Cover

contract buyer breach check

To protect or shelter; to make good; to insure. To cover a check means to deposit sufficient funds in a bank account to pay the amount written on a check or checks.

The right of a purchaser to buy goods other than those that were originally contracted for as a remedy in the event of a breach of contract by the seller.

In contract law concerning sales transactions, the UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE provides that a buyer may use cover for protection in an action for breach of a sales contract. The person may, in GOOD FAITH, purchase substitute goods when a seller violates their contract by failure to deliver goods. The buyer may then recover the difference between the original goods or contract price and the cost of cover.
