foregoing, if Landlord does not either obtain a building permit within [NUMBER] days of the
date of such damage or destruction, or complete such repairs, rebuilding or restoration within
[NUMBER] months of such damage or destruction, then Tenant may at any time thereafter
cancel and terminate this Lease by sending [NUMBER] days written notice thereof to
Landlord, or, in the alternative, Tenant may, during said [NUMBER] day period, apply for the
same and Landlord shall cooperate with Tenant in Tenant’s application. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, if such damage or destruction shall occur during the last year of the term of this
Lease, or during any renewal term, and shall amount to [%] or more of the replacement cost,
(exclusive of the land and foundations), this Lease, may be terminated at the election of
either Landlord or Tenant, provided that notice of such election shall be sent by the party so
electing to the other within [NUMBER] days after the occurrence of such damage or
destruction. Upon termination, as aforesaid, by either party hereto, this Lease and the term
thereof shall cease and come to an end, any unearned rent or other charges paid in advance
by Tenant shall be refunded to Tenant, and the parties shall be released hereunder, each to
the other, from all liability and obligations hereunder thereafter arising.
20. CONDEMNATION
a. Total Taking: If, after the execution of this Lease and prior to the expiration of the term
hereof, the whole of the Leased Premises shall be taken under power of eminent domain by
any public or private authority, or conveyed by Landlord to said authority in lieu of such
taking, then this Lease and the term hereof shall cease and terminate as of the date when
possession of the Leased Premises shall be taken by the taking authority and any unearned
rent or other charges, if any, paid in advance, shall be refunded to Tenant.
b. Partial Taking: If, after the execution of this Lease and prior to the expiration of the term
hereof, any public or private authority shall, under the power of eminent domain, take, or
Landlord shall convey to said authority in lieu of such taking, property which results in a
reduction by [%] or more of the area in the Leased Premises, or of a portion of the Leased
Premises that substantially interrupts or substantially obstructs the conducting of business on
the Leased Premises; then Tenant may, at its election, terminate this Lease by giving
Landlord notice of the exercise of Tenant’s election within [NUMBER] days after Tenant shall
receive notice of such taking. In the event of termination by Tenant of this Lease and the term
hereof shall cease and terminate as of the date when possession shall be taken by the
appropriate authority of that portion of the Entire Property that results in one of the above
takings, and any unearned rent or other charges, if any, paid in advance by Tenant shall be
refunded to Tenant.
c. Restoration: In the event of a taking in respect of which Tenant shall not have the right to
elect to terminate this Lease or, having such right, shall not elect to terminate this Lease, this
Lease and the term thereof shall continue in full force and effect and Landlord, at Landlord’s
sole cost and expense, forthwith shall restore the remaining portions of the Leased Premises,

Lease Agreement
Page 8 of 19
of the rent reserved herein and any other charges payable by Tenant hereunder, according to
the nature and extent of the injury to the Leased Premises and to Tenant’s business, shall be
suspended or abated until the completion of such restoration and thereafter the rent and any
other charges shall be reduced in proportion to the square footage of the Leased Premises
remaining after such taking.
d. The Award: All compensation awarded for any taking, whether for the whole or a portion of
the Leased Premises, shall be the sole property of the Landlord whether such compensation
shall be awarded for diminution in the value of, or loss of, the leasehold or for diminution in
the value of, or loss of, the fee in the Leased Premises, or otherwise. The Tenant hereby
assigns to Landlord all of Tenant’s right and title to and interest in any and all such
compensation. However, the Landlord shall not be entitled to and Tenant shall have the sole
right to make its independent claim for and retain any portion of any award made by the
appropriating authority directly to Tenant for loss of business, or damage to or depreciation
of, and cost of removal of fixtures, personality and improvements installed in the Leased
Premises by, or at the expense of Tenant, and to any other award made by the appropriating
authority directly to Tenant.
e. Release: In the event of any termination of this Lease as the result of the provisions of this
Article 20, the parties, effective as of such termination, shall be released, each to the other,
from all liability and obligations thereafter arising under this lease.
