2.1    Purchase and Sale. Seller agrees to sell and convey the Property to Purchaser and Purchaser agrees to purchase the Property from Seller, all in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Contract.

2.3.2    Escrow Agent shall hold and apply the Deposit in strict accordance with the terms of this Contract. The tax identification numbers of the parties shall be furnished to Escrow Agent upon request.

2.3.3    Except for the return of the Deposit to Purchaser as a result of Purchaser exercising its termination right under Section 3.2 below (in which event Escrow Agent shall promptly release the Deposit to Purchaser on demand), if prior to the Closing Date either party makes a written demand upon Escrow Agent for payment of the Deposit, Escrow Agent shall give written notice to the other party of such demand. If Escrow Agent does not receive a written objection from the other party to the proposed payment within 5 Business Days after the giving of such notice, Escrow Agent is hereby authorized to make such payment. If Escrow Agent does receive such written objection within such 5-Business Day period, Escrow Agent shall continue to hold such amount until otherwise directed by written instructions from the parties to this Contract or a final judgment or arbitrator’s decision. However, Escrow Agent shall have the right at any time to deliver the Deposit and interest thereon, if any, with a court of competent jurisdiction in the state in which the Property is located. Escrow Agent shall give written notice of such deposit to Seller and Purchaser. Upon such deposit, Escrow Agent shall be relieved and discharged of all further obligations and responsibilities hereunder. Any return of the Deposit to Purchaser provided for in this Contract shall be subject to Purchaser’s obligations set forth in Section 3.5.2.

2.3.4    The parties acknowledge that Escrow Agent is acting solely as a stakeholder at their request and for their convenience, and that Escrow Agent shall not be deemed to be the agent of either of the parties and shall not be liable for any act or omission on its part unless taken or suffered in bad faith in willful disregard of this Contract or involving gross negligence. Seller and Purchaser jointly and severally shall indemnify and hold Escrow Agent harmless from and against all costs, claims and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred in connection with the performance of Escrow Agent’s duties hereunder, except with respect to actions or omissions taken or suffered by Escrow Agent in bad faith, in willful disregard of this Contract or involving gross negligence on the part of the Escrow Agent.\

2.3.5    The parties shall deliver to Escrow Agent an executed copy of this Contract.

Further, Escrow Agent agrees to indemnify and hold Purchaser, Seller, and their respective attorneys and brokers harmless from and against any Losses resulting from Escrow Agent’s failure to file the reports Escrow Agent is required to file pursuant to this Section.

FEASIBILITY PERIOD
3.1    Feasibility Period. Subject to the terms of Sections 3.3 and 3.4 and the rights of Tenants under the Leases, from December 1, 2014 to and including December 31, 2014 (the “Feasibility Period”), Purchaser, and its agents, contractors, engineers, surveyors, attorneys, and employees (collectively, “Consultants”) shall, at no cost or expense to Seller, have the right from time to time to enter onto the Property to conduct and make any and all customary studies, tests, examinations, inquiries, inspections and investigations of or concerning the Property, review the Materials and otherwise confirm any and all matters which Purchaser may reasonably desire to confirm with respect to the Property and Purchaser’s intended use thereof (collectively, the “Inspections”). Purchaser shall have been permitted to conduct a final inspection (including, at Purchaser’s option, a unit by unit walk-through inspection) of the Property within five (5) days of the Closing Date to confirm the accuracy of those matters set forth in this Contract, provided Purchaser provides Seller with reasonable advance notice of its intent to enter the Property so that Seller can provide at least forty-eight (48) hours’ notice to the residents at the Property, and Purchaser otherwise satisfies the insurance and indemnity obligations of Section 3.4 below.

3.2    Expiration of Feasibility Period. If any of the matters in Section 3.1 or any other title or survey matters are unsatisfactory to Purchaser for any reason, or for no reason whatsoever, in Purchaser’s sole and absolute discretion, then Purchaser shall have the right to terminate this Contract by giving written notice to that effect to Seller and Escrow Agent no later than 5:00 p.m. on or before the date of expiration of the Feasibility Period. If Purchaser provides such notice, this Contract shall terminate and be of no further force and effect subject to and except for the Survival Provisions, and Escrow Agent shall return the Initial Deposit to Purchaser. If Purchaser fails to provide Seller with written notice of termination prior to the expiration of the Feasibility Period, Purchaser’s right to terminate under this Section 3.2 shall be permanently waived and this Contract shall remain in full force and effect, the Deposit shall be non-refundable except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Contract, and Purchaser’s obligation to purchase the Property shall be conditional only as provided in Section 8.1.

3.3    Conduct of Investigation. Purchaser shall not permit any mechanics’ or materialmen’s liens or any other liens to attach to the Property by reason of the performance of any work or the purchase of any materials by Purchaser or any other party in connection with any Inspections conducted by or for Purchaser. Purchaser shall give reasonable advance notice to Seller prior to any entry onto the Property and shall permit Seller to have a representative present during all Inspections conducted at the Property. Purchaser shall take all reasonable actions and implement all protections necessary to ensure that all actions taken in connection with the Inspections, and all equipment, materials and substances generated, used or brought onto the Property pose no material threat to the safety of persons, property or the environment.

3.4    Purchaser Indemnification.

3.4.1    Purchaser shall indemnify, hold harmless and, if requested by Seller (in Seller’s sole discretion), defend (with counsel approved by Seller) Seller, together with Seller’s affiliates, parent and subsidiary entities, successors, assigns, partners, managers, members, employees, officers, directors, trustees, shareholders, counsel, representatives, agents, Property Manager, Regional Property Manager, and AIMCO (collectively, including Seller, “Seller’s Indemnified Parties”), from and against any and all damages, mechanics’ liens, materialmen’s liens, liabilities, penalties, interest, losses, demands, actions, causes of action, claims, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, including the cost of in-house counsel and appeals) (collectively, “Losses”) arising from or related to Purchaser’s or its Consultants’ entry onto the

3



Property, and any Inspections or other acts by Purchaser or Purchaser’s Consultants with respect to the Property during the Feasibility Period or otherwise.

