I sold a motorcycle to somebody in NY I live in NJ the bike was run and drive with salvage title the guy planned on shipping the bike over seas but now he says he can't because he can't insure it or register and he can't wait for the inspection or pay the fee for the inspection and he wants a refund the sale happened 3 days ago I signed the title and everything what could I do?
If he bought it knowing it was a salvage title, you have a contract and a sale.
This should not be considered legal advice and is intended for educational purposes only. It does not constitute a contract for legal services between any parties. Answers are given to questions for which there may be additional facts not mentioned which might change the legal issues or consequences.
You could tell him the sale was an arm's length transaction, that you disclosed the condition of the title, and that he accepted the bike with that knowledge. Sale and contract completed. There is no lemon law issue here, nor does the broader consumer fraud act (CFA) appear to be implicated.
As NY is a UCC jurisdiction, he's likely well aware of the ancient concept of caveat emptor.
