HelloMy name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regard
So the car is in your name only and you did make a request for him to return it, correct?
I see you are here and are typing.
he is back at my place with the car. we are both on the lease unfortunatly so he can be there. i want my car back so i can look for a new place to live
Right. And so the car is there now. And it is your name only - Correct?
Do you have keys to it?
no he has the key
I suggest you can call the police and tell them that he has the key to your car, he has taken your car and you want them to do a police report for vehicle theft.
Tell them that you do not give him permission to have it in his possessio
You will need to have a copy of the Title and Registration showing Ownership
There is no reason that the police should not get involved.
i told him to take the car in Palm Springs thinking he would be back shortly but when i realize he was not bringing it back and using the car to see me im not ok with
that was 6 days ago
That's alright. Now, you have told him you want it back.
That means if he has not returned it, then you have a right to call the police
how can i get the car with out seeing him, can i have a friend pick it up
I thought you said he has the key?
If you have a key you can go get it.
either way im screwed yes he has the only key
You should be with the friend in case he calls the police and you can show you are the legal owner
Then call the police and report it stolen.
Tell them you told him you want it back
