What is a side agreement?

side or beneficiary agreement

A side agreement is an agreement that is not part of the underlying or primary contract or agreement, and which some or all parties to the contract use to reach an agreement on issues the primary contract does not cover or for which they require clarification, or to amend the primary contract. Under the law of contracts, an aside or beneficiary agreement has the same force as the underlying or primary contract. However, the validity of the beneficiary agreement has been denied by some courts in specific circumstances. these side agreements are often used in financial or property transactions or other commercial contracts. They are usually in the form of a letter signed by parties signatory to the primary contract but can also be an oral agreement.
