Consumer Sales Guarantees in the European Union
This book fills an important gap in European sales law literature, where sales law is a much-studied object for legal comparatists, while at the same time comprehensive analysis of sales guarantees is largely missing.
The volume constitutes one of the key results of a large-scale research project conducted under the auspices of the Study Group on a European Civil Code and, thus, can be seen as the work underlying the Chapter 6 provisions’ on guarantees of the Principles of European Law on Sales (PELS) and the Draft Common Frame of Reference (DCFR).
The book provides an exhaustive analysis of the legal phenomenon of the consumer guarantee, disclosing the competition law roots of the legislation on it, the effects of the Unfair Contract Terms Directive and the Consumer Sales Directive. Furthermore, it studies the solutions adopted in the Consumer Sales Directive and questions their effectiveness.
