2.5 COMMON AREAS -- RULES AND REGULATIONS. Lessor or such other person(s)

Common Areas and shall have the right, from time to time, to establish, modify,
amend and enforce reasonable rules and regulations with respect thereto. Lessee
agrees to abide by and conform to all such rules and regulations, and to cause
its employees, suppliers, shippers, customers, and invitees to so abide and
conform. Lessor shall not be responsible to Lessee for the non-compliance with
said rules and regulations by other lessees of the Industrial Center.
2.6 COMMON AREAS -- CHANGES. Lessor shall have the right, in Lessor's sole

and make such other changes in, to, or with respect to the Common Areas and

deem to be appropriate.
2.6.1 Lessor shall at all times provide the parking facilities required
by applicable law and in no event shall the number of parking spaces that Lessee
is entitled to under paragraph 2.2 be reduced.
3.1 TERM. The term of this Lease shall be for month-to-month commencing on
May 1, 1998 and ending with on prior 30 day written notice from Lessee or
Lessor, unless sooner terminated pursuant to any provision hereof.
3.2 DELAY IN POSSESSION. Notwithstanding said commencement date, if for any
reason Lessor cannot deliver possession of the Premises to Lessee on said date,
Lessor shall not be subject to any liability therefor, nor shall such failure
affect the validity of this Lease or the obligations of Lessee hereunder or
extend the term hereof, but in such case, Lessee shall not be obligated to pay
rent or perform any other obligation of Lessee under the terms of this Lease,
except as may be otherwise provided in this Lease, until possession of the
Premises is tendered to Lessee; provided, however, that if Lessor shall not have
delivered possession of the Premises within sixty (60) days from said
commencement date, Lessee may, at Lessee's option, by notice in writing to
Lessor within ten (10) days thereafter, cancel this Lease, in which event the
parties shall be discharged from all obligations hereunder; provided further,
however, that if such written notice of Lessee is not received by Lessor within
said ten (10) day period, Lessee's right to cancel this Lease hereunder shall
terminate and be of no further force or effect.
3.3 EARLY POSSESSION. If Lessee occupies the Premises prior to said
commencement date, such occupancy shall be subject to all provisions of this
Lease, such occupancy shall not advance the termination date, and Lessee shall
pay rent for such period at the initial monthly rates set forth below.
4.1 BASE RENT. Lessee shall pay to Lessor, as Base Rent for the Premises,
without any offset or deduction, except as may be otherwise expressly provided
in this Lease, on the 1st day of each month of the term hereof, monthly payments
in advance of $6,800.00 plus applicable rental tax. Lessee shall pay Lessor upon
execution hereof $6,929.20 as Base Rent for May 1998. Rent for any period during
the term hereof which is for less than one month shall be a pro rata portion of
the Base Rent. Rent shall be payable in lawful money of the United States to
Lessor at the address stated herein or to such other persons or at such other
places as Lessor may designate in writing.
5. SECURITY DEPOSIT. Lessee shall deposit with Lessor upon execution hereof
$-0- as security for Lessee's faithful performance of Lessee's obligations
hereunder. If Lessee fails to pay rent or other charges due hereunder, or
otherwise defaults with respect to any provision of this Lease, Lessor may use,
apply or retain all or any portion of said deposit for the payment of any rent
or other charge in default or for the payment of any other sum to which Lessor
may become obligated by reason of Lessee's default, or to compensate Lessor for
any loss or damage which Lessor may suffer thereby. If Lessor so uses or applies
all or any portion of said deposit, Lessee shall within ten (10) days after
written demand therefor deposit cash with Lessor in an amount sufficient to
restore said deposit to the full amount then required of Lessee. If the monthly
rent shall, from time to time, increase during the term of this Lease, Lessee
shall, at the time of such increase, deposit with Lessor additional money as a
security deposit so that the total amount of the security deposit held by Lessor
shall at all times bear the same proportion to the then current Base Rent as the
initial security deposit bears to the initial Base Rent set forth in paragraph
4. Lessor shall not be required to keep said security deposit separate from its
general accounts. If Lessee performs all of Lessee's obligations hereunder, said
deposit, or so much thereof as has not theretofore been applied by Lessor, shall
be returned, without payment of interest or other increment for its use, to
Lessee (or, at Lessor's option, to the last assignee, if any, of Lessee's
interest hereunder) at the expiration of the term hereof, and after Lessee has
vacated the Premises. No trust relationship is created herein between Lessor and
Lessee with respect to said Security Deposit.
6.1 USE. The Premises shall be used and occupied only for storage only or
any other use which is reasonably comparable and for no other purpose.
6.2 COMPLIANCE WITH LAW.
(a) Lessor warrants to Lessee that the Premises, in the state existing
on the date that the Lease term commences, but without regard to the use for
which Lessee will occupy the Premises, does not violate any covenants or
restrictions of record, or any applicable building code, regulation or ordinance
in effect on such Lease term commencement date. In the event it is determined
that this warranty has been violated, then it shall be the obligation of the
Lessor, after written notice from Lessee, to promptly, at Lessor's sole cost and
expense, rectify any such violation. In the event Lessee does not give to Lessor
written notice of the violation of this warranty within six months from the date
that the Lease term commences, the correction of same shall be the obligation of
the Lessee at Lessee's sole cost. The warranty contained in this paragraph
6.2(a) shall be of no force or effect if, prior to the date of this Lease,
Lessee was an owner or occupant of the Premises and, in such event, Lessor shall
correct any such violation at Lessee's sole cost.
(b) Except as provided in paragraph 6.2(a) Lessee shall, at Lessee's
expense, promptly comply with all applicable statutes, ordinances, rules,
regulations, orders, covenants and restrictions of record, and requirements of
any fire insurance underwriters or rating bureaus, now in effect or which may
hereafter come into effect, whether or not they reflect a change in policy from
that now existing, during the term or any part of the term hereof, relating in
any manner to the Premises and the occupation and use by Lessee of the Premises
and of the Common Areas. Lessee shall not use nor permit the use of the Premises
or the Common Areas in any manner that will tend to create waste or a nuisance
or shall tend to disturb other occupants of the Industrial Center.
