Legal Speak Made Easy - “Caveat Emptor”

Caveat Emptor

CAVEAT EMPTOR - This is an old legal principle meaning “let the buyer beware” and it’s essentially sensible advice to buyers to inspect whatever they are buying thoroughly before they buy it. Our modern consumer protections have tempered the legal effect of that principle to some extent, but it still applies legally in some instances and in any event it’s always sound practical advice for daily life. So next time you buy a house, or a car, or a pack of apples (or indeed anything) think “caveat emptor”!
