  1. In the event that the Depositor fails to comply with any Depositor’s obligations, Depositary may cause compliance therewith to be effected and pay out of the Deposit the amount required to effect compliance including any expense, disbursement and/or counsel fee incurred in connection therewith. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, Depositary is authorized without notice to Depositor to accelerate Depositor’s performance date at any time that Depositary, in its sole discretion, deems it advisable to do so to protect the title to the insured premises or the marketability thereof.
  2. Unless expressly provided in this Agreement otherwise, the Deposit will be held in a non-interest bearing escrow account, which account is subject to rules and conditions of the depository bank and of the FDIC, including a limit of $250,000 for insured account(s) of taxpayers and depositors, as applicable.
  3. Depositary will invoice Depositor and Depositor will pay any service charges at the time the Deposit is deposited with Depositary; provided, however, that the foregoing is not intended to limit Depositary’s right to assess any additional service charges for its services under this Agreement as may be provided in this Agreement and under law and regulation.
  4. Depositary may deduct from the Deposit any unpaid title charges or other sums due to Depositary and as an inducement to issue its policy of title insurance to its insured.  Depositor agrees to pay on demand any deficiency in case the Deposit is not sufficient and further agrees to hold Depositary harmless from any loss or expense it may sustain by reason of such insufficiency.
  5. Depositary accepts the Deposit at the request of and for the accommodation of Depositor and as an inducement to issue its policy of title insurance to its insured.  Depositor agrees to pay all charges and expenses, including counsel fees, incurred by Depositary by reason of its having accepted the Deposit. Depositary shall have the right to issue reinsurance and indemnifications based on the Deposit.  In such event, the Deposit shall continue to be held in accordance with its terms.
  6. The Deposit may not be assigned by Depositor.
  7. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Depositor and Depositary concerning the Deposit.
  8. No modification of any of Depositor’s obligations shall be effective unless authorized in writing by Depositary.
  9. If the Deposit is taken for more than one purpose, in the absence of agreement to the contrary, the allocation of the funds among the several purposes shall be at the sole discretion of Depositary.
  10. Depositor acknowledges that the waiver by Depositary of any particular provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any other provision contained herein.  Furthermore, in the event that any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
  11. Depositary agrees to refund the balance of the Deposit, if any, upon performance of the Depositor’s obligations to the satisfaction of Depositary.
  12. Depositor agrees that, unless stated otherwise, this agreement, and the money held hereunder, is between Depositor and named Depositary only.

Depositor executes and delivers this Agreement to induce Depositary in its capacity as title insurer to issue its policy or policies of title insurance with respect to the Premises and for other good and valuable consideration.
