Demise, Lease Term and Landlords Services
3.1 Demise and Lease Term. Subject to the terms, conditions, covenants and agreements contained in this Lease, and in consideration of the keeping, observance and performance by Tenant of such terms, conditions, covenants and agreements and the payment by Tenant of the Rent herein reserved, Landlord does hereby demise and lease the Premises to Tenant, and Tenant does hereby accept such demise and lease, to have and to hold for the Lease Term.
3.2 Covenant of Quiet Enjoyment. Landlord covenants that, provided Tenant is not in default under this Lease, Tenant will have quiet and peaceable possession of the Premises and such possession will not be disturbed, subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease.
Rent and Other Amounts Payable
4.1 Monthly Installments. All payments of Basic Rent will be made monthly, without notice and without any offset, deduction or abatement whatsoever, in advance on the first (1st) day of each calendar month. Basic Rent for any partial month during the Lease Term will be prorated on a per diem basis based on the actual number of days in the month.
4.2 Basic Rent. Commencing on the Commencement Date and thereafter during the Lease Term, Tenant covenants to pay to Landlord, Basic Rent in the monthly installment amounts specified in Section 1.1(n). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, and provided that Tenant faithfully performs all of the terms and conditions of this Lease and is not in default hereunder, Landlord hereby agrees to abate Tenants obligation to pay the monthly installments of Basic Rent (collectively, the Abated Rent) otherwise payable for the Premises during the first three (3) months of the Lease Term (the Abatement Period). Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, if as of the first (1st) day of such applicable month scheduled for abatement, Tenant is in monetary or material non-monetary default under this Lease beyond the applicable notice and cure period, the monthly Basic Rent abatement for such applicable month shall be suspended until such default is cured by Tenant (with the amount of such suspended Abated Rent to be credited toward the next monthly installment of Basic Rent due under this Lease for the first (1st) month immediately following such cure that Tenant is not in monetary or material non-monetary default under this Lease). During the Abatement Period, Tenant shall remain responsible for the payment of all of its other monetary obligations under this Lease.
4.3 Additional Rent. Tenant will pay to Landlord, in accordance with Section 4.4 below, as additional rent, without any offset, deduction or abatement whatsoever, the Real Property Taxes. Tenant may, however, pay such Real Property Taxes directly to the taxing authority pursuant to section 5.1 below, in which case there shall not be a reimbursement to Landlord.
4.4 Net-Net-Net Lease, Reimbursement Obligations, and Estimated Additional Rent. Except as otherwise specifically set forth herein, Landlord and Tenant acknowledge that it is their intent and agreement that this Lease be a TRIPLE NET lease and that as such, the provisions contained in this Lease are intended to pass on to Tenant or reimburse Landlord for all costs and expenses associated with this Lease and the Premises, and Tenants operation therefrom. Landlord shall only be responsible for those costs and expenses that this Lease expressly provides are Landlords responsibility. Landlords management fees, costs, and expenses are its own responsibility. Landlord shall not be responsible for any other costs or expenses associated with this Lease or the Premises, including but not limited to those that this Lease expressly provides are Tenants responsibility. Tenant shall be notified of any such costs and expenses in advance and shall have the right to directly contract for and pay the same. Tenant shall be responsible for reimbursing Landlord within thirty (30) days after demand for any
costs and expenses associated with this Lease and the Premises billed to and paid for by Landlord which Tenant fails to pay directly, including, without limitation, insurance carried by Landlord pursuant to Section 6.4 below, as an item of Additional Rent. Additional Rent is expected to be limited to Real Property Taxes, which Tenant may pay directly pursuant to section 5.1 below. Landlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, to reasonably estimate Additional Rent for each Lease Year. Upon Landlords notice to Tenant of such estimated amount, including underlying calculation and documentation of same, Tenant shall pay, on the first day of each month during that Lease Year, an amount (the Estimated Additional Rent) equal to the estimate of Additional Rent divided by twelve (12) (or the fractional portion of the Lease Year remaining at the time Landlord delivers its notice of the estimated amounts due from Tenant for that Lease Year). If the aggregate amount of Estimated Additional Rent actually paid by Tenant during a given Lease Year exceeds Tenants actual liability for such Lease Year, the excess shall be credited against the Estimated Additional Rent next due from Tenant during the immediately subsequent Operating Year, except that in the event that such excess is paid by Tenant during the final Lease Year, then upon the expiration of the Lease Term, Landlord shall pay Tenant the then-applicable excess promptly after determination thereof.
