This NC laws from the UCC but it is fairly universal among the states. Notice it says "secured party"? If you are not listed as LIENHOLDER on the title, have no written contract, have not made a UCC filing with the state, how do you show the debtor is in DEFAULT and the collateral should be repossessed? Yes, verbal contracts are upheld IF there is evidence of said verbal contract. PAYMENT RECORDS are the usual way to show that some kind of agreement was being carried out. § 25-9-609. Secured party's right to take possession after default. (a)Possession; rendering equipment unusable; disposition on debtor's premises. - After default, a secured party: (1) May take possession of the collateral; and (2) Without removal, may render equipment unusable and dispose of collateral on a debtor's premises under G.S. 25-9-610. (b) Judicial and nonjudicial process. - A secured party may proceed under subsection (a) of this section: (1) Pursuant to judicial process; or (2) Without judicial process, if it proceeds without breach of the peace. (c) Assembly of collateral. - If so agreed, and in any event after default, a secured party may require the debtor to assemble the collateral and make it available to the secured party at a place to be designated by the secured party which is reasonably convenient to both parties. (1961, c. 574; 1965, c. 700, s. 1; 1975, c. 862, s. 7; 2000-169, s. 1.)

What is a verbal agreement?

Three Elements of a Verbal Contract In order to be considered valid, a verbal contract must contain three elements: offer, acceptance, and consideration. • Offer: The person making the offer in a verbal contract must communicate their intent to enter into a contract. A verbal contract is not considered valid if all parties do not agree to the terms of the offer. Also, verbal contracts are only valid for a specified period of time and not indefinitely. • Acceptance: A verbal contract is not valid until the offer is accepted. The acceptance of a verbal contract occurs when the person to whom the contract is offered voluntarily indicates agreement to its terms and conditions. • Consideration: In addition to an offer and acceptance, verbal contracts must contain consideration. This means that each side must give the other something of value for the agreement to be binding. In most verbal contracts, this is an exchange of money, such as a down payment. However, in some cases, it is not money but a promise that is exchanged. Verbal Contract Law Verbal contracts are a convenient and commonly used form of agreement between two parties. However, the main problem with a verbal contract is that if any problems should arise and there were no witnesses to the agreement, the case is reduced to one party''s word against another''s. Even if verbal contract law is followed, a verbal contract is often easily contested. The best way to ensure that your contract will be binding is to consult with a legal professional who can help you understand the law and determine your options. If you are involved in a dispute over a verbal contract, a qualified contract lawyer can help you maximize your legal rights and interests .

In Kentucky is a verbal agreement legally binding?

A properly written contract, signed by both parties, is tangible evidence of an agreement that is indisputably "legally binding".Generally, the problem with verbal agreements is that there is no evidence they exist. There is only a "he said, and he said" situation. In order to bind the other party to a verbal agreement, the moving party would need to bring an action in a court of equity and provide the judge with enough outside evidence that there was a verbal contract between the parties and the other party has breached it. Without compelling outside evidence such as witnesses, the judge cannot find that any contract existed between the parties.
