Hi!

I have a problem question in contract law as to the application of the Customer Rights Act 2015.
I have been searching everywhere but with no luck. If a voluntary body of 3 volunteers that performs recitals in elderly people houses and churches buys an second-hand printer from an accountancy firm, can it have a protection under the Customer Rights Act 2015? Or is the voluntary body considered a business?
I am not sure which act would have the application regarding the unfair terms, whether it would be the CRA 2015 or UCTA 1977

Is the invoice made out to a business or a private individual?

Honestly, looking into the question there is just an individual signing the document of sale on behalf of the voluntary body he represents. There is nothing else mentioned that could help. :c

Yeah haha, I thought i would choose this question cause it looked easy. I solved the issue of incorporation, construction and now I'm stuck with this one 😂 guess i found an answer, CRA contains a provision that it applies only to individuals, groups of local residents are not subject to it.

If you’re on the group chat give me a shout, I kind of skipped over construction because I thought we would need more information as to the Actual words used .. I just briefly mentioned the existence of contra proferentem but said that the CRA was to be used now

Yeah, it only says that it does not apply to small businesses and legal organisations. I'm struggling to figure it out whether a voluntary body is a business if it operates non-profit🙄

It usually is, yes. Fair warning, IANAL, but I would say that the CRA does NOT apply in this case. If the invoice is made out to the voluntary organisation, it was not a purchase by an individual.

What are the definitions of consumer and trader?
