Country relating to Question: United States
nothing threaten to take him to court
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.How is it he "pawned" the property? Did you give it to him? Loan it to him? Did he steal it?
i let him pawn it with it the understanding that he would immediately get it out and it has been since december of last yea.r he signs the pawn ticket every month that he pays for it is his loan
ThanksIf this was a loan to him, then you can demand he repay the loan. And if he refuses, you an sue him to force him to.You can take him to Small Claims court, where the court can order he pay you the value of your items.Small claims is easy...no need to hire a lawyer. You head to the county court and file this with the clerk of the court.I do recommend this bookHere is the linkTo prepare...the rules of court do not apply, but it is a good idea to have an idea of what the judge is looking for.If you can show the judge you loaned him the property and he did not return like he promised, the court can order he pay you the value of the property
