                                        LEASE AND HOUSE RULES

Residents of LMHA are governed by both the Lease Agreement and House Rules/Housekeeping Standards.
Prior to occupancy, each resident should receive a set of the Lease Agreement and House Rules/Housekeeping
Standards. This information should also be verbally communicated to avoid any misunderstandings regarding
the terms of occupancy. A resident should not be housed or given access to the apartment until the Lease
Agreement and House Rules/Housekeeping Standards have been explained and a move-in inspection is
completed. Residents should also be properly instructed on the use of appliances, thermostats, refrigerators,
stoves, air conditioners, community facilities and other amenities within the apartment or community.

The original Lease and House Rules/Housekeeping Standards are to be signed by all adult members of the
household and filed on the right hand side of the resident’s management file. A new Lease is signed with
residents when adults are added to or removed from the lease or in the event of a transfer (except in the event of
transfer initiated by fire. See the Director of Property Management or Staff Attorney for further direction.)

A copy of the executed Lease and House Rules/Housekeeping Standards are to be given to the resident at the
time of move-in or transfer.

check made by the appropriate Police Department, and a unit of proper size is available. Reporting of live births and adoptions is required and must be reported in
writing, and within ten (10) days of birth or adoption, to LMHA. Permission to add live-in aides or foster children will not be unreasonably refused. The Authority
shall approve or disapprove new occupants within twenty-one (21) days, in writing, after the addition is requested. If Resident violates this provision by failing to

    Section 2.        TERM AND RENEWAL OF LEASE

The initial term of this Lease shall be one year. This lease shall automatically be renewed for successive

sufficiency program in accordance with 24 CFR 960 Subpart F, unless exempted. At any time, LMHA may
terminate the tenancy in accordance with 24 CFR 966.4(l) and Section 15 of this Lease . The parties agree and
acknowledge that the Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy and House Rules/Housekeeping Standards, and amendments thereto adopted from time to time, are
incorporated herein and made a part hereof by reference as if fully repeated in this Lease. A copy of the LMHA’s Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy and
House Rules/Housekeeping Standards shall be posted in Resident’s Management Office and at LMHA’s Central Office, 435 Nebraska Avenue, Toledo, Ohio, 43602.

    Section 3.        RENT PAYMENTS

    (a)    Monthly rent of $                          shall be due and payable, in advance, on or before the first day of each month beginning            ,         .
The pro-rata share of the rent to the end of the first month is $                    . Resident is entitled to a utility reimbursement           of $__________.
The rent shall be considered delinquent if received after the close of business on the 5th business day of the month. Rent may include utilities as described
herein and includes all maintenance services due to normal wear and tear. Rent shall not be delinquent if mailed and the envelope is postmarked on the 5th day of the
month. Rent and other charges can be paid at the Central Office located at 435 Nebraska Avenue, Toledo, Ohio, 43602, in person or by the payment drop box located
at the rear of the building, or at the Resident’s Management Office, or by mailing to LMHA, P.O. Box 477, Toledo, Ohio, 43697-0477. LMHA will not accept cash
payments.

    (b)    When the LMHA makes any change in the amount of the Total Tenant Payment or Tenant Rent, the LMHA shall give written notice to the Resident. The
notice shall state the new amount, and the date from which the new amount is applicable. Rent redeterminations are subject to the Administrative Grievance
Procedure, OPERATING SUPPLEMENT #28. The notice shall also state that the Resident may ask for an explanation of how the amount is computed by the
LMHA. If the Resident asks for an explanation, the LMHA shall respond within fifteen (15) days.




                                                                                 2
     (c)    Resident is required to pay retroactive rent. Retroactive rent is rent owed by the Resident to LMHA resulting from, among other things, Resident’s failure
to provide adequate documentation, report changes in income or family composition in a timely manner (within ten (10) days of date of change) or otherwise
misrepresent income or family circumstances to LMHA. Except as otherwise provided by the Admissions and Occupancy Policy, Resident shall pay the full amount of
retroactive rent in the same month that the retroactive rent is posted to Resident’s rent account and LMHA may agree to a payment plan in some instances. Copies of
the payment plan agreement can be obtained at the LMHA Central Office or in the Management Office. Resident’s failure to pay timely retroactive rent shall
constitute “non-payment of rent” and, in such case, LMHA shall have the right to terminate this Lease and obtain possession of the premises pursuant to available legal
remedies.

