                                                                 VI. EXCHANGE FUNDS

including monies deposited prior to the transfer of the Relinquished Property; received on account of the transfer of the
Relinquished Property; or further advanced or loaned by Exchanger in connection with the acquisition of the


I:\Trust Filing Cabinet\Agreements\Like Kind Agreement form dtd 05-09 – auto tab version                                    2
Replacement Property, shall be invested and reinvested by Intermediary in one of the following Institutional type money-
market accounts (select one):
          An institutional type Money Market Mutual Fund paying dividends accruing daily resulting in dividend payments
          that are generally taxable for federal income tax purposes.
                        A Fund consisting entirely of US Government guaranteed obligations.
                        A Fund consisting of Commercial Paper obligations in addition to US Government obligations.
          An institutional type Money Market Mutual Fund paying dividends accruing daily resulting in dividend payments
           that are generally tax-free for federal income tax purposes.
          Do not invest. Exchanger hereby requests that the Exchange Fund balances not be invested and instead left in
          cash, uninvested.
    In some instances, Intermediary will invest the Exchange Funds in mutual funds where the Intermediary provides
services to the mutual fund company for which it receives a fee (including 12b-1 fees). Exchanger acknowledges the
disclosure of these fees and expressly authorizes the receipt of such fees.
    2. Exchanger acknowledges that Exchanger must include any taxable earnings from the Exchange Funds in income
according to Exchanger’s method of accounting and hereby represents and certifies under penalties of perjury that
Exchanger is not a “foreign person” as defined by IRC Section 1445 and Regulations. Exchanger also certifies, as IRS
Substitute Form W-9, that:
          a.     The Tax Identification Number listed in Article XII, below, is the Exchanger’s correct Taxpayer
                 Identification Number (or the Exchanger is waiting for a number to be issued); and
          b.     The Exchanger is not subject to backup withholding because: (1) Exchanger is exempt from backup
                 withholding, or (2) Exchanger has not been notified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that Exchanger is
                 subject to backup withholding as a result of failure to report all interest or dividends, or (3) the IRS has
                 notified Exchanger that Exchanger is no longer subject to backup withholding, (you must cross out this
                 item (b), if Exchanger has been notified by the IRS that Exchanger is currently subject to backup
                 withholding); and
          c.     Exchanger is a U.S. person (including a U.S. resident alien), Sole Proprietor, Corporation, Partnership, or
                 Limited Liability Company (LLC) or Partnership (LLP).
    3. Except for Intermediary's acquisition of the Replacement Property, Exchanger shall have no ability or unrestricted
right to receive, pledge, borrow or otherwise obtain the benefits of any of the Exchange Funds held by Intermediary,
including any interest or growth factor on the Exchange Funds until the day following the last day of the Exchange
Period, except that: (a) if Exchanger has not identified Replacement Property by the end of the Identification Period (or
irrevocably certifies in writing his intent not to Identify Replacement Property), Exchanger shall, upon written demand,
have the right to receive, pledge, borrow or otherwise obtain the benefits of the Exchange Funds at any time after the end
of the Identification Period (or before end of Identification Period if irrevocable certification, described above, has been
received by Intermediary); or (b) if Exchanger has identified Replacement Property by the end of the Identification
Period, Exchanger shall, upon written demand, have the right to receive, pledge, borrow or otherwise obtain the benefits
of the Exchange Funds, after Exchanger's receipt of all of the Replacement Property to which Exchanger is entitled under
this Exchange Agreement. In the event Intermediary has accepted one or more Replacement Property Contract
Assignments for property that has not been acquired by Intermediary within the Exchange Period, and Intermediary
reasonably determines that it may be liable at law or in equity under such Replacement Property Contracts, the Exchange
Funds may be withheld from Exchanger until Intermediary obtains a release of liability under such Replacement Property
Contracts from Seller, or the Replacement Property Contracts are assigned to Exchanger, thereby releasing Intermediary
from all liability.
    4. In no event shall Intermediary be required to advance sums in excess of the Exchange Funds on account of the
Purchase of Replacement Property. Exchanger shall have the right (a) to advance funds to Intermediary in the event
amounts in excess of the available Exchange Funds are required to purchase the Replacement Property or (b) locate and
designate a lender or lenders from which Intermediary shall borrow funds, and in such event, Intermediary shall complete
such borrowing upon terms acceptable to Exchanger, provided that Intermediary shall have no personal liability with

I:\Trust Filing Cabinet\Agreements\Like Kind Agreement form dtd 05-09 – auto tab version                                   3
respect to such borrowing and shall not be required to execute any loan documents which do not contain appropriate
provisions exculpating Intermediary from personal liability there under.
