Is a lease addendum valid if the lessee did not sign it or agree to it?

Sterling, CO |

I signed a lease with a LLC owned by a husband and wife. The two divorced and the wife took the properties. The wife mailed a letter that stated she was dissolving the LLC under which the lease was originated and that she would be the sole landlord. She stated that the letter served as an addendum to the lease, however I was never asked to sign the addendum. Is the lease or the addendum still valid?

Yes, the original lease is valid and the addendum is normally not valid unless you contractually agree to accept it or it is written to comply with some municipal code, HOA, etc.

Mr. Leroi is correct, however, you may want to run the document by a local attorney in case you missed something that might be helpful.
