AGREEMENT OF SALE AND PURCHASE

 

THIS AGREEMENT OF SALE AND PURCHASE (this “Agreement”) is made by and between those Sellers set forth in Exhibit “A” attached hereto (collectively, “Seller”), and PHYSICIANS REALTY L.P., a Delaware limited partnership or its assignee(s) or nominee(s) (“Buyer”).  This Agreement is to be effective as of the date on which Buyer and Seller execute this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement (as defined below) (the “Effective Date”).  Buyer shall provide Seller with written notice of the Effective Date of this Agreement.

 

In consideration of the covenants and provisions contained herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereby agree as follows:

 

1.                                      Agreement to Sell and Purchase.  Seller agrees to sell to Buyer, and Buyer agrees to purchase from Seller the Property, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.  For the purposes of this Agreement, the term “Property” shall mean and include the following:

 

(a)                   All of that certain real property legally described in the attached Exhibit “A”, including, without limitation, the land, buildings, improvements, fixtures (including, without limitation, the sprinkling, plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilating, air conditioning, electrical, lighting and other systems), easements and all other right, title and interest appurtenant and otherwise relating thereto (collectively, the “Real Property”).

 

(b)                   [Intentionally Deleted].

 

(c)                    All of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to all leases, contracts and other agreements incident to the operation of the business conducted on the Real Property, including, without limitation, management contracts, on-site maintenance contracts, janitorial contracts, and leasing commission agreements, if any; all of which are listed on attached Schedule 1(c) (collectively, the “Contract Rights”), except to the extent Buyer elects to exclude any such item, pursuant to Section 6(c) of this Agreement.

 

(d)                   All of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to all financial and other books and records maintained in connection with the operation of the Real Property; all preliminary, final and proposed building plans and specifications relating to the Real Property; and all surveys, structural reviews, grading plans, topographical maps, architectural drawings and engineering, soils, seismic, geologic, environmental, and architectural reports, studies, certificates, and similar documents relating to the Real Property, if any; all of which are listed on the attached Schedule 1(d) (collectively, the “Records and Plans”).  Without limiting the foregoing, Buyer acknowledges and agrees that none of the Records and Plans shall include any “patient data” protected by HIPPA or similar privacy laws, regulations and rules.

 

1



 

(e)                    All of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to all guarantees and warranties relating to the Property and the fixtures and equipment located therein, if any; all of which are listed on the attached Schedule 1(e) (collectively, the “Warranties”).

 

(f)                     All of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to all trade names, licenses, permits, certificates of occupancy, approvals, dedications, subdivision maps, and entitlements issued, approved or granted by governmental or quasi-governmental entities or otherwise relating to the Property; and any and all development rights and other intangible rights, titles, interests, privileges, and appurtenances owned by Seller and in any way relating to or used in connection with the Property and/or the operation of the business conducted on the Real Property, if any; all of which are listed on the attached Schedule 1(f) (collectively, the “Licenses and Permits”).

 

The Property shall expressly exclude all personal property attached to or located on or used in connection with the operation of the Real Property, including, without limitation, furniture, furnishings, fittings, removable fixtures, appliances, medical equipment, machinery and equipment, building materials, operating inventories, supplies, safes, alligators, art work, pictures, photographs, awards, textbooks and medical journals, all of which are owned by the tenant or the physicians practicing at the Property’s premises, as the case may be.

 

2.                                      Purchase Price.  The purchase price for the Property is Seventeen Million Four Hundred Eighty-Six Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($17,486,000.00) (the “Purchase Price”), payable by Buyer as follows:

 

(a)                   One Hundred Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($100,000.00) (the “Deposit”) by wire transfer payable to First American Title Insurance Company (“Escrow Agent”), which sum shall be delivered to Escrow Agent within three (3) business days following the Effective Date.  The Deposit shall be held in an interest bearing, federally insured account, by Escrow Agent in accordance with the Escrow Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit “B” (the “Escrow Agreement”) and this Agreement pending consummation of this transaction. Any interest earned on the Deposit shall be paid to Buyer unless Seller shall be entitled to the Deposit by reason of a default by Buyer, in which case such interest shall be paid to Seller.  Upon expiration of the Due Diligence Period, if Buyer has not terminated this Agreement as provided herein, the Deposit shall become nonrefundable except in the event of a Seller default.  Buyer’s Federal Tax I.D. Number is 80-0941870; Sellers’ Federal Tax I.D. Number are 65-0291512 and 65-0128725.

