.
(ii) Except as shown on the Phase I, there are no underground storage tanks, radon, asbestos materials, polychlorinated biphenyls or urea formaldehyde insulation present at or installed in the Premises.

(iii) Mortgagor has taken all steps necessary to determine and has determined that there has been no Release of any Hazardous Substance at, upon, under or within the Premises.

During the term of this Security Instrument, Mortgagor shall take all steps necessary to determine whether there has been a Release of any Hazardous Substance on or to the Premises and if Mortgagor finds a Release has occurred, Mortgagor shall remove or remediate the same promptly upon discovery at its sole cost and expense.
(iv) Except as shown on the Phase I, none of the real property owned and/or occupied by Mortgagor and located in Arkansas, including without limitation the Premises, has ever been used by the present or previous owners and/or operators or will be used in the future to refine, produce, store, handle, transfer, process, transport, generate, manufacture, treat, recycle or dispose of Hazardous Substances (other than a Permitted Hazardous Substance).
(v) Mortgagor has not received any written notice of violation, request for information, summons, citation, directive or other communication, written or oral, from any Arkansas department of environmental protection (howsoever designated) or the United States Environmental Protection Agency concerning any intentional or unintentional act or omission on Mortgagor’s or any occupant’s part resulting in the Release of Hazardous Substances into the waters or onto the lands within the jurisdiction of the State of Arkansas or into the waters outside the jurisdiction of the State of Arkansas resulting in damage to the lands, waters, fish, shellfish, wildlife, biota, air or other resources owned, managed, held in trust or otherwise controlled by or within the jurisdiction of the State of Arkansas.
(vi) Except as shown on the Phase I, the real property owned and/or occupied by Mortgagor and located in Arkansas, including without limitation the Premises: (a) is being and has been operated in compliance with all Environmental Laws, and all permits required thereunder have been obtained and complied with in all respects; and (b) does not have any Hazardous Substances present (other than a Permitted Hazardous Substance).

In the event that any such lien is filed, Mortgagor shall, within thirty (30) days from the date that Mortgagor is given notice of such lien (or within such shorter period of time as is appropriate in the event that the State of Arkansas or the United States has commenced steps to have the Premises sold), either: (A) pay the claim and remove the lien from the Premises; or (B) furnish a cash deposit, bond or other security satisfactory in form and substance to Mortgagee in an amount sufficient to discharge the claim out of which the lien arises.

(c) Right to Inspect and Cure. Mortgagee shall have the right to conduct or have conducted by its agents or contractors such environmental inspections, audits and tests as Mortgagee shall deem necessary or advisable from time to time at the sole cost and expense of Mortgagor; provided, however, that Mortgagor shall not be obligated to bear the expense of such environmental inspections, audits and tests so long as (i) no Event of Default exists, and (ii) Mortgagee has no cause to believe in its sole judgment that there has been a Release or threatened or suspected Release of Hazardous Substances at the Premises or that Mortgagor or the Premises is in violation of any Environmental Law. The cost of such inspections, audits and tests, if chargeable to Mortgagor as aforesaid, shall be added to the indebtedness secured hereby and shall be secured by this Security Instrument.

The indemnity evidenced hereby shall survive the satisfaction, release or extinguishment of the lien of this Security Instrument, including without limitation any extinguishment of the lien of this Security Instrument by foreclosure or deed in lieu thereof.
(e) Remediation. If any investigation, site monitoring, containment, remediation, removal, restoration or other remedial work of any kind or nature (the “Remedial Work”) is reasonably desirable (in the case of an operation and maintenance program or similar monitoring or preventative programs) or necessary, both as determined by an independent environmental consultant selected by Mortgagee under any applicable federal, state or local law, regulation or ordinance, or under any judicial or administrative order or judgment, or by any governmental person, board, commission or agency, because of or in connection with the current or future presence, suspected presence, Release or suspected Release of a Hazardous Substance into the air, soil, groundwater, or surface water at, on, about, under or within the Premises or any portion thereof, Mortgagor shall within thirty (30) days after written demand by Mortgagee for the performance (or within such shorter time as may be required under applicable law, regulation, ordinance, order or agreement), commence and thereafter diligently prosecute to completion all such Remedial Work to the extent required by law. All Remedial Work shall be performed by contractors approved in advance by Mortgagee and under the supervision of a consulting engineer approved in advance by Mortgagee (which approval in each case shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). All costs and expenses of such Remedial Work (including without limitation the reasonable fees and expenses of Mortgagee’s counsel) incurred in connection with monitoring or review of the Remedial Work shall be paid by Mortgagor to Mortgagee within fifteen (15) days following Mortgagor’s written demand therefor. If Mortgagor shall fail or neglect to timely commence or cause to be commenced, or shall fail to diligently prosecute to completion, such Remedial Work, Mortgagee may (but shall not be required to) cause such Remedial Work to be performed; and all costs and expenses thereof, or incurred in connection therewith (including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and expenses of Mortgagee’s counsel), shall be paid by Mortgagor to Mortgagee upon demand and shall be a part of the indebtedness secured hereby. There is no time limit on Mortgagor’s covenants hereunder, and Mortgagor hereby waives all present and future statutes of limitations as a defense to any action to enforce the provisions of Section 2.9 of this Security Instrument.
