All proceeds payable to Lender pursuant to this subsection shall be held by Lender and shall be applied to the obligations secured by the Loan documents from time to time due and payable hereunder and under the Note and the Other Security Documents and otherwise as determined by Lender in its sole discretion; provided, however, that nothing herein contained shall be deemed to relieve Borrower of its obligations to pay the obligations secured by the Loan documents on the respective dates of payment provided for herein and in the Note and the Other Security Documents except to the extent such amounts are actually paid out of the proceeds of such business income insurance;

Borrower will deliver to Lender, promptly upon Lender’s request, evidence satisfactory to Lender that the Taxes, Other Charges and utility service charges have been so paid or are not then delinquent. Borrower shall not suffer and shall promptly cause to be paid and discharged any lien or charge whatsoever which may be or become a lien or charge against the Property. Except to the extent sums sufficient to pay all Taxes and Other Charges have been deposited with Lender in accordance with the terms of this Security Instrument, Borrower shall furnish to Lender paid receipts for the payment of the Taxes and Other Charges prior to the date the same shall become delinquent.
(b) After prior written notice to Lender, Borrower, at its own expense, may contest by appropriate legal proceeding, promptly initiated and conducted in good faith and with due diligence, the amount or validity or application in whole or in part of any of the Taxes, provided that (i) no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing under the Note, this Security Instrument or any of the Other Security Documents, (ii) Borrower is permitted to do so under the provisions of any other mortgage, deed of trust or deed to secure debt affecting the Property, (iii) such proceeding shall suspend the collection of the Taxes from Borrower and from the Property or Borrower shall have paid all of the Taxes under protest, (iv) such proceeding shall be permitted under and be conducted in accordance with the provisions of any other instrument to which Borrower is subject and shall not constitute a default thereunder, (v) neither the Property nor any part thereof or interest therein will be in danger of being sold, forfeited, terminated, cancelled or lost, and (vi) Borrower shall have deposited with Lender adequate reserves for the payment of the Taxes, together with all interest and penalties thereon, unless Borrower has paid all of the Taxes under protest, or Borrower shall have furnished the security as may be required in the proceeding, or as may be reasonably requested by Lender to insure the payment of any contested Taxes, together with all interest and penalties thereon, taking into consideration the amount in the Escrow Fund available for payment of Taxes.
Section 3.5 Escrow Fund . In addition to the initial deposits with respect to Taxes and Insurance Premiums made by Borrower to Lender on the date hereof to be held by Lender in escrow, Borrower shall pay to Lender on the first day of each calendar month (a) one-twelfth of an amount which would be sufficient to pay the Taxes payable, or estimated by Lender to be payable, during the next ensuing twelve (12) months and (b) one-twelfth of an amount which would be sufficient to pay the Insurance Premiums due for the renewal of the coverage afforded by the Policies upon the expiration thereof (the amounts in (a) and (b) above shall be called the “Escrow Fund”). Borrower agrees to notify Lender immediately of any changes to the amounts, schedules and instructions for payment of any Taxes and Insurance Premiums of which it has or obtains knowledge and authorizes Lender or its agent to obtain the bills for Taxes directly from the appropriate taxing authority. The Escrow Fund and the payments of interest or principal or both, payable pursuant to the Note shall be added together and shall be paid as an aggregate sum by Borrower to Lender. Provided there are sufficient amounts in the Escrow Fund and no Event of Default exists, Lender shall be obligated to pay the Taxes and Insurance Premiums as they become due on their respective due dates on behalf of Borrower by applying the Escrow Fund to the payments of such Taxes and Insurance Premiums required to be made by Borrower pursuant to Sections 3.3 and 3.4 hereof. If the amount of the Escrow Fund shall exceed the amounts due for Taxes and Insurance Premiums pursuant to Sections 3.3 and 3.4 hereof, Lender shall, in its discretion, return any excess to Borrower or credit such excess against future payments to be made to the Escrow Fund. In allocating such excess, Lender may deal with the person shown on the records of Lender to be the owner of the Property. If the Escrow Fund is not sufficient to pay the items set forth in (a) and (b) above, Borrower shall promptly pay to Lender, upon demand, an amount which Lender shall reasonably estimate as sufficient to make up the deficiency. The Escrow Fund shall not constitute a trust fund and may be commingled with other monies held by Lender. Unless otherwise required by Applicable Laws (defined in Section 3.11), no earnings or interest on the Escrow Fund shall be payable to Borrower. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 3.5, Borrower shall not be required to make monthly deposits into the Escrow Fund for Insurance Premiums so long as all of the insurance requirements and coverages set forth in Section 3.3 are provided pursuant to a “blanket” insurance policy.
