2nd Amendment To Lease (by Victoria [CA]) Posted on: Sep 29, 2022 6:39 PM
Message:

Hello!

I'm about to create a second amendment to a lease agreement and need some help on the verbiage. So far I have the following:

1. The original lease which was dated 12/16/2020, and

2. A First Amendment (renewing the lease) dated 12/3/2021.

I need to create a Second Amendment to again renew the lease. The last amendment had this verbiage: "The Lease Agreement dated 12/16/2020 by and , as “Lessor”, and , as “Lessee”, for the Premises located at , is hereby amended as follows:

Lease Extension: Lessee is granted a lease extension (First Extended Term) on all the provisions contained in the Lease Agreement for a one (1) year period ending December 31, 2022. Monthly rent shall remain at beginning January 1, 2022.

QUESTION: This may sound like a dumb question but does anyone have verbiage to reference the original lease AND the First Amendment? Wondering if anyone has a sample of an amendment that references the original lease and any previous amendments.

Let me know. Thanks in advance Mr. Landlord Community!

There comes a time when too many amendments are a drawback if you go to Court in California. Instead I would draw up a new lease, with all of the added clauses under the State/City Laws, adding your needed items.

On my new lease I state "This is a New Lease that Supersedes all prior leases with this tenant, named Gina Lopez and Todd Swartz".

If my tenant refuses to sign a new lease, NO PROBLEM. I would then send them a "Change of Terms of Tenancy" stating the new rules. Such as "Any tenant using a BBQ must be supervised at all times and at least 15 feet from any structure". (Old distance was 10 feet in California). --47.156.xx.xx

My addendum references the original lease and then states the new dates, rent etc. Unless there was a new clause added on a previous addendum, I would not be concerned about referencing the previous renewal addendums. --23.242.xxx.xx

It's a great idea to join the local LLing association as they will be experts in legal matters that most of us are not... that said...

Why not just have a lease auto-renewal clause? Unless it violates your state's laws/statutes, I'd work to simply life by adding something like this, which comes straight out of my lease. Feel free to copy/paste/use once you get the thumb up from legal counsel.

Btw, to clarify, the reason I use "rent payment plan" is I offer Monthly, Bi-monthly, and Bi-weekly Plans. The renter gets to choose. Each one has a total different annual cost, so this allows for maximum flexibility of automatic renewal...whatever you're paying now... add 3.4%.

Second btw, I can always ask for more. This is what happens if no one does anything (the default). I can always give notice 30 days out that I want $X increase. If they refuse, they move.

******************

Lease Renewal. Written notice not to renew must be given a minimum of 30 days from the end date specified or the agreement shall renew for 12 months with an automatic cost-of-living increase of 3.4% of the current rent payment plan in effect. If TENANT requests to renew lease on a month-to-month basis, the rent will be increased by 20% over the rent payment plan currently in effect, and a processing fee of $50 shall be due and payable before month-to-month lease renewal becomes effective. Month-to-month extensions are subject to LANDLORD approval in writing.

Victoria,

I have watched judges throw out addendums.

If it’s worth stating, put it in the lease.

Just have them sign a new lease.
