Fit for Particular Purpose Law and Legal Definition

The term fit for particular purpose means that a particular good is fit and capable not only for the job that they generally do, but they are also good and capable for performing some other specific job. For instance a public transport carrier is fit for its normal purpose if it can be used to take people from place to place, but if it can be used to tow a boat, then such public transport carrier is said to be fit for particular purpose.

Generally when a seller, provider, or manufacturer who knows about a buyer's particular use gives a products, goods, or services that is fit for the ordinary use for which they are intended, an implied warranty for fitness for a particular purpose is created.
