    Hi! I have this essay to do on the sales of goods act 1979, in particular i have to demonstrate that it is common to plead a breach of the implied term as to fitness for purpose as well as satisfactory quality

    The second part of the question I do not understand at all. It have to show that the scope of the term implied by section 14(2) of the Sale of Goods Act 1979, is very wide and therefore s14(3) is no longer useful.

    What on earth is this meant to include, I don't even understand s14(3). My real dilemma is not understanding what part 2) is asking of me and what the answer should should include.

    Please help point me in the right direction, i'm desperate

      I found this site useful when I was studying commercial law.

      In relation to s.14, the provisions can be summarised roughly as follows:
      • S.14(2) - goods must be of satisfactory quality for all common purposes
      • S.14(3) - goods must be of satisfactory quality for a particular purpose if B told S what the purpose was


      I'd argue that s.14(3) might still be of use in those cases where the purpose is uncommon but still made known to S. I'd have a look for articles by Louise Merrett, Atiyah, Munday and Benjamin on this point, since they're usually fairly informative.
