Most lawyers will be familiar with the Sale of Goods Act 1908. But that Act doesn’t even exist anymore!
Apart from its name, what has changed – and what has stayed the same – in respect of the law about a contract which is entered into thousands of times a day in New Zealand?
Presented by the author of Sale of Goods in New Zealand, this On Demand webinar covers key content (but without mention of carbolic smoke balls!) to assist lawyers whose clients buy or sell goods.
- Become better apprised about when the sale of goods legislation (now contained in the Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017) applies.
- Gain a better understanding of the default rules for the passing of property, and title problems with third parties.
