GRANTOR’S AFFIRMATIVE COVENANTS

4.4 Payment of Taxes.
(a) Property Taxes . Unless Grantor is depositing money into reserves pursuant to Section 4.4(b), Grantor will (i) pay, before delinquency, all taxes and assessments, general or special, which may be levied or imposed at any time against Grantor’s interest and estate in the Property, the Chattels, or the Intangible Personalty, and (ii) within ten days after each payment of any such tax or assessment, Grantor will deliver to Beneficiary, without notice or demand, an official receipt for such payment. At Beneficiary’s option, Beneficiary may retain the services of a firm to monitor the payment of all taxes and assessments relating to the Property, the cost of which shall be borne by Grantor.
(b) Deposit for Taxes . On or before the date hereof, Grantor shall deposit with Beneficiary an amount equal to 1/12th of the amount which Beneficiary estimates will be required to make the next annual payment of taxes, assessments, and similar governmental charges referred to in this Section (collectively, the “Tax Reserves”), multiplied by the number of whole or partial months that have elapsed since the date one month prior to the most recent due date for such taxes, assessments and similar governmental charges. Thereafter, with each monthly payment under the Note, Grantor shall deposit with Beneficiary an amount equal to 1/12th of the amount which Beneficiary estimates will be required to pay the next annual payment of taxes, assessments, and similar governmental charges referred to in this Section. The purpose of these provisions is to provide Beneficiary with sufficient funds on hand to pay all such taxes, assessments, and other governmental charges thirty (30) days before the date on which they become past due. If the Beneficiary, in its sole discretion, determines that the funds reserved hereunder are, or will be, insufficient, Grantor shall upon demand pay such additional sums as Beneficiary shall determine necessary and shall pay any increased monthly charges requested by Beneficiary. Provided no Event of Default exists hereunder, Beneficiary will apply the amounts so deposited to the payment of such taxes, assessments, and other charges when due, but in no event will Beneficiary be liable for any interest on any amount so deposited, and any amount so deposited may be held and commingled with Beneficiary’s own funds. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 4.4(b), the initial Grantor named herein shall only be required to deposit Tax Reserves with Beneficiary following the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default.
(c) Intangible Taxes . If by reason of any statutory or constitutional amendment or judicial decision adopted or rendered after the date hereof, any tax, assessment, or similar charge is imposed against the Note, against Beneficiary, or against any interest of Beneficiary in any real or personal property encumbered hereby, Grantor will pay such tax,
assessment, or other charge before delinquency and will indemnify Beneficiary against all loss, expense, or diminution of income in connection therewith. In the event Grantor is unable to do so, either for economic reasons or because the legal provisions or decisions creating such tax, assessment or charge forbid Grantor from doing so, then the Note will, at Beneficiary’s option, become due and payable in full upon thirty (30) days’ notice to Grantor.
(d) Right to Contest . Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, Grantor will not be deemed to be in default solely by reason of Grantor’s failure to pay any tax, assessment or similar governmental charge so long as, in Beneficiary’s judgment, each of the following conditions is satisfied:
(i) Grantor is engaged in and diligently pursuing in good faith administrative or judicial proceedings appropriate to contest the validity or amount of such tax, assessment, or charge; and
(ii) Grantor’s payment of such tax, assessment, or charge would necessarily and materially prejudice Grantor’s prospects for success in such proceedings; and
(iii) Nonpayment of such tax, assessment, or charge will not result in the loss or forfeiture of any property encumbered hereby or any interest of Beneficiary therein; and
(iv) Grantor deposits with Beneficiary, as security for such payment which may ultimately be required, a sum equal to the amount of the disputed tax, assessment or charge plus the interest, penalties, advertising charges, and other costs which Beneficiary estimates are likely to become payable if Grantor’s contest is unsuccessful.
