Over 25 years ago, the EU legislated against unfair contract terms in consumer contracts, and Ireland adopted that law. It is now being applied by the CJEU in mortgage enforcement cases, and has become a significant feature of an active EU consumer policy. National courts must carry out an ‘own motion’ or ‘ex officio’ examination of consumer contracts, in disputes, for any unfair terms. This article considers the recent varied and somewhat hesitant development of Irish law on this topic.