(f) Survival. All warranties and representations above shall be deemed to be continuing and shall remain true and correct in all material respects until all of the indebtedness secured hereby has been paid in full and any limitations period expires. Mortgagor’s covenants above shall survive any exercise of any remedy by Mortgagee hereunder or under any other instrument or document now or hereafter evidencing or securing the said indebtedness, including foreclosure of this Security Instrument (or deed in lieu thereof), even if, as a part of such foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure, the said indebtedness is satisfied in full and/or this Security Instrument shall have been released.

All proceeds of insurance maintained pursuant to subsections 2.4(a)(i) and (iii) hereof shall be paid to Mortgagee and shall be applied first to the payment of all costs and expenses incurred by Mortgagee in obtaining such proceeds and, second, at the option of Mortgagee, either: (a) to the reduction of the indebtedness hereby secured (without any otherwise applicable prepayment premium); or (b) to the restoration or repair of the Premises, without affecting the lien of this Security Instrument or the obligations of Mortgagor hereunder. Mortgagee is authorized at its option to compromise and settle all loss claims on said policies. Any such application to the reduction of the indebtedness hereby secured shall not reduce or postpone the monthly payments otherwise required pursuant to the Note.

Mortgagee is authorized at its option to compromise and settle all awards or consideration for the property so taken. Any such awards, if applied to the reduction of indebtedness, shall not reduce or postpone the monthly payments otherwise required pursuant to the Note. No interest shall be payable to Mortgagor on any award while held by Mortgagee.
3.3. Mortgagee to Make Proceeds Available. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsections 3.1 and 3.2 above, in the event of insured damage to the Premises or in the event of a taking by eminent domain of only a portion of the Premises, and provided that: (a) the portion remaining can with restoration or repair continue to be operated for the purposes utilized immediately prior to such damage or taking, (b) the appraised value of the Premises after such restoration or repair shall not have been reduced from the appraised value as of the date hereof, (c) no Event of Default exists hereunder, and (d) the leases require Mortgagor to restore or repair the Premises and the leases remain in full force and effect and the tenants thereunder certify to Mortgagee their intention to remain in possession of the leased premises without any reduction in rental payments (other than temporary abatements during the period of restoration and repair); Mortgagee agrees to make the insurance proceeds or condemnation awards available for such restoration and repair, except for proceeds payable pursuant to subsection 2.4(a)(iii). Mortgagee may, at its option, hold such proceeds or awards in escrow (subject to the following paragraph) until the required restoration and repair has been satisfactorily completed, and all costs and expenses incurred by Mortgagee in administering the same, including without limitation any costs of inspection, shall be paid or reimbursed by Mortgagor. No interest shall be payable to Mortgagor with respect to any such escrow.
In the event insurance proceeds or condemnation awards are made available for restoration in accordance with the foregoing, such proceeds shall be made available, from time to time, upon Mortgagee being furnished with such information, documents, instruments and certificates as Mortgagee may require, including, but not limited to, satisfactory evidence of the estimated cost of completion of the repair or restoration of the Premises, such architect’s certificates, waivers of lien, contractor’s sworn statements and other evidence of cost and of payments, including, at the option of Mortgagee, insurance against mechanics’ liens and/or a performance bond or bonds in form satisfactory to Mortgagee, with premium fully prepaid, under the terms of which Mortgagee shall be either the sole or dual obligee, and which shall be written with such surety company or companies as may be satisfactory to Mortgagee, and all plans and specifications for such rebuilding or restoration which shall be subject to approval by Mortgagee. No payment made prior to the final completion of the work shall exceed ninety percent (90%) of the value of the work performed, from time to time, and at all times the undisbursed balance of said proceeds, plus additional funds deposited by Mortgagor remaining in the hands of Mortgagee shall be at least sufficient to pay for the cost of completion of the work free and clear of liens.

