Gain a better understanding of “time is of the essence” clauses.
“Time is of the essence” refers to a contractual position in which, if the subcontractor fails to complete its obligations by a specified date, then the contractor can treat the contract as terminated. Setting a completion date is not sufficient to make time of the essence. This video reviews indications of this type of clause and discusses when delayed performance will likely result in a material breach of the subcontract.
