Breach of Warranty

Definition - What does Breach of Warranty mean?

A breach of warranty is when a manufacturer or a seller refuses to uphold promises that they made to the consumer. For example, if a person has a three year warranty on their lap top that includes repairs, and the manufacturer refuses to repair the computer within the three year period, this would be a breach of warranty

Justipedia explains Breach of Warranty

A breach of warranty is when a seller or manufacturer goes back on their word. In a warranty, a company makes certain promises to the consumer. These promises are legally binding once the contract is signed. So, if a company breaches its warranty, it can lead to a law suit. Warranties exist to provide the consumer with guarantees for certain conditions regarding the product for sale. So, if a company breaches its warranty, they have essentially lied about what they have legally promised.
