Landlord.

replacements shall mean repairs or replacements which require an expenditure in excess of Three
Hundred Dollars ($300.00) for any single repair or replacement. Costs and expenses such as
security, fire protection, heating and air conditioning repairs and maintenance, annual and semi-
annual cleaning, pest control, waste removal, landscaping, snow removal, and property
management fees are the responsibility of Landlord.

        (c)     Landlord and its agents and employees shall have the right to enter upon the Leased
Premises (i) without prior notice at reasonable times to inspect the same; and (ii) to enter the
Leased Premises with reasonable prior notice, unless an emergency exists, to make repairs or
perform maintenance to the Leased Premises as Landlord reasonably may deem necessary. No
such entry shall constitute any eviction of Tenant in whole or in part, nor shall Tenant be entitled to
an abatement of Rent while such repairs are being made. Landlord's foregoing right of entry shall
not be construed to impose upon Landlord any obligation or liability whatsoever for the maintenance
or repair of the Leased Premises, except as expressly provided in this Lease.

        9.2     Maintenance and Repairs by Tenant. Tenant, at Tenant's expense, shall provide
all other maintenance for, and make all other repairs and replacements to, the Leased Premises and
the Personal Property which are not the responsibility of Landlord under subparagraph 9.1 so as to
keep and maintain the Leased Premises and Personal Property at all times in good order and repair,
in a clean and attractive condition, and in compliance with all applicable laws, ordinances, rules,
regulations, orders and decrees of any governmental authority affecting or relating to the use,
maintenance or repair of the Leased Premises; provided, however, in no event shall Tenant be
required to expend during the Term more than ________________ dollars (_________) in the
aggregate (the "Maximum Expenditure") for repairs and/or replacements to the Leased Premises
and Personal Property. At such time during the Term as Tenant has expended the Maximum
Expenditure, Landlord, at Landlord's expense, shall thereafter during the Term provide such repairs
and replacements. Tenant shall maintain accurate books and records with respect to the costs and


                                                  4
expenses incurred by it in the performance of its obligations under this subparagraph 9.2 and shall
provide copies thereof to Landlord upon request.

        9.3     Notice of Need for Repairs. Tenant shall give Landlord prompt notice of the need
for any repair or replacement which Landlord is obligated to make under subparagraphs 9.1 or 9.2
and of any material damage to the Leased Premises or Personal Property.

provisions of paragraph 9, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord, upon receipt of a written demand
providing receipts or other evidence thereof, for all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord for
making repairs or replacements occasioned by the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant, its
employees, agents, guests or invitees or the negligence or willful misconduct of the occupants of the
House or their guests or invitees.

        10.     Assignment, Subletting or Encumbrance. Tenant shall not assign, mortgage,
encumber or transfer this Lease or its interest therein, or sublet the whole or any part of the Leased
Premises (other than residence contracts with the members of the Chapter, the form of which shall
be provided by The Fraternity), without Landlord's prior written consent, which consent may be
granted or withheld in Landlord's sole discretion. This prohibition shall include any act which has the
effect of an assignment or transfer, including (but not limited to) a transfer by operation of law
(voluntary or involuntary). The consent by Landlord to any assignment or subletting shall not
constitute a waiver of the requirement for such consent to any subsequent assignment or subletting.

        11.     Access to Leased Premises. Landlord and its agents and employees shall have
the right to enter upon the Leased Premises at reasonable times with reasonable prior notice to
show the Leased Premises to prospective purchasers, mortgagees and tenants.

       12.     Insurance.

       12.1 Tenant's Public Liability Insurance. Tenant shall maintain public liability insurance
coverage in the amounts as may be required and through The Fraternity’s National Insurance
Program, and make payments to The Fraternity (via National Per Capita Dues) for this coverage.

        12.2 Insurance on Leased Premises. Landlord, at its cost, shall maintain in full force
and effect throughout the Term Special or All-Risk insurance on the Leased Premises and the
Personal Property owned by Landlord for the full insurable value thereof on a replacement cost
basis through the Fraternity National Insurance Program.

        12.3 Certificates of Insurance. For each type of insurance which Tenant or Landlord is
required to maintain under this Lease, such party shall maintain a certificate of insurance showing
that each such insurance is in full force and effect and not cancelable without ten (10) days prior
written notice to Landlord or Tenant (as applicable).

        12.4 Tenant's Waiver of Claims. Landlord shall not be liable for, and Tenant waives all
claims against Landlord for, any injury (including death), damages (including, but not limited to,
consequential damages) or losses of or to person, property, including personal automobile, or
otherwise, sustained by Tenant and not covered by insurance, unless resulting solely from
Landlord's negligence or willful misconduct. All property of Tenant or the occupants of the House
kept or stored in, upon or about the Leased Premises shall be kept or stored at the sole risk of such
parties; and Tenant and/or such occupants shall maintain such insurance as they deem necessary
to protect them from loss.

                                                  5
        13.     Tenant's Indemnification. Regardless of whether or not caused or alleged to be
caused by the several, joint, concurrent or comparative negligence, but not sole negligence or willful
misconduct, of Landlord, its agents or employees, Tenant assumes all risk and responsibility for
accident, injury (including death) or damage to person or property and agrees to indemnify and hold
Landlord harmless from any and all claims, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses (including
attorneys' fees) arising from or in connection with (i) the condition, use or control of the Leased
Premises during the Term, (ii) Tenant's breach of any term, covenant, or agreement to be observed
or performed by Tenant under this Lease, or (iii) any accident, injury (including death) or damage to
persons or property whatsoever in or about the Leased Premises during the Term.

