6. Real Estate Taxes and Assessments. Real estate taxes and installments of special assessments which are due and payable in
the year in which this Contract is dated shall be paid as follows:
Purchaser shall pay, before penalty accrues, all real estate taxes and installments of special assessments assessed against the Property
which are due and payable in all subsequent years. Seller warrants that the real estate taxes and installments of special assessments which
were due and payable in the years preceding the year in which this Contract is dated are paid in full. If the Property is subject to a recorded
declaration providing for assessments to be levied against the Property by any owners’ association, Purchaser shall promptly pay, when due,
all assessments imposed by the owners’ association or other governing body as required by the provisions of the declaration or other related
documents.
7. Property Insurance.
(a) Insured Risks and Amounts. Purchaser shall keep all buildings, improvements, and fixtures now or later located on or a part
of the Property insured against loss by fire, lightning and such other perils as are included in a standard “all-risk” endorsement, and
against loss or damage by all other risks and hazards covered by a standard extended coverage insurance policy, including, without
limitation, vandalism, malicious mischief, burglary, theft and, if applicable, steam boiler explosion. Such insurance shall be in an
amount no less than the full replacement cost of the buildings, improvements, and fixtures, without deduction for physical
depreciation. If any of the buildings, improvements, or fixtures are located in a federally designated flood prone area, and if flood
insurance is available for that area, Purchaser shall procure and maintain flood insurance in amounts reasonably satisfactory to
Seller.
(b) Other Terms. The insurance policy shall contain a loss payable clause in favor of Seller which provides that Seller’s right to
recover under the insurance shall not be impaired by any acts or omissions of Purchaser or Seller, and that Seller shall otherwise be
afforded all rights and privileges customarily provided a mortgagee under the so-called standard mortgage clause.
(c) Notice of Damage. In the event of damage to the Property by fire or other casualty, Purchaser shall promptly give notice of
such damage to Seller and the insurance company.
8. Damage to the Property.
(a) Application of Insurance Proceeds. If the Property is damaged by fire or other casualty, the insurance proceeds paid on
account of such damage shall be applied to payment of the amounts payable by Purchaser under this Contract, even if such
amounts are not then due to be paid, unless Purchaser makes a permitted election described in the next paragraph. Such amounts
shall be first applied to unpaid accrued interest and next to the installments to be paid as provided in this Contract in the inverse
order of their maturity. Such payment shall not postpone the due date of the installments to be paid pursuant to this Contract or
change the amount of such installments. The balance of insurance proceeds, if any, shall be the property of Purchaser.
(b) Purchaser’s Election to Rebuild. If Purchaser is not in default under this Contract, or after curing any such default, and if the
mortgagees in any prior mortgages and sellers in any prior contracts for deed do not require otherwise, Purchaser may elect to have
that portion of such insurance proceeds necessary to repair, replace, or restore the damaged Property (the “Repairs”) deposited in
escrow with a bank or title insurance company qualified to do business in the State of Minnesota, or such other party as may be
mutually agreeable to Seller and Purchaser. The election may only be made by written notice to Seller within sixty (60) days after the
damage occurs. Also, the election will only be permitted if the plans and specifications and contracts for the Repairs are approved by
Seller, which approval Seller shall not unreasonably withhold or delay. If such a permitted election is made by Purchaser, Seller and
Purchaser shall jointly deposit, when paid, such insurance proceeds into such escrow. If such insurance proceeds are insufficient for
the Repairs, Purchaser shall, before the commencement of the Repairs, deposit into such escrow sufficient additional money to
insure the full payment for the Repairs. Even if the insurance proceeds are unavailable or are insufficient to pay the cost of the
Repairs, Purchaser shall at all times be responsible to pay the full cost of the Repairs. All escrowed funds shall be disbursed by the
Page 4 of 6
Minnesota Uniform Conveyancing Blanks Form 30.1.1
escrowee in accordance with generally accepted sound construction disbursement procedures. The costs incurred or to be incurred
on account of such escrow shall be deposited by Purchaser into such escrow before the commencement of the Repairs. Purchaser
shall complete the Repairs as soon as reasonably possible and in a good and workmanlike manner, and in any event the Repairs
shall be completed by Purchaser within one (1) year after the damage occurs. If, following the completion of and payment for the
Repairs, there remains any undisbursed escrow funds, such funds shall be applied to payment of the amounts payable by Purchaser
under this Contract in accordance with paragraph 8(a) above.
(c) Owners’ Association. If the Property is subject to a recorded declaration, so long as the owners’ association maintains a
master or blanket policy of insurance against fire, extended coverage perils and such other hazards and in such amount as are
required by this Contract, then: (i) Purchaser’s obligation in the Contract to maintain hazard insurance coverage on the Property is
satisfied; (ii) the provisions of paragraph 8(a) of this Contract regarding application of insurance proceeds shall be superseded by the
provisions of the declaration or other related documents; and (iii) in the event of a distribution of insurance proceeds in lieu of
restoration or repair following an insured casualty loss to the Property, any such proceeds payable to Purchaser are hereby assigned
and shall be paid to Seller for application to the sum secured by this Contract, with the excess, if any, paid to Purchaser.
9. Injury or Damage Occurring on the Property.
(a) Liability. Seller shall be free from liability and claims for damages by reason of injuries occurring on or after the date of this
Contract to any person or persons or property while on or about the Property. Purchaser shall defend and indemnify Seller from all
liability, loss, cost, and obligations, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, on account of or arising out of any such injuries. However,
Purchaser shall have no liability or obligation to Seller for such injuries which are caused by the negligence or intentional wrongful
acts or omissions of Seller.
