Most companies have Terms & Conditions (T&Cs) of some sort but are yours doing the job they need to?
In truth, much of the business of selling vehicles is governed by the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (CRA) and to a lesser degree the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (SOGA). You cannot contract out of statutory rights. Therefore, you cannot have terms that seek to limit a consumer’s right to reject a vehicle or avoid having to repair a vehicle but there are some greyer areas where the odds can turn in your favour. Also, some companies have niche interests that require special terms to take this into account.
Having robust Terms and Conditions are important and Lawgistics are always happy to review our members’ T&Cs. We can provide an overview of them plus tips on how to close any potential loopholes.
Please contact us and we can provide a copy of the template for your perusal.
So don’t delay, join Lawgistics today.
