It may seem that the Uniform
Commercial Code (UCC) is just one
more regulatory maze in which a
contractor can get lost. There are
express warranties, implied
warranties, warranties of
merchantability and fitness, and
warranties of title that may arise
under the UCC. They can help you
or help an unhappy client of yours.
So it's important that you know what
these are, when they apply to you,
and how they work under the UCC.
To begin with, we'll offer a brief
primer on the warranties mentioned
above. In issues to come, we hope to
describe in more detail how they can
apply to you under the UCC.
