Highlight

The nonperformance of a contractual duty when it is due is a breach of the contract.

Under the common law doctrine of apportionment of rent, rent is not apportionable as to time; rather the person who has ownership of the property at the time that rent is due has the right to receive it.

Generally, a material breach by one party gives the non-breaching party the right to terminate the contract.
