Although state law does not require a CASp inspection of the subject premises, the commercial property owner or lessor may not prohibit the lessee or tenant from obtaining a CASp inspection of the subject premises for the occupancy or potential occupancy of the lessee or tenant, if requested by the lessee or tenant. The parties shall mutually agree on the arrangements for the time and manner of the CASp inspection, the payment of the fee for the CASp inspection, and the cost of making any repairs necessary to correct violations of construction related accessibility standards within the premises. In the event Sublessee wishes to obtain a CASp inspection, Sublessee will be required to comply with all terms of the Master Lease and will be responsible for the payment of all costs associated with such inspection and any cost required to correct violations of construction related accessibility standards identified by the CASp inspection.

9. Brokers. Each party represents and warrants to the other that no broker, agent or finder negotiated or was instrumental in negotiating or consummating this Amendment 2, other than Jones Lang LaSalle (for Sublessor) and Hughes Marino (for Sublessee). Each party further agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the other party from and against any claim for commission or finder's fee by any person or entity who claims or alleges that they were retained or engaged by the indemnifying party or at the request of such party in connection with this Amendment.


10. Lessor Consent. This Amendment 2 is subject to and contingent upon Lessor's execution of a consent document in a form reasonably acceptable to Sublessor and Sublessee within thirty (30) days of the date hereof. In the event Lessor does not execute such consent within such time, either party may terminate this Amendment 2 (in which case the Original Sublease will remain in full force and effect notwithstanding such termination) upon written notice to the other party, which termination will be effective upon receipt. For clarification, in the event this Amendment 2 is terminated as provided above, Sublessee’s right to extend the term of the Sublease on Expansion Space per Section 12 of the First Amendment to Sublease shall remain intact and the parties shall use commercially reasonable efforts to receive Lessor’s consent document in a form reasonably acceptable to Sublessor and Sublessee.

11. Representations.

Prior to any change in ownership of Sublessee, the applicable party shall sign a written statement to Sublessor affirming their compliance with the terms of this Section 18. The indemnity obligations of the Sublease shall apply to any breach of this Section.

13. Defaults. Sublessee hereby represents and warrants to Sublessor that, as of the date of this Amendment 2, Sublessee is in full compliance with all terms, covenants and conditions of the Sublease and Amendment 1 and that there are no breaches or defaults under the Sublease by Sublessor or Sublessee, and that Sublessee knows of no events or circumstances which, given the passage of time, would constitute a default under the Sublease by either Sublessor or Sublessee. Sublessor hereby warrants and represents to Sublessee that, to Sublessor’s current actual knowledge, the Master Lease is in full force and effect and Sublessor has no knowledge of any claim by Lessor that Sublessor is in default or breach of any provisions of the Master Lease.

14. No Further Modification. Except as set forth in this Amendment 2, all of the terms and provisions of the Sublease shall apply with respect to the Expansion Space and shall remain unmodified and in full force and effect.
