Sample Letter -1

Breach of contract complaint letterThis letter serves as a formal notice to you that you have breached the contract signed between us on [Date]. According to the contract, I was supposed to receive a supply of hair dyes from your company for my beauty salon after making the advance payment. The delivery was to be made within a week. However, it has been a month and I have still not received the supplies for which I have already made the advance payment.


I am hereby canceling the contract with you and would like to demand a full refund of my advance payment. I am not interested in doing business with you anymore owing to your poor service and unprofessional attitude.

Kindly contact me as soon as you receive this notice. In case I don’t hear from you or receive my refund soon, I shall follow a legal action against you.

Sample Letter -2

Breach of contract complaint letterThis letter serves to notify you that your company has breached the contract signed between us on [date]. The agreement clearly stated that you will complete the required renovation work at our office within a period of two weeks. However, the place is still a mess after an entire month. We granted you the deadline extension you requested last week. But even the extension period is over now with no considerable progress.

All our office work is on hold due to your delay. We are facing a loss owing to your agreement violation. We, therefore, demand a compensation from your company for this loss. Additionally, you must complete the remaining work within this week. A failure to fulfill either of these conditions will compel us to seek legal help against you.
