When you place an order with a supplier, you expect your goods to be delivered safely and securely, arriving to you in the same condition they left the warehouse. But what if your goods are damaged upon receipt? What are your legal options? Our specialists in the field of contract law can assist you to ensure that you get what you are entitled to.
Send a notice of default
If your goods are damaged in transit and/or were not in perfect condition when leaving the warehouse, then your supplier is in breach of contract. Before you can take legal action, it is important that you give the other party a reasonable chance to still fulfill the agreements from the contract. This is done by means of a notice of default. This way you can ask the supplier to make it right either by fixing the goods or replacing them. If your supplier does not respond to this notice of default, then there is an omission. In that case you can demand compensation and possibly terminate the contract with your supplier.
