French term or phrase: demeuré sans effet pendant la présente clause
Hi there,

I'm translating part of a lease agreement and there's a confusing expression I can't seem to be able to find an equivalent translation for. Please find the context below:

"...déclaration par ledit Preneur de son intention d’user du bénéfice de la présente clause et
demeuré sans effet pendant la présente clause."

The bit that troubles me is "demeuré sans effet pendant la présent clause". I understand that "demeuré sans effet" means that it remains ineffective or unimplemented, but what does "pendant la présente clause" mean?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you in advance.

neutral  AllegroTrans: but how does this fit into what appears to be flawed text? Could you suggest a translation for the whole paragraph which would actually make sense?
