13.TRUTHFULNESS OF RENTAL APPLICATION: Tenant represents and warrants that the statements made on the Rental Application for this Lease are true and complete in all material respects. Tenant acknowledges that all representations on the Application are material representations that have been relied upon by the Landlord as an inducement to the rent the Premises to the Tenant. If any representation made by Tenant in the Application is false or misleading as to any material fact, Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease, to hold Tenant liable for any and all damages to the Premises, to exercise all legal and equitable rights and remedies, and to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. Tenant shall provide Landlord or Landlord’s Agent with current home and work telephone numbers at start of Lease and at any time during this Lease that such numbers change.

14.SECURITY DEPOSIT NOTICE AND RECEIPT: The Tenant shall, upon execution of this Lease, deposit with the Landlord the sum indicated above [See Section 7], which shall not exceed two months rent, to be held in an escrow account to ensure full compliance by Tenant of all provisions of this Lease, including but not limited to Tenant obligations with respect to damages caused by the Tenant, Tenant's family, agents, employees, guests, other invitees or pets. The Landlord hereby acknowledges receiving from the Tenant payment of the Security Deposit referred to in Section 7. Within 30 days after Landlord receives the security deposit, the Landlord shall deposit the funds into an interest bearing account devoted exclusively to security deposits, and thereafter maintain the security deposit in a federally insured financial institution that does business in the State of Maryland.

At the end of the tenancy, the security deposit, or any portion thereof, may be withheld for unpaid rent, damage due to breach of lease or for damage by the Tenant or the Tenant's family, agents, employees, guests or invitees in excess of ordinary wear and tear to the leased premises, common areas, major appliances, and furnishings owned by the Landlord. The Tenant is hereby advised that Tenant has the right to be present when the Landlord or the Land- lord's agent inspects the premises in order to determine if any damage was done to the premises, if the Tenant notifies the Landlord by certified mail of the Tenant's intention to move, the date of moving, and the Tenant's new address. The notice to be furnished by the Tenant to the Landlord shall be mailed at least 15 days prior to the date of moving. Upon receipt of the Tenant’s notice, the Landlord shall notify the Tenant by certified mail of the time and date when the premises are to be inspected. The date of inspection shall occur within five days before or five days after the date of moving as designated in the Ten- ant's notice. Failure by the Landlord to comply with this requirement forfeits the right of the Landlord to withhold any part of the security deposit for damages, although Landlord may retain the right to pursue other legal remedies against the Tenant. The Landlord’s application of the Security Deposit shall not be the Landlord’s sole remedy in the event of the Tenant’s default if the costs of repairs, replacements or other damages exceed the Security Deposit, the Tenant shall pay for such excess costs. During the tenancy, the Tenant may not use the Security Deposit for any payment of rent or other obligations, and the Tenant shall not use the Security Deposit as the last month's rent.

The security deposit is not liquidated damages and may not be forfeited to the Landlord for breach of the rental agreement, except in the amount that the Landlord is actually damaged by the Tenant’s breach. In calculating damages for lost future rents any amount of rents received by the Landlord for the premises during the remainder if any, of the Tenant's term, shall reduce the damages by a like amount.

If Landlord withholds any portion of the security deposit for damages as described above, the Landlord must present by first-class mail directed to the last known address of the Tenant, within 45 days after the termination of the tenancy, a written list of the damages claimed by Landlord together with a statement of the cost actually incurred. If the Landlord fails to comply with this requirement, the Landlord forfeits the right to withhold any part of the security deposit for damages.

Within 45 days after the end of the tenancy, the Landlord shall return the security deposit to the Tenant together with simple interest which has accrued in the amount of 3 percent per annum, less any damages rightfully withheld. Interest shall accrue at six -month intervals from the day the Tenant gives the Landlord the security deposit. Interest is not compounded. Interest shall be payable only on security deposits of $50 or more. If the Landlord, without a reasonable basis, fails to return any part of the security deposit, plus accrued interest, within 45 days after the termination of the tenancy, the Tenant has an action for up to threefold of the withheld amount, plus reasonable attorney's fees.