If Beneficiary determines that any one or more of such conditions is not satisfied or is no longer satisfied, Grantor will pay the tax, assessment, or charge in question, together with any interest and penalties thereon, within fifteen (15) days after Beneficiary gives notice of such determination.

(a) Coverages Required . Grantor shall maintain or cause to be maintained, with financially sound and reputable insurance companies or associations satisfactory to Beneficiary, all insurance required under the terms of the Insurance Agreement, and shall comply with each and every covenant and agreement contained in the Insurance Agreement. In addition, unless otherwise approved by Beneficiary, Grantor shall maintain or cause to be maintained, with financially sound and reputable insurance companies or associations satisfactory to Beneficiary, the same environmental insurance coverages, with Beneficiary named as an additional insured, as are in effect as of the date of this Deed of Trust.
Unless you provide us with evidence of insurance coverage as required by our contract or loan agreement, we may purchase
insurance at your expense to protect our interest, following written notice to you. This insurance may, but need not, also protect your interest. If the collateral becomes damaged, the coverage we purchase may not pay any claim you make or any claim made against you. You may later cancel this coverage by providing evidence that you have obtained property coverage elsewhere.
You are responsible for the cost of any insurance purchased by us. The cost of this insurance may be added to your contract or loan balance. If the cost is added to your contract or loan balance, the interest rate on the underlying contract or loan will apply to this added amount. The effective date of coverage may be the date your coverage lapsed or the date you failed to provide proof of coverage.
The coverage we purchase may be considerably more expensive than insurance you can obtain on your own and may not satisfy the need for property damage coverage or any mandatory liability insurance imposed by applicable law.
(b) Renewal Policies . Not less than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration date of each insurance policy required pursuant to the Insurance Agreement, Grantor will deliver to Beneficiary an appropriate renewal policy (or a certified copy thereof), together with evidence satisfactory to Beneficiary that the applicable premium has been prepaid.
(c) Deposit for Premiums . On or before the date hereof, Grantor shall deposit with Beneficiary an amount equal to 1/12th of the amount which Beneficiary estimates will be required to make the next annual payments of the premiums for the policies of insurance referred to in this Section (the “Insurance Reserves”), multiplied by the number of whole and partial months which have elapsed since the date one month prior to the most recent policy anniversary date for each such policy. Thereafter, with each monthly payment under the Note, Grantor will deposit an amount equal to 1/12th of the amount which Beneficiary estimates will be required to pay the next required annual premium for each insurance policy referred to in this Section. The purpose of these provisions is to provide Beneficiary with sufficient funds on hand to pay all such premiums thirty (30) days before the date on which they become past due. If Beneficiary, in its sole discretion, determines that the funds reserved hereunder are, or will be, insufficient, Grantor shall upon demand pay such additional sums as Beneficiary shall determine necessary and shall pay any increased monthly charges requested by Beneficiary. Provided no Event of Default exists hereunder, Beneficiary will apply the amounts so deposited to the payment of such insurance premiums when due, but in no event will Beneficiary be liable for any interest on any amounts so deposited, and the money so received may be held and commingled with Beneficiary’s own funds. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 4.5(c), the initial Grantor named herein shall only be required to deposit Insurance Reserves with Beneficiary following the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default.
