Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
The description of the Loan Agreement (as defined below) set forth under Item 2.03 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.
Item 2.03
Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
Overview
As more fully described below, on May 8, 2018, Invitation Homes Inc. (the “Company”) completed a securitization transaction, in connection with which, 2018-2 IH Borrower LP, an indirect special purpose subsidiary of the Company (the “Borrower”), entered into a loan agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, as lender (the “Lender”), providing for a 7-year, floating rate loan with an initial term of 25 months and five 12-month extension options with a total principal balance of $1,057,225,000 (the “Loan”). The Loan is comprised of six components and was funded with the proceeds from the issuance of pass-through certificates representing direct or indirect beneficial ownership interests in the Loan, issued by a third-party trust entity formed to effect the transaction.
The Company used the net proceeds from the Loan to repay the balances outstanding under the mortgage loans relating to its IH 2015-1 and IH 2015-2 securitizations and to fund certain reserves. Any remaining net proceeds may be used for general corporate purposes.
The Loan is evidenced by a single componentized promissory note divided into six separate components, designated as “Component A,” “Component B,” “Component C,” “Component D,” “Component E” and “Component F” (collectively, the “Components”). The closing of the Loan occurred simultaneously with the consummation of a private offering of six classes of pass-through certificates corresponding, respectively, to the Components. The Company purchased and retained 5% of each class of such certificates for risk-retention purposes, for a total purchase price of $52,865,000.
Loan Agreement
As noted above, on May 8, 2018, the Borrower entered into the Loan Agreement with the Lender. The Loan is a 7-year, floating rate loan with an initial term of 25 months and five 12-month extension options. The Loan is comprised of six floating rate Components, for which interest expense is computed monthly for each Component individually based on a spread over one-month LIBOR ranging from 0.90% to 2.25% plus a fixed servicing and CREFC licensing fee totaling 0.0505% for each Component. As part of certain lender requirements in connection with the securitization transaction described above, the Borrower entered into an interest rate cap agreement for the initial 25-month term of the Loan in a notional amount equal to the outstanding principal balance of the Loan, with a LIBOR-based strike rate such that the debt service coverage ratio calculated as outlined in the Loan Agreement will not be less than 1.20x.
For purposes of computing, among other things, interest accrued on the Loan, the Loan is divided into six components designated as “Component A,” “Component B,” “Component C,” “Component D,” “Component E” and “Component F”. The following table shows the initial principal amount and the interest rate for each of Components A through F.

One-Month LIBOR + 2.0505%
F
$124,601,000
One-Month LIBOR + 2.3005%
The Loan is secured by first priority mortgages on a portfolio of 5,614 single-family homes operated as rental properties (collectively, the “Properties”) owned by the Borrower, as well as a first priority pledge of the equity interests of the Borrower. The initial maturity date of the Loan is June 9, 2020 (the “Initial Maturity Date”). The Borrower has the option to extend the Loan beyond the Initial Maturity Date for five successive 12-month terms, provided that there is no event of default under the Loan Agreement on each maturity date, the Borrower obtains an acceptable replacement interest rate cap agreement






and the Borrower complies with the other terms set forth in the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement requires that the Borrower comply with various affirmative and negative covenants that are customary for loans of this type, including limitations on indebtedness that the Borrower can incur, limitations on sales and dispositions of the Properties, required maintenance of specified cash reserves, and various restrictions on the use of cash generated by the operations of the Properties while the Loan is outstanding. The Loan Agreement also includes customary events of default, the occurrence of which would allow the Lender to accelerate payment of all amounts outstanding.
In connection with the Loan, Invitation Homes Operating Partnership LP (“IHOP”), the Company’s operating partnership, provided the Lender with a limited recourse guaranty agreement under which, upon the occurrence of certain specified events including customary “bad-boy” acts, breaches of specified representations, warranties and covenants and specified bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings, it would indemnify the lender against losses it incurs or, under certain circumstances, guaranty the payment in full of the Loan, not to exceed the greater of (i) the lesser of $30,000,000 and the outstanding principal balance of the Loan and all other obligations under the Loan, and (ii) twenty percent of the outstanding principal balance of the Loan, in the event that the Borrower files insolvency proceedings or violates certain covenants that result in its being substantively consolidated with any other entity that is subject to a bankruptcy proceeding.
This description of the Loan Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Loan Agreement, filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, which is incorporated herein by reference.
Securitization Transaction
Concurrent with the execution of the Loan Agreement, the Lender sold the Loan to IH Asset Receiving Limited Partnership (the “Depositor”), an indirect subsidiary of the Company, which, in turn, transferred the loan to a trust in exchange for (i) $464,424,000 principal amount of Class A pass-through certificates (the “Class A Certificates”), (ii) $135,929,000 principal amount of Class B pass-through certificates (the “Class B Certificates”), (iii) $98,171,000 principal amount of Class C pass-through certificates (the “Class C Certificates”), (iv) $60,413,000 principal amount of Class D pass-through certificates (the “Class D Certificates”), (v) $173,687,000 principal amount of Class E pass-through certificates (the “Class E Certificates”) and (vi) $124,601,000 principal amount of Class F pass-through certificates (the “Class F Certificates”, and collectively with Class A Certificates, Class B Certificates, Class C Certificates, Class D Certificates and Class E Certificates, the “Regular Certificates”) and (vii) Class R pass-through certificates (the “Class R Certificates”, and together with the Regular Certificates, the “Certificates”). The Certificates represent beneficial ownership interests in the trust and its assets, including the Loan.
The Depositor sold the Certificates, acquired by the Depositor in the manner described above, to investors in a private offering. The Regular Certificates are exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and are “exempted securities” under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. To satisfy applicable risk retention rules, IHOP purchased and retained 5% of each class of Regular Certificates totaling $52,865,000 million. The Depositor used the proceeds from the sale of the Certificates to purchase the Loan from the Lender, as described above.
Each class of Regular Certificates accrues interest at a floating rate. The table below shows the initial balance and pass-through rate for the Regular Certificates, inclusive of a fixed servicing and CREFC licensing fee totaling 0.0505% for each class of Regular Certificates. The Class R Certificates do not have a certificate balance or pass-through rate.

