1.02 Payment of Taxes, Assessments, etc .

1.02A. Impositions . Mortgagor shall pay when due and payable, before any fine, penalty, interest or cost for the nonpayment thereof may be added thereto, and without any right of offset or credit against any interest or other amounts payable to Mortgagee pursuant to this Mortgage or on the Note, all taxes, assessments, water and sewer rents, rates and charges, transit taxes, charges for public utilities, excises, levies, vault taxes or charges, license and permit fees and other governmental charges, general and special, ordinary and extraordinary, unforeseen and foreseen, of any kind and nature whatsoever (including penalties, interest costs and charges accrued or accumulated thereon), which at any time may be assessed, levied, confirmed, imposed upon, or become due and payable out of or in respect to, or become a lien on, the Secured Property or any part thereof, or any appurtenance thereto, including amounts payable by Mortgagor under the Tax Exemption Documents (all of the foregoing collectively, “ Impositions ” and individually, an “ Imposition ”).

1.02B. Installments . Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 1.02A , if by law any Imposition, at the option of the taxpayer, may be paid in installments, and provided interest shall not accrue on the unpaid balance of such Impositions, Mortgagor may exercise the option to pay the same in installments and, in such event, shall pay such installments as the same become due and before any fine, penalty, interest or cost may be added thereto.

1.02C. Receipts . Mortgagor, upon request of Mortgagee, will furnish to Mortgagee within ten (10) days before the date when any Imposition would become delinquent, official receipts of the appropriate taxing authority, or other evidence reasonably satisfactory to Mortgagee, evidencing the payment thereof.

1.02D. Evidence of Payment . The bill, certificate or advice of nonpayment, issued by the appropriate official (designated by law either to make or issue the same or to receive payment of any Imposition) of the nonpayment of an Imposition shall be prima facie evidence that such Imposition is due and unpaid at the time of the making or issuance of such certificate, advice or bill. Mortgagor shall pay Mortgagee, on demand, all charges, costs and

 

12


expenses of every kind including each tax service search fee or charge incurred by Mortgagee at any time or times during the term of this Mortgage in connection with obtaining evidence satisfactory to Mortgagee that the payment of all Impositions is current and that there is no Imposition due and owing or which has become or given rise to a lien on the Secured Property or any part thereof or any appurtenance thereto.

1.02E. Payment by Mortgagee . If Mortgagor shall fail to pay any Imposition in accordance with the provisions of this Section 1.02 , Mortgagee, at its option and at such time as it may elect, may pay such Imposition, but shall be under no obligation to do so. Mortgagor will repay to Mortgagee, on demand, any amount so paid by Mortgagee, with interest thereon at the Increased Rate from the date of such payment by Mortgagee to the date of repayment by Mortgagor. This Mortgage shall secure each such amount and such interest.

1.02F. Change in Law . In the event of the passage after the date of this Mortgage of any law deducting the Obligations from the value of the Secured Property or any part thereof for the purpose of taxation or resulting in any lien thereon, or changing in any way the laws now in force for the taxation of this Mortgage or the Obligations for state or local purposes, or the manner of the operation of any such taxes so as to affect the interest of Mortgagee, then, and in such event, Mortgagor shall bear and pay the full amount of such taxes, provided that if for any reason payment by Mortgagor of any such new or additional taxes would be unlawful or if the payment thereof would constitute usury or render the Loan or the Obligations wholly or partially usurious under any of the terms or provisions of the Note, this Mortgage or otherwise, Mortgagee may, at its option, declare all Obligations secured by this Mortgage, with interest thereon, to be immediately due and payable, or Mortgagee may, at its option, pay that amount or portion of such taxes as renders the Loan or the Obligations unlawful or usurious, in which event Mortgagor shall concurrently therewith pay the remaining lawful and non-usurious portion or balance of such taxes.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if, and for so long as, Mortgagor is not in default pursuant to any of the Loan Instruments, Mortgagor shall have the right to contest the amount or the validity, in whole or in part, of any Imposition, by appropriate proceedings diligently conducted in good faith and without cost or expense to Mortgagee. Subject to the provisions of Section 1.02I and provided Mortgagor is in compliance with the provisions of the next sentence, Mortgagor may postpone or defer payment of such Imposition if Mortgagor, on or before the due date thereof, shall do one of the following: (1) deposit or cause to be deposited with Mortgagee a surety bond issued by a surety company of recognized responsibility acceptable to Mortgagee, guaranteeing and securing the payment in full of such Imposition, pending the determination of such contest, (2) deposit or cause to be deposited with Mortgagee an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of such Imposition or any balance thereof remaining unpaid, and from time to time, but not more frequently than quarterly, deposit amounts in order to keep on deposit at all such times an amount equal to one

