Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hi Philip, yes we signed agreement in Oct. of 2010 - unfortunately I never got a copy of it - trusted his word ( my mistake).
Written agreement stated that this "contract" would only last 2 years. I have asked him now to provide me with a copy, but of course he won't knowing that I would most likely use it against him.
I thought about cancelling ins. and closing bank acct. to prevent future payments but understand that it would hurt me in the long term, especially if i am looking to purchase property.
Yes it makes sense; the problem is he might deny it or not even acknowledge it - he is not trustworthy.
Can I call the repo services and have them pick up the car from him? Since the car belongs to me on all papers...
Do I have any other options? Besides dragging him to court?
Philip you did well!
Yes, I am the sole owner. One more question - IF he does sue me in TX - can the court order me to pay him the amount that he's already paid on the loan?
This is a 6 yr. loan and he's been making pmnts for the past 3 yrs.
You've been a great help! and I very much appreciate your advice.
I am definitely understand that I will not profit from this, since my only wish to either remove my name off the loan or actually take this car into my own possession and handle it from there.
I will let you know if I have any more questions.
You have been very helpful. Thank you