21. LANDLORD’S REMEDIES
In the event that:
a. Tenant shall on three or more occasions be in default in the payment of rent or other charges
herein required to be paid by Tenant (default herein being defined as payment received by
Landlord ten or more days subsequent to the due date), regardless of whether or not such
default has occurred on consecutive or non-consecutive months; or
b. Tenant has caused a lien to be filed against the Landlord’s property and said lien is not
removed within [NUMBER] days of recordation thereof; or
c.
Tenant shall default in the observance or performance of any of the covenants and
agreements required to be performed and observed by Tenant hereunder for a period of
[NUMBER] days after notice to Tenant in writing of such default (or if such default shall
reasonably take more than [NUMBER] days to cure, Tenant shall not have commenced the
same within the [NUMBER] days and diligently prosecuted the same to completion); or
d. [NUMBER] days have elapsed after the commencement of any proceeding by or against
Tenant, whether by the filing of a petition or otherwise, seeking any reorganization,
arrangement, composition, readjustment, liquidation, dissolution or similar relief under the
present or future Federal Bankruptcy Act or any other present or future applicable federal,
state or other statute or law, whereby such proceeding shall not have been dismissed
(provided, however, that the non-dismissal of any such proceeding shall not be a default
hereunder so long as all of Tenant’s covenants and obligations hereunder are being
performed by or on behalf of Tenant); then Landlord shall be entitled to its election (unless
Tenant shall cure such default prior to such election), to exercise concurrently or
successively, any one or more of the following rights:
i. Terminate this Lease by giving Tenant notice of termination, in which event this Lease
shall expire and terminate on the date specified in such notice of termination, with the
same force and effect as though the date so specified were the date herein originally
fixed as the termination date of the term of this Lease, and all rights of Tenant under
this Lease and in and to the Premises shall expire and terminate, and Tenant shall
Lease Agreement
Page 9 of 19
remain liable for all obligations under this Lease arising up to the date of such
termination, and Tenant shall surrender the Premises to Landlord on the date specified
in such notice; or
ii. Terminate this Lease as provided herein and recover from Tenant all damages
Landlord may incur by reason of Tenant’s default, including, without limitation, a sum
which, at the date of such termination, represents the then value of the excess, if any,
of (a) the Minimum Rent, Percentage Rent, Taxes and all other sums which would have
been payable hereunder by Tenant for the period commencing with the day following
the date of such termination and ending with the date herein before set for the
expiration of the full term hereby granted, over (b) the aggregate reasonable rental
value of the Premises for the same period, all of which excess sum shall be deemed
immediately due and payable; or
iii.
Without terminating this Lease, declare immediately due and payable all
Minimum Rent, Taxes, and other rents and amounts due and coming due under this
Lease for the entire remaining term hereof, together with all other amounts previously
due, at once; provided, however, that such payment shall not be deemed a penalty or
liquidated damages but shall merely constitute payment in advance of rent for the
remainder of said term. Upon making such payment, Tenant shall be entitled to receive
from Landlord all rents received by Landlord from other assignees, tenants, and
subtenants on account of said Premises during the term of this Lease, provided that the
monies to which tenant shall so become entitled shall in no event exceed the entire
amount actually paid by Tenant to Landlord pursuant to the preceding sentence less all
costs, expenses and attorney’s fees of Landlord incurred in connection with the
reletting of the Premises; or
iv.
