1.3 Required Insurance . Trustor shall at all times provide, maintain and keep in force or cause to be provided, maintained and kept in force with respect to the Trust Estate, at no expense to Trustee or Beneficiary, policies of insurance in forms and amounts and issued by companies reasonably satisfactory to Beneficiary covering such casualties, risks, perils, liabilities and other hazards as is required under the Loan Agreement. All such policies of insurance required by the terms of this Deed of Trust or the Loan Agreement shall contain an endorsement or agreement by the insurer that any loss shall be payable in accordance with the terms of such policy notwithstanding any act or negligence of Trustor or any party holding under Trustor that might otherwise result in forfeiture of said insurance and the further agreement of the insurer waiving all rights of setoff, counterclaim or deductions against Trustor.
1.4 Delivery of Policies, Payment of Premiums .
(a) At Beneficiary’s option all policies of insurance shall either have attached thereto a lender’s loss payable endorsement for the benefit of Beneficiary in form satisfactory to Beneficiary or shall name Beneficiary as an additional insured. Trustor shall furnish Beneficiary with certificates of insurance for each required policy setting forth the coverage, the limits of liability, the name of the carrier, the policy number and the period of coverage. If Beneficiary consents, Trustor may provide any of the required insurance through blanket policies carried by Trustor and covering more than one location, or by policies procured by a tenant or other party holding under Trustor; provided, however, all such policies shall meet the requirements referred to in Section 1.3 . At least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of each required policy, Trustor shall deliver to Beneficiary evidence reasonably satisfactory to Beneficiary of the payment of premium and the renewal or replacement of such policy continuing insurance in form as required by this Deed of Trust. All such policies shall contain a provision that, notwithstanding any contrary agreement between Trustor and insurance company, such policies will not be canceled, allowed to lapse without renewal, surrendered or materially amended, which term shall include any reduction in the scope or limits of coverage, without at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Beneficiary.
(b) If Trustor fails to obtain, maintain, or deliver to Beneficiary the policies of insurance with respect to the Trust Estate required by this Deed of Trust, Beneficiary may, at Beneficiary’s election, but without any obligation so to do, procure such insurance or single-interest insurance for such risks covering Beneficiary’s interest, and Trustor will pay all premiums thereon promptly upon demand by Beneficiary, and until such payment is made by Trustor, the amount of all such premiums shall bear interest at the Agreed Rate. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default and request by Beneficiary, Trustor shall deposit with Beneficiary in monthly installments, an amount equal to one-twelfth (1/12) of the estimated aggregate annual insurance premiums on all policies of insurance required by this Deed of Trust (funds deposited for this purpose are referred to as “ Insurance Impounds ”). In such event Trustor further agrees to cause all bills, statements, or other documents relating to the foregoing insurance premiums to be sent or mailed directly to Beneficiary. Upon receipt of such bills, statements, or other documents evidencing that a premium for a required policy is then payable, and provided there are sufficient Insurance Impounds, Beneficiary shall timely pay such amounts as may be due thereunder out of the Insurance Impounds. If at any time and for any reason the Insurance Impounds are or will be insufficient to pay such amounts as may be then or subsequently due, Beneficiary shall notify Trustor and Trustor shall immediately deposit an amount equal to such deficiency with Beneficiary. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contained herein shall cause Beneficiary to be deemed a trustee of Insurance Impounds or to be obligated to pay any amounts in excess of the amount of the Insurance Impounds, nor shall anything contained herein modify the obligation of Trustor set forth in Section 1.3 to obtain and maintain insurance. Beneficiary may commingle Insurance Impounds with its own funds, and Trustor shall not be entitled to interest thereon. Beneficiary may reserve for future payments of premiums such portion of Insurance Impounds as Beneficiary in its absolute and sole discretion deems proper. If Trustor fails to deposit with Beneficiary sums sufficient to pay fully such premiums at least thirty (30) days before delinquency thereof, Beneficiary may, at Beneficiary’s election, but without any obligation so to do, advance any amounts required to make up the deficiency, which advances, if any, shall be secured hereby and shall be repayable to Beneficiary upon demand with interest from the date advanced at the Agreed Rate, or at the option of Beneficiary the latter may, without making any advance whatever, apply any Insurance Impounds to payment of the Obligations in such order as Beneficiary may determine, notwithstanding that such Obligations may not yet be due. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Beneficiary may, at any time, at Beneficiary’s option, apply any Insurance Impounds or Impositions Impounds under this Section 1.4 or Section 1.8 , any funds paid as Rents, and any other funds of Trustor held by Beneficiary to payment of any of the Obligations, in such manner and order as Beneficiary may elect, notwithstanding that such Obligations may not yet be due.
1.5 Casualties; Insurance Proceeds.
(a) Trustor shall give prompt written notice thereof to Beneficiary after the happening of any casualty to or in connection with the Trust Estate or any part thereof, whether or not covered by insurance. All of Trustor’s rights to receive any proceeds of insurance are hereby assigned to Beneficiary, and Trustor hereby authorizes and directs any affected insurance company to make payment of such proceeds directly to Beneficiary. If Trustor receives any proceeds of insurance resulting from such casualty, Trustor shall promptly pay over such proceeds to Beneficiary. Except as provided in Section 1.4 hereof, all proceeds of insurance will be applied by Beneficiary to payment of the Obligations in such order as Beneficiary shall determine.
