by Transferee with any of the provisions hereof will (i) conflict with or result
in any breach of any provisions of the partnership agreement of Transferee, (ii)
result in a violation or breach of, or constitute (with or without due notice or

other instrument or obligation to which Transferee is a party or by which it or
any of its properties or assets may be bound, or (iii) violate any order, writ,

validly executed and delivered by Transferor to Transferee and constitutes a
valid and binding agreement of Transferor, enforceable against Transferor in

                  3.5 Title to Assets. Transferor has good and valid title to
the Interest, free and clear of any Liens (as hereinafter defined). The
Partnership has good and valid title to the Personal Property. To Transferor's

                  (i)      Liens  for real  property  taxes  and  assessments  
                           or for fire  dues,  library  dues or similar 
                           assessments not yet delinquent;

                  (ii)     Liens that are not material in character, amount, or
                           extent and do not materially detract from the value,

                           assets subject thereto or affected thereby or
                           otherwise materially impair the business operations
                           being conducted or proposed to be conducted thereon;

                  3.6 Debt. The Property is encumbered by the mortgage
indebtedness described on Schedule 3.6 hereto (the "Mortgage Debt"). Except for
the Mortgage Debt, the Partnership has no material indebtedness other than
indebtedness incurred by it in its ordinary course of business. To Transferor's
knowledge, there exists no default, or event which with the passage of time or
notice or both would constitute a default with respect to the Mortgage Debt or
any other debt of the Partnership that has not been cured or that would have a
material adverse effect on the business or financial condition of the
Partnership, the Transaction or the Property.

                  3.7 Financial Statements. The financial statements of the
Partnership attached as Schedule 3.7 hereto (the "Financial Statements") have
been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles
applied on a consistent basis throughout the periods specified. The balance
sheets in the Financial Statements fairly present the financial condition of the
Partnership as of the dates shown, and the income statements in the Financial
Statements fairly present the results of operations for the periods indicated.

                  3.8 Financial Condition. Since June 30, 1997, there has been
no material adverse change in the business or financial condition of the
Partnership.

                  3.9 Leases. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.9 hereto, the
Partnership has not entered into any leases, tenancies or other rights of
occupancy in effect on the date hereof with respect to the Property. Each of the
leases referenced in Schedule 3.9 (the "Leases") has been delivered to or made
available to Transferee and is presently unamended (or with respect to each such
lease that has been amended, all amendments thereto have been delivered or made
available to Transferee) and, to Transferor's knowledge, are in full force and
effect without material default.

                  3.10 Contracts. The Partnership is not a party to and neither
Transferor nor the Partnership is bound by any contracts or other
understandings, written or oral, that relate to the Interest or the Property,
except for contracts or understandings that are not material to the business and
operations of the Property (collectively, the "Contracts," which term shall not
be construed to include any leases). Neither Transferor nor the Partnership, as
applicable, nor, to Transferor's knowledge, any other party thereto has breached
or defaulted under the terms of any Contract, except for such breaches or
defaults that would not have a material adverse effect on the business or
operations of the Partnership or the Property.

                  3.11 Permits. To the knowledge of Transferor, the Partnership
has all such franchises, certificates, licenses, permits and other
authorizations from government political subdivisions, regulatory authorities or
any other person or entity (collectively "Permits") as are necessary for the
ownership, use, operation and licensing of the Property as it is currently being
used, except where the failure to possess such Permits would not have a material
adverse effect on the business or financial condition of the Partnership or the
Property, and to Transferor's knowledge, the Partnership is not in violation of
any Permit in any material respect and all Permits of the Partnership are valid
and in full force and effect.

                  3.12. Litigation. There are no claims, actions, suits,
proceedings or investigations pending or, to Transferor's knowledge, threatened
against Transferor or the Partnership, or any properties or rights of Transferor
or the Partnership, that would have a material adverse effect on the business or
financial condition of Transferor or the Partnership, the Transaction or the
Property before any court or administrative, governmental or regulatory
authority or body, domestic or foreign. None of Transferor, the Partnership, the
Interest or the Property is subject to any order, judgment, injunction or decree
of any court, tribunal or other governmental authority (other than generally
applicable laws, rules and regulations) that would have a material adverse
effect on the business or financial condition of the Partnership, the
Transaction or the Property.

                  3.13 Compliance with Laws. To Transferor's knowledge, the
Partnership has not received any written or other actual notice of any material
violation of any applicable zoning regulation or ordinance, or of any
employment, environmental, or other regulatory law, order, regulation or

requirement, including applicable subdivision laws, relating to the Property or
the business or operations thereon, which remains uncured, and, to Transferor's
knowledge, there are no such violations which, individually or in the aggregate,
would have a material adverse effect on the business or financial condition of

required to be filed (without regard to any applicable extensions) on or before
the date hereof have been paid or will be paid prior to the delinquency thereof.

                  3.15 Insurance. To Transferor's knowledge, each of the
insurance policies with respect to the Property is in full force and effect and
all premiums due and payable thereunder have been fully paid when due. To
Transferor's knowledge, the Partnership has not received from any insurance
company notice of any material defects or deficiencies affecting the
insurability of the Property or notices of cancellation or intent to cancel any
such insurance.

