“Bought a tablet, and on the 10th day it broke. What to pay attention when I take it in for repair?” — Igor Melnichuk, Kiev.

Meets Basil SEGUIN, a lawyer in the sphere of protection of the rights of citizens:

“Upon delivery of the goods, the seller shall give the goods the same brand and model for temporary replacement during repair, or he will have to pay you a penalty of 1% of the value of the goods per every day of delay in the implementation requirements (the list of goods for temporary replacement specified in the CMU Resolution from 19.03.1994, №1

When signing documents on delivery of the goods for warranty service
pay attention to their content. For example, it is frequently observed that the repair can last more than 14 days, and repairs will begin when the goods are delivered to the service center, and many other rules, written in favour of the seller. In fact, for the repair of the goods shall be considered accepted from the moment of its delivery. So feel free to cross out rules relating to extension of the period of repair (should get a penalty of 1% for each day of delay).
