Create a high quality document online now!

The residential lease addendum is an agreement which is added to a residential lease after the original agreement has been signed. Unlike an amendment, which acts as an alteration to the original lease, an addendum only adds additional rules, terms, or provisions to the prior agreement and does not involve a renegotiation of existing terms. This particular form may be used to add any terms to an existing lease, providing written documentation for a verbal agreement between the landlord and tenant. By creating such a document, both or either party acquires an assurance that the agreement will be upheld.
