Galion, OH asked in Consumer Law and Real Estate Law for Ohio

Q: Paid for trailer, we have title in our hands. Previous owner won't give keys yet and keeps changing date. Ignoring us.

On phone owner said July first. Leading up to June 2nd she kept saying June 17th. On June 2nd we handed her cash at the BMV, and we immediately got the title in our name and we have the title in our hands. June 17th she had an issue on her new home and their closing date for her new home. 

We were very nice and gave her another week because her closing date on her new home moved to 19th,and her movers to the 20th. 

We wanted to coordinate as we are staying with my in-laws, and we have a uhaul filled with our stuff paying $35 a day. However she responded that originally she said July 1st and for us to leave her alone. And has since ignored text, phone calls ect. There is no signed agreement of any date except the title that's in our name now. It's one more week, but $35 a day for uhaul, we already paid for trailer insurance. We are even willing to pay difference in electric, or lot rent ect for her. But she is ignoring us. Time is ticking away. She isn't a tenant who rented.
