  • Commercial Lease. Start a state-specific lease for the rental of commercial property. Specify the term and rent due, as well as whether the landlord or tenant is responsible for property taxes, insurance, and maintenance and repairs.
  • Commercial Sublease. When a tenant vacates commercial property before the lease term has expired, it may be able to rent the premises to a third party. The tenant would be the sublessor and the third party would be the sublessee. Besides preparing a sublease, both parties will want to review the provisions for assignment or subletting in the original lease agreement between the landlord and the sublessor.
  • Sublease Agreement. Tenants of residential property should prepare a sublease agreement if they are seeking to sublease a room or the entire apartment or house to a third party. All parties should review the original lease agreement to see if there are any restrictions on subletting or assigning the premises.
  • Triple Net Lease. Triple net leases are a type of commercial leases where the tenant has to pay for property taxes, insurance, utilities, and maintenance, in addition to the monthly rent.
  • Office Space Lease. When renting an office space, tenants should understand the amount of the rent and duration of the lease. Other important terms include whether the space can be subleased, which parties are responsible for maintenance, and whether any furniture and furnishings will be provided.

months from the date of commencement. Refer to First Addendum to Sublease,
Section 1, for Sublease commencement date.

         3.2  DELAY IN COMMENCEMENT.  Sublessor agrees to use its best
commercially reasonable efforts to deliver possession of the Premises by the
commencement date. If, despite said efforts, Sublessor is unable to deliver
possession as agreed, Sublessor shall not be subject to any liability therefor,
nor shall such failure affect the validity of this Sublease. Sublessee shall

receives possession of the Premises. If possession is not delivered within sixty
days after the commencement date, Sublessee may, at its option, by notice in
writing within ten days after the end of such sixty day period, cancel this
Sublease, in which event the Parties shall be discharged from all obligations
hereunder. If such written notice is not received by Sublessor within said ten
day period, Sublessee's right to cancel shall terminate. Except as otherwise
provided, if possession is not tendered to Sublessee when required and Sublessee
does not terminate this Sublease, as aforesaid, any period of rent abatement
that Sublessee would otherwise have enjoyed shall run from the date of delivery
of possession and continue for a period equal to what Sublessee would otherwise
have enjoyed under the terms hereof, but minus any days of delay caused by the
acts or omissions of Sublessee. If possession is not delivered within 120 days
after the commencement date, this Sublease shall automatically terminate unless
the Parties agree, in writing, to the contrary.

         4.1  BASE RENT.  Sublessee shall pay to Sublessor as Base Rent for the
Premises equal monthly payments of (refer to First Addendum to Standard

hereof. Sublessee shall pay Sublessor upon the execution hereof 33,750.00 as
Base Rent for July 1, 2001 - July 31, 2001. Base Rent for any period during the
term hereof which is for less than one month shall be a pro rata portion of the
monthly installment.

         4.2  RENT DEFINED.  All monetary obligations of Sublessee to Sublessor
under the terms of this Sublease (except for the Security Deposit) are deemed
to be rent ("RENT"). Rent shall be payable in lawful money of the United States
to Sublessor at the address stated herein or to such other persons or at such
other places as Sublessor may designate in writing.

     5.  SECURITY DEPOSIT.  Sublessee shall deposit with Sublessor upon
execution hereof $67,500.00 as security for Sublessee's faithful performance of
Sublessee's obligations hereunder. If Sublessee fails to pay Rent or other
charges due hereunder, or otherwise defaults with respect to any provision of
this Sublease, Sublessor may use, apply or retain all or any portion of said
deposit for the payment of any Rent or other charge in default or for the
payment of any other sum to which Sublessor may become obligated by reason of
Sublessee's default, or to compensate Sublessor for any loss or damage which
Sublessor may suffer thereby. If Sublessor so uses or applies all or any portion
of said deposit, Sublessee shall within ten days after written demand therefore
forward to Sublessor an amount sufficient to restore said Deposit to the full
amount provided for herein and Sublessee's failure to do so shall be a material
breach of this Sublease. Sublessor shall not be required to keep said Deposit
separate from its general accounts. If Sublessee performs all of Sublessee's
obligations hereunder, said Deposit, or so much thereof as has not therefore
been applied by Sublessor, shall be returned, without payment of interest to
Sublessee (or at Sublessor's option, to the last assignee, if any, of
Sublessee's interest hereunder) at the expiration of the term hereof, and after
Sublessee has vacated the Premises. No trust relationship is created herein
between Sublessor and Sublessee with respect to said Security Deposit.

