C3 multi-family housing Lease Addendum – The addendum is a legal agreement between the resident and apartment community to keep illegal activity off the property. It states tenants or their guests will not engage in illegal activity on the premises, including–but not limited to–drug activity. In the event a resident or a guest of the resident violates the addendum, the law allows the property manager to serve the resident with a 24-hour eviction notice.
