As-is’ denotes that an item is being sold in whatever condition it presently exists. The buyer accepts
the item with all faults, even if these faults are not readily apparent. Buyers should take time to
thoroughly examine all items sold as-is before making purchases. A thorough examination may
include seeking an expert opinion. However, if the item being sold is misrepresented by the seller,
the as-is disclaimer may be unenforceable.
