From what he says HW wants me to cone back down and do another contract so and find another bank to finance me. I hasn't yet been there because u work and I told him that. He is harassing me calling every five minutes telling me that we have a problem and etc. I dont know what to do because I wanna keep my vehicle

What should I do if I already signed a contract I drove off then 5 days later he tells me I wasn't approved but he was going to get me another company that will help me get a loan. I been going thru this since and now he wants the car back but I still have my contract. Do he have the right to take my car back. Plus he has been harassing me

Thank you for your follow up.

We do not provide any type of legal advice or legal services, just general legal information.

I cannot comment on your specific case, but unfortunately, generally if the financing is not approved, than the buyer would either have to pay off the entire purchase price of the vehicle, find financing or return the vehicle to the dealer.

If buyer doesn't pay off the car, obtains financing somewhere else and doesn't return the vehicle, then the dealer would send repossession company to reposes the vehicle.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and good luck!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
