Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Do you know why he would not want the car in his name and to take it back if he paid? Is he doing this since he knows you will maintain the insurance? Do you know where the vehicle is and do you have a key?
Thank you. At this time, you are the legal and rightful owner of the vehicle. It is in your name and if you know where it is, can take your own car back, as long as it does not cause any problems or disturb the peace. It makes no sense for him to not want to take the car back, since he paid and if you take it back, you can then keep it or sell it and take the proceeds, since again, it is in your name. Maybe if you can make this clear to him, that he will be losing the car, he will put the car in his name. If he refuses and you can not get the car back, then you can call the police and see if they will get involved and if they will not ( since they may since this is civil, not criminal), then you can sue him for the return of the vehicle.
