Consumer Sales Law: The Law Relating to Consumer Sales and Financing of Goods

Front Cover
Routledge, Jun 2, 2009 - Law - 1152 pages

Fully updated and revised, this comprehensive and informative textbook provides readers with an overview of current consumer sales law and equips them with a view of how this fast-changing subject has, and will continue to develop through the inclusion of new reform proposals.

This book analyzes the interaction of consumer sales law with politics, the appeal of consumer protection to politicians and the influence of the European Union and the EU Directives. It also discusses the removal of consumer sales law from its traditional realm of legal professionals to consumer and debt advisors and public officials with the power to seek injunctions to protect consumers. In addition to this, it:

  • fully integrates both the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive 2005 and the Consumer Credit Act 2006 into the basic 1974 Act
  • explains how the sale of Goods Act 1979 has been modified by the 1999 Directive
  • combines the public protection of consumers under the Enterprise Act 2002 (e.g. Office of Fair Trading)
  • is supplemented by comprehensive e-updates on its Companion Website, keeping the content current between editions.

Written by an author with forty years experience of teaching sales and finance law to undergraduates, this textbook is an essential tool for all undergraduates studying commercial and consumer sales law.
