Legal Question in Real Estate Law in California

My 5th Wheel RV

Last year my boyfriend and I bought an RV. The RV is in my name, however, he has made all the payments. We are no longer together, and I want to ensure he continues to make the payments, since he is still living in the RV. What can I do to ensure he continues to make the payemnts?

Re: My 5th Wheel RV

I would say the most obvious thing is for you to sell it to him - get rid of whatever legal interest you have.

You do not say which of you appears on the title or which of you signed the loan papers; also you didn't say if you are still on speaking terms. All of this will obviously have an important bearing upon whether you can just get yourself 100% out of the deal easily, or not.

You also didn't say whether you put any money into the original purchase that you'd like to get back.

Although as a 5th wheel this unit is not self-driveable, it would still be considered a motor vehicle in California, and you may have some public liability exposure if he doesn't keep it insured, not to mention property damage worries.
