A: If you have a purchase agreement or other contract, you would need to review the terms of your agreement. Unless there is a fraud or another bad act, the Court will generally hold both parties to the terms of the written agreement so reviewing the contract is generally one of the first places to start.

If the other party did not follow the contract, then one option is a breach of contract claim.

Depending on the value of the trailer, you may be able to bring a court action in Small Claims Court. Small Claims Court doesn't allow attorneys and is for claims of lower dollar values. There are forms and information for the Small Claims Court on the Nebraska Supreme Court's website.
