|iv.||Should Sublessor or the Master Lessor under the Master Lease elect to repair and restore the Leased Premises to their former condition following partial or full destruction of the Leased Premises:|
|1.||Sublessee shall not be entitled to any damages for any loss or inconvenience sustained by Sublessee by reason of the making of such repairs and restoration.|
|2.||Sublessor and such Master Lessor shall have full right to enter upon and have access to the Leased Premises, or any portion thereof, as may be reasonably necessary to enable such parties promptly and efficiently to carry out the work of repair and restoration.|
|f.||Damage by Sublessee: Sublessee shall be responsible for and shall pay to Sublessor any and all losses, damages, costs, and expenses, including but not limited to attorney's fees, resulting from any casualty loss caused by the negligence or wilful misconduct of Sublessee or its employees, agents, contractors, or invitees.|
16. SUBLEASING, ASSIGNMENT, DEFAULT AND TERMINATION
|a.||Subleasing and Assignment: Sublessee shall not sell, assign, hypothecate, pledge or otherwise transfer this Sublease, or any interest therein, either voluntarily, involuntarily, or by operation of law, and shall not sublet the Leased Premises, or any part thereof, or any right or privilege appurtenant thereto, for any reason whatsoever, or permit the occupancy thereof by any person, persons, or entity through or under it, or grant a security interest in Sublessee's interest in the Leased Premises or this Sublease or any fixtures located on the Leased Premises, without the prior written consent of Sublessor first had and obtained, which may be given or withheld in the Sublessor’s sole and absolute discretion. For the purpose of this Section, any dissolution, merger, consolidation or other reorganization of Sublessee, or any change or changes in the stock ownership of Sublessee, which aggregates [%] or more of the capital stock of Sublessee shall be deemed to be an assignment of this Sublease. Sublessee shall not mortgage, hypothecate or encumber this Sublease. Sublessor's consent to one assignment, subletting, occupancy, or use by any other person, entity or entities shall not relieve Sublessee from any obligation under this Sublease and shall not be deemed to be a consent to any subsequent assignment, subletting, occupancy or use. Any assignment, pledge, subletting, occupancy or use without Sublessor's written consent shall be void and shall, at the option of the Sublessor, terminate this Sublease.|
|Should this Sublease be assigned, or should the Leased Premises or any part thereof be sublet or occupied by any person or persons other than the original Sublessee hereunder, Sublessor may collect rent from the assignee, sublessee or occupant and apply the net amount collected to the rent herein reserved, but no such assignment, subletting, occupancy or collection of rent shall be deemed a consent to such assignment, subletting or occupancy or a waiver of any term of this Sublease, nor shall it be deemed acceptance of the assignee, sublessee or occupant as a tenant, or a release of Sublessee from the full performance by Sublessee of all the terms, provisions, conditions and covenants of this Sublease.|
|In the event Sublessee wishes to assign this Sublease or sublet or allow the use of the Leased Premises or any part thereof, Sublessee shall give Sublessor not less than thirty (30) days written notice thereof and shall, in such notice, provide the name of the proposed assignee or sublessee, its proposed use of the Leased Premises, its background, such financial and credit information as Sublessor may require to determine the business experience, financial stability and creditworthiness of the proposed assignee or sublessee, and such additional information as Sublessor may request. Sublessee shall also pay Sublessor a one-time administrative fee equal to the rent to reimburse Sublessor for its costs of reviewing, analyzing and processing the request for consent to assignment or subletting.|
|In addition to its right to consent or refuse to consent to a proposed assignment Sublessor shall have the option, exercisable by written notice to Sublessee within the 30 days after Sublessee gives Sublessor written notice of its desire to assign the Sublease, to terminate this Sublease with respect to the entire Leased Premises upon a date specified in said notice to Sublessee not less than 30 days nor more than 25 days after the date of said notice and retake the Leased Premises for its own use. If Sublessor exercises such option, Sublessee shall nonetheless have the right, exercisable by notice given to Sublessor within 30 days after Sublessor's notice of exercise is given, to withdraw the proposed assignment from consideration, in which event the exercise of Sublessor's option shall be of no force or effect and, except for the payment of the fee provided for in Subsection (c) above, the assignment shall be deemed not to have been proposed. If Sublessor does not elect to exercise its option to terminate this Lease and consents to the assignment or sublease, said assignee or sublessee shall pay directly to Sublessor all rent or other consideration payable by the assignee or sublessee in excess of the amount of rent or other consideration payable by Sublessee to Sublessor hereunder (whether denominated as rent or otherwise) and shall expressly assume Sublessee's obligations hereunder.|
