Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
What would you like to ask about this?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. Obviously I cannot comment on what is a good deal for an inverter as this is not so much a legal question and it is more a consumer issue. It is not uncommon for traders to charge more than what something cost, after all that is how they make their profit. Generally, they can charge whatever they want as long as they were clear from the outset about what you are getting and were not deliberately misled into believing you have to pay that amount (i.e. saying that you won’t get it cheaper anywhere else, that this is the standard price everywhere and so on).
You do not have to pay but you do run the risk of them making a claim in court. As this will go to the Small Claims Court, it is not a high risk thing for you because even if you lose you will not have to pay their legal costs as each ide pays their own. So you can try your luck if you want and if they claim it would be up to them to prove that this was a reasonable price.
Does this answer your query?
All the best