4.5 Security Deposit. Upon execution of this Lease, Tenant will deposit with Landlord the amount specified as a security deposit in Section 1.1(r) (Security Deposit). The Security Deposit will be retained by Landlord and may be applied by Landlord, to the extent necessary, to pay and cover any loss, cost, damage or expense, including reasonable legal fees sustained by Landlord by reason of the failure of Tenant to comply with any term or condition of this Lease. To the extent not necessary to cover such loss, cost, damage or expense, the Security Deposit will be returned to Tenant within sixty (60) days after expiration of the Lease Term. THE SECURITY DEPOSIT WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED AS AN ADVANCE PAYMENT OF RENT or as a measure of the loss, cost, damage or expense which is or may be sustained by Landlord by reason of Tenants default. If any portion of the Security Deposit is applied by Landlord to pay any such loss, cost, damage or expense, Tenant will, within five (5) days after demand, deposit with Landlord an amount necessary to replenish the Security Deposit to its original amount. Landlord may commingle the Security Deposit with Landlords own funds, and Landlord will not be obligated to pay interest to Tenant on the Security Deposit. If Landlord transfers Landlords interest in the Premises, Landlord shall deliver the Security Deposit to the transferee of Landlords interest and Landlord will thereupon be discharged from any further liability to Tenant with respect to such Security Deposit. If Tenant transfers Tenants interest in the Premises, Landlord may return the Security Deposit to Tenants successor in interest and Landlord will thereupon be discharged from any further liability to Tenant.
5.1 Obligation for Payment. Tenant will pay all taxes (collectively the Taxes), including without limitation all Real Property Taxes and personal property tax, assessment, license fee, license tax, levy, charge, penalty or similar imposition assessed, levied, confirmed, or imposed during the Lease Term, whether or not now customary or within the contemplation of Landlord and Tenant: (i) upon the Premises; (ii) upon, measured by, or reasonably attributable to the cost or value of Tenants Equipment, or by the cost or value of any leasehold improvements made in or to the Premises by or for Tenant, regardless of whether title to the improvements is in Tenant or Landlord; (iii) upon or measured by the Basic Rent, including without limitation any gross receipts tax or excise tax levied by the federal government or any other governmental body with respect to the receipt of Basic Rent (but not including any income tax); (iv) upon or with respect to the possession, leasing, operation, management, maintenance, alteration, repair, use, or occupancy by Tenant of the Premises or any portion of the Premises; (v) upon this transaction or any document to which Tenant is a party creating or transferring an interest or an estate in the Premises from Landlord to Tenant; (vi) upon all personal property, furniture, fixtures, and equipment located at the Premises, and all replacements, improvements, or additions to them, whether owned by Landlord or Tenant; and (vii) based in whole or in part on a Basic Rent, whether made in addition to or in substitution for any other tax. Tenant shall pay the applicable taxing authority(ies) directly, provided that Landlord may, at its option, upon reasonable written notice delivered to Tenant, elect to be billed and pay the taxes and seek reimbursement from Tenant as set forth herein. Tenant shall furnish to Landlord and Fee Mortgagee with documentation in a form reasonably acceptable to Landlord showing payment in full of all Real Estate Taxes and any other Taxes which could create a lien against the Premises no later than fifteen (15) days prior to the date on which such Taxes, if not paid, will become delinquent.
5.2 Taxes for Period Other Than Lease Term. Any Tax, including Taxes that have been converted into installment payments, relating to a fiscal period of the taxing authority, a part of which period is included within the Lease Term and a part of which is included in a period of time prior to the Commencement Date or after the end of the Term, whether or not such Tax or installments are assessed, levied, confirmed, imposed upon or in respect of, or become a lien upon the Premises, or become payable, during the term, will be adjusted between Landlord and Tenant as of the Commencement Date or end of the Lease Term, so that Tenant will pay that portion of the Tax or installment which the part of the fiscal period included in the Lease Term bears to the fiscal period, and Landlord will pay the remainder.
5.3 Other Impositions. Tenant will not be obligated to pay local, state, or federal net income taxes assessed against Landlord; local, state, or federal capital levy of Landlord; or sales, excise, franchise, gift, estate, succession, inheritance, or transfer taxes of Landlord.
5.4 Right to Contest Taxes. Tenant will have the right to contest the amount or validity, in whole or in part, of any tax by appropriate proceedings diligently conducted in good faith, only after paying the tax or posting such security as Landlord may reasonably require in order to protect the Premises against loss or forfeiture. Upon the termination of those proceedings, Tenant will pay the amount of the tax or part of the tax as finally determined, the payment of which may have been deferred during the prosecution of the proceedings, together with any costs, fees, interest, penalties, or other related liabilities. Landlord will not be required to join in any contest or proceedings unless the provisions of any law or regulations then in effect require that the proceedings be brought by or in the name of Landlord. In that event, Landlord will join in the proceedings or permit them to be brought in its name; however, Landlord will not be subjected to any liability for the payment of any costs or expenses in connection with any contest or proceedings, and Tenant will indemnify the Landlord Parties against and save the Landlord Parties harmless from any of those costs and expenses.

