A receipt by Landlord of any rent or other sum due hereunder (including any late charge) with knowledge of the breach of any provision contained in this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach, and no waiver by Landlord of any provision of this Lease shall be deemed to have been made unless expressed in a writing signed by Landlord.
Tenant, subject to the terms of this Lease, upon paying the Base Rent and Additional Rent in full and performing the other terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease shall and may peaceably and quietly have, hold, occupy, possess and enjoy the Demised Premises during the Term of this Lease, without any interruption or disturbance from Landlord or by any other party claiming by, through or under Landlord, subject, however, to the terms of this Lease.
Landlord and Tenant each represent to the other that it neither dealt with nor negotiated with any broker or person acting as such with respect to this Lease. Each party covenants and agrees that should any claim be made by any real estate broker for a brokerage commission in connection with the negotiation for or the execution of this Lease on account of any act or statement made by such party, such party will indemnify and hold the other party hereto harmless from any and all liabilities and expenses, including attorneys' fees and disbursements, in connection therewith.
19.1 Except for its negligence or willful misconduct, Landlord shall not be responsible or liable for any damage or injury to any property, fixtures, merchandise or decorations or to any person or persons at any time on the Demised Premises from steam, gas, electricity, water, rain or snow, whether the same may leak into, issue or flow from any part of the Demised Premises or pipes or plumbing work of the same, of from any other place; nor shall Landlord be in any way responsible or liable in case of any accident or injury including death to any of Tenants employees, agents or invitees or to any person or persons in or about the Demised Premises or the streets, sidewalks or vaults adjacent thereto, and Tenant agrees that it will not hold Landlord in any way responsible or liable therefore, except if same stems from Landlord, or its agents, employees, contractors or invitees negligence or willful misconduct.
Landlord shall indemnify and hold Tenant harmless from and against any and all liability, damage, demand, fine, penalty, judgment, claim, actual, reasonable and out-of-pocket cost, loss or expense (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements) of whatsoever kind or nature resulting, directly or indirectly, from Landlords use or management and occupation of the Building or any adjoining sidewalk, curb or vault or from any work or thing whatsoever done or omitted to be done thereat by Landlord, its agents, contractors, employees, subtenants or invitees or from any accident thereat or from any breach or default by Landlord under any of the terms of this Lease.
19.2 Tenant shall indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from and against any and all liability, damage, demand, fine, penalty, judgment, claim, actual, reasonable and out-of-pocket cost, loss or expense (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements) of whatsoever kind or nature resulting, directly or indirectly, from Tenant's use or management and occupation of the Demised Premises or from any work or thing whatsoever done or omitted to be done thereat by Tenant, its agents, contractors, employees, subtenants or invitees or from any accident thereat or from any breach or default by Tenant under any of the terms of this Lease.
Default by Tenant. The occurrence of any one or more of the following events shall constitute an Event of Default for the purposes of this Lease:
the failure of Tenant to pay any part of the Base Rent, Additional Rent or other charge due under this Lease on or before its due date, which failure continues for ten (10) days after the receipt of written notice from Landlord;
the assignment, transfer or sublease of this Lease or the Demised Premises or any part thereof or of any interest therein without the prior written consent of Landlord;
abandonment of the Demised Premises, which shall occur upon the failure of the Tenant for thirty (30) consecutive days to occupy the Demised Premises for the purposes permitted under this Lease, unless such failure to occupy is governed by another provision of this Lease;
the appointment of a receiver or trustee over any part or all of Tenant's property or that of any successor to Tenant, which appointment shall not have been vacated or otherwise discharged within ninety (90) days after such appointment;
Tenant shall file a petition or be adjudged bankrupt or insolvent under any applicable federal or state bankruptcy or insolvency law or the voluntary or involuntary making by or against Tenant of a general assignment for the benefit of Tenants creditors, which assignment continues for ninety (90) days after such assignment;
failure of Tenant to perform any covenant or obligation contained herein, which failure has not been corrected by Tenant within forty-five (45) days following written notice from Landlord specifying the covenant or obligation to be remedied, or if the correction of same reasonably requires longer than forty-five (45) days, if Tenant shall not have commenced to correct the same within such forty-five (45) day period and thereafter be diligently proceeding to correct the same; or
if any representation or warranty made by or on behalf of Tenant in this Lease shall have been known by Tenant to be false or incorrect or breached when made.
Landlord's Rights and Remedies. Upon the happening and continuance of any Event of Default, beyond applicable notice or cure periods, Landlord, at its option, shall have the following rights and remedies in addition to any rights provided by applicable law, all of which shall be cumulative:
Perform any covenant or obligation of Tenant and charge the reasonable cost of the cure as Additional Rent due and payable with the next installment or installments of the Base Rent due.
