Sometimes the Last Day Doesn’t Count for Conditions

December 10, 2017 - Updated: December 10, 2017

Sometimes the Last Day Doesn’t Count for Conditions
 

While it may sound to be a rather simple task, “counting” has some rules.
 

Sometimes, the last day doesn’t count.
 

Complete this in 5 days                    5 days

You have 5 days to do this               5 days

Not later than 5 days                        5 days

Within 5 days                                   4 days

 

There’s a rule associated with counting and it’s set out in the Interpretation Act
 

           Within a time
 

 Where anything is to be done within a time after, from, of or before a specified day, the time does not include that day.
 

So, you have to be aware of the fact, that even though it said 5 days, it means 4 days.
 

This is very important for many Conditions contained in Agreements. You must be able to interpret the wording correctly.

 

* only those who can run the 100 meters within 10 seconds will advance to the next round.