     5. Intermediary shall be entitled to utilize Exchange Funds in order to (a) make earnest money deposits on
Replacement Property, (b) pay the balance of the purchase price due on the purchase of the Replacement Property, and
(c) pay any and all outstanding fees or charges owed to the Intermediary.
    6. Exchanger shall give detailed written notice (See Disbursement Request Authorization Form) to
Intermediary no less than two (2) business days prior to any required disbursement by Intermediary.
                                   VII. MANNER OF IDENTIFYING REPLACEMENT PROPERTY
    1. If Exchanger has not identified Replacement Property on or before the transfer of the Relinquished Property, it
shall be Exchanger's responsibility to identify Replacement Property before the end of the Identification Period.
Intermediary will consider Replacement Property as being identified only if it is designated as Replacement Property in a
written document signed by Exchanger and hand-delivered, sent by certified or registered mail, overnight courier, or
facsimile copied to Intermediary prior to the expiration of the Identification Period. The Replacement Property must be
unambiguously described in the written document either by a legal description, property identification number (PIN),
street address or distinguishable name. The form of the identification notice must be acceptable to Intermediary. The
written Identification of Replacement Property Notice is attached to this Agreement as Exhibit "D".
    2. Exchanger may identify more than one property as Replacement Property. However, regardless of the number of
Relinquished Properties transferred by Exchanger as part of the same deferred exchange, the maximum number of
Replacement Properties that Exchanger may identify is (a) three properties of any fair market value, or (b) any number of
properties as long as their aggregate fair market value as of the end of the Identification Period does not exceed 200
percent of the aggregate fair market value of all the Relinquished Properties.
    3. Exchanger may revoke an Identification of Replacement Property at any time before the end of the Identification
Period and identify substitute Replacement Property in substitution of any Replacement Property previously identified.
Intermediary will consider an identification of Replacement Property revoked only if the revocation is made in a written
document signed by Exchanger and hand-delivered, sent by certified or registered mail, overnight courier, or facsimile
copied to Intermediary prior to the expiration of the Identification Period or the acquisition of the Replacement Property,
whichever is earlier.
                                 VIII. ASSIGNMENT OF REPLACEMENT PROPERTY CONTRACT
    1. Any Replacement Property Contract shall (a) contain in form reasonably satisfactory to Intermediary, an
appropriate exculpatory provision limiting Intermediary's liability in the event of any alleged breach to the forfeiture of
the earnest money previously deposited with Seller's agent for the purchase of the Replacement Property; and (b) provide
that no duty, obligation, representation or warranty of Intermediary hereunder shall survive the closing under the
Replacement Property Contract, except for representations and warranties as to corporate authority and as to dealings
with brokers. If any Replacement Property Contract requires Intermediary to execute a purchase money note or mortgage
or an assignment of any lease or leases of all or any portion of the Replacement Property, such note, mortgage, or
assignment shall contain an appropriate provision exculpating Intermediary and any disclosed or undisclosed principals
of Intermediary from personal liability under such note, mortgage, or assignment.
   2. Exchanger agrees to assign to Intermediary, all of Exchanger's rights in any pending or future Replacement
Property Contract for the purchase of Replacement Property. Intermediary agrees to accept such assignment from
Exchanger, but not Exchanger's obligations under that Contract. The Replacement Property Contract is attached to this
Agreement as Exhibit "E".
    3. If any Replacement Property shall consist of a leasehold interest in real property and the Replacement Property
Contract or the lease being assigned there under shall require an assumption of the tenant's obligations under such lease
in connection with an assignment of such interest, then, in such event any such lease shall provide that Intermediary shall
be released of all obligations of the tenant accruing from and after such assignment or, in lieu thereof, there shall be
delivered to Intermediary at the time of such assignment the agreement of any such lessor to the effect that Intermediary
shall be released of all obligations accruing there under from and after such assignment. If any Replacement Property
Contract or transactions shall require Intermediary to execute a lease as lessor thereof, such lease shall provide that in the
event of any transfer or conveyance of title, the lessor of the lease shall be automatically freed and relieved, from and

I:\Trust Filing Cabinet\Agreements\Like Kind Agreement form dtd 05-09 – auto tab version                                    4
after the date of such transfer or conveyance, of all personal liability as respects the performance of any covenants or
obligations on the party of lessor contained in the lease thereafter to be performed.
