As a landlord renting a house in Southern California (Carlsbad,92009) that was just completely renovated I am starting to lease the house. I am using California Association
of Realtors (C.A.R Form LR, Revised 12/15) as supplied by my listing agent.
I have some special materials used in construction
, so I wrote an addendum to the standard that listed special care instructions and precautions for features of the house. Example: Cautions for the roofing - "don't walk on it," etc.
My intent was to supplement the vague information with instructions that provide specifics on certain parts of the house.
But I didn't want to undo basic protections in the lease. So at the top of the addendum it states, "This addendum contains supplementary information to augment the Residential Lease
Agreement. In particular this addendum supports the provisions in Paragraphs 3, 11, 17 and 42." I did this so that if we have any issue that ends up in court, that the lease takes precedence over the addenda.
regarding: P3-RENT (addenda lists my electronic bank ABA, account #), P11 - MAINTENANCE
AND USE REPORTING. P17 - ALTERATIONS; REPAIRS, P42 - OTHER TERMS & CONDITIONS.
Would you be in position to review the documents and furnish an opinion?
