Elizabethtown, KY asked in Contracts and Lemon Law for Kentucky

Q: Do I have to accept return of camper after sale?

Kentucky:  Sold a camper to a friends associate. He gave us half in cash and half in checks. When the last one clears, we are going to give him the title. There is absolutely no contract on it though. He took it to Florida, and told us the next day that there were a couple of issues. The water tank leaks, the extra add on battery back up was dead, and the ignition knob on the stove was broke. We offered $250 back but told him there was nothing else we could do. He is saying he’s going to drive it back up here and get his money back and give us $500 for rental. Is this something he could actually do? There is so much gray area with it I have no idea. We told him when he came out to look at it that we have never used it and have only owned it for a few months. We bought it for my father-in-law but his health declined so we decided to sell it. We told him to the best of our knowledge everything worked, but he was fully aware that we haven’t used everything on it. Any help?

A: Get estimates for repair of the three items he complained of and refund only that part. Beyond that, you don’t need to do anything else and you do not have to accept the return or refund the rest of the money.
