No. Tennessee law simply states that the lender or it's agent may not "breach the peace". This is usually viewed as causing a loud scene. Most repo agents will pick up the car when the owner is asleep or out somewhere shopping to avoid a confrontation.

Yes. The repossession fee is like a tow bill. They did pick up the vehicle. The storage fee is the time it takes to get the vehicle off of their lot. Each day adds another day of storage fees.

What is the difference between a repossession and a writ of replevin?

Repossession is what is commonly thought of as a "REPO". A self-help repo is permitted by most states. "Writ of Replevin" is the other legal option that a few states require to do the same thing. The state makes money by requiring the Replevin. BOTH have the same effect on your credit. A repo is where a lender contacts someone to pick up the vehicle. You, at that time, do NOT have to surrender the vehicle. A "Writ of Replevin" is where the lender gets a court order signed by a judge for you to surrender the vehicle. It will be served by a Sheriff's officer, with the repo man in tow, and you will then have to let them take the car. Otherwise, you are in contempt and it is not worth it to defy a court order. That is the only time you have to surrender the vehicle.

If you call the Bank; Finance Company and let them know that you are going to return the vehicle to them. They tell you where you can drop the vehicle off and you deliver it to that place.

How do you get the car if you are the cosigner and making the payments?

As the cosigner on the contract, you are an equal owner of the vehicle. You cannot steal your own property. But, if you choose to simply go and pick up the vehicle, contact local law enforcement to let them know your intent and the reason so that when the party who currently has possession of the vehicle comes out to their empty driveway, LEOs know the vehicle was not stolen.You might be required to get a notice or order from your local court, possibly a writ of repossession. Contact the clerk's office of your local jurisdiction and ask; they will likely be happy to help you with this info.Your other option, if you do not want the vehicle, is to contact the finance company and discuss possible voluntary repossession. You may need to seek legal assistance to have your name removed from the contract, and be prepared to show/prove you made the payments and the other party did not.

What is your obligation if you take the car back to the bank before they come to get it?

When the car gets back to the bank, its sold and the debtor owes the difference between what it sold for and the outstanding balance on the loan. IF it sells for more than is owed, debtor has to pick up the check for the surplus. There are no differences between a voluntary repossession/relinquishment of vehicle by the borrower and the forced repossession/recovery by the lender, except for some of the repossession costs such as towing. FYI, a bank will not allow you to return the vehicle in the sense that you can "drop it off" somewhere.

Can repossession happen in the middle of the night?

The repo man will pick up the vehicle anytime and anywhere he can do it while watching out for his personal safety.

Can a Repo man take a car if you own it?

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.
