What is an unfair term?

An unfair term is a term in a consumer contract that causes a significant imbalance in the parties’ rights and obligations under the contract, to the detriment of the consumer.

 Transparency is also fundamental to fairness. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 (the Act) requires that a written term in a consumer contract is expressed in plain language and is legible.

The CMA has produced an unfair terms flowchart that aims to provide an ‘at a glance’ simplified overview of the unfair terms provisions in the relevant part of the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
