Ζητήματα από την εφαρμογή της ρήτρας off-hire στα ναυλοσύμφωνα.
Issues from the application of the off-hire clause in charterparties.
This Master's Thesis deals with the right given to the charterer to suspend ongoing obligation to pay hire for the reasons and under the conditions set out explicitly in time charters, by using the off-hire clause.
The objective of this study is to highlight some of the major nancent legal and factual issues in the implementation of this clause and not an exhaustive analysis of its content.
Moreover, despite the fact that this clause stems from the English contract law, the various individual issues are discussed not only under English law, but also under Greek law.
Thus, in the first section we will deal with a) the question below under what circumstances considered to prevent the complete disposal of the ship to the charterer, and should the different terminology used in the various standard time charters will affect our response, b) the question of what causes or events may trigger the off-hire clause and c) the question under what criterion is considered to have lost time from the total dutration of the the charterparty.
Finally, in the second section, we will explore whether and how other charter's rights could be affected. Particular mention is made of the withdrawal rights, compensation and termination of the charterparty.
