Tenant shall not voluntarily assign or encumber its interest in this Lease or in the Premises, or sublease all or any part of the Premises, or allow any other person or entity to occupy or use all or any part of the Premises, without first obtaining Landlord's written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Landlord may reasonably refuse an assignment if the proposed assignee is not financially qualified. Any assignment, encumbrance or sublease without Landlord's prior written consent shall be voidable and, at Landlord's election, shall constitute a default of this Lease.
B. If Tenant is a business entity (e.g., without limitation, partnership, company or corporation, etc.), Tenant may assign its interests in this Lease to any of its affiliated entities or successors in interest, subject to Landlord’s reasonable consent as expressed in Subparagraph A. Any conveyance of any interest in Tenant shall constitute an assignment of this Lease, which Landlord may reasonably refuse the assignment if the proposed assignor is not financially qualified.
C. Tenant agrees to pay Landlord’s reasonable attorneys’ fees up to $1,000- incurred by it in connection with Landlord’s attorneys’ review and preparation of any documentation regarding Tenant’s proposed sublease, assignment or transfer.
D. Any assignment consented to by Landlord shall be evidenced by a validly executed assignment and assumption of lease agreement, upon such terms and provisions as shall be reasonably agreed by the parties thereto.
2. Tenant's Liability. Notwithstanding any assignment or sublease, and notwithstanding the acceptance of Rent by Landlord from any such assignee or sublessee, Tenant shall continue to remain liable for the payment of Rent under this Lease and for the performance of all of the agreements, conditions, covenants and terms contained in this Lease.
4. Landlord's Transfer. Landlord shall have the right to sell, assign, mortgage or otherwise encumber or dispose of Landlord's interest in the Building, the Property, the Premises and this Lease subject to the right of first refusal granted to tenant hereunder in Article X, so long as Landlord’s successor in interest acknowledges to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Lease. In the event of any such disposition, Landlord shall have no further liability or obligation to Tenant under this Lease. Landlord’s obligation to return Tenant’s Security Deposit shall also cease upon any sale, assignment, mortgage, or other disposition of its interest in the Building, the Property, the Premises, or this Lease so long as the Landlord has transferred said Security Deposit to such purchaser, assignee, or mortgagee and such successor in interest acknowledges receipt of the Security Deposit and that it is subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease.
RIGHT OF LANDLORD TO PERFORM TENANT'S COVENANTS
1. Payment or Performance. Following tenant’s default and failure to cure within applicable cure period after receipt of written notice from Landlord, Landlord shall have the right, upon ten (10) days prior written notice to Tenant (or without notice in the case of emergency) to make any payment or perform any act required of Tenant under any provision in this Lease, and in exercising such right, to incur necessary and incidental costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. Nothing herein shall imply any obligation on the part of Landlord to make any payment or perform any act required of Tenant, and the exercise of the right to do so shall not constitute a release of any obligation, waiver of any default or obligation of Landlord to make any similar payment or perform any similar act in the future.
2. Reimbursement. All payments made, and all costs and expenses incurred in connection with Landlord's exercise of the right set forth in subparagraph 1 above, shall be reimbursed by Tenant within ten (10) days after receipt of a bill setting forth the amounts so expended, and such invoiced amount shall accrue interest after such ten (10) day period at the lesser of 18% per year or the maximum amount permitted by law. Any such payments, costs and expenses made or incurred by Landlord shall be treated as Additional Rent owed by Tenant.
NON-LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION
1. Non-Liability of Landlord. Neither Landlord, nor any joint venture partner, officer, director, agent, servant or employee of Landlord, nor any Superior Mortgagee (as defined hereinafter), shall be liable to Tenant for any loss, injury, or damage to Tenant or to any other person, or to its property, irrespective of the cause of such injury, damage or loss, unless caused by or resulting from the gross negligence of Landlord, in the operation or maintenance of the Premises or the Building. Tenant agrees that any Superior Mortgagee will not be liable to Tenant for injury, damage or loss caused by or resulting from the negligence of Landlord.

In case any action or proceeding is brought against Landlord or a Superior Mortgagee, Tenant, upon notice from Landlord or such Superior Mortgagee, shall resist and defend such action or proceeding at Tenant’s sole cost and expense.
