They can charge storage from day ONE of the repo. Read your contract. MERRY Christmas

That last answer is only partially correct. In California repo men are required to send you an initial notice that has to have some specific things listed in it. Its called the notice of seizure. One of the things is that they have to tell you the towing and storage fees associated with the vehicle. That first notice (which must be given within 48 hours of seizure unless part of that 48 hours is a Sat. or Sun. the they have 72 hours to notify you) allows them to charge for the first fifteen days. After that initial notice they are required to mail you another notice, certified mail, before the fifteen days expire in order to be able to to charge you for more than that first fifteen days. If they dont mail that second notice then they can only charge you for fifteen days. If they dont mail you the first notice telling you the charges then they give up any right to any compensation for storage or towing

Can the repossession company hold your personal belongings after a repossession in Massachusetts and charge you for the storage fee?

Yes they can as a matter of fact. Let's see, you defaulted on your car loan. You failed to surrender the vehicle when you could no longer pay for it. You caused the lender to send someone out in the night to find your car and recover it. You negligently left your stuff in the car, knowing you had defaulted on your note and it was likely to be repoed. You should probably have some responsibility in the matter, and pay the storage fees charged to you for keeping your property safe and undamaged.