 

(b)                           At Closing, an amount equal to one hundred twenty-five percent (125%) of the estimated costs to complete the maintenance, repair and replacement items for the Property identified by Buyer during the Due Diligence Period (the “Work Deposit”) shall be deposited in a separate, federally insured account, by Escrow Agent in accordance with the terms and conditions of a work, access and escrow agreement (the “Work Escrow Agreement”) to be mutually agreed upon by Buyer and Seller during the Due Diligence Period, to ensure and pay for the completion of such maintenance, repair and replacement items.

 

(c)                            The balance of the Purchase Price (the Purchase Price minus the Deposit and the Work Deposit), subject to adjustments pursuant to this Agreement, including, but not

 

2



 

limited to, those adjustments set forth in Section 8 of this Agreement, shall be paid to Seller at Closing (as defined below) in cash by wire transfer of immediately available federal funds.

 

(d)                           The Purchase Price shall be allocated among each Property as set forth in Schedule 2(d) on or before the expiration of the Due Diligence Period and as mutually agreed by Buyer and Seller in their reasonable discretion.

 

3.                                      Closing.  Closing shall be held on the date that is ten (10) days after the later of:  (i) expiration date of the Due Diligence Period (as defined below) or (ii) the date upon which title to the Property is acceptable or deemed acceptable to Buyer pursuant to Section 4 below (or on the next business day thereafter if such date is not a business day) (the “Closing Date”), or on such earlier date as Buyer shall designate by at least five (5) days advance written notice to Seller; provided, however, in no event shall the Closing Date be later than February 28, 2014.  The Closing shall be a closing with the Title Company (as defined below) acting as the closing agent (“Closing”).  It is agreed that the time of Closing and the obligation of Seller to deliver the Deed (as defined in Section 6(h) below) to Buyer at Closing are of the essence of this Agreement.    In the event that Buyer has not terminated this Agreement at the expiration of the Due Diligence Period and proceeds to Closing, prior to the Closing Date Buyer and Seller will amend and restate this Agreement so that there are four (4) separate purchase and sale agreements with respect to each Property on the same terms and conditions as this Agreement; provided the closing of the transactions contemplated by each such purchase and sale agreement shall be cross-conditioned.  The Purchase Price for each separate purchase and sale agreement will be based on the allocation referenced in Section 2(d).

 

4.                                      Title.  From and after the Effective Date, Buyer shall have the right to order a title insurance commitment prepared in accordance with all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement (the “Title Commitment”).

 

(a)                   The Title Commitment shall be prepared in accordance with the current ALTA Form, issued by First American Title Insurance Company acceptable to Buyer (the “Title Company”), agreeing to issue, upon recording of the special warranty deed described in this Agreement, an ALTA owner’s title insurance policy to Buyer and an ALTA Lender’s title insurance policy issued to Buyer’s lender(s), if applicable, in the amount of the Purchase Price insuring title to the Real Property to be in the condition called for by this Agreement and containing a “fifty-year chain-of-title search,” , a survey endorsement insuring that the survey accurately depicts the Real Property (including boundaries, improvements, easements and encroachments), a contiguity endorsement,  and an owner’s Form 9 endorsement.  Seller shall cause the Title Company at or prior to Closing to down date the Title Commitment to the date and time of the recording of the Deed and provide a “title mark-up” showing the final form of the title insurance policy (including the above referenced endorsements) to be issued, which mark-up shall obligate the Title Company to issue the final title insurance policy in such form.  The title mark-up and final title insurance policy shall be free from the standard requirements and exceptions and shall be subject only to liens, encumbrances or exceptions specifically approved by Buyer during the Due Diligence Period or any item not considered a Title Objection and

