The Lessee must pay the Rent and Utilities for the entire period of the Lease, i.e. from commencement day until the day the Lease is terminated according to the Contract; unless otherwise expressly stated herein, the Rent and Utilities are thus to be paid for the term.
5. In case when the Lessee will not fulfill his obligations mentioned in art.3, the Lessor and the Lessee have agreed that there will be a fixed rent for the use of the Subject of the Lease and the Property in the amount of CZK 1,200 (in words: one thousand and two hundred Czech Crowns) for every day of such delay with handing over the Subject of the Lease and the Property. A late hand-over of the Subject of the Lease does not lead to an extension of the lease for a new term under this Contract.
6. The Lessee has the obligation to respect the entire period of the lease contract except for the reasons mentionned in art. 2 b). In case the Lessee decides to terminate the Lease period before the end of the Lease, the Deposit will be kept by the Lessor as penalty and at the same time the Lessee shall be held responsible for all outstanding Rent payments.
7. In case the Lessee will breach any of his/her obligations mentionned in clause 11, the Lessee will pay a fee related to the costs of the Lessor related to the remediation of the breach of the Lessee´s obligations, which shall amount to up to CZK 2,500 including administrative and/or legal fee for cease and desist letter/email (in words two thousand and five hundred Czech Crowns) for each time the Lessee wil breach an obligation mentioned in these articles; the Lessee expressly agrees with this provision of the Contract and the Lessee´s obligations thereunder.
