Having said that I don’t think it’s actually illegal ( no law has been broken) but is probably a breach of contract.

P..S I’m not a lawyer just waiting for my Morgan to be built!


You are right it isn’t ‘illegal’, I was being a bit overly dramatic

You are right of course it is a breach of contract

I’ve successfully faught two cases exactly like this where a judge has sided with me as the aggrieved claimant

Yes, I believe Stuart is correct - although the final component, a mutual intention to be bound, could be argued to not be present if the seller always intended to sell to a higher bidder if one came along.

In any event, it's very poor form. A chap's word is his bond. Clearly the seller is no gentleman.

But once the seller has agreed to sell to the buyer at the price verbally agreed the seller can not sell to higher bidder

The only loose item which could cause an issue was the cost of postage but under the sale of good act 1982 and the later distance selling regulations of 2000, the postage is concidered a separate element to the contract if the price of the item is agreed and I would argue that if the sellers offer of the postage was too high I would have the opportunity to make alternative arrangements such as collecting the item

Seems fair

I’ll ask the big question what is to stop the non seller being named and shamed in the interest of preventing others being frustrated by their actions?
Option B
What were you interested in buying? Just in case someone on here has similar to sell?

I know nothing about contact law/civil law so would be interested in answers.

Perhaps the other buyer was able to pick up saving the hassle of wrapping and posting?
Still not fair

Pretty poor show, even if a cash buyer turned up and was able to collect he still should have given you that option before changing horses if you couldn't match it!

Extremely poor form and I would make the club and magazine aware of it.

Agree, very poor form. A person’s word and integrity is everything as far as I’m concerned.
