    date falling one year

    Term: 1 year subject to renewal on the date falling one year from the date of this agreement. An automatic 12 month renewal if written termination is not given 60 days priorto the date falling one year from the date of this agreement.

    My question: The above term is contained in an agreement. Is the second sentence in the above natural?

    No it isn't. "The agreement will be automatically renewed if written notice of termination is not given 60 days prior to the end date."

    Re: date falling one year

    I'd enhance that suggestion with "The agreement will be automatically renewed for another 12-month period if..."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: date falling one year

    Bhai would use 'prior to the end date' instead of 'prior to the date falling one year from the date of this agreement;

    Could anybody give me some more suggestions of 'prior to....', please?

    Re: date falling one year

    You could speak of the "expiration date" of the original agreement. You could also declare that there will be an automatic "renewal date." (They would be the same date.)

    It is highly unnecessary to define the end of a one-year agreement as "the date falling one year from the date of this agreement." That is what a one-year agreement is.

    Thanks Dave

    Do you mean you would say "prior to the expiration date"?

    Re: date falling one year

    Yes. "...60 days prior to the expiration date."

    Thanks again, Dave.

    Can we use "60 days prior to the end date/expiration date of this agreement''?

    Re: date falling one year

    Yes. One or the other. "Expiration date" is more formal.