If such notice is given, the Components of the Loan shall be converted, from and after the first day of the next succeeding Interest Period, to an Alternative Base Rate Loan bearing interest based on the Alternative Base Rate in effect on the related Determination Date if an Alternative Base Rate then exists, as reasonably determined by Lender, or otherwise to a Prime Rate Loan bearing interest based on the Prime Rate in effect on the related Determination Date.
(c) If, pursuant to the terms hereof, the Components of the Loan have been converted to a Prime Rate Loan and Lender shall have reasonably determined that the event(s) or circumstance(s) which resulted in such conversion shall no longer be applicable, Lender shall give notice by telephone of such determination, confirmed in writing, to Borrower at least one (1) Business Day prior to the next succeeding Interest Determination Date. If such notice is given, the Components

43

 

of the Loan shall be converted, as of the first day of the next succeeding Interest Period, to a LIBOR Loan. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, in no event shall Borrower have the right to convert a Prime Rate Loan to a LIBOR Loan.

(d) If, pursuant to the terms hereof, the Components of the Loan have been converted to a Prime Rate Loan and thereafter Lender shall have reasonably determined that an Alternative Base Rate then exists, Lender shall give notice by telephone of such determination, confirmed in writing, to Borrower at least one (1) Business Day prior to the next succeeding Interest Determination Date. If such notice is given, the Components of the Loan shall be converted, as of the first day of the next succeeding Interest Period, to an Alternative Base Rate Loan bearing interest based on the Alternative Base Rate in effect on the related Determination Date. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, in no event shall Borrower have the right to convert a Prime Rate Loan to an Alternative Base Rate Loan.

(e) If the adoption of any requirement of law or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof, shall hereafter make it unlawful for Lender to maintain a LIBOR Loan as contemplated hereunder, (i) the obligation of Lender hereunder to make or maintain a LIBOR Loan or to convert a Prime Rate Loan to a LIBOR Loan shall be canceled forthwith and (ii) any outstanding LIBOR Loan shall be converted automatically to an Alternative Base Rate Loan if an Alternative Base Rate then exists, as reasonably determined by Servicer, or otherwise to a Prime Rate Loan on the first day of the next succeeding Interest Period, or upon such earlier date as may be required by law.

Lender’s notice of such costs, as certified to Borrower, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

Interest at the Default Rate shall be paid immediately upon demand, which demand may be made as frequently as Lender shall elect, to the extent not prohibited by applicable law.
2.2.3    Interest Calculation. Interest on the Loan and other Obligations shall be calculated by multiplying (A) the actual number of days elapsed in the period for which the calculation is being made by (B) a daily rate based on a three hundred sixty (360) day year (that is, the Interest Rate expressed as an annual rate divided by 360) by (C) the Outstanding Principal Balance or the amount of such other Obligations, as applicable.  The accrual period for calculating interest due on each Monthly Payment Date shall be the Interest Period in which such Monthly Payment Date occurs.

2.2.4    Usury Savings. This Agreement and the other Loan Documents are subject to the express condition that at no time shall Borrower be required to pay interest on the

44

 

Outstanding Principal Balance at a rate which could subject Lender to either civil or criminal liability as a result of being in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate. If by the terms of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, Borrower is at any time required or obligated to pay interest on the Outstanding Principal Balance at a rate in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate, the Interest Rate shall be deemed to be immediately reduced to the Maximum Legal Rate and all previous payments in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of principal and not on account of the interest due hereunder. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Lender for the use, forbearance, or detention of the sums due under the Loan, shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full stated term of the Loan until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of the Loan does not exceed the Maximum Legal Rate from time to time in effect and applicable to the Loan for so long as the Loan is outstanding.
2.2.5    Breakage Indemnity. Borrower shall indemnify Lender against any loss or expense which Lender may actually sustain or incur in liquidating or redeploying deposits from third parties acquired to effect or maintain the Loan or any part thereof as a consequence of (i) any payment or prepayment of the Loan or any portion thereof made on a date other than a Monthly Payment Date (unless interest is paid by the Borrower on such payment through the end of the applicable Interest Period) and (ii) any default in payment or prepayment of the Principal or any part thereof or interest accrued thereon, as and when due and payable (at the date thereof or otherwise, and whether by acceleration or otherwise) (collectively, “Breakage Costs”), provided, Borrower shall not indemnify Lender from any loss or expense arising from Lender’s willful misconduct or gross negligence. Lender shall deliver to Borrower a statement for any such sums which it is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section 2.2.5, which statement shall be binding and conclusive absent manifest error. Borrower’s obligations under this Section 2.2.5 are in addition to Borrower’s obligations to pay any Spread Maintenance Premium applicable to a payment or prepayment of the Loan.
Section 2.3    Loan Payments.
2.3.1    Payments.

