Consumer Rights Act 2015
In our Summer newsletter, we highlighted upcoming changes to UK consumer law that were due to come into effect in October 2015. As anticipated, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 came into force on 1 October. With the festive season approaching, we anticipate that consumer sales will be higher than ever. It is therefore crucial that anyone who trades with consumers is aware of the effect that the new law will have on their business.
The new Act consolidates a patchwork of previous consumer law. It gives enhanced rights to consumers buying goods and services. It also introduces the concept of "digital media".
