        events are concerned, at any time in the period ending on the 91st day
        after the date of deposit;
 
          (5) such Legal Defeasance or Covenant Defeasance will not result in a
     breach or violation of, or constitute a default under any material
     agreement or instrument, other than the indentures, to which Charter
     Holdings or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries is a party or by which
     Charter Holdings or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries is bound;
 
          (6) Charter Holdings must have delivered to the trustee an opinion of
     counsel to the effect that after the 91st day assuming no intervening
     bankruptcy, that no holder is an insider of Charter Holdings following the
     deposit and that such deposit would not be deemed by a court of competent
     jurisdiction a transfer for the benefit of either issuer in its capacity as
     such, the trust funds will not be subject to the effect of any applicable
     bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or similar laws affecting creditors'
     rights generally;
 
          (7) Charter Holdings must deliver to the trustee an officers'
     certificate stating that the deposit was not made by Charter Holdings with
     the intent of preferring the holders of notes over the other creditors of
     Charter Holdings with the intent of defeating, hindering, delaying or
     defrauding creditors of Charter Holdings or others; and
 
          (8) Charter Holdings must deliver to the trustee an officers'
     certificate and an opinion of counsel, each stating that all conditions
     precedent relating to the Legal Defeasance or the Covenant Defeasance have
     been complied with.
 
     Notwithstanding the foregoing, the opinion of counsel required by clause
(2) above with respect to a Legal Defeasance need not be delivered if all notes
not theretofore delivered to the trustee for cancellation
 
     (a) have become due and payable or
 
     (b) will become due and payable on the maturity date within one year under
arrangements satisfactory to the trustee for the giving of notice of redemption
by the trustee in the name, and at the expense, of the issuers.
