NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTIES

Every year, New Jersey consumers spend lots of money buying furniture from New Jersey big box stores.  Bedroom sets, dining room sets, living room sets, home office furniture, recliners and mattresses can cost thousands of dollars and you should get the quality you are paying for.  However, home furniture is often a source of problems for New Jersey consumers.  Home furniture can cost thousands of dollars but often fail to work and you can’t get the assistance you need to get them fixed. What happens if you buy a piece of furniture in New Jersey from a New Jersey big box store and also buy the extended warranty or service contract for the furniture and the furniture fails to work and can’t be fixed?   Did you buy furniture from a New Jersey big box store and it stopped working during the warranty period?  The Law Office of Paul DePetris helps New Jersey furniture buyers who buy defective furniture in New Jersey.   Don’t accept defective furniture from New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturers. 

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY EXPRESS WARRANTY UNDER NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTY

LAW?  

A New Jersey express warranty is:

  • any description of New Jersey furniture;
  • that New Jersey furniture meets that description; and
  • which is made part of the basis of a New Jersey consumer’s and New Jersey seller or New Jersey furniture buyer and manufacturer’s bargain; or
  • any sample or model which is made part of the basis of a New Jersey consumer’s and New Jersey seller or New Jersey furniture buyer and manufacturer’s bargain;
  • creates a New Jersey express warranty that New Jersey furniture shall meet the sample or model’s description.

For a New Jersey express warranty to be created, it is not necessary for the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer to use formal words such as ‘warranty’ or ‘guarantee’ or that the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer have a specific intention to make a New Jersey furniture warranty.  However, if a New Jersey seller merely makes a representation about the value of New Jersey furniture or a statement claiming to be merely the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s opinion or recommendation about New Jersey furniture, such representations or statements do not create a New Jersey express warranty. 

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF EXPRESS WARRANTY LAWSUIT UNDER NEW JERSEY

WARRANTY LAW?

A New Jersey breach of warranty requires a New Jersey furniture buyer or a person with a right to enforce a New Jersey furniture warranty (whether a New Jersey consumer or business) to prove that:

  • The New Jersey consumer or other person was entitled to entered into a contract with a New Jersey seller to purchase New Jersey furniture provided with a New Jersey furniture warranty.
  • The New Jersey consumer did what the New Jersey furniture warranty required them to do to do.
  • The New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant issuing the New Jersey furniture warranty (usually, either New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer) did not do what the New Jersey furniture warranty required them to do, thereby breaching the New Jersey furniture warranty; 
  • The New Jersey breach of warranty was material – not something trivial; and
  • The New Jersey breach of warranty caused the New Jersey consumer to suffer a loss.

In a New Jersey breach of a New Jersey express warranty lawsuit, the New Jersey consumer lawsuits that New Jersey furniture did not meet the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s factual lawsuits or promises.  Any factual lawsuits or promises that New Jersey seller makes to the New Jersey consumer about New Jersey furniture offered for sale and that become part of the basis of the New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants’ bargain create a New Jersey express warranty that New Jersey furniture would meet the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s factual lawsuits or promises. 

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF WARRANTY UNDER NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTY LAW?

New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits involve New Jersey furniture, parts or labor that were sold with the furniture.  Usually, the lawsuit is one where a New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer makes repeated repairs to your New Jersey furniture under the New Jersey furniture warranty for the same problem but couldn’t fix it.    One such law that may help you get relief from such a problem is the Magnuson-Moss Warranty-Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act (the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act).  Under the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, to recover money damages, the following minimum requirements must be met:

  • New Jersey furniture must be a new or used “consumer product” distributed in commerce and normally used for personal, family, or household purposes.
  • A written warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract was provided with the product.
  • You must be a “consumer'' -- a New Jersey consumer (other than for purposes of resale) of New Jersey furniture or other consumer product, a person to whom New Jersey furniture was transferred during the duration of an implied or written warranty (or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract) applicable to New Jersey furniture, or any other person entitled by the terms of such New Jersey furniture warranty (or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract) or under applicable State law to enforce against the warrantor (or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contractor) the obligations of the New Jersey furniture warranty (or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract).
  • The issuer of the New Jersey furniture warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract failed to comply with the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act or failed to honor the terms of its warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract.