3.4.2    Notwithstanding anything in this Contract to the contrary, Purchaser shall not be permitted to perform any invasive tests on the Property without Seller’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. If Purchaser desires to perform any invasive tests, Purchaser shall give prior written notice thereof to Seller, which notice shall be accompanied by a detailed description and plan of the invasive tests Purchaser desires to perform. Further, Seller shall have the right, without limitation, to disapprove any and all entries, surveys, tests (including, without limitation, a Phase II environmental study of the Property), investigations and other matters that in Seller’s reasonable judgment could result in any injury to the Property or breach of any contract, or expose Seller to any Losses or violation of applicable law, or otherwise adversely affect the Property or Seller’s interest therein. Purchaser shall, at Purchaser’s sole cost and expense, and in accordance with all applicable environmental laws, dispose of any hazardous materials which have been specifically removed from or at the Property by Purchaser or its agents, representatives, employees or designees in connection with Purchaser’s environmental studies. Purchaser shall use reasonable efforts to minimize disruption to Tenants in connection with Purchaser’s or its Consultants’ activities pursuant to this Section. No consent by Seller to any such activity shall be deemed to constitute a waiver by Seller or assumption of liability or risk by Seller. Purchaser hereby agrees to restore, at Purchaser’s sole cost and expense, the Property to the same condition existing immediately prior to Purchaser’s exercise of its rights pursuant to this Article III. Purchaser shall maintain and cause its third party consultants to maintain (a) casualty insurance and commercial general liability insurance with coverages of not less than $1,000,000.00 for injury or death to any one person and $3,000,000.00 for injury or death to more than one person and $1,000,000.00 with respect to property damage, and (b) worker’s compensation insurance for all of their respective employees in accordance with the law of the state in which the Property is located. Purchaser shall deliver proof of the insurance coverage required pursuant to this Section 3.4.2 to Seller (in the form of a certificate of insurance) prior to the earlier to occur of (i) Purchaser’s or Purchaser’s Consultants’ entry onto the Property, or (ii) the expiration of 5 days after the Effective Date.

3.5    Property Materials.

3.5.1    Within 2 Business Days after the Effective Date, Seller agrees to use reasonable efforts to deliver to Purchaser, or at Seller’s option make available at the Property, copies of the items set forth on Schedule 3.5.1 (other than such documents and information that Seller deems to be confidential or proprietary) (such items set forth on Schedule 3.5.1 together with any other documents or information provided by Seller or its agents to Purchaser with respect to the Property, the “Materials”).

3.5.2    Except as expressly set forth in Seller’s Representations, Seller makes no representations or warranties, express, written, oral, statutory, or implied, and all such representations and warranties are hereby expressly excluded and disclaimed. All Materials are provided for informational purposes only, and Purchaser shall not in any way be entitled to rely upon the completeness or accuracy of the Materials, and will instead in all instances rely exclusively on its own Inspections and Consultants with respect to all matters which it deems relevant to its decision to acquire, own and operate the Property. All Materials and Third-Party Reports shall either be returned to Seller or destroyed by Purchaser (with such destruction being evidenced by Purchaser’s email to Seller certifying the same) if this Contract is terminated for any reason.

3.5.3    Not later than 5 Business Days after the Effective Date, and to the extent the same has not already been provided by Seller to Purchaser, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser (or otherwise make available to Purchaser as provided under Section 3.5.1) the most recent rent roll for the Property, which is the rent roll

4



Seller uses in the ordinary course of operating the Property (the “Rent Roll”). Seller makes no representations or warranties regarding the Rent Roll other than the express representation set forth in Section 6.1.6.

3.5.4    Not later than 5 Business Days after the Effective Date, and to the extent the same has not already been provided by Seller to Purchaser, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser (or otherwise make available to Purchaser as provided under Section 3.5.1) a list of all current Property Contracts and Utility Contracts (the “Property Contracts List”). Seller makes no representations or warranties regarding the Property Contracts List other than the express representations set forth in Section 6.1.7.

3.6    Property Contracts. On or before the expiration of the Feasibility Period, Purchaser may deliver written notice to Seller (the “Property Contracts Notice”) specifying any Property Contracts which Purchaser desires to terminate at the Closing (the “Terminated Contracts”); provided that (a) the effective date of such termination on or after Closing shall be subject to the express terms of such Terminated Contracts, and (b) if any such Property Contract cannot by its terms be terminated at Closing, it shall be assumed by Purchaser and not be a Terminated Contract. To the extent that any such Terminated Contract requires payment of a penalty, premium, or damages, including liquidated damages, for cancellation, Purchaser shall be solely responsible for the payment of any such cancellation fees, penalties, or damages, including liquidated damages. If Purchaser fails to deliver the Property Contracts Notice on or before the expiration of the Feasibility Period, then there shall be no Terminated Contracts and Purchaser shall assume all Property Contracts at the Closing. If Purchaser delivers the Property Contracts Notice to Seller on or before the expiration of the Feasibility Period, then Seller shall execute and deliver, on or before Closing, a vendor termination notice (in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C) for each Terminated Contract informing the vendor(s) of the termination of such Terminated Contract as of the Closing Date (subject to any delay in the effectiveness of such termination pursuant to the express terms of each applicable Terminated Contract). To the extent that any Property Contract to be assigned to Purchaser requires vendor consent, then, prior to the Closing, Purchaser and Seller shall attempt to obtain from each applicable vendor a consent to such assignment.

3.7    Inventory and Supplies.  Purchaser acknowledges that Seller has contracted with Wilma (the “Supply Contract”) for the procurement and supply of building parts, fixtures, supplies, equipment and materials (collectively, the “Supplies”) and that pursuant to the Supply Contract, the Supplies at the Property are owned by Wilmar until actually used or put into service by Seller at the Property.  The Supply Contract may not be assumed by Purchaser but Purchaser may contact Wilmar to request a new contract for services and supplies.  If Purchaser enters into a new contract with Wilmar to be effective upon Closing, the Supplies will remain at the Property in accordance with such new contract.  If the Purchaser does not enter into a contract with Wilmar for the continuation of services and supplies from and after Closing, Purchaser acknowledges that Purchaser shall have no right to use any of the Supplies after the Closing and Wilmar will have the right to remove the Supplies from the Property within thirty (30) days after Closing.  In such event, Seller shall, or shall cause Wilmar to, create an inventory of the Supplies within 5 days prior to the Closing Date and provide the same to Purchaser. Seller shall be solely responsible for all amounts payable to Wilmar pursuant to the Supply Contract, whether payable pre-Closing or post-Closing (provided that Purchaser does not utilize any of the Supplies at the Property prior to Wilmar removing the same as provided above). In any event and notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, no adjustments or prorations will be made at Closing for the value of any Supplies or the use thereof prior to Closing and any Supplies used after the Closing shall be at the sole cost and expense of Purchaser. The provisions of this Section 3.7 shall survive Closing.

