About this document
This is a professionally drawn, short agreement which identifies an original contract, then ties a new guarantor to it, to stand in the shoes of one of the parties.
This contract guarantee covers any situation where there has been some disagreement about a contractor's ability to complete his performance obligations. A new deal is agreed, whereby the contractor finds some other company to provide support and guarantees the performance of the contract.
Although named a guarantee document, we have also provided a structure for you to add changes to the terms of the original agreement. These could be changes to price, payment terms, completion date, penalties, quality of work, testing, or anything else.