    Section 4.        OTHER CHARGES
In addition to rent, the Resident is responsible for the payment of certain other charges specified in this Lease. Other charges can include:

     (a)    Maintenance Charges - The cost for service, repairs, or damages, beyond normal wear and tear, to the dwelling unit, facilities, buildings, common areas, or
grounds, caused, either intentionally or negligently, by the Resident, Resident’s household members or guests. Additionally, Resident may be charged for the labor and
material necessary to restore the premises to their original condition because of unauthorized changes made in the premises such as unusual colors of paint used or the
installation of wallpaper. Resident may be charged with the actual cost for clean up or removal of litter and garbage left in the dwelling unit, common areas or
grounds. When the Authority determines that the needed maintenance is not caused by normal wear and tear, Resident shall be charged for the cost of such
maintenance or damage, either in accordance with the Schedule of Maintenance Charges posted by the Authority or, for work not listed on the Schedule of
Maintenance Charges, based on the actual cost to the Authority for labor and materials needed to complete the work. Residents who wish to dispute maintenance costs
may use the LMHA grievance procedure.

    (b)    Excess Utility Charges - At developments where utilities are provided by the LMHA, a charge shall be assessed for excess utility consumption. This charge
does not apply to Residents who pay the utilities directly to a utility supplier.

    (c)    Any charges made under subparagraphs (a), or (b) above shall become due and collectible no earlier than fourteen (14) days following the day on which
written notice of the charge is given by LMHA to the Resident.

   (d)     The Resident will be charged, and hereby agrees to pay, a late fee of $15.00 on any rent not paid by the close of the 5th         business day of the rental
month.

    (e)    The Resident will be charged, and hereby agrees to pay $20.00 for any check returned because of insufficient funds.

    Section 5.        SECURITY DEPOSIT

    (a)    Resident Responsibilities: Resident agrees to pay an amount equal to one month’s Total Tenant Payment (TTP) or $100.00, whichever is greater, to
           LMHA at the time the Lease is executed.

           (1) Should unauthorized wallpapering or painting occur, an additional charge of $20.00 per room will be added to the security deposit and will be
           paid effective the first of the following month. Should a Resident fail an occupied housing inspection due to unsanitary housekeeping or damaging
           LMHA property, the Resident will be charged an additional $20.00 security deposit per room to protect the interest of the Authority. This charge will be
           paid effective the first of the following month.

    (b)    LMHA Responsibilities: LMHA will use the security deposit when the Lease is terminated as follows:

           (1)   to pay any rent or other charges owed by Resident at the termination of this Lease.
           (2)   to reimburse the cost of repairing any intentional or negligent damages to the dwelling unit and/or exterior grounds by Resident, Resident’s household
                 members or guests.

    (c)    The security deposit shall not be used to pay rent or other charges while Resident occupies the dwelling unit. No refund of the security deposit will be
           made until after the Resident has vacated and the Manager or designee on behalf of LMHA has inspected the dwelling unit. Return of a security
           deposit shall occur within thirty (30) days after Resident moves out providing the Resident has:

           (1)  given the required written notice of fifteen (15) days of Resident’s intent to vacate;
           (2)  paid all rental and other payments;
           (3)  left all walls, floors, windows, doors, bathroom fixtures and kitchen equipment and exterior grounds in a clean and reasonable condition on the day
                of surrender;
                 (i) In cases of unauthorized wallpapering or painting, the security deposit shall be refunded should the Resident restore the unit back to its
                original condition, with normal wear and tear excepted.
            (4) removed all rubbish and litter from the interior and exterior of the premises, removed all personal possessions from the premises;
            (5) returned all keys to LMHA and provided LMHA with Resident’s new address or forwarding address, in writing.

