Long ass story but my car was damaged really badly in a parking lot. The person who did it couldn't be found, I had a third party policy and I wasn't feeling overly optimistic that they would be found. I sold the car for scrap/repair/what ever they wanted to do with my car.
Fast forward a few months, after tracking down CCTV and hours and hours following up with cops and insurance company and it looks like they are going to pay me out (market value minus salvage cost). It will be registered in NSW as a repairable write off so I thought it would be proper to offer the buyer their money back. Sale of the car was organised by my partner. They have repaired and sold it, but we were open and honest with them about having a pending insurance claim. They want the price that they sold it for; which is more than what I'll get back from the insurer.
Anyone have any advice on where I stand legally or have any advice on people to contact for legal advice? What rights does the buyer have?