 

13


hundred percent (100%) of the Imposition remaining unpaid, or (3) furnish or cause to be furnished to Mortgagee other security reasonably satisfactory to Mortgagee. If such deposit is made or such security furnished and Mortgagor continues in good faith to contest the validity of such Imposition by appropriate legal proceedings which shall operate to prevent the collection of such Imposition so contested, the imposition of interest, fines or other penalties with respect to such Imposition and the sale of the Secured Property or any part thereof to satisfy such Imposition, Mortgagor shall have no obligation to pay such Imposition until such time as it has been finally determined to be a valid, due and payable Imposition. Upon termination of any such proceeding, or at any earlier time that Mortgagor shall have been adjudicated liable for the payment of such Imposition, Mortgagor shall pay in full the amount of such Imposition or part thereof as shall have been finally determined in such proceeding, together with all liabilities in connection therewith. If Mortgagor shall fail to pay in full the amount that has been finally determined, Mortgagee shall have the full power and authority to apply or require the application of any amounts that may have been deposited pursuant to this Section 1.02H to payment of any unpaid Imposition. However, Mortgagee shall not have any liability for application of, or failure to apply, any amount so deposited, except for Mortgagee’s intentional and willful failure to apply a deposited amount after Mortgagor shall have notified Mortgagee of such final decision and Mortgagor or the Person making such deposit shall have requested in writing the application of such amount to the payment of the particular Imposition with respect to which it was deposited. Mortgagee shall repay to Mortgagor, or as directed by Mortgagor, the remainder of any such deposit after payment in full of the related Imposition, unless Mortgagor shall be in default pursuant to any of the Loan Instruments. If a default then exists, Mortgagee may, in its discretion, apply all or any part of such remainder to the curing of such default. After the curing of all such defaults (and the payment in full of all then due and payable Impositions), Mortgagee shall pay the remainder of such surplus, if any, to Mortgagor. Mortgagor may contest matters under the Tax Exemption Documents by appropriate proceedings diligently conducted in good faith and without cost or expense to Mortgagee, provided that if such matter involves any disputed payment obligation of Mortgagor under the Tax Exemption Documents, Mortgagor shall deposit the disputed amount with Mortgagee in accordance with the provisions of this Section 1.02H .

1.02I. No Lease Default . Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if contesting the validity or amount of any Imposition shall cause a breach of any of the terms, conditions or covenants required to be performed by Mortgagor as lessor under any Lease, Mortgagor shall not have the right to contest the same as provided in Section 1.02H , and Mortgagor shall pay such Imposition pursuant to Section 1.02A .

1.03A. All Risk Coverage . Mortgagor, at its sole cost and expense, shall keep the Improvements and the Personal Property insured against loss or damage by fire and against loss or damage by other risks now covered by “All Risk” insurance, in form and substance satisfactory to Mortgagee, and in an amount equal to at least one hundred percent (100%) of the full replacement cost of the Improvements and the Personal Property, including improvement work performed for tenants, without deduction for depreciation and with such other deductibles, if any, as are satisfactory to Mortgagee, in its discretion. Such insurance shall include an endorsement for demolition and increased cost of construction and an agreed amount

 

14

Mortgagor’s “All Risk” insurance policy shall not exclude from coverage any loss arising from the perils of terrorist acts or, in the alternative, Mortgagor shall maintain a separate insurance policy covering terrorist acts and, in either case, the coverage for damage caused by terrorist acts shall be on a 100% replacement cost basis with a deductible acceptable to Mortgagee (such insurance coverage shall be referred to herein as “ Terrorism Insurance ”). Mortgagor’s Terrorism Insurance coverage may be part of a blanket insurance policy provided that the blanket coverage (i) is acceptable to Mortgagee, in its discretion, (ii) contains an endorsement to the policy showing Mortgagee as a certificate holder and additional insured and (iii) contains a specific allocation of value and deductible related to the coverage on the property to be encumbered by the Mortgage and provides that such value and deductible may not be affected by any claims or other matters related to the other properties covered by the blanket policy.

1.03B. Additional Coverage . Mortgagor, at its sole cost and expense, shall at all times also maintain:

(1) Commercial general liability insurance against claims for bodily injury, personal injury or property damage, occurring in, on, under or about the Secured Property or in, on, under or about the adjoining streets, sidewalks and passageways; such insurance to be in amounts and in form and substance satisfactory to Mortgagee;

Mortgagor may, however, effect for its own account any insurance not required pursuant to the provisions of this Mortgage, but any such insurance effected by Mortgagor on the Secured Property, whether or not required pursuant to this Section 1.03 , shall be for the mutual benefit of Mortgagor and Mortgagee, as their respective interests may appear, and shall be subject to all other provisions of this Section 1.03 .

