A contract involving personal services is not assignable unless the contract states otherwise. Therefore it appears that the owner has breached the contract.

Here is why

Any right to money may be assigned even if it is the future right to money.This contrasts with a personal service contract. Personal service contracts cannot be assigned without the permission of both parties.

The contract/promissory note, states also that we are not allowed to break the contract under any circumstances.

My answers stands. You have not broken the contract but instead he has breached it by assigning it without your permission
