With respect to any objections to title set forth in such notice, Seller shall have the same option to cure and Purchaser shall have the same option to accept title subject to such matters or to terminate this Agreement as those which apply to any notice of objections made by Purchaser on or before the Title Objection Date

Items (1)-(5) below will be prorated at Closing utilizing the information known at that time. A post-closing true-up shall take place within ninety (90) days of the Closing Date to adjust the prorations of said items (1), (3), (4) and (5), if necessary, and within a reasonable time to adjust the proration of said item (2), if necessary. Such prorated items shall include, without limitation, the following:
(1) rents, if any, based on the amount collected for the current month. The term rents as used in this Agreement includes all payments due and payable by tenants under the Leases other than refundable deposits, application fees, late charges, pet charges and termination payments (of which deposits and termination payments shall be treated as set forth in Section 4.4(b)(1) but such other amounts shall be retained by Seller);

Seller shall pay all such expenses that accrue prior to the Close of Escrow and Buyer shall pay all such expenses accruing on the Close of Escrow and thereafter. To the extent possible, Seller and Buyer shall obtain billings and meter readings as of the Close of Escrow to aid in such prorations;
(5) if applicable, annual assessments or similar periodic charges under any private covenants, conditions, restrictions or easements affecting the Property; and

For the purposes of this Section 4.4(b)(1) the term unforfeited resident deposits means any refundable resident deposits which are held by Seller and which Seller has not applied, and is not entitled to apply, against delinquent rents, property damage or otherwise;
(2) Any ad valorem taxes paid at or prior to Closing shall be prorated based upon the amounts actually paid. If taxes and assessments for the current year have not been paid before Closing, Seller shall be charged at Closing an amount equal to that portion of such taxes and assessments which relates to the period before Closing, and Purchaser shall pay the taxes and assessments prior to their becoming delinquent. Any such apportionment made with respect to a tax year for which the tax rate or assessed valuation, or both, have not yet been fixed shall be based upon the tax rate and/or assessed valuation last fixed. To the extent that the actual taxes and assessments for the current year differ from the amount apportioned at Closing, the parties shall make all necessary adjustments by appropriate payments between themselves following Closing upon the availability of the final tax bills.
(3) Gas, electricity and other utility charges which are payable by any tenant to a third party shall not be apportioned hereunder, except as to the RUBS payments described in Section 4.4(a)(5).
(4) Seller shall pay in full prior to the Closing all leasing commissions and locators and finders fees, if any, due to leasing or other agents (pursuant to a contractual arrangement with Seller) for each Lease entered into by Seller prior to the Closing Date promptly when due. Trade payables in the nature of open accounts payable to trade vendors or suppliers and all other accounts payable which have accrued prior to the Closing Date shall be the obligation of Seller.
(5) Unpaid and delinquent rent collected by Seller and Purchaser after the date of Closing shall be delivered as follows: (a) if Seller collects any unpaid or delinquent rent for the Property, Seller shall, within fifteen (15) days after the receipt thereof, deliver to Purchaser any such rent which Purchaser is entitled to hereunder relating to the date of Closing and any period thereafter, and (b) if Purchaser collects any unpaid or delinquent rent from the Property, Purchaser shall, within fifteen (15) days after the receipt thereof, deliver to Seller any such rent which Seller is entitled to hereunder relating to the period prior to the date of Closing. Seller and Purchaser agree that all rent received by Seller or Purchaser after the Closing shall be applied first to current rentals and then to delinquent rentals, if any. Purchaser will make a good faith effort after Closing to collect all rents in the usual course of Purchasers operation of the Property, but Purchaser will not be obligated to institute any lawsuit or other collection procedures to collect delinquent rents; and
(6) If after Closing any ad valorem taxes or other assessments with respect to the Property are or become due for the year of Closing or prior years, then Seller shall pay to Purchaser, within ten (10) days following receipt of Purchasers statement therefor, (i) the full amount of such additional taxes for any
year prior to the year of Closing and (ii) Sellers share of any such additional taxes for the year of Closing, prorated in the manner set forth above; and such obligation of Seller shall not merge with the deed(s) to be delivered hereunder but shall survive the Closing.