(d) Application of Hazard Insurance Proceeds . Grantor shall promptly notify Beneficiary of any damage or casualty to all or any portion of the Property or Chattels. Beneficiary may participate in all negotiations and appear and participate in all judicial arbitration proceedings concerning any insurance proceeds which may be payable as a result of such casualty or damage, and may, in Beneficiary’s sole discretion, compromise or settle, in the name of Beneficiary, Grantor, or both any claim for any such insurance proceeds. Any such insurance proceeds shall be paid to Beneficiary and shall be applied first to reimburse Beneficiary for all costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by Beneficiary in connection with the collection of such insurance proceeds. The balance of any insurance proceeds received by Beneficiary with respect to an insured casualty may, in Beneficiary’s sole discretion, either (i) be retained and applied by Beneficiary toward payment of the Secured Obligations, or (ii) be paid over, in whole or in part and subject to such conditions as Beneficiary may impose, to Grantor to pay for repairs or replacements necessitated by the casualty; provided, however, that if all of the Secured Obligations have been performed or are discharged by the application of less than all of such insurance proceeds, then any remaining proceeds will be paid over to Grantor. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, if (A) no Default or Event of Default shall exist hereunder, and (B) the proceeds received by Beneficiary (together with any other funds delivered by Grantor to Beneficiary for such purpose) shall be sufficient, in Beneficiary’s reasonable judgment, to pay for any restoration necessitated by the casualty, and (C) the cost of such restoration shall not exceed $100,000.00, and (D) such restoration can be completed, in Beneficiary’s judgment, at least ninety (90) days prior to the maturity date of the Note, then Beneficiary shall apply such proceeds as provided in clause (ii) of the preceding sentence. Beneficiary will have no obligation to see to the proper application of any insurance proceeds paid over to Grantor, nor will any such proceeds received by Beneficiary bear interest or be subject to any other charge for the benefit of Grantor. Beneficiary may, prior to the application of insurance proceeds, commingle them with Beneficiary’s own funds and otherwise act with regard to such proceeds as Beneficiary may determine in Beneficiary’s sole discretion.
(e) Successor’s Rights . Any person who acquires title to the Property or the Chattels upon foreclosure hereunder will succeed to all of Grantor’s rights under all policies of insurance maintained pursuant to this Section.
4.6 Maintenance and Repair of Property and Chattels. Grantor will at all times maintain the Property and the Chattels in good condition and repair, will diligently prosecute the completion of any building or other improvement which is at any time in the process of construction on the Property, and will promptly repair, restore, replace, or rebuild any part of the Property or the Chattels which may be affected by any casualty or any public or private taking or injury to the Property or the Chattels. All costs and expenses arising out of the foregoing shall be paid by Grantor whether or not the proceeds of any insurance or eminent domain shall be sufficient therefor. Grantor will comply with all statutes, ordinances, and other governmental or quasi-governmental requirements and private covenants relating to the ownership, construction, use, or operation of the Property, including but not limited to any environmental or ecological requirements; provided, that so long as Grantor is not otherwise in default hereunder, Grantor may, upon providing Beneficiary with security reasonably satisfactory to Beneficiary, proceed diligently and in good faith to contest the validity or applicability of any such statute, ordinance, or requirement. Beneficiary and any person authorized by Beneficiary may enter and inspect the Property at all reasonable times, and may inspect the Chattels, wherever located, at all reasonable times.
4.7 Leases. Grantor shall timely pay and perform each of its obligations under or in connection with the Leases, and shall otherwise pay such sums and take such action as shall be necessary or required in order to maintain each of the Leases in full force and effect in accordance with its terms. Grantor shall make reasonable efforts to promptly furnish to Beneficiary copies of any notices given to Grantor by the lessee under any Lease, alleging the default by Grantor in the timely payment or performance of its obligations under such Lease and any subsequent communication related thereto. Grantor shall also promptly furnish to Beneficiary copies of any notices given to Grantor by the lessee under any Lease, extending the term of any Lease, requiring or demanding the expenditure of any sum by Grantor (or demanding the taking of any action by Grantor), or relating to any other material obligation of Grantor under such Lease and any subsequent communication related thereto. Grantor agrees that Beneficiary, in its sole discretion, may advance any sum or take any action which Beneficiary believes is necessary or required to maintain the Leases in full force and effect, and all such sums advanced by Beneficiary, together with all costs and expenses incurred by Beneficiary in connection with action taken by Beneficiary pursuant to this Section, shall be due and payable by Grantor to Beneficiary upon demand, shall bear interest until paid at the Default Rate (as defined in the Note), and shall be secured by this Deed of Trust.