     6.  USE.

         6.1  AGREED USE.  The Premises shall be used and occupied only for
office and research & development and for no other purposes.

     6.2  COMPLIANCE.  To Sublessor's actual knowledge, without investigation,
the improvements on the Premises comply with all applicable covenants or
restrictions of record and applicable building codes, regulations and ordinances
with respect to building codes ("APPLICABLE REQUIREMENTS") in effect on the
commencement date. Said warranty does not apply to the use to which Sublessee
will put the Premises or to any alterations or utility installations made or to
be made by Sublessee. NOTE: Sublessee is responsible for determining whether or
not the zoning is appropriate for its intended use, and acknowledges that past
uses of the Premises may no longer be allowed.

the Applicable Requirements are hereafter changed so as to require during the
term of this Sublease the construction of an addition to or an alteration of
the Building, the remediation of any Hazardous Substance, or the reinforcement
or other physical modification of the Building ("CAPITAL EXPENDITURE"),
Sublessor and Sublessee shall allocate the cost of such work as follows:

          (a)  If such Capital Expenditures are required as a result of the
specific and unique use of the Premises by Sublessee as compared with uses by
tenants in general, Sublessee shall be fully responsible for the cost thereof
provided, however, that if such Capital Expenditure is required during the last
two years of this Sublease and the cost thereof exceeds six months' Base Rent,
Sublessee may instead terminate this Sublease unless Sublessor notifies
Sublessee in writing, within ten days after receipt of Sublessee's termination
notice that Sublessor has elected to pay the difference between the actual cost
thereof and the amount equal to six months' Base Rent. If the Parties elect
termination, Sublessee shall immediately cease the use of the Premises which
requires such Capital Expenditure and deliver to Sublessor written notice
specifying a termination date at least ninety days thereafter.

          (b)  If such Capital Expenditure is not the result of the specific and
unique use of the Premises by Sublessee (such as governmentally mandated seismic
modifications, then Sublessor shall pay for said Capital Expenditure and the
cost thereof shall be prorated between the Sublessor and Sublessee and Sublessee
shall only be obligated to pay, each month during the remainder of the term of
this Sublease, on the date on which Rent is due, an amount equal to the product
of multiplying the cost of such Capital Expenditure by a fraction, the numerator
of which is one, and the denominator of which is the number of months of the
useful life of such Capital Expenditure as such useful life is specified
pursuant to Federal income tax regulations or guidelines for depreciation
thereof (including interest on the unamortized balance as is then commercially
reasonable in the judgment of Sublessor's accountant), with Sublessee reserving
the right to prepay its obligation at any time. Provided, however, that if such
Capital Expenditure is required during the last two years of this Sublease or if
Sublessor reasonably determines that it is not economically feasible to pay its
share thereof, Sublessor shall have the option to terminate this Sublease upon
ninety days prior written notice to Sublessee unless Sublessee notifies
Sublessor, in writing, within ten days after receipt of Sublessor's termination
notice that Sublessee will pay for such Capital Expenditure. If Sublessor does
not elect to terminate, and fails to tender its share of any such Capital
Expenditure, Sublessee may advance such funds and deduct same, with interest,
from Rent until Sublessor's share of such costs have been fully paid. If
Sublessee is unable to finance Sublessor's share, or if the balance of the Rent
due and payable for the remainder of this Sublease is not sufficient to fully
reimburse Sublessee on an offset basis, Sublessee shall have the right to
terminate this Sublease upon ten days written notice to Sublessor.

          (c)  Notwithstanding the above, the provisions concerning Capital
Expenditures apply only to non voluntary, unexpected, and new Applicable
Requirements. If the Capital Expenditures are instead triggered by Sublessee as
a result of an actual or proposed change in use, change in intensity of use, or
modification to the Premises then, that in the event, Sublessee shall be fully
responsible for the cost thereof, and Sublessee shall not have any right to
terminate this Sublease.