(b)    Borrower shall defend Lender’s right, title and interest in and to the Rate Cap Collateral pledged by Borrower pursuant hereto or in which it has granted a security interest pursuant hereto against the claims and demands of all other Persons.
(c)    In the event of any downgrade, withdrawal or qualification of the rating of the Counterparty such that it ceases to qualify as an “Approved Counterparty” Borrower shall replace the Interest Rate Cap Agreement with a Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement not later than ten (10) Business Days following receipt of notice from Lender, Servicer or any other Person of such downgrade, withdrawal or qualification.
(d)    For the sake of clarity, in the event that the Loan has converted to either a Prime Rate Loan or Alternative Base Rate Loan, Borrower shall replace the Interest Rate Cap Agreement with a Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement within thirty (30) days after the commencement of the Interest Period in which the conversion becomes effective.
(e)    In the event that Borrower fails to purchase and deliver to Lender the Interest Rate Cap Agreement as and when required hereunder, Lender may purchase the Interest Rate Cap Agreement and the cost incurred by Lender in purchasing the Interest Rate Cap Agreement shall be paid by Borrower to Lender with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the date such cost was incurred by Lender until such cost is paid by Borrower to Lender.
(f)    Borrower shall not sell, assign, or otherwise dispose of, or mortgage, pledge or grant a security interest in, any of the Rate Cap Collateral or any interest therein, and any sale, assignment, mortgage, pledge or security interest whatsoever made in violation of this covenant shall be a nullity and of no force and effect, and upon demand of Lender, shall forthwith be cancelled or satisfied by an appropriate instrument in writing.
(g)    Borrower shall not (i) without the prior written consent of Lender, modify, amend or supplement the terms of the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, (ii) without the prior written consent of Lender, except in accordance with the terms of the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, cause the termination of the Interest Rate Cap Agreement prior to its stated maturity date, (iii) without the prior written consent of Lender, except as aforesaid, waive or release any obligation of the Counterparty (or any successor or substitute party to the Interest Rate Cap Agreement) under the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, (iv) without the prior written consent of Lender, consent or agree to any act or omission to act on the part of the Counterparty (or any successor or substitute party to the Interest Rate Cap Agreement) which, without such consent or agreement, would constitute a default under the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, (v) fail to exercise promptly and diligently each and every material right which it may have under the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, (vi) take or intentionally omit to take any action or intentionally suffer or permit any action to be omitted or taken, the taking or omission of which would result in any right of offset against sums payable

57

 

under the Interest Rate Cap Agreement or any defense by the Counterparty (or any successor or substitute party to the Interest Rate Cap Agreement) to payment or (vii) fail to give prompt notice to Lender of any notice of default given by or to Borrower under or with respect to the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, together with a complete copy of such notice. If Borrower shall have received written notice that the Securitization shall have occurred, no consent by Lender provided for in this Section 2.6.3(g) shall be given by Lender unless Lender shall have received a Rating Agency Confirmation.
(h)    In connection with an Interest Rate Cap Agreement, Borrower shall obtain and deliver to Lender an opinion of counsel from counsel (which counsel may be in-house counsel for the Counterparty) for the Counterparty upon which Lender and its successors and assigns may rely (the “Counterparty Opinion”), under New York law and, if the Counterparty is a non-U.S. entity, the applicable foreign law, which shall provide in relevant part, that: (i) the issuer is duly organized, validly existing, and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation and has the organizational power and authority to execute and deliver, and to perform its obligations under, the Interest Rate Cap Agreement; (ii) the execution and delivery of the Interest Rate Cap Agreement by the issuer, and any other agreement which the issuer has executed and delivered pursuant thereto, and the performance of its obligations thereunder have been and remain duly authorized by all necessary action and do not contravene any provision of its certificate of incorporation or by-laws (or equivalent organizational documents) or any law, regulation or contractual restriction binding on or affecting it or its property; (iii) all consents, authorizations and approvals required for the execution and delivery by the issuer of the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, and any other agreement which the issuer has executed and delivered pursuant thereto, and the performance of its obligations thereunder have been obtained and remain in full force and effect, all conditions thereof have been duly complied with, and no other action by, and no notice to or filing with any governmental authority or regulatory body is required for such execution, delivery or performance; and (iv) the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, and any other agreement which the issuer has executed and delivered pursuant thereto, has been duly executed and delivered by the issuer and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the issuer, enforceable against the issuer in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency and similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally, and subject, as to enforceability, to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding in equity or at law).
2.6.4    [Reserved].
2.6.5    Representations and Warranties. Borrower hereby covenants with, and represents and warrants to Lender as of the Closing Date as follows:
(a)    The Interest Rate Cap Agreement constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of Borrower, enforceable against Borrower in accordance with its terms, subject only to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency and similar laws affecting rights of creditors generally, and subject, as to enforceability, to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding in equity or at law).
(b)    The Rate Cap Collateral is free and clear of all claims or security interests of every nature whatsoever, except such as are created pursuant to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and Borrower has the right to pledge and grant a security interest in the same as

