(c) Liens or encumbrances caused by the actions of Buyer but not those caused by the actions of Seller.
The items described in this Section 5 are sometimes collectively referred to as the “Permitted Exceptions.”
Buyer acknowledges and agrees that Buyer has had extensive opportunity to become familiar with the condition of the Property both pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and otherwise. Except as expressly provided for herein, Buyer acknowledges that it is purchasing the Property in an “AS IS, WHERE IS” CONDITION “WITH ALL FAULTS,” AND THAT, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, NEITHER SELLER NOR ANY AGENTS OF SELLER HAVE MADE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES TO BUYER, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY NATURE REGARDING: THE QUALITY OR CONDITION OF THE PROPERTY; THE ABILITY TO DEVELOP OR USE THE PROPERTY; THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF ANY IMPROVEMENTS INCLUDED IN THE PROPERTY; THE QUALITY OF GROUNDWATER OR PROPERTY SOIL; THE MERCHANTABILITY OF THE PROPERTY OR THE FITNESS OF THE PROPERTY FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE; THE QUALITY, NATURE, ADEQUACY OR PHYSICAL CONDITION OF THE IMPROVEMENTS OR ANY LANDSCAPING, PARKING FACILITIES, OR SEWAGE AND UTILITY SYSTEMS AND FACILITIES; THE ZONING AND LAND USE RESTRICTIONS APPLICABLE TO THE PROPERTY; THE COMPLIANCE OF THE PROPERTY OR ITS OPERATION WITH ANY APPLICABLE CODES, LAWS, REGULATIONS, COVENANTS, CONDITIONS OR RESTRICTIONS; THE PRESENCE OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS IN, ON, UNDER OR ABOUT THE PROPERTY, OR ADJOINING OR NEIGHBORING PROPERTY OR WATERWAYS; OR THE ECONOMICS OF THE OPERATION OF THE PROPERTY. Buyer also acknowledges that in purchasing the Property, Buyer is not relying on Seller or its agents as to the condition of the Property, except as otherwise expressly represented by Seller herein. Buyer is purchasing the Property pursuant to its independent examination, study and inspection of the Property, including but not limited to its review of documents and other information provided by Seller to Buyer pursuant to this Agreement, and Buyer is relying upon its own determination of the value of the Property, the uses to which the Property may be put under applicable laws, including zoning laws, and the compliance of the Property with applicable laws, including environmental laws.
6. Buyer’s Due Diligence.
(a) Buyer shall have thirty (30) days from the Effective Date to complete Buyer’s third party inspection reports (the “Due Diligence Period”). Buyer shall coordinate directly with the Operator of each Facility (with notice to Seller) regarding the scheduling of any third-party inspections. All third party inspections and investigations at each respective Facility shall be conducted by Buyer in such manner so as not to disrupt the operation of such Facility. Buyer may, at its sole cost, obtain third party engineering and physical condition reports and Phase I Environmental Audits covering the Facility, certified to Buyer, prepared by an engineering and/or environmental consultants acceptable to Buyer; provided, no inspection by Buyer’s Consultants shall involve the taking of samples or other physically invasive procedures (such as a Phase II environmental audit) without the prior written consent of Seller, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Buyer shall indemnify, defend (with counsel acceptable to Seller) and hold Seller and its employees and agents, and each of them, harmless from and against any and all losses, claims, damages and liabilities, without limitation, attorneys’ fees incurred in connection therewith) arising out of or resulting from Buyer’ or Buyer’s Consultant’s exercise of its right of inspection as provided for in this Section 6; provided, however, such indemnification shall not extend to matters merely discovered by Buyer and/or the acts or omissions of Seller or any third party. The indemnification obligation of Buyer under this Section 6 shall survive the termination of this Agreement indefinitely. Following any audit or inspection as provided for herein, Buyer shall return the Real Property and the Facility to the condition in which they existed immediately prior to such audit or inspection.
(b) If the results of the foregoing inspections and audits are not acceptable to Buyer in its sole and absolute discretion, Buyer may, upon notice to Seller given on or before 5:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the last day of the Due Diligence Period, terminate this Agreement, and in such event, neither party shall have any further rights and obligations under this Agreement, except for obligations which expressly survive the termination of this Agreement. In the event Buyer elects to terminate this Agreement, the Deposit shall be released and retained by the Seller. Failure of Buyer to deliver written notice of approval prior to 5:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the last day of the Due Diligence Period shall be deemed to constitute Buyer’s approval of the matters described in this Section 6(a). Upon the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, whether or not Buyer approves, disapproves or is deemed to approve the same, the Deposit shall be released to Seller and shall be deemed non-refundable except as otherwise provided in this Agreement. If this Agreement shall be terminated prior to Closing, upon Seller’s request, Buyer shall promptly return or destroy all copies of the Due Diligence Items.
7. Prorations; Closing Costs; Possession; Post Closing Assistance.
(a) Except as set forth in this Section 7(a), there will be no prorations at the Closing and each Operator, its successors or assigns shall remain responsible for all taxes, costs and expenses relating to the Facility following the Closing pursuant to their lease. Rent for the month of February 2019 will not be prorated and will be retained by Seller once paid. Any amount held in any escrow account by, or for the benefit of, Seller for real property taxes, insurance, deposits, and/or replacement reserves shall be refunded to Buyer at Closing.
(b) Buyer shall pay any state, county and local transfer taxes arising out of the transfer of the Real Property.

All other costs associated with title and survey matters shall be paid in accordance with County (and local) custom and practice in which each respective Real Property is located.
