What is an Addendum To Rental Agreement?

An addendum to rental agreement is a separate legal document to the standard rental agreement that lays out additional rules or obligations. This document is prepared by the landlord or lessor and must be signed by the renter/tenant or lessee in order to be valid.

An addendum to rental agreement can cover anything that is not already laid out in the rental agreement. It will generally include additional rules or restrictions on the tenant, but may also dictate additional benefits to the tenant in exchange for these increased obligations.

6.    Option to Terminate.    Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease with respect to Premises B only on or before December 31, 2004 by providing written notice to Tenant of said election to terminate. Upon any such termination, neither party shall have any further obligations under the Lease with respect to Premises B.
7.    Brokers.    Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that Tenant has not had any dealings or entered into any agreements with any person, entity, realtor, broker, agent or finder in connection with the negotiation of this Second Amendment other than Kwartler Associates, Inc., which broker fee, if any, shall be paid by Landlord. Tenant shall indemnify and hold harmless Landlord from and against any loss, claim, damage, expense (including costs of suit and reasonable attorneys’ fees) or liability for any compensation, commission or charges claimed by any other realtor, broker, agent or finder claiming to have dealt with Tenant in connection with this Second Amendment.

I absolutely love helping my clients buy their first home, sell their starters, upgrade to their next big adventure, or transition to their next phase of life. The confidence my clients have going into a transaction and through the whole process is one of the most rewarding aspects of practicing this type of law. My very first class in law school was property law, and let me tell you, this was like nothing I’d ever experienced. I remember vividly cracking open that big red book and staring at the pages not having the faintest idea what I was actually reading. Despite those initial scary moments, I grew to love property law. My obsession with real estate law was solidified when I was working in Virginia at a law firm outside DC. I ran the settlement (escrow) department and learned the ins and outs of transactions and the unique needs of the parties. My husband and I bought our first home in Virginia in 2012 and despite being an attorney, there was so much we didn’t know, especially when it came to our HOA and our mortgage. Our real estate agent was a wonderful resource for finding our home and negotiating some of the key terms, but there was something missing in the process. I’ve spent the last 10 years helping those who were in the same situation we were in better understand the process.
