A form of Breach of contract where a party announces his intention not to perform his obligations under it (rather that simply not performing it in the expected time and manner). This is also known as 'anticipatory breach of contract'. A person may have the right to repudiate if the other party is in breach of a Condition of the contract, and he may then treat the contract as discharged. However, repudiation is a breach of contract, and if done without good cause will leave the repudiator liable for Damages.
