SECTION 1.2 INSPECTION AND DELIVERY OF PREMISES, CONSTRUCTION OF LEASE SPACE IMPROVEMENTS AND POSSESSION.

1.201
Delivery. Tenant hereby accepts delivery of the Premises. Tenant acknowledges that Tenant has inspected the Premises and the Common Areas (hereinafter defined) and, and hereby (i) accepts the Common Areas in “AS IS” condition, and (ii) subject to Landlord's completion of its obligations under the Work Letter, Tenant hereby accepts the Premises (including the suitability of the Premises for the Permitted Use) for all purposes.

1.202

SECTION 1.3 REDELIVERY OF THE PREMISES.
  
1.301
Obligation to Redeliver. Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease or upon the exercise by Landlord of its right to re-enter the Premises without terminating this Lease pursuant to Article 13 herein, Tenant shall immediately deliver to Landlord the Premises free of offensive odors and in a safe, clean, neat, sanitary and operational condition, together with all keys, access cards and other forms of entry devices. Tenant shall, by the Expiration Date or, if this Lease is earlier terminated, within seven (7) days after the termination, at the sole expense of Tenant: (i) remove from the Premises (unless Landlord is asserting its lien rights therein) any equipment, machinery, trade fixtures and personality installed or placed in the Premises by or on behalf of Tenant and (ii) if requested by Landlord, (a) remove from the Premises all or any part of the improvements (other than Tenant's Improvements and other improvements approved by Landlord without the requirement that same be removed upon expiration or earlier termination of the Lease [such notice of Landlord’s requirement of removal upon expiration of this Lease to be provided by Landlord at the time said improvements are made]) made to the Premises by or on behalf of Tenant and (b) restore the Premises to the condition existing immediately prior to the installation of such improvements, ordinary wear and tear excepted. All removals and work described above shall be accomplished in a good and workmanlike manner and shall be conducted so as not to damage the Premises or the Building or the plumbing, electrical lines or other utilities serving the Building. Tenant shall, at its expense, promptly repair any damage caused by any such removal or work. If Tenant fails to deliver the Premises in the condition aforesaid, then Landlord may restore the Premises to such a condition at Tenant's expense. All property required to be removed pursuant to this Section not removed within time period required hereunder shall thereupon be conclusively presumed to have been abandoned by Tenant and Landlord may, at its option, take over possession of such property and either (a) declare the same to be the property of Landlord by written notice to Tenant at the address provided herein or (b) at the sole cost and expense of Tenant, remove and store and/or dispose of the same or any part thereof in any manner that Landlord shall choose without incurring liability to Tenant or any other person.

Failure to Deliver. Notwithstanding any provision or inference to the contrary herein contained, in the event that Tenant fails to deliver to Landlord (and surrender possession of) all of the Premises upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease (or the applicable portion of the Premises if this Lease expires or terminates as to only a portion of the Premises) on the date of expiration or earlier termination, then Landlord may, without judicial process and without notice of any kind, immediately enter upon and take absolute possession of the Premises or applicable portion thereof, expel or remove Tenant and any other person or entity who may be occupying the Premises or applicable portion thereof, change the locks to the Premises or applicable portion thereof (in which event, Tenant shall have no right to any key for the new locks), limit elevator access to the Premises or applicable portion thereof, and take any other actions as are necessary for Landlord to take absolute possession of the Premises or applicable portion thereof. The foregoing rights are without prejudice and in addition to, and shall not in any way limit Landlord's rights under, Section 1.4 below.

