If a tailor doesn’t sew a customer’s Christmas dress on time, the customer has the legal right to sue the tailor.
Kweku Attakora Dwomoh, a law lecturer at the University of Professional Studies Law School, asserts that clients can seek redress in court if they felt mistreated by their tailors.
He claimed in an interview with JoyNews that a deadline agreement between a dressmaker and a client is recognized by the law, meaning that if the dressmaker fails to uphold their end of the bargain, the disgruntled client may seek compensation.
These remarks were made by the UPSA law lecturer in response to discussions on buyers’ rights.
He underlined during the aforementioned conversations that buyers have legal rights just like sellers do.
He claims that one of these rights is the right of purchasers to obtain the precise things they bought from sellers.
Regarding consumer rights, he urged the development of pertinent regulations to preserve purchasers’ interests and daily transactions.
“Time of delivery in a contract is a condition. So if I tell you that I want [a dress] on the 24th; even with that there are two points in there.
“The time of the delivery and the purpose. I tell you I need my jacket or my attire for Christmas. I tell you I need it by the 24th.“
You decide to deliver by the 1st. You would have breached that agreement that we had and the buyer is entitled to reject it”, he emphasized.
