C. Purchaser shall have the right to have its title examination and Survey updated until the Closing Date (hereinafter defined), and if any such update discloses any new title exceptions or survey matters as to which Purchaser has an objection and which were not of record as of the effective date of the Commitment, as to title matters, or which were not shown on the Survey, as to survey matters (any such new matter being referred to as a “New Objection”), Purchaser shall deliver to Seller a statement of any such New Objections and Seller shall have until the Closing Date to cure all such New Objections. In the event that Seller fails to cure such New Objections on or before the Closing Date and provided that such New Objection was created by Seller after the Effective Date , (i) Purchaser may terminate this Agreement by written notice to Seller given on or before the Closing Date, whereupon Purchaser shall receive a full refund of so much of the Deposit as is then held by Escrow Agent, and thereafter this Agreement shall be null and void and of no further force or effect, and neither Purchaser nor Seller shall have any further rights, duties, liabilities or obligations to the other by reason hereof except for the Inspection Indemnity, or (ii)  if such New Objection may be cured by the payment of a liquidated amount of money, Purchaser may cure such New Objections and deduct the reasonable cost thereof from the Purchase Price otherwise payable by Purchaser at Closing. Seller agrees not to convey or encumber title to the Land after the Effective Date or to enter into a lease of all or any portion of the Land after the Effective Date.

This Section IX A shall survive the Closing of the transaction contemplated herein or any other termination of this Agreement.

If any of the foregoing conditions have not been satisfied or performed on or as of the Closing Date, Purchaser shall have the right, at Purchaser’s option, either (i) to terminate this Agreement by giving written notice to Seller on or before the Closing Date, in which event all rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement shall expire, and this Agreement shall become null and void except for the Inspection Indemnity, or (ii) if such failure of condition constitutes a default by Seller under Section XII B of this Agreement, to exercise such rights and remedies specified in Section XII B. In the event Purchaser exercises item (i) of the foregoing sentence, the Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser immediately upon request.

Roberts shall have no personal liability whatsoever respecting of any Seller’s representations, warranties or covenants or the transaction contemplated in this Agreement.

 

At the Closing, Seller shall execute and deliver a “Bring-Down Certificate” with respect to the representations and warranties made by Seller in this Article XI stating either that such representations and warranties remain true and correct in all material respects as of the Closing Date or stating any of such representations and warranties which are no longer true and correct in all material respects as of the Closing Date. In the event that Seller’s Bring-Down Certificate specifies that any of Seller’s representations and warranties are no longer true and correct as of the Closing Date in any material respect, (i) if the representation and warranty has changed from the Effective Date to the Closing Date not as a result of a default by Seller under this Agreement, Purchaser’s only rights in respect to such change in representation and warranty shall be to either (a) waive such change and close and consummate the transaction contemplated herein without reduction of the Purchase Price, or (b) terminate this Agreement and receive a refund of the Deposit, after which this Agreement shall be null and void and of no further force or effect and neither Seller nor Purchaser shall have any further rights, duties, liabilities or obligations to the other hereunder except for the Inspection Indemnity; or (ii) if the change in such representation and warranty arises because of Seller’s default under this Agreement, Purchaser shall have its rights and remedies specified in Section XII B hereof.

 

Anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, the representations and warranties of Seller contained in this Article X shall not survive the Closing and shall be merged into the Deed.

 

ARTICLE XII -- DEFAULT AND REMEDIES

 

A. In the event that the transaction contemplated herein is not closed and consummated because of Purchaser’s failure or breach to perform its obligations hereunder, as Seller’s sole remedy Escrow Agent shall pay the Deposit to Seller as Seller’s liquidated damages, and not as a penalty, it being otherwise difficult or impossible to determine Seller’s actual damages. Seller and Purchaser acknowledge that it is impossible to estimate the actual damages Seller would suffer from Purchaser’s breach of this Agreement, but that the liquidated damages provided herein represent a reasonable pre-estimate of such damages and Seller and Purchaser therefore intend to provide for liquidated damages as herein specified, and that the agreed upon liquidated damages are not punitive or penalties and are just, fair and reasonable, all in accordance with O.C.G.A. §13‒6‒7. The foregoing sentence shall in no form or fashion affect Seller’s rights and remedies against Purchaser in connection with the Inspection Indemnity.

 

13
 

B. In the event that the transaction contemplated herein is not closed and consummated because of Seller’s failure or breach to perform its obligations hereunder, Purchaser shall have the right only (i) to terminate this Agreement by giving notice thereof to Seller and Escrow Agent, and upon receipt of such notice Escrow Agent shall return so much of the Deposit as is then held by Escrow Agent to Purchaser and thereafter this Agreement shall terminate and be null and void and of no further force or effect, and neither Seller nor Purchaser shall have any further rights, duties, liabilities or obligations to the other hereunder except for the Inspection Indemnity, or (ii) to sue Seller for specific performance of Seller’s obligations under this Agreement; which remedies specified in (i) and (ii) shall be in lieu of any other rights or remedies for Purchaser, including, without limitation, any right or claim for damages; provided, however, in the event that the remedy of specific performance is not available to Purchaser because Seller has voluntarily conveyed the Property after the date of this Agreement, Purchaser shall have the right to sue Seller for the damages occasioned thereby to Purchaser. If Purchaser consummates the transaction contemplated in this Agreement it shall be conclusively deemed to have waived any breach by Seller of any covenant, representation or warranty under this Agreement (but not under any of the documents executed at Closing which shall continue in accordance with their terms) which the Purchaser knew or should have known existed prior to the Closing.

I. No failure of any party to exercise any power given such party hereunder or to insist upon strict compliance by any other party to its obligations hereunder, and no custom or practice of the parties in variance with the terms hereof, shall constitute a waiver of any party’s right to demand exact compliance with the terms hereof.
