We are an independent dealership in PA. We sold a vehicle to a customer whose check bounced. After pursuing the money owed for over a month, the customer returned the vehicle. Due to the wear and tear put on the vehicle, we had to sell it for $4,000 less. Do we have grounds to sell?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Dear Dealer: Absolutely. You have a legal right to sue for breach of your written sales agreement (contract). You may also wish to include a claim for fraudulent inducement, unlawful conversion, diminution in value, and punitive damages, etc.
An experienced Attorney should be able to represent you in preparing and filing your lawsuit.
