Letter of Undertaking

A letter of undertaking is an assurance by one party to another party that they will fulfill the obligation that had been previously agreed on, but not written into a contract. For example, if one party wishes to complete some work for a business and get paid for it, the individual would issue a letter of undertaking to the business stating their intentions.

Tips for writing a Letter of Undertaking

-          Make sure both parties agree on all terms before you write your letter

-          Use clear language that specifically states your rights and obligations
