As yearly lease renters what are our rights as to addendums

Customer Question

As yearly lease renters what are our rights as to addendums being added to our original leases. Is there a legal amount that can be added to our leases? Are we to be obligated to accept these changes? And do they have the right to eviction if not signed? ***@******.***

I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The landlord can not simply change the terms and conditions of your while. Those will control until the lease expires. However, there is nothing wrong with the landlord wanting to add or change terms, once the lease expires and incorporate them into a new lease term and they can do that, as long as they are legal. You do not have to accept their changes and can reject them and propose an agreement but if they are firm on these and you do not agree, they can simply ask that you vacate once the lease expires.

In other words we have no rights! We have to succumb to their every whim in order to maintain our residency.

As long as what they are demanding is not illegal, then sadly you do. They, as the owners, are not forced to allow a tenant to stay, no matter how good of a tenant they are, like yourself. If they want more money, they can raise the rent or add restrictions, they can do it. I know it is not ideal but I am just being upfront and honest with you.
