Will you be notified if the lienholder is obtaining a court order to repossess your vehicle?

Yes. You will be served with an order to appear. On your court date, you will be ordered to surrender the vehicle and the lender will be given a replevin by the court. This is in essenece an order by the court for you to return the vehicle to the lender. When the replevin is served, you will surrender the vehicle or you will be taken to jail and remain there at least until the vehicle is surrendered, perhaps longer on felony charges.

What is the difference between a repossession and a writ of replevin?

Repossession is what is commonly thought of as a "REPO". A self-help repo is permitted by most states. "Writ of Replevin" is the other legal option that a few states require to do the same thing. The state makes money by requiring the Replevin. BOTH have the same effect on your credit. A repo is where a lender contacts someone to pick up the vehicle. You, at that time, do NOT have to surrender the vehicle. A "Writ of Replevin" is where the lender gets a court order signed by a judge for you to surrender the vehicle. It will be served by a Sheriff's officer, with the repo man in tow, and you will then have to let them take the car. Otherwise, you are in contempt and it is not worth it to defy a court order. That is the only time you have to surrender the vehicle.

Can a bank report the car stolen if you dont give the car back?

Sort of. In many states hindering repossession is a crime. It is not exactly grand theft auto, but it is comparible. More often than not, the lender would obtain an order of replevin, a court order for you to surrender the vehicle. When the repossession agent returns with this order, if you still refuse to turn over the vehicle, the law enforcement officer accompanying the agent will arrest you and take you into custody, and then you will surrender the vehicle or remain in jail.

Can a writ of replevin be used to take a vehicle from a mechanic holding it for repairs?

Yes and no. A writ of replevin is a court order to surrender a vehicle. Anyone who interferes with such can be arrested and held in contempt of court. This includes you, or any third party in possession of the vehicle. The mechanic's lien is a matter between you and the mechanic. If the repossessed vehicle is sold, and the proceeds exceed the amount of the original remaining loan balance, then any remaining money from the sale must be paid to the mechanic to satisfy his lien.

Can they repossess your car with out a court order in the state of Vermont?

They don't require a court order to repossess a vehicle... the only way a court order would be required is if the court had ordered you to give up your vehicle as collateral if you found yourself on the losing end of a lawsuit or something to that effect. A vehicle which is paid off cannot be repossessed, because the lienholder - who is the lawful owner of that vehicle while they hold the title - is reclaiming their own property after a lessee fails to meet the conditions of their contract.

Can police cross state lines to seize a veichle?

Seizure of a vehicle by a state or local police agency has to be authorized by a court in the state where the seizure is made. If the vehicle is evidence in a crime, it wouldn't be difficult or unusual to get such a court order. A police agency couldn't just cross a state line and take a vehicle to bring it back into their state without a court order. If the seizure is being made by a federal agency, no state court order is necessary.