 

The New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act covers most consumer products sold or leased with a New Jersey furniture warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract and that is normally used for personal, family or household purposes, such as New Jersey furniture, mobile homes, computers, appliances, agricultural products, heating and air conditioning systems, plumbing components, etc.   Many services are excluded under the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act and often the question of whether a New Jersey furniture warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract is regulated by the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act is for the New Jersey courts to decide.

 

From New Jersey furniture buyer’s standpoint the very purpose of the New Jersey furniture warranty is to provide goods that conform to the contract and do so in an appropriate time.  If New Jersey furniture, boat or other product undergoes repairs under a New Jersey furniture warranty by its manufacturer or New Jersey seller for a defect and they cannot fix the defect in a reasonable period of time, the New Jersey consumer may lose the substantial benefit of the New Jersey consumer’s purchase and that New Jersey furniture buyer may be entitled to seek damages against the offending New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant.

WHAT IS THE NEW JERSEY SUBSTANTIAL IMPAIRMENT TEST IN NEW JEREY BREACH OF WARRANTY LAWSUITS?

In New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits, the threshold test for whether a New Jersey consumer can reject New Jersey furniture and seek money damages is whether the New Jersey furniture’s defect substantially impairs the value of the goods to the buyer.  Under New Jersey substantial impairment test, whether a defect or nonconformity substantially impairs the use or value of the subject vehicle is not measured by a purely objective standard.  Instead, when making such a determination, the factfinder must consider the viewpoint of the buyer and the buyer’s circumstances and decide whether a reasonable person in the buyer’s position would have believed that the defects or nonconformities substantially impaired the New Jersey furniture’s value.  Accordingly, the New Jersey substantial impairment test is a combination of a subjective and objective test rather than merely an objective one.  The mixed subjective/objective test allows the factfinder to consider a New Jersey consumer’s reasonably shaken confidence in the New Jersey furniture as a factor in determining if the New Jersey substantial impairment test is met.  The standard is subjective or personal in the sense that the facts must be examined in the viewpoint of the buyer and her circumstances but the standard is objective in the sense that the criteria is what a reasonable person in the buyer’s position would have believed.  Under New Jersey furniture warranty law, a New Jersey furniture, boat or other product’s value is substantially impaired if its defects affect its value in some serious way, such as by reducing its resale value.  In that situation, the New Jersey substantial impairment is met.

 

WHAT IS THE NEW JERSEY SHAKEN CONFIDENCE TEST IN NEW JEREY BREACH OF WARRANTY LAWSUITS?

When deciding whether a New Jersey furniture’s value is substantially impaired by its defects or whether a New Jersey boat or other product’s value is substantially impaired by its defects, an important factor is whether the defect “shakes the buyer’s confidence” in the goods.   For example, under the New Jersey shaken confidence test, a New Jersey furniture’s value meets the New Jersey substantially impairment test where its nonconformity causes a loss of the buyer’s confidence in the New Jersey furniture.  For example, the purchase of new furniture a major investment rationalized by the peace of mind that flows from its dependability and safety.  Once the purchaser’s faith has been shaken, under New Jersey shaken confidence test, the New Jersey furniture loses not only its real value in their eyes, but it becomes an instrument whose integrity is substantially impaired and whose operation is fraught with apprehension.  In that situation, the New Jersey shaken confidence test is successfully met if the New Jersey judge or New Jersey jury deciding your New Jersey furniture warranty lawsuit agrees with the New Jersey consumer.

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY UNDER NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTY LAW?

Under the New Jersey implied warranty of merchantability, New Jersey furniture must be reasonably fit for the general purpose for which it is manufactured and sold." Merchantability means "that the article sold should be of the general kind described and reasonably fit for the general purpose for which it should have been sold."  For example, New Jersey furniture should be able to be safely used in the home.  When a manufacturer of a product, such as New Jersey furniture, in the stream of trade and promotes its purchase by New Jersey consumers, a New Jersey implied warranty that it is reasonably suitable for use as a New Jersey furniture accompanies it into the hands of the ultimate New Jersey furniture buyer from the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer. 

