This contract amendment can be used to amend an existing contract. It is not designed to be used as a standalone contract.

It can be used to document revisions, additions and deletions to the terms and conditions of an active fully executed contract.

An amendment does not replace the entire original contract, just the part that is changed by the amendment.

If there only need to be several changes to a contract, it is much easier to create an amendment than to create an entirely new contract from scratch.

How to use this document

This amendment should include information such as:

  • the parties involved
  • the execution date of the original contract
  • the effective date of the amendment
  • the part of the contract which is being changed
  • the nature of the change (addition, deletion, edit etc)

Be sure to be as specific as possible, and to include the subsection numbers and names if there are any in the original contract.

Once the amendment has been completed, it should be signed by both parties. Both parties will need to have their respective signatures witnessed by an independent adult witness. This means that the witness(es) must not be a party to this agreement (for example, the parties cannot witness each other's signatures). The witness(es) must also be over 18 years of age.

The amendment should then be filed and maintained with the original contract so that anyone looking at the contract will know that it has been amended and is therefore no longer representative of the entirety of the agreement.

Applicable Law

General principles of contract law apply to contract amendments.
