Dear customer, your matter relates to contract law.
The long held rule of contract is that once the signature of a party is written on the agreement and exchange has occurred, the contract will be binding even if the party has not read the terms and conditions. However, there are limited exceptions to this rule, that would ultimately need to be argued in court.In relation to your matter, whether you can pursue a claim against the former purchaser for the loss that was incurred, it will be subject to the contract that was entered into with that party. If the contract is silent on the specific matter, it will be difficult to raise a claim against that party. However, subject to the time frame this matter occurred, you may be able to claim a breach-of-contract against that party and sue for damages.
The key element in your claim is the contract that was sign with that party. If there is no contract a claim for breach-of-contract will be difficult.
