2 TABLE OF LIMITATION DATES APPLICABLE IN VICTORIA 2 (CURRENT AS AT MARCH 2008) PLEASE NOTE: This table does not constitute legal advice and has been prepared as a guide only. It is a table of the relevant provisions from the relevant legislation. It is non-exhaustive and not comprehensive and does not cover relevant case law. Advising clients on time limits is absolutely crucial. Failure to properly advise clients of limitation dates may give rise to liability in negligence. This table is not an exhaustive list of all relevant limitation periods (nor those provisions that may be used in order to seek an extension of a particular limitation period) in the State of Victoria. If in doubt as to the limitation period for a particular cause of action, consult the of Actions Act 1958 (Vic) and/or any relevant governing legislation and case law. The time when a particular cause of action "accrues" will often impact on the date on which a limitation period concludes. Exactly when a cause of action accrues however, will differ in relation to each and every claim. For example, for breach of contract, the cause of action generally accrues from the date on which the breach occurs and for actions in tort, the cause of action generally accrues from the date on which the loss is suffered. If in doubt as to when a cause of action accrues, guidance should be sought from any relevant case law and/or legislation governing the particular claim. PLEASE ENSURE: All clients are advised of any relevant time limits. The advice given in relation to time limits is recorded in file notes and the CLSIS statistics sheet. 2 Published by Advocacy & Rights Centre Ltd, 29 Queen Street, Bendigo, Victoria.
