Breach of Contract Statute of Limitations Might Drop

Ohio House Bill 251 would shorten the statute of limitations for actions upon a contract, and it recently had a second Hearing in the Senate after passing in the House.  Ohio’s statute of limitations for breach of written contracts was significantly reduced from 15 years to 8 years in 2012 – not that long ago, when it comes to legislative action.  House Bill 251 would further reduce to 6 years the statute of limitations for breach of written contracts.  To review the latest version of House Bill 251, click here.