6.3 CONDITION OF PREMISES.
(a) Lessor shall deliver the Premises to Lessee clean and free of
debris on the Lease commencement date (unless Lessee is already in possession)
and Lessor warrants to Lessee that the plumbing, lighting, air conditioning,
heating, and loading doors in the Premises shall be in good operating condition
on the Lease commencement date. In the event that it is determined that this
warranty has been violated, then it shall be the obligation of Lessor, after
receipt of written notice from Lessee setting forth with specificity the nature
of the violation, to promptly, at Lessor's sole cost, rectify such violation.
Lessee's failure to give such written notice to Lessor within thirty (30) days
after the Lease commencement date shall cause the conclusive presumption that
Lessor has complied with all of Lessor's obligations hereunder. The warranty
contained in this paragraph 6.3(a) shall be of no force or effect if prior to
the date of this Lease, Lessee was an owner or occupant of the Premises.
(b) Except as otherwise provided in this Lease, Lessee hereby accepts
the Premises in their condition existing as of the Lease commencement date or
the date that Lessee takes possession of the Premises, whichever is earlier,
subject to all applicable zoning, municipal, county and state laws, ordinances
and regulations governing and regulating the use of the Premises, and any
covenants or restrictions of record, and accepts this Lease subject thereto and
to all matters disclosed thereby and by any exhibits attached hereto. Lessee
acknowledges that neither Lessor nor Lessor's agent has made any representation
or warranty as to the present or future suitability of the Premises for the
conduct of Lessee's business.
7. MAINTENANCE, REPAIRS, ALTERATIONS AND COMMON AREA SERVICES.
7.1 LESSOR'S OBLIGATIONS. Subject to the provisions of paragraphs 4.2
(Operating Expenses), 6 (Use), 7.2 (Lessee's Obligations) and 9 (Damage or
Destruction) and except for damage caused by any negligent or intentional act or
omission of Lessee, Lessee's employees, suppliers, shippers, customers, or
invitees, in which event Lessee shall repair the damage. Lessor, at Lessor's
expense, subject to reimbursement pursuant to paragraph 4.2, shall keep in good
condition and repair the foundations, exterior walls, structural condition of
interior bearing walls, and roof of the Premises, as well as the parking lots,
walkways, driveways, landscaping, fences, signs and utility installations of the
Common Areas and all parts thereof, as well as providing the services for which
there is an Operating Expense pursuant to paragraph 4.2. Lessor shall not,
however, be obligated to paint the exterior or interior surface of exterior
walls, nor shall Lessor be required to maintain, repair or replace windows,
doors or plate glass of the Premises. Lessor shall have no obligation to make
repairs under this paragraph 7.1 until a reasonable time after receipt of
written notice from Lessee of the need for such repairs. Lessee expressly waives
the benefits of any statute now or hereafter in effect which would otherwise
afford Lessee the right to make repairs at Lessor's expense or to terminate this
Lease because of Lessor's failure to keep the Premises in good order, condition
and repair. Lessor shall not be liable for damages or loss of any kind or nature
by reason of Lessor's failure to furnish any Common Area Services when such
failure is caused by accident, breakage, repairs, strikes, lockout, or other
labor disturbances or disputes of any character, or by any other cause beyond
the reasonable control of Lessor.
7.2 LESSEE'S OBLIGATIONS.
(a) Subject to the provisions of paragraphs 6 (Use), 7.1 (Lessor's
Obligations), and 9 (Damage or Destruction), Lessee, at Lessee's expense shall
keep in good order, condition and repair the Premises and every part thereof
(whether or not the damaged portion of the Premises or the means of repairing
the same are reasonably or readily accessible to Lessee) including, without
limiting the generality of the foregoing, all plumbing, heating, ventilating and
air conditioning systems (Lessee shall procure and maintain, at Lessee's
expense, a ventilating and air conditioning system maintenance contract),
electrical and lighting facilities and equipment within the Premises, fixtures,
interior walls and interior surfaces of exterior walls, ceilings, windows,
doors, plate glass, and skylights located within the Premises. Lessor reserves
the right to procure and maintain the ventilating and air conditioning system
maintenance contract and if Lessor so elects, Lessee shall reimburse Lessor,
upon demand, for the cost thereof.
(b) If Lessee fails to perform Lessee's obligations under this
paragraph 7.2 or under any other paragraph of this Lease, Lessor may enter upon
the Premises after ten (10) days' prior written notice to Lessee (except in the
case of emergency, in which no notice shall be required), perform such
obligations on Lessee's behalf and put the Premises in good order, condition and
repair, and the cost thereof together with interest thereon at the maximum rate
then allowable by law shall be due and payable as additional rent to Lessor
together with Lessee's next Base Rent installment.
(c) On the last day of the term hereof, or on any sooner termination,
Lessee shall surrender the Premises to Lessor in the same condition as received,
ordinary wear and tear excepted, clean and free of debris. Any damage or
deterioration of the Premises shall not be deemed ordinary wear and tear if the
same could have been prevented by good maintenance practices. Lessee shall
repair any damage to the Premises occasioned by the installation or removal of
Lessee's trade fixtures, alterations, furnishings and equipment. Notwithstanding
anything to the contrary otherwise stated in this Lease, Lessee shall leave the
air lines, power panels, electrical distribution systems, lighting fixtures,
space heaters, air conditioning, plumbing and fencing of the Premises in good
7.3 ALTERATIONS AND ADDITIONS.
(a) Lessee shall not, without Lessor's prior written consent make any
alterations, improvements, additions, or Utility Installations in, on or about
the Premises, or the Industrial Center, except for nonstructural alterations to
the Premises not exceeding $2,500 in cumulative costs, during the term of this
Lease. In any event, whether or not in excess of $2,500 in cumulative cost,
Lessee shall make no change or alteration to the exterior of the Premises nor
the exterior of the Building nor the Industrial Center without Lessor's prior
written consent. As used in this paragraph 7.3 the term "Utility Installation"
shall mean carpeting, window coverings, air lines, power panels, electrical
distribution systems, lighting fixtures, space heaters, air conditioning,
plumbing, and fencing. Lessor may require that Lessee remove any or all of said
alterations, improvements, additions or Utility Installations at the
expiration of the term, and restore the Premises and the Industrial Center to
their prior condition. Lessor may require Lessee to provide Lessor, at Lessee's
sole cost and expense, a lien and completion bond in an amount equal to one and
one-half times the estimated cost of such improvements, to insure Lessor against
any liability for mechanic's and materialmen's liens and to insure completion of
the work. Should Lessee make any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations without the prior approval of Lessor, Lessor may, at any time
during the term of this Lease, require that Lessee remove any or all of the
(b) Any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility Installations
in or about the Premises or the Industrial Center that Lessee shall desire to
make and which requires the consent of the Lessor shall be presented to Lessor
in written form, with proposed detailed plans. If Lessor shall give its consent,
the consent shall be deemed conditioned upon Lessee acquiring a permit to do so
from appropriate governmental agencies, the furnishing of a copy thereof to
Lessor prior to the commencement of the work and the compliance by Lessee of all
conditions of said permit in a prompt and expeditious manner.
