I took my van to a mechanic (who is a friend of my husband) to see what was wrong with it. He told me that I needed a new engine. I told him I would buy a new one but it would take me a couple weeks to save up the money. He offered to buy a used engine and fix my van and I could pay him with payments. I told him no that I would purchase a new not used engine. He told me OK and it was OK to leave my van there. It took a couple weeks but I did come up with the money. I recently called him to let him know and he informed me that he sold my van and received $350. He also took parts from my van and come to find out he put one of my pieces on someone's else car. He said the reason why he sold my van was because he had to space for it cause he had a lot of cars. Is it legal for him to do that?
Insufficient data. Was there a piece of paper that descried the deal you made? (I think, btw, that even if there was no piece of paper it was not legal, but without a piece of paper you would have hard time PROVING things.)
How was he able to sell the car? Did you give him the title? As previously stated you may want to take this matter to small claims court.