58

 

herein provided without the consent of any other Person other than any such consent that has been obtained and is in full force and effect.
(c)    The Rate Cap Collateral has been duly and validly pledged hereunder. All consents and approvals required to be obtained by Borrower for the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement have been obtained.
(d)    Giving effect to the aforesaid grant and assignment to Lender, Lender has, as of the date of this Agreement, and as to Rate Cap Collateral acquired from time to time after such date, shall have, a valid, and upon proper filing, perfected and continuing first priority lien upon and security interest in the Rate Cap Collateral; provided that no representation or warranty is made with respect to the perfected status of the security interest of Lender in the proceeds of Rate Cap Collateral consisting of “cash proceeds” or “non-cash proceeds” as defined in the UCC except if, and to the extent, the provisions of Section 9-306 of the UCC shall be complied with.
(e)    Except for financing statements filed or to be filed in favor of Lender as secured party, there are no financing statements under the UCC covering any or all of the Rate Cap Collateral and Borrower shall not, without the prior written consent of Lender, until payment in full of all of the Obligations, execute and file in any public office, any enforceable financing statement or statements covering any or all of the Rate Cap Collateral, except financing statements filed or to be filed in favor of Lender as secured party.
2.6.6    Payments. If Borrower at any time shall be entitled to receive any payments with respect to the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, Borrower shall direct Counterparty to deposit such amounts, immediately upon becoming payable to Borrower into the Collection Account; provided that if, notwithstanding such direction, Borrower receives any payments with respect to the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, Borrower shall immediately deposit such amounts into the Collection Account.
2.6.7    Remedies. Subject to the provisions of the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, if an Event of Default shall occur and then be continuing:
(a)    Lender, without obligation to resort to any other security, right or remedy granted under any other agreement or instrument, shall have the right to, in addition to all rights, powers and remedies of a secured party pursuant to the UCC, at any time and from time to time, sell, resell, assign and deliver, in its sole discretion, any or all of the Rate Cap Collateral (in one or more parcels and at the same or different times) and all right, title and interest, claim and demand therein and right of redemption thereof, at public or private sale, for cash, upon credit or for future delivery, and in connection therewith Lender may grant options and may impose reasonable conditions such as requiring any purchaser to represent that any “securities” constituting any part of the Rate Cap Collateral are being purchased for investment only, Borrower hereby waiving and releasing any and all equity or right of redemption to the fullest extent permitted by the UCC or applicable law. If all or any of the Rate Cap Collateral is sold by Lender upon credit or for future delivery, Lender shall not be liable for the failure of the purchaser to purchase or pay for the same and, in the event of any such failure, Lender may resell such Rate Cap Collateral. It is expressly agreed that Lender may exercise its rights with respect to less than all of the Rate Cap Collateral, leaving unexercised its rights with respect to the remainder of the Rate Cap Collateral, provided,

59

 

however, that such partial exercise shall in no way restrict or jeopardize Lender’s right to exercise its rights with respect to all or any other portion of the Rate Cap Collateral at a later time or times.
(b)    Lender may exercise, either by itself or by its nominee or designee, in the name of Borrower, all of Lender’s rights, powers and remedies in respect of the Rate Cap Collateral, hereunder and under law.
(c)    Borrower hereby irrevocably, in the name of Borrower or otherwise, authorizes and empowers Lender and assigns and transfers unto Lender, and constitutes and appoints Lender its true and lawful attorney-in-fact, and as its agent, irrevocably, with full power of substitution for Borrower and in the name of Borrower, (i) to exercise and enforce every right, power, remedy, authority, option and privilege of Borrower under the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, including any power to subordinate or modify the Interest Rate Cap Agreement (but not, unless an Event of Default exists and is continuing, the right to terminate or cancel the Interest Rate Cap Agreement), or to give any notices, or to take any action resulting in such subordination, termination, cancellation or modification and (ii) in order to more fully vest in Lender the rights and remedies provided for herein, to exercise all of the rights, remedies and powers granted to Lender in this Agreement, and Borrower further authorizes and empowers Lender, as Borrower’s attorney-in-fact, and as its agent, irrevocably, with full power of substitution for Borrower and in the name of Borrower, to give any authorization, to furnish any information, to make any demands, to execute any instruments and to take any and all other action on behalf of and in the name of Borrower which in the opinion of Lender may be necessary or appropriate to be given, furnished, made, exercised or taken under the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, in order to comply therewith, to perform the conditions thereof or to prevent or remedy any default by Borrower thereunder or to enforce any of the rights of Borrower thereunder. These powers-of-attorney are irrevocable and coupled with an interest, and any similar or dissimilar powers heretofore given by Borrower in respect of the Rate Cap Collateral to any other Person are hereby revoked.
(d)    Lender may, without notice to, or assent by, Borrower or any other Person (to the extent permitted by law), but without affecting any of the Obligations, in the name of Borrower or in the name of Lender, notify the Counterparty, or if applicable, any other counterparty to the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, to make payment and performance directly to Lender; extend the time of payment and performance of, compromise or settle for cash, credit or otherwise, and upon any terms and conditions, any obligations owing to Borrower, or claims of Borrower, under the Interest Rate Cap Agreement; file any claims, commence, maintain or discontinue any actions, suits or other proceedings deemed by Lender necessary or advisable for the purpose of collecting upon or enforcing the Interest Rate Cap Agreement; and execute any instrument and do all other things deemed necessary and proper by Lender to protect and preserve and realize upon the Rate Cap Collateral and the other rights contemplated hereby.
(e)    Pursuant to the powers-of-attorney provided for above, Lender may take any action and exercise and execute any instrument which it may deem necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes hereof; provided, however, that Lender shall not be permitted to take any action pursuant to said power-of-attorney that would conflict with any limitation on Lender’s rights with respect to the Rate Cap Collateral. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Lender, after the occurrence of an Event of Default, shall have the right and power to receive, endorse and collect all checks and other orders for the payment of money made payable to Borrower representing:

