Resident; whereupon this Lease shall end. Any notice provided in this Section

Resident's failure to cure any default within the time permitted as set forth in
Section 21 hereof, may at Management's option enter upon and rent the Property
at the best price obtainable by reasonable effort, without advertisement and by
private negotiations and for any term Management deems proper. Resident shall
be liable to Management for the deficiency, if any, between Resident's Total
Rental hereunder and the price obtained by Management and all other
reasonable costs directly related to reletting, including, but not limited to the
payment of commissions, the making of alteration, costs of leasing same, costs

       No termination of this Lease prior to the normal ending thereof, by lapse of
time or otherwise, shall affect Management's right to collect Base Rental,
Additional Rental and any other charges due Management by Resident.

       Resident’s termination of this Lease shall not affect Resident’s obligation
to pay the Total Rental due hereunder, unless said termination is allowed under
Section 22.

27. CURRENT AND CONTINUING SUBORDINATION OF LEASE

       Resident agrees that at the option of Management, this Lease is and shall
continue to remain junior and subordinate to other obligations secured by the
Property, regardless of whether said obligation is of record, and regardless of
whether said obligation exists as of the Effective Date or is created in the future
at any time. Resident waives and relinquishes any and all rights in and to the
Property and all claims against Management and/or Owner on the basis of the
superiority of this Lease to any other obligation.

       The parties stipulate that default, delinquency or breach of any obligation
secured by the Property shall not constitute waiver of Resident’s responsibilities
to pay the Total Rental. The parties further stipulate that default, delinquency or
breach of any obligation secured by the Property shall not entitle Resident to a
refund of any Rent already paid.

28. NO ESTATE IN LAND

      This Lease shall create the relationship of Landlord and Tenant between
the parties hereto; no estate shall pass out of Owner or Management. Resident
has only a usufruct, not subject to levy and sale, and not assignable by Resident
except by Management’s prior written consent.

29. ATTORNEY’S FEES
       29.1 If any Rent owing under this Lease is collected by or through an
attorney at law, or if Management employs an attorney at law to enforce any of
the other terms or conditions of this Lease, Resident agrees to pay or reimburse
Management for all costs and expenses actually incurred by Management,
including reasonable attorneys' fees, as Additional Rental hereunder. Resident,
for himself and his family, waives all homestead rights and exemptions which he
may have under any law as against any obligation owing under this Lease.
Resident hereby assigns to Management Resident’s homestead rights and
exemptions, if any.

       29.2 Resident hereby waives any objection to jurisdiction or venue being
exercised by, or present in the courts of [NAMES OF LOCAL/STATE COURTS],
or the federal district court of the [NAME OF FEDERAL COURT DISTRICT].
Notwithstanding anything in section 31, infra, in the event Resident fails to
maintain residence or occupancy at the Property, Resident agrees that all
papers, summons, complaints, and notices may be served on the
[GOVERNMENTAL BODY SUCH AS SECRETARY OF STATE], as Resident’s
duly appointed agent for service of process.

        29.3 Resident agrees that Management shall have the exclusive right, but
not the obligation, to require that disputes hereunder be submitted to binding
arbitration. All fees associated with submission of a dispute to binding arbitration
shall initially be borne by the filing party, and shall ultimately be paid as
determined by the findings of the arbitrator.

       29.4 If a court of competent jurisdiction finds that Management has
breached this lease, and that such breach has damaged Resident, Resident shall
be entitled to recovery of reasonable attorney’s fees from Management.

30. RIGHTS CUMULATIVE

shall be cumulative but not restrictive to those given by law.

made by attaching the same on the main entrance to the Property and mailed to
the Property. A copy of all notices under this Lease shall also be sent to such
other address as Resident may from time to time designate in writing to
Management. Resident expressly waives any right to personal service or the
right to challenge the existence of jurisdiction or validity of any money judgment
entered upon default which has followed service pursuant to this Section.

32. HOLDING OVER

       Resident shall promptly vacate the Property and remove all of Resident’s
goods and property therefrom after termination of this Lease, whether such
termination occurs by lapse of time or otherwise. Any holding over or occupancy
of the Property by Resident after the expiration of this Lease without the express
written consent of the Management shall create a tenancy of sufferance and not
a tenancy at will. There shall be no renewal of this Lease by operation of law.

35. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

       In all instances where Resident is required by the terms and provisions of
this Lease to pay any sum or to do any act at a particular indicated time or within
any particular period, it is understood and agreed that time is of the essence.

