Construction of contract — Formation of contract — Waiver and damages

This chapter explicates the modification of contacts. The general principles of freedom, statutory form requirements, and contract formation are applied when it comes to modifying contracts. Severe restrictions on modifications could be found in common law legal systems. Moreover, the chapter lists waiver, practical benefit, and abandoning consideration requirements as variations of contracts. Parties regularly agree on a no-oral medication clause in the recent commercial practice. The chapter notes the possible approach of protecting a party’s reasonable reliance on the modification, which is found in the common law legal systems.
