If the tenant wishes to make changes to the property that have not already been agreed in the lease, the tenant must obtain written permission from the landlord. Tenants and landlords must record their agreement on an additional copy of Part E of the long-term lease (Form 2). Whether you are creating a lease or a lease, you will need to abide by your landlord and tenant law. If you include a clause in your agreement that is illegal under your state`s landlord-tenant law, it is not binding even if the tenant has signed the agreement. .
