(a)

As provided herein, the Trustee shall elect that the Trust Estate (exclusive of the assets held in the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund and the Cap Agreement Reserve Fund) be treated for federal income tax purposes as comprising two real estate mortgage investment conduits (each a “REMIC” or, in the alternative, the “Subsidiary REMIC” and the “Master REMIC”).  Each Certificate, other than the Class R Certificate, represents ownership of a regular interest in the Master REMIC for purposes of the REMIC Provisions.  Each Certificate, other than the Class X-IO Certificates, also represents rights with respect to payments to be made from the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund as further described in Section 7.04 of this Agreement.  The Class X-IO Certificates also evidence ownership of the assets held from time to time in the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund, as further described in Section 7.04 hereof.  The Class R Certificate represents ownership of the sole class of residual interest in each of the Subsidiary REMIC, and the Master REMIC for purposes of the REMIC Provisions.

(b)

The Master REMIC shall hold as its assets the several classes of uncertificated Subsidiary REMIC Interests, other than the LT-R Interest, and each such Subsidiary REMIC Interest (other than the LT-R Interest) is hereby designated as a regular interest in the Subsidiary REMIC for purposes of the REMIC Provisions.  The Subsidiary REMIC shall hold as its assets the Home Equity Loans and all collections and accounts related thereto, other than the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund and the Cap Agreement Reserve Fund.

(c)

For purposes of the REMIC Provisions, the latest possible maturity date for each regular interest in each REMIC created hereby is the Latest Possible Maturity Date.

The LT-R Interest shall have no principal balance and no interest rate and shall be entitled to only those distributable assets, if any, remaining in the Subsidiary REMIC on each Distribution Date after all amounts required to be distributed to the remaining Subsidiary REMIC Interests and applicable Trust expenses have been paid.  It is expected that there will not be any distributions on the LT-R Interest.

On each Distribution Date, all principal payments received (or advances) and any Realized Losses with respect to the Home Equity Loans (plus accrued interest on the LT-Excess Interest to the extent necessary) shall be allocated and applied in reduction of the principal balances of the Subsidiary REMIC Interests such that following such allocation and distribution:

(iii)

the principal balance of each of the LT-Grp IIA and LT-Grp IIB Interests equals 25% of the aggregate of the principal balances of the Group II Home Equity Loans as of the beginning of the Remittance Period related to the next Distribution Date; and

(iv)

the principal balance of the LT-Excess Interest equals the excess of the aggregate of the principal balances of the Home Equity Loans as of the opening of business on the first Business Day of the Remittance Period related to the next Distribution Date over the aggregate of the principal balances of the remaining Subsidiary REMIC Interests as reduced on such Distribution Date.

It is understood and agreed that the representations, warranties and covenants set forth in this Section 3.04 shall survive delivery of the respective Home Equity Loans (including Qualified Replacement Mortgages) to the Trustee or the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee.

(e)

The Trustee shall have no duty to conduct any affirmative investigation other than as specifically set forth in this Agreement as to the occurrence of any condition requiring the repurchase or substitution of any Home Equity Loan pursuant to this Article III or the eligibility of any Home Equity Loan for the purpose of this Agreement.

Section 3.05.

Sale Treatment of the Home Equity Loans and Qualified Replacement Mortgages.

(a)

The transfer by the Seller and the Conduit Seller to the Depositor and by the Depositor to the Trustee of the Home Equity Loans set forth on the applicable Schedule of Home Equity Loans is absolute and is intended by the Owners and all parties hereto to be treated as a sale by the Seller, the Conduit Seller and the Depositor for bankruptcy law purposes.

In the event that any such conveyance is deemed to be a loan, the parties intend that each of the Seller and the Conduit Seller shall be deemed to have granted to the Depositor and the Depositor shall be deemed to have granted to the Trustee a security interest in the Trust Estate, and that this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law.

(b)

In connection with the transfer and assignment of the Home Equity Loans, CHEC agrees to:

(i)

deliver without recourse to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, on the Startup Day with respect to each Home Equity Loan (except that, in the case of any Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loans, such delivery may take place within twenty (20) days following the Startup Day), (A) the original Note endorsed in blank or to the order of the Trustee (“Pay to the order of JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, as Trustee for Centex Home Equity Loan Trust 2006-__, without recourse”) and signed by manual signature of the Seller or the Conduit Seller, as applicable, or, if the original Note has been lost or destroyed and not replaced, an original lost note affidavit from the Seller, or the Conduit Seller, as applicable, stating that the original Note was lost or destroyed, together with a copy of the related Note, such lost note affidavits not to exceed 5% of the Pool Balance as of the Cut-Off Date; (B) either (1) if the original title insurance policy is not available, the original title insurance commitment or a copy thereof certified as a true copy by the closing agent or CHEC, and when available, the original title insurance policy or a copy certified by the issuer of the title insurance policy, (2) if title insurance is not available in the applicable state, the attorney’s opinion of title, or (3) for a Home Equity Loan the original principal balance of which was equal to or less than $[__________], a title report and indemnity, (C) originals or copies of all intervening assignments certified as true copies by the closing agent or CHEC, showing a complete chain of title from origination to the Seller or the Conduit Seller, if any, including warehousing assignments, if recorded, (D) originals of all assumption and modification agreements, if any, (E) either: (1) the original Mortgage, with evidence of recording thereon (if such original Mortgage has been returned to the Seller or the Conduit Seller, as applicable, from the applicable recording office), or a copy of the Mortgage certified as a true copy by the closing agent or an Authorized Officer of CHEC, or (2) a copy of the Mortgage certified by the public recording office in those instances where the original recorded Mortgage has been lost and (F) the original assignments of Mortgages (as described in clause (b)(ii)) in recordable form and acceptable for recording in the state or other jurisdiction where the Property is located;

(ii)

cause, within 60 days following the Startup Day with respect to the Home Equity Loans, assignments of the Mortgages from the Seller or the Conduit Seller, as applicable, to “JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, as Trustee of Centex Home Equity Loan Trust 2006-__ under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement dated as of [_________, 2006]” to be submitted for recording in the appropriate jurisdictions; provided, further, that CHEC shall not be required to record an assignment of a Mortgage if CHEC furnishes to the Trustee, on or before the Startup Day, at CHEC’s expense, an Opinion of Counsel with respect to the relevant jurisdiction that such recording is not necessary to perfect the Trustee’s interest in the related Home Equity Loans (in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee and the Rating Agencies); provided further, however, notwithstanding the delivery of any legal opinions, each assignment of Mortgage shall be recorded by the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee at the expense of CHEC upon the earliest to occur of: (i) the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event, (ii) if the Seller is not the Servicer and with respect to any one assignment of Mortgage, the occurrence of a bankruptcy, insolvency or foreclosure relating to the Mortgagor under the related Mortgage, or (iii) the occurrence of a bankruptcy or insolvency relating to the Seller or the Conduit Seller, as applicable;

(iii)

deliver the title insurance policy or title searches or reports, the original Mortgages and such recorded assignments, together with originals or duly certified copies of any and all prior assignments (other than unrecorded warehouse assignments), to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, within 15 days of receipt thereof by CHEC, but in any event, with respect to any Mortgage as to which original recording information has been made available to the Seller or the Conduit Seller, within one year after the Startup Day; and

(iv)

furnish to the Trustee and the Rating Agencies, at CHEC’s expense, an Opinion of Counsel with respect to the sale and perfection of the Home Equity Loans delivered to the Trust.

In connection with the transfer and assignment set forth in clause (i) above, the Depositor has delivered or caused to be delivered to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, (or, in the case of the Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loans, will deliver or cause to be delivered to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, within twenty (20) days following the Startup Day) for the benefit of the Certificateholders the documents or instruments set forth in clause (i) above, with respect to each Home Equity Loan.

In instances where the original recorded Mortgage cannot be delivered by CHEC to the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee prior to or concurrently with the execution and delivery of this Agreement due to a delay in connection with recording, CHEC may in lieu of delivering such original recorded Mortgage, deliver to the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee a copy thereof, provided that CHEC certifies that the original Mortgage has been delivered to a title insurance company for recordation after receipt of its policy of title insurance or binder therefor.  In all such instances, CHEC will deliver or cause to be delivered the original recorded Mortgage to the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee promptly upon receipt of the original recorded Mortgage but in no event later than one year after the Startup Day.

CHEC hereby confirms to the Trustee that it has made the appropriate entries in its general records to indicate that such Home Equity Loans have been transferred to the Trustee and constitute part of the Trust Estate in accordance with the terms of the trust created hereunder.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 3.05, in those instances where the public recording office retains the original Mortgage, the assignment of a Mortgage or the intervening assignments of the Mortgage after it has been recorded, the Depositor and each of the Sellers shall be deemed to have satisfied their obligations hereunder upon delivery to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, of a copy of such Mortgage, such assignment or assignments of Mortgage certified by the public recording office to be a true copy of the recorded original thereof.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 3.05, within twenty days after the Startup Day, the Seller shall either (i) deliver to the Depositor, or at the Depositor’s direction, to the Trustee or the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, or other designee of the Depositor the File as required pursuant to this Section 3.05 for each Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loan or (ii) (A) substitute a Qualified Replacement Mortgage for the Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loan or (B) repurchase the Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loan, which substitution or repurchase shall be accomplished in the manner and subject to the conditions set forth in Section 3.06(b); provided, however, that if the Seller fails to deliver a File for any Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loan within the twenty-day period provided above, the Seller shall use its best reasonable efforts to effect a substitution, rather than a repurchase of, such Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loan and provided further that the cure period provided for in Section 3.06(b) shall not apply to the initial delivery of the File for such Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loan, but rather the Seller shall have five (5) Business Days to cure such failure to deliver. At the end of such twenty-day period the Trustee shall send a Delayed Delivery Certification for the Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loans delivered during such twenty-day period in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.06.

Not later than ten days following the end of the 60-day period referred in clause (b)(ii) above, CHEC shall deliver to the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee, with a copy to the Trustee, a list of all Mortgages for which no Mortgage assignment has yet been submitted for recording by CHEC, which list shall state the reason why CHEC has not yet submitted such Mortgage assignments for recording.  With respect to any Mortgage assignment disclosed on such list as not yet submitted for recording for a reason other than a lack of original recording information, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, shall make an immediate demand on CHEC to prepare such Mortgage assignments.  Thereafter, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, shall cooperate in executing any documents submitted to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee in connection with this provision.  Following the expiration of the 60-day period referred to in clause (b)(ii) above, CHEC shall promptly prepare a Mortgage assignment for any Mortgage for which original recording information is subsequently received by CHEC, and shall promptly deliver a copy of such Mortgage assignment to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee.  CHEC agrees that it will follow its normal servicing procedures and attempt to obtain the original recording information necessary to complete a Mortgage assignment.  In the event that CHEC is unable to obtain such recording information with respect to any Mortgage prior to the end of the 18th calendar month following the Startup Day and has not provided to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, a Mortgage assignment with evidence of recording thereon relating to the assignment of such Mortgage to the Trustee, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee shall notify CHEC of its obligation to provide a completed assignment (with evidence of recording thereon) on or before the end of the 20th calendar month following the Startup Day.  If no such completed assignment (with evidence of recording thereon) is provided before the end of such 20th calendar month, the related Home Equity Loan shall be deemed to have breached the representation contained in clause (xxii) of Section 3.04(b) hereof.  The requirement to deliver a completed assignment with evidence of recording thereon will be deemed satisfied upon delivery of a copy of the completed assignment certified by the applicable public recording office.

Copies of all Mortgage assignments received by the Custodian on behalf of the Trustee shall be retained in the related File.

All recording required pursuant to this Section 3.05 shall be accomplished at the expense of CHEC.

(c)

In the case of Home Equity Loans which have been prepaid in full on or after the Cut-Off Date and prior to the Startup Day, CHEC, in lieu of the foregoing, will deliver within six (6) days after the Startup Day to the Trustee a certification of an Authorized Officer in the form set forth in Exhibit D.

(d)

CHEC shall transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey, without recourse, to the Trustee all right, title and interest of CHEC in and to any Qualified Replacement Mortgage delivered to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee on behalf of the Trust by CHEC pursuant to Section 3.04 or 3.06 hereof and all its right, title and interest to principal and interest due on such Qualified Replacement Mortgage on and after the applicable Replacement Cut-Off Date; provided, however, that CHEC shall reserve and retain all right, title and interest in and to payments of principal and interest due on such Qualified Replacement Mortgage prior to the applicable Replacement Cut-Off Date.

(e)

As to each Home Equity Loan released from the Trust in connection with a repurchase thereof or the conveyance of a Qualified Replacement Mortgage therefor, the Trustee will transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey without recourse or representation, on CHEC’s order, all of its right, title and interest in and to such released Home Equity Loan and all the Trust’s right, title and interest to principal and interest due on such released Home Equity Loan after the applicable repurchase date or Replacement Cut-Off Date, as the case may be; provided, however, that the Trust shall reserve and or and retain all right, title and interest in and to payments of principal and interest due on such released Home Equity Loan prior to such repurchase date or Replacement Cut-Off Date, as the case may be.

(f)

In connection with any transfer and assignment of a Qualified Replacement Mortgage to the Trustee on behalf of the Trust, CHEC agrees to (i) deliver or cause to be delivered without recourse to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee on the date of delivery of such Qualified Replacement Mortgage the original Note relating thereto, endorsed in blank or to the order of the Trustee, (ii) cause promptly to be recorded an assignment in the appropriate jurisdictions, (iii) deliver or cause to be delivered the original Qualified Replacement Mortgage and such recorded assignment, together with original or duly certified copies of any and all prior assignments, to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee within 15 days of receipt thereof by CHEC (but in any event within 120 days after the date of conveyance of such Qualified Replacement Mortgage) and (iv) deliver the title insurance policy, or where no such policy is required to be provided under Section 3.05(b)(i)(B), the other evidence of title required in Section 3.05(b)(i)(B).

(g)

As to each Home Equity Loan released from the Trust in connection with a repurchase or the conveyance of a Qualified Replacement Mortgage, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee shall deliver on the date of such repurchase or conveyance of such Qualified Replacement Mortgage and on the order of CHEC (i) the original Note relating thereto, endorsed, without recourse or representation, in blank or to the order of CHEC, (ii) the original Mortgage so released and all assignments relating thereto and (iii) such other documents as constituted the File with respect thereto.

(h)

If a Mortgage assignment is lost during the process of recording, or is returned from the recorder’s office unrecorded due to a defect therein, CHEC shall prepare or cause to be prepared a substitute assignment or cure such defect, as the case may be, and thereafter cause each such assignment to be duly recorded.

Section 3.06.

Acceptance by Trustee; Certain Substitutions of Home Equity Loans; Certification by Trustee.

(a)

The Trustee agrees to execute and deliver and the Trustee agrees to cause the Custodian to execute and deliver on behalf of the Trustee on the Startup Day an acknowledgment of receipt of the items delivered by CHEC in the forms attached as Exhibits E-1 and E-2 hereto, respectively, and declares through the Custodian that it will hold such documents and any amendments, replacements or supplements thereto, as well as any other assets included in the definition of Trust Estate and delivered to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, as Trustee in trust upon and subject to the conditions set forth herein for the benefit of the Owners.  At the end of the twenty (20) day period after the Startup Day, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, shall execute and deliver to the Depositor, the Servicer and the Sellers a Delayed Delivery Certification with respect to the Delayed Delivery Home Equity Loans in the form attached as Exhibit E-3 hereto, with any applicable exceptions noted thereon.  The Trustee agrees, for the benefit of the Owners, to cause the Custodian to review the items delivered by CHEC pursuant to Section 3.05(b)(i) within 45 days after the Startup Day (or, with respect to any document delivered after the Startup Day, within 45 days of receipt and with respect to any Qualified Replacement Mortgage, within 45 days after the assignment thereof) and to deliver to the Depositor, the Seller, the Conduit Seller, the Servicer and the Trustee a certification in the form attached hereto as Exhibit F (a “Pool Certification”) to the effect that, as to each Home Equity Loan listed in the Schedule of Home Equity Loans (other than any Home Equity Loan paid in full or any Home Equity Loan specifically identified in such Pool Certification as not covered by such Pool Certification), (i) all documents required to be delivered to it pursuant to Section 3.05(b)(i) of this Agreement have been executed and are in its possession and that the Notes have been endorsed as set forth in Section 3.05(b)(i) hereof, (ii) such documents have been reviewed by it and have not been mutilated, damaged or torn and relate to such Home Equity Loan and (iii) based on its examination and only as to the foregoing documents, the information set forth on the Schedule of Home Equity Loans accurately reflects the information set forth in the File, except as may be indicated in an exception report in the form attached hereto as Exhibit J (“Exception Report”), such Exception Report to be provided electronically concurrently with the delivery of the Pool Certification to the e-mail addresses specified by the recipients.  The Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, shall have no responsibility for reviewing any File except as expressly provided in this subsection 3.06(a).  Without limiting the effect of the preceding sentence, in reviewing any File, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, shall have no responsibility for determining whether any document is valid and binding, whether the text of any assignment is in proper form (except to determine if the Trustee is the assignee), whether any document has been recorded in accordance with the requirements of any applicable jurisdiction or whether a blanket assignment is permitted in any applicable jurisdiction, but shall only be required to determine whether a document has been executed, that it appears to be what it purports to be, and, where applicable, that it purports to be recorded.  The Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, shall be under no duty or obligation to inspect, review or examine any such documents, instruments, certificates or other papers to determine that they are genuine, enforceable, or appropriate for the represented purpose or that they are other than what they purport to be on their face, nor shall the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, be under any duty to determine independently whether there are any intervening assignments or assumption or modification agreements with respect to any Home Equity Loan.

(b)

If the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee during such 45-day period finds any document constituting a part of a File which is not executed, has not been received, or is unrelated to the Home Equity Loans identified in the Schedule of Home Equity Loans, or that any Home Equity Loan does not conform to the description thereof as set forth in the Schedule of Home Equity Loans, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee shall promptly so notify the Depositor, CHEC and the Owners.  In performing any such review, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee may conclusively rely on CHEC as to the purported genuineness of any such document and any signature thereon.  It is understood that the scope of the review of the items delivered by CHEC pursuant to Section 3.05(b)(i) is limited solely to confirming that the documents listed in Section 3.05(b)(i) have been executed and received, relate to the Files identified in the Schedule of Home Equity Loans and conform to the description thereof in the Schedule of Home Equity Loans.  CHEC agrees to use reasonable efforts to remedy a material defect in a document constituting part of a File of which it is so notified by the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee.  If, however, within 90 days after such notice to it respecting such defect CHEC has not remedied the defect and the defect materially and adversely affects the interest in the related Home Equity Loan of the Owners, CHEC will (or will cause an Affiliate to) on the next succeeding Monthly Remittance Date (i) substitute in lieu of such Home Equity Loan a Qualified Replacement Mortgage and deliver the Substitution Amount to the Servicer for deposit in the Principal and Interest Account or (ii) purchase such Home Equity Loan at a purchase price equal to the Loan Purchase Price thereof, which purchase price shall be delivered to the Servicer for deposit in the Principal and Interest Account.  In connection with any proposed purchase or substitution of a Home Equity Loan, CHEC shall cause at its expense to be delivered to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel experienced in federal income tax matters stating whether or not such a proposed purchase or substitution would constitute a Prohibited Transaction for the Trust or would jeopardize the status of any REMIC created hereunder as a REMIC, and CHEC shall only be required to take either such action to the extent such action would not constitute a Prohibited Transaction for the Trust and would not jeopardize the status of such REMIC as a REMIC.  Any required purchase or substitution, if delayed by the absence of such opinion, shall nonetheless occur upon the earlier of (i) the occurrence of a default or imminent default with respect to the Home Equity Loan or (ii) the delivery of such opinion.

(c)

In addition to the foregoing, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee also agrees to make a review during the 12th month after the Startup Day indicating the current status of the exceptions previously indicated on the Exception Report delivered electronically concurrently with the Pool Certification in the form attached hereto as Exhibit F (the “Final Certification”) and, by the end of the 12th month after the Startup Day, deliver electronically to the Depositor, the Seller, the Conduit Seller, the Servicer and the Trustee (to the e-mail addresses specified by the recipients) such Final Certification.  After delivery of the Final Certification, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee and the Servicer shall provide electronically to the Trustee (to the e-mail address specified by the Trustee) no less frequently than monthly updated certifications indicating the then current status of exceptions, until all such exceptions have been eliminated.

