What are "implied terms?

Terms of a contract might be implied by Custom, Statute or the Courts. There are various Acts which imply terms, such as the Sale of Goods Act 1979 as amended. It is for example implied in any such sale that the seller has the right to sell the goods. In the case of business sales, it is implied that goods are fit for purpose, namely of merchantable quality. There are other examples where terms are implied. For example, in an employment Contract, it is implied that the employee will work with reasonable care.
