In the case of delivery of the product, it must be handledwith care and delivered to the respective customer within the stipulated time. In case 1 theimplied rule (S13) was not followed as the delivery man broke the product during its shippingprocess. However, there was no problem as far as the delivery time is concerned. (S14). In case2, the product matches the description and was qualitatively fine. However, there was casualnessin the behaviour the delivery man, as the product was left outside without anyone receiving it,after which it got stolen. As stated by (Dias Simões, (2017, p.161), the customer paid the pricefor the fitting which was not accomplished and she is liable for a refund. In case 3 the rule of S13and S14 were followed.

In accordance with the terms of the contract (S27) the sellermust deliver the product to the customer in hand and she must accept and pay for the same.However, in case 2, the carpet was delivered in the absence of the customer and left unattended,which led to its theft.c) Evaluating the legal provisions on buyers’ and sellers’ available remedies incase of breach of contract by either party.According to the Rights and Remedies, the consumer must be satisfied with the product,including its quality, description and price.
