In the Manasse case, two of the three members of the Court found that the “amendment and reformulation” contributed to the replacement (and thus at the end) of the old facility agreement which referred to the guarantee. Since the guarantor had not given his consent to the replacement body, his guarantee did not extend to it. A modification of the contract is annexed to the initial contract and modifies the initial general conditions. It replaces the indicated part of the original contract. Use an edit to change the details of the original contract after it has been executed by both parties. For example, use a change if both parties agree to extend the term of the contract. in the case of works or supply contracts, an amendment shall relate to changes made before the contracts were awarded; an amendment is the name of each amendment made after the contracts have been awarded. The bank claimed that a guarantee given for the purposes of the facility, as initially documented, extended to the “modified and adapted” facility agreement that came into force as a result of defaults as a global financial crisis. It was a lot about the interpretation of the facility documents and the guarantee itself, although the case is as interesting for financiers, lawyers as it is for guarantors, given that it was a standard guarantee used by one of the four big banks and the situation is frequent in practice.
Justice Kennedy (as she did at the time) found (in favour of the borrower) that the second facility agreement replaced the first facility agreement and, second, that the “mortgage documents” had not been “shipped” within the meaning of the second facility agreement until that agreement had been sent by the lender itself to the borrower. Accordingly, the relevant “sending” took place on March 20, 2012, the “start of interest rates” was March 27, 2012, the “repayment date” was 15 months later, June 27, 2013, and the loan was therefore repaid on time. Use an addendum to add information that was agreed after the parties agreed on the terms of the contract. For example, in real estate contracts, an endorsement can be used to add a spouse as a co-owner to a sales contract. In its decision, the Court reaffirmed the recognised principle that an agreement to “amend” an existing agreement may either modify the existing agreement without altering its existence, or that it may terminate and replace the existing agreement. This question is based on the objective intentions of the parties.