SECTION 1.4 HOLDING OVER. In the event Tenant or any party under Tenant claiming rights to this Lease, retains possession of the Premises after the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, such possession shall constitute and be construed as a tenancy at will only, subject, however, to all of the terms, provisions, covenants and agreements on the part of Tenant hereunder; such parties shall be subject to immediate eviction and removal and Tenant or any such party shall pay Landlord as rent for the period of such holdover an amount equal to one and one-half (1.5) times the Basic Annual Rent in effect immediately preceding expiration or termination, as applicable, prorated on a daily basis. Tenant shall also pay any and all damages sustained by Landlord as a result of such holdover. The rent during such holdover period shall be payable to Landlord from time to time on demand; provided, however, if no demand is made during a particular month, holdover rent accruing during such month shall be paid in accordance with the provisions of Article 2. Tenant will vacate the Premises and deliver same to Landlord immediately upon Tenant's receipt of notice from Landlord to so vacate. No holding over by Tenant, whether with or without consent of Landlord, shall operate to extend the term of this Lease; no payments of money by Tenant to Landlord after the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease shall reinstate, continue or extend the term of this Lease; and no extension of this Lease after the expiration or earlier termination thereof shall be valid unless and until the same shall be reduced to writing and signed by both Landlord and Tenant. If Landlord elects to cause Tenant to be ejected from the Premises through judicial process, and without in any way limiting Landlord's rights under subsection 1.302 above, Tenant agrees that Landlord will not be required to deliver Tenant more than one (1) days' notice to vacate prior to Landlord's filing of a forcible detainer suit. In addition, Tenant agrees that Landlord shall be entitled to the payment of its reasonable legal fees and administrative expenses in the event that Landlord prevails in a forcible detainer action brought by Landlord.
 
ARTICLE 2
RENT

SECTION 2.1 BASIC RENT. Tenant shall pay as annual rent for the Premises the applicable Basic Annual Rent shown in Item 4 of the Basic Lease Provisions. The Basic Annual Rent shall be payable in monthly installments equal to the applicable Basic Monthly Rent shown in Item 4 of the Basic Lease Provisions in advance, without demand; offset or deduction, which monthly installments shall commence on the Commencement Date and shall continue on the first (1st) day of each calendar month thereafter. If the Commencement Date occurs on a day other than the first day of a calendar month or the Expiration Date occurs on a day other than the last day of a calendar month, the Basic Monthly Rent for such partial month shall be prorated.

SECTION 2.2 RENT DEFINED. Basic Annual Rent and all other sums (whether or not expressly designated as rent) required to be paid to Landlord by Tenant under this Lease (including, without limitation, any sums payable to Landlord under any addendum, exhibit, rider or schedule attached hereto) shall constitute rent and are sometimes collectively referred to as "Rent". Each payment of Rent shall be paid by Tenant when due, without prior demand therefore and without deduction or setoff.

SECTION 2.3 LATE CHARGES. If any installment of Basic Annual Rent or any other payment of Rent under this Lease shall not be paid within five (5) days of when due, a "Late Charge" of five cents ($.05) per dollar so overdue may be charged by Landlord to defray Landlord's administrative expense incident to the handling of such overdue payments.  In the event Tenant’s payment of Rent is postdated by the United States Postal Service prior to the expiration of such five (5) day period, the Late Charge shall not be imposed.  Each Late Charge shall be payable on demand.  Provided, however, any such Late Charge shall not be payable with respect to the first such delinquent item of Rent during each Lease Year (provided that such delinquent item of Rent is actually received by Landlord no later than five (5)

business days after its due date), it being understood that said Late Charge shall apply to the second and any subsequent delinquent payment of Rent during each Lease Year.
 
Tenant will pay Landlord on the date this Lease is executed by Tenant the Security Deposit set forth in Item 9 of the Basic Lease Provisions as security for the performance of the terms hereof by Tenant. Tenant shall not be entitled to interest thereon and Landlord may commingle such Security Deposit with any other funds of Landlord. The Security Deposit shall not be considered an advance payment of rent or a measure of Landlord's damages in case of default by Tenant. If Tenant defaults with respect to any provision of this Lease, Landlord may, but shall not be required to, from time to time, without prejudice to any other remedy, use, apply or retain all or any part of this Security Deposit for the payment of any Rent or any other sum in default or for the payment of any other amount which Landlord may spend or become obligated to spend by reason of Tenant's default or to compensate Landlord for any other loss or damage which Landlord may suffer by reason of Tenant's default, including, without limitation, costs and attorneys' fees incurred by Landlord to recover possession of the Premises. If any or all of such Security Deposit is so used by Landlord, Tenant agrees promptly following demand by Landlord to restore such Security Deposit. If Tenant shall fully and faithfully perform every provision of this Lease to be performed by it, the Security Deposit shall be returned to Tenant within thirty (30) days after the Expiration Date. Tenant agrees that it will not assign or encumber or attempt to assign or encumber the monies deposited herein as the Security Deposit and that Landlord and its successors and assigns shall not be bound by any such actual or attempted assignment or encumbrance.  Regardless of any assignment of this Lease by Tenant, Landlord may return the Security Deposit to the original Tenant, in the absence of evidence satisfactory to Landlord of an assignment of the right to receive the Security Deposit or any part of the balance thereof.