4.8 Eminent Domain; Private Damage. If all or any part of the Property is taken or damaged by eminent domain or any other public or private action, Grantor will notify Beneficiary promptly of the time and place of all meetings, hearings, trials, and other proceedings relating to such action. Beneficiary may participate in all negotiations and appear and participate in all judicial or arbitration proceedings concerning any award or payment which may be due as a result of such taking or damage, and may, in Beneficiary’s reasonable discretion, compromise or settle, in the names of both Grantor and Beneficiary, any claim for any such award or payment. Any such award or payment is to be paid to Beneficiary and will be applied first to reimburse Beneficiary for all costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by Beneficiary in connection with the ascertainment and collection of such award or payment. The balance, if any, of such award or payment may, in Beneficiary’s sole discretion, either (a) be retained by Beneficiary and applied toward the Secured Obligations, or (b) be paid over, in whole or in part and subject to such conditions as Beneficiary may impose, to Grantor for the purpose of restoring, repairing, or rebuilding any part of the Property affected by the taking or damage. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, if (i) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing hereunder, and (ii) the proceeds received by Beneficiary (together with any other funds delivered by Grantor to Beneficiary for such purpose) shall be sufficient, in Beneficiary’s reasonable judgment, to pay for any restoration necessitated by the taking or damage, and (iii) the cost of such restoration shall not exceed $100,000.00, and (iv) such restoration can be completed, in Beneficiary’s judgment, at least ninety (90) days prior to the maturity date of the Note, and (v) the remaining Property shall constitute, in Beneficiary’s sole judgment, adequate security for the Secured Obligations, then Beneficiary shall apply such proceeds as provided in clause (b) of the preceding sentence. Grantor’s duty to pay the Note in accordance with its terms and to perform the other Secured Obligations will not be suspended by the pendency or discharged by the conclusion of any proceedings for the collection of any such award or payment, and any reduction in the Secured Obligations resulting from Beneficiary’s
application of any such award or payment will take effect only when Beneficiary receives such award or payment. If this Deed of Trust has been foreclosed prior to Beneficiary’s receipt of such award or payment, Beneficiary may nonetheless retain such award or payment to the extent required to reimburse Beneficiary for all costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred in connection therewith, and to discharge any deficiency remaining with respect to the Secured Obligations.
4.9 Mechanics’ Liens. Grantor will keep the Property free and clear of all liens and claims of liens by contractors, subcontractors, mechanics, laborers, materialmen, and other such persons, and will cause any recorded statement of any such lien to be released of record within thirty (30) days after the recording thereof or such earlier date as may be necessary to stop a foreclosure thereof. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, however, Grantor will not be deemed to be in default under this Section if (i) the aggregate amount of any asserted liens does not exceed $100,000.00, or (ii) to the extent such liens exceed $100,000.00, Grantor provides Beneficiary with such security as Beneficiary may require to protect Beneficiary against all loss, damage and expense which Beneficiary may incur as a result of such liens in excess of $100,000.00, which security may consist of Grantor causing such liens in excess of $100,000.00 to be bonded over or insured over. Any initiation of proceedings to foreclose on any such lien, however, shall constitute a Default.
4.10 Defense of Actions. Grantor will defend, at Grantor’s expense, any action, proceeding or claim which affects any property encumbered hereby or any interest of Beneficiary in such property or in the Secured Obligations, and will indemnify and hold Beneficiary harmless from all loss, damage, cost, or expense, including attorneys’ fees, which Beneficiary may incur in connection therewith.
4.11 Expenses of Enforcement. Grantor will pay all costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, which Beneficiary may incur in connection with any effort or action (whether or not litigation or foreclosure is involved) to enforce or defend Beneficiary’s rights and remedies under any of the Loan Documents, including but not limited to all attorneys’ fees, appraisal fees, consultants’ fees, and other expenses incurred by Beneficiary in securing title to or possession of, and realizing upon, any security for the Secured Obligations. All such costs and expenses (together with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the date incurred) shall constitute part of the Secured Obligations, and may be included in the computation of the amount owed to Beneficiary for purposes of foreclosing or otherwise enforcing this Deed of Trust.
