In the event of a default payment of any assessment and in addition to any other remedies herein or by law provided, the Association may enforce each such obligation as follows:

(a) By suit or suits at law to enforce each such assessment obligation. Any request for judgment in any such action shall include a sum for expended attorney’s fees and related costs.

(b) At any time after the delinquency of any assessment (including regular, special or other as specified in Sections 3 and 4 herein), the Association may give notice to the defaulting Owner, which said notice shall state the date of the delinquency, the amount of the delinquency, the late fee and the interest charge for such delinquency, and make a demand for payment thereof. If such delinquency, late fee and interest is not paid within thirty (30) days after delivery of such notice, the Association may elect to file a claim of lien against the Lot of such delinquent Owner. Such claim of lien shall state (1) the name of the delinquent Owner or reputed Owner, (2) a description of the Lot against which claim of lien is made, (3) the amount claimed to be due and owing (with any proper off-set allowed), (4) that the claim of lien is made by the Association pursuant to the terms of these restrictions (giving the date of execution and the date, book and page reference of the recording hereof in the Office of the Recorder of the County of San Bernardino), and (5) that a lien is claimed against said described Lot in an amount equal to the amount of the stated delinquency plus interest and late fees as applicable. Any such claim of lien shall be signed and acknowledged by an authorized officer of the Association. Upon recordation of a claim of lien by the County Recorder, the lien claimed herein shall immediately attach and become effective as a continuing’ lien covering all subsequent delinquencies and attendant penalties. Any such lien may be foreclosed by the Association, its attorney, or any other person authorized by the Association, either by appropriate action in court or in the manner provided by law for the foreclosure of a mortgage under power of sale. Upon sale, a certificate of sale shall be executed and acknowledged by an authorized officer of the Association or by the person conducting the sale. A deed upon foreclosure shall be executed in like manner.

The Association may bring an action at law against the Owner personally obligated to pay the assessment, or foreclose the lien or pursue both remedies without waiving the right to either remedy until the assessment, including all of the charges, have been fully paid and satisfied. The Association shall have the power to bid for the Lot at the sale under its power of sale or at any court foreclosure sale and to acquire and hold, lease, mortgage and convey the same.

Section 1 ages, The lien of the assessments provided for herein, Subordination of the Lien to Mortgage shall be subordinate to the lien of any first mortgage. A sale or transfer of any Lot to the

mortgage beneficiary shall not affect the assessment lien. However, the transfer of any Lot pursuant to a senior mortgage foreclosure shall extinguish the lien of such assessments as to payments which became due prior to such sale or transfer. No sale or transfer shall relieve such Lot from liability for any assessments thereafter becoming due as from the lien thereof. Notwithstanding anything herein to the extent California law addresses the lien priority issue, California law shall prevail.

Section 12- Exempt Property, All Common Area and properties dedicated to, and accepted by, a local public authority shall be exempt from the assessments created herein, except no land or improvements devoted to dwelling use shall be exempt.

Section 4. Indemnification of Officers, Board Members, Committee Members and Other Volunteers. No member of the Board or any committee of the Association, nor any officer of the Association, if any, shall be personally liable to any Owner, or to any other party, including the Association, for any damage, loss or prejudice suffered or claimed on account of any act, omission, error or negligence of the Association, the Board, or any other representative of the Association, provided that such person has, upon the basis of such information as may be possessed by him, acted in good faith, within his or her capacity as a Board member, and without willful or intentional misconduct or malice. The Association shall indemnify such person or entity for all reasonable costs, including attorney’s fees, incurred in the defense of such action, including any settlement thereof when such action did not arise out of the willful misconduct of such person.

Each Owner does further, by acceptance of his/her deed, agree for himself/herself and for the members of his/her family, his/her contract purchasers, lessees, renters, guests or invitees, to indemnify each and every other Owner, and to hold him or her harmless from, ns for personal injury or property and to defend him or her against, any claim of any person or persons damage occurring within or on the Lot of that particular Owner and any exclusive easements over the Common Area appurtenant thereto, if any, unless said injury or damage occurred by reason of the negligence of any other Owner or person temporarily visiting in said Lot or portion of the Common Area subject to an exclusive easement appurtenant thereto, if any. In the case of a Lot owned by more than one person or entity, liability of such Owners shall be joint and several.

Such address may be changed from time to time by notice in writing to the Association.

Section 7. Oblation-for Taxes, To the extent allowed by local law, all Lots shall be separately assessed and taxed so that all taxes, assessments and charges which may become liens prior to first mortgages under local law shall relate only to the individual Lots and not to the Project as a whole. Each Owner shall be obligated to pay any taxes or assessments assessed by the County Assessor of said County against his or her Lot and against his or her personal property.

Section 8. Liens on Properties, If any Owner shall permit any lien to be filed on any part of said Project for labor and/or materials furnished at the request of such Owner, such Owner shall, upon written demand by the Board, cause the same to be promptly removed, and if he/she fails to do so, the Board or the Manager, shall have the option but not the obligation, to take such action as may be necessary to remove same. In such event, all costs and expenses incurred, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, shall be a debt of such Owner, and shall be specially assessed against him/her by the Board. The provisions of Article IV hereof, relative to the enforcement of a lien for unpaid maintenance charges, shall be applicable for the enforcement of such lien.

Section 9. Arbitration- If any dispute arises under the provisions of this Article, alternative dispute resolution shall be considered first. The parties may agree to mediation and/or arbitration by a process with an appointed arbitrator, except as otherwise specifically set forth herein.