Tenant will pay Landlord on the date this Lease is executed by Tenant the Advance Rent set forth in Item 8 of the Basic Lease Provisions as security for the performance by Tenant of all obligations imposed under this Lease which Tenant is required to perform prior to the commencement of the term and during the Abatement Period.  If Tenant shall fail to perform such obligations, Landlord shall be entitled to apply this Advance Rent, pro tanto, against any damages which it may sustain by reason of Tenant’s failure to perform such obligations, but such application shall not preclude Landlord from recovering greater damages if the same can be established.  Otherwise, if Tenant shall faithfully perform all such obligations, then the Advance Rent shall be applied, pro tanto, by Landlord against the Basic Rent first becoming due hereunder, which is Month 7 as provided in Item 4(a) of the Basic Lease Provisions.  No right or remedy available to Landlord as provided in this paragraph shall preclude or extinguish any other right or remedy to which Landlord may be entitled.

Payment by Tenant of any such rate increase shall not be a waiver of Tenant's duty to comply herewith. Tenant shall keep the Premises neat and clean at all times. Tenant shall comply with, and promptly correct any violation of, each and every governmental law, rule or regulation relating to the Premises.

ARTICLE 11
SUBLETTING AND ASSIGNING

or corporation or any combination thereof, other than Tenant (each a “Transfer”), without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, so long as Tenant is not then in default hereunder, Tenant shall have the right, without the consent or approval of Landlord (but after notice to Landlord) to assign, sublease or otherwise transfer its interest in this Lease (a) to any corporation, joint venture, partnership or other entity which is a successor to Tenant resulting from a merger or consolidation, (b) to a purchaser of all or substantially all of Tenant’s stocks and/or assets as a going concern, or (c) to a corporation, joint venture, partnership or other entity which shall directly or indirectly control, be under the control of, or be under common control with, Tenant (collectively, “Permitted Transferee”).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, such Permitted Transferee must have a net worth equal to or greater than Tenant’s net worth at the execution of this Lease.  For purposes hereof, “control” shall be deemed to mean the direct or indirect ownership of more than fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding voting stock of a corporation or other majority equity and control interest if not a corporation.  Tenant must (a) notify Landlord in writing of the name of the proposed assignee within fifteen (15) days of actual assignment or sublease with such Permitted Transferee agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth herein and shall fully assume all of the obligations and liabilities imposed upon Tenant hereunder, and (b) upon Landlord’s request, Tenant and the Permitted Transferee shall execute such documents as reasonably requested by Landlord to evidence such assignment or sublease. In no event shall any assignment or sublease ever release Tenant from any obligation or liability hereunder. Without limiting Landlord's consent rights and as a condition to obtaining Landlord's consent, (i) each assignee must assume all obligations under this Lease and (ii) each sublessee must confirm that its sublease is subject and subordinate to this Lease. In addition, each assignee and sublessee shall agree to cause the Premises to comply at all times with all requirements of the Disability Acts (as amended), including, but not limited to, obligations arising out of or associated with such assignee's or subtenant's use of or activities or business operations conducted within the Premises. No assignee or sublessee of the Premises or any portion thereof may assign or sublet the Premises or any portion thereof. Consent by Landlord to one or more assignments or sublettings shall not operate as a waiver of Landlord's rights as to any subsequent assignments and/or sublettings. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a copy of each assignment or sublease entered into by Tenant promptly after the execution thereof, whether or not Landlord's consent is required in connection therewith. Any assignment made by Tenant shall be in recordable form and shall contain a covenant of assumption by the assignee running to Landlord. All reasonable legal fees and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with any assignment or sublease proposed by Tenant will be the responsibility of Tenant and will be paid by Tenant within five (5) days of receipt of an invoice from Landlord. In addition, Tenant will pay to Landlord an administrative overhead fee of $500.00 in consideration for Landlord's review of any requested assignment or sublease.
 
SECTION 11.2 LANDLORD'S RIGHTS.

11.201

the business to be conducted in the Premises, (d) a current balance sheet and income statement for such proposed subtenant or assignee, (e) a copy of the proposed form of sublease or assignment, and (f) such other information as Landlord may reasonably request (collectively, the “Required Information”).