(c) Lessee shall pay, when due, all claims for labor or materials
furnished or alleged to have been furnished to or for Lessee at or for use in
the Premises, which claims are or may be secured by any mechanic's or
materialmen's lien against the Premises, or the Industrial Center, or any
interest therein. Lessee shall give Lessor not less than ten (10) days' notice
prior to the commencement of any work in the Premises, and Lessor shall have the
right to post notices of non-responsibility in or on the Premises or the
Building as provided by law. If Lessee shall, in good faith, contest the
validity of any such lien, claim or demand, then Lessee shall, at its sole
expense defend itself and Lessor against the same and shall pay and satisfy any
such adverse judgment that may be rendered thereon before the enforcement
thereof against the Lessor or the Premises or the Industrial Center, upon the
condition that if Lessor shall require, Lessee shall furnish to Lessor a surety
bond satisfactory to Lessor in an amount equal to such contested lien claim or
demand indemnifying Lessor against liability for the same and holding the
Premises and the Industrial Center free from the effect of such lien or claim.
In addition, Lessor may require Lessee to pay Lessor's attorney's fees and costs
and participating in such action if Lessor shall decide it is to Lessor's best
interest to do so.
(d) All alterations, improvements additions and Utility Installations
(whether or not such Utility Installations constitute trade fixtures of Lessee),
which may be made on the Premises, shall be the property of Lessor and shall
remain upon and be surrendered with the Premises at the expiration of the Lease
term, unless Lessor requires their removal pursuant to paragraph 7.3(a).
Notwithstanding the provisions of this paragraph 7.3(d), Lessee's machinery and
equipment, other than that which is affixed to the Premises so that it cannot be
removed without material damage to the Premises, and other than Utility
Installations, shall remain the property of Lessee and may be removed by Lessee
subject to the provisions of paragraph 7.2.
7.4 UTILITY ADDITIONS. Lessor reserves the right to install new or
additional utility facilities throughout the Building and the Common Areas for
the benefit of Lessor or Lessee, or any other lessee of the Industrial Center,
including, but not by way of limitation, such utilities as plumbing, electrical
systems, security systems, communication systems, and fire protection and
detection systems, so long as such installations do not unreasonably interfere
with Lessee's use of the Premises.
8. INSURANCE; INDEMNITY.
8.1 LIABILITY INSURANCE-LESSEE. Lessee shall, at Lessee's expense, obtain
and keep in force during the term of this Lease a policy of combined Single
Limit Bodily Injury and Property Damage Insurance insuring Lessee and Lessor
against any liability arising out of the use, occupancy or maintenance of the
Premises and the Industrial Center. Such Insurance shall be in an amount not
less than $500,000.00 per occurrence. The policy shall insure performance by
Lessee of the indemnity provisions of this paragraph 8. The limits of said
insurance shall not, however, limit the liability of Lessee hereunder.
8.2 LIABILITY INSURANCE-LESSOR. Lessor shall obtain and keep in force
during the term of this Lease a policy of Combined Single Limit Bodily Injury
and Property Damage Insurance, Insuring Lessor, but not Lessee, against any
liability arising out of the ownership, use, occupancy or maintenance of the
Industrial Center in an amount not less than $500,000.00 per occurrence.
8.3 PROPERTY INSURANCE. Lessor shall obtain and keep in force during the
term of this Lease a policy or policies of insurance covering loss or damage to
the Industrial Center Improvements, but not Lessee's personal property,
fixtures, equipment or tenant improvements, in an amount not to exceed the full
replacement value thereof, as the same may exist from time to time, providing
protection against all perils included within the classification of fire,
extended coverage, vandalism, malicious mischief, flood (in the event same is
required by a lender having a lien on the Premises), special extended perils
("all risk," as such term is used in the insurance industry), plate glass
insurance and such other insurance as Lessor deems advisable. In addition,
Lessor shall obtain and keep in force, during the term of this Lease, a policy
of rental value insurance covering a period of one year, with loss payable to
Lessor, which insurance shall also cover all Operating Expenses for said period.
8.4 PAYMENT OF PREMIUM INCREASE.
(a) After the term of this Lease has commenced, Lessee shall not be
responsible for paying Lessee's Share of any increase in the property insurance
premium for the Industrial Center specified by Lessor's insurance carrier as
being caused by the use, acts or omissions of any other lessee of the Industrial
Center, or by the nature of such other lessee's occupancy which create an
extraordinary or unusual risk.
(b) Lessee, however, shall pay the entirety of any increase in the
property insurance premium for the Industrial Center over what it was
immediately prior to the commencement of the term of this Lease if the increase
is specified by Lessor's insurance carrier as being caused by the nature of
Lessee's occupancy or any act or omission of Lessee.
(c) Lessee shall pay to Lessor, during the term hereof, in addition to
the rent, Lessee's Share (as defined in paragraph 4.2(a)) of the amount of any
increase in premiums for the insurance required under paragraphs 8.2 and 8.3
over and above such premiums paid during the Base Period, as hereinafter
defined, whether such premium increase shall be the result of the nature of
Lessee's occupancy, any act or omission of Lessee, requirements of the holder of
a mortgage or deed of trust covering the Premises, increased valuation of the
Premises, or general rate increases. In the event that the Premises have been
occupied previously, the words "Base Period" shall mean the last twelve months
of the prior occupancy. In the event that the Premises have never been occupied
previously, the premiums during the "Base Period" shall be deemed to be the
lowest premiums reasonably obtainable for said insurance assuming the most
nominal use of the Premises. Provided, however, in lieu of the Base Period, the
parties may insert a dollar amount at the end of this sentence which figure
shall be considered as the insurance premium for the Base Period: $__________.
In no event, however, shall Lessee be responsible for any portion of the premium
cost attributable to liability insurance coverage in excess of $500,000.00
procured under paragraph 8.2.
