BUY­ERS’ CODE

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

“The po­si­tion on sale items is ex­actly the same as with non­sale items. If you buy some­thing that is not of sat­is­fac­tory qual­ity, un­der the Sale of Goods Act, you have the right to re­turn it within a rea­son­able pe­riod of time (usu­ally within a month) and get your money back. Or you can ask for a re­pair or a re­place­ment. “If you re­turn it af­ter a month you may not be able to get a re­fund, but you can in­sist on hav­ing ei­ther a re­pair or a re­place­ment, al­though you do not have the choice over which one. “There is noth­ing in law that al­lows you to take some­thing back sim­ply be­cause you have changed your mind. If a par­tic­u­lar fault is drawn to your at­ten­tion when you buy it you can­not claim it was not sat­is­fac­tory. Check the store’s pol­icy be­fore buy­ing.” Which? Con­sumer Le­gal
