Q: I sold my truck to a buddy of mine and he’s paying it off but is 6 months behind on payments what do I do?
There was no contract just a hand shake.
A: You can take him to small claims court, or not. You don't mention if you signed over the title to him. I recommend you consult a lawyer with all of the facts because if not, you increase the odds of not obtaining a good result.
A: I agree, this is likely a matter for small claims court. However, there are some measures you can take before hand to get him to pay prior to taking him to court.
