MELCHERS (Germany): Building in Times of Corona Crisis (SARS-CoV-2)

The Corona crisis is legally regarded as a so-called “force majeure”. “Force majeure” is an external event that cannot be attributed to any of the parties to a contract, but has an external impact on living conditions or the general public or an undefined number of persons and is objectively unavoidable and unforeseeable (Federal Court of Justice, judgement of 22 April 2004 – III ZR 108/03, IBRRS 2004, 1107). However, the classification of the Corona crisis and the reference to it does not automatically solve the problems arising in this context. Thus, even slight fault can exclude force majeure (Federal Court of Justice NJW 1997, 3018 (3019)). MORE.
