Lease Amendment Information

Alternate Names:

A Lease Amendment is sometimes referred to as a/an:

  • Lease Addendum
  • Lease Modification Agreement
  • Residential Lease Amendment
  • Amendment to Tenancy Agreement
  • Residential Tenancy Amending Agreement

What is a Lease Amendment?

A Lease Amendment, also known as a residential Lease Amendment, is used to make changes to an existing Tenancy Agreement. The rest of the original agreement remains in effect, but with the amendments included as an attachment.

Landlords and tenants can use a residential Lease Amendment to change or add terms in an existing Tenancy Agreement. In order for the amendment to be valid, both the landlord and tenant must sign it to indicate that they agree with the changes or additions.

What changes can a Lease Amendment be used for?

A Lease Amendment is generally used for straightforward changes to the Tenancy Agreement, such as:

  • A change in rent amount
  • A change in frequency of rent payments
  • Changes in responsibility for utility payments
  • Changes in rental permissions (such as pets)

Although there is technically no limit to the number of changes you can make and no restrictions in relation to the complexity of the changes made with the Lease Amendment, it is best practice to create a new agreement if the changes amend most of the existing content of the Tenancy Agreement.

Can I add new clauses to a Tenancy Agreement with a Lease Amendment?

You can use a Lease Amendment to add new clauses to an existing Tenancy Agreement instead of making changes to current clauses or do both at the same time.

As an example, you can use a Lease Amendment to:

  • Add a new tenant or tenants to an existing Tenancy Agreement
  • Add an additional clause that states the tenant is now responsible for paying a portion of the yearly property taxes
  • Add a clause that allows for subletting or assignment of the agreement

LawDepot's Lease Amendment allows you to make up to five total changes (amendments to existing clauses or adding new clauses) to a Tenancy Agreement at a time. If you need to make more than five changes, you should create a new Tenancy Agreement.

Where can I use a Lease Amendment?

LawDepot's Lease Amendment is available for use in most Australian states and territories, including:

  • Australian Capital Territory (ACT)
  • New South Wales (NSW)
  • Northern Territory (NT)
  • Queensland (QLD)
  • South Australia (SA)
