Burton's Legal Thesaurus. . 2006


inspection
Acceptance of an offer has legal significance in that it concludes the contract and the other party cannot pull out without agreement or for due cause thereafter. Acceptance and rejection of goods is also significant in a contract in that it signifies that the buyer is happy with the goods and services supplied. A key legal question is addressing when the buyer can be considered to have accepted the goods as being of satisfactory quality. The buyer must (by law) have a reasonable opportunity to inspect or examine the goods before he can be taken to have accepted them.