3. Independent Obligations; Force Majeure. The obligations of Tenant hereunder shall not be affected, impaired or excused, nor shall Landlord have any liability whatsoever to Tenant, unless caused by Landlord's gross negligence, because; (a) Landlord is unable to fulfill, or is delayed in fulfilling, any of its obligations under this Lease by reason of strike, other labor trouble, governmental preemption of priorities or other controls or shortages of fuel, supplies, labor or materials, acts of God or any other cause, whether similar or dissimilar, beyond Landlord's reasonable control; or (b) of any failure or defect in the supply, quantity or character of electricity or water furnished to the Premises by reason of any requirement, act or omission of the public utility or others serving the Building with electric energy, steam, oil, gas or water, or for any other reason whether similar or dissimilar, beyond Landlord's reasonable control.

B. Tenant shall default in the performance of or compliance with any of the other terms or provisions of this Lease and such default shall continue for a period of ten (10) days after Landlord shall have delivered written notice of such default to Tenant, or, if such default cannot reasonably be cured within such initial ten (10) day period, if Tenant shall fail to commence curing the default within such initial ten (10) day period or fail to diligently prosecute the cure to completion within a commercially reasonable period of time, but in no event longer than thirty (30) days after Tenant’s original receipt of written notice from Landlord; or

E. If any creditor of Tenant shall file a petition in bankruptcy against Tenant or for reorganization of Tenant, under state or federal law, and if such petition is not discharged within ninety (90) days after the date on which it is filed; or
F. Tenant shall vacate or abandon the Premises, then, and in such event, or during the continuation of such abandonment, Landlord may, at its option, by written notice to Tenant, designate a date not less than ten (10) days from the giving of such notice on which this Lease shall end, and on such date designated by Landlord, this Lease and all rights of Tenant hereunder shall terminate. Such termination by Landlord shall not affect the remedies of Landlord provided in this Lease.
2. Surrender of Premises. Upon any termination of this Lease, Tenant shall surrender the Premises to Landlord, and Landlord, at any time after such termination, may, without further notice, re-enter and repossess the Premises without being liable to any prosecution or damages for such re-entrance or repossession by Landlord, and no person claiming through or under Tenant or by virtue of any statute or of any order of any court shall be entitled to possession of the Premises.

At any time or from time to time after any such termination of this Lease, Landlord may relet the Premises or any part thereof, in the name of Landlord or otherwise, for such term or terms and on such conditions as Landlord, in its sole discretion, may determine, and may collect and receive the rents therefore. Landlord shall not be responsible or liable for any failure to relet all or any portion of the Premises or for any failure to collect any rent due upon such reletting.
4. Survival of Obligations. No termination, pursuant to this Article XVI, shall relieve Tenant of its liability and obligations under this Lease, and such liability and obligations shall survive any such termination.
5. Holdover. Should Tenant hold over and remain in possession of the Premises at the expiration of any Term hereby created, Tenant shall, by virtue of this Section, become a tenant-at-sufferance. Said tenancy shall be subject to all the conditions and covenants of this Lease as though the same had been a tenancy-at- sufferance instead of a tenancy as provided in this Lease, and Tenant shall give to Landlord at least thirty (30) days prior written notice of any intention to remove from the Premises, and shall be entitled to ten (10) days prior notice of any intention of Landlord to remove Tenant from the Premises in the event Landlord desires possession of the Premises; provided, however, that said tenant-at-sufferance shall not be entitled to ten (10) days notice in the event the said Rent is not paid in advance without demand, the said ten (10) days written notice being hereby expressly waived
ARTICLE XVI REMEDIES
1. Remedies. Upon the occurrence of any event of default, Landlord and Tenant shall be entitled to all remedies available to it under Florida law, including, but not limited to, the filing of suit for the recovery of all monetary damages sustained by Landlord or Tenant as a result thereof. In addition to its statutory and common law remedies in the event of a default by Tenant, Landlord shall also be entitled, at its option, to exercise any one or more of the following remedies all of which may only be exercise after at least 10 days written notice to Tenant and after expiration of all applicable cure periods:
A. Termination. Landlord shall be entitled to declare this Lease terminated and the Lease Term ended and/or shall have the immediate right of re-entry and may remove all persons and property from the Premises in accordance with Florida law and such property may be removed and stored in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of, and for the account of Tenant, without evidence of notice and
without being deemed guilty of trespass or becoming liable for any loss or damage which may be occasioned thereby so long as all actions taken by Landlord were in accordance with Florida law.
