What is a Breach of Contract
Simply put, a breach of contract occurs when one party fails to perform their obligations under a contract. Often this is when a contractor fails to provide services or the owner fails to pay for the services. However, there are many instances when it is not that simple. Additionally, there are rules that must be followed even if the other party to a contract has failed to perform. In other words, there are times when you cannot simply walk away from a contract, even if the other party has not done what they were contractually obligated to do. If you are involved in a dispute of this kind speak with one of our professionals today and see how you should proceed.
Things to Consider

Likewise, even if you have reason to believe that the other party won't fulfill future obligations (such as payment), there are certain steps you must take to avoid being the party who is liable for breaching the contract.
