Hi again. In my case the item advertised for sale was a microlight aircraft, which was advertised at a truly bargain price because the vendor needed the money (to buy a different aircraft if fact). Although not as unique as a work of fine art for example, could it not be argued that the 'book' price for this type of microlight (particularly since it came with a custom-built trailer and many accessories) was unquestionably higher than his asking price, which I agreed to without haggling.......? I've therefore missed out financially because to buy another microlight + trailer of this type (not that I'm likely to find one in the near future) would cost a great deal more. I'm truly disgusted that this man didn't keep his word!
In relation to this issue, would it be helpful to me to get a Solicitor's letter formulated and delivered advising this vendor that he was in breach of a binding verbal contract and unless the agreement was honoured litigation may result?
I want to put pressure on the vendor to honour the contract..... ie. retrieve the item from the person who now has it and sell it to me, as agreed.
