9.2 Tenant shall not install any equipment that can exceed the capacity of any utility facilities and if any equipment installed by Tenant requires additional utility facilities, the same shall be installed at Tenant’s expense in compliance with all code requirements and plans and specifications and must be approved in writing by Landlord.
9.3 Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any loss or damage caused by or resulting from any variation, interruption or failure of said services unless caused by the negligent or wrongful act or omission of Landlord; and no temporary interruption or failure of such services for any reason shall be deemed a breach or default of this Lease, an eviction of Tenant, or relieve Tenant from any of Tenant’s obligations hereunder including Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent.
10.1 Tenant’s Insurance Obligations. Tenant, at all times during the Lease Term and during any early occupancy period, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, will maintain the following insurance:
10.1.1 Liability Insurance. Tenant shall, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, obtain and keep in force during the Lease Term a policy of commercial general liability insurance, including blanket contractual liability insurance, covering Tenant’s use of the Premises, with such coverages and limits of liability as Landlord may reasonably require, but not less than a $1,000,000 combined single limit with a $2,000,000 general aggregate limit (which general aggregate limit may be satisfied by an umbrella liability policy) for bodily injury or property damage; however, such limits shall not limit Tenant’s liability hereunder. The policy shall name Landlord and any other associated or affiliated entity as their interests may appear and at Landlord’s request, any mortgagee(s), as additional insureds, shall be written on an “occurrence” basis and not on a “claims made” basis and shall be endorsed to provide that it is primary to and not contributory to any policies carried by Landlord, as required by written contract, and to provide that it shall not be cancelable or reduced without at least thirty (30) days prior notice to Landlord with ten (10) days’ notice for non-payment of premium. The insurer shall be authorized to issue such insurance, licensed to do business and admitted in the state in which the Premises is located and rated at least “A” in the most current edition of Best’s Insurance Reports. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord on or before the Commencement Date or any earlier date on which Tenant accesses the Premises, and at least ten (10) days prior to the date of each policy renewal, a certificate of insurance evidencing such coverage.
10.1.2 Property Insurance. Tenant shall obtain and maintain insurance coverage for on all of Tenant’s personal property, trade fixtures, , inventory, goods, personal property (including also property under the care, custody or control of Tenant) and business interests which may be located in, upon or about the Premises, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, for the benefit of Tenant against loss or damage by fire and such other risk or risks of a similar or dissimilar nature as are now, or may in the future be, customarily covered with respect to a tenant’s machinery, equipment, furniture, fixtures, inventory, goods, personal property and business located in a building similar in construction, general location, use, occupancy and design to the Premises, including, but without limiting the generality of the foregoing, windstorms, hail, explosions, vandalism, , malicious mischief, civil commotion and such other coverage as Tenant may deem appropriate or necessary.
10.1.3 Worker’s Compensation. Tenant shall obtain and maintain during the Lease Term workers’ compensation insurance as is required by the laws of the state in which the Premises is located.
10.1.4 Intentionally Deleted.
10.1.5 Additional Insurance. Any other form or forms of insurance as Landlord or Landlord’s mortgagees may reasonably require from time-to-time, in form and amounts, and for insurance risks against which a prudent tenant of a comparable size and in a comparable business would protect itself.
10.2 Landlord’s Insurance Obligations. Landlord will at all times during the Lease Term maintain the following insurance:
10.2.1 Property Insurance. Property insurance on the Premises in an amount not less than the full insurable replacement cost of the Premises insuring against loss or damage by fire and other casualty. Landlord may maintain such insurance in whole or in part under blanket policies. Such insurance will not cover or be applicable to any personal property or trade fixtures of Tenant within the Premises or otherwise located on the Premises.
10.2.2 Payment of Premiums. The cost of the premiums for the insurance policies maintained by Landlord shall be paid by Tenant as equal monthly payments as part of the Operating Cost. Premiums for policy periods commencing before, and ending after, the Lease Term shall be prorated.
10.3 Tenant’s Failure to Insure. Notwithstanding any contrary language in this Lease and any notice and cure rights this Lease provides Tenant, if Tenant fails to obtain and maintain the insurance required under this Lease, Landlord may, but is not obligated to, after giving Tenant a three (3) business day cure right to so obtain same, obtain such insurance for Landlord’s benefit. In such event, Tenant will pay to Landlord, all costs and expenses Landlord incurs obtaining such insurance. Landlord’s exercise of its rights under this Section 10.3 does not relieve Tenant from any default under this Lease.
