(a) The invalidity or unenforceability of the lien of the Insured Mortgage as security for the Indebtedness caused by the provisions for Shared Appreciation; or
(b) Loss of priority of the lien of the Insured Mortgage as security for the Indebtedness caused by the provisions for Shared Appreciation.

(d) failure to comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding Shared Appreciation;
(e) the stay, rejection or avoidance of the lien of the Insured Mortgage as security for the Shared Appreciation, or a court order providing some other remedy, by the operation of federal bankruptcy, state insolvency, or similar creditors’ rights laws; or
(f) the invalidity, unenforceability or lack of priority of the lien of the Insured Mortgage as security for the Indebtedness because all applicable mortgage recording or similar intangible taxes were not paid.
