In Debt

We all owe money to one or more creditors.

Sometimes it is a lot of money owed to a bank like for example the bond on our house or the car that we bought for ourselves or the family.

At other times it is a smaller amounts owed on a credit card or on one or more clothing accounts etc.

All debt and the repayment of debt is however important and we should not underestimate the role it plays in all of our lives. As we know; credit providers including banks, financial institutions, clothing shops and other retailers provide information on our debt levels and our record of repaying that debt to the various credit record companies like ITC, Experian etc; and it is these records that give other retailers an indication of your credit health. They do research before they decide whether or not to lend you money or allow you to open another account. Your credit health and record are vitally important to your everyday life and financial well-being. It is to your advantage to look after your credit health.

We have been looking at the implied warranty on the quality of goods guaranteed by the Consumer Protection Act and more particularly section 55 & 56 of that Act of Parliament.

As we now know; we as consumers have the choice of repair, refund or replace in the event of goods bought by us being defective or damaged at the time of the sale.

This rule also applies to a motor vehicle; both new and used.

Tens of thousands of motor vehicles are bought every month for both new and second-hand

motor car dealerships and there are many complaints for the purchasers about the quality of the vehicle bought by them.

Motor vehicles are high-value items and also at the same time a depreciating asset.
