(a) the addition or return of property in a multiple-item agreement or in the substitution of the rental property, if in either case the average payment allocable to a payment period is not changed by more than 25%;

(b) a deferral or extension of one or more periodic payments or portions of a periodic payment;

(c) a reduction in charges in the agreement; or

(d) an agreement involved in a court proceeding.

(2) An extension of an agreement is not a renegotiation.
