THIS PROPERTY MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT ("Agreement") made as of ______________ by and between ______________________, a _______________ ("Owner") and ______________., a _____________ corporation ("Agent").


A. Owner is the owner of the land and improvements constituting a neighborhood shopping center known as _______________ (the "Property").

B. Owner desires to retain Agent as its exclusive agent for the purposes of leasing and managing the Property on behalf of Owner and Agent is willing to act as agent for Owner with respect to the Property on the terms and conditions of the Agreement as more fully set forth herein.

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the agreements and covenants herein contained, and intending to be legally bound hereby, Owner and Agent agree as follows:

1. Owner hereby employs Agent to manage and lease as the exclusive broker the property upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth for an initial term of three (3) years from the date hereof unless otherwise extended, renewed or terminated as hereinafter set forth.

2. Agent agrees to perform the following:

2.1. Use its best efforts to lease or cause brokers or other agents to lease on behalf of Owner all available space in the Property;

2.2. Diligently to collect rents, additional rents and all other sums due from tenants when due and, where necessary or appropriate, and except as directed otherwise by Owner (in which event Owner shall bear the administrative costs of relieving Agent of such duty or duties), take all such actions as Agent shall deem necessary or advisable to enforce all rights and remedies of Owner under the leases relating to the Property (the "Leases") or to protect the interest of Owner, including, without limitation, the preparation and delivery to tenants under the Leases ("Tenants") of all "late payment", default, and other appropriate notices, requests, bills, demands, and statements. Agent may retain counsel, collection agencies, and such other persons and firms as Agent shall deem appropriate or advisable to enforce, after notification to Owner, by legal action the rights and remedies of Owner against any Tenant default in the performance of its obligations under a Lease. Agent shall promptly notify Owner of the progress of any such legal action;

2.3. To pay from the operating funds of the Property or such other funds as are provided by Owner bills and expenses for the maintenance, repair and operation of the Property, provided, however, that all expenditures in excess of $_________ in any single transaction or more than $__________ in the aggregate in any period of twelve (12) consecutive months shall be subject to Owner's approval unless such expenditure is included in the operating budget for the Property that has been approved by Owner, and provided further that Agent shall notify Owner of any budget expenditures cumulatively exceeding ten percent (10%) of any approved annual budget;

2.4. To establish and maintain such books of account, records, and other documentation pertaining to the operation and maintenance of the Property as are customarily maintained by managing agents of properties similar in location and size to that of the Property. Agent shall prepare or cause to be prepared and file all returns and other reports relating to the Property, other than income tax returns and any reports or returns that may be required of any foreign owner of U.S. real property, as may be required by any governmental authority or otherwise under this Agreement. Agent shall periodically report to Owner on the general operations, occupancy, physical condition, disbursements, delinquencies, uncollectible accounts, and other matters relating to the Property. Agent shall prepare and forward to Owner a written report each month showing the receipts and expenditures for such month, the receipts and expenditures year-to-date and the variations from the agreed upon budget. These statements shall, upon Owner's request, be accompanied by appropriate documentation of all expenditures made by Agent under this Agreement. As soon as practicable after the end of each calendar year and after the expiration or termination of this Agreement, Agent shall use reasonable efforts to prepare and deliver to Owner statements pertaining to the operation and maintenance of the Property during the preceding calendar year. Agent shall prepare and submit to Owner for its approval no later than December 1st of each calendar year (or such later date as the parties agree) a proposed pro forma budget for all costs pertaining to the operation and maintenance of the Property during the ensuing calendar year. Each such budget shall be substantially in the same form as the approved budget in effect for the prior calendar year, shall set forth expenditures on an annual and a monthly basis, and shall not, except for informational purposes, include estimates for costs and expenses for which Owner will be reimbursed by Tenants under the Leases. Agent shall make such reasonable modifications to each proposed pro forma budget it prepares in accordance with this section until Owner shall have approved this budget in writing, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Such budget and revisions shall be deemed to be accepted and approved by Owner unless specifically rejected or accepted within fifteen (15) days of submission;

2.5. To account for all advance deposits of Tenants;

2.6. To refund to Tenants from escrow accounts, funds of the Property or funds provided by Owner, as appropriate, pro-rated rents, rebates, allowances, advance deposit refunds, and such other amounts as are legally due Tenants;

2.9. To respond to complaints and inquiries by Tenants, prospective tenants and others, and to take such corrective actions as Agent deems appropriate;

In so contracting, Agent may contract with entities or persons affiliated with it, provided, however, that the rates and charges of the affiliated entity or person are generally competitive and consistent with rates and charges by non-affiliated entities and will obtain a minimum of two competitive bids from nonaffiliated contractors respecting any contract exceeding ________________ ($________);
