Defining Breach of Contract?

- Failure to deliver all promised goods or services
- Substituting goods or services that are lower in quality
- Failure to provide a bond when it is required
- Not completing something without a good reason
Breach of Warranty
Breach of warranty concerns a promise to a buyer broken by a seller or manufacturer, involving the condition, content, quality or title of a product sold. Breach of warranty refers to a broken promise or agreement, whether it is implied or express. Both kinds of breaches can be the basis for a lawsuit. An express warranty is refers to the words or actions of the seller an implied warranty is based upon the circumstances of the sale.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Fiduciary duty is a legal obligation to act solely in the interest of another person. Those who owe this obligation are called fiduciaries. Those to whom the fiduciary is obligated are called the principals.
Fiduciaries are not allowed to profit in any way from their relationship with the principal without the express informed consent of the principal. Fiduciaries also are obligated to avoid any conflict of interest with the principal or between the various clients of the fiduciary.
Examples of fiduciary duties are lawyers' commitment to their clients, financial planners' duties to their commitment to their clients, or the executor of an estate's duties to comply with the wishes of the person who created the estate documents.
