If Landlord should elect or be obligated pursuant to this Section 5.1 to repair or rebuild because of any damage or destruction, Landlord' s obligation shall be limited to the basic building and any other work or improvements which may have been originally performed or installed at Landlord's expense.

Tenant shall replace all work and improvements originally installed or performed by Tenant at its expense.


Upon the termination of this Lease pursuant to the provisions of this Section 5.1, the parties shall be released thereby without further obligations to the other party coincident with the surrender of possession of the Premises to Landlord, except for items which have theretofore accrued and be then unpaid.

Landlord shall not be liable for any damage to or loss of Tenant's personal property, inventory, fixtures, or improvements, from any cause whatsoever except the affirmative acts of proven negligence of Landlord, and then only to the extent not covered by insurance to be obtained by Tenant in accordance with Section 7 hereof.