ARTICLE IV
TITLE

4.1    Title Documents. Within 10 days after the Effective Date, Seller shall cause to be delivered to Purchaser a standard form commitment or preliminary title report (“Title Commitment”) to provide the Title Policy, together with copies of all instruments identified as exceptions therein (together with the Title Commitment, referred to herein as the “Title Documents”). Seller shall be responsible only for payment of the base premium for the Title Policy and the cost of the extended coverage endorsement. Purchaser shall be solely responsible for obtaining the Title Policy from the Title Insurer and for payment of all other costs relating to procurement of the Title Commitment, the Title Policy, and any additional requested endorsements.

4.2    Survey. Subject to Section 3.5.2, within 3 Business Days after the Effective Date, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser any existing survey of the Property (the “Existing Survey”). Purchaser may, at its sole cost and expense, order a new or updated survey of the Property either before or after the Effective Date (such new or updated survey, together with the Existing Survey, is referred to herein as the “Survey”).

4.3     Objection and Response Process. On or before the date which is 15 days after Seller delivers the Title Documents and Survey to Purchaser, which may be delivered via E-Mail to counsel for Purchaser (the “Objection Deadline”), Purchaser shall give written notice (the “Objection Notice”) to the attorneys for Seller of any matter set forth in the Title Documents and the Survey to which Purchaser objects (the “Objections”). If Purchaser fails to tender an Objection Notice on or before the Objection Deadline, Purchaser shall be deemed to have approved and irrevocably waived any objections to any matters covered by the Title Documents and the Survey. On or before 20 days after the Effective Date (the “Response Deadline”), Seller may, in Seller’s sole discretion, give Purchaser notice (the “Response Notice”) of those Objections which Seller is willing to cure, if any. Seller shall be entitled to reasonable adjournments of the Closing Date to cure the Objections, not to exceed 30 days in the aggregate. If Seller fails to deliver a Response Notice by the Response Deadline, Seller shall be deemed to have elected not to cure or otherwise resolve any matter set forth in the Objection Notice. If Purchaser is dissatisfied with the Response Notice or the lack of Response Notice, Purchaser may, as its exclusive remedy, exercise its right to terminate this Contract prior to the expiration of the Feasibility Period in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.2. If Purchaser fails to timely exercise such right, Purchaser shall be deemed to accept the Title Documents and Survey with resolution, if any, of the Objections set forth in the Response Notice (or if no Response Notice is tendered, without any resolution of the Objections) and without any reduction or abatement of the Purchase Price.
4.4    Permitted Exceptions. The Deed delivered pursuant to this Contract shall be subject to the following, all of which shall be deemed “Permitted Exceptions”:
4.4.1    Subject to Purchaser’s objection and termination rights set forth in Section 4.3, all matters shown in the Title Documents and the Survey, other than (a) those Objections, if any, which Seller has agreed to cure pursuant to the Response Notice under Section 4.3, (b) mechanics’ liens and taxes due and payable with respect to the period preceding Closing, (c) the standard exception regarding the rights of parties in possession, which shall be modified to be limited to those parties in possession pursuant to the Leases, and (d) the standard exception pertaining to taxes and assessments, which shall be limited to taxes and assessments not yet due and payable as of the Closing Date;
4.4.2    All Leases;
4.4.3    Applicable zoning and governmental regulations and ordinances;

6



4.4.4    Any defects in or objections to title to the Property, or title exceptions or encumbrances, arising by, through or under Purchaser.
4.5    Existing Deed of Trust. It is understood and agreed that, whether or not Purchaser gives an Objection Notice with respect thereto, any deeds of trust and/or mortgages which secure the Note (collectively, the “Deed of Trust”) shall not be deemed Permitted Exceptions, whether Purchaser gives further written notice of such or not, and shall be paid off, satisfied, discharged and/or cured from proceeds of the Purchase Price at Closing.

4.6    Subsequently Disclosed Exceptions. If at any time after the expiration of the Feasibility Period, any update to the Title Commitment or Existing Survey discloses any additional item that materially adversely affects title to the Property which was not disclosed on any version of or update to the Title Commitment delivered to Purchaser during the Feasibility Period (the “New Exception”), Purchaser shall have a period of 5 days from the date of its receipt of such update (the “New Exception Review Period”) to review and notify Seller in writing of Purchaser’s approval or disapproval of the New Exception. If Purchaser fails to approve or disapprove of any New Exception, such New Exception shall be deemed to be a Permitted Exception. If Purchaser disapproves of the New Exception, Seller may, in Seller’s sole discretion, notify Purchaser as to whether it is willing to cure the New Exception. If Seller elects to cure the New Exception, Seller shall be entitled to reasonable adjournments of the Closing Date to cure the New Exception, not to exceed 30 days in the aggregate. If Seller fails to deliver a notice to Purchaser within 3 days after the expiration of the New Exception Review Period, Seller shall be deemed to have elected not to cure the New Exception. If Purchaser is dissatisfied with Seller’s response, or lack thereof, Purchaser may, as its exclusive remedy elect either: (i) to terminate this Contract, in which event the Deposit shall be promptly returned to Purchaser or (ii) to waive the New Exception and proceed with the transactions contemplated by this Contract, in which event Purchaser shall be deemed to have approved the New Exception. If Purchaser fails to notify Seller of its election to terminate this Contract in accordance with the foregoing sentence within 6 days after the expiration of the New Exception Review Period, Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected to approve and irrevocably waive any objections to the New Exception.

4.7    Purchaser Financing. Purchaser assumes full responsibility to obtain the funds required for settlement, and Purchaser’s acquisition of such funds shall not be a contingency to the Closing.