Without terminating this Lease, and with or without notice to Tenant, Landlord
may in its own name but as agent for Tenant enter into and upon and take possession
of the Premises or any part thereof, and, at landlord’s option, remove persons and
property there from, and such property, if any, may be removed and stored in a
warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of, and for the account of Tenant, all without being
deemed guilty of trespass or becoming liable for any loss or damage which may be
occasioned thereby, and Landlord may rent the Premises or any portion thereof as the
agent of Tenant with or without advertisement, and by private negotiations and for any
term upon such terms and conditions as Landlord may deem necessary or desirable in
order to relet the Premises. Landlord shall in no way be responsible or liable for any
rental concessions or any failure to rent the Premises or any part thereof, or for any
failure to collect any rent due upon such reletting. Upon such reletting, all rentals
received by Landlord from such reletting shall be applied: first, to the payment of any
indebtedness (other than any rent due hereunder) from Tenant to Landlord; second, to
the payment of any costs and expenses of such reletting, including, without limitation,
brokerage fees and attorney’s fees and costs of alterations and repairs; third, to the
payment of rent and other charges then due and unpaid hereunder; and the residue, if
any shall be held by Landlord to the extent of and for application in payment of future
rent as the same may become due and payable hereunder. In reletting the Premises as
aforesaid, Landlord may grant rent concessions and Tenant shall not be credited
therefore. If such rentals received from such reletting shall at any time or from time to
time be less than sufficient to pay to Landlord the entire sums then due from Tenant
hereunder, Tenant shall pay any such deficiency to Landlord. Such deficiency shall, at
Landlord’s option, be calculated and paid monthly. No such reletting shall be construed
as an election by Landlord to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such
election has been given to Tenant by Landlord. Notwithstanding any such reletting
without termination, Landlord may at any time thereafter elect to terminate this Lease
for any such previous default provided same has not been cured; or
Lease Agreement
Page 10 of 19
v. Without liability to Tenant or any other party and without constituting a constructive or
actual eviction, suspend or discontinue furnishing or rendering to Tenant any property,
material, labor, Utilities or other service, whether Landlord is obligated to furnish or
render the same, so long as Tenant is in default under this Lease; or
vi.
Allow the Premises to remain unoccupied and collect rent from Tenant as it
comes due; or
vii.
Foreclose the security interest described herein, including the immediate taking
of possession of all property on or in the Premises; or
viii.
Pursue such other remedies as are available at law or equity.
e. Landlord’s pursuit of any remedy of remedies, including without limitation, any one or more of
the remedies stated herein shall not (1) constitute an election of remedies or preclude pursuit
of any other remedy or remedies provided in this Lease or any other remedy or remedies
provided by law or in equity, separately or concurrently or in any combination, or (2) sever as
the basis for any claim of constructive eviction, or allow Tenant to withhold any payments
under this Lease.
22. LANDLORD’S SELF HELP
If in the performance or observance of any agreement or condition in this Lease contained on its part to
be performed or observed and shall not cure such default within [NUMBER] days after notice from
Landlord specifying the default (or if such default shall reasonably take more than [NUMBER] days to
cure, shall diligently prosecuted the same to completion), Landlord may, at its option, without waiving any
claim for damages for breach of agreement, at any time thereafter cure such default for the account of
Tenant, and any amount paid or contractual liability incurred by Landlord in so doing shall be deemed
paid or incurred for the account of Tenant and Tenant agrees to reimburse Landlord therefore and save
Landlord harmless there from. Provided, however, that Landlord may cure any such default as aforesaid
prior to the expiration of said waiting period, without notice to Tenant if any emergency situation exists, or
after notice to Tenant, if the curing of such default prior to the expiration of said waiting period is
reasonably necessary to protect the Leased Premises or Landlord’s interest therein, or to prevent injury or
damage to persons or property. If Tenant shall fail to reimburse Landlord upon demand for any amount
paid for the account of Tenant hereunder, said amount shall be added to and become due as a part of the
next payment of rent due and shall for all purposes be deemed and treated as rent hereunder.
23. TENANT’S SELF HELP
If Landlord shall default in the performance or observance of any agreement or condition in this Lease
contained on its part to be performed or observed, and if Landlord shall not cure such default within
[NUMBER] days after notice from Tenant specifying the default (or, if such default shall reasonably take
more than [NUMBER] days to cure, and Landlord shall not have commenced the same within [NUMBER]
days and diligently prosecuted the same to completion), Tenant may, at its option, without waiving any
claim for damages for breach of agreement, at any time thereafter cure such default for the account of
Landlord and any amount paid or any contractual liability incurred by Tenant in so doing shall be deemed
paid or incurred for the account of Landlord and Landlord shall reimburse Tenant therefore and save
Tenant harmless there from. Provided, however, that Tenant may cure any such default as aforesaid prior
to the expiration of said waiting period, without notice to Landlord if an emergency situation exists, or after
notice to Landlord, if the curing of such default prior to the expiration of said waiting period is reasonably
necessary to protect the Leased Premises or Tenant’s interest therein or to prevent injury or damage to
persons or property. If Landlord shall fail to reimburse Tenant upon demand for any amount paid or
liability incurred for the account of Landlord hereunder, said amount or liability may be deducted by
Tenant from the next or any succeeding payments of rent due hereunder; provided, however, that should
said amount or the liability therefore be disputed by Landlord, Landlord may contest its liability or the
Lease Agreement
Page 11 of 19
amount thereof, through arbitration or through a declaratory judgment action and Landlord shall bear the
cost of the filing fees therefore.