Section 3.07.

High-Cost Home Loans.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the parties hereto acknowledge that the functions of the Trustee with respect to the custody, acceptance, inspection and release of the Files pursuant to Sections 3.05, 3.06, and 8.14 and the related Pool Certification and Final Certification shall be performed by the Custodian on the Trustee’s behalf pursuant to the Custodial Agreement; provided, however, the Trustee shall remain primarily liable for such obligations.  The fees and expenses of the Custodian will be paid by the Servicer.

If, pursuant to Section 4.12 of the Custodial Agreement, the Custodian shall request written instructions from the Trustee, the Trustee hereby agrees to promptly provide such instructions.

Section 3.09.

Cooperation Procedures.

(a)

The Seller, the Conduit Seller, the Depositor, the Servicer and the Trustee covenant to provide each other with all data and information required to be provided by them hereunder at the times required hereunder, and additionally covenant reasonably to cooperate with each other in providing any additional information required to be obtained by any of them in connection with their respective duties hereunder.  CHEC shall, in connection with the delivery of each Qualified Replacement Mortgage to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, provide the Trustee with information set forth in the Schedule of Home Equity Loans with respect to such Qualified Replacement Mortgage.

(b)

The Servicer shall maintain such accurate and complete accounts, records and computer systems pertaining to each File as shall enable it and the Trustee to comply with this Agreement.  In performing its recordkeeping duties the Servicer shall act in accordance with the servicing standards set forth in this Agreement.  The Servicer shall conduct, or cause to be conducted, periodic audits of its accounts, records and computer systems as set forth in Sections 8.16 and 8.17 hereof.  The Servicer shall promptly report in writing to the Trustee any failure on its part to maintain its accounts, records and computer systems herein provided and promptly take appropriate action to remedy any such failure.

(c)

CHEC further confirms to the Trustee that it has caused the portions of the electronic ledger relating to the Home Equity Loans to be clearly and unambiguously marked to indicate that such Home Equity Loans have been sold, transferred, assigned and conveyed through the Depositor to the Trustee and constitute part of the Trust Estate in accordance with the terms of the trust created hereunder.

Section 3.10.

Payment of Taxes, Insurance and Other Charges.

With respect to each Home Equity Loan, the Servicer shall maintain accurate records reflecting fire and hazard insurance coverage.

With respect to each Home Equity Loan as to which the Servicer maintains escrow accounts, the Servicer shall maintain accurate records reflecting the status of property taxes which are or may become a lien upon the Property and the status of fire and hazard insurance coverage and shall obtain, from time to time, all bills for the payment of such charges (including renewal premiums) and shall effect payment thereof prior to the applicable penalty or termination date and at a time appropriate for securing maximum discounts allowable, employing for such purpose deposits of the Mortgagor in any escrow account which shall have been estimated and accumulated by the Servicer in amounts sufficient for such purposes, as allowed under the terms of the Mortgage.  To the extent that a Mortgage does not provide for escrow payments, the Servicer shall, if it has received notice of a default or deficiency, monitor such payments to determine if they are made by the Mortgagor, and for this purpose the Servicer shall maintain a third-party (which may be an Affiliate of the Servicer) tax monitoring service.

It is intended that the Offered Certificates be registered so as to participate in a global book-entry system with the Depository, as set forth herein.  Each Class of Offered Certificates shall, except as otherwise provided in Subsection (h), be initially issued in the form of a single fully registered Offered Certificate of such Class.  Upon initial issuance, the ownership of each such Offered Certificate shall be registered in the Register in the name of Cede & Co., or any successor thereto, as nominee for the Depository.

On the Startup Day, the Offered Certificates (other than the Class B-3 Certificates) shall be issued in denominations of $25,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof and the Class B-3 Certificates shall be issued in denomination of $100,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.

The Depositor and the Trustee are hereby authorized to execute and deliver the Representation Letter with the Depository in the form provided to the Trustee by the Depositor.

With respect to the Offered Certificates registered in the Register in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee of the Depository, the Depositor, the Servicer, the Seller and the Trustee shall have no responsibility or obligation to Direct or Indirect Participants or beneficial owners for which the Depository holds Offered Certificates from time to time as a Depository.  Without limiting the immediately preceding sentence, the Depositor, the Servicer, the Sellers and the Trustee shall have no responsibility or obligation with respect to (i) the accuracy of the records of the Depository, Cede & Co., or any Direct or Indirect Participant with respect to the ownership interest in the Offered Certificates, (ii) the delivery to any Direct or Indirect Participant or any other Person, other than a registered Owner of an Offered Certificate as shown in the Register, of any notice with respect to the Offered Certificates or (iii) the payment to any Direct or Indirect Participant or any other Person, other than a registered Owner of an Offered Certificate as shown in the Register, of any amount with respect to any distribution of principal or interest on the Offered Certificates.  No Person other than a registered Owner of an Offered Certificate as shown in the Register shall receive a certificate evidencing such Offered Certificate.

Upon delivery by the Depository to the Trustee of written notice to the effect that the Depository has determined to substitute a new nominee in place of Cede & Co., and subject to the provisions hereof with respect to the payment of interest by the mailing of checks or drafts to the registered Owners of Offered Certificates appearing as registered Owners in the registration books maintained by the Trustee at the close of business on a Record Date, the name “Cede & Co.” in this Agreement shall refer to such new nominee of the Depository.

(h)

In the event that (i) the Depository or the Depositor advises the Trustee in writing that the Depository is no longer willing or able to discharge properly its responsibilities as nominee and depository with respect to the Offered Certificates and either of CHEC or the Trustee is unable to locate a qualified successor or (ii) the Depositor at its sole option elects to terminate the book-entry system through the Depository or (iii) after the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event, the beneficial owners of each Class of Offered Certificates representing Percentage Interests aggregating not less than [____]% of such Class advises the Trustee and Depository through the Direct or Indirect Participants in writing that the continuation of a book-entry system through the Depository to the exclusion of definitive, fully registered certificates (the “Definitive Certificates”) to Owners is no longer in the best interests of the Owners, the Offered Certificates shall no longer be restricted to being registered in the Register in the name of Cede & Co. (or a successor nominee) as nominee of the Depository.  In the case of (i) and (ii) above, CHEC may determine that the Offered Certificates shall be registered in the name of and deposited with a successor depository operating a global book-entry system, as may be acceptable to the CHEC and at the expense of CHEC, or such depository’s agent or designee but, if CHEC does not select such alternative global book-entry system and in the case of (iii) above, the Offered Certificates may be registered in whatever name or names registered Owners of Offered Certificates transferring Offered Certificates shall designate, in accordance with the provisions hereof.

(i)

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, so long as any Offered Certificate is registered in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee of the Depository, all distributions of principal or interest on such Offered Certificates and all notices with respect to such Offered Certificates shall be made and given, respectively, in the manner provided in the Representation Letter.

Section 5.05.

Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost or Stolen Certificates.

If (i) any mutilated Certificate is surrendered to the Trustee, or the Trustee receives evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Certificate, and (ii) in the case of any mutilated Certificate, such mutilated Certificate shall first be surrendered to the Trustee, and in the case of any destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate, there shall be first delivered to the Trustee such security or indemnity as may be reasonably required by it to hold the Trustee harmless (provided, that with respect to an Owner which is an institutional investor, a letter of indemnity furnished by it shall be sufficient for this purpose), then, in the absence of written notice to the Trustee or the Registrar that such Certificate has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, the Trustee shall execute on behalf of the Trust and the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate, a new Certificate of like Class, tenor and aggregate principal amount, bearing a number not contemporaneously outstanding.

Upon the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section, the Registrar or Trustee may require the payment from the transferor or transferee of the related Certificate of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto; any other expenses in connection with such issuance shall be an expense of the Trust.

Every new Certificate issued pursuant to this Section in exchange for or in lieu of any mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate shall constitute evidence of a substitute interest in the Trust, and shall be entitled to all the benefits of this Agreement equally and proportionately with any and all other Certificates of the same Class duly issued hereunder and such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate shall not be valid for any purpose.

The provisions of this Section are exclusive and shall preclude (to the extent lawful) all other rights and remedies with respect to the replacement or payment of mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificates.

Section 5.06.

Persons Deemed Owners.

Prior to due presentment for registration of transfer of any Certificate, the Trustee and any agent of the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name any Certificate is registered as the Owner of such Certificate for the purpose of receiving distributions with respect to such Certificate and for all other purposes whatsoever, and neither the Trustee nor any agent of the Trustee shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

Section 5.07.

Cancellation.

All Certificates surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall, if surrendered to any Person other than the Trustee, be delivered to the Trustee and shall be promptly canceled by it.  No Certificate shall be authenticated in lieu of or in exchange for any Certificate canceled as provided in this Section, except as expressly permitted by this Agreement.  All canceled Certificates may be held by the Trustee in accordance with its standard retention policy in effect from time to time.

Section 5.08.

Limitation on Transfer of Ownership Rights.

(a)

No sale or other transfer of record or beneficial ownership of a Class R Certificate (whether pursuant to a purchase, a transfer resulting from a default under a secured lending agreement or otherwise) shall be made to a Disqualified Organization or an agent of a Disqualified Organization.  The transfer, sale or other disposition of a Class R Certificate (whether pursuant to a purchase, a transfer resulting from a default under a secured lending agreement or otherwise) to a Disqualified Organization shall be deemed to be of no legal force or effect whatsoever and such transferee shall not be deemed to be an Owner for any purpose hereunder, including, but not limited to, the receipt of distributions on such Class R Certificate.  Furthermore, in no event shall the Trustee accept surrender for transfer, registration of transfer, or register the transfer, of any Class R Certificate nor authenticate and make available any new Class R Certificate unless the Trustee has received an affidavit from the proposed transferee in the form attached hereto as Exhibit H.  Each holder of a Class R Certificate by his acceptance thereof, shall be deemed for all purposes to have consented to the provisions of this Section 5.08(a).

(b)

No other sale or other transfer of record or beneficial ownership of a Class B-3, Class X-IO or Class R Certificate shall be made unless such transfer is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, and any applicable state securities laws or is made in accordance with said Securities Act and laws.  In the event of any such transfer: (i) in the case of transfers for which an investment letter in the form of Exhibit I-1 or I-2 is provided by the transferee to the Trustee, the Trustee or the Depositor shall require a written Opinion of Counsel acceptable to and in form and substance satisfactory to the Depositor and the Trustee to the effect that such transfer may be made pursuant to an exemption, describing the applicable exemption and the basis therefor, from said Securities Act or is being made pursuant to said Securities Act, which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Depositor, the Trustee or the Trust Estate; and (ii) in the case of transfers for which an investment letter in the form of Exhibit I-1 or I-2 is provided, the investment letter shall not be an expense of the Depositor, the Trustee or the Trust Estate.  The Owner of a Class B-3, Class X-IO or Class R Certificate desiring to effect such transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Trustee, the Depositor and the Sellers against any liability that may result if the transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with such federal and state laws.

(c)

No transfer of an ERISA-Restricted Certificate shall be made unless the Trustee shall have received from the transferee of such ERISA-Restricted Certificate, in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee, either: (i) a representation letter (which may be combined with the investment letter, in the form of Exhibit I-1 or I-2, required by subsection (b) above), to the effect that such transferee is not an employee benefit plan or other retirement arrangement subject to Section 406 of ERISA or to Section 4975 of the Code (collectively, a “Plan”), nor is acting for, on behalf or with the assets of, any Plan to effect such transfer; (ii) if the ERISA-Restricted Certificate has been the subject of an ERISA-Qualifying Underwriting (other than the Class R Certificates), a representation letter that it is an insurance company that is purchasing the Certificate with funds contained in an “insurance company general account” as defined in Section V(e) of Prohibited Transaction Class Exemption (“PTCE”) 95-60 and the purchase and holding of the Certificate are covered under Sections I and III of PTCE 95-60; or (iii) an Opinion of Counsel, which shall not be at the expense of either the Depositor, the Servicer, the Trustee or the Trust Estate, to the effect that the purchase or holding of the ERISA-Restricted Certificate will not result in any non-exempt prohibited transaction under Section 406 of ERISA and/or Section 4975 of the Code, and will not subject any of the above parties to any obligation or liability in addition to those expressly undertaken under this Agreement.  Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary herein, the representations required above with respect to any Certificate that is in book-entry form shall be deemed to have been made by the Owner of such Certificate by virtue of such acquisition; any purported transfer of a Certificate to or on behalf of any Plan without the delivery to the Trustee of an Opinion of Counsel as described above shall be null and void and of no effect.

(d)

[Reserved].

(e)

No sale or other transfer of any Class X-IO Certificates or Class R Certificate may be made to the Depositor, to any Person that was, at any time, an owner of a Home Equity Loan, or to any Seller except in connection with (1) with respect to the Depositor, the initial issuance of such Certificates by the Trust to the Depositor and, with respect to CHEC and the Conduit Seller, the payment in partial consideration for the Home Equity Loans sold by the applicable Seller or in payment of any deferred purchase price under the Conduit Warehousing Facility by the Conduit Seller to CHEC on the Startup Day and (2) the contemporaneous transfer of such Certificates to CHEC Residual, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company.

(f)

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 5.08, the Class R Certificates and Class X-IO Certificates may be transferred to CHEC Residual, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Seller, without regard to Sections 5.08(b), (c) or (e) above.

Section 5.09.

Assignment of Rights.

Other than with respect to any Class R Certificates (unless the Trustee shall have received a satisfactory Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such action with respect to a Class R Certificate will not have an adverse effect on the status of any REMIC created hereunder as a “REMIC”) an Owner may pledge, encumber, hypothecate or assign all or any part of its right to receive distributions hereunder, but such pledge, encumbrance, hypothecation or assignment shall not constitute a transfer of an ownership interest sufficient to render the transferee an Owner of the Trust without compliance with the provisions of Section 5.04 and Section 5.08 hereof.

Section 7.04.

Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund; WAC Excess.

(a)

On the Startup Day, the holders of the Class X-IO Certificates will deposit, or cause to be deposited, into the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund, $[__________].  On each Distribution Date as to which there is WAC Excess to the extent not paid under Section 7.12(b), the Trustee has been directed to, and shall therefore, deposit into the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund an amount equal to the WAC Excess to the extent of the Class X-IO Distribution Amount which is payable pursuant to Section 7.03(b) clause C.26 and 7.03(b) clause C.27.  If no WAC Excess is payable on a Distribution Date, the Trustee shall deposit into the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund on behalf of the Class X-IO Certificateholders an amount such that when added to other amounts already on deposit in the fund, the aggregate amount on deposit therein is equal to $[__________].  For federal and state income tax purposes, the Class X-IO Certificateholders will be deemed to be the owners of the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund and all amounts deposited into the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund (other than the initial $[__________] deposit) shall be treated as amounts distributed by the Master REMIC with respect to the Class X-IO Distribution Amount.  Amounts held in the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund and not distributable to the Carryover Certificateholders on any Distribution Date will be invested by the Trustee in investments designated by the Class X-IO Certificateholders having maturities on or prior to the next succeeding Distribution Date on which such amounts will be distributable to the Carryover Certificateholders.  Upon the termination of the Trust, or the payment in full of the Carryover Certificates, all amounts remaining on deposit in the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund will be released from the lien of the Trust and distributed to the Class X-IO Certificateholders or their designees.  The Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund will be part of the Trust but not part of any REMIC created hereunder and any payments to the Carryover Certificates of WAC Excess will not be payments with respect to a “regular interest” in a REMIC within the meaning of Code Section 860G(a)(1).

(b)

The Trustee shall treat the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund as an outside reserve fund within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.860G-2(h) that is owned by the Class X-IO Certificateholders and that is not an asset of any REMIC.  The Trustee shall treat the rights of the Carryover Certificateholders to receive payments from the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund as rights in an interest rate cap contract written by the Class X-IO Certificateholders in favor of the Carryover Certificateholders.  Thus, each Carryover Certificate shall be treated as representing not only ownership of a regular interest in the Master REMIC, but also ownership of an interest in an interest rate cap contract.  For tax purposes this interest rate cap contract will be deemed to have a value of $[__________].

(c)

In addition, the Trustee shall treat the holders of Subordinate Certificates as having entered into a notional principal contract with respect to each holder of a Certificate senior to such Subordinate Certificate.  Pursuant to each such notional principal contract, all holders of a Class of Subordinate Certificates will be treated as having agreed to pay into the Supplement Interest Reserve Fund, on each Distribution Date, an aggregate amount equal to the excess of (i) the amount payable on the Master REMIC Regular Certificate corresponding to such Class of Subordinate Certificates on such Distribution Date over (ii) the amount payable on such Class of Subordinate Certificates on such Distribution Date.  The aggregate amount payable pursuant to each notional principal contract shall be allocable to such Classes of senior Certificates in accordance with the relative amounts of cap shortfall, if any, for the Classes of senior Certificates.  For this purpose, cap shortfall for a Class of senior Certificates is the excess, if any, of (i) the amount payable on such Class of senior Certificates on such Distribution Date over (ii) the amount payable on the Master REMIC Regular Certificate corresponding to such Class of senior Certificates on such Distribution Date.  The Trustee shall account for the obligation of the Subordinate Certificateholders to pay these amounts, as if the Subordinate Certificateholder received the amount as part of its distribution from the Master REMIC and then paid the amount to the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund pursuant to a notional principal contract that is separate and apart from any REMIC created pursuant to this Agreement and the Trustee shall account for the rights of Certificateholders to receive these amounts in addition to any other amounts from the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund as rights in an interest rate cap contract written by the Class X-IO Certificateholders in favor of the Carryover Certificates that the Trustee holds separate and apart from any REMIC regular interest created by this Agreement in accordance with Treasury regulation section 1.860G-2(i).  Nothing in this paragraph shall affect the priority of any distributions on the Certificates.

(d)

Notwithstanding the priority and sources of payments set forth in Section 7.03 hereof or otherwise, the Trustee shall account for all distributions on the Certificates as set forth in this section.  In no event shall any payments provided for in this section be treated as payments with respect to a “regular interest” in a REMIC within the meaning of Code Section 860G(a)(1) and shall be treated as an asset held separate and apart from any REMIC created under this Agreement in accordance with Treasury regulation section 1.860G-2(i).

Section 7.05.

Investment of Accounts.

(a)

Consistent with any requirements of the Code, all or a portion of any Account held by the Trustee for the benefit of the Owners may (i) remain uninvested or (ii) be invested and reinvested by the Trustee as directed in writing by the Servicer in the name of the Trustee for the benefit of the Owners in one or more Eligible Investments bearing interest or sold at a discount.  The bank serving as Trustee or any Affiliate thereof may be the obligor on any investment which otherwise qualifies as an Eligible Investment.  No investment in any Account shall mature later than the Business Day immediately preceding the next Distribution Date.  Amounts held in the Certificate Account shall be invested in Eligible Investments, which Eligible Investments shall mature no later than the Business Day preceding the immediately following Distribution Date or, if such Eligible Investments are an obligation of the Trustee or are money market funds for which the Trustee or any Affiliate is the manager or the adviser, such Eligible Investments shall mature no later than the following Distribution Date.

(b)

If any amounts are needed for disbursement from any Account held by the Trustee and sufficient uninvested funds are not available to make such disbursement, the Trustee shall cause to be sold or otherwise converted to cash as directed in writing by the Servicer a sufficient amount of the investments in such Account.  No investments will be liquidated prior to maturity unless the proceeds thereof are needed for disbursement.

(c)

All income or other gain from investment in the Certificate Account held by the Trustee shall be withdrawn by the Trustee and remitted to the Servicer (except with respect to all income or other gain from investment earned on the Business Day immediately preceding a Distribution Date, which amounts shall be retained by the Trustee).  Any investment losses on amounts held in the Certificate Account shall, promptly upon realization of such loss, be contributed by the Servicer to the Trustee for deposit in the Certificate Account.

Section 7.06.

Payment of Trust Expenses.

(a)

With respect to the Certificate Account the Trustee shall receive all income and other gains from investments as described in Section 7.05(c).

