Clarification, simplification and modernisation of the consumer guarantee framework

ARITA’s submission principally focuses on Chapter 4: Access to consumer guarantees for goods sold at auction.

ARITA holds significant concerns about the impact of possible changes to consumer guarantees for goods sold at auction.  

As insolvency practitioners, our members frequently use auctions as a cost-effective and efficient means of disposing of assets in insolvency appointments. Increasingly our members are taking advantage of on-line auctions, via platforms offered by auction houses, as a means of accessing a wider potential audience. We disagree with the implementation of any changes that would limit the effectiveness of this platform.
