Most standard leases contain a number of provisions that permit the landlord to amend the terms of the lease without the tenant’s consent.  Examples include the subordination provision which makes the lease subordinate to any loans on the property and permits the landlord to modify the terms of the lease if required by the lender.  Also, many times landlords reserve the right to add new rules and regulations to the lease which restrict the tenants’ rights or increase their obligations.  Some leases provide that the landlord has the right to relocate the premises, to increase the required insurance or to terminate the lease early if the landlord wants to redevelop the property.  Tenants need to carefully review new leases to limit their landlord’s ability to change the terms of the lease without their consent.
