The Company insured against loss or damage sustained by the insured by reason of the entry of a final court order or decree of a court of competent jurisdiction determining:
|(a) That the lien of the mortgage described in Schedule A is invalid as security for payments the insured is legally obligated to make and does make under the terms of the letter of credit described in said mortgage,
|(b) That the payments described in (a) are not entitled to the same lien priority over liens, encumbrances, and other matters disclosed by the public records subsequent to the date of Policy as would be afforded to payments made at the date of Policy, or
|(c) That the lien securing the payment described in (a) is subject to avoidance under Sections 544, 547, 548 or 549 of the Bankruptcy Code (as such sections exist as of the date of this Endorsement) in a proceeding naming the mortgagor as debtor.|
THIS ENDORSEMENT MAY NOT BE ISSUED WITHOUT APPROVAL FROM STEWART TITLE GUARANTY UNDERWRITING PERSONNEL

Except to the extent expressly stated, it neither modifies any of the terms and provisions of the Policy and any prior endorsements, nor does it extend the Effective Date of the Policy and any prior endorsements, nor does it increase the face amount thereof.
