P bought a car from D. P later sold it to X. Not discovered it was a stolen car till much later. P wants money back from D based on total failure of consideration. D said P could only make a claim for breach of warranty not rescind the K
Can P recover the monies from D based on failure of consideration?
Where seller has breached condition of title the buyer is entitled to recover the price w/o any allowance being made for the use of the goods
When seller has no right to sell the goods in the 1st place, the buyer retains the right to reject goods at a later date then normal (treat as breach of condition not just breach of warranty)
P is entitled to recover his monies -- got money back even though couldn't redeliver car to the seller
There is no property in stolen goods:
** A person in possession of stolen goods does not own those goods which means they are not able to transfer title in those goods to a potential buyer.
