implied terms about quality and fitness

Updated on December 15, 2014

Implied terms about quality and fitness of consumer goods

Section 14 (2) of the Sale of Goods Act (1979) deals with the implied term that where the seller is in course of business there is an implied term that the goods must be of satisfactory quality. This opens up the question of what is 'satisfactory quality'.

Section 14 (2a) of the Sale of Goods Act (1979) states that the goods must be of satisfactory quality so that a reasonable man would think it such. This does very little to show whether or not the goods are of satisfactory quality or not but it is none the less an implied term in all consumer to business contracts.
