  12. This Master Deed may be amended by an instrument in writing signed by at least 66-2/3% in common interest of all Unit Owners, cast in person or by proxy at a meeting duly held in accordance with the provisions of the By-Laws, evidenced in either case by recording a certificate to such effect, signed by a majority of the Board of Managers, with Barnstable Deeds, provided, however, that, without the consent of any Unit Owner, or any mortgagee, the Sponsor, or its assigns or its successor in title to all or any portion of Phase IV shown on the plan referred to in Article 1 hereof, may, at any time, unilaterally amend this Master Deed so as to submit to the provisions of Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 183A all or any combination of the Units described in the attached Schedule A which are hereafter constructed on the Property as shown on the plan referred to in Articles 1 and 2 hereof. Any such Unit may be added in any sequence and at any location in Sponsor's sole, discretion and nothing contained herein shall constitute a warranty or representation obligating the Sponsor to construct or dedicate additional buildings or Units. Any such amendment shall contain with respect to any such additions, all of the particulars required by said Chapter 183A. All Unit Owners, Unit Mortgagees and their heirs, administrators, successors, assigns and legal representatives, by their acceptance of a Unit Deed or mortgage subject to the provisions hereof, DO HEREBY assent to such amendments and grant to Sponsor and its successors and assigns an irrevocable power of attorney, coupled with an interest, to execute, seal, deliver and record on their behalf any and all such amendments.

  13. No Severability. No Unit Owner may or shall execute Or make any deed, mortgage or other conveyance of his Unit without including in such conveyance the Appurtenant Interests (specifically including without limitation any beach rights and rights in recreational facilities which may arise as a result of membership in the Association of Unit Owners), it being the intention hereof that there be no severance of Unit Ownership from Appurtenant Interests and no retention of beach rights or interests except as the same may devolve from then current Unit Ownership and Membership in the Association of Unit Owners.

  14. Invalidity. The invalidity of any provision of this Master Deed shall not be deemed to impair or affect in any manner the validity, enforceability or effect of the remainder of this Master Deed and, in such event, all of the other provisions of this Master Deed shall continue in full force and effect as if such invalid provision had never been included herein.

  15. Waiver. No provision contained in this Master Deed shall be deemed to have been abrogated or waived by reason of any failure to enforce the same, irrespective of the number of violations or breaches which may occur.

  16. Captions. The captions herein are inserted only as a matter of convenience and for reference, and in no way define, limit or describe the scope of this Master Deed nor the intent of any provision hereof.

With respect to the Units to be added the Condominium by amendment, the following optional Construction Items may be added to any of them.

Such option will not materially affect the structure or configuration of any such Unit, but each will increase the Fair Value Ratio Index of such Unit as follows:

Option Option Index
Garage (included at no
increase in index for Bluff)
.035
Full basement .035

Such increase of the Fair Value Ratio Index will be indicated in the Amended Master Deed filed at the time such Unit is added to the Condominium.

Any of the above Unit models, described in detail on the Plans recorded with this Master Deed, can be placed at any of the approximate locations shown on the Site Plan also filed herewith.

Explanatory Note
As Units are added by Sponsor, the fair value ratio index of each Unit may be determined by multiplying the Unit Model Index of the Unit by the location factor attributable to it and then adding the option index for any applicable option. For example, a Ranch Cape in the "Knoll" with full basement would have a fair value ratio index of Unit Model Index (1.000) X Location Factor (.55) + Option Index (.035) = .585. A table of Unit Mode indices, location factors and option indices for all possible subsequent Units of the Condominium is set forth on the this page. The proportionate interests of all Units may then be calculated by dividing the fair value ratio index of each such Unit by the Sum of the fair value ratio indices of all Units which will then have been built and added to the Condominium by Sponsor.