         14.     Fire and Other Casualty. In the event of the total or partial destruction of the House
by fire or other casualty, Landlord may, at its option exercisable within thirty (30) days after the date
of such destruction, terminate this Lease by written notice to Tenant specifying the termination date
of this Lease. In the event Landlord does not so terminate this Lease, Landlord shall thereupon
promptly repair and restore the Leased Premises to substantially the same condition as at the
commencement of the Term. The insurance proceeds, if any, which as a result of such destruction
are payable under any fire and extended coverage insurance maintained by Landlord shall be
payable to, and be the sole property of, Landlord. Rent shall abate proportionately during the time
that the Leased Premises or any part thereof is unusable by reason of any such destruction to the
Leased Premises. If Landlord chooses to offer temporary housing due to property loss where
Tenant has to move out of the House; Landlord is only obligated to find comparable housing for the
residents.

        15.     Default by Tenant.

        15.1    Events of Default. Each of the following shall be deemed a default by Tenant:

        (a)     Tenant's failure to pay Rent as required in paragraph 3 when due;

       (b)    Tenant's failure to observe or perform any other term or covenant of this Lease to be
observed or performed by Tenant;

        (c)     The termination of the Chapter's affiliation with the Fraternity.

        15.2 Landlord's Rights upon Tenant's Default. In the event of any default provided in
subparagraph (a) of subparagraph 15.1 continuing for in excess of fifteen (15) days, or in the event
of any default provided in subparagraph (b) of the subparagraph 15.1 continuing in excess of thirty
(30) days (except in the event such default may not reasonably be cured within said thirty (30) day
period, in which case the period of cure shall be extended so long as Tenant commences its efforts
to cure the default within the thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently pursues the same to
completion) without any demand or notice, Landlord, in addition to any other rights or remedies at
law or in equity, may:

        (a)     terminate this Lease effective immediately upon delivery of written notice of
termination to Tenant and Landlord may enter the Leased Premises, remove all persons and
property therefrom and store such property in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the sole cost and
for the account of Tenant, all without resort to legal process and without being deemed guilty of
trespass or becoming liable for any loss or damage that may be occasioned thereby;

       (b)    in the event that Tenant has failed to perform any covenant under this Lease other
than a covenant to pay Rent, perform on behalf of and at the expense of Tenant the covenant or
covenants as to which Tenant is in default (entering upon the Leased Premises for such purpose, if
                                                   6
necessary). The cost of such performance by Landlord, together with interest thereon at the rate
provided in subparagraph 3.3 from the date such expenditure is made or cost incurred, shall be
additional rent and shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord upon demand. Landlord's performance of
any such covenant shall not be construed as a waiver of Tenant's default or of any other right or
remedy of Landlord in respect of such default, nor as a waiver of any covenant, term or condition of
this Lease; and/or

         (c)    immediately re-enter the Leased Premises, remove all persons and property
therefrom, store such property in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the sole cost and for the
account of Tenant, all without service of notice or resort to legal process, without being deemed
guilty of trespass or becoming liable for any loss or damage which may be occasioned thereby. No
re-entry or taking of possession by Landlord of the Leased Premises shall be construed as an
election to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of termination is given to Tenant.

        Notwithstanding the provisions of subparagraph 15.2 regarding notice and opportunity to
cure, in the event of a default provided in subparagraph (b) of paragraph 15.1, Landlord may
exercise the remedy provided in subparagraph (b) of this paragraph 15.2 without any notice to
Tenant of its unperformed obligation if the unperformed obligation of Tenant constitutes an
emergency.

       15.3 Damages upon Termination. In the event that Landlord at any time terminates this
Lease for any default by Tenant, in addition to any other remedies Landlord may have, Landlord
may recover from Tenant any damages which may be due or sustained prior to such termination, all
damages Landlord may incur by reason of such default, including costs of recovering the Leased
Premises, reasonable attorneys' fees, and the value at the time of such termination of the amount
of Rent and charges equivalent to Rent reserved in this Lease for the remainder of the Term. All
such amounts shall be immediately due and payable from Tenant to Landlord.

        16.     Surrender. Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant shall quit
and surrender to Landlord the Leased Premises and the Personal Property, together with all fixtures
and leasehold improvements, alterations and additions to the Leased Premises, broom clean, and in
good order and condition, ordinary wear and tear and damage by casualty excepted. Tenant shall
remove all of its personal property and cause the occupants of the House to remove their personal
property from the Leased Premises upon or prior to such surrender, and any such personal property
which shall remain shall be deemed to have been abandoned by the Landlord thereof, and, at the
option of Landlord, the property: (i) shall be retained by Landlord as its property, (ii) shall be
disposed of by Landlord in such manner as Landlord shall determine, at Tenant's expense, without
accountability to any person, or (iii) shall be removed by Landlord and stored at Tenant's expense.
Tenant hereby agrees to pay all costs and expenses of any removal and of the repair of any
damage to the Leased Premises caused by such removal. Tenant's obligation to observe and
perform these covenants shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. A
representative of Landlord will inspect the House on behalf of Landlord for damage. If damage
other than normal wear and tear exists, the cost to repair such damage will be withheld by Landlord
from the Damage Deposit provided for in paragraph 4 of this Lease.

        17.     Notices. Any notice, demand, consent or waiver required or permitted to be given or
served by either party to this Lease shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given
when (i) delivered in person;(ii) sent via overnight carrier; or (iii) mailed by United States certified or
registered mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, addressed to the other party as follows:

        If to Landlord:         _________________________________________

hereunder be construed as a waiver of such default or Landlord's right to terminate this Lease on
account of such default.

Lease shall not affect the other provisions, and this Lease shall be construed in all respects as if
