No. The only vehicle that can be repossessed is the vehicle for which the agent has a valid order of repossession, OR in some cases, a vehicle the agent encounters (such as reported by a camera car) in the process of locating another repossession. Anything other would be wrongful repossession or possibly grand theft auto and extortion.

Get a court order to cut the chain and sieze the vehicle.


No. because not verifying the vin could lead to a misrepo of another vehicle for which the repo company would be sued.


when repo man repossess the car and was in an accident before you can get it back, what happens


No. Unless they're given permission from the owner of the other vehicle, they can only legally enter and move the vehicle they have an order for repossession on. If they move another vehicle, they're guilty of a criminal offense.


Usually the bank has a list of repo companies they do biz with and they pick one to repo the car. Maybe the closest to the car, maybe the cheapest, whatever.


The license plates are yours to keep and transfer to another vehicle if you wish.


You give the repo man the keys to the vehicle and let him take the vehicle.


One car isn't where you left it and the other one is gone. He's not supposed to move another vehicle, but if no damage was done, you're not going to gain anything by sueing him. You'll be spending money for a lawyer when you're going to need it to pay the repo fees and any judgment you MIGHT win won't cover the attorney's fees.


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.


NO, a lease is simply a contract like a loan. DEFAULT of either calls for repossession.


No, they cannot. By law, they're only entitled to enter and move the vehicle they have an order for repossession on. The only way they can move another vehicle is if the owner of that vehicles gives them permission to do such.



When the tow truck makes contact with another vehicle it is in possession of that tow/repo company. If they connect to another vehicle to "move" it they are in possession of that vehicle without cause or permission. This is technically a stolen auto at that time. It is NOT legal to move other vehicles to get to another. A good repossession agent with proper use of his tools can get a vehicle out of even the most tightly squeezed places. Before you accuse a repo agent of "stealing" a vehicle, make sure he actually did!!!


A repo worker does not normally pick up a vehicle unless he has an order from the lien holder (usually the creditor who financed the vehicle). If you own your vehicle outright with no liens against it, the repo person probably picked it up by mistake.


Yes they can, as long as it is the correct vehicle.


Yes, if the Lien Holder of the vehicle gives them permission to repo.



There is no company with the name "Repo Truck", but "repossession" of a vehicle simply means the financial lending company "takes back" the vehicle, because monthly payments on the vehicle have ceased.



You need to have a lien on the vehicle and reasonable cause to repo it, whether it be late payments, risk of losing the vehicle in impound, etc.


The repo agency does one thing; repossess the vehicle. I don't know of any case where a lender could even draw from your pay. tThey hire a repo agency to get the vehicle, and they report your delinquency so your credit score suffers..The repo agency does one thing; repossess the vehicle.

It may be alittle tough to find a finance company to finance the vehicle but you should be able to with some cash down.


No. A repo agent is only permitted to move and enter the vehicle which they have an order for repossession on.


He will report it as a stolen vehicle.


Only if they do not have the correct paperwork from the finance company whom has the right to repo the vehicle.
