(ii) Borrower’s right to request and the Lender’s obligation to make or permit portions of the Loans to remain outstanding past the last day of the then current Interest Periods as Eurodollar Advances, shall be immediately suspended; and

 

15


(iii) The Lender shall make a Loan as part of any requested Borrowing of Eurodollar Advances, as an ABR Advance, which such ABR Advance shall, for all other purposes, be considered part of such Borrowing.

Section 4.11 Funding Losses. Borrower shall compensate the Lender, upon its written request to Borrower (which request shall set forth the basis for requesting such amounts in reasonable detail and which request shall be made in good faith and, absent manifest error, shall be final, conclusive and binding upon all of the parties hereto), for all losses, expenses and liabilities (including, without limitation, any interest paid by the Lender to lenders of funds borrowed by it to make or carry its Eurodollar Advances, in either case to the extent not recovered by the Lender in connection with the reemployment of such funds and including loss of anticipated profits), which the Lender may sustain: (a) if for any reason (other than a default by the Lender) a borrowing of, or conversion to or continuation of, Eurodollar Advances to Borrower does not occur on the date specified therefor in a Notice of Conversion (whether or not withdrawn); (b) if any repayment (including mandatory prepayments and any conversions pursuant to Section 4.9(b)) of any Eurodollar Advances to Borrower occurs on a date which is not the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto; or (c), if, for any reason, Borrower defaults in its obligation to repay its Eurodollar Advances when required by the terms of this Agreement.

Section 4.12 Assumptions Concerning Funding of Eurodollar Advances. Calculation of all amounts payable to a Lender under this Article IV shall be made as though that Lender had actually funded its relevant Eurodollar Advances through the purchase of deposits in the relevant market bearing interest at the rate applicable to such Eurodollar Advances in an amount equal to the amount of the Eurodollar Advances and having a maturity comparable to the relevant Interest Period and, in the case of Eurodollar Advances, through the transfer of such Eurodollar Advances from an offshore office of that Lender to a domestic office of that Lender in the United States of America; provided, however, that the Lender may fund each of its Eurodollar Advances in any manner it sees fit and the foregoing assumption shall be used only for calculation of amounts payable under this Article IV.

Section 4.13 Capital Adequacy. Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, in the event that the Lender shall have determined that a Change in Law regarding Capital Adequacy not currently in effect or fully applicable as of the Closing Date, or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof after the Closing Date, or compliance by the Lender with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy not currently in effect or fully applicable as of the Closing Date (whether or not having the force of law and whether or not failure to comply therewith would be unlawful) from a Governmental Authority or body having jurisdiction, does or shall have the effect of reducing the rate of return on the Lender’s capital as a consequence of its obligations hereunder to a level below that which the Lender could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration the Lender’s policies with respect to capital adequacy by an amount deemed by the Lender to be material), then within ten Business Days after written notice and demand by the Lender, Borrower shall from time to time pay to the Lender additional amounts sufficient to compensate the Lender for such reduction (but, in the case of outstanding ABR Advances, without duplication of any amounts already recovered by the Lender by reason of an adjustment in the applicable Alternate Base Rate). Each certificate as to the amount payable under this Section 4.13 (which certificate shall set forth the basis for requesting such amounts in reasonable detail), submitted to Borrower by the Lender in good faith, shall, absent manifest error, be final, conclusive and binding for all purposes.

Section 4.14 Limitation on Certain Payment Obligations.

(a) The Lender shall make written demand on Borrower for indemnification or compensation pursuant to Section 4.7 no later than ninety (90) days after the earlier of (i) the date on which the Lender makes payment of such Taxes, and (ii) the date on which the relevant taxing authority or other governmental authority makes written demand upon the Lender for payment of such Taxes.

(b) The Lender shall make written demand on Borrower for indemnification or compensation pursuant to Sections 4.11 and 4.12 no later than ninety (90) days after the event giving rise to the claim for indemnification or compensation occurs.

 

16

(d) In the event that the Lender fails to give Borrower notice within the time limitations prescribed in (a) or (b) above, Borrower shall not have any obligation to pay such claim for compensation or indemnification. In the event that the Lender fail to give Borrower notice within the time limitation prescribed in (c) above, Borrower shall not have any obligation to pay any amount with respect to claims accruing prior to the ninetieth day preceding such written demand.

(a) No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or the other Credit Documents, nor consent to any departure by any Credit Party therefrom, shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Lender, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by the Lender, affect the rights or duties of the Lender under this Agreement or under any other Credit Document.

(b) In the event that any of the terms or provisions of the SunTrust Loan and/or any of the agreements, documents or instruments executed in connection with or in furtherance thereof are amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise altered or modified in any manner at any time (and from time to time), the Lender shall have the right (but not the obligation) to require that the Borrower amend, restate or otherwise alter or modify the terms of any of this Agreement and/or the other Credit Documents in a manner consistent with and/or at least as favorable to Lender as such amendment, restatement, alteration or modification and the Borrower hereby agrees to promptly execute and deliver (or to cause the execution and delivery by its Subsidiaries, as appropriate) any documents or instruments and take any steps necessary to effectuate any such amendment.

The rights and remedies herein expressly provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies which the Lender, would otherwise have. No notice to or demand on any Credit Party not required hereunder or under any other Credit Document in any case shall entitle any Credit Party to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances or constitute a waiver of the rights of the Lender, any other or further action in any circumstances without notice or demand.

