CSC also stated that in the absence of a new explicit agreement, a court should not find novation unless the circumstances are particularly compelling.  Unlike novation, in the event of an assignment, the original contract does not lapse and no new and separate contract is concluded. The original contract remains in force. Unlike novation, the assignment of the contract cannot require the agreement of all the contracting parties, depending on the terms of the contract. According to the contractual conditions, the assignor/seller should normally give only one notification to the non-assignor. If the assignment contract is silent, the courts have decided that the contract is generally refundable, with the exception of the personalized service contract for which consent must be obtained.  The CSS has decided that personal services contracts are contracts based on trust, skills or particular personal characteristics that implicitly limit the agreement to the original parties and the determination of a personal service contract is often taken by the courts. Assignment and takeover may be more comfortable for the seller than novation, since the seller may not have to obtain the agreement of a third party to assign its interest in a contract to the buyer, but the seller must be aware of the potential commitments if the buyer does not comply with the assigned contract. While novation may protect the seller from such future debts, the fact that the third party refuses to give consent is a more complicated process for all parties involved and may not be feasible. It is therefore important that the parties assess their relationship with the third party before proceeding with the novation.
If you find yourself in such a situation and your contract provides for the possibility of assignment, an assignment and acquisition agreement may be a good option to maintain your relationship with the party with whom you originally entered into a contract, while passing on your contractual rights and obligations to third parties. 1.