36. TRANSFER OF MANAGEMENT’S INTEREST

        In the event of the sale, assignment or transfer by Management of its
interest in the Property or in this Lease (other than a collateral assignment to
secure a debt of Management) to a successor in the interest who expressly
assumes the obligations of Management hereunder, Management shall
thereupon be released or discharged from all of its covenants and obligations
hereunder; and Resident agrees to look solely to such successor in interest of
Management for performance of such obligations. Any deposits or other security
given by Resident to Management to secure performance of Resident's
obligations hereunder may be assigned by Management to such successor in
interest of Management; and, upon acknowledgment by such successor of
receipt of such security and its express assumption of the obligation to this
Lease, Management's assignment of the Lease or of any or all of its rights herein
shall in no manner affect Resident s obligations hereunder. Resident shall

       Within THIRTY (30) days after request therefor by Management or any
holder of any security instrument covering the Property, or upon any sale,
assignment or other transfer of the Property by Management, Resident shall
deliver in recordable form an estoppel certificate in form and substance
satisfactory to Management, to any proposed security instrument holder or other
transferee, or to Management, certifying those facts contained therein that are
then true with respect to this Lease and specifying with particularly any such
facts which are not then true with respect to this Lease.

38. PETS

      Resident agrees to be liable for any and all damage to the Property or to
any person caused by any pets or other animals on the Property.

       Pets are strictly prohibited in the Property unless Resident is given prior

of nonperformance hereunder. In order to induce Management to enter into this
Lease with Resident, [NAME(S) OF COSIGNOR(S)] (hereinafter “Non-Resident
Guarantor”) hereby agrees that he/she/they will be jointly and severally liable, in
his/her/their personal capacity, for any breach, default, nonperformance, loss or
damages associated with this Lease which is attributable to Resident. In the
event of such breach, default, nonperformance, loss, or damages, Non-Resident
Guarantor(s) acknowledge(s) that Management may bring suit against
him/her/them individually regardless of whether it has brought suit or intends to
bring suit against Resident. Non-Resident Guarantor(s) understand(s) that
he/she/they is/are afforded no rights to the Property under this Lease and that
the provisions of this Section exist solely to secure the risk to Management that

       40.1 This Lease contains the entire agreement of the parties hereto and

between the parties, not embodied herein unless contained in a modification in
writing executed by all of the parties hereto, shall be of any force or effect.

       40.2 This Lease may be executed in counterparts, and each counterpart,
and all counterparts together, shall constitute the original Lease.
       40.3 No waiver of any default shall be implied from Management’s
omission to take any action on account of such default if such default persists or
is repeated, and no express waiver shall affect any default other than the default
specified in the express waiver and that only for the time and to the extent therein
stated. One or more waivers by Management shall not be construed as a waiver
of subsequent breach of the same covenant, term or condition.

       40.4 Management and Resident stipulate that Resident shall at no time
record or cause to be recorded this Lease or any document referring to this
Lease or to Resident’s rights under this Lease. Resident’s recording of this
Lease or any document referring to this Lease (whether said reference is direct
or by implication) shall constitute breach of this Lease by Resident with damages
to Management equal to the Total Rental.

        40.5 The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Lease shall
not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Lease, which
shall remain in full force and effect.

       40.6 Each person executing or attesting this Lease warrants and
represents that he or she is fully authorized to do so. Each person also
stipulates that he or she has been afforded an adequate opportunity to read this
Lease and to consult with an attorney prior to executing the same, and that all
signatures are given knowingly, voluntarily, and with full awareness of the terms
contained herein. The parties also agree that this Lease has been prepared after
negotiations and, as a result, neither party may be considered the sole author
thereof, and it should not be construed in favor or against either party by a court
of competent jurisdiction.

       40.7   All references to monetary sums are expressed in U.S. Dollars.

        40.8 Resident agrees not to place or use on the Property, or allow to be

and relinquishes any and all claims against Management for said removal and
disposal.

       40.10 Resident shall not deposit any non-liquid substance in any sink.
Resident shall not deposit anything other than human waste and toilet tissue in
any commode. If the Property has a septic tank, Resident must regularly use

40.SUBJECT TO MANAGEMENT’S APPROVAL

that Management’s approval of Resident is based in part on Resident’s credit
worthiness, and Management’s approval of Resident is not on a first-come basis.
