Oak Ridge, TN asked in Small Claims for Tennessee

Q: What can I do if I purchased a vehicle from a private party and they agreed to have it ready by a date but now refuses

We purchased a vehicle from a private party and it needed work so the private party agreed to do the work themselves and have it ready so we began paying on it. After the private party pushed the date of completion by 2 months and we really need a vehicle so we asked for a loaner or for our money back that we have paid this far so we can get another vehicle and the private party is refusing and still hasn't delivered the vehicle

A: That is a potential breach of contract. If no money has been paid, I would forget about it. Otherwise you might sue yourself in General Sessions Court. If you obtain a judgment, hire an attorney to collect.
