GRETNA – A rent to own company is suing a customer who it claims contracted to purchase a vehicle, but later defaulted on the contract.

TLC Rent-To-Own LLC filed suit against Angela M. Allen, GoAuto LLC and WJC Auto Body & Paint LLC in the 24th Judicial District Court on Nov. 7, 2014.

TLC Rent-To-Own alleges that on Aug. 2, 2013 it entered into a contract with Allen for her to purchase a 2008 Pontiac G6. The plaintiff contends that the defendant failed to maintain insurance on the vehicle and make timely payments and as a result it repossessed the vehicle on May 16, 2014.

In addition, the plaintiff asserts that Allen was involved in accident with the car on Nov. 8, 2013 and that her auto insurer made a payment to an auto body shop for repairs to the vehicle. However, TLC Rent-To-Own maintains the vehicle was not completely repaired. TLC Rent-To-Own asserts that Allen owes $1,360 in rental fees, $494 in repossession fees, $119 in late fees and $306.61 for damages to the vehicle.

The defendant is accused of breach of contract.

Damages are sought by the plaintiff in the amount of $4,984.61 plus fees and expenses.

TLC Rent-To-Own is represented by attorney Theresa M. Piglia of Metairie.

The case has been assigned to Division N Judge Stephen D. Enright Jr.

Case no. 744-076.
