Limitation on Further Encumbrances; Existing Condition. City agrees that, after the Effective Date, and during the pendency of this Agreement, City shall not voluntarily agree to or impose any additional liens, encumbrances, easements, covenants, or restrictions on or against the Property without Buyer’s prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed – provided however that Buyer understands that the foregoing does not restrict or prohibit the City or any other governmental entity or agencies from exercising any right available under federal, state, or local law, rule, or regulation. City agrees, during the pendency of this Agreement, and unless otherwise approved in writing by Buyer (Buyer’s approval not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed), to keep the Property in the condition and state that currently exists as of the Effective Date (subject to Buyer’s duties under ¶13 and ¶14 above). Buyer must keep the Property free from any liens or encumbrances being attached to or asserted against the Property by any person or entity furnishing labor, services, or materials to the Proeprty on behalf of, or at the request, or at the direction of Buyer (or by anyone claiming by, through, or under Buyer, or by anyone acting on behalf of, or at the direction of Buyer), and from any liens or encumbrances arising as a result of Buyer’s conduct or failure to act, or as a result of Buyer’s entry rights hereunder. Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold City harmless against any such lien or encumbrance, or claims therefore, being asserted against the Property, and Buyer must, at its expense, promptly discharge and cause the release of any such lien or encumbrance. If Buyer closes on and acquires the Property, Buyer shall be fully responsible for any liens or encumbrances asserted against the Property.