10.4 No Limitation. Landlord’s establishment of minimum insurance requirements is not a representation by Landlord that such limits are sufficient and does not limit Tenant’s liability under this Lease in any manner.
10.5 Waiver of Subrogation. To the extent that the parties may legally so agree, neither Landlord nor Tenant shall be liable by way of subrogation or otherwise to the other party, or to any insurance company insuring the other party for any loss or damage to any of the property of Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, which loss or damage is covered by any insurance policies carried by the parties and in force at the time of any such damage, even though such loss or damage might have been occasioned by the negligence of Landlord or Tenant, and the party hereto sustaining such loss or damage so protected by insurance waives its rights, if any, of recovery against the other party hereto to the extent and amount that such loss is covered by such insurance. This release shall be in effect only so long as the applicable insurance policies do not contain a clause or endorsement that causes the aforementioned waiver to reduce the right of the insured to recover under such policies.
10.6 Indemnity. Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold Landlord harmless from all Claims arising from (a) Tenant’s use of the Premises during the Lease Term or the conduct of its business or any activity, work, or thing done, permitted or suffered by Tenant in or about the Premises during the Lease Term, except to the extent (if any) such claim arises from the negligence or intentional misconduct of Landlord, its agents, employees, guests or invitees, (b) any breach or default in the performance of any obligation to be performed by Tenant under the terms of this Lease, (c) any act, neglect, fault or omission of Tenant or of its agents or employees, guests or invitees during the Lease Term, and (d) all reasonable costs, attorneys’ fees, expenses and liabilities incurred by Landlord relating to or resulting from such Claims or any action or proceeding brought thereon, except to the extent arising from the act, omission or negligence of Landlord, its agents, employees, guests or invitees.
DEFAULT AND REMEDIES
11.1 Event of Default. The occurrence of any of the following constitutes an “Event of Default” by Tenant under this Lease:
11.1.1 Failure to Pay Rent. Tenant fails to pay Rent as and when due.
11.1.2 Failure to Pay Other Amounts. Tenant fails to make any payment of any other sum or charge payable under this Lease, other than Rent, or any part thereof when and as the same shall become due and payable and such default continues for a period of ten (10) days after receipt by Tenant of notice from Landlord specifying the default.
11.1.3 Failure to Perform. Tenant breaches or fails to perform any of Tenant’s nonmonetary obligations under this Lease and the breach or failure continues for a period of thirty (30) days after Landlord notifies Tenant of Tenant’s breach or failure; provided that if Tenant cannot reasonably cure its breach or failure within a 30-day period, Tenant’s breach or failure is not an Event of Default if Tenant commences to cure its breach or failure within the 30 day period and thereafter diligently pursues the cure and effects the cure within a period of time that does not exceed ninety (90) days after the expiration of the 30-day period. If Tenant has been given notice of the same or a substantially similar violation or failure on two (2) or more other occasions within the twelve (12) month period preceding the most recent violation or failure, regardless whether such earlier violations or failures were cured within the allowed cure period, then the current violation shall be an Event of Default without any further notice or cure period being afforded.
11.1.4 Guaranty Default. Guarantor’s default under any guaranty now or after the Effective Date securing all or any part of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease.
11.1.5 Other Defaults. Tenant makes a general assignment or general arrangement for the benefit of creditors; (b) a petition for adjudication of bankruptcy or for reorganization or rearrangement is filed by Tenant; (c) a petition for adjudication of bankruptcy or for reorganization or rearrangement is filed against Tenant and is not dismissed within sixty (60) days; (d) a trustee or receiver is appointed to take possession of substantially all of Tenant’s assets located at the Premises or of Tenant’s interest in this Lease and possession is not restored to Tenant within thirty (30) days; or (e) substantially all of Tenant’s assets, substantially all of Tenant’s assets located at the Premises or Tenant’s interest in this Lease is subjected to attachment, execution or other judicial seizure not discharged within thirty (30) days. If a court of competent jurisdiction determines that any act described in this Section 11.1.5 does not constitute an Event of Default, and the court appoints a trustee to take possession of the Premises (or if Tenant remains a debtor in possession of the Premises) and such trustee or Tenant Transfers Tenant’s interest hereunder, then Landlord is entitled to receive, as Additional Rent, the amount by which the Rent (or any other consideration) paid in connection with the Transfer exceeds the Rent otherwise payable by Tenant under this Lease.