Section 10.4 Payment of Expenses, Etc. Borrower shall:

(a) whether or not the transactions hereby contemplated are consummated, pay all reasonable, out-of-pocket costs and expenses of the Lender in the administration (both before and after the execution hereof and including reasonable expenses actually incurred relating to advice of counsel as to the rights and duties of the Lender with respect thereto) of, and in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of, preservation of rights under, enforcement of, and refinancing, renegotiation or restructuring of, this Agreement and the other Credit Documents and the documents and instruments referred to therein, and any amendment, waiver or consent relating thereto (including, without limitation, the reasonable fees actually incurred and disbursements of counsel for the Lender);

36


(c) indemnify the Lender, and its officers, directors, employees, representatives, affiliates, advisors and agents from, and hold each of them harmless against, any and all costs, losses, liabilities, claims, damages or expenses (including, without limitation, the fees, charges and disbursements of counsel or any Indemnitee (as defined below)) incurred by or asserted against any of them (whether or not any of them is designated a party thereto) (an “Indemnitee”) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of this Agreement and each other Credit Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated thereby, the performance by the parties hereto of their respective obligations thereunder or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, (ii) any Loan or the use of the proceeds therefrom, or (iii) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory and regardless of whether any Indemnitee is party thereto; provided, however, Borrower shall not be obligated to indemnify any Indemnitee for any of the foregoing arising out of such Indemnitee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct or the breach by the Indemnitee of its obligations under this Agreement;

(d) without limiting the indemnities set forth in Subsection (c) above, indemnify each Indemnitee for any and all expenses and costs (including without limitation, remedial, removal, response, abatement, cleanup, investigative, closure and monitoring costs), losses, claims (including claims for contribution or indemnity and including the cost of investigating or defending any claim and whether or not such claim is ultimately defeated, and whether such claim arose before, during or after any Credit Party’s ownership, operation, possession or control of its business, property or facilities or before, on or after the date hereof, and including also any amounts paid incidental to any compromise or settlement by the Indemnitee or Indemnitees to the holders of any such claim), lawsuits, liabilities, obligations, actions, judgments, suits, disbursements, encumbrances, liens, damages (including without limitation damages for contamination or destruction of natural resources), penalties and fines of any kind or nature whatsoever (including without limitation in all cases the reasonable fees actually incurred, other charges and disbursements of counsel in connection therewith) incurred, suffered or sustained by that Indemnitee based upon, arising under or relating to Environmental Laws based on, arising out of or relating to in whole or in part, the existence or exercise of any rights or remedies by any Indemnitee under this Agreement, any other Credit Document or any related documents (but excluding those incurred, suffered or sustained by any Indemnitee as a result of any action taken by or on behalf of the Lender with respect to any Subsidiary of Borrower (or the assets thereof) owned or controlled by the Lender). The indemnity permitted in this clause (d) shall (i) not apply as to any Indemnity to any costs or expenses in connection with any condition, suspected condition, threatened condition or alleged condition which first arises and occurs after said Indemnitee Lender succeeds to the ownership of, takes possession of or operates the business or any property of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, and (ii) in the case of cleanup, investigative, closure and monitoring costs concerning or relating to Hazardous Materials or any Environmental Laws shall only apply after an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing provided that the Credit Party is then undertaking and fulfilling all its obligations under this Agreement and Environmental Laws with respect to said cleanup, investigation, closure and monitoring.

If and to the extent that the obligations of Borrower under this Section 10.4 are unenforceable for any reason, Borrower hereby agrees to make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of such obligations which is permissible under applicable law.

Section 10.5 Right of Set-Off.

Section 10.12 Independence of Covenants. All covenants hereunder shall be given independent effect so that if a particular action or condition is not permitted by any of such covenants, the fact that it would be permitted by an exception to, or be otherwise within the limitation of, another covenant, shall not avoid the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default if such action is taken or condition exists.

Section 10.17 Construction. Should any provision of this Agreement require judicial interpretation, the parties hereto agree that the court interpreting or construing the same shall not apply a presumption that the terms hereof shall be more strictly construed against one party by reason of the rule of construction that a document is to be more strictly construed against the party who itself or through its agents prepared the same, it being agreed that Borrower, Lender and their respective agents have participated in the preparation hereof.

 

40


Section 10.18 No Incorporation into Note. This Agreement is expressly not incorporated by reference into the Note.

Section 10.19 Entire Agreement.

I absolutely love helping my clients buy their first home, sell their starters, upgrade to their next big adventure, or transition to their next phase of life. The confidence my clients have going into a transaction and through the whole process is one of the most rewarding aspects of practicing this type of law. My very first class in law school was property law, and let me tell you, this was like nothing I’d ever experienced. I remember vividly cracking open that big red book and staring at the pages not having the faintest idea what I was actually reading. Despite those initial scary moments, I grew to love property law. My obsession with real estate law was solidified when I was working in Virginia at a law firm outside DC. I ran the settlement (escrow) department and learned the ins and outs of transactions and the unique needs of the parties. My husband and I bought our first home in Virginia in 2012 and despite being an attorney, there was so much we didn’t know, especially when it came to our HOA and our mortgage. Our real estate agent was a wonderful resource for finding our home and negotiating some of the key terms, but there was something missing in the process. I’ve spent the last 10 years helping those who were in the same situation we were in better understand the process.
