84-1-107. Section captions. Section captions are part of the uniform commercial code.

History: L. 2007, ch. 89, § 7; July 1, 2008.

KANSAS COMMENT, 1996

At common law, a release from liability for breach of contract was not effective unless it was under seal or given in exchange for consideration. See Weathers v. Kansas City Bridge Co., 99 K. 632, 162 P. 957 (1917); 5A Corbin, Contracts § 1238 (1964). This section changes that rule and provides that renunciations in writing are enforceable without consideration. A similar rule has now been adopted by the Restatement (Second) Contracts § 277(1). This section applies throughout the entire Code, and is not limited to contracts for the sale of goods. Compare 84-2-209(1) (modification of sales contracts enforceable without consideration).

Revisor's Note:

Former section 84-1-107 was repealed by L. 2007, ch. 89, § 49 and the number reassigned to the current text.
