We never signed anything. It was all done verbally.
So at this point, I think that it would be worth our while to push the issue if they keep pushing back.
Thank you for your direction, it helps my piece of mind and the thought that we can sort of "fight" back.
Unfortunately my husband really angered them. When I went down there to try and talk to them they had had it with us.
Now there is no negation with them and they want their money. They also told me that there is a signed contract in the car and the car is stored in an off site lot.
My husband did not sign a contract with them.
I am not sure where to go from here in a legal sense. I know that we talked about taking them to court. Do you know an estimated time of how long that might take?
They first told me that we cannot get the possessions in the car until we have paid for it. Can they do this legally? If they do not come up with the car tomorrow to let us get our stuff out of the car and show a contract signed by us to do the work, do you think that I have a right to have the police involved?
So if they are keeping the car, do they have to come up with a signed contract to continue to keep the car?
Thanks Ely. I will try to take it from here for now. I will probably have other questions later but this all for now.
Thank you for your help
