Here the case study
Tony and Sue are partners in Camera World which sells new and second
equipment. Tony has a credit card agreement made in 2005 in the UK and
Sue is a second
card-holder on Tony’s account.
In September 2009 Tony purchased a brand-new sports car from Cars R Us
at a cost of
Â£18000. The car was to be used by Tony and Sue for both business and
personal use. Two
months after taking delivery of the car Tom was unable to start the
car and he also noticed
that the front leather seat was slightly scratched. He returned the
car to Cars R Us who said
that they would investigate the faults. Three weeks later the car was
returned to Tony.
When Tony asked what the fault had been Cars R Us refused to say and
Tony that the car had been repaired to â€?factory gate’ standard.
Tony also noticed that the
scratches on the seat had not been removed. He therefore decided to
reject the car and
informed Cars R Us of his decision. He was then alerted to a clause in
the signed contract
which stated that â€?refunds will only be considered for goods
returned within 7 days.’
Whilst on holiday in France in August 2009 Sue used the credit card to

priced at Â£200. As Sue
was very busy on her return to the UK she did not examine the cameras
until 3 months later
whereupon she realised that the cameras were not waterproof but only
When she tried to contact Digitex France Ltd she was told that the
company had just gone
into administration due to insolvency.
Tony’s next purchase was for a second hand camcorder which he
purchased from his next
door neighbour, Mike. Mike had just bought a new camcorder and he was pleased to
receive Â£100 from Tony for the camcorder. When Tony tried the
camcorder the following
day he realised that it was not functioning at all.
Ann’s next purchase was in November 2009 when she bought 5 tripods
from Bendy Box
Limited. When she unpacked the tripods 2 weeks later she realised that
the tripods had
been poorly manufactured and 4 of them were in pieces. When she
attempted to return the
tripods to Bendy Box Limited she was alerted to a clause on the back
of the receipt which
stated that â€?liability for breach of the implied terns within the
