I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.

It sounds like he was pulling a scam on you. The only way to pursue your money is to sue him. You can do so in small caims court. You do not need an attorney to sue in small claims court. YOu will have to pay filing fees and service fees, but they will be added to the judgment if you win.

This is a fairly simple case. You file a simple breach of contract claim.The clerk of the court will have the forms that you need.

Here is more information on the process:

You may find that once you file the claim that he finds the title.
