LAW ON SALE OF GOODS
CASE: Lim Chui Lai v Zeno Limited  30 MLJ. 314
• Zeno Ltd entered into an agreement with a contractor named
• Under the contract, Zeno Ltd was to provide Ahmad with all the
materials for the culverts construction.
• They brought the materials for the projects and delivered them to
the construction site.
• Later, Ahmad's
• Discovered that the materials had been sold by Ahmad to Lim Chui
Buyer bought goods from a non-owner.
• Whether Buyer has obtained a good (valid) title.
• Whether Buyer can sue under s.14(a) SOGA.
• Ahmad was merely the bailee & not the owner of the goods at
the time he sold them to the Appellant.
• Because Ahmad had no title to the goods / authority to sell
them, he could not pass any title to Appellant.
• Thus, Lim Chui Lai does not have the title upon the materials
bought from Ahmad
◦From my understanding, even though Ahmad had to be
deserved the name for the owner of the material, but
according to Sale of Good Acts 1957, section 27, Ahmad was
merely the bailee and not the owner of the goods at the time
he sold them to the appellant. Since Ahmad had no title to the
goods or authority to sell them, he therefore could not transfer
any title to the appellant.