Retake possession of the Demised Premises through summary dispossess proceedings or such other means as permitted by law and relet the Demised Premises or any part thereof to a third party. If the Landlord relets the Demised Premises (either for a term greater than, less than or equal to the unexpired portion of the ten-current Term) for an aggregate rent during the portion of such new lease which is less than the Base Rent and other charges which Tenant would pay hereunder for such period, Landlord may immediately upon the making of such new lease, sue for and recover the difference between the aggregate rental provided for in said new lease for the balance of the term coextensive with the current term of this Lease, and the Base Rent which Tenant would pay hereunder for such period, together with any reasonable, actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses to which Landlord may be put for brokerage commissions, placing the Demised Premises in tenantable condition, and other related charges or expenses accrued prior to the new lease or otherwise. In the event Landlord does not collect the entire amount of the aggregate rental provided for in such new lease, Landlord may sue for and recover the difference between the amount of such aggregate rental actually collected and the Base Rent which Tenant would pay hereunder. If such new lease or tenancy is made for a shorter term than the balance of the current Term of this Lease or for a greater rental, any such action brought by Landlord to collect the deficit for that period shall not bar Landlord from thereafter suing for any loss accruing during the balance of the unexpired term whether or not due to expiration or termination of the new lease.
Give a notice of termination of this Lease for any material non-monetary default (regardless of whether Landlord prior to the giving of such notice shall have accepted rent or any other payment, however designated, for the use and occupancy of the Demised Premises from or on behalf of Tenant or from any other person) to Tenant specifying such Event or Events of Default and stating that this Lease and the Lease Term shall expire and terminate on the date specified in such notice, which date shall be at least forty-five (45) days after the giving of such notice during which time Tenant shall have the right to cure or, if the default cannot be reasonably cured during such period, to commence the curative process and to diligently pursue such cure thereafter. Subject to the foregoing, in the event such notice is given and cure is not commenced, this Lease and the Lease Term and all rights of Tenant under this Lease shall expire and terminate upon the date specified in such notice with the same effects as if the date specified in such notice were the date originally set forth in this Lease for the expiration of the Term, but Tenant shall remain liable as provided in this Section 20.2.
Landlord's failure to insist on the strict performance of and compliance with each condition in this Lease shall neither constitute nor be construed as constituting a waiver by Landlord of Landlord's rights under this Article 20 or under applicable law, nor constitute nor be construed as consisting of a waiver by Landlord of a second or subsequent default by Tenant of the same condition. Acceptance of past due Base Rent, Additional Rent or other sums due shall in no way act as a waiver of Tenant's default nor prevent Landlord from proceeding as above stated. In the event litigation is commenced, it shall not be necessary for Landlord to notify Tenant of any additional occurrences of default prior to proceeding as permitted.
No such expiration or termination of this Lease shall relieve Tenant of its liability and obligation to pay the Base Rent and Additional Rent theretofore accrued or thereafter accruing, and such liability and obligation shall survive any such expiration or termination.
INSPECTION OF DEMISED PREMISES BY LANDLORD
Landlord shall have the right to enter the Demised Premises upon reasonable prior notice during business hours and at all other reasonable times for purposes of:
inspecting the same;
making any repairs to the Demised Premises and performing any work therein that may be necessary by reason of Tenant's default under the terms of this Lease continuing beyond the applicable periods of grace or notice;
exhibiting the Demised Premises for the purposes of sale or mortgage; and
exhibiting the Demised Premises (within one year prior to the expiration of the current term of this Lease) to prospective tenants.
Such entry shall not unreasonably interfere with the normal manner in which Tenant operates the Demised Premises nor with any space Tenant occupies in the Demised Premises. Nothing in this Lease shall imply any duty upon the part of Landlord to do any such work which, under any of the provisions of this Lease, Tenant may be required to perform, and the performance thereof by Landlord shall not constitute a waiver of Tenant's default or of Landlord's rights and remedies against Tenant under this Lease or by applicable law.
LIMITATION OF LANDLORD'S LIABILITY
The term "Landlord", as used in this Lease, so far as covenants and agreements on the part of Landlord are concerned, shall be limited to mean and include only the owner or owners at the time in question of the Landlord's interest in the Demised Premises, and in the event of any assignment(s) or transfer(s) of the title to such interest (whether or not the assignee or transferee is financially solvent or responsible and whether or not the assignor or transferor may be a stockholder, director, or officer of a corporate assignee or transferee), Landlord herein named (and in case of any subsequent transfers or assignments, the then transferor or assignor) shall be automatically freed and relieved from and after the date of such transfer and assignment of all personal liability as respects the performance of any covenants and agreements on the part of Landlord contained in this Lease thereafter to be performed. Such assignee or transferee shall be bound by all of the covenants and agreements in this Lease contained to be performed on the part of Landlord. The covenants and agreements contained in this Lease on the part of Landlord to be performed shall, subject as aforesaid, be binding on Landlord, its successors and assigns, only during and in respect of their successive periods of ownership.