(d) Builders Risk Insurance any time Tenant engages or causes to be engaged any contractor to perform work in or on the Premises (which shall be done only in accordance with the provisions of this Lease). Tenant shall require such contractor to carry and maintain, at no expense to Landlord, non-deductible commercial general liability insurance, and Tenant shall maintain in full force and effect a builders completed value risk policy (a Builders Risk Policy) in a nonreporting form, with no coinsurance requirement, insuring against all Special Form risk of physical loss or damage to the Premises, including, but not limited to, contractors liability coverage, completed operations coverage, broad form property damage endorsement and contractors protection liability coverage, risk of loss from fire and other hazards, collapse, transit coverage, vandalism, malicious mischief, theft, earthquake (if the Premises is in earthquake zone 1 or 2) and sinkholes (if usually recommended in the area of the Premises).

(h) Any other form or forms or amounts of insurance or any changes or endorsements to the insurance required herein as may be required by Fee Mortgagee.
6.2 Additional Insureds. Coverage shall be placed with insurance carriers with an A-XII AM Best Rating or better; will name Landlord, Landlords property manager and Fee Mortgagee as identified to Tenant by Landlord as additional insured parties (collectively Additional Insured Parties and individually Additional Insured Party), as their interests may appear; and will provide that the insurance coverage will not be cancelled or altered except upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to Landlord, Landlords property manager, and Fee Mortgagee. Tenant will obtain and file with Landlord certificates of insurance evidencing the insurance coverage required above and will deliver such certificates to Landlord on or before the Commencement Date and annually thereafter.
6.3 No Limitation of Liability. In no event shall the limits of the foregoing insurance policies be considered to limit the liability of Tenant under this Lease. The minimum limits of insurance set forth in Section 6.1 shall not be construed to limit the coverage available to any of the Additional Insured Parties to an amount that is less than the full policy limit(s) of all applicable policies actually carried by Tenant. Notwithstanding any limits of liability set forth in Section 6.1 or shown on any certificate or other evidence of insurance, Landlord shall be named and entitled to status as an Additional Insured Party on all liability insurance maintained by Tenant.
6.4 Procurement by Landlord. If Tenant does not obtain the insurance policies as required by this Lease or keep the same in force throughout the Lease Term, Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, obtain the required insurance, or such lesser insurance coverage as Landlord may elect, and pay the premium therefor. If Landlord does so, Tenant shall repay to Landlord, as Additional Rent, the amount of the premium so paid within ten (10) days after demand plus an administrative fee of 15% of the premium. In addition, Landlord may recover from Tenant, and Tenant agrees to pay, as Additional Rent, any and all reasonable expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys fee) and damages that Landlord may sustain by reason of the failure of Tenant to obtain and maintain insurance as required in this Lease.
6.5 Waiver of Subrogation. Except as otherwise provided in the last sentence of this Section 6.5, Landlord and Tenant each hereby releases the other from any and all liability for any loss of or damage or injury to property occurring in, on or about the Premises by reason of fire or other casualty that is or could be insured against under a so-called special perils form property insurance policy or under a so-called contents insurance policy, regardless of cause, including, without limitation, the negligence of other party. Each party further agrees that such insurance carried by either of them shall contain a clause whereby the insurance company permits (or does not preclude) the foregoing release. Because the provisions of this Section 6.5 are intended to preclude the assignment of any claim described herein by way of subrogation or otherwise to an insurance company or any other person, each party to this Lease shall give to each insurance company that has issued to such party one or more policies of property insurance notice of the terms of the mutual releases contained in this Section 6.5 and each party shall have such insurance policies properly endorsed, if necessary, to prevent the invalidation of such insurance by reason of the provisions of this Section 6.5. The foregoing release by Landlord in favor of Tenant shall not apply, and shall be void and of no force or effect, if Landlords insurance coverage is denied, invalidated or nullified by reason of any act or failure to act of Tenant, its agents, employees, invitees or contractors.
6.6 Cooperation in the Event of Loss. Landlord and Tenant will cooperate with each other in the collection of any insurance proceeds which may be payable in the event of any loss, including the execution and delivery of any proof of loss or other actions required to effect recovery.
6.7 Policies of Insurance. Upon Landlords request, Tenant and Tenants insurance company shall provide full copies of all policies, endorsements and exclusions thereto, as required hereunder, and Landlord shall be under no obligation to accept Certificates of Insurance in lieu thereof.

(b) Tenant will arrange with a reputable trash collection company for the removal and disposition of all garbage, trash, rubbish and other refuse from the Premises. Tenant will directly pay for such services, and the inability of Tenant to obtain or to continue to receive such services for any reason whatsoever will not in any way be construed as a partial or constructive eviction or cause an abatement of rent or relieve Tenant of any of its obligations under this Lease or result in any liability of Landlord to Tenant.
