    Craigslist purchase

    I'm looking to purchase an atv from out of state, but have some concerns about the transfer. I was wondering what the simplest, most effective way to create a legal binding document would be? If we were to exchange emails describe the vehicle, it's condition, price etc, would this constitute as a legal binding document? I'm just leary of paying for something without having anything to back it up. Other than the title & bill of sale. Which I would have to trust him to send once the shipper picks up the atv. Any help & advice you can offer wound be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    You can look for escrow services that may be able to help you complete the transaction. You can request payment COD = Collect On Delivery. This means the seller ships the ATV and you make payment to the courier when payment is received. Many times emails do constitute sufficient means of proving a contract but it really depends on specific facts and circumstances.
