or are you paying cash? $27,000.00 seems like a lot of used equipment (just an observation). If he doesn't finance it make him an offer on the low side. Either way make sure you get a non-compete. Remember if your non-compete is too restrictive it will likely not be enforcable. Last but not least, remember, YOU ARE THE ONLY BUYER. No one else can buy this. Keep this in mind and do not overpay.

I have owned several businesses and wasted lots of $ over the years, but the money I have given my lawyers has never been wasted. You don't need a sample contract you need an attorney, pay $500 less to your partner and give it to a lawyer.

to add that an accountant can help structure this deal too more than save his cost in taxes. Things like paying more for the depreciating assets...whatever...I don't know this stuff but the accountants do.

$ 27,000 in equipment is for what I think I can sell the equipment/ trucks today out of the paper if we had to liquidate.
