Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Do you have anything in writing that outlines the agreement -- or is it all unwritten/verbal?
Ok, but do you have a written agreement with his wife that says she'll transfer the vehicle if the loan is paid off, etc.?
.....or was this just a verbal agreement?
If there is nothing in writing to validate this agreement, it could be very difficult to enforce it.
However, the only thing you can do at this juncture would be to try to get something in writing that says it was agreed that if you pay off the vehicle, the title would be transferred. If you can get something in writing, you could file suit to compel transfer of the title and use that agreement as proof of the terms of the transfer.
However, if you cannot get anything in writing, the only real thing you can do is file suit to enforce an oral contract, outline the terms to the judge , and ask him/her to find that a contract was created and that it is enforceable by you......and ask for specific performance to compel the title to be transferred to you.
