Cases are acquired or lost, depending on the court`s interpretation of the terms of the contract. There are many rules and rules for interpreting the treaty. The interpretation of the contract is important for construction disputes. The interpretation of the contract is when a court determines the meaning of the terms of the contract.3 minutes read the absence of words: the absence of certain words in the contract should be taken into account when interpreting the contract. This doctrine of treaty interpretation is called Expressio Unius Est Exclusio Alterius. The translation of this Latin is ”The inclusion of one is the exclusion of the other.” The courts assume that if there was not a list of items and an item, then it should not be included. This rule applies when services are included in construction contracts. Imprecise meaning: many words have fairly broad meanings and are not limited to specific facts. Others have important nuances that vary depending on the context in which they are used. A court can quite make a decision to give the impression that it is the meaning of a term and reach a clear conclusion, without always describing the argument that led to that conclusion. For example, in a flight contract case, the court preferred the definition of ”summer” used by the International Air Transport Association, when there was no evidence that they were widely accepted for such contracts. When there is a dispute over what a contract means, there are no easy answers. A detailed analysis of the overall contract is required.
In many cases, this is likely to resolve inconsistencies or ambiguities. However, if this is not the case, further consideration of the contractual documents and the intent of the parties is required.

If this is unavoidable, seeking legal advice should be a priority.