(j) Contractors and Suppliers. All contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, architects, engineers, and others who have performed services or labor for or supplied material to Seller with respect to the Property have been paid in full, and all liens arising from any such services, labor or materials (or claims with which the passage of time or notice or both could mature into liens) have been satisfied and released.
(k) Utilities and Curb Cuts. To Sellers knowledge, all water, sewer, electric, natural gas, telephone, and storm water and drainage facilities and all other utilities required in the normal operation of the Improvements are available and are installed to the property lines of the Land, are connected to the Improvements, and are adequate to serve the Improvements for their current use.

5.2 Survival of Sellers Representations and Warranties. The representations and warranties of Seller set forth in Section 5.1 shall survive Closing for a period of one (1) year after Closing, unless notice setting forth a specific claim under any such representation or warranty shall be given to Seller within that period, in which case such representation or warranty shall survive until such claim is finally and fully resolved.
5.3 Representations and Warranties of Purchaser. Purchaser hereby makes the following representations and warranties to Seller as of the Effective Date:
(a) Organization and Authority. Purchaser has been duly organized and is validly existing as a limited liability company under the laws of the State of Delaware. Purchaser has the full right and authority to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the transaction contemplated herein pursuant hereto and to consummate or cause to be consummated the transactions contemplated herein. The person signing this Agreement on behalf of Purchaser is authorized to do so. Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement nor any other documents executed and delivered, or to be executed and delivered, by Purchaser in connection with the transactions described herein, will violate any provision of Purchasers organizational documents or of any agreements, regulations, or laws to or by which Purchaser is bound.
(b) Consents. Purchaser has obtained all consents and permissions (if any) related to the transactions herein contemplated and required under Purchasers organizational documents or any covenant, agreement, encumbrance, law or regulation by which Purchaser is bound.
(c) Pending Actions. There is no action, suit, arbitration, administrative or judicial administrative proceeding, or unsatisfied order or judgment pending or, to Purchasers knowledge, threatened against Purchaser or the transaction contemplated by this Agreement, which, if adversely determined, could individually or in the aggregate have a material adverse effect on Purchasers ability to consummate the transaction contemplated herein.
5.4 Survival of Purchasers Representations and Warranties. The representations and warranties of Purchaser set forth in Section 5.3 shall survive Closing for a period of one (1) year after Closing, unless notice setting forth a specific claim under any such representation or warranty shall be given to Purchaser within that period, in which case such representation or warranty shall survive until such claim is finally and fully resolved.
5.5 Covenants of Seller. Seller hereby covenants with Purchaser, from the Effective Date until the Closing or earlier termination of this Agreement, as follows:
(a) Satisfaction of Closing Obligation. Seller shall use reasonable and diligent efforts to satisfy each of the Closing conditions expressly set forth in Sections 4.6 and 4.7 (other than those conditions which are within Purchasers control) as soon as practicable.
(b) Action or Inaction in Conformity with Representations and Warranties. Seller shall not take any action or inaction, or commit to take any action or inaction, which would result in the representations and warranties of Seller contained in Article 5 or elsewhere in this Agreement or in any schedule, attachment or exhibit hereto or in any certificate delivered by Seller to Purchaser to not be true and correct in all respects as of the Closing.
(c) Maintenance of Property. Seller shall maintain the Property in a manner generally consistent with the manner in which Seller has maintained the Property prior to the date hereof.
(d) Provide Copies of Notices. Seller shall furnish Purchaser with a copy of all written notices received by Seller from any governmental authority or other party of any violation of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation or order of any governmental or public authority relating to the Property within five (5) business days following Sellers receipt thereof, but, if received by such date, in no event later than two (2) business days prior to the Closing Date.
