    Does anyone use a contract or agreement of sale when selling their domains?

    Was it generated by a lawyer/solicitor or is there a standard form that you use?

    Someone is interested in a domain that I own & I notice he works for one of the top 5 global consultancies. If it is for his personal use then ok however if he is buying it on behalf of his firm then the purchase price will have to reflect this....

    any advice?

    thnx

    Why does the buyer make difference to the price? - just because someone has more money does that mean they have to pay much more for the same product/item?

    So long as you sell it for a price you're happy with then what's the problem :???:

    The buyer DOES make a difference.

    If it's for this individual, for his own project then I will sell it to him at a price we both are comfortable. Happy to help start-ups, small business.

    If it's going to a global company that has massivly deep pockets then I'm not going to let it go for the same price when clearly they will benefit hugely by having this domain and potentially make large revenues from it.

    Besides, if you were selling a car for X and someone offered you xxx for it, would you turn it down?

    Selling and buying involves a process of negotiation. Knowing who I'm dealing with will enable me to sell it at a price I'm happy with :)

    I see where your coming from but I don't think the buyer should make a difference.

    If the person buying it does so in their name and then transfers it and you try and get more money it would be like nominet coming knocking on your door saying you bought this domain from us for £5 and then sold it to someone else for £10 give us another £5.

    Could you imagine if they had that in their contract?

    My point is. I want to know who the buyer is representing, himself or the company he works for. If I'm deceived then I have the right to cover myself in the sale contract.

    Your Nominet example is completely irrelevant. The same as if you bought a new suit at full price and then saw it in a sale a week later with 2/3rds off, you aint gonna get the £ difference back.

    Now, does anyone have advice re contracts....:)

    Thanks

    We have a couple of contracts, but our solicitor says they are written with US law in mind so probably not suitable for UK use.

    We have not yet found the need for a contract on a sale, but one of our customers insisted and provided their own agreement. There is no clause about the buyer being and individual or corporate customer.

    Your price should not depend on the buyer, trying to include that element is a bad idea.