The Cap Agreement Reserve Fund shall be treated as an “outside reserve fund” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.8606-2(h) and shall not be an asset of any REMIC or the Trust Fund created pursuant to this Agreement and, instead, shall be an asset of a separate trust.  For state and federal tax purposes the Servicer, on the Distribution Date in July 2008, shall be the beneficial owner of the Cap Agreement Reserve Fund.

If there are any aggregate payments under any Cap Agreement based on a notional balance in excess of the aggregate Certificate Principal Balances of the Group II Certificates and the aggregate Certificate Principal Balance of the Subordinate Certificates, the amount representing such excess payment shall not be an asset of the Trust Fund and, instead, shall be an asset of the separate trust referred to in subsection (d) above, and shall be paid into and distributed out of the separate trust referred to in subsection (d) above for the benefit of the Servicer to the extent of and in accordance with the priority of payments set forth in Section 7.12(b).

ARTICLE VIII

SERVICING AND ADMINISTRATION OF HOME EQUITY LOANS

Section 8.01.

Servicer and Sub-Servicers.

Acting directly or through one or more Sub-Servicers as provided in Section 8.03, the Servicer shall service and administer the Home Equity Loans in accordance with this Agreement and the terms of the respective Home Equity Loans, and with prudent and reasonable care, using the degree of skill and attention that the Servicer exercises with respect to comparable home equity loans that it services for itself or others and shall have full power and authority, acting alone, to do or cause to be done any and all things in connection with such servicing and administration which it may deem necessary or desirable but without regard to: (i) any relationship that the Servicer, any Sub-Servicer or any Affiliate of the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer may have with the related Mortgagor; (ii) the ownership of any Certificate by the Servicer or any Affiliate of the Servicer; (iii) the Servicer’s obligation to make Delinquency Advances or Servicing Advances; or (iv) the Servicer’s or any Sub-Servicer’s right to receive compensation for its services hereunder or with respect to any particular transaction.

Subject to Section 8.03 hereof, the Servicer may, and is hereby authorized to, perform any of its servicing responsibilities with respect to all or certain of the Home Equity Loans through a Sub-Servicer as it may from time to time designate, but no such designation of a Sub-Servicer shall serve to release the Servicer from any of its obligations under this Agreement.  Such Sub-Servicer shall have the rights and powers of the Servicer which have been delegated to such Sub-Servicer with respect to such Home Equity Loans under this Agreement.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, but subject to Sections 8.13 and 8.14, the Servicer in its own name or in the name of a Sub-Servicer is hereby authorized and empowered (i) to execute and deliver, on behalf of itself, the Owners and the Trustee or any of them, any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation or of partial or full release or discharge and all other comparable instruments with respect to the Home Equity Loans and with respect to the Properties, (ii) to institute foreclosure proceedings or obtain a deed in lieu of foreclosure so as to effect ownership of any Property in the name of the Servicer on behalf of the Trustee, and (iii) to hold title to any Property upon such foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure on behalf of the Trustee; provided, however, that Section 8.13(a) and Section 8.14(a) shall each constitute a revocable power of attorney from the Trustee to the Servicer to execute an instrument of satisfaction (or assignment of Mortgage without recourse) with respect to any Home Equity Loan held by the Trustee hereunder paid in full or foreclosed (or with respect to which payment in full has been escrowed).  Revocation of the power of attorney created by the proviso of the preceding sentence shall take effect upon (i) the receipt by the Servicer of written notice thereof from the Trustee or (ii) a Servicer Termination Event or (iii) the termination of the Trust.  The Trustee shall at the written direction of the Servicer execute any documentation furnished to it by the Servicer for recordation by the Servicer in the appropriate jurisdictions, as shall be necessary to effectuate the foregoing.  Subject to Sections 8.13 and 8.14, the Trustee shall, if necessary, execute a limited power of attorney in the form reasonably acceptable to the Trustee to the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer and furnish them with any other documents as the Servicer or such Sub-Servicer shall reasonably request to enable the Servicer and such Sub-Servicer to carry out their respective servicing and administrative duties hereunder.

Upon the request of the Trustee, the Servicer shall send to the Trustee, the details concerning the servicing of the Home Equity Loans on computer generated tape, diskette or other machine readable format which is mutually agreeable.

The Servicer shall give prompt written notice to the Trustee of any action, of which the Servicer has actual knowledge, to (i) assert a claim against the Trust or (ii) assert jurisdiction over the Trust.

Servicing Advances incurred by the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer in connection with the servicing of the Home Equity Loans (including any penalties in connection with the payment of any taxes and assessments or other charges on any Property) shall be recoverable by the Servicer or such Sub-Servicer to the extent described in Section 8.09(b) hereof.

The Servicer will exercise its discretion consistent with customary servicing procedures and the terms of this Agreement, with respect to the enforcement and servicing of defaulted Home Equity Loans in such manner as will maximize the receipt of principal and interest with respect thereto, including but not limited to the sale of such Home Equity Loans to a third party, the modification of such Home Equity Loans, or foreclosure upon the related Property and disposition thereof.

Section 8.02.

Collection of Certain Home Equity Loan Payments.

The Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Home Equity Loans, and shall, to the extent such procedures shall be consistent with this Agreement and the terms and provisions of any applicable Insurance Policy, follow collection procedures for all Home Equity Loans at least as rigorous as those described in the FNMA Guide.  Consistent with the foregoing, the Servicer may in its discretion waive or permit to be waived any late payment charge, prepayment charge, assumption fee or any penalty interest in connection with the prepayment of a Home Equity Loan or any other fee or charge which the Servicer would be entitled to retain hereunder as servicing compensation.  In the event the Servicer shall consent to the deferment of the due dates for payments due on a Note, the Servicer shall nonetheless make payment of any required Delinquency Advance with respect to the payments so extended to the same extent as if such installment were due, owing and Delinquent and had not been deferred, and shall be entitled to reimbursement therefor in accordance with Section 8.09(a) hereof.

Section 8.03.

Sub-Servicing Agreements Between Servicer and Sub-Servicers.

The Servicer may, with the prior written consent of the Trustee, enter into Sub-Servicing Agreements for any servicing and administration of Home Equity Loans with any institution which is acceptable to the Trustee and which (x) is in compliance with the laws of each state necessary to enable it to perform its obligations under such Sub-Servicing Agreement, (y) has experience servicing home equity loans that are similar to the Home Equity Loans and (z) has equity of not less than $5,000,000 (as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles).  The Servicer shall give written notice to the Trustee, the Owners and the Rating Agencies of the appointment of any Sub-Servicer (and shall receive the confirmation of the Rating Agencies that such Sub-Servicer shall not result in a withdrawal or downgrading by any Rating Agency of the rating or the shadow rating of the Offered Certificates).  For purposes of this Agreement, the Servicer shall be deemed to have received payments on Home Equity Loans when any Sub-Servicer has received such payments.  Each Sub-Servicer shall be required to service the Home Equity Loans in accordance with this Agreement and any such Sub-Servicing Agreement shall be consistent with and not violate the provisions of this Agreement.  Each Sub-Servicing Agreement shall provide that the Trustee (if acting as successor Servicer) or any other successor Servicer shall have the option to terminate such agreement without payment of any fees if the original Servicer is terminated or resigns.  The Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee copies of all Sub-Servicing Agreements, and any amendments or modifications thereof, promptly upon the Servicer’s execution and delivery of such instrument.

Section 8.04.

Successor Sub-Servicers.

The Servicer shall be entitled to terminate any Sub-Servicing Agreement in accordance with the terms and conditions of such Sub-Servicing Agreement and to either itself directly service the related Home Equity Loans or enter into a Sub-Servicing Agreement with a successor Sub-Servicer which qualifies under Section 8.03.

Section 8.05.

Liability of Servicer; Indemnification.

(a)

The Servicer shall not be relieved of its obligations under this Agreement notwithstanding any Sub-Servicing Agreement or any of the provisions of this Agreement relating to agreements or arrangements between the Servicer and a Sub-Servicer and the Servicer shall be obligated to the same extent and under the same terms and conditions as if it alone were servicing and administering the Home Equity Loans.  The Servicer shall be entitled to enter into any agreement with a Sub-Servicer for indemnification of the Servicer by such Sub-Servicer and nothing contained in such Sub-Servicing Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify this Agreement.

(b)

The Servicer agrees to indemnify and hold the Trustee, the Depositor and each Owner harmless against any and all claims, losses, penalties, fines, forfeitures, legal fees and related costs, judgments, and any other costs, fees and expenses that the Trustee, the Depositor and any Owner may sustain in any way related to the failure of the Servicer to perform its duties and service the Home Equity Loans in compliance with the terms of this Agreement.  The Servicer shall immediately notify the Trustee, the Depositor and each Owner if a claim is made by a third party with respect to this Agreement, and the Servicer shall assume (with the consent of the Trustee) the defense of any such claim and pay all expenses in connection therewith, including reasonable counsel fees, and promptly pay, discharge and satisfy any judgment or decree which may be entered against the Servicer, the Trustee, the Depositor and/or Owner in respect of such claim.  The Trustee shall, in accordance with written instructions received from the Servicer, reimburse the Servicer only from amounts otherwise distributable on the Class R Certificates for all amounts advanced by it pursuant to the preceding sentence, except when a final nonappealable adjudication determines that the claim relates directly to the failure of the Servicer to perform its duties in compliance with the Agreement.  The provisions of this Section 8.05(b) shall survive the termination of this Agreement, the resignation or removal of the Trustee, and the payment of the outstanding Certificates.

Section 8.06.

No Contractual Relationship Between Sub-Servicer, Trustee or the Owners.

Any Sub-Servicing Agreement and any other transactions or services relating to the Home Equity Loans involving a Sub-Servicer shall be deemed to be between the Sub-Servicer and the Servicer alone and the Trustee and the Owners shall not be deemed parties thereto and shall have no claims, rights, obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to any Sub-Servicer except as set forth in Section 8.07.

Section 8.07.

Assumption or Termination of Sub-Servicing Agreement by Trustee.

In connection with the assumption of the responsibilities, duties and liabilities and of the authority, power and rights of the Servicer hereunder by the Trustee pursuant to Section 8.20 or another successor Servicer, it is understood and agreed that the Servicer’s rights and obligations under any Sub-Servicing Agreement then in force between the Servicer and a Sub-Servicer shall be assumed simultaneously by the Trustee or another successor Servicer without act or deed on part of the Trustee or such successor servicer provided, however, that the Trustee (if acting as successor Servicer) or any other successor Servicer may terminate the Sub-Servicer as provided in Section 8.03.

The Servicer shall, upon the reasonable request of the Trustee, but at the expense of the Servicer, deliver to the assuming party documents and records relating to each Sub-Servicing Agreement and an accounting of amounts collected and held by it and otherwise use its best reasonable efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the Sub-Servicing Agreements to the assuming party.

Section 8.08.

Principal and Interest Account.

(a)

The Servicer shall establish and maintain at one or more Designated Depository Institutions the Principal and Interest Account, which shall be an Eligible Account.  The Principal and Interest Account shall be identified on the records of the Designated Depository Institution as follows: JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, as Trustee on behalf of the Owners of the Centex Home Equity Loan Trust [2006-__] Home Equity Loan Asset-Backed Certificates.  If the institution at any time holding the Principal and Interest Account ceases to be eligible as a Designated Depository Institution hereunder, then the Servicer shall immediately be required to name a successor institution meeting the requirements for a Designated Depository Institution hereunder.  If the Servicer fails to name such a successor institution, then the Principal and Interest Account shall thenceforth be held as a trust account at the Corporate Trust Office of the Trustee.  The Servicer shall notify the Trustee and the Owners if there is a change in the name, account number or institution holding the Principal and Interest Account.

Subject to Subsection (c) below, the Servicer shall deposit all receipts required pursuant to Subsection (c) below and related to the Home Equity Loans to the Principal and Interest Account on a daily basis (but no later than the second Business Day after receipt).

(b)

All funds in the Principal and Interest Account shall be held (i) uninvested up to the amount insured by the FDIC or (ii) invested in Eligible Investments.  Any investments of funds in the Principal and Interest Account shall mature or be withdrawable at par on or prior to the immediately succeeding Monthly Remittance Date.  The Principal and Interest Account shall be held in trust in the name of the Trust for the benefit of the Owners.  The Trust shall be divided into two separate sub-trusts; one for Group I and any Trust assets allocable to Group I and one for Group II and any Trust assets allocable to Group II.  Any investment earnings on funds held in the Principal and Interest Account shall be for the account of the Servicer and may only be withdrawn from the Principal and Interest Account by the Servicer immediately following the remittance of the Monthly Remittance Amount by the Servicer in accordance with the terms hereof.  Any investment losses on amounts held in the Principal and Interest Account shall be for the account of the Servicer and promptly upon the realization of such loss shall be contributed by the Servicer to the Principal and Interest Account.  Any references herein to amounts on deposit in the Principal and Interest Account shall refer to amounts net of such investment earnings.

(c)

The Servicer shall deposit to the Principal and Interest Account no later than the second Business Day after receipt, all principal collected and interest due on the Home Equity Loans (net of the Servicing Fee related to such Home Equity Loans) on and after the Cut-Off Date and the Replacement Cut-Off Date, as applicable, including any Prepayments and Net Liquidation Proceeds, other recoveries or amounts related to the Home Equity Loans received by the Servicer and any income from REO Properties, but net of (i) Net Liquidation Proceeds to the extent such Net Liquidation Proceeds exceed the sum of (A) the Loan Balance of the related Home Equity Loan immediately prior to liquidation, plus (B) accrued and unpaid interest on such Home Equity Loan (net of the related Servicing Fee) plus (C) any unrecovered Cram Down Losses, (ii) reimbursements for unreimbursed Delinquency Advances and unreimbursed Servicing Advances (but in each case solely from amounts received on the related Home Equity Loan) as provided in Section 8.09 and (iii) reimbursements for amounts deposited in the Principal and Interest Account representing payments of principal and/or interest on a Note by a Mortgagor which are subsequently returned by a depository institution as unpaid.

(d)

The Servicer may make withdrawals from the Principal and Interest Account, with respect to each Home Equity Loan Group, for the following purposes:

(A)

on each Monthly Remittance Date, to pay itself the related Servicing Fees to the extent such Servicing Fees are not retained by the Servicer;

(B)

to withdraw investment earnings on amounts on deposit in the Principal and Interest Account;

(C)

to withdraw amounts that have been deposited to the Principal and Interest Account in error;

(D)

to reimburse itself for unreimbursed Delinquency Advances and for unreimbursed Servicing Advances (in each case, solely from amounts recovered on the related Home Equity Loan) as provided in Section 8.09;

(E)

to reimburse itself pursuant to Sections 8.09(a) and (b) for Nonrecoverable Advances; and

(F)

to clear and terminate the Principal and Interest Account following the termination of the Trust pursuant to Article IX.

(e)

The Servicer shall (i) remit to the Trustee for deposit in the Certificate Account by wire transfer, or otherwise make funds available in immediately available funds, without duplication, the Monthly Remittance Amount allocable to a Remittance Period not later than the related Monthly Remittance Date, and (ii) on each Monthly Remittance Date, deliver to the Trustee and the Depositor, a monthly servicing report, with respect to each Home Equity Loan Group, containing (without limitation) the following information: principal and interest collected in respect of the Home Equity Loans, scheduled principal and interest that was due on the Home Equity Loans, relevant information with respect to Liquidated Loans, if any, summary and detailed delinquency reports, Liquidation Proceeds and other similar information concerning the servicing of the Home Equity Loans.  In addition, the Servicer shall inform the Trustee on each Monthly Remittance Date, with respect to each Home Equity Loan Group, of the amounts of any Loan Purchase Prices or Substitution Amounts so remitted during the related Remittance Period, and of the Loan Balance of the Home Equity Loan having the largest Loan Balance as of such date.

(f)

The Servicer shall provide to the Trustee the information described in Section 8.08(e)(ii) and in Section 7.09(b) to enable the Trustee to perform its reporting requirements under Section 7.09 and to make the allocations and disbursements set forth in Sections 7.02 and 7.03.

Section 8.09.

Delinquency Advances and Servicing Advances.

(a)

On or before each Monthly Remittance Date, the Servicer shall be required to remit to the Trustee for deposit to the Certificate Account out of the Servicer’s own funds or from collections on any Home Equity Loans that are not required to be distributed on the Distribution Date occurring during the month in which such remittance is made (all or any portion of such amount to be replaced on future Monthly Remittance Dates to the extent required for distribution) any Delinquent payment of interest with respect to each Delinquent Home Equity Loan, which payment was not received on or prior to the last day of the related Remittance Period.  Such amounts of the Servicer’s own funds so deposited are “Delinquency Advances”.

The Servicer shall be permitted to reimburse itself on any Business Day for any Delinquency Advances paid from the Servicer’s own funds (i) from late collections on the related Home Equity Loan or (ii) as otherwise provided in Section 7.03(b).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the Servicer determines in its reasonable business judgment in accordance with the servicing standards set out herein that any proposed Delinquency Advance would not be recoverable, the Servicer shall not be required to make Delinquency Advances with respect to such Home Equity Loan.  To the extent that the Servicer previously has made Delinquency Advances with respect to a Home Equity Loan that the Servicer subsequently determines are Nonrecoverable Advances, the Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement for such aggregate Nonrecoverable Advances from collections on any Home Equity Loan of the related Group on deposit in the Principal and Interest Account.  The Servicer shall deliver an Officer’s Certificate of such determination as to why such amount would not be recoverable to the Trustee; the Trustee shall promptly furnish a copy of such notice to the Owners of the Class R Certificates upon request; provided, further, that the Servicer shall be entitled to recover any unreimbursed Delinquency Advances from Liquidation Proceeds for the related Home Equity Loan.

(b)

The Servicer will pay all “out-of-pocket” costs and expenses incurred in the performance of its servicing obligations, including, but not limited to, (i) Preservation Expenses, (ii) the cost of any enforcement or judicial proceedings, including foreclosures, (iii) the cost of the management and liquidation of REO Property, (iv) advances required by Section 8.13(a), and (v) expenses incurred pursuant to Section 8.22, except to the extent that such amounts are determined by the Servicer in its reasonable business judgment not to be recoverable.  Such costs will constitute “Servicing Advances”.  The Servicer may recover a Servicing Advance (x) from the Mortgagors to the extent permitted by the Home Equity Loans or, if not theretofore recovered from the Mortgagor on whose behalf such Servicing Advance was made, from Liquidation Proceeds realized upon the liquidation of the related Home Equity Loan and (y) as provided in Section 7.03(b) clause C.29.  The Servicer shall be entitled to recover the Servicing Advances from the Liquidation Proceeds on the related Home Equity Loan prior to the payment of the Liquidation Proceeds to any other party to this Agreement.  In addition, to the extent that the Servicer previously has made Servicing Advances with respect to a Home Equity Loan that the Servicer subsequently determines are Nonrecoverable Advances, the Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement for such aggregate Nonrecoverable Advances from collections on any Home Equity Loan of the related Group on deposit in the Principal and Interest Account.  The Servicer shall deliver an Officer’s Certificate of such determination as to why such amount would not be recoverable to the Trustee; the Trustee shall promptly furnish a copy of such notice to the Owners of the Class R Certificates upon request.  In no case may the Servicer recover Servicing Advances from the principal and interest payments on any other Home Equity Loan except as provided in this section with respect to Nonrecoverable Advances and in Section 7.03(b) clause C.29.

Section 8.10.

Compensating Interest; Repurchase of Home Equity Loans.

(a)

If any Prepayment in full of a Home Equity Loan occurs during any calendar month, any shortfall between (x) the interest collected from the Mortgagor in connection with such payoff, and (y) the full month’s interest at the Coupon Rate that would be due on the related Due Date for such Home Equity Loan (“Compensating Interest”) (but not in excess of the aggregate Servicing Fee for the related Remittance Period) shall be deposited by the Servicer to the Principal and Interest Account (or if such difference is an excess, the Servicer shall retain such excess) on the next succeeding Monthly Remittance Date and shall be included in the Monthly Remittance Amount to be made available to the Trustee on such Monthly Remittance Date.  The Servicer may recover any unreimbursed payments of Compensating Interest from collections on any Home Equity Loan on deposit in the Principal and Interest Account, as provided in Section 7.03(b) clause C.29.

