As with any set of conditions, it is necessary both to understand the intention of the conditions and to apply them in their proper context. For this reason, these Notes for Guidance are issued to buyers as an aid when using the Model Conditions but it must be understood that they do not form part of, or legally interpret the Conditions in any way.
The Model Conditions aim to achieve a middle ground between buyer and seller being biased in favour of neither.
Some buyers or sellers will prefer to have their own conditions drafted which are in their favour to a much greater extent.
It is stressed that these are Model Conditions and can be added to or amended to suit the requirements of particular contracts by agreement between the parties concerned.
However, in order to secure the advantages of uniformity, it is recommended that such alterations be kept to a minimum.
