What is a Mortgage Agreement?

A mortgage agreement is a contract between the lender and borrower (homebuyer) that details the terms of an individual's loan to purchase a real estate property. The borrower agrees to pay back the loan, often with interest, in monthly installments over a set time period. There are many types of mortgages available for individuals who want to purchase property or refinance their current home.

Mortgage agreements are typically provided by a bank for the homebuyer to review and sign. These agreements can be lengthy and complicated, so it is important for the borrower to review and understand all of the terms of the agreement.

To have and to hold the same unto the Mortgagee, its successors and assigns, forever.


Provided, however, that if the Mortgagor shall pay to the Mortgagee the Obligations, and if the Mortgagor and the Borrower shall keep and perform each of its other covenants, conditions and agreements set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, then, upon the termination of all obligations, duties and commitments of the Mortgagor and the Borrower under the Obligations and this Mortgage, and subject to the provisions of the Paragraph entitled “Survival; Successors and Assigns,” the estate hereby granted and conveyed shall become null and void.


This Mortgage is given for the purpose of creating a lien on real property in order to secure not only existing indebtedness, but also future advances, whether such advances are obligatory or to be made at the option of the Mortgagee, the Banks (or their affiliates), or otherwise, and whether made before or after default or maturity or other similar events, to the same extent as if such future advances were made on the date of the execution hereof, although there may be no advance made at the time of the execution hereof and although there may be no indebtedness outstanding at the time any advance is made. The types of future advances secured by and having priority under this Mortgage shall be those set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents (the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference) including (i) advances and readvances of principal, (ii) Letters of Credit, (iii) obligations under Interest Hedge Agreements, and (iv) disbursements and other advances for the payment of taxes and municipal assessments, maintenance charges, insurance premiums or costs relating to the Property, for the discharge of liens having priority over the lien of this Mortgage, for the curing of waste of the Property, for indemnification obligations regarding environmental liabilities of the Property and for the payment of service charges and expenses incurred by reason of default by the Borrower, the Mortgagee or any Guarantor and including late charges, attorneys’ fees and court costs, together with interest thereon. The lien of this Mortgage, as to third persons with or without actual knowledge thereof, shall be valid as to all such indebtedness and future advances, from the date of recordation, in accordance with the provisions of 25 Del. C. Section 2118, as the same may hereafter be amended and the laws of the state in which the Property is situated. The total amount of the indebtedness secured by this Mortgage may decrease or increase from time to time, but the total unpaid principal balance at any one time shall not exceed the maximum principal amount of the Total Commitment (as defined in the Credit Agreement). Notwithstanding the reduction of the amount(s) secured hereby at any time to zero, this Mortgage shall remain in full force and effect until such time as satisfaction is filed of record by the Mortgagee. The Mortgagor shall pay all costs of recording and satisfaction.




1. Representations and Warranties. The Mortgagor represents and warrants to the Mortgagee that the Mortgagor has good and marketable title to an estate in fee simple absolute in the Land and Improvements and has all right, title and interest in all other property constituting a part of the Property, in each case free and clear of all liens and encumbrances subject only to those matters set forth on Exhibit B hereto.1 This Mortgage is a valid and enforceable first lien on the Property (except as set forth on Exhibit B), and the Mortgagee shall, subject to the Mortgagor’s right of possession prior to an Event of Default, quietly enjoy and possess the Property. The Mortgagor shall preserve such title as it warrants herein and the validity and priority of the lien hereof and shall forever warrant and defend the same to the Mortgagee against the claims of all persons.


2. Affirmative Covenants. Until all of the Obligations shall have been fully paid, satisfied and discharged, the Mortgagor shall:


(a) Payment and Performance of Obligations. Pay or cause to be paid and perform all Obligations when due as provided in the Loan Documents.


(b) Legal Requirements. Promptly comply with and conform to all present and future laws, statutes, codes, ordinances, orders and regulations and all covenants, restrictions and conditions which may be applicable to the Mortgagor or to any of the Property except where the failure to do so will have a materially adverse effect on the Mortgagor or the Property (the “Legal Requirements”).


