FIRST LOSS ENDORSEMENT
Attached to Policy No. __________
STEWART TITLE GUARANTY COMPANY
In the event that a defect, lien, encumbrance, or other matter insured against by this Policy results in loss as determined under the Policy which exceeds (e.g., ten) percent of the Amount of Insurance stated in Schedule A, the amount which the company shall be liable to pay under the Policy shall be determined without requiring maturity of the indebtedness by acceleration or otherwise and without requiring the insured to pursue its remedies against other collateral securing the indebtedness.
In the event a loss is determined to exist under the Policy in accordance with the terms of this Endorsement, Company shall be subrogated to the rights, if any, of the insured at that time (other than maturity of the indebtedness) for any breach of warranty by reason of the defect, lien, encumbrance or other matter insured against. In all other respects, Company agrees that its rights of subrogation shall be subordinate to the rights and remedies which insured has or may have in accordance with paragraph 10 of the Conditions and Stipulations of the Policy.
