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.

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

At The Legal Advice Office, we often get asked about refunds due to consumers in terms of either the common law or in terms of the CPA.

As a result of yet another two enquiries today regarding firstly, the recent purchase of motor vehicle which was previously involved in a collision (which fact was not disclosed to our client) and secondly, with regard to a vehicle that was bought last month and which quite clearly has numerous material defects which have now become apparent to the purchaser since the date of sale; we thought that we need to explain this issue of when you are entitled to a refund one again today.

The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008: (CPA): Warranty Protection: Second Hand Cars

 

The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA) came into operation at midnight on the 31st March 2011; and has been the law since that date.

It changed Consumer Law irrevocably and the entire intention of the Act is to protect Consumers against unfair business practices which had become rife.

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

The Consumer Protection Act, No 68 of 2008; (CPA); which, as mentioned in our last blog, came into effect at midnight on the 31st March 2011 has changed consumer law in the RSA irrevocably.

There are a number of innovative consumer protection mechanisms in the CPA which are revolutionary in nature.

The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA):  How it protects buyers of Motor Vehicles and other Major Purchase Consumer Items.

The Consumer Protection Act (CPA), No 68 of 2008, came into operation at midnight on the 31st March 2011.

It is an extraordinary piece of legislation protecting consumers from all sorts of previously bad business practices.

We, at The Legal Advice Office, get a lot of enquiries from clients and consumers who feel that they have been ripped off especially when it comes to the poor quality of motor vehicles that they have purchased
