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 person re-enters the vehicle afterward then all bets are off. 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.

If a car is parked in the garage can the repo guy take it for no home insurance?

A repo guy is likely to say anything to get your car. If he's looking for it, you owe the money and he gets to take the car. Hiding it in the garage will keep him at bay for only a short time. Whether or not you have homeowner's insurance does not factor into the equation.

Can they repossess a vehicle without showing you paperwork?

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...

Can a Repo man take a car if you own it?

What is a repo man?

A 'Repo Man' is a person who gets paid by a company to repossess anything (usually cars, planes, automobiles, etc.) that hasn't been paid for in 3 months or more. The person can just take it back to the company, but he/she has to have the right papers so they can take it. Basically, if the person hasn't paid the rent (usually for cars and such) for a while, it gets repossessed.

Can a repo agent enter a garage with the assistance of the property management office to recover a vehicle that is alledgedly subject to repossession action?

Unless the repoman is dumb as a duck, he WONT try to repo a car that is not authorized by the leinholder. IF management lets him in the garage, then he can go get it.Sometimes management will go ahead and let us in to get us out of the way. If the managment opens the doors yes the repo people can remove the vehichle The repo person can not open the door. the repo person has been told to recover the vehichle per the lien holder or they would not be there. I find that most lien holders would rather work something out to get account up to date then repo the car. The lien holder makes more money if they can get payment before repo.What I do not understand is why people hide the car , what good is the car if you can't drive it without looking over your shoulder wondering when they repo agent will show up and take the car so what good is a car you cant take out of the garage or drive?