4.12 Financial Reports. During the term of the Loan, Grantor shall supply to Beneficiary (a) within forty-five (45) days following the end of each quarter, Grantor’s quarterly and annual operating statements for the Property as of the end of and for the preceding quarter and fiscal year, as applicable, in each case prepared consistent with the form of operating statements delivered to Beneficiary by Grantor prior to the date of this Deed of Trust; (b) contemporaneously with Grantor’s delivery of each of such operating statements, a certified rent roll signed and dated by Grantor in the form delivered to Beneficiary prior to the date of this Deed of Trust; and (c) within ninety (90) days following the end of each year, an annual balance sheet and profit and loss statement of Grantor. The financial statements and reports described in (a) and (c) above shall be in the detail set forth in the financial statements delivered to Beneficiary by Grantor prior to the date of this Deed of Trust, shall be prepared in accordance
with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied, and shall be certified as true and correct by Grantor (or, if required by Beneficiary during the continuation of an Event of Default or if required to comply with regulatory requirements to which Beneficiary may be subject, by an independent certified public accountant acceptable to Beneficiary). Grantor shall also furnish to Beneficiary within forty-five (45) days of Beneficiary’s request, any other financial reports or statements of Grantor as Beneficiary may reasonably request to comply with regulatory requirements to which Beneficiary may be subject, or as requested by Beneficiary in its sole discretion during the continuation of an Event of Default. Upon Beneficiary’s demand after any Event of Default, or if Beneficiary securitizes the Loan, Grantor shall supply to Beneficiary the items required in (a) and (b) above on a monthly basis. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for so long as KBS ADP Plaza, LLC is Grantor, any request or requirement that Grantor deliver audited financials certified by an independent certified public accountant may be satisfied by delivery of the audited financials for KBS Real Estate Investment Trust, Inc.
4.13 Priority of Leases. To the extent Grantor has the right, under the terms of any Lease, to make such Lease subordinate to the lien hereof, Grantor will, at Beneficiary’s request and Grantor’s expense, take such action as may be required to effect such subordination. Conversely, Grantor will, at Beneficiary’s request and Grantor’s expense, take such action as may be necessary to subordinate the lien hereof to any future Lease designated by Beneficiary.
4.14 Inventories; Assembly of Chattels. Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default hereunder, Grantor will at Beneficiary’s request assemble the Chattels and make them available to Beneficiary at any place designated by Beneficiary which is reasonably convenient to both parties.
4.15 Compliance with Laws, Etc. Grantor shall comply in all material respects with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and orders, such compliance to include, without limitation, maintaining all Permits and paying before the same become delinquent all taxes, assessments and governmental charges imposed upon Grantor or the Property.
4.16 Records and Books of Account. Grantor shall keep accurate and complete records and books of account, in which complete entries will be made in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied, reflecting all financial transactions relating to the Property.
4.17 Inspection Rights. At any reasonable time, and from time to time, Grantor shall permit Beneficiary, or any agents or representatives thereof, to examine and make copies of and abstracts from the records and books of account of Grantor, and to visit the Property and to discuss with Grantor the affairs, finances and accounts of Grantor.
4.18 Change of Grantor’s Address or State of Organization. Grantor shall promptly notify Beneficiary if changes are made in Grantor’s address from that set forth in Section 9.10 hereof, or if Grantor shall either change its “location” (as such term is used in Section 5.8 hereof), its state of organization or if Grantor shall organize in any state other than the State of Delaware.
