Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today.

The answer to your question is no, the contract is not enforceable in this case. Every part must agree to all of the material terms of the agreement and any changing of the agreement after the contract is signed is not enforceable until the party in the second part assents (agrees) to those additional terms. The modification can be done orally or in writing, but there must be some evidence the second party, either through words or conduct, agrees to those additional terms.

What other questions did you have for me today?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
