The general position under English law is that once laytime has started to count, it will count unabated, save the exceptions expressly agreed or if there is a fault on the part of the owners or those for whom they are responsible. Here, we will focus on a few of the most common exceptions, and on what to bear in mind when negotiating exceptions to the running of laytime.
Holidays are reflections of the culture we live in, however laytime holidays are detached from cultural context. As our perception of current and historic event are biased by personal views, it should come as no surprise that holidays may be disputed – and even controversial. Having clarification on laytime exemptions may avoid disputes.
