Broken Contracts and Remedies

In the event that one party fails to fulfill its obligations under a Contract, the Contract becomes broken and there is said to be a breach of Contract. The remedies which may be open to the aggrieved party include:

  • To refuse further performance on the Contract
  • To bring an action for damages
  • To sue on the basis of quantum merit
  • To terminate the Contract in accordance with the specific provisions of the Contract.

Though the Contract Law is clear with respect to such issues, the view taken by courts could differ from one country to another.
