Business Law Solicitors

What is a Breach of Contract?

In simple terms, a breach of contract is where one party fails to perform their part of any agreement, whether it is an oral or a written agreement.  The terms of many contracts are contained within the conditions of sale but may not always be.  Some terms are implied terms and will apply even if an agreement is silent on these.  Common examples of implied terms are that a product is fit for purpose and is sold free from faults.

For many consumers a breach of contract will often involve the purchase of a defective product or the failure of a business to supply goods or services by a specified date.  If you are not successful in resolving your dispute informally, we can help you.

If you feel that a company has failed to deliver goods or services on time or in a satisfactory way, please contact us.