The LMHA agrees to return the security deposit, or part of it, to the vacating Resident after the Resident has fulfilled the requirements of 5(c). If any deductions are
made, LMHA will furnish Resident with a written explanation of said deductions.

    Section 6.        UTILITIES AND APPLIANCES

    (a)    LMHA Supplied Utilities: As part of the rent, LMHA will supply water and sewer service.

If indicated by an (X), LMHA provides the indicated utility as part of the rent for the premises:

                        ( ) Electricity   ( ) Natural Gas     ( ) Other_________

LMHA will not be liable for failure to supply utility service for any cause whatsoever beyond its control.
If indicated by an (X), LMHA shall provide the following appliances for the premises:

                        ( ) Cooking Range       ( ) Refrigerator

Other major appliances, such as air-conditioners, freezers, extra refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc. may be installed and operated only with the written approval of
LMHA. In housing complexes where washer and dryer outlets are not designed within the unit, and residents desire to install their
own personal washer and dryer instead of utilizing laundry facilities, then such installation shall be in accordance with Operating
Procedure Supplement #46. A monthly service charge will be payable by the Resident for the electricity used in the operation of such appliances, as shown on
the schedule posted in the Management Office. Charges for maintenance and repairs beyond normal wear and tear and charges for excessive utilities shall not be due
and collectible until fourteen (14) days after LMHA gives written notice of the charges. This type of notice is one of adverse action and must meet certain
requirements. The notice shall inform the Resident of the right to request a grievance hearing herein.

    (b)      Resident Paid Utilities: If a Resident resides in a development where LMHA does not supply trash collection, electricity, or natural gas, an allowance
for utilities shall be established, appropriate for the size and type of the dwelling unit, for utilities which Resident will pay directly to the utility supplier. If the
allowance for utilities exceeds the total rent payment, LMHA will pay the utility reimbursement each month. When Resident has control of the heating, Resident
agrees to maintain sufficient heat to prevent freezing of pipe water. If, for any reason, Resident is unable to maintain sufficient heat, Resident shall immediately notify
the Maintenance Department at 259-9470. Resident will be charged for any damages resulting from Resident’s failure to maintain sufficient heat or to notify
management, unless for cause beyond Resident’s control. Resident shall maintain utilities service in his name (or other adult member of the household) and shall keep
                                                                                           Should Resident fail
service in continuous operation. Resident shall be responsible for all cost of service transfer for failure to maintain a utility service.
to maintain a utility service, LMHA shall issue such Resident a thirty-(30) day notice to terminate the Lease.

                                                                                    3
    (c)    LMHA may change the allowance at any time during the term of the Lease, but shall give the Resident a sixty day (60) day notice, in writing, of the
revised allowance along with any resultant changes in Tenant Rent or utility reimbursement. If Resident’s actual utility bill exceeds the allowance for utilities,
Resident shall be responsible for paying the actual bill to the supplier. If Resident’s actual bill is less than the allowance for utilities, Resident shall receive the benefit
of such savings.

    (d)   Resident Responsibilities: Resident agrees not to waste the utilities provided by LMHA and to comply with any applicable law, regulation, or guideline
with any governmental entity regulating utilities or fuels. The Resident authorizes utility suppliers to provide LMHA with periodic data necessary to adjust utility
allowances based on rate adjustment or any other data necessary to adjust utility allowances based on rate adjustment or any other data pertinent to the adjustment,
consumption, or any other data pertinent to the adjustment. Resident further agrees to sign any authorization needed to obtain information from the utility company.