(b)

Subject to clause (c) below, the Servicer has the right and the option, but not the obligation, to purchase for its own account any Home Equity Loan which is 60 days or more Delinquent, or any Home Equity Loan as to which enforcement proceedings have been brought by the Servicer pursuant to Section 8.13; provided, however, that the Servicer may not purchase any such Home Equity Loan which is fewer than 180 days Delinquent unless the Servicer has delivered to the Trustee at the Servicer’s expense, an Opinion of Counsel acceptable to the Trustee to the effect that such a purchase would not constitute a Prohibited Transaction for the Trust or otherwise subject the Trust to tax and would not jeopardize the status of any REMIC created hereunder as REMICs.  Any such Home Equity Loan so purchased shall be purchased by the Servicer on or prior to a Monthly Remittance Date at a purchase price equal to the Loan Purchase Price thereof, which purchase price shall be deposited in the Principal and Interest Account.

(c)

[Reserved].

(d)

The Net Liquidation Proceeds from the disposition of any REO Property shall be deposited in the Principal and Interest Account and remitted to the Trustee as part of the Monthly Remittance Amount remitted by the Servicer to the Trustee.

Section 8.11.

Maintenance of Insurance.

(a)

(i)

The Servicer shall cause to be maintained with respect to each Home Equity Loan a hazard insurance policy with a carrier generally acceptable to the Servicer that provides for fire and extended coverage, and which provides for a recovery by the Trust of insurance proceeds relating to such Home Equity Loan in an amount not less than the least of (A) the outstanding principal balance of the Home Equity Loan (plus the related Senior Lien loan, if any), (B) the minimum amount required to compensate for damage or loss on a replacement cost basis and (C) the full insurable value of the premises.  The Servicer shall maintain the insurance policies required hereunder in the name of the mortgagee, its successors and assigns, and shall be named as loss payee.  The policies shall require the insurer to provide the mortgagee with 30 days’ notice prior to any cancellation or as otherwise required by law.

(ii)

As an alternative to maintaining a hazard insurance policy with respect to each Home Equity Loan as described in clause (i) above, the Servicer may maintain a blanket hazard insurance policy or policies, it being understood and agreed that such policy may contain a deductible clause that is in form and substance consistent with standard industry practice, if the insurer or insurers of such policies are rated investment grade by Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s and, if rated by Fitch, Fitch.

(b)

If the Home Equity Loan at the time of origination (or if required by federal law, at any time thereafter) relates to a Property in an area identified in the Federal Register by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as having special flood hazards, the Servicer will cause to be maintained with respect thereto a flood insurance policy in a form meeting the requirements of the then current guidelines of the Federal Insurance Administration with a carrier generally acceptable to the Servicer in an amount representing coverage, and which provides for a recovery by the Trust of insurance proceeds relating to such Home Equity Loan of not less than the least of (i) the outstanding principal balance of the Home Equity Loan (plus the related Senior Lien loan, if any), (ii) the minimum amount required to compensate for damage or loss on a replacement cost basis and (iii) the maximum amount of insurance that is available under the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973.  The Servicer shall indemnify the Trust out of the Servicer’s own funds for any loss to the Trust resulting from the Servicer’s failure to advance premiums for such insurance required by this Section when so permitted by the terms of the Mortgage as to which such loss relates.

(c)

Amounts collected by the Servicer under any Insurance Policy shall be deposited into the Principal and Interest Account.

Section 8.12.

Due-on-Sale Clauses; Assumption and Substitution Agreements.

When a Property has been or is about to be conveyed by the Mortgagor, the Servicer shall (except as provided below), to the extent it has knowledge of such conveyance or prospective conveyance, exercise its rights to accelerate the maturity of the related Home Equity Loan under any “due-on-sale” clause contained in the related Mortgage or Note; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not exercise any such right if the “due-on-sale” clause, in the reasonable belief of the Servicer, is not enforceable under applicable law, or the Servicer, in a manner consistent with reasonable commercial practice, and only if the Servicer reasonably believes assumption by the purchaser would not materially and adversely affect the interests of the Owners, permits the purchaser of the related Property to assume such Home Equity Loan.  An Opinion of Counsel, provided at the expense of the Servicer, to the foregoing effect shall conclusively establish the reasonableness of such belief.  In such event, the Servicer shall enter into an assumption and modification agreement with the person to whom such Property has been or is about to be conveyed, pursuant to which such person becomes liable under the Note and, unless prohibited by applicable law or the Mortgage documents, the Mortgagor remains liable thereon.  If the foregoing is not permitted under applicable law, the Servicer is authorized to enter into a substitution of liability agreement with such person, pursuant to which the original Mortgagor is released from liability and such person is substituted as Mortgagor and becomes liable under the Note.  The Home Equity Loan, as assumed, shall conform in all material respects to the requirements, representations and warranties of this Agreement.  The Servicer shall notify the Trustee in writing that any such assumption or substitution agreement has been completed by forwarding to the Custodian on the Trustee’s behalf the original copy of such assumption or substitution agreement (indicating the File to which it relates) which copy shall be added by the Trustee or by the Custodian on the Trustee’s behalf to the related File and which shall, for all purposes, be considered a part of such File to the same extent as all other documents and instruments constituting a part thereof.  The Servicer shall be responsible for recording any such assumption or substitution agreements.  In connection with any such assumption or substitution agreement, no material term of the Home Equity Loan (including, without limitation, the required monthly payment on the related Home Equity Loan, the stated maturity, the outstanding principal amount or the Coupon Rate) shall be changed nor shall any required monthly payments of principal or interest be deferred or forgiven.  Any fee collected by the Servicer or the Sub-Servicer for consenting to any such conveyance or entering into an assumption or substitution agreement shall be retained by or paid to the Servicer as additional servicing compensation.

Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph or any other provision of this Agreement, the Servicer shall not be deemed to be in default, breach or any other violation of its obligations hereunder by reason of any assumption of a Home Equity Loan by operation of law or any assumption which the Servicer may be restricted by law from preventing, for any reason whatsoever.

Section 8.13.

Realization Upon Defaulted Home Equity Loans; Workout of Home Equity Loans.

(a)

The Servicer shall foreclose upon or otherwise comparably effect the ownership in the name of the Trustee on behalf of the Trust of Properties relating to defaulted Home Equity Loans as to which no satisfactory arrangements can be made for collection of Delinquent payments and which the Servicer has not purchased pursuant to Section 8.10(b).  In connection with such foreclosure or other conversion, the Servicer shall exercise such of the rights and powers vested in it hereunder, and use the same degree of care and skill in their exercise or use, as prudent mortgage lenders would exercise or use under the circumstances in the conduct of their own affairs and consistent with the servicing standards set forth in the FNMA Guide, including, but not limited to, advancing funds for the payment of taxes, amounts due with respect to Senior Liens, and insurance premiums.  Any amounts so advanced shall constitute “Servicing Advances” within the meaning of Section 8.09(b) hereof.  The Servicer shall sell any REO Property within 35 months from the close of the taxable year of its acquisition by the Trust, at such price as the Servicer in good faith deems necessary to comply with this covenant unless the Servicer obtains for the Trustee, an Opinion of Counsel (the expense of which opinion shall be a Servicing Advance) experienced in federal income tax matters acceptable to the Trustee, addressed to the Trustee and the Servicer, to the effect that the holding by the Trust of such REO Property for any greater period will not result in the imposition of taxes on “Prohibited Transactions” of the Trust or any REMIC as defined in Section 860F of the Code or cause any REMIC to fail to qualify as a REMIC under the REMIC Provisions at any time that any Certificates are Outstanding.  Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing provisions, the Servicer shall manage, conserve, protect and operate each REO Property for the Owners solely for the purpose of its prompt disposition and sale in a manner which does not cause such REO Property to fail to qualify as “foreclosure property” within the meaning of Section 860G(a)(8) of the Code or result in the receipt by any REMIC created hereunder of any “income from non-permitted assets” within the meaning of Section 860F(a)(2)(B) of the Code or any “net income from foreclosure property” which is subject to taxation under the REMIC Provisions.  Pursuant to its efforts to sell such REO Property, the Servicer shall either itself or through an agent selected by the Servicer protect and conserve such REO Property in the same manner and to such extent as is customary in the locality where such REO Property is located and may, incident to its conservation and protection of the interests of the Owners, rent the same, or any part thereof, as the Servicer deems to be in the best interest of the Owners for the period prior to the sale of such REO Property.  The Servicer shall take into account the existence of any hazardous substances, hazardous wastes or solid wastes, as such terms are defined in the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, or other federal, state or local environmental legislation, on a Property in determining whether to foreclose upon or otherwise comparably convert the ownership of such Property.  If the Servicer has actual knowledge of any environmental or hazardous waste risk with respect to the Property that the Servicer is contemplating acquiring in foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure, the Servicer will cause an environmental inspection of the Property in accordance with the servicing standards set forth in this Agreement.

(b)

The Servicer shall determine, with respect to each defaulted Home Equity Loan, when it has recovered, whether through trustee’s sale, foreclosure sale or otherwise, all amounts it expects to recover from or on account of such defaulted Home Equity Loan, whereupon such Home Equity Loan shall become a “Liquidated Loan.”

(c)

The Servicer shall not agree to any modification, waiver or amendment of any provision of any Home Equity Loan unless, in the Servicer’s good faith judgment, such modification, waiver or amendment would minimize the loss that might otherwise be experienced with respect to such Home Equity Loan and only in the event of a payment default with respect to such Home Equity Loan or in the event that a payment default with respect to such Home Equity Loan is reasonably foreseeable by the Servicer; provided, however, that no such modification, waiver or amendment shall extend the maturity date of such Home Equity Loan beyond the date that is six months after the latest Final Scheduled Distribution Date of all of the Classes of Offered Certificates remaining in the Trust.  Notwithstanding anything set out in this Section 8.13(c) or elsewhere in this Agreement to the contrary, the Servicer shall be permitted to modify, waive or amend any provision of a Home Equity Loan if required by statute or a court of competent jurisdiction to do so.

(d)

The Servicer has no intent to foreclose on any Mortgage based on the delinquency characteristics as of the Startup Day; provided, that the foregoing does not prevent the Servicer from initiating foreclosure proceedings on any date hereafter if the facts and circumstances of such Mortgage including delinquency characteristics in the Servicer’s discretion so warrant such action.

Section 8.14.

(b)

The Servicer shall have the right to accept applications of Mortgagors for consent to (i) partial releases of Mortgages, (ii) alterations and (iii) removal, demolition or division of Properties subject to Mortgages.  No application for approval shall be considered by the Servicer unless: (x) the provisions of the related Note and Mortgage have been complied with; (y) the Loan-to-Value Ratio and debt-to-income ratio after any release does not exceed the Loan-to-Value Ratio and debt-to-income ratio of such Note on the Cut-Off Date or Replacement Cut-Off Date, as applicable, and any increase in the Loan-to-Value Ratio shall not exceed 5%; and (z) the lien priority of the related Mortgage is not affected.  Upon receipt by the Trustee of an Officer’s Certificate executed on behalf of the Servicer setting forth the action proposed to be taken in respect of a particular Home Equity Loan and certifying that the criteria set forth in the immediately preceding sentence have been satisfied, the Trustee shall execute and deliver to the Servicer the consent or partial release so requested by the Servicer.  A proposed form of consent or partial release, as the case may be, shall accompany any Officer’s Certificate delivered by the Servicer pursuant to this paragraph.

(c)

From time to time and as appropriate in the servicing of any Home Equity Loan, including, without limitation, foreclosure or other comparable conversion of a Home Equity Loan or collection under any applicable Insurance Policy, the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, shall release the related File to the Servicer, promptly upon a written request of the Servicer, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit N, signed by an Authorized Officer, which states the purpose of the release of a File.  Such receipt shall obligate the Servicer to return the File to the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, when the need therefor by the Servicer no longer exists.

(d)

In all cases where the Servicer directs the Custodian, on behalf of the Trustee, to sign any document or to release a File within a particular period of time, the Servicer shall notify an Authorized Officer of the Trustee by telephone of such need and the Trustee shall thereon use its best efforts to comply with the Servicer’s needs, but in any event will comply within two Business Days of such request.

(ii)

If without the application, approval or consent of the Servicer, a proceeding shall be instituted in any court of competent jurisdiction, under any law relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or relief of debtors, seeking in respect of the Servicer an order for relief or an adjudication in bankruptcy, reorganization, dissolution, winding up, liquidation, a composition or arrangement with creditors, a readjustment of debts, the appointment of a trustee, receiver, liquidator or custodian or similar entity with respect to the Servicer or of all or any substantial part of its assets, or other like relief in respect thereof under any bankruptcy or insolvency law, and, if such proceeding is being contested by the Servicer in good faith, the same shall (A) result in the entry of an order for relief or any such adjudication or appointment or (B) continue undismissed or pending and unstayed for any period of seventy-five (75) consecutive days; or

(iii)

The Servicer shall fail to perform any one or more of its obligations hereunder and shall continue in default thereof for a period of thirty (30) days (one (1) Business Day in the case of a delay in making a payment or deposit required of the Servicer under this Agreement) which failure materially and adversely affects the Owners after the earlier of (a) actual knowledge of an officer of the Servicer or (b) receipt of notice from the Trustee of said failure; or

(iv)

The Servicer shall fail to cure any breach of any of its representations and warranties set forth in Section 3.02 or in the other Operative Documents which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Owners which remains unremedied for a period of sixty (60) days after the earlier of the Servicer’s discovery or receipt of notice thereof; or

(v)

(b)

Upon the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event, the Servicer shall continue to act as Servicer under this Agreement until removed as set forth in this Section 8.20 and a successor Servicer has assumed the servicing obligations.  After the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event, the Trustee or the Owners of at least [____]% Percentage Interest in all the Certificates may remove the Servicer by written notice to the Servicer.  Such termination shall be effective on the date specified in such notice, provided that a successor Servicer or the Trustee has assumed the servicing obligations. Upon the effective date of termination of the Servicer, the Trustee shall assume the servicing obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event pursuant to clause (iii) of section (a) above in connection with a failure by the Servicer to make a required Delinquency Advance, the Servicer will be deemed to have been immediately removed as Servicer and the Trustee will immediately become the successor Servicer.  The Trustee, in its capacity as successor Servicer, immediately will assume all of the obligations of the Servicer to make Delinquency Advances and the Trustee will assume the other duties of the Servicer as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 90 days after the Trustee becomes successor Servicer.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Trustee, in its capacity as successor Servicer, shall not be responsible for the lack of information and or documents that it cannot obtain through reasonable efforts.  Until a successor Servicer has been appointed, the Trustee shall be the successor Servicer in all respects without further action, and all authority and power of the Servicer under this Agreement shall pass to and be vested in the Trustee on and after the effective date of termination.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in no event shall the Trustee be liable for any Servicing Fee or for any differential in the amount of the Servicing Fee paid hereunder and the amount necessary to induce any successor Servicer to act as successor Servicer under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for herein.

(e)

No removal or resignation of the Servicer shall become effective until the Trustee or a successor Servicer shall have assumed the Servicer’s responsibilities and obligations in accordance with this Section.

(f)

Upon removal or resignation of the Servicer, the Servicer at its own expense also shall promptly deliver or cause to be delivered to a successor Servicer or the Trustee all the books and records (including, without limitation, records kept in electronic form) that the Servicer has maintained for the Home Equity Loans, including all tax bills, assessment notices, insurance premium notices and all other documents as well as all original documents then in the Servicer’s possession.

(h)

Upon removal or resignation of the Servicer, the Trustee (A) may, solicit bids for a successor Servicer as described below and (B) until such time as another successor Servicer is appointed by the Trustee, shall assume the duties and obligations of the Servicer hereunder.  The Trustee agrees to act as Servicer during the solicitation process and shall assume all duties and obligations of the Servicer.  The Trustee shall, if it is unable to obtain a qualifying bid and is prevented by law from acting as Servicer, appoint, or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint, any housing and home finance institution, bank or mortgage servicing institution which has been designated as an approved seller-servicer by FNMA or FHLMC for first and second home equity loans and having equity of not less than $5,000,000, as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, act as the successor to the Servicer hereunder in the assumption of all or any part of the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of the Servicer hereunder.  The compensation of any successor Servicer (other than the Trustee in its capacity as successor Servicer) so appointed shall be the amount agreed to between the successor Servicer and the Trustee (up to a maximum of [____]% per annum on the outstanding principal balance of each Home Equity Loan), together with the other servicing compensation in the form of assumption fees, late payment charges or otherwise as provided in Sections 8.08 and 8.15; provided, however, that if the Trustee becomes the successor Servicer it shall receive as its compensation the same compensation paid to the Servicer immediately prior to the Servicer’s removal or resignation; provided, further, however, that the predecessor Servicer agrees to pay to the Trustee or other successor Servicer at such time that it becomes such successor Servicer a set-up fee of twenty-five dollars ($25) for each Home Equity Loan then included in the Trust Estate.  The amount payable in excess of twenty-five dollars ($25) per Home Equity Loan, if any, shall be payable to the successor Servicer and reimbursable pursuant to Section 7.03(b) clause C.29 hereof.  The Trustee shall be obligated to serve as successor Servicer whether or not the fee described in this section is paid by the Servicer, but shall in any event be entitled to receive, and to enforce payment of, such fee from the Servicer.

(i)

In the event the Trustee elects to solicit bids as provided above, the Trustee shall solicit, by public announcement, bids from housing and home finance institutions, banks and mortgage servicing institutions meeting the qualifications set forth above.  Such public announcement shall specify that the successor Servicer shall be entitled to servicing compensation in accordance with clause (h) above, together with the other servicing compensation in the form of assumption fees, late payment charges or otherwise as provided in Sections 8.08 and 8.15.  Within thirty days after any such public announcement, the Trustee shall negotiate and effect the sale, transfer and assignment of the servicing rights and responsibilities hereunder to the qualified party submitting the highest satisfactory bid as to the price it will pay to obtain servicing.  The Trustee shall deduct from any sum received by the Trustee from the successor to the Servicer in respect of such sale, transfer and assignment all costs and expenses of any public announcement and of any sale, transfer and assignment of the servicing rights and responsibilities hereunder.  After such deductions, the remainder of such sum less any amounts due the Trustee or the Trust from the Servicer shall be paid by the Trustee to the predecessor Servicer at the time of such sale, transfer and assignment to the Servicer’s successor.

(j)

The Trustee and such successor Servicer shall take such action, consistent with this Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession, including the notification to all Mortgagors of the transfer of servicing.  The predecessor Servicer agrees to cooperate with the Trustee and any successor Servicer in effecting the termination of the predecessor Servicer’s servicing responsibilities and rights hereunder and shall promptly provide the Trustee or such successor Servicer, as applicable, all documents and records reasonably requested by it to enable it to assume the Servicer’s functions hereunder and shall promptly also transfer to the Trustee or such successor Servicer, as applicable, all amounts which then have been or should have been deposited in the Principal and Interest Account by the Servicer or which are thereafter received with respect to the Home Equity Loans.  Any amounts and documents which are property of the Trust held by the predecessor Servicer shall be held in trust on behalf of the Trustee until transferred to the successor Servicer or Trustee.  Neither the Trustee nor any other successor Servicer shall be held liable by reason of any failure to make, or any delay in making, any distribution hereunder or any portion thereof caused by (i) the failure of the Servicer to deliver, or any delay in delivering, cash, documents or records to it, or (ii) restrictions imposed by any regulatory authority having jurisdiction over the Servicer.  If the Servicer resigns or is replaced hereunder, the Servicer agrees to reimburse the Trust and the Owners for the costs and expenses associated with the transfer of servicing to the replacement Servicer, but subject to a maximum reimbursement to all such parties in the amount of twenty-five dollars ($25) for each Home Equity Loan then included in the Trust Estate.  The amount payable in excess of twenty-five dollars ($25) per Home Equity Loan, if any, shall be payable to the successor Servicer and reimbursable pursuant to Section 7.03(b) clause C.29 hereof.

(k)

The Trustee or any other successor Servicer, upon assuming the duties of Servicer hereunder, shall immediately (i) record all assignments of Home Equity Loans not previously recorded in the name of the Trustee pursuant to Section 3.05(b)(ii) as a result of an Opinion of Counsel and (ii) make all Delinquency Advances and Compensating Interest payments and deposit them to the Principal and Interest Account which the Servicer has theretofore failed to remit with respect to the Home Equity Loans.

