Frustrated Contracts Act 1978 (NSW) - Level 4

View Legislation

A frustrated contract is a contract that, subsequent to its formation, and without fault of either party, is incapable of being performed due to an unforeseen event/s. The Act recognises that frustration discharges any future promises in the contract; and allows for the repayment of money paid before frustration, payment for any benefit that a party may have received under the contract, and payment of part of all reasonable costs incurred in performing the contract.
