What is a Breach of Contract Notice?

A Breach of Contract Notice lets someone know that they're not upholding their end of the bargain. Sometimes you need to explain in detail how they're not fulfilling their side of the deal; in fact, the contract might even require you to notify them with a breach of contract letter. A Breach of Contract Notice can help you get things squared away and back within the boundaries of the contract agreement. 
Someone typically doesn't enter into a contract with the intent to breach; unfortunately, you might need a Breach of Contract Notice if those carefully laid plans don't work out. Contracts are just a collection of "musts," and one of your musts just might be notifying the other party when they're not performing. This is a start to getting things fixed, and sometimes it's enough to get everything back on track. If it's not, providing notice of a breach can be an important first step in protecting your legal rights moving forward. 
It's important that you specifically state how obligations aren't being fulfilled. Is someone under contract not completing projects on time? Are they not making required meetings or payments? Whether you'd like to cancel the contract entirely or would still prefer the other party to come through on their end, it's important to be detailed and accurate. A Breach of Contract Notice can help you make sure all your bases are covered.

When to use a Breach of Contract Notice:

  • You're in a contract with someone who is not performing a specified term in the agreement.
  • You manage a company that regularly deals with contracts.
