THE PARTIES HEREBY AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
1. THE LEASE
The Lessor hereby leases to the Lessee storage parking in space(s), to be determined by Lessor, and situated in the Lessor’s storage premises located at 124 Fourth Avenue in Arnprior, Ontario.
For the summer season, this lease shall have a term of five (5) months, beginning on May 1st and ending at the close of business on September 30th.
For the winter season, this lease shall have a term of seven (7) months, beginning on October 1st and ending at the close of business on April 30th.
For annual storage, this lease shall have a term of twelve (12) months.
The Lease shall be automatically renewed on a month to month basis if the Lessee occupies the storage parking space(s) after the term has ended unless, ten (10) days before the end of the term, either party has delivered the other with a written notice that the Lease will come to an end without renewal. Subject to section 5, the renewed Lease shall contain the same terms and conditions as provided for herein, save and except for the month to month term.
The Lessee agrees to pay, in advance, the monthly rent (plus applicable taxes) noted in the website form. If the Lessee vacates the storage parking space(s) before the term has expired, the Lessee shall not receive reimbursement of rent. The Lessee agrees to pay to the Lessor a service fee of $100 + HST in the event that the vehicle’s battery fails and requires a boost and/or charge, if the Lessee did not subscribe to the trickle charge service.
The Lessor may, upon renewal of this Lease, or in the case of a month to month term, on April 30th of each year, increase the rent by delivering to the Lessee, no less than 30 days advance written notice of the new rent.
The Lessee recognizes that time is very important with respect to payment of the rent as set out in this Lease. Therefore, in each and every case where the Lessee fails to pay the rent by its due date, the Lessee shall pay the following additional amounts, as liquidated damages:
|Number of Days Late
Up to & including 5
|Fee Amount (Before Taxes)
Once payment has been made, the Lessee shall forthwith have access to the Lessee’s stored property.
The Lessee hereby acknowledges having inspected the storage premises and the building in which the storage premises are located and finding them satisfactory for storage purposes. Further, the Lessee agrees not to modify or in any way alter the storage premises or the building in which the storage premises are located, without the written authorization of the Lessor. The Lessee shall be responsible for the cost of rectifying any unauthorized modification or alteration.
The Lessee undertakes not to use the storage premises in any way that may give rise to cancellation of the insurance of the Lessor and/or its other Lessees or in any way cause an increase in the insurance premiums to be paid by the Lessor and/or its other Lessees. The Lessor will provide all reasonable security measures for the storage premises but the Lessee recognizes that the Lessor has no obligation to insure the property stored by the Lessee and that it is the Lessee’s obligation to do so. The Lessee agrees to be responsible for obtaining the necessary insurance to fully cover the value of the stored property together with damages caused by fire, theft, vandalism, breaking and entering as well as other risks a prudent owner of such stored property would normally insure against. The Lessee shall also maintain general liability insurance in an amount of no less than $ 1,000,000.00 that provides, in case of damages caused by the Lessee, or those for whom the Lessee is legally responsible, indemnification to third parties, including the Lessor.
The Lessor shall provide adequate lighting and heating for the storage premises and shall assume all related costs. The Lessor shall also provide video surveillance and perimeter alarming for the storage premises and shall assume all related costs to ensure a secure storage area. The placement and retrieval of all stored property shall be monitored by the Lessor. The Lessor shall also grant to the Lessee, provided rent and other payments are up to date, access to the storage premises through the making of an appointment with the Lessor’s personnel.

The Lessee agrees to assume responsibility for all obligations and damages resulting from the Lessee’s actions, or the actions of those for whom the Lessee is legally responsible, in the placement, presence or retrieval of the stored property in the storage premises. The Lessee shall assume full responsibility for any legal action that may be taken against the Lessor as a result of damages for which the Lessee is responsible, in accordance with the provisions of this Lease Agreement.

Waiver by the Lessor of any provision in this Lease Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any other provision or any obligations of the Lessee. The failure of the Lessor to require from the Lessee strict performance of any of the provisions hereof shall not be deemed a waiver of any right or remedy of the Lessor hereunder.
The Lessee may not hold or reduce the payment of rent in compensation for any claim that the Lessee may have against the Lessor.
The laws of the Province of Ontario shall govern this Lease Agreement and all legal proceedings related to it shall be instituted in Ottawa.
