    I'm sitting looking at a JCT contract here with the following guidelines on a clause:

    Execution under hand or as a deed:
    37. The primary factor governing the decision to execute the Contract under hand or as a deed is whether the limitation
    period for instituting proceedings in contract is to be 6 years, as in the case of execution under hand, or 12 years, where the Contract is executed as a deed. The mode of execution of the Contract will also determine the mode of
    execution of collateral warranties (clause 7·4) and the limitation period that applies to them.
    Am I right in saying this is referring to the limitation period for non-performance of the contract?

    I'm not from a legal background, i'm an architect/project manager.
