Can you be charged repo fee if car was not repossessed?
No. Keep in mind,however, that there are several different ways to view repossessions. There are voluntary and involuntary repossessions. There are standard and ordered repossessions. It depends largely on the laws of your state. By and large, though, if a repo company has done nothing to recover a vehicle, they cannot charge a fee. If you are the customer, check your contract. If you are the debtor, look up the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, and the repossession laws of your state.
