Lease Renewal Form

The lease renewal agreement is a convenient way to formalize the extension of the original rental term.

It may be stipulated in the original agreement that the lease shall be automatically renewed after the initial term, on a month to month basis and under the same conditions.

The landlord could include a provision for annual escalation in the rent.

However, the tenant and landlord may prefer to have an agreement for another year, as opposed to the month to month arrangement. The lease renewal agreement negates the need to prepare a whole new document, whilst still allowing for amendments to the original agreement.

Tenants invariably anticipate an annual increase in rent. The property owner should increase the rent regularly by relatively small amounts and keep the rental market related, rather than implementing a big increase after a couple of years.

The landlord must also decide whether an increased security deposit should be stipulated in the renewal document and which other amendments must be provided for.

Note: A rental application form, rental agreement and guarantor agreement can be accessed from our Main Real Estate Contracts page.
