Facing a Breach of Contract Dispute? Call (646) 760-6493 for a Consult!

"Breaching" a contract by failing to comply with the guidelines stated therein can wreak havoc on the well-being of the affected party. When one or more parties are at fault for a breach of contract, the faith placed in them by the victimized party is shattered. Also, if the victim fails to properly fight for their rights, they may be forced to comply with things that they did not originally agree to when they signed the contract, which could further damage their lives and relationships with all other parties.

Three Types of Contract Breaches You Should Know About:

Material Breach – A material breach is committed when, in short, a party strays so far from the heart of the contract that the contract is rendered “irreparably broken” and may as well have not been written in the first place. Also referred to as "total breaches," these breaches go to the very root of the agreement and are noticeable enough to cause actual monetary damages or undue hardship.

Fundamental Breach – A fundamental breach allows the party affected by the breach can not only collect damages, but also void the contract if they so desire. In order for a fundamental breach to exist, the following elements must exist:

  1. Validity: Only valid contracts can be breached, meaning that they must have a clear offer, acceptance, and a mention of “consideration,” or what each party will give in exchange for the other’s goods and services.
  2. Breach: The breach must be noticeable and cause significant harm.
  3. Damages: The harm caused by the breach must be actual and provable, such as financial losses, a damaged reputation, or a loss of a partnership.

Anticipatory Breach - An anticipatory breach occurs when one party realizes that another party is going to fail in fulfilling their end of the contract in the future. Therefore, the anticipant party can sue for damages and/or terminate the contract before the breach even occurs. Common types of anticipatory breaches include explicit refusals from one party to perform their duties, the introduction of an unforeseen circumstances which make it impossible for a party to fulfill the contract, or selling or transferring property to a third party other than the contracted buyer in the context of real estate transactions.