11.2 Remedies. In the event of any Event of Default, Landlord may, at its option, exercise any and all of the remedies listed below. No such remedy herein or otherwise conferred upon or reserved to Landlord shall be considered exclusive of any other remedy (except where inconsistent), but the same shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other remedy given hereunder or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity, and every power and remedy given by the Lease to Landlord may be exercised from time to time and as often as the occasion may rise or may be deemed expedient
11.2.1 Landlord may, without terminating this Lease, enter upon the Premises, without being liable for prosecution or any claim for damages therefor, and do whatever Tenant is obligated to do under the terms of this Lease, in which event Tenant shall reimburse Landlord on demand for any expenses which Landlord may incur in complying with Tenant’s obligation under this Lease and Landlord shall not be liable for any damages resulting to Tenant from such action, unless caused by the negligence or intentional misconduct of Landlord.
11.2.2 Landlord may, if it elects to do so, bring suit for the collection of rents and/or any damages resulting from Tenant’s default without entering into possession of the Premises or terminating this Lease.
11.2.3 Terminate Tenant’s right to possess the Premises by any lawful means with or without terminating this Lease, in which event Tenant will immediately surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord. Unless Landlord specifically states that it is terminating this Lease, Landlord’s termination of Tenant’s right to possess the Premises is not to be construed as an election by Landlord to terminate this Lease or Tenant’s obligations and liabilities under this Lease. In such event, this Lease continues in full force and effect (except for Tenant’s right to possess the Premises) and Tenant continues to be obligated for and must pay all Rent as and when due under this Lease. If Landlord terminates Tenant’s right to possess the Premises, Landlord is not obligated to but may re- enter the Premises and remove all persons and property from the Premises. Landlord may store any property Landlord removes from the Premises in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost and for the account of Tenant. Upon such re-entry, Landlord is not obligated to but may relet all or any part of the Premises to a third party or parties for Tenant’s account. Tenant is immediately liable to Landlord for all Re-entry Costs and must pay Landlord the same within five (5) days after Landlord’s notice to Tenant. Landlord may relet the Premises for a period shorter or longer than the remaining Term. If Landlord relets all or any part of the Premises, Tenant will continue to pay Rent when due under this Lease and Landlord will refund to Tenant the Net Rent Landlord actually receives from the reletting up to a maximum amount equal to the Rent Tenant paid that came due after Landlord’s reletting. If the Net Rent Landlord actually receives from reletting exceeds such Rent, Landlord will apply the excess sum to future Rent due under this Lease. Landlord may retain any surplus Net Rent remaining at the expiration of the Term.
