I purchased a semi trailer from a dealer in Arkansas 2 months

This answer was rated:

I purchased a semi trailer from a dealer in Arkansas 2 months ago and have still not received a title.
They have told me that the trailer was in a loan with other equipment and they were trying to get the title released.
What can I do, I have done quite a bit of work to the trailer and want to keep it.

Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.

Good morning. It's time to raise the stakes on them. Send them a certified,
return receipt requested letter detailing the history and demanding that they deliver you clean title within a short
specified period of time. Inform them that if your demand is not timely
complied with, you will have no choice but to file a suit against them for your
damages. Be sure to specifically mention that you will be filing this claim not
only as a breach of contract case, but also as a deceptive trade practice
action, which will entitle you not only to your damages, but also an additional
amount equal to 3 times that as punitive damages. That should provide plenty of
incentive to comply with your demands; but, if it does not, file your suit.
