No. Only the lender can "repossess" a vehicle. You need to keep making the payments to protect your own credit. It is likely you would need to bring a court action, prove you are making the payments and petition the court to order a transfer of title.

It depends upon the exact wording of the title of the vehicle and if there is a written contract or a witnessed verbal agreement concerning the terms of the sale. Generally the title holder can recover a vehicle under such conditions. The best option is to obtain legal advice before taking any repossession action.

If you have a written agreement from the collection agency specifying the terms of your repayment plan and you have fulfilled (and are fulfilling) those terms as specified in the agreement, they probably cannot.

The laws of your state will prevail.

YES, IF YOU CLAIM NOT TO KNOW WHERE IT IS. If you call the bank and say I dont know where the car is its gone, they are going to tell you to report it stolen. If you stop making payments on it then they will repossess, if there is no car to repossess then you are still responsible to pay the monthly payment car or no car If you stop paying and there is no car to repossess then they at that point can take legal action against you. I dont know if its reported stolen but take my word for it you will pay somehow.

The lender can accept the payment, still repossess the vehicle or pursue litigation.

Why would a father take a daughter's car after 3 years of payments even if she was 2 payments behind but had an agreement with the bank and all he had to do was agree but instead he stole the car?

I can't answer why he took the action he did. I will say that he did not "steal it". If the lending agreement was in default the vehicle is subject to being repossessed and it is the legal right of the lien holder to do so. A lending agreement is considered defaulted if even one of the terms is not adhered to; meaning even when a payment is late the lender/lien holder can take whatever action necessary to secure their interest in the collateral/property.

This type of modification must be granted by the court so you'll need to schedule a new hearing and get the judge to sign off on your amendment.

What happens if I cancel my car contract that financed for 5 years for personal reason and its been a year and a half that I have paying the fees?

A contract is a binding legal agreement, and you cannot cancel the contract. If you fail to make your payments on time they will repossess the vehicle. They will then sell the vehicle for whatever it will bring, and you will be required to pay the difference in the selling price of the vehicle and the balance on the loan. You will also pay all repossession fees. Your credit will be ruined for 7 years due to this action.

When even one payment is missed the agreement is considered in default, and the lender has the legal right to take whatever action they deem necessary to secure their financial interest in the property.

A debt collector can take legal action at any time.

I am not a lawyer and you should consult one. Do you have a signed agreement? Have you breached that agreement in any way?