(d) Lessee shall pay any such premium increases to Lessor within 30
days after receipt by Lessee of a copy of the premium statement or other
satisfactory evidence of the amount due. If the insurance policies maintained
hereunder cover other improvements in addition to the Premises. Lessor shall
also deliver to Lessee a statement of the amount of such increase attributable
to the Premises and showing in reasonable detail, the manner in which such
amount was computed. If the term of this Lease shall not expire concurrently
with the expiration of the period covered by such insurance. Lessee's liability
for premium increases shall be prorated on an annual basis.
8.5 INSURANCE POLICIES. Insurance required hereunder shall be in companies
holding a "General Policyholders Rating" of at least B plus, or such other
rating as may be required by a lender having a lien on the Premises, as set
forth in the most current issue of "Best's Insurance Guide." Lessee shall not do
or permit to be done anything which shall invalidate the insurance policies
carried by Lessor. Lessee shall deliver to Lessor copies of liability insurance
policies required under paragraph 8.1 or certificates evidencing the existence
and amounts of such insurance within seven (7) days after the commencement date
of this Lease. No such policy shall be cancelable or subject to reduction of
coverage or other modification except after thirty (30) days prior written
notice to Lessor. Lessee shall, at least thirty (30) days prior to the
expiration of such policies, furnish Lessor with renewals or "binders" thereof.
8.6 WAIVER OF SUBROGATION. Lessee and Lessor each hereby release and
relieve the other, and waive their entire right of recovery against the other
for loss or damage arising out of or incident to the perils insured against
which perils occur in, on or about the Premises, whether due to the negligence
of Lessor or Lessee or their agents, employees, contractors and/or invitees.
Lessee and Lessor shall, upon obtaining the policies of insurance required
hereunder, give notice to the insurance carrier or carriers that the foregoing
mutual waiver of subrogation is contained in this Lease.
8.7 INDEMNITY. Lessee shall indemnify and hold harmless Lessor from and
against any and all claims arising from Lessee's use of the Industrial Center,
or from the conduct of Lessee's business or from any activity, work or things
done, permitted or suffered by Lessee in or about the Premises or elsewhere and
shall further indemnify and hold harmless Lessor from and against any and all
claims arising from any breach or default in the performance of any obligation
on Lessee's part to be performed under the terms of this Lease, or arising from
any act or omission of Lessee, or any of Lessee's agents, contractors, or
employees, and from and against all costs, attorney's fees, expenses and
liabilities incurred in the defense of any such claim or any action or
proceeding brought thereon, and in case any action or proceeding be brought
against Lessor by reason of any such claim. Lessee upon notice from Lessor shall
defend the same at Lessee's expense by counsel reasonably satisfactory to Lessor
and Lessor shall cooperate with Lessee in such defense. Lessee, as a material
part of the consideration to Lessor, hereby assumes all risk of damage to
property of Lessee or injury to persons, in, upon or about the Industrial Center
arising from any cause and Lessee hereby waives all claims in respect thereof
8.8 EXEMPTION OF LESSOR FROM LIABILITY. Lessee hereby agrees that Lessor
shall not be liable for injury to Lessee's business or any loss of income
therefrom or from damage to the goods, wares, merchandise or other property of
Lessee, Lessee's employees, invitees, customers, or any other person in or about
the Premises or the Industrial Center, nor shall Lessor be liable for injury to
the person of Lessee, Lessee's employees, agents or contractors, whether such
damage or injury is caused by or results from fire, steam, electricity, gas,
water or rain, or from the breakage, leakage, obstruction or other results from
conditions arising upon the Premises or upon other portions of the Industrial
Center, or from other sources or places and regardless of whether the cause of
such damage or injury or the means of repairing the same is inaccessible to
Lessee. Lessor shall not be liable for any damages arising from any act or
neglect of any other lessee, occupant or user of the Industrial Center, nor from
the failure of Lessor to enforce the provisions of any other lease of the

Lessor's option either (i) repair such damage as soon as reasonably possible at
Lessor's expense, in which event this Lease shall continue in full force and
effect, or (ii) give written notice to Lessee within thirty (30) days after the
date of the occurrence of such damage of Lessor's intention to cancel and
terminate this Lease as of the date of the occurrence of such damage. In the
event Lessor elects to give such notice of Lessor's intention to cancel and
terminate this Lease, Lessee shall have the right within ten (10) days after the
receipt of such notice to give written notice to Lessor of Lessee's intention to
repair such damage at Lessee's expense, without reimbursement from Lessor, in
which event this Lease shall continue in full force and effect, and Lessee shall
proceed to make such repairs as soon as reasonably possible. If Lessee does not
give such notice within such 10-day period this Lease shall be cancelled and
terminated as of the date of the occurrence of such damage.
9.3 PREMISES TOTAL DESTRUCTION; PREMISES BUILDING TOTAL DESTRUCTION;
INDUSTRIAL CENTER BUILDINGS TOTAL DESTRUCTION.
(a) Subject to the provisions of paragraphs 9.4 and 9.5, if at any time
during the term of this Lease there is damage, whether or not it is an Insured
Loss, and which falls into the classifications of either (i) Premises Total
Destruction, or (ii) Premises Building Total Destruction, or (iii) Industrial
Center Buildings Total Destruction, then Lessor may at Lessor's option either
(i) repair such damage or destruction, but not Lessee's fixtures, equipment or
tenant improvements, as soon as reasonably possible at Lessor's expense, and
this Lease shall continue in full force and effect, or (ii) give written notice
to Lessee within thirty (30) days after the date of occurrence of such damage of
Lessor's intention to cancel and terminate this Lease, in which case this Lease
shall be cancelled and terminated as of the date of the occurrence of such
9.4 DAMAGE NEAR END OF TERM.
(a) Subject to paragraph 9.4(b), if at any time during the last six
months of the term of this Lease there is substantial damage, whether or not an
Insured Loss, which falls within the classification of Premises Partial Damage,
Lessor may at Lessor's option cancel and terminate this Lease as of the date of
occurrence of such damage by giving written notice to Lessee of Lessor's
election to do so within 30 days after the date of occurrence of such damage.
