In summary, the case law warns us that even if the contract contains an explicit provision on termination for reasons of convenience, it would be difficult to assert that there is a general right of suspension by law, as the courts have consistently refused to recognize such a right. It is therefore a good idea for the parties to consider a suspension clause in their contracts. If so, they should also ensure that the contract correctly addresses the immediate practical consequences of a suspension order and the duration of the suspension of a contract before a termination can take place. What happens should also be taken into account if work is to resume after the suspension. A contract is a legal document that binds at least two parties to the other and requires them to fulfill certain obligations set out in the contract. In some cases, there may be termination of a contract that makes the contract legally unreal. Only the parties to the agreement can terminate a contract. There are also other scenarios that can occur either for your project or for your contractual relationships, and we will then check them out quickly. In each of these cases, you should check the final project checklist to see how many of them you can run. In the previous section, we looked at ways to enter into or terminate a contract, and we mentioned that entering into a contract does not always mean the end of a project. However, the end of a project almost always constrains the end of an associated contract.
As a reference, Table 22.1 lists the different ways to complete a projectTevery, some or all aspects of our final project checklist would be triggered. The force majeure provisions may provide for circumstances that might otherwise be considered events of frustration and thus lead to the termination of the contract. Force majeure (e.g. B exceptionally adverse weather conditions) is generally considered a relevant event in construction contracts, which allows for an extension of time and a right to loss and effort instead of termination. This may be in the interest of both parties. Contracts may also allow for the suspension of the service. The circumstances that allow for a suspension are generally similar to those that allow termination. For example, a suspension may be useful if the client is having difficulty raising funds to pay for the work at the speed provided for in the contract. In addition, the Housing Assistance Act gives the right to suspend the benefit in the event of non-performance of the payment declared on time. Pay attention to your wording. If a contract is terminated for reasons of convenience, it is likely to be considered contrary to the treaty if it is used solely to obtain from another party a better price for the completion of the work, even if there is no explicit limitation on the circumstances in which the provision may be used.
Contracts may allow termination for reasons of “convenience”. This can be useful, for example, if the client does not provide sufficient funding for the project. However, termination for convenience may be authorized by the other party to terminate its rights. The justification for the suspension clauses will largely resemble termination – for example, there may be a change in circumstances on the ground, making it impossible to continue the work in the short term. From time to time, the suspension can be used by one party to give it space, to think about the follow-up to be given to a project, which should be acceptable to the other party if it is kept within the borders. The duration of the contract does not always correspond to the duration of the project. There is a very close link between suspension and termination and, depending on the wording of the clause, the end result of a suspension clause may be similar to a termination clause, with each party having the right to terminate the contract at the end of the agreed suspension period. You may terminate a contract if you and the other party have entered into a prior written agreement that has been terminated for a specific reason..