If any security deposit is paid by Tenant [See Section 7], Tenant is hereby notified of the following:

(1)At the commencement of the tenancy, if the Tenant specifically requests by certified mail within 15 days of the Tenant's occupancy, the Tenant has right to have the dwelling unit inspected by the Landlord in the Tenant's presence for the purpose of making a written list of damages that exist at the commence- ment of the tenancy;

(2)At the conclusion of the tenancy, if the Tenant notifies the Landlord by certified mail at least 15 days prior to the date of the Tenant's intended move, of the Tenant's intention to move, the date of moving, and the Tenant's new address, the Tenant has the right to be present when the Landlord inspects the premises in order to determine if any damage was done to the premises; if Tenant provides such notice, the Landlord has the obligation to conduct the final move-out inspection within 5 days before or after the Tenant's stated date of intended moving, and the Landlord has an obligation to notify the Tenant in writing, by certified mail, of the date and time of the final move-out inspection;

(3)The Tenant has a right to receive, by first class mail, delivered to the last known address of the Tenant, a written list of the charges against the security deposit claimed by the Landlord and the actual costs, within 45 days after the termination of the tenancy;

(4)The Landlord has an obligation to return any unused portion of the security deposit, by first class mail, ad-

dressed to the Tenant's last known address, within 45 days after the termination of the tenancy; and

(5)The failure of the Landlord to comply with the security deposit law may result in the Landlord being liable to the Tenant for a penalty of up to 3 times the security deposit wrongfully withheld, plus reasonable attorney's fees.

15. SURRENDER OF PREMISES AND MOVE -OUT INSPECTION: The Tenant shall, upon termination of this Lease, surrender the Premises and all fixtures and equipment of the Landlord in good, clean and functioning condition, ordinary wear and tear excepted. The move-out inspection shall be made to determine whether there are any damages to the Premises by the Tenant and whether the Tenant may be liable for damages exceeding the amount of the Security Deposit.

Prior to this inspection, the Tenant shall:

1.Ensure that the Premises are thoroughly cleaned, including the stove, refrigerator and windows, remove all personal property of Tenant as well as trash from the Premises; clean gutters and downspouts, cut grass and remove leaves as necessary;

2.Have carpets cleaned and deodorized by a professional company acceptable to the Landlord and provide a paid receipt;

3.Eliminate any other household pests from the interior of the Premises, including but not limited to fleas, ticks, roaches, ants and rodents;

4.Have the Premises professionally treated for fleas and ticks and provide a paid receipt, if pets have been present.

Within twenty four (24) hours after vacating the Premises, the Tenant shall return to the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent all keys, garage door openers, passes and documents, including all provided appliance manuals and Community Association documents. Failure to comply will be cause to charge the Tenant for changing the locks and/or the cost of replacing the Community Association documents.

If the Tenant does not accomplish such cleaning, trash removal, exterminating and return of Landlord’s property above, Landlord or Landlord’s Agent may have such items completed at the Tenant's expense, and the Tenant hereby agrees to reimburse the Landlord for such expense. The costs and expenses referred to above shall be considered damages due to breach of Lease in excess of ordinary wear and tear. Any property which is left on or at the Prem- ises after the termination of the tenancy shall be considered to be abandoned by the Tenant or others and Landlord or Landlord’s Agent may dispose of it without liability to Tenant or others. Such storage or removal shall be at the expense of the Tenant.

16.PAYMENT OF RENT: Rent is due and payable on the first day of each month. It is agreed and understood by all parties to this Lease Agreement that any rental payment received by the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent five (5) days or more after the due date shall be subject to imposition of a late charge of five percent (5%) of the monthly rent. This late charge, if not remitted with the delinquent rental payment shall remain due and is payable immedi- ately. All late fees payable by Tenant shall constitute additional rent due under this Lease. Should the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent accept any partial payment of rent, this acceptance shall not be interpreted as changing the terms of the Lease which require the payment of rent in advance. Any payment made by the Tenant to the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent shall first be applied to any outstanding amounts for charges other than the current month's rent (past rent, late charges, legal fees, returned check charges, repair bills or deductible charges, court costs and other reasonable and associated costs of judicial proceedings, etc.) before being applied to the current month's rent. Payment shall always be applied to the Security Deposit due before being ap- plied to rent. If any personal check used in payment of rent, Security Deposit, or any other monies due the Landlord, is returned by the bank for insufficient funds, closed account, or any other reason, all future payments must be made in cash, certified check or money order at the option of the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent. Tenant agrees to pay Landlord an administrative charge of $25.00 on all such returned checks. Unless Tenant makes payment by check, Landlord or Landlord’s Agent shall give Tenant a receipt showing payment and the time period the payment covers.

