Purchaser shall have the right during the Due Diligence Period to obtain an updated survey (the “Updated Survey”). Any Updated Survey obtained by Purchaser shall be prepared by a duly licensed surveyor, in accordance with the ALTA/ACSM Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for Land Title Surveys, certified to Seller, Purchaser and the Title Company, and shall otherwise be in accordance with such standards as are required by the Title Company in order to issue the Title Policy. In the event Purchaser does not obtain an Updated Survey prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period and the Title Company determines that the Existing Survey is insufficient to permit the Title Company to remove or insure over any survey exception in the Title Commitment, then Seller shall have no obligation to cause the Title Company to remove or insure over any such survey exception, and such exception shall constitute a Permitted Exception.

 

5.3         Exceptions to Title.

 

5.3.1.     Permitted Exceptions. As used herein, “Permitted Exceptions” shall mean (i) current non-delinquent real property taxes, (ii) all Lender’s Liens, (iii) the rights and interests of customers and guests at the Hotel to occupy rooms on a transient license basis, (iv) the rights of tenants under the Tenant Leases, as tenants only, pursuant to the Tenant Leases, (v) all Encumbrances caused or created by any Purchaser Indemnitee, (vi) any other exceptions set forth in the Title Commitment other than Unpermitted Exceptions.

 

 17 

 

 

5.3.2.     Unpermitted Exceptions. Seller agrees that the following shall constitute unpermitted exceptions: (i) any mortgages, deeds of trust, monetary encumbrance or other security interests for any financing or other Encumbrances requiring the payment of money, other than Lender’s Liens and any other Encumbrances which are expressly assumed by Purchaser under this Agreement, (ii) mechanics’ liens for work performed by, through or under Seller or Manager prior to Closing, (iii) any mortgages, deeds of trust, monetary encumbrances or other security interests for any financing or other Encumbrances on the Real Property incurred by any third party which Seller agrees in writing to satisfy at or prior to Closing and (iv) Taxes which constitute an Encumbrance on the Real Property which would be delinquent if unpaid at Closing; provided, however, that if any such Taxes are payable in installments, such obligation shall apply only to the extent such installments would be delinquent if unpaid at Closing (collectively, the “Unpermitted Exceptions”).

 

5.3.3.     New Exceptions to Title.

 

(a)      Purchaser’s New Objections. To the extent the Real Property is encumbered after the Effective Date and prior to the Closing without the approval of Purchaser, and such encumbrance is not a Permitted Exception, (a “New Exception”), upon receipt of written notice of any such New Exception, Purchaser shall have five (5) Business Days to review such New Exception and provide written notice to Seller with any objections to such New Exception (the “Purchaser’s New Objections”); provided, however, Purchaser agrees that it shall not have the right to object to any of the matters described in Section 5.3.1 that constitute Permitted Exceptions. To the extent Purchaser receives written notice of any New Exception less than five (5) Business Days prior to Closing, Purchaser shall be entitled to a reasonable adjournment of the Closing in order to review such New Exception and evaluate Seller’s Response in accordance with and within the times frames set forth in Section 5.3.3(a) and Section 5.3.3(b). Unless Purchaser notifies Seller in writing that it objects to a New Exception within the foregoing time period, each such New Exception shall automatically constitute a Permitted Exception.

 

(b)      Seller’s Response. Not later than five (5) Business Days after receipt of a Purchaser’s New Objection, but in any event prior to the Closing Date (unless Closing is extended pursuant to Section 5.3.3(a)), Seller shall, in its sole discretion, either: (i) notify Purchaser of its intention (the “Seller’s Response”) to attempt to Remove, as defined herein, the New Exception(s) listed in the Purchaser’s New Objections, or (ii) notify Purchaser that Seller does not intend to attempt to Remove any such matter. If Seller does not provide Seller’s Response to Purchaser within such time period, Seller shall be deemed to have elected not to attempt to Remove Purchaser’s New Objections. If Seller elects (or is deemed to have elected) not to Remove one or more of the New Exceptions, then not more than five (5) Business Days after receipt of Seller’s Response (but in any event not later than the Closing Date), Purchaser shall by written notice to Seller either: (x) terminate this Agreement, or (y) waive the existence of such New Exception, in which case, any such New Exception shall automatically constitute a Permitted Exception. Purchaser’s failure to respond within said five (5) Business Day period shall constitute Purchaser’s election to proceed under clause (y). If Seller elects to attempt to Remove any New Exception, then Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to attempt to cure any such New Exception on or before the Closing Date. If at any time Seller notifies Purchaser that Seller will be unable or is unwilling to cure any such New Exception, then Purchaser shall, within five (5) Business Days after receipt of such notification, either terminate this Agreement or waive any such New Exception, in which case, any such New Exception shall automatically constitute a Permitted Exception. Purchaser’s failure to respond to Seller’s notice within such five (5) Business Day period shall constitute Purchaser’s decision to waive the existence of such New Exception, in which case, any such New Exception shall automatically constitute a Permitted Exception, and proceed to Closing in accordance with this Agreement. In no event shall Purchaser be entitled to a reduction of the Purchase Price on account of any uncured New Exception unless Seller has agreed to cure such New Exception and fails to do so at or prior to Closing. In any case where this Agreement is terminated as permitted in this paragraph, then the Earnest Money shall be returned to Purchaser, and all rights, obligations and liabilities of the Parties hereunder shall be released and discharged except for those obligations and rights which by their terms survive termination of this Agreement.