4.8.    Housing Assistance Program Vouchers. If there are any tenants with HAP Tenant Based Voucher Contracts, Purchaser acknowledges that there are tenants with HAP Tenant Based Voucher Contracts and that the HAP Tenant Based Voucher Contract(s) require(s) the satisfaction by Purchaser of certain requirements as set forth therein and established by the Baltimore County Office of Housing and the Metropolitan Baltimore Quadel (collectively, the “Housing Authority”) to allow for the assumption of the HAP Tenant Based Voucher Contract(s), Purchaser agrees that, at the Closing, either (a) Purchaser shall assume all obligations under the HAP Tenant Based Voucher Contract(s) and accept title to the applicable Property subject to the same, or (b) the existing HAP Tenant Based Voucher Contract(s) shall be terminated, and Purchaser shall enter into replacement HAP Tenant Based Voucher Contract(s) which are acceptable to the Housing Authority (collectively, the foregoing (a) and (b) referred to herein as the “HAP Tenant Based Voucher Assumption”). Seller agrees to reasonably cooperate with Purchaser, at no out-of-pocket cost to Seller, in obtaining the HAP Tenant Based Voucher Assumption by executing any applications or other forms reasonably required by the Housing Authority in connection therewith. To the extent that the Housing Authority fails to properly update its records and makes payments under the HAP Tenant Based Voucher Contracts to Seller after the Closing Date, Seller shall promptly remit such payments to Purchaser within two (2) Business Day’s after receipt thereof.

5.3.9    Any necessary state, county or local governmental transfer tax forms or returns.

5.4    Closing Prorations and Adjustments.

5.4.1    General. All normal and customarily proratable items, including, without limitation, collected rents, operating expenses, personal property taxes, other operating expenses and fees, shall be prorated as of the Closing Date, Seller being charged or credited, as appropriate, for all of same attributable to the period up to the Closing Date (and credited for any amounts paid by Seller attributable to the period on or after the Closing Date, if assumed by Purchaser) and Purchaser being responsible for, and credited or charged, as the case may be, for all of the same attributable to the period on and after the Closing Date. Seller shall prepare a proration schedule (the “Proration Schedule”) of the adjustments described in this Section 5.4 prior to Closing and shall use good faith efforts to deliver such Proration Schedule 2 business days prior to Closing.

5.4.2    Operating Expenses. All of the operating, maintenance, taxes (other than real estate taxes), and other expenses incurred in operating the Property that Seller customarily pays, and any other

9



costs incurred in the ordinary course of business for the management and operation of the Property, shall be prorated on an accrual basis. Seller shall pay all such expenses that accrue prior to the Closing Date and Purchaser shall pay all such expenses that accrue from and after the Closing Date.

5.4.3    Utilities. The final readings and final billings for utilities will be made if possible as of the Closing Date, in which case Seller shall pay all such bills as of the Closing Date and no proration shall be made at the Closing with respect to utility bills. Otherwise, a proration shall be made based upon the parties’ reasonable good faith estimate, and the parties shall reprorate once the utility bills for the period in question are available subject to Section 5.5 of this Agreement. Seller shall be entitled to the return of any deposit(s) posted by it with any utility company, and Seller shall notify each utility company serving the Property to terminate Seller’s account, effective as of noon on the Closing Date. Seller shall have no responsibility or liability for Purchaser’s failure to arrange utility service for the Property as of the Closing Date. Purchaser shall indemnify, hold harmless and, if requested by Seller (in Seller’s sole discretion), defend (with counsel approved by Seller) Seller’s Indemnified Parties from and against any and all Losses arising from or related to Purchaser’s failure to arrange utility service as of the Closing Date.

5.4.4    Real Estate Taxes. Any real estate ad valorem or similar taxes for the Property, or any installment of assessments payable in installments which installment is payable in the calendar year of Closing, shall be prorated to the date of Closing, based upon actual days involved. The proration of real property taxes or installments of assessments shall be based upon 105% of the most recent ascertainable real property tax bill. The proration of real property taxes or installments of assessments shall be final and not subject to re-adjustment after Closing.

5.4.5    Property Contracts. Purchaser shall assume at Closing the obligations under the Property Contracts assumed by Purchaser; however, operating expenses shall be prorated under Section 5.4.2. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller shall be entitled to retain 20% of any unamortized "upfront" or "bonus" fees payable to the property owner before or upon contract commencement under the existing Property Contract with Comcast. The remainder of any such unamortized fees shall be credited to Purchaser at Closing. Such fees shall be amortized over the initial term of the applicable Property Contract (not including any extension or renewal options). For purposes of illustration only, if Seller received a $10,000 upfront bonus on a 5 year bulk services Property Contract, and the Closing occurs on the fourth anniversary of such Property Contract, the unamortized amount to be prorated shall be $2,000, of which Seller shall retain $400 and Purchaser shall be credited $1,600.

5.4.6    Leases.
All collected rent (whether fixed monthly rentals, additional rentals, escalation rentals, retroactive rentals, operating cost pass-throughs or other sums and charges payable by Tenants under the Leases), income and expenses from any portion of the Property shall be prorated as of the Closing Date. Purchaser shall receive all collected rent and income attributable to dates from and after the Closing Date. Seller shall receive all collected rent and income attributable to dates prior to the Closing Date. In addition, with respect to the rebilling contract for the Property, Seller shall receive a credit at Closing equal to the one month average of the amount of the monthly utility bill associated with the Property for the preceding 12 months multiplied by 2, plus a credit for the prorated portion of the month of Closing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no prorations shall be made in relation to either (a) non-delinquent rents which have not been collected as of the Closing Date, or (b) delinquent rents existing, if any, as of the Closing Date (the foregoing (a) and (b) referred to herein as the “Uncollected Rents”). In adjusting for Uncollected Rents, no adjustments shall be made in Seller’s favor for rents which have accrued and are unpaid as of the Closing, but Purchaser shall pay Seller such accrued Uncollected Rents as and when collected by Purchaser. For a period of 120 days following Closing, Purchaser agrees to bill Tenants of the Property for all Uncollected Rents and to take

