It really depends on where you reside. Some states such as Illinois, under their new licensing laws for recovery agents mandate that the repossessor notify the police before the repossession and again after it is complete. Most states require notice after the repossession but there are a few jurisdiction in some of those states that require prenotice to the local law enforcement agency.

NO THE ORDER IS GIVEN FROM THE LENDER TO RECOVERY AGENT THE POLICE NEVER GET THIS INFO?

The police only know when the tow driver is enroute to pick up the vehicle. If the owner calls in the morning to report their car stolen, we will have a note stating the car was repo'd and to contact their lender. Most drivers do not do this, even though they should. We do not keep any records. And the lender CANNOT report the vehicle stolen.

no in the state of pa police are notified only when the car is being taken by the recovery agent they do not know ahead of time

Can you be arrested for repossession of a car?

Repossession of a carDo you mean, "can you be arrested for not allowing repossession of a car?" If so, then yes, you can.If you meant 'can you be arrested for repossessing a car?" you can't as long as you have a permit/license to do so and conduct yourself in a lawful manner duriong the actual repossession.Added; In potentially violent situations, repossessors will sometimes call law enforcement and ask them to 'stand by' while they take the vehicle, but only to prevent a breach of the peace. Law enforcment will play no part in assisting in the actual repossession of the vehicle, inasmuch as repossession is done under a civil court order, and is not a criminal matter

Repossession laws in the State of Texas?

Pay the note or lose the car. The vehicle may be recovered from any location that is discovered provided the repossession agent does not violate the FFDCP Act or break the peace. If the debtor breaks the peace, that is on the debtor; many go to jail for such behavior.If the repossession agent is not able to notify the debtor that he has secured the vehicle, the agent is legal bound to contact the jurisdictional law enforcement agency that a repossession has taken place with 24 hours of securing the vehicle. Most contact law enforcement as they are driving away from the recovery.

Can you repo a car if you have title?

When you purchased the car, you may have received a lien title from the state. This is not a clear title of ownership. The lender in essence still owns the vehicle, at least part of it. It is held in security for the loan. If you are a repossession company or agent, you will be required to have an order of repossession. But, if you are a repossession company or agent, you should already know this.

How do you know if your car has been stolen or repossessed?

RepossessionCall your local dispatching service for your law enforcement. The Repo man is required to report the repo immediately to them. You could also call the bank or company that has financed your loan. In Illinois, we are required to report repossessions immediately to the police. In some cities, the police want to know BEFORE we repossess. So when you call your local P.D. to report your car stolen, they can let you know if the car has been repossessed.
