(a) Owner acknowledges that Owner must take all necessary steps to safeguard and/or remove all valuables and other personal property located in the property.

(b) Owner acknowledges that it is not a requirement of DMS Properties, LLC that Owner allow the use of a lock box, but that Owner has elected to use a lock box.

3. In consideration of the Agreement of DMS Properties, LLC to place a lock box on the Property of the Owner, Owner hereby agrees that Owner shall hold harmless and indemnify DMS Properties, LLC and all authorized users of and from any liability for loss or damage sustained by Owner or others (except if such loss or damage is caused by any act of misconduct by the Indemnified Parties which is willful, wanton, reckless or amounts to gross negligence) as a result of the installation or use or unauthorized use of the lock box by anyone on the Property of Owner. Owner does hereby expressly assume all risks of loss or damage to the above-described Property and its furnishings, personal property and contents, if any, including any and all loss or damage which may be caused by the unauthorized use of the lock box (except if such loss or damage is caused by an act of misconduct by the Indemnified Parties which is willful, wanton, reckless or amounts to gross negligence).

4.This Lock Box Authorization constitutes the sold agreement between DMS Properties, LLC and the Owner with respect to placing a lock box on the Property. If for any reason any of the terms of this Authorization shall be deemed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, this Authorization will continue in full force and effect and the unenforceable terms and conditions shall be deemed modified to the extent necessary to make those terms and conditions enforceable. This Authorization shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Maryland.
