Last i looked the plates STAY WITH THE DEBTOR. Maybe he planned to drive your car all weekend. Was it a nice ride? CALL the LENDER Monday morning and get it straight.
The plates belong to you, not the lender, nor the repo man. They are registered to you and are your property and responsibility.
If the plates were used on another vehicle that was involved in a crime or accident, and someone wrote down the tag number, the information would come back to you, and you would have alot of explaining to do.
If the car was reposessed with the plates still attached, and you can prove that, then the headache is with the repo man. He is responsible for the car and the personal property left with it. Once they take the car with the plates still attached, it's on them.
Only if they want to be charged with kidnapping. NO.
They repo agent will take it when your not looking. The agent still has a job to do and only get paid if the jod is complete.
No, a juvenile cannot enter into such an agreement and the repossession agent could be held legally accountable for attempting/taking part in such action.
Yes. It is perfectly legal for a repossession agent to take possession of a vehicle when they are acting on behalf of the lender. The repossession agency does not have the option of allowing the borrower to retain the vehicle even though proof is presented that payments have been rendered. Such issues are strictly between the borrower and the lender. The lender and/or court being the only parties that can rescind the repossession action.
I am not 100% on this but I am almost certain that they can as if an item is inside the home they can come in to take those
Yes. When the vehicle is repossessed it no longer belongs to you and there is no requirement to tell you where it will be stored.
That is a decision made by the lender, and some do have photographs taken before the car is seized, but it is not a legal requirement. The repossession agent/agency does not assume responsibility for any damage to a vehicle that happens while it is being recovered.
In Canada or the United States a Repossession Agent usually works for a car company, a boat company or anything that costs a lot of money and the person who owns is is in default of their payments. These people at great risk go out on the streets, find whatever it is that they are sent to reprocess and take it back for a percentage of what the thing is that they just reprocessed is valued at.
Not typically, in fact in several years experience in the industry, I have never heard of such a practice. Repossession, beyond being a waiting game, is a game of opportunity. When the repossession agent finds it, he will take it. The last thing any of them want to do is give you prior warning that they are on your trail, and to give you the opportunity to hide it and make their job more difficult.