(b) Trustor shall not be excused from repairing or maintaining the Trust Estate as provided in Section 1.2 hereof or restoring all damage or destruction to the Trust Estate, regardless of whether or not there are insurance proceeds available to Trustor or whether any such proceeds are sufficient in amount, and the application or release by Beneficiary of any insurance proceeds shall not cure or waive any default or notice of default under this Deed of Trust or invalidate any act done pursuant to such default or notice of default.
1.6 Assignment of Policies Upon Foreclosure . In the event of foreclosure of this Deed of Trust as a mortgage, a sale under the power of sale, or any other transfer of title or assignment of the Trust Estate in extinguishment, in whole or in part, of the Obligations, all right, title and interest of Trustor in and to all policies of insurance required by Section 1.3 shall inure to the benefit of and pass to the successor in interest to Trustor or the purchaser or grantee of the Trust Estate, to the extent such policies are assignable pursuant to the terms thereof.

Except as expressly provided herein, Trustor waives all rights now or hereafter conferred by statute or otherwise to any abatement, suspension, deferment, diminution or reduction of any sum secured hereby and payable by Trustor. “ Person ” means any natural person, any unincorporated association, any corporation, any partnership, any joint venture, limited liability company, limited liability partnership, any trust, any other legal entity, or any governmental authority (federal, state, local or foreign).

(b) If at any time after the date hereof there shall be assessed or imposed a fee, tax, or assessment on Beneficiary which is measured by or based in whole or in part upon this Deed of Trust or the outstanding amount of the Obligations, then all such taxes, assessments or fees shall be deemed to be included within the term “Impositions” as defined in Section 1.8(a) and Trustor shall pay and discharge the same as herein provided with respect to the payment of Impositions. If Trustor fails to pay such Impositions prior to delinquency, Beneficiary may, at its option, declare all or part of the Obligations, immediately due and payable. If Trustor is prohibited by law from paying such Impositions, Beneficiary may, at its option, declare all or part of the Obligations due and payable on a date which is not less than six (6) months from the date such prohibition is imposed on Trustor.
(c) Subject to the provisions of Section 1.8(d) and upon request by Beneficiary, Trustor shall deliver to Beneficiary within thirty (30) days after the date upon which any Imposition is due and payable by Trustor official receipts of the appropriate taxing authority, or other proof satisfactory to Beneficiary, evidencing the payment thereof.
(d) Trustor shall have the right before any delinquency occurs to contest or object to the amount or validity of any Imposition by appropriate proceedings, but this shall not be deemed or construed in any way as relieving, modifying, or extending Trustor’s covenant to pay any such Imposition at the time and in the manner provided in this Section 1.8 , unless Trustor has given prior written notice to Beneficiary of Trustor’s intent to so contest or object to an Imposition, and unless, in Beneficiary’s absolute and sole discretion, (i) Trustor shall demonstrate to Beneficiary’s satisfaction that the proceedings to be initiated by Trustor shall conclusively operate to prevent the sale of the Trust Estate or any part thereof or interest therein to satisfy such Imposition prior to final determination of such proceedings, (ii) Trustor shall furnish a good and sufficient bond or surety as requested by and satisfactory to Beneficiary, or (iii) Trustor shall demonstrate to Beneficiary’s satisfaction that Trustor has provided a good and sufficient undertaking as may be required or permitted by law to accomplish a stay of any such sale.
(e) Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default and upon request by Beneficiary, Trustor shall pay to Beneficiary an initial cash deposit in an amount adequate to pay all Impositions for the ensuing tax fiscal year and shall thereafter continue to deposit with Beneficiary, in monthly installments, an amount equal to one-twelfth (1/12) of the sum of the annual Impositions reasonably estimated by Beneficiary, for the purpose of paying the installment of Impositions next due (funds deposited for this purpose are referred to as “ Impositions Impounds ”). In such event, Trustor further agrees to cause all bills, statements, or other documents relating to Impositions to be sent or mailed directly to Beneficiary. Upon receipt of such bills, statements, or other documents, and providing there are sufficient Impositions Impounds, Beneficiary shall timely pay such amounts as may be due thereunder out of the Impositions Impounds. If at any time and for any reason the Impositions Impounds are or will be insufficient to pay such amounts as may then or subsequently be due, Beneficiary may notify Trustor and upon such notice Trustor shall deposit immediately an amount equal to such deficiency with Beneficiary. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contained herein shall cause Beneficiary to be deemed a trustee of Impositions Impounds or to be obligated to pay any amounts in excess of the amount of funds deposited with Beneficiary pursuant to this Section 1.8(e) Beneficiary may commingle Impositions Impounds with its own funds and shall not be obligated to pay any interest on any Impositions Impounds. Beneficiary may reserve for future payment of Impositions such portion of Impositions Impounds as Beneficiary may in its absolute and sole discretion deem proper. If Trustor fails to deposit with Beneficiary sums sufficient to fully pay such Impositions at least thirty (30) days before delinquency thereof, Beneficiary may, at Beneficiary’s election, but without any obligation so to do, advance any amounts required to make up the deficiency, which advances, if any, shall be secured hereby and shall be repayable to Beneficiary upon demand together with interest thereon at the Agreed Rate from the date of such advance, or at the option of Beneficiary the latter may, without making any advance whatever, apply any Impositions Impounds held by it upon any of the Obligations in such order as Beneficiary may determine, notwithstanding that such Obligations may not yet be due.
