Secondary tickets sellers succeed in appeal

April 16, 2019

Seamus Austin of Tuckers Solicitors has successfully acted for businesses and individuals in appealing against the decisions of North Yorkshire County Council (which hosts the National Trading Standards eCrime Team) to impose maximum £5,000 penalties for breaching the secondary ticket re-sale provisions of the Consumer Rights Act 2015.

Having been successful in the first cases of their kind to be brought before the First Tier Tribunal, but with other cases already in the pipeline, it is anticipated that this decision will pave the way for further successful appeals.

If you have been issued a Notice of Intent or Final Notice by a local authority Trading Standards Dept under Chapter 5 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (Secondary Ticketing) contact Seamus Austin at
