Uniform Sales Law - The UN-Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods

Univ. Prof. Dr. Peter Schlechtriem [*]


e) Remedies for Partial Non-Performance or Partial Lack of Conformity (Article 51)

In the case of partial non-performance or of a delayed or incorrect partial performance, the buyer's remedies, as a rule, are available only with regard to that part (Article 51(1)). The buyer can demand avoidance of the entire contract only when the partial non-performance or partial non-conformity represents a fundamental breach of the entire contract (Article 51(2)).[314] [page 79]
