Can A Solar System Vendor Be Held Liable For Concealed Defects?

Are you struggling with a defective solar system and wondering if the vendor is liable for concealed defects? As legal experts in consumer rights and product liability, we’re here to shed light on this crucial issue.

Under South African law, the “Implied Warranty Against Latent Defects” plays a pivotal role. This warranty implies that your solar system should be free from any hidden defects at the time of purchase. If such defects exist, the vendor can be held accountable, especially if they were aware of these issues and failed to disclose them.

In cases where latent defects are discovered post-installation, you, as the consumer, have the right to seek legal recourse. This might involve filing a damage claim against the vendor to cover the costs of repairs, replacements, or even a full refund.

It’s essential to gather evidence of the defect and document all communications with the vendor. Legal action can be initiated through a formal notice or a summons, demanding remediation of the issue.
