CONTRACT LAW

Overview

The main remedies for breach of contract are:

• Termination
• An award of unliquidated damages
• A claim in debt
• An award of agreed damages
• Specific Performance or mandatory injunction
• Prohibitory injunction

Other remedies for breach of contract include:

• Rejection
• Nominal Damages
• Account of Profits

In this part we are focusing on remedies which are available following a breach of contract. One party to a contract may obtain a remedy following an event other than a breach of contract. Some examples are:

• Damages under the Misrepresentation Act 1967 or at common law for misrepresentation
• Rescission for misrepresentation, duress or undue influence
• An award of a just sum under the Law Reform (Frustrated Contracts) Act 1943, 1(2) or 1(3).
