What was the item? Maybe got damaged in transit. Did he see it working when he collected it? If it was working and he was satisfied with it then I don't think he has any recourse, somethings obviously happened in transit.

Tell him you'll need to inspect the item to verify it's state, so ask them to drop it off and you'll make the call re: refund.

 

I guess it depends on the item and whether you'll be able to spot if it's been tampered with.

 

As for standing outside the house, it's his time to waste.

 

If he challenges you, blocks your path or prevents you going about your business... call the police.

 

Might be worth ringing them to have a chat anyway if you're concerned for your safety... I guess it depends on your impression of the buyer.

 

If he strikes you as a bit loopy, ask yourself, is it worth the hassle for £40?

It was an oven and hob he claims the oven doesn’t work I told him it worked when it left mine 

i don’t know if he has dropped it or changed his mind etc I don’t want it back he could have done anything to it

Was it electric or gas? How long has it been disconnected.

Not sure about gas ovens, maybe the pilot light or the thermo electric sensor have moved during transportation.