1.03E. Mortgagee’s Right to Secure Coverage . If Mortgagor fails to furnish to Mortgagee and keep in force the original policies of insurance required by this Section 1.03 , Mortgagee, at its option, may procure such insurance, which procurement, at Mortgagee’s further option, may be by the purchase of insurance policies or by the addition of the Secured Property to Mortgagee’s blanket policy. In the event that Mortgagee has exercised either of such options, promptly upon demand by Mortgagee, Mortgagor (i) will reimburse Mortgagee for all premiums on the policies purchased by Mortgagee or (ii) in the event Mortgagee has added the Secured Property to its blanket policy, will pay to Mortgagee an amount equal to the estimated cost of the insurance coverage which Mortgagee has added to its blanket policy had such coverage been obtained under a separate policy and not under a blanket policy, in either case, with interest thereon at the Increased Rate from the date Mortgagee pays such premiums to the date Mortgagor repays such premiums to Mortgagee in full. Until they are so repaid, this Mortgage shall secure the amount of such premiums and interest.

Mortgagor hereby authorizes and directs any affected insurer to make payment of the Proceeds directly to Mortgagee. Mortgagee may commingle, with other monies in Mortgagee’s possession, all Proceeds received by Mortgagee. All such Proceeds shall constitute additional security for the Obligations and Mortgagor shall not be entitled to the payment of interest thereon. So long as no Event of Default then exists, Mortgagor may settle, adjust or compromise all claims for loss, damage or destruction pursuant to any policy or policies of insurance provided that such claim does not exceed $1,000,000.00.

 

16

(4) Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to excuse Mortgagor from repairing or maintaining the Secured Property as provided in Section 1.05 or restoring all damage or destruction to the Secured Property, regardless of whether there are Proceeds available or whether the Proceeds are sufficient in amount, and the application or release by Mortgagee of any Proceeds shall not cure or waive any Event of Default or notice of default pursuant to this Mortgage or invalidate any act done pursuant to such notice.

1.03G. Transfer of Interest in Policies . In the event of the foreclosure of this Mortgage or other transfer of title or assignment of the Secured Property in payment and performance, in whole or in part, of the Obligations, all right, title and interest of Mortgagor in and to all policies of insurance required by this Section 1.03 shall inure to the benefit of, and pass to the purchaser or grantee of the Secured Property.

(e) The value, quality and condition of the Secured Property so repaired or restored shall be at least equal to that of the Secured Property prior to such damage or casualty;

(f) Mortgagor furnishes Mortgagee with evidence reasonably satisfactory to Mortgagee that all Improvements so repaired or restored and their use shall fully comply with all applicable (i) easements, covenants, conditions, restrictions or other private agreements or instruments of record affecting the Secured Property and (ii) Legal Requirements;

(g) If the estimated cost of such repair or restoration exceeds the Proceeds available, Mortgagor shall (i) furnish a bond of completion or provide other evidence satisfactory to Mortgagee of Mortgagor’s ability to pay such excess costs, or (ii) deposit with Mortgagee additional funds equal to such excess;

(h) Mortgagee shall have received written notice of damage or casualty from Mortgagor within ten (10) days after the date of such damage or casualty, which notice shall state the date of such damage or casualty, and shall contain a request to Mortgagee to make the Proceeds available to Mortgagor;

(i) Mortgagee shall have received a report or proof of claim from the insurer describing the damage or casualty and the insurer’s payment therefor;

(j) During and after the repair and restoration period, the aggregate monthly net income pursuant to rent or business income insurance and/or pursuant to all Leases remaining in full force and effect shall be in an amount sufficient to pay the monthly installments of principal and interest required to be paid on the Obligations, as well as all payments for taxes and insurance required pursuant to Section 1.04 , as estimated by Mortgagee; and

(k) the Debt Coverage Ratio is not less than 1.50.

(2) Mortgagee shall disburse the Proceeds during the course of repair or restoration upon (a) the certification of Mortgagee’s Architect as to the cost of the work done, (b) the conformity, as determined by Mortgagee, of the work to plans and specifications approved by Mortgagee, and (c) receipt of evidence of a title insurance company acceptable to Mortgagee that there are no liens arising out of the repair or restoration or otherwise.

Subject to satisfaction of the foregoing conditions, Mortgagee shall make such disbursements within ten (10) business days after a written request by Mortgagor. No payment made prior to the final completion of work shall exceed ninety percent (90%) of the value of the work performed from time to time, and at all times the undisbursed balance of the Proceeds remaining with Mortgagee must be at least sufficient to pay for the cost of completion of the work (as

(3) At its option, Mortgagee shall (a) return to Mortgagor the balance of the Proceeds after full disbursement in accordance with Sections 1.03H(1) and (2) , or (b) apply such balance to the Obligations, whether or not then due, in such order as Mortgagee shall determine.

