I am from CA , bought a car in TX a week ago, signed all paperwork, for some reason I didn't get copies of any paperwork? Gave them Navy Federal Credit Union check for the amount. It is financed thru them. I went back to CA and 5 days later arranged the shipping company to pick up the car, the driver showed up. but they didn't released the car saying the check hasn't been cleared yet. There was no agreement about the car being held until the check is cleared. Only the title. Now they changed their mind and want to hold the car as well. I feel its fishy and I want out of this deal. Also I called Navy and they said the check has been cleared and they don't understand why they hold the car. Do I have any leverage her to get out of the contract or tell them to release the car right now?
You have a substantial amount of leverage, however, they have the money and the car. You will need to hire a lawyer to get your money back.
this service is not a substitute for an in office interview and paperwork review. it does create an attorney client relationship.
You bought a car sight unseen from a far-away state?
I do not think you can get out of it, but the ONLY way you can is with an attorney.
This reply is made in response to a question posted on a public message board. This response is for general information only. This response does not create an attorney-client relationship. You have not hired the responding attorney and the responding attorney has not agreed to represent you.
I agree with Allen on this. You should have a pretty good hand. At the most basic level, if you have completed your end of the bargain by making payment for the car, then they are obligated to complete their end of the bargain and deliver. You need to get with an attorney and figure out the best plan for you going forward.
This is not legal advice and does not establish an attorney-client relationship and any of the related protections and obligations of either party. You should seek the advice of competent local counsel licensed to practice law in your state.
