Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
Q: What should I do and what does the Delaware law allow for.
A: If I were in your shoes, I would tell the buyer that I am sorry that she regrets the sale, but that it is a done deal. I would not only refuse to refund the money, but I would explain that I expect the outstanding balance to be paid within 3 weeks of signing the contract
, as indicated in the contract. I would also inform her that if she refuses to pay the outstanding balance, then I will take legal action against her.
If she in fact does fail to pay the remaining balance, then per Delaware law, I would sue her in small claims
court for breach of contract
, and seek the unpaid balance of $4250 and the cost of filing the lawsuit. In court, I would provide the judge with a copy of the contract, explain that half of the purchase price remains unpaid, and that I wish for a judgment against the defendant in the amount of $4250 plus the cost of filing the lawsuit. I would then file the judgment in the Maryland court so that I could take collection action against the defendant if she refuses to pay the judgment. Collection action could include wage garnishments, property liens, and bank garnishments.
