Contract Disputes Archives

When a first breach of contract terminates a contract

Contracts are important for businesses in Florida. Contracts state the obligations of both parties to a transaction. This is important because it gives both sides assurances about how the other side will proceed and allows them to plan accordingly. It also gives both sides the ability to later protect their rights if the other side breaches the contract. This is usually done through a lawsuit for damages the party suffered due to the breach.

Obligations when there is an anticipatory breach of contract

Businesses in Florida enter into contracts every day and by doing so they are agreeing to be bound by the terms of the contract. This means they must perform the obligations they agreed to perform. This could be either to perform certain services, provide certain products or perhaps simply pay for another company's goods or services. Another aspect of many contracts is that the parties to the contract must complete their obligations within a certain timeframe.

Contract disputes over revocation of offers

People and businesses in Florida generally conduct their businesses by offering certain goods and services in exchange for money or other consideration. At a very basic level this type of offer and acceptance creates a contract between the parties. These can be very complicated, though, so many times these contractual relationships are put into writing and signed by the parties to ensure the performance of both parties to the contract.

When is there a modification to a contract under Florida law?

People and businesses in Florida enter into a variety of different contracts each year. The types of contracts depend on the type of business, but every contract involves at least two parties each agreeing to do something or pay for something in exchange for the other party doing something. At the very basic level this is the basis of every contract, but the actions required to actually execute the terms of the contract can be very complicated. They can also take time and circumstances may change after the original contract is signed.

Potential defenses to breach of contract claims

People and businesses in Florida enter into contracts every day. People enter into contracts when they agree to pay for services or goods. These are very basic contracts in which a customer is agreeing to pay the business for a good or service. However, other contracts, especially those between businesses for large amounts of money, can be very complicated and have many different requirements each party to the contract must follow.

Interpretation of disputed terms in a contract dispute

People and businesses in Florida enter into contracts almost every day. Some contracts are simply accepting the terms for using a product or service, but many others take many hours of negotiation to ensure that the contract states exactly what the parties to the contract want it to say. The more money that is on the line, generally, the longer contract formation process may take. After the contract is signed by all parties, it becomes official, and everyone is bound by its terms.