4.19 Further Assurances; Estoppel Certificates. Grantor will execute and deliver to Beneficiary upon demand, and pay the costs of preparation and recording thereof, any further documents which Beneficiary may request to confirm or perfect the liens and security interests created or intended to be created hereby, or to confirm or perfect any evidence of the Secured Obligations. Grantor will also, within ten days after any request by Beneficiary, deliver to Beneficiary a signed and acknowledged statement certifying to Beneficiary, or to any proposed transferee of the Secured Obligations, (a) the balance of principal, interest, and other sums then outstanding under the Note, and (b) whether Grantor claims to have any offsets or defenses with respect to the Secured Obligations and, if so, the nature of such offsets or defenses.
4.20 Costs of Closing. Grantor shall on demand pay directly or reimburse Beneficiary for any actual costs or expenses pertaining to the closing of the Loan, including, but not limited to, fees of counsel for Beneficiary, costs and expenses for which invoices were not available at the closing of the Loan, or costs and expenses which are incurred by Beneficiary after such closing, including, without limitation, costs or expenses incurred to obtain originals or copies of recorded or filed Loan Documents and UCC financing statements. All such costs and expenses (together with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the date incurred by Beneficiary) shall constitute a part of the Secured Obligations, and may be included in the computation of the amount owed to Beneficiary for purposes of foreclosing or otherwise enforcing this Deed of Trust.
4.21 Fund for Electronic Transfer. All monthly payments of principal and interest on the Note, and escrow deposits, if any, under this Deed of Trust, shall be made by Grantor by electronic funds transfer from a bank account established and maintained by Grantor for such purpose. Grantor shall establish and maintain such an account until the Note is fully paid and shall direct the depository of such account in writing to so transmit such payments on or before the respective due dates to the account of Beneficiary as shall be designated by Beneficiary in writing.
4.22 Use. Grantor shall use the Property solely for the operation of an office complex, and for no other use or purpose.
4.23 Management. The Property shall be managed by CB Richard Ellis (“Property Manager”) under a management agreement previously delivered to, and approved, by Beneficiary (the “Management Agreement”). If Grantor shall terminate or permit any amendment to or modification of the Management Agreement, or permit management of the Property by any person or entity other than Property Manager (“New Property Manager”), Grantor shall promptly provide Beneficiary with notice thereof and any such New Property Manager shall have management expertise in managing properties similar in size and type to the Property. Beneficiary hereby approves any of the following as New Property Managers: Jones Lang and PM Realty Group. Following a transfer of the Property by the initial Grantor named herein pursuant to the provisions of Section 5.4(c), below, Beneficiary’s prior written consent shall be required for (a) any termination or modification of the Management Agreement, (b) management of the Property by any person or entity other than Property Manager, and (c) any leasing agreement affecting the Property entered into by Grantor and any termination or modification of any such leasing agreement.
4.24 Secondary Market Transactions. Beneficiary shall have the right at any time: (a) to participate, syndicate or securitize all or any portion of its interest in the Loan, (b) to cause the Loan to be split into senior and one or more junior or mezzanine Loans in whatever proportion Beneficiary deems appropriate (which Loans may be secured by mortgages, deeds of trust and/or a pledge of direct or indirect partnership or membership interests in Grantor), and (c) to create one or more senior and subordinate notes (i.e., an A/B or A/B/C structure) or multiple components of such note or notes, and thereafter to sell, assign, participate, syndicate or securitize all or any part of any variant of the Loan (any of the foregoing, a “Secondary Market Transaction”). Grantor shall cooperate with Beneficiary to facilitate any Secondary Market Transaction and the rating of the Loan (or any resulting variant thereof) and of each securitization in which one or more Loans are included; provided that Grantor shall not be required to (i) incur any out-of-pocket expense in connection therewith unless Beneficiary agrees to pay for such out-of-pocket expenses as they are incurred by Grantor, (ii) agree to a modification of any Loan document, or (iii) take any actions that would impose a significant burden on Grantor, including, without limitation, requesting executives of Grantor or other executives of entities holding an interest (direct or indirect) in Grantor to participate in any form of presentation regarding the Property or the Loans. Grantor’s cooperation obligation shall continue until the Loan has been sold through a Secondary Market Transaction.
