Response time for notice between parties


If the parties in dispute are A and B.


A sends notice to B say on day 1 to return the money as a contract was breached.

B replies to A on day 10 saying that A has to pay penalties at say X% instead and money would not be returned as B thinks A failed to honor the contract. B does not specify how soon the response is to be given.

A consults a lot of people, lawyers etc and takes nearly 45 days to respond, and responds on day 55 (45 days after receiving the response from B) saying that A still disagrees, and the contract must be cancelled.

Now is there a law that says that if a response does not come back in certain number of days (in this case from A who took a long time going through all legal angles) then whatever the other party has sent is to be accepted?

Is there a default time period like 15 days or so for disputes or disagreements of property purchase?

There is no fixed period prescribed by law to answer a legal notice. However it is always proper to give reply to a legal notice as early as possible.

Adv Archana - thank you for your response.

Yes Ms Archana is right. In any case the reply to any notice is not mandatory and in certain circumstances it proves to be counter productive sepecially at the time of trial.

Generally a time limit is mentioned in the notice, but in any case the time limit should be a reasonable one which is generally  three to six months, when not mentioned.