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE UNDER NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTY LAW?

Under the New Jersey implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose, a New Jersey implied warranty that New Jersey furniture is fit for a particular purpose arises when:

  • New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants enter into a contract for the New Jersey sale of New Jersey furniture
  • the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer knows or should know that the New Jersey consumer requires New Jersey furniture for a particular purpose; and
  • the New Jersey consumer is relying on the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s skill or judgment to pick or provide suitable goods,

 

For a New Jersey implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose to exist, the New Jersey consumer must actually rely on the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s skill or judgment rather than the New Jersey consumer relying on their own skill or judgment in buying New Jersey furniture.  To determine this issue, the New Jersey judge or New Jersey jury deciding a New Jersey implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose lawsuit considers the following:

  • all the facts and circumstances surrounding the New Jersey sale - both what was said and what was done by the New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants, including, any reference to a particular trade or brand name). 
  • whether under all of the facts and circumstances existing at the time of the New Jersey sale, the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer new or should have known that the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer required New Jersey furniture for a particular purpose and was relying on defendant’s skill, or judgment.  The New Jersey consumer does not have to specifically state their purpose to the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer; it is enough that the circumstances surrounding the New Jersey sale gave the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer reason to know of the New Jersey consumer’s purpose and that the New Jersey consumer was relying upon the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s skill or judgment.
  • whether New Jersey furniture was actually fit for that purpose. 
  • whether the New Jersey consumer gave the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer notice of that fact to the New Jersey defendant within a reasonable time after they discovered or should have discovered that New Jersey furniture was unfit for the particular purpose.  When plaintiff should have discovered the defect depends upon all the facts and circumstances, including the nature of the defect, the time when New Jersey furniture was put in use and whether the defect was discoverable by customary and reasonable inspections.  The New Jersey consumer’s notice is sufficient if it informs the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer that the New Jersey consumer lawsuited that New Jersey furniture was defective. 

 

WHAT MUST A NEW JERSEY CONSUMER DO BEFORE CLAIMING THAT A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF EXPRESS WARRANTY OCCURRED UNDER NEW JERSEY LAW?

If New Jersey furniture does not meet that New Jersey express warranty, the New Jersey consumer must then give the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer notice of that fact within a reasonable time after the New Jersey consumer discovered or should have discovered that New Jersey furniture did not meet the New Jersey express warranty.  When the New Jersey consumer should have discovered that New Jersey furniture did not meet the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s factual lawsuits or promises depends on all the facts and circumstances, including the nature of the defect, the time when New Jersey furniture was put in use and whether the nonconformity was discoverable by customary and reasonable inspections.  The New Jersey consumer’s notice to a New Jersey seller of a defect is normally sufficient if it informs the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer that the New Jersey consumer lawsuited that New Jersey furniture was defective.    If the New Jersey consumer gives the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer this notice in a reasonable time after the New Jersey consumer discovered or should have discovered the defect, then the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer committed a New Jersey breach of express warranty and is responsible for paying the damages that the New Jersey breach of express warranty caused the New Jersey consumer to suffer.

                       

 

WHAT OTHER LAWS PROTECT NEW JERSEY CONSUMERS WITH NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTIES?

The Magnuson-Moss Federal Warranty-Trade Improvement Act (Federal Warranty Act) authorizes consumers to suit for damages for a New Jersey breach of certain warranties, including express and implied warranties, arising under New Jersey law in connection with the New Jersey sale by a supplier of a New Jersey consumer product.   The Federal Warranty Law offers consumers a basis in federal law for recovering damages.  Under the Federal Warranty Law, a New Jersey consumer may bring an action against a "supplier, warrantor, or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contractor" on any "written guarantee, New Jersey implied warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract."   Those successful under the Federal Warranty Law may recover their reasonable New Jersey attorney’s fees and New Jersey court costs.

 

NEW JERSEY FURNITURE EXTENDED WARRANTIES AND NEW JERSEY FURNITURE SERVICE CONTRACTS

New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees.  Most New Jersey Court employees are not trained New Jersey attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you.  Working at the New Jersey Court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

 

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY COURT?

