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.

We are now offering a template of standard T&Cs for our members including a privacy policy to cover how you handle data.

Please contact us and we can provide a copy of the template for your perusal.

So don’t delay, join Lawgistics today.

Divorcing couples and their cars

The vast majority of cases are not theft. They are civil disputes and for this reason we would initially recommend speaking to a solicitor or Citizens Advice.

Get it in writing

Besides being an account of entirely unreasonable customer behaviour, this is an example of what can go wrong with oral agreements.

Warranty terms are not just important but required by law

In most cases, a consumer will have the protection of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and any warranty given will only be in addition to those rights.
