When you’re creating an extension to a lease agreement, it generally means that you are happy with your current tenant and wish to continue with the lease that the two of you have signed. That’s great news and we love seeing these created here on Landlord Forms.
The nice thing is much like your tenant isn’t a hassle, creating a lease agreement extension our site isn’t a hassle either. Like all of the landlord forms we offer, it is incredibly ease to create said form and should take you mere minutes.
How Do I Extend A Lease Agreement?
Extending a lease agreement is an extremely easy process.
Generally when you are extending a lease agreement that means there are no changes to the lease agreement outside of rent or if there is a prorate payment. However if there is any modifications you can add them in as well. You would just have to clearly state that you are making those modifications to the original lease agreement.
If you’ve created a lease agreement in the past you know the general data required. You need to put in the landlords name and address, as well as the tenants name and address and the address of the premises.
It is common for landlords to attach a copy of the original lease just for reference to the lease agreement extension. Always nice to refresh you and your tenants memory.
If you are doing that, you should mention in the lease agreement extension document you create that a copy of the original lease is attached. Regardless of whether you attach it or not you do need to provide details of the original lease for reference. These details should include stating the start and end date of the existing lease, as well as when it was originally signed.
If you are creating the form on our website and aren’t sure of those details you also have the option of leaving it blank and it will input a blank line which you can then fill in later on.
You then need to provide details about the lease extension. This is very simple however – you’re simply stating the start date of the lease extension and the end date of the lease extension. Again you can leave those fields blank if you use our system and fill them in later.
The amount of rent payments can change when a lease ends so you can charge a different amount if you wish. If so you need to specify everything like you did when you created the original lease agreement. This means that you would need to put in the new amount of rent, and how often it will be paid as well as when it will be paid.
Finally if there is a prorate payment you can add in details of that – the amount, and the date that the Prorated Payment goes up to.
That’s it. Then you and your tenant both sign it and you’ve got yourself a brand new lease agreement extension.

Do you have a Free Version of your Lease Agreement Extension?
Unfortunately we do not offer free lease agreement extension forms.
The reason is that a blank template of a lease agreement extension form could be confusing simply because there are sections that don’t apply to you. Plus allowing you the ability to completely customize a lease agreement extension makes life easier for you.
Let’s use rent payments as an example as they are a common one. If we were creating a sample lease agreement extension for free for you to use, we’d have to include a section about rent payments. However rent payments can vary – you may wish to accept rent weekly, annually or monthly. Or you may wish to receive it on the first of the month or the last day of the month. Or you may not even be looking to change the rent amount or payment schedule.
We’d have to attempt to cram every single variable in there in regard to rent payments. Then it requires a lot of work on your part as you would have to go through the entire document and remove or modify sections of it.
Basically while it might seem easier – when you think about it it really isn’t. Our system is set up to ask you the questions required to create a lease agreement extension template and then it will create it to your exact customizations and demands. So whatever you need in a residential lease agreement extension or a commercial one – we’ve got you covered. Our system makes it incredibly easy to create it and you can do as many lease extension agreements as you wish of course.
