e. Security Deposit. Lessee, contemporaneously with the execution of this Lease, has deposited with Lessor the sum of $________to be held by Lessor as security for the faithful performance by Lessee of all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease by Lessee to be kept and performed during the term hereof. The security deposit may be commingled by Lessor with other funds of the Lessor and shall bear no interest. If, at any time during the term of this Lease, any of the rent herein reserved shall be overdue and unpaid beyond applicable cure periods, or any other sum payable by Lessee to Lessor hereunder shall be overdue and unpaid beyond applicable cure periods, then Lessor may, at the option of Lessor (but Lessor shall not be required to) appropriate and apply any portion of said deposit to the payment of any such overdue rent or other sum. In the event of the failure of Lessee to keep and perform any of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease to be kept and performed by Lessee beyond applicable cure periods, then at the option of Lessor said Lessor may appropriate and apply said entire deposit, or so much thereof as may be necessary, to compensate Lessor for all loss or damage sustained or suffered by Lessor due to such breach on the part of Lessee. Should the entire deposit, or any portion thereof, be appropriated and applied by Lessor for the payment of overdue rent or other sums due and payable to Lessor by Lessee hereunder, then Lessee shall, upon the written demand of Lessee’s, forthwith remit to Lessor a sufficient amount in cash to restore said security to the amount held by Lessor prior to such appropriation and application and Lessee’s failure to do so within ten (10) days after receipt of such demand shall constitute a default hereunder entitling Lessor to immediately invoke the remedies set forth in paragraph 35, including the termination of this Lease. Should Lessee comply with all of said terms, covenants and conditions and promptly pay all of the rentals herein provided for as the same fall due, and all other sums payable by Lessee to Lessor hereunder, the said deposit shall be returned in full to Lessee after Lessee shall have vacated the Premises at the end of the term of this Lease or upon the earlier termination of this Lease. In the event any bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other creditor-debtor proceedings shall be instituted by or against Lessee, the security deposit shall be deemed to be applied first to payment of any rents and/or other charges due Lessor for all periods prior to the institution of such proceedings, and the balance, if any, of the security deposit may be retained by Lessor in partial liquidation of Lessor’s damages. Lessor may transfer and/or deliver the security, as such, to any purchaser of Lessor’s interest in the Premises and thereupon Lessor shall be discharged from any further liability in reference thereto.
