Condition of premises addendum

A residential landlord has the statutory duty to maintain the rented premises in a habitable condition at all times. Similarly, a tenant has the statutory duty to refrain from damaging the premises and advise the landlord of adverse conditions which come about during the tenancy. [CC §§1941, 1941.2]

To avoid disputes over who is responsible for any damage to the premises, the residential landlord and tenant complete and sign a Condition of Premises Addendum before the tenant is given possession. [See RPI Form 560]

The Condition of Premises Addendum published by RPI is used by a property manager or landlord when conducting a pre-occupancy inspection with a residential tenant who enters into a rental or lease agreement, to document the condition of the premises and state the landlord’s obligation to make any promised repairs. [See RPI Form 560]

Before a tenant takes possession, the landlord or their manager needs to conduct a walk-through of the unit with the tenant. Together, the landlord (or property manager) and the tenant will use the Condition of Premises Addendum to note:

  • whether the premises is in satisfactory condition;
  • any existing damage to the premises; and
  • any repairs the landlord is to make to the premises before the tenant takes possession. [SeeRPI Form 560]

Similarly, when the unit is furnished, the landlord and tenant complete and sign an additional form on their pre-occupancy walk-through called a Condition of Furnishings Addendum. The Condition of Furnishings Addendum notes:

  • the inventory of furnishings located in the unit;
  • the current condition of the furnishings; and
  • the tenant’s acceptance of the furnishings. [SeeRPI Form 561]

Within 30 days before the end of a residential tenancy, the Condition of Premises Addendum is reviewed during the pre-expiration inspection to help establish tenant responsibility for excess wear and tear to the unit rented.
