        employees, MLOs or licensees, or the Borrower, or any other third party involved in the
        origination of the Loan. Broker shall indemnify and hold harmless Quadriga, as more fully set
        forth in Section 7 below, if fraud has occurred in the origination of such Loan. Broker
        understands and agrees that in the event Quadriga reasonably believes misrepresentation or fraud
        (e.g., instances of misstatements and/or inconsistencies generated either by the Broker or with the
        Broker’s knowledge) exists in a Loan Application, Loan Package or Loan document, Quadriga
        may report such misrepresentations or fraud to the appropriate state and federal regulatory
        authorities, law enforcement agencies, and fraud database. Broker acknowledges the importance
        of Quadriga’s rights and necessity to disclose such information. Broker waives any and all claims
        of liability, damages and equitable or administrative relief in connection with Quadriga’s
        disclosure of such information.

4. Broker Compensation. Broker shall negotiate its loan origination compensation with each Borrower in
accordance with the loan originator compensation requirements under TILA, its implementing Regulation
Z, and accompanying Official Staff Commentary, as well as the applicable state and local laws, rules and
regulations, governing mortgage broker compensation and mortgage broker agreements/disclosures.

    (a) Source of Compensation. For every Loan submitted to Quadriga by Broker, Broker must elect its
        source of compensation as Borrower Paid Compensation. For purposes of this Agreement,
        “Borrower Paid Compensation” shall mean Broker compensation paid by the Borrower to the
        Broker from the Borrower’s own funds or Loan proceeds. Borrower Paid Compensation shall not
        include any form of compensation or thing of value paid directly or indirectly by any person other
        than the Borrower, including lender rebates. Broker shall directly negotiate the terms of such
        compensation with the Borrower and such terms may vary with respect to each Loan transaction.
        The terms of such compensation shall be set forth in a fully executed mortgage broker agreement
        with the Borrower. A copy of the signed broker agreement shall be delivered to Quadriga with the
        Loan Package and Loan Application for purposes of including Broker’s compensation in the
        aggregate loan origination calculation disclosed on the RESPA Good Faith Estimate (“GFE”) and
        guaranteed for at least ten business days. Quadriga will not be for nor a party to any Broker
        negotiations with the Borrower in a Borrower Paid Compensation Loan transaction. By choosing
        to be paid by the Borrower, Broker acknowledge and agrees that it cannot and will not
        accept any compensation with respect to the related Loan, either directly or indirectly, from
        any other party or entity to the Loan transaction.

    (b) Anti-Steering Disclosure. In accordance Regulation Z, as amended from time to time, Broker
        acknowledges and agrees that steering a Borrower to accept a Loan based solely on the fact that
        Broker and/or Quadriga will receive greater compensation in connection with such Loan is
        prohibited, unless such transaction is in the Borrower’s interest. Broker acknowledges and agrees
        that, in order to comply with the foregoing, Broker shall provide each Borrower an anti-steering
        disclosure (“Disclosure”) describing the options presented to the Borrower for each type of Loan
        in which Borrower expressed an interest with respect to each Loan transaction. The Disclosure
        shall include, without limitation: (a) the Loan with the lowest interest rate, (b) the Loan with the
        lowest interest rate without negative features and (c) the Loan with the lowest total dollar amount
        for origination points or fees and discount points. Broker acknowledges and agrees that it shall
        cause the Borrower to sign the Disclosure and include such Disclosure in each Loan Package.

    (c) Loan Officer Compensation. Broker acknowledges and agrees that it shall be solely responsible
        for the payment of compensation, if any, to its loan officers and MLOs and that Quadriga shall
        have no liability for such payments, if any. Broker further acknowledges and agrees that all such
        compensation shall be paid in accordance with applicable law, rule and regulation, including
        without limitation TILA and Regulation Z and its accompanying Official Staff Commentary.

