If the secured lender did not act pursuant to such an order, those costs relating to a reasonable cleaning up, remedying or other responsive action concerning hazardous substances, performed in good faith, which is anticipated by the environmental provision;


All liabilities of the secured lender to any third party relating to the breach, unless the secured lender had actual knowledge of the environmental condition which is the basis of the claim for indemnification before entering into the transaction in which the environmental provision was given; and
