If terms of a contract are broken, then there is a breach of contract. This can occur if one party does not comply with the terms or if they change their mind and do not perform their side of the contract.
You can remedy a breach of contract in various ways but the most common would be:
- To make a compensation claim for damages (a sum of money) for loss or damage caused by Breach of Contract
- To seek a court order, for the contract to be performed, and obligations to be carried out
- To seek a court order, declaring the contract null and void, obliging the party who has breached the contract to put the ‘innocent party’ back in the position he/she was in before the contract was entered into
If you are a business owner, we realise that seeking legal advice can be a daunting prospect, especially with the financial pressure for start ups and small businesses. However, well drafted contracts in business are valuable assets and forms of protection.
The right business contract could ensure the ability to pursue debts owed to your business, lessen the risk of misunderstandings and disputes, litigation and cashflow issues, employer and employee disputes.