5. Payment of Broker Fees. Any fee payable to Broker for its provision of goods, services or facilities for
certain Loans, shall be paid in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and applicable law and only in
connection with a particular Loan, if each of the following conditions is met:

    (a) Broker has actually provided necessary goods, services and/or facilities in connection with the
        Loan;

    (b) Broker is in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and all
        terms of this Agreement and has submitted fully executed copies of all required disclosures,
        including without limitation the Disclosure, with the Loan Package;

    (c) Broker has submitted a copy of the GFE which Broker provided to Borrower that satisfies the
        requirements of applicable law;

    (d) With respect to each applicable Loan Application, Broker and Borrower have completed and
        executed a GFE which complies with RESPA and contains all applicable fees and charges.

        forth in the Broker completed GFE.

amounts at any time owing by the Broker to or for the credit or the account of the Broker against and on
account of the obligations and liabilities of the Broker to Quadriga under any agreement, irrespective of
whether or not Quadriga shall have made any demand thereof.

6. Representations, Warranties, and Covenants.

Broker agrees that upon breach of any of the representations, warranties or covenants contained in this
Agreement, or upon discovery by Quadriga that any fact represented by Broker, its agents, employees,
MLOs or any Borrowers under a Loan, Loan Package, Loan Application or other information relating to a
Loan are false, misleading, or misrepresentative, the purchase provisions set forth in Paragraph 9 below
shall apply. All representations, covenants, and warranties shall survive the funding, closing, and

assigns and shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

         6.2 As further inducement to Quadriga to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the
closing and funding of Loans hereunder, Broker makes the below referenced representations, warranties
and covenants effective both at the time a Loan Package or Loan Application is submitted to Quadriga for
consideration as well as the dates of Loan approval, funding and closing by Quadriga. Each of the
following representations and warranties (a) applies to any and all Loan Application or Loan Package by
Broker to Quadriga and funded by Quadriga, (b) is for the benefit of Quadriga and its successors and
assigns, (c) continues in full force and effect for so long as the Loan remains outstanding and for such
time that Quadriga is subject to any risk of loss or liability as to any Loan Application or Loan Package

submitted by Broker, (d) is deemed to have been relied on by Quadriga, regardless of any independent
investigation it may have made or may hereafter make, and (e) is in addition to any other specific
representations or warranties contained elsewhere herein.

    (a) The Loan will comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Broker
        has and will comply with all applicable local, state, and Federal laws, rules, and regulations, the
        SAFE Act, FCRA, ECOA, FHA, and TILA, including any implementing regulations of the above
        laws and any opinions issued or policy statements made by the agencies charged with issuing or
        interpreting such regulations. Broker has and will comply with RESPA and its implementing
        regulation, Regulation X, as amended from time to time, or any additional or successor legislation
        or regulation that governs the same subject matter. As used in this Agreement, RESPA refers to
        all requirements and restrictions that are imposed in regard to a "federally related mortgage loan"
        even if a Loan does not qualify as a "federally related mortgage loan" under RESPA.

    (b) The origination of the Loan complies in all respects with the terms of this Agreement and
        Quadriga’s lending guidelines. Each Loan Application submitted was originated by Broker and
        not by a third party. All applications for Loans and all Loan Packages, Information, and
        information and documentation submitted in connection with such Loan Applications have been
        prepared and/or completed in accordance with applicable law and all information provided by
        each of Borrower and Broker in such applications, Loan Packages, Information, or other
        documents are true and correct in all respects and do not fail to disclose any facts which could be
        material or which would make such information misleading. All Loan Packages submitted by
        Broker to Quadriga are true, correct, valid, genuine, and free of misrepresentation. Broker has no
        actual or constructive knowledge of omitted material facts or fraud with respect to the Loan
        Package that would adversely affect the validity of the Loan or enforceability of the related note.
        Broker has followed generally accepted mortgage industry procedures and practices that would
        uncover or disclose any false, fraudulent, inaccurate or erroneous facts contained in any Loan
        Package.

    (c) Broker has complied with the compensation provisions as described herein, any and all federal,
        state and local high cost loan limitations, and all applicable laws rules and regulations. All
        Broker compensation has been fully disclosed to Borrower in compliance with applicable laws.
        The Borrower has executed and received a copy of the Broker disclosure(s) as required by
        applicable law, including without limitation the disclosure required by Paragraph 4(e) hereunder,
        and there are no disputes with respect to Broker’s compensation in connection with the
        origination or closing of the Loan.

