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.

     C.   Assignor desires to assign its interest in the Lease to Assignee, and
Assignee desires to assume the obligations of Assignor under the Lease as more
particularly set forth below.

     D.   Landlord is willing to consent to such assignment and assumption
provided Assignor confirms its continuing obligations under the Lease, and any
extension thereof and any amendment thereto, by so acknowledging herein.

     E.   The parties desire to enter into this Agreement to amend the Lease to
reflect the foregoing and to make certain other amendments to the Lease as more
particularly set forth below.

     NOW, THEREFORE, it is agreed by and among Landlord, Assignor and Assignee,
for valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby
acknowledged, as follows:

     1.   ASSIGNMENT AND ASSUMPTION.  Assignor hereby grants, conveys, transfers
and assigns to Assignee all of Assignor's rights, title and interest in, to and
under the Lease from and after the Effective Date.  Assignee hereby accepts the
foregoing assignment and agrees to assume, pay, perform and discharge all of the
agreements and obligations of Assignor arising under the Lease, including any
and all obligations which have accrued prior to the Effective Date.  From and
after the Effective Date, Assignee shall be deemed the Tenant under the Lease as
defined in the Lease.  The foregoing assignment shall not operate to release
Assignor from liability for any obligations of Assignor under the Lease now or
hereafter arising, and Assignor shall remain liable for each and every one of
such obligations.  Landlord hereby consents to the


foregoing assignment of the Lease from Assignor to Assignee, and waives, for
the purposes of this Agreement and the foregoing assignment only, Assignor's
full compliance with the terms of Article XV of the Original Lease.

Assignor's continuing liability for each and every obligation of Tenant under
the Lease, as hereby further amended, Assignor hereby absolutely and
unconditionally guarantees to Landlord, its successors and assigns, the prompt
and full payment of all rent and all other payments to be made by Tenant under
the Lease, and the full performance and observance by Tenant of all of the other
terms, covenants, conditions and agreements therein provided to be performed and
observed by Tenant, for which the Assignor shall be jointly and severally liable
with Tenant.  Assignor agrees that in the event of a default by Tenant under the
Lease beyond the applicable notice and cure period, if any, Landlord may proceed
against Assignor before, after and simultaneously with proceeding against
Tenant.  Assignor's agreement hereunder shall not be terminated, affected or
impaired in any manner by reason of: (a) the assertion by Landlord against
Tenant of any of the rights or remedies reserved to Landlord pursuant to the
provisions of the Lease; (b) the commencement of summary or other proceedings
against Tenant; (c) the failure of Landlord to enforce any of its rights against
Tenant; or (d) the granting by Landlord of any extensions of time to Tenant.
Assignor's agreement hereunder shall be absolute and unconditional and shall be
in full force and effect with respect to any extension, renewal, amendment,
addition, assignment, sublease, transfer or other modification of the Lease,
whether or not Assignor shall have knowledge or have been notified of or agreed
or consented thereto.  If Landlord at any time is compelled to take action, by
legal proceedings or otherwise, to enforce or compel compliance with the terms
hereof, Assignor shall, in addition to any other rights or remedies to which
Landlord may be entitled hereunder or as a matter of law or in equity, pay to
Landlord all costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, incurred or expended
by Landlord in connection therewith.  In the event the Lease is disaffirmed by a
Trustee in Bankruptcy for Tenant, Assignor agrees that it shall, at the election
of Landlord, either assume the Lease and perform all of the covenants, terms and
conditions of Tenant thereunder or enter into a new lease, which new lease shall
be in form and substance identical to the Lease, except that the renewal options
set forth in Section 1.2 of the Lease shall be available to Assignor.  All
duties and obligations of Assignor hereunder shall be binding upon the
successors and assigns of Assignor.  Assignor agrees that, to the extent that
the Tenant makes a payment or payments to the Landlord or the Landlord receives
any proceeds of collateral, which payment or payments or any part thereof are
subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside
or otherwise is required to be repaid to the Tenant, its estate, trustee,
receiver or any other party, including, without limitation, under any bankruptcy
law, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause, then to the extent of
such payment or repayment, the obligations of Tenant or part thereof which has
been paid, reduced or satisfied by such amount shall be reinstated and continued
in full force and effect as of the date such initial payment, reduction or
satisfaction occurred.

     3.   EXTENSION OPTION.  The final grammatical paragraph of Section 1.2 of
the Lease is hereby deleted, and the following is hereby inserted in place

     The options in this Section 1.2 are personal to Select Comfort Direct
     Corporation, and an option for a Renewal Term, whether or not
     exercised, shall be of no effect if Select Comfort Direct Corporation
     assigns this lease.

     4.   SECURITY DEPOSIT.  Section 3.6 of the Lease (as amended by Section 5
of the Second Amendment) is hereby deleted, and the following is hereby inserted
in place thereof:


     Section 3.6   Security Deposit.  Select Comfort Corporation has paid a
     security deposit in the amount of $257,833.00 (the "Security
     Deposit").  The Security Deposit shall be held by Landlord as security
     for the performance by Tenant of Tenant's covenants and obligations
     under this Lease.  Such deposit shall not be considered an advance
     payment of Base Rent or Additional Rent or a measure of Landlord's
     damages in case of default by Tenant.  If the shareholders' equity as
     shown on Select Comfort Corporation's consolidated balance sheet as of
     the end of any fiscal quarter of the company ending prior to May 31,
     1999, exceeds $25,000,000.00, the amount of the Security Deposit shall
     be reduced to $150,000.00.  If the shareholders' equity as shown on
     Select Comfort Corporation's consolidated balance sheet as of the end
     of any fiscal quarter of the company ending after May 31, 1999,
     exceeds $25,000,000.00, the amount of the Security Deposit shall be
     reduced to $100,000.00.  Landlord shall refund the appropriate amount
     to Select Comfort Corporation promptly upon being furnished evidence
     reasonably satisfactory to Landlord that the shareholders' equity as
     shown on Select Comfort Corporation's consolidated balance sheet is in
     excess of $25,000.000.00.  Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default
     by Tenant, Landlord may, from time to time, without prejudice to any
     other remedy, use the Security Deposit to the extent necessary to make
     good any arrearages of Base Rent, Additional Rent and any other
     damage, injury , expense or liability caused to Landlord by such Event
     of Default.  Following any such application of the Security Deposit,
     Tenant shall pay to Landlord on demand the amount so applied in order
     to restore the Security Deposit to its original amount or to such
     reduced amount as may then be applicable as provided above.  Provided
     there exists no Event of Default hereunder, any remaining balance of
     the Security Deposit shall be returned by Landlord to Tenant upon
     expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.  If Landlord
     transfers its interest in the Demised Premises during the term of this
     Lease, Landlord shall assign the Security Deposit to the transferee
     and thereafter shall have no further liability for the return of the
     Security Deposit.  Landlord shall pay interest on the Security Deposit
     at the rate of six percent per annum, payable semi-annually on July 1
     and January 1 of each year during the term, except that, if there is
     an uncured Event of Default hereunder, interest shall be added to the
     Security Deposit.
