Czech term or phrase: mezery ve smlouvě
Na místo neplatného nebo neprovedi‐telného ustanovení se musí sjednat takové platné a proveditelné ustanovení, které se co možná nejvíce přibližuje zamýšlenému účelu neplatného nebo neproveditelného ustanovení.

To samé platí analogicky pro případné mezery ve smlouvě.

contract loopholes

"Loopholes are gaps or ambiguous terms in a contract that allow one of the parties to escape its duties, get out of the contract or not act in accordance with what was intended when the contract was signed."

Incidentally, my favourite word for this is “lacuna”, but I doubt many of the target audience would know what it means, so it might be best avoided.
“Now a lacuna is a gap or an empty space in the law.”