After the happening of any Event of Default that continues beyond any applicable cure period or upon the commencement of any proceedings to foreclose this Security Instrument or to enforce the specific performance hereof or in aid thereof or upon the commencement of any other judicial proceeding to enforce any right of Mortgagee, Mortgagee shall be entitled, as a matter of right, if it shall so elect, without the giving of notice to any other party and without regard to the adequacy or inadequacy of any security for the mortgage indebtedness, forthwith either before or after declaring the unpaid principal of the Note to be due and payable, to the appointment of a receiver or receivers or a fiscal agent or fiscal agents.

4.7. Waiver of Extension, Marshaling; Other. Mortgagor hereby waives to the full extent lawfully allowed the benefit of any appraisement, homestead, moratorium, stay and extension laws now or hereafter in force. Mortgagor hereby further waives any rights available with respect to marshaling of assets so as to require the separate sales of any portion of the Premises, or as to require Mortgagee to exhaust its remedies against a specific portion of the Premises before proceeding against any other, and does hereby expressly consent to and authorize the sale of the Premises as a single unit or parcel. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Mortgagor irrevocably and unconditionally WAIVES and RELEASES any present or future rights (a) of dower, homestead, courtesy, reinstatement or redemption, including without limitation the right of redemption codified at Ark. Code Ann. § 18-49-106, (b) that may exempt the Premises from any civil process, (c) to appraisal or valuation of the Premises, (d) to extension of time for payment, (e) that may subject Mortgagee’s exercise of its remedies to the administration of any decedent’s estate or to any partition or liquidation action, (f) to any homestead and exemption rights provided by the Constitution and laws of the United States and of the State of Arkansas, (g) to notice of acceleration or notice of intent to accelerate (other than as expressly stated herein), and (h) that in any way would delay or defeat the right of Mortgagee to cause the sale of the Premises for the purpose of satisfying the obligations secured hereby. Mortgagor agrees that the price paid at a lawful foreclosure sale, whether by Mortgagee or by a third party, and whether paid through cancellation of all or a portion of the Note or in cash, shall conclusively establish the value of the Premises.
4.8. Costs of Collection. Mortgagor shall pay within fifteen (15) days following written demand all costs and expenses incurred by Mortgagee in enforcing or protecting its rights and remedies hereunder, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal expenses, including, without limitation, any post-judgment fees, costs or expenses incurred on any appeal, in collection of any judgment, or in appearing and/or enforcing any claim in any bankruptcy proceeding. In the event of a judgment on the Note, Mortgagor agrees to pay to Mortgagee on demand all costs and expenses incurred by Mortgagee in satisfying such judgment, including without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of Mortgagee’s counsel, including taxes and post-judgment interest. It is expressly understood that such agreement by Mortgagor to pay the aforesaid post-judgment costs and expenses of Mortgagee is absolute and unconditional and (i) shall survive (and not merge into) the entry of a judgment for amounts owing hereunder and (ii) shall not be limited regardless of whether the Note or other obligation of Mortgagor or a guarantor, as applicable, is secured or unsecured, and regardless of whether Mortgagee exercises any available rights or remedies against any collateral pledged as security for the Note and shall not be limited or extinguished by merger of the Note or other Loan Documents into a judgment of foreclosure or other judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, and shall remain in full force and effect post-judgment and shall continue in full force and effect with regard to any subsequent proceedings in a court of competent jurisdiction including but not limited to bankruptcy court and shall remain in full force and effect after collection of such foreclosure or other judgment until such fees and costs are paid in full. Such fees or costs shall be added to Mortgagee’s lien on the Premises that which shall also survive foreclosure or other judgment and collection of said judgment.
Section 5. Mortgagee.
5.1. Right of Mortgagee to Pay Taxes and Other Charges. In case any tax, assessment or governmental or other charge upon any part of the Premises or any insurance premium with respect thereto is not paid, to the extent, if any, that the same is legally payable, Mortgagee may pay such tax, assessment, governmental charge or premium, without prejudice, however, to any rights of Mortgagee hereunder arising in consequence of such failure; and any amount at any time so paid under this subsection (whether incurred before or after judgment of foreclosure), with interest thereon from the date of payment at a rate equal to twelve percent (12%) per annum or, if less, the highest legal rate permitted under applicable law, until paid, shall be repaid to Mortgagee upon demand and shall become so much additional indebtedness secured by this Security Instrument, and the same shall be given a preference in payment over principal of or interest on the Note, but Mortgagee shall be under no obligation to make any such payment.
