The LESSEE shall notify the LESSOR in writing of his or her desire to renew the lease at least sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the AGREEMENT, provided, however, that the mere notification by the LESSEE of the desire to renew the AGREEMENT shall not be deemed as an automatic renewal of the lease. The LESSOR shall notify the LESSEE in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the AGREEMENT if the LESSOR shall agree to renew or extend the lease upon the terms and conditions mutually agreed upon by both parties.

Failure of the LESSEE to give the written notice of their intention to renew the lease within sixty (60) days or a failure to agree to terms and conditions for the renewal or extension of the lease entitles the LESSOR to show the LEASED PROPERTY to prospective new tenants in the manner provided above and, if proper, to hang a "For Rent" sign on the LEASED PROPERTY.


16. RETURN OF LEASED PROPERTY

Upon the termination or expiration of the lease, the LESSEE shall immediately vacate and peacefully and completely surrender the LEASED PROPERTY to the LESSOR in a good and habitable condition, save for the natural wear and tear, and devoid of any occupants, furniture, or other articles of any kind, save for the alterations and modifications, in which case the proper provisions in this AGREEMENT shall apply.


17. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLEASE

The AGREEMENT may not be assigned and the LEASED PROPERTY may not be subleased without the written consent of the LESSOR.


18. NO WAIVER OF RIGHTS

Failure of the LESSOR or the LESSEE to insist, in one or more instances, the strict performance of any of the covenants of this AGREEMENT, or to exercise any portion herein contained, shall thereafter not be construed as abandonment or cancellation or waiver of such covenant or option. No waiver shall be deemed to have been made unless expressed in writing and signed by LESSOR or the LESSEE.


19. INDEMNIFICATION

The LESSEE shall hold the LESSOR, its directors, officers, employees, representatives and agents free and harmless from any damage or injury to LESSEE or LESSEE's family members, guests, domestic helpers and other persons whose access to the LEASED PROPERTY is allowed by the LESSEE or their property. The LESSEE also agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold the LESSOR harmless from any and all claims or assertions related to any said damage or injury.