(b)  
Landlord shall, within fifteen (15) days after Landlord's receipt of the Required Information deliver to Tenant a written notice (each such notice, a "Landlord Response") in which Landlord either (i) terminates this Lease, if Tenant desires to sublease all of the Premises or assign this Lease, (ii) terminates this Lease only as to the Proposed Sublease Space, if the Proposed Sublease Space is less than the entire Premises, (iii) consents to the proposed sublease or assignment, or (iv) withholds its consent to the proposed sublease or assignment, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld so long as Landlord does not elect to terminate this Lease under subparts (i) or (ii) above and so long as Landlord has received all Required Information. Landlord shall be deemed to have reasonably withheld its consent to any sublease or assignment if the refusal is based on (i) Landlord's determination (in its sole discretion) that such subtenant or assignee is not of the character or quality of a tenant to whom Landlord would generally lease space of the Building, (ii) the fact that such sublease or assignment is not in form and of substance reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, (iii) such sublease or assignment conflicts in any manner with this Lease, including, but not limited to, the Permitted Use under Item 11 of the Basic Lease Provisions or Section 4.1 of the Supplemental Lease Provisions, (iv) the proposed subtenant or assignee is a governmental entity or a medical office, (v) the proposed subtenant's or assignee's primary business is prohibited by any non-compete clause then affecting the Building, (vi) the proposed subtenant or assignee is a tenant of the Building or Landlord is negotiating with the proposed subtenant or assignee to become a tenant of the Building, (vii) the population density of the proposed subtenant or assignee within the Premises will exceed the general population density of other tenants in the Building, (viii) the character of the business to be conducted within the Premises by the proposed subtenant or assignee is likely to substantially increase the expenses or costs or providing Building services, or the burden on parking, existing janitorial services or elevators in the Building, (ix) the sublease or assignment would cause Landlord to breach any recorded covenants or contractual obligations to which the Building, Project or Landlord is subject or (x) such sublessee or assignee has a net worth less than that of Tenant at the time Tenant submits the Required Information.

(c)  
If Landlord does not timely exercise its termination right with respect to the proposed sublease or assignment within the required fifteen (15) day period, then Landlord shall be deemed to have waived its right to terminate this Lease with respect to the applicable assignment or sublease, but Landlord shall have the right to consent or withhold its consent to the applicable proposed assignment or sublease, by delivering written notice thereof to Tenant within such fifteen (15) day period. If Landlord does not exercise its right to consent or withhold its consent in respect of a proposed assignment or sublease within the required fifteen (15) day period, then Landlord shall be deemed to have withheld its consent to the proposed assignment or sublease.
 
11.202
Effect of Termination. If Landlord timely exercises its option to terminate this Lease as to the entire Premises as provided in subsection 11.201, then this Lease shall terminate on a date specified by Landlord in the Landlord Response (the "Specified Termination Date"), which Specified Termination Date shall not be sooner than 30 days after the date of Landlord's
   
 
Lease Agreement - 24
Execution Copy 4/12/12

 
   
 
Response, nor later than 90 days after the date of Landlord's Response, and the Basic Rent shall be paid and apportioned to the Specified Termination Date. If Landlord timely exercises its option to terminate this Lease as to only the Proposed Sublease Space, then (i) this Lease shall end and expire with respect to the Proposed Sublease Space on the applicable Specified Termination Date, (ii) from and after the applicable Specified Termination Date, the Basic Rent shall be reduced by the amount of Basic Rent that was being paid in respect of the Proposed Sublease Space as of the applicable Specified Termination Date, and (iii) if the Proposed Sublease Space adjoins another portion of the Premises, Tenant shall, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, construct and finish such demising walls as are necessary to physically separate the Premises from the Proposed Sublease Space, and (v) if the Proposed Sublease Space is part of a floor which is fully included in the Premises, then Landlord shall have the right, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, (a) to construct and finish in accordance with Building standards or to cause Tenant to construct and finish in accordance with Building standards such demising walls as are necessary (x) to construct a public corridor so as to convert the floor to a multi-tenant floor and (y) to convert the restrooms on such floor (including access thereto) to restrooms which will serve the entire floor, as opposed to only the Premises, and (b) to make such revisions, if any, are necessary, to properly light, heat, cool and ventilate the public corridor and public restrooms. The alterations performed by Tenant pursuant to this paragraph shall be deemed Installations and therefore subject to the provisions of subsection 6.303.