(m)

The Trustee shall give notice to the Depositor, the Owners, the Seller, and the Rating Agencies of the occurrence of any event described in paragraph (a) above of which the Trustee is aware.

(n)

Upon appointment, the successor Servicer shall be the successor in all respects to the predecessor Servicer and shall be subject to all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities of the predecessor Servicer including, but not limited to, the maintenance of the hazard insurance policy(ies), the fidelity bond and an errors and omissions policy pursuant to Section 8.21(b) and shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee and all of the rights granted to the predecessor Servicer by the terms and provisions of this Agreement.  The appointment of a successor Servicer shall not affect any liability of the predecessor Servicer which may have arisen under this Agreement prior to its termination as Servicer (including, without limitation, any deductible under an insurance policy) nor shall any successor Servicer be liable for any acts or omissions of the predecessor Servicer or for any breach by such Servicer of any of its representations or warranties contained herein or in any related document or agreement.

(o)

The Trustee shall be entitled to be reimbursed pursuant to Sections 7.03(b) for all Transition Expenses (other than amounts reimbursed pursuant to paragraph (j) above), including, without limitation, any costs or expenses associated with the complete transfer of all servicing data and the completion, correction or manipulation of such servicing data as may be required by the Trustee to correct any errors or insufficiencies in the servicing data or otherwise to enable the Trustee to service the Home Equity Loans properly and effectively.

(b)

The Servicer (including the Trustee if it shall become the Servicer hereunder) agrees to maintain errors and omissions coverage and a fidelity bond, each at least to the extent required by Section 305 of Part I of FNMA Guide or any successor provision thereof; provided, however, that in the event that the fidelity bond or the errors and omissions coverage is no longer in effect, the Servicer shall notify the Trustee and the Owners.

Additional Servicing Responsibilities for Second Mortgage Loans.

The Servicer shall file (or cause to be filed) a request for notice of any action by a superior lienholder under a superior lien for the protection of the Trustee’s interest, where permitted by local law and whenever applicable state law does not require that a junior lienholder be named as a party defendant in foreclosure proceedings in order to foreclose such junior lienholder’s equity of redemption.

If the Servicer is notified that any superior lienholder has accelerated or intends to accelerate the obligations under a Senior Lien, or has declared or intends to declare a default under the mortgage or the promissory note secured thereby, or has filed or intends to file an election to have the mortgaged property sold or foreclosed, the Servicer shall take, on behalf of the Trust, whatever actions are necessary to protect the interests of the Owners, and/or to preserve the security of the related Home Equity Loan, subject to the application of the REMIC Provisions.  The Servicer shall advance the necessary funds to cure the default or reinstate the Senior Lien, if such advance is in the best interests of the Owners; provided, however, that no such additional advance need be made if such advance would be nonrecoverable from Liquidation Proceeds on the related Home Equity Loan.  The Servicer shall thereafter take such action as is necessary to recover the amount so advanced.  Any expenses incurred by the Servicer pursuant to this Section 8.22 shall be Servicing Advances.

Section 8.23.

Section 8.28.

Reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(a)

The Trustee and the Servicer shall reasonably cooperate with the Depositor in connection with the Trust’s satisfying the reporting requirements under the Exchange Act. The Trustee shall prepare on behalf of the Trust any Form 8-K and Form 10-K customary for securities similar to the Offered Certificates as required by the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder, and shall file (via the Commission’s Electronic Data Gathering and Retrieval System (“EDGAR”)) such forms on behalf of the Trust. The Depositor hereby grants to the Trustee a limited power of attorney to execute and file such Form 8-K filings on behalf of the Trust but only to the extent no accompanying Certification is required to be filed in relation thereto on behalf of the Trust, the Depositor or the Servicer. Such power of attorney shall continue until the earlier of (i) receipt by the Trustee from the Depositor of written termination of such power of attorney and (ii) the termination of the Trust. If Certifications shall be required with respect to such Form 8-K filings, the Depositor or the Servicer, as appropriate, shall sign such filings and any Certification required to be made in relation thereto. The Depositor or the Servicer, as appropriate, shall sign any Form 10-K on behalf of the Trust and the appropriate Certification required with respect thereto. The Trustee shall file any Form 8-K and Form 10-K filings for the Trust promptly upon receiving the duly signed forms and related Certifications from the Depositor or the Servicer, as the case may be. As used in this Section 8.28, the term “Certification” means a certification required by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Commission’s rules and regulations thereunder including similar certifications that may be required with respect to Form 8-K or other filings that are or may be made on behalf of the Trust.

(b)

The Trustee shall file each Form 8-K filing within 15 days after each Distribution Date, with a copy of the statement to the Certificateholders for such Distribution Date as an exhibit thereto.  Prior to March 31 of each year, commencing in 200_, or such earlier date as may be required by the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission, the Trustee shall file a Form 10-K on behalf of the Trust, in substance as required by applicable law or applicable Commission staff’s interpretations. Such Form 10-K shall include as exhibits the Servicer’s annual statement of compliance described under Section 8.16 and the accountant’s report described under Section 8.17, in each case to the extent they have been timely delivered to the Trustee. If they are not so timely delivered, the Trustee shall file the duly signed Form 10-K without them, but shall file a duly signed amended Form 10-K including such documents as exhibits reasonably promptly after they are delivered to the Trustee. The Trustee shall have no liability with respect to any failure to properly prepare or file such periodic reports resulting from or relating to the Trustee’s inability or failure to obtain any information not resulting from its own negligence, willful misconduct, or reckless disregard of its duties under this Section 8.28. The Form 10-K shall also include a Certification in the form attached hereto as Exhibit O, which shall be signed by the senior officer of the Servicer in charge of the servicing function, and which the Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee, together with the signed Form 10-K, prior to March 20th of each year in which a Form 10-K is required to be filed with respect to the Trust (or if March 20th is not a Business Day, the immediately preceding Business Day).

(c)

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein and provided that the foregoing reporting arrangements and responsibilities are permissible under applicable law and otherwise acceptable to the Commission, the Trustee, prior to March 20th of each year in which a Form 10-K is required to be filed with respect to the Trust (or if such day is not a Business Day, the immediately preceding Business Day), shall sign and deliver to the Depositor (or the Servicer, if the Servicer is signing the Certifica­tion included in the Form 10-K) a certification (in the form attached hereto as Exhibit P) for the benefit of the Depositor (or the Servicer) and its officers, directors and Affiliates regarding certain aspects of items 1 through 3 of the Certification included in the Form 10-K.

(d)

In addition, the Trustee shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor and the Servicer and the officers, directors and Affiliates of each of them from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon a breach of the Trustee’s obligations under Section 8.28(c) or the Trustee’s negligence, bad faith, willful misconduct or reckless disregard for its obligations and duties in connection therewith. If the indemnification provided for herein is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless such Persons, then the Trustee, in connection with a breach of the Trustee’s obligations under Section 8.28(c) or the Trustee’s negligence, bad faith, willful misconduct or reckless disregard of its duties in connection therewith, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Persons as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities of such Persons in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Depositor or Servicer on the one hand and the Trustee on the other.

(e)

Prior to March 20th of each year in which a Form 10-K is required to be filed with respect to the Trust, the Servicer shall sign and deliver to the Depositor and the Trustee a certification in the form attached hereto as Exhibit Q for the benefit of the Depositor and the Trustee and the officers, directors and Affiliates of each of them as to certain aspects of items 4 and 5 of the Certification included in the Form 10-K. In addition, the Servicer shall indemnify and hold harmless the Depositor and the Trustee and the officers, directors and Affiliates of each of them from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon a breach of the Servicer’s obligations under Section 7.09(b), Section 8.08(f), Section 8.16 and Section 8.17 (including the inaccuracy of any of the items required to be delivered pursuant to Section 7.09(b), Section 8.08(f), Section 8.16 or Section 8.17) or this Section 8.28(e), or the Servicer’s negligence, bad faith, willful misconduct or reckless disregard for its obligations and duties in connection therewith, except to the extent caused by the negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of the Trustee. If the indemnification provided for herein is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless the Depositor or the Trustee, as the case may be, then the Servicer, in connection with a breach of the Servicer’s obligations under Section 7.09(b), Section 8.08(f), Section 8.16 or Section 8.17 (including the inaccuracy of any of the items required to be delivered pursuant to Section 8.16 or Section 8.17) or this Section 8.28(e), or the Servicer’s negligence, bad faith, willful misconduct or reckless disregard of its duties in connection therewith, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the Depositor or the Trustee, as the case may be, as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities of the Depositor or the Trustee, as the case may be, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Depositor or the Trustee, as the case may be, on the one hand and the Servicer on the other. The Servicer acknowledges that the Depositor and the Trustee are relying on the Servicer’s performance of its obligations under Section 7.09(b), 8.08(f), Section 8.16, Section 8.17 and this Section 8.28(e) in order to perform their respective obligations under this Section 8.28.

(f)

Upon any filing with the Commission, the Trustee shall promptly deliver to the Servicer and the Depositor a copy of any such executed report, statement or information.

(g)

If the Commission issues additional interpretative guidance or promulgates additional rules or regulations, or if other changes in applicable law occur, that would require the reporting arrangements, or the allocation of responsibilities with respect thereto, described in this Section 8.28, to be conducted differently than as described, the Depositor, Servicer and Trustee will reasonably cooperate to amend the provisions of this Section in order to comply with such amended reporting requirements and such amendment of this Section. Any such amendment shall be made in accordance with Section 11.14 without further consent of the Owners, and may result in the reduction of the reports filed by the Trustee on behalf of the Trust under the Exchange Act. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Depositor, Servicer and Trustee shall not be obligated to enter into any amendment pursuant to this Section that adversely affects its obligations and immunities under this Agreement.

(h)

Prior to January 30th of the first year in which it is able to do so, the Trustee shall file a Form 15D Suspension Notification with respect to the Trust to suspend the further filing of periodic reports.

(i)

In filing any Form 8-K or Form 10-K, the Trustee shall not undertake any analysis of, and shall have no responsibility for, any financial information, accountant’s report, certification or other matter contained therein, except for computations performed by the Trustee and reflected in distribution reports.  Nothing in this Section 8.28(i) shall relieve the Trustee of its responsibility for the matters as to which it is certifying in the form attached hereto as Exhibit P.

(j)

The Depositor shall indemnify and hold harmless the Trustee and its officers, directors and Affiliates from and against any losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, reasonable and necessary legal fees and related costs, judgments and other costs and expenses arising out of or based upon a breach of the Depositor’s obligations under this Section 8.28, or the Depositor’s gross negligence, bad faith, willful misconduct or reckless disregard for its obligations and duties in connection therewith, except to the extent caused by the negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of the Trustee. If the indemnification provided for herein is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless the Trustee, then the Depositor, in connection with a breach of the Depositor’s obligations under this Section 8.28, or the Depositor’s gross negligence, bad faith, willful misconduct or reckless disregard of its duties in connection therewith, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the Trustee as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities of the Trustee in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Trustee on the one hand and the Depositor on the other. The Depositor acknowledges that the Trustee is relying on the Depositor’s performance of its obligations under this Section 8.28 in order to perform its respective obligations under this Section 8.28.

Section 8.29.

Advance Facility.

(a)

The Servicer is hereby authorized to enter into a facility (an “Advance Facility”) with any Person which provides that such Person (an “Advancing Person”) agrees to fund some or all of the Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances required to be made by the Servicer pursuant to this Agreement or that the Servicer may pledge or assign its rights to be reimbursed for Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances, directly or indirectly, to an Advancing Person, although no such Advance Facility shall reduce or otherwise affect the Servicer’s obligation to fund such Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances.  If the Servicer enters into an Advance Facility, the Servicer and the related Advancing Person shall deliver to the Trustee at the address set forth in Section 11.19 hereof a written notice (an “Advance Facility Notice”), stating the identity of the Advancing Person.  If the Servicer enters into such an Advance Facility pursuant to this Section 8.29, upon reasonable request of the Advancing Person, the Trustee shall execute a letter of acknowledgment prepared by the Servicer, confirming its receipt of notice of the existence of such Advance Facility.  To the extent that an Advancing Person previously identified in the Advance Facility Notice funds any Delinquency Advance or any Servicing Advance and the Servicer provides the Trustee with an Officer’s Certificate that such Advancing Person is entitled to reimbursement, such Advancing Person shall be entitled to receive reimbursement pursuant to this Agreement for such amount to the extent provided in Section 8.29(c).  Such Officer’s Certificate must specify the amount of the reimbursement, the remittance date, the written payment instructions for the Advancing Person, the Section of this Agreement that permits the applicable Delinquency Advance or Servicing Advance to be reimbursed and either the section(s) of the Advance Facility that entitle the Advancing Person to receive reimbursement from the Trustee, rather than the Servicer, or proof of an Event of Default by the Servicer under the Advance Facility entitling the Advancing Person to reimbursement from the Trustee.  The Trustee shall have no duty or liability with respect to any calculation of any reimbursement to be paid to an Advancing Person and shall be entitled to conclusively rely without independent investigation on the Officer’s Certificate provided pursuant to this Section 8.29.  An Advancing Person whose obligations hereunder are limited to the funding of Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances, or who merely receives an assignment or pledge of the Servicer’s rights to be reimbursed for Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances, shall not be required to meet the qualifications of the Servicer or any Sub-Servicer and will not be deemed to be a Sub-Servicer under this Agreement.

(b)

None of the Depositor or the Trustee shall, as a result of the existence of any Advance Facility, have any additional duty or liability with respect to the calculation or payment of any reimbursement for Delinquency Advances or Servicing Advances, nor, as a result of the existence of any Advance Facility, shall the Depositor or the Trustee have any additional responsibility to track or monitor the administration of the Advance Facility or the reimbursement for Delinquency Advances or Servicing Advances, except to remit reimbursements in accordance with payment instructions received pursuant to Section 8.29(a).  The Servicer shall indemnify the Depositor, the Trustee, any successor Servicer, any Owner and the Trust for any claim, loss, liability or damage resulting from any claim by the Advancing Person, except to the extent that such claim, loss, liability or damage resulted from or arose out of the gross negligence, recklessness or willful misconduct on the part of the Depositor, the Trustee, any successor Servicer or any Owner, as the case may be, or failure by the successor Servicer or the Trustee, as the case may be, to remit funds as required by this Agreement or the commission of an act or omission to act by the successor Servicer or the Trustee, as the case may be, and the passage of any applicable cure or grace period, such that a Servicer Termination Event under this Agreement occurs or such entity is subject to termination for cause under this Agreement.

(c)

If an Advance Facility is entered into, and if the Servicer so notifies the Trustee, then the Servicer shall not seek reimbursement for any Delinquency Advance or Servicing Advance made by an Advancing Person under Section 7.03(b) clause C.29, Section 8.08(d)(D) and (E) and Section 8.09, but instead the Servicer shall remit the amounts relating to Advances to the Trustee in the monthly remittance made to the Trustee on a Monthly Remittance Date in accordance with this Agreement.  The Trustee, upon its receipt of an Officer’s Certificate in accordance with Section 8.29 hereof, shall pay to the Advancing Person or to a trustee, agent or custodian designated in the Officer’s Certificate specified in Section 8.29(a), reimbursements for Delinquency Advances and Servicing Advances from the Certificate Account to the same extent the Servicer would have been permitted to reimburse itself from the Principal and Interest Account for such Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances in accordance with Section 7.03(b) clause C.29, Sections 8.08(d)(D) and (E) and Section 8.09, as the case may be, had the Servicer itself funded such Delinquency Advance or Servicing Advance.

(d)

All Delinquency Advances and Servicing Advances made pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be deemed made and shall be reimbursed on a “first in-first out” (FIFO) basis, such that an advance made earlier in time with respect to any Home Equity Loan shall be reimbursed to the Servicer who made that advance, before reimbursement of an advance made later in time with respect to that Home Equity Loan, and a predecessor Servicer’s advances with respect to any particular Home Equity Loan shall be reimbursed before reimbursement of a successor Servicer’s advances with respect to such Home Equity Loan.

(e)

In making its determination that any Delinquency Advance or Servicing Advance theretofore made has become a Nonrecoverable Advance, the Servicer shall apply the same criteria in making such determination regardless of whether such Delinquency Advance or Servicing Advance shall have been made by the Servicer or any predecessor Servicer.

(f)

The Servicer shall maintain and provide to any successor Servicer and, upon request, the Trustee a detailed accounting on a loan-by-loan basis as to amounts advanced by, pledged or assigned to, and reimbursed to any Advancing Person.  The successor Servicer shall be entitled to rely on any such information provided by the predecessor Servicer, and the successor Servicer shall not be liable for any errors in such information.

(g)

Any amendment to this Section 8.29 or to any other provision of this Agreement that may be necessary or appropriate to effect the terms of an Advance Facility as described generally in this Section 8.29, including amendments to add provisions relating to a successor Servicer, may be entered into by the Depositor, the Sellers, the Trustee and the Servicer without the consent of any Certificateholder, provided that such amendment complies with Section 11.14.  All reasonable costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) of each party hereto of any such amendment shall be borne solely by the Servicer.  The parties hereto hereby acknowledge and agree that:  (a) the Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances financed by and/or pledged to an Advancing Person under any Advance Facility are obligations owed to the Servicer payable only from the cash flows and proceeds received under this Agreement for reimbursement of Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances only to the extent provided herein, and the Trustee and the Trust are not, as a result of the existence of any Advance Facility, separately obligated or liable to repay any Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances financed by the Advancing Person; (b) the Servicer will be responsible for remitting to the Advancing Person the applicable amounts collected by it as reimbursement for Delinquency Advances and/or Servicing Advances funded by the Advancing Person, subject to the provisions of this Agreement and except to the extent an election is made to remit all such reimbursements to the Trustee as described in Section 8.29(c); and (c) the Trustee shall not have any responsibility to track or monitor the administration of the financing arrangement between the Servicer and any Advancing Person.

(g)

Promptly following any purchase described in Section 9.02(a), the Trustee will release the Files to the Owner of the Class X-IO Certificates or other purchaser of the Home Equity Loans, as the case may be, or otherwise upon their order, in a manner similar to that described in Section 8.14 hereof.  The Owner of the Class X-IO Certificates or other purchaser of the Home Equity Loans, as the case may be, will promptly prepare and record assignments of Mortgages from the Trustee to the appropriate person.

Money held by the Trustee in trust hereunder need not be segregated from other trust funds except to the extent required herein or required by law.  The Trustee shall be under no liability for interest on any money received by it hereunder except as otherwise agreed with the Depositor and except to the extent of income or other gain on investments which are deposits in or certificates of deposit of the Trustee in its commercial capacity and income or other gain actually received by the Trustee on Eligible Investments.

Section 10.07.

Compensation and Reimbursement.

As compensation for its services hereunder, the Trustee shall be entitled to receive the Trustee Fee, any investment income or other benefit derived from funds or Eligible Investments in the Certificate Account to the extent permitted by Section 7.05(c), and such other amounts as separately agreed with the Seller.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the Trustee and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee shall be indemnified by the Trust and held harmless against any loss, liability, or “unanticipated out-of-pocket” expense incurred or paid to third parties (which expenses shall not include salaries paid to employees, or allocable overhead, of the Trustee) in connection with or any claim or legal action or any pending or threatened claim or legal action arising out of or in connection with the acceptance or administration of its trusts hereunder or the Certificates (including but not limited to the provisions of Section 3.07 hereof), other than any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of duties hereunder or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder.  All such amounts described in the preceding sentence shall constitute Trustee Reimbursable Expenses.  It is understood by the parties hereto that a “claim” as used in this paragraph includes any claim for indemnification made by the Custodian under the applicable provisions of the Custodial Agreement.  The Trustee and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee shall be indemnified by the Seller and held harmless against any loss, liability or reasonable expenses incurred by the Trustee in performing its duties as Tax Matters Person for the REMICs created under this Agreement, other than any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of willful misfeasance, negligence or bad faith.  When the Trustee incurs expenses or provides services after the occurrence of a default and the commencement of a voluntary or involuntary case under Title 11 of the United States Code or any other applicable federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law involving any of the Sellers or the Servicer, the expenses and fees for such services are intended to constitute expenses of administration under such laws.  The provisions of this Section 10.07 shall survive the resignation or removal of the Trustee and the termination of this Agreement.

