then you are probably not ready to franchise.
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.

If your Tenant has failed to pay rent or is in breach of some other essential term of the Lease, you may decide that terminating the Lease and searching for a new Tenant is the best way for you to limit your losses. It may be, for instance, that the tenant is impecunious.
Before you will be able to “change the locks” and re-enter your property, Section 124(1) of the Property Law Act provides that you must first serve on your Tenant a notice which states the breach complained of and what the Tenant has to do to remedy the breach.
It is in your best interests that any breach notice is issued correctly the first time. You must ensure that the breach notice is factually accurate and complies with the technical requirements imposed by law.
Providing a defective notice can be costly.
Firstly, a defective notice may give the Tenant the ability to have the notice set aside. This would force you to re-issue the notice thus delaying your efforts to terminate the Lease. This may allow the Tenant to continue to occupy the Premises while in breach until such time as the notice is re-issued correctly.

A person who owes money, may well know that it is often not worthwhile for a creditor to pursue payment. This is because the legal cost of chasing payment is too great. A debtor who believes that a creditor will not chase payment is unfortunately less likely to pay.