SECTION 11.3 LANDLORD'S RIGHTS RELATING TO ASSIGNEE OR SUBTENANT. To the extent the rentals or income derived from any sublease or assignment exceed the rentals due hereunder, then, after Tenant has collected such rentals or other income such that Tenant has fully recovered any expenses incurred by Tenant when assigning or subleasing the Premises (including, without limitation, brokerage fees, attorneys' fees and any tenant improvement or other improvement expenses), such excess rentals (the "Excess Sublease Rentals") shall be the property of and paid over to Landlord in consideration for Landlord's consent to the applicable assignment or sublease. Landlord may at its option collect directly from such assignee or sublessee all rents becoming due to Tenant under such assignment or sublease. Tenant hereby authorizes and directs any such assignee or sublessee to make such payments of rent direct to Landlord upon receipt of notice from Landlord and Tenant agrees that any such payments made by an assignee or sublessee to Landlord shall, to the extent of the payments so made, be a full and complete release and discharge of rent owed to Tenant by such assignee or sublessee. No direct collection by Landlord from any such assignee or sublessee shall be construed to constitute a novation or a release of Tenant or any guarantor of Tenant from the further performance of its obligations hereunder. Receipt by Landlord of rent from any assignee, sublessee or occupant of the Premises or any part thereof shall not be deemed a waiver of the above covenant in this Lease against assignment and subletting or a release of Tenant under this Lease. In the event that, following an assignment or subletting, this Lease or Tenant's right to possession of the Premises is terminated for any reason, including without limitation in connection with default by or bankruptcy of Tenant (which, for the purposes of this Section 11.3, shall include all persons or entities claiming by or through Tenant), Landlord may, at its sole option, consider this Lease to be thereafter a direct lease to the assignee or subtenant of Tenant upon the terms and conditions contained in this Lease, in which event all rentals payable under such lease after the termination of this Lease or Tenant's right to possession of the Premises shall be deemed the property of Landlord.
 
SECTION 11.4 ASSIGNMENT AND BANKRUPTCY.

11.401
Assignments after Bankruptcy. If, pursuant to applicable bankruptcy law (as hereinafter defined in Section 13.104), Tenant (or its successor in interest hereunder) is permitted to assign this

If all defaults are not cured and such adequate assurance is not provided within sixty (60) days after there has been an order for relief under applicable bankruptcy law, then this Lease shall be deemed rejected, Tenant or any other person in possession shall immediately vacate the Premises, and Landlord shall be entitled to retain any Basic Annual Rent and any other Rent, together with any security deposit previously received from the Tenant, and shall have no further liability to Tenant or any person claiming through Tenant or any trustee.

11.402
Bankruptcy of Assignee. If Tenant assigns this Lease to any party and such party or its successors or representatives causes termination or rejection of this Lease pursuant to applicable bankruptcy law, then, notwithstanding any such termination or rejection, Tenant (i) shall remain fully liable for the performance of all covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions contained in this Lease, as though the assignment never occurred and (ii) shall, without in any way limiting the foregoing, in writing ratify the terms of this Lease, as same existed immediately prior to the termination or rejection.

Tenant also agrees that any lessor, mortgagee or trustee may elect (which election shall be revocable) to have this Lease superior to any lease or lien of its mortgage or deed of trust and, in the event of such election and upon notification by such lessor, mortgagee or trustee to Tenant to that effect, this Lease shall be deemed superior to the said lease, mortgage or deed of trust, whether this Lease is dated prior to or subsequent to the date of said lease, mortgage or deed of trust. Tenant shall, in the event of the sale or assignment of Landlord's interest in the Premises (except in a sale-leaseback financing transaction), or in the event of the termination of any lease in a sale-leaseback financing transaction wherein Landlord is the lessee, attorn to and recognize such purchaser, assignee or mortgagee as Landlord under this Lease. Tenant shall, in the event of any proceedings brought for the foreclosure of, or in the event of the exercise of the power of sale under, any mortgage or deed of trust covering the Premises, attorn to and recognize purchaser at such sale, assignee or mortgagee, as the case may be, as Landlord under this Lease. The above subordination and attornment clauses shall be self-operative and no further instruments of subordination or attornment need be required by any mortgagee, trustee, lessor, purchaser or assignee.

