The Lender may seek reconsideration of this Order by filing a written motion on or before 14 days after entry of the Order. If a timely motion for reconsideration is filed, the Court will promptly schedule a hearing in accordance with Local Rule 9073-1. In the event a motion for reconsideration is timely filed, all deadlines set forth in this Order shall be suspended pending resolution of the motion, but all other provisions shall remain in effect. 2. The Debtor and Lender are required to participate in Mortgage Modification Mediation ("MMM") in good faith. MMM shall be concluded not later than 150 days from the date of the Order, unless extended by written consent on the approved Mortgage Modification Mediation Portal ("MMM Portal"), by stipulation of the parties or by court order. 3. All communications and information exchanged during MMM are privileged and confidential as provided by Federal Rule of Evidence 408 and Chapter 44 of the Florida Statutes, and shall be inadmissible in any subsequent proceeding. 4. All written communication between the parties regarding the mediation must be sent through the approved portal ("MMM Portal") only, unless otherwise ordered by the Court. Any litigated matters incidental to the mediation shall be considered as separate matters and not subject to the portal communication requirement. 5. The Lender (and Lender's counsel, if any) shall register with the MMM Portal, unless already registered, within seven days after entry of this Page 2 of 9 MMM-LF-02 (rev. 04/01/15) American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com Order, and designate its single point of contact and outside legal counsel, if any. If the Lender fails to register, the Debtor may file a motion with the Court seeking sanctions against the Lender for Lender's failure to register. 6. Lender's counsel or representative shall have the authority (within the investor's guidelines) to settle and will attend and continuously participate in all MMM conferences in this case. 7. Debtor's attorney shall, within seven days after the filing of Debtor's Notice of Selection of Mortgage Modification Mediator (or Notice of Clerk's Designation of Mortgage Modification Mediator), or after confirming that the Lender is registered on the MMM Portal, whichever occurs later, remit to the MMM Portal the required non-refundable MMM Portal submission fee in the amount $40.00, and upload to the MMM Portal the following (collectively, the "Completed Package"): (a) Debtor's loan modification package (prepared using the Document Preparation Software); (b) (c) a copy of this Order; and any additional lender-specific information identified by Lender on the MMM Portal. 8. The Lender shall, within seven days after Debtor's delivery of the "Completed Package", acknowledge receipt of Debtor's information and advise Debtor of any additional or missing information required for Lender to proceed with its review. 9. In the event the Lender requires additional or missing information to consider the Debtor's requested mortgage modification options as Page 3 of 9 MMM-LF-02 (rev. 04/01/15) American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com specified in the Ex Parte Motion, the Lender shall so notify Debtor through the MMM Portal within seven days of Debtor's submission ("Notice"). The Debtor shall provide all additional documents through the MMM Portal within seven days of the Notice. 10. 11. The Lender shall timely underwrite the loan modification request. If the Lender transfers the loan, the Lender must provide a copy of the Order to the new holder of the loan ("Successor Lender"), and the Successor Lender will be obligated to comply with all terms of this Order. 12. PROCESS FOR SELECTION OF MEDIATOR: (a) The parties shall have 14 days from the date of this Order to select a mediator. If the parties agree on the selection of a mediator, the Debtor shall file the MMM Local Form "Debtor's Notice of Selection of Mortgage Modification Mediator" (Check Box 1 and insert mediator name and contact information), serve a copy of the notice on all required parties, and file a Certificate of Service pursuant to Local Rule 2002-1(F). (b) If the Lender fails to communicate with the Debtor within the 14 day period established for the mediator selection process, the Debtor shall, within seven days, independently select a mediator and file the "Debtor's Notice of Selection of Mortgage Modification Mediator" (Check Box 2 and insert mediator name and contact information), serve a copy of the notice on all required parties, and file a Certificate of Service pursuant to Local Rule 2002-1(F). In this Page 4 of 9 MMM-LF-02 (rev. 04/01/15) American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com instance, it shall be deemed that the Lender has waived the right to challenge Debtor's selection of a mediator.

The clerk shall then randomly select a mediator from the clerk's Mediation Register pursuant to Local Rule 9019-2(B)(3), without the necessity of a hearing. The clerk shall serve notice of the mediator selection on the required parties using the MMM Local Form "Notice of Clerk's Designation of Mortgage Modification Mediator". Local Rule 9019-2(B) shall apply to any challenge to the clerk's designation of mediator. 13. Debtor's attorney shall assign the mediator as the mediator in this case on the MMM Portal within seven days