                  3.16 Employees.  The Partnership has no employees.

of the Property, are installed in, and are duly connected to, the Property and
can be used without any charge except the normal and usual metered charges
imposed for such Public Utilities. No amounts due and owing with respect to the
Property in connection with utilities, insurance, assessments or other charges
customarily prorated in real estate transactions have been outstanding more than

                  8.1 Transferor's Remedies. Except for any breaches waived in
writing by Transferor, if Transferee fails to consummate the Transaction when
required to do so pursuant to the provisions hereof, then Transferor shall be
entitled to terminate this Agreement as the exclusive and sole right and remedy
of Transferor (except as provided in this sentence), whereupon this Agreement
shall terminate and none of the parties shall have any further obligations to
any other party, provided, however, that in such event Transferee shall
reimburse Transferor for all reasonable costs incurred by Transferor in
connection with the Transaction, provided that the amount to be reimbursed by

                  8.2 Transferee's Remedies. Except for any breaches waived in
writing by Transferee, if any Transferee has breached any of his covenants or
obligations under this Agreement or has failed, refused or is unable to
consummate the Transaction by the date of the Closing when and as required to do
so hereunder, then Transferee shall have the right to bring an action at law or
in equity seeking the specific performance of the obligations of Transferor
hereunder and in addition thereto or in lieu thereof, Transferee may avail
itself of any other remedies available at law or in equity on account of such
breach, provided, however, the amount of money damages that Transferee may
recover from Transferor shall not exceed Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000).

costs, damages, losses and liabilities (including attorneys' fees and other
charges) which may at any time be asserted against or suffered by any Transferee
Indemnitee, the Property, or any part thereof, whether before or after date of
the Closing, as a result of, on account of or arising from (a) the failure of
Transferor to perform any of his obligations hereunder or, to the extent

and warranties hereunder, (b) events, contractual obligations, acts or omissions
of Transferor or the Partnership that occurred in connection with the ownership

debt or encumbrance (other than Permitted Liens) created, arising or accruing
prior to the date of the Closing, regardless of when asserted, relating to the
Property or its operation, including, without limitation, any and all
liabilities for federal or state income taxes or other taxes, which shall not
have been set forth or specifically described in this Agreement or the Schedules
and the Exhibits hereto. The obligations of Transferor under this Section 9.1
shall survive the Closing.

                  9.2 Indemnification by Transferee. Transferee hereby

or such other address as the addressee may indicate by written notice to the 
other party.

                  Each notice, demand, request or communication which shall be
given or made in the manner described above shall be deemed sufficiently given
or made for all purposes at such time as it is delivered to the addressee (with
the delivery receipt, the affidavit of messenger or (with respect to a telex)
the answerback being deemed conclusive but not exclusive evidence of such
delivery) or at such time as delivery is refused by the addressee upon
presentation.

                  10.3 Governing Law. This Agreement, the rights and obligations
of the parties hereto and any claims or disputes relating thereto shall be
governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Maryland (but not
including the choice of law rules thereof).

                  10.4 Benefit and Assignment. No party hereto shall assign this
Agreement, in whole or in part, whether by operation of law or otherwise,
without the prior written consent of Transferor (if the assignor is Transferee)
or Transferee (if the assignor is Transferor), which consent shall not be
unreasonably withheld, and any purported assignment contrary to the terms hereof
shall be null, void and of no force and effect, except that Transferee may
assign all or a portion of this Agreement and its rights hereunder, to a
corporation, partnership, limited liability or other entity of which the entire
ownership interest is owned directly or indirectly by Transferee without the
consent of Transferor; no such assignment shall relieve Transferee of its
obligations hereunder.

                  This Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the
benefit to the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns as
permitted hereunder. No person or entity other than the parties hereto is or
shall be entitled to bring any action to enforce any provision of this Agreement
against any of the parties hereto, and the covenants and agreements set forth in
this Agreement shall be solely for the benefit of, and shall be enforceable only
by, the parties hereto or their respective successors and assigns as permitted
hereunder.

                  10.5 Severability. If any part of any provision of this
Agreement or any other agreement, document or writing given pursuant to or in
connection with this Agreement shall be invalid or unenforceable under
applicable law, such part shall be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity
or unenforceability only, without in any way affecting the remaining parts of
such provisions or the remaining provisions of said agreement so long as the
economic and legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not
affected in any manner materially adverse to any party.

                  10.6 Entire Agreement; Amendment. This Agreement and the
Exhibits and Schedules attached hereto (each of which shall be deemed
incorporated herein and made a part hereof) contain the final and entire

agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the Transaction and are
intended to be an integration of all prior negotiations and understandings.
Contributor and Transferee shall not be bound by any terms, conditions,
statements, warranties or representations, oral or written, not contained or
referred to herein or therein. No amendment, change or modification of this
Agreement shall be valid unless the same is in writing and signed by the parties
hereto.

                  10.7 No Waiver. No delay or failure on the part of any party
hereto in exercising any right, power or privilege under this Agreement or under
any other instrument or document given in connection with or pursuant to this
Agreement shall impair any such right, power or privilege or be construed as a
waiver of any default or any acquiescence therein. No single or partial exercise
of any such right, power or privilege shall preclude the further exercise of
such right, power or privilege. No waiver shall be valid against any party
hereto unless made in writing and signed by the party against whom enforcement
of such waiver is sought and then only to the extent expressly specified
therein.

                  10.8 Power of Attorney. By executing this Agreement pursuant

any other instruments that Transferee reasonably deems necessary or appropriate
in connection with the transfer of the Interest pursuant to this Agreement.

                  10.9 Headings. Section and subsection headings contained in
this Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only, shall not be
deemed to be a part of this Agreement for any purpose, and shall not in any way
define or affect the meaning, construction or scope of any of the provisions
hereof.

                  10.10 Counterparts. To facilitate execution, this Agreement
may be executed in as many counterparts as may be required. It shall not be
necessary that the signature of or on behalf of each party appears on each
counterpart, but it shall be sufficient that the signature of or on behalf of
each party appears on one or more of the counterparts. All counterparts shall
collectively constitute a single agreement. It shall not be necessary in any
proof of this Agreement to produce or account for more than a number of
counterparts containing the respective signatures of or on behalf of all of the
parties.

                  IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Transferor has executed a separate Letter
