If a monthly installment of rent is not received before the 6th day of the month, Tenant agrees to pay as additional rent a charge of late fee of $10.00 for each month that the monthly installment of rent is not received by the 6th day of such month. The purpose of this late fee is to compensate Landlord for the expenses of processing such delinquent account. Rent payments will be applied first to all past due balances of rent and other charges owing under this Lease. The remaining portion if any of such rent payments will be applied to current rent. If there are two or more tenants, Landlord shall have the option of requiring that only one check, cashier's check or money order will be accepted for each monthly installment for rent.

b.      As additional rent, the Tenant shall perform the following duties as long as either of them resides on the Property. The following duties may be modified as duties may be added or deleted by mutual written agreement between the County and City and the Tenant. Failure to perform the following duties on the part of the Tenant shall constitute a material breach by the Tenant under the Lease Agreement and shall entitle the Landlord to terminate this Lease or exercise any other remedy under this lease or available law.  The Tenant shall:

d.      The County and City further agree that, in the event tenant performs additional duties at the specific request of the County and City in connection with the property, or for any other reason in the sole discretion of the County and City, then an adjustment in the payment of rent under this lease agreement may be made, provided that any such modifications shall be effective only if in writing between the County, City and the tenant. It is the intent of the County and City to delegate this responsibility to the Albemarle County Parks and Recreation Department, and its Director.

 

5.      BAD CHECKS. Tenant agrees to pay as additional rent a charge of $15.00 for each check returned for insufficient funds. This charge will be in addition to any late fee, which may be due.

6.      SECURITY DEPOSIT. Tenant agrees to pay the sum of $150.00 as a security deposit. This sum will be due when this Lease is signed by Tenant. Prior to the termination or expiration of this Lease, if Landlord makes any deductions from the security deposit for charges arising under this Lease or by law, Tenant agrees to pay Landlord such sums as may be necessary to offset such deductions to replenish and maintain the security deposit in the amount set forth above. The security deposit will be held by Landlord to secure Tenant's full compliance with the terms of this Lease. Within 30 days after the termination of this Lease, Landlord may apply the security deposit and any interest required by law to the payment of any damages Landlord has suffered due to Tenant's failure to maintain the Premises, to surrender possession of the premises thoroughly cleaned and in good condition (reasonable wear and tear excepted), or to fully comply with the terms of this Lease, and any balance, if any, to unpaid rent. Landlord shall provide Tenant with an itemized accounting, in writing, showing all such deductions. Within this 30-day period, Landlord will give or mail to Tenant the security deposit, with any interest required by law and minus any deductions. To assist Landlord, Tenant shall give Landlord written notice of Tenant's new address before Tenant vacates the Premises. During the term of occupancy under this Lease, if Landlord determines that any deductions are to be made from the security deposit Landlord will give written notice to Tenant of such deduction within 30 days of the time Landlord determines that such deduction should be made. This provision applies only to deductions made 30 days or more before the termination of this Lease. Landlord will maintain itemized records of all security deposit deductions and these records may be inspected by Tenant, his authorized agent or attorney, during normal business hours. However, when two years has passed from the time a deduction was made, Landlord may destroy the record of that deduction. If Landlord sells or otherwise transfers all or any interest in the Premises during the term of this Lease, Tenant agrees that Landlord may transfer the security deposit, plus any interest required by law, to the purchaser who in such event shall be obligated to comply with the provisions of this section.

 

7.      PARKING. Tenant agrees to comply with such parking rules and regulations as Landlord may issue from time to time, and deliver to Tenant; provided that Tenant shall be given a reasonable opportunity to comply with any parking changes made during Tenant's term of occupancy under this Lease.

However, Landlord may require Tenant to return the Premises to its original condition when this Lease terminates or expires. In addition, Landlord may require that any change, alteration or improvement to the Premises will become a permanent part of the Premises which may not be removed upon the termination or expiration of this lease. Such changes or improvements will include, but not be limited to, locks, light fixtures, shutters, built-in shelves or bookcases, wall-to-wall carpeting, flowers and shrubs.

12.  MOVE IN INSPECTION. Within 5 days after Tenant takes possession of the Premises, Landlord agrees to provide Tenant with a list setting forth all of the defects and damages to the Premises, its equipment and appliances.

