Is this considered a form of misinterpretation leading to a breach of contract ?
I LIVE IN FLORIDA AND I NEED A LAWYER WHO PRACTICES IN THE STATE OF NY TO REVIEW A EQUIPMENT RENTAL CONTRACT THAT WAS SIGNED AND AGREED UPON FOR JULY 30,2022 IN BROOKLYN, NY. THE LOCATION OF THE EVENT WAS RELOCATED DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES. THE NEW LOCATION WAS ONLY 2.5 MILES AWAY FROM THE ORIGINAL LOCATION. I NEEDED TO CHANGE THE TENT SIZE TO A SIZE THAT CAN FIT INTO OUR NEW FACILITY. WAS NO LONGER NEEDED BUT SERVICES AND OTHER CONTRACTED EQUIPMENT WERE STILL NEEDED. COMPANY STATES SINCE I WANT TO DOWNSIZE THE TENT I AM CANCELING WHICH IS NOT THE CASE.
I ADVISED THE OWNER ABOUT HIS ASSISTANT MISLEADING ME INTO BUYING A SMALLER TENT THAN WAS NEEDED. THE TENT HAS A CAPACITY OF ABOUT 500 PEOPLE ONLY, BUT I WAS TOLD THAT 1200 PEOPLE CAN FIT. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO WORK WITH THE OWNER AND HAS REFUSED TO WORK WITH ME AND HAS FOUGHT THE TWO DISPUTE CLAIMS I HAVE MADE WITH THE BANK. OWNER CXLD CONTRACT AND STATES THAT I CANCELLED IT BY WANTING TO MAKE A CHANGE TO THE TENT. NOWHERE ON THE CONTRACT STATES CHANGES CAN’T BE MADE. I SPENT $9,298.00 AND I HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT. THE CONTRACT IS VERY AMBIGUOUS. CAN THIS BE CONSIDERED A BREACH OF CONTRACT WITH THE MISINTERPRETATION OF THE TENT?

You need to consult an attorney to review the terms of the contract.
Use of the ContractsCounsel Q&A Forum does not create an attorney-client relationship between User and any Lawyer User. The Forum is not a substitute for legal advice from a lawyer but is intended to be educational and to help the user determine if legal services are necessary.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.
I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