 

3



 

objected to by Buyer (the “Permitted Exceptions”).  A written statement of the obligee of the amount of any lien or encumbrance to be discharged by Seller shall be provided by Seller within ten (10) days after the title evidence is furnished to Buyer. The premium for the owner’s title policy or other services provided by the Title Company shall be paid by Seller on or before Closing, except that the Buyer shall be responsible for the cost of any endorsements to the owner’s title policy, the premium for the lender’s title policy and the cost of any endorsements required by Buyer’s lender.

 

(b)                   Title Defects. Within ten (10) days of Buyer’s receipt of the latter of the Title Commitment or the Survey (as defined in Section 6 (g) below), Buyer shall object in writing to any condition of title not satisfactory to Buyer, in Buyer’s sole discretion (hereinafter referred to as a “Title Defect”). If any objection is made, Seller shall have until prior to Closing in which to attempt to correct such Title Defect, but Seller shall not be obligated to correct Title Defects.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller agrees to cure any and all Title Defects of an ascertainable monetary value not in excess of $25,000.00 per Property or $100,000.00 in the aggregate.  If the Title Defect cannot be corrected, or Seller elects not to cure such Title Defect, prior to Closing, or as otherwise extended by agreement of Buyer and Seller, Buyer may, at its option, (a) declare this Agreement null and void and as a result Seller shall return the Deposit together with all accrued interest forthwith to Buyer or (b) elect to accept such title as Seller is able to convey and proceed to Closing, without any deduction in the Purchase Price for the Property. If Buyer fails to notify Seller that Buyer is terminating this Agreement pursuant to this Section within three (3) business days of the expiration of the 10-day period, Buyer shall be deemed to have selected option (b) in the previous sentence.

 

5.                                      Representations and Warranties.  Each Seller represents and warrants that all of such Seller’s representations and warranties relating to this Agreement are true, correct and complete as of the Effective Date of this Agreement and shall be deemed reaffirmed as true, correct and complete as of Closing. Each Seller acknowledges that the representations and warranties made in this Agreement by such Seller are a material inducement to Buyer’s entering into this Agreement and purchasing the Property and that Buyer is entitled to rely upon these representations and warranties despite any and all investigation undertaken by Buyer. All of Seller’s representations and warranties relating to this Agreement shall survive the Closing of the transactions contemplated herein for a period of one (1) year.  In addition to any other representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement, each Seller, solely with respect to the parcel of the Real Property owned by such Seller, hereby further represents, warrants and covenants to Buyer as follows:

 

(a)                   Each Seller holds fee simple title to the Real Property.  Each Seller other than Alan H. Porter is a validly organized and duly existing general partnership organized under the laws of the State of Florida and has the power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the transactions herein contemplated. Alan H. Porter has the power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the transactions herein contemplated.

 

4



 

(b)               Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement, nor compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement by Seller, nor the consummation of the sale and conveyance of the Property to Buyer, constitutes or will constitute a violation or breach of the partnership agreement of any Seller (excluding Alan H. Porter), as the same may have been amended from time to time, or of any agreement or other instrument to which any Seller is a party, to which it is subject or by which it is bound.

 

(c)                    On or before the Closing, the execution and delivery of this Agreement will have been approved by the general partners or managing partner of each Seller (other than Alan H. Porter) and no further action is required on the part of any Seller to consummate the transaction contemplated hereby. The person executing this Agreement on behalf of each Seller shall have all requisite authority to execute this Agreement, and this Agreement, as executed, is valid, legal and binding upon Seller. There are no proceedings pending or threatened by or against any Seller in bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization in any state or federal court.

