Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone knows if I can find a written statement anywhere that states that as a consumer, under UK law, I have a right to shop around for the best deal on goods and services.

 

I have spent a couple of hours looking around online but cannot find a statement like this anywhere.

 

Any help anyone can give would be very much appreciated :)

 

Thanks in advance.

Have moved your thread to General Consumer Issues, I think you might attract more attention there.

 

You need do nothing, this is purely an administrative move.

TBH, I am not sure that there would be any legislation for your question - surely it is a given that you have the right to shop around? Can you share the reason for this question ?

You'll need to give more information about the situation you have in mind. Hard to comment otherwise.

 

No law is needed to say you can shop around if you are free to shop around. But if you are not free to shop around - eg because you've entered into an agreement or contract only to buy from a specified supplier - there's also no general law that says you can break that agreement and buy from somewhere cheaper. Whether any such agreement is legal and binding on you will depend on the specific circumstances, every case will be different.

 

If that's what lies behind your question.

If the market is regulated, then speak to the appropriate regulators help line. If you are being stopped from shopping around, then you need to know whether this is legal or not.


We could do with some help from you.

You can do anything you want, provided that there is no law prohibiting it and providing that you are not committing a civil wrong or breaching a contract. You don't need a law to tell you this - basically, you are free to do something unless it is prohibited.

 

 

As others have said you will need to give us a little bit of context if you want to receive useful input.
