    So purchased a vacuum cleaner however on its first use, the machine failed to pick up food that had stuck to the carpets on the restaurant’s floor.

    The sales brochure included the following statement.

    “This is the best new cleaner on the market. It shifts all kinds of dirt and grime from carpets, curtains and furniture. The use of steam and cyclone technology incorporated into The Terminator will leave rooms fresh and clean.”

    So do I have to go through the whole of s.14 (2) e.g.
    S.14(2B)(a) deals with fitness for all the purposes for which goods of the kind in question are commonly supplied,safety, durability etc.

    Do I also have to go through s.14 (3)??




    In placing the order, Robin had made it clear that the machine was required to spring clean all the public areas of the hotel in time for the New Year.

    SoGa s 14(3), where the buyer makes known to the seller any purpose for which the goods are to be used, then the goods supplied under the contract must be reasonably fit for that purpose (e.g. buying a vacuum cleaner, it should suck up dust and dirt).

    does that mean I ignore s.14 (2)??
