mortgage or deed of trust lien presently existing or hereafter created upon the Building (provided, however, that any such mortgagee may, at any time, subordinate such mortgage, deed of trust or other lien to this Lease) and to any renewals thereof.
If the interests of Lessor under this Lease are transferred by reason of foreclosure or other proceedings for enforcement of any such first mortgage or deed of trust lien on the Building who has executed a non-disturbance agreement as provided
above, Lessee agrees to be bound to the transferee (sometimes called the “Purchaser”) under the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease for the balance of the Term remaining, including any extensions or renewals, with the same force
and effect as if the Purchaser were Lessor under this Lease, and Lessee agrees to attorn to the Purchaser, including the mortgagee under any such first mortgage or deed of trust if it be the Purchaser, as its Lessor. The Purchaser shall maintain
existence of and perform all of Lessor’s obligations under this Lease, in accordance with its terms, covenants and conditions and those of the non-disturbance agreement.
9.04 Estoppel Certificates. Lessee agrees to furnish within ten (10) business days after receipt of a request from Lessor, Lessor’s mortgagee or any potential purchaser of the Building or
the Project, a statement certifying, if applicable and true and to Lessee’s best actual knowledge, the following: Lessee is in possession of the Leased Premises; the Leased Premises are acceptable; the Lease is in full force and effect; the
Lease is unmodified, or stating any modifications; and such other matters as may be reasonably required by Lessor, Lessor’s mortgagee or any potential purchaser. Lessee may qualify and/or explain any statement therein for the purpose of clarity
DEFAULT AND REMEDIES
10.01 Default by Lessee. The following are
events of default by Lessee under this Lease:
(a) Lessee shall fail to pay when due any installment of Monthly Rent and the
continuance of such failure for ten (10) days after Lessee’s receipt of written notice thereof;
(b) Lessee shall
fail to comply with any term, provision or covenant of this Lease, other than the payment of Monthly Rent or additional Rent and the failure is not cured within thirty (30) days after Lessee’s receipt of written notice thereof, except, if
such failure to
comply concerns matters of such a nature they are not reasonably susceptible of cure within such thirty (30) day period, in which case the period of cure shall be extended so long as Lessee
commences its efforts to cure within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently pursues completion of same;
(c) Lessee files (or causes to be filed) a petition or is adjudged bankrupt or insolvent under any applicable federal or state bankruptcy
or insolvency law; or a receiver or trustee is appointed for all or substantially all of the assets of Lessee; or Lessee makes a transfer in fraud of creditors or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors; or
(d) Lessee does or permits to be done any act which results in a lien or claim of lien being filed against the Leased Premises or the
Building and/or the Project and the same is not released or otherwise addressed by indemnity or escrow within thirty (30) days after Lessee receives written notice thereof.
10.02 Remedies for Lessee’s Default. Upon the occurrence of any event of default set forth in this Lease, Lessor is entitled
to pursue any one or more of the remedies set forth herein at any time following such event or events of default without, except to the extent otherwise provided, any notice or demand to Lessee or any other person or entity or lender.
(a) Without declaring the Lease terminated, Lessor may enter upon and take possession of the Leased Premises, and subject to compliance
with Kansas law, expel or remove Lessee and any other person who may be occupying all or any part of the Leased Premises, and relet the Leased Premises on behalf of Lessee and receive the Rent directly by reason of the reletting. Lessee agrees to
pay Lessor on demand any deficiency that may arise by reason of any reletting of the Leased Premises.
(b) Without declaring
the Lease terminated, Lessor may enter upon the Leased Premises, subject to compliance with Kansas law, and do whatever Lessee is obligated to do under the terms of this Lease. Lessee agrees to reimburse Lessor on demand for any expenses which
Lessor may incur in effecting compliance with Lessee’s obligations under this Lease; further, Lessee agrees that Lessor is not liable for any damages resulting to Lessee from effecting compliance with Lessee’s obligations under this Lease
except those caused by the negligence of Lessor.
