If the Premises and/or Personal Property or any part thereof, suffers any damages prior to Closing from fire or other casualty, Seller shall promptly notify Purchaser of such damage. If such damage is not material and will not take more than two (2) months to repair from the date of the casualty, then Seller shall repair such damage, in which event the time for Closing shall be extended by the length of time reasonably necessary for Seller to complete such repairs. If such damage is material, then Purchaser shall have the option to: (a) terminate this Agreement whereupon the Earnest Money shall be returned to Purchaser, other man $100.00 thereof, which shall be retained by Seller as independent consideration for its execution of this Agreement, in which event the parties shall have no further rights and liabilities hereunder except with respect to those matters specifically surviving termination or Closing; or (b) elect to proceed to Closing whereupon Purchaser shall have the option to either (i) require Seller to repair such damage, in which event the time for Closing shall be extended by the length of time reasonably necessary for Seller to complete such repairs; or (ii) without Seller repairing such damage, consummate the Closing, in which latter event the proceeds of all insurance covering such damage shall be assigned by Seller to Purchaser at Closing and the Purchase Price shall be reduced by the amount of any deductible and co-insurance and any amounts retained by Seller’s lender.

The provisions of this
Section 10.2 shall control, and be effective notwithstanding, the provisions of the Uniform Vendor and Purchaser Risk Act set forth in Section 5.007 of the Texas Property Code.

Seller shall have until the earlier of the Closing Date or the date that is five (5) business days after receipt of Purchaser’s notice of default to cure the specified default. If Seller does not cure such default within said period, and such default is not waived in writing by Purchaser, then Purchaser, at its option, may either, as its sole and exclusive remedy, (a) terminate this Agreement and be entitled to the immediate return of the Earnest Money, plus reimbursement of Purchaser’s out of pocket expenses not to exceed one hundred thousand and No/100 Dollars ($100,000), (b) enforce specific performance of this Agreement or (c) waive such default by Seller and proceed to Closing.

Purchaser shall have until the earlier of the Closing Date or the date that is five (5) business days after receipt of Seller’s notice of default to cure the specified default. If Purchaser does not cure such default within said period, and such default is not waived in writing by Seller, then Seller shall be entitled to retain the Earnest Money, as liquidated damages (and not as a penalty), as Seller’s sole remedy and relief. Seller and Purchaser have made these provisions for liquidated damages as it would be difficult to calculate on the date hereof the amount of actual damages for such breach and agree that these sums represent reasonable compensation to Seller for such breach.
All notices, demands and requests which may be given or which are required to be given by either party to the other, and any exercise of a right of termination provided by this Agreement, shall be in writing and shall be deemed received (a) when personally delivered to the party to receive such notice or (b) whether actually received or not, one (1) business day after deposit with a reputable overnight delivery service such as FedEx or UPS, with delivery costs prepaid, addressed as follows:
