Specific performance ordered before the contractual completion date

accepted

A High Court decision may provide assistance to businesses seeking to enforce compliance with contractual obligations before there has been an actual breach of contract. In this case, the court made an order for specific performance of a contractual obligation to carry out building works in relation to leasehold property.

This appears to be the first authority that the court may, before the time for performance of a contractual obligation, order the specific performance of that obligation and require the defendant to take steps to achieve the prescribed result.

This is helpful to those seeking to enforce compliance with contractual obligations before there has been an actual breach of contract.
