Supersedes Any Previous Agreement

This agreement, as well as the transaction documents, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties on all matters covered in this agreement. The parties acknowledge that this agreement was negotiated on the basis that « this instrument contains the entire agreement of the parties regarding the purpose of this agreement and that there is no other commitment, assurance, guarantee, use or practice that concerns it. » The question is not whether two separate agreements on the same issues can be concluded at exactly the same time. By a simultaneous agreement, a « Supersedes Previous » clause refers to any agreement that was in effect at the time the new agreement was entered (or just before the date of entry of the new agreement). Questions about the effectiveness of whole contractual clauses are increasingly being raised in litigation, particularly in disputes related to long-term contracts such as joint ventures, long-term supply contracts, long-term financing agreements or amendments and/or extensions of such agreements or agreements in which the parties have had a long period of activity. First, such a clause does not prevent the parties from relying on « extrinsic » statements or documents in the contract – that is, documents that can be used to inform the importance of the contract (although such extrinsic documents cannot be used to establish a separate contractual agreement between the parties). Conclusions A complete contractual clause is certainly a useful and very common provision of the « boiler plate, » but it is not necessarily a complete answer to exclude everything outside the written document itself. A full contractual clause is used for this purpose only if it is carefully crafted with the intention of excluding such other matters, and even in this case, it may be repealed. Parties are advised to think carefully about what they wish to exclude from their contract. In certain circumstances, there may be pre-contract exchanges, insurance or statements that a party wishes to rely on. In this case, it may be more advantageous to forego the insertion of a provision. If the clause is inserted, all pre-contract statements that that party can rely on should be included in the contract itself. I understand that a new agreement can take over from an older agreement.

All that needs to be done in this case is to determine the time when others were made, and in comparison, you may know that one of the newest, in particular, is. But I do not understand how an agreement can take over from all simultaneous agreements. Do I understand « at the same time » that I`m bad for this? Is it possible that two separate agreements would be concluded at exactly the same time? What happens if other agreements have this clause (which replaces all other agreements)? If it is possible that several agreements are concluded at exactly the same time (which I mean at exactly the same time, which I am not sure), does this not lead several agreements to take turns with each other? (a) where a written contract contains a clause stating that the document contains all contractual clauses (« merger clause, » « full contractual clause »), previous statements, commitments or agreements not included in the document are not part of the contract. A typical comprehensive contractual clause could be as follows: in the case of Mears Ltd/Shoreline Housing Partnership Ltd. a social housing owner (Shoreline) entered into an agreement whereby Mears (a maintenance contractor) would operate Shoreline`s properties. Mears began working for the owner six months before the contract was signed. Mears` labour cost calculations were based on a different price list than the signed contract formula. Subsequently, it turned out that the price list was not working and the parties agreed on a new composite code system.
