purchaser buys goods for certain consideration, and that consideration is paid to the
vendor in installments or a series of payments. The purchaser will take possession of
the goods purchased but does not receive title to the goods until the total consideration
owing to the vendor is paid. This document in its draft form contains standard clauses
commonly used in these types of agreements. Additional language may be added