         6.3   ACCEPTANCE OF PREMISES AND LESSEE. Sublessee acknowledges that:

         (a)   It has been advised by Brokers to satisfy itself with respect to
the condition of the Premises (including but not limited to the electrical,
HVAC and fire sprinkler systems, security, environmental aspects, and
compliance with Applicable Requirements), and their suitability for
Sublessee's intended use,
          (b)  Sublessee has made such investigation as it deems necessary with
reference to such matters and assumes all responsibility therefor as the same
relate to its occupancy of the Premises, and

          (c)  neither Sublessor, Sublessor's agents, nor any Broker has made
any oral or written representations or warranties with respect to said matters
other than as set forth in this Sublease.

In addition, Sublessor acknowledges that:

          (a)  Broker has made no representations, promises or warranties
concerning Sublessee's ability to honor the Sublease or suitability to occupy
the Premises, and

          (b)  It is Sublessor's sole responsibility to investigate the
financial capability and/or suitability of all proposed tenants.

     7.   MASTER LEASE

          7.1  Sublessor is the lessee of the Premises by virtue of a lease,
hereinafter the "MASTER LEASE", a copy of which is attached hereto marked
Exhibit 1, wherein Landmark Asset Management Group is the lessor, hereinafter

          7.2  This Sublease is and shall be at all times subject and
subordinate to the Master Lease.

          7.3  The terms, conditions and respective obligations of Sublessor
and Sublessee to each other under this Sublease shall be in the terms and
conditions of the Master Lease except for those provisions of the Master Lease
which are directly contradicted by this Sublease in which event the terms of
this Sublease document shall control over the Master Lease. Therefore, for the
purposes of this Sublease, whenever in the Master Lease the word "Lessor" is
used it shall be deemed to mean the Sublessor herein and wherever in the Master
Lease the word "Lessee" is used it shall be deemed to mean the Sublessee herein.

          7.4  During the term of this Sublease and for all periods subsequent
for obligations which have arisen prior to the termination of this Sublease,
Sublessee does hereby expressly assume and agree to perform and comply with,
for the benefit of Sublessor and Master Lessor, each and every obligation of
Sublessor as it relates to the Subleased Premises under the Master Lease except
for the following paragraphs which are excluded therefrom:

Refer to Addendum to Sublease Section 16

          7.5  The obligations that Sublessee has assumed under paragraph 7.4
hereof are hereinafter referred to as the "SUBLESSEE'S ASSUMED OBLIGATIONS".
The obligations that Sublessee has not assumed under paragraph 7.4 hereof are
hereinafter referred to as the "SUBLESSOR'S REMAINING OBLIGATIONS".

          7.6  Sublessee shall hold Sublessor free and harmless from all
liability, judgments, costs, damages, claims or demands, including reasonable
attorneys fees, arising out of Sublessee's failure to comply with or perform
Sublessee's Assumed Obligations.

          7.7  Sublessor agrees to maintain the Master Lease during the entire
term of this Sublease, subject, however, to any earlier termination of the
Master Lease without the fault of the Sublessor, and to comply with or perform
Sublessor's Remaining Obligations and to hold Sublessee free and harmless from
all liability, judgments, costs, damages, claims or demands arising out of
Sublessor's failure to comply with or perform Sublessor's Remaining Obligations.

          7.8  Sublessor represents to Sublessee that the Master Lease is in
full force and effect and that no default exists on the part of any Party to
the Master Lease.


          8.1  Sublessor hereby assigns and transfers to Master Lessor the
Sublessor's interest in this Sublease, subject however to the provisions of
Paragraph 8.2 hereof.

          8.2  Master Lessor, by executing this document, agrees that until a
Default shall occur in the performance of Sublessor's Obligations under the
Master Lease, that Sublessor may receive, collect and enjoy the Rent accruing
under this Sublease. However, if Sublessor shall Default in the performance of
its obligations to Master Lessor then Master Lessor may, at its option, receive
and collect directly from Sublessee, all Rent owing and to be owed under this
Sublease. Master Lessor shall not, by reason of this assignment of the Sublease
nor by reason of the collection of the Rent from the Sublessee, be deemed liable
to Sublessee for any failure of the Sublessor to perform and comply with
Sublessor's Remaining Obligations.

