Contracts made between businesses and consumers are subject to a broad range of consumer protection laws. These exist to provide consumers with irrevocable rights, yet at the same time they create a legal minefield for businesses, which must tread carefully to keep their contracts within the law.

Gaby Hardwicke Associate Solicitor Gemma Ritchie (pictured) has compiled a new Briefing Note entitled Contracting with Consumers: Key Considerations. It examines such issues as the key terms implied into consumer contracts, remedies available to consumers whose goods do not comply with the terms of sale contract, doorstep regulations (which apply to contracts entered into away from a seller’s place of business) and distance selling regulations (for mail order, telephone, SMS and online orders). The Briefing Note also looks at the fairness test, seller obligations regarding price, plus various other key considerations.
