Subtenant shall be responsible for all damage and/or injury done to the Subleased Premises or to the Building during the Term by Subtenant or by its employees, agents, independent contractors, invitees, or customer. Subtenant is responsible for its janitorial service in the Subleased Premises. Subtenant assumes responsibility and shall pay for all utilities exclusively serving the Subleased Premises=and agrees to be directly billed by the applicable utility companies, when possible, pursuant to the terms of the Principal Lease.
Subletting/Assignment. Subtenant shall not, by operation of law or otherwise, assign this Sublease to, or further sublet to or permit the use or occupancy of all or any part of the Subleased Premises by any other party without the prior written consent of Sublandlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.

Sublandlord’s Obligations. Sublandlord agrees that Subtenant shall be entitled to receive all services and repairs provided by Overlandlord under the Principal Lease, and that Sublandlord will cooperate with Subtenant, at Subtenant’s sole cost and expense, to cause Overlandlord to perform Overlandlord’s obligations under the Principal Lease with respect to the Subleased Premises, so long as Subtenant is not in default hereunder beyond any applicable notice and cure period. It is expressly agreed by the parties, however, that Sublandlord does not assume any obligation to perform the terms, covenants, and conditions contained in the Principal Lease on the part of Overlandlord under the Principal Lease to be performed, or any liability for the accuracy of any warranty or representation made by Overlandlord under Principal Lease and that Subtenant shall look solely to Overlandlord for the performance of such obligations and the inaccuracy of any such warranties or representations.
Release from Liability. Neither Sublandlord nor any of its officers, agents, or employees shall be liable for any injury, loss, or damage to persons or property, sustained by Subtenant or any other person or other entity due to (i) the Subleased Premises, the Building or any
part or appurtenances of either being or becoming out of repair, (ii) the happening of any accident in or about the Subleased Premises or the building unless caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of Sublandlord or any of its officers, agents or employees, or (iii) any act or neglect of any tenant or occupant of the Building or of any other person or other entity, other than Sublandlord, its officers, agents or employees.
Right to Cure. If Subtenant fails to fulfill any of its obligations under this Sublease including, but not limited to, its obligations to maintain and repair the Subleased Premises, which failure continues for more than 20 days after written notice to Subtenant (except in case of emergency where no notice and cure period shall be afforded Subtenant) then Sublandlord or Overlandlord may, at its option, fulfill such obligation on Subtenant’s behalf and Subtenant shall upon demand reimburse Sublandlord for all reasonable expenditures, fines or damages (other than indirect or consequential damages) sustained by Sublandlord due to Subtenant’s noncompliance with or nonperformance or breach of any of the terms, covenants, or conditions of this Sublease or of the Principal Lease as incorporated herein.

from time to time, and shall contain a waiver of all rights of subrogation as such companies may have against Sublandlord and Overlandlord.
Subtenant shall not store upon the Subleased Premises any materials or use the Subleased Premises in any manner that may result in an increase in Sublandlord’s and/or Overlandlord’s premiums for the fire or casualty insurance insuring the Building or Subleased Premises. Without limiting the foregoing, in the event that Subtenant’s storage of materials upon or use of the same at the Subleased Premises results in an increase in said premiums, Subtenant shall pay to Sublandlord or Overlandlord, as the case may be, a sum equal to the amount of such increase following delivery to Subtenant of reasonably detailed information evidencing that Subtenant’s actions were the cause of such increase in premiums.

The terms and provisions of this Section 13 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Term.
Consents. The parties agree that this Sublease shall not become effective for any purpose unless and until it has been consented to in writing by Overlandlord and by any other entitles whose consent is required under the Principal Lease (“Third Parties”). Sublandlord shall reasonably promptly after receipt of fully executed copies of this Sublease submit the same to Overlandlord and any Third Parties for its/their consent; provided, however, that Sublandlord shall not in any event be liable to Subtenant for any failure to obtain same. Subtenant shall fully cooperate with Sublandlord and Overlandlord and any Third Parties in order to obtain the necessary consent(s) including, but not limited to, promptly supplying such information and/or documentation as Overlandlord and/or any Third Parties may request in connection therewith.

Sublandlord exercises its option to extend the period within which such consent(s) must be obtained as noted below, within 90 days after full execution and delivery of this Sublease) then either party may, upon notice to the other, cancel this Sublease, provided the party wishing to cancel has fully complied with its agreements and obligations under this Section. Upon such cancellation Sublandlord shall, so long as Subtenant has not occupied the Subleased Premises for any purposes, refund to Subtenant any item of rent or additional rent paid by Subtenant, and Sublandlord and Subtenant shall be entirely relieved of any further obligations under this Sublease other than the terms and provisions of Section 13 of this Sublease which shall survive such cancellation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, (i) Sublandlord shall have the unilateral right at its option, to extend for an additional 45 days the period for obtaining the necessary consent(s); and (ii) Subtenant shall have no responsibility for any costs or expenses of Sublandlord or Overlandlord in connection with request for Overlandlord’s consent to this Sublease.
In all provisions of the Principal Lease requiring the approval or consent of Overlandlord or any Third Parties, Subtenant shall only request the approval or consent of Sublandlord and, thereafter, if Sublandlord grants its approval, Subtenant shall apply to Overlandlord and/or any Third Parties for such consent,
