Application concerning the termination of a contract by operation of law

The law concerning collective proceedings allows the administrator to choose between the extension and the termination of ongoing contracts. Contracts that are ongoing on the day of the opening of the procedure are terminated by rights after a formal notice remained unanswered within one month, submitted by the contractive party to the administrator.

The supervisory judge can reduce or extend the one-month time limit.

The termination occurs by full rights, but still needs to be ordered by the supervisory judge.