Section 10.08.

Corporate Trustee Required; Eligibility.

There shall at all times be a Trustee hereunder which shall be a corporation or association organized and doing business under the laws of the United States of America or of any state authorized under such laws to exercise corporate trust powers, having a combined capital and surplus of at least $50,000,000 subject to supervision or examination by the United States of America, or any state and having a deposit rating of at least A- by Standard & Poor’s, A2 by Moody’s and, if rated by Fitch, A by Fitch.  If such Trustee publishes reports of condition at least annually, pursuant to law or to the requirements of the aforesaid supervising or examining authority, then for the purposes of this Section, the combined capital and surplus of such corporation or association shall be deemed to be its combined capital and surplus as set forth in its most recent report of condition so published.  If at any time the Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of this Section, it shall resign immediately in the manner and with the effect hereinafter specified in this Article X.

Section 10.09.

Resignation and Removal; Appointment of Successor.

(a)

No resignation or removal of the Trustee and no appointment of a successor Trustee pursuant to this Article X shall become effective until the acceptance of appointment by the successor Trustee under Section 10.10 hereof.

(b)

The Trustee, or any trustee or trustees hereafter appointed, may resign at any time by giving written notice of resignation to the Depositor and the Seller and by mailing notice of resignation by first-class mail, postage prepaid, to the Owners at their addresses appearing on the Register.  A copy of such notice shall be sent by the resigning Trustee to the Rating Agencies.  Upon receiving notice of resignation, the Depositor shall promptly appoint a successor Trustee or Trustees by written instrument, in duplicate, executed on behalf of the Trust by an Authorized Officer of the Depositor, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the Trustee so resigning and one copy to the successor Trustee or Trustees.  If no successor Trustee shall have been appointed and have accepted appointment within 30 days after the giving of such notice of resignation, the resigning Trustee may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Trustee, or any Owner may, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, petition any such court for the appointment of a successor Trustee.  Such court may thereupon, after such notice, if any, as it may deem proper and appropriate, appoint a successor Trustee.

(c)

If at any time the Trustee shall cease to be eligible under Section 10.08 hereof and shall fail to resign after written request therefor by the Depositor, the Depositor may remove the Trustee and appoint a successor Trustee by written instrument, in duplicate, executed on behalf of the Trust by an Authorized Officer of the Depositor, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the Trustee so removed and one copy to the successor Trustee.

(d)

The Owners of a majority of the Voting Rights represented by the Offered Certificates, or, if there are no Offered Certificates then Outstanding, by such majority of the Voting Rights represented by the Class X-IO and Class R Certificates, may at any time remove the Trustee and appoint a successor Trustee by delivering to the Trustee to be removed, to the successor Trustee so appointed, to the Depositor and to the Servicer, copies of the record of the act taken by the Owners, as provided for in Section 11.03 hereof.

(e)

[Reserved].

(f)

If the Trustee shall resign, be removed or become incapable of acting, or if a vacancy shall occur in the office of the Trustee for any cause, the Depositor shall promptly appoint a successor Trustee.  If within one year after such resignation, removal or incapability or the occurrence of such vacancy, a successor Trustee shall be appointed by act of the Owners of a majority of the Percentage Interests represented by the Offered Certificates then Outstanding, the successor Trustee so appointed shall forthwith upon its acceptance of such appointment become the successor Trustee and supersede the successor Trustee appointed by the Depositor.  If no successor Trustee shall have been so appointed by the Depositor or the Owners and shall have accepted appointment in the manner hereinafter provided, any Owner may, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Trustee.  Such court may thereupon, after such notice, if any, as it may deem proper and prescribe, appoint a successor Trustee.

(g)

The Servicer shall give notice of any removal of the Trustee by mailing notice of such event by first-class mail, postage prepaid, to the Rating Agencies and to the Owners as their names and addresses appear in the Register.  Each notice shall include the name of the successor Trustee and the address of its corporate trust office.

Section 10.10.

Acceptance of Appointment by Successor Trustee.

Every successor Trustee appointed hereunder shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Depositor on behalf of the Trust and to its predecessor Trustee an instrument accepting such appointment hereunder and stating its eligibility to serve as Trustee hereunder, and thereupon the resignation or removal of the predecessor Trustee shall become effective and such successor Trustee, without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall become vested with all the rights, powers, trusts, duties and obligations of its predecessor hereunder; but, on request of the Depositor or the successor Trustee, such predecessor Trustee shall, upon payment of its charges then unpaid, execute and deliver an instrument transferring to such successor Trustee all of the rights, powers and trusts of the Trustee so ceasing to act, and shall duly assign, transfer and deliver to such successor Trustee all property and money held by such Trustee so ceasing to act hereunder.  Upon request of any such successor Trustee, the Depositor on behalf of the Trust shall execute any and all instruments for more fully and certainly vesting in and confirming to such successor Trustee all such rights, powers and trusts.

Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor Trustee as provided in this Section, the Depositor shall mail notice thereof by first-class mail, postage prepaid, to the Owners at their last addresses appearing upon the Register.  The Depositor shall send a copy of such notice to the Rating Agencies.  If the Depositor fails to mail such notice within ten days after acceptance of appointment by the successor Trustee, the successor Trustee shall cause such notice to be mailed at the expense of the Trust.

No successor Trustee shall accept its appointment unless at the time of such acceptance such successor shall be qualified and eligible under this Article X.

Section 10.11.

Merger, Conversion, Consolidation or Succession to Business of the Trustee.

Any corporation or association into which the Trustee may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation or association resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Trustee shall be a party, or any corporation or association succeeding to all or substantially all of the corporate trust business of the Trustee, shall be the successor of the Trustee hereunder, without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto; provided, however, that such corporation or association shall be otherwise qualified and eligible under this Article X.  In case any Certificates have been executed, but not delivered, by the Trustee then in office, any successor by merger, conversion or consolidation to such Trustee may adopt such execution and deliver the Certificates so executed with the same effect as if such successor Trustee had itself executed such Certificates.

Section 10.12.

Reporting; Withholding.

(a)

The Trustee shall timely provide to the Owners the Internal Revenue Service’s Form 1099 and any other statement required by applicable Treasury regulations as determined by the Tax Matters Person, and shall withhold, as required by applicable law, federal, state or local taxes, if any, applicable to distributions to the Owners, including but not limited to backup withholding under Section 3406 of the Code and the withholding tax on distributions to foreign investors under Sections 1441 and 1442 of the Code.

(b)

As required by law or upon request of the Tax Matters Person and except as otherwise specifically set forth in (a) preceding, the Trustee shall timely file all reports prepared by the Seller and required to be filed by the Trust, including other reports that must be filed with the Owners, such as the Internal Revenue Service’s Form 1066 and Schedule Q. The Trustee shall, upon written request of the Seller, collect any forms or reports from the Owners determined by the Seller to be required under applicable federal, state and local tax laws.

(c)

Except as otherwise provided, the Trustee shall have the responsibility for preparation and execution of those returns, forms, reports and other documents referred to in this Section.

(d)

The Seller covenants and agrees that it shall provide to the Trustee any information necessary to enable the Trustee to meet its obligations under subsections (a), (b) and (c) above.

Section 10.13.

Indemnification and Liability of the Trustee.

The Trustee shall be liable in accordance herewith only to the extent of the obligations specifically imposed upon and undertaken by the Trustee herein.  Neither the Trustee nor any of the directors, officers, employees or agents of the Trustee shall be under any liability on any Certificate or otherwise to the Certificate Account, the Depositor, the Sellers, the Servicer or any Owner for any action taken or for refraining from the taking of any action in good faith pursuant to this Agreement, or for errors in judgment; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect the Trustee, its directors, officers, employees or agents or any such Person against any liability which would otherwise be imposed by reason of negligent action, negligent failure to act or willful misconduct in the performance of duties or by reason of reckless disregard of obligations and duties hereunder.  Subject to the foregoing sentence, the Trustee shall not be liable for losses on investments of amounts in the Certificate Account (except for any losses on obligations on which the bank serving as Trustee is the obligor).  In addition, the Depositor and CHEC covenant and agree to indemnify the Trustee and the Servicer (if the Servicer is also the Trustee) and their officers, directors, agents and employees from, and hold it harmless against, any and all losses, liabilities, damages, claims or expenses (including legal fees and expenses) of whatsoever kind arising out of or in connection with the performance of its duties hereunder other than those resulting from negligence or bad faith.  The Trustee and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Trustee may conclusively rely and shall be fully protected in acting or refraining from acting in good faith on any certificate, notice or other document of any kind prima facie properly executed and submitted by the Authorized Officer of any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder.  The provisions of this Section 10.13 shall survive the resignation or removal of the Trustee, termination of this Agreement and the payment of the outstanding Certificates.  When the Trustee incurs expenses or provides services after the occurrence of a default and the commencement of a voluntary or involuntary case under Title 11 of the United States Code or any other applicable federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law involving the Sellers or the Servicer, the expenses and fees for such services are intended to constitute expenses of administration under such laws.  In no event shall the Trustee be liable for special, indirect or consequential damages.

Section 10.14.

Appointment of Co-Trustee or Separate Trustee.

Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, at any time, for the purpose of meeting any legal requirements of any jurisdiction in which any part of the Trust Estate or Property may at the time be located, the Servicer and the Trustee acting jointly shall have the power and shall execute and deliver all instruments to appoint one or more Persons approved by the Trustee to act as co-Trustee or co-Trustees, jointly with the Trustee, of all or any part of the Trust Estate or separate Trustee or separate Trustees of any part of the Trust Estate, and to vest in such Person or Persons, in such capacity and for the benefit of the Owners, such title to the Trust Estate, or any part thereof, and, subject to the other provisions of this Section 10.14, such powers, duties, obligations, rights and trusts as the Servicer and the Trustee may consider necessary or desirable.  If the Servicer shall not have joined in such appointment within 15 days after the receipt by it of a request so to do, or in the case any event indicated in Section 8.20(a) shall have occurred and be continuing, the Trustee alone shall have the power to make such appointment.  No co-Trustee or separate Trustee hereunder shall be required to meet the terms of eligibility as a successor Trustee under Section 10.08 and no notice to Owner of the appointment of any co-Trustee or separate Trustee shall be required under Section 10.09.

Every separate Trustee and co-Trustee shall, to the extent permitted, be appointed and act subject to the following provisions and conditions:

(i)

All rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Trustee shall be conferred or imposed upon and exercised or performed by the Trustee and such separate Trustee or co-Trustee jointly (it being understood that such separate Trustee or co-Trustee is not authorized to act separately without the Trustee joining in such act), except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed (whether as Trustee hereunder or as successor to the Servicer hereunder), the Trustee shall be incompetent or unqualified to perform such act or acts, in which event such rights, powers, duties and obligations (including the holding of title to the Trust Estate or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed singly by such separate Trustee or co-Trustee, but solely at the direction of the Trustee;

(ii)

No co-Trustee hereunder shall be held personally liable by reason of any act or omission of any other co-Trustee hereunder; and

(iii)

The Servicer and the Trustee acting jointly may at any time accept the resignation of or remove any separate Trustee or co-Trustee.

Any notice, request or other writing given to the Trustee shall be deemed to have been given to each of the then separate Trustees and co-Trustees, as effectively as if given to each of them.  Every instrument appointing any separate Trustee or co-Trustee shall refer to this Agreement and the conditions of this Section 10.14.  Each separate Trustee and co-Trustee, upon its acceptance of the trusts conferred, shall be vested with the estates or property specified in its instrument of appointment, either jointly with the Trustee or separately, as may be provided therein, subject to all the provisions of this Agreement, specifically including every provision of this Agreement relating to the conduct of, affecting the liability of, or affording protection to, the Trustee.  Every such instrument shall be filed with the Trustee and a copy thereof given to the Servicer.

Any separate Trustee or co-Trustee may, at any time, constitute the Trustee, its agent or attorney-in-fact, with full power and authority, to the extent not prohibited by law, to do any lawful act under or in respect of this Agreement on its behalf and in its name.  If any separate Trustee or co-Trustee shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and trusts shall vest in and be exercised by the Trustee, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor Trustee.

Section 10.15.

Appointment of Custodians.

The Trustee may appoint one or more Custodians to hold all or a portion of the Files as agent for the Trustee, by entering into a Custodial Agreement.  Subject to this Article X, the Trustee agrees to comply with the terms of the Custodial Agreement and to enforce the terms and provisions thereof against the Custodian for the benefit of the Owners of the Certificates.

END OF ARTICLE X


ARTICLE XI

MISCELLANEOUS

Section 11.01.

Compliance Certificates and Opinions.

Upon any application or request by the Depositor, the Sellers or the Owners to the Trustee to take any action under any provision of this Agreement, the Depositor, each of the Sellers or the Owners, as the case may be, shall furnish to the Trustee a certificate stating that all conditions precedent, if any, provided for in this Agreement relating to the proposed action have been complied with, except that in the case of any such application or request as to which the furnishing of such documents is specifically required by any provision of this Agreement relating to such particular application or request, no additional certificate need be furnished.

Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, each certificate or opinion with respect to compliance with a condition or covenant provided for in this Agreement (including one furnished pursuant to specific requirements of this Agreement relating to a particular application or request) shall include:

(a)

a statement that each individual signing such certificate or opinion has read such covenant or condition and the definitions herein relating thereto;

(b)

a brief statement as to the nature and scope of the examination or investigation upon which the statements or opinions contained in such certificate or opinion are based; and

(c)

a statement as to whether, in the opinion of each such individual, such condition or covenant has been complied with.

Section 11.02.

Form of Documents Delivered to the Trustee.

In any case where several matters are required to be certified by, or covered by an opinion of, any specified Person, it is not necessary that all such matters be certified by, or covered by the opinion of, only one such Person, or that they be so certified or covered by only one document, but one such Person may certify or give an opinion with respect to some matters and one or more other such Persons as to other matters, and any such Person may certify or give an opinion as to such matters in one or several documents.

Any certificate or opinion of an Authorized Officer of the Trustee may be based, insofar as it relates to legal matters, upon a certificate or opinion of or representations by counsel, unless such Authorized Officer knows, or in the exercise of reasonable care should know, that the certificate or opinion or representations with respect to the matters upon which his certificate or opinion is based are erroneous.  Any such certificate or opinion of an Authorized Officer of the Trustee or any Opinion of Counsel may be based, insofar as it relates to factual matters, upon a certificate or opinion of, or representations by, one or more Authorized Officers of the Depositor, either of the Sellers or the Servicer, stating that the information with respect to such factual matters is in the possession of the Depositor, either of the Sellers or the Servicer, unless such Authorized Officer or counsel knows, or in the exercise of reasonable care should know, that the certificate or opinion or representations with respect to such matters are erroneous.  Any Opinion of Counsel may also be based, insofar as it relates to factual matters, upon a certificate or opinion of, or representations by, an Authorized Officer of the Trustee, stating that the information with respect to such matters is in the possession of the Trustee, unless such counsel knows, or in the exercise of reasonable care should know, that the certificate or opinion or representations with respect to such matters are erroneous.  Any Opinion of Counsel may be based on the written opinion of other counsel, in which event such Opinion of Counsel shall be accompanied by a copy of such other counsel’s opinion and shall include a statement to the effect that such counsel believes that such counsel and the Trustee may reasonably rely upon the opinion of such other counsel.

Where any Person is required to make, give or execute two or more applications, requests, consents, certificates, statements, opinions or other instruments under this Agreement, they may, but need not, be consolidated and form one instrument.

Section 11.03.

Acts of Owners.

(a)

Any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent, waiver or other action provided by this Agreement to be given or taken by the Owners may be embodied in and evidenced by one or more instruments of substantially similar tenor signed by such Owners in person or by agent duly appointed in writing; and, except as herein otherwise expressly provided, such action shall become effective when such instrument or instruments are delivered to the Trustee, and, where it is hereby expressly required, to the Seller.  Such instrument or instruments (and the action embodied therein and evidenced thereby) are herein sometimes referred to as the “act” of the Owners signing such instrument or instruments.  Proof of execution of any such instrument or of a writing appointing any such agent shall be sufficient for any purpose of this Agreement and conclusive in favor of the Trustee and the Trust, if made in the manner provided in this Section.

(b)

The fact and date of the execution by any Person of any such instrument or writing may be proved by the affidavit of a witness of such execution or by the certificate of any notary public or other officer authorized by law to take acknowledgments of deeds, certifying that the individual signing such instrument or writing acknowledged to him the execution thereof.  Whenever such execution is by an officer of a corporation or a member of a partnership on behalf of such corporation or partnership, such certificate or affidavit shall also constitute sufficient proof of his authority.

(c)

The ownership of Certificates shall be proved by the Register.

(d)

Any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent, waiver or other action by the Owner of any Certificate shall bind the Owner of every Certificate issued upon the registration of transfer thereof or in exchange therefor or in lieu thereof, in respect of anything done, omitted or suffered to be done by the Trustee or the Trust in reliance thereon, whether or not notation of such action is made upon such Certificates.

Section 11.04.

Notices, etc. to Trustee.

Any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent, waiver or act of the Owners under this Agreement or other documents provided or permitted by this Agreement to be made upon, given or furnished to, or filed with the Trustee by any Owner, the Depositor, either of the Sellers or the Servicer shall be sufficient for every purpose hereunder if made, given, furnished or filed in writing to or with and received by the Trustee at its Corporate Trust Office as set forth in Section 2.02 hereof.

Section 11.05.

Notices and Reports to Owners; Waiver of Notices.

Where this Agreement provides for notice to Owners of any event or the mailing of any report to Owners, such notice or report shall be sufficiently given (unless otherwise herein expressly provided) if mailed, first-class postage prepaid, to each Owner affected by such event or to whom such report is required to be mailed, at the address of such Owner as it appears on the Register, not later than the latest date, and not earlier than the earliest date, prescribed for the giving of such notice or the mailing of such report.  In any case where a notice or report to Owners is mailed in the manner provided above, neither the failure to mail such notice or report nor any defect in any notice or report so mailed to any particular Owner shall affect the sufficiency of such notice or report with respect to other Owners, and any notice or report which is mailed in the manner herein provided shall be conclusively presumed to have been duly given or provided.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Servicer is removed or resigned or the Trust is terminated, notice of any such events shall be made by overnight courier, registered mail or telecopy followed by a telephone call.

Where this Agreement provides for notice in any manner, such notice may be waived in writing by any Person entitled to receive such notice, either before or after the event, and such waiver shall be the equivalent of such notice.  Waivers of notice by Owners shall be filed with the Trustee, but such filing shall not be a condition precedent to the validity of any action taken in reliance upon such waiver.

In case, by reason of the suspension of regular mail service as a result of a strike, work stoppage or similar activity, it shall be impractical to mail notice of any event to Owners when such notice is required to be given pursuant to any provision of this Agreement, then any manner of giving such notice as shall be satisfactory to the Trustee shall be deemed to be a sufficient giving of such notice.

Where this Agreement provides for notice to any Rating Agency that rated any Certificates, failure to give such notice shall not affect any other rights or obligations created hereunder.

Section 11.06.

Rules by Trustee.

The Trustee may make reasonable rules for any meeting of Owners.

Section 11.07.

Successors and Assigns.

All covenants and agreements in this Agreement by any party hereto shall bind its successors and assigns, whether so expressed or not.

Section 11.08.

Severability.

In case any provision in this Agreement or in the Certificates shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.

Section 11.09.

Benefits of Agreement.

Nothing in this Agreement or in the Certificates, expressed or implied, shall give to any Person, other than the Owners and the parties hereto and their successors hereunder, any benefit or any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under this Agreement.

Section 11.10.

Legal Holidays.

In any case where the date of any Distribution Date, any other date on which any distribution to any Owner is proposed to be paid, or any date on which a notice is required to be sent to any Person pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (with the exception of any Monthly Remittance Date) shall not be a Business Day, then (notwithstanding any other provision of the Certificates or this Agreement) payment or mailing need not be made on such date, but may be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made or mailed on the nominal date of any such Distribution Date, or such other date for the payment of any distribution to any Owner or the mailing of such notice, as the case may be, and no interest shall accrue for the period from and after any such nominal date, provided such payment is made in full on such next succeeding Business Day.  In any case where the date of any Monthly Remittance Date shall not be a Business Day, then payment or mailing need not be made on such date, but must be made on the preceding Business Day.