24. TITLE
a. Subordination: Tenant shall, upon the request of Landlord in writing, subordinate this Lease
to the lien of any present or future institutional mortgage upon the Leased Premises
irrespective of the time of execution or the time of recording of any such mortgage. Provided,
however, that as a condition to such subordination, the holder of any such mortgage shall
enter first into a written agreement with Tenant in form suitable for recording to the effect that:
i. in the event of foreclosure or other action taken under the mortgage by the holder
thereof, this Lease and the rights of Tenant hereunder shall not be disturbed but shall
continue in full force and effect so long as Tenant shall not be in default hereunder
ii. such holder shall permit insurance proceeds and condemnation proceeds to be used
for any restoration and repair required by the provisions of this Agreement,
respectively. Tenant agrees that if the mortgagee or any person claiming under the
mortgagee shall succeed to the interest of Landlord in this Lease, Tenant will
recognize said mortgagee or person as its Landlord under the terms of this Lease,
provided that said mortgagee or person for the period during which said mortgagee
or person respectively shall be in possession of the Leased Premises and thereafter
their respective successors in interest shall assume all of the obligations of Landlord
hereunder. The word “mortgage”, as used herein includes mortgages, deeds of trust
or other similar instruments, and modifications, and extensions thereof. The term
“institutional mortgage” as used in this Article 24 means a mortgage securing a loan
from a bank or trust company, insurance company or pension trust or any other
lender institutional in nature and constituting a lien upon the Leased Premises.
b. Quiet Enjoyment: Landlord covenants and agrees that upon Tenant paying the rent and
observing and performing all of the terms, covenants and conditions on Tenant’s part to be
observed and performed hereunder, that Tenant may peaceably and quietly have, hold,
occupy and enjoy the Leased Premises in accordance with the terms of this Lease without
hindrance or molestation from Landlord or any persons lawfully claiming through Landlord.
c. Zoning and Good Title: Landlord warrants and represents, upon which warranty and
representation Tenant has relied in the execution of this Lease, that Landlord is the owner of
the Leased Premises, in fee simple absolute, free and clear of all encumbrances, except for
the easements, covenants and restrictions of record as of the date of this Lease. Such
exceptions shall not impede or interfere with the quiet use and enjoyment of the Leased
Premises by Tenant. Landlord further warrants and covenants that this Lease is and shall be
a first lien on the Leased Premises, subject only to any Mortgage to which this Lease is
subordinate or may become subordinate pursuant to an agreement executed by Tenant, and
to such encumbrances as shall be caused by the acts or omissions of Tenant; that Landlord
has full right and lawful authority to execute this Lease for the term, in the manner, and upon
the conditions and provisions herein contained; that there is no legal impediment to the use of
the Leased Premises as set out herein; that the Leased Premises are not subject to any
easements, restrictions, zoning ordinances or similar governmental regulations which prevent
their use as set out herein; that the Leased Premises presently are zoned for the use
contemplated herein and throughout the term of this lease may continue to be so used
therefore by virtue of said zoning, under the doctrine of “non-conforming use”, or valid and
binding decision of appropriate authority, except, however, that said representation and
warranty by Landlord shall not be applicable in the event that Tenant’s act or omission shall
invalidate the application of said zoning, the doctrine of “non-conforming use” or the valid and
binding decision of the appropriate authority. Landlord shall furnish without expense to
Lease Agreement
Page 12 of 19
Tenant, within [NUMBER] days after written request therefore by Tenant, a title report
covering the Leased Premises showing the condition of title as of the date of such certificate,
provided, however, that Landlord’s obligation hereunder shall be limited to the furnishing of
only one such title report.
d. Licenses: It shall be the Tenant’s responsibility to obtain any and all necessary licenses and
the Landlord shall bear no responsibility therefore; the Tenant shall promptly notify Landlord
of the fact that it has obtained the necessary licenses in order to prevent any delay to
Landlord in commencing construction of the Leased Premises.
