What Is a Contract?

A contract is a legally enforceable agreement between two parties. Each party to a contract makes a promise to either perform a duty or pay for a service or product. If one party fails to act as promised, and the other party has fulfilled the duties under the contract, the other party is entitled to legal relief.

Oral vs. Written Contracts

Generally, both written and oral contracts are legally enforceable. It is always best to write down the terms of the contract in case there is some dispute between the parties after the contract is formed. If the contract is oral, the parties to the contract may later remember different details about the contract terms, or forget certain terms entirely. Oral contracts can be difficult to enforce and often lead to contract law problems.

What is a Breach of Contract?

A breach of contract is a failure to fulfill the duties under the contract terms. A contract can be breached in the following ways:

  • One party does not perform as promised
  • One party does something that makes it impossible for the other party to perform the duties under the contract
  • One party makes it clear that he or she does not intend to perform the contract duties
