Unexpected Breach of Contracts

September 23, 2022

Breach of ContractsAn unexpected breach of contract can happen for various reasons, not the least of which include missed deadlines, unforeseen complications, bad operational assumptions, new external problems like surprise regulations or lawsuits, or plain bad performance on the part of one or more of the contractors.

However, what makes the difference in minor issues versus big ones comes down to whether the unexpected breach is material, i.e., the contract cannot continue to go forward or be completed as a result. The Law Office of Robert Eckard & Associates P.A. or similar is needed to help with recovery.

Breach of Contract

A common example of a breach agreement is the delivery of goods or services at a location. Let us assume a contract has the delivery set for a specific date for a wedding, and the contractor is expected to provide both food and catering services. At the very last minute, before the wedding starts, the contractor calls the party and tells them the van broke down, the food spoiled, and they will not show up.

This is a classic material breach. It was not expected, the contract could not be completed any other way, the hiring party is damaged by a bad wedding experience and loss of money paid.

On the other hand, with the same example, the contractor loses the food but provides a substitute with takeout food, provides the service, arrives on time, and caters for the event. The food was not exact, but the contract was fundamentally performed. So, technically, it could be argued there was not a material breach.
