Well the Agreement that we have been working on isn't set in stone, we are still working on it. He just keeps changiing his mind and stalling. I am living in the house and it is finally listed with a realtor and at the moment we have tenants who's rent covers most of the mortgage. He is sharing the costs of utilities and cable. And he's stopped by on a few occassions to take things he wanted when I wasn't in the house.
The first agreement was he would pay me out of closing, then when I made my changes to the agreement which includes all of the other property as well as who is liable for the bills and so on, He came forward to say he wanted to buy me out and presented me with an offer. He then realized he would have to refinace the loan into his name and realized his credit wasn't good enough. So we were back to square one. He just seems to sneak in and take things and I can see that he has No intent to pay me back. He has bought an Iphone 5 and has gone on a few weekend getaways leaving reciepts here when he stopped by. But anyway. I just cant' get him to see that I see the biggest asset as the boat with a 14K value, as it was paid for in full when purchased. And that he was just put on the deed three years ago and my offer to give him 50% of the equity After my initial investment is returned ( he signed and had notorized that agreement) BUT 50% of everything else needs to be agreed upon. And he isnt' willing to budge.. So I thought maybe small claims is the way to go.
