Endorsements are far from being a quick fix to certain business problems or needs. They must be carefully thought out, thoughtful and formulated if one is not to cause more problems than they solve. In a sense, nothing is worse than a dispute over a settlement agreement or an endorsement, because the parties naturally tried to agree and close deals and did not want to spend money or management time on resolving issues. Beware of exchanging letters or agreeing on the back of a bundle of that doesn`t settle or solve anything. Finally, it is worth thinking about dispute settlement. An amendment cannot be considered as a construction contract for the work. This may mean that an adjudicator cannot identify disputes about this. It is important that, when an amendment is envisaged, the employer and the contractor appoint a legal representative experienced in construction contracts to design and agree on the content of an amendment. In the event that the employer decides, as the work progresses, that it is necessary to carry out additional work in a sufficiently significant manner or in such a way that it does not consider it appropriate simply to give the order to an architect, he may wish to do so by means of a supplementary agreement.
Second, the parties need to think about what lawyers call the «quid pro quo» of the cases. The thinking is what each party puts into the agreement, and that is what the court will impose if asked to do so. Normally, this is considered in terms of positive actions, the obligation to do something or pay for something. However, in this difficult market, this may include what we call indulgence: not doing something or not enforcing a right or requirement that would otherwise be enforced. It is more natural that this type of agreement should be developed with care. However, there may be other reasons why the implementation of a supplementary agreement by instrument is a good step in such circumstances. One of them could be due to the fact that the underlying contract is itself an act and that there is an argument that an act can only be modified by a single act and not by a simple contract. The second reason why a document might be more appropriate is that the parties negotiate and compromise rights and claims arising from more than one contract. In these circumstances, a formal document should be more useful in the long run. An addendum (SA) is a formal agreement between the contracting parties amending the treaty.
Sometimes the endorsement is a simple exchange of letters and the focus is on solving the immediate problem, instead of ensuring that the rest of the project goes smoothly If a contractor changes its legal name, it must inform the department so that any incomplete contract can be changed to reflect the new legal name. A supplementary agreement is used for the implementation of the Treaty amendment. The third issue raised is how a supplementary agreement is executed. . . .
