All entries shall, where possible, be performed at such times and in such fashion so as not to unreasonably interfere with the conduct and operation of Tenant’s business.
(a) Event of Default. The occurrence of any of the following shall constitute an Event of Default hereunder by Tenant:
(i) The Rent or any other sum of money due of Tenant hereunder is not paid when due;
(ii) Tenant fails to bond off or otherwise remove or discharge in a manner acceptable to Landlord any lien filed against the Premises or the Project by reason of Tenant’s actions within ten (10) days after Tenant’s receipt of the notice of the filing of such lien;

(iv) Tenant fails to comply with any other provision hereof and persists in such failure for more than ten (10) days after Tenant’s receipt of written notice of such failure from Landlord.
(v) If an Event of Default occurs more than two (2) times within any period of twelve (12) months during the Term of this Lease, then, notwithstanding that each such event of default shall have been cured, any further default shall be deemed an Event of Default for which no notice or cure period shall apply.
(b) Remedies. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Landlord shall have the option to do and perform any one or more of the following:
(i) Terminate this Lease, in which event Tenant shall immediately surrender the Premises to Landlord. Upon any such termination, Tenant shall remain liable to Landlord for damages, due and payable monthly on the day Rent would have been payable hereunder, in an amount equal to the Rent and any other amounts which would have been owing by Tenant for the balance of the Term, had this Lease not been terminated, less the net proceeds, if any, of any reletting of the Premises by Landlord, plus the aggregate amount of all of Landlord’s costs and expenses (including, without limitation, advertising expenses and professional fees) incurred in connection with the termination of this Lease, the eviction of Tenant and such reletting;
(ii) Terminate Tenant’s right of possession of the Premises without terminating this Lease and enter upon and take possession of the Premises, change the locks and expel or remove Tenant and any other person who may be occupying said Premises or any part thereof, by entry, dispossessory suit or otherwise, without thereby releasing Tenant from any liability hereunder and without being liable for any claim for trespass or damages therefor. In such event Tenant shall remain liable for the payment of all Rent accruing after Tenant’s right to possession is terminated. Landlord may elect to re-let the Premises on terms and conditions satisfactory to Landlord in Landlord’s sole discretion, but Landlord shall have no obligation to do so;
(iii) As agent of Tenant, do whatever Tenant is obligated to do by the provisions of this Lease, including, but not limited to, entering the Premises, without being liable to prosecution or any claims for damages, in order to accomplish this purpose. Tenant agrees to reimburse Landlord immediately upon demand for any expenses which Landlord may incur in thus effecting compliance with this Lease on behalf of Tenant, and

Tenant further agrees that Landlord shall not be liable for any damages resulting to Tenant from such action, whether caused by the negligence of Landlord or otherwise;
(iv) Declare the entire amount of Rent and any other sums which would have become due and payable during the remainder of the Term to be due and payable immediately without notice to Tenant, and thereafter Landlord may terminate this Lease and recover from Tenant, not as a penalty but as full liquidated damages, an amount equal to (a) the amounts due and owing prior to such termination, plus (b) the cost of recovering the Premises, plus (c) reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, plus (d) a sum which, as of the date of termination, equals the present value [discounted at ten percent (10%) per annum] of (i) the Base Rent, Additional Rent and all other sums which would have been due from Tenant for the remainder of the Term (including any renewal term, if the Term has been extended), less (ii) the aggregate reasonable rental value of the Premises for the same period as determined by Landlord, accounting for the cost, time and other factors necessary to relet the Premises, plus (e) an amount equal to the balance that would still be owing to Landlord after the date of such termination if the sum of concessions made available to Tenant (including without limitation, tenant improvement allowances and brokerage commissions paid by Landlord) had been treated as a loan from Landlord to Tenant accruing interest at the rate of eight percent (8%) per annum, repayable over the original Term, which aggregate amount shall be immediately due and payable; provided, however, if Landlord elects to pursue this remedy, Landlord shall not thereafter pursue any of the other remedies set forth in this Section to collect Base Rent and Additional Rent due from Tenant. The foregoing limitation of remedies is without prejudice to Landlord’s right to enforce Tenant’s indemnity obligation with respect to claims, damages and liabilities (other than Rent) arising from Tenant’s occupancy of the Premises. Landlord and Tenant agree that such amounts constitute a good faith reasonable estimate of the damages which might be suffered by Landlord upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and that it is impossible to estimate more precisely such damages.
(v) Pursue any other right available to Landlord at law or in equity.
(c) Remedies Cumulative. Except as otherwise provided herein, all rights and remedies of Landlord created or otherwise existing at law or in equity are cumulative and the exercise of one or more rights or remedies shall not be taken to exclude or waive the right to exercise any other.
(d) No Waiver. Failure of Landlord to declare any default immediately upon occurrence thereof, or delay in taking any action in connection therewith, shall not waive such default, but Landlord shall have the right to declare any such default at any time and take such action as might be lawful or authorized hereunder, in law or in equity. Any waiver of or redress of or any violation of any covenant or condition contained in this Lease or any of the Rules now or hereafter adopted by Landlord, shall not prevent a subsequent act, which would have originally constituted a violation, from having all the force and effect of an original violation. The receipt by Landlord of Rent with knowledge of the breach of any covenant in this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach or be held to waive, affect, change, modify or alter the rights or remedies which Landlord has in equity or at law by virtue of this Lease.
(e) Demand Waived. Except as expressly provided in this Lease, Tenant waives any and every form of demand and notice prescribed by statute or other law, including without limitation the notice of any election of remedies made by Landlord under this Section, demand for payment of any rent, or demand for possession.
If the Premises, the Building or the Project are totally destroyed (or damaged so substantially that such damage cannot be repaired within ninety (90) days in the determination of Landlord’s architect or engineer) by storm, fire, earthquake or other casualty, Landlord shall have the option to (i) terminate this Lease as of the date of the occurrence of the casualty by giving written notice to Tenant within ninety (90) days from the date of such casualty; or (ii) commence the restoration of the Premises to a tenantable condition within thirty (30) days from the date of receipt by Landlord of all of the insurance proceeds paid with respect to such casualty, and proceed with due diligence to complete said restoration of the Premises; provided, however, that Landlord shall not be obligated to (iii) expend