 

(d)                   Seller has no actual knowledge of, and has received no notice from, any governmental authority requiring any work, repairs, construction, alterations or installations on or in connection with the Property, or asserting any violation of any federal, state, county or municipal laws, ordinances, codes, orders, regulations or requirements affecting any portion of the Property, including, without limitation, the Americans with Disabilities Act and any applicable environmental laws or regulations. There is no action, suit or proceeding pending or, to the actual knowledge of Seller, threatened against or affecting Seller or the Property or any portion thereof or relating to or arising out of the ownership of the Property, in any court or before or by any federal, state, county or municipal department, commission, board, bureau or agency or other governmental instrumentality.

 

(e)                    To Seller’s actual knowledge, no assessments or charges of any kind or nature (deferred or otherwise) for any public improvements have been made against the Property which remain unpaid, no improvements to the Property or any roads or facilities abutting the Property have been made or ordered for which a lien, assessment or charge can be filed or made, and Seller has no actual knowledge of any plans for improvements by any governmental or quasi-governmental authority which might result in a special assessment against the Property.  Seller has incurred no obligations relating to the installation of or connection to any sanitary sewers or storm sewers which shall be enforceable against the Property; and all public improvements ordered, advertised, commenced or completed prior to the date of this Agreement shall be paid for in full by Seller prior to Closing, unless such improvements are to be paid by a special assessment assessed against the Property, which assessment is to be paid in installments. In such case, Seller shall only be responsible for the assessments due prior to Closing and the Buyer shall pay all assessments due after Closing.

 

(f)                     To Seller’s actual knowledge, all certificates of occupancy and licenses necessary for operation of the Property, as presently conducted, have been issued by all authorities having jurisdiction thereof; and all such certificates of occupancy and licenses are in

In the event Buyer shall discover such Hazardous Substances and/or violations of Environmental Laws, tanks or other “recognized environmental condition” (as that phrase is defined by the most recent American Society for Testing and Materials practice standards) on the Property at any time prior to Closing, Buyer shall have the right to terminate this Agreement upon written notice thereof to Seller, whereupon Escrow Agent shall return the Deposit to Buyer together with all interest thereon; and thereafter this Agreement shall be deemed void and neither party shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder; provided, however, that, if Seller had actual knowledge of such environmental condition and failed to disclose the same to Buyer in breach of this Agreement, Seller shall immediately reimburse Buyer for Buyer’s Reasonable Costs (not to exceed $25,000).  The foregoing reimbursement obligation of Seller shall survive on termination of this Agreement by Buyer or Seller.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the effect of the representations and warranties made in this Subparagraph shall not be diminished or deemed to be waived by any inspections, tests or investigations made by Buyer or its agents.

 

For purposes of this Agreement, the term “Environmental Law(s)” shall mean all federal, state and local laws including statutes, regulations, codes and other governmental standards, restrictions, rulings, judgments, orders and requirements in effect now or at any time in the future or past relating to the use, storage, disposal, release, emission, dispersal, spilling, leaking, burial, migration, seepage, movement, discharge, management, investigation, remediation, monitoring, regulation relating to air pollutants, water pollutants, process wastewater, solid or hazardous waste, chemicals, gases, vapors, water pollutants, groundwater, effluents, stormwater runoff, surface water runoff, the environment, Hazardous Substances or

For purposes of this Agreement, the term “Hazardous Substance(s)” shall mean all hazardous, toxic, flammable, explosive or radioactive substances, wastes and materials; any pollutants or contaminants (including, but not limited to, petroleum products, asbestos, raw materials and natural substances that include hazardous constituents); and any other similar substances or materials that are regulated under Environmental Laws

(i)                       There are no existing leases, whether oral or written, agreements of sale, options, rights of first refusal, rights of first offer, tenancies, licenses or any other claims to possession or use affecting the Property except as listed in Exhibit “C” attached hereto.  Exhibit “C” lists all:  (i) leases and subleases for any portion of the Property and all assignments, amendments and any other writings related thereto in effect on the Effective Date (the “Leases”); and (ii) guarantees with respect to the Leases in effect on the Effective Date (the “Guarantees”).  Each of the Leases and Guarantees is valid and subsisting and in full force and effect and has not been further amended, modified or supplemented; and the tenant thereunder is in actual possession in the normal course and the tenant is not in default thereunder.  No tenant has asserted any claim of which Seller has notice which would in any way affect the collection of rent from such tenant, and no written notice of default or breach on the part of the landlord under any of the Leases has been received by Seller or its agents from the tenant thereunder.  All painting, repairs, alterations and other work required to be performed by Seller under the Leases, have been or will, prior to Closing, be fully performed and paid for in full by Seller.