4.25 Cash Management. Following any transfer of the Property pursuant to the provisions of Section 5.4(c), below, or at any time after the closing of the Loan upon no less than thirty (30) days’ prior written notice by Beneficiary, Grantor shall establish an account (the “Clearing Account”) under the sole dominion and control of Beneficiary at a bank (the “Clearing Bank”) into which all proceeds from the Property will be deposited during the Loan term. The Clearing Bank will be selected by Grantor but must be acceptable to Beneficiary. Grantor shall be required to notify each tenant of the Property to remit all amounts due with respect to the Property directly to the Clearing Account. Unless a Cash Management Period (as defined below) is continuing, all funds deposited into the Clearing Account shall be swept by the Clearing Bank into Grantor’s operating account at the Clearing Bank. There shall be no restrictions on Grantor’s use of the operating account. During the continuance of a Cash Management Period, funds deposited into the Clearing Account shall be transferred by the Clearing Bank on a daily basis into a deposit account (the “Deposit Account”) under the sole dominion and control of the Beneficiary at a bank selected by Beneficiary (the “Deposit Bank”). All funds in the Deposit Account shall be applied as follows: (a) first, to be used to cover interest payments under the Note, (b) second, disbursed monthly to Grantor in an amount sufficient to allow Grantor to make Permitted REIT Distributions (as that term is defined in the Note), (c) third, to fund any reserves established under the terms of the Loan Documents, and (d) fourth, to pay operating expenses and capital expenses of the Property. Notwithstanding the foregoing subsections (c) and (d), during the continuance of a Cash Management Period, all amounts on deposit in the Deposit Account, after monthly payment to the Grantor of funds sufficient to allow Grantor to make Permitted REIT Distributions, shall be additional cash collateral for the Loan and applied to Grantor’s outstanding obligations under the Loan as Beneficiary may elect. A “Cash Management Period” shall commence upon the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, and shall end if the Event of Default has been cured. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein to the contrary, Grantor shall have the right under all circumstances to use proceeds from the Property first to make Permitted REIT Distributions before applying such proceeds to any debt service or reserve or other payment obligations under the Loan.
4.26 Hazardous Substances. Grantor covenants and agrees as follows:
(a) Grantor will (i) comply with all Environmental Laws applicable to the ownership or use of the Property, (ii) use its best efforts to cause all tenants and other persons occupying the Property to comply with all Environmental Laws, (iii) immediately pay or cause to be paid all costs and expenses incurred in such compliance, and (iv) keep or cause the Property to be kept free and clear of any liens imposed thereon pursuant to any Environmental Laws.
(b) Grantor will not generate, use, treat, store, Release or dispose of, or permit the generation, use, treatment, storage, Release or disposal of, any Hazardous Substances on the Property, or transport or permit the transportation of any Hazardous Substances to or from the Property, in each case in any quantity or manner which violates any Environmental Law. The foregoing to the contrary notwithstanding, (i) Grantor may store, maintain and use on the Property janitorial and maintenance supplies, paint and other Hazardous Substances of a type and in a quantity readily available for purchase by the general public and normally stored, maintained and used by owners and managers of properties of a type similar to the Property, and (ii) tenants of the Property may store, maintain and use on the Property (and, if any tenant is a retail business, hold in inventory and sell in the ordinary course of such tenant’s business) Hazardous Substances of a type and quantity readily available for purchase by the general public and normally stored, maintained and used (and, if tenant is a retail business, sold) by tenants in similar lines of business on properties similar to the Property.
(c) If Beneficiary (i) has knowledge of any pending or threatened Environmental Claim against Grantor or the Property or (ii) has reason to believe that the Grantor or the Property are in violation of any Environmental Law or (iii) receives a request for an environmental site assessment report from a re
