USURY ENDORSEMENT

The Company hereby insures the Insured against loss or damage which the Insured shall sustain by reason of the entry of any court order or judgment which constitutes a final determination and adjudges:

a) that the lien of the mortgage referred to in Schedule A is invalid or unenforceable as to the principal and interest due on the note secured thereby, said interest being computed in accordance with the provisions of such note and the note or notes secured thereby are usurious;

b) that any part of the principal and interest, said interest having been computed in accordance with the provisions of such mortgage and the note or notes secured thereby which has been paid to the insured must be repaid or that a penalty for usury must be paid to the person claiming the same on the ground that the amount of interest so paid violated the usury laws.

The insurance against usury risks afforded by this endorsement and its effect on the title insurance under the policy to which it is attached, shall survive the satisfaction of the mortgage or trust deed, the lien of which is thus insured.
