Perfect-Tender Rule

Perfect-Tender Rule

Definition

Provides that in a contract for the sale of goods, the goods and their delivery must conform to the contract in every respect, including the time of delivery. If the goods deviate even slightly from the terms of the contract, then the seller has breached the contract. The buyer may elect to reject or accept the goods in their entirety, or the buyer may accept some goods and reject the rest. The perfect-tender rule is a substantial deviation from the common law.
