Hello, welcome to the website. My name isXXXXX can assist you with this.
What would you like to know about this please?
You mean whether you're liable to the purchaser?
Were you selling in the course of a business - i.e. do you do this as a business or was it a private sale?
Okay. You cannot be liable if you sold it "as seen".
You only have to sell something as being "fit for purpose" when you sell as a business, e.g. as a vehicle trader.
The buyer is thinking the law applies (under the Sale of Goods Act 1979) when it does not.
It was sold as seen boought cash no reciet
Then that's fine - there is no liability on you. If takes you to court, then he should lose on that basis.
So that's all then.
Yes, it's a pretty simple legal position. The implied duties about quality and fitness only apply when you sell in the course of a business.
That's the thing about private sales, and auction sales etc., there are no guarantees of what you're getting.
