Sale of Goods Act

The Sale of Goods Act 1979 and especially section 14 relating to satisfactory quality now replaced by the Consumer Rights Act is one of the most common complaints or phrases raised by customers along with its older relation relating to Hire Purchase finance agreements. However, what is satisfactory quality can be easier said than proven and car legal rights advice from a lawyer can save time and money in the long run.

Consumer rights

For transactions and car dealer contacts and sales agreements after the 1st October 2015 the Sale of Goods Act, Supply of Goods and Services and unfair contract terms are all consolidated into the Consumer Rights Act.

ADR Directive

In concert with the Consumer Rights Act comes the ADR Directive encouraging the use of alternative dispute resolution and settling customer complaints without having to go to court. The scheme is voluntary and reliant on both the motor dealer and customer agreeing to a third party mediator trying to broker a settlement agreement.