(e) Execution of New Leases and Renewals. Seller shall use reasonable efforts to negotiate new leases for unrented apartment units in the Improvements and/or Lease renewals for rented apartment units in the Improvements and shall maintain an advertising and marketing program for apartment units in the Improvements consistent with Sellers past practices at the Property. Unless Purchaser agrees otherwise in writing, any new leases for such apartment units entered into by Seller after the Effective Date until the Closing or earlier termination of this Agreement shall be on Sellers standard apartment lease form for the Property and shall be consistent with Sellers past leasing practices. In all cases, Seller shall retain the discretion to set rent rates, concessions and other terms of occupancy, provided Seller shall only enter into new leases or renewals in the ordinary course of business taking into account Sellers then-current good faith evaluation of market conditions. Each such new lease or renewal entered into by Seller shall constitute a Lease for purposes of this Agreement.
(f) Maintenance of Insurance. Seller shall keep the Improvements insured against loss or damage (including rental loss) by fire and all risks covered by Sellers insurance that is currently in force, provided that Seller may make adjustments in Sellers insurance coverage for the Property which are consistent with Sellers general insurance program.
(g) Enforcement of Existing Leases. Seller shall perform the landlords material obligations to the tenants under the Leases and enforce the material obligations of the tenants under the Leases, in each case in accordance with the current management standards of Seller and its property manager for its apartment properties.
(h) Preparation of Vacant Units for Lease. Seller shall place apartment units that are now vacant or that are vacated not less than ten (10) day prior to the Closing Date into rent-ready condition on or before the Closing Date in accordance with Seller s current management standards for its apartment properties as though no sale of the Property were contemplated; provided, however, in no event shall there be more than six (6) vacant apartment units that are not in rent-ready condition on the Closing Date. Purchaser shall receive a credit at the Closing of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) per each of any such six (6) units that are not in rent-ready condition as of the Closing Date.
(i) Removal and Replacement of Tangible Personal Property. Seller shall not remove any Tangible Personal Property except as may be required for necessary repair or replacement (which repair and replacement shall be of equal quality and quantity as existed as of the time of the removal), or otherwise in accordance with current inventory and management standards of Seller and its property manager for its apartment properties.
(j) Execution of New Contracts. Seller shall not, without Purchasers prior written consent in each instance, materially amend or terminate any of the Service Contracts, or enter into any contract or agreement that will be an obligation affecting the Property or binding on Purchaser after the Closing, except that (i) Seller may enter into, amend or enforce (including enforcement by termination) service contracts in the ordinary course of business as reasonably necessary for the continued operation and maintenance of the Property, provided any new service contracts are terminable without cause or penalty on thirty (30) days notice, and (ii) Seller may conduct leasing activity as provided in Section 5.7(e) hereof. Each such new service contract entered into by Seller shall constitute a Service Contract for purposes of this Agreement.
(k) OFAC Compliance. Purchaser is currently in compliance with, and shall at all times during the term of this Agreement (including any extension thereof) remain in compliance with, the regulations of the OFAC of the Department of the Treasury (including those named on OFACs Specially Designated and Blocked Persons List) and any statute, executive order (including the September 24, 2001, Executive Order Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Persons Who Commit, Threaten to Commit, or Support Terrorism), or other governmental action relating thereto.
(l) Maintenance of Permits. Seller shall maintain in existence all licenses, permits and approvals that are now in existence with respect to, and are required for, the ownership, operation or improvement of the Property, and are of a continuing nature.