    (d) With regard to all Loans submitted to Quadriga hereunder, all facts relating to any Loan
        transaction which are known or should be known to Broker which may adversely affect the value
        of the mortgaged property, the credit, character or capability of the applicant, the validity of the
        mortgage, or any other aspect of the transaction have been disclosed in writing to Quadriga.

    (e) Except as otherwise permitted by Quadriga, Broker has not made, directly or indirectly, any
        payment on the Loan, the Loan application, or any fee paid for goods and services rendered in
        connection with the origination and closing of the Loan, or on any other loan of Borrower from
        any other person or entity. Broker has also not made any agreement with any Borrower providing
        for any variation of the note rate, schedule of payment or other terms and conditions of the Loan;
        and Broker has not received a request for approval of or notice of any proposed assumption, loss
        draft or payoff of the Loan.

    (f) Broker represents and warrants that any Loan submitted by Broker is not subject to any right of
        rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense and none of the terms of the Loan and none of the
        rights thereunder are unenforceable, in whole or in part, on account of any action by the Broker,
        and no such right or rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense has been asserted by the
        Borrower or any third party.

7. Indemnification. In addition to or at Quadriga’s sole discretion, as an alternative to the purchase
obligations in Paragraph 9 below, Broker shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Quadriga and its
affiliates and its and their officers, employees, directors, agents, shareholders, successors and assigns,
against all liability of loss, damage costs, expenses, and attorney's fees, including without limitation
repurchase demands from investors, resulting from or arising out of a breach of Broker's representations,
warranties, and covenants contained in Section 6 above, or by failure of Broker to perform any covenant
or condition under this Agreement.

9. Broker Purchase Obligation. Without limiting the rights and remedies of Quadriga set forth herein,
Broker agrees, upon Quadriga's written demand and at Quadriga’s sole discretion, to purchase any Loan
brokered by Broker from Quadriga, within ten (10) days of such written notice from Quadriga, for the
Purchase Amount (as such term is defined below) (a) in the event the Borrower fails to make a timely
monthly mortgage installment payment for each month within the first ninety (90) days following the
closing and funding of the related Loan, (b) if Broker breaches any representation, warranty or covenant
contained in this Agreement in regards to such Loan closed and funded by Quadriga or (c) if a Loan
submitted to Quadriga and subsequently closed and funded by Quadriga contains any intentional or
negligent misrepresentations made by Broker. Without limiting the foregoing purchase obligation and at
Quadriga‘s sole discretion, Broker may (x) refinance the related Loan and pay Losses (as defined below)
incurred by Quadriga, or (y) in the event a breach or misrepresentation as described herein results in a
material and adverse effect on such Loan, allow and provide assistance, as permitted, for Quadriga to
dispose of the Loan, by sale or other deposition, and pay Losses incurred by Quadriga as a result of such
breach or misrepresentation. For purposes of this Agreement, “Losses” shall mean an amount equal to the
amount funded by Quadriga for the Loan, less the amount of proceeds Quadriga actually receives for
such Loan, plus all claims, losses, damages, penalties, fines, forfeitures, legal fees and related costs,
judgments, and any other costs, fees and expenses that Quadriga may sustain in any way.

For purposes of this Agreement, the “Purchase Amount” shall mean an amount equal to (a) the original
principal Loan amount, less any principal reductions received by Quadriga, plus (b) all accrued and
unpaid interest on the Loan from the date of Quadriga's funding through the date of purchase by Broker,
plus (c) any and all costs incurred by Quadriga in connection with origination, processing, underwriting,
and funding the Loan, including without limitation any and all fees paid by Quadriga to Broker, plus (d)
any and all costs incurred by Quadriga in upholding and enforcing Broker's obligation to Purchase the
Loan, including reasonable attorney's fees and costs of suit.

10. [This section intentionally left blank.]

