Contractual Limitations Law and Legal Definition

Contractual limitations refer to limitations set by contracts.

The following is an example of a state law on contractual limitations:

Contractual limitations period operate distinct and apart from the statutory limitations period set by the state legislature. A reviewing court must first determine whether plaintiff's suit complies with actual statutes of limitations, and, if so, and then determine the policy. The fact that a policy contains a contractual limitations period does not mean that the statutes of limitations fall by the wayside. [Monaco v. Liberty Life Assur. Co., 2008 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 30934, 8-9 (D. Cal. 2008)].
