Such monies are to considered additional rent. For example purposes only, if a rental payment is due on the first day of the month, with the above and foregoing three (3) day grace period, said rental payment would have to be hand-delivered to the Landlord by no later than the fourth day of the month, or if mailed by the Tenant, would have to be received by the Landlord by the fourth day of the month, in order to avoid any late charges.

If the premises shall be damaged by fire, the elements, accident or other casualty (any of such causes being referred to as a “casualty”), but the premises shall not be thereby rendered wholly or partially untenantable, then, subject to the provisions of this paragraph 22, Landlord shall promptly cause such damage to be repaired to the same condition as when possession was delivered and there shall be no abatement of rent. If, as the result of casualty, the premises shall be rented wholly or partially untenantable, then, subject to the provisions of this paragraph 22, Landlord shall cause such damage to be repaired to the same condition as when possession was delivered and all rent (other than any additional rent due Landlord by reason of Tenant’s failure to perform any of its obligations hereunder) shall be abated proportionately as to the portion of the premises rendered untenantable during the period of such untenantability. All such repairs shall be made at the expense of Landlord (unless said damages are the result of the intentional acts or negligence on the part of the Tenant or its employees or invitees); provided, however, that Landlord shall not be liable for interruption to Tenant’s business or for damage to or replacement or repair of Tenant’s personal property or to any leasehold improvements installed in the premises by or on behalf of Tenant, all of which damage, replacement or repair shall be undertaken and completed by Tenant promptly.

If Landlord’s building shall be so substantially damaged that it is reasonably necessary, in Landlord’s sole judgment, to demolish same for the purpose of reconstruction, Landlord may demolish the same, in which event the rent shall be abated to the same extent as if the premises were rendered untenantable by a casualty.

Landlord may elect to accept rent from such receiver, trustee, or other judicial officer during the term of their occupancy in their fiduciary capacity without affecting Landlord’s rights as contained in the Contract, but no receiver, trustee, or other officer shall ever have the right, title or interest in or to the above described property by virtue of this Contract.
