CONTRACT: Show me the molar

08 August 2014  

Gregg Rowan and Daniel Woods consider a recent case on repudiatory breach

In a recent decision, the Court of Appeal held that the deliberate withholding of payments due under a contract, in circumstances where the counterparty could expect to receive payment eventually, did not amount to a repudiatory breach so as to entitle the counterparty to terminate the contract: Valilas v Januzaj [2014].