17.USE, QUIET ENJOYMENT AND LOCAL LAWS: Landlord covenants that the Tenant, upon paying the rent and complying with the terms of this Lease, shall peaceably and quietly have, hold and enjoy the Premises for the Term of the Lease. The Tenant shall use the Premises in compliance with applicable laws and ordinances, in a manner which shall not increase the Premises’ insurance rates.

18.PETS: No pets of any kind are permitted on the Premises at any time except those, if any, permitted in writing by Landlord or by Law. In any event, Tenant shall be responsible for all costs of repairing any damage or removing any stains or odors caused by an animal on the Premises. Tenant shall be liable for any damages caused by any animal on the Premises including, but not limited to, the replacement of carpeting, hardwood flooring tile, sub-flooring, and lost rent resulting from Landlord’s inability or delay in re-renting the Premises due to a stain, odor or other damage.

19.UTILITIES: The Tenant shall be responsible for the cost and maintenance of all utilities to the Premises, including but not limited to heat, electric, gas, fuel oil, water, sewage, refuse collection, recycling, telephone, cable television and any other utilities. The Tenant shall be responsible for placing the billing into the Tenant’s name effective with the start of this Lease and shall promptly pay all such utility bills during the Lease Term as the bills become due. Land- lord may elect to keep the city, county or private water, sewer and/or trash bills in Landlord’s name, and to receive these bills directly from the municipality and to then forward a copy of these bills to Tenant for payment by Tenant. Such arrangements shall not relieve the Tenant of Tenant’s financial responsibil- ity or obligation under this Lease for these services. The Tenant agrees to forward a receipted paid water bill for the above Premises to Landlord or Land- lord’s Agent at the termination of the Lease. In the event Tenant fails to make such payments or any other utility payments critical to the maintenance or pro- tection of the property (including but not limited to electricity, heat in cold months, proper sewer or septic tank

operation), then Landlord or Landlord’s Agent, at its option, may pay same for Tenant's account, in which event Tenant shall immediately, as additional rent, reimburse Landlord in full the amount thereof. Such payment may, at the discretion of the Landlord, be added to or deemed part of the rent due and the Landlord shall have the right to seek the remedies for the collection of such charges, together with any interest and penalties incurred, as additional rent.

20.ALTERATIONS AND REDECORATING: Tenant shall not remodel or make any structural changes, alterations or additions to the Premises, remove or exchange appliances or equipment, such as, but not limited to air conditioning, heating, refrigeration or cooking units. Tenant shall not drive nails or other devices into the walls or woodwork except for a reasonable number of small nails as picture hangers (which Tenant shall be responsible for pro- fessionally repairing at end of tenancy). In no case shall tape be used. Tenant shall not paint, install wallpaper, paneling, flooring, carpeting, ceiling tiles or any other object attached in any way to the property. Tenant shall not refinish nor recoat the wood floors of the Premises.

The Tenant shall be liable for any damage to the Premises caused by bringing in, using, or removing Tenant’s

furnishings. Tenant shall not change or re-key the existing locks, nor install additional locks or devices.

The Ten- ant shall be responsible for the quality of any replacement locks and any damage caused by installation.

21.LANDLORD CONSENT REQUIRED: The Tenant is required to submit a written request to the Landlord for permission to perform any altera- tions. Prior to performing any alterations, Tenant must have the Landlord’s consent in writing. Landlord shall have the right to inspect the Premises to determine whether it has been altered or redecorated without consent, or whether such alterations and redecoration, if done with written consent, have been properly completed in a good and workmanlike manner. Any alterations, repairs or replacements which have been permitted, are to be done with a quality of materials and workmanship comparable to those which currently exist on the Premises.

22.REPAIRS AND NOTICE OF DEFECTS: Tenant shall give the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent prompt notice of any defects, leaks, or breakage in the structure, equipment or fixtures of the Premises including damage by accident, fire, storm or flood.