The New Jersey Court usually provides certain types of New Jersey Court legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful.  However, beware relying on New Jersey Court forms provided by the New Jersey Court – the New Jersey Court forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey lawsuits often are much more complex than they first appear to be.   There is simply no substitute for a competent New Jersey attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey lawsuits.  New Jersey Court forms don’t talk and New Jersey Court forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey lawsuit.  Each New Jersey lawsuit has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges.   If you can afford a competent New Jersey attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey Court paperwork for you. 

 

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY LAWSUIT MYSELF?

  • New Jersey Court fees often change
  • New Jersey Court rules often change
  • New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees
  • New Jersey Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in Court
  • each New Jersey lawsuit has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
  • it is very common for New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Court complaints that result in the New Jersey Court complaints or answers to New Jersey Court complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey Court after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.  
  • it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey lawsuit. 
  • a Court has the power to punish unprepared New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants, such as by throwing their New Jersey lawsuit out of Court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Court trial. 
  • New Jersey has many published lawsuits, laws, regulations, Court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Court trial. 
  • it is very common for Courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Court trial that the person themselves never prepared.  Often New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants stumble into New Jersey Court with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a New Jersey Court judge tell the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants that it is not going to even consider such items or documents. 
  • without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Court.  Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Court trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to Court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published lawsuits. 
  • you cannot show up at the New Jersey Court expecting the judge hearing New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit to explain Court rules, evidence rules, Court procedure or the details of the law that applies to New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit.  The judge hearing New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit is not permitted to give you legal advice.

NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTIES

Every year, New Jersey consumers spend lots of money buying furniture from New Jersey big box stores.  Bedroom sets, dining room sets, living room sets, home office furniture, recliners and mattresses can cost thousands of dollars and you should get the quality you are paying for.  However, home furniture is often a source of problems for New Jersey consumers.  Home furniture can cost thousands of dollars but often fail to work and you can’t get the assistance you need to get them fixed. What happens if you buy a piece of furniture in New Jersey from a New Jersey big box store and also buy the extended warranty or service contract for the furniture and the furniture fails to work and can’t be fixed?   Did you buy furniture from a New Jersey big box store and it stopped working during the warranty period?  The Law Office of Paul DePetris helps New Jersey furniture buyers who buy defective furniture in New Jersey.   Don’t accept defective furniture from New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturers. 

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY EXPRESS WARRANTY UNDER NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTY

LAW?  

A New Jersey express warranty is:

  • any description of New Jersey furniture;

  • that New Jersey furniture meets that description; and

  • which is made part of the basis of a New Jersey consumer’s and New Jersey seller or New Jersey furniture buyer and manufacturer’s bargain; or

  • any sample or model which is made part of the basis of a New Jersey consumer’s and New Jersey seller or New Jersey furniture buyer and manufacturer’s bargain;

  • creates a New Jersey express warranty that New Jersey furniture shall meet the sample or model’s description.

For a New Jersey express warranty to be created, it is not necessary for the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer to use formal words such as ‘warranty’ or ‘guarantee’ or that the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer have a specific intention to make a New Jersey furniture warranty.  However, if a New Jersey seller merely makes a representation about the value of New Jersey furniture or a statement claiming to be merely the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s opinion or recommendation about New Jersey furniture, such representations or statements do not create a New Jersey express warranty. 

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF EXPRESS WARRANTY LAWSUIT UNDER NEW JERSEY

WARRANTY LAW?

A New Jersey breach of warranty requires a New Jersey furniture buyer or a person with a right to enforce a New Jersey furniture warranty (whether a New Jersey consumer or business) to prove that:

  • The New Jersey consumer or other person was entitled to entered into a contract with a New Jersey seller to purchase New Jersey furniture provided with a New Jersey furniture warranty.

  • The New Jersey consumer did what the New Jersey furniture warranty required them to do to do.