|As a condition to Sublessor's consent to an assignment or subletting, Sublessor shall be entitled to receive (i) in the case of a subletting, 100% of all rent (however denominated and paid) payable by the subtenant to Sublessee in excess of that payable by Sublessee to Sublessor pursuant to the other provisions of this Sublease, and (ii) in the case of an assignment, 100% of all consideration given, directly or indirectly, by the assignee to Sublessee in connection with such assignment. For purposes of this paragraph, the term “rent” shall mean and include all consideration paid or given, directly or indirectly, for the use of the Leased Premises or any portion thereof, and the term “consideration” shall mean and include money, services, property or any other thing of value such as payment of costs, cancellation of indebtedness, discounts, rebates and the like. Any rent or other consideration which is to be passed through to Sublessor pursuant to this paragraph shall be paid to Sublessor promptly upon receipt by Sublessee and shall be paid in cash, regardless of the form in which received by Sublessee. In the event any rent or other consideration received by Sublessee is in a form other than cash, Sublessee shall pay to Sublessor in cash the fair value of Sublessor's portion of such consideration.|
|b.||Events of Default: Sublessee's failure to timely pay any rent, taxes or other charges required to be paid pursuant to the terms of this Sublease shall constitute a material breach of this Sublease and an event of default if not paid by Sublessee within 3 days of the date such rent, taxes or charges are payable. Events of default under this Sublease shall also include, without limitation, the events hereinafter set forth, each of which shall be deemed a material default of the terms of the Sublease if not fully cured within 10 days of occurrence. Such events shall include:|
|i.||Sublessee’s failure to perform or observe any term, provisions, covenant, agreement or condition of this Sublease;|
|ii.||Sublessee breaches this Sublease and abandons the Leased Premises before expiration of the Term of this Sublease;|
|iii.||Any representation or warranty made by Sublessee in connection with this Sublease between Sublessee and Sublessor proving to have been incorrect in any respect;|
|iv.||Sublessee's institution of any proceedings under the Bankruptcy Act, as such Act now exists or under any similar act relating to the subject of insolvency or bankruptcy, whether in such proceeding Sublessee seeks to be adjudicated a bankrupt, or to be discharged of its debts or effect a plan of liquidation, composition or reorganization;|
|v.||The filing against Sublessee of any involuntary proceeding under any such bankruptcy laws;|
|vi.||Sublessee's becoming insolvent or being adjudicated a bankrupt in any court of competent jurisdiction, or the appointment of a receiver or trustee of Sublessee's property, or Sublessee's making an assignment for the benefit of creditors;|
|vii.||The issuance of a writ of attachment by any court of competent jurisdiction to be levied on this Lease; or|
|viii.||Any event which is an event of default under the Master Lease or which would become so with the passage of time or the giving of notice or both.|
|c.||Sublessor's Remedies for Sublessee's Default: Upon the occurrence of any event of default described in Section 10.02 hereof, Sublessor may, at its option and without any further demand or notice, in addition to any other remedy or right given hereunder or by law, do any of the following:|
|i.||Sublessor may terminate Sublessee's right to possession of the Leased Premises by giving written notice to Sublessee. If Sublessor gives such written notice, then on the date specified in such notice, this Sublease and Sublessee's right of possession shall terminate. No act by Sublessor other than giving such written notice to Sublessee shall terminate this Sublease. Acts of maintenance, efforts to relet the Leased Premises, or the appointment of a receiver on Sublessor's initiative to protect Sublessor's interest under this Sublease shall not constitute a termination of Sublessee's right to possession. On termination, Sublessor has the right to recover from Sublessee:|
|1.||The worth at the time of the award of the unpaid rent and other charges that had been earned or owed to Sublessor at the time of termination of this Sublease;|
|2.||The worth at the time of the award of the amount by which (a) the unpaid rent and other charges that would have been earned or owed to Sublessor after the date of termination of this Sublease until the time of award exceeds (b) the amount of such rental loss that Sublessee proves could have been reasonably avoided;|
|3.||The worth at the time of the award of the amount by which (a) the unpaid rent and other charges for the balance of the term after the time of award exceeds (b) the amount of such rental loss that Sublessee proves could have been reasonably avoided; and|
