Letter – Notice of Force Majeure Event
In the course of a commercial contract it may sometimes be the case that a party is unable to perform their obligations due to an intervening event or circumstance beyond their reasonable control. Many contracts therefore include what is known as a Force Majeure clause – absolving a party of liability for failure to perform their obligations in such cases.
This Notice of Force Majeure Event Letter is designed for use in such situations to inform the other party of the situation. Options enable the letter to be used both in situations where the event or circumstance is already occurring and in situations where it is expected.
Further options are provided enabling the sender to provide an estimate of how long their performance is likely to be delayed. Assurances are given to the effect that the impacted party is using all reasonable endeavours to resume the normal performance of their obligations as soon as possible.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