Tenant shall look solely to the interest of Landlord in the Demised Premises for the satisfaction of any remedy of Tenant for any failure to perform any of Landlord's obligations hereunder. Neither Landlord nor any disclosed or undisclosed principal of Landlord or any beneficial owner (or officer, director, stockholder, partner or agent of Landlord or of any such principal or beneficial owner) shall have any personal liability for any failure of Landlord hereunder.
IMPAIRMENT OF LANDLORD'S TITLE
Nothing contained in this Lease or any action or inaction by Landlord shall be deemed or construed to mean that Landlord has granted to Tenant any right, power or permission to do any act or make any agreement which may create, give rise to, or be the foundation for, any right, title, interest, lien, charge or other encumbrances upon the estate of Landlord in the Demised Premises.
In amplification and not in limitation of the foregoing, Tenant shall not permit any portion of the Demised Premises to be used by any person or persons or by the public, as such, at any time, or times during the Term of this Lease, in such manner as might reasonably tend to impair Landlord's title to the Demised Premises or any portion thereof, or in such manner as might reasonably make possible a claim or claims of adverse use, adverse possession, prescription, dedication, or other similar claims of, in, to or with respect to the Demised Premises or any part thereof.
NO REPRESENTATION BY LANDLORD
Landlord has made no representations whatsoever with respect to the Demised Premises, except as herein expressly set forth. Except as specifically set forth herein, this Lease contains the entire agreement between Landlord and Tenant and all prior negotiations and agreements are merged herein. Tenant assumes the sole responsibility for the condition, maintenance, operation and management of the Demised Premises and Landlord shall have no liability for damage to Tenant's or any subtenants personal property on the Demised Premises on any account or for any reason whatsoever.
Wherever used in this Article, the following words shall have the definition and meaning hereinafter set forth:
(a) "condemnation proceedings": Any action or proceeding brought for the purpose of any taking of the fee of the Demised Premises or any part thereof by governmental authority as a result of the exercise of the power of eminent domain.
(b) "taking" or "taken": The event and date of vesting of title to the Demised Premises or any part thereof pursuant to the condemnation proceedings.
In the event of the taking of the whole or any part of the Demised Premises at any time during the Term or Renewal Term, as the case may be, Landlord and Tenant may pursue their own actions, claims and awards against the condemning authority, and the rights of Landlord and Tenant to receive awards for the taking shall be as follows:
(a) To Landlord, the value of Landlords interest, subject to the leasehold interest created by this Lease;
(b) To Tenant, the value of fixtures and improvements owned by Tenant, the value of the loss of Tenants leasehold (including any loss of access to the Demised Premises), business interruption and relocation expenses.
In the event Landlord is awarded or receives compensation that belongs to Tenant, Tenant may recover Tenants award from Landlord, and to the extent Tenant is awarded or receives compensation that belongs to Landlord, Landlord may recover Landlords award from Tenant.
If less than all of the Demised Premises is taken in condemnation proceedings so that Tenants business may be reasonably and economically continued in Tenants sole but reasonable discretion, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as to the portion of the Demised Premises not taken and Landlord, at its own expense shall commence and proceed with reasonable diligence to repair or reconstruct the Demised Premises and the award in condemnation proceedings shall be paid to the Landlord.
In the event of a taking of a portion of the Demised Premises in condemnation proceedings, the Base Rent payable by Tenant under this Lease shall be paid at the rate payable immediately before the taking multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the square footage of the Demised Premises after the taking and the denominator of which is the square footage of the Demised Premises prior to the taking, and proper adjustment shall be made after the new amount has been finally determined under this Section.
If any right of temporary possession or occupancy (for less than thirty (30) days) of all or any portion of the Demised Premises is obtained by federal, state, or municipal governmental authority in the exercise of the power of eminent domain, the foregoing provisions of this Article shall be inapplicable thereto, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect without reduction or abatement of rent, and Tenant shall be entitled to make claim for, recover and retain any award or awards, whether in the form of rental or otherwise, recoverable in respect of such possession or occupancy. However, if such temporary use is for a period extending beyond the term of this Lease, Landlord also shall be entitled to make claim for and participate in the award proportionately. If the award is made in a lump sum, such award shall be apportioned between Landlord and Tenant; and the portion thereof allocable to a period within the Terms of this Lease shall be paid to Landlord against the Base Rent and Additional Rent payable by Tenant under this Lease as they become due, any deficiency to be paid by Tenant.
