NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the Expanded Premises and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Landlord and Tenant hereby agree as follows:

3. Extension of Lease Term. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Lease and subject to the satisfaction of the Condition Precedent, Landlord and Tenant agree that the Lease Expiration Date shall be extended such that the Lease Term shall expire on August 31, 2030 (the “New Lease Expiration Date”), unless sooner terminated in accordance with the terms of the Lease. The period from the Expansion Date through the New Lease Expiration Date shall be referred to herein as the “Expanded Premises Term.” Tenant acknowledges that Tenant has no option or right to extend the Lease Term beyond the Expanded Premises Term, except as expressly provided in Section 2.4 of the Original Lease (provided that such option may only be exercised with respect to the entire Expanded Premises and not a part of the Expanded Premises).

Tenant hereby agrees that the Additional Premises shall be taken “as is”, “with all faults”, “without any representations or warranties,” except as provided in this Section and the Tenant Work Letter attached as Exhibit B to this Second Amendment. Tenant hereby acknowledges that it has had an opportunity to investigate and inspect the condition of the Additional Premises and the suitability of same for Tenant’s purposes, and Tenant does hereby waive and disclaim any objection to, cause of action based upon, or claim that its obligations hereunder should be reduced or limited because of the condition of the Additional Premises or the suitability of same for Tenant’s purposes.

As required by Section 1938 of the California Civil Code, Landlord hereby states as follows: “A Certified Access Specialist (CASp) can inspect the subject premises and determine whether the subject premises comply with all of the applicable construction-related accessibility standards under state law. Although state law does not require a CASp inspection of the subject premises, the commercial property owner or lessor may not prohibit the lessee or tenant from obtaining a CASp inspection of the subject premises for the occupancy or potential occupancy of the lessee or tenant, if requested by the lessee or tenant. The parties shall mutually agree on the arrangements for the time and manner of the CASp inspection, the payment of the fee for the CASp inspection, and the cost of making any repairs necessary to correct violations of construction-related accessibility standards within the premises.” In furtherance of the foregoing, Landlord and Tenant hereby agree that any CASp inspection requested by Tenant shall be conducted by a CASp inspector approved by Landlord at Tenant’s sole cost and expense and any repairs necessary to correct violations of construction-related accessibility standards within the Expanded Premises disclosed by such inspection shall be performed by Tenant at its sole cost and expense.

Tenant shall nevertheless at all times remain fully responsible and liable for the payment of rent and the performance and observance of all of Tenant’s obligations under the Lease.
13. Estoppel. Tenant hereby certifies and acknowledges, that as of the date hereof (a) Landlord is not in default in any respect under the Lease, (b) Landlord is currently holding a Security Deposit in the amount of $134,956.54 under the Lease, and (c) there are no offsets against rent payable under the Lease.

4.4.3 Inspection by Landlord. Landlord shall have the right to inspect the Expanded Premises Improvements at all times during construction, provided however, that Landlord’s failure to inspect the Expanded Premises Improvements shall in no event constitute a waiver of any of Landlord’s rights hereunder nor shall Landlord’s inspection of the Expanded Premises Improvements constitute Landlord’s approval of the same. Should Landlord disapprove any portion of the Expanded Premises Improvements, Landlord shall timely notify Tenant in writing of such disapproval and shall specify the items disapproved. Any defects or deviations in, and/or disapproval by Landlord of, the Expanded Premises Improvements shall be rectified by Tenant at no expense to Landlord, provided however, that in the event Landlord determines that a defect or deviation exists or disapproves of any matter in connection with any portion of the Expanded Premises Improvements and such defect, deviation or matter might adversely affect the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilating and air conditioning or life-safety systems of the Premises, Landlord may take such action as Landlord deems necessary, at Tenant’s expense and without incurring any liability on Landlord’s part, to correct any such defect, deviation and/or matter, including, without limitation, causing the cessation of performance of the construction of the Expanded Premises Improvements until such time as the defect, deviation and/or matter is corrected to Landlord’s satisfaction.

Within ten (10) days after completion of construction of the Expanded Premises Improvements, Tenant shall cause a Notice of Completion to be recorded in the office of the Recorder of the county in which the Expanded Premises are located in accordance with applicable laws, and shall furnish a copy thereof to Landlord upon such recordation. If Tenant fails to do so, Landlord may execute and file the same on behalf of Tenant as Tenant’s agent for such purpose, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. At the conclusion of construction, (i) Tenant shall cause the Architect and Contractor (A) to update the Approved Working Drawings as necessary to reflect all changes made to the Approved Working Drawings during the course of construction, (B) to certify to the best of their knowledge that the “record-set” of as-built drawings are true and correct, which certification shall survive the expiration or termination of the Lease, and (C) to deliver to Landlord two (2) sets of copies of such record set of drawings within ninety (90) days following issuance of a certificate of occupancy for the Expanded Premises, (ii) Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a copy of all warranties, guaranties, and operating manuals and information relating to the improvements, equipment, and systems in the Expanded Premises, and (iii) Tenant shall deliver to Landlord the original signed permit card, indicating final approval by all applicable departments.

5.3 Time of the Essence in This Tenant Work Letter. Unless otherwise indicated, all references herein to a “number of days” shall mean and refer to calendar days. In all instances where Tenant is required to approve or deliver an item, if no written notice of approval is given or the item is not delivered within the stated time period, at Landlord’s sole option, at the end of such period the item shall automatically be deemed approved or delivered by Tenant and the next succeeding time period shall commence.