for such repair an amount in excess of the net insurance proceeds actually received as a result of such casualty, or (iv) repair or replace any alteration or improvement made by or for the Tenant or any of Tenant’s trade fixtures, furniture, equipment or other property. If such damage or destruction occurs within one (1) year of the expiration of the Term, either party may, at its option on written notice to the other party within thirty (30) days of such destruction or damage, terminate this Lease as of the date of such destruction or damage.
If all or a part of the Premises is taken by virtue of eminent domain or other similar proceeding, or are conveyed in lieu of such taking, this Lease shall expire on the date when title or right of possession shall vest, and any Rent paid for any period beyond said date shall be repaid to Tenant. If all or a part of the Project other than the Premises is taken by virtue of eminent domain or other similar proceeding, or is conveyed in lieu of such taking, such that the remaining part of the Project shall be substantially and adversely affected thereby, then Landlord, in its sole discretion, may terminate, this Lease. If there is a partial taking where this Lease is not terminated, the Rent shall be adjusted in proportion to the rentable square footage of the Premises taken, as determined by the Landlord’s architect or engineer. In any event, Landlord shall be entitled to, and Tenant shall not have any right to claim, any award made in any condemnation proceeding, action or ruling relating to the Project or the Land.
Tenant hereby indemnifies and holds harmless Landlord from and against any injury, expense, damage, liability or claim, whether due to damage to the Premises, claims for injuries to the person or property of any other tenant of the Project or of any other person in or about the Project or the Property for any purpose whatsoever, or administrative or criminal action by a governmental authority, if such injury, expense, damage, liability or claim results directly or indirectly from the act, omission, negligence, misconduct or breach of this Lease by Tenant, the agents, servants, or employees of Tenant, or any other person entering in the Project or upon the Premises under the express or implied invitation or consent of Tenant. Tenant further agrees to reimburse Landlord for any costs or expenses, including, but not limited to court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees, which Landlord may incur in investigating, handling or litigating any such claim or any action by a governmental authority. Tenant shall report in writing to Landlord any defective condition in or about the Premises known to Tenant, and further agrees to attempt to contact Landlord immediately in such instance. The provisions of this Section shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
(a) Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall, commencing on the date Tenant is given access to the Premises for any purpose, and during the entire Term hereof, procure, pay for and keep in full force and effect:
(i) Commercial General Liability insurance on an occurrence basis with respect to the Premises and the operations on or on behalf of Tenant, in, on or about the Premises, including but not limited to personal injury, product liability (if applicable), blanket contractual, special form property damage liability coverage, liquor liability (if applicable), with minimum of $1,000,000 combined single limit for bodily injury and property damage per occurrence, and a $1,000,000 aggregate, with annual deductibles not to exceed $10,000, or such other, higher limits as Landlord may reasonably require during the term hereof. Such insurance shall name Landlord as an additional insured and shall be primary over any insurance carried by Landlord.
(ii) Workers’ Compensation coverage as required by law, including United States Longshoremen and Harborworkers Act (if applicable) and the Jones Act (if applicable), together with Employers Liability coverage with a limit of not less than $500,000.
(iii) Tenant shall be completely responsible for insuring it’s business personal property against all perils at it’s own discretion.

