"Longman Parctice Notes" are designed for quick reference to provide basic, practical information on mainstream legal topics. "Consumer Law" leads you through the procedures involved from establishing whether a client has a genuine case through to advising on the best method of obtaining a remedy and, where necessary, taking a case to court. Common problems that occur in contract and tort are closely examined, such as misrepresentaion, latent defects, negligence and economic loss. The statute and case law pertaining to each problem area is considered, as are the legal obligations imposed by the Consumer Protection Act 1987. Methods of obtaining a remedy without recourse to litigation are also examined, such as the ABTA arbitration scheme. Where litigation is necessary this book steers you through all the processes - whom to sue - in which court - and provides a set of precedents setting out particulars of the claim and different types of defence. Consumer credit agreements and creditor's rights, how to enforce them and the procedures involved in any litigation are systematically covered, as are the defences available to suppliers with regard to consumer safety, false price indications and misleading trade descriptions.