For purposes of this Section 11.2:
|●||“Re-entry Costs” means all reasonable costs and expenses Landlord incurs re-entering or reletting all or any part of the Premises, including, without limitation, all costs and expenses Landlord incurs (a) maintaining or preserving the Premises after an Event of Default; (b) recovering possession of the Premises, removing persons and property from the Premises (including, without limitation, court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) and storing such property; (c) reletting, renovating, restoring or altering the Premises; and (d) real estate commissions, advertising expenses, legal fees and similar expenses paid or payable in connection with reletting all or any part of the Premises. “Re-entry Costs” also includes the value of free rent and other concessions Landlord gives in connection with re-entering or reletting all or any part of the Premises.|
|●||“Net Rent” means all rental Landlord actually receives from any reletting of all or any part of the Premises, less any indebtedness from Tenant to Landlord other than Rent (which indebtedness is paid first to Landlord) and less the Re- entry Costs (which costs are paid second to Landlord)|
11.2.4 Landlord may terminate this Lease after three (3) days’ written notice to Tenant and this Lease shall terminate on the date specified in such notice. Tenant shall quit and surrender the Premises by said date, failing which, Landlord may enter upon the Premises immediately or at any subsequent time without additional notice or demand (which additional notice or demand is hereby expressly waived by Tenant) without being liable for prosecution of any claim for damages therefor, and expel Tenant and those claiming under Tenant and remove their effects without being guilty of any manner of trespass. Tenant agrees that if Landlord shall cause Tenant’s goods or effects to be removed from the Premises pursuant to the terms hereof or of any court order, Landlord’s act of so removing such goods or effects shall be deemed to be the act of and for the account of Tenant. If this Lease is so terminated, Tenant shall be liable for and shall pay to Landlord the sum of all rental and other indebtedness accrued to date of such termination, plus, as damages, an amount equal to the present value of (1) the Base Rent for the remaining portion of the Term (had the Term not been terminated prior to the date of expiration stated in the Basic Lease Terms); plus (2) the unamortized balance of any reasonable rent abatements, brokers’ fees and commissions, attorneys’ fees and costs, and reimbursements, construction allowances and other costs incurred by Landlord to improve the Premises under this Lease, discounted at a per annum rate equal to the discounted rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco plus one percentage point; less (3) any rent actually received by Landlord in leasing the Premises at reasonable market rates. It is agreed by the parties that the actual damages which might be sustained by Landlord by reason of Tenant’s default hereunder are uncertain and difficult to ascertain, and that the foregoing measure of damages is fair and reasonable.
11.2.5 Tenant will reimburse and compensate Landlord on demand and as Additional Rent for any actual loss Landlord incurs in connection with, resulting from or related to an Event of Default, regardless whether suit is commenced or judgment is entered. Such loss includes all reasonable legal fees, costs and expenses (including paralegal fees and other professional fees and expenses) Landlord incurs investigating, negotiating, restoring, settling or enforcing any of Landlord’s rights or remedies or otherwise protecting Landlord’s interests under this Lease. In addition to the foregoing, Landlord is entitled to reimbursement of all of Landlord’s reasonable fees, expenses and damages, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and paralegal and other professional fees and expenses, Landlord incurs in connection with protecting its interests in any bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding involving Tenant, including, without limitation, any proceeding under any chapter of the Bankruptcy Code; by exercising and advocating rights under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code; by proposing a plan of reorganization and objecting to competing plans; and by filing motions for relief from stay. Such fees and expenses are payable on demand, or, in any event, upon assumption or rejection of this Lease in bankruptcy.
11.2.6 Tenant waives and releases all Claims Tenant may have resulting from Landlord’s re-entry and taking possession of the Premises by any lawful means and removing and storing Tenant’s property as permitted under this Lease, regardless whether this Lease is terminated, and, to the fullest extent allowable under applicable laws, Tenant releases and will indemnify, defend (with counsel reasonably acceptable to Landlord), protect and hold harmless the Landlord from and against any and all Claims occasioned by Landlord’s lawful re-entry of the Premises and disposition of Tenant’s property. No such reentry is to be considered or construed as a forcible entry by Landlord. Landlord will not be liable to hold or store Tenant’s property for more than thirty (30) days.
11.3 No Waiver. Except as specifically set forth in this Lease, no failure by Landlord or Tenant to insist upon the other party’s performance of any of the terms of this Lease or to exercise any right or remedy upon a breach thereof, constitutes a waiver of any such breach or of any breach or default by the other party in its performance of its obligations under this Lease. Except as specifically set forth in this Lease, none of the terms of this Lease to be kept, observed or performed by a party to this Lease, and no breach thereof, are waived, altered or modified except by a written instrument executed by the other party. One or more waivers by a party to this Lease is not to be construed as a waiver of a subsequent breach of the same covenant, term or condition.
DAMAGE AND DESTRUCTION
12.1 Notice of Casualty. If the Building shall be damaged or destroyed by any peril, including but not limited to, fire, wind storm or other casualty (each such occurrence, a “Casualty”), at any time, whether covered by insurance to be provided under this Lease, or not, Tenant shall give prompt notice thereof to Landlord and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect.
12.2 Tenantable Within 270 Days. Except as provided in Section 12.3, if fire or other casualty renders the whole or any material part of the Building untenantable and Landlord determines (in Landlord’s reasonable discretion) that it can make the Building tenantable within 270 days after the date of the casualty, then Landlord will notify Tenant that Landlord will within the 270 day period to repair and restore the Building to as near their condition prior to the casualty as is reasonably possible. Landlord will provide the notice within forty-five (45) days after the date of the casualty. In such case, this Lease remains in full force and effect, Rent for the period during which the Building is untenantable shall abate pro rata (based upon the untenantable portion of the Building as compared with the entirety of the Building).
