  • 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.

All parties should review the original lease agreement to see if there are any restrictions on subletting or assigning the premises.

herein contained, and for other good and valuable consideration, the Parties
hereby agree as follows:

on the Effective Date.

        2. No Surrender of Sublease Premises. On the Effective Date, Subtenant
shall not be required to surrender the Sublease Premises, notwithstanding the

to comply with any obligations of Subtenant under the Sublease to surrender the
Sublease Premises in a particular condition upon expiration or termination of

extent, the remainder of this Agreement and the application of such provision to
other persons or circumstances, other than those to which it is held invalid,
shall not be affected thereby and shall be enforced to the furthest extent
permitted by law, provided that the invalidity of such provision does not
materially affect the benefits accruing to any party hereto.

accordance with the laws of the state of California, without regard to its
conflicts of laws rules.

        8. Survival of Sublease Obligations. This Agreement merely changes the
termination or expiration date of the Sublease, and does not otherwise affect
the obligations of the Parties under the Sublease. Accordingly, all covenants
and obligations of the Parties which, under the terms of the Sublease, survive
the expiration or earlier termination of the Sublease, shall continue to do so,
notwithstanding the existence of this Agreement.

        9. Miscellaneous. This Agreement may be executed in any number of
counterparts which together shall constitute the Agreement. This Agreement and
the terms and provisions hereof shall inure to the benefit of and be binding
upon the heirs, successors and assigns of the Parties. In the event of a
conflict between the terms and provisions of this Agreement and those contained
in the Sublease, the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall control.