25. EXTENSIONS/WAIVERS/DISPUTES
a. Extension Period: Any extension hereof shall be subject to the provisions of Article c)
hereof.
b. Holding Over: In the event that Tenant or anyone claiming under Tenant shall continue
occupancy of the Leased Premises after the expiration of the term of this Lease or any
renewal or extension thereof without any agreement in writing between Landlord and Tenant
with respect thereto, such occupancy shall not be deemed to extend or renew the term of the
Lease, but such occupancy shall continue as a tenancy at will, from month to month, upon
the covenants, provisions and conditions herein contained. The rental shall be the rental in
effect during the term of this Lease as extended or renewed, prorated and payable for the
period of such occupancy.
c. Waivers: Failure of either party to complain of any act or omission on the part of the other
party, no matter how long the same may continue, shall not be deemed to be a waiver by
said party of any of its rights hereunder. No waiver by either party at any time, express or
implied, of any breach of any provision of this Lease shall be deemed a waiver of a breach of
any other provision of this Lease or a consent to any subsequent breach of the same or any
other provision. If any action by either party shall require the consent or approval of the other
party, the other party’s consent to or approval of such action on any one occasion shall not be
deemed a consent to or approval of said action on any subsequent occasion or a consent to
or approval of any other action on the same or any subsequent occasion. Any and all rights
and remedies which either party may have under this Lease or by operation of law, either at
law or in equity, upon any breach, shall be distinct, separate and cumulative and shall not be
deemed inconsistent with each other, and no one of them, whether exercised by said party or
not, shall be deemed to be an exclusion of any other; and any two or more or all of such
rights and remedies may be exercised at the same time.
d. Disputes: It is agreed that, if at any time a dispute shall arise as to any amount or sum of
money to be paid by one party to the other under the provisions hereof, the party against
whom the obligation to pay the money is asserted shall have the right to make payment
“under protest” and such payment shall not be regarded as a voluntary payment and there
shall survive the right on the part of the said party to institute suit for the recovery of such
sum. If it shall be adjudged that there was no legal obligation on the part of said party to pay
such sum or any part thereof, said party shall be entitled to recover such sum or so much
thereof as it was not legally required to pay under the provisions of this Lease. If at any time a
dispute shall arise between the parties hereto as to any work to be performed by either of
them under the provisions hereof, the party against whom the obligation to perform the work
is asserted may perform such work and pay the costs thereof “under protest” and the
performance of such work shall in no event be regarded as a voluntary performance and shall
survive the right on the part of the said party to institute suit for the recovery of the costs of
such work. If it shall be adjudged that there was no legal obligation on the part of the said
party to perform the same or any part thereof, said party shall be entitled to recover the costs
of such work or the cost of so much thereof as said party was not legally required to perform
Lease Agreement
Page 13 of 19
under the provisions of this Lease and the amount so paid by Tenant may be withheld or
deducted by Tenant from any rents herein reserved.
e. Tenant’s Right to cure Landlord’s Default: In the event that Landlord shall fail, refuse or
neglect to pay any mortgages, liens or encumbrances, the judicial sale of which might affect
the interest of Tenant hereunder, or shall fail, refuse or neglect to pay any interest due or
payable on any such mortgage, lien or encumbrance, Tenant may pay said mortgages, liens
or encumbrances, or interest or perform said conditions and charge to Landlord the amount
so paid and withhold and deduct from any rents herein reserved such amounts so paid, and
any excess over and above the amounts of said rents shall be paid by Landlord to Tenant.
f.
Notices: All notices and other communications authorized or required hereunder shall be in
writing and shall be given by mailing the same by certified mail, return receipt requested,
postage prepaid, and any such notice or other communication shall be deemed to have been
given when received by the party to whom such notice or other communication shall be
addressed. If intended for Landlord the same will be mailed to the address herein above set
forth or such other address as Landlord may hereafter designate by notice to Tenant, and if
intended for Tenant, the same shall be mailed to Tenant at the address herein above set
forth, or such other address or addresses as Tenant may hereafter designate by notice to
Landlord.