60

 

(i) any payment of obligations owed pursuant to the Interest Rate Cap Agreement, (ii) interest accruing on any of the Rate Cap Collateral or (iii) any other payment or distribution payable in respect of the Rate Cap Collateral or any part thereof, and for and in the name, place and stead of Borrower, to execute endorsements, assignments or other instruments of conveyance or transfer in respect of any property which is or may become a part of the Rate Cap Collateral hereunder.
(f)    Lender may exercise all of the rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC.
(g)    Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement or any of Borrower’s rights hereunder, and without waiving or releasing Borrower from any obligation or default hereunder, Lender shall have the right, but not the obligation, to perform any act or take any appropriate action, as it, in its reasonable judgment, may deem necessary to protect the security of this Agreement, to cure such Event of Default or to cause any term, covenant, condition or obligation required under this Agreement or the Interest Rate Cap Agreement to be performed or observed by Borrower to be promptly performed or observed on behalf of Borrower. All amounts advanced by, or on behalf of, Lender in exercising its rights under this Section 2.6.7(g) (including, but not limited to, reasonable legal expenses and disbursements incurred in connection therewith), together with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the date of each such advance, shall be payable by Borrower to Lender upon demand and shall be secured by this Agreement.
2.6.8    Sales of Rate Cap Collateral. No demand, advertisement or notice, all of which are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, hereby expressly waived by Borrower, shall be required in connection with any sale or other disposition of all or any part of the Rate Cap Collateral, except that Lender shall give Borrower at least thirty (30) Business Days’ prior written notice of the time and place of any public sale or of the time when and the place where any private sale or other disposition is to be made, which notice Borrower hereby agrees is reasonable, all other demands, advertisements and notices being hereby waived. To the extent permitted by law, Lender shall not be obligated to make any sale of the Rate Cap Collateral if it shall determine not to do so, regardless of the fact that notice of sale may have been given, and Lender may without notice or publication adjourn any public or private sale, and such sale may, without further notice, be made at the time and place to which the same was so adjourned. Upon each private sale of the Rate Cap Collateral of a type customarily sold in a recognized market and upon each public sale, unless prohibited by any applicable statute which cannot be waived, Lender (or its nominee or designee) may purchase any or all of the Rate Cap Collateral being sold, free and discharged from any trusts, claims, equity or right of redemption of Borrower, all of which are hereby waived and released to the extent permitted by law, and may make payment therefor by credit against any of the Obligations in lieu of cash or any other obligations. In the case of all sales of the Rate Cap Collateral, public or private, Borrower shall pay all reasonable costs and expenses of every kind for sale or delivery, including brokers’ and attorneys’ fees and disbursements and any tax imposed thereon. However, the proceeds of sale of Rate Cap Collateral shall be available to cover such costs and expenses, and, after deducting such costs and expenses from the proceeds of sale, Lender shall apply any residue to the payment of the Obligations in the order of priority as set forth in this Agreement.
2.6.9    Public Sales Not Possible. Borrower acknowledges that the terms of the Interest Rate Cap Agreement may prohibit public sales, that the Rate Cap Collateral may not be of the type appropriately sold at public sales, and that such sales may be prohibited by law. In light of these

61

 

considerations, Borrower agrees that private sales of the Rate Cap Collateral shall not be deemed to have been made in a commercially unreasonably manner by mere virtue of having been made privately.
2.6.10    Receipt of Sale Proceeds. Upon any sale of the Rate Cap Collateral by Lender hereunder (whether by virtue of the power of sale herein granted, pursuant to judicial process or otherwise), the receipt by Lender or the officer making the sale or the proceeds of such sale shall be a sufficient discharge to the purchaser or purchasers of the Rate Cap Collateral so sold, and such purchaser or purchasers shall not be obligated to see to the application of any part of the purchase money paid over to Lender or such officer or be answerable in any way for the misapplication or non-application thereof.
2.6.11    Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement. If, in connection with Borrower’s exercise of any Extension Option pursuant to Section 2.7, Borrower delivers a Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement, all the provisions of this Section 2.6 applicable to the Interest Rate Cap Agreement delivered on the Closing Date shall be applicable to the Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement.