  • The New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant issuing the New Jersey furniture warranty (usually, either New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer) did not do what the New Jersey furniture warranty required them to do, thereby breaching the New Jersey furniture warranty; 

  • The New Jersey breach of warranty was material – not something trivial; and

  • The New Jersey breach of warranty caused the New Jersey consumer to suffer a loss.

In a New Jersey breach of a New Jersey express warranty lawsuit, the New Jersey consumer lawsuits that New Jersey furniture did not meet the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s factual lawsuits or promises.  Any factual lawsuits or promises that New Jersey seller makes to the New Jersey consumer about New Jersey furniture offered for sale and that become part of the basis of the New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants’ bargain create a New Jersey express warranty that New Jersey furniture would meet the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s factual lawsuits or promises. 

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF WARRANTY UNDER NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTY LAW?

New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits involve New Jersey furniture, parts or labor that were sold with the furniture.  Usually, the lawsuit is one where a New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer makes repeated repairs to your New Jersey furniture under the New Jersey furniture warranty for the same problem but couldn’t fix it.    One such law that may help you get relief from such a problem is the Magnuson-Moss Warranty-Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act (the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act).  Under the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, to recover money damages, the following minimum requirements must be met:

  • New Jersey furniture must be a new or used “consumer product” distributed in commerce and normally used for personal, family, or household purposes.

  • A written warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract was provided with the product.

  • You must be a “consumer'' -- a New Jersey consumer (other than for purposes of resale) of New Jersey furniture or other consumer product, a person to whom New Jersey furniture was transferred during the duration of an implied or written warranty (or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract) applicable to New Jersey furniture, or any other person entitled by the terms of such New Jersey furniture warranty (or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract) or under applicable State law to enforce against the warrantor (or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contractor) the obligations of the New Jersey furniture warranty (or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract).

  • The issuer of the New Jersey furniture warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract failed to comply with the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act or failed to honor the terms of its warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract.

 

The New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act covers most consumer products sold or leased with a New Jersey furniture warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract and that is normally used for personal, family or household purposes, such as New Jersey furniture, mobile homes, computers, appliances, agricultural products, heating and air conditioning systems, plumbing components, etc.   Many services are excluded under the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act and often the question of whether a New Jersey furniture warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract is regulated by the New Jersey Federal lemon law, also known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act is for the New Jersey courts to decide.

 

From New Jersey furniture buyer’s standpoint the very purpose of the New Jersey furniture warranty is to provide goods that conform to the contract and do so in an appropriate time.  If New Jersey furniture, boat or other product undergoes repairs under a New Jersey furniture warranty by its manufacturer or New Jersey seller for a defect and they cannot fix the defect in a reasonable period of time, the New Jersey consumer may lose the substantial benefit of the New Jersey consumer’s purchase and that New Jersey furniture buyer may be entitled to seek damages against the offending New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant.

WHAT IS THE NEW JERSEY SUBSTANTIAL IMPAIRMENT TEST IN NEW JEREY BREACH OF WARRANTY LAWSUITS?

In New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits, the threshold test for whether a New Jersey consumer can reject New Jersey furniture and seek money damages is whether the New Jersey furniture’s defect substantially impairs the value of the goods to the buyer.  Under New Jersey substantial impairment test, whether a defect or nonconformity substantially impairs the use or value of the subject vehicle is not measured by a purely objective standard.  Instead, when making such a determination, the factfinder must consider the viewpoint of the buyer and the buyer’s circumstances and decide whether a reasonable person in the buyer’s position would have believed that the defects or nonconformities substantially impaired the New Jersey furniture’s value.  Accordingly, the New Jersey substantial impairment test is a combination of a subjective and objective test rather than merely an objective one.  The mixed subjective/objective test allows the factfinder to consider a New Jersey consumer’s reasonably shaken confidence in the New Jersey furniture as a factor in determining if the New Jersey substantial impairment test is met.  The standard is subjective or personal in the sense that the facts must be examined in the viewpoint of the buyer and her circumstances but the standard is objective in the sense that the criteria is what a reasonable person in the buyer’s position would have believed.  Under New Jersey furniture warranty law, a New Jersey furniture, boat or other product’s value is substantially impaired if its defects affect its value in some serious way, such as by reducing its resale value.  In that situation, the New Jersey substantial impairment is met.

