Document Overview

This Letter Agreement assumes there is an existing agreement between two parties and both wish to release each other from their liabilities and obligations under that agreement. For a one-way release, see the Deed of Release and Waiver.

What's the difference between a release and a waiver?

“Release” and “waiver” can have different meanings. In this precedent, a “release” relieves one party of its obligations and liabilities and a “waiver” occurs when one party gives up its rights to take action or enforce its rights under a contract against the other party. The distinction between a release and a waiver is that the latter is more usually confined to situations where one party is in breach of an obligation. This release should not be confused with a waiver clause, the aim of which is that, if a party fails to take action in respect of a breach, it does not lose its rights to take action in respect of the instant breach or any subsequent breaches. A waiver clause will typically make it clear that any failure or delay in exercising a right under the agreement will not constitute a waiver of that right.

This Deed is not intended to apply in any employment context. For a deed of release applicable to the termination of an employment relationship, see:
