Time limits

285.Paragraph 8 A claim for indemnity will be barred by lapse of time. Paragraph 8 states that for the purposes of the Limitation Act 1980, the liability to pay indemnity is a simple contract debt. The claim will therefore be barred six years after the cause of action arose. The cause of action arises at the time when the claimant knew, or but for his or her own default might have known, of the existence of his or her claim.
