How To Prevent a Breach of Contract

August 24, 2022

breach of contractA contract is a written or spoken agreement that governs a transaction or relationship between two or more parties. The terms stipulated within this agreement are meant to be adhered to by all parties involved.

Unfortunately, there are certain instances wherein one of the parties breaks these terms, putting the others at a disadvantage. In this case, the compromised parties may seek relief from the courts by proving the other party’s liability for breach of contract.

Even though this relief is available as an option, it is still better to prevent opportunities for a breach of contract from occurring, given how severe the fallout may be. For this, you should consult with a Palm Harbor business & contracts attorney to help you make your contracts as ironclad as they can be.

Preventing a Breach of Contract

Contracts should be concise and direct to the point to avoid confusion. The only real defense against a breach of contract is by expressing your terms as clearly as possible. Avoid ambiguous language that may confuse you later on.

Explicitly identify who the parties involved are and what specific roles they play in this contract. The objectives of the contract should then be outlined, followed by the specific terms agreed upon by all signatories.

Exceptions to the general rule should be clearly stipulated and addressed too. Be careful that the exceptions do not overshadow the general rule nor overshadow the original intent or objective of the contract.

Be specific when or enumerating stipulations in the contracts. Be precise as well, because whatever is not specifically mentioned can be cause for ambiguity later on.
