Parking Addendum to Lease Agreement

This addendum to the Lease dated as of the Lease Date, by and between Landlord and Tenant, is attached as if a part of said Lease and agreed to by the Parties as follows:

Parking is available for an additional fee. Prices may vary by location, spot size, and other features. Parking may be available in surface lots or parking garages depending on your community and the location of your premises within said community. Landlord reserves the right to change the type and location of parking at any time and for any reason.

Parking is available for tenants via the Parkade app, at the price(s) shown. Upon thirty (30) days written notice to Tenant, Landlord may, at its sole discretion, change the fees for parking — and Landlord has the right to delegate communication to Parkade.

  8. All parking spaces on the property are only available to be reserved by residents, and residents may only park in spots they have expressly been given consent to park in.
