Title: Commercial
Post by Miss Ahmed on Apr 5th, 2009 at 5:21pm
Hi guys ,

Just wondering if anyone would like to share their ideas on what they think :

"Do you consider a buyer's remedies when faulty goods are supplied to be adequate?"

Whar arguments could you have for this? :-? :-/

If anyone could help that would be brilliant.

Thanks

I think for student questions, the student should show some sort of effort to answer for themself first of all, and then other members would be more than willing to help :)

If you were able to write down what a buyer's remedies are when faulty goods are supplied, that would help with responses.

Presumably this falls under Sale of Goods Act territory, but as a more recent student, you may have more uptodate knowledge, such as the impact of any EU law harmonisation in this area?

The question i am asking , is that if members think it is appropriate (the remedies that are currently available by the Act)? Just needing a few opinions thats all.

No they aren't?

Yeah some would say . It would helpo if you elaborated as to why you think that? I think that's a little obvious!

Hi - dont know if this would help but you could try looking under Trading Standards website it may give you some ideas as to what is and what isnt covered.  Also just as a matter of interest there is a question being asked at the moment on Help and Advice section which is along the same sort of lines about someone with a Harley Davidson motorbike.

Hope this helps a little.

Hi - what the rest of us do is just ignore - it does seem to have the desired effect.  Hope my answer has helped a little but if not am sure that some other members who really do and want to help will be able to give you the answers you need as after all that was all you asked in the first place - some people think they are better than the rest of us for some very strange reason!!

Good Luck

Mo  :)

Mo you sad act. How are students ever going to learn if they are spoon fed things? On another (better) forum that I am a member of, we do not answer student questions without the OP at least making some effort to attempt an answer themselves.

Your answer itself wasn't enlightening.

Title: Re: Commercial
Post by Miss Ahmed on Apr 7th, 2009 at 1:29am
Excuse me, i am not ASKING for answers. Nor am i ASKING for help! I was only wondering what other people might think of this particular subject area. One things for sure...i certainly do not need to be spoon fed.
OP? >:(

Oh and to add, Mo's answer was enlightening from my perspective! Thank you Mo.

I really don't care if the original poster makes an effort to answer the question or not - why should I or anyone else?  What's wrong with someone posting the question and looking for some discussion - if you were in the real world, having a conversation, it would be perfectly acceptable to ask this as a question without having to also give your assessment of the answer at the same time.  

Anyway this other, 'better', forum - what's the address?  I'd like to visit to learn why its so great.

Oh, and on the original topic - seriously, what are the remedies?



Title: Re: Commercial
Post by Miss Ahmed on Apr 7th, 2009 at 3:19pm
The remedies are pretty basic in the sense that the buyer has the right to return the goods in a specified period of time, right of rejection , recission and right of replacement. if obviously all this still does not work in the favour of the buyer, then the buyer has a right to recieve damages in respect for the loss caused by the faulty goods. This is just a basic outline but if you want to have a look in more depth, check out this website.

No - I am certainly not a sad act - but I dont pretend to be an expert unlike the CLOWN who seems to think he is.  But of course did he forget to tell everyone that he is still not fully qualified - you see he gave away all the vital information a number of posts ago  - as several other members including myself were able to ascertain and had a real laugh at his expense through private messages.  

Anyway, the real point here is that since this other site is so-so-so- good - maybe he will leave us and go to his other site or just crawl back under the stone to which he emerged from and leave us all in peace.  As said before - the best remedy for this clown is to ignore and that is what i will do now.

As you said Miss Ahmed all you did was ask for some discussion - no more - no less - and like the other civilised Members we have entered into that very thing - discussion.  

Thank you also for your comments with regards to my posts.  

Mo  :)

That is not a problem Lil Mo  ;) ! Haha this gurls got attitude. Your going to be a great lawyer  ;D

Title: Re: Commercial
Post by Lil Mo on Apr 7th, 2009 at 4:43pm
Hi Miss Ahmed - but sorry to disappoint you , I am not studying to be a lawyer nor am  I a lawyer - just a lay member of the public, who really enjoys the forum - now and again I am able to help people with advice or point them in the right direction.  But I have had a few very positive comments from some of the senior members and obviously very well qualified members, for which i am grateful.  I never claim to be something which I am not - unlike someone else - but there you go. You really should go back over their posts it does make some interesting reading and as I say it does show very clearly what I said earlier about not being fully qualified.  

Of course, the legal profession like every other profession has its bad eggs - but eventually their day will come.  Arrogance really is a sign of weakness and is not becoming.

It is now best to move on and ignore him - and hopefully get back to the main point of discussion about the sale or return of goods.

Have a nice day!

Mo ;) ;)

This site is excellent despite what anyone else says. Posters are a mixture of those seeking help, lawyers who give their time and students who might want to help using what they have learned. Oh, and kind lay people like Lil Mo who cares about others. You get the occasional poster who derides others for no good reason and that shows a basic lack of respect. A little knowledge can be dangerous (see EFP's post under Child Support). Miss Ahmed's question was perfectly legitimate and did not deserve the responses she got from EFP. Yes he is a student and is entitled to try out his skills but he should be careful about his tone. Let's keep this site friendly! If you want to help please do so. Once you are in the real world as a lawyer, mocking a client like this will lose you a lot of business if not your job!!

Sorry to ask, but just our of curiousity. Is (everyonesfavouriterep) a student? ;D

Back to the question...so does anyone have any ideas as to what they think of the remedies that are currently available for consumers?
