The principle of Limitation of Actions stops a party from starting his Civil claim after the following time-limits:
- A case involving a claim contract or a Civil wrong (also known as a Tort) must be started within 6 years from the time of the case arising (i.e. from the time of the breach of contract, from the time of the wrongful act taking place).
- A case involving negligence, nuisance or breach of duty must be started within 3 years from the time of the case arising or 3 years from the time the Plaintiff knew that he had the right to take legal action.
If you do not start your Civil case within the prescribed time-limits, you will not be allowed to start your claim and you will have no further legal rights regarding the case.
