Maybe two weeks WAS his asap. Who's to say he didn't have a medical emergency preventing pick up earlier?
I maintain the seller had a judicial responsibility to INSURE THE SECURITY OF THE DINK, because he had no knowledge, or way of knowing, just how long it would take for the buyer to pick it up.

Re: eBay sale went south

One question the seller should be asked is "If the boat had not been sold, would you have left it at the same location and secured the same way when you were away?"

eBay sale went south




But yes, agreed, we don't know if or what the buyer replied.

That email was after the sale. It's irrelevant to the terms of sale. The seller also admits there are some problems with the paperwork to transfer ownership. A total refund is in order.

Re: eBay sale went south

No one has mentioned the dollar amount of the transaction.
$5? $50? $500? $5,000 ???


Add a little perspective.

Who needs a perspective for splitting a few hairs?

You are absolutely correct. I don't know what I was thinking when I posted that.
Thank you for putting it in perspective.

Re: eBay sale went south

I believe the seller is right, given that He performed his obligation and Made it clear to the seller that He would Leave the place shortly.

After 48hrs from transaction, or after 48hrs from that notice, it is the buyer who was short of his obbligation and failed to do his own duties (pick up).

He did not ask for custody, nor advised He was belated.

Re: eBay sale went south

Let me add, the issuance of the Bill of Sale occurs at the transfer of ownership, as the good, unregistered, belongs to that one holding documents of origin and having actual possession.

Buyer failed on this 2nd joint, nor at a seller's culprit

Re: eBay sale went south

If you had transferred the dingy, not the paperwork, but the actual dingy, handed the buyer the keys, etc., then Id say you are right. You transferred paper, but never delivered the dingy..

Never take PayPal as final payment. Small deposit only

Re: eBay sale went south

Did the buyer state hed pick it up at his convenience (or it was clear you wouldnt be around)? If so, it seems like its on him, not you.

Re: eBay sale went south

Sorry but it was your responsibility to give him the dinghy. Because of your arrangements of which he had no control it was stolen. If you have any ethics you should realize the reason it was stolen was because of your actions not his. He deserves to have you refund your money. Since you never transferred actual possession you can file a claim with your insurance company. If he sues you he will win.

Re: eBay sale went south

Check with a lawyer. Don't rely on the responses posted here. In my mind you comleted the sale when you gave him title.
