Document Overview

Force Majeure generally refers to a provision commonly included in contracts which exempts parties from fulfilling their contractual obligations due to circumstances beyond their control, such as natural disasters (like floods, earthquakes, or fires), wars, terrorist attacks, pandemics, or government regulations. It is often referred to as an "act of God" clause.

Before sending this notice, you should make sure you understand the nature of any force majeure provisions in your contract. This notice provides you with the options to no longer perform your obligations under the contract (effectively ending the contract) or to suggfest alternative means of performance.

It also caters for a situation where there is no force majeure provision. In the event of an "act of God", there may be a situation where the performance of the contract is rendered impossible, meaning that it is legally "frustrated". Under this situation, the party is no longer required to perform their obligations under the contract. We recommend that you speak to a lawyer before claiming that your contract has been frustrated.