12.3 Not Tenantable Within 270 Days. If fire or other casualty renders the whole or any material part of the Building untenantable and Landlord determines (in Landlord’s reasonable discretion) that it cannot make the improvements on the Premises tenantable within 270 days after the date of the casualty, then Landlord will so notify Tenant within forty-five (45) days after the date of the casualty and may, in such notice, terminate this Lease effective on the date of Landlord’s notice. If Landlord does not terminate this Lease as provided in this section, Tenant may terminate this Lease by notifying Landlord within thirty (30) days after the date of Landlord’s notice, which termination will be effective thirty (30) days after the date of Tenant’s notice.
12.4 Termination. In the event that all or a substantial part of the Building is rendered unusable in the last one (1) year of the Lease Term, or if the restoration of the Building to its prior use and character is reasonably estimated to take more than 270 days, then Tenant may elect to terminate this Lease, by a notice to Landlord given not later than 30 (thirty) days following such Casualty. If Tenant makes such election, the term shall expire on the sixtieth (60th) day after notice of such election and Tenant shall vacate the Premises and surrender the same to Landlord.
12.5 Insufficient Proceeds. If this Article 12 obligates Landlord to repair damage to the improvements on the Premises caused by fire or other casualty and Landlord does not receive sufficient insurance proceeds (excluding any deficiency caused by the amount of any policy deductible) to repair all of the damage, or if Landlord’s lender does not allow Landlord to use sufficient proceeds to repair all of the damage, then Landlord, at Landlord’s option, by notifying Tenant within sixty (60) days after the casualty, may terminate this Lease effective on the date of Landlord’s notice.
12.6 Landlord’s Repair Obligations. If this Lease is not terminated under Sections 12.2 through 12.4 following a fire or other casualty, then Landlord will repair and restore the Building to as near their condition prior to the fire or other casualty as is reasonably possible with all commercially reasonable diligence and speed and Rent for the period during which the improvements on the Premises are untenantable will abate pro rata (based upon the untenantable portion of the improvements on the Premises as compared with the entirety of the improvements on the Premises). In no event is Landlord obligated to repair or restore any special equipment or improvements installed by Tenant, or any personal or other property of Tenant.
13.1 Termination of Lease. Should title or possession of all of the Premises be taken in condemnation proceedings by a government agency, governmental body or private party (“Condemning Authority”) under the exercise of the right of eminent domain (“Taking”), Landlord will notify Tenant and Landlord and Tenant will reasonably determine whether the Taking will render the Premises unsuitable for Tenant’s intended purposes. If Landlord and Tenant conclude that the Taking will render the Premises unsuitable for Tenant’s intended purposes, Landlord and Tenant will document such determination and this Lease will terminate upon such date Condemning Authority takes title or possession of the Premises. Tenant will pay Rent to the date of termination.
13.2 Landlord’s Repair Obligations. If this Lease does not terminate with respect to the entire Premises under Section 13.1 and the Taking includes a portion of the improvements on the Premises, this Lease automatically terminates as to the portion of the Premises taken upon such vesting of title or taking of possession and Landlord will, at its sole cost and expense, restore the remaining portion of the improvements, except any specialized improvements for fixtures installed for Tenant’s use of the Premises, on the Premises to a complete architectural unit with all commercially reasonable diligence and speed and will reduce the Base Rent for the period after the date the Condemning Authority takes possession of the portion of the Premises taken to a sum equal to the product of the Base Rent provided for in this Lease multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the square footage of the Premises after the Taking and after Landlord restores the Premises to a complete architectural unit, and the denominator of which is the square footage of the Premises prior to the Taking. Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent will abate on a proportionate basis with respect to that portion of the Premises remaining after the Taking that Tenant is unable to use during Landlord’s restoration for the period of time that Tenant is unable to use such portion of the Premises.
