Can they take your car from de garage closed in Florida?

The reason a car is being repossessed is due to non payment (as promised in written and signed agreement). Until the buyer or lessee has clear title to the vehicle, they have no rights in ownership. Housing a car you don't own in a locked garage is illegal - it is then considered 'stolen' and with the proper court documents, the agency can enter and remove the vehicle.

Where can the repo company legally repo cars?

Anywhere except Federal Property (unless they have the necessary permits and licensing) and Native American Reservations (unless they have the permission of the tribe). So, pretty much anywhere. The single exception is that they may not enter a closed building such as a garage, however, if the can successfully hook the car from outside the garage, most states will turn a blind eye to the vehicle being dragged out an open door. And, if you have the vehicle closed in the garage, the driver will attempt to request you surrender it. If you refuse, likely as not he will return with a replevin and a law enforcement officer to take possession of the vehicle. Just give it up.


Do repo people have to ID who they are when they come on private property?

Repo people are the scum of the earth. They are nothing more than prostitutes for finance companies. Yes, the can follow you as long as they do NOT try to physically remove you from your vehicle. That would be an assault. If they enter your private property, you can tell them to leave, if they don't, that is criminal tresspassing. Anytime you park your vehicle, either have it parked in a closed garage or have it blocked by other vehicles. Repo folks cannot enter a closed garage (at your house) or remove any vehicles blocking your vehicle. Repo folks can have keys cut to your vehicle WITHOUT your permission. Repo folks can tell you by law, you must give up your vehicle to them...THAT IS A LIE I am in the towing business and they cause so much trouble for towing companies. If you get out of your unattended vehicle for just an instance, consider your vehicle GONE ........
