Loan and Mortgage Terms Glossary

Exculpatory Clause:

That part of a written agreement that relieves one party to the agreement of liability as a result of actions (or lack of actions) performed in the course of executing the terms of the contract. In a trust agreement, an exculpatory clause relieves the trustee of liability resulting from any act performed in good faith under the trust agreement. In a lease, the exculpatory clause relieves the landlord of liability for personal injury to tenants or damage to tenants' property.
