When a retailer purchases from a wholesaler or a manufacturer the retailer must ensure that they know the limitations of the goods purchased.  If the goods are faulty then the retailer may be liable to any subsequent buyer.

Whenever a retailer sells goods to a consumer there is a sale agreement and conditions are implied into that agreement.  Consumers may make use of these conditions to successfully claim against a retailer.

The stakes can be high!  If a product is not fit for a purpose it may cause damage and necessitate rectification works the cost of which may go well beyond the cost of the goods supplied.
