Tenant agrees, at the election of the holder of any such mortgage, to attorn to any such holder. Tenant agrees upon demand to execute, acknowledge and deliver such instruments, confirming such subordination and such instruments of attornment as shall be requested by any such holder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any such holder may at any time subordinate its mortgage to this Lease, without Tenants consent, by notice in writing to Tenant, and thereupon this Lease shall be deemed prior to such mortgage without regard to their respective dates of execution, delivery or recording and in that event such holder shall have the same rights with respect to this Lease as though this Lease had been executed prior to the execution, delivery and recording of such mortgage and had been assigned to such holder. The term mortgage whenever used in this Lease shall be deemed to include deeds of trust, security assignments and any other encumbrances, and any reference to the holder of a mortgage shall be deemed to include the beneficiary under a deed of trust.
28. Mechanics Liens. Tenant has no express or implied authority to create or place any lien or encumbrance of any kind upon, or in any manner to bind the interest of Landlord or Tenant in, the Premises or to charge the rentals payable hereunder for any claim in favor of any person dealing with Tenant, including those who may furnish materials or perform labor for any construction or repairs. Tenant covenants and agrees that it will pay or cause to be paid all sums legally due and payable by it on account of any labor performed or materials furnished in connection with any work performed on the Premises and that it will save and hold Landlord harmless from all loss, cost or expense based on or arising out of asserted claims or liens against the leasehold estate or against the interest of Landlord in the Premises or under this Lease. Tenant shall give Landlord immediate written notice of the placing of any lien or encumbrance against the Premises and cause such lien or encumbrance to be discharged within 20 days of the filing or recording thereof, provided, however. Tenant may contest such liens or encumbrances as long as such contest prevents foreclosure of the lien or encumbrance and Tenant causes such lien or encumbrance to be bonded or insured over in a manner satisfactory to Landlord within such 20 days period.
29. Estoppel Certificates. Tenant agrees, from time to time, within 10 days after request of Landlord, to execute and deliver to Landlord, or Landlords designee, any estoppel certificate requested by Landlord, stating that this Lease is in full force and effect, the date to which rent has been paid, that Landlord is not in default hereunder (or specifying in detail the nature of Landlords default), the termination date of this Lease and such other matters pertaining to this Lease as may be requested by Landlord. Tenants obligation to furnish each estoppel certificate in a timely fashion is a material inducement for Landlords execution of this Lease. No cure or grace period provided in this Lease shall apply to Tenants obligations to timely deliver an estoppel certificate.
30. Environmental Requirements. Except for Hazardous Material contained in products used by Tenant in de minimis quantities for ordinary cleaning and office purposes, and except for propane used in Tenants forklifts in the normal course of its business, and except for Hazardous Materials contained in products stored and/or distributed during Tenants normal course of business in their original, sealed and unopened containers, Tenant shall not permit or cause any party to bring any Hazardous Material upon the Premises or transport, store, use, generate, manufacture or release any Hazardous Material in or about the Premises without Landlords prior written consent. Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall operate its business in the Premises in strict compliance with all Environmental Requirements and shall remediate in a manner satisfactory to Landlord any Hazardous Materials released on or from the Project by Tenant, its agents, employees, contractors, subtenants or invitees. Tenant shall complete and certify to disclosure statements as requested by Landlord from time to time relating to Tenants transportation, storage, use, generation, manufacture or release of Hazardous Materials on the Premises. The term Environmental Requirements means all applicable present and future statutes, regulations, ordinances, rules, codes, judgments, orders or others similar enactments of any governmental authority or agency regulating or relating to health, safety, or environmental conditions on, under, or about the Premises or the environment, including without limitation, the following: the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act; the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act; and all state and local counterparts thereto, and any regulations or policies promulgated or issued thereunder. The term Hazardous Materials means and includes any substance, material, waste, pollutant, or contaminant listed or defined as hazardous or toxic, under any Environmental Requirements, asbestos and petroleum, including crude oil or any fraction thereof, natural gas liquids, liquefied natural gas, or synthetic gas usable for fuel (or mixtures of natural gas and such synthetic gas). As defined in Environmental Requirements, Tenant is and shall be deemed to be the operator of Tenants facility and the owner of all Hazardous Materials brought on the Premises by Tenant, its agents, employees, contractors or invitees, and the wastes, by-products, or residues generated, resulting, or produced therefrom. No cure or grace period provided in this Lease shall apply to Tenants obligations to comply with the terms and conditions of this Paragraph 30.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Paragraph 30. Tenant shall have no liability of any Kind to Landlord as to Hazardous Materials on the Premises caused or permitted by (i) Landlord, its agents, employees, contractors or invitees; or (ii) any other tenants in the Project or their agents, employees, contractors, subtenants, assignees or invitees.
Tenant shall indemnify, defined and hold Landlord harmless from and against any and all losses (including, without limitation, diminution in value of the Premises or the Project and loss of rental income from the Project), claims, demands, actions, suits, damages (including, without limitation, punitive damages), expenses (including, without limitation, remediation, removal, repair, corrective action, or cleanup expenses), and costs (including, without limitation, actual attorneys fees, consultant fees or expert fees and including, without limitation, removal or management of any asbestos brought into the property or disturbed in breach of the requirements of this Paragraph 30, regardless of whether such removal or management is required by law) which are brought or recoverable against, or suffered or incurred by Landlord as a result of any release of Hazardous Materials for which Tenant is obligated to remediate as provided above or any other breach of the requirements under this Paragraph 30 by Tenant, its agents, employees, contractors, subtenants, assignees or invitees, regardless of whether Tenant had Knowledge of such noncompliance. The obligations of Tenant under this Paragraph 30 shall survive any termination of this Lease.
