A man’s word is his bond. When two parties come to an agreement it is expected that they will honor their contract and keep their word. Contracts delineate the rights and obligations between parties to a certain transaction and are essential to the smooth operation of businesses. In an ideal world, both parties maintain their end of the bargain and perform as promised.
However, in the real world, parties breach contracts. Schecter Law has defended and prosecuted breach of contract actions since 1976, and with related experience in transactional law, are well equipped to handle all aspects of contractual disputes. We fully analyze the issues that exist in your dispute and help you determine the proper course of action.
There are actually several different types of breaches of contract. Understanding what type has happened is important before pursuing legal action. For instance, a minor breach is a breach where the contract’s language has been literally breached but there is little to no difference in performance. In these types of breaches, a person can only sue for the damage they have incurred and not sue for specific performance.
A material breach is a breach that that occurs when there is a specific failure to perform. In this case, a party can sue for damages as well as for specific performance, compelling the other party to perform a specific action. In the case of material breach, a person will want to contact a South Florida luxury real estate attorney to discuss what sort of damages and what sort of specific performance can be recovered.
Two other types of breach of contract include fundamental breach and anticipatory breach. In fundamental breach, the contract has been breached in such a way that the aggrieved party can get out of it as well as sue for damages. In anticipatory breach, a party recognizes that non-performance is inevitable and therefore sues to get out of the contract as well as sue for damages. Each of these breaches are serious and likely require expertise of a Fort Lauderdale real estate lawyer.
