No additional locks or bolts of any kind shall be placed upon any of the doors or windows by any Tenant nor shall any changes be made in existing locks or the mechanism thereof without consulting the Landlord and obtaining Landlord’s prior written approval.

At the termination of this tenancy Tenant shall promptly return to Landlord all keys and access cards to the Premises and toilet rooms.

Such pre-arrangement initiated by Tenant will include determination by Landlord and subject to its decision and control, as to the concerns which may prohibit any article, equipment or other item from being brought into the Building. Tenant is to assume all risk as to damage to articles moved and injury to persons or public engaged or not engaged in such movement, including equipment, property, and personnel of Landlord if damaged or injured as a result of acts in connection with carrying out this service for Tenant from time of entering the Building to completion of work; and Landlord shall not be liable for acts of any person engaged in, or any damage or loss to any of said property or persons resulting from, any act in connection with such service performed for Tenant.
