This letter may be used by or on behalf of a purchaser who is seeking a resolution in relation to one or more faulty products that the purchaser has purchased.

The letter may be adapted in a number of ways. It may be sent from the person who placed the order. Alternatively, it may be sent by somebody on behalf of the person that placed the order (such as a parent or coworker).

The letter allows the purchaser to provide details about the order, to enable the seller to track it down.

So if you or somebody you know has purchased a faulty product, use this template to quickly and easily assert your rights and to obtain a repair, replacement, refund, or any other resolution you desire.


How to use this document

If evidence is being provided in connection with this matter (such as a copy of any proof of payment, or copies of emails or other correspondence between the seller and the purchaser), make sure they are attached with the letter. Keep a copy of the letter and the attachments for your records.

Once the letter has been completed and any relevant evidence is attached, simply deliver the letter and attachments (if applicable) to the organisation from which the repair, replacement or refund is being requested.


Applicable Law

Many consumer issues are dealt with at the national level under the Australian Consumer Law which is contained in Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Commonwealth). In particular, this legislation provides a number of consumer guarantees (which are minimum standards that sellers must meet).

In many cases, various pieces of legislation at the state or territory level may also apply. This may include legislation in relation to consumer affairs, sales of goods, and industry-specific legislation (for example health complaints legislation, or telecommunications industry legislation).

In addition, general principles of contract law, as provided by the common law, may also apply.