26. PROPERTY DAMAGE
a. Loss and Damage: Notwithstanding any contrary provisions of this Lease, Landlord shall not
be responsible for any loss of or damage to property of Tenant or of others located on the
Leased Premises, except where caused by the willful act or omission or negligence of
Landlord, or Landlord’s agents, employees or contractors, provided, however, that if Tenant
shall notify Landlord in writing of repairs which are the responsibility of Landlord under Article
VII hereof, and Landlord shall fail to commence and diligently prosecute to completion said
repairs promptly after such notice, and if after the giving of such notice and the occurrence of
such failure, loss of or damage to Tenant’s property shall result from the condition as to which
Landlord has been notified, Landlord shall indemnify and hold harmless Tenant from any
loss, cost or expense arising there from.
b. Force Majeure: In the event that Landlord or Tenant shall be delayed or hindered in or
prevented from the performance of any act other than Tenant’s obligation to make payments
of rent, additional rent, and other charges required hereunder, by reason of strikes, lockouts,
unavailability of materials, failure of power, restrictive governmental laws or regulations, riots,
insurrections, the act, failure to act, or default of the other party, war or other reason beyond
its control, then performance of such act shall be excused for the period of the delay and the
period for the performance of such act shall be extended for a period equivalent to the period
of such delay. Notwithstanding the foregoing, lack of funds shall not be deemed to be a
cause beyond control of either party.
27. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING
Under the terms and conditions hereunder, Tenant shall have the absolute right to transfer and assign
this lease or to sublet all or any portion of the Leased Premises or to cease operating Tenant’s business
on the Leased Premises provided that at the time of such assignment or sublease Tenant shall not be in
default in the performance and observance of the obligations imposed upon Tenant hereunder, and in the
event that Tenant assigns or sublets this property for an amount in excess of the rental amount then
being paid, then Landlord shall require as further consideration for the granting of the right to assign or
sublet, a sum equal to [%] of the difference between the amount of rental to be charged by Tenant to
Lease Agreement
Page 14 of 19
Tenant’s subtenant or assignee and the amount provided for herein, payable in a manner consistent with
the method of payment by the subtenant or assignee to the Tenant, and/or [%] of the consideration paid

hereafter by or at the expense of Tenant and all additions and/or improvements, exclusive of structural,
mechanical, electrical, and plumbing, affixed to the Leased Premises and used in the operation of the
Tenant’s business made to, in or on the Leased Premises by and at the expense of Tenant and
susceptible of being removed from the Leased Premises without damage, unless such damage be
repaired by Tenant, shall remain the property of Tenant and Tenant may, but shall not be obligated to,
remove the same or any part thereof at any time or times during the term hereof, provided that Tenant, at
its sole cost and expense, shall make any repairs occasioned by such removal.
29. OPTION TO RENEW

expiration of the term of this Lease agreement at a rental of [AMOUNT] per month, with all other terms

31. INVALIDITY OF PARTICULAR PROVISION

extent, be held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease, or the application of such term or
provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is held invalid or unenforceable,

the fullest extent permitted by law.

all of its other obligations under the terms and provisions of this Lease.

may deem necessary for the good or benefit of the Premises or any building of which they are a
part. As of and during the last ninety (90) days of this Lease, the Lessor shall have the right to post
and/or display a “For Rent” sign on the Premises.

civil commotion, and act of God, or any other event beyond the control of the Lessor or Lessee,
with the exception for non-availability of funds, the party shall not be in breach of this Agreement

Lessee shall remove or cause to be removed from the roof any such cooling tower, equipment or
structure if directed to do so by the Lessor. Lessee shall promptly repair, at its expense, any
damages resulting from such removal. At the termination of this lease, Lessee shall deliver the

to the utility company by the Lessee unless interruption results from bona fide repairs,
construction, or an emergency. If any utility services furnished by the Lessor are interrupted and
continue to be interrupted despite the good faith efforts of Lessor to remedy the same, Lessor shall
not be liable in any respect for damages to the person or property of Lessee or Lessee’s employees,
agents, or guests and same shall not be construed as grounds for constructive eviction or abatement
of rent. Lessor shall use reasonable diligence to repair and remedy such interruption promptly.