(c) Tenant will operate the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems in a proper manner and in any event, so as to maintain under all conditions a temperature adequate to prevent the freezing of pipes or other damage to the Premises.
7.2 Tenants Obligation to Repair and Maintain. Tenant acknowledges that it has received the Premises in good order and repair.

areas, curbs and gutters and fences).

No act or further agreement by Tenant shall be necessary to establish the subordination of this Lease to any such Fee Mortgage, which subordination is self-executing, but Tenant covenants and agrees, upon request of Landlord, to execute such documents as may be necessary or appropriate to confirm and establish this Lease as subordinate to any Fee Mortgage in accordance with the foregoing provisions (including, without limitation, such Fee Mortgagees form of estoppel, subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement in substance materially consistent with the form attached hereto as Exhibit C and by this reference incorporated herein). Alternatively, Tenant covenants and agrees that, at the option of any Fee Mortgagee, Tenant shall execute documents as may be necessary to establish this Lease and Tenants interest in the Premises as superior to any such Fee Mortgage within ten (10) days after Tenants receipt thereof. If Tenant fails to respond to such request to execute any documents required to be executed by Tenant under the provisions hereof, Tenant shall be deemed to have agreed to and be bound by the covenants, terms and conditions provided in such documents.

The Landlord shall be notified of plans to remove said furniture, equipment, and personal property and may be physically present upon the actual removal thereof. Landlord does hereby waive any right to retain or gain possession of any of such equipment or property on the premises during the term of the lease and until said property shall become the property of Lessee without liens.

Any prohibited Transfer by Tenant will be void and will constitute a default under this Lease. Landlord shall have thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of Tenants request in which to determine whether or not Landlords consent shall be granted. If Landlord consents to any Transfer by Tenant, Tenant will not be relieved of its obligations under this Lease and Tenant will remain liable, jointly and severally and as a principal, and not as a guarantor or surety, under this Lease, to the same extent as though no Transfer by Tenant had been made, unless otherwise specifically provided in Landlords consent thereto. The acceptance of rent by Landlord from any person other than Tenant will not be deemed to be a waiver by Landlord of the provisions of this Section 9.6 or of any other provision of this Lease. Any consent by Landlord to Transfer by Tenant will not be deemed a consent to any subsequent Transfer by Tenant.
(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 9.6(a), Tenant may sublet any part or all of the Premises with the prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed, of both Fee Mortgagee and Landlord (a Permitted Sublease). If Landlord consents to any Permitted Sublease, Tenant will not be relieved of its obligations under this Lease and Tenant will remain liable, jointly and severally and as a principal, and not as a guarantor or surety, under this Lease, to the same extent as though no Permitted Sublease had been made. The acceptance of rent by Landlord from any person other than Tenant will not be deemed to be a waiver by Landlord of the provisions of this Section 9.6(b) or of any other provision of this Lease. Any consent by Landlord to Permitted Sublease will not be deemed a consent to any subsequent Permitted Sublease. Any subtenant who occupies the Premises pursuant to a Permitted Sublease shall be bound by all the provisions of this Lease specifically including, without limitation, Section 15.24 below. A Permitted Sublease shall not constitute a Transfer by Tenant.
(c) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 9.6(a), except for a change of fifty percent (50%) or more of ownership in Tenant, Landlord will, at Landlords option, have the right, in lieu of consenting to a Transfer by Tenant, to terminate this Lease as to the portion of the Premises that is subject to the proposed Transfer by Tenant and, at Landlords option, to enter into a new lease with the proposed transferee and receive directly from the proposed transferee the consideration agreed to be given by such transferee to Tenant.

Tenant agrees that such statements may be delivered to and relied upon by any existing or prospective mortgagee or purchaser of the Premises. Tenant agrees that a failure to deliver such a statement within ten (10) days after written request from Landlord will be conclusive upon Tenant as to the matters set forth in any pre-prepared estoppel certificate, and in any event, that this Lease is in full force and effect without modification except as may be represented by Landlord; that there are no uncured defaults by Landlord under this Lease and that any representation by Landlord with respect to Rent, amounts due to Tenant, and the Security Deposit are true.

