Legal Eagle, Expert

Hello! Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney ready to answer your questions with top-quality service. Just a few quick things before we get started:
1. I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with your legal issue. I know it can be frustrating; however, we can get this resolved quickly;
2. Sadly, this website says I cannot represent customers, but I can certainly answer the questions you have!

Is it the bank that is delaying?

Customer
It's the finance company that financed the vehicle

Got it! Do they have a physical branch at all?

Customer
They have offices in Texas and California

Legal Eagle, Expert

Understood! So you're just wondering what it is you can do here, correct?

Customer
Correct because my calling them is not working and my vehicle has been paid off since July 12th

Customer
No , I just need to know if I need legal representation to get my title because I know it doesn't take this long to get it after you pay off a vehicle

I'm so sorry to hear about your situation!

I'm flattered, but the problem is the site doesn't let us represent customers. I'm very sorry.

I don’t have any specific contacts; however, I can do the next best thing.

With that said, you may not need a lawyer if you have the right tools and knowledge.

This appears to be a breach of contract. In Alabama, “a plaintiff alleging a breach of contract "must prove (1) the existence of a valid contract binding the parties in the action, (2) his own performance under the contract, (3) the defendant's nonperformance, and (4) damages." S. Med. Health Sys., Inc. v. Vaughn , 669 So. 2d 98, 99 (Ala. 1995); Goostree v. Liberty Nat'l Life Ins. Co., 421 F.Supp.3d 1268 (N.D. Ala. 2019)

This applies regardless of whether the agreement was written or done orally. Typically, the aggrieved party is entitled to be returned to the same position they were in before the breach. You have some options you can explore:

  1. The quicker, informal option is to send a demand for performance. Performance being the payment of some money or engaging in some required action. You can find breach of contract templates online for cheap: https://www.etsy.com/listing/660888236/breach-of-contract-template
  2. You can file a lawsuit in your local court. If you’ve already sent a bunch of letters, then the truth is this is the only way to compel them to do anything.
Please let me know if this has answered your question fully. Feel free to return here with additional questions or comments if you need more information, and thank you sincerely ***** ***** question and for using Just Answer as your source for legal information.


Customer
why did I have to pay five dollars for you to not give me any answers .?

Legal Eagle, Expert

I'm very sorry if you felt like I didn't give you any answers. If you're looking for representation, the $5 fee is too modest for me to do so, and the website terms don't allow me to do so anyway. I'm very sorry. I would take a moment to review what I put because there is good stuff in there. I understand your frustrated and this has to be very hard.
