‘No refund’ and other signs
Signs that state ‘no refunds’ are unlawful, because they imply it is not possible to get a refund under any circumstance – even when there is a major problem with the service.
For the same reason, the following signs are also unlawful:
Signs that state ‘No refunds will be given if you have simply changed your mind’ are acceptable.
What if a buyer changes their mind?
You do not have to give a refund when a buyer simply changes their mind about the service.
But you can have a policy to offer a refund or credit note when this happens. If so, you must abide by this policy.
Who has to fix a problem with a service?
When service fail to meet a guarantee, the buyer has a right to a remedy – an attempt to put the situation right. Common remedies include repair, replacement and refund.
As a supplier, you must give a remedy when your services are not provided:
- with due care and skill
- which are fit for any specified purpose
- within a reasonable time (when no time is set)
Whether you offer a repair, refund or other remedy depends on whether the problem is:
- major – it cannot be fixed or too difficult to fix
- minor – it can usually be put right.
BUYER guarantees apply to both.
When services fail to meet a BUYER guarantee, the BUYER can also claim for consequential losses – compensation for costs to the BUYER in time and money because something went wrong with the services.