Section 2.7    Extension Options.
2.7.1    Extension Options2.7.2    . Borrower shall have the option to extend the term of the Loan for five (5) successive terms of one year beyond the Stated Maturity Date (each successive term, an “Extension Term”). Borrower shall have the option (the “First Extension Option”), by written notice (the “First Extension Notice”) delivered to Lender (which notice may be revoked) no later than thirty (30) days prior to the Stated Maturity Date, to extend the Maturity Date to June 9, 2021 (the “First Extended Maturity Date”). In the event Borrower shall have exercised the First Extension Option, Borrower shall have the option (the “Second Extension Option”), by written notice (the “Second Extension Notice”) delivered to Lender (which notice may be revoked) no later than thirty (30) days prior to the First Extended Maturity Date, to extend the First Extended Maturity Date to June 9, 2022 (the “Second Extended Maturity Date”). In the event Borrower shall have exercised the Second Extension Option, Borrower shall have the option (the “Third Extension Option”), by written notice (the “Third Extension Notice”) delivered to Lender (which notice may be revoked) no later than thirty (30) days prior to the Second Extended Maturity Date, to extend the Second Extended Maturity Date to June 9, 2023 (the “Third Extended Maturity Date”). In the event Borrower shall have exercised the Third Extension Option, Borrower shall have the option (the “Fourth Extension Option”), by written notice (the “Fourth Extension Notice”) delivered to Lender (which notice may be revoked) no later than thirty (30) days prior to the Third Extended Maturity Date, to extend the Third Extended Maturity Date to June 9, 2024 (the “Fourth Extended Maturity Date”). In the event Borrower shall have exercised the Fourth Extension Option, Borrower shall have the option (the “Fifth Extension Option”), by written notice (the “Fifth Extension Notice”) delivered to Lender (which notice may be revoked) no later than thirty (30) days prior to the Fourth Extended Maturity Date, to extend the Fourth Extended Maturity Date to June 9, 2025 (the “Fifth Extended Maturity Date”). Borrower’s right to so extend the applicable Maturity Date shall be subject to the satisfaction of the following conditions precedent prior to each extension hereunder:

62

 

(a)    (i) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the applicable Extension Date;
(b)    Borrower shall (i) obtain and deliver to Lender not later than the first day of the term of the Loan as extended, one or more Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreements from an Approved Counterparty, in a notional amount equal to the Outstanding Principal Balance, which Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement(s) shall be (A) effective for the period commencing on the Business Day immediately following the then applicable Maturity Date (prior to giving effect to the applicable Extension Option) and ending on the last day of the Interest Period in which the applicable extended Maturity Date occurs and (B) otherwise on same terms set forth in Section 2.6 and at the applicable Strike Price and (ii) execute and deliver an Acknowledgement with respect to each such Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement;
(c)    Borrower shall deliver a Counterparty Opinion with respect to the Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement and the related Acknowledgment and shall deliver to Lender an executed Collateral Assignment of Interest Rate Protection Agreement;
(d)    All amounts due and payable by Borrower and any other Person pursuant to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents as of the Stated Maturity Date, the First Extended Maturity Date, the Second Extended Maturity Date, the Third Extended Maturity Date and the Fourth Extended Maturity Date, as applicable, and all reasonable, out-of-pocket costs and expenses of Lender, including fees and expenses of Lender’s counsel, in connection with the Loan and/or the applicable extension of the Term shall have been paid in full.
(e)    If Borrower is unable to satisfy all of the foregoing conditions within the applicable time frames for each, Lender shall have no obligation to extend the Maturity Date hereunder.
2.7.2    Extension Documentation. As soon as practicable following an extension of the Maturity Date pursuant to this Section 2.7, Borrower shall, if requested by Lender, execute and deliver an amendment of and/or restatement of the Note and shall, if requested by Lender, enter into such amendments to the related Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate to evidence the extension of the Maturity Date as provided in this Section 2.7; provided, however, that no failure by Borrower to enter into any such amendments and/or restatements shall affect the rights or obligations of Borrower or Lender with respect to the extension of the Maturity Date.

Section 2.8    Spread Maintenance Premium. Upon any repayment or prepayment of the Loan (including in connection with an acceleration of the Loan but excluding in connection with any mandatory prepayment pursuant to Section 2.4.3(a) (except where such prepayment arises as a result of a Voluntary Action) or Section 2.4.3(c)) made prior to the Spread Maintenance Date, Borrower shall pay to Lender on the date of such repayment or prepayment (or acceleration of the Loan) the Spread Maintenance Premium applicable thereto. All Spread Maintenance Premium payments hereunder shall be deemed to be earned by Lender upon the funding of the Loan.
Section 2.9    Increased Costs(a)    . If as a result of any Regulatory Change or compliance of Lender therewith, the basis of taxation of payments to Lender or any company

63

 

in Control of Lender of the principal of or interest on the Loan is changed or Lender or the company in Control of Lender shall be subject to (i) any reserve, special deposit or similar requirements relating to any extensions of credit or other assets of, or any deposits with or other liabilities, of Lender or any company in Control of Lender is imposed, modified or deemed applicable; or (ii) any other condition (other than Taxes) affecting loans to borrowers subject to LIBOR-based interest rates is imposed on Lender or any company in Control of Lender and Lender determines that, by reason thereof, the cost to Lender or any company in Control of Lender of making, maintaining or extending the Loan to Borrower is increased, or any amount receivable by Lender or any company in Control of Lender hereunder in respect of any portion of the Loan to Borrower is reduced, in each case by an amount deemed by Lender in good faith to be material (such increases in cost and reductions in amounts receivable being herein called “Increased Costs”), then Lender shall provide notice thereof to Borrower and Borrower agrees that it will pay to Lender upon Lender’s written request such additional amount or amounts as will compensate Lender or any company in Control of Lender for such Increased Costs to the extent Lender determines that such Increased Costs are allocable to the Loan. If Lender requests compensation under this Section 2.9, Lender shall, if requested by notice by Borrower to Lender, furnish to Borrower a statement setting forth the basis for requesting such compensation and the method for determining the amount thereof.
Section 2.10    Taxes.
2.10.1    Defined Terms. For purposes of this Section 2.10, the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.
2.10.2    Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of Borrower under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law. If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of Borrower) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by Borrower, then Borrower shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by Borrower shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.10) Lender receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
2.10.3    Payment of Other Taxes by Borrower. Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law any Other Taxes.
2.10.4    Indemnification by the Loan Parties. Borrower shall indemnify Lender, within 10 days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.10) payable or paid by Lender or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to Lender and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A