(b) Notwithstanding paragraph 9.4(a), in the event that Lessee has an
option to extend or renew this Lease, and the time within which said option may
be exercised has not yet expired, Lessee shall exercise such option, if it is to
be exercised at all, no later than twenty (20) days after the occurrence of an
Insured Loss falling within the classification of Premises Partial Damage,
during the last six months of the term of this Lease. If Lessee duly exercises
such option during said twenty (20) day period, Lessor shall, at Lessor's
expense, repair such damage, but not Lessee's fixtures, equipment or tenant
improvements, as soon as reasonably possible and this Lease shall continue in
full force and effect. If Lessee fails to exercise such option during said
twenty (20) day period, then Lessor may at Lessor's option terminate and cancel
this Lease as of the expiration of said twenty (20) day period by giving written
notice to Lessee of Lessor's election to do so within ten (10) days after the
expiration of said twenty (20) day period, notwithstanding any term or
provision in the grant of option to the contrary.
9.5 ABATEMENT OF RENT; LESSEE'S REMEDIES.
(a) In the event Lessor repairs or restores the Premises pursuant to
the provisions of this paragraph 9, the rent payable hereunder for the period
during which such damage, repair or restoration continues shall be abated in
proportion to the degree to which Lessee's use of the Premises is impaired.
Except for abatement of rent, if any, Lessee shall have no claim against Lessor
for any damage suffered by reason of any such damage, destruction, repair or
(b) If Lessor shall be obligated to repair or restore the Premises
under the provisions of this paragraph 9 and shall not commence such repair or
restoration within ninety (90) days after such obligation shall accrue, Lessee
may at Lessee's option cancel and terminate this Lease by giving Lessor written
notice of Lessee's election to do so at any time prior to the commencement of
such repair or restoration. In such event this Lease shall terminate as of the
date of such notice.
9.6 TERMINATION--ADVANCE PAYMENTS. Upon termination of this Lease pursuant
to this paragraph 9, an equitable adjustment shall be made concerning advance
rent and any advance payments made by Lessee to Lessor. Lessor shall, in
addition, return to Lessee so much of Lessee's security deposit as has not
theretofore been applied by Lessor.
9.7 WAIVER. Lessor and Lessee waive the provisions of any statute which
relate to termination of leases when leased property is destroyed and agree that
such event shall be governed by the terms of this Lease.
10. REAL PROPERTY TAXES.
10.1 PAYMENT OF TAX INCREASE. Lessor shall pay the real property tax, as
defined in paragraph 10.3, applicable to the Industrial Center, provided,
however, that Lessee shall pay, in addition to rent, Lessee's Share (as defined
in paragraph 4.2(a)) of the amount, if any, by which real property taxes
applicable to the Premises increase over the fiscal real estate tax year
19___-19___. Such payment shall be made by Lessee within thirty (30) days after
receipt of Lessor's written statement setting forth the amount of such increase
and the computation thereof. If the term of this Lease shall not expire
concurrently with the expiration of the tax fiscal year, Lessee's liability for
increased taxes for the last partial lease year shall be prorated on an annual
10.2 ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENTS. Lessee shall not be responsible for paying
Lessee's Share of any increase in real property tax specified in the tax
assessor's records and work sheets as being caused by additional improvements
placed upon the Industrial Center by other lessees or by Lessor for the
exclusive enjoyment of such other lessees. Lessee shall, however, pay to Lessor
at the time that Operating Expenses are payable under paragraph 4.2(c) the
entirety of any increase in real property tax if assessed solely by reason of
additional improvements placed upon the Premises by Lessee or at Lessee's
10.3 DEFINITION OF "REAL PROPERTY TAX." As used herein, the term "real
property tax" shall include any form of real estate tax or assessment, general,
special, ordinary or extraordinary, and any license fee, commercial rental tax,
improvement bond or bonds, levy or tax (other than inheritance, personal income
or estate taxes) imposed on the Industrial Center or any portion thereof by any
authority having the direct or indirect power to tax, including any city,
county, state or federal government, or any school, agricultural, sanitary,
fire, street, drainage or other improvement district thereof, as against any
legal or equitable interest of Lessor in the Industrial Center or in any portion
thereof, as against Lessor's right to rent or other income therefrom, and as
against Lessor's business of leasing the Industrial Center. The term "real
property tax" shall also include any tax, fee, levy, assessment or charge (i) in
substitution of, partially or totally, any tax, fee, levy, assessment or charge
hereinabove included within the definition of "real property tax," or (ii) the
nature of which was hereinbefore included within the definition of "real
property tax," or (iii) which is imposed for a service or right not charged
prior to June 1, 1978, or, if previously charged, has been increased since June
1, 1978, or (iv) which is imposed as a result of a transfer, either partial or
total, of Lessor's interest in the Industrial Center or which is added to a tax
or charge hereinbefore included within the definition of real property tax by
reason of such transfer, or (v) which is imposed by reason of this transaction,
any modifications or changes hereto, or any transfers hereof.
10.4 JOINT ASSESSMENT. If the Industrial Center is not separately
assessed, Lessee's Share of the real property tax liability shall be an
equitable proportion of the real property taxes for all of the land and
improvements included within the tax parcel assessed, such proposition to be
determined by Lessor from the respective valuations assigned in the assessor's
work sheets or such other information as may be reasonably available. Lessor's
reasonable determination thereof, in good faith, shall be conclusive.
10.5 PERSONAL PROPERTY TAXES.
(a) Lessee shall pay prior to delinquency all taxes assessed against
and levied upon trade fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all other personal
property of Lessee contained in the Premises or elsewhere. When possible, Lessee
shall cause said trade fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all other personal
property to be assessed and billed separately from the real property of Lessor.
(b) If any of Lessee's said personal property shall be assessed with
Lessor's real property, Lessee shall pay to Lessor the taxes attributable to
Lessee within ten (10) days after receipt of a written statement setting forth
the taxes applicable to Lessee's property.
11. UTILITIES. Lessee shall pay for all water, gas, heat, light, power,
telephone and other utilities and services supplied to the Premises, together
with any taxes thereon. If any such services are not separately metered to the
Premises, Lessee shall pay at Lessor's option, either Lessee's Share or a
reasonable proportion to be determined by Lessor of all charges jointly metered
with other premises in the Building.
12. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING.
12.1 LESSOR'S CONSENT REQUIRED. Lessee shall not voluntarily or by
operation of law assign, transfer, mortgage, sublet, or otherwise transfer or
encumber all or any part of Lessee's interest in the Lease or in the Premises,
without Lessor's prior written consent, which Lessor shall not unreasonably
withhold. Lessor shall respond to Lessee's request for consent hereunder in a
timely manner and any attempted assignment, transfer, mortgage, encumbrance or
subletting without such consent shall be void, and shall constitute a breach of
this Lease without the need for notice to Lessee under paragraph 13.1.
