Vashon, WA asked in Lemon Law for Oregon

Q: I bought an RV on Friday used as is Can I cancel it and return the RV and sue him for fraud?

I bought an RV on Friday used as is knowing it had water damage that was dried out and asked the seller if the RV was still leaking and had mold her verbally told me no. Told me he had been doing this for 25 years that he was the main Company manger and a few hundred bucks and it would be fixed. My contractor looked at it today and that was all a LIE!! I asked him to take it back and give me my money back and he said no. He fraudulently represented the facts of the RV. My check has not cleared. Can I cancel it and return the RV and sue him for fraud?

A: If you successfully cancel the check, you would not be able to sue for fraud since you would then have no damages. Otherwise, you could sue for fraud, but you might have difficulty winning given you purchased it as is, and there could be a legitimate difference of opinion as to how much it would cost to repair.