(c) Lessor may terminate this Lease, in which event Lessee shall immediately
surrender the Leased Premises to Lessor, and if Lessee fails to surrender the Leased Premises to Lessor, Lessor may, without prejudice to any other remedy which it may have for possession or arrearage in Rent, after complying with applicable Kansas
law, enter upon and take possession of the Leased Premises, by picking or changing locks if necessary, and lockout, and expel or remove Lessee and any other person who may be occupying all or any part of the Leased Premises. Lessee agrees to pay on
demand the amount of all loss and damage which Lessor may suffer by reason of the termination of this Lease under this Article 10, including without limitation, loss and damage due to the failure of Lessee to maintain and or repair the Leased
Premises as required hereunder. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Lease to the contrary, this Lease may be terminated by Lessor only by mailing or delivering written notice of such termination to Lessee, and no other act or omission of
Lessor constitutes a termination of this Lease. In no event shall Lessor have the right to terminate this Lease upon an event of default unless Lessor has provided, in the event Lessee has not cured any such event of default after notice, Lessee
shall fail to cure the same within fifteen (15) business days after receipt by Lessee of such second notice from Lessor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lessor’s damages shall be limited to actual damages, and under no circumstance shall
Lessee be liable for consequential or punitive damages.
(d) Lessee may cure defaults and bring this Lease to a current
condition by tender of performance any time prior to termination of this Lease by Lessor.
10.03 Early Termination. In the event that Lessor desires to terminate prior to the
end of the Term, Lessee shall pay a termination charge equal to the costs incurred by Lessor in returning the space to a condition suitable for use by other parties, plus One Hundred Percent (100%) of the monthly Fee for the terminated Leased
Premises for the number of months remaining under the Lease Agreement, without any requirement for mitigation of damages. Such termination fees are not penalties, but due to the difficulty in estimating actual damages for early termination, are
agreed upon charges to fairly compensate Lessor.
10.04 Lessor Care. Lessor shall take all action required to protect
and cause any employee, agent, officer, manager, contractor, subcontractor or other person or entity entering the Leased Premises by or through Lessor to protect the privacy of any occupant and the confidentiality of any information within the
10.05 No Election. Lessor or Lessee’s pursuit of any remedy specified in this Lease will not
constitute an election to pursue that remedy only, nor preclude such party from pursuing any other remedy available at law or in equity, nor constitute a forfeiture or waiver of any Rent or other amount due to the other as described herein.
10.06 Default by Lessor. The following shall be deemed to be events of default by Lessor under this Lease:
(i) Lessor shall fail to comply with any warranty, representation, term, provision or covenant of this Lease, and the failure is not cured within thirty (30) days after written notice to Lessor, provided, however, if such failure is not
susceptible of cure within such thirty (30) day period, and, within such thirty (30) day period, Lessor commences the required action and continues to pursue such action diligently and without interruption thereafter, Lessor shall have
such additional time as is reasonably necessary under the circumstances, but the failure must in any event be cured within ninety (90) days after such written notice to Lessor, (ii) Lessor shall file a petition or be adjudged bankrupt or
insolvent under any applicable federal or state bankruptcy or insolvency law or a receiver or trustee shall be appointed for all or substantially all of the assets of Lessor, or Lessor shall make a transfer in fraud of creditors or shall make an
assignment for the benefit of creditors
10.07 Lessee Remedies. Upon the occurrence of any event of default by Lessor,
in addition to other remedies available under law or equity, Lessee shall have the option to (i) cure such default and invoice Lessor the reasonable cost incurred by Lessee in so doing, and offset such invoiced amount from the Rent hereunder if
Lessor fails to pay such amount within thirty (30) days after the date of such invoice; and/or (ii) seek an order from a court for specific performance to cure such default, and the reasonable cost incurred by Lessee shall be invoiced to
Lessor, and shall be offset against the Rent hereunder if not paid within thirty (30) days after the date of such invoice
11.01 Act of God or Force Majeure. An “act of God” or “force majeure” is defined for purposes of this Lease as strikes, lockouts, sit-downs, material or labor restrictions by
any governmental authority, unusual transportation delays, riots, floods, washouts, explosions, earthquakes, fire, storms, weather (including wet grounds or inclement weather which prevents construction), acts of the public enemy, wars,
insurrections and any other cause not reasonably within the control of Lessor or Lessee and which by the exercise of due diligence neither Lessor nor Lessee is unable, wholly or in part, to prevent or overcome.
