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 contract: letter to employee

Contract variation agreement contents

The document is relatively short and easy to use. It contains among other standard paragraphs:

  • Interpretation

Easy to use, even if you have no legal knowledge

Many of our customers are lawyers, but our documents don't require you to be one. Wherever it may be needed, our guidance notes explain the purpose of each paragraph, whether we recommend changing it, and what you might like to consider before you do so.

Our view is that, when editing our documents, you shouldn't have to worry about how to add legal wording. So our documents consider a far greater range of issues than our average customer will need, and because we avoid cross referencing paragraphs, we make it easy for you simply to delete what you don't need without affecting the rest of the document.
