      Whenever I sell a car, I always use a arbitration form that lets the customer know that they cannot initiate class action suit against me. On the arbitration form that I use, there is a line that states that I as the seller, will pay the first $1500 in arbitrations fees, should the buyer elect arbitration. Is this correct and legal ? What happens if I remove this sentence ?


      This rule if in fact legal and is mandated by the arbitration council, can be unfair to some sellers or service providers, hence we don't make more than $1500 profit on selling the item or providing a service. Malicious buyers can elect this just to financially hurt a seller .
