Sale and Supply of Goods and Services

The Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1982 states that all products should be of 'satisfactory quality'. This means they should be safe, be fit for their intended purpose, last for a reasonable amount of time and have nothing wrong with them. The Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 also requires traders to provide services to a proper standard of workmanship, within a reasonable time and for a reasonable cost.

 This can apply to all goods you can purchase, but also services you can receive such as from dentists, restaurants, hairdressers, builders and plumbers.

It is important to have contracts in place, so if goods or services do not conform to the contract, you should be entitled to have them repaired or replaced or have a reasonable price reduction.

We can ensure businesses and service providers are covered with suitable contracts in place.
