b. Terms implied in every contract to which the Sale of Goods Act applies
1. Seller has the title to the goods and right to sell the good
Condition = fundamental breach
Have to have ownership and have to be able to
transfer the ownership
If they don’t have ownership than that would be a
fundamental breach

If they have ownership and can transfer ownership but
has a loan against the object, the new owner can
check the PPSA to see if there are any liens with the