|4.||Any other amount necessary to compensate Sublessor for all the detriment caused by Sublessee's failure to perform its obligations under this Sublease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result therefrom, including without limitation any costs or expenses incurred by Sublessor in recovering possession of the Leased Premises, maintaining or preserving the Leased Premises after such default, preparing the Leased Premises for reletting to a new tenant, or any repairs or alterations to the Leased Premises for such reletting, and all leasing commissions, reasonable attorney's fees, architect's fees and any other costs incurred by Sublessor to relet the Leased Premises or to adapt them to another beneficial use. Sublessee shall also indemnify, defend and hold Sublessor harmless from all claims, demands, actions, liabilities and expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorney's fees and costs) arising prior to the termination of this Sublease or arising out of Sublessee's use or occupancy of the Leased Premises.|
|ii.||Sublessor may, in any lawful manner, re-enter and take possession of the Leased Premises without terminating this Sublease or otherwise relieving Sublessee of any obligation hereunder. Sublessor is hereby authorized, but not obligated (except to the extent required by law), to relet the Leased Premises or any part thereof on behalf of the Sublessee, to use the premises for its or its affiliates' account, to incur such expenses as may be reasonably necessary to relet the Leased Premises, and relet the Leased Premises for such term, upon such conditions and at such rental as Sublessor in its sole discretion may determine. Until the Leased Premises are relet by Sublessor, if at all, Sublessee shall pay to Sublessor all amounts required to be paid by Sublessee hereunder. If Sublessor relets the Leased Premises or any portion thereof, such reletting shall not relieve Sublessee of any obligation hereunder, except that Sublessor shall apply the rent or other proceeds actually collected by it as a result of such reletting against any amounts due from Sublessee hereunder to the extent that such rent or other proceeds compensate Sublessor for the non-performance of any obligation of Sublessee hereunder. Such payments by Sublessee shall be due at such times as are provided elsewhere in this Sublease, and Sublessor need not wait until the termination of this Sublease, by expiration of the term hereof or otherwise, to recover them by legal action or in any other manner. Sublessor may execute any lease made pursuant hereto in its own name, and the tenant thereunder shall be under no obligation to see to the application by Sublessor of any rent or other proceeds by Sublessor, nor shall Sublessee have any right to collect any such rent or other proceeds. Sublessor shall not by any re-entry or other act be deemed to have accepted any surrender by Sublessee of the Leased Premises or Sublessee's interest therein, or be deemed to have otherwise terminated this Sublease, or to have relieved Sublessee of any obligation hereunder, unless Sublessor shall have given Sublessee express written notice of Sublessor's election to do so as set forth herein.|
|iii.||Even though Sublessee has breached this Sublease and may have abandoned or vacated the Leased Premises, this Sublease shall continue in effect for so long as Sublessor does not terminate Sublessee's right to possession, and Sublessor may enforce all its rights and remedies under this Sublease, including the right to recover the rent and other charges as they become due under this Lease.|
|iv.||In the event any personal property of Sublessee remains at the Leased Premises after Sublessee has vacated, it shall be dealt with in accordance with the statutory procedures provided by applicable law dealing with the disposition of personal property of Sublessee remaining on the Leased Premises after Sublessee has vacated.|
|v.||Sublessor may exercise any right or remedy reserved to the Master Lessor under the Master Lease (each of which rights and remedies are hereby incorporated herein), and any other remedy or right now or hereafter available to a landlord against a defaulting tenant under applicable law or the equitable powers of its courts, whether or not otherwise specifically reserved herein.|
|vi.||Sublessor shall be under no obligation to observe or perform any provision, term, covenant, agreement or condition of this Sublease on its part to be observed or performed which accrues after the date of any default by Sublessee hereunder.|
|vii.||Any legal action by Sublessor to enforce any obligation of Sublessee or in the pursuance of any remedy hereunder shall be deemed timely filed if commenced at any time prior to 4 years after the expiration of the term hereof or prior to 4 years after the cause of action accrues, whichever period expires later.|
|viii.||In any action of unlawful detainer commenced by Sublessor against Sublessee by reason of any default hereunder, the reasonable rental value of the Leased Premises for the period of the unlawful detainer shall be deemed to be the amount of rent and additional charges reserved in this Sublease for such period.|
|ix.||Sublessee hereby waives any right of redemption or relief from forfeiture under any present or future law, if Sublessee is evicted or Sublessor takes possession of the Leased Premises by reason of any default by Sublessee hereunder.|
