Consumer rights are what the law says consumers are entitled to expect when buying goods or services. These include:
goods being of satisfactory quality
goods being as described
goods being fit for any purpose they were supplied for
services and installations being carried out with reasonable care and skill
services and installations being carried out within a reasonable time, where it is not already agreed
services and installations being carried out for a reasonable price, where it is not already agreed
If you are a trader selling goods or services to consumers, you need to be aware of these rights as you may need to provide a remedy if something goes wrong. If you refuse to provide a remedy a consumer is entitled to, you are not trading fairly.