Damage or Destruction
10.1 General. If the Premises are damaged or destroyed by reason of fire or any other cause, Tenant will immediately notify Landlord and will promptly repair or rebuild the Premises at Tenants expense, so as to make the Premises at least equal in value to the Premises existing immediately prior to the occurrence and as nearly similar to it in character as is practicable and reasonable. Any repair or rebuilding work which will affect any structural component of the Premises or will require the issuance of a building permit (or other similar authorization) shall be performed under the supervision of a licensed architect selected by Tenant, subject to Landlords and Fee Mortgagees reasonable approval. Subject to the superior rights of any Fee Mortgagee, Landlord will apply and make available to pay to Tenant the net proceeds of any fire or other casualty insurance paid to Landlord, after deduction of any costs of collection, including reasonable attorneys fees, for repairing or rebuilding as the same progresses. Payments will be made against properly certified vouchers of a competent architect in charge of the work and approved by Landlord. If Landlord has received any insurance proceeds, then Landlord will contribute, out of such insurance proceeds, towards each payment to be made by or on behalf of Tenant for the repairing or rebuilding of the Premises, under a schedule of payments to be made by Tenant and not unreasonably objected to by Landlord, an amount in the proportion to the payment by Tenant as the total net amount received by Landlord from insurers bears to the total estimated cost of the rebuilding or repairing. Landlord, however, may withhold from each amount so to be paid by Landlord fifteen percent (15%) of the amount until the work of repairing or rebuilding is completed and proof has been furnished to Landlord that no lien or liability has attached or will attach to the Premises or to Landlord in connection with the repairing or rebuilding. Before beginning repairs or rebuilding, or letting any contracts in connection with repairs or rebuilding, Tenant will submit for Landlords approval, which approval Landlord will not unreasonably withhold or delay, complete and detailed plans and specifications for the repairs or rebuilding. Promptly after receiving Landlords approval of those plans and
specifications, Tenant will begin the repairs or rebuilding and will prosecute the repairs or rebuilding to completion with diligence, subject, however, to strikes, lockouts, acts of God, embargoes, governmental restrictions, and other causes beyond Tenants reasonable control. Tenant will obtain and deliver to Landlord a temporary or final certificate of occupancy before the Premises are reoccupied for any purpose. The repairs or rebuilding will be completed with due diligence, in a good and workman like manner, free and clear of mechanics or other liens (in accordance with Section 9.1 above), and in accordance with the building codes and all Applicable Laws, ordinances, regulations, or orders of any state, municipal, or other public authority affecting the repairs or rebuilding, and also in accordance with the Contractual Requirements, and all requirements of the insurance rating organization, or similar body, and of any liability insurance company insuring Landlord against liability for accidents related to the Premises.
10.2 Landlords Inspection. During the progress of repairs or rebuilding, Landlord and its architects and engineers may from time to time inspect the Premises and will be furnished, if required by them, with copies of all plans, shop drawings, and specifications relating to the repairs or rebuilding. Tenant will keep all plans, shop drawings, and specifications at the building, and Landlord and its architects and engineers may examine those at all reasonable times. If, during repairs or rebuilding, Landlord and its architects and engineers determine that the repairs or rebuilding are not being done in accordance with the approved plans and specifications, Landlord will give prompt notice in writing to Tenant, specifying in detail the particular deficiency, omission, or other respect in which Landlord claims the repairs or rebuilding do not accord with the approved plans and specifications. Upon the receipt of that notice, Tenant will cause corrections to be made to any deficiencies, omissions, or such other respect. Tenants obligations to supply insurance according to Section 6.1 will be applicable to any repairs or building under this Section.
10.3 Landlords Costs. The charges of any architect or engineer of Landlord employed to pass upon any plans and specifications and to supervise and approve any construction, or for any services rendered by the architect or engineer to Landlord as contemplated by any of the provisions of this Lease, will be paid by Tenant as a cost of the repair or rebuilding. The fees of such architect or engineer will be those customarily paid for comparable services.
10.4 No Rent Abatement. Basic Rent and Additional Rent will not abate pending the repairs or rebuilding except to the extent to which Landlord receives a net sum as proceeds of any business interruption insurance carried by Tenant.
11.1 TakingSubstantial TakingInsubstantial Taking. A Taking will mean the Taking of all or any portion of the Premises as a result of the exercise of the power of eminent domain or condemnation for public or quasi-public use or the sale or transfer of all or part of the Premises under the threat of condemnation. A Total Taking will mean a Taking of so much of the Premises such that the Premises (even if the restorations described in Section 11.3 below were to be made) cannot be used by Tenant for the purposes for which they were used immediately before the Taking. A Partial Taking will mean a Taking in which the amount of the Premises remaining after the Taking can be used for substantially the same purposes for which they were used immediately before the taking.
11.2 Total Taking. In the event of a Total Taking, this Lease will end on the earlier of the vesting of title to the Premises in the condemning authority or the taking of possession of the Premises by the condemning authority (in either case the ending date). If this Lease ends according to this paragraph, prepaid Rent will be appropriately prorated to the ending date. The award in a taking subject to this paragraph will be allocated according to Section 11.5 below.
