  • 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.

                      FIRST AMENDMENT TO LEASE (BUILDING 2)

        THIS FIRST AMENDMENT TO LEASE (this "Amendment") is made as of July 12,
2002, by and between M-F DOWNTOWN SUNNYVALE, LLC, a Delaware limited liability
company (herein called "Landlord"), and HANDSPRING, INC., a California
corporation (herein called "Tenant").


        A. Landlord is the landlord and Tenant is the tenant under a Lease
Agreement (Building 2) dated as of February 14, 2001 (the "Lease"), for
approximately 134,554 rentable square feet of space (the "Premises"),
constituting the entire six-story building currently under construction and
located at the corner of Evelyn and Mathilda Avenues in Sunnyvale, California,
designated as "Building 2" on the Project Site Plan attached to the Lease, and
more specifically described in the Lease. Capitalized terms used but not
otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings given them in the Lease.

        B. A Work Letter (Building 2) is attached to the Lease as Exhibit "C"
(the "Work Letter"). The Work Letter provides that the Landlord will complete,
at Landlord's cost, the Base Building (as defined in the Work Letter) and that
Tenant will complete, at Tenant's cost, the Warm Shell Improvements and Tenant
Improvements (both as defined in the Work Letter). Tenant's obligations under
the Work Letter are secured by a TI Letter of Credit provided to Landlord, as
more specifically provided in the Work Letter. The Work Letter provides that the
TI Letter of Credit will be released by Landlord to Tenant within sixty (60)
days after the Tenant has spent at least the face amount of the TI Letter of
Credit on the Warm Shell Improvements and Tenant Improvements and certain other
conditions have been satisfied to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord and
any Mortgagee(s) (as defined in the Lease).

        C. Landlord now is willing to allow the reduction of the face amount of
the TI Letter of Credit from time to time on the terms and conditions set forth
in this Amendment.

        D. Tenant and Landlord now desire to amend the Lease and the Work Letter
on the terms and conditions set forth in this Amendment.

           NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises set forth
herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and legal
sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as

        2. AMENDMENT TO LEASE. Paragraph 18 of the Lease is amended by adding
the parenthetical "(any of the foregoing being defined as an "Insolvency
Proceeding")" after the phrase "whether now existing or hereafter amended or
enacted" in the first sentence of such paragraph.

        3. AMENDMENTS TO WORK LETTER. The Work Letter is amended as follows:

           (a) PARAGRAPH 13(e): Paragraph 13(e) of the Work Letter is amended as

               (i) By renaming the existing Paragraph 13(e) as subparagraph
        13(e)(i) with the subheading "INITIAL TI REQUIRED AMOUNT".

               (ii) By adding the following new subparagraph 13(e)(ii):

                    (ii) REDUCTION OF TI REQUIRED AMOUNT.
           Notwithstanding the foregoing, but subject to the conditions set
           forth in this subparagraph 13(e)(ii), Tenant shall be entitled to
           amend the TI Letter of Credit


           from time to time, but no more frequently than once in each calendar
           month and four times in the aggregate, to cause the initial face
           amount of the TI Letter of Credit to be reduced by a sum equal to the
           amount that has then been spent by Tenant on the Warm Shell
           Improvements and/or Tenant Improvements, and such reduced face amount
           from time to time shall be the "TI Required Amount" under this
           Paragraph 13(e); provided, however, that Tenant's right to amend the
           TI Letter of Credit in accordance with this subparagraph 13(e)(ii)
           shall be conditioned upon the following: (i) Tenant shall not be in
           Default (and no event has occurred which, with the passage of time or
           giving of notice or both, would constitute a Default) under the Lease
           or this Work Letter at the time Tenant requests such reduction and at
           all times subsequent thereto until such reduction occurs, (ii) no
           Work Letter Draw Event shall have occurred; (iii) the TI Required
           Amount after giving effect to such reduction shall be in an aggregate
           amount that is not less than the remaining cost (as determined by
           Landlord and Mortgagee in their respective reasonable discretion) to
           complete the Warm Shell Improvements and the Tenant Improvements
           (including retention amounts); (iv) Tenant shall have provided
           Landlord with paid receipts and/or such other evidence of payment as
           Landlord may request from all of Tenant's Agents rendering work or
           providing materials in connection with the Warm Shell Improvements
           and/or Tenant Improvements in an aggregate amount of not less than
           the aggregate amount of all reductions to the TI Required Amount
           (including the reduction then being requested) that have occurred at
           such time; and (v) Tenant shall have provided Landlord with executed
           unconditional mechanics' lien releases from all of Tenant's Agents
           described in clause (iv) above, with respect to all sums paid to date
           by Tenant and in an amount of not less than the aggregate amount of
           all reductions in the TI Required Amount (including the reduction
           then being requested) that have occurred at such time. Each such
           amendment to the TI Letter of Credit shall be in form and substance
           satisfactory to Landlord and any Mortgagee, in their respective
           reasonable discretion.

           (b) PARAGRAPH 13(f): Paragraph 13(f) of the Work Letter is amended by
replacing the words "in this clause (v)" with the words "in this subparagraph

respect to the Premises, and any proposed Assignment or Sublease by Tenant is
subject to the terms and conditions of Paragraph 9 of the Lease.

        5. ATTORNEYS' FEES. If either party brings any action against the other,
declaratory or otherwise, arising out of this Amendment, and whether such

prevailing party a reasonable sum for attorney's fees, which shall be deemed to
have accrued on the commencement of such action and shall be paid whether or not
the action is prosecuted to judgment.
