Breach of Contract
A contract is legally binding agreement or promise between two or more persons to buy, hire, rent or sell an item, product or service or to perform certain duties.
Where the terms of a contract are broken you may be able to obtain a remedy against the party in breach. The most common remedies are:
- The award of damages (compensation) to compensate you for loss or damage caused by the breach of contract.
- To seek a court order for the contract to be performed (specific performance) so that the obligations in the contract are carried out.
- To seek a court declaration regarding the contract terms