 

 18 

 

 

(c)      Removal of New Exceptions. As used in this Agreement, “Remove” shall mean that Seller in its discretion will either (i) take such actions as are necessary to eliminate (of record or otherwise, as appropriate) the New Exception, (ii) cause the Title Company to remove the New Exception as an exception to the Title Policy and affirmatively insure against the same, whether such insurance is made available in consideration of payment, bonding, indemnity of Seller or otherwise, which in each case must be in a manner reasonably acceptable to Purchaser, or (iii) deliver its own funds to the Title Company with instructions for the Title Company to apply such funds to discharge fully the New Exception, together with such instruments, in recordable form, as are necessary to enable the Title Company to discharge the New Exception of record and funds necessary to cover the fees and expenses of the Title Company for discharging the claim and recording or filing such instruments.

 

5.3.4.     Removal of Unpermitted Exceptions. Seller shall have no obligation to cure (a) any Permitted Exceptions or (b) any encroachments by improvements on adjoining properties onto or over the Land, any encroachments of the Improvements onto or over adjoining properties, setback lines or easements (to the extent in violation thereof) or any other survey matters disclosed in the Existing Survey or Updated Survey, other than the Unpermitted Exceptions and all New Exceptions that are not Permitted Exceptions. Seller may cure any Unpermitted Exception by removing such Unpermitted Exception from title or causing the Title Company to commit to remove or, with Purchaser’s consent in Purchaser’s reasonable discretion, insure over such Unpermitted Exception in the Title Policy at any time prior to or at Closing.

 

5.4         Title Policy. At Closing, Seller shall cause the Title Company to issue an owner’s title insurance policy to Purchaser (which may be in the form of a mark-up of the Title Commitment or pro forma owner’s title insurance policy) in accordance with the Title Commitment, insuring Purchaser’s title to the Real Property as of the Closing Date, subject only to the Permitted Exceptions (the “Title Policy”).

 

5.5         Conveyance of the Property. At Closing, Seller shall convey the Real Property subject to all (i) Permitted Exceptions, and (ii) all Unpermitted Exceptions that are cured by causing the Title Company to remove or insure over such Unpermitted Exceptions in the Title Policy as herein provided, but which otherwise are not removed from title.

If (i) Purchaser has not delivered a Termination Notice pursuant to Section 4.1.1 and (ii) any of Seller’s representations or warranties hereunder is not true and correct in any material respect or Seller fails to perform its covenants or obligations hereunder in any material respect other than due to a Purchaser’s Default (a “Seller Default”) and Seller’s Default is not cured by Seller within ten (10) days of receipt of written notice thereof of Purchaser, then Purchaser, as its sole and exclusive remedies, may elect to: (a) terminate this Agreement, in which case the Earnest Money shall be refunded to Purchaser in accordance with Section 3.2.4, and Seller shall reimburse Purchaser for all third party out-of-pocket costs and expenses actually incurred by Purchaser and its Affiliates in connection with Purchaser’s due diligence investigations and the negotiation of this Agreement and Purchaser’s efforts to consummate the Contemplated Transactions (which reimbursement shall be capped at $300,000), and Seller shall promptly pay such amounts to Purchaser upon receipt of documentation showing the amount of such costs and expenses, after which the Parties shall have no further rights or obligations under this Agreement, except those which expressly survive such termination; (b) proceed to Closing in which case Purchaser shall be deemed to have waived such Seller Default and, if applicable, any Purchaser Closing Condition that is not satisfied as a result of such Seller Default; or (c) seek specific performance, by commencing legal action within forty- five (45) days following the expiration of any applicable cure period, with Seller responsible for costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by Purchaser in connection with obtaining such relief and with a reduction in or setoff against the Purchase Price as the court may deem appropriate. The preceding clause (a) shall survive the termination of this Agreement. Seller acknowledges and agrees that irreparable damage would occur in the event that Seller fails to take such actions as are required of it hereunder to consummate the Contemplated Transactions. Accordingly, Seller acknowledges and agrees that Purchaser shall be entitled to specific performance as provided in this Section 12.1. Seller agrees that it will not oppose the granting of specific performance as provided in this Section 12.1 on the basis that Purchaser has an adequate remedy at law or that any award of specific performance is not an appropriate remedy for any reason at law or in equity.

