WHEREAS, HED has preliminarily reviewed and approved the making of a loan to All Saints Senior Housing, NFP, an Illinois not-for-profit corporation (the "Borrower"), in an amount not to exceed $900,000 (the "Loan"), to be funded from Multi-Family Program Funds pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in Exhibit A attached hereto and made a part hereof; and

WHEREAS, the City's conveyance of the City Property arid Catholic Charities' conveyance of the Catholic Charities Property to the Borrower in connection with the Project (as described in Exhibit A hereto) may qualify under the Donation Tax Credit Program as eligible donations, and may generate certain additional proceeds for the Project, but the receipt of such donations and proceeds is not a condition to the City's making the Loan; now, therefore,

SECTION 6. The following provisions shall govern the City's conveyance of the City Property to the Borrower:
(i) Form of Quitclaim Deed. The City shall convey to the Borrower title to the City Property by quitclaim deed for the sum of One and 00/100 Dollar ($1.00), which shall be paid by the Borrower to the City on the date the City conveys the City Property.

(d) any and all exceptions caused by the acts of the Borrower or its
agents.
The City shall use reasonable efforts to obtain the waiver or release of any delinquent real estate taxes or tax liens on the City Property prior to the closing, to the extent such taxes or tax liens can be waived or released through submission of an abatement letter to the Cook County Treasurer, a motion to vacate a tax sale or a petition for exemption. If the City is unable to obtain the waiver or release of any such tax liens or is unable to cause the title company to insure over such tax liens, or if the City Property is encumbered with any other unpermitted exceptions, the Borrower shall have the option to do one of the following: (a) accept title to the City Property subject to the unpermitted exceptions, which shall then become permitted exceptions; or (b) terminate this Agreement by delivery of written notice to the City at least fourteen (14) days prior to the closing date.
(ii) Financing. The Borrower shall not, without prior written consent of HED, which shall be in HED's sole discretion, engage in any financing or other transaction which would create an encumbrance or lien on the City Property (other than Financing described on Exhibit A).
(iii) The City Property. The closings for the City Property and Catholic Charities Property (both land conveyance and financing) shall take place simultaneously and sequentially (land conveyance followed by the financing closing) and on such date and at such place as the parties may mutually agree to in writing, but in no event earlier than the satisfaction of all conditions precedent to closing as the City may require and not later than December 31, 2011 (the "Outside Closing Date"), unless HED in its sole discretion extends the Outside Closing Date by up to six (6) months, for good cause shown by issuing a written extension letter.
(iv) Recordation of Quitclaim Deed. The Borrower shall promptly record the quitclaim deed for the City Property in the Office of the Recorder of Deeds of Cook County, Illinois. The Borrower shall pay all costs for so recording the quitclaim deed.
(v) Escrow. In the event that the Borrower requires conveyance through an escrow, the Borrower shall pay all escrow fees.
(vi) Environmental Condition of the City Property. The City makes no covenant, representation or warranty as to the soil or environmental condition of the City Property or the suitability of the City Property for any purpose whatsoever, and the Borrower agrees to accept the Property "as is". If after the closing of the City's conveyance of the City Property to the Borrower, the soil or environmental condition of the City Property is not in all respects entirely suitable for the use to which the City Property is to be utilized, it shall be the sole responsibility and obligation of the Borrower to take such action as is necessary to put the City Property in a condition suitable for such intended use. The Borrower agrees to release and indemnify the City from any claims and liabilities relating to or arising from the environmental condition of the City Property (including, without limitation, claims under CERCLA) and to undertake and discharge all liabilities of the City arising from any environmental condition which existed on the City Property prior to the closing.
 
SECTION 7. To the extent that any ordinance, resolution, rule, order or provision of the Municipal Code of Chicago, or part thereof, is in conflict with the provisions of this ordinance, the provisions of this ordinance shall control. If any section, paragraph, clause or provision of this ordinance shall be held invalid, the invalidity of such section, paragraph, clause or provision shall not affect any of the other provisions of this ordinance.