          8.3  Sublessor hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs Sublessee
upon receipt of any written notice from the Master Lessor stating that a
Default exists in the performance of Sublessor's obligations under the Master
Lease, to pay to Master Lessor the Rent due and to become due under the
Sublease. Sublessor agrees that Sublessee shall have the right to rely upon any
such statement and request from Master Lessor, and that Sublessee shall pay
such Rent to Master Lessor without any obligation or right to inquire as to
whether such Default exists and notwithstanding any notice from or claim from
Sublessor to the contrary and Sublessor shall have no right or claim against
Sublessee for any such Rent so paid by Sublessee.

          8.4  No changes or modifications shall be made to this Sublease
without the consent of Master Lessor.

          9.1  In the event that the Master Lease requires that Sublessor
obtain the consent of Master Lessor to any subletting by Sublessor then, this
Sublease shall not be effective unless, within thirty days of the date hereof,
Master Lessor signs this Sublease thereby giving its consent to this Subletting.
          9.3  In the event that Master Lessor does give such consent then:
               (a)  Such consent shall not release Sublessor of its obligations
or alter the primary liability of Sublessor to pay the Rent and perform and
comply with all of the obligations of Sublessor to be performed under the
Master Lease.
               (b)  The acceptance of Rent by Master Lessor from Sublessee or
anyone else liable under the Master Lease shall not be deemed a waiver by
Master Lessor of any provisions of the Master Lease.
               (c)  The consent to this Sublease shall not constitute a consent
to any subsequent subletting or assignment.
               (d)  In the event of any Default of Sublessor under the Master
Lease, Master Lessor may proceed directly against Sublessor, any guarantors or
anyone else liable under the Master Lease or this Sublease without first
exhausting Master Lessor's remedies against any other person or entity liable
thereon to Master Lessor.
               (e)  Master Lessor may consent to subsequent sublettings and
assignments of the Master Lease or this Sublease or any amendments or
modifications thereto without notifying Sublessor or anyone else liable under
the Master Lease and without obtaining their consent and such action shall not
relieve such persons from liability.
               (f)  In the event that Sublessor shall Default in its
obligations under the Master Lease, then Master Lessor, at its option and
without being obligated to do so, may require Sublessee to attorn to Master
Lessor in which event Master Lessor shall undertake the obligations of
Sublessor under this Sublease from the time of the exercise of said option to
termination of this Sublease but Master Lessor shall not be liable for any
prepaid Rent nor any Security Deposit paid by Sublessee, nor shall Master
Lessor be liable for any other Defaults of the Sublessor under the Sublease.
          9.4  The signatures of the Master Lessor and any Guarantors of
Sublessor at the end of this document shall constitute their consent to the
terms of this Sublease.

     This First Addendum to Standard Sublease (this "Addendum") is made by and
between Savi Technology, Inc. ("Sublessor") and Infogrames, Inc. ("Sublessee"),
to be a part of that certain Sublease of May 30, 2001, herewith between
Sublessor and Sublessee (the "Sublease"). Sublessor and Sublessee agree that,
notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Sublease, the Sublease is hereby
modified and supplemented as set forth below. In the event of any conflict
between the terms of the Sublease and this Addendum, the terms of this Addendum
shall be controlling and shall take precedence.

     1.   Commencement. The Sublease term shall commence two (2) weeks following
full execution and consent of Sublease, estimated to be July 1, 2001 (the
"Commencement Date"), unless conditions beyond the control of Sublessor prevent
Sublessee from taking possession on July 1, 2001; in such event, Commencement
Date shall be the date that the Premises is available for Sublessee to move in.
Sublessee shall have the right to access the Premises during business hours for
planning and preliminary installation of phones and networking equipment, etc.,
immediately upon execution of the Sublease. Such early occupancy shall be
subject to all of the provisions of the Sublease, except the obligation to pay

     2.   Rent. Sublessee shall pay to Sublessor as Base Rent for the Premises
monthly payments as per the following schedule:

          July 2001 - June 2002    $33,750.00 per month
          July 2002 - June 2003    $34,762.50 per month
          July 2003 - June 2004    $35,805.38 per month

     Sublessee shall pay to Sublessor as additional rent the same amount per
square foot of the Premises that Sublessor is required to pay to Master Lessor
as "Additional Rent" (as defined in Section 3.2 of the Master Lease) excluding
late charges, interest, penalties and the like that Sublessor is required to
pay to Master Lessor as the result of Sublessor's failure to make timely
payments or other Sublessor failures to perform.

