Agreement Titles

Revised agreements. Sometimes a treaty no longer reflects the way the parties collaborate or are so often modified that the overview is scattered in various amendments or additions. Similarly, long-term agreements, such as successful joint ventures, sometimes provide for renegotiation after a first term. In these circumstances, it may be desirable both to review the whole agreement and to stress that existing trade relations continue without inconsistencies or interruptions. To emphasize consistency with current practice, new agreements will receive a suffix in their title (z.B. Restated Joint Venture Agreement). For example, redefining a joint enterprise agreement would emphasize that the parties are committed to a high level of loyal faith, rooted in a historically exceptional level of mutual trust. Similarly, a redefinition may support discussions with a third party, namely that a contractual agreement after the sale is in fact the continuation of undocumented intra-company transactions. Each contract should receive a name (or title). As a general rule, it is prominently placed on the cover (if it exists), at the top of the first page (either as a lead-in to the parts or, if there is no cover, as a real title) and probably also in the foot of each page.

On the envelope and the first page, it is often printed in bold and capitalized (although it does not refer to a definition, as the terms do in bulk). The term agreement in the title is more common than the term contract. There is no difference in meaning. If you buy real estate, you will quickly hear a number of terms throw around. Most people tend to assume that deeds of ownership and titles are the same thing, but they actually refer to two distinct legal concepts. If you own a complete property, you will own both the deed and the title. But a title is different from an act. Mixing the two can cause problems if you don`t know what you`re using. Selecting a title. The title of a contract should reflect only the nature or central purpose of the contract and indicate whether it is a licence, confidentiality agreement or other contract.
