First I'm in Las Vegas, NV.My grandfather gave me a pick up when my car broke down right in front of his eyes. He told me that he was signing the pickup over to me and then it would be my pickup now, and that he would ask me time from time to borrow it, but it was up to me to say yes. The following days; he went with me to get the pickup serviced, but the shop he went to didn't charge him a dime. He already asked me that same day if we could get the pickup smogged the very next week on my day off Wednesday, I said yes. The next few days; he continued to call me reminding me about the smog the next week. Wednesday came and he called me early that morning at 7 and said he was going over to a friends house to mow her lawn and said go back to sleep I will call you later. Later that day around 3 he called me and asked if I was busy and I reminded him that my wife had an interview at 345 so I was he said okay fine I will let you go. He called me later that night and said that I could go get the car smogged if I wanted to by myself so I agreed. The next day, he calls and says you did nothing I asked of you on Wednesday we were suppose to get the pickup smogged and you said you were busy and your just like your no good sister, he said you know what, how about next Tuesday we go get it smogged out of frustration I told him I was going to get it smogged, and he said you already got it smogged and I said yeah because I was getting angry and wasn;t thinking. he got angry and said you never listen and now I want my pickup back, and I yelled back at him no grandpa you already signed it over to me and it's mine and hung up in his face. Since then he has constantly called me everyday leaving voicemail after voicemail wanting his stuff back finally about a week later he asked for everything from the pickup and the $400 he gave me because he wanted to help me with the car insurance. So I gave everything back to him. Now weeks later, he says he is going to take me to court and get an attorney so he can get the pickup back. My question is, since I already have title in my hand and he already signed the title over to me in late june. Do I have anything to worry about?
No; he told me after he signed the title over to me; that he would help me with the smog and that he wanted to help with the insurance; which he gave me $400 for, but was returned when he asked for all the things in the pick up and the $400 back.
Alll he told me when signing over the pick up to me when the car broke down that same day was, " I am givng this pick up to you and that I should have done it sooner, but I may need to borrow it in the future when and if I get my license back, but it will be up to you, and its still yours."
I see; so what your saying is because he didn't give any circumstances before he signed the pickup over to me. And he freely gave it to me because my car broke down. Then I am safe, but what is a legal cause of action if I may ask?
Awesome thank you so much for the help I appreciate it; One more question if I may ask and then I will go ahead and submit the "excellent service review".
He doesn't have any legal ground to sue me right because he willfully gave me the truck an d I didn't steal it.
