What is the procedure for repossessing property from deal gone bad?

You must have documents stating that you own the property. and then you can feel out a repossession form or hire someone to repo the property. You can only do this if you have documents stating that the property is yours and that you are a lien holder. If you don't have this you will have to take it to small claims court and prove that the defendant owes you money on the said property. after that you will be able to get a lien put against the said property and be able to repo it.
