Understanding Breach of Contract 

The most common types of contract disputes brought to court involve a direct breach of contract.

A "breach of contract" is when one party fails in fulfilling the promises laid out in an agreement. A breach can also occur if one party threatens or suggests they may fail to deliver on a contracted promise, or if there has been interference with a party in successfully fulfilling their duties.

A breach of contact can occur when a party bound to uphold a contracted agreement:

  • Fails to deliver services or goods
  • Fails to complete a job
  • Fails to pay within the specified time frame
  • Provides substandard goods or services

These issues can happen in a variety of ways, depending on the situation and terms of the contract.

The four main forms of a breach of contract include:

  • Actual 
  • Anticipatory - One party announces their intention to not fulfill their agreement
  • Material - A party ends up with a different result or product than what was specified in the contract
  • Minor / Partial - A party fails to perform a part of the agreement, even though the requested product or service was ultimately delivered

Both written and oral contracts can be subject to a breach of contract. One party may claim that they were under no contract to the other because there is nothing in writing, but oral contracts are still considered with the same legality as written contracts.

Litigating a Breach of Contract Case in Florida

When a contract is breached, the affected party can often pursue a remedy through litigation. Once one party has identified where a breach occurred, they must be able to prove certain elements to the courts to support their case.

In the state of Florida, you must prove the following elements for your breach of contract case:

  • A valid contract exists
  • A material breach occurred or will occur
  • Damages were incurred as a result

It is highly recommended to have an attorney write a Before Action breach of contract letter before starting litigation. This letter should include details of the breach of contract, the litigator's claim, and details on the additional legal action that will be taken if the breaching party does not remedy the breach.
