Because communication is key, don’t rely on your text messages, e-mails and phone calls alone to get the job done.
Tenants seem to love communicating via text these days and if that’s your thing, feel free to tap away.
When things change with your lease agreement, and both the tenant and landlord agree on the change, creating a Lease Amendment is a great way to modify the terms of the original lease without having to overhaul the whole thing.
Whether you're a landlord or a tenant, a Lease Amendment helps you move forward with your leaseand with your life.
A Lease Amendment is a handy tool for both landlords and tenants, making it simple for both parties to document an agreement to modify the terms of the original lease.
Essentially, it allows you to change certain terms, while leaving the rest of the lease intact and in full effect.
