Addendum to Inkster Lease 11-20-19

Supplemental Housing During Repairs/Renovation
This addendum is made this 20th day of November 2019 by and between Raj Patel
for Owner, hereinafter referred to as the LANDLORD, and Janice P. Gersham, hereinafter
referred to as the TENANT. The Rental Property is located at 21480 Inkster Road,
Southfield, MI 48033.

available for occupancy due to the lack of a certificate of occupancy, the TENANT has had

and from school. Furthermore, the Tenant has incurred additional expense paying for
food on a daily basis for lunch and dinner which would not be the case is the TENANT
was occupying the Rental Property. The TENANT has also had to adjust her work
schedule to drop off and pick up the children at their schools.

Parties during the additional time needed to repair/renovate the plumbing and any other
repairs/renovations needed so that the Rental Property will be issued a Certificate of
