A Breach Of Contract FAQ

Contract issues can be confounding and often leave individuals and businesses with more questions than answers. To shed light on this intricate subject, we’ve compiled a list of – and provided answers to – the most common inquiries our clients have regarding breaches of contract.

What are the types of breaches of contract?

Contract breaches come in five different forms. These are:

  • Minor breach: A minor – or partial – breach occurs when a party fulfills most of a contract’s terms but deviates from them in some small way.
  • Material breach: A material breach represents a significant failure that undermines the contract’s purpose.
  • Anticipatory breach: An anticipatory breach is where one party indicates they will not fulfill their contractual duties before the due date.
  • Bad faith: Bad faith is intentional dishonesty that deprives one party of the benefits of the contract.
  • Fundamental breach: A fundamental breach is so serious that it permits the aggrieved party to terminate the contract.

What are the possible remedies for a breach of contract in Florida?

In Florida, one of the most common remedies for a breach of contract is compensatory damages, which are designed to cover the tangible losses incurred as a result of the breach. Other potential remedies include rescission, which is the cancellation of the breached contract, and specific performance, which requires the breaching party to fulfill their contractual obligations. In rare cases, punitive damages may be awarded if fraud is involved.

Keep in mind that in Florida, a breach of contract must be material in order for the wronged party to receive damages. This sets it apart from all other states, where parties can receive damages when breaches do not meet this threshold.