|x.||No delay or omission of Sublessor to exercise any right or remedy shall be construed as a waiver of any such right or remedy or of any default by Sublessee hereunder.|
|d.||Receiver: Upon the occurrence of any event of default as defined in Article 16 b) hereof or in any action instituted by Sublessor against Sublessee to take possession of the Leased Premises and/or to collect Base Minimum Rent, or any other charge due hereunder, a receiver may be appointed at the request of Sublessor to collect such rents and profits, to conduct the business of Sublessee then being carried on in the Leased Premises and to take possession of any property belonging to Sublessee and used in the conduct of such business and use the same in conducting such business on the Leased Premises without compensation to Sublessee for such use. Neither the application nor the appointment of such receiver shall be construed as an election on the Sublessor’s part to terminate this Sublease unless written notice of such intention is given by Sublessor to Sublessee.|
|e.||Attorneys' Fees: If as a result of any breach or default in the performance of any of the provisions of this Sublease, Sublessor uses the services of an attorney in order to secure compliance with such provisions or recover damages therefor, or to terminate this Sublease or evict Sublessee, Sublessee shall reimburse Sublessor upon demand for any and all attorneys' fees and expenses so incurred by Sublessor, including without the limitation appraisers' and expert witness fees; provided that if Sublessee shall be the prevailing party in any legal action brought by Sublessor against Sublessee, Sublessee shall be entitled to recover the fees of its attorneys in such amount as the court may adjudge reasonable. Sublessee shall advance to Sublessor any and all attorneys' fees and expenses to be incurred or incurred by Sublessor in connection with any modifications to this Sublease proposed by Sublessee, any proposed assignment of this Sublease by Sublessee or any proposed subletting of the Leased Premises by Sublessee.|
|f.||Cumulative Remedies; No Waiver: The specified remedies to which Sublessor may resort under the terms hereof are cumulative and are not intended to be exclusive of any other remedy or means of redress to which Sublessor may be lawfully entitled in case of any breach or threatened breach by Sublessee of any provision hereof. If for any reason Sublessor fails or neglects to take advantage of any of the terms of this Sublease providing for termination or other remedy, any such failure of Sublessor shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any default of any of the provisions, terms, covenants, agreements or conditions of this Sublease. The waiver by Sublessor of any breach of any term, condition or covenant herein contained shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other term, condition or covenant herein contained. None of the provisions, terms, covenants, agreements or conditions hereof can be waived except by the express written consent of Sublessor. Subsequent acceptance of rent hereunder by Sublessor shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding breach by Sublessee of any provision, term, covenant, agreement or condition of this Sublease other than the failure of Sublessee to pay the particular rental accepted, regardless of Sublessor’s knowledge of such preceding breach at the time of acceptance of such rent.|
At any time and from time to time, upon request in writing from Sublessor, Sublessee agrees to execute, acknowledge, and deliver to Sublessor a statement in writing within [NUMBER] days of request, certifying that this Sublease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if there have been modifications, stating the modifications), the commencement and termination dates, the Base Minimum Rent, the other charges payable hereunder the dates to which the same have been paid, and such other items as Sublessor may reasonably request. It is understood and agreed that any such statement may be relied upon by any mortgagee, beneficiary, or grantee of any security or other interest, or any assignee of any thereof, under any mortgage or deed of trust now or hereafter made covering any leasehold interest in the Leased Premises, and any prospective purchaser of the Leased Premises.
18. FORCE MAJEURE – UNAVOIDABLE DELAYS
Should the performance of any act required by this Sublease to be performed by either Sublessor or Sublessee be prevented or delayed by reason of an act of God, war, civil commotion, fire, flood, or other like casualty, strike, lockout, labor troubles, inability to secure materials, restrictive governmental laws or regulations, unusually severe weather, or any other cause, except financial inability, not the fault of the party required to perform the act, the time for performance of the act will be extended for a period equivalent to the period of delay and performance of the act during the period of delay will be excused; provided, however, that nothing contained in this section shall excuse the prompt payment of rent or other monies due by Sublessee as required by this Sublease or the performance of any act rendered difficult solely because of the financial condition of the party, Sublessor or Sublessee, required to perform the act.
