(1) Where a contract infringes a mandatory rule, whether of national, international or supranational origin, applicable under Article 1.4 of these Principles, the effects of that infringement upon the contract are the effects, if any, expressly prescribed by that mandatory rule.
(2) Where the mandatory rule does not expressly prescribe the effects of an infringement upon a contract, the parties have the right to exercise such remedies under the contract as in the circumstances are reasonable.
(3) In determining what is reasonable regard is to be had in particular to:
(a)the purpose of the rule which has been infringed;
(b)the category of persons for whose protection the rule exists;
(c)any sanction that may be imposed under the rule infringed;
(d)the seriousness of the infringement;
(e)whether one or both parties knew or ought to have known of the infringement;
(f)whether the performance of the contract necessitates the infringement; and
(g)the parties’ reasonable expectations.
