Novation is the act of substituting a valid existing contract with a replacement contract, where all concerned parties mutually agree to make the switch. In most novation scenarios, one of the two initial contracting parties is replaced outright by an entirely new party, where the original party willingly agrees to forgo any rights originally afforded to them. Novations are most frequently used in corporate takeovers and the sales of businesses.
