Implied Warranty of Fitness

Primary tabs

 An implied warranty of fitness may arise when a buyer requests something for a particular purpose, and the seller then supplies a product for that purpose.  For example, if a farmer goes to a farm supply store, and tells the salesman he needs a plow for the rocky soil of his farm, and the salesman directs him to a particular plow, there may be an implied warranty that the plow in question is fit for use in rocky soil.

Contrast with implied warranty of merchantability.
