I purchased it used from a designer/stagger several years ago. The buyer said it has a tag on it that says 'This furniture is manufactured for model home display only' so now they say it feels like a prop. I know it had tags - but I never read them. We used the furniture in our home for several years and for staging (my husband sells real estate). We sat on the furniture and never had a problem with it. I thought Craig's List sales were 'as is', so I am not sure what to do. These people know where we live.
Did you sell this sofa with any warranty, express or implied? DId yuo make any representations that weren't true?
Used sales on Craigslist or otherwise are often but not automatically "as is" since some sellers do provide warranties and do make representations, so it really depends on the exact language you used in your advertising.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.
You indicated that he purchased a sofa, you didn’t read the tags. You had no knowledge and they sold the sofa to another party 7 days ago. I think you would be in the stronger position than the buyer. It really sounds like buyer’s remorse. It should be their problem.
