With respect to the acquisition of assets and assuming that the contracts of the objective are assets transferred to the buyer, the transfer of contracts generally requires that the parties to the transaction go through the novation process or the assignment of the contract from the seller to the buyer. Do you need a certificate of novation? The answer is usually no, because an agreement is correct. Be especially careful when ordering if your obligations can only be fulfilled personally. The sale of a hair salon would be a good example. Not to mention the risk that the customer would “leave”, the appointment dates could be interpreted as contracts with the seller, while he would not have the opportunity to honor them because he sold the transaction. When a contract is novice, the other (initial) party must be kept in the same position as before the novation. Novation therefore requires the agreement of all three parties. While it is easy to obtain the consent of both the infringer and the acquirer, it may be more difficult to obtain the agreement of the other party of origin: the only way to transfer your rights or obligations is an agreement signed by all three parties. But what if you are a service provider (for example.
B an ISP) who sells your business with 10,000 customers? They can hardly get each of them to register for their own separate novation. In practice, a well-crafted original agreement contains a provision allowing the ISP to assign its contract without the customer`s permission. But what if not? The use of assignment as a possibility of taking over security requires special attention, as follows: Note that in some agreements where there is a prohibition on assignment, it is sometimes possible to find the reserve of certain rights to create a trust or create a guarantee on the object of the contract. 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, aptitude or particular personal characteristics that implicitly limit the agreement to the original parties and the determination of the character of a personal service contract is often taken by the courts. . . .
