How To Get an Addendum to a Lease as a Tenant

I'm a tenant with a Case & Associates Property looking to get an addendum made to a lease agreement, specifically about a possible error with the lease term that was signed on. Is this something that can be done between a tenant and property manager? Do I need a tenant lawyer involved? Honestly any help with how to proceed on this is greatly appreciated. The error is that I had wanted to sign on for three months, but got put on for fourth months instead. I believe an addendum could correct this, but am not sure.

You're basically asking for free legal advice because you're not asking for a drafted document but I'll bite because no local lawyer will have a remedy for this anyway. The LL tenant laws for Oklahoma are found in Title 41 of the Oklahoma Statutes. They are very loose. Your proposal could be done, but the PM would have to agree to it. Typically when contracts are altered, there must be a new form of consideration in exchange for the alteration/addendum (unless you're being put on federal military orders which can break any lease.) If you're not going to offer them something of value (i.e. more money, guaranteed professional cleaning of the apt, etc.) they will not have a reason to sign it. If the language of the lease clearly stated 4 months and you signed it anyway, that is on you and you're out of luck. "I wanted to sign on for 3 months but got put on for 4 months instead." Who signed your name without your consent? Were you fraudulently coerced into signing for 1 more month....It sounds like you signed for 4 hoping you could get them down to 3 later...
