A buyer may intend to use the goods for a particular or unusual purpose, compared to the ordinary use for which the goods are customarily sold. If so, the seller makes an implied warranty that the goods will be fit for that purpose when:
- the buyer relies on the seller ‘s skill or judgment to select or furnish suitable goods, and
- when the seller at the time of contracting knows or has reason to know the buyer’s particular purpose and of the buyer’s reliance on the seller’s judgment.
When the buyer makes the purchase without relying on the seller’s skill and judgment, no warranty of fitness for a particular purpose arises.
