2 The act of making a change or provision for someone or something.

Webster's New World Law Dictionary. . 2000.

accommodation
n.
   1) a favor done without compensation (pay or consideration), such as a signature guaranteeing payment of a debt, sometimes called an accommodation endorsement. Such accommodation is not the smartest business practice, since the holder of the note can go after the accommodator rather than the debtor and will do so if the accommodator has lots of money or is easier to locate than the debtor.
   2) giving in to an adversary on a point to make a deal work.
   See also: guarantor
