Amending a contract comes with all the legal formalities of forming the initial agreement. Below are some steps to amending a contract:
See what it says about amendments. Follow the contract.
Discuss your proposed amendment. Make sure you agree with the other party.
Write, “Agreement to ______________" at the top of the relevant page. Enter the names and titles of parties involved.
Clearly state in a sentence or two the purpose of the amendment.
That both parties are agreeing to amend this contract on such-and-such date and such-and-such time.
Clearly describe the changes in the amendment. Make sure to note the name or number of the section that is being revised.