 

(j)                      The rents set forth in Exhibit “C” are the actual rents, income and charges presently being collected by Seller.  No tenant under any of the Leases is entitled to any concessions, allowances, rebates or refunds or has prepaid any rents or other charges for more than the current month.  None of the Leases and none of the rents or other amounts payable thereunder have been assigned, pledged or encumbered by Seller, except to the extent, if any, that Seller has made collateral assignments of rents and leases to the holder of a mortgage on the

 

7



 

Property.  No security deposits have been paid by any tenants which have not heretofore been returned, except as set forth in Exhibit “C” hereto, if any.

 

(k)                   From 2007 to 2013, Seller engaged a third party administrator to handle payment of certain expenses associated with the Property.  To Seller’s actual knowledge, the statements of income and expenses attached hereto as Exhibit “D” accurately reflect the income and expenses for operating the Property for the year-to-date and the three (3) calendar years preceding the Effective Date, in all material respects.

 

(l)                       For the purposes of this Section 5, the phrase “to the actual knowledge of Seller” shall mean the actual knowledge of Alan Porter, in his individually capacity or on behalf of a selling entity without any duty to independently investigate or inquire.  Seller represents and warrants that Alan Porter is the most knowledgeable person with respect to Seller and the Property.

 

6.                                      Conditions of Buyer’s Obligations.  For the purposes of this Agreement “Due Diligence Period” shall mean the thirty (30) day period from and after the Effective Date.  The obligation of Buyer under this Agreement to purchase the Property from Seller is contingent on the satisfaction of the following conditions within each condition’s respective time-period (any one of which may be waived in whole or in part by Buyer within each condition’s time period):

 

(a)                   At Closing, all of the representations and warranties by Seller set forth in this Agreement shall be true and correct in all material respects as though such representations and warranties were made at and as of Closing, and Seller shall have substantially performed, observed and complied with all covenants, agreements and conditions required by this Agreement.

(c)                    At Closing, Seller shall pay to Buyer all security deposits under the Leases, together with any interest accrued thereon, as well as any other funds paid to Seller by tenants on account of additional rent items not yet due and payable by Seller, such as tax and insurance escrows.  Seller shall make such payment in the form of a credit against the Purchase Price in favor of Buyer.

(e)                    Any and all other normal, on-going operating expenses attributable to the Property, except to the extent any of the same relate to the Contract Rights excluded from the Property pursuant to Section 6(c) of this Agreement, shall be prorated between the parties through the day before Closing.

 

(g)                             Within ninety (90) days after the Closing, Buyer and Seller shall reconcile all of the foregoing payments and prorations based on actual bills or invoices received after the Closing, but only if the prorations or payments were based on an estimate and not actual current bills or invoices.  In the event that any item of income, charge, or expense cannot be reconciled accurately within such 90-day period, the Buyer and Seller hereby agree to delay such reconciliation until a date when it can be accurately completed.  Any party owing to the other party any amount ascertained by the required reconciliations shall promptly, but in no event later than fifteen (15) business days after the date of the applicable reconciliation, pay the other party  such amount.  The obligations set forth in the Section 8(g) shall survive Closing.

 

As applicable, all of the foregoing items set forth in this Section 8, unless otherwise expressly stated, shall be prorated between the parties as of midnight of the day before Closing.