6.1 Default by Purchaser. If the sale of the Property as contemplated hereunder is not consummated due to Purchasers default hereunder, then Seller shall be entitled, as its sole and exclusive remedy for such default, to terminate this Agreement and receive from Purchaser the sum of Fifty Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($50,000.00)(the Liquidated Damages Amount) as liquidated damages for the breach of this Agreement and not as a penalty, it being agreed between the parties hereto that the actual damages to Seller in the event of such breach are impractical to ascertain and the Liquidated Damages Amount is a reasonable estimate thereof, Seller hereby expressly waiving and relinquishing any and all other remedies at law or in equity. Sellers right to receive the Liquidated Damages Amount is intended not as a penalty, but as full liquidated damages. The right to receive the Liquidated Damages Amount as full liquidated damages is Sellers sole and exclusive remedy in the event of default hereunder by Purchaser, and Seller hereby waives and releases any right to (and hereby covenants that it shall not) sue Purchaser: (a) for specific performance of this Agreement, or (b) to recover any damages of any nature or description other than or in excess of the Liquidated Damages Amount. Purchaser hereby waives and releases any right to (and hereby covenants that it shall not) sue Seller or seek or claim that the Liquidated Damages Amount (or any part thereof) on the grounds it is unreasonable in amount and exceeds Sellers actual damages or that its payment by Seller constitutes a penalty and not agreed upon and reasonable liquidated damages. This Section 6.1 is subject to Section 6.4 hereof.
6.2 Default by Seller. If the sale of the Property as contemplated hereunder is not consummated due to Sellers default hereunder, Seller may pursue any rights or remedies of Purchaser hereunder, at law or in equity. Without limitation on the foregoing, Purchaser shall have the right to seek specific performance of this Agreement, injunctive relief and other equitable remedies, but Purchaser shall not have any action for damages against Seller unless Sellers default results from one or more of the following: (a) fraudulent misrepresentation, (b) criminal conduct (i.e. conduct that constitutes a felony under applicable law), or (c) an intentional and deliberate act of Seller taken on or after the Effective Date (including, but not limited to, sale of the Property to another person or entity while this Agreement is in effect) that is intended to result in, and does result in, Purchasers inability to consummate the transaction contemplated in this Agreement.
6.3 Notice of Default; Opportunity to Cure. Neither Seller nor Purchaser shall be deemed to be in default hereunder until and unless such party has been given written notice of its failure to comply with the terms hereof and thereafter does not cure such failure within five (5) business days after receipt of such notice, except that the failure to close on the Closing Date shall be a material default for which no notice need be given.
6.4 Recoverable Damages. Notwithstanding Sections 6.1 and 6.2 hereof, in no event shall the provisions of Sections 6.1 and 6.2 limit either Purchasers or Sellers obligation to indemnify the other party or the damages recoverable by the indemnified party against the indemnifying party due to a partys express obligation to indemnify the other party in accordance with Section 3.1(c), Section 8.1 or any other provision of this Agreement.
CASUALTY AND CONDEMNATION
7.1 Casualty. If prior to Closing the Property is damaged by fire or other casualty, Seller shall estimate the cost to repair and the time required to complete repairs and will provide Purchaser written notice of Sellers estimation (the Casualty Notice) as soon as reasonably possible after the occurrence of the casualty.
(a) Material Damage. In the event of any Material Damage to or destruction of the Property or any portion thereof prior to Closing, either Seller or Purchaser may, at its option, terminate this Agreement by delivering written notice to the other on or before the expiration of thirty (30) days after the date Seller delivers the Casualty Notice to Purchaser (and if necessary, the Closing Date shall be extended to give the parties the full thirty (30) day period to make such election and to obtain insurance settlement agreements with Sellers insurers). Upon any such termination, the parties hereto shall have no further rights or obligations hereunder, other than those that by their terms survive the termination of this Agreement. If neither Seller nor Purchaser so terminates this Agreement within said thirty (30) day period, then the parties shall proceed under this Agreement and close on schedule, and as of Closing, Seller shall assign to Purchaser, without representation or warranty by or recourse against Seller, all of Sellers rights in and to any resulting insurance proceeds due Seller as a result of such damage or destruction, and Purchaser shall assume full responsibility for all needed repairs, and Purchaser shall receive a credit at Closing for any deductible amount under such insurance policies (but the amount of the deductible plus insurance proceeds shall not exceed the lesser of (A) the cost of repair or (B) the Purchase Price and a pro rata share of the rental or business loss proceeds, if any). For the purposes of this Agreement, Material Damage and Materially Damaged means damage which, in Sellers reasonable estimation, exceeds $500,000.00 to repair or which, in Sellers reasonable estimation, will take longer than ninety (90) days to repair.
