It is usual for parties to have a contract to determine whether they will permit each other to assign their respective rights or transfer their respective obligations to third parties; in the absence of any specific provision in the contract, the usual rule is that whilst it may be permissible for a party to assign its rights under a contract, it is not permissible for that party to transfer its obligations under a contract to a third party without the consent of the other members of the agreement.
This free guidance document gives information on this process and is useful to contractors in the construction industry.
