This will not affect your statutory rights.Summary of Rights and Remedies According to The Sale of Goods Act 1979 Buyers are entitled to goods of satisfactory quality, taking account of any description, the price and other relevant circumstances. If an item has a fault that is present at the time of sale (sometimes referred to as an "inherent" fault), the consumer can complain once it is discovered.Buyers cannot expect a legal remedy in respect of:
Fair wear and tear: In the case of bats, this would include: Damage to decals through normal play Misuse or accidental damage; In the case of bats, this would include: Any damage caused as a direct result of a collision. Any damage caused by striking the ball with any area other than the front, flat face. Lack of maintenance. If they decide they no longer want the item.Similarly, buyers cannot expect a legal remedy where goods have faults that they knew about before the sale or that should have been evident on reasonable inspection.
if a product that was faulty at the time of sale is returned to the retailer, the buyer is legally entitled to:A full refund, if this is within a reasonable time of the sale ("reasonable time" is not defined in law but as a reasonable guide is considered to be within 4 weeks of receipt of goods – This guideline was advised by ‘Trading Standards’)A reasonable amount of compensationAdditional rights for consumers Alternatively, consumers can choose to request instead:A repair or replacement. The retailer can decline either of these if he can show that they are disproportionately costly in comparison with the alternative. If neither repair nor replacement is realistically possible, consumers can request instead:A partial or full refund, depending on what is reasonable in the circumstances.
It may be the case that a full refund is not the reasonable option because the consumer will have enjoyed some benefit from the goods before the problem appeared. This needs to be taken into account before a reasonable partial refund can be assessed – In the case of bats where their expected life is one season (9 months), any refund offered would take into account the age of the bat based on their expected life. 12.
