sale
a transaction involving the transfer of property from one person to another for a consideration. In the case of goods, a money consideration called the price. If money is not exchanged then the contract may be one of barter. In the UK a common code (with some important differences reflect the civilian origin of the Scottish legal system) exists for goods in the Sale of Goods Act 1979. The original Act of 1893 became something of a model for many Commonwealth jurisdictions. Sale of heritage or real property rules are different because of the general attitude of respect for landed property rights. Both in England and in Scotland, the buyer of land must satisfy himself that the property meets his expectations in regard to quality, title and description. See cif, description, fas , f.o.b., nemo dat quod non habet, quality, risk, sample, specific goods, stoppage in transit, title, unpaid seller.

sale
n. A transfer of property or title thereto in exchange for a sum of money; the agreement or contract by which such a transfer takes place. A sale requires a free offer in exchange for a freely agreed-upon purchase price between two individuals who are competent to contract with each other, and who have mutually agreed to the deal. An actual exchange or promised exchange of money is required. Finally, the object, parcel, or title being sold must be capable of being transferred by the seller.
