The number of new litigation cases opened by Luxembourg’s consumer’s union, the ULC, rose by 2.7% from 2016 to 2017.
Last year, the not-for-profit opened 5,124 litigation cases. In its annual round-up director Guy Goedert said the majority were related to buildings and accommodation, rental contracts, litigation with estate agencies, co-owners and detailed accounts for tenants.
The ULC had 44,000 members in 2017. Created in 1961, it protects and educates consumers about their rights.
