Breach of contract

We enter into contracts frequently in our day-to-day lives, and disputes over contracts are not reserved only for businesses and corporations. You may enter into a contract whether as a business or an individual.

For example, you may have a contract with your phone company, your landlord, your insurance company or your employer. Also, contracts don’t only arise when they are written and signed; contracts may be informal and verbal, depending on the type of contract.

Disputes over contracts often arise when either you or the other party to the contract breaches a term of the contract, or there is disagreement over the terms of the contract, or one of you wants to get out of the contract early.

In this section we have set out some of the major issues to do with contract disputes, including:

  • Breach of contracts
  • Unfair contracts
  • Uncertain contracts
  • Void contracts
  • Contracts protected by consumer legislation
  • Termination