    Section 7. REDETERMINATION OF RENT, DWELLING SIZE AND ELIGIBILITY

     The rent amount, as stated in Section 3., is due each month until changed as described below.
          (1) The status of each family is to be re-examined at least once a year. At the annual
               recertification, Resident shall certify to compliance with the 8 hour per month community
               service requirement, if applicable. § 512 of the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act
               of 1998 (“QHWRA”).
          (2) Resident promises to supply LMHA, when requested, with accurate information about: family
               composition, age of family members, income and source of income of all family members,
               assets, community service activities, and related information necessary to determine eligibility,
               annual income, adjusted income, and rent. [966.4 (c)(2)]
               Failure to supply such information when requested is a serious violation of the terms of the
               lease and LMHA may terminate the lease.
               All information must be verified. Resident agrees to comply with LMHA requests for
               verification by signing releases for third-party sources, presenting documents for review, or
               providing other suitable forms of verification. [966.4 (c)(2)]
               LMHA shall give Resident reasonable notice of what actions Resident must take, and of the
               date by which any such action must be taken for compliance under this section. This
               information will be used by LMHA to decide whether the amount of the rent should be
               changed, and whether the dwelling size is still appropriate for Resident's family composition.
               This determination will be made in accordance with the Admissions and Continued
               Occupancy Policy, which is publicly posted in the Management Office. A copy of the policies
               can be furnished on request at the expense of the person making the request.
          (3) Rent will not change during the period between annual re-examinations, UNLESS during
               such period: [960.209 (b)]
               (a) A person with income joins the household.
               (b) Resident can verify a change in his/her circumstances (such as decline in or loss of
                     income) that would justify a reduction in rent, except that rent shall not be reduced
                     because a Resident’s Ohio Works First (“OWF”) grant is reduced because Resident
                     failed to comply with certain OWF requirements. [966.4 (c)]
                     If a reduction is granted, Resident must report subsequent increases in income within 10
                     calendar days of the occurrence, until the next scheduled re-examination. (Failure to
                     report within the 10 calendar days may result in a retroactive rent charge.)
               (c) If it is found that Resident has misrepresented the facts upon which the rent is based so
                     that the rent Resident is paying is less than the rent that he/she should have been
                     charged, then LMHA may apply an increase in rent retroactive to the first of the month
                     following the month in which the misrepresentation occurred.
               (d) Rent formulas or procedures are changed by Federal law or regulation.
          (4) All changes in family composition must be reported to the Housing Manager within 10 days of
               the occurrence. Failure to report within the 10 calendar days may result in a retroactive rent
               charge. [966.4 (c) (2)]
               This Lease will NOT be revised to permit a change of family composition resulting from a
               request to allow adult children to move back into the unit unless it is determined that the move
               is essential for the mental or physical health of Resident and it does not disqualify the family
               for size of unit it is currently occupying. Adult children are subject to screening criteria as
               new admissions in accordance with the Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy.
               (a) Rent Adjustments: Resident will be notified in writing of any rent adjustment due to the
               situations described above. All notices will state the effective date of the rent adjustment.
                       1. In the case of a rent decrease, the adjustment will become effective on the first day
               of the month following the reported change in circumstances, provided Resident reported and
               verified the change within 10 calendar days of the occurrence, and before the LMHA tenant
               accounting cut-off date.




                                                                                      4
                         2. In the case of a rent increase, when an increase in income occurs after a prior rent
                 reduction and is reported within 10 calendar days of the occurrence, the increase will become
                 effective the first day of the 2nd month following the month in which the change was reported.
                         3. In the case of a rent increase due to misrepresentation, failure to report a change in
                 family composition, or failure to report an increase in income (after a reduction in rent per
                 the fixed rent policy), LMHA shall apply the increase in rent retroactive to the first of the
                 month following the month in which the misrepresentation occurred.
Section 8.       TRANSFERS