Tenant agrees to maintain said appliances and personal property at Tenant's own risk and expense and maintain them in good order. In the event of replacement of appliances, the cost shall be the responsibility of the Landlord. By definition, replacement shall be necessary in the event the cost of repair exceeds seventy percent (70%) of the replacement cost, unless such condition is the result of Tenant negligence.

24.REPAIRS AND TENANT MAINTENANCE OF PREMISES: The Tenant shall keep the Premises in good order and condition and shall not deliberately or negligently destroy, deface, damage, impair or remove any part of the Premises, nor permit any person to do so, and any repairs resulting from such acts shall be paid for by the Tenant.

27.COMPLIANCE WITH COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION DOCUMENTS: The Tenant’s right to use and occupy the Premises shall be subject to the provisions of the [See Section 8] (“Community Association”) (which shall include condominium unit owners’ association, homeowners’ association or other similar associations) Covenants, Declarations and Bylaws (collectively “Association Documents”) and to such rules and regulations as the Community Association may issue (collectively “Rules and Regulations”).

29.LEASE VIOLATIONS: If the Tenant, Tenant's family, employees, or guests violate any provision of this Lease, or any rule or regulation herein imposed, then Landlord may reasonably treat such representation or Lease violation as a material breach of the terms of this Lease, in which event Land- lord may terminate the Lease by giving written notice to the Tenant to vacate the Premises, with Tenant's possession of the Premises terminating on the date specified in Landlord's notice. Under such circumstances, Landlord may re-enter and take possession of the Premises by utilizing applicable law. If Tenant's possession of the Premises should be so terminated, or if the Premises should otherwise become vacant during the Term of this Lease, or any renewal or extension, Tenant shall remain liable to the Landlord for the rent through what would have been the expiration date of this Lease, or any renewal or exten- sion, had Tenant's possession not been so terminated; and shall further remain liable for such other damages sustained by the Landlord due to Tenant's breach of Lease and/or Tenant's termination of possession of the Premises as long as such liability is not expressly prohibited by applicable law. Such other damages shall include, but are not limited to, costs incurred in recovering possession of the Premises, costs incurred in re-leasing the Premises such

Properly licensed vehicles in operating condition may be parked in the driveway, if provided, or in the street or other paved parking area, in accordance with the law and any community or community association restrictions or regulations. If the Premises is part of a community association, Tenant agrees to abide by all parking rules, regulations and restrictions and to use only those parking spaces provided or assigned to the unit. Tenant shall be responsible for informing Tenant’s guests and invitees of these rules and Tenant shall be responsible for Tenant’s guests and invitees abiding by these rules. If vehicle registration is required by the community association, it shall be Tenant’s responsibility to ensure that Tenant’s vehicles are registered promptly and prop- erly. Any community association parking fines or penalties caused by Tenant’s vehicles shall be the responsibility of the Tenant under this Lease and pay- ment for such shall be promptly made by Tenant. In the event that Landlord is required by the community association to pay for such, this amount shall be considered as additional rent under the terms of this Lease.

31.LIENS ON THE PREMISES AND SIGNS: Tenant shall not create or permit any lien upon the Premises or Tenant’s interest in this Lease. Ten- ant shall not place nor display any sign, advertisement or notice on any part of the Premises.

32.ACCIDENT LIABILITY: The Tenant hereby releases the Landlord and Landlord’s Agents from all responsibility, and expressly assumes all liabil- ity, in any action for damage which may arise from any kind of injury to anyone, by or on account of the use, or misuse, of that portion of the demised Prem- ises within the exclusive control of Tenant, or by and on account of any physical condition that may, at any time, exist upon that portion of the Premises within the exclusive control of the Tenant. To the extent permitted by law, the Landlord shall not be liable for any injury, damage or loss resulting from any accident or occurrence in or upon the Premises. To the extent permitted by law, Tenant shall indemnify and hold Landlord harmless against liability, claims or actions for any damages caused in whole or in part by Tenant, Tenant's family, agents, employees, guests, other invitees or pets.

