Can a vehicle be taken by the police for delinquent payments.
This depends on where you are.If you are in an area where it is illegal to hide the vehicle from the finance company you will get arrested, the vehicle will be impounded and the finance company notified.Added: If you have been concealing the vehicle from the creditor and at the same time not beein making payments, the creditor may well have filed a stolen vehicle report with the police.You have wrongfully deprived the creditor of their property (i.e.: THEY own it - not you). If the vehicle turns up in the police records as stolen they will not only confiscate the vehicle - you could be facing criminal charges as well.
Call the police and/or the company that owns the vehicle
No, They would have to be behind on the car payment The above is not always the case. It can depend on what the car was impounded for. If it was impounded for something like drugs where asset forfeiture comes into play then yes the finance company can take the car regardless of payment status. The reason for this is because there are times when the authorities will tell the finance company that if the vehicle is returned to the registered owner the finance company will lose their rights to it as well. The finance company does not have to hand their collateral back to you if it means loss of collateral, it is their car after all.
It sounds like a civil issue to me... you might contact an attorney or your local law enforcement agency to make sure though.
It can be impounded by the police, a repo man, or for being parked illegally on private property. It can be forfeited if you fail to make payments on time and the bank repossesses the vehicle.
If the payments ARE being made on time, and if they are being made by YOU, the cosignor should have no rights to the vehicle. The police are going to look at whose name is on the title to determine who keeps the car.
It depends on the locality. In this state, no. A finance company can send out a repo agent at any time if the customer's payments are past due, and the police are not (normally) involved.
So call The Police immediately. And also call your dealership cause you might of gotten it repoed. Behind on your payments?
You should report the theft immediately to the police and to the car owner's insurance company.
Report the accident to the police. Request that the police provide hit and run driver info to your insurance company. This is the only legal way to do what you are asking where I live.
So people can easily recognize the vehicle as a police vehicle.
I am not sure it is possible but my only suggestion is to call your local Police Department and find out
No. A commercial vehicle is defined as a motor vehicle used for public transportation or cargo transportation. Generally, A vehicle is designated "commercial" when it is titled or registered to a company. A taxi cab is a commercial vehicle. A police car is not.
You are not allowed to sell a vehicle in a police compound because the police will not release the vehicle. You will need to contact the police department and see how much is owed on the car to remove it from impound.
If a police officer takes custody of a vehicle, it is usually said he impounds the vehicle.
It depends on what you mean by police vehicle. A vehicle with blue (or red depending on the locality) lights, a siren, and police markings? No, that would be illegal, at least in my state, and probably all others. In Tennessee, it's illegal to have blue lights or any police insignia on a vehicle unless it's an authorized law enforcement vehicle. You can however, purchase a vehicle with the same engine, suspension, and other specs as a police vehicle. A friend of mine bought a police spec vehicle a couple of years ago with everything except the blue lights and police insignia.
Ask the driver or owner of the vehicle. They are required to give you (and the police) that information at the time of the accident.AnswerOn an accident report, the police officer lists the insurance information. Contact the police department who responded to the scene to determine how to obtain a copy of the report.
Call the police, file a stolen vehicle report(I would think that would be common sense). If you're willing to spend more money to find the vehicle, after reporting it to the police, you can attempt to hire a reposession company to search for the car provided you have some idea where the car is.
yes if the police want to they will
If it was their fault, their insurance company will cover the damages of your vehicle. I would hope that the person at fault has filed the claim already but you need to make certain. I also hope that a police report was done at the time of the accident.
No, they cannot. Call the police.
If...it was impounded by the city or state for moving / non-moving violations. try calling the local PD. The tow could have been ordered by a bank/finance company if the loan payments are in arrears. The tow might have been ordered by a property owner if you park on their property without permission. Towing companies are obliged to inform the local police that they have towed or will tow a vehicle. Otherwise it looks like they are stealing the vehicle.
If it is really stolen by someone and not simply in possession of the lendee. The owner of the vehicle is the only one who can report a vehicle stolen, not the lender. But if the car is taken to the tow companys and yard and is now "missing" then the tow company can report the missing car since they had it in their possession. The first place the police will come to though is your house. The police will not come to your house it is a civil matter.The tow company cannot report the vehicle stolen it is not their vehicle to report stolen.
Yes. They can. If the vehicle is in your posession when they stopped you.
