Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you talking about an addendum to an already executed contract that is asking to change some of the terms?
Or is this more of a counteroffer and there is no executed contract signed by both parties yet?
Ok, then if there is an executed offer, then it stands on its own. The addendum is just one side's offer to change or modify some of the terms or add new ones. If Party A and Party B have a signed executed written agreement, and A presents an addendum, B can simply refuse to accept it and it won't affect the agreed on already executed contract.
But if the addendum has a time limit for acceptance, then once that limit expires, it is rejected by the other party's silence.
