Consumer Guarantees and Your Rights Under the Australian Consumer Law
Under the Australian Consumer Law, you have guaranteed legal rights for goods and services you purchase. These are called consumer guarantees. All goods sold in Australia come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
There are nine consumer guarantees that apply to goods you purchase:
Express warranties will be honoured
Fit for a particular purpose
Match the sample or demonstration model
Title to the goods
Undisturbed possession of the goods
No undisclosed securities on the goods
Spare parts and repair facilities will be available for a reasonable time after purchase
Consumer guarantees cannot be excluded and are in addition to any extended warranty you purchase or any voluntary warranty (warranty against defects) you are given. However there may be circumstances where you are not entitled to a remedy.
