Introduction

PASS 4 I have to outline how consumers might be protected in a contract for the supply of goods and services such as faulty plumbing of a new kitchen. I am required to provide an outline description of the effect of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982, including the quality and delivery of services, relating them to the service that is required. * Implied terms in contracts for services Under the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982, the following terms are automatically implied in contracts for the supply of a service.

The Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 The Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 operates by declaring certain terms which may already be within the consumer's contract to be so unfair that they are invalid. The Act stepped in largely to give protection where consumers found that they were not protection because of either: * A term in written contract which had not noticed or understood, or * A notice which had become incorporated as a term of a contract, unknown to the consumer, and depriving the consumer of basic rights. ...read more.
