Tender of Delivery Law and Legal Definition

Tender of delivery refers to an offer of goods by a seller to a buyer by putting or holding them at the disposition of the buyer and giving the buyer some notification reasonably necessary for taking delivery. Once the buyer makes a purchase he has a rightful claim on the property. It is the duty of the seller to see to it that the buyer receives the goods that he purchases from the seller. If the seller fails to deliver the goods to the buyer, it may constitute a breach. If a seller can cite a lawful reason for the non delivery he may be exempted from the claim. The non acceptance of the delivery made by the seller to the buyer shall also constitute a breach on the buyer’s part.
