1 and half year ago my client had given advertisement to sell falt. One party given cheque of rs 1 lacs and cash of 50000. MY client has deposited cheque and given reciept of rs 500 for cash payment. Thereafter buyer did not turn to buy house and client has given advertisemtn and sold out flat to another buyer after six months.
Now my lcinet and fist buy did not enter into any contract or agreement. there was one bank transaction and one cash transaction.
The person has made police complaint against my client on the ground of fraud that my client has taken money and sold flat to another person.
Police has closed the complaint on the ground that it is civil matter.
Can anyone advise about what is the position of law in this matter? Can anyone claim payment made without any contraction evidence.?
Can my client can claim that payment made for professional services / remuneration and not for house sale.
