A change to an existing contract.

An amendment must be accepted and signed by all of the parties named on the original contract to be valid.

An amendment can change any aspect of the original contract, including adding entirely new clauses or deleting existing ones.

Some examples of possible amendments to an Agreement of Purchase and Sale would include changing the sale price, moving the closing date, or even correcting the spelling of somebody's name.