13.  COVENANTS BY LANDLORD. Landlord covenants and agrees to maintain all electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilating, air conditioning and other facilities and appliances, including elevators, in good and safe working condition; and comply with applicable building and housing code requirements materially affecting health and safety. Landlord's failure to comply with the above requirements will not be grounds for Tenant's termination of this Lease unless Tenant has given Landlord written notice of the defective condition and Landlord has failed to remedy the condition within 21 days. However, Tenant may not terminate the Lease if Tenant, a member of Tenant's family or some other person on the Premises with Tenant's consent intentionally or negligently caused the defective condition. Such defective conditions will be repaired at Tenant's expense. Any termination by Tenant shall be made in accordance with the section of this Lease concerning breach by Landlord.

Tenant covenants and agrees to keep the Premises clean and safe; use all electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilating and air-conditioning facilities and appliances in a reasonable manner; conduct himself or herself, and require guests to conduct themselves, in a manner that will not disturb Tenant's neighbors; and to take care not to intentionally or negligently destroy, damage or remove any part of the Premises, and that he or she will not permit any person to do so. The County and City reserve the right to request the Tenant to remove from the site any personal property that is inconsistent with the scenic natural beauty of the park (inoperable vehicles, appliances, etc.). The County and City reserve the right to request the Tenant to cease any activity that is inconsistent with the park or surrounding neighborhood.  Tenant covenants and agrees to care for, maintain and repair the Premises, equipment, appliances and fixtures. Upon the expiration or termination of this Lease, Tenant agrees to deliver the Premises in good and clean condition, ordinary wear and tear excepted. Tenant agrees to pay the cost of all repairs and cleaning required by wear and tear beyond the ordinary. During the duration of this Lease, Tenant agrees to give Landlord prompt written notice of any defects in the Premises, its equipment, appliances and fixtures. If further damage occurs between the time Tenant learns that a defect exists and the time Landlord learns of such defect. Tenant will be liable for the costs of any repairs of such additional damage, which might have been avoided, had Tenant promptly notified Landlord of the defect. Tenant agrees to pay all costs resulting from the intentional or negligent destruction, damage or removal of any part of the Premises by Tenant or by any of Tenant's guests or other persons on the Premises with Tenant's consent. Tenant further agrees to release, indemnify, protect, defend and hold the County and City harmless from all liability, obligations, losses, claims, demands, damages, actions, suits, proceedings, costs and expenses, including attorney's fees, of any kind or nature whatsoever, whether suffered, made, instituted or asserted by any entity, party or person for any personal injury to or death of any person or persons and for any loss, damage or destruction of the Premises, arising out of, connected with, or resulting directly or indirectly from the negligent or intentional acts of Tenant, Tenant's guests or other persons on the Premises with the consent or permission of Tenant. The foregoing agreement to indemnify shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding the termination of this Agreement. Tenant further agrees to release, indemnify, protect, defend and hold the County and City harmless from all liability, obligations, losses, claims, demands, damages, actions, suits, proceedings, costs and expenses, including attorney's fees, of any kind or nature whatsoever, whether suffered, made, instituted or asserted by any entity, party or person for any personal injury to or death of any person or persons and for any loss, damage or destruction of the Premises, arising out of, connected with, or resulting directly or indirectly from the negligent or intentional acts of Tenant, Tenant's guests or other persons on the Premises with the consent or permission of Tenant. The foregoing agreement to indemnify shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding the termination of this Agreement.

 

15.  TENANT TO CLEAN PREMISES WHEN LEASE ENDS. Upon the termination or expiration of this Lease, Tenant will remove all of Tenant's property from the Premises and deliver possession of the Premises, thoroughly clean and in good condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted, and in compliance with such reasonable conditions as may be set forth in Landlord's rules and regulations. Tenant's compliance with this section is necessary to insure that the Premises will be in good condition for the next tenants to whom Landlord leases the Premises. Tenant will be liable for any damages Landlord may suffer due to Tenant's failure to leave the Premises thoroughly clean and in good condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted.

