EUROPEAN WARRANTY: Within the first 14 days the consumer has the right to reject the goods if they are not of satisfactory quality, not as described or not fit for purpose. This starts from the point the consumer has received the goods. If the customer has purchased without seeing the goods (ie internet sale) then the consumer can also return the goods just because the consumer has decided he no longer wants them. The consumer has a further 14 days to return the goods to the seller from the point of notification. The seller is entitled to full refund including standard carriage costs, including the cost to return the item to the seller. If the customer has paid special delivery then the seller only has to cover the standard carriage costs. The seller must refund this within a reasonable time (14 days) of receiving the goods back from the consumer.
If the items arrive damaged or faulty then the consumer has the right to reject or receive a replacement. The consumer has 14 days to notify the seller, 14 days to send back and the seller has 14 days to refund or replace.
If the item becomes faulty within 6 months of receiving the goods due to a defect, then consumer has the right to repair or replacement as the defect is considered have been there at point of purchase. If the repair or replacement is not satisfactory or not performed within a reasonable time then the customer is entitled to a refund. This doesn’t need to be the full amount, the reseller can deduct wear and tear.
If the item becomes faulty 6 months after receipt of goods then the consumer has to prove that the item was faulty when purchased.
The seller cannot charge the consumer for the repair, or the costs involved in having the item repaired and sent back to them – but only if that fault was deemed to have existed at point of sale.
