Justipedia explains Perfect Tender Rule
The perfect tender rule is designed to prevent buyers from being forced to pay money for goods that are not as described by the seller. Because of this law, sellers are obligated to make sure that everything that they sell is in good condition, and that they do not lie about the condition of the product when selling it to customers.
The perfect tender rule can be extremely important in situations where buyers are purchasing large amounts of goods from a seller.
