Late payments may, at the Lessor's option, be subject to a penalty of 5% of the overdue balance. Payments more than 5 days past due are considered late. Late or delinquent payments will be considered an event of default. Lessee agrees to pay Lessor's costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, related to collection of late or delinquent payments.




In the event that Lessor fails to vacate the Leased Premises by the expiration date pursuant to Subsection 2 or fails to extend the term of the Lease prior to its expiration date, then the rent for each month or part thereof beyond the expiration date shall be payable at two hundred percent of the then-current monthly rate specified in Subsection 3.
