The Limitation Act 1980

The Limitation Act 1980 sets out strict statutory deadlines within which you must bring litigation claims. If you fail to take legal action or defend a claim on time your legal rights may become time-barred. Therefore, it is imperative that you seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity.

What is a limitation period?

The law sets out deadlines for bringing legal claims, which are referred to as limitation periods. The purpose of limitation periods is to prevent legal claims from being brought too long after the cause of action accrued. The length of the limitation period varies with different types of legal claim. By way of example the limitation period for a breach of contract claim is 6 years from the date the action accrued (section 5 of the Limitation Act 1980). The limitation period for enforcing judgments is 6 years from the point the judgment became enforceable (section 24 of the Limitation Act 1980). The limitation period for a professional negligence claim if based on contract, is 6 years from the breach of the contract (section 5 of the Limitation Act 1980) or if based on tort of negligence 6 years from the date the individual suffered a financial loss owing to the professional negligence (section 2 of the Limitation Act 1980).

Can a limitation period be extended?

It is possible to extend limitation periods in certain circumstances. For example:
Date of Knowledge; In respect of negligence claims section 14 of the Limitation Act 1980 provides for two alternative start dates for a negligence claim. It can be 6 years from the date from when the damage occurs or alternatively 3 years from the earliest date the Claimant had the knowledge required for bringing the claim and the right to bring the claim.
Fraud; Section 32(1)(c) provides for the limitation period to be extended where the action being brought “is based upon the fraud of the Defendant”. In which case the period of limitation will only begin once the Claimant has discovered the fraud or could with reasonable diligence have discovered it.
Mistake; Section 32(1)(c) provides for the limitation period to be extended where the action being brought “is for relief from the consequences of a mistake”. In this case the period of limitation will begin once the Claimant has discovered the mistake (as the case may be) or could with reasonable diligence have discovered it.
Deliberate concealment; Section 32 of the Limitation Act 1980 states that “any fact relevant to the plaintiff’s right of action has been deliberately concealed from him by the Defendant” the 6 year period for bringing a claim will start when from when the Claimant has discovered the concealment, or could have done so with reasonable diligence. The term “deliberate” means that the fact has been concealed by a positive act of concealment or omission or withholding of relevant information. This means that the Defendant would have known that he/she acted in breach of duty.
