What is an Amendment To Purchase Agreement?

An amendment to purchase agreement is a legal document that outlines a significant change or multiple changes to an original purchase agreement. The modification to the purchase agreement in a real estate context can take place when appraisals turn out to be different than expected or when a buyer or seller decides to exchange one concession for another.

An amendment to a purchase agreement is different from an addendum to a purchase agreement. An amendment makes changes to the original purchase agreement, whereas an addendum adds something additional or clarifies information from the original purchase agreement.
