The sale of defective goods: understanding a seller’s liability

Legal Guides

The aim of this Business Guide is to set out the ways that a seller of goods (and produce) can be liable to the buyer of those goods (or even to a third party), if the goods are faulty or defective.
If you are entering into a contract to buy or sell goods, then you are agreeing to perform certain obligations, in return for the other party performing their obligations. It is suggested that you take legal advice on the implications of entering into a contract, particularly where there is a lot of money involved or where you are buying or selling a key item.
