HelloThis is Samuel. I suggest you can tell him that he is in breach of contract because the additional $200 is not in the contract and if need be you will file a Small Claims lawsuit to recover your money, plus interest and you will request the court order him to pay your filing and any other associated fees. Put that in writing and mail it certified with a return receipt. If he does not refund your money, then file the lawsuit in small claims in the county where he is located.
You can file it on your own by getting the forms from the clerk of the court in that county. You do not need a local attorney to help you. Generally, after a letter of that nature is received there is room for settlement without court.
You have a contract and a bill of sale. That is all the evidence you need to show the court what the agreement was and now he is jacking you around for an additional $200. And seek your rental expenses in your claim.
You're welcome. Thanking you in advance for a positive rating as that ensures I get credit for my time and information. Good luck.