11.02 Building. “Building” as used in this Lease means the Building, the land, including parking lots surrounding the
11.03 Commencement Date. “Commencement Date” means the date set forth in
Section 1.03. The Commencement Date constitutes the commencement of the Term for all purposes, whether or not Lessee has actually taken possession.
11.04 Square Feet. “Square feet” or “square foot” as used in this Lease includes the area contained within the Leased Premises stipulated in Article 1.01 above.
12.01 Waiver. Failure of either party to declare an event of default immediately upon its occurrence, or delay in taking any action in connection with an event of default, does not constitute a
waiver of the default, and the non-defaulting party is entitled to declare the default at any time and take such action as is lawful or authorized under this Lease. Pursuit of any one or more of the remedies set forth in Article 10.00 above or any
other part of this Lease, at law or in equity does not preclude pursuit of any one or more of the other remedies provided elsewhere in this Lease or provided at law or in equity, nor does pursuit of any remedy constitute forfeiture or waiver of any
Rent or damages accruing to either party by reason of the violation of any of the terms, provisions or covenants of this Lease. Failure by either party to enforce one or more of the remedies provided upon an event of default shall not be deemed or
construed to constitute a waiver of the default or of any other violation or breach of any of the terms, provisions and covenants contained in this Lease.
12.02 Act of God or Force Majeure. Neither party to this Lease is required to perform any covenant or obligation in this Lease, or be liable in damages to the other, so long as the performance or
non-performance of the covenant or obligation is delayed, caused or prevented by an act of God, force majeure or by the acts or omissions of the other party.
12.03 Attorney’s Fees. If either party defaults in the performance of any of the terms, covenants, agreements or conditions contained in this Lease and the matter is placed in the hands of an
attorney for the enforcement of all or any part of this Lease, the non-prevailing party agrees to pay the prevailing party’s costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, for the services of the attorney and other out-of-pocket
expenses incurred in connection therewith.
12.04 Successors. This Lease is binding upon and inures to the benefit of
Lessor and Lessee and their respective successors and assigns.
12.05 Fees Tax. If applicable in the jurisdiction where
the Leased Premises are situated, Lessee shall pay and be liable for all sales and use taxes or other similar taxes on rent, if any, except for those taxes of any kind being in the nature of an income tax on any fees paid to Lessor, which shall be
paid by Lessor, levied or imposed by any city, state, county or other governmental body having authority, such payments to be in addition to all other payments required to be paid to Lessor by Lessee under the terms of this Lease. Any such payment
must be paid concurrently with the payment of the Rent, operating expenses or other charge upon which the tax is based as set forth above.
12.06 Captions. The captions appearing in this Lease are inserted only as a matter of convenience and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or intent of any section.
12.07 Notice. All Rent and other payments required to be made by Lessee shall be paid to Lessor at the address set forth in
Section 1.05. All payments required to be made by Lessor to Lessee are payable to Lessee at the address set forth in Section 1.05 or at any other address within the United States as Lessee may specify from time to time by written notice.
For purposes hereof, any notice or document required or permitted to be delivered by the terms of this Lease (other than delivery of Rent payments) will be deemed to be delivered upon the earlier
of actual receipt, or (whether or not actually received) on the first (1st) business day after being deposited with a reputable overnight courier (such as Federal Express, UPS or similar
courier) or the third (3rd) day after being deposited
in the United States Mail, postage prepaid, certified mail, return receipt requested, addressed to the parties at the respective addresses set forth in Section 1.05. Rent payments are deemed received only upon actual receipt. Unless
specifically authorized herein, any notice delivered via facsimile transmission will not satisfy a requirement to give notice under the terms of this Lease.
12.08 Submission of Lease. Submission of this Lease for signature does not constitute a reservation of space or an option or offer to Lease. This Lease is not deemed effective until execution by
and delivery to both Lessor and Lessee.
