In order for a contract to be binding New Jersey law requires the following conditions are met:

 

  1. Meeting of the minds — the parties reached an agreement to (do what is alleged).

  2. Offer and acceptance — one party communicated a willingness to enter into the agreement and the other party gave some outward indication that the agreement was accepted.

  3. Consideration — each party gave or promised something of value to the other.

  4. Certainty — the terms of the agreement were reasonably certain.

New Jersey Law Elements of a Claim for Breach of Contract 

Under New Jersey Law, in order to establish a contract claim against a breaching party, the plaintiff must prove that:

  1. The parties entered into a contract containing certain terms.

  2. The plaintiff did what the contract required the plaintiff to do.

  3. The defendant did not do what the contract required the defendant to do. This failure is called a breach of the contract.

  4. The defendant’s breach, or failure to do what the contract required, caused a loss to the plaintiff.
