Assignment Of Contract Form


An assignment agreement transfers ownership interest from an assignor (giving party) to an assignee (receiving party). The interest usually consists of a benefit with any included liabilities. If any payment is required, it should be mentioned in the assignment.




Assignment Of Contract Form



(6) Details Of Assignment. The assignment being released from the Assignor and being designated to the Assignee must be described. This agreement is versatile allowing nearly any type of assignment of property, a claim on property, a share of the property, or any other interest that may be transferred from one Entity to another however, the type of assignment and the level of interest that will be granted or made available to the Assignee must be documented.


(11) Assignment Is Free Of Liens. If the assignment this agreement shall enable will not include an obligation to pay a debt or satisfy an encumbrance then the first statement made in Section IV should be selected by marking the available checkbox.


(12) Assignment Not Free Of Liens. If the concerned assignment has a lien, encumbrance, or debt imposed upon it or there is a claim that must be paid for this assignment to be completed and the Assignee will assume some or all of these obligations with the assignment then select the second checkbox and provide a detailed description of such claims and/or encumbrances.


(21) Third Party Signature. If it has been indicated that a Third Party must approve this assignment by signature then the third signature area must be completed by this Party. If this is a Business then a Signature Representative that has been appointed by the Approving Entity must deliver his or her signature on behalf of the concerned Third Party.


You can use an Assignment to opt out of the rights and obligations of a contract in place of someone else as long as the original contract doesn't prohibit assignment and assumption of obligations. It's a good idea to check the original contract terms to ensure you aren't still liable for the terms of the original contract after assigning it to a new party.


Sometimes an Assignment can technically be used to transfer rights to personal or intellectual property, but, in most cases, it's best practice to use more specific forms like a Bill of Sale, a Trademark Assignment, or an Assignment of Trade Name.


The main difference between an Assignment and delegation has to do with contractual rights. Where an Assignment involves transferring the rights and duties of a contract to another party, a delegation only transfers duties.


For example, if you're a contractor remodeling a house, you'll have a written contract with the homeowner where you'll have agreed to remodel their house in exchange for money. Unless you're a contractor with skills in all trades, you'll likely hire electricians, painters, etc. to complete parts of the project. In those instances, you'd delegate tasks of the contract, e.g. electrical work, to the appropriate worker but they wouldn't be assigned contractual rights because the client will still be paying you for the remodel. You'd likely have a separate contract with the electrician that details how they'll be paid.


For example, you may be required by the second party of the original contract to get their consent before assigning contractual rights to a new party. There might also be stipulations where you remain liable for the terms of the contract even after assigning to a new party.

This Contract Assignment Agreement document is used to transfer rights and responsibilities under an original contract from one Party, known as the Assignor, to another, known as the Assignee. The Assignor who was a Party to the original contract can use this document to assign their rights under the original contract to the Assignee, as well as delegating their duties under the original contract to that Assignee. For example, a nanny who as contracted with a family to watch their children but is no longer able to due to a move could assign their rights and responsibilities under the original service contract to a new childcare provider.


Prior to using this document, the original contract is consulted to be sure that an assignment is not prohibited and that any necessary permissions from the other Party to the original contract, known as the Obligor, have been obtained. Once this has been done, the document can be used. The Agreement contains important information such as the identities of all parties to the Agreement, the expiration date (if any) of the original contract, whether the original contract requires the Obligor's consent before assigning rights and, if so, the form of consent that the Assignor obtained and when, and which state's laws will govern the interpretation of the Agreement.


If the Agreement involves the transfer of land from one Party to another, the document will include information about where the property is located, as well as space for the document to be recorded in the county's official records, and a notary page customized for the land's location so that the document can be notarized.


The assignment of contracts that involve the provision of services is governed by common law in the "Second Restatement of Contracts" (the "Restatement"). The Restatement is a non-binding authority in all of U.S common law in the area of contracts and commercial transactions. Though the Restatement is non-binding, it is frequently cited by courts in explaining their reasoning in interpreting contractual disputes.


An assignment of contract occurs when one party to an existing contract (the "assignor") hands off the contract's obligations and benefits to another party (the "assignee"). Ideally, the assignor wants the assignee to step into his shoes and assume all of his contractual obligations and rights. In order to do that, the other party to the contract must be properly notified. Read on to learn how assignments work, including how to keep an assignment option out of your contract.


How an assignment of contract plays out depends on many factors, especially the language of the contract. Some contracts may contain a clause prohibiting assignment; other contracts may require the other party to consent to the assignment.


Here's an example of a basic assignment of a contract: Tom contracts with a dairy to deliver a bottle of half-and-half to Tom's house every day. The dairy assigns Tom's contract to another dairy, and--provided Tom is notified of the change and continues to get his daily half-and-half--his contract is now with the new dairy.


An assignment doesn't always relieve the assignor of liability. Some contracts may include a guarantee that, regardless of an assignment, the original parties (or one of them) guarantees performance (that is, that the assignee will fulfill the terms of the contract).


The assignment materially alters what's expected under the contract. If the assignment affects the performance due under the contract, decreases the value or return anticipated, or increases the risks for the other party to the contract (the party who is not assigning contractual rights), courts are unlikely to enforce the arrangement. For instance, if Tom's local, organic dairy assigned the contract to a factory farm dairy, this would be considered a material alteration.


The assignment violates the law or public policy. Some laws limit or prohibit assignments. For example, many states prohibit the assignment of future wages by an employee, and the federal government prohibits the assignment of certain claims against the government. Other assignments, though not prohibited by a statute, may violate public policy. For example, personal injury claims cannot be assigned because doing so may encourage litigation.


In some cases, a party may not wish to assign the contract but only to get somebody else to fulfill its duties. Obviously, not all duties can be delegated--for example, some personal services are usually not delegated because they are so specific in nature. For example, if you hired Ted Nugent to perform at your event, he could not arbitrarily delegate his performing duties to Lady Gaga. To prohibit one party from delegating the responsibilities of the contract, the parties should include specific language to that effect in the agreement. For example, an anti-assignment clause might state, "Neither party shall assign or delegate its rights."
