Waa maxay ogeysiiska baaqashada?
Unfortunately, it happens often enough that a contracting party fails to fulfil its obligations, or fails to do so on time or properly. A ogaysiis gaf ah gives this party another opportunity to (properly) comply within a reasonable period. After expiry of the reasonable period – mentioned in the letter – the debtor is in Default. Default is required to be able to dissolve the contract or claim damages, for example. Depending on the circumstances, default may not be required. Examples include situations where performance is permanently impossible, such as a photographer who does not appear at the wedding.
Default without notice?
In some situations, default occurs without notice of default, for example if a fatal deadline has been stipulated to fulfil obligations.
Sample letter of formal notice
You can use the sample letter below to declare your contracting party in default. However, every situation is different; you will therefore have to complete the letter yourself and are ultimately responsible for its content. Remember to send the letter by registered mail and keep all necessary evidence (copy, proof of posting, etc.).
