Spending habits may change, but your rights remain the same!

COVID-19 is impacting household budgets in ways no one could’ve predicted. For many of us, this means drastically cutting back on spending and weighing up the quality of goods and services with the cost.

Over the past few years, South African consumers have already been adjusting spending habits as a result of salaries increasing minimally, the price of goods and services rising rapidly and fears for personal safety. Research by Santander confirms that we’ve been cautious when it comes to finances, cocooning a lot more, entertaining ourselves at home rather than in shopping malls, clubs, restaurants and other establishments. What’s more, we’ve increasingly preferred inexpensive experiences over material goods, like going to the beach, listening to music or watching sports on TV.

Many of us are worried about the personal and financial implications of the lockdown restrictions, and looking beyond the pandemic, it’s unlikely that we’ll loosen our purse strings soon. We simply cannot afford shoddy service, bad quality products, or broken promises. Thankfully, the law protects our consumer rights.

Be empowered by your consumer rights!

Protecting and empowering consumers goes a long way in maintaining consumer confidence, and ultimately, mitigating the negative socio-economic impact of the pandemic. Even though it may be more challenging to fulfil during the lockdown, suppliers of goods and services still have legal obligations that haven’t changed. Being clued up on our consumer rights means we can safeguard ourselves against companies that take advantage of the national disaster by seeking redress. LAW FOR ALL is your corner with insightful and powerful legal advice and information.
