13 Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes § 2a208 - Modification, Rescission And Waiver

§ 2A208. Modification, rescission and waiver.

(a) Consideration unnecessary for modification.--An agreement modifying a lease contract needs no consideration to be binding.

(b) Writing excluding modification or rescission.--A signed lease agreement that excludes modification or rescission except by a signed writing may not be otherwise modified or rescinded, but, except as between merchants, such a requirement on a form supplied by a merchant must be separately signed by the other party.

(c) Ineffective modification or rescission as waiver.-- Although an attempt at modification or rescission does not satisfy the requirements of subsection (b), it may operate as a waiver.

(d) Retraction of waiver.--A party who has made a waiver affecting an executory portion of a lease contract may retract the waiver by reasonable notification received by the other party that strict performance will be required of any term waived, unless the retraction would be unjust in view of a material change of position in reliance on the waiver.
