Model lease addendum
Linked below is a model lease addendum we have prepared for the edification and information of landlords and investors visiting this web site. It is tendered with these disclosures, caveats and warnings: We are not attorneys, nor has this document been reviewed by an attorney. The lease clauses elucidated in this model lease addendum may or may not withstand scrutiny by the courts. We believe them to be good, valid and useful terms and conditions, but we have not personally tested any or all of them in court. If you require legal advice, you are advised to seek competent counsel from an attorney licensed to practice in Arizona and specializing in landlord/tenant law. These files require the Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you will need to download and install if you don't already have it.
Many of the issues addressed in this model lease addendum were raised in the Arizona Landlord's Deskbook by Carlton C. Casler. This is a reference no Arizona landlord should be without. If you click on the title of the book, you will be taken to the publisher's page, where you can purchase it at once. It is also available at larger bookstores in the Phoenix area and can be found in the Realtor's supplies stores of any of the Phoenix-area Associations of Realtors.
