performance of contract



Execution of a contract by which the contracting parties are automatically discharged (see discharge of contract) of their obligations under it. Although contracts usually call for full and precise performance, a substantial performance may be acceptable under certain circumstances, on a pro rata basis, or on payment of damages for the unfinished or defective performance.
