The Transfer Of Risk In Sale Agreements

Bainbridge, S., “Trade Uses in International sales of Goods: An Analysis of the 1964 and 1980 sales Conventions” (spring 1984) 24 (3) Virginia Journal of International Law.619. Before conducting a lengthy analysis, there are several basic rules regarding the risk of losses under the agreement. As noted above, Chapter IV of the agreement covers the risk of loss in sections 66 to 70 included. The sale of goods becomes complicated when a large quantity of goods is involved or when the value of the product is abnormally high. Complications also occur when selling goods for perishable goods, such as raw fruit, vegetables or meat. Furniture includes all types of personal property, including shares and shares, crops, grass and objects that are related to the land or that are part of the land that must be separated before the sale or as part of the sale contract. It does not apply to achievable receivables and money. [1] The exchange or exchange of goods is not covered by this Act, as it is governed by the general provisions of the Indian Contract Act of 1872. A closer examination of Rule II, pursuant to Article 67, paragraph 1, second sentence, would be applicable.

The result is a risk of the goods being transferred to the first carrier when the goods are delivered. For practical purposes, this means in the shipping port, because the seller organizes and contracts for shipping the goods to the buyer. The first rule is guaranteed in section 66 of the ICSG, which essentially states that the buyer must meet his obligation to pay the price. However, if the seller has caused damage by deed or negligence, the buyer has the right not to make the payment. Although the provision seems, as if it is against the seller, in practice, sellers usually work with porters. Therefore, if the damage is caused by the carrier and the risk of loss is transferred to the buyer, the buyer may be faced with a payment obligation, even if the goods are delivered properly to the buyer. Suppose for the moment that the seller is contractually obliged to deliver the goods to the buyer. Suppose then that the seller uses his own trucks to deliver the goods to the buyer within another country. Can we assume that this sales contract is transportation? If so, will the risk pass from the seller to the buyer when he loads his own trucks? The answer to both situations is no.

Section 67 specifies that the transfer of risk is only made if the goods are handed over to a carrier. In the following pages, we will examine how the agreement manages risk transfer in different scenarios. This review requires a detailed analysis of the various provisions and a commentary. 5. The risk of loss in commercial transactions is not a new matter of commercial law. In MacCormack, G., “Alfenus Varus and the law of Risk in Sale” (1985) 101 Law.Q.
