Hey I was reading a International Commercial Sale of Goods Contract and I saw this provision:
- Effects of avoidance in general
12.1 Avoidance of this contract releases both parties from their obligation to effect and to receive future performance, subject to any damages that may be due.
12.2 Avoidance of this contract does not preclude a claim for damages for non-performance.
12.3 Avoidance of this contract does not affect any provision in this contract for the settlement of disputes or any other term of this contract that is to operate even after avoidance."
Why did the contract writer use avoidance here instead of an easier term "Cancellation" ?
