Private Contract Disputes

As many of you will doubtless be aware, breach of contract is all too common in both private and commercial situations. For a contract to be binding it does not necessarily have to be written. In some contract disputes agreements have not been made in writing, and are merely implied or verbal agreements. However, in the vast majority of cases, it is beneficial to both parties to have a contract in writing. This lays out exactly what is expected of all involved.

When you are facing private contract disputes, you need representation from a team with the experience and expertise to understand what positive action is needed to bring the dispute to a beneficial resolution. Over the years our specialist contract solicitors have built up extensive experience representing private individuals facing a wide range of disputes, including:
> Disputes over property ownership
> Collection of private debts
> Inheritance and probate disputes
> Building disputes
> Management and progression of insurance claims
> Landlord and Tenant Act proceedings for residential clients

Your Legal Rights

When a contract is created there are terms which are ‘fundamental’ to the contract, and those that are ‘implied’. Generally speaking, only the breach of a fundamental term will allow the innocent party to cancel the contract, whilst lesser breaches of implied terms will generally allow the guilty party to remedy the breach. One of the principles of private contract disputes is that the innocent party should be placed in the position they would have been if the breach had not occurred, which can result in compensation.

Our experienced breach of contract solicitors provide clear, honest and straightforward advice, taking the positive action you need to reach the right resolution.
