Addendum Agreement

We know that some landlords like to add their own provisions to tenancy agreements and we therefore have an addendum agreement for this purpose. Make sure that if you use the Addendum Agreement this is signed, as well as the tenancy agreement itself. Please read the notes on the Addendum Agreement carefully. In particular, you need to be careful about altering standard clauses which are already in the tenancy agreement. You could fall foul of the Unfair Contract Terms Regulations, for example. For instance, the standard RLA tenancy agreement says that if pets are to be brought on to the property this can be done with the landlord's consent but this consent must not be unreasonably withheld. A clause banning pets altogether may fall foul of the Unfair Contract Terms Regulations e.g. because it unreasonably bans a tenant from having a small goldfish in a small bowl in the property. The RLA cannot accept any responsibility for the consequences of the variations.