Except as otherwise expressly provided by law, any and all notices or other communications required or permitted by this Sublease or by law to be served on or given to either party hereto by the other party hereto shall be in writing and shall be deemed duly served and given when personally delivered to the party, Sublessor or Sublessee, to whom it is directed or any managing employee of such party, or, in lieu of such personal service, 48 hours after deposit in the United States mail, certified or registered mail, with postage prepaid, or when transmitted by telecopy or facsimile addressed to the parties as set forth on the signature page hereof. Either party, Sublessor or Sublessee, may change the addresses herein contained for purposes of this Section by giving written notice of the change to the other party in the manner provided in this Section.
No amendment, change or modification of this Sublease shall be valid and binding unless such is contained in a written instrument executed by the parties hereto and which instrument expresses the specific intention of the parties to amend, change or modify this Sublease.
21. ACCORD AND SATISFACTION
No payment by Sublessee or receipt by Sublessor of a lesser amount than the monthly rent herein stipulated shall be deemed to be other than on account of the stipulated rent earliest in time, nor shall any endorsement or statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment as rent be deemed an accord and satisfaction and Sublessor may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Sublessor's right to recover the balance of such rent or pursue any other remedy provided in this Sublease or by law.
22. NO AGENCY CREATED
Nothing contained in this Sublease shall be deemed or construed by the parties hereto or by any third party to create the relationship of principal and agent, or of partnership, or of joint venture, or of any association whatsoever between Sublessor and Sublessee other than sublessor and sublessee.
23. BROKERAGE COMMISSION
Sublessee represents that neither it nor any of its affiliates has engaged the services of any real estate broker, finder, or any other person or entity in connection with this lease transaction and therefore should Sublessee be found to be in violation of such representation, Sublessee shall indemnify Sublessor against any and all claims for brokerage commissions or finders fees in connection with this transaction, and to indemnify, defend and hold Sublessor free and harmless from all liabilities arising from any such claim, including without limitation, attorneys’ fees in connection therewith.
24. SOLE AND ONLY AGREEMENT
This instrument constitutes the sole and only agreement between Sublessor and Sublessee respecting the Leased Premises or the leasing of the Leased Premises to Sublessee. Sublessor shall have no obligations to Sublessee, whether express or implied, other than those specifically set forth in this Sublease.
25. SEVERABILITY AND GOVERNING LAW
This Sublease shall be governed by the laws of the State of California. Whenever possible each provision of this Sublease shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Sublease shall be prohibited, void, invalid, or unenforceable under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition, invalidity, voidability, or enforceability without invalidating the remainder of such, or the remaining provisions of this Sublease.
26. CONSTRUCTION AND HEADINGS
All references herein in the singular shall be construed to include the plural, and the masculine, and the masculine to include the feminine or neuter gender, where applicable, and where the context shall require. Section headings are for convenience of reference only and shall not be construed as part of this Sublease nor shall they limit or define the meaning of any provision herein. The provisions of this Sublease shall be construed as to their fair meaning, and not strictly for or against Sublessor or Sublessee.
27. EFFECT OF EXECUTION
The submission of this Sublease for examination shall not effect any obligation on the part of the submitting or examining party and this Sublease shall become effective only upon the complete execution thereof by both Sublessor and Sublessee.
Sublessor shall have the full and unencumbered right to assign this Sublease. The covenants, agreements, restrictions, and limitations contained herein shall also be binding on Sublessee's permitted successors and assigns.
TIME OF ESSENCE
Time is expressly declared to be of the essence.
29. NO LIGHT, AIR OR VIEW EASEMENT
Any diminution or shutting off of light, air or view by any structure which may be erected on lands adjacent to the Leased Premises shall in no way affect this Sublease or impose any liability on Sublessor.