 

10.                               Condemnation; Rezoning, Historic Designation.  Seller represents and warrants that Seller has not heretofore received any notice of any eminent domain or condemnation proceeding in connection with the Property.  If prior to Closing any such eminent domain or condemnation proceeding is commenced or any change is made, or proposed to be made to: (i) any portion or all of the Property; (ii) the current means of ingress and egress to the Property; or (iii) to the roads or driveways adjoining the Property, Seller agrees immediately to notify Buyer in writing thereof.  Buyer then shall have the right, at Buyer’s option, to terminate this Agreement by giving written notice to Seller prior to Closing.  If Buyer elects to terminate this Agreement pursuant to the terms set forth in this Section 9, then the Deposit shall be immediately returned to Buyer together with all accrued interest, Buyer and Seller shall be released from any further liability hereunder and this Agreement shall be null and void.  If Buyer does not so terminate this Agreement, Buyer shall proceed to Closing hereunder as if no such proceeding had commenced and will pay Seller the full Purchase Price in accordance with this Agreement, and Seller shall assign to Buyer all of its right, title and interest in and to any compensation for such condemnation.  Seller shall not negotiate or settle any claims for compensation prior to Closing, and Buyer shall have the sole right (in the name of Buyer or Seller or both) to negotiate for, to agree to, and to contest all offers and awards.

 

If, prior to closing, there is a designation of the Real Property (and/or any improvement located thereon) or any portion thereof as a historic structure or other historic designation, or is threatened, commenced or finalized, or there is a threatened, commenced or finalized rezoning of the Real Property, Seller shall promptly notify Buyer, and Buyer may elect to terminate this Agreement prior to Closing, in which event the Deposit and all accrued interest thereon shall be returned forthwith to Buyer, Buyer and Seller shall be released from any further liability hereunder and this Agreement shall be null and void. If Buyer does not elect to terminate this Agreement, this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and at Closing Seller shall assign

 

15



 

to Buyer all Seller’s right, title and interest in and to any dollars paid by the governmental authority (if any) in connection with the rezoning of the Real Property or historic designation.

 

11.                               Default by Buyer.  If Buyer, without the right to do so and in default of its obligations hereunder, fails to complete Closing as to the Property, which default is not cured by Buyer within five (5) days after written notice thereof to Buyer, the Deposit and all accrued interest shall be paid to Seller.  Such payment of the Deposit and all accrued interest to Seller shall be deemed to be liquidated damages for Buyer’s default and the receipt of same shall be Seller’s exclusive and sole remedy; and Seller hereby waives any right to recover the balance of the Purchase Price, or any part thereof, and the right to pursue any other remedy permitted at law or in equity against Buyer.  The parties agree that it would be impracticable and extremely difficult to ascertain the actual damages suffered by Seller as a result of Buyer’s failure to complete the purchase of the Property pursuant to this Agreement, and that under the circumstances existing as of the date of this Agreement, the liquidated damages provided for in this Section represent a reasonable estimate of the damages which Seller will incur as a result of such failure.  The parties acknowledge that the payment of such liquidated damages is not intended as a forfeiture or penalty under any legal or equitable theory, but is intended to constitute liquidated damages to Seller.

 

12.                               Default by Seller.  (a) If Seller defaults in the performance of any obligation contained in this Agreement, or (b) if Seller, without the right to do so and in default of its obligations hereunder, fails to complete Closing, which default is not cured by Seller within five (5) days after written notice thereof to Seller, the Deposit and all accrued interest shall be returned to Buyer, and Seller shall reimburse Buyer for all of Buyer’s Reasonable Costs (not to exceed $25,000).   In the alternative, Buyer may exercise the right of specific performance.   The remedies in this Section 12 shall be Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedies in the event of a Seller default hereunder.

