Important Facts About The Punishment For A Breach Of Contract

Listen
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.
