What is a contract?
A contract is a legally binding agreement that stipulates certain obligations you have towards another party or parties. Contracts can take form in their most traditional sense—a signed document—but can also be made orally, and even by gesture, depending on the circumstances. They require three core criteria: an (1) offer, (2) consideration, or something of value in exchange for the offer, and an (3) acceptance.
When has there been a breach of contract?
A party has “breached” the agreement when that party is privy to a contract and fails to perform according to the terms agreed to. Upon finding that a contract exists, deviation from the terms can hold the breaching party liable.
What remedies are available to you?
Rescission: to nullify the contract,
Money damages: to have the breaching party pay money to the compliant party[ies],
Specific performance: to have the breaching party comply with the terms of the contract,
Reformation: to change the terms of the agreement
