If Landlord's right of reentry is exercised following abandonment of the Premises by
Tenant, then Landlord shall consider any personal property belonging to Tenant and left
on the Premises to also have been abandoned, in which case Landlord may dispose of

hereby relieved of all liability for doing so.
