Business contracts are a key component of every business and are essential in defining responsibilities and tasks to ensure that both parties are held responsible for their roles. It’s common in business that for one reason or another, one party is incapable of holding up their end of the deal, which creates a situation where they are in breach of contract.
Breach of Contract Issues:
There are three common types of breaches, each with it’s own degree of severity:
- Total and Material Breach
- Material BUT Not Total Breach
- Not Material (Substantial Performance or Partial Breach)
A breach of contract can be a very frustrating situation for a business, and they can even cause major repercussions on the business. In today’s litigious society, business contracts have become far more complex, meaning that the wording of contracts, or alteration of contracts can make a significant difference on liability and responsibilities.
1. TOTAL AND MATERIAL BREACH
A Total and Material Breach of contract allows the non-breaching party to:
- Withhold Performance;
- Terminate; and
- Claim full damages for Breach of Contract
2. MATERIAL BUT NOT TOTAL BREACH
A Material BUT not total breach of contract allows the non-breaching party to:
- Suspend Performance
- Await Cure
- Claim Compensation for any loss suffered
3. NOT MATERIAL BREACH (Substantial Performance or Partial Breach)
A non-material breach of contract allows the non-breaching party to claim compensation for any loss suffered. This is to say when a party has substantially performed, the deficiency in performance s said to be a partial breach. However, the reference to total and partial breach is also used to identify a somewhat different, but related issue: A breach is called partial when, even if it may become material in time, it is not yet important enough to so qualify, because there is possibility of cure.
GENERAL AND SPECIAL DAMAGES
1. GENERAL DAMAGES
General damages flow directly and necessarily from breach of contract. In other words, general damages are deemed to have been contemplated by the parties at the time of entering into the contract since their occurrence is deemed predicable if contract is breached.
2. SPECIAL DAMAGES
Special damages, on the other hand, do not necessarily flow from breach of contract. Special damages arise from particular circumstances of the parties or of the particular contract. To recover special damages, the special circumstances must have been communicated to or known by the defendant, or the defendant should have become aware of such special circumstances when the contract was entered into.
