7.California Mandatory Disclosures regarding the Nature of A Real Estate Agency Relationship and Indemnity: When entering into a discussion with a real estate agent regarding a real estate transaction, a Lessee or Lessor should from the outset understand what type of agency relationship or representation it has with the agent or agents in the transaction. Lessee and Lessor acknowledge being advised by the Brokers in this transaction as follows:
A real estate agent, either acting directly or through one or more associate licenses, can legally be the agent of both the Lessor and the Lessee in a transaction, but only with the knowledge and consent of both the Lessor and the Lessee. In a dual agency situation, the agent has the following affirmative obligations to both the Lessor and the Lessee: A fiduciary duty of utmost care, integrity, honesty, and loyalty in dealing with the Lessor and Lessee. A diligent exercise of reasonable skills and care in performance of the agent’s duties. A duty of honest and fair dealing and good faith. A duty to disclose all facts, known to the agent, materially affecting the value or desirability of the property that are not known to, or within the diligent attention and observation of, the Parties. An agent is not obligated to reveal to either Party any confidential information obtained from the other Party which does not involve the affirmative duties set forth above.
In representing both Lessor and Lessee, the agent may not without the express written permission of the respective party, disclose to the other party that the Lessor will accept rent in an mount less than indicated in the listing or that the Lessee is willing to pay a higher rent than that offered. The above duties of the agent in the real estate transaction do not relieve Lessor or Lessee from the responsibility to protect their own interests. Lessor and Lessee should carefully read all agreements to assure that they adequately express their understanding of the transaction. A real estate agent is a person qualified to advise about real estate. If legal or tax advice is desired, consult a competent professional.
Brokers have no responsibility with respect to any default or breach hereof by either Party. The Parties agree that no lawsuit or other legal proceeding involving any breach of duty, error or omission relating to the proposed Lease may be brought against Broker, except where Broker is found liable for gross negligence or wrongful misconduct. The liability (including court costs and attorney’s fees), shall not exceed the fee received by such Broker pursuant to the proposed Lease.

Lessee agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Medical Asset Management its representatives, contractors, agents, and employees for any liability or loss, including without limitations, attorney fees and cost that may be occasioned as a result of the execution of this Lease.

The following disclosure is hereby made pursuant to applicable California law: "A Certified Access Specialist (CASp) can inspect the subject premises and determine whether the subject premises comply with all of the applicable construction-related accessibility standards under state law.
