My question involves a repossession in the State of: Ohio.
I had a legal agreement with a "friend" to take over the lease payments on a vehicle. I missed one payment and last night, the car was taken out of my driveway. I have a serious problem ~ I am on five different heart medications and ALL my medicine is in that car, along with my cell phone, camera equipment, other important documents, and quite a sum of cash. Obviously, I had no idea this was going to happen and just was too tired to unload the car last night.
This "friend" is now being VERY vindictive and absolutely refuses to give me my personal belongings. This person has said that an inventory will be made of my belongings and I should have my lawyer contact their lawyer. There is no consideration at all given to my medical condition and my need for the medicine.
I am trying to find out what my rights are in this situation and am preparing a document to file in court (I don't have a lawyer), but I need some type of Case Law or statute in Ohio to cite to support my position. I'm not saying I don't owe the money, and I don't want the car back, I just want my property, and this person has no right to it. I'm afraid I'll never get it back.
Thank you in advance for your time. I hope you can help me.
