joe, think about it. YOU are the owner, they are the lender. OWNERS report cars stolen. Some of those lying,cheatin,lowdown repo people will tell you its reported stolen to try to get you to GIVE IT UP. IF its REALLY stolen, YOU(the owner) should report it stolen to help the lender out. It will benefit you in the long run.
The answer to your question is simple; Of course the lender,ie:LIENHOLDER can report the vehicle stolen. Here's why; even though the registered "owner's" name may be on the registration, until you FINISH making your PAYMENTS to the LENDER, they still very much own it. Which is why financing takes you 3-5 years, before you actually "own" what ever it is that you've purchased.
Actually this is another one of those ones that depends on state laws where the vehicle is registered.
At the time the vehicle was taken into possession of the OWNER it was not stolen and so once the loan goes into default that does not constitute theft but is infact a civil matter that local law enforcement has no effect on. That is why we have the two methods of "Self-help" and "Judicial Process" to recover a vehicle.
The lender could actually face criminal charges for filing a faults police report when they know in fact that the vehicle is in the possession of the OWNER. Now if they receive notice from the OWNER that they no longer have possession and that they did not give permission to whom ever is currently in possession of the vehicle then that may be classified as theft.
Ultimately though no repossession can take place using force or threat of force and that includes telling the OWNER they are driving a stolen vehicle. That will come to bite any asset recovery agency in the ass if such conversation was ever recorded or otherwise proven in a court of law.
In other words just don't do it. Best practices for legitimate repossession companies usually follow these and other strick guidelines.
Not all repossession agents are low life lieing scum. Only a low life lieing dead beat debtor would feel that way about us. ;-)
I don't believe the first poster said ALL repo people are lieing cheating...etc. he said some.Broad statements about any group are usually not valid.Iam amazed at the repo guys on this site(and there are plenty including the moderators) who try and defend any action by a repo person legal or not just because they are fellow repoers.Maybe they will figure it out when their liabilty insurance skyrockets because of the actions of a stupid few.....then again maybe not.
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.
