We are all aware by now the implied statutory warranty on the quality of goods guaranteed by the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) and more particularly sections 55 & 56) of that Act.

There is still, however, a lot of confusion about the Consumer’s Right to choose a Repair, Replacement or Refund in respect of Damaged or Defective Goods as guaranteed by these sections of the Act.

The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA): The Consumers rights to safe, good quality goods. Continued: Section 55: Section 55(5) & (6).

In our last blog we looked at Sections 55 (4).

Today we will turn our attention to sections 55(5) & (6).

The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA): The Consumers rights to safe, good quality goods. Continued: Section 55: Section 55(3).

In our last blog we looked at Sections 55 (3).

Today we will turn our attention to section 55(4).

Section 55 (4) in its totality reads as follows:

The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA): Leases: Some important terms and conditions:

In our last blog we looked at the early termination of lease agreements,

In this blog we intend to renew our acquaintance with some of the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA) dealing with leases and some of their terms and conditions in general in the CPA.

The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA) and the Common Law: Cancellation of Lease Agreements:

Prior to the Consumer Protection Act, No 68 0f 2008 (CPA) which came into effect at midnight on the 31st March 2011; the law of contract and the common law covered the issue of when and how a tenant went about cancelling a lease agreement.

That has all now changed since the commencement date of the CPA; and tenants and landlords need to be aware of the statutory provisions of the Act; which now cover the early termination and cancellation of lease agreements.

 

Because of the number of queries we receive on literally a daily basis from our clients we are once again going to look at what to do in the situation where you have bought a “lemon” from a motor vehicle dealer.

One of the most important decisions a consumer makes during their lifetime from time to time in his or her life is the purchase of a motor vehicle.

The Consumer Protection Act: No 68 of 2008: (CPA): Motor Vehicles and Consumer Rights:

The purchase of defective or previously accident damaged motor vehicles seems to be a hot topic at the moment.

Why this would be the situation we are not sure; but in some ways is not surprising.
