If you were in DEFAULT of the contract when the car was repoed, the car is in possession of the leinholder and NO, they do NOT have to tell you anything except HOW much you must pay to redeem the car. AFTER you pay whatever amount they specify, then they will make the arrangements for you to pick up the car. Read your contract. Look for a clause under the DEFAULT section that goes something like this" Whenever the lender feels that the debtor does NOT have the ability to perform the contractual terms, the lender may demand the entire BALANCE DUE and Payable." Good Luck

Repossession letters are not required in every state.

Can you repo a car if you have title?

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. It is held in security for the loan. If you are a repossession company or agent, you will be required to have an order of repossession. But, if you are a repossession company or agent, you should already know this.

Can a car repossession be legally challenged after the fact if it can be shown that the overdue payments were received in the mail the day prior to the repossession?

How long does it take to repossess a home?

To answer your question simply, a repossession order will typically be a 60 day repossession order. If however you do not contest the repossession or don't turn up to the hearing it is more likely to be a 30 day repossession order. However, you are not clear if you have even received a notice of intended court action or a court date. There is no hard, fast, rule which states when each lender will start repossession proceedings, they can be after just 1 missed payment - the average is between 2 and 3 missed payments.

I made a agreement of payment by this Friday can they still repo me?

Yes, as long as an active repossession order exists, the vehicle will eventually be recovered. If it is seen in towing position by a recovery agent, he will take it. Keep in mind that many repossession agencies have spotters who do nothing but stake-out wanted units, or look for them in public locations where recovery agents may secure them. Any attempt to hide the vehicle or prevent the recovery could be prosecuted. Repossession is a time game, an inevitability. Hundreds of thousands of vehicles are repossessed in the US every year. Less than 1% of 1% of the vehicles up for repossession are successfully hidden for any significant time. And, some states are passing laws that will prevent parties who have active repossession orders against vehicles registered to them from registering any vehicles in that state. If you have active arrangements with the lender, hope your payment reaches them before the recovery agent is able to secure the vehicle in question. Be certain to contact the lender and get their assurance that repossession activites have been cancelled once the payment is received. Your best course of action is to take the payment to the lender, and while there have them call the repossession agency who has the active order and witness them cancelling the order.

Can you sue for wrongful repossession of a vehicle when loan was paid in full over a month and a half ago?

How do you get Proof that your car was repoed?

Two ways:1). You will receive a notice from the repossessing agency notifying you.2). You can call the local police to report it stolen, at which time they will notify you that it was repossessed.In either event, you will undoubtedly be aware that repossession is the most likely scenario, considering you hadn't made a payment for an expended period on the vehicle note, and you had received contact from the lender advising you that repossession was the next likely avenue due to your noncooperation.
