with this Lease Agreement. A certificate of insurance evidencing that such policies have been secured shall be
delivered to Lessor within thirty (30) days from the execution of this Lease Agreement. All insurance policies
provided for hereunder shall be secured only from an insurance company with a minimum policy holder and
financial rating of "A-" or better in the then-current fee edition of Best's Insurance Guide.

E.
To the extent reasonably obtainable, the cancellation clause of the certificates of insurance
secured hereunder shall specifically state that in the event of non-renewal of policies, cancellation, or material
change in the coverage provided, thirty (30) days prior written notice will be furnished to Lessor. Lessee shall
deliver the evidence of such insurance required above to Lessor on or before the first day of the Initial Term

memorandum of insurance ("MOI") website in order for Lessor to review the coverage required by this
Paragraph 20.

F.
If either party hereto is paid any proceeds under any policy of insurance naming such party as an
insured, on account of any loss or damage, then such party hereby releases the other party hereto, to and only to
the extent of the amount of such proceeds, from any and all liability for such loss or damage, notwithstanding
that such loss, damage or liability may arise out of the negligent or intentionally tortious act or omission of the
other party, its agents or employees; provided, that such release shall be effective only as to a loss or damage
occurring while the appropriate policy of insurance of the releasing party provides that such release shall not
impair the effectiveness of such policy or the insured's ability to recover thereunder. Each party hereto shall use
reasonable efforts to have a clause to such effect included in its said policies, and shall promptly notify the other
in writing if such clause cannot be included in any such policy. To the extent that insurance policies containing
Waiver of Subrogation are available, but not secured by either party, Lessor and Lessee hereby indemnify and
hold harmless each other from any subrogated claims made by their respective insurers resulting from their
failure to secure a Waiver of Subrogation.

the Leased Property as long as Lessee is not in default of this Agreement. Conditioned upon Lessee's receipt of

instruments may reasonably be required to evidence this subordination clause. In the event the Premises is
encumbered by a mortgage which predates this LeaseAgreement, Lessor immediately after this Lease
Agreement is executed, will diligently attempt to obtain and furnish to Lessee, a non-disturbance agreement
