The Agreement May Be Renewed

Companies should be mindful of contracting with automatic renewal clauses, as an unlawful termination of the contract for an extended period of time could result in a claim for infringement. Alternatively, the parties may enter into negotiations to amend the service contract for the remainder of the extended term. The contract is also terminated if one of the parties indicates to the other party that it intends to terminate the contractual relationship within the notice period described in the terms of the contract. [34] In general, this declaration of intent is presented some time before the expiry of the contract: “This agreement is automatically renewed for an additional (1) year, unless one of the parties announces its intention to terminate this contract at least thirty (30) days before the expiry of the contract.” or for a number of days before the expiry of the contract: “This agreement is automatically extended by one (1) year if one of the parties informs the other party of its intention to terminate the contract within thirty (30) days from the end of each period.” The Memorandum of Understanding may be issued at any time before the number of days indicated in the first case, while in the second case it must be issued within the time limit of highlighting the number of days. Ponnan JA found that, given the express terms of the agreement, there does not appear to be room for the importation of the allegedly tacit tenant clause. In fact, as has been formulated in Robin v Guarantee Life Assurance Ltd: Ponnan JA refers to several positions in other jurisdictions. A key principle of these decisions is that the courts will not enforce an agreement to approve it. One of the cases referred to by Ponnan JA is Walford v Miles, the House of Lords confirming Courtney`s accuracy against Fairbairn. Lord Ackner found that these were the transfer fees arising from an agreement between CheckVelocity and a client referred by BSG to CheckVelocity while their contract was in effect. The question was whether an agreement between CheckVelocity and the customer, signed after the expiry of the BSG/CheckVelocity contract, was an extension of the first contract (and therefore subject to royalties) or whether the second was a brand new contract that replaced the first contract.

Contracts, including car renewal clauses, may be terminated due to infringements, mutual agreement between the parties and specific circumstances. [2] Terminating a service contract for an extended period of time can be both difficult and costly. The position in our legislation is that an agreement is unenforceable, which means that landlords and tenants must therefore be careful when developing an extension clause. First, it serves as a reminder that the courts do not interfere in the conduct of an agreement and always respect the discretion of the parties to approve or not consent to it.