11.3 Partial Taking.

In connection with any Taking subject to Section 11.2 or Section 11.3, Tenant may prosecute its own claim by separate proceedings against the condemning authority for damages legally due to it (such as the loss of fixtures which Tenant was entitled to remove and moving expenses) only so long as Tenants award does not diminish or otherwise adversely affect Landlords award.

12.2 Failure to Pay Rent or Other Amounts. Tenant fails to pay when due any Rent due hereunder, and such failure will continue for five (5) days or more. If Tenant will fail to timely pay any Rent due hereunder two (2) or more times during the Lease Term, Landlord may require Tenant to make all future payments of Rent in the form of a cashiers check or money order.
12.3 Violation of Lease Terms. Tenant breaches or fails to comply with any covenant or condition in this Lease applicable to Tenant, and such breach or failure to comply continues for a period of ten (10) days or more after notice thereof by Landlord to Tenant, or, if such breach or failure to comply cannot be reasonably cured within such ten (10) day period, if Tenant will not in good faith commence to cure such breach or failure to comply within such ten (10) day period or will not diligently proceed therewith to completion, but in any event not longer than sixty (60) days.
12.4 Abandonment of Premises. If Tenant vacates and abandons the Premises. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a cessation by Tenant of its operations at the Premises shall not be deemed a vacation or abandonment of the Premises so long as Tenant continues to maintain the Premises in accordance with the terms of this Lease.
12.5 Execution and Attachment against Tenant. Tenants interest under this Lease or in the Premises will be taken upon execution or by other process of law directed against Tenant, or will be subject to any attachment at the instance of any creditor or claimant against Tenant and said attachment will not be discharged or disposed of within fifteen (15) days after the levy thereof.
12.6 Bankruptcy or Related Proceedings. Tenant files a petition in bankruptcy or insolvency or for reorganization or arrangement under the bankruptcy laws of the United States or under any similar act of any state; or Tenant voluntarily takes advantage of any such law or act by answer or otherwise; or Tenant is dissolved or suspended or Tenant makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors or if involuntary proceedings under any such bankruptcy or insolvency law or for the dissolution of Tenant are instituted against Tenant; or a receiver or trustee are appointed for the Premises or for all or substantially all of the property of Tenant, and such proceedings are not dismissed or such receivership or trusteeship not vacated within sixty (60) days after such institution or appointment.
12.7 Insurance. Tenant fails to procure and maintain any insurance policies required under this Lease, and such failure continues for a period of five (5) days after notice thereof from Landlord to Tenant.

Tenant fails to comply with Section 6.1, which requires Tenant to deliver insurance policies, certificates and other evidence of required coverage annually to Landlord, and such failure continues for a period of five (5) days after notice thereof from Landlord to Tenant.
13.1 Remedies Generally. Upon the occurrence of any Default by Tenant, Landlord will have the right, at Landlords election, then or at any time thereafter, to exercise any one or more of the remedies described below.
13.2 Cure by Landlord. Landlord may, at Landlords option, but without obligation to do so, and without releasing Tenant from any obligations under this Lease, make any payment or take any action as Landlord may deem necessary or desirable to cure any such Default by Tenant in such manner and to such extent, as Landlord may deem necessary or desirable. Landlord may do so without demand on, or written notice to, Tenant and without giving Tenant an opportunity to cure such Default by Tenant. Tenant covenants to pay to Landlord, within ten (10) days after demand, all advances, costs and expense of Landlord in connection with the making of any such payment or the taking of any such action, including reasonable legal fees, together with interest as hereinafter provided, from the date of payment by Landlord. Action taken by Landlord may include commencing, appearing in, defending or otherwise participating in any action or proceeding and paying, purchasing, contesting or compromising any claim, right, encumbrance, charge or lien with respect to the Premises which Landlord, in its discretion, may deem necessary or desirable to protect its interest in the Premises and under this Lease.
13.3 Termination of Lease and Damages. Landlord may terminate this Lease, effective at such time as may be specified by written notice to Tenant, and demand and recover possession of the Premises from Tenant. Upon (i) notice from Landlord, or (ii) Tenants abandonment of the Premises following service of the statutory notice for payment of rent or possession of the Premises, Tenants liability for Basic Rent and Additional Rent will survive termination of this Lease. At the option of Landlord, Landlord may demand and collect such Basic Rent and Additional Rent as the same becomes due. Landlord shall make reasonable efforts to mitigate its damages and the net rent received from any subsequent tenant, after deduction of Landlords related expenses, shall reduce the obligation of Tenant. Such Basic Rent and Additional Rent, will be deemed damages for loss of the bargain and not as penalty.
