The Consumers Rights Act 2015
Please note law changed from 1st October 2015 and the Sale Of Goods Act no longer applies (unless product purchased before that date). The new law is The Consumer Rights Act 2015
Whereas before the law was unclear as to how many days you had to ask for a refund for unwanted, or faulty items, the new law is set in stone.
A refund would apply if an item becomes faulty within 30 days upon the return to seller of the ‘faulty’ product. From day 31 a replacement or repairable unit will be sent if faulty (the ‘faulty’ product needs to be returned as new, complete etc).
Distance Selling regulations apply for items sold on-line and says if unwanted, it has to be exactly as new, complete and returned within 14 days of the items arrival (returned at Buyers expense). From day 15 it cannot be returned at all as unwanted.
