So the latest Miscellany arrives last weekend and there is something within the For Sale items I would like to buy.

I ring the seller last Saturday (Morgan Member - obviously) confirm the item is still for sale (I am the first caller) and after a brief chat, I agree to purchase. The item just needs to be weighed before posting and the seller agree's to call me on Monday. The payment method is confirmed and he says "thanks very much, it is sold to you".

Monday comes and goes so I text him Tuesday to remind him to call me and confirm the total amount so that I can make payment....nothing comes back from him.

So I call a few days after to confirm everything is still OK? And he states that he has sold to someone else.

When I ask him how this has transpires, he says "I don't need to explain I have just sold it" and bang the phone goes down mad2

I was kind of hoping that there was some honour amongst Morgan owners and I assume that this is NOT typical behaviour.

It IS annoying though swear

WOW, something i hate, people reneging on a deal, a mans word should be final in my book, many a time i have had people make me a better offer after i have shook someones hand, all i say to them is ' would you like me to do this to you' ?

Unfortunately, in every sphere, there are one or two that let the side down...

Disappointing to hear - and I'd wager not usual behaviour from a Morgan owner. Everyone I have had the pleasure to deal with in the realms of Morgan has been brilliant.


Unacceptable behaviour - if that person is on here I hope you bow your head in shame.

Not a good experience - I have never heard of it happening on here and I have bought and sold a couple of items over the years. I am surprised that a Morgan owner would do this TBH.

You have a verbal legal contract where he has agreed the sale to you verbally

It’s legally binding in contact law

You can pursue a claim in the small claims court if you like and you should even though it’s not worth it to teach a lesson

I doubt that, there was no "consideration".

In the words of Samuel Goldwyn "a verbal contract isn't worth the paper it is written on". But verbal or written, if nothing of value has changed hands then there isn't a contract at all.

I would take it up with the club though, it is bad form for the magazine.

I doubt that. With no "consideration" there is no contract.


No Ian I’m correct

The ‘consideration’ is clear if the price is agreed and someone has agreed to sell that for that price and the person has agreed to buy it at the price verbally

Sorry to be pedantic but there is consideration- the price that was agreed to be paid It doesn’t have to actually change hands for it to be so.
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!
