Within ten (10) days Landlord shall advise what space is available meeting Tenant’s request and the fair market rental value of such space. (Landlord may exclude space which is not suitable or economic to modify or reduce in size to the area specified by Tenant.) Tenant shall, within five (5) days, give written notice if Tenant elects to take the additional space. Landlord and Tenant shall enter into a written lease, substantially in the form of this Lease, for the additional space, including rent increases annually Landlord, at its election, may require that the term of the lease on the new space coincide with the term of this Lease or on the date of increase under the Lease, at Landlord election.


In the event Tenant does not occupy the Premises and fails to pay Rents as required in Article 4 of the Lease, all Tenant Improvements become due and payable upon invoicing by Landlord. Further, such invoicing by Landlord does not waive any other rights or remedies Landlord may have against Tenant for failure to occupy.

4. RENT.

(a) Base Rent. Base Rent shall be $_______ Per Rentable Sq. Ft. for the first ____ months and $_____ Per Rentable Sq. Ft. for the last 6 months of the first year; with an annual escalation of ___% annually for the remaining years _________ (based on _____ Rentable Sq. Ft.) calculated as follows:


The Base Rent shall be payable in advance each month on or before the 1st day of each month during the duration of the Lease, with the first such monthly rental payment and security deposit (see section 33) being due upon the execution of the Lease. Any partial months shall be prorated accordingly. Base Rent will be increased (approximately 4% annually) during the Lease Term, as indicated in the schedule above, and during any Option period. All Base Rent and Additional Rent (collectively “Rents”) shall be paid as follows, unless otherwise directed in writing at the following address: ____________________.

(b) Additional Rent. All obligations payable by Tenant under the Lease other than Base Rent are called “Additional Rent”. Unless otherwise provided, Additional Rent shall be paid with the next monthly installment of Base Rent upon invoicing from Landlord.

(c) Interest, Late Charges, Costs and Attorney’s Fees. If Tenant fails to pay within five (5) days of the date due any Rents which Tenant is obligated to pay under the Lease, the unpaid amount shall bear interest at ten (10%) percent per annum. Tenant acknowledges that any late payments of Rents shall cause Landlord to lose the use of that money and incur costs and expenses not contemplated under the Lease, including without limitation administrative, collection and accounting costs, the exact amount of which is difficult to ascertain. Therefore, in addition to interest, any payments not received by Landlord within five (5) days from the date it is due, Tenant shall also pay Landlord a late charge equal to five (5%) percent of the late Rents. Further, as Additional Rent, Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for costs and attorney’s fees incurred as a result of late payments or non-payments. Acceptance of any interest, late charge, costs or attorneys’ fees shall not constitute a waiver of any default by Tenant nor prevent Landlord from exercising any other rights or remedies under the Lease or at law.

(a) The Premises shall be used for general office purposes, and any other lawful purpose incidental to Tenant’s business, and no other, unless consented to in writing by Landlord. Tenant shall not do or permit to be done in or about the Premises or Building anything which is prohibited by or in any way in conflict with (in the case of hazardous materials, Tenant shall notify Landlord of any such materials and shall ensure that any such hazardous material is properly controlled, safeguarded, and disposed of) any and all laws, statutes, ordinances, rules and regulations now in force or which may hereafter be enacted or promulgated or which is prohibited by the standard form of fire insurance policy, or which will increase the existing rate of or affect any fire or other insurance upon the Premises or Building or any of its contents, or cause a cancellation of any insurance policy covering the Premises or Building or any part thereof or any of its contents. Tenant shall not do or permit anything to be done in or about the Premises or Building which will in any way violate Rules or Regulations reasonably promulgated by Landlord throughout the Lease, obstruct or interfere with the rights of other tenants, or injure them or use or allow the Premises or Building to be used for any improper, immoral, or unlawful purpose, nor shall Tenant cause, maintain or permit any nuisance, in, on or about the Premises of Building or commit or suffer to be committed any waste in, on or about the Premises or Building.
