Resolutory clause – this term applies in the Law of Contracts. There it refers to a condition, which if performed by the parties, will avoid punishable enforcement. For example, a party which delays their payments, has a term to deposit all due sums. So in such case the contract will enter into its usual path and the creditor won’t take it to the bailiff. The term is formed from the words “resolutive”, meaning obsolete, and “clause” that mean term or condition within a contract.
The term differs than the term “resolutive clause”, which refers to terms or conditions, establishing the situations for annulment of the contract.
