Property Manager is responsible for reviewing all Monthly Invoices and to provide notice to Agent within five (5) days of receipt should there be any discrepancy with respect to the Units for which Property Manager wishes to be enrolled in Deposit Replacement Coverage and any charges indicated on such Monthly Invoices. Agent shall make a good faith effort to provide an adjustment on future Monthly Invoices as soon as commercially reasonable. Failure of Property Manager to provide adequate notice of any discrepancy as a result of Property Manager’s inaccurate data shall result in Property Manager’s forfeiture of the right to receive any future credit on such Monthly Invoices. 

4.1.3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, should the authorized ACH debit for Monthly Invoices fail or Property Manager and/or Property otherwise fails to pay undisputed amounts on such invoices within fifteen (15) days of such billing, the Monthly Invoice may be subject to one and a half percent (1.5%) monthly fee, or the maximum permitted by applicable law or contract (“Late Fee”).

Agent shall not be responsible for any failure of Agent’s Program resulting from or related to the untimely or inaccurate submission of Data by Property Managers to the PMS or to Agent.

Agent makes no guarantee that all PMS are available for integration.

During the audit, Property Manager shall provide reasonable assistance and access to all relevant records, documents, and personnel necessary for the proper conduct of the audit. Agent shall treat all information obtained during the audit as confidential and shall use it solely for the purpose of the audit. Property Manager acknowledges and agrees to cooperate fully with Agent during the audit process, including providing any additional information or documentation reasonably requested by Agent. This Right to Audit provision is intended to protect the interests of both parties and ensure transparency and accountability in their business relationship.

This Addendum is attached to and a part of the «lease_generated_on» Lease Agreement. In consideration of the Resident’s payment to the Owner of a Security Deposit Waiver Fee (“Security Deposit Waiver Fee”) with each monthly installment payment in addition to all other amounts owed under the Lease Agreement in the amount of «$XX.00», the Owner hereby waives any and all obligations of the Resident to provide a cash security deposit to be held by the Owner as otherwise required under the Lease Agreement. This waiver does not constitute insurance. The Owner is not an insurance company nor an insurance producer. The Owner is merely waiving, in consideration of the Security Deposit Waiver Fee, the obligations of Resident to provide a cash security deposit as otherwise required under the Lease Agreement. The Security Deposit Waiver Fee shall not be prorated for any partial month(s) and shall be posted to Resident’s account with any installment payment due covering any period(s) of time when the resident has not provided a cash security deposit acceptable to Owner. Should resident fail to pay the monthly Security Deposit Waiver Fee, the full cash deposit will be immediately due, otherwise Resident will be in violation of the Lease Agreement, and we may immediately exercise all other lawful remedies, including eviction. 

Resident acknowledges and understands that Owner may elect to purchase third-party insurance to indemnify, protect and insure Owner against risk of loss from a default by the Resident under the Lease Agreement, which loss may have been avoided had the Resident provided a cash security deposit acceptable to Owner. Resident acknowledges and understands that in the event that a third-party insurer makes a payment to Owner as a consequent of a default by the Resident, the insurer will be subrogated to Owner’s right to be paid such defaulted amounts and Resident expressly agrees to pay or reimburse insurer for the amounts paid by the insurer to Owner related to such default, together with any costs of collection, including reasonable attorney’s fees. Owner may collect any money owed exceeding coverage amount, including money deducted from claim for unpaid Security Deposit Waiver Fees by resident. I HAVE READ AND AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS ADDENDUM.
