What Constitutes a Breach of Contract?

If a judge has to consider a breach of contract case, they will mull over a series of questions. The first one would appear to be quite simplistic, but in some instances, this facet is more complicated than it may appear to be on the surface.

There are certain conditions that must be met in order for a contract to be enforceable, so the court will determine if there is in fact a legally binding contract in place.

Once the court has determined that there is a contract, the precise terms of the contract will be thoroughly reviewed. The court would endeavor to find out exactly what was expected of each party. They would look for any modifications that may have been added, and they would find out when the alleged breach of contract occurred.

They would ask if the breach was material to the contract, and they would query the breaching party with regard to the defense that they are presenting. Finally, they would examine the extent of the damages that were allegedly incurred through the breach of contract.

There are material breaches, and minor breaches. A breach is material if one party does not uphold some stipulations in the contract and the service or product that is described is not delivered. For example, if you enter into a contract with an author to write your biography, and he does not deliver the goods on the agreed-upon date, it can be a material breach.

Getting back to our example, if the author delivers a well written biography a week late, it could be a minor breach. An exception to this would be a case where the exact date of delivery was essential to the overall value of the service. For instance, using this scenario, if the exact date of book completion was extremely important for some concrete reason, it could a major breach.
