Can a repo man move a vehicle by force to gain entry to the vehicle being repossessed without the owner permission?
Most of your descriptive terms are variable and could mean different things to different people. Did you see him do it??? Why do I ask?? IF you didnt see it happen, you dont know if he used "force" or not. Merry Christmas

Can a repo company enter a gated condo community and take possession of a vehicle without getting permission from the right person?
There are certain strict procedures that an automobile repossessor must follow when he is repossessing your car. The repossessor must notify the police that such vehicle is being repossessed, you did before or after the repossession has occurred. In either case, the police should know right away that the vehicle was repossessed. If this is not the case, then the vehicles like to have been stolen.
How do you resolve the situation cheaply when you can not locate your spouse who has your vehicle that is in your name only and you are not allowed to report it as being stolen?
Yes, and many people do object to their vehicles being repossessed, before and after the repossession. Unfortunately, your objection will have little effect. If you are delinquent or in default on your loan, and the vehicle was used to secure the loan, the vehicle will be repossessed. There are few legal options available to you to avoid this aside from paying the loan current.
If your car is repossessed and you want to get it back, you can contact the finance company and clear any outstanding payments. They may agree to return your vehicle to you if they have not already sold it but be warned that lenders try and sell repossessed vehicles as quickly as possible to try and recoup funds. The finance companies often sell the repossessed vehicles at a car auction. Here they can be sold…
Well, first, you'd have to explain how the repossession was illegal. There really isn't any such thing as "illegal repossession"... repossession is a legal process by which a lien holder can recovery property which does belong to them in response to a delinquency of payment or violation of the contract. A vehicle which has no grounds for repossession but was taken was not repossessed - that's theft, plain and simple, and if that's the case…
I can can be legally repossessed no matter where it goes in the USA. As long as the repossessor can find the car and identify it as the one to be repossessed. It may not be cost effective if it is a long distance unless the vehicle is of greater value than the cost of returning it and paying someone to do that. They can also wait until you return.
The dealership is not involved unless the vehicle is leased. If the dealership has repossessed a leased vehicle, it is gone; you will not get it back. If the vehicle was being purchased by loan and the lender has repossessed it, you may get it back, but you have to balance what you would owe against what you do owe. To recover a repossessed vehicle, you may have to pay the following fees: * Past…
They would normally send you statements reminding you that your balance is past due, and the vehicle could be repossessed if the matter isn't settled. The creditor normally won't inform you of when the order for repossession actually is sent out, and you won't normally be informed that your vehicle is being repossessed until the repo man shows up to claim it.
If your transmission was damaged during the towing of your repossessed vehicle which you recovered can you get the towing company or lender to pay for the damages?
Probably not. The risk was yours since towing was the logical next step for failing to meet the requirements of the loan. It was your failure to meet the requirements of the loan which led to the vehicle being repossessed which subsequently caused the vehicle to be towed. All the towing company needs to do is to prove that they used standard towing practices.
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. A recovery agent can, on behalf of the lienholder, go onto private property in order to recover the lienholder's property - with limitations. They cannot cross a locked gate, and they cannot enter a locked building.
What are your rights when it comes to a car that just has a payment for half of the remainder owed and the private party it was being bought from has repossessed it for personal reason?
If the repossession occurred in a state that does not permit self-help repossession, report the car stolen; it cannot be legally repossessed. Louisiana and Wisconsin are two of these states. If you can show legal possession of the vehicle, and on time payment, report the car stolen. It cannot be legally repossessed in any state unless the debt is delinquent. If you do not wish to involve LEO's immediately, contact the private party who "repossessed"…
The order of repossession is their authorization to enter the car. If your car is being repossessed, it means there's a lien on it, and the lienholder called for the repossession to be carried out. You don't own the car - the lienholder does, until you pay off the lienholder and they relinquish the title to you. So yes, that tow company doing the repossession has every right to enter the vehicle they're repossessing.
What happens if you do not voluntarily surrender the vehicle and you continue to hide the vehicle from being repossessed?
The lien holder can either take you to court, or the repo agency will just keep on you... if you're hiding the vehicle, it's doubtful you want to go through all the hassle just to leave it sitting idly, so you'll probably drive it somewhere at some point. If it's a high enough value vehicle, oh yeah, they'll stay on you, and the moment you leave it unoccupied in order to run into a store…
Does a car company have the right to repossess a leased vehicle if it is fully insured and all payments are on time and are you obligated to take it back if it is unlawfully repossessed?
if a vehicle is unlawfully repossesed, you can get the vehicle back, and claim back all monies you have paid, and keep the vehicle without any further payments being made as long as you have proof you were up to date You are never relieved of the responsibility of paying for a vehicle or the lease agreement simply because the vehicle was wrongly repossessed.

If you are behind on your car payments should you file bankruptcy before the vehicle is repossessed?
Before doing that, you should go to your bank and explain your situation. They might be able to take over the loan at a lower interest rate. That way your payments may become smaller. If that doesn't work, maybe call whoever has your laon and explain your situation, see if there's anything they can do. * No. Bankruptcy should be the last resort for a debtor. Be that as it may, bankruptcy will not keep…

If your car is repossessed in Illinois and the lender wants full payment can you file for bankruptcy within a certain amount of days so that your able to keep your car?
Bankruptcy does not prevent a vehicle from being repossessed. If the debtor/borrower wants to keep the vehicle they must reaffirm the loan with the lender. Furthermore, new bankruptcy laws require the borrower to repay the entire amount of the loan and applicable fees rather than the discrepancy between the loan and the amount recovered in the sale of the vehicle.
Then they'd be enlisted in the Air Force, and still have their car repossessed. Addendum: It appears as if the question contributor is asking if it is legal for a repossession agent to take the vehicle from a service member. If so, the answer is yes. Many repossion agents are licensed to recover from military installations, and even those who are not do obtain permission from the Provost Marshall to operate there. The bigger issue…
If a mother owned a car with full coverage insurance and her 22 year old son with a license took it without permission and had an accident would it be covered?
Can someone put your car on their insurance policy without your permission and without you being listed as a driver?
Who knows. Even if they do, you have no insurance coverage and they have wasted their money. The insurance company can not and will not pay any claims arising out of any incidents with a vehicle that does not belong to to the policyholder. Purchase your own insurance. It is a legally binding contract in which you state that you own the vehicle and that you have listed all household members and/or drivers and that…
