    Default Advice about warenties

    I work in a small shop in northumberland,

    We have a number of second hand laptops which we wish to start selling. Problem is, we are unable to find out legally what if any gaurentee/warrenty we have to give legally? I've rang trading standards and there advice is none but the customer still has certain come backs..

    Basically there saying they dont know, so not been much help and we have other £1000 locked up in laptops which we need to shift, as a small bussiness its a vital revenue stream, altho we wish to operate within the law as we are honest and stright up.

    Any body who has any knowledge at all is welcome to comment.

    Thanks

    just make up a period you are happy with, say 7 days, 28 days or whatever.

    not sure where the law stands on 2nd hand equipment.

    6 years, wtf.

    the sales of goods act says something like things have to last a reasonable amount of time.

    so a 50p yo yo might not be expected to last too long but a £1200 macbook should be expected to last a while.

    i would only offer something like 7 days assuming these are cheap laptops and state its only on hardware or something, you cant be responsible for what rubbish the new owner might isntall/download/click on

    this is just my opinion

    You don't have to give any warranty if you don't want.