11. Independent Contractor. Quadriga and Broker agree that Broker is neither an agent nor an employee
of Quadriga and may not be construed as such because of this Agreement. For all purposes Broker is an
independent contractor, and is expressly prohibited from holding itself out as an agent, representative, or
employee of Quadriga. Broker shall not use Quadriga's name in any advertising without Quadriga's
express prior written consent.

12. Termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time, upon written notice to the other
party. Upon termination, Quadriga will return to Broker any Loan Packages that Quadriga is not obligated
to fund. Broker will pay to Quadriga the applicable document fees and/or third party fees for any Loan
returned under this paragraph for which documents have been drawn. All of Broker’s representations and
warranties in Paragraph 6 and obligations of indemnification in Paragraph 7 shall survive any termination
of the Agreement, and shall be fully applicable whether or not Quadriga relies thereon or has knowledge
of any facts at variance therewith.

20. Authorization to Verify Information. Approval of a broker application by Quadriga and execution of
this Agreement by both parties are required prior to participation in Quadriga’s wholesale lending
program. Broker and its owners, officers and employees are subject to a background check as part of
Quadriga’s application review process and on-going monitoring of brokers participating in Quadriga’s
wholesale lending program. These checks may be performed by Quadriga, its subsidiaries and affiliates,
or in whole or in part by a third party service provider (“Service Provider”) on Quadriga’s behalf. Broker
acknowledges that, as part of Quadriga’s application review process, Quadriga will receive for its review
and verification a broker application provided by Broker to Quadriga or Service Provider, and that either
or both of Quadriga and Service Provider may perform due diligence reviews of the broker application.
Broker hereby consents to this review process and to Quadriga’s use of the Broker Approval Application
and related materials (“the Broker Package”) as described herein and authorizes Quadriga, its subsidiaries
and affiliates, or Service Provider to verify any information contained in the Broker Package with the
sources referenced therein. Broker further authorizes Quadriga to consult such other sources, and perform
such additional due diligence as Quadriga deems necessary, in its sole discretion, to evaluate the Broker
Package and continuing qualification for participation in Quadriga’s wholesale lending programs. Broker
hereby gives its express consent to receive facsimile transmissions (hereafter referred to as “faxes”) from
Quadriga and its employees, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents and/or assigns, including, but not
limited to, those faxes that may constitute advertisements of the various loan programs, products and/or
services offered from time to time by Quadriga. This consent to receive faxes shall apply to all telephone
facsimile numbers of Broker, its employees or agents. This consent shall remain in effect until it is
revoked in a writing delivered to Quadriga at the address contained in this Agreement. Broker also agrees
that should it access any of Quadriga’s Loan Programs electronically that it will be subject to any separate
terms and conditions contained on Quadriga’s internet site.

21. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which is an
original, and taken together shall constitute one instrument.

22. Marketing Materials. The Broker hereby expressly grants to Quadriga the right to transmit all
materials (including marketing materials and rate sheets) necessary for or in connection with the parties’
performance under this Agreement to the undersigned via email and/or facsimile transmission at any of
the email addresses and/or facsimile telephone numbers on file for the Broker. This foregoing consent
shall remain in effect until such time as the undersigned party terminates the consent by notifying
Quadriga in writing. The consent granted herein shall be applicable to all of Quadriga’s officers, directors,
employees, agents, servants, and independent contractors. Broker has full knowledge of all statements
made and information provided in the Broker Package and other required documents.