B. Right to Re-Let. Landlord may elect to re-enter the Premises, either by taking possession pursuant to legal proceedings or otherwise, and may either terminate this Lease or it may from time to time, without terminating this Lease, make such alterations and repairs as may be necessary in order to re-let the Premises, and re-let the Premises or any part of the Premises for such term or terms (which may be for a term extending beyond the term of this Lease) and at such rental or rentals and upon such other terms and conditions as Landlord in its sole discretion may deem advisable. Upon each such re-letting all rentals and other sums received by Landlord from such re-letting shall be applied, first, to the payment of any indebtedness other than Rent due pursuant to this Lease from Tenant to Landlord; second, to the payment of any costs and expenses of such re-letting, including reasonable brokerage fees and attorneys’ fees and of costs of such alterations and repairs and costs of moving other tenants in the Building in order to re-let the Premises, such as repairs and alterations to other portions of the Building or reduced rental from other tenants; third, to the payment of Rent and other charges due and unpaid under this Lease; and the residue, if any, shall be held by Landlord and applied in payment of future Rent as the same may become due and payable hereunder. If such rentals and other sums received from such re-letting during any month be less than that to be paid during that month by Tenant hereunder, Tenant shall pay such deficiency to Landlord. Such deficiency shall be calculated and paid monthly. Tenant shall in no event be entitled to any rent collected or payable upon any re-letting, whether or not such rent shall exceed the Rent reserved in this Lease. No such re-entry or taking possession of the Premises by Landlord shall be construed as an election on its part to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention be given to Tenant or unless the termination thereof be decreed by a court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any such re-letting without termination, Landlord may at any time hereafter elect to terminate this Lease for such previous breach. Should Landlord at any time terminate this Lease for any breach, in addition to any other remedies it may have, it may recover from Tenant all damages it may incur by reason of such breach, including the cost of recovering the Premises and reasonable attorney’s fees, which amount shall be immediately due and payable from Tenant to Landlord.
C. Acceleration. Landlord may, without notice or demand, accelerate and declare all Rent, including Additional Rent, to become immediately due and payable and bring suit for the collection of the same and for damages, as hereinafter described, without entering into possession of the Premises or terminating this Lease. The amount of expenses (Additional Rent) and other sums to become due under this Lease shall be those amounts payable during the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding default, multiplied by the number of years, or a portion thereof, remaining in the Term at the date of default.
D. Additional Charges. In addition to the amounts recoverable by Landlord from Tenant as described above, Landlord may, upon a default by Tenant hereunder, recover damages from Tenant for brokerage fees and attorneys’ fees and costs, plus such other amounts in addition to or in lieu of any other damages as may be permitted by the laws of the State of Florida, plus interest thereon at the maximum rate permitted by law.
E. Waiver of Notice. Landlord may foreclose on the lien described in Article XI.2 of this Lease and enter the Premises and take possession of any and all goods, equipment, fixtures, furniture and other personal property of Tenant situated on the Premises without liability for trespass or conversion, and sell the same at public or private sale, with or without having such property at the sale, at which Landlord or its assigns may purchase and apply the proceeds thereof, less any and all expenses connected with the taking of possession and sale of the property, as a credit against any sums due by Tenant to Landlord so long as same was conducted in accordance with Florida law.
F. Attorneys' Fees. With respect to any default or failure to perform on the part of Tenant, or any other dispute between Tenant and Landlord arising out of this Lease, Landlord shall be entitled to recover all costs incurred, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, which shall include, but not be limited to, such fees incurred prior to the institution of litigation or in litigation, including trial and appellate review, and in arbitration, bankruptcy or other administrative or judicial proceedings, and such costs, expenses and attorneys’ fees incurred by or on behalf of Landlord shall constitute Rent under this Lease and shall be paid upon written
demand for the same. In addition, from time to time, Tenant will pay, on demand, all expenses (including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and expenses of legal counsel for Landlord) relating to any request or demand made, or notice given by Tenant pursuant to the terms of this Lease, including, without limitation, under Articles VII, XIII, XX and XXIV. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding in court or mutually agreed upon arbitration proceeding to enforce the terms of this Lease is entitled to receive its reasonable attorneys' fees and other reasonable costs and expenses from the non-prevailing party.
G. Landlord’s Rights. The rights and remedies granted within this Article are distinct, separate and cumulative remedies, and the exercise of any of them will not be deemed to exclude the Landlord’s right to exercise any or all of the other rights afforded Landlord. All charges payable by Tenant under the terms of this Lease will be deemed rent for the purpose of Landlord exercising its remedies.
