Types of Contracts
A contract is an agreement to do or not do a certain thing. (Civil Code Section 1549) Contracts can be written, oral, or implied based on the parties course of conduct. The fact that a written agreement was not entered into does not mean that you cannot prove you had a contract with someone.
Was A Contract Formed?
In order to prove a contract was formed, the essential elements are that the terms of the agreement were clear enough that the parties could understand what each was required to do; that the parties agreed to give each other something of value in exchange; and that the parties agreed to the terms of the contract.
Was The Contract Breached?
In order to recover damages for breach of contract, a party must prove four things: (1) the existence of an agreement; (2) the plaintiff’s performance or excuse for non-performance; (3) the defendant breached a term of the agreement; and (4) the plaintiff suffered damages.