 

WHAT IS THE NEW JERSEY SHAKEN CONFIDENCE TEST IN NEW JEREY BREACH OF WARRANTY LAWSUITS?

When deciding whether a New Jersey furniture’s value is substantially impaired by its defects or whether a New Jersey boat or other product’s value is substantially impaired by its defects, an important factor is whether the defect “shakes the buyer’s confidence” in the goods.   For example, under the New Jersey shaken confidence test, a New Jersey furniture’s value meets the New Jersey substantially impairment test where its nonconformity causes a loss of the buyer’s confidence in the New Jersey furniture.  For example, the purchase of new furniture a major investment rationalized by the peace of mind that flows from its dependability and safety.  Once the purchaser’s faith has been shaken, under New Jersey shaken confidence test, the New Jersey furniture loses not only its real value in their eyes, but it becomes an instrument whose integrity is substantially impaired and whose operation is fraught with apprehension.  In that situation, the New Jersey shaken confidence test is successfully met if the New Jersey judge or New Jersey jury deciding your New Jersey furniture warranty lawsuit agrees with the New Jersey consumer.

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY UNDER NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTY LAW?

Under the New Jersey implied warranty of merchantability, New Jersey furniture must be reasonably fit for the general purpose for which it is manufactured and sold." Merchantability means "that the article sold should be of the general kind described and reasonably fit for the general purpose for which it should have been sold."  For example, New Jersey furniture should be able to be safely used in the home.  When a manufacturer of a product, such as New Jersey furniture, in the stream of trade and promotes its purchase by New Jersey consumers, a New Jersey implied warranty that it is reasonably suitable for use as a New Jersey furniture accompanies it into the hands of the ultimate New Jersey furniture buyer from the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer. 

 

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE UNDER NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTY LAW?

Under the New Jersey implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose, a New Jersey implied warranty that New Jersey furniture is fit for a particular purpose arises when:

  • New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants enter into a contract for the New Jersey sale of New Jersey furniture

  • the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer knows or should know that the New Jersey consumer requires New Jersey furniture for a particular purpose; and

  • the New Jersey consumer is relying on the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s skill or judgment to pick or provide suitable goods,

 

For a New Jersey implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose to exist, the New Jersey consumer must actually rely on the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s skill or judgment rather than the New Jersey consumer relying on their own skill or judgment in buying New Jersey furniture.  To determine this issue, the New Jersey judge or New Jersey jury deciding a New Jersey implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose lawsuit considers the following:

  • all the facts and circumstances surrounding the New Jersey sale - both what was said and what was done by the New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants, including, any reference to a particular trade or brand name). 

  • whether under all of the facts and circumstances existing at the time of the New Jersey sale, the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer new or should have known that the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer required New Jersey furniture for a particular purpose and was relying on defendant’s skill, or judgment.  The New Jersey consumer does not have to specifically state their purpose to the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer; it is enough that the circumstances surrounding the New Jersey sale gave the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer reason to know of the New Jersey consumer’s purpose and that the New Jersey consumer was relying upon the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s skill or judgment.

  • whether New Jersey furniture was actually fit for that purpose. 

  • whether the New Jersey consumer gave the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer notice of that fact to the New Jersey defendant within a reasonable time after they discovered or should have discovered that New Jersey furniture was unfit for the particular purpose.  When plaintiff should have discovered the defect depends upon all the facts and circumstances, including the nature of the defect, the time when New Jersey furniture was put in use and whether the defect was discoverable by customary and reasonable inspections.  The New Jersey consumer’s notice is sufficient if it informs the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer that the New Jersey consumer lawsuited that New Jersey furniture was defective. 

 

WHAT MUST A NEW JERSEY CONSUMER DO BEFORE CLAIMING THAT A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF EXPRESS WARRANTY OCCURRED UNDER NEW JERSEY LAW?