5.2. Reimbursement of Mortgagee. If any action or proceeding be commenced (except an action to foreclose this Security Instrument), to which action or proceeding Mortgagee is made a party, or in which it becomes necessary, in Mortgagee’s reasonable opinion, to defend or uphold the lien of this Security Instrument, or to protect the Premises or any part thereof, all reasonable sums paid by Mortgagee to establish or defend the rights and lien of this Security Instrument or to protect the Premises or any part thereof (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, and costs and allowances) and whether suit be brought or not, shall be paid, upon demand, to Mortgagee by Mortgagor, together with interest at a rate equal to twelve percent (12%) per annum or, if less, the highest legal rate permitted under applicable law, until paid. Any such sum or sums and the interest thereon shall be secured hereby in priority to the indebtedness evidenced by the Note.
5.3. Release of Premises. Mortgagee shall have the right at any time, and from time to time, at its discretion to release from the lien of this Security Instrument all or any part of the Premises without in any way prejudicing its rights with respect to all of the Premises not so released.
Section 6. Security Agreement.
6.1. Security Agreement and Financing Statement Under Uniform Commercial Code. Mortgagor (being a debtor as that term is used in the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of Arkansas) as in effect from time to time (herein called the “Code”), as security for payment of the Note, hereby grants a security interest in any part of the Premises other than real estate (all for the purposes of this Section called “Collateral”) now or in the future owned by Mortgagor, including any proceeds generated therefrom (although such coverage shall not be interpreted to mean that Mortgagee consents to the sale of any of the Collateral), to Mortgagee (being the secured party as that term is used in the Code) and hereby authorizes Mortgagee to file financing statements covering the Collateral. This Security Instrument constitutes a security agreement and a financing statement, including a fixture financing statement, under the Code. All of the terms, provisions, conditions and agreements contained in this Security Instrument pertain and apply to the Collateral as fully and to the same extent as to any other property comprising the Premises; and the following provisions of this Section shall not limit the generality or applicability of any other provision of this Security Instrument but shall be in addition thereto.
6.2. Defined Terms. The terms and provisions contained in this Section shall, unless the context otherwise requires, have the meanings and be construed as provided in the Code.
6.3. Mortgagor’s Representations and Warranties. Mortgagor represents that:
(a) It has rights in, or the power to transfer, the Collateral, and the Collateral is subject to no liens, charges or encumbrances other than the lien hereof, other than the Junior Lien and Permitted Encumbrances.
(b) As of the date of this Security Instrument, no other party has a perfected interest in any of the Collateral.
(c) It is an organization, being a limited liability company organized under the laws of the State of Delaware.
6.4. Mortgagor’s Obligations. Mortgagor agrees that until its obligations hereunder are paid in full:
(a) It shall not change its legal name, its type of organization or its state of organization, and shall not merge or consolidate with any other person or entity without Mortgagee’s prior approval (or without at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to Mortgagee where Mortgagor is the surviving entity of any such merger or consolidation) or except as otherwise expressly permitted herein.
(b) It shall not pledge, mortgage or create, or suffer to exist a security interest in the Collateral in favor of any person other than Mortgagee.
(c) It shall keep the Collateral in good order and repair and will not use the same in violation of law or any policy of insurance thereon.
(d) It shall use the Collateral solely for business purposes, being installed upon the Premises for Mortgagor’s own use or as the equipment and furnishings furnished by Mortgagor, as landlord, to tenants of the Premises, if applicable.
(e) It shall keep the Collateral at the Land and shall not remove, sell, assign or transfer it therefrom, nor allow a third party to do so, without the prior written consent of Mortgagee, which may be withheld in Mortgagee’s sole and absolute discretion, unless disposed of in the ordinary course of business and replaced with items of comparable utility and/or quality and value free and clear of all liens or title retention devices. The Collateral may be affixed to such real estate but will not be affixed to any other real estate.
(f) It will, on its own initiative, or as Mortgagee may from time to time reasonably request, and at its own cost and expense, take all steps necessary and appropriate to establish and maintain Mortgagee’s perfected security interest in the Collateral subject to no adverse liens or encumbrances, other than the Junior Lien and Permitted Encumbrances, including, but not limited to, furnishing to Mortgagee additional information, delivering possession of the Collateral to Mortgagee, executing and delivering to Mortgagee and/or authorizing Mortgagee to file financing statements and other documents in a form satisfactory to Mortgagee, placing a legend that is acceptable to Mortgagee on all chattel paper created by Mortgagor indicating that Mortgagee has a security interest in the chattel paper and assisting Mortgagee in obtaining executed copies of any and all documents required of third parties.
6.5. Right of Inspection. At any and all reasonable times, Mortgagee and its duly authorized agents, attorneys, experts, engineers, accountants and representatives shall have the right to inspect the Collateral fully to ensure compliance with this Security Instrument.