    4. Exchanger represents that it will provide notice to Seller of the assignment of the Contract rights by Exchanger to
Intermediary, and that such notice will be given in writing on or before the date of the transfer of the Replacement
Property.
    5. Said assignment, acceptance and Seller's acknowledgement of receipt of the notice shall be in a form as may be
acceptable to Intermediary. The assignment and acceptance of the Replacement Property Contract are attached to this
Agreement as Exhibit "F" and the notice and acknowledgement by Seller are attached to this Agreement as Exhibit
"F1".
                              IX. ACQUISITION AND TRANSFER OF REPLACEMENT PROPERTY
    1. Provided one or more properties have been properly identified within the Identification Period, Intermediary shall
use its best efforts to acquire and transfer to Exchanger the Replacement Property so identified at such prices and upon
such other terms and conditions as have been pre-approved by Exchanger. The transfer to Exchanger of any such
Replacement Property must occur within the Exchange Period. Exchanger acknowledges that in connection with
Intermediary's acquisition of the Replacement Property, Intermediary shall have the right to disclose to Seller that
Intermediary is, and is acting only as, Exchanger's Intermediary. The Replacement Property shall be acquired with the
Exchange Funds, including any additional amounts deposited thereto by Exchanger, with any remaining Exchange Funds
then being held to acquire any other Replacement Property identified during the Identification Period.
    2. In accordance with applicable IRS Regulations, Intermediary may provide a written direction to Seller to deliver
directly to Exchanger a deed conveying the Replacement Property to Exchanger in satisfaction of Intermediary's
obligations as assignee of the Contract. Intermediary's written direction to Seller to deliver the deed directly to
Exchanger is included in the Assignment and Acceptance of the Replacement Property Contract, attached as Exhibit "F"
and in Seller's acknowledgement, attached as Exhibit "F1".
                                                                  X. DIRECT DEEDING
    Notwithstanding any previously executed assignments as contemplated by this Agreement, the parties acknowledge
and agree that Intermediary may direct Exchanger to deliver directly to Purchaser a deed conveying the Relinquished
Property. Further, Intermediary may direct Seller to deliver directly to Exchanger a deed conveying the Replacement
Property, without the necessity of either the Relinquished Property or the Replacement Property being titled into the
name of Intermediary. Intermediary shall for purposes of this Exchange Agreement, be considered to have acquired the
Relinquished Property and transferred it to Purchaser and to have acquired the Replacement Property and transferred it to
Exchanger, all in accordance with applicable IRS Regulations.
                                                                XI. INDEMNIFICATION
    1. If Intermediary shall make any advances or incur any expenses under this Agreement, the Relinquished Property
Contract or the Replacement Property Contract; or shall incur any expenses by reason of being a party to any litigation in
connection with or arising out of any of the terms and provisions of this Agreement, the Relinquished Property Contract
or the Replacement Property Contract; or if Intermediary shall be compelled to pay any money on account of this
Agreement, the Relinquished Property Contract or the Replacement Property Contract or otherwise, whether as a tax, or
for breach of contract, injury to person or property, or fines or penalties under any law including, without limitation,
under any federal, state or local law with respect to environmental matters or hazardous wastes, or otherwise, Exchanger
agrees to pay to Intermediary on demand, with interest at the Intermediary’s prime lending rate in effect on the date such
payments or advances are made by the Intermediary plus two percent (2%), the amount of all such advances or payments
made by Intermediary, plus all of Intermediary's out-of-pocket expenses and reasonable attorneys' fees. Exchanger’s
obligations hereunder shall include, without limitation, and whether foreseeable or unforeseen, all costs of any required
or necessary repair, cleanup or detoxification or decontamination of any of said Property or any improvements, and the
preparation and implementation of any closure, remedial action or other required plans in connection therewith, and these
obligations to indemnify Intermediary shall survive the transfer of any such Property or improvements to Intermediary’s
successor in interest. Intermediary shall not be required to pay any Exchange Funds or any part of the Exchange Funds
until all of such expenses, payments, or advances made or incurred by Intermediary (including Intermediary's fees and
costs) shall have been paid, together with interest at the above stated rate, where required hereunder. Intermediary shall
not be obligated to pay any money under this Agreement, the Relinquished Property Contract or the Replacement

I:\Trust Filing Cabinet\Agreements\Like Kind Agreement form dtd 05-09 – auto tab version                                5
Property Contract to prosecute or defend any legal proceeding involving this Agreement, the Relinquished Property
Contract or the Replacement Property Contract unless it is furnished with sufficient funds or is indemnified by Exchanger
to Intermediary's satisfaction. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Intermediary shall
be under no obligation to disburse any part of the Exchange Funds if Intermediary reasonably determines that it may be
held accountable to any person or entity for any amount of money or for any other damages or remedies, including those
of an equitable nature, unless it shall elect to do so and is furnished with sufficient funds or is indemnified by Exchanger
to Intermediary's satisfaction.
