All Tenant Leases shall be on Owner’s standard lease form or on a lease form approved by Owner.

(l) Annually during the term, Manager shall prepare and deliver to Owner a budget, for Owner’s reasonable approval, reflecting the Gross Receipts and Operating Expenses (defined below) which Manager expects to receive and incur, respectively, during Owner’s forthcoming fiscal year (the “Budget”), it being agreed that if Owner for any reason does not respond to any proposed Budget within thirty (30) days after Owner’s receipt thereof, said Budget shall be deemed approved. If at any time during the period covered by an approved Budget it appears to Manager that the actual total of all Operating Expenses likely to be incurred during said period will exceed the Budget’s projected total by more than ten percent (10%), Manager shall promptly so advise Owner, and Owner and Manager shall jointly discuss what actions, if any, could be taken to minimize the Operating Expenses without substantially impairing operations hereunder.

The Owner shall pay Manager for expenses incurred by Manager in the performance of its duties, obligations and services pursuant to this Agreement (collectively, “Operating Expenses”).

Owner shall procure the property insurance specified in Section 11 herein, but the cost shall be deemed an Operating Expense. In addition, certain Owner costs as designated in Section 9 herein below may be deemed Operating Expenses at Owner’s option. Such Operating Expenses shall be paid from the Premises Account (defined in Section 4 below).

Operating Expenses shall not include (i) the costs of maintenance and repair required of Owner hereunder, or (ii) Owner’s various costs associated with its ownership and/or occupancy of the Premises, including without limitation depreciation, real estate taxes and assessments, taxes on Owner’s personal property, debt retirement (including without limitation mortgage interest), rent and such costs and expenses as may be necessitated to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990). Payment of such expenses and costs are the sole obligation of Owner.

“Reimbursable Costs” are any expenses which are not deemed Operating Expenses and are approved by Owner prior to expenditure.

If Owner disputes any Operating Expense or Reimbursable Cost, Owner shall give Manager written notice specifying the item disputed and the reason therefor. Payment for any Operating Expense or Reimbursable Cost which is not disputed shall not be withheld. The parties shall, in good faith, diligently pursue resolution of any disputed item within thirty (30) days of said notice.

All Gross Receipts collected by Manager shall be deposited in an account in the State of ____________ (the “Premises Account”) established at a federally insured bank or trust company, and Manager shall be under no liability or responsibility for any loss resulting from the insolvency of any such depository.

“Gross Receipts” shall mean (a) all cash collected by Manager from Tenants for amounts due under the Tenant Leases, whether rent, reimbursable charges, or other amounts, provided all said amounts are amounts that are due under the Tenant Leases, and (b) all cash collected from all other operations whatsoever at the Premises including, without limitation, and as applicable, laundry and vending machines and billboard and other advertising.

“Net Profit” is the balance remaining after deducting all Operating Expenses and Reimbursable Costs from Gross Receipts.
