What happens where there is a sale of wood but that wood is described as it is "able to be polished and sanded t a good finish" but when it is delivered, it is not polishable and sandable because it has knots in the wood for not being properly cured (as described in the catalogue) in the course of a business?

Thank you so much if anyone helps because it would mean a lot as I have an exam about it.

Look at the 1979 sale of goods act. Look for the section that references sale by description as it would fail on its implied terms here.

Also it would be a failure on its implied term of standard of quality (again cannot remember the section).

These would be considered material breaches of the contract and the buyer could be open to reparation

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Do you have any ideas about what kind of remedies would be avalilable in such a situation? I believe they're under the section 51,52 and 53

If you are in Scotland then remedies can be found under s15A & s53

But yes other buyers remedies are found under s51 & 52.

Also, it doesnt seem to mention it in your problem but make sure there is no express agreement (subject to the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1997) between the parties that cold vary any of the implied terms mentioned previously (s55).
