A car that is actually YOURS cannot be repossessed, as it's paid off. If you have a vehicle being repossessed, they're able to do this because it's actually the finance company which owns that vehicle and possesses their title. A recovery agent can, on behalf of the lienholder, go onto private property in order to recover the lienholder's property - with limitations. They cannot cross a locked gate, and they cannot enter a locked building.
The car can only be repossessed from a locked garage if the car is spotted in the garage from a window or a crack, but the repo company cannot enter the garage if the car was not visibly spotted.
Yes ... you can see it ... anyone can see it ... it is in plain view. However, it is on private property and a warrant may be required to remove it unless it is being repossessed.
your car cannot be reposessed if it is in your own garage
No, they were not trespssing in order to commit a crime. They had a lawful reason to be on your property. sorri
NO. Call a local attorney now. be prepared to show some type of proof that the car was ion the garage.
No Way. Its Your Stuff !
No, since the car is no longer considered "your" property.
Yes You Are !!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, as long as the repossessor does not commit a "breach of the peace" in doing so. In other words, they can't break into your garage and take it, but if it's just sitting on your driveway or in a parking lot (even if that parking lot is technically "private property" in the sense that it's owned by someone other than the government), too bad for you.
They will use any means necessary to take your car. If it won't cause property damage, then they have no problem with just opening the garage and taking it away. Whether it's legal or not, it would be their word against yours in court.
No. That would not only result in a breach of peace charge, but probably trespass and tampering with private property as well.
Yes, the car can be repossessed from any open location, your driveway, an open garage,and any kind of parking lot, etc. Sorry.
Yes, as long as the repossesor does not commit a breach of peace as defined by the laws of the state where the act takes place.
Yes. If the person repossessing the car finds it then they can take it!
I assume you mean other than your home address. But the answer is yes, it can be repossessed anywhere, provided they are not breaking and entering, such as a locked garage....
Can I get my personal property from the car if it has already been repossed without paying a fee?
Not legally, its private property. They still will thou. If you can lock it from the inside most wont destroy property. If its unlocked say goodbye to your car. Even if the side door is unlocked they can go in and unlock it.
Yes they can. The only exception to this - Is if your yard has a locked or closed fence. If your yard is secured by a fence the "repo" men/women cannot legally enter your yard.
It can if the lender gets a writ of replevin, the deputy can take it.
Call your finance company.
Yes, private property does not obsolve you of your responsiblity.
Yes, repossessions can (and often do) occur on private property. There are limitations imposed on the recovery agents, and they know how to plan accordingly. IMO, better that car (which is actually the lien holder's, which is why it can be repossessed in the first place) be repossessed while you're at home than while you're out in public somewhere and left stranded.
As long as there is a lien on the vehicle the lienholder has the right to repossess the property
No, repo persons can not enter your residence without permission and an attached garage is your property.
No, you no longer have anything to trade (the car is now the property of the repo company not you).
