Almost certainly posted this in the wrong place for which apologies!

 

I am in the process of purchasing some electrical equipment by private sale (running side by side with buying a property from the same vendor).

 

Can anybody point me in the direction of a simple template for a private sale/purchase agreement that is appropriate for use in England? I have found a few online through "legal" websites but they are either very American or require some sort of fee/subscription - my Solicitors will knock one up but also charge the earth!

 

Thanks in advance if anybody can help.

I am no expert but presume you are satisfied with the goods as they are now.

 

Surely, as English & Welsh Law (I presume also Scottish & Northern Irish) is based on what is reasonable and is not basically complicated all that is needed is an agreed description of the goods and the amount charged and a receipt of payment - that is a bill of sale.

 

I wonder why anything more sophisticated is needed.

 

If the goods turn out to be not as described presumably a dispute would result and if settlement cannot be agreed between buyer and seller a court of law can be used to determine a resolution.

 

(I suspect I maybe missing the point here and offer apologies)

I appreciate your rapid response, thank you.

 

Yes, am happy with the goods and that they are in working order etc....I wondered if I needed to confirm in the Agreement, for example, that there is no lien on them (HP etc), that the seller is the legal owner etc etc

 

Maybe I am just overthinking it!

What are you trying to buy and what is the value?

I imagine that clarifying that the seller does own the goods could be worthwhile but on the reasonableness test, I would presume that if I was buying something and if later it turned out not to be true, I would report the theft to the police, though I do not know how that might help financially as I know the goods would be removed from me because as an inadvertent receiver of stolen goods, I would have no claim on the items.

 

It is not so much overthinking as just the normal complications of life, if you are suspicious in the first place - which I presume you are not - just don't buy the goods.

 

We could both better spend our time - I suggest - these are very high class problems, indeed

Guys, thanks for the comments...I eventually found an agreement online that does what I need it to do...hammer to crack a nut I suspect!
