The Sales of Goods Act 1979 is an Act that regulates the sale of goods that are bought and sold in the US and the binding contract between both parties. The contract of sale states that the transfer of property from a seller to a buyer is completed through a money transaction, known as the price.
Goods must determine a level of satisfactory quality for the price that the consumer is willing to pay, and meeting the description and relevant factors at time of purchase. These factors might include the level of expectation that an item may conjure, for example, second hand goods will provide much less expectation than that of a brand new product which will have a much higher expectation with regards to its quality and will cause concern about expectation if it has a defect.
Goods should be fit for purpose, i.e that they are capable of carrying out the purpose for what they were designed to do. A seller should express the purpose of their goods and has a responsibility to make sure that they attain that state.
The Sale of Goods Act amendment in March 2012 states that if a fault occurs with a product within the first 6 months of purchase, the consumer is entitled to assume that it was sold to them with the defect present. This means that the goods were not of a reasonable standard at the time of purchase and the vendor is in breach of their statutory and contractual obligations, whereby the Act protecting customers through their statutory consumer rights.
Referring back to the original Act of 1979, these consumer rights covers anyone who purchases faulty goods becomes entitled to a free refund(either in full or in part), replacement or repair service, and the onus falls on the retailer to provide this.