If New Jersey furniture does not meet that New Jersey express warranty, the New Jersey consumer must then give the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer notice of that fact within a reasonable time after the New Jersey consumer discovered or should have discovered that New Jersey furniture did not meet the New Jersey express warranty.  When the New Jersey consumer should have discovered that New Jersey furniture did not meet the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer’s factual lawsuits or promises depends on all the facts and circumstances, including the nature of the defect, the time when New Jersey furniture was put in use and whether the nonconformity was discoverable by customary and reasonable inspections.  The New Jersey consumer’s notice to a New Jersey seller of a defect is normally sufficient if it informs the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer that the New Jersey consumer lawsuited that New Jersey furniture was defective.    If the New Jersey consumer gives the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer this notice in a reasonable time after the New Jersey consumer discovered or should have discovered the defect, then the New Jersey furniture store or New Jersey furniture manufacturer committed a New Jersey breach of express warranty and is responsible for paying the damages that the New Jersey breach of express warranty caused the New Jersey consumer to suffer.

                       

 

WHAT OTHER LAWS PROTECT NEW JERSEY CONSUMERS WITH NEW JERSEY FURNITURE WARRANTIES?

The Magnuson-Moss Federal Warranty-Trade Improvement Act (Federal Warranty Act) authorizes consumers to suit for damages for a New Jersey breach of certain warranties, including express and implied warranties, arising under New Jersey law in connection with the New Jersey sale by a supplier of a New Jersey consumer product.   The Federal Warranty Law offers consumers a basis in federal law for recovering damages.  Under the Federal Warranty Law, a New Jersey consumer may bring an action against a "supplier, warrantor, or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contractor" on any "written guarantee, New Jersey implied warranty or New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract."   Those successful under the Federal Warranty Law may recover their reasonable New Jersey attorney’s fees and New Jersey court costs.

 

NEW JERSEY FURNITURE EXTENDED WARRANTIES AND NEW JERSEY FURNITURE SERVICE CONTRACTS

Many people are buying New Jersey furniture extended warranties and New Jersey furniture service contracts.  You go to a New Jersey furniture store and get a bedroom set or living room set or family room set of furniture.  The salesperson asks if you want to buy a New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract with your furniture.  You think about it and buy it hoping it will cover any problem with the furniture you purchased.  Later, when you have a problem with the furniture, you pull out the New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract only to realize that your problems are not covered.  Instead, you find out that the New Jersey furniture extended warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on!  Often, New Jersey furniture purchasers pay good money for expensive New Jersey extended warranties or New Jersey furniture service contracts for their furniture.  The buyers of these New Jersey furniture extended warranties and New Jersey furniture service contracts hope that by buying these guarantees, they shall have peace of mind and be free of unexpected bills for repairs to their New Jersey furniture.  However, the New Jersey furniture extended warranty buyers and New Jersey furniture service contract buyers later learn to their surprise that the New Jersey furniture extended warranties and don’t cover the problems that they experience with their furniture.  Did you buy a New Jersey furniture warranty or New Jersey furniture service contract for your furniture and the New Jersey furniture extended warranty company or New Jersey furniture service contract company failed to fix the furniture or failed to service the furniture?  Don’t give up hope in getting help!

Handling New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!!   Do it right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey lawyer!

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?

New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees.  Most New Jersey Court employees are not trained New Jersey attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you.  Working at the New Jersey Court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

 

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY COURT?

The New Jersey Court usually provides certain types of New Jersey Court legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful.  However, beware relying on New Jersey Court forms provided by the New Jersey Court – the New Jersey Court forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey lawsuits often are much more complex than they first appear to be.   There is simply no substitute for a competent New Jersey attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey lawsuits.  New Jersey Court forms don’t talk and New Jersey Court forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey lawsuit.  Each New Jersey lawsuit has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges.   If you can afford a competent New Jersey attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey Court paperwork for you. 

 

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY LAWSUIT MYSELF?

Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants can and do successfully handle New Jersey lawsuits, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Court judgment.  However, many other New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey lawsuits or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Court money judgment against them.  The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the New Jersey lawsuit.  The following are reasons to use an attorney to handle part or all of New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit:

  • New Jersey Court fees often change

  • New Jersey Court rules often change

  • New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees

  • New Jersey Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in Court

  • each New Jersey lawsuit has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges

  • it is very common for New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Court complaints that result in the New Jersey Court complaints or answers to New Jersey Court complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey Court after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.  

