Remedies for breach of lease terms
A party can, however, claim damages for losses arising after breach. For instance, liability to pay a third party arising directly as a result of breach of contract between the lessor and lessee; cost of engaging third parties to complete outstanding performance for instance, repairing damaged premises which may have been the obligation of the lessor; cost of buying a substitute article; cost incurred for prosecuting or defending legal proceedings etc.
Further, damages from the same cause of action must be assessed and sought once and for all. A second action cannot be brought and would be barred by the principle of res judicata ( a matter already judged by a competent court). In certain circumstances interest on damages have been awarded to preserve the real value of damages on account of inflation, but this is more an exception rather than a rule. Ordinarily, interest is not allowed on damages arising out of breach of contract.