64

 

certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to Borrower by Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
2.10.5    Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 2.10, Borrower shall deliver to Lender the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to Lender.
2.10.6    Status of Lender.
(a)    If Lender is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document then Lender shall deliver to Borrower, at the time or times reasonably requested by Borrower, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by Borrower as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, Lender, if reasonably requested by Borrower, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by Borrower as will enable Borrower to determine whether or not Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2.10.6(b)(i), (b)(ii) and (b)(iv) below) shall not be required if in Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of Lender.
(b)    Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
(i)    If Lender is a U.S. Person it shall deliver to Borrower (in such number of copies as shall be reasonably requested by Borrower) on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrower), executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;
(ii)    If Lender is a Foreign Lender it shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to Borrower (in such number of copies as shall be reasonably requested by Borrower) on or prior to the date on which it becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrower), whichever of the following is applicable:
(A)    in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN (in the case of an individual) or W-8BEN-E (in the case of an entity) establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN (in the case of an individual) or W-8BEN-E (in the case of an entity) establishing an exemption from,

65

 

or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;
(B)    executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI;
(C)    in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) or 871(h) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit F-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN (in the case of an individual) or W-8BEN-E (in the case of an entity); or
(D)    to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN (in the case of an individual) or W-8BEN-E (in the case of an entity), a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit F-2 or Exhibit F-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit F-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;
(iii)    any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to Borrower (in such number of copies as shall be reasonably requested by Borrower) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrower), executed originals of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit Borrower to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
(iv)    if a payment made to Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), Lender shall deliver to Borrower at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by Borrower such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by Borrower as may be necessary for Borrower to comply with its obligations under FATCA and to determine that Lender has complied with Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (iv), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

66

 

Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify Borrower in writing of its legal inability to do so.
2.10.7    Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.10 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.10), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this Section 2.10.7 (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.10.7, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 2.10.7 the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This Section 2.10.7 shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
2.10.8    Survival. Each party’s obligations under this Section 2.10 shall survive any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, Lender and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.

4.3.12    HOA Opinions.
(a)    [Reserved];
(b)    On or prior to the Closing Date, Borrower shall have delivered to Lender the Closing Date HOA Opinions and the Closing Date OSN Certificate. Subject to the remainder of this subsection (b), Borrower shall deliver to Lender, within twenty (20) Business Days after June 30 and December 31 of each year commencing with the period ending December 31, 2018, one or more legal opinions (which may be in the form of a bring-down or date-down opinion with respect to an earlier delivered opinion, including, without limitation, any Closing Date HOA Opinion) from a nationally recognized law firm (or one with prominent standing in the applicable state) specifying with respect to each state in which a Property is located whether such state is an Applicable HOA State (as defined under clause (a) of the definition thereof). Any opinion required to be delivered pursuant to this Section 4.3.12(b) may be aggregated with any other opinion required to be delivered to Lender (or Servicer on behalf of Lender) so long as all the states in which Properties are located are included in such opinion or opinions and such opinion or opinions specifically reference this Agreement and otherwise meet the requirements of this Section 4.3.12(b). If, with respect to any state in which a Property is located, (i) Borrower fails to deliver to Lender an opinion pursuant to this Section 4.3.12(b), Lender may in its sole and absolute discretion designate such state an Applicable HOA State by written notice to Borrower or (ii) any opinion delivered to Lender pursuant to this Section 4.3.12(b) shall be unsatisfactory to Lender in its reasonable discretion, Lender may request in writing that Borrower obtain a second opinion from a nationally recognized law firm (or one with prominent standing in the applicable state) and deliver such opinion to Lender within twenty (20) Business Days of such written request and (1) if Borrower fails to deliver such a second opinion to Lender, Lender may in its reasonable discretion designate such state an Applicable HOA State by written notice to Borrower or (2) if any such second opinion delivered to Lender shall be unsatisfactory to Lender in its sole and absolute discretion and Lender believes in good faith that such state is an Applicable HOA State (as defined under clause (a) of the definition thereof), Lender