10



reasonable actions (which shall not include an obligation to commence legal action) to collect Uncollected Rents. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser’s obligation to collect Uncollected Rents shall be limited to Uncollected Rents of not more than 90 days past due, and Purchaser’s collection of rents shall be applied, first, towards current rent and other amounts due and owing under the Leases, second, to Purchaser’s reasonable third-party costs of such collection, and third, to Uncollected Rents. After the Closing, Seller shall continue to have the right, but not the obligation, in its own name, to demand payment of and to collect Uncollected Rents owed to Seller by any Tenant, which right shall include, without limitation, the right to continue or commence legal actions or proceedings against any Tenant and the delivery of the Leases Assignment shall not constitute a waiver by Seller of such right; provided however, that the foregoing right of Seller shall be limited to actions seeking monetary damages and, in no event, shall Seller seek to evict any Tenants in any action to collect Uncollected Rents. Purchaser agrees to cooperate with Seller in connection with all efforts by Seller to collect such Uncollected Rents and to take all steps, whether before or after the Closing Date, as may be necessary to carry out the intention of the foregoing; provided, however, that Purchaser’s obligation to cooperate with Seller pursuant to this sentence shall not obligate Purchaser to terminate any Tenant lease with an existing Tenant or evict any existing Tenant from the Property.
5.4.6.1    At Closing, Purchaser shall receive a credit against the Purchase Price in an amount equal to the received and unapplied balance of all cash (or cash equivalent) Tenant Deposits, including, but not limited to, security, damage, pet or other refundable deposits paid by any of the Tenants to secure their respective obligations under the Leases, together, in all cases, with any interest payable to the Tenants thereunder as may be required by their respective Tenant Lease or state law (the “Tenant Security Deposit Balance”). Any cash (or cash equivalents) held by Seller which constitutes the Tenant Security Deposit Balance shall be retained by Seller in exchange for the foregoing credit against the Purchase Price and shall not be transferred by Seller pursuant to this Contract (or any of the documents delivered at Closing), but the obligation with respect to the Tenant Security Deposit Balance nonetheless shall be assumed by Purchaser. The Tenant Security Deposit Balance shall not include any non-refundable deposits or fees paid by Tenants to Seller, either pursuant to the Leases or otherwise.

5.4.7    Insurance. No proration shall be made in relation to insurance premiums and insurance policies will not be assigned to Purchaser. Seller shall have the risk of loss of the Property until Closing, after which time the risk of loss shall pass to Purchaser and Purchaser shall be responsible for obtaining its own insurance thereafter.

5.4.8    Employees. All of Seller’s and Seller’s manager’s on-site employees shall have their employment at the Property terminated as of the Closing Date. Purchaser shall have no obligation to hire any of Seller’s and Seller’s manager’s on-site employees.

5.4.9    Closing Costs. Purchaser shall pay any premiums or fees required to be paid by Purchaser with respect to the Title Policy pursuant to Section 4.1 and one-half of any transfer, sales, use, gross receipts or similar taxes on the transfer of the Property, and one-half of the customary closing costs of the Escrow Agent. Seller shall pay the base premium for the Title Policy and the extended coverage endorsement to the extent required by Section 4.1, the cost of recording any instruments required to discharge any liens or encumbrances against the Property not caused by Purchaser’s actions, one-half of any transfer, sales, use, gross receipts or similar taxes on the transfer of the Property, and one-half of the customary closing costs of the Escrow Agent.

5.4.10    Utility Contracts. If Seller has entered into an agreement for the purchase of electricity, gas or other utility service for the Property or a group of properties (including the Property) (a “Utility Contract”), or an affiliate of Seller has entered into a Utility Contract, then Seller shall assign and Purchaser

11



shall assume the Utility Contract with respect to the Property, and if required by the terms of such Utility Contract, Purchaser shall attempt to obtain consent to such assignment and assumption, and Purchaser shall hold harmless and, if requested by Seller (in Seller’s sole discretion), defend (with counsel approved by Seller) Seller’s Indemnified Parties from and against any and all Losses arising from or related to Purchaser’s failure to obtain such consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller may instead elect to receive a credit at Closing equal to the reasonably calculated costs of the Utility Contract attributable to the Property from and after the Closing, and Seller shall remain responsible for payments under the Utility Contract.

5.4.11    Rent-Ready Condition. Seller agrees that (a) the vacant Tenant Units will be in Rent-Ready Condition five (5) business days before the Closing Date, or (b) Purchaser shall receive a credit against the Purchase Price in an amount equal to the product of (i) the number of Tenant Units that are vacant and not in Rent-Ready Condition five (5) business days prior to the Closing Date, if any, and (ii) $750.00.

5.4.12    Possession. Possession of the Property, subject to the Leases, Property Contracts, other than Terminated Contracts, and Permitted Exceptions, shall be delivered to Purchaser at the Closing upon release from escrow of all items to be delivered by Purchaser pursuant to Section 5.3. To the extent in Seller’s possession or reasonable control, originals or copies of the Leases and Property Contracts, lease files, warranties, guaranties, operating manuals, keys to the property, and Seller’s books and records (other than proprietary information) (collectively, “Seller’s Property-Related Files and Records”) regarding the Property shall be made available to Purchaser at the Property after the Closing.

5.4.13    Records Hold Period. Purchaser agrees, for a period of not less than three (3) years after the Closing (the “Records Hold Period”), to (a) provide and allow Seller reasonable access to Seller’s Property-Related Files and Records for purposes of inspection and copying thereof, and (b) reasonably maintain and preserve Seller’s Property-Related Files and Records. If at any time after the Records Hold Period, Purchaser desires to dispose of Seller’s Property-Related Files and Records, Purchaser must first provide Seller prior written notice (the “Records Disposal Notice”). Seller shall have a period of 30 days after receipt of the Records Disposal Notice to enter the Property (or such other location where such records are then stored) and remove or copy those of Seller’s Property-Related Files and Records that Seller desires to retain. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser shall not be required to provide any information concerning (a) Purchaser’s capital structure or debt, (b) Purchaser’s financial analyses or projections, investment analyses, account summaries or other documents prepared solely for Purchaser’s internal purposes and not directly related to the operation of the Property; (c) Purchaser’s tax returns, except that Purchaser shall make its tax returns for the year of Closing available to Seller to the extent they cover profits, losses and operations at the Property; (d) Purchaser’s status reports, analyses and summaries prepared solely for Purchaser’s investors, and (e) financial statements of Purchaser or any affiliate of Purchaser (other than Property-level financial statements).

5.5    Post-Closing Adjustments. Purchaser or Seller may request that Purchaser and Seller undertake to re-adjust any item on the Proration Schedule (or any item omitted therefrom), with the exception of real property taxes which shall be final and not subject to readjustment, in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.4 of this Contract; provided, however, that neither party shall have any obligation to re-adjust any items (a) after the expiration of 90 days after Closing, or (b) subject to such 90-day period, unless such items exceed $5,000.00 in the aggregate.

