This chapter discusses the rules relating to agreements for the sale and supply of goods and services. Contracts for the sale of goods and terms implied into business to business contracts by the Sale of Goods Act 1979 are examined. The Consumer Rights Act 2015, introduced to simplify and enhance the position of consumers, is considered. The terms of contracts between traders and consumers for the sale and supply of goods, services, and digital content are discussed together with remedies for breach of contract. Rights to ownership and possession of goods, and when rights may be transferred from a seller to a buyer are explained. General rules on delivery of goods, the duties of a seller and buyer, and the remedies available for breach are discussed. Finally, the terms of business to business contracts for the supply of goods and services, hire of goods, and hire purchase are discussed.
