I have text messages where he stated we would work out rent after the water and plumbing was fixed. Now he is refusing to move forward fixing problems till I pay two months rent that was not our agreement what grounds do I have to stand on?

I know this doesn't answer your question, but if they find the person who stole your vehicle and charge them, you can demand restitution for all damage to the vehicle and I believe towing and storage services. Upon conviction the person would be required to pay you or face incarceration.
There is a larceny by fraud charge that may apply, but it is really more of a civil issue. If the vehicle is $10,000 or less, small claims court may be an inexpensive way to get a judgement on the person and gain access to any assets they may have. Boeheim Freeman Law... 918-884-7791

You can search to see if a mechanic's lien has been filed on your property by searching in the land records division of the Court house where the property is located. There is a fee for copies. If the creditor makes an attempt to foreclose on the mechanics lien you should be notified by a summons.
The deficiency balance that is still owed can be collected by the creditor in State Court by receiving a judgment and then collecting on the judgment with a wage garnishment. In Oklahoma up to 24% of a debtor's wages can be garnished for this type of debt. deficiency balances on...Read more »
