Domestic Sale of Goods Student’s Name Institutional Affiliation Domestic Sale of Goods Introduction The sale of goods is a significant undertaking that takes the form of a binding contract between the buyer and the seller. The sales of goods involve the exchange of goods or services with the consideration which in most cases is in monetary terms. The Sale of Goods legislation in commercial transaction has been crafted in a manner that assures the more excellent protection of the consumer from exploitation. The expectations are that a bona fide sale should abide by the requirements of ensuring the product meets the satisfactory quality standards as per the description and desire of the buyer. A complete sale involves the passage of both the title and possession of the goods upon the satisfaction of the buyer on the description and quality of the good. Part A Solent Builders Merchants Limited in worn out. The delivery truck was only two years old and at the time of purchase it was in good shape. The principle of caveat emptor that cautions buyers to beware requires then to take reasonable steps that would identify whether the second-hand vehicle will meet their expectations.

The problem Solent Builders Merchants Ltd (SBM) are builders merchants and supply a range of building products to local tradesmen. On the 10th September 2017 they agree to sell: (1) 1000 sacks of cement (each sack weighing 25 kilos) @ £3 per sack to Bloggs Builders Ltd; and (2) A two-year old delivery truck to Jackson Motors Ltd for £10,000. All sales were made expressly subject to SBM’s standard conditions of sale, a copy of which was sent to all buyers. These conditions state, amongst other things: (a) Title to the goods hereby supplied shall remain with the seller until they are paid for in full nothwithstanding delivery to the buyer; (b) Unless otherwise agreed the price shall be paid within 30 days of delivery. On the 12th September all the cement is delivered to Bloggs Builders. The truck was delivered to Jackson Motors on the 15th September. The full price of the truck was paid immediately. Bloggs Builders are now insolvent and a liquidator has been appointed to wind the company up. Bloggs Builders have not paid for any of the cement. Half the bags of cement had been mixed with sand and pebbles to make concrete slabs for use in the construction of new houses which Bloggs were constructing. Half the slabs had been incorporated into the houses. The other slabs together with the unused bags of cement were in Bloggs’ warehouse. Jackson Motors now complain that the delivery truck had broken down and that a garage mechanic had told them that the truck was clapped out and needed a new engine. He estimated its value as only £2000. Jackson Motors insist on returning the truck and recovering the price they paid. Advise SBM in each of these two situations.