(a) Upon an Event of Default that continues beyond any applicable cure period hereunder and at any time thereafter, Mortgagee at its option may declare the indebtedness hereby secured immediately due and payable, and thereupon Mortgagee shall have the remedies of a secured party under the Code, including without limitation, the right to take immediate and exclusive possession of the Collateral, or any part thereof, and for that purpose may, so far as Mortgagor can give authority therefor, with or without judicial process, enter (if this can be done without breach of the peace) upon any place where the Collateral or any part thereof may be situated and remove the same therefrom (provided that if the Collateral is affixed to real estate, such removal shall be subject to the condition stated in the Code); and Mortgagee shall be entitled to hold, maintain, preserve and prepare the Collateral for sale, until disposed of, or may propose to retain the Collateral subject to Mortgagor’s right of redemption in satisfaction of Mortgagor’s obligations, as provided in the Code. Mortgagee, without removal, may render the Collateral unusable and dispose of the Collateral on the Premises. Mortgagee may require Mortgagor to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Mortgagee for its possession at a place to be designated by Mortgagee which is reasonably convenient to both parties. Mortgagee will give Mortgagor at least ten (10) days notice of the time and place of any public sale thereof or of the time after which any private sale or any other intended disposition thereof is made. The requirements of reasonable notice shall be met if such notice is mailed, by certified mail or equivalent, postage prepaid, to the address of Mortgagor hereinabove set forth and at least ten (10) days before the time of the sale or disposition. Mortgagee may buy at any public sale and, if the Collateral is of a type customarily sold in a recognized market or is of a type which is the subject of widely distributed standard price quotations, Mortgagee may buy at private sale. Any such sale may be held as part of and in conjunction with any foreclosure sale of the real estate comprised within the Premises, the Collateral and real estate to be sold as one lot if Mortgagee so elects. The net proceeds realized upon any such disposition, after deduction for the expenses of retaking, holding, preparing for sale, selling or the like and the reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal expenses incurred by Mortgagee, shall be applied in satisfaction of the indebtedness hereby secured. Mortgagee will account to Mortgagor for any surplus realized on such disposition.
(b) The remedies of Mortgagee hereunder are cumulative and the exercise of any one or more of the remedies provided for herein or under the Code shall not be construed as a waiver of any of the other remedies of Mortgagee, including having the Collateral deemed part of the realty upon and foreclosure thereof so long as any part of the indebtedness hereby secured remains unsatisfied.
6.7. Fixture Filing. This Security Instrument creates a security interest in goods that are or are to become fixtures related to the Land, shall be effective as a fixture filing under Ark. Code Ann. § 4-9-101 et seq., and is to be filed in the real estate records. The “debtor” is the Mortgagor and the record owner of the Land; the “secured party” is the Mortgagee; the collateral is as described in this Mortgage; and the addresses of the debtor and secured party are the addresses stated in this Mortgage for notices to such parties.
Section 7. Miscellaneous.
7.1. Additions to Premises. In the event any additional improvements, Equipment, or property not herein specifically identified shall be or in the future become a part of the Premises by location or installation on the Premises or otherwise, then this Security Instrument shall immediately attach to and constitute a lien or security interest against such additional items without further act or deed of Mortgagor.
7.2. Additional Notes. Mortgagor may also issue additional promissory notes (the “Additional Notes”) from time to time in order to evidence additional indebtedness of Mortgagor to Mortgagee. The Additional Notes shall be equally and proportionately secured by the lien of this Security Instrument with the Note, without preference, priority or distinction as to lien or otherwise, notwithstanding the date of issuance thereof. From and after the issuance of any Additional Notes, the term Note shall be deemed to include the Additional Notes in respect to all matters of benefits and security under and in the enforcement of this Security Instrument.
7.3. No Waiver. Mortgagee shall not be deemed, by any act or omission or commission, to have waived any of its rights or remedies hereunder unless such waiver is in writing and signed by Mortgagee and then, only to the extent specifically set forth in the writing. A waiver with reference to one event shall not be construed as continuing or as a bar to or waiver of any right or remedy as to a subsequent event. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, no waiver of, or election by Mortgagee not to pursue, enforcement of any provision hereof shall affect, waive or diminish in any manner Mortgagee’s right to pursue the enforcement of any other provision.
7.4. Supplements or Amendments. This Security Instrument may not be supplemented or amended except by written agreement between Mortgagee and Mortgagor.
7.5. Successors and Assigns. All provisions hereof shall inure to and bind the respective successors and assigns of the parties hereto. The word Mortgagor shall include all persons claiming under or through Mortgagor and all persons liable for the payment of indebtedness or any part thereof, whether or not such persons shall have executed the Note or this Security Instrument. Wherever used, the singular number shall include the plural, the plural the singular, and the use of any gender shall be applicable to all genders.
