Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Did you have a written agreement with the consignment business? What did it provide as far as notices and time of payment?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
written agreement. No agreed sales price. Just they would call me before selling to make sure sales price was ok with me.

Thank you for the additional information.

The consignment seller has breached the agreement and you could sue them for breach. You would need to show that you were damaged by their failure to get approval. The damages would be if the unit sold for less than you would have required and been able to get.