33.TENANT’S INSURANCE AND PERSONAL PROPERTY: Tenant agrees to obtain Tenant liability insurance in an amount not less than the amount specified above [See Section 9] and shall have the Landlord and Landlord’s Agent named as “additionally insured.” Tenant must provide proof of such insurance coverage to Landlord or Landlord’s Agent at time of move-in and at any other time upon request. Should Tenant not provide proof of such coverage at move-in, Landlord reserves the right (but in no case shall be required or expected) to place such liability coverage in Tenant’s name and at Tenant’s expense. The cost of such policy premium, if placed by Landlord, shall be considered as additional rent. Tenant shall not act nor permit another to act in a manner which shall adversely affect, increase the cost of, or result in the cancellation of any fire or other insurance policy of the Landlord covering the Premises. Tenant acknowledges that all of Tenant's personal property or that which belongs to others placed on the Premises at the invitation of or with the consent of the Tenant shall be at the Tenant's sole risk. To the extent permitted by law, Tenant shall indemnify and hold harmless Landlord from and against any loss or damage to such personal property.

34.ACCESS TO THE PREMISES AND INSPECTION DURING OCCUPANCY: The Landlord or Landlord’s Agent, upon reasonable notice to the Tenant and at reasonable times, may enter the Premises in order to inspect, make necessary or agreed-upon repairs, decorations, alterations, or improvements, supply necessary or agreed-upon services, place a “For Rent” or “For Sale” sign upon the Premises and/or a key lockbox. “Reasonable times” shall generally be considered to be between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. If Landlord or Landlord’s Agent is unable to gain access after making reason- able attempts to arrange an appointment with the Tenant, Tenant authorizes Landlord or Landlord’s Agent to use a key provided by Landlord or Landlord’s Agent to gain entrance to the property. Before using this authorization, Landlord or Landlord’s Agent shall notify the Tenant of the date and time of the in- spection, although the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent is under no obligation to inspect.

In case of emergency, where it is impractical for the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent to give reasonable notice to the Tenant of the intent to enter the Premises, or in case the Premises have been vacated, abandoned or surrendered by the Tenant, the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent may enter the Premises without notice and without the consent of the Tenant. Should it become necessary to make repairs or to decorate the Premises, the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent, whenever possible, shall make arrangements for such workers to coordinate with the Tenant the time and date when workers may enter the Premises in order to accomplish the work. It then shall be the Tenant’s responsibility to ensure that these workers have access to the Premises at a time and date con- venient to both Tenant and workers and that this time and date should be during the regular business hours of the firm doing the work.

The Tenant shall not use or permit the Premises to be used for any unlawful act in or upon the Premises.

38.CASUALTY DAMAGE: If the Premises are destroyed by fire, act of nature, act of God, public enemies, or other casualty, the Term of this Lease shall immediately cease upon payment of rent apportioned to the day of such happening. If, however, the Premises are only partially destroyed or dam- aged and the Landlord decides to repair the Premises, such repairs shall be made by the Landlord or Landlord’s Agent without unreasonable delay, and this Lease shall remain in full force and effect, without any abatement of rent.

Tenant agrees that no person occupying or otherwise using the Premises, shall manufacture, sell, distribute, dis- pense, or store any illegal drugs on or about the Premises, nor shall any such person attempt, endeavor or conspire to manufacture, sell, distribute or store any illegal drugs on or about the Premises. Any violation of this prohibition shall give Landlord the right to terminate this Lease immediately, in which event Landlord shall give Tenant written notice to vacate the Premises. If Tenant fails to vacate the Premises in accordance with the notice, Landlord shall be entitled to immediately seek repossession of the Premises in accordance with applicable law. Tenant agrees Landlord shall be entitled to repossession of the Premises pursuant to this provision if Landlord or Landlord’s Agent has a reasonable basis to believe there has been a breach of this covenant to main- tain a drug-free environment.

41.SEVERABILITY AND DEFAULT: The provisions of this Lease are severable and if any provision, clause, sentence, section or part thereof is held illegal, invalid, unconstitutional or inapplicable to any person or circumstance, such illegality, invalidity, unconstitutionality or inapplicability shall not affect nor impair any of the remaining provisions, sentences, clauses, sections, or parts of the Lease or their application to the Tenant or other persons or circum- stances.