 

13.                               Risk of Loss.  Seller shall bear the risk of all loss or damage to the Property from all causes until Closing.  Seller represents that it has, and will maintain pending Closing, a policy of fire and extended coverage insurance in at least the full amount of the replacement cost of all buildings and improvements located on the Property.  If at any time prior to Closing any portion of the Property is destroyed or damaged as a result of fire or any other casualty whatsoever, Seller shall promptly give written notice thereof to Buyer and Buyer shall have the right:  (i) to terminate this Agreement by written notice to Seller, whereupon Escrow Agent shall return the Deposit (with any accrued interest) to Buyer, and thereafter this Agreement shall be void and neither party shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder; or (ii) to proceed with this Agreement and to notify Seller that, at Buyer’s sole option, Seller either shall:  (A) use any available insurance proceeds to restore the Property prior to Closing to its condition as of the Effective Date; or (B) in lieu of restoration, prior to Closing, clear the site of debris and deposit all remaining insurance proceeds in escrow with Escrow Agent and such funds, together with interest thereon, shall be disbursed to Buyer at Closing.  All unpaid claims and rights in connection with any such losses shall be assigned to Buyer at Closing without in any manner affecting the Purchase Price.  In the event Buyer elects to proceed under clause (ii)(A) or (ii)(B)

 

16



 

above, Seller shall either expend the deductible amount provided for in such insurance coverage in making such restoration or clearing the Property, as the case may be, or give Buyer a credit therefore against the Purchase Price.

 

14.                               Brokerage.  Seller represents to Buyer that Seller has engaged the brokerage services of Nauset Advisors (“Broker”) and that Seller shall be solely responsible for all fees, costs, commissions and any and all other amounts due and payable to Broker, which shall be paid to Broker on or before Closing.  Seller further agrees to deliver an executed broker’s lien affidavit from Broker on or before Closing.  Buyer represents and warrants to Seller and Seller represents and warrants to Buyer that, except for Broker, neither has dealt with any broker, agent, finder or other intermediary in connection with this sale and purchase. Seller agrees to pay Broker pursuant to the terms of a separate agreement between Seller and Broker, and Buyer shall have no liability or obligation in connection therewith.  Seller agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Buyer harmless from and  against any broker’s claim arising from any breach by Seller of Seller’s representation and warranty in this Section 13..  Buyer agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Seller harmless from and against any broker’s claim arising from any breach by Buyer of Buyer’s representation and warranty in this Section 13.

 

15.                               Operation of the Property Prior to Closing.  Prior to Closing:

 

(a)                   Seller shall operate, manage and maintain the Property in a reasonable, professional and prudent manner, and keep the same in its current condition at all times.  Without expense to Buyer, Seller shall make all repairs and replacements (structural and non-structural, ordinary and extraordinary), or cause the tenants under the Leases to make all repairs and replacements if required by the terms of the Leases, so that the Property is maintained in its present condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted.

 

(b)                   Upon reasonable notice, Buyer, its accountants, architects, attorneys, engineers, contractors and other representatives shall be afforded access to:  (i)  the Property to inspect, measure, appraise, test and make surveys of the Property, including, but not limited to, all activities necessary to satisfy the contingencies set forth in this Section 6 and elsewhere in this Agreement; and (ii) all books, records and files relating to the Property.  Buyer shall have the right, at Buyer’s expense, to make copies of all such books and records, including, without limitation, all books and records relating to increases in real estate taxes, building and operations maintenance costs; provided, however, that Buyer shall return all copies of such books and records if Closing does not occur under this Agreement.  Buyer shall not interfere unreasonably with the operation of the Property and shall restore any area on the Property disturbed in the course of Buyer’s testing to the conditions existing prior to any tests conducted by Buyer. Buyer hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Seller (and her Seller’s representatives, successors and assigns) from and against any and all claims, liens, demands, personal injury, property damage, loss or liability of any nature whatsoever arising from or incident to Buyer’s (or its agents, representatives’ or contractors’) entry or entries onto the Property or activities upon the Property. This indemnity shall survive the closing or earlier termination of this Agreement.

 

17



 

(c)                    Seller shall comply with all of the obligations of landlord under the Leases and all other agreements and contractual arrangements affecting the Property by which Seller is bound.

 

(d)                   Seller shall promptly notify Buyer of Seller’s receipt of any notice from any party alleging that Seller is in default of its obligations under any of the Leases or any permit or agreement affecting the Property, or any portion or portions thereof.

