Capitalised Terms

A word or a phrase can be defined to have a specific meaning in a Contract, to prevent any misinterpretation.

By convention, such definitions are indicated by capitalising the first letter of each word used in the term, such as 'Building' or 'High Value Property'.

The definitions may be pre-defined, appearing in a specific definitions Clause, where each defined term is followed by the desired meaning of that term.

Definitions may also or instead be post-defined, appearing in the body of any particular Clause after a group of words.

An example includes 'Duties are to commence between 6am and 8am ('Start Time')'.