 

16.  MOVE OUT INSPECTION. Upon the termination or expiration of this Lease, Landlord will inspect the Premises to determine whether Tenant has properly maintained the Premises and has left Premises thoroughly cleaned and in good condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted. Grease accumulation and unreasonable marks, holes, nicks or other injury to walls, ceilings, floors or appliances will not be considered ordinary wear and tear. This inspection will be made to determine what portion of the security deposit will be returned to Tenant and whether Tenant may be liable for damages exceeding the amount of the security deposit. This inspection will be made with 72 hours after the termination of Tenant's occupancy of the Premises. For the purposes of this section, the termination of Tenant's occupancy of the Premises will not be deemed to have occurred until all or substantially all of Tenant's property has been removed from the Premises. Tenant will have the right to be present during this inspection, provided Tenant gives Landlord written notice of Tenant's desire to be present during the inspection. Upon receiving such notice, Landlord will notify Tenant of the time and date when the inspection will be made. However, Tenant's delay in notifying Landlord of Tenant's desire to attend the inspection will not require Landlord to delay making the inspection more than 72 hours after the termination of Tenant's occupancy. If Tenant attends the inspection, an itemized list of damages known to exist at the time of the inspection will be provided to Tenant by Landlord immediately upon the completion of the inspection.

 

17.  ABANDONMENT OF PROPERTY. Any personal property Tenant leaves on the Premises after the termination or expiration of this Lease may be treated by Landlord as abandoned property. Landlord will prepare an itemized list of such property and may immediately remove the property from the Premises and place it in storage for safekeeping for a period not less than one month from the date this Lease terminates and possession of the Premises is delivered to Landlord. Tenant may reclaim the property during this one-month period, provided that tenant pays the cost of its removal and storage. Upon expiration of the one-month period, Landlord will be free to dispose of the property as Landlord sees fit, provided written notice of Landlord's intent to dispose of the property is given to Tenant at least 10 days before such disposal occurs. This notice must be sent to Tenant's last known address, address correction requested. In addition, Landlord must keep the itemized list of Tenant's property for two years after Landlord disposes of that property. Any funds received by Landlord from the disposal of Tenant's property may be applied to Tenant's indebtedness to Landlord for unpaid rent or other damages, including charges for removing, storing and selling the property. Any remaining funds will be treated as security deposit.

 

18.  DAMAGE OR DESTRUCTION OF PREMISES. If, through no fault or negligence of Tenant or Tenant's guest, fire or other cause destroys or damages the Premises to the extent that Tenant's enjoyment is substantially impaired, Tenant may immediately vacate the premises and within 14 days thereafter give written notice to Landlord of Tenant's intention to terminate this Lease. In such cases, the Lease will terminate as of the date of termination of Tenant's occupancy and Landlord will return Tenant's security deposit, any interest required by law, and prepaid rent covering the period after Tenant vacated the Premises - subject to any set off for charges or damages Tenant owes to Landlord. If, through no fault or negligence of Tenant or Tenant's guests, fire or other cause damages the Premises to the extent that Tenant's enjoyment is somewhat impaired, though not substantially impaired, Landlord will have a reasonable period of time in which to repair the Premises. Landlord's duty to repair will not arise until Tenant gives Landlord written notice of the damage to the Premises. If Landlord fails to repair the Premises within a reasonable period of time after having received written notice from Tenant, Tenant will be entitled to a reduction in rent for that period of time beginning 30 days after notice was given to Landlord and ending on the date Landlord successfully repairs the Premises. In any dispute concerning Tenant’s right to terminate this Lease or receive a rent reduction, Tenant will be required to prove that the condition of the Premises justifies such relief.

 

19.  BODILY INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE. Landlord is not an insurer of Tenant's person or property. Except to the extent provided by law, Landlord will not be liable to Tenant for any bodily injury or property damage suffered by Tenant or Tenant's guest.

 

20.  RULES AND REGULATIONS. Tenant agrees to comply with Landlord's reasonable and non-discriminatory rules and regulations which concern the use and occupancy of the Premises, which intend to promote the convenience, safety or welfare to tenants or preserve Landlord's property from abusive conduct. Landlord agrees to give Tenant reasonable notice of any new rules or regulations before enforcing such rules and regulations against Tenant.

 

21.  EARLY TERMINATION OF OCCUPANCY. Tenant will not be released from liability for all rent and other charges due under this lease unless Landlord signs a written statement on which Landlord agrees to release tenant from such liability.

