NEW JERSEY TERMITE INSPECTOR LAWSUIT FAQs


WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY TERMITE INSPECTOR LAWSUIT?
A New Jersey termite inspector lawsuit is usually a civil lawsuit between a New Jersey termite inspector and a homeowner about a New Jersey termite inspector breach of contract related to the performance of services at a home.  A New Jersey termite inspector breach of warranty lawsuit involves warranties that the contractor provided to homeowners with the services performed at the home or materials installed at the home.   A New Jersey termite inspector breach of contract or a New Jersey termite inspector breach of warranty may cause a homeowner expensive costs to repair the damage to their home.  For most people a home is their biggest single investment of a lifetime.  Since so much is at stake in a New Jersey termite inspector lawsuit and since proving these cases can be challenging, hire an experienced New Jersey termite inspector lawsuit attorney to help you with your case.


HOW DOES HOMEOWNER PROVE A NEW JERSEY TERMITE INSPECTOR BREACH OF CONTRACT LAWSUIT?
To establish a New Jersey termite inspector breach of contract lawsuit, the Homeowner must prove that:
1. The Homeowner and New Jersey termite inspector entered into a Contract containing certain terms – a valid Contract.  
2. The Homeowner did what the Contract required the Homeowner to do.  
3. The New Jersey termite inspector did not do what the Contract required the New Jersey termite inspector to do.  This failure is called a Contract.  
4. The New Jersey termite inspector’s breach, or failure to do what the Contract required, caused a loss to the Homeowner.  


Failure to perform a Contract in accordance with its terms constitutes a New Jersey termite inspector breach of contract.  It does not matter if the failure was purposeful or inadvertent.  A Contract breach may be material or minor.  The generally accepted rule is that whether a Contract breach is material is a question of fact.   However, Courts will enforce a Contractual provision establishing that a particular Contract breach is grounds for termination of the Contract.   The Homeowner may be able to file a New Jersey termite inspector breach of contract lawsuit even if the breach is minor providing the breach causes the Homeowner measurable injury or damage.  When there has been a minor breach that may have caused the Homeowner injury or damage, it is possible for the court to find that the contractor has nevertheless substantially performed the Contract.  To find that the contractor substantially performed the Contract, the Court must have to conclude from the evidence that the contractor made a good faith effort that actually achieved the essential purpose of the Contract and provide the Homeowner with the fundamental benefits that the Homeowner was supposed to receive from is the Contract.  If the contractor substantially performed is the Contract, it will affect the amount of money damages that can be awarded for the Contract.  Since proving these cases can be challenging, hire an experienced New Jersey termite inspector lawsuit attorney to help you with your case.


HOW DOES A COURT DECIDE IF A NEW JERSEY TERMITE INSPECTOR BREACH OF CONTRACT IS MATERIAL OR MINOR?
A New Jersey termite inspector breach of contract is material if it affects the purpose of the Contract in an important or vital way. A material breach defeats the purpose of the Contract and is inconsistent with the intention of the Homeowner and contractor to be bound by is the Contract terms.  When a contractor materially breaches a Contract, the Homeowner has a right to terminate is the Contract and may be excused from further performance of plaintiff’s remaining obligations under is the Contract.  The Court may use the following criteria for determining whether a New Jersey termite inspector breach of contract is material:
(1) the extent to which the injured party will be deprived of the benefit which he/she reasonably expected; 
(2) the extent to which the injured party can be adequately compensated for the part of that benefit of which he will be deprived;  
(3) the extent to which the Homeowner or Contract defendant failing to perform or to offer to perform will suffer forfeiture;
(4) the likelihood that the Homeowner or Contract defendant failing to perform or to offer to perform will cure his failure, taking account of all the circumstances including any reasonable assurances; 
(5) the extent to which the behavior of the Homeowner or Contract defendant failing to perform or to offer to perform comports with standards of good faith and fair dealing.
Because proving these cases can be complex, seriously consider hiring an experienced New Jersey termite inspector lawsuit attorney to help you with your case.


WHAT HAPPENS IF THE HOMEOWNER’S PROMISE UNDER IS THE CONTRACT WAS DEPENDENT UPON THE CONTRACTOR’S PERFORMANCE AND THE CONTRACTOR FAILS TO PERFORM UNDER THE CONTRACT?
In a New Jersey termite inspector breach of contract lawsuit, when the Homeowner’s promise under is the Contract was dependent upon the contractor’s performance and the contractor fails to perform, then the Homeowner is excused from further performance of  the Homeowner’s promise.  When a Homeowner or contractor materially breaches the Contract but does not indicate any intention to renounce or repudiate the remainder of the Contract, the Homeowner can elect to either continue to perform or cease to perform.  If the Homeowner elects to perform, the Contract, they are deprived of an excuse for ceasing performance.  But even if the Homeowner elects to perform, they can still sue for any injury or damages suffered because of the material breach.  Since proving damages in these cases can be challenging, hire an experienced New Jersey termite inspector lawsuit attorney to help you with your case.


WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY TERMITE INSPECTOR BREACH OF WARRANTY LAWSUIT? 
A New Jersey termite inspector breach of warranty lawsuit may arise where an express warranty is issued by a contractor to a homeowner and the contractor breaches that warranty.  The basic elements of a New Jersey termite inspector breach of warranty lawsuit are: (1) The homeowner was the recipient of or beneficiary under an express oral or written warranty, including any affirmation of fact or promise made by the contractor related to the work under the contract.  (2) the work did not conform to the warranty and/or the Homeowner experienced problems with the contractor’s work.  (3) The New Jersey termite inspector breach of warranty was material rather than one for trivial nonconformities/problems.  (4) The Homeowner gave the contractor an opportunity to cure the nonconformities/problems but the contractor failed to cure those nonconformities/problems.  (5) In a reasonable time after discovering the nonconformities/problems, the Homeowner provided notice to the contractor of the existence of those nonconformities/problems.  (6) In certain warranty cases, such as where the contractor alleges secondary causes, the Homeowner did not continue to make deliberate and unreasonable use of the product after becoming aware of the nonconformity/problem or the Homeowner did not cause the problem or nonconformity by abusing, misusing or modifying the product.(7) The Homeowner suffered damages from the New Jersey termite inspector breach of warranty.


WHAT DAMAGES MIGHT I RECOVER IN A NEW JERSEY TERMITE INSPECTOR BREACH OF WARRANTY LAWSUIT?
A plaintiff who wins a New Jersey termite inspector breach of warranty lawsuit may recover compensatory damages for such losses as may fairly be considered to have arisen naturally from the breach of warranty.  Alternatively, plaintiff may be entitled to such damages as may reasonably be supposed to have been contemplated by both parties, at the time they made the warranty, as the probable result of the breach of such warranty.   Compensatory damages for breach of warranty are designed under the law to place the injured party in as good a monetary position as he/she would have enjoyed if the warranty had been performed as promised.
