One of the most asked questions on CAA’s Helpline is “Which Addenda Do I Need?”

It’s a simple enough question, but there is no one-size-fits-all answer.

Which Addenda Do I Need? Live Webinar – April 19, 2023

Webinar also available on-demand after the live recording.

Although no new addenda are required in 2023, CAA did revise the form of all its rental /lease agreement addenda by removing the repetitive top block (which named the residents and landlord and identified the property) to shorten all these forms.

Determining which addenda are required depends on many factors including:

  • Applicability of AB 1482 rent control and just cause
  • The type of rental unit
  • When the rental unit was built
  • The location of the rental unit
  • The property owner’s policies
  • The resident’s activities
