Article 10 SUBLETTING, LEASE-TRANSFER, CAPITAL INVESTED

a.) Subletting
Any whole or partial subletting of the premises by the Lessee is expressly forbidden, the leased premises form an indivisible whole as is the shared intention of the parties.
________________________________________
The Lessee shall however, be able to propose to the Lessor without any obligation for the latter to accept, a sublet by one of its [amended] companies other than the [] group.

In the event that a sublease is accepted, the lessee remains the sole party bound to the Lessor in terms of fulfilling the obligations of this lease. The Sublessee cannot have any supplementary deed between him/her and the Lessor in addition to deed for the principal tenant.

Furthermore, in the event of partial subleases, the premises form an indivisible whole as is the shared intention of the parties, whereby the sublets shall not be enforced by the Lessor. The Lessee conducts his business, at his own risks and perils within a sublet situation. The Lessee pledges to bring to the attention of all sublessees and stipulate as in any subletting deed whatever it may be, that the Lessor mentioned herein, does not intend in any event to have any legal ties with the sublessees and the latter shall expressly relinquish any action or deed which runs counter to the Lessor, notably the renewal of the sublease.

b.) Lease-Transfer
The Lessee shall not be able to give up/transfer his right to lease – in entirety or in part, without the express, written consent of the Lessor, except if the lease is transferred with the business assets.

The lessee shall not be able to substitute either persons or institutions for the real-estate which is to let notably via free-takeover of the business assets.
Any transfer that is agreed without regard to this article may bring about the termination of the lease if the Lessor so desires.

Besides, the assigner will act as guarantor conjointly and in solidarity with the transferee and all successive transferees for the payment of rents, extra charges as well as all compensation for occupancy and by and large the fulfilment of all the clauses and conditions of the lease which are not open to discussion or division.

The transfer shall be recorded by notarial deed, save any special dispensation by the Lessor, for which an original of the transfer deed shall be presented without fees to the lessor to serve as a writ of execution for the transferees.

c.) Capital Invested
In the event that the Lessee invests capital in a business asset that he/she makes use of in the leased premises said company shall have a direct commitment to the Lessor for the fulfilment of the conditions of this lease so that the Lessor may exercise all his rights and actions directly in relation to the company, failure to do so would risk the termination of the lease if the Lessor so desires.
________________________________________
The Lessor can require from each partner, for his benefit, the subscription to a joint and personal pledge or to a security for the fulfilment of the conditions of this lease. The company benefiting from the investment must make the deed known in accordance with article 1690 of the civil code, unless express exemption is granted by a notarial deed.

d.) Right of Option
In the event that the right to lease is to be transferred – the Lessor shall benefit from a right of option, allowing him/her to take back the premises free from occupants, or to substitute the transferee for one of his choice for the transfer deed provided that the transferee chosen by him/her offers to pay the assignor an identical price to that proposed to the other interested candidate. This right shall remain binding for subsequent interested parties.
To allow the Lessor to exercise his/her right of option, the Lessee shall inform the Lessor of his/her intention to transfer the right to lease, by registered letter with recorded delivery.

The notification made by the Lessee must indicate, failure to do so would risk making the notification void, the name and the address of the acquiring candidate, the amount and methods of payment of the price as well as the conditions, place and day of the transfer.

The Lessor must inform the Lessee of his decision within a timeframe of 2 months starting from this notification by registered and recorded letter.
In the event that the Lessor decides to use his right to stand in for or substitute the transferee with any transferee of his choice, the transfer shall be put in order within a month, starting from the date that the Lessor makes his decision known.

Article 11 OCCUPANCY- USE

The Lessee is bound to:

Article 14 REPORT ON NATURAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL RISKS

Under article L124-5 of the environment code “the purchasers or tenants of real estate situated in zones covered by a prevention plan for technological risks or by a prevention plan for foreseeable natural risks, stipulated or approved, or in earthquake zones defined by the decree from the Council of State, are informed by the vendor or the Lessor of the existence of risks outlined by this plan or decree. For that purpose a risk report on natural and technological risks has been drawn up from the information made available by the prefect (â[]¦)”.

The Lessor informs the Lessee that the premises currently leased find themselves in a zone which falls under the requirement for information on natural and technological risks by prefectural decree and that a prevention plan for risks has been sent to the commune in which the currently leased premises are located.

Thus, a risk report was drawn up by the Lessor on 1st February [] included in the annex (see annex 1).
The Lessor declares, furthermore, that to his/her knowledge, the building – subject of this lease has not undergone any accident give rise to insurance compensations for natural disaster risks (article L125-2 of the insurance code) or technological risks (article L 128-21 of the code of commerce).

Article 15 ENERGY PERFOMANCE TEST

An energy performance test in principle must be included in any lease deed (including commercial leases), starting from 1st July 2[]7.

The application of this measure appears for the moment, to be problematic: The decree describing the energy test model that should be included in each commercial lease has not yet been published. Only the energy test models for the sale of buildings (including commercial and tertiary) as well as the test model for residential leases have been published. We shall note that in residential affairs, the energy test model for the sale of buildings is similar to the energy test model for residential leases.

As soon as a model has been determined, the Lessor pledges to produce the energy test for the Lessee.

Article 16 CANCELLATION CLAUSE

It has been expressly agreed that in the event of the conditions herein not being met, or if one of them is not met, if one month after a warning has been issued and if it has not proved fruitful, the lease will be rightfully terminated as the Lessor sees fit – without the requirement to complete judicial formalities. The Lessor shall be able to obtain the eviction from the leased premises by a simple order from the presiding judge at the High Court. The Lessor reserves the right to use all rights for due rents, damages, fees without affecting his right to enter at any time, under any circumstances, as the referee of any action that he may find useful to take. In the event of non-payment of one instalment by the deadline, the Lessor will be entitled to evict the tenant via the same means under the same conditions but, in this case, only if after a month the order to pay has proved fruitless.

Any offer of payment or fulfilment after the expiry of the aforementioned period will be seen as null and void and shall not obstruct the termination required by the Lessor.

In the event that, after the termination of the lease, the premises are not restored to the Lessor at the right date, free from any occupancy, occupancy compensation due from the Lessee or his assignees up until the point of restoration will be equal to for each delayed day 2% (two per cent) of the total quarterly rent including tax with the right for the Lessor to claim damages. The aforementioned compensation for occupancy is understood to exclude duties and taxes, duties and taxes in addition to the cost for the debtor of the aforementioned compensation.

Article 17 TOLERANCE

No tolerance on the part of the Lessor, no matter how frequently or for how long, can give special rights in favour of the Lessee. The Lessor and his intermediary can always end this. Any dispensation from obligations which fall to the Lessee in terms of this lease, the law or use can only occur with the prior, express and written consent of the Lessor.

Article 18 FEES

The lessee shall pay all the fees, duties as well as any further consequential costs (see Annex).

The Lessee or his assignees shall reimburse the Lessor with the fees or extrajudicial deeds or other legal fees, caused by a breach of the clauses and conditions herein.

In the event that the Lessor decides to register the lease, stamp duty will be fully payable by the Lessee.

All duties and taxes pertaining to any amounts owed by the Lessee to the Lessor within this period and their consequences will be payable by the Lessee.
