Important Facts About The Punishment For A Breach Of Contract

The punishment for breach of contract may vary based on the laws
in each jurisdiction, as well as the type of contract involved. For
example, a contract such as a lease which is breached can include financial
penalties and possible eviction of the tenant.


Leases that are involved in a breach of contract can include
penalties for both the landlord and the tenant. If the landlord breaches the
contract, the tenant may not be required to pay rent in certain circumstances
until the contract is being honored. For example, tenants may not have to pay
rent if there is no heat or air conditioning when the temperature reaches a
certain level because the landlord has breached the contract.


In contrast, tenants may be evicted if they are guilty of a breach
of contract and fail to pay the rent on time.
