Latin Legal Terms

Demoror

Demoror – this Latin term literally means to loiter, linger, to cause a delay. In practice, usually in the sphere of Law of Contracts, the act of loiter is prohibited when speaking of performing properly the obligations of the contract. Parties who linger and cause a delay in performance of their obligations usually get punished via paying a penalty for delay towards the other party which expected proper performance. This is exercise of the fundamental legal principle that the contracts should be obeyed and the obligations – properly performed.
