Termination Agreement Information

A Termination Agreement is also known as a:

  • Notice of cancellation of contract
  • Termination of contract
  • Cancellation agreement template

What is a Termination Agreement?

A Termination Agreement is a document that provides a formal record for the cancellation of a contract. It affirms that all parties involved in the contract have agreed to its cancellation. This agreement relinquishes all parties from their outstanding contractual obligations.

Can you cancel a contract after signing it?

If all parties involved agree to the dissolution of a contract, you may be able to cancel it.

In cancelling the contract, you must follow all rules and guidelines established in the original document. If all parties involved in a contract agree to its cancellation, you can create a Termination Agreement, bringing the contract to an end. All parties to the original contract must sign the Termination Agreement to end the contract.

Certain types of contracts have a “cooling off” period that allows parties to reconsider the agreement after signing it. You might hear people refer to this as a trial period. During this time, you can cancel the contract without giving a reason.

For example, if you sign a cell phone contract, you may have 15 days to change your mind after the contract begins depending on your province and provider. Typically, you must reach out to the company and provide written notice within the trial period.

Additionally, if the other party involved in the contract doesn’t uphold their end of the contract, you may be able to terminate the contract. This includes the other party breaching the contract’s terms, like not upholding their part of a service or your purchased item not working as advertised. While your ability to cancel a contract depends on the contract and the breach, there’s a good chance that if the purpose of the contract is not fulfilled, you’re not obligated to uphold your end.

How do you write a letter to cancel a contract?

To create a Termination Agreement and effectively terminate a contract, you and the other party must agree to end the contract. Using LawDepot’s Termination Agreement template, you can select the province of the original contract. Because different provinces have different governing laws and requirements, we customize each document for your jurisdiction.

Next, provide the names and mailing addresses of each party involved. You will also need to provide details from the original contract. Include the date the contract was signed and the purpose of the original contract.

Select a termination date after which the contract will no longer be in effect. You can choose today, the signing date of the termination agreement, or a date in the future. If you’re not sure about the date, select “Unsure” and fill it in later.

The template will prompt you to state if either party is providing any compensation as part of the Termination Agreement. If so, select the party providing compensation and state the compensation they are providing.

To finalize your document, you can select the date the involved parties will sign the agreement. You should also determine if you require witnesses to sign the agreement.

When does a Termination Agreement become effective?

You have the freedom to decide when a Termination Agreement comes into effect. However, both parties must agree on the date. You must also specify the date within the contract.

You can choose the Termination Agreement to come into effect today or you can specify a date. You can also choose to have the Termination Agreement come into effect when all the parties sign the document. This allows the document to be post-dated, meaning it will not come into effect until a later date.

If you aren’t sure when you want the contract to terminate officially, we also provide an option to leave the date blank, allowing you to fill it in later.
