As Is Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term As Is.

As Is (adj.)

"As Is" is a term used to indicate that an item is being sold in its current state, regardless of any faults or defects it may have. The seller does not make any guarantees about the quality or condition of the item, and the buyer assumes the risk that the item may not meet the usual standards or expectations. This term is frequently applied to sales of vehicles, properties, or damaged goods, where the buyer accepts the item "as is" and cannot later complain about defects they did not notice at the time of purchase.
