Ok Guys I know this is not a sales thread and if i'm over stepping my mark please delete this thread or move it to a more appropriate place (maybe even think of adding it to the trading rules Q&A section ??) Under UK law when you resell a electrical item (may also include other items but I know it absolutely covers electrical items as I heard it from a well known satellite retailers mouth him self). When you resell say a satellite receiver or TV or games console etc etc etc etc and you state it STILL HAS xxxxxx days, weeks, months warranty etc be very careful. I say this because one you resell your item the warranty that you originally had is now for all intents and purposes null and void unless the original trader CHOOSES (read that bit carefully) chooses to honor the remainder of the warranty, because he/she can lawfully refuse to honor any warranty claims no matter how long is left of the warranty unless it comes directly from the person they originally sold the item to. Now I am not saying any trader would do this as frankly it would ruin their reputation instantly but they have the law on their side and if they CHOOSE (notice that word again). If they choose to they can lawfully decline any warranty claims unless it comes from the person they sold the item to in the first place. Just putting it out there because none of the so called big retailers will openly tell you this and if you do sell a satellite receiver for example and tell the buyer it still has warranty and they have to make a warranty claim not only could they be denied the claim but they could in turn take you to the small claims court for false advertising or you could incur the repair / replacement costs. (if there dickish enough). Sermon over.