Section 3.6 Condemnation . Borrower shall promptly give Lender notice of the actual or threatened commencement of any condemnation or eminent domain proceeding and shall deliver to Lender copies of any and all papers served in connection with such proceedings. Notwithstanding any taking by any public or quasi-public authority through eminent domain or otherwise (including but not limited to any transfer made in lieu of or in anticipation of the exercise of such taking), Borrower shall continue to pay the Debt at the time and in the manner provided for its payment in the Note and in this Security Instrument and the Debt shall not be reduced until any award or payment therefor shall have been actually received and applied by Lender, after the deduction of expenses of collection, to the reduction or discharge of the Debt. Borrower shall cause the award or payment made in any condemnation or eminent domain proceeding, which is payable to Borrower, to be paid directly to 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. Lender may apply any award or payment to the reduction or discharge of the Debt whether or not then due and payable. If the Property is sold, through foreclosure or otherwise, prior to the receipt by Lender of the award or payment, Lender shall have the right, whether or not a deficiency judgment on the Note (to the extent permitted in the Note or herein) shall have been sought, recovered or denied, to receive the award or payment, or a portion thereof sufficient to pay the Debt.
Section 3.7 Restoration After Casualty/Condemnation . In the event of a casualty or a taking by eminent domain, the following provisions shall apply in connection with the Restoration (defined below) of the Property:
(a) If the Property shall be damaged or destroyed, in whole or in part, by fire or other casualty, or if the Property or any portion thereof is taken by the power of eminent domain Borrower shall give prompt notice of such damage or taking to Lender and shall promptly commence and diligently prosecute the completion of the repair and restoration of the Property as nearly as possible to the condition the Property was in immediately prior to such fire or other casualty or taking, with such alterations as may be approved by Lender (the “Restoration”).
(b) The term “Net Proceeds” for purposes of this Section 3.7 shall mean: (i) the net amount of all insurance proceeds under the Policies carried pursuant to Subsections 3.3(a)(i), (iv), (v), (vi), (vii) and (viii) of this Security Instrument as a result of such damage or destruction, after deduction of Lender’s reasonable costs and expenses (including, but not limited to reasonable counsel fees), if any, in collecting the same, or (ii) the net amount of all awards and payments received by Lender with respect to a taking referenced in Section 3.6 of this Security Instrument, after deduction of Lender’s reasonable costs and expenses (including, but not limited to reasonable counsel fees), if any, in collecting the same, whichever the case may be. If (i) the Net Proceeds do not exceed $150,000 (the “Net Proceeds Availability Threshold”); (ii) the costs of completing the Restoration as reasonably estimated by Borrower shall be less than or equal to the Net Proceeds; (iii) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing under the Note, this Security Instrument or any of the Other Security Documents; (iv) the Property and the use thereof after the Restoration will be in compliance with, and permitted under, all applicable zoning laws, ordinances, rules and regulations (including, without limitation, all applicable Environmental Laws (defined in Section 12.1)); (v) (A) in the event that the Net Proceeds are

(c) If the Net Proceeds are greater than the Net Proceeds Availability Threshold or Borrower is not otherwise entitled to have the Net Proceeds disbursed directly to Borrower pursuant to Subsection 3.7(b), such Net Proceeds shall be forthwith paid to Lender to be held by Lender in a segregated account to be made available to Borrower for the Restoration in accordance with the provisions of this Subsection 3.7(c).

(vii) Lender shall be satisfied that, upon the completion of the Restoration, the net cash flow of the Property will be restored to a level sufficient to cover all carrying costs and operating expenses of the Property, including, without limitation, debt service on the Note and all required replacement reserves, reserves for tenant improvements and leasing commissions;
(viii) the Restoration can reasonably be completed on or before the earliest to occur of (A) six (6) months prior to the Maturity Date (as defined in the Note), (B) the earliest date required for such completion under the terms of any Major Leases (defined below) and (C) such time as may be required under applicable zoning law, ordinance, rule or regulation in order to repair and restore the Property to as nearly as possible the condition it was in immediately prior to such fire or other casualty or to such taking, as applicable; and
(ix) the Property and the use thereof after the Restoration will be in compliance with, and permitted under, all applicable zoning laws, ordinances, rules and regulations (including, without limitation, all applicable Environmental Laws (defined in Section 12.1).