(b) Not Material Damage. If the Property is not Materially Damaged, then neither Purchaser nor Seller shall have the right to terminate this Agreement, and Seller shall, at its option, either (i) repair the damage before the Closing in a manner reasonably satisfactory to Purchaser, or (ii) credit Purchaser at Closing for the reasonable cost to complete the repair (in which case Seller shall retain all insurance proceeds and Purchaser shall assume full responsibility for all needed repairs), except that Purchaser will receive loss of rent insurance proceeds applicable to the period after Closing, if any.
7.2 Condemnation. If proceedings in eminent domain are instituted with respect to the Property or any portion thereof, Purchaser may, at its option, by written notice to Seller given within ten (10) days after Seller notifies Purchaser of such proceedings (and if necessary the Closing Date shall be automatically extended to give Purchaser the full ten (10) day period to make such election), either: (i) terminate this Agreement, in which case the parties hereto shall have no further rights or obligations other than those that by their terms survive the termination of this Agreement, or (ii) proceed under this Agreement, in which event Seller shall, at the
Closing, assign to Purchaser its entire right, title and interest in and to any condemnation award, and Purchaser shall have the sole right after the Closing to negotiate and otherwise deal with the condemning authority in respect of such matter. If Purchaser does not give Seller written notice of its election within the time required above, then Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected option (ii) above.
8.1 Representation and Indemnity. Purchaser and Seller each hereby represent and warrant to the other that it has not disclosed this Agreement or the subject matter hereof to, and has not otherwise dealt with, any real estate broker, agent or salesman so as to create any legal right or claim in any such broker, agent or salesman for a real estate commission or similar fee or compensation with respect to the negotiation and/or consummation of this Agreement or the sale and conveyance of the Property by Seller to Purchaser. Purchaser and Seller shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend each other from and against any and all claims and demands for a real estate brokerage commission or similar fee or compensation arising out of any claimed dealings with the indemnifying party and relating to this Agreement or the purchase and sale of the Property (including reasonable attorneys fees and expenses and court costs incurred in defending any such claim or in enforcing this indemnity).
8.2 Survival. This ARTICLE 8 shall survive the rescission, cancellation, termination or consummation of this Agreement.
9.1 Public Disclosure. Prior to Closing, any release to the public of information with respect to the sale contemplated herein or any matters set forth in this Agreement will be made only in the form approved by Purchaser and Seller.
9.2 Assignment. Neither Seller nor Purchaser may assign its rights or obligations under this Agreement without first obtaining the other partys written approval.
9.3 Notices. Any notice, request or other communication (a notice) required or permitted to be given hereunder shall be in writing and shall be delivered by hand or overnight courier (such as United Parcel Service or Federal Express), sent by facsimile (provided a copy of such notice is deposited with an overnight courier for next business day delivery) or mailed by United States registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid and addressed to each party at its address as set forth below. Any such notice shall be considered given on the date of such hand or courier delivery, confirmed facsimile transmission (provided a copy of such notice is deposited with an overnight courier for next business day delivery), deposit with such overnight courier for next business day delivery, or deposit in the United States mail, but the time period (if any is provided herein) in which to respond to such notice shall commence on the
date of hand or overnight courier delivery or on the date received following deposit in the United States mail as provided above. Rejection or other refusal to accept or inability to deliver because of changed address of which no notice was given shall be deemed to be receipt of the notice. By giving at least five (5) days prior written notice thereof, any party may from time to time and at any time change its mailing address hereunder. Any notice of any party may be given by such partys counsel.
The parties respective addresses for notice purposes are as follows. Telephone numbers are given for convenience of reference only. Notice by telephone shall not be effective.