 

22.  EARLY TERMINATION OF LEASE BY MILITARY PERSONNEL. If Tenant is a member of the United States armed forces and (i) receives orders for a permanent change of station to depart 50 miles or more (radius) from the Premises or (ii) is prematurely and involuntarily discharged or relieved from active duty with the United States aimed forces, Tenant may terminate this Lease by serving on Landlord a written notice of termination. This notice must state the date when termination will be effective and that date shall not be less than 30 days after the date Landlord receives the notice. In addition, the termination date shall not be more than 60 days prior to the date of departure necessary for Tenant to comply with the official orders or any supplemental instructions for interim training or duty prior to the transfer. Tenant's written notice of termination must be accompanied by a copy of the official orders. If Tenant exercises this right to terminate this Lease, Tenant shall be obligated for rent prorated to the date of termination. Rent for the final month or portion thereof shall be due on the first day of such month. On account of Tenant's early termination of this Lease, Landlord may require Tenant to pay liquidated damages as follows:

a.       If Tenant has completed less than 6 months of the tenancy under this Lease as of the effective date of termination, liquidated damages may be no greater than one-month's rent.

b.      If Tenant has completed at least 6 months but less than 12 months of the tenancy under this Lease as of the effective date of termination, liquidated damages may be no greater than one half of one month's rent. Any amount owed; as liquidated damages by Tenant shall be due on the first day of the month in which the effective termination date occurs. This section shall not relieve Tenant of any other liabilities, which have accrued as of the date of termination.

 

23.  TERMINATION, RENEWAL OR EXTENSION OF LEASE. This Lease will automatically terminate at the end of the lease term on the date on which Tenant's occupancy ends. In addition, Landlord may terminate this lease for any reason by giving at least thirty (30) days written notice to Tenant. The termination of this Lease will terminate Tenant's right to occupancy but it will not terminate any claims Tenant or Landlord may have arising out of events occurring during the Lease term or during any holdover by Tenant. No agreement renewing or extending this Lease will be effective unless that agreement is in writing and signed by Tenant and Landlord. If Tenant remains in possession of the Premises after the lease term is terminated or expires and Landlord consents to such holdover but does not enter into a written agreement extending this Lease or substituting a new written lease, Tenant shall have a month to month lease subject to termination by either party upon 30 days notice. The monthly rent during such holdover period shall be at the same rate as under this Lease or as otherwise agreed in writing.

 

24.  ASSIGNMENT OR SUBLET. Tenant will not assign this Lease or sublet the Premises without Landlord's prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Tenant agrees to pay Landlord a $ N/A fee if Tenant assigns or sublets the Premises, or any part thereof. No assignment or sublet will release Tenant from continuing liability for the full performance of this Lease unless Landlord signs a written statement clearly releasing Tenant from such liability.

 

25.  BREACH BY TENANT. If (a) Tenant fails to pay rent within five days after the date when due, (b) Tenant commits a material breach of this Lease, (c) Tenant denies Landlord's exercise of any rights under this Lease or arising by law, (d) legal proceedings are begun by or against Tenant to levy upon or dispose of Tenants leasehold interest in the Premises, or (e) the Premises is used by Tenant or others for any illegal purposes, Landlord will have the right to sue for rent and to enter and take possession through legal proceedings or, if the Premises is abandoned, to enter and take possession by any lawful means. In addition, Landlord will have the right to pursue all other remedies available, including a claim for damages. If Landlord pursues any such remedies (and regardless of whether such remedies are prosecuted to judgment), Tenant will be liable as follows:

a.       For all past due rent and other charges

b.      For all additional rent (future rent) that would have accrued until the expiration of the term of occupancy under this Lease or until a new lease term begins, provided (i) that this will not affect Landlord's duty to minimize the damages by making reasonable efforts to enter into a new lease as soon as practical, and (ii) that if Landlord obtains a judgment for future rent, Landlord shall apply as a credit towards that judgment all funds received by Landlord as rent for the Premises for those months for which the judgment for future rent was awarded.

c.       For all expenses Landlord may incur for cleaning, painting and repairing the Premises due to Tenant's failure to leave the Premises thoroughly clean and in good condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted;

d.      For any court costs and reasonable attorneys fees incurred by Landlord (i) in collecting rent, other charges or damages, and (ii) in obtaining possession of the Premises;

