The first question is to determine the appropriate time frame. The starting point is the statute of limitations. The most common time frames are: Section 7 (1) of the Alberta Limitations Act provides that the basic limitation period may be extended by mutual agreement. However, this is subject to certain requirements: in particular, a party affected by this extension must recognize and approve the extension in writing. It should be noted that the judgment in the Sujir Nayak case (supra) was delivered by the Supreme Court on 21.03.1997. Indeed, the demarcation between a right and the limitation of the statute of limitations is so thin that it is often non-existent. In the event of Parliament in its wisdom, Parliament amended Section 28 of the Contracts Act, probably to water down the severity of the aforementioned judgment, by the Indian Contract (Amendment) Act, 1996 (Law 1 of 1997), effective 01.08.1997, as recommended by the Law Commission of India in its 97th report, Section 28 amended to comment on how : , but the time to make a claim is short, and you should seek the assistance of a lawyer as soon as possible so that your advisors can review your claim and advise on the restriction. If the time required for the prosecution is very tight, then there are two common steps you can take: The limit is not the only problem for a complainant born of the passage of time. Some are simply practical: the memories of witnesses may become less clear, or at least less reliable; Documents can be transferred or destroyed. The accused may experience financial difficulties or bankruptcies and therefore cannot be worth prosecuting. However, there are two factors that can lead to extinction or have a significant influence on an application, even if the limitation period has not yet expired. One of the earliest cases concerning the interpretation of the terms of an insurance policy that limits the period of challenge to the denial of the claim, reported as The Vulcan Insurance Co Ltd v Maharaj Singh – another: (1976) 1 SCC 943.
The restrictive covenant in this case went as follows: The Latent Damage Act is, however, limited for certain construction applications. Many construction contracts limit the scope of liability to the types of liability expressly defined in the original contract – these restrictions are introduced by “exclusive remedies” or “full agreement” clauses – and do not imply liability for negligence, with the exception of negligence, which causes fatal or bodily harm, as this cannot be excluded by English law. In these cases, the Latent Damages Act does not apply. The key to making the most of the restriction is predictive thinking: dealing with it in agreement, acting quickly to manage it when claims arise, and taking into account all the effects that time can have, not just the effects of the delimitation law.
