Tenant shall be in default of the Lease if Tenant: (i) fails to pay rent or additional rent when due; (ii) continues in possession of the Premises after the expiration of the Term; (iii) operates an illegal trade or business or engages in illegal conduct at the Premises or allow any other person to operate an illegal trade or business or engage in illegal conduct at the Premises; or (iv) fails to perform or comply with any other term or condition of this Lease.

Upon default, Tenant shall be responsible for the cost of repairs, attorneys’ fees for any legal work, court costs and disbursements, collection costs, advertising, and all other costs incurred in removing or attempting to remove the Tenant, preparing the Premises to be rented or if Landlord brings a petition to evict Tenant based upon a default by the Tenant. If Tenant is ultimately evicted, Tenant shall continue to be responsible for all rent for the unexpired term of the Lease if the Landlord is unable to re-rent the Premises; the issuance of an order of eviction shall not terminate Tenant’s obligation to pay rent for the unexpired term of the Lease.

In the event any provision of this Lease shall be held invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such holding shall not invalidate or render unenforceable any other provision hereof.

No Waiver
Landlord’s failure to enforce any terms of this Lease shall not prevent Landlord from enforcing such terms at a later time.
