(Continuous report of 2nd quarter of 2016)
(Prague, September 14, 2016) Bazaars and pawnshops are frequently visited by consumers who want to buy or sell used goods. In most cases, consumers don’t assumed that such goods from a bazaar is under claims code. The period for exercising the right from defective performance is the same as in the case of new goods unless the parties agree upon reduction of the claims period up to its half. In the second quarter of 2016, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority carried out inspections of 193 sellers and discovered law infringements in 108 cases, i.e. 56%. In total 117 fines amounting to CZK 255,000 were lawfully imposed. Violations of legal regulations most frequently related to consumer information about the extent, conditions, manner, and place of making a claim, and the obligation to state in the receipt that the product was used or with a defect.
