D. Payment of Rent. All payments of Rent or other sums to be made to Landlord shall be made at such place as Landlord shall designate in writing from time to time. Landlord may accept less than the full amount of Rent due at any time, and such acceptance shall not constitute a waiver of Landlord’s right to insist upon full payment of all Rent and other charges due under this Lease.


4. Assignment. Tenant covenants not to assign or transfer this Lease or hypothecate or mortgage the same or sublet the Premises or any part thereof without the written consent of the Landlord, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Unless expressly agreed to in writing by Landlord, Landlord’s consent to an assignment or transfer of this Lease shall not relieve Tenant of its obligations under this Lease.

ii.If a Writ of Attachment or Execution is levied upon Tenant on this Lease; or


iii.If, in any proceeding or action to which Tenant is a party, a receiver is appointed with authority to take possession of the Premises.


An involuntary assignment may be construed as a default by Tenant and could terminate Tenant’s right to possession of the Premises, and Landlord shall have the right to elect to terminate this Lease. This Lease shall not be treated as an asset of Tenant in the event Landlord terminates this Lease. If Landlord has no legal right to terminate this Lease and Tenant, as a debtor-in-possession pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code, or its trustee, elects to assume this Lease, adequate assurance of future performance must be given in addition to the cure of all outstanding defaults.

Tenant shall, in such event, attorn to such holder and purchaser. The Tenant subordination and attornment and the rights of non- disturbance shall be memorialized by a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement in a commercially-reasonable form, acceptable to Tenant, Landord (if requiring Landlord’s signature) and such mortgagee.

All insurance required of Tenant shall be placed with an insurance company authorized to issue property and casualty insurance in the State of Michigan and having a Best rating of “A, Class XII” or better.
