Asked on Oct 9, 2023

What's an addendum in a rental agreement?

I am a renter who recently signed a rental agreement for an apartment. I was provided with a copy of the agreement, but it included an addendum that I was not given an opportunity to review before signing. I am concerned that the addendum may contain terms that I was not aware of and would like to know what an addendum in a rental agreement is in order to understand my rights and obligations under the agreement.

An addendum to a rental agreement is the same as any other terms and condition that is part of the rental agreement itself. An addendum is binding. If you are concerned about the terms in the addendum, especially since you were not given an opportunity to read the addendum in advance, you should contact the landlord in writing to express your concerns, and note that you were not given the opportunity to read the addendum in advance and do not consider the addendum part of your rental agreement. For assistance, please contact a landlord/tenant attorney.
