Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 152. The proverb today is let the buyer
beware. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. The proverb goes all the way
back to Roman times. In Latin the term is caveat emptor. So that's where it
really comes from. It comes from when Latin was the main language in you know,
in Europe. So it goes all the way back to the Roman Empire. Even today this phrase
is still used in law. Okay. The word caveat has the meaning of a warning to
the limits of an agreement. Okay. And Emptor referred to you know, the the buyer or
the person who's doing the buying, who buys something. All right. Let's continue. It
basically means that it is up to the buyer to be responsible for checking out
whether something is worthy, of worthy quality or worthy to buy or suitable for
you. It basically lets you know that a seller is not obligated to volunteer any
negative information about the item he or she is selling. Okay. This places the
responsibility on the buyer to do proper research and ask proper questions. Okay.
The seller is still not supposed to lie or do false advertising. So he can't do
that. However if the buyer does not properly check the item, the seller is
not at fault. So if you take it home later and there's still a problem with
it well then maybe you might be out of luck. Okay. So let's look at a couple of
examples here. Number one. Let the buyer beware. One should never buy property
sight unseen. Remember, I did an adverb phrase about that a while ago. If you buy
property without actually physically seeing it that is site unseen.
So if you do that you're kind of setting yourself up. That you know could
turn out badly. You know. So be careful of that one. Don't do that one. Or number two
here. The principle of caveat emptor or let the buyer beware
usually applies with the purchase of garage sale items or you know, when you
buy from flea markets or someplace that's like secondhand. Now regular
stores of course they may have their own policies and then whatever they're
listed policies you would go by that. But if they don't have any listed
policies. You know usually this would apply. Okay. Anyway I hope you got it. I
hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
