Goods in Transit – Liability

Once a contract of sale has been entered (Item/s invoiced or a payment receipted) the purchaser is responsible for adequately insuring the items from point of dispatch (MFA) to the nominated destination.

My Fireplace Australia will not quote, nor include freight insurance on any consignment (Paid freight or Free of Charge)

Section 25 of the Goods Act 1958 (Vic) (Act):

“Unless otherwise agreed the goods remain at the seller’s risk until the property therein is transferred to the buyer, but when the property therein is transferred to the buyer the goods are at the buyer’s risk whether delivery has been made or not…”

That is, once a contract of sale has been entered into (items invoiced, partially or paid in full) , the ownership of the goods is transferred to the buyer, that buyer carries the risk of loss or damage to those goods even if the goods have not been delivered. This position is replicated across legislation in other states.

The parties to a contract of sale of goods can, however by agreement, nominate the point at which ownership and risk will pass from the seller to the buyer to override the position under section 25 of the Act.