12.2 LESSEE AFFILIATE. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 12.1
hereof, Lessee may assign or sublet the Premises, or any portion thereof,
without Lessor's consent, to any corporation which controls, is controlled by or
is under common control with Lessee, or to any corporation resulting from the
merger or consolidation with Lessee, or to any person or entity which acquires
all the assets of Lessee as a going concern of the business that is being
conducted on the Premises, all of which are referred to as "Lessee Affiliate,"
provided that before such assignment shall be effective said assignee shall
assume, in full, the obligations of Lessee under this Lease. Any such assignment
shall not, in any way, affect or limit the liability of Lessee under the terms
of this Lease even if after such assignment or subletting the terms of this
Lease are materially changed or altered without the consent of Lessee, the
consent of whom shall not be necessary.
12.3 TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ASSIGNMENT. Regardless of Lessor's consent, no
assignment shall release Lessee of Lessee's obligations hereunder or alter the
primary liability of Lessee to pay the Base Rent and Lessee's Share of Operating
Expenses, and to perform all other obligations to be performed by Lessee
hereunder. Lessor may accept rent from any person other than Lessee pending
approval or disapproval of such assignment. Neither a delay in the approval or
disapproval of such assignment nor the acceptance of rent shall constitute a
waiver or estoppel or Lessor's right to exercise its remedies for the breach of
any of the terms or conditions of this paragraph 12 or this Lease. Consent to
one assignment shall not be deemed consent to any subsequent assignment. In the
event of default by any assignee of Lessee or any successor of Lessee, in the
performance of any of the terms hereof, Lessor may proceed directly against
Lessee without the necessity of exhausting remedies against said assignee.
Lessor may consent to subsequent assignments of this Lease or amendments or
modifications to this Lease with assignees of Lessee, without notifying Lessee,
or any successor of Lessee, and without obtaining its or their consent thereto
and such action shall not relieve Lessee of liability under this Lease.
12.4 TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO SUBLETTING. Regardless of Lessor's
consent, the following terms and conditions shall apply to any subletting by
Lessee of all or any part of the Premises and shall be included in subleases.
(a) Lessee hereby assigns and transfers to Lessor all of Lessee's
interest in all rentals and income arising from any sublease heretofore or
hereafter made by Lessee, and Lessor may collect such rent and income and apply
same toward Lessee's obligations under this Lease; provided, however, that until
a default shall occur in the performance of Lessee's obligations under this
Lease, Lessee may receive, collect and enjoy the rents accruing under such
sublease. Lessor shall not, by reason of this or any other assignment of such
sublease to Lessor nor by reason of the collection of the rents from a
sublessee, be deemed liable to the sublessee for any failure of Lessee to
perform and comply with any of Lessee's obligations to such sublessee under such
sublease. Lessee hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs any such sublessee,
upon receipt of a written notice from Lessor stating that a default exists in
the performance of Lessee's obligations under this Lease, to pay to Lessor the
rents due and to become due under the sublease. Lessee agrees that such
sublessee shall have the right to rely upon any such statement and request from
Lessor, and that such sublessee shall pay such rents to Lessor without any
obligation or right to inquire as to whether such default exists and
notwithstanding any notice from or claim from Lessee to the contrary. Lessee
shall have no right or claim against such sublessee or Lessor for any such rents
so paid by said sublessee to Lessor.
(b) No sublease entered into by Lessee shall be effective unless and
until it has been approved in writing by Lessor. In entering into any sublease,
Lessee shall use only such form of sublease as is satisfactory to Lessor, and
once approved by Lessor, such sublease shall not be changed or modified without
Lessor's prior written consent. Any sublessee shall, by reason of entering into
a sublease under this Lease, be deemed, for the benefit of Lessor, to have
assumed and agreed to conform and comply with each and every obligation herein
to be performed by Lessee other than such obligations as are contrary to or
inconsistent with provisions contained in a sublease to which Lessor has
expressly consented in writing.
(c) If Lessee's obligations under this Lease have been guaranteed by
third parties, then a sublease, and Lessor's consent thereto, shall not be
effective unless said guarantors give their written consent to such sublease and
the terms thereof.
(d) The consent by Lessor to any subletting shall not release Lessee
from its obligations or alter the primary liability of Lessee to pay the rent
and perform and comply with all of the obligations of Lessee to be performed
under this Lease.
(e) The consent by Lessor to any subletting shall not constitute a
consent to any subsequent subletting by Lessee or to any assignment or
subletting by the sublessee. However, Lessor may consent to subsequent
sublettings and assignments of the sublease or any amendments or modifications
thereto without notifying Lessee or anyone else liable on the Lease or sublease
and without obtaining their consent and such action shall not relieve such
persons from liability.
(f) In the event of any default under this Lease, Lessor may proceed
directly against Lessee, any guarantors or any one else responsible for the
performance of this Lease, including the sublessee, without first exhausting
Lessor's remedies against any other person or entity responsible therefor to
Lessor, or any security held by Lessor or Lessee.
(g) In the event Lessee shall default in the performance of its
obligations under this Lease, Lessor, at its option and without any obligation
to do so, may require any sublessee to attorn to Lessor, in which event Lessor
shall undertake the obligations of Lessee under such sublease from the time of
the exercise of said option to the termination of such sublease; provided,
however, Lessor shall not be liable for any prepaid rents or security deposit
paid by such sublessee to Lessee or for any other prior defaults of Lessee under
(h) Each and every consent required of Lessee under a sublease shall
also require the consent of Lessor.
(i) No sublessee shall further assign or sublet all or any part of the
Premises without Lessor's prior written consent.
(j) Lessor's written consent to any subletting of the Premises by
Lessee shall not constitute an acknowledgment that no default then exists under
this Lease of the obligations to be performed by Lessee nor shall such consent
be deemed a waiver of any then existing default, except as may be otherwise
stated by Lessor at the time.
(k) With respect to any subletting to which Lessor has consented,
Lessor agrees to deliver a copy of any notice of default by Lessee to the
sublessee. Such sublessee shall have the right to cure a default of Lessee
within ten (10) days after service of said notice of default upon such
sublessee, and the sublessee shall have a right of reimbursement and offset from
and against Lessee for any such defaults cured by the sublessee.
