This October sees the consumer landscape changing dramatically with the new Consumer Rights Act 2015 coming into force. The Act replaces old familiar consumer law and also locks out other regulations such as those on unfair terms in consumer contracts. It is vital that all businesses are geared up for the changes as it heralds what should be an easier to understand regime of when consumers are entitled to refunds, repairs, replacements and the right to a repeat performance of a service. So if you are selling goods online or from a premises and/or providing a service then this overview should give a heads up for your business.
