CC&R ARTICLE 10: MORTGAGEE PROTECTION
Section 10.1 Priority of Mortgages. Notwithstanding all other provisions hereof, the liens created under this Declaration upon any Lot for assessments shall be subject to tax liens on the Lot in favor of any assessing and/or special district and be subject to the rights of the secured party in the case of any indebtedness secured by first lien mortgages or deeds of trust which were made in good faith and for value upon the Lot. A mortgagee of a Lot, or other purchaser of a Lot, who obtains possession of a Lot as a result of foreclosure or deed in lieu thereof will be liable for any assessment accruing after such possession. Such unpaid share of common expenses or assessments shall be deemed to be common expenses collectible from all of the Lot Owners including such possessor, his successor and assigns. For the purpose of this Article, the terms "mortgage" and "mortgagee" shall not mean a real estate contract (or the vendor thereunder), or a mortgage or deed of trust (or mortgagee or beneficiary thereunder) securing a deferred purchase price balance owed with respect to a sale by an individual Lot Owner other than Declarant.
 
Section 10.2 Effect of Declaration Amendments. No amendment of this Declaration shall be effective to modify, change or limit or alter the rights expressly conferred upon mortgagees in this instrument with respect to any unsatisfied mortgage duly recorded unless the amendment shall be consented to in writing by the holder of such mortgage. Any provision of this Article conferring rights upon mortgagees which is inconsistent with any other provision of this Declaration shall control over such other inconsistent provisions.
 
Section 10.3 Rights of Lien Holders. A breach of any of the provisions, conditions, restrictions, covenants, easements or reservations herein contained shall not affect or impair the lien or charge of any bona fide mortgage made in good faith for value on any Lots; provided, however, that any subsequent Owner of the Lot shall be bound by these provisions whether such Owner's title was acquired by foreclosure or trustee's sale or otherwise.
 
Section 10.4 Copies of Notices. If the first mortgagee of any Lot has so requested of the Association in writing, the Association shall give written notice to such first mortgagee that an Owner/mortgagor of a Lot has for more than 60 days failed to meet any obligation under this Declaration. Any first mortgagee shall, upon written request, also be entitled to receive written notice of all meetings of the Association and be permitted to designate a representative to attend such meetings.
 
Section 10.5 Furnishing of Documents. The Association shall make available to prospective purchasers, mortgagees, insurers, and guarantors, at their request, current copies of the Declaration, Bylaws, and other rules governing the Property, and the most recent balance sheet and income/expense statement for the Association, if any has been prepared.
