Thread: Legal rights with purchased items

    Legal rights with purchased items

    Ok a thread I'm reading got me thinking ......
    If you buy an item in Uk from a retailer , and it goes defective for no reason through normal use etc.....

    What are your rights?

    I've heard if anything bought in UK covered by a one year warranty?
    Is this true if not what is?

    Buy by credit card?

    Your " deal" is,with retailer not manufacturer so any retailers who tell you , you must go to manufacturer are slopey shoulders?


    There a lot of here say etc

    What's the facts?
    This might help others in the future

    Cheers

    Contract is always with the retailer, not the manufacturer.

    Goods must be "fit for purpose" irrespective of warranty period.

    You should not be out of pocket - i.e. retailer must always pay return postage

    Buy with a credit card and you have cover if the item cost over 100

    With regard to what are your rights & what should you do to resolve an issue

    Just a thought that it's something we could learn from

    Remember, this only applies to B2C transactions, not B2B.

    If you expense against your tax then you are not covered.