(4) In all cases in which any destruction of the Secured Property by fire or other casualty occurs during the last twelve (12) months prior to the Maturity Date, or in Mortgagee’s judgment, Mortgagor is not proceeding with the repair or restoration in a manner that would entitle Mortgagor to have the Proceeds disbursed to it, or for any other reason Mortgagee determines in its judgment that Mortgagor shall not be entitled to the Proceeds pursuant to the terms of this Mortgage, Mortgagee shall have the options set forth in Section 1.03F(3) .

1.04 Escrow Payments . To further secure the Obligations as to payment of the Impositions (as set forth in Section 1.02 ) and premiums for insurance (as set forth in Section 1.03 ), Mortgagor will pay to Mortgagee, or its designee, on the due date of each monthly installment of principal and/or interest pursuant to the Note, a sum equal to the Impositions and insurance premiums next due on the Secured Property, all as estimated by Mortgagee, less all sums already paid with respect to the Impositions and insurance premiums for such period, divided by the number of months to elapse before one month prior to the date when such Impositions and insurance premiums shall become due and payable. Mortgagee or its designee shall hold all payments without any obligation for the payment of interest thereon to Mortgagor and free of all liens or claims on the part of creditors of Mortgagor and as a part of the Secured Property. Mortgagee or its designee shall use such payments to pay current Impositions and insurance premiums, as the same accrue and are payable. Such payments shall not be, nor be deemed to be, trust funds, but may be commingled with the general funds of Mortgagee, or its designee. If at any time and for any reason Mortgagee determines that such payments are insufficient to pay the Impositions and insurance premiums in full as they become payable, Mortgagor will pay to Mortgagee or its designee, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, such additional sum or sums as may be required in order for Mortgagee or its designee to so pay such Impositions and insurance premiums in full. Mortgagor shall furnish Mortgagee with the bills therefor within sufficient time to enable Mortgagee or its designee to pay the Impositions and insurance premiums before any penalty attaches and before any policy lapses. Upon any Event of Default in the provisions of any Loan Instrument, Mortgagee may, at its discretion and without regard to the adequacy of its security hereunder, apply any unused portion of such payments to the payment of the Obligations in such manner as it may elect. Transfer of legal title to the Secured Property shall automatically transfer to the new owner any then remaining rights of Mortgagor in all sums held by Mortgagee pursuant to this Section 1.04 .

1.05 Care and Use of the Premises .

1.05B. Standard of Repairs . The necessity for and adequacy of repairs to the Secured Property pursuant to Section 1.05A shall be measured by the standard which is appropriate for a first class office building and related facilities of similar construction and type located in the Hudson County, New Jersey area. Further, Mortgagor shall make all repairs necessary to avoid any structural damage to the Improvements and to keep the Secured Property in a proper condition for its intended use. When used in this Section 1.05 , the terms “repair” and “repairs” shall include all necessary renewals and replacements. Mortgagor shall make all repairs with new, first-class materials and in a good, substantial and workerlike manner which shall be equal or better in quality and class to the original work.

1.05C. Removal of Equipment . Mortgagor shall have the right, at any time and from time to time, to remove and dispose of equipment which may have become obsolete or unfit for use or which is no longer useful in the operation of the Secured Property. Mortgagor will promptly replace all equipment so disposed of or removed with other equipment of a value and serviceability equal to or greater than the original value and serviceability of the equipment so removed or disposed of, free of all liens, claims or other encumbrances. If by reason of technological or other developments in the operation and maintenance of buildings of the general character of the Improvements, no replacement of the building equipment so removed or disposed of is necessary or desirable in the proper operation or maintenance of the Improvements, Mortgagor shall not be required to replace same. The security interest of this Mortgage shall cover all such replacement equipment.

1.05D. Compliance With Laws and Insurance . Mortgagor shall promptly comply with any and all applicable Legal Requirements including maintaining the Secured Property in compliance with all Legal Requirements. Mortgagor shall not bring or keep any article upon the Secured Property or cause or permit any condition to exist thereon which would be prohibited by or could invalidate any insurance coverage maintained, or required hereunder to be maintained, by Mortgagor on or with respect to any part of the Secured Property. Mortgagor shall do all other acts, which from the character or use of the Secured Property may be necessary to protect the Secured Property. Upon request of Mortgagee, Mortgagor shall furnish to Mortgagee a copy of any license, permit or approval required by any Governmental Agency with respect to the Secured Property and/or the operations conducted thereon.
