This document is an optional clause which can be used in a business sale agreement.
Where the business being sold has provided credit via a financing contract to a third party, it is important for the vendor to provide warranties relating to those contracts. Specifically, the warranties should indicate that the contracts are enforceable and legal.
Businesses that would enter into financing contracts would be, for example, finance companies and pawn shops.