Section 11.11.

Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction.

(a)

In view of the fact that Owners are expected to reside in many states and outside the United States and the desire to establish with certainty that this Agreement will be governed by and construed and interpreted in accordance with the law of a state having a well-developed body of commercial and financial law relevant to transactions of the type contemplated herein, this Agreement and each Certificate shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and to be performed therein, without giving effect to the conflicts of law principles thereof.

(b)

The parties hereto hereby irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and any court in the State of New York located in the City and County of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action, suit or proceeding brought against it or in connection with this Agreement or any of the related documents or the transactions contemplated hereunder or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agree that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard or determined in such New York state court or, to the extent permitted by law, in such federal court.  The parties hereto agree that a final judgment in any such action, suit or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.  To the extent permitted by applicable law, the parties hereto hereby waive and agree not to assert by way of motion, as a defense or otherwise in any such suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of such courts, that the suit, action or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum, that the venue of the suit, action or proceeding is improper or that the related documents or the subject matter thereof may not be litigated in or by such courts.

(c)

Each of the Depositor, the Sellers and the Servicer hereby irrevocably appoints and designates the Trustee as its true and lawful attorney and duly authorized agent for acceptance of service of legal process with respect to any action, suit or proceeding set forth in paragraph (b) hereof.  Each of the Depositor, the Sellers and the Servicer agrees that service of such process upon the Trustee shall constitute personal service of such process upon it.

(d)

Nothing contained in this Agreement shall limit or affect the right of the Depositor, any of the Sellers or the Servicer, as the case may be, to serve process in any other manner permitted by law or to start legal proceedings relating to any of the Home Equity Loans against any Mortgagor in the courts of any jurisdiction.

Section 11.12.

Counterparts.

This instrument may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which so executed shall be deemed to be an original, but all such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same instrument.

Section 11.13.

Usury.

The amount of interest payable or paid on any Certificate under the terms of this Agreement shall be limited to an amount which shall not exceed the maximum nonusurious rate of interest allowed by the applicable laws of the State of New York or any applicable law of the United States permitting a higher maximum nonusurious rate that preempts such applicable New York laws, which could lawfully be contracted for, charged or received (the “Highest Lawful Rate”).  In the event any payment of interest on any Certificate exceeds the Highest Lawful Rate, the Trust stipulates that such excess amount will be deemed to have been paid to the Owner of such Certificate as a result of an error on the part of the Trustee acting on behalf of the Trust and the Owner receiving such excess payment shall promptly, upon discovery of such error or upon notice thereof from the Trustee on behalf of the Trust, refund the amount of such excess or, at the option of such Owner, apply the excess to the payment of principal of such Certificate, if any, remaining unpaid.  In addition, all sums paid or agreed to be paid to the Trustee for the benefit of Owners of Certificates for the use, forbearance or detention of money shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full term of such Certificates.

Section 11.14.

Amendment.

(a)

The Trustee, the Depositor, the Sellers and the Servicer may, at any time and from time to time, without the giving of notice to or the receipt of the consent of the Owners, amend this Agreement, and the Trustee shall consent to the amendment for the purposes of (i) if accompanied by an approving Opinion of Counsel experienced in federal income tax matters, and an Officer’s Certificate, which shall not be at the expense of the Trustee, removing the restriction against the transfer of a Class R Certificate to a Disqualified Organization, (ii) complying with the requirements of the Code including any amendments necessary to maintain REMIC status of each REMIC, (iii) curing any ambiguity, (iv) correcting or supplementing any provisions of this Agreement which are inconsistent with any other provisions of this Agreement, (v) amending Section 8.28 as contemplated by Section 8.28(g), or (vi) for any other purpose, provided that in the case of clause (vi), such amendment shall not adversely affect in any material respect any Owner.  Any such amendment shall be deemed not to adversely affect in any material respect any Owner if such Owner shall have consented thereto in writing or if there is delivered to the Trustee written notification from each Rating Agency that such amendment will not cause such Rating Agency to reduce its then current rating assigned to the Offered Certificates.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, no such amendment shall (a) change in any manner the amount of, or delay the timing of, payments which are required to be distributed to any Owner without the consent of such Owner or (b) change the percentages of Percentage Interest which are required to consent to any such amendments, without the consent of the Owners of all Certificates of the Class or Classes affected then outstanding.  The Trustee shall not be required to execute any amendment or supplement if it affects its rights, duties, immunities or indemnities.

(b)

The Rating Agencies shall be provided by the Seller and the Depositor with copies of any amendments to this Agreement, together with copies of any opinions or other documents or instruments executed in connection therewith.

(c)

Notwithstanding any contrary provisions of this Agreement, the Trustee shall not consent to any amendment to this Agreement unless it shall have first received an Opinion of Counsel (provided by the Person requesting such amendment) to the effect that such amendment will not result in the imposition of any tax on the Trust pursuant to the REMIC Provisions or cause any REMIC created hereunder to fail to qualify as a REMIC at any time that any of the Certificates are outstanding.

(d)

The Trustee may, at any time and from time to time, amend the Cap Agreement, if such amendment is requested by the Cap Counterparty for the purposes of (i) curing any ambiguity in or (ii) correcting or supplementing any provisions of, the Cap Agreement, if accompanied by an approving Opinion of Counsel experienced in such matters, which shall not be at the expense of the Trustee, to the effect that such amendment will not adversely affect the interests of the related Certificateholders.

Section 11.15.

Paying Agent; Appointment and Acceptance of Duties.

The Trustee is hereby appointed Paying Agent.  The Seller may, if such Person meets the eligibility requirements for the Trustee set forth in Section 10.08 hereof, appoint one or more other Paying Agents or successor Paying Agents.

Each Paying Agent, immediately upon such appointment shall signify its acceptance of the duties and obligations imposed upon it by this Agreement by written instrument of acceptance deposited with the Trustee.

Each such Paying Agent other than the Trustee shall execute and deliver to the Trustee an instrument in which such Paying Agent shall agree with the Trustee, subject to the provisions of Section 6.02, that such Paying Agent will:

(a)

allocate all sums received for distribution to the Owners of Certificates of each Class for which it is acting as Paying Agent on each Distribution Date among such Owners in the proportion specified by the Trustee; and

REMIC Status.

(a)

The parties hereto intend that each REMIC created hereunder shall constitute, and that the affairs of each REMIC created hereunder shall be conducted so as to qualify it as a REMIC in accordance with the REMIC Provisions.  In furtherance of such intention, JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, or such other person designated pursuant to Section 11.18 hereof shall act as agent for the Trust and as Tax Matters Person for the Trust and that in such capacity it shall: (i) prepare or cause to be prepared and filed, at its own expense, in a timely manner, annual tax returns and any other tax return required to be filed by each REMIC created hereunder using a calendar year as the taxable year for such REMIC; (ii) in the related first such tax return, make (or cause to be made) an election satisfying the requirements of the REMIC Provisions, on behalf of each REMIC created hereunder, for it to be treated as a REMIC; (iii) at the Tax Matters Person’s expense, prepare and forward, or cause to be prepared and forwarded, to the Owners all information, reports or tax returns required with respect to each REMIC created hereunder, including Schedule Q to Form 1066, as, when and in the form required to be provided to the Owners, and to the Internal Revenue Service and any other relevant governmental taxing authority in accordance with the REMIC Provisions and any other applicable federal, state or local laws, including without limitation information reports relating to “original issue discount” as defined in the Code based upon the prepayment assumption and calculated by using the “Issue Price” (within the meaning of Section 1273 of the Code) of the Certificates of the related Class; provided that the tax return filed on Schedule Q to Form 1066 shall be prepared and forwarded to the Owners of the Class R Certificates no later than 50 days after the end of the period to which such tax return was due; (iv) not take any action or omit to take any action that would cause the termination of the REMIC status of any REMIC created hereunder, except as provided under this Agreement; (v) represent the Trust or each REMIC created hereunder in any administrative or judicial proceedings relating to an examination or audit by any governmental taxing authority, request an administrative adjustment as to a taxable year of the Trust or each REMIC created hereunder, enter into settlement agreements with any governmental taxing agency, extend any statute of limitations relating to any tax item of the Trust or each REMIC created hereunder, and otherwise act on behalf of the Trust or each REMIC created hereunder in relation to any tax matter involving the Trust or each REMIC created hereunder (the legal expenses and costs of any such action described in this subsection (v) and any liability resulting therefrom shall constitute expenses of the Trust and shall constitute Trustee Reimbursable Expenses, unless such legal expenses and costs are incurred by reason of the Trustee’s willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence); (vi) comply with all statutory or regulatory requirements with regard to its conduct of activities pursuant to the foregoing clauses of this Section 11.16, including, without limitation, providing all notices and other information to the Internal Revenue Service and Owners of Class R Certificates required of a “tax matters person” pursuant to subtitle F of the Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder; (vii) make available information necessary for the computation of any tax imposed (A) on transfer of residual interests to certain Disqualified Organizations or (B) on pass-through entities, any interest in which is held by a Disqualified Organization; and (viii) acquire and hold the Tax Matters Person Residual Interest.  The obligations of the Trustee or such other designated Tax Matters Person pursuant to this Section 11.16 shall survive the termination or discharge of this Agreement.

(b)

The Sellers, the Depositor, the Trustee and the Servicer covenant and agree for the benefit of the Owners (i) to take no action which would result in the termination of REMIC status for any REMIC created hereunder, (ii) not to engage in any “prohibited transaction”, as such term is defined in Section 860F(a)(2) of the Code, (iii) not to engage in any other action which may result in the imposition on the Trust of any other taxes under the Code and (iv) to cause the Servicer not to take or engage in any such action, to the extent that either of the Sellers is aware of any such proposed action by the Servicer.

(c)

Each REMIC created hereunder shall, for federal income tax purposes, maintain books on a calendar year basis and report income on an accrual basis.

(d)

Except as otherwise permitted by Section 7.05(b), no Eligible Investment shall be sold prior to its stated maturity (unless sold pursuant to a plan of liquidation in accordance with Article IX hereof).

(e)

None of the Depositor, the Sellers or the Trustee shall enter into any arrangement by which the Trustee will receive a fee or other compensation for services rendered pursuant to this Agreement, other than as expressly contemplated by this Agreement.

(f)

Notwithstanding the foregoing clauses (d) and (e), the Trustee or either of the Sellers may engage in any of the transactions prohibited by such clauses, provided that the Trustee shall have received an Opinion of Counsel experienced in federal income tax matters to the effect that such transaction does not result in a tax imposed on the Trust or cause a termination of REMIC status for any REMIC created hereunder; provided, however, that such transaction is otherwise permitted under this Agreement.

(g)

In the event that any tax is imposed on “prohibited transactions” of the Trust created hereunder as defined in Section 860F(a)(2) of the Code, on “net income from foreclosure property” of the Trust as defined in Section 860G(c) of the Code, on any contributions to the Trust after the Startup Day therefor pursuant to Section 860G(d) of the Code, or any other tax is imposed by the Code or any applicable provisions of state or local tax laws, such tax shall be charged (i) to the Trustee if such tax arises out of or results from the willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in performance by the Trustee of any of its obligations under Article X, or (ii) to the Servicer if such tax arises out of or results from a breach by the Servicer of any of its obligations under Article VIII or otherwise.

Section 11.17.

Additional Limitation on Action and Imposition of Tax.

Any provision of this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, the Trustee shall not, without having obtained an Opinion of Counsel experienced in federal income tax matters at the expense of the party seeking to take such action but in no event at the expense of the Trust to the effect that such transaction does not result in a tax imposed on the Trust or any REMIC created hereunder or cause a termination of REMIC status for any REMIC created hereunder, (i) sell any assets in the Trust Estate, (ii) accept any contribution of assets after the Startup Day, (iii) allow the Servicer to foreclose upon any Home Equity Loan if such foreclosure would result in a tax on the Trust or any REMIC created hereunder or cause termination of REMIC status for any REMIC created hereunder or (iv) agree to any modification of this Agreement.  To the extent that sufficient amounts cannot be so retained to pay or provide for the payment of such tax, the Trustee is hereby authorized to and shall segregate, into a separate non-interest bearing account, the net income from any such Prohibited Transactions of each REMIC created hereunder and use such income, to the extent necessary, to pay such tax; provided that, to the extent that any such income is paid to the Internal Revenue Service, the Trustee shall retain an equal amount from future amounts otherwise distributable to the Owners of Class R Certificates and shall distribute such retained amounts to the Owners of Offered Certificates to the extent they are fully reimbursed and then to the Owners of the Class R Certificates.  If any tax, including interest penalties or assessments, additional amounts or additions to tax, is imposed on the Trust, such tax shall be charged against amounts otherwise distributable to the owners of the Class R Certificates on a pro rata basis.  The Trustee is hereby authorized to and shall retain from amounts otherwise distributable to the Owners of the Class R Certificates sufficient funds to pay or provide for the payment of, and to actually pay, such tax as is legally owed by the Trust (but such authorization shall not prevent the Trustee from contesting any such tax in appropriate proceedings, and withholding payment of such tax, if permitted by law, pending the outcome of such proceedings).

Section 11.18.

Appointment of Tax Matters Person.

A Tax Matters Person will be appointed for each REMIC created hereunder for all purposes of the Code and such Tax Matters Person will perform, or cause to be performed, such duties and take, or cause to be taken, such actions as are required to be performed or taken by the Tax Matters Person under the Code.  The Tax Matters Person for each REMIC created hereunder shall be the Trustee as long as it owns a Class R Certificate.  If the Trustee does not own a Class R Certificate, the Tax Matters Person will be the holder of the largest percentage interest in the Class R Certificates.  The Trustee is hereby irrevocably appointed to act as the agent of the Tax Matters Person for all purposes of the Code and regulations thereunder.

Filing Obligations.

The Servicer, the Trustee and each Seller shall reasonably cooperate with the Depositor in connection with the satisfaction of the Depositor’s reporting requirements under the Exchange Act with respect to the Trust Estate.  In addition to the information specified below, if so requested by the Depositor for the purpose of satisfying its reporting obligation under the Exchange Act, the Servicer, the Trustee and each Seller shall (and the Servicer shall cause each Subservicer to) provide the Depositor with (a) such information which is available to such Person without unreasonable effort or expense and within such timeframe as may be reasonably requested by the Depositor to comply with the Depositor’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act and (b) to the extent such Person is a party (and the Depositor is not a party) to any agreement or amendment required to be filed, copies of such agreement or amendment in EDGAR-compatible form.  

Section 12.02.

Form 10-D Filings.

(a)

In accordance with the Exchange Act, the Trustee shall prepare for filing and file within 15 days after each Distribution Date (subject to permitted extensions under the Exchange Act) with the Commission with respect to the Trust Estate, a Form 10-D with copies of the Monthly Report and, to the extent delivered to the Trustee, no later than 10 days following the Distribution Date, such other information identified by the Depositor or the Servicer, in writing, to be filed with the Commission (such other information, the “Additional Designated Information”).  If the Depositor or Servicer directs that any Additional Designated Information is to be filed with any Form 10-D, the Depositor or Servicer, as the case may be, shall specify the Item on Form 10-D to which such information is responsive and, with respect to any Exhibit to be filed on Form 10-D, the Exhibit number.  Any information to be filed on Form 10-D shall be delivered to the Trustee in EDGAR-compatible form or as otherwise agreed upon by the Trustee and the Depositor or the Servicer, as the case may be, at the Depositor’s expense, and any necessary conversion to EDGAR-compatible format will be at the Depositor’s expense.  At the reasonable request of, and in accordance with the reasonable directions of, the Depositor or the Servicer, subject to the two preceding sentences, the Trustee shall prepare for filing and file an amendment to any Form 10-D previously filed with the Commission with respect to the Trust Estate.  The Servicer shall sign the Form 10-D filed on behalf of the Trust Estate.

(b)

(c)

The Trustee shall not have any responsibility to file any items (other than those generated by it) that have not been received in a format suitable (or readily convertible into a format suitable) for electronic filing via the EDGAR system and shall not have any responsibility to convert any such items to such format (other than those items generated by it or that are readily convertible to such format).  The Trustee shall have no liability to the Certificateholders, the Trust Estate, the Servicer or the Depositor with respect to any failure to properly prepare or file any of Form 10-D to the extent that such failure is not the result of any negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct on its part.

Section 12.04.

Form 10-K Filings.

Prior to March 20th of each year, commencing in 2007 (or such earlier date as may be required by the Exchange Act), the Depositor shall prepare and file on behalf of the Trust Estate a Form 10-K, in form and substance as required by the Exchange Act.  A senior officer in charge of the servicing function of the Servicer shall sign each Form 10-K filed on behalf of the Trust Estate.  Such Form 10-K shall include as exhibits each (i) annual compliance statement described under Section 8.16, (ii) annual report on assessments of compliance with servicing criteria described under Section 12.07 and (iii) accountant’s report described under Section 12.07.  Each Form 10-K shall also include any Sarbanes-Oxley Certification required to be included therewith, as described in Section 12.05.

If the Item 1119 Parties listed on Exhibit V have changed since the Closing Date, no later than March 1 of each year, the Servicer shall provide each of the Servicer (and the Servicer shall provide any Subservicer) and the Trustee with an updated Exhibit V setting forth the Item 1119 Parties.  No later than March 15 of each year, commencing in 2007, the Servicer and the Trustee shall notify (and the Servicer shall cause any Subservicer to notify) the Depositor and the Servicer of any Form 10-K Disclosure Item, together with a description of any such Form 10-K Disclosure Item in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Depositor.  Additionally, each of the Servicer and the Trustee shall provide, and shall cause each Reporting Subcontractor retained by the Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, and in the case of the Servicer shall cause each Subservicer, to provide, the following information no later than March 15 of each year in which a Form 10-K is required to be filed on behalf of the Trust Estate: (i) if such Person’s report on assessment of compliance with servicing criteria described under Section 12.07 or related registered public accounting firm attestation report described under Section 12.07 identifies any material instance of noncompliance, notification of such instance of noncompliance and (ii) if any such Person’s report on assessment of compliance with the servicing criteria or related registered public accounting firm attestation report is not provided to be filed as an exhibit to such Form 10-K, information detailing the explanation why such report is not included.

Section 12.05.

Sarbanes-Oxley Certification.

Each Form 10-K shall include a certification (the “Sarbanes-Oxley Certification”) required by Rules 13a-14(d) and 15d-14(d) under the Exchange Act (pursuant to Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the rules and regulations of the Commission promulgated thereunder (including any interpretations thereof by the Commission’s staff)).  No later than March 15 of each year, beginning in 2007, the Servicer and the Trustee shall (unless such person is the Certifying Person), and the Servicer shall cause each Subservicer and each Reporting Subcontractor and the Trustee shall cause each Reporting Subcontractor to, provide to the Person who signs the Sarbanes-Oxley Certification (the “Certifying Person”) a certification (each, a “Performance Certification”), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit T-2 (in the case of a Subservicer or any Reporting Subcontractor of the Servicer or a Subservicer) and Exhibit T-1 (in the case of the Trustee or any Reporting Subcontractor of the Trustee), on which the Certifying Person, the entity for which the Certifying Person acts as an officer, and such entity’s officers, directors and Affiliates (collectively with the Certifying Person, “Certification Parties”) can reasonably rely.  The senior officer in charge of the servicing function of the Servicer shall serve as the Certifying Person on behalf of the Trust Estate.  Neither the Servicer nor the Depositor will request delivery of a certification under this clause unless the Depositor is required under the Exchange Act to file an annual report on Form 10-K with respect to the Trust Estate.  In the event that prior to the filing date of the Form 10-K in March of each year, the Trustee or the Depositor has actual knowledge of information material to the Sarbanes-Oxley Certification, the Trustee or the Depositor, as the case may be, shall promptly notify the Servicer and the Depositor.  The respective parties hereto agree to cooperate with all reasonable requests made by any Certifying Person or Certification Party in connection with such Person’s attempt to conduct any due diligence that such Person reasonably believes to be appropriate in order to allow it to deliver any Sarbanes-Oxley Certification or portion thereof with respect to the Trust Estate.

Section 12.06.

Section 12.08.

Use of Subservicers and Subcontractors.

