    Is there an equivalent of the UK Sale of Goods Act here? You know the one about goods purchased being "fit for purpose"?

    SA is covered by the Fair Trading Act 1987 (South Australian Legislation)


    You can read about consumer protection at: OCBA - Consumer protection


    You have a consumer right to:


    • honest and accurate information to help you decide which goods or services to purchase


    • a fair and reasonable contract when you purchase goods and services


    • goods and services that are:

        • of merchantable quality
        • free from faults or defects
        • fit for the purpose,
        • and match the description or sample given.




    • redress if you have a problem with something you have bought. Possible remedies include a refund, repair, replacement or resupply of services


    • claim compensation where you suffer a loss caused by a product or service.
