This question is in regards XXXXX XXXXX 10
I believe it is talking about complete performance, substantial performace, etc.
That is what I was thinking.
Performance can be accomplished by tender-which is an unconditional offer to perform by a person who is ready, willing and able to do so. Therefore, a seller wh places goods at the disposal of a buyer has tendered delivery and can demand payment according to the terms of the agreement. A buyer who offers to pay for goods has tendered payment and can demand delivery of the goods.
Once performance has been tendered, the party making the tender has done everything possible to carry out the terms of the contract. If the other party then refuses to perform, the party making the tender can consider the duty discharged and sue for breach of contract.
Performance can also be completed by both parties fullfill their respective roles/dutes by performing the acts they promised to do.
that I understand, awesome
Normally, conditions expressly stated in the contract must fully occur in all aspects for complete perforamnce of the contract to occur.
what about by agreement or by operation of law
Any deivations breaches the contract and discharges the other party's obligations to peform. If a party fails to "completely" fill their roles, the question becomes whether the party has "substantially performed" under the contract.
To qualify for substantial performance the performance must not vary greatly from the performance posmised in the contract and it must create substantially the same benefits as those promised in the contract. If it is substantial, the other party must live up to their end up of the bargain or they are in breach.
Those are ways a contract can be discharged.
The only other thing that I would suggest is that you discuss the differences between a condition precedent, condition subsequent and a condition concurrent.
However, "by performance" you should discuss the differences between complete and substantial.
Ok, thank you so very much.
