The first time I bought, I flew to the plane, I paid for a not-that-extensive pre-buy. AD/Logbook check, check for metal, compresssions, and that was about it. The second time I bought, I flew to see it, it just came out of an extensive annual. I saw the laundry list of items. When I sold the first plane, it had just finished annual and the buyer was fine with that, and actually bought it sight unseen because he had a buddy of his eyeball it and say, yep, looks good. I delivered the plane on my dime, he bought my one way ticket back. I have a buyer lined up (thanks to PoA word of mouth and if it goes through a bottle of scotch to be given as commission) and the annual is due at the end of the month. Since my shop is booked solid, the plan is to have me fly it to their location (6 hr flight one way) for the initial once over, give them a checkout, and leave the plane at the shop where they are going to be taking it it in the future should they decide to move forward after the initial once over. So - input from both sides is appreciated as to what's fair for both parties for: Travel costs to bring the plane to them and getting me home if - the sale goes through - the sale does not go through Inspection costs: What is to be paid by each party if - the sale goes through - the sale does not go through I have ideas on what should be covered by the buyer and the seller, but wanted input from others who have gone through it.
