What is specific performance?

Specific performance is a remedy sought in civil court in lieu of money. It is often used in contracts for the sale of land, but it can apply in other circumstances as well. When money isn't adequate to compensate a plaintiff for his loss, the plaintiff may seek specific performance. When a court grants specific performance, the defendant is required to do whatever is promised.
