    word order

    Hi,

    could you please tell me which of these is correct (or better)?

    1) The parties agree that the day of completion of the contracted items is deemed to be the day of signing the certificate of handover and acceptance.

    2) The parties agree that the day of signing the certificate of handover and acceptence is deemed to be the day of completion of the contracted items.

    Thanks a lot!

    I would say #2 is the best one. Why? Because the signing of the certificate must happen first before the rest can happen.
