A Lease Amendment Agreement is a short document that allows for the amendment of an original lease. In other words, a Lease Amendment Agreement is used when something about the original lease needs to be changed or an addition needs to be made.
Within a Lease Amendment Agreement, there is not that much information included, except the basics: names and identifying information of the parties, amendment start date, the name of the landlord, etc. The reason these documents are not more robust is because the original lease is incorporated by reference. What this means is that all of the terms in the original lease are deemed to be included in the Lease Amendment Agreement, except the explicit term that has changed.
How to use this document
This Lease Amendment Agreement will help set forth all the required facts and obligations for a valid lease amendment. This essentially means the landlord and tenant are explicitly agreeing to change one term of the lease between them.
This Amendment Agreement can be used for either type of lease: residential or commercial.
In this document, basic information is listed, such as identifying information of the parties and lease. The most important section of this document is the section describing the actual amendment, which will be entered by the party filling out this document.
When this document has been completed online, it should be printed out and signed. Then, the original Lease should be attached before it is sent to the other party. The party sending it should keep one signed copy of this amendment as well as the original Lease. The amendment is only complete when both parties have signed.
Lease Agreements in the United States are generally subject to the laws of the individual state and therefore, so are Lease Amendment Agreements.
The Environmental Protection Agency governs the disclosure of lead-based paint warnings in all rentals in the States. If a lead-based paint disclosure has not been included in the lease, it should be included in the amendment. Distinct from that, however, required disclosures and lease terms will be based on the laws of the state, and sometimes county, where the property is located.