(iv) All insurance required hereunder shall be with companies rated A-X or better in the most recent edition of Best’s Insurance Guide and licensed in Georgia to provide the relevant insurance. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord at least fifteen (15) days prior to the time when such insurance is required to be carried by Tenant, and thereafter at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration or renewal date of any policy maintained by Tenant, copies of the policies or endorsements evidencing such insurance. Each such policy shall contain an unqualified thirty (30) day notice to Landlord of cancellation, non-renewal or material amendment thereof.
(b) Tenant shall have included in all policies of insurance respectively obtained by it with respect to the Project or Premises a waiver by the insurer of all right of subrogation against Landlord for any loss or damage thereby insured against, and Landlord shall have included in all property insurance policies required to be maintained by Landlord under this Lease a waiver by the insurer of all right of subrogation against the Tenant for any loss or damage thereby insured against. Anything in this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, Landlord and Tenant each hereby waives any and all rights of recovery, claim, action or cause of action against the other for any loss or damage that may occur to the Premises or any improvements thereto, or any personal property of Landlord or Tenant, arising from any cause that would be insured against under the terms of any property insurance required to be carried hereunder. The foregoing waiver shall apply regardless of the cause or origin of the claim, including but not limited to the negligence of a party or that party’s agents, officers, employees or contractors. The foregoing waiver shall not apply if it would have the effect, but only to the extent of such effect, of invalidating any insurance coverage of Landlord or Tenant.
Tenant shall not sublet any part of the Premises, nor assign this Lease or any interest herein, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Tenant agrees to pay Landlord $200.00 processing fee for the review of any proposed assignment or sublease, and, within ten (10) days after written demand, the amount of Landlord’s actual attorneys’ fees incurred as a result of the proposed assignment or sublease, each as Additional Rent. In addition, if the aggregate consideration paid to Tenant for an assignment or subletting exceeds that payable by Tenant under this Lease (prorated according to the transferred interest), Tenant shall pay Landlord fifty percent (50%) of such excess (after deducting therefrom reasonable leasing commissions and reasonable costs of tenant improvements paid to unaffiliated third parties in connection with the assignment or subletting, with proof of same provided to Landlord). Tenant shall pay Landlord for Landlord’s share of any such excess within thirty (30) days after Tenant’s receipt of such excess consideration. The sale or transfer of Tenant’s voting stock (if a corporation) or a partnership interest (if a partnership) or member interest (if a limited liability company) in Tenant resulting in the transfer of control of a majority of such stock or interest, or the occupancy of the Premises by any successor firm of Tenant or by any firm into which or with which Tenant may become merged or consolidated shall be deemed an assignment of this Lease requiring the prior written consent of Landlord. In no event shall Tenant be released from its obligations hereunder as a result of any assignment of this Lease.
This Lease shall be subject and subordinate to any deeds to secure debt or underlying lease that may now or hereafter affect this Lease or the Property. Tenant shall, at Landlord’s request, execute and deliver such further instruments as may be desired by the holder of any deed to secure debt (a “Mortgagee”) or by any lessor under any underlying lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord or such Mortgagee shall have the right to subordinate, in whole or in part, any such underlying lease or deed to secure debt to this Lease. In the event of exercise of the power of sale or conveyance in lieu of foreclosure under any deed to secure debt, Tenant shall at the option of the purchaser at such foreclosure or other sale, attorn to and recognize such purchaser as Landlord under this Lease. No such purchaser shall be (i) liable for any act or omission of the prior Landlord; (ii) subject to any offsets or defenses which Tenant might have against the prior Landlord; (iii) bound by any Rent or security deposit which Tenant might have paid in advance to the prior Landlord; (iv) obligated to cure any default of any prior Landlord under this Lease that occurred prior to the time that such purchaser succeeded to the interest of Landlord in the Property; or (v) bound by any amendment or modification of this Lease made without the prior written consent of such purchaser. If there is a default by Landlord under this Lease, Tenant covenants to give notice by registered mail to, in addition to Landlord, any grantee of a deed

