Customer Question

I am looking to buy an extended warranty for my car. They sent me a PDF of the terms. Can I edit those terms and then sign it and send it back? Do I have to point out any changes I made?

Hi! My name is Fred and I'll be the attorney assisting you.

Yes, you can edit and send the contract back - but it's doubtful they will accept AND, because you edited the contract you have made a "counter offer" to them.

You would have to "initial" any and all changes made on the contract you send back to them. So, in reality, you are giving them notice of any and all changes.

Then they would have to "initial" the changes too and execute the document before there would be a contract.

Thanks. That's what I figured. So much for counting on their laziness...

Expert:  Law Pro replied 4 years ago.
Yeah, I understand. But that would be the same for any and all contracts - that any changes would have to be "changed and initialed" - thereby giving notice to the other party AND memorializing the changes that you made in writing.

Because - if not done - then presumptively the contract is as they sent to you originally.
