Customer Question
Last January I started...

Last January I started paying for a car from the son whos mother had died. The car was in her hame. I tried to register it twice. The MVP said he had to get the car registered in his name so he could get a title for the car. I have heard every excuse in the book and I still am waiting for the title. I have the car sitting in my driveway. My girl friend who is related by marriage said she gave him 1200 dollars for the car. I have given her 200 dollars, and still owe her 800 dollars. I stopped paying her until I get the title. I have been very patient but now enough is enough. She will not give me his number. I really want this resolved so i can get it registered. I don't know how to proceed.Is this something you can help me with?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Florida, 2001 Toyota RAV 4

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I am sorry about your situation. I think based on the dollars involved it makes more sense for you to file a lawsuit in small claims court for breach of contract. He needs to either refund the money paid or transfer title.

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.
