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.
