This Request to Alter Contract due to COVID-19/Coronavirus, also sometimes called a Letter to Request to Alter Contract, can be used by parties to a contract that has been affected by the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic. It enables one party to the contract to ask the other party for a change or amendment to that contract.
This document may be used in relation to any kind of contract. It is not the actual amendment document for the contract - in other words, it's not the piece of paper that will actually change the underlying agreement - it's just the first step for a party to open negotiations about when an existing contract needs to be changed or an addition needs to be made.
This letter is relatively simple, as the actual document to change a contract will come later. For the process of changing a contract, first, the party sends this letter requesting a change. In it, the basics of the requested change are entered, as well as a reference to the portion of the original contract that is being amended. Then, if the other party agrees, the parties will draw up an actual amendment document, sign it, and incorporate it in the original contract as an addendum.
To request general contract amendments (not related to COVID-19/Coronavirus), we have a Request to Alter Contract available.
We have a Contract Amendment document available, which may be used to actually amend a contract (after having sent this document). We also have a COVID-19/Coronavirus Employment Contract Amendment, which may be used to amend an employment contract due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic.
How to use this document
This document can be used in any situation where a party to a contract would like to request an alteration of the contract from the other party who has signed it.
In this document, the parties' names and contact information (like address and email address) will be entered. Then, basic details of the contract will be entered, such as the date it was signed and its subject matter. Finally, the specifics of the requested alteration will be entered.
Once it has been completed, a copy may be sent to the other party. The party preparing this document may keep a copy for their own reference.
There are no specific laws which govern what needs to go in a request for an alteration of contract. General principles of contract law, as provided by the common law, may apply though.
