Yes a private person can have a car repo'd but if the car was stolen like you stated then you must report this to your local police and let the piece of trash that stole it go to jail.

Yes, you can have a car repoed. BUT if its been 'stolen" as you posted, wouldn't that be putting a repoman in danger ???That's why very few repo cos. do "private party repos." few people take the time to get the paperwork right, ect. Then they want it done for almost nothing. Its best to leave the "stolen" cars to the cops and the financing to the lenders.

A car that is actually YOURS cannot be repossessed, as it's paid off. If you have a vehicle being repossessed, they're able to do this because it's actually the finance company which owns that vehicle and possesses their title.

They cannot cross a locked gate, and they cannot enter a locked building.

When you cosign for anyone you are taking 100% responsibility for the payments on that car. If the person that gets the car doesn't keep their payments up it will be repossessed by the bank with an option for the cosigner to take over payments or sell the car and pay back the loan. Marcy

No. That would not only result in a breach of peace charge, but probably trespass and tampering with private property as well.

If you have had a car repossessed, you have not kept up with the payments. You probably still owe money on the repossessed car. In these circumstances, the fact is that you can not afford to purchase another car and would not be able to obtain the finance to do so.
