Does the repo guy have to let you know when he is here when he is taking your vehicle?

The "repo" man does not have to inform you if he is at your residence to repossess your vehicle. Once the vehicle has been repossessed he must call it in to either the local police department or Sheriff department. This will prevent any false stolen car reports. Also, the "repo" man does not have the authority to go into your garage or involve the police in the act of repossessing your vehicle. So, if for some reason the "repo" man does get into contact with you and threatens you by saying that he has called the police, he is lying. Bottom line, just pay your bills and you won't have to worry about the "repo" man.

In Texas law can a repo man place felony charges?

Who or what do you mean by "the repo man?" If it is the lender you are referring to, yes, they can. If they are attempting to repossess the vehicle because of your non-payment on the installment contract, AND you are concealing, or keeping them from recovering their property, they could charge you with Grand Larceny for intentionally depriving them of their property. On the other hand, if by "repo man" you mean the agent who is actually driving the tow truck, no, they could not - UNLESS that person also happens to be the lender/owner of the vehicle.

Is it legal to take your car back from title loan company after repo?

You're talking about trying to repossess it from the repossessor? Short answer, no. You're committing theft - possibly grand theft, depending on the vehicle's value. But the repo agent coming to repossess your car isn't commiting theft. Double standard? No. The thing of it is, it is NOT your car - the lienholder is the sole rightful and legitimate owner of the vehicle. The repo man isn't taking your car away - he's reclaiming the lienholder's property after you failed to meet the terms of the finance arrangement.
