Are there exceptions to the general rule?

As stated above, in certain cases, one can apply for an extension. However, as a slightly separate issue, there are two classes of disability – namely infancy and unsound mind. In the case of a minor, Limitation will generally only run as from the age of 18 years of age, and is therefore deferred. If a person is incapable of managing and administering his property and affairs, he is regarded as not being of sound mind for this purpose. In these two cases, Limitation does not in certain circumstances run.