30. TRIPLE NET LEASE
It is the purpose and intent of Sublessor and Sublessee that this Sublease be deemed and construed to be a “triple net lease” so that Sublessor shall receive all rentals and other sums specified hereunder during the term of this Sublease, free from any and all charges, costs, assessments, expenses, deductions and/or set-offs of any kind or nature whatsoever, and Sublessor shall not be expected or required to pay any such charge, assessment or expense, or be under any obligation or liability hereunder, except as herein expressly set forth. All charges, costs, expenses and obligations of any nature relating to the repair, restoration, alteration, maintenance and operation of the Leased Premises shall be paid by Sublessee, except as otherwise herein expressly set forth, and Sublessor shall be indemnified and held harmless by Sublessee from and against such charges, costs, expenses and obligations.
Each individual executing this Sublease on behalf of Sublessee and the Sublessee (if Sublessee is a corporation or other entity) does hereby covenant and warrant that (i) Sublessee is a duly authorized and validly existing entity, (ii) Sublessee has and is qualified to do business in California, (iii) the entity has full right and authority to enter into this Sublease, and (iv) each person executing this Sublease on behalf of the entity was authorized to do so.
All obligations of Sublessee under this Sublease, including without limitation the obligations to pay Base Minimum Rent, shall survive the expiration or termination of this Sublease.
Sublessee hereby waives any rights it may have under the provisions of [LAW OR CODE], if applicable, and any similar statutes regarding repair of the Leased Premises or termination of this Sublease after destruction of all or any part of the Leased Premises.
Sublessee shall not record this Sublease or a short form memorandum hereof without the prior written consent of the Sublessor.
35. TRANSFER OF MASTER LEASE
In the event of any assignment or transfer of the Master Lease by Sublessor to any other party or entity, Sublessor shall be and is hereby entirely freed and relieved of all liability under any and all of its covenants and obligations contained in or derived from this Sublease arising out of any act, occurrence or omission occurring after the consummation of such assignment or transfer; and the assignee or such transferee shall be deemed, without any further agreement between parties or their successors in interest or between the parties and any such assignee or transferee, to have assumed and agreed to carry out any and all of the covenants and obligations of the Sublessor under this Sublease. Sublessee hereby agrees to attorn to any such assignee or trustee. Sublessee agrees to execute any and all documents deemed necessary or appropriate by Sublessor to evidence the foregoing.
36. SUBORDINATION, ATTORNMENT
Without the necessity of any additional document being executed by Sublessee for the purpose of effecting a subordination, this Sublease shall in all respects be subject and subordinate at all times to the lien of any mortgage or deed of trust which may now exist or hereafter be executed in any amount for which the Leased Premises or Sublessor's interest or estate is specified as security. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Sublessor shall have the right to subordinate or cause to be subordinated any lien or encumbrance to this Sublease. In the event that any mortgage or deed of trust is foreclosed or a conveyance in lieu of foreclosure is made for any reason, Sublessee shall, notwithstanding any subordination, attorn to and become the sublessee of the successor in interest to Sublessor, at the option of such successor in interest. Sublessee covenants and agrees to execute and deliver, upon demand by Sublessor and in the form requested by Sublessor, any additional documents evidencing the priority or subordination of this Sublease.
37. NO MERGER
The voluntary or other surrender of this Sublease by Sublessee, or a mutual cancellation hereof, shall not work a merger, and shall, at the option of Sublessor, terminate all or any existing subleases or subtenancies or may, at the option of Sublessor, operate as an assignment to Sublessor of any or all such subleases or subtenancies.
38. RIGHT OF SUBLESSOR TO PERFORM
All terms, covenants and conditions of this Sublease to be performed or observed by Sublessee shall be performed or observed by Sublessee at its sole cost and expense and without any reduction of rent of any nature payable hereunder. If Sublessee shall fail to pay any sum of money, other than rent required to be paid by it hereunder or shall fail to perform any other term or covenant hereunder on its part to be performed, Sublessor, without waiving or releasing Sublessee from any obligation of Sublessee hereunder, may, but shall not be obligated to, make any such payment or perform any such other term or covenant on Sublessee's part to be performed. All sums so paid by Sublessor and all necessary costs of such performance by Sublessor, together with interest thereon from the date of payment at the rate eighteen percent (18%) or the highest rate permissible by law, whichever is less, shall be paid, and Sublessee covenants to make such payment, to Sublessor on demand, and Sublessor shall have, in addition to any over right or remedy of Sublessor, the same rights and remedies in the event of nonpayment thereof by Sublessee as in the case of failure in the payment of rent hereunder.
