No. To be able to repossess any of your property, they must hold a lien on it. If they have no lien on it, they have no right to repossess. Their only option is to take you to court.

Yes, the repo man can still recover the vehicle. The term charge off only describes the status of your account with a financial institution. It doesn't resolve that actual lien that the financial institution has on the vehicle. In other words, your name is on the title but financial institution is the owner/lienholder of the vehicle until the balance on the account has been paid off.

You're talking about trying to repossess it from the repossessor? Short answer, no. You're committing theft - possibly grand theft, depending on the vehicle's value. But the repo agent coming to repossess your car isn't commiting theft. Double standard? No. The thing of it is, it is NOT your car - the lienholder is the sole rightful and legitimate owner of the vehicle. The repo man isn't taking your car away - he's reclaiming the lienholder's property after you failed to meet the terms of the finance arrangement.