12.09 Severability. If any provision of this Lease or the application thereof
to any person or circumstance is rendered invalid or unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of this Lease and the application of such provisions to other persons or circumstances remain unaffected thereby and continue to be enforced to the
greatest extent permitted by law.
12.10 Notices to Mortgagees. Provided that Lessee has received prior written notice
of the name and address of such lender, Lessee shall serve written notice of any claimed default or breach by Lessor under this Lease upon any lender which is a beneficiary under any deed of trust or mortgage against the Leased Premises, Lessee
agrees to allow such lender during the same period to cure such default or breach as is afforded Lessor; provided, in the event it is necessary for said lender to foreclose on the property of which the Leased Premises are a part in order to cure
such default, lender will be entitled to such additional time as is necessary to cure such default provided such default is cured within sixty (60) days from receipt of Lessee’s notice of default.
12.11 Recordation. Lessee shall not record this Lease without the prior written consent of Lessor; however, a memorandum of this
Lease may be recorded in the real estate records in the county where the Leased Premises is located at the request of either party.
12.12 Counterparts. This Lease may be executed in two or more counterparts, and it is not necessary that any one of the counterparts be executed by all of the parties hereto. Each fully or
partially executed counterpart constitutes an original, but all such counterparts taken together constitute but one and the same instrument.
12.13 Governing Law/Venue. THIS LEASE SHALL BE CONSTRUED UNDER AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE WHERE THE BUILDING IS LOCATED AND THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AS APPLICABLE
TO TRANSACTIONS WITHIN THE STATE WHERE THE BUILDING IS LOCATED. LESSOR AND LESSEE HEREBY SUBMIT TO THE JURISDICTION OF ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION SITTING IN SUCH COUNTY AND STATE WHERE THE BUILDING IS LOCATED.
12.14 Broker. Lessee represents and warrants that Lessee has dealt with no broker. Lessee shall indemnify and hold Lessor harmless
from and against all claims (and costs of defending against and investigating such claims) of any other broker or similar parties claiming under Lessee in connection with this Lease. Lessor represents and warrants that Lessor has dealt with no
broker. Lessor shall indemnify and hold Lessee harmless from and against all claims (and costs of defending against and investigating such claims) of any broker or similar parties claiming under Lessor in connection with this Lease.
12.15 Construction of Lease. It is agreed that, in the construction and interpretation of the terms of this Lease, the rule of
construction that a document is to be construed most strictly against the party who prepared the same will not be applied, it being agreed that both parties hereto have participated in the preparation of the final form of this Lease. Wherever in
provision is made for liquidated damages, it is because the parties hereto acknowledge and agree that the determination of actual damages (of which such liquidated damages are in lieu) is
speculative and difficult to determine; the parties agree that liquidated damages herein are not a penalty.
12.16 Time of
Essence. With respect to all required acts under this Lease, time is of the essence of this Lease.
12.17 Building Name
and Address. Lessee reserves the right at any time to change the name by which the Building is designated and its address, and Lessee has no obligation or liability whatsoever for costs or expenses incurred by Lessor as a result of such name
change or address change of the Building.
12.18 Taxes and Lessee’s Property. Lessee is solely liable for all
taxes levied or assessed against Lessee’s personal property, furniture or fixtures placed by Lessee in the Premises.
12.19 Constructive Eviction. Lessee shall not be entitled to claim a constructive eviction from the Leased Premises unless Lessee
has first notified Lessor in writing of the condition giving rise thereto, and, if the complaints are justified, unless Lessor has failed to remedy such conditions with a reasonable time after receipt of said notice.
12.20 Confidentiality. Lessee shall not disclose the terms of this Agreement to anyone not a party to the Agreement.
12.21 ARBITRATION. ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THE PARTIES WILL BE SUBMITTED TO BINDING ARBITRATION UNDER THE COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES
(THE “RULES”) OF THE American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). THE DECISION OF THE ARBITRATOR(S) WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING ON THE PARTIES AND MAY BE ENTERED AND ENFORCED IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION BY EITHER PARTY.
AMENDMENT AND LIMITATION OF WARRANTIES