(b) Liability Insurance. Purchaser shall, at Purchaser’s own expense, procure and maintain liability insurance against claims for
bodily injury, death and property damage occurring on or about the Property in amounts reasonably satisfactory to Seller and naming
Seller as an additional insured.
10. Insurance Generally. The insurance which Purchaser is required to procure and maintain pursuant to paragraphs 7 and 9 of this
Contract shall be issued by an insurance company or companies licensed to do business in the State of Minnesota and acceptable to Seller.
The insurance shall be maintained by Purchaser at all times while any amount remains unpaid under this Contract. The insurance policies shall
provide for not less than ten (10) days written notice to Seller before cancellation, non-renewal, termination or change in coverage, and
Purchaser shall deliver to Seller a duplicate original or certificate of such insurance policy or policies.
11. Condemnation. If all or any part of the Property is taken in condemnation proceedings instituted under power of eminent domain
or is conveyed in lieu thereof under threat of condemnation, the money paid pursuant to such condemnation or conveyance in lieu thereof shall
be applied to payment of the amounts payable by Purchaser under this Contract, even if such amounts are not then due to be paid. Such
amounts shall be applied in the same manner as a prepayment as provided in paragraph 5 of this Contract. Such payments shall not postpone
the due date of the installments to be paid pursuant to this Contract or change the amount of such installments. The balance, if any, shall be
the property of Purchaser.
12. Waste, Repair, and Liens. Purchaser shall not remove or demolish any buildings, improvements, or fixtures now or later located
on or a part of the Property, nor shall Purchaser commit or allow waste of the Property. Purchaser shall maintain the Property in good condition
and repair. Purchaser shall not create or permit to accrue liens or adverse claims against the Property which constitute a lien or claim against
Seller’s interest in the Property. Purchaser shall pay to Seller all amounts, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred
by Seller to remove any such liens or adverse claims.
13. Compliance with Laws. Except for matters which Seller has created, suffered, or permitted to exist prior to the date of this
Contract, Purchaser shall comply or cause compliance with all laws and regulations of any governmental authority which affect the Property or
the manner of using or operating the same, and with all restrictive covenants, if any, affecting title to the Property or the use thereof.

14. Recording of Contract; Deed Tax. Purchaser shall, at Purchaser’s expense, record this Contract in the Office of the County
Recorder or Registrar of Titles in the county in which the Property is located within four (4) months after the date hereof. Purchaser shall pay
any penalty imposed under Minn. Stat. 507.235 for failure to timely record the Contract. Seller shall, upon Purchaser’s full performance of this
Contract, pay the deed tax due upon the recording of the deed to be delivered by Seller.
15. Notice of Assignment. If either Seller or Purchaser assigns its interest in the Property, the assigning party shall promptly furnish
a copy of such assignment to the non-assigning party.
16. Protection of Interests. If Purchaser fails to pay any sum of money required under the terms of this Contract or fails to perform
any of the Purchaser’s obligations as set forth in this Contract, Seller may, at Seller’s option, pay the same or cause the same to be performed,
or both, and the amounts so paid by Seller and the cost of such performance shall be payable at once, with interest at the rate stated in
paragraph 4 of this Contract, as an additional amount due Seller under this Contract. If there now exists, or if Seller hereafter creates, suffers
or permits to accrue, any mortgage, contract for deed, lien or encumbrance against the Property which is not herein expressly assumed by
Purchaser, and provided Purchaser is not in default under this Contract, Seller shall timely pay all amounts due thereon, and if Seller fails to do
so, Purchaser may, at Purchaser’s option, pay any such delinquent amounts or take any actions reasonably necessary to cure defaults
thereunder and deduct the amounts so paid together with interest at the rate provided in this Contract from the payments next coming due
under this Contract.
17. Defaults and Remedies. The time of performance by Purchaser of the terms of this Contract is an essential part of this Contract.
If Purchaser fails to timely perform any term of this Contract, Seller may, at Seller’s option, elect to declare this Contract cancelled and
terminated by notice to Purchaser in accordance with applicable law or elect any other remedy available at law or in equity. If Seller elects to
terminate this Contract, all right, title, and interest acquired under this Contract by Purchaser shall then cease and terminate, and all
improvements made upon the Property and all payments made by Purchaser pursuant to this Contract (including escrow payments, if any)
shall belong to Seller as liquidated damages for breach of this Contract. Neither the extension of the time for payment of any sum of money to
be paid hereunder nor any waiver by Seller of Seller’s rights to declare this Contract forfeited by reason of any breach shall in any manner
affect Seller’s right to cancel this Contract because of defaults subsequently occurring, and no extension of time shall be valid unless agreed to
in writing. After service of notice of default and failure to cure such default within the period allowed by law, Purchaser shall, upon demand,
surrender possession of the Property to Seller, but Purchaser shall be entitled to possession of the Property until the expiration of such period.
Failure by Seller to exercise one or more remedies available under this paragraph 17 shall not constitute a waiver of the right to exercise such
remedy or remedies thereafter.
18. Binding Effect. The terms of this Contract shall run with the land and bind the parties hereto and the successors in interest.
19. Headings. Headings of the paragraphs of this Contract are for convenience only and do not define, limit, or construe the
contents of such paragraphs.
