Your selected option:

Next >

Under section 5 of the Limitation Act 1980, the limitation period for breach of contract claims is six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued. Since the alleged breach occurred two and a half years ago, James is still within the limitation period and is susceptible to a claim by Michael. 


Key Point: The statutory limitation period for breach of contract cases is six years from the date the cause of action accrued, under the Limitation Act 1980.
