                  9.1 Provided no Event of Default exists under this Mortgage,
         Mortgagor shall release portions of the Property from the lien and
         encumbrance of this Mortgage upon payment to Mortgagee of a release
         price ("RELEASE PRICE") for those portions of the Property requested to

         balance of the Note or (2) the greater of (a) 65% of the net sales
         proceeds of the parcel being released, or (b) the minimum release price
         shown on SCHEDULE C attached hereto and incorporated hereto and
         incorporated herein, which Release Price will be applied to the
         outstanding principal balance of the Note. For purposes of this

         (x) less 3% closing costs and (y) less commissions paid by the Borrower
         and (2) less the outstanding Community Development District (CDD) bonds

         minimum release prices for the remaining collateral equals 125% of the
         funding available under the loan, and to the extent that any adjustment
         in the minimum release prices of the remaining collateral is required,
         it will be done prorata based upon the original values of the minimum
         release price for the remaining collateral set forth in SCHEDULE C
         hereto.

                  9.3 Mortgagee's counsel shall prepare the form of Partial
