In general, yes, provided that there is no "breach of the peace", which means that you cannot break into a locked garage or cause any damage to property.

Is it legal to repossess a car from someone's personal property such as their yard or driveway?

Yes. Since the vehicle is no longer the property of the former owner, the lending institution is allowed to have their agent (repo man) recover their property for them. Their agent is allowed to go anywhere that is not fenced, locked or otherwise restricted. If you deliberatel hide the vehicle or prevent the lending institution from gaining acces, it can be considered a form of theft, since the vehicle is no longer yours. * In addition, if the lender has obtained a replevin order the vehicle must be surrendered. When a court order has been issued the agent may enter a locked area or posted area or do whatever necessary short of physical violence or property damage to seize the vehicle, cutting a chain and/or a lock is not considered property damage. Be advised, in most states attempting to hide or prevent repossession of a vehicle where a replevin order is in place can create serious legal consequences for the borrower.

No one can tell you you can't lock gates on your property. It may be a crime to evade a repo by hiding vehicle etc but they would have to prove it another way. Get an attorney if you are charged with anything or take the free one. On another note since they are trying to repossess and you can't use it, you should put it somewhere they can get at it to stop the harassment, otherwise next time you go to gas station or store, you will be walking home.

What is required to place a contstruction lien in Ontario?

In order to place a construction lien you need to hire a lawyer to place a caveat against the persons property. This application is completed through the courts and a caveat is then placed against the persons property. It kind of depends who you are suing. Obtaining the legal address for a property is easy you just need the persons address then you complete a tax search which will show you the legal address for that property. You then need to pull a title search based on the legal address to make sure the property is in that persons name. for more information on mortgages and foreclosures go to www.lowmortgageraterefinance.us

No. They can only collect the total owed them once.

(If they're smart, they'll just go straight to the co-signer, since the co-signer is presumably creditworthy, and will pay up without much argument. Of course, then you have Dad to deal with!!)

Can I repossess a vehicle to a car that I signed the title to my ex during our divorce in 2008 if he still has not had the title transferred out of my name?

that would just make it easy for him to go and have the title transfered into his name after you take back possession of the vehicle and then report it stolen. which means you would be charged with grand theft auto/receiving stolen property, which is a felony. if it was stated in your divorce decree that he is awarded possession of the vehicle, then it is something that you would have to take to court. i would recommend contacting an attorney to find out the laws on this. there may be a statute of limitations on how long he has to transfer a title.
