The Law Commission and the Scottish Law Commission have written to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (DBIS) with their views on unfair terms in consumer contracts. The paper updates previous proposals to reform the current Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 into a single harmonised regime. The paper focuses on the interpretation of the term “plain intelligible language” and calls for greater certainty on what the term encompasses. It also calls for small print to be assessable for fairness and for there to be greater transparency and prominence of terms that fall outside the scope of fairness reviews.