(c) Impositions. Before interest or penalties are due thereon and otherwise when due, the Mortgagor shall pay all taxes of every kind and nature, all charges for any easement or agreement maintained for the benefit of any of the Property, all general and special assessments (including any condominium or planned unit development assessments, if any), levies, permits, inspection and license fees, all water and sewer rents and charges, and all other charges and liens, whether of a like or different nature, imposed upon or assessed against the Mortgagor or any of the Property (the “Impositions”). The Mortgagor’s obligations to pay the Impositions shall survive the Mortgagee’s taking title to the Property through foreclosure, deed-in-lieu or otherwise.


(d) Use of Property. Use, and permit others to use, the Property, other than the Rents, only for its present use or such other uses as permitted by applicable Legal Requirements. The Mortgagor shall keep such Property in good condition and order and in an operational state of repair and will make or cause to be made, as and when necessary, all repairs, renewals, and replacements, structural and nonstructural, exterior and interior, foreseen and unforeseen, ordinary and extraordinary. The Mortgagor shall not remove, demolish or, except in the ordinary course of the Mortgagor’s business, alter the Property nor commit or suffer waste with respect thereto, nor permit the Property to become deserted or abandoned. The Mortgagor covenants and agrees not to take or permit any action with respect to the Property which will in any manner impair the security of this Mortgage.


1   Exhibit B will include easements or other encumbrances of record from the title report.




3. Leases. Except in the ordinary course of the Mortgagor’s business, the Mortgagor shall not enter into any leases, licenses or other occupancy agreements with respect to the Property or any portion thereof.


4. No Transfer. The Mortgagor shall not sell, convey, pledge, mortgage or otherwise transfer any interest in the Property or any portion thereof (whether voluntarily or by operation of law), or agree to do so, without the Mortgagee’s prior written consent, including (a) any sale, conveyance, assignment, or other transfer of (including installment land sale contracts), or the grant of a security interest in, all or any part of the legal or equitable title to the Property, excluding repairs or replacements in the ordinary course of business; (b) any lease of all or substantially all of the Property other than the lease between Mortgagee and Dover Downs Inc. dated January 14, 2002; or (c) any sale, conveyance, assignment, or other transfer of, or the grant of a security interest in, any share of stock of the Mortgagor, if a corporation or any partnership interest in the Mortgagor, if a partnership, or any membership interest, if a limited liability entity, except in favor of the Mortgagee.


5. Insurance. The Mortgagor shall keep the Property, other than the Rents, continuously insured, in an amount not less than the cost to replace such Property or an amount not less than eighty percent (80%) of the full insurable value of such Property, whichever is greater, against loss or damage by fire, with extended coverage and against other hazards as is typical for similar businesses. With respect to any property under construction or reconstruction, the Mortgagor shall maintain builder’s risk insurance. The Mortgagor shall also maintain commercial general public liability insurance, in an amount of not less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) per occurrence and Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) general aggregate per location, which includes contractual liability insurance for the Mortgagor’s obligations under the Leases, and worker’s compensation insurance. All property and builder’s risk insurance shall include protection for continuation of such income for a period of twelve (12) months, in the event of any damage caused by the perils referred to above. All policies, including policies for any amounts carried in excess of the required minimum and policies not specifically required by the Mortgagee, shall be with an insurance company or companies reasonably satisfactory to the Mortgagee, shall be in form reasonably satisfactory to the Mortgagee, shall meet all coinsurance requirements of the Mortgagee, shall be maintained in full force and effect, shall be endorsed with a standard mortgagee/loss payee clause in favor of the Mortgagee in the case of the liability insurance, and shall provide for at least thirty (30) days notice of cancellation, termination or non-renewal to the Mortgagee. Such insurance shall also name the Mortgagee, as Agent, as an additional insured under the commercial general public liability policy and the Mortgagor shall also deliver to the Mortgagee a copy of the replacement cost coverage endorsement. If the Property, other than the Rents, is located in an area which has been identified by any governmental agency, authority or body as a flood hazard area or the like, then the Mortgagor shall maintain a flood insurance policy covering such Property in an amount not less than the original principal amount of the Total Commitment or the maximum limit of coverage available under the federal program, whichever amount is less, as such other amount as shall be agreed by Mortgagee and Mortgagor.




