Commercial analysis: The Court of Appeal in Bains considered the proper approach to remedying material breaches of contract where contractual termination clauses are engaged and relied upon. Breach notices will require a cautious interpretation and parties would be well advised to clarify exactly what performance the contractual counter-party considers essential to remedy a breach. Bains confirms that actual performance will be necessary and merely stating an intention to perform will not go far enough. Questions of the extent of catch-up or restored performance required are left open after the decision. Written by James Saunders, barrister, at New Square Chambers.
