About this contract variation agreement
This is an easy to use document that can be used to make changes to any contract. Using this agreement, you can add, delete or change words or entire sections.
We recommend using an agreement such as this one to change terms rather than agreeing the new terms verbally as having the agreement in writing provides a record of your agreed position should any dispute arise later.
When to use this contract variation agreement
This document can be used to change the terms of any contract provided:
- All parties to the original contract agree to the changes and sign the document;
- You are not trying to vary a personal will;
- You are not trying to change the parties to the contract (use a deed of novation instead).
Commonly, this agreement would be used where there has been an unforeseen change in circumstances (such as increases in the price of raw materials), or in purpose or objective of the contract.
It can be used to vary the terms of an employment contract, but Net Lawman offers more tailored versions for this purpose at: Variation of employment terms: letter to employee
