additional amounts may be advanced by the Lender as provided in the documents securing this Note, and
such advances will be added to the principal of this Note and will accrue interest at the rate specified in the
Note from the date of advance until paid.

  1. LOAN. This Note evidences a loan ("Loan") made by Lender to Borrower under the Single-Family
     Rehabilitation Program (the "Program"), which is administered by the North Carolina Housing Finance
     Agency (the "Agency"). The Loan is secured by a Deed of Trust, ("Deed of Trust") dated the same date
     as this Note, and which is a lien on the property described in the Deed of Trust (the "Property") . All
     terms of the Deed of Trust are incorporated in this Note by reference, and any default under the Deed
     of Trust shall be a default under this Note.

  2. TERM. The term of the Loan shall be for                                 (      ) years from the date of this
     Note (the "Maturity Date").

  3. PAYMENT. Principal and interest shall be due and payable as follows:

       ONE INSTALLMENT OF ALL OUTSTANDING PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST, IF ANY, UPON
       THE MATURITY DATE, OR EARLIER ACCELERATION, AS SET FORTH HEREIN SUBJECT
       TO REDUCTION OF PRINCIPAL AS FULLY SET OUT BELOW.


     So long as Borrower is not in default, the balance due under this Note shall automatically be reduced by
     three thousand ($3,000.00) on each anniversary date of this Note such that on the Maturity Date the
     outstanding principal balance due will be zero ($0.00).

     If any default by the Borrower under this Note, the Deed of Trust or any other document executed in
     connection with the Loan occurs during the term of this Note, then, at Lender's option, the entire
     outstanding balance of this Note shall become immediately due and payable, as herein provided.

4. LATE CHARGE FOR OVERDUE PAYMENTS.                          Intentionally deleted.
5. ASSUMPTION. The Loan may be assumed only upon the prior written approval of the Agency.
   The Agency shall not unreasonably deny requests for assumptions by an heir or buyer who meet
   the Program eligibility requirements and are so certified. Any and all terms and conditions of the
   Note and Deed of Trust shall remain in effect for any successor to the Borrower and any successor
   shall assume all duties and obligations of the Borrower.

6. DEFAULT. The amount owed under this Note Shall be immediately due and payable, at Lender's
   option, upon the occurrence of the following events.

    A. If ( i ) all or any part of the Property, or any interest therein, is sold or transferred by the
       Borrower, whether voluntary or involuntary, or by operation of law, without Lender's prior
       written consent, ( ii ) the Property is not occupied by Borrower as Borrower's principal
       residence, including upon Borrower's death, or ( iii ) the Property is used as rental property
       during the term of this Note;

    B. Default, after any applicable cure period, if any under the terms of this Note, the Deed of Trust
       or any other loan document executed in connection with the Loan.

    Upon default, Lender may without further notice, declare the remainder of the principal sum,
    together with all unpaid interest accrued and other fees and charges at once due and payable. Also
    upon default, Lender may employ an attorney to enforce Lender's rights and remedies, and the
    Borrower agrees to pay Lender all reasonable attorney's fees, plus all other reasonable expenses
    incurred by the Lender in exercising any of Lender's rights and remedies upon default. The rights
    and remedies of Lender as provided by law, by this Note, by the Deed of Trust, and by any other
    instruments securing this note, shall be cumulative and may be pursued singly, successively, or
    together in the sole discretion of the Lender. The failure to exercise any such right or remedy shall
    not be waiver or release of such rights or remedies or the right to exercise any of them at another
    time. The unpaid principal of this Note and any part thereof, accrued interest and all other fees
    and charges due under this Note and Deed of Trust, if any, shall bear interest at rate of ten percent
    (10%) per annum after default until paid.

7. WAIVER. Borrower and any other person who has obligations under this Note waive the rights
   of presentment and notice of dishonor. "Presentment" means the right to require Lender to
   demand payment of amounts due. "Notice of dishonor" means the right to require Lender to give
   notice to other persons that amounts due have not been paid. Borrower and any other person or
   entity who has obligations under this Note agree that their obligations shall continue even if
   Lender has agreed to the release, modification or substitution of any security for this Note or to any
   extensions of time for the payment of principal and interest under this Note.

   amount not to exceed                          for the reduction of potential health hazards
   associated with the presence of lead-based paint as required under the SFR Program Guidelines.
   In addition to any other remedies available under the grant procedures, failure to use the grant
   funds on such approved improvements shall constitute a default under this note.

   the State of North Carolina.

10. ASSIGNMENT. This Note May Be assigned by Borrower only upon the prior written consent of
    the Lender, which may be given or withheld in Lender's sole discretion. Lender may assign this