13.4 Repossession and Reletting. Tenant does not waive any statutory rights, including due process. In any manner permitted by law, Landlord may reenter and take possession of the Premises or any part thereof and repossess the same and expel Tenant and any party claiming by, under or through Tenant, and remove the effects of both, without being liable for prosecution on account thereof or being deemed guilty of any manner of trespass, and without prejudice to any remedies for arrears of Rent or right to bring any proceeding for breach of covenants or conditions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord determines, in its reasonable judgement, that Tenant has abandoned the Premises then Landlord may, upon proper notice, apply for a court order and, if successful, reenter and take possession of the Premises or any part thereof and may remove the effects of Tenant or any party claiming by, under or through Tenant. . After recovering possession of the Premises, Landlord shall endeavor to relet the Premises, or any part thereof to a new tenant so long as the new tenant meets or exceeds the financial and other underwriting criteria applied by Landlord to Tenant, for the account of Tenant, for such term, on such conditions and upon such other terms as Landlord, in its reasonable discretion, may determine. Landlord may make such repairs, alterations or improvements as Landlord may consider appropriate to accomplish such reletting, and Tenant will reimburse Landlord upon demand for all costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, which Landlord may incur in connection with such reletting. Landlord may collect and receive Rent for such reletting but Landlord will in no way be responsible or liable for any reasonable failure to relet the Premises, or any part thereof, or for any reasonable failure to collect any Rent due upon such reletting. Notwithstanding Landlords recovery of possession of the Premises, Tenant will continue to pay on the dates herein specified all Rent which would be payable hereunder if such repossession had not occurred, less the amounts recovered by Landlord through any reletting of the Premises.
13.5 Landlords Lien and Enforcement. Tenant hereby grants to Landlord a security interest in all personal tangible and intangible property owned by Tenant now or hereafter located on the Premises as security for the performance of Tenants obligations under this Lease. Tenant covenants, upon request by Landlord, to execute and deliver such financing statements as may be necessary or desirable to perfect the security interest hereby granted. In the event of a Default by Tenant, Landlord may foreclose the security interest hereby granted in any manner permitted by law. Tenant covenants to preserve and protect Landlords collateral and not to sell (except in the ordinary course of Tenants business at reasonable, fair and arms-length prices), dispose of, remove from the Premises or otherwise cause a diminution of the value of Landlords collateral.
13.6 Suits by Landlord. Actions or suits for the recovery of amounts and damages payable under this Lease may be brought by Landlord from time to time, at Landlords election, and Landlord will not be required to await the date upon which the Lease Term would have expired to bring any such action or suit.
13.7 Recovery of Landlord Enforcement Costs. All costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with collecting any amounts and damages owing by Tenant pursuant to the provisions of this Lease or to enforce any provision of this Lease, including reasonable legal fees, whether or not any action is commenced by Landlord, will be paid by Tenant to Landlord upon demand. In the event that Tenant prevails in any legal action with Landlord, Landlord shall pay to Tenant its costs, expenses, and reasonable attorney fees incurred in such action.
13.8 Late Payment Charge. Tenant covenants to pay to Landlord a late payment charge in the amount of five percent (5%) of any installment of Rent that Tenant fails to pay within five (5) days after such payment is due.
13.9 Interest on Advances. Tenant covenants to pay to Landlord interest on demand at five percent (5%) above the Reference Rate, as hereinafter defined, (the Interest Rate) on (i) the amount of any payment made by Landlord required to have been made by Tenant under this Lease and on the amount of any costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, paid by Landlord in connection with the taking of any action to cure any Default by Tenant, from the date of making any such payment or the advancement of such costs and expenses by Landlord and (ii) any amounts not paid by Tenant when due under this Lease. Reference Rate will mean the rate published as its reference rate or its base rate or similar term for its baseline rate for calculating the interest rate for short term unsecured commercial loans to creditworthy customers by Wells Fargo, NA, a national banking association (the Bank), or other bank as hereinafter provided, at the time of making any such payment or the advancement of such costs and expenses by Landlord as aforesaid, but not in excess of the maximum amount of finance charge permissible under Applicable Law. If the Bank discontinues the use of a Reference Rate, the Reference Rate being charged by any other national banking association located in Denver, Colorado, as selected by Landlord in its sole discretion, will be used for computing the interest under this Section 13.10.
13.10 Landlords Bankruptcy Remedies. Nothing contained in this Lease will limit or prejudice the right of Landlord to prove and obtain as liquidated damages in any bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, reorganization or dissolution proceeding, an amount equal to the maximum allowable by any Applicable Law governing such proceeding in effect at the time when such damages are to be proved, whether or not such amount be greater, equal or less than the amounts recoverable, either as damages or Rent, under this Lease.
13.11 Remedies Cumulative. Exercise of any of the remedies of Landlord under this Lease will not prevent the concurrent or subsequent exercise of any other remedy provided for in this Lease or otherwise available to Landlord at law or in equity, with respect to the same or any other Default by Tenant.
