There are 2 types of warranties that your rights are based on:
- Express warranties are the promises or statements made by a dealer, his or her salespeople, the manufacturer or other distributor that you rely on when making your purchase decision. These promises or statements can be verbal or written in contracts, on packages, signs or other accompanying product documents. Itís always a good idea to get any verbal promises in writing. If a dispute arises, it is much easier to prove a written statement.
- Implied warranties cover title, quality and fitness for purpose. They apply in every case regardless of whether the dealer promises or says anything. The dealer is not normally responsible for defects that are known to you or disclosed to you before the contract is made. If you are purchasing a used product, and have examined the product before purchase, the dealer would not be responsible for any defects that the examination ought to have revealed.
