Consumer advice

Consumer Advice

We provide an independent mediation service to consumers who have bought unsatisfactory goods or services and have been unable to resolve the matter themselves.

Have you ever

  • bought goods that didn't work? 
  • had a service provided that didn't live up to the promise given?
  • had goods repaired but not returned to you?
  • had work started but not finished?

When you purchase goods or services you receive some protection in law when things go wrong. A brief summary of your rights can be found by selecting the appropriate link opposite.  

More detailed information or assistance with a specific problem can be obtained by contacting Trading Standards or by completing the attached form. Alternatively you can complain about a consumer problem by following the links opposite.