 

(e)                    No contract for or on behalf of or affecting the Property shall be negotiated or entered into which cannot be terminated by Seller prior to Closing without charge, cost, penalty or premium.

 

(f)                     Except with the prior written consent of Buyer, Seller shall not enter into any new leases for any portion of the Property.  Any new lease shall be on a form of lease supplied to Seller by Buyer.  In the event Buyer approves any new leases, Seller shall deliver to Buyer an Estoppel Certificate from the tenant(s) and guarantor(s) thereunder as required hereunder for the Leases and otherwise shall comply, as to such new leases and new guarantees, with the terms of this Agreement relating to the Leases and the Guarantees.  Further, except with the prior written consent of Buyer, Seller shall not amend, extend, terminate, accept surrender of, or permit any assignments or subleases of, any of the Leases nor accept any rental more than one (1) month in advance or accelerate the rent due to any tenant default under any of the Leases.

 

(g)                    From the Effective Date until Closing, Seller shall maintain the Contract Rights, Records and Plans, Warranties, and Licenses and Permits in full force and effect as applicable and shall not terminate, modify or waive any provision thereof.

18.                               Further Assurances.  After Closing, at Buyer’s sole cost and expense, Seller shall execute, acknowledge and deliver, for no further consideration, all assignments, transfers, deeds and other documents as Buyer may reasonably request to vest in Buyer and perfect Buyer’s right, title and interest in and to the Property.

 

19.                               Right of First Refusal.  If Seller (or any affiliate of Seller) receives any bona fide written offer (a “Third Party Offer”) to purchase Unit A-3 of the condominium located at 901 South Tamiami Trail, Venice, Florida, and Seller desires to accept the same, before acceptance of such Third Party Offer, Seller shall give to Buyer in writing the right to purchase such Unit A3 at the same price and upon the same terms as are contained in the Third Party Offer.  If Buyer shall not have exercised its purchase right by written notice to Seller given within fourteen (14) days after receipt by Buyer of Seller’s written notice, Seller shall be free to sell such Unit A-3 at the price and on the terms of such Third Party Offer.  If (i) such transaction is not closed on or prior to the day that is earlier of (y) one hundred eighty (180) days after the expiration of Buyer’s 14-day response period set forth above or (z) the closing date set forth in Third Party Offer; (ii) Seller desires to enter into such transaction with a party other than the proposed purchaser (or its assignee) described in the notice delivered to Buyer (including, without limitation, an affiliate of such proposed purchaser identified to Seller); or (iii) Seller desires to enter into a such transaction on terms materially more favorable to the proposed purchaser than those set forth in the notice to Buyer, then Seller may not enter into a transaction for the sale of Unit A-3 without sending a new notice to Buyer and otherwise complying with the provisions of this Section 19.  In the event that Buyer declines to purchase Unit A-3 (or is deemed to have waived such right), Seller must provide notice to Buyer of any proposed modification of the financial terms of the proposed transaction not less than five (5) business days prior to entering into a binding agreement with the proposed purchaser.  If Buyer gives notice of acceptance the Third Party Offer, then the closing of the purchase and sale of Unit A-3 shall occur pursuant to the terms of the bona fide Third Party Offer. The provisions of this Section 19 shall terminate and be of no further force or effect on the third anniversary of the Closing Date.

 

20.                               Miscellaneous.

(n)                   In computing any period of time prescribed by the terms of this Agreement, the day from which the designated period of time begins to run shall not be included.  The last day of the period so computed shall be included unless it is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday (i.e., not a “Business Day”), in which event the period shall run until the end of the next day which is a Business Day.  In the event any day on which any act is to be performed by Seller or Buyer under the terms of this Agreement is not a Business Day, the time for the performance by Seller or Buyer of any such act shall be extended to the next day which is a Business Day.

 

(o)                   Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that, when it has accumulated in a building in sufficient quantities, may present health risks to persons who are exposed to it over time.  Levels of radon that exceed federal and state guidelines have been found in buildings in Florida.  Additional information regarding radon and radon testing can be obtained from your county health department.
