Collateral warranties are used as a supporting document to a primary contract where an agreement needs to be put in place with a third party outside of the primary contract. Sometimes an architect, contractor, or sub-contractor will need to warrant to a funder, tenant or purchaser that it has fulfilled its duties under a building contract.
Collateral warranties often contain obligations that affect the consultant or contractor, such as using materials of an appropriate quality, and carrying out work in a professional, workmanlike manner. It can also provide the third-party contractual rights enabling it to claim for losses which would not otherwise be recoverable.