H. No Waiver. No waiver of any covenant or condition or of the breach of any covenant or condition of this Lease will be taken to constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach of such covenant or condition nor to justify or authorize the nonobservance on any other occasion of the same or of any other covenant or condition of this Lease. In addition, acceptance of Rent by Landlord at any time when Tenant is in default under any covenant or condition of this Lease shall not be construed as a waiver of such default or of Landlord’s right to terminate the Lease on account of such default, nor will any waiver or indulgence granted by Landlord to Tenant be taken as an estoppel against Landlord, it being expressly understood that if at any time Tenant should be in default under this Lease, an acceptance by Landlord of Rent during the continuance of such default or the failure on the part of Landlord to promptly avail itself of such other rights or remedies as Landlord may have will not be construed as a waiver of such default and under such circumstances regardless of such acceptance of Rent, Landlord may terminate the Lease at any time should such default continue.
I. Tenant's Remedies. In the event of a Landlord default under this Lease, Tenant's remedies shall include consequential damages, punitive damages and Tenant shall have no right to terminate this Lease except as otherwise stated herein. Subject to the previous sentence, Tenant shall have all rights and remedies under applicable law.
J. Landlord’s Remedies. In the event of a Tenant’s default under this Lease, Landlord’s remedies shall include consequential damages, punitive damages and Landlord shall have no right to terminate this Lease except as otherwise stated herein. Subject to the previous sentence, Landlord shall have all rights and remedies under applicable law.
ARTICLE XVII EMINENT DOMAIN
1. Taking. If any part of the Property should be permanently or temporarily taken, condemned or transferred by agreement in lieu of condemnation for any public or quasi-public use or purpose by any competent authority, whether or not the Lease is terminated, the entire compensation award for such taking, both leasehold and reversion, will be the property of Landlord without any deduction from such award for any present or future estate of Tenant. In addition, Tenant will execute all documents required to evidence such result.
2. Effect on Lease. If the entire Premises should be permanently taken, condemned or transferred as contemplated in subparagraph 1 above, the Lease will terminate as of the time possession of the Premises vests in the condemning authority. In addition, if a portion of the Premises should be permanently taken, condemned or transferred, Landlord or tenant may elect to terminate the Lease or, at its own expense, to repair and restore the portion not affected by the taking, in which latter event the Rent will be reduced in proportion to the area taken, effective at the time possession of the Premises vests in the condemning authority. If all or a portion of the Premises should be temporarily taken, condemned or transferred, Rent will be abated during the period of such temporary taking by the amount Landlord receives from the condemning authority to compensate it for the use of the Premises.
3. Common Area Taking. If all or a portion of the Common Area should be permanently or temporarily taken, condemned or transferred, whether or not the Lease is terminated, the entire compensation for such taking, both leasehold and reversion, will be the property of Landlord without any deduction for any
present or future estate of Tenant and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord all its right, title and interest to any such award. Tenant will execute all documents required to evidence such result. In the event any portion of the Common Area should be taken to such an extent that Landlord, in its sole discretion, should elect to discontinue operation of the Property, Landlord may terminate the Lease.
ARTICLE XVIII QUIET ENJOYMENT
Landlord agrees that Tenant, upon paying all Rent and all other charges this Lease provides for and observing and keeping the covenants, agreements, terms and conditions of this Lease and the rules and regulations of Landlord affecting the Premises on its part to be performed, shall lawfully and quietly hold, occupy and enjoy the Premises during the Lease Term, expressly subject to the terms, limitations and conditions contained in this Lease.
ARTICLE XIX SUBORDINATION AND ATTORNMENT
1. Subordination. To ensure that any current or future Superior Mortgagee has priority over Tenant and the lien of this Lease, this Lease is subordinate to any Superior Mortgage or any other hypothecation for security now or hereafter placed upon the real property of which the Premises are a part and to any and all advances made on the security thereof and to all renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions thereof. This subordination is self-operative, and no further instrument of subordination will be required for any purpose. If any mortgagee or ground lessor should elect to have the Lease prior to the lien of its mortgage or ground lease, and should give written notice thereof to Tenant, the Lease will be deemed prior to such mortgage or ground lease, whether the Lease is dated prior or subsequent to the date of said mortgage or ground lease. Tenant agrees to execute any reasonable documents required to evidence such subordination or to make the Lease prior to the lien of any mortgage or ground lease, as the case may be, provided, however, that should any Superior Mortgagee foreclose upon the property including the Premises, and Tenant attorn to it or subsequent purchaser, the lender or subsequent purchase shall honor the terms of the Lease.