12.5 ATTORNEY'S FEES. In the event Lessee shall assign or sublet the
Premises or request the consent of Lessor to any assignment or subletting or if
Lessee shall request the consent of Lessor for any act Lessee proposes to do
then Lessee shall pay Lessor's reasonable attorney's fees incurred in connection
therewith, such attorney's fees not to exceed $350.00 for each such request.
13. DEFAULT; REMEDIES.
13.1 DEFAULT. The occurrence of any one or more of the following events
shall constitute a material default of this Lease by Lessee:
(a) The vacating or abandonment of the Premises by Lessee.
(b) The failure by Lessee to make any payment of rent or any other
payment required to be made by Lessee hereunder, as and when due, where such
failure shall continue for a period of three (3) days after written notice
thereof from Lessor to Lessee. In the event that Lessor serves Lessee with a
Notice to Pay Rent or Quit pursuant to applicable Unlawful Detainer statutes
such Notice to Pay Rent or Quit shall also constitute the notice required by
(c) Except as otherwise provided in this Lease, the failure by Lessee
to observe or perform any of the covenants, conditions or provisions of this
Lease to be observed or performed by Lessee, other than described in paragraph
(b) above, where such failure shall continue for a period of thirty (30) days
after written notice thereof from Lessor to Lessee; provided, however, that if
the nature of Lessee's noncompliance is such that more than thirty (30) days are
reasonably required for its cure, then Lessee shall not be deemed to be in
default if Lessee commenced such cure within said thirty (30) day period and
thereafter diligently prosecutes such cure to completion. To the extent
permitted by law, such thirty (30) day notice shall constitute the sole and
exclusive notice required to be given to Lessee under applicable Unlawful
(d) (i) The making by Lessee of any general arrangement or general
assignment for the benefit of creditors; (ii) Lessee becomes a "debtor" as
defined in 11 U.S.C. section 101 or any successor statute thereto (unless, in
the case of a petition filed against Lessee, the same is dismissed within sixty
(60) days); (iii) the appointment of a trustee or receiver to take possession of
substantially all of Lessee's assets located at the Premises or of Lessee's
interest in this Lease, where possession is not restored to Lessee within thirty
(30) days; or (iv) the attachment, execution or other judicial seizure of
substantially all of Lessee's assets located at the Premises or of Lessee's
interest in this Lease, where such seizure is not discharged within thirty (30)
days. In the event that any provision of this paragraph 13.1(d) is contrary to
any applicable law, such provision shall be of no force or effect.
(e) The discovery by Lessor that any financial statement given to
Lessor by Lessee, any assignee of Lessee, any subtenant of Lessee, any successor
in interest of Lessee or any guarantor of Lessee's obligation hereunder, was
13.2 REMEDIES. In the event of any such material default by Lessee, Lessor
may at any time thereafter, with or without notice or demand and without
limiting Lessor in the exercise of any right or remedy which Lessor may have by
reason of such default:
(a) Terminate Lessee's right to possession of the Premises by any lawful
means, in which case this Lease and the term hereof shall terminate and Lessee
shall immediately surrender possession of the Premises to Lessor. In such event
Lessor shall be entitled to recover from Lessee all damages incurred by Lessor
by reason of Lessee's default including, but not limited to, the cost of
recovering possession of the Premises, expenses of reletting, including
necessary renovation and alteration of the Premises, reasonable attorney's fees,
and any real estate commission actually paid; the worth at the time of award by
the court having jurisdiction thereof of the amount by which the unpaid rent for
the balance of the term after the time of such award exceeds the amount of such
rental loss for the same period that Lessee proves could be reasonably avoided;
that portion of the leasing commission paid by Lessor pursuant to paragraph 15
applicable to the unexpired term of this Lease.
(b) Maintain Lessee's right to possession in which case this Lease
shall continue in effect whether or not Lessee shall have vacated or abandoned
the Premises. In such event Lessor shall be entitled to enforce all of Lessor's
rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover the rent as
it becomes due hereunder.
(c) Pursue and other remedy now or hereafter available to Lessor under
the laws or judicial decisions of the state wherein the Premises are located.
Unpaid installments of rent and other unpaid monetary obligations of Lessee
under the terms of this Lease shall bear interest from the date due at the
maximum rate then allowable by law.
13.3 DEFAULT BY LESSOR. Lessor shall not be in default unless Lessor fails
to perform obligations required by Lessor within a reasonable time, but in no
event late than thirty (30) days after written notice by Lessee to Lessor and to
the holder of any first mortgage or deed of trust covering the Premises whose
name and address shall have theretofore been furnished to Lessee in writing,
specifying wherein Lessor has failed to perform such obligation; provided,
however, that if the nature of Lessor's obligation is such that more than thirty
(30) days are required for performance then Lessor shall not be in default if
Lessor commences performance within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter
diligently prosecutes the same to completion.
13.4 LATE CHARGES. Lessee hereby acknowledges that the late payment by
Lessee to Lessor Base Rent, Lessee's Share of Operating Expenses or other sums
due hereunder will cause Lessor to incur costs not contemplated by this Lease,
the exact amount of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain. Such costs
include, but are not limited to, processing and accounting charges, and late
charges which may be imposed on Lessor by the terms of any mortgage or trust
deed covering the Industrial Center. Accordingly, if any installment of Base
Rent, Operating Expenses, or any other sum due from Lessee shall not be received
by Lessor or Lessor's designee within ten (10) days after such amount shall be
due, then, without any requirement for notice to Lessee, Lessee shall pay to
Lessor a late charge equal to 6% of such overdue amount. The parties hereby
agree that such late charge shall in no event constitute a waiver of Lessee's
default with respect to such overdue amount, nor prevent Lessor from exercising
any of the other rights and remedies granted hereunder. In the event that a late
charge is payable hereunder, whether or not collected, for three (3) consecutive
installments of any of the aforesaid monetary obligations of Lessee, then Base
Rent shall automatically become due and payable quarterly in advance, rather
than monthly, notwithstanding paragraph 4.1 or any other provision of this Lease
to the contrary.