13.3 Tenant’s Participation. Landlord is entitled to receive and keep all damages, awards or payments resulting from or paid on account of a Taking. Accordingly, Tenant waives and assigns to Landlord any interest of Tenant in any such damages, awards or payments. Tenant may prove in any condemnation proceedings and may receive any separate award for damages to or condemnation of Tenant’s movable trade fixtures and equipment and for moving expenses; provided however, that Tenant has no right to receive any award for its interest in this Lease or for loss of leasehold.
CREDITORS; ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATES
14.1 Subordination. This Lease, all rights of Tenant in this Lease, and all interest or estate of Tenant in the Premises, is subject and subordinate to the lien of any to any deed of trust or mortgage encumbering all or any portion of the Premises, any advances made on the security thereof and any renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements or extensions thereof, whenever made or recorded (each a “Mortgage”). Tenant, on Landlord’s demand, will execute and deliver to Landlord or to any other person Landlord designates any commercially reasonable instruments, releases or other documents reasonably required to confirm the self- effectuating subordination of this Lease as provided in this Section 14.1 to the lien of any Mortgage. Tenant shall execute and deliver promptly any certificate or instrument, including, but not limited to, a tenant estoppel and assignment of lease and rents, in recordable form, that Landlord may request in confirmation of such subordination. The lien of any existing or future Mortgage will not cover Tenant’s moveable trade fixtures or other personal property of Tenant located in or on the Premises.
14.2 Nondisturbance. So long as no default exists under this Lease which at such time would then permit Landlord to terminate this Lease or to exercise any dispossess remedy provided for therein, (a) Tenant will not be made a party in any action or proceeding to foreclose the Mortgage or to remove or evict Landlord from the Premises; (b) Tenant will not be evicted or removed from the Premises nor will Tenant’s rights under the Lease be disturbed or Tenant’s possession or right to possession of the Premises be terminated or disturbed; and (c) the Mortgagee, upon succeeding to Landlord’s interest in the Premises, but limited to the time such Mortgagee holds Landlord’s interest in the Premises, will recognize this Lease for the full term hereof (including any and all extensions or renewals).
14.3 Attornment. If any ground lessor, holder of any Mortgage at a foreclosure sale or any other transferee acquires Landlord’s interest in this Lease or the Premises, Tenant will attorn to the transferee of or successor to Landlord’s interest in this Lease or the Premises (as the case may be) and recognize such transferee or successor as landlord under this Lease. In no event shall any such transferee of or successor to Landlord’s interest in this Lease or the Premises be bound by (i) any payment of rent or additional rent for more than one (1) month in advance, or (ii) any security deposit or the like not actually received by such successor, or (iii) any amendment or modification in this Lease made without the consent of the applicable holder of any Mortgage, or (iv) any construction obligation, free rent, or other concession or monetary allowance, or (v) any set-off, counterclaim, or the like otherwise available against any prior landlord (including Landlord), or (vi) any act or omission of any prior landlord (including Landlord).
14.4 Estoppel Certificate. Upon Landlord’s written request, Tenant will execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord a written statement in form satisfactory to Landlord certifying: (a) that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if there have been any modifications, that the Lease is in full force and effect, as modified, and stating the modifications); (b) that this Lease has not been canceled or terminated; (c) the last date of payment of Rent and the time period covered by such payment; (d) whether there are then existing any breaches or defaults by Landlord under this Lease known to Tenant, and, if so, specifying the same; (e) specifying any existing claims or defenses in favor of Tenant against the enforcement of this Lease; and (f) such other factual statements as Landlord, any lender, prospective lender, investor or purchaser may reasonably request. Tenant will deliver the statement to Landlord within ten (10) business days after Landlord’s request. Landlord may give any such statement by Tenant to any lender, prospective lender, investor or purchaser of all or any part of the Premises and any such party may conclusively rely upon such statement as true and correct.
ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLEASING
15.1 Relationship of Parties. Nothing contained in this Lease may be construed as creating the relationship of principal and agent, debtor and creditor, partnership, or joint venture. Neither the method of computation of Rent nor any other provision of this Lease, nor any act of the parties, will create any relationship other than that of landlord and tenant.
