Court limits the ways in which a written contract can be changed

Many contracts contain a clause which says words to the effect that ;-

"any variations to this agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties " . 

The Court has now held that if a contract contains such a clause , then  any attempts to orally change the contract will be ineffective . 

Whilst the decision provides certainty to the parties , it does mean that anyone wishing to vary a contract should ensure they do so strictly in accordance with the procedures laid down in the contract .
