Show Summary Details


This chapter begins with a discussion of the concept of enforced performance, which means, in its broadest sense, a process whereby the creditor obtains as nearly as possible the actual subject-matter of his bargain, as opposed to compensation in money for failing to obtain it. It then discusses the availability of enforced performance covering four typical solutions: enforced performance subject to exceptions, enforced performance based on content of obligation, specific performance as a discretionary remedy, and mixed approaches.

Keywords: enforced performance; creditor; obligation; compensation; discretionary remedy