14. CONDEMNATION. If the Premises or any portion thereof or the Industrial
Center are taken under the power of eminent domain, or sold under the threat of
the exercise of said power (all of which are herein called "condemnation"), this
Lease shall terminate as to the part so taken as of the date the condemning
authority takes title or possession, whichever first occurs. If more than ten
percent of the floor area of the Premises, or more than twenty-five percent of
that portion of the Common Areas designated as parking for the Industrial Center
is taken by condemnation, Lessee may, at Lessee's option, to be exercised in
writing only within ten (10) days after Lessor shall have given Lessee written
notice of such taking (or in the absence of such notice, within ten (10) days
after the condemning authority shall have taken possession) terminate this Lease
as of the date the condemning authority takes such possession. If Lessee does
not terminate this Lease in accordance with the foregoing, this Lease shall
remain in full force and effect as to the portion of the Premises remaining,
except that the rent shall be reduced in the proportion that the floor area of
the Premises taken bears to the total floor area of the Premises. No reduction
of rent shall occur if the only area taken is that which does not have the
Premises located thereon. Any award for the taking of all or any part of the
Premises under the power of eminent domain or any payment made under threat of
the exercise of such power shall be the property of Lessor, whether such award
shall be made as compensation for diminution in value of the leasehold or for
the taking of the fee, or as severance damages; provided, however, that Lessee
shall be entitled to any award for loss of or damage to Lessee's trade fixtures
and removable personal property. In the event that this Lease is not terminated
by reason of such condemnation, Lessor shall to the extent of severance damages
received by Lessor in connection with such condemnation, repair any damage to
the Premises caused by such condemnation except to the extent that Lessee has
been reimbursed therefor by the condemning authority. Lessee shall pay any
amount in excess of such severance damages required to complete such repair.
15. BROKER'S FEE.
(a) Upon execution of this Lease by both parties, Lessor shall pay to
________________________________________________ Licensed real estate broker(s),
a fee as set forth in a separate agreement between Lessor and said broker(s), or
in the event there is no separate agreement between Lessor and said broker(s),
the sum of $____ , for brokerage services rendered by said broker(s) to Lessor
in this transaction.
(b) Lessor further agrees that if Lessee exercises any Option, as defined
in paragraph 39.1 of this Lease, which is granted to Lessee under this Lease, or
any subsequently granted option which is substantially similar to an Option
granted to Lessee under this Lease, or if Lessee acquires any rights to the
Premises or other premises described in this Lease which are substantially
similar to what Lessee would have acquired had an Option herein granted to
Lessee been exercised, or if Lessee remains in possession of the Premises after
the expiration of the term of this Lease after having failed to exercise an
Option, or if said broker(s) are the procuring cause of any other lease or sale
entered into between the parties pertaining to the Premises and/or any adjacent
property in which Lessor has an interest, then as to any of said transactions,
Lessor shall pay said broker(s) a fee in accordance with the schedule of said
broker(s) in effect at the time of execution of this Lease.
(c) Lessor agrees to pay said fee not only on behalf of Lessor but also on
behalf of any person, corporation, association, or other entity having an
ownership interest in said real property or any part thereof, when such fee is
due hereunder. Any transferee of Lessor's interests in this Lease, whether such
transfer is by agreement or by operation of law, shall be deemed to have assumed
Lessor's obligation under this paragraph 15. Said broker shall be a third party
beneficiary of the provisions of this paragraph 15.
16. ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE.
(a) Each party (as "responding party") shall at any time upon not less than
ten (10) days' prior written notice from the other party ("requesting party")
execute, acknowledge and deliver to the requesting party a statement in writing
(i) certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or,
if modified, stating the nature of such modification and certifying that this
Lease, as so modified, is in full force and effect) and the date to which the
rent and other charges are paid in advance, if any, and (ii) acknowledging that
there are not, to the responding party's knowledge, any uncured defaults on the
part of the requesting party, or specifying such defaults if any are claimed.
Any such statement may be conclusively relied upon by any prospective purchaser
or encumbrancer of the Premises or of the business of the requesting party.
(b) At the requesting party's option, the failure to deliver such statement
within such time shall be a material default of this Lease by the party who is
to respond, without any further notice to such party, or it shall be conclusive
upon such party that (i) this Lease is in full force and effect, without
modification except as may be represented by the requesting party, (ii) there
are no uncured defaults in the requesting party's performance, and (iii) if
Lessor is the requesting party, not more than one month's rent has been paid in
(c) If Lessor desires to finance, reliance, or sell the Industrial Center,
or any part thereof, Lessee hereby agrees to deliver to any lender or purchaser
designated by Lessor such financial statements of Lessee as may be reasonably
required by such lender or purchaser. Such statements shall include the past
three (3) years' financial statements of Lessee. All such financial statements
shall be received by Lessor and such lender or purchaser in confidence and shall
be used only for the purposes herein set forth.
17. LESSOR'S LIABILITY. The term "Lessor" as used herein shall mean only the
owner or owners, at the time in question, of the fee title or a lessee's
interest in a ground lease of the Industrial Center, and except as expressly
provided in paragraph 15, in the event of any transfer of such title or interest
Lessor herein named (and in case of any subsequent transfers then the grantor)
shall be relieved from and after the date of such transfer of all liability as
respects Lessor's obligations thereafter to be performed, provided that any
funds in the hands of Lessor or the then grantor at the time of such transfer,
in which Lessee has an interest, shall be delivered to the grantee. The
obligations contained in this Lease to be performed by Lessor shall, subject as
aforesaid, be binding on Lessor's successors and assigns, only during their
respective periods of ownership.
18. SEVERABILITY. The invalidity of any provision of this Lease as determined
by a court of competent jurisdiction, shall in no way affect the validity of any
other provision hereof.
19. INTEREST ON PAST-DUE OBLIGATIONS. Except as expressly herein provided, any
amount due to Lessor not paid when due shall bear interest at the maximum rate
then allowable by law from the date due. Payment of such interest shall not
excuse or cure any default by Lessee under this Lease; provided, however, that
interest shall not be payable on late charges incurred by Lessee nor on any
amounts upon which late charges are paid by Lessee.
20. TIME OF ESSENCE. Time is of the essence with respect to the obligations to
be performed under this Lease.
21. ADDITIONAL RENT. All monetary obligations of Lessee to Lessor under the
terms of this Lease, including but not limited to Lessee's Share of Operating
Expenses and insurance and tax expenses payable shall be deemed to be rent.
22. INCORPORATION OF PRIOR AGREEMENTS; AMENDMENTS. This Lease contains all
agreements of the parties with respect to any matter mentioned herein. No prior
or contemporaneous agreement or understanding pertaining to any such matter
shall be effective. This Lease may be modified in writing only, signed by the
parties in interest at the time of the modification. Except as otherwise stated
in this Lease, Lessee hereby acknowledges that neither the real estate broker
