I’ve just read that paragraph 20 of the Offer to Purchase and Contract (Form 2-T) was recently amended to make it clear that electronic notice is considered to have been delivered when it has been sent rather than when it has been received.



LEGAL Q&A | What time of day controls if notice is sent from or to a different time zone?

QUESTION: I’ve just read that paragraph 20 of the Offer to Purchase and Contract (Form 2-T) was recently amended to make it clear that electronic notice is considered to have been delivered when it has been sent rather than when it has been received. That got me wondering—suppose a notice of termination of contract is emailed from someone in a time zone that’s different from the time zone where the recipient of the email is located? If the notice is considered to have been delivered when it was sent, is it also considered to have been delivered as of the time of day in the location where the sender sent the email?
