Highlight

When a district court has made sufficient findings that demonstrate intent, mutual assent, and sufficient consideration among the parties to substitute a new obligation for an existing one, a finding of novation by the court is not clearly erroneous.

The terms of a contract, the character of the transaction, and the facts and circumstances surrounding the transaction can establish novation.

Parties entering into a novation need not agree about the meaning or terms within the original obligation.
