What are the potential legal issues in selling a domain?

    I've been reading quite a bit on domain selling and I've not yet come across any information to be aware of legally, when selling a domain.

    Quick note, I'm referring to selling just a domain name - not flipping or selling anything in addition to the domain name.

    Is the reason I am unable to find any information on this, because there really isn't any?

    It's a 'buyer beware' scenario? If the domain has been/is sand-boxed by Google, has bad backlinks (considered spam now and effecting future SEO), and/or is disallowed and banned on AdWords by the previous owner, would this ever come back on the previous owner AFTER the sale and transfer?

    Any advice is appreciated, truly I have not been able to find anything and it concerns me in moving forward in selling some domain names when I don't have at least some knowledge on what to be aware of.

    Thanks in advance.
