Purchased a car from lot that filed bankruptcy

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Georgia

I live in NC, purchased a car in GA. The car lot from which I purchased the car has file bankruptcy. The finance company of the car that I traded in has not received the pay off from these people. They are telling me that I am still liable for this. What do I need to do to get this resolved? I can't afford to pay for a car that I no longer possess.

Answer

Based on what you say here, you could probably file suit gainst both of them (or at least threaten to do so) in small claims court or in regular court--and they can fight it out; filing in small claims court is easier and requires no attorney...you could try to collect all of the costs and damages that you suffered due to their behavior...
