Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Based on the arrangement you had with the seller, it sounds as though you have an oral contract
, as you do not mention a written sales agreement. If you are paying monthly payments and that is what the agreement was, you could sue the seller for breach of your oral contract. Because it is only $850 in question, this would be a small claims
court matter without an attorney. Unfortunately, if they take the car back for your non-payment, you would not be entitled to recover anything you paid, so you would have to pursue this under breach of contract
to continue making the monthly payments as you had previously agreed and have a payment history of paying them. If you present this payment history in court, then the court is likely to order that the seller continue the contract
with you and allow you to continue to make your monthly payments as agreed with the seller.
