Benjamin's Sale of Goods provides comprehensive coverage of case law and legislation regarding sale of goods in the UK and globally. First published in 1868, this title is a must-have purchase for commercial practitioners, academics and barristers. Part of the Common Law Library, this title has established itself as the premier publication on sale of goods and is frequently cited in court for its depth and coverage.

This new 10th edition takes in major changes to the law since the previous, most importantly: * The Res Cogitans case: a highly significant decision that means a supplier of goods reserves title to them pending payment, but permits the recipient to consume some or all of those goods before the property passes, then the contract is not one of sale at all. Benjamin's Sale of Goods up-to-date new edition guides you through this case law and its implications for those working in this area. * The Consumer Rights Act: this extracts from the Sale of Goods Act all provisions that apply only to consumer sales and also in many but not all instances disapplies the Sale of Goods Act when the contract is a consumer sale.

It is imperative for consumer lawyers to learn how to navigate between the two Acts, which makes the expert commentary you can rely upon in Benjamin's Sale of Goods an absolute necessity, ensuring you get it right for your clients. Benjamin's Sale of Goods leaves you safe in the knowledge you have the expert counsel to rely upon, even when faced with the most complex challenges. The answers you need are at your fingertips, allowing you to find answers quickly and work with confidence.

The Supplement is dedicated to the Consumer Rights Act 2015. It deals with those parts of the Act that concern sale of goods contracts and references related contracts such as hire purchase and services contracts. The 2015 Act is a major statute that largely consolidates existing primary and secondary legislation in the field of consumer sales and related transactions. Its principal effect on the present law is as follows:
• In the Sale of Goods Act 1979, it repeals special provisions that apply only to consumer sales, notably s.14(2)(D)-(F) and Part 5A, and carries them over into the new Act.
• It repeals the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.
• In the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977, it repeals those provisions that apply only to contracts where one party deals as a consumer and largely carries them over into the new Act.
• It disapplies the Sale of Goods Act in so far as this Act confers rights on consumer buyers and carries the relevant provisions over into the new Act.
A new Chapter 14A is dedicated to the new Act and is the subject of the first part of this Supplement. The second part of the Supplement deals with consequential changes to existing Benjamin chapters to take account of the Act.
