I did and you didn't state what his complaint was

Making assumptions isn't going to get you anywhere

Op does he already have the item? Because you mentioned it’s ready to go...
Item collected last Friday,I am concerned as I work long hours my wife on her own
Sold as seen but without more details it's difficult to comment. If he makes any threats then tell him you will report him to the police so keep all the texts as evidence
Without telling us what his complaint is, then how can anyone possibly advise you properly?

So to clarify, the buyer has said that they want to return the conservatory - for what reason? It was sold as seen so politely inform them of that and that you will not offer a refund. Suggest to them that anymore aggressive messages then you will potentially report them to the police for harrassment.

He’s probably just rubbish with instructions. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Just let him know that you’ve contacted the authorities.
I have sought legal advice ,just awaiting their response regards this iss
I could have pretty much guaranteed that selling a 2nd hand conservatory on ebay would lead to problems.
I don't know why you need legal advice... Was it cash on collection? Then he can't even open a case.

He bought after having physically seen the item... sold as seen and there is no recourse after. He can't do anything. What is he threatening? Relax and just ignore him and YOU tell him that if he comes to your house and harasses you you'll report him to the police.

if he can prove that what you sold him is not in line with your advert or written statements in subsequent correspondence, then he can take you to the small claims court to claim a refund.

however, without this proof, it is buyer beware and he can't really get his money back.

Even if the buyer has had time to inspect the item in person? That would be ridiculous really.

from the OP's description, it would appear that it was already dismantled for the buyer so the OP may have assured him that it was perfect without issues and he trusted the OP. if he can prove that the sale was based on the assurance that it was in working order and it is not, then he will be able to claim a refund. However, the onus is on the buyer to prove this.
Solicitor has since advised to contact citizens advice ,Sold as seen
I would refund and move on, not worth the aggro and the lingering fear.
