The role of addendums in a contract

Frequently asked questions

What are the rules for addendums?
Addendums should clearly identify the original contract, specify the changes being made, and obtain the signatures of both parties to be legally bound. Also, addendums should comply with any applicable laws or regulations.
What are the advantages of addendums?
The main advantages of addendums are that they allow modifications to existing contracts without drafting an entirely new agreement, saving time and resources. They provide flexibility to adapt contracts to changing circumstances while maintaining the original contract's validity.
What does an addendum include?
An addendum typically includes details identifying the original contract, parties involved, and the specific clauses or terms being modified or added.
Why is addendum required?
An addendum is required when changes must be made to an existing contract after execution. This could be due to changing requirements, evolving circumstances, mistakes, or omissions in the original contract.
Does an addendum amend a contract?
Yes, an addendum amends a contract by modifying, altering, or expanding some of the initially agreed-upon terms. But it does not change to the original document.
