A breach of contract refers to when any party privy to an agreement or contract whether oral or written fails to perform according to the terms of the contract. There are many ways to be in breach of contract but many times it refers, to failure to supply goods, failure to pay contractors, providing inferior services and products. There is a standard that is agreed upon and it must be maintained. In simple terms a breach of contract is a broken promise to do something. In legal terms it is ‘an unjustifiable failure to perform terms of a contract’. In a different definition it is explained as ‘the violation of contract through failure to perform, or through interference with the performance of the contractual obligations’.