LEGAL REQUIREMENTS
The Lessee shall comply with all laws, orders, ordinances and other public requirements now and
hereafter affecting the Premises or the use thereof, and the Lessee shall indemnify, defend and
hold harmless the Lessor from any expense or damage resulting from the failure to do so.
FIXTURES
With the exception for Lessee’s personal property and trade fixtures, all buildings, repairs,
alterations, additions, improvements, installation and other non-trade fixtures installed or erected
on the Premises, whether by or at the expense of the Lessor or Lessee, shall belong to the Lessor
and shall remain on and be surrendered with the Premises at the expiration or termination of this
Lease. However, the Lessor shall retain the option to permit the Lessee to remove their alterations
or improvements prior to the expiration of this Lease and return the Premise to its original
condition.
REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE
The Lessor shall maintain the foundation, exterior walls (with the exception of glass; windows;
doors; door closure devices; window and door frames; molding; locks and hardware) and exterior
painting or other treatment of exterior walls, and the roof of the leased Premises in good repair
except that the Lessor shall not be required to make any repairs resulting from the negligence or
acts of negligence on the behalf of the Lessee, its staff, employees, sublessees, licensees and
concessionaires. The Lessee shall be responsible for maintenance of the common areas and
common area equipment and furnishings. Any such repairs and/or maintenance in which the
Lessor would be responsible, the Lessee agrees to provide Lessor with written notice of the needed
repairs and/or maintenance, and Lessor shall ensure that any repairs and/or maintenance shall be
made and completed within a reasonable time frame. Lessee shall notify the Lessor of any
emergency repairs to be made. Lessee shall keep the interior of the leased Premises in good, clean
and workable condition and shall, at its sole expense, make all needed repairs and replacements,
including replacement of cracked or broken glass, windows, doors, door closure devices, door and
window frames, molding, locks and hardware, except for repairs and replacements required to be
made by the Lessor under this section.
In the event that any repairs required to be made by the Lessee hereunder are not made within
____________________ days after written notice delivered to the Lessee by the Lessor, the Lessor
shall reserve the right and option to make or have said repairs made without liability to the Lessor
for any loss or damage which may result by reason of such repairs, and that Lessee shall pay to the
Lessor, upon demand as additional rent hereunder, the cost of such repairs plus. At the termination
of this Lease, Lessee shall deliver the leased premises in good order and condition, normal wear
and tear excepted. Normal wear and tear meaning the deterioration which results from normal use
and not as an act of carelessness, neglect, accident or abuse.
EMINENT DOMAIN
In the event that the Premises are taken under the power of eminent domain or a conveyance in
lieu thereof by any authority having the right of condemnation, or if a portion thereof is taken so
that the Premises are unsuitable, in the Lessee’s reasonable opinion, for Lessee’s use, then the term
of this lease shall terminate as of the date that title shall vest in the acquiring authority, and the
rent and other charges shall be adjusted as of the date of such taking. In such case, the Lessor shall
be entitled to the proceeds of the condemnation award made to the Lessor. Nothing herein shall be
construed to prevent the Lessee from separately pursuing a claim against the condemning authority
for its independent loss or damages to the extent available, provided however, that no award made
to or on behalf of the Lessee shall reduce, limit, or restrict the award to the Lessor, and no allocation
of the Lessor’s award in condemnation shall occur. The Lessee shall have no claim against the
Lessor for the value of the unexpired term of this Lease. Should any part of the Premises be taken
in the exercise of eminent domain or a conveyance in lieu thereof or in connection therewith, but
not such as to render the Premises unsuitable for the operation of Lessee’s business, this Lease
shall continue on the same terms and conditions except that the description of the Premises or the
real estate taken by right of eminent domain or conveyance in lieu thereof or in connection
therewith shall be modified to reflect such taking. In the event this Lease does not terminate by
reason of such taking, the condemnation proceeds from the ‘Demised Premises’ will first be used
to restore the Premises to a position of occupancy by the Lessee. The balance of such
condemnation proceeds from the Premises, if any, shall belong to the Lessor.
WAIVER OF SUBROGATION