7.6. Notices. All notices, demands, consents or requests which are either required or desired to be given or furnished hereunder (a “Notice”) shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been properly given if either delivered personally or by overnight commercial courier or sent by United States registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, to the address of the parties hereinabove set out. Such Notice shall be effective upon (i) receipt or refusal if by personal delivery, (ii) the first Business Day (being a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or holiday on which national banks are authorized to be closed) after the deposit of such Notice with an overnight courier service by the time deadline for next Business Day delivery if by commercial courier, and (iii) upon the earliest of receipt or refusal (which shall include a failure to respond to notification of delivery by the U.S. Postal Service) or five (5) Business Days following mailing if sent by U.S. Postal Service mail. By Notice complying with the foregoing, each party may from time to time change the address to be subsequently applicable to it for the purpose of the foregoing.
7.7. Severability. If any provision of this Security Instrument shall be held or deemed to be or shall, in fact, be illegal, inoperative or unenforceable, the same shall not affect any other provision or render the same invalid, inoperative, or unenforceable to any extent whatsoever.
7.8. Choice of Law. This Security Instrument shall be construed and enforced according to and governed by the laws of Arkansas(excluding conflicts of laws rules) and applicable federal law.
7.9. Captions. All captions and headings in this Security Instrument are included for convenience or reference only and shall in no respect constitute a part of the terms hereof nor describe, define or in any manner limit the scope of this Security Instrument, any interest granted hereby or any term or provision hereof.
7.10. Counterparts. This Security Instrument may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original (except a fully executed original will be required for recording), but all of which when taken together shall constitute but one and the same instrument. Executed copies of the signature pages of this Security Instrument sent by facsimile or transmitted electronically in either Tagged Image Format (“TIFF”) or Portable Document Format (“PDF”) shall be treated as originals, fully binding and with full legal force and effect, and the parties waive any rights they may have to object to such treatment. Any party delivering an executed counterpart of this Security Instrument by facsimile, TIFF or PDF also shall deliver a manually executed counterpart of this Security Instrument, but the failure to deliver a manually executed counterpart shall not affect the validity, enforceability, and binding effect of this Security Instrument. The pages of any counterpart of this Security Instrument containing any party’s signature or the acknowledgment of such party’s signature hereto may be detached therefrom without impairing the effect of the signature or acknowledgment, provided such pages are attached to any other counterpart identical thereto except having additional pages containing the signatures or acknowledgments thereof of other parties.
7.11. Further Assurances. Mortgagor will, from time to time, upon ten (10) business days’ prior written request from Mortgagee, make, execute, acknowledge and deliver to Mortgagee such supplemental mortgages, certificates and other documents, as may be necessary for better assuring and confirming unto Mortgagee any of the Premises, or for more particularly identifying and describing the Premises, or to preserve or protect the priority of the lien of this Security Instrument, and generally do and perform such other acts and things and execute and deliver such other instruments and documents as may reasonably be deemed necessary or advisable by Mortgagee to carry out the intentions of this Security Instrument.
7.12. Discrete Premises. Mortgagor shall not by act or omission permit any building or other improvement on any premises not subject to the lien of this Security Instrument to rely on the Premises or any part thereof or any interest therein to fulfill any municipal or governmental requirement, and Mortgagor hereby assigns to Mortgagee any and all rights to give consent for all or any portion of the Premises or any interest therein to be so used. Similarly, no building or other improvement on the Premises shall rely on any premises not subject to the lien of this Security Instrument or any interest therein to fulfill any governmental or municipal requirement. Mortgagor shall not by act or omission impair the integrity of the Premises as a single zoning lot separate and apart from all other premises. Any act or omission by Mortgagor which would result in a violation of any of the provisions of this paragraph shall be void.
7.13. Certificates. Mortgagor and Mortgagee each will, from time to time, upon ten (10) business days’ prior written request by the other party, execute, acknowledge and deliver to the requesting party, a certificate signed by an appropriate officer, stating that this Security Instrument is unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if there have been modifications, that this Security Instrument is in full force and effect as modified and setting forth such modifications) and stating the principal amount secured hereby and the interest accrued to date on such principal amount. Such estoppel certificate from Mortgagee shall also state either that, to the actual knowledge of the signer of such certificate and based on no independent investigation, no Event of Default or occurrence which with the passage of time or the giving of notice would be or become an Event of Default exists hereunder or, if any Event of Default or such occurrence shall exist hereunder, specify such Event of Default or such occurrence of which Mortgagee has actual knowledge. The estoppel certificate from Mortgagor shall also state to the best knowledge of Mortgagor whether any offsets or defenses to the indebtedness exist and if so shall identify them.