39. MODIFICATION FOR LENDER
If, in connection with obtaining any type of financing, Sublessor’s lender shall request reasonable modifications to this Sublease as a condition to such financing, Sublessee shall not unreasonably withhold, delay or defer its consent thereto, provided such modifications do not materially adversely affect Sublessee's rights hereunder.
40. SUBLESSOR’S PERSONAL LIABILITY
The liability of Sublessor to Sublessee for any default by Sublessor under the terms of this Sublease shall be limited to the interest of Sublessor in the Leased Premises and Sublessee agrees to look solely to Sublessor's interest in the Leased Premises for the recovery of any judgment from Sublessor, it being intended that Sublessor shall not be personally liable for any judgment or deficiency.
41. BREACH BY LANDLORD
Sublessor shall not be deemed to be in breach in the performance of any obligation required to be performed by it hereunder unless and until it has failed to perform such obligation within 5 days after written notice by Sublessee to Sublessor specifying wherein Sublessor has failed to perform such obligation; provided, however, that if the nature of Sublessor's obligation is such that more than 5 days are required for its performance then Sublessor shall not be deemed to be in breech if it shall commence such performance within such 5 day period and thereafter diligently prosecute the same to completion. In any event, Sublessee must bring an action for breach of this Sublease within 2 years of Sublessor’s breach or be deemed to have waived the breach and not harmed thereby.
42. SURVIVAL OF INDEMNITIES
The obligations of the indemnifying party under each and every indemnification and hold harmless provision contained in this Sublease shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Sublease to and until the last to occur of (a) the last date permitted by law for bringing of any claim or action with respect to which indemnification may be claimed by the indemnified party against the indemnifying party under such provision or (b) the date on which any claim or action for which indemnification may be claimed under such provision is fully and finally resolved and, if applicable, any compromise thereof or judgment or award thereon is paid in full by the indemnifying party and the indemnified party is reimbursed by the indemnifying party for any amounts paid by the indemnified party in compromise thereof or upon a judgment or award thereon and in defense of such action or claim, including attorneys’ fees incurred.
43. OPTION TO RENEW
Subject to the receipt by lessee of an extension of the original lease agreement for a sufficient duration to include this renewal, at any time before the commencement of the last calendar month of the first term of this sublease agreement, sublessee is granted the option and privilege of extending and renewing the term of this sublease agreement for an additional [NUMBER]-year period at an annual rental to be agreed on or arbitrated as provided in this sublease agreement.
44. MEANING OF CONSENT
Whenever an act or provision contained in this Sublease is conditioned upon the consent or approval of Sublessor, this shall be interpreted to mean, unless otherwise specified to the contrary, that the Sublessor has the full unconditional right and sole discretion as to whether or not to give its consent, which may only be given in writing.
45. QUIET ENJOYMENT
If sublessee performs the terms of this sublease agreement, lessee will warrant and defend sublessee in the enjoyment and peaceful possession of the demised premises during the term of this sublease agreement without any interruption by lessee or lessor or either of them or any person rightfully claiming under either of them.
46. MASTER LEASE
Notwithstanding anything in this Sublease to the contrary, the rights of Sublessee shall be subject to the terms and conditions contained in the lease (“Master Lease”) between Sublessor and the owner of the Leased Premises (the “Master Lessor"), as it may be amended from time to time. Sublessee shall assume and perform and comply with the obligations of the lessee under the Master Lease to the same extent as if references to the Sublessor therein were references to Sublessee (all of which obligations are hereby incorporated herein), including, without limitation, the payment of any and all costs, expenses, charges, fees, taxes, payments or other monetary obligations (except for minimum rent and percentage rent) for which Sublessor is liable or responsible under the Master Lease, as such costs, expenses, charges, fees, taxes, payment or other monetary obligations come due. Sublessee shall not commit or permit to be committed on the Leased Premises any act or omission which shall violate any term or condition of the Master Lease. Notwithstanding anything in this Sublease to the contrary, the effectiveness of this Sublease shall be conditioned upon Sublessor obtaining the written consent of the Master Lessor (if such consent is required under the Master Lease), in form and substance satisfactory to Sublessor, within ten (10) days of the date hereof. If the Master Lease terminates for any reason, this Sublease shall terminate coincidentally therewith without any liability of Sublessor to Sublessee.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Agreement as of the date first above written.
