    • 6.3. Solidary Liability

      The terms “BORROWER” and “MORTGAGOR”, if used herein in reference to one and the same person or persons, are used herein interchangeably, notwithstanding anything to the contrary expressed in or implied from any provision of this Agreement.

    • 6.4. Obligations of the Mortgagor

      The Mortgagor shall perform the following obligations and undertake the following responsibilities in respect of the Mortgaged Property:

      1. Use of Mortgaged Property. The Mortgagor hereby covenants and undertakes that the Mortgaged Property is only for the purpose set forth in this Agreement. The Mortgagor shall not use or convert, or permit the use or conversion of, the Mortgaged Property for other purposes, without the prior written consent of the Bank, for as long as the Secured Obligation/s is/are not fully paid. The Bank reserves the right to inspect the Mortgaged Property at any reasonable time of the day;
      2. Sale, Encumbrance or Removal. The Mortgagor shall not assign, sell, mortgage, alienate, lease out or otherwise dispose of or encumber or transfer possession of the Mortgaged Property, without the prior written consent of the Bank. In case of such consented sale, lease or mortgage of the Mortgaged Property, the Mortgagor shall expressly provide in the sale, lease or mortgage document that it is made subject to the prior rights of the Bank under this Agreement until all of the Secured Obligations shall have been fully paid. The Mortgage constituted herein and the sale of the Mortgaged Property in the event of foreclosure shall not be impaired nor affected by contracts of lease, sale or other mortgage hereafter entered into by the Mortgagor even if said contracts be registered with the Registry of Deeds.
      3. Property Insurance. The Mortgagor shall cause all the buildings, improvements and appurtenances in the Mortgaged Property to be sufficiently insured against loss or damage arising from fire, earthquake, flood, typhoon and other similar acts of God during the term of this Agreement and until the Secured Obligations are fully paid, in an amount not less than the outstanding balance of the Loan, with an insurance company acceptable to the Bank. The insurance policy shall contain a loss payable clause, satisfactory in form and substance to the Bank, whereby all sums payable under such policy shall be payable directly and unconditionally to the Bank. The proceeds of the insurance shall, at the option of the Bank, be applied toward the total or partial payment of the Secured Obligations.

The Mortgagor agrees and obligates himself to immediately endorse and deliver the policy or policies secured for the benefit and in favor of the Bank, and should there be any unendorsed policy, the Mortgagor renounces his right to collect the same personally in case loss or damage takes place, and this Agreement shall be considered a sufficient endorsement of each and all of said policies. To this end, the Mortgagor hereby appoints the Bank as his attorney-in-fact to claim, collect, prosecute claims related to, and receive the insurance proceeds; at the same time, the Mortgagor authorizes the insurance companies concerned to pay any indemnity that may be due the Mortgagor directly to the Bank upon mere presentation of this Agreement.

The Borrower acknowledges the Bank’s right to automatically apply the Loan amortization payments, in whole or in part, to the amounts so disbursed by the Bank. If the Bank pays such premiums, the Borrower shall pay the Bank the amount of the premiums so paid by the Bank, and the payment of such amount by the Bank shall be secured by this Mortgage.
      4. Mortgage Redemption Insurance. The Mortgagor shall secure a mortgage redemption insurance or financial security policy from an insurance company acceptable to the Bank for an amount not less than the outstanding amount of the Loan and assign, endorse and deliver the insurance policy in favor of the Bank so that the Bank, in case a claim is payable under said policy, may collect the amount payable and apply the same to the total or partial payment of the Loan obligations. The Mortgagor shall pay the premiums due on any and all mortgage redemption insurance or financial security policy required under this Section, and deliver to the Bank the insurance certificate or policy and the official receipts evidencing payment of premiums on or before the expiration of the relevant insurance certificate or policy. If the Mortgagor fails to secure a mortgage redemption insurance or financial security policy or to pay all premiums thereon when due, the Bank may, at its own option and without obligation to do so, advance the premium payments for the mortgage redemption insurance or financial security policy of the Mortgagor and any money so disbursed or advanced by the Bank shall be included in and form part of the Loan and the same shall be due and payable on the due date of the immediately following installment after the date of such insurance renewal, without need of any notice or demand upon the Borrower, which the Borrower hereby expressly waives. The Borrower acknowledges the Bank’s right to automatically apply the Loan amortization payments, in whole or in part, to the amounts so disbursed by the Bank. If the Bank pays such premiums, the Borrower shall pay the Bank the amount of the premiums so paid by the Bank, and the payment of such amount by the Bank shall be secured by this Mortgage.
      5. Assessments. The Mortgagor shall pay and discharge any and all taxes, fees and assessments that may be levied or assessed on the Mortgaged Property before they become delinquent or not later than ten (10) calendar days prior to the expiration of the ordinary period for making said payments, without penalties or surcharges, and deliver to the Bank the official receipts evidencing such payment. The Mortgagor will not suffer any lien to be created upon the Mortgaged Property. The Mortgagor will promptly notify the Bank of any levy, assessment or imposition of any charge or the filing of any lien, or enforcement of any writ of attachment, garnishment, execution or similar writ on the Mortgaged Property and shall take steps necessary to prevent the Mortgaged Property, or any part thereof, from being subjected to the possibility of loss, forfeiture or sale;