     2. Exchanger hereby agrees that Intermediary shall not be required to assume or bear any personal obligation or
liability in dealing with the Relinquished Property, the Replacement Property, the Relinquished Property Contract or the
Replacement Property Contract or to make itself liable for any damages, costs, expenses, fines or penalties relating to or
arising out of such properties or agreements. Intermediary shall not be liable for any loss, liability, expense or damage to
the Replacement Property occasioned by its acts or omission in good faith and in any event Intermediary shall be liable
only for its own willful misconduct or gross negligence, but not for errors of judgment. All contracts, agreements or
other instruments executed by Intermediary pursuant to this Agreement, the Relinquished Property Contract or the
Replacement Property Contract shall, as to Exchanger and any person claiming by, through or under Exchanger, be
deemed to include a provision exculpating Intermediary from any personal liability there under and limiting recourse to
the value of the Exchange Funds. Exchanger hereby agrees that Intermediary shall be held harmless and fully
indemnified by Exchanger for acting on behalf of Exchanger pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, the Relinquished
Property Contract or the Replacement Property Contract and this indemnity shall survive the end of the Exchange Period
and the termination of this Agreement. Exchanger's designation of Intermediary to act on Exchanger's behalf pursuant to
the terms of this Agreement is intended to conform to, and shall be construed in a manner consistent with, IRC Section
1031 and the Regulations there under. Exchanger shall contribute such additional funds to Intermediary as shall be
necessary to protect Intermediary from any of the aforesaid liabilities or to enable Intermediary to complete the
conveyances of the Relinquished Property and the Replacement Property.
     3. Intermediary shall not be responsible or in default under this Agreement for any damages, losses, or expenses
incurred by Exchanger on account of Exchanger's failure to locate or negotiate for Replacement Property acceptable to it;
to borrow or locate funds to acquire the Replacement Property; the failure of any Replacement Property to qualify as
"like-kind" property as required by the IRC and Regulations, and the resulting tax consequences there from; or the failure
of the transaction to provide Exchanger the benefits of IRC Section 1031.
    4. Exchanger is solely responsible for (i) all tax consequences arising out of this Agreement, the Relinquished
Property Contract and Replacement Property Contract, and (ii) monitoring the expiration of the Identification Period and
the Exchange Period.
     5. Intermediary is not acting as tax advisor or legal counsel for Exchanger, Purchaser, Seller, or for any other party
connected with either this Agreement or the properties governed by this Agreement. Exchanger hereby represents to
Intermediary that it has obtained independent professional advice from an attorney (or other advisors), who has reviewed
this Agreement, regarding federal, state and local tax, legal and practical consequences of the transactions contemplated
by this Agreement, the Relinquished Property Contract and the Replacement Property Contract, and Exchanger
acknowledges and expressly agrees that Exchanger is not relying on any advice of Intermediary with respect to any of the
matters set forth in this Agreement or as described under IRC Section 1031.
    6. Intermediary shall not be liable for the loss of any principal which is invested as part of the Exchange Funds, or
for the performance or lack of performance of those Exchange Funds, except for Intermediary's willful misconduct or
gross negligence.
    7. The covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement, including, without limitation, any indemnities
contained herein shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated
hereby. All representations, warranties, covenants and agreements made herein or in any certificate or other document
furnished to a party hereto pursuant to or in anticipation of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been relied upon by
the party to whom such certificate or other document is furnished notwithstanding any investigation heretofore or
hereafter made, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as there remains unperformed any obligation hereunder.