23. Confidentiality. Broker agrees that information concerning Quadriga’s business (including that of all
corporate affiliates) is “Confidential Information” and proprietary and shall be maintained in confidence
and not disclosed, used, duplicated, published, disseminated or otherwise made available except as
described in this section. Confidential Information may include, without limitation, pricing sheets, lists of,
or other information relating to and identified with customers, former or prospective customers or
applicants, trade secrets, confidential and proprietary methods, techniques, processes, applications
approaches, and other information of Quadriga in various forms, which information is used or is useful in
the conduct of Quadriga’s business including Quadriga’s origination, purchase, and sale of mortgage
products and the subject matter of this Agreement. Broker may use Confidential Information of Quadriga
only in connection with performance under this Agreement. Except as described in this Agreement, the
parties shall not copy Confidential Information or disclose Confidential Information to person who does
not need Confidential Information in order to perform under this Agreement. Broker shall maintain an
appropriate information security program to prevent the unauthorized disclosure, misuse, alteration or
destruction of Confidential Information. Confidential Information shall be returned to Quadriga upon
termination of this Agreement. Confidential Information does not include information that is generally
known or available to the public or that is not treated as confidential by the party claiming such
information to be confidential, provided, however, that this exception shall not apply to any publicly
available information to the extent that the disclosure or sharing of the information by one or both parties
is subject to any limitation, restriction, consent or notification requirement under any applicable federal or
state information privacy law or regulation then in effect. In the event it is necessary for Broker to
disclose Confidential Information to a third party in order to perform Broker’s duties hereunder and
Quadriga has provided Broker with written authorization to do so, Broker shall disclose only such
Confidential Information as is necessary for such third party to perform its obligations to Broker. If
requested by Quadriga, any employee, representative, agent or subcontractor of Broker shall enter into a
non-disclosure agreement with Quadriga to protect the Confidential Information of Quadriga. A breach of
Broker’s confidentiality obligations may cause Quadriga to suffer irreparable harm in any amount not
easily ascertained. The parties agree that such breach, whether threatened or actual, will give the Quadriga
the right to obtain equitable relief (i.e., obtain an injection to restrain such disclosure or use without the
requirement of posting a bond), and pursue all other remedies Quadriga may have at law or in equity.
Neither party shall engage in any unauthorized disclosure, sharing, or use of any nonpublic personal
information of individual consumers which a party may receive from or on behalf of the other party, other
than for the lawful purpose for which such information was transmitted. Each party shall comply with
the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and its implementing regulations.

successors and assigns of any of the foregoing, of and from any and all claims, demands, actions, causes
of action, suits, damages, attorney’s fees, costs and expenses of suit, liabilities and judgments of
whatsoever kind (a “Claim”), by reason of any act or omission relating to Quadriga’s or Service
Provider’s use of the Broker Package or verification of any information contained therein. Broker further
indemnifies and agrees to defend and hold Quadriga harmless, as more fully set forth in Section 7 above,
with respect to any Claim made by any past, present or future owner, officer, or employee of Broker with
respect to such use or verification.

                                          Consequences

Loan fraud is costly for all parties involved. The following are a few of the potential
consequences that may be incurred:

                           Consequences to Broker/Salesperson/Employee

    1. Criminal prosecution
    2. Loss of applicable license, including without limitation, real estate license,
       mortgage loan originator license and/or sales license.
    3. Loss of Quadriga access to exchange of Information between Quadrigas.
    4. Submission of information to investors (including FHLMC/FNMA), police
       agencies, and applicable state or federal regulatory authority, including without
       limitation the California Department of Real Estate.
    4. Civil action by a Quadriga
    5. Civil action by applicant/Borrower or other parties to the transaction
    6. Loss of approval status with Quadriga

                                 Consequences to Borrower

    1. Acceleration of debt.
           FNMA/FHLMC Deed of Trust, revised 9/90, item #6 states: “Borrower
               shall also be in default if Borrower, during the loan application process,
               gave materially false or inaccurate information of statements to Quadriga
               (or failed to provide Quadriga with any material information) in
               connection with the loan evidenced by the note, including but not limited
               to, representations concerning Borrower’s occupancy of the property as a
               principal residence.”
                    o Note: Foreclosure under this section of the Deed of Trust does not
                       require the borrower to be in “payment default.” As such, the
                       Borrower will not have the benefit of reinstatement. In order to
                       cure the default, the Borrower must pay off the Loan in full prior
                       to the sale date of the related property.
    2. Criminal prosecution
    3. Civil action by Quadriga
    4. Civil action by other parties to the transaction
    5. Employment termination
    6. Loss of professional license, if any.
    7. Adverse effect on credit history.