  • it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey lawsuit. 

  • a Court has the power to punish unprepared New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants, such as by throwing their New Jersey lawsuit out of Court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Court trial. 

  • New Jersey has many published lawsuits, laws, regulations, Court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Court trial. 

  • it is very common for Courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Court trial that the person themselves never prepared.  Often New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants stumble into New Jersey Court with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a New Jersey Court judge tell the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants that it is not going to even consider such items or documents. 

  • without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Court.  Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Court trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to Court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published lawsuits. 

  • you cannot show up at the New Jersey Court expecting the judge hearing New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit to explain Court rules, evidence rules, Court procedure or the details of the law that applies to New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit.  The judge hearing New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit is not permitted to give you legal advice.

 

It is important to remember that even if you have an attorney, you could lose New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit.  Hiring an attorney to handle part or all of New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit does not guarantee your success.  However, it may provide what is needed to win New Jersey Lemon Law Lawsuit or to avoid certain mistakes.

NEED HELP WITH YOUR NEW JERSEY LAWSUIT?

Handling your New Jersey lawsuit wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!!  Do it right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey lawyer!

WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PLAINTIFFS AND NEW JERSEY PRO SE DEFENDANTS SEEK HELP FROM A NEW JERSEY LAWYER?

Handling your New Jersey lawsuit wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!!   Do it right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey lawyer!

Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants make the mistake of not consulting a New Jersey lawyer before filing New Jersey Court papers only to later learn that the New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants made serious mistakes that could cause them to lose their New Jersey lawsuit.  Let the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey lawsuit. 

 

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?

New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you lawsuit that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees.  Most New Jersey Court employees are not trained New Jersey attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you.  Working at the New Jersey Court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

 

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY COURT?

The New Jersey Court usually provides certain types of New Jersey Court legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful.  However, beware relying on New Jersey Court forms provided by the New Jersey Court – the New Jersey Court forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey lawsuits often are much more complex than they first appear to be.   There is simply no substitute for a competent New Jersey attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey lawsuits.  New Jersey Court forms don’t talk and New Jersey Court forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey lawsuit.  Each New Jersey lawsuit has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges.   If you can afford a competent New Jersey attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey Court paperwork for you. 

 

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY LAWSUIT MYSELF?

Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants can and do successfully handle New Jersey lawsuits, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Court judgment.  However, many other New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey lawsuits or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Court money judgment against them.  The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the New Jersey lawsuit.  The following are reasons to use New Jersey lemon lawyer to handle part or all of your New Jersey lawsuit:

  • New Jersey Court fees often change

  • New Jersey Court rules often change

  • New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you lawsuit that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees

  • New Jersey Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in Court

  • each New Jersey lawsuit has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges

  • it is very common for New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Court complaints that result in the New Jersey Court complaints or answers to New Jersey Court complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey Court after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.  

  • it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey lawsuit. 

  • a Court has the power to punish unprepared New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants, such as by throwing their New Jersey lawsuit out of Court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Court trial. 

  • New Jersey has many published lawsuits, laws, regulations, Court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Court trial. 

  • it is very common for Courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Court trial that the person themselves never prepared.  Often New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants stumble into New Jersey Court with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a New Jersey Court judge tell the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants that it is not going to even consider such items or documents. 

  • without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Court.  Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Court trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to Court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published lawsuits. 

  • you cannot show up at the New Jersey Court expecting the judge hearing your New Jersey lawsuit to explain Court rules, evidence rules, Court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey lawsuit.  The judge hearing your New Jersey lawsuit is not permitted to give you legal advice.

 

It is important to remember that even if you have New Jersey lemon lawyer, you could lose your New Jersey lawsuit.  Hiring New Jersey lemon lawyer to handle part or all of your New Jersey lawsuit does not guarantee your success.  However, it may provide what is needed to win your New Jersey lawsuit or to avoid certain mistakes.
