There have been a number of further recent complaints about "Rogue" workmen in the Lisburn area.

With this in mind, the following details have been circulated on the CSN system, to notify local consumers about their "rights" when dealing with many of these individuals.

Services must be carried out with:

1 Reasonable care and skill
2 Reasonable Price
3 Within a reasonable time
The definition of reasonable is that of the 'man on the street'. The service need not be carried out to perfection or the highest standard. However the price paid for the service would be a determining factor in defining 'reasonable'.

Goods must be:

1 As described
2 Off a satisfactory quality
3 Fit for the purpose that they are normally used for and fit for the purpose that the customer has stated.
Like the definition of reasonable in services, satisfactory quality does not require goods to be of the highest Standard. How the goods are described and the price set the bar with regard to the quality.
If goods or services do not meet these terms then the customer can seek redress through the court system.
If the goods or services cost less than £2000 then the customer has the option of making use of the Small claims court.

Consumer Protection (Cancellation of contracts concluded away from business premises) Regulations 1987 AKA 'The Doorstep Selling Regulations' allows the consumer
1 A seven day cooling off period when unsolicited goods and services
are sold at the door.
2 The goods or services must have cost £35 or more.
3 These rights do not apply to the supply of food, drink or other goods intended for current consumption and supplied by regular rounds men. They do not apply to perishable goods or goods made to order. They also do not apply to the sale of insurance or for the construction or extension of a building.
4 The trader must supply the consumer with a notice of his / her
cancellation rights.
5 The contract cannot be enforced against the consumer if this notice is not given.
6 Failure to provide notice of cancellation rights is a criminal
offence.
7 If the consumer cancels (this must be done in writing) they are not responsible for the transport of returned goods but can wait for the trader to collect them.
