We purchase a Vehicle 3 months ago and now the owner is telling us we have to redo and sign a new contract or he will not send our License plates because one of his sales man made a deal that he shouldn’t have made can they do that 3ths later it does it sound like a bait switch ... they also took our other vehicle as down payment
Read the contract you have already signed. It should have language regarding when a party may be excused from performance. If the matter is as simple as the dealership or its employee making a mistake, then in many states the contract remains enforceable. While it can be a basis for voiding a contract, a unilateral mistake is usually not a defense unless the non-mistaken party had knowledge of the mistake and signed anyways. A local attorney will be able to review the current contract and advise you further. If the dealership is now holding your property as a result and refuses to give it back, they may be committing criminal conversion. Your attorney may be able to draft a demand letter threatening the appropriate remedies that will be taken if they do not turn your property back over. Similarly, you may have a claim under your jurisdiction’s consumer protection laws.