 

12.2       Purchaser’s Default. If (i) Purchaser has not deposited the Earnest Money within the time period provided in, and otherwise in accordance with, Section 3.2.1, or (ii) at any time prior to Closing, any of Purchaser’s representations or warranties hereunder is not true and correct in any material respect or Purchaser fails to perform any of its other covenants or obligations under this Agreement in any material respect other than due to a Seller Default (a “Purchaser Default”) and Purchaser’s Default is not cured by Purchaser within ten (10) days of receipt of written notice thereof of Seller, then Seller, as its sole and exclusive remedy, may elect to (A) terminate this Agreement by providing written notice to Purchaser, in which case the Earnest Money shall be disbursed to Seller in accordance with Section 3.2.4, and the Parties shall have no further rights or obligations under this Agreement, except those which expressly survive such termination, or (B) proceed to Closing pursuant to this Agreement, in which case Seller shall be deemed to have waived such Purchaser Default. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller shall have the right to bring an action for damages against Purchaser for Purchaser’s failure to deposit the Earnest Money. The preceding sentence shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

 

12.3       LIQUIDATED DAMAGES. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT IF THIS AGREEMENT IS TERMINATED PURSUANT TO SECTION 12.2, THE DAMAGES THAT SELLER WOULD SUSTAIN AS A RESULT OF SUCH TERMINATION WOULD BE DIFFICULT IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO ASCERTAIN. ACCORDINGLY, THE PARTIES AGREE THAT SELLER SHALL RETAIN THE EARNEST MONEY AS FULL AND COMPLETE LIQUIDATED DAMAGES (AND NOT AS A PENALTY) AS SELLER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR SUCH TERMINATION; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT IN ADDITION TO THE EARNEST MONEY, SELLER SHALL RETAIN ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WITH RESPECT TO THOSE OBLIGATIONS OF PURCHASER WHICH EXPRESSLY SURVIVE SUCH TERMINATION.

 

 44 

 

 

12.4       Effect of Termination. If this Agreement is terminated all rights and obligations of the Parties hereunder shall terminate and no Party shall have any liability to the other Party hereto, except for obligations of the Parties in this Agreement which expressly survive the termination of this Agreement, and except that nothing herein will relieve any Party from liability arising out of any willful breach of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained in this Agreement.

13.2.1.   Material Condemnation. If the Condemnation would (i) result in the permanent loss of more than five percent (5%) of the Purchase Price, (ii) result in any material reduction or restriction in access to the Land or Improvements, or (iii) have a materially adverse effect on the Business as conducted prior to such Condemnation, including, without limitation rendering the lobby, reception area, front desk, parking area or other portions of the Property that are material to the operation of the Business unavailable for use following Closing (a “Material Condemnation”), then Purchaser shall have the right to elect, by providing written notice to Seller within ten (10) days after Purchaser’s receipt of Seller’s written notice of such Material Condemnation, to (A) terminate this Agreement, in which case the Earnest Money shall be refunded to Purchaser in accordance with Section 3.2.4, and the Parties shall have no further rights or obligations under this Agreement, except those which expressly survive such termination, or (B) proceed to Closing, without terminating this Agreement, in which case Seller shall assign to Purchaser all of Seller’s right, title and interest in all proceeds and awards from such Material Condemnation.

If the Indemnification Claim involves a Third-Party Claim, the Indemnitor shall have the right (but not the obligation) to assume the defense of such Third-Party Claim, at its cost and expense, and shall use good faith efforts consistent with prudent business judgment to defend such Third-Party Claim, provided that (i) the counsel for the Indemnitor who shall conduct the defense of the Third-Party Claim shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee (unless selected by Indemnitor’s insurance company), (ii) the Indemnitee, at its cost and expense, may participate in, but shall not control, the defense of such Third-Party Claim, and (iii) the Indemnitor shall not enter into any settlement or other agreement which requires any performance by the Indemnitee, other than the payment of money which shall be paid by the Indemnitor.

Seller represents that Seller shall be the “Exchangor” under an Exchange for the Property, as the “Relinquished Property”, and shall be the purchasing entity for the “Replacement Property” in such Exchange, as all such terms are used and defined in similar Exchanges. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that in the event the other Party requires additional time in order to effectuate its Exchange, the requesting Party shall have the one-time right, in its sole discretion, to extend the Closing Date for up to thirty (30) days by delivering written notice to the other Party on or before five (5) days prior to the originally scheduled Closing Date. The exchanging Party shall be responsible for all agreements, documents and escrow instructions and no substitution of or assignment to another party to effectuate such exchange shall release any other Party from its obligations, warranties or obligations under this Agreement or from liability from any prior or subsequent default.

 

16.17    Remedies. Except as otherwise provided herein, any and all remedies with respect to a Party’s willful or intentional breach hereunder expressly conferred upon a Party shall be deemed cumulative with and not exclusive of any other remedy conferred hereby, or by law or equity upon such Party, and the exercise by a Party of any one remedy shall not preclude the exercise of any other remedy.