100

 

may designate such state an Applicable HOA State by written notice to Borrower. In addition, if Lender believes in good faith that any provisions for the subordination of Liens for HOA Fees to the Lien of the Mortgages are unenforceable under the laws of an Applicable HOA State or that such Lien for HOA Fees would be entitled to Priority, Lender may redesignate all affected HOA Properties in such Applicable HOA State as Applicable HOA Properties. On the Closing Date, Lender acknowledges based on the Closing Date HOA Opinions and the Closing Date OSN Certificate that: (i) Nevada, Georgia, South Carolina and Washington are the only Applicable HOA States and (ii) the only Applicable HOA Properties in Nevada, Georgia, South Carolina and Washington are the Properties listed on Schedule XV. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything herein to the contrary, the Lender shall not be permitted to declare a state an Applicable HOA State pursuant to this Section 4.3.12(b), if Lender or its servicer (excluding any special servicer) has received a legal opinion from a nationally recognized law firm (or one with prominent standing in the applicable state or otherwise reasonably acceptable to Lender) that if delivered by Borrower and referencing this Agreement would have resulted in such state not being declared an Applicable HOA State.
(c)    If subsequent to the Closing Date there is consummated a securitization of a single borrower single family residential rental financing similar to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and such financing contains HOA reporting and/or HOA Opinion delivery requirements and/or HOA Funds reserve requirements that are less burdensome to the borrower thereunder than those required by this Agreement (including Sections 4.3.6, 4.3.12, 4.4.11, 6.2.4, 6.2.5 and Schedule X), then subject to receipt by Borrower of a Rating Agency Confirmation, Lender at the request of Borrower shall amend this Agreement in a manner consistent with such less burdensome requirements.

During any period a Previously-Owned Property was held by any Loan Party (or any predecessor entity), such Previously Owned Property was held subject to insurance policies with coverage consistent with the requirements of this Section 5.1 (or, if less restrictive, the requirements of the corresponding provisions under the 2015-1 IH2 Loan Agreement or the 2015-2 IH2 Loan Agreement).
Section 5.2    Casualty. If one or more Properties are damaged or destroyed in whole or in part by fire or other casualty (a “Casualty”) and either (i) the aggregate loss amount is or is reasonably expected to exceed $25,000, or (ii) any damaged Property is or is reasonably expected to be rendered uninhabitable for more than thirty (30) days as a result of the Casualty, then (A) the Borrower is required to file proof of loss under the applicable Policy or Policies and (B) the Borrower shall give prompt notice of the Casualty to the Lender. Lender may, but shall not be obligated to make proof of loss if not made promptly by Borrower. In addition, Lender may participate in any settlement discussions with any insurance companies (and shall approve any final settlement) (x) if an Event of Default is continuing or (y) with respect to any Casualty in which the Net Proceeds or the costs of completing the Restoration are reasonably expected to be equal to or greater than the Casualty Threshold Amount and Borrower shall deliver to Lender all instruments required by Lender to permit such participation. Any Insurance Proceeds in connection with any Casualty (whether or not Lender elects to settle and adjust the claim or Borrower settles such claim) shall be due and payable solely to Lender and held by Lender in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. If Borrower or any party other than Lender receives any Insurance Proceeds or Condemnation Proceeds, Borrower shall immediately deliver such proceeds to Lender and shall endorse, and cause all such third parties to endorse, check payable therefor to the order of Lender. Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints Lender as its attorney-in-fact, coupled with an interest, to endorse any such check payable to the order of Lender. Borrower hereby releases Lender from any and all liability with respect to the settlement and adjustment by Lender of any claims in respect of any Casualty. Solely with respect to any HOA Property for which an HOA provides one or more property insurance policies that covers a Casualty (each an “HOA Policy”), the following additional provisions shall apply: (1) Borrower shall first make, or request the HOA to make, a claim with respect to any such Casualty under such HOA Policy or HOA Policies, (2) to the extent Borrower has any right to participate in any settlement discussions with insurance companies or approve any final settlement under the HOA Policies and the loss is greater than $25,000, Lender shall have the right to participate in any settlement discussions with any such insurance companies and to approve any final settlement to the same extent it has such rights as described above with respect to Borrower’s Policies, (3) to the extent permitted under the HOA Policies, any insurance proceeds of the HOA Policies that relate to such Casualty shall be handled and directed in the same manner as Insurance Proceeds, and (4) in the event that insurance proceeds payable with respect to such Casualty under the HOA Policies are insufficient to pay the expected costs of completing the Restoration, Borrower shall make a claim under its insurance policies maintained in accordance with Section 5.1.1.
Section 5.3    Condemnation. Borrower shall promptly give Lender notice of the actual or threatened commencement of any proceeding for the Condemnation of all or any portion of a Property and shall deliver to Lender copies of any and all papers served in connection with such proceedings.

If Borrower or any party other than Lender receives any Condemnation Proceeds, Borrower shall immediately deliver such proceeds to Lender and shall endorse, and cause all such third parties to endorse, a check payable therefore to the order of Lender. Lender shall not be limited to the interest paid on the Award by the condemning authority but shall be entitled to receive out of the Award interest at the rate or rates provided herein or in the Note. Net Proceeds from a Condemnation shall be applied as follows:
(a)    If a partial Condemnation of a Property does not interfere with the use of such Property as a residential rental property, then the Net Proceeds paid by the condemning authority shall be applied to the prepayment of the Debt in accordance with Section 2.4.3(c).
(b)    If a partial Condemnation of a Property does interfere with the use of such Property as a residential rental property or if there occurs a complete Condemnation of a Property (each, a “Fully Condemned Property”), then (i) if no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and, within thirty (30) days of the date of the occurrence of such Condemnation, Borrower delivers to Lender a written undertaking to substitute the Fully Condemned Property wi
