In Federal Commerce and Navigation vs. Molena Alpha (1979), the shipowner wrongly considered that he was entitled to reject the contract. That was not the case. The refusal was illegitimate and, therefore, the other party (now innocent, for legal reasons) could treat the contract as fulfilled. This is because the owner himself was in a repulsive offense. A contract is a legal document that binds at least two parties to the other and requires them to fulfill certain obligations set out in the contract. In some cases, there may be termination of a contract that makes the contract legally unreal. Only the parties to the agreement can terminate a contract. Both parties can agree to the termination of a contract. If this is the case, the mutual obligations to perform the contractual obligations shall cease.

Lee has entered into a contract with Rekall Ltd for June 30 to develop new software. Rekall Ltd needs the software at that time, since it has promised customers that the software will go on sale from July 1. If Lee does not develop the software by June 30, this is a violation of an essential deadline. For Rekall Ltd, it is important that the software is ready on time.

Effie enters into a contract with Rekall Ltd for the one-time supply of catalogues to Rekall Ltd`s customers in the amount of $1000. The contract ends when Effie delivers the catalogues and Rekall Ltd Effie pays for the work. It is an offence when one of the parties with whom written or oral consent is given and who is a party to the contract does not deliberately fulfil the end of his contract. An offence may be made either by the fact that none of the conditions is met, or because only one part-time work has been carried out. There are therefore different classifications of offences: each of the parties has fulfilled its obligations with „perfect precision“: exactly as stipulated in the treaty.

Typically, a contract requires one or more parties to do something called performance. For example, a company may hire and sign a contract to let a public speaker speak at a corporate event. As soon as the public speaker fulfils his obligations under the Treaty, we speak of performance. If, for one reason or another, it is impossible for the public speaker to fulfill his duties, this is described as an impossibility of representation or sometimes a „frustration“. Contract law has an eye on real-world events when it comes to terminating contracts. Termination of contract is when one of the parties who has voluntarily entered into a contract or transaction with the other party terminates the written agreement for various reasons….
