For and in consideration of the rents and covenants hereinafter set forth, Landlord does hereby lease to Tenant, and Tenant does hereby lease from Landlord the Premises as described in the Basic Provisions. Tenant is hereby granted an exclusive right to use the premises during the term of this Lease for their intended purposes.





This Lease shall be for the term of 2 years as set forth in the Basic Provisions. The date the Term commences shall be referred to in this Lease as the “Commencement Date” and is April 1, 2021. The word “Term” will include any renewal and extensions of the original term, where the context so requires. The Commencement Date shall be contingent upon Landlord being able to deliver the Premises in a condition clear of any equipment, debris, or vehicles; and secured by a property boundary perimeter fence. If Landlord cannot deliver upon these conditions, any deposits or commissions shall be refunded in full to all parties, and all agreements contemplated between the parties shall no longer be in force or effect, and shall be considered terminated, null and void.

3.2 Late Charge and Rent without Offset.

Accordingly, if any Base Rent, or any other sum due from tenant is not received within five (5) days after due date Tenant shall pay to Landlord an additional sum equal to 5% of such overdue payment. Landlord and Tenant hereby agree that such late charge represents a fair and reasonable estimate of the costs that Landlord will incur by reason of any such late payment. In addition to any installment of Base Rent, Additional Rental, or other charges to be paid by Tenant accruing under the Lease, which shall not be and remains unpaid for twenty (20) days thereafter, paid when due, shall bear interest at the rate of 12% per annum from the date when the same is due until the same shall be paid.

5.3 Signs. With Landlord’s prior written consent, Tenant shall be permitted to erect a sign or signs upon the Premises at its expense, provided all signage is in compliance with size and other requirements of the Town of Gilbert and as may be set forth by applicable ordinances and regulations.

In the event any proceedings are brought for default under any such ground or underlying lease, or in the event of foreclosure or the exercise of the power of sale under any such mortgage or deed of trust, Tenant shall attorn to the purchaser of the Premises at such foreclosure or sale and recognize such purchaser as Landlord under this Lease, provided such purchaser agrees to be bound by the terms of this Lease.

Upon lease execution, Landlord shall pay to Avison Young a commission equal to five percent (5%) of the total lease consideration over the Lease Term ($3,240.00).
