No one has the right to enter your property to repo a vehicle. I your vehicle is out in the street, then its fair game. If you see the repo man coming but has not hooked up to your vehicle, you legally still have possession of the vehicle. Once the vehicle has made contact with the truck the vehicle belongs to him.

How would a repo man get a vehicle that is behind a locked gate?

They wouldn't be able to legally. However the gate would have to LOCKED and not just closed. It would need a lock and/or chain that would prohibit them from opening up the gate. I don't know the exact procedure that you could do legally but I would contact an attorney if I were you.

Can the repo man take your car if you leave your car locked behind a gate in your backyard?

No.Not if the gate is locked. They would have to get a warrent. * The repo man will not come with a warrant. The Sheriff might if the bank has sued and a court has issued a Writ of Replevin. They can come on your property and as long as they do no damage they can take the car.


Laws vary by jurisdiction... they can never force their way into a locked building, enter any vehicle other than the one they're repossessing, or open a locked gate... in most jurisdictions, they can open an unlocked gate, so long as they do it within the laws requiring peaceful repossession.