6. Rights of Mortgagee to Insurance Proceeds. In the event of loss following the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Mortgagee shall have the exclusive right to adjust, collect and compromise all insurance claims related to the Property and the Mortgagor shall not adjust, collect or compromise any claims under said policies without the Mortgagee’s prior written consent. Each insurer is hereby authorized and directed to make payment under said policies, including return of unearned premiums, directly to the Mortgagee on and after the occurrence of an Event of Default instead of to the Mortgagor and the Mortgagee jointly, and, effective upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Mortgagor appoints the Mortgagee as the Mortgagor’s attorney-in-fact to endorse any draft therefor. Effective upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, all insurance proceeds may, at the Mortgagee’s sole option, be applied to all or any part of the Obligations and in any order (notwithstanding that such Obligations may not then otherwise be due and payable) or to the repair and restoration of any of the Property, other than the Rents, under such terms and conditions as the Mortgagee may impose.


7. Installments for Insurance, Taxes and Other Charges.

Following the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Mortgagee shall have the exclusive right to settle, adjust or compromise any such proceedings and the Mortgagor shall deliver to the Mortgagee all instruments requested by it to permit the same. Any award or compensation for property taken or for damage to property not taken, whether as a result of such proceedings or in lieu thereof, is, effective upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, hereby assigned to and shall be received and collected directly by the Mortgagee, and any award or compensation shall be applied, at the Mortgagee’s option, to any part of the Obligations and in any order (notwithstanding that any of such Obligations may not then be due and payable) or to the repair and restoration of any of the Property, other than the Rents, under such terms and conditions as the Mortgagee may impose.

        (b) The Mortgagor shall ensure, at its sole cost and expense, that the Property, other than the Rents, and the conduct of all operations and activities thereon comply and continue to comply in all material respects with all Environmental Laws. The Mortgagor shall notify the Mortgagee promptly and in reasonable detail in the event that the Mortgagor becomes aware of any material violation of any Environmental Laws, the presence or release of any Contamination with respect to such Property, or any governmental or third party claims relating to the environmental condition of such Property or the conduct of operations or activities thereon.


        (c) The Mortgagee shall not be liable for, and the Mortgagor shall indemnify, defend and hold the Mortgagee, the Banks and all of their affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents, and all of their respective successors and assigns harmless from and against all losses, costs, liabilities, damages, fines, claims, penalties and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’, consultants’ and contractors’ fees, costs incurred in the investigation, defense and settlement of claims, as well as costs incurred in connection with the investigation, remediation or monitoring of any Regulated Substances or Contamination) that the Mortgagee or any of them may suffer or incur (including as holder of the Mortgage, as mortgagee in possession or as successor in interest to the Mortgagor as owner of the Property by virtue of a foreclosure or acceptance of a deed in lieu of foreclosure) as a result of or in connection with (i) any Environmental Laws (including the assertion that any lien existing or arising pursuant to any Environmental Laws takes priority over the lien of the Mortgage); (ii) the breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or undertaking by the Mortgagor in this Section 9; (iii) the presence on or the migration of any Contamination or Regulated Substances on, under or through the Property; or (iv) any litigation or claim by the government or by any third party in connection with the environmental condition of the Property or the presence or migration of any Regulated Substances or Contamination on, under, to or from the Property.

13. Application of Proceeds. The Mortgagee shall apply the proceeds of any foreclosure sale of, or other disposition or realization upon, or Rents or profits from, the Property to satisfy the Obligations in such order of application as the Mortgagee shall determine in its exclusive discretion.