15.2 Successors and Assigns. This Lease shall benefit and bind the successors and assigns of Landlord and Tenant.
15.3 Assignment and Subletting.
15.3.1 Consent Required. Without Landlord’ express written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, Tenant shall not directly or indirectly, voluntarily or by operation of law, sell, assign, encumber, pledge, or otherwise transfer or hypothecate any of its interest in or rights with respect to the Premises, including a transfer of a controlling ownership interest in Tenant or of all or substantially all of Tenant’s assets (collectively, “Assignment”), or permit any portion of the Premises to be occupied by anyone other than Tenant or sublet all or any portion of the Premises or transfer a portion of its interest in or rights with respect to the Premises (collectively, “Sublease”). Without limiting Landlord’s right to withhold consent for any other reason deemed “reasonable”, Landlord will have reasonable basis to withhold its consent if Tenant tenders for Landlord’s approval an Assignment or Sublease of the Premises or any part of the Premises to a proposed assignee/subtenant who proposes to pay a base rent lower than the Base Rent payable under this Lease, who has been in negotiations with Landlord for other space owned by Landlord, who has been in litigation with Landlord within the past five years, whose use is unknown, whose financial condition indicates that it may not be able to perform its leasehold obligations or who, in the context of an assignment, does not assume the obligations of Tenant, who is of poor reputation in the local business community, who is a user of hazardous materials, or who has been convicted of any crime of moral turpitude or involving securities or tax law violations. Tenant will pay to Landlord 100% of all profit (other than profit from the sale of the business and other than as may be set forth below) derived by Tenant from such Assignment or Sublease.
15.3.2 Continuing Liability; Default; Waiver. Tenant shall not be relieved of any obligation to be performed by the tenant under this Lease, including the obligation to obtain Landlord’s consent to any other Assignment or Sublease, regardless of whether Landlord consented to any Assignment or Sublease. Any Assignment or Sublease that fails to comply with this Section 15.3 is void and of no force or effect and, at Landlord’s option, will constitute an Event of Default by Tenant under this Lease.
15.3.3 Assumption by Transferee. Each transferee under an Assignment shall assume all obligations of Tenant under this Lease and shall be and remain jointly and severally liable with Tenant for the payment of Rent and other charges, and for the performance of all other provisions of this Lease. Each Transferee under a Sublease shall be subject to this Lease.
15.4 Landlord’s Transfer. Landlord may sell, assign, or otherwise transfer all or any part of its interest in the Premises without the consent of Tenant. If Landlord should sell or transfer Landlord’s interest in the Premises, other than a transfer for security purposes only, then effective with the date of the sale or transfer, Landlord shall be automatically released and discharged from any further obligations and responsibilities under this Lease (except those already accrued).
Landlord covenants to control its activities and personnel such that if and so long as Tenant pays Rent as and when due and keeps, observes and fully satisfies all other covenants, obligations and agreements of Tenant under this Lease, Tenant shall hold and enjoy the Premises peaceably and quietly, subject to the provisions of this Lease.
TERMINATION OF LEASE
17.1 Condition. Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant shall quit and surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord. Tenant shall leave the Premises in as good repair and condition including but not limited to damage to walls repaired/patched, Premises cleaned, windows washed, debris removed from Premises, as the Premises are in on the Commencement Date of this Lease, reasonable wear and tear, casualty and repairs that are Landlord’s obligation, excepted. Tenant shall, without expense to Landlord, remove or cause to be removed from the Premises all furniture, equipment, business and trade fixtures, free- standing cabinetwork, movable partitions and other articles of personal property owned by Tenant and all similar items of any other persons claiming under Tenant. Tenant shall, before expiration of termination, repair all damage to the Premises resulting from such removal and otherwise restore the Premises. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall be obligated to remove any buildings, sheds, barns, canopies or similar fixtures owned by Tenant upon the Premises.
17.2 Holding Over. If Tenant possesses the Premises after the Lease Term expires or is otherwise terminated without executing a new lease, Tenant is deemed to be occupying the Premises without claim of right (but subject to all terms and conditions of this Lease) on a month to month basis and, in addition to Tenant’s liability for failing to surrender possession of the Premises as provided in Section 17.1, Tenant will pay Landlord a charge for each day of occupancy after expiration of the Term in an amount equal to one hundred fifty percent (150%) of Tenant’s then-existing Basic Rent (on a daily basis) plus one hundred percent (100%) of all Additional Rent in effect during the last month of the Lease Term (subject to increases thereafter as determined by Landlord in accordance with the provisions of this Lease).