(a)   Resident agrees that if LMHA determines that the size of the dwelling unit is no longer appropriate to Resident’s needs, LMHA shall send Resident written
      notice. Resident further agrees to accept a new Lease for a different dwelling unit of the appropriate size or design, and to leave the unit from which
      Resident is being moved in a clean and safe condition.
(b)   LMHA may move a Resident into another unit if it is determined necessary to rehabilitate Resident’s unit.
(c)   If a Resident makes a written request for special unit features, to alleviate verified disability or handicap problems and LMHA approves the
      request, LMHA shall have the choice to modify Resident’s existing unit or transfer to another unit with the features requested.
(d)   A Resident without disabilities or handicaps who is housed in a unit with special features must transfer to a unit without such features should a Resident
      with disabilities need the unit.
(e)   In order to make the full and best use of accessible units, a Resident with disabilities, occupying an accessible unit, may be transferred to another accessible
      unit. Transfers of this type will be made to permit occupancy of an accessible unit by another disabled person who needs the full range of features offered
      by the unit.
(f)   In the case of involuntary transfers, Resident shall be required to move into the dwelling made available by the LMHA. Resident shall be given thirty (30)
      days time in which to move following delivery of a transfer notice.
(g)   LMHA will consider any Resident request for transfers in accordance with the transfer priorities established in the LMHA’s Admissions and Continued
      Occupancy Policy and the court order in the JAIMES decision. LMHA acknowledges that it is under a duty to promote integration and that the JAIMES
      decision adopted a plan to remedy the effects of past discrimination and to assure equal housing opportunity without regard to race, color, sex or national
      origin.
(h)   LMHA may move a Resident into another unit based on threat assessment by a law enforcement agency.


Section 9.       OCCUPANCY OF THE PREMISES AND RESIDENT’S OBLIGATIONS

(a)   Use and Occupancy of Dwelling: Resident shall have the right to exclusive use and occupancy of the dwelling unit for Resident and other household
      members listed on the Lease. This provision permits reasonable accommodation of Resident’s guests for a period not exceeding fourteen (14) consecutive
      days each year. Permission may be granted, upon written request to the Manager, for an extension of this provision.
(b)   Ability to Comply with Lease Terms: If, during the term of the Lease, Resident develops a diminished capacity to care for the unit and, by reason of
      physical or mental impairment, is no longer able to comply with the material provisions of this Lease and cannot make arrangements for someone to aid him
      in complying with the terms of the Lease and LMHA is unable to make reasonable accommodations, LMHA will defer to a designated member of
      Resident’s family or some other suitable person for relocation assistance. If no such assistance is forthcoming, LMHA will provide referrals to appropriate
      agencies and will initiate action to terminate the Lease. LMHA will not assume responsibility for the actual move or moving cost. At the time of
      admission, all Residents must identify someone to be contacted in the case of an emergency.

      (1) When a household member becomes an adult at the age of eighteen, a new dwelling Lease must be executed by all adult members of the
      household within ten (10) days of the birthday.

(c)   In consideration of these rights, the Resident shall:

      (1)  Pay rent and all other rightful charges on or before the first day of each month.
      (2)  Refrain from and cause the Resident’s household members and guests to refrain from either negligently, willfully, intentionally and/or maliciously
           destroying, defacing, damaging or removing any part of the premises (including the LMHA-supplied appliances and other contents thereof) or any

household, his guest, or any other person under Resident’s control engages in any criminal activity that threatens the health,
safety or right to peaceful enjoyment of LMHA’s premises by other Residents, or employees of LMHA, or engages in any
drug-related criminal activity. LMHA maintains a zero tolerance or One Strike policy regarding criminal
activity and drug-related criminal activity.
Therefore, Resident hereby covenants and agrees as follows:

    (a)          Resident, member of his household, his guest, or any other person under Resident’s control shall neither engage in any criminal activity that threatens
                 the health, safety or right to peaceful enjoyment of LMHA’s premises by other Residents, or employees of LMHA, nor engage in any drug-related
                 criminal activity.
    (b)          It shall be refutably presumed that any individual who is listed on the Lease as a member of Resident’s household is a person who is under Resident’s
                 control; and
    (c)          It shall be refutably presumed that any person engaging in said criminal activity is a guest or a visitor of the Resident or a member of Resident’s
                 household if said criminal activity takes place on the premises.
    (d)          For the purposes of this covenant, criminal activity that threatens the health, safety or right to peaceful enjoyment of the premises by other Residents or
                 employees of LMHA, shall include, but is not limited to, any of the following:

              1)                  Domestic Violence, physical assault or the threat of physical assault to any person whatsoever;

              4)                  Robbery, burglary, auto theft, arson, and vandalism.

