How Do I Know If I Have A Breach of Contract?
- Failure to perform the contract as originally devised.
- Purposely making it impossible for you to carry out your end of the contract.
- Revoking the contract.
What are the possible defenses for a breach of contract claim?
- The contract was not put into writing. This does not automatically mean that the claim is invalid. We may be able to hold the person accountable for the contract even though it was not in writing.
- Mistake(s) in the contract. Sometimes, there may be a mistake in the contract upon signing. There are ways to still enforce the contract despite any mistakes. Typically, it will boil down to whether the mistake was one-sided or not.
- Lack of capacity. This is one of the more infrequent arguments. The other party can claim that they did not hold the capacity to contract. They may have been too young or not cognitively aware of the contract or the requirements within.
- The contract is unconscionable. Another common defense is that the contract is unconscionable or overwhelmingly unfair.
