Contract extension

An extension that lengthens a contract by a certain duration of time. There should be a clear provision in the contract to extend the contract under certain circumstances, and a modification agreement should be executed by both parties and incorporated into the contract when a contract extension is granted. Legally one cannot extend a contract that has expired.
