Breach of Real Estate Contracts: Navigating Commercial and Residential Disputes in Miami

In the dynamic real estate market of Miami, the complexity of transactions can sometimes lead to disputes, particularly when a breach of contract occurs. Whether in commercial or residential dealings, the consequences of such breaches can be significant. At the Law Offices of Aaron Resnick, P.A., we specialize in representing clients facing these challenges, ensuring that their interests are vigorously defended and that they receive the reparations they deserve.

Understanding Breach of Real Estate Contracts

A breach of contract in real estate occurs when one party fails to fulfill their contractual obligations, whether it's a failure to close on a property as agreed, not meeting the terms within the contract, or any action that contradicts the contract's stipulations.

Types of Breaches:

Material Breach: This significantly affects the contract's value, often releasing the non-breaching party from their obligations.

Partial Breach: A less severe breach, does not usually release the aggrieved party from the contract but may warrant financial damages.

Common Causes in Commercial and Residential Settings:

Failure to Disclose: Issues arise when sellers fail to disclose defects or legal encumbrances.

Non-Completion: Parties fail to complete agreed-upon terms such as renovations or payments.

Escrow Disputes: Disagreements over escrow funds can lead to breaches if improperly handled.

Legal Recourses for Breach of Contract

When faced with a breach, several legal remedies are available:

  1. Damages: Monetary compensation is the most common form of redress for breach of contract. This can cover direct losses and, in some cases, additional punitive damages.

  2. Specific Performance: Particularly relevant in real estate transactions where monetary damages are insufficient due to the property's unique value, courts can order the breaching party to fulfill their contractual obligations.

  3. Contract Rescission: This returns all parties to their pre-contract status, effectively canceling the agreement.

  4. Reformation: The contract is rewritten to more accurately reflect what the parties intended, correcting any discrepancies or ambiguities that may have led to the breach.
