Cancelling or changing contracts requires mutual consent of all parties and a document in which the changes can be recorded so that they remain binding in law. Although we can't provide a solution for the former, we do provide several alternatives for the latter, so you should be able to find one that meets your needs.
Cancelling or changing contracts
Transfer a service contract between customers using this easy to use and effective novation contract. The agreement is structured as a deed for greatest flexibility. Although this deed of novation can be used to transfer any service contract, we have used the example of a transfer of website hosting services between customers of an ISP in this agreement. Changes for other types of service agreement are very simple to make. The most common use for this agreement would be to change the parties to service contracts on the purchase of a business.
This settlement and release agreement (often called a compromise agreement) is suitable where the supplier has delivered unsatisfactory (faulty or unsuitable) goods or services and has agreed to settle for a specified and reduced final payment.
As drawn, it provides for either payment to be made by the customer and for the goods or services to remain with the customer, or for the supplier to remove the goods or services and for the customer to pay nothing. Either way, there is flexibility for both parties.
This agreement effectively overwrites any previous agreement between the parties - whether written or verbal.
This agreement is suitable between businesses only.
Both parties could be in Canada, or one could be abroad.