e.       For a collection fee equal to 25% of the judgment amount for rent, damages, court costs and attorneys fees. Tenant understands and agrees that this amount represents damages Landlord will be likely to incur in efforts to obtain a judgment against Tenant (including time and effort spent in case investigation, correspondence, filling suit, discussions with lawyers, case preparation and court attendance) and to collect such a judgment. If Tenant has breached the Lease by failing to pay rent when due, Landlord shall give a written notice to Tenant stating that the Lease will terminate within 5 days if the rent is not paid. If Tenant fails to pay the rent within that 5 day period, Landlord may terminate the Lease and proceed to obtain possession of the Premises by filing an unlawful detainer proceeding. In that proceeding, Landlord may pursue a claim for rent and other damages. In connection with breaches other than failure to pay rent, if a material noncompliance with this Lease exists or if there is a violation materially affecting health and safety, Landlord may serve Tenant with a written notice stating that acts or omissions constituting the breach and stating (i) that the Lease will terminate upon a date not less than 30 days after Tenant receives the notice unless the breach is remedied within 21 days, and (ii) that the lease will terminate as set forth in the notice. If the breach is remedial by repairs or the payment of damages and Tenant adequately remedies the breach within 21 days or such longer period of time as Landlord may allow, the Lease shall not terminate. On the other hand, if the breach is not remedial, Landlord's written notice to Tenant may state the acts and omissions constituting the breach and state that the lease will terminate upon a specific date, which date may not be less than 30 days after Tenant receives the notice.

 

26.  BREACH BY LANDLORD. If Landlord (a) commits a material breach of this Lease, or (b) fails to a substantial extent to comply with any laws with which Landlord must comply and which materially affect Tenant's health and safety, Tenant may give written notice to Landlord identifying the acts and conditions on the Premises concerning Landlord's breach and stating that this lease will terminate upon a specific date (which must be 30 days or more from the date Landlord receives the notice) unless Landlord remedies the breach within 21 days. If Landlord remedies the breach within that 21 day period, this Lease will not be subject to termination by Tenant in that instance. Tenant will not have the right to terminate this Lease because of conditions caused by the intentional or negligent acts of Tenant or persons on the Premises with Tenant's consent.

 

27.  RENT WITHHOLDING. Tenant may not withhold rent because of conditions on the Premises that Landlord is required to repair unless Tenant has given Landlord written notice of the condition and Landlord has failed to successfully repair the condition within a reasonable period of time. If Tenant withholds rent because Landlord has breached the Lease, Tenant must immediately give Landlord a second written notice of the breach and of any conditions of the Premises which Landlord is required to remedy or repair and must state that rent is being withheld for such reasons. If Landlord then sues Tenant for possession of the Premises or for withheld rent, Tenant must promptly pay the rent to the court, which will hold the rent until it decides what portion, if any, should be paid to Landlord. If conditions exist which Landlord is required to remedy and which creates a fire hazard or serious threat to the health or safety of Tenant, Tenant may file an action in a court of competent jurisdiction to terminate the Lease, to require Landlord to repair the Premises, or to obtain other relief. In such an action, Tenant may pay rent to the court to be held until Tenant's action is decided. If Tenant withholds rent or pays rent into court under this section and the court finds (a) that Tenant has acted in bad faith, (b) that Tenant, Tenant's family or guests have caused the conditions or have refused unreasonably to allow Landlord or Landlord's written notice of the condition, Tenant will be liable for Landlord's reasonable costs, including costs for time spent, court costs, any repair costs due to Tenant's violation of the Lease, and attorneys fees.

 

28.  NOTICES. All notices in writing required or permitted by this Lease may be delivered in person, or sent by mail (postage prepaid) to Landlord, Tenant or Agent at such party's address, as set forth above or at such other address as a party may designate from time to time by notice given in accordance with the terms of this section.

 

29.  HEADINGS. The headings of the sections of this Lease are inserted for convenience only and do not alter or amend the provisions that follow such headings.

 

30.  GOVERNING LAW. This Lease is entered into and shall be construed under the laws of the State of Virginia.

 

31.  SEVERABILITY. Any provision of this Lease which is prohibited by, or unlawful or unenforceable under, Virginia law shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition without invalidating the remaining provisions of this Lease.

 

32.  FAILURE TO ENFORCE LEASE NOT A WAIVER. Landlord's waiver of a breach by Tenant shall not be interpreted as a waiver of any subsequent breach or noncompliance, and this lease shall continue in full force and effect.

 

33.  AMENDMENTS. This lease may not be amended or modified except by prior written consent of the Landlord. All amendments or modifications shall be in writing and signed by both parties.

 

34.  ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This lease and Addendum attached hereto shall constitute the full and complete agreement between the parties, and no other writings or statements (other than amendments or modifications pursuant to Section 32) shall be of any consequence or have any legal effect.
