Warranty of quality and fitness for sold goods
The consumer society is increasingly pushing consumers to buy goods, which they may not have a use for. Whether on the internet, at fairs or at counters, many consumers buy goods on a whim and then end up regretting it.
Right of revocation
The Code of Obligations provides that, under certain conditions, the buyer may revoke his decision within a certain period of time if he regrets his purchase. However, this law only applies in the case of door-to-door sales or direct marketing. What is the way out if the consumer has no right of revocation?
There is a last resort! The Code of Obligations allows the buyer to invoke the warranty of quality and fitness. The consumer will only have the right to ask for the replacement of the item. He will only be able to terminate the sales contract in exceptional circumstances.
