English term or phrase: Waiver/waive
Hola a todos,

Ya sé que "waiver" tiene el sentido de "renuncia", "exoneración" o similar, pero en el párrafo que copio a continuación no veo claro que sea así.

Section 2.1. Waiver

Subject to the terms hereof the Lender hereby waives the Borrower's non-payment of the principal amount of the Loan outstanding on the Stated Maturity Date (as defined in the Credit Agreement as amended as of June 21, 2013), which shall be payable on the Stated Maturity Date as defined herein (or such earlier Maturity Date as it may become due under the Credit Agreement), and any default interest or other amount payable in respect thereof in accordance with Section 2.3(b) of the Credit Agreement.

¿Alguien puede decirme a qué se renuncia concretamente, si es que se renuncia a algo?

Gracias a todos por adelantado

waives the Borrower\'s non-payment of the principal amount of the Loan outstanding -

Me da la impresión, a menos que el resto de contexto diga algo que lo cuestione, que se trata perdonar el pago del capital (principal) de préstamo pendiente.

Y sin leerlo con tanto detenimiento, creo que el resto del párrafo mencionar que pagará los intereses y otras deudas aplicables (any default interest or other amount payable)

Example sentence(s):
  • ... renuncia al pago del capital por parte del prestatario, del préstamo pendiente

Dentro de los sinónimos que te han ofrecido, "eximir" es el mejor grupo de afinidad para este caso en particular.
El diccionario de María Moliner define "exención" de la sig. manera: Acción y efecto de *eximir[se]. 5 Especialmente, *privilegio que alguien goza por el que puede dejar de cumplir cierta obligación o de pagar cierta cosa: ‘Exención de impuestos’.

  • I was a CSR for Chase Home Lending a couple of years ago.

Reference information:
I think it has something to do with this:

No matter the protective measures taken, it is a simple market fact that borrowers sometimes default on loan terms or payments. There is little a lender can do to prevent such defaults, but some steps can be taken to remedy the situation. One of the simplest and most important things a lender can do after a default is provide notice of that fact and negotiate a workable solution to the problem.
The enclosed document allows the lender to waive a borrower’s default, and continue the lending relationship as if that default had not happened, and contains everything you’ll need to waive that default. A written contract minimizes confusion, misunderstanding, and error, and sets forth the parties’ expectations and fulfillment obligations. If obligations can’t be completed in a timely fashion, or if the parties want to continue a thriving and successful arrangement, a waiver can help the parties achieve their goals
