My daughter lives in Victoria and has sold a horse in the past week for $15,000. The buyer paid the full amount into my daughter's bank account last Friday, 1st August, and went to pick the horse up on Saturday 2nd August. She had difficulties loading the horse and left the agistment property without the horse. She has since requested a full refund, engaged a friend (who is a lawyer from what we can ascertain) who has written a letter to my daughter making demands for her to accept a lower purchase price ($5,000 reduction). My daughter is in the process of making contact with a lawyer who specialises in these types of cases, but can't speak with him until Monday 11th August. In the meantime the horse remains in limbo, on an agistment property of a third party. My question is, who is the legal owner of the horse under Australian Consumer Law? Obviously if the purchaser chooses to take legal action, then a court would decide an outcome to the dispute. In the meantime, my daughter is being hassled by this lawyer friend of the purchaser and the demands have had three deadlines (firstly 2 hours after the letter was received by email on Tues 5th Aug, 2nd the COB of following day, and now 3rd deadline is next Monday 11th Aug. I am trying to at least help her by establishing who legally owns the horse and to convince my daughter not to do anything until she engages her own legal advice. Really appreciate assistance or guidance (someone to talk with etc).