to secure debt encumbering the Premises whose address shall have been furnished to Tenant, and such grantee shall have a reasonable opportunity to cure the default.
Landlord hereby grants to Tenant a non-exclusive license to use the parking, sidewalks, and other common areas of the North Point Park. Tenant will not obstruct in any manner any portion of the Common Areas and will not use the Common Areas in any manner, directly or indirectly, for the location or display of any property belonging to Tenant or appertaining to, directly or indirectly, the operation by Tenant of the store in the Premises. Landlord shall have the unrestricted right to construct additional improvements in the Office Park or increase, reduce, eliminate, relocate or change the size, dimensions, design or location of any or all common areas, buildings, or other improvements in the Office Park from time to time and in any manner Landlord deems appropriate. Tenant agrees that its use of the Common Areas, including its parking by Tenant and its employees, will be in accordance with such rules and regulations as may be promulgated by Landlord from time to time.
(a) Security Deposit. There is a $5,500.00 security deposit under this lease which shall be held by Landlord. However, Tenant shall be responsible for any damage caused by Tenant, beyond reasonable wear and tear, and shall pay such cost or make such repairs to Landlord’s satisfaction upon demand by Landlord upon vacating the Premises. The security deposit shall be refunded within 30 days after Tenant vacates the Premises and makes all necessary repairs.
(b) Brokerage. Landlord’s Broker and Tenant’s Broker, if any, are to be paid a commission by Landlord. Tenant warrants that there are no other claims for broker’s commissions or finder’s fees in connection with its execution of this Lease. Landlord and Tenant hereby indemnify and hold the other harmless from and against all claims, loss, cost, damage or expense, including, but not limited to, actual, reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred by the other as a result of a claim of any real estate agent or broker, if made by, through or under the indemnifying party relative to this Lease. The indemnities provided in this subsection (b) shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease.
(c) Holding Over. If Tenant remains in possession of the Premises after expiration of the Term, or after any termination of this Lease by Landlord without any written agreement between the parties, Tenant shall be a tenant at sufferance and such tenancy shall be subject to all the provisions hereof, except that the Base Rent for said holdover period shall be 150% the amount of Rent due in the last month of the Term. Nothing in this Section shall be construed as consent by Landlord to the possession of the Premises by Tenant after the expiration of the Term or any termination of this Lease by Landlord. This subsection (d) shall survive the expiration of or sooner termination of this Lease.
(d) Estoppel Certificate. Tenant shall, within ten (10) days after receipt of request from Landlord, execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord an estoppel certificate in such form as Landlord requires, evidencing whether or not this Lease is in full force and effect, there are any existing defaults on the part of Landlord hereunder, and any such other information reasonably requested by Landlord. Each certificate delivered pursuant to this Section may be relied on by Landlord, any prospective purchaser or transferee of Landlord’s interest hereunder, or any Mortgagee or prospective Mortgagee. Tenant irrevocably appoints Landlord as its attorney-in-fact, coupled with an interest, to execute and deliver, for and in the name of Tenant, any document or instrument provided for in this Section, if Tenant fails to provide same in a timely manner.

such other address for either party as that party may designate by notice in writing to the other. Notice shall be deemed given, upon receipt or rejection, and, if delivered personally, upon delivery thereof. Tenant hereby appoints as an agent of Tenant to receive the service of all dispossessory or distraint proceedings and notices thereunder the person in charge of or occupying the Premises at the time, and, if no person shall be in charge of or occupying the same, then such service may be made by attaching the same on the main entrance of the Premises. Notices given hereunder by any party may be given by counsel for such party.

Notwithstanding any provision in this Lease to the contrary, Landlord shall be excused for the period of any delay and shall not be deemed in default with respect to the performance of any of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease when prevented from so doing by causes beyond Landlord’s control, which shall include, but not be limited to, all labor disputes, governmental regulations or controls, fire or other casualty, inability to obtain any material or services, or acts of God.
(h) Quiet Enjoyment.

All Rent and other amounts of money payable by Tenant to Landlord under this Lease, if not paid when due, shall be subject to a late fee of five percent (5%) of the amount past due (which late fee represents an agreed upon charge for the administrative expense suffered by Landlord as the result of such late payment and not payment for the use of money) and shall bear simple interest from the due date until paid at a rate equal to the lesser of (i) eighteen percent (18%) or (ii) the highest rate of interest permitted by law, and Tenant agrees to pay said late fee and interest immediately and without demand.
(k) No Smoking. Tenant acknowledges that “smoking” is prohibited in all areas of the Premises and the Project (including common areas and all grounds) except in areas, if any, outside the Building that are designated by Landlord as “Designated Smoking Areas”.