Surrender and Holding Over
14.1 Surrender Upon Lease Expiration. Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, or on the date specified in any demand for possession by Landlord after any Default by Tenant, Tenant covenants to surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord, in the condition required in Section 9.10.
14.2 Holding Over. If Tenant will hold over after the expiration of the Lease Term, without written agreement providing otherwise, Tenant will be deemed to be a tenant from month to month, at a monthly rental, payable in advance, equal to one hundred twenty five percent (125%) of one-twelfth (1/12) of the Basic Rent payable during the last year of the Lease Term, and Tenant will be bound by all of the other terms, covenants and agreements of this Lease. Nothing contained herein will be construed to give Tenant the right to hold over at any time, and Landlord may exercise any and all remedies at law or in equity to recover possession of the Premises, as well as any damages incurred by Landlord, due to Tenants failure to vacate the Premises and deliver possession to Landlord as herein provided.
15.1 No Implied Waiver. No failure by either Party to insist upon the strict performance of any provision in this Lease, no failure by either Party to exercise any right or remedy under this Lease, and no acceptance of full or partial payment during the continuance of any Default by Tenant, will constitute a waiver of any such provision, or a waiver of any such right or remedy, or a waiver of any such Default by Tenant.
15.2 Survival of Provisions. Notwithstanding the expiration of the Lease Term or earlier termination of this Lease, the same will continue in full force and effect as to any provisions hereof which require observance or performance by Landlord or Tenant subsequent to such expiration or termination.
15.3 Covenants Independent. It is the intent of the parties that this Lease be construed as if the covenants herein between Landlord and Tenant are independent and not dependent; that the Basic Rent will be payable without offset, reduction or abatement for any cause except in case of violation of Landlord of section 3.2 or as otherwise specifically provided in this Lease; that Landlord will not bear any costs or expenses relating to the Premises or provide any services or do any act in connection with the Premises except as otherwise specifically provided in this Lease; and that Tenant will pay, in addition to Basic Rent, Additional Rent as provided herein.
15.4 Covenants as Conditions. Each provision of this Lease performable by either Party will be deemed both a covenant and a condition.
15.5 Tenants Remedies. Tenant may bring a separate action against Landlord for any claim Tenant may have against Landlord under this Lease, provided Tenant will first give written notice thereof to Landlord and will afford Landlord a reasonable opportunity (but in no event less than thirty (30) days) to cure any such default. In addition, Tenant will send notice of such default by certified or registered mail, postage prepaid, to any Fee Mortgagee whose address Tenant has been notified in writing, and will afford such holder a reasonable opportunity to cure any default on Landlords behalf. In no event will Landlord be responsible for any consequential damages incurred by Tenant including loss of profits or interruption of business as a result of any default by Landlord hereunder.
15.6 Inability to Perform. This Lease and the obligation of Tenant to pay Rent and perform all of the other covenants and agreements hereunder will not be affected, impaired or excused, nor will Landlord at any time be deemed to be in default hereunder, because Landlord is delayed in or is unable to (a) fulfill any of its obligations under this Lease, (b) supply any service expressly or by implication to be supplied, (c) make any Tenant improvements, repairs, additions, alterations or decorations, or (d) supply any equipment or fixtures, if Landlord is prevented or delayed from performing any of the foregoing by reason of accident, breakage, repairs, strike or labor troubles or any outside cause whatsoever beyond the reasonable control of Landlord, including riots and civil disturbances, energy shortages or governmental preemption in connection with a national emergency, or by reason of any rule, order or regulation of any department or subdivision thereof of any government agency, or by reason of the conditions of supply and demand which have been or are affected by war or other emergency, or by reason of any other cause, similar or dissimilar, beyond the reasonable control of Landlord.

Within 15 days after Fee Mortgagees request, Tenant will furnish Tenants most recent audited financial statements (including any notes to them) to Fee Mortgagee, or, if no such audited statements have been prepared, such other financial statements (and notes to them) as may have been prepared by an independent certified public accountant. Tenant will discuss its financial statements with Fee Mortgagee and, following the occurrence of a Default by Tenant hereunder, will give Landlord access to Tenants books and records in order to enable Landlord to verify the financial statements. Landlord and Fee Mortgagee will not disclose any aspect of Tenants financial statements that Tenant designates to Landlord as confidential except (i) to any Fee Mortgagee or prospective Fee Mortgagee or purchasers of the Premises, (ii) in litigation between Landlord and Tenant, and/or (iii) if required by Applicable Law or court order.
15.8 No Merger. There shall be no merger of the leasehold estate hereby created with the fee estate in the Premises or any part thereof if the same person acquires or holds, directly or indirectly, this Lease or any interest in this Lease and the fee estate in the leasehold Premises or any interest in such fee estate.
