Can a repossession agent take a vehicle without waiting for the borrower to show proof that payments have been made?

Yes. It is perfectly legal for a repossession agent to take possession of a vehicle when they are acting on behalf of the lender. The repossession agency does not have the option of allowing the borrower to retain the vehicle even though proof is presented that payments have been rendered. Such issues are strictly between the borrower and the lender. The lender and/or court being the only parties that can rescind the repossession action.

Pay the note or lose the car. The vehicle may be recovered from any location that is discovered provided the repossession agent does not violate the FFDCP Act or break the peace. If the debtor breaks the peace, that is on the debtor; many go to jail for such behavior.If the repossession agent is not able to notify the debtor that he has secured the vehicle, the agent is legal bound to contact the jurisdictional law enforcement agency that a repossession has taken place with 24 hours of securing the vehicle. Most contact law enforcement as they are driving away from the recovery.

Legally, no. This would fall under wrongful incarceration or kidnapping. The repo agent can block the vehicle in until that person gets out and then hook the unit.

If the police are called in this situation, someone is likely to go to jail for breach of peace, and the repo agent has a legally binding notice of repossession.

When you purchased the car, you may have received a lien title from the state. This is not a clear title of ownership. The lender in essence still owns the vehicle, at least part of it.

But, if you are a repossession company or agent, you should already know this.

In the event the possessor of a vehicle under repossession were to destroy a vehicle to prevent that repossession, he could then be charged with malicious destruction of private property and hindering a lender.
