Complaints - Code of Practice - Pre-Contract Information

Pre-contract information and what to do if you have a complaint

Consumer Contracts Regulations (CCRS)

The law changed on the 13th June 2014 and consumers are required by law to be provided with pre-contract information.

The main points of CCR's are:-

  • The cooling-off period for goods and services sold by distance or by off-premises selling has been harmonised across the EU to 14 days from date of delivery of the products

  • There are some important exemptions, one of which is for products “made to the consumer’s specification” – this will include such products as made-to-measure windows made to a consumer’s specific requirements; another is for urgent repairs and maintenance when a consumer invites a trader to their home

  • There is a now a  list of pre-contract information which must be provided to consumers before a contract is made, including advising cancellation rights and if a trader belongs to a code of conduct. Failure to provide certain items will give a consumer a cooling-off period of up to 379 days, and the trader would be liable to a fine of up to £5,000
