Doctrine of Substantial Performance

A person's failure to comply strictly with the terms of a condition will not prevent him from getting his due if he has carried out a substantial part of his contract. This doctrine was developed by the courts as an instrument of justice to prevent forfeitures. However damages may be awarded for any injuries caused by the failure to give complete performance.