Lease Agreement - 28
Execution Copy 4/12/12

 
   
(a)  
accrued Rent to the date of termination and Late Charges, plus interest thereon at the rate established under Section 15.10 below from the date due through the date paid or date of any judgment or award by any court of competent jurisdiction, the unamortized cost of Tenant's Improvements, brokers' fees and commissions, attorneys' fees, moving allowances and any other costs incurred by Landlord in connection with making or executing this Lease, the cost of recovering the Premises and the costs of reletting the Premises (including, without limitation, advertising costs, brokerage fees, leasing commissions, reasonable attorneys' fees and refurbishing costs and other costs in readying the Premises for a new tenant);

(c)  
plus any other costs or amounts necessary to compensate Landlord for its damages.

13.202

13.205
Cumulative Remedies. No right or remedy herein conferred upon or reserved to Landlord is intended to be exclusive of any other right or remedy set forth herein or otherwise available to Landlord at law or in equity and each and every right and remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to any other right or remedy given hereunder or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity or by statute.

13.206
Mitigation of Damages. With respect to the provisions of the laws of the State of Texas or of this Lease which require that Landlord use reasonable efforts to relet the Premises, it is understood and agreed that the following shall apply in determining whether such efforts by Landlord to relet are reasonable:

with the high reputation of the Building even though in each of said circumstances such prospective tenant may have a good credit rating;
   
(g)  
Before reletting the Premises to a prospective tenant, Landlord may require the prospective tenant to demonstrate the same financial capacity that Landlord would require as a condition to leasing other space in the Building to the prospective tenant; and

(h)  
Listing the Premises with a broker in a manner consistent with subsections (a) through (g) above shall constitute prima facie evidence of reasonable efforts on the part of Landlord to relet the Premises.
      
SECTION 13.3 DEFAULTS BY LANDLORD. Landlord shall be in default under this Lease if Landlord fails to perform any of its obligations hereunder and said failure continues for a period of thirty (30) days after Tenant delivers written notice thereof to Landlord (to each of the addresses required by this Section) and each mortgagee who has a lien against any portion of the Project and whose name and address has been provided to Tenant, provided that if such failure cannot reasonably be cured within said thirty (30) day period, Landlord shall not be in default hereunder if the curative action is commenced within said thirty (30) day period and is thereafter diligently pursued until cured. In no event shall (i) Tenant claim a constructive or actual eviction or that the Premises have become unsuitable hereunder or (ii) a constructive or actual eviction or breach of the implied warranty of suitability be deemed to have occurred under this Lease, prior to the expiration of the notice and cure periods provided under this Section 13.3. Any notice of a failure to perform by Landlord shall be sent to Landlord at the addresses and to the attention of the parties set forth in the Basic Lease Provisions. Any notice of a failure to perform by Landlord not sent to Landlord at all addresses and/or to the attention of all parties required under this Section and to each mortgagee who is entitled to notice (provided Landlord has provided Tenant with notice requirements for said mortgagee) or not sent in compliance with Article 14 below shall be of no force or effect.

SECTION 13.4 LANDLORD'S LIABILITY.

13.401
Tenant's Rights in Respect of Landlord Default. Tenant is granted no contractual right of termination by this Lease, except to the extent and only to the extent set forth in Sections 7.1 and 8.2 above. If Tenant shall recover a money judgment against Landlord, such judgment shall be satisfied only out of the right, title and interest of Landlord in the Building as the same may then be encumbered and Landlord shall not be liable for any deficiency. If Landlord is found to be in default hereunder by reason of its failure to give a consent that it is required to give hereunder, Tenant's sole remedy will be an action for specific performance or injunction. The foregoing sentence shall in no event be construed as mandatorily requiring Landlord to give consents under this Lease. In no event shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for consequential or special damages by reason of a failure to perform (or a default) by Landlord hereunder or otherwise. In no event shall Tenant have the right to levy execution against any property of Landlord other than its interest in the Building as hereinbefore expressly provided.

13.402
Certain Limitations on Landlord's Liability. Unless caused by Landlord's (or its employees or agents) negligence or willful misconduct, and without limiting the provisions of Section 7.4, Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any claims, actions, demands, costs, expenses, damage or liability of any kind (i) arising out of the use, occupancy or enjoyment of the Premises by Tenant or any person therein or holding under Tenant or by or through the acts or omissions of any of their respective employees, officers, agents, invitees or contractors, (ii) caused by or
