My question is; would deceit or an act of bad faith constitute a Breach of Contract?

Hi Customer,

In general. deceit or an act of bad faith would be a breach of contract - whether either occurred before or after the contract was executed. This is because deceit is a form of bad faith, and the requirement to act in good faith is implied in every contract.
