my old boyfriend bought a 2000 SUV and get it to me. Paid $4,000 cash for it. He had the title, the registation put in my name. The title for the car is in my name, Ive paid the registation and insurance on the vehicle. The truck needed work before it could pass inspection. I.E. (4) new tires and brakes all around. He had his friends repair the truck and he handled the payment for this. Over the last year I have payment him $2,500 for the cost the REPAIRS only. He has bullyed me for the money, for we are no longer in a relationship. The small claims is for $1,500. which seems to me is the difference in the price of the vehicle originally. I paid for the repairs not the vehicle
HiThank you for the clarificationIf you have an agreement for a certain price he cannot now come back and say you owe more for the vehicleHowever, if he made the repairs and the money is for his time and work, then yes he can sue you for any work he did that you did not pay forBut it is not because he now thinks you owe him more for the vehicle than the agreed upon purchase price.Am I hitting the mark now?
He bought the truck for me and gave it to me..The price of the truck was $4,000.
The truck needed brakes and tires before it could be put on the road.
He paid an addition $2,500 for the brakes and tires.
I was to pay him back on the repairs of the truck not the cost.
To this date I've paid him $2,500. for the repairs. Which is the amount of the repairs.
He is taking me to court for and addition $1,500. He says I still owe him on the price of the cost of the truck. The truck was a gift.
