As a consumer, whenever you purchase goods or services from a business, you will agree to their terms of service and their conditions. In turn, service providers and businesses have a duty to ensure that goods are fit for purpose, comply with Trading Standard regulations, and are sold as described.
What Should You Do To Enforce Your Consumer Rights
If you have received a service or purchased an item that has not met your requirements or has fallen short of expectations, following the necessary complaint procedures should be your first course of action. If the supplier refuses to fix a faulty product or service, or issue you with a refund, depending on the product or service mis-sold, seeking legal advice is the next step. A lawyer will be able to explain the options available and advise on the best route to achieving a fast resolution to your consumer dispute.