14. Mortgagee’s Right to Protect Security.

15. Appointment of Mortgagee as Attorney-in-Fact.

Such notices and other communications may be hand-delivered, sent by facsimile transmission with confirmation of delivery and a copy sent by first-class mail, or sent by nationally recognized overnight courier service, to a party’s address set forth above or to such other address as the Mortgagor or the Mortgagee may give to the other in writing for such purpose.

The Mortgagor grants to the Mortgagee, following the occurrence of an Event of Default, an irrevocable power of attorney coupled with an interest for the purpose of exercising and perfecting any and all rights and remedies available to the Mortgagee under this Mortgage, at law or in equity, including without limitation the rights and remedies described in this paragraph.




19. Changes in the Laws Regarding Taxation. If any law is enacted or adopted or amended after the date of this Mortgage which deducts the Obligations from the value of the Property for the purpose of taxation or which imposes a tax, either directly or indirectly, on the Mortgagor or the Mortgagee’s interest in the Property, the Mortgagor will pay such tax, with interest and penalties thereon, if any. If the Mortgagee determines that the payment of such tax or interest and penalties by the Mortgagor would be unlawful or taxable to the Mortgagee or unenforceable or provide the basis for a defense of usury, then the Mortgagee shall have the option, by written notice of not less than ninety (90) days, to declare the entire Obligations immediately due and payable.


20. Documentary Stamps. If at any time the United States of America, any State thereof or any subdivision of any such State shall require revenue or other stamps to be affixed to any Note or this Mortgage, or impose any other tax or charge on the same, the Mortgagor will pay for the same, with interest and penalties thereon, if any.


21. Preservation of Rights. No delay or omission on the Mortgagee’s part to exercise any right or power arising hereunder will impair any such right or power or be considered a waiver of any such right or power, nor will the Mortgagee’s action or inaction impair any such right or power. The Mortgagee’s rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies which the Mortgagee may have under other agreements, at law or in equity. The Mortgagee may exercise any one or more of its rights and remedies without regard to the adequacy of its security.

23. Changes in Writing. No modification, amendment or waiver of any provision of this Mortgage nor consent to any departure by the Mortgagor therefrom will be effective unless made in a writing signed by the Mortgagee, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. No notice to or demand on the Mortgagor in any case will entitle the Mortgagor to any other or further notice or demand in the same, similar or other circumstance.


24. Entire Agreement.

In this Mortgage, the singular includes the plural and the plural the singular; references to statutes are to be construed as including all statutory provisions consolidating, amending or replacing the statute referred to; the word “or” shall be deemed to include “and/or,” the words “including,” “includes” and “include” shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation” and references to sections or exhibits are to those of this Mortgage unless otherwise indicated. Section headings in this Mortgage are included for convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part of this Mortgage for any other purpose. If this Mortgage is executed by more than one party as Mortgagor, the obligations of such persons or entities will be joint and several.


27. Indemnity. The Mortgagor agrees to indemnify each of the Mortgagee, the Banks, their affiliates, directors, officers and employees and each legal entity, if any, who controls the Mortgagee or any such other parties (the “Indemnified Parties”) and to hold each Indemnified Party harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including all fees and charges of internal or external counsel with whom any Indemnified Party may consult and all expenses of litigation or preparation therefor) which any Indemnified Party may incur or which may be asserted against any Indemnified Party in connection with or arising out of the matters referred to in this Mortgage or in the other Loan Documents by any person, entity or governmental authority (including any person or entity claiming derivatively on behalf of the Mortgagor), whether (a) arising from or incurred in connection with any breach of a representation, warranty or covenant by the Mortgagor, or (b) arising out of or resulting from any suit, action, claim, proceeding or governmental investigation, pending or threatened, whether based on statute, regulation or order, or tort, or contract or otherwise, before any court or governmental authority, which arises out of or relates to this Mortgage, any other Loan Document, or the use of the proceeds of the Loan; provided, however, that the foregoing indemnity agreement shall not apply to claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses solely attributable to an Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

The Mortgagor may participate at its expense in the defense of any such action or claim.