    (e)          For the purposes of this covenant, drug-related criminal activity means the following:

            1)      Illegal manufacture, sale, distribution, use, or possession with intent to manufacture, sell, distribute or use, of a controlled substance, or substances
                    commonly known as, but not limited to, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and opium, and further defined as in Section 102 of the Controlled Substances
                    Act (21 U.S.C. 802), unless such controlled substance or substances were obtained directly pursuant to a valid prescription or order.

    (f)          Compliance with this covenant is a material condition of this Lease for continued occupancy of the premises by the Resident, his household members
                 and guests and any breach of this covenant by Resident, his household members or guests shall be cause for termination of this Lease. LMHA may
                 terminate this tenancy without regard to whether or not any person, whose conduct is an issue, has been arrested, charged, or convicted by law.
    (g)          For the purposes of this covenant, it shall be conclusively presumed that a breach hereof constitutes a serious and clear danger to the health or safety of
                 other Residents or employees of LMHA.

                 other adult person having his care, custody or control, except if said minor person is on an emergency errand for a parent, guardian or one in custodial
                 care, or is returning directly home from employment or other activities specifically authorized by said minor’s parent, guardian or other adult person
                 having his care, custody, or control. Further, if any Resident, being the parent, guardian, or adult person having the care, custody, or control of a person
                 under the age of eighteen (18) years, shall suffer or, by ineffective control, allow such person to violate the curfew, said Resident shall be considered to
                 have violated his Lease and this Lease shall be subject to termination. There will be a violation of this paragraph (h) if a child under eleven (11) years of

              generated by an installation within the exclusive control of the Resident and supplied by a direct utility connection; and

     (8) (i) To notify the Resident of the specific grounds for any proposed adverse action by LMHA. (Such adverse action includes, but is not limited to, a proposed

               proposed adverse action:

                      Lease termination in accordance with Code of Federal Regulations §966.4(l) (3) shall constitute adequate notice of proposed adverse action.

              (B)     In the case of a proposed adverse action, other than a proposed Lease termination based on criminal activity that threatens the health, safety or right
                      to peaceful enjoyment of LMHA’s premises by other Residents or employees of LMHA, or is drug-related, LMHA shall not take the proposed
                      action until the time for the Resident to request a grievance hearing has expired, and (if a hearing was timely requested by the Resident) the
                      grievance process has been completed.

        At the request of Resident, proper identification of employment with LMHA shall be furnished to the Resident prior to entry upon premises. When the
        Resident calls to request maintenance on the unit, LMHA shall attempt to provide such maintenance at a time convenient to Resident. If Resident is absent

          (9)    Possession and/or use of illegal weapons or illegal drugs found in or seized in an LMHA unit by law enforcement officers.

          (10)   Any fire on LMHA premises caused by carelessness, failure to supervise children or unattended cooking.

    (b)   LMHA shall give written notice of the proposed termination of the Lease of:

          (1)    Fourteen (14) days in case of failure to pay rent.

          (2)    Three (3) days but not more than thirty (30) days when the health and safety of the Resident and/or its family, other Residents or LMHA staff is
                 threatened or in the case of criminal activity.

          (3)    Thirty (30) days in any other case.

    (c)   The notice of termination:

          (1)    The notice of termination to the Resident shall State specific reason for the termination and shall inform Resident of his right to process a grievance
                 except no grievance is permitted when the violation pertains to criminal activity or drug-related criminal activity, but the Resident will be afforded a
                 private conference with a representative of LMHA and can only be evicted by judicial proceedings in State Court.

          (2)    Any notice to leave the premises (Ohio Revised Code §1923) which is required by State Law may be combined with, or run concurrently with, the
                 Notice of Lease termination under this section. If an eviction action is filed, the Resident will be charged with court costs, as a party to the lawsuit, if
                 Resident loses the suit or consents to a judgment.




                                                                                     8
      (d)   Resident may terminate this Lease at any time by giving a fifteen (15) day notice to LMHA in writing as described in Section 14.

