Purpose of the Portals. The purpose of the Portals is to facilitate NorthMarq’s commercial mortgage loan servicing, and is intended to be used by borrowers, lenders, and NorthMarq employees. Authorized Users can use the Portals to securely view loan data and documents, upload documents, modify user profile information, and communicate with NorthMarq.
Registration.Borrowers must assign Administrators to manage credential access for their organizations. Administrators will identify their organizations’ Authorized Users, facilitate registration, and inform NorthMarq when credentials need to be modified or terminated. Lenders will work with the NorthMarq servicing team to obtain account access for Lender’s Authorized Users. If you have been directed to become an Authorized User of a Portal, you will need to accept these Terms. You will have a unique user name and you will be required to set a complex password. Each user name can be used by only one individual, and you certify that you will not share log in credentials, even within your organization. If you ever suspect that your credentials have been compromised, let us know immediately and change your password. If you are an individual accessing the Portals as agent or employee for an entity, you will cancel your account and cease accessing the Portals when you cease to be an agent or employee.

Borrowers (including Authorized Users who are agents acting on a borrower’s behalf) can use the Client Portal to view loan information, upload information so that it is available to lenders and NorthMarq, manage account information, and communicate with NorthMarq in its capacity as a servicer. Each borrower will identify one or more Administrators who will be responsible for granting Authorized Users—other than NorthMarq employees—with access to information about specific loans or loan portfolios. Borrower represents and warrants that NorthMarq can rely on the actions of the borrower’s Administrators, and has no responsibility to separately confirm that such access is appropriate.
