What is a Crime Free Lease Addendum and how do I get one?

A Crime Free Lease Addendum (PDF) is a form that you are required by ordinance to add to your existing lease (similar to a lease rider) that prohibit residents and their guests from engaging in criminal activity. This form must be signed by your resident when they renew their lease. A copy of the lease addendum you use needs to be provided to the Crime Free Coordinator at the training seminar you will be attending or you can email your addendum to Crime Free Coordinator. Note: You are required to use the crime free addendum with all your future leases.