ARTICLE VI
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF SELLER AND PURCHASER

6.1    Seller’s Representations. Except, in all cases, for any fact, information or condition disclosed in the Title Documents, the Permitted Exceptions, the Property Contracts, or the Materials, or which is otherwise known by Purchaser prior to the Closing, Seller represents and warrants to Purchaser the following (collectively, the “Seller’s Representations”) as of the Effective Date and as of the Closing Date; provided that Purchaser’s remedies if any such Seller’s Representations are untrue as of the Closing Date are limited to those set forth in Section 8.1.

6.1.1    Seller is validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the state of its formation set forth in the initial paragraph of this Contract; and has or at the Closing shall have the entity power and authority to sell and convey the Property and to execute the documents to be executed by Seller and prior to the Closing will have taken as applicable, all corporate, partnership, limited liability company or equivalent entity actions required for the execution and delivery of this Contract, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Contract. The compliance with or fulfillment of the terms and conditions hereof will not conflict with, or result in a breach of, the terms, conditions or provisions of, or constitute a default under, any contract to which Seller is a party or by which Seller is otherwise bound, which conflict, breach or default would have a material adverse effect on Seller’s ability to consummate the transaction contemplated by this Contract or on the Property. This Contract is a valid and binding agreement against Seller in accordance with its terms;

6.1.2    Seller is not a “foreign person,” as that term is used and defined in the Internal Revenue Code, Section 1445, as amended;

6.1.3    Except for (a) any actions by Seller to evict Tenants under the Leases, or (b) any matter covered by Seller’s current insurance policy(ies), to Seller’s knowledge, there are no material actions, proceedings, litigation or governmental investigations or condemnation actions either pending or threatened in writing against the Property, which will adversely impact Seller’s ability to convey the Property;

6.1.4    To Seller’s knowledge, except for violations cured or remedied on or before the date hereof, as of the date of this Agreement, Seller has not received any written notice from any governmental authority of any violation of any zoning law applicable to the property.

6.1.7    To Seller’s knowledge, the Property Contracts List (as updated pursuant to Section 5.2.11) is complete and accurate in all material respects; and

6.1.8    Seller hereby discloses, and Purchaser acknowledges, that on or about September 1, 2014, a second-floor deck adjacent to one of the Tenant Units at the Property collapsed (the “Casualty”). Following the Casualty, and in accordance with direction given by the applicable governmental authorities, Seller engaged a third party engineering firm to conduct an inspection of all other decks at the Property.

13



Pursuant to the results of such inspections, Seller has undertaken (and will complete prior to Closing) to rebuild the deck destroyed in the Casualty and to make repairs to 8 other decks at the Property (collectively, the “Deck Repairs”). The Deck Repairs shall be completed by Seller in accordance with all applicable laws and at or prior to Closing Seller shall deliver to Purchaser evidence that the Deck Repairs have passed inspection by Baltimore County. Seller hereby agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and, if requested by Purchaser (in Purchaser's sole discretion), defend (with counsel approved by Purchaser) Purchaser, together with Purchaser's affiliates, parent and subsidiary entities, successors, assigns, partners, managers, members, lenders, employees, officers, directors, trustees, shareholders, counsel, representatives, agents, and property manager (collectively, including Purchaser, “Purchaser's Indemnified Parties”), from and against any and all damages, mechanic's liens, materialmen's liens, liabilities, penalties, interest, losses, demands, actions, causes of action, claims (including, without limitation, claims by governmental authorities), costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees, including the cost of in-house counsel and appeals) arising from or related to the Casualty or the Deck Repairs. Except for the Baltimore County Code of Enforcement Notice of Correction dated September 4, 2014, Seller has not received any written notice from any governmental authority requiring any specific changes or repairs to the Property arising from the Casualty. The provisions of this Section shall survive Closing for a period of three (3) years.
6.1.9    There are no collective bargaining agreements affecting Seller’s employees at the Property.
6.2    AS-IS. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Seller’s Representations: The Property is expressly purchased and sold “AS IS,” “WHERE IS,” and “WITH ALL FAULTS.”

6.2.1    The Purchase Price and the terms and conditions set forth herein are the result of arm’s-length bargaining between entities familiar with transactions of this kind, and said price, terms and conditions reflect the fact that Purchaser shall have the benefit of, but is not relying upon, any information provided by Seller or Broker or statements, representations or warranties, express or implied, made by or enforceable directly against Seller or Broker, including, without limitation, any relating to the value of the Property, the physical or environmental condition of the Property, any state, federal, county or local law, ordinance, order or permit; or the suitability, compliance or lack of compliance of the Property with any regulation, or any other attribute or matter of or relating to the Property (other than any covenants of title contained in the Deed conveying the Property and Seller’s Representations). Purchaser agrees that Seller shall not be responsible or liable to Purchaser for any defects, errors or omissions in the Materials, or on account of any conditions affecting the Property.

6.2.2    Purchaser, its successors and assigns, and anyone claiming by, through or under Purchaser, hereby fully releases Seller’s Indemnified Parties from, and irrevocably waives its right to maintain, any and all claims and causes of action that it or they may now have or hereafter acquire against Seller’s Indemnified Parties with respect to any and all Losses arising from or related to any defects, errors, omissions in the Materials or other conditions affecting the Property.

6.2.3    Purchaser represents and warrants that, as of the date hereof and as of the Closing Date, it has or shall have reviewed and conducted such independent analyses, studies (including, without limitation, environmental studies and analyses concerning the presence of lead, asbestos, water intrusion and/or fungal growth and any resulting damage, PCBs and radon in and about the Property), reports, investigations and inspections if and to the extent it deems appropriate in connection with the Property. If Seller provides or has provided any documents, summaries, opinions or work product of consultants, surveyors, architects, engineers, title companies, governmental authorities or any other person or entity with respect to the Property, including, without limitation, the offering prepared by Broker, Purchaser and Seller

14



agree that Seller has done so or shall do so only for the convenience of both parties, Purchaser shall not rely thereon and the reliance by Purchaser upon any such documents, summaries, opinions or work product shall not create or give rise to any liability of or against Seller’s Indemnified Parties. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that no representation has been made and no responsibility is assumed by Seller with respect to current and future applicable zoning or building code requirements or the compliance of the Property with any other laws, rules, ordinances or regulations, the financial earning capacity or expense history of the Property, the continuation of contracts, continued occupancy levels of the Property, or any part thereof, or the continued occupancy by tenants of any Leases or, without limiting any of the foregoing, occupancy at Closing.

