What is the difference between a breach of warranty and a breach of a condition?
A warranty is less important than a condition and does not impact on the main purpose of the contract. A breach of a warranty entitles the injured party to claim for damages ONLY. They may not repudiate the contract. A condition is a major term that goes to the root of the contract. Such term is essentials to the main purpose of the contract and therefore the injured party is entitled to repudiate the contract as well as make a claim for damages.

A default is when you are not able to pay back due to unforeseencircumstances but you will soon. A breach of contract is when youhave not paid back in a long time.
Breach of contract is where one party to a contract fails to abide by a contractual obligation. This occurs after the obligation to perform a certain act comes due. I.e., I gi…ve you $20 and you will give me your basketball by Friday. Friday comes and goes, and you didn't give me your basketball. Breach of contract. Anticipatory breach is where one party makes a clear, unequivocal statement to the effect that he will not perform his contractual obligations. This occurs before the deadline to perform occurs. To use the stupid basketball example above, if you tell me on Thursday, "There's no way in hell I'm giving you that basketball tomorrow. Want your $20 back? Sue me! Ha!" That would be an anticipatory repudiation of the contractual obligation to give me the basketball on Friday. Even though you're telling me on Thursday, before your obligation to give me the ball comes due (on Friday), I have the right to treat it as an actual breach of contract and sue. Of course, with anticipatory breach, if you retract your repudiation before the deadline to perform rolls around, you are OK - provided that I have not done anything in reliance on your anticipatory repudiation. I.e., Thursday you tell me there's no way you're giving me that basketball, but then Thursday night you say, "I take it back. You'll get your ball tomorrow." That would make you no longer in breach - as long as I did not rely on the breach and go out and buy a new basketball or something.

The most common are that the problem is not covered within the specic written terms of the warranty, because the owner did something to void the warranty or that the warranty …has expired. For example a car warranty would cover defects in manufacturing of a particular part, but not accidental damage to that part. If an engine part failed due to a defect, it would be covered, but if it were damaged in an accident, the defense would be that it is not covered under the warranty becacuse it was not a defect. A condition of a warranty might be that the car must be maintained properly, with oil changes, etc. If an engine part failed dure to improper or no maintenance, the defense would be that that damage is not covered under the warranty because the owner failed to keep the engine properly maintained. Another defense is that the damage occurred outside the time period or mileage limit of the warranty. If there is a 1 year warranty, an engine that fails on the last day of the warranty would be covered, but an engine thet failed 1 day later would not be covered. Same goes for any mileage limitation. If the engine has a 50,000 mile warranty and the engine fails at 50,000 miles it will be covered but if it fails at 50,000, the defense would be that it is no longer covered.
A tort is a civil wrong based upon the common law of trespass on a person or their property or other rights, as may also be specified in statutes. Torts exist without any othe…r relationship between the parties; you can negligently injure a total stranger and be held liable for the tort. A contract is a private agreement between two or more parties that previously did not have the specific obligations, duties or rights set forth in the contract. Unless there is proof of a contractual relationship and breach, the court will not grant damages. Consider, however, that some torts overlap contracts. If you are lied to as part of getting you to agree, that may be fraud (a tort). If you interfere with someone else's contracts, that could be a tortious interference. If you have a signed waiver and release in exchange for benefits, that could be used as a defense in a tort claim for property damage or injuries. If you have a license to publish a song, you can use that license as a defense if you are sued for civil copyright infringement (a tort).
In LEGAL terminology the words "breach or breached" mean broken or violated.
A contract between two or more parties might contain conditions. Ifa condition of a contract is broken, it is a breach of condition.

No, it's the other way around where the breach of condition can become a breach of warranty.

A breach of contract is just that, a failure to abide by the agreement. A tort refers to damages that can be shown when there was no specific contract. Depending on the jurisd…iction some actions may be brought as a breach of contract or a tort, or specify which is appropriate. An example is when someone is injured by something under warranty.
