What is a Lease Amendment?

A Lease Amendment is used to make changes to an existing Tenancy Agreement or Commercial Lease Agreement. The document allows a landlord and tenant to add, remove, or modify existing clauses. It's a convenient alternative to creating a whole new lease agreement when making minor changes to a lease.

Irish law requires that the landlord and tenant must agree to the amendments and sign the document for it to be valid. Also, the amended agreement still needs to be valid under the Landlord and Tenant Law Amendment Act, Ireland 1860

A Lease Amendment is also known as a/an:

  • Amendment to lease
  • Lease modification agreement
  • Lease amending agreement
  • Lease addendum

When can I use a Lease Amendment?

A Lease Amendment can change almost any aspect of a Tenancy Agreement as long as both parties agree. Common modifications made to a lease agreement using a Lease Amendment include:

  • Price of rent
  • Lease length, renewal, or termination clauses
  • Property use or boundaries
  • Maintenance duties, such as maintaining outdoor areas
  • Rental terms, such as subletting
  • Permissions, such as pets or smoking
  • Number of occupants or tenants, such as removing or adding a tenant to the lease

How many amendments can I make using LawDepot's Lease Amendment?

LawDepot's Lease Amendment allows you to make up to five amendments. If you are making significant changes to your agreement it is better to create a whole new Tenancy Agreement or Commercial Lease Agreement.

Do the original lease terms still apply after amending a Lease Agreement?

Only the clauses that have been added, removed, or modified are affected by a Lease Amendment. All the other terms of your original lease agreement still apply.

How do I create a Lease Amendment?

You can easily create a Lease Amendment by filling out LawDepot's questionnaire. Using our template will ensure you complete the necessary steps:

1. State the type of lease you’re amending

Start your Lease Amendment by stating if you’re amending a Tenancy Agreement or a Commercial Lease Agreement.

2. Provide each party’s information

In your Lease Amendment, state if the party is an individual or company for each landlord and tenant. Also, provide the party's full name by writing the name exactly as it appears in the original Tenancy Agreement.

You only need to include the names of the tenants, not every person occupying the property. The tenant is the adult who has signed the Tenancy Agreement and is legally responsible for paying the rent. Other people living in or using the property are considered occupants. Occupants don't need to be included in the Lease Amendment.

3. Include the property’s address

Make sure you include the property's address to clarify which property the document is referring to. Your Lease Amendment should consist of the property's:

  • Street
  • City/Town
  • County
  • Eircode

4. State the signing date of the original lease and whether you've amended it in the past

Providing the date that the landlord and tenant signed the original Tenancy Agreement also clarifies which agreement you’re altering with your Lease Amendment.

Also, state how many times you've amended the Tenancy Agreement in the past.

5. Describe the new amendments

Our Lease Amendment allows you to make up to five amendments. List and describe the modifications you’re making to your Tenancy Agreement.

Try to limit your clauses to one paragraph each when describing the amendments. Also, use terms like “landlord” and “tenant” instead of personal pronouns (i.e. we, you, they, our, etc.) to reduce any confusion.

6. Include additional details, if necessary

You can add more clauses to your Lease Amendment if there is any additional information it doesn’t cover.

7. Provide the signing date

Include the signing date if you know when the landlord and tenant will be signing the Lease Amendment. If you're unsure of the date, we provide a blank space in your document so you can add it later.