6.2.4    Prior to Closing, Seller, at its sole cost and expense, shall have the right, but not the obligation, to enforce its rights against any and all Property occupants, guests or tenants. Purchaser agrees that the departure or removal, prior to Closing, of any of such guests, occupants or tenants shall not be the basis for, nor shall it give rise to, any claim on the part of Purchaser, nor shall it affect the obligations of Purchaser under this Contract in any manner whatsoever; and Purchaser shall close title and accept delivery of the Deed with or without such tenants in possession and without any allowance or reduction in the Purchase Price under this Contract.

6.2.5    Purchaser hereby releases Seller from any and all claims and liabilities relating to the matters set forth in this Section.

6.3.    Survival of Seller’s Representations. Seller and Purchaser agree that Seller’s Representations shall survive Closing for a period of 6 months (the “Survival Period”). Seller shall have no liability after the Survival Period with respect to Seller’s Representations contained herein except to the extent that Purchaser commenced litigation against Seller during the Survival Period for breach of any of Seller’s Representations. Under no circumstances shall Seller be liable to Purchaser for more than $350,000 in any individual instance or in the aggregate for all breaches of Seller’s Representations, nor shall Purchaser be entitled to bring any claim for a breach of Seller’s Representations unless the claim for damages (either in the aggregate or as to any individual claim) by Purchaser exceeds $5,000. In the event that Seller breaches any representation contained in Section 6.1 and Purchaser had knowledge of such breach prior to the Closing Date, and elected to close regardless, Purchaser shall be deemed to have waived any right of recovery, and Seller shall not have any liability in connection therewith. Seller hereby agrees that it shall remain in existence and shall not dissolve through the date of expiration of the Survival Period. The foregoing agreement of Seller shall survive the Closing and the delivery of the Deed to Purchaser.

6.4    Definition of Seller’s Knowledge. Any representations and warranties made “to the knowledge of Seller” shall not be deemed to imply any duty of inquiry. For purposes of this Contract, the term Seller’s “knowledge” shall mean and refer only to actual knowledge of the Regional Property Manager and the Community Manager and shall not be construed to refer to the knowledge of any other partner, officer, director, agent, employee or representative of Seller, or any affiliate of Seller, or to impose upon such Regional Property Manager and Community Manager any duty to investigate the matter to which such actual knowledge or the absence thereof pertains, or to impose upon such Regional Property Manager and Community Manager any individual personal liability. As used herein, the term “Regional Property Manager” shall refer to Jason Kessler who is the regional property manager handling this Property and the term “Community Manager” shall refer to Rebecca Kiefer who is the community manager handling this Property.

The compliance with or fulfillment of the terms and conditions hereof will not conflict with, or result in a breach of, the terms, conditions or provisions of, or constitute a default under, any contract to which Purchaser is a party or by which Purchaser is otherwise bound, which conflict, breach or default would have a material adverse effect on Purchaser’s ability to consummate the transaction contemplated by this Contract. This Contract is a valid, binding and enforceable agreement against Purchaser in accordance with its terms.

6.5.3    No pending or, to the knowledge of Purchaser, threatened litigation exists which if determined adversely would restrain the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Contract or would declare illegal, invalid or non-binding any of Purchaser’s obligations or covenants to Seller.

6.5.4    Other than Seller’s Representations, Purchaser has not relied on any representation or warranty made by Seller or any representative of Seller (including, without limitation, Broker) in connection with this Contract and the acquisition of the Property.

6.5.5    The Broker and its affiliates do not, and will not at the Closing, have any direct or indirect legal, beneficial, economic or voting interest in Purchaser (or in an assignee of Purchaser, which pursuant to Section 13.3, acquires the Property at the Closing), nor has Purchaser or any affiliate of Purchaser granted (as of the Effective Date or the Closing Date) the Broker or any of its affiliates any right or option to acquire any direct or indirect legal, beneficial, economic or voting interest in Purchaser.

6.5.6    Purchaser is not a Prohibited Person.

ARTICLE X
DEFAULTS AND REMEDIES

10.1    Purchaser Default. If Purchaser defaults on its obligations hereunder to (a) deliver the Initial Deposit or Additional Deposit (or any other deposit or payment required of Purchaser hereunder), (b) deliver to Seller the deliveries specified under Section 5.3 on the date required thereunder, or (c) deliver the Purchase Price in accordance with Article II and close on the purchase of the Property on the Closing Date, then, immediately and without the right to receive notice or to cure pursuant to Section 2.3.3, Purchaser shall forfeit the Deposit, and the Escrow Agent shall deliver the Deposit to Seller, and neither party shall be obligated to proceed with the purchase and sale of the Property. If Purchaser defaults on any of its other representations, warranties or obligations under this Contract, and such default continues for more than 10 days after written notice from Seller, then Purchaser shall forfeit the Deposit, and the Escrow Agent shall deliver the Deposit to Seller, and neither party shall be obligated to proceed with the purchase and sale of the Property. The Deposit is liquidated damages and recourse to the Deposit is, except for Purchaser’s indemnity and confidentiality obligations hereunder, Seller’s sole and exclusive remedy for Purchaser’s failure to perform its obligation to purchase the Property or breach of a representation or warranty. Seller expressly waives the remedies of specific performance and additional damages for such default by Purchaser. SELLER AND PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SELLER’S DAMAGES WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE, AND THAT THE DEPOSIT IS A REASONABLE ESTIMATE OF SELLER’S DAMAGES RESULTING FROM A DEFAULT BY PURCHASER IN ITS OBLIGATION TO PURCHASE THE PROPERTY. SELLER AND PURCHASER FURTHER AGREE THAT THIS SECTION 10.1 IS INTENDED TO AND DOES LIQUIDATE THE AMOUNT OF DAMAGES DUE SELLER, AND SHALL BE SELLER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST PURCHASER, BOTH AT LAW AND IN EQUITY, ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO A BREACH BY PURCHASER OF ITS OBLIGATION TO CONSUMMATE THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS CONTRACT, OTHER THAN WITH RESPECT TO PURCHASER’S INDEMNITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER.

