Consumer guarentees act

This post is about the consumer guarantees act.

The act was put in place to stop faulty and unfair selling and buying of goods.

The act covers:
  • Goods of a type normally buy for ordinary household or personal use.
  • New and used goods bought on or after 1st April 1994
It does not cover:
  • Goods bought but action of tender
  • Goods bought from a private seller
There are a number of remedies dependent on the situation. Whether the object is broken or not how serious the problem is.

Most of this is from the ministry of consumer affairs.
