About this document

This mutual cancellation agreement formalises the cancellation of any agreement or contract and safeguards the interests of the parties. It will most frequently be used post 'fall out' of the parties – that is, disagreement, for whatever reason. Where 'termination' is provided for in the original document, this mutual cancellation agreement overwrites those provisions.

The document has been drawn with the presumption that there prevails enough goodwill among the parties to deal sensibly with the process of calling off an existing contract. If the parties are beyond simple negotiation, they should seek professional help with dispute resolution.

The agreement provided a good framework that allowed it to be adjusted to suit the required purpose. The wording was in plain English and easy to understand. Access to the agreement was easy and fast and the cost was very reasonable. I would use the Net Lawman service again.
