STEWART TITLE GUARANTY COMPANY

   The Company has been informed by the insured that certain of the obligations secured by the lien of the insured mortgage consist of a guaranty of the repayment of a loan or loans made, or to be made, to a person or entity other than the mortgagor under the insured mortgage. Subject to the Exclusions from Coverage and the Exceptions from Coverage in Schedule B, the Company agrees as follows:


1. The insurance provided by this policy respecting the priority of the lien of the insured mortgage as security for the guaranty of payment of any amounts of said loan or loans which are actually disbursed at Date of Policy shall be the identical to that which the policy would provide if the insured mortgage directly secured the repayment of the loan or loans; and

  Advances made subsequent to the Date of Policy and in accordance with the terms of the Insured Mortgage providing security for revolving credit loan advances pursuant to the Credit Agreement and during the term provided for the revolving credit loan advances will be secured by the Insured Mortgage with the same priority over liens, encumbrances and the rights of purchasers for value without notice that this Policy insures to exist for amounts secured by the Insured Mortgage which were advanced prior to the Date of Policy.

  (i) Taxes, assessments, costs, charges, damages and other obligations to the government secured by statutory liens;

  (iv) Mechanic’s and Materialmen’s liens. (Can delete if no recent or contemplated construction only if requested.)

 

  (v) (Missouri only) Advances made subsequent to notice of termination unless the lender complies with paragraph 9 of Section 443.0355 Missouri Statutes.

(LEAVE THIS SPECIFIC LANGUAGE IN)
