Overview of a Contract Addendum
What is a Contract Addendum?
A Contract Addendum is a document that adds or amends clauses of a signed contract. After signing the original contract, it is possible that the parties wish to change what they have previously agreed, for example a different pricing or some additional obligations that the parties did not foresee. A Contract Addendum sets out clearly the changes to the original contract, and that apart from those changes the contract will remain in full force and effect.
