Comparative law notes

This is the best choice when the context is broader than a formal commercial trade transaction, when it is more abstract under the German Civil Code (BGB). In that case, this translation would be used to describe the buyer's duty to accept delivery of the purchased property item under a purchase contract (sec. 433 (2) BGB.)
