  • 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.

    At Landlord's sole discretion, but without obligation, Tenant may request
    the May 1, 2002 security deposit increase to be provided in the form of a
    Letter of Credit, according to the following provisions:

    A.  DELIVERY OF LETTER OF CREDIT.  In lieu of depositing an increased cash
        security deposit with Landlord, Tenant may, upon Landlord's review of
        Tenant's then-current audited financial statements, elect to deliver to
        Landlord and cause to be in effect during the remainder of the Lease
        Term an unconditional, irrevocable letter of credit ("LOC") in the
        amount of $896,029.00 for the increased Security Deposit in this Lease
        Amendment #1, as it may be increased as provided in this Amendment and
        the Lease (the "LOC AMOUNT") for an initial term extending 30 days
        beyond the expiration date of this Lease Amendment #1 or any extension
        thereto. The LOC shall be in a form acceptable to Landlord and shall be
        issued by an LOC bank selected by Tenant and acceptable to Landlord.
        The text of the LOC shall expressly state that the LOC shall survive
        the termination of this Lease. An LOC bank is a bank that accepts
        deposits, maintains accounts, has a local office that will negotiate a
        letter of credit, and the deposits of which are insured by the Federal
        Deposit Insurance Corporation. Tenant shall pay all expenses, points,
        or fees incurred by Tenant in obtaining the LOC. The LOC shall not be
        mortgaged, assigned or encumbered in any manner whatsoever by Tenant
        without the prior

<PAGE>   3
      B. REPLACEMENT OF LETTER OF CREDIT. Tenant may, from time to time, replace
         any existing LOC with a new LOC if the new LOC (a) becomes effective at
         least thirty (30) days before expiration of the LOC that it replaces;
         (b) is in the required LOC amount; (c) is issued by an LOC bank
         acceptable to Landlord; and (d) otherwise complies with the
         requirements of this Paragraph 6.

      C. LANDLORD'S RIGHT TO DRAW ON LETTER OF CREDIT. Landlord shall hold the
         LOC as security for the performance of Tenant's obligations under this
         Lease. If, after notice and failure to cure within any applicable
         period provided in this Lease, Tenant defaults on any provision of this
         Lease, Landlord may, without prejudice to any other remedy it has, draw
         on that portion of the LOC necessary to (a) pay Rent or other sum in
         default; (b) pay or reimburse Landlord for any amount that Landlord may
         spend or become obligated to spend in exercising Landlord's rights
         under Paragraph 30 (Right of Landlord to Perform Tenant's Covenant);
         and/or (c) compensate Landlord for any expense, loss, or damage that
         Landlord may suffer because of Tenant's default. If Tenant fails to
         renew or replace the LOC at least thirty (30) days before its
         expiration, Landlord may, without prejudice to any other remedy it has,
         draw on the entire amount of the LOC.

      D. LOC SECURITY DEPOSIT. Any amount of the LOC that is drawn on by
         Landlord but not applied by Landlord shall be held by Landlord as a
         security deposit (the "LOC SECURITY DEPOSIT") in accordance with
         Paragraph 19 of this Lease.

         draws on any portion of the LOC and/or applies all or any portion of
         such draw, Tenant shall, within five (5) business days after demand by
         Landlord, either (a) deposit cash with Landlord in an amount that, when
         added to the amount remaining under the LOC and the amount of any LOC
         Security Deposit, shall equal the LOC Amount then required under this
         Paragraph 6; or (b) reinstate the LOC to the full LOC Amount.

   If Tenant elects to have Landlord review Tenant's then-current audited
   financial statements, Landlord is obligated in no way to decrease Tenant's
   security deposit.


   Tenant's Proportionate Share of the Building shall be as follows:

               Suite 510       4.60%
               Suite 550       4.24%
               Suite 500      14.42%


   Tenant shall accept the Premises in "as-is" condition. However, Landlord
   shall shampoo the carpets and clean, repair and replace blinds as necessary
   within suites 550, 500 and 510. Landlord will also patch and paint damage to
   the reception area wall in Suite 550.

   Tenant may, at Tenant's sole cost, construct the improvements as shown on the
   Attached Exhibit #1 to this Amendment. All improvements made to the Premises
   by Tenant shall be in accordance with the provisions of Paragraph 12 of the
   Lease. Landlord will charge a lowered administration fee of five percent (5%)
   of the cost of the improvements shown on the attached Exhibit 1.

     Notwithstanding the provisions of Paragraph 37 of the Lease, Landlord will
     be implementing parking charges by the end of 2000. Tenant shall pay to
     Landlord (or Landlord's parking contractor, if so directed in writing by
     Landlord), as Additional rent hereunder, the monthly charges established
     from time to time by Landlord for parking in such parking areas. Such
     parking charges shall be payable in advance with Tenant's payment of Basic
     Rent. No deductions from the monthly parking charge shall be made for days
     on which the Tenant does not use any of the parking spaces entitled to be
     used by Tenant.

Except as expressly modified above, all terms and conditions of the lease
remain in full force and effect and are hereby ratified and confirmed.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have entered into this First
Amendment as of the date first written above.
