Keel smashed off, huge hole in side, scratches penetrting the gel and in some places the laminate, looked like it had been dropped out of a helicopter.

Up date today. The Broker never replied to my email so i phoned him. The Broker has said if i email him my bank details he will transfer the money. I have sent the details requesting email confirmation that the transfer has been effected. I have heard nothing so far. Why he cant write a cheque I don't know. But I will see if i get an email tomorrow.

I have sent 5 emails asking for confirmation that the transfer has been effected. No response. I called into the office to ask why he had not replied. The broker said "i don't see why i have to " supposedly sent confirmation in front of me at his office, but nothing this end. I have a bad feeling about this.

Construct a letter and send it recorded delivery outlining your resons for not going forward with the sale and the resons you want your deposit back. Tell him that a copy has been sent to your solicitors and that he has 7 working days to re-credit your account with the deposit moneys you paid him or face legal action and police enquiry.

It also sounds like you have gone as far as you can, so might want to name him in this thread to see if anyone else has had bother with him and how they dealt with any disagreement.

In addition to HT's advice, you should make a Police report NOW for fraud.
You should then advise him of the police report number/ date/ police station and officer number. etc.

5000 deposit?

5000 seems like a very large deposit for a 5.5m RIB.

It is usual to pay a 10% deposit subject to sea trial and survey. You then sign a contract which sets out the rights of both parties regarding the sale, survey and sea trial - ie spelling out what the options are if the sea trial / survey don't go as hoped, dates for the survey, completion etc.

The Association of British Yacht Agents - ABYA, is an association whose aim it is to ensure high standards in the Brokerage industry. Their members are required to run a good operation with correct contracts and procedures, have a clients account and also to carry PI insurance.

Was it an ABYA member?

There are also some good brokers who are not ABYA members as well!

Very good advice from Limey too. You could then add this info to the letter to give it extra weight.

A few months ago my elderly uncle called me to tell me that someone had stolen 150 pounds from his bank account. He had contacted the bank and of course the response was " not our problem" I advised him to go to the police and make a report and get a copy and take it to the bank. They paid up instantly. IT WORKS.
