Madison, AL asked in Contracts for Alabama

Q: If a home builder changes the date of closing to tbd. I didn't sign that contract. Is it valid?

I signed the original contract with a close date of 9/16/21. The builder changed the close date to tbd. Now we can't get a close date in writing.

A: Generally, a contract will control the relationship between the parties unless modified. There are multiple ways to modify a contract under Alabama Law. The language of your executed agreement may have an effect on what methods are available to modify the agreement. In order to fully understand your rights, I suggest that you meet with a licensed attorney and review the specific language of the contract.
