But there may be circumstances that require the release from the agreement. In such conditions, the mutual release agreement is effective and saves from any further legislation. It is a legal document that gives the right to both the parties for releasing form a contract and resolving the issues quickly in a professional way. This agreement gives consent to both the entities of the agreement to settle down any dispute and to reach at an agreeable point to withdraw from all claims and responsibilities.
Signing the mutual release agreement means, that the entity is giving up the right for pursuing any claims in future against each other. It is a quite safe and time-saving method to withdraw from a contract instead of following an extensive lawsuit. Mutual release and terminating the agreement, mutual release and settlement agreement and partnership release agreement are few other names of the mutual release agreement.
