As regards contracts between traders, it is not necessary to support a change by consideration. In accordance with Article 2, Section 209, of the UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE, this rule is intended to respect the intention of the commercial parties, without the need for technical aspects of reflection. Treaty changes occur for a number of reasons. Some common reasons why you want to change an agreement are: a treaty change is any change, in whole or in part, that is concluded to a legally binding agreement between two or more parties. Any contract can be changed before or after the agreement is signed, but all parties must accept the changes. If a party does not accept the change, the changes are not valid. Everyone concludes contracts at different times in their private or commercial life. The courts write this requirement in order to avoid fraud and deception in the modification of contracts. The consideration is considered as proof that the parties have accepted the amendment. In the absence of consideration, a party could declare that the contract would have to be modified or terminated if such a claim was advantageous. An amendment to the treaty may be made either in writing or orally, with a few exceptions. An oral amendment is not applicable if the treaty provides that the amendments must be made in writing (United States ex rel.
Crane Co. v. Progressive Enterprises, Inc., 418 F. Supp. 662 [E.D. Va. 1976]). As a general rule, a change must be made in writing when it increases or reduces the value of the contract by $500 or more. A treaty change is a mutually agreed change to the original treaty. Their amendments must fall within the scope of the amending clause and without prejudice to the original object and effect of the Treaty. When negotiating a contract, you can modify the agreement if necessary, as long as all parties agree.
Bilateral amendments may include a supplementary agreement, an official document called a treaty amendment. It may be necessary to amend a contract for other reasons that go beyond the needs of the parties involved. For example, an amendment to the contract may be necessary if a legal requirement requires it or if a judge considers that an amendment is necessary. From time to time, a contract contains a language that prohibits any subsequent changes in the future. For example, the contract may contain a clause stating that “this contract is not subject to any future modification”. If this is the case, it is likely that the other party will not accept any changes. The parties are obliged to respect the treaty as it is, as long as it is not unjust or illegal. If an initial contract contains instructions for making changes, the parties must comply with those instructions. If all parties accept the amendment and receive such changes in writing, the changes to the contract will be enforceable in court. Oral amendments generally cannot be imposed by law. Generally speaking, a modification of the contract should be made in writing if the amendment changes the value of the contract by USD 500 or more.
