Is the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 still valid?
Also know, is the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 still in force?
The Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 remains in force in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, however only Part IA of the Act, which creates provisions analogous to Part I of the Act, and Part III, which deals with the Act's commencement etc., apply to Scotland.
Then, what is the Goods and Services Act?
The Supply of Goods And Services Act (SGSA) 1982 requires that service providers carry out work, with reasonable care and skill, in a reasonable time (where a definite completion date was not agreed) and at a reasonable price (where a fixed price was not set in advance).
Under the Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act 1980, anything you buy from a retailer must be: He agrees to provide certain goods to you for a certain price. If your purchase turns out to be faulty, the retailer, not the manufacturer, is responsible to you and must sort out your complaint.