(a)

The Servicer shall cause any Subservicer used by the Servicer (or by any Subservicer) for the benefit of the Depositor to comply with the provisions of Section 8.16 and this Article XII to the same extent as if such Subservicer were the Servicer (except with respect to the Servicer’s duties with respect to preparing and filing any Exchange Act Reports or as the Certifying Person).  The Servicer shall be responsible for obtaining from each Subservicer and delivering to the Depositor any servicer compliance statement required to be delivered by such Subservicer under Section 8.16, any assessment of compliance and attestation required to be delivered by such Subservicer under Section 12.07 and any certification required to be delivered to the Certifying Person under Section 12.05 as and when required to be delivered.  As a condition to the succession to any Subservicer as subservicer under this Agreement by any Person (i) into which such Subservicer may be merged or consolidated, or (ii) which may be appointed as a successor to any Subservicer, the Servicer shall provide to the Depositor, at least 15 calendar days prior to the effective date of such succession or appointment, (x) written notice to the Depositor of such succession or appointment and (y) in writing and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Depositor, all information reasonably requested by the Depositor in order to comply with its reporting obligation under Item 6.02 of Form 8-K.

(b)

It shall not be necessary for the Servicer, any Subservicer or the Trustee to seek the consent of the Depositor or any other party hereto to the utilization of any Subcontractor.  The Servicer or the Trustee, as applicable, shall promptly upon request provide to the Depositor (or any designee of the Depositor, such as the Servicer or administrator) a written description (in form and substance satisfactory to the Depositor) of the role and function of each Subcontractor utilized by such Person (or in the case of the Servicer or any Subservicer), specifying (i) the identity of each such Subcontractor, (ii) which (if any) of such Subcontractors are “participating in the servicing function” within the meaning of Item 1122 of Regulation AB, and (iii) which elements of the Servicing Criteria will be addressed in assessments of compliance provided by each Subcontractor identified pursuant to clause (ii) of this paragraph.

Section 12.09.

Amendments.

In the event the parties to this Agreement desire to further clarify or amend any provision of this Article XII, this Agreement shall be amended to reflect the new agreement between the parties covering matters in this Article XII pursuant to Section 11.14, which amendment shall not require any Opinion of Counsel or Rating Agency confirmations or the consent of any Certificateholder.  If, during the period that the Depositor is required to file Exchange Act Reports with respect to the Trust Estate, the Servicer is no longer an Affiliate of the Depositor, the Depositor shall assume the obligations and responsibilities of the Servicer in this Article XII with respect to the preparation and filing of the Exchange Act Reports and/or acting as the Certifying Person, if the Depositor has received indemnity from such successor Servicer satisfactory to the Depositor, and such Servicer has agreed to provide a Sarbanes-Oxley Certification to the Depositor substantially in the form of Exhibit W, and the certificates referred to in Section 12.07.

Registered Owner

The registered Owner named above is the registered beneficial Owner of such Owner’s fractional interest in (a) the Home Equity Loans listed in Schedule I-A and Schedule I-B to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (as defined below) which the Seller and the Conduit Seller are causing to be delivered to the Depositor and the Depositor is causing to be delivered to the Trustee, together with the related Home Equity Loan documents and the Depositor’s interest in any Property, and all payments thereon and proceeds of the conversion, voluntary or involuntary, of the foregoing; (b) such amounts as may be held by the Trustee in the Certificate Account, together with investment earnings on such amounts, and such amounts as may be held in the name of the Trustee in the Principal and Interest Account, if any, inclusive of investment earnings thereon, whether in the form of cash, instruments, securities or other properties (including any Eligible Investments held by the Servicer); (c) any Cap Agreement Proceeds received by the Trustee on the Cap Agreement and such amounts as maybe held by the Trustee in the Cap Agreement Reserve Fund, excluding any investment earnings on such amounts; (d) such amounts as may be held by the Trustee in the Supplemental Interest Reserve Fund together with investment earnings on such amounts; and (e) proceeds of all the foregoing (including, but not by way of limitation, all proceeds of any mortgage insurance, flood insurance, hazard insurance and title insurance policy relating to the Home Equity Loans, cash proceeds, accounts, accounts receivable, notes, drafts, acceptances, chattel paper, checks, deposit accounts, rights to payment of any and every kind, and other forms of obligations and receivables which at any time constitute all or part of or are included in the proceeds of any of the foregoing) to pay the Certificates, in each case, as specified in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement ((a) – (e) above shall be collectively referred to herein as the “Trust Estate”).

The Owner hereof is entitled to principal payments on each Distribution Date, as hereinafter described, which will fully amortize such original Certificate Principal Balance of the Class AF-1 Certificates over the period from the date of initial issuance of the Certificates to the Final Scheduled Distribution Date for the Class AF-1 Certificates.  Therefore, the actual outstanding principal amount of this Certificate may, on any date subsequent to  ___________  ___, 20__ (the first Distribution Date), be less than the original Certificate Principal Balance of the Class AF-1 Certificates set forth above.

Upon receiving the final distribution hereon, the Owner hereof is required to send this Certificate to the Trustee.  The Pooling and Servicing Agreement provides that, in any event, upon the making of the final distribution due on this Certificate, this Certificate shall be deemed canceled for all purposes under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.  

NEITHER THIS CERTIFICATE NOR THE UNDERLYING HOME EQUITY LOANS ARE INSURED OR GUARANTEED BY THE FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION, THE GOVERNMENT NATIONAL MORTGAGE ASSOCIATION OR ANY OTHER GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY.  

THE PRINCIPAL OF THIS CERTIFICATE IS PAYABLE IN INSTALLMENTS.  THEREFORE, THE ACTUAL OUTSTANDING PRINCIPAL AMOUNT OF THIS CERTIFICATE MAY ON ANY DATE SUBSEQUENT TO ___________ ___, 20__ (THE FIRST DISTRIBUTION DATE) BE LESS THAN ITS ORIGINAL CERTIFICATE PRINCIPAL BALANCE.

NOTWITHSTANDING REFERENCES HEREIN TO PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST, NO DEBT OF ANY PERSON IS REPRESENTED HEREBY.  

This Certificate is one of a Class of duly-authorized Certificates designated as Centex Home Equity Loan Trust 20__-__, Centex Home Equity Loan Asset-Backed Certificates, Class AF-1 (the “Class AF-1 Certificates”) and issued under and subject to the terms, provisions and conditions of that certain Pooling and Servicing Agreement dated as of  ___________  ___, 20__ (the “Pooling and Servicing Agreement”) by and among Centex Home Equity Company, LLC, in its capacity as a seller (the “Seller”) and as the servicer (the “Servicer”), CHEC Funding, LLC, in its capacity as depositor (the “Depositor”), [  Depositor ], as conduit seller (the “Conduit Seller”) and [Seller], in its capacity as the trustee (the “Trustee”), to which Pooling and Servicing Agreement the Owner of this Certificate by virtue of acceptance hereof assents and by which such Owner is bound.  Also issued under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement are Certificates designated as Centex Home Equity Loan Trust 20__-__ Home Equity Loan Asset-Backed Certificates, Class AF-2 (the “Class AF-2 Certificates”), Class AF-3 (the “Class AF-3 Certificates”), Class AF-4 (the “Class AF-4 Certificates”), Class AF-5 (the “Class AF-5 Certificates”), Class AF-6 (the “Class AF-6 Certificates”), Class AV-1 (the “Class AV-1 Certificates”), Class AV-2 (the “Class AV-2 Certificates”), Class M-1 (the “Class M-1 Certificates”), Class M-2 (the Class M-2 Certificates”), Class M-3 (the “Class M-3 Certificates”), Class M-4 (the “Class M-4 Certificates”), Class M-5 (the “Class M-5 Certificates”), Class M-6 (the “Class M-6 Certificates”), Class M-7 (the “Class M-7 Certificates”),   Class B-1 (the “Class B-1 Certificates”), Class B-2 (the “Class B-2 Certificates”), Class B-3 (the “Class B-3 Certificates”), Class X-IO (the “Class X-IO Certificates”), and Class R (the “Class R Certificates”).  The Class AF-1 Certificates, the Class AF-2 Certificates, the Class AF-3 Certificates, the Class AF-4 Certificates, the Class AF-5 Certificates, the Class AF-6 Certificates, the Class AV-1 Certificates, the Class AV-2 Certificates, Class M-1 Certificates, the Class M-2 Certificates, the Class M-3 Certificates, the Class M-4 Certificates, the Class M-5 Certificates, the Class M-6 Certificates, the Class M-7 Certificates, the Class B-1 Certificates, the Class B-2 Certificates and the Class B-3 Certificates shall be together referred to as the “Offered Certificates” and the Offered Certificates, the Class X-IO Certificates and the Class R Certificates are together referred to herein as the “Certificates.”  Terms capitalized herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the respective meanings set forth in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

On the __th day of each month, or, if such day is not a Business Day, then the next succeeding Business Day (each such day being a “Distribution Date”) commencing  ___________  ___, 20__, the Owners of the Class AF-1 Certificates as of the close of business on the last Business Day of the calendar month immediately preceding the calendar month in which a Distribution Date occurs (the “Record Date”) will be entitled to receive the Class Principal Distribution Amount relating to such Certificates on such Distribution Date.  Distributions will be made in immediately available funds to Owners of Certificates having an aggregate original Certificate Principal Balance of at least $[   ] (by wire transfer or otherwise) to the account of an Owner at a domestic bank or other entity having appropriate facilities therefor, if such Owner has so notified the Trustee, or by check mailed to the address of the person entitled thereto as it appears on the Register.  

Each Owner of record of a Class AF-1 Certificate will be entitled to receive such Owner’s Percentage Interest in the amounts due on such Distribution Date to the Owners of the Class AF-1 Certificates.  The Percentage Interest of each Class AF-1 Certificate as of any date of determination will be equal to the percentage obtained by dividing the original Certificate Principal Balance of such Class AF-1 Certificate on the Startup Day by the aggregate Certificate Principal Balance of the Class AF-1 Certificates on the Startup Day.  

The Trustee or any duly-appointed Paying Agent will duly and punctually pay distributions with respect to this Certificate in accordance with the terms hereof and the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.  Amounts properly withheld under the Code by any Person from a distribution to any Owner shall be considered as having been paid by the Trustee to such Owner for all purposes of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Home Equity Loans will be serviced by the Servicer pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.  The Pooling and Servicing Agreement permits the Servicer to enter into Sub-Servicing Agreements with certain institutions eligible for appointment as Sub-Servicers for the servicing and administration of certain Home Equity Loans.  No appointment of any Sub-Servicer shall release the Servicer from any of its obligations under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

This Certificate does not represent a deposit or other obligation of, or an interest in, nor are the underlying Home Equity Loans insured or guaranteed by, CHEC Funding, LLC, [ Conduit Seller ] or Centex Home Equity Company, LLC or any of their Affiliates.  This Certificate is limited in right of payment to certain collections and recoveries relating to the Home Equity Loans and amounts on deposit in the Certificate Account and the Principal and Interest Account (except as otherwise provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement), as more specifically set forth hereinabove and in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

No Owner shall have any right to institute any proceeding, judicial or otherwise, with respect to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee, or for any other remedy under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement except in compliance with the terms thereof.

Notwithstanding any other provisions in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, the Owner of any Certificate shall have the right which is absolute and unconditional to receive distributions to the extent provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement with respect to such Certificate or to institute suit for the enforcement of any such distribution, and such right shall not be impaired without the consent of such Owner.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement provides that the obligations created thereby will terminate upon the payment to the Owners of all Certificates of all amounts held by the Trustee and required to be paid to such Owners pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement additionally provides that the Owner of the Class X-IO Certificates may, at its option, purchase from the Trust all remaining Home Equity Loans and other property then constituting the Trust Estate, and thereby effect early retirement of the Certificates, on any Distribution Date on or after the Clean-Up Call Date.  In addition, under certain circumstances relating to the qualification of any REMIC hereunder as a REMIC under the Code, the Home Equity Loans may be sold, thereby effecting the early retirement of the Certificates.

The Trustee shall give written notice of termination of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to each Owner in the manner set forth therein.

The Owners of the majority of the Percentage Interests represented by the Offered Certificates have the right to exercise any trust or power set forth in Section 6.11 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

As provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth and referred to on the face hereof, the transfer of this Certificate is registrable in the Register upon surrender of this Certificate for registration of transfer at the office designated as the location of the Register duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Registrar duly executed by, the Owner hereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Certificates of the like Class, tenor and a like Percentage Interest will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modifications of rights and obligations of the parties provided therein by the Depositor, the Trustee, the Seller and the Servicer at any time and from time to time, without the consent of the Owners; provided that in certain other circumstances provided for in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement such consent of the Owners will be required prior to amendments.  Any such consent by the Owner of this Certificate shall be conclusive and binding upon such Owner and upon all future Owners of the Certificate and of any Certificate issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Certificate.

The Trustee is required to furnish certain information on each Distribution Date to the Owner of this Certificate, as more fully described in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Class AF-1 Certificates are issuable only as registered Certificates in minimum denominations of $[    ] original Certificate Principal Balance and in integral multiples of $[     ]in excess of $[    ].  As provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Class AF-1 Certificates are exchangeable for new Class AF-1 Certificates of authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate principal amount.

No service charge will be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Registrar or Trustee may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.

The Trustee and any agent of the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and neither the Trustee nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

The Trustee or any duly-appointed Paying Agent will duly and punctually pay distributions with respect to this Certificate in accordance with the terms hereof and the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.  Amounts properly withheld under the Code by any Person from a distribution to any Owner shall be considered as having been paid by the Trustee to such Owner for all purposes of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Home Equity Loans will be serviced by the Servicer pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.  The Pooling and Servicing Agreement permits the Servicer to enter into Sub-Servicing Agreements with certain institutions eligible for appointment as Sub-Servicers for the servicing and administration of certain Home Equity Loans.  No appointment of any Sub-Servicer shall release the Servicer from any of its obligations under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

This Certificate does not represent a deposit or other obligation of, or an interest in, nor are the underlying Home Equity Loans insured or guaranteed by, CHEC Funding, LLC, [ Conduit Seller ] or Centex Home Equity Company, LLC or any of their Affiliates.  This Certificate is limited in right of payment to certain collections and recoveries relating to the Home Equity Loans and amounts on deposit in the Certificate Account and the Principal and Interest Account (except as otherwise provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement), as more specifically set forth hereinabove and in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

No Owner shall have any right to institute any proceeding, judicial or otherwise, with respect to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee, or for any other remedy under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement except in compliance with the terms thereof.

Notwithstanding any other provisions in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, the Owner of any Certificate shall have the right which is absolute and unconditional to receive distributions to the extent provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement with respect to such Certificate or to institute suit for the enforcement of any such distribution, and such right shall not be impaired without the consent of such Owner.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement provides that the obligations created thereby will terminate upon the payment to the Owners of all Certificates of all amounts held by the Trustee and required to be paid to such Owners pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement additionally provides that the Owner of the Class X-IO Certificates may, at its option, purchase from the Trust all remaining Home Equity Loans and other property then constituting the Trust Estate, and thereby effect early retirement of the Certificates, on any Distribution Date on or after the Clean-Up Call Date. In addition, under certain circumstances relating to the qualification of any REMIC hereunder as a REMIC under the Code, the Home Equity Loans may be sold, thereby effecting the early retirement of the Certificates.

The Trustee shall give written notice of termination of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to each Owner in the manner set forth therein.

The Owners of the majority of the Percentage Interests represented by the Offered Certificates have the right to exercise any trust or power set forth in Section 6.11 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

THE PRINCIPAL OF THIS CERTIFICATE IS PAYABLE IN INSTALLMENTS.  THEREFORE, THE ACTUAL OUTSTANDING PRINCIPAL AMOUNT OF THIS CERTIFICATE MAY ON ANY DATE SUBSEQUENT TO ___________ ___, 20__ (THE FIRST DISTRIBUTION DATE) BE LESS THAN ITS ORIGINAL CERTIFICATE PRINCIPAL BALANCE.

NOTWITHSTANDING REFERENCES HEREIN TO PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST, NO DEBT OF ANY PERSON IS REPRESENTED HEREBY.

The Trustee or any duly-appointed Paying Agent will duly and punctually pay distributions with respect to this Certificate in accordance with the terms hereof and the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.  Amounts properly withheld under the Code by any Person from a distribution to any Owner shall be considered as having been paid by the Trustee to such Owner for all purposes of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Home Equity Loans will be serviced by the Servicer pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.  The Pooling and Servicing Agreement permits the Servicer to enter into Sub-Servicing Agreements with certain institutions eligible for appointment as Sub-Servicers for the servicing and administration of certain Home Equity Loans.  No appointment of any Sub-Servicer shall release the Servicer from any of its obligations under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

This Certificate does not represent a deposit or other obligation of, or an interest in, nor are the underlying Home Equity Loans insured or guaranteed by, CHEC Funding, LLC, [ Conduit Seller ] or Centex Home Equity Company, LLC or any of their Affiliates.  This Certificate is limited in right of payment to certain collections and recoveries relating to the Home Equity Loans and amounts on deposit in the Certificate Account and the Principal and Interest Account (except as otherwise provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement), as more specifically set forth hereinabove and in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

No Owner shall have any right to institute any proceeding, judicial or otherwise, with respect to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee, or for any other remedy under the Pooling and Servicing Agreement except in compliance with the terms thereof.

Notwithstanding any other provisions in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, the Owner of any Certificate shall have the right which is absolute and unconditional to receive distributions to the extent provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement with respect to such Certificate or to institute suit for the enforcement of any such distribution, and such right shall not be impaired without the consent of such Owner.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement provides that the obligations created thereby will terminate upon the payment to the Owners of all Certificates of all amounts held by the Trustee and required to be paid to such Owners pursuant to the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement additionally provides that the Owner of the Class X-IO Certificates may, at its option, purchase from the Trust all remaining Home Equity Loans and other property then constituting the Trust Estate, and thereby effect early retirement of the Certificates, on any Distribution Date on or after the Clean-Up Call Date. In addition, under certain circumstances relating to the qualification of any REMIC hereunder as a REMIC under the Code, the Home Equity Loans may be sold, thereby effecting the early retirement of the Certificates.

The Trustee shall give written notice of termination of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement to each Owner in the manner set forth therein.

The Owners of the majority of the Percentage Interests represented by the Offered Certificates have the right to exercise any trust or power set forth in Section 6.11 of the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modifications of rights and obligations of the parties provided therein by the Depositor, the Trustee, the Seller and the Servicer at any time and from time to time, without the consent of the Owners; provided that in certain other circumstances provided for in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement such consent of the Owners will be required prior to amendments.  Any such consent by the Owner of this Certificate shall be conclusive and binding upon such Owner and upon all future Owners of the Certificate and of any Certificate issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Certificate.

The Trustee is required to furnish certain information on each Distribution Date to the Owner of this Certificate, as more fully described in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement.

The Class AF-3 Certificates are issuable only as registered Certificates in minimum denominations of $[   ] original Certificate Principal Balance and in integral multiples of $[   ] in excess of $[   ].  As provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Class AF-3 Certificates are exchangeable for new Class AF-3 Certificates of authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate principal amount.

No service charge will be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Registrar or Trustee may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.

The Trustee and any agent of the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and neither the Trustee nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement additionally provides that the Owner of the Class X-IO Certificates may, at its option, purchase from the Trust all remaining Home Equity Loans and other property then constituting the Trust Estate, and thereby effect early retirement of the Certificates, on any Distribution Date on or after the Clean-Up Call Date.

The Pooling and Servicing Agreement permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modifications of rights and obligations of the parties provided therein by the Depositor, the Trustee, the Seller and the Servicer at any time and from time to time, without the consent of the Owners; provided that in certain other circumstances provided for in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement such consent of the Owners will be required prior to amendments.  Any such consent by the Owner of this Certificate shall be conclusive and binding upon such Owner and upon all future Owners of the Certificate and of any Certificate issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Certificate.

The Class AF-5 Certificates are issuable only as registered Certificates in minimum denominations of $[   ] original Certificate Principal Balance and in integral multiples of $[   ] in excess of $[   ].  As provided in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Class AF-5 Certificates are exchangeable for new Class AF-5 Certificates of authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate principal amount.

No service charge will be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Registrar or Trustee may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.

The Trustee and any agent of the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and neither the Trustee nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
