Monthly rent payments and additional rent shall commence on _____________ (which date is hereinafter referred to as the "RENT COMMENCEMENT DATE").

3.2. CONFIRMATION OF COMMENCEMENT AND TERMINATION. The Landlord and the Tenant at the Landlord's option and request after (a) the Rent Commencement Date or (b) the expiration of the Term or any earlier termination of this Lease by action of law or in any other manner, shall confirm in writing by instrument in recordable form that, respectively, such rent commencement or such termination has occurred, setting forth therein, respectively, the Rent Commencement Date and the Termination Date.

3.3. SURRENDER. The Tenant, at its expense at the expiration of the Term or any earlier termination of this Lease, shall (a) promptly surrender to the Landlord possession of the Premises (including any fixtures or other improvements which are owned by the Landlord) in good order and repair (ordinary wear and tear excepted) and broom clean, (b) remove therefrom all signs, goods, effects, machinery, fixtures and equipment used in conducting the Tenant's trade or business which are neither part of the Building Service Equipment nor owned by the Landlord, and (c) repair any damage caused by such removal.

3.4. HOLDING OVER. If the Tenant continues to occupy the Premises after the expiration of the Term or any earlier termination of this Lease after obtaining the Landlord's express, written consent thereto, then:

(a) such occupancy (unless the parties hereto otherwise agree in writing) shall be deemed to be under a month-to-month tenancy, which shall continue until either party hereto notifies the other in writing, at least one month before the end of any calendar month, that the notifying party elects to terminate such tenancy at the end of such calendar month, in which event such tenancy shall so terminate;

(b) anything in this section to the contrary notwithstanding, the Rent payable for each monthly period shall equal the sum of (a) one-twelfth (1/12) of that amount which is equal to twice the Base Rent for the Lease Year during which such expiration of the Term or termination of this Lease occurs, plus (b) the Additional Rent payable under subsection 4.2; and

(c) except as provided herein, such month-to-month tenancy shall be on the same terms and subject to the same conditions as those set forth in this Lease; provided, however, that if the Landlord gives the Tenant, at least one month before the end of any calendar month during such month-to-month tenancy, written notice that such terms and conditions (including any thereof relating to the amount and payment of Rent) shall, after such month, be modified in any manner specified in such notice, then such tenancy shall, after such month, be upon the said terms and subject to the said conditions, as so modified.

4. RENT: SECURITY DEPOSIT. As Rent for the Premises, the Tenant shall pay to the Landlord all of the following:

4.1. BASE RENT. An annual rent (the "BASE RENT") as follows:


4.2. ADDITIONAL RENT. Additional rent ("ADDITIONAL RENT") shall include any and all charges or other amounts which the Tenant is obligated to pay to the Landlord under this Lease, other than the Base Rent.


4.3.1. COMPUTATION. Within one hundred twenty (120) days after the end of each calendar year during the Term, the Landlord shall compute the total of the Operating Costs incurred for the Property during such calendar year, and the Landlord shall allocate them to each separate rentable space within the Property in proportion to the respective operating costs percentages assigned to such spaces; provided that anything in this subsection 4.3 to the contrary notwithstanding, whenever the Tenant and/or any other tenant of space within the Property has agreed in its lease or otherwise to provide any item of such services partially or entirely at its own expense, or wherever in the Landlord's sole judgment any such significant item of expense is not incurred with respect to or for the benefit of all of the net rentable space within the Building (including but not limited to any such expense which, by its nature, is incurred only with respect to those spaces which are occupied), in allocating the Operating Costs pursuant to this subsection, the Landlord shall make an appropriate adjustment, using generally accepted accounting principles, as aforesaid, so as to avoid allocating to the Tenant or to such other tenant (as the case may be) those Operating Costs covering such services already being provided by the Tenant or by such other tenant at its own expense, or to avoid allocating to all of the net rentable space within the Building those Operating Costs incurred only with respect to a portion thereof, as aforesaid. The Tenant shall have the right, during normal business hours at the Landlord's offices, to review the books and records of the Landlord with respect to the calculation of Operating Costs for the prior Lease Year, at the Tenant's sole expense, provided (i) the Tenant provides at least fifteen (15) days' advance written notice to the Landlord of its desire to inspect such books and records, and (ii) such request is made within sixty (60) days after the Operating Costs Statement is delivered by the Landlord to the Tenant. If the Tenant does not notify the Landlord within such 60-day period, then all sums included as Operating Costs shall be deemed acceptable to the Tenant and thereafter the Tenant shall have no right to dispute in any manner any sums included within Operating Costs for such prior Lease Year. Landlord shall exclude the following items from the calculation of Operating Costs: janitorial services and building security.

4.3.2. PAYMENT AS ADDITIONAL RENT. Within fifteen (15) days after demand therefor by the Landlord (with respect to each calendar year during the Term), accompanied by a statement setting forth the Operating Costs for such calendar year (the "OPERATING COSTS STATEMENT"), the Tenant shall pay to the Landlord, as Additional Rent, the amount equaling Tenant's Proportionate Share of the Operating Costs for such calendar year. In addition to the Base Rent, Tenant shall pay on a monthly basis, an estimated payment towards its obligation for Operating Costs. The monthly payments shall be __________________ dollars ($_____) per month.