If Landlord or Tenant receive notice of any proposed or pending condemnation proceeding affecting the Demised Premises, the party receiving such notice shall promptly notify the other party of the receipt and contents thereof.
This Lease will be subject and subordinate to the lien of any current or future mortgages which may affect the Demised Premises, and to all renewals, modifications, consolidations and extensions, or replacements thereof.
The provisions of this entire Article 26 will be self-operative and no further instrument of subordination need be required by any mortgagee. In confirmation of such subordination, Tenant will promptly, upon Landlords written demand, execute, acknowledge and deliver any certificate or other written instrument to the foregoing effect. Tenant hereby constitutes and appoints Landlord the Tenants attorney-in-fact to execute any such certificate or certificates for and on behalf of the Tenant in the event that the Tenant fails to deliver an executed certificate or other instrument so demanded by the Landlord within ten (10) business days of receipt of such written demand.
If, in connection with any financing related to the Demised Premises, the holder or prospective holder of any mortgage shall request reasonable, non-material modifications in this Lease as a condition of approval thereof, Tenant will not unreasonably withhold, delay or defer making such modifications.
SECURITY DEPOSIT AND SECURITY INTEREST
Tenant hereby deposits Seven Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($7,000.00) as and for a security deposit (the Security Deposit), which shall be promptly returned to Tenant after the Lease has expired or sooner terminated and Tenant has vacated the premises, provided Tenant has materially fulfilled all of the terms of said Lease.
INVALIDITY OF PARTICULAR PROVISIONS - CONSTRUCTION
If any term, covenant or condition of this Lease or the application thereof to any person or circumstances, to any extent, is invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease, or the application of such term, covenant or condition to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is held invalid or unenforceable shall not be affected thereby and each term, covenant and condition of this lease shall be valid and be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
This Lease shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon Landlord and Tenant and their respective heirs, distributees, legal representatives, successors and assigns, except as otherwise provided herein.
Each party, at the expense of the other party, shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the other party such instruments and take such other action, in addition to the instruments and actions provided for herein as the other party may reasonably request in order to effectuate the purposes or provisions of this Lease or any transaction contemplated herein or to protect or confirm any right created or transferred hereunder or pursuant to any such transaction.
The captions of Articles in this Lease are inserted only as a convenience and for reference and they in no way define, limit or describe the scope of this Lease or the intent of any provision thereof.
No modification or amendment of this lease or any provision hereof shall be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom enforcement of the modification or amendment is sought.
This Lease shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the law of the State of New York.
Tenant shall not record this Lease and any such recording by Tenant shall constitute an Event of Default, except in conjunction with an action for specific performance.
Tenant covenants and agrees not to suffer, permit, introduce or maintain in, on or about any portion of the Demised Premises, any asbestos, polychlorinated biphenyls, petroleum products or any other hazardous or toxic materials, wastes and substances which are defined, determined or identified as such in any Federal, state or local laws, rules or regulations (whether now existing or hereafter enacted or promulgated) or any judicial or administrative interpretation of any thereof, including any judicial or administrative orders or judgments (herein collectively called "Hazardous Materials"). Tenant further covenants and agrees to indemnify, protect and save Landlord harmless against and from any and all damages, losses, liabilities, obligations, penalties, claims, litigation, demands, defenses, judgments, suits, proceedings, costs, disbursements or expenses of any kind or of any nature whatsoever (including, without limitation, attorneys' and experts' fees and disbursements) which may at any time be imposed upon, incurred by or asserted or awarded against Landlord and arising from or out of any Hazardous Materials on, in, under or affecting all or any portion of the Demised Premises, introduced by, or on behalf of, Tenant including, without limitation (i) the costs of removal of any and all Hazardous Materials from all or any portion of the Demised Premises, (ii) additional costs required to take necessary precautions to protect against the release of Hazardous Materials on, in, under or affecting the Demised Premises, into the air, any body of water, any other public domain or any surrounding areas and (iii) any costs incurred to comply, in connection with all or any portion of the Demised Premises, with all applicable laws, orders, judgments and regulations with respect to Hazardous Materials. Tenants obligations hereunder shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
INABILITY TO PERFORM
This Lease and the obligations of Tenant to pay Base Rent and Additional Rent hereunder and to perform all of the other covenants and agreements hereunder on the part of the Tenant to be performed shall in no way be affected, impaired or excused nor shall Tenant have a right to terminate this Lease because Landlord is unable to fulfill any of its obligations, without limitation, under this Lease, if such inability by Landlord is caused by conditions beyond Landlords control including, but not limited to Acts of God, Government restrictions (including the denial or cancellation of any export or other necessary license), wars, insurrections and/or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of Landlord.
