    πŸ–‹οΈ Deed of rectification of contract

    A deed of rectification is a legal document that is used to correct errors in a contract. This could include misspellings, incorrect dates, or other minor errors. The deed of rectification does not change the overall meaning of the contract, but simply makes corrections to ensure that the contract accurately reflects the agreement between the parties.

    ✍️ Deed of variation of contract

    A deed of variation of contract is a legal document that allows for the terms of a contract to be changed. This can be done with the agreement of all parties involved in the contract, and can be used to modify or cancel the contract entirely. Deeds of variation are often used to make small changes to contracts, such as changing the date or location of an event, or to modify the payment terms of a contract.
