The driveway is the preferred location for taking repos.

They can take it from anywhere that it can be recovered without breach of peace.

A "FRIEND" would bring the car TO the repoman.

YES. The repo company can take the car from anywhere they want with the exception of a boot on the vehicle and/or the vehicle is in a locked property such as behind a locked fence surrounding the property or locked inside of a garage. If you do not let the person onto your property with a locked fence surrounding this is a voilation of the law and ofcourse YOU can have them arrested on the spot.

Can you prosecute a repo man for trespassing on private property to repo a auto?

Repo agents are not allowed to break the law. Technically this includes trespassing, but the mere fact that someone was on your property does not in and of itself does not usually legally constitute "trespass". Generally, the burden is on the complainant to prove that entry was in fact trespass, by showing that you have taken steps to defend the property. At the very least, this will probably include posting warnings/signs that the property is private and that you do not grant permission to enter or pass through it. A repo man can't break into your garage or cut a lock from a gate, but if the car was on your unprotected driveway, it's probably not legally "trespass" for him to walk onto the driveway, break into the car (this is not illegal, because he's acting as an agent of the "rightful owner", i.e. the bank), and take it. I guess the answer is that you can certainly contact the police to file a complaint, but after reviewing the facts, they may tell you that legally speaking no trespass occurred and they're not going to do anything about it. You're not going to get the car back in any event, so doing this unless the repo agent egregiously broke the law is really just kind of spiteful.

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.

Can a repo man proceed with repo after being ordered off property if he does not have a court order?

They can if they have an order for repossession. You can ask to see the order, and if they do NOT have the order, then they can not take the car. The repossession would become invalid without the order to take the car.

Legally probably not,that assumes you do not own the propery or the property(like a private road) to get to your property so that would be trespass.But someone has to call the police to enforce the trespass violation.After the repo guy has the car there is not much you can do except to sue the lender or repo guy. Gated,YES.Gated and locked no.

It isn't your car. If you defaulted on the loan, you are no longer the owner. The repo man can take numerous steps to re-claim the property up to seeking law enforcement assistance. He is the agent of the owner and reclaiming the owner's property is how he gets paid.

Can a repo man come to your job and take your car while you are at work or can you stop him?

I worked with a guy that had the repo man come to work to take his vehicle, so yes they can come to your work. If you haven't been making the payments and they decide to repo your car that is that and I don't believe they have to go through any sort of legal procedures to come and take your car. You didn't pay so they come and take back their property, simple as that unfortunately for you.

Can the repo man take your car if you leave your car locked behind a gate in your backyard?

No.Not if the gate is locked. They would have to get a warrent. * The repo man will not come with a warrant. The Sheriff might if the bank has sued and a court has issued a Writ of Replevin. They can come on your property and as long as they do no damage they can take the car.

No one has the right to enter your property to repo a vehicle. I your vehicle is out in the street, then its fair game. If you see the repo man coming but has not hooked up to your vehicle, you legally still have possession of the vehicle. Once the vehicle has made contact with the truck the vehicle belongs to him.
