If Tenant defaults in the payment of any installment of the rent and does not cure the default within five (5) days after notice, or if Tenant defaults in the prompt performance of any other provision of this Lease and does not cure such other default within ten (10) days, or forthwith if the default involves a hazardous condition, after written notice by Landlord, or if the leasehold interest of Tenant be levied upon under execution or be attached by process of law, or if Tenant makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or if a receiver be appointed for any property of Tenant, or if Tenant abandons or vacates the Leased Premises, Landlord may terminate this Lease and Tenant's right to possession of the Leased Premises or, without terminating this Lease, forthwith terminate Tenant's right to possession of the Leased Premises.
Upon any termination of this Lease, or upon any termination of the Tenant's right to possession without termination of the Lease, Tenant shall immediately vacate the Leased Premises and deliver possession to Landlord.
If Landlord elects to terminate Tenant's rights to possession only, without terminating this Lease, Landlord may, at Landlord's option, enter into the Leased Premises, remove Tenant's signs and other evidences of tenancy, and take and hold possession thereof without such entry and possession terminating this Lease or releasing Tenant from the obligation to pay the rent hereunder for the full Term.

expense of the reletting. If the consideration collected by Landlord upon any such reletting for Tenant's account is not sufficient to pay monthly the full amount of the rent reserved in this Lease, together with the costs of repairs, alterations, additions, redecorating and Landlord's expenses of reletting, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the amount of each monthly deficiency upon demand.
     Any property which may be removed from the Leased Premises by the Landlord pursuant to the authority of this Lease or of law, to which Tenant is or may be entitled, may be handled, removed or stored by Landlord at the risk, cost and expense of Tenant, and Landlord shall in no event be responsible for the value, preservation or safekeeping thereof.

     If Landlord shall default in the performance or observance of any agreement, condition or provision in this Lease and shall not cure such default within thirty (30) days after notice in writing from Tenant specifying the default (or shall not within said period commence to cure such default and thereafter prosecute the curing of such default to completion with due diligence) then the Tenant may at any time thereafter cure such default and the Landlord shall reimburse the Tenant for any amount reasonably paid and any expense or contractual liability reasonably so incurred.

If Landlord determines that such damage or destruction cannot be repaired within one hundred eighty (180) days so as to restore fully Tenant's full use and enjoyment of the Leased Premises, Landlord may, by written notice to the Tenant given within thirty (30) days after such damage, terminate this Lease as to all the Leased Premises as of the date of such destruction, and all rent owed up to the time of such destruction shall be paid by Tenant.

If the annual premiums to be paid by Landlord shall exceed the standard rates because of Tenant's operations, contents of the Leased Premises, or improvements with respect to the Leased Premises beyond building standard, resulting in extra-hazardous exposure, Tenant shall promptly pay the excess amount of the premium upon request by Landlord as additional rent.

28. Waiver of Subrogation.
     Anything in this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, Landlord and Tenant each hereby waive any and all rights of recovery, claim, action or cause of action, against the other, its agents, officers, or employees, for any loss or damage that may occur to the Leased Premises, or any improvements thereto, or to the Building of which the Leased Premises are a part, or any improvements thereto, or any personal property of such party therein, by reason of fire, the elements, or any other cause which could be insured against under the terms of standard fire and extended coverage insurance policies referred to in Section 27 hereof, regardless of cause or origin, including negligence of the other party hereto, its agents, officers or employees, and covenants that no insurer shall have any right of subrogation against such other party.

Tenant shall, in the event any proceeding is brought for the foreclosure of, or in the event a deed is given in lieu of foreclosure of, any mortgage made by Landlord covering the Building, attorn to the purchaser upon any such foreclosure or sale and recognize such purchaser as the Landlord under this Lease, provided such purchaser elects to adopt this Lease and gives Tenant written notice thereof. Tenant agrees to execute any instruments evidencing such subordination and attainment as may be reasonably required by the holder of any mortgage covering the Building.
31. Estoppel Letter.
     Tenant shall at any time, upon not less than five (5) days' prior written request from Landlord, its successors or assigns, execute and deliver in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord, its successors and assigns, and any mortgagee or beneficiary under a deed of trust affecting the Leased Premises, an estoppel letter certifying:
