Frustration occurs where the contract has become impossible of performance due to an unforeseen act which is beyond the control of both parties1. In such a situation the parties' rights and obligations are terminated without any liability for breach on either side. The parties' rights in this situation are, in the absence of specific contractual provision, governed by the Law Reform (Frustrated Contracts) Act 1943