7.14. Usury Savings. All agreements between Mortgagor and Mortgagee (including, without limitation, those contained in this Security Instrument and the Note) are expressly limited so that in no event whatsoever shall the amount paid or agreed to be paid to Mortgagee exceed the highest lawful rate of interest permissible under the laws of the State of Arkansas. If, from any circumstances whatsoever, fulfillment of any provision hereof or the Note or any other documents securing the indebtedness at the time performance of such provision shall be due, shall involve the payment of interest exceeding the highest rate of interest permitted by law which a court of competent jurisdiction may deem applicable hereto, then, ipso facto, the obligation to be fulfilled shall be reduced to the highest lawful rate of interest permissible under the laws of Arkansas; and if for any reason whatsoever Mortgagee shall ever receive as interest an amount which would be deemed unlawful, such interest shall be applied to the payment of the last maturing installment or installments of the principal indebtedness secured hereby (whether or not then due and payable) and not to the payment of interest.
7.15. Regulation U. Mortgagor covenants and agrees that it shall constitute an Event of Default hereunder if any of the proceeds of the loan for which the Note is given will be used, or were used, as the case may be, for the purpose (whether immediate, incidental or ultimate) of “purchasing” or “carrying” any “margin security” as such terms are defined in Regulation U of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (12 CFR Part 221) or for the purpose of reducing or retiring any indebtedness which was originally incurred for any such purpose.
7.16. Time is of the Essence. It is specifically agreed that time is of the essence of this Security Instrument and that no waiver of any obligation hereunder or of the obligation secured hereby shall at any time thereafter be held to be a waiver of the terms hereof or of the instrument secured hereby.
7.17. Intentionally Omitted.
7.18. ERISA. Mortgagor hereby represents, warrants and agrees that as of the date hereof, none of the investors in or owners of Mortgagor is an employee benefit plan as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 as amended, a plan as defined in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 as amended, nor an entity the assets of which are deemed to include plan assets pursuant to Department of Labor regulation Section 2510.3-101 (the “Plan Asset Regulation”). Mortgagor further represents, warrants and agrees that at all times during the term of the Note, Mortgagor shall satisfy an exception to the Plan Asset Regulation, such that the assets of Mortgagor shall not be deemed to include plan assets. If at any time during the entire term of the Note any of the investors in or owners of Mortgagor shall include a plan or entity described in the first sentence of this subsection, Mortgagor shall as soon as reasonably possible following an investment by such a plan or entity, provide Mortgagee with an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to Mortgagee indicating that the assets of Mortgagor are not deemed to include plan assets pursuant to the Plan Asset Regulation. In lieu of such an opinion, Mortgagee may in its sole discretion accept such other assurances from Mortgagor as are necessary to satisfy Mortgagee in its sole discretion that the assets of Mortgagor are not deemed to include plan assets pursuant to the Plan Asset Regulation. Mortgagor understands that the representations and warranties herein are a material inducement to Mortgagee in the making of the loan evidenced by the Note, without which Mortgagee would have been unwilling to proceed with the closing of the loan. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, any transfer permitted pursuant to the terms of this Security Instrument (including without limitation, those described in subsection 1.4) shall be subject to compliance with the provisions of this subsection. Any such proposed transfer that would violate the terms of this subsection or otherwise cause the Loan to be characterized as a prohibited transaction under ERISA shall be prohibited under the terms of the Loan Documents.
7.19. Certain Disclosures. Mortgagee (and its mortgage servicer and their respective assigns) shall have the right to disclose in confidence such financial information regarding Mortgagor, any guarantor or the Premises as may be necessary (i) to complete any sale or attempted sale of the Note or participations in the loan (or any transfer of the mortgage servicing thereof) evidenced by the Note and the Loan Documents, (ii) to service the Note or (iii) to furnish information concerning the payment status of the Note to the holder or beneficial owner thereof, including, without limitation, all Loan Documents, financial statements, projections, internal memoranda, audits, reports, payment history, appraisals and any and all other information and documentation in Mortgagee’s files (and such servicer’s files) relating to Mortgagor, any guarantor and the Premises. This authorization shall be irrevocable in favor of Mortgagee (and its mortgage servicer and their respective assigns), and Mortgagor and any guarantor waive any claims that they may have against Mortgagee, its mortgage servicer and their respective assigns or the party receiving information from Mortgagee pursuant hereto regarding disclosure of information in such files and further waive any alleged damages which they may suffer as a result of such disclosure.
7.20. Integration. This Security Instrument is intended by the parties hereto to be the final, complete and exclusive expression of the agreement between them with respect to the matters set forth herein. This Security Instrument supersedes any and all prior oral or written agreements relating to the subject matter hereof and may not be contradicted by evidence of prior, contemporaneous or subsequent oral agreements of the parties. There are no oral agreements between the parties. No modification, rescission, waiver, release or amendment of any provision of this agreement shall be made, except by a written agreement signed by the parties hereto.