(d) The Net Proceeds held by Lender until disbursed in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3.7 shall constitute additional security for the Obligations. The Net Proceeds (other than the Net Proceeds paid under the Policy described in Subsection 3.3(a)(iv) which shall be applied by Lender pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of Subsection 3.3(a)(iv)) shall be disbursed by Lender to, or as directed by, Borrower, in an amount equal to the costs actually incurred from time to time for work in place as part of the Restoration less customary retainage from time to time during the course of the Restoration, not more frequently than once per month, upon receipt of evidence satisfactory to Lender that (A) all materials installed and work and labor performed (except to the extent that they are to be paid for out of the requested disbursement) in connection with the Restoration have been paid for in full, and (B) there exist no notices of pendency, stop orders, mechanic’s or materialman’s liens or notices of intention to file same, or any other liens or encumbrances of any nature whatsoever on the Property arising out of the Restoration which have not either been fully bonded and discharged of record or in the alternative fully insured to the satisfaction of Lender by the title company insuring the lien of this Security Instrument. Final payment shall be made after submission to Lender of all licenses, permits, certificates of occupancy and other required approvals of governmental authorization having jurisdiction and Casualty Consultant’s (as defined below) certification that the Restoration has been fully completed.
(e) Lender shall have the use of the plans and specifications and all permits, licenses and approvals required or obtained in connection with the Restoration. The identity of the contractors, subcontractors and materialmen engaged in the Restoration, as well as the
contracts under which they have been engaged, shall be subject to prior review and acceptance by Lender and an independent consulting engineer selected by Lender (the “Casualty Consultant”), such acceptance not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. All costs and expenses incurred by Lender in connection with making the Net Proceeds available for the Restoration including, without limitation, reasonable counsel fees and disbursements and the Casualty Consultant’s fees, shall be paid by Borrower.
(f) If at any time the Net Proceeds or the undisbursed balance thereof shall not, in the reasonable opinion of Lender, be sufficient to pay in full the balance of the costs which are estimated by the Casualty Consultant to be incurred in connection with the completion of the Restoration, Borrower shall deposit the deficiency (the “Net Proceeds Deficiency”) with Lender before any further disbursement of the Net Proceeds shall be made. The Net Proceeds Deficiency deposited with Lender shall be held by Lender and shall be disbursed for costs actually incurred in connection with the Restoration on the same conditions applicable to the disbursement of the Net Proceeds, and until so disbursed pursuant to this Section 3.7 shall constitute additional security for the Obligations.
(g) Except upon the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, Borrower shall settle any insurance claims with respect to the Net Proceeds which in the aggregate are less than the Net Proceeds Availability Threshold. Lender shall have the right to participate in and reasonably approve any settlement for insurance claims with respect to the Net Proceeds which in the aggregate are greater than the Net Proceeds Availability Threshold. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Borrower hereby irrevocably empowers Lender, in the name of Borrower as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact, to file and prosecute such claim and to collect and to make receipt for any such payment. If the Net Proceeds are received by Borrower, such Net Proceeds shall, until the completion of the related work, be held in trust for Lender and shall be segregated from other funds of Borrower to be used to pay for the cost of the Restoration in accordance with the terms hereof.
(h) The excess, if any, of the Net Proceeds and the remaining balance, if any, of the Net Proceeds Deficiency deposited with Lender after (i) the Casualty Consultant certifies to Lender that the Restoration has been completed in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3.7, and (ii) the receipt by Lender of evidence satisfactory to Lender that all costs incurred in connection with the Restoration have been paid in full and all required permits, licenses, certificates of occupancy and other required approvals of governmental authorities having jurisdiction have been issued, shall be remitted by Lender to Borrower, provided no Event of Default shall have occurred and shall be continuing under the Note, this Security Instrument or any of the Other Security Documents.
(i) All Net Proceeds not required (i) to be made available for the Restoration or (ii) to be returned to Borrower as excess Net Proceeds pursuant to Subsection 3.7(h) shall be retained and applied by Lender toward the payment of the Debt whether or not then due and payable in such order, priority and proportions as Lender in its discretion shall deem proper or, at the discretion of Lender, the same shall be paid, either in whole or in part, to Borrower. If Lender shall receive and retain Net Proceeds, the lien of this Security Instrument shall be reduced only by the amount received and retained by Lender and actually applied by Lender in reduction of the Debt.