4.3.3. PRORATION. If only part of any calendar year falls within the Term, the amount computed as Additional Rent for such calendar year under this subsection shall be prorated in proportion to the portion of such calendar year falling within the Term (but the expiration of the Term before the end of a calendar year shall not impair the Tenant's obligation hereunder to pay such prorated portion of such Additional Rent for that portion of such calendar year falling within the Term, which amount shall be paid on demand, as aforesaid).

4.3.4. LANDLORD'S RIGHT TO ESTIMATE. Anything in this subsection to the contrary notwithstanding, the Landlord, at its reasonable discretion, may (a) make from time to time during the Term a reasonable estimate of the Additional Rent which may become due under this subsection for any calendar year, (b) require the Tenant to pay to the Landlord for each calendar month during such year one twelfth (1/12) of such Additional Rent, at the time and in the manner that the Tenant is required hereunder to pay the monthly installment of the Base Rent for such month, and (c) increase or decrease from time to time during such calendar year the amount initially so estimated for such calendar year, all by giving the Tenant written notice thereof, accompanied by a schedule setting forth in reasonable detail the expenses comprising the Operating Costs, as so estimated. In such event, the Landlord shall cause the actual amount of such Additional Rent to be computed and certified to the Tenant within one hundred twenty (120) days after the end of such calendar year. Any overpayment or deficiency in the Tenant's payment of Tenant's Proportionate Share of Operating Costs shall be adjusted between the Landlord and the Tenant; the Tenant shall pay the Landlord or the Landlord shall credit to the Tenant's account (or, if such adjustment is at the end of the Term, the Landlord shall pay to the Tenant), as the case may be, within fifteen (15) days after such notice to the Tenant, such amount necessary to effect such adjustment. The Landlord's failure to provide such notice within the time prescribed above shall not relieve the Tenant of any of its obligations hereunder.


4.4.1. BASE RENT. The Base Rent for any Lease Year shall be due and payable in twelve (12) consecutive, equal monthly installments, in advance, on the first (1st) day of each calendar month during such Lease Year. In addition, the Base Rent for the first full calendar month shall be due and payable upon execution of the Lease. Rent for any partial calendar month shall be due and payable five (5) days after the Rent Commencement Date.

4.4.2. ADDITIONAL RENT. Any Additional Rent accruing to the Landlord under this Lease, except as is otherwise set forth herein, shall be due and payable when the installment of Base Rent next falling due after such Additional Rent accrues and becomes due and payable, unless the Landlord makes written demand upon the Tenant for payment thereof at any earlier time, in which event such Additional Rent shall be due and payable at such time.

4.4.3. NO SET-OFF; LATE PAYMENT. Each such payment shall be made promptly when due, without any deduction or setoff whatsoever, and without demand, failing which the Tenant shall pay to the Landlord as Additional Rent, after the fifth (5th) day after such payment remains due but unpaid, a late charge equal to five percent (5%) of such payment which remains due but unpaid. In addition, any payment that is not paid by the tenth (10th) day after such payment is due shall bear interest at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum. Any payment made by the Tenant to the Landlord on account of Rent may be credited by the Landlord to the payment of any Rent then past due before being credited to Rent currently falling due. Any such payment which is less than the amount of Rent then due shall constitute a payment made on account thereof, the parties hereto hereby agreeing that the Landlord's acceptance of such payment (whether or not with or accompanied by an endorsement or statement that such lesser amount or the Landlord's acceptance thereof constitutes payment in full of the amount of Rent then due) shall not alter or impair the Landlord's rights hereunder to be paid all of such amount then due, or in any other respect.

4.5. WHERE PAYABLE. The Tenant shall pay the Rent, in lawful currency of the United States of America, to the Landlord by delivering or mailing it to the Landlord's address which is set forth in section 20, or to such other address or in such other manner as the Landlord from time to time specifies by written notice to the Tenant.

4.6 TAX ON LEASE. If federal, state or local law now or hereafter imposes any tax, assessment, levy or other charge directly or indirectly upon (a) the Landlord with respect to this Lease or the value thereof, (b) the Tenant's use or occupancy of the Premises, (c) the Base Rent, Additional Rent or any other sum payable under this Lease, or (d) this transaction, then the Tenant shall pay the amount thereof as Additional Rent to the Landlord upon demand, unless the Tenant is prohibited by law from doing so, in which event the Landlord at its election may terminate this Lease by giving written notice thereof to the Tenant.



6.1 NATURE OF USE. The Tenant shall use the Premises only for general offices, storage and photo copy shop open to the general public.

6.2 COMPLIANCE WITH LAW AND COVENANTS. The Tenant, throughout the Term and at its sole expense, in its use and possession of the Premises, shall:

(b) (without limiting the generality of the foregoing provisions of this subsection) keep in force throughout the Term all licenses, consents and permits necessary for the lawful use of the Premises for the purposes herein provided;

The Tenant shall reimburse the

Landlord for any amount paid by the Landlord to discharge any such lien and all expenses incurred by the Landlord in connection therewith, together with interest thereon at the rate of twenty percent (20%) per annum from the respective dates of the Landlord's making such payments or incurring such expenses (all of which shall constitute Additional Rent).
