Can I go back on an offer to sell an item?
Question Details: I moved out of my apartment 2 days ago and my landlord was going to purchase my washer and dryer for $200. I left them there. He has sent me a check but I've decided I no longer wish to do business with him. I have not received/cashed the check. Am I allowed to rescind my offer?
No, you cannot rescind the transaction: the agreement between you, even if unwritten or oral, was a contract; he performed his obligations by sending you the money; you are therefore contractually obligated to perform your own obligations and sell the items. You left the items for him: he may legally keep them and you cannot get them back.
