The law on limitation provides a period of six years in respect of breach of contract. There is no need for damages to have been caused before a claimant is able to sue in contract. The cause of action accrues on the date of the breach of contract and the six-year limitation period runs from this date.
There are several remedies available, such as damages; specific performance; injunction; rescission; rectification. However, which option is best for you will depend on your circumstances.
