  1. 1. to avoid the hassles(possible lawsuits) next time, BETTER paperwork on your part. Contract, payment record, security lien on the car.

IF the title is in your name, you are merely taking possession of your car. How will you explain why you did it when the debtor reports it stolen? He said/you said???

If the title is still in your name, you actually have more leverage. The car is still legally yours. If you have any questions feel free to email me, I own my own repossession company.

A written contract is easy to enforce. You must follow any guidelines stated in the contract once the breach of contract has been done. If it is a simple matter of they have not paid for the car as stated in the contract you can demand payment in full and if they don't pay in full reposess it. If it is a case of sellers remorse then there's nothing you can do. You may need to file a lawsuit for breach of contract depending on how they breached your written contract. An attorney can help you make sure you are doing everything legally.