7.21. No Merger. It being the desire and intention of the parties hereto that this Security Instrument and the lien hereof do not merge in fee simple title to the Premises, it is hereby understood and agreed that should Mortgagee acquire an additional or other interests in or to the Premises or the ownership thereof, then, unless a contrary intent is manifested by Mortgagee as evidenced by an express statement to that effect in appropriate document duly recorded, this Security Instrument and the lien hereof shall not merge in the fee simple title, toward the end that this Security Instrument may be foreclosed as if owned by a stranger to the fee simple title. Further, it is not the intention of the parties that any obligation of Mortgagor to pay or to reimburse Mortgagee for costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and costs, be merged in any foreclosure judgment or the conclusion of any other enforcement action, and all such obligations shall survive the entry of any foreclosure judgment or the conclusion of any other enforcement action.
7.22. Construction. Each of the parties hereto has been represented by counsel and the terms of this Security Instrument have been fully negotiated. This Security Instrument shall not be construed more strongly against any party regardless of which party may be considered to have been more responsible for its preparation.
7.23. Jurisdiction. Mortgagor hereby irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any United States federal or state court for Sebastian County, Arkansas, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Security Instrument, and irrevocably agrees that all claims in respect of such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such United States federal or state court. Mortgagor irrevocably waives any objection, including without limitation, any objection to the laying of venue or based on the grounds of forum non conveniens, that it may now or hereafter have to the bringing of any such action or proceedings in such jurisdiction. Mortgagor irrevocably consents to the service of any and all process in any such action or proceeding brought in any such court by the delivery of copies of such process to Mortgagor at its address specified for notices to be given hereunder or by certified mail directed to such address.
7.24. Waiver. THE PARTIES HERETO, AFTER CONSULTING OR HAVING HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONSULT WITH COUNSEL, KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY, AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVE, TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT THEY MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LITIGATION BASED ON OR ARISING OUT OF THIS SECURITY INSTRUMENT, OR ANY RELATED INSTRUMENT OR AGREEMENT, OR ANY OF THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR ANY COURSE OF CONDUCT, DEALING, STATEMENTS, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OR ACTION OF ANY PARTY HERETO. NO PARTY SHALL SEEK TO CONSOLIDATE BY COUNTERCLAIM OR OTHERWISE, ANY SUCH ACTION IN WHICH A JURY TRIAL HAS BEEN WAIVED WITH ANY OTHER ACTION IN WHICH A JURY TRIAL CANNOT BE OR HAS NOT BEEN WAIVED. THESE PROVISIONS SHALL NOT BE DEEMED TO HAVE BEEN MODIFIED IN ANY RESPECT OR RELINQUISHED BY ANY PARTY HERETO EXCEPT BY A WRITTEN INSTRUMENT EXECUTED BY ALL PARTIES.
Section 8. Arkansas Specific Mortgage Provisions.
8.1 Additional Indebtedness. This Security Instrument also secures, and the following shall be included within the definition of “Obligations” herein: (a) THE PAYMENT OF ALL FUTURE AND ADDITIONAL INDEBTEDNESS, DIRECT OR INDIRECT, CREATED AFTER THE DATE OF THIS SECURITY INSTRUMENT, WHICH MAY BE OWING BY MORTGAGOR TO MORTGAGEE AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO PAYMENT IN FULL WITH INTEREST OF THE NOTE (SUCH ADDITIONAL INDEBTEDNESS TO BE SECURED HEREBY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT SHALL BE PREDICATED UPON FUTURE LOANS OR ADVANCES HEREAFTER MADE BY MORTGAGEE, OR OBLIGATIONS HEREAFTER ACQUIRED BY MORTGAGEE THROUGH ASSIGNMENT, SUBROGATION OR OTHERWISE), AND IT IS AGREED THIS SECURITY INSTRUMENT SHALL STAND AS SECURITY FOR ALL SUCH FUTURE AND ADDITIONAL INDEBTEDNESS WHETHER IT BE INCURRED FOR ANY BUSINESS OR OTHER PURPOSE THAT WAS RELATED OR WHOLLY UNRELATED TO THE PURPOSES OF THE NOTE, OR WHETHER IT WAS INCURRED FOR SOME PERSONAL OR NON-BUSINESS PURPOSE, OR FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE RELATED OR UNRELATED, OR SIMILAR OR DISSIMILAR TO THE PURPOSE OF THE NOTE; and (b) all judgments, orders, awards and decrees arising from or related to any indebtedness secured hereby.