10.2    Seller Default. If Seller (i) defaults on its obligations hereunder to deliver to Escrow Agent the deliveries specified under Section 5.2 on the date required thereunder, or to close on the sale of the Property on the Closing Date, or (ii) prior to the Closing defaults on its covenants or obligations under this Contract, and such default continues for more than 10 days after written notice from Purchaser, then, at Purchaser’s election and as Purchaser’s exclusive remedy, Purchaser may either (a) terminate this Contract, and all payments and things of value, including the Deposit, provided by Purchaser hereunder shall be returned to Purchaser and Purchaser may recover, as its sole recoverable damages (but without limiting its right to receive a refund of the Deposit), its direct and actual out-of-pocket expenses and costs (documented by paid invoices to third parties) in connection with this transaction, which damages shall not exceed $300,000 in the aggregate, or (b) subject to the conditions below, seek specific performance of Seller’s obligation to close on the sale of the Property pursuant to this Contract (but not damages). Purchaser may seek specific performance of Seller’s obligation to close on the sale of the Property pursuant to this Contract only if, as a condition precedent to initiating such litigation for specific performance, Purchaser shall (x) not otherwise be in default under this Contract; and (y) file suit therefor with the court on or before the 90th day after the Closing Date. If Purchaser fails to file an action for specific performance within 90 days after the Closing Date, then Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected to terminate the Contract in accordance with subsection (a) above. Purchaser agrees that it shall promptly deliver to Seller an assignment of all of Purchaser’s right, title and interest in and to (together with possession of) all plans, studies, surveys, reports, and other materials paid for with the out-of-pocket expenses reimbursed by Seller pursuant to the first sentence of this Section. SELLER AND PURCHASER FURTHER AGREE THAT THIS SECTION 10.2 IS INTENDED TO AND DOES LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF DAMAGES DUE PURCHASER AND THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE

19



TO PURCHASER, AND SHALL BE PURCHASER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST SELLER, BOTH AT LAW AND IN EQUITY ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO A BREACH BY SELLER OF ITS COVENANTS OR ITS OBLIGATION TO CONSUMMATE THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS CONTRACT. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MAY PURCHASER SEEK OR BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, SPECULATIVE OR INDIRECT DAMAGES, ALL OF WHICH PURCHASER SPECIFICALLY WAIVES, FROM SELLER FOR ANY BREACH BY SELLER, OF ITS COVENANTS OR ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS CONTRACT. PURCHASER SPECIFICALLY WAIVES THE RIGHT TO FILE ANY LIS PENDENS OR ANY LIEN AGAINST THE PROPERTY UNLESS AND UNTIL IT HAS IRREVOCABLY ELECTED TO SEEK SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE OF THIS CONTRACT AND HAS FILED AND IS DILIGENTLY PURSUING AN ACTION SEEKING SUCH REMEDY.

ARTICLE XI
RISK OF LOSS OR CASUALTY

11.1    Major Damage. In the event that the Property is damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty prior to Closing, and the cost for demolition, site cleaning, restoration, replacement, or other repairs (collectively, the “Repairs”) is more than $750,000 (a “Major Damage”), then Seller shall have no obligation to make such Repairs, and shall notify Purchaser in writing of such damage or destruction (the “Damage Notice”). If there is a Major Damage, then Purchaser may elect, by delivering written notice to Seller on or before the earlier of (x) Closing and (y) the date which is ten (10) days after Purchaser’s receipt of the Damage Notice, to terminate this Contract, in which event the Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser. In the event Purchaser fails to timely terminate this Contract pursuant to this Section 11.1, this transaction shall be closed in accordance with Section 11.3 below.

11.2    Minor Damage. In the event that the Property is damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty prior to Closing, and the cost of Repairs is equal to or less than $750,000, then this transaction shall be closed in accordance with Section 11.3, notwithstanding such casualty. In such event, Seller may at its election endeavor to make such Repairs to the extent of any recovery from insurance carried on the Property, if such Repairs can be reasonably effected before the Closing. Regardless of Seller’s election to commence such Repairs, or Seller’s ability to complete such Repairs prior to Closing, this transaction shall be closed in accordance with Section 11.3 below.

11.3    Closing. In the event Purchaser fails to terminate this Contract following a casualty as set forth in Section 11.1, or in the event of a casualty as set forth in Section 11.2, then this transaction shall be closed in accordance with the terms of the Contract, at Seller’s election, either (i) for the full Purchase Price, notwithstanding any such casualty, in which case Purchaser shall, at Closing, execute and deliver an assignment and assumption (in a form reasonably required by Seller) of Seller’s rights and obligations with respect to the insurance claim related to such casualty, and thereafter Purchaser shall receive all insurance proceeds pertaining to such claim, less any amounts which may already have been spent by Seller for Repairs (plus a credit against the Purchase Price at Closing in the amount of any deductible payable by Seller in connection therewith); or (ii) for the full Purchase Price less a credit to Purchaser in the amount necessary to complete such Repairs (less any amounts which may already have been spent by Seller for Repairs).

11.4    Repairs. To the extent that Seller elects to commence any Repairs prior to Closing, then Seller shall be entitled to receive and apply available insurance proceeds to any portion of such Repairs completed or installed prior to Closing, with Purchaser being responsible for completion of such Repairs after Closing. To the extent that any Repairs have been commenced prior to Closing, then the Property Contracts shall include, and Purchaser shall assume at Closing, all construction and other contracts entered

20



into by Seller in connection with such Repairs; provided however, that (except in the event of emergency, as determined in Seller’s sole discretion) Seller will consult with Purchaser prior to entering into any such contract if Purchaser will likely have to assume such Contract. Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, Seller retains the sole right and authority to enter into any such contract.

ARTICLE XII
EMINENT DOMAIN

12.1    Eminent Domain. In the event that, at the time of Closing, any material part of the Property is (or previously has been) acquired, or is about to be acquired, by any governmental agency by the powers of eminent domain or transfer in lieu thereof (or in the event that at such time there is any notice of any such acquisition or intent to acquire by any such governmental agency), Purchaser shall have the right, at Purchaser’s option, to terminate this Contract by giving written notice on the earlier of (x) Closing or (y) 10 days after Purchaser’s receipt from Seller of notice of the occurrence of such event, and if Purchaser so terminates this Contract, Purchaser shall recover the Deposit hereunder. If Purchaser fails to timely terminate this Contract this transaction shall be closed in accordance with the terms of this Contract for the full Purchase Price and Purchaser shall receive the full benefit of any condemnation award. It is expressly agreed between the parties hereto that this section shall in no way apply to customary dedications for public purposes which may be necessary for the development of the Property.

ARTICLE XIII

Each party shall be entitled to change its address for notices from time to time by delivering to the other party notice thereof in the manner herein provided for the delivery of notices.
