California (hereafter "Premises").


The term of this Lease/Rental Agreement shall be for twelve (12) months,
commencing on 1 November, 2014 and ending on 1 October, 2015.
2.2 The LESSOR/RENTOR may terminate this contract by giving at least thirty (30) days
written notice to LESSEE/RENTEE if LESSOR/RENTOR determines, in LESSOR/ RENTOR's
sole discretion, that the premises are to be incorporated into a city-wide Parking Plan which will

classification in any way that precludes it from being used in a manner that is consistent with this

permit and licensing fees, and utilities. Gross Receipts shall exclude federal and state income

collection costs and processing and accounting expenses. Accordingly if any rental payment
hereunder is not received by LESSOR/ RENTOR from LESSEE/RENTEE within ten (1 0) days

reasonable estimate of such costs and expenses and is fair compensation to LESSOR/RENTOR
for its losses sustained by reason of LESSEE's /RENTEE's failure to make timely payment. In
no event shall this provision for the payment of a late charge be deemed to grant to
LESSEE/RENTEE a grace period or extension of time within which to pay any rental due
hereunder or prevent LESSOR/RENTOR from exercising any right or remedy available to
LESSOR/RENTOR upon LESSEE's/RENTEE's failure to pay such rental when due, including
the right to terminate this Lease.
If any rental remains delinquent for a period in excess of thirty (30) days, then , in
addition to the late charge provided hereinabove, LESSEE/RENTEE shall pay to

used for any purpose or purposes other than those for which the Premises are hereby leased.

conflicting with any of the terms of this Lease/Rental Agreement.