2. Attornment. Upon request of Landlord, Tenant will, in the event any proceedings are brought for the foreclosure of, or in the event of exercise of the power of sale under any mortgage made by Landlord covering the Premises, attorn to the purchaser (i.e. recognize as landlord) upon any such foreclosure or sale and recognize such purchaser as the Landlord under the Lease.
3. Cooperation. If, in connection with obtaining financing for the real property of which the Premises are a part, a banking, insurance or other recognized institutional lender should request reasonable modifications in the Lease as a condition to such financing, Tenant will not unreasonably withhold, delay or defer its consent to such modification, provided that such modifications do not increase the financial or other obligations of Tenant under this Lease, or adversely affect the leasehold interest hereby created or Tenant's use and enjoyment of the Premises.
ARTICLE XX LANDLORD'S RIGHT OF ACCESS
1. Access for Maintenance, Repair, Showings and Inspection. Landlord and its agents will have the right to enter upon the Premises at reasonable times upon at least 24 hours- notice for the purposes of inspecting the same, showing the same to prospective purchasers, lenders, or lessees, and making such alterations, repairs, improvements or additions to the Premises or to the Building as Landlord may deem reasonably necessary and desirable. In Landlord's sole discretion, Landlord may install, maintain and operate pipes, ducts and conduits in and through the Premises. Landlord may at any time place on or about the Premises any ordinary "For Sale" signs and the Landlord may at any time during the last 180 days of the Lease Term place on or about the Premises any ordinary "For Lease" signs and exhibit the Premises to prospective Tenants upon reasonable notice to Tenant, all without rebate of rent or liability to Tenant.
2. Landlord's Alterations and Improvements. If, at any time, any windows of the Premises are temporarily darkened or obstructed by reason of any repairs, improvements, maintenance and/or cleaning in or about the Building, or if any part of the Building, other than the Premises, is temporarily or permanently closed or inoperable, the same shall be without liability to Landlord and without any reduction or diminution of Tenant's obligations under this Lease. Landlord reserves the right to make such changes, alterations, additions and improvements in or to the Property and the improvements, fixtures and equipment located on the Property, as Landlord shall deem reasonably necessary or desirable, so long as any work is done at such times and in such manner as to be least disruptive to Tenant, and no such alterations or changes shall be deemed a breach of Landlord's covenant of quiet enjoyment or a constructive eviction.
ARTICLE XXI SIGNS AND OBSTRUCTION
1. Signs. Landlord shall provide signage on the centrally located directory within the Building and, at Tenant’s sole expense, at Tenant's entrance, and all such signage shall be subject to Landlord's reasonable approval and is subject to all appropriate governmental approvals and any applicable Laws.

"Notice Address" means Landlord's Notice Address or Tenant's Notice Address, individually and as the context may require.
2. Accounts Receivable Emails. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in subparagraph 1 of this Article XXIII, in the event a statement shall need to be sent from Landlord’s account receivable department to Tenant, Landlord may email such statement to Tenant’s Email Address.

Section 1802 et. seq., or the Florida Air and Water Pollution Control Act, Florida Statutes 403.011 et. seq.).
3. Mold Exclusion. Tenant hereby acknowledges that Landlord has advised Tenant that it is possible for mold/mildew/fungi/microbe-related forms to grow and affect the Premises and the property within the Premises. Tenant agrees that Landlord shall not have any liability or responsibility whatsoever for any damage, loss, claim or court expense arising out of or resulting from mold/mildew/fungi/microbe-related forms in the Premises. Accordingly, Tenant hereby releases Landlord and its partners, agents, employees, successors and assigns, from and against any and all claims arising out of or relating to mold/mildew/fungi/microbe-related forms or any similar situation with respect to the Premises. In the event it is discovered that mold is present at the Premises then: Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall promptly cause the mold condition to be remediated at Tenant’s sole expense unless the mold resulted from Landlord’s failure to comply with its maintenance obligations under this Lease, in which case the remediation of the mold condition shall be undertaken by Landlord at its cost and expense.

In addition, the following materials, if located in properties constructed prior to 1981, must, in accordance with the OSHA Regulations, be treated as PACM; any thermal system insulation and surfacing material that is sprayed on, troweled on, or applied in some other manner, as well as any resilient flooring material installed in 1980 or earlier.
