Lease Amending Agreement FAQ - Canada


A Lease Amending Agreement is used to make changes to an existing lease (e.g. changing the permitted use of property or term length). The original lease remains in effect, but with the amendments.
What is the governing law of my Lease Amending Agreement?

The governing law will be the jurisdiction in which the leased premises is located, regardless of which jurisdictions the Tenant and Landlord reside.

How many times can I amend a lease using a Lease Amending Agreement?

Our contract allows you to make amendments to a lease on 5 separate occasions. If additional amendments are needed after the 5th amendment, then an entirely new lease should be executed with the five amendments consolidated into the new agreement.

How many amendments can I make to the lease within a single Lease Amending Agreement?

Our contract allows you to make up to 5 changes to existing terms of the lease. If you have more than 5 amendments to make, you should create a new lease rather than amending the existing one.

Can I add completely new clauses to the lease?

Yes, you can use the Additional Terms section of the questions page to create new lease terms that were not contained in the lease originally.

If the Landlord and Tenant execute a Lease Amending Agreement, do the terms of the original lease still apply?

Absolutely, all of the original lease terms still apply, except to the extent they have been amended by the Lease Amending Agreement.

Can I amend the lease without the Landlord or Tenant's consent?

No, the lease is a legal contract between a Landlord and Tenant that cannot be altered unilaterally, i.e., by only one party to the contract. Our Lease Amending Agreement contains spaces for the Landlord and Tenant to acknowledge their consent to the amendment by signing their names.

I do not know when the Lease Amending Agreement will be signed. Can I fill in the date later?

Yes, by selecting 'Unsure' as the date the agreement will be signed, a blank line will be inserted into the contract so that you can write in the correct date after printing the document.
