Reclusion Perpetua

The client has two options:

1) Action for Specific Performance and damages - This action is to compel the contractor to perform his obligation under the contract plus a monetary award (damages) for his failure to do so.


2) Action for Cancellation of Contract and damages - This action is for the client to cancel the contract due to breach committed by the contractor plus damages. The amount paid will be ordered returned to the client less the value of the structure already constructed plus a monetary award (damages) for breach.

Should you need legal assistance, please email

Best regards,

Atty. Katrina
