What is a breach of contract?

A breach of contract is when one or more people in a binding agreement fail to honor their part of the contract. If one side does not honor their promise by non-performance, a breach occurs. A contract can be breached entirely or in part. This can occur for many reasons, including:

  • One party does not fulfill the contractual promise
  • One party interferes with the others performance
  • One party is unable to perform the contractual promise
  • One party does something against the intent of the contract
  • One party refuses to fully perform the contract

To make sure your contract is enforceable, it is always wise to have the contract in writing. If the other party did not fulfill their end of the contract, you can point it out and give them the opportunity to fix it. If they still refuse, then you should seek the advice of an attorney.
