Time limits for bringing a small claim
Some examples of time periods which you should bear in mind when bringing a claim include,
1. If your claim is based on Contract then you must bring your action against your opponent within 6 years of the date of the breach of contract. However for certain types of contract the period can be extended to 12 years (e.g. where the contract is in the form of a Deed).
2. If your claim is based on the Negligence of your opponent then again your action must be brought within 6 years. The 6 years start to run from the date of the Negligence.
