AGREEMENT OF THE PARTIES
The language used in this Agreement will be deemed to be the language chosen by the parties hereto to express their mutual intent, and no rule of strict construction will be applied against any party hereto. Neither Executive nor the Company shall be entitled to any presumption in connection with any determination made hereunder in connection with any arbitration, judicial or administrative proceeding relating to or arising under this Agreement.
Agent Representing Both Lessor and Lessee
A real estate agent, either acting directly or through one or more associate licenses, can legally be the agent of both the Lessor and the Lessee in a transaction, but only with the knowledge and consent of both the Lessor and the Lessee. In a dual agency situation, the agent has the following affirmative obligations to both the Lessor and the Lessee: a. A fiduciary duty of utmost care, integrity, honesty and loyalty in the dealings with either Lessor or the Lessee. b. Other duties to the Lessor and the Lessee as stated above in subparagraphs (i) or (ii). In representing both Lessor and Lessee, the agent may not without the express permission of the respective Party, disclose to the other Party that the Lessor will accept rent in an amount less than that indicated in the listing or that the Lessee is willing to pay a higher rent than that offered. The above duties of the agent in a real estate transaction do not relieve a Lessor or Lessee from the responsibility to protect their own interests. Lessor and Lessee should carefully read all agreements to assure that they adequately express their understanding of the transaction. A real estate agent is a person qualified to advise about real estate. If legal or tax advice is desired, consult a competent professional.

Intent of the Parties; Reasonableness
Except with respect to Section 10.08, Section 10.11, Section 10.13, Section 10.14, Section 10.15, Section 10.16 and Section 10.17, the parties hereto acknowledge and agree that the purpose of this Article X is to facilitate compliance by the Depositor (and any Other Depositor of any Other Securitization that includes a Serviced Companion Loan) with the provisions of Regulation AB and related rules and regulations of the Commission. None of the Depositor, the Certificate Administrator or the Trustee shall exercise its rights to request delivery of information or other performance under these provisions other than in reasonable good faith, or for purposes other than compliance with the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and, in each case, the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder. The parties to this Agreement acknowledge that interpretations of the requirements of Regulation AB may change over time due to interpretive guidance provided by the Commission or its staff, and agree to comply, subject to Section 10.02, with reasonable requests made by the Depositor (or any Other Depositor or Other Trustee of any Other Securitization that includes a Serviced Companion Loan), the Certificate Administrator or the Trustee in reasonable good faith for delivery of information under these provisions on the basis of such evolving interpretations of Regulation AB (to the extent such interpretations require compliance and are not “grandfathered” and do not mandate compliance). In connection with the DBJPM 2017-C6 Mortgage Trust Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2017-C6 and any Other Securitization subject to Regulation AB that includes a Serviced Companion Loan, subject to the preceding sentence, each of the parties to this Agreement shall cooperate fully with the Depositor, the Certificate Administrator, the Trustee and any Other Depositor or Other Trustee of any Other Securitization that includes a Serviced Companion Loan, as applicable, to deliver or make available to the Depositor, the Certificate Administrator, the Trustee and any such Other Depositor or Other Trustee, as applicable (including any of their assignees or designees), any and all information in its possession and necessary in the reasonable good faith determination of the Depositor, the Certificate Administrator, the Trustee or such Other Depositor or Other Trustee, as applicable, to permit the Depositor or such Other Depositor, as applicable, to comply with the provisions of Regulation AB, together with such disclosure relating to the Master Servicer, the Special Servicer, the Operating Advisor, the Asset Representations Reviewer, the Certificate Administrator and the Trustee, as applicable, and any Servicing Function Participant, or the Servicing of the Serviced Mortgage Loans and any related Serviced Companion Loans, reasonably believed by the Depositor, the Certificate Administrator, the Trustee or the related Other Depositor or the related Other Trustee, as applicable, in good faith to be necessary in order to effect such compliance. Each party to this Agreement shall have a reasonable period of time to comply with any written request made under this Section 10.01, but in any event, shall, upon reasonable advance written request, provide information in sufficient time to allow the Depositor, the Certificate Administrator or the Trustee, as applicable, to satisfy any related filing requirements. For purposes of this Article X, to the extent any party has an obligation to exercise commercially reasonable efforts to cause a third party to perform, such party hereunder shall not be required to bring any legal action against such third party in connection with such obligation.
The preparation of this Agreement has been a joint effort of the parties, and the resulting document shall not be construed more severely against one of the parties than the other.
