Breach of Contract
A breach of contract means that the business or the customer failed to meet the terms of a written or oral contract that was agreed on beforehand, and cannot provide a viable excuse for breaching the contract. One reason for this is not being specific in the contract about the conditions of the agreement or using the wrong kind of vocabulary.
