No single obligor represents 10% or more of the pool assets held by the issuing
entity.



Item 1114(b)(2) of Regulation AB, Significant Enhancement Provider Financial
Information.

Financial Security Assurance Inc provides a financial guaranty insurance policy
for the benefit of the Class A-3 and Class A-5 Certificates as disclosed in the
424 Prospectus.  No additional disclosure is necessary because such entity does
not provide payments representing 10% or more of the cashflows to the security.



Item 1115(b) of Regulation AB, Certain Derivatives Instruments (Financial
Information).

The Bank of New York provides an interest rate swap agreement, a cap contract
and a corridor contract for the Class A and Class M Certificates as disclosed in
the 424 Prospectus.  No additional disclosure is necessary because the
significance percentage for the interest rate swap agreement, the cap contract
and the corridor contract are all less than 10%.



Item 1117 of Regulation AB, Legal Proceedings.

     As disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K (File No. 333-140476-02)
     filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on August 10,
     2007, American Home Mortgage Investment Corp. and certain of its
     subsidiaries, including American Home Mortgage Holdings, Inc., American
     Home Mortgage Acceptance, Inc., American Home Mortgage Corp., and
     American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc. ("AHM Servicing"), filed a
     voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
     Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the
     "Bankruptcy Court") on August 6, 2007 (American Home Mortgage Holdings,
     Inc., a Delaware corporation, et al., Case No. 07-11047 (CSS)). The
     American Home Mortgage debtors will continue to operate their businesses
     as "debtors-in-possession" under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Bankruptcy
     Court and in accordance with applicable provisions of the U.S.
     Bankruptcy Code.

     With respect to American Home Mortgage's servicing business, on
     September 25, 2007, AH Mortgage Acquisition Co., Inc., an affiliate of
     WL Ross & Co. LLC, entered into an agreement to acquire substantially
     all of the servicing assets of AHM Servicing. By Order dated October 30,
     2007, the Bankruptcy Court approved and authorized that sale. The
     financial closing of the acquisition occurred on November 15, 2007, and
     it is anticipated that the legal closing of the acquisition will occur
     during the second quarter of 2008. After the legal closing, the new
     servicing company will conduct business as AH Mortgage Acquisition Co.,
     Inc., doing business as American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc.



Item 1119 of Regulation AB, Affiliations and Certain Relationships and Related
Transactions.

The information regarding this Item has been previously filed in a 424(b)(5)
filing dated June 1, 2007 and as amended on June 15, 2007.



Item 1122 of Regulation AB, Compliance with Applicable Servicing Criteria.

The reports on assessment of compliance with the servicing criteria for
asset-backed securities and the related attestation reports on such assessments
of compliance are attached hereto under Item 15.

The assessment of compliance for American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc.
disclosed the following material noncompliance with servicing criteria
1122(d)(2)(i) and 1122(d)(4)(iii), as applicable during the twelve months
ended December 31, 2007:

* With respect to servicing criterion 1122(d)(2)(i), certain obligor
  remittances were not deposited into the appropriate custodial bank accounts
  within two business days of receipt as required by the related transaction
  agreements. Payments on pool assets were not deposited into the appropriate
  custodial bank accounts within two business days of receipt as specified in
  the transaction documents for various securitizations serviced by American
  Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc. as a result of a unilateral bank decision by
  JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., the depository bank, to require a fully funded
  daily payment clearing bank account (called a "prefund status") between
  August 1, 2007 and December 20, 2007. This requirement added one day of delay
  to the funds transfer process during that period. American Home Mortgage
  Servicing, Inc. believes it is in compliance with the requirements of
  servicing criterion 1122(d)(2)(i) as of December 20, 2007.

* With respect to servicing criterion 1122(d)(4)(iii), certain removals from
  the asset pool were not made within the timeframe required by the related
  transaction agreements. For one of the 75 securitizations American Home
  Mortgage Servicing, Inc. serviced during 2007, the pooling and servicing
  agreement restricted American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc.'s ability to
  comply with that document while acting in the best interests of the trust. In
  particular, the pooling and servicing agreement for the transaction provided
  that American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc. was required to charge-off any
  loans in the trust that were delinquent for 180 days, but did not provide for
  the simultaneous transfer of such loans to the depositor (or its designee).
  In January 2008, the pooling and servicing agreement for the transaction was
  amended to provide for such simultaneous transfer.



Item 1123 of Regulation AB, Servicer Compliance Statement.

The servicer compliance statements are attached hereto under Item 15.
