In Florida you cannot enter a garage even if the door is open if the garage is attached. If it is a carport, you are open game.
That is B&E if you ask me.
It's not B & E if the door is already open, because there was no "B" to the "E". Maybe a criminal justice course could help you with this.
However, different states have different laws pertaining to this. Before you issue a blanket statement of yes or no, you should refer to which state you're asking about.
And I don't think you are accurate on Floridas law.
In Fl you cannot have a breach of the peace during a repossesion. the repo man cannot enter a dwelling to get the car. That means even if garage door is open.
However, possession is 9/10ths of the law. Your car is still gone no matter what kind of legal action is taken against the repo company.
Your car may be gone, but you still have your rights. Sue the driver and the tow company and file complaints with the BBB, Consumer Protection, and the FTC. The tow driver broke the law.
No, repo persons can not enter your residence without permission and an attached garage is your property.
No, a repo man can enter your driveway but if the car is in a locked garage they do not have the right to enter without your permission. This rule applies to your home as well.
They can, but its not legal. Repo men have no legal authority to enter your gated property or your home without your concent to get a vehicle. If they do so you are entitled to call the police and press charges for trespass.
NO, THAT IS TRESPASSING IN ANY STATE
Mailmen have a legal authority to trespass upon private property to deliver mail - in accordance with Federal Law. However, they do not have the authority to enter any structure, that is Breaking-and-entering. More-so, no person has the authority to enter a structure without a warrant or exigent circumstances.
It can be aslong as they have permission to enter the home they cannot enter without permission or they can be arrested for breaking and entry
no no no
The car can only be repossessed from a locked garage if the car is spotted in the garage from a window or a crack, but the repo company cannot enter the garage if the car was not visibly spotted.
The police cannot enter onto private business property without the owner's permission in Arizona. They must obtain a warrant to do so, if they do not receive permission.
If they have a search warrant, then yes, they can. Also, if they have reason to believe that someone is in danger, or that a criminal is in the home, then they can enter the home without the owner's permission.
If you enter without permission, yes, or it may be a criminal trespass. The key, used without permission, is simply a burglar's tool.
Age 17 with parents' permission, 18 without.
Your alternatives are, you can make a big stink about how he got into your garage or you can just face the fact that the lending institution wanted their vehicle back. If you lock up the vehicle and prevent the lending institution from getting their vehicle, it's effectively theft. If you insist on your right to hide the vehicle, the bank would go after you for theft. Be grateful that everything ended without you going to jail. You'll still be required to pay the difference between the outstanding loan amount and the income from the auction of the vehicle, but you're not locked up. Don't let people convince you that you can keep what isn't yours. It will just get you into trouble.
Not without a warrant or just cause.
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 ........
Not without a court order.
No, a juvenile cannot enter into such an agreement and the repossession agent could be held legally accountable for attempting/taking part in such action.
Yes its against the law.
Only in an emergency.
Yes. As a matter of fact, Repo Men will more than often be very sneaky while repossessing a vehicle. They can't take your vehicle off the property without telling you, they can't enter if your car is parked in the garage, and they can't open a gate to get it without your permission. So they will often wait until your vehicle is out in the open. For example: If your car is parked on the curb in front of your house, or if you're at Taco Bell and the car is parked outside in the parking lot... They will follow you and wait for a time they can get it without you giving them any trouble. It's totally legal for them to take your vehicle when you're unaware. Repo Men are contracted or hired by the true owner of the vehicle, whether it be the bank, a person, etc...
No , Not without a written and sworn Warrant from a Federal Judge.
Yes, a landlord can enter a tenants bedroom without permission during an inspection. However, in most lease contracts, they have to give the renter a 24-hour notice for inspection.
Most courts have ruled that you CANT enter a closed dwelling. Carport yes, garage NO. Call a local attorney NOW with the facts and any witnesses you have. Good Luck
