Breach of Contract Laws in Massachusetts

Contracts are vital to business, real estate transactions, and relationships in Massachusetts. Contracts are legally binding and are a form of protection and assurance for all parties. Despite the importance and reliance on contracts in Massachusetts, there are times when one party disregards or goes against the terms of a contract. When this happens, it is called breach of contract and it is taken very seriously in Massachusetts. If you are faced with a breach of contract situation, Shapiro Law Group, PC, can help.

Types of Breach of Contract

There are many ways a contract can be breached, as each contract can be as individual as the parties involved. One common breach of contract is a failure of one party to provide a service or product. Not providing the agreed upon amount or the promised quality of service can also be breach of contract. Backing out of a real estate transaction or providing false information, such as not disclosing important information about a property, can also be pursued as breach of contract.

In order to successfully pursue a breach of contract claim, it must be proven that the contract was valid. There must also be a loss or damages shown. The loss or damages can be in the form of money or lost profits. If successful, a breach of contract claim can force the party to live up to his or her obligations, or in essence, fix what they breached. It can also result in the awarding of monetary damages that compensate for the cost of the breach.
