I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. You purchased but put the rig in someone else's name? Why would you do that?
Can you tell me, how much did you pay for the car?
ThanksIf they refuse to return the car, you can sue them to recover the car or the money you spent on the car.You have a choice. You can use small claims court to recover money.
Small claims is a true "peoples court". The formal rules of evidence and procedure do not apply. So you can represent yourself (no need to hire a lawyer).
The process is simple enough. You head to the county court (the county where the person lives) and talk to the clerk of the court. They can get you the forms needed to start. You file the claim, serve a copy on the defendant and wait for your day in court.
In court, be prepared to tell the judge what happened, and bring in copies of any evidence that supports your case. IF there are witnesses who can testify about what happened? Have them come as well.The only hitch? The limit for small claims is $15K. So if you go this route you can only sue for $15K
OR you can hire a lawyer and sue in district court for the entire $19K
