Any attempted Transfer of Award LTIP Units or Common Units not in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Section 7 shall be null and void, and the Operating Partnership shall not reflect on its records any change in record ownership of any Award LTIP Units or Common Units as a result of any such Transfer, shall otherwise refuse to recognize any such Transfer and shall not in any way give effect to any such Transfer of any Award LTIP Units or Common Units.

No promises, assurances, commitments, agreements, undertakings or representations, whether oral, written, electronic or otherwise, and whether express or implied, with respect to the subject matter hereof, have been made by the parties which are not set forth expressly in this Agreement. The failure of the Grantee or the Company or the Operating Partnership to insist upon strict compliance with any provision of this Agreement, or to assert any right the Grantee or the Company or the Operating Partnership, respectively, may have under this Agreement, shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such provision or right or any other provision or right of this Agreement.
