deck board overhang

I am extending my current deck and have an offset of 3 ft that goes back into my house. I am attaching ledger board to house rim of first floor. My current deck is shown in the picture, but the ledger does not extend all the way to the corner. The distance from the existing ledger board to the corner is 6 inches. Do I need to place an additional ledger board for the 6 inches or can I just overhang my decking boards that far?

I am planning on "L" shaped ledger with first joist attached to the side of the house with the offset (3 foot).