      (e)   In deciding to evict for criminal activity, LMHA shall have discretion to consider all of the circumstances of the case, including the seriousness of the
            offense, the extent of participation by family members, and the effects that the eviction would have on family members not involved in the proscribed
            activity. In appropriate cases, LMHA may permit continued occupancy by remaining family members and may impose a condition that family members
            who engaged in the proscribed activity will not reside in the unit. LMHA may require a family member who has engaged in illegal use of drugs to present
            credible evidence of successful completion of a treatment program as a condition of being allowed to reside in the unit.

      (f)   When LMHA evicts an individual or family from a dwelling unit for engaging in criminal activity, including drug-related criminal activity, LMHA shall
            notify the local post office serving that dwelling unit that such individual or family is no longer residing in the dwelling unit (so that the post office will
            terminate the delivery of mail for such persons at the unit, and that such persons not return to LMHA premises for pick-up of the mail).

      Section 16.      WAIVER
No delay or failure by LMHA in exercising any right under this Lease agreement, and no partial or single exercise of such right, shall constitute a waiver (post or
prospective) of that or any other right unless otherwise expressly provided herein.

      Section 17.      DEFECTS HAZARDOUS TO LIFE, HEALTH OR SAFETY
In the event that the dwelling unit is damaged to the extent that conditions are created which are hazardous to the life, health or safety of the occupants, the LMHA
responsibilities are:

      (a)   Repair of the unit within a reasonable period of time after receiving notice from Resident, provided, if the damage was caused by the Resident, household
            members or guests, the reasonable cost of the repairs shall be charged to the Resident. The LMHA shall refer Resident to a replacement dwelling unit, if
            available, if necessary repairs cannot be made within a reasonable time. The Resident shall accept any replacement unit offered by the LMHA.

      (b)   In the event Resident refuses to occupy any replacement unit, Resident may live elsewhere, but LMHA will not be responsible to provide a separate
            location. In the event repairs cannot be made by the LMHA, as described above, and alternative accommodations are unavailable, then rent shall abate in
            proportion to the seriousness of the damage and loss in value as a dwelling. No abatement of rent occurs if Resident rejects alternative accommodations.

            If the LMHA determines that the dwelling unit is not habitable because of imminent danger to the life, health and safety of the Resident, and Resident
            refuses to live elsewhere in alternative accommodations, then this Lease shall terminate in accordance with legal procedures and any rent paid will be
            refunded to the Resident.

      (c)   Resident responsibilities shall include immediate notification to the Housing Manager of the damage and intent to abate rent, when the damage is or
            becomes sufficiently severe that Resident believes he/she is justified in abating rent.

      (d)   Resident agrees to continue to pay full rent, except the abated portion agreed upon by the LMHA, during the time in which the defect remains uncorrected.
            If the Resident and LMHA are unable to agree as to abatement, the Resident shall be obligated to comply with the rent escrow provisions of the Ohio
            Revised Code Section 5321.07 et. seq.

      (e)   The Resident shall be responsible for fire damage to the unit, which was caused by Resident’s appliance, device, or other personal property. It is a
            serious violation of the Lease if Resident’s appliance, device or other personal property caused the fire.

      Section 18.      GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

Resident shall have a right to file a grievance if a dispute arises with respect to LMHA action or failure to act in accordance with the Lease or LMHA regulations,
which adversely affect the Resident’s rights, duties, welfare, or status. Resident shall not be entitled to file a grievance in cases involving any activity, not just a
criminal activity, that threatens the health, safety, or right to peaceful enjoyment of the premises by other residents or employees of LMHA; or any drug related
criminal activity.

All grievance or appeals arising under this Lease shall be processed and resolved pursuant to the grievance procedure of LMHA which is in effect at the time such
grievance or appeal arises, which procedure is posted in the Central Office and incorporated herein by reference. It is suggested that Resident escrow rent with
LMHA’s Central Office when requesting grievance hearings on other than non-payment of rent cases.
