A Lease Amendment is also known as:
- Amendment to Lease
- Lease Modification Agreement
- Lease Amending Agreement
- Lease Addendum
What is a Lease Amendment?
A Lease Amendment is used to modify an existing Lease Agreement between a tenant and landlord by adding or removing clauses, or changing existing clauses. An amendment allows the parties to change the terms without having to sign a new Lease Agreement.
Who Can Use a Lease Amendment?
A Lease Amending Agreement can be used by landlords and tenants to change terms in an existing Lease Agreement. The landlord and tenant must both consent to and sign the amendment in order for it to come into effect.
What Can I Use a Lease Amendment For?
A Lease Amendment is commonly used for making changes to the:
- Lease length, renewal, or termination clauses
- Amount of rent
- Maintenance duties, such as maintaining outdoor areas
- Rental terms, such as subletting
- Permissions, such as pets
- Property use or boundaries
- Number of occupants or tenants, such as a roommate
As long as both parties agree to the amendment, almost any change can be made to the Lease Agreement.
