Section 19.5.Survival of Obligations. The obligations of Tenant and Landlord under this Article 19 shall survive and be enforceable following the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
Surrender of Premises and Removal of Property
Section 20.1.Surrender. On or before the last day of the Term, Tenant shall surrender the Premises to Landlord in accordance with Section 10.3, subject to repairs and maintenance which are Landlord’s obligation hereunder and damage by casualty or the elements or Taking by eminent domain; provided, however, Tenant (in its sole and absolute discretion) shall remove any or all of its FF&E, readily removable personal property and trade fixtures (including Tenant’s Signs) from the Premises within thirty (30) days after the expiration of the Term or the earlier termination of this Lease, but Tenant shall repair any unreasonable damage incurred in the removal of the same.
Section 20.2.Financing of Trade Fixtures. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Article 14 or elsewhere in this Lease, Tenant may lease or finance Tenant’s FF&E and other personal property from a leasing company or lender, hereinafter referred to as the “Finance Company”. Said FF&E and other personal property will be installed, maintained and used in the Premises in order to assist Tenant to carry on its business as provided for herein. Landlord further agrees that any of said FF&E and other personal property shall remain Tenant’s personal property, notwithstanding the manner or mode of the attachment to the Premises. Landlord recognizes and acknowledges that any claim or claims that the Finance Company has or hereafter may have against said FF&E and other personal property by virtue of an equipment lease or chattel mortgage or the like is superior to any lien or claim of any nature which Landlord now has or hereafter may have to Tenant’s FF&E and other personal property by statute, agreement or otherwise. In the event of default of Tenant in the payment of any rental or other amount due to the Finance Company, or in the performance of any of the other terms and conditions of the equipment lease, chattel mortgage or the like or extensions or renewals thereof, the Finance Company or its assignee may remove Tenant’s FF&E and other personal property covered by such equipment lease or chattel mortgage or the like or any part thereof from the Premises in accordance with the terms and conditions of the equipment lease or chattel mortgage or the like. Tenant shall be responsible for any damage caused in the removal of any such FF&E and personal property from the Premises. Landlord will make no claim whatsoever to any FF&E or other personal property covered by any equipment lease or chattel mortgage or the like. The Finance Company may, without affecting the validity of this waiver, extend the terms of payment of any rental or the performance of any of the other terms or conditions of the equipment lease or chattel mortgage or the like, without the consent of Landlord and without giving notice to Landlord. This waiver shall inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the Finance Company and shall be binding upon the heirs, personal representatives, successors and assigns of Landlord.
Section 20.3.Waiver of Liens and Distraint. Landlord hereby waives, releases and relinquishes any and all liens in favor of Landlord and rights of distraint (whether arising by virtue of statute, common law or otherwise) upon Tenant’s Property. Landlord further agrees not to assert any lien, levy or attachment on or recourse to any of Tenant’s Property that is subject to any lien or security interest in favor of any vendor or other supplier under any conditional sale, chattel mortgage or other security arrangement, any consignor, any holder of reserved title or any holder of a security interest, or lender. Although the foregoing shall be self-operative without the necessity for any further instrument or document, Landlord hereby agrees to furnish Tenant or any vendor or other supplier under any conditional sale, chattel mortgage or other security arrangement, any consignor, any holder of reserved title or any holder of a security interest, upon written request from time to time, reasonable waivers of Landlord’s liens upon and right to distraint, levy, attachment or recourse with respect to the property subject thereto and exempting the same from distraint, levy, attachment or recourse.
Section 20.4.Landlord’s Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, Tenant shall have the right, without Landlord’s consent to encumber the leasehold estate created under this Lease and/or to grant a security interest in Tenant’s removable trade fixtures, furnishings and equipment located within the Premises (but not to encumber Landlord’s fee interest in the Premises), to secure financing provided to Tenant by any bank, thrift institution, insurance company or other institutional lender. Tenant agrees to notify