17.3 Indemnity. If Tenant does not surrender the Premises upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, or in the condition required in this Lease, Tenant releases and will indemnify, defend (with counsel reasonably acceptable to Landlord) protect and hold harmless Landlord from and against any Claim resulting from Tenant failure to comply with this Article, including, without limitation, any Claim made by any succeeding occupant.
17.4 Abandoned Property. Any property of Tenant not removed or in the process of being removed by Tenant within seventy-two (72) hours of vacating the Premises shall be considered abandoned and Landlord may without liability reuse or remove and dispose of any or all of such items in any manner.

20.3 Transfer of Landlord’s Interest. In the event of any transfer or transfers of Landlord’s interest in the Property or the Building, other than a transfer for security purposes only, Tenant agrees that Landlord shall be automatically relieved of any and all obligations and liabilities on the part of Landlord accruing from and after the date of such transfer, and Tenant agrees to attorn to the transferee.
20.4 Entire Agreement; Amendment. The Basic Lease Information and all exhibits, addenda and schedules attached to this Lease are incorporated into this Lease as though fully set forth in this Lease and together with this Lease contain the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the improvement and leasing of the Premises. All prior and contemporaneous negotiations regarding the lease of the Premises, including, without limitation, any letters of intent or other proposals and any drafts and related correspondence, are merged into and superseded by this Lease. No subsequent alteration, amendment, change or addition to this Lease (other than to the building rules) is binding on Landlord or Tenant unless it is in writing and signed by the party to be charged with performance.
20.5 Severability. If any covenant, condition, provision, term or agreement of this Lease is, to any extent, held invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portion thereof and all other covenants, conditions, provisions, terms and agreements of this Lease, will not be affected by such holding, and will remain valid and in force to the fullest extent permitted by law.
20.6 Attorneys’ Fees. If either Landlord or Tenant commences any litigation or judicial action to determine or enforce any of the provisions of this Lease, the prevailing party in any such litigation or judicial action is entitled to recover all of its costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenditures) from the nonprevailing party.
20.7 Brokers. Landlord and Tenant each represents and warrants to the other that it has not had any dealings with any realtors, brokers, finders or agents in connection with this Lease, and release and will indemnify, defend and hold the other harmless from and against any claim based on the failure or alleged failure to pay any realtors, brokers, finders or agents from any cost, expense or liability for any compensation, commission or changes claimed by any realtors, brokers, finders or agents claiming by, through or on behalf of it with respect to this Lease or the negotiation of this Lease.

20.11 Relationship of Parties. This Lease does not create the relationship of principal and agent, or of partnership, joint venture, or of any association or relationship between Landlord and Tenant other than that of landlord and tenant.
20.12 Construction of Lease and Terms. The terms and provisions of this Lease represent the results of negotiations between Landlord and Tenant, each of which are sophisticated parties and each of which has been represented or been given the opportunity to be represented by counsel of its own choosing, and neither of which has acted under any duress or compulsion, whether legal, economic or otherwise. Consequently, the terms and provisions of this Lease must be interpreted and construed in accordance with their usual and customary meanings, and Landlord and Tenant each waive the application of any rule of law that ambiguous or conflicting terms or provisions contained in this Lease are to be interpreted or construed against the party who prepared the executed Lease or any earlier draft of the same. Landlord’s submission of this instrument to Tenant for examination or signature by Tenant does not constitute a reservation of or an option to lease and is not effective as a lease or otherwise until Landlord and Tenant both execute and deliver this Lease. The parties agree that, regardless of which party provided the initial form of this Lease, drafted or modified one or more provisions of this Lease, or compiled, printed or copied this Lease, this Lease is to be construed solely as an offer from Tenant to lease the Premises, executed by Tenant and provided to Landlord for acceptance on the terms set forth in this Lease, which acceptance and the existence of a binding agreement between Tenant and Landlord may then be evidenced only by Landlord’s execution of this Lease.
20.13 Counterparts. This Lease may be executed in any number of counterparts, all such counterparts shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument, and each of said counterparts shall be deemed an original hereof.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Lease to be duly executed as of the Effective Date.
