Consumer Rights

Consumer rights are protected by law. If you have purchased goods or services from an individual or company, your purchase will be covered by provisions in the Sale of Goods Act 1979, Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 and Consumer Rights Act 2015.

These protections are designed to imply terms into contracts for goods and services to ensure they are of a certain quality and match the description made by the seller. Customers who have purchased an item that is faulty or does not match the description with which it was advertised may be able to rely on these statutory provisions to remedy their situation. The law also ensures that services should match up to what has been agreed between the buyer and seller, and that they are provided with reasonable care and skill.

Whether you wish to make a claim against a seller, or are defending a claim made by a customer, Kings Cross Barristers can offer advice, litigation and advocacy in proceedings relating to sale of goods and service and consumer rights.
