7. Casualty or Condemnation. If any material part of the Premises is taken by condemnation or the power of eminent domain (including voluntary sale or conveyance in lieu or under threat thereof), either Landlord or Tenant may terminate this Lease by written notice to the other. If portions of the Shopping Center other than the Premises are materially damaged, destroyed or taken, rendering the continued operation of the Shopping Center uneconomical in Landlord's reasonable business judgment, or if the Shopping Center no longer complies with the requirements of governmental. authority, Landlord may terminate this Lease by written notice to Tenant. Tenant must provide notice of termination, if at all, prior to receiving notice from Landlord that Landlord intends to restore the Premises. Landlord's notice of intent to restore extinguishes Tenant's termination right.

In the absence of termination of this Lease under this paragraph 7, Landlord will diligently restore the Premises to as near as possible their condition existing at the date of this Lease (with such additional improvements, if any, as Landlord agreed to make prior to Tenant's occupancy), after which Tenant will diligently further restore the Premises to as near as possible their condition existing prior to the damage, destruction or taking.

Tenant waives any compensation or damages from Landlord, any insurance proceeds from policies maintained by Landlord, and any award in condemnation or settlement in lieu thereof, arising from the Premises being damaged, destroyed or taken.

9. Assignment. Tenant may not assign this Lease or sublet all or any portion of the Premises without Landlord's prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. If Tenant is a legal entity, any consolidation, liquidation, or material change in the effective ownership, voting or operating control of such entity constitutes an assignment requiring Landlord's consent. The consent by Landlord to any assignment or subletting does not release Tenant from the obligation to obtain the consent of Landlord to any further assignment or subletting. No assignment or subletting relieves Tenant of liability under this Lease. For any request by Tenant, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a "Review Fee" which shall consist of the greater of i) the actual cost of any professional or administrative fees incurred by Landlord related to the review of Tenant's request or ii) $500.00.

Any consent, if given, shall be conditioned upon the full payment of the Review Fee by Tenant to Landlord

This Lease is subject and subordinate to any ground lease or other underlying leasehold interest, to any mortgage, deed of trust or other encumbrance, to all renewals, replacements and extensions thereof, and to any easements, covenants, conditions, restrictions, and other matters of record, now or in the future imposed by Landlord upon all or any portion of the Shopping Center. Tenant agrees not to violate any such superior instrument. Upon Landlord's request, Tenant will execute a written instrument evidencing the subordination described herein. Tenant agrees to attorn to the purchaser of the Premises at any foreclosure or sale and recognize such purchaser as landlord under this Lease.


11. Default. Tenant is in default under this Lease if Tenant fails to pay any Rent payable under this Lease within ten (10) days after the date payment is due, or fails to cure any other breach in Tenant's performance within ten (10) days after written notice from Landlord.

Tenant has no claim against Landlord for loss or damage resulting from any action taken by Landlord in good faith while Tenant is in default. Any acceptance of surrender, election to terminate this Lease, or waiver of Tenant's default by Landlord must be in writing and signed by Landlord to be effective. No delay or failure of Landlord to exercise any right or remedy arising from Tenant's default impairs such right or remedy, or constitutes a waiver of or acquiescence in Tenant's default. Termination of this Lease prior to expiration of the Term either terminates all or any sub tenancies, or operates as an assignment to Landlord of all or any sub tenancies, at Landlord's option.


12. Surrender. At expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant agrees to surrender the Premises, "broom clean," in good condition and repair (reasonable wear and tear excepted). Tenant must at its cost remove Tenant's exterior building signage, including Tenant's fascia sign, and repair, repaint and restore the affected area to its original condition.

No holding over is permitted without Landlord's prior written consent.
