When is there a modification to a contract under Florida law?

People and businesses in Florida enter into a variety of different contracts each year. The types of contracts depend on the type of business, but every contract involves at least two parties each agreeing to do something or pay for something in exchange for the other party doing something. At the very basic level this is the basis of every contract, but the actions required to actually execute the terms of the contract can be very complicated. They can also take time and circumstances may change after the original contract is signed.

These unique differences are usually what companies promote to stand out from the other companies, and therefore they want to keep those secrets out of the hands of competitors.

However, the developments need to be built first and the construction can take time, which is expected. Many times, these condos are sold before the construction is complete.
