3. NATURE OF GUARANTEE
This Guarantee guarantees completion of the Improvement. This Guarantee shall remain in full
force and effect until all indebtedness owed by Borrower pursuant to the Agreement has been
paid in full to Lender, its successors or assigns. This Guaranty is an original and independent
obligation of Guarantor, separate and distinct from Borrower's obligations to Lender under the
Agreement. The obligations of Guarantor to Lender under this Guaranty are direct and primary,
regardless of the validity or enforceability of the Agreement. This Guaranty is for the benefit of
Lender, and is not for the benefit of any third party.
Guarantor shall not be released by any act or thing which might be construed as a legal or
equitable discharge of a guarantor or surety, or by reason of any waiver, extension, modification,
forbearance or delay or other act or omission of Lender. Guarantor hereby expressly waives and
surrenders any defense to liability hereunder based upon any of the foregoing acts, omissions,
things, agreements or waivers or any of them (other than completion), it being the purpose and
intent of the parties hereto that the obligations of the undersigned hereunder are absolute and
unconditional under any and all circumstances. Guarantor hereby waives the right to seek
payment, claim, subrogation and/or reimbursement from Borrower in the event Guarantor makes
payment to Lender or otherwise specifically performs pursuant to the terms hereof. Guarantor
shall have no right of subrogation, and waives any right to enforce any remedy that Lender now
has or may hereafter have against Borrower, and waives any benefit of and any right to enforce
any remedy that Lender now has or may hereafter have against Borrower, and waives any benefit
of and any right to participate in any security now or hereafter held by Lender. This guaranty
shall be a continuing, absolute and unconditional guaranty regardless of the validity, regularity or
enforceability of any of said obligations or purported obligations or the fact that a security
interest, as a lien on any collateral security may not be granted to, conveyed to, or created in
favor or Lender or that collateral security may be subject to equities or defenses or claims in
favor of others or may be invalid or defective in any way and for any reason including any
action, or failure to act, by Lender.
a. This Guarantee constitutes the entire agreement between the parties hereto with
respect to the specific subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements or
understandings of any kind with respect to the specific subject matter hereof.
b. In the event that any provision or part of this Guarantee shall be deemed void or
invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions or parts shall be and
remain in full force and effect.
