we moved out of our house cause the houses foundation was messed up and water started coming inside house. Well the lady offered us to buy her trailer from her family so they can move to the valley to watch after her sick father n law. Well we agreed to sign papers saying that we are buying and we are paying $1000 for this trailer. She wanted 4000 for deposit. Which we didn't have, but she continued to give us the key so they can hurry and move.we gave her 1000 and they moved with that. Well 3 months after and we still haven't gotten any paper. We have all receipts. But in beginning she took off 500 due to no back door entrance. But she randomly added it back cause she said we never paid 4000 for deposit, which we told her we didn't have. So far we had to fix the wire to dryer cause washer and dryer we're on opposite sides of trailer. We we're without a stove for 3 days cause the wire to the stove blew out. And we had to change the whole wiring out. The roof has no installation so during day everybody is SUPER hot. We can feel heat on the ceiling of trailer. Well she still is refusing to get any papers signed. She says text messages are as good as papers. And I just dont agree
More information is needed to evaluate this situation. You need to consult in person with an experienced and seasoned lawyer in your area. A local attorney will be more familiar with the lay of the land and tendencies of local Courts and Judges. An experienced local attorney can evaluate what evidence, statements or identifications are likely to be admitted at an arbitration, mediation, administrative hearing, preliminary hearing or trial. They can also provide an assessment of the compensation, consequences and/or potential outcome of the issue(s) involved.
Many counties have Legal Aid offices staffed with attorneys to assist the general public with a wide range of legal issues. Many civil and family law courts have “self-help” departments with staff available to assist the general public. Legal assistance at these locations is generally free or available on a sliding scale basis, depending on your ability to pay. You should also check with your local Law School and see if they operate a Community Legal Clinic, staffed by Law Students and supervised by licensed attorneys.
This is not legal advice! You need to speak to a attorney who is licensed in your state for legal advice. I strongly recommend you make an appointment with a competent and experienced attorney in your area, who can take time to carefully evaluate and explain all options available. This is merely suggestions for you to think about in discussing your situation with the local attorney.
