While the original lease remains in effect; the Lease Amendment allows you to add in one or more changes to alter the existing lease terms or conditions.

How A Lease Amendment Works
A Lease Amendment form can be used when the landlord wishes to make changes or additions to the existing lease agreement. This does not mean that the original agreement is no longer in effect but rather that the documents are compatible. This amendment form can be used to add one or more changes to the existing terms and conditions.
All parties involved should sign the lease amendment in order for it to be valid and effective. If a landlord were to attempt and change the lease without the knowledge of the tenant then the changes would be null and void. There is only validity in the amendments and original terms made between both parties if they have both signed and become aware of the conditions.