     3.   Condition of Premises. Sublessor shall deliver possession of the
Premises broom clean condition and free of refuse and in good condition, with
the building systems, including but not limited to plumbing, electrical and
HVAC, in good operating order and the roof in good condition. Sublessee's
acceptance of the Premises shall not be deemed a waiver of the foregoing.

     4.   Sublease. Notwithstanding the terms of Section 7.3 of the Sublease,
any references to "Landlord" contained in the following sections of the Master
Lease shall be deemed to refer to the Master Landlord only: Sections 4.2, 4.3,
4.4, 4.5, 4.6 (except the last reference, which shall refer to both the Master
Landlord and Sublessor), 1.9, 6.3, 5.3, 5.4, 6.1(c), 6.1(e), 6.2, 7.2(d), 9.2,
11.1, 12.3, and 15.4(b). Sublessee acknowledges that Sublessor's sole obligation
with respect to any obligations of the Master Landlord under the Lease shall be
to request the performance of the same by the Master Landlord, and that
Sublessor shall have no liability to Sublessee if Sublessor fails to render any
required performance. Any references to "Landlord" contained in the following
sections of the Master Lease shall be deemed to refer to both Sublessor and the
Master Landlord: Sections 4.1, the last reference in section 4.6, 5.2, 7.2
(except for subsection (d)), 9.1, 9.3, 10.3, 15.1, and 15.5.

The provisions of the Master Lease as set forth in Section 7.3 of the Sublease
shall be incorporated into the Sublease, except as follows: (a) each reference
in such incorporated sections to "Lease" and "Premises" shall be deemed a
reference to "Sublease" and the Premises hereunder, respectively; (b) each
reference to the Lease term shall mean the Sublease term; (c) references to
Landlord in Sections 1.9, 5.4, 6.3 (except for common areas between Sublessor
and Sublessee), 8.2, 9.1(a)(3), 11.2 and 12.1 shall mean Master Lessor; (d)
Sublessee's Share of the Building shall be based on the rentable square footage.
In the event of an inconsistency between the incorporated provisions and the
express provisions of the Sublease, the express provisions shall prevail.

     5.   Waiver of Subrogation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary
herein, the parties hereto release each other and their respective agents,
employees, successors and assigns from all liability for injury to any person
or damage to any property that is caused by or results from a risk which is
actually insured against or which would normally be covered by "all risk"
property insurance.

     6.   Indemnity. Sublessor shall not be released or indemnified from, and
shall indemnify, defend, protect and hold harmless Sublessee from, all damages,
losses, liabilities, claims, attorneys' fees, costs and expenses arising from
the GROSS negligence or willful misconduct of Sublessor or its agents,
contractors, licensees or invitees or a breach of Sublessor's obligations or
representations under the Sublease.

     7.   Master Lease Common Operating Expenses. In no event shall Sublessee's
obligation to pay "Common Operating Expenses" exceed the amount attributable to
the Premises due and payable by Sublessor under the Master Lease. Sublessee
shall pay such amounts as and when the same are due and payable to Master Lessor
under the Master Lease. Sublessee shall be entitled to pro rata share of all
credits, if any, given by Master Lessor to Sublessor for Sublessor's overpayment
of such expenses.

     8.   Common Areas. Sublessee shall have the non-exclusive right to use at
all times the first floor restrooms located in the Building and the hallway
leading from the Premises to such restrooms. In addition, Sublessee shall have
the right to use Sublessor's security system. Sublessor shall maintain such
security system in good operating order.

obligations under the Master Lease to the extent Sublessee has not expressly
agreed to perform such obligations under the Sublease. Sublessor shall not,
without Sublessee's prior written consent, terminate the Master Lease, amend or
waive any provisions under the Master Lease or make any elections, exercise any
right or remedy or give any consent or approval under the Master Lease in such a

within said thirty (30) day period, this period shall be extended for an
additional reasonable time, provided that Sublessor commences to cure such
default within such thirty (30) day period and proceeds diligently thereafter to
effect such cure as quickly as possible), then Sublessee shall be entitled to
cure such default and promptly collect from Sublessor Sublessee's reasonable
expenses in so doing (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees
and court costs). Sublessee shall not be required, however, to wait the entire
cure period described herein if earlier action is required to comply with the
Master Lease or with any applicable governmental law, regulation or order.

other party which would have the effect of terminating the Master Lease or
