Difference between addendum and amendment?

Does it matter which one you use to reduce the monthly rent originally from $2,500 to $2,000?

The title of the document does not matter.

You should review the written lease, especially the paragraphs that cover the procedure for "written modifications" to the lease.

If the document reducing the rent complies with the provisions of the lease governing "written modifications," then the written rent reduction will be legally valid regardless of its title.
